Undermining the democracy of America is a game being played by the world’s most wealthy. American pluralism is being replaced by an out of control oligarchy that is outspending Super PACs and launching multimillion dollar ad campaigns and bankrolling agitators.
ig money is controlling public policy and crippling the average American’s right to a representative government. To wit, poll after poll has shown that Americans want tougher immigration laws and want to stem the tide of illegal immigration. According to an article in Breitbart, however, the billionaire Koch brothers just don’t care what the average American wants. The brothers recently announced that they are funding a multimillion pro-immigration ad campaign to push amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in the United States ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
The United Nation’s Deputy Ambassador Jon Lerner, who helped launch Mark Zuckerberg’s Open Borders lobbying group is also part of a pro-amnesty big tech group that includes Facebook’s Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Microsoft’s CEO Steve Allmer. Open Borders has also partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to push a plan for amnesty ahead of the midterm elections. I won’t bother to hunt the dollars that poured into Open Borders, suffice it to say that it is bloated with big tech money.
Not only are wealthy backers subverting the will of the American people via pro-amnesty non-goverment organizations (NGOs), they are not above meddling in U.S. elections. J. Christian Adams, President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a nonprofit law firm that defends election integrity said that Soros is also spending big to transform elections. “George Soros is involved in every aspect of manipulating the rules of American elections,” Adams told the Washington Free Beacon. “From funding Pew’s efforts to centralize election administration, to fueling litigation that attacks election integrity laws, to fanning the flames of racial agitation and polarization, Soros dollars are doing all they can to fundamentally transform American elections.”
The progressive left is also being pimped by big donors to get rid of that pesky U.S. Constitution. The left’s latest and newest darling, David Hogg, the Parkland, Florida student who is being used by activists to chip away the Second Amendment, is not the talking head of an organic student movement but one heavily funded by anti-Constitutional groups. The National School Walkout was funded by Linda Sarsour’s Women’s March. Sarsour is a well funded political agitator who is publicly on billionaire George Soros’ payroll. Not content to just agitate Congress, Hogg followed the walkout with a social media campaign meant to pressure gun manufacturer investors.
Soros funds countless anti-American and anti-establishment groups, including Indivisible, a U.S. grassroots group that has vowed to fight Trump’s administration and policies, the Woman’s March on Washington, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, among others. Oregon Governor Kate Brown is just the latest public official to publicly turn tricks for Soros when she accepted his money before refusing to send National Guard troops to the Mexican-U.S. Border ahead of the illegal immigrant caravan that is threatening to cross the U.S. border.
With Soros group contributions somewhere in excess of $25 billion, it underscores the urgent need to curb unelected and undue influence in U.S elections and policies. In eastern Europe, where Soros was heavily invested in meddling in the Hungarian government, Prime Minister Viktor Orban introduced in February a “Stop Soros” bill to legislators in parliament with the express intention of “empower[ing] the interior minister to ban NGOs that support migration and pose a national security risk.”
Obviously, the question isn’t whether our institutions are being bought by powerful NGOs but how are we to curb the wholesale pimping of our sovereignty, such as the millions flowing into the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Media Matters and American Blue? In a recent Weekly Standard article, journalist Jeryl Bier says, “The SPLC’s already impressive endowment grew a staggering 35 percent in fiscal year 2017 to more than $432 million. Including operating funds, total assets topped $477 million.” And anyone familiar with the SPLC knows that it is decidedly against conservative and Christian ideals.
It’s time to follow Poland’s lead and pass legislation limiting the influence and power that NGOs stuffed to the gills with partisan billionaire money is having in the affairs of our nation. It is also time for more transparency of 501(c)(3) organizations who’s backers include oligarchs such as Zuckerberg and Soros.
And it is time to push for the enforcement of antitrust laws by prosecuting Google and Facebook, who are subverting conservative voices on news and social media sites with a deluge of dollars that threaten our free speech, our right to bear arms, and our right to have a government by and for the people.
Our republic has been for sale for far too long and allowing pimps like Zuckerberg, Soros, the Koch Brothers and others to undermine the will of the American voter. But we can’t just blame the wealthy. We must also pass legislation and enforce funding rules to deter governors like Kate Brown and other elected officials from being pimped for a cheap trick while cheating on their state voters. Draining the swamp will be ineffective if we don’t first tackle the fundamental issue of who is paying to play and shift the balance of power back to the American citizens. Reign well.
