COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Massey Energy "profoundly reckless" in mine disaster; Tea Party as useful idiots; Soros, U.S. Chamber - 05/22/11

In April 2010, an explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia claimed 40 lives. An independent investigation initiated by that state has found that the mine's operator - Massey Energy - was to blame for the tragedy and was "profoundly reckless" [1] [2]. There are also major political components to the tragedy: 1. Massey - led by their former CEO Don Blankenship - played a major role in West Virginia politics [3]. 2. In September 2009, Massey sponsored the ""Friends of America Rally" which featured Ted Nugent, Hank Williams Jr, and Sean Hannity. The site friendsofamericarally.com...

David Koch gave far-left, Mex. gov't collaborators ACLU $10 million - 02/25/11

Billionaire David Koch (see Koch family) joined with George Soros, the Ford Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation to each give the American Civil Liberties Union $10 million to fight the PATRIOT Act [1]. Reasonable people can disagree on the PATRIOT Act, but fighting it or trying to reform it was probably the correct thing to do. Whatever the merits of opposing the PATRIOT Act, giving money to the ACLU is never the correct thing to do. The ACLU is a far-left group that strongly supports and enables illegal immigration and that's even collaborating with the Mexican government in...

Leftwing groups complain about immigration enforcement interfering with workers' rights while supporting the situtation - 10/27/09

Three leftwing groups [1] have released a report (press release here) complaining about the Department of Homeland Security conducting immigration raids at locations that are considering unionization or otherwise "interfering" with workers' rights. To cut to the chase, visiting "liberals" should consider this anecdote offered by Daphne Eviatar of the Washington Independent (link): For example, in September 2008, an employer calling itself "Employers All Dry Water Damage Experts" recruited day laborers in New Orleans and transported them to Beaumont, Texas, where the workers claim, according...

George Soros gives $5 million to push Obamacare (HCAN, NCLR, ACORN, SEIU, etc...) - 08/11/09

George Soros has contributed $5 million to the group Health Care For America Now (healthcareforamericanow.org) so that they can push Obamacare. That's dwarfed by the $35 million he's giving to help/"help" children in New York (in partnership with the federal government, [1]). As discussed here, HCAN is considered a bit on the wimpy side by the far-left, such as Jane Hamsher. That's despite HCAN including some true "liberal" stalwarts. Their steering committee includes the following: * ACORN * AFL CIO * American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) * Campaign for...

Casey Sanchez/SPLC, Frank Sharry, Andrea Nill/CAP smear FAIR over non-existent connection (Dave Bennion) - 06/17/09

From a FAIR press release (link): The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has launched its most irresponsible attack to date against the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). The SPLC claims that Shawna Forde, the alleged killer of a little girl and her father during an Arizona home invasion, had ties to FAIR. Although no association exists -- or ever has -- between Ms. Forde and FAIR, the SPLC and organizations advocating mass amnesty and open borders have used this tragedy to fuel their on-going smear campaign against FAIR and other immigration policy organizations in order to...

Appleseed wants changes to immigration courts (Soros-linked) - 06/10/09

The unbylined Associated Press article "Group recommends immigration court improvements" (link) sounds OK at first glance: A national advocacy group recommended Wednesday improving the country's beleaguered immigration court system by reforming how judges are selected and promoting impartiality. A study by Appleseed, a non-profit that works to reform the justice system, also suggested improving the accuracy of translations, reducing use of videoconferencing for hearings and ensuring court representation for immigrants. Then, you learn more about the group from pages like this or this,...

David Rockefeller, George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Ted Turner, Michael Bloomberg, and Oprah hold secret meeting on economy. No, really. - 05/26/09

On May 5, a secret meeting was held in New York City apparently to discuss the global financial crisis. Those in attendance included Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller Jr., George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. No, really. The source with the scoop was Irish Central (link), and ABC News verified that each of those listed attended the meeting (link): "The overwhelming reason for the meeting was need -- that was the issue that galvanized everyone to participate," Patricia Stonesifer, senior advisor to the Gates foundation's trustees, Bill and Melinda Gates...

Huffington Post investigative journalism arm funded by George Soros associate - 05/09/09

Earlier this year, the Huffington Post announced the creation of an "Investigative Fund" to do investigative journalism. The hilarity of the HuffPost doing real journalism is illustrated by the fact that almost six weeks later they haven't produced anything [1] and by their Z-list celebrities who had previously used a related tag [2]. And, while the announcements [3][4] mentioned the name of the Fund, they didn't mention the Soros connection (link): The program's startup budget will be $1.75 million. The money will be provided by the Huffington Post and the Atlantic Philanthropies. The...

George Soros funding ACLU, SPLC immigration projects - 04/29/09

The list of the 2009 Soros Justice Fellows has been released, and a list is at [1]. The two involving are: Sam Brooke; lawyer; Southern Poverty Law Center; Montgomery, AL Brooke will engage in advocacy and public education to curb arbitrary detentions and abuses at Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the southeastern United States. Amalia Greenberg Delgado; lawyer; American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California; San Francisco, CA Greenberg Delgado will develop a public education program to counter myths about immigrants and crime, and advocate for improved law-enforcement...

Rosa Brooks to Pentagon; CFR, Soros; her Darwinistic, anti-American immigration policy; journalism bailout - 04/09/09

Former Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks is going through the revolving door again, this time to be an advisor at the Defense Department, specifically to Michele Flournoy the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. There's a lot about her not to like; here's just some of it: 1. She was affiliated with George Soros' Open Society Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations. 2. During the Clinton years, she advised Harold Koh in his previous position at the State Department. 3. In her farewell (for now) column, she advocates for a "government bailout of journalism" (link). In addition to...

Soros-funded Democratic immigration push might ditch business interests - 03/28/09

According to Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times, unspecified immigration groups will be making a push for comprehensive immigration reform this fall that would see the Democrats try to get it on their own without bringing business interests into their big, crooked tent: link (See also last month's "Hilda Solis to prefer labor enforcement to immigration enforcement?") Under their scheme, there'd be a massive amnesty, following by: an independent commission that would assess labor and industry data to decide how many foreign workers should be allowed into the country. The system, designed...

Soros-linked Justice Strategies calls 287g program a "failure" (Joe Arpaio) - 03/04/09

Daniel Gonzalez of the Arizona Republic offers "Report: ICE program used by Arpaio a failure" (link): Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's continuing and controversial crackdown on illegal immigration and the federal program that lets him identify and arrest undocumented immigrants is a financial and public-safety failure, according to a new report. The program, known as 287 (g), has been touted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a public-safety measure aimed at removing criminal illegal immigrants. But the Sheriff's Office and other participating agencies have focused on easy...

Far-left CAF raves about Stimulus Bill ("Almost As Pure As Ivory Soap") - 01/28/09

Bernie Horn from the Campaign for Americas Future offers "Obama's Economic Recovery Plan Is Almost As Pure As Ivory Soap" (ourfuture.org/blog-entry/2009010527/obama-s-economic-recovery-plan-almost-pure-ivory-soap): ...The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is a remarkably "clean" bill. Only between 1.5 and 3 percent is being wasted on tax cuts for business. Put another way, the bill is about 98 percent pure - money dedicated to good, progressive causes... The bottom line: This is the biggest and boldest progressive legislation in 40 years... The co-directors of CAF are Roger Hickey and...

"Soros Flunky Runs Obama's Pro-U.N. Policy" (Eric Schwartz) - 01/12/09

From this: In violation of Barack Obama's promise to run an open and transparent transition to the next administration, an associate of convicted document thief Sandy Berger has been secretly meeting with far-left groups under the auspices of the Obama-Biden Transition Project to develop a range of pro-U.N. policies. These include placing "more [U.N.] blue helmets on U.S. troops" and forcing the U.S. to join the U.N.'s International Criminal Court (ICC)... ...While Obama comes across in the media as a "moderate" or "centrist" in foreign policy, his Transition Project is developing an...

Campaign to Defend America launches anti-John McCain ad (George Soros, MoveOn, CAP, SEIU, Fund for America) - 03/05/08

A group called "Campaign to Defend America" ("CDA") has released an anti-John McCain ad that you can see here: youtube.com/watch?v=cN10_6pyshQ . They're supposedly going to be spending in the low seven figures running it on TV. It points out various ways that McCain is "McSame as Bush". Cute. And, it also ends with a rather questionable photo of McCain hugging Bush. When I first heard about this, one name flashed like a neon sign everywhere I looked. And, it turns out I was right. From this we learn that the CDA got $1 million from the Fund for America ("FFA"), which in turn was funded by $2....
