George Soros, the Puppet Master

George Soros is a brilliant mastermind, the closest thing we have to a real-life Bond villain in human history. He thinks strategically, targets sources of leverage, and strives to bring about structural change in global institutions.

While America’s political movers and shakers invest their fortunes in high-profile presidential and congressional contests, Democratic hyper-donor Soros directs his wealth into a stealthy 2016 campaign to advance one of the progressive movement’s core goals — subverting the American justice system.

The billionaire financier has channeled more than $3 million into seven local district attorney campaigns in six states over the past year — an amount that surpasses the sums spent on the 2016 presidential campaign by all but a handful of rivals.

Typically, D.A. races are not big-buck magnets, so the Soros money becomes disproportionately influential.

His money funds African-American and Hispanic contenders for these powerful local seats, all of whom run on platforms which are aligned with Soros’ goals — like reducing racial disparities in sentencing and directing some drug offenders into diversion programs rather than trial. This is without a doubt the most tangible action in a progressive push to identify, prepare and finance criminal justice reform-oriented candidates for jobs that have been held by experienced incumbents and serve as pipelines to the federal courts — and it has touched off furious reactions among opponents angry about the outside interference in local elections.

That is a remarkably long time horizon for someone as old as Soros to embrace. It is multi-generational in scope. Perhaps Soros expects his sons to complete his vision, but our guess is that his wealth has funded a shadowy and sprawling organization that operates tax-free to bring about what can only be considered a profound political transformation.

Soros runs rings around the Koch brothers and everyone else, yet draws hardly any attention from the media. He drills down to state if not county levels when it comes to judges as well. Also, he spearheads the Secretary of State Project. which helps elect various secretaries of state — positions responsible for safeguarding the integrity of voting practices and results — and can be manipulated, as was likely the explanation for Al Franken's victory over Norm Coleman in Minnesota. There is no branch of government — federal, state, or county — that Soros does not intend to manipulate.

The amounts Soros spends — a few million here, a few million there — look inconsequential beside the sums invested by someone like Sheldon Adelson, who threw 100 million into the 2012 campaign. But Soros is far more effective.

The recent release of emails revealing the extent of his ties with the Clintons and the Democrats was studiously ignored by the mainstream media. They simply have no desire to cover, much less attack him.
