Judicial Watch Sues for Soros Documents – Files FOIA Lawsuits Against State Department and USAID for Records about Funding and Political Activities of George Soros’ Open Society Foundations in Romania and Colombia

Judicial Watch now has four FOIA lawsuits relating to the Obama administration’s funding for Soros’ Open Society Foundations operations 

 

Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for records relating to their funding of the political activities of the Soros Open Society Foundations of Romania (Judicial Watch v. U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (No. 1:18-cv-00667)) and the Soros Open Society Foundations of Colombia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:18-cv-00668)).

The Soros Open Society Foundations of Romania lawsuit was filed after State and USAID failed to substantively respond to an October 16, 2017, FOIA request seeking among other records:

  • All records relating to any contracts, grants or other allocations/disbursements of funds by the State Department to the Open Society Foundation – Romania and/or its personnel and/or any OSFR subsidiary or affiliate.
  • All assessments, evaluations, reports or similar records relating to the work of Open Society Foundation – Romania and/or its subsidiaries or affiliated organizations.

The Soros Open Society Foundations of Colombia lawsuit was filed after State failed to respond to an October 23, 2017, FOIA request seeking among other records:

  • All records regarding any contracts, grants or other allocations/disbursements of funds by the State Department to the Open Society Foundation – Colombia and/or any OSF subsidiaries/affiliates, and/or OSF personnel operating in Colombia, as well as the following entities: Fundacion Ideas para la Paz; La Silla Vacia; DeJusticia; Corporacion Nuevo Arco Iris; Paz y Reconciliacion; Global Drug Policy Program; and news portal Las Dos Orillas.
  • All records of communication, whether by e-mails, text messages, or instant chats, between any officials, employees or representatives of the State Department in Colombia, including Ambassador Kevin Whitaker and any officials, employees or representatives of the Open Society Foundation, its subsidiaries/affiliates, and/or those entities identified in the first bullet.

As in other parts of the world, a number of Soros-funded entities and projects in Romania are also funded by the United States Government. The Romanian Center for Independent Journalism, which is supported by the Open Society Institute in New York, recently received $17,000 from the State Department.

In February 2017, Laura Silber of Open Society Foundations reportedly condemned “illiberal governments” in the Balkans, such as Macedonia, Albania and Romania, for working against the Soros NGOs. In Romania, in March 2017, the leader of the governing party reportedly charged that the Soros foundations “that he has funded since 1990 have financed evil.”

Soros’ NGOs in Colombia are reportedly receiving millions from USAID:

Verdad Abierta, a web-based portal created by Teresa Ronderos, director of the Open Society Program on Independent Journalism, boasts on its website that it receives support from USAID. Abierta has helped rewrite Colombia’s history, elevating terrorists to the same level as the legitimate police and military forces, and rebranding decades of massacres, kidnappings, child soldiering, and drug trafficking by a criminal syndicate as simply “50 years of armed conflict.”

Fundacion Ideas para la Paz, once led by peace negotiator Sergio Jaramillo, now a member of the oversight “junta,” is funded by the Open Society Foundations and has received more than $200,000 in U.S. tax dollars.

The left-wing news portal La Silla Vacia, another Open Society initiative, also boasts of being a USAID grantee. Its columnist, Rodrigo Uprimny, whose NGO DeJusticia also partners with USAID and Open Society, is considered one of the architects of the peace deal.

Former National Liberation Army terrorist Leon Valencia—Open Society collaborator and grantee—has received at least $1,000,000 in USAID funding through his NGOs Corporacion Nuevo Arco Iris and Paz y Reconciliacion, and left-wing news portal Las Dos Orillas, which he co-founded.

In 2016, Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave more than $3.3 million to organizations operating in Colombia. Several of those organizations have also been financially supported by the United States government, having received more than $5 million from the Department of State, USAID, and the Inter-American Foundation (a federal agency) in recent years. One of the Soros-funded entities, an LGBT advocacy organization, was also selected by the Inter-American Foundation as a partner organization in its Colombia peace project initiative.

“It is time for Americans to be allowed to see State Department documentation regarding the public funding of Soros’ Open Society Foundations,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The billionaire George Soros needs zero assistance from taxpayers to promote his far-left agenda abroad.”

Judicial Watch now has three FOIA lawsuits relating to the Obama administration’s funding for Soros’ operations. Judicial Watch is pursuing information about Soros’ activities in Macedonia and Albania, as well. The former Prime Minister of Macedonia Nikola Gruevski reportedly called for a “de-Sorosization” of society. In February 2017, Judicial Watch reported that the U.S. government has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia in collusion with George Soros.

In a March 2017, letter to Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson, six U.S. Senators (Sens. Lee (R-UT), Inhofe (R-OK), Tillis (R-NC), Cruz (R-TX), Perdue (R-GA) and Cassidy (R-LA)) called on the secretary to investigate the relations between USAID and the Soros Foundations and how U.S. tax dollars are being used by the State Department and the USAID to support left-of-center political groups who seek to impose left-leaning policies in countries such as Macedonia and Albania.

Who’s Behind the Drug Crisis?

America’s Survival

by

Under the “Choom Gang” President Obama, illegal and legal drug use has accelerated. The role of billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros in the crisis that is taking tens of thousands of lives a year is examined by drug policy expert David Evans. Soros is behind the marijuana movement and even heroin injection centers, such as those proposed in Seattle. Evans looks at how the drug companies pushing opioids benefited from a law passed by Congress and signed by Obama and sparked an opioid epidemic.

Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers Working With ANTIFA Terrorist Group

the Gateway Pundit.

Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.

Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.

Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.

Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.

Bill Ayers was directly linked to today’s #BerkeleyProtests and has been actively involved in numerous actions against the Trump administration.

U.S. Gives Soros Groups Millions to Destabilize Macedonia’s Conservative Govt.

JUDICIAL WATCH

In June 2015, the Voice of America claimed that “Macedonia has become a major transit route for thousands of Middle Eastern and African refugees and migrants who cross over from Greece and then continue into Serbia.”

In 2016, the official German media outlet Deutsche Welle reported: “Macedonia has been the main transit point for almost 700,000 migrants heading from Greece to Western and Northern Europe on the so-called Balkan route since the beginning of 2015. Macedonian authorities are finalizing the construction of a new barbed-wire fence at the border with Greece.”

It is within this context that Judicial Watch states: “The U.S. government has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia by colluding with leftwing billionaire philanthropist George Soros, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, has worked behind the scenes with Soros’ Open Society Foundation to funnel large sums of American dollars for the cause, constituting an interference of the U.S. Ambassador in domestic political affairs in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.”

Soros, by his own admission, is opposed to European borders and has reportedly encouraged mass Muslim migration from the Middle East to Europe, ostensibly to destabilize the continent.

WHOA: Look who just bought 353,686 SHARES of Facebook stock

Free Republic

This may be something or it may be nothing, but this is DEFINITELY worth keeping an eye on. According to Investors Business Daily, George Soros just bought over 350,000 SHARES of Facebook stock within the last couple of months. Soros has had a history of buying influence, even to the point of Hillary taking Foreign Policy orders from him. However, now that he has NO SHOT of controlling Trump in any way, he may be trying to buy some social media influence to oppose Trump.

Family Security Matters

by SHER ZIEVE

We have entered a time in the history of the United States of America that augurs whether or not we will survive as a nation.  When We-the-People elected Donald J. Trump as our president, the globalist powers visibly headed by Luciferian leader and ObamaFriend George Soros began their malicious work to overturn the election and end the USA as it was founded.  Since 20 January 2017, the protests against our elections-and us–have increased as more anarchists have been and are continuing to be brought into the fray by these same New World Order globalists.  George Soros-just as he fomented and spurred on the Ferguson and other paid-for riots-is firmly behind the worldwide rioting and attempted overturn and destruction of the Trump administration…and the USA.  In order to affect that destruction, it is necessary for most, if not all, government institutions to stop following any and all US laws that would defeat the ultimate purpose of the New World Order; which is the complete dismantling and destruction of the United States as it now stands.  To wit, Obama and Soros met multiple times in our White House during Obama’s presidency.

Note:  From my perspective, it strongly appears Soros gained a great deal of assistance from Obama in the [their] fight against the USA and is still gaining it from all of the Obama hires and appointees still working in US government positions.

A vote for Clinton is a vote for the New World Order and an end to the United States of America

 

Worried about Trump? You should be worried about the left wing elites. It is their goal to establish a new and one world order, with themselves in control. Six years ago I warned you about George Soros. Soros is the self-loathing Jew who said his happiest days were spent with his father ratting out other Jews to the Nazis. Soros also has let everyone know how he feels about the US:

“The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.” 

That means the US must be taken down, and who better to do it than barack obama and hillary clinton?
