On The Bizarre Media Blackout Of Hacked George Soros Documents

Scandal: Leaked documents released a few days ago provide juicy insider details of how a fabulously rich businessman has been using his money to influence elections in Europe, underwrite an extremist group, target U.S. citizens who disagreed with him, dictate foreign policy, and try to sway a Supreme Court ruling, among other things. Pretty compelling stuff, right?

Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros. In this case, the mainstream press couldn't care less.

On Saturday, a group called DC Leaks posted more than 2,500 documents going back to 2008 that it pilfered from Soros' Open Society Foundations' servers. Since then, the mainstream media have shown zero interest in this gold mine of information.

We couldn't find a single story on the New York Times, CNN, Washington Post, CBS News or other major news sites that even noted the existence of these leaked documents, let alone reported on what's in them.

Indeed, the only news organization that appears to be diligently sifting through all the documents is the conservative Daily Caller, which as a result has filed a series of eye-opening reports.

So what could possibly explain the mainstream media's disinterest?

Is the problem that the material is too boring or inconsequential? Hardly.

As we noted in this space on Monday, the leaked documents show how Soros' far-flung international organizations attempted to manipulate Europe's 2014 elections. The "List of European Elections 2014 Projects" details over 90 Soros efforts he had under way that year.

The documents reveal that Soros has poured nearly $4 million into anti-Israel groups, with a goal of "challenging Israel's racist and anti-democratic policies."

Here at home, they show that Soros proposed paying the Center for American Politics $200,000 to conduct a smear campaign against conservative activists.

More recently, an October 2015 document came to light showing that Soros' Open Society U.S. Programs had donated $650,000 to "invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement." Since then, several BLM protests have turned violent.

That same document details how this group successfully used its "extensive networks" to pressure the Obama administration into increasing the number of refugees it would take to 100,000, despite concerns that Islamic terrorists could use the refugee program to infiltrate the U.S.

A separate memo details how Soros tried to use his clout to sway Supreme Court justices into approving President Obama's unilateral effort to rewrite immigration law. "Grantees are seeking to influence the Justices (primarily via a sophisticated amicus briefs and media strategy) in hopes of securing a favorable ruling in U.S. v Texas," the memo, dug up by the Daily Caller, states.

Anyone with this much power and influence demands close media scrutiny. Particularly when he has extremely close ties to the would-be next president of the United States.

This year alone, Soros has given $7 million to the Clinton-supporting Priorities USA super-PAC, and a total of $25 million to support Democrats and their causes, according to Politico.

And when Soros speaks, Clinton listens. A separate email released by WikiLeaks shows Soros giving what read like step-by-step instructions to then-Secretary of State Clinton on how to deal with unrest in Albania in early 2011, including a list of people who should be considered as candidates to become an official mediator sent to that country. Days later, the EU dispatched one of the people on Soros' list.

Thomas Lifson, writing in the American Thinker blog, said "Soros got the U.S. and other accomplices to intervene in the internal affairs of a sovereign state…. How is this not huge news?"

How, indeed.

If Soros were a rock-ribbed conservative who supported Republican candidates and causes, you can bet that a swarm of reporters would right now be lustily tearing into these documents determined to expose any and every shred of evidence of influence peddling and misdeeds.

But because Soros is a hard-core leftist, he apparently gets a pass. Shameful.

It's almost as if Soros has some weird influence on the "Free Press". Now that couldn't be the case could it. Die already you old bastard.

Not anymore.

The Koch brothers have been given a temporary pardon by the progs since they are not supporting Trump.

(With apologies to Christopher McQuarrie; The Usual Suspects )

Zucker: Who is George Soros? He is supposed to be a Hungarian Jew turned Nazi. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Hitlery tell it, anybody could have worked for Soros. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.

Hannity: Do you believe in him, Zucker?

Zucker: Blitzer always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is György Schwartz.

Soros looks just like the old lady from "Throw Mama from the Train" in that thumbnail.

Soros has bought and paid for the media. If I were him, I would feel terribly cheated if the press DID report negatively on him.

I case we just haven't been paying attention, the whole system has been compromised. An all-powerful government, empowered to SERVE the people has now taken control of everything. They are the masters and we the serfs.

I am convinced that their is no TRUTH as proclaimed by anyone in media or politics as they ALL serve a master for which the truth is poison. We are left to simply speculate as to what the truth is as proof will never be presented, and what little is, is instantly attacked and denigrated to the point that only a fool would open their mouth publicly knowing full well that they will be destroyed.

Since there is no such thing as "leaks"

Consider the set up

Cant get armed americans to start shooting?

Have an outrageous election that installs hillary in a way that all the prison planet ect armed "patriots" know was fake, then run false flag attacks blamed on those patriot types, then install the ever tightening "iron grip" on the last population that imagines they have a right to a say in govt actions.

The Kochs have had enough.Alinsky 101 had its effect on them.For 18 months the Chicago mob lied about,smeared,and slandered this family on a daily basis culminating in then senate majority leader repeatedly vilifiying them on camera for weeks.All lies.One of the most outrageous propaganda exercises I've seen this side of the Third Reich.The Kochs have been re-educated.They're now quietly campaigning for the 'strange new respect'award...

Panopticon 131's picture

The Kochs' high profile entry into Global Elitedom began with the father Fred CHASE Koch co-opting the John Birch Society.  Fred being also a close personal contact and business partner with Stalin.   Perhaps that explains why congressman Larry Mcdonald, JBS president and outspoken whistleblower on elite treason in the US govt, lost his life when his plane went down after being targeted by the Soviet air force. 

How is it the lame stream media narrative labeled the Koch brothers as "neocon fossil fuel polluters and climate deniers" and yet we have them working for the Green Gestapo movement?  Years ago Charles Koch was a board member of the leftwing environmentalist Earthwatch Institute and a board member of The Aspen Institute headed at one point by UN Climate Nazi Maurice Strong.  His two brothers also dabbling in left wing causes and donating to left wing politicos on the same band wagon. 

Recently, the Kochs funded a major "get out the Hispanic vote" program to help Hillary.  

The elites always fund and support both sides, the Kochs are no different.

True, both Soros and the Kochs both are on the same Globalist team.

There are those who are primarily pursuing a political agenda, and profitting along the way, and then there are those who only seek to profit from whatever politcal agenda best provides it. The politcal agenda IS progressivism and there will always be those components of that ideology that supposed conservatives can profit from.

Regardless, progressivism is our direction and conservatism simply is an impediment to that "progress" that can slow it but never stop it. Business, like most people, simply seeks short term gains and will attempt to game whatever system it before them. "Principles" are mostly held by individuals who generally are in the minority, and as these principles erode, it becomes increasingly expensive to retain them. Trump has some good principles, but he is a business man and he will compromise to pursue his larger goals. It's a crap shoot if he will be good or bad, but it is no bet at all as to Hillary's prognosis. The Koch's will stand for principle to a point, but speaking as a very small businessman, I can tell you it is impossible to hold your principles when you have employees and family depending on you. Not many (thankfully) have the "principles" to strap a vest bomb on their children to prove a point. This is effectively what is expected of business people however. They are expected to not only suicide themselves for principle, but to take their employees with them.

Panopticon 131's picture

It's techno neofeudal collectivism with strong Marxist overtones disguised as progressivism.   Overseen by the usual suspects, of course, and wrapped with seductive "smart" technologies. 

It's the Highway to Hell no matter what label is slapped on it.   

But don't look here at the invisible gulag being built, watch the Kabuki Koch vs. Soros theater, even better the Clinton Crime Family vs. the Bush Crime Family.

Keep leaking boys! The only way to get the spotlight on their backstage dealings is to put it right in front of everyone's face.

 

I hope there is more of this stuff! Especially about Ukraine - it shouldn't be hard to find materials about his Orange Revolution

Progressives love (((Soros))) therefore the (((media))) shields his treason.

nibiru's picture

And the only way to defend against this is to:

a) create our own media based on the critical approach to facts

b) keep uncovering truth through leaks/hacks/whatever gets the raw flesh out 

c) create a thick skin to defend against becoming numb and dumb MSM consumers.

Syrin's picture

That's only partially true.   Until we take back academia and Holywood, we will be fighting against constant liberla state indoctrination.

Look what this academia is producing - those people won't have normal stable jobs (most of those SJW).

Hollywood - this is a matter of money, true.

I try to explain the same thing to Germans, where many *LITERALLY* don't trust the news unless it comes FROM the government.  

Its amazing, actually. 

In my opinion, its not the lies the media outright publishes/transmits which is the most egregious, but what they fail to talk about, or what they fail to talk about in comparison to something else. 

Breaking news, potential POTUS has huge ulcers on her tongue, cannot walk up stairs, has a catheter, has seizures, but in more important news, US Olympian lied about getting robbed.

90% of the time spent on idiot Olympian.

10% of the time spent on "debunking" anyone who says people having seizures, using a catheter and large ulcers is sick.

I know the feeling too well.

The German MSM are hopelessly liberal and consistently attack any right leaning political opinion.  ARD/ZDF and their satellite operations (regional radio, TV stations, internet sites) are almost all intellectually formed from the same mold.  Worst of all, almost the entire population is forced by law to pay for this mafia operation, and it doesn´t matter if you watch or listen to them or not.  Needless to say, Trump gets hammered all the time, yet Clinton´s crimes are all but looked over.  The brainwashing is stupendous.

"IDIOCRACY" at its Finest moment

i have always been a rebel.  i have always felt uncomfortable towing the party line.  i feel as though i can see through the bullshit so much easier than almost every one of my siblings, peers and associates.

 

this could be construed as a form of insanity or it could be seen as deep insight.  i, of course, favor the latter definintion.  i have long stopped tying my notion of what is the most accurate description of reality with how someone else reacts to it.  many of those with other reactions are not "lamebrains".  they are wired differently though. 

 

their normalcy bias and / or inability to harmonize their conclusions and basic world views with basic moral or rational precepts presents a huge stumbling block to forming solid and rational conclusions.

 

for most people, i don't even try anymore.  they would rather win an argument based on volume or ad hominum attacks than face the cumulative danger that ignorance presents.

 

the dodo bird is extinct because it could not see that the humans coming to kill and eat them presented a threat.

 

many people i know will be eaten, or at least killed, by malevolent humans who take advantage of their lack of alarm.

It was probably the reason why in 1973 Jim Rogers left Soros. I wish Jim would spill the beans on Soros, though. Unfortunately, most still look out for their own.
