George Soros Wastes Millions Backing Losing Candidates In California DA Races

George Soros-backed candidates for district attorney in Sacramento, San Diego and Alameda counties lost to their conservative opponents in midterm elections on Tuesday, handing the "Open Society" billionaire a handful of embarrassing defeats in the most progressive state in the US.

Soros and several other like-minded donors - the American Civil Liberties Union, for example - poured millions into four DA races across California in hopes of electing reform-minded DAs. Instead, the judges running against Soros's candidates won by comfortable margins.

Conservative Sacramento incumbent Anne Marie Schubert won with 64% of the vote.

Incumbent Republican Summer Stephan received 64% of the vote in San Diego.

And Alameda County incumbent District Attorney Nancy O’Malley also won her race with 60% of the vote.

In each case, Soros's team had thought the incumbents were vulnerable to a challenge given the supposed anti-Republican backlash caused by Trump.

Another Soros-backed candidate, Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton, won, but may face a runoff in the November general election if she fails to win more than 50% of the votes in a recount that is ongoing, according to the Daily Caller

Since 2014, Soros has spent more than $2.7 million in DA races in California alone, helping more liberal candidates catch up with their conservative counterparts. And since 2014, he has spent some $16 million in 17 races in other states, with his candidates winning 13 of them.

The losses in this cycle were so bracing, that Michael Smolens, a columnist with the San Diego Tribune, questioned whether "these are mere speed bumps or is the political pendulum swinging against Soros and his progressive coalition?"

Was "Forward Together" and "Stop Trump" part of the losers strategy?

Yep....

Civil Rights Attorney Pamela Price has spent her entire life fighting for justice for everyday people. 

Pamela survived the American foster care and juvenile justice systems to graduate from Yale College and U.C. Berkeley School of Law. She has spent her entire legal career (enriching herself) fighting for justice on behalf of women, low-income people, and communities of color (what about white men? No justice for them?)

Pamela Price "On the Issues":

1. End Mass Incarceration
2. Stop Criminalizing Our Youth
3. Eliminate Use of the Death Penalty
4. Protect Immigrant Communities
5. Hold Police Accountable
6. Reduce Gun Violence
7. End Illegal Stop and Frisk Practices
8. Promote Transparency and Reform
9. Implement Smart Public Safety Measures
10. Protect and Free the Innocent

 

You would think, in California, "standing" for those 10 things would put you in the Governors chair...yet she lost big time...and these are the same "10 points" the Democrats are taking nationwide...lol...fools.

Since SOROS is a FAKE name anyway, why can't we start calling it by his devil-given name:  Dr. Evil.  Just look at the psycho evil in its eyes. 

"Tonight on Channel 9 news, Dr. Evil puts $2 million behind a small town candidate but loses as some old lady hangs around polling station with a cross on her necklace.  More on this breaking news story at 11 on channel 9."

Jesus is Lord.

Something happened late 2012. God intervened. We know that.

3.5 years later, the Bible stated changing. CERN is the key to the bottomless pit. It started operations Sep 23 in 2015. Something came out of it. 6 months later the Bible changes became apparent (research: Mandela Effect Bible Changes), that was in 2nd quarter of 2016.

Old/New testament are the 2 witnesses. A testament is the testimony of a witness. The two witnesses were killed by the beast coming out of the pit. Proof: No longer does the lion lay down with the lamb, but now the wolf is also dwelling with the lamb.

Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

There are signs that rapture might happen in 2019. The dead will resurrect and the body of Christ will be raptured.

Rev 11:11-12 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither.

All who denied Jesus can thereafter worship Satan in the 3rd temple in Jerusalem.

Soros, neither socialist nor progressive, in reality just a manipulator who does this stuff for two reasons, one of course his bank balance, plotting and scheming to make changes in society he will profit by, regardless of the consequences ie identity politics a tool to keep people distracted from real socio-economic policies, to keep the sheep arguing of the colour of their wool, whilst it is shorn from their back.

The second reason for kicks, to feed ego, to basically kick the ant hill for fun, psychopathic fun, to see what will happen and how powerful his ego has become, no goal, except creating chaos and conflict as a measure of power to feed the ego.

Do you know how many socialist multi-millionaires there are in reality, ZERO, sure there might be some that call themselves socialists but they are simply liars, using it as a scam (you simply can not be really rich and a socialists at the same time, unless your currency has been horrendously devalued or more realistically you are simply lying about either being rich or being a socialist).

Soros made his money manipulating countries currency at the direct expense of all of the citizens of the countries he targeted, that does not make him a socialist, it makes him a cunt.

Not funny.

Do you know he gets his grubs on US taxpayer $$$ through ill gotten means?

In some ways, we SUBSIDIZE his projects.

He should be arrested, all funds - including those he buried in non-profits -clawed back, then tried and convicted.

 And his ugly kids too.

Exactly what the Rothschild's do, you back every horse in the race, one of those horses should win, and that owner is in debt to you. When is a Debt not a Debt, when it's a Favor.

It doesn't matter who wins, because you will always get 100x or 1000x more back in favors than the amount you put in. People like Soros, Rothschild's money means absolutely nothing to them, they have something much more valuable, your Soul.
