Why would a very wealthy person who was raised first under Nazism and then under Communism wish to work in opposition to democracy and in favor of authoritarianism? Good question. The answer is pegged to Hungarian-born George Soros.

His support for leftist and “progressive” causes and organizations is epic. He began his recent political activity in 2004 in an effort to defeat the re-election bid of President George W. Bush. However, as early as 1979 Soros advanced hard-left political and social agendas world-wide. These foreign agendas turn out to be far more devastating than his support for leftist candidates and causes in the US.

It is one thing for Soros to support radical leftist organizations within the US using his own money. He certainly has the right to his own political opinions and the right to support his opinions with his own money. It is quite another matter for him to support extreme left-leaning organizations, or any organization, with US taxpayer dollars. What is more onerous is that the support is facilitated by the US Department of State and USAID officials. With a net worth of over $25 billion as estimated by Forbes Magazine in 2017, Soros should not be using taxpayer dollars to fund his ventures especially when his interests are contrary to US foreign policy.

Enter Judicial Watch (JW), one of the premiere public service law firms in the nation (501c3). JW has filed four Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the US State Department and USAID. JW is seeking the facts concerning allegations that George Soros’ radical groups in Colombia, Romania, Macedonia, and Albania are being funded by US taxpayers.

It works like this. Evidence indicates collusion between officials from the Obama State Department who are still in position (Deep State) in the Trump administration and George Soros to destabilize democratic governments. JW has already forced some documents from the State Department that substantiate this collusion in Albania and Romania. There are further allegations of collusion between State Department officials and Soros to move US taxpayers dollars through Soros’ organizations to undermine democratically elected conservative governments by supporting far-left groups.

The Soros effort is a violation of international law as well as a misappropriation of federal funds. The United States is a signatory to the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations which expressly forbids diplomatic personnel of participating nations from interfering in the political affairs of the host nation.

JW received documents from high level sources in Macedonia and the US that the Obama-appointed US Ambassador to Macedonia (still serving), Jess L. Baily, is involved in the very type of activity prohibited by the Vienna Convention. Specifically, “Ambassador Baily colluded with George Soros by working behind the scenes with Soros’ Open Society Foundations to funnel nearly $5 million in American taxpayer dollars from USAID in Macedonia to destabilize the conservative government there….Judicial Watch has also reported on the dozens of leftwing organizations in Macedonia funded by Soros with ‘pass-through’ money received from the American government.”

Additional JW investigations have indicated similar inappropriate funding activity in Colombia and Romania. Furthermore, in a letter signed by six US Senators to then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, various countries’ leaders “…have made similar claims of US diplomats and Soros-backed organizations pushing for certain outcomes in their country.”

Most recently JW has uncovered evidence how groups with the Open Society Foundations have organized, supported, and promote the so-called “migrant caravans” moving through Central America and Mexico to the US border. The intent, of course, is to overwhelm the US immigration system and defeat President Trump’s effort to secure the border.

As an aside, and for those interested in delving into the depth and breadth of Soros’ influence, look at DiscovertheNetworks.org website. It offers a detailed view of the far-flung operation of his Open Society Foundations to which he parlayed $18 billion of his personal wealth and which now funds subsidiary organizations which, in turn, dispense the transferred wealth.
