Soros Agenda Is Being Funded With YOUR Tax Dollars: We’re joined by special guest, Tom Fitton, from Judicial Watch today as we talk about how George Soros is funding the leftist agenda around the world. Not only that, but did you know that he is doing this with your tax dollars?! We talk about the importance of being aware of what’s going on as well as what we can do about it.  It’s important that we give like the founding fathers did – our lives, fortunes, and sacred honor, to persevere our God-given, constitutional, liberty for future generations!

Later in the program, Tom Fitton will be with us from Judicial Watch. We’re going to be talking about some of the funding, some of the leftist causes around, not just the country, but the planet. David, Tim, sometimes it seems like they are just constantly everywhere – not just in America, but even in other countries. The left wing is having great victories in some of these countries where there’s a real battle whether to go down the road to socialism or adopt more of the American ideals of freedom and free enterprise.  

Grassroots Campaigning

David:

One of the things that allows groups to prevail is the ability to get their message out. And then the ability to organize grassroots efforts around their message and the ability to execute those grassroots movements. We know that in political campaigns. That’s a key to political campaigns. Rick, you and I have been in lots of battles and when someone says, “€œThis is a grassroots campaign we’re running.”€, what does that tell you? It says they”€™ve got no money.

Rick:

Yeah.

David:

That’s what every candidate is. Well, this is a grassroots campaign. Well, I’m glad it is, but you have to have some money to win. And that’s just the way it is. You might have less than the other guy, but you can’t win without some money because you have to get your message out there.

Rick:

That”€™s right.

David:

And I was with a guy who ran for U.S. Senate here in Texas this year and he says, “€œI’m going to be speaking to a group every night between now and the primary.”€, which is three months, “€œAnd I’m going to win it.”€ You”€™ve got 22 million people to get in three months and you’re talking to groups of 10, 15, and 20 people a night, and you think that’s going to get your message out. You might, at best, reach five to 7000 people out of a state of 22 million.

People are naive about that. It does take money and that’s what we tell candidates. If you’re going to run for office you better– for federal office, you better plan on spending 90 percent of your time in the first three months of the campaign doing nothing, but raising money. Because you have to be able to contradict what the other guys say about you. If someone calls you whatever you have to be able respond to that. Because 95 percent of people who are going to vote for you don’t know one way or the other and they’ll just listen to what they hear from the candidates in the way of media.

Campaigns in Other Nations

David:

So, we know that that’s significant. It’s the same way overseas. And in other nations when they have campaigns that work – whether it’s a social justice campaign, or change the direction of government campaign, or get this particular guy elected campaign. It takes money, it takes a network to be able to execute the grassroots plan, and it takes grassroots to be able to execute that plan. So, all of that takes money because when you hire grassroots, and you hire consultants, and you make phone calls, and you put out literature, all that takes money.

So, it really helps if you can have a lot of money at your disposal. And if you need a lot of money at your disposal for something on the left side you just need to go to George Soros. This is where so much money is available. As a matter of fact, when John Kerry ran against George Bush, George Soros put 27 million dollars into John Kerry’s campaign. When Hillary ran against Trump he put 25 million into her campaign. You know how much messaging you can do with 25 or 27 million dollars? How many TV stations you can buy, and ads, and newspapers?

Well, you take that to a foreign nation, a nation like Poland, oh my gosh. Twenty five million dollars you can own every newspaper in Poland essentially.

So, this is the kind of thing where when you have money you’re much more effective at getting your message out and changing the narrative. And George Soros is a guy who does that.

Tim:

Let me throw out, by the way, that there was a really interesting chart I saw very recently sent to us by a former congressman. And it was tracking the GDP of America and specifically by state. And if you look at different states, for example, and compare– So, what does Texas make? The Texas GDP based on another nation. And so this map is from 2016, it was from those rates in 2016. But if you look at other nations Texas is an incredibly successful state when it comes to economics, when it comes to GDP. The entire nation of Canada produces what Texas produces. The map is really cool. It goes through all these different states and shows what nation it would take to essentially match that state’s GDP.

What Does the GDP of Poland Match?

Tim:

Well, you mentioned Poland for example. So, Poland, if you look at the GDP of Poland, the GDP of Poland matches the GDP of Rhode Island. Now, if you’re talking about putting 20 something million dollars into an election, that doesn’t seem like a big deal necessarily here in the U.S. But if you take millions of dollars–

For example, if you were running a race in Rhode Island and you had a couple million dollars in a race in Rhode Island, well, all of a sudden, yeah, you’re going to get pretty heavy saturation with your message with whatever kind of mail outs you have. You can saturate Rhode Island pretty well with a couple million dollars. Well, if he’s spending a couple million dollars not just in the U.S., right, but if he’s influencing things around the nation, which we know he is, that money goes a lot further in other nations sometimes than we realize. Because we don’t recognize the GDP of other nations, how limited it is, compared to how blessed financially we are here in America.

David:

When you say, “€œGeorge Soros”€, he not only has money, he’s willing to spend it. He’s worth 25 billion dollars – with a “€œB”€ – 25 billion dollars. So, of that 25 billion, Soros has just taken 18 billion, earmarked it, moved it over into an organization that has his views on societal transformation. It”€™s got to be all about global warming, and climate change. He wants open borders, he wants open immigration, he wants to stop all the prosecution of illegals, he wants to stop prosecution of crime in general, drug crimes need to be– prostitution, whatever it is. He wants his stuff changed. And he’s been willing to do this for a number of years.

I mentioned all the money he put in even two presidential races. He had what was called the Secretary of State Project in which he put– and, Rick, Tim, we know Secretary of State is a down ballot race. Most of us right now cannot name the Secretary of State of the state in which we live. Just hands down, you can’t do it.

A Very Powerful Position

David:

But Soros recognized it’s a very powerful position. And so he put money into electing secretaries of state. And then when recall elections come up, or when contested elections come up, the person who’s counting the ballots is now his guy. So, when Norm Coleman, for example, ran for U.S. Senate for reelection in Minnesota it was really close between he and Al Franken. And they recounted, and recounted, and recounted, and recounted, and when Al Franken finally got ahead, then the secretary of state said, That’s it. We’re done counting. Franken wins.”€ Even though Coleman had won all the previous recounts, they just kept recounting until Franken won.

You had the same thing when Dino Rossi was running for governor in Washington. The secretary of state was a Soros guy who had been elected and they count, and they count, and they count, and, “€œOh, sorry, we finally can determine that the Republican, lost the progressive Democrat wins.”€ And so that’s a significant place. He’s done the same thing with attorney generals. Guess what his new project is right now?

Rick:

So, he’s done Secretary of State, he”€™s done attorney generals–

David:

His new project is– any guess?

Rick:

Where would you go next? If that’s been your battle plan so far…

David:

What would be really significant to change the direction of culture. What position would it be?

Rick:

Director of education if they have it–

David:

Yeah.

What Position is Soros After Next?

Rick:

I don’t know.

David:

Well, Rick, let me just throw out what it is – local, local, local, county district attorney’s.

Rick:

Ah.

David:

Now, just think about your county, Rick. What do you think a district attorney race in your county would be? How much would it cost?

Rick:

Oh–

David:

It”€™s Definitely down ballot. We’re not talking to statewide, we”€™re talking county.

Rick:

Yeah, five thousand maybe. 10,000 maybe. We’re one of the– I guess we’re about number 20th largest county in the States. We’re a fairly good sized county, so yeah, it’s about 5,000. You could win one at five to ten thousand if you campaign hard. And I guess for him, local DA, man, that can, that’s going to deal with all those immigration issues–

David:

That”€™s right.

Rick:

Man, yeah, I can see why that would be very valuable to him.

David:

Yeah, you”€™re going to *, you’re not going to prosecute, you’re not going to bring charges. You’re going to have a very liberal progressive agenda–

Rick:

Drug issues.

David:

Now, grab this – so far, in seven local DA races, he has spent three million dollars in seven local races. That’s how much he wants these positions. So, Soros is trying to change the direction the nation. No question.

Rick:

Okay, quick break, guys. We’ll be right back. You’re listening to WallBuilders Live.

Moment From American History

This is Tim Barton from WallBuilders with another moment from American history.

The Reverend James Caldwell was a famous minister during the American War for Independence. His sermons taught liberty and God’s opposition to tyranny.

The British hated him and tried to kill him. So, for his own protection he would actually take loaded pistols with him into the pulpit and lay them beside his Bible as he preached. In the 1780 Battle of Springfield, the Americans ran out of wadding for their guns which was like having no ammunition.

Pastor Caldwell ran inside a nearby church and returned with an armload of Watt Hymnals, the pages of which would provide the much needed wadding. He took this great Bible based hymnal, raised in the air, and shouted to the troops,”€Now put to watts into them, boys!”€  This pastor’s ingenuity saved the day for the Americans.

For more information or Pastor James Caldwell and other Colonial Patriots go to WallBuilders.com

Rick:

Welcome back. Thanks for staying with us here on WallBuilders Live. Topic today is the influence of the political realm and some of these more down ballot races people typically don’t pay attention to. And how the left has been able to win a lot of victories there in large part due to the Soros funding that’s taking place.

David, Tim, so it”€™s not just Secretary of State, or attorney general, some of the things that have somewhat been– people have seen in conservative media that Soros has been focused on that. But today we’re going to learn he’s actually been focused in other countries as well.

Soros Focused in Other Countries as Well

Tim:

That is one of the things that I alluded to in the first segment. It’s something that we’ve seen several news articles recently where he has been very involved in trying to change the culture in other nations. Actually, some nations have had a little kickback against it because they’re saying, Wait a second, we don’t want this guy coming over, an outsider, coming and telling us how we have to run our nation.”€

And so he hasn’t been largely well-received and a lot of European nations, but he has changed so much of the European structure and most Europeans have no idea. Certainly, Americans have no idea

David:

He has a long track of doing this. He’s known as the guy who broke the Bank of England. Because he uses his economic clout to be able to create some bad situations and capitalize on bad situations. He also was convicted in French courts of insider trading and the European Court upheld his conviction on insider trading. So, he uses his money for great effect.

We saw recently in Hungary, and Hungary is a very God centered, very traditional value kind of biblical, Judeo Christian nation. He’s moving in organizations to affect their elections, to try to change the direction of the country, he wants open immigration, he wants open borders, he wants a globalist kind of a thing. And a lot of nations don’t want that.

So, Hungary actually has a stop Soros law that they’re looking at passing in just a few days here. We’ve been talking to people hungry. And so he’s really weighing in in other nations trying to change globally what he’s already spending so much money on in American. And again, he’s got 18 billion that he has allocated to doing this kind of global transformation. So, it really is a big thing.

Tom Fitton, who is with Judicial Watch, has recently uncovered that actually the, what we call the deep state in the government, the holdovers from previous administrations who are very liberal, are actually working with Soros and are using government money to help affect these elections in other countries. Unbelievable stuff that Tom”€™s found through Judicial Watch.

Rick:

So, that means our tax dollars, our dollars, we’re actually contributing to these leftist activities in other countries. Stay with us, folks. Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch will be with us on WallBuilders Live.

Share a veteran’s story

We Want To Hear Your Vet Story

Rick:

Hey friends! If you have been listening to WallBuilders Live for very long at all, you know how much we respect our veterans and how appreciative we are of the sacrifice they make to make our freedoms possible. One of the ways that we love to honor those veterans is to tell their stories here on WallBuilders Live.  Once in awhile, we get an opportunity to interview veterans that have served on those front lines that have made incredible sacrifices have amazing stories that we want to share with the American people.

One of the very special things we get to do is interview World War II veterans. You’ve heard those interviews here on WallBuilders Live, from folks that were in the Band of Brothers, to folks like Edgar Harrell that survived the Indianapolis to so many other great stories you heard on WallBuilders Live.

You have friends and family that also served.  If you have World War II veterans in your family that you would like to have their story shared here on WallBuilders Live, please e-mail us at [email protected]  Give us a brief summary of the story and we’ll set up an interview. Thanks so much for sharing here on WallBuilders Live!

Rick:

Welcome back. Thanks for staying with us here on WallBuilders Live. Tom Fitton is with us, president of Judicial Watch. They’ve been doing this for 20, wow, Tom, now it’s 20 what, five years, four years, you guys have been at this?

Tom Fitton:

Oh, I don’t want to say, it”€™s been too long.

Rick:

All of that to say you’ve seen a lot of corruption.

Tom Fitton:

That’s right.

Rick:

Not just in Washington D.C., but around the world.

Tom Fitton:

Yeah, there”€™s a rule of law crisis here in Washington D.C.. And we’re doing our best to address it with the tools that we have available to us under our great legal system, the best in the world here.

Set This Up For Our Listeners

Rick:

Well, the way you guys expose things and get it out to the American public is greatly appreciated. The website – JudicialWatch.org. There’s a lot of different topics we could cover with you today, but specifically wanted to dive into– you guys have really been researching how we’ve taken government dollars, taxpayer dollars, to help George Soros fund his leftist agenda. Not just here in America, but around the world.

You’ve covered several countries recently Guatemala, Macedonia, Albania, Romania, Colombia, all these places where we’re taking our money and funding his leftist agenda. First of all, how did you guys track these things down? And and I guess, set this up for our listeners in terms of why we should even care.

Tom Fitton:

Well, I think most Americans would object, both left and right, to U.S. government tax dollars going to fund George Soros”€™ Open Society Foundations. He’s a billionaire, those groups don’t need any money from the government in order to operate, but we’re still providing money to them. And they have an agenda which is at odds with many Americans here in the United States. This transnational progressive agenda which is fundamentally anti-American in many respects outside of the United States. And which supports policies that, as I point out, many Americans would object to. This kind of a socialist approach to policy.

The government of Albania, Macedonia, Romania, even in Guatemala and Colombia, are all under assault by Soros front groups working in concert with deep staters in the State Department and they’re using our tax dollars to do it.

In the case of Albania, we uncovered that 9 million dollars in taxpayer funds went to a Soros operation as part of a campaign to bring the judiciary under the thumb of the socialist authoritarian government there. It’s a real problem. And if you don’t like what Soros is doing here at home you should know they’re being indirectly helped to do that by allowing them to save resources abroad and direct them here at home because all money is fungible.

The United Nations Working With Soros

Rick:

It looked like from what I saw on your reports you’ve got, in some cases, some of course supporting trying to get the judiciary under the thumb of a bad government. But then in Guatemala he”€™s trying to undermine a government that actually has been supportive of the United States at least in some of the votes at the U.N..

Tom Fitton:

Yeah, you’ve got the United Nations working in concert with the Soros operation. You’ve got State Department officials including holdover ambassadors from Obama working. We’ve got this new report on Guatemala available on our internet site at JudicialWatch.org. It goes into great detail * fairly for you. But it’s a major issue.

I know President Trump has been talking about Bezos, the head of Amazon. I think the White House and the administration should be talking more about Soros since his operations have more direct government funding than anything Amazon does.

Rick:

Now, some of our listeners might say, “€œOkay, well look, maybe that happened under the Obama administration, but is it still happening? Are the bureaucrats still able to pull this off in a Trump administration?”€

Tom Fitton:

Well, we’re still figuring out the funding, but the partnerships are still happening in these various countries. Because these are places that administrations often ignore, Republican administrations especially. But the left doesn’t ignore it and they use the bureaucracies to affect their will. So, this is still an issue even under the Trump administration.

What”€™s the Action Item?

Rick:

What’s the action item for our listeners? What can they do to help shed more light on this? Obviously, even just in a Paul Revere style of sharing the news, and warning, and sharing your reports on Facebook, Twitter, and whatnot, getting the word out there. But then in terms of leaning on their congressmen or others to investigate these things, what can they do?

Tom Fitton:

Well, there are some congressmen who are interested in this, so it’s not like it’s going to be news to some of the conservative members. But you should let your members of Congress know about your concerns, you can let the White House know about your concerns. And obviously you should, as you point out, spread the word about what Judicial Watch has uncovered and support our work. Because frankly, no one else is doing this sort of direct action in terms of getting access to information under the * by going to federal court to sue for records like Judicial Watch does.

Rick:

Alright, JudicialWatch.org is the place to do that. You can also get on the e-mail list there and stay informed with the weekly reports from Judicial Watch. Tom Fitton, appreciate you coming on. Let”€™s do it again soon.

Tom Fitton:

You’re welcome. Thanks for having me.

Rick:

Stay with us, folks. We’ll be right back with David and Tim Barton.

Leadership Training Program

Rick:

Hey, friends! We’ve got a great program to share with you today. It”€™s the WallBuilders Leadership Training Program and it’s an opportunity for 18 to 25 year olds to come spend two weeks diving into the original documents we’re always talking about here on WallBuilders Live.

Tim, you’ve already been doing this a couple of summers and seen the results of young people coming to this program. We’re going to see more of them coming this year.

Tim:

Yeah, Rick, it”€™s something that”€™s been cool to see the transformation with young people coming in. The emphasis, for us, largely is a pursuit of truth. We have a culture that doesn’t know what truth is. We don’t know what biblical truth is, or constitutional truth, or the American heritage that we have. And so we really dive into original documents and say, “€œWell, what did they actually write? What did they actually do? Not just what did somebody say, what is actually true, and the truth is what’s transformational.

David:

Yeah, guys. This really is a remarkable opportunity. And for those who want to spend time with us and spend time in the original documents, this is a great program. So, if you’re from 18 to 25, or you know someone who’s 18 to 25, send them to sign up for one of our three sessions this summer at WallBuilders.com/leadershiptraining.

Rick:

We”€™re back on WallBuilders Live. Thanks for staying with us today. Thanks to Tom Fitton for joining us from Judicial Watch as well. David, Tim, exactly what you were talking about in the first part of the program. He’s confirming that, yeah, it’s an international effort, but it affects us here in America and uses our tax dollars to do it.

David:

If you look at particularly the countries that Soros is targeting right now, whether you look at Colombia, or Guatemala. Whether you look at Hungary, or Poland, or Czechoslovakia, all of these countries. It’s interesting they’re all the most conservative, most Judeo Christian, and most liberty leaning countries in all these areas.

For example, Colombia has been a socialistic nation for a number of years and they are trying to become a free nation, trying to throw off socialism. So, he’s weighing in there in Colombia.

Lessons Learned

David:

You have Poland, you have Hungary, who have said, “€œWe don’t want open immigration anymore.”€ The Pols saw this about 10 years ago when they had in the Chechen war, which was muslim. About 80,000 Chechen immigrants moved into Poland. And Poland who was known for one of the lowest crime rates in all of Europe and these Chechen communities had high crime rates. They said, “€œThis is a lesson we’ve learned. We’ve opened our door to let people in without caring about character or beliefs.”€ And so they have shut the door on muslim immigrants right now and they’re one of the few nations in Europe that have not had a terrorist attack.

But they’re not anti-immigrant. In the last two years you’ve had Poland take in 1.3 million Ukrainian immigrants out of the Civil War between Russia and Ukraine. But the Ukrainian immigrants are coming in wanting to contribute. So, what you have in Poland now is higher wages than they”€™ve ever had, higher employment rate than they’ve ever had. So, they’re not anti immigration, they just don’t want open borders.

And that’s exactly what Hungary is doing, that’s what Czechoslovakia is doing, that’s what other nations are doing, being judicious with their borders, and that’s not what Soros wants.

So, you finding him weigh in in these other nations and it really is significant that when you look at the nations he’s targeting they’re the nations that are moving toward biblical values or liberty.

Rick:

Yeah, I don’t think that’s by accident, David. He knows what he’s doing. And I would say, hey, listeners, George Soros is putting his money, and our money unfortunately, where his values are. This is stuff he believes in. So, he’s taking his fortune that he’s made and he’s fighting for what he believes in. I don’t agree with anything the guys fighting for. But I’ve got to respect the fact that he’s willing to put his money where his values are.

Putting Money Where Your Values Are

Rick:

David, Tim, why don’t we do more of that? Think of it, we”€™ve got Christian billionaires, we”€™ve got Christians that even if you’re not a billionaire if you can give 10 bucks here and 20 bucks there if we would all do that we could match the left. Usually we’re outspent by the left, it shouldn’t be that way, doesn’t have to be that way.

David:

Well, they have a lot of really big major donors. And for whatever reason a lot of guys that have money on our side, some are willing to spend it, but not at the same level he does. I know of no one on the conservative side who’s allocated 18 billion dollars even though there are a number of conservative billionaires.

He’s willing to put the money in. I’ve seen recordings of him saying, “€œI’m willing to go to my grave broke if I can change the world with my money.”€ He’s willing to put it behind his convictions. And by the way, he is an open atheist, he is opposed to those values, but he believes that he is, as in several interviews he said, “€œI believe I am God.”€ I have the ability to change the world. I’m going to do it.

Rick:

Wow.

David:

So, that commitment is there and he’s committed to that. We need to be committed. But you know what? Even if we don’t have billionaires we can put 10, 15, 20, 50– if millions of Americans just put a little bit of bucks into this stuff we could change races in a very easy thing. So, this is significant.

By the way, Tom pointed out that you need to call your congressman. Let them know what’s happening with Soros and State Department funding etc.. And a lot of the conservative congressmen do know. But this is still an emerging thing that is coming out as new information comes forth. And we just need to do everything we can to figure that if Soros is for it it”€™s probably a really bad deal for what traditional, constitutional loving, God fearing, kind of folks would say. That’s not what we want. He will have values opposite to what we believe.

Giving Like the Founding Fathers

Rick:

Echoing what you said about 10, 15 dollars, all of us can give. We talk a lot about lives, fortunes, sacred honor – the founders gave all of that and they gave everything they had to launch the nation. We need to give our life – that’s our time to study. Even just listening to the program today and learning these things and then sharing that with your friends and family.

Fortunes – that’s donating to good candidates out there and good causes. You can come alongside us here on the radio program and help spread the word through the radio program. Go to WallBuilders.com to be a part of the donors that make this listener supported program work.

And then sacred honor –  that’s the willingness to speak the truth, willing to stand up and speak truth. Sometimes even in a culture that doesn’t– or at least they act like they don’t want to hear it, but they’re honestly hungry for truth.

Soros Agenda Is Being Funded With YOUR Tax Dollars

Rick:

So, lives fortunes, and sacred honor. That’s what it takes. We can each do a little bit of each of those three in our own lives and we can match George Soros where he is if we all get involved and do our part. Thanks for listening today to WallBuilders Live.
