    Soros Funded Pro-Immigrant Group To Target Waco

    July 12, 2014 - 4:12 am

    An email alert was sent out this afternoon from the Detention Watch Network. They plan a protest event tomorrow morning at the Jack Harwell Detention Center in Waco, Tx. According to them, this facility is just not quite good enough for the detaining of immigrants due to issues such as a lack of a legal library there, no on site medical facility, etc. However, previous complaints they have made to ICE were not given any validation:

    “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is committed to providing all detainees in our custody with safe detention environments. The Jack Harwell Detention Center meets the applicable ICE detention standards and has successfully passed inspection reviews. Independent detention inspections are conducted by private contractors with extensive corrections experience to ensure quality assurance over the review process, consistency in the application of detention standards, and verification of corrective actions, if any. ICE is open to discussing any concerns with our partnering agencies regarding the detainees housed at their facilities.”

    Their headline suggests that this is just the beginning of a highly orchestrated national effort:

    Event is Part of Nationwide Actions to Stop the Immigrant Lock-up Quota and Immigrant Detention

    This well financed email campaign was sent out from someone at Fitzgibbon Media, a progressive <acronym title="Google Page Ranking">PR</acronym> firm. Seems costly for another “grassroots” movement, but this is no low budget group. Sponsored by Soros’ Tides Foundation and sharing the same floor at a Washington DC office building with Jim Wallis’ Sojourners and Fund for the Republic (a Lawrence Lessig/Mark McKinnon related effort to get their campaign finance reform back in place), this movement comes from the same place as all the rest.

    Members of the Detention Watch Network include the ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Ctr., Ella Baker Ctr. for Human Rights among others.

    According to this linked report, they also report their findings directly to the UN.

    Back in March, another story came out from Aaron Klein on the Detention Watch Group, describing the meeting between their illegal immigrant director, Catalina Nieto, her Code Pink delegation and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. She has been illegally employed here for many years. In addition to her previous years working under Soros sponsored organizations, it is interesting to note the previous relationship with Jim Wallis as well. We must also keep in mind that Wallis represents the Evangelical Immigration Table we have exposed previously. Klein reports:

    Nieto was a national grass-roots organizer at Witness for Peace, which claims to support “peace, justice and sustainable economies in the Americas.” The group was founded by Rev. Jim Wallis’ socialist Sojourners group.

    As we continue to find so many orchestrated moves and intertwined groups involved in the massive flood of immigrants deluging our borders, it would be hard to conclude that this has not been a preplanned event on a massive scale. The Detention Watch Network, with help from just about everyone on the Left, has made it clear that they have nationwide plans in store. But this is just one of their many groups. Who else can we expect to see manipulating us?

    Follow The Money -- The Political Left's Backers
    The Tides Foundation deserves to be investigated under the RICO Act.

    The Tides Foundation, which is not a foundation but a public charity, funnels money from guilt-ridden rich folks to left and far-left activist causes.

    From the donor's perspective, Tides serves as a beard. It hides the true donor-recipient relationship, which, if revealed, would be an embarrassment to the donor.

    From the recipients perspective, Tides serves as a legal and tax-exempt umbrella for a wide variety of leftist, "social change" groups that could never hope to pass the IRS’s tests on their own.

    Tides makes a ton of money in the process, taking an 8 percent fee on all monies transferred as pure profit. (The same profit as the evil oil companies).
    The guys at have an in-depth dossier on the Tides Foundation.Among the most unbelievable “projects” of the Tides Center is something called the Institute for Global Communications ( IGC is a clearinghouse for Leftist propagandists of all stripes, including living-wage advocates, anti-war protesters, slave-reparations hucksters, and a wide variety of extreme environmentalists.

    The Foundation is also a member organization of the International Human Rights Funders Group, that is a network of more than seventy grant-makers who are solely dedicated to financing leftwing groups and causes.

    Immediately after 9/11, the Tides formed a "9/11 Fund" to advocate a "peaceful national response." That fund was replaced by the "Democratic Justice Fund," financed by George Soros' Open Society Institute. George Soros has given more than $7 million to Tides over the years. In a quid pro quo, the Tides Foundation is a major funder of the Shadow Party, a devious name for a George Soros' nationwide network of several dozen unions, non-profit activist groups and think tanks whose agendas are ideologically to the left.

    Tides and the Tides folks have established dozens of front organizations -- all dedicated to funneling monies to the leftist of the left.

    Drummond Pike ~ President

    Drummond Pike, the Foundation's President, was born in San Rafael, California in 1948. He attended the University of California at Santa Cruz, where he majored in political science and gained notoriety as an anti-Viet Nam War protester. He was selected as campus representative to the Board of Regents during his senior year in 1969, where he was known as an aggressive student-power advocate.

    In 1970, young activists from the Ford Foundation's Center for Community Change set up The Youth Project in Washington, DC, with Pike as an associate director. It was a pass-through funding group (and Tides prototype) of rich young heirs who financed anti-capitalist activists.

    Pike, who has been quoted saying, "I can hide any amount of money I want and you can't find it," is a very busy fellow. In addition to the Tides Foundation, Pike has established the Tides Center, and the Tsunami Fund. He also serves as President of Highwater, Inc., a real estate venture and historic preservation effort in the San Francisco Presidio National Park.

    Pike and his wife live in an ocean-view home in affluent Mill Valley, just across the Golden Gate from San Francisco. They also own a million-dollar chalet near Donner Summit in Truckee, California.

    "Who else can we expect to see manipulating us?", the article closes with. Are their choices? I've felt for decades that ALL of America has manipulated me and/or stood against my principles. Today, I can at least be grateful for organizations like Alipac, NumbersUSA, and Fair.

    Now if only a political party existed that seemed principled, as well as committed to Americans, I could add a victory to my short list of meaningful accomplishments! If we do not protect and preserve what we are freely given, we will not be given more, nor do we deserve more.
