    Leaked Docs: Soros Aims to Enlarge Electorate by 10 Million Voters by 2018

    Soros has bankrolled efforts to challenge voter ID laws, register minority voters

    A top priority of liberal billionaire George Soros is to enlarge the U.S. electorate by 10 million voters by 2018, according to leaked documents.

    The plan to grow the electorate by millions of voters was discussed during a May 2014 board meeting of the Open Society Foundations, a liberal grant-making group founded by Soros. A 220-page guide detailing the plan was among more than 2,500 hacked Soros documents released by DC Leaks, which publishes documents from influential officials around the world.

    The guide covers strategies and tactics the group will employ in the United States from 2015 to 2018. The top goals listed by the guide are to "advance electoral reform" and "combat suppression."

    "The following four goals form the scaffolding of U.S. Programs’ work," the guide states. "1. An American democracy strengthened through increased meaningful participation, inclusive practice, and accountability." The third strategic goal expands upon this, calling for "Full political, economic, and civic participation of immigrants and communities of color by dismantling the barriers and strengthening the conduits to opportunity."

    Later, the guide discusses expanding the electorate by "at least 10 million voters" in the United States. This would be accomplished "by lowering barriers to voter registration through the various forms of modernization and increased ballot access while sustaining and expanding the franchise by establishing strong protections against vote suppression, denial and dilution."

    An Open Society Foundations spokesperson affirmed the group’s interest in voter turnout.

    "The Open Society Foundations supports efforts to encourage wider participation in U.S. elections, and opposes measures used to try to suppress voter participation," the spokesperson said via email.

    The leaked documents help explain why Soros has quietly funded efforts to battle voter identification laws and target Democratic-trending voters for registration.

    Soros began supporting challenges to voter ID laws in 2014.

    "We hope to see these unfair laws, which often disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our society, repealed," Soros said about the campaign in 2015. He vowed to spend at least $5 million on the effort.

    The campaign’s leader is Marc Elias, a partner at the D.C-based law firm Perkins Coie and Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer. Elias’ work on the legal project is separate from his work on the campaign, although Clinton supports the effort.

    The first in a series of lawsuits claiming that voter ID laws disproportionately hurt minority voters was filed in Ohio just days before the Open Society documents were transmitted to the board of directors in May 2014.

    Elias filed the Ohio lawsuit on behalf of a group called the Ohio Organizing Collaborative. That group was later replaced on the lawsuit when it was investigated by a state criminal agency for allegedly forging signatures and registering dead people to vote.

    Weeks after the Ohio lawsuit was filed, a second lawsuit was filed challenging Wisconsin’s voter ID laws. A third lawsuit was filed in Virginia soon afterward, a challenge Soros and Elias would ultimately lose. Lawsuits in other states followed.

    Soros has also funded recent voter registration campaigns from his own bank account.

    Soros donated $3 million to the Immigrant Voters Win PAC, which was established to fund the Families Fight Back campaign. That campaign aims to register 400,000 Hispanic voters in swing states before the November elections.

    J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a nonprofit law firm that litigates to defend election integrity, said that Soros is spending big to transform American elections.

    "George Soros is involved in every aspect of manipulating the rules of American elections," Adams told the Washington Free Beacon. "From funding Pew’s efforts to centralize election administration, to fueling litigation that attacks election integrity laws, to fanning the flames of racial agitation and polarization, Soros dollars are doing all they can to fundamentally transform American elections."

    George Soros warned to keep out of British politics after financing anti-Brexit group

    The "destructive" investor George Soros was told to “stay out of British politics” after admitting to providing 700,000 GBP (250,000,000 HUF) worth of grants for pro-EU groups

    GEORGE SOROS SOROS PLAN STOP SOROS UNITED KINGDOM BREXIT

    Billionaire George Soros has been meddling in another European nation’s politics – this time in the United Kingdom’s affairs.

    The “destructive” investor was told to “stay out of British politics” after admitting to providing 700,000 GBP (250,000,000 HUF) worth of grants for pro-EU groups.

    Several furious Brexit backers turned on Soros when he owned up to funding anti-Brexit groups to secure a second EU Referendum.

    According to reports, Soros has given 400,000 GBP (140,000,000 HUF) to the ‘Best for Britain’ organization to fund a nationwide anti-Brexit campaign.

    Lord Lamont, a former politician in the UK who was chancellor when Soros helped plunge the nation into a recession 25 years ago, said he should stay out of politics.

    “It seems very perverse and odd for the Soros foundation, which exists to promote democracy, to seek to undermine democracy in this way,” he said. “George Soros is a brilliant financier, but he should stick to finance and stay out of British politics.”

    EXCLUSIVE: Hungarian Gov’t Steps Up Fight Against George Soros

    After a two-year battle to keep migrants out of the country, Hungary has directed its full attention toward one of its own: billionaire investor George Soros.

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban wrapped up a six-week anti-Soros campaign Saturday. The streets of Budapest have been filled with posters and billboards of the Hungarian-born billionaire with the caption “Don’t let Soros get the last laugh!”

    The campaign follows a series of moves to halt Soros’ operations in the country. The government argues that Soros is pushing for a one million migrant influx to Europe per year. It is now trying to impose legislation that would force NGOs in the country to reveal where their funding originates and the purpose for which the money was received.

    “In Hungarian public life there is a single important element which is not transparent: Soros’s mafia-style network and its agent organizations,” Orban’s spokesman Zoltan Kovacs told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is why the government insisted that [the] parliament decide on making these organizations transparent, as the Hungarian people have the right to know who represents what and for what purpose.”

    The frosty relationship between Orban and Soros reached an all-time low after Hungary passed education reforms in March that could threaten the future of the Soros-funded Central European University in Budapest. Soros lashed out atOrban, describing his “mafia state” as “one which maintains a facade of democracy.”

    Orban further launched a “national consultation” series in April to ask eligible voters for advise on how to tackle a number of issues the government perceives to be external threats. The prime minister vowed to “stop Soros” from “executing his grand plan and his grand business project” at the consultation’s closing event in June.

    “One of the elements of George Soros’s plan is for one million migrants to be brought into Europe every year,” Kovacs told TheDCNF. “The second element in the billionaire’s plan would be a European asylum authority, which would seize powers in this area from the authorities of the member states.” Kovacs claims around 99 percent of the 1,682,033 people who took part in the consultation backed the government’s stance.

    The poster campaign that followed raised some eyebrows for the portrayal of a smiling Soros with the text “Don’t let Soros get the last laugh!” Soros, a Jew, claims the posters deliberately played off Nazi attacks against the “laughing Jew.”

    “I am distressed by the current Hungarian regime’s use of anti-Semitic imagery as part of its deliberate disinformation campaign,” Soros said in a statement. “Equally, I am heartened that together with countless fellow citizens the leadership of the Hungarian Jewish community has spoken out against the campaign.”

    Kovacs firmly rejects that the government in any way had anti-Semitic motives behind the campaign. “The campaign you are referring to seeks to draw attention to the threat which George Soros represents on the issue of immigration – namely his standpoint that the borders of Europe must open up to immigrants,” Kovacs told TheDCNF. “We would like to emphasize, however, that the poster campaign has nothing to do with Mr. Soros’s religious affiliation – if indeed he has any.”

    The government regards the issue of illegal immigration to be “a matter of national security” and will therefore mobilize “the political and legal power” in its efforts against Soros, according to Kovacs. “The Hungarian standpoint is that illegal migration is clearly a matter of national security,” Kovacs told TheDCNF. “We shall mobilize the political and legal power of the Hungarian state against anyone who undermines the security of Hungary – regardless of their origins, religious affiliation or wealth.”

    Michael Vachon, a spokesman for Soros, described Orban’s accusations as “fantasy” in a statement emailed to TheDCNF.

    “Soros’s position is entirely consistent with mainstream European values,” Vachon said. “The Hungarian regime’s xenophobia and demonization of refugees are anti-European. The claim that Soros is promoting a scheme to import a million illegal immigrants into Europe is Victor Orban’s fantasy.”

    Report: Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif tells parliament regime has worked closely with Soros’s Open Society Foundations

    By Thomas Lifson

    If this report from Israel National News is correct, the Axis of Evil has a new non-state member, George Soros and his network of Open Society Foundations.
    Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif said Sunday that the Iranian government has worked closely with billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundations (OSF) organization.
    Zarif made the remarks in response to questions raised in the Iranian parliament. According to Zarif, the activity began before he entered his current position, and he boasted that he had succeeded in "keeping the activity organized."
    If the cooperation began before Zarif took office as foreign minister, that would mean that it has been ongoing for at least 5 years. It would mean that the JCPOA Iran Nuclear Deal was negotiated while Soros’s network was cooperating in unspecified ways with a regime that has openly declared it wants to wipe Israel from the map.
    Lest you think that Soros’s ethnic heritage as a Hungarian Jew has predisposed him to aid Israel, read this account of his efforts to undermine the Jewish State.


    Iran’s parliament has been reflecting the unrest among the Iranian people, who are suffering under the economic collapse caused in large part by President Trump’s sanctions. Last week, President Hassan Rouhani was summoned to parliament and hectored with questions about the economy. And a move was made to impeach the education minister, but called off yesterday.
    The sole report of this admission in parliament about coordination with Soros does not contain any details or context. So, it is not clear why the admission was made, nor what the exact nature of the cooperation might be.
