    Interesting how these super rich make "donations" and it is not reported as influence peddling. The super rich don't any skin in the game other than to make make more money off of cheap labor while they live in gated communities and their families will never be exposed to the illegals like the rest of the people in this country.

    According to a new report from USA Today, GOP mega donor Paul Singer is helping fund the National Immigration Forum (NIF) for its Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) initiative. Singer is the founder and CEO of Wall Street hedge fund Elliott Management Corporation and the man who made Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign for president happen.

    “Ali Noorani, the forum's [NIF’s] executive director, said financial resources for the Evangelical Immigration Table's efforts are coming from a range of supporters, including new conservative donors such as Paul Singer -- a hedge fund manager and major donor to Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign,” USA Today’s Erin Kelly wrote on Wednesday.

    Singer was not just any major donor to Romney's campaign, he was the major donor. By all accounts, Singer was the reason why Romney won the GOP nomination to face off against Obama.

    “[P]erhaps none of Romney's Wall Street supporters will be more crucial to the candidate's success, or have more influence on his thinking, than Paul Singer,” Fortune Magazine’s Michelle Celarier wrote in April 2012.

    Romney is so close with Singer that he invested his own money with the donor's hedge fund. "According to Romney's financial disclosures, the trust managing his more than $200 million fortune has at least $1 million invested with Elliott," Fortune's Celarier added.

    In October 2011, when Singer committed his resources to Romney after his choice candidate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was not going to run, Politico’s Maggie Haberman wrote that Singer is “one of the biggest “gets” in the Republican bundler community” because he was always “promising to tap his vast donor network and move to get others off the sidelines.”

    Haberman also noted then that Singer’s support for Romney came “at a critical moment in the campaign” as Christie and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had just passed on running, and Romney was trying “to consolidate support among major bundlers and establishment figures.”

    “He’s become known as a ‘fundraising terrorist’ for his focus and arm-twisting,” Haberman added later in her piece. “And he serves as something of a signal for other donors as to who they should support.”

    The EIT group, according to an email sent to Breitbart News, said it is run by NIF. “Early in the formation of the Table’s work, the leadership sought a neutral third-party institution, the National Immigration Forum, to help facilitate our work,” EIT said. In fact, EIT does not even exist as a legal entity and is just a front for the NIF.
    Leftwing billionaire and devout atheist George Soros funds the NIF, and has donated money to Sojourners CEO Jim Wallis. Wallis sits on the board of EIT, and is listed as one of the “heads” of the organization.

    When Breitbart News first exposed the Soros funding of NIF, NIF’s control over EIT, and the discrepancy of who paid for advertisements the EIT was running, prominent NIF member Rev. Samuel Rodriguez attempted to claim that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was involved in paying for those ads.

    The Chamber, of course, denied those claims later in a statement to Breitbart News’ Michael Patrick Leahy. “The Chamber has contributed to the National Immigration Forum generally, and has done so for years,” the Chamber’s Blaire Latoff Holmes said. “But we have never given to the National Immigration Forum for ads or given any money to the Evangelical Immigration Table. Whether or not the National Immigration Forum contributed to this ad, I don’t know – you will have to check with them.”

    To this date, neither NIF nor EIT has specified where that money came from or who really paid for it.

    With this new ad campaign rolling out on behalf of EIT, Noorani is claiming Singer is paying for the ads. This ad buy is worth $400,000, according to USA Today.

    In a quote picked up by the Huffington Post, Noorani argued that while Soros does donate to his NIF, he and other leftist donors “are not even asked to support the Evangelical Immigration Table’s work.”

    “But really, this effort transcends politics,” Noorani said. “The story is not just that conservative businesses, families and individuals are supporting a broad movement for reform. It’s really the 60,000-plus evangelicals in America who have signed up as Pray for Reform prayer partners, and the local congregations whose hearts and minds have changed.”

    The Institutional Left’s focus on creating support for the Senate’s Gang of Eight immigration bill, and the Left’s collaboration with GOP establishment figures like Singer, is hardly limited to evangelicals. On Wednesday morning, Breitbart News reported that American Action Network (AAN), the group of former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN), used likely faulty economic data compiled by three leftist foundations--the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York and Unbound Philanthropy--data first pushed by President Barack Obama’s White House, to argue the Senate immigration bill actually “creates jobs.”

    Doug Holtz-Eakin, the head of American Action Forum (AAF), AAN’s sister group, appears to have broken American Economic Association standards by not releasing his economic model, assumptions made or specifics regarding the data inputs used for AAN’s tool used to claim amnesty would “create jobs.”

    (Atheist) George Soros is the one funding the upcoming media blitz withing the 'organized religious communities' (Catholic, Baptist, etc.) to generate sympathy and support for amnestying millions of illegal aliens.

    But what does George Soros have to gain by this? And why are 'Christians' suddenly allying with a known atheist and God-Hater?

    The Catholic Investigative Agency Exposes Infiltration of Churches

    Explosive Program Blows Lid off Fake Catholic Groups6/28/2010 - 10:20 PM PST

    DETROIT, MI (June 28, 2010) - The latest program offering by is blowing the lid off the undercover and behind the scenes dealing between anti-Catholic political organizations and leftist Catholic groups and how they manipulated the 2008 election to ensure Obama won the White House.

    CIA (Catholic Investigative Agency) is a program dedicated to in-depth probing and research to get at the heart of attacks against the Catholic faith, both inside and outside the Church. The newest episode, "Obama's Counterfeit Catholics" proves the connection between George Soros, the atheist Jewish billionaire and fake Catholic political groups.

    To view the program, just log onto

    Here's the description provided on the RCTV YouTube Channel:

    RealCatholicTV's Michael Voris reveals how: "George Soros and his allies (through the funding of his liberal puppet organizations) have a view of the world that they want to happen. They know in order for this world view to happen, THE domino that needs to fall is the US. In order for the US to fall, you have to get the Catholic vote because you have to get control of the White House. In order to get control of the Catholic vote, you have to twist and deceive and lie and cheat enough Catholics so that you have offset the good one's, and the vote tips to them and all of the dominoes start to fall."

    It looks like the CIA - The Catholic Investigative Agency - did their homework. Regardless of your religious beliefs, if you believe in God, if you believe the Constitution is an Inspired Document, if you agree with George Washington and the rest of the Founding Fathers that Providential Aid was necessary for, and provided to, the American Independence & Revolutionary War effort, then this is a MUST-SEE! Only hardcore atheists may find this a bit boring, but this affects us all, and remember that these fake religious organizations funded by George Soros appear to be attempting to infiltrate every major world religion, and many major American religious bodies, to promote Marxism, and attack legitimate Faith in Jesus Christ.

    The problems highlighted in this series of video clips are faced by most mainstream American Churches (and other faith-based organizations, Christian or otherwise). It does a great job of exposing George Soros' efforts to infiltrate the "Catholic Group" community here in the United States of America.

    George Soros's Evangelicals

    Meet Richard Cizik, head of the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good.

    12:00 AM, AUG 26, 2010 • BY MARK TOOLEY

    For nearly 30 years Richard Cizik represented the National Association of Evangelicals in Washington, D.C. During the George W. Bush administration, he tilted increasingly left and embraced global warming as his iconic issue. A Vanity Fair magazine spread admiringly portrayed him walking on water, just like Jesus. But in December 2008 Cizik stepped too far by endorsing same-sex unions during an interview with Terry Gross NPR. He was forced to resign from NAE.


    This summer, Cizik was back with Gross on NPR. He has created a left-leaning New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good. Initially after his NAE departure Cizik was affiliated with Ted Turner’s United Nations Foundation. Then he became a fellow at George Soros’s Open Society Institute, concurrent to his creating the new liberal evangelical group. With Gross, Cizik was unrepentant about his evolving views on same-sex unions, and possibly marriage. And he was very grateful to the left-wing billionaire philanthropist who made his fall from NAE a soft bump.

    “These wonderful people at the Open Society Institute evaluated me along with a lot of other applicants and decided to endow me with a fellowship for the past year, so I haven’t been without means,” Cizik explained to Gross. “My friends at the Open Society Institute. We have much more in common than we have that divides us.” Perhaps not fully comprehending Cizik’s own leftward journey across the political spectrum, Gross seemed surprised about an evangelical finding such camaraderie with Soros’s philanthropy. Cizik explained: “In the Old Testament there was an unbelieving, in other words non-Jew, king by the name of Cyrus who was responsible for the rebuilding of the temple. And so my friends across the pond in Great Britain, they once said to me, ‘Richard, Soros is your King Cyrus.’”

    The atheist billionaire may have been a “King Cyrus” to liberal evangelicals other than Cizik. Sojourners activist Jim Wallis, who, if his boasts are accurate, has been the chief Evangelical Left chaplain to the Obama administration, has reluctantly admitted that he too has benefitted from Soros’s largesse. In recent years his Sojourners group has received at least $325,000 from Soros’s Open Society Institute. While Cizik lacks a popular following, Wallis writes best selling books like “God’s Politics,” is a sought after campus speaker, and was arguably the chief point man in 2008 for biting a slice out of typically overwhelmingly evangelical support for Republicans.

    Unlike Cizik, Wallis was grudging in his admission of a Soros connection. Cizik over the years has shifted from right to left, so his affiliation with Ted Turner, and then Soros, seem natural. Wallis began as a campus radical with the Students for a Democratic Society, touted the Sandinistas during the 1980s, and denounced Clinton for signing Welfare Reform in 1996. But over the last decade Wallis has reinvented a new, cuddlier image as the graying, post-ideological prophet who shuns temporal political labels. When evangelicals became an especially key constituency during the George W. Bush years, Wallis rediscovered and advertised his evangelical roots, though he generally avoids theological self-revelation and describes his evangelical beliefs in political terms. Appealing to evangelical colleges and suburban mega-church yuppies, Wallis probably prefers not to become known as George Soros’s favorite evangelical activist.

    Until recently, the Open Society Institute’s website openly listed its grants to Wallis: $200,000 grant in 2004, $25,000 in 2006, and $100,000 in 2007. World magazine editor Marvin Olasky was the first publish to Wallis’s Soros funding in July, while asking the self-professed “non-partisan” Wallis to be more transparent about his work and ideology. Olasky also quoted Wallis from 2005: "I know of no connections to those liberal funds and groups that are as direct as the Religious Right's ties to right-wing funders." And Olasky noted that Wallis’s Sojourners group, during Wallis’s transformation into the purported voice of centrist evangelicals tired of Republicans, had climbed from receipts of $1,601,171 in 2001-2002 to $5,283,650 in 2008-2009, as, in Olasky’s words, “secular leftists have learned to use the religious left to elect Obama and others.”

    Wallis responded angrily to Olasky’s revelations of Soros funding. “It’s not hyperbole or overstatement to say that Glenn Beck lies for a living,” Wallis fumed about another recent nemesis in early August toPatheos, a Christian website. “I’m sad to see Marvin Olasky doing the same thing. No, we don’t receive money from Soros. Given the financial crisis of nonprofits, maybe Marvin should call Soros and ask him to send us money.” Wallis insisted: “So, no, we don’t receive money from George Soros. Our books are totally open, always have been. Our money comes from Christians who support us and who readSojourners.” He urged his interviewer: “So tell Marvin he should check his facts, and not imitate Glenn Beck.”

    Evidently after proof of the Soros grants appeared online (despite the Open Society Institute’s having removed the original links), Wallis had his public relations staffer follow up with Patheos with a confession: “I should have declined to comment until I was able to review the blog post in question and consulted with our staff on the details of our funding over the past several years,” Wallis explained. “Instead, I answered in the spirit of the accusation and did not recall the details of our funding over the decade in question.” Wallis denied that Sojourners is “beholden to funders on the political left” and instead promotes “biblical social justice.” But he admitted, tacitly, that the “allegation” concerning three Open Society Institute grants was true. These funds “made up the tiniest fraction” of Sojourners budget, “so small that I hadn't remembered them.”

    Soros support for evangelical left fixtures like Wallis and Cizik smartly illustrates that Soros, or at least his staff at the Open Society Institute, understand the importance of religion in American politics even if the billionaire financier himself is an adamant non-believer. How evangelical recipients of Soros cash explain this support to their church-going constituents may be more complicated.
