“The Obama government has quietly spent millions of taxpayer dollars to destabilize the democratically elected, center-right government in Macedonia by colluding with left-wing billionaire philanthropist George Soros, records obtained by Judicial Watch show. Barack Obama’s U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia, Jess L. Baily, has worked behind the scenes with Soros’ Open Society Foundation to funnel large sums of American dollars for the cause, constituting an interference of the U.S. Ambassador in domestic political affairs in violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.” – Judicial Watch News Release
Despite the multitude of political activities by a multi-billionaire who funds numerous left-wing organizations in the United States — and donates to numerous others such as Black Lives Matter — there appears to be no government law enforcement or regulatory agencies probing even one of his suspicious money trails. While the IRS allegedly violated the rights of nonprofit, conservative groups by secretly stonewalling tax exempt requests, Soros has never been the subject of such an investigation by that agency or anyone else within the federal government labyrinth.
But on Wednesday, officials with the nonpartisan Judicial Watch notified the news media that they had filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of State and its subsidiary U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for all materials regarding pay outs and political activities of Soros’ Open Society Foundation office located in Macedonia. The Macedonia organization allegedly obtained close to $5 million from USAID between 2012 and 2016.
If the creator of the James Bond spy novels, Ian Fleming, were alive and writing a new thriller today, it wouldn’t be a stretch to believe he’d base his diabolical, untouchable villain on the life and activities of George Soros, including allegations of his being a Nazi-sympathizer (see video below).
The Judicial Watch lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development ). The well-known and successful non-government investigators filed this lawsuit after both the State Department and the USAID failed to respond to a February 16, 2017, FOIA request seeking:
- All records related to any grants, contracts, or disbursements of funds by the Department of State to the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s subsidiaries. This request includes all related requests for funding, payment authorizations, or similar records, as well as all related records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any official, employee, or representative of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
- Any records of communication between any official, employee, or representative of the Department of State and any officer, employee, or representative of the Open Society Foundation -Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations. This request includes responsive records of communication sent from or directed to U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia Jess L. Baily.
- All analyses or similar records regarding the political activities of the Open Society Foundation -Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations.
- All messages transmitted via the State Department’s SMART system sent from any U.S. Government employee or contractor operating under the Chief of Mission’s authority at the U.S. Embassy in Skopje that pertain to the Open Society Foundation – Macedonia and/or any of the Foundation’s affiliated organizations.
The USAID reports that between February 27, 2012, and August 31, 2016, they forked over $4,819,125.00 in taxpayer money to Soros’s Open Society Foundation – Macedonia (FOSM), in a partnership with four local civil society organizations.
The USAID’s website links to http://www.soros.org.mk, and says the project trained hundreds of young Macedonians “on topics such as freedom of association, youth policies, citizen initiatives, persuasive argumentation and use of new media.”
At the height of the presidential race between Clinton and Trump, DCLeaks documents lifted from Soros’ Open Society exposed the more than half-million dollars Soros forked over to PACO, a radical organization of community organizers, for travel and lodging for Vatican strategy meetings in anticipation of the 2016 election. Despite the fact that Trump holds tightly to the pro-life philosophy — and in fact, he was endorsed by many Protestant clergy men and women including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece Alveda King — the Catholic Church and its U.S. members appear enthralled by the likes of Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, all of whom support partial-birth abortions.
