Fresh update on "soros" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"Just a little while ago. There's overthrow of the United States government. Okay, that's not important now. Okay. Ed down by mister Trump, Bill Barr set out in 2019 to dig into their shared theory that the Russian investigation lightly stemmed from a conspiracy by intelligence or law enforcement agencies to lead the inquiry bar turned to a hard nosed prosecutor named John Durham and later granted him special counsel status to carry on after mister Trump left office. He's technically still working for Merrick Garland, right? I'd be calling for a meeting today. Yeah, a little bit, right? A mister space meeting. I'm just rehearsing. Yeah. Okay. But after almost four years, far longer than the Russia investigation itself, Durham's work is coming to an end without any uncovering anything like the deep state plot alleged by Trump and suspected by Barr, moreover, a months long review by The New York Times found that the man, the main trust of the Durham inquiry was marked by some of the very same flaws, including strange justification for opening it, and its role in fueling partisan conspiracy theories that would never be charged in court that Trump allies characterize how they characterize the Russia investigation. Oh, interviews, right? Revealed an array of previously unreported episodes that show how the Durham inquiry became roiled by internal dissent and ethical disputes and it went unsuccessfully down one path after another, even as Trump and Barr promoted a misleading narrative of its progress. They played all the clips last night of all the Fox News. Oh yeah. I'm sell durhams found this terms found that gonna be soon. Blah, blah, at the complete opposite of what was actually happening. The best was when they said, oh, they found proof of criminal wrongdoing. Right. Trump right implying it was the point of their right that there was wrongdoing in the origins of the Russia inquiry when it was other crimes we didn't even know about yet. Which by the way, when are we getting that story? I mean, he is right. They work for us a special counsel. You need to either say why you're prosecuting or why you didn't. That's part of the. Okay. Bar and mister Durham never disclosed that their inquiry expanded in the fall of 2019 based on a tip from Italian officials to include a criminal investigation into suspicious financial dealings related to mister Trump. The specifics of the tip and how they handle the investigation remain unclear, but mister Durham brought no charges over it. Oh, that's so shocking, isn't it? Durham used the Russian intelligence memos suspected by other U.S. officials of containing disinformation to gain access to the emails of an aide to George Soros. Oh dear God, every boogeyman, right from the left. Mister Durham used grand jury powers to keep pursuing the emails even after a judge twice rejected his request to access to them for access to them. The emails yielded evidence that mister Durham has cited has not revealed has revealed no evidence, excuse me, that Durham has cited in any case. He pursued. That is a fishing expedition to investigate your quote unquote enemies, right? Yeah. And how is Soros connected to any of this except that he's connected to every conspiracy and right wing world? Yes. Because he's their boogeyman. Right. There were deeper internal fractures on the Durham team than a previously been known, the publicly unexplained resignation in 2020 of his number two and longtime aid nor a Danny, who was the culmination of a series of disputes between them over prosecutorial ethics a year later, two more prosecutors strongly objected to plans to indict a lawyer with ties to Hillary Clinton's campaign based on evidence. They warned was too flimsy and one left the team in protest of mister Durham's decision to proceed anyway. Well, he's had two. Right, these cases blew up in his face because of this, these prosecutors told him there's no there there. And he did it anyway. He has been a complete unmitigated flop. And yet, okay, I want to ask Glenn. Is he criminally liable in all this? The fact that he and Barr are out like sipping scotch together. Can you imagine if Jack Smith and Merrick Garland were out spotted having dinner and yucking it up every night? You're not even supposed to be Italy? Yes. Took a foreign trip together? Did anyone at any point say those aren't pillows? That's all I want to know. It's going to be our word of the day. Excuse me. Okay. A criminal defense lawyer said he had a hard time squaring mister Durham's prior reputation as an independent minded straight shooter with his end of career conduct as mister Barr's special counsel. This stuff has my head spinning. When did these guys drink the Kool-Aid and who served it to them? I mean, I Russia, I don't know. That's what I don't. I just don't get it. It's just that there is a just line of roadkill from Donald Trump and while attorneys generals overseeing politically sensitive inquiries tend to keep their distance from each other Durham visited bar in his office for times for weekly updates and consultations about day to today work. They sometimes dined in scotch to get oh my God. This is just 16 kinds of wrong. Yep. I highlighted the important parts before Clyde ate my highlighter. Clyde at your highlighter? Well, flight is obsessed with my highlighter. But this is what I was able to accomplish. I just dumb. Before Clyde. Yes. He's dumb. He's not stupid. He is Owen Wilson of the dog world. And he has a ton of blond hair. He's delightfully quirkily charming. And dead
Charlie Savage's Reporting Suggests Bad News for George Soros Soon
"The deep states freaking out about something they leak a story that says the exact opposite to these idiots So when this story in The New York Times popped this morning excuse me yesterday morning January 26th I saw it this morning By Charlie savage and Goldman attacking Bill Barr the former attorney general who's not even in the job anymore And John Durham I thought to myself what do you think The same thing I thought You applied the dipsy doo flipper and you're like holy Moses Dora must have found something Now I've been hard on John dorm the investigations as far as turned up no legitimate action whatsoever except the couple dog cases in court against sussman they lost which was a real case but it was a dog case in court the case was legit But it was a dog because they didn't get enough people to flip But I think we may have been a little hard on Durham And if Adam Goldman and savage are attacking them folks I think he found something I'm going to go over again what I think he found I'm not going to read the whole thing But if you read The New York Times piece he's talking about alleged hacked Russian intelligence memos in this piece These two authors these deep states stenographers And what he's saying here is that Dora may have found the connection between some of these hacked alleged hacked intelligence members in George Soros And then they go on to say but don't worry there's nothing to see here Basically John dorms going after George Soros for no reason which if you read Goldman and savage strategically you'll understand that means what It means the exact opposite that something's about to drop about George Soros
Our Government Is Bought and Sold
"And gentlemen our government is bought and sold I am sorry to have to tell you this I mean that I'm really sorry to have to tell you that you thought you lived in a constitutional republic But that this representative democracy we have where we've elected people to represent our interests very few not all but very few of them are working for you They're working for foreign governments They're working for lobbyists They're working and selling intelligence They're selling access They're selling information I'm going to discuss this on my Fox show tomorrow night too at 9 o'clock I've got another angle on this I've got a bunch of stuff I'm not holding back from here I'm just working on it still You know how I do that But I'm sorry to have to inform you You have been sold out It's not just George Soros either He was the focus of the last hour and a half He's not the only one There are people on the Republican and Democrat side who have bought off intelligence people and bought people off in the lobbying field and the lobbying space forever
Matt Palumbo: Why Does George Soros Want Higher Crime Rates?
"Why I mean I get why he likes liberal ideas He's a liberal He was you know he probably believes for some stupid reason they were High taxes crappy public school But the public safety situation He's not a dumb guy He's a billionaire He's not stupid So he knows that these DAs and prosecutors he's getting elected are not enforcing crime He sees the numbers They're undeniable numbers crime rates going up So clearly it speaks to me to a volitional act It's not an accident So why is he doing it Yeah I mean it is obviously a tough question because I'm not in his head And you know I always feel like it's sort of a lazy answer to say you know like political opponents or evil and want to destroy the country but that is the most plausible explanation I mean when I was writing the book I read everything source was written which a lot of its business and finance and that was my background And he's a very smart guy very original thinker He knows exactly how to look at data And it is undeniable it's happened So the question becomes well what exactly is the end goal Is it does he want to demonize police the federalized police Does he think that destroying the country will somehow make people more receptive to future leftist ideas I mean that could be one explanation But yeah this is one of those cases where I generally try to get people to benefit of the doubt and assume they mean well with Soros that could not be said at all And even with the non Law & Order stuff most of it's just self serving You know one of the founding myths of George Soros has some neoliberals will give is that he helped a lot of post Soviet countries transition away from communist capitalism and almost seems right wing And then you look at what was actually going on and he was just in bed with corrupt regimes buying up their assets for pennies on the dollar and that was sort of a rebranded as some capitalist endeavor So everything about the guy's a fraud and I generally think he's an evil person
Matt Palumbo: George Soros' ROI Seen Higher in Elected Prosecutors
"You know what You were on Fox and Friends the other day I was up at 4 o'clock in the morning watching you You looked up did you have some coffee or something You look rather awake up Hour and a half early so the cost was digest but yeah I was sorry awake fortunately Because he was on Fox and Friends first and it was legit like four four 15 or something I turned it on I'm like oh look there's Matt So Matt and I worked together at this place He manages bongino report dot com had the greatest headline ever the other day Nancy Pelosi does an exorcism at her house and magically survives That was great very funny actually crazy on the weekend But I'm like gosh this guy looks awake and one of the reasons is I know you would genuinely like talking about this topic of Soros because it speaks to a larger leftist ideology and you brought up this great point You said bang for the buck Soros funding local prosecutors is the greatest deal ever Like why bother to overturn an entire city council a state assembly a governor's race or a mayor's race which could cost you tens of millions when you could spend probably 500,000 get a prosecutor and they would say hey I don't really care what laws you Republicans or Democrats pass I'm just going to get my guy in and he's not going to enforce anything we don't like It was such a brilliant point Yeah yeah I hate to say the source is brilliant for figuring it out but unfortunately it is And the thing too is like these are not you know these are not exactly high profile races So you can you know it's very hard to buy a presidential candidate There's billions spent But you can buy a DA's race for a couple hundred grand or there was actually a case that they had in the book where he donated so much money to account on it The opponent just dropped out instead of even compete So yeah and success for its 90 plus percent which is I mean for any category of anything really it's just spectacular unfortunately
Matt Palumbo: 1 in 5 Americans Live Among a Soros-Backed Prosecutor
"The left is so afraid of us gasking questions Now keep in mind the left has no problem asking questions about donors they don't like Even donors who aren't really conservative like the Koch brothers who are more libertarian right But if you donate to a cause they don't like then you are immediately to be hung from your toenails Never to be accepted and polite company again And harassed for the rest of your life But when we ask questions about people like Soros who unquestionably we have the money trail have given money to prosecutors who have lorded over street chaos all of a sudden the line is what This is definitely anti semitic It's so predictable with these idiots I would say there's a war on noticing and you see this actually in any headline where Democrats do something wrong The headline is never afraid as like hey this Democrat did something wrong It's sort of phrased in this phrasing of get a load of these Republicans for noticing they did something wrong with a phrase us of the Republicans pounce That's the whole Republicans pounce thing Yeah yeah so what the authors prosecutors and I reported on in the New York Post article there's not 75 of them nationwide unfortunately one of them takes a boot and got recall But Soros is back the most $40 million And he's donated over his lifetime's 32 billion And I don't think having research as empire I don't think he's ever gotten this kind of bang for his buck because now one in 5 Americans live in an area where they are beholden to a serverless prosecutor You know when Soros is donating tens of millions who are presidential elections the silver lining when he backs like John Kerry or Clinton is well at least he incinerated that money Here is going to a very bad cause And the latest person I mentioned is Buddha vivira if you sort of I thought it was emblematic of all of them And even though this thing is well we're not going to enforce lower level laws because then we can enforce you know we can spend more time prosecuting rape and murder And
Matt Palumbo: A Hit Success With 'The Man Behind the Curtain'
"Matt people have shown a real interest in this book I saw the New York Post had one of your pieces on the front page I think everybody's starting to wake up to just how damaging this guy's been Yeah thanks for having me on It seems like every single week there is a new story out where it's a Law & Order type story where it seems like a parody of reality like a sort of Franz Kafka esque story So the latest with this prosecutor Buddha beverage out of looting county and he was just sort of the latest source back prosecutor to announce he wouldn't be enforcing the law So I just thought you know it's a perfect opportunity to a detail the latest craziness and how it's sort of emblematic of everything Soros has been up to lately Folks the book again it's called the man behind the curtain There's a lot of stuff in there And I think it's really going to surprise you about exactly what Soros has been up to I
Founder Steve Maxwell Tells Us About CCDF-USA
"Joining us now is Steve Maxwell founder of CCD F USA and Jonathan houlihan, director of legal operations for CCD F USA in Texas, Steven Jonathan, welcome Steve. Why don't you take an opportunity to introduce the organization and what you guys are able to do and the points on the board you're putting up. Very good. Thank you, Charlie. Thank you for having us on today. Yeah. Organization was founded in April of 2021. And the main mission at the national level is to engage the citizens in critical counties in the country and empower them with the tools that they need to go after this apparatus. It's really trying to take our country down. So at the local level, they're focused on elections, anything to do with elections, education. We have a faith division. And also just follow the money. And then at the national level, we have a legal team of media team. We have information services where we can really do a lot of analytics analysis to follow with its money's going. And then we have an administration team that helps them with all the administration side of their local county operation. And since we've started Charlie, it's been we can only give God credit for the results we've had so far. We're just really getting going and we're really excited about what we're talking to you about today.
Rep. Andy Biggs Wants a Fiscal Path of Sustainability
"Likely is it to get to some of the meteor topics? Because I agree, and I know you do, you want to get to the real meat of it. But the woke stuff obviously, I think, is important for a variety of reasons, but the real meat is in sending the money to Ukraine. It's the massive amount of waste in the civil bureaucracies, like the 87,000 IRS agents, and so what is the plan or the strategy to be able to kind of go through this? I mean, I think we should entertain a government shutdown. I think it's that important, but I don't know if the shutdown actually is part of this, right? This is a separate issue because this is about just the full faith and credit of the United States. Is that correct? Yeah, this doesn't really ultimately lend itself to a budget government shutdown. What it does is it provides leverage in Charlie, I'm a big believer that legislating involves leverage. This is a leverage point for us to reduce spending. So you're right. Last year, most people don't realize this, we spent a $125 billion to Ukraine. Charlie, a $125 billion to Ukraine in an undeclared war that we're not supposed to be fighting in and it's supposed to be and it's become a proxy war. Those are the type of things that are just outrageous. And there's so much of it there. My staff last year we put together a big list. Just a Department of Homeland Security alone. And this is where you need to go as to start. It's the easy. That's what I call, it's the low hanging fruit. But Charlie, we fight within our own party. I once had a bill to eliminate a 15, $20 million program that was everybody admitted was duplicated in two other agencies. And I couldn't even get it out of committee. I only had like four or 5 Republicans vote for it in committee. That's where we're up against Charlie, and that's why this is an important leverage point. If we're ever going to get back on a fiscal path of sustainability. So
The Debt Ceiling Showdown With Congressman Andy Biggs
"There is a critical fight that is looming in Congress. In fact, it's happening right now. I'm going to read from Politico dot com. Senate Republicans tell the house the debt ceiling fight is on you, basically the Senate Republicans are doing what they do best, which is to run to the hills and do absolutely nothing. So this is on the new House of Representatives to fight to hold the line and hopefully use the debt ceiling fight as a way to get an effectuate some meaningful change. Joining us now from the great state of Arizona is Andy Biggs, Andy, welcome back to the program. Hey, Charlie, good to be with you. So Andy, walk us through what is exactly going on with the debt ceiling fight, the Senate wants nothing to do with it, but we have the majority and more specifically the house freedom caucus has really more power than ever before. So what's the strategy what's the game plan of this critical fight? Okay, so for people who don't understand this, the debt ceiling hit last week and that's an estimation that we're going to run out of money. Now the way that happens is that came on the 19th and then from the 19th for about until July or August, we have enough money, but we have enough we're going to take some special measures to get us through that. But before then, we're going to have to raise the debt ceiling, so we don't default on our loans. So that that's what it boils down to. The problem is the Democrats and some of my own Republican friends have spent this into oblivion to get there and they believe in something called the modern monetary theory, Charlie, which means that you could just keep printing money and it won't have any effects. In other words, you can just keep borrowing money. So what we need to do is to counterbalance that you're going to have to have a short term increase in your debt in order to pay off all of your loans and other your obligations. But you're going to have to reduce your spending and the way you reduce your spending as you go through, first of all, and you find anything, just like you would in a normal budget. I did it last week. I didn't realize I had so many Amazon channels. Amazon Prime channels, Charlie. And so I went through and I just started whacking them because it's crazy. You have to do the same thing at a bigger level.
The Most Important Word in Biden's Criminal Justice System
"America, the one word that most aptly describes their motivation when it comes to the criminal justice system is not safety. It's not punishment. It's not deterrence, you know what that word is, right? It's equity. Equity in the criminal justice system, that's the most important thing to the Biden administration and to the Soros funded left wing VAs that are carrying out the mission. If the jails and if the prisons are too overwhelmingly represented by one race, well, then that's not equitable. And that, of course, would not be fair. We have to have equity. It doesn't matter if one race is committing more crimes on a routine regular frequent basis than another race is, it does not matter. We have to have the same number of people in jail of all races. As a matter of fact, we should probably start tipping it a little bit more toward the Caucasian population in the prisons because the Caucasian population is the overwhelmingly majority population of the country and of all of these states. So it's about equity.
When We Lose Faith in Our Institutions With Rep. Mike Johnson
"I think is more and more concerning, especially when you're having criminal justice across the country, questioned because of people not enforcing the law. Right. I mean, of course, the DAs are elected in most jurisdictions by the people, all of them almost. And you've had people like George Soros, the big radical leftist anarchist, socialist, whatever you want to describe him, he goes by many descriptors, but he's a big, big, wealthy donor outside the country who is invested in local district attorney races. And when that started happening a few years ago, we all scratched our heads and said, what is he up to? Well, now it's obvious. They elected people who are not just soft on crime. They're not interested in prosecuting crime at all. And that's why we have unprecedented rates of murder and mayhem and most of our American cities certainly all the ones that are perhaps it sounds like hyperbole. It's not a political statement. That is the truth of the matter. It's by any objective analysis of the data. That's what it shows. Look,
Caller: What's Happening to Netanyahu Is Happening to Republicans
"One about what you're talking about Benjamin Netanyahu Isn't that kind of the crazy crap we're trying to have our swamp up in Washington D.C. due to any of our Republicans And that what they're doing to them you're asking Well trying to basically make it where they can run us out Thank you I think in a different way you're a 100% correct They're intimidating these Republicans I think they're trying to make an example out of Trump He didn't deserve to be impeached twice He didn't deserve to be criminally investigated He doesn't deserve what's going on now I'm not even just talking morally And hasn't done anything Then they secure 6 year of his taxes with the support of the chief justice of the Supreme Court to do what to leak them There's no criminality in those taxes He ran his businesses on the up and up then you have letitia James who is a radical kook kami in Albany She runs for office She gets to keep her license even though she said one of the reasons she's running is to bring charges against Trump Then you have another kook left wing DA who puts a grand jury together to go after Trump in Atlanta Then you have another kook Soros DA in Manhattan who's trying to find ways to go after the Trump businesses too That's three Democrat DAs slash attorneys general Then you have a U.S. attorney special counsel or special prosecutor really This guy Smith they yank him from The Hague where he's busy Prosecuting war criminals to go against Trump on January 6th and documents which is a disgusting thing what they've done there While they're covering up for the bidens hunter Joe Jim the corrupt Biden family while they refuse to enforce the border while they refuse to prosecute people who are threatening justices
John Solomon: How Joe Biden Acts in the Interest of Hunter's Clients
"This classified documents scandal And I believe John that it is a rather small scandal in the bigger scheme of things that I believe in I believe Biden was a foreign agent I don't mean like 007 CAA I mean the economic sense of a principal agent problem in that there was money changing hands filtered through his son that was clearly meant to influence Biden I mean Hunter Biden's admitted as such Now your PC yesterday that I covered in the hill where you wrote about the Soros connection in Ukraine is really stunning Because it really speaks to this bigger problem how there were Ukrainian interests to arm and get money to Ukraine way before the war by people like Kalani yuk and others who were lobbying for this Daria Colonia And those were Biden interests too interest as his son was on the payroll of a Ukrainian company Yeah listen all of the foreign ties are troubling now because you see so many instances where Joe Biden each and every time acts in the interest of his son's clients And let's just go through some of them that we now we now see The most recent one this just happened in the last year Joe Biden works for the University of Pennsylvania He is a guest professor there against $911,000 for two years of very light work basically lending his name to a center That university gets a ton of Chinese money as soon as they get that Chinese money What are they doing They're lobbying the Joe Biden administration to shut down the FBI's main counter espionage program And before long boom America Garland goes any shuts down the very program that by the way Chris ray the FBI director says is so important In fact less than two weeks after Joe Biden's old employer which was flush with Chinese cash makes the request put survivor public Merrick Garland complies and shuts down a very important counter espionage program for the FBI trying to keep Chinese spies out of American academia
"soros" Discussed on WCPT 820
"That could have been George Soros. What's wrong with you? It was Bill Gates. I forgot to look at the dang it. Okay, we're not watching how doctor red letter is a big deal, a lot of big deal people. He just hung up on as a bit on our show. Do you know, okay. Doctor red Leonard does prop humor. We're going to let you go and go. Look at your caller ID. It was George Santos, the GoFundMe cleared. Yeah. By the way, I was going to say, you must not be following the Santos playbook. I mean, you're taking the money that people gave you and giving it to the actual cause you said it was for? Yeah. What's that about? It's shocking. By the way, we had dinner with Malcolm and his girlfriend the other day. Wait a minute. I'm sure that was public. Terrible. I'm sure that is. Oh, the very chatty, doctor redland. All right, love you, doctor red lender. Thanks, Doc. By the way, Stephanie, one last thing. Yes. Carrot actually answered that phone call. Okay. And I don't want your listeners to think that I wouldn't be. This is doom. Do they just doom residents? All right, love you. Bye. Thank God. Wow. That's a lot, you hung up on Bill Gates and it was funny. Out of Aquaman's girlfriend. Wow. Wow. Well, we did, but I think we were told not to say anything. We should do is not say anything more about this. Wow Doctor red letter. It's the Gladys Kravitz of the Stephanie Miller show. Okay. 21 minutes after the hour. He's still there laughing. This portion of the show brought to you by Matt and crates. I'm on a ship with men every morning, basically. I'm telling you guys to go crazy.
Rep. Jim Jordan: Oversight Is Part of Our Constitutional Duty
"You know I get it I mean you're an elected member of Congress And you don't have to comment on this if you don't want to I understand but these scandals are all tied together here When you look at Russia and the impeachment hoax it's obvious to anyone looking at the facts and the data all backed up by documented activities here that the same players who were involved in the Russia hoax Dan Jones democracy integrity project fusion GPS were the same people involved with Soros groups in Ukraine who were the exact same people testifying against Trump and the impeachment hoax as Biden swirling away documents on Ukraine while his son is in Ukraine shuttling monies getting from Ukraine to Biden I mean there's some uncomfortable questions here that have to be asked about who exactly was working on behalf of a foreign government here Yeah I think you're putting it all together You're raising the right questions Those do need to be asked More importantly we need answers to them And frankly this is this whole oversight issue is it's part of our job It's part of our constitutional duty I think those questions you're pointing to are largely going to be handled through the oversight committee and chairman comer What we're concerned about is that the way the Justice Department has handled not just this classified document case but so many others I know you've had Cal seraphin on as a whistleblower who's come off of our office And we've had now Dan you were involved in law enforcement You know we've now had over two dozen FBI just come talk to us 2000 whistleblowers come talk to us Many of them have been retaliated against So our focus will in the district committee when it comes to our oversight duties will be on the double standard the unequal application of the law by the Justice Department and what these whistleblowers have brought forward and told us
Caller: George Santos Should Stay, But Study His Voting Track
"I think you should stay. I think we should watch his voting record and see if he really does. Follow through with the independent libertarian and conservative methodologies and opinions, I mean, there's not a newspaper or a politician that tells the truth. So what, if this guy got caught in his lies, oh, shame on you, slap his hands. Let's start looking at the campaign financing issue. Let's see the reports on every single Democrat. Who's accepted money from Soros? Right. Well, those are good questions. And again, I initially sort of agree with you on the other hand, I hear that, and I think, golly, is this what we're going to be reduced to? Is this everybody lies so we ought to just live with it?
"soros" Discussed on WGN Radio
"America at night with rich valdes. All right, America, welcome back. I am rich valve that's average valdes on all of the social media. And I'm looking at a quick search. I just put media news into the search engine and I see a several articles. One of them says, the media is going to be cutting jobs and that's jumping by more than 20% in 2022. That's according to a new study that came out. Then there's other stories about how the media is ignoring reporters questions about classified documents for a second time at The White House. And it seems to me that there's constantly a double standard in the media that I think we talk about often. But it seems that there's also a push to create a new narrative to push this new version of truth that is relevant to somebody, but not everybody. And my question is always, who are these boogeymen? Who are these bad guys? You know, years ago, they used to say it was the Koch brothers pushing the Republican agenda and for years we've heard the name George Soros. But I think there are others and it's not like he's given up, right? I think George Soros is doubling down. And thankfully we've got the media research center doing the amazing work that they do being a watchdog on the left wing media and the head of the media research center Brent bozales with us. Sprinkles are welcome, sir. Rich, how are you? Thank you for having me. Oh, it's my pleasure. Thanks for joining me live in late night. I know some people like to sleep at this time. I appreciate it. Thank you. Awesome. So let's talk a little bit about this because you guys do amazing work. Not only the tidbits that you put out on social media. That are funny and informative, but you do, you know, some more in depth stuff and lots of tracking of things. And I want to get a sense. I know you have some new pieces that have come out with respect to the money that's being sent into the media sphere to influence it and where it's coming from. So tell us about that. Well, when you think of George Charles, do you think of money and money going into leftist causes? And you should. This is the man who's reportedly put $18 billion into his open society foundation. Now, just so that people understand the perspective here. A foundation of that nature must, by law, spend at least 5% of its corpus every year. That folks is 900 million dollars minimum. The George Soros alone, not Mark Zuckerberg, not Warren Buffett, not kind of an opposite that super people out there. Just Soros, we're talking about $900 million alone. So if you look at his political giving in the last election cycle, surprise, surprise, the single largest donor to liberal democratic politicians and causes. But what we looked at was his nonprofit giving, which is in the literally in the billions of dollars worldwide, putting in a $1 billion into these universities is creating worldwide. But he's also touched something else. George Charles understands the power of media. And understands the power of communications. And he has opened up his checkbook. And he's writing checks. We have seen so far between 2016 and 2020. We've been able to identify 131 $1 million that George Soros has put into nonprofit media operations, both in the print media, on radio, television, social media, all trying to affect public opinion and at that big culture in America. That, by the way, is more money than is spent overthrow governments in Central America. This is remarkable to me. And again, it's not remarkable that some rich guys trying to influence media or influence politics that we see a lot. But to this degree, and I don't think it's that because he's got more money than everybody else, because quite frankly, I think you've seen Elon Musk by Twitter, and I don't think he's trying to control the narrative. I think he's trying to let free speech be the way he views free speech. But in Soros this case, it seems like he's doing everything he can to make sure that he's telling only one side of the story. And obviously getting the right people elected. And that third part is the most detrimental part is what I'm trying to say. So what do we do from here, Brent pozole? Well, no question about that. I would say he's the antithesis of Elon Musk in that Twitter to open Twitter to free expression. To ensure this is putting money in the media to affect public opinion. He has got a definitive liberal spend. Now, this guy. No, I saw an interview he gave in newsweek. Just a few years ago. He was asked, what his goal was? What is ultimate goal was? Rich if frightened to hear his answer. I want to change the arc of history. Think about that. Mad men do that sort of thing. And he doesn't mean by making history with his achievements. He's talking about changing the past. This man is a fanatical anti Christian piece of fanatical anti American. He's fanatical in how he hates the bedrock of this country. He's funding anything that undermines it. Whether it is Black Lives Matter, whether it's terrorist organizations. And I mean terrorist organizations and terrorist leaders. It is funding all manner of anti americanism. This guy wants America brought to its needs. And I mean that. I'm quite open when I say that and quite honest when I say that. When you look at every cause, a manageable. If you have rights in the city, you'll put a defense fund up. He will teach CRT. He will teach transgenderism. This man had there's not a leftist cause this man hasn't been able to. And when you've got $18 billion, you're putting into the process. That's the kind of thing you want to do. Yeah, this is crazy. And it's interesting because again, we've been hearing it for years and years and years at George Soros this and George Soros and it seems that he's just he's outsmarting everybody. He's trying to stop him. It's painful. It's not hard. But he's brilliant. That man is brilliant. Try to keep up with him in an interview sometime. I don't know where this man is is coming from. But I do know what he wants to do. And you have to dig deeply to find what he said. For example, who's ever heard of the global outlet called open democracy? Well, it's rather huge. It received one million $600,000 in a formal period among other things. It justified this outlet justified Palestinian terrorist rockets being fired into Israel as a quote necessary counter discourse to what it update quote colonial power in Israel. That's the agenda. That's the political gender of that group. I

Mike Benz and Sebastian Discuss a Seminal Moment in 2015
"Talk about this seminal moment Mike. This switch where everything turned inwards in 2015 or 2016. So I'll just out boulder eyes what you said and then I want you to fill in the colors to give us the flesh on the bone. So there's this thing that you talk about the foreign policy establishment that is bipartisan. It's kind of the uni party is bad and would call it. And they had a mission over years and perhaps decades working hand in glove with Soros foundations, the open society, the Ford foundation, Ned and others, where they were fighting for quote unquote democracy abroad, which meant targeting populists, the likes of Orban, the likes of probably Modi, they probably hated Modi, Nigel Farage, and so on. And then talk to us about that, what the foreign policy amoeba is, and then explained what they decided to do in 2015 and why. Right. So there was a saying in this country for a long time. I'm sure it still said, I just haven't heard it in a while. But that's that politics stops at the water's edge. This idea that Americans may have our disagreements about domestic policy, but when we look across the Atlantic or the Pacific, politics ends at home, we're always united on foreign policy. The so called Washington consensus on foreign policy that effectively existed from Truman until Trump. And more than just the unity on foreign policy, the other thing that phrase delineated was, if you're abroad, if you're the president, the Secretary of State or the defense minister, you don't slag off and criticize your opposition party at home. If you're a Republican in London, you don't say bad things about the Democrats that are domestic politics and likewise, if you're a Democrat president, you don't do that about Republicans. And to greater or lesser extent until recently, was in fact adhered to. Right. Right, now that's exactly right. You know, we are a world empire. We've been a world empire since 1898, essentially at the end of the Spanish-American War. The high standard of living that we have is partially a function of America creating much of the world in our image, so to speak, through our diplomatic and soft power influence projection during the 20th century.

"I mean, George Soros could best be described as a finance vampire. For how he made his money how he deploys it, if you go read the open society foundation website, I have it right here. You could go see their mission statement. You can see how they view the world. They say we work to build vibrant and inclusive democracies who governments are accountable to their people. Now, we've said very clearly on this program, democracy does not show up a single time in the United States Constitution. It does not show up in the declaration. And any time that it shows up in the federalist papers, it is negatively talked about. Hamilton Madison and Jay warned about the excesses of democracy. We are not a democracy. We should never be a democracy. Now, the media misrepresents what I say when I say that I say, well, what do you want? You don't want elections, though, of course, you want elections. We want consent to the governed, but we also want a check and a balance democracy at its core gets out of control because it plays into the excesses, the impulses, the desires of the urban mobs at the expense of the exurbs and the rules and the balance of society. George Soros has openly said he doesn't see any moral dimension. To the work he does in financial markets. He has dedicated anywhere between 18 to $21 billion to his open society foundation that allegedly can not impact any elections, but he does a lot of the soft work of legal work and the ACLU and all of that through the open society foundation. And you could check out the website itself. Their mission statement is right there. They talk about the democratic practice of expanding people's rights to vote. And one of the ads that ran repeatedly was this ad in cut 63. Now, I found these ads to be unconvincing, non persuasive, but I'm not a swing voter and many of you aren't as well. George Soros with a $125 million plus 50 plus the dark money, $200 million running ads like this like this, appealing to the suburban decency of, oh, are you going to accept the winner of the result?

"That's one person, so who is George Soros exactly? Well, George Soros is a foreign born multi billionaire. He also runs the open society foundation where he has dedicated $18 billion of his own money into the open society foundation. They argue for a borderless world for the dismantling of traditional policing structures for the decriminalization of drugs for the advancement of what they call LGBT issues. You can check it out. Open society foundation. George Soros wants to make the world in his image. I can best describe George Soros as a political pyromaniac. He's an arsonist. He wants to see western civilization, burned to the ground and remade in his image. Soros is originally from Hungary and he's also spent millions of dollars, by the way, trying to go after Victor Orban's government there. So billionaire George Soros spent 50 million in the fall, a 125 million back in January, and that does not count the dark money that we do not know that he deployed. He spent $14 million to the Senate majority pack, $5 million to the House majority pack $4 million to Stacey Abrams, 1.5 million to the Democrat party, Wisconsin, and $1 million to plant parenthood. Now Soros spreads his wealth around on top of that on a lot of other causes. He loves funding left wing, prosecutors, for example, in Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco. For the people that are unwilling to prosecute laws. You see, George Soros has a certain belief. This is how he justifies it to people and his inner circle. That might challenge him at a cocktail party or at a social event. They'll say, mister Soros, why is it that you're funding prosecutors that don't want to enforce the law? His belief is the following. He says, my family barely escaped the Nazis, which that history is rather murky and blurry. We're not going to get into that today. And it is the police that did that. And the police were the ones that were the Gestapo. They were the ones that were marching through the streets and the police are the menace of society. So we must decriminalize all laws. This is his calculus. I think it's very wrong. And I don't think he's even telling the truth. He just wants power. Soros has funded billions of dollars worth of elections over the last couple of years. What does George Soros believe exactly? Now that we look back on the midterms and we see political donor number one in all parties was mister Soros. What does he believe exactly? Well, George Soros has a very specific view of the world. When he's asked about whether or not he believes in God, he says no. In fact, he believes that God is a man made creation. And in 60 minutes, editorializes rather appropriately in this clip, play cut 62. So I had no sense of guilt. Are you religious? No. Do you believe in God? No. The Soros told us he believes God was created by men, not the other way around, which may be why he thinks he can smooth out the world's imperfections, believes he can smooth out the world's imperfections. He does not believe there is a God, but if there was a God, his name would be mister George Soros. One out of 5 Americans preside over a George Soros prosecutor. I'm sorry. One out of 5 Americans live under a George Soros prosecutor. Soros backed DAs represent one in 5 Americans. Two dozen progressive prosecutors are linked to George Soros money. So this foreign born billionaire who made his money shorting currencies, by the way. And effectively executing a currency bank run in the very famous early 1990s shorting the pound, he made his money on mass currency manipulation is now deploying his tens of billions of dollars in direct conflict with traditional American values. Now, many of you have probably heard the name George Soros, but it's very important that we focus on this because we are being lectured by Elizabeth Warren and many others. Like, it's not right for Elon Musk to buy Twitter and for a billionaire to call the shots, but it's perfectly fine for George Soros to deploy $200 million in a single election cycle. And an unknown amount to dark money groups, not to mention 18 $1 billion to charitable causes of his own liking under the open society foundation. And you know what else, George Soros funds? Rank choice voting. George Soros is a big fan of ranked choice voting, of which many Republicans across the country embrace gleefully, Alaska, Kelly shabaka would be a U.S. senator and we would have defeated Lisa Murkowski if it wasn't for ranked choice voting. They're bringing ranked choice voting to Nevada. It passed in a measure. They're bringing ranked choice voting in Utah. George Soros knows he could destroy the American conservative movement through a technical change called ranked choice voting..

We are going to talk about this inexplicable disgrace of a prisoner swap that Joe Biden just administered. But first, I want to take a step back and talk a little bit more about the midterms. The midterms were underwhelming. They were far closer than they should have been. We've said for a while, why is it that there is not a clarion call, a unified agreement to remove Republican Party leadership after an underwhelming result, University of Texas, their athletic department, they fired Tom Herman. He was a good football coach, but he was not a great football coach. He was supposed to be The Shining star of the University of Texas, Austin, football program, ended up not fire him and they bring in a new coach in sports losing is not tolerated and politics you are promoted. But there is an aspect of the midterms that I think is critical for us to talk about, which is who was financing all of those advertisements and Arizona was one after the other after the other, Carrie Lake is too extreme for Arizona Blake masters to extreme for Arizona. When I traveled to Pennsylvania, it was Doctor Oz is a menace to society. Who's the one that was writing the checks. Now part of it we do not know because they're through alleged dark money groups. Part of it, we do know. The largest donor in the midterm elections, and it really wasn't even close. It was George Soros. George Soros, according to Politico, spent nearly 200 $1 million. This midterm election cycle. Politico reports, George Soros in the 2020 campaign told what another $50 million in the fall alone. Billionaire George Soros, the biggest disclosed Democrat donor in the 2022 election cycle, gave another $50 million to a super PAC in the fall, building on an already large investment in Democrat groups in candidates. In 2024, democracy pack, which is as big vehicle, which served as one as Soros political spending vehicles since 2019, received another 8 figure cash infusion. Now that is on top of get this, a $125 million contribution by George Soros, back in January..

"As crime rates soar around the country, I'm happy to report that there is a powerful counter movement developing against the George Soros backed district attorneys who have enabled this crime wave to grow and gather momentum and cause havoc. Make life really miserable if not unlivable for many people in democratic cities. Now, Soros here is the puppeteer. I mean, this guy is, I don't know if I'd call him evil and carnet. But he's pretty close to it. I mean, there are very few people who could be called a spawn of Satan, but this guy comes fairly close. He's a malevolent figure. And as Debbie has mentioned on this podcast, he's a malevolent figure worldwide. He's causing harm, many places. I mean, think about a guy who puts tens of millions of dollars into district attorney races. Why? Basically, so you can get district attorneys who are on the side of the criminals. You have district attorneys who say things like let's abolish bail. Put the criminals right back on the street, defund the police. Decriminalize a whole bunch of offenses, so if you go into a store and loot the place, well, that's just going to be classified as a property crime, and therefore, quote, not serious, and therefore we're not going to really take much action. We're not even going to investigate, and if we do investigate, we're not going to, we're not going to go for serious penalties at all.

"Baxter And I'm to these Pellegrini Welcome to Bloomberg well with David Rubenstein part of our best temp Bloomberg series Now in this episode we hear from Don Fitzpatrick chief executive chief investment officer of Soros fund management And she says the fed waited too long and to act And she also talks about why it's important to be flexible about your investment goals and your rate of return And here is David with Fitzpatrick Starting with a look at the inner workings of the office of one of the world's most high profile investors Let's listen in What is it like to be the chief investment officer and chief executive officer for Soros fund management He's one of the most legendary investors of the 20th century And I guess maybe the 21st century to see call you every day and say do this through that Are you basically have the ability to make the decisions you want Well I literally just got off the phone with him So while George now spends the majority of his time on the foundations especially with everything that's going on geopolitically he's still watch his markets and there are things that catch his attention And he'll call and share views with me and I really kind of cherish those calls and value his input And working here is really a privilege We run just shy of $30 billion effectively for a single client which is the foundations that George started the open society foundations which are the largest private funder of human rights causes around the globe So especially in times like now with Ukraine they do a tremendous amount of really important work So it's a privilege to work here You've previously worked for publicly traded companies so is it easier to work for a private company or private family because you don't have to worry about the stock market every hour on the hour Absolutely That's where I spent 25 years at UBS before joining Soros fund management And they were great 25 years but they were very definitive constraints when you're working for a publicly traded company especially a really highly regulated bank And when I was there I ran the investment side of the asset management business We had thousands and thousands of clients and hundreds of different products that I oversaw So in that capacity there are real constraints in terms of what any given investment mandate is Versus here we really have a very very wide remit So how does the process work now at Soros fund management You're the CEO and the CIO So do you tell your team this is what we're going to do and they say yes we're going to do it or they come to you with ideas and you say maybe yes maybe no How does it work Yeah so we have a top down asset allocation So a general idea on where we want to be overall on our overall global equity exposure or fixed income exposure But then we have over a hundred internal investment team members and they all have investment mandates and they'll come to me so they have degrees of freedom within that mandate but very often there will be an idea they like for their mandate but instead of buying a 100 million they want to buy 500 million And that's when we have the conversation about whether it should be upsized And one of the things at SFM we can do is because we can invest across any asset class in almost any geography we can really connect dots and operate in the spaces in between where the typical asset management industry can go So George Soros is very famous for among other things saying if you're going to really good idea pursue it to the extreme In other words put a lot of money into something famously he did that when he helped break the British pound in 1992 I think it was So does he influence you in that way if you have a really good idea if somebody has a good idea you say we're going to put a lot of money in or you try to be risk adverse and not put too much any one thing When I came here 5 years ago George had not been involved day to day for a while and interesting the portfolio I inherited was over diversified And when you have an over diversified portfolio you're like guaranteed mediocracy So over the past 5 years we've really tried to streamline the portfolio And definitively one of the things we spent a lot of time on is making sure our best start ideas are right sized One of the interesting things though in the investment world is a lot of times and I'm sure you see this the best ideas there's a limit to how much you can actually buy The capacity of them is not infinite So usually that's the constraining factor is the sheer amount available So for the large amount you're managing let's say it's 30 billion or something like that Do you have to try to get a certain rate of return every year Do you have a benchmark So we want to earn 9% 10% 11% a year or whatever it might be higher than that perhaps What is your benchmark that you're trying to earn So the foundation this year the foundation will give away about $1.8 billion So we like to make enough money to fund their good work But I would say when it comes to targeting a return it can be a little bit dangerous because your opportunity set is not always equal And if you target a fixed return you'll take too little risk when the opportunity set is.

"In the meantime, I want to report on this story. You know that the president had promised that he would appoint a female and a black female at that to the Supreme Court. According to a new survey at a Rasmussen, Americans expect them to do that 59% of Americans expect them to do that. But they're not really happy about it. And I'll tell you whether or not that happy about it. Because since when did your gender or your race matter more than your intellect and your capability? This is still the United States of America. And I realize in this woke movement that's in part funded by the likes of super pacs from billionaires that want to spend a $125 million on 2022. This is the problem, right? You've got all this money that's force feeding a set of values and so then it becomes all about your race, your gender, as opposed to your capability, your intellect, et cetera. And so Americans don't like this. Everyday Americans are like, but wait a second. None of that should matter, right? Going back to the words of Martin Luther King Jr., we really should be a colorblind society. We don't want to see race or gender first. We want to see who someone is as a person and yet it's like all you can see because they're making it that way so much that the person that's going to be appointed to the Supreme Court has to be female and has to be black.

By the way there's there's news today that the taliban has announced they are going to impose sharia log in there for me to government. They're breaking the promises surprise on how they were gonna four of the government. It's not working well for them not working well at all for the bite administration's working great for the taliban not for the by administration More and more reports are coming out of americans left behind. Who tried to get out. The taliban now is preventing Aircraft from leaving with people who want to evacuate and there's nothing the bite administration can do about it and into comes the issue of what to do with china. China is becoming a problem. Globally for the western world and a number of countries who assumed the united states would have their back do not have their back realized the. Us doesn't have their back and it's become an problematic in companies and countries are scrambling and now george soros is stepping up. I gotta tell ya. I'm a little bit surprised that george soros would be so vocal about this. In of all places the opinion section of the wall street journal not exactly a progressive bastion. And yet i agree with george soros and win. I agree with george soros and the wall street journal editorial page agrees with george soros. You probably ought to pay attention to george soros. And he's calling out black rock an american asset manager. Listen to this blackrock. The world's largest asset manager has begun a major initiative in china on august thirtieth it launched a set of mutual funds and other investment products for chinese consumers. The new york based firm is the first foreign owned company allowed to do so. The launch came just weeks after black rock recommended that investors triple their allocations in chinese assets. This will push billions of dollars into china. The chinese market represents a significant opportunity to help the long-term goals of investors in china and internationally. Black rock chairman. Larry fink wrote in a letter to shareholders. Black rock takes its responsibilities for its clients. Money seriously and is a leader in environmental social and government governance movement. But it appears to misunderstand. president xi jinping 's china the firm seems to have taken the statements of mr she rougerie regime at face value. It has drawn a distinction between state owned enterprises and privately owned companies but that is far from reality. The regime regards. Chinese companies is instruments of the one party state. The possible misunderstanding could explain black rocks decision but there may be another explanation. The profits to be earned from entering china's heretofore closed. Financial markets may have influenced that decision. The black rock managers must be aware that there is an enormous crisis bruin and china's real estate market. They may believe that. Investment funds flowed into. China will help mr she. Trent handle the situation. But the president's problems go much deeper. China's birth rate is much lower than official statistics indicated. Mr she a tips to increase. It have made worse. The president recently launched common prosperity program. Which is a fundamental change in direction at seeks to reduce inequality by distributing the wealth of the rich to the general population. That does not augur well for foreign investors pouring billions of dollars into china..

"'n you suckers on the left fell for this that's hilarious. How don't be you are to have felt for. The kalinic was beloved. by the obama administration. He was a source. You see the paperwork. The obama's state department use kalinic. They loved them. And yet the minute kalinic tells. John solomon hey that stuff. The fbi's using the prosecute trump's campaign manager manafort that black ledgers fake. All of a sudden clinics dangerous russian agent really really odd coincidence isn't it. isn't that strange of course. Not philip pump. Others are just total. Suckers agree with some of the comments. I they're not really suckers run on the whole thing mean what's the other argument. You're either really dumb and you missed all of this or two. You're not really which i don't think you are. You know it and you just choose to ignore it to cover up for you for your home east there now. How important was the black ledger. That kalinic the bunk and that george soros escalle backed up. Well let's go to quick screenshot number three from the solomon piece. That's why solomon has to go away folks three months later. The fbi went further and arguing probable cause for a search warrant for manafort's bank records citing specific news article about the black leger as evidence. Manafort was paid to perform. Us lobbying work for the ukrainians. Wow that's the exact same charge china. Get giuliani on it. And we're supposed to believe them. That's what they said. Serving the search warrant giuliani's he was paid to do lobbying work for the ukrainians. That's really i mean. What a mind bender that. They tried the same thing on metaphor except the documents. They used to charge metaphor with the exact same crime. Air coins fake or the documents are using to try and charge giuliani. I doubt it. I have zero absolutely zero faith in these people. Believe this story gets even better so sir halo sankoh. Who is the ukrainian lawmaker. Who passed the fake black ledger or is alleged to have passed the fake black ledger to people in the fbi. The fbi uses the fake documents to prosecute manafort. Shaneco has got an interesting history too. So i just wanna run over my my cable here. The got a fascinating history to exposed by the great chuck. Ross the daily caller remember. Nelly your wife or bruiser higher up in the obama justice department. It's really convenient. That bruce wife nellie or worked for fusion. Gps that put together the fake. Dossier trump the correlate to the ledger. Here's nelly or nellie your said and testimony that her source for the information she was putting together that fusion put together to the dossier and elsewhere her source was that ukrainian lawmaker. Who is that. ukrainian lawmaker. Who she claims was their source. Lushenko that is it but now your said this under oath she says her source with sir. Hamish shaneco the same guy. Doria soros's cow backed up when he produced the fake blackledge. This is like a spy novel for idiots. The fear if your i q is about an eighty seven. This would be a spy novel. You right the problem is you. Can't make this stuff up because if you did make it up if you made this up and put it in a book you would be like. This is a really stupid spy story because all these people sound like it's they didn't cover their tracks at all. So the same. Ukrainian lawmaker who produce a fake document. Manafort is alleged to have been working with the company connected to the us justice department nearly or that produced another fake document called the dossier. Why didn't they cover their tracks. The answer is they didn't think they needed to. They thought hillary clinton was going to win. In twenty sixteen. Th this would all go away. That's why it's the spy story for idiots if you wrote the story it was all fake people reading. These are real morons horrendous case what a bunch of dopes it gets better. I got another interesting angle for this. Let me get to my third sponsor here today. Brickhouse nutrition ladies gentlemen here. It is stuff is gold. I gave gi some of this swears by. He says it tastes great though. Not kidding had this conversation before the show. And i'm messing with their brickhouse nutrition to have exciting news to share feel the greens is now available and lemon lime. Lemon yet is this is brand new. I usually show you the one. I already drank lemon lime field degrees. Unlike other superfoods it uses real. Usda organic fruits and vegetables. It's packed with anti-oxidants can support heart. Health metabolism blood pressure digestion. Plus pre and probiotics. Here's the which really special about this. Listen folks we all know. You should be eating your fruits and vegetables right. Does anybody know that you all know that. You're all super smart. But why don't we do it the hard to prepare. You're gonna go shopping form. Some of us aren't good cokes. Like me i'm terrible. My wife's a great cook which is awesome but this is different. Notice the back of the label. It says nutrition facts like okay so what you know what. It doesn't say supplement facts because this is.

"Mysteriously out of ukraine appears this black ledger. Alleging trump's campaign guy who's getting off the record payments totaling millions of dollars. The fbi uses it to go after it. After manafort and prosecute manafort. The black ledger turns out. We find out later. The black ledgers fake. I'll get to that in a second. But who immediately jumps to defend the guy. George soros is all buddy. Dari kalani acc from anti who jumps right in to defend the black ledger. It shows how the dirty money works in ukraine. So who exposed the black ledger. That colonial seemed to defend and this guy. Lewis shaneco ukraine produce. Who exposed it and what exactly the scandal but the folks. I don't think you understand how important the black ledger was. All you've heard about many of you as the dossier remember the dossier used to prosecute trump. I would make the case that the dossier the black ledger was just as important as the dossier for setting up the fake russia hoax and who agrees with me. Who exposed the black ledger. Our man john solomon at the hill makes sense now why the f. b. is reintroducing the russia hoax stuff going after solomon giuliani. I think they're really afraid. John durham knows this and this is all going to come out. Here's an article by the hill. I encourage you to check out again. John salomon from twenty nine thousand nine. The fbi was warned early and often that the manafort file the ledger might be fake but they used it. Anyway dan are you suggesting to me that the fbi prosecuted paul manafort based on a fake document. That's exactly what i'm suggesting to you. It's all in my book. Laid out laid out here from the john. Solomon piece in search warrant affidavits the f. b. i. Portrayed the black leger. As one reason it resurrected a criminal case against manafort that was dropped in two thousand fourteen and needed search warrants in two thousand seventeen for bank records to prove he worked for the russia back party of regions in ukraine. There's just one problem the fbi. Public reliance on the ledger came months after the feds were warned warned repeatedly that the document couldn't be trusted and likely was a fake according to documents and more than dozen interviews with knowledgeable sources it was a fake but soros's gal doria colonia doesn't appear to think it's a fake. She's back in the guy up who produced it soros group you know and ukraine appeared on a do not prosecute lists from our embassy. You better leave them alone. The obama biden embassy over there in ukraine. Don't you prosecute sources group so the fbi knew was a fake and they went and investigated anyway. Now this is where the story gets crazy. Remember my book. Follow the monday. They all know each other. Sorry to keep mentioning book. I've really i promise. I'm not trying to go to a library and get it. It's really not about the money. Don't follow the money to me. It is about the prisoner is all in their. These people all know each other they were all connected follow. The money trail not only was the. Fbi warned that the black ledger they used to prosecute metaphor was a fake. Someone else told them. It was a fake to whose reputation that of course needs to be destroyed. Pay very close attention to this screenshot here from john. Solomon's piece quote likewise manafort's ukrainian business partner constantine kalinic a regular informer for the state department. Told the us government. Almost immediately after the new york times wrote about the ledger in august of two thousand. Sixteen that the document was probably a fait goes on. Metaphor quote could not have possibly take large amounts of cash across three borders. It was always a different arrangement. Payments were made in wire transfers to his companies which is not a violation. Kalinic wrote an email to a senior. Us official on august twenty. Second twenty sixteen folks. This stuff is too good. This stuff is good so again. Ukrainian politician produces black ledger. Soros's gal says yeah. Yeah yeah backs it up. This is real. This is evidence here. We're good sources gal backs up. Colonia great a source for the obama state department constantly. Kalinic says now. That's not real that blackledge. You guys are using bogus documents. The prescott afford and then kalinic. Who's a source for the obama's state department after he says that gets accused of being a russian agent dealing with paul.

"Thanks simply safe again folks. I always appreciate your patience. Thank you very much. Keep the show free. There have been sponsors okay. This all connected soros the fact that they want to silence rudy and john solomon from talking about it and keeping the george soros links. All quiet always. Well let's go back yesterday. Segment from my book. Follow the money. Thank you all that. I told you that. The first chapter of the book explains all this footnoted. Many of you want to buy yesterday. I think we hit something like thousand. Two thousand copies sold which is insane. Considering the book's been out forever but yeah my book follow. The money covers all of this stuff. Here's a little excerpt. So there's a group in ukraine. Where rudy giuliani. John solomon had shown an interest in some of the corruption. The obama administration and biden administration hadn't ukraine. There's a group in ukraine. This group anpac. It's what i've been mentioning now for three days. Keep this in a tattoo this on your brain which was run by a woman named daria colonia. This group anpac was funded by george. Soros groups right. So here's an excerpt from my book. Where i get into this. Says it says amtrak is run by doria an american educated lawyer. She has been as you might expect an outspoken defender of her organization. She talks about all the funding. Here you can see this. I read this yesterday and it talks about how the big funders for an attack. This group anti see are the. Us government there. It is right there number. One and george soros organizations they fund this group in ukraine this group in ukraine and anpac run by doria colonial was on this do not prosecute lists the. Us embassy did not want them looking in the ukrainian authorities into this group. Anti why we were injecting ourselves into a ukrainian local law enforcement matter. Maybe because it was a george soros funded group in the obama administration didn't want the ukrainians look into that. Who knows weird right so now we know who doria colonial guess we know how she's connected the soros she runs. Screw anti see and the funded by you guys. Ladies remember the black ledger out of ukraine and remember operated in ukraine. Get a load this. The black ledger may give you a little background. I'm going to get this new york times story sense. The black ledger was this shady looking spreadsheet that appeared seemingly out of nowhere was given to the fbi and the black ledger showed alleged payments to paul manafort trump's campaign manager that were cash payments off the record. It was like an off the books kind of transaction. This wound up making. Its way this black ledger into the fbi is hands. It was used by the fbi to investigate paul manafort. There is a big problem with the black ledger. However before we get to the problem and by the way who uncovered the problem with the black ledger you who do you think. Uncovering the problem with the blackledge. Who do you think is they're targeting. Oh john solomon yes weird right. How now john solomon's a target crazy. Let's go to the new york times a little background on the black ledger. That was used to prosecute paul manafort. Here's an article by andrew kramer. Mike macintyre barry mayor new york times from two thousand sixteen secret ledger in ukraine list cash. Donald trump's campaign all my god. Donald trump's can't page. This is crazy pills time. Donald trump's campaign chief was being paid in cash by the ukrainians. This is really really bad stuff. That sounds bad. Doesn't go to screenshot number one. So who produced the black ledger. Where did this come from. Black ledger given to the fbi. Showing these suspicious surreptitious payments that trump's campaign manager in cash from ukraine who produced it. Give my voices from the new york times for the leftist ready to scream africa. Baresi theory tell it to the new york times. So here's to produce the back. Ledger quote the accounting records. We're talking about the ledger. Surface this year winstar. Halos shangqiu remember that name a member of parliament. Who said he had received a partial copy from a source. He did not identify published line items covering six months of outlays in two thousand twelve totalling. Sixty six million dollars in an interview. Mr lukashenko said another source had provided the entire multi-year black ledger to victor tree. Pack a former deputy director of the domestic intelligence agency of ukraine the. Sba you who passed it. Onto the national anti corruption bureau connected the soros and doria colonia colonia coup worked for soros-funded group and ukraine black ledger emanates from ukraine produced. By a guy named sir. Hey lushenko who and mmediately jumps to sir halo. Schenk owes defense about the black ledger. That john solomon rudy. Giuliani's buddy was investigating you. John was like. I'm not so sure this black ledger. Using investigate manafort israel who were media jumps to the defense of sir halo shaneco who produced the black ledger. Let's just go back to the new york times. Here's a quote. It's a very vivid example of how political parties are financed in ukraine said daria and colletti the executive director of the anti corruption action center in kiev. It represents the very dirty cash economy in ukraine. So let me. Let's just tie that portion up there for a minute again. Maybe philip bump do some homework from the washington post. Show the new york times. We'll be digging into the story so darya kalani who runs anti see this group in ukraine where there's a whole bunch of suspicious obama biden activity going on can watch yesterday show for all the details on that kalanick runs this soros-funded group.
