I’ll Take Manhattan, the Bronx and Brazil too…

What follows is part of a press release from the office of the Governor of the State of New York which was issued on August 11, 2009:


Open Society Institute and State and Federal Governments Create $175 Million Public-Private Partnership to Help Low-Income Families Prepare for the School Year

Governor David A. Paterson today announced a historic collaboration with George Soros and the Open Society Institute (OSI) that will provide one-time, $200 grants to more than 800,000 children in low-income families across New York State to help purchase school supplies as they prepare to return to class in September. Families who receive public assistance or food stamps can access this one-time Back-To-School Supplement of $200 per school-aged child (ages 3 through 17) starting today. The Governor was joined by Mr. Soros and other elected officials at P.S. 208 in New York City today to make the announcement.

OSI committed $35 million from its Foundation to Promote Open Society to the State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA), which oversees programs for low-income families. That commitment triggered the availability of an additional $140 million in federal funding through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) emergency contingency fund that was established under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) earlier this year.

“This first-of-its-kind partnership in New York is an example of how the public and private sectors can work together to foster a brighter future for the low-income families of our State,” Governor Paterson said. “These $200 grants will provide thousands of families with a much needed financial boost so that they can better meet the needs of their children as they prepare to go back to school. This partnership is a continuation of my commitment to aggressively identifying opportunities to use economic stimulus funds to help our neediest New Yorkers and to bolster our State’s economy.”

Mr. Soros said: “Even in the toughest of economic times, getting ready for school is important. When I was a student right after World War II, I had no money. I received cash from charities and I remember how important that was to my education. Since then, I have been very fortunate, so I am happy I’ve been given the opportunity today to help others. I hope these funds will relieve some of the financial burden on New York’s families so their children can start the school year off with a measure of optimism and hope for the future.”

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said: “Over the past year in New York City, we’ve attacked the national recession by doing more than ever to connect New Yorkers to employment, job training and the critical financial supports they need. Governor Paterson and I agree that New York’s brightest days are still ahead of us and we will continue to work hard for those in need. George Soros’ generous gift – combined with federal funding – will not only provide welcome assistance as kids head back to school but will also pump money into our local economy at a time when we need it most.”

The press release was followed by a few choice words from influential New Yorkers such as U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten E. Gillibrand, Congressmen Charles Rangel, Gregory Meeks, Edolphus “Ed” Towns, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and other local and state politicians. They all said basically the same things using the same politically correct talking points and offering praise to George Soros and his Open Society Institute (OSI).

Upon first reading, having seen what I have to this point of the underhanded dealings of George Soros and knowing how his liberal organizations are playing on the sentiments of the people of the United States, I said to myself, “Way to go, George. You’ve successfully bought one of the last pieces of the State of New York that you didn’t already own.”

George Soros and his OSI have funded more than merely school supplies for a few select New York children.

Then came the announcement that George Soros had put $811 million into a hedge fund which bought a stake in the Brazilian oil company Petrobras Brasileiro SA. Petrobras is now the largest holding in the Soros Investment Fund LLC constituting 22 percent of the $3.58 billion investment. Interestingly, a 28 percent slump has been seen in Petrobras by the investment community since then.

Not only has George Soros bought and paid for New York, he now owns most of Brazil as well.

Next was Obama’s rather timely announcement that the United States is going to fund Brazil’s off-shore drilling operations with $2 million American tax-payer dollars.

What’s wrong with THIS picture?  Is it just me or does this sound like insider trading to anyone else?

In conversation with a friend recently, she asked me if I knew anything about “collective advancement.” I didn’t so I took a chance with a simple AOL search and found more references than I wanted.

First, there was the MIT document titled “Opening Up Education (The Collective Advancement of Education through Open Technology, Open Content, and Open Knowledge). “ I am all for improving the education of our children, so I didn’t delve too deeply into this reference.

I read through the remainder of the first page of my simple search and saw a name I recognize: The Carnegie Foundation.

The second entry on the second page of my search caught my eye. “Political Engagement, a Necessary Step for Collective Advancement”.

Perhaps the most telling of the links found on my search was the one for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development or OECD and its role in the United Nations sponsored Millennium Project.  This is a George Soros funded project through OSI.

It appears that Soros has gone full circle. From education to oil back to education with all sorts of nefarious dealings in between. Are there still Americans out there who honestly believe that Obama is “his own man?”

During the 2008 Presidential election the Soros family, including ex-wife Annaliese, are listed with as accounting for personal donataions of at least $712,211 (excluding any cash donations which may or may not have been given) to various Democrat Party Organizations and candidates. In case you’re wondering, I didn’t research the donations any further than this. Even this much money astounds me. It would take me 65 years to earn this much money at the current rate of my Social Security check!

Obama’s puppetmaster, George Soros, is spending money in what at the least gives the impression of insider trading, donating enormous sums of money through his primary front organization to appear charitible to the outside world, and using every member of his family to make donations to his choice of presidential contenders.

 Add into this mix the knowledge that George Soros believes in euthansia and eugenics so we must assume that Obama does as well. It is a given that his top advisors, the Emanuel brothers, do. Ezekial Emanuel has said that the savings for physician assisted suicide and euthanasia would be an estimated $627 million.

He was quoted in the Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008 (must be a subscriber to see):

“Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others.”

The NY Post quotes him in an August 17, 2009 article by Betsy McCaughey as believing that medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled based on the lack of ability of the disabled as participating citizens in their communities.

With “friends” like these, do the American people really need enemies?
