Soros vs. American Courts

The network:

Soros, Soros’ organizations, Liberals, President Obama, Van Jones, 99 percenters, and now, the courts.

As conservatives have had more success against the left in judicial elections, one of the main thrusts of the Open Society[1] campaign has been to replace the election of judges with the so-called “merit” selection system. Under merit selection, the power to choose judges is taken away from the people and handed over to a small committee typically dominated by state bar associations, trial lawyers and other legal special interests.

The American Prospect [2] teaches us something very useful about the political strategy the left has adopted to shape America’s courts. Rather than arguing openly for the kind of liberal judges it prefers, the left is spending tens of millions of dollars in an attempt to remove ordinary people and their elected representatives from the process of choosing judges. Concern about special-interest influence, hand-wringing about politicized judicial races and proposals to adopt merit selection are all ruses to create activist courts the people would never choose on their own.

Obama’s October revolution

Occupy Wall Street seeks to demonize big banks, large corporations and capitalism. Its goal is to overturn America’s economic structure.

The protesters are calling for wealth redistribution, fees on bank profits and massive tax increases on the rich. Many are demanding a socialist revolution - the confiscation of private property and nationalization of the economy. They are the heirs of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Lenin. Their aim is to impose the hammer and sickle upon America.

Mr. Obama has said he “sympathizes” with the protesters - especially their anger at Wall Street and “fat-cat” bankers. For years, he has demonized billionaires and millionaires, jet owners and corporate America. His divisive, irresponsible rhetoric has laid the groundwork for Occupy Wall Street.

The White House connection is even deeper. The protest’s main players all have ties to the Obama administration. Its primary organizer is former Obama “green-jobs czar” Van Jones. Mr. Jones is a self-avowed communist and follower of Saul Alinsky, the radical community organizer who also was Mr. Obama’s intellectual mentor. Mr. Jones said October is the month of the long-awaited “progressive offensive” - the watershed moment when students, labor unions, socialists and civil rights activists coalesce into an anti-Tea Party to blunt Middle America’s growing opposition to Mr. Obama.

Occupy Wall Street also is being supported by MoveOn.org. The group was one of the first to back Mr. Obama’s presidential candidacy when he was still an obscure senator from Illinois. The protests are being funded by socialist billionaire George Soros - a key Obama ally. And the protesters are being joined by big labor, the administration’s most powerful constituency.

Hence, Occupy Wall Street is not a spontaneous uprising of disenchanted citizens frustrated with corporate plutocracy and capitalist excess. Rather, it is a planned, manufactured attempt to prop up Mr. Obama’s failed presidency. It is a page taken straight from the Alinsky playbook: Demonize bankers and businessmen in order to divert attention from the real source of our economic woes, Mr. Obama’s policies.

The key for the hard left was to take advantage of our misery to seize power and impose a socialist regime. By sowing street mayhem, Occupy Wall Street is hoping to demoralize and distract Middle America into believing big business is the evil culprit for the financial collapse.

The protesters are not interested in real solutions. They are political activists masquerading as concerned citizens. Progressives are desperate to keep Mr. Obama in office. This is why the president is deliberately encouraging Occupy Wall Street. He hopes to create enough bedlam and then target Republicans, the Tea Party and the rich. Source

President Obama knew that the “jobs bill” wouldn’t pass. He planned to ridicule Republicans before he ever came up with the “jobs bill”. The “jobs bill” is not about jobs. It is about a strategy to ridicule Republicans.

At the same time Van Jones started his October Fall. The Wall Street protests started. Their supporters are Soros, Soros’ organizations, Van Jones, unions, and leftist radicals, such as Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky, have endorsed the anti-capitalist movement. Source

It is: Capitalism vs. Marxism. May the best system win.
