Soros Fingerprints All Over Anti-Trump Lawsuits

From – lifezette.com – By Fred Lucas

Billionaire leftist teams up with Democrat attorneys general to bury administration in legal challenges

More than a dozen lawsuits and counting have been filed against President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily blocks visas from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen. Looking beyond the handful of emotional personal stories that are gaining the media’s sympathy, there is a more predictable political power dynamic at play. The lawsuits largely stem from organizations bankrolled by billionaire leftist George Soros and Democratic state attorneys general.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has carried out a political vendetta against Trump, led 15 other state attorneys general in a joint statement condemning what they called an “unconstitutional, un-American and unlawful executive order.” The Democratic AGs also said, “Religious liberty has been, and always will be, a bedrock principle of our country and no president can change that truth,” a curious statement from the party that targeted the Little Sisters of the Poor.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep U.S. ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America … Soros has said he wants to bring America down.”

Last August, George Soros’ son, Alex Soros, posted a picture of himself with Schneiderman on Instagram, and wrote, “Great to meet with #newyork attorney general @ericschneiderman who recognized that @realdonaldtrump was a fraud way before many and has courageously taken him on!”

Schneiderman, as well as Democratic attorneys general in Virginia and Massachusetts, intervened in existing lawsuits. The lawsuit brought by Washington State Attorney General Robert Ferguson has achieved the most success, bringing the case that blocked the order nationwide.

The lawsuit convinced a federal judge of the state’s standing on the claim the order is “separating Washington families, harming thousands of Washington residents, damaging Washington’s economy, hurting Washington-based companies and undermining Washington’s sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees.”

Democrats are even raising money off the lawsuits. In a Facebook post, the Democratic Attorneys General Association said, “Stand with Attorney General Bob Ferguson and all Democratic State Attorneys General fighting for what’s right!” It added, “Chip in to support Democratic AGs fighting for progressive rights and freedoms.”

Outside of the politicians, Soros’ Open Society Foundations, which advocates for open borders, is financing several advocacy groups that initiated litigation against the order.

Leading the way in these lawsuits in several states is the American Civil Liberties Union, which has gotten at least $35.5 million from the Open Society Foundations, according to the Capital Research Center, a Washington think tank that investigates nonprofits.

Soros also gave $4.6 million to the National Immigration Law Center, which has been involved in litigation, according to the CRC; and $621,000 to the Urban Justice Center, which has an appendage known as the International Refugee Assistance Project that has jumped into the lawsuits, according to the CRC.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep U.S. ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America,” Matthew Vadum, senior vice president of the CRC, told LifeZette. “Soros has said he wants to bring America down. Flooding the country with Muslim aliens who won’t assimilate is one way to do that.”

In a Seattle suit, separate from the Washington State case, ABC News reported the American Immigration Council, the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild filed a class action complaint on behalf of lawful permanent residents that want their immediate family members that are citizens of the seven countries be able to enter the United States.

Soros’ Open Society Foundations gave $425,000 to the American Immigration Council from 2011 through 2013, according to the CRC, which shows Soros’ group also gave at least $50,000 to the National Lawyers Guild.

The fact that a lawsuit is politically motivated doesn’t mean it lacks legal merits. Republican attorneys general and conservative groups challenged the Obama administration’s executive actions. But as the media plays up emotional stories, no one should try to divorce politics from these legal maneuvers.

He and his sons deserve to be indicted for sedition, fined heavily, imprisoned, and, since he broke his citizenship oath by plotting against the U.S. government, to have his U.S. citizenship removed and extradited to Hungary where his other citizenship (he has dual citizenship) is from. Hungary I believe has a warrant out for him, as does Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Czech Republic, and France.

Arrest him for inciting a riot and for treason!

When Glenn Beck had his TV Show on Fox he used to talk about the progressives – namely George Soros, Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, etc.
I did not understand at that time what he meant about these people being dangerous to America. I do now, after Valerie Jarrett being
advisor to Obama, George Soros and Van Jones all involved with Obama and their far leftist views. The view of these leftists was definitely
to change America but ultimately destroy America as we know it. I have no doubt that Soros has fueled the lawsuits against the President and his Administration. It is too bad all of them can’t be deported because they are a cancer in this country.

Why can’t this country do something about Soros–he has said he wants to bring down the USA–he is inciting riots–this man is evil to the core–there are several things he has done to instigate him being tried for treason–someone go get him

Hen3ry H

The Libs & Dems always seem to be out to demonize the “Rich”
But yet they cater to George Soros
Go figure
Must be a power/control thing. Because they’re in the process of destroying Our Bill of Rights
There oughta be a law to deal with this guy.

He is a piece of DRECK!

And, according to a Breitbart article, a larger number of RHINO republicans received donations from Soros and/or one of his owned businesses. Soros targeted anti-Trump RINOS. Ryan, McCain, Graham, and others. The article was on Drudge 2/6 but I could not find it today 2/7–perhaps the recipients of Soros money shut it down?????? This really pisses me off!

Somehow George Soros and sons and minions have got to go. The Democrat Party has absolutely sunk to a new low to allow Soros to run their organization.

What has Soros to gain if America goes down? Why does he hate America so much. He’s a billionaire, what’s his purpose? It all seems senseless. And, yes, he should be arrested if he’s broken any laws. His American citizenship should be revoked; he certainly doesn’t deserve it. This is the best country in the world, that’s why so many immigrants, like my parents, came here. Freedom is wonderful and maybe that’s what he finds so repulsive. Free people; yes, we are dangerous! Get out of our country and stay out. WE DON’T WANT YOU.

Soros is a cancer in America and should be dealt with aggressively.

John

Read where George Soros has contributed $$ to John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Carlos Cabrerro, & Speaker Paul Ryan. ! Is this ‘fact or fake news’ ? Anyone know how valid this is ?
IMO, Soros is using a great deal of his billions to the destruction of our Republic from “WITHIN”.!

Why would Soros want all these immigrants or refugees here when probably most of them are muslims and could have terrorists among them. He is a mean evil man

Jim

George Soros as a boy helped the Natzis rounding up the Jews even though he was of Jewish heritage, and he has no guilt from that time! He is a man who does whatever it takes to make himself wealthy, which is why his investment firm is outside the United States. As George said no SEC problems!!

Felix Guerrera

MY LAST COMMENT TO SAVE THIS NATION WAS CONFISTCATED ! wHEN THINGS OF IMPORTANCE ARE BROUGHT TO TRUTH TO THE PUBLIC , IT IS QUICKLY REMOVED FROM THE SIGHT OF THE PUBLIC ! iT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ALL WEB SITES RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CRIMINAL ACT AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR THE VIOLATION OF DESTUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ! MANY WEB SITES HAVE RECEIVED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS BY OUTRIGHT STEALING OF THE CONVERSATIONS AND WORDS FROM THE PEOPLE ! YOU KNOW WHO YOU AND THEY ARE ! jUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE YOU OR THEY STUMBLE !

Terry

McConnell and Ryan are the real cancer. They are blocking Trumps agenda for their own gain. Soros is just a pesty nat that should be crushed.

How can George Soros be stopped? Are not his financial backings of rioting groups and purposeful disruptions of the United States government not a crime? If not, then it might be time we play fire with fire and take him out in another manner?

Let’s bring Snowden home and give him the means to hack into the Soros enterprises. He could wipe them out and destroy their power!
