To the editor:
The first shots in the Obama revolution, the highly unlikely campaign that elevated an inexperienced former Chicago community organizer (read communist agitator), who I believe was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia, into the Oval Office, were fired at the Southampton beach house of billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros.
Soros is one of the wealthiest men on the planet, with a personal fortune of at least $7 billion and additional investments of another $11 billion or so. His collaborative group of pro-left foundations distributes more than $400 million a year to causes ranging from underwriting left-leaning Democrat Party candidates to legalizing marijuana to advocating for euthanasia.
Soros gave birth to a much more ominous cause, the "shadow party." The shadow party would eventually become the Obama administration, and Soros would become the master puppeteer for the president of the United States and the leader of the free world.
Without Soros and the shadow party, Barack Hussein Obama would be, at best, a senator from Illinois attending social gatherings with domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and sitting in the pews of black liberation theologist the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. At worst, he'd be an unremarkable and unheard of state senator. Instead, Obama is the president of the United States - most likely illegally.
The personal relationship between Soros and Obama goes back at least as far as June 2004, when the Soros hosted a fundraiser for Obama's U.S. Senate campaign at his New York home. Soros' and the left's "chosen one," Obama, was successfully elected to the U.S. Senate. And, after the failure of their efforts to oust George Bush in 2004, Soros convened another secretive meeting of 70 like-minded and wealthy donors in Scottsdale, Ariz., to take a look at what had gone wrong and to develop a plan for the future. This meeting would eventually be called the "Phoenix Group" and, in the end, Obama would be the benefactor of the efforts that would emerge from this confab.
In December 2006, as Obama was contemplating a run for the White House, Soros and Obama met to discuss the young senator's political ambitions. In a matter of a few weeks, on Jan. 16, 2007, Obama announced he was establishing a presidential exploratory committee, although, at that point, he'd logged a total of only 143 days in service as a U.S. senator. "I recognize that there is a certain presumptuousness in this, a certain audacity to this announcement," Obama would concede.
Literally hours after the announcement, Soros sent Obama the maximum individual contribution allowed by campaign finance law. Later that week, Soros announced that he would be supporting the candidacy of Obama instead of Hillary Clinton, the candidate he'd previously supported. In an interview he conducted with Judy Woodruff in May 2008, Soros was prophetic, gushing "Obama has the charisma and the vision to radically reorient America in the world," and added "this emphasis on experience is way overdone."
Like the Manchurian Candidate, Obama is the Soros candidate.
