Money and hatred are both great motivators.
However, when you have both, it can create one huge spider’s web of corruption.
FoxNews.com reports that
Congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, blasted President Donald Trump’s criticisms of him, telling CNN that the White House chief of staff should “give him a time-out.”
Schiff (D-Calif.) suggested to anchor Jim Sciutto that Gen. John Kelly give Trump the childhood reprimand after the president tweeted that Schiff “must be stopped” from allegedly leaking information from sensitive committee hearings.
“Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with [former FBI Director Jim] Comey, [Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark] Warner, [former CIA Director John] Brennan and [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper! Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!” the president tweeted Monday.
Schiff, of Burbank, said on Sunday that by pushing for the release of the FISA memo, Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ (R-Calif.) goal was to “undermine the FBI, discredit the FBI, and do the president’s bidding.”
Nunes later responded on Fox News Channel, saying Democrats like Schiff keep trying to incriminate Trump in regard to Russian collusion, but keep “coming up with goose eggs.”
Speaking with Sciutto, Schiff said Trump’s tweet was a “baseless attack” and countered that he is careful not to disclose classified information obtained in sessions with Nunes and the rest of the committee.
The Massachusetts native said it has become “confusing” that Trump has gone from calling him “Sleazy Adam Schiff” to “Little Adam Schiff.”
“It’s often hard to understand the president’s tweets,” he said. “It may be time for General Kelly to give the president a ‘time-out’. The country would certainly benefit from that anyway.”
Schiff said in an evening press conference that he hopes Nunes’ “phases of distraction” will come to an end so that his investigation could “get back on track” and look deeper into allegations of Russian collusion in the 2016 election.
During the past several months of seeing Adam Schiff’s mug plastered all over the Cable News Channels, have you ever wondered exactly why he hates President Donald J. Trump with such a passion?
It could have something to do with the company he keeps…or at least kept…
On April 10, 2017, Breitbart News reported that
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was previously financially aided by the George Soros-financed MoveOn.org to win his Congressional seat.
Schiff was also awarded the Toll Fellowship, which is sponsored by the Council of State Governments, a nonprofit that monitors federal government activities and is heavily financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
The Open Society and Soros-funded groups have additionally supported a number of Schiff’s legislative efforts.
Schiff has been helping to lead the Democrats’ unsubstantiated charges of alleged collusion between President Donald Trump and Moscow.
Last month, Schiff delivered the opening statements at a Congressional hearing where he laid out the case for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. This reporter previously documented serious problems with Schiff’s charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source.
In largely forgotten history, Schiff’s 2000 Congressional campaign against Republican incumbent Jim Rogan was openly aided by MoveOn.org.
On January 1, 2000, the Wall Street Journal reported on the radical group’s fundraising efforts for Schiff. The Congressional seat was particularly important since Rogan had gained fame after he was selected to be one of thirteen House Managers in the 1998 impeachment case of Bill Clinton. Rogan was supportive of Clinton’s impeachment and became a hero in the Republican Party.
The Journal reported:
“If MoveOn were to achieve its ambitious goals, it just might have a big impact on this year’s struggle to control Congress, especially the House. Republicans hold only a slim five-vote majority there, and the outcome will “likely be determined in no more than three dozen congressional districts,” says Thomas Mann, director of governmental studies at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank.”
And of course, most congressional impeachment proponents were Republicans. One of the most prominent among them, House impeachment manager James Rogan of California, faces a challenge this year from Democratic State Senator Adam Schiff, for whom MoveOn to date has raised $106,000, Mr. Boyd says.
CNN reported on the MoveOn.org money for Schiff’s 2000 campaign: “By 2000, MoveOn.org was raising $2 million for Democratic candidates, including more than $100,000 to help California’s Adam Schiff beat Congressman James Rogan, one of the House managers during Clinton’s impeachment trial.”
MoveOn.org also sponsored a January 2010 rally in favor of health care reform outside Schiff’s office in Pasadena, California.
Schiff’s 2000 campaign bio, meanwhile, relates that he was “awarded the prestigious Toll Fellowship, sponsored by The Council of State Governments.”
The bio continues:
“Nominated and endorsed by his peers in the Legislature, Schiff was selected from many outstanding applicants across the nation by a committee of state elected and appointed officials as one of the most promising new leaders of state government. In 1998, the California League of High Schools named Schiff Legislator of the Year.
Schiff later said that the Toll Fellowship “helped me identify my own leadership strengths, work more effectively with my colleagues and strengthen my relationship with the media.”
The Council of State Governments, which sponsors the Toll Fellowship, is heavily financed by Soros. The Open Society provided the group with $320,000 in 2003; $1 million in 2004; and another $100,000 that year alone.
In 2009, Schiff introduced the Criminal Justice Reinvestment Act. The bill was described by the Justice Center at the Soros-funded Council of State Governments – which gave Schiff the Toll Fellowship award – as providing “grants to state and local governments to design and advance data-driven, consensus-based strategies to reduce corrections spending and increase public safety.”
A press release from the Council of State Governments said that Schiff’s bill “builds on the justice reinvestment work done by the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center in Texas, Kansas, Vermont, Rhode Island and seven other states.”
The Justice Center’s justice reinvestment initiative was itself directly supported by Soros’s Open Society, the press release documents.
In 2014, the Open Society released a statement publicly supporting legislation by Schiff “requiring the president to provide an annual public report on the total number of persons killed or injured in drone strikes.” The Open Society further signed a joint statement with other leftwing groups, including organizations financed by Soros, supporting Schiff’s Targeted Lethal Force Transparency Act.
Why would Billionaire Specialist and ex-Nazi collaborator devote so much of his time, attention…and money to Adam Schiff?
Simply put: They’re family. Or, at least…they were…
5 days before the preceding story appeared, the following story appeared in The New York Post…
Billionaire George Soros’ son Robert will have to share his $22 million contemporary art collection with his soon-to-be-ex wife, an appeals court has ruled in a case that could have widespread ramifications for New York collectors.
Robert Soros had argued that the four paintings– including Jeff Koons’ “The Empire State of Scotch, Dewars” and Christopher Wool’s “Fool,”– belong to him because his name is on the bills of sale.
But a judicial panel from Manhattan’s Appellate Division disagreed.
“An invoice cannot said to be dispositive of ownership,” Justice Tory Karen Webber wrote on behalf of the panel. “The purpose of the invoice is not to identify the titled owner,” Webber added.
She noted that invoices are often “unreliable,” containing inflated prices or inaccurate descriptions.
Melissa Soros says they acquired the paintings together, which gives her a right to half of their value, according to the former couple’s prenuptial agreement.
The appeals panel overturned a lower court ruling that found the works belonged to Robert Soros, who runs his father’s Soros Fund Management, because he paid for them.
His attorney, Eleanor Alter, declined to comment because the $350 million divorce case is ongoing.
But Melissa Soros’ lawyer applauded the ruling.
“This decision is like a hand grenade into the enemy camp,” said Bernard Clair.
Clair predicted that the ruling will have “far reaching applicability” on issues that have been challenging not only to matrimonial practitioners but any lawyers who deal with personal property, especially art.”
“They now have guidance that invoices aren’t the only controlling factor in deciding ownership,” Clair said.
The appeals panel ordered a hearing to determine how to divvy up the works.
Robert Soros filed for divorce from his wife of 24 years in May 2014. They have two adult children.
If you haven’t guessed by now, the Former Melissa Soros’ maiden name is Melissa Schiff. She is the sister of Adam Schiff.
Evidently, all of the acrimony between the divorcing couple did not affect Soros’ backing of Adam Schiff.
Now that I have “3 men on base”, let’s see if I can hit a Grand Slam…
As I reported yesterday, Sidney Blumenthal, an employee of George Soros and a confidante of the Clintons was involved in the writing of a Second Dossier, which was incorporated into the notorious Steele Dossier, which the FBI used as “evidence” which warranted the appointment of a Special Counsel and a lengthy yet unfruitful ongoing investigation into supposed collusion between Donald Trump, his campaign staff, and the Russian Government.
So far, that collusion has not been proven in any shape or form.
However, as the First FISA Memo showed, there was all sorts of collusion going on between Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Department of Justice, the FBI, and “Foreign Agents”, such as Sidney Blumenthal and Cody Shearer.
Not to mention the collusion-filled Uranium One Scandal in which a sitting Secretary of State gave 20% of America’s Uranium Supply to the Russian Government.
Since Donald J. Trump announced that he was going to run for President of the United States of America, George Soros has had a bug up his arse about it. Throughout Trump’s successful campaign and his first year as President, Soros has tried every thing within his power to oust him from office.
Soros’ tactics have included intimidation of voters at Campaign Rallies, financing of radical organizations such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa and even, it seems, the covert financing of the Covert Operation now known as FISAGate.
I firmly believe that the mission of George Soros, from the moment he landed on our shores to this very day, has been exactly what his political puppet, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama, said that his was during his first presidential campaign: to “radically change” our nation into something that every patriotic American will no longer recognize.
The Machiavellian Plan involving the Steele Dossier, the abuse of the FISA Act, and the appoint of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel along with the picking of 16 Democrat-Donating Bureaucrats as Special Investigators, with this past week’s revelations shining the light on them, positively reeks of Soros-bought corruption.
The plot sickens…with each passing day.
Until He Comes,
