Soros secret funding manipulates public opinion.

September 27, 2007 Washington Times

Greg Pierce - Hidden hand

"George Soros is known for funding groups such as that seek to manipulate public opinion. So why is the billionaire's backing of what he believes in problematic? In a word: transparency," Investor's Business Daily says in an editorial.

"How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely 'NASA whistleblower' standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute, which gave him 'legal and media advice'?

"That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship 'philanthropy,' by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's 'politicization of science' program," the newspaper said.

"That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly 'censored' spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda. ...

"That's not the only case. Didn't the mainstream media report that 2006's vast immigration rallies across the country began as a spontaneous uprising of 2 million angry Mexican-flag-waving illegal immigrants demanding U.S. citizenship in Los Angeles, egged on only by a local Spanish-language radio announcer?

"Turns out that wasn't what happened, either. Soros' OSI had money-muscle there, too, through its $17 million Justice Fund. The fund lists 19 projects in 2006. One was vaguely described involvement in the immigration rallies. Another project funded illegal-immigrant activist groups for subsequent court cases.

"So what looked like a wildfire grass-roots movement really was a manipulation from OSI's glassy Manhattan offices. The public had no way of knowing until the release of OSI's 2006 annual report.

"Meanwhile, OSI cash backed terrorist-friendly court rulings, too.

"Do people know last year's Supreme Court ruling abolishing special military commissions for terrorists at Guantanamo was a Soros project? OSI gave support to Georgetown lawyers in 2006 to win Hamdan v. Rumsfeld — for the terrorists."
