One hates to get in the way of the Republican Partyâ€™s public relations effort to persuade social conservatives that John McCain is a good investment â€“ but troubling facts keep bubbling to the fore.
One of the most disturbing is a story relating John McCainâ€™s long association with George Soros. You can see it for yourself by clicking on the article at WorldNetDaily.
For those unfamiliar with George Soros â€“ letâ€™s just cut to the chase and label him the premier financier of just about everything evil and socialist in America. He funds MoveOn.org, a militant anti-military organization which also seeks to advance a radical social agenda for America. He is the man who just declared that he was hoping Americaâ€™s economy would collapse so that power would shift to third world countries like Mexico. And those are just the things that just casually come to mind.
According to the investigation at WorldNetDaily, Soros is funding something called the Reform Institute, based in Alexandria. “McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections,” says the article.
For example, McCainâ€™s current campaign manager, Rick Davis, was paid $110,000 a year by the institute until he became its president in 2004; then his salary increased to $120,000.
Despite the nefarious funding from George Soros and Teresa Heinz Kerry, as well as a dubious donation of $200,000 from Cablevision at the time McCain was advancing their legislative agenda at the Federal Communications Commission â€“ the Reform Institute has backed McCainâ€™s efforts at campaign finance reform and amnesty for illegal aliens.
The WorldNetDaily expose also notes that McCainâ€™s institute has received generous contributions from pro-abortion groups like the Tides Foundation and the Educational Foundation of America.
Not only does this article raise serious questions about McCainâ€™s claim to being a “conservative” â€“ one wonders about the grand hypocrisy of the man who has battled fiercely to shut down the voices of average Americans by further criminalizing political speech.
Honestly: What in the world is a “pro-Life conservative” doing in bed with these people? The spin masters at the RNC ought to get on this little problem … immediately.
