Globalist billionaire George Soros has a history of meddling in American affairs, of sowing discord, and funding various protest groups as a means to circumvent Conservative and Republican ideologies. Soros’ Open Society Policy Center (OSPC) has contributed millions of dollars in a concerted effort to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Daily Caller reports –
“OSPC is practically indistinct from the Open Society Foundations (OSF), Soros’ philanthropic and grant-giving network. OSPC has no employees of its own, according to the Center’s 2016 tax forms. Rather, Foundations employees are compensated for any work done for the Center. Said compensation is determined by the OSF and documented in OSF’s internal records.
“OSPC has no employees,” the form reads. “Employees of Open Society [Foundations], a related section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, perform services for OSPC. OSPC advances funds to Open Society [Foundations] for their services based on the time they spend on OSPC matters. Their compensation is determined by Open Society [Foundations], and is based on market comparability data and is documented in Open Society [Foundations’] records.”
This coalition of activist organizations consisting of groups such as the Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), Demand Justice, and Housing Works have scheduled and created near constant disruptions at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as part of a concerted effort to derail the confirmation process. Cash from these donor-funded groups is put into a slush fund of sorts going towards the protesters’ post-and-forfeit payments. It is simply a small cash sum paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time.
Yet mainstream media outlets accuse President Donald Trump of spreading conspiracy theories for citing what is readily available via public record. President Trump roundly criticized anti-Kavanaugh protesters after they chose to confront Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and accused her of paid by Soros.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

President Trump tweeted – “The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love!

Mainstream media outlets such as the Daily Beast, Think Progress, and others are functioning as little more than propaganda mouthpieces for the leftist progressives and the Democratic party. They accused President Trump of merely peddling a conspiracy and expressed utter disbelief that anyone could possibly think that these anti-Kavanaugh protesters might have been paid by Soros.

I'm sorry but the "Soros is paying them" trope from the president of the United States is … wow. Read (((Semitism))): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump. https://t.co/TGHqkEqxI0 https://t.co/lvg7sch5gQ

Yet, one protestor actually openly admitted on MSNBC to being just that – a paid protestor on Soros’ payroll.
Holy shit. I had to triple check that this wasn't from a Trump parody account.
POTUS really believes that George Soros is bankrolling Kavanaugh protesters. https://t.co/f3GJDUbCKv

According to the Daily Caller –
“One of the two protesters who confronted Flake in the elevator is Ana Maria Archila, an executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD). The other protester, Maria Gallagher, is an activist with the group. The CPD is indeed heavily funded by George Soros through the Open Society Foundation.
The Center for Popular Democracy’s homepage features an image of Archila and Gallagher yelling at Flake and urges supporters to “join” Archila.”
During an interview on MSNBC Friday, Archila confirmed that she works for CPD and did not deny Trump’s characterization of her efforts.
“Are you a paid professional?” MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson asked Archila.
“I work for a community organization, I work for a network of community organizations,” Archila said, adding that it is her “job” to organize people into action.
“If the president wants to know whether I work for a social justice organization, the answer is yes. And I’ve worked for a social justice organization since I was 23. That’s not news,” she asserted.”
As Conservative Review notes, “The competition for most ridiculous take on the Kavanaugh saga is huge. Here’s why New York Times op-ed columnist David Leonhardt just earned a nomination for the award. He called exposing the astroturf protests against Kavanaugh and GOP senators “anti-Semitic.”
On Friday, Maria Bartoromo asked Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, “Do you believe George Soros is behind all of this? Paying these people to get you and your colleagues in elevators?” Grassley answered, “I have heard so many people believe that. I tend to believe it.” Later in the day, Trump tweeted the accusation.
Then Leonhardt jumped in by tweet, “Let’s be clear here: Charles Grassley is a United States Senator. He is responsible for his words. And his words here amount to an anti-Semitic smear.”
Say what? Just because George Soros is Jewish doesn’t mean that this is an “anti-Semitic smear.” Maybe Leonhardt missed the CNN report from yesterday where Joe Johns reported, “They are brought here by an umbrella group or number of umbrella groups and come from all sorts of different progressive and liberal causes.”

The New York Times claims that Trump made the claim “without evidence.” The paper used as its evidence the following paragraph.
‘One of the women who confronted Mr. Flake, Ana Maria Archila, the executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, a New York-based liberal organizing group, said she had not been paid.’
Let’s unpack that. The woman they say claims she wasn’t paid is the PAID executive director of an organizing group. It’s literally her job to organize these types of protests. Archila’s compensation in 2015, according to the organization’s IRS form 990 was $150,221.
Oh, and according to Fox News, her organization regularly receives grants from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations. Forbes reported in this week’s annual Forbes 400 that Soros transferred $18 billion to this foundation over the past year.
The Times has updated its reporting and changed the title, all without an editor’s note. The paper now reports that Archila is paid by a Soros-funded group but says she wasn’t paid expressly to be there. That’s insane.”
