AG Designate Holder is a Soros Man
We at the American Thinker have long had an interest in the machinations of George Soros and his like-minded allies and acolytes who are helping to fund a wide variety of people and groups to accomplish their goal of tilting the future course of America leftward.
The group of billionaire activists often come together under the rubric of the Democracy Alliance (DA) . This group has, among other activities, funded the Secretary of States Project that has helped to elect friendly state Secretary of States so as to have friends in key positions come election time . The group has also worked to elect friendly Senators (Al Franken in Minnesota, for one example). The Democracy Alliance has funded a smorgasbord of left-wing activists groups-such as ACORN and MoveOn.Org.
Soros was an early and influential supporter of Barack Obama and held numerous fundraisers for him. There is no doubt the DA has a friend in the White House. Do they also have a friend in our nation’s probable future Attorney General, Eric Holder?
Capital Research-a think tank-has done a fine job revealing the truth behind the Democracy Alliance and the steps it has taken over the years to further its influence. They do so again in today’s article in the American Spectator regarding Eric Holder and his ties to the Democracy Alliance.
First, a brief review of Holder’s ideology (mind you, Attorney Generals are charged with administering the law in an unbiased way-the scales of justice are held by a blind woman, after all):
The president's bilious nominee told an American Constitution Society gathering in 2004 that "conservatives have been defenders of the status quo, afraid of the future, and content to allow to continue to exist all but the most blatant inequalities." They have "made a mockery of the rule of law." Conservatives try to "put the environment at risk for the sake of unproven economic theories, to play to the fears of our citizens, and not to their hopes, and to return the nation to a time that in fact never existed."
Conservatives are "breathtaking" in their "arrogance," Holder claimed. "From redistricting schemes, to attacks on abortion rights, to energy policies that are as shortsighted as they are ineffective, to tax cuts that disproportionately favor those who are well off and perpetuate many of the inequities in our nation, the conservative movement has been unafraid to push the limits in advancing this agenda."
Holder denounced what he called "the conservative agenda of social division, mindless tax cutting, and a defense posture that does not really make us safer."
Holder also has a long history of involvement in charities and nonprofits that seek to stick it to conservatives.
He has been a member of the board of directors of the American Constitution Society…
The American Constitution Society is a left-wing legal activist group working to change our nation’s laws and approaches towards law enforcement. How does this group get its money?
ACS is, of course, funded by the big players in left-wing political finance, including members of the billionaires' club, the Democracy Alliance. Reliably liberal benefactors of ACS include George Soros's Open Society Institute ($2,201,500 since 2002), Ford Foundation ($600,000 since 2003), Sandler Family Supporting Foundation ($200,000 in 2003).
As Attorney General, Holder will head the Department of Justice and will be the chief law enforcement officer in America. He can help to choose and direct the actions of our nation’s US Attorneys (people whose actions can have political consequences (see the career of Patrick Fitzgerald, for example, who prosecuted Scooter Libby and is investigating Rod Blagojevich). Holder also seems to have a very blase approach towards electoral fraud.
Holder cares little about electoral fraud. "I think there is a feeling among Republicans that there is a widespread amount of voter fraud out there. I don't think the statistics actually would substantiate it," he told Fox News in 2004.
The Department of Justice serves as a check on electoral fraud; the integrity of the voting process is not solely dependent on the various Secretary of States but also by US Attorneys appointed by the President (presumably with the help of the Attorney General). They or the attorneys that serve under them can serve to monitor the voting process at polling locations. They can also be pulled from these polling places, at will. Holder seems to believe that voting fraud is not a problem in America. He clearly does not read the Wall Street Journal, watch Fox News, or seemingly care about voting fraud if it benefits Democrats.
Given that George Soros and his allies in the Democracy Alliance have left-wing goals (on abortion, on guns, on drugs) does anyone care that our nation’s top law enforcement officer has served on a group well-funded by these people and seem to share their goals?
