Is it any surprise anti-Israel Rep. Rashida Tlaib was funded by Soros-group before running for Congress?
Now it makes sense. Soros-groups fund the anti-Israel ecosystem, as we reported in 2016, and Tlaib was part of that ecosystem.
In her 2017 financial disclosure forms, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) revealed that she received a “Leadership in Government” fellowship, and the source of this funding was later revealed to be George Soros’ Open Society.
As we’ve covered here at LI, the foul-mouthed Tlaib pushes anti-Semitic tropes every bit as much as Rep. Ilhan Omar.
In BDS-supporter Rep. Rashida Tlaib plays anti-Semitic dual loyalty and disloyalty cards against Israel supporters, Professor Jacobson noted:
Rashida Tlaib is a new Palestinian-American congresswoman from the Detroit area.
She’s also an Israel hater and supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which is a modern version of the anti-Jewish boycotts dating back at least to the 1920s in the then British Mandate for Palestine. (See my lecture, The Real History of the BDS Movement.)
. . . . As much controversy as that m-f-er pledge generated, Tlaib has generated even more controversy by accusing supporters of Israel in Congress of being disloyal to the U.S.
The accusation came in a tweet about pending legislation which would update federal anti-boycott laws that have been on the books since the 1970s.
Here’s the tweet:Mary reported in her post entitled Report: Rep. Rashida Tlaib Penned Column for Anti-Semitic Farrakhan Publication in 2006:
Tlaib has only been in Congress a little over a month, but she came on with a bang by having notorious anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, the woman who loves Farrakhan and terrorist Rasmea Odeh, with her at her swearing in. Also, someone covered Israel on the map in her office with a Post-It that says Palestine.
After her swearing-in, Tlaib dined with Abbas Hamideh, “a ‘Palestinian right of return’ activist who has called Israel a ‘terrorist entity.’ Hamideh has also tweeted that Israel has a “delusional ISIS-like ideology” and that the creation of the country was a ‘crime.’”
So we took note when the Free Beacon reported on the connection of Tlaib to the Soros network. Soros, through various groups he funds particularly the Open Society entities, is a major funder of the anti-Israel movement.
The Washington Free Beacon reports not only on the Soro-backed funding of Tlaib, but discrepancies in reporting of that funding.:
Tlaib also reported a $68,307 salary for a “Leadership in Government Fellowship” in 2017 but did not disclose the name of the organization who provided the funding for the fellowship, as required by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ethics.
The Washington Free Beacon reached out to George Soros’s spokesperson in December and were provided copies of tax forms for all entities that are run by the liberal billionaire and make up his Open Society network.
On page 97 of the 321-page tax form for the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundation, an expenditure of $85,307 is shown to Tlaib for a “leadership in government fellowship,” the Free Beacon reported.
The amount that Soros’s group reported paying out to Tlaib on its tax forms, $85,307, differs from the amount Tlaib reported on her financial disclosure—$68,307—for her leadership in government fellowship.
“Rashida Tlaib was awarded a Leadership in Government fellowship from the Open Society Foundations in the fall of 2016,” Jonathan Kaplan, Soros’s spokesperson, told the Free Beacon at the time. “Her project: to focus on increasing the civic participation of disenfranchised urban communities of color. When Ms. Tlaib informed us that she was planning to run for Congress, we mutually agreed to suspend her fellowship and no further payments were made.”
Kendra Arnold, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a government watchdog group, said that the payment was “problematic” given that candidates are required to disclose the source of their income.
Here’s more from our 2016 story, Soros-funded anti-Israel ecosystem unmasked by hack:
One of the mysteries of the anti-Israel “non-governmental organization” (NGO) movement is the sources of funding.
NGO Monitor has done a great job tracking some of the funding particularly for Israeli NGOs, and groups involved in the BDS movement, such as Jewish Voice for Peace.
In 2013, NGO Monitor also explored (pdf.) the role of George Soros’ foundations, including the Open Society Foundations, in funding a wide range of anti-Israel NGOs.
A recent hack of the Open Society Foundations, sheds even more light with documentary evidence of a Soros-funded anti-Israel ecosystem feeding off each other to delegitimize Israel.
The Jewish Press reported on the circular nature of the funding. Soros funds groups directly, and other groups that fund other groups. He created an anti-Israel ecosystem….
Is it such a surprise that one of the most anti-Israel new representatives was helped along the way by the Soros network?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Soros is a grave threat to modern civilization, his agenda could easily lead to a new dark age. There should be a special prosecutor haranguing Soros.
Absolutely. An enemy of the state.
Enemy of Mankind world wide. Letting him and his organizations keep the wealth that he gained via Capitalism to do the work of Satan, is like giving matches to a child to play with.
But he did not earn it honestly imo.
He did it by hook and crook imo.
Soros is Adolph Hitler’s Heir.
Strange how his fat little fingers seem to be involved in with almost everything politically vile in this country.
It’s much, much worse:
“The people of New York did not elect a Puerto Rican girl from the Bronx named “Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez” – They actually elected an Indian guy from Texas, Saikat Chakrabarti, a white guy from Tennessee, Corbin Trent.
In 2016, Cortez was working as a bartender in New York City. She’d never dreamed of running for Congress. It was her brother who entered her into a contest being held by a group called the Justice Democrats, headed by the above-named people. It was quite literally a casting call. Out of 10,000 entries, AOC won the role to play the Congresswoman from New York’s 14th District. They make no secret of this.
Cortez indisputably has star power. The film featuring her at the Sundance Film Festival was such a hit, that the producers were immediately able to sell the non-theatrical distribution rights to Netflix for a lofty $10 million, which is almost unheard-of for an independent documentary film in today’s market.
From the Justice Democrats’ own promotional film, it appears that at least going in, Cortez doesn’t plan on being the Bronx’ Representative for very long. As she says, in the promo, “If you’re a one-term Congressmember, so what? You can make ten years’ worth of change in one term.” Disposable candidates actually appears to be part of the Justice Democrats’ business model.
The Justice Democrats have created a very data-driven, organized, Silicon Valley approach to politics and the Democrat Party. They have a business plan and a platform, which includes the Green New Deal, which they admit was written over the course of a weekend last December (obvious to anyone who’s read it). Their lack of qualifications notwithstanding, they want nothing less than to 1. replace the Democrat Party with the young Social Democrats who they control, 2. take control of Congress and then 3. take over the United States. It’s all about control.
They identify vulnerable districts they think they can win and they “primary them”. They have a very effective social media marketing plan for collecting new candidates who will run on their platform. They audition, groom and train their candidates in their talking points, they raise the campaign funds and expertly do their intensive social media.
Cortez’s Chief-of-Staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, a 33-year-old self-made millionaire tech entrepreneur came under fire last week when it was discovered that he’d diverted over $1 million of AOC’s campaign funds into a series of shell corporations that appear to have been deliberately set up to obscure the destination of the funds, in a total contradiction to AOC’s pledges to increase transparency and to reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics. Both he and AOC have been named in a complaint filed with the Federal Elections Committee (FEC) to investigate their shady PACs. If convicted, they could technically do a few years in prison.
It’s been determined that the mastermind behind Chakrabarti is Zack Exley, a Saul Alinksy-ite, Radical Leftist who’s been a political operative for some time, working on campaigns for John Kerry, the UK’s Labour Party, Bernie Sanders, as the Chief Revenue Officer of the Wikimedia Foundation and an associate of George Soros’ Open Borders Foundation…”
We don’t often point to our own blog, but in this instance, we feel complelled to. Everybody: you MUST watch this video:
The Brains Behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
Seems like almost all of your blog post points have been previously reported in other outlets days, weeks ago.
Not everyone has the pulse of the news at their fingertips as you do. Maybe next time you can beat him to the punch days or weeks before he could. I am sure that would be greatly appreciated.
Casualobserver appears to be in some kind of contest.
In any event, the idea is spread information hidden by corrupt news sources. FEW people have seen the video.
Here it is on youtube.com:
WATCH IT. WHEREVER.
Keep posting such finds Fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And your point is?
I just saw the video earlier today and if I hadn’t yours would have been my first exposure to it. Thanks for sharing.
Have to wonder which charm theatrics school Obama also attended.
Keeping AOC and others off script should be a goal.
Retiring that corrupt loser McConnell would be better.
Finding out where AG Barr is hiding would be next.
2 Muslims and a mentally retarded 12 year old run the Democrat caucus and most of the Republicans also.
Tlaib was wrapped in a Palestinian flag at her victory celebration. Dual loyalty…?
Taliab is a maggot. Worse is coming.
I hope NSA is keeping an eye on both Taliab and Ilihan to make damn sure they aren’t sharing classified information with their real countries. Especially information from the Foreign Relations Committee. How the hell did she ever get appointed to that committee? Does she have a security clearance?
My understanding is members of congress are given access to information based on their committee assignments with no security clearance required. It was assumed party leadership would care enough about the country to vet members before making committee assignments.
I’m willing to bet that NSA and the other Intel Agencies are focused on doing the bidding of the Socialist Demtards to help them convince those lacking in Critical Thinking that Donald Trump stole the election from poor misunderstood Hillary “The Coronation Queen” Clinton, when in fact, she was the most mendacious, duplicitous, and corrupt person to have ever been nominated for President and lost on her own. She was absolutely horrible not only as a candidate, but as a person and was everything that is wrong about politics in our Country. She and her cohorts felt it was her “Right of Passage” to be President and continue her “Pay to Play” Activities on a scale that made all before look like Chump Change.
America caught a break when Donald Trump decided to put aside his luxurious billionaire lifestyle and run as an Outsider funding his own campaign so as to be totally independent from the Establishment Uniparty and its NWO Globalist Puppet Masters. He has upset their plans “Bigly” and we have a chance to survive once we jettison less than useless Republicans like Mitch “McCommunist”, Kevin “McBoehner”, and other Prima Donnas who just can’t get a clue because they’re too stupid, e.g., Lindsey “Grahamnesty”, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Thom Tillson, John Thune, Cory Gardener, Lamar Alexander, and Richard Shelby just to name a few.
Our job as voters is to give President Trump the help he needs and that is going to be a huge challenge given the anticiapted Voter Fraud and Election Official Conspiracy in 2020 that will make the attempt to steal elections by Broward County’s Election Supervisor, Demtard Brenda Snipes, look tame. IT SHOULD ALREADY BE IN THE WORKS TO PUT INTO PLACE PROTECTIONS AGAINS BALLOT HARVESTING, ABSENTEE BALLOT RIGGING, AND OTHERS. AND IF NOT, FIND OUT WHY.
