This report analyzes George Soros’s grants to organizations in 2010. The records show massive coordination of non-profit networks in the states and nationally. Four powerful organizations and coalitions — The STAR Coalition, The Gamaliel Foundation, the Apollo Alliance, and Green for All — are given detailed scrutiny in this regard, with the involvement of Van Jones getting special mention. Jones is the former Obama “Green Jobs Czar” fired after information about his communist past surfaced through the work of anti-communist blogger Trevor Loudon and then-Fox News personality Glenn Beck. The lobbying power of such efforts ensured that stimulus funds flowed from taxpayers into union coffers and into the hands of other activists who had been instrumental in putting President Obama into office.
(This title is from a Soros-sponsored conference on how to use Obama stimulus dollars).
By the time hundreds of billions in federal Recovery Act dollars started flowing to the states, George Soros’s grantees were poised to take advantage of key provisions of the stimulus package. This is unsurprising, for Soros had already distributed grants to dozens of activist groups who lobbied for inclusion of those provisions. These organizations were then first in line for stimulus funds earmarked for “green jobs training,” “neighborhood stabilization” and other activist-driven projects.
On May 10, 2010, a two-day event, “Organizing the Recovery,” was held in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Open Society Institute and the Ford Foundation. The STAR (States for a Transparent and Accountable Recovery) Coalition promoted the event and described itself as a network of groups working at the state and local levels to ensure that the Recovery Act was used to “address vital social needs and benefit those most harmed by the failed economic policies of the past.” This was an open invitation for the liberal/left to apply for funds.
The STAR Coalition consisted of:
California Green Stimulus Coalition
Center for Community Change
Consumer Federation of America
Economic Analysis and Research Network (EARN)
Good Jobs First
Green For All
National Employment Law Project
National Training and Information Center/National People’s Action
Partnership for Working Families
Policy Matters Ohio
Progressive States Network
Right to the City
Smart Growth America
The Opportunity Agenda
Transportation Equity Network
Wider Opportunities for Women
Of the organizations involved in the Soros effort, several are worth mentioning at this point. Green for All was founded by Van Jones, the communist “Green Jobs” czar forced to resign from the Obama Administration; the Apollo Alliance was advised by former Weather Underground terrorist Jeff Jones; the Center for Community Change; and the Transportation Equity Network, a project of the Gamaliel Foundation, which gave Barack Obama his start in community organizing and has connections to Marxist elements in the Catholic Church.
