WaPo Finds the Bloch Brothers Behind Cain; Hardly the Same as Soros Behind Obama is it?

Posted on October 17, 2011

The shovels are out and digging in liberal enclaves for dirt about Herman Cain since his surprise rise and staying power.  Recently the Washington Post ran with the headline:

Herman Cain’s deep ties to Koch brothers key to campaign

“Deep ties.”  Does that translate into indebted?  Or do they just like to have lunch and talk politics.  Big range of options there and not many stops in between.

Go ahead, research the Koch Brothers and their firm – largest privately owned company in the US – and you won’t find a lot of corporate crime.  They could pay more taxes but they in fact are deep into corporate giving to a number of non-profits.  Their criminal activity is limited to being Conservative and supporters of the Tea Party.

So why the fuss to suddenly find out that Cain, like any other politician these days, has had to take money from some corporate giants?  Haven’t we priced campaigns out of the range of the average citizen.  Who among us is able to mount a campaign without a large donor in the wings?

Now Google “George Soros.”  Behold the range of activity this billionaire financier has taken on:

In the 2000 version of his book “Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism,” Soros wrote how the Bretton Woods institutions “failed spectacularly” during the economic crisis of the late 1990s. When he called for a new Bretton Woods in 2009, he wanted it to “reconstitute the International Monetary Fund,” and while he’s at it, restructure the United Nations, too, boosting China and other countries at our expense.

“Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council,” he wrote. “That process needs to be initiated by the U.S., but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals.”

Soros emphasized that point, that this needs to be a global solution, making America one among many. “The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters.”

And that’s exactly the kind of event INET is delivering, with the event website emphasizing “today’s reconstruction must engage the larger European Union, as well as the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia.” China figures prominently, including a senior economist for the World Bank in Beijing, the director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the chief adviser for the China Banking Regulatory Commission and the Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations.

This is all easy to do when you have the reach of George Soros who funds more than 1,200 organizations. Except, any one of those 1,200 would shout such an event from the highest mountain. Groups like MoveOn.org or the Center for American Progress didn’t make their names being quiet. The same holds true globally, where Soros has given more than $7 billion to Open Society Foundations – including many media-savvy organizations just a phone call away. Why hasn’t the Soros network spread the word?

So there you have it.  The Obama prime backer and the Cain prime backer.  Quite a difference and not much room for error on the part of the Koch Brothers.  They’re not trying to recast our system.
