Progressive financier George Soros may be getting senile in his old age, as the 89-year-old investor has actually suggested in recent days that President Donald Trump and Facebook are in cahoots to win the 2020 presidential election.
“I think there is a kind of informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook,” Soros said during an appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“Facebook will work together to reelect Trump, and Trump will work to protect Facebook so that this situation cannot be changed, and it makes me very concerned for 2020,” he added.
Soros provided no evidence to support his claim, but he reiterated his baseless belief in a New York Times op/ed published last week.
“I believe that Mr. Trump and Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, realize that their interests are aligned – the president’s in winning elections, Mr. Zuckerberg’s in making money,” Soros wrote in the fake news rag.
Soros is essentially arguing for Facebook to be regulated by government bureaucrats, not to protect the freedom of expression for all users of the platform, but rather to intensify the Big Brother stranglehold on dissident voices.
“They follow only one guiding principle: maximize profits irrespective of the consequences,” Soros wrote of Zuckerberg and the company’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.
Facebook vehemently denied the politically-motivated charges levied against them by Soros in an official statement.
“While we respect Mr. Soros’ right to voice his opinion, he’s wrong. The notion that we are aligned with any one political figure or party runs counter to our values and the facts,” Facebook said in a statement about Soros’ blather.
Long-time Facebook executive Andrew “Boz” Bosworth credits Trump’s social media success to his campaign’s prowess in utilizing digital ads, which he calls the best that has ever been done.
“Was Facebook responsible for Donald Trump getting elected?” Bosworth wrote in an internal post from Dec. 30. “I think the answer is yes, but not for the reasons anyone thinks. He didn’t get elected because of Russia or misinformation or Cambridge Analytica. He got elected because he ran the single best digital ad campaign I’ve ever seen from any advertiser.”
Soros appears to be using his bully pulpit and oligarchical power to force Facebook into total compliance with the Orwellian nightmare. Although Facebook now pays lip service to freedom of speech, they are still cracking down on independent news outlets – such as Big League Politics – like never before.
Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation
They say they’ll vote ‘No.’
Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.
Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.
News: @SenatorCollins told me earlier this month in Maine that she would not seat a Supreme Court justice in October.
“I think that’s too close, I really do,” she said.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.
It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.
This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
