EXPOSED: NeoCon Bill Kristol Bankrolled by Soros-Linked Leftist Billionaire

Published

on

Lately, Iraq War architect and neoconservative family prince Bill Kristol has been enjoying a career second wind as a “principled conservative” token of the left, receiving pure adulation from MSNBC liberals for denunciations of American nationalism and the Trump administration.

It seems Kristol’s political travel comes with a hefty financial incentive. In a report from American Greatness’ Julie Kelly, it was revealed that Kristol’s umbrella organization ‘Defending Democracy Together’ has recieved at least $600,000 from eBay founder and progressive billionaire sugar daddy Pierre Omidyar.

Omidyar is known as a prolific funder of Democratic and progressive organizations and causes. A 2014 report of the Media Research Center placed him on the highest tier elite liberal donors, comparable to “Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Pierre Omidyar, Tom Steyer, and Jonathan Soros.”

The latter is the son of the “charitable” kingpin, George Soros. Omidyar himself has donated extensively to Soros’ Open Society Foundations to the tunes of millions- meaning that Kristol, a supposed “conservative,” finds himself financially tied to Soros.

Kristol first came to prominence in the early 2000’s as a passionate advocate for global government, regime change and liberal internationalism. The adoption of his policy preferences would have terrible consequences for the United States, which was sucked into a disastrous war in Iraq on their false premises. Despite the costly human and geopolitical consequences, Kristol has never apologized or denounced his demands for war, and claimed as late as 2015 that the United States was “right to fight in Iraq.”

None of this has prevented Kristol from taking a spotlight on the progressive left as a prominent Trump critic, distracting from his policy record with a series of viral tweets and Russia conspiracy theories. He continues his advocacy for war, even brazenly calling for the United States to push for regime change in China, a nation with a population of 1.35 billion people.

Swamp Bureaucrats Try to Oust America First USAID appointee

Disgruntled bureaucrats.

Published

on

Bureaucrats at a division of the U.S. Agency for International Development that focuses on conflict prevention are fuming about their new boss.

In fact, they’re so angry that they drafted a lengthy memo detailing their grievances with the aim of getting the Trump administration to take action on their behalf, according to a report by Politico.

The disgruntled officials’ 13-page memo singles out Pete Marocco, the head of USAID’s Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization.

A USAID official stated that a small group of veteran staffers drafted the memo in the bureau’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI). Marocco has voiced his skepticism towards a lot of programs this division runs, which is in line with the America First reluctance of embracing foreign aid programs.

The memo portrays Marocco as a micromanager who has thrown several wrenches into the bureau’s operations. In addition, the memo accuses Marocco of marginalizing employees and being vague about his orders that are allegedly difficult to implement. According to the complaint, “thousands of hours of staff time” have been “spent unnecessarily and unproductively.”

Furthermore, the complaint alleged that Marocco “has leveraged once-routine administrative processes to reopen previously-approved plans, interrogate and redirect country programs, halt movement on programs, procurements, and people, and inject uncertainty into daily operations and office planning.“ In addition, it contended that Marocco “has eschewed providing direction in writing or through other formal channels, and rarely sent guidance to teams directly implicated. Instead, he has conveyed orders and decisions, sometimes only orally, to individual staff … who then must attempt to relay this information as best they can to colleagues. This has inevitably generated significant confusion over intent and expectations, and made it difficult to confirm decisions or maintain adequate records.”

One of the more unheralded aspects of President Donald Trump’s ascendancy into the White House has been his skepticism towards the efficacy of foreign aid, which has traditionally been plagued with corruption. According to the Brookings Institute, the U.S. government spent roughly $39.2 billion on foreign aid in 2019, with very little results to show for it.

Overall, officials like Marcocco were appointed with the task of re-orienting USAID’s priorities, which ruffled many feathers.

For example, Marocco was against a $2 million extension of an OTI program in Ukraine that senior USAID and State Department officials werenin favor of. The proposal to extend the program has been sitting on Marocco’s desk waiting for the greenlight since he assumed the position in July, according to the complaint. On two occasions he has called for canceling this program and made a request to find out how much the cancellation process would cost. Politco reported that Marocco “hasn’t said what he would want to do instead with the money besides “do something ‘important’ like train and equip the military or police, or work on security sector reform,” according to the memo, which notes that the first suggestion is prohibited by law, while the second is not a USAID priority in Ukraine.”

It’s clear that Marocco is no swamp creature and does not believe in just doling out money to corrupt countries. An America First foreign aid policy would be one of minimal to no foreign aid, and people like Marocco make it easier for us to achieve that goal.
