A university funded by George Soros has been forced out of the billionaire’s native country of Hungary, according to a Monday report.
“The Central European University, founded by George Soros, said on Monday it had been forced out of Hungary in “an arbitrary eviction” that violated academic freedom, and it confirmed plans to enroll new students in neighboring Austria next year,” said Reuters.
Soros, who donates millions to leftist nonprofits mostly in the United States, has been engulfed in a battler with the right-leaning leader of his native land, Prime Minister Victor Orban. The main point of contention is immigration policy. Soros often funds open borders groups, while Hungary has refused to partake in the harboring of Middle Eastern and African migrants. Orban forced Soros’ Open Societies Foundation out of Hungary earlier this year.
CEU is not thrilled with its eviction.
“CEU has been forced out,” said CEU President Michael Ignatieff, according to the report. “This is unprecedented. A U.S. institution has been driven out of a country that is a NATO ally. A European institution has been ousted from a member state of the EU.”
According to the report, CEU’s status as a university has been in question since Hungary implemented new laws requiring foreign universities to provide courses in their home countries as well as in Hungary.
Some view CEU’s eviction as Orban targeting Soros.
“Orban’s critics say the changes deliberately target CEU, which is regularly ranked as the top university in Hungary and offers U.S. degrees,” the report said. “Orban accuses Soros of encouraging mass immigration into Europe, a charge the philanthropist denies.”
CAUGHT IN A LIE: Lincoln Project Neocons Knew of John Weaver’s Grooming, Still Sought to Establish Media Organization With Him
Higher-ups knew of allegations against Weaver, and still wanted to turn the Lincoln Project into a media organization.
A new report has claimed that Lincoln Project leadership thought of turning their super PAC into a media organization and bringing John Weaver on board, even though they knew about grooming allegations against him.
The New York Times published the report Monday afternoon, which was titled “Inside the Lincoln Project’s Secrets, Side Deals and Scandals.”
Co-founder Steve Schmidt held a meeting at his Utah home a few days before the 2020 election to discuss transforming the Lincoln Project into a massive media organization. He said to the group that “five years from now, there will be a dozen billion-dollar media companies that don’t exist today. I would like to build one, and would invite all of you to be part of that.”
According to the New York Times, Schmidt had already filed papers to create TLP Media back in September and October 2020 with Reed Galen, Rick Wilson, and John Weaver. The report said that “its aim was to transform the original project, a super PAC, into a far more lucrative venture under their control.”
But it has been established that Schmidt and other leaders knew about the allegations against Weaver as early as March 2020, despite previously claiming they didn’t. They appear to have been so focused on grifting and lining their own pockets that Weaver’s behavior didn’t really matter to them. It wasn’t until multiple accusers came forward in January that Schmidt, Wilson, and others disavowed and cut ties with Weaver.
Former staffers like George Conway have called for the disbanding of the Lincoln Project altogether, though the Times states that Steve Schmidt’s faction “intends to continue it as a modern media campaign against global forces of authoritarianism, while also monetizing the movement.”
