Soros Funding Philly Pro-Sanctuary, Open-Borders District Attorney Candidate

Published

on

A group named Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety has filed a political committee registration ahead of the city’s Democratic primary election for district attorney, and it is being funded by none other than George Soros.

The group is planning to back civil rights attorney Larry Krasner in the race, who has vowed that he would never pursue the death penalty in any case and will keep Philadelphia a “sanctuary city.”

While the globalist billionaire is not named in any of the paperwork for the group, the address they list is for DC law firm Perkins Coie, which Soros-backed PAC’s have used as a front address in other states, Philly.com reports. The treasurer of the group is Witney Tymas, who has served in the same role for other Soros organizations.

The candidate has an entire segment of his platform titled, “Resist the Trump Administration.” The section outlines his plan to “protect immigrants,” “reject the drug war,” and “stand up to police misconduct.”

“As District Attorney, he will work to maintain Philadelphia as a ‘sanctuary city’ and protect the Fourth Amendment rights of all residents, cooperating with federal authorities only to the degree required by law,” Krasner’s website states. “Because legal proceedings can affect the status of immigrants and therefore relations between communities and law enforcement, Larry will take those effects into account when making prosecutorial decisions and setting prosecutorial policy. He will oppose renewal of ICE’s access to the PARS database, a city police database used by ICE to identify ‘deportable’ immigrants.”

In February, other organizations funded by Soros teamed up with Democratic attorney generals to file over a dozen lawsuits against the Trump administration in relation to his executive order to temporarily halt immigration from terrorist hot spots.

Soros’s Open Society Foundations, a pro-open borders and pro-globalization advocacy organization, also financed several non-profit organizations that filed lawsuits against the order.

Among the groups Soros financed who filed lawsuits against the administration were the National Immigration Law Center, who he handed $4.6 million and the Urban Justice Center, which also has an organization called the International Refugee Assistance Project, who received $621,000.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep US ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America,” Matthew Vadum, senior vice president of the Capital Research Center, a Washington think tank that investigates nonprofits, told LifeZette at the time the lawsuit funding was revealed. “Soros has said he wants to bring America down. Flooding the country with Muslim aliens who won’t assimilate is one way to do that.”

Is Florida GOP Governor Candidate, Adam Putnam, Owned By Big Sugar?

Published

on

What has current Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam done about the latest onslaught of toxic algae as a direct result of the Lake Okeechobee drainage into the rivers, leading directly to Florida’s oceans? Why hasn’t Putnam addressed the many issues stemming from these dumps? Why is the lake laced with so much toxic algae? Some say this is a direct result of the Big Sugar corporations.

Between October and April sugar companies burn the leaves surrounding the sugar cane prior to harvesting. Ash rains down on the local communities and dark smoke in the air travels for miles leaving a strong odor and a burning sensation in local residents’ eyes. Imagine the damage it does to local waterways, specifically Lake Okeechobee. The recent epidemic of dead sea life washing ashore in Southwest Florida has impacted the local communities who are suffering breathing issues and creating a loss of tourism, causing residents to suffer physically and financially.

Putnam, a career politician, is backed by Big Sugar. Florida Grown, Putnam’s political committee, has raised $470,000 from U.S. Sugar Corporation alone over the last three years, according to financial records on the committee’s website, with other sugar-affiliated organizations also donating hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Dubbed “Algae Adam”, Putnam has opposed efforts to clean Florida’s waterways. According to Democratic Governors Association, “As Agriculture Commissioner, Putnam backed a water bill that gutted water quality regulations and assigned only eight staffers to manage the 3.5 million acres north of Lake Okeechobee.” The DGA attacks continued, “As both Agriculture Commissioner and a gubernatorial candidate, Putnam has been “oblivious” to toxic algae and instead chosen to embrace policies that would only cause more pollution. Floridians can expect more of the same if Adam Putnam ends up in the Governor’s mansion.”

Putnam’s 2016 water bill titled Florida Senate Bill 552was rushed through Florida legislature. The bill eliminated requirements to measure or limit pollution into the lake. This, in essence, allows any organization contributing contaminators into the waterways to not be held accountable. Lake Okeechobee is a breeding ground for bacteria including fecal matter, excess fertilizer runoff and other toxins. Putnam refuses to address his relationship with Big Sugar and has done little to touch on the issue of Lake O algae bloom, simply congratulating Governor Rick Scott on the approval of a new reservoir project to store more water south of Lake O.

The latest outbreak of toxic blue-green algae bloom on Florida coastlines tells a tragic story. In recent months, there has been an increase in the deaths of sea and wildlife, including manatee, due to the effects of the algae blooms that presents itself as a thick green slush. The increase in the outbreaks often happens in concurrence with the draining of Lake O.

U.S. Representative for Florida’s Sixth District Ron DeSantis, Putnam’s primary competitor in the Florida gubernatorial race, supports fixing the toxic algae bloom in Florida waterways.

DeSantis was one of only three Florida state representatives who in May voted for an amendment that would effectively reform Big Sugar by eliminating production limits (inflating sugar costs for growers), allowing the Department of Agriculture to increase sugar imports and end sales of surplus to ethanol producers. Big Sugar corporations have since stopped donating to DeSantis.

In June, DeSantis, speaking at the GOP Sunshine Summit in Orlando, insisted that the next governor must address the issue of the Lake Okeechobee drainage that is causing so much damage to both Florida coasts. By opposing policies at the federal level that would directly affect Big Sugar, DeSantis

DeSantis has already received high praise and a full endorsement from President Trump.

Who will you support in the Florida gubernatorial primary? If your hope is for Florida Big Sugar to clean up its act and stop the damage to Florida waterways, Algae Adam wouldn’t even be on the list of contenders for Florida Governor.
