Trump and His Communist Enemies
By Cliff Kincaid
If you want to understand what’s happening with Trump, don’t turn to Fox News. Professor Jonathan Turley, their go-to “expert,” is the guy who made a fool of himself by delivering testimony about the dangers of “Eugene McCarthyism.” He meant Joe McCarthy. Either way, he was off-base. An error of this kind means that he is not a serious academic.
Another Fox “expert,” former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy, vouched for the honesty and integrity of Russia-gate special prosecutor Robert Mueller, a former FBI director.
It’s worth remembering that Mueller’s disastrous tenure as FBI director included implicating the wrong people in the post-9/11 anthrax attacks, working with the Muslim Brotherhood to purge FBI materials of the truth about radical Islam, and failing to reform the FBI’s internal security system after Russian spy and FBI agent Robert Hanssen was caught.
These are the two “experts” that Fox News viewers will be subjected to ad nauseam in regard to the indictment of former President Trump.
At a time like this, with an unprecedented and flimsy indictment of a former president, we need an understanding of how communist groups are working hand-in-glove with the progressive movement and its billionaire backer George Soros. He’s a convicted inside trader with mysterious off-shore sources of cash whose apologists in the media and the Democratic Party constantly claim his critics are anti-Semitic.
But Soros is a self-declared atheist who has made billions at the expense of capitalist nations and has declared, “The main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat.” This strange observation is matched by his devotion to Karl Popper, whose “Open Society” approach is what has justified the destruction of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. Popper had been a communist in his youth.
Soros is not a communist but his impact has been much the same.
He is probably best known for funding the drug legalization movement that is engaged in addicting young people and making them psychotic through high potency mind-altering marijuana.
How Fox Served Soros
We hear a lot these days from Fox commentators about alleged Soros-backed prosecutors, a popular topic, but it was Fox which banned Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch for criticizing Soros on the Lou Dobbs show. Conservative commentator Glenn Beck was actually fired from Fox News for exposing Soros. (Dobbs was fired as well).
Beck now likes to appear on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show but he once had a show of his own on the channel, where he touched a raw nerve by naming Soros as a Nazi collaborator in his youth. Soros operatives then pressured Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and the channel’s advertisers to dump Beck.
Last July, the Wall Street Journal published a Soros op-ed about his backing of “reform prosecutors.” The Journal is published by the same company behind Fox News.
“Soros never directly funded [District Attorney Alvin] Bragg, but instead contributed to a group that supported Bragg and other liberal candidates seeking to be prosecutors,” says the Washington Post, trying to separate the billionaire from Bragg’s indictment of Trump. The paper claimed that “the repeated mention of Soros plays into antisemitic conspiracy theories that Soros, a Hungarian American Holocaust survivor, is a wealthy puppet-master who works behind the scenes to manipulate elections and further his goals.”
This is the kind of deliberately misleading defense of Soros that resulted in Fox sanitizing its coverage of the billionaire and the Journal then giving him precious space in its paper to defend himself.
Even at this late date, the Post is referring to “Soros’ Jewish identity,” a claim that masks the fact that he is a self-proclaimed atheist. The Jewish reference is repeated ad nauseum in an effort to prevent the media -- and the Congress -- from investigating the source of his wealth and the beneficiaries of his financial largesse.
But the coverage of Soros hasn’t been the only aspect of the Fox News Channel exposed as two-faced and duplicitous.
Fox Hates Trump
The release of internal emails and text messages in the current Fox lawsuit involving criticism of Dominion election systems reveals that various Fox commentators such as Tucker Carlson privately said they hated Trump while publicly appealing to his audience. “I hate him passionately,” Tucker said of the former president.
Once associated with so-called neo-con Bill Kristol, Carlson now poses as a populist opposed to the neo-cons.
The court documents in the Dominion case also show him using profanity-lace tirades against attorney Sidney Powell, who was trying to uncover foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election.
One has to wonder if Fox is seriously interested in exposing Soros.
In a careful analysis of the Trump case, Professor Stephen Presser writes about how District Attorney Alvin Bragg is using “Critical Theory” to pursue the charges and how what is unfolding is an example of how America is following Soviet Russia in using the courts “to punish political enemies.”
But Critical Theory, like Critical Race Theory, is just another word for American-style Marxism, designed in this case to consolidate a communist regime installed by Soros and eliminate his main political enemy -- Trump.
Trump understands in broad terms what is going on. On the eve of the release of his second official book since leaving the White House, the former president’s website states one critical fact -- he created the most significant political movement in American history. It is a movement that has been decades in the making.
I was a member of the conservative movement that helped elect President Ronald Reagan. He was opposed by the communists because he fought them in Hollywood and understood their strategy and tactics. I met Reagan twice in the White House.
The communists hated Reagan because he purged them from Hollywood when he was head of the Screen Actors Guild.
Middle America Backs Trump
Trump’s movement was an outgrowth of what Reagan accomplished. The background is contained in the Sam Francis book, Revolution from the Middle, about the reaction that has been building over the decades to Karl Marx’s dictate about the elimination of the bourgeoisie -- the middle-class owners of property.
After years of suffering at the hands of communists here and abroad, the middle class now understands that they are the target. But a variation of communism known as Cultural Marxism also requires the elimination of their traditional American values. Hence, the transgender movement, financed by Soros and others, targeted Christian kids in a Christian school for death. It is a dangerous escalation in the war on middle America.
The book, Letters To Trump, helps us understand how, before Trump ran for president, he was respected by figures from all sectors of society, ranging from President Richard Nixon to Hillary Clinton. Everyone loved Trump then.
But when he ran and won on a conservative platform, some of his admirers on the liberal side suddenly became his sworn enemies. As we know, Hillary’s campaign paid for Russian disinformation for the FBI to use against Trump.
Republicans like Nixon admired Trump because he was a businessman who loved America. But the Nixon presidency also serves as a model for what happened to Trump. Nixon was always a target became of his anti-communist work and his presidency was toppled because of that. He helped nail Alger Hiss and the friends of the communist spy in the establishment never forgave him.
Trump never had a single subversive in his sights. He didn’t have the background of a Reagan or a Nixon to understand the communist forces arraigned against him. Instead, he gained a sense of communist infiltration throughout the entire federal government, especially in the FBI.
Rather than listen to Jonathan Turley and Andy McCarthy, I suggest reading or watching Trump’s recent speech in Iowa. The former president understands the stakes and who the enemies are.
“For seven years,” he said, “our MAGA movement, the greatest in political history, this has never been anything like this. It has been taking on all of the evil and sinister forces trying to destroy America’s future. You know that. You know it better than most. We stand up to the globalists. We stand up to the Marxists.”
He added, “We stand up to the RINOs, communists and the anti-energy extremists…We stand up to the open borders fanatics and the pro-China special interests and the fake news media…”
At first, Trump didn’t always understand what he was up against. That’s why he made the fateful decision to take Chris Christie’s advice and make Christopher Wray the FBI director.
Congress Must Act
We hear a lot these days about “Soros-funded prosecutors,” without any plan by congressional Republicans to haul the atheist billionaire into a hearing so his plans and contributions can be scrutinized. America’s first Marxist president, Barack Hussein Obama, was his crowning achievement.
It is safe to say that Soros has led the way in transforming and destroying the American system, a campaign articulated in public by Barack Hussein Obama upon assuming the presidency in 2008.
Soros backed Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry in his first major attempt to take control of the White House, back in 2004. Kerry went down to defeat, but Obama, backed by Soros in 2008, was a successful candidate. The financial crash in 2008 guaranteed his election.
Soros and his top economic adviser, Joseph Stiglitz, pushed for a global tax, a campaign adopted by Obama as a Senator when he had introduced a Global Poverty Act requiring $845 billion from the U.S.
More significant than the prosecutors are the sources of his money and the causes that Soros supports. This work is what made the election of the prosecutors possible.
Much of Soros’s wealth has been put into causes such as abortion rights, gay rights, drug legalization, voting rights for felons, transgenderism, euthanasia and rights for immigrants and prostitutes. Soros has also financed various Marxist groups, such as Critical Resistance, a group founded by communist Angela Davis and dedicated to abolishing prisons. Terrorist lawyer Lynne Stewart, sentenced to 10 years in prison for violating a prohibition on providing material support for foreign terrorism, received Soros support.
It was Stewart, who represented the “blind sheik,” terrorist cleric Omar Abdel-Rahman, who told the Marxist Monthly Review magazine that radical Islamists are “basically forces of national liberation.”
In this case, the details are important. The Soros-funded Open Society Institute gave this $20,000 grant in 2002 to the Lynne Stewart Defense Committee, run by Pat Levasseur of the National Lawyers Guild.
The National Lawyers Guild is an identified Communist Party USA front and an affiliate of the old Soviet front International Association of Democratic Lawyers.
In Baltimore, Maryland, the Open Society Institute in 2004 sponsored an event featuring Bernardine Dohrn, who had been a leader of the SDS and the Weather Underground. She had previously been an organizer for the National Lawyers Guild (NLG). “Bernardine represented a firm link between the guild and the SDS…” acknowledged Communist Party USA member and one-time NLG President Victor Rabinowitz in his book, Unrepentant Leftist.
The NLG honored Victor Rabinowitz, a member of the CPUSA and legal partner with Leonard Boudin, father of Weather Underground terrorist Kathy Boudin, member of the CPUSA, and registered agent of Communist Cuba. “I was a Marxist, a Leninist, and a socialist, and I believed that an organized movement was required to overthrow capitalism, which then, as now, was my ultimate purpose,” Rabinowitz had declared.
Until Congress subpoenas Soros personally and his financial and political records, we should not take their defense of Trump seriously.
For his part, Trump has to keep the heat on the atheist billionaire and his puppets. He simply cannot comply with an unconstitutional gag order from the judge in the case to restrict what he can say about the Soros operatives and communists trying to jail him.
