Is Russia Manipulating Republican Attacks on George Soros?

In this recent article on the Politico website, it’s alleged Russia is leading the anti-George Soros positions of some Republicans.

The two groups both perceive George Soros as an enemy. Though whether or not that makes them allies in the old-fashioned “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” point of view is open to debate. Republican lawmakers Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Representative Chris Smith of New Jersey have accused Soros of using his philothranpic spending to support his liberal political causes.

According to a letter the two politicians wrote on March 14 to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Soros is using his Open Society Foundations to further his leftwing, progressive agenda in Europe. Politico says that line comes from Moscow. During the Cold War, Soros did support anti-communist groups in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union that pressed for political freedom. The current government in Moscow views Soros’s continued support for civil groups as a plot to turn the former communist countries into pro-Western democracies that would oppose Moscow and its positions.

The Politico writer acknowledges that Soros’s efforts to promote democracy and get rid of corruption in Eastern Europe and Russia are aligned with traditional Republican positions. And traditional Republicans did have reason to oppose George Soros on American domestic issues. Soros has supported many Democratic political candidates.

However, the post-Trump victory Republican parties are more nationalist. And therefore some nationalist politicians in Eastern Europe are seeking more international support for their own campaigns against Soros and the many foundations he funds.

The two Republican lawmakers are now focused on Macedonia and, to some extent, Albania. Macedonia is going through a political crisis where a rightwing party is contending for power with a leftwing party. Is the United States funding one group over another by funding a Soros-aligned group in that country?

The president of the Open Society Foundations, Chris Stone, has expressed the opinion that the election of President Trump encourages autocratic regimes to resist the reforms that the Open Society Foundations try to bring. Learn more on Discover the Networks about George Soros.

Meanwhile, Russia is trying to use the political turnoil in Macedonia to increase their influence in that country. The letter the two Republican lawmakers wrote gave them a propaganda victory. The State Department denies that they have taken sides in Macedonia’s political crisis. (Macedonia was part of the former Yugoslavia.)

The State Department does acknowledge that USAID gave three grants to Foundation Open Society – Macedonia over the past 15 years. Those are mainly to support iniatives to education the country’s Roma population. The Open Society Foundation has said it has worked with over the past 15 years with independent organizations to support human rights, accountability and good government in the country.

What has Dick Devos Been up to?

Dick and Betsy Devos are well known in the area around Michigan for several reasons. Dick Devos was the candidate for the gubernatorial seat for the state of Michigan in the year 2006. While he lost the race to the Democratic candidate, this haven’t prevented him from making donations to the Republican Party and charitable causes around the area. Since they married almost four decades ago, the Devos family has made a contribution of $139 million for various causes. According to reports obtained from the Internal Revenue Service, the Devos family made a contribution of $15 million to charitable causes in the Michigan area. As for political donations, the family made donations worth $5.3. However, they have been criticized in the past that the charitable donations are a cover up for the outsized political donations they make to the Republican Party.

 

The Devos family is the 24th most generous family in the USA having given away a quarter of their wealth. Recent reports show that the family has given away $1.33 billion for the last 50 years. The family is worth $5.2 billion. Betsy Devos also comes from a generous family from Netherlands known as the Edgar Prince family. However, with the DeVos family donation, there is a trend where they put much emphasis on the education sector. Of the 15 million they donated to charitable causes, 26 percent went to education. Their dedication to the education sector was what led to Betsy Devos being appointed the secretary of education. The Devos family realizes that a lot has to be done to change the education sector in the United States. The family also involves their children in these donations, something they say is a deliberate move that they have discussed with their children.

 

The family does not discriminate on private and public schools as they fund all schools. Some of the institutions that have received their funding include Rehoboth Christian School in New Mexico, Northwood University where Dick Devos schooled, and Detroit Charter School Company New Urban Learning. Other institutions that have benefited from their funding include Ferris State University, Compass College of Cinematic Arts in Grand Rapids and Potter’s House from Wyoming.

 

Dick Devos has been involved with his family business since he was a child. He is the son of Richard Devos who owns Amway Group and Orlando Magic. On official capacity, he began his involvement with the Amway Group in 1974. During this period, he has occupied different positions such as senior vice president and chief executive officer following the resignation of his father.

 

Other than education, the Devos Family makes donations in other sectors such as arts and leadership. Other sectors that the family focuses on include health and human services, public policy and churches.

Squaw Valley Issues Water Quality Statement

In early November, E. Coli and coliform bacteria were discovered in the drinking water of Squaw Valley’s upper mountain. Since then, Squaw Valley has been working closely with Placer County Environmental Health both to resolve the issue and to ensure that skiers can continue to safely use the facilities in the meantime.

 

Their efforts have seen results. A water quality report shows no E. Coli and a very low level of coliform bacteria in three out of four drinking wells. Restaurants remain closed but skiers are provided with bottled water and are able to ski as usual.

 

Squaw valley released a statement on November 30th with details about the issue. It states that the issue came from an “unusually heavy rainstorm” that overloaded a recently upgraded system. The combination of unexpected weather and a new, untested system led to the contamination of the water. It reassures readers that the contamination was detected during routine water testing and that contaminated water was never made available for public consumption. The statement ends saying that customer safety is “paramount to (Squaw Valley)” and that the issue is being taken “very seriously.” In the meantime, skiers are being provided with bottled water and are still allowed full access to facilities. As soon as experts verify that the water is clean and safe to drink, access to drinking water will be restored.

 

While E. Coli and coliform are dangerous contaminants, Squaw Valley is handling the situation in the safest way possible. They are working hard to make the water safe for consumption and to make sure that customers can ski with minimal interruption until repairs are made. Squaw valley will be issuing an update when the water is safe.
