Soros Eyes the SC Obamacare Nullification Movement

GREENVILLE, S.C. | JOSHUA COOK | MAY 14, 2013 |

Last month, conservative grassroots activists helped pass Rep. Bill Chumley’s bill, the South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act, H.3101 which nullifies aspects of Obamacare.

After the SC House passed this historic bill, Jesse Graston a key grassroots leader said,

“The word is that the Senate thinks it is going to be dead in the water upon arrival there. It’s easy for them to feel so confident in that statement, when they have not yet felt the brunt of all the activism that the House had to endure for the past 3 months. We must be willing to fight for this bill all the way to the Governor’s desk. The only way we win, is by us being willing to be more passionate about defending our liberties, than the other side is about taking them. Let’s get back to work!”

Grassroots activists definitely won a battle last month, but will they win the war?

For many grassroots activists it has been a very difficult struggle.

sorosRecently, ThinkProgress, a left wing publication funded by George Soros attacked H.3101 as an “insidious new form of Obamacare Nullification.” According to the Tenth Amendment Center,

“The Soros-backed ThinkProgress is VERY upset about this part of the bill, because they know that if people don’t participate in the mandate, the federal act is done for.”

Not only have left wing organizations tried to stop the grassroots’ efforts, but many moderate Republican legislators have led the resistance also. After the SC House passed H.3101 to nullify Obamacare, over 70 representatives, including many Republicans, introduced a bill to expand Obamacare.

According the SC Policy Council, “The bill expressly states that the Department of Health and Human Services would create a new program – the Responsible Consumer Health Care Program H.4095 – funded “through Medicaid expansion funds provided pursuant to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.”

This audacious move by the House triggered red flags for the SC Policy Council (SCPC). Ashley Landess, President of SCPC, is concerned about the language in H.3101 that may give too much power to SC legislators. [See article here.]

 Leaders from the 10th Amendment Center and their legal team responded to the SCPC with an article detailing the ramifications of passing H.3101 or allowing it to fail. [See article here.]

Though H.3101 is not perfect, grassroots leaders know that H.3101 is the only option they have in stopping the State from implementing Obamacare. Grassroots activists are leading the nullification movement in full force and many in the SC Senate are on board.

“We owe it to the people of SC to get this bill to a vote after all the support they’ve shown,” Sen. Tom Corbin told Javan Browder, editor of Conservativefifty.com.

As reported by FitsNews.com, Sen. Tom Davis stated,“the SC Senate must concur. We’d better be up to the task or heads will roll.”

Last week Sen. Lee Bright said,

“It’s Thursday afternoon and were outside the Judiciary committee meeting on Ethics, but I wish we were having a finance committee meeting for H.3101 our bill to protect us from Obamacare. I urge you to call Senator Leatherman and pressure him to schedule a hearing for H.3101. I thank the House for all their great work on getting the bill passed, and I thank Bill Chumley for all his hard work. We’ve now got to ram it through sub-committee and full committee like we’ve done with so many other bills, we need to make this a priority. We need to keep moving and keep pushing. We got it through the House and now we need to get it through the Senate.

Throughout the US, conservative groups are trying to stop Obamacare from the negative effects it will have on the economy and in healthcare. Even top Democrats are distancing themselves, calling Obamacare a “Train Wreck!” According to the Washington Examiner, insurers predict 100%-400% Obamacare rate explosion.

In South Carolina, grassroots activists are taking no chances in defeating Obamacare and are planning a protest to urge Senator Leatherman to assign H.3101to a subcommittee and give it a hearing. (Protest events page.)

    George Soros Allies With the Muslim Brotherhood
    New reports indicate that leftist billionaire George Soros is working to forge alliances with the radical Muslim Brotherhood by means of his financial contributions through a number of shadow organizations. Those organizations include the International Crisis Group, the organization behind the Responsibility to Protect doctrine under which the United States entered into Libya.
    The Blaze also indicates that Soros’ connections to the Muslim Brotherhood can also be traced through his relationship to his new spokesman Marwan Muasher, as well as Mohamed ElBaradei, Muslim Brotherhood leader who sits on the board of Soros’ ICG. Muasher oversees research for the Middle East at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, funded by George Soros.

    The International Crisis Group has a number of questionable board members, notes World Net Daily, include Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser to Jimmy Carter, Samuel Berger, Bill Clinton’s national security adviser, and retired U.S. ambassador Thomas Pickering, who in 2009 met with Hamas leaders and called for the U.S. to open ties to Hamas. Additionally, Robert Malley serves on ICG’s board. He served on President Obama’s 2008 campaign but was forced to resign after it was revealed that he engaged in communications with Hamas.

    All three men have appeared publicly on a number of occasions to present the Muslim Brotherhood in a more positive light, and even went so far as to encourage the Egyptian government to cooperate with the group. All men are seemingly united under the common agenda to destroy the “Great Satan” (the United States) and “Little Satan” (Israel).

    The Blaze reports:

    Consistently referring to Israel as the “stumbling block” to peace in the Middle East, Soros makes no bones about his hopes for the Brotherhood. He even heartily encouraged giving the Muslim Brotherhood a place at Egypt‘s table when the country’s streets erupted into flames of dissent earlier this year.

    Likewise, FrontPageMag.com makes a number of notable connections:

    The numerous ties of Soros and his Shadow Party cohorts have been documented; they include the master puppeteer’s own Open Society Institute and various anti-Western Islamist groups in the revolutions. It has been confirmed, for instance, that the International Crisis Group (ICG), led in part by Soros, has long petitioned for the Egyptian government to “normalize” ties with the previously banned Brotherhood — for example, in a June 2008 report called “Egypt’s Muslim Brothers: Confrontation or Integration?” And this talking point is echoed by Brian Katulis, senior fellow at the Soros-funded Center for American Progress: “Any real democratic opening would lead to greater participation of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood in a future Egyptian government.”

    Soros has not been so subtle regarding his sympathies for the Muslim Brotherhood. In February, he prepared an opinionated piece for the Washington Post dismissing American and Israeli fears over the unrest in Egypt, and even asserted that the rebels in Egypt did not seek to advance a theocratic agenda. He then continued his editorial by praising the Muslim Brotherhood for its efforts to topple Mubarak’s regime.

    What’s most ironic is that the Muslim Brotherhood would not support Soros’ vision for a one-world government.

    But The Blaze ponders, “Perhaps he just sees the alliance as an opportunity to side against his enemies the U.S. and Israel.

    George Soros Gave $6.1 Million To Groups That Pressured IRS To Target Conservatives

    Another tidbit of information since the release of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration report, confirming that the IRS targeted conservative groups such as “Tea Party, Patriot and 9/12″ groups, among others, delaying their applications in some cases for over two years, asking highly “inappropriate” questions and delaying their approval process, leaving them in limbo as they fast tracked liberal applications..

    Liberal billionaire George Soros has reported given $6.1 million to groups and organizations that pressured IRS to target conservatives non-profits.

    Via CNS News:

    While the first reported instances of extra IRS scrutiny for conservative groups began in Cincinnati in March of 2010, the attacks began to gain momentum on a national level soon after Soros-funded groups began firing off letters to the IRS in October of that year – following the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.

    The talking points of these groups then bounced around a carefully created progressive “echo chamber,” until they eventually made their way into established media outlets. Key IRS policy changes about how it investigated conservative groups took place soon after it received three separate letters sent by Soros-funded liberal organizations.

    Several Soros-funded groups including the Campaign Legal Center, Democracy 21, the Center for Public Integrity, Mother Jones and Alternet have worked to pressure the IRS to target conservative nonprofit groups. The subsequent IRS investigation flagged more than 100 tea party-related applications for higher scrutiny, including applications that included the words “Tea Party” and “patriot.”

    The IRS scandal can be traced back to a series of letters that the liberal groups Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and Democracy 21 sent to the IRS back in 2010 and 2011. Both groups were funded by George’s Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The CLC received $677,000 and Democracy 21 got $365,000 from the Soros-backed foundation, according to the Foundation’s 990 tax forms.
