WHO IS GEORGE SOROS? The left-leaning billionaire has his hands in more than you know By Kalee Brown Colletive Evolution


eorge Soros’ current net worth is $23 billion. After selling his company, Soros Fund Management, in 2000, he’s been focusing on his “humanitarian effortsâ€? through his philanthropic Open Society Foundations (OSF). Soros started making strategic political donations to essentially fund revolutions in different European countries and made a fortune amidst the chaos. He also made a killing off European forced migration and other colour revolutions. Anonymous targeted Soros for his link to the conflict in the Ukraine, as he was partially responsible for the Western-led coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine. Soros is well-known for financing and donating heavily to “leftâ€? groups, as he played a hand in creating the Black Lives Matter and Women’s March movements. Don’t get me wrong — I’m a strong advocate for equality and am happy to see people supporting one another. However, Soros’ investments in anti-discrimination movements seem to be politically driven, intent on stirring up conflict. He’s also played a vital role in many

of the lawsuits against Trump’s newest policies (not that I support many of them, at all). The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) started filing lawsuits against Trump’s executive orders, and ever since then their donations have skyrocketed, totalling over $24 million in one weekend, which is approximately six times the organization’s average annual donations. Soros’s Open Society Institute has donated over $35 million to the ACLU alone and millions more to other liberal organizations willing to file lawsuits against the Trump administration’s policies. Read more about that in our CE article here. He also uses OSF to funnel money into Media Matters, which directly contributes to mainstream media outlets such as NBC and the New York Times, so he plays a role in manipulating MSM and the way in which politics is reported.

STEPHENS READIES FOR BOUT WITH ALDO Chula Vista UFC fighter coming off three straight wins By Art Garcia Jr. MilitaryPress


f you don’t get enough fireworks on Independence Day, there will be plenty of explosive action on July 28 when former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo faces Jeremy Stephens in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 30. Looking to rebound from the first losing streak of his 30-fight career, Aldo (26-4) is currently ranked No. 2 in the featherweight division despite losing three of his last four fights. In his prime, Aldo was widely regarded as the top pound-forpound fighter in the world while riding an 18-fight winning streak when he reigned as the champion of the UFC and the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) promotions at 145 pounds. Ranked No. 4 in the featherweight division, Stephens (28-14), is quickly climb-

GEORGE WASHINGTON ON TRIAL FOR TREASON New novel takes alternative look at colonial history By Elise Cooper MilitaryPress

“The Trial and Execution of the Traitor George Washington� by Charles Rosenberg is a great Fourth of July novel. Anyone who feels a sense of patriotism will want to read this gripping story about America’s General, George Washington. The suspense ratchets up as readers wonder what will happen to one of America’s greatest heroes. This thought-provoking alternative history book takes place in the midst of the American Revolution. An English plot to kidnap Gen. George Washington brings him overseas to England and puts him on trial as a traitor. But some, like British Prime Minister Frederick North, want to use him as a bargaining chip to put an end to a very costly war. British special agent Col. Jeremiah Black, an officer of the King’s Guard, is

assigned the task of landing on a deserted beach in late November 1780. Aided by “Loyalist� Americans, he is able to sprint Washington aboard the HMS Peregrine. Upon their arrival, Washington is imprisoned in the Tower of London to await trial on charges of high treason.

reparing for 2 1/2 weeks in Switzerland took time and careful coordination. Here’s the blueprint of my Swiss adventure and, hopefully, useful for any journey. Getting There - Always look for the quickest route with the fewest stops. The good news for San Diego residents (like me): Edelweiss Airlines has seasonal nonstop flights to Zurich, beginning in May and ending in November. What could be easier? For their complete schedule and cities served, logon to www.FlyEdelweiss. com. The Big Picture - Next, decide which areas to cover and how to get around. The Grand Train Tour of Switzerland stretches over eight different routes, including the four distinct regions of Switzerland (Swiss, German, French, and Italian). Swiss trains are world famous for being on time as they glide through (and up) some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The Swiss Travel Pass is a must. It’s available to purchase in 3, 4, 8, or 15 day increments. This all-in-one ticket allows travel by rail, bus, and boat throughout the whole country, free entry to over 500 museums, and

Remember, it’s a small country only 1.5 times larger than the Dallas/Fort Worth area; everything is within reach in a few hours. After landing in Zurich, the plan was to head directly to Schaffhausen (site of the largest waterfall in Europe) and spend the night. From that point, each stop was usually for two nights/three days. St. Gallen was the next city to visit, followed by Lucerne, Interlaken, Geneva, Lausanne, Montreux, Lugano, Pontresina, and winding up back in Zurich. The best place for travel information is www.

Soldiers compete to be ‘best’ By Sgt. Fatima Konteh U.S. Army Central

CAMP ARIFJAN, Kuwait – The U.S. Army Central Soldiers Best Warrior Competition is an annual event overseen by USARCENT and subordinate units as a means of identifying and recognizing soldiers who demonstrate a commitment to the Army values, embody the Warrior Ethos, and represent the force of the future. Soldiers were chosen from ARCENT’s area of responsibility. Each year participating commands send their best enlisted soldier and noncommissioned officer to Camp Arifjan to represent their unit. This is the 17th year that the USARCENT Best Warrior Competition has been held at Camp Arifjan. During the competition, competitors are tested for their aptitude through board interviews, physical fitness tests, written exams, obstacle courses, and other soldier tasks and drills relevant to the Army’s operating environment. Sixteen Soldiers participated in the competition which promotes morale and cohesion among Soldiers, and reinforces the importance of individual excellence. Day one included the Army Physical Fitness Test, 100-meter swim, five lanes of warrior skills testing and a 6-mile ruck march. “Competitions like this include the physical aspect, mental part of it, and the hands-on portion, so overall I think it’s a great event for Soldiers to maintain their combat readiness,â€? said U.S. Army 1st Sgt. James B. Kerney IV with the 202nd Military Police Company. The second day’s events spanned 17 hours and started with a timed run through a grueling obstacle course, qualify with the M-9 pistol and M-16 rifle using the Engagement Skills Training system, and ended with a night land navigation course. “The obstacle course was physically demanding,â€? said U.S. Army Sgt. Nigel A. Charles, a military policeman, assigned to Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve. “The terrain, as well as the heat and the wind blow8 +VMZ

ing sand in your face just made it harder.â€? The third and final day comprised of an 8-event physical fitness circuit, timed reflective essay, complex board appearance and finished with the awards presentation. The circuit included box jumps, push press, burpees, shuttle sprint, goblet squats, the rower machine, and bench press. After each exercise, the Soldiers had to answer questions covering warrior tasks and battle drills. Charles stated, “the Army has always emphasized overwhelming the enemy with devastating strength, and you can’t do that with lack of readiness, you have to strengthen the force, and they always have to be ready to go.â€? Following the circuit events, competitors were tested on their ability to effectively communicate life experiences through a reflective essay. “I’ve continued my education and had to write numerous papers thus far, so it just came down to learning and understanding the Army style of writing and adapting to it on the fly,â€? said Charles. The final event of the competition was the board appearance to assess the Soldiers’ demeanor, professionalism, and overall Army knowledge. While sitting in front of five U.S. Army senior enlisted Non-Commissioned Officers, the Soldiers had to maintain their military bearing and answer hand-picked questions without any hesitation. â€œWe have a saying back in Fort Hood, Texas, with the 410th Military Police Company, ‘we do it all, Bravo Spirit’,â€? Charles said. “And what that means to me is no matter what it is, you adapt to it, and you overcome which applies to all aspects of the Army.â€? The USARCENT Best Warrior Competition concluded with the award presentation. U.S. Army National Guardsman Sgt. Zachary Green, an intelligence analyst with the 38th Sustainment Brigade, was named the 2018 USARCENT Noncommissioned Officer Best Warrior. â€œI’m very honored, pretty excited, and relieved that it’s over,â€? said Green.

world’s best technologies and our access to knowledge and information. Earlier this month, Google announced one of its latest technologies, “Cross Check,â€? which will supposedly help identify fake news. I wonder if this will actually be the case, or if this will be a similar situation to the Snopes and Facebook censorship. It’s easy to imagine how this form of censorship would benefit Soros. Netflix, on the other hand, was a relatively questionable investment to make at the end of 2015. Although the stock price had seen an upswing of 20 percent over the course of a month at the time, Netflix’s entire business model was so innovative that it couldn’t really be considered a “sure thing.â€? Nevertheless, Soros decided to invest millions into Netflix, a decision that paid off big time. Netflix announced that the company turned over $8.29 billion from streaming alone in 2016, which is a 35.2 percent increase from 2015. The question here is: How much control does he get over what the company produces? The answer very well could be none. However, after Netflix released the documentary The White Helmets, I began to question that. Disguised as an incredible tale of real-life heroes saving innocent Syrian civilians, the film ended up being pure propaganda. The group’s acting skills turned out to be far more impressive than their humanitarian efforts. They have been caught falsifying photographs, recycling footage of children, and literally faking scenes of them saving “civilians,â€? forcing one to wonder if the movie was even a documentary at all, or entirely staged. Furthermore, the group is heavily funded by the U.S., the UK, and other countries in Europe, despite the fact that they deny accepting funding from any interested parties. It’s clear that the U.S. has vested interests in the Syrian war, since they’re selling arms to both the terrorist groups and non-terrorists. The White Helmets also claim to be neutral and unarmed, which is far from the truth. As independent journalist Vanessa Beeley explains, “If we look at their claims to be neutral, they are embedded entirely in terroristheld areas whether it is predominantly Al-Nusra Front or ISIS or any of the various associated brigades of terrorists that take their command very much from Al-Nusra Front, that is where White Helmets are exclusively.â€? Beeley continues, “They’ve been filmed participating and facilitating an execution of a civilian in Aleppo. They post celebratory videos to their social media pages of the execution of civilian Arab soldiers.â€? So, Netflix has most North Americans thinking that the White Helmets are a group of heroic, peaceful knights saving Syrians, when in reality they’ve been referred to as terrorists themselves, and even a “shadow governmentâ€? — represented by the U.S., the UK, and other countries — in the making. You can read more about the White Helmets in our CE article here. If you’re familiar with the details of Soros’ role in the Ukraine conflict, all of this seems extremely questionable. Why would Netflix voluntarily create a documentary spreading propaganda? Well, I’m not sure why Netflix would, but it’s easier to envision why Soros would. Mainstream media tends to demonize Russia in regards to the Syrian war, which is exactly what Soros would want. You could say that Soros has a long-standing grudge against Russia, in part because they kicked out Soros’ company, OSF. “It was found that the activity of the Open Society Foundations and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation represents a threat to the foundations of the constitutional system of the Russian Federation and the security of the state,â€? a translated version of a Russian press statement read. Soros has been extremely outspoken on Russia’s crimes against humanity in Syria, even though some of those news stories were falsified. You can also read a document here that includes notes from an OSF meeting about Russia that was released in the DC Leaks. Netflix also got a ton of backlash regarding their series â€œDear White People.â€? The title sort of says it all: It’s an attempt to provide insight into racial segregation, even though the title itself promotes separatism. There’s no telling if Soros was involved in any way, but perhaps he would’ve supported it since it has his infamous “activism that actually promotes separatismâ€? branding all over it. Soros’ investments here could be well-intended, but given his vast history of profiting off chaos, it’s easy to imagine him having an ulterior motive or a hidden agenda. Regardless of his intentions, I encourage you to always think critically about what you’re looking at. It’s difficult to distinguish what is fake news and what isn’t, so it’s crucial that we don’t just take things at face value anymore. Most importantly, follow your intuition, and learn to trust it!

A couple of rednecks went on vacation in Colorado. They flew to Denver and rented a car to sight see. One of the sights was a bridge that was more than 1,000 feet above the river.

Blonde bet

Bob, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 p.m. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV. The 10 p.m. news was coming on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump. The blonde looked at Bob and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?� Bob says, “You know, I bet he’ll jump.� The blonde replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.� Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, “You’re on!� Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy on the ledge did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20 to Bob, saying, “Fair’s fair. Here’s your money.� Bob replied, “I can’t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 6 p.m. news and so I knew he would jump.� The blonde replied, “I saw it too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.�

Two guys and a union worker were fishing on a lake one day, when Jesus walked across the water and joined them in the boat. When the three astonished men had settled down enough to speak, the first guy asked, humbly, “Jesus, I’ve suffered from back pain ever since I took shrapnel in the Vietnam War...could you help me?� “Of course, my son,� Jesus said, and when he touched the man’s back, he felt relief for the first time in years. The second man, who wore very thick glasses and had a hard time reading and driving, asked if Jesus could do anything about his eyesight. Jesus smiled, removed the man’s glasses and tossed them in the lake.

STEPHENS Continued from Page 2

let alone just in life. I think Charles Darwin said it best when he said, “It is not the smartest or the strongest, it is the person that is willing to adapt to change that will survive the longest.â€? You have to be constantly growing, getting better and once I cut ties with a lot of bullshit I wasn’t at tug-of-war with myself. It allowed me to go in there and handle my job with a clear free mind and react the way that I do knowing I’m in tremendous shape and I have experience in the bank. AG: You also mentioned in the video that sometimes you can see fear in an opponents eyes. Did you see that in Josh Emmitt or any other opponent you have fought? JS: I’ve seen it in a lot of people ‌ it’s just something that I have that’s always in my back pocket. When I hit people it’s a different feel and people think they have a grip on it but I know when I hit people, no matter where it lands — whether its on the arms or elbow, you’re going to feel it. And that’s always in their mind, like “Damn, I don’t want to get hit by one of those.â€? So I can see it when I do land one on people, like the one (I landed) on Emmitt — either they go out or they go into a place where I can just keep attacking like a barrage. I have that killer instinct like a shark — once it smells blood I’m just gong to rip and try to tear you to pieces until the ref

pulls me off. I’m there to do my job and that’s my style, its pretty raw. AG: What athlete did you admire growing up? JS: I would have to say Mike Tyson was one of the first guys that I watched that I could relate to right away. Growing up when I started watching UFC tapes it was Vitor Belfort, how he would devastate people and explode on them with pure athleticism, aggression and heart. I could really relate to that, but I do it naturally. Ringside: Stephens began his amateur career at 16 and started training full-time by 18 years of age. Making his promotional debut in the UFC in 2007, the 31-year-old Stephens has earned nine UFC performance bonuses including five Fight of the Night awards since losing that opening bout. Although 19 of his 28 wins have come via knockout, Stephens believes his all around skills as a mixed martial artist will conquer any strategy his opponents bring into the ring. Said Stephens, “I’m pretty confident every time I get in there that if we’re going to exchange or you’re going to try to implement a game plan that I have a solution to all of your problems. You know there’s not a spot or situation that I really haven’t been in inside the octagon — I’m comfortable there and I’m dialed in. And I’m there to execute. I’m there to take you out and I’m there to take you out at all cost. I’m dangerous for anybody and it’s always just one punch away from it being sweet dreams.�

WASHINGTON Continued from Page 4

thought he would be like Napoleon. I put in the historical notes how the British King George III said if Washington returns to his farm, “he will be the greatest man in the world.� Think about it, Washington gave up power twice, as leader of the military and as leader of this country. He had tremendous accomplishments. EC: You also include Benedict Arnold? CR: His name still conjures up bad connotations. I ran with the feeling that he is a traitor who had very little loyalty to anyone. He did take a reduction in rank when he moved to the British side, which is mentioned during the scenes of the crossexamination. I found a document called “The General Orders of The Army� and one particular one said the name of Benedict Arnold should be struck from the United States Army, basically writing him out of history. I also wanted to show Washington’s

disdain for him, which is why I put in the book, his “face was red and his lips were compressed in a hard line. It was perhaps a good thing that the General was being guarded by soldiers. The look on his face suggested he might otherwise leap out of his dock and throttle the witness with his bare hands.� EC: Washington seemed to straddle the fine line about the king. Consider these quotes, “My effort was and is to defeat the British Army. I have never thought the King was truly our personal enemy,� and “He is perhaps your sovereign, but he is no longer mine. He has forfeited the right.� CR: This is in itself an interesting topic. If the colonists were going to achieve independence they have to undue the sovereignty to which they pledged. They attacked the King in the Declaration of Independence. This really upset George III because he considered himself a Constitutional Monarch who had to support the laws passed by Parliament. The core of the colonists’ dispute was their feeling that they had no say in the English government’s policies. But that was also true of many Englishmen who did not have the right to vote unless they were landowners. Parliament kept responding that they always take everyone’s interest at heart when deciding laws, but the colonists did not have any representation regarding what was done to them. Eventually, North was willing to acquiesce to independence, but not in writing.

travel products. Eagle Creek: The Lumbar and Neck Pillows keep me comfortable on the plane and trains. They offer everything related to luggage and packing accessories. Brooks Running Shoes: Although better known for running, Levitate is my choice from many models for walking and/or light hiking. Craghoppers: The Vertex windbreaker and Kiwi Ranger hat will keep me warm, dry, and provide sun protection. Kleen Kanteen: Since hiking is on the agenda, proper hydration is essential. This is my go-to company for high quality, insulated and durable water bottles, cups, tumblers, and food canisters. Chico Bag: Their Travel Pack is my

lightweight daypack. Unused, it folds up into its built-in small pouch. This trip, VITA is traveling with me. It’s a full-size, shoulder length shopping bag that fits in my pocket. www.ChicoBag. com myCharge: The HubPlus portable charger is a necessity.

This was unacceptable to Washington the Battle of Yorktown. I think given the and others because what Parliament gave chance George III would have wanted could be taken away and then the colonists Washington executed. EC: How would you describe Ethan Abwould have no recourse. EC: You also examine how the “rules of bott? CR: A retired soldier who was a real Pawar� impact the issue: Are the US colonies in rebellion and therefore subject to triot. He answers the call of his country. EC: What do you want the readers to charges of treason, or are they a separate country; thus, Washington should be get out of the story? CR: An entertaining story. But also, to treated as a prisoner of war? CR: These were actual arguments at the learn about the Revolution as an event time. Washington would argue he was a that centered on real politics. I hope they prisoner of war, and that under the laws get into the details on how America’s Inof war, he must be released at the end of dependence became such a great triumph.
