George Soros contributions to the US elections and his reaction after Trump’s shock win

According to the news by Politico, George Soros donated $6 million in December towards Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The money was handed over to the super PAC that was backing Hillary’s bid to the Whitehouse. The funding by George Soros was marked as the biggest ever in the American politics.

The $6 million donations totaled George Soros contributions to $8 million since he began supporting Hillary’s campaign back in 2015. According to a report that was filed by Super PAC, the campaign team had managed to raise $25 million during the second half of 2015. The 25 million US dollars brings PAC’s tally to 41 million US dollars for the whole of 2015.

Besides George Soros, other financiers of Clinton’s campaign during the second half of the year included Haim Saban who is a Hollywood mogul. He merged with his wife Cheryl Saban to raise three million US dollars towards Hillary’s campaigns on Others included Donald Sussman who gave $1.5 million and Herb Sandler who gave $1.5 million as well.

During the first half of the year, George Soros donated $1 million towards Priorities USA and another $1 million to American Bridge 21st century which was affiliated to super PAC. His total contribution makes Soros’ donations to stand out.

Soros has also taken part in the previous elections regarding funding political activities. In the year 2004, Soros donated over $20 million to a group that wanted to oust George Bush out of power. However, the plan was not successful, and Soros opted to check his massive expenditure in politics.

In the year 2012, George Soros donated $1 million to Priorities USA despite the intense courtship that was there. Priorities USA at that time was backing Obama’s re-election bid. It is also reported that in the same year George Soros told a close ally of Clinton that he regretted supporting Obama over Clinton during the 2008 primaries. Soros went ahead to applaud Clinton for allowing him to take part in discussing policies.

After Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, it was reported that George Soros held a closed-door meeting in Washington DC together with other liberals to plan on how to use the remaining campaign funds to fight back Trump’s presidency. The meeting is reportedly sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donors club. According to the agenda and documents obtained by POLITICO, participants of the conference include union leaders and liberal groups’ representatives on Others include Nancy Pelosi who is the head of the House Democratic, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Keith Ellison who is the co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Some sessions of the meeting will be focused on gearing up for elections in 2017 and 2018 while others plan on preventing Trump’s plans during his first 100 days in the Office. According to the agenda that was obtained by POLITICO, Trump’s plans are an assault to former President Obama’s achievements. The meeting will also be planning on how to protect Obamacare together with other pillars of former President Obama’s legacy. They will also strategize on how to win the working-class vote and also discussions on the importance of channeling funds to legislative battles in states where Republicans won big victories.

Tammy Mazzacco | We Hope The Ohio Real Estate Will See Steady Growth as Last Year

Since the year 2005, Ohio’s real estate market had been experiencing low growth, not until last year when things changed for the better. There was an impressive record of job creation last year. Perhaps, the reason that so many people had the access to financing to buy new homes. Another reason for the rise in sales can be attributed to the lower mortgage rates last year, which run at an average of 4.09% on a 3 decade fixed rate loan and 3.34% in the 15 year fixed-rate loan.

This year the real estate market is facing a challenge as the mortgage rates increase. The January prices have really gone up, something that is feared to adversely affect the sales. Also, there is the concern that supply is too low. According to most realtors, they do not have enough listings to satisfy the demand that keeps growing by day.

We hope that the year 2017 also favors us. Last year things looked up all through. Even when we thought that the winter would see a decline in sales, compared with the year 2015, things only got better. We sold more and we also gained more on the prices.

Thor Halvorssen Leads The Fight Against Oppression

The Scars Of Authoritarianism
Authoritarianism has an effect on the personal lives of everyone affected by it and nobody understands that better than Thor Halvorssen. He has personally seen his father arrested and his mother shot thanks to the oppressive regimes of the Venezuelan government. Although he himself has managed to escape an untimely fate by moving to America, his family is trapped in his birth country and remains there fighting for justice in a society where everything is stacked against them.

Standing Up For All
His experience with oppression led Thor Halvorssen to create the Human Rights Foundation. His work there is dedicated to finding ways to promote open societies and allow oppressed people a platform that will help them fight for their rights abroad. There are various ways he manages to accomplish this ranging from documentaries to simply staging protests. Regardless of how he approaches the situation Halvorssen is endangered by the causes he stands for. Dictators do not take kindly to those who would speak out against them and they have often threatened his life over his protests. Despite this danger he continues to stand up to oppressive regimes.

A Long Line Of Freedom Fighters
Perhaps the reason Thor Halvorssen feels such a strong need to fight for the rights of others is in his DNA. His mother and father were both activists who fought against the dictatorships of Venezuela and his cousins are also involved in fighting against the oppression there. Looking deeper into his family history you find plenty of stories of freedom fighters such as Simon Bolivar and others who wanted to make a better society for everyone. His fight for justice is just the latest in a long line of freedom fighters who have sought to make the world a better place.
