The Supreme Court ruled against the right of Free Speech for international companies, which hit the Soros group Alliance for Open Society International, Inc. While the ruling is in regards to federal funding, the implications that could trickle out from this decision should be strongly considered.
Alliance for Open Society International, Inc is a foreign subsidiary of the Open Society Foundations publicly owned by George Soros. This foundation is responsible for funneling massive campaign contributions to Democrat candidates throughout the United States.
Ultimately, what the ruling has done is set the precedent to limit or eliminate avenues of political contribution by declaring that foreign affiliates do not have constitutionally protected free speech. Citizens United v FEC has declared that political contributions are classified as free speech, and without first amendment considerations they may no longer be protected in political contributions.
As it stands today, foreign corporations are not able to donate directly to a campaign, but are able to invest by contribution to Political Action Committees, or PACs. For example, Alliance for Open Society International, Inc funnels money as a donor to Center for Popular Democracy, who in turn provides support for proposals such as the Green New Deal, and support for Black Lives Matter. They also further distribute the cash flow into other non-profits.
This effectively operates as a form of legal political money laundering. The amount of foreign cash flowing into the American political system simply can’t be tracked. With the Supreme Court throwing this hit directly at the Soros organization, we need a challenge that looks at money flowing into the country rather than out of it.
Newt Gingrich was recently silenced on Fox News for daring to mention the money flowing into politics from George Soros. It is far too late to stop any influence in the 2020 election, but the next local race will be right around the corner.
