Who is George Soros? ... I try not to use the word “frightening” often, but if one man (George Soros), can rig elections against certain politicians that piss him off, then we may be in more trouble than we realize. Just ask Norm Coleman. "Norm Coleman was the chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations and as such took a leading role in uncovering and investigating the United Nations oil-for-food scandal. Coleman was the leader in the Senate when it came to scrutinizing the operations of the United Nations; he appeared frequently in the media. The United Nations had never before come under such public criticism in the Senate. The mandarins and their fellow travelers were made very uncomfortable by the work of Senator Coleman." And diplomatic-immunity UN leeches don’t like their opulent lives being made uncomfortable. "This scandal involved not just negligence of the UN officials that set up and monitored the program (which immeasurably helped keep Saddam Hussein in power and, in a sense, helped create the conditions for the invasion of Iraq), but also involved corruption that reached the highest levels at the United Nations. Coleman was dogged in his pursuit of the wrongdoers at the UN. The investigation tarnished the image of Mark Malloch Brown (UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s deputy and right-hand man at the UN) who was seen as spinning away any culpability of Annan and the UN itself in this travesty of a program. Coleman thereby clearly earned the wrath of George Soros, for the ties between Brown and Soros are tight and seemingly mutually beneficial." It’s about time George Soros’ name achieved “household” status. (canadafreepress.com)

Chávez threatens U.S. over Term Limits ... President Hugo Chávez said Saturday he may expel a top U.S. Embassy official for allegedly plotting against his government from Puerto Rico. Venezuela's socialist leader said he has information that leaders of the political opposition were meeting with U.S. advisers in Puerto Rico to discuss how to prevent a referendum on term limits from passing. "I'm investigating the possible presence of a U.S. Embassy official in Caracas at this meeting," said Chávez, without naming the official. "If I confirm it, I will throw him out of the country." The referendum -- which may take place as early as February -- could allow Chávez to run for re-election indefinitely. (kansas.com)

Communist tradition celebrated in U.S. backyard ... Presidents Raul Castro and Rafael Correa today visited the facilities that hosted the headquarters of Commander Ernesto Che Guevara during the historic battle of Santa Clara, December 1958. Both heads of state were briefed on the statue of Che, which bears a child on his arms and that was donated by Spanish sculptor Casto Solano. The statue is located in the garden of the provincial office of the Cuban Communist Party. Rafael Correa and Raul Castro met with government and Communist Party official in Santa Clara and also visited the sculpture complex dedicated to the revolutionary action to derail an armored train, which was crucial to take over the city of Santa Clara. First Communist Party Secretary in the province Omar Ruiz Martin gave President Correa two paintings with images of commanders Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos, made by artist Adela Sarduy. Also present were the delegation accompanying President Rafael Correa, and Cuban Revolution commander Ramiro Valdes, Division Generals Ramon Pardo Guerra and Rogelio Acevedo, who were part of the guerrilla headed by Che Guevara.

European Leftists, Anarchists commemorate Communist martyrs ... As Germany begins a year thick with commemorations, tens of thousands of German leftists gathered Sunday to recall two revolutionaries who were murdered in 1919. Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, founders of the German Communist Party, were killed by rightist soldiers in the early days of the Weimar Republic and are seen by the left as martyrs. Two separate marches were organized at the Socialist Monument in Berlin's Friedrichsfelde Cemetery. The main body was from the Left Party, which claims descent from the Communist Party, and the Socialist Unity Party of East Germany, which has seats in the German parliament. The other group comprised far-leftists and anarchists. (earthtimes.org)
