Although there are many hundreds of donors to political parties across Europe and America, we will focus today on the 4 major players who will shape the outcome of the upcoming mid-term elections in America. This should give you an idea of how politicians all over the west are bought, paid for and sold by mega-donors.

George Soros

After going undercover during World War 2 and surviving the Siege of Budapest, this Jewish man decided to wreak misery and havoc upon the world. Mving from Europe to America where, after working for several businesses, Soros started to work for himself and became one of the world’s leading financiers. He broke the Bank of England in 1992, caused a financial crisis in East Asia in the late 1990s, before turning his attention to funding the so-called ‘color revolutions’ in the 2000s.

In August 2016, hacked documents from his Open Society Foundation revealed his intention to enlarge the American electorate by 10 million people, just in time for the 2018 midterm elections. The documents also revealed that Soros intended to use lawsuits to either overturn or block voter ID legislation. As of today, these efforts have had mixed results, with the now conservative-leaning Supreme Court offering strong opposition to his parasitical behavior.

Soros’s prominence is so large in globalist circles that he regularly has one-to-one meetings with heads of states behind closed doors. This privilege is weaponized through his tyrannical efforts to open the borders of countries to mass immigration, something which he funds to the tune of billions of dollars through his Open Society Foundation. Some of the other NGOs that he funds include: Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Media Matters for America, Clinton Foundation, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Best for Britain.

The Koch Brothers

These two repugnant individuals are largely to blame for the Republican Party’s support for free market neoliberalism. They are self-styled open border libertarians, and they are intent on cramming as many cheap workers into America as they possibly can.

The Koch Brothers provided the initial funding to the Cato Institute, and are major donors to the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation. They also work very hard to block any legislation designed to curb emissions or slow down climate change, via their Institute for Energy Research.

Their main focus is currently centered on supporting DACA recipients and opposing the Trump Administration’s policy of cutting legal immigration. Not only do they support the refugee lottery system, but they also favor a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, and want to increase legal immigration by the millions. According to recent estimates, the Koch brothers’ network is likely to spend around $400 million on Republican candidates in the 2018 mid-term elections.

Their influence has also snuck into the education system, where they keep close contact with neoliberal professors. Since 2009, they have even designed and implemented a course which teaches high school students about global capitalism and open border libertarianism. As school budgets face cuts and come under pressure for funding, more and more education authorities are turning to private sector alternative curriculums such as those offered by the Kochs. It has also been alleged in recent years that the brothers have a say in choosing teachers and Professors at certain schools in a bid to build up a network of educators who sympathize with their views.

Tom Steyer

A Yale graduate who is now a hedge fund manager and environmentalist, Steyer is a leading donor to the Democrat party. Steyer has heavily funded both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. He is currently leading the campaign to impeach President Donald Trump, and he reportedly spent $10 million on a single television advert for this cause. During the 2014 election cycle, he spent an incredible $100 million on Democratic Party candidates and has also been a leading opponent of the Keystone Pipeline.

He is a strong supporter of mass immigration and funds various organizations all over America which provide support to illegal immigrants. Indeed, his immigration beliefs are so hardcore that earlier this year he refused to fund the three main arms of the Democrat Party, simply because they compromised with Trump to avoid a government shutdown.

Steyer’s recent activities include a large campaign to encourage Latinos to turn out and vote, a cause which George Soros and actress Eva Longoria have assisted him with. Over the next six months, Steyer plans to spend over $110 million on leftist candidates, creating infrastructure, polling, analytics, and staffing in time to fight the 2018 mid-term elections.

Sheldon Adelson

Worth $43.4 billion, the casino mogul Adelson is the 16th wealthiest person in the world, and he is largely responsible for the Republican Party’s support for Israel. Adelson himself owns an Israeli newspaper, Israel Hayom, and has huge resorts in both Las Vegas and Singapore. His ancestry is both British and Jewish, and he has always meandered between the two nations.
During the December 2015 Republican Debate, held at Adelson’s Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, he reportedly held one-to-one meetings with several of the candidates, who bid for his support and money. This whole episode was dubbed the Adelson Primary and is a testament to his power over the Republican Party. Adelson later backed Trump on the 13th May 2016 and pledged $100 million dollars to his campaign.

He is also a clinical tactician, as was recently demonstrated when he funded Republicans in tight races who had opposed the Iran deal, whilst ignoring Republicans in tight races who had supported the Iran deal. With regards to the up and coming mid-term elections, he has already pledged $30 million to a Super PAC, with speculation that there is more funding to come. Since Donald Trump was inaugurated, Adelson has met with President Trump at the White House to discuss policy, and this should come as no surprise to anyone.

I hope these four examples above give you a good idea of the maneuvering which goes on behind the scenes during an election campaign. Consequently, it is always important to ask a certain question when a politician does something:

"Who’s pulling the puppet-strings and paying them to do it?"
