Soros Has a Pastor Close to Obama On His Payroll

The tangled web woven by George Soros served as a safety net for Barack Obama when he needed rescue from the exposure of Jeremiah Wright as an America-hating radical.

Green For All: Redistributing Wealth in the Name of the Environment

Founded in 2007, Green For All (GFA) was created by Van Jones to lobby for federal climate, energy, and economic policy initiatives. Joel Rogers, founder of the Apollo Alliance and the Emerald Cities Collaborative, also helped to establish GFA through his primary Wisconsin organization, COWS. Both Jones and Rogers are major players in the push for Cap and Trade legislation, and they have collaborated in an effort to transform America’s environmental policy. Jones also credits Majora Carter, founder of Sustainable South Bronx and a fellow at the MacArthur Foundation, for helping to launch GFA.

Van Jones’ projects have long been bankrolled by George Soros’ Open Society Institute, which gave $1 million to the Jones-founded Ella Baker Center before becoming a major donor to GFA. Along with Soros, a host of powerful progressive funders give money to GFA, including Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, the Rockefeller Family Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the New World Foundation, the Schwab Charitable Fund, the Streisand Foundation, the SEIU, the Tides Center and Foundation, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Ford Foundation, theNathan Cummings Foundation, the Overbrook Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, the Hewlett Foundation, the Urban Ecology Institute, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Wallace Global Fund.
