He has been linked to another scandalous story. The Lancet published a study in 2006 claimed that the death toll in Iraq was 655,000. There were several things that made the findings dubious. Despite being questioned by many quarters, there were several of the usual suspects that began to use it as gospel. This Lancet Study became a rallying cry for such folks as Media Matters, Rosie O'Donnell, Daily Kos, ACORN, and others.
It turns out that this Lancet Study was funded in part by the Open Society Institute. The OSI is one of many so called 527 front groups that Soros uses to try and radically change our society. The fascinating part about this is how his Modus Operandi becomes clear by tracking it.
This Lancet Study which was a collaboration between several Ivy League schools and it got half its funds from a grant by OSI. The results were happily used by all sorts of allies of Soros to poison the water even further. There is an old saying that goes like this...
A lie is halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on
That's what Soros has done here and it is very much the manner in which he has employed his strategy to not only buy the Presidency but ultimately force his radical vision upon the U.S.
One of his surrogates funds a study that produce the results that he wanted. Last summer he employed a similar tactic upon Bill O'Reilly. This study concluded that O'Reilly said a derogatory name toward a group or individual once every 6.8 seconds. Of course, what the proprietors of the study failed to disclose was that they considered words like conservative, liberal and moderate to be derogatory. Only when the study was investigated did we find out about its dubious methodology. (...) Similarly, not only did a Soros linked group commission the study, but other Soros linked groups promoted the study. Media Matters immediately made hey of the study and Olbermann publicized it as well. Those are just a couple of groups in the Soros media machine that took this bogus study and tried to filter it into the mainstream and try and legitimize it.
That seems to be his Modus Operandi. He will use one of his surrogates to front money for a study that will use methodology that will back up the conclusion he favors. Then, his other surrogates will prop up the story in an effort to legitimize it and deliver it into the mainstream. The likes of Media Matters and Moveon.org will first publicize a story, and then media like certain elements at NBC and Rosie will filter it into the maistream on more popular shows.
Whether it is the likes of Media Matters, Move On.org, or elements at NBC, the NY Times, and other places, Soros can literally create a reality and then filter that new created reality through sympathetic media in order insert that new reality into the mainstream.
The link to Soros himself is ultimately quite complicated. Take a look at this now famous diagram from O'Reilly...
Soros will use any number of these groups working in conjunction to attack any opponent or concept and he will use any means necessary, including distorting facts, to present things favorable to his point of view.
Moveon.org was responsible for the Betray Us Ad. Media Matters promoted to supposed slur that they claimed Rush made at the military.
All of it is ingenius because it is all totally legal. It is near impossible to trace Soros himself to any of this. These sorts of stories can be put into the mainstream almost with impugnity.
I believe the only way to stop him is for him and his plans to become a mainstream story rather than a fringe story.
