James Hansen, George Soros, and the Lack of Transparency

Creepy NASA bureaucrat James Hansen once provided computer model support for the hysterical notion that burning fossil fuels would soon create a new ice age. More recently, he's been shilling for Al Gore, screeching that we're all doomed thanks to these same fossil fuels causing global warming, meanwhile sweeping bogus temperature readings under the rug.

No doubt the switch was largely a matter of keeping up with the liberal fads that the mainstream media passes off as news. But more importantly, Hansen was following the money.

We already knew that Hansen the global warming crusader was making a mint on prizes like the Heinz Award and the Dan David Prize. Now we learn that he was paid as much as $720,000 by the relentlessly anti-American George Soros' absurdly named Open Society Institute.

Too bad this wasn't public knowledge during Hansen's 1,400+ news interviews, during which he often screamed that he was being silenced by George Bush. But then Soros isn't known for transparency when it comes to financing moonbattery with his ill-gotten riches.

Other examples have come to light with the release of OSI's 2006 annual report:

OSI's ominously named Justice Fund, with a $17 million bankroll, helped instigate and finance the massive illegal immigrant rallies we saw last year.

The Hamdan v. Rumsfeld ruling that abolished special military commissions for Gitmo terrorists was obtained with Soros-financed lawyers.

Soros money helped sink a program called "Secure Flight" that matched passenger lists with terrorist names.

Lawyers who persuaded a Texas judge to block the tracking of terrorist cell phone communications were paid by Soros.

OSI partners with the Tides Foundation, which passes cash along to groups engaged in "direct action" — often a euphemism for eco-terrorism.

George Soros is a one-man termite colony, eating away at America's foundations on countless fronts. Perhaps best known of these fronts is, recently in the news for its attack on General Petraeus, which crows of the Democrat Party:

Now it's our Party: we bought it, we own it, and we're going to take it back.

You might wonder why a cipher like Barack Obama is being taken seriously as a presidential candidate. It wouldn't be surprising to learn that Soros' cash has something to do with it.

George Soros.

So the reports of paid shills were correct, but which side of the debate they were on was wrong.
