Jim Johnson, Barack Obama, and George Soros

By Soren Dayton Posted in | | | | Comments (9) / Email this page » / Leave a comment »

Lots of attention has focused on Jim Johnson, who Barack Obama picked to guide the VP selection process. We have already talked about a number of the problems. It comes down to this: just as Tony Rezko helped Obama with a sweetheart deal to buy his house, Countywide Financial, which Obama rails against, helped Johnson buy his.

But there is more on Johnson. In 2001, he joined Persueus LLC as a Vice Chairman. Perseus has a number of funds. Among them:

PERSEUS-SOROS BIOPHARMACEUTICAL FUND, L.P., which Perseus co-manages, was formed in 2000 with capital commitments totaling $449 million to make investments in life sciences companies

So Perseus is a business partner with George Soros. And Johnson is the Vice Chairman ...

Incidentally, as Say Anything Blog notes, Perseus also seems to own the publisher of the Scott McClellan book:

Public Affairs Books (editor at large Peter Osnos: About The Century Foundation.)

Public Affairs Books is owned by Perseus Book Group.

Perseus Book Group is in turn owned by Perseus Funds Group, (holding company Perseus LLC). Perseus has enjoyed growth of assets over the last 13 years of 10,000% (100 x 1995 value).

Are we looking at the finance empire of the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy?

quite a circle jerk with Soro's and all the entities he funds...the MSM uses Soro's funded outlets for their "news"...it is quite compelling and at the same time sickening to watch the tentacles that fat pig has in this country!

Freedom of Religion NOT Freedom from Religion

I'm not surprised that Obama has very liberal connections. Here was rated the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate. However it won't matter if we can't get our message out and start acting like Republicans again. I wrote and article about this on my blog.

It's the Problem.

How quickly the GOP has forgotten. Conservatism is the only path to the majority, and once obtained, it's the key to keeping the majority.

Re: The OP...

    Perseus is a player in the VLWC, but there are seven groups that form the administrative core of the Shadow Party.

  1. America Coming Together
  2. America Votes
  3. Center for American Progress
  4. Joint Victory Campaign 2004
  5. Media Fund
  6. MoveOn.org
  7. Thunder Road Group

The Obama/Soros connection is not new:

In December of 2006, Soros met with Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama in his (Soros') New York office. Soros had previously hosted a fund-raiser for Obama during the latter's 2004 campaign for the Senate. On January 16, 2007, Obama announced the creation of a presidential exploratory committee, and within hours Soros sent the senator a contribution of $2,100, the maximum amount allowable under campaign finance laws. Later that week the New York Daily News reported that Soros would back Obama over Senator Hillary Clinton, whom he had supported in the past. Soros' announcement was seen as a repudiation of Clinton's presidential aspirations, though Soros said he would support the New York senator were she to win the Democratic nomination.

The Democratic Party has been privatized.

Its Chief Executive Officer: George Soros.

Ixnay the Vast Left Wing Publishing Conspiracy. After many years working in a bookstore I know liberal publishers are just as greedy and willing to make a buck as anyone else. Public Affairs publishes conservatives. They look to publish books people want to buy so they can earn a profit.

Don't blame me, I used to work for Fred Thompson.


I am aware of far too many anecdotes which strongly, STRONGLY suggest otherwise. Just starting with Hillary's $8M advance from S&S in 2000 for a book that nobody read, and which served basically as a large campaign contribution.

There are others.

and if you look at his career [Target, Fannie Mae, Kennedy Center, etc.], he's sort of Chmn of the Board a la Sinatra of the vast criminal empire the Dems have [often legally] erected.

That's why the Dems are chock-a-block with lawyers, to justify Dem crimes to voters.

The deal that Obama had when his was the highest offer on the house that had been on the market for quite some time? (verified by the previous owner).

The deal that Obama made when he paid Rezko the percentage of the assessed value of the lot that he bought? (verified by assessment records)

Neither one of these were for less money than anyone else would have paid.

Just repeating something doesn't make it true, you know.

The article now published at the site below will tell you more. It doesn't mention a name, but if you read it, you will at least be a step closer to understanding what is really going on.

Seldom does the written word produce such quick results.

You wrote this on June 10, I believe.

Rush mentioned it on his program this morning, June 11. (Happy 12th Birthday, Chloe)

Jim Johnson resigned this afternoon.

Not bad at all.
