Oregon Gov. Kate Brown recently took to Twitter to announce that she would not be complying with President Trump should he ask her to send National Guard troops down to the border in response to the “caravan” of illegals making it’s way closer to the United States.
Strangely, the Oregon RNC is reporting that the governor just accepted a rather large donation from infamous progressive George Soros just days before making the announcement.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Willamette Week is reporting(link is external) that Governor Kate Brown has accepted “an unprecedented” campaign check from George Soros, a billionaire left-wing hedge-fund manager and campaign donor who resides in New York. This is Soros’ “first direct involvement” in Oregon.
“Kate Brown has consistently ignored problems facing everyday Oregonians and has instead used the office of Governor to make herself a national left-wing celebrity. Now, Brown is cashing in and taking big campaign donations from notorious leftist puppet master, billionaire George Soros,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier.
“We need a Governor who tackles crime, faltering state agencies, and the PERS pension crisis, and a leader who will rescue our bottom performing K-12 schools and stop the out-of-control spending and endless tax increases,” added Currier. “Kate Brown is more interested in wooing George Soros and the out-of-state, leftist, super-rich donor class than truly confronting the serious problems at home. Now we know who she really works for.”
Three days later CNN reported –
Oregon’s governor says that if President Donald Trump asks to dispatch members of her state’s National Guard to the US southern border, she’ll “say no.”
While we cannot say for sure that the donation from Soros was in exchange for Gov. Brown’s defiance against Trump’s order, it certainly doesn’t look good on her part.
Regardless of the purpose, anyone who takes money from this man is revealing themselves to be on the far left and a danger to our liberties, so in one sense, at least now we all know to keep an eye on Brown and her activities in office.
Soros has been using his vast fortune for decades to put politicians and special interest groups in his pocket, playing a huge role in the radical transformation of America. There’s likely very little he hasn’t had a hand in, so conservatives need to keep their eyes open and watch for areas where his money might be influencing the policy that shapes our nation.
