In spite of Clinton loss, Soros still has the golden touch

For progressives of every stripe, Hillary Clinton’s loss in her presidential bid represents not just a devastating setback, but a fundamental transformation of their world. While to conservatives such notions seem like overblown hysterics, to many rank and file liberals the Trump victory is akin to the Devil himself assuming the highest office in the land. People thus assume that George Soros, Clinton’s largest single donor, must be similarly gripped by catatonic despair. They are wrong. Soros is a relentless fighter who has a particular knack for pressing on no matter what. Despite the seemingly huge loss in backing the losing Clinton, Soros continues funding many campaigns and in the process winning many battles for his favored causes. At times he seems like a force of nature that simply cannot be stopped.

Losing the presidency but winning the culture war
The last thing Soros’ opponents should ever be is complacent. Regardless of whether one thinks that his backing of Clinton’s doomed campaign was a strategic error or, knowing she was likely to lose but donating anyway, merely a powerful statement of solidarity, what’s certain is that Soros is a phenomenal strategist who usually picks his battles very wisely indeed. In recent times, Soros has focused his philanthropic fusillade on high value yet relatively soft targets. In particular, George soros has focused on defeating incumbent conservative sheriffs, prosecutors and judges.

This is a brilliant move for a number of reasons. By concentrating on prosecutorial races, George Soros is tapping into perhaps the most powerful job in the country that no one pays attention to. Prosecutors hold the power of life and death in their hands. Through their discretion to bring or dismiss charges, they alone decide who will stay out of jail. What’s less understood, however, is that in the United States prosecutors, not judges, hold near absolute power over who will go to jail. The mechanism by which they control this is the plea bargain.

If a prosecutor is determined to send someone to prison and he has anything resembling a strong case, he can easily compel most defendants to accept a plea bargain whereby they will be required to serve some jail time. This is done through what is termed “loading”, or charging defendants with many crimes at once, all of which carry long sentences. By threatening to effectively send someone to jail for life should they lose at trial, when the prosecutor offers that person 6 months in county lockup, the defendant will have almost no choice but to take the offer.

Another dimension of the prosecutor’s power is their control over the state’s purse. If a prosecutor is determined to convict, they have an essentially unlimited budget at their disposal to spend on any one case. While high profile cases like the O.J. Simpson trial, where wealthy defendants are acquitted, garner much attention, in reality when a prosecutor comes gunning for someone they have little chance of winning.

All this means that prosecutors can unilaterally shape the workings of local criminal justice systems. That Soros recognized this long ago and has been accumulating a fantastic record of wins in local prosecutorial races should put his opponents on guard. They are dealing with a man who has spent a lifetime turning everything he touches to gold. And that trend shows no sign of slowing.

Dick DeVos Shows Hard Work And Commitment Pay Off In The Long Run

I am always looking for inspiration in all aspects of my life, but particularly in my business career where I often look at how other successful people have built their careers. One business leader I have always enjoyed looking at the career of is Dick DeVos, the Michigan based business leader who has turned every company he works with into a success; Dick DeVos made his name with the AmWay Group that has become the company he is most linked to for myself. Dick joined the company in 1974, and reached the Presidency of AmWay in 1993 after he had enjoyed a two year stint as the CEO of the Orlando Magic basketball franchise.

 

The DeVos family have not only been involved in the AmWay group, but almost every member of the family has impressed me with their commitment to building their own companies. For Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy the building of The Windquest group began a number of years ago, but since Dick left the AmWay group in 2002 he has continued his impressive career as an investor for various interests that interest him. I like the way Dick has focused his investing career after AmWay on local businesses in Grand Rapids, Michigan, such as a distillery that is creating waves with local and national customers.

 

Inspiration for myself comes from many different aspects of the life of Dick DeVos, including the philanthropic work that has always been a part of his life that has inspired me. I have enjoyed exploring the many different aspects of the life of Dick DeVos, inclduing the success he has achieved in education reform along with his wife, Betsy. Dick and Betsy DeVos have worked together in many different areas of their career and charity, which include their success in bringing education reform to various states around the U.S. There is much to admire in the philanthropic work of Dick DeVos that has acted as an inspiration for my own willingness to give back to the local community; the loss of high quality aviation options in Michigan led Dick to develop the Regional Air Alliance of West Michigan to maintain an aviation presence in the region.
