George Soros Joins The Democratic Bandwagon

The legendary billionaire investor, George Soros, has dipped his feet into the political arena once again and is now supporting the democratic party as he did before in 2004 when he donated $27 million to the democrats in hopes of defeating George Bush.

This time, Soros has spent over $25 million in support of Hillary Clinton and her dream of becoming the first female president of the United States. Soros is not stopping with this hefty donation, however. Many of his close associates and colleagues claim that he is trying to muster up even more money for the Democratic party through high-risk currency trades.

Despite his past affiliation with Clinton and the Democratic party, George Soros has never attended any of their conventions or debates. He had planned to attend one this time around but due to his recent return to active trading, Soros decided to stay tuned to the current economic situation in Europe and throughout the rest of the world.

It is not absolutely clear whether Soros’ recent political involvement is due mostly in part to his fear of Donald Trump being elected or his affiliation with Hillary Clinton on en.wikipedia.org, which has spanned over 25 years, yet Soros has been adamant about his feelings for Donald Trump, claiming that the Republican is aiding ISIS by invoking fear into the masses.

While Soros has continuously supported the Democratic party throughout the years, he usually seems to become actively involved when the stakes are high. This year it looks like they are high enough to put his money where his allegiance lies since he would rather see Hillary in office rather than Trump.

This year Soros’ political affiliation does not appear to be influenced so much by the actual candidates, rather more so by the causes they support and the freedoms they stand for, such as religious tolerance, immigration reform, and criminal justice regulations.

Whatever the reasons for Soros’ Democratic donations may be, it is invariably seen as a good sign by the Democratic party as it could influence other wealthy activists who wish to see Trump remain out of office in giving financial support to Clinton and the Democratic party.

While other rich political activists have indeed already followed Soros’ lead, he himself has contributed enough to the Democratic party to boost Hillary’s campaign efforts. As stated earlier, Soros is not finished donating yet. He recently committed $5 million to a PAC dedicated to helping Hispanic voters, as well as another $5 million to a non-profit organization designed to stop conservative efforts in restricting voting rights.

Only time will tell if Soros contribution will be enough to get Hillary and the Democratic party into the White House.

Recent Accounts Of Diversity Issues Within SFPD

In a recent account of an alcohol-fueled night on the town with union leaders, George Gascon who is the district attorney was reported to have made some racially-charged comments and seemed presumably unconcerned about Police Department diversity. Jorge Salinas submitted a sworn declaration relating to these comments. Gary Delagnes the former Police Officer Association President. He claims that there were racism and homophobia occurring within the department.

He reported the incident and submitted his declaration for eight days after Gaskins panel appearance. He testified that the union is responsible for influencing the police commission and that its influence has not been in a positive manner. Delagnes was a member of the police force for 25 years and was for nine years POA president. He retired in 2013. He reflected on a dinner in 2010 with Gascon, who he claims made multiple racially charged comments. Families that were attending had to ask him to calm himself because he was offensive. Gascon had relayed to the press that he was worried about the state of the police department since he left in 2009 as compared to 2011 which prompted the likeness to speak up about the previous events. Delagnes also claimed that over the course of several meetings and telephone conversations, Gascon appeared not to be concerned with diversity within the police department. He felt that these biased opinions did not reflect the SFPD. It is claimed that no action at any level was ever taken to address the diversity issue within the police force.
