George Soros Political Contributions

Published / by Alice

George Soros, who scaled down on his political donations after contributing $27 million in the hopes of defeating President George W. Bush back in 2003, has now emerged as a top funder for Democrats. According to Democratic fundraising personnel and the Federal Election Commission records, Soros has contributed over $20 million to Democratic causes on wsj.com. His associates believe that Soros, who is estimated to have an estimated fortune of $24.9 billion, will help more as election nears.

People working close to the billionaire say he is more politically engaged than ever before and has high hopes in Clinton. On the other hand, he accuses Trump of fueling fears among the Americans. According to Michael Vachon, George Soros close political advisor, the billionaire has been consistent to common operations regarding financing. The stakes are now high because Soros has worked tirelessly for many years to support religious tolerance and immigration reform.

Soros willingness to spend millions to beat Donald Trump is a positive sign for the Democrats. George Soros’ contribution has helped the Democrats enjoy an enormous financial advantage, which allows Clinton to forge a solid campaign strategy that outclasses Trump’s. By the end of June, Soros had contributed at least $7 million to Priorities USA Action, a PAC that supports Clinton. Additionally, records also show that Soros added $2 million to opposition research that targets Trump.

Soros has donated or committed an extra $2 million to fund a mobilization group known as America Votes where donors are not disclosed. The motivations and giving patterns are somewhat similar to the year 2004, when Soros, who had a profound opposition to the Bush administration and the Iraq war, spent $27 million on liberal groups boosting John Kerry’s contest to Bush.

That contribution, combined with Soros’ fiery rhetoric as he often compared Bush policies to the Nazis. The action often made Soros a target of malicious attacks from media outlets and conservative politicians referring to him as a communist, a puppet or worse. After 2004, Soros suggested that he will cut back on spending heavily on the political arena at http://www.cnbc.com/george-soros/.

Instead, Soros has focused more on philanthropic endeavors. He has worked with several international foundations, donating over $13 billion in a span of three decades to defend fundamental human rights. He also aims at expanding education and health care access in different parts of the world.

In 2005, Soros was a key player in the launch of a club of liberal donors known as Democracy Alliance. It aimed at holding back cash from groups fighting interim electoral battles. Though Soros supported Obama over Hilary Clinton the presidential primary in 2008; he inclined more on the candidate who he considered was not more aggressive in implementing liberal priorities.

SEC Whistleblowers Should Come Forward

Published / by Alice

The Securities Exchange Commission has an extensive staff that works very hard at making sure the financial industry remains honest. For those who veer outside the law and try to cheat the system, the SEC — alone with the Justice Department — steps in to take corrective matters. Both individuals and large companies have been levied with massive fines for illegal activities. Fines have even reached the millions of dollars. And then there are those whose actions were so egregious they landed in prison.

The SEC, no matter how much is budgeted for staffing and resources, is going to be limited in its actions. SEC agents cannot be everywhere. The agents are not capable of learning about activities that occur in private. Even if suspicions exist, deliberate actions are impossible to take without compelling evidence.

To help gather evidence, the SEC relies on whistleblowers in scores of different situations. A whistleblower can do a lot for the SEC. As a witness, the whistleblower could testify in court or in administrative proceedings. Whistleblowers may also be able to provide all-importance documentary evidence required for sufficient proof. And yes, a whistleblower could reveal activities the SEC totally knows nothing about. Again, the agency does rely heavily on whistleblowers to a great degree. Whistleblowers are the reliable insiders who play a necessary role in keeping the financial industry on the straight and narrow.

This is not to say people are automatically willing to come forward and speak publicly about wrongdoing. Whistleblowers are frequently quite fearful about what can happen to them if their identities are exposed. Retaliation is going to be the main concern of anyone who is contemplating coming forward. Lawmakers understand such a dilemma, which is why protections for whistleblowers were written into the landmark Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform legislation that emerged after the Great Recession.

Still, they may not even come forward even when the rewards to do so are generous. Yes, there are rewards for whistleblowing. Dodd-Frank stipulated it is possible to pay whistleblowers 10% to 30% of the recovered money.

Regardless, people still have fear. One way to overcome that fear is to simply procure the best legal representation available. No one should feel they have no legal options to explore when hoping to cast light on illicit financial activities. By hiring a whistleblower attorney, there is no reason to feel threatened. The attorney can help with every step of the process and, possibly, assist in procuring the deserved reward money.

Wen by Chaz Dean: Yay or Nay

Published / by Alice

Everyone is simply buzzing about the latest and greatest beauty hair care product, cleansing conditioner that keeps on popping up all over media sites like Total Beauty. Though there seem to be a few brands out there already, the one brand that sticks out the most is Wen hair by Chaz Dean. This celebrity endorsed product has been getting more and more people interested in cleansing conditioner because honestly who wouldn’t want to cut their morning routine in half? But does it actually work? One woman, Emily McClure, decided to conduct her own experiment and this was her result she wrote on bustle.com under the title “I Used Cleansing Conditioner On My Fine Hair and This Is What Happened”.

Before I continue, here is just a little bit of basic information about the product that can be found on Sephora.com. First, this product was created by LA celebrity stylist, Chaz Dean. This is a five-in-one product that takes the place of shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, entangle, and leave in conditioner. The main focus of the product Wen is to strengthen and restore moister to the hair while cleaning it at the same time. Best part is that it is great for all hair types no matter what you are specifically looking for out of a hair care product.

To get an idea of how this product worked Emily decided to try it for a week. Early in her report she was a little bit skeptical because, from the picture she posted, Wen suggested she use almost double the amount of product she normally would. Her results afterward was that it made her hair voluptuous and shiny. At the end of the week long trail Emily decided that yes it did add shine to her hair but she needed to use it daily to keep her hair looking it best while using this product whereas before she could go a couple of days.
