It is an interesting study in group psychology.

Posters emotionally invested in conspiracy nonsense such as Russiagate ansd Ukrainegate automatically turn off conspiracy theories from the opposite end of the political spectrum, when they are essentially saying the same thing ie. Very rich bloke is corrupt.

They are comfortable with one conspiracy theory, but two is a stretch, to the point it openly annoys them.

P.S. Sorry, collusion :rolleyes:
what is ukarine gate?
obama coupling with the far right to coup the country?

Article is a generous way to describe a propaganda piece

I don't take Voice of America as the holy word of truth, or CCTV, why is RT any different?
Of course it is propaganda when anyone points out Soros corruption and we know you love Soros - the ex Nazi collaborator.

the report’s worst finding is that in 88 cases judges sat on the bench ruling on cases brought to the court by NGOs they had previously worked for, without declaring a conflict of interest and without withdrawing from hearing the cases (see page 15 of the report and annexes 1 and 2.) In one case, ruled on in 2018, 10 out of the 14 NGOs that had brought the case were funded by the Open Society Foundation, while six out of the 17 judges who heard the case themselves had links to the same Soros-funded group.

The judges’ refusal to withdraw is a disgraceful professional failing which shows that Europe’s supreme human rights body is not, in fact, independent but is instead part of veritable “human rights industry” – a pyramid of money and a tight network of professional relationships, at the top of which sits George Soros with his billions.




Yep vanilla coke, vegan pies, GWS premierships, monorail etc

Surely the left pile on can do better LOL

Apparently Soros is also the one who suggested to George Lucas that the Star Wars universe needed Ewoks and Gungan

There would not be anything wrong with judges having exercised a salaried activity for an NGO prior to becoming a judge if these same organizations were not themselves active as parties who bring cases to the ECHR, either as applicants themselves, as lawyers for applicants, or as third parties giving supposedly expert evidence (but in reality lobbying for a cause), and if those judges did not then hear those cases.

The fact that this corrupt system has been able to flourish has several causes. The first is that Soros and the NGOs he finances dominate the human rights industry across the Balkans and in the Baltic states. His millions flood these small, poor countries (he has spent $131 million in Albania since 1992, for instance) and they in turn appoint judges to the ECHR which rules on human rights issues for the 47 member states of the Council of Europe. Indeed, the report finds that the total spending of the Open Society Foundation in Europe, $90 million a year, actually exceeds the annual budget of the European Court of Human Rights ($70 million).

Second, new procedures introduced in 2012 specifically provide for NGOs to take part in the selection procedure for judges at the ECHR. These NGOs can propose candidates and they can lobby for their selection. They have done this on many occasions, as the report shows. In the case of Albania in 2018, for instance, two out of the three candidates were executives of the Open Society Foundation; one of them was elected.

Finally, there is no requirement that people appointed to be judges at the ECHR have any judicial experience at all. Some 51 out of the 100 judges who have sat on the ECHR bench since 2009 had never been judges or magistrates before. Instead, they were very often human rights activists working for Soros or one of his front organisations.




Keep going Neddy!
