George Soros Finances Group Helping Facebook Flag ‘Disputed’ Stories

December 17, 2016

TEL AVIV — The organization partnered with Facebook to help determine whether a certain story is “disputed” is financed by billionaire George Soros and a slew of other left-wing funders.

The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook yesterday announced it will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to the code of principles.

Facebook says that if the “fact checking organizations” determine that a certain story is fake, it will get flagged as disputed and, according to the Facebook announcement, “there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.”

IFCN is hosted by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies. A cursory search of the Poynter Institute website finds that Poynter’s IFCN is openly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations as well as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy.

Poynter’s IFCN is also funded by the Omidyar Network, which is the nonprofit for liberal billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. The Omidyar Network has partnered with the Open Society on numerous projects and it has given grants to third parties using the Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Tides is one of the largest donors to left-wing causes in the U.S.

    Allowing George Soros to be the decider of truth would be about like asking a pimp to be a moral authority on sexual morality.

    George Soros admittedly grew up seizing the property of his fellow Jews in Hitler’s Germany. This guy lost his soul to Satan a long time ago.

  • disqus_CeZmTpgh9W says:

    Soros is not a communist! he is a NAZI!
    He once stated the best time of his life was going around with his father confiscating jewish properties for HITLER!

  • exar1 says:

    I’m concerned as to why this guy hasn’t been investigated, tried and put in prison. You can’t pay for so much illegal activity and not leave a trail to get hoisted by his own petard.

  • Doug says:

    Just what we need, another Leftist organization telling us the truth is false and their lies are truth. Attention Facebook!!! Fall for the scat the Liars sell and guess what you’ll end up covered with. You can do better, that is, if you really want to. Please note Facebook, if George Soros has anything to do with it, Truth is the thing you will get the least of.

    your talking a dirty old millionaire who has poison in his heart for America.

      Soros turned in his own family to the Nazi’s to save his skin and money. So what would he think about America? He has been a huge factor in the rise o hard left liberals and the cause of all the snowflakes looking for a safe space. He wants to create a country that depends on the government to have control. Now with hillary losing I think they will become more desperate and obvious.

      1. cathylovesyou says:

        I agree Soros at nine turned in many Jewish family’s as well for bucks. He broke the Band of England in 1987 after they took him in as protection from the Nazi’s. He is a communist.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Why is this B-TARD allowed to live, America need to do like Russia, ban this POS from this country or be shot!!

  • Tiger says:

    It is really time to stop all these people because they do not have our best interests in mind, ahh hummm and as long as any of them remain in our country and active we are in harms way.

    A Trump DOJ and AG needs to put into play our laws related to inciting riots which would put Soros, Hillary, Obama into hot water along with the fact that O and H committed out and out Treason against this country and we need to take them to task, put them on trial and let them rot in prisons.

    Bloodshed is not the answer but sometimes if they keep pushing the envelope then the blood of Patriots have to be shed to cleanse the garden of Freedom. Damn these people to the depths of Hell they came from.

    1. Retired says:

      If only the people who have created the world wide mess were to shed the blood.

      1. Tiger says:

        Never works like that, never has and won’t this time it appears.

        1. Worried Vet says:

          I know I watched that show. They think their royalty and the country has no hope without them. It’s disgusting acting like that. Yes there was no hope before Trump won now there is hope and less fear in this country. They can’t stand the idea Obama will go down in history as the worst POTUS we ever had, and being worse and more wimpy than Carter is saying something.

          1. Tiger says:

            Amen and they will find out soon enough as Trump ignores them as he has been doing and keeps on plugging in his agenda. These people will float to the top like dead bodies and they will was h ashore the isle of the “Useless”.

    A CLOSER LOOK FROM MANY SOURCES (This is followup from the “Operatives in the Obama Administration”–a description of each one.)

    Alikhan, a first generation American, from a Pakistani mother and Indian father. He is one of the founders of the World Islamic Organization (WIO), which the Egyptian magazine identifies as a Brotherhood “subsidiary.” It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and that he provided the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appointed Mr. Alikhan to the position of Assistant Secretary for Policy Development in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. As a Senior Advisor to the U.S. Attorney General in Washington, D.C. he oversaw the National Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Program for the Department of Justice.

    Elibiary is a Texas-based Islamic cleric who founded Lone Star Intelligence LLC, “to promote a centrist public-policy environment in Texas by coordinating the state-level government and interfaith community relations for the organized Texas Muslim community.”
    He has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, and was given access to a highly sensitive file containing hundreds of thousands of intelligence reports intended solely to aid law-enforcement agencies. Elibiary also spoke at the infamous Dallas Muslim conference in honor of “the great Islamic visionary” the Ayatollah Khomeini. (Read full blog by Rod Dreher, The American Conservative,
    In fact, Elibiary may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to Rose El-Youssef. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
    Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration’s counter-terrorism strategy, and the Egyptian magazine asserted that he wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power “but offers no source or evidence for that claim.”

    Al-Marayati, originally from Bagdad, Iraq, is founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a Los Angeles-based Islamic advocacy group that defends Muslim extremist violence. MPAC has condemned the anti-terrorism measures of both the U.S. and Israel and has called for a repeal of the Patriot Act. The magazine draws connections between MPAC and the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure. He has justified Hamas’ existence as a political entity that promotes social programs and “educational operations.”
    He has called for the U.S. government to unfreeze the assets of two Islamic charities, the Global Relief Foundation and the Holy Land Foundation, both shut down by the U.S. government because of verifiably funding terrorist organizations.
    In 2010, the administration picked Al-Marayati to represent the U.S. government at the annual Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) conference, and in 2012 he was again part of that same forum in Poland. This raised many concerns from critics as Al-Marayati is an outspoken critic of Israel who once said the Jewish state should be added to the list of 9/11 terror suspects, according to Fox News, 17 October 2012.

    Imam Mohamed Magid, originally from Sudan, heads the Islamic umbrella organization, ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members. He was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security to serve in a Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. The Egyptian magazine says he has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI. He is nicknamed the Sharia Czar by critics of the Obama Administration.

    Eboo Patel, whose parents emigrated from India, appointed to the Obama Administration Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, spoke at a Muslim Students Association (MSA) and ISNA convention, appearing on a panel alongside Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, and Siraj Wahhaj, who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and who has defended the convicted WTC bombers.
    The Egyptian magazine also said that Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, another grandson of Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as “a large Brotherhood organization.”
    According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.

    Rashad Hussain, son of Indian-born U.S. citizens, is the Obama administration’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Hussain’s background is replete with Muslim Brotherhood associations, including the American Muslim Council (founded by al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood operative, Abdurahman Alamoudi, now in prison); the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT ) which is on the Brotherhood’s own list of “our friends and the organizations of our friends;” and the Muslim Students Association (MSA), the original Brotherhood front group in the U.S.
    In his official capacity, Hussain is responsible for providing advice on national security and Muslim outreach. He also assisted in writing the President’s June 2009 Cairo speech, in which Obama announced a new approach to the Muslim world and essentially declared war on his host, then-President Hosni Mubarak, by publicly signaling his recognition of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also acts as point man for the Obama administration’s cooperation with “the Istanbul Process,” the effort of the 57 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. (Yes, you read it right!)
    Perhaps an event like the Benghazi fiasco can now be better understood. The current administration’s duplicity was incomprehensible in the aftermath of the September 11, 2012 terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, when it repeatedly and mendaciously claimed that an Internet video trailer sparked a protest there that got out of hand. Now it appears to have been carefully scripted not just with the OIC, but Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the U.S., as well.
    Every follower of Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, must now ask our Heavenly what he or she should do about America’s immediate future. It starts with prayer. It must follow with action

  • Danny Reagan says:

    Anything George Soros is associated with in any way is bad for America. His fact checking is merely scheme to make is lies sound like the truth, as he continues to destroy America and take our freedoms away. Wake up America!!!

    1. Anouk says:

      Exactly! Soros should have been arrested longtime ago. He is trying very hard to destroy the America he hates giving million and millions of his wealth for his destructive goal.

  • empty pockets says:

    These…um…”people” will doubtless set aside all their far left partisanship and treat everyone fairly…wait! Is that a flying pig I see?

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Hey I seen that flying pig to. Right now they have thousands of them flying around trying to change the electors minds. These libs have no shame and try to win at any cost no matter how many people they hurt. I wish people would start boycotting shows like the view, CNN, and the rest of these lying hacks who don’t understand what losing means. If she would have won and we did just a little of these insane things, they would be locking us up.

      1. empty pockets says:

        They’ve just been given a smack upside the head…er…a heads up by the rejection of their next elitist in line. There’s still enough people who aren’t buying what they’re peddling to throw them out. So…control the language, control the “news” and message…you control the people. All this “fake news” brouhaha is starting to make people realize that the MSM has been peddling just that to us for a long time and further undermines their credibility. Drastic measures must be taken by the left to gain control again.

        All the corruption and collusion between the DNC and the media…that’s “old news” and we need to be worried now about “fake news” they will keep telling us. Fake news is any which disagrees with them and their conclusions.

        The leftist progressives never quit. They never stop advancing their agenda of socialism…incrementally, progressively.

        1. Worried Vet says:

          If they keep acting like spoiled , power hungry cry babies we will win many more seats come 2018. The attitude is changing now with the races,so when Trump starts doing a great job theses liberal elites are through. Their progressive agenda will be shown to be what it really is. The elites gets richer by power and control over the population. It’s more like a monarchy than a free society. They all think their royalty now and Trump scares them, and the cabinet he is putting together reinforces the fact it’s over. We need to pray for our new POTUS because liberals like the Clinton’s, ried and pelosi have proven they will do anything to win. Right now their only pissed off because they got caught. The emailed showed us just how crooked and dirty they are and how far their willing to go. Hell they went after their own party member. Hillary was so hubris and arrogant she knew she would win, she got fooled. I am sure she threw a fit when she lost and I bet it wasn’t lady like. I hope the democrats keep acting like they are, we will win more and more elections and maybe get rid of liberal and progressive agendas for many decades. They are so childish they can’t admit when their wrong. That’s good for us.

          1. empty pockets says:

            In a sane world all you say would be true. Sadly we don’t live in a sane world right now. The left is working overtime to distract attention away from the content of those emails–which may or may NOT even have been hacked and perhaps, but not provably, by Russians who MAY have been doing it for Putin…or not. They want everyone looking at “the other hand”…so they’re making a big deal about the Russians…though they’ve known they were trying [and possibly succeeding] to hack the DNC months ago. Never made much of it then…because they thought Hillary was a shoo-in to win. Her losing upset all their plans.

            They’re going to keep at the distraction away from the content and their corruption and the majority of the media–being leftists, too–will keep doing what they’ve been doing…ignore it as hard as they can.

            All that was know before the election, WV…and she still won the popular vote. HER voters, the Left’s voters…they just don’t care. So don’t take for granted that they won’t believe what the leftist media tells them going forward.

            Have a blessed and Merry Christmas or Hannukah or winter solstice or whatever you celebrate.

            May we all have a peaceful and prosperous New Year. Take care and be well.
