‘Trump Aftershock’ Author Stephen E. Strang: Threats to the Nation Abound Through Those Who Speak With Their Wallets
Evangelicals Must Be Aware of Efforts to Undermine America; Covertly Funded Projects Will Strip Religious Freedom and Much More
ORLANDO, Fla.—Multiple protests across the country have dominated the headlines this year. News footage shows outraged Americans and non-Americans alike, seemingly outraged at the state of affairs in the United States.
Stephen E. Strang, a journalist, publisher and best-selling author who released his newest book, “Trump Aftershock,” on Election Day, has covered the political realm for decades and has also conducted interviews with many Evangelicals over his career. Strang said these faithful Americans must be aware of the threats being made—often covertly—to harm the nation and turn the nation away from the ideals, values and principles on which it was founded.
Namely, one very influential yet relatively quiet billionaire has been a major player, Strang says.
“The face of the many movements, campaigns and events that threaten to undermine America may be visible in the news, but the guiding hand behind this carefully scripted insurrection was a man many assumed to be outside the political process,” Strang writes in “Trump Aftershock.” “The Hungarian billionaire György Schwartz, better known as George Soros, was no passive observer. As perhaps the largest donor to the Democratic Party, he spent $27 million to defeat George W. Bush in 2004 and gave more than $25 million to fund Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, along with other Democratic candidates and causes. He funneled billions to left-wing groups such as MoveOn.org, Media Matters, the Center for American Progress, the Democracy Alliance, the Open Society Foundations and many others. And according to a 2011 Media Research Center report, Soros has direct ties to 30 mainstream media organizations, undoubtedly to influence and manipulate news coverage in favor of liberal and left-wing politics. Clearly this is not philanthropy.”
Strang also notes in “Trump Aftershock” that Soros made much of his fortune by predatory investing, crippling the European economy more than once, and virtually destroying the currency of several nations. In the book “More Money Than God,” financial writer Sebastian Mallaby reveals how Soros used the assets of his Quantum Fund in 1992 to crash the British pound and pocket a billion dollars. He was convicted by a French court in 2002 for raking off more than $2.3 million in 1998 by exploiting insider information and manipulating shares of the French bank Société Générale. His subsequent appeals failed before the European Court, and he was fined 2.2 million euros, equivalent to the amount he profited.
“But none of this stopped Soros from creating and funding left-wing groups to undermine democratic institutions, the capitalist system and the government of the United States,” Strang adds. “Soros has contributed $32 billion to fund the Open Society Foundations, which work in more than a hundred countries around the world and push an open-borders agenda. In the past no one seemed to understand the danger posed by Soros or the groups he supports. More recently it’s become widely known by conservatives that the open-borders policy of such groups is largely responsible for the immigration debacle that has devastated Western Europe and is threatening to do the same in the United States. In the aftermath of Trump’s election, Soros reportedly gave $18 billion to the foundation for immediate action against the president—meaning more demonstrations and violence if needed.
“Those who love our nation and want to see our values preserved must not only be aware of these threats,” Strang concludes, “but also mobilize to counter them.”
“Trump Aftershock” explores the “president’s seismic impact on culture and faith in America” and uncovers unreported facts while objectively helping readers understand what the nation’s most unlikely and unconventional president has accomplished.
