Conspiracy nuts often claim that Far Left and Far Right political groups are actually in bed together, pretending to be enemis, but actually both serving the very rich and their establishment lackeys.
No better proof of this joint effort to determine public policy exists than the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft.
The group, which will officially launch in November, $500,000 each from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and Charles Koch’s Koch Foundation.
The think tank is named after U.S. President John Quincy Adams.
Eli Clifton is Quincy’s research director, Some of his comments indicate his biases, and as a result, the thinking of Koch and Soros:
Smearing and bullying Tlaib and Omar fits with Trump and Netanyahu’s pattern of pandering to white nationalists and Islamophobes. – Lobe Log, August 2019
The ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) has emerged as one of the few defenders within the Jewish community of Trump’s White House and its “alt-right” members when they have faced charges of anti-Semitism. The group even invited (Steven) Bannon, a seminal figure of the “alt-right,” to its annual dinner in November. – The Intercept, August 2017
Clifton recently ripped into Cory Booker for not favoring a return to Barack Obama’s Iran Deal:
That language closely parrots Trump’s claims that he can use the leverage of abrogating the Iran deal to negotiate a better deal with Iran. Under the guidance of Iran hawks like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, this strategy has brought the United States 10 minutes away from a war with Iran and no closer to a better deal.
And again he is an avid Trump opponent. Here is an excerpt from a 2015 FP News article:
Much like Trump, Gaffney shows little concern for the religious or personal freedoms of Muslims. Gaffney has claimed that Muslims who follow sharia should be prosecuted for sedition. He has also characterized the Islamic community center in lower Manhattan as a “Trojan Horse Mosque.”
But if Clifton appears more than just opinionated, Quincy’s executive director, Tria Parsi, sounds like the poster boy for the New World Order in this “About” from the site:
Trita Parsi is an award-winning author and the 2010 recipient of the Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order for his 2007 book, Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Iran, Israel and the United States (Yale University Press).
He is the founder and former president of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) and an expert on US foreign policy in the Middle East. Parsi has extensive experience on Capitol Hill and at the United Nations, including work at the UN Security Council… His latest book is Losing an Enemy – Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy (Yale University Press).
You can check this very critical information about NIAC from the liberal Daily Beast.
Parsi is an Iranian-Swedish dual national and a permanent resident of the United States, not a citizen. He was born in Iran and educated in America. He is married to Amina Semlali, who is a human development specialist at the World Bank.
