Politics

Terrorist regime ISIS has been around for a relatively short amount of time. However, since their arrival on the scene under Abu Musab al-Zarqawi the organization is now the most dangerous terror regime on the planet. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is no longer alive and his former second in command Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is now the leading figure in this dangerous organization.

Baghadi and his forces have established themselves in Syria and instated al-Zarqawi’s dream of a modern caliphate on Politico. This caliphate is the world’s greatest stronghold for Islamic jihadism against the west. It is this regime that is causing people all over the world to be afraid and fearful.

Billionaire magnet George Soros is no stranger to politics and he understands how they play an extremely crucial role in the world. This is especially true for western countries that are combating the onslaught of terrorism that has been steadily increasing over the past 20 years.

Osama bin Laden and the Al Queda terrorist network brought terrorism to the mainstream when they struck America on 9-11. Since that time, many terrorist organizations have been increasing their attacks on the west. The United States is their primary target on Snopes. The U.S.A. stands for everything that the Muslim extremists despises. George Soros knows this and he also knows that many terrorist groups have been wanting to hit the west in a major way.

Since 9-11, Americans have not experienced a major terrorist attacked that killed thousands. However, there have been many terror related incidents that involved shooting deaths. People in the U.S. are fearful of jihadist extremism coming to their communities on nytimes.com. No American person wants to deal with that type of situation.

Since they don’t, then this is why current President Trump and his Vice-President doing things which are allowing the terrorists to thrive. This is George Soros’s view on President Trump and Vice-President Pierce. Last year in 2016, when Donald Trump was running for office; he and his former running mate Ted Cruz were already explaining how they wanted to establish policies that would be beneficial to the terrorist. Well, this is how George Soros feels about the situation. He claims that President Trump’s current policies gives terrorists an edge in the world.

Soros claims that people are afraid of dying. When the fear of death is present; people have a tendency to react without thinking things through. Everyone is just trying to stay alive by completely doing away with any problem related to terrorism. However, when a person does this; they tend to make many mistakes in what they do.

For example, Soros does not agree that President Trump should close America’s borders. In January of 2016 President Trump temporarily closed America’s borders. Soros believes that moves like this is starting to impact the United States ability to remain an open society.

Soros does not believe that President Trump is going to eliminate the openness that America is privileged to have. He just understands that this type of situation could limit the freedoms that many Americans are grateful to have.

The wise and very shrewd George Soros also understands that if President Trump can continue to keep the U.S. borders closed to Muslims from the Middle East and various parts of Asia and Africa; he will probably be able to stop people crossing over from Mexico, Central America and from other parts of the world. George Soros warns that President Trump is just giving the terrorists what they want; control through the power of fear.

Business, Politics

The DeVos family is lining up behind Marco Rubio as a republican presidential candidate. They have given Rubio an endorsement coupled with financial assistance. The decision to back Rubio came after the dropping out of Jeb Bush. They are now doing whatever they can to help Marco Rubio to gain some momentum in the race. They do trust that Rubio will do what he is supposed to do in order to gain an advantage in the race. For one thing, the DeVos family is very involved in Republican politics. 

Dick DeVos is one of the sons of Richard DeVos Sr. He has worked in the Amway Corporation starting in 1974. The company distributes personal care products and health products through various dealers. At some point, Dick left the company to start a new business according to his LinkedIn resume. In the early 90s he began the management of the NBA team, Orlando Magic. He has returned to Amway in 1993 to serve as the President of the company. He was also involved in Amway Corporation’s restructuring (source: http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/09/amway_heir_dick_and_betsy_devo.html).

In 2006, DeVos has gotten involved in politics when he ran for Governor of Michigan state as a republican. He ran with the use of his own finances. Dick and his family have personally known the candidate that they are currently backing since 2006 when the candidate Marco Rubio was pushing for the expansion of choice laws for schools. This has resulted in better education for children. 

Dick and Betsy give to education, community initiatives and many more causes through their family foundation. Their philanthropic endeavors are focused mainly in Michigan, but they are dedicated to improving education across America.

Betsy shares her approach for creating more quality educational opportunities for children in Detroit.
