Soros Asked Obama to Investigate a Specific Person

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Sunday that billionaire far-Left financier George Soros told then-President Obama to investigate a specific person.

And the professor says, "I have the memo."

Are we a nation of laws, or a nation of men?

Be informed.

Sunday, Alan Dershowitz told Breitbart News host Joel Pollak that he will be filing a lawsuit and the information is soon to become public. This is a transcript of their exchange:

Q: But let me just ask you — you said that George Soros asked Barack Obama to have his Justice Department investigate somebody?
Dershowitz: We’re — that’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future. Yeah.
Q: Wow, well, we look forward to hearing more about that news.
Dershowitz: That’s not unusual. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time. Presidents whisper to [the] Justice Department all the time. It’s very common. It’s wrong, whoever does it, but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think that it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 form [an FBI record of an interview], which documents this issue, and it will, at the right time, come out. But I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.

Dershowitz would not identify exactly who was targeted, but it will soon emerge in a lawsuit that will be filed.

Are we still a "nation of laws"---or have we become "a nation of men?"

Founding Father John Adams enshrined the concept of a "government of laws, not of men" in the 1780 Massachusetts state constitution. But his words expressed the firm conviction held throughout the 13 colonies in the years leading to the Revolutionary War.

It was a powerful idea because it conveyed a fundamental truth: Government should be based on clearly written laws, consented to by those to be governed by them, and not on the unpredictable will of one man or even a few.

Specifically, they were thinking of King George III---to whom they would soon address the "Declaration of Independence."

And our Founders would subvert the accepted notion of "the King is law" to a declaration that "the law is king," drawing on Aristotle's Politics of laws rather than men as a form of government.

We don't know who was targeted by Soros to be investigated by President Obama and his crew, but knowing Dershowitz, we'll all know soon. He does what he says.

We do know that there is a growing concern that our laws seem to apply to some, but not to all.

Friday we were told that the Justice Department is closing its investigation of Andrew McCabe, the FBI's former deputy director, over his false statements to investigators probing an unauthorized leak that McCabe had orchestrated.

McCabe was fired last March after a blistering Justice Department inspector general (IG) report concluded that he repeatedly and blatantly lied.

The rationale behind the Justice Department's decision is explored fairly deeply in an article by Andrew McCarthy, published yesterday in the National Review.

Mike Huckabee also wrote an excellent article on the subject.

Both lay out the fact that McCabe lied. Big time. But because of how the information was handled and how others associated with McCabe have already testified---and the potential for a very far-Left jury, it is likely, for those reasons, the Justice Department decided they may not win and await another time to try the case.

Both say McCabe is not off the hook.

But does it feel like even our "nation of laws, not of men" structure is failing?

This 3 year, multi-million dollar attempt to set up Trump and take him out as president has among other things revealed there are two tiers of laws---or at least consequences, in our nation. One for the elites and one for us.

How did we get here?

"They did what was right in their own eyes."

Judges is a book about apathy and apostasy. It's about a time when God's people turned away from Him and His ways and did what was right in their own eyes.

The book, written by Samuel, is summed up in a single verse: "In those days Israel had no king; the people did whatever was right in their own eyes."

It parallels our own social realities and dysfunctions.

As the people continued to pursue the notion of "doing what was right in their own eyes," they, by their own decision, were choosing not to live under God's authority.

In his book, "How The World Ends: Understanding The Growing Chaos," JB Shreve notes that
"It was not simply that the people were self-interested. Their basis for morality, right and wrong, was centered upon their own will and desires. This was in spite of the incredible fact that they were the only people who God had ever given His law to."

In this context, God was telling them not to slip into a self-centered lifestyle and philosophy.

In fact, Moses had warned God's people of this about 100 years before the time of the Judges, "You shall not do as we are doing here today, everyone is doing what is right in his own eyes" (Deuteronomy 12:8).

Like the ancient Israelites, we are witnessing social collapse. The rise of suicide and self-induced drug overdoses rise in relation to the rates of depression, anxiety, and general misery in the most prosperous society in the world.

Our churches are trying desperately to relate to a failing culture, when the culture doesn't need a new friend, it needs healing, deliverance, and a new godly vision. The church, in too many cases, is failing its calling.

We are marching the streets of cities across our nation demanding our "rights," which consist of a growing number of wants and desires. And taking selfies, posting on social media as we demonstrate, because, it's all about "me."

The cure to this social and individual collapse is moving from the law of personal preference to God's eternal laws.

This is the opposite of "everyone doing what is right in his own eyes."

Early colonist William Bradford saw this new nation as "A city on a Hill"---today too many see it simply as a place to get free stuff.

We have moved from God's laws prevailing, to man's ideas prevailing.

This is why spiritual renewal must precede political and social renewal. Otherwise, there will be no renewal and chaos will continue.

The New Testament speaks of God putting His laws in their minds and writing them on their hearts.

When human eyes are turned toward God's ways and Word, order replaces chaos, individually and culturally.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
