When President Obama needs help, he can always turn to one of the Soros inner circle. In a speech on Jan. 17, Obama announced that his new Presidential Counsel John Podesta will lead a “comprehensive review of Big Data and privacy,” following the NSA privacy scandal that has dogged his administration.
What he didn’t mention was that Podesta is the founder of the liberal Center for American Progress. CAP has gotten $7.3 million from liberal billionaire George Soros since 2000 and was one of the keystone liberal think tanks founded after the Democrats lost the 2004 election.
Podesta was to have focused on the health care law and climate change issues, according to a Dec. 9, New York Times
article.According to Obama, Podesta will work with a group of government officials and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, as well as reaching out to “privacy experts, technologists and business leaders,” to “look at how the challenges inherent in big data are being confronted by both the public and private sectors.” Podesta will also examine how government can “continue to promote the free flow of information in ways that are consistent with both privacy and security.” This will be done to address the ongoing NSA
spying scandal that came to light in June 2013.
