George Soros Dealt Major Blow by Supreme Court as Operatives Stripped of Rights
Justice Brett Kavanaugh delivers rude awakening to liberal billionaire
Liberal billionaire George Soros has been dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court after justices blocked funding to one of his organizations and stripped its operatives of First Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution.
On Monday, the SCOTUS ruled against George Soros’ Alliance for Open Society International over its foreign ties.
The Alliance for Open Society International was pushing to receive federal funds that are earmarked to fight HIV/AIDS throughout the world.
However, the Soros operatives hit a roadblock due to an act of Congress banning any organization that supports prostitution from taking these funds.
The far-left pro-prostitution group attempted to sue the U.S. Government to bypass that act of Congress but was shot down by the Supreme Court's conservative majority.
President Donald Trump-nominated Justice Brett Kavanaugh delivered the majority opinion for the case.
"In sum, plaintiffs’ foreign affiliates are foreign organizations, and foreign organizations operating abroad possess no rights under the U. S. Constitution,” Justice Kavanaugh wrote.
"We appreciate that plaintiffs would prefer to affiliate with foreign organizations that do not oppose prostitution,” Kavanaugh continued.
"But Congress required foreign organizations to oppose prostitution in return for American funding.
"And plaintiffs cannot export their own First Amendment rights to shield foreign organizations from Congress’s funding conditions.”
"Those foreign organizations are legally separate from the American organizations.
"And because foreign organizations operating abroad do not possess constitutional rights, those foreign organizations do not have a First Amendment right to disregard the Policy Requirement,” he added.
In the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts ruled against the 1st Amendment rights for the Soros front.
Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented against the majority while Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the case.
Justice Thomas wrote a concurrence to Kavanaugh’s opinion in favor of the ruling as well.
He went even further than Kavanaugh in supporting Congress’ prohibition on issuing HIV relief funds to organizations that support prostitution.
“The Policy Requirement does not violate the First Amendment, regardless of whether it is applied to respondents, respondents’ legally distinct foreign affiliates, or any other organization, foreign or domestic,” Thomas wrote.
The Soros network has issued a statement condemning the Supreme Court ruling and the fact they will be denied federal funds because of their international support for the flesh trade.
“The Supreme Court upheld the U.S. government’s quest to impose its harmful ideological agenda on U.S. organizations and restrict their right to free speech,” Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations and former Obama Administration official, said.
“The Anti-Prostitution Pledge compromises the fight against HIV by impeding and stigmatizing efforts to deliver health services,” Gaspard added.
"Condemnation of marginalized groups is not a public health strategy."
Regardless of their whining, the Supreme Court decision is final.
