It turns out that abortion zealot Wendy Davis of Texas was put through law school by a wealthy husband who took care of her children. She had been depicted by the liberal media, including The Huffington Post, as a struggling single teenage mom who made it on her own. But the curiosities don’t end there. Arianna Huffington has her own sugar daddy—Nicolas Berggruen, a German-born billionaire who has just provided her with the big money for a new global media venture, The World Post.
The Huffington Post, a platform for advocates of abortion and homosexual rights and marijuana legalization, was named after Arianna Huffington’s ex-husband, Michael Huffington, who was born rich and then turned gay. She used his money from a divorce settlement to start the on-line news service in 2005.
One of her co-founders, the late Andrew Breitbart, left in disgust over its leftist tilt to start a conservative alternative, now called Breitbart News.
The Huffington Post specializes in covering alleged “shocking” statements by conservatives and Republicans, and demonizing those who disagree with the “progressive” agenda. It has been described by critics as a platform for “anti-Israel hate speech and anti-Semitism,” as well as a mouthpiece for Al Jazeera and various terrorist groups. It employs personnel from Al Jazeera and Moscow-funded Russia Today, and even hosts a blog written by Russian ruler Vladimir Putin.
In this case, with the launch of The World Post at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Huffington is really going global.
The theme of this year’s 44th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting is “The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business,” which means not only saluting China’s emergence as a global power, but facilitating Iran’s entry into the “international community” as one of the world’s future top 10 economies.
Several hundred major corporations and foundations finance the World Economic Forum, making it a powerhouse on the global stage.
Huffington’s new partner, Berggruen, also finances the Berggruen Institute. It is dedicated to “the design and implementation of new ideas of good governance—drawing from practices in both East and West—that can be brought to bear on the common challenges of globalization in the 21st century.” It also wants to create institutions to “competently manage the global links of interdependence.”
The World Post fits in nicely with the theme of this year’s meeting, outlined in the release of a document, “Global Risks 2014,” which complains that “weak or inadequate global institutions” have impeded attempts “to cooperate on addressing global risks.”
Translated into ordinary language, this means the convergence of the capitalist and communist systems, leading to some form of one world government. And The World Post is shaping up as the house organ for this new world order.
Nicolas Berggruen and Nathan Gardels, who is editor-in-chief of The World Post, have written the book, Intelligent Governance for the 21st Century: A Middle Way between West and East.
In other words, capitalism is finished. It fulfills the vision of another billionaire, George Soros, the hedge fund operator who has declared capitalism to be the real global threat to the world. Soros is a frequent speaker at the World Economic Forum and is there this time as well.
