“George Soros Tells Progressive Donors Obama Might Not Be The Best Investment” Huffington Post Nov 17, 2020
Could there be a new machine in the making? In professional sports it’s the man with the money that owns the team. He picks the players and decides who will be the coach. He controls the team but may never play in the game. In baseball it’s called Steinbrenner (R.I.P.) at work. In governance it’s called a political machine. The ‘head of the machine is called the “boss.”
We have in our family an old coin bank sitting on the mantel over the fireplace. In antique circles it is known as the “Tammany bank.” It is a cast iron sculpture of Boss Tweed sitting high on a throne-like chair with an upraised arm. If you put a coin in his hand, the arm drops down, the coin falls into his jacket pocket and his head nods to say thanks.
The little bank is named after Tammany Hall which was the name given to the New York political machine circa 1880. Best known among other political machines are Huey Long who controlled Louisiana from New Orleans for decades and the Daley machine which has controlled Chicago and Cook County since 1955. All are of the Democratic Party.
There has never been a Washington machine. George Soros has the money and the opportunity to be the first “Boss” of a Federal machine. He clearly wants to see a Socialist in the White House.
