On May 15, a lawsuit against Wells Fargo, Inc. was filed by the City of Philadephia in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania alleging that the bank used predatory lending practices aimed at minority mortgage borrowers. According to the city, the bank steered minority borrowers who should have qualified for low risk, low interest mortgages, to loans with riskier, higher interest loans, while steering white borrowers towards lower interest loans. This violates the Fair Housing act of 1968. When the recipients of the higher risk loans applied to refinance their loans, they were rejected, resulting in multiple home foreclosures, which ultimately ended up hurting the City of Philadelphia.
Wells Fargo is accused to have intentionally withheld low interest loans to applicants based on racial profiling. The City of Philadelphia is not the only entity suing Wells Fargo. The City of Miami has also recently filed a suit claiming that the bank had violated the Fair Housing Act. They were also accused of creating fake customer profiles to help their employees to meet their sales goals.

The hate that many Pro-Israel and good Jewish organizations have worked hard to fight against for many years is now growing by leaps and bounds in all American campuses, although the problem seems to be growing worse. The harassments and intimidations have been brought by the Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) groups. A case that has got wide publicity is the attempts to prevent a Jewish student from joining the Judicial Board for the students because she was accused of dual loyalty at the UCLA due to her Jewish background and Identity. Another incident took place at Stanford when a Jewish woman who was contesting a seat in the Student Senate was discriminated against and subjected to open hostility from any quarters because of her support for Israel. And during a public lecture at Harvard, a student derided the former foreign minister of Israel as being smelly.
On and on campuses, there have been several other incidents of physical assaults and abuse of Jewish students and AEPI Houses. It is believed that the hate activities are well-funded, professionally organized and coordinated nationally by anti-Israeli hate groups. Whenever such groups stage huge demonstration events, they just overshadow the counter protests by pro-Israeli activists operating locally because the hate campaigns are always massive, and they are organized by professional agitator on the campuses. Most of them are doctoral students who have stayed on the campuses for many years because they are paid to run anti-Israeli campaigns.
The situation is made worse, according to Adam Milstein, by the lack of organized support for Israel in America. However, events and conferences that are pro-Israel continue to attract thousands of participants. Millions of Americans also support Israel. But the formation of groups supporting Israel like the University of Minnesota’ Students Supporting Israel (SSI) is changing all that now.
The best solution as Adam Milstein sees it is the creation of grassroots support groups that will bring together all pro-Israeli supports. Mr. Milstein is a famous man in the Jewish community who plays leading roles in many organizations such as the Israel on Campus Coalition, Hasbara Fellowships, and the AIPAC. He is the co-Founder and Chairman of the Israel-American Council (IAC).
The world of politics seems to change every single day, every single hour, and every single moment. With the election of President Trump, a statement that is still odd to acknowledge, all rules seem to have been thrown out the window. With that being said, however, there has been some silver lining for progressives who value their beliefs. George Soros is one of the most noted progressives in the world as well as the most giving philanthropist that we can think of. For a while Soros had been sitting on the sidelines of the political world but now he appears to have returned, ready to fully embrace his role as opposition to the destructive agenda of President Trump.
George Soros of course returned during the middle of the 2016 Presidential Campaign. The rise in prominence of Donald Trump as a real GOP nominee helped to get Soros off of the sidelines and ready to get back into the game. Soros returned by bringing back his trademark enthusiasm and investment abilities to the Hillary Clinton campaign. Soros has previous experience working with politicians as they run for the highest office in the world, so his experience and his financial backing were immediately important for Democrats and progressives everywhere.
The 2016 Presidential Election is definitely one for the history books and it includes some rock solid financial backing and political maneuvering by George Soros. Soros would go on to donate nearly $25 million across several different Democratic platforms, including $7 million to a Pro-Clinton Super PAC. Despite these high profile donations, Clinton would end up barely losing in a contentious and controversial election. Still, the return of Soros is an action that is going to have long ranging repercussions in a good way for Democrats and a bad way for conservatives as they try to bludgeon America with their agenda.

Historically speaking George Soros made his biggest impact in politics back in 2004 when he backed Presidential nominee Al Gorge against the incumbent President George Bush. Soros would throw around his heavy weight behind Gore in order to try and get the progressive minded man into office. This didn’t happen, despite controversy, and Soros sat on the sidelines for a while as he opted instead to focus on his Open Society Foundations.
Philanthropy has been a huge part of the George Soros business model and that has made huge changes in America for the better. George Soros believes strongly in grass roots campaigns from every day, regular people. That is why he put nearly $33 million into grass roots campaigns in and around Ferguson. When the infamous Officer Wilson/Michael Brown shooting hit the press, people were ready to look into the event. Grassroots funded individuals were able to get the Ferguson Protests national attention. Learn more on Discover the Networks about George Soros.
Without people like George Soros funding these grassroots campaigns, we would never see the kind of social justice and equality that America should be prided on. Soros and his return to the political world are going to pay huge dividends in the coming years.
