New Video Shows Severe Issues in Venezuela

With the economic collapse in Venezuela showing no signs of improvement, conditions in Caracus have reached devastating proportions. A new video released by Fox Business News shows Venezuelan citizens looting their city and foraging for food in garbage pails.
As more and more Venezuelans like Jose Figueroa, 50, feel the impact of the economy’s rapid demise, it is most of all resulting in a wide-spread, outbreak of hunger. The food shortage in Venezuela is reaping havoc on citizens and is causing them to resort to desperate measures to feed themselves and their families.

This shocking video circulating on Open Corporates shows people digging through heaps of garbage in hopes to find their next meal. Additionally, some sources claim that Venezuelans are eating dog food to survive. Besides garbage diggers, the city’s capital is also experiencing enormous issues with people looting food trucks. Although the U.S. National Guard troops have been called in to control these problems, they do not appear to be helping the situation.

Just last week it was announced that the Coca-Cola company would stop production of their sodas that contain sugar, because there is not enough sugar to make them. And now, this harrowing video only further proves that something has to be done soon to help Venezuelans to heal their deteriorating economy before starving citizens perish from hunger.

James O’Keefe’s Attempt to Prank James Soros’ Open Society Foundation Fails

James O’Keefe, a conservative activist, tried to infiltrate the Open Society Foundation but ended up exposing his agenda. The activist called the Foundation and posed as Victor Kesh. He left a voice message to Dana Geraghty indicating that he wanted to support the Foundation’s fight for Europeans rights on James claimed to be a Hungarian-American who wanted to be involved with the foundation. Unfortunately, the activists failed to hang up and continued to talk to another party about his real plan.

James proceeded to engage in a 10-minute conversation while still recording his message and exposed his plan for the foundation. He indicated his intent to make another one hundred similar calls to the Foundation. James tells of his plan to access Geraghty’s LinkedIn pages but then realizes she will access his real LinkedIn account. Geraghty responded to the prank and said that she was alarmed that James and his team intended to use her as a point of entry.

Geraghty was amused that they did not know how to use technology. She sent the voice message to Chris Stone, who is the president of the Foundation. Stone in response said that Watergate burglars would do a better job than the activists would. James and colleagues could not use an internet browser yet they attempted to do an undercover operation. Stone noted that although the message is amusing, it revealed ongoing evil plans against the foundation. George Soros founded the Open Society Foundation in 1979, which is a network of projects and foundation in over 100 countries.

George Soros Claims Germany-Turkey Refugee Plan will Not Succeed

The European Union must create a comprehensive plan on including new taxes to deal with the refugee crises, according to George Soros. According to an op-ed published in the New York Review of Books. George Soros says that the current asylum policy as negotiated in March 2015 between Turkey and German chancellor Angela Merkel is not a viable solution to the problem which sees up to 60,000 refugees coming to Germany from Afghanistan and Syria each month.

He says that negotiated plan requires that little sums of money be spent over many years. George Soros says that a better solution is to pour $125 billion dollars into the problem immediately. He says that this amount of money should be given as grants to countries that are currently facing the largest amount of refugees. George Soros believes that the cost of the refugee crisis must be shared across all countries and fears if it is not that it will cause the collapse of the European Union which he says will be a much more costly problem. He believes that the $125 billion should be raised through value added taxes on Visa applications, gasoline and travel.

George Soros is the founder of the Open Society Foundation on In addition to the cost of the refugee crisis, Soros hints that the currently negotiated plan interferes with the refugees human rights. For example, under the current plan, refugees cannot choose where they want to live in the future. Some refugees may end up placed in countries where they cannot make their living in ways that they choose. Instead, George Soros believes that a system should be put in place allowing refugees to be allowed to move where their skills will be most likely to make them a good living. He says it could be similar to students who compete to get into top universities before finally make a choice based on their personal desires. Soros says that the current system keeps many refugees stuck in Germany for far too long. A system must be created so that refugees can quickly establish a new home and where the children can be educated.

George is one of the wealthiest individuals alive. He is an active supporter of Hillary Clinton for president of the United States. This 84 year old investor has taken an active role in speaking out on politics for many years. He is the manager of the Soros Management Fund credited with causing the European Union financial crisis in 1994. He is a graduate of the London School of Economics.

The DeVos Family’s Philanthropic Spirit

Many people have resources beyond their need. In fact, some are blessed in excess. However, not everyone shares in the spirit of giving. Some would rather keep it all to themselves while others engage in philanthropic deeds either for the good of the less fortunate, or for the good of the general public. Giving especially to someone, you do not know or to a cause you do not know whom it will benefit is a noble thing, and for this reason, philanthropists need to be recognized.

Some family dynasties have made it a family culture to donate to worthy causes. When talking about wealthy dynasties involved in philanthropic activities, the DeVos family has to come up. The DeVos family is extensive in their giving, sometimes donating to a single cause and other times to diversified causes.

A majority of the population often wonder where such families get all the wealth to give. Well, in the case of the DeVos family, their financial success dates back to 1959, when Richard DeVos Sr. cofounded Amway. The business picked up well and has propelled the man and his family to a current net worth of $5 billion, putting him on the list of America’s richest persons. With such wealth, it is no wonder Mr. DeVos can contribute to any cause he deems fit.

The Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation, is the brainchild of Richard and his wife, Hellen. The foundation is based in Michigan, their home state. Through this Foundation, Richard and Hellen managed to cultivate the culture of philanthropy in their descendants. This initiative has resulted in creating a positive impact in the lives of many. The family is recognized for their efforts in pioneering education reforms. The DeVoses use their three foundations to push money towards steering education reforms. Their children, including Dick DeVos are living up to their parents’ legacy.

Dick DeVos, a father of four, is married to Betsy DeVos, in a marriage that has lasted for over thirty years. Dick DeVos attended Northwood University, where he graduated with a degree in business administration. He embarked on his working career, taking up a job at his family’s Amway Corporation in 1974. Within a span of ten years, he had risen to the position of Vice President. He steered the company into expanding its market base, entering 18 countries in the process. In 1993, Dick DeVos became the company’s president.

Mr. DeVos co-chairs Grand Action, which is involved in the revitalizing of downtown Grand Rapids. His family is active in politics, and in 2006, DeVos Jnr ran for Governor in Michigan. Currently, Mr. DeVos is involved in his private ventures.
