The Deep State financiers are on call.
Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, said Monday that the Department of Justice has launched an investigation into who is organizing the violent riots that have taken place around the country since the death of George Floyd.
Speaking on Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight, Wolf called it "absurd" to think that the unrest that has swept the nation is caused by President Trump.
Reminding Carlson that DHS sent federal agents into Portland to stop "violent rioting and looting that was occurring in anarchists targeting a federal building in Portland," Wolf stated that "I think most reasonable Americans understand what's going on out there."
And really the cause of all this is local officials, state officials not taking this seriously enough from day one. When there's violence in your community, you need to restore law and order right away. We've seen that - it will work. We've seen it in Kenosha for several days. It is working. Places like Portland and other places need to take that same advice. They need to bring that law and order back to their streets so that the residents of those cities can feel safe as they go about their business every day.
The DHS chief then said the DOJ is investigating the heads of the organizations and individuals who are funding the rioters to "move across the country."
It's something I've talked to the AG personally about, and I know that they are working on it.... The Department of Justice is also targeting and investigating the head of these organizations, the individuals that are paying for these individuals to move across the country. What we know, Tucker, is that we have seen groups and individuals move from Portland to other parts of the country.
Speaking about the recent Kenosha riots, Wolf noted that out of 175 arrests made in the Wisconsin city, "almost a hundred of them were from out of state. So we know they're moving around."
"We've seen them in DC, in Sacramento and elsewhere," he added. "They're organized. We've seen similar tactics being used from Portland and other cities across the country as well. So we know that there's organization, and I know the Department of Justice is also looking at that as well."
Wolf gave the assurance that the investigations are "moving as quickly as possible" and that the Trump administration is "committed to holding individuals accountable."
Beyond ensuring that the appropriate information makes its way to the Justice Department, the FBI, and other relevant agencies, Wolf stressed that "this president is committed to holding individuals accountable. I think, once folks start to realize that if you want to riot, you want to loot, you want to do some of these other criminal acts that we see around this country, there's going to be consequences for that. And we're going to - we're going to continue to move down that road."
As The New American has previously reported, the riots are being financed by some of the world's leading capitalists. Billionaire George Soros is one of the most notable. Documents that came to light in 2016 showed that Soros' Open Society Foundations had been pouring money into Black Lives Matter, giving $650,000 in seed money to the burgeoning group.
Even before that, almost $35 million in Soros money was provided to groups involved in the 2014 Ferguson riots, documents cited by the Washington Times and other media outlets showed. Recently released undercover footage from Project Veritas of Antifa leaders also revealed that they had received a "grant" from Soros. Indeed, Soros has backed dozens of organizations ranging from Occupy Wall Street to the Center for Community Change.
The Sunrise Movement, a lesser-known organization involved in sowing the current unrest, is largely funded by the Rockefeller Family Foundation.
Black Lives Matter is an openly Marxist organization and the riots are typically abetted by Antifa, a communist group. The riots ultimately have nothing to do with improving the lives of blacks and everything to do with fomenting a socialist revolution in America by creating pressure from below via these seemingly grassroots (but in reality orchestrated and well-funded) "protests," which is then used as justification for radical social change by the Marxists in power - and sold to the American people by the propagandists in the mainstream media.
