Billionaire George Soros isn’t used to losing, but when he does, we just have to celebrate.
Soros and his family spent millions to take over the Democratic Party – one committee, one state party, one Congressman at a time.
Soros and his tight network of one-worlders and socialists use their massive funding to push the Democrat Party into the left-wing fringe. But a few middle-of-the-road Blue Dog Democrats have held on.
The Blue Dogs are too liberal for us – but even moderate liberals are too moderate for Soros and his minions. So, they doled out millions trying to run any Democrat who is not a radical left-winger out of office.
This week, they put one sitting Congressman in the crosshairs – and the congressman beat them like a drum.
Rep. Dan Lipinski is a Democrat – but he’s a different kind of Democrat.
He voted against ObamaCare.
He refused to endorse Barack Obama for re-election in 2012.
He voted against letting unvetted Syrian refugees flood into the United States.
“Congressman Lipinski was never a supporter of President Obama when he needed him most,” said a representative of Organizing for Action, Obama’s community organizing group.
He voted for a border fence 12 years ago.
He’s voted for a bill to protect the Pledge of Allegiance from activist judges and another to make it illegal to burn the American flag.
He’s one of the few pro-life Democrats in the House. And he supports tariffs like the President Donald Trump.
Make no mistake – Lipinski is too liberal for us on a lot of bread-and-butter issues: He’s pro-union, pro-environmentalist, and spends more from the nation’s wallet than we’d like. But he’s also patriotic and level-headed.
He’s the kind of Democrat that President John F. Kennedy might have recognized.

Soros and his far-leftist buddies decided they needed revenge – so they dumped tons of out-of-state money on the Chicago-area seat.
They picked first-time candidate Marie Newman to run against him in the primaries.
Newman is a left-wing activist who supports socialized medicine, radical global warming policies, and open borders.
She’s also proud to be “the former Illinois spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action,” the gun-grabber group.
She’s every bit as radical as Soros could hope for, so he greased the skids to put her into office.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) – which Soros’ son just cut a check for $237,000 – refused to back the incumbent Democrat for re-election.
Then Newman was endorsed by:
- Planned Parenthood, which Soros has given $21.2 million since 2000.
- NARAL Pro-Choice America, which Soros and his friend Warren Buffet have given at least $6.66 million over the years.
- The notorious MoveOn.org, which drove Joe Lieberman out of the Democrat Party in 2006, got started with a $5 million pledge from George Soros.
- The Feminist Majority Foundation, which Soros has funded through his Open Society Foundation.
- The SEIU union, which is tightly involved in Soros’ network of radical left-wing politics.
Ironically, one of Newman’s campaign promises was “fighting big money in politics.”
It’s hard to fight it when you’re drowning in it. She raised at least $1.4 million in out-of-state money. Lipinski spent about half-that-much on TV ads.
Then he had to beat back three, full-blown socialists – Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, and Rep. Luis Gutierrez. All three endorsed Newman over their fellow congressman.
Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist.” Schakowsky attended socialist meetings while in office. And Gutierrez, the leading supporter of amnesty and open borders, started his career as a member of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party.
The pundits were positive, with that much firepower, she couldn’t possibly lose.
But sometimes David beats Goliath, and this is one of those times.
Lipinski beat Newman in a squeaker, 51-49 race on Tuesday.
He ran against the Democrat Party structure, his own colleagues in the House, and the entire funding of the Soros machine — and won.

Lipinski’s not our ideal congressman, but he beat Soros, and that deserves a tip of any patriot’s hat.
