Matt Palumbo, author and content manager of the Bongino Report, sat down with The Political Insider’s own Brett Smith to discuss his book and explain why he sees George Soros as the most dangerous person in America.
Palumbo outlines how Soros’ influence on the national stage has been somewhat muted, but it is his influence on a more local level that has been most destructive.
Smith noted that Palumbo, author of the Publishers Weekly best-selling book, The Man Behind the Scenes: Inside George Soros’ Secret Network, Leftist billionaires have detailed how they are a danger to the nation.
“You described George Soros as the most dangerous person in America,” Smith began. “For those who have heard of George Soros and don’t know who the man is, give our audience a quick rundown … of what he is generally known for.”
Palumbo replied that “both by the value of the dollars spent over the decades” and “by the influence he has coveted in the media and elsewhere and in politics,” Soros is, at his core, “the most influential person in American politics.”

Matt Palumbo explains why George Soros is a threat to America
Matt Palumbo’s book on George Soros was described by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as “a profound, important study of one of the most influential men of our time.”
Palumbo explained to the audience why such a statement is appropriate, pointing out how Soros has been actively trying to reform the US justice system for years by pouring money into district attorney races across the country.

The author notes that while Soros has already poured money into the national stage and mainstream media to improve the liberal journalism industry, his influence is even greater through those lower-level nations.
“Where he’s had the most success — and it’s been the last decade or so — has been these state races where, let’s be honest, nobody pays any attention to them,” Palumbo noted.

Palumbo explained that while pouring millions of dollars into national campaigns will have little impact, pouring large sums into local DA races can effectively buy you an attorney with a significant impact on community crime.
“And the people he’s supporting are completely crazy people who are anti-law and order, or anti-police, pro-criminal,” Palumbo said.
These “mad men” are in turn reducing punishments for lesser crimes, or even not enforcing laws against those lesser crimes, leading to the breakdown of society. This is something Palumbo describes as having “ridiculously … predictable consequences” in society.
The Soros-backed DA he’s describing ends up seeing criminals – Criminals – often establish themselves as victims, and as “prosecutors for criminals”.

The media doesn’t cover Soros’ influence
George Soros and the district attorneys he funded took an approach that contrasted with the ‘broken windows’ approach popularized by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani used ‘broken windows’ policing (applying punishments for minor crimes to deter major crimes), and stop and frisk to make New York a city where tourists and residents felt safe under his rule.
Ask residents of cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, or Philadelphia, or even NYC, where Soros-backed DAs roam, how safe they feel in their homes right now. We bet they want to see Giuliani’s approach go further than the Soros approach.

As Palumbo points out, Soros can get hold of those low-level races because voters ‘don’t pay attention to them.’ But that idea also pervades the media.
Mainstream outlets want national stories, so the DA race and their ultimate effects on the community get swept under the rug, even as Palumbo notes there are 74 or 75 such Soros acolytes in office today.
They may not individually make good stories for national broadcast ratings, but 74 districts Where laws are not enforced and criminals are allowed to reign collectively make a compelling news or column. And it certainly affects many, many Americans.
Even Fox News, which leans somewhat toward reporting, has had difficulty addressing the issue. It was only two years ago, just months before the 2020 election, that anchor Harris Faulkner shut down Gingrich when he tried to broach the subject.
It’s one of the weirdest exchanges I’ve ever seen on TV. @newtgingrich Correctly points out that George Soros threw an unprecedented amount of money into DA races across the country to elect radicals, and Fox News basically told him to shut up. WTF? pic.twitter.com/IxwcLG2gOH

At the time, Soros’ influence was already common knowledge.
In 2018, he pumped nearly $1 million into the race for Texas district attorney against a Democratic DA who opposes sanctuary cities.
The Los Angeles Times ran a column that year noting that the left-wing billionaire was “spending millions of dollars”.
The money was an effort “to support prosecutors who want to reduce prison sentences … by overhauling a bail system that unfairly incarcerates poor people before they go to trial.”

Faulkner later apologized for cutting off Gingrich during the segment.
In a review of Palumbo’s book, Gingrich commented: “The degree to which Direct has infiltrated every aspect of government policy is alarming and should be of great concern to every American.”
An exclusive interview with the author of that book and The Political Insider may be the only place that properly addresses that concern.
