I watched 13,000 beautiful, joyful, and angry people march down Santa Fe's busiest street, San Francisco St., for one entire hour, and I I will steadfastly guarantee that not one single one of them, including our Mayor and two City Councilors, was paid a dime by Soros or the CIA or anyone else to be there.

I was so moved by this, hearkening back to the Peace Marches I walked in in San Francisco in 1967 and 68, to end the Vietnam War that I wrote an OEN article:

The President tweeted twice about the Marches, the first at 5:47 AM the day after the Marches:

"Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly."

Later, at 7:23 AM, a more dignified almost egalitarian tweet:

"Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy," he said. "Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views."

Some aspiring author should call the Soros Foundation and the new Director of the CIA, really soon, to update such absurd stories with a new one reporting on their comments, if they were able and willing to comment. I did call them after posting this article and this is one clarification; I am waiting for one more detailed:

A spokeswoman for Soros's Open Society Foundations, said in a statement,

"There have been many false reports about George Soros and the Open Society Foundations funding protests in the wake of the U.S. presidential elections.

There is no truth to these reports.

We support a wide range of organizations -- including those that support women and minorities who have historically been denied equal rights.

Many of whom are concerned about what policy changes may lie ahead. We are proud of their work. We of course support the right of all Americans to peaceably assemble and petition their government--a vital, and constitutionally safeguarded, pillar of a functioning democracy."

The mere supposition that this was all or even part paid for makes very little sense to me, and it denigrates the real ethos behind the Women's March on Washington.

Such bizarre hypotheses open the door to some dubious speculation, an interesting can of worms, but still nonetheless a can of worms that has little place in serious accurate political analysis.

Soros is a mercurial and quirky guy, and do remember that he owns millions of voting machines, that he supported Hillary Clinton to the tune of about $6 million in campaign contributions, and yet was one of the Founders of the most egalitarian petition organization in America, Moveon.org.
