Univision goes all in for Hillary Clinton


Univision, the largest Spanish-broadcasting television company in the United States, is going all in for Hillary Clinton.

The network has now partnered with Clinton, and it’s being heralded as “building bridges” with the presumed leading Democratic contender for the 2016 elections if she were to enter the race. “Univision is building bridges with the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, while helping early childhood education at the same time,” writes MultiChannel News.

The initiative was launched on Feb 4, 2014, at a Head Start office in New York. Randy Falco, the president of Univision, teamed up with the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Foundation’s Too Small to Fail initiative. The initiative is focused on encouraging young Hispanic children– ages five and under– to develop critical thinking skills.

Univision Chairman Haim Saban has a long history as a mega-donor to the Democratic party. In 2008, he backed Hillary Clinton against Barack Obama. However, in 2012, Saban donated $1 million to Super PACs supporting President Obama including $333,333 to Priorities USA Action, $325,520 to the House Majority PAC, and $325,520 to the Majority PAC. Later, Obama nominated Saban’s wife, Cheryl Saban, to be the United States representative to the United Nations General Assembly.

In fact, during a conference in Israel, Saban said his formula for influencing American politics is to make donations to political parties, establishing think tanks, and controlling media outlets.

Clinton and Saban also regularly team up to help Democrats who are close to Hillary.

In October 2013, Haim and Cheryl Saban hosted a fundraiser at their Beverly Hills home for then Democratic Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe — now governor of the state– which Clinton headlined. McAulliffe served as the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2001-2005 and co-chaired Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign. While Bill was in office, McAulliffe raised $275 million for Clinton’s causes. He even loaned the Clinton’s $1.35 million to purchase a home in New York City. Those in attendance at the event included studio head Harvey Weinstein, Clinton backer and entertainment executive Casey Wasserman, and Netflix Content Chief Ted Sarandas. Tickets to the event started at $15,000 per-plate.

Saban, along with George Soros, have already pledged they’d back Clinton in 2016. “I hope she will run. She would be a wonderful president,” Saban told Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper back in November 2013. “If it happens, we will of course pitch in with full might. Seeing her in the White House is a big dream of mine.”

On top of Univision, he is the founder of the  Saban Policy for Middle East Policy, sits on the Board of Trustees at the Brookings Institute, founded the Saban Institute for the Study of the American Political System at the University of Tel Aviv, and sits on the International Board of Governors of the Peres Center for Peace.

    “Soros’ private philanthropy,” totaling nearly $5 billion,(5,000 x 1
    million!), that’s 5000 of the types of organizations listed below made
    millionaires to continue undermining America’s traditional Western values. His
    “giving” has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization,
    sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass
    immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social
    engineering.”

    In addition to his “giving” to fund these deviant organizations, he “OWNS” so
    many American politicians I could not list them all here! He owns 2.5 million
    shares of Time Warner and funds much more of the “alphabet soup” we call the
    MSM. Currently he is buying up thousands of acres of farmland in America. George Soros
    is the zoo keeper feeding the deviant organizations destroying America from
    within.

    “The country thirsts for a great leader. Governor Christie’s actions yesterday reinforce my
    admiration for him. I believe Chris Christie is a once-in-a-generation leader,”
    Stanley Druckenmiller told Bloomberg News.”From 1988 to 2000, Druckenmiller
    managed money for George Soros as the “lead portfolio manager for Quantum Fund.”
    He is reported to have made $260 million in 2008.”

    A vote for Christie IS a vote for Obummer and Hitlery!
