John McCain Reform Institute non-conservative causes

don't know what to make of this information coming out at this time. Why not publish this months ago before the McCain campaign took hold? why not air all of this out between 2005 and now. Also have to be wary of WND as among columnists featured as commentators are Ann Coulter who apparently dispises McCain enough to have stated she'd vote for Hillary Clinton should McCain be the Republican nominee, and then there's Huckabee supporter Chuck Norris.

Finally, are there skeletons in Mike Huckabee's closet that are being ignored, suppressed, or going unnoticed?

we've posted how McCain is the Establishment candidate as is Hillary Clinton. The media apparently favors these two over other candidates. That's unfair. The process is supposed to be the Democrat and Republican voter's choices, not the media, not Establishment Insiders.

Meanwhile Norris current column Did Conan, Colbert or Stewart create Huckabee?brings to attention what went unnoticed by those who don't watch those three.

What also went unnoticed until now is Huckabee didn't answer correctly: Who "made" Mike Huckabee?

"Let's be clear: None of these guys made me. This great nation made me," declared Huckabee. "So vote for me. God bless America and forget these three idiots."

As Sen. John McCain assumes the GOP front-runner mantle, his long-standing, but little-noticed association with left-wing donors such as George Soros and Teresa Heinz Kerry is receiving new attention among his Republican critics.

In 2001, McCain founded the Alexandria, Va.-based Reform Institute as a vehicle to receive funding from George Soros' Open Society Institute and Teresa Heinz Kerry's Tides Foundation and several other prominent non-profit organizations.

McCain used the institute to promote his political agenda and provide compensation to key campaign operatives between elections.

In 2006, the Arizona senator was forced to sever his formal ties with the Reform Institute after a controversial $200,000 contribution from Cablevision came to light. McCain solicited the donation for the Reform Institute using his membership on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission, he supported Cablevision's push to introduce the more profitable al la carte pricing, rather than packages of TV programming...

...The Reform Institute regularly has supported McCain in various legislative efforts, including on campaign finance reform, global warming and "comprehensive immigration reform," all efforts widely opposed by many in the party's conservative base.

Arianna Huffington, syndicated columnist and creator of the HuffingtonPost.com, has served on the Reform Institute's advisory committee since the group's inception.

According to FrontPage Magazine, Teresa Heinz Kerry has provided more than $4 million to the Tides Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by anti-war activist Drummond Pike in 1976 with a history of funding causes such as abortion, homosexual-rights activism and open borders.

Financial contributors while McCain was chairman of the Reform Institute also have included the Educational Foundation of America, a group that supports abortion and opposes drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve.

The Soros-Kerry funding connection with McCain was first exposed by Ed Morrissey at the Captains Quarters blog in 2005.

Subsequently, David Horowitz's DiscoverTheNetworks.org website and Michelle Malkin's blog gave renewed attention to the Reform Institute's funding ties.
