The Rise Of Bernie Sanders Explained By Thor Halvorssen

Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has recently been making waves as the self described Democratic Socialist has seen his campaign find large levels of grass roots support as he fights to reach the White House. Despite the rise in interest in politics among young people and those who are unhappy with the way the political establishment has run the U.S. in recent years many are unsure about the use of the term socialism in U.s politics; Fox Business interviewed respected human rights activist Thor Halvorssen about both the benefits and problems socialism poses to a nation in the 21st century.

Halvorssen began his interview with a discussion on the definition of socialism, which the Oslo Freedom Forum founder revealed is difficult to pin down; one of the problems facing those seeking a basic understanding of socialism is the many different forms of the political ideology that can be found around the world. Thor Halvorssen explained that some nations have a long history of incorporating socialist ideals into their own democratic principles with great success at home and in foreign policy.

However, when questioned by “The Intelligence Report” host Trish Regan, Halvorssen revealed he had first hand experience of the dangers socialism can pose to the people of any area of the world. Halvorssen explained his home nation of Venezuela had been incorporating socialist principles into its government for a number of decades with high levels of success, but had recently seen the rise of extreme groups hiding behind the socialist principles many in Venezuela admire. The problems facing the people of Venezuela were revealed by Thor Halvorssen to include the issues of tyrannical leaders fighting to bar any opposition to their leadership. Thor Halvorssen’s own father faced imprisonment and torture in Venezuela after opposing the ruling government despite the fact he held diplomatic status within the country; Halvorssen backed Bernie Sanders campaign, but was also critical of the use of socialism by many within ruling governments around the world.

Dick Devos Stands By Marco Rubio In Presidential Race

Dick DeVos has come out and said that the prominent and influential DeVos family is now backing Marco Rubio in his bid to be the Republican presidential nominee. The news will be welcome to presidential candidate Marco Rubio, who has recently seen a string of poor performances in primary elections. Rubio did poorly in Michigan, the home state of the DeVos family. This is not the first time the DeVos family has given to political campaigns or candidates and their donations have even been noted by the series House of Cards which you can read more about in this exclusive Michigan Live interview.

Still despite the slip up at Michigan the DeVos family still believes that Marco Rubio can go on and fight his way back up in the Republican presidential race. Dick DeVos has also revealed that the DeVoses will be giving major contributions to the Rubio campaign including his Super PAC. The move to support Marco Rubio represents a change for the DeVoses. They at first supported Florida governor Jeb Bush. When Bush dropped out of the race after the South Carolina primary, the DeVoses became neutral. 

After being neutral for a while, the DeVoses are now finally back in the political scene and are proud to get behind Florida senator Marco Rubio. Marco Rubio represents a candidate who shares the same conservative values that the DeVos family consistently espouses and supports. The DeVos family says Dick DeVos will provide Marco Rubio with a strong financial backing to expand his campaign and to keep him going. The family will also do its best to convince others to get behind Marco’s campaign. Dick DeVos did stress that it will ultimately be up to Marco Rubio and his campaign to create a buzz and attract new voters to grow his campaign. 

Dick DeVos is one of the sons that is heir to the DeVos family fortune stemming from the Amway corporation (see MLive article here). He even briefly served as the CEO of Amway and led it to consecutive years of growth under his helm. Another notable highlight of Dick DeVoses career is that he was the CEO and president of the basketball franchise Orlando Magic of the NBA. Dick was involved with the Orlando Magic for only two years because he left to become the CEO of Amway. His stint as CEO of Amway lasted from 1993 to 2002 before he left to pursue a business endeavor of his own. 

Mr. Dick DeVos invests heavily in his local hometown and the surrounding areas. He is a major stakeholder in numerous Grand Rapids, Michigan-based businesses as well as businesses in surrounding communities. Dick DeVos also supports local schools and universities in Grand Rapids through endowments, volunteering his time to help school management and finance staff and fund raising through his personal foundation.

Glad to see the Grand Rapids area make another “best of” list! Thank you all for your role in making our city great.

Thor Halvorssen Promotes Freedom with Human Rights Foundation

When Thor Halvorssen’s family came under attack by his own government in the 1990s, his education on the lack of basic human rights in many places in the world began. First his father was kidnapped in public by the violent forces of the Venezuelan dictatorial regime of the early 1990s. His father had been a an official ambassador and professional diplomat. He was illegally and without any due process detained in a secret prison. There he was tortured, beaten, and abused without any formal charges or access to any type of defense attorney.

While his family demanded information and his father’s release, powerful individuals came forward to help and human rights foundations threw in their support to try to get the man freed. Amnesty International and the International Society for Human Rights both fought hard for his release. All their efforts, together with the critical media attention outside the nation, eventually won his father’s freedom. Several years later, after these same forces had tortured and murdered an untold number of citizens who mostly seemingly arbitrary targets, Thor’s mother was shot. She was attending a peaceful public gathering when machine gun fire from government forces tore through the group. One person died and Thor’s mother was severely injured. She barely survived, as did 10 others who were also wounded. At other times a number of his other family members were similarly targeted.

Since then, Thor Halvorssen has worked tirelessly to promote representative democracy throughout the world. He founded the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) in 2005 to bring about change in oppressed countries to bring the freedom of human rights to everyone. These rights include the following:

Freedom of speech
Freedom of self-determination
Right to worship
Freedom to associate
Right to buy and sell property
Freedom of travel
Right to equal treatment by law enforcement
Right to participate in government
Freedom from exile or arbitrary detainment
Freedom from torture and slavery
Freedom in matters of conscience

Thor Halvorssen went on to use the HRF as a platform for the Oslo Freedom Forum. This was a meeting of the minds that held the first forum meeting in 2009. Advocates of human rights around the world, including a Nobel Peace Prize winner and various heads of state were in attendance. Wired magazine commented on the forum: “The seamless mix of grassroots activists, many of whom have risked their lives to speak out, and the top-level policymakers and influencers who can act on what they learn.”
