Press Coverage of Richard Poe – 2011
COVERAGE OF RICHARD POE IN PRINT MEDIA, INCLUDING MAGAZINES, NEWSPAPERS, BOOKS AND WEBZINES
Newsmax was early in identifying Soros as a political force, featuring him on the cover of our May 2004 magazine with the headline “George Soros’ Coup [by Richard Poe].” Our cover story detailed Soros’ influence in Eastern Europe, supporting emerging democracies after the fall of the Iron Curtain through his Open Society Foundations.
On the whole our feature gave a negative view of his activities there. But my own views about Soros’ involvement were tempered after our magazine was published and I visited Eastern Europe in 2006.
Glenn Beck: “And Richard Poe is also with us. He is the co-author of Shadow Party, also a book you must read. … Shadow Party, a book that I don’t think I would have believed three years ago, and it is MELT YOUR BRAIN. It’s unbelievable. It is truly, truly unbelievable.”

In a 2006 book written with Richard Poe, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, Horowitz said that the strategy outlined in our article (the so-called Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis) was a blueprint to “collapse” the capitalist system.

Recently the right and the left are fighting over Marxist agitator Frances Fox Piven, who, in her old age, has been caught talking up violence… As to how the Cloward-Piven secret was hunted down and plugged, it was cornered in 2005 by Richard Poe, in DiscovertheNetworks.org.

The story they now tell about Piven can be traced to David Horowitz… In his 2006 book, written with Richard Poe, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, Horowitz identifies the “Cloward-Piven Strategy” outlined in their 1966 Nation article as the centerpiece of the radical blueprint to “collapse” the capitalist system.
