Tony Blinken, Biden’s secretary of state, has close ties to George Soros through his parents. The international court is now looking into Blinken’s conduct with Albania.

Mr. Blinken is a total failure as Secretary of State. In Afghanistan, he chose to turn over the protection of US troops to the Taliban and to surrender $84 billion in ammunition, weapons, military equipment, and airplanes. This was the most shameful surrender in US history. It was the worst in the sense that it was unnecessary. It was an absolute catastrophe.
Blinken is now working on a horrible deal with Iran that could turn out to be even worse than we anticipated. Blinken could be negotiating the worst deal in the history of the United States this week.
Our southern border is in a state of disarray. Blinken has caused the US to get into a bind in Ukraine. Why could Blinken be so harmful to the US? One reason could be the fact that it appears to be intentional. This could not possibly be explained in any other way.
Richard Grenell, the former Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign Policy for President Trump, wrote an article that was published by the ACLJ in November of 2021. A tweet from Blinken began this story.
Former President of Albania Sali Berisha’s corrupt acts undermined democracy in Albania. I am publicly designating Berisha and his immediate family members as ineligible for entry into the United States. We remain #UnitedAgainstCorruption with our partners in Albania.

It was not a justified act on the part of Blinken. Furthermore, Berisha is known for standing up to communism in a former communist country. Berisha resisted.
Interestingly, Blinken’s parents are proponents of George Soros’s Open Society. As Grenell notes:
Berisha has slammed the actions by the State Department as the work of radical Left billionaire George Soros and his Open Society, an organization that claims to promote transparency and human rights in the Balkans. The ACLJ and our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ), have been exposing Soros’s outsized, radical – and what some might call corrupt – influence on the world stage.
Berisha’s claims regarding Secretary Blinken and Soros should not be dismissed so quickly. The U.S. Secretary of State’s parents, Vera and Donald Blinken, have repeatedly donated to Open Society, even creating a permanent endowment at a European-based data archive that carries their name – The Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives.
Congressman Lee Zeldin (NY-1), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, recently confronted Secretary Blinken on his sudden sanctioning of Berisha. Secretary Blinken conveyed little confidence when asked for justification, stating “I don’t have anything to share.” While Blinken offered platitudes of follow-up for the Committee, no such information, or evidence, has been submitted. The circle-back saga continues.
At present, the only evidence we know of is Berisha’s staunch opposition to Soros’s political interference, which Mr. Berisha has decried as circumventing the rule of law and informal influence over the entire Balkans region. Mr. Berisha himself in 2017 called on major governments to investigate Soros’s role in regional politics and went so far as to encourage others to declare Soros “non-grata.”
Secretary Blinken now faces a new challenge to his authority in the form of international courts. Last week, the Correctional Tribunal of Paris announced that it would hear Berisha and his claim that Blinken has defamed his reputation by declaring him persona non-grata.
And Berisha has a point. These U.S. travel sanctions that Blinken has used against Berisha are typically a move reserved for some of the world’s most blatant, evidence-backed violations of international norms and human rights, including that of the likes of Russian oligarchs. Yet Berisha has been a friend to the U.S. and has even been hosted by both Presidents Bush.

The Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives’ website states that it: “actively collects, preserves, and makes openly accessible documents related to recent history and human rights. It also experiments with new ways to contextualize primary sources, developing innovative tools to explore, represent, or bridge traditional archival collections in a digital environment. Our approach to acquisition is increasingly proactive and inclusive, and we actively seek out non-traditional material, material previously marginalized based on its content, social origin, or form.”
Grenell went on in his article to say that “The American people, and the world, should question if they were sold a false promise by the Biden Administration. This is an Administration, after all, that promised us “a return to normalcy.””
The United States is and will always be a nation governed by law and reason; and these sanctions, absent evidence, serve only to undermine U.S. credibility. Secretary Blinken must provide his supporting evidence if Congress and the American people are to have any faith in Biden’s competence on the world stage. It’s time for Congress to demand the proof about Albanian sanctions that Blinken told us he had. I personally have never seen it, and I concentrated on Balkan issues as Acting Director of National Intelligence.
