The 12-12-12 concert for Hurricane Sandy relief features performances by Sir Paul McCartney, Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, and Kanye West.

The concert will benefit the Robin Hood Foundation, which has received at least $50 million from George Soros. Soros is the organizer of the shadowy Democracy Alliance.

The group has a history of funding controversial programs. The Robin Hood Foundation made a $40,000 grant for a needle exchange program for drug addicts in 1993. More recently, the foundation was caught investing charity dollars into its donors’ and members’ hedge funds.
