So, a little bit about the Niskanen Center, a "libertarian, open societies" 501c3 think tank, that opened in 2015 and is associated with George Soros, Tides, SPLC, and dozens of other Progressive globalist groups.
Niskanen Center describes itself:
Niskanen lists nationalist/populist movements as their enemies, and enemies of an "open society."
"The politics of the 21st century increasingly pits defenders of the open society against a new breed of populists animated by a vision of a closed and exclusive national community"
Niskanen openly identify as "globalists" who seek to change policy and promote open borders by convincing the elites, policy wonks and bureaucrats; powers behind the scenes, rather than convince the public, or politicians.
In their 2017 conspectus, they lay out their globalist views. niskanencenter.org/wp-content/upl…
Their vision is 3rd way, globalist Progressivism, seeking a one-world government, with "free market" solutions that utilize government regulation, entitlement spending, taxes, and social pressure, to be ruled by elites and oligarchs.
The Niskaken Center is staffed by members who "have long-standing personal ties and credibility on the right" in order to ingratiate and sell their vision to 'conservatives.' Read this, again from their conspectus:
Their president is Jerry Taylor, a 23 year veteran at the left-libertarian Cato Institute. Here is Mr. Taylor's take on George Soros, a fellow 'open societies' advocate.
Columnist and GOP insider, Linda Chavez is on the board, as well as climate change alarmist, Joseph Majkut, open borders advocate, Jeremy Neufeld and many more Progressive/neocon usual suspects. niskanencenter.org/about/
The Niskanen Center's advisory board is very interesting. It includes a bevy of #NeverTrump-ers, such as David Frum, Tom Nichols, Hillary stalking-horse, Evan McMullin and his veep pick, Mindy Finn.
(An amusing diversion, when you click Tom Nichols name for more information, this is what you get.)
One of the projects Niskanen Center was involved with was a George Soros-organized "march on D.C." to push the Obama administration and congress to act on accepting Islamic refugees. The line-up of groups is a murder's row of far-left, globalists.
Niskanen Center appears to be just another Soros Open Societies front group, targeting moderate, "reformicon" Republicans and left-leaning libertarians, tricking them into supporting Progressive policies, dressed up as "free market" ideas.
Something to keep in mind for those of you on the Right who're quick to align with or defend Nichols, or McMullin.

They are working for George Soros. Their goals are not conservative. They are not "libertarian." They are explicitly Progressive, one-world, globalists.
Here's a recent blog post on the Niskanen Center website. "Diversity and disagreement are the solution, not a problem."

niskanencenter.org/blog/diversity…
These are the extremist 3rd way moderates and Progressive statists that thought the end of the Cold War would "finally allow" the elites, the "Smart Set®" centrists and policy wonks to take over the world, and chart a course for a utopian globalist super-state.
Their mission statements clearly lay out their belief that the only way they can advance their agenda is by deception, power brokering, back room deals and a Marxist-oligarchal system, that eliminates nationalism, borders and cultures.
The Niskanen Center is but ONE of hundreds of NP's, NGO's and governmental groups dedicated to this 'open society' view of the world. It's not a conspiracy theory, it is an open plot to subjugate the world.

Pay attention.
ADDENDUM: The Niskanen Center is funded in part by globalist Pierre Omidyar's Democracy Fund (which also is funding McMullin's Stand-up Republic) democracyfund.org/portfolio/entr…
The Niskanen Center recieves funding from The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, to support their Global Warming alarmism rbf.org/grantees/niska…
The Open Philanthropy Project funded Niskanen's open borders immigration policy work. Open's main funders are Cari Tuna and Dustin Moskovitz, a co-founder of Facebook and Asana. goodventures.org/our-portfolio/…
Fluff piece on Niskanen's 'fusionist' libertarianism: "They're not merely looking for common ground with liberals. Instead, they're ready, willing, and eager to admit that on many issues - global warming, poverty, race - the left is largely correct." econlog.econlib.org/archives/2016/…
Oh, here's another great #TruCon™ post from the "libertarian" Niskanen Center: Free Markets and the Welfare State - "Indeed, there are even good reasons to think the welfare state and economic freedom are natural complements(!)" niskanencenter.org/blog/what-is-t…
On the issues: Niskanen Center argues for expanding immigration to the United States. In particular, they argue for protecting Diversity Immigrant Visa program in the United States, increasing low-skilled immigration, and getting the United States to increase its refugee intake.
Entitlements: "focuses on improving the efficiency of the US' welfare system, and has examined the role of welfare state, the merits of a child allowance, universal basic income, and "the dependency (or lack thereof) of immigrants on government programs."
...The Niskanen Center is also a part of the Economic Security Project, which aims to "comprehensively explore the merits of a universal basic income." economicsecurityproject.org
Climate change: The Niskanen Center advocates for the imposition of a global carbon tax for the purpose of offsetting global warming and the effects of climate change.
...The Niskanen Center also endorses anthropogenic global warming and believes that government action is a necessary component of mitigating the risks associated with long term sea level rise and extreme weather events associated with climate change.
