The left always says it wants to get big money and dark money out of politics. Yet their actions speak so differently.
A large cabal of wealthy liberal donors is planning to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the 2020 election and as usual, George Soros is connected to the effort.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Confidential Memo: Secretive Liberal Donor Club Plots $275 Million Spending Plan for 2020
A secretive group of top liberal donors has budgeted $275 million to be injected into progressive infrastructure leading up to the 2020 elections, confidential documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.
The Democracy Alliance, which has been pivotal in helping bankroll left-wing causes and organizations since its founding in 2005, held its annual Spring conference at the ritzy Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas, last week. Members and liberal groups mapped out their goals of expanding and strengthening the progressive political base, building and supporting progressive governance at every level, and restoring and expanding structural power.
The gatherings, which typically feature prominent Democratic politicians, are not publicly announced in advance, feature tight security, and are billed as a “safe place for its progressive funders.” Members of the alliance, who are called “partners,” are prohibited from talking to media, told to “refrain from leaving sensitive materials in public spaces,” and to dispose of unwanted materials in “specially-identified recycling bins.”…
Gara LaMarche, who was previously the vice president and director of U.S. Programs at George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, leads the Alliance, which counts Soros as a member and consists of more than 100 millionaire and billionaire donors who each pledge at least $200,000 annually to organizations that are recommended by the club. Its full list of members is unknown due to the group’s secrecy.
On a related note, would you be surprised to learn that George Soros’ fingerprints are also on the Russia hoax?
The Washington Examiner reports:
George Soros-backed group gave millions of dollars to firms tied to Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele
A group backed by liberal billionaire George Soros contributed millions of dollars to firms connected to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, the author of the so-called Trump dossier.
Internal Revenue Service filings reveal The Democracy Integrity Project, founded in 2017 by a former staffer to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., $3.3 million was paid to Bean LLC., a holding company that oversees Fusion GPS. Separately, $250,000 was paid to London-based Walsingham Partners Ltd., which is owned by Steele and his business partner Christopher Burrows, the Daily Caller reports.
Similarly, hundreds of thousands of dollars were also paid to other firms with ties to Fusions GPS as contractors or law firms that represented Fusion GPS on legal matters concerning the dossier, according to TDIP’s tax filings.
The left has spent years demonizing the wealthy libertarian Koch brothers for being involved in Republican politics.
Soros makes them look like amateurs.
