Soros, Lewis, and the Sandlers form a core group of billionaire activists and Democrat partisans who have formed a group called The Democracy Alliance. They realized that they could magnify their power by working in unison and tapping other wealthy donors to further their agenda (the superb Boston Globe article “Follow the money” is a good primer on how money and 527 groups have come together to have a huge impact on politics in America). The Democracy Alliance is a major avenue to help them achieve their goals. The roster of its growing membership consists of a list of billionaires and mere multi-millionaires who collectively hope to give upwards of 500 million dollars each year to further promote a left-wing agenda. A partial roster of the Democracy Alliance membership can be found here. Half a billion dollars a year can purchase a great deal of influence. The Sandlers certainly know quite a bit about leverage from their savings and loan days.
Among the beneficiaries of their largesse: Air America, ACORN (a group that has very close and long lasting ties to Barack Obama and has a long history of engaging in voter fraud. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (basically a private detective group focused on the private faults and foibles of Republicans), Media Matters, a media watchdog group that engages in harsh partisan attacks against media figures and articles it considers supportive of Republicans). The list goes on and on. They are not merely out to elect Democrats, but to also permanently realign U.S. politics and shift our society and culture in a far-left wing direction…
Committee on States is a national network of state based progressive donors that grew out of the national Democracy Alliance. In 2014, our state investors added over $60 million in investments in both infrastructure and electoral efforts. Those outlays allowed us to provide better planning, strategic vision, and accountability with all of the various partner organizations. It is our goal to grow this investment strategy to $100 million by 2020. In most of the 24 states within our network, Democracy Alliance donors serve in leadership capacities; however the state based network includes many more state focused donors that do not always participate at the national level. The Committee on States conference in Minneapolis should provide you an excellent opportunity to set out the 2016 vision for the HRC campaign. It will also allow our state networks to proceed with a better understanding of the structure and strategy of your effort. Our conferences typically include over 150 of the top national state based funders and activists and are closed to the media. Enclosed is a draft agenda. *Erin Egan, the director of our Colorado effort, took part in the Hillstarter meeting in Denver and Boulder on Monday. She said that you and Amanda Renteria had a fabulous message that would be beneficial for our members to hear. We are hoping that you and possibly Amanda could join us. We are very flexible on the set up for this session.*
Sorry to bug you, but I hear that you’re working with the Democracy Alliance to arrange a possible video presentation from Hillary Clinton to its members at their spring meeting in SF next month and am wondering if that’s going to be live and interactive, or just taped.
