Skip to comments.New $80M Anti-Trump Network Spearheaded by Soros-Funded Org With Former ACORN Employees
Posted on 05/27/2017 8:34:30 AM PDT by COBOL2Java
A new $80 million anti-Trump network is being led by an organization whose top funder is liberal billionaire George Soros and which employs former members of the controversial and now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).
The Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund, the 501(c)(4) sister organization of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a New York-based nonprofit that receives the bulk of its funding from George Soros, announced at their spring gala Tuesday that they will be heading up the new $80 million anti-Trump network that will span 32 states and have 48 local partners, CNN reported.
The network will seek to mobilize new voters and fight voter identification laws. It will also focus on gerrymandering and automatic voter registration programs with an eye on the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, backed the new effort.
"This national network, led by working class people of color and immigrants, will supply the power and the fight we need to resist the Trump administration's all-out assault on American values," Ellison told CNN. "I look forward to standing with CPD Action's leaders in the streets and in Congress to win real progressive change."
The Center for Popular Democracy, which was founded in 2012, consists of old chapters of ACORN, the community-organizing group that was forced to close after being stripped of its federal funds following controversy in 2010.
Andrew Friedman, a co-executive director at the Center for Popular Democracy, co-founded Make the Road New York, a Latino immigrant group that has worked alongside CPD on a number of anti-Trump campaigns. Friedman serves on the board of Make the Road New York (MRNY) and Make the Road Action Fund...

Aren’t there some kind of charges or crimes in his past that can be held against him?
I wonder when it will dawn on Soros’ minions that we do this FOR FREE. And with no direction. In fact, it COSTS most of us to wage this war against these pukes.
Well that didn’t take long. The same old criminal operatives still free to inflict damage at will.
Soros really needs to be taken down and all his financial holdings confiscated and poured into the general fund, or better yet, to fund the military. Yeah! That’s the ticket! All money given to the various crooked dem projects clawed back as well. Put them in debt and bankrupt them.
I can easily see Soros spending the rest of his days at the Gitmo resort and if his sons pick up the baton and continue with his dirty work; they too can enjoy an indefinite stay at hotel Gitmo.
Find his application for citizenship. I’ll bet there’s no mention of his collaboration with the Nazis. The passenger log for S.S. United States lists his citizenship as “Stateless”. That means that Soros was “not considered as a national by any state under the operation of its law”.
Arrest, Impound, Convict, Strip and Deport.
when you start peeling the layers back you find that the US gummit is funding some of soros’s front companies.
so in some ways the taxpayers are supporting our enemies

I have been thinking he same thing. There is so much money unaccounted for by the government. For instance the 6 billion missing from State Dept. I wonder what that was funding? I do have comfort in knowing that these revenue streams are shutting down as the Trump Admin finds them. There’s not much they can do or say about it since it was not legal to begin with.
This may have something to do with it: Democrats Reject God at D.N.C. Convention 2012
If Soros & other billionaires approve of socialism so much, we should help them along. We need a “Billionaire’s Tax”. Not just an income tax. Make them give to gov’t HALF the value of their assets each year until they are no longer billionaires. That should make them happy. And they would have less available to manipulate our political system, making US happy!
Trump is doing everything he can as quickly as he can - pretty much on his own as he gets no help from the GOP traitors in the House and Senate.
Did I say "help" from Congress? Hell, he gets outright obstruction, if not passive-aggressiveness from the likes of Ryan and McConnell. It's a miracle that Trump has accomplished all he has in these few short months.
Cut the head of this snake off and all his devious organizations will wither
Patience my friend, patience...God is on our side. If not for divine intervention, the election day miracle of President Donald J. Trump would not have happened. I know that many have been critical of Sessions disappearing over the past few weeks but I choose to believe he is deep in the mines digging up information to begin prosecution of Obama Administration criminals. We shall see. I also believe there is sooooooooooooooooo much illegal activity that took place, it might take a while to sort through it all. Just as long as it all comes out before the 2018 midterm elections, it’s all good and hopefully it will show McConnell and Ryan just what the electorate thinks about their obstruction.
So it's a vote fraud campaign.
Why nor? It worked so well for Air America. The only question is how mamy charities will they rip off this time?
“Liberal billionaire George Soros.” Is that a reference to “former Nazi collaborator liberal billionaire George Soros”?
Why is it that liberals claim to hate nazis, when their ranks include the likes of a reported former nazi collaborator, former KKK Grand Doofus, and the father-in-law of former presidential candidate?
How many others waiting to be outed?
I wonder if they allow WHITE immigrants to participate?
No doubt that God is on the side of the believers for sure.
I would love to think that Sessions is working hard right now at digging up the goods.
Any way you look at it , we will WIN!!!.........
The President said even if we beg him to stop winning we’ll just keep winning!
I’m not tired of winning!!!
