Anti-Trump Resistance – Where’s the Money Coming From?
The Washington Free Beacon obtained unredacted 2015 tax forms from the organization Center for Community Change, which has been involved in the anti-Trump resistance. The organization doesn’t reveal their donors…except on the tax forms. The donor list is extensive and includes numerous “progressive” liberal groups, to include George Soros’ Open Society, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and others. The trail of monies flowing to the “resistance” is deep.
The Free Beacon reported,
“The Center for Community Change’s largest contribution was $3,000,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which was initially created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company. The Ford Foundation, which was first created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, added a $2,350,000 donation. The Open Society Foundation, a foundation run by liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros, gave $1,750,000 to the Center for Community Change.
Other donors to the organization include the California Endowment, which gave $524,500; the Marquerite Casey Foundation, which gave $515,000…
…The Center for Community Change Action, the “social welfare” (c)(4) arm of the group, additionally relies on a handful of donors for almost all of its funding, according to its documents that do not include the privacy redactions.
Donors to its “social welfare” arm in 2015 included Every Citizen Counts ($1,750,000 contribution), a nonprofit that was created by allies of Hillary Clinton to mobilize Latino and African-American voters; the Open Society Policy Center ($1,475,000), another Soros group; the Sixteen Thirty Fund ($610,000), a progressive advocacy group; Center for Community Change ($150,000); Services Employees International Union (SEIU) ($150,000); Atlantic Philanthropies ($75,000); and the Tides Foundation ($50,000), the largest liberal donor-advised network, among other funders.”
According to the Free Beacon, it is a network of “stealth funding.” Some of the people who sit on the board of Center for Community for Change are also on the boards of smaller organizations that receive donations from the larger group. An example would be the Emergent Fund, which has given money to Black Lives, Matter, United We Dream, and the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative, among others. Charlene Sinclair is the Center for Community Change’s Director of Reinvestment, and also sits on the board of the Emergent Fund.
The light at the end of the tunnel
Before everyone gets too concerned about the extent of the liberal influence (and you thought the “rich old white men” in the Conservatives were the problem) remember this: Donald J. Trump won the Presidency, not by all these rich liberal groups, but by the grass roots of America. GRASS ROOTS.
If the liberal media, and all these wealthy donor groups had real power to do anything but cause chaos, Donald Trump would not be President now. And the special elections that have been held since would not have been won by non-establishment people. But they have. As Americans who hate the garbage spread by the MSM and Democrats, we must stand together to defeat these blocks of liberal donors that continue to sow division and “resistance” to everything America stands for.
