Soros calls huddle of leftist billionaires

November 15, 2010 19:11

Formed in 2005 as a way for leftist millionaires to pool their funds to push the leftist agenda, the Democracy Alliance has funded millions of dollars to hundreds of leftist groups. They are meeting again today (11-15-10).

Billionaire George Soros who funds hundreds of leftist groups through his Open Society Institute was in attendance as well as Peter B. Lewis the Board Chairman  of Progressive Insurance. Together Soros and Lewis teamed up to match each others gifts to America Coming Together ($10 million) and ($2.5 million). That’s why its called ‘Progressive’ Insurance.

While America Coming Together ceased operations in 2005 it and are typical of the type of groups this gang funds.

Extensive background on the groups can be found at Discover the

On America Coming Together:

America Coming Together (ACT) organized the Democratic Party‘s Government Union wing, which is represented by such leftist labor unions as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and AFSCME. ACT was one of the 33 “progressive” member organizations constituting the America Votes coalition. It was also a member group of the so-called Democrat Shadow Party, a nationwide network of non-profit activist groups pursuing leftist agendas and campaigning aggressively for Democrat political candidates.

The original President of ACT was Ellen Malcolm. The Chief Executive Officer was Steven Rosenthal. The Treasurer (and also a Board Member) was Carl Pope. The Assistant Treasurer was Brian Foucart. Other Board Members included Ellen Malcolm (also an Assistant Treasurer), Anne Bartley, Hillary ClintonGina Glantz, Rob Glaser, Jonathan Lewis, Rob McKay, Minyon Moore, Cecile Richards, Jonathan T. Soros, and Antonio Villaraigosa.

During the 2004 election, ACT ran what its website called “the largest voter contact program in history,” with over 1,400 full-time paid canvassers — many of whom were discovered to be felons convicted of violent crimes — as well as thousands of volunteers working from 55 offices, contacting voters door-to-door and by phone.


“Today, MoveOn boasts an e-mail list of more than 3.2 million members. Its ten full-time staffers work from home, staying in touch via e-mail, instant messaging and weekly conference calls.”

“MoveOn uses its fundraising clout to push the Democratic Party to the left. This game plan was enunciated most clearly in an e-mail that MoveOn PAC Director Eli Pariser broadcast to the group’s financial supporters on December 9, 2004. Regarding MoveOn’s role in the Democratic Party, Pariser wrote, “For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base. But we can’t afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers. In the last year, grass-roots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the party doesn’t need corporate cash to be competitive. Now it’s our party: we bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back.”

“Apart from the more than $5 billion that Soros’ foundation network has donated to leftist groups like those listed here, Soros personally has made campaign contributions to such notable political candidates as Charles Rangel, Al Franken, Tom Udall, Joe Sestak, Sherrod Brown, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Ken Salazar, Patrick Leahy, John Kerry, Charles Schumer, Howard Dean, Bill Clinton, Tom Harkin, Jon Corzine, Joe Biden, Richard Durbin, Lane Evans, Dennis Kucinich, Maurice Hinchey, and Al Gore. He also has given large sums of money to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and the Democratic National Committee Services Corporation.

In October 2010, Soros announced that he was donating $1 million to Media Matters for America, which would use the money to hold “Fox [News] host Glenn Beck and others on the cable news channel accountable for their reporting.””
