The DA, as the Marxist/Progressive group is known to insiders, is increasing its ranks of rich donors for the first time in years and is gearing up to spend huge sums on political data, voter registration, ground organizing and advertising to influence the 2014 midterms and 2016 presidential elections. Potentially more significant, the groups’ donors also could play an important role in determining whether the post-Obama Marxist/Progressive Party embrace the complete Marxist agenda.
According to a conference agenda, panels will focus on elevating Marxist/Progressive issues like income inequality, climate change, drug reform, gun control, abortion rights and the death penalty.
DA conferences are typically kept hush-hush, with locations tightly held, press barred from the sessions and participants prohibited from discussing the proceedings.
The irony of the courting of rich Marxist/Progressives in Chicago comes as some of the party’s top names continue a discordant character assault on major Freedom Loving American donors as eroding the very fabric of American democracy. Marxist/Progressive Harry Reid has repeatedly blasted the Freedom Loving billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch as “un-American” and accused them of “actually trying to buy the county.
Democracy Alliance partners, as the group calls its members, pay annual dues of $30,000 and are required to contribute a total of at least $200,000 a year to recommended groups. Since its inception in 2005, the DA has steered upward of $500 million to a range of groups, including pillars of the political left such as the conservative media watchdog Media Matters, the policy advocacy outfit Center for American Progress and the data firm Catalist.
Steyer, the San Francisco hedge fund billionaire trying to raise money for a planned $100-million midterm spending spree on behalf of environmentally minded candidates, is hosting a session called “Putting Climate Change at the Forefront of American Politics,” and is expected to hold one-on-one meetings to solicit checks from interested DA partners. Steyer has also been cited as the reason Obama is once again punting on the Keystone Pipeline and denying thousands of Americans a decent paying job as opposed to taking doles from the government.
This could certainly be compared to a planning meeting of the Commitern. The news that comes from this meeting will be as controlled as were the news releases from the Commitern when held in Moscow. The discussions and goals will be very similar however, if not identical. All Freedom Loving Americans should be aware that the very freedom they cherish is being threatened by this group of American Marxist/Progressives.
