FreedomWorks prepares 9/12 March on Washington

The conservative group FreedomWorks and other Tea Party organizations are preparing for their March on Washington on September 12 as part of the 9/12 Project, a conservative movement Fox News personality Glenn Beck started last year.

Unlike Beck’s recent “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington, D.C., the 9/12 March on Washington is a political movement aimed at garnering support for conservative candidates and rallying the conservative voter base nationwide.

“The general theme [this year] is ‘We Will Remember in November,’” FreedomWorks president and CEO Matt Kibbe told The Daily Caller. “Last year, it was literally almost an open stage where we invited various Tea Party leaders to come up and speak for a couple of minutes. It made that event special because there wasn’t any ‘rock star’ speakers – there was just people.”

Kibbe said the Tea Party’s grassroots leaders from around the country are the focus of the event because they’re the ones on the ground doing all the hard work.

Ana Puig, an immigrant from Brazil and co-chair of Pennsylvania’s Kitchen Table Patriots, said she plans to talk about the similarities between government takeovers in America now and what she witnessed as a child growing up in Latin America.

“What I’m going to lean towards is what’s happening here, under this administration, with the infiltration of the education system, the implementation of class warfare, voter fraud that we witnessed back in 2008 in Minnesota and brainwashing with all channels of communication,” Puig said in a phone interview with TheDC.

Puig, a mother of four, thinks FreedomWorks’ focus on local Tea Party leaders lets local leaders like her showcase their ability to get involved and make a difference.

“If somebody like me can do it [organize a local Tea Party chapter], anybody can do it,” she said. “I’m tired of the excuse of people saying to me, ‘I can’t believe you’re doing this, thank you so much, but I don’t have the time because my kids have soccer.’ Well, guess what? My kids have soccer too.”

Diana Reimer, organizer of Philadelphia’s Tea Party Patriots, an amalgam of eight different and separately run local Tea Party groups, said she’s going to talk about unity.

“As the coordinator for Tea Party Patriots in Philadelphia, I reach out and try to connect with as many groups as possible around Philadelphia, throughout Pennsylvania and beyond,” Reimer said.

Kibbe said FreedomWorks decided to add a little more structure to this year’s 9/12 March on Washington.

“This year, the emphasis is still going to be on the local leaders but we’re going to structure the event a little more specifically around the 10 issues in the Contract FROM America,” Kibbe said.

The Contract FROM America is a creation of Houston-area Tea Partier Ryan Hecker aimed at keeping RINOs, or Republicans in Name Only, and conservative Democrats signed on to Tea Party promises, like protecting the Constitution, cutting spending, lowering taxes and eliminating government-run health care.

Kibbe said FreedomWorks is bringing in some star power this year, though, as a way to connect conservative media, conservative politicians and regular people from around the country.

    I can’t account for why Beck chose to make his rally apolitical in a cycle where winning or losing politically is everything. But I do expect 9/12 to be a political Woodstock for principle conservatives. Hey, Glenn, I’ve got some signs to make ….

    Gingrich and Armey are both fraudsters and conmen. They speak a good game but stab you in the back with their traitrous votes in congress.

    Both are closet marxcist neocons and fraudsters.

        How is that 1994 conservative revolution led by Newt-fraudster working for ya?

        Big government and mass invasion continued when Newt was speaker. Unfortunately you are too gullible to figure out that fraudsters like Newt, Armey, McCain infiltrated the Conservative movmement and undermined and subverted this great nation in every way.

        Newt-scozzafava gingrich is a fraudster and ignorant people like you need to wake up and smell the closet marxists.

        newt is playing a double deception game. He talks conservative but votes marx.

        Google “The real newt” and his voting record.

          Sanjay. Newt’s takeover of the HOuse was classic stuff. He dragged Clinton kicking and screaming into a balanced budget and welfare reform. NO amount of rewriting history from idiots like you will have any effect on that. I have seen numerous Gingrich speeches and I don’t need some spiteful illiterate’s links to make my decisions for me. So stuff it.

  • truebearing

    I sincerely hope the event draws a million people, because despite the success and positive feeling Beck’s rally generated, we need a political show of force with a specific political message. Elections are political events, not religious, and the Tea Party is the brightest hope for turning away from the Statism that Progressives are forcing down our throats.

    A word to teapartypatriot64: you are at best a fool, and more likely a Soros troll, and a knave. Nothing you have written suggests you are a Tea Party member, or a patriot. Whatever they are paying you is too much.

  • teapartypatriot64

    FreedomWorks and Americans for Prosperity both originated from a campaign called Citizens for a Sound Economy, which split in two in 2004. CSE was set up by businessman David Koch (Koch Industries), who has also promoted liberty and research organizations.

    FreedomWorks is primarily funded by individual donations. According to the media watchdog group Media Matters for America, FreedomWorks has also received funding from Verizon and SBC (now AT&T).[10] Other FreedomWorks funders have included Philip Morris and foundations controlled by the conservative Scaife family, according to tax filings and other records.[11][12] It also receives funding through the sale of insurance policies through which policyholders automatically become members of FreedomWorks.[13]

    FreedomWorks is closely tied to its founder, corporate lobbyist and former Republican Congressman Dick Armey, whose former lobbying firm DLA Piper that he resigned in August 2009, represents Bristol Myers Squibb, among other pharmaceutical companies.[14][8]

            …and as a tea partier, you aren’t alarmed just a bit by this is beyond imagination.

            Is the tea party truly grassroots, or is it the big corporations funding a network that appears to you, as a grassroots movement?

            You think for a second that massive, heavily funded coordination was not needed for the tea partiers to be so wildly successful up to this point? Are you so naive?

            So, which is it? On one thread you lefties are calling the Tea Partiers insignificant, racists, redneck, ignorant nothings and now they’re “wildly successful”.

            So, then we can assume you’ll no longer be calling them ignorant or racist?

          • ImpressedByHonesty

            I wouldn’t call them ignorant or racist unless it didn’t apply. Not all tea partiers are ignorant, nor are they all racist. But you’re fav news station tends to favor lots of ‘southern strategy’ type stuff. Acorn, ground zero mosque, Sherrod, the birthers, ‘take our country away from us’, immigration, Obama wants to discriminate against whites, etc, It feels pretty awkward to me, but plays like hotcakes. And fuels hatred at the very least, and ‘us against them’ the most. Ohh lookee there, theres’ a guy whom just proclaimed ‘burn the koran day’. Shiny!

            Then all of the calls to ‘take back america’, ‘reclaim our constituion’,
            defeat the evil middle class unions, all of it finds a more receptive ear. Its good politics. It was for the southern strategy as dem Prez Johnson proclaimed “We’re gonna lose the south for a generation” as he signed the civil rights legislation.

            And it works right now. At least to a good measure. Don’t shoot the messenger.

        • truebearing

          Notice how the Soros trolls have glued their lying asses to the Tea Party story. They are still freaked out about the Beck rally, and are scared to death there will be another show of force that they can’t match. They are getting desparatesince we aal know Congressional hearings can lead to investigations, and ultimately jail.

          Maybe Al Sharpton will have yet another counter-rally and pay 50 crackheads to march with him, like his last “rally”.

          Maybe “grassroots Trumpka” will twist enough arms off to get a thousand people for his Thugs-R-Us rally.

          Maybe if the Commies lie (and you know they will) and tell everyone their rally is supporting Beck they can get some decent numbers.

      • truebearing

        “Our computers”? That’s an odd comment (how you). Generally one wouldn’t respond in the collective….. oh, that’s right, you’re a Commie.

      If you guys were to believed, and you aren’t because you have zero credibility, then every grass roots org around the country ( and even Italy)is a stooge for two men and aren’t doing this because of what they believe like small constitution government.

        You had bake sales to go to Beck-a-Palooza? Thats a lot of cookie dough to pay for so many air-conditioned, chartered buses. I hope you brought your bible.

        But I hear you, the big dollars and time I and many others have given thru orgs like MoveOn and Bold Progressives, and then get hit by the likes of folk like you saying its all Soros all the time, is a bit odd.

        But Soros pushes for policies that may raise his billionaire taxes and force his companies to spend more to be good wall street corporate citizens. Kochs’ 35 billion came from oil. He profits if our country stays addicted to that oil. As you guys dumb down the clean energy debate, Koch racks up the billions like scattered marbles picked up off the floor. Billion by billion– as you do his bidding– just as the heavily poll-tested slogans he helped fund were designed to have you do.

            And Soros gave 5mil seed money to MoveOn back when Clinton was president like, 11 years ago. Prove how Soros has been so influential to the org since then. You guys are making the case against Soros, so burdens on you. Or would you just rather pant breathlessly and call names?

Where is the ‘plenty’ that you speak of? U.S. oil production peaked in 1970! Even your oil ‘boy’ T. Boone pickens writes: “we spent $475 billion on foreign oil in 2008 alone. That’s money taken out of our economy and sent to foreign nations, and it will continue to drain the life from our economy for as long as we fail to stop the bleeding.
            Projected over the next 10 years the cost will be $10 trillion – it will be the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of mankind.”

            Oh so you were being dishonest. I gotcha ya. Fair and balanced it is. See they have differing views on their station unlike the others that have sycophants. You’d know this if you actually watched FOXnews. You’d also know that the straight news is the same as you get on the other stations. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the op-ed section and straight news are the same. I can understand how you might get them confused if you don’t actually watch. Now I can easily counter your point by simply stating how Obama was bought and paid for by GE. Do you know what networks are own by GE? How are their ratings? Do they even try to be balanced?

            So is Obama bought and paid for by G.E.? I thought you righties said it was the oil industry, then the health care industry, then the Islamic terrorists, then Wall Street, then the middle class– I mean Unions. Make up your mind on what falsehood you perpetrate.

            When you hear right wing slant all day/all night, the balanced journalists seem like communists That’s why I can only stand an hour a day. It’s all about the lack of coverage of data, context, history when Fox News, mostly, and other news networks don’t give reverence to. What happened to the Who, What, Why, When tenets of journalism?. Now its’ about “Wait ’til you see what Congresswoman X has to say about Obamacare’, or “…this economy has been a disaster since Obama came in office”– a thousand things a day that Fox journalists(not commentators) slant every day you take breath.

            And you righties never responded to the million bucks that Fox News gave to the Repubs. Isn’t NewsCorp primarily a media company? …isn’t a free press what a strong democracy requires? Or did G.E. get out of selling refirgerators?

          Soros’s role is well documented on Discoverthenetworks.org. Here is a short list of the groups he directly supports:

          Organizations that, in recent years, have received direct funding and assistance from George Soros and his Open Society Institute (OSI) include the following. (Comprehensive profiles of each are available in the “Groups” section of DiscoverTheNetworks.org):

          Alliance for Justice: Best known for its activism vis a vis the appointment of federal judges, this group consistently depicts Republican judicial nominees as “extremists.”

          America Coming Together: Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to coordinate and organize pro-Democrat voter-mobilization programs.

          America Votes: Soros also played a major role in creating this group, whose get-out-the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters.

          American Civil Liberties Union: This group opposes virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government. It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board.

          American Constitution Society for Law and Policy: This Washington, DC-based think tank seeks to move American jurisprudence to the left by recruiting, indoctrinating, and mobilizing young law students, helping them acquire positions of power. It also provides leftist Democrats with a bully pulpit from which to denounce their political adversaries.

          American Family Voices: This group creates and coordinates media campaigns charging Republicans with wrongdoing.

          American Friends Service Committee: This group views the United States as the principal cause of human suffering around the world. As such, it favors America’s unilateral disarmament, the dissolution of American borders, amnesty for illegal aliens, the abolition of the death penalty, and the repeal of the Patriot Act.

          American Immigration Law Foundation: This group supports amnesty for illegal aliens, on whose behalf it litigates against the U.S. government.

          American Library Association: This group has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s War on Terror — most particularly, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, which it calls “a present danger to the constitutional rights and privacy rights of library users.”

          The American Prospect, Inc.: This corporation trains and mentors young leftwing journalists, and organizes strategy meetings for leftist leaders.

          Amnesty International: This organization directs a grossly disproportionate share of its criticism for human rights violations at the United States and Israel.

          Arab American Institute Foundation: The Arab American Institute denounces the purportedly widespread civil liberties violations directed against Arab Americans in the post-9/11 period, and characterizes Israel as a brutal oppressor of the Palestinian people.

          Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now: This group conducts voter mobilization drives on behalf of leftist Democrats. These initiatives have been notoriously marred by fraud and corruption.

          Bill of Rights Defense Committee: This group provides a detailed blueprint for activists interested in getting their local towns, cities, and even college campuses to publicly declare their opposition to the Patriot Act, and to designate themselves “Civil Liberties Safe Zones.” The organization also came to the defense of self-described radical attorney Lynne Stewart, who was convicted in 2005 of providing material support for terrorism.

          Brennan Center for Justice: This think tank/legal activist group generates scholarly studies, mounts media campaigns, files amicus briefs, gives pro bono support to activists, and litigates test cases in pursuit of radical “change.”

          Brookings Institution: This organization has been involved with a variety of internationalist and state-sponsored programs, including one that aspires to facilitate the establishment of a U.N.-dominated world government. Brookings Fellows have also called for additional global collaboration on trade and banking; the expansion of the Kyoto Protocol; and nationalized health insurance for children. Nine Brookings economists signed a petition opposing President Bush’s tax cuts in 2003.

          Campaign for America’s Future: This group supports tax hikes, socialized medicine, and a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs.

          Campus Progress: A project of the Soros-bankrolled Center for American Progress, this group seeks to “strengthen progressive voices on college and university campuses, counter the growing influence of right-wing groups on campus, and empower new generations of progressive leaders.”

          Catholics for a Free Choice: This nominally Catholic organization supports women’s right to abortion-on-demand.

          Center for American Progress: This leftist think tank is headed by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta, works closely with Hillary Clinton, and employs numerous former Clinton administration staffers. It is committed to “developing a long-term vision of a progressive America” and “providing a forum to generate new progressive ideas and policy proposals.”

          Center for Community Change: This group recruits and trains activists to spearhead leftist “political issue campaigns.” Promoting increased funding for social welfare programs by bringing “attention to major national issues related to poverty,” the Center bases its training programs on the techniques taught by the famed radical organizer Saul Alinsky.

          Center for Constitutional Rights: This pro-Castro organization is a core member of the open borders lobby, has opposed virtually all post-9/11 anti-terrorism measures by the U.S. government, and alleges that American injustice provokes acts of international terrorism.

          Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: Reasoning from the premise that tax cuts generally help only the wealthy, this organization advocates greater tax expenditures on social welfare programs for low earners.

          Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington: This group litigates and brings ethics charges against “government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests” and “betray the public trust.” Almost all of its targets are Republicans.

          Coalition for an International Criminal Court: This group seeks to subordinate American criminal-justice procedures to those of an international court.

          Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund: Defenders of Wildlife opposes oil exploration in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. It condemns logging, ranching, mining, and even the use of recreational motorized vehicles as activities that are destructive to the environment.

          Democracy Alliance: This self-described “liberal organization” aims to raise $200 million to develop a funding clearinghouse for leftist groups. Soros is a major donor to this group.

          Democracy 21: This group is a staunch supporter of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, also known as the McCain-Feingold Act.

          Democratic Party: Soros’ funding activities are devoted largely to helping the Democratic Party solidify its power base. In a November 2003 interview, Soros stated that defeating President Bush in 2004 “is the central focus of my life” … “a matter of life and death.” He pledged to raise $75 million to defeat Bush, and personally donated nearly a third of that amount to anti-Bush organizations. “America under Bush,” he said, “is a danger to the world, and I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is.” Claiming that “the Republican party has been captured by a bunch of extremists,” Soros accuses the Bush administration of following a “supremacist ideology” in whose rhetoric he claims to hear echoes of “Nazi slogans.”

          Earthjustice: This group seeks to place severe restrictions on how U.S. land and waterways may be used. It opposes most mining and logging initiatives, commercial fishing businesses, and the use of motorized vehicles in undeveloped areas.

          EMILY’s List: This political network raises money for Democratic female political candidates who support unrestricted access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand.

          Feminist Majority: Characterizing the United States as an inherently sexist nation, this group focuses on “advancing the legal, social and political equality of women with men, countering the backlash to women’s advancement, and recruiting and training young feminists to encourage future leadership for the feminist movement in the United States.”

          Free Press: This “media reform” organization has worked closely with many notable leftists and such organizations as Media Matters for America, Air America Radio, Global Exchange, Code Pink, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, the Revolutionary Communist Party, Mother Jones magazine, and Pacifica Radio.

          Funding Exchange: Dedicated to the concept of philanthropy as a vehicle for social change, this organization pairs leftist donors and foundations with likeminded groups and activists who are dedicated to bringing about their own version of “progressive” change and social justice. Many of these grantees assume that American society is rife with racism, discrimination, exploitation, and inequity and needs to be overhauled via sustained education, activism, and social agitation.

          Gamaliel Foundation: Modeling its tactics on those of the radical Sixties activist Saul Alinsky, this group takes a strong stand against current homeland security measures and immigration restrictions.

          Human Rights First: This group supports open borders and the rights of illegal aliens; charges that the Patriot Act severely erodes Americans’ civil liberties; has filed amicus curiae briefs on behalf of terror suspect Jose Padilla; and deplores the Guantanamo Bay detention facilities.

          Human Rights Watch: This group directs a disproportionate share of its criticism at the United States and Israel. It opposes the death penalty in all cases, and supports open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.

          Immigrant Legal Resource Center: This group claims to have helped gain amnesty for some three million illegal aliens in the U.S., and in the 1980s was part of the sanctuary movement which sought to grant asylum to refugees from the failed Communist states of Central America.

          Independent Media Institute: This group provides leftist organizations with “strategic communications consulting, training, coaching, networking opportunities and concrete tools” to help them “achieve their social justice goals.”

          Institute for Policy Studies: This think tank has long supported Communist and anti-American causes around the world. Viewing capitalism as a breeding ground for “unrestrained greed,” IPS seeks to provide a corrective to “unrestrained markets and individualism.” Professing an unquestioning faith in the righteousness of the United Nations, it aims to bring American foreign policy under UN control.

          Institute for Women’s Policy Research: This group views the U.S. as a nation rife with discrimination against women, and publishes research to draw attention to this alleged state of affairs. It also advocates unrestricted access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, stating that “access to abortion is essential to the economic well-being of women and girls.”

          International Crisis Group: One of this organization’s leading figures is its Mideast Director, Robert Malley, who was a President Bill Clinton’s Special Assistant for Arab-Israeli Affairs. His analysis of the Mideast conflict is markedly pro-Palestinian.

          Joint Victory Campaign 2004: Founded by George Soros and Harold Ickes, this group was a major fundraising entity for Democrats during the 2004 election cycle. It collected contributions (including large amounts from Soros personally) and disbursed them to two other groups, America Coming Together and the Media Fund, which also worked on behalf of Democrats.

          Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law: This group views America as an unremittingly racist nation; uses the courts to mandate race-based affirmative action preferences in business and academia; has filed briefs against the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to limit the wholesale granting of green cards and to identify potential terrorists; condemns the Patriot Act; and calls on Americans to “recognize the contribution” of illegal aliens.

          League of United Latin American Citizens: This group views America as a nation plagued by “an alarming increase in xenophobia and anti-Hispanic sentiment”; favors racial preferences; supports the legalization of illegal Hispanic aliens; opposes military surveillance of U.S. borders; opposes making English America’s official language; favors open borders; and rejects anti-terrorism legislation like the Patriot Act.

          League of Women Voters Education Fund: The League supports taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand; supports “motor-voter” registration, which allows anyone with a driver’s license to become a voter, regardless of citizenship status; and supports tax hikes and socialized medicine.

          Lynne Stewart Defense Committee: IRS records indicate that Soros’s Open Society Institute made a September 2002 grant of $20,000 to this organization. Stewart was the criminal-defense attorney who was later convicted for abetting her client, the “blind sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, in terrorist activities connected with his Islamic Group.

          MADRE: This international women’s organization deems America the world’s foremost violator of human rights. As such, it seeks to “communicat[e] the real-life impact of U.S. policies on women and families confronting violence, poverty and repression around the world,” and to “demand alternatives to destructive U.S. policies.” It also advocates unrestricted access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand.

          Malcolm X Grassroots Movement: This group views the U.S. as a nation replete with racism and discrimination against blacks; seeks to establish an independent black nation in the southeastern United States; and demands reparations for slavery.

          Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition: This group calls for the expansion of civil rights and liberties for illegal aliens; laments that illegal aliens in America are commonly subjected to “worker exploitation”; supports tuition-assistance programs for illegal aliens attending college; and characterizes the Patriot Act as a “very troubling” assault on civil liberties.

          Media Fund: Soros played a major role in creating this group, whose purpose was to conceptualize, produce, and place political ads on television, radio, print, and the Internet.

          Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund: This group advocates open borders, free college tuition for illegal aliens, lowered educational standards to accommodate Hispanics, and voting rights for criminals. In MALDEF’s view, supporters of making English the official language of the United States are “motivated by racism and anti-immigrant sentiments,” while advocates of sanctions against employers reliant on illegal labor seek to discriminate against “brown-skinned people.”

          Meyer, Suozzi, English and Klein, PC: This influential defender of Big Labor is headed by Democrat operative Harold Ickes.

          Midwest Academy: This entity trains radical activists in the tactics of direct action, targeting, confrontation, and intimidation.

          Migration Policy Institute: This group seeks to create “a North America with gradually disappearing border controls … with permanent migration remaining at moderate levels.”

          Military Families Speak Out: This group ascribes the U.S. invasion of Iraq to American imperialism and lust for oil.

          MoveOn.org: This Web-based organization supports Democratic political candidates through fundraising, advertising, and get-out-the-vote drives.

          Ms. Foundation for Women: This group laments what it views as the widespread and enduring flaws of American society: racism, sexism, homophobia, and the violation of civil rights and liberties. It focuses its philanthropy on groups that promote affirmative action for women, unfettered access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, amnesty for illegal aliens, and big government generally.

          NARAL Pro-Choice America: This group supports taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, and works to elect pro-abortion Democrats.

          NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund: The NAACP supports racial preferences in employment and education, as well as the racial gerrymandering of voting districts. Underpinning its support for race preferences is the fervent belief that white racism in the United States remains an intractable, largely undiminished, phenomenon.

          The Nation Institute: This nonprofit entity sponsors leftist conferences, fellowships, awards for radical activists, and journalism internships.

          National Abortion Federation: This group opposes any restrictions on abortion at either the state or federal levels, and champions the introduction of unrestricted abortion into developing regions of the world.

          National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy: This group depicts the United States as a nation in need of dramatic structural change financed by philanthropic organizations. It overwhelmingly promotes grant-makers and grantees with leftist agendas, while criticizing their conservative counterparts.

          National Council for Research on Women: This group supports big government, high taxes, military spending cuts, increased social welfare spending, and the unrestricted right to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand.

          National Council of La Raza: This group lobbies for racial preferences, bilingual education, stricter hate-crime laws, mass immigration, and amnesty for illegal aliens.

          National Council of Women’s Organizations: This group views the United States as a nation rife with injustice against girls and women. It advocates high levels of spending for social welfare programs, and supports race and gender preferences for minorities and women in business and academia.

          National Immigration Forum: Opposing the enforcement of present immigration laws, this organization urges the American government to “legalize” en masse all illegal aliens currently in the United States who have no criminal records, and to dramatically increase the number of visas available for those wishing to migrate to the U.S. The Forum is particularly committed to opening the borders to unskilled, low-income workers, and immediately making them eligible for welfare and social service programs.

          National Immigration Law Center: This group seeks to win unrestricted access to government-funded social welfare programs for illegal aliens.

          National Lawyers Guild: This group promotes open borders; seeks to weaken America’s intelligence-gathering agencies; condemns the Patriot Act as an assault on civil liberties; rejects capitalism as an unviable economic system; has rushed to the defense of convicted terrorists and their abettors; and generally opposes all U.S. foreign policy positions, just as it did during the Cold War when it sided with the Soviets.

          National Organization for Women: This group advocates the unfettered right to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand; seeks to “eradicate racism, sexism and homophobia” from American society; attacks Christianity and traditional religious values; and supports gender-based preferences for women.

          National Priorities Project: This group supports government-mandated redistribution of wealth — through higher taxes and greater expenditures on social welfare programs. NPP exhorts the government to redirect a significant portion of its military funding toward public education, universal health insurance, environmentalist projects, and welfare programs.

          National Security Archive Fund: This group collects and publishes declassified documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act to a degree that compromises American national security and the safety of intelligence agents.

          National Women’s Law Center: This group supports taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand; lobbies against conservative judicial appointees; advocates increased welfare spending to help low-income mothers; and favors higher taxes for the purpose of generating more funds for such government programs as Medicaid, food stamps, welfare, foster care, health care, child-support enforcement, and student loans.

          Natural Resources Defense Council: One of the most influential environmentalist lobbying groups in the United States, the Council claims a membership of one million people.

          Pacifica Foundation: This entity owns and operates Pacifica Radio, awash from its birth with the socialist-Marxist rhetoric of class warfare and hatred for capitalism.

          Peace and Security Funders Group: This is an association of more than 50 foundations that give money to leftist anti-war and environmentalist causes. Its members tend to depict America as the world’s chief source of international conflict, environmental destruction, and economic inequalities.

          People for the American Way: This group opposes the Patriot Act, anti-terrorism measures generally, and the allegedly growing influence of the “religious right.”

          Physicians for Human Rights: This group is selectively and disproportionately critical of the United States and Israel in its condemnations of human rights violations.

          Physicians for Social Responsibility: This is an anti-U.S.-military organization that also embraces the tenets of radical environmentalism.

          Planned Parenthood: This group is the largest abortion provider in the United States and advocates taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand.

          Ploughshares Fund: This public grantmaking foundation opposes America’s development of a missile defense system, and contributes to many organizations that are highly critical of U.S. foreign policies and military ventures.

          Prison Moratorium Project: This initiative was created in 1995 for the express purpose of working for the elimination of all prisons in the United States and the release of all inmates. Reasoning from the premise that incarceration is never an appropriate means of dealing with crime, it deems American society’s inherent inequities the root of all criminal behavior.

          Project Vote: This is the voter-mobilization arm of the Soros-funded ACORN. A persistent pattern of lawlessness and corruption has followed ACORN/Project Vote activities over the years.

          Proteus Fund: This foundation directs its philanthropy toward a number of radical leftwing organizations.

          Public Citizen Foundation: Public Citizen seeks increased government intervention and litigation against corporations — a practice founded on the notion that American corporations, like the capitalist system of which they are a part, are inherently inclined toward corruption.

          Sentencing Project: Asserting that prison-sentencing patterns are racially discriminatory, this initiative advocates voting rights for felons.

          Sojourners: This evangelical Christian ministry preaches radical leftwing politics. During the 1980s it championed Communist revolution in Central America and chastised U.S. policy-makers for their tendency “to assume the very worst about their Soviet counterparts.” More recently, Sojourners has taken up the cause of environmental activism, opposed welfare reform as a “mean-spirited Republican agenda,” and mounted a defense of affirmative action.

          Thunder Road Group: This political consultancy, in whose creation Soros had a hand, coordinates strategy for the Media Fund, America Coming Together, and America Votes.

          Tides Foundation and Tides Center: Tides is a major funder of the radical Left.

          Urban Institute: This research organization favors socialized medicine, expansion of the federal welfare bureaucracy, and tax hikes for higher income-earners.

          USAction Education Fund: USAction lists its priorities as: “fighting the right wing agenda”; “building grassroots political power”; winning “social, racial and economic justice for all”; supporting a system of taxpayer-funded socialized medicine; reversing “reckless tax cuts for millionaires and corporations” which shield the “wealthy” from paying their “fair share”; advocating for “pro-consumer and environmental regulation of corporate abuse”; “strengthening progressive voices on local, state and national issues”; and working to “register, educate and get out the vote … [to] help progressives get elected at all levels of government.”

          YWCA World Office, Switzerland: The YWCA opposes abstinence education; supports universal access to taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand; and opposes school vouchers.

          Want me to supply the list he indirectly supports next?

          • jonavark

            tb.. these idiots will read the first 146 characters and moveOn. You have to keep it real short with these people. They’re like the Borg. With a collective case of A.D.D

          • hampton

            The question is, why don’t you apply the same standards to the Koch Brothers as you do to George Soros? The Koch money has its roots in Stalinist Russia and they are supporting as many right wing groups as Soros is supporting on the left.

            You’re very good at stringing together insults and sprewing wingnut conspiracy theories, Truebearing, but you can’t explain why your corporate overlords, the Kochs, are any different from George Soros. All of them use their billions to push a political agenda that supports personal gain. You’re a hypocrite if you condemn Soros without condemning the Kochs.

          • ImpressedByHonesty

            Soros for President. LOL!

            Nice list, although I’d quibble with some of the ‘quaint’ descriptions. I think the most evil one is probably America Votes… whose get-out-the-vote campaigns targeted likely Democratic voters.

            Just flat out evil!

            Next, do another immigrant, named, hmmm… Rupert Murdoch, maybe?

            Go ahead, flame and troll away!!!

          • ImpressedByHonesty

            Please tell us which rightie website you pasted this from. As you non-ADD repubbies read thru this entire list, all of you may have had a fleeting thought that these organizations that Soros supports must all have to do with putting MONEY IN HIS POCKET!!!

            Wow that Soros is a greedy, evildoer. Of course I can’t see how Koch, the 35 billionaire oil man that he is, could stand to make profit off of his political exploits.

        • truebearing

          So you admit to contributing to the groups who are subverting the constitution, undermining the economy, overthrowing the government, and negating the Bill of rights, all so that they can impose a Marxist/Progressive Statist regime, that will give up this nations sovereignty to an international government.

          I don’t know if your admission was driven by stupidity, naivete, or you are so used to lying you have lost any grounding in reality, but I do know, from your history here, that honest disclosure wasn’t your intent. With you I always figure your comments are equal parts stupidity and dishonesty. Why else would you fall for the Progressive lies.

          Your Thrallmasters are going to whack your pee-pee for that accidental blunder into honesty.

      Is Soros paying you well?
