Today’s edition of “George Soros Meddles” is brought to you by ten-week-old political advocacy group Demand Justice – a Soros-linked organization which has pledged $5 million towards a “multi-platform” campaign to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the US Supreme Court.
Headed by former Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon and longtime Obama aide Christopher Kang as chief counsel, Demand Justice was created and financed by nonprofit organization the “Sixteen Thirty Fund,” which has received millions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), according to the Daily Caller‘s Kevin Daley and Andrew Kerr.
As we reported two weeks ago, Demand Justice intends to fight “Trump’s hateful vision for America” by opposing his Judicial picks across the country – including the Supreme Court.
The campaign will feature television spots promoting embattled Democratic Senate incumbents in West Virginia, Indiana, and North Dakota, who face competitive Republican challengers this November.
They will also run ads in Maine and Alaska, urging GOP Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to oppose the nomination. Collins and Murkowski are pro choice moderates who have broken with their party on Obamacare repeal and federal funding for Planned Parenthood. The spots urge the senators to protect abortion access by withholding support for nominees who oppose the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. –Daily Caller
The Sixteen Thirty Fund collected some $2.2 million in contributions from the OSPC between 2012 and 2016 – while more recent records are not available. The OSPC, meanwhile, is virtually indistinct from Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF), the 87-year-old’s grant-giving and philanthropic network.
The [Sixteen Thirty] Fund is largely financed by a handful of donors. Financial statements filed with state oversight officials in 2014 show just three contributors accounted for 70 percent — or some $11.5 million — of the Fund’s total donations and grant revenue. Disclosure forms filed with the same agency in 2016 present similar facts. Fewer than five donors gave $13.3 million to the Fund, representing 63 percent of their donations.
One of those donors is the OSPC. The Center’s tax forms show the Soros group gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Fund each year between 2012 and 2016,
