    Now here's a report worth seeing, lol. No two years worth of drama this time. It seems the Dems have a not-very-well hidden network feeding their favorite left-wing causes a lot of money.

    Fox summary: ‘Shadowy’ dark money network behind left-wing causes exposed in new report

    "An expansive network of “shadowy” dark money donors has grown to rival the influence of the conservative Koch brothers -- pumping millions into left-wing causes ranging from health care to climate change to abortion -- all while flying well under the radar of public scrutiny, according to an explosive new report obtained by Fox News."

    "The report, by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, describes a band of nonprofits operating under the banner of Washington-based philanthropy company Arabella Advisors. Those “pop up groups” are housed in four Arabella-controlled “sister” nonprofits, according to the report: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Hopewell Fund and Windward Fund."

    CRC Summary: Special Report Unveils Vast “Dark Money” Network on the Left

    "The political Left often criticizes—and the mainstream media frequently report on—the network of center-right nonprofits funded by billionaire entrepreneurs Charles and David Koch. But few politicos know of a left-wing leviathan in Washington, D.C., with a reach rivaling that of the Koch network.

    This study by the Capital Research Center documents a shadowy web into which nearly $600 million flowed in 2017, the most recent year for which tax returns are available. Operating under the aegis of “philanthropy,” this network is housed in and staffed by a for-profit, privately held consultancy called Arabella Advisors, LLC.* Arabella manages four nonprofit entities—the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund—each of which shares an address and interlocking officers with Arabella."

    I expect this is the first of many such reports and revelations that the Dems will soon be facing. The mask is off, and the public is about to see the Truth!

    "Dark money"? "Shadowy"? That's just a deceitful use of language. People are free to associate and donate politically as long as no laws are broken. What about the shadowy, dark money in Trump's tax returns? This seems to be just a distraction from the fact that some are willing to demonize one side while totally ignoring the fact that their side does it too.

    Maybe it's that stimulus money that disappeared under Obama.
