Progressive Group Set to Spend Millions to Stop Trump SCOTUS Pick. Look Who's Funding Them

A new progressive political advocacy group has come out and stated they will put up $5 million into an effort to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed for the Supreme Court. This, of course, is not a big shock as leftists are perplexed at the possibility that Roe v. Wade might be overturned and the “right” to murder the unborn stripped from them.

It just so happens that the group has ties to financier George Soros. This man literally has his hands in anything and everything, using his vast fortune to destroy all that America stands for in hopes of establishing a mythical socialist utopia. In reality, he likely knows such a thing is impossible and is seeking to consolidate power and influence for himself.

A Daily Caller News Foundation review has found that the group’s primary financial supporter is a nonprofit to whom Soros has given millions.

The group, Demand Justice (DJ), is organized and financed by a 501(c)(4) called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which collected some $2.2 million in contributions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), one of Soros’ primary donation vehicles, between 2012 and 2016.

The 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, the last year in which records are publicly accessible. The Center gave the Fund $350,000 in 2012, $772,000 in 2013, $125,000 in 2014, $550,000 in 2015, and $481,483 in 2016.

Demand Justice was formed in the spring of 2018 as the progressive counterpart to a constellation of conservative advocacy groups which advertise and organize around judicial confirmations. Republicans have significantly outpaced Democrats in this space in recent years, given conservative voters’ sustained interest in the federal courts.

Liberals are distraught about having a majority of conservatives on the SCOTUS bench, but in reality, even if Roe v. Wade does get overturned, it’s not the end for the battle against abortion. Not even close. We must also tackle a lot of the smaller bits of legislation — the majority of which was passed by the pro-life movement — that allows abortions after a certain time limit.

Let’s hope Kavanaugh gets confirmed without much in the way of delay.
