    Donors of Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Group Revealed

    One should take the time to check Discover the Networks to see how much money these entities "donate" to politicians...

    Donors of Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Group Revealed


    (Updated) Center for Community Change's unredacted tax forms show stealth funders

    The hidden donors to a prominent anti-Trump "resistance" organization are revealed in unredacted tax forms obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

    The Center for Community Change Action, a Washington, D.C.-based progressive community organizing group that does not reveal its donors, has been involved in direct action against President Donald Trump and Republicans before and after the November elections. The organization's members sit on the boards of other prominent liberal activist groups.

    The Free Beacon has obtained the group's unredacted 2015 tax forms that shed light on its funders, who provide millions of dollars in assistance. The group appears to rely heavily on a few major liberal foundations, organizations, and unions.

    The Center for Community Change's largest contribution was $3,000,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which was initially created by Will Kellogg, the food manufacturer and founder of Kellogg Company. The Ford Foundation, which was first created by the founders of the Ford Motor Company, added a $2,350,000 donation. The Open Society Foundation, a foundation run by liberal billionaire mega-donor George Soros, gave $1,750,000 to the Center for Community Change.

    Other donors to the organization include the California Endowment, which gave $524,500; the Marquerite Casey Foundation, which gave $515,000; Fidelity Charitable Gift, which donated $505,100; and the National Immigration Law Center, which gave $316,000.

    The Center for Community Change Action, the "social welfare" (c)(4) arm of the group, additionally relies on a handful of donors for almost all of its funding, according to its documents that do not include the privacy redactions.

    Donors to its "social welfare" arm in 2015 included Every Citizen Counts ($1,750,000 contribution), a nonprofit that was created by allies of Hillary Clinton to mobilize Latino and African-American voters; the Open Society Policy Center ($1,475,000), another Soros group; the Sixteen Thirty Fund ($610,000), a progressive advocacy group; Center for Community Change ($150,000); Services Employees International Union (SEIU) ($150,000); Atlantic Philanthropies ($75,000); and the Tides Foundation ($50,000), the largest liberal donor-advised network, among other funders.

    The Center for Community Change Action has been involved with anti-Trump campaigns for some time now. The group's members also sit on the advisory boards of other prominent liberal organizations.

    Deepak Bhargava, the executive director of the Center for Community Change, sits on the advisory board of George Soros's Open Society Foundation.

    The "Families Fight Back" voter campaign was launched during the 2016 presidential election by the Center for Community Change Action, the Latino Victory Project, an immigration group co-founded by actress Eva Longoria, and America's Voice, a group that fights for a "direct, fair, and inclusive road to citizenship for immigrants in the United States without papers.",

    Soros, who last year vowed to spend $15 million to court Hispanic voters, was for months the sole funder of the Immigrant Voters Win PAC, which was part of the "Families Fight Back" campaign.
    Others involved with the Center for Community Change sit on boards of other resistance groups.

    The Emergent Fund, a fund that consists of the Solidaire Network, the Threshold Foundation, and the Woman's Donor Network, claims a goal of pushing back against "immediate threats" to "immigrants, women, Muslim and Arab-American communities, black people, LGBTQ communities, and all people of color."

    The Emergent Fund's advisory board, which decides what organizations receive money from the group, features individuals from a number of prominent liberal organizations.

    Charlene Sinclair, the director of reinvestment at the Center for Community Change, sits on the board of directors of the Emergent Fund, which surpassed its initial fundraising goal of $500,000 following its inception and quickly approved $205,000 in rapid-response grants at the end of last year.

    The Emergent Fund gives grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 and has provided financing to Black Lives Matter; the Center for Media Justice, which was created to "organize the most under-represented communities in a national movement for media rights"; the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative; and United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the United States.

    The Center for Community Change later joined United We Dream for nationwide immigration protests leading up to Trump's inauguration. United We Dream was additionally behind "sanctuary campus" anti-Trump protests across the country to protect undocumented students.

    Christina Jimenez, the co-founder and managing director of the United We Dream Network, herself attended high school and college as an undocumented immigrant.

    The Center for Community Change did not return a request for comment by press time.

    UPDATE 10:30 AM: Following publication, a representative from Fidelity Charitable said that the donations under their name was recommended from individual donors who have donor-advised fund accounts with the group, and do not represent the views or endorsement of Fidelity Charitable or Fidelity Investments.

    Ford additionally added that although the charity was started by Ford family members, it is no longer connected to the Ford Motor Company.

    Americans Outraged After Discovering What Leftist Kelloggs Has Been Sneaking Into Cereal Boxes

    With every box of cereal, you may be getting more than you bargained for.


    Young Conservatives reports
    From Freedom Daily:
    Next time you find yourself in the cereal aisle, make sure you check the brand of cereal you’re putting in your cart, because if you buy Kelloggs, you may be funding some dangerous causes you don’t agree with. This extends to some frozen foods and other dry goods the company makes too, who use the profits from these products to pay people and push measures that go against America and many people’s beliefs.
    With every purchase of Kelloggs products, the company is dishing out a deep-seated liberal agenda with cartoon characters like “Tony the Tiger” as the innocent face man for it.
    What are they doing?
    From Breitbart:
    A new report reveals the shocking amount of money donated by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to left-wing, pro-socialist organizations in coordination with the Clintons and anti-American billionaire George Soros.
    The extensive report by Capital Research (CR), a conservative watchdog minding non-profit organizations, shows a long history of leftism by the foundation created by the man who founded the Michigan-based breakfast giant, Kellogg’s. It also chronicles how far the foundation has drifted from its founder’s wishes.
    Kellogg’s is the seventh largest philanthropy in the United States with $448,430,564 in assets.
    The Kellogg Foundation was originally founded to provide health care, healthy foods, and services for children in rural areas of the country. Its ultimate goal was to help Americans achieve self-reliance. But since the 1950s, the foundation began seriously straying from those ideals and edging toward funding anti-American socialist policies, ideals, and organizations.


    The founder was a conservative who was against socialism.
    The report notes how what they are doing now with what he left is truly against the donor intent.
    But because he didn’t give specific direction as to how it should be used and just said use it for what “promotes the health, happiness, and well-being of children,” it’s now being used for things he would never have intended.
    It now supports left-wing causes that attack the capitalism that he championed while he was alive.
    The foundation has, for instance, donated millions to the Mexican nationalist organization, La Raza — the group founded to “reclaim” the southwestern United States for Mexico. In 2015, the foundation gave $2,400,000 to the National Council of La Raza for “general operating support.”
    . . . .
    The Kellogg Foundation also has deep ties and associations with George Soros and the Clintons. In December, Breitbart News noted that Kellogg gave $200,000 to George Soros’s far left Open Society Institute.
    Kellogg also gave $930,000 to Black Lives Matter and millions to the Clintons and Soros.
    The Center for American Progress (CAP) — the left-wing organizaiton started by John Podesta has taken in more than $5 million from Kellogg in the last four years.
    They still do donate to the hospitals as Kellogg intended.
    But the next time you are reaching for the Kellogg’s cereal or other product on the shelf, consider to what you may also be contributing…

    A recent article read last week, would have to re-find, stated a judge ruled police officer harmed by BLM could not sue for damages as they are not an organization. Kellogg gave them $930,000.

    The Center for American Progress is full blown globalists agendas, replace Americans with foreigners rhetoric. They have as members numerous mayors, businesses etc - all in on the illegal and legal immigration push. Oh it is so helpful to economy, blah, blah. Not one mention of the costs to American citizens in social services over $135billon a year nor the crimes, jobs taken. They have a very clear agenda and has been actively implemented thru our politicians.

    The Washington Free Beacon has broken several stories and they do excellent research before they publish.
