No Collusion: Omidyar-Backed NeverTrumpers Hardest Hit

American Greatness
By Julie Kelly
March 4th, 2019

Excerpt:

By all accounts, even from his most devoted propagandists in the news media, Special Counsel Robert Mueller soon is expected to release a report that will devastate Trump antagonists who have been convinced his investigation would result in the president’s removal from office. They are bracing themselves to hear two words from the special counsel that just a few months ago seemed inconceivable: No collusion.

The idea that a nearly two-year-long probe conducted by a team of partisan, Trump-hating prosecutors empowered with an unending supply of public resources and shielded from any legitimate scrutiny will come up empty-handed is causing great angst in the Acela Corridor. The List of Shame—journalists, editors, cable news contributors, Democratic lawmakers, and NeverTrump operatives who’ve foisted this outrageous farce on the American people—is long and ignominious.

One man who in many ways sits at the center of this manufactured storm is Pierre Omidyar, the billionaire founder of eBay. After Trump won the election, an outcome Omidyar tried to prevent by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars against Trump in 2016, the Hawaiian-based mogul ratcheted up his opposition to the president through a network of nonprofits.

Omidyar is a leftist and supports many policies hostile to conservatives, including open borders, abortion, universal voting rights, and climate change. He’s tied to many of the same causespushed by fellow billionaires George Soros and Tom Steyer, avowed left-wing activists. One of his missions has been to stoke the Trump-Russian collusion conspiracy in an effort to derail Trump’s presidency.

“Over the past two years, I have seen alarming and sometimes unprecedented violations of our country’s democratic norms,” wrote Joe Goldman, president of Democracy Fund, one of Omidyar’s well-funded foundations, last summer. “For an organization committed to strengthening democracy on behalf of the American people, this isn’t just disturbing—it’s humbling.”

Goldman disclosed that Democracy Fund has awarded $100 million in grants to dozens of politically oriented groups in just the past four years. (Omidyar’s net worth is about $10 billion.) Several Omidyar-backed outlets have been instrumental in shaping positive news coverage about the Mueller investigation, as well as fueling the notion that Russia somehow poses the direst threat to the future of the republic and that Trump is a willing agent of Vladimir Putin.

Among Omidyar’s shrewdest moves was to co-opt a number of outcast Republicans who were bitter that Trump won the presidential election over their strong objections. This list includes once-influential Republican officials and lawmakers, as well as conservative opinion-makers and consultants. Since Trump’s surprise election, they have aided the Left in attempting to drive Trump from office. Their greatest hope has been Robert Mueller.

Omidyar’s most dependable stooge on that score has been Bill Kristol, the founder of the now-defunct Weekly Standard. Last year, one of Omidyar’s funds gave $600,000 to an outlet Kristol created to pimp for the Mueller probe. That group, Defending Democracy Together, aired several television ads to tout Mueller’s alleged sterling reputation and to urge lawmakers to protect the special counsel from Trump. (The Bulwark, Kristol’s latest media venture, is a project of Defending Democracy Together’s nonprofit. Charles Sykes, The Bulwark’s editor, sits on the advisory committee for Omidyar’s Democracy Fund.)

And the thing is, only the complete morons expected anything else. Everybody knew two years ago this whole thing was a farce. Well, that is, everybody with properly-functioning brain cells who was paying proper, honest, objective attention to reality.

The Bill Kristol gang is a great part of the reason Conservatives were led into the wilderness for so long. They are an integral part of the same circles of the establishment mob inside the beltway. They are acting from fear and disdain for raw boned true Conservatives. Their fear is justified.

Omidyar
Soros
Steyer

Add:

Buffett
Gates
Mark Cuban
Kevin Johnson (though he's on the outs)


These multi-billionaires use their wealth to buy elections and public opinion. How are they any different than the "Russian oligarchs" that Trump allegedly but has never met? These elitists have a common goal.

They got theirs. They aim to keep it. One way to do that is to shut you out. "Russian collusion" is a smokescreen for their power grab.
