Billionaire Who Bankrolled Faulty App in Iowa Democrat Caucus Also Funded Sabotage Ops in 2017 Alabama Senate Race

This Silicon Valley technocrat is notorious for funding shady political operations.

Big League Politics has reported about Acronym, the political organization that is behind Shadow Inc., the tech firm that made the faulty app that caused massive delays in reporting the Democrat results of the Iowa caucus.

Acronym is closely tied to South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the failed campaign of Hillary Clinton, and it is funded by Silicon Valley oligarch Reid Hoffman. Hoffman has a history of funding shady social media operations, which makes it incomprehensible that a firm funded by him would be tasked with securing electoral integrity for the all-important Iowa caucus.

Hoffman, who founded the popular networking portal LinkedIn, has frequently funded campaigns to manipulate voters using technology. As the Democrats accuse the Russians of running disinfo ops to influence elections, one of their richest backers actually does it, gets caught doing it, receives with no repercussions, and is given an opportunity to do it yet again. Hoffman’s top henchman is Dmitri Mehlhorn, who used to promote privatization of schools before he joined the dark side.

Hoffman has also funded and promoted the political ambitions of Acronym CEO Tara McGowan, who is married to a Buttigieg campaign senior advisor.

She was once called “a weapon of a woman whose innovative tactics make her critically important to the Democratic Party,” but that weapon seemingly blew up in their faces in Iowa, and she is now under incredible scrutiny for her connections.

Before the Iowa caucus, Hoffman’s most infamous political dirty trick was his funding of Project Birmingham. This project used social media to spread disinformation on social media to damage the campaign of U.S. senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, who was hammered with false accusations that ended up costing him the seat in the Dec. 2017 special election.

The Washington Post reported Hoffman’s involvement in Project Birmingham in Jan. 2019 long after the damage was done:

Project Birmingham got its funding from Internet billionaire Reid Hoffman, who emerged as a leading underwriter of Democratic causes after the 2016 election … Hoffman gave $750,000 to a progressive technology start-up called American Engagement Technologies — founded by Mikey Dickerson, a former Obama administration official … This person said Dickerson used $100,000 of that to hire New Knowledge, a Texas-based social media research firm, to work in Alabama in support of Jones during the special election in December 2017.

The Project Birmingham campaign enlisted thousands of bots to follow Judge Moore on social media in order to capitalize on hysteria about the Russians and tie it to Moore’s campaign. It was done to “radicalize Democrats, suppress unpersuadable Republicans (“hard Rs”) and faction moderate Republicans by advocating for write-in candidates,” according to the Project Birmingham Debrief that outlined the Hoffman-backed black op.

“This fraud and interference was evident during the 2017 U.S. senate election when tens of thousands of Russian bots were programmed to follow the Republican candidate on Twitter to make it appear as if his campaign was being backed by the Russians,” Alabama Republican State Rep. Andrew Sorrell said to Big League Politics about Project Birmingham.

Hoffman was forced to accept his culpability in the electoral interference operation in Dec. 2018 and apologize for his organization’s devious acts.

“I find the tactics that have been recently reported highly disturbing. For that reason, I am embarrassed by my failure to track AET – the organization I did support – more diligently as it made its own decisions to perhaps fund projects that I would reject,” he said.

Hoffman’s shenanigans were unfortunately successful in Alabama in 2017, and they may have been successful in Iowa as well if it ends up that turning the caucus into a grueling nightmare was the plan all along.

Biden Impresses U.S. Workers with ‘Buy America’ Push After Kushner Blocked Trump’s Economic Nationalist Order

Kushner is sabotaging Trump’s re-election chances.

Published

Trump backers are reportedly enraged as former vice president Joe Biden has unveiled his “Buy America” push, scoring points with the working class base that President Trump desperately needs to win re-election.

Biden proposed a plan this week that would spend $700 billion to revitalize the American economy and attempt to undo the tremendous damage done by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This will be the largest mobilization of public investments in procurement, infrastructure and (research and development) since World War II,” Biden senior adviser Jake Sullivan said to the Associated Press to talk up the proposal.

Biden wants the government to spend an additional $400 billion to buy U.S.-based goods and services over the course of four years. His plan would spend another $300 million on research and development related to technology. He is also intending to revise current “Buy American” laws to end loopholes that help foreign firms.

“What’s going on here, we need to build back, not just to where we were but build back better than we’ve ever been,” Biden said to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers on Wednesday. “We’re going to take a monumental step forward for the prosperity, power, safety and dignity of all American workers.”

While Biden’s plan may be fluff, he has outflanked President Trump on the “Buy American” issue. Trump has reportedly had an “Economic Nationalism” executive order ready to be signed for months, but it has been stalled at the behest of globalists in his administration, namely his son-in-law Jared Kushner, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

It was widely reported back in March that White House trade advisor Peter Navarro had the executive order ready for the President to sign, but it was ultimately shelved because of resistance from within the administration.

Big Pharma also sent a letter to the administration lobbying against the America First order. They claimed the measure would “not only overestimate the potential feasibility and underestimate the time and effort it would take to make such changes, but also misunderstand that a diverse pharmaceutical supply chain is precisely what enables the industry to respond quickly and make adjustments in its supply chain sourcing during natural emergencies and global public health crises.”

Big League Politics has reported for years about how Kushner’s influence as senior advisor has undermined President Trump’s mandate:

CNN commentator Van Jones, who was once run from the Obama administration due to his communist ties, has been revealed as the man largely responsible for crafting President Donald Trump’s police reform executive order.

Jones is under heavy fire from left-wing media outlets for being willing to work with the Trump administration. The Daily Beast published an article bashing Jones for helping to “secretly craft the weak Trump police reform he praised on TV.”

They reported: “Jones and California human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, who runs #cut50, a prison-reform group that Jones also founded, actively participated with law enforcement officials and White House staffers to help fashion the order and guide the politics of the discussion to what they considered “the sweet spot” between law enforcement and “the reasonable middle” and “the reasonable left.”’

Jones has become a major influence on the Trump administration because of Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner. Kushner is a huge admirer of Jones, and has rolled out the red carpet for the communist to determine law enforcement policy for the White House.

“He was someone I’d seen on television, so I was deeply skeptical,” Kushner said to The Daily Beast. “But I said I’d be happy to speak to him, and we had a good chat. And then we just started working together. And what I saw, with him, was that he had a lot of courage, when other people play politics.”

“I find that in politics, people get in uncomfortable situations, and that’s when you get to see what a person’s character really is,” Kushner added. “And in a tough situation Van has shown me that he’s got true character. He’s focused on the right things.”

Kushner has pushed for Trump to abandon being the law-and-order President so he could let criminals out of jail instead to placate the Left. Placating the Left has not worked for the administration, as riots now lay waste to cities all over the country.

Kushner’s blundering could ultimately cost President Trump his re-election in November, as Biden leads on the issue of putting American workers first.
