George Soros Funds Wuhan Virus Attack Ads Against President Donald Trump

Published

on

The Free Beacon reports that the Democratic Party’s premiere PAC will start attacking President Donald Trump over the Wuhan virus in four battleground states. They will be relying on the financial war chest of billionaire oligarch George Soros.

Priorities USA Action plans on spending $6 million this week on ads blasting Trump for his approach to the Wuhan virus pandemic. The ads will be played in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The PAC received a hefty $3 million in funds from Soros’s Democracy PAC on February 21, according to new filing reports. Soros’s massive monetary injection makes up 77 percent of the $3.9 million the PAC reported collected in last month.

Big Democratic donors have dropped big money into battleground states, specifically in the Midwest, for anti-Trump programs with the aim of appealing to the president’s voter base. CNN reported on Monday, March 23, 2020 on Priorities USA’s new ads, which are part of a larger plan by Democrat big wigs and activist groups to pour large amounts of funds into the region..

Priorities USA has revealed it plans to spend north of $150 million against Trump in states like Michigan and Wisconsin. The PAC has raised $27 million since January 2019. Donald Sussman, a billionaire hedge fund manager, is the PAC’s largest donor. Sussman has donated $8 million to the group in this election cycle. As of now, Soros is the group’s second-largest donor at $5 million.

PACRONYM, a super PAC linked to the nonprofit ACRONYM, which was in charge of the flawed Iowa app that gained notoriety during the Iowa caucuses, is carrying out a similar campaign.

PACRONYM announced on March 17, 2020 that it will spend $5 million on digital advertising against Trump’s approach to the Wuhan virus. Tara McGowan, ACRONYM’s founder, said it’s crucial that Democratic groups push anti-Trump narratives while Democratic presidential contenders maintain a positive outlook during the pandemic. Biden, however, criticized Trump on Monday over what he described a “failure of planning and preparation” for the pandemic.

“This is a public health issue and a national security issue, but it’s also a public policy issue and thus a political one,” McGowan said to the Washington Post.

PACRONYM received $250,000 from Soros’s Democracy PAC and $1 million from Sussman late in 2019. Hollywood director Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw pitched in $1 million.

Additionally, leftist activist David Brock’s American Bridge PAC has attacked Trump’s Wuhan virus response. American Bridge has focused its attention on Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

“Our job is to hold Donald Trump accountable, and we have no plans to let up, particularly with a focus on economic issues as we’ve done to date,” Bradley Beychok, the president of American Bridge, stated. “But as this crisis unfolds and the country experiences the consequences of his incompetence, we’re not going to give him a pass for bungling the government’s response to this pandemic.”

American Bridge aims to spend $50 million to “weaken” Trump in battleground states in the Midwest. “We’re now set to leverage our expertise to launch the largest persuasion media effort we’ve ever undertaken with the goal of making Trump a one-term president,” Beychok stated last year. “Donald Trump turned his back on the voters who gave him a lifeline in 2016. We plan to cut it.”

Brock has close connections to the Democracy Alliance, a roundtable group of millionaire and billionaire donors that Soros helped found. According to the group’s internal documents, $275 million in spending is planned for the 2020 cycle.

Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.

If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
