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.
BREAKING: Roger Stone is a Free Man, President Trump Commutes Sentence
The story is developing.
On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.
Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14 where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.
Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.
For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.
When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”
Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”
The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”
Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
