Over 1,000 executives and employees from Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Apple made financial contributions to ActBlue, a pro-Democrat super PAC that has raised over $1.5 billion since President Donald Trump entered the political scene in 2015.
An examination of ActBlue’s fundraising gathered by the Federal Elections Commission and compiled by watchdog website Campaign Money reveals a large influx of cash poured in from top executives, vice presidents, managers, and rank and file employees at major tech companies now leading the crusade against free speech.
A detailed list of donors to ActBlue for the 2015-2016 reporting period was provided to Big League Politics by independent journalist Tom Pappert. It includes:
- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg
- Twitter co-founder Evan Williams
- Google senior executives Urs Holzle, Vinton Cerf, and Jennifer Fitzpatrick
- Apple senior executives Angela Ahrendts and Lisa Jackson
In total, nearly 600 names from Google, 271 from Apple, 108 from Facebook, and 34 from Twitter appear on the donation rolls for ActBlue in 2015-2016 alone.
The organization raised over $1.5 billion in the last three years and recently boasted cracking $1 billion in this campaign cycle alone.
“The fundraising milestone, shared first with USA TODAY, offers a sign that the liberal activism fueled by President Donald Trump’s election isn’t slowing down,” USA Today reported on August 5.
As Big Tech works to silence a growing list of conservatives, libertarians, Christians, and supporters of President Trump, mounting pushback has prompted Silicon Valley spokespeople to deny any political motivation behind their censorship strategy – but many aren’t buying it.
President Trump fired a warning shot across the bow on Tuesday, hinting at plans to move against the tech monopolies and investigate possible collusion between mainstream media and Big Tech.
“Google search results for ‘Trump News’ shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media,” Trump tweeted. “In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stores & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?”
In a follow up tweet, the president continued, “96% of results on ‘Trump News’ are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!”

President Trump continued on the subject while speaking to reporters at the White House, warning that the Big Tech companies are “treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful.”

President Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, also told journalists the Trump administration is “taking a look at” the possibility of regulating Google and other Big Tech companies.

While recent events led Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to admit the company leans left politically, Facebook and other companies maintain that they are a public forum for all ideas.
Most recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress that he does not know the political leanings of his employees, and that Facebook strives to be a “platform for all ideas.”
It would appear from this research that while Big Tech companies pride themselves on diversifying their companies in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, and other physical characteristics – as evidenced by Google’s Global Head of Diversity Staffing appearing on the list of ActBlue donors – they have thus far not been able to ensure the same degree of intellectual diversity in their employees.
Amy Coney Barrett Confirmed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
She succeeds Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on Monday, solidifying a conservative majority on the nation’s highest court.
Barrett succeeds progressive Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a progressive who had served on the Supreme Court since 1993.
Watch the Senate confirmation proceedings here.
After a lengthy obstructionist attempt to delay the confirmation, Democrats proved unable to stop a floor vote on Barrett’s confirmation on Monday night. Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer attempted a last minute filibuster in a race against time- claiming the eventual confirmation of Barrett represented “one of the darkest days in the history of the Senate,” but Mitch McConnell ultimately arranged a vote.

Josh Hawley had earlier hailed the confirmation of a justice with a strong pro-life track record.

The vote to confirm Barrett as a SCOTUS Justice passed by a count of 52-48, with Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski voting in favor of Barrett’s confirmation. Maine’s Susan Collins was the only Republican senator to vote against Barrett’s confirmation, refusing to budge on her stance that the next President should appoint Ginsburg’s replacement.
Judge Barrett is expected to be sworn in as an Associate Justice by Justice Clarence Thomas at the White House on Monday night.
