GoFundDems: The Left's New Money-Laundering Machine

by Rush Limbaugh in the Limbaugh Letter, November 2018

"I'm aware there's been several GoFundMe sites ... That have raised money, primarily for our security detail. So, I'm not even quite sure how to collect that money or -- and how to distribute it yet. I haven't been able to focus on that." -- Christine Blasey Ford, Senate Judiciary Committee testimoney, The Washington Post, 9/27/18

Making money has long been a legal problem for the left. So many payoffs to distribute, so little time. Not to mention all the inconvenient banking reporting regulations and record-keeping rules. It's been a real pain in the neck to move the vast sums needed to keep the left's troops supplied.

Enter mankind's most efficient cash-transport in history: the internet. And welcome to the new trend of lefty activists and groups raising enormous amounts of money via crowdfunding websites. Ain't technology grand.

We've just watched a series of Resistance members and useful tools of the left "get paid" on GoFundMe. In addition to Christine Blasey Ford, fired FBI agents, involved in the Russia hoax were showered with hundreds of thousands of dollars within days. A current Crowdpac campaign to defeat Susan Collins in 2020 by funding her "Future Opponent" is approaching $4 million.

The plethora of anti-GOP crowdfunding campaign on sites such as GoFundMe, Crowdpac, and Kickstarter give the impression that they are organic, springing from individual liberty voters all over the U.S. who are so fed up with Republicans, they want to deluge their teams with dollars. Rescue funds from caring progressives.

Yes, there is some of that. But many operators have deep roots in Democrat dark money and politics. Of the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for Blasey Ford, for instance, much of it goes to left-wing activist Debra Katz, who once defended Bill Clinton and Al Franken. Another far-left group that has sponsored dozens of crowdfunding campaigns is the Center for Popular Democracy [CPD], whose sister CPD Fund rakes in millions from George Soros every year.

Once you start looking into the left's money flow, you find the same names, over and over and over. Let me give you a small peek into this incestuous world. Probably the most prolific left-wing fundraiser on crowdfunding sites is CPD's Ady Barkan, a longtime radical activist. Barkan is everywhere. He's featured in one CPD Crowdpac campaign called "We need YOU to Be a Hero". The mission: "Send Ady Barkan to Illinois" to organize for Democrats. Coincidentally, one of the $1,000 donors happened to be Dan Kovats, executive director of the Illinois Democrat[ic] County Chairs' Association. Cozy little recirculation system they've got there.

In its "Help Us Fund Our Los Angeles Rally!" GoFundMe campaign, CPD raised over $25,000 to hold a June 30 rally featuring Barkan and Ana Maria Archila, the woman who accosted Jeff Flake in the infamous elevator incident. (Months ago, Barkan also accosted Flake, at the airport, about health care.) Viola, on August 2, USA Today ran a puff piece about Ady Barkan, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2017, spending $100,000 -- ostensibly of his own money -- to support lefty Danny O'Connor in a special election in Ohio. The headline: "Father Dying of ALS Buys $100K Ad to Help Democrat in Ohio Midterm." Talk about a circle, er, dance.

What exactly is going on here? Money-laundering? Covering up where money's being directed? Providing slush funds to support shady campaign activities? Hiding the fact that only a few operatives move the levers, and that supposedly organic grasroots activity is really smoke and mirrors? We can be sure of one thing: it's all about funding the Democrat Resistance:

Leftist Tool

Swamp Payout

NoFundYou, Conservatives

Haven for Crooks

Shady Soros Business

Don't get me wrong. Cloud crowdfunding is a great innovation, an efficient outlet for generosity and all kinds of causes. But like all else that is good, it also attracts the corrupt. The left is exploiting a new way to instantly move payoff money or to supply the shock troops. Don't forget, my friends, the best disinfectant is sunlight.
