Lincoln Project Out to Destroy Republicans—Where is the Outrage

A few months ago complaints were filed to get the California Republican party to throw out delegates who were supporting the defeat of President Trump and seven U.S. Senators.  This is an organization finance by Democrats, using Republicans to front for them.  Yet, since July when the complaints were filed, not a word from the California Republican Party.  The Chair has been stonewalling the issue—not even a motion to censure those delegates who belong to the Pro-Biden Caucus in the CRP.

“If the PAC’s actions appear indistinguishable from those of a run-of-the-mill Democratic political organization, it might be because the Lincoln Project is funded by several run-of-the-mill Democratic political organizations.

Senate Majority PAC, whose mission is to elect Democrats to the Senate, gave $1.9 million to the Lincoln Project. Democratic-aligned dark money groups also pitched in. Majority Forward PAC, which was founded by Democratic lawyer Marc Elias and shares an address with Senate Majority PAC, contributed $1.3 million. The Sixteen Thirty Fund, which Politico recently described as “one of the left’s biggest financial hubs,” donated $300,000. Fair Share Action gave at least $100,000.”

Why are activists re-registering as NPP?  Because they no longer trust a Party that has acted as a sanctuary for Democrats operatives.  This is really going to hurt in 2022—as more folks leave the State or leave the Party.

Lincoln Project Teams Up With Billionaires, Left-Wing Activists to Punish GOP, Elect More Democrats

Andrew Stiles – Washington Free Beacon, 1/12/21 

The Lincoln Project, a left-wing super PAC founded by minor internet celebrities, wants to remind its rich liberal donors that Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 election doesn’t mean they should stop giving money to the Lincoln Project.

Last year, the super PAC spent almost $12 million in an effort to unseat seven incumbent GOP senators, going 0 for 7 in the process. When Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) accurately described the Lincoln Project as a “scam” siphoning money away from people “who deserve it,” the gang of former Republican operatives tried to win her over by bragging about how rich they are and how much they “admire” women who work in restaurants.

“I would like to officially reach out to @AOC on behalf of the @ProjectLincoln in defense of democracy,” wrote PAC cofounder Steve Schmidt, the ex-GOP strategist who persuaded John McCain to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate. “We disagree on many issues and that is ok in our view. Btw, we don’t look down on waitresses. We admire them. We are all the types of guys who always tip at 50% or more.”

The Lincoln Project’s latest revenue-generating venture involves publicly shaming and “destabilizing” corporations that donate money to Republicans. The group has joined forces with Judd Legum, founder of the now-defunct left-wing activist blog Think Progress, by blatantly stealing his idea. The Lincoln Project announced its campaign of corporate shaming several days after Legum started hounding corporate PR shops and posting their responses on his website.

If the PAC’s actions appear indistinguishable from those of a run-of-the-mill Democratic political organization, it might be because the Lincoln Project is funded by several run-of-the-mill Democratic political organizations.

Senate Majority PAC, whose mission is to elect Democrats to the Senate, gave $1.9 million to the Lincoln Project. Democratic-aligned dark money groups also pitched in. Majority Forward PAC, which was founded by Democratic lawyer Marc Elias and shares an address with Senate Majority PAC, contributed $1.3 million. The Sixteen Thirty Fund, which Politico recently described as “one of the left’s biggest financial hubs,” donated $300,000. Fair Share Action gave at least $100,000.

Like most run-of-the-mill Democratic political organizations, the Lincoln Project receives a large percentage of its funding from liberal billionaires, including David Geffen, Hyatt heiress Jennifer Pritzker, Groupon founder Eric Lefkofsky, and hedge-fund titan Stephen Mandel. Walmart heiress Christy Walton is also a donor, as is Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Hollywood executive whose net worth is a mere $900 million.

Naturally, Hollywood celebs and private-equity executives are also a key part of the Lincoln Project’s donor base. Directors Jay Roach and Rob Reiner have pitched in, while John Connaughton, the global head of Bain Capital’s private-equity division, is a top donor.

“We are not a Democratic organization,” Lincoln Project cofounder Reed Galen said in December. “We are a pro-democracy organization.”

In related news: Dick Hed, an individual of unknown occupation residing in Tulsa, Okla., has donated $20,000 to the Lincoln Project, according to federal election records.

    And you wonder why so many conservatives are leaving Kalifornia? There is no loyalty, or Party to support. They elect Party “personalities” to run the Republicans; instead of following principals, laws, morals, ethics… Republicans stab your fellow Republicans in the back, just like the Democrats do to you. Who needs friends?
