Who Controls the Democratic Party These Days

We would like to believe our representatives go to D.C. to represent the individual voter but collectivism is watering down the worth of the individual.

There are a number of special interest groups, notably unions, who have significant control over one political party or the other. One you might not have heard about is a cell phone company called CREDO Mobile which also has ties to the White House and some far, far-left groups. They threaten Democrats in Congress who don’t vote the “right way.”

CREDO Mobilie’s SuperPAC is a leftist smear machine that has run an active and vicious campaign against the Tea Party and Republican candidates. Though they claimed to be against Citizens United, they jumped right in with their own PAC.

The organization is a member of the secret Democratic dark money group known as the Democracy Alliance. It is also closely affiliated with Media Matters and MoveOn, leftists who are in the business of demonization everything on the right.

The group recently threatened Democratic members of Congress to go along with the nuclear deal before the deal has even been made public.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that Zack Malitz, the CREDO campaign manager, sent a email to reporters on July 2nd stating that “Democrats in Congress are the only remaining obstacle to finalizing today’s historic deal.” The email was to be kept secret until the deal was announced.

“Every Democrat should go on the record right now in support of the deal, and pledge to defend it from attacks in Congress,” the email insisted.

This is the part of the email that is most concerning: “Progressives will hold accountable those Democrats who vote to help Republicans sabotage the deal and start a war.”

The Progressives are promoting the false notion that it’s either a completely ineffective deal or war as if there were no other options.

The email boasted that their group “fought for years” to stymie congressional pressure against a bad deal in the lead-up to the deal.

They pressured top Democrats including attacking Senator Robert Menendez for “warmongering on Iran,” urging Democrats to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the full Congress last spring, and warning Senator Chuck Schumer that he must not “lead us to war with Iran,” the Beacon reports.

When Senator Schumer voiced concerns about the Iran nuclear deal, organizations like MoveOn and CREDO attacked him. They also attacked any Democrat who supported the Corker-Menendez legislation which gives Congress a voice in the Iran nuclear treaty that Mr. Obama is calling an agreement so he can circumvent Congress. A treaty must be approved with a 67-vote in the Senate.

CREDO Action wrote that: Starting a war with Iran is apparently the top legislative priority for the next leader of the Senate Democratic caucus.

Neither Menendez nor Schumer were looking to go to war. They were concerned about the deal which appears to be the deal of the century for Iran.

CREDO Mobile is a privately held for-profit company with a reported 110,000 mobile customers. It resells cell-phone airtime on the Sprint Network. Half of their profits go to Progressive and other far, far-left political groups/causes.

CREDO Mobile is tied to a who’s who of radical leftist organizations, many of which are funded by billionaire George Soros, photo below.

CREDO Mobile and its parent, Working Assets, have raised more than $65 million for scores of nonprofit organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, the socialist-leaning Democracy Now and Food Democracy Now!, Media Matters for America, Project Vote, the Sierra Club Foundation, and even Color of Change, an advocacy group founded by President Obama’s former “green jobs” czar and communist Van Jones.

CREDO Mobile was founded by radical socialist Drummond Pike, pictured above, founder of the Tides Foundation, and Democratic Party activist Michael Kieschnick, who also has ties to far, far-left left organizations.

Kieschnick, photo above, is one of three co-founders of the Soros-funded Secretary of State Project, which seeks to get Democrats elected to office, and has worked alongside the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, an Alinsky-inspired leftist organization.

Kieschnick was recently invited to visit the White House, where he says he briefed President Obama on CREDO Mobile’s activism, saying the president was impressed, particularly with his work aimed at bringing down George Bush.

He writes for The Beatitudes Society at times, along with HuffPo. The Beatitudes Society is a project of the Soros-funded Tides Center.

Tides is one of the largest funders of U.S. “progressive” groups, including a large number of Soros’ funded projects, such as MoveOn.org. Tides is also closely linked to the Occupy movement.

Kieschnick is a member of the board of directors of Sojourners Magazine, whose founder and CEO, Jim Wallis, is one of Obama’s faith advisers. Sojourners is a left-leaning evangelical group that presses for so-called social and racial justice.

Kieschnick is also a member of Democracy Alliance, a liberal grant-making clearinghouse led by George Soros, serves as senior advisor to the CREDO Super PAC.

Tides is one of the largest funders of U.S. “progressive” groups, including a large number of Soros’ funded projects, such as MoveOn.org. Tides is also closely linked to the Occupy movement.

Tides founder Drummond Pike also co-founded CREDO Action, the activist wing of CREDO Mobile.

Soros funds scores of other groups that are backed by CREDO Mobile, including Human Rights Watch, which, in 2010 received the largest single gift ever donated by Soros, a $100-million-dollar donation.

Arnold has previously worked with left-wing nonprofits such as MoveOn and the Sierra Club. CREDO uses ActBlue, an Internet-based funding aggregator that bills itself as “the online clearinghouse for Democratic action.”

According to the Daily Caller news website, Arnold told supporters on September 8 that CREDO realized “policy did not move voters.” Smearing conservatives is more effective, he said.

Special interest groups controlling a political party over the people is most concerning. When these ever-morphing groups are traced, they always lead back to certain monied organizations and George Soros is almost always tied in somehow. The people don’t control the party, the far-left groups do.

This is the letter they sent out in February, 2013. CREDO might not be the phone company for you.
