Democratic donors have built a formidable dark money network to obscure the source of more than $600 million funneled to liberal groups and initiatives last year, tax forms show.
The massive cash flow came from Arabella Advisors, a D.C.-based organization that says it provides "strategic guidance for effective philanthropy." In reality, the group does far more, funneling hundreds of millions of dollars in anonymous donations to some of the most influential advocacy groups on the left.
Entities traced back to Arabella have invested more than $1 billion powering liberal activist and interest groups since President Donald Trump took office. The establishment of the complex network of nonprofits marks the Democrats' adoption of a once-derided Republican strategy: building a massive funding network that provides donors anonymity....
Exactly the same passages fit liberals as well as conservatives, Timothy âđ
I seem to mention I didn't agree with everything that the author, who I assume is a Millennial said. q.v., https://tinyurl.com/r2zyrpz (False Idol â Why the Christian Right Worships Donald Trump) He seems to accept Petes Buttigieg a homosexual, as a Christian, that is just as much an error considering as a Catholic who says he's a Christian--both are oxymorons
But, many mainline Christians learn their lessons early in the twentieth century not to mess into politics.
John MacArthur wrote: Also, many present-day Christian activists seem to be unaware of how much their methodology parallels that of liberal Christians at the turn of the twentieth century. Like those misguided idealists, contemporary evangelicals became enamored of temporal issues at the expense of eternal values. Evangelical activists, in essence, are simply preaching a politically conservative version of the old social gospel, emphasizing social and cultural concerns above spiritual ones...

Dr. Tim; Jim & His Worldview & others, who hold too, what he constantly tries to promote on here. Is liken to Jello, it splatters everywhere, as his worldview is impossible to live in, with any consistency.
Puts one right back to sure-pressing Truth in acts of unrighteousness Roms 1:18-32!
May the Lord allow others to see, to understand & experience for their own self, why His people, His sheep. Weep over their own unrighteousness, as He is utterly Holy. Making His grace to be utterly amazing that, He extends mercies to others, who are outside of Christ, are in a hostile relationship with their only True & living Creator amen!
Jim, just for the sake of argument, letâs assume that Christians should not try to force the kingdom on others. Without resorting to quotes from other people, can you present a cogent defense of liberals forcing their beliefs on others? Or of the ungodly forcing their ungodliness on the rest of society?
1 Cor 1:17-18 For Christ sent me nât to baptize, but to preach the Gospel, & nât with the wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who perish; but unto us who are saved, itâs the power of God.
Your Precious Hillary; PS 130:3 If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord , who shall stand?
Jim!; Job 9:20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me; if I say, âI am perfect,â it shall also prove me perverse.
If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me; if I say, âI am perfect,â it shall also prove me perverse.
Barnes Commentary wrote: John 18 âVerse 36.Â My kingdom, &c. The charge on which Jesus was arraigned was that of laying claim to the office of a king. He here substantially admits that heÂ didÂ claim to be a king, but not in the sense in which the Jews understood it.Â TheyÂ charged him with attempting to set up anÂ earthlyÂ kingdom, and of exciting sedition against Caesar. In reply to this, Jesus says thatÂ his kingdom is not of this world--that is, it is not of the same nature as earthly kingdoms. It was not originated for the same purpose, or conducted on the same plan. He immediately adds a circumstance in which they differ. The kingdoms of the world are defended by arms; they maintain armies and engage in wars. If the kingdom of Jesus had been of thisÂ kind, he would have excited the multitudes that followed him to prepare for battle. He would have armed the hosts that attended him to Jerusalem. He would not have been alone and unarmed in the garden of Gethsemane. But though heÂ wasÂ a king, yet his dominion was over the heart, subduing evil passions and corrupt desires, and bringing the soul to the love of peace and unity.Â

Jim, why would you quote someone who would say something as insane as "she was voting for Hillary Clinton because she was "pro-life" not just "pro-birth?" Hillary (your "paragon of virtue") has been synonymous with "death" for nearly 30 years now both of the born and unborn. You seem to have a moral blind spot if see anything of virtue in Ms. Clinton. I don't mean to upset you by saying this. But I think you have to reevaluate how you came to that conclusion.
Adriel, I hardly consider Hillary a paragon of virtue, but compared to Mr. Trump---she is The author of he following article, gets many things right and a few things wrong. His liking for liberals such as Rob Bell means he's going down some bad paths.

These faith leaders helped me see that no one political party had a monopoly on God; that Jesus himself was revolutionary, upsetting hierarchies wherever he went; and that a form of Christianity that could be co-opted by a political agenda was suspect at its core. âI find the term âChristian rightâ highly objectionable because I donât think thereâs anything Christian about it, frankly,â says religion historian Balmer. âWhat is Christian about whatâs happening at the border right now?

I wonder why Jim has dug out this obscure article reflecting on the Republican sins???
You don't think that Jim is on the very left of the "Independent" party do you???
Anyway here is another excerpt from the Jim-Link.... "The Democrats have often times been more creative in dodging disclosure than Republicans,â says Brendan Fischer from the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan watchdog in Washington, DC. âGroups like Majority Forward, Highway 31, and others would be unlikely to push the legal envelope in this way if HR 1 were to help create a functioning FEC and laws that would prevent these disclosure dodges.â
Keep up the good work Jim. đ Hillary will be proud of you.
"Everybody does it" is the typical liberal response when they are caught doing dirt. But when it comes to funding ultra left activists and causes I quote a line from the title song of Bond movie: "Nobody does it better, baby you're the best!" DNC supporters has no equal.
I love their euphemism: "strategic guidance for effective philanthropy." Me, I call it "money laundering."
Nihal Krishan wrote: .... "Unfortunately, Democrats and Republicans alike have long been beholden to big money in politics, blocking meaningful reform and benefitting from weak enforcement by the FEC,â says Paul S. Ryan from Common Cause, a nonprofit government watchdog group. But he also highlighted that McConnellâs attempts to paint HR 1 as a Democratic power grab is stretching the truth. âSen. McConnellâs not fooling anyone with his self-serving rhetoric. America knows heâs only protecting his fat-cat friends.â
