BIG MONEY IN DARK SHADOWS (ARABELLA)
Capital Research Center ^ | Recent | Hayden R. Ludwig

Posted on 09/04/2019 5:42:47 PM PDT by Hostage

Executive Summary

The political Left often criticizes—and the mainstream media frequently report on—the network of center-right nonprofits funded by billionaire entrepreneurs Charles and David Koch. But few politicos know of a left-wing leviathan in Washington, D.C., with a reach rivaling that of the Koch network.

This study by the Capital Research Center documents a shadowy web into which nearly $600 million flowed in 2017, the most recent year for which data are available. Operating under the aegis of “philanthropy,” this network is housed in and staffed by a for-profit, privately held consultancy called Arabella Advisors, LLC. Arabella manages four nonprofit entities — the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund — each of which shares an address and interlocking officers with Arabella.

Very useful reference that names names and funds behind sudden "Pop-Up Grassroots Groups", all having the same agenda.

This ties the invisible hands together nicely and names culprits. I like names and organizational identifiers. I guess that's doxxing them but we're all doxxed these days whether we know it or not.

Looks like Kessler's network is used to funnel union money: National Democratic Institute: Eric Kessler Board Member. . Donor Organizations: American Federation of Teachers (AFT) (Labor Union); Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) (Labor Union)

LIUNA: My old mob case. They gave the Clintons and Democrat Part $3 million dollars for various causes/uses and got $30 MILLION in return for LIUNA training grants/projects.

It is all detailed in Byron York’s great piece in “The American Spectator”, April 1997, “Let’s Be Friends: A Mob-Controlled Union Delivers the Goods for Bill”.

This is one of the mob unions Donald Trump had to deal with during his construction projects in NYC. I think he threatened them with the wrath of God if they didn’t leave him alone.
