George Soros Spending Millions To Defeat Brett Kavanaugh

There have been predictions that this will be the most expensive Supreme Court battle ever; it looks like that may well be the case.

According to LifeNews, the abortion-loving billionaire George Soros will be spending millions in the fight to keep President Trump’s nominee from being confirmed to the highest court in the land.

“A new political advocacy group that vowed to put $5 million behind an effort to stop Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court has significant ties to the liberal financier George Soros,” reports LifeNews. “The group, Demand Justice (DJ), is organized and financed by a 501(c)(4) called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, which collected some $2.2 million in contributions from the Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), one of Soros’ primary donation vehicles, between 2012 and 2016.”

The Sixteen Thirty Fund comes from only a handful of donors, with financial statements from 2014 showing that as few as three contributors accounted for 70% of its fundraising: $11.5 million. The 2016 disclosure forms show that fewer than five donors gave $13.3 million to the Sixteen Thirty Fund — 63% of the total donations.

Since one of those mega-donors is the George Soros-owned Open Society Policy Center (OSPC), the billionaire’s hand in the quest to block Judge Kavanaugh cannot be understated. In fact, the OSPC and the Open Society Foundation (OSF) are nearly identical.

The group opposing Kavanaugh, Demand Justice, began in the spring of this year as a counterpoint to conservative groups pushing judicial confirmations. Its executive director Brian Fallon told The New York Times that DJ hopes to “sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda.”

Many of the Demand Justice staff are alumnae of the Obama administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
