Center for American Progress
Liberal billionaire and 2020 Democratic candidate Tom Steyer stepped down from a prominent left-wing think tank last month due to his presidential bid, according to CNBC. Steyer was deeply involved with Center for American Progress for at least 9 years. CNBC reported Steyer was director of CAP’s board since 2010 before resigning July 9. Steyer had been distancing himself from “outside entities that could be seen as giving his campaign an advantage,” said CNBC.
The liberal media outlet The Intercept reported that its scrutiny of the liberal Center for American Progress recently led to the firing of two CAP employees “suspected” of leaking emails. Leaked emails showed concern among some staff about United Arab Emirates’ influence at the liberal group.
CAP is one of the most well-known liberal groups in Washington, D.C. and is supported by a host of prominent left-wing names including George Soros and Tom Steyer. Soros gave more than $12 million to CAP between 2005 and 2014 and more since.
Each time an end-of-the-world prophecy is delivered -- whether by a self-deluded preacher, a group of politicians or scientists -- we are told that we must believe. Never mind how many of their prophecies have been wrong in the past, this time they mean it. The latest prophecy of doom and planetary extinction comes from a government report authored by people appointed during the Obama administration. This report, and others before it, concluded that Earth is warming, humans are responsible and that we have only 10 years to fix it.
If you forget that Harvey Weinstein sexual harassed women, he’s actually a pretty decent guy, and if you ignore enough facts, you’ll believe liberals always put morals above politics … unlike those decadent conservatives.
In mid-May, the Associated Press's Ken Thomas devoted over 800 words to the Center for American Progress's "Ideas Conference." Given that level of recognition, one might think that the AP and Thomas might have covered a blatantly false tweet the think tank published Monday about potential Donald Trump Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett by now. Nope.
Lipton Tea has made hefty contributions to Planned Parenthood, the National Urban League, and the Center for American Progress – all of which lobby heavily for leftist agendas. According to a weekly report from 2ndVote, Lipton has a history for donating to numerous exclusively liberal lobbies and organizations.
The left’s view of the media is riddled with hypocrisy, and Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden is a perfect example. “The press is psychotic!!!” She wrote in an email to Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta in July 2015, “But I will tweet now w/o actually saying they are psychotic.”
As of Wednesday morning, the Big Three networks' morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the Tuesday revelation that the Clinton campaign's communications director — along with a close associate of the campaign's chairman, John Podesta — bashed Catholicism and evangelical Christianity in an e-mail conversation in 2011. The latter, John Halpin of the left-wing Center for American Progress, denounced the "severely backwards gender relations" inside the Catholic Church. The former, Jennifer Palmieri, replied with a negative remark about evangelicals.
A liberal group funded by billionaire George Soros is accusing conservatives and the “religious right” of fear-mongering and slandering Islam. According to the Center for American Progress, the right has been coordinating to push “Sharia hysteria” which “mischaracterizes Sharia as a totalitarian ideology of hate and triumphalism committed to replacing the U.S. Constitution with a radical Islamic caliphate that will subordinate and punish all non-Muslim adherents.”
The Grammy Awards were not just a stage for musicians' egos in 2015, but a platform for promoting a cause backed by President Barack Obama and a Soros-funded organization.
CBS gave 1 minute, 12 seconds at the music awards to play a pre-recorded video with President Barack Obama, during which he promoted the "It's On Us" campaign against sexual violence.
Ed Schultz one-upped colleague Chuck Todd on his MSNBC program on Wednesday. Hours after Todd likened President Obama's policy announcement on Cuba to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Schultz compared the Democrat's address to a famous 1987 speech given at the Wall by his predecessor, Ronald Reagan: "Isn't this Barack Obama's 'tear down this wall, Mr. Castro' – that kind of a moment? I mean, if change can take place with the Soviet Union, why can't it take place with the Cuban people here?"
You say you want a revolution? Former NAACP president Benjamin Jealous just analogized the fear for their lives that black youth feel about police to the fear the colonists felt toward the "Redcoats"—British soldiers during the time of the American Revolution.
Jealous, now with the leftist Center for American Progress, made his inflammatory remark to Ronan Farrow on the latter's MSNBC show today. Rather than challenging Jealous, Farrow thanked him for his "impassioned take." Has it come to this? A significant civil rights leader analogizes race relations in the United States to the revolution that led to the creation of our country, and all an MSNBC host can do is thank him for it?
