The Enemies of Liberty Gather

George Soros headed the secretive leftist event aimed at fundraising and game planning.

Over the weekend, wealthy leftists gathered for a secretive conference at the posh La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California. The event was titled “Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future.” The high-dollar fundraising event had donors pledge to give at least $200,000 to approved leftist groups, all for the purpose of opposing Liberty at every turn. Not surprisingly, billionaire George Soros was headlined as one of the featured speakers. Recall that just last month Soros transferred $18 billon — or “the bulk of his wealth” — into his leftist activist arm, and it’s not for charitable purposes.

Other high-profile speakers included several politicians either in person or via video — Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who has been rumored to be preparing for a run for the White House in 2020, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Pennsylvania Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf, Virginia Democrat Governor-elect Ralph Northam, Rep. Ray Lujan (D-MN) and even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the “special guests” list also included CNN commentator Van Jones as well as failed politician and feminist activist Sandra Fluke. David Brock, who heads the leftist organization Media Matters (financed in part by Soros), was seen in attendance as was Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. In other words, it was a who’s who list of leftists representing the greatest threat to Liberty.

Interestingly, the Free Beacon noted, “Guests are instructed not to share members’ names with the press and not to post to any social media sites, to contact Democracy Alliance if ‘the media or a blogger’ contacts them, and to ‘refrain from leaving sensitive materials out where others may find them.’” Clearly, someone didn’t follow instructions, but why the secrecy?
