Fox News Reports on the Soros Network Paying Protesters at Palestinian Tent Cities; Rep. Comer Vows Congress Will "Follow the Money" and Expose the Dark Money Networks

Ed Morrissey wrote about a new book exposing the Dark Money umbrella group Arabella Associates, which raised $2.4 billion in a slush-fund for leftwing causes and general Democrat propaganda.

In 2020 alone.

This is why the media no longer writes stories hysterically decrying how "dark money" is subverting our politics -- they approve of how dark money is subverting our politics, now that they're the main subverters.

It sounds like an organization from a James Bond film, like SPECTRE or SMERSH. Unlike Ian Fleming's creations, Arabella Advisors actually exists, and it also seeks to remake America in a Marxist image, according to a new book by Scott Walter. "ARABELLA: The Dark Money Network of Leftist Billionaires Secretly Transforming America" reveals how America's wealthiest progressives use dark-money networking to fundamentally transform American politics.

If you haven't heard of Arabella Advisors, don't be surprised. Most media outlets have ignored it and its implications for political manipulation by the One Percenters over which progressives love to hyperventilate. Just in the 2020 election cycle alone, Arabella controlled $2.4 billion in dark money -- more than the RNC and DNC raised combined.

How did it use all those funds? I spoke to author Scott Walter a few days ago about how all that money has manipulated the media and electoral politics. You don't hear about Arabella itself, Walter tells me, because that would draw attention to the billionaire elites funding it: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Pierre Omidyar, and more. It operates through "storefronts" on each of the many issues it seeks to influence, with names that sound far more benign than their purpose.

Walter, a veteran of Washington, DC, policy and philanthropy circles, explained how the book lays out Arabella's reach as well as its ambitions. In the lightly edited partial transcript below, Walter explains who Arabella is, and gives us a taste of how it operates through these "storefront" operations. We also talk about Walter's website Influence Watch, and how it can be a valuable tool to see who's behind some of the left's campaigns.


Q: How much did Arabella spend in the 2020 presidential cycle?

A: Well, the nonprofits took in during the 2020 cycle, so that's two years, $2.4 billion. And in case you're wondering for reference, that is more than the DNC plus the RNC and then add a billion, okay? Now in 2022, you would think that's an off year, right? So they have to maybe come down a little bit. Wrong. $3 billion for the 22 cycle. That's more than the DNC, the RNC, the Republican Senate and House Committee, the Democrat Senate and House Committee. Roll all those together, you still gotta add half a billion to get to Arabella's revenues.

Of course all of these protests are being organized and funded by dark money groups on the far left. Even leftwing NYC mayor Eric Adams pointed out how all of these "spontaneous protests" were exactly alike in terms of talking points and tactics. Why are all the tents the same?

"Why is everybody's tent the same?" Mayor Eric Adams asked at a press conference Tuesday. "Was there a fire sale on those tents? There's some organizing going on. There's a well-concerted organizing effort and what's the goal of that organizing? That's what we need to be asking ourselves."

Adams said Kaz Daughtry, a deputy police commissioner, "made a good point" in an interview with Fox when Daughtry said, "If you look at the tents, where did they all get them from? The same place, the same person? Somebody is behind this, and we're gonna find out who it is."

Of course, we know the name of one of the main paymasters -- George Soros, obviously.

Progressive anti-Israel agitators across the country, including those who mobilized at New York City's Columbia University, are associated with groups tied to far-left groups with radical associations backed by dark money and liberal mega-donor George Soros.

National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP), a national organization affiliated with around 200 independent chapters, has had a vocal presence at Columbia University in recent days and at one point said it had walked away from talks with school leaders until administrators pledge not to have them arrested or forcefully removed from their encampment on the Ivy League institution's West Lawn.

NSJP operates under Westchester Peace Action Committee Foundation (WESPAC), a fiscal sponsor, whom Fox News Digital previously reported received a six-figure donation from a nonprofit bankrolled by the George Soros network. WESPAC, whose funding is largely unknown, has espoused anti-israel rhetoric for years, including accusing the government of "apartheid," "ethnic cleansing," "collective punishment" and "war crimes," according to NGO Monitor.

NSJP regularly compares Israel's treatment of Palestinians to Nazi Germany and the Jim Crow era in the United States, accuses Israel of genocide, and has routinely promoted Hamas propaganda since the October 7 attack, Influence Watch reported.

"Since October 7th, SJP has been extremely aggressive on far too many campuses in threatening ways, including the use of violent, genocidal rally calls which include 'from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,' 'Globalize the Intifada,' and 'there is only one solution, Intifada revolution,'" StandWithUs CEO Roz Rothstein told Fox News Digital about the group last year after it was suspended by Rutgers University for anti-Israel provocations.

"It is therefore no surprise that increasing numbers of universities are making the decision to suspend a student group that combines violent rhetoric with violations of university policies, threatening Jewish students on campus."

The big two, William LaJeunesse reports, are George Soros and the vile Rockefeller brothers. But there are many other leftwing dark money groups involved in the shadowy funding.

And students are forced to contribute to these groups via mandatory "student fees."

The New York Post reported on the paid professional protesters appearing at these Organic and Spontaneous Protests.

Copycat tent cities have been set up at colleges including Harvard, Yale, Berkeley in California, the Ohio State University and Emory in Georgia -- all of them organized by branches of the Soros-funded Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) -- and at some, students have clashed with police.

The SJP parent organization has been funded by a network of nonprofits ultimately funded by, among others, Soros, the billionaire left-wing investor.

At three colleges, the protests are being encouraged by paid radicals who are "fellows" of a Soros-funded group called the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR).

USCPR provides up to $7,800 for its community-based fellows and between $2,880 and $3,660 for its campus-based "fellows" in return for spending eight hours a week organizing "campaigns led by Palestinian organizations."

They are trained to "rise up, to revolution."

The radical group received at least $300,000 from Soros' Open Society Foundations since 2017 and also took in $355,000 from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund since 2019.


Representative James Comer promises the Oversight Committee will "follow the money" and tell the American public who's paying for these dark money propaganda efforts.

Update: I should have linked this in the earlier post on Northwestern making concessions to terrorists.
