Uncloaked Allegiances: The Shared Funding of Haley and Anti-Trump Efforts


by Mark Wauck

A cynic might characterize Vivek’s statement as a sort of No Sh*t! moment. Nevertheless, the farther the realization spreads among the great unwashed the better. And, who knows, maybe even the erstwhile liberal literatti and chattering class will have an awakening, too. The Greenwalds and Blumenthals and the rest, who have become regulars on conservative shows and have even become Trump defenders, in their own ways—and perhaps for their own purposes. But, then, conservatives are also having their own Come to Jesus moments these days.

Fox has a good summary of Vivek’s remarks, after Trump’s convincing win in NH—in which 70% of Trump’s votes came from registered GOPers and 70% of Nimrata’s votes came from, well, “others”.

Ramaswamy: ‘Sinister forces at play’ if Haley doesn’t drop out of presidential race: ‘That gets ugly’

“I think that if she stays in this race, it will continue to reveal that there are some sinister forces at work here,” Ramaswamy told Fox News Digital on Tuesday afternoon as New Hampshire residents were casting their votes in the first in the nation GOP primary.

“There’s no path for her to defeat Donald Trump through the front door, which means what they’re actually rooting for is eliminating him from competition and then it becomes no mystery that the very people propping up Nikki Haley are the very people who are also paying for the lawsuits to keep Donald J. Trump off the ballot and the lawsuits against him.”

Ramaswamy said that it was a “dark turn” to see LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, who he called “George Soros Jr.”, donate to Haley and also financially support lawsuits against former President Trump.

“That gets ugly,” Ramaswamy said. “And I think this could really take an ugly turn in the way that this reveals the corruption of the Republican Party itself if Nikki Haley continues to stay in this race.”

Now, for those who didn’t follow the links but kept reading, it’s definitely worth following those links. For example:

Mystery surrounds decision to hide funding details even after tech titan says he’s money behind E. Jean Carroll case

Right. It’s a mystery. As if Hoffman’s not the only wealthy leftist backing this nutter. Or as if, if Trump funded a creepy lawsuit against Zhou or Hunter—of course knowledge of Trump’s involvement would be withheld from jurors. Right?

U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan agreed with a request from Carroll’s lawyer, Roberta Kaplan, to keep the related documents under seal, including future filings and hearings about the issue.

“The interest in public access here is minimal, particularly given that the parties’ previous on-the-record filings already afforded the public meaningful access to information about this otherwise irrelevant and tangential topic,” wrote Kaplan, who noted that some files may be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Kaplan argued that jurors have no business knowing who is funding the lawsuit, claiming that whoever may be financially supporting the legal bills “has nothing directly to do with the ultimate merits” of the case.

Hoffman, one of Silicon Valley’s top donors to Democratic campaigns and political action committees, has donated millions of dollars to left-wing groups. Fox News Digital has previously reported that his money also goes into non-traditional groups that aren’t mandated to report their funding and often operate in the shadows. He was forced to issue an apology in 2018 for funding a group that falsely tried to give an impression that the Russian government was supporting Alabama Republican Roy Moore in a 2017 special Senate election.

While it’s technically true that funding doesn’t go to the “ultimate merits” of the case, it’s also true that lawsuits against high profile public persons are not always filed because they have merit—there are other reasons, some political, some financial, some personal. Vivek is no dummy, but then neither is Judge Kaplan. They both know that in the real world it’s not a coincidence that Hoffman is funding Haley, is funding crazy lawsuits against Trump personally, and is funding meritless efforts to keep Trump off ballots.

Best government money can buy, best legal system money can buy. It’s a twofer! And don’t forget Bluto Barr and Mitch McConnell.

Nimrata randhawa has no less than 15 planned big donor get togethers all scheduled before her dismal results in NH. Nevada is a caucus and she is not on the ticket and then there is SC, her home state where she is despised.
Big donors should keep their money because nimrata won’t be around after Super Tuesday.

And then there’s South Carolina- Nimrata’s home state. Polls show she’s losing by a close to 40-point landslide in her own state. South Carolina is about to hand Nikki the 2nd worst humiliation of her life.

Nimrata is as charming as a yeast infection on prom night.

Democrats simply SCREAM that their failures and incompetence makes them deathly afraid of facing any candidate in a fair contest.
