Let’s go deeper shall we?
Notice the name Alexandra Rojas. She is the Executive Director of Justice Democrats. The team at Justice Democrats includes: Corbin Trent, Zack Exley and Saikat Chakrabarti. Chakrabarti is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff and the brainchild behind the Green New Deal.
There is another fella named Sean McElwee. He is the tech guy behind all the fancy social media and websites. He is also the found of Data for Progressives, the left-wing think tank where at least ‘abolish ICE’ was born. McElwee is also the activist that beats the drum of equal votes and voter suppression. Imagine his email directory and how often he sends out talking points to all the Democrat caucuses in the House and Senate as well as the DNC leadership like Tom Perez.
So, back to Saikat Chakrabarti and his idol Subhas Chandra Bose. Before and after working on the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign where all these people met and collaborated, Saikat promoted the legacy/manifesto of Subhas Chandra Bose.
Both being of Indian decent, Bose traveled Europe in the mid 30’s and came to know Benito Mussolini. Ah, but during the early 40’s, Bose fled to Germany after the government of India sought to arrest him for mass disobedience and protests of the British and the government of India. After two years, he left for Japan in a German U-180 submarine. As a side note, the Hitler regime endorsed and promoted the Bose‘Free India Government’, the Bose mission and the propaganda war at the close of WWll.
So, the plan is to continue to primary Democrats in Congress under the ‘Brand New Congress’. So far, here is a photo of their success, with more to come.
Beyond Data for Progress, the progressives have been using a pollster called YouGov Blue. Elizabeth Warren loves that pollster as does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Media including NBC and CNN taps that source for talking points and headlines.
John Ray is the senior policy analyst at YouGov Blue. He is after Senator Tom Cotton and Cory Gardner but don’t forget Hillary could be a large part of all this due to her former campaign press secretary Brian Fallon. Fallon at one point worked on the Kerry-Edwards presidential campaign, for Chuck Schumer, was the press secretary for Senator Robert Menendez and later moved to the Justice Department, working for Eric Holder.
Fallon now is the founder and executive director of Demand Justice, a robust operation that was protesting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Oh, by the way, his wife, Katie was the former White House Director of Legislative Affairs in the Obama administration. The swamp is still out there and advising democrat legislators as well and cultivating new candidates.
This is hardly a comprehensive summary, but in hopes the reader has enough information to research deeper and understand the socialist machine and operatives. Tough head-winds ahead, so be armed with the operatives and the mission.
