That's why wealthy Leftist donors have been quietly pumping massive resources into something called "Arabella Advisors."

And what they have planned for the Internet will send a chill up the spines of every conservative who cares about freedom...

Leftist U.S. Donors Using Secretive Arabella Advisors to Push Government Control of the Internet

The following article is sponsored by Capital Research Center.

A largely unknown, massively funded strategy company pushing the interests of wealthy leftist donors has been quietly funding successful efforts to ensure the federal government's role in control of the Internet.
The secretive Arabella Advisors is a centralized hub that runs nonprofit arms that in turn have spawned a nexus of hundreds of front organizations outwardly designed to appear grassroots but actually working against ordinary people by expanding government control in the lives of Americans.

Arabella's vast network was unmasked in an extensive exposé by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, which documents the shadowy system developed by, housed in and staffed by the for-profit, privately held Arabella Advisors.

The Arabella firm in turn manages four nonprofits: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund. These nonprofit entities play host to hundreds of groups and projects that promote interests and political movements strategically deployed in a long-term campaign to nudge the country to the left.

Arabella's New Venture and Sixteen Thirty funds worked together to spawn another arm calling itself the Media Democracy Fund, which has been working to push so-called "net neutrality" rules that would involve more government control of the Internet, Capital Research's report documents.

Indeed, the Media Democracy Fund played a key role in the Obama administration's enactment via the Federal Communications Commission of net neutrality regulations that took effect in 2015 but were reversed under the Trump administration. The net neutrality rules would have regulated broadband Internet service providers as a public utility, subject to federal government regulations.

Despite the repeal, key groups financed by the Media Democracy Fund continue to push net neutrality. For example, Demand Progress, which received at least $90,000 from the Media Democracy Fund, has been advocating for the reenactment of the Obama-era net neutrality rules, according to Capital Research's report.

The Media Democracy Fund's website lists its funding partners, including the Ford Foundation and George Soros's Open Society Foundations. The Ford Foundation, Soros's Open Society Foundation, and another group called the Democracy Fund also happen to be primary funders to Free Press, a far-left organization cited 46 times by the Obama administration in its arguments for adopting net neutrality, Capital Research's report documents. The
Media Democracy Fund's founders include a former Free Press outreach director.

Free Press founder Robert McChesney is an avowed Marxist who previously recommended the dismantlement of U.S. capitalism to ensure a socialist economic system. "In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles,'" wrote McChesney in a 2009 column.

The secretive Arabella Advisors, meanwhile, may be one of the most sophisticated and influential leftist funding outfits of which the public is largely unaware.

Arabella's nonprofits raised a combined $1.6 billion from 2013-2017 with the aim of advancing "the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests through hundreds of 'front' groups," according to the report. "And those interests pay well: the network's revenues grew by an incredible 392 percent over that same period."

"Together, these groups form an interlocking network of 'dark money' pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash," states the report. "The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left's infrastructure under a mask of 'philanthropy.'"

Do NOT ignore her...
One should have an open mind; open enough that things get in, but not so open that everything falls out
 
A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy

As much as it pains me to say this I've got this hunch that we are rapidly approaching a police state here in America and that within the next 5 years or so we will be unable to leave or travel or even communicate unless we become masters of disguise, tech savvy and encryption.  

I have been having this nagging feeling that I need to leave USA for good soon or else I might never have the opportunity again. Wouldn't be surprised to see "re education" camps and murderous violence in the streets here within that time frame either.  

Brave New World meets Logas Run +THX1138+China+1984 are fast becoming a reality here and unless you "go along to get along" you'll be neutralized and exterminated.  

I keep telling people I know that this country has changed so much even in the last two decades it's mindblowing.

Look into the social credit system. It's being pushed right now by Big Tech. Mark of the Beast anyone?

I've been watching it closely.  I'm not sure I see any way we can avoid it short of seriously learning OPSEC techniques and going totally off the grid/ leaving the country.  

I've been thinking A LOT about this lately.  I know I'm not alone.  

I keep imagining stuff like having communities that live off the grid,  using old school communication techniques like dead drops (Pirate Box, USBs left in hidden locations, pen and paper, old school ciphers etc.) along with I2P ir TOR, self hosted VPNs for digital.  

The last few years I've been teaching myself as much as I can to prepare for this frightening "panopticon" scenario that I feel is not a matter of if, but when.  

Have you seen the stuff China does in Xiajiang? Facial recognition, swiping all data off of phones at checkpoints and no travel if your social credit score is bad. Crazy dystopian stuff.  They are talking about something similar here for all international travelers and probably eventually domestic too. If you add that onto a manufactured financial crisis that forces a centralized (a la Facebooks "Libra") digital currency to become global than even access to your own money will be contingent on compliance.
