Big-money liberals have gathered this week for a secretive three-day conference where they will plan out the next steps of their “resistance” to President Donald Trump and the Republican “unified government.”
The event, titled Beyond #Resistance, is being run by Democracy Alliance, a group of big-money liberal donors who have each pledged to contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to left-wing groups approved by consensus. Democracy Alliance describes the event at the luxurious La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., as a “safe place” for donors and activist groups to meet—potentially a reference to conservative investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas.
Donations to such groups is called "dark money" in modern political parlance.
A copy of the agenda was obtained and published by The Washington Free Beacon, which it says it obtained from someone in attendance. The conference will culminate with headline events featuring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and billionaire globalist George Soros. The agenda doesn’t describe what the two “resistance” leaders plan to discuss.
Other leading Democratic Party politicians—and potential 2020 candidates—at the conference have included Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). CNN contributor Van Jones and Center for American Progress CEO Neera Tanden have also spoken.
The Free Beacon reports that Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was also spotted in attendance and will likely speak, although her name does not appear on the agenda it published. But, noticeably absent from the proceedings has been billionaire Tom Steyer, a prominent member of Democracy Alliance, who Pelosi slammed earlier this month for launching a $10 million ad campaign calling for the president’s impeachment.
