The demonstrators were paid by an organisation called WashingtonCAN, funded by the Open Society Foundation which is run by George Soros.
Another ad ran by Clean Water Action hiring help against Trump, also directly links to the Open Society Foundation.
President-elect Donald Trump told CBS’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” that professionals were orchestrating the protests against his victory. Phony demonstrators showed up at other anti-Trump events around the country, but Stahl suggested that these were spontaneous gestures because they were “in every city”.
But the job listings were found for every city where protests “erupted”.
In a report from November 12, USA Today too has tried to discredit the idea that the professional activist community is involved with organizing anti-Trump protests. Unfortunately WikiLeaks has exposed the “ordinary citizens” as experienced protest organizers and activists.
USA Today’s presented people from “all walks of life” that were unhappy about the voters’ choice for president, but their first interviewee was a hardened organizer who has had considerable experience on the activist circuit, and in that capacity she worked on the presidential primary. Not exactly the “spontaneous concern” presented by the newspaper.
Yong Jung Cho, interviewee, organized a march from the White House on Wednesday night to Trump’s hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue. She has been exposed by WikiLeaks in a February 2016 email from the Podesta files, as “350 Action Campaign Coordinator”. She even boasts about her skills on Twitter.

The profile highlights her experience as an organizer on the protest scene and her involvement with the presidential primary at the state level, She is no “ordinary citizen”, spontaneously taking her dismay to the streets.
Clearly the “reputable” newspaper forgot to properly identify its sources.
The Daily Caller reported that a march and demonstration against Trump at Trump Tower essentially fizzled Saturday when only 500 “protesters” of the promised 5000 showed up. Infiltrating the crowd, a reporter learned most were from MoveOn or the Occupy movement.
Ben Wikler, Washington director for the professional activist group MoveOn, is even quoted – only to insist that these are not organized protests but an “enormous outpouring of spontaneous energy and concern.”
But MoveOn.org, founded by Soros, issued a press release on Wednesday openly admitting to working behind the scenes to fuel the “protests”. The release, titled “Americans to Come Together in Hundreds Peaceful Gatherings of Solidarity, Resistance, and Resolve Following Election Results,” reads:
Hundreds of Americans, dozens of organizations to gather peacefully outside the White House and in cities and towns nationwide to take a continued stand against misogyny, racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia. Tonight, thousands of Americans will come together at hundreds of peaceful gatherings in cities and towns across the nation, including outside the White House, following the results of Tuesday’s presidential election.
Within hours, about 275 protests and vigils had been organized nationwide Wednesday, with Wikler pretending: “There was an enormous outpouring of spontaneous energy and concern.”
Several marchers even admitted to answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters.
Although the organization claims to be behind “peaceful gatherings,” many events turned violent. At a rally in Portland attended by more than 4 000 people Thursday night, police declared it a riot and fired tear gas and rubber bullets at the crowd after they were attacked by protesters, who smashed shop windows and vandalized cars. Police arrested 26 rioters.
According to ZeroHedge “‘Protests’ are orchestrated by George Soros and front groups for the Oligarchy such as change.org and other fake progressive groups funded by the oligarchs.”
The Chicago Machine of Rahm Emmanuel, a Clinton surrogate and mayor, generated bodies in his city. Rahm’s brother Ari, ironically, was Trump’s agent in the reality TV business.
On Sunday, President-Elect Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told reporters, “It’s time really for President Obama and Secretary Clinton to say to these protesters, ‘This man is our president.'” Conway went on to suggest that many of the protesters were paid.
Former mayor of New York City and a member of the Trump transition team Rudy Giuliani told reporters he too believes professional protestors are inciting the protests. A recent video showed rows of busses dropping off protestors in Chicago, exposing the liberal media slant on “grassroots” protests as a fabrication.
Among the emails hacked from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta and published by WikiLeaks was one from September 9, 2007 that was sent from Podesta’s think-tank Center for American Progress and shared with MoveOn.org. It included an attachment, a strategy document seeking financial support from George and Jonathan Soros, Peter and Jonathan Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steve Bing, and John Sperling for agitation.
“Although the prospect for continual electoral gains are solid – and the assets of the progressive movement far better than in years past – several gaps remain to be filled. Chief among these is better connection between ground activity and substantive content and messaging,” wrote Podesta in the 13-page document to Democratic funders. “In order to win next year, we must do a better job of controlling the public dialogue and overall framework of the election.”
In an article from 2004, the Washington Post revealed that Soros and his wife, Susan Weber Soros, gave $1.46 million to MoveOn.org.
In 2014, a data analytics company called Catalist, specializing in progressive causes, received a new round of investment funding, including $2.25 million from liberal billionaire George Soros, CNN reported at the time.
The left wing organization is one of a number of progressive organizations affiliated with Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Soros-affiliated organizations across the world are deeply connected to various color revolutions, the Arab Spring, and a number of other political uprisings across the globe.
According to New Eastern Outlook, Soros admitted to financing the 2013-2014 Maidan Square protests that brought the current unpopular government in Ukraine into power.
Meanwhile George Soros and other liberal mega-donors gathered in Washington for a three-day, closed-door meeting where they discussed opposing Trump’s plan for his first 100 days in office.
According to Politico, the meeting, which began on Sunday night at Washington’s Mandarin Oriental hotel, was sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donor club. Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairman Keith Ellison attended the gathering.
It the first major gathering of the institutional left since Trump’s victory. As Politico states:
“If the agenda is any indication, liberals plan full-on trench warfare against Trump from Day One. Some sessions deal with gearing up for 2017 and 2018 elections, while others focus on thwarting President-elect Trump’s 100-day plan, which the agenda calls “a terrifying assault on President Obama’s achievements — and our progressive vision for an equitable and just nation.”
The Democracy Alliance, or DA, bases their strategy around the idea that minorities and women constituted a so-called “rising American electorate” that could tip elections to Democrats. The Democracy Alliance has fed upwards of $500 million toward liberal activist groups and candidates since Soros co-founded the group in 2005, according to Politico.
“All members of the DA are required to give $200,000 a year to recommended activist groups and pay annual dues of $30,000 to fund the DA staff and its meetings.
Gara LaMarche, the president of the DA, told donors Sunday evening that some reassessment is in order for the Democratic party. “You don’t lose an election you were supposed to win, with so much at stake, without making some big mistakes, in assumptions, strategy and tactics,” LaMarche said.”
But the clock is ticking for leftist “progressive” leaders hiring and bussing in protesters against the elected president. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are curiously silent about the continued public violence in their name and have so far both refused to denounce the paid revolutionaries despite their solemn pleas to “work together” to ensure a smooth transition for the new administration.
Their silence has become outright complicity in the street riots, for which they, as public figures, should now be held accountable.
It’s been almost a week since Trump won the 2016 presidential election, but the fires set by rioters still rage, and not in cities that Trump won. Quite the opposite. The riots are happening in Portland, Los Angeles, and New York City, each of which are Clinton strongholds.
