This is an update to the following article: investmentwatchblog.com/breaking-news-paid-actors-to-protest-at-president-trumps-arizona-rally-tonight/
This is an investigation into the validity of the Craigslist Ad which popped up in an Arizona newspaper before President Trump’s Rally in Phoenix Arizona last night. (August 22, 2017).
I am searching for the actual ad itself in the actual newspaper.
I have found what appears to me to be an actual ad from CRAIGSLIST, BUT IT IS NOT THE ONE I AM LOOKING FOR, NEVERTHELESS, IT IS AN AD THAT CAN BE DEEMED A PART OF THIS INVESTIGATION.
The article even had a direct link to the CRAIGSLIST AD:
When you hit the Craigslist link, here is what you get, and it is very interesting:
Then I found this: www.auditionsfree.com/2016/casting-call-actors-cleveland-republican-national-convention-performance-art-piece/
The last part of the article is a shocker:
QUOTE: Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Type: Other Projects
This Summer Cleveland will play host to what promises to be the most contentious Republican National Convention in more than a century.
Media credentials alone, have already surpassed all records. And reservations in yet uncompleted hotels, are already sold out. But Cleveland has a problem. The city’s national perception is mired in a brutally-accurate acknowledgement of its’ place, among cities ‘least likely’ to have a vacationers appeal.
Should you have any unique artistic qualifications, be able to keep this project a sworn secret, be willing to work for peanuts, and tolerate a dictatorial task-master; you may forward a bio [with media]. You can be assured, that on your deathbed, this particular evening will be one of very few memories etched clearly in your minds.
City or Location of call: Cleveland, Ohio
Please submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 2016-07-19

The following tweet went viral on Twitter, which allegedly exposed the ad MY ORIGINAL ARTICLE SPEAKS OF.
Here is the screenshot:
Published on Aug 21, 2017
Charlie Kirk founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, tweeted a photo of a craigslist ad for “actors” to protest President trumps first out of the swamp rally in Arizona.
In the Craigslist ad, it states “rent-a-mob” which specializes in memorable events, the location? Phoenix Convention Center, Tuesday august 22nd.
They were looking for women, and say the most important quality is enthusiasm and a can do will do spirit. People tweeted back to Charlie Craigslist ads they had found seeking actors to support President Trump at the rally as well.
(I want to alert you that YouTube is pulling some of the videos I choose for my articles without playing them for you the reader. I am seeing this more and more. I apologize.)
You can see the video of the rally here: www.facebook.com/DonaldTrump/videos/10159709733805725/
Here is an article from March, 2016 in which a man comes forward to say he was paid to protest at a Trump campaign rally in Arizona. It appears they believe that the Clinton campaign paid to make this possible.
QUOTE: Trump supporters have been claiming for weeks that the protesters are being paid for by Bernie Sanders’ campaign, but Horner disagrees.
“As for who these people were affiliated with that interviewed me, my guess would be Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Horner said. “The actual check I received after I was done with the job was from a group called ‘Women Are The Future’. After I was hired, they told me if anyone asked any questions about who I was with or communicated with me in any way, I should start talking about how great Bernie Sanders is.” Horner continued, “It was mostly women in their 60’s at the interview that I went to. Plus, all the people that I communicated with had an AOL email address. No one still has an AOL email address except people that would vote for Hillary Clinton.”
I don’t always go to Snopes, but I am trying to find the bottom line truth here, and I wanted to see what they had to say: www.snopes.com/craigslist-ad-trump-rally/
The following picture was given as an example, but when you click the article, you cannot get to it.
SNOPES sites the following as the original rumor or truth, I have not yet decided, nor have I researched enough.
QUOTE: An anonymous multimedia producer posted a Craigslist ad on January 1 soliciting “talented, creative, rational, intelligent, non-fear-mongering and educated media industry professionals or qualified entbusiasts (sic)” to help create a “stunt” aimed at presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
The producer wants to perpetuate an unspecified “Onion-class stunt” that “can easily be repeated (at least 5 times by my estimate) with increasing veracity and afford (sic) mentioned joy.” Compensation is listed as “Millions of dollars worth of glee and, eventually, the admiration of a thankful nation.” The Onion is a current events satire newspaper and website. Fictional articles featured mimic the tenor of actual news articles and include mention of real people and events. The Onion launched a satirical Youtube channel in 2012.
Chicago Craigslist site published by an outfit called “Grassroots Campaigns” seeking Canvass Directors as proof of the existence of an organized professional protest plot against Trump’s White House bid:
Grassroots is hiring smart, politically motivated people to come on board as Canvass Directors and Assistant Canvass Directors to launch and lead campaign offices all across the country. Take on enormous responsibility, while running the campaigns that make the difference!
Currently filling positions in MA, NY, PA, DC, NC, IL, LA, MO, TX IA, CO, WA, CA.
We’re considering applicants for new campaigns in FL, MI, OH, NH, MN, WI, NM, and AZ, with training beginning immediately.
Other sources pointed to an early March 2016 Cleveland Craigslist job ad published by a similar organization, Working America, looking to hire field organizers as evidence that Trump opponents were actually recruiting paid rally disruptors: END OF QUOTE
SNOPES goes on to state the ad campaign against Trump is UNPROVEN.
The following is a tweet from Anne Coulter:
"Several [Trump protesters] admitted answering a Craig’s list ad paying $16.00 an hour for protesters." t.co/a9vRmrUXPJ

I am still looking for an actual ad from CRAIGSLIST.
LOOK AT THIS: www.indivisiblephoenix.com/trump-visit.html
OK, HERE IS A QUOTE FROM MY ORIGINAL ARTICLE:
A group called Indivisible formed by activists states on their website the group “is a project of the Advocacy Fund,” a progressive advocacy group that receives money from the OPEN SOCIETY POLICY CENTER, AN ARM OF SOROS’ OPEN SOCIETY FOUNDATIONS.
OK…now that I have found the INDIVISIBLE WEBSITE, lets see if I can find a link to Trump and to George Sorors.

Here is one site linked, but it looks like a government site to me.
Well, we know that the above ACTS.ORG is the DEMOCRAT’S ORGANIZATION.

QUOTEL We’ve had breakout successes over the past year. But now, there are two big new challenges we’re facing in the right-wing fake news space:
- Donald Trump has launched a project which some reporters are calling “Trump TV.”2 Trump TV is an attempt to deliver fake news and “alternative facts” directly to the American people.
- For years, Fox News has pumped right-wing propaganda into millions of homes. Now, the right-wing media giant Sinclair Broadcasting is trying to do to local TV news what Fox has done to cable. Sinclair is forcing their local TV stations to run over-the-top pro-Trump commentaries by Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn during their local news broadcasts, and after a proposed mega-merger with the Tribune Company, Sinclair would own one out of every six local TV stations in America.2
How We’re Fighting Back Against Right-Wing, Pro-Trump Media
We have an enormous opportunity to respond to these big new challenges and get the truth out tens of millions of times by doubling down on what’s worked over the past year, continuing to innovate, and growing our team. And it’s critical that we make big investments now, to make sure we are prepared to respond to an unprecedented assault on the truth going into the 2018 election season.
So here’s my simple request: Can you join the fight against right-wing pro-Trump media by chipping in to help MoveOn expand our Video Lab team?
AND WHO IS MOVEON.ORG?
WHO FUNDS THEM:
MoveOn.org is primarily funded by small-dollar contributions from its millions of members. Major contributors to MoveOn.org during the 2004 election cycle included financier George Soros who gave US$1.46 million to MoveOn.org Voter Fund; Peter B. Lewis, chief executive of the Progressive Corp., who gave US$500,000 to MoveOn.org Voter Fund.
OK, so there it is. OH, AND WE DO HAVE THIS:
