Ana Maria Archila, one of the two women who confronted Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator on Friday, helps lead a progressive organization funded by billionaire George Soros that heads an $80 million activist effort characterized as part of the anti-Trump “resistance” movement.
The video was riveting, no question about it. America watched mesmerized as Senator Jeff Flake was confronted in the elevator by a sobbing, emotional woman begging Flake to vote against Brett Kavanaugh. The woman begged and pleaded with Flake to “do the right thing’, and the look on his face showed that she was hitting her mark.
So who was that woman? Meet Ana Maria Archila, a paid political activist who serves as the co-executive director for a little group called the Center For Popular Democracy. Who funds that little group? None other than real life arch-villain and end times evil genius superstar, George Soros. Who’s behind the destroy and discredit Brett Kavanaugh movement? Same guy.
But you won’t hear that from CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC or any other other fake news media people who want you to think this was an ‘organic moment’ from a ‘survivor’. She may actually be a survivor of sexual assault, and that’s a terrible thing, but what she was doing at the elevator was a setup and a sham.
FROM BREITBART: Ana Maria Archila and a second woman, 23-year-old Maria Gallagher, both said that they survived sexual assault when they challenged Flake as he entered an elevator prior to his Senate Judiciary Committee vote on whether to approve the nomination of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.
Ultimately, Flake prompted a new FBI investigation into Kavanaugh as a condition for moving forward with the nomination. When asked whether the elevator confrontation contributed to his decision, Flake told the Atlantic that the moment had been “poignant” for him and “it certainly struck a chord.”
ARCHILA IS NOT JUST AN ORDINARY CONCERNED CITIZEN. SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL ACTIVIST. SHE SERVES AS CO-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT THE SOROS-FUNDED CENTER FOR POPULAR DEMOCRACY (CPD) AND MAINTAINS THE SAME POSITION AS THE GROUP’S ACTIVIST ARM, THE CENTER FOR POPULAR DEMOCRACY ACTION.
Flake credited his decision mostly to what he said was his desire to preserve the Supreme Court. “I don’t know if there was any one thing, but I was just unsettled,” he added.
Outside the elevator on Friday, Archila yelled at the senator: “What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court.”
“This is not tolerable,” she added. “You have children in your family. Think about them.” CPD is highly involved in anti-Trump activism
In May 2017, CNN reported that the Center for Popular Democracy Action fund unveiled an “$80 million effort to coordinate the work of dozens of smaller progressive groups from around the country” as part of what the news network characterized as the anti-Trump “resistance” movement. Just as she does with the parent group, Archila serves as co-executive director at the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.
CNN never tells you she works for George Soros, hmm…
Since it is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit political organization, the CPD action fund is not required to publicly release its donor list. However, the fund and its associated main group, Archila’s Center for Popular Democracy, both have been financed by Soros, as the Free Beacon reported.
In October 2014, literature that was part of a CPD event listed Soros’s Open Society Foundations as one of CPD’s “three biggest funders.” The Foundations provided the CPD with $130,000 in 2014 and $1,164,500 in 2015, tax documents show.
In 2016, Soros’s Open Society Policy Center provided $705,000 to the Center for Popular Democracy’s Action Fund.
CPD’s agenda items run the gamut of general national progressive politics, including “Racial Justice,” “Combating Wage Theft,” “Organizing for Climate Justice,” “Organizing for Education Justice,” “Immigrant Rights,” “Wall Street Accountability” and “Voting Rights.”
The CPD and the Make the Road New York immigrant activist group, which has also been led by Archila, partnered last April to form another anti-Trump activist outfit calling itself Corporate Backers of Hate. That Corporate group aims to “name and shame” any companies they claim are either working with Trump or making money from what the group claims is Trump’s “anti-immigrant, anti-worker” agenda.
The anti-Trump Corporate group’s website is set up for activists to send messages to the CEOs and board members of nine major companies, including IBM, Disney, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs.
“We are convinced they have the capacity to move the Trump Administration,” Archila told Time magazine of the project last year. “And to the extent that they are quietly placating the behavior of this White House, they are just as complicit as Ivanka Trump.”
Writing at National Review, John Fund documented Archila’s ties to the CPD and also noted she is a national committee member of the Working Families Party, which has long had close links to the now-defunct, controversial ACORN. READ MORE
