Recently a group of top Democratic supporters had a meeting at the Mandarin Oriental hotel which was sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donor club. The theme of the gathering was based on efforts to combat Donald Trumps 100 day plan and many Democratic and Liberal figures plan on fighting him from the start of his administration. The Democratic Alliance was founded in 2004 during the election in which John Kerry was trying to defeat George W. Bush. Peter Lewis was the insurance mogul that started the group along with several other mega-donors. The purpose of the group was to advocate for the Democratic party while remaining outside and helping them to defend themselves against attacks from other parties. In order to be a part of the organization a donor must pledge at least $200,000. The annual on nybooks.com dues for the organization are $30,000 and include fees and catered events. Since the group was formed it has contributed over $500 million to help push interests for the Democratic party.
George Soros became politically active because he lived throughout the Nazi occupation of his country and saw what can happen when a government takes a wrong turn. He uses his past experiences and insight to help make informed decisions that are meant to help the people of the United States to combat the chance of a similar situation ever occurring in this country. Right now he sees President-elect Donald Trump as a threat to the American people and the American way of life. He says that he incites fear and by doing so he feels he is doing the work of ISIS.
