Lefty David Brock to Use Shareblue to ‘Kick Donald Trump’s A- -’
Julia A. Seymour
Left-wing political operative David Brock intends to use his network of at least four different organizations to “delegitimize” Donald Trump’s presidency.
Washington Free Beacon reported that a 44-page confidential memo it obtained outlined the liberal’s strategy to defeat President Trump by using super PAC American Bridge, the Shareblue media site and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW). CREW has already filed lawsuits against Trump since Inauguration Day.
Brock is a former conservative who admits he ”consciously lied” about his work before converting to being liberal. He is also the founder of Media Matters for America, a non-profit organization which claims to monitor and correct “conservative misinformation.” liberal foundations — including Rockefeller Brothers fund, Marisla Foundation, Grantham Foundation, Schmidt Family Foundation, and Wallace Global Fund — have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to MMFA.
But his more recent endeavors are meant to take down the new president, although his efforts failed to stop Trump in November. The confidential memo boasted that American Bridge has “20,000 hours of video, 289 candidate research books, and the largest available archive of Trump research in the Democratic Party” as part of its “Trump War Room.”
However, Shareblue is meant to be the “nucleus” of the anti-Trump efforts.
“We will delegitimize Donald Trump’s presidency by emboldening the opposition and empowering the majority of Americans who oppose him,” the memo stated. “Shareblue will be the dynamic nucleus of a multi-platform media company that informs, engages, and arms Americans to fight.”
Brock intends to use Shareblue to “weaponize opp research and perfect its delivery system” and aims to have that information “repeated in Democratic communications and paid political ads.”
Shareblue has many editorial priorities some of which included “nonstop coverage of the influence of Vladimir Putin and Russia on Trump and his administration,” and “spotlighting the Trump administration’s vast ties to white nationalists.”
Free Beacon also reported that Brock plans to use America Bridge to get Trump impeached by spending $7.8 million on the war room efforts in 2017. The memo said the project would involve 25 researchers, a communications team of 16 and “a robust digital program to deliver our content directly to voters.”
However, his efforts aren’t being embraced by all liberals. The Daily Beast reported on Jan. 26, that “many leading Democratic organizers and operatives are wishing the man would simply disappear.”
