Dark Money group threatens Dems on opposing Iran nuclear deal
Even as the contours of the nuclear deal with Iran remain unknown (though a total cave in is strongly suspected), a progressive “Dark Money” group, whose donors’ identities are hidden, is threatening Democrats who might oppose the deal to keep their mouths shut and vote with the administration. Adam Kredo reports in the Washington Free Beacon:
A prominent progressive organization linked to the White House and claiming to work for dozens of like-minded groups is threatening to attack any congressional Democrat who objects to a final nuclear deal with Iran, even before the terms of any such agreement have been finalized, according to an email obtained by the Free Beacon.
CREDO Action, the political arm of CREDO Mobile, declared this week in an secret email to journalists that it will punish congressional Democrats who fail to line up behind any deal sealed between the West and Iran.
“Democrats in Congress are the only remaining obstacle to finalizing today’s historic deal,” Zack Malitz, campaign manager for CREDO, said in a statement emailed to reporters on July 2, along with a note that details of the email were not to be published until a deal was actually announced. “Every Democrat should go on the record right now in support of the deal, and pledge to defend it from attacks in Congress.”
“Republicans will try to sabotage the deal and take us to war, but they can’t do it without Democratic votes,” Matlz wrote. “Progressives will hold accountable those Democrats who vote to help Republicans sabotage the deal and start a war.”
CREDO is a member of the sinister Democracy Alliance, a coalition of groups and billionaire funders, thought to include George Soros (who made billions speculating in foreign exchange markets and in the process impoverishing various nations), Herb and Marian Sandler (who made billions off the mortgage bubble before selling their Golden West Financial Corporation to Wachovia Bank right before the crash, which then collapsed Wachovia), and Peter Lewis (whose Progressive Insurance Company specializes in high risk drivers who must pay even higher premiums), among other super-rich progressives who think their income inequality is just fine. These people all know well how to profit off the misery of others while wrapping themselves in the mantle of concern for the poor.
Backing an arms agreement before the terms are even finished tells us that the quality of the agreement is not of any concern. This is all about money and power. And perhaps the opportinity to profit off of crises to come.
