As Democrats continue to push their radical agenda, it’s important for Republican voters to know who is pulling the strings behind the scenes. Recently released tax filings reveal that a dark money group tied to Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss has funneled tens of millions of dollars into left-wing campaigns.
The Fund for a Better Future (FBF), which has received the majority of its funding from two nonprofit foundations controlled by Wyss, provided large sums of money last year to organizations dedicated to changing the Supreme Court, supporting President Biden’s “Build Back Better” initiative, addressing voter suppression, and advocating for aggressive climate change policies.
One group that benefited significantly from FBF’s funding is the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), a powerful environmental organization that supports a transition away from fossil fuels and is active on Capitol Hill.
In 2021, FBF gave nearly $10.7 million to LCV, the largest donation the group made to any organization that year. Interestingly, the president of the Wyss Foundation, Molly McUsic, is also the president of LCV and a director on the board of the Berger Action Fund, two Wyss-linked groups.
FBF also provided $10 million last year to Priorities USA Action, a left-wing political action committee that works to elect Democratic candidates nationwide. Priorities USA Action was aligned with former President Obama and former Secretary of State Clinton in 2012 and 2016, respectively, and has been described as the largest Democratic super PAC in 2020.
The chairman of Priorities USA Action, Guy Cecil, previously served as the executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and as national political director for Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.
In addition, FBF gave $4.9 million to Fair Fight Action, a group founded by former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams to “protect the freedom to vote.”
The group has been at the center of controversy, with accusations of voter suppression and fraud. FBF also gave $2.9 million to Building Back Together, a group that was founded to “champion the Biden-Harris agenda” and has advocated for key Biden priorities including the American Rescue Plan, the 2021 infrastructure bill, and the Inflation Reduction Act.
The executive director of Building Back Together, Danielle Melfi, led the Biden presidential campaign’s efforts to win Wisconsin in 2020.
Another recipient of FBF’s funding is Demand Justice, a judicial activist organization that seeks to transform the U.S. court system to be more progressive. Between 2016 and mid-2020, FBF received $45.2 million, representing the majority of its funding, from the Berger Action Fund, according to The New York Times.
While FBF claims to work with donors and changemakers to advance bold solutions to society’s problems, it’s clear that their true agenda is pushing a left-wing, progressive agenda.
Republican voters need to be aware of these shadowy groups and the influence they have on the Democratic Party. It’s time to stand up for conservative values and push back against the radical agenda being pushed by the Democrats and their financial backers.
