EXCLUSIVE: MoveOn Finances In The Red?

October27, 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As part of our normal duties to keep our readers informed regarding the important political and national security developments of the day we “subscribe” to dozens of leftist, Islamist and other subversive groups’ newsletters. It’s really the only way to gauge the effectiveness of the alt-Right/traditionalist/nativist/libertarian’s push back as well as have some idea what is going on in the bowels of the Marxist left...

Created during the Clinton era to stave off the impeachment [he was impeached] and conviction [he was not convicted] of President Clinton over perjury charges, MoveOn rapidly grew to be one of the predominant hard left organizations in America.

The organization has over the years experienced shortfalls which were covered by leftist sugar daddies such as George Soros. As a matter of fact, it has oft been claimed that MoveOn owns the Democrat Party and George Soros owns MoveOn [ an organization which he heavily funds]

With that in mind it appears that MoveOn is in the Trump era, despite the use of desperate tactics to chum their base, falling seriously short of cash. Of course this may simply be another disingenuous tactic to raise greenbacks:

"Dear MoveOn member,

In my three years, four months, and 10 days as MoveOn's chief financial officer, I've only emailed you a few times.

As the "numbers guy," I oversee MoveOn's finances and operations, but I'm writing to you now because I have a decision to make as I get ready to close out MoveOn's financial accounts for this quarter. And I need your help.

I'll get straight to it: For the first time in the Trump era, MoveOn is falling behind. We're coming up short this month by about $250,000, and I've cleared my desk to help my fundraising colleagues close the gap before the end of the month.

Which is why I'm asking: Will you please chip in $3 and help MoveOn close out the month without cuts to our critical work?

Here's the deal: MoveOn spent more last quarter than we anticipated. I'll tell you why in a moment (though—spoiler alert!—"Defeating Trumpcare" is a big part of the reason). But the bottom line is that our fundraising didn't keep pace with our campaigning expenses.

So either I have to help close MoveOn's financial shortfall, or I have to meet with our executive directors Anna and Ilya and propose cuts to our work over the next two months.

[name redacted], my brain may be focused on stretching MoveOn's lean and mean budget, but my heart is passionate about MoveOn members' unparalleled and highly effective work for progressive change.

With major tax and budget fights in Congress on the horizon, plus the Dream Act, plus defending our health care victory, plus gearing up to take back the House in 2018, I can't see anywhere MoveOn members aren't needed to help lead the charge…”

Whether the sun is finally setting on one of Berkeley’s most infamous products or the “shortfall” is a fundraising ruse is yet to be determined. It’s our guess that MoveOn has really outlived its usefulness and is now being eclipsed by more sophisticated organizations that share its political goals, so the above missive might indeed show that the group is in serious financial jeopardy.
