Democrat big donors: donating to Hillary’s losing campaign was like burning money

This morning, our DCG posted that Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B, which was twice as much as what the Trump campaign spent.

So it should come as no surprise that at least some of Hillary’s big donors think their money was wasted — they might as well have set fire to the piles of cash.

Jonathan Easley reports for The Hill, Dec. 1, 2016, that Democrat big donors went whole hog for Hillary to the tune of more than $550 million, believing she would dispatch Trump, deliver Democrats the Senate, help the party make inroads into the GOP’s House majority, as well as cement Obama’s legacy.

Instead, not only did Hillary lose, Democrats are now in disarray, in the throes of a full-scale and expensive rebuilding project with a rudderless Democratic National Committee (DNC) that won’t elect a new leader until more than a month after Trump is sworn into office.

Adding insult to the injury: The names of many donors were released in the WikiLeaks emails, which has rattled some of the party’s big-money men and women.

John Morgan & Marc Nathanson

John Morgan, an Orlando attorney and one of Clinton’s top fundraisers in Florida, said:

“I may very well be done with political giving entirely. My message to anyone reading this is, ‘Don’t call me, I’ll call you.’ From here on out, I’m giving to charities. I’d much rather give money to build a new Boys & Girls Club than to give to the [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee].”

Investor Marc Nathanson, one of Clinton’s top donors and fundraisers in 2016, says he has no interest in participating in the party’s rebuilding efforts. While he would continue to give money and support to Democratic candidates in gubernatorial and mayoral races in his home state of California, he will stay on the sidelines. He said:

“The feeling I get from big donors out here in California is that they’re not only extremely disappointed, but they’re shell-shocked. So to turn around and say, now it’s time to rebuild the national party and the DNC, I just don’t see it.”

The big donors’ sore feelings are a huge problem for the DNC, which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments.

Some Democrats believe the fundraising panic is being overblown, arguing that in Trump, the party has a fearsome boogeyman that will keep horrified donors in a giving mood. They’re optimistic that jilted donors will change their tune once the DNC elects a new leader and as the midterm elections near. Democrats face a daunting map in the 2018 midterm elections, when they’ll be defending 25 of the 46 seats they currently hold in the Senate. A filibuster-proof majority is within reach for Republicans.

Democrats with a rosier view point to the following:

  • A Nov. 14 donor event in Washington, D.C., including George Soros, was notable for its “bigger than expected turnout.”

  • Gara LaMarche, the president of Democracy Alliancea big money group that funds the Black Lives Matter protests and riots — has been touring the liberal donor hubs of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston to discuss the “progressive” movement’s way forward with top donors. LaMarche said, “There is deep frustration with the Democratic Party and the political consultant class among the donors who put a lot of money into the electoral efforts, who don’t feel their money was spent well. They want to know what went wrong. But there is also an emergency response to protecting policies, whether it’s abortion or EPA regulations or ObamaCare, that is mobilizing and energizing the wider set of progressive donors.”

  • David Brock of the liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America — the Democrat activist whose former boyfriend is James Alefantis, owner of Comet Ping Pong pedo pizzeria — has invited 225 current donors and 175 prospective donors to a meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., over Trump’s inaugural weekend. Brock has ambitious plans to create Democrat counterparts of the Koch Brothers, Breitbart, and the influential citizens watchdog group Judicial Watch.

But even the prospect of the 2018 midterm election isn’t enough to get some angry donors back in the game. One DNC official told The Hill the donors are “tired. They’re upset about the election, and there was significant trauma surrounding the Russians. They’re upset and they’re tired.”

“significant trauma surrounding the Russians”? Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Not only are those Democrat big donors “useful idiots,” they actually believe the Democrats’ fake news!

  3. Then let the idiots keep believing that they have a “good” message! “Yes…come join us, the immoral, illiterate party” (lol) It’s clear that they just haven’t learned a thing. Let them keep going so far left until they just drop off the cliff completely. They’ve got nothing to hang onto anymore! Their rope has turned into a thread!

  8. I am amazed at the complete foolishness of the story “The Russians hacked Hillary’s E-mails to give Trump the Election”.
    If the Russians had hacked her e-mails, they would have had a huge “Intelligence Coup” and could have used that to bribe Hillary into doing anything the Russians and Putin wanted. Hillary is so corrupt and secretive, she would have done anything to keep from being exposed. Since she was willing to sacrifice National Security for the convenience of a private server and to keep from being subject to Freedom of Information Requests from pesky patriots, voters, and corruption investigators, she would have no problem “paying off” Putin & Co. to keep her secrets. She already used her position as SecState to sell them 20% of US uranium production for just a few $million in bribes to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation.

    If the Russians had that info it would be extremely valuable to use to manipulate the President of the United States, so they would have done everything they could to GUARANTEE her election, not scuttle it!

    The Internet buzz that makes much more sense is it was hackers looking for money to scam or news to sell. The Media is suppressing that the GOP campaign was also hacked. But by who? Probably by both scammer hackers and professional Dem operatives. But how did the get in the Hillary net so easily?

    From: http://www.michellesmirror.com/
    “And to blame Russia for something any teenaged hacker might have accomplished during the first half hour of study hall seems a tad silly.

    The hackers sent John Podesta an official-looking email on Saturday, March 19, that appeared to come from Google. It warned that someone in Ukraine had obtained Podesta’s personal Gmail password and tried unsuccessfully to log in, and it directed him to a website where he should “change your password immediately.”

    Podesta’s chief of staff, Sara Latham, forwarded the email to the operations help desk of Clinton’s campaign, where staffer Charles Delavan in Brooklyn, New York, wrote back 25 minutes later, “This is a legitimate email. John needs to change his password immediately.”

    But the email was not authentic.”

    Pretty clever, those “Russians”. Pretty stupid, those Democrats.”
    Once they got into Podesta E-mail, they could get access to everyone he sent Emails to. And everyone that used Hillary’s “Secret Server” including Obama with his “Secret Email address”. The Russians would have never given away such an Intelligence Coup! But the Media, the CIA, and the Washington International Socialist Establishment want all of us to believe that. WikiLeaks got it because they did it, and had no way of profiteering off of it, simply wanted to get the truth out. And there is much more. The “Spirit Cooking” (Satanism) of Podesta & Friends has led to a pedophile ring. And who knows what else is going on with these Political Insiders in Sodom-on-the-Potomac. These are people always looking for “short-cuts” to Power, control of others, and feeding their insatiable egos, so why would the Media not be interested? Because they are all in it, including the Big Money Boys, so the secrets must be kept or the money gets cut off.

  11. Looks like folks like John Morgan are getting sick of their hat being handed to them. They still not ready to trust conservatives, but they’re figuring out they can’t trust the the liberals.
    ’”From here on out, I’m giving to charities… build a new Boys & Girls Club”

    What the Hell. Does David Brook thinks a founding father? Is that a powdered wig. Or is the hair-do why his boyfriend broke up with him?
    The Russians? How bout the elephant in the room. or should I say Jack-ass?
    Big money ain’t necessarily winning the day like it used to.
