$15,000 that year went to Sojourners, an organization run by Jim Wallis, described as a spiritual adviser to Obama.
Wallis, once a member of the Obama White House “faith council,” is a socialist activist who has championed communist causes and once labeled the U.S. “the great captor and destroyer of human life.”
Wallis’s Sojourners publishes a magazine that actively lobbied for communist regimes that seized power in Latin America in the late 1970s, including the Sandinista dictatorship in Nicaragua. Sojourners in the 1980s was a fierce opponent of the U.S. nuclear buildup, claiming the policy was “an intolerable evil” irreconcilably at odds with Christianity.
Meanwhile, the Public Welfare Foundation under Leff donated $50,000 in 2007 to the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, an anti-police outfit run by Van Jones.
Jones resigned as Obama’s advisor for “green” jobs after it was exposed that he had founded a communist revolutionary group and called for “resistance” against the police and the U.S. government.
Leff’s fund in 2007 also financed the Marxist-oriented Institute for Policy Studies.
This column counted at least $245,000 steered from Leff’s center to various ACORN offshoots, including Florida ACORN, Minnesota ACORN and the ACORN institute.
In 2008, the foundation gave $55,000 to the Herndon marketing firm, with 2009 seeing another $100,000 grant.
The little-known Herndon Alliance has been behind the marketing of Obamacare since the inception of the legislation. It was the group that crafted President Obama’s false claim that Americans can maintain their choice of doctors and insurance plans.
WorldNetDaily previously reported on Herndon’s radical ties, including its partnership with the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress.
Other Herndon partners are the AFL-CIO, MoveOn, National Council of La Raza and the socialist-oriented SEIU union.
Yet another Herndon partner is Citizens Action of Wisconsin, an arm of the Midwest Academy. Midwest is dedicated to teaching the tactics of radical organizer Saul Alinsky
