This little weasel has nothing on the New Marxists

Donald Segretti.

I’m sure, totally forgotten to most, he was the dirty tricks orchestrator for the Nixon campaign during the Watergate days. He forged letters and documents that caused all kinds of headaches for presidential candidate, Ed Muskie. And his many “pranks” against the Democrats back then are almost funny today when you compare them to the lengths that the Marxists are going to sabotage an entire nation.

But you have to wonder if, given the technology that we have today, how much more damage Segretti could have done.

Anyway. I digress.

I keep hoping that someone will find the head of the snake in this Soros thing. Of course, he is the head but you can’t cut his off. There has to be an organization that if, taken down, will destroy the rest of the web he’s created. Every google hit brings you back to David Horowitz. Apparently, he is the only one who has done any research into this shady group of operatives called the Thunder Road Group.

from discoverthenetworks.org:

The Thunder Road Group (TRG) is the strategic nerve center of the Shadow Party. It coordinates strategy for the Media Fund, America Coming Together (ACT), and America Votes — the three groups most involved in Shadow Party strategic planning. TRG is a political consultancy that combines the roles of strategic planning, polling, opposition research, covert operations, and public relations. It is through TRG that the Shadow Party formulates its plans, dispatches orders to the network, and presents its public face to the world. “[The Thunder Road Group] is an operation unlike any other in politics, devising strategy, message, and public relations services for the 527s,” writes The Boston Globe.

TRG is named after a Bruce Springsteen song, “Thunder Road,” whose lyrics declare, “It’s a town full of losers, and I’m pulling out of here to win.” The organization was founded in early 2004 by Jim Jordan, an attorney with a long track record as a Democrat “spin doctor.” Among other high-profile assignments, Jordan handled press relations for the Senate committee investigating DNC fundraising in 1997 and for the House Judiciary Committee during the Clinton impeachment proceedings of 1998…

… Jordan acknowledges that his group engages in opposition research. Some reports indicate that Jordan’s covert operations go beyond ordinary political dirt-digging. According to the American Spectator, for example, Jordan may have helped stage-manage the media circus that disrupted and contaminated the work of the 9-11 Commission…

…The identities of these individuals have been gleaned from chance references in the press, as TRG has no website and has published no list of its personnel.
