Walter Talks Arabella on Radio Free Hillsdale Hour

Scott Walter on Radio Free Hillsdale Hour.

Scott Walter talked about his most recent book Arabella: The Dark Money Network of Leftist Billionaires Transforming America on Radio Free Hillsdale Hour.

Arabella Advisors is a for-profit company in Washington, DC—what we call a Beltway bandit consulting political firm. Arabella Advisors runs a “dark money” empire, which can be visualized as a pyramid. At the top of the pyramid is Arabella Advisors, a for-profit company, that controls everything below. In the middle of the pyramid are six nonprofits, which are where the money goes. At the base of the pyramid—what ordinary Americans see—are hundreds upon hundreds of fake grassroots organizations. These organizations, such as Secure Michigan Elections and Floridians for a Fair Shake—are really just websites run from an office in Washington, DC.

This structure helps hide the flow of money from donor to eventual recipient, which is very convenient for a billionaire with a political agenda, such as George Soros, Mark Zuckerburg, Bill Gates, and Hansjörg Wyss.

Scott Walter’s segment begins at 24:25.
