We now have proof that the same Koch Cabal that funds Donors Trust also fund both the Manhattan Institute and the Empire Center for NY Policy. Yes, we now have another new tool to track the money.  Details and instructions below.

Yesterday we discovered an amazing tool, www.stinkstanks.org that exposes how the Koch Cabal is using ALEC, the State Policy Network, and so-called think tanks, each with their so-called news outlets are spreading disinformation in our states and literally writing proposed legislation for each state.  In short, a monied coup d'etat attempt to push extreme right wing policies that are mostly harmful to the 99% and their children.

This chart is from the New York stink tank page.

New York's Koch Cabal StinkTanks

We couldn't see exactly WHERE the the Stink Tanks like the Manhattan Institute and the Empire Center actually got their money.  Now we can.

We have another new, powerful Tool that shows who donated, how much, and what year.  We have a FUNDING HISTORY FOLKS:  I am thrilled to introduce you to The Bridge Project

Instructions:

Click The Bridge Project link above to open.

Click on Conservative Transparency

Look for "Name or organization" under SEARCH, enter the name of the stink tank in your area

Look for "FINANCIALS", Click down arrow undernealt where you see Gran...

CHOOSE Grants IN

Click search (not all organizations will list recipients but give it a try.  This is how I found the funders for the Koch's Donors Trust, the Manhattan Institute, and the Empire enter)

LOOK FOR organizations with "Recipient" as the type

Choose an organization that shows "Recipient" and click on it to see where their money came from.

When the search opens you will find:

1.  News about the organization
2.  A list of FUNDERS (taken from 990 tax returns), the amount given, and the year.

Navigation:

Double Click twice on the blue word colum heading Funder to alphabetize the list;
Double Click on the amount to view largest to smallest donation
Double Click twice on the column heading Year to see the progression, over time, of money donated.

I am hoping that others will use these tools to expose the Koch Cabal money being spent in their state. I think the method used in putting this diary together is a possible blue print you can use to find out the Koch Cabal connections in your state.

I thought New York would be a good example because of the influence the Manhattan Institute has.

Below are links to the lists of the Koch Cabal members funding

Donors Trust;
The Manhattan Institute and its news outlet, The City Journal, and
The Empire Center for NY Policy.

In order to prove that the same players are involved in all things Koch, I used one of the largest Koch Cabal money machines, Donors Trust, to compare to the funders of the Manhattan Institute.  They are almost identical.

I used the Bridge Project website to search for "Donors Trust, Recipient" and was thrilled to find a long list of its funders.  This information has been a complete hassle to accumulate using 990 tax returns until now, requiring the tedious task of sifting through 990 non-profit tax returns.  Bridge Report has done this work for us AND presented the information in an easy to use website.

THANK YOU BRIDGE PROJECT.

I am providing the Donors Trust, Recipient list first so that you can compare it to the donors to the Manhattan Project.  You will see the same names on both lists, proving that the Koch Cabal funds both.

If you want to compare the donors, you will need to jump onto a desktop and open two additional windows.  Click on the orange word Funders to view each list and then compare the donors and to see when and how much each donated.  It's quite shocking.

According to the Bridge Project, the Koch Cabal has spent $35 Million to fund the Manhattan Institute, dispelling forever any doubts about its credibity for producing any fair and balanced reporting.
The Big Koch Cabal Money Behind The Manhattan Institute

The chairman of the Manhattan Institute is a Koch guy.  Again, from www.stinktanks.org

Chairman of the Manhattan Institute, Paul Singer

Here's Paul Singer's Muckety map

And, here is the Manhattan Institute's Muckety map that also shows the Koch Cabal connections.

Manhattan Institute - Koch Cabal Funded

Source Watch has written this scathing review of The Manhattan Institute.

The Manhattan Institute (MI) is a right-wing 501(c)(3) non-profit think tank founded in 1978 by William J. Casey, who later became President Ronald Reagan's CIA director. It is an associate member of the State Policy Network.

According to the Manhattan Institute, it is "focused on promoting free-market principles" and has a mission to "develop and disseminate new ideas that foster greater economic choice and individual responsibility."

"The Manhattan Institute concerns itself with such things as 'welfare reform' (dismantling social programs), 'faith-based initiatives' (blurring the distinction between church and state), and 'education reform' (destroying public education)," Kurt Nimmo wrote October 10, 2002, in CounterPunch.

(my insertions)

The Manhattan Institute publishes the City Journal.  

You will find the funders of the Empire Center for State Policy here.  You will see that the two funders are the State Policy Network and the Roe Foundation.

I implore you to check the sources for the information above.  Not everything on the internet is accurate.  If there are any errors in this report, it is due to the sources utilized that relied on the 990 Non-Profit Tax returns reported by these non-profit organizations.

If you have any doubts, go to this link to search and review the actual tax returns.

I HOPE THIS HELPS THE GOOD PEOPLE OF NEW YORK.  

NOW EXPOSE THE KOCH CABAL IN YOUR STATE.

We now have the tools we need to make this process a whole lot less painfail than perusing 990 tax returns.

You can begin to pull back the curtain of the Koch Cabal funding that is usurping the democratic process in your state.

The online tools you can use are:

1. StinkTanks

Find the Koch Cabal organizations operating in your state and, in many cases, find the names of out-of-state non-profits funding them.

2.  Bridge Project

Find out where the money is coming from and going to, and how much was spent each year in your state.

3.  Non-profit 990 tax returns

When you want to double check to see if the reports all jive.  A tad tedious, but scrolling through the list of Grants & Contributions is very telling.

4.  Open Secrets.

A great way to research outside spending or dark money.

5.  Muckety Maps

A quick at-a-glance resource to connect people with organizations, etc.

USE THESE TOOLS and expose this coup.

Write editorials, share with others, write diaries, tweet, facebook.

We must get this information out to the voters before 2014.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
