Lifezette: "A newly formed left-wing activist group with ties to liberal billionaire George Soros invaded the lobby of the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday morning, causing security and police to scramble to the Massachusetts Avenue building in Washington, D.C. But besides being loud and obnoxious, the organized protesters — apparently bused in from an airport — did little harm.
Staffers inside the Heritage Foundation trolled the protesters by holding "Repeal Obamacare" signs in the fourth-floor windows.
That enraged the protesters, who began cursing and "flipping the bird" at bemused Heritage staffers.
The protesters were remarkably organized. They got off buses, declined to speak to members of the media, and later marched to a church to hear activists speak. U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also spoke to People's Action at the church.
The group then protested in front of the White House, where members risked arrest by lining arms in front of building's North Lawn gate. Group members claimed on Twitter as many as 1,200 people showed up for the day of action, which also included going to congressional offices.
Besides having a dirty carpet in their lobby, Heritage officials took the event in stride and brushed off the protest.
"Liberal activists stormed our offices on Capitol Hill to protest Heritage's Blueprint for Balance and our recommendations to the Trump administration," said Sarah Mills, a Heritage spokeswoman. "The Heritage Foundation and conservatives across the country will not be bullied or silenced by staged protesters backed by progressive special interest groups connected to George Soros.".......
Soros is the only original Nazi still active in politics and funded much of the recent violence.

"President Donald Trump recently released his first budget blueprint, “America First: A Budget to Make America Great Again.” Trump’s budget outlines his administration’s priorities for discretionary spending.
According to several news reports, the Trump administration relied on The Heritage Foundation’s 2017 “Blueprint for Balance” to generate some of the key concepts outlined in Trump’s proposal.
“The proposed cuts hew closely to a blueprint published last year by the conservative Heritage Foundation,” The Hill reports.
“Many of the White House proposal’s ideas are identical to a budget blueprint Heritage drew up last year,” The Intercept writes.
And shortly before the release of Heritage's new 2018 Blueprint for Balance, The Washington Post wrote that the “Trump budget owes a huge debt” to Heritage. The piece explains that the administration “turned to … the Heritage Foundation — for inspiration” when formulating plans for the president’s skinny budget.
The Post also wrote that when the administration rolls out more detailed plans for tax and spending, Heritage could once “again display its influence.”
There are 53 specific instances where Trump’s proposed budget blueprint mirrors Heritage’s suggestions.
Some of the suggestions the Trump administration adopted from Heritage’s “Blueprint for Balance” include the following:
- Eliminating the Appalachian Regional Commission
- Eliminating the National Endowment for Arts
- Reducing funding for Environmental Protection Agency programs
- Eliminating or reducing over 20 categorical programs that do not address national needs
- Terminating funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, reduces spending on Formula Grants
- Eliminating competitive project grant programs
Winfree served as lead author on Heritage’s February 2016 budget blueprint.
Before the election, Heritage scholars created the blueprint for the incoming president and Congress to implement conservative policies, according to Romina Boccia, deputy director of Heritage’s Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies and Grover M. Hermann research fellow.
“It’s reassuring to see that many of Heritage’s policy proposals are reflected by the administration in the president’s recent budget request,” Boccia said.
“Our country needs the serious reforms outlined in the ‘Blueprint for Balance’ in order to rein in the bloated Washington bureaucracy, strengthen national defense, and unleash economic growth and economic freedom,” she added.
Trump is scheduled to release his full budget in May, which will include not only discretionary spending but also mandatory spending, a tax plan, and additional policy proposals.".......
