Meet The Radical Leftist Group Behind Those Desperate Anti-Trump Celebrity Ads [VIDEO]

December 19, 2016

A mysterious group behind a celebrity ad campaign aimed at convincing GOP electors to cast their electoral votes against Donald Trump on Monday is led by a liberal political operative who in the past has deployed questionable — if not creepy — tactics.

Americans Take Action is listed as the backer of the ads, which were published online last week and feature Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and other actors pleading with Republican electors to dump Trump.

There is little public information about the group. It is listed as a 501(c)(4) group and is registered in Maryland. But a deeper investigation by The Daily Caller reveals that a liberal activist named Ryan Clayton is heavily involved in its operations.

Clayton, who has written for The Huffington Post and founded the left-wing site, US Uncut, served as campaign chairman for Lawrence Lessig, the Harvard professor who ran for president last year on a platform of reforming the electoral and campaign finance systems.

In an interview with an Oregon news outlet published this weekend, Clayton urged electors to reject Trump because of questions about the Republican’s relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

    Hollywood is made up of a lot of people who live in a make believe world and the need to realize that We the people are fed up with their BS. To Martin Sheen, stuff it.

  • CBUJAN says:

    Martin Sheen has always been Un-American. Thinks he knows best but knows nothing.

  • teaman says:

    I’m going to predict the dems will lose at least 12 more senate seats in 2018 and it’s all because of people like this group (the move on, the Hollywood idiots). You are trying to destroy the American system. You need to realize America will NEVER be a Socialist or Communist country or a member of the New World or one world government (call it what you want). So quit trying to change our country, you will sleep better.

  • Rick D. says:

    These elitists, Hollywood airheads are so repulsive that I think honest, hard-working Americans should boycott any of their movies or concerts. Thankfully,in 24 hrs, we’ll have all this behind us & Trump will be POTUS.

    1. Anouk says:

      We did stop to go to movies lately and didn’t want to give our money to these anti American Hollywood idiots.
      Except Clint Eastwood’s movies and some others…

      I’ve been doing that for years….I’m to the point where I ‘ve worked my way back to old WW2 movies!!! Comedies from the 30’s and silent films. I don’t even know the names of any of the celebrities under 40years old….and the sun still rises in the east and sets in the west!!

      Rick, the sad fact is that these obnoxious jackwads are going to be gangbuster lawless over the next 4 years!!! Wouldn’t surprise me to see Code Pink start blabbing about how come we are not out of Iraq and Afghanistan yet!! To think that Poseur in the ‘People’s’ House got a Nobel Peace Prize before he started wars in Libya and Syria….they could have at least waited until he actually started them if they really want to be hypocrites!!!

      These clowns do not know about real life and they want to run the country.
      Shame on them. I wish they lose a lot of people who will refuse to go to see their movies.

    Russia/Trump have no relations but if they want to know who does Hillary gave them our uranium and O was on an open mic saying tell your president I can do more when I am re-elected. The there is the little matter regarding the Ukraine when they wanted our help against Russia and O said sorry there was no real Treaty between you and that president who made this agreement so can’t honor it. Then you have O taking away the Shield.

    Too boot Russia never told Hillary to use an server that wasn’t secure and have Classified and Top Secret information on it, and it was Comey that brought that to light along with saying she took those cell phones etc with her all over the world and could surely have been hacked. The Russians didn’t tell her to lie about Benghazi. This has nothing to do with Russians. The hacker, released in the UK news was a disgruntled DNC worker and the recipient of them was a British rep who met the person in America and gave them to Assange who he works for.

    This is BS like everything has been across our country during O’s time and due to our lack of Real News through the Main Media, sites on the net there are still people in the dark and not wanting the lights to come on because if and when they do there will be many big names, H and O who might find themselves in prison for life.

      Tiger, Also the ‘Popular Vote Scam’ breaks down as follows: Vote counts are all approximate and do not adjust for fraud…..Total counts: The Hag 62.8Million vs.Trump 61.5Million….. Total Votes Kalifornia and New York : The Hag 11.5Million; Trump 6.5Million. ….Summary The Hag got 5 Million more Commies to vote for her in these two states, and Nation wide her total was only 1.3Million over Trump. Conclusion #1 :The other 48 States totaled 3.7Million more votes for Trump, and the SOLE reason for The Hag’s excess popular votes were Kalifornia and New York…..Conclusion #2 The Hag has the electoral votes from Kaliphornia ( Muslim /Commie combo) and New York included in her overall tally …as she should …..Conclusion #3 ; The Electoral College is performing as intended so that a few large Cities do not have sole control of the Federal Government.
      If the Dems and their (P)sycophants in the colleges and the media only had the intellectual integrity and the knowledge base to actually analyze the situation…they would see that the ‘Old worn out document’ created by our founders is a work of genius that can be read and interpreted by the most common of men to give them the power to live freely in this Republic ( not Democracy Mr. Constitutional Lawyer Obutthole)…..if they ‘can keep it’.( paraphrasing Ben Franklin)
      “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. ” ( Ben Franklin)….The reason we are where we are ….and the reason we desperately need to be where we ain’t!!! ( Popeye)

        THANKS MUCH . . .
        “The Hag” made my day!

        Wolfman – could not agree more; subtracting the tens of millions she received in NYC (including its immediate environs), LA, and San Fran, she’d have more than ten fewer votes. Also, literally millions of illegal aliens were allowed to vote; here is VA all one needs now is a drivers license to vote; I pulled out my voter registration card and was told that wasn’t needed any more!! Also, again here in VA, Gov McCauliffe (part of the Clinton presidency mafia, who was given the governorship here since it’s a battleground state) passed a rule allowing convicted felons to vote en masse. The court’s here ruled that he had to pardon people individually, so he cheated. He simply had an ‘autopen’ sign 60,000 felons individual forms so they could vote, and HE INCLUDED A LETTER SUGGESTING THEY VOTE FOR HILLARY. If that is not straight up voter fraud, I do not know what is! Back to illegal aliens; my late aunt (a CITIZEN) was a latina; I speak some spanish, and have worked with many latinos here in VA. Many of the woman had babies here, so they get to stay; THEY ALSO GET TO VOTE, so I know for a fact that this fraud goes on nationwide. The most conservative estimate is that she received a minimum of 3 million illegal alien votes. Even if we accept that low ball figure, there alone goes here ‘popular vote’. Also, I just was turning twelve when in 1960, NIXON won the popular vote, but JFK won the electoral college. Didn’t here any Dem whining then!

        Wow just Wow and Wow great stuff.

  • itsfun says:

    Perhaps Martin Sheen should have done his job as a father, instead of trying to tell us how to vote and live.

  • David Stewart says:

    Isn’t it nice that these people from LaLa Land at least think they know enough about Trump to have these erronious beliefs; unlike the wannabe dictator of the last eight years about whom nothing was known?

  • Blue says:

    Thanks for the heads-up about the radical anti-american group which calls itself “Americans Take Action”!

  • Patriot159 says:

    Dig deeper and you’ll find Nazi George Soros too.

        His family was from the Ghetto Jewish establishment . He turned in Jews to the German military.

    2. Anouk says:

      I do not understand this country didn’t get rid of this ugly criminal.
      He and his sons are the problem we have now with the election. He is a America hater and he is using his wealth to destroy this great country.
      Send him to Putin. He will know what to do with him.

        Obama will have more “Flexibility” now.
