    @16:30 Wrong  about Target.  It loves political action, and took at major trannie-power position in abolishing the concept of separate rest rooms and fitting rooms for women.  The resulting boycott is harming their productivity, and they are doing this pro-tranny nonsense in very poor economy for retail. My theory is that "shadow entities" who might include (for example) people like George Soros foot the bill, essentially paying Target back whatever they lose in profit from their customers.  What is the shadow entities purpose then in underwriting tranny-power?  Perhaps the entity wants to destroy the US government just the same way that the Ukraine was taken down;  tranny power is humiliating to the public at large,  and destroys the morale of their enemy: the people of the US.

    All NGOs are shadow entities.   Doctors without Borders has developed such a rep for espionage that it's almost comical.

    The phrase "party faithful" is so patronizing.  "Party activists" might work better.  The work of party activists cannot be bought. I once saw a young Black woman wearing a placard for Ross Perot. I stopped to ask her something about his position on civil rights.  She looked totally blank, and told me that she was sorry but she didn't really know his positions on any of the issues.  She was wearing the placard because she was being paid $12/hour to wear it.  Not too persuasive.   How much would the shadows have to pay some  person to study their candidates views, and explain them enthusiastically to the public, using their acting skills when they don't really agree the candidate?   That level of performance might take $30/hour at the very least, and not even the shadows could afford it en masse.   Even Soros activists only get paid peanuts for showing up at events.  So ultimately the public won't buy the shadow puppets.

    @29:14 Is anything more nauseating than self-conscious academic tittering?  Prof mentions Richard Nixon sarcastically, and like Pavlov's dog all these so-called "intellectuals" titter on queue.  What if some young man were to say,  Sorry, Miss, but the miscalculations of Nixon pale in comparison to Benghazi, email-gate, NAFTA etc.?   She would become the typical vindictive liberal; and do everything she could to give him the lowest grade possible.   He likely would also have to stand before a kangaroo court on charges of "micro-aggression" or at least be considered a racism suspect (as if all Whites were not automatically profiled as racists) for the rest of his stay — at this joke of place where he came to "better himself" to the tune of $100K.

    The problem comes down to the fact that the shadows are so deeply entrenched.  The donors (people like Soros)  dictate which judges get appointed. Even the Supreme Court has become entirely political in its activity.

    "Shadow party" is a misnomer.  "Shadow entity" is better.   The word "party" implies that the members agree on certain principles;  in fact, the like of Soros has no principles at all, except making more money for himself.   He is a "party of one."  Or really not a member of any party.

    The points about campaign finance are valid, but with the internet, the power of purchased media is less. All the expenditure in the world can't really help someone whose ideas are so unpopular.   Hillary has tons more money than Trump right now, but she seems to be rather at a disadvantage at this point in time.    Her dear Super-PAC might hang her, as   Soros has been widely reported as funding BLM.
