“Look Ahead America” has a Secret and Not a Good One

Look Ahead America  (LAA) has a secret that’s hidden so successfully that “right wing” publications like Breitbart, The Gateway Pundit and Steve Bannon’s War Room are promoting it. It is difficult to believe that they would knowingly promote an organization that is misleading the American public. 

Billed as a Republican reform group, LAA is anything but.  In fact, it will more likely be used to ensure that certain election reforms do not happen or that the reforms enacted will further consolidate the manipulations and control over our election system.  Former President Donald J. Trump expressed similar concerns pertaining to Georgia’s recent election reforms, stating:

“Georgia’s election reform law is far too weak and soft to ensure real ballot integrity! Election Day is supposed to be Election Day, not Election Week or Election Month. Far too many days are given to vote.  Too much “mischief” can happen during this very long period of time.”

Matt Braynard, LAA’s founder, gained national attention when his group, the “Voter Integrity Project” stepped forward with claims that Dominion committed election fraud.  Whether or not Braynard knew that there was already a legitimate group named “Voter Integrity Project” is unknown.  It is known, however, that the real Voter Integrity Project  immediately and rightly disassociated itself from Braynard.  Despite the protestations from Voter Integrity Project, Braynard continues to use the co-opted name on the Look Ahead America website.

Braynard led the data operations for Trump’s 2016 campaign but was fired due to a “personnel issue,” according to a Mother Jones article that tries too hard to convince that Braynard is an ardent conservative and Trump supporter.  According to Politico:

Braynard, the former Republican National Committee strategist Trump had hired to run his campaign’s data team, was let go by the campaign a couple weeks ago, multiple sources also told POLITICO.  Neither Braynard nor Lewandowski commented when asked whether Braynard left of his own accord or was fired…According to a person familiar with the campaign, Braynard’s departure has left some on the campaign unable to access some of its files.” 

Even more disturbing are Braynard’s connections to eBay founder, Pierre Omidyar, the original and biggest Never-Trumper.  Omidyar’s relentless “fake right” (AKA Globalist) attacks on President Trump are well documented by Julie Kelly, who wrote:

“Among Omidyar’s shrewdest moves was to co-opt a number of outcast Republicans who were bitter that Trump won the presidential election over their strong objections. This list includes once-influential Republican officials and lawmakers, as well as conservative opinion-makers and consultants.  Since Trump’s surprise election, they have aided the Left in attempting to drive Trump from office.”

In fact, as recently as September of 2020, Braynard was the Senior Advisor and data guru” for Take Back Our Republic (TBOR,) a “fake-right” group that has received $2,185,000 since 2015 from Omidyar via Democracy Fund. 

Braynard fails to mention his Omidyar connection on the LAA website or in his court-submitted report on election fraud.  He also neglects to mention it on his LinkedIn profile that indicates he was President of the Braynard group at the time he worked for TBOR.  Why would a dedicated conservative and Trump supporter be this connected to Omidyar, President Trump’s biggest nemesis? 

It is possible that the Braynard Group contracted with TBOR.  If so, does the Braynard Group have a contract with LAA?  Is LAA, like TBOR, Omidyar-funded?  At a time when legitimate groups like the Voter Integrity Project are under-funded, LAA surpassed its $590,000 goal, raising $675,437 in less than three months. 

Braynard’s ties to Omidyar do not end with TBOR.  Braynard was a senior redistricting and election administration analyst at Election Data Services.  Election Data Services works closely with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) on redistricting.  Omidyar, via Democracy Fund, granted $770,000 to the NCSL redistricting program between 2017 and 2020.

Additionally, LAAs National Field Director is Caroline Craze. 

Like Braynard, Craze was also employed at Omidyar’s TBOR where she was a Data Coordinator.   Her LinkedIn profile indicates that for the entire month of March she was working for both LAA and TBOR. 

Prior to TBOR, Craze interned at SteadyApp, a temporary/part-time employment service in which Omidyar Network, Flourish and Propel (Omidyar investments) were key investors. 

If the numerous connections between LAA and Omidyar are simply coincidental, why is Braynard hiding them?  Is Omidyar running the LAA show?  Given Omidyar’s relentless attacks on President Trump and Trump supporters, conservatives may want to ponder that question before completing LAA’s contact form that requires a full name, phone number and email address. 

Perhaps a name change is in order – from “Look Ahead America” to “Look Out America.”

  1. We’re glad that somebody finally exposed how Matt Braynard misappropriated our name (Voter Integrity Project) for his own profiteering. We’ve been slogging along for more than a decade, inaccurately branded as a GOP shill group. Irony of ironies is that the GOP establishment has tried over and over to co-opt, sabotage, or mimic us to a distracted public. Mr. Braynard succeeded at the former by leveraging his (brief) Trump connection and boasting of his sophomoric research . . . and the public ate it up.
    You are the first to recognize his abuse of our work and the movement we helped launch.
    Thank you!

    1. You’re welcome, and thank YOU. The Voter Integrity Project is one of the very few groups that’s remained true to it’s original mission: election integrity for ALL. Your observation of how the “establishment” operates, i.e. “co-opt, sabotage, or mimic” is accurate, and I wish more groups had this level of understanding (and ethics.) I don’t need to tell you that the “establishment” is dedicating a ton of resources in NC to keep their system intact.
      Fortunately, thanks to the Voter Integriy Project, the people of NC have one of the best election integrity groups in the country to rely on for truthful information and guidance. Thank you, and keep fighting the good fight.

  2. Braynard never called any of his groups Honest Elections Project (HEP). This fact is embarrassingly easy to check. HEP is a different group and its executive director is Jason Snead. I am interested in the connections you are claiming but making such a glaring mistake damages your own credibility, not Braynard’s.

    1. Hi, Dina. I recall hearing the names used interchangeably, but you are correct that there is an Honest Elections Project run by Jason Snead. In the interests of accuracy, I removed the statement in question and appreciate you drawing it to my attention. That being said, the accuracy of the Omidyar connections are clearly illustrated – not only regarding Braynard but also regarding staff at Look Ahead America.

  3. I must say, as very much as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a good grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so significantly. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your personal thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

    1. Ahahahhaa….sorry, your comment makes no sense at all.

      How exactly is the author supposed to “include the readers”? The author is introducing new information, how exactly is he/she supposed to “think about what others may have to say instead of going on gut reaction to the topic.”

      If the commenter actually wanted to be constructive (and make any sense), he might have included a suggestion or two outlining and clarifying his thoughts (re: “Perhaps, you should think about this from far more than 1 angle.)

      Then there’s this criticism. “Think about adjusting your personal thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.” What the….what does that even mean?

      This “word salad” criticism is beyond confusing.

      My guess is the author touched a nerve…excellent.

  4. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your website,
    how could i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal.

  5. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show
    up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway,
    just wanted to say fantastic blog!

    1. Thank you, Dustin. Comments don’t show up until I approve them. Otherwise, you’d be seeing a lot of promotions for Ivermectin 😮

      I don’t see your longer comment here, and I apologize for that – I’m not sure what happened
      .
