No Labels claims to be a non-partisan centrist organization. It describes itself as a movement for the "politically homeless." But in practice, it has supported Republicans and very conservative Democrats. This year, No Labels has spent millions to secure ballot access across the country to put the group in position to run a candidate for president in 2024.
"Is No Labels a thinly disguised effort by Wall Street and Trump supporters to deny Biden a second term?"
I'm not sure No Labels is even thinly disguised, but it seems disguised enough to keep the corporate media from pointing out that it is an obvious effort by dark money billionaires to put Trump back in the WH.
According to Rick Wilson, a resounding YES to your last sentence in your article. Wilson says---and he knows this effort and the people involved with it inside and out---that No Labels is functioning as a Trump Super PAC, contrary to what they are saying. It is run by Nancy Jacobson and Mark Penn, former Democratic fundraisers and pollsters. Bill Clinton fired Mark Penn because he thought his polling was bad, and No Labels has turned into his and his wife's revenge fantasy. Hard to believe, but listen to Wilson's interview on "The Politics Girl," and it will become crystal clear. No Labels is not what it says it is, and that is why it desperately tries to keep its donors secret. I hope AZ screws them over big time, because it couldn't happen to worse people. According to Wilson, "[Jacobson and Penn] are not good people." I believe him. No Labels is dangerous. Judd, thanks for shining the light on them. Please continue.

Delicious, to be tripped up by Arizona. Please please don’t let it succeed in siphoning votes.
Where money and power are behind the actions, DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY. Question every bit of this--Thank You, Judd!
And, DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD Joe Lieberman (Founding Chairman of "No Labels") says:
“…I want to assure President Biden, who is my former Senate colleague and longtime personal friend, that if No Labels concludes that a bipartisan Unity ticket has no chance to win and may only be a spoiler, we will stand down and not offer our ballot line to a third ticket."
Reporting like this is why I subscribe to Popular Information. This is wonderful information that we need.
I think even without assuming the intent of electing Trump specifically, we can conclude that this follows a pattern of ultra-wealthy and corporate donors doing everything possible to maintain their power and subvert the will of the people.
“What’s best for democracy is confidentiality” jumped out at me...kinda like “alternative facts”
Ever since the "Citizens United" decision, most of our nation's wealthiest individuals and corporations have been working, as quietly as possible, through our political system to establish a nice, cozy, behind-the-scenes, oligarchy for themselves, hiding behind the false faith they've promoted in "free market capitalism," while working very diligently to be sure they are in complete control of that system which they had quietly redesigned to extract as much wealth as possible from the general population while insulating themselves from any responsibility for the damage they were doing and making sure that any losses which resulted from their adventurous gambling and profit mongering would be suffered by and/or covered by the tax payers.
They've been allowed to treat our nation's population as if we were simply dirt in a massive pit mine from which they were digging the valuable ore of their own wealth, while giving the leavings of their mining processes as little care and concern as the average mining company gives their own "tailings," something to be discarded and ignored until they can skip town leaving others to deal with the toxic mess they've left behind.
"No labels" is just more of the same pig excrement. Biden and the Democrats have very slightly challenged the designs of this very large, ubiquitous, "vampire squid" oligarchy, and are threatening to gather up the equivalent of the loose change under their couch cushions, but the severe psychological dysfunctions which have caused these wealthiest individuals to pursue wealth and power above all other considerations in life, are causing them to react with the "I will not part with a single coin," attitude of "Smaug the dragon," from the Hobbit movies.
It's reassuring to see that there are some individuals willing to work to reveal this whole, malignant process metastasizing throughout our society. I can only hope others will follow this example so we can more clearly see the men behind the pretty, innocent-looking, but totally opaque curtain behind which these malevolent creeps have been trying to quietly hide.
Another example of the ultra wealthy trying to gain more control and in the end destroy our democracy!!
Please follow it closely.
Brilliant report, Judd! Follow the money!
Living exemplary proof that..
Once you have lots of money by corrupt practices,
You need to spend a portion of your ill gotten money,
To make more ill gotten money,
By utilizing corrupt, deceptive, and secretive means to keep the cycle going.
There should be laws against this kind of deceptive behavior that causes such suffering among the greater population.
Oh yeah, that's right... there are.
No Labels money backers = the real DEEP STATE.

Well done Judd! Those of us in these chats are well aware that this is a right wing cover group. They know trump is a failure and desperately need to get their candidate in to control any progress by Democrats. No matter how they try to lie about polls, they are facing demise. I look forward to watching their faces when it happens. To everyone here: PLEASE post this link everywhere you can. Talk about this! It s so important.
We definitely have a problem. Money has concentrated sufficiently now that those that want to override public good can do so with greater ease, and shame no longer has much of a deterring effect in the new digital town square, cursed by its short attention span and lack of personal connection to the parties acting shamefully. We are headed for a rocky future without a reshuffling of the deck and a re-empowerment of the middle class. No Labels is the latest sign of this debacle.
