Elizabeth Pipko: We’re going to be the Super PAC for Jewish-Americans
Elizabeth Pipko: We’re going to be the Super PAC for Jewish-Americans 150 150 Exodus Movement

The Exodus Movement is now officially considered a political action committee (PAC). The group, which launched in March of this year, is determined to make an impact on Jewish-Americans not only for the Nov. 5 elections (mostly for local candidates), but also for the 2020 presidential election.

Elizabeth Pipko, who started the movement, had a vision for young Jewish voters given the rise in anti-Semitism within left-wing politics. Although polls show U.S. Jews are more worried about anti-Semitism on the far right, she is determined to make them understand the dangers from the Left.

In September, the Exodus Movement held a major event in New York City with Lara Trump and other Republican leaders. Pipko recently sat down to speak with World Israel News about what the future holds for her group as a PAC.

Q: What has grown within the organization thus far?

Pipko: “The most important thing is we’re now a PAC. A lot of things start as a movement, but I wanted something that can make a tangible difference in 2020. It’s going to outlast 2020. It’s not just about Donald Trump, but it’s about 2024 and beyond. It’s going to stay on for a long time.”

Q: What can you do to sustain the Exodus Movement for years to come?

Pipko: “The whole point is to get the message across. We have the support of many people and they know they can turn to us. We’re going to be the Super PAC for Jewish-Americans.

“It takes a lot of fundraising efforts. It’s about showing people we know what to do and that we’re putting money in the right places. We’re investing in the races we know we can affect and change. We’re making sure Jewish-Americans get the support that they need, and not just emotionally but politically.”

Q: For those who are confused about what a PAC is, what does the money you spend go to?

Pipko: “A lot of people don’t know what goes on politically behind the scenes. I was on the data team with the Trump campaign in 2016, so that opened my eyes. There’s a lot of data that the parties have with all of these people and the races going on.”

“We look at the data, and we determine where to put our money and what our political team needs to do. We put the money into people we want to win, events or ads. It’s about putting money into digital ads, where we need to make sure they target people who we know can affect an election. It’s not about being the group that puts out the most TV ads. It’s about the ads that target the right races that are winnable.”

The Exodus Movement Holds First Event As A PAC
The Exodus Movement Holds First Event As A PAC 150 150 Exodus Movement

This past Thursday night, The Exodus Movement, an organization focused on raising awareness of the increasing anti-Semitism of the far Left, held an event in Manhattan. It was the group’s first event since the addition of its PAC branch last month.

The event was hosted by Elizabeth Pipko, founder of The Exodus Movement, as well as Andrea Catsamatidis, who was just recently re-elected as the chairwoman of the Manhattan Republican Party.

“The fact that Thursday’s event was such a success and members of the Jewish community and supporters of Israel turned out in such force to support the Exodus Movement is so encouraging and exciting. People are finally waking up to the anti-Semitism and hatred coming from the Left and standing up for Jewish values and our great ally Israel. I was extremely proud to be a part of the event and to stand with my Jewish friends,” stated Catsamatidis.

Also in attendance was special guest Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of President Donald Trump and senior advisor to Trump’s 2020 campaign. In her speech, she addressed all of the actions the president has taken to show his support for Israel — including moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. She also spoke about how the Democratic Party has turned its back on Israel and has welcomed blatant anti-Semites into its ranks.

When The Exodus Movement launched earlier this year, Elizabeth Pipko had a vision for young Jewish voters with the rising increase of anti-Semitism within left-wing politics.

Less than seven months after the movement launched, Pipko has grown it exponentially and has been featured in dozens of news outlets as she makes her case to Jewish voters prior to the November 3, 2020 presidential elections.

Last Thursday evening, The Exodus Movement held its first major event, with Pipko leading the way. In front of a large crowd, Pipko was joined by President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump.

The 36-year-old Trump, adorned in a bright red dress, took to the stage, applauding with enthusiasm for the movement and what it could mean heading into the election season. She spoke about anti-Semitism on the left, as well as the fact that after so many previous presidents made promises they couldn’t keep, President Trump promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem and immediately did exactly that.

“Israel and the Jewish people have never had a better friend in the White House than Donald Trump,” Pipko said at the event.

Among the guests were dozens of college students, as well as Andrea Catsamatidis, chairwoman of the Manhattan Republican Party.

The Exodus Movement recently announced the addition of a political action committee (PAC). The focus of the group will now move toward becoming politically involved in the local, congressional and national elections.

Elizabeth Pipko To ‘Post’: Jewish Democrats Are Walking Away From Party
Elizabeth Pipko To ‘Post’: Jewish Democrats Are Walking Away From Party 150 150 Exodus Movement

American Jews are turning their backs on the Democratic Party, claims Exodus Movement founder Elizabeth Pipko.

Speaking with The Jerusalem Post, the New York-born author, former athlete and model, 24, said that she feels many life-long Democratic Party voters are questioning their loyalty to the party and joining what she calls the sweeping #WalkAway wave, an American movement to abandon liberalism.

“The biggest trigger for people is the obvious disregard that many on the left have recently shown for antisemitic statements and actions,” Pipko said, alarming rhetoric that “only a few years ago would have been immediately condemned.”

Take for example recent statements made by Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Ocasio Cortez and Rashida Tlaib against Israel and in favor of boycotting the Jewish state, she said.

“The BDS movement is a blatant attempt to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist,” Pipko said. “There is no place for any US elected officials to support a movement that stands against one of our closest allies and one of the freest countries in the world.”

At one point in the past, the Democrats were “not only incredibly supportive of Israel but also of Jewish people and their rights here in the United States,” she explained. But that is no longer the case, in her estimation.

“Supporting today’s Democratic party just because of its values of many years ago does not make sense,” Pipko continued. “The Democrats have changed and so should our support for them.”

Pipko published her first book at 16. As a model, she starred in international campaigns and was featured in household name magazines, including appearing on the “Social Media Stars As Authors” panel at Book Expo America. This year, she won the “Fearless Female Award” from the Batsheva organization.

It was her volunteering on Trump’s 2016 election campaign that brought to the forefront her strong convictions and she said paved the path to a political vocation.

“Trump inspired me to think for myself and not let politicians tell me what I should or shouldn’t believe in,” Pipko said. “More importantly, he supported Israel in a way I had badly hoped that a candidate would.”

Pipko went on to found the Exodus Movement (originally named Jexodus). Now, three years after joining Trump’s campaign, first as a volunteer and later as a staff member, she is regularly interviewed by Fox News and has been quoted repeatedly by the president.

In March, she appeared on Fox & Friends where she described Trump as “the best friend Jewish Americans could ask for.”

Trump responded with a tweet in which he quoted Pipko saying “Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worse & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people. Elizabeth Pipko.”

Elizabeth Pipko, founder of The Exodus Movement, spoke exclusively with Fox News following the president’s comments suggesting that Jewish Americans, who vote for Democrats show a lack of knowledge or “great disloyalty” to Israel.

“Look, the Democrats have shown with their words and actions over the last several years that they are taking Jews and their support totally for granted. President Trump was discussing Jewish Americans and their loyalty to themselves, their faith, and everything that we have gone through. It’s hard to imagine supporting the left when they have turned so far against us,” said Pipko.

Pipko is a former Trump 2016 campaign staffer, who made headlines earlier this year when she announced her support for President Trump, and co-founded Jexodus — now known as The Exodus Movement. According to their website, The Exodus Movement is comprised of “proud Jewish Americans who reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left.”

“[The Exodus Movement is] hoping to inspire Jews, and I think all people actually, to vote with their conscience and their beliefs and not with any fears whatsoever, and I think the further the Democrats shift to the left, the harder it is for any religious person to align with them,” Pipko said in an earlier Fox News interview.

On Tuesday, Trump spoke with reporters in the Oval Office about his feud with Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu barred the Muslim congresswomen from entering the country.

“I think any Jewish people that votes for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” Trump said.

The president also accused Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar of being anti-Semitic and argued they “hate” Israel and Jewish people.

“Where has the Democratic Party gone?” Trump said, adding, “Where have they gone — where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel?”

“At a time when anti-Semitic incidents have increased — due to the president’s emboldening of white nationalism — Trump is repeating an anti-Semitic trope,” Halie Soifer, the executive Director of Jewish Democratic Council of America, said in a statement.

But a prominent Jewish Republican group backed up Trump’s language.

The Exodus Movement Launches 527 Political Arm Ahead Of 2020
The Exodus Movement Launches 527 Political Arm Ahead Of 2020 150 150 Exodus Movement

NEW YORK, NY: Today Red Sea Rising, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit running The Exodus Movement, announces the launch of The Exodus Movement political arm via the creation of a 527 political organization. The creation of this 527 organization will allow The Exodus Movement to more aggressively target persuadable Jewish voters in key states ahead of the 2020 election.

“The creation of this 527 organization will allow The Exodus Movement to more aggressively target persuadable Jewish voters and inform them about the antisemitic drift of the Democrat party in key states ahead of the 2020 election.,” said Elizabeth Pipko, Founder and President of The Exodus Movement. “Many Jews have watched in dismay as a formerly welcoming Democratic Party has turned away from them towards anti-Semitic activists such as Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib. This new 527 organization will hold those to account who don’t support Jewish voters and the issues they care about the most.”

Elizabeth Pipko is a model and activist whose Jewish faith has greatly impacted her career trajectory and most recently, her political endeavors.

The 24-year-old native New Yorker told Fox News that her faith has always been a huge part of life and helped steer her when she first started modeling at 17 years old.

“Growing up I always knew that [religion] was going to guide me,” she said. “In anything that I do, I know I go with God.”

Having the approval of her parents has also been a guiding force. Pipko says there’s not a photo she’s taken that wasn’t run by her parents first.

“People were always confused that on a Thursday I could shoot a swimwear campaign and that on Friday night I could be in synagogue,” she admitted. “I’m super proud of it.”

She does have her limits though. Pipko draws the line at nude shoots or getting too intimate with another man. She married her husband in December 2018 whom she met while working on President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Since then, Pipko has put her modeling career on hold for two reasons: 1. After coming out as a Trump supporter, she said those in the modeling industry “distanced themselves” from her and 2. She founded “The Exodus Movement” in March 2019.

“The [response from the] modeling industry was exactly what I expected. A lot of the photographers and people that I had grown super close with kind of blocked me on social media and distanced themselves,” she previously told Fox News in April.

Jewish-American voters historically vote overwhelmingly in favor of the Democratic Party, usually in the 70 to 80 percent range. Elizabeth Pipko is looking to change that.

The self-styled model and figure skater is now the face of the Exodus Movement, a group that started as “Jexodus” in March to spread a right-wing message in an attempt to sway Jewish voters towards voting red in the 2020 election.

In conversation with The Times of Israel, Pipko says that people are often stymied by her, asking if she’s been brainwashed and why she would support US President Donald Trump so staunchly. At a time when Jewish voters are disappointed in the Republican response to increasing reports of anti-Semitism, the Exodus Movement is not an easy sell.

A recent poll claims that an unprecedented number of Jewish voters feel less secure with Trump at the helm, with 59% of Jews saying they blame the Commander-in-Chief for the country’s reported rise in anti-Semitism. Further complicating things for conservatives looking to capture the Jewish vote, the survey also found that issues concerning Israel were the lowest priority among Jewish voters in 2020.
