Robert Mercer, 70, is a computer programmer by training who is the co-chief executive officer of Renaissance Technologies in East Setauket, New York. The hedge-fund firm uses computers to spot patterns in financial markets that wouldn't be obvious to human traders, and has generated one of the best investing records in history.

He got involved in major political spending in 2010, buying ads supporting a New York gubernatorial candidate by highlighting his opposition to the so-called "Ground Zero mosque." Since then, he's become one of the country's biggest Republican givers, with a preference for anti-establishment candidates and Tea Party favorites. One of his most long-standing beneficiaries is a chemist and sometime congressional candidate who is collecting thousands of vials of human urine in freezers in rural Oregon for medical research.

Mercer's ties to Bannon date to at least to 2011, when Bannon's conservative Breitbart News network was struggling financially, and Mercer made a $10 million equity investment, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. The next year, Bannon founded an organization called the Government Accountability Institute to research cronyism in Washington, and Mercer's family foundation became a major supporter.

The group produced a book, Clinton Cash, last year highlighting conflicts of interest between the Clintons' government service and their family foundation's courting of foreign donors. This year, Bannon and Rebekah Mercer turned the book into an hour-long documentary. Robert Mercer sent his 203-foot yacht, Sea Owl, to the premier of the film at Cannes.

follow the Money folks. The Donald has the status quo running scared


I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Trump is a Goldman shareholder?

The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.
