Anti-Article V billionaire George Soros "looms large" on Biden's transition team

Anti-Article V billionaire and political operative George Soros is looming large over Joe Biden's transition team, according to a report from the Washington Free Beacon.

Soros and his network of leftist organizations launched a campaign in 2017 to end the Convention of States movement to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States. Knowing a Convention of States could de-centralize power away from Washington, Soros and his cronies were dead-set on maintaining their stranglehold over politics in the nation's capital.

Now, Soros has used his billions to place many of his former employees on Biden's transition team. According to the Free Beacon:

Sarah Cross, an advocacy director at Soros's Open Society Foundations, received a seat on Biden's State Department transition team. Michael Pan, a special adviser in the executive office of the Open Society Foundations, will join the United States Mission to the United Nations team. Diane Thompson, who is listed as "self-employed" and a member of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau team, is a current Leadership in Government Fellow at the Open Society Foundations.

Other members of Biden's transition team work for groups that receive heavy funding from the billionaire. Sharon Burke and Viv Graubard, both at the New America think tank, will join Biden's Department of Defense and Department of Labor teams. Soros's Open Society Foundations gave New America more than $1 million last year, according to the group's disclosures. Soros's son, Jonathan, sits on New America's board emeriti.

Biden's team also includes six employees from John Podesta's Center for American Progress who are sprinkled across the Treasury, Federal Reserve, Department of Labor, Department of the Interior, National Security Council, and Office of the United States Trade Representative. Soros's most recent tax forms show that nonprofits in his sprawling network gave more than $1 million to Podesta's group in 2018.

Soros and other billionaires hate the idea of an Article V Convention of States because they know that if power is spread across all 50 states, no amount of money will be able to buy enough politicians and votes to re-make our country. They moved against Convention of States patriots in 2017, but Mark Levin and others responded to their attacks with devastating attacks of their own.

Today, the fight against big-money political operatives continues as states across the country consider de-centralizing power with an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government.

Fifteen states have called for such a Convention, and millions of Americans have voiced their support. Will you join us? Sign the petition below!

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
