Woke bank saved by Biden's intervention

Published in Blog on March 16, 2023 by Catie Robertson

President Biden promised to bail out customers at Silicon Valley Bank early this week to restore faith in the American banking system; as if the government injecting taxpayer dollars into any institution is a signal of stability.

A closer look into the SVB’s financial failure should raise even more concerns, however, about the system the federal government is pouring a massive $25 billion dollars into to insure. 

SVB, as evidenced by its spending record, hates America. Yet it's now propped up by taxpayer dollars.

A quick glance at the bank’s donation pledges should raise alarm for the taxpayers whose dollars are being poured out.

In the summer of 2020, SVB pledged to donate a whopping $74 million to Black Lives Matter, according to the Post Millennial. Taking this social contagion to heart, their 2021 Proxy statement called to “end systemic racism and social inequalities.” 

Additionally, like most other companies in corporate America, as well as within the U.S. government, a tremendous amount of money was spent on diversity initiatives. 

$1.2 million was spent to support diverse emerging talent. An additional $50 million was pledged “with a focus on women, Black and Latinx individuals” in its 2021 diversity and inclusion programs and partnerships.

If this diversity pandering was not enough, by the year 2027, SVB pledged to invest $5 billion in “loans, investments and other financing to support sustainability efforts.” 

Looks like dollar bills are not the only green investment this bank is planning to make. 

All of this extraordinary spending is being rewarded by the federal government with security for its customers. 

What is the incentive for other banks to continue business as usual, limiting risky decisions, when they now have a guarantee that Big Brother will come save them in a pinch?

But, of course, this is all part of the lie the government wants its citizens to believe. Because when we are dependent, the government can snatch more power for itself, until there is not an ounce of self-governance left.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
