At Least 3 White House Advisors Linked To Soros Plot to Push ‘Progressive’ Bill of Rights

Anyone surprised about that?

I’m surprised that only three of them have been outed.  You just know there are hundreds more.  They’re like cockroaches; for every one of them that you see, there’s at least a hundred more hiding in the walls:

George Soros assault on U.S. Constitution
See which White House officials involved in rewriting nation’s founding document

By Aaron KleinWorldNetDaily

At least three White House advisers and officials, including President Obama’s regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, have ties to an effort funded by billionaire George Soros to push for a new, “progressive” U.S. Constitution.

WND first reported last week that Sunstein’s wife, Samantha Power, has been a champion of a Soros-funded doctrine, entitled “responsibility to protect,” which was used by Obama to justify engaging in an international military alliance to bomb Libya. As the National Security Council special adviser to Obama on human rights, Power reportedly influenced Obama in his decision.

Now it has emerged that Sunstein has maintained extensive ties to Soros’ funding, particularly with regard to a movement that openly seeks to create a “progressive” consensus as to what the U.S. Constitution should provide for by the year 2020.

Also, Attorney General Eric Holder sat on the board of a Soros-funded group pushing the same “progressive” constitution.

WND has learned that in April 2005, Sunstein opened up a conference at Yale Law School entitled, “The Constitution in 2020,” which sought to change the nature and interpretation of the Constitution by that year.

That event was sponsored by Soros’ Open Society Institute as well as by the Center for American Progress, which is led by John Podesta, who served as co-chair of Obama’s presidential transition team. Podesta’s Center is said to be highly influential in helping to craft White House policy.

The Yale event on the Constitution was also sponsored by the American Constitution Society, or ACS, which has been described as a group meant to counter the work of the Federalist Society, which has been at the forefront of the push for a more conservative judiciary since its launch in 1982.

The ACS is the main organization behind the movement to ensure a more “progressive” constitution, having received more that $2,201,500 from Soros’ Open Society since 2002.

Attorney General Holder served on the ACS board of directors.

Sunstein has spoken at numerous ACS events. For example, he was a speaker at a November 3, 2003 symposium by the American Constitution Society of the University of Chicago School of Law, where Sunstein was a professor.

But it was the 2005 Yale event led in part by Sunstein that has been described as jumpstarting the movement for a “progressive” constitution.

Jeffrey Rosen, a law professor at George Washington University, wrote at the New York Times Magazine in a 2009 piece about so-called liberal justice: “If this new understanding of legal liberalism can be traced back to a single moment, it was in April 2005, when the American Constitution Society and other progressive groups sponsored a conference at Yale Law School called ‘The Constitution in 2020.'”

New ‘Bill of Rights’

The Constitution 2020 movement has plotted a strategy for how liberal lawyers and judges might bring such a constitutional regime into being.

Just before his appearance at the Yale conference, Sunstein wrote a blog entry in which he explained he “will be urging that it is important to resist, on democratic grounds, the idea that the document should be interpreted to reflect the view of the extreme right-wing of the Republican Party.”

Sunstein has also been pushing for a new socialist-style U.S. bill of rights that, among other things, would constitutionally require the government to offer each citizen a “useful” job in the farms or industries of the nation.

According to Sunstein’s new bill of rights, the U.S. government can also intercede to ensure every farmer can sell his product for a good return while the government is granted power to act against “unfair competition” and monopolies in business.

All this and more is contained in Sunstein’s 2004 book, “The Second Bill of Rights: FDR’S Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever.”

In the work, Sunstein advanced the radical notion that welfare rights, including some controversial inceptions, be granted by the state. His inspiration for a new bill of rights came from President Roosevelt’s 1944 proposal of a different, new set of rights.

In his book, Sunstein laid out what he wants to become the new bill of rights, which he calls the Second Bill of Rights:

His mandates include the following:

  • The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;
  • The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;
  • The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return that will give him and his family a decent living;
  • The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;
  • The right of every family to a decent home;
  • The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;
  • The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident and unemployment;
  • The right to a good education.

On one page in his book, Sunstein claims he is “not seriously arguing” his bill of rights be “encompassed by anything in the Constitution,” but on the next page he states that “if the nation becomes committed to certain rights, they may migrate into the Constitution itself.”

Later in the book, Sunstein argues that “at a minimum, the second bill should be seen as part and parcel of America’s constitutive commitments.”

    It doesn’t shock me to learn of this. Look at who influences Obama – Powers, Sunstein, Podesta. 2012 can’t be here soon enough.

  2. Leatherneck Says:

    More Treason from the CFR controlled government. The only thing these Marxists understand is a firing squad at dawn for their treason. Put it on pay-pe-view to pay for the debt.

    That is how I feel. They hate this country, so why can’t I hate them back?

  3. Big Frank Says:

    Comrade Sunstein’s so-called ‘Second Bill Of Rights’ IMHO is the false Utopian promise and pipe dream that all of the Leftists, Marxists Socialists, and Communists long for. The only problem is that the government and only the government, not the individual will decide what is adequate, and whom is entitled to what, in a system similar to the ‘workers paradise’ of the once glorious ‘Soviet Union’ and it’s affiliated countries. As I have stated before a government that can give you every thing can just as easily take it away

    The only reason progressives have been able to continue doing what they are doing is that they have been able to steal other peoples money to fund their crusade. Take away the money and they become just like any other progressive city struggling to stay afloat. The progs don’t produce kids, jobs, or even decent citizens. They use the rest of us for just about everything.

    Progs are the reason our society is sick and becoming sicker. If most Americans had any brains they would be outraged. Lets just go our separate ways and be done with them, that would be much easier than civil war or universal poverty and misery. I have had it with crat lawyers and their wives sticking their noses into every aspect of our lives. I hope their mobs hang them all.

    I support progressives when they shoot each other in the face.

    Eastern European progressivism, LOL. Soros is an EE, so is Bernanke, What is the origin of people like Soros/Bernanke, others, here? It turns out that is important in this fight that we are in today. Bernanke wears a beard, makes me suspicious.

    • tgusa Says:

      The reason there are anglos in EE is early on in our civilizational development our retards had to have somewhere to go as most of the others didn’t want them around holding them back. Progressive!

      • tgusa Says:

        Among our civilization we have two competing groups, the eastern European Anglo (progressive) clashing with western European Anglo culture. In the past these two different cultures of people of similar color remained separate. The development of western Anglo cultural/ethnic jokes probably didn’t come out of thin air. You will never hear anyone telling English jokes. I mean, you are standing in Venice and you all of a sudden decide that you are going to head 2 thousand miles due north for a better life. WTH?
