End Citizens United PAC Trying to Change the Constitution

The one thing that was different about the just concluded elections was the level of involvement of the political action committees. Groups that had not been heard of in years came out of the woodwork to support their candidates of choice, and a lot of money went into the campaigns. End Citizens United was one of the PACs that were deeply involved in the campaigns. By the time the campaigns were heating up in 2015, they had already raised $2 million, and before the cycle ended, they had raised more than $30 million, which they used to support the candidates and initiatives of their choice.

Well, not the campaigns are behind us, and the winner has taken office, but the group is not about to stop their advocacy, they have indicated that their next frontier is changing an amendment that was made to the constitution in 2010, which led to super PACs.

 

The decision that was made in 2010 has been interfering a lot with the politics of the day by introducing a lot of dark money to the process. The only way they can effect change in the sector is by collecting more than 1 million signatures and presenting them to the Supreme Court. So Far, they have managed to collect 300,000 signatures. The group has made a liaison with the group that was campaigning for Hillary and is known as ready for Hillary to try to get more signatures. This group has more than 4 million members, and if they get signatures from them, they will manage to move the motion.

 

Many other PACs were part of the campaigns, but according to Richard Carbo, his group is interested in more than just getting their candidates in office. The fact that they were looking for changes that would end dirty money politics set them apart from all the other groups. He stated that he understood the complexity of the goal that they had set for themselves, especially since the last amendment that has been made to the constitution was in 1992, but he was confident they would make it.

 

On the other hand, Rick Hasen was looking at the group’s ambition with a dose of reality. He said that even if the group raised $100 million, getting an audience from the Supreme Court would not be that easy. He, however, added that what the court was doing in letting people know about the processes carried out by the Supreme Court was commendable.

 

The PAC is based in DC and has a staff of only five members. The group may seem to have an uphill task in getting an audience from the Supreme Court, but there is a chance that they could get this amendment.

 

Human Rights Champion George Soros Thinks Trump Is A Con Man

The world was stunned when Donald Trump was elected president. No one expected Trump to win, but he did, and the world is still shaking its fists in disbelief. Men like Democratic donor and human rights champion, George Soros are doing something about the Trump win. George Soros got his Democratic donor Alliance together in Washington recently, and they formed a plan to keep Trump in line over the next four years. Trump has the support of a wide range of people, so Soros thinks Trump will divide the country, not unify it.

George Soros is the billionaire hedge fund investor that spends billions of dollars promoting the open society concept around the world. Hillary Clinton shared some of the same opinions as Mr. Soros, so he donated more than $10 million to her campaign. He also donated another $10 million to other Democratic candidates, according to a recent article in politico.com. Politico.com also reported that Soros is not a Trump supporter, and will never be one, even though the Hungarian-born philanthropist invested in Trump’s Chicago hotel a few years ago.

Soros may have given Trump money, but he’s not giving him any credit for his ability to lead the country. At the Davos Summit, Soros had a lot to say about Trump. Trump is a fake, and he will fail, according to Soros on Snopes. Soros also said Trump is an imposter that is contradictory and lacks character. And Soros said it’s impossible to predict how Trump is going to act because Trump doesn’t know how’s he’s going to act until he does. Mr. Soros believes there is no economic sense in starting a trade war with countries like China and Mexico. The United States economy on opensocietyfoundations.org needs imports from those countries, and other countries, to offset inflation and to keep the consumer-driven economy stable.

There is little doubt. Soros will continue to expose Trump as a modern day dictator that promotes divisiveness. Anyone that disagrees with Trump run the risk of being called out and chastised by him.

The stock market hit an all-time high after the election, but Soros thinks the rally is not going to last. The uncertainty that is part of Trump’s game plan will begin to have an impact on the stock market on nytimes.com. Soros sees little good coming to the United States during the Trump years. The chaos that surrounds Trump will have an impact on the global economy, and the threat of conflicts with other nations his higher than it has been in more than 50 years.

Some people say George Soros is upset because he lost money when Trump was elected, but that’s not the reason Soros is speaking out. Mr. Soros is used to spending and losing money. That’s the kind of business he is in. George is speaking out because he is concerned about the economic and social repercussions that he foresees over the next three or four years.

The world is a connected economic machine, and Trump may be the monkey-wrench that disrupts that machine.
