Soros's Progressive Constitution

The man is a menace to our Constitution.
A dangerous man who plans on being a game changer in the American way of life.
A man with a lot of money to do so.
And at least three White House advisers and officials, including President Obama's regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, are like rats following the pied piper, but in this instance leading the rats straight to our Constitution.

This reported on the World Daily Net.

There is an effort, funded by billionaire George Soros, to push for a new, "progressive" U.S. Constitution.

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.

-Sought to change the nature and "interpretation" of the Constitution. Does this tactic sound familiar to you? 
Most progressive try to micro interpret the constitution. Thats why you should pay close attention when talking to a liberal about the constitution and its' exact wording.-

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, Sunsteinwrote a blog entryin 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."

Word of advise. Watch and follow what Soros is trying to do to our country.

He's a dangerous man with a lot of money!

Mark, you repeated a section twice.

and here's Sunsteins work at the conference or at least in the Book."The Minimalist Constitution"

Yes, there is a book about the conference and even a Blog containing video about it.

Didn't see his name under any of the video sections but perhaps i missed them. You could always look up criticisms of his piece on the net and see for yourself.

Thanks Joe, correct the double take.

And lastly, you're not going to 'find' his name, he is a contributor.
He funds some, if not all, of this.
Just Google 'American Constitution Society Soros' and you'll see the connection.

And if you go to you'll even see Holder (on the right) with the caption "Registration for the ACS 10th Anniversary National Convention is now open. Attorney General Eric Holder will speak at the opening gala banquet."

I meant Sunstein, not Soro's. I didn't find him in the video collection or the speaking section, but i might have missed him.
