Various progressive groups agreed to give Democratic candidate Joe Biden a report with 100 resumés of people on the left, largely linked to billionaires George Soros and Charles Koch, who could be candidates to join Joe Biden’s team. This could further deepen the radical left policies they seek to impose.
In an energetic effort to shape a more progressive foreign policy, a coalition of leftist groups on Friday, Dec. 18, handed over a detailed list of 100 candidates who they recommended to Biden for top positions in case justice fails to act properly against election fraud and Biden eventually takes office.
Leftist recommendations for Joe Biden
Dozens of groups contributed to the list, including the Progressive Change Institute, the Revolving Door Project, Friends of the Earth U.S., the Center for Economic and Policy Research, Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, and the Arab American Institute.
The controversial list includes a dozen academics from the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, the Charles Koch and George Soros-funded think tank, among others.
In addition to the Quincy Institute and the Open Society Foundation, the list includes several officials from the Iranian-American National Council, which has long pressed for the United States to normalize relations with Iran. The group has been accused of acting as a foreign agent.
Also included among the nominees is a former Human Rights Watch official, Sarah Leah Whitson, who solicited donations from Saudi Arabia promising to attack pro-Israel groups.
The list is based primarily on academics from leftist groups who claim to be aligned against the war and fighting for equal rights.
65% are women or people of color for Biden’s team
About 65% are women or people of color, said Yasmine Taeb, senior researcher at the Progressive Center for International Policy and one of the initiators of the report.
Yaeb said this is only the first comprehensive and coordinated effort by the left to directly influence Joe Biden’s decisions, with the intention of appointing progressives to accompany him in his work on national security and foreign policy.
The list also serves as a form of rejection of the predominantly center-left foreign policy officials that Joe Biden has so far elected.
Eric Edelman, who served as assistant secretary of defense for policy in the George W. Bush administration, said of the list, “While it is difficult to generalize about a list of 100 people, this, with some notable exceptions, reads like a directory of people who are part of the leftist network funded by Koch-Soros.
And then there’s BLM
This demand for Biden and his campaign is in addition to the demands made by the other progressive sector allied to the Democrats, Black Lives Matter (BLM). Arguing that “black people won this election,” the co-founder of the BLM Marxist movement, Patrisse Cullors, wrote a letter in November to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris, to “begin the immediate work of black liberation.”
Neither Biden nor his inner circle has issued any comment on these kinds of claims. But since his closeness to the extreme left has led to poor results in the November election, it is expected that until after the January election he will not issue any comments or concrete actions that link him so evidently to the left.
