A coalition of eight left-wing groups funded by “dark money” and also by international speculator George Soros, launched a major campaign to demolish the judicial structure put together by former President Donald Trump.
Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino said the coalition is “a coordinated effort by left-wing dark money groups to convert the Supreme Court into a rubber stamp for their radical policy agendas,” according to The Washington Free Beacon Feb. 3.
The coalition, called Unrig the Courts, will push to add justices to the Supreme Court, limit the terms of its justices, who now serve for life, and expand the lower courts in addition to imposing “improved ethics and transparency requirements.”
One of the best-known groups among them is Demand Justice, dedicated to left-wing advocacy. It was created in 2018 and is led by Brian Fallon, former press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 campaign.
Left-wing advocacy group Demand Justice
This group is funded by anonymous donors, and backed by Arabella Advisors—an intricate dark money network containing dozens of liberal groups and projects.
According to The Beacon, the network acts as an articulator for Democratic donors and has provided $1.6 billion to liberal entities in recent years.
The group, heavily funded by billionaire George Soros, has come to light according to disclosed grants.
Another of Soros’s Washington-based advocacy entities said it had sent $2.5 million to Demand Justice for general support between April 1 and June 30, 2018, according to a review of its grants.
Additionally, Fallon attended a secret meeting of the Democracy Alliance donor network, which was co-founded by Soros, to introduce the group in 2018.
President Trump’s legacy—the courts
Former President Trump appointed 226 federal judges including three Supreme Court justices during his tenure, which has generates a lot of criticism among Democrats.
One of the missions of billionaire speculator George Soros is to fund progressive prosecutors, who in the course of their duties fight for the criminal, according to former prosecutor and senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, Cully Stimson.
“What they ran on and what they practice is a wholesale abrogation of their duties, taking whole classes of crimes and reclassifying them as not-crimes. Where they have taken office, there’s been an institutional breakdown of civic and professional norms,” Stimson noted, according to the Aug. 20 Washington Times.
Likewise, political activist Candace Owens addressed the issue in one of her tweets. “As he did with antifa, Democrat George Soros has these thugs on the payroll,” Owens wrote referring to the violent groups that caused riots in Minneapolis and who, as it later became known, were not from there.
“He is funding the mayhem through his Open Society Foundation,” Owens said.
