Self-made politician George Soros is once again preparing his various organizations for battle. He is in charge of Open Society Foundations. This is Soros’ organization that he utilizes to support various liberal and democratic causes all over the world.
As of March of 2017 Soros has been fighting against the Hungarian government to keep his Central European University from being closed down in Budapest. Now, he is taking on various organizations that are trying to push an Article V Convention.
Soros does not like the fact that states preparing for an Article V Convention meeting. He is for the Constitution but not for anyone giving more power back to the federal government through this living document.
An open society is a very important aspect of modern life. Many people might not realize this; a society must have minimal government control to enjoy their liberties and freedoms. Without these liberties being in place, people will not be able to live out their dreams to fullest.
Soros knows that if any government makes changes to the legislature that protects its citizen; they could cripple people’s lives and society in general. Soros sees the current Trump administration as a government entity that is capable of taking this kind of action through the use of the Article V Convention. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.
In case you did not know, an Article V Convention is designed to allow the Constitution to be altered through amendments. Normally, states carry out this process. However, Congress also has the ability to take this action if at least 2/3’s of its members agrees to this process. Soros knows how dangerous this could be for the American people.
Soros’s organizations such as Common Cause Texas, West Virginia Center, The Brennan Center for Justice and the Center for Media Center for Democracy have all spoken out against Article V Convention action. These organizations are funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
George Soros only provides support to groups that back up his philosophies and way of life. While he might not absolutely agree with every organization that he supports; he realizes how important it is to help people to maintain their liberties within society.
Soros does not want the government to overreach its power. He knows that leaders like President Donald Trump could easily take advantage of this power and use it for the wrong purpose. That is the last thing that Soros wants for American citizens or citizens within the global community. Read more story at NYTimes.com about George Soros.

In the world of business it can be more difficult than one might initially think to find executives that have strong leadership skills and a deep understanding of the inner workings of the businesses they lead. It can be even harder to find leaders who have a strong grasp on the technical disciplines that make the services they provide to their clients possible.
Fortunately for the financial services company Capital Group, the organization was able to find all three in its recently appointed Chairman Timothy Armour. In 2015 Armour was appointed to the mission-critical position of the chairmanship of Capital Group by the company’s Board of Directors. Armour’s appointment saw him joining other leaders of the corporation like Robert Lovelace and Phil Toledo, who both serve as Presidents of divisions within the company to make important decisions about how the organization will operate in the future and how it will fine-tune its general business strategy. Armour was proceeded in his new position by the late Jim Rothenberg. James Rothenberg’s passing prompted the company to appoint a new chairman to build upon the legacy that Rothenberg had begun at Capital Group. Upon the announcement of his appointment Armour shared a statement that noted that Rothenberg’s legacy at the firm had been one of “purposeful” leadership that consistently endeavored to prioritize what was best for the company’s employees, clients and investors.
Arguably Armour was uniquely qualified to lead Capital Group. Armour had been in the field of investment management and financial services for 32 years in the time proceeding his appointment to his new position. His decades of experience very likely precipitated a depth of expertise that was necessary for the next leader of Capital Group to have. It also demonstrated a profound appreciation for the financial services industry. What also set Tim Armour apart as a candidate for a senior leadership position at the firm was the fact that he had spent the entirety of his career with the company.
Armour set an example for any aspiring investment management professional by starting out as an associate and rising through the ranks of Capital Group to a role that would allow him to make important decisions for the company’s future. During his long career with Capital Group Armour spent time working as an equity investment analyst.
