Kamala Harris’ radical, racist remarks about Hurricane Ian, natural disasters and “giving resources based on equity” got a lot of backlash. Both the FEMA administrator and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had to assure people that everyone who needed it would have access to hurricane relief.
But unfortunately, this concept of equity — not equality — is something that runs across all aspects of the Biden Administration showing just how far left it is. Here’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen explaining that it’s the “centerpiece” of the Administration.

“The Biden-Harris administration has made racial equity a centerpiece of our economic agenda,” Yellen declared. “Advancing racial equity is not just a moral priority, it is also vital to our economic success.” Once again, it showed how Joe Biden isn’t a moderate but a stalking horse for a radical agenda.
Unfortunately, Yellen has shown in her time in office that she has no idea what is “vital to our economic success” which is why we have crushing 40-year record inflation. Even as it was starting last year, she kept claiming it would be transitory. Maybe she should have been focused on the economy rather than pushing radical leftist gobbledegook.
But on Tuesday, Yellen revealed who was on the Treasury Department’s “Committee on Racial Equity.” Two of the people on the Committee run non-profits that have gotten millions from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
On Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen unveiled the members for the agency’s Committee on Racial Equity, which will advise on how “to advance racial equity in the economy and address acute disparities for communities of color.” Felicia Wong and Lorella Praeli, two committee members, lead four nonprofits that got over $15.7 million from OSF’s network between 2016 and 2020, according to OSF’s grant database.
Wong has been named the vice chair of the Committee. She’s also the CEO of the Roosevelt Institute. Soros funded the Roosevelt Institute with $4,692,500 from 2016 to 2020.
Wong also previously worked for a massive Soros-funded network of progressive donors.
Wong “ran investment services” for the far-left Democracy Alliance, according to her bio. The Democracy Alliance was “founded” in part by Soros, and seeks to advance the “LGBTQ” movement and drive “progressive social change.”
According to the Daily Caller, she was also the head of Roosevelt Forward.
In 2019 and 2020, Roosevelt Forward accepted $425,000 from OSF’s Open Society Policy Center, which does “advocacy on domestic and international issues aimed at elevating justice and advancing a progressive U.S. foreign policy.” Those grants were to support Roosevelt Forward’s “policy advocacy on prescription drug pricing and pharmaceutical regulation” and “advocacy on potential government appointments.”
Let’s hear a little more from the woman Biden made vice-chair of this Committee.
On the other hand, Wong co-authored a paper contending that “police budgets should be reduced and for-profit prison systems must be done away with” four years before the death of George Floyd.
Another paper co-authored by Wong last year said policymakers should “center race” in every decision. “Because our racial disparities are so severe across all elements of the American economy and society, no policy, even if facially race-neutral, is race-neutral in practice,” the report explained. “The design of all policy proposals — big and small — must be attentive to racial outcomes. All policy, from vaccine distribution to higher education funding to tax reform, will have racialized effects. Recognizing this reality, and always considering race in policy design, is therefore vital.”
“Any efforts to address inequality in the United States must account for the legacy of racial exclusion built into our economy,” Wong declared in a statement about her appointment. “I look forward to working with this distinguished group of leaders to propose ways to harness Treasury’s power and authority to redress these harms, toward a more just and equitable future.”
Lorella Praeli is the co-president of Community Change and its lobby arm Community Change Action. Both groups also have Soros OSF connections.
The charity focuses on myriad policy issues, including immigration reform, while the lobbying arm invests in congressional races and focuses on “voter engagement.”
Between 2016 and 2020, OSF’s Open Society Policy Center and FPOC gave Community Change roughly $2.6 million and Community Change Action over $8 million. The grants to the charity were mostly for “general support” while the grants to the lobbying arm were for advocacy on immigration policy, labor policy, and childcare expansion.
Joe Biden sold himself as a moderate, but he has governed from the far left from the outset and is pushing far-left philosophy and people into policy-making positions like this. We saw how well the Soros influence has worked with radical DAs. But now it’s advancing across all facets of government.
