TN Legislators ignore RNC resolution against Article V Convention

11022015
0443 am

The Republican National Committee (RNC) Committee by resolution has loudly opposed a Constitutional Convention on August 22, 2012. The resolution draft is posted below to read.

In spite of this stern warning and resolution passed by their respective representative body, both houses easily passed another call for a Constitutional Amendment Convention on April 2014 and in the Senate on April 2015 in Tennessee.

Oddly enough all prior resolutions were rescinded in 2010 by many of the same people that just voted for another call for convention in 2014 and 2015.

It’s mind boggling that so many at the behest of their own party affiliations still wish to defy ample warnings to the contrary let alone the wishes of many they represent.

An ongoing poll of multiple social media websites conducted by Stop CON CON TN reveals 97 percent DO NOT SUPPORT amendments being made to the US Constitution.

This poll clearly shows where the constituency are aligned, polar opposites of where their elected reps stand.

Please take the poll mentioned.

This is a total disconnect, one that must be remedied with stiff opposition. When those elected to represent you fail to do so, the negative impact of their contrary action with the looming possiblity of a runaway convention should be placed firmly in their laps and those individuals held accountable for the deleterious result that could result.

The resolution adopted below by the RNC has certainly fallen deafly onto our TN elected representatives ears once again.

There is no doubt that the RNC is standing firmly against an Article V Amendment to the States citing “that the risk of loss far exceeds the possibility of gain from such an uncontrolled and uncontrollable proceeding!”

Why would any group of legislators defy their own party’s recommendation to not proceed?

I believe the answer lies steadfastly in the lining of their pockets. The almost childlike defiance surely shows great consternation to those offering advice.

I would suggest anyone to follow the money because something something stinks in the TN camp of elected reps. I am very sure many of those on the left and the right of which they are aligned with are not economically challenged and are capable of exchanging monetary gain for a favor.

I have not personally witnessed this, it’s only an assumption, but few other things talk like a soft monetary bill landing on the hand of an elected rep. Why else would an elected rep make a stand against 97 percent of their constituency and the party they represent?

My guess is a possible usurpation at the hand of the almighty greenback would most likely be the motivation behind this uncivil act.

It would be fair to assess that those calling for an Article V Convention of the states and not following RNC advice on calling for Amendment are Republicans In Name Only, a name many dodge with intensity while others seem to glow in it?

By not heeding their own party advice and the will of 97 percent of their constituency, it shows expressed interest in working with the Left pushing their agendas while ignoring the greater portion of their constituency. This is gross neglect.

The only true way to assure this does not happen again is to make a strong stand at the ballot box and make every effort possible to assure they do return to their elected seats.

This is the resolution from the RNC to fellow legislators, Reince Preibus, Chairman.

RESOLUTION OPPOSING A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION

WHEREAS, Article V of the Constitution of the United States authorizes the convening of a Convention for proposing Amendments, now frequently called a Constitutional Convention, “on the application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States”; and,

WHEREAS, the Constitution is silent as to the qualifications of the delegates to such a convention and how or by whom they should be selected; and,

WHEREAS, the Constitution is also silent as to the agenda of such a Convention and sets out no way to limit the agenda of such a Convention, and,

WHEREAS, former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger concluded that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention after it is convened; and,

WHEREAS, a Constitutional Convention would attract a multitude of individuals and special interest groups with agendas that would alter our Constitution beyond recognition; and,

WHEREAS, well known Democrat members of the US Congress are currently advocating a Constitutional Convention to introduce a number of amendments that would enshrine and effectuate their liberal agenda; and

WHEREAS, the Constitution of the United States is a timeless document which, by limiting the powers of the government it created and guaranteeing the freedom and opportunity of the citizens for whom it was created, has produced the best and most productive nation in the history of the world; now be it

RESOLVED, that the Republican National Committee strongly opposes the convening of a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States for the reason that the risk of loss far exceeds the possibility of gain from such an uncontrolled and uncontrollable proceeding.

The following statement was taken directly from the Leaf Chronicle reporting on the Convention of States Legislative meeting in Nashville TN recently. Scott Williams, the Tennessee state director for the Convention of the States said this,

“An Article V Convention of the States allows the state legislatures to call a convention to amend the U.S. Constitution, as long as two-thirds of the states approve, Williams said. And whatever amendments are proposed at the convention would not become active unless ratified by three-fourths, or 38, of the states, he added.”

A State led Constitutional Convention will more than likely be held and a multitude of amendments will undoubtedly be added by many and those delegates chosen will have the ability to vote on them and present them for ratification or not. This is too risky as no one is assured the outcome regardless of statements to the contrary.

I have recently reached out to several of our elected representatives to once again save our Republic from the hands of usurpers and rescind the current call! It could be your last chance.

Call yours today and ask they support a recision of this plunge into a the abyss of which our country may never recover. I have reached out to Senator Mae Beavers, District 17, to rescind this call for a Convention. Why don’t you do the same.

Convention of States: Let’s talk about the crisis it could create

Convention of States: Let’s talk about the crisis it could create

10192015

Listen up America!

I have something very serious on my mind. I’ve stepped away from reporting for a minute and I just wanna talk!

I thinks it’s high time we have a conversation about this subject before the usurpers and infiltrators destroy our country.

I am looking down the road a bit and what I see could potentially ruin our country and change it forever.

There is a large group of people actively seeking to amend or change our Constitution forever.

In my opinion, these people, which I’ll name in another article are being co-opted and directed by people not interested in keeping America great. They unfortunately see this country as too mighty but realize it is in a weakened state. I believe they are taking this opportunity to change the most sacred document, aside from the bible, that this country owns.

I know many of these people personally and have had a great relationship with them. I don’t understand why they do not see that this process could very well unwind the fiber that holds us together and keeps us free.

Why can’t they see that some of the purveyors of this call for a convention are not good people.

Why are we not vetting those we choose to get our advice from? Where is the call to differentiate between good and evil?

Why are we believing the lies expelled from these same people who have a track record and associates within their groups that have and want to destroy our country?

Are we so blind with our “Christian values” that we don’t see evil when it stares us in the face?

Regardless of whether you call it a Convention of States, a Con Con, Constitutional Convention, an Article V Convention, a state or Congressional led Convention, the end product could lead to a single change or a complete rewrite of the most sacred document that has protected our freedom for several hundred years.

Any path or entry point that is breached could lead to a complete Article V Convention where our Constitution could be ripped apart and never seen again.

I have grown tired of the play on words as many attempt to justify their actions of backing a COS with one excuse after another. We need to stop and face the fact and realize that if we play with fire we may get burned!

Sure, it’s Constitutional and it is our right to do so, but to open it up for the vultures to pick at is not a good thing and the timing is horrible. In case you haven’t noticed, we have a president that has said the Constitution is an old outdated document, we have known socialist and communist in our elected chambers. This leads me to believe someone wants it changed!

There are some very bad people and groups out there that are just waiting to inject their non-American agendas into it once it is opened. How do I know this? Research it! It’s there!

I keep hearing this same lame offering for pushing for an Article V Convention of states over and over. “We are gonna only suggest one or two items to be amended!” Hello? Earth to Conservative groups! So will everyone else! It will be like a dinner for two being crashed by oh maybe a million other people with their own special interest agenda items too.

To my understanding and I’m sure I will be corrected but there is no limit on the number of delegates to be assigned, although we get only one vote per state, the room on that day could and probably will be filled with countless people or delegates. Can you imagine that many people trying to decide on one subject? It will quickly heighten to many subjects, I’m sure.

I am astounded at the response this action has had on “conservatives and conservative groups”, mainly Tea Party Leaders and their groups. It has turned them into zombies aimlessly wandering around with their flesh rotting off. This leads me to believe they were co-opted by special interest groups, lobbyists and perverted politicians and other subversive types. To me there is no other reason. Someone has sold them a bill of goods and they sold the farm over it!

It beats all I have ever seen.

I believe so strongly in this Article V Convention NOT going forward that I have isolated myself from this pack and have chosen to make a stand outside of the current arena I used to call “true conservatives!” Perhaps, by stepping outside this box I have defined that true line of conservative and a conservative in name only. I have always known that line has existed, I have never stepped over it. Never really had to worry about it till now. This has not been a popular move but I’m certain it’s the right one. History will tell us I’m afraid.

Our world, our country as we know it could drastically change if these folks open up our Constitution to a huge pack of wolves. I am not gonna apologize for my stance, I made it and I’ll stand on it regardless of the fall out. I believe that much that it is a huge mistake to pursue amending the Constitution. If this convention goes forward and it goes as I expect, I’ll not wiggle my finger at those involved or shake my head, I’ll more than likely bow my head, pray and wipe the tears from my eyes. Our country ruined by those fighting to save it. Wow! I can’t stand thinking about it.

27 states have already approved applications for a convention or CON CON based on a single item, to pass a balanced budget amendment. 9 other states under Republican control are also calling for a convention to make changes. 34 is the magic number to conduct a Convention. TN must not follow this path, if already committed, it needs to be rescinded. And every politician that is behind this movement should be called and warned of its implications.

My greatest fear is that enough states will align, the delegates assigned, the doors will close and a free for all to change our Constitution will ensue.

Please take note there are very few rules or limitations in the Constitution to limit the actions of the “appointed” delegates or the direction they may take when they get there. This is a very dangerous move based on the political climate that now exists in our country and in all branches of our government.

Can you imagine the heist of our delegates by special interest groups and lobbyist aiding in the process?

I imagine the delegate selection process to simply be a highest bidder war. Where the special interest group or lobbyist who pays the most gets the delegate designation. Think it couldn’t happen? Ever been on the floor of the house or watched CSPAN on a big vote day. It’s interesting to watch as one person runs to another and the process repeats over and over.

With that thought in mind, can you imagine what would happen inside a room of lobbyist, er……. delegates and the bidding begins…..with few rules and immunity from prosecution? Whoa! Before you know it, we have a severely modified or completely rewritten Constitution. There are very few guidelines on how the convention will be conducted or even if the ratification process will work unaltered.

A CON CON or whatever you call it is just too risky! Our country is worth more to me than to see it taken away because political hacks and others want it changed.

Just remember by any name you call it, any route you choose to get there the result could be the same. A complete rewrite or a runaway convention could happen. The last time it was done it was a runaway and fortunately there was enough Godly men guarding the decision making, today? Not so much!

Could it be done the right way and only one amendment be passed? Sure. Is it likely it would go this way? Simply put NO!

The Constitution is not our problem, those we elect are the problem and the people influencing them. If we want lower taxes, federal restraint, a balanced budget, safer streets, parental control or whatever, simply apply pressure to those elected bodies to act and vote the way you want. Demand they obey the Constitution and punish them if they don’t! The 18 enumerated powers is all the Feds can do! It’s pretty confining as is.The rest is allowed by the people and those we send to our state houses and to DC! Get the lobbyist and special interest groups out of our houses and you will see great change!

We don’t have a Constitution problem, we have a people problem.

I will end my conversation here for now. I am preparing another article on some of the people involved in the Convention of States movement!

Ever heard of Grover Norquist? George Soros? The UN? Muslim Brotherhood?

My upcoming article is gonna blow you away at the level of corruption surrounding those mentioned above.
