TN State House Committee votes 5-3 to amend US Constitution, to Calendar and Rules

012716

The Tennessee State Government Committee voted yesterday on SJR67, Convention of States resolution.

I am sad to inform you the motion passed 5-3.

It will move on to the Calendar and Rules Committee for another vote possibly next week before going to a full House vote.

Representative Sheila Butt and Mark Meckler both spoke in support of the bill.

At approximately the 17:50 mark of the video, Meckler began spewing forth as many lies as possible that could be placed inside a short time frame. In my opinion, he could have been charged with perjury.

(An analysis and rebuke of the Meckler diatribe is needed. Hopefully a faithful expert reader could provide this information to share.)

Great questions were asked by the Representatives on the committee. Raising questions about a runaway convention, the 2nd Amendment, vetting of the delegates, restraining the delegates, itinerary of a Convention were very appropriate but allowing Meckler and Butt to field the questions and provide one sided answers was a total disservice to the people of Tennessee.

All Representatives speaking voiced that they had received many emails, calls and office visits from both sides of this issue. Thanks to many of my readers and advocates for this service.

It’s sad to report that the voice of the people did not get fully represented here. Although acknowledging much dissent and non support for this bill, the Reps approved the resolution which will now move on to another committee.

Let’s get citizen representatives to the next hearing.

Personal side bar:

During the hearing, not a single voice of opposition was offered. I believe this committee was asking the right questions but a dissenting voice in the room may have meant the difference and swayed the vote to a NO.

We need an Article V expert to stand in the gap and represent the people at the next Calendar and Rules Hearing. Please step forward if this is your calling.

Question for legal experts:

At the 57 to 58 minute mark, after a call for a vote was made, the committee took a small break to discuss a legal issue. In the break, you can see Mark Meckler leave his seat walk to the left of the screen, say something to Representative Butt then Representative Butt nodding her head approaches the committee and speaking with several of the committee members as if to lobby them about an issue they made have had during the hearing.

I was under the assumption that once a vote was called you could not speak to the committee members or offer influence to them. Am I wrong on this issue, please feel free to offer comment on the BCN Comment section below.

Concerned citizen ousted from Convention of States meeting, deemed a “potential disruptive threat”

Concerned citizen ousted from Convention of States meeting, deemed a “potential disruptive threat”

Dear Patriots,

An article submitted by Donny Harwood to Bradley County News-

I was tossed out of a Convention of States meeting in Nashville TN tonight.

I applied online to this very public meeting and received a ticket to attend. Immediately upon arriving, I said my name and I was surrounded immediately by COS employees and escorted out.

I demanded that I be able to attend this very important meeting but was told that because COS paid for the room they can determine who attends and who does not. I asked if I could speak with my State Senator Mike Bell and Mr Clark, a COS Regional Director said I could call him but he had not talked to him. I then asked for Mark Meckler and he said he was not attending this meeting.

My State Senator Mike Bell as well as Sheila Butt, Bill Ketron and Jay Reedy were inside with 5 other State Legislators reportedly. I was told this meeting was for them, this was the purpose. My question is what about the people who will be affected by these proposed changes and the fear that comes with a runaway convention.

I was told that I was a “potential disruptive threat” and that I was “Red Flagged” by someone in the organization. I was not disturbing a thing and even gave them my word that disruption was not my intent, I only wanted to learn more about this process. After all, I was told on two occasions to come to the meeting so “I could learn what it is about.”

At first I was angry then sad. I saw a slice of America that was not part of my country. In my opinion, they are attempting to put our Constitution in the trash and are not even allowing a conflicting opinion enter the room. There is a collective spookiness about this group of “conservatives!” I have not completely figured it out but I’m piecing it together.

The COS Regional Director first name I believe was Kevin, last name Clark, he was very nice but was visibly being directed by someone above him in the decision to toss me from the meeting. This display of tyrannical behavior by a “Conservative group” is completely unacceptable and begs all opposing to study this group and I would suggest we follow the money. Something is not right about it. I believe there is an agenda behind the agenda. Just a hunch, but I’m usually right about these things.

A task as big as changing our Constitution and putting our country at great risk, this group should be accountable to the people not just the politicians that will be called upon to call a convention. Secrets and “Private” meetings within a Republic is not the way things get done and it leaves the people with little input. This Constitution is also mine to protect. Those trying to pervert it in my opinion are enemy number one. This is a very sensitive issue with me as well as millions of other freedom loving Americans. Co-opting anyone’s freedom papers like the Constitution should never be allowed to act this way unimpeded.

One thing that I have drawn from this fiasco is it has only strengthened my resolve to make sure a Con Con does not come together in TN and across the nation. My cage has been rattled and that energy will spill over into our efforts to stop a Con Con.

The actions by COS tonight shows me that perhaps this animal has grown too big and out of touch with the people they are suppose to represent.

We have our work cut out for us. Continue to spread the word and direct people to this site. It’s crucial that we have great numbers to confront this gulag.

Remember, “Where the flak is heaviest it confirms the target!”
