Meckler lies when he claims Scalia supported Article V

By Rasputin

H/t The New American 

A friend of Rasputin’s received an email from the Convention of States a few days ago, claiming “new documents” were uncovered in which deceased Justice Antonin Scalia supported an Article V Convention of States. How convenient. Since the Justice is not with us anymore, he can’t refute it. But of course there’s more to this story.

Farris and Meckler now eating their own, CoS volunteer booted for skepticism

By Rasputin

It’s hard enough to watch Meckler and Farris and their minions denigrate those who are against their Convention of States/Article V movement and then delete their posts and/or ban them from their Facebook page.

But now they are eating their own.

Rasputin is honored: we have had hack attempts

By Rasputin

Over the last few days our illustrious website has had several hack attempts.

Rasputin and his writers are honored.

Maybe it’s because of an endorsement of Article V and the Convention of States by a Texas governor who needs some more education.

And his Texas Public Policy Foundation he so richly relies on is funded by Mssrs. Meckler and Farris. The John Hancock Committee for the States. DBA Citizens for Self Governance. A Project of the Convention of States Project.

EIN 27-1657203

Go ahead and plug it into google.

No lines need to be drawn.

Spasibo.

By Lizzie B

Well, our hiatus lasted just a little over 2 months. Apparently we have some recidivism on the part of the Convention of States Project team. And ya’ll thought all the CoS folks were behaving themself. Nah.

Convention of States Project writing own rules for a “convention”

By Rasputin

Well well well. The Convention of States Project had a busy week.

Not only have they made it clear they think they are “in charge” through denigration of critics and legislators, ad hominem attacks on detractors, and allowing people on their FB page to get away with threatening those who disagree; now they think they have made it clear they are totally in charge of any “convention” and are writing the rules for said convention, and expecting all state legislators in the country to go along with them. Those who don’t believe in their project and “rules” be damned.

Mo’ Money Blues for Meckler, Farris, Levin and Convention of States

By Vinnie

It was Mark Levin who kicked off this Convention of States idea last year in his bestseller The Liberty Amendments. He then joined with Meckler and Farris to launch the Convention of States national crusade. To pad his cachet, Levin then did a curious thing, he made the argument that James Madison was against Nullification, which he most decidedly was not. (Nullification is where a state can declare a federal law unconstitutional, and refuse to abide by it.)

For taking that stance, Levin took a series of tongue-lashings from several constitutional scholars and forums, including Publius Huldah, whose public sliming by Mark Meckler was a major reason why this site was established. (see our Why We’re Here mission statement at the top of the page.) They all cited direct quotes from Madison himself. Levin’s only defense was from some letters Madison wrote in the 1830s against South Carolina’s attempted nullification of a federal tariff, which was directed at an  unconstitutional (illegal) nullification.

Meckler’s Convention of States Mocks Other Conservatives

By Vinnie

I’ve visited several Article V sites, both pro and con, and have noted a strong mocking tone by proponents of the Article V process against people who show up with hard questions. or disagree. Several have told me how viscous the anti-V crowd has been with their comments and questions but I can’t find any, and so I have asked them to show me.

They don’t seem to be able to.

Meckler volunteer vicious attack on Publius Huldah

By Rasputin

Those who have read the section “why we are here” will remember the reason this site was begun was because of Meckler’s and his cohorts and volunteers vicious attacks on those who don’t agree with their “project.” The most vicious attack to date was against constitutional scholar Publius Huldah.

Meckler’s group loathes her because she dares to speak about the opposite side and how a Convention of States, Article V, could pan out and could pose a danger.

Please remember we stated this site is neither pro or con Article V.

But an even more vicious attack has come against Publius Huldah in the last few days, this time from a person by the name of Norman Bobo.

Meckler misleads with number of states signed up/in

By Lizzie B

My oh my my. What a whole lot of confusion going around in this frazzled brain of mine. So many emails, so much confusing information and so many different numbers and claims.

And Lizzie isn’t the only person confused by all this finagling. I’ve even seen people on that new fangled stuff called Twitter and Facebook confused and asking questions.

But now in all seriousness. Below is a partial email from the Convention of States dated February 16 of this year. 2015.

It is signed by Meckler. He states 26 states have filed The Convention of States Resolution. What exactly does filed mean? We know it doesn’t mean passed both Houses of the state legislature, since we know positively only 4 states have passed both houses: Georgia, Florida, Alaska and just a few weeks ago, Alabama.
