Meckler’s Hirelings Accuse Us of Their Own Conspiracy

Rush Limbaugh says this all the time and it’s been considered to be a signature of Leftists tactics for many years. I first noticed it coming out of the mouths of Harold Ickes and Sid Blumenthal defending the Clinton’s when they were still in the White House.

In a comment to Anastasia’s article “Meckler’s volunteers taught Alinsky tactics as well” a couple of days ago, a commenter, Maggie T, said this:

“I had a supporter try to pigeonhole me into 1 of 3 categories because I questioned the “movement.” Apparently, I’m either a radical liberal Democrat or one of all other left wing socialists (or Marxists), a Republican establishment elitist, or a follower/member of the John Birch Society, with the main focus as the spreading of false information about the Article V Convention process while claiming to be a constitutional conservative. …”

In the Twitter-patter that goes on behind the curtain here, Maggie T seems to be spot on, since  the spokespeople who’ve been rolled out to attack this site have all been working off talking points instead of any personal knowledge. And they are a broken record. They are very shallow, exactly one concept deep…that what this site is saying are lies, our strategy is right out of Alinsky’s playbook, and that we are only attacking Article V…even as we’ve never really discussed it.  This site has nothing to do with Article V.

After several requests,  they’ve still offered not a single citation or quote. I actually doubt they’ve even read a single thing that’s been written here, instead reading from a script. Hirelings. Reminds me of Josh Earnest. I would think Mr. Meckler would feel some embarrassment at hiring such mindless robots. One of them even claims to have his own “civics’ blog.

But if you’ll notice that photo of Mark Meckler on the masthead, that fellow sitting behind and to his left is none other than Lawrence Lessig, esteemed Harvard professor, a pillar of the academic Left, and an intellectual force behind the Left’s Article V movement for years…before the CoS project was even formed.

Yes, it’s true, the Left is involved in Article V, as the COS people are saying, only it’s with Meckler, not against him. Lessig also sits (or sat) on the board of directors of the Goldwater Institute’s (Nick Dranias) Compact for America, another Article V project.

Now, this isn’t a recent discovery, except maybe to Meckler’s new-hires, who likely haven’t read the Cliffs Notes version of The Federalist Papers, either. The Left’s involvement has been common knowledge among the writers at Freedom Outpost, e.g. Cheryl Pass and Michelle Horstman, both of whom share links, citations, real proof, between the Convention of States and their circle of friends, and the Left’s circle of friends. These connections run very deep, with even deeper pockets, and drift into the world of pseudo-Intellectualism which gave us Barack Obama. (This was once the exclusive domain of the Marxist Left, but now is shared with some ersatz renderings of exclusivist-Libertarianism) as justification for forging this right-left alliance.

This is a deal-breaker between me and “these kinds” of libertarians, once they expose that one shared rib with the Left; a deep disdain for the ordinary citizen, which, if you’ll inquire deeper, was the principal purpose for the Constitution to be written in the first place. Neither believes ordinary people can manage their affairs without some sort of management, and on that basis, a kind of alliance evolves. Shared disdain.

Meckler’s intellectual pal, Rob Natelson, wrote a really silly-titled article, “How Liberal Propagandists Suckered Conservatives into Opposing an Amendments Convention” in March, 2015, then, hypocrisy of hypocrisies, the comments were loaded with Alinskyist name-calling, only defending Natelson’s arguments, not attacking them. What the….?

Meckler’s posse? Who can tell? But pretty stupid if they were.

But there’s enough smoke here to cause my friends to dig into seeing just how deep this cabal runs.

Let's just  say we have information you don't have, kmayo. we talk to Meckler people behind the curtain, on Twitter, and unless you're one of them, You wouldn't know this. maybe you're a supervisor. They don't sound too bright, and seem to be begging to be led. I only guess ate hirelings, but if a kid sits on his computer sending out Art V tweets 8 hours a day for free...well, not even lefties do that. And Meckler, Farris and Lessig go way back. We do our homework,

Meckler, Lessing AND FARRIS go way back? Now that you've lumped Farris into that equation I definitely know you don't know what you are talking about. What is way back? Do you even know when Meckler and Farris met? But lets assume for the moment that you are right and you do have "information I don't have", so what. It means nothing unless you put it out there. Then you say you talk to "people behind the scenes and they don't seem to bright"? Wow. Ever hear of "hearsay"? Ever hear of a person being able to confront his witnesses? Ever hear of "bearing false witness"? And of course with that statement you have completely eliminated any reason for anyone to pay attention to you because of your arrogant and condescending attitude toward those not so very bright people you talk to "behind the scenes". I guess that means you are the bright one an everyone should just take your word for it, because afterall, you were born in Passaic, raised in Miami and operated (an) Far East import-export business. Makes sense to me. Please keep spouting this nonsense because the more you do the more ignorant you look. But there is one way for you to save face in all of this. Prove it.

@kmayo  As one of my great grandfathers said, 30-40 generations ago said, "Dixit insipiens."


I don't make this stuff up, but I also don't won't do your homework. This site is dedicated to the very un-conservative, mean, acts committed by the CoS. We're not anti-Art. V. Bet you don't know that....because you haven't read, or can't comprehend,  what's written here. Not my problem. .Do your homework.

Wow, that's brilliant.  There's a man sitting behind Meckler that is also for Article V.  Scary!  Now, why don't you tell us what that PROVES.  Not what your conspiratorial mind thinks it proves.  Seriously, do you have the secret agreement they forged that the "hirelings" know nothing about?  Please make it known because I know many of these "hirelings" (not) and I can assure you we don't want to be misled.  People that fall for this nonsense are the empty headed ones, not the "hirelings" you malign.  Seriously, do YOU think people are that naive to think that just because you are on the same stage with someone that you must also be in bed together?  If you do, then you too are empty headed.


As for "hirelings".  Any proof of that?  And don't mention one or two names, because there are thousands out there that have taken up the mantle.

@kmayo It proves that the COS leaders have been working with the liberals since day one and COS leaders use liberal tactics.

Janet, do (you) know Mark Meckler? I do, and as a hard core conservative (and a Christian) I can tell you Mark is no liberal and liberals have nothing whatsoever to do with the COSP, and to say otherwise is sheer ignorance
