Farris blames JBS & Eagle Forum for dead babies and $16T debt

By Anastasia

Anastasia certainly can’t fault the Convention of States Project and their leaders for being creative in their arguments to get supporters on board. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t outrageous and over the top.

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.

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 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.

Article V, a Pissant of an Issue in Times of Crisis?

By Vinnie

Pissant: a type of ant, from the word “pismire” a 14th Century Middle English word for “ant” Who knew?

I was just reading an article about the 2016 election, with the proposition that if a genuine conservative wins, his election will likely throw the country into a mini-civil war, with months of civil disobedience in urban areas. The federal bureaucracy would be in full-scale slowdown or out-and-out revolt, and the establishment wing of the GOP siding with liberal Democrats.

For many of us, this is the fight we’ve been itching for.

Snot-Eyed Inbreds, Be Careful of the Company You May Be Keeping

By Vinnie

My friend in Virginia called last night to tell me he liked our mission statement. He thought it set the right tone for the site.

I won’t tell you what business he’s in, but he has to associate with some pretty rough people, and still be able to walk away with his head attached.

If it Walks like a Leftist, and Talks like a Leftist…

By Vinnie

My friend Augustino in Oregon has made it a hobby to study the manners and customs of the Left. He says there are enough insecurities and self-contradictions among them as to make Dr Freud curious about them as a  type and he plans to write a book about it. He even has a crew who’re trained to pick fights with them on the internet by pushing on those insecurity buttons.

With that in mind I asked Augie to look at some Article V web-articles, at the behest of another friend (in Virginia) who’s been involved in that Article V debate. He said he saw some similarities to what has always been associated with leftwing slime-tactics, and wanted to know if Augie agreed.

He does. Continue reading If it Walks like a Leftist, and Talks like a Leftist…
