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.

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 or someone on his staff, we are sure, monitors and posts on his Convention of States Facebook page. The way we know for sure is there are many “responses” to FB posters. However, where he is lax is he never boots off or criticizes bulliers. For example, see this prolific bullier below:
