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.

Appears Meckler has a dirty cop on his payroll

By Big Al

Meckler has been making a big to-do about an in-law of constitutional scholar Publius Huldah having problems with the law 30 years ago. This is only because she is against an Article V convention and has been educating people about why it could be so dangerous.

It has no merit on her ethics or abilities. But Meckler needs to look in his own backyard before throwing stones at others.

Kissing-Up and Kicking-Down Among Meckler Cultists

By Vinnie

Before 9-11, in many parts of the country Dr. Laura (Schlesinger) occupied the talk radio slot now occupied by Glenn Beck. She had a habit that I always admired, namely speaking to her callers in a manner that befit their station other than her own.

You see, Dr. Laura is a PhD, a very smart lady, but with a short fuse for certain kinds of behavior by her callers, especially pretentiousness and whining. When a person calls seeking absolution for a selfish act, she tears into them like a tiger. She kicks up. But when a simple woman calls, possessing a lesser command of the King’s English, maybe even a touch of hillbilly or redneck, Dr. Laura is as gentle as a kitten and as patient as a saint. She kisses down.

Meckler’s partner Farris throws tantrum at Virginia senator

By Lizzie B

Meckler’s partner in the Convention of States is a bully who lives in Loudoun County, Virginia. He started Patrick Henry College there so he thinks he has weight to throw around  at people who don’t agree with his project. This time his rage is directed at Virginia state Senator Richard Black, who is opposed to using Article V. Black also happens to be the senator for the district in which Farris resides.

Meckler denegrates Texas state Republicans

This disrespectful email was forwarded to me. It was signed by “Tamara Colbert, State Director, Convention of States Project”:

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…

Meckler calls one who disagrees “bizarre and irrational”

By Big Al

Meckler trashes publicly anyone who disagrees with his Convention of States project. Below is a snippet of his rant about a member of the John Birch Society who wrote an article disagreeing with him. This time his wrath is aimed at Joe Wolverton, who is a writer for The New American:

Meckler uses Alinsky tactics to attack elderly women

By Rasputin

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” –Saul Alinsky

A few weeks ago there was an attempt to destroy the reputation of an elderly constitutional scholar who travels making speeches of the dangers of an Article V convention. Her name is Publius Huldah.

Publius is a respected writer on Freedom Outpost and this author learned of this hit-job-in-writing from an article there, Convention of States Uses Alinsky Tactics in Attempt to Destroy Publius Huldah.

Meckler allows bulliers on his Convention of States Facebook page

By Rasputin

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:
