Convention of the States Does Not Exist in Article V – Part I

No need to go far to see what’s wrong with our nation, all you need to do is watch how Article V of the Constitution is being implemented. All you need is to read Article V of the U.S. Constitution then refer to those calling for an Article V Convention, Convention of the States and a Constitutional Convention.

We do not need a U.S. Constitutional Convention. There is a push for States to apply for a U.S. Constitutional Convention to either propose Constitutional Amendments or restructure our government. I wish to identify the dangers of such a Convention using only Article V of the Constitution. Hopefully, this will convince you to oppose any type of U.S. Constitutional Convention.

The United States Constitution has endured 226 years of trials and tribulations as the supreme Law of the Land. Our ancestors fought in civil wars, two World Wars, the Great Depression, many recessions, along with many other atrocities to bring our country to where it is today. Even though they endured the ages, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the foundation of our law system and have propelled all of our lives to new heights. It has produced the highest number of Nobel winners, medical, business and technological advances known to man but there are some who are calling for a convention.

A U.S. Constitutional Convention is being called different names. American Legislative Executive Council (also known as ALEC) advocates for an “Article V Convention” while Mark Levin encourages a “Convention of the States”. No matter what you call it, the basis of these conventions is Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

States are empowered with two powers according to the U.S. Constitution, Article V. They shall apply for a convention and ratify proposed amendments. States cannot control it or call a convention. It’s questionable whether delegates can be controlled as many state legislatures are proposing and by no means can the agenda be controlled. Once the two-thirds of the state apply, Congress calls the convention but no one knows where it will go from there.

Constitutional Amendments proposed for this convention run the gamete. Amendments include a balance budget amendment, term limits, Supreme Court, eminent domain and even “Citizens United.” Whether your issue is with the budget, property rights or corporatism, there’s bound to be an amendment appealing to gain your support in your state applying for a U.S. Constitutional convention.

Hopefully, you, as do I, oppose a U.S. Constitutional Convention but if you are not convinced, attached is further analysis. Professor Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor, explains the justification of the dangers of a Convention.

Is Rush Limbaugh Afraid of Obama?

I am a loyal, and nearly every day, listener of the Rush Limbaugh Show. I have begun to wonder what is up with him and the other conservatives who so adamantly oppose Barack Obama. Rush spends 3 hours a day, Monday through Friday railing about Obama and his policies. Rush says Obama is the most dangerous man in America (not a quote) yet ignores the biggest weak spot Obama possesses, the “natural born citizen” issue.

We know that Obama Sr. was a Kenyan, and therefore a citizen of Great Britain. Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 5 states that to be president a person must be a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America. The Naturalization Act of 1790, and an 1875 Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett (88 US 162) define the term “Natural Born Citizen”. There are other cases that have discussed this issue and have come down on the side of Obama not being eligible to hold the office of President of the United States.

A recent Georgia case was decided in Obama’s favor despite the fact that neither Obama nor his lawyer showed up, ignoring a lawful subpoena. The Judge, Michael Malihi, told the plaintiffs’ lawyers he would render a default judgment in their favor due to Obama snubbing the subpoena. But when all was said and done Malihi used a minor court decision from Indiana to find in Obama’s favor, totally ignoring an act of Congress, the Naturalization Act of 1790; and a Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett. This decision is being appealed and many wonder what happened to change the judge’s mind in only 6 days. What made this judge totally reverse course in such a short time when he had ample evidence to support a finding of “ineligible” and no evidence to refute the case presented by the plaintiffs? Was he paid off? Was he threatened? No one knows why the decision came down the way it did under the circumstances. I wrote about it at the time from the perspective that our republic is no more.

As I see this from a non-lawyer perspective I see coercion of some sort. Naturally I can’t prove anything, but when I look at all the facts at my disposal I can’t come to any other conclusion. I look at this and then think about Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz, Levin, O’Reilly, Coulter, and all the other conservative pundits taking a pass on this issue. It makes me ask, “Why will they not even talk about this issue, other than ridiculing those who address Obama’s eligibility”?

What is there that prevents the biggest radio audience in the nation, and maybe beyond our borders from hearing Rush confront this issue head on? Why is it that the most powerful voice in media won’t touch the most important issue of our day? As painful as it is for me to admit, I find myself wondering why Limbaugh and the others, but especially Rush, take the same stand as MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, and the rest of the “main stream media”. Rush is brilliant, and I thought fearless for the cause of liberty, but his silence on this makes me wonder.

I figure Rush and the rest are aware of the situation because I cannot imagine this is unknown to any media person anywhere, and certainly cannot possibly escape a man of Rush’s abilities. I know all about it and I am not a media professional by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t get paid to find out about news stories. I do it because I care about my country, the Constitution, and the future of my grandchildren. I am not saying Rush and the others don’t care about America, but it makes me wonder where their priorities are when they can ignore the most important story of the last 50 years.

If Rush really thinks Obama is so dangerous and wants him out of office so bad why isn’t he raising this issue on a daily basis? Is he concerned about the reaction from Obama’s FCC? Does he fear the “Fairness Doctrine”? Is he concerned about the reaction of his advertisers? We saw Glenn Beck get booted off of FOX News for his reporting of the truth about Islam and the nuts who follow that pagan cult. Now we have seen Judge Andrew Napolitano get booted for hard hitting reporting on issues not to the liking of the Saudi Prince who owns 7% of FOX, and George Soros who also has his hands in the till there. Is Obama involved in Judge Napolitano’s dismissal also?

We the People only have so many resources to solve these issues. We can’t depend on the main stream media because everyone knows the leftist media is determined to destroy this nation, whatever it takes. When we can’t depend on the “conservative” media to stand in the gap, where do we go?

Allen West said, when questioned about the Obama eligibility issue, that it is “political suicide” for any politician to confront it. That tells me all I need to know about the courage of politicians, including Allen West. The only candidate running for any office that will take this on is John Dummett, a very dark horse candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination. Dummett has a lawsuit to be heard in Tennessee on February 24, 2012. Dummett also has lawsuits pending in several other states and  in federal court in Arizona. If we had others candidates like Dummett, with the courage to stand for freedom first and a political career second, our nation would not be in the throes of death right now.

Rush Limbaugh, with the biggest audience in any form of media, could force the cowards in Congress to confront this issue if he would. Rush, along with others like Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Neal Boortz could bring this to a boiling point but they won’t. WHY??????

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

CDN's Newest Talk Show: Married To The Game!

While conservative talk radio has no shortage of hosts and personalities, sometimes it does seem to have a shortage of ideas.  Sometimes it feels like everybody is saying the same things, and the only thing that really differentiates them is who can yell the loudest.  That’s where Married To The Game comes in.

Married To The Game is a new show and part of the CDN family that’s designed to be a “safe” place to discuss politics without worrying about the typical conservative litmus tests.  The words “RINO” and “true conservative” are not used here.  Instead, we focus on news and solutions for problems in an open and honest manner.  If you’ve refrained from listening to political talk radio, because you’re tired of hearing the same positions ad nauseam, then Married To The Game might be for you.  And… did we mention it airs on Saturday nights?  Be sure to tune in starting at 10pm (East) and 7pm (West) on Saturday nights, and feel free to call in to make sure your voice is being heard.  Be sure to check out the sample below.
