Michigan Conservative Union joins the anti-Article V fight

Published

on

Article V Convention of States

The late Phyllis Schlafly opposed it.

Her “Eagles” oppose it.

Concerned Women For America opposes it.

The John Birch Society opposes it (and Phyllis herself had a brief stint in it before she left it, but seems to agree with them on this one).

Now this Michigan Conservative Union is opposed to it.

What is this opposition?

They are fighting against the so called Con Con as some of the above like to call it.  What it is in reality is a call for a Convention of States to propose new amendments to our U.S. Constitution.  Let us read what Article V says.

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

We don’t expect our Congress to call for a Convention of States.  It is then up to the States themselves to call for a convention.  We as advocates of liberty, lovers of American Exceptionalism and Freedom must get behind this.  Otherwise other than Protest Movements and/or building a new party (like the Federalists), we will be finished as a nation.  This is one way to break out of the current two party paradigm, and break Duverger’s law which sadly even the great Phyllis Schlafly defaulted on.  Hey, you can thank her for ushering in Donald Trump as our President.  It’s true for she supported him from the start.

We are grateful for Schlafly’s activism to keep radical feminism out of the United States Constitution, and we understand had it not been for this woman who embraced the feminine mystic and yet fought for that mystic and then some; some of these current battles over transgender restrooms and the LGBTQ jihad would have started much sooner and would have been approved by our U.S. Constitution on top of that.  Schlafly understood the dangers of positive rights, and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) so called was a positive rights amendment that thankfully got shot down in flames in the end.

I ask the Michigan Conservative Union this question?  If Article V is the problem. what do you insist on doing instead?  A protest movement?  A push to build a third party?  Why do you want to work with Democrats on this?  I though the Democrats would support this as a way to push more progressive amendments like the ERA?  Nope, I guess not.  Maybe they know something about this and fear it would be a push back against their vile Marxist ways?  If the MCU can’t offer any remedy other than voting for Republicans (even the best ones) then you’re not offering anything to really help our Country and are still managing the decay of our nation, as the the would be tyrants inch us closer to their dystopia for us (utopia for them).

For once let us do something right, even if the consequences are immediate pain.  One way to do the right thing is to push for a Convention of States.

Disappointing: Michigan Conservative Union working with MI House Dems to kill Article V COS proposal

https://www.jenkuznicki.com/disappointing-michigan-conservative-union-working-mi-house-dems-kill-article-v-cos-proposalMost of the call concerned a meet-up in Lansing today at 9:15am, to go visit House members to try to persuade them to vote against an Article V Convention of States. A leader of the group from Traverse City told members of the discussion group, to spend more time with the Democrats, because, “they are our closest allies,” and that Republicans in “Lansing have drunk the kool-aid.”

The leader of the MCU joined the phone call 20 minutes late, and said that he has been, “assured by the House Democrat leader, that if we got them 9 Republican votes, they’ll (meaning the Dems) vote 100% against the proposal, and kill it.”

Whoopi is right about the behavior of UCLA Basketball players in China

Published

on

Whoopi Goldberg

I’m not a big fan of Whoopi Goldberg, okay but I have to tell you that I agree with her regarding the following statement.  This is in regards to a couple of UCLA basketball players who thought they could take something from a store in China and not pay for it.

You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country, and you embarrassed the president. Now I’m not a big fan of the president, but the fact that he had to call and get your asses out of there is not anything to be proud of or think is cool.  If this isn’t the stupidest thing a young person has done, particularly if you’re over six-feet tall, and black… is this just the ridiculous stupidity of youth?

Let me add one more thing. You’re an embarrassment to UCLA itself, and their athletic department as well.  Now I am not a big fan of those who run academia, but if these jerks are given the right punishment, I shall give the university credit and praise for doing it.  All right UCLA, the ball is in your court.  Do something right for once.

Whoopi Goldberg to ‘Stupid’ UCLA Players: You’re Fortunate Trump Could ‘Get Your A**es Out’ of China

http://freebeacon.com/issues/whoopi-goldberg-ucla-players-fortunate-trump-get-out-china/“Now, you’re in China—you’re this big!” she said, reaching high into the air to indicate the players’ height. “It’s not like you’re gonna blend, you’re not going to blend in, run out.”

Goldberg said their families and mentors had no doubt told them numerous times not to do things like this, and she said the foolishness of youth is the only explanation for something so dumb.

President Trump says ‘You’re welcome’ after UCLA Bruins players thank him for help with China incident

Trump, who was already on an Asia trip, spoke to President Xi Jinping of China about the incident, and the players were allowed to return to the United States on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, all three read prepared statements at a news conference in which it was revealed that they have been suspended from the team indefinitely. They thanked the Chinese government and police for how they were treated and United States officials for helping secure their release.

The Obamacare Debacle: Why we need a second political party

Published

on

By

Sometimes you simply hope that your predictions will be wrong and that events will miraculously turn out differently; unfortunately, this is not one of those times. Most people with a modicum of common sense anticipated that the Republicans would now take the blame for the troubles of Obamacare, and that has come to pass.  The aphorism ‘You broke it, you bought it’ comes to mind, and while somewhat unfair to the situation, perception is reality in the world of politics.

Tear it down and start over.

While not endeavoring to reign blows upon a deceased equine, this is why the Republican party needed to keep its promise on Obamacare. It’s also the reason why it’s time to sweep away the old and begin anew with a brand new second major political party. That phrase was deliberately used because it has become quite evident that the Republican and Democratic parties have started to merge in far too many ways.

The Obamacare debacle is a prime illustration of this unfortunate merging. O’Sullivan’s First Law explains this to a fair degree since the denizens of a certain party will – over time – want to keep the bureaucratic levers of power with the false idea that they can have it run more efficiently. Besides the simple expedient of term limits, a new party could start anew with a mandate to avoid this political trap.

An illustration from the world of engineering seems more than appropriate in this instance. There are times when a machine or structure has become so riddled with worn out or failed components that it is far better to simply scrap or tear it down and build something from scratch. The aphorism is to start with a clean sheet of paper such that the old assumptions and constructs are swept away in favor of something entirely new and innovative. “We’ve always done it this way” is replaced with questioning skepticism with regard to what works, and what doesn’t.

Existing components that have proven to be of service can be utilized in the new construct but only if they meet certain criteria, not simply because they are carried along with everything else of the old. By the same token, members of the old party can become a vital part of the new but only if they are up to the task.

The final word on the Republican party.

It is more than likely that the people responsible for that bureaucratic mess will use it to good political advantage against those who opposed it in the first place. We should be getting rid of governmental interference in the free market, but instead will see a complete control with national socialist healthcare [i.e., the ‘single payer’ deception].

There is no other choice than to limit the damage now with a new party that will stay true to conservative principles. The results of the alternative are too horrible to contemplate.

The left legislates for secularism against Christianity and it’s one thing they are consistent on

The left legislates for secularism against Christianity and its one thing they are consistent on

On the surface, the left promotes a double standard regarding how business can offer services.  They support a right of the business that sides with Palestine over Israel, and the right of governments to do business with them.  On the other hand, they support laws that force business to have “birth control” in their health plan or make people provide a service to those they are uncomfortable with such as gay couples.  The libido is far more important than your convictions or conscience coupled with the left’s push for population control.

The Stream’s Rachel Alexander scratches the surface to show that what this is really about, is finishing off what famed leftist humanist John J. Dumphy called “the rotting corpse of Christianity.”  That alone makes the left consistent with their agenda and long-term goals.  Those words that Dumphy used were not out of sarcasm, they were out of hated and are a declaration of war against Christ and his body of believers.

The Left’s Hypocrisy on States Regulating Freedom of Expression of Businesses

https://stream.org/lefts-hypocrisy-on-states-regulating-freedom-of-expression-businesses/?utm_source=Newsfeed&utm_medium=Facebook&utm_term=Original+Content&utm_content=Left-11-16-2017Should businesses have a right to express their views and practice them accordingly? The left says yes — and no. They say, “It depends.” Liberals tend to say yes when the business takes a position they agree with. They say no if the business takes a viewpoint they disagree with.

In the first case, the left stands for free speech and the first amendment. In the second, the left happily uses state power to curtail the business’s freedom of expression.

There is a rise in targeting Christian businesses.
