Convention 2012 !!
A GRIDLOCK OF FACT AND FICTION - The call for
a constitutional Convention (Con-Con) is on the march throughout this country;
it is armed and it is dangerous.
Effort to Dismantle Our Constitution
A history, past and current, outlining the
ongoing effort by the International financial powers to open the Constitution
in order to impose their radical changes. Their delivery system is mainly
deceived and uninformed state legislators. The perpetrators and their minions
know well what they are doing.
for the Newstates of America
In the event you would be inclined to dismiss
the relevance of the proposed new constitution, bear in mind that it is the
product of a tax-exempt think-tank which took ten years, $25,000,000.00 and
the collaboration of over one-hundred like-minded individuals. "It would
be folly to believe this investment is intended to be merely an exercise
in political theory. The frightening reality is, the planners are serious
in their efforts to impose a new constitution upon the people of America
as we enter the 21st Century."
— Col. Arch Roberts, Committee to Restore the Constitution

14th Amendment to the United States Constitution is and should be held to
be ineffective, invalid, null, void, and unconstitutional for the following
Justice Burger on the Constitutional
"I have also repeatedly given my opinion that there is no effective way
to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The convention
could make its own rules and set its own agenda."

"First let me say that I hope everyone sees the critical need to head
off both Con-Con attempts (the state-by-state Con-Con resolution effort and
the COS). As far as strategies are concerned, we should first make a quick
analysis of the playing field."
With Standing Calls for a Con Con
32 of 34 states necessary have standing calls
for a Constitutional Convention. Although 3 states have rescinded their calls
(Florida, Louisiana, Alabama) the rescissions have not been challenged in

A brief history of failed attempts at a
Constitutional Convention. Why a COS? Why legislators almost fell for
COS to Call for
a Constitutional Convention
"... The Texas resolution was the only one
which admitted the COS delegates intended to call for a Constitutional Convention
Governor Mike Leavitt's Position on COS
"... our national government... is outdated
and old fashioned. It is not suited for the fast-paced, high-tech, global
marketplace we are entering. There is a much better way."
Gov. Leavitt to Public Debate on COS
Press Release: 5-26-1995, Gov. Leavitt and
Sen. Duke challenged to debate COS
Press Release: 6-6-1995, Duke accepts; no word from Leavitt
CDR Second Letter
"... Let's get all the cards — face up
— on the table, Governor, and perhaps we'll discover we are all in
agreement. LaVar Webb has called grass roots opposition "extreme right wing
whackos". We aren't. We don't hate our government. We love our country and
hate what is happening. Can we assume you feel the same?"
Responds to CDR Debate Challenge
"I am not interested in confrontation,
grandstanding or putting on a show for the media... It is the end result
that is important here, not how we get to it... Therefore, I am not interested
in debating Senator Duke... It is for these reasons that I respectfully decline
your invitation to debate."
CDR Open Letter
to Governor Leavitt
"...We suggest the opposition was unexpected
because the first states passed the empowering resolution through so quickly
- no public hearings, no information to legislators - just a quick voice
vote before their constituents knew anything about it - a little 'arm twisting
and sticking necks out by promising memberships in the CSG' to get the votes.
(One would think those tactics would embarrass you.)..."
Concerns About COS
"... As professors of constitutional law at
the Florida State University College of Law, we are extremely troubled by
the possibility that this proposed Conference could be construed as an
application for a constitutional convention under Article V of the U. S.
Constitution. Such a convention could evolve into a wholesale assault on
our Constitution, and lead to proposals for destroying our present constitutional
Attorney Lapiscopo to Rep. Tim Stine
"... I do not believe it is necessary for state
legislatures to pass resolutions sanctioning any such meeting and I am concerned
about convening a constitutional convention... if the Committee would like
further testimony prior to sending the resolution to the floor for a vote,
then I will make myself available to the committee by telephone conference
Headlund Opposes Massachusetts COS Participation
Press Release: 4-18-1995 - "... My biggest
concern is that there is no guarantee that the conference will not decide
to become a Constitutional Convention, and if that happens there will be
no force to stop it," concluded Hedlund.
Headlund Letter to Colleagues - COS Warning
"... evidence suggests it is a blatant attempt
to consolidate the authority of the states in a convention for making fundamental
changes to our form of government. In fact, a rewrite of the Tenth amendment
is one of the stated goals of the COS."
Endorsing the COS
"NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the American
Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a membership organization representing
both Republican and Democratic state legislators, endorses the concept of
the Conference of the States."
Oregon State Senator
Shannon - On Radio
"... the day that it came out of committee
[senator] Rod Johnson himself came to me and said, 'Marilyn, I'm so excited.
It came out of committee today and we have all of the mechanisms in place
to call for a Con-Con if they don't listen to us'."
Secret CSG Meeting
"... This guy from Massachusetts... said they're
masters of 'sleight-of-hand'... and that's how they intend to pursue the
resolution in Massachusetts. ... this woman down at the other end of the
table piped up and said they really want to get this through without hearings,
just a quick voice vote, before anybody got wind of it..." (State Rep. Joan
Menard - COS Steering Committee)
"Mr. BROWN (for himself and Mr. [Jesse] Helms)
submitted the following resolution;... Resolved, That Congress hereby petitions
the several States of the United States of America to convene a Conference
of the States and that such States then consider whether it is necessary
for the States to convene a Constitutional Convention...
