An Article V Convention of States equals a Constitutional Convention that will put our existing Bill of Rights in jeopardy. An Article V Constitutional Convention is NOT a conservative movement, and we believe it WILL be misused. This movement is supported by both the Left AND the Right. Click_here to see all the different groups who are supporting a Constitutional Convention.
One supporter of a Constitutional Convention is billionaire George Soros, Chairman of Soros Fund Management and Chairman & Founder of Open Society Foundation. He has VOWED to replace the U.S. Constitution by year 2020 and is in a position to take advantage of a convention to do so. Thus, we have Constitution 2020 movement, as mentioned in our previous article.
Now you see why Secure Arkansas does NOT stand either on the right or left! BOTH sides can be wrong on an issue and work together against us. This is what is happening right now with this Article V convention.
Remember, it is the ruling elite/corporate America (Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Insurance, et al) who are calling for an Article V Amendment Convention/Con Con! …the majority of which belong to American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Many of these corporate members are big financial donors to our legislators’ campaign funds. In a future article, we will expose the so-called “conservative” legislators who are accepting these campaign donations from ALEC corporate members.
With these donations come a price. Since ALEC is sponsoring an Article V Constitutional Convention, do you think that our legislators are being bribed?
A LOT of BIG money has been distributed via Corporate America/the Ruling Elite to tear our U.S. Constitution apart! Article V is the current means by which the ruling elite has chosen… It’s a very dangerous path!
The Convention of States (COS) is a misinformed group pushing for an Article V Constitutional Convention. They are composed mostly of lawyers giving bad advice that is not supported by the U.S. Constitution or by U.S. Code. This is all supported by big Corporate business along with ALEC. It appears that many of them are not misled or innocent but that they are willfully deceiving the general public and state and national leaders in order to promote and complete their globalist agenda via an Article V Constitutional Convention.
On the Convention of States (COS) website, all one can see is lot of rambling statements with very little, if any, credible documents to support their claims. Where are the COS source documents making their case? Making a statement or a claim but not supporting it is very deceitful. They quote themselves, and it all appears to be an incestuous, circular fallacy. It is difficult (and disappointing) to believe that so many of our conservative legislators have bought into this dishonest act of promoting an Article V Constitutional Convention (Con-Con).
From COS’s own website, they quote and reference Kris Anne Hall, an attorney who teaches Constitutional Law. In an article that she wrote entitled Amending the 2nd Amendment from January 13, 2017, her position was stated as follows:
“There is good news and bad news. Article V of the Constitution establishes a mechanism for the Constitution to be amended. Any amendment must be approved by 3/4 of the States in the Union. The bad news is that it is possible through this mechanism to amend the 2nd Amendment. The good news is that your Right to Keep and Bear Arms is not [granted] to you by the Constitution, the government, or by any person. Your Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a Natural Right and cannot be taken away.” [emphasis ours]
While we agree with her statement, it seems that she doesn’t understand something: the global governments of the world don’t respect Natural Rights. They have their OWN definition of “rights”, including human rights.
So, what IS the agenda? What’s the underlying motive? Do you think that the reason for the big push for a Article V Convention might be to replace our Constitution in order to usher in a New World Order? Our U.S. Constitution is standing in the way of a complete global agenda, and the U.N. Agenda does not tolerate average Americans as gun owners!
We will be looking at the U.S. Code Title 2. and State Department Document 7277, (both the same but worded differently) but before we do, we need to look at Public Law 87-297 (dated 9/26/1961). The title of this Public Law is: Arms Control and Disarmament Act.
Section 2 (Purpose) of Public Law 87-297 states:
It is the purpose of this Act to provide impetus toward this goal by creating a new agency of peace to deal with the problem of reduction and control of armaments looking toward ultimate world disarmament.
The United Nations Peacekeeping site says this:
Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.
So you see, this is not new and has been supported by both Democrats and Republicans. The elitists must replace our Constitution in order to get rid of our guns (“armaments”). Under Title 22, Foreign Relations and Intercourse, you’ll see Sections 2551, 2552, 2571 & 2573 which address the U.S. government’s agenda (which is in compliance with U.N. goals) toward total disarmament of the public.
IN SECTION 2551, you will find the Statement of Purpose, which is to make the world free from scourge of war and the danger and burdens of armaments; in which the use of force has been subordinated to the rule of law, and in which international adjustments to a changing world are achieved peacefully.
IN SECTION 2552, you will find a definition of what the U. S. Government means by the term “disarmament”. It reads:
(a) The terms “arms control” and “disarmament” mean the identification, verification, inspection, limitation, control, reduction, or elimination, of armed forces and armaments of all kinds under international agreement including the necessary steps taken under such an agreement to establish an effective system of international control, or to create and strengthen international organizations for the maintenance of peace.
IN SECTION 2571, you will find the Director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency is authorized and directed, under the direction of the president, to achieve a long list of goals numbered from (a) through (m) which massively diminishes our defense capabilities, ravages our security, and obliterates our sovereignty. Elimination of armed forces and armaments is listed twice in this section. It also includes the requirement for elimination of conventional weapons. As we witness the conduct of public officials as they encroach upon the unalienable right of the people to keep and bear arms, and witness the disregard for the non-repealable status of the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights, it gives proof of the true intent behind the terms “conventional weapons“, and “general and complete disarmament”. The pursuit is for total and complete disarmament of the United States and its people, and for the surrender of U.S. sovereignty to international communist dominated organizations. State Department Publication 7277 makes these facts indisputable. (Keep reading. We address that below.)
IN SECTION 2573, you will find “Policy Formation.” It contains two prohibitions; one states: “No action shall be taken pursuant to this chapter or any other Act that would obligate the United States to reduce or limit the Armed Forces or armaments of the United States in a militarily significant manner, except pursuant to the treaty-making power of the President, or unless authorized by the enactment of further legislation by the Congress of the United States. Realize that the U.S. president and the Congress hold the power to activate their complete disarmament goals! Then it will be permissible for the United States to reduce or eliminate Armed Forces and armaments, and to prohibit individuals from the acquisition, possession, or use of firearms.
The United Nations (U.N.) and the U.S. State Department have been trying to do away with our 2nd Amendment for a long, long time. In 1961, during the Nixon administration,State Department Document 7277 “Freedom from War” was created which calls for complete disarmament.
State Department Document 7277 of 1961 provides for progressive disarmament steps to take place in three stages and for the simultaneous strengthening of international institutions. This would be the strengthening of the U.N. Peacekeeping Forces. (Good-bye 2nd Amendment!) Do you think that this might be why so many groups and organizations are calling for an Article V Constitutional Convention?
Whether it be a national leader or whoever speaks of “peace”, “freedom”, “a safer world”, and “a more peaceful world”…it is the 1961 General and Complete Disarmament Law to which they could be referring.
We are in Stage III of the disarmament, and this ties directly in with the U.N. goals of a One World Government.
STAGE III (Final Stage of DISARMAMENT!) The information below is taken directly from the State Department Document 7277 “Freedom from War” — from 56 YEARS AGO:
By the time Stage III has been completed, the confidence produced through a verified disarmament program, the acceptance of rules of peaceful international behavior, and the development of strengthened international peace-keeping processes within the framework of the U.N. should have reached a point where the states of the world can move forward to Stage III. In Stage III, progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force and all international disputes would be settled according to the agreed principles of international conduct.
The progressive steps to be taken during the final phase of the disarmament program would be directed toward the attainment of a world in which:
(a) States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N Peace Force.
(b) The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
(c) The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes.
(d) The peacekeeping capabilities of the United Nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world. [emphasis ours]
Do you actually TRUST the current politicians promoting this issue of an Article V Convention? Talk about being a risky process! You can bet that in the near future, with this move, we will not be allowed to own guns, and they will be confiscated, just like in other countries! Look at what happened in Australia:
Don’t forget — Hillary Clinton made gun control part of her campaign for her run for the White House, and she supports Australian-style gun control as a model to use here in the United States. Want to hear more about that? Watch this video in which Australia’s Senator David Leyonhjelm, a gun ownership supporter, says this:
“In fact, we had a blip UP in general violence AFTER the gun bans. The massive so-called buy back was a “confiscation with compensation” program. Semi-automatic rifles and shot guns and pump action shotguns were essentially prohibited. It also removed the right to own a gun in ANY state in Australia for self defense. WE ARE A NATION OF VICTIMS. If you cannot own a gun for self defense, doesn’t matter what the circumstance is, doesn’t matter how big the threat — you CANNOT defend yourself. The CRIMINALS still have plenty of guns. There’s no shortage of guns. There’s a very vigorous black market for guns, so it’s really not made the slightest bit of difference. If you want a gun, you can get one. Look at what Australia did: it’s a defenseless country these days…”
As you can see, BOTH political parties will work toward U.N. goals of disarmament, and this involves eradicating and replacing our U.S. Constitution!
There is a long established plan in place to replace our existing Constitution with a “proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America“ (noted in the book THE EMERGING CONSTITUTION by Rexford G. Tugwell published in 1974, which has 671 pages). With this Constitution for the Newstates of America, there are no RIGHTS – and no Bill of Rights, either. Everything becomes a privilege. These U.N. Agenda 21/Sustainable Development policies are being implemented locally through our state legislation. The statement in the Declaration of Independence: “Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government” should scare anyone that is thinking that a Con-Con is safe. This is one of the methods we believe will be used to replace the existing Constitution with the proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America.
The following are excerpts from the proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America:
Rights and Responsibilities
SECTION 1. Freedom of expression, of communication, of movement, of assembly, or of petition shall not be abridged except in declared emergency.
SECTION 8. The practice of religion shall be privileged; but no religion shall be imposed by some on others, and none shall have public support.
SECTION 8. There shall be a responsibility to avoid violence and to keep the peace; for this reason the bearing of arms or the possession of lethal weapons shall be confined to the police, members of the armed forces, and those licensed under law.
SECTION 10. Those who cannot contribute to productivity shall be entitled to a share of the national product; but distribution shall be fair and the total may not exceed the amount for this purpose held in the National Sharing Fund.
In closing, when looking at a Con Con/Article V, we see no rules or guidelines, and there is no clear way to safely proceed. An Article V is not just one single convention but an entire process. The Convention of States argues that the states must agree on an agenda, but the word “agenda” is nowhere mentioned in Article V, and there is NO WAY TO LIMIT IT!
An important point also comes from the Necessary and Proper Clause in Article 1 of the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION regarding how the delegates are chosen:
Article I, §8, clause 17 (last clause) says:
“THE CONGRESS SHALL HAVE POWER“
… “TO MAKE ALL LAWS WHICH SHALL BE NECESSARY AND PROPER FOR CARRYING INTO EXECUTION THE FOREGOING POWERS, AND ALL OTHER POWERS VESTED BY THIS CONSTITUTION IN THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, OR IN ANY DEPARTMENT OR OFFICER THEREOF.”
How Does the Necessary and Proper Clause APPLY to Article V?
Legislators, pay attention! Article V delegates to Congress the power to “call” the convention. The necessary and proper clause (Article I, §8, clause 17) delegates to Congress the power to make all laws necessary and proper to carry out its power to “call” the convention.
All the States can do is call for an Article V Amendment Convention (Con-Con), and after that, Congress takes over, and the states are done! Period! (See Article I, §8, clause 17)
Legislators, if you REALLY understood what is going on, you wouldn’t support an Amendment V Convention (Con-Con)!
Remember, dear reader, it is the ruling elite/corporate America (Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Insurance, et al) who are calling for an Article V Amendment Convention/Con Con! This proposed convention is putting us on a very slippery slope!
