Guest Speaker:  Mr. Art Bedford
TOPIC:  Convention of States Project

logo May 5th Monthly Meeting

www.ConventionOfStates.com

Purpose: The Convention of States (COS) Project was founded by Citizens for Self Governance for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C., is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people.

We have a solution that is as big as the problem.

Goal: The COS Project seeks to urge and empower state legislators to call a convention of states. The delegates at such a convention would have the power to propose amendments to the Constitution that would curb the abuses of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution gives them this power; the COS Project will give them an avenue through which they can use it. 

Plan: COS’s plan is twofold

1.  We want to call a convention for a particular subject rather than a particular amendment. Instead of calling a convention for a balanced budget amendment (though we are entirely supportive of such an amendment), we want to call a convention for the following purpose: Limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

2.   We believe the grassroots is the key to calling a successful convention. We would like to build a political operation in a minimum of 40 states, getting 100 people to volunteer in at least 75% of the state legislative districts. Only through the support of the American people will this project have a chance to succeed.



Although Citizens for Self Governance began the Convention of States Projects independently, their plan is a near-perfect match with Mark Levin’s bestselling book, The Liberty Amendments.

Congressman Louie Gohmert Takes On AG Holder!

Watch video to watch heated exchange between Congressman Louie Gohmert and AG Holder. WAY TO GO LOUIE!!!

On Tuesday, Rep. Louie Gohmert had a heated discussion with Attorney General Eric “Stonewall” Holder about the latter’s astonishing refusal to hand over documents pertaining to a variety of scandals, notably including the Obama Administration’s deadly gunrunning program, Operation Fast and Furious.  There is no way to defend what Holder has done – he’s a political operative sitting on a mountain of documents that our representatives in Congress have every right to see – so Holder didn’t even try.  He just got very, very angry that Congress keeps badgering him about it.

When Gohmert brought up the historic contempt citation voted against him by the House in 2012, Holder went ballistic.

“I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our Attorney General,” Gohmert prodded, “but it is important that we have proper oversight.”

“You don’t want to go there, buddy!” Holder snarled in response.  ”You don’t want to go there, OK?  You should not assume that uh that is not a big deal to me.  I think it was inappropriate, I think it was unjust, but never think that it was not a big deal to me.  Don’t ever think that.”   CONTINUE READING HERE…

WHAT IF AMERICA NEVER EXISTED?

WHAT IF AMERICA NEVER EXISTED?

AMERICA 300x250 Banner WHAT IF AMERICA NEVER EXISTED?

 

A NEW FILM BY DINESH DE’SOUZA TO BE RELEASED ON JULY 4TH

The movie, America, is a celebration of the uniqueness of America, and a powerful and moving rebuttal to America’s critics both at home and abroad. This film begins with a simple premise: What if America never existed? What if Columbus never landed in America because there was no America? In that case, Columbus would have kept going, and perhaps made it to his intended destination, India. How different history would have been if that occurred.

There is a crisis in America — an identity crisis. What does it mean to be an American? Is America moral or is America’s wealth a product of theft? We will also contrast the principles that built America, the spirit of 1776, with the ideas that are weakening America — the spirit of 1968.

Which America do you want?

REGAINING A LOVE FOR AMERICA
Written on Friday, March 28, 2014 by Heidi Parson

“Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families.” -Benjamin Rush

After watching the trailer for Dinesh D’Souza’s new film “America”, it caused my patriot heart to swell with pride and tears spilled from my eyes.  The trailer features great highlights in America’s history and seeing those incredible moments made me realize how much we have taken America for granted.

Can you fathom what the world would look like had America never been discovered by Columbus?  What if George Washington had been killed while leading his troops into battle during the Revolution War?  Or perhaps what we’d look like if Abraham Lincoln had lost the Civil War to the South?  Those are the type of scenarios D’Souza lays out in his upcoming film that is scheduled to be released in July.  The world would be a very different place had America never existed.

Can you fathom what the world would look like had America never been discovered by Columbus?  What if George Washington had been killed while leading his troops into battle during the Revolution War?  Or perhaps what we’d look like if Abraham Lincoln had lost the Civil War to the South?  Those are the type of scenarios D’Souza lays out in his upcoming film that is scheduled to be released in July.  The world would be a very different place had America never existed.

America has always been a beacon of freedom, hope and opportunity.  I have been blessed beyond comprehension to be born in America; which is a fact that most of us fail to appreciate.  Foreigners can see how incredible we are, and have been, but why don’t we see it?  I long for the patriotism Americans had in times gone by.  We should show pride in what the United States has accomplished throughout history, and not apologize for it.  In the critical moments of history since the 1940’s America has been the nation to look to as a savior, so to speak, and as a beacon of hope.  When America has intervened in the World Wars and the wars that followed, which country has always saved the day?  That’s right…America.

Let’s look at what the word “patriotism” means. The dictionary definition of “patriotism” is “devoted love, support, and defense of one’s country”, but I feel that patriotism is much more. The word “patriotism” evokes a feeling of responsibility and pride.  Be it a good time or a bad time in our nation, the country always needs you, so patriotism still matters and will always matter.  The spirit of patriotism keeps our country united; it brings people from different walks of life to work together to makes us a better, stronger and prosperous nation.

America is exceptional; it is special.  We are a nation of strength, ingenuity, intelligence, dedication, compassion, innovation and diversity.  Our accomplishments are something to be proud of and celebrate.  We owe it to the generations to come to not only fight to preserve our freedoms, but to also remember where those freedoms come from; God.  God has blessed America abundantly over the past 200 years.  Indeed, we have turned our back on Him, but He has blessed us with a nation that is too precious to let die.  Let us renew our love for America.  Let us wave the banner of freedom high for all to see.

“O beautiful for patriot dream

That sees beyond the years

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!

God shed His grace on thee,

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea.


TED CRUZ: STAND FOR LIBERTY

WATCH ENTIRE 2014 CPAC SPEECH BELOW:

The Tea Party Isn’t Dying-The GOP Establishment Is!

The death of the conservative revolution, the Tea Party, or whatever you call it, has not merely been greatly exaggerated. It’s been flat-out lied about.

It isn’t dead. It just changed, from a shoestring operation to one with real clout. And it’s well on its way to doing what it set out to do – arm-twist a flabby, comfortable GOP into fighting for conservative values instead of just talking about them at election time.

We conservatives have two very different opponents, opponents who sometimes operate in concert. After all, they both want us gone.

The first opponent is the left. They still call us the “Tea Party,” though we rarely use that term anymore. It’s fun to hear the liberals say it – it’s like listening to grandparents trying to sound cool. Yeah, those hepcats are sure hip with their cool jive, daddy-o.

Every day, the lefty punditry opines about the Tea Party’s death spiral. And every day, the Tea Party refuses to crash and burn.

TED CRUZ WINS BIG IN TEXAS
Ted Cruz showed just how powerful he is in his home state last night. Cruz endorsed 5 candidates. Four of the five won outright and the fifth is the heavy favorite going into a runoff. Cruz did not endorse in the Attorney General race in Texas, but he said some pretty glowing stuff about Ken Paxton. Read more…

Analysis:  Tea Party movement apparently wasn’t over after all…
Tuesday’s primary was supposed to be a measurement of the ongoing influence of the tea party movement in Texas. Or waning influence, if one was to believe recent national news reports. They described a political insurgency on the wane, with the movement’s best days behind it.
Texas Republican voters had other ideas. Read more…

Conservatives Win Big!
Tuesday night’s results made for a very good morning for conservatives in Texas. A few fast facts about last-night’s Republican primary:
