Blast Alert against North Carolina H 233 (COS) – Probable Vote Wednesday!!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I urge you to ask yourself one question: If the Convention of States is a valid path forward, why are its supporters working to pass it in the middle of the night? Remember the Constitutional Convention was called to address issues in the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. The “Perpetual Union” was dissolved and a new government drawn up under our existing Constitution. I cannot imagine what will happen if a Convention of States was held under the current lawless state of our union. The Deep State does not even recognize the Constitution that they want to “fix”.

David DeGerolamo


From Publius Huldah:

The Convention of States Project’s (COS’s) application for an Article V convention passed a North Carolina committee on March 31 in a sneaky maneuver. The committee that was supposed to hear COS was switched, and the time moved forward at the last minute, making it difficult for anyone on our side to prepare.  Now Mark Meckler is headed back to North Carolina for a rally on Wed. April 21, and the COS application is pending in the Rules committee which sets the House agenda for debate and vote. It appears the rally is coordinated with a Rules committee vote which looks to be very close. If passed, the full House could vote in a heartbeat.   Here is the Article V convention application (A5C) in the North Carolina House:  

 H233 (COS): pending in the committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House since March 4; expected committee vote on April 21 at 10:00 am (Eastern).

The Phony Petitions & Polls” flyer describes the petitions & polls used by the convention lobby to sway legislators, rather than measure true voter opinion. COS continually showcases misleading statistics to convince legislators that their constituents are demanding a “convention of states.”

Meckler often testifies as to how many thousands of people in a state have signed a petition in support of COS. And he has trumpeted polls showing evidence of overwhelming support. But COS polls measure opinion about only the subject of the application. Neither the polls nor petitions touch on the the little-known dangers or true purpose of a convention. Legislators need to know that the demand for a convention is an illusion. 

COS Is Waging a War on Semantics

This ARTICLE explains how COS uses “Newspeak” to manipulate people into believing that the convention provided for by Article V is really just a “convention of states” that is controlled from start to finish by State Legislatures, and not a “constitutional convention.” In hearings and legislative chambers across the country, COS is waging a war on semantics, and some legislators buy into it.

Let North Carolina Representatives know, in your own words, that we’re likely to lose our Constitution should Congress call an Article V convention. If you’d like, choose an argument off one of these links (flyers attached also): 

The “Declaration of Independence” flyer shows why Delegates to a convention have the power to throw off the Constitution we have and set up a new one with a new and easier mode of ratification. 

The “False and Reckless Assurances” flyer shows that COS’s “false” and “reckless in the extreme” assurances are contradicted by the Constitution and the Report of the Congressional Research Service. This flyer is particularly relevant to Congress being in charge of the Call—not state legislatures.       

How to get a new Constitution under the pretext of proposing amendments” shows that the Framers understood that an A5C could be used to replace our Constitution–and that’s how it’s being used today!   

The “Brilliant Men” flyer shows that James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, four US Supreme Court Justices, and other jurists and scholars warn that Delegates to an A5C can’t be controlled.  

Democrats might be interested in this series of articles from Common Cause showing the dangers of an Article V convention.     

Let’s go get ’em!     

Please write these 120 members of the North Carolina House, and ask them to VOTE “No” on H 233 and any other applications asking Congress to call an Article V convention: 

 Copy the addresses below as a block into “BCC,” & copy your own address into the “To” box; and place the bill # and description  (i.e. Art. V convention) on the subject line.
