    Who Says It's a Constitutional Convention? (Part 5)

    in US Government

    Our 5th, and final, installment of our examination of the history behind the phrase "Constitutional Convention", as it has been, and continues to be, applied to describe the Constitution's Article V State authorized amending mode, a "convention for proposing amendments".


    Last week we discussed the 1960's campaign, led by Senator Everett Dirksen, to promote an amending convention focused on overturning the apportionment rulings of an activist Supreme Court, and the responses from the likes of Senators Joseph Tydings, Robert Kennedy, William Proxmire, and Jacob Javits.  This final look at the fruits of the disinformation campaign will pick up with the influence of Senator Robert Kennedy and his political clout, the continuing presence of Yale Law Professor Charles Black, and culminating in the opposition successfully rebranding the phrase "convention to propose amendments" into the politically charged phrase "Constitutional Convention", as a means to counteract the Balanced Budget Amendment movement of the late 1970's/early 1980's.


    How has the prominence of the phrase affected the view of Article V?


    We'll spend a little bit of time with Convention of States news first.  And save some time for phone calls.


    "That Provident Article" is hosted by Convention of States Texas volunteer Paul Hodson, with the Convention of States since late 2013, a District Captain in Texas from February 2014 through November 2015, and now serving as Co-Director for the Convention of States Texas.

    Who Says It's a Constitutional Convention? (Part 4)

    in US Government

    Part 4 of our examination of the history behind the phrase "Constitutional Convention", as it has been, and continues to be, applied to describe the Constitution's Article V State authorized amending mode, a "convention for proposing amendments".


    We will pick up right where we left off last week, following the coordinated disinformation campaign from prominent progressive law professors, through the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, high-profile Senators like Joseph Tydings, Robert Kennedy, William Proxmire, and Jacob Javits.

    Who Says It's a Constitutional Convention? (Part 2)

    in US Government

    What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend than to learn some of the history behind the phrase "Constitutional Convention", as it has been, and continues to be, applied to describe the Constitution's Article V State authorized amending mode, a "convention for proposing amendments"?


    We'll spend some time referencing multiple original source documents from hundreds of Article V State applications for an amending convention, asking the questions why, and how, the description was changed to "Constitutional Convention", and begin discussion of the implications of this change in nomenclature.

    Who Says It's a Constitutional Convention? (Part 1)

    in US Government

    Today's episode will begin a series considering the phrase "Constitutional Convention", as it has been used for decades to describe the second mode of amending the Constitution as defined in Article V.  This will be an introductory presentation, laying some basic ground work, highlighting both opponents and proponents of an Article V "convention for proposing amendments" using the phrase "Constitutional Convention", and beginning the discussion regarding whether that is helpful, or harmful, to the understanding of the meaning of Article V.


    The news segment will be a bit longer, as we missed last week's news, so we have two weeks of news to cover.


    We will definitely allow time for phone calls as well.

    Is a constitutional convention the right move?

    in Politics Conservative

    Update: Due to the significance of the Georgia Senate vote in favor of a Convention of States, we plan to replay Tuesday's senate presentation, debate and vote in its entirety (C-SPAN style) in the first hour of this program. Discussion will follow.


    Are changes to the U.S. Constitution a necessary step to puttiing America back on its intended course?


    Advocates for new constitutional amendments says they're critical to address issues like term limits or skyrocketing national debt. 


    Opponents argue a constitutional convention could become a Pandora's box, unleashing unintended consquences, perhaps opening the door to scap our current 1789 Constitution.


    Good or bad, right or wroing, a resolution passed in the Georgia senate this week in support of a Convention of the States. If the Georgia House and governor go along, Georgia may become the first state to declare support for this rare and extreme meaure in U.S. governance.


    Don and Doug tackle this under-reported news on Friday's show. Extended portions of Tuesday's senate debate will be featured.  


    Serious stuff is in motion. Be informed. Connect the dots. Our program begins at 1:00 pm EST.

    Among lawmakers heard in the debate:


    18th Distric: Sen. Cecil Staton (R-Macon)

    Constitutional Convention - A danger to Liberty?

    in Politics

    Several organizations are contacting state legislators throughout the nation to promote resolutions petitioning Congress to convene a constitutional convention. This poses a great danger since leading constitutional scholars say that such a constitutional convention could not be restricted as to the amendments it could consider and propose. Such a convention could lead to proposing one or more amendments that could have a very harmful effect on our freedoms under the U.S. Constitution.
    Join our guests who are battling to educate people about the consequenses of the call for a Constitutional Convention.
