Squash The Con-Con Network

with 3 comments


2016 Promises to be a very active year for Con-Con battles across the United States. The magic number necessary for a Convention call is 34 state applications. As of this writing there are 27 states with an active call on the books. Some of these active calls are very old. Take Pennsylvania for instance; the last active call by Pennsylvania was in 1979 yet the Con-Con advocates want to count that in the total towards the necessary 34. The con-con advocates are leaving nothing to chance, however, as they routinely get newer calls introduced in those states in an effort to update the calls and remediate any potential challenges down the road.

2016-Con-Con-Map

So this is where the battle stands in PA:

#1. :  HR 374  & SR 170, HR 63, HR 378 Are three new pieces of legislation being considered in Pennsylvania during the 2015-2016 legislative session. There may be more so it is important to oppose all resolutions which invoke a “Convention pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of the United States“.

#2: There are 4 Active calls dating back to 1943. That’s right, 1943. There are no end dates on these resolutions so it is impossible to know what the Congress would do with regard to these. It would seem logical that a convention call should require a consensus of current constituents in all 34 states at one-time, however, there are no assurances with regard to this unused process. We’re blazing new ground here.

YEAR RESOLUTION SUBJECT
1943 1943 PA Article V Con- Con application Unconditional Federal Public Funds
1943 1943 PA Article V Con- Con application Repeal of 16th Amendment
1978 1978 PA Article V Con- Con application Right to Life (Vetoed?)
1979 1979 PA Article V Con- Con application Balanced Budget Amendment

This is where membership in a national organization is extremely helpful. You see, if Pennsylvania JBS members concentrate on opposing the con-con network in Pennsylvania, they can be assured that members in the other states will do so as well. This is at least the third iteration of this battle over the last 50 years and the con-con network has failed every time.  The battle must be contested in every state to be sure the magic number 34 is not attained.

Now, the JBS needs the help of concerned citizens of Pennsylvania. Member or not, your freedom hangs in the balance and our success will allow you and your loved-ones to enjoy the protections afforded the American People by the Bill of Rights.

Here’s what needs to be done.

#1. We need to continue to oppose all con-con calls currently under consideration. Here is a letter I penned to accomplish this. Simply download this letter. Change the items in red to personalize it and send it to your local officials and the State Government Committee of the General Assembly and the Senate. Links are provided for easy lookup of those needed to be contacted.

#2. Ask you local representative or senator to have the 4 ancient active calls repealed. Here Is a packet of information to assist you in that endeavor along with a sample resolution, the 4 outstanding calls and sample rescissions in several other states.

#3. Use this petition to urge Pennsylvania Legislators to repeal the 4 ancient and active calls for a con-con: http://libertyactioncenter.com/campaign/56a52dc8-b7d4-4587-ac7e-621a68ed8cac

#4. As a more permanent solution, we should advocate legislation that would require a moratorium clause be included in future resolutions and expire all resolutions not acted upon after 7 years of passage if no moratorium is placed within the resolution. The legislation should act retroactively upon outstanding, dormant resolutions. Having to address resolutions going back to 1943 is asinine. I will be following up on this possibility. Your advice or help in this is appreciated.

Supporting Our Heroes – Support Your Local Police

Support Your Local Police: Our Heroes In The Streets

20151021 Support Our Heroes Flyer

Don’t miss this important lecture !!! James Fitzgerald will discuss the current administration’s drive to assemble a national police force. Using federal and state grants, Washington and Harrisburg have encouraged local police department mergers, additional federal and state-run task forces, federal and state training & technical assistance programs, mitlitarization of our local police forces, and Local-DOJ cooperatives. Ladies & gentlemen: federal money always comes with federal strings attached.  Jim will shed some light on the many “strings” Washington is planning to foist on your local law enforcement agencies. As the power structure of your community police departments is transferred to bureaucrats in Washington, the people become more alienated from those who are charged with their protection. A national police force is a hallmark of tyrannies world-wide. The Department of Homeland Security would like nothing more than to control the officers on our streets. According to Rahm Emanuel, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Well the recent Ferguson and Baltimore unrest are the most recent crises being used to fuel the drive towards a police-state in America. If you think this assessment over-states the situation I invite you to investigate the White House Initiatives listed below.

Jim will help you to see where these in-roads are at play. Learn about this problem, share the information with your friends and neighbors, support your local officers, pressure your local officials to refuse the money, maintain their independence from the regulations and maintain our freedom. The law should be your friend not something you fear. Click the image above for a downloadable flyer or click here.

This lecture is a volunteer run project in need of funding to offset the expenses associated with: room rental, lodging & meals, travel, printing, advertising etc. Please support this effort through a donation or advertise your business, group, blog, book, etc in our program booklet. Our fundraising appeal letter contains all the details on supporting the program. Please email me or contact the person sharing this with you if you need to purchase tickets in advance or wish to order flyers for distribution or display.

Musket Training at Camp Constitution

with 3 comments


During this year’s fabulous camp, this photo was taken during the musket training provided by “Patriot” Pastor Garrett Lear. Among others, Andrew Affleck, Junior Patriot Camper dressed in colonial uniform, fires a blank round with guidance & instruction by the good Pastor. The lesson included fundamental facts about the concept of a militia, the duty and requirements of those who served, the tools of the trade and inspirational dialog. This was an extremely popular event with the entire camp. Enjoy the video.
