I'm Yelling from Canada

Something REALLY Hinky is going on in your legislature

You've got Dems who are PUSHING DANGEROUS #ConCon Legislation that other states are WISELY dropping like Hot Potatoes

Look at this Committee Report ‼️
#NoConCon
Link to #HI Senate Judiciary Committee Report on resolution #SCR131
capitol.hawaii.gov/session2019/Co…

🚨It was adopted despite opposition from 16 Orgs; including @ACLU, @CommonCause @IndivisibleHI AND testimony of a HI Attorney General

Possibly this AG? 👇
Situation in #HI so disturbs me that I'm writing this thread on a Friday Night!

Here's Legiscan pg showing #SCR131

Note Action: One Day Notice 04-01-19

No amt of searching HI legislative pages provided a def'n of what this means

My guess - it goes to Senate for vote Apr 1

There are 2 separate but similar GOP efforts to re-write the US Constitution: (1) the Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) Task Force; & (2) the more recent Convention of States project, which seeks a BBA & undefined decimation of the federal govt. They’re both scary AF. #NoConCon 1/
3/ Hopefully, the midterms threw these groups off their game, but I’ve lost track.

All eyes on Georgia. Republicans are doing there what they want to do everywhere: banning abortions > 6 weeks, installing new unauditable ballot marking devices (& misleadingly calling them “paper ballot” systems), & joining the Religious Right’s Convention of States project. 1/
The Convention of States Project seeks to call an Article V Convention to amend the US Constitution. Is it a coincidence that they want unauditable voting systems? I don’t know but it shld scare the hell out of Democrats. It certainly does me. #HandMarkedPaperBallots #NoConCon 2/

🔥🌊#DEMOCRATS Serving in State Legislatures🌊🔥

Please read this thread to see why you MUST not vote for any constitutional convention resolutions!

🐺No subject is safe, including left wing causes that all #Democrats favor. You are being duped w/ these resolutions (links 👇).
🐺Language used by Wolf PAC is meant to tempt Democrats, but Constitutional Conventions are extremely dangerous to anyone whose last name isn’t KOCH.

Please don't open Pandora's Box.

#UnKochAmerica
#NoConCon4Anything
ℹ Language now used in Resolutions used to lure #Democrats include:

🐺Free & Fair Elections
🐺Repeal Citizens United
🐺Election Integrity
🐺Limits on Political Contributions & Expenditures
🐺“Limited” Convention

Why are all calls for Constitutional Conventions dangerous?

Dem Legislators in CT DE IA MD ME MO NM NY OR VA WA

🔥PLEASE IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAW YOUR RESOLUTIONS calling for a #ConventionOfStates "for purposes of overturning Supreme Courts Citizens United Ruling"🔥

#HR1 is addressing this issue by SAFELY

A Dangerous #COS is NOT REQUIRED
By "Safely" I mean using the method of obtaining 2/3 votes in Congress

NOT by opening the Constitution up to a complete rewrite; a plan that's been financed and pushed by Dark Money AstroTurf grps for years now

Do not play into their hands
#NoConCon

The Religious Right behind this stealth drive is VERY close to achieving their goal

They must be prevented AT ALL COSTS

It may be possible for #ConCon/#COS calls for dif amendments to be combined

🔥We cannot afford to have ANY COS calls on the table

Dear @HillaryClinton,
I'm appealing directly to you for help in stopping the stealth mission to Rewrite the Constitution.

As of today, Feb 9/19, there are 52 resolutions in 23 state legislatures for an Article V Convention of States (COS). Of these,13 are D sponsored & 8 R+D!
It was because of a televised speech you gave years ago that I heard about GOP plans for a COS, and never forgot your warning.

This is significant, as I'm a CDN living in Canada and the terrifying implications of this were crystal clear to me.
What's more horrifying however, is:

How close GOP is to realising their goal
How Dems are playing right into their plans
How MSM is not covering this
And
How few Americans know it's happening!

🌊🗳️Overview of the Democratic positions after the 2018 Blue Wave Elections. Heading into the 2018 Election, the Senate had a Republican majority. There were 51 Republicans plus the Vice President, 47 Democrats and 2 Independents that caucus with the Democrats so basically 51-49.
🔷As of January 3, 2019, The Republicans now have 52 seats plus the Vice President. and the Democrats have 45 seats and 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats.

🏛️51 required for majority
🏛️60 required for 3/5
🏛️67 required for 2/3

👁️BEFORE VS. AFTER
*⃣There was one vacancy, but the Republican Arizona Governor appointed fellow Republican Martha McSally, who took office on January 3, 2019. So the Senate is basically 53-47, in favor of the GOP.

🕳️The vacancy is shown as red in the "after" configuration.👆

“The official propaganda would have you believe that the drive behind this ghastly idea [for a Constitutional Convention aka “Convention of States”] comes from a deep and bipartisan urge by Normal Americans to Get Things Done...” #Mercers #NoConCon google.com/amp/s/www.esqu…. 1/
2/ “This unmitigated crapola” from the Convention of States crowd “is belied not only by the people and money behind the drive, but also by the politicians who have signed aboard.”
3/ “The fact that the people behind the push for the convention very carefully throw into the fog machine is that ... a similar call went out in 1957, in the immediate aftermath of Brown v. Board of Education...This is reactionary politics on afterburners.”

Um, unless you want an Article V Convention of States to re-write the U.S. Constitution (a Koch-funded effort), you might want to contact the 6 WI counties that have installed cellular modems and insist that they be removed. 1/
Here is the Thread w/ contact info. and a proposed script for the 6 Wisconsin counties (including WI's 3 most populous) that have installed cellular modems. I initially directed it to Wisconsin voters, but have changed my mind bc this affects ALL of us. 2/
Pls let me know if you can call and/or email these 6 counties and the Wisconsin Election Commission to demand removal of the cellular modems. Thanks! #ProtectOurVotes #noconcon 3/

@RockPaper_Sista @willfightevil @Frimmmy @wrongestwrong @SarahSheKicks2 @RinChupeco For 40+ years the #KochBrothers have been buying politicians at state and fed level. Mostly republicans but there are dems who've taken a bite of the koolaid pie.

/1/ Is it not incumbant on those of us who know what a threat the #Kochs pose to America, and potentially all democracies, to find some way to let people know?
/2/ Trump is a real danger. There is absolutely no doubting that. But the true head of this snake lies squarely in the lap of the alt-right contract writers - those planning out the shit show and paying our politicians and media to make it happen.
/3/ If this were a disease, Trump would be the acute form while the alt-right would be chronic. We get rid of Trump and the chronic simply flare up another accute case as they hone in on our constitution. #NoConCon

(Short version) What is a #ConCon? It is a Constitutional Convention made possible by a little known phrase in The Constitution which explains how to pass amendments.
The first way you know because our country has passed an amendment 27 times, the first 10 of which are together known as the Bill of Rights. Amendments that have passed include: 1: Freedom of Religion, speech, freedom of the press; 2: The Right to keep and bear arms;...
5. The right to due process (all in the Bill of Rights); 13. Abolishes slavery; 17. Election of U.S. Senators by popular vote; 19. Women’s right to vote; 24. Prohibits revocation of voting rights due to nonpayment of poll or any other tax;

Please include #Midterms2018 - our country is literally bathed in #KochBrothers political lackeys on all trifecta levels.
Through #ALEC, they are pushing for a Convention of States. They mean to radically alter or even rewrite the #COTUS 1/
The link below is a few months old. The "Balanced Budget Amendment" drive currently has 28 states. Just 7 states shy of the 35 required to compell congress to enact an #ArticleV #COS 2/
Additionally the landscape is a minefield of hackable voting machines.
