Socialist AOC was created by Democratic Socialists of America, Brand New Congress, Justice Democrats, & George Soros's "The Media Consortium."
We all know AOC was promoted by DSA as an open, self-declared socialist.

This may be the group we are the most familiar with, but NOT the driving force behind this movement!

AOC was created mainly by Brand New Congress, Justice Democrats, & George Soros's "The Media Consortium." BNC, co-founded by Saikat Chakrabarti, began as 20 Bernie 2016 Staffers, trying to organize mini-Bernie canidates for 2018 Midterm primaries, for all Congressional districts.

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!

Right on cue #MarkMeckler reads line from script all #Koch bought actors & #GOP R work'g from
Summary:
GOP:
1 xplds deficit

Meckler:
3 claims only #BBA chance of Bcoming law ➡️#CoS ➡️#RewriteConstitution

One "small" problem...The reading of the script neglects to mention a couple of things.
Firstly, #BBA - #BalancedBudgetAmendment actually means gutting SS, Medicare, public education as a start.
#NoConCon #ProtectSocialSecurity #ProtectMedicare
2ndly,#ConventionOfStates or #ConstitutionalConvention wld allow Constitution 2B #Rewritten. There R NO safeguards in place 2 lmt #CoS 2 single topic or 2 determ what delegates R sent
A #Koch written constitution would end democracy in America
