I'm Yelling from Canada

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

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 โ€ผ๏ธ
#NoConCon
Link to #HI Senate Judiciary Committee Report on resolution #SCR131
capitol.hawaii.gov/session2019/Coโ€ฆ

๐ŸšจIt was adopted despite opposition from 16 Orgs; including @ACLU, @CommonCause @IndivisibleHI AND testimony of a HI Attorney General

Possibly this AG? ๐Ÿ‘‡
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

GOOD MORNING #RESISTERS! ๐Ÿ˜บ

Who's ready to kick some #ConCon Butt like we did last year!?

In 2018 only 1 #AstroTurf grps passed rslns calling for #ConventionOfStates

#COSProject: 0
#WolfPAC: 0
#BBATaskForce: 0
#USTermLimits: 2

#NoConCon
In fact we trounced these grps so hard in 2018 they've come out swinging 2019

They're RABIDLY pushing #ConventionOfStates

#COSProject has already passed 2 (AR UT)

AND 2 being RAMMED thru MS & KS ๐Ÿšจ

2nd pg #NoConConTracker - see 1st pg for more info ๐Ÿ‘‡
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/dโ€ฆ
#USTermLimits emboldened by their Victories in 2018 are pushing HARD to get more #ConventionOfStates rslns passed this year

๐Ÿšจ 2 are slated for FINAL VOTE - They're at FINISH LINE in #AZ & #GA

WE MUST PREVENT ANOTHER WIN for ANY of these grps

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

๐Ÿ”ฅPLEASE IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAW YOUR RESOLUTIONS calling for a #ConventionOfStates "for purposes of overturning Supreme Courts Citizens United Ruling"๐Ÿ”ฅ

#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

๐Ÿ”ฅWe 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!

Calling on ALL #Resisters ๐Ÿ“ข

Are you Ready to TURN UP THE HEAT on this Treasonous Dictatorship? ๐Ÿ’ช

Are you ready to use the most effective tactics employed by successful #CivilResistance Movements in democratic countries?

ARE YOU READY TO WIN? โœŠ

If so PLEASE ENTER ๐Ÿ‘‡
Study of successful #NonviolentCivilResistance mvmts use a combination of 3 tactics๐Ÿ‘‡

"The Tea Party showed us how much
power can be leveraged when all 3 are used at
once. If hundreds of thousands of people
contribute in this way, Trump and the
Republicans wonโ€™t stand a chance."
It's ESSENTIAL to support ALL 3 tactics

Like a stool w/3 legs-ALL ARE REQIRED

In our #Resistance mvmt 2nd two tactics are STRONGLY supported (i.e. pressuring elected officials and promoting dire importance of voting โœŠ

It's time to beef up support for Protests ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ‘Š

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.
