Article V Convention of the States = Constitutional Convention

February 10, 2014

JBS CEO Art Thompson’s weekly news video update for February 10 – 16, 2014.

In this week’s analysis behind the news video, JBS CEO Art Thompson discusses how the New York Times is still pushing the idea that our winters are becoming more mild with less snow due to global warming; how our retirement savings and 401k plans are in danger of being confiscated; how many state bills applying to Congress for an Article V convention refer to such a convention as a “constitutional convention,” even though leading Article V convention proponents tell us that they are definitely not asking for a “constitutional convention”; how calls for an Article V convention in Maryland and Iowa include language to make our nation a “democracy,” even though that word is not to be found in the U.S. Constitution or any of the 50 state constitutions; and how an international meeting is scheduled for April to discuss global rules for privacy on the Internet.
