Forget Russia -- Here's the real (totally ignored) story of 2020 election tampering

The media can't get enough of Russia-election-meddling stories. But as Mark Meckler explained in a recent article on Townhall.com, the real threat exists right in our backyard. 

We have an unelected, unaccountable administrative state that sees itself as separate from, and above the people.  Now, it is intervening to make sure it gets a government that will be amenable to its rule.

The latest example of this is a stunning statement from former Fed monetary Vice Chair William Dudley. He was quoted in Bloomberg saying that the Fed should help defeat Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

“Officials could state explicitly that the central bank won’t bail out an administration that keeps making bad choices on trade policy, making it abundantly clear that Trump will own the consequences of his actions,” Dudley said.

In other words, Dudley asserts that the central bank should do nothing to help the economy if it also helps Trump.  Where is America in this calculation?  Well, someone has to take a backseat to Dudley’s political positions, so it might as well be the financial well-being of the United States, right?  But there’s more.

“There’s even an argument that the election itself falls within the Fed’s purview,” Mr. Dudley said. “After all, Trump’s reelection arguably presents a threat to the U.S. and global economy, to the Fed’s independence and its ability to achieve its employment and inflation objectives. If the goal of monetary policy is to achieve the best long-term economic outcome, then Fed officials should consider how their decisions will affect the political outcome in 2020.”

The administrative state needs to be stopped, and a Convention of States is the best way to do it. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power and jurisdiction of federal agencies, and force Congress to do its job and approve the laws and policies under which Americans live.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
