Convention of States is so crucial because the Washington Uniparty establishment is never going to correct itself, Jenna Ellis proclaimed on COS Live this week. They will never stop the weaponization of government against conservatives who want to exercise the right to speech, association, and religion.
Ellis is one of 19 indicted in Georgia for challenging the 2020 election on behalf of her client, former President Donald Trump. Ellis said it's an attempt to criminalize the practice of law and cause a chilling effect on the legal profession.
"If you represent a client that is disfavored by the deep state, then they're going to target you. They're going to target your profession, your credibility, your livelihood, and your bar license," she explained, adding that she's received over 50 bar complaints to try to destroy her legal career.
It's not a badge of honor when government agents and institutions are targeting you specifically, she described. It's a sickening example of the unconstitutional weaponization of government that is degrading our freedom and liberty in America.
"All of these things may have been prevented had we had a Convention of States earlier. So what can we prevent in the future by calling a Convention of States now?"
Article V is the best way we can ignore Washington, D.C. When a Convention of States is called, no one in Congress will have any say or any power over what state legislators do in terms of proposing amendments. They will also play absolutely no role in ratifying amendments, meaning they are irrelevant to the process that will restrict them directly.
"I sincerely believe the only path forward is not through the next election, it's through a Convention of States so that we can have really solid amendments."
In particular, Ellis believes an Article V convention would help make improvements to the federal judiciary by ensuring we acquire good judges. She believes term limits in both the federal judiciary as well as in all areas of federal government – not just elected officials but also the federal bureaucracy – will truly help drain the swamp. At the core of the issue, states need to become sovereign again.
"As I've continued to grow in my knowledge and understanding and genuine love of the Constitution, I've also grown in my advocacy in support of Convention of States because it truly is the best and only solution."
