Camp Constitution’s Resources to Stop an Article V Convention

Since our inception, Camp Constitution has opposed an Article V Convention.  We have held outreach events and press conferences at  state houses providing legislators important information on the subject.  We have sponsored a speaking, and media tour for Robert Brown in Maine and New Hampshire. Camp Constitution’s director Hal Shurtleff, has conducted numerous presentations on the issue throughout the region.  We have  interviewed experts on the subject on our radio show including Andy Schlafly, Robert Brown, Publius Huldah, Tom DeWeese, David Super,  Bob Marshall, Richard Fry,  Shawn Meehan, Joe Wolverton, and Peter Boyce.  We have also have video interviews of Attorney and scholar John Eidsmoe, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America,  Zach Lautenschlager of the National Association of Gun Rights, former U.S. Senator Bob Smith, and  Maine State Rep Sheldon Hannington.         Camp Constitution Media was on hand to videotape presentations by Constitutional scholar  Edwin Vieira,  Alan Keyes,  Attorney Deborah Stevenson.  We also have a video of Cenk Uygur and Larry Lessig calling for a “runaway” convention, and  a video of left-wing law professor Meg Penrose calling for an Article V Convention to repeal the 2nd Amendment.

We have created a YouTube playlist with these interviews.

We also have a collection of audio interviews available as free downloads on our Podomatic page:  https://shurtleffhal.podomatic.com/

 

Our web site has a collection of articles,  flyers , a model resolution to rescind, and the book “Formation of the Union Under the Constitution” which contains Governor John Hancock’s circular letter against an Article V Convention in PDF.  Here is the link:

As of this writing, all applications  for an Article V Convention in 2018 were defeated.   Let’s make 2019 a year where we not only stop any new resolutions but rescind existing resolutions as well-one was already filed in New Hampshire.   Readers who would like to be put in contact with activists in their states are welcome to contact Camp Constitution’s director Hal Shurtleff (857) 498-1309 or campconstitution1@gmail.com

Today Marks the 79th Anniversary of Margaret Sanger’s Racist Letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble

Today marks the 79th Anniversary that Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood,  wrote her infamous  letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble telling him that she doesn’t want word to get out that “we want to exterminate the Negro population.”   Dr. Gamble was the grandson of one of the founders of  Proctor and Gamble, and president of the Eugenics Society.   Here is a link to a video we recently made of Rev. Steve  Craft commenting and reading the letter across the street from Gamble’s home in Milton, MA

 

 

 


 

The Weekly Sam: Learning to Read Has Been Politicized

Sam Blumenfeld would write letters to big city mayors and schools officials on a regular basis offering his services free of charge.  He would ask that he be given the worse performing schools,  and within a year, he would turn them around.  He seldom got a reply, and when he did,  it was thank you but no thank you.   Sam was right to believe that government educators and left-wing politicians  had no interest in the creation of highly literate students.  The  functionally illiterate student was just what they wanted.

Sam’s point was recently reinforced when my city councilor (Boston, MA) Matt O’Malley had a posting on his Facebook page urging the signing  of a bill by Governor Baker of Massachusetts that would fund literacy programs.  I  posted in the comment section a link to the Sam Blumenfeld Archives and wrote that there was no need to spend money on a bill when the resource was free to the public.  My posting was quickly removed from his page.

While the government change agents have no use for Sam’s archives, many Americans do.   Please share this important resource far and wide.

President Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

 

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

  Tom Moor and I had the honor of interviewing Pastor Garrett Lear on the Pilgrims, and Thanksgiving earlier this week.  Here is a link to it:

Thanks to all of you who help make Camp Constitution possible, and a Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone of you.

A Letter to Greenpeace

Tara Wojcichowsky

November 10 at 5:37 PM

This is a letter my husband wrote to Greenpeace about them and all the people that think that oil and oil products are not needed on earth or peoples daily lives.

So to all you oil industry haters, maybe you should read this and come to reality!!!

Also please, to everyone out there that agrees, share like crazy!!!

Dear Greenpeace personnel,

I am a very concerned 41-year old Canadian family man (yes, male, I can still distinguish), born in a small village in Saskatchewan and currently residing in Medicine Hat, Alberta. I would love to assist your organization in making the world a better place. I recently read a quote from Mr. Stewart that ‘oil in Alberta is unnecessary’ and something about ‘only clean energy’ (of course I am mildly paraphrasing but it was the gist of the CTV article). Now, I can tell you that I was angered by these comments. So, as Greenpeace has all the answers, I thought who better to contact other than the fine individuals of your organization.

Now Issue # 1 is transportation: As almost everyone in Canada is not living in the GTA, what is the cleanest form of transportation that you could recommend for my family (which includes my wife, 2 teenage daughters, and the family dog)? Public transportation across the prairies (to visit family) is almost non-existent since the closure of Greyhound and STC (Saskatchewan Transport Company). Even when the bus lines were fully operational, 10 to 14-hour bus trips to get from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ were way too long and fares for the family were too expensive. I should also mention a normal drive time for a personal vehicle is approximately 6 hours. So, with public transportation out of the question, I need to own a vehicle. Please recommend a vehicle on the market that has no oil products in it. Maybe, if I can get personal on some level, what kinds of vehicles are most commonly owned by Greenpeace executives/employees? I only ask because as I read the news (and any other publication that posts the comments of individuals such as Keith Stewart), apparently Greenpeace has no use for oil and oil produced products, as they all pollute the earth. Climate change, you know. So, should I buy an electric car … NO, I can’t. As a rational, reasonable thinking Canadian, I am aware that electric cars are full of … NO, wait … Almost COMPLETELY composed of, and manufactured with/by oil-based products. I guess electric cars are out too. Horseback? NO. Riding on horseback would get me into all kinds of trouble with the good people over at PETA and WWF. Don’t want them trying to shut me down. My best guess is that none of you folks over there own a personal vehicle. Well let me know which way to go on that one.

Issue # 2, food: Now I’m sure that no one from the world of Greenpeace buys that grubby food produced on and from farms across Canada. Those farmers use an abundant amount of diesel to produce every scrap and morsel of food that can be found in every grocery store across this great nation. I mean seriously, how is it that all Canadians can’t understand this simple truth. Milk, bread, meat, vegetables, etc. have all come from a farmer, who I can promise you, owns a tractor. Tractors burn a lot of fuel. If you were or are unaware of this revelation, I will guarantee these facts, as I was born and raised on a Canadian farm. ALL the food consumed from the store has come from a farm somewhere. Then to top it off, those grocers have everything packaged one way or another to keep food fresh and sanitary (God knows we can’t have someone else’s germs on our food). Again, oil issues, all that packaging (to keep the food safe) is made with and by oil products. Honestly, it feels like I can’t win. So, like activists, I have a garden for all our food. However; protein (you know, meat) is a real issue. City bylaws say I’m not allowed a pig (for pork products such as bacon and such), or a cow (steaks). I can have five chickens. I guess those teenage girls I mentioned earlier are going on a diet. I am very concerned for the well-being of people living in apartments (where gardens are impossible). By the way, where do you get all your food from?

Issue # 3, heating: This is a touchy subject. How would a man as intelligent as Keith Stewart and other lead activists heat their homes? Now I am somewhat intelligent as I only have a Grade 12 education from a small prairie high school (not big city educated), but I can’t figure this one out for two reasons. Natural gas … I don’t think so! Pollution! That clean burning gas from the ground is still produced by Big Oil (we hate those guys). I was going to switch to coal but, carbon tax (pollution, again). Wood burning is not the way to heat our homes, it’s soon going to be illegal to cut down trees (emissions, again). Solar energy, well, that doesn’t stand a chance in Canada. Geothermal would almost be the way to go if it didn’t require drilling and glycol-based fluids. I don’t need to tell you folks the ecological effects that a glycol spill has on the environment and animals. Wind turbines would be almost effective if they weren’t so expensive to set up and not to mention the amount of poor birds that would die as a result. PETA, again, would not be pleased. So, please help, I currently have no way to heat my home that isn’t a pollution issue.

Issue # 4, electronics: As we all hate Big Oil, we must destroy all electronic devices. No computers, phones, tablets, etc. If it has a computer chip, a plastic-coated wire, a power cord, I mean if even one component of any device/machine contains oil and/or oil by-products, it must be destroyed. Big Oil is not going to keep you and me from our dream of a better planet. No more electronics … I can’t write this letter, businesses everywhere can’t operate, you can’t get your points across. Maybe we need oil? What do you think?

If we (as a country) are not going to produce oil, whom/where does Mr. Stewart want us to buy it from – as I think we have established that it is currently a requirement in every Canadian household including yours? The obvious answer must be the Saudi’s, America or maybe Venezuela (all environmentally-conscious places, right …?). Which does leave me curious, if all our oil is imported, does the carbon tax go up or down? Maybe imported oil is carbon free? The Liberal government would have Canadians believe that the carbon tax will stop global warming. You men and women are smarter than that, right? I’d like to think that as Canadians we should support Canadian oil as it is one of the most regulated oil producing countries on the planet.

Is everyone at Greenpeace living in a time warp? Are you all individuals who are living off the land, being 100 percent self-sufficient? If you are, you wouldn’t be able to read this email. However, we both know that you have the ability to do so, which means Greenpeace is also on the Big Oil wagon. Please don’t be ashamed. Just own it. Stop preaching to the masses. When your organization and personnel are willing to walk your own talk, then I guess we’ll have something to discuss.

Are you so blinded by tofu farting hippies that you can’t see the plain truth? Let us all be honest, organizations such as yours and the ones like it are not willing to make the hard sacrifices to accomplish any real change. Like almost every lobbyist group, you’d prefer to bitch and whine about everything until the donations stop coming in and then move on until the next money-making issue swings around. Granted; Greenpeace started with admirable beginnings, but like all good ideas, it always ends up about the money. Or am I way off base?

I do expect a response, for if I don’t get one … you’re going to find this letter on every news feed and publication that will print it. I will send it to Ottawa (not a threat with the current ‘leadership’, but the Conservatives might listen). I’ll post it on every social media outlet I can sign up for and people will read it. I know that the loudest voice is the one the public hears the best. By now you must understand that you can’t be the only voice for people to listen to.

Sincerely

Leon W.

As you may have guessed, there has been no response from Greenpeace, so, here we go.

If you agree with my thoughts, please feel free to discuss, forward, share, post, etc. We can no longer sit back and let others be the only voice that the public, activists, government, etc. are listening to you. I think that with our oil built electronics, we must circulate this letter. Let’s get people talking. Thanks for your help.

Camp Constitution Remembers Colonel Bob Kingsbury

On this Veteran’s Day, we want to honor the memory of Colonel Robert Kingsbury, who served as a scout for General Patton in World War II, and later became a lt-colonel.  Bob was a good friend, and a supporter of Camp Constitution.  He passed away in September 2013 at the age of 87.  Here is a video of his motivational speech he gave at Camp Constitution’s 2010 annual family camp:

Bob was active and vibrant up until the last few months of his life.  I visited him in the hospital where he handed me a photocopy of a 30 page plus letter he sent to A. Harding Ganz, a history professor from Ohio.   I asked Bob if Camp Constitution Press can publish it, and  he gladly gave us the permission.  Here is a link to a PDF version:   https://www.scribd.com/document/147500738/1st-Scout-Rifle-Squad-UnderGen-Patton.
