For years, the John Birch Society (JBS) has lied about an Article V Convention. One of the biggest JBS Lies is the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia, PA from May until September, was a "runaway" convention.

According to the JBS this means the convention exceeded the authority granted by Congress in its Febru convention call. By calling a convention of states, we can stop the federal spending and debt spree, the power grabs of the federal courts, and other misuses of federal power.

The current situation is precisely what the Founders feared, and they gave us a solution we have a duty to use. Convention was the one stated in the Annapolis Convention resolution: “to ren-der the constitution of the Federal Government adequate for the exigencies of the Union.” Congress voted to endorse this Convention on Febru It did not purport to “call” the Convention or give instructions to the delegates.

It merely proclaimed that. Nick Dranias of the Goldwater Institute — one of the more energetic proponents of an Article V convention — published an on-line pamphlet called “10 Facts to Rebut the Mythology of a Runaway Convention.” His leaflet is pretty typical of the argumentation addressing skeptics of a constitutional convention.

Conspiracy theories concerning Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper () have flourished following the success of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code () — a novel in which an American symbologist notices that one of the apostles sitting to the right of Jesus is, in fact, Mary Magdalene, deducing that the two had a child and their Author: Mutualart.

convention today. • A Convention of States is a meeting of sovereign governments, and each state has one vote. Each state commis - sioner is empowered and instructed by his or her state legislature.

• A convention “call” cannot determine how many delegates each state sends or how they are chosen. That is a mat. No one denies that Donna Tartt has written the “It novel” of the year, a runaway best-seller that won her the Pulitzer Prize.

But some of the self-appointed high priests of literary criticism—at The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and The Paris Review—are deeply dismayed by The Goldfinch and its success. The Zionist-Created Scofield ‘Bible’ This is a favorite device of modern dispensationalists who essentially weigh all scripture against the unspoken and preposterous theory that the older it is, the more authoritative.

In many cases the Oxford references prove to be puzzling rabbit trails leading nowhere, simply diversions. The critics are correct, then, that a Convention of States is a long shot. But the truth of this first critique undermines the second objection—that a Convention of States would become a “runaway convention,” in which rogue delegates hijack the agenda, Author: Tom Lindsay.

The Book is the best to explain Godel's Proof of the Incompleteness Theorem. Gödel showed that Principia, or any other system within which arithmetic can be developed, is essentially incomplete.

In other words, given any consistent set of arithmetical axioms, there are true arithmetical statements that cannot be derived from the set/5. And, most of all, will the observation of the great American commentator H.L. Mencken prove true once again.

"For there is something about a national convention that makes it as fascinating as a Author: David Shribman. The Diviner's Tale is, in many ways, about what it's like to be a true outsider, gifted in ways the culture finds unacceptable or even bogus, trying to negotiate a path through the "real" world, the supposedly sane world.

So the politics in this book are more familial and local/5(81). Not only was the list a fake, but when the Anchorage Daily News investigated the story, it found no evidence that Palin had ever sought to remove books from the in.

So, on top of all the other completely preposterous nonsense, a Russian spy intent on getting Trump elected released pages of damaging information on Trump but nothing negative about Hillary Clinton. Viewed in quick and haphazard slices, G2’s debut may look like a collaboration between Putin and Assange.

Oh I'm super excited about this book. So, I started this book on Monday and I couldn't put it down. Even though I had other books waiting for my attention, and other things to do. However, if I could have, I probably would have finish Secrets of a Runaway Bride by Valerie Bowman in one day.

So, let's get started with this fantastic can't stop read/5. Minnesotans should be wary of the Convention of States group that is holding a rally in the statehouse today to lobby for their resolution to call a new federal constitutional convention. Thankfully James H. Slatton’s book “W.H.

Whitistt; The Man and the Controversy” changes that. We now not only have a biography of one of the most infamous men in Southern Baptist history, but also a book that details the history of a controversy that almost split the Southern Baptist Convention in the s/5(3).

In theoretical physics, negative mass is matter whose mass is of opposite sign to the mass of normal matter, e.g. −1 kg. Such matter would violate one or more energy conditions and show some strange properties, stemming from the ambiguity as to whether attraction should refer to force or the oppositely oriented acceleration for negative mass.

It is used in certain. In Newtonian theory, the force on the negative mass changes sign (GMm/r^2) switches sign when m goes from positive to negative, but the accleartion, F/m =- GM/R^2 does not change sign when m changes sign. I do believe there may be some difficulty with proving that a negative test mass follows a geodesic directly from Einstein's equation.

Science Fiction (often called sci-fi or SF) is a popular genre of fiction in which the narrative world differs from our own present or historical reality in at least one significant way.
