Arkansas Senators, Please Vote NO on SJR 7 and SJR 9

The original intent at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787 was to revise the Articles of Confederation, but instead, the Articles of Confederation were scrapped and replaced with the Constitution of the United States. The method of ratification was also changed at the convention.  


Our nation has NEVER HAD a Constitutional Convention (Con Con) under our U.S. Constitution, and we don’t need one!  

Unfortunately, the Con Con bills are back again… but under a different name this time.


The Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee will hear two new Con-Con Resolution bills on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 10:00 am in the Old Supreme Court room at the Arkansas State Capitol.  

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) State Chair, Senator Eddie Joe Williams, is Chair of the Senate State Agencies and Government Affairs Committee and is allowing more diabolical Con Con bills to come through this loaded Senate committee in hopes of getting those bills passed after the ALEC legislators failed to so in this current 2017 session!


This is just another attempt for the Arkansas Legislators to Call for an Article V Amendment Convention (a.k.a Con-Con) by introducing SJR 7 and SJR 9.


Legislators: Remember, a NO VOTE is required on ANY piece of legislation calling for an Article V Amendments Convention. (See Article I, §8, clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution.) Ask any sponsor or promoter to please provide the supporting documents to defend their current position for an Article V Amendments Convention. So far, not one of the pro Con Con legislators has done this.


So, from where or by whom is the big push for the destruction of our Constitution coming?  One person promoting a complete rewrite of our U.S. Constitution is none other than billionaire progressive psychopath George Soros. 


George Soros Quotes:

  • “It is sort of a disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” THE BILLIONAIRE WHO BUILT ON CHAOS - GEORGE SOROS, The Independent, June 3, 1993
  • “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of my self-importance — to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god or an economic reformer like Keynes (each with his General Theory) or, even better, a scientist like Einstein (reflexivity sounds like relativity).” The Alchemy of Finance, George Soros, Google Books


George Soros is bankrolling and promoting a movement called the Constitution_2020 MovementHe wants to see the U.S. Constitution rewritten by the year 2020! Soros’ Open Society Institute and the Center for American Progress sponsored the Constitution 2020 conference in April 2005.  He believes in a “new and improved Bill of Rights.[2]” Also, there is a book currently being sold on Amazon titled, The Constitution In 2020. Secure Arkansas has done some checking on some of the contributors of this book and they are radicals who promote a very radical agenda!  You must understand that both the Left and the Right are working together to destroy both our U.S. and state Constitutions.


So, who has introduced THESE two Constitution-destroying resolutions?

Arkansas Senator Jason Rapert

Senator Jason Rapert (R)  

ALEC Member

The Lead Sponsor and ONLY SPONSOR of SJR 7 & SJR 9


Senator Jason Rapert, another American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) member, is sponsoring these Con-Con bills, both which are applying for an Article V Amendment Convention.


SJR 7 and SJR 9 will be presented by Senator Jason Rapert (R) from Conway, Arkansas. This is such a disappointment. We cannot believe that Senator Rapert is actually presenting these Con Con resolutions once again! But he is… He has made several attempts over the past years to get this done and has failed each session. Now he is running these dangerous Con Con resolutions under the guise of Right to Life and Marriage. Don’t be fooled with this type of con… It’s still a Con Con/ Article V Amendment Convention!

The Senate Pro Tempore (Sen. Jonathan Dismang) and the Assistant Senate Pro Tempore (Sen. Eddie Joe Williams) are both American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) affiliated, and they are the leadership that tries to heavily influence Arkansas’ 35 senators.

The progressive ALEC agenda must be fulfilled by the ALEC State Chair in every state in order for them to stay in power as the ALEC State Chair. Maintaining power in the legislature has been their objective all along! The ALEC State Chair signs ”The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) State Chair Job Description and Agreement”. The position of ALEC State Chair is appointed by the ALEC National Chair. The current ALEC National Chairman is Indiana State Senator Jim Buck (R) .

Attention Legislators: Don’t be bullied or manipulated into voting for these deceptive Con Con bills!

We the people of Arkansas demand true representation from our elected officials.

Attention Arkansans: Remember, NOW is the time to contact these legislators! You simply cannot wait any longer because Secure Arkansas believes they could ALREADY have the votes secured to get this resolution out of committee, so it must be stopped… Right here, right now! Only with your help can we be successful. The emails and phone numbers of the committee members are below.

So, what can YOU do? Simple!


ACTION:  Copy and paste the greeting and these bulleted points (shown directly below) into the body of your email to send to the Senate Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs. (Their email addresses are hyperlinked and all together in a group below.) Just be sure to type your name and the county in which you live at the end of your email to them. You can send ONE email to all of them.

Dear Distinguished Member of the Senate Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs:

  • I want you to pull your support from SJR 7 and SJR 9 and any other Article V Amendments Convention legislation, AND when these resolutions come to your committee, VOTE NO.
  • There is nothing in the information that you have received from either the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) or the Convention of States (COS) organization pointing to the source authority for the statements those organizations are making about an Article V Amendments Convention.
  • Both the Left and the Right are calling for an Article V Amendments Convention.
  • The ONLY THING that State Legislators can do under an Article V Amendments Convention is APPLY TO CONGRESS for a convention. After that, the U.S. Congress calls all the shots. There are NO LIMITS on a Constitutional Convention’s purpose, procedure, agenda, election of delegates, OR the subject matter!  (See Article I, §8, clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution.) If you don’t believe this is true, please provide the supporting documents to defend your position.

ALSO , it’s very important that you, the reader of this alert: 

  • Call the Senate State Agencies Committee Members (even if they are NOT your home legislator) and tell them to VOTE NO on SJR 7 and SJR 9 – their contact info is shown below — keep scrolling. Names listed below in red are known ALEC members (American Legislative Exchange Council). [We suspect that more of them are with ALEC.] How do you think they will vote?
  • Call the sponsor of SJR 7 and SJR 9, Senator Jason Rapert (even if he is NOT your home legislator, but absolutely for sure if he is!) at 501-336-0918 and tell him to PULL the bill
  • Call the Senate switchboard at 501-682-2902 and leave a message for the Senate State Agencies Committee Chair, Senator Eddie Joe Williams, to PULL this bad bill out of committee and/or VOTE NO on SJR 7 and SJR 9

Remember, ALEC is a corporate bill mill, and most legislation isn’t even written locally, and neither was this resolution SJR 7 and SJR 9! So, ALEC — once again — has a stranglehold on this Senate committee! Remember that ALEC politicians cut backroom deals with ALEC. Through ALEC, Global Corporations (like Big Pharma or Big Tobacco) are scheming to rewrite YOUR rights and boost their revenues. This time, they are scheming with the legislators to have a Constitutional Convention that could end our freedom forever. In ALEC’s own words, corporations have a Voice and a Vote.

Now, you may remember SJR 2 — the first Con Con resolution introduced this 2017 session.

HERE IS HOW the Arkansas Senate State Agencies and Governmental Affairs Committee Members voted on SJR 2 on Jan. 26, 2017:

  • YEA Senator Eddie Joe Williams - Chair (Member of ALEC and SLC, NCSL)
  • YEA Senator Gary Stubblefield - Vice-Chair (Member of ALEC and SLC,

            CSG, NCSL, CLEER, and SLLF)

  • YEA Senator Bart Hester (Member of SLC and NCSL and has carried ALEC legislation in the past)
  • YEA Senator Missy Irvin (Member of ALEC and NCSL and SLC)
  • YEA Senator Bryan King (Member of ALEC and SLC, CSG, NCSL)
  • YEA Senator Terry Rice - (Member of ALEC and SLC, CSG NCSL)
  • NAY Senator Trent Garner (newly elected)
  • NAY Senator David Wallace (newly elected)


Senators’ names in RED BOLD font are members of ALEC.

Senators’ names in GREEN BOLD ITALICIZED font are members of NCSL, SLC, and/or CSG.

Some are members of several! (See details here from one of our previous articles.)


No wonder so many ALEC bills and resolutions are passed by the Senate State Agencies committee!  It’s a stacked deck! 

Remember, SJR 2 Con Con resolution passed of the Senate State Agencies committee on 1/26/2017, BUT IT FAILED ON THE SENATE FLOOR on 1/30/2017 thanks to all of your calls and emails, and especially thanks to those senators who voted against it!  

NOTE: This is the SAME COMMITTEE that will be voting on these two NEW disguised Con Con resolutions!  These Article V Amendment resolutions are just another way to apply unnecessarily to Congress for a Con Con!
