"There are many ways of abetting; urge and help on, or taking part in the sins of others; by commendation, counsel, consent, or concealment [silence]. And if we share with others in their sins, we must expect to share in their plagues. If we do not reprove the sins of others, we have fellowship with them. A good man will be ashamed to speak of what many wicked men are not ashamed to do. We must have not only a sight and a knowledge that sin is sin, and in some measure shameful, but see it as a breach of God's holy law. After the example of prophets and apostles, we should call on those asleep and dead in sin, to awake and arise, that Christ may give them light." Mathew Henry
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" (Eph 5:11).
To ignore them or avoid them is not enough — Reprove them.
In ancient Rome, messengers were sent about the roads, which was a revolutionary change in communications. If you knew of a message that was not favorable to your plans (be it war, business, or love), killing the messenger was a known extreme, but an effective, practiced tactic. One had to simply kill the messenger to prevent the communication from taking place.
Today the messenger is often a researcher, investigator, or employee who is a whistleblower trying to speak out on an issue. The corporation, institution, or persons who will be affected negatively by a message, literally kill the messenger or silences them by discrediting them. This is what is taking place today.
Socialist and community activist Saul Alinsky taught organizers to ridicule opponents when the arguments of their opponents could not be refuted by logic, evidence or argument. He advocated denying the truth or just plain lying. In Alinsky's world, the end always justified the means.
Alinsky's acolytes on the left have learned the lesson well. Because they dare not address the questions raised, they attack the one asking the questions, they attack the messenger when they don't have the intellect to counter the message. Alinsky's Rules for Radicals number 5 states, "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."
This is what is happening today to Publius Huldah, a warrior of great renown who is fighting a raging battle to stop the call for another Article V Convention. Publius Huldah is a retired attorney. Her bio reads, Before getting a law degree, she got a degree in philosophy where she specialized in political philosophy and epistemology (theories of knowledge). She now writes extensively on the U.S. Constitution, using the Federalist Papers to prove its original meaning and intent. She also shows how federal judges and politicians have ignored our Constitution and replaced it with their personal opinions and beliefs. She is a prolific writer and an excellent speaker. Here is an archive of many of her articles, and here is her own website.
The proponents of this new Convention are working together from the left (Soros and his minions), and the neo-con right, to rewrite our Constitution. Link Mark Meckler, Nick Dranius, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, David Barton, Tom Coburn, Michael Farris, and countless others who masquerade as conservatives, but are truly wolves in sheep's clothing, are calling for a new Convention. Publius Huldah, Michelle Horstman, the John Birch Society, Phyllis Schlafly and countless others, including myself, have written in explicit detail the dangers of opening a new Convention. All of us have been maligned.
Together we've had success in educating state legislatures of the dangers of calling for a new Convention, not to mention the fact that it cannot be controlled. The precedent was set with the very first Convention. Link
The big money groups, Dranius' Goldwater Institute, and Mark Meckler's Citizens for Self Governance are in the forefront of destroying Publius' reputation. They are absolutely desperate to shut her up. Why? Because she's telling the American citizens the truth. Remember, Meckler used to be the co-leader of Tea Party Patriots, and when he was, he joined with Lawrence Lessig, a Harvard Professor, who hates Christianity and Christ, to have a conference on an Article V Convention. It was held at Harvard. Here is the two part article, Tea Party Patriots, Harvard, and the Constitutional Convention.
This attack on Publius started because of a disagreement she had with another writer. That person decided to do some digging and told people what he supposedly found. Unfortunately, the smears being used are really very miniscule, have nothing to do with Publius, and happened over 30 years ago to an in-law. There are folks in every family who are referred to as the "black sheep," yet because they're family, we try to help them, even when they often don't deserve it.
Several people have insinuated that this is why she doesn't use her real name. Well folks, there are countless public figures and writers who do not use their real names. Anyone know Brigitte Gabriel, Caroline Glick? There are many times I've wished I had never used my real name, because being stalked, harassed, and slandered is not my idea of fun. Meckler and Dranius are now at the forefront of trying to destroy Publius Huldah. Again, they cannot answer her statements, articles, or messages on why a Constitutional Convention is so very dangerous, why it cannot be controlled, and why the Father of our 1787 Constitution, James Madison, vigorously warned against a second Convention.
This little 5 foot tall, 85 pound, 70 year old woman is taking her own time and money to travel the country and speak to groups about the dangers of a new Convention. She spends hours writing and researching and gets paid nothing. These huge groups are so afraid of this little powerhouse of truth that they must attack her reputation, because they certainly cannot attack what she says about another Convention.
Get on the social media and respond to these terrible accusations and ask these proponents of a Convention why they need to attack Publius Huldah's reputation, rather than debating her in a public forum. This is the crux of this entire assault on her person.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
