(Apr. 9, 2015) — As repeatedly documented in this Blog, I have filed suit against the Judicial Branch and Executive Branch many times.  Predictably, none of those suits were determined upon the merits but instead my claims were avoided from being determined on the merits by the courts ruling that I did not have “standing” to challenge the allegedly illegal actions of government officials.

Now I am fully aware of the adage attributed to Albert Einstein that Insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Nonetheless, believing I should leave no stone unturned, yesterday I sued the U.S. Congress through their representatives: the Honorable Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader of the Senate, and the Honorable John A. Boehner, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.  The suit is framed as a logical syllogism:

U.S. Citizens have a general right: “to require that the Government be administered according to law. . . .”. Fairchild v. Hughes, 258 U.S. 126, 130 (1922)

The “Law” found at Article V of the Constitution states in pertinent part: “The Congress . . . on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, . . ”

“Two thirds of the several States” equals 34 states (50 states*.66%= 34)

To date, as detailed in the Complaint, thirty-five (35) states have made “application” for a Convention to Propose Amendments but Congress has refused to make the “call”.

Therefore, insomuch as Congress is not “administering” the government according to law, the Court is obligated to order Congress to do its duty and make the “call” for such a Convention.

The Defendants the Honorable Mitch McConnell and the Honorable John A. Boehner have twenty (20) days to respond to this lawsuit which I served upon them today.

  1. I understand the title “Honorable” is attached to the positions that McConnell and Boehner hold, but neither come even close to the dictionary definition.

  2. Montgomery, glad to see you are still maintaining pressure on this silent coup/usurpation. I believe Hillary and Jarrett were responsible for all the “no standing” routine that was also used to keep Criminal Presentments out of the courts for 6 years now by DNC Operatives, whereas no Discovery was allowed on any Presentment keeping DNC Operatives from any accountability-Misprision Of Felony was and is being committed.

  3. What concerns me about a constitutional convention is I do not trust ANY politician as far as I can toss him or her with a pair of tweezers.

    This reminds me of congress and the executive right now, if they do not respect the constitution now what the hell good are new laws one side or the other will refuse to comply with?

    The constitution is a simple document made complex by a bevy of lawyers who lost their sole and common sense in law school. “Does anyone know of a lawyer that goes to church and means it?”
