You can copy and paste the addresses in batches to your bcc line: One batch for the Republicans – the other batch for the Democrats.
The Democrats are the heroes in Nebraska – they understand the dangers of an Article V convention. The Republicans are the lemmings who are falling in line to implement the globalist agenda [thou they don’t know it]. [Have you heard the Republican party being called “the Stupid Party”?]
We are in grave danger of having an Article V convention and of getting a new Constitution which moves us into the North American Union:
Please Help STOP an Article V convention. Just a few sentences from you to the Nebraska Senators showing your opposition to an Article V convention may turn the tide!

Subject: BLAST ALERT against Nebraska COS (on calendar) and WP
To: Judi Caler
Here are the bills we oppose in Nebraska: LR6 (COS) and LR268 (WolfPAC).
The Nebraska Senate convened 1/3/18, and LR6 (COS) remains on the floor calendar, having been carried over from 2017. Last year it got as far as 3 hours of debate, but didn’t have the 33 votes necessary for cloture (ending the debate and causing a vote).
Here are talking points against COS and WP. Attached and HERE is a flyer specific to Nebraska covering the “limited” convention and Delegate issues.
Senators seeking assurance that a convention won’t “run away” may be interested in THIS VIDEO, where Robert Kelly, now COS general counsel, admits that the subject “the power and jurisdiction of the federal government” which is written into every COS application, is broad enough to amend the bulk of the Constitution!
Please educate the following 48 Nebraska Senators and give them good reason to VOTE NO on LR6 & LR268. And, ask them to VOTE NO on CLOTURE of LR6 and NO on any other legislation asking Congress to call an Article V convention, including Delegate limitation bills which give the false impression that the Nebraska Senate can control its Delegates. We beat them last year; let’s do it again!
Editor’s Note: Heads up NEBRASKA— I just received the following email from Publius Huldah. We need to act on this before the vote this coming Thursday, December 7th. Please pass this on to your family members, neighbors and friends. Thank you.

Subject: Urgent BLAST ALERT against Nebraska LR6 and LR181
To: Judi Caler
These are the bills we oppose in Nebraska: LR6 (COS) and LR181 (Delegate).
This coming Thursday, December 7th, the NE Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee will hear LR181 which asks the committee to look into ways of controlling convention Delegates, including fines and penalties. The purpose of this bill is to convince Nebraska Senators that an Article V convention can’t run away, because they’ll be able to control their Delegates. LR6 (COS) has already passed the committee.
Nebraska Senators have failed to pass COS legislation every year since at least 2015, but not for lack of trying. They now claim to be closer than ever. Passing LR181 will help them pass LR6. These bills are such a priority for some Senators that they are still on tour speaking and pitching it in during the holidays. We must stop them!
Attached (at bottom of post) and linked HERE is Publius’s latest paper adapted for Nebraska which gives reasons for opposing both bills.
And here are talking points against COS and Delegate bills.
Please write to the following 48 Nebraska Senators and ask them to VOTE NO on LR6 and LR181:

“It’s important that this not appear as though we are pulling a stunt at this convention” Ken Cuccinelli to the New York Times“This is about protecting movement conservatism.”
Actually, it has nothing to do with conservatism, everything to do with winning since the voters has spoken, and Ted Cruz having suspended his campaign one week ago while in the process of siphoning off delegates is talking about unsuspending his campaign.
The Cruz crew working behind the scenes with the Senator from Texas holding on to his delegates through this summer’s Republican Party Convention this July in Cleveland, Ohio is moving to commandeer the RNC platform thereby wrestling the presidential nomination from the presumptive nominee, Donald Trump.
The latest Ted Cruz talking point is that if the senator from Texas wins the Nebraska GOP primary today, he will jump back in.
What shall we deduce from said statement? Ted Cruz only appeared to suspend his campaign, something that will please Cruz supporters…only? (Lyin’ Ted Cruz?)
Ted Cruz floated the possibility of restarting his presidential campaign if he wins Nebraska’s GOP primary on Tuesday and avoided saying whether he supports Donald Trump‘s bid for president.
Cruz, who suspended his White House run last week, said he does not expect to win Nebraska’s primary but is leaving the door open.
‘We launched this campaign intending to win. The reason we suspended our campaign was that with the Indiana loss, I felt there was no path to victory,’ he said Tuesday on conservative host Glenn Beck’s radio program.
‘If that changes, we will certainly respond accordingly.’
Cruz demurred on supporting Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, because the Republican National Convention and general election are still months away.
‘This is a choice every voter is going to have to make. I would note, it’s not a choice we as voters have to make today,’ Cruz said when asked about supporting Trump. …
It is not about the voters. The voters have spoken. Cruz was obviously smarting from his exchange with Trump supporters last week; a nightmarish two weeks followed by his loss in Indiana but having regrouped its business as usual.
Senator Ted Cruz’s supporters are mounting an effort to seize control of the Republican platform and the rules governing the party’s July convention, the first indication that Mr. Cruz will not simply hand his delegates over to Donald J. Trump.
In an email sent Sunday to pro-Cruz convention delegates, a top aide to the Texas senator wrote that it was “still possible to advance a conservative agenda at the convention.”
“To do that, it is imperative that we fill the Rules and Platform Committees with strong conservative voices like yours,” wrote Ken Cuccinelli, who was the campaign’s former delegate wrangler and a former attorney general of Virginia. “That means you need to come to the national convention and support others in coming, too!”
Mr. Cruz is planning a Monday evening conference call where, as Mr. Cuccinelli writes, Mr. Cruz’s former officials plan to “discuss what we can do at the convention to protect against liberal changes to our platform, and how we can right the wrongs in the rules from 2012!”
The “wrongs” Mr. Cuccinelli was referring to are the changes pushed through at the last convention by supporters of Mitt Romney that would have made it harder for a candidate’s name to be placed in nomination.
But Mr. Cruz’s supporters and other conservative activists are also deeply concerned about Mr. Trump’s general election agenda, and want to ensure that he does not alter the party’s platform. Since locking up the nomination last week, Mr. Trump has made clear he intends to run a populist campaign against Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, indicating he is open to higher taxes and an increase in the minimum wage.
The party’s convention rules and policy platform are determined every four years by temporary committees comprised of a select group of convention delegates. The rules and platform are then ratified or rejected by all the delegates at the convention.
With the assumption that the party’s nomination would not be decided on the first convention ballot, Mr. Cruz spent considerable time this spring electing delegates favorable to him to the July convention in Cleveland. So while he is out of the race, many of his supporters will still be delegates. And while many convention delegates are bound to support Mr. Trump on the first ballot, they are free to vote their conscience on matters relating to convention rules and the platform. …
Except that Cruz is not out of the race. He merely put forth the illusion of same.
… The email, which carries the “Cruz-Fiorina” logo, was forwarded to The New York Times by a convention delegate.
Reached by telephone, Mr. Cuccinelli authenticated the message. As for Mr. Trump’s rhetorical shifts in recent days, he said, “nothing I’ve seen since a week ago has been surprising to me.”
But Mr. Cuccinelli said Mr. Cruz, who has been silent since withdrawing from the race last Tuesday, had no intention of trying to rewrite convention rules in an effort to deny Mr. Trump the nomination….
Beck has obviously refilled his meds over the weekend. Below is this morning’s exchange between Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz.
No coincidence that Beck interviews Cruz on the morning of the Nebraska primary.
What about last week’s televised press conference where Cruz announced that he was suspending his campaign? Oh, that….which pretty much means that everything that has occurred since within the Republican Party can be chalked up to nothing more than a distraction and an opportunity for Ted Cruz to catch his breath while continuing to work behind the scene.
While dismissing his behavior and that of the #NeverTrumpsters these past months, Beck on today’s radio program (audio at bottom of post),Beck accused the GOP of using Alinskyite tactics (which they are but they’re not alone) against conservatives.
Interestingly enough, while sharing his newfound revelations, Beck mentioned that Rience Priebus was in negotiations with someone at Mercury in the hopes of meeting with Beck and scheduling an on-air interview. However, since Cruz suspended his campaign, Priebus backtracked and is no longer taking or returning calls from Beck’s people.
Teachable moment: While Beck never mentions it, it does seem that he was burned by his establishment collaborators.
How is it that Progressives are always screaming about the Koch Brothers who by the way have broken no laws while at the same time ignoring the endless transgressions of the world’s most famous puppet master.
Fellow patriot and friend, Roxy aka Diary of a Mad Conservative wrote a rather telling post yesterday about how Barack Obama’s benefactor, George Soros is purchasing grain elevators in Nebraska through a company, he owns called Gavilon.
There is a hell of a lot of manipulating going on and Americans, if not the world, have the right to know just how deeply Spooky Dude is embedding his interests throughout in preparation of the New World Order.
I urge you to read Roxy’s post and pass it on. It is a worthy read.
My brother-in-law is a wheat farmer and reads websites daily about wheat prices, grain news and agri-business in general. He read a story last week, that he since can’t find and I can’t find when I googled it, which makes me wonder if the story was scrubbed, about George Soros purchasing grain elevators in Nebraska. These particular elevators are apparently the last stop before the wheat is shipped out of the county. Please read on. I did find so … Read More
“FREMONT, Neb. (AP) – Voters in the eastern Nebraska city of Fremont on Monday approved a ban on hiring or renting property to illegal immigrants, the latest proposal in a series of immigration regulations taken up by communities around the country.
About 57 percent of voters in Fremont supported the proposal, according to unofficial results that still must be certified by the election commissioner. The measure is likely to face a long and costly court battle, with the American Civil Liberties Union saying it will try to block it before it even goes into effect.
The town of about 25,000 people has watched as its Hispanic population surged in the past two decades, largely due to the jobs available at the nearby Fremont Beef and Hormel meatpacking plants. The city also has an enviably low unemployment rate that matches the Nebraska rate of 4.9 percent.
Nonetheless, residents worry that jobs are going to illegal immigrants who they fear could drain community resources. Proponents of the ballot measure collected enough signatures and fought in the Nebraska Supreme Court to put the question to a public vote.
Supporters say the measure is needed to make up for what they see as lax federal law enforcement. Opponents say it could fuel discrimination.
Trevor McClurg said the measure is fair because it’s aimed at people who aren’t legally in the U.S.
‘I don’t think it’s right to be able to rent to them or hire them,’ McClurg said. ‘They shouldn’t be here in the first place.’
Clint Walraven, 51, who has lived in Fremont all his life, said the jobs should go to legal residents who are unemployed—something he believes the ordinance would help fix. Discussions on the issue can get heated, he said, particularly if racism is mentioned.
‘It has nothing to do with being racist,’ said. ‘We all have to play by the same rules. … If you want to stay here, get legal.”
