Parler’s new CEO, Mark Meckler, is the chairman of the Convention of States Project (COS), which aims to rewrite the Constitution, and in which Soros has invested millions of dollars for several years.
Legislator Norman R. Hughes, of Michigan, noted in 2014, “George Soros—the financier of global fascism—is pumping millions of dollars into the very Article V campaign being promoted by” leading conservative voices, including Mark Levin, National File cited on Feb. 21.
This raises fears that possible changes to the Constitution could fall under the influence of Soros and other radical left organizations, which would seize the opportunity to impose all of their constitutional amendments.
For many, Soros would strip Americans of freedom of speech and religion, the right to privacy, and the right to bear arms.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia comments on Convention of States Project
Conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia called the bill undesirable, “I certainly wouldn’t want a constitutional convention, Whoa! Who knows what would come out of it.”
The risks of a Constitutional Convention lie in the fact that it could end up being absolute in its changes and decisions, without even Congress being able to limit it, according to the concept issued by former Chief Justice Warren Burger in 1988.
“There is no way to effectively limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda,” Burger warned.
He added, “Congress might try to limit the Convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey. After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like its agenda.”
Limiting Article V convention
A report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities agrees with these concepts, arguing that limiting an Article V convention would be impossible, because it cannot be restricted in the subjects to be discussed and the application of the Constitution to control it is unclear.
Also, some inconsistencies are noted in the actions of Parler’s new CEO, Meckler, as he presents the COS movement as being based in his home and managed by his wife.
However, tax filings indicate that this entity pays its staff large salaries, spends thousands of dollars on promotion and fundraising, and pays influential lobbyists, including former senators.
Also, to a spokesman for the John Birch Society, Meckler appears to be “inconsistent with his wording of an Article V Convention, as well as his own description of Convention of States,” according to National File.
Parler is funded by its co-founder Rebekah Mercer, a powerful Republican donor, who now raises questions about her choice of Meckler as CEO of the company.
Soros continues investing to put Democrats in Congress and Democratic prosecutors in the judiciary who support his leftist agenda.
Many progressive groups are funded with Soros money, including the Senate Majority PAC affiliated with Chuck Schumer and the House Majority PAC affiliated with Nancy Pelosi.
Soros has been condemned on multiple occasions for trying to overthrow democratic governments by funding various extreme campaigns and movements.
