Montgomery Blair Sibley vs. Congress


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.

Listen to this story and learn. Learn the fact that things can be changed because of one person. In this case my friend Dan Marks. We must always remember that the system is ours, the peoples. It is not a property of corrupt families, individuals or big companies. When things go seriously wrong in our system and when we get seriously wrong answers, our duty is to step in.

G'day,

Came across this post and remembered watching a YouTube video by RobRyder did in order to attempt to get something addressed.

It may be worthwhile considering this additional path of attack for getting some traction on this issue.
