ONE MILLION CONSCIOUS BLACK VOTERS & CONTRIBUTORS
HOLDS NATIONAL NEWS CONFERENCE

WHEN?
Thursday, February 25, 2016
9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon

Press Conference Begins Promptly at 10 AM

WHERE?
African-American Civil War Memorial & Museum
1925 Vermont Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20001
(202) 667-2667

WHY?
To introduce the One Million Conscious Black Voters & Contributors and our Platform Planks to the National African-American community; to challenge the rights of states to pass laws that contradict the United States' Constitution (especially 'laws of attainder'); to lay claim to being the nation's preeminent "Black Constitutional Patriots;" to remove the clause '...except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted...' from the 13th Amendment to the U.S, Constitution; and to call on all like-minded believers in Black self-reliance to join our movement to empower African-Americans economically and politically!

IS THE U.S. CONSTITUTION THE
"SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND?"

Article VI of the United States Constitution says so, and reads in part:

"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding."

The article goes on to state that: "The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution;"

The foregoing excerpt from the U.S. Constitution is not "legalese," it is plain old American English! NO states have a right to enact laws that contradict the U.S. Constitution, period! Should be end of story!!

How then has it happened that a majority of states have passed laws which allow police to violate citizens' Constitutional protections with impunity? Why are police allowed to routinely commit acts of deadly aggression against American citizens with no fear of prosecution? If indeed "no person is above (or beyond the scope of) the law," why are police, who are supposedly "sworn to protect and serve" citizens, allowed to maim and murder them in the streets and even in their homes?

The One Million Conscious Black Voters & Contributors (OMCBV&C) contends it is because an element among the populace has used its economic power to hijack control of the U.S. Government, and in the process seeks to divest the Constitution of its Bill of Rights. This act of treason has gone largely unreported on because the same unsavory elements have gained control of the so-called "fourth estate," the public media.

Indeed, the "mainstream" or 'major' media have become mere propaganda tools used by the nation's oligarchs to indoctrinate the public into submission to the interests of the ruling elites. As a result, for example, the "working class" has become anti-union; and many prominent blacks advanced the ridiculous premise that the word 'nigger' could become a "term of endearment!"

In an effort to cement their anti-Constitution gains to date, the far-right-wing of the Conservative/Republican party has for at least two decades been busily at work seeking to convene a Constitutional Convention. Their intent is to remove those provisions from the 'Supreme Law of the Land" which protect the rights of citizens. It is reported that Ted Cruz, contender for the Republican Presidential nomination, is proposing a bill to strip the 5th and 6th Amendments from the U.S. Constitution! By way of illustration, pertinent excerpts from those two amendments are stated here:

Amendment V
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury...: ...nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...;"

Amendment VI
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; ...to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense."

Why would Ted Cruz or any other citizen who claim to be patriotic, be opposed to the foregoing provisions? Do they hate the American Constitution that much? If so, why?

Insofar as the conservatives have become anti-constitution, and the Democrats are moving aggressively to join them on the right-wing political fringe, someone needs to step up and defend the U.S. Constitution as the foundation for providing and protecting the rights of America's citizens!

In view of the foregoing, the OMCBV&C is staking claim to the title:

"BLACK CONSTITUTIONAL PATRIOTS"

Insofar as both "major" political parties have become anti-Constitution, we have determined to step into the breach and declare ourselves the defenders of all that is right and good about, and in, the Supreme Law of the Land, and will henceforth speak loud and strong in its defense. It follows logically, that if we are to assume such an important role and responsibility in and for America, our once-enslaved people must at long last be provided with every full measure of citizenship. Toward that end, we hereby call for the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to be corrected to read:

"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the United States nor any place subject to their jurisdiction." In the words of Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, as he spoke on the 150th Anniversary of the 13th Amendment, "It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this."
