Citizens for Self Governance’s Mark Meckler makes the case for a Convention of States

The concept of a Convention of States (COS), as outlined in Article V of the Constitution, has been the topic of great conversation recently. From Mark Levin’s book, The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic, to the gathering of state legislators at Mount Vernon last month, the idea of a COS is gaining momentum. On radio this morning, Mark Meckler of Citizens for Self Governance joined Pat and Stu to discuss the ins-and-outs of what a COS would mean for America.

“Well, so you know, I think all of us can identify the problems. We know there are plenty of problems in Washington D.C., and I think one of the things we all acknowledge is over the last few years we've seen [politicians] not going to fix the problems in Washington D.C.,” Mark said. “We'll complain about it and whine about it. We do plenty of that… What we don't do is provide an answer.”

“There's really is the answer the answer is the American people. It's found in Article V of the Constitution – that second clause says that we have the right to call a Constitutional Convention,” he continued. “It was set up that way for this situation where the federal government had become tyrannical, needed to be restrained by the people. And so we are calling for an Amending Convention under Article V.”

According to Article V, two-thirds of the state legislatures, or 34 states, must approve an application for a convention to occur. State legislatures would then send delegates to the convention, with each state getting one vote on proposed amendments. For an amendment to pass and become a part of the Constitution, it would have to be approved by three-fourths, or 38, of the state legislatures. Mark admitted that just a couple of years ago he would not have believed the support for such a gathering existed, but he has recently had a change of heart.

“I've spent the last couple years studying the issue, and then I had Michael Farris, founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association, one of the few lawyers ever to take an Article V case before the Supreme Court case. The plan, for me, is pretty simple,” Mark explained. “You need to argue: In roughly 4,000 state legislative districts around the country, you need roughly 100 people in each district to be willing to call their legislative representative and ask for a convention… That's not a high bar. And I started to talking to reps all over the country and they said, ‘We don't get 100 calls on anything. If you can generate a hundred calls then we're going to be motivated to at least take a serious look.’”

Regardless of how you feel about the idea of a COS, it is important to recognize the power Article V of the Constitution grants the American people and the states.

“This is the most important thing: Literally, only the people can do this. The people have to take control,” Mark concluded. “They do that by going to ConventionOfStates.com. There they can sign up to be a district captain or a volunteer. We still have a few states that don't have state captains yet. We've got legislative liaison volunteers, coalition volunteers. You can absolutely get involved. You have to get involved. Only you are going to fix the country. The politicians in D.C. are never going do it. ConventionOfStates.com is the place you can get involved.”

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
