Convention of States!


Mark Meckler on Full Measure

Published in Blog on May 09, 2024 by Matt May

No Sunday morning network political show will be as interesting or significant as Convention of States Action (COSA) co-founder and president Mark Meckler's discussion about the urgency of returning power to the states via an Article V convention on the weekly news program "Full Measure" this Sunday, May 12, at 10:00 a.mET. 

Check out this clip and short preview:

"Full Measure" is hosted by one of the country's most-respected and highly-decorated investigative journalists, Sharyl Attkisson

Attkisson, who is also managing editor of "Full Measure", has been a broadcast journalist for over 30 years including stints with CBS News, PBS, and CNN.

Her piece "The Business of Congress", which examined the significant power and influence held by congressional lobbyists, earned her the Emmy Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism in 2013. Attkisson was nominated for multiple Emmys for her reporting concerning members of Congress squandering tax dollars and a congressional junket to the Copenhagen climate summit. 

Attkisson also earned an Emmy Award for her report "Gunwalker: Fast and Furious", which investigated the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) sting operation between 2006 and 2011. 

Memorably, it was Attkisson's reporting that forced Hillary Clinton to publicly admit that, contrary to her own claims, the former First Lady and U.S. senator did not come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 2008. 

Attkisson is also the author of the books The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See and Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama's Washington. Both books were New York Times best sellers.

True to her pedigree, Attkisson ends each broadcast of "Full Measure" by pledging to search "for more stories to hold power accountable."

Watch Mark Meckler's thorough, fair, and wide-ranging interview with Attkisson on various Sinclair Broadcasting Group stations, including affiliates of networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and Telemundo, in addition to

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
