    By Steve Peoples and Nicholas Riccardi | AP March 17 at 3:54 PM PHOENIX — Fearful of a Donald Trump nomination to lead the GOP, conservative leaders huddled privately in Washington on Thursday in search of a plan to stop the billionaire businessman. His Republican rivals braced for another Trump victory, this time in delegate-rich Arizona. The GOP has an eager alternative in Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, yet some party leaders are exploring “other avenues” instead of rallying behind the fiery conservative, an ominous sign that Republican leaders’ deep dislike of Cruz complicates their overwhelming concern about Trump. “The establishment is like...

    In movies, documents have a large, red stamp at the top: Classified. The stamped documents - which have been replaced by e-mails, phones, or thumb drives - have to be protected from the bad guys at all costs. Too bad Hillary Clinton doesn't understand what every American moviegoer over age five knows instinctively. The Intelligence Community's inspector general Charles McCullough III recently reported that at "least several dozen of the emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state contained classified material, including intelligence material classified at the highest levels." The e-mails varied in their levels...

    Constitutional convention advocate Mark Meckler praised the participation of Democrats and others in the movement. The New American 28 June 2014 How would conservatives good-hearted, well-meaning, Constitution-loving conservatives who have been persuaded to join the Article V Constitutional Convention camp react if they knew that some of the leaders of that very movement were not only accepting the participation of liberals in the planning, but praising their contribution?

    Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler was arrested at an airport in New York City on Thursday after he attempted to check-in a locked gun box holding his Glock 27 pistol and ammunition to a Delta Air Lines ticket agent. According to authorities and his attorney, Meckler, 49, holds a concealed-carry permit for the Glock 27 pistol at home in California, but not in New York where he was attempting to board the plane. As a result, he was arrested and charged with a felony. Before leaving home, passengers should acquaint themselves with the weapon laws of the jurisdiction that...
  • Time For A Constitutional Convention?

    Last week the unthinkable happened. While you were distracted by the banal and only marginally important presidential primaries, the lion, Harvard Law School, publicly lay down with the lamb, the Tea Party Patriots. The long-term political implications are, potentially, far more potent than a mere presidency. The SuperElite and the SuperPopulists convened at Harvard for a Conference for a Constitutional Convention. It was co-hosted by Lawrence Lessig, from Harvard, and by Mark Meckler, co-founder of the 850,000 member Tea Party Patriots. Lessig is a leading figure on the social democratic left, the director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for...

    One of the movements leaders, Mark Meckler, was once a top operator in a company accused of conning consumers. Is he applying the same tactics to the tea party? There's a book Mark Meckler likes to recommend to reporters and others seeking insight into the tea party juggernaut. Called The Starfish and the Spider, it explores the "unstoppable power" of decentralized and leaderless organizations. "We're like the starfish," Meckler, a national coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, said earlier this year. "There is no head, there is no leader of the organization. There are thousands of starfish out there and...
