  • Le Pen at CPAC

    National Review ^ | February 22, 2018 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    Marion Le Pen gave her speech at CPAC today. My French is merely . . . aspirational, so I won’t opine on how representative it was of her as a political figure. And I have a warning for those who would warm to it uncritically. As my career grants me friendships with other conservatives across Europe, I notice the tendency in them and in myself to idealize or project hopes onto the conservatives in other nations. My Irish and English friends tend to be far more positive about Trump than I am. And I have been far more positive about...
  • Mr. President: Solution to Illegal Immigration and Voter Fraud.

    AmericanSky News ^ | 2/22/2018 | Yuri Blanarovich
    Ukrainian patriots are joining American patriots in helping President Trump to Make America Great Again. Please check the article "Solution to the Illegal Immigration and Voter Fraud problems" at describing practical, humane, sensible solution to stop illegal immigration, voter fraud and liberal destruction of US. Besides Canada Free Press about a year ago, there seems to be Yuuge Wall of Resistance to publicize the solution from talking heads and patriot media. Instead there is a talk about elaborate wall for $20 billion, that $400 bathtub drone can overfly, ignoring simple barbed wire fence Soviets and Hungarians used. Sanctuary cities...

    RUSH: Hey, quick question for those of you just tuning in to the program today: How many of you saw Trump’s CPAC speech? He went about an hour and 20 minutes. It was very raucous. But how many of you saw it? I, of course, watched it here. And you know, folks, I have to tell you. It was so great — and there’s about a thousand of ’em in there. It was so great seeing a bunch of young people cheering the president at a conference instead of watching him on CNN. It was just so much more pleasant...

I mean there is no party political conference in the United Kingdom that comes anywhere near the sheer scale of this. And for the second year in a row we have the Vice-President Pence speaking this morning and tomorrow morning President Trump will be here speaking to at least ten thousand people packing into this hall.....
  • NRA head lashes out at gun control advocates: 'They hate individual freedom'

    The Guardian (via MSN) ^ | 2/22/2018 | Paul Owen
    Wayne LaPierre, the head of the NRA, broke his silence a week after the Florida school shooting with an unrepentant defence of gun rights and an aggressive attack on political elites who “hate individual freedom”. LaPierre used his address to the conservative conference CPAC to hit out at anti-gun campaigners, who, led by young survivors of the shooting, have attempted to make political headway in the last week. “They fantasise about more laws stopping what other laws have failed to stop,” the National Rifle Association executive vice-president said. “So many existing laws were ignored.” He added: “They don’t care if...

    The Washington Times ^ | February 22, 2018 | David Sherfinski
    Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president and CEO of the National Rifle Association, on Thursday called for more trained armed security personnel in schools in the wake of the recent Florida shooting. He said school districts, PTAs, teachers unions, and law enforcement officials have to come together to implement new protections, “including effective, trained, armed security that will absolutely protect every innocent child in this country.” Speaking at the 2018 Conservative Political Action Conference, Mr. LaPierre said the idea that armed security makes people less safe is “completely ridiculous.” “We must immediately harden our schools. Every day, young children are being...
  • Wayne Lapierre CPAC 2018: SHREDS Media, Democrats & Fbi 2/22/18

    02/22/2018 8:10:30 AM PST · by sheikdetailfeather · 13 replies
    Wayne LaPierre, the CEO of the NRA, made an unannounced visit to CPAC on Thursday morning — where he promptly ripped the media, Democrats, and even the FBI in the wake “As usual, the opportunists wasted not one second to exploit for political gain,” LaPierre said. He added, “The breathless national media [was] eager to smear the NRA.” LaPierre’s appearance was not publicized on the published CPAC agenda — released earlier this week — so as to minimize public protest. But on the agenda given to attendees Thursday, LaPierre’s name was included. As millions of Americans searched for meaningful solutions...

    ** Pamela Geller has more. During the election The Gateway Pundit was the fourth most influential conservative news source. Following the 2016 election Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review funded research (with money from the Soros Open Society) to find out what happened. What they found was that conservative Americans whole-heartedly rejected the liberal media and went online and to social media to find the truth. The university researchers found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source during the election. (Behind Breitbart, FOX News, The Hill — and, of course, Matt Drudge and The Drudge Report)...
  • Vanity: Gary Johnson Speaking at CPAC? Huh?

    02/19/2018 6:25:16 AM PST · by rightwingintelligentsia · 34 replies
    Failed Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson is scheduled to speak at CPAC this year. That's interesting, to say the least. What does everyone think of the rest of the line-up? Besides POTUS and the VP, it looks like a mixed bag of conservative regulars, RINOs, and Never Trumpers with a few more slightly edgier choices. Does anyone here attend CPAC any more? Would be interested in your thoughts and experiences.

    WASHINGTON, DC, February 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) abruptly rescinded its acceptance of pro-family group MassResistance as an exhibitor at its annual national meeting next week while permitting the pro-LGBT group, Log Cabin Republicans, to remain. In a stinging statement issued by MassResistance in response to CPAC “banning” the group, founder Brian Camenker asked, “Is the ‘Conservative Political Action Conference’ really conservative?” CPAC had officially approved MassResistance for a table in January, but last week CPAC Executive Director Dan Schneider notified the organization that it had been disinvited. CPAC justified its decision citing the group’s...

    The Daily Signal ^ | 03/10/2017 | John York
    In his first public remarks since the election, White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon recently told a packed house at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that the “deconstruction of the administrative state” was one of the major goals of the Trump administration. In so doing, Bannon took aim at our modern form of government, in which legislative, executive, and judicial powers are delegated to myriad agencies and bureaus that have come to comprise a fourth branch of government. For constitutionalists of all stripes, the administrative state undermines the idea of representative government by empowering bureaucrats at the expense of...
  • 'Full Frontal' host Samantha Bee sorry for mocking cancer patient's 'Nazi' haircut

    "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee apologized for a segment on her TBS show Wednesday night that made fun of a man's haircut. In the segment about this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Bee mocked an attendee saying his haircut resembled a Nazi. "This year, the bow ties were gone, replaced by Nazi hair, Nazi hair, Nazi hair," the video narrates while focusing in on 20-year-old student Kyle Coddington. It turns out, Coddington has a partially-shaved head because he is battling brain cancer. "When @iamsambee makes fun of your brother for having 'Nazi hair,'" Coddington's sister tweeted at the comedian....

    As I look back on my first time attending CPAC in 2012 to this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, I can’t help but think how much the landscape has changed.It wasn’t until the 2008 campaign that I really got involved in politics.After the GOP chose Sen. John McCain for their nominee, I was done with the Republican party…until Sarah Palin stepped on stage.Palin, for me, was the epitome of conservatism and all that’s good about America. (I’ve written about this many times.)But somewhere along the way, Palin’s political star faded and as many of my friends have pointed out,...

    This year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) could have been titled President Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Don. For the first time in years, most of America’s premier conservatives gathered to find themselves the proverbial dog who chased and caught the car. With the White House, Congress, and most likely SCOTUS in the near future, the big question seemed to be “What the hell do we do now?”            Clearly, one of the answers was drink, and there was plenty of that. The bars were only lightly packed this year because a lot of...
