  • AWKWARD: Ben Jacobs tweet about wanting to punch a Conservative journo hasn’t aged well

    Well, this is awkward. In case you don’t recognize Mr. Jacobs, he is the journalist that newly elected Republican, Greg Gianforte, allegedly body slammed the night before the special election. […] Oh yeah, and did we mention Benji is only 16? …
  • Steve Bannon Is Right. It’s Time to Deconstruct the Administrative State.

    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 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...
  • NY Times' Rutenberg Tries to Enlist Republicans to Defend Media, Oppose Trump

    NewsBusters.org ^ | February 26, 2017 | Clay Waters
    Sunday’s New York Times featured the latest installment in easily-freaked media reporter Jim Rutenberg’s crusade against President Trump: “Trump’s Undermining Reporters May Haunt Republicans.” The online headline foreshadowed Rutenberg’s unlikely attempt to enlist Republicans in defense of the press and against Trump: “Will the Real Democracy Lovers Please Stand Up?” while the text box delivered an empty threat: “This strategy could push Republicans into a corner later.” Rutenberg made no acknowledgement of the increasingly unconcealed anti-Trump partisanship displayed by the media, including his own newspaper. Rutenberg’s own infamous front-page column from August 2016 argued that the rules of journalistic objectivity...

    Fox News ^ | Feb. 25, 20117 | Fox News
    Conservatives appear fully behind new Republican President Trump, based on a straw poll Saturday at the annual CPAC summit in which attendees gave him an 86 percent approval rating and overwhelmingly agreed that he was “realigning” the movement. Trump, whose views do not always align with those of fiscal or social conservatives, received high marks in the poll’s 12 questions. Perhaps the most applause came when the event organizers announced that 33 percent of respondents said “reforming the tax code” was the biggest Trump campaign promise they wanted him to fulfill. “Donald Trump is actually doing things the conservative movement...

    Vox ^ | February 24, 2017
    How a 16-year-old took down Milo Julia closely follows political news from her home in Canada, with a deep interest in American politics. She has been particularly alarmed by the recent rise of Yiannopoulos and others like him. So as soon as she heard Yiannopoulos would speak at CPAC, she was appalled. Then an old moment popped in her head. She remembered hearing an obscure podcast, in which Yiannopoulos defended the idea of “13-year-olds” having sex with “older men,” arguing that child molestation provided a “sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship” for teenagers. Her memory was right. She found the...

    Nigel Farage has travelled to Washington to tell Donald Trump's followers that they are part of a "global revolution" that began with Brexit. Mr Farage was greeted with a standing ovation at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and he spoke of the "Brexit mania" he had witnessed after travelling to the US to take part in a Trump rally. "I'm proud to be a part of that campaign, I really am," he said, adding that he was beginning to feel "more American" ever since Mr Trump's victory. More

    A full-throated defense of conservatism, and a re-iteration of goals and objectives We could debate the relative merits of CPAC all day. Is it a right-wing celebrity showcase? Yes. Is it a clique-y gathering of self-congratulation and self-promotion? Probably. But… Does it have a long history of great speakers and excellent speeches? Absolutely. Vice President Mike Pence has addressed CPAC several times, but I suspect last night’s speech - his second major address since inauguration day - will be long remembered.

    My long lost identical twin brother. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone. A film crew from Gentlemen’s Quarterly dropped by the Capital Research Center booth today in the “Hub” at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside the nation’s capital. GQ is now home to the buffoonish Keith Olbermann, who blocks people on Twitter at the slightest provocation. (He’s done it to me twice — not that I’m complaining.) That’s his prerogative but he’s still a goof.
