  • Hillary Staffer On CPAC: ‘I Saw A Big Tent’

    Annafi Wahed, a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer, ventured into the Conservative Political Action Conference. You would think that she would repeat liberal talking points, bash conservatives, and say we’re all insane. Nope—it was grounded, and she even admitted to being nervous in her initial reaction to the conference. She saw a “big tent” at CPAC, and even wondered if a conservative could venture into a liberal conference in the same welcoming manner (via WSJ): Where some saw a circus, I saw a big tent. I spoke with Jennifer C. Williams, chairman of the Trenton, N.J., Republican Committee and a...
  • Hillary campaign staffer: You won’t believe what CPAC taught me about conservatives

    (snip) --- In retrospect, I’m embarrassed at how nervous I was when I arrived. I found myself singing along to “God Bless the USA” with a hilariously rowdy group of college Republicans, having nuanced discussions about gun control and education policy with people from all walks of life, nodding my head in agreement with parts of Ben Shapiro’s speech, and coming away with a greater determination to burst ideological media bubbles.
  • Trump's horrendous CPAC speech

    President Trump's speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference started out as a relatively tame performance touting signature accomplishments such as tax cuts and judicial nominations, but it took an ugly turn as he moved to the topic of immigration, broadly painting those who come here as a result of the lottery system as "horrendous." The context was that Trump was lambasting Democrats for not agreeing to his terms as part of an immigration deal. Though they're willing to give him funding for the wall, he said, they won't budge on other issues, such as chain migration and ending the...

    Powerline Blog ^ | 2/25/18 | John Hinderaker all-star panel [was held] on the topic “#TrumpedUp: Unmasking the Deep State.” It was moderated by Andy McCarthy and included Byron York, Sara Carter and Chuck Ross. The discussion was excellent, although most was familiar to obsessive followers of the news. McCarthy posed the question, why is it so hard to get to the bottom of the Obama scandals, with both Congress and the Department of Justice ostensibly in Republican hands? The answer, Andy thinks, is that bureaucratic imperatives appear to trump everything else, even with Trump’s appointees. There is hope, however: the DOJ Inspector General’s report, which will...

    With all this new in-fighting over former RNC chair Michael Steele and comments made about him by a CPAC official, let's not forget that some of us never thought he should have gotten the job he was clearly unqualified for and did tremendous damage to the brand.

    Former UK Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage praised President Trump during his address Friday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), saying that his decision to back Trump in 2016 “was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life.” He further stated that Trump “exceeded all expectations” and that the US leader is “on the way to being a truly great president of this country.” Having spoken with Trump earlier in the day, Farage said that he found Trump “at ease with himself,” “in good humor,” and “at the very top of his game.” “The establishment are...
  • What was the name of the woman who sang the National Anthem at the beginning of CPAC?

    02/24/2018 2:55:20 PM PST · by SamAdams76 · 10 replies
    I'm having a hard time finding this on the Internet. Maybe I'm not using the right search terms or mix of Boolean algebra. This bothers me because before singing the national anthem, she did a radio interview with Alex Marlow on Breitbart and she came across as a wonderful conservative woman who I would like to follow on the Twitter. She said her name and so did Alex but I was in the car and didn't write it down. Now I'm trying to find it on the Internets and failing badly!

    The Washington Times annual straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has again found overwhelming support for President Donald Trump and his administration’s policies. The poll found that 93 percent of respondents approve of the job Trump is doing, a seven percent rise from the figure of 86 percent last year. Seventy-five percent of attendees now believe America is going in the right direction, compared to just 44 percent of respondents last year. “The conservative movement has found a new leader,” said Jim McLaughlin, who organized the poll.

    On Friday, President Trump addressed the largest crowd of conservative activists in the history of CPAC. It was another memorable Trump speech, listing his many accomplishments and encouraging the crowd to support Republican candidates in the mid-term elections. For 80 minutes, the President discussed an array of issues such as tax cuts, judicial appointments, immigration and the strong economy. To the delight of the crowd, Trump claimed that “we have got seven years to go folks.” Of course, this did not thrill the President’s many enemies in the national news media. MSNBC’s Ali Veshi said the President’s speech was similar...

The coup attempt against President Trump is rapidly collapsing, but the deep state is still in cover-up mode.

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more...

    NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — During his CPAC speech, Donald Trump took a moment to savage Barack Obama, John Kerry and the Iran nuclear deal as the “worst negotiated” deal in history. “We declined to certify the terrible, one-sided Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd. “That was a horrible deal.” “Whoever heard — you give $150 billion to a nation that has no respect for you whatsoever?” Trump asked. “They are saying death to America while they are signing the agreement.” Trump took direct aim at Kerry, who was secretary of state and helped negotiate the agreement...

    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...

    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...

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...
