    Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will be a headline speaker at a Conservative Political Action Conference event in Las Vegas later this month, the conference announced Friday. The anti-establishment environmental lawyer has run a longshot primary campaign against President Biden, but is expected to change affiliation to independent next week. “Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a unique voice in advocating for the defunding of the weaponized bureaucracy and ensuring the constitutional right of medical freedom,” CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement. “Kennedy joining such an important event is a reflection of the splintering of the left-wing...

    American Conservative Union and CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp reportedly hired a Catholic priest to perform an exorcism at CPAC’s offices following the resignation of multiple staffers who were unhappy about their pay. According to Daily Beast senior political reporter Roger Sollenberger, who spoke to “multiple people with knowledge of the exorcisms,” the priest “sprinkled holy water around the CPAC premises and blessed all the staff, regardless of their faith” during the exorcism last year. The priest also “placed a medallion above doors in the offices” to “ward off evil spirits,” according to the Daily Beast, which reported that the medallions...

    Hungary’s populist prime minister likened liberalism to a “virus” in an opening speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in the Hungarian capital on Thursday, painting a picture of a global right-wing movement mobilizing to defeat “progressive elites.” Viktor Orban’s speech at CPAC Hungary centered around battling what he frequently described as “woke culture,” and delved primarily into hot-button cultural topics such as transgender and LGBTQ+ rights, migration and the content of education for children. After receiving a standing ovation, Orban said Hungary had become “world-famous” for its hard-line migration and cultural policies, and offered those in attendance a recipe...

    EXCLUSIVE: Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis will headline the Heritage Foundation’s 50th leadership summit in April after skipping the annual Conservative Political Action Conference attended by former President Donald Trump earlier this month. DeSantis, who pundits widely expect to launch a White House bid later this year but who currently remains on the 2024 sidelines, will deliver a "major policy speech" concluding Heritage’s two-day annual summit on April 21 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, according to a press release by Heritage. "Conservatives are craving a bold and visionary leader who gets things done...

    This Saturday at CPAC, Donald Trump gave one of his most raw speeches to date—a quotable masterpiece that at one point even brought me back to one of the first things I came to truly admire about the man: his 2016 primary-dismantling of the Republican Establishment. At the time, it was a bit jarring to behold, being a near two-decade long supporter of GWB and the Bush family in general. Trump spoke uncomfortable, yet undeniable truths as he cut down long-time Republicans. It needed to be said and I, as well as many others, needed to hear it. Watching as...

    What does it mean to be a conservative wireless network? Or a conservative dating app? What about a cookie company that makes Donald Trump–themed gingerbread men? As mainstream corporations have embraced progressive political positions in recent years, some conservatives are responding by providing a politicized consumer experience of their own. "People are seeing a shift in corporate America having a lot of influence on politics," said Chrissi Bretz, the director of outreach at Public Sq., a database of conservative-oriented businesses. "We're seeing large corporations spending money on agendas." In interviews with Reason, right-wing business owners at the Conservative Political Action...

    I did not attend CPAC 2023 this year for various reasons, mostly time and cost. Compared to Florida, Washington D.C. is prohibitively expensive, with fewer food and lodging options. Also, after two years of a popular, and well-received (not to mention warmer) event, I wasn’t interested in wasting energy, money, and time dealing with the cold, crime-ridden, and freedom-restricted swamp that is D.C.From attendee and news reports, my instincts were right, and apparently, others felt the same.

    I find this extremely intriguing and if true, which it likely is, then this is unethical at least and certainly illegal. Kari said this person called her and told her that he would come to her house in Arizona because it had to be discussed in person. Kari claimed she was offered a position, title and money by a man from out east, to stay out of politics for the next two years. This would keep her out of contention, for the Arizona Senate seat and as VP Candidate for whom ever wins the nomination. The reason for this thread...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday appeared to poke fun at the size of the crowd that attended former President Trump’s keynote speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over the weekend, saying that the room was “half-full.” “You saw the scenes at CPAC, that room was half-full,” Christie said on ABC’s “This Week.” “The reason I don’t think the rallies are going on … I don’t think the rallies would be nearly as big as they were before.” Camera shots from Trump’s speech at the conference showed that the room was not nearly at full...

    Former President Donald Trump boldly proclaimed that the Republican Party is “never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush” during his Saturday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Trump listed numerous “villains and scoundrels” from whom he hopes to liberate the United States, including globalists, communists, and the fake news media. Trump told the CPAC crowd: With you at my side, we will demolish the deep state. We will expel the war mongers. They are people that don’t get it, although in some cases they get it, they get it for their...

"People give [Trump] a lot of advice on how he should be less himself. And I think, at this moment in our nation's history, with all the garbage that's pushed on our kids and...
