  • How To Think About Conservatism Post-Trump (Barf Alert?)

    08/28/2020 3:56:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 29 replies ^ | August 28, 2020 | Josh Hammer
    With this week's Republican National Convention and the formal coronation of Donald Trump as the party's 2020 presidential nominee, many have seized the moment to speculate about the political future of the Republican Party -- and, by extension, the intellectual and pragmatic future of American conservatism itself. The 2016 romp of Trump, the reality TV star-turned-commander in chief, upended decades of outmoded GOP orthodoxies and ushered in a seismic shift in American politics. Throughout the Cold War, and even in the two-and-a-half decades between the fall of the Berlin Wall and Trump's infamous campaign-launching 2015 golden escalator descent, conservatism in...
  • Can Science Lead to Dumb Panic?

    WASHINGTON -- Can science lead to dumb panic? It's a question I've been asking as the stock market cannibalized itself in response to the coronavirus outbreak, academia shuttered classrooms and other interests did their utmost to convince their customers that they could get along just fine without them. There is no question the coronavirus is a health threat to millions of Americans, especially the elderly and people with chronic illnesses. We have to protect them. What's disconcerting, though, is how many enterprises with no reported cases in towns with no community spreading were so fearful that they shut everything down....

    Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) on Monday announced that he would self-quarantine at his home after coming into contact with a person who later tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The announcement makes Collins the third GOP lawmaker to say they're taking the precautionary measure. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) separately said on Sunday that they would self-quarantine until 14 days had passed since interacting with the individual at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland. “This afternoon, I was notified by CPAC that they discovered a photo of myself and the patient who has tested...

    President Trump used part of his CPAC speech on Saturday to criticize former Vice President Joe Biden's mental acuity, joking that he wouldn't be able to handle being president if he won in November. "How could you be easier to beat than Joe? The guy can't put two sentences together," Trump told a crowd of conservatives. He added that Biden's "not going to be running the government. He's just going to be sitting in a home someplace and people are going to be running it for him." Trump warned that while Biden was moderate compared to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.,...

    A reality television star who has made a career out of cutting deals with average citizens decried the "insanity" of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign. Pawn Stars host Rick Harrison defended capitalism and backed hard work as the key to success during his second appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. "Bernie Sanders wants to tax me at 90%," Harrison said during a question-and-answer session after his 10-minute speech at the event in National Harbor, Maryland. "Why would I want to open up a business if I'm not going to make any money?" Sanders, a socialist, is...

    The annual conservative conference CPAC is slated to take place later this week outside of Washington, D.C. at the Gaylord Hotel overlooking the National Harbor from Wednesday, Feb. 26th through Saturday, Feb. 29th. President Donald Trump’s closest and most loyal allies will be in attendance, and the commander in chief himself will deliver the keynote address. After his acquittal by the Senate on impeachment charges, Trump gave high praise to CPAC chairman Matt Schlapp; a former President Bush official turned Trump loyalist. On Wednesday, a panel on connecting to GOP voters to messaging will take place with three senior Trump...

    NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — Congressman Steve Scalise introduced a panel discussion called “Prescription for Failure: The Ills of Socialized Medicine" at CPAC on Thursday. He established what was at stake in 2020: “2020 will be a contrast election,” he said, between Trump’s freedom agenda or socialism. “You don’t want socialism, you surely don’t want socialized medicine,” he said. “Tens of thousands of Canadians come to America for life-saving treatment. Do you see Americans going to Canada for life-saving treatment?” he asked rhetorically. “Healthcare is only one example of what’s at stake in this election,” he said, before concluding that individual...
  • 'Anti-Greta' teen activist to speak at CPAC 'Climate-change alarmism at its very core is a despicably anti-human ideology'

    A German teenager dubbed the “anti-Greta” – climate sceptics’ answer to the schoolgirl activist Greta Thunberg – is set to address the biggest annual gathering of US grassroots conservatives. Naomi Seibt, 19, who styles herself as a “climate sceptic” or “climate realist”, will this week address the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington, joining speakers including Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence. Seibt is in the pay of the Heartland Institute, a thinktank closely allied with the White House that denies established science showing humans are heating the planet with dangerous consequences. CPAC will be the biggest stage yet...

    The organizer of the Conservative Political Action Conference defended his decision to uninvite Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Ut.) — saying his vote for more witnesses and documents in President Trump’s impeachment trial would make him unsafe at the event. “This year, I’d actually be afraid for his physical safety, people are so mad at him,” American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp said in an interview Saturday on ‘Full Court Press’ with Greta Van Susteren. “The biggest problem we have with Mitt Romney is not that he’s just an individual following his political course. It’s the fact that he’s lied so continuously...

    A stage play chronicling the anti-Trump text messages between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page will take the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Feb. 27, Fox News has learned. The entire play, "FBI Lovebirds: UnderCovers," is derived, verbatim, from the text messages between Strzok and Page, as well as the pair’s answers to prolonged questioning in private congressional hearings. It is the first time CPAC will have a play staged in its nearly 50 years as one of the largest annual conservative conferences. Labeled by Politico as “Hamilton for the MAGA...

    The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year. Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday. "BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in...

    A protester shouted and threw what appeared to be Russian flags at Mr. Trump, screaming “Trump is treason!” and “We should be talking about treason not tax cuts!” CBS News’ Nancy Cordes reports that the man has been identified as Ryan Clayton of the Americans Take Action group. Clayton made a similar disturbance at the Capitol when he threw a large Russian flag in the way of Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, back in July when he met with Senate Intelligence investigators as part of their ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. This was Ryan Clayton from...

    President Donald Trump plotted his takedown of accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s elite inner circle during the 2016 election, convening a meeting with then-National Enquirer owner David Pecker prior to Trump’s comment at CPAC 2015 about how Bill Clinton has a Jeffrey Epstein problem. Vanity Fair reports: “Trump had been following the story closely. In the week or so leading up to his CPAC speech, David Pecker, who owned the Enquirer until it was sold in ruin earlier this year, visited Trump on the 26th floor of Trump Tower, bringing along an issue with a Prince Andrew and Epstein-related cover,...

    Google’s senior director of U.S. public policy, Adam Kovacevich appeared to describe the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) as a “sideshow Circus,” in a leaked audio recording in which he also argued that Google should remain a sponsor of the conference to “steer” the conservative movement “away from nationalistic and incendiary comments.” The comments came to light in leaked audio files allegedly of a company-wide meeting at Google, part of which is now exclusively reported by Breitbart News. Another part of the transcript was released last Friday on Tucker Carlson Tonight, while further snippets revealing Google’s funding of establishment conservative...
