The Washington Examiner notes today that President Trump has been invited to attend the annual CPAC convention (Conservative Political Action Conference). However, as long-term CTH readers will note, we hold no positive opinion on CPAC.
I would question if the time has come to conclude CPAC is a gathering of the same institutional political types that got us into this mess. Y’all know my answer to that question has existed for seven years: CPAC is an assembly of fraud and abuse.
In their effort to be politically correct (aka culturally Marxist) the list of people who have been banned from CPAC is long. Robert Spencer, Pam Geller, Milo, and now Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R, GA). Any strong voice who has taken on the leftist movement in the U.S. (without regard for the nonsense rules espoused by the Alinsky community) has been ostracized from the conservative conference.
CPAC has, in essence, become a place where the establishment GOP dictates whose voice is permitted and who is essentially too deplorable to be heard. Yes, there are some strong voices that show up, including President Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Nigel Farage, Michelle Malkin, and other axe swinging wolverines who are deep in the fight. However, the brutally honest point is things have changed…..
There should be new rules and a new confrontational attitude if we are going to save this republic. CPAC and the pinkie raised champagne toasts just ain’t cutting it. We are on the damn precipice, and the CPAC crew act like reaching across the aisle is a possible way to avoid the gallows. This is a cycle of abuse we can no longer tolerate. We will not survive.
I do not forget when we gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives; and when Paul Ryan took over as speaker; and Ryan passed another three trillion omnibus spending bill with full support of Democrats…. and then showed up to a standing ovation at the “conservative conference.” WHAT the HELL was being conserved?
The time is now for CPAC to reform…. OR the time has come for CPAC to be abandoned in favor of a national convention that supports the 75 million+ Donald Trump voters. CPAC is not that convention… not even close.
WASHINGTON – Organizers of the biggest annual gathering of conservatives say they have invited President Donald Trump to speak at their conference in Florida next week.
The Conservative Political Action Conference is due to start next Thursday in Orlando and already features some of the biggest names from the Trump administration, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
Chairman of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp said he had extended an invitation to Trump himself.
“I’d love to see him come to CPAC next,” he told the Washington Examiner. (read more)
CTH is in the fight for our nation regardless of CPAC or not CPAC. CTH will fight beside anyone, any vulgarian patriot, who will fight the progressive left and their intent to destroy our constitutional republic…. but we cannot keep acting like we have time to convince the other side to stop destroying our nation – THEY DON’T CARE.
Those within the club, in this example the DC club, want those outside the club to accept there are two systems of rights and responsibilities. The club members have all powerful rights and no responsibilities for consequences; the non club members have lesser rights and full responsibility for consequences. This is the cornerstone of a tiered or classist society outlook.
“Rules for thee and not for me” is more than a catch phrase; it is an actual worldview with a history in political control. They are not hypocrites, they are living out their creed.
It is critical, actually beyond critical, that people start to accept what they are witnessing is not some misplaced system created by bad actors. Those bad actors are actually aligned political elites who benefit from numbing society to the sheer audacity of their ideology.
The truth doesn’t care about your feelings. Either we fight back using every tool and voice in our arsenal, or we will lose. It really is that simple.
We need lots of trumpets, with soaring sounds that pierce the sky. MAGA Trumpets that play “Reveille” to wake more people up. Trumpets that broadcast victories. Trumpets that play “Taps” (when needed) over losses. MAGA Trumpets that signal which way to run to the battle. Trumpets that provide cadence and courage.
WE NEED TRUMPETS
The CPAC assembly pretends to support of what’s left of our Republic and the assembly, bleats dismay at what’s being done to our Constitution in broad daylight. However, their words are always combined with speeches that end with “buy my book about it”… AND THOSE ACTIONS are not changing what’s actually happening.
Those whose hold on power depends on deception are always able to find an audience of those willing to be deceived.
Now, I accept the CPAC audience of those willing to be deceived is a flexible group in terms of numbers and identities; and even those who have been in that audience for some time may one day walk away from it; but why wait to accept your surrounding until your wrists are locked in the guillotine? What is it that makes folks stay in that audience?
It is time for a national MAGA conference and let those who wish to join our assembly petition for their right to participate. Let us, WE THE PEOPLE, define the rules of our support, not beg or appreciate the DC beltway republican cocktail party for an invitation to their back-patting weekend that results in absolutely nothing.
We ain’t got no more time for this Bulls**t!
