Glenn Thrush’s New York Times Article Distorts What Donald Trump Said


It may very well be that this was Glenn Thrush’s editor’s fault, but his article in the New York Times about Donald Trump’s CPAC speech really distorts something the President said. In fact, it distorts it in such a way that the only reason I know about it is that a friend who is a Trump critic sent it to me. Even he notes that though he does not care for the President, the...

At CPAC, Hillsdale College President Discusses Conservatism and Trump

Arnn at CPAC 2017

There are few affiliations of which I am prouder than my relationship with Hillsdale College. Its small, beautiful campus in rural Michigan is juxtaposed by the enormous power it projects across the nation, especially within the conservative movement. Yesterday, Hillsdale College President, Dr. Larry Arnn, addressed CPAC about the nature of conservatism and what he believes Trump must do to claim...

Pence: Time to Wake Up From Obamacare Nightmare


Vice President Mike Pence didn’t mince any words when he addressed CPAC on Thursday, making it clear that when it comes to repealing and replacing the Unaffordable Care Act, the Trump administration would not settle for any half-baked measures: Let me assure you, America’s Obamacare nightmare is about to end, despite the best efforts of liberal activists at town halls around the country...

What They Will and Will Not Accept


Milo got blown up by his own words and deeds. ACU and Simon and Schuster just hoped to cash in before it happened and now they cannot. Neither now are taking a heroic stand and neither need be applauded.

NEW: Trump Will Speak at CPAC


Now that Milo Yiannopoulos is out, we have learned that President Trump will speak at CPAC this year. The Hill reported Monday morning: At the conference, Trump will join an already-full list of White House officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, as well as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who will take the stage together on Thursday. I’m still...



I have been a critic of CPAC for some time. It is mostly driven by sponsors who pay money who then get to set an agenda that is not always conservative. It has become more the Republican Political Action Conference than the Conservative Political Action Conference. But because CPAC is so identified with the conservative movement, occasionally conservatives should stand up and speak about its...

Trump’s New Inclusive GOP Doesn’t Include Conservatives


Ah, the troubles of being rich. You know, when you have a rambling speech about your hands and clubs and balls to give in Kansas, but CPAC is in National Harbor, Maryland. Choices, choices. Gas up the old biz jet, or take the 757? It’s less than an hour from Teterboro or White Plains or wherever the Apfelstrudelfuhrer’s Luftflotte (credit to Kevin Williamson for Apfelstrudelfuhrer) is...
