This is an exciting week for conservatives, with the annual CPAC gathering taking place in Washington.
The highlight of the event was President Trump, who spoke today at the place that many believe was the start of his political rise. His rousing speech can be found here, and in it he continued one of his most daring accomplishments so far as President: Exposing the media as partisans.
What is your favorite quote from President Donald Trump’s speech at CPAC? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll. As usual, he gave us a lot of colorful options.
Vice President Mike Pence also delivered a stirring address – check it out here. His overall theme: For conservatives, this is our time to lead the nation.
What was your favorite quote from the Vice-President’s CPAC speech? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll – and again, plenty of great options to choose from.
In addition to the President and Vice-President, CPAC this year is featuring speeches from some of the biggest names in our conservative movement, including:
- Sen. Ted Cruz, who highlighted the need for term limits;
- Gov. Scott Walker, who urged conservatives to “go big, go bold”;
- British politician Nigel Farage, who spoke of the “Global Revolution” sparked by President Trump;
- White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, who shared her thought-provoking views on feminism;
- Cabinet secretaries including Betsy DeVos;
- Conservative leaders such as Carly Fiorina, Ambassador John Bolton and NRA Chairman Wayne LaPierre;
- Media heavyweights like Lou Dobbs and Judge Jeanine Pirro.
That’s a solid lineup – of these conservative leaders who joined President Trump and Vice-President Pence at CPAC, which one would you most want to meet with one-on-one to talk policy and politics? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll.
Immigration has been a big topic at CPAC this year, and this piece from the Washington Times gives a very powerful look at the difference between legal and illegal immigration – something we should never lose sight of.
But under Obama, we have lost sight of that, meaning that criminal aliens get a better deal than innocent Americans, and Democrats are going ballistic over the enforcement of laws their very own party signed into law.
As other countries struggle with their ill-conceived open-borders policies (as usual, President Trump was right and the media was wrong about the situation in Sweden), don’t let “fake news” cloud this issue – a border wall will protect America.
You get the sense from CPAC of something that we’re seeing discussed from truthful news outlets: That under President Trump, it’s “morning in America” once again. The economy seems to be rebounding already, and there’s likely much more economic growth to come.
Have a great weekend!
