CPAC 2015 : A REVIEW

In case you were interested in anything,here’s some of the video and related commentary.

Cruz: “The Next 20 Months Are Going to Be Very Dangerous”

You know, prior presidents have been repudiated [and] they’ve reacted with contrition. [P]resident Obama, instead, reacted with anger and defiance.”

“I believe the next 20 months we are going to see a degree of lawlessness that will exceed anything we’ve seen in the previous six years,” he continued. “I think we’re going to see executive order after executive order. I think we’re going to see the abuse of regulations in a way that crushes small businesses, destroys jobs. I think we are going to see the continued weaponization of the IRS in the federal government, and it is going to be dangerous.”

Scott Walker Is Trying to Woo CPAC. And It’s Working.
http://cdn-media.nationaljournal.com/?controllerName=image&action=get&id=44859&format=nj2013_10_columns
This is from National Journal,so take it for what it is.

The Wisconsin governor continued his pivot toward the right in his CPAC speech Thursday, and the crowd loved it.
“Here in America there is a reason we celebrate the Fourth of July and not April 15th,” Walker said. “Because in America, we celebrate our independence from the government, not our dependence on it.”

Walker got an unexpected opportunity to flex his legendary anti-union muscles on stage when protesters interrupted his speech by shouting from the crowd.

“Those voices cannot drown out the millions of Americans who want us to stand up for the hardworking taxpayers,” Walker said to the protesters.

Joni Ernst Honors Military Veterans at CPAC.

“At this time, if you are able, I would like to ask all of our military men and women to please rise and allow us to show our deep gratitude and appreciation,” Ernst had just said.

Across the room some three dozen veterans rose, and applause broke out

Twitter harvest

California biting the ass that feeds

Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time: “Rich people pay something like 70 percent. And here in California, I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying. It’s ridiculous.”

Palin Liberty Pose

2013_03 17 Palin Liberty Big Gulp front

Sarah Palin’s wildly popular CPAC speech, punctuated by the Big Gulp swig heard ’round the word, has sparked a new late-night, post-CPAC trend … The Palin Liberty Pose.

TWEET – Reading the thousands of blogs, tweets, news stories and comments from Leftists saying Sarah Palin is irrelevant and not worth their time…

2013_03 17 Pope Francis Tweets

TWEET: 50,000 estimated in St. Peter’s Square for Pope Francis’ first Angelus. Crowd very upbeat.

Michael Moore tweeted a fake photo of ‘Pope Francis’ giving Communion to Argentine dictator Jorge Rafael Videla. To his credit, Moore has acknowledged his error and told folks to stop circulating the picture.

Ben Carson told CPAC he got ‘nastygrams’ calling him the N-word after he criticized Obama. [50:51]

Occupy Astroturf

Michael Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, told a reporter “WE did not pay people to picket.”  It’s a classic dodge to answer dishonestly, while telling the truth. If by “WE” he meant the NATIONAL AFL-CIO’s money, there is still lots of wiggle room for local unions to be using funds to  astroturf at protests.

The CPAC protester who told a reporter he was being paid to be there also said he was from Local 100. The web site where the Occupy CPAC events were advertised was the Washington DC Metro Council of the AFL-CIO. Neither one is the big honkin’ national AFL-CIO that dear Michael could be thinking of when he says WE didn’t pay protesters.

Another reason not to believe Trumka?  He claimed the unions can’t afford to pay protesters.  Riiiight. The AFL-CIO spent more than $50 million to support Democrats in the 2010 elections! Of course they have money to pay protesters.

Anyway, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard people say they were paid by their union to show up at a political rally or protest. According to one source, they’ve been doing it for decades.

THE LINCOLN’S BIRTHDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

ON FEB.12,1809 OUR 16TH PRESIDENT,ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS BORN.

Ting,I’m chartreuse with envy that you got to see Sarah live.I watched on CSPAN and like the crowd there I got a little impatient with all the stuff they had to do before she spoke.I sat there watching her deliver her awesome message and kept asking myself:WHY THE HELL ISN’T SHE OUR CANDIDATE?????

People backing Newt claim he could beat Obama in a debate.Sarah would gut him like a salmon.If the media thinks they’ve intimidated her into shutting up they better think again.

There is no one–no one in the Republican party that can command an audience the way she can.It takes a lot to completely disembowel somebody and seem so polite about it.She even got in a dig at the establishment GOP by saying some Tea Party members WILL have leadership positions next session.

I’ve read elsewhere the last few days that there is a possibility of a brokered convention and Jeb Bush might be drafted.We don’t need another Bush right now but can you imagine Gov. Palin coming out the winner?The sound of liberal heads exploding would be the stuff dreams are made of.It’s more than we can hope for,but we know she’ll be heard from again soon.

I saw the Occubaggers trying to disrupt her speech and were shouted down by folks shouting USA!USA!
Dana Loesch,who gave a great speech of her own,followed these rodents outside.

THE NO FOOTBALL SATURDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

Pitchers and catchers report to training camp within 2 weeks.I’m a lifelong Cubs fan,but hope springs eternal.

In response to Mafia Rose’s request,here are videos from yesterday’s CPAC convention.Maybe Chrissy or Bob can load these onto the candidate pages.I still don’t know how to embed videos other than youtubes.

THIS IS NEWT’S SPEECH

THIS IS ANDREW BREITBART’S SPEECH
He says he has video of Barry in college that will come out during the election.
With all due respect,unless it shows him raping Maya Angelou or pissing on the Quran,it will not make an iota of difference to the tribe that blindly follow wherever he leads.

THIS IS GOV. SCOTT WALKER’S SPEECH
This man has put up with more crap than anybody should be made to endure.He is one of the future stars of conservatism.

THIS IS ALLEN WEST’S SPEECH
If you only have time to view one speech,make it this one!!

THIS IS ROMNEY’S SPEECH

THIS IS RICK SANTORUM’S SPEECH

WESTBORO BAPTIST VERMIN TO PROTEST AT POWELL BROTHERS MEMORIAL
These are the two little boys who were hacked to death by their deranged father who set the house on fire and killed himself.He was also suspected of killing his wife 2 years earlier.

NAVY NAMES USS GABRIELLE GIFFORDS

OK,here’s where somebody gets offended.Being the incurable cynic I am,this is madness.Sure,she survived a shooting by a deranged left wing maniac,but why does she deserve to have a warship named after her?Because she’s a sainted liberal victim?Six people actually died in that massacre including a federal judge.Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with a gun the Mexican cartels got from Holder & Co.
Make no mistake,Giffords is as far left as they come.Maybe Obama arranged this as a make-good since he threw her astronaut husband out of work when he cancelled the space program.Whatever the reason,I can think of a lot of people who would deserve this honor far more than this woman.

THE FRIDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

NO,WHITE HOUSE NOT ‘COMPROMISING’ ON BIRTH CONTROL MANDATE
First,he has absolutely NO authority to usurp the Constitution.
Second,anything he appears to backtrack on will be quickly reversed a nanosecond after he steals the election.
Third,he claims he’ll force insurance companies pay for contraception.Do you think they’ll pay for it?Nope,their policyholders will–dollar for dollar.

Could it be because Quinn doubled the corporate tax and raised personal income tax by 66%?

THE THURSDAY CPAC GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

When I was 8,I joined the Cub Scouts.At 11 I went into the Boy Scouts as a rite of passage,as many boys did back then.There was a local Scout camp about 30 miles south of where we lived.We went there for a couple summers straight.One summer we wanted to go to Camp Northwoods in Watersmeet,Michigan.I don’t recall what the trip cost back then,but it was considerable.We didn’t want to sell popcorn because every other scout troop was doing it.Your humble correspondent came up with an idea.

We went to Hoople’s Grain and Feed Store(it’s still there)and got stacks of empty feed sacks.Living on a dairy farm,I had an unlimited supply of fresh manure to sell for fertilizer.One kid’s dad was a graphic designer and he made us a big sign for our roadside stand.The sign read:BUY YOUR BS FROM THE BSA. We sold enough for every kid to go to the Northwoods.True story.
