Nothing says rebel outsider quite like speaking at the annual gathering of conservative D.C. insiders that is CPAC, but that is exactly what conservative street artist Sabo did today when he spoke at one of the afternoon break-out sessions and stated that conservatives are today's rebels. Sabo bragged that he kicked Wendy Davis' "bigwig Hollywood donors right square in the nuts" with his infamous "Abortion Barbie" posters and then bravely called Gwyneth Paltrow "such a tool" because of her response to his "Obama Drone" pieces. For good measure,... MORE >

CPAC changed its format for speakers this year, and now they can elect to use part or all of their allotted time to answer questions. But if today’s questions are any indication, they shouldn’t have to worry about facing any hardballs. Ben Carson, the first speaker to have a Q&A session, fielded questions about how he will “make us feel more united and less divided” from a questioner who applauded his answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, faced a CPAC speaker’s dream question: “What is your biggest criticism of President Obama?” The questions didn... MORE >

After Sen. Ted Cruz’s speech at CPAC today, Sean Hannity came out to interview him, asking him such hardball questions as “Why does Ted Cruz love America?” Hannity also asked Cruz a series of rapid-fire questions, asking for the first word that came to the senator’s mind when he said a name. For Hillary Clinton, Cruz responded “Washington.” For Bill Clinton, he responded “youth outreach”…after Hannity did his best impression of Clinton hitting on a member of the audience.Hannity then asked for Cruz’s first impression of...

Sen. Ted Cruz told the CPAC audience today that he will be the one to “bring back the miracle that is America” by reassembling the “Reagan coalition" and uniting voters against universal health care, immigration reform, and net neutrality. Net neutrality, he claimed, undermines “freedom online” by giving Washington “power over the internet.” “How do we do that?” he asked. “We do that fundamentally by standing with the people and not with Washington. Washington wants Obamacare. The people want liberty. Washington wants amnesty.... MORE >

Today at CPAC, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke with conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham, who asked him hard-hitting questions such as one on how media commentators, a favorite target at CPAC, have “savaged” him. “How do you survive this onslaught day in and day out?” Ingraham asked. Christie responded that the “elite folks from the media” don’t like the fact that he decided to “take on a lot of these special interests frontally, that they support.” “They just want to kill you,” Christie said. “That’s...

Rep. Mia Love of Utah participated in a panel discussion at CPAC this morning on how the conservative movement can better engage young people, which is something for which Love thinks she is particularly well-suited because, as a black conservative, she refuses "to fit this mold that society says I need to fit into" ... just like Martin Luther King, Jr. Love said that she had recently been invited to speak to black students at the University of Chicago where someone told her that it "makes no sense" how she "can be a black, female from Utah, LDS, Republican, living in...

PFAW And Allies Call On GOP Presidential Candidates To Distance Themselves From CPAC’s White Nationalist Sponsor

Today, People For the American Way, America’s Voice and ColorOfChange.org called on GOP presidential candidates to distance themselves from Conservative Political Action Conference’s ties to ProEnglish, a group led by white nationalist Robert Vandervoort. As we reported last week, ProEnglish is sponsoring a booth in the event’s exhibit hall, which costs $4,000. ProEnglish has been allowed to sponsor the event for the past several years, despite Vandervoort’s well documented ties with white nationalist groups. Nearly every major Republican presidential contender is... MORE >
