BDS Leftists enraged by Cuomo's anti-BDS support for Israel (6-09-16)

 Ramadan 2016 : ISRAEL.(June 8) Murder by Jihad; Orlando (June 10), Mass Murder by Jihad; France (June 14) Murder by JIHAD.

"Ramadan-the Month of Jihad" when Jihadi's "Kill the Infidel".
Yet, the Jihadis remain a mystery to those who control the message. The media (the President) BLAME anyone or anything BUT NOT Islam. Islam, is the Religion of "Peace".
And then came RAMADAN 2016 (June 5th to July 5) On Wednesday, June 8, 2016 (the day before the "Shame on Cuomo" protest) Jihadis MURDERED innocent people sitting in a restaurant in Tel Aviv.  In celebration, Muslims shared candies, laughing, smiling, cheering for this 'successful' act of terrorism.

  • Hamas has praised the attack ...  Fireworks were set off in Gaza and Hebron in celebration of the attack.[48]
  • Some Palestinian citizens in East Jerusalem and Tulkarm started to celebrate the event by handing out candies ...  Jpost reported that Salma al-Jamal, a Palestinian news anchor working at Al-Jazeera TV, wrote on Twitter: "The Ramadan operation is the best answer to stories about 'peace process' that some people are trying in vain to revive."

On Thursday, June 9, 2016. The "Shame on Governor Cuomo" protest gathered outside the NY Governor's Manhattan office building.
Soc/Commie/Progs, many anti-Israel Jews, were angry.
Very angry that the Governor had signed an executive order against the BDS movement.

Jewish Voice for Peace, a social justice group that co-organized the protest, blasted Cuomo’s executive order as an unconstitutional “attempt to repress the growing movement for Palestinian rights.”

Gov. Cuomo proclaimed, “If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.” “I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement,” Cuomo tweeted on Sunday.

About the BDS bill: "Gov. Cuomo's executive order – the first of its kind signed by a governor – demands that a list of businesses supporting BDS directly or indirectly be drawn up over the next six months."

“In New York, we lead by example. We are also a place of action. We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we are on their side,” the governor said ...
[...] A wave of anti-BDS legislation has been introduced, and in some cases passed, in Congress and in state legislatures across the country, including South Carolina, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, Indiana, and Virginia."
“This order sends the message that this state will do everything in its power to end this hateful, intolerant campaign. New York and Israel share an unbreakable bond and I pray that the Israeli and Palestinian people will find a way to live side by side and find peace, prosperity, and security,” he said.

Next, videos and slideshows.  A look at the "Shame On Cuomo" protestors and the stalwart opposition.

A confident pro-Israel counter-protest,comprised of AFSI (Americans For A Safe Israel) and JCC Watch members, were a very vivid presence.

[Follow link to  a 4 page PDF handout from anti-BDS counter-protest," How Progressive are We When we are Supporting Or Promoting Hatred of Jews?"]

The "Thank You Gov Cuomo" counter-protest infiltrated the sidewalk maize of Lefties, their THANK YOU Governor signs held high over the crowd. 
They walked within the gridlocked Commie-circle of bodies that was thickest at the entrance to the office building (of course).

The Commies pretended to co-operate with the police who worked valiantly to keep them moving.

But, the well-rehearsed sidewalk blockage ("somehow") did not get loosened .... while the drum, drum, drummer kept on drumming along.

The counter-protest in support of Cuomo's anti-BDS executive order.

RAMADAN 2016 [June 5-July 5] there have (already) ... been Jihad murders... There will be many more .... as many Muslims [observing Ramadan] worldwide read the entire Qur’an ... [it is a FACT that]

Jihad groups routinely and unanimously couch their appeals and justifications in Qur’anic terms.

(proclaiming it to be) “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?

Brace yourself: there are (still) 16 days to go.

"nakba" 2016 - "palestine" - one long endless hoax

 Genocidal Chants and Lies commemorating the"nakba" fraud were blasted outside NY City Hall on Sunday, May 15, 2016.

The "nakba" is
the failed invasion of Israel by foreign Muslim armies, by Egyptian, Iraqi, Syrian and Jordanian forces, that began on May 15, 1948 and is now an annual "day of mourning" over the miserable defeat of their invading armies at the hands of the indigenous Jewish population.

That’s the "nakba" ... when the Muslim armies INVADED Israel...

[to] celebrate Islamic terrorism and discuss who was living in Israel first: These two topics are the beginning and end of any "Palestinian" identity. And both of them involve hating Jews.
"palestine" is one long endless fraud.

FACT: "palestine" is a parasitic political entity that derives its wealth... water... electricity from Israel and gets its history... culture... its entire reason for existing from Israel.

The only 'palestinian' culture is appropriation.

The LIES: An exhibit in March 2012, at the Metropolitan Museum, perpetuated the HOAX of a peaceful Islamic Cultural expansion. FACT: Islamic culture is genocidal appropriation comprised of "historical" LIES and Fraud.

"... as the Muslim Invasion continues, their version of history goes unchallenged in this visible and invisible world of the 21st c. "

"Islamic Art Bridges The World at the Metropolitan Museum"


The Muslim INVADERS claim that King David was a Muslim, that Jesus was a "palestinian" and that the Star of David, which long predated Islam, is an Islamic symbol.

150 years ago, Mark Twain visited Muslim-occupied Israel
and wrote of “unpeopled deserts” and “mounds of barrenness,” of “forlorn” and “untenanted” cities.

Palestine is “desolate,” he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.”

The same is true of the "palestinian" Museum which opened in 2016 with much fanfare and one slight problem: while admission is free, there’s nothing inside for any of the visitors to see except the bare walls.


is a political Potemkin village.
There’s a flag, an anthem, a museum and all the trappings of a country but, if you look closer, there’s nothing inside.

"palestinian" identity has no meaning or context without hating Jews.
It IS ABOUT ISLAM's HATRED of all things NON-Muslim BUT in particular all things JEWISH.

'palestine' has no past ... no future.
When the Muslim Invaders take over countries. cities. villages. churches. cathedrals. synagogues. temples. All must  accept Islam, SUBMIT or Die.

They ERASE all evidence of any history before Islam. Perpetuating the LIE that ISLAM is not the problem. The JEWS are. Israel IS.


The INDIGENOUS peoples of the Holy Land are THE  JEWS. Which is WHY a museum a few miles outside the capital of the "palestinian" Authority... find(s) (no)thing “palestinian” to exhibit in what it claims is historic ("palestinian") land.... The bare walls testify that... there is no palestinian culture. There is no palestinian history. 

 VIDEO 1 - THE TRUTH denied as anti-Israel Genocidal Chants and Lies assault all who pass-by.


The chants: Hudna, Hudna don't you cry, "Fakestine" will never die" - We Want 48, We don't want a Two State - We don't wanta a Two- State, We want 48! - "When People are Occupied, Resistance is Justified "(followed by the ubiquitous chants) "The People United will Never be Defeated" and "Free Free "Fakestine", "Long Live "Fakestine".

A male speaker:
"When we say we want to return, it's not just a slogan. We don't play any games. We are genuine about our cause and about our beliefs. Make no mistake, when we said we want "Fakestine' to be free, we MEAN just that : "From the River to the Sea! "Fakestine" will be Free." Let the whole world hear you. let the politicians , the Zionists walking around taking picture (I think he means ME)... the Mossad. We have no doubt that ONE DAY, no matter how long it takes, we will return to our beloved "ancestral-homeland" "Fakestine" . LONG LIVE "FAKESTINE". It's not over til we get our LAND back. Never Forget. Never FORGIVE. We WILL Return! Free Free "Fakestine"

 VIDEO 2 - "nakba" lies outside NY City Hall joined by Communist radicals warn that "violence is necessary".  Laura Whitehorn & Lamis Deek - Whitehorn  spent 14 years in Federal Prison. Deek is an attorney who never met a radical she didn't want to represent.  Both in New York's CITY HALL Park demanding the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State of Apartheid - in the Middle East- those "BASTIONS of equality!

[00:00 to 00:48] Excerpt from Communist Radical [aka "political" prisoner] LAURA WHITEHORN was charged with “conspiracy to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government by violent and illegal means". 
She received a sentence of twenty years - released after 14. In the 60s, Whitehorn was active in the "civil rights" movement, supported the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Movement and the New Afrikan Independence Movement, Puerto Rican Independence and the liberation of women, gays and lesbians. Whitehorn also lists fighting the KKK and organized white supremacy ...

 YET she was in CITY HALL park demanding the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State of apartheid - in the Middle East- those "BASTIONS of Equality!"  WHITEHORN insists that "the delegation Jews are anti-Zionist Jews .This has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. It is an national Liberation Movement."[00:49 to 3:56] Second female speaker most likely, Jihadi Attorney at Law- LAMIS DEEK. "Fakestinians" do not accord legitimacy to Israel. Israel is called the 48. BRING that message HERE. Stop saying Israel! Israel is "48". Israel's BANNED from the Land of "Fakestinians". we must FREE "Fakestine"

A "Two-State Solution" is ABSOLUTELY NO Solution. We fought apartheid. We fought racism. we fought genocide in "Fakestine" and it is our responsibility here in the U.S. to make sure that this does not continue to happen. The U.S. as we all know funds Israel to the tune of 4-5 BILLION dollars. That means in the U.S. our hands are filled with blood. We need to take a stand against it. We need to be in the streets. And we need to LINK the Black Liberation Movement AND the Liberation Movement of OPPRESSED people IN the United States - Native Americans, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans.... fight to 'free Fakestine" . We stand here in solidarity. Every year. The crowd cheered as Lamis gave encouragement and support for violence as a necessary act of resistance (when necessary)

 Re Political Prisoners: Whitehorn and Deek waxed on and on about violent felons [also "political" prisoners"] claiming they were imprisoned wrongfully. Bombs - they're just another form of litter...perhaps... Lamis seems to think so.... As she mentions that Whitehorn spent 14 years in prison (in part) because she BOMBED the headquarters of the Israeli Aircraft Industry right here in NYC. (the crowd CHEERS). "Part of what we need to understand, people who's Nations have been under 'attack" have THE RIGHT- by any means necessary to DEFEND their homeland "(the crowd goes wild with CHEERS again) "In the United States- Black Political Prisoners. White Political Prisoners. Chicanos. Native Americans. We say FREEDOM to "Fakestine". We won't stop until Freedom until "Fakestine" is Free."

 Outside NY City Hall Park- Patriot Jim defended Israel by exposing the LIES about "Fakestine".
At one point he was joined by a British fellow passing by who also challenged the "Fakestinan" LIES. This man, as well as Patriot Jim, were a huge source of irritation for the Commies and Muslims .

VIDEO 3 - "What a SUCCESS story you guys are. yeah yeah Liberal States have been great for Gays...good for gays, good for women...what a're all so confused...44 Arab States, not enough: Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq- another one and then another one- you're a BASTION of equality; a bastion of democracy."(Responding to a Muslim female) "Every Arab country's apartheid. How about women's rights, gay're an f-ing moron. How about women's rights?"


(The Muslima responds) "They're Great" (followed by a non sequitur) "A 100,000 'palestinians' died." (The Brit responds as cops make him leave ), "You're not a Liberal, you're a MORON". Move along-mustn't upset the Muslim protestors chanting over and over for "One solution- Intifada- Revolution". Translated: "Death to the Jews. ERASE "the 48, aka Israel" from the history books.

The TRUTH: "There is no such thing as a "palestinian" people, no such thing as a "palestinian" history and no "palestinian" language exists. There has never been any independent, sovereign "palestinian" state in all of recorded history."

City Hall Park- NYC-  Muslims. Communists. Black Panther Racists join the media (our schools) our educated fools to preach the "Fakestinian" narrative: "Muslims Good. Zionists (Jews) BAD."
The "Fakestinian" Hoax. The Fraud is dedicated to the destruction of  "the 48" (Israel) and teh LIE that the  Zionists have NO right to live on "MUSLIM" land (ISRAEL)

My slideshow pics


IN CONCLUSION. The agit-prop on the Fakestinian Facebook page :
"On the 68th anniversary of the "occupation" of palestine ... as the palestinian people enter the 68th year of "dispossession" and "exile", we call on all... supporters of "justice" and "liberation" to come together to... commemorate the "nakba", stand against the "continuing" nakba... to call for the "right of return" for palestinian "refugees" and freedom for palestine.

... The war of 1948 ...  over 800,000 palestinians driven from their homes... the State of Israel created on that land ...the"struggle" for their "right to return".... continues today."

The speakers included representatives of New York City Students for Justice in Palestine, Al-Awda NY, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, American Muslims for Palestine, International Action Center, Existence is Resistance, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return, Muslim American Society, BAYAN USA and other groups struggling for "Justice" in "Fakestine" and internationally.

"We don’t want two states – we want 48!” Lamis Deek (Jihadi attorney)

w-nerdeen-kiswani-102514-1425566723 Nerdeen Kiswani of New York City Students for Justice in palestine wrote that the rally was full of palestinian youth, which gave me an intense feeling of hope and optimism, that the next generation does not forget their history, their roots, and the right of return. They cheered loudly whenever someone proclaimed that refugees languishing in camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, don’t want to just go to the West Bank and Gaza, they’re entitled to go back to the homes they were expelled from. Back to Yaffa, back to Haifa, back to Akka. Although so many here today were people born and raised in Brooklyn, because their grandparents were displaced from palestine, they know where their roots lie and that the right of return is not just symbolic but a key aspect of the palestinian struggle.”

In Parting : There has never been any independent, sovereign "palestinian" State in all of recorded history. The "palestinian" people do not exist.

The Truth does not change
. Truth is truth
. If something was true 50 years ago, 40 years ago, 30 years ago, it is still true today. And the truth is there was very little confusion on this issue of "palestine"...

FACT: “There is no such thing as a palestinian people.” (the late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir)

A Look back at CPAC 2016 - Washington, DC- vids & pics

Looking Forward: Republican State Primary decisions are nudging Trump to take the Republican nomination. (If un-contested)

                 The Ohio Convention looms.

Looking Back : The NY Primary ended with mounds of Democrat complaints of illegal machinations from the New York Board of Elections (run by the hardcore left). The “Independents” got snowed. Snuffed. Stripped of their votes by a complicated system with so much small print that to re-register as “Democrats” threw them in the UN-registered pile. Many, also missed the deadline (due to that small  print). October 19 was the cutoff for the April Primary registrations.

Reports of broken machines, missing machines, polling locations locked or – also, missing- come not from a few but thousands (particularly in Bernie-Land – aka Brooklyn).
john_cole_exit_poll_cartoon Many unhappy Dems, who are rooting for ol’ Bern, hope that the Hillary/Sanders race remains undecided, a portent of the voting ills that will surely plague America. If it looks like “Hilda” is in jeopardy of sweeping the White House. Look out.

Now a personal review of  CPAC 2016
. [My original report was delayed by post-CPAC Primaries and Commie Protests]HOPE filled the air at CPAC 2016. 
In spite of the MSM's desire to say otherwise, on March 3,4,5, 2016, the millennials, our future, gathered. Three jam-packed days Maryland's Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
Lots to do and so little time.  CPAC, the place to be for those of a Conservative mind-set, to vet potential Presidential candidates, to discuss their policy positions as well as the G.O.P.'s; to illuminate not obfuscate as many candidates lobbied to be the next POTUS.

Lets begin: Thursday, March 3 - Day One.  The Potomac Ball Room.
For the press, this day made working seem so easy. Finding a spot to film. Write. Take pics. Slipping in and out of the ballroom press area. No complications.  Except, this year - we were NOT  able to go 'on-the floor' for close-ups of the speakers and panels - except in groups of 10 and then ... back to the press-area ...

. The day began at 9:10 AM with Gov. Scott Walker (WI)
Some of Walker’s comments: ” … the growth of Conservatism state by state, governor by governor. Since 2009 there have been almost 1000 new Republicans elected to office across the country.”

r spoke of the economic and fiscal crisis that Wisconsin faced. Education reform. Labor. Unemployment. Right to Work.

“We got GOVERNMENT out of the way. We helped grow the economy.  ‘Good Policy is Good Politics’. We’re making a difference. Our ideas work, when given the chance, even in Blue States. They believe in the Government. WE believe in the Individual. We have a positive plan to take back our states, our community, our country.” 
Followed by Moderator  KT McFarland’s Panel: “Greatest National Security Challenge” with Dr. James Carafano, Deneen Borelli, Rep. Ryan Zinke.

Some comments:Reagan rebuilt shattered military. Carter gave us Reagan. What will Obama give us. The greatest military that this current POTUS can’t disassemble fast enough. KT: 1980. Regan and Make America Great. Our Time is now. . Peace only through strength. Troops ability to win requires Troops on the ground (Syria) . We have 800,000 employees in DOD . get the government out of the way.”

Unfortunately, the press area was so far back in the Potomac Ballroom that filming or taking pictures required a mightier zoom than I had (and both of my cameras have good zoom capability) just not mighty enough for this location. Going ‘on-the-floor’ was helpful but, restricted enough to be complicated. 
Since the press platform for the video-cams was too bouncy for my mono-pod set-up, I left (with my gear) for about an hour to check out the Exhibit Hub. 
[More pictures of the Exhibits in Part 1 Flickr – link at bottom of post]

Then back to the press area: Though busier, not too difficult to set-up at a press table this time. (Much happier at the tables) 
Continuing in the ballroom 1 PM – Wayne La Pierre (National Rifle Association) Some Comments:2nd Amendment guarantees all our freedoms.”
“Scalia was a monumental jurist. Mourn him. Miss him. Next President. 3 appointments to Supreme Court. (HRClinton can’t pass a polygraph) Game Over. Americans are fed up. Disgusted. Enraged. Outraged. Gun Laws exist. White House doesn’t enforce these laws. They Blame the NRA”

Panel on “Reforming the Criminal Justice System” (excerpts) Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. (WI) a Democrat-was the star of this panel. Clarke impressed with no-nonsense answers to the questions presented by Moderator, Kelly Riddell.

He was joined by Att. Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (VA), Sen. Mike Lee (UT), Pat Nolan (ACU) “Discussion focused on prisons. Recidivists. Costs of crime. Deeply ingrained behaviors difficult to undo. Punishment is the deterrent to crime.”

  Panel on “Fighting For Victory Against “Radical” Islamism” (Excerpts) Ayaan Hirsi Ali (AHA Foundation) was the star of this panel.

 Moderator: Van Hipp [American Defense International] with Jim Hanson [Center For Security Policy] and Rep. Steve King [IA-4] Ayaan begins speaking at [9:51 to 14:50] She continues (audio only with stills) [19:17 to 21:31] and [26:55 to 30:21] Video returns at 32:11
Comments: “We the people vs the Medina Agenda. In Medina, Religious Philosophy is the antithesis of America. these are the Jihadis. Freedom loving American is not Islamophobic.  Islam is not a Religion of Peace. You must call a spade a spade. Speak up. Speak Out. “King” Obama is partnering with our enemies: CAIR. ISNA. World is more dangerous now than 2001 (9-11)”

Left the ball room for Thursday’s afternoon break-out sessions on Islam and Jihad. Looking for solutions – the TRUTH- in a weary world.
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser’s
presentation (with slides): “Political Islam: How Patriotic American Muslims Defy Radical Islamists”

After Jasser’s presentation, the next breakout was to be Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s “ We are all  Infidels Now” – in the same room- convenient [so we thought] But, the room was switched (with no notice) and confusion followed as to where she was moved.
Ayaan’s Infidel breakout “We are all  Infidels Now“ was replaced by Socialism. Wanting to stay on-topic, I headed to the Frank Gaffney Center For Security break-out panel (a four hour event on Global Jihad – it was half-over) A prudent decision – Ayaan did not do her Infidel break-out (no idea why).

“The Global Jihad Movement in America & the Counter Jihad Campaign
” . Moderator: Frank Gaffney . Panel : Paul Weston, Lars Hedegaard, Jim Hanson. It was a two panel discussions on the growing threat of the “Global Jihad Movement”. I missed the first panel, Caught some of the Q and A.

There were 5 Questions I was present for.
Q # 1 is at the very beginning of recording, answered (00:17) by Hanson and Gaffney.
Q #2 (1:36) answered by all 4 panelists (2:24-7:38) [Gaffney, Lars H., Weston, Hanson and again, Gaffney]
Q #3 (7:40 was a long winded fellow. finally a question at 9:07) #3 answered (9:38 to 13:59-Gaffney) 13:40 Hanson, then Weston (14:57-Gaffney again)
Q #4 (16:56) #4 answer (17:49) Hanson (19:48) Gaffney
Last Question #5 (21:29) #5 answer (22:28) Hanson.
Thank you’s (23:33)

Thursday, Day One,  had much to offer and the crowds, though full, were manageable.  Sorry I had to miss the Socialism and Castro breakouts but, choices had to be made. My priority: To catch anything on Islam and Jihad.

Before I leave Thursday- CPAC 2016, an unfortunate misstep from CPAC:  Pamela Geller’s Panel on National Security was denied.

“Back in October, I contacted Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, which puts on CPAC. I informed him that my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), wanted to be a full-fledged sponsor of CPAC, so that I could host an event, “How Liberal Ideology Is Crippling National Security Capability.” Being a CPAC sponsor is not some honor that CPAC organizers confer; any conservative group can buy sponsor status.

Thinking our money was as good as anyone else’s, we invited the internationally renowned Dutch freedom fighter Geert Wilders, who just won the “Politician of the Year” award in The Netherlands. We also invited British politician Paul Weston of LibertyGB, who was arrested for quoting Winston Churchill’s words about Islam; Swiss freedom fighter Oskar Freysinger; Israeli political analyst Caroline Glick; and DHS whistleblower, Philip Haney.

I followed up for months while they “studied the issue.” They were concerned about security because of the death threats I have received since my free speech conference in Garland, Texas last May was attacked by Jihadis. I assured them that my entire security apparatus, a seasoned team of the top professionals in their field, would be in place (at our expense, not CPAC’s), and that several of my speakers who are European politicians would also be coming with their own secret service protection. This should have been adequate.

CPAC doesn’t deserve the name “Conservative.” It should be called the “Cowards Political Action Conference.” Pamela Geller

For CPAC 2016, with so many Presidential candidates, SECURITY was beyond intense. What seems more probable: Censorship

DAY Two, March 4, Friday: Not an easy day for everyone due to insane SECURITY.

The LINE for General Admission was very, very long. Snaking back and forth. I’ve never seen the CPAC lines like this. Friday attendance was HUGE with serious security that included scanning and dog sniffers. It was very, VERY slow.
 Even the press was scanned and sniffed (on a shorter line).  The Security Teams were committed to getting the press in side without too much delay. Still, packed gear had to be opened and jostled to make sure we were really carrying camera gear, etc. IF ONLY the Gen. Admission lines had sped through in similar fashion …. so that speakers and panels had more audience…. Many people gave up, after hours on line, and went to their rooms to watch the speakers.

 Day Two, once in the press area,was a much more intense challenge. Finding that perfect table-spot for cameras, computers etc.- not so easy. Once set-up no one was going anywhere. Forget the break-out panels. However, 3- 4 hours later, it was time for a bathroom break. But, EVEN THE PRESS had to be re-scanned and sniffed- no matter our gear was inside – step out of the room – get re-scanned.

Fortunately, many of the speakers and panels were worth the tsuris  … Hot topics, major speakers and a bit of controversy as some questioned the Conservative credentials of not just the candidates but, also, CPAC. Malkin and J.B. Martin, in particular, were on fire.

[Some of the speakers are in our video playlist at end of article, as well as the Flickr slideshows]
Michelle Malkin, Conservative blogger, political commentator, author.


Comments from Malkin’s speech. “My job is to tell you want you need to her not what you want to hear.  Kasich preceded her. She was critical of him and his support of Common Core. Empty talking points. She came down hard on Common Core and the betrayal of the Governors. Follow the money. Speaking to the politicians: Do the job we demand Don’t stab us in the back. We NEED Ted Cruz. Too often Conservatives hold your nose and vote. Republican brokers. Political sabotage. Two reasons Jeb Bush failed-Common Core and Amnesty”
Beth Martin-co-founder the Tea Party Patriots. Comments: “7 yrs ago the Modern Tea Party was born. Tea Party is NOT dead. Candidates need to appeal to Tea Party. She states that TRUMP is NOT Tea Party. Must love Country. Constitution above own interests. She ends with SUPPORT Ted Cruz.

Rumors spread quickl
y that Donald TRUMP had cancelled CPAC. I don’t think anyone in the press-area was surprised, particularly after these two bold speakers. Trump was not the favored candidate at CPAC, making Ted Cruz the likely winner of the Straw Poll (and he was).

Other "Day Two" Speakers and Panels (impossible to catch everything)

Reince Priebus - Chairman of Republican National Committee  with Sean Hannity. Main selling point: "Republican Party will support no matter who is the candidate. We have a long way to go. States Rights. People will not want Congress deciding. Some may want chaos."

Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), Candidate for President. Cruz was introduced by ACU Board member, Carolyn Meadows.(The crowd was standing for quite awhile. making the camera hand held and a bit bouncy til they all sat down) He begins speaking at 1:57.

"So Donald Trump is skipping CPAC. Maybe someone told him there were Conservatives and Libertarians- and young people who were going to be here."As Cruz spoke (at 3:37) a gaggle of Trump supporters filed out in protest. But, this did not diminish the fact that Cruz was enormously popular with the CPAC crowd. (He won the Straw Poll).

“If I am elected President, we will repeal every word of ObamaCare. To keep government from getting between us and our doctors.We will abolish the IRS. Passing a Flat Tax. Politicians in both parties have lied. Along with millions of Americans, NO we will not have amnesty. Secure Our Borders.” Re the passing of Justice Scalia, “He was a Lion of the Law. We are one Liberal Justice away from the Supreme Court ERASING the Second Amendment (and other rights) I will not compromise away your rights. We have a weakened military. We will REBUILD the military. No longer will the military be governed by Political Correctness. We will defeat Islamic Terrorism. Kill the enemy and then get the heck OUT. The long lasting legacy of Barack Obama (like Jimmy Carter gave us Reagan) is gonna be a new generation of leaders in the Republican Party who stand for Life and Liberty… the Constitution…”. [Part 2 was the Q and A with Sean Hannity]

Gov. John Kasich (OH), Candidate for President-At first Kasich reminisces about past CPAC’s and his early political career. 

“1982 when he first ran for Congress as a Conservative. Reagan. The Kasich Budget. Fiscal responsibility. He fought the Establishment. Building a Team. 1993. Clinton’s budget for higher taxes. Balancing the Federal Budget. We swept to victory.1994 with a Conservative agenda. The American economy was booming. Then I stepped out of politics. Ohio was in trouble. He went back. Governor. Ohio recovered.He addresses some specifics re what was done in Ohio. He ran for re-election. (He did a Mr. Roger’s “You are Special” moment) as he spoke to the Millennials and the future of the Republic. in q and A with Hannity they discussed a possible brokered convention.”

Dr. Ben Carson  (beloved neurosurgeon) Candidate for President. The crowd adored him. But as he announced he was dropping out of the race for President, he said poignantly, “I know, you love me…but you won’t vote for me”

Comments from Dr. Carson: "What is happening to our Nation. The Government does not understand what compassion is. (instead) making people dependent...we need to identify those in our society who are trying to splinter us. (We in the government are going to eliminate poverty- the Johnson Admin) .... (government) has made it's much worse. Hillary. Alinsky. book dedicated to Lucifer.Obama has said we are not a Judeo-Christian Nation. He doesn't get to decide. WE get to decide. Equality of OPPORTUNITY. The press is the only business specifically protected by the Constitution. BECAUSE, THEY were supposed to be the allies of The People. Not take sides. The press - young members in particular, should remember - If the Country goes over the cliff- you're gong over, too. Be FAIR. I sit back and relax knowing that the Next Generation is in trouble."

Matt Schlapp – Chairman of American Conservative Union -Excerpted

“These have been the hard and difficult years that Reagan predicted. But, the Conservative movement is growing stronger. We’re adding voices. We’re are PREPARED for the OBAMA EXIT….We’re at a critical moment for Conservatives.Don’t fear this moment (in history). Embrace it. Like all challenges. We’ll be stronger when we get through it.”

  Panel ” Who’s Voting and Who’s Not” Moderator – Matt Schlapp, Panel  included Fred BarnesPolitical Commentator, Charlie Hurt (Wash Times), Brittany Kaiser, Kellyanne Conway.
 Comments:”Much Ted Cruz support. A Third party will hand election to Hillary. [NOTE: Ballroom was too empty because of the easily 1000 who were trapped on security line. Too slow.]Barnes says that Trump has alienated  too many. Tea Party claims Trump is for Trump. Cruz is most Conservative candidate since Reagan. Cruz needs our help to win against HRC.

Sen. Jim DeMint  (SC) – Comments: To the Republican Party, “Wake up to Conservative Principles”. Time for a Conservative Take over. We must de-fund Obama Care. Republicans with Conservative ideas WIN. Reduce the size of the Fed. Favoritism for None. Opportunities for All. . Make America Strong. Reclaim America.

 The VERY popular Dana Perino – Former White House Press Secretary, Political Commentator & author Moderated a panel: “How Conservative Principles Meet Millennial Goals“. Others on the panelRob Bluey, Benny Johnson, Katie Pavlich.
Comments: “Millennials are less patriotic. Only 38% think America is greatest country in the world. When they see how much government takes from their paychecks…they discuss abortion and technology. Important  to see ultra sounds. The baby.

Comments: “Cornerstone of Liberty: Property rights vs. Government. Property rights sacred. Government cannot take what is rightfully earned.  Wealth Redistribution vs Taxation. Does our government steal. Intellectual Property. Owners should have a say on how used. Patents/Wright Brothers-Competitor should not be able to use your property. Patent critical to retain/protect innovation. Need strong Intellectual protection. Important for economic growth. Companies without patent innovation grind to a halt. We will not be able to get cheaper drugs through technological innovation. Honor ALL property rights. Soviet example of socialist abuses re property/intellectual rights.”

Her remarks were accompanied by slides (see flickr side show) . A real winner in my eye. Great presentation. “Populism – Manipulates people.You are too poor,too stupid. The Populist Handbook. It starts with Hate Speech. Divide with Hate. No individuality. We are SICK of government.

She is of Guatemalan, Cuban and Hungarian descent and has toured throughout Latin America denouncing populism in the region.

Day Three, Saturday March 5: . With a tepid welcome on the horizon, Trump skipped out on his scheduled appearance.  Since Trump was a no show Day 3 was void of the Day 2 SECURITY Juggernaut. I could now catch two Breakout panels I would probably have missed with clear paths and wide open walkways.

 Media Row (outside the ballroom) was practically empty. Days 1 and 2 (March 3 & 4) it had been alive with non stop on-camera and radio interviews.
Friday was packed.

Saturday’s Media Row was very QUIET. Many had packed-up leaving ghost-crews (if any)

Before I left D.C., covered two Saturday AM break out panels

 Panel One: “Affecting Popular Culture: Do Conservatives have a Role”. Moderator-Ian Walters, Becky Cusey, Stacey Dash, Cameron Goodman
The audience seemed attentive and asked questions.  But, I struggled to get involved with this topic. Perhaps it was just me.

Panel Two: “Europe in Chaos”. Moderator, KT McFarland, focused on the the crisis and chaos in Europe. The panelists: Dr. Nile Gardiner (director the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom), Ben Collins (a former Green Beret) and Dr. Zuhdi Jasser (Pres. American Islamic Forum for Democracy) Part 2 is the Q and A.. First was a statement made Janice Atkinson, a UK Member of the European Parliament.

In Part 2 video (at 4:10) the panelists took 6 questions from the audience.  Q #1 : 4:32 (answered by Dr. Gardiner @….. )
Q#2 – 6:50 (answered by Dr. Gardiner @ 8:06) Q#3 -10:07 (answered by Dr. Jasser @ 10:49) Q#4 – 13:45 (answered by Ben Collins @14:41)
Q#5 -17:49 ( answered by Dr. Gardiner @ 18:45) and Q #6 – 20:12
( answered by …..)

Leaving Panel Two, I saw Grover Norquist standing to the side of the Media Row area talking to a small group of 5 or 6 people. Chatting and answering questions. Unfortunately, I had a train to catch. Had to keep moving.

Saturday’s main speakers  were Marco Rubio and Glenn Beck.  But, we made a decision to leave earlier than planned, missing their CPAC speeches.  Check-out time at the Gaylord is 11 am (WAY too early since CPAC goes to 5-6 PM) With baggage and gear, this makes work a problem. Having tried the baggage check area for my extra STUFF in previous years, I knew to avoid that option. Baggage check was overwhelmed. Confused (a serious mess actually) Finding my checked bags was almost impossible.  So, to avoid the hassle, I caught two early morning panels and then hopped the Acela back to Manhattan.

In conclusion: CPAC 2016.  Glad I went. Sorry for the 1000 or so attendees for whom Day 2 was a disappointment. Missing so many speakers and panels due to the security.

On the plus side: All three days. Jammed. Energized. Focused on the election of the 21st century. The three day conclave of Conservatives was worth the trip. No matter who the candidate. Not futile. CPAC was determined to reclaim Reagan’s America.

Addendum- CPAC 2016, two months passed, whatever was preached, lectured, cheered and debated, seems endangered by belligerent in-house fights that grow with each primary, particularly as the nomination swings towards Trump.
In-fighting. Conservatives vs Repubs. Conservatives vs the Lib-Soc-Commie Machine. Conservatives vs Libertarians. The Final Battles that lie ahead may lose us big to the Communist Cabal. (Bernie or Hilda) without a candidate to stand up the Democrat Machine.

The post-apocalyptic, Cloward-Pivens-Alinsky-Marxed America (via Obama-Hillary-Sanders) has snowed many fools and tools putting the White House within the Hildebeast's grasp.What happens in November can make or break this country.

We need a Candidate who will do as promised. A Man of his Word. Is Trump that man? If not. Than Who?

 Times: they are hard, sir...
