” Stand And Fight “

posted by Leave a Comment

Jenny Beth Martin_CPACThis past weekend, Tea Party Patriots took up the torch for liberty at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Our number one goal was to have a big presence there and we believe we accomplished just that.

Tea Party Patriots activities at CPAC included live-streaming interviews and updates, several breakout sessions ranging in topics from Obamacare to campus Tea Party growth, an exhibit booth where people could come and find out who we are and what we stand for, a party for the huge college student demographic that was in attendance, and an electrifying speech from Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder and National Coordinator, Jenny Beth Martin.

Allen West at CPAC 2013 Speech: Deeds,not Words, Will Paint the Country Red

posted by Leave a Comment

west_cpac2013I suspect Allen West knows that a line like “Deeds, and not words, will paint this country red from California coast to the rocky shores” will be seized by liberals as some kind of bloody threat.  I doubt it bothers him much.

The former representative from Florida came to the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference to talk about the resurgence of conservatism in the wake of Barack Obama’s re-election.  ”I’ll give it to you straight,” said West.

At CPAC, Hunger for New Leadership

posted by Leave a Comment

rubioandpaulThe grass-roots activists that fuel the Republican Party’s gas tank appeared less divided during the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference than they did in flux as they try to determine which road to take next, and whom to follow.

With bitter 2012 election losses still on their minds, it might be easy to interpret the debates at CPAC as a movement — and, by extension, a political party — torn asunder. But the respectful tone that accompanied panels exploring immigration changes, candidate recruitment and the role of the U.S. in the world, and the equally raucous applause that greeted speeches by varied political figures such as Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., suggest otherwise.

“To My Grave I Will Owe Rand Paul A Debt Of Gratitude” Ted Cruz

posted by Leave a Comment

Ted-Cruz-CPACTed Cruz has been in the U.S. Senate just over two months, but he has clearly become one of the two or three elected leaders of the conservative movement today. Cruz’s speech was amazing. He strode out to deliver his speech and walked right past the lectern and the teleprompters and stood in front of them. He proceeded to speak clearly and forcefully without notes or a teleprompter for his entire speech.

It’s not that his speech was a rambling mess, as many speeches wind up being under the claim it was “extemporaneous.” No, his speech was well-organized and well delivered, but clearly from Cruz’s own heart and mind. That in itself sets Ted Cruz apart from many politicians today, who seem to read what someone else wrote for them.

CPAC_Palinbiggulp_pngFormer Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin just delivered a barnstorming speech here at the Conservative Political Action Conferenceicon1.png, proving once again that, despite being semi-retired and semi-irrelevant, the “Mama Grizzly” can work a crowd better than almost anyone else in the GOP.

Most would consider the following to be the 10 best lines of her speech:

Marco Rubio at CPAC: The “Idea” is Called “America”

posted by Leave a Comment

Marco_RubioMarco Rubio added some much needed refreshment to what had thus far been a very dry morning (with the exception of Allen West) at CPAC. His speech checked off many conservative boxes and sounded not-unlike a campaign speech. The audience seemed to approve of the young politician, offering applause and laughter as he mocked his own “Water-gate”. Here are some of the notable quotes from Rubio’s speech. You can view the complete speech here as well.

  •  I ran (for senate) because I believe this country is extraordinarily exceptional. 
  • Our widespread middle class separates us from the rest of the world.
  • Our principles still work.
  • There isn’t a tax increase in the world that can solve our debt problem.
  • Don’t underestimate the impact of the breakdown of the American family to our people.
  • Student loans are the next big financial bubble to burst.
  • We don’t need a new idea. There is an idea. The idea is called America. And it still works.

 U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL)
