I’ll soon be on a 5 and 1/2 hour train ride, fleeing #CPAC a day early.

I will be airing my grievances in a thread shortly.
I need to gather my thoughts, but let me start by saying that if the @BillKristol types would stop hyperventilating for 30 seconds, they’d realize their precious GOP establishment is still very much in tact.

That was evident at #CPAC.
First: It’s painfully evident what the GOPe’s strategy is.

The entirety of #CPAC was repackaging establishment conservatism under Trump’s “America First” brand.

Some White House goofball got up there and discussed how federal gov’t spending on vast swaths of military equipment is GREAT for the economy.

He called it “America First Defense.”
Feeding the Military Industrial Complex so we can spend trillions on foreign wars is neither puts America First nor bolsters the economy.

That’s George Bush conservatism.

It’s NOT why we elected Trump.
Second: The single biggest issue that Trump vowed to fix (immigration) was barely discussed.

GOPe is poo-pooing the issue and hoping we’ll accept tax cuts instead.

(Another throwback to the GWB days).

Immigration is the ONLY issue. If we can’t conserve our nation from foreign invaders, how do we even justify our existence?

Instead we talked a lot about “muh soshulism” while the Democrats are importing millions of voters who will vote for actual socialism.

Third: The blacklisting of movement figures like @AnnCoulter, @FaithGoldy, @NickJFuentes, Loomer, etc.

Anyone who actually cares about America was either banned or couldn’t get a media pass.

They were passed over in favor of the Glenn Beck’s of the world (lol)
Nothing says “America First” like Glenn Beck, who fought tooth-and-nail against Trump!

Meanwhile those little bitch reporters from the left-wing agit prop sites were welcomed with open arms.

Well played, @GOP!
In an effort to show how welcoming we are, Van Jones was a prime time speaker.

Van Jones blamed angry white people for Trump’s election. He hates us and wants us enslaved.

But hey, welcome to #CPAC, Van!
In my estimation, we’re about one #CPAC away from CAIR sponsoring a booth and hosting a breakout session.

In the name of “diversity,” of course.
#CPAC proved that either the @GOP is completely clueless, or it’s actively working against Trump voters in the interest of the GOPe.

It’s like a combination of both.

Once again, the DC class proves it doesn’t give a shit about ordinary Americans.
The bottom line is this:

The @GOP establishment is completely removed from actual conservatism.

And they’re actively fighting Trump and his allies.

For that reason, #CPAC was a complete disaster.
If you can do anything else besides attending #CPAC 2020 - backbreaking manual labor, have a limb amputated, call the cable company’s customer service line and sit on hold, whatever - do that.
That said, outside of the conference itself I met many interesting, intelligent people who understand the dynamic I’m describing.

That was mildly encouraging.

End rant.
