If as has been widely suggested, CPAC 2013 marked a paradigm change, a generational change, a new direction of conservatism, it is possible to speculate that someone who fits the new paradigm could be president in 2016. Among them: Sen. Rand Paul of Ke...
Last we heard from members of the White Student Union at Towson University they were speaking up for disenfranchised white voters at CPAC. Well, now they're back, starting up nighttime campus patrols....
I know that we are pretty much past the point of covering what happened at CPAC this year. I'm not here to report about a speech that someone made, what happened on radio row, or even what CPAC 'means' for the GOP going forward. Sure,...Show More Summary
Politico: "He seems to have fallen entirely off the radar of early state Republicans. Democrats bring up his name with more zeal than do people in his own party. And his footprint at CPAC was so faint that his being an afterthought was itself an afterthought. What the heck has happened to Paul Ryan?"
At CPAC, I couldn’t help but notice that Sarah Palin was in phenomenal shape. She looked like she had spent the last six months doing nothing but jogging and Pilates. Well apparently, Sarah Palin does do something other than exercise...Show More Summary
CPAC, always showin' off the pride and joy of America. I was honored to attend such a sacred event. I had to make my accent less apparent because people are only used to the lame stream media Yankees askin' them questions.
At Breitbart News' "The Uninvited" Panel during CPAC last weekend, Rosemary Jenks, the director of government relations for Numbers USA, told the packed audience that Republicans have not thoroughly considered and discussed how giving...Show More Summary
Susie Sampson takes in the sights at CPAC 2013, that gathering of patriots!
On Saturday, Frank Gaffney, the Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy, told Breitbart's Uninvited panel at CPAC that the Obama administration's policy of unilateral de-nuclearization has "profoundly hurt our nation's national security. Show More Summary
Dorsey Shaw noted late yesterday that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has had a "horrible, no good, very bad week." It's true -- even by Bachmann's awful standards, the ignominious congresswoman has had it rough lately. Her CPAC speech was ridiculous, and left in tatters by fact- …
Famed anti-jihad activist Pamela Geller made a splash with her appearance at the special Breitbart breakout panel, “The Uninvited,” at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). In true Breitbart fashion, Breitbart News–itself a sponsor of the 2013 CPAC–held its own panel and stocked it with some of those voices that were systematically prevented from [...]
Rand Paul wins piece of straw, elected new king of Paulistan In a stunning development at CPAC that was shocking to everybody except those used to pre-determined inevitabilities, Rand Paul won a piece of straw. Upon receiving the sacred straw, his supporters immediately declared straw as worthless as the dollar. They spun the straw [...]
I had barely left the stage at CPAC when Republicans did the exact thing I told them not to do. Contrary to giddy liberals writing the obituary of the Republican Party, the nation has not swung left. Republicans just keep losing easy races through u...

Jim DeMint, R-SC, now the president of the Heritage Foundation, to the opening night dinner of the Conservative Political…
A lot of people seem to want Ben Carson, the pediatric neurosurgeon from Johns Hopkins, to run for president. Dr. Carson himself fed such speculation last week at CPAC. But it might be a good idea for Carson to get some legislative and...Show More Summary
In a clear case of the media’s double standard, CNN has been chasing around Congresswoman Michele Bachmann regarding her CPAC comments on the President’s lavish lifestyle. This, when the majority of her speech focused elsewhere: on Benghazi, the federal debt, medical innovations, and cyber attacks. And while CNN insists on piling it on, they bring [...]
Earlier this afternoon, I did a HuffPost live appearance. It was called, “Paul Legacy Continues: Rand Paul just won the CPAC straw poll and is being mentioned in the same breath as Rubio & Jeb Bush. Could he lead the GOP to victory with his libertarian ideology?” You can watch it all right here.
Jacob Heilbrunn Is President Obama getting too perky? That seems to be the latest charge directed at him from the right. Michele Bachmann, speaking at CPAC, thundered that Obama is living high off taxpayer money, complaining that he has five chefs on Air Force One and even a presidential dogwalker. Show More Summary
I like a occasionally rant. Came across a good one by Noemie Emery in the Washington Examiner: At CPAC last week we noticed Rick Perry saying the Republicans lost in 2012 because their nominee wasn’t conservative, which one must say was quite rich. And why was the nominee not a conservative? Perhaps because Perry failed. [...]
Editors' Note: In an effort to foster a more open and honest American dialog, Breitbart convened "The Uninvited" panel at CPAC 2013. This post is a part of a series continuing that dialog with the Breitbart News readers. Nina Shea, Director...Show More Summary
