    Michelle Malkin at CPAC: GOP Sold Out Movement Conservatives

    Michelle Malkin at CPAC: GOP Sold Out Movement Conservatives

    “Empty talking points need to be punctured like helium balloons.”

    Many speeches were given at CPAC this weekend, but one stood out from the rest.

    Conservative author, activist and entrepreneur Michelle Malkin gave a fiery speech in which she reminded movement conservatives that they have been repeatedly betrayed by the Republican Party.

    Malkin began her speech by saying:

    “It’s not people outside the party that have thrown the conservative grassroots base under the bus. It’s the people who have paid lip-service to limited government while gorging on it.”

    She was only getting started. In the course of her seventeen minute speech, she went after Republicans for the Gang of Eight, Common Core, cronyism, immigration and more.

    She slammed the party elites who smear and sneer at the conservative grassroots as fringe while pretending to support causes they care about at election time.

    When it came to Common Core she named names, singling out John Kasich for claiming he believed in local control of education. About Bush, she said:

    “There are three reasons why Jeb Bush failed. His last name, his support for amnesty and his cheer-leading and cashing in on Common Core.”

    This was the first time Malkin has spoken at CPAC in 13 years and it was well worth the wait. Once you start watching this, you won’t be able to stop.

    The folks at Communities Digital News agree:

    CPAC Friday: Cruz up, Carson out, Michelle Malkin on fire

    For all of the presidential politicking, the rock star of CPAC Friday was conservative columnist Michelle Malkin. She exploded like a neutron bomb, searing every Republican who has betrayed the conservative cause. She reminded the audience that attacking Democrats was not good enough. The wounds destroying the Republican Party are internal.

    She blasted former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for his support of Common Core. She lambasted Kasich for his compassionate conservatism, a term she despises. She went after Rubio ferociously for his work with the Gang of Eight on immigration. Malkin scorched the earth, relishing every minute of her time in the spotlight. The crowd roared agreement with almost all of her remarks.

    LES MOONVES EXPOSES THE TRUMP MEDIA GAME:

    Trump supporters who believe their candidate is the anti-establishment destroyer of media are being conned, and the con is being perpetrated by the people they hate the most — the Clintonistas of network media. Not only are these people generally hostile to conservatism. They also are not content to simply sit on the sidelines and objectively report what candidates say and do. Recall Dan Rather and Mary Mapes, who took it upon themselves in 2004 to run an unverified story about George W. Bush’s military service. In charge of CBS at the time? Les Moonves.

    Read the whole thing.

    None more so than Cruz’s interviewer, CBS’s Face the Nation host John Dickerson, who wrote a January 2013 Slate article published two days before Obama’s second inauguration headlined “Go for the Throat!” on “Why Obama Should Seek To Destroy the Republican Party.” Dickerson and Moonves are certainly eager to help any way they can.

    Makes you think. (HandyJoby is excused from this exercise for obvious reasons, and he has to find more garbage from the Left-0-sphere lie machine).

    Big fan of Malkin’s. Enjoyed her talk. And she’s hot, too.

    Still, everybody promoting books 24/7.

    What are these folks going to write about if we succeed in removing the chains of the libs and RINOS they decry?

    When Michelle cashes out her investments and announces an enclave community for limited government devotees, that will be a notable walk for all the talk. I’m sure she believes the things she says, but neither she, nor Levin, nor Breitbart could ever win an election in a toss-up district. Her strident polarizing serves her economic interests, but it doesn’t really help conservatives hold or unify a congressional majority, and it doesn’t help to win a general election. I am wondering if the better approach is to sit out and encourage the massive freight train of unlimited government to accelerate.
    .
    It seems the only way our self-absorbed electorate is going to understand the merit of limited government is by suffering under the opposite of it. It is ironic that the most educated electorate in history is so information overloaded that it can’t even recognize and learn from the decade of suffering by Venezuelans; an electorate who loved the notion of unlimited government given their seemingly unlimited oil resources. Maybe Michelle can start her enclave there. Limbaugh says that conservatism works everywhere it’s been tried, perhaps it’s time for him to walk the talk too.

    I personally love Michell Malkin and used to follow her religiously. However, like other TruCons, the more strident she got about solid conservatives over votes that I understood were a step, often the only step, in the right direction, I had to tune her and those like her out.

    It’s easy to claim and even defend ‘real conservatism’ from the echo chamber of conservative punditry. It’s a bit harder to move that dial when you not only have to watch your front, but your back.

    And, like when Jim DeMint said Harry Reid was a friend of his and “someone I could work with in the Senate” while denigrating Boehner completely during the difficult budget battle, Malkin’s battered wife excuses for Trump’s verbal assaults on her meant I had to drop her from my list of trusted sources on issues I care about.

    And, as I will always honor John McCain’s service while setting his political opinions aside, so will it be for any conservative Trump apologist, Malkin or anyone else. Including Presidential candidates.
