Subtle, but my back is killing me. Wouldn’t walk out w a cane. If you know me, you can tell my posture in the photos is strained, stiff. The things we do.

My job was to make “Mark, the person”, and Millie Hallow explained and presented the award… an original Founding Father’s document, ship transfer papers signed  by John Adams and James Monroe. Wow.

CPAC

Tweet:  finally here. Get here early for the magnetometers. Hot start w , , , Pence. Full schedule at .

Heck of CPAC this year. Disclaimer: I am on the Board of the American Conservative Union Fundation, hosts of CPAC. I sensed numbers where down, but don’t have verification. First time on stage, and twice. First time NFRA represented in The Hub. Hanging out with Carrie Lightfoot of The Well Armed Woman, saw Cruz, all the ACU/ACUF Board including Charlie Gerow, Alan Gottlieb. Panel w Carrie and Niger Innis, Graham Hill. Presented Defender of the Constitution Award w Millie Hallow to Mark Geist. Dinner first night w The Washington Times CEO Larry Beasley, former NRA President Jim Porter, and Sheriff David Clark walks by table… this is CPAC. Weather was considerably warmer than normal years but got ugly towards the weekend. Sweetheart joined me this year and good thing because of this whole muscle.nerve thing I had going on. Couldn’t walk upright, walked with a cane, couldn’t walk more than 50 feet at a time. Met Chris Loesch. Didn’t see a lot of friends but saw their posts. Sharon Ford ran the NFRA booth down stairs to good success, and fun. Ran into David Spady, Tom Fitton, Paul Teller, Katie Pavlich, Dick Miller, Emily Miller, Congressman Devin Nunes, friend former Hawaii guy Jeff Lohr, Mercy Schlapp, Ralph Hallow.

James Monfort post: Where can you network with thousands, listen to the top experts in American Values/Principles/Philosophy, and share ideas? Once a year The American Conservative Union holds such a conference! If you cannot attend, do take time and listen live! Vice President Pence will be speaking today, and President Donald J. Trump tomorrow! The Washington TimesWashington Examiner,Fox NewsHeritage Action for America,Americans for ProsperityLeadership InstituteAmerica First Policies,Americans for Constitutional Law and Rights, NRA Institute for Legislative Action, NRA – National Rifle Association of America 🙏🇺🇸

Tweet: Appreciate going live w national radio Chad Benson Show at 7:35p eastern to talk #2A. Chad wanted to talk about Parkland shooting, the NRA response, and what America should do.

At this same time, many businesses folded under pressure and began to boycott NRA.

We didn’t know that Judge Jeanne Pirro was going to talk all #2A, but I enjoyed it from my NRA hat. Same night, ACU Coms director made a comment about MSNBC commentator Michael Steele which Steele used to cry ‘racism’. That was a mess for a week.

Bama Carry Freedom Conference

Come to BamaCarry‘s 4th Annual Freedom Conference to meet the folks you’ve been hoping to meet. I am, with many friends attending & a great lineup of speakers, including me. Don’t need to be from AL, just need to be #2A. Don’t get here often so, please, let’s get introduced. Have four states to visit before getting to Sweet Home on Feb 10 so I’m prepping remarks now. What’d y’all want me to talk about? #merica #nocompromise #commonsense #selfdefense #noexcuse #ICarryMySafePlace #keepshooting#SecondAmendment @WillesLee #DefenderofFreedom #firearms #gunowners #freedom #gunrights #patriot#myflag #freedom #reciprocity #guns #CCW #lovevets Willes Lee NRA Board of Directors Eddie Fulmer

@americanairlines , you WERE doing fine. Out of DCA, probably easiest airlines to travel with firearms. Still, placed a ‘steal me’ tag on my checked luggage. The delay in Charlott was miserable. When sammwich cart comes out … say again how long is this delay? #whywehatetofly #amateurs#crewresttheysay #makeflyinggreatsgain #coulddrivefaster #AmericanAirlines #sucks

Hey. Which of you friends suggested I fly American?? @americanairlines repeatedly delayed this flight to Birmingham AL 7 times over 7 hours, always citing crew complications. Just now #AA tweets there were wx issues. Huh? Get your lies straight. Fortunately, crowd was a fun group. Suppose to land at 1pm, note the photo is NOT 1pm. Missed lunch w friends Paul & @joanreynolds. Dinner w my @BamaCarry friends. We haven’t taken off yet, might missed more. #AmericanAirlines sucked today. Hope they are better tomorrow. #dts

Today, Jasper AL. Outreach, Grassroots Dev, team work. BamaCarry.organnual conference. Just spoke, headed back to airport. Great people, great energy. Many friends, lots of new friends. Back held up, mostly, but it friggin hurts. Love being in Alabama, back to the beltway for CPAC 2018#CCW #2A #nocompromise 

This was good BamaCarry.org fun, great #merica. Y’all treat folks right. This is 2A-loving country. Wrapping a four state, five event, ten day trip (w a screaming back) & this made the work worth it. Wanna get these posted show our fun #SecondAmemdment friends. I’ll caption soon, gotta clean #CCW. Less than 24 hours in the ground thanks to a sucky American Airlines trip. Torrential, needed rain. Many friends, new friends, & FB friends. Need y’all to follow my NRA page, personal page is so much you don’t care about. Other speakers were great, must-hear sortof talks. Felt flat w aching back but folks were kind as Eddie Fulmer allowed me to borrow his stage for a couple min. Gonna share some real-photog pics later after some more sleep. Lots this week before our CPAC 2018 the next. #NRA #NRABoard#WillesLee #reciprocity #lovevets #gunrights #gunowners www.WillesLee.com #freedom #firearms #ShallNotBeInfringed Willes Lee NRA Board of Directors

Midnight landing, Saturday. Ten days, four states, five major events (several multi-Day)….. no flu but back and leg were a burning. A blessing.

Great American Outdoor Show. this was tough but not for reasons you’d think. Hosed some nerves in the back and leg so it was painful, as in very painful to stand and to walk. Then, a snow storm was approaching. Still, drove up, stopping, always, on the Gettysburg battlefield in the snow.

Where in the world is …. few days w Republican leaders individually representing their respective states & collectively representing GOP. RNC Winter Meeting in DC, January 2018. There are 168 members of the RNC, three from each state and territory.  They meet as a whole four times a year.  NRA has a team at each meeting to facilitate communications, and to keep squishys on track. This meeting included several #2A meetings & one presentation to bolster #shallnotbeinfringed.

Also, initiated work with RNC Strategic Initiatives to assist with and speak at state rallies in advance of the 2018 mid-term elections.

Days are full.  Fast day at Republican National Committee meeting in DC w meeting, lunch to discuss a major project partnership, meeting folks & presenting #2A at AAPI Conservative Leadership Caucus, big dinner. Start was with two powerful women at Conservative Steering Cmte breakfast as BFFs Marjorie Dannenfelser of Susan B. Anthony List interviews Kellyanne Conway, Counselor To The President. Wow. #MAGA #USA #myflag

President’s State of the Union (SOTU) address was the night before the RNC meeting began.  Conservative Steering Cmte (& guests) rented a room and TVs for a watch event at Republican National Committee winter meeting, Washington DC. This particular cmte is a conservative & pro-Trump group (Hint: not all #RNC members are invited to CSC). #MAGA #conservativesolutions #conservative

I was recently brought on as a member of this leadership team. Asian-American Pacific Islander group. Getting ready to present #2A at AAPI Conservative Leadership CaucusAAPI Conservative Leadership Caucus during Republican National Committee Winter meeting in DC, next to conservative leader BFF Steve Scheffler Iowa National Committeeman. This week is suits & ties, not next week at Great American Outdoor Show. Full presentation is below. My task was to show this group that there is room to grow Asian American Pacific Islander voters.
