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!

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.
