CPAC 2024 Revealed a Much-changed World

Undoubtably, you’ve heard sound bites of standout moments from CPAC 2024, held at Gaylord National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

I woke up at 3:30 a.m. to get ready and travel there from Baltimore by train. Incidentally, I learned the hard way at 11 p.m., that there are absolutely no trains running at that time until 5:25 a.m.. “Amtrak Joe” and Secretary of Transportation Pete “Who, me?” Buttigieg have clearly abandoned critical infrastructure in the capital of the most powerful nation on Earth.

The conference’s theme was “Where Globalism Goes to Die.” There were international panels and world leaders who came to champion populist thinking.

It was a very different mood than in 2023. Though, of course, there was cheering for the exciting speakers, the idee fixe throughout was neither panic nor giddiness, but more of thoughtful, steely determination.

Thousands of people present are taking action to support the re-election of President Trump and our traditional American way of life.

After all, this election is not an issue of picking a team to cheer, like a second Super Bowl. There are many contentious issues plaguing this country. CPAC hosted top leaders of the U.S. and around the world to speak to their areas of interest and expertise.

Former Acting Attorney General Matt Whittaker moderated a panel exploring states’ agendas and what progress they are making. Topics that emerged included firearms, school security and the “licentiousness” of the culture today.

The biggest TV advertiser, Mike Lindell, updated the audience with what he’s been working on. He described the resistance he faces, as to his own ideas, in many states. He believes that reforms must be implemented in voting going forward.

In a presentation by Stephen Moore and former Congressman Doug Collins, “Bidenomics: Bad for America’s Health,” they detailed insidious ways Democrats are chipping away at our ability to be a powerhouse.

Certainly, being asleep as to the CCP stealing American intellectual property is stymying innovation. They also took a dim view of Joe Biden “going against” Elon Musk.

Decades-long independent voice Lou Dobbs noted that in the current mainstream media climate of being “Politically correct, irrespective of the television network,” he strongly feels that we are in a “police surveillance state.”

Popular current candidate for the U.S. Senate from Arizona, Kari Lake, after reiterating many of her campaign themes, did have a very different point, I noticed. She strongly feels conservatives need to “open the tent to independents and disaffected Democrats.”

On the surface, this goes against the grain of people disgusted with Nikki Haley fishing for hate-filled liberal votes in open primaries, trying to push President Trump off her Stairway to Heaven of political ambition. It’s actually the opposite. The concept now is to convince these not-very-polarized voters to check out the merits of President Trump.

Going from someone we all knew had tremendous influence on politics behind the scenes, to an absolute rockstar power force in his own right — underestimate 2016 Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon at your peril.

Certainly, populist political and financial leaders across the world seek his views. But what’s changed since 2016, is that he is no longer a silent adviser: People demand to hear what he says, what he thinks, as an Alpha and Omega on a panoply of subjects.

He live-broadcasted his show for hours every day on media row and was in the position of eminence to introduce international leaders at their conference presentation — a first. He also commanded the stage on a solo basis multiple times, with exhortations to the enthralled crowd, “Onward to Victory!’

Bannon was a Navy officer. I know how difficult it is to keep up attention-getting force — I got an A in “Command Voice” while in Air Force Officer Training School. It’s physically draining! But nothing seems to drain Steve Bannon.

Of course, the lure for everyone on the last day of the conference was to see and hear President Trump in a relatively intimate environment. The nearly universal position of attendees was to ensure that 45 becomes 47.

Contrary to how the left portrays him — as merely a personification of his buildings’ signs, selling himself — President Trump immediately introduced his rapt evidence to the names of South American leaders. Years ago, the regular person on the street barely knew where South America is, let alone recognized and listened to their elected officials to learn how our goals may mirror theirs.

Lest anyone miss the importance of this election, Trump forewarned that the “Biden nightmares, the Imposter and Cheats,” will have a decidedly dark future: “November 5 will be their Judgment Day!”
