Phyllis Schlafly Nostalgic For 1952, When DAR Was 'Strong, Pro-American Organization'

In a speech today to Breitbart News’ alternative CPAC conference today, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly reminisced about her early work pushing immigration restrictions, boasting that she was active in promoting the 1952 McCarran-Walter Act as member of Daughters of the American Revolution.

“The DAR at that time was a strong, pro-American organization,” she said.

We aren’t sure how Schlafly thinks that DAR has become less “pro-American” in the past 60 years. But we will note one way in which the organization has changed dramatically: while by 1952, the DAR had reversed its 1939 decision to ban African-American singer Marian Anderson from performing at its Constitution Hall, the group did not admit any black members until 1977.

Schlafly's DAR anecdote was couched in a larger speech in which she repeated her frequent assertion that comprehensive immigration reform will be “suicide for the Republican Party.” 

Boykin: Nothing Else Matters Besides Benghazi

Even after a congressional Republican report debunked the myth about a Benghazi “stand down” order, Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin told the alternative CPAC gathering today that the order did in fact take place and that the Obama administration is covering it up.

In fact, he said that the non-existent Benghazi cover-up is the most important issue facing America today.

This is about American character. If we don’t get to the bottom of this, there are a lot of other things in America that don’t matter. If we let this go, if we do not doggedly hound elected representatives in this nation to get the answers out, to get to the bottom of this, then a lot of other things simply don’t matter because this is so fundamental.

CPAC Entertained By Right-Wing Folk Singer

We have literally watched every CPAC conference held over the last ten years and this is the first time we've ever seen organizers schedule a break in the middle of program so that a right-wing folk singer could perform conservative protest songs on the main stage. But that is exactly what happened today when Big Dawg Music Mafia ("Where Conservative Is Cool") was given a few minutes to promote singer Chip Murray who entertained the crowd with insightful lyrics like:

"Obama's in the White House now, you'd better grab your honey,

God and guns are all we need, let's let 'em take the money":

Krikorian Presents Democratic Immigration Reform-Health Insurance Conspiracy Theory

In a video address to the alternative CPAC conferenced hosted by Breitbart News today, Center for Immigration Studies executive director Mark Krikorian claimed that Democrats support higher levels of immigration so that they can “import voters” and “create the conditions, such as increased poverty, increased lack of health insurance, that lead even non-immigrant voters to be more receptive to big government solutions” and to vote Democratic.

John Bolton Vows That Conservatives Will Never Let The Issue Of Benghazi Go Away

Former ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, spoke at CPAC today where he predictably railed against the Obama administration over the attack on Benghazi, saying that it show our enemies around the world that "under Barack Obama, you can murder his personal representative and get away scot-free."

"I want to let everybody know," Bolton declared, "that conservatives are not going to let this issue go away":

Farah: US 'Becoming The Persecutor' Of Christians, Leading To Next Holocaust

WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah claims that the United States under the Obama administration is emerging as a chief “persecutor” of Christians, which may result in another Holocaust.

Farah points to the case of the Romeike family as proof that “next time it will be Christians” who will be victims of the Holocaust. The Romeikes, a German homeschooling family, recently lost their case for asylum in the US until the Department of Homeland Security granted them “indefinite deferred status.”

Before and during World War II, hundreds of thousands of German Jews seeking safe harbor in the U.S. were unceremoniously turned away and returned to certain death in the Nazi Holocaust.

“Never again,” has been the popular refrain for Jews ever since.

Jews had to found a well-defended state of their own to protect themselves against similar horrors.

Maybe the next time it will be Christians.



Until 48 hours ago, the Christian, homeschooling Romeike family, fleeing Nazi-era laws still on the books in Germany, was about to be sent back to Germany to face persecution. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, after the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of their case, the Department of Homeland Security offered a reprieve.



A society that could even think about turning people like the Romeikes away to face certain persecution is one short step away from becoming the persecutor.

Sen. Pat Toomey Praises The Smear Campaign Against Debo Adegbile

As Miranda noted yesterday, the Right had launched a full-scale smear campaign Debo Adegbile, who had been nominated by President Obama to serve as head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, over the fact that Adegbile was in charge of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund when it helped provide legal representation to Mumia Abu-Jamal.

That campaign against him succeeded as yesterday the Senate failed to confirm his nomination and Sen. Pat Toomey could not be more proud, making the case against Adegbile the focus on the remarks he delivered a CPAC today, asserting that the effort to defend Abu-Jamal was part of an "international campaign to lionize a cop-killer" that "was based on hatred for America, contempt for our criminal justice system, and the goal was to indict America as a hopelessly racist country."

And Toomey was not going to accept that, which is why he launched the fight against Adegbile's nomination because "nobody should be able to make a mockery criminal justice system, fan the flames of racial strife in America, join a dishonest international anti-American campaign, along the way drag the family of a fallen police officer through three decades of hell and then be confirmed to a high post in the Justice Department":

Steve King Compares Immigration Enforcement To Recreational Fishing

Speaking at today’s “Homeland Threats” national security summit, an alternative to CPAC hosted by Brietbart News and moderated by Frank Gaffney, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) compared immigration enforcement on the southern border to recreational fishing.

He told a story about going out with border patrol agents who would “catch and release” immigrants like a recreational fisher because they “like their jobs” and want to keep them.

Later in the speech, King said that when Reagan signed an immigration reform bill in 1986, he was so angry that he “kicked my filing cabinet.” If immigration reform passes again, King warned, “we won’t be able to restore the rule of law within the lifetime of this republic.”
