Breitbart: Sarah Palin Confirmed to Speak at CPAC





In an exclusive report, Breitbart has confirmation that Governor Palin is speaking at this year’s CPAC convention:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Breitbart News has learned exclusively. CPAC is an annual gathering of thousands of conservative activists hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU).

“We are pleased to again welcome Governor Sarah Palin to CPAC in March,” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said in a release provided to Breitbart News. “Governor Palin electrified the crowd in 2013, and we are thrilled to welcome her back this year.”

[...]

“Sarah Palin was the 2008 Vice Presidential Nominee and is the former Governor of Alaska,” the ACU press release announcing Palin as a CPAC speaker reads. “Governor Palin first made history on Dec. 4, 2006 when sworn in as the 11th and first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain selected Governor Palin to join him as his running mate in his historic presidential campaign. Governor Palin is the first woman to run on the Republican Party’s presidential ticket. Since her vice presidential run and governorship, Sarah Palin has remained one of the leading conservative voices in the nation. Time Magazine has ranked her among the world’s most influential people.”

The ACU also notes that Palin is a “three time New York Times best selling Author” and “has a new show ‘Amazing America’ debuting on the Sportsman Channel on April 3rd.”

[...]

At previous CPACs, Palin has riled up the movement and helped activists tear into Washington in a way hardly any leaders have been able to do.

CPAC, an annual event aimed at unifying the movement and connecting leaders with grassroots activists, will happen this year from March 6 through March 8 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, right outside Washington, D.C.

Other confirmed speakers for CPAC include Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ted Cruz (R-TX), House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Govs. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and Chris Christie (R-NJ), former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), businessman Donald Trump, and Dr. Ben Carson.

Cardenas encourages those interested in the event to visit CPAC.org for tickets and information.

Alright… Who’s going?

  • Lemuel Vargas

    Everybody in here should go to Breitbart to defend against the bashing of Sarah Palin there.

  • patnatasha

    I wish i could go.

    • BermudaBob

      I am trying to talk my wife into going. :-)

  • cathnealon

    I admire and voted for Palin in 2008. Even met her at a rally here in my hometown and got her autograph but CPAC organizers are not doingt regular American people a favor by putting on thses shows every year since the takeover of our country. The speakers get paid aot of money while taxpayers shell out theirs and exactly what has changed? The communists are getting worse every day. Why not change up CPAC organizers? Why not get a bunch of working class millenials, even if they voted for the Marxist, to get up on that stage one after another and tell there story of betrayal. All 3 days should be fileld with their stories for God’s sake. Get plumbers, coal miners, ice creams store owners,truck drivers, janitors, whomeever will come–show the Left we can relate to the proletariat as much as they can.
    (aside): Dr Carson has never been asked about his trip to Cuba or his previous leftist statements on getting rid of insurance companies and the call for universal health coverage.– he’s a leftist in conservative clothing. Get him off the program.

    • angeleno

      Could we have a little more clarity about what you mean about Carson wanting to "get rid of insurance companies"? Many, many doctors, including conservative, were unhappy about the red tape, low reimbursement and high-handed attitudes of insurance companies even before Obamacare which made everything 10 times worse. That doesn’t make Carson a leftist. And why did he take a trip to Cuba? For humanitarian reasons? ..while Dem politicians go there every week to support communism. Supply facts before you make accusations.

      • cathnealon

        In America the Beautiful he states that he and his wife went to Cuba with "young businessmen" in 2011. He does not give the reason. If it was "for humanitarian reasons" what does that mean? Did Beyonce and Jay Z go for humanitarian reasons? How about Michael Moore? How about Sheila Jackson Lee? Did Clarence Thomas, Sowell or Walter Williams or Herman Cain go to Cuba? A real conservative rails against the murderer Castro and if he goes to Cuba he better damn well explain why!

        In interview after interview Carson says the government needs to be responsible for catastrophic healthcare-he says the insurance companies are the problem, not the government–he says in a 2010 Megadiversities interview, ‘"he government should get patients to go to clinics not the emergency room. Hear that? The government. Does he mean we should get rid of EMTALA–a law enacted under Ronald Reagan to help the poor?

        Carson needs to be vertted for his immigratiomn and Second amendment statements also. Not one journalist or cable personality has asked him to explain himself. In fact, the same personalities that call Obama supporters zombies for not vetting Obama and looking into his past are more than willing to judge Carson on one speech and give him access to major conservative players. How insane after 5 years of Obama. Carson claims he has been conservative since the mid-90′s. Then why the heck was he on a program in January 2008 to "celebrate change" in a pre inaugural concert with Al Sharpton!

        Lately Carson has been spouting on and on about communism, Alinsky, Gestapo, etc. Before his 2013 Prayer Breakfast speech he never used these words or references? Why not? He has been on the speaking circuit since the late 1980′s so that certainly was not his first speech. Why wasn’t he railing against Obamcare with the Tea Party and the 9/11 crowd in 2009 in Sept and Novemebr and at townhalls. No, he was at a townhall featuring none other than Howard Dean whom he saye is "an honest man."

        Too many red flags. Sorry. Please go ahead and trust anybody who comes along speaking fluent conservative-ese. But the stakes are too high now that we have a bona fide Leninist in the White House. Lenin’s first directive at the first Comintern was ‘infiltrate the oppostion."

        • angeleno

          Your second post is more incoherent than the first.
          Carson wasn’t out making speeches at Tea Party rallies the first day the TP began because he was busy operating on people’s brains, a service you need right away.

          • cathnealon

            Dr. Carson found time to write 5 books, give hundreds and hundreds of commencement and motivational speeches since 1989 all the while performing brain surgery. He has been represented by a speakers firm for over rwo decades–again I ask why did he not come forward in 2009, 2010 before Obama signed the ACA into law?
            Why did he appear on stage in 2005 with the likes of Hillary Clinton, Charles Ogletree, Danny Davis, Harry Belafonte and Sheila Jackson Lee and not take them to task for their radicalism and communist leanings? This was 20 years after he claims he turned conservative. Guess who wasn’t on that stage? Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, JC Watts or any other black conservative. Was it because they are true conservatives who would only agree to be on such a panel if they could present the conservative side and call out the communists for what they are? I have looked at the 2-hour video in this article and it is stunning. http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/12/ben_carson_in_his_own_words.html
            Please, instead of calling me incoherent, vet this man. We cannot afford to trust anyone on the basis of a speech.
