Several organizations were disappointed following the 2020 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
The theme of this year’s CPAC was “America vs. Socialism.” After all, this is an election cycle with a self-described democratic socialist in Bernie Sanders running for office.
Billy Binion of Reason wrote “notably absent from the CPAC agenda was anything pertaining to the debt, deficit, or current levels of absurd government spending—an odd choice for a conference that sought to position itself as a banner carrier for responsible fiscal policy.”
Instead, the conference focused around “incendiary characters like Diamond and Silk, Charlie Kirk, and Candace Owens, who do more to caricature the Right than provide constructive policy ideas. “
When it came to substance, this conference did not deliver whatsoever.
Binion highlighted what was truly missing about America’s growing deficit:
“Trump has ‘fully embraced the idea that deficits don’t matter,’ writes Steven Greenhut for Reason, with fantastical budget proposals that fail to right America’s fiscal ship. His 2021 budget, for instance, requests $4.8 trillion in spending—a 21 percent increase from when Trump took office.”
Binion concluded by stating that “’America vs. Socialism,’ it turns out, was real-life clickbait.”
Reason posted a brief snippet of this article on Twitter, tweeting “Notably absent from the CPAC agenda was anything pertaining to the debt, deficit, or current levels of absurd government spending.”
This tweet prompted a response from the Twitter account of Center for Immigration Studies who said “Also absent was anything about the excessively high level of immigration.”
Indeed, both immigration and mass migration are some of the biggest issues confronting America.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, there are 14.3 million illegal aliens, which cost American taxpayers $132 billion annually.
The national debt stands at $23 trillion at the moment.
However, the immigration question has a civilizational quality to it.
Based on the voting patterns of migrants coming to America after the 1965 Immigration Act, traditional American freedoms such as private gun ownership and freedom of speech could be potentially under threat once these migrants and their descendants become full-blown political participants.
For that reason, GOP voters view immigration as the #1 issue heading into November 2020, according to a BLP report.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
