LEAK: Ben Shapiro Sponsor Smears Charlie Kirk, Says TPUSA ‘Could Inflict’ ‘Permanent Damage’

Published

on

First reported by Paul Joseph Watson, a club for college conservatives which exclusively sponsors Daily Wire founder and avowed NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro’s college speaking tour, issued an internal memo with a directive to steer young conservatives away from another popular group for conservative students.

“Although it runs counter to our instincts to advise students against becoming involved with other conservative organizations, students deserve to be warned about TPUSA,” said a leaked internal memo from Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

Turning Point USA (TPUSA), founded by Charlie Kirk, is perhaps the most well-known, and certainly the most rapidly growing campus club for young conservatives. The leadership of the group, including firebrand Candace Owens, is known to support President Donald J. Trump.

“Kirk founded TPUSA with no college experience,” the memo says. “He has taken some classes, but has not graduated. His focus has always been on building his own brand, not strengthening the Conservative Movement.”

YAF is obviously concerned with building its own brand too. If the group was not worried about its brand losing value, it would not have put out a directive to avoid TPUSA. Apparently, YAF supports the free market only when it is winning. As Milton Friedman, one of the greatest free market economists ever to walk the earth once said, “Society runs on individuals pursuing their own self-interests.”

“The silence of conservative leaders enabled Kirk to build TPUSA at a fast pace,” the memo says. “The long-term damage TPUSA could inflict on conservative students and the Conservative Movement can no longer be ignored.”

The “damage” YAF is referring to is the “America First” brand of Republicanism made popular by Trump. YAF is surely looking to protect the neoconservative movement – one that supports “conservatives” like Bill Kristol, the entire Bush family, and of course Shapiro. This brand of conservatism has failed to conserve anything. It has lost on every issue that is supposedly important to “conservatives,” including but not limited to: small government, government spending, gay marriage, abortion, gun rights, and immigration.

Positive results in some of these areas under President Trump seem to have YAF hot and bothered. Never mind what the free market of ideas wants, YAF needs to retain its control so it can churn out the next generation of National Review-reading neocons who will elect President Nikki Haley (Globalist-SC) in 2024. Then the establishment will be able to breathe a sigh of relief and go back to business as usual. Is it any wonder these people sponsor Shapiro as their mouthpiece?

Worth noting, Shapiro was the keynote speaker at TPUSA’s Student Action Summit in December. Perhaps TPUSA flew too close to the sun by hosting YAF’s young star, and YAF panicked.

YAF can dream all it wants. The NeverTrump establishment is breathing its last breaths, never to be revived.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
