CPAC: Pay to play but no real action!
Phony Self-Congratulatory Talk!
By Larry Klayman
February 27, 2021

This is the week that was and will always be for the so called American Conservative Union’s (“ACU”) conference, otherwise misnamed as the Conservative Political Action Conference or “CPAC” for short.

Run by a Republican lobbyist hack, Matt Schlapp, who I refer to as “Matt Schlock,” which means “rubbish” in Yiddish, this self-proclaimed conservative organization, will this Sunday showcase Donald Trump, a presidential candidate in 2016 who was initially shunned by Schlock and his Republican establishment lobbyist minions. Only after The Donald won the White House, did this profiteering group conveniently and opportunistically throw its lot in with him and his supporters. And four years later, The Donald is again being exploited by CPAC to rake in hard cold cash for ACU’s greedy coffers.

CPAC is a play to pay operation. Just ask Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, which has been donating about fifty thousand dollars a year for the “privilege and honor” of his receiving awards and speaking slots at the conference, as reflected on my former groups 990 tax returns. Indeed, the gathering of so called conservatives who make a living just talking but doing little to nothing in terms of real meaningful action, has become a self-congratulatory televised hot air session to boost their own egos and donor fundraising.

Couple this with the ultimate purveyor of phony watered down “conservatism,” Fox News, which is trying to win back conservative viewers and thus ad dollars after its move left, having seen its television ratings sink even lower than CNN and MSNBC after it threw President Trump under the bus and quickly declared Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election, desperately attaching itself to the CPAC charade.

The likes of this less than dynamic if not disgraceful duo of CPAC and Fox News was among the inspirations for the subtitle of my new book “It Takes A Revolution!,” and was coined “Forget the Scandal Industry!” That is because for most self-proclaimed establishment conservatives, simply grousing about the mounting if not stage 4 cancerous takeover of our nation by socialists, communists, atheists, radical blacks, radical Muslims, radicals of the Marxian Jewish left, radical gays, lesbians and transgenders, and radical feminists –many of whom are also card-carrying members of this former group – is simply a means of self-aggrandizement and clever marketing for cash.

As you read this column, one might say that the author is in a dark mood. Indeed, when it comes to the two-faced do-nothing Republican lobbyist and establishment hacks that seek to pass themselves off at CPAC as real action figures if not “superheroes” representing real conservatives, people of faith and all those who believe in the vision and creation of our Founding Fathers, that may be true. But, despite this, there are fearless and true patriots afoot. Presently they are lurking in the shadows of the hinterland, fearful that the Biden-Harris FBI, which has become the “Gestapo of the Left,” will round them up as this once legitimate agency has being doing with those patriots who were present on January 6, 2021, in the nation’s capital in protest of the fraudulent 2020 elections and the general rank corruption of the three branches of government.

But you will not see these courageous conservatives and patriots showcased at CPAC, sharing the self-congratulatory back scratching stage with the likes of Matt Schlock and his “pay to play” Republican establishment do nothing hacks.

And, you will not read about these patriots on traditional conservative websites, since these sites are now censoring their authors and contributors out of fear that the “Biden-Harris Gestapo” will turn its sights on them, putting them out of business as the left is attempting to do with persons like Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame. It is verboten for instance to make reference on these websites to the events of January 6, 2021, as not an uprising of criminals, but instead the natural reaction of an American people having been put down by the ruling class for far too long; a ruling class that feathers its own nest at the expense of the citizenry.

Indeed, uprisings such as witnessed on January 6, 2021, were predicted by the greatest of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, who proclaimed that when the people fear the government there is tyranny, but when the government fears the people there is liberty. Jefferson predicted a violent revolution every twenty years or so, as he understood the natural degeneration and mounting tyranny of the ruling class, furthered by a corrupt federal judiciary, unelected and thus not accountable to We the People, would be the match that lights these flames.

With the obvious rank corruption of federal judges in particular, including Trump’s own hand-picked Supreme Court justices, who would not even hear The Donald’s fraudulent election challenges, this was the final straw giving way to the American equivalent, in a small way, of the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, which signaled the beginning of the French revolution. Not coincidentally, Jefferson was also one of the architects of the French Revolution.

Fellow patriots, in the words of Thomas Paine, these are not the times for sunshine patriots or summer soldiers, much less the do nothing but big talking empty self-proclaimed conservative clowns who this week are being showcased at CPAC. Given the dire and rock bottom state of the nation, now is the time to do more than talk, and instead act. And act not by fleeing to Cancun, Mexico, as CPAC sponsored blowhard Senator Ted Cruz did when his fellow Texans were literally freezing to death, is not what I have in mind and what the nation’s needs.

Read the Declaration of Independence and then my book, “It Takes a Revolution: Forget the Scandal Industry!,” which can be obtained on line at all major booksellers like and, as well as at, and learn how we can save the nation with peaceful and legal hard hitting actions, to try to avoid a bloody revolution breaking loose as it did beginning on July 4, 1776. And turn off not just Fox News but its slimy colleagues at CPAC, and get to work to revive the republic from the clutches and certain destruction of the socialists, communists and atheists as well as other radicals who, for now, have taken over the republic and enslaved all of us!
