DALLAS, Texas (LifeSiteNews) – This year’s annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which was headlined by speakers President Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, and the current Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban among many others, demonstrated a renewed commitment by conservatives to once again ‘make America great’ and to spread that greatness throughout the world.
“America is on the edge of an abyss and our movement is the only force on earth that can save it,” said President Trump at the event’s keynote speech.
What we do in the next few months and the next few years will determine whether American civilization will collapse or fail, or whether it will triumph and thrive, frankly, like never before. This is no time for complacency. We cannot be complacent.
Attendees of the event voiced their continued support for Trump, his statements, and the idea of another presidential run.
“We need Trump back,” said Patrick Madden to LifeSiteNews correspondent Ashley Sadler. “We have got to get the nuclear family back.”
“You name it, he was right about it,” said another patriotically-festooned, Trump-supporting attendee.
“He has done more for our organization, our country, and these children, than any other President in history,” concluded one pro-life booth worker.
Another dominant theme that emerged at the event was an acknowledgment that it was largely due to Trump that the “deep state’s” criminal operations have been — and continue to be — brought to light.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.
SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump.
This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.
The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.— Benny Johnson 🍊 (@bennyjohnson) August 9, 2022
No one will ever forget this.
We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness.
SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST!
This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.
This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.
We won’t know how fully insane the FBI raid on Trump is until we see the warrant and warrant application. But after Russiagate – years of investigation predicated largely on Clinton campaign misinformation -- if the basis for this isn’t bedrock-solid, there should be hell to pay.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 9, 2022
Destroying 30K classified emails with a hammer and bleach doesn’t get your home searched. Remember that.— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) August 9, 2022
American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.
SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.
The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 9, 2022
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.
Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down!
P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 9, 2022
“Everything got exposed because of the 2020 election,” exclaimed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to Sadler.
All the corrupt republicans that were popping up, like Brad Raspberger, some of the biggest criminals this country has ever seen. All of the horrible, horrible news outlets like Fox News, that never talk about this crime in this country, the election, Newsmax…all the conservative media that won’t speak out about the machines and what really took our country.
“And then exposing all the platforms: Zuckerberg’s Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Vimeo, the list goes on, that were against the people,” Lindell continued. “All of this stuff got exposed because of our great president Donald Trump.”
Indeed, the view that Trump is a champion of the people, opposing their enemies—big tech and big media—resonated strongly at the event.
“Fake news is all we get. They are the enemy of people,” said Trump to thunderous applause. “We are a nation where free speech is no longer allowed.”
Speaking on a panel about the post-Roe world and parental rights, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said that Christians must be outspoken if American conservatives want to put the nation back on a trajectory where the fundamental values of freedom and life are authentically respected.
When the Church stands up to politicians and parties, ‘Stop killing babies. Stop suppressing the freedom of the Church. Stop indoctrinating our children. Stop destroying our country.’ When the Church stands up and talks about that in the political realm, that’s not the Church being too political. That’s the Church being the Church.
All Christians, said Fr. Pavone, begin their work of transforming the world from a starting-point of victory, the triumph of the cross and resurrection of Christ.
One of Fr. Pavone’s panel counterparts, Jack Brewer, Chairman of the America First Policy Institute’s program Center for Opportunity Now, inferred that the real transformation of the country will only be achieved when the nation re-aligns its focus on God and His values.
“It’s time to make America great again in the spirit,” he concluded.
