After Trump Invites Him Onstage, Activist Reveals Truth Behind What’s Happening to Conservatives on College Campuses

Reported By Alec Schemmel | Published March 2, 2019 at 2:16pm | Modified March 3, 2019 at 2:12pm

During President Donald Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday, he took a moment to recognize the discrimination conservative students face on college campuses.

“I turn on my television the other day and I saw somebody that was violently punched in the face,” Trump said to his audience at CPAC.

“The man’s name is Hayden Williams,” Trump added. “Hayden come up here please.”

Williams jumped onstage to say a few words, but he refused to use his several seconds of fame to talk about himself.

“It’s great that I’m being recognized,” he said, “but there’s so many conservative students across the country who are facing discrimination, harassment and worse if they dare to speak up on campus.”

Williams is a field representative at the Leadership Institute, a non-profit organization based of Arlington, Virginia, which aims to help fight the liberal bias that has infested America’s campuses. Williams was on UC Berkley’s campus on Feb. 19 helping local student activists when Zachary Greenberg, 28, allegedly assaulted him. Greenberg was arrested by UCPD on Friday afternoon and was being held on a $30,000 bond at Glenn Dyer Jail in Oakland.

“It’s as important now than ever the work at Leadership Institute and Campus Reform exposing these liberal abuses to the public,” said Williams, “and these students do it because they have a love of our nation and freedom.”

Williams said that if progressive socialists had their way, the Constitution would be put through a paper shredder.

“If you keep defending us, we’ll keep defending you,” Williams said of Trump.

The audience roared in approval as Trump announced a new executive order which requires colleges and universities to support free speech.

“If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden, and many other great young people … to speak,” Trump said.

At CPAC, Trump Announced A New EO To Protect Free Speech On Campus

Written by Wes Walker on March 5, 2019

Trump went WAY off-script at CPAC, covering a bunch of topics and the crowd loved it! But among the things that were planned was the President’s response to the rise of the authoritarian Left on campus.

You can suppress speech, or you can have government money — but not both.

Here’s your President working his magic:

“We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous,” Trump said. “Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus.”

“Today I’m proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research grants.”

He punctuated his point by bringing up Hayden Williams, the guy who was sucker-punched in the face at Berkeley while tabling. The Violent Snowflake Who Beat Up MAGA Student Better Brace Himself For Jail — the attacker has since been formally charged.

With all the examples of schools shutting down right-of-center guest speakers, limiting their attendance, or turning a blind eye when left-wing agitators break up meetings, this will speak in a language they can understand.

So many times, STUDENTS are told what they are or are not allowed to do in a government-funded school (BAD TEACHER: Middle School Teacher Forbids Reading Bible During “Free Time”, and Dear Apolitical Christians: This CA Bill Could Ban The Bible And The Christian Worldview for example), even though Original Intent of the Establishment Clause was to protect the religious and free speech rights of the citizen, not curtail it.

It will be nice to see that flipped around to say that if you want government money, you will treat free citizens AS free citizens, and leave their speech alone.

There he goes standing up for the rights of American citizens. Clearly that’s proof positive that he’s the second coming of Stalin… or that other guy they keep comparing him with.

With chants of ‘Drain the Swamp’, we sent Trump to Washington for a reason: to protect our Freedoms from the all-consuming appetite of a Leviathan Government. That’s why he started slashing red tape and taxes. He’s getting Government out of the way, so free people — individuals and businesses — can give the double middle-finger to the scolds who recently told us ‘you didn’t build that’.

Biden claimed that Republicans wanted to “put y’all back in chains”. But in two years as President, he’s done the opposite.

Trump came to take the shackles off so that the world could once again hear the Roar of true American Freedom.

Carson to announce new job with Christian group

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is set to announce he has a new job during his Conservative Political Action Conference address on Friday near Washington. Carson, who announced earlier this week that he sees no “political path forward” in his White House campaign has accepted a job as national chairman of My Faith Votes, a nonpartisan organization focused on getting Christian voters to the polls.

“Nothing is more important to me than my personal faith, and it is my faith that motivated me to be involved in the political process to begin with,” Carson said in a statement to Politico.

“I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls,” he continued. “When we do vote, We The People will once again solidify our commitment to the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.” AMEN

The Republican has yet to officially end his presidential campaign, but has struggled in the polls since a brief surge last autumn. He has leaned heavily on his faith on the campaign trail and has connected with evangelical voters despite performing poorly in initial primary contests.

Ben Carson: Ridiculous How Abortion Activists Call Pro-Life People “Anti-Woman”

“We shouldn’t submit to the PC Police, and to people who are trying to control us by intimidation and by IRS audits and by messing with your job,” the retired neurosurgeon said Thursday. “The only reason they can do that is because we sit silently by. That’s what they want us to do.” He referred to how the liberalSouthern Poverty Law Center recently issued a begrudging apology to him after adding him to  an extremist watch list that includes members of the KKK, because of his views against abortion and on other issues.cause of death

The biggest question on the minds of attendees regarding Carson is whether the pro-life doctor will officially seek the GOP nomination for president. Like other potential candidates at the conference, Carson wasn’t there to announce plans to run — but he made it clear he has no interest in the top pro-abortion Democrat for 2016.

“I’m not ready for Hillary. I’m ready for a country that puts our Constitution on the top shelf. And for those that have any doubt, that includes the Second Amendment. I’m for a country where we take the restraints off the most dynamic economy the world has ever known,” he said. hate obama

Carson received standing ovations both when he took and left the stage and his pro-life views have been embraced across the country.

For example, in 2013, Carson shared what he believes about the supposed “war on women” at the Voters Value Summit. He said, “You know, there are those of us in this society who have told women that there’s a war on them because that cute little baby inside of them, they may want to get rid of it and there are people that are keeping you from doing that,” Carson continued. “And women say, ‘No, no, they’re not doing that to me! No!’ And they get all riled up.”


“There is no war on them, the war is on their babies, Babies that cannot defend themselves. Over the past few decades, we have destroyed 55 million of them. And we have the nerve to call other societies of the past heathen. What we need to do is re-educate the women to understand that they are the defenders of these babies.”mommy can you feel me

Carson has said he would decide by May if he will run for president. Currently, pro-life Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry and many others have mentioned their interest in the Republican presidential nomination.Freedom with Prayer

Allen West: ‘Faux Commander in Chief’ Obama Thinks ‘Beards, Turbans, & Hijabs’ More Important Than Vets


Posted on March 17, 2014

Check it out:

Speaking at CPAC earlier this month, Lt. Col. Allen West had some very harsh words for President Obama on the subject of the military and veteran’s benefits.

West’s primary issue in this clip is the reduction in force of our military, as well as deprioritizing of training and equipment in favor of progressive, feel good policy initiatives that, frankly, do nothing for readiness. As long as this administration continues to focus on nonsense like undermining good order and discipline by breaking long traditional and obvious common sense rules of uniforms instead of what is actually necessary for a modern fighting force, a “faux Commander-in-Chief” is about as kind and delicate a description as Obama can expect from a soldier like Allen West.

Rick Perry Calls for Return to Federalism Led by Red States


by 7 Mar 2014

Rick Perry, the Republican governor of Texas, called for a return to federalism on Friday in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference. Quoting Thomas Jefferson, Perry said, “It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefield of ideas… instead of looking to Washington, look to the states.”

The states, Perry argued, are “laboratories of innovation.” It is time to elect national leaders “who devolve power to the states, not rob them of it.”

“It is time for Washington to focus on the few things the constitution establishes as the federal government’s role,” Perry told the receptive crowd. The federal government should “get out of the health care business…get out of the education business… [and] stop hammering industry.”

According to Perry, there are two visions of America at the state level.

In blue states, Perry said, taxes are out of control and jobs are fleeing. In red states, “freedom of the individual comes first. Taxes are low, spending is under control, and jobs are on the rise.”

Perry singled out four Republican governors whose conservative policies are leading to economic growth in their states: Nikki Haley in South Carolina, Bobby Jindal in Louisiana, Scott Walker in Wisconsin, and Rick Scott in Florida.

“Conservative governors trust the people more than the machinery of government,” Perry said. “The contrast with blue states is crystal clear,” he added.

“Let’s pick the two biggest [blue states], New York and California. No two states have lost more personal income to other states,” Perry said. He noted that “it costs twice as much to hire a truck to move from California to Texas as it does to hire a truck to move from Texas to California… You can’t find enough trucks to flee the Golden State.”

Perry cited Texas, the state where he has served as governor for over a decade, as an excellent example of “Red State” success.” We cut taxes, we didn’t spend all the money… we made predictable regulations… we created 30% of the nation’s new jobs.”

As a result, Perry said, Texas has an “economic boom of monumental proportions.”

Perry concluded by saying “the red state-blue state debate really matters” because “the vision that wins out… will determine the future of our nation.”

“There is a price to be paid for policies that destroy our economy and embolden our foreign enemies,” Perry warned.

The Texas governor ended on an upbeat note. “It’s not too late for America to lead in the world but it starts by leading at home.”

“We don’t have to accept recent history,” Perry said. “We just have to change the presidency.”



Sarah Palin: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul Top My 2016 List


by 7 Mar 2014

On Friday, Sarah Palin, whose endorsement may have the most impact in the 2016 GOP presidential contest if she does not run, said that though she did not have a 2016 favorite yet, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) were at the top of her list.

Former South Carolina Senator and Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint has said that Palin’s endorsement has the most impact in GOP primaries, and a recent national survey found that Palin had the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters.

Appearing on Fox News’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren the night before she closes out CPAC for the second time in three years, Palin was asked if a potential candidate was emerging as her favorite.

“No, not yet,” she answered without hesitation.

Van Susteren then asked if there were candidates who were at the top of her list.

“I appreciate those who have fought for America like Ted Cruz, like Rand Paul,” Palin answered before saying that, perhaps, the best candidate may not even be a politician.

“It doesn’t have to be someone who has a title today, someone who’s in office today,” Palin said. “In fact, some would say we need to stay clear of those who have followed a conventional political path. Maybe they are a part of the problem.” 

“There are businessmen and women and strong family men and women who understand what it is that makes America exceptional, and they want to protect that, they want to get back to that; maybe someone like that will rise and be the 2016 candidate, maybe that’s what we need,” she explained.

When asked if she would run in 2016, Palin gave the same answer she always gives: “You never say never.”

She said she does not have a team “doing the poll-tested, whatever they do” to figure out what messages work and test the waters in early presidential primary states. Palin said that she’ll “never say never” and run if there aren’t fighters that appreciate and want to fight to preserve American exceptionalism and the promise of America. Palin said there are so many Americans who “feel like I feel” and “serve this country” and mentioned that “it doesn’t have to be me” running for president.

As Breitbart News has reported and documented, Palin’s influence was proven during the 2012 cycle – as candidates Palin praised before Iowa and South Carolina voted won:

She praised Rick Santorum in December in 2011 when Iowans seemed lukewarm about the field of Republican primary candidates. After Palin made her remarks on December 2 on Fox News’s Hannity, Santorum, who was at four percent in the polls in Iowa – barely above Jon Huntsman, who was not even competing in the state – started getting momentum and eventually won the caucus a month later. Though Santorum had gone “all-in” in Iowa and planted his campaign exclusively in the state, voters were persuaded to consider his candidacy more seriously after Palin spoke kindly of him.

Palin has influence in South Carolina as well, of course – her support of Nikki Haley in the 2010 primary ensured she won the Palmetto State’s gubernatorial election – and her positive comments about Newt Gingrich enabled him to win South Carolina’s presidential primary in 2012.

While the 2012 GOP presidential primary had a clear establishment frontrunner in Mitt Romney and a bevy of weaker candidates who battled to be the anti-Romney, the 2016 primary has strong candidates across the board without a clear frontrunner. If they all run, potential candidates like Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum would each have a significant group of supporters that may get them around 8-15% of the vote.

That may make Palin, if she chooses not to run, the 2016 kingmaker.
