Pat Buchanan: The Sea Island Conspiracy

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Over the long weekend before the Mississippi and Michigan primaries, the sky above Sea Island was black with corporate jets.

Apple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, Napster’s Sean Parker, Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk, and other members of the super-rich were jetting in to the exclusive Georgia resort, ostensibly to participate in the annual World Forum of the American Enterprise Institute.

Among the advertised topics of discussion: “Millennials: How Much Do They Matter and What Do They Want?”

That was the cover story.

Patrick J. Buchanan: Walter Jones Repels a War Party Attack

Pat's latest column illustrates perfectly why we will never again give blanket allegiance to the Republican Party.  We will support principled, conservative candidates like Walter Jones.  Those GOP candidates that Karl Rove and Dana Perino oppose are, more than likely, those we will support.  It's sad that it has come to picking candidates based on their enemies, but as the great Churchill said:
“You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

By Patrick J. Buchanan

The GOP Beltway establishment is celebrating the victory of Thom Tillis, Speaker of the North Carolina House, over his Tea Party and Evangelical rivals in Tuesday’s primary for the U.S. Senate.

But the story ended less happily for the Beltway elite in the Tar Heel State’s 3rd Congressional District. There, the planned purge of Rep. Walter Jones was repulsed by his loyal Republican base.

Yet, this massively funded effort, to kill the career of a 20-year House veteran, whose father held the seat for decades before him, testifies eloquently to the intolerance of the ideological and monied elite of the party to which conservatives give allegiance.
