Among the highlights: the American Priority conference is sponsored by the premiere Seth Rich truther group. A QAnon panel was planned but cancelled at the last minute, but there should still be a strong presence of Q-believers.

The stars of the fringe right-wing internet are gathering in DC today at the "American Priority Conference," a sort of CPAC for people who couldn't get on a panel at CPAC. Sadly, the free speech crowd has refused to give me a press pass.

Laura Loomer spoke to a nearly empty room in DC today at the American Priority Conference, the internet right's answer to CPAC.

I’m at the conservative American Priority conference in DC, where Roger Stone will be giving a keynote that he promises will be “newsworthy.” Turnout is.....less than stellar.

Pastor Mark Burns is talking to the crowd now -- says it's "normal to lose the House" but that Republicans can't let a Democrat be the next president

"Aren't you glad that we have a president who is a nationalist, and a nationalist is not a racist," Burns says to cheers from the crowd (more people have come in, there's about 30 people here now)

Stone is up now. He said he was “proud” to see Trump’s tweet praising him for his “guts” and dismissed legal analysts who said it could be considered witness tampering.

Stone is going after Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Dem on the House Intel Committee, saying that the congressman is "full of schiff" (sounds a little familiar https://thehill.com/homenews/administra ... dam-schitt …)

Wild theories and empty seats at CPAC-style conference for the MAGA set

Talk of QAnon, George Soros and ‘retarded’ reporters at the American Priority Conference.


At the first-ever Conservative Political Action Conference in 1974, California Gov. Ronald Reagan addressed a ragtag group of conservative insurgents by quoting John Stuart Mill and nobly declaring, “We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.”

At the first-ever American Priority Conference on Friday morning, Anthony Scaramucci — who served a brief stint as the Trump White House’s communications director — addressed a married couple from Virginia, telling them that the author of the fantastical Internet conspiracy theory QAnon has “been dead accurate about so many things,” adding: “When you find out who he is, you’re not going to believe it.”

American Priority, which brings together an impressive roster of right-wing social media agitators and Trump world notables at a Washington, D.C., hotel, was envisioned as a Trumpist answer to CPAC. In reality, the three-day conference, which convened on Thursday, has been rife with conspiracy theorists, logistical snafus and empty seats.

It may also be the future of Republican politics.

“The right’s turning into a coalition and less of an ideological movement,” said conference co-founder Ali Alexander, a Republican operative and Twitter influence. Rather than organize around belief in the tenets of conservatism — like free markets and traditional family values — American Priority seeks to united anyone who supports American nationalism and opposes establishment elites. In practice, this means supporters of President Donald Trump.
