Conservatives go west?

Friday marks the start of the two-day Western Conservative Summit, staged in Denver and organized by the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University. Considered the largest gathering of conservatives outside of Washington, D.C., the event both celebrates and advances faith, family and freedom, organizers say.

These folks mean business.

Workshops include such topics as “Stop complaining, and take back your country by taking back your community,” “Three punches to knock down Democratic socialism,” “The culture of suppression: Can campus free speech be saved?” and “From equal pay to paid leave: How to fight the Left’s wooing of women.”

The extensive speaker’s roster includes a noteworthy son.

“Donald Trump Jr. is one of the boldest conservative voices in the nation. He is a warrior for limited government, free markets, personal freedom and the Constitution. We are elated he will be speaking at the summit,” said Jeff Hunt, event chairman.

Also in attendance: Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson; Republican Sen. Cory Gardner; Reps. Ken Buck, Dan Crenshaw, Doug Lamborn, Paul Gosar and Ralph Norman; former special investigator Ken Starr; Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton; Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell; pro-life activist Abby Johnson; plus columnist Michelle Malkin, and veteran analysts Frank Gaffney and David Horowitz. Washington Times opinion editor and columnist Charles Hurt is also on the 50-person speaker’s program.
