From Fox News:
Former President Donald Trump will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event in Dallas in July, Fox News has learned, in what will be one of his most high-profile public appearances since leaving the White House.
Trump gave a biting speech at the CPAC event in Orlando, Florida in February, tearing into the Biden administration and “establishment” Republicans as he teased his continued involvement in GOP politics.
“CPAC’s theme for 2021 is America UnCanceled,” American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp said in a statement about Trump speaking at the CPAC event in Dallas. “We’re honored that he’ll join us in Dallas and remind us that freedom means never being silenced.”
The Dallas event will run from July 9 to July 11.
“A corrupt alliance of Jim-Crow-shouting elected officials dead-set on cutting out voter ID, Silicon Valley censorship czars, woke school boards and corporate CEOs, and a legacy media operation on life support are working together to silence and cancel the voices and votes of conservatives,” Schlapp also said regarding the theme of the event.
Trump remains highly popular in the Republican Party and handily won the CPAC presidential straw poll at the group’s event in February.
The former president has signaled that he plans to get involved in several 2022 Republican primaries, and he continues to loom large over the 2024 presidential race, with most expecting that he will win the nomination if he decides to run. Most Republicans have concluded that their best path for future electoral success involves embracing Trump, even as he continues to push unproven claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

‘MAGA’ MISTAKE! Covington Student SUES Washington Post for $250 MILLION Over Viral Video
Lawyers representing the Covington High School student featured in a now infamous viral video announced Tuesday night their plans to sue the Washington Post for $250 million in “punitive damages.”
The lawsuit -filed in Kentucky- claims the Post used “a modern-day form of McCarthyism” by “using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president.”
Court filings show the suit claims the national newspaper “falsely accused Nicholas of … ‘accost[ing]’ Phillips by ‘suddenly swarm[ing]’ him in a ‘threaten[ing]’ and ‘physically intimidat[ing]’ manner … ‘block[ing]’ Phillips path, refusing to allow Phillips ‘to retreat,’ ‘taunting the dispersing indigenous crowd,’ [and] chanting, ‘Build that wall,’ ‘Trump2020,’ or ‘Go back to Africa,’ and otherwise engaging in racist and improper conduct.”
