National security experts not invited to CPAC hold their own conference this Thursday

It is called the Uninvited II and is co-hosted by Breitbart.  One of the speakers will be former 6th District Congressman Roscoe Bartlett a national expert on the threat posed by Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) as a potential weapons system.  (I don’t know if that is his topic for this summit.)

Because this is a subject we’ve discussed extensively on these pages for years—-CPAC’s exclusion of experts on national defense, Islamic terrorism and the threat from uncontrolled immigration—-it’s important that we mention the gathering this Thursday (March 6th) on the same day as CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), a national event put on by the American Conservative Union, opens in Washington.

Grover Norquist is most often fingered as the primary impediment to the discussion of these important issues at CPAC as we have chronicled in innumerable posts (click here for Norquist and CPAC) over the years.

***Update*** Sign the petition!  Grover must go!

I love the photo Breitbart used to illustrate its story today (Hat tip: Richard Falknor Blue Ridge Forum***):

Breitbart News Network will hosting its second annual national security forum during the Conservative Political Action Conference and expand the event from a single panel to a full day of events with top conservative leaders.

Speakers for the event include former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Trent Franks (R-AZ), and Jim Bridenstine (R-OK).

Many of the speakers presenting at the Uninvited II were not invited to CPAC, which is organized by the American Conservative Union.

EMPAct America’s Henry Schwartz and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon will be leading the summit; Center for Security Policy President and former Reagan official Frank Gaffney will moderate.

There will be panel discussions on Benghazi, the Muslim Brotherhood and Amnesty—topics apparently too hot for the ACU board of directors! Indeed!  Pamela Geller once said CPAC was for “sissies!”

Go to Breitbart, here, for more details and a list of additional speakers.
