This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending my second Turning the Tides conference in Annapolis, MD as a speaker. I previously spoke at the event in January 2013 on their “Cheated Generation” panel. This year, my sister Anna Maria joined me at the conference as a blogger.
This year, I spoke alongside 14-year-old activist Leonard Robinson III and Maryland College Republican chair/John Hopkins student Christine McEvoy on the “Liberty Issues of the Youth” panel.
Twitchy reported on the event:
Saturday’s Turning the Tides Conference in Annapolis, Md., featured an impressive array of speakers, including Dr. Alveda King, Niger Innes, Dan Bongino, Gabby Hoffman, Larry O’Connor and more, addressing topics such as “Campaign Dos and Don’ts,” “Refute the Tests,” and “Liberty Issues of the Youth.”
My sister blogged about the conference behalf of Counter Cultured. Here are her three blog posts: “Liberty Issues of the Youth“; “Change the Game“; and “Bullet or the Bribe.”
I want to thank Tonya Tiffany and Jim Jamitis for inviting me to speak. I encourage everyone to support and get involved with Maryland Citizen Action Network!
All conservatives and libertarians in the DC metro should attend Maryland Conservative Action Network’s “Turning the Tides” conference in Annapolis, MD.
Here’s what will transpire on January 12, 2013:
Join us for frank discussion about where we go from here. Topics will include what to expect from both Washington, DC and Annapolis, improving our ground game, national security, the left’s war on the suburbs, how “green energy” schemes are hurting our national and state economy, and more.

My friend and fellow activist Christian Hartsock just released a video called the “Landrieu Dance” today, which stars ACORN nutcracker James O’Keefe (who also is another friend of mine).
After watching the video and seeing the final product, I can personally say it turned out great! Little do people know that I was a Production Assistant for the video, alongside my friend Kelly Steele. My other activist friend, Ryan Sorba, was an actor in the music video, as well.
Interestingly enough, production for the video lasted nearly 22 hours! Despite how grueling and demanding it was (I mean this in a good sense, as making a good-quality video beckons patience, editing, re-shooting, frustration, and the like), it was worth every breath and minute of my time this past August.
Viewers will see that the video is fun, hip, and innovative. It’s a mash-up of O’Keefe stings, undercover videos, media response, and lighthearted clips. O’Keefe shows off his moon-walking skills, singing capability, and truthfulness that many fail to account for when he comes to mind.
Let me assure you that the music video, nor the clips featured, were heavily edited. Haters can hate, but you’ll only realize the truth after the fact.
