In a remarkable show of lack of Self Awareness, Youtube bans CPAC video where Trump complains about Tech Censorship, suspends their account for a week.
Well, from various reports, it was a barn burner of a speech. So where can you get it? Among others, RSBN (1 hour 33 minutes):
Sunday, July 11, 2021: Join the RSBN crew LIVE from Dallas, TX with wall-to-wall coverage of CPAC 2021: America UnCanceled. President Donald Trump is expected to address the general session on Sunday.
At the 19 to 20 minute point he gets into the censorship issue. Supposedly it ramps up toward the last half hour.
Update: Well, it does ramp up toward the end, but much of the content is similar to what is in his rally speeches. So yeah, “inflammatory” to the Left, but rational to anyone else.
At 70% in the straw poll, he’s up over the last CPAC by double digits. He’s pretty much got the 2024 nomination locked in. DeSantis got a respectable 21%. That, IMHO, guarantees him the VP Slot.
Pence has ended his political career. As a Republican, at least. Best he can hope for is to retire and carp from the sidelines on CNN…
Here’s the FOX news report on it:

Trump easily wins CPAC 2024 GOP presidential nomination straw poll
The former president improved on his straw poll performance from CPAC Orlando in February
DALLAS – Former President Donald Trump easily won the 2024 GOP presidential nomination poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gathering this weekend in Texas.
Trump, who’s repeatedly flirted with making another presidential run in 2024 to try and return to the White House, captured 70% of ballots cast in the anonymous straw poll, according to results announced by CPAC on Sunday afternoon.
That’s a boost from the 55% support he won in the hypothetical 2024 Republican primary matchup straw poll at CPAC Orlando in late February.
They have a chart of the vote.
Trump at 70%
1% guys? Rand Paul, Nikki Haley, Ted Cruz, Tucker Carlson, Kristi Noem, Mike Pompeo
Bringing up the ZERO No Way Rear? Greg Abbott,Mike Pence, Ben Carson, Josh Hawley, Marco Rubio, Tom Cotton, Charlie Baker, John Kasich, Larry Hogan, and last on the zero list: Mitt Romney.
There’s also something that looks like “Q7 Other” at zero, but no idea what that means.
DeSantis, a first-term governor and Trump ally who soared in popularity among conservatives nationwide for his resistance to lockdowns and COVID restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic, easily topped a second 2024 ballot question – without Trump on the hypothetical ballot.
DeSantis grabbed 68% support on that question, with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at 5%. Donald Trump Jr. and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas were both at 4%, with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem at 3%. No one else topped 2%.
The straw poll results, along with the former president’s headliner speech on Sunday, were the most anticipated moments at the three-day gathering of conservative activists and leaders from across the country.
