2017 CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
September 15-16, 2017 in Fabulous LAS VEGAS!
Dear Fellow “Deplorable,”
Don’t miss out on our one-of-a-kind celebration of “Draining the Swamp” to “Make America Great Again” this September 15-16 at the 2017 Conservative Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
YES, IT’S OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
This isn’t just another “political conference.” It’s a unique, profoundly different EXPERIENCE – unlike anything you’ve ever attended.
“I have attended similar events that can be very boring.
This was not one of them!” – Robin Reedy
If you skip this year, you’ll be making a YUGE mistake!
Once you see what we have in store for you, you’re really, really, REALLY gonna wanna join us.
Amazing conservative speakers? Provocative panel discussions?
Absolutely! But so much MORE…
President of Americans for Tax Reform
Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform & CLC ’17 Co-host, is the father of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and widely recognized at “The Taxpayer’s Best Friend.” He is an author, columnist, podcast host and regular guest on talk-radio and cable and network television programs.
Grover founded Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) in 1985 during the Reagan Revolution and has hosted the famous Wednesday Meeting – an invitation-only weekly gathering of more than 100 conservative activists, leaders, elected officials and policy makers – since 1993. He is also on the board of directors for the National Rifle Association.
Grover has a wickedly dry sense of humor and is known for quips such as explaining that he’s not in favor of abolishing the government, but just wants to “shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.” He’s also compared Republicans who vote for tax hikes as “ratheads in a Coke bottle.”
In November 2011, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) blamed the Tax Pledge’s influence for keeping congressional Republicans from raising taxes, claiming GOP Members “are being led like puppets by Grover Norquist.” Might be the only true thing Harry Reid has ever said about a conservative!
Herman Cain is an author, syndicated columnist, former business executive and conservative talk-show host. He also helped launch the tea party movement in Las Vegas in April 2009 at a rally in Sunset Park. As he began his remarks, the clouds disappeared, the sun came out and the sky turned blue! THAT’S the power of the “Hermanator.”
In his business career, Cain was a top executive at some of the nation’s largest and most successful corporations, including Godfather’s Pizza, Burger King and Pillsbury Company. He was also CEO of the National Restaurant Association and served as chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1989 to 1991.
Cain, a cancer survivor, ran as a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Georgia in 2004 and was a GOP presidential candidate in 2012, where he immortalized his famous “9-9-9” tax plan. He is a regular guest on national cable news programs and currently hosts The Herman Cain Show on Atlanta talk radio station WSB.
Joy Villa is a talented, multi-racial, millennial actress/singer/songwriter whose eye-popping “Make America Great Again” dress at the 2017 Grammy Awards had Hollywood liberals howling like crazy.
“The publicity from the dress,” according to Wikipedia, “resulted in Villa’s EP I Make the Static hitting #1 among digital downloads on Amazon.com and iTunes in the US. It climbed up the Top 100 of several other countries’ iTunes charts too, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Brazil.
“The album sold over 15,000 copies in the following two days and debuted on the Billboard charts the next week at #12 with 29,000 album equivalent units – 27,000 of which were pure album sales. The EP also ranked at #2 on the Digital Albums chart and # 6 on the Top Album Sales chart, as well as being the top selling rock/alternative album of the week.”
The liberal blowback over her MAGA Grammy dress went “viral” and resulted in a White House visit with Ivanka Trump in June. Joy regularly and unapologetically opines on her pro-Trump support and overall conservatism on social media, as well as radio and cable TV news programs.
Kaya Jones began her music career at a very young age as a classically-trained violinist. She was signed to a development contract at the age of 12 and at the age of 18 was one of the lead singers and founding members of The Pussycat Dolls. She has since moved on to a successful solo career.
Kaya has worked with Britney Spears, Mick Jagger, D12, R. Kelly, Dada Life, Eminem, Backstreet Boys, Katy Perry and many more. At the age of 26, she became the youngest female in history to start her own record label, HueMan Race Records.
Kaya credits fellow singer/songwriter Joy Villa – whose “Make America Great Again” gown at the 2017 Grammies shook up the entertainment world – with giving her the courage to go public with her support of President Donald Trump, for which she has been viciously attacked in social media, including death threats.
Charlie Kirk is the Founder and Executive Director of Turning Point USA, a national student movement dedicated to identifying, organizing, and empowering young people to promote the principles of free markets, and limited government.
Since the inception of Turning Point USA on June 5th of 2012, Charlie has grown Turning Point USA from nothing to having representation on over 1,200 high schools and college campuses nationwide and over 150 full time staff.
At 23 years old, he has appeared on Fox News, CNBC, and FOX Business News over 200 times. He is also a best-selling author, was the youngest speaker at the 2016 Republican National Convention, and a proud Eagle Scout.
In 2011, Ann-Marie Murrell helped create a popular weekly web TV talk show called “PolitiChicks”. Although the show ended, the website continued and now serves as a major platform for hundreds of women and men writers across the U.S.
Over the years many different names and faces have represented “The PolitiChicks”. Today, PolitiChicks.com is led by co-owners Murrell and Morgan Brittany and new National Spokeswoman Sonya Sasser.
The website has millions of readers and hundreds of thousands of followers on social media and PolitiChicks are national speakers appearing at major events throughout America. They are also frequent guests on conservative talk-radio and cable news programs.
“PolitiChicks.com understands that freedom and liberty must be maintained and protected with vigilance and with the constant support of the American people,” the trio writes on their website. “Without that vigilance, tyranny moves in. We refuse to allow that to happen on our watch.”
Elbert Guillory is a former African-American state senator from Louisiana who turned the political world upside down with his 4-minute video in 2013 in which he explained why he switched parties and became a Republican.
Guillory referred to his party-switch as “not only right for me, but for all of my brothers and sisters in the black community.” The video went viral – a half million YouTube views in just the first three days – and the Left went bonkers, calling him an “Uncle Tom” and an “Oreo” (black on the outside, white on the inside).
Shortly after his party switch Guillory founded the Free at Last PAC, a political action committee dedicated to electing black conservatives to office. He’s made numerous TV & radio appearances, including with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Megyn Kelly, Alex Jones, Greta Van Sustern and Neil Cavuto and has been featured in National Review Online, the Weekly Standard and the Wall Street Journal.
Guillory is now president of Elbert Guillory’s America PAC. When not busy trying to rescue fellow black citizens from the “liberal plantation,” Guillory is an avid mountain climber – including scaling his namesake, Mount Elbert, in the Colorado Rockies.
Over the past 40 years, Dennis Hof has been a successful Nevada businessman, owner of seven legal brothels, an entrepreneur, restaurateur, author, philanthropist, Oxford University lecturer and star of the award-winning “Cathouse” reality TV series on HBO.
An often controversial straight-shooter, Hof is a much sought-after media personality. He’s appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows, including the Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, Diane Sawyer, 20-20, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, Access Hollywood, The O’Reilly Factor, The Tyra Banks Show, The Howard Stern Show, The Adam Carolla Show, Lex & Terry, The Opie & Anthony Show and Dr. Phil.
He’s been interviewed on FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS and was the subject of an 11-page feature article by award-winning journalist Rebecca Mead in New Yorker magazine.
Hof is an independent-minded “conservatarian” who ran for the Nevada State Assembly in 2016 and almost ousted the RINO (Republican in Name Only) incumbent. He is considering a re-match in 2018.
Adam Laxalt, a fourth-generation native Nevadan, is Nevada’s current Attorney General who is expected to be a Republican candidate for governor in 2018. He’s pro-life, pro-gun, pro-school choice and anti-tax.
Adam’s a former Lieutenant in the United States Navy where he served as a Judge Advocate General and volunteered to serve in a combat zone in Iraq. For his service, Adam was awarded the Joint Service Commendation Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal.
Adam also taught at the U.S. Naval Academy and served as a Special Advisor to John Bolton, the Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security.
As attorney general, Laxalt led the successful legal fight to defend Education Savings Accounts at the Nevada Supreme Court and established the Office of Military Legal Assistance which provides free legal services for active duty men and women.
Wayne Allyn Root
Las Vegas’ own Wayne Allyn Root (aka WAR) is a fiery, passionate, dynamic, outspoken and like President Trump – a combative, unapologetic, in-your-face conservative, nationalist and populist. He has been branded by media across the globe as “the conservative warrior” and “capitalist evangelist.”
The former 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee is also a nationally syndicated radio and TV host. “WAR Now: The Wayne Allyn Root Show” airs on the USA Radio Network daily from 3 PM to 6 PM PT and his new national TV show of the same name airs nightly to almost 40 million homes on Newsmax TV at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT.
You can watch the program on Channel 349 on DirecTV or online at: http://www.newsmaxtv.com/Shows/The-Wayne-Allyn-Root-Show
Wayne has enjoyed great success in many diverse fields. He was the opening speaker at many Trump events and appears regularly in the national media – including FOX News. His commentaries on national politics are featured in the Las Vegas Review Journal, the 16th largest newspaper in America. He’s also the author of 11 books – including “Angry White Male” – which predicted the Trump phenomenon and presidential victory.
Barbara Cegavske is Nevada’s elected Secretary of State. She’s a businesswoman and entrepreneur who previously served in the Nevada State Assembly and Nevada State Senate where she earned a solid conservative voting record.
During her time in the Nevada Legislature, Cegavske assumed leadership roles as Co-Assembly Assistant Minority Floor Leader, Assistant Assembly Minority Whip, Senate Minority Whip, and Senate Assistant Minority Leader.
She also chaired the Senate Committee on Legislative Operations and Elections for three legislative sessions and was vice-chair of the Senate Committees on Human Resources and Education; Human Resources and Facilities; and Legislative Affairs and Operations.
Under Barbara’s leadership, the Nevada Secretary of State’s office has been aggressively pursuing voter fraud – including a high-profile arrest earlier this year with additional active investigations still ongoing. She supports strong voter ID laws while opposing “same day” registration.
Roger Stone has been a controversial fixture in American politics dating back to before the Nixon era. He is veteran GOP strategist who is reviled by the Left as a “political dirty trickster” for his raw, brass-knuckled “Stone’s Rules” approach to campaigning and is the subject of a 2017 Netflix documentary titled, “Get Me Roger Stone.”
He is described as a libertarian-leaning conservative who solidified his philosophical beliefs after reading Barry Goldwater’s “Conscience of a Conservative” as a teenager. He’s a former national chairman of the Young Republicans and has been a key adviser to GOP candidates up and down the ballot for over 50 years.
Stone is widely credited for first inspiring Donald Trump to run for president and is a key figure in the Left’s ongoing “Russia hacking” campaign to undermine the Trump presidency. He is a regular guest on cable talk shows and podcasts, has written five (and counting) books, and is known these days as an ardent social media political warrior.
Stone has also been described as the “smartest dresser” in Washington and bears a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back between his shoulder blades.

More to Come…
SPECIAL BONUS #1: COMMUNICATIONS WORKSHOP
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 9:00 A.M.
It’s not enough to just drain the swamp. Conservatives need to know how to TALK about draining the swamp and EXPLAIN to the public and media why it’s so critical if we’re ever going to make America great again.
The Leadership Institute has been training conservative candidates and grassroots activists for almost 40 years now, including CLC co-hosts Grover Norquist & Chuck Muth.
Effective communications is the key to victory, whether in a political campaign or issue debate. In this 2.5-hour LI training workshop led by Robert Arnakis, you’ll discover…
Part 1: How voters judge and choose candidates
Part 2: How to develop a successful communications strategy
Part 3: How to develop winning television & radio commercials, mail & digital advertising
Part 4: How to avoid campaign crises, rapid response and crisis management
SPECIAL BONUS #2: WELCOMING RECEPTION / BOOK-SIGNING / SELFIE-SHOOT
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 5:00 P.M.
When we did this a few years ago at the CLC at the M Resort it was a YUGE hit. So we’re bringing it back!
Many of our speakers are authors of books, and others have promotional items – CDs, DVDs, shirts, etc.
So on Friday afternoon, immediately after the General Session, we’re gonna host a group Cocktail Reception, Book-Signing & Selfie-Shoot where you’ll be able to rub shoulders and speak with many of our fantastic speakers one-on-one…and even take a “selfie” with them!
If you have a book you want signed…bring it. Although some speakers will have their books available for sale at the reception.
No book…no problem. Many of our attendees will get as many speakers as possible to autograph their Official CLC ’17 Souvenir Program!
HERE’S HOW TO UPGRADE TO VIP STATUS!
For a nominal additional charge, you can upgrade from a General Admission Pass to a VIP Elite Pass, including these terrific benefits…
Early Admission/Prime Seating
Ticket to the Conservative Awards Reception & Dinner
VIP Pass holders will receive a special “Welcome & Thank You” gift bag stuffed with special surprises and goodies to make your experience even that much more special and memorable.
YOU WILL NOT FEEL ALONE!
Even if you’ve never attended an event like this before and are a little leery about showing up with a bunch of strangers – trust me, you won’t feel alone very long!
You’ll immediately realize you’re among friends and fellow “swamp drainers” – even if you don’t know a soul when you first walk in the room…
- “I found it so refreshing to be in the company of so many like-minded people.” – Christina Conte
- “CLC is the perfect opportunity to hang out with others conservatives, especially if you usually spend your days at work surrounded by liberals!” – Nick Citino
- “If you’ve never been, go! It’s worth it.” – Dwight Mazzone
You’ll meet new people. Make new friends. Establish new relationships. Heck, you might even meet your future spouse (it’s happened before!).
There’s never been a conference quite like this…and probably never will again.
SEATING IS STRICTLY LIMITED!
Back in Swampland, DC these sorts of conferences – with this kind of line-up of high-powered conservative speakers – are a dime a dozen, often packing the conference room with thousands of attendees.
Which means the odds of having any kind of one-on-one experience with them are high enough that even a Las Vegas sports book wouldn’t take the bet!
So in order to make CLC ‘17 a far more personal and intimate experience – where you’ll have plenty of chances to actually talk with many of these amazing conservative speakers, as well as get your photo with them – I’m again limiting General Admission attendance to the first 150 people who register.
That’s it. 150. Max.
Which means you’ll have leg room between rows of seats rather than being jammed in like on an airplane!
Which also means we’ll certainly sell out again this year.
So if you’re tempted to wait to register, I can only warn you there’s a good chance you’ll miss out on this golden opportunity.
And because I know how people love to procrastinate about these sorts of events (which drives organizers like me nuts!), let me sweeten the pot with a limited “Early Bird” offer you’d be insane to pass up…
EARLY BIRD 2-FOR-1 SPECIAL!
The regular investment for a General Admission Pass to this year’s Conservative Leadership Conference is just $149. And to give you an idea of just what a great value that price is, consider the fact that…
- The cost to attend this year’s Conservative Summit in Colorado is $200/ticket
- The cost to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in “The Swamp” this year was $300/ticket
- The cost to attend this year’s Freedom Fest in Las Vegas was $595/ticket
So at this price, this is already a heckuva deal! However…
- Because I’d rather spend my time over the summer perfecting a GREAT conference experience for you rather than worrying about selling tickets…
- And because I know you might want to bring a friend or family member who won’t otherwise pay the registration fee…
- And because I know you might not be able to take a day off from work unless you bring your boss with you…
- And because I know some folks who have never attended an event like this before will feel more comfortable if they come with someone else…
If you register online before August 31, 2017…
The registration investment will be just…$99!
Register before the Early Bird deadline and you may bring one additional person of your choosing ABSOLUTELY FREE!
Yes, you can even bring a (well-behaved) child or teen so you won’t have to worry about finding a babysitter.
Just add the name of your guest where asked on the Checkout page when you Register. If you don’t know who you wish to bring yet, just type in “TBD” in the “Name” box (meaning, “to be determined).
And yes, the Early Bird 2-for-1 special applies to VIP tickets, too!
Instead of paying the full price of $299 for a VIP Pass, if you register online before August 31, 2017 you’ll pay just $249…and your guest can join you…FREE!
That’s less than $125 per person for 2 VIP passes…for a total savings of $349!
There are only 50 ELITE VIP passes available!
