Breitbart's Ben Shapiro Replaces Karl Rove as CA GOP Convention Keynote

Feb 17, 2013 7:11 AM PT

Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro will give a keynote address at the California Republican Party convention this March, taking the spot previously scheduled for Karl Rove. 

According to the Sacramento Bee, "Rove's talk has been moved to the Saturday luncheon because of a scheduling conflict," and the CA Republican Party "had been seeking to book a speaker who would appeal to conservatives in light of a rift caused by Rove's newly announced Conservative Victory Project."

EXCLUSIVE: 'Bullies' Excerpt: How The Left Crucified George Zimmerman

Feb 1, 2013 11:04 AM PT

On March 23, 2012, President Obama announced that Americans had to do some “soul searching.” The reason? A seventeen-year-old young man named Trayvon Martin had been shot and killed in Sanford, Florida.

Now, what separated young Trayvon from all of his teenage peers shot across the country? What made him special, worthy of presidential comment? Was he an honor student? Was he a potential president of a Fortune 500 company? Was he on the fast track to curing cancer?

Politico: Piers Morgan Triumphs in Gun Control Debate, Ben Shapiro Who?

Jan 17, 2013 6:17 PM PT

Politico, ever eager to suppress conservative victories and trumpet progressives who alienate the general public, has written an extensive article extolling the praises of Piers Morgan as “an outspoken advocate of gun control.” 

Politico notes Morgan’s interview with the out-of-control Alex Jones and that giant intellectual Charlie Sheen, but somehow never mentions the drubbing Morgan received from Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro that went so viral Dutch newspapers even reported it.

Shapiro's 'Bullies' Undergoes Amazon Review War

Jan 15, 2013 11:31 PM PT

Anyone who purchases books on has noticed that the minute a conservative book gains notoriety, a pack of left-wing trolls who have never read a page of it descend on the book's site and give it the lowest rating possible, along with predictably negative reviews.

Case in point, the treatment of the recently released Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans, the top Amazon seller written by Breitbart Editor-at-large Ben Shapiro. As many conservatives and liberals know, Ben demolished well-known left-wing bully Piers Morgan in a one-on-one debate on CNN last week.

Why I Brought Piers Morgan That 'Little Book'

Jan 11, 2013 5:20 PM PT

When I appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight to debate gun control on Thursday night, I came armed with a copy of the Constitution of the United States. 

I did so for a very simple reason: for too long, the left has been getting away with the lie that they are pro-Second Amendment. Then they proceed to violate the most basic concept of the Second Amendment: that we have a right to keep and bear arms. It is fine to have a rational conversation about how to balance rights with the risk and rewards of particular firearm ownership. But that is not what the left does. They loudly proclaim support for the right to bear arms but then ask, “Why should you be allowed to keep an AR-15 in your home?”

Shapiro's Performance on CNN Marks Turning Point in Gun Debate

Jan 11, 2013 10:04 AM PT

Ben Shapiro’s confident, fact-packed demolition of CNN’s Piers Morgan last night marks the turning point in the gun control debate. Ben showed that when they cannot exploit the deaths of children, gun control advocates are forced to defend their views, which are based on faulty premises. That timely reminder has given new energy and enthusiasm to defenders of the Second Amendment, who are preparing for the mother of all battles.

The Obama administration is using recent mass shootings--with the exception of Fort Hood, of course, which it does not want to acknowledge as an Islamist terror attack--to press a gun control agenda many decades in the making. They have not yet suggested a single policy proposal that would have prevented the horrific killings at Sandy Hook, and the task force chaired by Vice President Joe Biden is not likely to do so, either.

Ben Shapiro Shows the Right How to Beat the Media

Jan 11, 2013 7:30 AM PT

Forgive me for choosing a colleague and friend, but I've been waiting for exactly this kind of media appearance from someone -- anyone! -- on our side to make this point with, and it just so happens that last night it was Breitbart editor-at-large Ben Shapiro who delivered as perfect an example as one could ever hope for. This is a must-watch for the rest of this column to make any sense whatsoever.

As one of our Founding Fathers once said, "Facts are stubborn things," and when faced with facts, calm logic, and someone fully prepared for the encounter, after a fifteen minute appearance last night with our own Ben Shapiro, CNN's Morton Downey Jr. Piers Morgan was left gasping for air. This was Morgan's worst nightmare realized and, for a whole host of reasons, something we need to see happen more often all across the media landscape.
