It’s Launched!
What to know: TPPF has officially launched The Cannon Online, our new website for commentary and research.
“Increasingly over the last four years, conservative ideas have been held captive by leftist legacy media,” says TPPF’s Kevin Roberts. “Editors wielded their power to prevent the dissemination of our ideas and policy positions to their readers. No more. Our ideas are too important to wait on the space and sympathy of legacy news outlets. The Cannon Online is our answer with the intent of amplifying conservative writers and ideas to keep Texas Texas and America the most free and prosperous nation in the history of the world.”
