Washington, D.C. – Today, former Ambassador John Bolton addressed an excited crowd of conservative activists at CPAC 2014 – a celebration of 50 years of the ACU and America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists.

A leading foreign policy expert, Bolton said, “The biggest threat to our national security is Barack Obama.The Democrat Party no longer has a national security plan...ignoring threats to our national security is the Obama Doctrine."

He reviewed the various threats around our globe, including nuclear proliferation in Iran and North Korea. "We're not going to get peace through weakness,” he said, in regards to the Russia situation.

He encouraged the audience to remember the conservative policies and victories of Ronald Reagan.
