CPAC’s Jan. 6 Exhibit Becomes the Central Attraction Over the Weekend

An exhibit took place the past weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Texas, and one performance art stood out among the arrangements.

The art

The conversation on the show involved a mock dungeon with a barefoot artist in orange robes.

The artist also wore an easily recognizable red hat with “Make America Great Again” printed in white.

During the exhibition, the speakers were distributed to the general public. Recordings of the moving testimonies of the accused of the January 6 riots were then reproduced.


Michael Leuffone, director of the School of Education at St. Mary’s University in Minnesota, saw the exhibit and described it as “compelling.”

“It’s stunning, really,” Lovren said.

Freelance journalist Laura Jeeded attended the party on Friday to take over the MAGA booth. He called it “the most astonishing thing.”

Nied also said it was like a silent disco, but “instead of dancing, just stand there and watch this man cry.”

“What I need you to understand is that I stood here for about half an hour yesterday and this guy NEVER broke character,” Jeeded tweeted.

“He wept sitting on the bench. He wept sitting on the floor. He tallied on a chalkboard set up for the [sic] purpise.”

While the show’s theatrical rush sparked online ridicule, attendees reacted differently to the CPAC.

“The crowd was somber as they studied the man in the cage and listened to the audio of people arrested for Jan. 6-related crimes on the headset,” revealed Jeeded.

“No one else seemed to find it particularly funny.”

The concept

The artwork is believed to have been designed to appeal to those who believe that those involved in the January 6 riots should not be jailed for attacking the Capitol.

Despite a Justice Department investigation and committee hearing on Jan.6, many Trump supporters still believe the Mafia has done nothing wrong.

The artist

Behind the cell was Brandon Straka, a former New York hairdresser turned pro-Trump activist.

Straka is also the founder of the non-profit organization Walk Away, an organization that encourages people to leave the Democratic Party.

Earlier this year, Straka was sentenced to three years in prison after admitting to being a member of a pro-Trump gang and encouraging attacks on the Capitol.

He underwent lengthy court oversight, but Judge Dabney Friedrich ruled that a three-year probationary period was necessary.

The judge also ordered him to be under house arrest for three months and to pay a $ 5,000 fine.

Despite his conviction, Brandon Straka has been described as a “snitch” and a “traitor” for his association with the FBI.

Straka provided vital information on pro-Trump “Stop the Steal” organizers Ali Alexander, Amy, Kylie Kramer and Cindy Chafian.

He also helped the FBI identify potential suspects who weren’t under their radar.

Meaning of Mine, Camaryn and Elle Swanson’s Lifestyle and Fashion Company, Aims to Empower Women

Numerous businesses have boomed after keeping a careful eye on the market and following the recent trends. Providing products and services that align with what is popular usually results in increased profit and more visibility as a brand. However, with the ever-changing dynamic of the commercial space, it is not sustainable to always be one step behind, letting it provide directives on what a venture should do next. Enterprises stand out and thrive in such a competitive field when they take the lead and introduce offerings that will start a trend themselves. This approach to doing business lies at the core of the Meaning of Mine, a lifestyle and fashion company established by Camaryn Swanson and Elle Swanson.

Power duo Camaryn and Elle are sisters, influencers, and fashion designers. At the age of twenty-one and eighteen, respectively, they have shown the potential of becoming colossal household names in the future. Hailing from the multicultural, fast-paced Miami Beach, they have always wanted to inspire girls to be the best versions of themselves and feel good in their own skin amidst society’s beauty standards and conventions. 

These two creatives, raised in an entrepreneurially-oriented family, learned a solid work ethic from an early age. And for them, the emphasis should be placed not only on the quality of one’s brand but also the message that a venture wants to send across to its intended audience. 

On a mission to empower women, Camaryn and Elle Swanson created the Meaning of Mine, which consists of several lines. Under the umbrella of this recognized brand are Mine Swim, Mine Sweats, and Mine Active, all of which utilize the best quality fabrics and rely on top of the line factories to carry out their production. 

Since its establishment, the Meaning of Mine has stood out for offering designs that are breaking barriers and introducing the newest trends. This rise to the top of the industry was made possible because Camaryn and Elle Swanson intimately know their customers. As lifestyle specialists, they are able to foresee what can tickle the fancy of the market as well as which products can attract and retain loyal customers. 

Through its online shop, the Meaning of Mine delivers pieces that are crafted to foster confidence, comfort, power, and beauty in their wearers. Currently, it boasts an inventory of must-have items. Some of its signature offerings — and what the brand is immensely known for — is its string bikinis that hold women up in all the right places, sweats that are immensely comfortable to wear, and the newly introduced activewear designed to make people feel the urge to work out and get things done all day long. 

As a 100% women-owned and operated brand, the Meaning of Mine stands in solidarity with women worldwide. And its founders Camaryn and Elle Swanson, have consistently demonstrated passion not only for women empowerment but also for charity events, environmental protection, and sustainability. They have recently shifted to eco-friendly fabrics, joining the sustainable fashion world and promoting efforts for a greener industry. Additionally, these two impressive entrepreneurs have used their platform and created a blog on their website that connects young women, engaging them with topics on health, lifestyle, fashion, relationships, and more. 

Years from now, Camaryn and Elle Swanson look forward not only to share their love for fashion and fitness but also to expand the Meaning of Mine to a world-renowned lifestyle brand.

The GO-GETTER Co. Lifestyle: Combining Style and Innovative Technology

No other rising company in the country today has successfully combined fashion and an innovative technology to create a lifestyle that is suited for go-getters – confident, enterprising, and achievers. This is what GO-GETTER Co. offers the modern-day millennials and those who thrive in a fast-paced life with its trackable wallets that are sophisticated-looking, easy to carry around, practical, and highly functional. 

GO-GETTER Co. was recently launched by its founder Mikiah Z. Azarcon, who spent countless hours perfecting the trackable wallet technology and design. The budding entrepreneur and Pepperdine University graduate intends to provide consumers with the option to let go of bulky fashion wallets that take so much space. The company’s trackable wallet’s design is uniquely developed to make life a lot easier for on-the-go users who thrive on mobility and hustling. 

“Empowered by the people through Kickstarter crowdfunding, our wallets set us apart by bringing you a trackable, expandable, RFID-secure, slim wallet with the thinnest tracker card EVER and stunning modern design. We are inspired by the dream-chasers, hustlers, innovators, and all those on a path to create a lifestyle for themselves: the go-getters. Designing with our inspirations lifestyle in mind, our mission is to engineer and innovate useful products by fusing style and function in everything we create,” says the 22-year-old GO-GETTER Co. founder. 

Back in 2018 when GO-GETTER Co. was in the ideation stage, Mikiah Z. Azarcon laboured to juggle his time for school and working four jobs in order to raise funds to be able to raise a sufficient amount of capital to have prototypes developed. Back then, he decided to prepare a showcase to the Kickstarter community, hoping to get enough funding to further develop his idea. Two years later, after a sufficient amount of prototypes, Azarcon finally launched his GO Wallet on July 21, 2020. Interestingly, the product made $90k in sales in its first month.

GO-GETTER Co.’s wallet solves six common problems that include losing a wallet, having a bulky and inconvenient wallet, wallets wearing out over time, getting hacked through modern RFID-skimming and theft, not being able to fit your personal items, and outdated designs. The GO Wallet comes with a Bluetooth tracker card, known to be the thinnest in the world today. This extremely innovative feature allows the users to track their wallets whenever it goes out of range, get notified when the wallet gets separated from them, and ring it when it is within range but out of sight. 

By introducing his company to the world, Mikiah Z. Azarcon hopes to inspire other people with his challenging journey that resulted in the launching of GO-GETTER Co. He wishes to emphasize the importance of maintaining a positive attitude when pursuing a dream, persevering even when times get tough, never giving up even when others lose their faith, and working even harder once the dream is fulfilled. Azarcon sees his company transforming into a multi-million dollar business in the next five years with an international market proudly using his product. He also envisions adding marketers, content creators, influencers, and customer service providers to his team as he prepares to take the company to the next level.
