Nine Line Apparel's goal is to bridge the gap between civilians and service members, whether they are military veterans, law enforcement, or first responders. Because we share the same goals, we're proud to partner with Matt, Chris X and Ron from The Conservative Cartel. Here at Nine Line, we know that only united can the American people fight injustice and preserve our freedom and independence.

I’m not only a talk radio host. I’m also a fan of the medium. I know what it’s like to have a vision of what I want my legacy to be. And I know what it’s like to fight for that vision and have someone take a chance and dare to see that vision too.  It is my sincere hope that you will be bold and invest in the vision that the Conservative Cartel brings to conservative talk radio. I’m sure you won’t regret it.

We have known and worked with Matt Locke and Chris X long before they joined forces to become “The Conservative Cartel”. Individually, they were great… Together, they are magical! Matt Locke and Chris X are the “real deal". They are true American Patriots who have the “street cred” to back up every word they speak. The combination of co-hosts Matt Locke and Chris X, coupled with Ron Phillips as their executive producer, deliver exceptional talk radio to the listener with unquestionable integrity. The mainstream media has completely failed the American people…The Conservative Cartel will NEVER fail you. We consider The Conservative Cartel “appointment radio”.

[The Conservative Cartel] does a great job of letting their passion show with their words. The listener can feel their emotion through the radio. They are well prepared and are very eager to learn.[The Conservative Cartel] is hungry for feedback, responds with gratitude, implements the changes quickly, and are very effective talk show hosts that relate to their audience.

[The Conservative Cartel] has been met with terrific, positive response from our listeners and garner, by far, the most amount of social media response on our Twitter account.  In late December of 2016, we added Matt's and Chris X's program, "The Conservative Cartel" to the Sunday evening line-up on both 95.3 MNC and 1190 WOWO and it is under strong consideration for a position on 50,000 watt WOWO.

The Conservative Cartel show is exceedingly one of the most profoundly provocative shows I have ever had the privilege to listen to Matt and Chris X, the torches of even the most seasoned of teams . Both have the ability to temper justice with mercy, and an uncanny ability to sew humor into the show's tapestry. And all this with General Ron Phillips at the helm . May The Lord Jesus Bless and guide these warriors as they do battle with evil wherever it is found.



LOVE The Conservative Cartel!!!  Matt & Gavin speak the truth. I plan Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s around the show!  I love both studios, the side by side view and the “extra” segments on FB Live. I like that you keep up with feeds and make us part of the show. It is because of you guys that I have become more into politics. I like that you break stuff down and make it easier to understand and throw in a little common sense. I appreciate that you uphold and promote our Christian morals & values. I really appreciate everything that you guys do! You go above and beyond to give us a great show!! Thank you is simply not enough!

Hello gentleman, as you know I'm one of your loyal callers Richard from New York. I just wanted to say you are a pair of great patriots of this country. Let me tell you a little bit about me, I was a first responder during 911 and hurricane Sandy.I worked for DSNY Rapid response division at the time when America was attacked, I was forced to retire because of an injury I suffered during hurricane Sandy. That almost killed me. Two surgeries later and years of rehab and now I'm  back on my feet. I stepped on a power line under water that shocked me and threw me over 10 feet up in the air. This is why I love this country so much and I am out spoken when I call your show. Seeing people jump out of the Twin Towers and picking body parts up in a bucket, it hurts just to mention it. Thank you guys for your service on the air, it really means a lot to me, to be able to speak my mind. God bless you and the United States of America. I know you two are truly here for the right reasons!

Writing just a few sentences is not near enough of an explanation of why The Conservative Cartel is such a great show. You've got 3 down to earth, real American Patriots behind the microphones and controls. Everyone is treated with such decency as a caller or Facebook Live follower. The subject matter is always the most current events, talked about with homework done on the facts to back up subject. Having the show on 3 nights a week is incredible, so enough time can be spent on subjects, though most of us listeners would love 7! The interaction with the listeners is such that it makes you feel like you are part of a family. I've met people all over our great country, and world, because of this show and I converse with many of the listeners on a daily basis through social media. This is the show that needs to replace all shows on CNN!



I want to thank you for your show, The Conservative Cartel.  Your studios are outstanding!  I love the side by side view that we are now blessed to enjoy. But more than that, thank you for presenting us the news.  Thank you for allowing us on FB Live to converse with each other and with you.  Thank you that you are always kind and not like some of the other talk show hosts that I have seen actually belittle their viewers and/or callers.  Even if you disagree with a viewpoint, you do not make the person with whom you are disagreeing feel like their views do not matter.  Thank you for taking the time to listen.  Thank you for standing for the Bible and the Constitution. Anyway, thanks for what you do.  Wishing you continued blessings from our Heavenly Father as you continue your show and help bring awareness to the world around us.
