  • The Dawn of the American Reawakening

    Rep. McClintock gave the following speech to the How to Take Back America Conference in St. Louis hosted by the Eagle Forum on September 26, 2009. A funny thing happened this summer on the Road to Serfdom. The American people decided we don’t want to go! We are watching something unfold across the country that is quite remarkable. We are watching Americans do what Americans have always done whenever we have sensed that our country or our freedom is in danger. Ever since the days of the Boston Tea Party, in times of crisis, we have set aside our personal...

    Obama's Stimulus by Phyllis Schlafly, February 27, 2009 Under the subterfuge of helping the economy, Barack Obama's stimulus plan legislates vast new spending programs to finance liberal policy goals that are unnecessary and undesirable. The flow of taxpayers' money will be so gargantuan as to make Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society expansion of the welfare state look puny. Barack Obama revealed his long-term goals in a radio interview on Chicago's WBEZ-FM in 2001. Asked about the Earl Warren court decisions that started long lines of activist decisions in many areas, Obama argued that the Warren court didn't go far enough:...

    Dear Friends Orlean Koehle, California Eagle Forum President reports that on Tuesday Phyllis (85 years young) was speaking at UC Berkeley. As she was coming off the podium after giving a brilliant speech to about 150 students and adults in attendance (crowded into a room that only was meant to hold 70), she missed a step and fell and broke her hip. The college Republicans wanted her to join them for pictures afterwards out in the hall. Phyllis did not see the edge of the podium, which was hard to see, missed the step and fell on her right hip....

    UPDATE: On January 15th, 2009, the Senate voted on the motion to proceed to S. 181, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009. The motion passed by a vote of 74 to 23 (Roll Call 4). This means that the Senate may begin debate on S. 181 at any time. The Majority promised Republicans that amendments would be allowed. Eagle Forum is urging Senators to reject S. 181 and instead support Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's alternative bill, S. 166. We will keep you updated as things develop. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) filed cloture on the motion to...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Republicans at their convention here are blaming the lefty media for the political travails Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin may face. After John McCain surprised everyone by tapping her to be his running mate on Saturday, Palin's been kept sequestered someplace here as news outlets raise questions about whether Palin has been properly vetted, if McCain knew her unwed teen daughter was pregnant before he picked her or if McCain's most important decision as a presidential candidate was somehow botched. I had not seen Phyllis Schlafly for years, and when I ran into the president of the...
  • Congress Set to Import More Foreign Workers: H-1B Visas

    Now that big corporate lobbyists know they can't get amnesty for the millions of cheap laborers they have imported illegally, they are pushing to increase the number of so-called high-skilled workers by raising the cap of H-1B visas. The pressure is on the House of Representatives to pass an increase soon, most likely in the form of the SKIL Act (H.R. 1930), sponsored by Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ), usually a conservative ally. There are three reasons why Big Business wants to increase foreign workers: * H-1Bers are paid much less than Americans * The influx of H-1Bers depresses the "prevailing...

    Two events directed at opposite ends of the illegal immigration debate take place this weekend in Sonoma County. Organizers say at least 3,000 people are expected to march Sunday through downtown Santa Rosa in a pro-immigration rally organized by the local field office of the United Farm Workers. Casimiro Alvarez, UFW regional director, said the rally and march come after a long period of relative silence from the local Latino immigrant community. He said the goal of the march is three-fold. “First, we want to honor the memory of Cesar Chavez and celebrate his life and work,” Alvarez said. “Second,...

    Twelve audience members staged a silent walkout yesterday afternoon in the Agassiz Theatre to protest a conservative icon who has, in the past, downplayed the importance of domestic abuse. The demonstration occurred at a speech by Phyllis Schlafly, the woman credited with defeating the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 1970s. Twenty minutes into the lecture on “The Culture War in the Courts,” as Schlafly criticized judges who upheld the right of public school to require programs emphasizing tolerance for homosexuals, the protesters stood up and silently left the room. “It’s important to listen to viewpoints, but there’s a line,”...
  • Poll: Public Wants Illegals to Go Home

    Eagle Forum ^ | May 22 | Staff
    WASHINGTON - New polling shows a strong preference for enforcing U.S. Immigration laws that cause illegal aliens to go home. Advocacy groups and even some media outlets have released surveys showing support for legalizing illegals. However, those polls often gave voters a very limited choice between large-scale deportations or "earned legalization," or simply asked about conditional legalization without any alternative. When given the across-the-board enforcement option, with the goal of causing illegals to go home, the public strongly favors the enforcement approach over legalization with conditions. Contrary to the new Senate bill, most Americans want less and not more immigration....

    Business Week Concedes Globalism Is A Problem by Phyllis Schlafly, December 13, 2006 Economists, academicians and financial consultants for years have been preaching that globalism is the wave of the future and that anyone who wants to survive in business must ride its surfboard or drown. All of a sudden, Business Week is having second thoughts. This voice of business now says that the United States is no longer the captain of our fate because "globalization has overwhelmed Washington's ability to control the economy." As recently as ten years ago, the United States could set its course for economic...

    The best postmortem on the 2006 election came from that perennial politician, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA). He said, "People want to know who's on their side. Whether it's health care or wages or retirement issues, they want to have someone on their side." The biggest electoral bloc of the "they" who are seeking friends is the middle class, which includes people variously labeled blue-collar workers, skilled workers, or Reagan Democrats. They are the swing voters, often called the moveables. President Ronald Reagan's victories absolutely depended on their support. But Presidents Bush I and II kicked them away from the Republican...

    Border security doesn't seem to matter to politicians, there is a move afoot to create a North American Union where the United States, Canada and Mexico would essentially be one market with a single currency -- the "Amero," a top Texas Eagle Forum official said Tuesday.

    Public schools are spending so much time on gay rights issues that about the only way left for reformers to bring Algebra back to classrooms would be to set up algebraic word problems involving cast members of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. “Just this week, police arrested a middle-school drama teacher in Waltham, Massachusetts for allegedly staging an elaborate production designed to molest male teens by offering them massages from prostitutes, then blindfolding them, donning a wig, and pretending to be the female masseuse,” author Dan Flynn notes on his web site. “On August 10, police arrested another middle-school...

    At Accuracy in Academia’s Immigration Forum on Capitol Hill, Jessica Echard of Eagle Forum discussed guest worker programs. “Everyone has tried to distance themselves from the word amnesty,” she explained. Amnesty would give illegal aliens in the United States immunity from U. S. immigration laws they are currently violating. The bill that passed the Senate would allow guest workers into the United States to work free of immigration restrictions that would otherwise be in place, supposedly for finite periods of time. Echard gave the audience questions and “aspects we need to look at” when it comes to the different guest...

    Although educators usually like to slam GOP officeholders for “draconian budget cuts,” at least one Indiana Republican serving in the U. S. Congress indicates that their anger may be misplaced, if not unwarranted. “More government is now the accepted Republican belief,” Rep. Mike Pence said at the Eagle Forum Summit on June 8th. He then declared, “The era of Big Government Republican is over.” Rep. Pence opened his talk by using the analogy that he used at the 2004 Conservative Political Action Conference. He compared the Republican Party to a boat that is sailing on course. In the past two...

    Like many teenagers, President George W. Bush dashed off to Cancun for spring break. Protected by a long and impenetrable fence and plenty of security guards, he met privately with the Mexican president and wealthy chief executive officers from both countries. Bush should have gone to the Arizona border where U.S. citizens really need a fence to protect themselves, their children, their animals and their property from the hundreds of illegal immigrants who tramp across their land every night. Bush thus gave the back of his hand to the 88 percent of Republican House Members who voted to secure our...

    Well, it's become quite apparent that U.S. Senator Ken Salazar (D-CO) is quickly making a name for himself among the ranks of the slandering, sensationalizing far left. Since I live in Colorado, covered the primaries and election that put Salazar into office, and know some of the principals personally, I thought my take might shed some light onto the underpinnings of this bizarre phenomenon. First, on April 25, 2005, Senator Ken Salazar (affectionately known as "Gollum" by Colorado conservatives) commented that Focus on the Family (FOTF), the organization founded by Dr. James Dobson, has relentlessly and unfairly attacked him.

    One impressive vote last November second has been overlooked by the media. By 85 to 15 percent, a ballot initiative in Massachusetts approved equal legal and physical custody of children whose parents are divorced. That ballot initiative is nonbinding, but it certainly is indicative of the will of the people and the growing recognition that children are best off under the care of both parents. The initiative came out of the grassroots with a massive signature-gathering effort during the summer. The proposition appeared on the ballot as follows: "Shall the State Representative from this district be instructed to vote in...

    The Democrats are trying to make a campaign issue out of George W. Bush's alleged plan to "privatize" Social Security, scaring seniors into thinking their checks will be cut off. That is a phony issue; all Bush suggests is to offer younger workers the option (not the compulsion) of transferring a very small part of their Social Security benefit into private investments. The real threat to Social Security doesn't come from giving young people this opportunity. The threat comes from the Bush Administration's plan to load illegal aliens into the Social Security system, an idea that would skyrocket costs and...

    Do you ever wonder why the internet is so polluted with pornography? The Supreme Court just reminded us why: it blocks every attempt by Congress to regulate the pornographers. From its ivory tower, the Court props open the floodgates for smut and graphic sex. Over the past five years, it has repeatedly found new constitutional rights for vulgarity, most recently invalidating the Child Online Protection Act (COPA). This latest judicial outrage happened on the final day of the Supreme Court term, after which the justices headed out for a long summer break. Lacking teenaged children of their own, the justices...

    <p>Tim Bueler, like many cocksure 17-year-olds, is strident in expressing his political beliefs.</p> <p>And to him, the Republican Party leans too far to the left.</p> <p>That was the spark that launched his Conservative Club at Rancho Cotate High School in the Sonoma County town of Rohnert Park and ignited two months of rhetorical ugliness on campus. It also put him on the conservative talk show circuit, including an appearance Thursday on Fox television's "The O'Reilly Factor."</p>

VEGA THE PRESS DEMOCRAT Amanda Clarke, a bubbly 17-year-old who wears a heart-shaped stars-and-stripes pin on her Rancho Cotate High sweat shirt, giggles with one of her best friends about how they used to pass notes to each other in P.E. class. Oscar Gutierrez, a fellow junior who sports a sweat shirt with the colors of the Mexican flag emblazoned on the back, jokes about how he was always a soccer fan before Amanda introduced him to hockey. Lately, the pair hasn't had a lot to laugh about. She...

  • Marriage Must Be Protected From The Judges

    President Bush has proclaimed the week of October 12-18 as Marriage Protection Week because it's becoming clearer all the time that the institution of marriage needs protection against battering by the courts. The gay lobbyists have made it clear that their aim is to litigate to get activist judges to accord the status of marriage to same-sex relationships. A public not well informed about the U.S. Constitution, an acquiescent bar, and spineless Members of Congress have for years allowed activist judges to expand their powers at the expense of our elected representatives and in violation of the separation of powers....

  • Bush supports traditional marriage definition in issuing Marriage Protection proclamation

    BP News ^ | 10/6/03
    President Bush has proclaimed Oct. 12-18 as Marriage Protection Week, calling the institution's preservation "essential to the continued strength of our society." The president issued the proclamation Oct. 3, one day after a coalition of 25 evangelical Christian and conservative organizations announced a campaign to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The effort, campaign leaders said, will begin with Marriage Protection Week and will work toward passage of a constitutional amendment to preserve the biblical and traditional definition of the institution. The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and other organizations formed the coalition...
  • McNeely Says Tactics May Backfire on TX Amendment 12: (AARP, Eagle Forum Oppose It)

    Austin, TX, American-Statesman ^ | 09-04-03 | McNeely, Dave
    Tactics may backfire on amendment Thursday, September 4, 2003 Texas voters are being hit with mail and television ads for or against Proposition 12, a proposed amendment to the Texas constitution. If it passes Sept. 13, it would allow the Legislature to place limits on noneconomic damages in lawsuits. It also would clear the way for limits in medical malpractice lawsuits that lawmakers have already passed. The fact that the proposed amendment and 21 others will face voters on the second Saturday in September — rather than the traditional first Tuesday after the first Monday in November — was an...
  • Can globalism amend our Constitution?

    We live in a global economy, right? But the elites mouthing this mantra haven't shared with the U.S. people the news that globalism not only means open borders for the movement of goods and the migration of peoples, but also textbooks teaching children to be citizens of the world instead of patriots. Globalism also means bending the U.S. Constitution to conform to the opinions of foreigners who pompously enunciate new laws and new human rights. The utterings of these self-important bureaucrats in the United Nations and Europe could be merely matters for TV humor if it were not that U.S....

    I am a college student pursuing degrees in economics, journalism and law. Because of the multiple courses of study, I have been in school a few years longer than average. Over the course of my studies, I have been enrolled in four colleges and will soon be in a fifth. In all of this time, I have had many professors. These pedagogues have ranged from the liberal to the marxist, to the downright anarcho/loony. As most of you already know, a moderate professor is rare and a conservative almost unheard of. The leftists control not only the classroom, but through...

Are Republican Platforms Worth Fighting For? Excerpts from Phyllis Schlafly's speech to Texas Eagle Forum's 2002 Banquet, 6/6/02 One of the main features of any political convention is adoption of the platform, the statement of our beliefs and goals. A party platform is like the flag soldiers carry into battle. It's the symbol of what we care about and what we think is worth our work and sacrifice....
