    VIEW THE TRIBUTE ON YOUTUBE HERE America has lost one of its most important people several days ago. This courageous woman who is the last of the real feminists, a link in our history and particularly the history of the conservative movement is now lost. I write this article this tribute to one of America's great matriarchs as a millennial, a member of a generation that as I said in a previous article is either a make or break for America, yet as I watch all the libtards, most of them millennials, celebrate and jeer at her death I can...

    Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly passed away on Monday. She was 92. Schlafly, the founder of Eagle Forum, rose to prominence in the 1960s when she wrote the book A Choice, Not an Echo, which sold more than three million copies. She was a leading voice of opposition against the Equal Rights Amendment, fighting to preserve traditional gender roles. She wrote a total of 23 books, the most recent being an expanded edition of A Choice, Not an Echo. In March, Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump for president. Schafly was predeceased by her husband, John, and is survived by her six children.

    My copy of Congressman X* arrived in yesterday’s mail. Since the identity of congressman X is anonymous, I should be hesitant to accept anything inside. But, since nothing I read contradicts my personal beliefs which took decades to form, I admit my bias in accepting his accusations against congress, party leadership, the president, and the typical voter. Simply put, government is a lie. Voters are too ignorant see through the gauze, the hype, the smoke, the deceptions to realize that everyone in Washington, DC looks out for themselves first, last and always. Money is everything.

    Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely “suspend” their campaigns after losing a key primary, instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates knew that it’s impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it’s been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice Longworth, “You can’t make a soufflé rise twice.”

One of the right-wing’s most prominent empires is reeling — and its president says it’s Ted Cruz’s fault. Eagle Forum, a conglomerate of conservative groups which anti-feminist icon Phyllis Schlafly started in 1972, has been rocked by inner turmoil over the last week that has pit family members against each other. And the group’s head, Ed Martin, says Cruz’s campaign is using its much-discussed “dirty tricks” to sow conflict in the organization as revenge for Schlafly’s endorsement...

However, Schlafly stood by her position in an interview with WorldNetDaily today, even mocking the Cruz campaign’s failure to win support from a plurality of evangelical Republican voters in many of the early primary states: “The amazing thing is, Cruz based his campaign on courting the evangelicals, and even the evangelicals voted for Trump!” “Trump has got the energy to punch the kingmakers in the nose and take the selection...

The consultants who rewrote the party rules after 2012 are now trying to explain to their patrons what went wrong and how to fix it. Plan A, of course, was to assure the nomination of Jeb Bush, whose views are the perfect reflection of the Republican donor class. But despite many months of campaigning, $114 million of political funds raised through June 30, and two presidential debates watched by a record-setting average of 24 million people, Jeb Bush has...

    When the Supreme Court ruled by the narrowest possible margin that Kentucky's definition of marriage is unconstitutional, the court's decision was qualified by its assurance that religious freedom would not be jeopardized. "The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection," the court solemnly intoned on June 26. In the Appalachian hills of eastern Kentucky, one brave woman is testing whether Justice Anthony Kennedy really meant it when he wrote those words. But the local federal judge for eastern Kentucky, David Bunning, has wrongly sent Kim Davis to jail for her beliefs, without respecting or accommodating...

The record-breaking audience of 24 million, which is ten times Fox’s usual nightly viewership, had to agree. Trump’s new position paper reinforces the blunt talk that has propelled his rise in the polls: "A nation without borders is not a nation. A nation without laws is not a nation. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation." That’s a refreshing contrast to the immigration paper recently released by Jeb...

Hurray for the stalwart Americans who resisted the demands of Obama, the Republican leadership and the big-donor claque – but Speaker Boehner plans to give Congress another chance this week to make this dangerous mistake. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would turn over to globalists the power to issue regulations about U.S. trade, immigration, the environment, labor and commerce. It’s called a “living agreement,” which means the globalists can amend and change the text of the so-called agreement after it...

Obama promised an end to wars in the Middle East, a more prosperous economy for the average American and more harmonious race relations, but all three problems have only gotten worse.

    Who would have thought, only a few years ago, that our basic First Amendment right of free speech would be under attack on college campuses (of all places!)? But those are now ordinary campus events. Progressives want to shield college students from what are called "scary ideas." They are not referring to Halloween pranks or costumes, or to historic wartime episodes of bitter fighting; the new buzzwords are "trigger warnings," "outgrowths of fragility" or "sexual paranoia." Professors talk about the need to overturn the "privilege theory." Anyone who can't claim to belong to an oppressed group must be unfairly advantaged...

    Barack Obama has announced the particulars of his executive amnesty for an estimated five million of the many more foreigners who broke our laws to get into the United States. This amnesty will, of course, become a magnet for more illegals to work the same racket, hoping for the same reward. Obama's action makes us wonder if he really wants to terminate the rule of law and replace it with rule by executive fiat. His executive action gives the lawbreakers exactly what they sought when they violated our laws. Thanks to a New York Times expose, we know that details...

    President Obama’s looming executive action on immigration reform represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, according to conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly. Fort Sumter, of course, is the sea fort in Charleston, South Carolina. It was there the opening shots of the U.S. Civil War were fired on April 12, 1861. Schlafly at first considered comparing the Obama amnesty to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but decided that Obama’s plan is much more subtle. “With Pearl Harbor, the American people knew what was happening,” she said. But Fort Sumter represented the beginning of a ruinous war, and Schlafly, like fellow conservative luminary...

    Very few individuals who were not politicians or generals have had a major impact on American political history. Phyllis Schlafly is one of the exceptions. Twice. In 1964, she helped launch the grass-roots conservative movement that flourishes today, transformed by the internet, and in 1972 she inaugurated what came to be called “social conservatism.” More than any other individual, she was responsible for the nomination of Barry Goldwater, and thus, indirectly, Ronald Reagan. And virtually single-handedly, she defeated the so-called Equal Rights Amendment. Schlafly was born 90 years ago today in St. Louis, the daughter of John and Odile Stewart....

    Obamacare has proven again to be the biggest legislative failure in history, with last week's ruling that its subsidies are illegal. These subsidies induced some 5 million Americans to sign up for Obamacare but are prohibited by law as held by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Halbig v. Burwell. This humiliation to the Obama administration was a devastating setback to legislation already disfavored by a 59-40 percent margin among the public, according to the latest CNN poll. Twice as many Americans say they are being hurt rather than helped by Obamacare. Officially known as the...

    Phyllis Schlafly, an icon of the conservative movement who has been active for half a century, is warning the nation: Donald Trump is the last hope for America. Schlafly unloaded on Republicans in Congress for passing the $1.1 trillion omnibus bill last week, a move she called a “betrayal.” “This is a betrayal of the grassroots and of the Republican Party,” Schlafly said in an exclusive interview with WND. “We thought we were electing a different crowd to stand up for America, and they didn’t. We’re extremely outraged by what Congress has done. Nancy Pelosi couldn’t have engineered it any...

    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.

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:...
