    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Phyllis Schlafly passed away, the mother of conservatism, if you will, along with William F. Buckley and a few others way back. I remember Phyllis Schlafly was tough. Phyllis Schlafly was demanding. When it came to the principles of conservatism, she harbored no infiltrators. She harbored nobody insincere about it, and she was able to identify those who were trying to capitalize on it but were not sincere about it. She could spot them a mile away. When I first came on the scene, which would have been August 1st of 1988, it took a year or...
  • Senate Immigration Bill Is A Sell-Out, Not Reform (Phyllis Schlafly Hammers Mexico Welfare Act Alert

    The immigration reform bill recently announced in the U.S. Senate should be titled the Act to Destroy the Republican Party because it pits President George W. Bush against the majority of the Republican Party that elected him. When Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., appeared as the centerpiece of the photo-op announcing it, that told the grass roots all they needed to know about the politics of the deal trumpeted as bipartisan. The Bush administration has been tone deaf about how offensive some find the words "comprehensive" and "compromise." The American people want border security that they can see with their own...

    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...

    ... We tell you all this to lend the property authority to a column [Phyllis Schafly} wrote this week abut the American Civil Liberties Union. In "ACLU finds pot of gold at the foot of the Cross," she clears away the self-righteous underbrush the ACLU has been growing as it invokes the First Amendment in its attacks on the religious community and America's traditions. It's not the First Amendment, she says; it's the money. "The reason that the Los Angeles County seal is such a big deal is not because it is a violation of the First Amendment. It is...

    Ann Coulter might want to steal an advance copy of Joe Conason's "Big Lies: The Right-Wing Propaganda Machine and How It Distorts the Truth," due out next week. The mini-skirted mouthpiece is skewered for 23 pages as Conason, the New York Observer national correspondent, barbecues her and Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Bernard Goldberg and other angry-for-the-airwaves pundits. Conason notes that while the 41-year-old blond may idolize anti-feminist Phyllis Schlafly, she isn't exactly a "model for her 'abstinence education' campaign. ... Sexual abstinence ... is for the poor rubes who stay home watching 'The 700 Club,' not for urbane young Republicans...
  • Should illegal aliens get driver's licenses?

    Should illegal aliens get driver's licenses? Phyllis Schlafly (archive) May 13, 2003 The hottest controversy in state legislatures today regards allowing illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses. Americans were shocked to discover that most of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 carried driver's licenses from Virginia, Florida or New Jersey. A driver's license is the pass to board a plane, as well as the license to a drive car. It confers a sort of quasi-citizenship and, as described by one illegal alien in Texas, "The driver's license ends up becoming our pass to be in this country." Since 9/11, 21 states...
