    A conservative alternative in the up-and-coming online encyclopedia field said it aims to combat what it calls "liberal bias" on the highly popular collaborative Wikipedia.com site. Conservapedia.com was formed late last year in a bid to challenge the established online encyclopedia giant Wikipedia, which is one of the 15 most visited websites in the world. The conservative encyclopedia began as a class project for Andrew Schlafly - whose mother, Phyllis founded the Eagle Forum - and 58 of his New Jersey history students. It claims to have grown since then to be "one of the largest and most reliable online...

    Donald Trump paid his respects on Saturday at the funeral of conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, 92, who passed away this week. “We are here today to honor the life and legacy of a truly great American patriot,” Trump told attendees of Schlafly’s funeral mass on Saturday afternoon. “A movement has lost its hero.” Trump met privately with the Archbishop in the adjoining chapel where Schlafly was married in 1949. Trump was welcomed by the mass attendees with a standing ovation. “We lost an amazing woman and our county has lost a true patriot. A strong, proud, and fierce warrior. And...

    Truncated title. Full title: Ed Martin: Eagle Forum Office Spray-Painted with ‘Slurs’ and ‘Nasty Stuff from the Left’ After Phyllis Schlafly’s Death On Wednesday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM, Ed Martin, the president of the Eagle Forum, revealed that his organization’s offices were vandalized on the day after founder Phyllis Schlafly’s death. Martin told the story in response to Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow’s observation that “we’ve now gotten to this nasty point in society where we must be so nasty to one another, we cannot simply disagree and debate civilly – that we must be jerks.” “I’m not...

    Leftists have reminded the world just how much they hated Phyllis Schlafly. As news of the conservative author and activist’s death spread, Twitter was deluged with tweets celebrating her death. While most of the tweets were from ordinary members of the public, many others came from columnists and commentators. Here’s Jeb Lund, a columnist for The Guardian.

    Phyllis Schlafly, the St. Louis-born American intellectual who grew from a shy and beautiful girl to become one of the most influential political activists of the 20th and 21st century, died today, Monday, September 5, 2016 according to Eagle Forum. Schlafly has written or co-written more than 20 books, on military policy, education, legal and social issues. Her first book, “A Choice, Not an Echo,” is credited with winning Barry Goldwater the Republican nomination for president and inspiring the conservative movement that eventually led to Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Her military work was a major factor in Reagan's’ decision to proceed...

    New York Observer ^ | Michael Malice
    The Republican Party likes to present itself as the party of free enterprise. One of the enormous benefits of a free market is that it allows for experimentation in finding solutions to personal and social needs. If a man invents a better mousetrap, everyone benefits while he grows wealthier for it. If he has a bad idea, the costs are his alone to bear. This is the precise opposite of government bureaucracy, where the costs are borne by the taxpayers and the benefits transferred to corporations via lobbying. Given that, one would think that the GOP would look at the...

    Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader of the USSR in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War.

    Here's the key problem with women's studies: They ignore the women most worthy of study. Into this category falls the dear--and she was--departed author and activist Phyllis Schlafly. She crammed more achievements into one lifetime than any trio of the feminists she so implacably opposed crammed into three: a marriage that lasted more than half a century, nine children, 14 grandchildren, advanced degrees, more than a score of books--several of which we have signed copies of in the office, and numerous political victories. I remember when she opposed one of the Left's many Trojan horses--the so-called Equal Rights Amendment. In...

    The Conservative Case For Trump If you can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but wonder if you could vote for Donald Trump, you need to buy this book. In it, you’ll learn from conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly—lawyer, bestselling author, and “sweet- heart of the Silent Majority”—why Donald Trump is worthy of every conservative’s vote. Joined by Ed Martin, the former head of the Missouri Republican Party, and Brett Decker, formerly an editorial writer with the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Times, Schlafly presents the real Trump, the Trump she and her colleagues have met with and interviewed, the Trump who promises...

How quaint.Schlafly took many unpopular positions in her life, beginning with her anti-feminism stance:While many of Schlafly’s positions were out of step with the cultural “mainstream” her bravest position may have come last December when she announced her support for a Donald Trump presidency long before his candidacy was a fait accompli  and when no other “bona fide” conservative would touch him. “He does look like he’s the last hope [for America],” Schlafly said....

    "Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the 'kingmakers' on behalf of America's workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty. I was able to speak with her by phone only a few weeks ago, and she sounded as resilient as ever. Our deepest prayers go out to her family and all her loved ones. She was a patriot, a champion for women, and a symbol of strength. She fought every...

    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.

    Britain's decision to "leave" the European Union (EU) ended the career of Prime Minister David Cameron, who had campaigned hard to "remain" in that supranational body of unelected bureaucrats. Small-c conservatives in Cameron's own Conservative Party rebelled against the liberals and globalists who dominate both major parties over there. Sound familiar? Everyone agrees that Donald Trump is the big winner of the vote. As the New York Times conceded, the "leave" voters are "eerily similar to Donald Trump's followers, motivated by many of the same frustrations and angers." Trump, who just happened to land in Britain as the results were...

    We’re long past being surprised by the perfidy of Republican politicians who would rather celebrate the 2016 election of another radical leftist than support Donald Trump. In March, Mitt Romney said Trump was “…unworthy of the office of president of the United States.” This from the 2012 Party nominee who was too submissive to campaign against the treachery of an America-hating, Marxist Muslim and the most dishonest individual to ever occupy the White House. In August of last year, Daily Caller contributor Brian Joondeph wrote of then GOP golden boy Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton: “They both want to grow...

    From the 1776 Maryland Declaration of Rights and the 1783 New Hampshire Bill of Rights we are reminded of the proper American attitude toward a government hostile to freedom: The doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind. In a recent post to her Eagle Forum website, the highly respected and admired Phyllis Schlafly unfortunately resorted to a lot of snark and little reason in her decades’ old opposition to an Article V convention of the states to reclaim free government. Beginning with her title, “Failed Republicans Want...

    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.”

    I think that I now understand that Cruz and Rush and even the National Review have all been on the same page with a strategy that is about to fail. Let Trump knock out all the other candidates and then Cruz can knock out Trump. It might have worked if Cruz had been more likable but he's Godawful. I've had reservations about Trump from the beginning, but if Phyllis Schlafly's on board, so am I. If Trump morphs into some kind of typical liberal after he becomes president, we'll fire him
