    President Trump has announced that he has nominated 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court as the replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. “Judge Gorsuch has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support,” Trump stated in introducing his pick to the public Tuesday night. “Mr. President, I am honored and I am humbled. Thank you very much,” Gorsuch, an Episcopalian, said to applause in accepting the nomination. While it is not known where Gorsuch himself stands on abortion, he is the author of the book...

    I’m a Mormon woman supporting a moral outcome on Election Day. I don’t condone sexual exploitation of anyone, and I believe Trump is the moral choice. Asking him to step aside is not an option, nor is it possible at this juncture, without causing chaos and court challenges. It would also set a terrible precedent empowering biased media collusion, as evidenced in recent Wikileaks exposes. The outcome would be catastrophic, handing the election to Clinton. It’s open season, and it could get worse. But Trump’s a fighter, and that’s what America needs. It leaves many people of faith asking, “What...

    Editor's Note: This piece was written by Phyllis Schlafly's son Andy.Phyllis Schlafly was with us a glorious 92 years, and active in politics for more than 70 of them. It is difficult to identify any issue that she was not on the right side of, typically years or decades before others rallied beside her. She wrote or spoke out on nearly every controversial American political matter, and the conservative movement today is based largely on work that she did five, ten, twenty, and even sixty years ago. Though we grieve her passing, she leaves us with a legacy that will...

    This week we lost a great lady of the right. For seventy years Phyllis Schlafly was a warrior on the frontlines of the battles to defend the Republic against its enemies on the left both domestic and foreign. On Monday she passed at the age of 92, on the eve of the publication of her 27th book, The Conservative Case For Trump. For seventy years Phyllis fought in the culture wars that have been mostly lost by the right, in no small part because Phyllis was virtually unique both in the intelligence she brought to the battle and the energy...

    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.

    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...

    Editor's note: Phyllis Schlafly passed away on September 5 at the age of 92. She will be missed. 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 in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War. The 1985 Geneva summit was highly advertised as a potential showdown between Reagan and Gorbachev, the...

    Proponents of the Equal Rights Amendment shot themselves in the foot by showing their true stripes on tv to the then-normal American majority, at the November 1977 IWY in Houston.

One of their leaders admitted they had no chance, the late Phyllis Schlafly' s forces had defeated them with prayer.

    The subject of women in the military was addressed by both political parties at their national conventions last month, and it's no surprise that Republicans and Democrats came to diametrically opposite conclusions. After the two parties adopted sharply conflicting platforms in Cleveland and Philadelphia, Congress must now try to reconcile the same conflict in the annual defense policy bill known as NDAA, because the House version of that bill reflects the Republican view while the Senate version includes the Democrat position. The Republican platform states, "We oppose unnecessary policy changes including Selective Service registration of women for a possible future...

    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."

    If you want to understand the catastrophe of education during the Obama administration, a new book by Dr. Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, is a must-read. His book is entitled "Drilling Through the Core: Why Common Core Is Bad for American Education." Common Core is the education fad that swept the nation with the deceptive slogan "higher standards." Everyone is for "higher standards," right? Who could possibly object to higher standards for all our kids? As Dr. Wood explains, though, the word "higher" did not mean higher intellectual content of the standards, but a higher percentage...

    This foreign influx into our National Pastime may help explain why our youth is abandoning baseball. Youth who play baseball have declined by more than 40% since 2000, and some communities where baseball was once booming now struggle to fill teams. Television ratings for World Series games are less than half what they were three decades ago. Baseball owners are doing the same thing that big corporations do – bring in foreign labor to take jobs that should go to Americans. American baseball players are better, as the awards and Hall of Fame prove, but perhaps baseball owners think that...

    In what could arguably be seen as another debate debacle for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the Florida Senator seemed to confirm Phyllis Schlafly's assertion that he is "back to his old ways" of deceiving conservatives on immigration. In response to attacks leveled against him by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rubio made a demonstrably and provably false declaration about his position on President Obama's executive amnesty. Rubio even accused Cruz of "telling lies" about his position on executive amnesty- even though nationally-televised video footage of Marco Rubio confirms Cruz's allegation, and reveals that Rubio lied in front of a nation-wide viewing...

    Schlafly unloads on Rubio: 'He betrayed us all' In 2009, Marco Rubio was a plucky challenger for the open Senate in Florida, taking on incumbent Republican Gov. Charlie Crist. Though Rubio was trailing in the polls, one leading conservative activist thought that he had real potential and vowed to help him. “When Marco Rubio ran for the Senate in Florida, I think I was the first one to endorse him,” said Phyllis Schlafly. “I made a trip down to Florida in 2009 just for the purpose of helping him.” But Schlafly, a legendary conservative activist, author, and WND columnist, now...

    HE 'BIG CON' BEGINS To win in the 2010 Tea Party Wave, Rubio ran as the anti-amnesty candidate despite an aggressive pro-amnesty record. Politico reports: "Arturo Vargas, the executive director for the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, said Rubio, the son of Cuban exiles born in Miami, blocked 'scorched-earth' legislation that sought to clamp down on illegal immigration. 'He, as speaker, kept many of those from coming up to a vote,' Vargas said. 'We were very proud of his work as speaker of the House.' "In 2006, Rubio even voted for a bill that would have allowed...

    Picture taken Nov. 15, 2009, in Sanibel, Florida in the Andrews home at fundraiser they hosted for Marco Rubio, when nobody gave Rubio any chance to defeat Charlie Crist. Phyllis Schlafly made a special trip to Florida, at Pat Andrew's request, to headline the event. Phyllis Schlafly is a retired American constitutional lawyer, conservative activist, author, and speaker and founder of the Eagle Forum. She has led the conservative movement for 50 years. Schlafly came to national attention when millions of copies of her self-published book, A Choice, Not an Echo, were distributed in support of Goldwater's 1964 presidential campaign....

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Character Abe Vigoda, whose leathery, sunken-eyed face made him ideal for playing the over-the-hill detective Phil Fish in the 1970s TV series "Barney Miller" and the doomed Mafia soldier in "The Godfather," died Tuesday at age 94. Vigoda's daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs, told The Associated Press that Vigoda died Tuesday morning in his sleep at Fuchs' home in Woodland Park, New Jersey. The cause of death was old age. "This man was never sick," Fuchs said.

    Living legend and conservative heroine Phyllis Schlafly slammed National Review for their efforts to take down GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump. On Friday's program of The Laura Ingraham Show, Schlafly declared, "I don’t recognize National Review as the authority on conservatism." Schlafly blasted National Review for being more eager to fight Donald Trump than they are to fight the Republican donor-class, whom Schlafly calls the Kingmakers.

    Phyllis Schlafly founded the Eagle Forum in 1972 to enable conservative and pro-family men and women to participate in the process of self-government and public policy making. The goal: that America will continue to be a land of individual liberty, respect for family integrity, public and private virtue and private enterprise. The past 40-plus years have arguably been a testament to the Eagle Forum's success. Recently, Schlafly--while not using the words "I endorse"--effectively endorsed Donald Trump for president just before Christmas. She has doubled down on her sentiments more recently, making the argument to Breitbart News the businessman is the...

    On the last day of 2015 the longest serving member of President Obama's Cabinet, Arne Duncan, quietly stepped down from his official position as what the Washington Post called "the most powerful education secretary in U.S. history." The federal government now provides about 10 percent of the money spent on public schools, and Duncan used that money, to an extent never before, to impose his will on local schools. Arne's departure is a good time to review what's wrong with America's public schools and how the federal government has made them worse. Instead of giving an account of his stewardship,...
