    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...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump praised longtime conservative champion Phyllis Schlafly at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday and at her funeral in St. Louis the following day. In a statement released on Monday, the day Schlafly passed away, Trump said: Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and kingmakers on behalf of Americas workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty. Schlafly established herself as one of the greatest...

    Remarks delivered by John Schlafly at the funeral of his mother, Phyllis Schlafly, at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on September 10, 2016:When my father, Fred Schlafly, reached the age of 75, and realized he could no longer compete in the sports he had enjoyed throughout his life, he turned to my mother one day and said: "Phyllis, you probably have about 10 good years left." That conversation took place more than 30 years ago. And those 30 extra years were good years: good for us, of course, her family and friends who received her wise counsel; and also...

    Seattles full team interlocked arms and stood on the sideline. Unity, was their idea. Unity of a team asking for a more unified community. Cornerback Jeremy Lane, who took a knee during Seattles game last week, joined the team in locked arms. So the players agreed to act like a team with one voice here. On the Dolphins, four players - Arian Foster, Kenny Stills, Michael Thomas and Jelani Jenkins - stood during a ceremony for the 9-11 victims on Sundays 15th anniversary. They then dropped to a knee at the start of the anthem. The rest of the team...

We are here today to honor the life and legacy of a truly great American patriot, Trump told attendees of Schlaflys 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...

    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 Reagans presidency. Her military work was a major factor in Reagan's decision to proceed...

    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...

    Issue one! To understand John McLaughlin, it was helpful to have been a 13-year-old entering an all-boys Jesuit school in the 1950s. For when John yelled "Wronnng" at me from his center chair of "The McLaughlin Group," it hit with the same familiar finality I had heard, many times, from Jesuits at the front of the class at Gonzaga. In that era, John was himself a Jesuit teacher at Fairfield Prep, where the black cape he wore and his authoritarian aspect had earned him from his students the nickname -- Father God. In 1970, Fr. John heard another calling, and,...

Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day, according to Fox 4 News. The NFLs strict rules on uniforms forced the league to deny the Cowboys request to wear the decal for the upcoming season. Dallas police said it appreciated the Cowboys support. Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that...

Weve known for some time that nobody really cares about your efforts to make America clamor for the end of the racist monstrosity known as the Washington Redskins. Its been a non-issue for most people since day one. However, if you hate that ugly football team, things just took a turn for the worse. Not only is the majority ambivalent, but a new Washington Post poll has been released and, according to the data, Social Justice Warriors have failed to convince Native Americans that they should care either.

    Navy SEAL Charlie Keating IV was a real-life Batman—a self-made superhero. On behalf of our troops and veterans, it is important to properly honor this 31-year-old Millennial—who gave the ultimate sacrifice at the hands of ISIL thugs in Iraq last Tuesday—but was painted as the progeny of a pilferer. The Bronze Star Medal with Combat “V” recipient courageously took on some 125 ISIS fighters and 20 assault vehicles to rescue a handful of U.S. military advisors. All of the advisors escaped—but their rescuer, Keating IV, was fatally hit. For this sacrifice, outlets like CNN honored Keating IV by telling the...

    George Mason University will rename their law school "The Antonin Scalia School of Law" after receiving two donations totaling $30 million. These gifts are the largest in school history. While the name change isn't official yet, everything is expected to be switched to the new name by July. (To avoid the awkward acronym that many pointed out was formed by the new name, the school will probably be referred to as "Scalia Law School.") The change still needs a final go-ahead from Virginias higher education oversight agency, which is expected to give its blessing. The schools dean expects that people...

He could be both scholarly theorist (he called his theory Originalism, or doing what the Founding Fathers surely intended in their time) and agitator extraordinaire as he took on all comers, always looking for trouble even if...

    Antonin Scalia, dead unexpectedly this weekend at 79, was not the most politically powerful justice during his three decades on the Supreme Court. That distinction belonged to the court's two swing votes, Sandra Day O'Connor and then Anthony M. Kennedy, respectively the philosopher queen and king of our fraying republican order. Unlike them, Scalia did not have the opportunity to write all his preferences into the law of the land. For every victory he won, there was a sharp defeat; for every important majority opinion a stinging, quotable dissent. And on the issues he cared the most about - abortion,...

While the former usually receives resounding condemnation, the latter particularly the Soviet variant is wholly ignored by many today.

Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The towns welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says.
