I delivered this laundry list to a standing room only crowd of citizens who gathered wanting answers to the growing questions about Evan McMullin, a new presidential candidate that claims to be the “principled” alternative.
Part II: Who Is McMullin? (Part I is under construction)
Utah is known for many wonderful things – beautiful mountains, ski slopes, the Grand Canyon, the squeaky clean culture of Mormonism, Glenn Beck, Mormons trusting Mormons and mounds of funeral potatoes and green jello.
Enter Evan McMullin. Since he has not really been vetted and the election is around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to analyze this presidential candidate. In doing so, I spent many hours researching and documenting rumors and stories posted on the Internet. Some information is bogus, such as a fake Form 990 claiming funding from the Clinton Foundation. I have disclosed that on both here on my blog site www.CherilynEagar.com and on my radio show, AM 630 Salt Lake City, www.KTALKMedia.com 10-Noon MT daily. I have backed up this information with the original sources.
Evan McMullin is a BYU grad, Wharton business school grad, worked a brief stint with Goldman Sachs, San Francisco doing mergers and acquisitions. He’s a career government employee, 11 years CIA operative in counter terrorism, volunteer at the U.N., is a member of the [dubious] Council on Foreign Relations (responsible for many foibles abroad), and former House Conference policy director. He’s 40 years old, never been married. He sees the world from a globalist view, the view from the Middle East, a place that many warned, including Patrick Buchanan, we should never have intervened.
In short, if you like continual wars and skirmishes abroad, a nation under U.N. control, nation building, and non-stop foreign aid to countries that hate us, especially in the Middle East (where we are making a lot of Muslims very angry at us for maiming and killing their sons and children), you will love Evan. (He documented it on a recent Tedx Talks speech.
If you think that the marriage issue is over and you just want to move on, and you don’t think religious liberty is worth fighting for and that it would be a mistake to appoint strong Supreme Court justices such as Antonin Scalia, and the most you can do about abortion is to stop taxpayer funding, then you will love Evan McMullin’s nominees.
If you believe that this nation’s prosperity will thrive by competing in a global economy that sends jobs overseas and that it’s OK for international tribunals to over-write the sovereignty of the U.S. Constitution with regional and unelected bureaucracies and courts through agreements such as TPP, then vote for Evan McMullin.
If your favorite people in Congress are John McCain, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, who have each worked very hard to break their trust with American voters when they supported amnesty and championed raising the debt limit to multiple trillions, vote for Evan.
If you think it’s OK to welcome 100,000 Muslim refugees that have not been adequately checked for terrorist ties and 10 million illegal alien criminals in the name of humanitarianism, and to continue to keep open borders, perpetuating an enabling cycle of amnesty and voter fraud to keep conservatives and Republicans from being elected, you’ll love Evan.
If you like the idea of the United States, the number one global benefactor, redistributing 1/3 of the world’s humanitarian foreign aid in a “global economic order” of nations that stomp and spit on the U.S. Constitution in return for its generosity, vote Evan McMullin.
In fact, if you loved the U.S. government’s huge faux pas in 2014, giving arms to the Syrian rebels, responsible for the beheading of a 12 year old boy caught on YouTube, you’ll be happy to know, Evan was there in Turkey helping Rep. Adam Kinzinger negotiate that agreement to support what became ISIS.
If you like Republican candidates that give a wink and a nod to top Democratic strategists and establishment SuperPACS, such as CFR Kahlil Byrd; the vulgar GOP media strategist Rick Wilson, as well as the establishment elite Romney bundler John Kingston – all NeverTrumpers who are raising money and collaborating to help McMullin defeat the Republican nominee and the platform that the First Lady of the Conservative Movement, Phyllis Schlafly described as the strongest, most conservative platform of our lifetime, you will love Evan.
If you believe that this candidate Evan McMullin is to be the new leader of a new party with new ideas that you support, please raise your hand.
Is this movement not merely a rebrand of the old guard establishment? Call it the “New Millennial Neo-Con” movement.
George Romney and Nelson Rockefeller may have duped Utah into believing it would be better to vote for LBJ than to elect Goldwater in 1964, but will it be duped again in 2016?
If you think this is all okay because, well … he’s a Mormon, then don’t just love Evan McMullin. Vote for him.
No, Utah is smarter than this. Even Evan McMillin himself admitted he’s here to deliver the White House for a second go around, to the biggest criminals in national history, the Clintons.
Pass the potatoes and green jello, please.

In the cases of the women who claim Donald Trump harassed and sexually exploited them, fraud could be involved. It’s not their lies and exaggerations. It’s their instigator Gloria Allred. It’s about time for someone to blow the whistle on this radical feminist.
When I saw her at the press conference, I got sick to my stomach. If these women were suffering so much, why did they not file charges YEARS ago? Why did they wait until now?
The timing was suspicious and the opportunistic enticement too great. In fact, she had tried this harassment before – with Mitt Romney.” As a staunch supporter of Barack Obama, she claimed she had dirt on Mitt and that there would be an October Surprise in 2012. It turns out she wanted to expose Romney when he was an LDS bishop for “bullying” a Mormon woman into not aborting her baby.
Now, an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton, this is Allred’s 2016 October Surprise. Not only was Gloria a supporter, she was a Democratic national delegate. And it appears that Allred has a penchant for targeting Republicans. She also dragged out victims into the political ring to knock out Herman Cain. Here she is consoling her client, Meg Whitman’s illegal alien domestic worker, who she fired (because it’s illegal) when she ran for Governor (Courtesy Getty Images).
I’m thinking this could be a great case of “tortious interference of business,” also called “Interference with Prospective Contract.” Basically what that means is that one party intentionally acts to cause another party to violate business relationships with a third party. That’s us. The People who support Donald Trump. The business of running for office is truly a business in every sense.
As a Clinton delegate, Gloria Allred has been, and is intentionally, timing these media courts in a conspiracy to maliciously alienate not just Trump, but Romney, Cain and Whitman, from his contracts with us, donors and supporters, or to deliberately cause his campaign to tank, after millions of Americans have invested in this business called a political campaign – listed in the IRS Code as a PAC.
It is certainly a violation of the Constitution that the media and Gloria can be allowed to hold a kangaroo court in the media and then declare him de facto guilty without a real court and due process. This is profane and indecent behavior and someone must stop Allred.
The Allred Formula
The language all too familiar in Allred’s cases are these words we are hearing: “His hands were like an octipus – they were all over the place!” She knows the formula.
Meanwhile, Trump has insisted that the claims are false. On Friday, the campaign issued the following statements:
Regarding the Allegations of Summer Zervos, from her cousin John Barry:
Response from Donald J. Trump:
Why You Should Not Give Allred the Time of Day in Your Living Room
Leave it to Gloria to be the drama queen of the radical feminist movement. Gloria Allred is a feminist from hell. She is a twisted, real live caricature of what Rush Limbaugh calls “a feminazi.”
She loves to exaggerate the claims. This is what discrimination attorneys do. They coach their clients into the drama. She knows that because of The Violence Against Women Act, that monstrosity that feminists worked so hard to put into federal code, the tables are tipped upside down for any man that has so much as touched a woman in a way that she might deem “unwanted” or “assault.” Grow up, women. Seriously.
She has attitude. In her world, all men are entitled and privileged. She is a moldy leftover of an early feminism and takes advantage of other women for her own gain by crumbling them into little bits of victimhood. Then she walks away with all the money, dropping her bitterness along the path so she can find her way back to her office to repeat it all over again with another victim.
She is also what is called a “media whore.” She’s a narcissist who loves to grandstand holding news conferences at the drop of a hat and will do and say anything for attention.
I listened to her news conference. Trust me, it’s not worth your time. Allred is an opportunist holding a lurid kangaroo court in our living rooms, unannounced. She should be DISBARRED for plopping salacious details and vulgarities in front of our children, without warning.
She has a choice. She could conduct her business quietly, as most discrimination attorneys do. She is deliberately grandstanding and pimping this filth, at our children’s expense.
Tragically, she has chosen to vindictively live out her own victimized life experience by getting back at men, who she categorically despises. I have watched her bully men for years. She is an embarrassment, profiting from turning competent women into sniveling victims, a bizarre form of assault on women’s intelligence. Her bullying is hardly the courageous and strong role model feminists are supposed to be, able to take responsibility and move on when life gets tough.
Projecting her Pathology from the Past
Gloria has a rocky past of her own. I’m not belittling that misfortune. I’m belittling her response, because she is a coward. She projects her pathology onto her victims reliving her own emotional and volatile life experience and her own inability to deal with it. From rape to abortion-gone-wrong to a struggle as a two-time single mom, surviving one husband she claimed was manic-depressive, she simply could not find a way to move on.
Legally, she knows a woman can make any claim she wants and does not need to bring the substantive evidence to the court as required in other criminal cases. There is no statute of limitations. So much for equality. Thank you, Senator Orrin Hatch for claiming to have created this law and for sponsoring it. (By the way, we told you this would be the result.)
My message to you, women: TURN OFF THE TV when you see Gloria. It’s disgusting and embarrassing to women today who have moved beyond the tactics of feminist victimization and who have learned to take responsibility for themselves because it’s a positive character trait, regardless of gender.
My message to you, men: Start standing up to this bullying. This is bullying, you know. The Violence Against Women Act is discrimination against marriage, men and children. It targets men and gives women an unfair advantage, the epitome of reverse discrimination in the courts.
My message to you, Gloria: Save your litigation for the men who stab and murder women and the women who stab and murder men. (It does work both ways, you know.) You need therapy. We’re in the middle of an election. This campaign is not about you. We are weary of watching your melodramas on our TV screens.
This is about a platform and a party and policies that you despise. Among the values you loathe include the wholesomeness of the natural family, the sanctity of human Life before birth and in old age, and the miracle of strong religious values, grounded in forgiveness, about which you know absolutely nothing.
Your internal rage is out of control. Your brand of feminism has destroyed many families, marriages and children. You are a female version of Marley, forging your chains in hell link by link. My final message, Gloria, is the message you feminists love the most: Go home and take care of your grandchildren.
In the cases of the women who claim Donald Trump harassed and sexually exploited them, fraud could be involved. It’s not their lies and exaggerations. It’s their instigator Gloria Allred. It’s about time for someone to blow the whistle on this radical feminist. When I saw her at the press conference, I got sick to […]Read More
Sorting through authentic and fake Internet info and biased media during the last days [of the Election]On Oct 17, 2016 No Comments
It’s the last days. So to speak. November 8 is it. Not only is it my birthday, which I hope to be celebrating, I’m also hoping I get my birthday wish: the election of Donald Trump. For those that are scratching their heads and wondering why, here are my two Op Eds published in the Deseret News, owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and read by an international LDS audience.
Authentic v Fake Stories?
As a radio talk show host, I take great precautions to distance myself from information and rumors that cannot be verified. Most troubling and perplexing has been sorting through the authentic and the fake. It’s becoming more difficult on the Internet given technology that can impersonate and counterfeit with sophistication. If I read a blog post or news article and cannot trace the original statistics or claims, I cannot verify it and I cannot report on it unless I think there is some probability, but I also have to declare it is unproven.
This is likely fake.
No citation or link to the original. I traced it to a “talk show host” that identifies himself as a “white nationalist.” Stay away.
This is likely fake: It had a citation and so I went to the original document, the pdf file of the Form 990, same date, same Part and title, and page.
This is likely authentic: Here’s what the authentic form looks like. Now could this form have been doctored? Perhaps, but because the information in the page above is damaging and it would take requesting a copy from the IRS, and it can get time consuming. (This takes a research team.)
True or False? The Danney Williams Story
The story of Danney Williams, who claims he is Bill Clinton’s son, is an example of a story that could actually be true. However, without DNA proof, it will continue to be speculative. Perhaps he can subpoena Bill Clinton in a paternal suit to settle the DNA question. This one IS worth watching:
Here’s The Untold Story of Danney Williams, who claims to be Bill Clinton’s son. It’s short and worth watching, and if true, it is tragic.
According to the Drudge Report, CNN is trying to silence this story.
Bias and Hypocrisy?
CNN was interviewing Utah’s Democratic Party Chairman Peter Corroon who feigned to be a Utah family values guy, when his party distinguishes itself from the LDS community on the abortion and LGBT marriage issues and its PC social justice theme. Corroon declared that because of Trump’s behavior, Utah would vote Democrat for the first time in 50 years, referring to 1964, Goldwater.
Then African American Republican Party Chairman, James Evans, defended his support of Donald Trump when he brought up media hypocrisy. He mentioned the Danney Williams story, and CNN’s Carol Costello instantly shut it down and went to a break. It’s also a beautiful example of media bias, CNN being among the worst.
Somehow through it all, Hillary Clinton is protected. One child abandoned by the father, and then this story about Hillary representing a rapist or a 12 year old girl should have sent women fleeing and questioning her sincerity when she boasts about how she has done so much to help children.
Robert Gehrke of the Salt Lake Tribune, the more liberal of the two Utah papers, reported this story, and also included disparaging comments from Temple Taggart McDowell, a former Miss Utah, representing her state in the Miss Universe Pageant that Trump owned about 20 years ago. This is an example not only of media spin and exaggeration, but from my experience of years working in media, TV, film and theatre in major markets, tremendous hypocrisy from those casting the stones from their own glass houses.
In New York City and Dallas, where I’ve lived and worked in the professional theatre community, and in Hollywood, where I was born and raised, many men and woman, gay and straight, routinely and enthusiastically greet each other with big hugs and kisses, as this young woman described of Mr. Trump. It’s part of the culture in which I grew up. In Dallas, actors spread STD’s like crazy with each other, and some of my friends did not live to see beyond their 30’s.
I’ve also worked with the pageant world in Utah. I observed that Utah had an entirely different pageant culture from other states, and so I can see how this young Utah girl felt uncomfortable in that entertainment environment.
What we are witnessing in this election season is both cultural meltdown and the ultimate in hypocrisy. After all, it’s Hollywood and New York City that prop up actors, directors, producers, choreographers and their film, TV and theatre that demonstrate all manner of vulgarity and sexual exhibition on stage and in their real lives, even public nudity.
Frankly, the Utah entertainment culture is nearly as bad. I was recently in a theatre production in which the male actors – gay and straight – back stage freely walked in and out of the women’s dressing rooms, whether we were dressed or undressed. No one batted an eye. The language was not much different from what we heard in Donald Trump’s short audio.
This crowd is certainly not in a position to be criticizing Mr. Trump. But now there is a list of celebrities that say they will leave the U.S. if he is elected.
It’s well-known that most of Hollywood is uber-Left and could care less about any morals or values. They support candidates they know share that set of values. A stand-out is Miley Cyrus, the queen of filth. Have you ever watched her Bangerz Tour shock – “Love Money Party?” (Please, don’t. It’s pure porn with f-bombs flying every which way).
This is what many high school and college students model today. I encounter college students from the University of Utah routinely in downtown Salt Lake City, especially around game time to frequent the “sports bars.” They are as vulgar as Miley. I’m not justifying this behavior, I’m saying it’s a sad commentary on our culture. This language and behavior is becoming acceptable in the workplace as well. IN UTAH.
Wake up, Mormons.
Utah’s governor has been working over time to bring thousands of California businesses to Utah, calling it “Silicon Slopes.” At the legislative hearing in which I testified against the LGBT non-discrimination bill in 2015, one witness told the committee that several major companies that were considering relocating their headquarters to Utah would only do so upon the condition that Utah pass a statewide non-discrimination law. He added that the governor promised he would make it happen.
When I pleaded with Utah’s Lieutenant Governor to stop passage of that bill, and I shared a personal story, he was rude and condescending. Later that final night of the session, I was waiting for another official in the Governor’s office, he saw me and ordered me, “Get out. We don’t want to see you!”
Although Utah was promised that this new “compromise” law would protect religious liberty (which we knew it wouldn’t), Pandora’s Box opened wide, and Utahn’s were stunned to learn that a “bathroom bill” was not even needed. Schools were automatically opening locker rooms and bathrooms to boys and girls that felt they were of the opposite gender, and a trans-teacher that had always dressed as a man, showed up one day dressed as a woman. (Thankfully, National Eagle Forum’s lawsuit forced a stay. In theory. To be continued…)
Utah values? No surprise here, this is what Utah is becoming. If you’d like a better glimpse, here’s a video from the Utah Gay Pride Parade and Festival from 2014. Although it says “sorry” click on the blue button and it will play:
We can only look to ourselves for allowing this degradation of culture to happen in a state that was originally intended to be a safe haven for a religious people set apart.
It’s the last days. So to speak. November 8 is it. Not only is it my birthday, which I hope to be celebrating, I’m also hoping I get my birthday wish: the election of Donald Trump. For those that are scratching their heads and wondering why, here are my two Op Eds published in the […]Read More
My View: The Moral Case for Donald Trump
This opinion editorial was published in the Deseret News, October 14, 2016. Cherilyn Bacon Eagar is a blogger, radio talk show host and
one of Utah’s six Republican State Electors.
She was named 2011 Wasatch Woman of the Year for Community Service and for being the first Republican woman to run for U.S. Senate
[Source links have been added.]
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 is the moral imperative? Can an immoral leader stand for moral public policy?”
Responses include voting for neither – or not at all. Others don’t buy the binary choice. As the late Phyllis Schlafly, first lady of the conservative movement, said, “We have a two party system, and Jesus is not on the ballot.”
If you’re contemplating anything but the top two candidates and believe you will get a moral outcome, consider history [See Presidential Electoral history]:
The highest popular vote a third party candidate has ever received was 33 percent of the 270 electoral votes needed and 27.86 percent of the popular vote. The average number of electoral votes received is 6.44. A 1 to 2 percent third party vote can swing an election. McMullin is the intended spoiler candidate.
In this close election, the outcome would likely be Clinton.
We can judge candidates by the policies they promote, the people that surround them and the money they receive. Unprecedented, Trump raised $32 million for the RNC, but received only a fraction. [$2.2 million] Obviously, the GOP global establishment despises his American sovereignty policies that protect the Constitution. That accounts for their defection.
Schlafly said, “The Republican Party has never had a stronger platform of moral, pro-American policy.” Trump helped craft it and endorsed it. Her last book outlines The Conservative Case for Trump. His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, is a devout pro-Life Catholic woman. Many conservative religious leaders and 33 pro-Life leaders, including Phyllis Schlafly’s appointed successor, Ed Martin, surround him. For the first time, a presidential candidate champions the appointment of originalist judges in the tradition of Antonin Scalia, and the repeal of the Johnson Amendment, a huge win for religious liberty. Even Trump’s economic policy team is nearly absent the typical lineup of old guard Council on Foreign Relations, responsible for the history of weak foreign policy.
A popular talk show host among some Mormons said, “If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.” Really? One Utah GOP leader wrote, “We can maintain our ‘moral high ground’ while more babies get aborted, our second amendment rights vanish and the Supreme Court is changed forever.” Indeed, this is the platform Clinton pledged to support in the last debate.
We may not know what Trump will do, but we know what Clinton will do. She has already done it. We will get a hypocritical woman that laughed about ruining a 12-year old girl’s life by successfully representing her rapist. We will get more cover-ups, e-mails, immunities, $1.7 billion to Iran, $400 million ransom in untraceable foreign cash; Syria, Libya, Benghazi; also, single-payer HillaryCare, NAFTA’s lost jobs, open borders and a “new global economic order;” ongoing class warfare, riots, gangs, paid provocateurs, women and children slaughtered at Waco; the Clinton Foundation’s funding of 4,000 abortions in one year; handing Russia 20 percent of America’s uranium for $145 million profit; their personal profit of 94 percent of all donations, including from terrorist nations.
Historically, immoral – even pagan – leaders have been known to promote moral causes. No candidate is perfect. The moral choice is clear. That choice is Trump. He will make America great again.

I received an email from my friend Jerry Molen, producer of Schindler’s List and Jurassic Park and also the producer for Dinesh D’Souza’s films – the latest being Hillary’s America. If you are still a fence-sitter, please read and note the importance of his message.
Yes, the timing is crucial and each of us needs to find any way we can, besides our vote, to move the election towards the Trump column.
My intent is not to defend Donald J. Trump for anything he said, anything he did or anything he stands for. My intent is to simply remind all within my voice and/or my computer that we all know what we get if Hillary Clinton wins the election. At the same time we realize we don’t know exactly what we get with Trump. It makes the decision easy…..this is one of those rare times when we must go with what we don’t know. We have to vote for Trump.
Why? Appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court AND other judicial lifetime appointments. Mr. Obama has appointed over 600 Federal Judges to the courts and they are the ones who will be making decisions that will affect all of our lives (and our kids and their kids). So, yes it matters.
The continuing cover-up of the Clinton e-mails, questionable Immunities, Iran and ransom versus leverage, Syria and Libya, ObamaCare and it’s drastic details that are already messing people up on their health care. Think about single payer and how that will affect your family and the country. Socialism via progressivism vs liberty and freedoms.
The Benghazi Affair. There are still no answers except what the present administration wants us to believe. The continuing lie about a ‘video’…..shouldn’t we be over the top angry about this or do we just yawn and let it go. I can’t.
The Clinton Foundation. ……Many questions…..lousy answers……only thing for sure, the Clintons are getting very rich. How and why? Haiti ring a bell?
The ongoing blasting of Police and the charges of racism. Looting, riots, murder in the streets, street gangs from out of town….who funds that? The ‘left’ or Soros or others out to destroy America?
So the big question is, ‘What can we do’? Besides making sure we each vote……we can reach out to those who may not know how perilous a ‘Clinton’ Presidency will be. There is a film that tells us how.
A great American patriot gave us one route to victory. Through the truth captured within the film “Hillary’s America”, Dinesh D’Souza has brilliantly written and directed a visual journey into the real world of the Democrats and their candidate for president, Hillary Clinton.
While the film enjoyed a fairly successful run at the box office, it could have done better. There were too many on the left side of the political aisle who did not take the time to go to a theater. Sadly, these were the same people who needed to see the film and to be educated on political truths.
Each of us can take advantage of the upcoming DVD release of the film, “Hillary’s America”. Maybe this is the one event that we all need to get behind and push it out to the many who have not seen the film. It will surely turn some to oppose the Hillary run. It will surely educate many who never realized the truth about the Democratic party. It will surely allow each and every American to realize Hillary Clinton is not as she appears.
On the 11th of October the DVD will be available through the usual outlets or you can go to hillarysamericathemovie.com and find the best way for you to order the film for yourselves, your families, your colleagues and even your enemies and I am sure they will thank you for allowing them to know the truth.
And for those who wish to order them in quantity as gifts or simply to give away to deserving folk through social gatherings, clubs, church groups and the multitudes of others you may think of, as they prepare to vote on November 8th.

On Saturday, September 27, 2016, the Utah State Central Committee is meeting. A discussion regarding the ongoing legal challenge to defend a constitutional-representative form of elections versus the legislature’s unconstitutional interference with the First Amendment rights of a private corporation to assemble, establish its rules and set membership qualifications is scheduled. This summary is intended especially for its new members and those that have not been involved in the research and deliberations among Party leadership since 2013.
Original legal brief from DC Lobbyists Caplin and Drysdale, a DC firm that represented the Democratic National Committee and established Stephen Colbert’s SuperPAC for the purpose of mocking Republican candidates including Mitt Romney. Caplin & Drysdale is part of a national movement called “Count My Vote” to eliminate caucuses in all 50 states and to move this nation further away from the framer’s original intent to keep the power separated and guarded against consolidation.
This document outlining the supposed unconstitutionality of a caucus was emailed to members of the SCC the afternoon before its quarterly meeting and only a handful of members had been able to review it before the meeting. I was among them and I stood and spoke specifically to my findings.
I did some research on the authors of this document and learned their roles in the lobbyist firm found in this document.
This brief also clearly outlines what the legislature then put into a bill, SB 54 and, with the governor’s signature, was adopted into law.
It is a conflict of interest to give the decision-making power to the very people that will benefit from weakening and eventually destroying the caucus, the incumbent, the candidate with the name ID and access to lobbyist money.
I then researched the CMV donor records and took a screen shot of initial donors. They represent Utah’s best and brightest and most successful (and respectable) “Establishment.” Typically they are doing a favor for a friend (e.g. “I’ll give to your cause if you’ll give to mine.”) without really understanding what’s at stake.
One donor includes the husband of the newly elected national committeewoman. Her brother was also elected. Throughout his tenure, he presented the case urging the SCC to be conciliatory and to react to the demands of CMV. The Party voted to support a lawsuit, and now we have elected by acclamation two people that have actively opposed this position.
Layne Beck, an SCC member from Cache County, secured an attorney, Christ Troupis (yes, that’s the correct spelling, pronounced Chris with a t.) and my PAC, American Leadership Fund, paid for his travel expenses to deliver a speech to the SCC about the constitutional case for keeping the caucus. He received a standing ovation to a cheering crowd.
A core group of SCC members, of which I have been a part, vigilantly researched and led the movement to stand for the constitutional principles that are being eroded on every front, every policy and every issue. Fred Cox researched the statistics surrounding the threshold levels and discovered that the 60% threshold was the balance that sent equal candidates to a Primary and a nomination at the convention.
When Enid Mickelson made a push for a higher threshold, I created this flyer to make the point of “fairness.”
After we won, the SB 54 challenge began and the law passed. Funds were raised for its defense. Many long and hard hours were devoted to the preservation of the constitutional caucus and hard-earned funds from each of the counties. One of our recently deceased party workers, Rick Votaw, was extremely generous personally.
We served on committees to improve the caucus and we continued to combat the very media outlets that benefit from a Primary and the large media buys necessary to win those elections.
The legislative sponsors insisted that SB 54 was a “compromise” but we knew, and it can be verified by reviewing the original Caplin-Drysdale document, that SB 54 and CMV delivered the same outcome. I produced this flyer that was distributed in several counties and to the delegate email list. This flyer includes some of the subject headings of blog posts I researched and distributed to SCC members and delegates over the course of this long process:
The State Central Committee now faces some important decisions.
- Does the Utah Republican Party continue to preserve the constitutional process or does it relinquish its right to determine its membership as a private corporation? Will Utah go the way of other states, such as Virginia, that have weakened the caucus to the degree that the political parties are mere “endorsement” bodies and lack any real strength? As such, those states have lost the edge and the majorities have moved to the Democrats.
- Does the party demand that legal counsel’s E&O insurance cover the legal expenses that the party would have been awarded had the deadlines been met as restitution for what the judge determined was worth denying the legal fees?
- Where do each of the SCC members and the national committee man and woman and executive committee members stand on preserving the caucus? We need to know. It is appropriate that we ask some serious questions: What happened with the national committeeman and woman elections? I understand that the previous committee people told the state party chairman that they were running again. Then within minutes of the filing deadline, he received a phone call from them saying they would not be running again, and then within minutes of that call, he received a call that two others had filed. I supported both of these people when they ran for office. But we need to know why this happened. We also need to know whether they support CMV. They are brother and sister and the record shows that the sister’s husband gave $25,000 in opposition to the Party.
- Finally, in this contentious election season, it is critically important for those who serve in elected Republican positions from Chairman, Executive Committee and State Central Committee, to publicly state whether they support the Republican nominee for President. We need all hands on deck to prevent the alternative from being elected.
If you have any questions, I will be at the meeting Saturday, August 27, 2016 and will be happy to answer your questions.

PS – In principle, this contentious election season and the warring factions of a two party system are the result of elected officials and citizens that held self-interest and special interest above the Constitution. They abandoned the original document. They went against George Washington’s warning and plea NOT to create two parties (as England had) and after the Adams administration, they began the process of creating a two party system. To quote a Republican candidate: “It IS rigged.” It is rigged against the people in that the 17th, 16th and 12th Amendments have created a democracy in the election process rather than maintained the republic.
Where are all those candidates that professed to be “constitutionalists?” Why are they not standing for the checks and balances and separation of powers both vertically and horizontally that the framers created?
I was elected Presidential Elector, one of six for Utah. It is a farce. The original electoral college was destroyed in the Aaron Burr-Thomas Jefferson election. If the original electoral college were functioning today, we would not be sitting in this body spending money and grooming candidates in how to pay-to-play in this system. We would not have candidates that can’t even pay their mortgages or sell their homes for what they paid for them that serve as Senators and then leave office as multi-millionaires.
Instead, if the original electoral college were in place today, there would be NO parties. The people would not elect a president.
The states would elect Presidential Electors equal to the number of the state’s congressional delegation (Utah would have six). There would be 535 electors that would gather to NOMINATE people that are principled and qualified to lead. Each state’s delegation would vote for TWO names to send to the US Senate for tallying.
The US Senate would then send the TOP FIVE candidates to the U.S. House. Each state would cast its vote by delegation and would get 1 vote. The top vote-getter would be elected President and the second place candidate would be Vice President.
The US Senate would not be elected by popular vote. It would be elected by the representatives the people in the state had elected – the state legislature.
The only body that would be elected by the people was the U.S. House of Representatives, the “people’s house.”
Among the most egregious perversions along with the 17th Amendment during the Democratic Wilson administration was the decision to give government the power and authority to steal personal property, rather than to ask other foreign interests to provide revenue. With the 16th Amendment, the people gave Congress a blank check to dig its own grave in debt and bloated spending. The solution is NOT to further amend and pervert the Constitution. It is to seriously examine that original document and to find the wisdom already in it and to RESTORE it.
The founders feared and deplored democracy. They recognized from history that it always had a contentious and volatile ending. Do we not see that this is the path we are pursuing?
The only level of deliberation among citizens in which a democracy worked was at the very closest level to the people. Democracy worked only among small numbers of people. THAT was the neighborhood caucus. That system itself has been perverted because those that elevated their own interests above Liberty, the Constitution and the Republic sought to overthrow it as soon as it was ratified.
Is a nation too big to fail? I think it is just the opposite. Its bigness, its consolidation of power, is its failure.
Did you know that the population of Utah now exceeds the population of all 13 states at the time the union was formed? Utah now has over 3 million people residing within its state borders. And Utah is one of the smaller states in the union.
In 1789 the population of the 13 states was estimated to be around 2.5 million. The founders and framers believed THAT was too big for democracy. What have we done? Here we are fighting with each other and with other friends and neighbors in a two-party system that now has a populace so angry and frustrated, that if we aren’t careful, mass persuasion may assume mob rule and yield to anarchy for resolution.
If the members of this party, of any party – especially the Constitution Party – want to save this Republic, they need only look at the original document and its brilliant bicameral form of government and system of elections that separated out the special and self-interest to prevent consolidation of power, as the solution. All else is a distraction.
Our goal over the next four years should be to educate the public on these principles and to dissolve the parties and to plug up the gaping holes in this broken and sinking ship before it’s too late.
On Saturday, September 27, 2016, the Utah State Central Committee is meeting. A discussion regarding the ongoing legal challenge to defend a constitutional-representative form of elections versus the legislature’s unconstitutional interference with the First Amendment rights of a private corporation to assemble, establish its rules and set membership qualifications is scheduled. This summary is intended especially for […]Read More
Absolutely. All they need to do is to refuse to support the nominee by handsomely funding a spoiler, disrupt a few electoral votes (such as Utah’s six) and Hillary Clinton could win.
Introducing Evan McMullin. Political pedigree check: Ex-CIA, CFR, Goldman Sachs, House Republican Conference Policy Director, globalist and establishment insider. Morality Check: Mormon (i.e. squeaky clean).
The money is John Kingston, Romney bundler and “Better for America” funder. “Stand Up America” is a McMullin SuperPAC led by Kahlil Byrd, third party PAC organizer and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, largely responsible for the U.S. economic disaster and unwise foreign war entanglements leading to the rise of terrorism. Chris Ashby is the third-party ballot access attorney.
McMullin is targeting Utah first and is now on the ballot. It doesn’t matter that he has missed ballot deadlines, lacks time to organize, and probably won’t qualify for debates. Winning is not the goal.
Throughout the primaries, Romney and Kasich team-tagged, accusing Trump of flip-flops, while they themselves flip-flopped from endorsement to endorsement, attempting to keep Trump from reaching the threshold. By Utah’s caucus, with Kasich’s blessing, Romney endorsed Utah’s favorite, Ted Cruz.
After Cruz dropped out, a handful of Utah #NeverTrump-#ForeverCruz delegates launched an unsuccessful attempt to unbind delegates and disrupt the nomination at the national convention. Others boycotted the event and refused to endorse the nominee. Somehow they have rationalized it’s better to elect Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump.
It’s difficult to imagine that Republican leaders would actually carry out this strategy to sacrifice the Supreme Court to Hillary, and so dramatically damage their children’s future. Her appointments would continue to pervert the Constitution with judicial activism. Gone would be religious liberty and Second Amendment rights. Is this worth clearing the deck for one of their own in four years?
In 1964 I was a Goldwater Girl at the convention in San Francisco’s Cow Palace. Ironically, so was Hillary. George and Mitt Romney were also there. As with Ted Cruz, candidates George Romney and Nelson Rockefeller both refused to endorse Barry Goldwater. They cited his “extremism,” that he “did not support the platform,” and that he was an “embarrassment” because of his “white southern policy” (racism, today). Goldwater conservatives knew the Left had co-opted the civil rights movement into big government welfare entitlements taxpayers could not afford.
Richard Nixon wisely endorsed Goldwater at the convention and campaigned hard for him, while both Romney and Rockefeller failed in their presidential bids and never recovered.
Not only did Goldwater lose, Utah voted for LBJ. Those establishment Republicans were responsible for LBJ’s Great Society and Goldwater was right. Most notably, it was Nixon who won four years later.
The 1964 parallels are undeniable. Utah is once again a target, viewed as a possible swing state. The global establishment from all directions is funding McMullin’s campaign with millions of dollars for ballot access legal challenges in key electoral vote states.
If we care about the Constitution and our children’s liberty, emotion must give way to reason to unite to defeat Hillary. We urge Mitt Romney, Senators Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and all others who are helping to elect Hillary Clinton to stand up and take the lead.
Like it or not, the United States has a two-party system. It’s a contest between Trump or Hillary. A strong spoiler will definitely elect Hillary. Think about it. Our children deserve better than another four years of Barack Obama.
About Evan McMullin
What these SuperPAC organizers are saying:
An interview with Evan McMullin:
The New Republic sees this disrupt strategy as the only upshot.
Can an election be disrupted with a well-funded SuperPAC, the collaboration of establishment #NeverTrump and conservative #ForeverCruz, and a third party candidate missing on the ballot in 26 states? Absolutely. All they need to do is to refuse to support the nominee by handsomely funding a spoiler, disrupt a few electoral votes (such as Utah’s […]Read More
