Two Amazing Christmas Videos #sharethegift

0 No Comments

Earlier this year we celebrated the marriage of our beautiful – and only – daughter to a charming and handsome young man. It was a perfect day for the uniting of two families – in every way. Every single family member was there, and what a reunion it was. I could hardly believe how the years have yielded such a large group from only two people.

A beautiful thing, a memory forever. Marriage. Family.

TJP_5210

I once sat in a very beautiful room where all was so silent I could hear the tinkling of the tiny crystals from the gigantic chandelier suspended above from the high cathedral ceiling, far from the madding crowd outside. Again, recently I found myself in another similar room with another gorgeous crystal chandelier above. In the quiet, I looked up and reflected on this season, where we’ve been and where we’re going.

Christmas 2014 began with a jolt. Yet another Black Friday, people trampling over other people, grabbing, clutching, falling over, and clamoring like toddlers for that one special gift before it disappeared from the shelves and someone else got to it first.

Not a trace of why.

Why? What has become of Christmas?

We near the end of a jolting year for believers. People of faith everywhere are discovering that we can no longer be, as Professor Robert George stated in his address at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, “comfortable Catholics” or “socially acceptable Christians.”

Instead, we’re learning that “believing” demands sacrifice and that at times it’s painful – and costly. We stand back and ponder the swiftness of our losses and ask, “How did this happen?”

If we are honest with ourselves, we must acknowledge that we may even have earned that special pedestal of persecution upon which we are now perched by having been too asleep or too pre-occupied and distracted, or by being too ashamed of the Gospel for far too long, or too afraid to offend another by defending those beliefs.

In the last few days of this insane holiday rush, let us push the pause button for just a few moments and take time to reflect: Who are we, really? What do we believe, really? And why Christmas, really?

Here are two extraordinary videos, one music and the other, the written word – both visual masterpieces. For me, this is “why.” It’s astonishing that this is all so controversial in today’s social climate.

Angels We Have Heard On High with The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens and David Archuleta

He Is The Gift #sharethegift

It is my sincere prayer to people everywhere that we will remember. Remember why HE is the Gift.

Whether Catholic, Evangelical, Protestant, or Mormon, in our doctrinal differences there is universal understanding of Redemption. In the final analysis, He is the only Gift that can change hearts and change the world. Let us proudly stand together as witnesses of His name at all times, in all things and in all places – no matter the cost.

Blessings to you and your family this Christmas Season and throughout the New Year.

Now, go #sharethegift.

Faithfully,
Cherilyn Eagar

A Tribute to Senator Tom Coburn

0 No Comments

American Leadership Fund

tom-coburn-1In 2009 I had begun a remarkable journey as the first Republican woman in Utah to run for U.S. Senate, admittedly an uphill challenge in and of itself. In that process, I traveled to Washington, D.C. on several occasions to meet with and speak to conservatives in Congress and grassroots leaders.

On one of those occasions, I was running back-to-back meetings that my scheduler had so effectively organized. Senators Tom Coburn and Jim DeMint had an interest in visiting with me.

I wish I could say that I won that race.  I didn’t.  But it is because of that visit to Senator Coburn’s office that three of us who challenged the incumbent were able to defeat him.  Now this country has one of the best constitutional conservatives in recent memory who entered the race months after that visit with Senator Coburn:  Mike Lee.

I will always be grateful to Senator Coburn for what he did for me – for all of us, really.  Here’s the story.

I’ve been in Senatorial offices before on previous D.C. trips to advocate for conservative causes, but this was the first time I was entering a Senator’s office with the possibility of become one of the club, as it’s known. How to become one of the mostly boys club was seriously on my mind.

Not only was that on my mind, the surreal experience was unfolding. When media asked me who I would most be like in the U.S. Senate, I always said that my two heroes were Senator Coburn and Senator DeMint. That really said it all. The sad truth is that there were only a handful – five literally – that I could call “conservative” in that good-old-boys and girls club.

I sat down in the lovely sitting room of Senator Coburn’s office and waited. When he entered the room, he was friendly and welcoming. It was clearly an interview. And I was ready.

We had much in common, other than our conservative ideology. He was a medical doctor, an OB-GYN. My deceased father had been a urologist. His mother’s middle name was Joy. My middle name was Joy. He represented Oklahoma and later American Leadership Fund would cover the expenses to represent Oklahoma in the 10th Circuit Court and Supreme Court defending Marriage between a man and a woman.

Also, he had a daughter who was a classically trained singer. I had been classically trained by a Metropolitan opera singer, Margaret Romaine, and had spent many years performing in professional regional musical theatre in L.A., Dallas and New York City, as well as with touring companies.

Senator Coburn made me feel so at home and comfortable that I forgot it was an “interview” and that I was being closely scrutinized and questioned on the issues. I was aware of the incumbent’s record as the 9th most liberal Republican in the U.S. Senate. Everyone in Utah runs as a “conservative.” If you’re a liberal, however, you run as a “mainstream conservative.” That’s code.

But until that meeting I was not aware of how desperately my opponent’s colleagues wanted him retired from the Senate.

Suddenly Senator Coburn asked, “Have you met with Senator McCain yet?” When I said, “No” he jumped up and said, “We need to get you an appointment right away. How long will you be in town?” “Until tomorrow,” I responded.

He disappeared from the room and then a few minutes later returned. He walked up to me and said, “Just yesterday I saw Senator McCain have words with your opponent [Senator Bob Bennett] – he was red-faced, and shaking his finger at him because your senator voted for yet another earmark. He said, ‘Bob, if you keep this up, I’m going to endorse that woman in your race.”

Although it was probably meant as a demeaning threat – to vote for a woman – I’ll take it. We sat back down waiting for the next move. A staff member walked in with a notebook. Senator Coburn’s research staff had compiled a three ring binder for me to take back to Utah. It had Senator Bennett’s entire spending record. Incredible. Information that would have taken weeks for our team to compile. It was priceless.

Then we got word that Senator DeMint’s chief of staff wanted to meet with me while we waited for the okay from Senator McCain.  I began to realize that he was really the leader of the Republican Party, having been the nominee for president in 2004 and I was going through three interviews. My campaign manager David Kyle Herring and I sat around a table in an outer office and Senator DeMint’s chief of staff grilled me on every aspect of our election system in Utah.

It was a perfect storm for ousting the incumbent, and the best bang for the buck. Our literature was aggressive and cited Senator Bennett’s promises he did not keep.  Among them were to reduce the tax code to the size of a post card, his damning position on the banking committee during the time the financial market melted down and his liberal record ranking him in the top 5 of those who received the most campaign contributions from Freddie Mac.  We also brought to light that his health care proposal was really “ObamaCare Lite” and that it included a provision to mandate abortion services to insurance companies that wanted to participate.  Many delegates in Utah were shocked and didn’t believe me at first.  My staff had to clip the text from the bill and literally show it to them.

Then word came that Senator McCain was ready to see me. We were nearly running down the hallways and up an elevator. I was surprised to learn that I towered over Senator McCain. He shook my hand, and we sat in his sitting room and again, another interview.  After a few minutes he leaned back and said to his staff, “It’s been a while since I’ve been in Utah. I think maybe it’s time for me to make an appearance again.”

I got the impression he wanted a response, and so I was honest, “Well, that would be great, but I’ll need to discuss it with my campaign staff.”  (I was secretly dying a thousand deaths because in Utah John McCain is considered moderate to liberal and that could be death to my campaign.)

All right, so my inexperience was showing. I got the impression that people don’t hesitate when John McCain makes an offer to come to your state to endorse and raise money for you. That’s what was happening and I probably failed that test. Nevertheless, all agreed that if he did come to Utah, it would be best if he were flanked by his more conservative colleagues – Senators Coburn and DeMint.

We expressed our concern to Senator DeMint’s office, and they understood.  But I was never sure whether Senator McCain took so kindly to my less than exuberant response to his offer.  This was internal warfare in the Senate and I was the tool, and that was okay.

Tom CoburnI have never forgotten Senator Coburn’s kindness. I still have that three ring binder. It went with me everywhere and it was the proof that the incumbent we were trying to unseat needed to be retired. It gave the campaign a real advantage.

Senator Tom Coburn is a man of his word. He has struggled with the recurrence of cancer more than once in his life. But he is not a quitter. Health and family should always trump personal influence or gain, even if in the highest office of this land.  I have great respect for that priority in his personal life.  He had promised only to serve three terms, and he was nearing completion of his last term when he announced he would be stepping down early.

What a true conservative he was. He was a champion of Life and marriage between a man and a woman.  He did not shrink from the opportunity to stand up for limited government in every way.

But with this onset of prostate cancer, I understand his need to retire early from the U.S. Senate. What a loss it will be to all of us to not have him there as 2015 rolls around.

My only regret from having lost that long-shot challenge is that I did not have the opportunity know Senator Coburn on a more personal level, and to fight my father’s fight against socialized medicine, one of my passions.  But most of all that I have not had an opportunity to thank him personally for changing my life and for the many lives he has changed all across this nation with his commitment to personal integrity, an ideal that has been all but lost in Congress.

That’s why watching the video of his farewell address is so important and truly amazing. If only Congress behaved as this Senator did.  Will they listen to his advice?

If you’ve got four minutes, here are some emotional highlights.

But if you have about 15 minutes, start at 15:28 and you will see a giant of a man preaching to his colleagues about how just ONE Senator can stop everything. Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee did precisely that recently when they stood in opposition to the Senate’s passing of the $1.1 trillion budget. The media, and their own colleagues, have treated them as schoolboys and “amateurs” for simply doing what the Founders expect of all 100 of them. #shameful

So I suggest watching this 28 minute video in its entirety. It will not only show you the kind of courage and leadership the U.S. Senate desperately needs, it will teach you what it means to keep an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against enemies, foreign and domestic. He explains why the “magic number is not 60″ and why “the most important number is ONE.”

That ONE will departing on January 2, 2015. We pray that the other 99 will listen to his sound advice and remember his example. We pray that they will be humbled in their arrogance with which the majority has been afflicted and that they will stop criticizing the newer members that are following Senator Coburn’s advice – Senator Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul.

God bless Tom Coburn. He will be sorely missed.

Happy Everything!

Happy Everything
I received a multicultural greeting card from a longtime and very talented friend who lives in New York City and who is in the middle of the Broadway acting community of which I was once a part.  She’s one of my favorite people, very successful on Broadway and regional theatre, and I always look forward to her unusually creative Christmas cards.

This year it had a blurred background of a lighted something (a tree in Times Square or Rockefeller Center?) – anyway, holiday festive – and the words “Happy Everything” – Love, Candy and David.

Immediately I knew why she had done this. Because I know New York, and the Broadway community.  As Cole Porter once titled his classic Broadway show, “Anything Goes.” That’s New York.

The cultural diversity and multiculturalism of that city is boundless. So how do you send out a Christmas card? Or even a Hannukah card? Why not Happy Holidays or Season’s Greetings? Naw. Too cliched.

So there you have it.  “Happy Everything!”

The Utah Compact, Obama’s Amnesty Executive Order v. Real Solutions

0 No Comments

American Leadership Fund

On numerous occasions, President Obama has vowed to take unilateral action, if Congress does not, and he has. Just before Thanksgiving, the president stood before Americans and explained his comprehensive, amnesty executive order to 4.5 million illegal aliens. He has no constitutional authority to do this. Congress must exercise its constitutional authority to reign in the executive branch. It is high time that the lawsuit Republicans have brought against him be heard.

By now, it should be evident that neither side of the aisle has the will to what they have been charged constitutionally to do. Follow the money. I would not hesitate to suggest that there is corruption at the core. More votes for Democrats. More cheap labor for Republicans. More revenue for the U.S. and South American countries in the drug industry. And the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the “winner,” even if short-lived. Because if this greed continues, this nation will crumble from the moral decay that indebtedness and entitlement bring.

Since the U.S. decided to abort babies – 1 million a year since 1973, are we surprised that the U.S. now needs to replace our shrinking population with illegal aliens? This is a disastrous state of affairs.

Chris Herrod’s Extraordinary Analysis of President Obama’s Amnesty Executive Order

Former Utah Representative Chris Herrod, whose wife is a legal immigrant from Ukraine, has been willing to take the heat among his peers to speak truth. He has left no prisoners behind in this review of what Utah, an otherwise conservative state, did to create a sanctuary state that is now reaping some serious consequences and he makes a compelling case for why that unconstitutional “Utah Compact” legislation that President Obama has embraced should be repealed in Utah before it gets worse.

Chris has created a series of short videos on his new blog site www.unconcon.com that each analyze the fallacies in the President’s address unveiling his amnesty order. This is worth the watch, and I hope that it will make you aware of the damage our elected officials have done to law-abiding citizens in this state. Read More

Why Medicaid Expansion is a Bad Idea

0 No Comments

 

American Leadership Fund

I’ll make this short. Medicaid expansion is a bad idea because:

1. Socialized medicine doesn’t work.
2. The state exchanges are going down – and whether they will go down with a bang or a whimper by 2015 is the remaining question.
3. Medicaid expansion is an unfunded mandate waiting to happen.

Where Does Your State Stand on Medicaid Expansion?

http://www.hivhealthreform.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/current-status-of-the-medicaid-expansion-decisions-healthreform1.png

As of August 2014, twenty-one states are saying “No” to Obamacare. They are doing it by refusing to expand Medicaid. Utah is one of three yet “undecided.”

Meanwhile,  former CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson is suing the federal government to obtain records that she has failed to get through numerous FOIA requests in order to get to the bottom of the security questions swirling around the system that Congress has failed to answer.

Jonathan Gruber would like you to know that you are too “stupid” and they were counting on that and the lack of transparency to get this monster through the door without anyone noticing it.  Here’s a video worth watching – GruberGate in Two Minutes.

The three necessary legs of the socialized medicine stool are the establishment of

1) a state or national online exchange to drive people to the most cost effective choice – Medicaid;

2) the Accountable Care Organization – a glorified, government-run HMO; and

3) Medicaid Expansion.

Without all three, socialized, national health care – regardless of its title – cannot be implemented. States such as Texas understand this fact. Other states, for the most part run by socialist governors and legislatures, have already welcomed Obamacare. Three states are still in “open debate.”

One is a state that many would consider the most conservative state in the nation – Utah.  At least that is how the voters vote in a presidential election year.  But when it comes to local politics, it’s as if there is a total disconnect.

Why this is important to you is that Utah’s Governor Gary Herbert was elected to Vice Chair of the National Governors Association (a union/lobbyist group in DC where a lot of mischief takes place).  Earlier in 2014 the Washington Post also named Governor Gary Herbert was the most popular governor in the nation with a 73% approval rating.

Conservatives who work closely with Governor Herbert at the Utah legislature will tell you that he votes consistently with liberal policies and that he is controlled by the liberal unions that have a stranglehold on the otherwise conservative population of Utah.  Among those unions are the National Education Association’s state affiliate the Utah Education Association, the Utah PTA, the Utah Hospital Association and the Utah Medical Association.

The latter two trade groups are both pro-ACA (Obamacare) and ACO (Accountable Care Organization – glorifed, government run HMOs, a failure from the 1970’s-1980s.)  See here.  They claim a “Utah Solution” but unless Utah joins with other states that are suing the federal government, it is doomed to be regulated by the federal government, just as it is with education reforms it claims are “Utah’s core.”

In fact, in 2012 I personally watched as bill after bill emerged out of committee and passed out of the legislature setting up every facet of what is needed to establish nationalized medicine in Utah.  Crickets.

Utah’s supposedly conservative governor has just announced that he is launching his campaign for Medicaid Expansion.  Utah’s conservatives who are paying attention are scratching their heads.  They agree with Ronald Reagan that Medicaid is socialized medicine. Just because health care is implemented at the state level does not mean it is a good or better plan.  It is controlled from the top.

In fact, a state that agrees to Medicaid expansion is also agreeing to sign on to federal funding which goes away, and then the state is left with another huge unfunded mandate it cannot afford to pay.

So much for calling it the “Affordable” Care Act.

Forbes Magazine contributors Jonathan Ingram, Nic Horton and  Josh Archambault argue that the Healthy Utah Plan helps the able-bodied while those who are truly in need are ignored.  It’s patterned after the Arkansas plan that that state is now trying to abandon, and it has no work requirement.

While the money in the short term is enticing, Dr. Alieta Eck was on my radio show recently and described Medicaid Expansion as buying a baby elephant because it came with a two years supply of food.  It’s an unfunded entitlement in the making.   You can listen to the podcast starting at about 15 minutes into the recording.

The Truth About Home Schooling

0 No Comments

American Leadership Fund
The debate continues. Which is best? Public school? Private school? Home school?

In Utah, a Republican lawmaker is recommending an increase in taxes to pay for better education. With representatives such as this, who needs Democrats?  Read more.

The controversy over privacy, testing and common core social engineering/social justice curricula of the Left invading the classroom will not be improved or eliminated with more funding.  It will be harmed.  Utah’s SAGE tests are developed through the American Institutes of Research, which describes itself on its website as a behavioral testing company.  This is the testing company that most states are using.  Columnist Paul Rolly wrote that I was incorrect, but here it is from the AIR website, screenshot taken Wednesday, November 25, 2014:

AIR Behavioral testing

It is the influx of millions from the corporate and non-profit world on the Left and the Right that is destroying education. That’s a bold statement, but we have already backed it up with numerous articles on this blog site which you can search.

The Home School Fact Check

Take a look at these facts, and then defend the opinion that home school is not a superior alternative to public education.

Homeschool Domination
Created by: CollegeAtHome.com

Why then does home school come under such criticism? Because it’s a direct threat to public school funding.  With a 75% rise in home schooled children, it is a big threat indeed.  We recommend this option above all others.  It is the only option available that will not cost taxpayers more money.  It is the best option to keep the federal government from manipulating your child’s attitudes and behaviors.  Remember, the test controls the curriculum, and AIR  is committed to the “diversity and inclusion” social justice agenda of the LGBT lobby.

Again, Paul Rolly likes to mock those who make these truthful statements.  So from the AIR website, another screen shot taken Wednesday, November 25, 2014:

AIR Behavioral Inclusion

As for funding public schools in Utah, parents and taxpayers do have another option:  take back state lands.  So much talk.  So little action.

If the federal government does not see its unequal treatment of state lands by looking at the obvious map, then Utah and other states in a similar situation simply need to exercise its rights under the 10th Amendment.  If the Cliven Bundy family can do it, surely elected  officials can.  Or are they all rhetoric?

screen shot 2014-04-25 at 3.23.47 pm.png

We will keep you posted and we will share who’s who.  Who are the talkers and who are the doers?  I know some definite DOERS.  They are Rep. Curtis Oda and Rep. Mike Noel.  God bless them both.  

Rep. Ken Ivory has done excellent research, but his legal background may be holding him back from taking the Bundy approach, otherwise known as the “Just Say No” approach.  It may be that an attorney that suggests or acts on that truly constitutional approach would be disbarred.  

But that’s another story.  The ACLU fox is guarding that accreditation henhouse at the American Bar Association and its state affiliates, who also accredit the law schools around the country teaching law students anything but original intent.  #shameful

Choice in Education
There has been so much talk of “choice” and “charter” schools for the past 30 years. We now see that it is just another Trojan Horse and counterfeit. Why would conservatives who love the free market back a plan that actually destroys the free market? Once you subsidize an enterprise, you automatically put all the private enterprises that do not want government subsidy in an unfair competitive disadvantage. It’s tough competing with free. Socialized medicine has taught us that lesson.

We have choice – it’s called public education, private education and home school.

Houston Pastors Show Way to Defeat Non-Discrimination Laws

American Leadership Fund

Recently the Salt Lake Tribune published an opinion editorial I wrote about our experience in Houston with the five pastors whose sermons – and all the communications between them and their church members – were subpoenaed by the Houston Mayor. It’s an incredible story of religious liberty under fire and what happens when people of faith take a strong stand and do not remain silent. Read this article and then watch those five passionate pastors raise the roof for religious liberty.

Mormon and Evangelical Leaders on Marriage at the Vatican

American Leadership Fund

This is a clip of Elder Henry Eyring, of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, speaking to the Vatican earlier this week on the importance of marriage. It was a very touching tribute to his own marriage and his wife and how together through the years they have become one. A strong testimony of the importance of giving greater emphasis to Marriage between a man and a woman.

I also appreciated Pastor Greg Johnson of www.standingtogether.org who forwarded this humorous and action-oriented clip of Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church of Lake Forest, California. He was speaker #28. He said that after all the other speakers had already given his speech about the importance of marriage, he rewrote it to discuss “what to do about it.” Listen to his action plan! It’s right on target.

Please sign our petition in support of the U.S. Constitution and state sovereignty over marriage laws. We appreciate your support.
