How Phyllis Schlafly Defeated the Equal Rights Amendment

0 No Comments

This is an excellent video that recounts the events of the early 1970s and 1980s, a time when Phyllis Schlafly became the leader of the pro-family movement and against all odds was able to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment.  Three generations of women have been propagandized and have not heard the true story.  I was in Chicago from 1977-1979 and was on the front lines as a delegate at the International Womens Year.  I am a witness to what Phyllis shares in this short history.

Why every American should support Donald Trump

0 No Comments

I delivered this speech at a Trump rally on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at the Utah State Capitol.  Please share.

I am a mother and a grandmother, the first Republican woman to run for US Senate in Utah, a conservative talk show host, one of Utah’s Republican State Electors … and I am a Mormon.  I am here today to proudly support Donald J. Trump for President of the United States because he is the moral choice.

We’re not voting for the Pope. We’re voting for the President. As Phyllis Schlafly, the First Lady of the conservative movement and my long time friend and mentor, once said, “Like it or not, we have a two party system and Jesus is NOT on the ballot.”

And Evan McMullin, you are not Utah’s “savior.” In fact, you are stealing votes from the moral choice and giving them to the crooked choice, and you’ve admitted it. How principled is THAT?

Phyllis passed away at age 92 just one day before the launch of her final book, The Conservative Case for Trump. She endorsed him when it was not easy. She knew it‘s not about personality; it’s about the principles.

She said, “I asked him to stand by the Republican platform, because we have the best conservative platform we’ve ever had. He endorses it, he will stand by it, and he is a real conservative.”

To my colleagues in the mainstream media and their pollsters: This is not about you and your feeble attempts to manipulate the people with your spin and collusion. You have been exposed, and it’s because of Donald Trump’s tenacity and leadership that you have been brought down. He is the wrecking ball we’ve needed.

And Gloria Allred, we know who YOU are. No one condones assault. This election is not about you and your drama, and your opportunistic and phony charges against Republican men – charges that have been debunked every election cycle.  This is about our children’s future. It’s about the Supreme Court and who will appoint the next four justices – and many more judges and thousands of Washington D.C. bureaucrats.

Let’s look at what’s at stake for our children: We can maintain our “high moral ground” to vote for NeverTrump, while more babies are aborted, our second amendment rights vanish, and the Supreme Court is forever changed. In fact, according to one of Trump’s advisors, former Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, your NeverTrump vote is treason to the Pro-Life movement.

Do we want another former ACLU president, anti-god, -family and -country Ruth Bader Ginsburg, appointed by Bill Clinton?

Or Trump’s commitment to an originalist, respecter of First and Second amendment rights, such as Antonin Scalia, appointed by Ronald Reagan?

Do we want Clinton’s partial birth abortion choices?

Or Trump’s pro-Life choices?

Do we want Clinton’s war on religious liberty?

Or Trump’s championing of the repeal of the Johnson Amendment, restoring the First Amendment to religious institutions and non-profits?

Do we want to continue the Clinton’s globalist sell-out of production and jobs, undermining our rule of law?

Or do we want Donald Trump to fix or eliminate NAFTA, withdraw from TPP, and bring those jobs back home and keep our Constitution the Supreme law of the land?

Do we want Clinton’s open borders, flooding this land with too many that hate America, bringing crime and drugs to harm our children?

Or do we want Trump to make America great again, welcoming immigrants that love this country?

Do we want Clinton, the originator of the unconstitutional single-payer system – called HillaryCare – back in the White House?

Or do we want Donald Trump’s plan to repeal and replace the disastrous ObamaCare?

Do we want to continue the Clinton Corporate Crony machine in Washington DC padding their foundation pockets?

Or do we want Donald Trump to drain that swamp?

Hillary, you tell us that you want to solve our problems with more bureaucracy and government solutions. But I have a message for you: You ARE the problem. Donald Trump IS the solution!

When Mr. Trump spoke at Phyllis Schlafly’s funeral he said, “I’m sure that she’s telling us to keep up the fight. Phyllis, we love you, we miss you, and we will never, ever let you down.”

And that, my friends is why Donald Trump IS the moral choice for America!

Together we will make America great again! God bless Donald Trump and God bless America!

Who is Evan McMullin?

0 No Comments

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.

Who Is McMullin?

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 been vetted and the election is around the corner, it’s time to analyze this presidential candidate.  After many hours researching and documenting rumors and stories posted on the Internet, I’ve narrowed it down to the best nuggets. I found some rumors circulating, such as a fake Form 990 expense sheet claiming funding from the Clinton Foundation.

I’ve posted the information on the blog site www.CherilynEagar.com and discussed my radio show, AM 630 Salt Lake City, www.KTALKMedia.com 10-Noon MT daily.   The sources are listed below.

According to Washington Post, Evan McMullin grew up in Washington, his mother worked hard “to make ends meet.  She later married a woman, whom she now lives with.”

He’s 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.

  1. 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, you will love Evan. He documented it on a recent Tedx Talks speech. [See below.]
  2. 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 likely nominees.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 that was 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.
  8. If you like Republican candidates that give a wink and a nod to top Democratic strategists and establishment SuperPACS, such as CFR Kahlil Byrd’s PAC – Stand Up America;  the vulgar GOP media strategist Rick Wilson;  as well as the establishment elite Romney’s bundlers John Kingston and Joel Searby – Better for America PAC, you will love Evan. They’re 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.”
  9. If you worship Mormon talk show host Glenn Beck and believe that “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” because McMillin himself has admitted, Utah needs a spoiler, to steal your electoral votes, and to deliver the White House for a second go around, to the biggest criminals in national history, the Clintons, then this guy Evan McMullin is your man.
  10. If you agree with Beck that this candidate Evan McMullin is the rising star to lead a new party with new ideas that you support, vote Evan McMullin.

To all my Mormon friends and moral superiors, I say the world is watching Utah.  They don’t look at this outcome as a “high moral ground” choice.  If fact, they are disturbed that a culture of morality could support an immoral outcome.

This candidacy is a hoax, a fraud upon this next generation’s leaders.  It’s merely the old establishment guard cleverly rebranding a “New Millennial Neo-Con” movement.

You can take your “moral high ground” and walk it all the way to the ballot box, my Mormon friends.  In the end, you will need to OWN the result.  Do you really want the nation to hold, you, my Mormon friends, responsible for more babies being murdered through abortion, a vanishing 2nd amendment, and a forever-changed Supreme Court all too willing to strip away our religious liberty.  Indeed, this is the platform Clinton pledged to support in the final debate.

In 1964, sore losers George Romney and Nelson Rockefeller duped Utah into believing it would be better to vote for LBJ than to elect Goldwater, but will Utah be duped again in 2016?

http://cherilyneagar.com/2016/08/spoiler-alert-will-republicans-repeat-1964/

If you think this is all okay because, well … he’s a Mormon and Glenn Beck said so, then don’t just love Evan McMullin. Vote for him.

On the other hand, I think Utah is smarter than this.  I think they’ll do the right thing and cast their votes for the King Cyrus of our time.

The Moral Case for Trump

Pass the potatoes and green jello, please.

UPDATE:  October 26, 2016 – Provo Town Hall Facebook LIVE

UPDATE:  October 29, 2016 – I’ve been with some of the nation’s top faith leaders this weekend managing a conference in Houston.  They have asked what is going on in Utah.  The “higher moral ground” and the attitude that some Mormons have that they must cast a principled vote, even if Clinton wins, is not looked upon with respect.  Speaking of “voting my conscience” I would rather die than allow a candidate to be elected that I know will continue to maim and murder babies before they take their first breath.  To know that Clinton stated in the final debate where she stands on this and marriage and gun control and the Constitution, and to vote in any way that would enable her election, is the most unprincipled vote of all.

We all have the free will to vote as we choose, but we are all responsible for the outcome, to the best of our knowledge as we have studied it.

 

UPDATE October 31, 2016 – Evan McMullin dodges the question “Who do you think the worst president would be, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?” You won’t believe his answer.

Gloria Allred: You need therapy. You did to Romney what you are doing to Trump

0 No Comments

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.

allred-with-meg-whitmans-undocumented-workerNow, 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:

press-release-trump-summer-zervos

Response from Donald J. Trump:

djt-statement-summer-zervos-2016-10-15-at-3-05-34-pm
The other claim from Rachel Crooks has been debunked.

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 […]

Sorting through authentic and fake Internet info and biased media during the last days [of the Election]

0 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.

Spoiler Alert:  Will Republicans Repeat 1964?

The Moral Case for Trump

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.

Utah Values

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 […]

The Moral Case for Trump

0 No Comments

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.”

[Read my tribute to Phyllis Schlafly.]

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.

[Read more about this candidate in an editorial published August 24, 2016 – Spoiler Alert! Will Republicans Repeat 1964?]

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.

[See Trump’s policies here.]

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.

(Two lists, men and women]

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.

Oscar Award Winning Producer Gerald Molen Makes Plea for Trump

0 No Comments

jerry-molenI 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.

God bless.

Phyllis Schlafly, The First Lady of the Conservative Movement – and My Friend – Is Gone

Comments Off on Phyllis Schlafly, The First Lady of the Conservative Movement – and My Friend – Is Gone

56When I was in college my mother showed me my first Phyllis Schlafly Report.  Growing up in the 1960’s in Hollywood, California was tough. The volatile cultural friction was all around me, and I felt more and more isolated from the hippie generation. Phyllis and her report became my political and cultural anchor, along with my faith in God. She had a way of summarizing complex issues in those four pages. I’ve received her reports ever since, and amazingly, I have not known her to be wrong. Looking back, she has been a prophetic statement in a lost world of feminism. It has been uncanny. The feminists scoffed at her predictions of “unisex” bathrooms and women in the draft (fortunately, a failed attempt this year – and appallingly supported by some Republicans). Now today, they are forcing their will on all taxpayers.

She warned us this was what the Equal Rights Amendment would have immediately enshrined in the Constitution.

Backing up, a few years after I married and my husband finished law school, we went to Chicago where he worked for McDermott, Will and Emery, a world class estate planning law firm. Chicago was a long way from home for this Hollywood, California girl. It was my first experience being so far away. I found a home with the National Eagle Forum. My husband had been asked to help The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment. It was deemed a moral issue, an attack on marriage and family and women, particularly stay-at-home mothers.

From my view, as well as Phyllis’, it was more than a moral issue. The economics of the proposal would one day create a dual-income family and eventually women who preferred to stay home to raise their children, would be forced into the workplace. Those of us that married to create a family and devote our prime time to raising our children were caught in a place in history where we were constantly demeaned and heard the media mantra, “You are just a housewife.” In fact, there is a song by that very title.

57I began reading and researching and decided that I wanted to take on this attack, in addition to helping my husband, whose legal skills were brought into the fight. I signed up for and attended my first United Nations conference – the International Womens Year Conference – in Normal, Illinois. The experience was anything but NORMAL.

I wondered whether I had landed in another country. Feminists everywhere. Parades of Anger. Images that never made it into the mainstream media. If they had, it would have shocked the nation. Banners with the marxist hammer and sickle and large photos of Karl Marx and Friedrick Engles. A workshop in which women were on stage with paper penises pinned to their crotches for a symbolic castration. I walked away feeling as though I had entered a new country spelled Amerika.

But in the papers, the only photos shown were those of all the First Ladies that were endorsing this conference – Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Betty Ford.

The brazen New York Congresswoman with the big hat, Bella Abzug chaired the sessions. When we were asked who knew parliamentary procedure, I was the one that raised my hand, apparently the only LDS woman among our group who had recently taken a course.  So I was appointed to stand at the microphone to try to stop her agenda. The trouble was, she had already stacked the convention with lesbians and radical Marxists.

In reality, she was a socialist ramming through an agenda much like President Obama and his administration and both houses of Congress have been doing today. It was radical to the core. That U.N. Conference altered the direction of our country, our marriages and our families for the worse. We must sit back and ask ourselves: Are American families and marriages better today than they were in 1978? Has no-fault divorce helped women or harmed them? Take a look at the poverty scale and the surging numbers of women and children this damaging legislation has hurt. Now nationalized health care with the intent to put everyone on the welfare rolls of the entitlement code.

This was all part of the agenda behind the ERA that she rammed through with an iron fist. I will never forget standing there and actually having to raise my voice in the microphone for her to even pay attention to us on points of order or clarification or calls for division. It’s when this shy girl learned that you either speak up and be heard or shut up and be silenced.

In one session I stood to speak in front of about 800 radical feminists. I started, “I’d like to quote from the bible…” I was immediately interrupted with boos’ hisses, jeers, and mocking laughter. I waited for the crowd to quiet down and then calmly started again, awaiting a moment of “triumph.” I said, “I’d like to quote from the bible of the feminist movement, the Yale Law Journal.” Total silence. I had two epiphanies in that moment: First, that we are truly fighting a battle between good and evil, as Sean Hannity often said.

Second, that I would never fear standing up alone, if necessary, to stand for what I believed. It was a life-changing experience.

It was after that session that I learned that Phyllis Schlafly wanted to meet me and that she wanted me to help her with the STOP ERA movement she was leading and to be the STOP ERA media rep in Chicago. I confess I was still quite shy and it was overwhelming to me to be thrust into the media limelight.

After that conference that falsely professed to represent all women in America, we were able to submit a minority report. Abzug ignored it, and then tried to take the IWY agenda back to Congress to set the agenda for all women. We know that had the ERA passed, many of the evils we fight still today – including same-sex marriage and transgender bathrooms, the “unisex” bathrooms Phyllis warned us about, would have been instantly legalized then. Instead we have piece-mealed Abzug’s agenda by individual legislation. It has been death by a thousand stabs for women, children and families.

Phyllis asked my husband to write the legal brief to stop passage of Illinois’ ERA, based on the premise that the rules could not be broken to change the threshold needed to pass. That brief won the day, first round, and Illinois, a key state for passage, was on hold. The ERA was temporarily stopped.

I raised five children during the 1980s and 1990s. When the school curriculum produced curriculum that was lying to my children, I re-engaged.  Local Dallas parents recruited me to run for the school board. Again, Phyllis was there to help. By 1993, I then helped Phyllis in the drafting of her definitive report on Outcome-Based Education.

phyllis-cherPhyllis and her family invited me to sing at Phyllis’ events on several occasions, two of which were her birthdays. It was such an honor. The year her conference featured Bill Bennett, I performed a parody of The Wind Beneath My Wings. The family sent me original copies of the family photos, and I created a video tribute. The year Phyllis introduced us to Ann Coulter, I sang a theme song for the Phyllis Schlafly I know, “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha. Her talented son John has accompanied me on piano on one occasion. And then for her 80th Birthday, I was again invited to sing. My daughter and I sang a duet parody from the Broadway musical Wicked.

20040918 Jen - Phyllis - Cher 2
Over the years, I have watched history remade and Phyllis Schlafly’s name besmirched. Some now even write that Bella Abzug called herself a homemaker. That is a lie.

Phyllis was right. Abzug undercut every homemaker and mother in America. Feminists treated us as if we had no standing. As homemakers, under her “leadership” and her agenda, women have lost many protections we once had. Now because women are competing in the work force, as Phyllis predicted, more women are also being forced to enter the work force because we are now competing in a two-income family economy.

Because we have had abortion on demand, we are replacing the 50 million+ babies that were aborted because of the false alarm of “population control” with almost the same illegal alien numbers because we are in a workforce crisis – “not enough workers.” Because of Bella Abzug and her cohorts, disparity in population exists that will “triage” baby boomers and ration our health care in the new government-managed health care plans, because there aren’t enough Gen Xers to go around to support our social security or Medicare. We could have told them that, and we did. Phyllis did. We ran the numbers. It is not rocket science.

62Phyllis was mocked and ridiculed for writing about the dangerous impact of no-fault divorce. Women who divorce, instead of being protected from husbands’ frivolously divorcing them, now find themselves working with “no-fault” divorce laws that leave them liable for wrongs husbands had historically been responsible for – whether from bankruptcy or being required to work to provide for their children. Women are now forced to defend our country on the front lines, and in some instances the government has even called up both the mother and the father at the same time and required them to find someone else to watch their babies while they have served in Iraq. This is abominable. Phyllis warned us. And for this liberals continued to mock.  She even endured a pie thrown in her face, and as always, with a gracious response.

Our school curriculum has also re-written the history of the women’s movement. Feminist studies courses portray Phyllis Schlafly and we women who opposed this radical socialist agenda as Neanderthals with prehistoric minds. The propaganda in these texts portray Phyllis Schlafly as an evil woman in history that did more to hold women back than anyone else. Yet I revere her as a woman who has done more for women, children and traditional families than any other woman or man in my lifetime.

Just look at what feminism has done to the dynamic of social interactions between young men and women today.  Feminists have forced young men today to cower to young women who have taken control of the social mores and are even afraid to ask them out on bona fide dates. Instead they just “hang out.” They are mentally emasculated. Feminism is out of balance, as was the original intent. Religious leaders have spoken to their concerns, and much of the time, in vain.

45Those of us who were there in the 70’s worked very hard under Phyllis Schlafly’s brilliant leadership to defeat the goals of this extremist, feminist woman Bella Abzug. The LDS Church asked the LDS women particularly in Illinois – under Vivian Adams’ direction, daughter of LDS Church leader Bruce R. McConkie, to be involved and to oppose the entire socialist agenda Abzug was supporting.

To illustrate how liberals have distorted and re-written history, I was surprised to see Bella Abzug, this liberal, radical feminist Democrat we fought so hard, honored in a Utah Republican Women’s newsletter years later. A conservative Republican women’s group in Provo, Utah published this piece. I could not stay silent when seeing an article that honored Bella Abzug. That would be like honoring Nancy Pelosi or Dianne Feinstein today.

Feminists continue to lie to our young women today. I was there. I cannot stay silent without standing up for the truth. Phyllis taught me, and my experience over the past 30 years is that when a conservative woman shows up in a room of radical feminists, it neutralizes them. We are their worst nightmare. They have been silencing some good men for a long time, and that must stop. The feminists don’t want us around. They have thrown us off the bus.

Years later, on one of the occasions staying in Phyllis’ home, she shared a personal story about how her strong opposition to that International Womens Year event came about. She was on her knees praying for help. She knew she needed thousands of women and didn’t know how she would get them. She had invited a few women who were leaders in religious organizations and conservative groups in Illinois. One woman was from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Vivian Adams.

As she told the story, she went around the table asking how many women these leaders could round up and bring out to the IWY events. One could bring a handful, another about 20. Then came Vivian. She pledged several hundred for Illinois, but thousands nationally. Phyllis told me the Mormon Church and its women were an answer to her prayer. For that reason, Eagle Forum has always been friendly and inviting to LDS women as leaders in Eagle Forum, the only religious right policy group to have that warm relationship.

51In 2009, when I ran for U.S. Senate and then two years later Congress, Phyllis was there to endorse me. She gave me excellent advice. I listened to her every word and hoped beyond hope that I could be as effective as she had been. She too had run for public office twice, and lost. The Daily Herald reporter called me “Utah’s Glenn Beck.” Meanwhile, a local talk show host continued to mock me as “dumb as a rock” and “what has she ever done.” I could relate to how they had also treated Phyllis over the years.

The Phyllis I know is nothing short of remarkable. She is irreplaceable. She was witty, charming and hospitable. On one of the occasions when I stayed in her home, I spilled orange-red tomato soup all over her beautiful, white dining room table-cloth spread across her enormously long dining table. Without skipping a beat, she was up and fetching a glass bowl of cold water – her remedy that worked like magic. She shared her beloved breakfast Muesli she has eaten for years every morning. And she drove me back and forth to the airport, as busy as she was. I loved playing her piano as she worked in her office late at night. It was comforting to note that her office was a piled high with papers as mine. I suppose that’s the plight of all activists.

I contemplated what would happen when Phyllis was gone. And now, my lifelong hero and mentor Phyllis Schlafly has passed away. We all believed it would be providential for her to live forever, but reality has arrived. At 92, I can testify from my personal interaction with her during the Republican convention in July, she was astute and led with strength until the end. It took the day yesterday for me to get my wits together.

I have lost a beloved friend and we have all lost a great leader. Here is one of my favorite photos of her from a collection the family sent me a few years back when they asked me to produce a video to honor her on her birthday.

Yesterday, I received a short personal email from Ed Martin, Eagle Forum’s executive director, just a couple of hours after, that my lifelong friend and hero Phyllis Schlafly passed away. I spent the rest of the day engulfed in tears.

I was so relieved that I felt impressed to visit her one last time at her mid-year meetings this past January, and I did. And then, a bonus: I was able to cover the Republican National Convention for the radio station KTALKmedia.com, and Missouri elected Phyllis a national delegate.  I would see her once again after all.

I will never forget the last moments I had with her. Try to visualize this picture:

We were on the convention floor the last night of the event in Cleveland. I was standing next to John Schlafly and the Missouri delegation for the evening, while roaming the floor getting interviews. Phyllis was in a wheel chair. She insisted on standing for certain applause, especially during Donald Trump’s acceptance speech. She stood on her own, but John and I helped her to her feet occasionally as she applauded vigorously.

Then the balloon drop. I’ve always wondered what dropping a quarter of a million balloons, large, medium and small would look like. (just kidding) And there they were. They just kept dropping. And Phyllis, sitting in her wheelchair, soon became engulfed in wheelchair-high balloons and confetti.
It was so humorous, I just had to take a picture:

Phyllis and balloons

Then came the complex task of maneuvering her wheel chair through the masses of people exiting the convention hall. The only way we could navigate was for John to push the chair, and I stood in front to break the waves of the crowd, with repeated announcements of “Wheelchair coming through!”

Shortly after we embarked on this somewhat painful and treacherous journey (the wheel chair foot rests kept attacking the backs of my legs), I felt Phyllis’ hand reach for mine and we held on for dear life as we made our way through. When people saw who was in the wheel chair, they were so respectful. “Oh! It’s Phyllis.” “Thank you, Phyllis for all you have done!” “We love you Phyllis.”

She never stopped smiling. Even then. It was surreal. I knew it would probably be the last time I saw her, and what a beautiful memory – her hand in mine as we made our way through the crowd together – for the last time.

One of my best memories is that she taught all of us a very important strategic tactic when on camera: You can say just about anything with a smile and get away with it. I’ve tried to remember that but never quite perfected it as she had. I’m told she was born with that smile.

We all knew this would be her last time at a national Republican convention. She has been a delegate many times over the years. She has always had a strong impact on the platform and meets with the delegates her organization elects in advance to make sure it stays strongly anti-feminist, which means pro-family, pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-stay at home mothering.

105She had taken a strong and controversial stance with her endorsement of Donald Trump, but before she did, she made him pledge that he would support the platform. He did do that. She proclaimed it the strongest Republican platform in her life time. And once again, she had the ear of a president-to-be, as she did with another imperfect candidate – Ronald Reagan.

Trump came through that convention supporting the pro-Life and family planks, as well as a new addition – repealing the Johnson Amendment, which would restore the First Amendment as it applies to religious liberty and speech for 501 c 3’s

Her early endorsement of this controversial candidate sent shock waves through the conservative community, and some of her own revolted. But as usual, other conservative leaders followed and endorsed him, especially after his invitational to evangelical religious leaders, with whom he met a couple of weeks before the convention.

I’ve been told by those that attended, and by Candy Carson, Ben’s wife, who talked to me at the convention, that he’s a good listener, and he took Phyllis’ advice and is taking the Carson’s and others as well. He had better follow through, because I’m warning him, Phyllis will dog him from the grave.

102She was never shy about influencing world leaders, even her own beloved Pope.

As Breitbart announced a few months ago, this was truly “Phyllis’ Last Stand,” but we didn’t realize it would be this soon. I think everyone was hoping she would live to see her endorsed candidate elected.

Ed Martin told me by phone yesterday that she just slipped away at an accelerated pace over the past couple of weeks, and the family was all there when she passed today.

She has left a strong mark in political history. She WAS the First Lady of the Conservative Movement.  Her predictions of the damaging effects of feminism on marriage, divorce, the family and the economy have proven correct.

120I hope our children and grandchildren will learn more about who she was and what she believed. As her son Andy recently wrote:

Many, many times fellow conservatives have declared my mother to be wrong on a particular issue, while praising her generally.  And every single time that I can think of, my mother ended up being right.  Call it intuition, Providence, luck, or whatever, my mother has a certain knack for politics that has virtually never been wrong.  I learned that the hard way until I accepted it.

I also hope that my deceased mom and dad have been able to meet up with her in heaven and that they were among those there to greet her. She reminded me a lot of my mom – her courage, her refinement, and her warm and welcoming hospitality.

God bless Phyllis. God bless her family. God bless the America she fought for and loved.

PS – I will be adding some photos later. I’m off to the radio station where Ed Martin and I will be paying a tribute to her. I hope you’ll join us online or on the dial – www.TalkMedia.com or download the app K talk radio, or at AM 630 Salt Lake City, 10 AM Mountain time.

When I was in college my mother showed me my first Phyllis Schlafly Report.  Growing up in the 1960’s in Hollywood, California was tough.

Summary of CMV – SB54

Comments Off on Summary of CMV – SB54

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.”

Slide1

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:

SB54=CMV

 

The State Central Committee now faces some important decisions.

  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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 […]
