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.

Who’s Who on the Utah GOP Establishment Ballot

Comments Off on Who’s Who on the Utah GOP Establishment Ballot

On Saturday, April 23, 2016 Utah State Delegates will assemble and make decisions on multi-county state legislative races as well as to elect the Republican nominee for Governor, Treasurer, federal races and to elect by acclamation others unopposed.

Foremost on everyone’s mind is who will be the national delegates that will represent Utah in Cleveland at the national convention in July to nominate the candidate for President.

This campaign season has drawn attention to the problem of the “Establishment” and its influence in the selection process.  In an attempt to education national delegates and citizens who are wondering what happens and what they can do, Phyllis Schlafly wrote a book that vividly describes how King making works at these conventions.  In A Choice Not An Echo, she reviews the history of these back room deals.  It is MUST reading!

So does Utah have an establishment?  And what does it mean?  Great questions!  The Establishment has been around a long time.  Here’s what Thomas Jefferson said:

I join in your reprobation of our merchants, priests and lawyers for their adherence to England & monarchy in preference to their own country and it’s constitution. but merchants have no country. the mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains. in every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. he is always in alliance with the Despot abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own. it is easier to acquire wealth and power by this combination than by deserving them: and to effect this they have perverted the purest religion ever preached to man, into mystery & jargon unintelligible to all mankind & therefore the safer engine for their purposes. with the lawyers it is a new thing. they have in the mother country been generally the firmest supporters of the free principles of their constitution. but there too they have changed. 

Some things never change.  Delegates have been asking me who the Establishment is in Utah.  I wrote a post in 2015 and identified them. They are the same group that has funded and has tried to destroy Utah’s caucus system.

The very discussion about the RNC rules and how the Romney team stipulated that you had to have eight states (in order to keep Ron Paul out), now those rules don’t fit their plans to bring in a third candidate, dark horse.

Now they are trying to say, “Well, that doesn’t mean you have to get those eight state prior to the convention, you just have to get it AT the convention?”

I don’t care WHO you support.  This is what the Establishment does.  This is a deception.  I have been in this party for a long time.  My mission has always been to expose who these elites are.  And so here it is:

[Disclaimer:  I know and have worked with a few of these people.  They each have value and are good people and have strengths I admire.  But we must put that aside when it comes to policy setting, votes that will be cast and legislative representation.]

COUNT MY VOTE ESTABLISHMENT

These are the donors that have sought to destroy our republican form of government.  Please read this blog post because I list the names and how much they have donated.  You may be shocked.  Some of them are running for national delegate.  If you see any of these names DO NOT VOTE FOR THEM.  Included on this DNV (Do Not Vote) list are these names and their family members:

  • Rich MeKeown
  • Mike Leavitt
  • Kirk Jowers
  • LaVarr Webb
  • Orrin Hatch
  • Thomas Wright
  • Ann Wright Lampropoulos

CMV CANDIDATES

DNV – Do not vote for the following candidates because they are receiving PAC donations from the CMV PAC through Mike Leavitt, Rich McKeown (Leavitt Group), Gail Miller.  Here is the screen shot:

CMV Candidates

TODD WEILER

CMV is concerned that Weiler’s challenger, Heather Gardner, will be elected because she has run an effective campaign to support the caucus.  Senator Weiler was censured in a State Central Committee for lying about the facts of the lawsuit in a series of Tweets.

Here are some screen shots of his distasteful Tweets to me, mocking me for raising funds for Marriage between a man and a woman as he helped LGBT constituents to undermine that institution.  It was not easy raising enough money to file the amicus briefs in the 4th, 10th Circuits and at the U.S. Supreme Court.

I also also discovered that he and Ken Ivory deliberately tried to stop the nullification of the ACA (ObamaCare) by watering it down to a Prohibition of Medicaid Expansion.  Then Senator Weiler tried to unsuccessfully undermine that substitute bill.

Weiler - Marriage 4

Weiler-Marriage 2

Weiler-Marriage 2

CURT BRAMBLE

He was the sponsor of the CMV bill – SB 54, falsely called a “compromise.”  It was no compromise.  It was CMV.  See my post.

BRIAN SHIOZAWA

Senator Shiozawa is an example of a very kind man (a church leader) that got elected while no one was looking.  His score is worse than his Democratic colleagues.


SB 54-CMV MEMBERS OF THE UTAH LEGISLATURE

Here is the list of State Senators that supported SB 54, which is the same as CMV and the original proposal that DC lobbyists (including Kirk Jowers) who have supported the Democratic National Committee and who set up and managed Stephen Colbert’s SuperPAC to mock Republican candidates

Here is the list of the State Representatives that supported SB 54.

WHICH MEMBERS OF THE UTAH LEGISLATURE ARE GETTING PAC MONEY FROM CMV?

This is your DNV (Do Not Vote) list for State Legislators that are accepting funds from the CMV elite (this is a SCREEN SHOT!)

CMV Candidates

Todd Weiler was censured during a recent State Central Committee for Tweeting false information about the lawsuit, which damaged the case.  He has a history on Twitter that has shown me he is not for Marriage between a man or a woman and is only a small portion of the abusive and mocking tweets he has sent out about me during a very difficult year of raising $100,000 to defend Marriage in the Courts.

Here is proof:

ELECTION OF A NEW NATIONAL COMMITTEEMAN AND WOMAN:  A CMV COUP?

At approximately 4:55 PM on the filing deadline day for National Committeeman and woman, two establishment candidates filed. Those of us who are involved in the Party were told that the current Committeeman and woman, Bruce Hough and Enid Mickelson, were running again.  In fact, even Party leadership were told just recently that they were not stepping down.

Without announcement, they both decided not to run and suddenly Thomas Wright and Ann Marie Lampropoulos,  brother and sister (wife of Fred Lampropoulos of Merit Medical) stepped forward.

Because the Wrights (which would be a question of nepotism in the first place) are running unopposed, the party rules stipulate that they will be elected by acclamation.  Why is this of any concern?

If you review my previous post about the Establishment and CMV=SB 54, you will notice that Merit Medical (the Lampropoulos’ company) donated $25,000 to destroy the caucus and to oppose the party’s position on the law suit – that CMV and SB 54 are unconstitutional.

The Party is in the Court on this matter.  It is a serious issue of a First Amendment right to freely assemble and to define membership, rather than open it up to unaffiliated and render the caucus and convention a mere endorsement with little reason for any candidate to go through the process and be motivated to get to know us, the grassroots.

It is plausible to believe that there was coordination between the two candidates and the current Committeeman/woman.

I know from a previous poll I took of Republicans that Fred Lampropoulos, candidate Ann Marie’s husband, favors a fully OPEN PRIMARY.  I also know that Enid Mickelson favors the 80% threshold, which would render the convention purposeless.

The RNC is Establishment-controlled.  All the in-fighting going on over rules is a great concern.  Both Bruce and Enid supported the rule change that created a favorable situation for Mitt Romney to control the delegates.  Now, that same group is trying to manipulate the rule Romney wanted to keep the Ron Paul delegates out, by saying “Oh the candidate doesn’t need to carry 8 states into the convention.  They can do that DURING the convention.”  Seriously?  Then WHY do we need all these Primaries?  Why not just show up at the convention and influence the delegates there?

To have two people succeed these two new candidates that are the heirs apparent to the current Establishment Committeeman/woman that have actively worked, with their money and in the case of Thomas Wright, who fully supported SB 54, is objectionable.

Not only do the members of the RNC help raise money for the Party, they also set the rules for the national convention and they have a lot of power to manipulate those rules and who becomes the next president.

We don’t need any more games played at the RNC, which is Establishment-controlled.  

This matter will be handled in a follow-up State Central Committee meeting to resolve.

[Ultimately, this problem is happening because we have allowed people to be elected that have departed from the U.S. Constitution and have perverted it with some amendments that have altered its original intent, which is why I am running for Presidential Elector.  Read more about this topic in this post.]

CAUTION
Although the Establishment is gathered around Ted Cruz right now, remember where they started:  JEB BUSH.  Then MARCO RUBIO. Then KASICH.  They will pull out all stops to get their Establishment goal and their elitist pick.  That candidate profile does not respect the U.S. Constitution, states rights, and our borders.  It does not regard the moral issues as winning and seeks to silence them.  The Establishment, as in Thomas Jefferson’s words, has been selling out this nation to global interests for decades.  We must return to the principles of the U.S. Constitution.

CRUZ OFFICIAL SLATE ESTABLISHMENT

I have consistently stated that ALL the candidates have Establishment consultants and figures seeded in their campaigns.  For this, I’ve been on everyone’s most-disliked list.  But I’m not here to be popular.  I’m here to tell the truth on my radio show The Liberty Lineup on AM 630 KTKK 10-Noon Mountain time daily and also online or by smart phone app k talk radio.

So when the Utah Official Cruz slate came out, there they were.  In fact, so alarming was it that two other slates emerged – a Leadership Slate and a Non-Establishment slate.  The first is the Cruz campaign team.  The second is not only members of the campaign team, but the grassroots that have worked hard to preserve the caucus and who also want to protect the platform – another role of a national delegate.

The Official Cruz slate Establishment include:

  • Spencer Stokes
  • Spencer Cox
  • Gary Herbert
  • Jeanette Herbert
  • Casey Voeks
  • David Clark
  • Wayne Niederhauser
  • Richard Snelgrove
  • Marco Diaz
  • Clair Ellis

It’s not a good idea to send people who will be “double-dipping” in their power.  National Delegates should be grassroots and not elected officials.  I will make ONE exception, and that is Mike Lee because, full disclosure, I do support Ted Cruz and without Mike’s endorsement, Ted would not be in the U.S. Senate.  I don’t agree with all their votes, but they are the best we have in DC.  So here are the elected officials that should step aside and allow grassroots to be elected as national delegates:

  • Family members of elected officials
  • Mia Love
  • Rob Bishop
  • Bill Lee

Here is the Non-Establishment slate.  I’m so honored to have been invited to join this great group of Americans!

Cherilyn Eagar Debates Planned Parenthood of Utah

Comments Off on Cherilyn Eagar Debates Planned Parenthood of Utah

American Leadership Fund Board Member Al Jackson Elected to Utah State Senate

Comments Off on American Leadership Fund Board Member Al Jackson Elected to Utah State Senate

American Leadership Fund


BREAKING NEWS!!! 

Senator Al Jackson, American Leadership Fund’s board member WINS election!  

A HUGE congratulations to ALF’s board member, Al Jackson for running for State Senate and WINNING!  by ONE vote.  Every vote truly counts. 

Al was our endorsed candidate, of course.  I have known Al and Juleen for over 11 years now.  They hosted a marvelous event at their beautiful Maryland home years ago, and we have stayed in contact since they relocated to Utah.

Al is a founding ALF board member and has been instrumental in helping us get ALF off the ground.  Juleen is a strong and courageous leader and president of United Women’s Forum in Utah County.  They both have a clear understanding of the proper role of government, and Al is our voice in Washington DC when we need him. 

We also know Ken Sumsion who is a great man that we have sorely missed in the legislature. We need him there again – he was one of the founders of the Patrick Henry Caucus and worked very hard.  Those were the days of real commitment and principled leaders.  We are counting on Al to bring people together in the Senate to have that courage.

We could not have a better senator! 

Here are a couple of photos. 

With Al’s beautiful wife Juleen and one of their adorable daughters.

Here’s Al with another founding ALF board member/Highland City Councilman Tim Irwin, a great friend and consultant and supporter who also helped launch ALF and is a great resource.

Bundy Family Readies for Round Two Against Feds and Harry Reid

Comments Off on Bundy Family Readies for Round Two Against Feds and Harry Reid

 

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls

Watch what’s happening again in Nevada as Cliven Bundy readies for the next round of the federal showdown.  Harry Reid promised he was not done with the Bundy’s.

Once again the Southern Poverty Law Center, a God and Constitution-hating legal group with a war chest of $223 million, is on the attack.

The SPLC is also the major player waging the war against traditional marriage and religious liberty.  And it should be no surprise that the SPLC is now branding the Bundy family as – you guessed it – extremists, their favorite label.

The Bundy’s are facing another unconstitutional federal act to take away their property rights.

This report is from our friend Joel Skousen, a friend of the Bundy Family. They  successfully stood up to federal agents that had circled their property and unconstitutionally removed cattle from their land.

This is the latest in the unconstitutional invasion of private property owned by this family for over 137 years. If it can happen to them, it can happen to anyone.

Joel wrote:

“I met Ammon Bundy at the Arizona Prepperfest meeting in Scottsdale and he told me about the latest federal attempt to shut down the Bundy grazing rights. Rather than tackle the Bundy ranch specifically, the Feds have decided to tie up all the ranch lands with another environmental mandate—this time based on fragile soil!”

The Bundy’s have posted this report on the Bundy Family blog site.

Screen-Shot-2014-04-24-at-8.43.04-PM

 

Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people. Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern(ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

[This is the same state with all the atomic weapons craters, and the same federal government that made them. You may take that as a measure of their real concern for the environment in Nevada.]

[Cherilyn Eagar Note:  Take a look at this map.  If you live in a state that is primarily blue and pink, your constitutional rights and your prosperity are being hijacked by the federal government and you have allowed this to happen because you have been asleep. Time to wake up and get behind your state legislators to take action.]

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

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.

[Cherilyn Eagar Note: In Utah, nearly 70% of its land is owned, managed and controlled by the federal government under similar restrictions. That state has energy resources that could fuel the entire United States, but its citizens are restricted from access to the protected land. ACECs are harming the entire nation’s economy.  Land takeovers in the name of environmental concerns are the greatest lies foisted on foolish and gullible Americans whose constitutional rights are being stripped from them right before their eyes and they do not see it. ]

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise). Listed below are just a few of the outlined restrictions that come with ACECs: Closed Roads, Trails, Camping, Recreational Vehicles, Motorized Travel, Livestock Grazing, hiking, Horseback, Mineral Development, hunting, target shooting, and water access. [That’s about everything!]

Before the Bundy ranch standoff, there were approximately 1 million acres of ACECs in Southern Nevada. Now after the Bundy standoff, the BLM is proposing an additional 1.8 Million acres (280% of what it has been) all of which just happens to be in Southern Nevada. Although this is not proof, anybody with a little intelligence can see that Harry Reid and the BLM are not protecting the environment; they are punishing their enemies.

This is a direct assault on the State of Nevada. It is also a deliberate retaliation against the people for standing against the horrific action of several federal agencies at the Bundy ranch. The boldness of the federal government’s timing and action on these matters are astonishing. They are again making a clear case that they are willing to use federal power to punish the local people. Harry Reid’s declaration “This is not over” is proving to be uncharacteristically accurate.

The Bundy family is not going to abide by this latest attempt to curtail grazing rights:

Lest there be any confusion regarding how these new federal rules impact the Bundy family, we will continue ranching as our family has done in the Southern Nevada area for over 137 years. We intend to use our preemptive property rights of grazing and water, the rights that Nevada State law both recognizes and is charged to protect. We are not intimidated by the past action of the federal government, nor will we yield to their future attempt to subdue the State or the people. We refuse to submit to unconstitutional codes and regulation that dismantle Statehood and deprived our American neighbors and ourselves of the unalienable right so many of our kinsmen suffered and died for. [This guarantees another showdown.]

Comments from Cherilyn Eagar
It’s time to call out the constitutional sheriffs again. That’s where it began in the Wild West, and that’s apparently where all of this federal land grab is going to end.

Thankfully, Utah has a strong legislature on states’ rights, land rights and sovereignty in general. We will watch this one closely and pray for the Bundy’s. They are good people, and we are with them in their fight for their constitutional rights. Their fight is our fight.

Another Award for Cherilyn Eagar from Columnist Paul Rolly

Comments Off on Another Award for Cherilyn Eagar from Columnist Paul Rolly

When you put yourself on the chopping block, you’re bound to get chopped.

That’s an understatement for those of us who are engaged in the very emotional issues of why children need both a mom and a dad and why homosexual parenting is emotionally traumatic to children, alienating a child from one or the other of the biological parents.

You become accustomed to being called a “bigot,” “homophobic,” and other vulgar names I cannot write.

You get used to having your religious beliefs mocked, being bullied, harassed, and intimidated. I’ve had tires slashed, a swastika spray-painted on my driveway, a death threat, and our business harmed because we donated to Prop 8.

I’m not alone. Every one of my colleagues has experienced this vicious hatred.

Now and then, you just have to sit back and find some humor in all the seriousness of being on the firing line of our nation’s most controversial issues. This is one of those moments. Read More

Cherilyn Eagar’s Upgrade from the Left

1 Comment

Paul RollyAccording to Paul Rolly, Salt Lake’s Leftist satirical columnist, he has just given me an upgrade: Apparently I’m a goddess now.  I was once honored by the Troublemakers Club, a group of women speaking out and making a difference in Utah and they gave me a plastic crown for my achievements.  But this is truly a real honor of a lifetime, especially coming from the Left.

I truly enjoy Rolly’s humor.  No seriously, honestly. He’s a clever writer and sometimes has me…no pun…rolling.

However, his post tries to make a point that I’m wrong about the politicizing of the investigation of the Attorney General. But what the post accomplished is exactly the opposite: It proves my point.

The point is, I – a conservative woman – made it to Rolly’s Leftist hit list!  That is a badge of honor.  And if I weren’t so Right about the Left having a heyday with the AG investigation, I would never have made it into his column at all.

I can understand why he associates me with the tea party. I ran for US Senate during the year the tea party formed. However, I have kept an independent position, and not all of them supported me.  In fact, I predate any tea party movement by three decades. Read More
