Phyllis Schlafly used her waning time well — recently exposed Jeff Flake

Conservative icon, Phyllis Schlafly, died Monday at age 92. Hers was a life well lived — as a wife,  mother of six, lawyer, author, syndicated columnist, conservative activist, lecturer and founder of the influential Eagle Forum. In one of her final columns, Schlafly wrote in support of Donald Trump, whom she had endorsed, and exposed Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) as a disreputable globalist. We have reprinted that July 13, 2016 column in its entirely. This brilliant and courageous woman will be missed.

Trump Battles Globalist Republicans

Before heading to Cleveland to accept the Republican nomination for president, Donald Trump paid a high-profile visit to Capitol Hill, where he hoped to unify Congressional Republicans behind his presidential campaign. Many of the 247 Republican Representatives and 54 Senators were cordial to their party’s presumptive nominee, but others remained hostile and weren’t shy about expressing it to reporters after leaving the closed-door meetings.

One Congressman reportedly demanded that Trump promise to protect Congress’ Article I powers if he is elected. Trump tactfully refrained from pointing out how many times the Republican Congress has unilaterally surrendered its Article I powers, including the power “to regulate commerce with foreign nations.”

Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona openly mocked Trump at the meeting and then bragged to reporters about their “tense” exchange. Flake, an unrepentant member of the Gang of Eight that produced the 2013 amnesty bill, has already announced plans to resurrect that discredited bill next year no matter who is elected president.

Trump’s next stop was a private meeting with Senator Ted Cruz, who inappropriately brought his campaign manager Jeff Roe to the meeting. Two months after suspending his campaign, why does Cruz still utilize a high-priced campaign manager to join high-level discussions with the presumptive nominee?

The answer is that Cruz never stopped running for president, and the people who spent $158 million — more than twice what Trump spent — to back Cruz in 2016 are not going away. Cruz recently set up two new nonprofit organizations to keep his key people employed, prematurely launching another run for president in 2020.

Cruz’s delays in endorsing Trump and his disloyal preparations to run for president in 2020 help only one person: Hillary Clinton, which is what some Republican mega-donors actually prefer, because they are globalists who oppose Trump’s stances against immigration and free trade.

The globalists will never accept Trump or anyone else who puts Americans first, and they are using Cruz to undermine Trump’s campaign. Cruz’s mega-donors think they can buy their way to control of the Republican Party even if Trump wins the presidency this year, and they are already funding the takeover of several conservative organizations.

These globalist money-men are also hostile to our Constitution, which they want to rewrite in a new constitutional convention, also called “Convention of States.” Eric O’Keefe, who has close ties to the billionaire Koch brothers, backs the Never Trump movement and is a board member of the Convention of States project.

Justice Scalia in May 2015 called this attempt for a new constitutional convention a “horrible idea,” but several of its cheerleaders were able to get on the Republican platform committee that is meeting this week. Cruz has praised the delusional proposal to add many amendments to the Constitution, and some of his donors are part of the same group that seeks to alter our Constitution.

Cruz earned support by many conservatives when he first came to D.C. four years ago. It is long overdue for Cruz to repudiate the support of these globalists who are working against Trump and against our national sovereignty.

“We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism,” Trump promised in his April 27 foreign policy speech in Washington. That sentiment is anathema to the globalists who provide much of the money for Republican candidates.

“I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down,” Trump continued. “Under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs. Americans must know that we’re putting the American people first again.”

When Trump vows to “put Americans first” the globalists complain about “protectionism,” as if there’s something wrong with expecting our own government to protect American jobs and America’s economic interests.

“On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority,” Trump said. “Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours, and we – while being fair to them – must start doing the same.”

In a June 22 speech in New York, Trump intensified his attack on the globalist money interests: “We’ll never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who have rigged it in the first place. The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power and in the money.”

“It’s not just the political system that’s rigged, it’s the whole economy,” Trump continued. “It’s rigged by big donors who want to keep wages down. It’s rigged by big businesses who want to leave our country, fire our workers, and sell their products back into the United States with absolutely no consequences for them.”

We’ve waited a long time for a Republican candidate to express these pro-American views, but Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential primaries proves they are what the voters want to hear.

Editor’s note: Phyllis Schlafly’s words were proven even truer on Sunday, when the arrogant Republicrat Jeff Flake gave this contemptible interview during an appearance on “Face the Nation.”

    Jeff Flake is a self serving disgrace. He was making the rounds of Sunday shows this past weekend, also appearing on CNN’s “State Of The Union,” to bash Trump.

    Let’s not forget he was not the overwhelming favorite for the senate post he now holds as a first termer.. Running against former Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona in 2012, he barely won despite numerous commercials featuring retiring Sen. Jon Kyl and John McCain, who did all they could to bring this like thinking amnesty clone on board their amnesty train.

    Flake’s election was far from an overwhelming endorsement of his squish views. He won by a mere 3 percentage points. The much more ethical Dr. Carmona should have demanded a recount!

    Yes, we’ve lost another conservative warrior today.

    breitbart.com has a mini bio of her.
    Fascinating.
    A life well-lived, to be sure.

    Meanwhile, closer to home. Just checking flying conditions and see that parts of AZ are under a tropical storm watch. Hurricane Newton coming up from Mexico.
    Be especially alert in southeast AZ.

      Breitbart’s tribute to Phyllis Schlafly is beautifully written. She had a great impact on me as I was coming of age. Unfortunately, the Republican party she loved and I revered is now peopled by self serving flakes like Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain, and Arizona Republican Chairman Robert Graham, who works to promote the two traitorous senators, who have no aversion to lying in order to win. There are no honorable Ronald Regans on the immediate horizon.

      • Doc says:

        While I share most of your assertions, Sally, I disagree with your last one. Hopefully, Dr. Kelli Ward will run against, & mop the floor with th’ joonyer ?senator? from AZ…

      • Sally Forth says:

        I imagine all of our wishes that Dr. Kelli Ward would subject herself to the RINO meat grinder once again and within a year, is more than we can reasonably expect. Being outspent by the PACs, lobbyists and establishment cronies of the incumbents is difficult to .overcome regardless of whether the challenger is the far better candidate. We saw this in 2010 with McCain and JD Hayworth, who is a far better, brighter and more honorable man. Then they make sure there are stooges in the race to siphon votes from the challenger. This time around it was Alex Meluskey and Clair Van Steenwyk who played the spoilers. I was never a fan of term limits, but it’s become clear to me that there is no alternative to getting the deeply entrenched out of office. And we shouldn’t forget that the disreputable Jeff Flake reneged on his pledge to term limit himself while still in the US House.It was too spellbinding to give up and he didn’t. He winked, grinned and said, “I lied.”

        Also, refusing to debate means there are no tough questions to answer and no embarrassing headlines to deal with. McCain couldn’t risk debating Kelli Ward. He doesn’t have the intellect to think on his feet. She’s decades younger, and highly intelligent.

      • Doc says:

        Point well taken, Sally. I’ve been calling for term limits here on SRAZ for years. And this latest round of jackassery is just another piece of evidence that term limits MUST be enacted. l’il jeffy mcFlake ABSOLUTELY MUST NOT be re-elected. We need to start working on this NOW, in my “not very humble” opinion. His Sunday morning filth was a topic of discussion on fox news & Fox 10 Arizona again this morning. There’s PROOF that he’s a dim-0-crap in (r)’s clothing. I stand with Mr. Mark Levin on our Presidential election. Trump isn’t my guy. BUT, not voting for him is a vote for lyin’ shrillary. And yet, he stands firm on his decision to “not vote” for Trump.

        …he’s an idiot, hell-bent on ASSisting in the destruction of our Great Nation. Period.

  3. Maggie says:

    Phyllis Schlafly was among the brightest lights of the conservative movement. She was the antithesis of the feminists in vogue at the time, Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Bela Abzug, Germaine Greer and the like. They taught women that they could not be fulfilled in the home mothering their children, so children were raised in day care with non-loving stranger feeding them junk for the body and mind as they placed them in front of the television for endless hours. We are dealing with the results of that institutionalization of American’s babies and toddlers today. Then the government took up the cause by funding all day kindergarten, further separating children from parental influence. The liberal unionist teachers in grade school and high school, who spend more time with students than their own parents do, sealed the deal with years of leftist propagandizing. College completed the brainwashing, which is why Socialist Bernie Sanders had the youth vote. Few American kids understand the differences between the corruption and failures of Socialism and Communism and the Constitutionally ensured rights Americans have in our representative republic and under the capitalist system that rewards individual effort.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Phyllis Schlafly’s death at this point in time should underscore how vile Hillary is in comparison to her. Schlafly was a real leader, a true trailblazer while Hillary is a fraud, following a path carved by women like Schlafly and bastardizing it for her own wicked gain. The two couldn’t be more polar opposites.

  5. Hagar says:

    I first met Phyllis Schlafly 40 years ago when I first attended one of her “Eagle Council” meetings in St. Louis.She was a shining beacon in a morass of conservative indifference. She was best at explaining conservative values and exposing those charlatans (read McCain and Flake) who posed as conservatives for their own personal advantage. I am proud to have been one of her “Eagles” and my Eagle plaque she gave me hangs on the wall above my desk. RIP Phyllis.

  6. Ellsworth says:

    McCain calls himself a “maverick.” Jeff Flake could fittingly refer to himself as a “jackass.”
