Hillary Clinton Slipping?

"Those who say that Hillary is not being hurt by the email scandal need to have a look at the latest Quinnipiac Poll released on Thursday, 4/9/15. Her lead in Iowa and Colorado has vanished and she is no better than tied against all Republican candidates. In Iowa, her favorable rating is down to 45% from 49% in February.
In Virginia, whose politics are increasingly dominated by federal bureaucrats employed in next door DC, she has moved up against Bush, leading him by five points.

Expect poll after poll to echo and continue these findings. Hillary's ratings are on a downward trajectory and will remain so even after she announces officially. She won't get much of a bump from announcing. And any she does get will soon be overshadowed by the spreading email scandal that is engulfing her.

It is not the scandal, itself that is most important in these days a year and a half before the election. It is the secondary effect it is bound to have on Democrats who worry about Hillary's ability to win in November. Every primary is partially an audition to determine who should fill the role of party standard bearer. The more Hillary's ratings against possible Republican opponents drops, the more Democrats are going to second guess her candidacy.

Polls that show her wiping our any Democrat in the primaries are premature. They test a response to something that hasn't happened yet. First you have to have the news of the scandal sink in. Then it has to move the polls of her favorability and her head to head matchup with Republican candidates. Then, and only then, can you expect her vote share against Democratic rivals to drop.
But it will." ~Dick Morris

Sarah Palin: CPAC 2014


"I do not like this Uncle Sam. I do not like his health-care scam.

"I do not like these dirty crooks or how they lie and cook the books.

"I do not like when Congress steals. I do not like their crony deals.

"I do not like this spying, man. I do not like 'Oh, yes we can.'

"I do not like this spending spree. We’re smart, we know there’s nothing free.

"I do not like reporters’ smug replies when I complain about their lies.

"I do not like this kind of hope, and we won’t take it, nope, nope, nope." -Sarah Palin

Phyllis Schlafly Interview




(OL) 1. It is an honor to be with you. Thanks for your time. How have you been and what are the latest happenings in your world?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I went to David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend, so I've been in Palm Beach for three days, I just got back and it was very enjoyable.

(OL) 2. You have written many books on various subjects such as family, feminism and religion. When you look back on the success of those books, what is your hope that people will take from reading them?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
The most influential and really the most important was the first one, "A Choice Not An Echo," and really what that did was to tell the grassroots to rise up and not let the establishment give us any more losing candidates. To get the kind of candidates the grassroots wanted. "A Choice Not An Echo" brought people into the conservative movement. It was a major factor in the building of the conservative movement

(OL) 3. One of your most recent books, No Higher Power: Obama’s War On Religious Freedom, goes in depth about this administration’s continuous efforts to abolish religious liberty. With a second term left to complete, what is your solution to combat these assaults against people of faith?  

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I think they can speak against it and write against it and if there are any Supreme Court decisions that go wrong, they should rise up and attack the Supreme Court decision. They shouldn't just sit around and let the Supreme Court wipe out the First Amendment, which is what Obama wants. So I think public protest and public action is simply very important.

(OL) 4. Can you tell us about your involvement in the fight against common core and briefly explain it to our readers?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
Common core is the latest of the attempt to have federal control of the curriculum in public schools. Now, it's against the law for the federal government to try to run our curriculum in the public schools, but they do it in devious ways. You notice that the common core people will say, "Oh, there isn't any curriculum, it's just the standards." But that's playing with words, because the common core is moving to control all the testing in the country. If the kids are going to pass the tests, the teachers are going to have to teach to the tests. I also think that the attempt to have a national standard is dumbing down. It's like that radio slogan, where all kids are above equal; we know that's not possible.

I think everything is bad about it. I think it's a tremendous money making scheme. There's just hundreds of thousands of dollars that have gone into enforcing it on the public schools and other schools, from the testing mechanism. I haven't seen anything good about it at all. Parents are very upset about the math assignments and other assignments that their kids are coming home with. I think we would be better off if we just leave the curriculum up to the state and local school boards, which is what Canada does. Canada doesn't have a national control over their education and they get along fine.

(OL) 5. In 1972 you founded the Eagle Forum, a national organization that encourages everyday citizens to participate in the public policymaking process. What led your inspiration to start this movement?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I started writing my newsletter, The Phyllis Schlafly Report in 1967 as a result of a campaign I waged to be President of the National Federation of Republican Women, an election that I lost. But I had all of these thousands of women who wanted to follow my leadership. I devised the newsletter as a way of communicating with them and sending them a message every month about politics.

In those days I wrote mostly about the strategic ballots, about the Soviet Missile threat and I would write an issue each month about some important national political topic. In February of 1972, I wrote one issue called, "What's Wrong With Equal Rights For Women?" And it kind of took off into orbit. A few weeks after I mailed it, a friend from Oklahoma called and said, "Phyllis, we took your newsletter to our legislators and they voted down ERA (Equal Rights Amendment)." ERA just came out of the congress and I hadn't paid any attention to it until I researched it for that newsletter, but then I took a look at it and read it and thought it was a very bad deal, basically a fraud.

(OL) 6. Out of all your years as a staunch defender of upholding conservative values, what has been the most challenging obstacle that you had to overcome and why?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I guess the most challenging obstacle is the media. They are against what the grassroots want in most cases and they are very powerful. They repeat their bias again and again.
(OL) 7. Being a seasoned platform debater, what is the most important trait one must possess to be as impactful as you have when it comes to debating the issues in the political arena?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I think you have to know your facts. My speeches and debates are very fact intensive. I try to give people information that is truthful information. They can check it out and can find I was telling them the truth. I have found that a lot of my opponents didn't really tell it like it is. I found if I stuck to the absolute truth I was better off and could win most of the debates.

(OL) 8. What advice can you give to the rising electorate of young Americans to be better informed and remain involved in the future of politics?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I think politics is a battle and a lot of people don't like that, but there are enough people who do. They enjoy the competition of it and they're also impressed with how important it is because it means what kind of a country we're going to live in. I urge those who that can take it to be active in politics and be active as a volunteer. I think it's very important to have as many people as possible to do that.

(OL) 9. What is your vision for America?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
People are very depressed, our kind of people are very depressed at the present time. But I gave them I hope encouragement that a small group, a minority group, can rise up and turn the country around. That’s what I'm trying to do and I hope that we can have enough people who will help on that.

(OL) Can you quote that beautiful scripture you are famous for saying in your speeches?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
"They who wait upon the Lord will rise up with wings as eagles, they will run, and not be weary."

I urge people not to be weary in trying to defend our country. I think Obama's taking us down the wrong road and it's up to conservatives to get our country back on the right track. We need everybody. I encourage people to be volunteers in politics. It's difficult, a lot of times it’s not fun but it's very important. I have gathered quite a lot of people who are willing to go into the battle and sustain themselves in the battle for a long time, which I’ve done for many, many years.

(OL) 10. How do you want your legacy to be remembered?

(Phyllis Schlafly)
I think I showed people that good people and conservatives can accomplish a great deal despite tremendous odds; I think that's what I did. I showed the conservatives that they can win despite all the odds being against them, despite the media, despite the big money of the RINOS, despite the power of people who are in government; we can still win.

Join Susan Combs for ShePAC in Chicago on 8/7



Friend,

We are honored to have Texas Comptroller Susan Combs join us for a reception in Chicago. Susan's story is inspiring to many conservative women—her rise from activist to proven conservative leader is a great model for many conservative women running for office today. We look forward to hearing from Susan how conservative policies created the "Texas Success Story" and how as Comptroller she has returned over $1 billion dollars to taxpayers. This tall Texas rancher not only "talks the talk" but "walks the walk".

Join Susan Combs, ShePAC and many great conservative women running for Congress in 2014 for a memorable evening. All funds raised will go directly to ShePAC's national efforts to Support, Honor & Elect more conservative women.

Hope you can join us August 7th in Chicago!

America The Beautiful





By Christian Scalise

I’d like to share my thoughts on the outcome of the 2012 race with all of you. I have come to accept it, and I now pray that we can all unite as one America, regardless of what the political spectrum and news media feeds us. We are children of God, and each one of us was created in the image and likeness of God; and He doesn’t want us to be divided.

We are not to be afraid. When we allow ourselves to fall into fear or anxiety that is not from Christ, nothing that dwells in the darkness is from the Lord. Bring to the light, all that you fear!! 

The other side may be touting their achievements high and low, and that's okay, let them. This is a time for us to be tested, we are not to become weary or discouraged. The enemy wants that, not Christ.

This will be a time of tribulation, a time for souls to fully grow in Christ and find strength, peace, and courage through him, with him, and in him. Jesus never promised us that the road would be easy, or the task light.

Don't give up my fellow patriots, for we have come this far. Heal your wounds, but strengthen your foundation. Never lose sight of who you are or what you believe in. Don't sell yourself short. The enemy does not win, because we do not allow him to takeover what we have, and no government, political leader, or individual can ever take that; our faith, and our love of Christ!

We need to pray for courage, and ask the Lord for guidance. We may have to die for our faith in the years to come, but be not afraid, for the reward for such a sacrifice is ETERNAL SALVATION. We will be Martyrs. Those who follow Christ will end up with Christ for all of Eternity. That is truly a great privilege, and a grace from God Almighty.  

We must also pray for our church, whatever your denomination may be. We have to continue to lift up the congregation, and those who are the very part of what we believe in. We will not, and we can not allow our faith to be assaulted by the government. They have no right to infringe upon our beliefs. This is fact; we are protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution; 

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
 
Now my brothers and sisters in Christ, be strong, be brave, have faith and pray, pray for your enemies, pray for those who hurt you, pray that these lost souls will have a conversion and change of heart. We can plant the seed, and the Lord will do the rest. Mighty is the power of God, and mighty is he who bears the name of the son most high.

Focus on the next two years. We must unite and bring all races, genders, and people of all ages to our party. We shall not redefine it, but broaden the base and invite others to join us. We can achieve that through love, understanding, and charity.

The midterm elections will take place in 2014, it is then that we must work, and work VERY hard. We have a house to keep, and a Senate to win. This time, we will prevail, and we will send many great common sense conservative politicians to the Senate. We will, and we CAN do this!

God Bless all of you, and God Bless America! Stand strong, and never lose your right to express who you are, and what you treasure most.

PS- And who knows...maybe one day I will run for political office, that is if the Lord wills it, and I feel the calling in my heart and soul. If the path is meant to be, then I pray that the Lord will lead me to it.
