By Kelleigh Nelson:
“The Conservative Case for Trump” is nothing less than the case for saving America from socialist tyranny…Every conservative needs to read this book and heed the wisdom of the heroic Phyllis Schlafly.” — Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, professor of economics, Loyola University Maryland
Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the ‘kingmakers’ on behalf of America’s workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty. — Donald J. Trump
Schlafly’s Magnum Opus
Her final book, “The Conservative Case for Trump,” was released the day after Phyllis passed into glory on September 5, 2016, and is now on the New York Times best seller list. I’d love to say it is Phyllis’s magnum opus, but she has written so many phenomenal books that to name one would be to marginalize her other great works. “A Choice, Not an Echo,” the updated and expanded 50th anniversary edition of the original publication, is a phenomenal book documenting the Rockefeller Republican Kingmakers. The updated version was released in 2014, and perhaps that is her Magnum Opus, but this last book is one with great hope for America, and Phyllis spent her last few months on earth making sure the American people knew it.
Eagle Forum Council 2016
Phyllis would not have wanted any of Eagle Forum’s efforts to save our beloved Republic to come to a halt because she was no longer with us. Only two weeks after her death, Phyllis’s choice for President of Eagle Forum, Ed Martin, and her sons and faithful employees continued their plans for Eagle Forum’s yearly council meeting which met on September 16th through 18th. I was blessed to be an invited guest at this wonderful celebration.
It would be difficult to highlight the many exceptional speakers in this article, but suffice to say, my very favorites were Dr. and Mrs. Ben Carson. Candy Carson received the Eagle Forum Fulltime Homemaker Award. Her husband introduced her and spoke about their courtship, marriage, and lives together. Candy expounded on this theme and then told us about her husband’s choice to run for President and how he experienced some of the ugliness of politics. I am truly in awe of this wonderful couple. They both love Donald J. Trump, and I would hope that Dr. Carson will be an integral part of Mr. Trump’s administration.
Watch for future articles about the Carson’s, and the rest of the speakers, as well as those who came to honor Phyllis in the Saturday morning Celebration of Life.
The Last Book
As noted in my previous article, Phyllis Schlafly and President of Eagle Forum and co-author, Ed Martin, worked tirelessly for hundreds of hours poring through her written work and Mr. Trump’s policies to put together the book, The Conservative Case for Trump. Phyllis and her colleagues met with and interviewed Mr. Trump. This amazing book not only contains a treasure trove of Phyllis’s writings on Mr. Trump, but it contains direct answers from Mr. Trump on how to fix the problems our beloved country faces today.
Brett Decker, co-author and editor of the book, was formerly editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Times. He asked Mr. Trump direct questions, and he received answers just as direct. Mr. Decker told us at Eagle Forum Council that he had only 13 days to edit this new book! His efforts were well worth it.
We all know Trump will inherit an America in very deep trouble, not to mention a heavy burden of debt. Today our nation is weak and unprosperous, and we are divided rather than being one nation united together under God. The businessman, Donald Trump, has plans as a first-time politician to Make America Great Again; the authors of this book believe he will do it, and so does this writer.
The Books’ Chapters Tell the Story
The first chapter in this marvelous little book, is about the “Immigration Invasion.”
Donald J. Trump said, “The first thing we need to do is secure our southern border, and we need to do it now. We have to stop the flood, and the best way to do that is to build a wall.”
And what was one of Phyllis’s greatest accomplishments at the 2016 GOP convention? She actually got “The Wall” in the Republican platform! What an amazing woman!
“Rotten Trade Deals” is covered in Chapter 2, and Mr. Trump says, “Open markets are the ideal, but if one guy is cheating the whole time, how is that fair trade?”
The Chapter titles alone will thrill any true old right Constitutional Conservative. Political Correctness Kills, Restraining Judicial Activism, Military Superiority, Trump or a New Constitutional Convention, and so much more!
Trump’s Trial by Fire
On page 145, Phil Jennings, an investment banker, novelist and a former Marine Corps pilot in Vietnam, stated the following:
When I hear Republican and conservative elites lecture the rest of us about Trump’s supposed deviations from the ideological strictures, or his shortcomings as a human being, I think about what Jesus said about casting the first stone. I seriously doubt any of these critics would be able to stand up to the same type of scrutiny they are giving Trump, assuming they had the guts to get into the arena…
I don’t pretend to know if God would vote for Donald Trump, or for that matter what state He is registered to vote in. But I do know that the God of Abraham who shed his grace on America had a purpose and a vision. He would not turn his back on a country and a people that has achieved so much under his blessings. Donald Trump wants to make America great again, and as far as I know, if he did he would be doing God’s work.
The care of our veterans, the supreme court justices, national security, fixing social security, repealing Obamacare, religious liberty, restraining judicial activism, and securing our borders are just a few of the topics. It’s all in this book, and tell me just how many women at nearly 92 years of age could work as hard as Phyllis did with her colleagues to turn out this marvelous book on the candidate they believe will save our Republic. That brilliant mind of hers never wavered, never rested, and never stopped the critical thinking until her last day on earth.
This dear woman, Phyllis Stewart Schlafly, spent her last few months on earth working for the American people’s unalienable God given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Pick the book up at your local bookstore, or order it from Amazon; it’s a definite keeper and a great insight into the man we know as Donald J. Trump!
Thank you Mrs. Schlafly, Mr. Martin, and Mr. Decker for this marvelous book which gives an exclusive inside view of the man, Donald Trump, and his plans to restore America’s greatness. America’s people will be blessed to have Mr. Trump as our 45th president of the United States of America.
