Phyllis Schlafly hopes conservatives can stop Obamacare, Common Core
By Patrick B. McGuigan | Oklahoma Watchdog | From Watchdog.org
OKLAHOMA CITY — Seemingly inexhaustable at the age of 89, national conservative leader Phyllis Schlafly believes advocates of limited government will roll back both the Affordable Care Act — Barack Obama‘s signal achievement as president — and the bipartisan push for creation of national Common Core State Standards for curriculum and instruction in public schools.
In an interview during a recent visit to the Sooner State, Schlafly, a famed constitutional lawyer from St. Louis, told Oklahoma Watchdog that conservatives “lucked out” in being blamed for the shutdown.

Conservative Icon Schlafly Blasts Federal Immigration Proposals
by Patrick B. McGuigan | Oklahoma Watchdog | From Watchdog.org
OKLAHOMA CITY – Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly has blasted new federal proposals to allow an easier path to citizenship for undocumented aliens.
In an interview with Oklahoma Watchdog, Schlafly said, “I consider it suicide for the country to pass that. The only people who want it are the Chambers of Commerce and the big money people.
“They are already up there in Washington lobbying for the Senate bill. They want even more immigration. They have a chance to get it because of the big donors who want the cheap labor.”
Schlafly continued, “If the Republicans don’t defeat this amnesty bill, the Republican Party will be a permanent minority. This is just the practical result of the bill.” As for the measure’s advocates, she asserted, “They’re not really interested in immigration, they’re interested in building and preserving big government.”
Schlafly spoke in Oklahoma City at a tribute to Bunny Chambers, long-time leader of the Oklahoma Eagle Forum.

The 2011 Oklahoma Eagle Forum Dinner was a huge success. Many thanks to everyone involved, as well as those who so graciously donated to the organization. Funds raised after costs are covered will go to a scholarship fund to send students to Washington, D.C. for the annual Eagle Forum Collegians Summit.
Read what conservative journalist Pat McGuigan wrote of Phyllis Schlafly’s visit:
“In her keynote address, Mrs. Schlafly focused on some of the same themes covered in an exclusive interview with CapitolBeatOK, opposing federal involvement in public school education policy and funding, strongly opposing the drive for a Constitutional Convention, and standing against the Obama administration’s spending and taxation priorities.” Read more.
“In an interview with CapitolBeatOK, Schlafly decried federal involvement in public education, assessed the 2012 Republican presidential field, defended the Electoral College and gave a short list of conservative leaders she has long admired.
Schlafly said Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin was mistaken in sending a “Race to the Top” grant submission to the U.S. Department of Education. Schlafly said, “It’s a bribe, pure and simple.” It’s a bribe to do what the federal government wants you to do.” Read more.
“Organizing the dinner featuring Schlafly is Bunny Chambers, president of Oklahoma Eagle Forum for the past 12 years. Eagle Forum is a conservative multi-issue organization that characterizes itself as “a national pro-family, non-denominational, non-partisan volunteer organization.” Among many other civic and political activities, Chambers was the Republican National Committeewoman for Oklahoma from 1996-2008.” Read more.
