Let me paint a picture for you. America is suffering under the weight of eight years of failed liberal policies, government has expanded, people are ready for change, and a strong conservative Republican candidate is replacing a liberal Democrat president. If you were to guess this is February 2017, you’d be right. However, the same circumstances were true in February 1969, when the Phyllis Schlafly Report headlined the article “Patronage Is the Name of the Game.” Phyllis knew that electing the right people is only the first step to real change. The next step is to surround the right person with a strong and competent team of staff and advisors.

When Donald Trump took office on January 20, Barack Obama did not leave Washington, D.C. for a private life, as all of his recent predecessors have done. He remains on the scene to help lead the insurgency against Trump. The Obamas moved into a $5 million mansion just two miles from the White House. The mansion is owned by Joe Lockhart, who was the White House press secretary when Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998.

While liberals around the country were busy complaining about President Trump’s travel ban that sought to stop the onslaught of outrageous aggression, the liberals in California made their own travel ban against religious expression. According to a new California law, public universities are no longer allowed to send students to states that oppose gay rights. Students that have prepared for months to make presentations of their research have been told to cancel their plans. Athletes have been told not to expect any games with rivaling teams from states like Tennessee, Kansas, or North Carolina. The logic is that California doesn’t want taxpayer dollars going to states that hold conservative, pro-family principles.

Fifty Years of the Phyllis Schlafly Report: Johnson Amendment Recalls the "Determined Drive Against Churches"
The Founding Fathers recognized that the U.S. Constitution should not be easily amended. That is why they determined that amendments must pass both houses of Congress and be approved by three-fourths of the state legislatures, the most stringent majority requirement since the Articles of Confederation. This notion of a “living” constitution is a complete non sequitur to the actions taken by the Framers. Because of this great weight placed on the passage of constitutional amendments, there is an equally great weight placed behind the authority of amendments when they are passed. The authority of amendments is paramount to understanding the implications of what the Equal Rights Amendment would have done to the American system of government. Phyllis Schlafly understood this gravity better than most, which equipped her to write about the implications of ERA on religious freedom in the March 1975 Phyllis Schlafly Report.
