Here is more on the passing of the great Phyllis Schlafly. First, I did a write-up on her unprecedented and still unmatched grassroots accomplishment:
Here was another write-up I did about her:
This was her last column:
Trump in Mexico Recalls Reagan in Geneva
Donald Trump’s surprise visit to Mexico, where he met the Mexican president and discussed the many contentious issues between our two countries, reminds me of President Reagan’s important trip to Geneva in 1985. Reagan was more than willing to sit down with the Communist leader in an effort to build a personal connection between the two men without sacrificing America’s vital interests in the Cold War.

How Phyllis Schlafly Beat Liberal GOP Kingmakers and Paved Way for Reagan
In her long and consequential career, Phyllis Schlafly accomplished many amazing things, including her almost single-handed defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment, but none of them had a more lasting effect on American politics than her 1964 publication of a paperback book titled “A Choice Not an Echo.”

The Incredible Leadership of Phyllis Schlafly
With the death of Phyllis Schlafly, America has lost an authentic heroine. Schlafly was an American patriot, a true renaissance woman, an exceptional leader, and a wonderful human being. At the age of 92, Phyllis was one day from releasing her latest book.
Here is John Fund writing at National Review:
Phyllis Schlafly: ‘The Sweetheart of the Silent Majority’
The conservative lioness challenged feminism and the conventional wisdom.
Here was the statement posted at the website of Eagle Forum, the organization Schlafly founded:
Today, Phyllis Schlafly passed away in the presence of her family at her home in St. Louis, Missouri.
An iconic American leader whose love for America was surpassed only by her love of God and her family, Phyllis Schlafly, an indomitable pro-family grassroots advocate and organizer, was 92 years old. Mrs. Schlafly was preceded in death by her beloved husband Fred and is survived by six children along with 16 grand and 3 great grandchildren.
Phyllis Schlafly spent an astounding 70 years in public service of her fellow Americans. Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life. She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values. From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values. She authored 27 books and thousands of articles. She spoke tens of thousands of times across the United States.
Her joy in life was evident to all through her smile and wit. Funeral arrangements are pending.
