Phyllis Schlafly passed away on September 5, 2016, the day before the release of this book. In it, she addresses her fellow conservatives with a passionate plea to ignore establishment kingmakers and support controversial GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“The stakes are unmistakably high,” Schlafly writes in the introduction. “I know that some well-meaning conservatives find Trump puzzling or even offensive, but I trust that this book—the culmination, for me, of more than seventy years of active involvement in Republican politics—might help sway them.”

Schlafly, the conservative icon whose celebrated classic A Choice Not An Echo (over 3 million copies sold) upended the 1964 Republican Convention, persuasively argues that Donald Trump is worthy of every conservative’s vote. Joined by Ed Martin, the former head of the Missouri Republican Party, and Brett Decker, formerly an editorial writer with the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Times, Schlafly presents the real Trump, the Trump she and her colleagues have met with and interviewed, the Trump who is far more conservative than you think.

. . . President Obama’s effort to fundamentally transform America is on the brink of success—despite our having elected Republican majorities in both houses of Congress. The GOP has proven ineffectual at stopping Obama, who has thrown open the gates to illegal immigrants; emasculated our military; rules by decree through presidential orders; waged the most expensive and extreme culture war in American history to the point of dictating to the nation that men should be allowed into women’s changing rooms, restrooms, and locker rooms; exploded the national debt to an eye-popping $20 trillion; and built a legacy of foreign policy disasters from the rise of ISIS and the chaos of Libya and Syria to an emboldened China and Iran.

If Hillary Clinton is elected president, she will take Obama’s transformation of America to the next level. She has pledged to do the following:

  • On Immigration, continue Obama’s flouting of our nation’s laws: “If Congress won’t act, I’ll defend President Obama’s executive actions—and I’ll go even further,” she says, flooding the country with even more immigrants, all on a fast-track to citizenship.
  • On Guns, executive orders that could threaten our Second Amendment rights: “If Congress refuses to act to end the epidemic of gun violence, I’ll take administrative action to do so,” she tweeted,.
  • On Obamacare, more mandates: “I’ll defend the Affordable Care Act, and build on its successes . . . including more options for undocumented people . . .
  • On Energy, more “green’ regulations: I don’t think we need to have pipelines bringing dirty oil . . .  across our borders. . .
  • On Abortion, more government-funding for Planned Parenthood, America’s biggest abortion mill. . .
  • On Gay “Marriage,” it’s just the beginning: “The US Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality represents America at its best . . .”

In The Conservative Case for Trump, Schlafly reveals:

  • How Trump’s appointees to the Supreme Court (on which Schlafly advised him) could be the most consequential in a century
  • How, unlike any other Republican, Trump could actually fix the nation’s immigration mess
  • Why his economic platform could spark an economic revival on the scale of the Reagan boom of the 1980s (it is based on much the same plan)
  • How Trump will defend the First Amendment—guaranteeing freedom of speech and religion—against an ever more dictatorial Left
  • Why Trump’s fresh thinking on defense and foreign policy is long overdue—and could send terrorism into rapid retreat

Donald Trump is the most controversial Republican presidential candidate since Barry Goldwater, and could be the most conservative and successful president since Ronald Reagan. In her very last contribution to the conservative movement, Phyllis Schlafly, the “sweet-heart of the Silent Majority,” makes an irrefutable case that needs to be shared with every wavering voter. Nothing less than the future of our country is at stake.
