Now that Donald Trump has won the presidency, the task of defending his agenda has not ended. It has only just begun. Do not count on the mainstream media for impartiality - countless Americans still believe the widely reported lie that candidate Trump openly mocked a journalist for his disability (the CatholicsforTrump website was among the first to debunk that one).
The Conservative Case for Trump,
published earlier this year by Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum president Ed Martin and Wall Street Journal
editorial page editor Brett M. Decker was rated as one of the best modern endorsements, not of a mere candidate, but common-sense principles. Sadly, Schlafly passed away this Fall, just short of the election of the man she considered the antidote to the numerous challenges facing American today.
This volume is a short, easy read that concludes with transcripts of some of Trump's best speeches. Though covering a wide range of topics, from illegal immigration to judicial activism to the education monopoly to government corruption, among others, the authors cut beneath the sound bites and talking points and present the facts.

Again, this is not dry policy dissertation, but an easy-to-follow discussion of how to reverse the malaise, cronyism and overall paralysis that too many Americans see not as the new normal, but just normal. For some, the brisk news cycle of the past months has left little time for in-depth analysis. For instance, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), has been just three controversial initials, the latest in a slew of dubious trade deals. The Conservative Case for Trump
lays out the facts.
The authors give us their view of the man, as well. In the media-entertainment culture, any ad hominem attack against Trump needs no explanation. If a CNN anchor or a Time
columnist considers President-elect Trump a bigot, their puffed-up moral outrage is all the validation they think John Q. Public needs. How refreshing to read words that praise Donald Trump as a family man! And - gasp!- a moral man! Even Trump's most ardent supporters fumble and look nervously at the floor when confronted with their guy's controversial past. He will never achieve sainthood, but, according to Schlafly, we need not be so defensive, either.
Finally, The Conservative Case for Trump
is a fitting tribute to its main author. The legacy of Phyllis Schlafly is a volume unto itself, but her final work gives hope that all she championed in her public life will endure well beyond Trump's presidency. Not an ounce of vanity here, Schlafly was never about herself. But her passion for American exceptionalism colors every page of the book. Expect your blood to boil at the current state of affairs (lousy trade deals, the long arm of political correctness). Expect conservative orthodoxy to be occasionally challenged. Trump may not be a William F. Buckley ideologue, but what can be more conservative than saving the country we love? This is a great read, buy a copy today.
Final note: This hardcover edition is small, about the size of a paperback, and fits easily in a purse or glove compartment. Still, it is a handsome addition to any conservative library.
