Judge orders pro-Trump articles removed

The Gateway Pundit reports from

Even after her death conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly is still being attacked by the left, #NeverTrumpers and activist judges.

Illinois Judge John B. Barberis has ordered Eagle Forum (Schlafly’s website) to remove all pro-Trump articles posted after April 10, 2016.

Phyllis Schlafly was an early Donald Trump supporter.

This week an activist Illinois judge ordered Eagle Forum to remove all pro-Trump articles after April 10, 2016.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:
Martin said he was unavailable for an interview but said in an email the temporary ruling “does not affect our work in any way. Courts do not properly pick leaders of political organizations. The court ruled without hearing any testimony, and mistakes happen that way. I’m confident this unprecedented ruling will be overturned on appeal.” ...

Fault lines opened up when Phyllis Schlafly refused to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for the Republican nomination for president in late 2015, the suit said. In February, Cori used the Schlafly database to orchestrate a robocall for Cruz before he won Iowa’s GOP caucus.

Trump tweeted that “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!”

Phyllis Schlafly and Martin alleged that their fallout with the board started in part because of Schlafly’s public endorsement of Trump.

“The anti-Trump people have gone way too far,” Martin said in an email. “This won’t slow us down. We have more support now than when we started.”

Martin said that although he was suspended from Eagle Forum, he would remain active with a group called Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund, which he said had published a best-selling pro-Trump book.

He said he was also leading a group called Phyllis Schlafly’s American Eagles, “to address the issue of American sovereignty.”


  1. God Bless Ed for fighting for Phyllis and her legacy - let's make America great again!

    1. Phyllis would not fight like this. She'd be horrified that her family is ruining her reputation by fighting and smearing Christians along the way

  2. I am a great follower of Phyllis and a Trump supporter. Judge Barberis was on my balot in my area and I wanted information on him and ran across your comments. I think you did him a disservice. It wouldn’t take much to call his office and see where he stands vs publishing a skewed polling service ran by democrats (which ranked him low but not the lowest in IL). I called him up. He is an avid Trump supporter. He has a shooting range on his land. He is a good man. Full of integrity. He was unbiased in his rulings and has never had any of his rulings overturned. He is ruling in a very democrate territory. You are lucky to get him and not one of them. Please correct your article. Inform yourself. And this case is not over. So don’t slander and try to swing votes on a pending case. Christians need to stick together. You won’t find a more conservative judge in Madison county

  3. I am horrified that in USA a Judge can be SO NARROWMINDED as to take a POLITICAL STANCE and try to pervert the course of politics by restricting freedom of speech! Here in AUSTRALIA, he would be tried by a panel of Judges under the Attorney General's guidance and most likely be removed or retired forthwith ASAP, and restitution be made, partly from his own unds.

  4. The thing is this judge did not take a side. That's why this author is so mad. The judge is actually a republican and very pro trump. But in the case he has to be unbiased. We need more judges like him
