Republican Conservative for Utah Senate Race

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." -- Ronald Reagan


Eagar Joins Campaign to Take Back Medicine

Senate candidate is in the thick of a national fight against socialized healthcare

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, January 26, 2010. Cherilyn Eagar is leading a national campaign to against nationalized health care called "Operation 2010: Take Back Medicine." On Wednesday, January 27, 2010, at noon Mountain Time, she will host the first of two health care webinars called "Patient Power: Take Back Medicine NOW!" The second webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 2, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. especially for doctors called "How Doctors Can Protect Their Profession from a Hostile Government Takeover." The webinars will feature representatives and doctors from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a nationwide group representing medical professionals who oppose nationalized health care. Concerned citizens from all across the nation are invited to join these FREE Town Hall Webinars to learn about a national strategy to take this legislation down.

With the election of Scott Brown (R-MA) as Massachusetts' new senator, the Democrat's 60-vote majority has evaporated, and passage of their socialized medicine bill is in jeopardy. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has admitted she doesn't have the votes to pass that bill in the House of Representatives. Eagar explains her reservation, "Brown was that critical number 41, but his post-campaign comments sounded more like BennettCare, another version of government managed health care. Ninety-nine percent of Republicans most likely to vote in Utah do not even believe that health care is a Constitutional right. We will watch what happens. One thing we know: This battle is not over, and it is winnable. Freedom-loving Americans now stand in a position of strength - and we must work together to defeat any form of nationalized health care." Details on the Webinar and links to join:

Wednesday, January 27, 2010, from noon to 1:00 p.m. (Mountain Time)

For healthcare users, the "Patient Power: Take Back Medicine Now!" webinar will be held on January 27. The featured presenter will be Kathryn Serkes, Director of Policy and Public Affairs for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS),* an organization fighting to stop the Democratic Party's healthcare legislation. She will share the strategy around which Americans must unite.


Tuesday, February 2, 2010, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. (Mountain Time)

For healthcare professionals, and anyone else who wants to listen in, a webinar entitled, "How Doctors Can Protect Their Profession from a Hostile Government Takeover" will be held on February 2.

Ms. Serkes will share what you can do as a doctor to protect your profession from nationalized health care. She'll be joined by two physicians with a patient-doctor direct practice model: Dr. Madrigal-Dersch and Dr. Watson work directly for their patients, not for third parties like insurance companies and government programs.

Phyllis Schlafly Comes to Utah

Eagar For Senate fundraiser features a visit by the First Lady of Conservatism

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, January 13, 2010. Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the National Eagle Forum and first lady of the conservative movement, is coming to Salt Lake on Saturday, January 16. She will address the Utah Eagle Forum's annual convention and be the guest of senate candidate Cherilyn Eagar at a private reception that evening. Mrs. Schlafly's Eagle Forum was the first national organization to endorse Eagar's senate run against Sen. Bob Bennett.

Eagar says, "Because of Phyllis' leadership, thousands of women rallied to protect women and the traditional family from a federal power grab. Phyllis has been a role model for me throughout my life, and I'm honored to have her endorsement. The Eagle Forum -- nationally and in this state -- has been a leader in conservative issues over the years. I deeply admire the strength, courage and class of this lady, who has done more to protect women, children and the family than any other woman in my lifetime. At age 85, she's still going strong as ever."

Mrs. Schlafly first came to national prominence in the 1970s by fighting the Equal Rights Amendment. She formed the National Eagle Forum to lead the pro-family movement, publishes The Phyllis Schlafly Report and remains a popular lecturer. One of the "ground troops" in the ERA battle was Cherilyn Eagar, then just starting her fight for conservative principles, which continues today. The two have been close friends ever since.

The reception will be held at the Rhodes Bake-n-Serv corporate headquarters, 5121 Murray Blvd., Murray, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Mrs. Schlafly will speak briefly to the group before attending a dinner at the Eagle Forum Convention. The suggested minimum donation for those who'd like to meet Cherilyn Eagar and Mrs. Schlafly is $100.

The Eagle Forum Convention opens at the Larry H. Miller Campus of Salt Lake Community College in Sandy at 9:00 a.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m. Representatives Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz, State Senator Chris Buttars, State Representative Brad Daw and members of the Patrick Henry Caucus will speak. At 2:30 p.m., the U.S. Senate candidates will answer questions from the audience.

Eagar Calls for American Medical Association Boycott

Senate candidate announces Operation 2010 Aims to Take Back Medicine

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, January 7, 2010. Cherilyn Eagar, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate and daughter of the late Samuel Kenneth Bacon, M.D., an internationally-respected surgeon from Hollywood, California, announced today a six-step campaign she is calling "Operation 2010: Take Back Medicine."

Eagar says, "This Federally-mandated health care proposal is not only an unconstitutional, illegal force of sale, but it is, of all the government-run ponzi schemes, the worst nightmare America has ever considered. Americans must now take more assertive steps to fight it."

During a recent radio interview, Eagar gave her support to pending legal challenges and asked doctors to withdraw their membership from the American Medical Association (AMA). The AMA now represents only 17% of doctors, yet it has the power to decide accreditation standards and has a conflict of interest with its ownership of the CPT codes combined with the government's influence over fee-setting for all. Eagar calls it "medicine's union-monopoly."

"The phone lines lit up, and I knew we had struck a resounding chord. To my surprise, the next day the AMA's D.C. office contacted me. They're definitely feeling the heat." Eagar explained that the AMA has betrayed the American people by playing the good ol' boy rules of back-room deals." "Don't get me wrong," Eagar emphasized, "both genders belong to this club, and I plan to help dismantle it after elected."

Eagar is asking Utahns and Americans everywhere to join "Operation 2010" to take down national health care "before it gets any more traction." She is asking people to throw their support behind the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons petition drive found at www.TakeBackMedicine.com and to take the following steps:

1. Call the American Medical Association in Washington D. C. (202-789-7400), and your state affiliates today. According to the AMA, 16 states do not support the AMA's position. Let them know you oppose their support of Federally-managed health care, that the legislation is unconstitutional, and that it violates the 10th Amendment which affirms states' sovereignty.

2. Demand that the AMA stop supporting Federally-run plans. The AMA has been on record endorsing the Federal government's managed economy strategies, rather than the free market. Government management has the unintended consequence of higher costs.

3. Patients: Call your doctors and ask them two questions:
Do you favor Federally-managed health care? If so, diplomatically let them know you will no longer be using their services.
Are you among the 17% of doctors who still belong to the AMA or its state affiliate? If your doctor opposes Federally-managed health care schemes, and/or if they are still members of the AMA, ask them to join you in the "Operation 2010: Take Back Medicine" campaign, and to withdraw their membership and join the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) instead.

4. Doctors: Join AAPS today by visiting the AAPS.org website.*

5. Doctors and patients: Sign the petition today at TakeBackMedicine.com.*

6. Doctors and patients: Plan to attend the Fall National Conference of the AAPS to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah in September 2010. Register at AAPS.org.*

"Obviously, I'm passionate about this cause," says Eagar. "My parents helped Reagan get started in politics with a speech to the California Medical Association about Medicare and the dangers of socialized medicine. The day the first Medicare bill passed, he walked through the door and said, 'Today is the first day of the end of quality medicine in America.' He was definitely a prophet. If my parents were here today, I know they'd be proud of what we're doing and they'd be cheering us on."

Eagar's recent random survey of 1,500 Utahns most likely to vote in a Republican Primary had a 17% response rate. It showed that the overwhelming majority of Utah Republicans do not want the Federal government to be in control of health care. "In fact, 99.2% said that health care is not even a Constitutional right. I agree. This fight has just begun," the 30-plus year seasoned grassroots activist said.
