Cheryl’s an in-demand public speaker and media guest, passionate about topics related to Christianity and the country’s Judeo-Christian roots, the Constitution, politics and policy, United Nations and sovereignty issues, Congress and Capitol Hill – pretty much anything that lends itself to exposing those matters that run counter to freedom, biblical principles and the preservation of America as the greatest country the world’s ever seen.

Her publication credits include the Blaze, the Washington Times, the Washington Examiner, the Heritage Foundation, the Heartland Institute, Lifezette, and more. She has made hundreds of appearances on national and local television and radio (including Fox News, C-SPAN, CBN, Michael Savage radio, Newsmax TV, Steve Bannon’s WarRoom), and in person at various forums and events, to discuss politics and culture, the role of Christianity in government, media bias and limited government principles.

Her second book,”The Devil in DC: Winning Back the Country From the Beast in Washington,” with a foreword by Mike Huckabee, former governor and White House hopeful, tells Christians and patriots how exactly to put the nation back under God’s control and wrench power from the atheists and progressives who have taken root. Check out what others, like radio giant Michael Savage, have said about it so far!

Her first book, “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality,” (foreword: Rep. Louie Gohmert), gives a snapshot look at how government is encroaching at all levels – federal, state and local – in order to better educate and equip patriots with the tools to reclaim our greatest Founding Father gift … the notion that our rights come from God, not government. It’s an eye-opening work that came out at the height of police-citizen tensions in Ferguson, Missouri, over the death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white officer — and that’s still pertinent, during the 2020 protests and riots around the nation over the police killing of George Floyd.
