Defending the family

Activities and Accomplishments

Public Advocate helped, and continues to help, educate the public on various policy issues by numerous communications to its supporters.

Eugene Delgaudio was drafted in 1981 to run a small non-profit political action group, Public Advocate of the United States, Inc., with the express mission to "take on hypocrisy and corruption in Washington ignored by the major media".

For 30 years with Delgaudio at the helm, now as president, Public Advocate has taken on a long list of liberals in a major and minor states, most public forums and mediums (both major party conventions, rallies, radio, news show and the internet, etc.) .

In the year 2000, Delgaudio was elected and holds public office. He's defended Ronald Reagan and traditional values from the beginning. In return the liberals and the so-called Homosexual Lobby rain constant and daily verbal and print assaults on Public Advocate and its top spokesman.

Never predictable, always on target, Public Advocate uses legal briefs, Congressional testimony, direct political action, grass-roots lobbying, post cards, mass leafleting, robo calling millions, high speed internet, many other low budget tactics and petition drives to marshall forces. Along with news conferences and quick response team that can unintentionally stall a Presidential motorcade or accidentally drown out a Presidential news conference with a genuine citizens uprising, Public Advocate has been routinely shadowed by liberal groups formed solely to fight Public Advocate.

Public Advocate has engineered over 100 political actions driving liberals to silence or embarassing retreat. Even when losing a major battle, (legislative, balloting or Senate confirmation), Public Advocate has ridden to counter attack.

After Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich, Public Advocate is the group most Washington insiders hate the most. And its the group that most traditional conservatives who are in the battle for traditional values call on when all is lost or getting worse.

Legal Briefs By Our Legal Team

Public Advocate has joined 34 amicus briefs that filed by our legal counsel-- listed below. Eugene Delgaudio as President has often decided to apply non-traditional and traditional methods. In the case of the Boy Scouts of America defense, several briefs over years, it was relevant always to point out the many victims exposed to adverse policy changes proposed by the homosexual lobbies. And to the present day defending private retail stores run by Christians or charities run by the Little Sisters, we appeal to principles sometimes left out of consideration.

Other topics include (partial list)

2008-2011

Public Advocate continued to file legal briefs before federal courts, stage demonstrations, hold news conferences and impact the national debate on the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court which has impacted the nation and, perhaps, the world.

2007

Public Advocate produced the acclaimed "Moses And Teletubbies Under Arrest" video which is posted on many free video blogsites and has been seen by 100,000 viewers. In true political satire, PA portrays the Thought Control Police patrolling Senate Office buildings in Washington DC to make sure no politically incorrect statements are spoken by Christians, Moses, or even the Teletubbies under the new liberal regime in the House of Representatives and Senate with the passage of the Thought Control bill.

2006

Public Advocate conducted their "Kennedy Sobriety Checkpoint" which has been a success.

Checkpoints on Capitol Hill in Washington to protect citizens against Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy (D-Ma.) or Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) consistently resulted in no impaired drivers named Congressman or Senator Kennedy being stopped for drunken driving. And many other projects.

2005

Condemned the Conservative Political Action Conference for hosting gay lobbies as co-sponsors, sponsored political street theater attacking proposed Thought Control legislation in the Senate, defended the pro-life cause in Florida asking for Terri Schiavo to be spared, defended attacks on Public Advocate by liberal radio network and Democratic National Committee's Daily Kos falsely accusing Public Advocate, launched a critically important Judicial Nomination ballot of top conservative jurists for the Supreme Court.


Asked the Internal Revenue Service to issue a ruling , which they did, stating there can be No Joint Tax Filling for Gay Couples, continued to push humor as a weapon of choice in combatting liberals with a top ten questions liberal Senators should ask judicial nominees, called for Criminal charges to be filed against the Kennedy family, supported John Roberts, and a week later opposed John Roberts in a nationally reported event, warned President George Bush not to nominate a liberal jurist and promised political war in published interviews, declared political war against the Bush Administration with the Harriet Miers nomination, conducted daily news events against the nomination of Harriet Miers until her withdrawal and then worked to confirm Sam Alito to the Supreme Court. No other national political organization did as much with as little resources in such a short amount of time as Public Advocate in contributing and confronting the national debate on the direction of the Supreme Court.

2000-2004

Public Advocate worked on the following three federal legislative issues:

  • the enactment of Defense of Marriage Act;
  • the repeal of the Marriage Penalty Tax; and
  • the defeat of Ted Kennedy's Thought Control Bill (so-called Hate Crimes legislation).

Public Advocate used news conferences, interviews, post card mailings and street theater to attract public support. To support this legislation, Public Advocate staff traveled to 40 cities in 7 states (Pennsylvania, New York, California, Florida, Vermont, Virginia, New Hampshire) and Washington, D.C.

Public Advocate used "street theater" in Washington, D.C. to defend Dr. Laura's Radio program against the gay rights lobby, which was attacking her religious and moral beliefs and seeking to have her program barred from radio stations.

Public Advocate successfully worked for the passage of the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act in the House and Senate Education Conference Committee, where it became part of the Education Bill signed by the President. Public Advocate fought a strong movement to strike it quietly from the legislation. As part of this effort, Public Advocate staff went to more than 30 Senate offices and presented 100,000 petitions, postcards, and letters in favor of this legislation in the Senate.

Public Advocate fought the nomination of the liberal, pro-homosexual rights Massachusetts Governor Paul Cellucci to become Ambassador to Canada. Activities included:

  • holding demonstrations against the Cellucci nomination, delivery of small beach sand Public pails that said "Don't dig too deep with Cellucci" (referring to the Big Ditch scandal in Massachusetts);
  • distributing to every Senate office materials that documented Governor Cellucci's pro-gay rights agenda in Massachusetts;
  • distributing over 100,000 "Cellucci dollars" that pointed out the $6 Billion overrun in the "Big Dig" in Boston, some of which was underwritten by federal dollars; and
  • delivering more than 50,000 petitions to Senate offices opposing the Cellucci nomination.
  • Public Advocate opposed the liberal inquisition by the Senate Judiciary Committee against Senator John Ashcroft's appointment as Attorney General by President Bush. Public Advocate staged "Joe Biden Hiring Inquisitions," visiting all 100 Senate offices in the person of a group of black-hooded inquisitors who visited Senate offices and handed out questionnaires, to simulate the ridiculous questions being asked by Senate Joe Biden of then-Attorney General nominee John Ashcroft.
  • Public Advocate initiated or supported various public interest litigation cases, as follows:
    • Amicus Brief in Support of Petition for Certiorari Filed by Boy Scouts Boy Scouts of America and Monmouth Council, Boy Scouts of America v. James Dale
      U.S. Supreme Court
      November 26, 1999; Certiorari granted January 14, 2000
      Lead Amicus: Public Advocate of the United States
      Additional Amicus: Lincoln Institute for Research and Education
      Purpose: Encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to grant Certiorari and review the decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court (discussed below).

      Additional Amici: Lincoln Institute for Research and Education, Committee to Protect the Family Foundation, Concerned Women for America, and National Criminal Justice Council
      Purpose: Encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court, which would have forced the Boy Scouts to make homosexual advocate James Dale an assistant scoutmaster, in violation of their First Amendment right of expressive association, which allows them to exclude homosexuals from positions of leadership.
    • Amicus Brief in Support of Respondents
      Carol M. Browner, et al. v. American Trucking Associations, et al.
      U.S. Supreme Court
      September 11, 2000
      Lead Amicus: Lincoln Institute for Research and Education
      Additional Amici: American Sovereignty Action Project, Gun Owners Foundation, Public Advocate of the United States, American Policy Center, 60 Plus, True Blue Freedom, and U.S. Border Control
      Purpose: Encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to determine that Section 109 of the Clean Air Act, as interpreted by the Environmental Protection Agency in setting revised National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone and particulate matter, effects an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power.
    • Amicus Brief in Support of Appellant
      J. Barrett Hyman, M.D. v. City of Louisville, et al.
      U.S. Court of Appeals, 6 th Cir.
      July 9, 2001
      Lead Amicus: Public Advocate of the United States
      Additional Amici: Citizens United Foundation, Lincoln Institute for Research and Education, Concerned Women for America, and Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund
      Purpose: Encourage the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6 th Circuit to strike down the City of Louisville and County of Jefferson, Kentucky ordinances which prohibit discrimination in employment upon the basis of "sexual orientation" or "gender identity," terms which are loosely defined in the ordinances, which do not even expressly require knowledge or intent, and carry substantial penalties. Dr. J. Barrett Hyman, a medical doctor specializing in gynecology in the City of Louisville, filed suit to have the ordinances declared unconstitutional because they would violate teachings in the Bible as well as guarantees of religious freedom and freedom of speech under the U.S. Constitution. This amicus curiae brief argued that the First Amendment does not permit government prohibition of actions where the public does not even understand what conduct is in issue.
    • Petition for Writ of Certiorari - Public Advocate of the United States provided financial support for public interest litigation
      Edgar Morales, Laique Rehman, Nouhad K. Bassila, George Breckendridge, and William Jeffrey Van Fleet v. Don Evans, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and Kenneth Prewitt, Director of the United States Bureau of the Census
      U.S. Supreme Court
      January 8, 2002
      Purpose: Encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to review a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5 th Circuit that denied a challenge to the constitutionality of the forms used in Census 2000. At issue is whether Congress has the power to require, under penalty of law, that the American people answer questions on race, employment, housing, and other subjects invading their privacy and totally unrelated to the two express constitutional purposes of the decennial census - apportionment of representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the imposition of direct taxes.
