The Thomas More Society's Amistad Project: Stopping Government Corruption and Election Fraud in its Path
The creation of the Amistad Project is focused on protecting your constitutional rights by stopping the aggressive overreach of government officials misusing emergency police powers. Join us on Wednesday, October 7th at 7:00 p.m. CT as we discuss our current lawsuits and Amistad Project initiatives pre and post-election day.
Phillip D. Kline is the Director of the Amistad Project for the Thomas More Society. He is also currently a professor at Liberty University School of Law, where he has taught since 2009. Prior to teaching at the law school, he served in Kansas as the Johnson County District Attorney where he managed over 8,500 criminal cases each year.
After completing his studies in political science and public relations, Kline earned his J.D. from the University Of Kansas School Of Law where he served as Associate Editor of the Kansas Law Review and Editor of the Kansas Criminal Justice Review.
Kline’s pro-life leadership, as written by columnist Bob Novak, opened a new front on the abortion wars and placed Kansas in the epicenter of the current battle over the sanctity of human life.
Kline has represented states and state agencies in large, complex civil litigation and large international interests in construction mediation, arbitration, and litigation.
