Hillary Clinton is working alongside billionaire Tom Steyer to sow a garden of climate change paranoia. Clinton is scaring young voters into supporting her campaign by leading them to believe that a Republican president will unleash a climate apocalypse.
Calling Millennial voters the 2016 presidential election’s “biggest cohort,” Steyer announced his plan last month to inject $25 million into targeting young voters. Specifically, Steyer will allocate millions toward an aggressive ground campaign based on climate alarmism. The goal? Getting the youth vote out for Clinton.
Money men like Steyer don’t view me and my peers as individuals. In Steyer’s own words, we are little more than “swing” voters who “can make a difference” in a general election in the battleground states of Illinois, New Hampshire, Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio and Pennsylvania.… Continue Reading
U.S. public opinion on abortion was largely steady over the past year, as Americans remained split on the morality of abortion as well as in their preferences for the “pro-choice” vs. “pro-life” labels. The vast majority of adults continue to believe abortion should be legal to some extent, with 29% saying it should be legal in all circumstances and 50% favoring legality under certain circumstances.

THE NATIONAL HISPANIC CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE LOGO
Written by Steve Jordahl
The leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference implies that the votes of millions of born-again Hispanics in America are up for grabs in the coming presidential election.
Hispanic evangelicals met in Anaheim, California, last weekend for what was tabbed as “Latin Leaders Fest.” The two-day event featured speakers such as evangelist Luis Palau and Pastor Alberto Delgado, and the husband-and-wife worship team Nic Gonzales and Jaci Velasquez.
During the gathering, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump made video pitches to the Latin Leaders Fest. Not surprisingly, both presidential candidates addressed immigration:
Clinton: “In this campaign I’ve met families across our country who live in fear of being torn apart by a broken immigration system.”
Both major political parties are now locked in a death struggle. The irony is that they are attempting not to annihilate each other, but rather to survive the onslaught of the voters. No longer is the struggle between Democrat and Republican; it is between the landed gentry and the peasants.
Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are the villains, as far as the ensconced parties are concerned. Thus, we have the very bizarre spectacle of Republicans saying that, in a general election, they will defect, preferring Hillary Clinton to Trump, and Democrats vowing to vote for Trump rather than for Clinton. No author of political fiction would have proposed so implausible a scenario, and yet it has become real.
Despite its surrealistic appearance, this was a long time in coming. … Continue Reading
The 2016 Illinois Republican Convention was held in Peoria this past weekend on Friday and Saturday. We are thrilled to report that leftists within the party failed to advance their agenda in the newly adopted 2016 Illinois GOP Platform.
If fact, Illinois Republicans strengthened the Right to Life plank in the platform and rejected an attempt to water down and distort the Marriage and Family plank!
THANK YOU to all of you who took time last week to contact the members of the platform committee and helped to spread the word of the attempt to subvert the Marriage and Family plank. YOU made a huge difference.
The eighteen members of the platform committee (one appointee from each of Illinois’ congressional districts) met on Friday to consider new language for section VII of the platform–the plank on Marriage and Family.… Continue Reading
Friday morning I sent this text message to Pat Brady who sits on the Illinois GOP Platform Committee that proposed removing the marriage plank that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman:
“Do not replace the marriage plank with the proposed RINO/Libertarian plank that disrespects the view that marriage has an intrinsic nature, [and the view] that children have an intrinsic right to be raised by a mother and a father whenever possible. The language in this pernicious plank necessarily endorses the legal recognition of plural unions. Evidently, RINOs/Libertarians on the committee have no understanding of the essential role marriage has in the health and survival of any society. Mr. Brady, you’ve done enough damage to IL.”
Brady responded, “F**k u.”
Since I’ve never met Brady or talked to him on the phone, and since he responded two minutes after I sent it, it is highly unlikely he knew who sent the text.… Continue Reading
There are reports that there is a majority on the Illinois Republican Party Platform Committee who aren’t exactly well-read. Get ready to cringe.
The word on the street is that there are geniuses who think endorsing the radical left-wing (cultural Marxist) LGBT agenda is a good fit for the GOP. Illinois Review is reporting this troubling news:
Eleven of the 18 members of the Illinois Republican Party platform committee reportedly are agreed that the one-man, one-woman marriage plank should be removed from the 2016 platform….Committee members that support removing the section say the IL GOP’s position preferring one-man/one-woman marriage over same sex marriage is viewed negatively by younger voters that are more libertarian on the issue.
Some Illinois Republicans want to stay away from “controversial” issues. They think that removing the traditional marriage plank will somehow help liberal Republicans who are “hurt” by the platform in their swing districts. First, if they think that they are going to avoid controversy by removing this important plank, they are woefully wrong. Secondly, the Illinois GOP has its fair share of RINOs elected to office, who are the source of the problem at hand; but clearly demonstrating that liberal Republicans can win with the current state platform.
There is no upside for the Illinois Republican Party to water down the social issues in the platform. On the contrary, it will only result in a massive fight at the convention and disunity among Republicans. Social conservatives do the lions share of grass roots work in Illinois and watering down the platform will make them less inclined to work hard for candidates running for office.… Continue Reading
I am reluctantly coming to you to ask you for your financial help, but I need to ask you: Will you consider an online donation of $15 or more to support the work of Illinois Family Action (IFA)?
Five members of the Illinois Family organization are going to the Illinois Republican Party convention this weekend, not only to promote our pro-life, pro-family, pro-marriage message, but to defend the current Platform from liberal attempts to weaken the life and marriage planks. Planks I helped to defend during the last convention in 2012 as a member of the platform committee. This year, I was not able to secure a spot on this vital committee.
A few weeks ago we alerted you to the fact that Pat Brady, the disgraced former chairman of the Illinois GOP who went to work for the radical ACLU, is a member of the platform committee this year. … Continue Reading
Democrats continue their 200-year tradition of setting low standards for African Americans.
“Rather I should die a thousand times … than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” – Robert Byrd, Democrat Senator (1959 through 2010) and founder of the Sophia, West Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan (150 members)
