Last week, State Senator Heather Steans (D-Chicago) and State Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago) introduced legislation to legalize recreational marijuana for anyone 21 years-old or older. These bills (HB 2353 and SB 316) would not only legalize the sale and use of marijuana (possession limit of 28 grams which makes about 60 joints), but also allows people to grow marijuana in their homes or on property they own.
That is why this week’s podcast is so very important. … Continue Reading
Post-modern progressives, contrary to popular belief, are not irreligious. They worship at the altar of government power, lifting the chalice of “diversity” and eating the bread of “tolerance.”
While conservatives with liquefied spines avert their gaze from co-ed restrooms and locker rooms in the schools their taxes subsidize, trying to pretend this issue doesn’t matter, the Left rubs their hands together in unseemly glee, knowing they are winning their anti-science war.

This week, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) went after after SCOTUS nominee Neil Gorsuch for studying under the remarkable John M. Finnis.
I wonder if Durbin has read anything by Finnis or even knew his name before Gorsuch was nominated?
Sen. Durbin actually suggested that anyone involved in high levels of government dare not study under Professor Finnis who splits his time between Oxford University in England and the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, is considered one of the foremost Natural Law scholars, and who holds theologically orthodox Catholic beliefs on homoeroticism and marriage.… Continue Reading

The American Faith and Culture Institute published the results of a survey comparing Millennials and the older demographic of Americans and they are eye-raising:
The Worldview Measurement Project, conducted by the American Culture and Faith Institute, reveals that Millennials are, by far, the generation least likely to possess a biblical worldview. While 16% of those in the Boomer and Builder generations possess such an outlook, and just 7% of Baby Busters have a biblical worldview, only one-quarter as many Millennials have a biblical worldview – just 4%!

Where is the Democratic party? The party of political giants like FDR, LBJ and JFK is missing in action along with the letters that defined its heroes. This is now the party of Obama, Schumer, Pelosi – a facsimile of the past and a party without direction and policy guidelines.
America needs a two-party system. Differences are desirable within a Constitutional framework. Parties have served the nation well; albeit exceptions abound.… Continue Reading
“We the People,” begins the U.S. Constitution. Those same three words open the State of Illinois Constitution. Neither document reads “we the politicians” or “we the ambitious.” Our forefathers set it up so we would be governing ourselves. When not enough honest and smart people put the self in self government, we get what we have now: a fiscal and moral mess.

Illinois families have been devastated by Obamacare through rising premiums and higher deductibles. In rural areas of our state, fewer insurers mean less competition and an increase in costs even as choice is limited.
Apparently, we must remind U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and the political leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives that the National Republican Platform calls for the repeal of Obamacare and that many Congressional Republicans ran on a platform of appealing this big government mandate and program.… Continue Reading

The Democrats, as they are want to do, have put themselves into a logical inconsistency:
Indeed, the Democrat Party likes to invoke the Bible only when it comes to imposing their agenda onto the populace; otherwise they sneer at conservatives as bitter clingers.… Continue Reading
‘Transgender’ Use of School Locker Rooms
Policy on the April 4th Ballot
Written by John Biver
Early voting has already begun in some locations. On the ballot will be candidates for municipal, township, park district, school board and other local governing bodies.
Too many voters think these races are not important, so turnout is typically very low. When turnout is lower – every vote carries much more weight. We have the chance to make a greater impact if we vote and encourage like-minded family, friends and neighbors to also vote.… Continue Reading
