I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

Written by David Limbaugh

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have.

The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal obsession with destroying his presidency. Yet Vice President Mike Pence is one of the finest people around, and they can’t stand him, either.… Continue Reading

February Matching Challenge for IFA

I am pleased to announce that in an effort to help Illinois Family ACTION raise $40,000 by the end of February, two generous donors have offered to match donations to IFI all the way up to $20,000! So between now and the end of this month, you can double the impact of your giving!

Last year, a handful of legislative votes stood between pro-family policies and further cultural decay in Springfield. If we had had the support of only three more pro-life lawmakers in the Illinois House, your tax dollars would not be paying for abortions today.… Continue Reading

The Meaning of Rage Over a Campaign Ad

Written by Laurie Higgins

It’s frustrating to see conservatives being played again, this time about Jeanne Ives’ campaign ad.

The ultimate cause of the machinations that result in conservative fear and trembling is the always scheming and bustling Beelzebub. The proximate cause are Leftists who are spinning the ad every which way but due North.

The points being made in the ad are easy-peasy to understand, and the ad is neither mean nor disrespectful.… Continue Reading

Jeanne Ives’ Campaign Ad

Written by Laurie Higgins

Some words about the histrionics and ignorance of “LGBTQAP” activist organization Equality Illinois, former Illinois Republican Party chairman Pat Brady, ACLU of Illinois’ executive director, excessively temperamental gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy, and gubernatorial hopefuls J.B. Pritzker and Daniel Biss.

In paroxysms of faux-outrage, they said a bunch of stupid stuff in a Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Ives ad targets transgender community, immigrants and women who get abortions” about Jeanne Ives‘ new video campaign ad.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Before We Get High

Written by John Biver

This week’s Spotlight features the conversation of IFA’s David E. Smith and Stephanie Trussell, that was originally broadcast this past Saturday in the opening hour of The Stephanie Trussell Show on 890 AM in Chicago.

Stephanie questions him about the recreational marijuana question on the ballot in Cook County.

At the very start of the show, host Trussell spoke about “the significance of a sitting president speaking at the March for Life.” “No other president in modern times has had the courage to come out and speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.” Dave Smith noted that that hasn’t happened in the 45 years since Roe v.Continue Reading

Of Immigration and S—hole Countries

Disclaimer: In the following essay a vulgar term, attributed to president Trump, is used once to frame the discussion.  If a coarse word offends you or you think it inappropriate for a Christian writer to use such words, please close the article now.

By Jonathon Clay de Hale

The news cycles so fast these days that president Trump’s alleged denigration of Haiti and Africa using a repugnant term is already fading from view. But since the topic of immigration is front and center again, it’s worth pausing for a moment to think through the gist of his comment.… Continue Reading
