SPOTLIGHT: Why Would We Legalize a City-Destroying Drug?

Written by Benjamin Smith

A recent forum on marijuana, hosted by IFI, is the source of this week’s Spotlight podcast. Many factors contribute to the growing problem of homelessness in America and according to Pastor Phil Kwiatkowski, president of Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, the most common factor is drug use and addiction.  With this reality in mind, how could anyone, especially in Chicago (ranked in the top 10 U.S. cities for homelessness), think that legalizing recreational marijuana is a good idea?… Continue Reading

Hey Liberals, On Media Bias, Please Remove the Plank from Your Own Eye

Written by David Limbaugh

What kind of Twilight Zone are we living in when Democrats pretend that the mainstream media are objective journalists and Fox News is an arm of the Trump administration?

People are always talking about media bias, so why am I bringing this up now?

Well, because of two news alerts that popped up on my phone. First, I read that the Democratic National Committee is refusing to partner with Fox News for the 2020 primary debates.… Continue Reading

Deceitful Lawmakers Seek to Silence Pro-Life Opposition

Written by Laurie Higgins

The stench from the swamp-dredged resolution sponsored by our Big Brothers and Sisters in Springfield and titled “Illinois Family Action-Hate Speech,” hangs over the General Assembly stinkin’ up the joint. For those unaware, this is the pernicious resolution riddled with bigoted language, non sequiturs, red herrings, and outright lies and intended to diminish the rights of IFI and IFA and other social conservatives to speak freely, assemble, and petition our government for the redress of grievances.… Continue Reading

The Dems’ Plan to Make Elections Obsolete

Written by Robert Knight

With a fraudulent Russian collusion claim no longer in their hip pocket, Democrats are still optimistic about recapturing the White House and the U.S. Senate in 2020.

But they are tired of competing.  To ensure the desired outcome, they’ve proposed steps that would finish off the national, two-party system for all intents and purposes.

First, they oppose any efforts to strengthen the border and reduce illegal immigration.  They want to ensure a massive flow of undocumented Democrats and recruits for the Free Stuff Army.… Continue Reading

Socialist Wave Hits Chicago Municipal Elections

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

America’s third largest city could soon have a major socialist legislative block at a time when most American cities have not elected any socialist politicians for generations. Residents of the Windy City woke up Wednesday morning to a dramatic shift in the political landscape after Tuesday’s municipal elections, with at least three council seats won by socialist candidates. The Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (CDSA) and United Working Families (UWF)–once considered “fringe” political parties–have joined in an alliance with the city’s progressive unions to create a budding powerhouse that promises to make radical changes in the city.… Continue Reading

Cognitive Bias and the Democrats

Written by Walker Wildmon

According to Chegg.com, “a cognitive bias is a mistake in reasoning, evaluating, remembering, or other cognitive process, often occurring as a result of holding onto one’s preferences and beliefs regardless of contrary information. Psychologists study cognitive biases as they relate to memory, reasoning, and decision-making.”

The modern day Democratic Party seems to be full of members who struggle with a form of cognitive bias. Look at their behavior.

For over two years, Democrats have accused President Donald J.Continue Reading

Truth and Love or Hate?

Written by Rev. Calvin Lindstrom

I am a pastor and board member of Illinois Family Action (IFA). I am happy to serve with IFA because I believe that Christian principles have an application for politics and society. Man’s main problem is not political. All men and women enter the world as sinners and need a Savior and salvation. The main thrust of God’s Word is to show the only way of salvation that is found in Jesus Christ, but God’s Word also gives guidance and direction to families and civil governments.… Continue Reading

Obama’s DHS Secretary: “We Are Truly in a Crisis” at the Southern Border

Written by Trevor Grant Thomas

No less than Jeh Johnson, who served as Secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration from 2013-2017, has declared the situation at our southern border a “crisis.” Best of all, he did so on MSNBC.

Refusing to take the political bait from “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski when she condescendingly asked, “Do these proposals [from Kirstjen Nielsen, Pres. Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security] even come close to representing America?” Much to Mika’s disappointment, Johnson replied,

When I was in office in Kirstjen Nielsen’s job at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning and there’d be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before.
