Li Arellano Earns IFA’s Endorsement!

IFA Staff Reports

We have been a fan of Liandro “Li” Arellano for some time now. We supported him 10 years ago in a razor-thin primary loss when he ran for state representative against the Republican establishment pick. We watched this small businessman bounce back in just a couple years as he ran for and became the Mayor of Dixon, Illinois. He has worked hard to try and turn around his home town which has been rocked by a scandal in which a City of Dixon Comptroller stole more than $50 million from the city to fuel her gambling addictions and lavish lifestyle.… Continue Reading

“This the most important vote in Illinois in our lifetime. Vote David Shestokas for Illinois Attorney General.”

Why does Bobby Piton say this? Because it’s true. The importance of the office of attorney general (AG) is clear.… Continue Reading

Staying Inside The Laws of God

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

One thing I’ve learned by living in the reality of rural America as opposed to the concrete and neon of Washington or New York City is that freedom can be deceiving. Or maybe better said, freedom is often the opposite of what it appears to be.

For example, when I drive through the ranches of Kansas and see cattle roaming freely in the fields, they are always surrounded by a fence.… Continue Reading

Dennis Tipsword Earns IFA’s Endorsement!

IFA Staff Reports

We were very impressed with his presentation and the question and answer session with Woodford County Chief Deputy Sheriff Dennis Tipsword, Jr.  Not only does he have 27 years of law enforcement background, with a specialty in drug interdiction, he owns three small businesses, including an ammunitions machine shop.

Dennis is passionate on the right to life, ethics in government, responsible spending, and preserving Second Amendment rights to protect our families. His experience as a police officer also informs his opposition to the expanded “comprehensive” sex education mandate which, in our opinion, is nothing more than grooming innocent and vulnerable children for early sexual activity.… Continue Reading

Biden’s Pro-Abortion and LGBTQ Crusades

Written by Robert Knight

The gap is growing wider by the day in the culture war. In fact, it is heating up.

The White House “Proclamation on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month, 2022” should help clarify what’s at stake.

This is no small matter. It’s at the heart of the left’s strategy to turn America into a place where no one dares espouse traditional morality. Their ultimate aim is to criminalize Christianity, not usher in tolerance.… Continue Reading

The Abortion States of America

Written by Dr. Paul G. Kengor

Roe v. Wade and so-called “abortion rights” are facing challenges unlike any time before. The chances of abortion being sent back to the states are higher than ever. As that prospect looms, pro-lifers are being treated to a tragic spectacle: “pro-choice” leaders nationwide are stepping forward to do everything within their power to protect unrestricted abortion.

Leading the charge at the state-level are the likes of New York’s new pro-choice governor, Kathy Hochul, who succeeded New York’s old pro-choice governor, Andrew Cuomo, and Governor Gavin Newsom of California.… Continue Reading

More Gun Laws Will Not Stop America’s Moral Decay

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

This past week our nation saw another morally lost young man enter a local school and proceed to shoot and kill 19 children and two teachers. The next shoe to drop was as predictable as the sunrise: Our nation’s elites rushed to their respective podiums to score political points. Their solution? Remove the personal rights of all law-abiding Americans and replace these rights with more laws.

In the minds of our country’s political class, this is the only solution.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Judge John Noverini — Contending for Court

Written by Jenna Smith

Since 1964 – 58 years ago – the Illinois Supreme Court has been controlled by justices put forth by the Democratic Party. Currently serving as a Circuit Court Trial Judge (16th circuit/Kane Co.), Judge John Noverini believes it’s well past time for that imbalance to change. We are pleased to welcome Judge Noverini, a candidate for Illinois Supreme Court Justice from the second judicial district, a district that was recently gerrymandered by the Democrat-majority legislature, to this edition of Spotlight.… Continue Reading
