The Left’s Victim Mentality and Diabolical Plot to Divide Us by Race

Written by Robert Knight

Well, it’s official. The only cheap gasoline that President Biden seems to like is the stuff he keeps pouring on the bonfire of racial grievance politics.

“Evil will not win,” he said during his speech in Buffalo in the wake of the supermarket mass murder of mostly Black victims by an unhinged nutcase, white supremacist suspect. “We have to refuse to live in a country where fear and lies are packaged for power and profit.”… Continue Reading

Beware of Pop Up Super PAC(s) Attempt to Smear Congresswoman Mary Miller

Written by John Lopez

Friday morning May 20 in downstate Lincoln, I participated in a political roundtable hosted by the daily POLITICO Illinois Playbook column writer Shia Kapos called “Pancakes and Politics”.  About two dozen people attended for the breakfast meeting ranging from party chairs (both Democrats and Republicans), political consultants, lobbyists and journalists including retired State Journal-Register reporter Bernard Schoenburg.

Given Lincoln is within the geographic boundaries of the 15th Congressional District and the incumbent-vs.-incumbent… Continue Reading

Nominal Frontrunner Catalina Lauf in IL-11 Began Her Descent from a Promising Candidate Months Ago Starting with Lies

By John Lopez

The Republican primary race in the Illinois 11th Congressional District enters the beginning of early voting and vote-by-mail ballots hitting the street with a flurry of activity which will crescendo to its finish on June 28.

As previously written, the six Republican candidates vying to challenge Congressman Bill Foster (D, Naperville) this fall are, in ballot order:

  • Jerry Evans of Warrenville
  • Andrea Heeg of unincorporated Geneva
  • Catalina Lauf of Woodstock
  • Susan Hathaway-Altman of unincorporated Geneva
  • Cassandra Tanner Miller of Elgin
  • Mark Carroll of North Aurora, who was endorsed by Illinois Family Action

As shared at the end of April, while there are six candidates on the ballot, at this point, only three candidates have a legitimate chance to win and in this ranking of 1) Lauf, 2) Evans and 3) Carroll

This article is going to focus on the frontrunner Lauf since she’s the frontrunner.… Continue Reading

The Right to Give Initiative

Written by Paul Caprio

Since the founding of this country, Americans have believed in local individuals helping those in need… not government programs administered by Federal bureaucrats.

Unlike Europe where charity is dispensed by government and state-subsidized and approved churches, America had a very different approach.

For this reason, the Federal Government has allowed individuals to deduct contributions to 501 (c) 3 approved churches and charities on their federal income tax return.

In 2017, as a result of major changes in the IRS tax code, tax rates were lowered on both individuals and corporations.… Continue Reading

The Brooklyn Shooting And The Rise of Black Nationalism

Written by Daniel Horowitz

You can’t blame the FBI for seemingly missing every mass shooter or domestic terrorist. After all, the bureau is stretched thin hatching kidnapping plots in Michigan, investigating garage door ropes, and finding anyone who was within a half a mile of the Capitol on January 6. But what about those who are obsessed with white supremacism? Aren’t they the least bit concerned that most of the recent mass casualty shootings and domestic terror attacks appear to be committed by black nationalists?… Continue Reading

Richard Irvin Only Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Who Broke From Trump…

… assuming Irvin was ever with Trump

Written by John Lopez

Back on June 25, 2019, Aurora Mayor, now “Republican” gubernatorial candidate Richard Irvin, said the following:

“Aurora was built by and is still sustained by hardworking families where every dollar counts.  We applaud Congresswoman Underwood for her stalwart efforts and fully support H.R.1757 and its goal of providing tax relief to working families.”

As the quote said, Irvin applauded U.S. Representative Lauren Underwood (D-Naperville) in the context of her congressional office’s press release of 6/25/19.… Continue Reading

Romney, Murkowski and Collins: Weak-kneed Republicans

Written by Robert Knight

What part of a judge being soft on child pornography offenders don’t they understand?

Having embraced every perversion under the sun and proclaimed it all good, Democrats in the U.S. Senate predictably voted 50-0 on Thursday to affirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.

That would include Joe Manchin. The senator from West Virginia has stood in the gap against some of the Democrats’ worst schemes like “Build Back Better.”… Continue Reading

Eight Steps States Should Take to Stop Biden’s Border Invasion

Written by Daniel Horowitz

In the eyes of the Biden administration, there is still enough of a public health emergency to criminalize the breathing of 2-year-olds and disabled seniors on planes, but not enough of an emergent matter to prevent millions of illegal aliens from all corners of the globe from invading our border.

At present, the rate of illegal alien apprehensions at the border is averaging 7,000 a day, which is an annualized pace of 2.5 million.… Continue Reading

A Judge Who Can’t Say What a Woman Is Should Not Sit On Our Highest Court

Written by Luke Mueller

The confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson have been a relatively peaceful affair. In comparison to the ruthless attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Amy Coney Barrett, there has been relative civility surrounding the D.C Court of Appeals judge. While it is likely that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be confirmed, it is good to take a dive into her actual rulings and responses to questioning, not just her resume.… Continue Reading
