Dr. Eric Wallace Needs Your Help to Get on the Ballot!

Dr. Eric Wallace is running for the open 40th Illinois State Senate seat due to the retirement of progressive anti-life, anti-family Toi Hutchinson, who stepped down to become Illinois’ new pot czar. Wallace is a man with unmovable integrity and a steadfast determination to rebuild the moral fiber of our state and culture – qualities we need more of in Springfield. This district includes areas of Chicago Heights, Olympia Fields, Park Forest, Manhattan and even Peotone, Bourbonnais, Kankakee and Herscher.

Chicago Is Tough On Guns And Soft On Crime, And The People Suffer

Written by Daniel Horowitz

It’s the sort of gun violence that happens every day, but is conveniently ignored by those who hate guns, except in the hands of repeat violent offenders. A seven-year-old girl was out trick-or-treating with her father in Chicago dressed up as a bumblebee. Suddenly, they were caught in the crossfire of a Latin Kings gang war, and the child was shot in the neck and chest.

While the identity of the suspected gunman has not yet been revealed, the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the target of the gunfire was a 32-year-old Latin King man “with a record of drug and assault arrests.” The man, who refused to cooperate with police even though he was the intended victim, was walking among the children who were trick-or-treating.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Black Robe Pastor and State House Candidate Cory Musgrave

Written by Benjamin Smith

Pastor Cory Musgrave joined Monte Larrick on this edition of Illinois Family Spotlight to discuss his invocation on the Illinois House floor earlier this year.

State Rep. Darren Bailey invited Pastor Musgrave to open the Illinois House in prayer, and Pastor Musgrave took the opportunity to ask God to forgive us for the recent passage of a radical abortion expansion bill that will result in even more innocent bloodshed.

He also answers questions about why he is running for Illinois State Representative in the 109th district (current State Rep.… Continue Reading

Ives on “At Issue”

Written by John Biver

A few weeks ago, 6th district congressional candidate Jeanne Ives was interviewed by Craig Dellimore on the WBBM AM 780 radio show “At Issue.” Listening to the interview should give encouragement to anyone who despairs for the future of Illinois. Why? Because in spite of our state’s problems, exceptionally talented conservatives such as Jeanne Ives are still entering the fray to champion fiscal sanity and pro-family policies.

Early in the conversation they discussed former Lt.Continue Reading

Rep. David Welter Runs as a Republican BUT Votes & Campaigns with Democrats!

Written by John Biver

In recent years Illinois has been experiencing fiscal and moral decay at an alarming rate. Leftist policies championed by the Democratic Party are the cause. Plain and simple. Voters unhappy with the state’s decline often look to the Republican Party to provide leadership to combat and reverse that decline. The problem is this — too many David Welter-like Republicans have been elected to office.

Republican State Rep. David Welter, who represents the 75th district which is centered in Morris, Illinois, and includes parts of Grundy, Kendall, LaSalle, and Will counties, votes with the Democrats on too many important issues.… Continue Reading

Republican Precinct Committeeman: The Power of the Office

This is the fifth article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.

Written by John Biver

Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum website has a post titled, “The Most Powerful Office In The World Is NOT The President of the United States!

Hyperbole? You read it and decide. No one is arguing that ONE INDIVIDUAL precinct committeeman has more power than the president. But put together hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of precinct committeemen, and every politician from the White House on down will know that they will be held accountable.… Continue Reading

Running for GOP Precinct Committeeman: What You Need to Know

Editor’s Note:  Through this series of articles we hope and pray that conservative Christian voters will consider running for the office of precinct committeemen. In doing so, you will directly and positively influence pro-family issues and political leadership within the Illinois GOP.  We are not aligning with the GOP establishment, which has been woefully inept and cowardly.

Written by John Biver

Precinct Committeemen and The Unavoidable Work of a Political Party

This is the third article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.
 (Read part 1 HERE, and part 2 HERE)

Written by John Biver

Among conservatives there is a great deal of anger with the current Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., and in many state capitals. A lot is being written on this topic by commentators this summer because of the popularity of “outsider” candidates running for the GOP presidential nomination.… Continue Reading

What a Precinct Committeeman Is, And Why Conservatives Need to Run for the Office

This is the second article in a series about running for the political office
of Republican Precinct Committeeman.
 (Read part 1 HERE.)

Written by John Biver

In our first post we quoted from Fay Voshell’s recent article, “The Little Hand,” words that should stir everyone on the political right into action. Voshell’s post is political writing at its best, and in my view — it is political writing as art. Speaking of art, here are a couple of lines spoken to idle troops during a battle in Shakespeare’s Henry V:

It is no time to discourse.
