Wise and Honest Candidates Needed

Written by John Biver

Illinois Democrats have shoved the most extreme legislation down the throats of Illinoisans by passing the nation’s most radical abortion bill, forcing public school indoctrination of our children, imposing higher taxes and fees and putting more drugs on our streets. The pendulum will not swing back on its own. We need to step up if we hope to counter the billionaire Governor and the Illinois Democrats. ~ IFA’s David E. Smith

Right now, there are many thousands of people who have decided not to give up on Illinois.… Continue Reading

GOP ‘Jihad Squad’ Facebook Post Called “Racist” Political Hate Speech

Written by Timothy Dailey

The Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association prompted an outcry from Muslims when it posted a faux movie poster image labeling four Democratic congresswomen as “The Jihad Squad” on its Facebook page.

The post showed the four congresswomen with a tagline that read, “Political jihad is their game. If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology, you’re racist.” U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Ilhaam Omar of Minnesota are shown holding guns.… Continue Reading

Be Part of Illinois’ Conservative Resurgence: Don’t Miss ICU Strategy 2019

Written by Tamara Jackson

Pundits and politicians across the nation write off our state as dark blue, a bastion of leftist thought and policy. Conservative presidential candidates often bypass Illinois, also assuming it’s a lost cause and a Democrat stronghold. Likewise, regressive candidates frequently skip the state assuming it’s automatically in the D column.

But in truth, Illinois has hundreds of thousands of good conservative people. The percentage of conservative voters (thinkers) grows exponentially the further one travels farther away from Chicago and Crook County.… Continue Reading

Support Three New State Reps Who Support Life!

Thanks to a super-majority of left-wing lawmakers, Illinois “boasts” some of the most egregious abortion laws in our nation.

On Tuesday, May 28th, the Illinois House voted 64-50 to pass SB 25 — an abhorrent bill creating a fundamental “right” to abortion throughout all 9 months of pregnancy. Three days later, the Illinois State Senate voted 34-20 to pass it as well. This past Wednesday, Gov.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: They Got Everything They Wanted and More

Written by Benjamin Smith

Collusion, deception, and lies – that’s the tried and true game plan Illinois politicians pulled from their playbook at the end of the recent General Assembly session. And while our elected representatives are still basking in the glow of victory, we, the taxpayers and their employers, are beginning to experience the costly consequences of their end run tactics.

In our Spotlight this week is former State Representative Jeanne Ives and her address to attendees at an event in Rockford hosted by Concerned Citizens for American.… Continue Reading

How Weasel Words Pave the Road to Hell

Written by Robert Knight

We are awash in weasel words. That is, euphemisms meant to distract us from reality.  The most obvious ones are replacing homosexuality with “gay,” taxes with “revenue,” spending with “investments,” sexual confusion with “gender identity,” and abortion with “choice.” Actually, abortion has a whole set of weasel terms.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker drew “whoops and cheers” from onlookers on June 12 as he signed The Reproductive Health Act, which he called “a beacon of hope in the heart of this nation.”  A widely published AP photo shows him grinning broadly and holding up a pen as female abortion activists applaud.… Continue Reading
