Help Expose Illinois Democrats’ Radical Agenda

Written by David E. Smith

The voting record and agenda of Illinois Democrats can only be described as far left on the political spectrum. We could justifiably call them extreme. But the deceptive media in Illinois will never identify them honestly because they are collaborators in creating a godless socialist culture.

Below we have posted a number of comparison graphics for candidates running for federal and state legislative seats. We’ve listed them by governor, U.S.… Continue Reading

Yes, I called IL-11 Republican nominee Catalina Lauf a “phony” on national radio and here’s why

by John Lopez

On the September 11, 2022, broadcast of Beyond the Beltway with Bruce DuMont, which is broadcast live across the country Sunday nights from Salem Media Group’s studios in Elk Grove Village, and can be watched on livestream Sunday evenings on YouTube, I phoned in when host DuMont and three Republican guests were talking about Donald Trump’s influence on Republican Party politics.… Continue Reading

What Republicans Must Do To Win In November

Written by Robert Knight

“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new
and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors
which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?” 
~Ronald Reagan

Republicans are still painting in pastels instead of bold colors.

Even the profoundly dangerous and oxymoronically named “Respect for Marriage Act” has failed to draw concerted GOP opposition.… Continue Reading

Informed Voters And Honest Elections Are Left’s Worst Nightmare

Written by Robert Knight

Lots of things today don’t pass the straight face test.

President Joe Biden says the main danger to “democracy” is the “semi-fascist” half of the country that doesn’t vote Democrat. He continues to insist that “white supremacists” pose more of a security threat than China, Russia, Iran and the homegrown goons attacking churches and crisis pregnancy centers.

On Thursday, standing in front of two U.S. Marines, he said, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”… Continue Reading

Written by John Lopez

No matter how often anyone claims Amendment 1 is not about Worker Classification, the paper trail of proponents proves claims as untrue

All Republicans Are Now Terrorists

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Last week, Financial Times Associate Editor Edward Luce tweeted that Republicans are the most “dangerous” political force in the world, bar none. “I’ve covered extremism and violent ideologies around the world,” he said, and “I have never come across a political force more nihilistic, dangerous & contemptible than today’s Republicans. Nothing close.” Former CIA Director Michael Hayden chimed in immediately and said, “I agree.”

This past Tuesday, Democrat adviser Kurt Bardella called all Republicans a “domestic terrorist cell.”… Continue Reading

Know What Gaslighting is And Refuse The Abuse

Written by Peter Heck

As with so many other words, phrases, and conditions, the term “gaslighting” has become little more than a pejorative insult in our over-politicized culture, hurled with both increasing frequency and little regard for its actual meaning.

  • If someone adamantly and forcefully pushes a position that others disagree with, they are slapped with the label “gaslighter.”
  • If someone backed into a corner cites a bogus statistic in an attempt to justify their position, they are called out for “gaslighting.”
