Mark Kirk-Wannabe Robert Dold First Republican to Support Dangerous Anti-Liberty Equality Act

Bob-Dold

Written by Laurie Higgins

In an unsavory desperation move, Mark Kirk-wannabe Robert Dold, who ill-serves the 10th Congressional District in Illinois, has the dubious honor of being the first and so far only Republican to support the anti-liberty, pro-sexual deviance bill dishonestly titled the “Equality” Act.

The pro-homosexual, pro-“transgender” Equality Act poses the gravest threat to religious liberty and speech rights yet concocted by Leftists. If passed it will confer special privileges on people based on their non-objective, deviant erotic feelings and their confused desires to be the opposite sex. This dangerous bill would add the Leftist terms “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and would expand protections beyond those areas to which the Civil Rights Act now applies.

The pro-“LGBTQQIAP” magazine the Advocate openly admits and celebrates the stunning ramifications of this bill:

The Equality Act would include protections in public accommodations, public education, employment, housing, federal funding, jury service, legal protections, and credit.

The Mostly-Idle Conservative Political Army Stays Idle

flags flying

Written by John Biver

The news on the ground here in Illinois is that in 2016 we’re going to see more of the same. The state party, big Republican Party donors, and the failed political consultant class plans to execute the same losing strategy as they have in past elections. The only change this time will be that more money will be spent than in previous years on all of the tried and true ineffective methods.

If only politics was like sports or business. Coaches of losing sports teams get fired, yet in politics, the most clueless political consultants are among the most highly paid. Lousy professional athletes don’t enjoy long careers, yet most GOP politicians do. If a small business doesn’t make enough profit to cover expenses it eventually shuts down, while your average conservative political activist keeps going and going like the Energizer Bunny with little to show for their efforts.… Continue Reading

Liberal Nihilism in a Nutshell

Nihilism

Written by Victor Davis Hanson

Barack Obama entered office in 2009 with overwhelming popular goodwill and solid majorities in both houses of Congress. He chose not to translate that political heft into passing “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e., open borders and amnesties) or more gun control.

He opposed gay marriage. He warned that he could not use presidential fiats to grant amnesty, close down Guantanamo, or remake the EPA in his own image. He borrowed as never before, in vain hopes of kick-starting a natural recovery that he would soon abort through his own anti-business jawboning, more regulations, growth in government, and tax increases.

So far Obama’s legacy is a sudden crash in energy prices and an unforeseen huge expansion in U.S. oil and gas production that came despite — not because of — his efforts.… Continue Reading

Sifting Wheat

Sifting Wheat

“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
~Luke 22:21-32

Things haven’t changed that much in the past 2000 years.  Jesus warned Simon Peter, and prayed for Simon Peter.  He could be saying it to me … or you.

It is very clear to me, we are being thrown into the air like grains of wheat.  As our culture’s reliance on Christianity and the Bible continues to weaken we can expect the intensity of the sifting to increase.  The cloud of lies, the chaff, will thicken.  But the grains of truth are there, settling out as the lies are blown away.

I need you to help IFA as we work to educate, warn, exhort and even chastise the body of Christ here in the great state of Illinois.  … Continue Reading

GOP Has Made Gains in Party Preference Since the Summer

151202PartyID_1

Written by Jeffrey Jones

Americans’ party preferences are closely divided, with 43% identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic and 41% identifying as Republicans or leaning Republican. The parties have been essentially tied since August, representing a shift from months prior when Democrats had the party affiliation advantage.

The results are based on Gallup Daily tracking interviews with approximately 15,000 Americans each month. Gallup asks Americans to say whether they identify politically as a Republican, an independent or a Democrat. More say they are independents (38%) than say they are either Democrats (30%) or Republicans (27%). All independents are then asked if they lean more toward the Republican or Democratic Party. Party “leaners” overwhelmingly vote for their preferred party, so the combined measure of party identifiers plus leaners gives a better sense of the relative strength of each party, especially because most election contests come down to a choice of a Republican or a Democratic candidate.… Continue Reading

Politicizing Liberty

athens-parthenon

Written by Jonathan Keiler

When President Barack Obama emphatically declared, in the wake of the recent Oregon shooting, that he intended to politicize his campaign to implement “common sense gun control” (which in his mind means Australian-like confiscation) my mind turned to a man most unlike Obama, the Greek philosopher Socrates. Socrates died because his fellow citizens politicized everything, and did not recognize individual liberties. So when Obama calls on Americans to politicize “gun control” he is deliberately and mischievously using the language of democracy to promote tyranny, just as Athenian “democrats” tyrannized their nation two millennia ago.

In 399 B.C. the citizens of Athens convicted Socrates of corrupting the city-state’s youth and for impiety. For this he was sentenced to death, compelled to drink a potion of hemlock until he expired. … Continue Reading

Democratic Debate 2016: Half the Country is Crazy

Democratic-Debate-Sanders-Clinton

Written by John Zmirak

Watching the Democrats debate Tuesday night, my first reaction was the obvious one: Dear God, half of my fellow citizens broadly agree with these maniacs — and some of them are operating airplanes I might have to fly on. I really don’t want my life in the hands of people who think that money comes out of thin air, that vast federal programs are the answer to every American’s day-to-day dilemmas, that making tuition free will improve our educational standards … the list of rotted ideas and failed policies goes on and on. It’s enough to make you afraid to leave the house.

That said, in around a year our citizens will swarm and try to sting the Leviathan we’re riding either to the left or to the right, and one of the Republicans will face one of the Democrats.… Continue Reading

Telling Moments From The First Democratic Debate

Democratic-Presidential-2015-Debate

Written by Gary L. Bauer

Beyond Bernie Sanders‘ defense of socialism, two telling moments really stood out to me. Anderson Cooper asked the candidates, “Which enemy are you most proud of?” Lincoln Chafee said coal companies. Martin O’Malley said the NRA. Bernie Sanders said Wall Street.

Hillary Clinton said Iranians and, of course, Republicans. But when did she make Iran an enemy? As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton started the secret talks that led to the nuclear deal, which she supports.

Then there was Jim Webb‘s response. Referring to his combat experience in Vietnam, Webb said, “I’d have to say the enemy soldier that threw the grenade that wounded me, but he’s not around right now to talk to.” Webb’s answer was met with total silence.

If someone said that in any bar or neighborhood picnic, the instinctive reaction of most Americans would be appreciation for their service.… Continue Reading
