Illinois is NOT a Dark Blue State

Written by John Biver

On this edition of the IFA Spotlight podcast, Monte Larrick, John Biver and Dave Smith continue their discussion about the primary election last month, including the great conservative candidates down ballot, educating misinformed voters, and a summary of the results from down ballot races.

Reviewing the vote totals from the primary, the fact of the uptick in Democratic Party ballots cast versus the down tick in Republican ballots cast, Monte stated — “If you’re a Republican it sounds like we’re in big trouble in November.”

Dave responded that Republicans are in trouble at the top of the ticket since two Democrat billionaires are running against each other (Dave referred to Rauner as a Democrat on the basis of his support of the radical left’s social agenda).… Continue Reading

2018 Primary Election Picks

There are several contested primary races for the Illinois General Assembly due in part to the number of retiring members of the General Assembly. Turnover in such a legislative body is welcomed, but not if the new candidates turn out to be influenced by Leftist ideology which puts them on the wrong side of legislation that impacts the family.

We strongly encourage you to vote in the March 20th primary election. Prior to going to the polls, make sure that you know where your candidates stand on life, marriage (defined by God), and religious freedom.… Continue Reading

Written by Tom DeWeese

There are many powerful forces operating today across the nation to divide the American people and silence opposing views. One of the most active of these efforts is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

There are two very serious reasons why the SPLC is in many ways more dangerous than other organizations that are fueling the flames of the far left radicals who use violence and lies to stop honest political debate.… Continue Reading

DNC Chairman Ellison Promotes the Tyrannical Group Antifa

Written by Michael F. Haverluck

Even though Antifa’s name is a derivative of “anti-fascists,” its track records shows it is not true to its name, as its members’ violent activity witnessed at Trump’s inauguration and rallies – not to mention their regular attempts to silence free speech on numerous college campuses from coast to coast – is currently under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for domestic terrorism.

As a professed Muslim with a history of supporting Islamic terrorist groups, Ellison appears not be worried about his latest proud display of support for Antifa, of which the FBI has issued warnings about its anticipated violent demonstrations in the near future.… Continue Reading
