For those too busy to run for their local school boards, too cowardly to attend school board meetings when controversies arise, or too lazy to vote, maybe a Facebook posting by District U-46 community member Phil Benshoof will be a wake-up call in that his views are shared by many cultural regressives [all errors appear in the original]:
you know I am greatly concerned with our school board. I have kept close tabs by watching and/or attending every board meeting the past couple years.

A week ago, President Trump unleashed a media firestorm when he accused former President Barack Obama in a tweet of wiretapping Trump Tower in New York.
The standard portrayal: Once again, the president has shot from the hip, right into his foot, “without any evidence” whatever.
These are the same media that excitedly accused the Russians of “hacking the election,” based on a report from the CIA, FBI and NSA in early January while Mr.… Continue Reading

Well, now we know why the GOP establishment kept their ObamaCare replacement package locked in a room where not even GOP senators could read it. Everyone naturally wondered what they were hiding, and now we know. They were hiding it because it is a horrible, no good, very bad piece of legislation.
If it repeals ObamaCare in any meaningful sense (and it doesn’t), it only replaces it with something as bad if not worse.… Continue Reading

Illinoisans are struggling to pay the highest property taxes in the nation, and that’s largely due to unfair overspending in local governments.
But you wouldn’t know it by asking your local elected officials. Especially not now.
“Free money” that local governments get from the state could be on the chopping block, and that means bureaucrats within Illinois’ nearly 7,000 taxing bodies would finally be held accountable for their spending choices.
Take Quincy, where Mayor Kyle Moore said that a property tax freeze and cuts to giveaways of state income tax dollars would necessitate cutting city services.… Continue Reading

Generally, the first 50 days of the Trump Administration have been an absolute joy to watch. The media and the Left have been apoplectic as President Donald J. Trump largely honors his campaign promises and does exactly what he said he would do. Truthfully, Trump has been everything we hoped he would be and more.
Still, that’s not to say there haven’t been some disappointments. Here are four things I like and two things I dislike from the first 50 days:

Dear Pro-Family Neighbor,
Should a male student be able to use a female’s restroom or locker room when he suffers from a recognized psychological condition called “gender dysphoria”?
Just ten years ago that question would have received near universal ridicule.
Not today. For well over a year, Illinois school districts have been debating the matter. How is it that otherwise intelligent adults debate the absurd?
Most Americans still retain common sense. The problem is that those holding the science-denying view that gender-dysphoric boys should be able to use the girls’ locker rooms in high schools are better-funded and thus able to dominate the cultural conversation.… Continue Reading

With Democratic National Committee Chair (DNC) Tom Perez now leading the Democratic Party in a new Trump era after suffering severe losses in the November election, former DNC Chair Howard Dean stressed that his party must purge itself of pro-life advocates in order to stage a comeback.
When Dean spoke with Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the co-host brought up a previous interview he had with former Gov. Steve Beshear (D-Ky.), who reflected on how the southern Democrats of yesteryear used to dominate the South and border states – a group of liberals who were not abortion extremists and did not lean too far Left on gun control and other social issues.… Continue Reading

On “Fox & Friends,” President Donald Trump declared, in regard to the protests against him, “I think that President Obama’s behind it because his people are certainly behind it.” Once again, Trump has struck gold. It’s “gold” in the form of taxpayer money. In addition to funding from billionaire hedge fund operator George Soros, we find a federal financial connection to some of the anti-Trump protests.
The good news for Trump in this case is that his administration, supported by Republicans in Congress, can cut off the federal money.… Continue Reading

This is a follow-up to our previous post on the disruption of town halls across the nation due to left-wing protesters, who aren’t from the area where the town halls are being held, and where the liberal media praised the protesters for standing up to the Republicans and President Donald Trump. The protesters praise themselves on a MoveOn.org website and at the Town Hall Project.
So far, fourteen Republicans have seen their town halls disrupted by left-wing protesters.… Continue Reading
