Even though the primary election isn’t until March 20, 2018, it isn’t too early to begin to considering serving as an Election Judge or a Pollwatcher. Both positions, created by state statute, play an important role in insuring that our elections are conducted according to law.

Illinois Family Institute recently teamed up with Restore Our Constitution to host a special event with Christian historian David Barton in Decatur. During his presentation, he touched on a number of topics including the Left's efforts to abolish the Electoral College and elect a president by a national popular vote. Barton stressed the need to understand the intention of the Founding Fathers when they created the Electoral College.
Usually when a legislator holds the top leadership post in their General Assembly caucus, reelection in their district is all but guaranteed. These are not usual times. The mood of the nation and the mood of Republican and independent voters in Illinois has changed. State House Minority Leader Jim Durkin will be facing a probably-well-funded challenger in next March’s primary.
It all started with “sanctuary cities.” Back in September, thanks to Republican in Name Only, Governor Bruce Rauner, Illinois became a “sanctuary state.” In this, Rauner is on the same page as Chicago’s Leftist mayor: state and local law enforcement are now prevented from making an arrest based solely on immigration status.
The stories are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny.
As conservative Christians continue to push for religious freedom protections in the wake of the 2015 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage, there might be lessons religious freedom advocates can take away from the successes of the pro-life movement.
Growing evidence of the true political nature of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) can be found in the decision of the FBI three years ago to dumped the SPLC as a valid "resource." Their fraudulent "hate group" designation for faith-based organizations that uphold Biblical sexual morality has been identified by some as hate-mongering and a scam.
This past summer, the Illinois Family Institute’s Laurie Higgins penned “District U-46 Board Member’s Dishonest FB Post About Rep. Ives.” In it, she wrote about the far Lefty Traci O’Neal Ellis, who not only lies about State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton), but also called the Republican National Convention the “Klanvention.” Too many people fail to recognize that racism was championed in the Democrat Party. Today, Leftists use race to emotionally manipulate the masses. It is time that we acknowledge these wicked roots and shun the politics of division.

“The militant left here has been outrageous. It’s not conservatives that are going out there burning cars and turning them upside down in universities just because someone is speaking. It’s not the conservatives that are saying ‘pigs in a blanket’ and advocating for the killing of police officers,” said U.S. Representative Trent Franks in a recent radio interview. Meanwhile, liberals call conservatives wing nuts.
Back in July, and by way of a Tweet, President Donald Trump called for the U.S. Senate to change its rules from a 60 vote threshold for cloture to 51. This would enable the lawmakers in this chamber to take up, fully debate and vote on specific bills -- many of which have already passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Under the 60 vote rule, 41 U.S. Senators can block their 59 colleagues from proceeding with the legislative process.
