PODCAST: The Disastrous Co-Belligerence of Never-Trumpers and Leftists

Never-Trumpers in a de facto alliance with leftist Trump-loathers of various stripes have apparently succeeded in their effort to elect a cognitively impaired man who claims to be Catholic while heartily endorsing a legal right to slaughter the unborn while making the public pay for their deaths. Never-Trumpers can now give themselves a hearty pat-on-the-back for an evil job well done.… Continue Reading

“The Threat a Biden-Harris Administration Poses to Christianity” (Illinois Family Spotlight #227)

This week’s Spotlight features Monte Larrick’s conversation with Peter LaBarbera, Executive Director of Americans for Truth. Monte and Peter discuss the Biden-Harris administration’s top priorities: advancing gay and transgender rights and passing the Equality Act, or in Peter’s words, the Criminalizing Christianity Act. They examine ways in which the “legal sledgehammer” of this act could affect churches’ and faith-based schools’ hiring practices, as well as possible changes we might experience on a state level.… Continue Reading

“How the Fight for Life is Impacted by The Election” (Illinois Family Spotlight #226)

After the break, Eric details the Pro-Life Action League’s efforts amidst the pandemic.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: Newsom, and Lightfoot, and Brown, Oh My

By now many Americans have learned what slimy, deceitful hypocrites California governor Gavin Newsom and his wealthy, well-connected friends are. In a stunning act of arrogant “do what I say, not what I do, PEONS,” he and his privileged co-scofflaws dined at an exclusive restaurant in Napa Valley—indoors without masks. His co-scofflaws included Dustin Corcoran, the CEO of the California Medical Association, and Janus Norman, the group’s lobbyist and senior vice president.… Continue Reading

“How To Swing an Election, Illinois Style” (Illinois Family Spotlight #225)

Two hundred and two years after achieving statehood, Illinois – the Land of Lincoln – is more commonly associated with political and electoral corruption than with Honest Abe. Voter fraud is a sad reality that few people are willing to stand against, but, thankfully for Illinois, Carol Davis, chairman of Illinois Conservative Union, is fighting for a fair and honest election process.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: Collusion of the Press and Democrats to Interfere with Election Erodes Liberty

Written by Laurie Higgins

The mainstream press successfully colluded with the Democrat Party to interfere with the election by burying the Joe Biden/Communist China corruption story. New polling shows that prior to the election, 36% of Biden voters had not heard that “evidence exists in emails, texts, eyewitness testimony and banking transactions that the FBI has been investigating since last year directly linking Joe Biden to a corrupt financial arrangement between a Chinese company with connections to the Chinese communist party and Hunter Biden’s business … may have personally benefitted Joe Biden financially.”… Continue Reading

“Election Fraud and Christian Patience” (Illinois Family Spotlight #224)

Written by David E. Smith

A week has passed since the general election and still, questions loom – among them, who and why? Election fraud has left the outcome of the presidential race (as well as other national and state contests) up in the air, and serious doubts remain as to the integrity of the voting and tabulating process. Many Christians are also wondering why God has allowed such confusion to happen and where is He in the midst of this political mess.… Continue Reading

PODCAST: Biden Claims the Mantle of Unifier-in-Chief … lol

Written by Laurie Higgins

As of this writing, the Democrats have claimed victory for Kamala Harris and her confused running mate Joe Biden. Following numerous reports from key battleground states about Hammers, Scorecards, and the appearance of strange polling place goings on, legal challenges and recount demands have just begun. But Never-Trumpers, lily-livered GOP goobers, Democrats, and their bootlicking lapdogs in the media heap ridicule on anyone who dares to suggest that maybe—just maybe—there  could be a corrupt political operative or two in America who could have used hacking tricks of the trade and strong arm tactics at polling places to skew election results.… Continue Reading

“Watch and Pray: Previewing the 2020 Election” (Illinois Family Spotlight #223)

PODCAST: What Would a Democrat-Controlled Presidency and Congress Mean for America

Written by Laurie Higgins

Republicans who care about liberty, equality, justice, safety, and economic security must vote for President Donald J. Trump and Republican U.S. Senators. A Democrat-controlled presidency and U.S. Senate would mean further empowering the arrogant, ignorant, tyrannical cancel culture that has taken root in every major cultural institution in America. Academia, the mainstream press, Big Tech, corporate America, Hollywood, and professional medical and mental health organizations collude to censor the dissemination of ideas leftists don’t like and oppress those who disseminate them.… Continue Reading
