Democrats Trying Again with Abortion-on-Demand and Gaslighting Until November 8

Newly Minted Challenger Catalina Lauf’s Silence on Abortion Deafening

Written by John Lopez

The Washington, D.C. Democrats are at it again.

After their abortion-on-demand legislation from last September failed twice in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives decided to double-down and pass, again, abortion-on-demand under the gaslighting guise of “codifying” Roe v. Wade along with a 2nd bill to ensure access to abortion-on-demand.

The House voting grid from July 15, in spite of a couple of changes to the membership of the House as well as the bill number, is identical to the voting grid from last September:

Like last September, all of the Republicans in the House opposed version 2 of the “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2022” (WHPA), and all of the Democrats, with the exception of Congressman Henry Cuellar (D, TX-28) voted for it.… Continue Reading

Texas Primary Results and Possible Applications to Illinois – Including “RINO Hunting”

Henry Cuellar Forced to Runoff, Ratings Changed for Cuellar District to “Toss-up”

Written by John Lopez

The day after the United States Senate successfully filibustered the pro-abortion-on-demand H.R. 3755, the Texas primary kicked off the 2022 primary season which could have some ramifications to Illinois.

With H.R. 3755’s filibuster as a backdrop and Congressman Henry Cuellar’s lone Democrat vote in the U.S. House last September making him a target of the pro-abortion zealots, Cuellar won the most votes in the March 1 primary.… Continue Reading

Let’s Help This Young Candidate in The 1st Congressional District

Written by John Lopez

The January 3, 2022 announcement by 15-term U.S. Representative Bobby Rush (D-Chicago) he would not seek another term in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2022 created an open seat in the 1st Congressional District (IL-01) for the first time since the resignation of Congressman Harold Washington after his election as Chicago mayor in 1983.

This Congressional District stretches from the Chicago Loop, into the Southside including Hyde Park and the University of Chicago, into the South Suburbs of Cook County and stretches into most of Will County and into Kankakee County, as far south as the village of Bourbonnais.… Continue Reading

Media Hostile to Republicans While Democrats’ ‘Gaffes’ Ignored

Written by Robert Knight

If the lockstep media are good at anything, it’s repeating phrases out of context until they’re a mantra of shame.

This is done only to Republicans, of course. When Democrats commit awful misstatements, the media dismiss them as harmless “gaffes.”

By the way, if you think otherwise, you’re a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier,” as President Joe Biden said to a student. She was crushed, while the media gave Mr. Biden cover, saying he was only “joking.”… Continue Reading

Southern Illinois GOP Chairs, Others Condemn Rep. Kinzinger’s Statements on Trump

Written by Christine Misner

U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger (IL-16th) upset many of his fellow Republicans around the country with the statements he’s made about former President Donald J. Trump in recent weeks. Perhaps none more so than the county chairman of 36 southern Illinois regional Republican Party committees who issued a letter condemning Kinzinger for his actions including calling for the impeachment of President Trump and failing to support the president’s claims of election fraud.

The GOP county chairs voted to issue their condemnation at the Southern Regional Zoom Meeting Jan.… Continue Reading

Ives on “At Issue”

Written by John Biver

A few weeks ago, 6th district congressional candidate Jeanne Ives was interviewed by Craig Dellimore on the WBBM AM 780 radio show “At Issue.” Listening to the interview should give encouragement to anyone who despairs for the future of Illinois. Why? Because in spite of our state’s problems, exceptionally talented conservatives such as Jeanne Ives are still entering the fray to champion fiscal sanity and pro-family policies.

Early in the conversation they discussed former Lt.Continue Reading

James Marter Challenges Adam Kinzinger in the 16th Congressional District Primary

Written by John Biver

Politics has changed within the past two years and that is a very good thing. If you’re a conservative and don’t think much of President Donald Trump, you cannot deny he’s someone who wishes to get things done. Not a common trait among conservative politicians, at least not since Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich left the field.

Here in Illinois, Governor Bruce Rauner has behaved in such a way that conservatives are finally waking up, speaking up, and stepping up.… Continue Reading

O Kinzinger, Where Art Thou on Mark Kirk?

Written by Laurie Higgins

In a Chicago Sun Times article, U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Rockford) says Donald Trump “needs to begin to act like… someone worthy of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan’s job.”

Kinzinger says he agrees “100 percent” with Paul Ryan’s decision to be outspoken “when Trump says things that violate his conscience, violate our party,” and that speaking out is an honorable thing to do.

Kinzinger threatens that if Trump “wants to say that we can basically throw away [Republicans] that have dedicated a good part of their lives to bringing forward a Republican view, he’ll do that at his own peril.”… Continue Reading

The Weak Link in the GOP Senate Majority?

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Senator Kirk and the GOP need to think hard about what happens next.

Written by John Fund

Illinois U.S. Senator Mark Kirk has won a lot of respect for his gritty recovery from a serious stroke in 2012. But his fellow Republicans worry that his recent political and verbal stumbles make him the most vulnerable GOP incumbent up for reelection in 2016 in a state Barack Obama won with 58 percent of the vote in 2012.… Continue Reading
