Fallacy of Proponents of Amendment 1 Exposed with Illinois History of the Past 75 Years

Written by John Lopez

This article addresses a ballot measure that Illinois voters must vote on this election cycle.
We urge voters to reject Amendment 1, a constitutional amendment that
would elevate collective bargaining rights in the Illinois Constitution,
allowing government union contracts to override state law.

The organized labor movement helped to build the United States of America to be the greatest country in the world.

Once workers were protected with laws many take for granted today, like the 40-hour work week, overtime pay and the ability for front line workers to organize, the American middle class was established and thrived through most of the 20th Century.… Continue Reading

Illinois Elections

Written by Pastor Calvin Lindstrom

On June 28, 2022, Illinois will hold primary elections. One hundred and thirty-three days later is the general election on November 8, 2022. Through Illinois Family Action, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many excellent candidates who are running for state and federal offices. Lord willing some of these excellent candidates will win and take office.

The two most significant elections are the race for Governor and U.S. Senate. Do conservative, God-fearing candidates have any chance of defeating two abortion-loving candidates – JB Pritzker and Tammy Duckworth?… Continue Reading

Did You Receive Irvin’s Attack Mailer on Bailey?

Written by Fran Eaton 

Every political campaign’s dream is to get potential voters to glance at piece of mail they find in their mailboxes, then their hearts pound quicker if those voters stop and read the mailing cover. Then they hope the voter will open the piece and read what they want those voters to know – either good stuff about their candidate or bad stuff about their opponent.

And that’s all besides the great money the printer gets for doing the mailer, the piece designer gets for putting it together and the political consultants commonly get for, well, being campaign consultants.… Continue Reading

Are We Insane or Standing Fast?

Written by Pastor Calvin Lindstrom

Supposedly, Albert Einstein gave this definition for insanity – doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Whether Einstein actually said this or someone else conceived it, it is a profound definition.

Does this definition apply to all situations? What is the context that needs to be considered? Are we as Christian conservatives in Illinois guilty of insanity?

I am going to answer this question in two ways: first in the negative and then in the positive.… Continue Reading

RINOs and Never-Trumpers Help Leftists Destroy America

Written by Laurie Higgins

In the past year, we saw anarchists savagely beat innocent people in the street; take control of city blocks; incinerate police precincts; burn Bibles; attack churches; loot businesses; tear down federal monuments; deface public property; and parade naked in front of, hurl obscenities at, and even assault police officers.

We saw Democratic mayors and governors command law enforcement to stand down while the lawless destroyed communities and livelihoods.

We saw Democratic governors ban socially distanced corporate worship of God while permitting shoulder-to-shoulder street protests and riots—riots that were praised by Democrats in our neighborhoods, halls of Congress, and press as “mostly peaceful protests.”… Continue Reading

Pritzker, Planned Parenthood, and the Pandemic

Written by Laurie Higgins

Calculated Carnage—known euphemistically as Planned Parenthood (PP)—won’t let a little thing like a pandemic keep it from its bloody and profitable business.  Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL) has opened a new facility in Waukegan, Illinois, a Lake County city where one quarter of the families and one quarter of the population are under the poverty line.

Calculated Carnage calculates that targeting the babies of the poor is a more profitable business model than targeting the babies of the affluent (You’ll never find PP trying to sneak an abattoir into Glencoe, Lake Forest, or Winnetka).… Continue Reading

Sixth District Voters: Vote for Jeanne Ives in the Primary!

Written by Laurie Higgins

Over in the Sixth District there is a crucial congressional race taking place that could turn a U.S. House seat back to red. This seat is currently held by the creepy Sean Casten who when asked by the Daily Herald to name someone he admires named one of the worst public figures in America: the uber-creepy, obscene, homosexual, anti-Christian bigot Dan Savage. I kid you not, that’s the person Casten chose.… Continue Reading

Canada, Big Brother, and a U.S. Congressional Race

Written by Laurie Higgins

Bear with me while I weave together some disparate threads into a whole cloth.

First up is a frightening story from Canada—the “progressive” dreamscape in which Big Brother rules with an iron fist, censoring, indoctrinating, usurping parental rights, and threatening imprisonment of anyone who claims 2 + 2 = 4. This story should serve as a warning to Republicans in the United States.

Robert Hoogland, father of a now 15-year-old daughter, is living in the “progressive” dreamscape otherwise known as a living nightmare.… 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

Chicago: A Hellhole for Parole, Free Bail, and Jailbreak for Violent Gun Felons

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Why aren’t Republicans pounding the lectern with righteous indignation about violent gun felons being let off easy by the judicial system the same way Democrats engage in cerebral gyrations over guns? Democrats have sob stories for their gun control agenda. Republicans need to look no farther than Chicago as the poster child for criminal control.

On June 23, 2017, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson stood beside then-Gov. Bruce Rauner and celebrated the passage of a bill stiffening sentences on gun felons.… Continue Reading
