100,000 Criminals Released Under Coronavirus Jailbreak Despite Lower Fatality Rate in Prison

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Some localities are now threatening jail time for people who do not wear masks under the unproven science of stopping the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The contorted irony is that this same virus is being used as a pretext to release criminals from jails and prisons to stop an epidemic in confined areas. Well, it turns out there is a lower death rate from COVID-19 in jails than in the general population.… Continue Reading

How the Democrats Collude to Enable Voter Fraud

Written by John Hinderaker

One of the most pernicious phenomena of modern times is the collusive lawsuit. This is how it works: a left-wing organization sues a government agency that is also controlled by the left. The lawsuit alleges that the agency is obliged to do something that the agency would like to do, but the Democrats can’t get it passed.… Continue Reading

Black Lives Matter. Empower Good Cops to Save Them

Written by Daniel Horowitz

The New York Times is breathlessly accusing Minneapolis police of being seven times more likely to shoot black people than white people. What the paper fails to tell you is that black people are 12.1 times more likely to be a victim of a gun homicide in Minneapolis than white people are. So adjusting for that obvious fact, police actually have a higher rate of shooting against white suspects per interaction.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: People Love Darkness Rather Than Light

Written by David E. Smith

Did you think COVID-19 was the worst challenge we would face in 2020? Now a new type of contagion is spreading across our nation and the world and it is potentially as destructive as coronavirus. This Spotlight features my conversations with Dr. Eric Wallace and Stephanie Trussell regarding the aftermath of the horrific and unjust murder of George Floyd.… Continue Reading

Lack of Vote-Integrity Measures Disenfranchises Voters

Written by Laura Hollis

The political impact of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be as unpredictable as the virus itself, and as potentially monumental as the financial losses it has caused. Although the November election is still almost five months away, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading the charge for states to have mandatory mail-in ballots, purportedly in the interests of public safety.… Continue Reading

What’s in Your Governor’s Fireplace?

Written by Paul Hurst

People of faith are sensing something is very wrong with our government right now. In Illinois, the newspapers might as well publish Jeremiah Chapter 36 as their front page cover story. After all, his Biblical account sounds like it’s taken directly from today’s headlines.

Pending disaster, dire warnings, arrogant leaders, cowardly representatives, people of faith banned from their place of worship, untrustworthy people turning each other in and an increasingly godless society, tempting God’s wrath every step of the way.… Continue Reading

Greasing the Skids Toward Socialism?

Written by Jerry Newcombe

One fallout of the COVID-19 crisis is its severe thrashing of our economy. Not only have all the impressive economic gains of the Trump administration evaporated, but we are now adding to our national debt in scary ways. I hope that all the bailouts are temporary means to solve a temporary problem.

To use an analogy: One of the saddest things about a midlife crisis is that permanent damage can be done to “solve” what turns out to be only a temporary problem.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: Pastor Cassell Discusses His Lawsuit Against Gov. Pritzker

Written by David E. Smith

Give me your young, your old, your faithful masses yearning to worship freely. This revision of The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus could well be the rallying cry of Pastor Steve Cassell of The Beloved Church in Lena, Illinois. On this edition of Spotlight, Pastor Steve joins me for a timely discussion regarding the perilous intersection of COVID-19, governmental “authority,” and Constitutionally-guaranteed personal liberties.… Continue Reading

Why Do We Need the Illinois General Assembly if We Have a King?

Written by Abigail Ruth

The news in Illinois these days is grim to say the least. A few days ago Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced a plan to ‘Restore’ Illinois that, if actually followed, will surely destroy whatever is left of both our God-given and constitutionally protected civil rights and our livelihoods. According to the governor, ‘normal’ will not return to Illinois until we have a vaccine or a drug that he deems “highly effective.”… Continue Reading

Trump’s Critics Can’t Have It Both Ways

Written by David Limbaugh

The left’s position on the nation’s proper response to the pandemic, though shrouded in the language of compassion, is incoherent and morally repugnant virtue signaling.

Since this calamity began, many national Democratic leaders, the left-wing media and various never-Trumpers have been more interested in smearing President Donald Trump — no change there — than helping to solve the myriad problems caused by the coronavirus.… Continue Reading
