Hillary’s Hateful Harangue

Written by David Limbaugh

Hillary Clinton’s abhorrent remarks in Mumbai, India, warrant our attention because, like it or not, they represent the thinking of a large swath of the modern Democratic Party.

But my aim is not to highlight Clinton’s never-ending catalog of excuses for losing the presidential election, except to note that rather than blame everyone and everything but herself, she should apologize for stealing the nomination. If she hadn’t done that, she wouldn’t have to blame anyone.… Continue Reading

Democratic Trumpsteria Continues

Written by David Limbaugh

If liberals would quit acting so crazy, maybe they would have a chance of making significant gains in Congress in the upcoming midterm elections and achieve their goal of eroding support for President Donald Trump. But it’s not gonna happen.

Liberals’ extremism and outrageousness and conservatives’ failure to stop them created the conditions leading to Trump’s election. Now the left’s unrepentant persistence is sustaining and even increasing Trump’s support. Please let liberals’ learning disability continue.… Continue Reading

Republicans Were Warned About Rauner. But in 2014, They Just Wanted to Win.

Written by John Biver

In 2014, Business Insider wrote about the fact that Bruce Rauner had an extramarital affair with his current wife Diana Rauner (who was “set to be married” to another man at the time) while his wife was pregnant with their third child. It was a messy situation to say the least. Here is Elizabeth Rauner’s attorney James Feldman in one excerpt from the article:

Our client, Beth, has three small children.

Paul Simon Institute Polls Satisfy Everyone but Illinois Citizens

Written by Pat Hickey

The Chicago Tribune writes that “The (Paul Simon Institute) survey found Bruce Rauner, the first-term governor, leading his Republican challenger, three-term state Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton, 51 percent to 31 percent, with 18 percent undecided or favoring someone else.”

Before Ives’ supporters allow defeatism to creep in, here’s a word on polling from the American Association of Public Opinion Research: “[E]ven the best public opinion poll is only a snapshot of public opinion at the particular moment in time, not an eternal truth.”

The Paul Simon Institute (PSI) has trotted out percentages and pie-charts that proved Illinois could not wait for civil unions, or to redefine marriage, and really needs to score some legal weed, ASAP.… Continue Reading

Trump is Obligated to Follow Immigration Law

Written by Daniel Horowitz

If one district judge demands that a president take a given course of action and another district judge prohibits the president from making such a move, what’s a president to do? He should ignore the judiciary, of course, and only take executive action pursuant to the law and the U.S. Constitution as he sees it.

When leftist organizations forum-shop their political issues to liberal judicial districts, seeking a phantom nationwide veto on a law or executive policy, they are not always guaranteed they will get a likeminded judge drawn by random selection.… Continue Reading

I Wish I Were as Bad a Christian as Mike Pence

Written by David Limbaugh

I’ve repeatedly said that though President Trump gives his leftist enemies plenty of fodder in his tweets to attack him, they would malign any Republican president unless he totally capitulated to their demands — and switched parties. Indeed, they always have.

The liberals say Trump is such an awful person, which apparently excuses their monomaniacal obsession with destroying his presidency. Yet Vice President Mike Pence is one of the finest people around, and they can’t stand him, either.… Continue Reading

The Crowded (and Contentious) Democratic Party Race for Attorney General

Written by John Biver

There are more Democratic Party candidates for attorney general (8) than there are for governor (6). Speaker Michael Madigan’s daughter, Lisa Madigan, retiring after the end of her fourth term, has held the office since first being elected in 2002.

The candidates are State Rep. Scott Drury, Sharon Fairley, Aaron Goldstein, Renato Mariotti, State Sen. Kwame Raoul, Nancy Rotering, Jesse Ruiz, and former governor Pat Quinn.… Continue Reading

Ignore the Critics: The Jeanne Ives TV Ad is a Blueprint for Republicans Nationally

Written by John Biver

The new Jeanne Ives for Governor campaign ad is generating controversy, to say the least. Leftists, of course, are calling it, as they call everything and everyone they disagree with, “racist and bigoted.” The candidates whose campaigns are being funded by Bruce Rauner cash are also upset — even those that were previously thought to have been conservative.

The ad is funny, correct, and it clearly communicates the intra-party divide on several important issues — all in 60 seconds.… Continue Reading

Ignore Rauner: The State of the State is Bankrupt

Written by John Biver

As one of those people who rarely watch our governor’s State of the State Address, Bruce Rauner’s speech on Wednesday reminded me why most people don’t bother. Much like his performance before the MUST-WATCH Chicago Tribune editorial board meeting, it was embarrassing. It was weak. It was silly. And it was predictable.

Illinois Republican voters can’t say they weren’t warned about Rauner. During the 2014 election cycle Doug Ibendahl, Laurie Higgins, and I wrote plenty of articles explaining why electing him was a mistake.… Continue Reading

Of Immigration and S—hole Countries

Disclaimer: In the following essay a vulgar term, attributed to president Trump, is used once to frame the discussion.  If a coarse word offends you or you think it inappropriate for a Christian writer to use such words, please close the article now.

By Jonathon Clay de Hale

The news cycles so fast these days that president Trump’s alleged denigration of Haiti and Africa using a repugnant term is already fading from view. But since the topic of immigration is front and center again, it’s worth pausing for a moment to think through the gist of his comment.… Continue Reading
