Rep. David Welter Runs as a Republican BUT Votes & Campaigns with Democrats!

Written by John Biver

In recent years Illinois has been experiencing fiscal and moral decay at an alarming rate. Leftist policies championed by the Democratic Party are the cause. Plain and simple. Voters unhappy with the state’s decline often look to the Republican Party to provide leadership to combat and reverse that decline. The problem is this — too many David Welter-like Republicans have been elected to office.

Republican State Rep. David Welter, who represents the 75th district which is centered in Morris, Illinois, and includes parts of Grundy, Kendall, LaSalle, and Will counties, votes with the Democrats on too many important issues.… Continue Reading

“Emphasizing LGBTQIA History in Public Schools” (Illinois Family Spotlight #092)

Laurie Higgins joins David Smith and Monte Larrick to discuss the Illinois Senate’s ratification of the ERA, and they also discuss the LGBTQIA history curriculum legislation currently in consideration in the Illinois General Assembly.

Can the ERA be stopped in Illinois now that it has passed the state senate? “Yes,” Laurie Higgins said, because the “ERA actually says nothing about women.” The language of the proposed amendment does signal, however, that it will eradicate abortion restrictions and it will end sex differentiation in private spaces.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: The Consequences of Implementing the ERA

Written by John Biver

Monte Larrick recently caught up with Elise Bouc, the State Chairwoman of Stop ERA Illinois. They discuss the push to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to the United State’s Constitution, only requiring two more states to approve it before it becomes a federal amendment.

Background

Long Train of Abuses: Illinois Conservatives Need to Use Their Power Especially Tomorrow

Written by John Biver

Tomorrow at Republican Party County Conventions across the state, conservatives will be engaging in the battle. I have never been more encouraged about the prospects for the success of those supporting the right policy reforms within the next few years than I am now.

When Bruce Rauner signed HB 40 and made it legal for pro-aborts to use your tax dollars to fund the murder of unborn babies, several Republican leaders in our General Assembly condemned Rauner and supported a challenger against him in the primary.… Continue Reading

Pro-Life Groups Withdraw Support from Republican Senators that Supported the ERA

Written by John Biver

The leaders of six pro-life organizations issued a public statement on Friday criticizing the 8 Republican state senators who joined the Democrats this past week to pass the “Equal Rights” Amendment (ERA).

In the letter, the pro-life leaders mention that left-wing U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has admitted that the “intended scope of the ERA is to greatly increase the scrutiny of pro-life legislation.”

A vote for the ERA is a vote for overturning abortion restrictions and enshrining abortion rights in the U.S.… Continue Reading

The ERA and Mark Kirk, Quisling Extraordinaire

Kirk

Written by Laurie Higgins

Another day, another notch in the “Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned” belt that is squeezing the life out of conservatives: Mark Kirk has hocked another loogie in the spittle-splashed faces of conservatives who held their noses and helped elect him. He, along with U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), has introduced a resolution to remove the ratification deadline for the Equal Rights Amendment, which has long since passed.

This comes on the heels of his shameless pandering to homosexual activists at a marriage-deconstruction rally in front of the U.S.… Continue Reading
