Ranked-Choice Voting: Is It a Good Choice for Illinois?

Written by Jane Ryan Carrell

A September 2019 article in The Atlantic describing a new way of voting for candidates bears the headings “A step toward blowing up the presidential-voting system” and “Maine’s adoption of ranked-choice voting could upend a close race for the White House.”

What is Ranked-Choice Voting, who is adopting it, and should Illinois adopt it? What are the positives and negatives, and how might it affect the 2020 presidential race?

Under Ranked-Choice Voting, sometimes abbreviated here as RCV, the voter lists candidates in order of preference.… Continue Reading

Old Fashioned and Modern Day Election Fraud

Written by Jane Ryan Carrell

Let’s look at some of the early forms of election fraud.  A historian might tell us of elections two centuries ago, but we won’t go back that far. Instead, let’s consider forms of fraud practiced in Chicago in the Richard J. Daley era: the fifties, sixties and early seventies. Daley died of a heart attack Dec. 20, 1976 at the age of 74, after being elected in 1975 for his sixth 4-year term, holding office until his death.… Continue Reading

Democratic Presidential Disarray

Written by David Limbaugh

I’m almost as upset that Democratic presidential candidates are squabbling as I am that Prince Harry and the former Meghan Markle apparently don’t want to live in Los Angeles until President Donald Trump leaves office. Double bummer.

Speaking of doubles, did you know that U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have accused each other of lying? How can this be? Progressives don’t lie. With that in mind, one of them must be lying.… Continue Reading

The Democrats’ Impeachment of Trump Will Live in Infamy

Written by Jonathan Clay de Hale

A date that will live in infamy.” ~President Franklin D. Roosevelt,
addressing the nation on December 8, 1941, the day after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor

Those words apply equally to the partisan vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 18, 2019 to impeach President Donald J. Trump. Not everyone will see the deed as infamous, but at least half of American voters will. Historians 50 years from now will agree that the attempt to impeach this president was politically motivated, did great damage to our system of government, and was an unprecedented abuse of power.… Continue Reading

Christianity Today’s Call for Trump’s Removal

Written by Laurie Higgins

Mark Galli, editor-in-chief of the former evangelical flagship magazine Christianity Today (CT) wrote a stunning editorial calling for President Trump’s removal from office via either impeachment or the next election. While acknowledging that “Democrats have had it out for him from day one, and therefore nearly everything they do is under a cloud of partisan suspicion,” Galli remarkably asserts that the case for Trump’s removal by hook or crook is indisputable:

But the facts in this instance are unambiguous: The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents.

Devin Nunes: Mocked for Being Right

Written by L. Brent Bozell III

A few weeks ago, U.S. Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) appeared on Mark Levin’s Fox News show, “Life, Liberty & Levin.” Near the end, he talked about how he and his staff put out a memo in early 2018 “to expose the counterintelligence malfeasance that was occurring in the FBI” in the search for Russian “collusion” with Donald Trump. The media did all kinds of stories about how the Republicans were concocting “conspiracy theories” and destroying the nation’s law enforcement agencies.… Continue Reading

Much Ado Over Not Very Much

Written by William Murchison

A history professor I once studied under tended to offer weary responses to technical and highly dispensable questions of the sort that arise in weary seminars. To wit: “But what’s that got to do with the price of eggs?” Or, more pointedly sometimes, “the price of eggs in Arkansas?”

I thought of this aptly characterized boredom threshold as I watched the impeachment — um — hearings on Monday. Hearings? Snorings seems more to the point: a canopy of mingled objections and arguments and the preening of elected officials who know well enough they are on television.… Continue Reading

Operating Above the Law

Written by Robert Knight

“No one is above the law,” U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said when announcing the start of the impeachment process against President Donald J. Trump.

She should have tempered it with: “unless you’re a Democrat.”

For starters, literally hundreds of Democrat-controlled jurisdictions operate as “sanctuary cities,” flouting the law by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials.  Nothing ever happens to the Democrat politicians, just the crime victims at the hands of criminal aliens who are released instead of being turned over to immigration enforcement officers.… Continue Reading

Trump Moves to Protect Taxpayers From Immigrant Medical Bills. How About Border?

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Here’s a novel question: We are all struggling with a cumbersome and expensive health care industry, trying to find ways to fix a broken system for Americans. Why on earth would we invite the rest of the world to access our system for free?

That was essentially the question pro-sovereignty figures in the Trump administration asked before they pushed for the new rule announced Friday to bar admission of those immigrants who show up at our hospitals without insurance or any way to pay out of pocket.… Continue Reading

If Only We Could Impeach the Left-Wing Media

Written by Trevor Thomas

In order to remove the U.S. president, the vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office, Article I, Section II of the U.S. Constitution gives the U.S. House of Representatives “the sole Power of Impeachment.”  Article I, Section III gives the U.S. Senate “the sole Power to try all Impeachments.”  In the history of the United States, the U.S. House has initiated impeachment proceedings dozens of times; however, only 19 individuals have faced actual Articles of Impeachment.… Continue Reading
