The Four Pillars of the D.C. Swamp: Part 2

Written by Walker Wildmon

There are four pillars of the Swamp in Washington, D.C. Each of these pillars works against the American people and President Trump’s agenda.

The legislative branch and judicial branch are the first two pillars; they are discussed here in Part 1 of this blog series. Each institution, in its original form, was created for good. Now, these once good institutions have been remade into something that has and continues to hurt our country.… Continue Reading

‘Fake News’ Is Not a Fake Term

Written by David Limbaugh

The left and Trump-opposing right are predictably annoyed at President Trump’s persistent description of the liberal media as “fake news.” Like it or not, the term as he uses it has merit.

Trump’s opponents hysterically claim he threatens the free press when he uses that term to describe them, just as they accuse him of other alleged abuses of constitutional power. In fact, unlike President Obama, Trump has governed within his constitutional authority.… Continue Reading

News from the Illinois Political Front Lines: Part 3 — A Major Reason for the Upsurge in Conservative Energy

Written by John Biver

In the last article, I listed several reasons for Illinois conservatives to be encouraged. As someone who has paid close attention to the downward trajectory of our state for over twenty years, the items I listed are not small things.

I left off at the good news that President Donald Trump is changing national politics. His example can be followed here in Illinois, a state where a lot of forgotten men and women live and work.… Continue Reading

What’s the Deal With Congressional Republicans?

Written by Brian C. Joondeph

Every few months, Republicans behave stupidly, causing their voters to again ask themselves, “Why vote Republican?”  Supporting congressional Republicans seems an exercise in futility – Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown, ready to kick a conservative field goal, only to have Lucy pull the football away at the last second.  I have asked this question several times

We all know the words to the Republican song we have heard every two years for the past decade.  … Continue Reading

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

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

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

Pinocchio Rauner vs. West Point Grad Jeanne Ives: No Contest

Written by Laurie Higgins

Last week, former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Donna Brazile, revealed that in order to access Hillary Clinton’s filthy lucre, the bankrupt DNC agreed to be in cahoots with Clinton to ensure her victory. Surely conservatives are not so naïve as to believe this type of corruption is limited to the DNC and the Clinton cabal.

Here in Illinois, we have seen GOP governors go to prison; boorish Pat Brady, former chair of the ILGOP, stab conservatives in the back by privately urging Republican lawmakers to support same-sex faux-marriage, and “No-Social-Agenda” Rauner bald-face lie to Illinoisans.… Continue Reading

The Mother of All Scandals

Written by David Prentice

There is an answer to Hillary’s question, “What Happened?”

And yes, it should be considered a dumb question rather than a book title.  But the short answer to her question is:  She fooled almost the entire left, for over two decades.  Oh wait, that was a book title, not a question.

And therein lies her biggest problem.  She’s not really asking the question as she should be, she’s not reflecting.  Instead, she’s wagging a finger and blaming everyone else for her loss.… Continue Reading

Media Ignore Real Democratic Scandals

Written by David Limbaugh

Why the collective liberal media yawn on the multi-headed Democratic scandals surfacing everywhere except on their pages and airwaves?

It’s not that the stories are too far-fetched and thin to interest self-respecting journalists, because they are real, damning and supported by sufficiently credible evidence to warrant serious attention and scrutiny.

There are the notorious Trump dossier, the Clinton-infected uranium bribery scandal and the prematurely drafted FBI memo to exonerate the most recently defeated United States presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, who, by the way, is still acting like a heat-seeking missile in search of just one plausible excuse for her loss.… Continue Reading
