Amid Illinois Shutdown, Abortions at Planned Parenthood Go On

Written by Alex Newman

Amid the shutdown of all “non-essential” businesses and activities as doctors scramble to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, the slaughter of unborn children at six Planned Parenthood clinics and other abortion mills in Illinois will go on. Apparently killing pre-born babies is considered an “essential” service in the Prairie State.

According to a press release published in the far-left Chicago Sun-Times and other local media, at least six Planned Parenthood centers will remain open across the state despite asking victims (euphemistically dubbed “patients”) to re-schedule all “non-essential appointments.”… Continue Reading

Wise and Honest Candidates Needed

Written by John Biver

Illinois Democrats have shoved the most extreme legislation down the throats of Illinoisans by passing the nation’s most radical abortion bill, forcing public school indoctrination of our children, imposing higher taxes and fees and putting more drugs on our streets. The pendulum will not swing back on its own. We need to step up if we hope to counter the billionaire Governor and the Illinois Democrats. ~ IFA’s David E. Smith

Right now, there are many thousands of people who have decided not to give up on Illinois.… Continue Reading

GOP ‘Jihad Squad’ Facebook Post Called “Racist” Political Hate Speech

Written by Timothy Dailey

The Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association prompted an outcry from Muslims when it posted a faux movie poster image labeling four Democratic congresswomen as “The Jihad Squad” on its Facebook page.

The post showed the four congresswomen with a tagline that read, “Political jihad is their game. If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology, you’re racist.” U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Ilhaam Omar of Minnesota are shown holding guns.… Continue Reading

How Weasel Words Pave the Road to Hell

Written by Robert Knight

We are awash in weasel words. That is, euphemisms meant to distract us from reality.  The most obvious ones are replacing homosexuality with “gay,” taxes with “revenue,” spending with “investments,” sexual confusion with “gender identity,” and abortion with “choice.” Actually, abortion has a whole set of weasel terms.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker drew “whoops and cheers” from onlookers on June 12 as he signed The Reproductive Health Act, which he called “a beacon of hope in the heart of this nation.”  … Continue Reading

Do Democrat Politicians Prefer Dead Babies?

Written by Abigail Ruth

There has been a significant amount of howling among Democrats and even some Republicans since IFA posted an article written by Teri Paulson last week that had to be retitled, “Why is Legalized Abortion Called a Holocaust?” Briefly,  Illinois Family was accused of “hate speech,” “inappropriate behavior,” “trivializing the memory of Holocaust victims,” and “promoting violence,” to name a few.

No one who complained actually addressed the core issue of whether or not there really is a moral difference between killing people based on their ethnicity (e.g.,… Continue Reading

The “Trans”-Identifying Pritzker Issues Ultimatum to GOP

Written by Laurie Higgins

JenniferPritzker is playing macho hardball with the GOP, issuing an ultimatum: Change the GOP positions on all matters related to deviant sexuality or he’ll take his ball of money and stomp home. And by home, I mean the Democratic Party.

As most Illinoisans know, the billionaire cousin of our loo-less billionaire governor J.B. Pritzker is “Jennifer” Pritzker, a husky 69-year-old man who, after retiring from his 27-year Army career now pretends to be a woman—a Republican woman.… Continue Reading

The Illinois Gubernatorial Dilemma

Written by David E. Smith

A good number of folks–especially on social media–are asking why I continue to refuse to vote for the incumbent Republican governor even in the wake of the Sam McCann betrayal. It’s pretty straight forward. I believe that Bruce Rauner is more dangerous to the conservative cause than J.B. Pritzker could ever be.

Bruce Rauner, the leader of the Illinois Republican Party, has severely damaged the conservative cause and has battered the GOP brand in inconceivable ways over the past four years.… Continue Reading

Gubernatorial Election: What to Do, What to Do…

Written by Laurie Higgins

Maybe Illinois conservatives, beaten down by Illinois politics and bad governance, badgered by fellow Republicans, and panicking because they focus too much on the short-term nightmarish picture they see before their eyes, will at the last moment fold and vote for Bruce Rauner. That would be a huge mistake.

The long-term health of the party, the state, and the nation depends not solely or even centrally on tax rates for businesses but on issues related to respect for human life, marriage, and sexuality.… Continue Reading

SPOTLIGHT: “A Man who Shot Both His Feet Off”

Written by John Biver

The Chicago Tribune’s John Kass recently interviewed conservative Republican candidate for Illinois governor Jeanne Ives. Their conversation helps listeners get to know the West Point graduate Ives as well as where she stands on the issues that face Illinois taxpayers.

Bruce Rauner is a failed governor that needs to be defeated, Jeanne Ives told John Kass. They discussed the press conference Ives did with Brian McCann, the brother of Dennis McCann who was killed by a drunk driver who also happened to be an illegal alien (John Kass wrote about the incident here).… Continue Reading

Jeanne Ives’ Campaign Ad

Written by Laurie Higgins

Some words about the histrionics and ignorance of “LGBTQAP” activist organization Equality Illinois, former Illinois Republican Party chairman Pat Brady, ACLU of Illinois’ executive director, excessively temperamental gubernatorial candidate Chris Kennedy, and gubernatorial hopefuls J.B. Pritzker and Daniel Biss.

In paroxysms of faux-outrage, they said a bunch of stupid stuff in a Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Ives ad targets transgender community, immigrants and women who get abortions” about Jeanne Ives‘ new video campaign ad.… Continue Reading
