Canada, Big Brother, and a U.S. Congressional Race

Written by Laurie Higgins

Bear with me while I weave together some disparate threads into a whole cloth.

First up is a frightening story from Canada—the “progressive” dreamscape in which Big Brother rules with an iron fist, censoring, indoctrinating, usurping parental rights, and threatening imprisonment of anyone who claims 2 + 2 = 4. This story should serve as a warning to Republicans in the United States.

Robert Hoogland, father of a now 15-year-old daughter, is living in the “progressive” dreamscape otherwise known as a living nightmare.… Continue Reading

Lieutenant Colonel Pritzker Rejects His Sex and Political Affiliation

Written by Laurie Higgins

Lieutenant Colonel James Nicholas Pritzker—now known as “Jennifer Natalya” Pritzker—is trying to commandeer the Republican Party to serve the interests of the “trans” cult he officially joined in 2013.

A year ago Pritzker, a long-time RINO donor to GOP campaigns—often the campaigns of RINOs—who has the dubious distinction of being the world’s “only known trans billionaire,” threatened the GOP that if they didn’t climb aboard the “trans” train, he was piling all his buckets of ducats on it and chugging away.… Continue Reading

The Left’s Slippery Slope

Written by Elad Hakim

Republicans and Democrats agree on little these days.  This is especially true when it comes to certain social issues.  For example, many Republicans believe in the traditional definition of marriage (man and woman).  Democrats, on the other hand, take a much broader approach.  Republicans tend to believe that a person is born as a man or a woman and that science dictates one’s sex.  Democrats have a different view.  One thing is certain: the country is currently on a left-leaning, steep, and slippery slope to the abyss.… Continue Reading

Higgins Responds to Reader’s Concerns

Written by David E. Smith

I recently asked Laurie Higgins, the cultural affairs writer for the Illinois Family Institute, to join me in a podcast. In this episode of Illinois Family Spotlight, we discuss Laurie’s satirical, sarcastic and sassy style of writing, which makes some people uncomfortable. Unfortunately, there are even some who go so far as to say that it is unbiblical or not Christ-like. I understand where this is coming from, but I think it is often misapplied or too often used as an excuse to remain silent.… Continue Reading
