February Matching Challenge Update

I am glad to be able to share some good news with you regarding the $20,000 matching challenge I wrote about earlier this month. The response to this annual matching challenge has been slower than we had hoped, but we are making progress toward our goal of raising a total of $40,000 before the end of the month.

We still need to raise a little more than $14,000 over the next two days in order to realize the full matching challenge.… Continue Reading

Rep. Breen: Rauner Will Not Be Governor Next Term Due to HB 40

Written by John Biver

When it comes to taxpayer funding of for-any-reason abortions in Illinois, Governor Rauner and his anti-baby colleagues have won a battle, but not the war.

“We’re going to be on offense,” the video report begins. And longtime conservatives in Illinois will be thrilled to hear those words from a member of the Illinois State House of Representatives, Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard).

Help Improve the Next Election by Running for Local Office

Written by John Biver

The self-government called for in the first sentence of the U.S. Constitution (“we the people”) doesn’t take a breather now that the November election is over.

Paul Revere, having seen the lanterns in Boston’s Christ Church bell-tower, shouted out, “The British are coming!” Today’s harbingers of theocratic threat get their signals from the towers of secularity, some latticed with ivy, others in the form of broadcasting antennae, and still more in the shape of looming skyscrapers.… Continue Reading

Obama Defends Modern Day Islam / Attacks Christian History

Written by Gary L. Bauer

President Barack Obama used the occasion of the National Prayer Breakfast to once again defend Islam. (Talk about chutzpah!) He did it using a tactic he has used before, but never so boldly.

Speaking before an event sponsored by an organization which professes “that Jesus transcends all forms of government and belief,” Obama lectured his audience, saying “. . . people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” citing “the Crusades and the Inquisition .… Continue Reading
