Chicago establishes itself a ‘Sanctuary City’ for ‘Bodily Autonomy’: Including female genital mutilation, ‘transgender’ care and abortion until birth… Still waiting for their Second Amendment Sanctuary ordinance…

September 28, 2022

Female genital mutilation.  “Gender Affirmation” for children to get their breasts removed, sterilization surgery.  Abortion right up until birth.  Chicago has gone all in with social justice poker.  It’s odd how “bodily autonomy” is so important with regard to abortion, genital mutilation for religious reasons and transgender stuff, but personal autonomy about masking or...

Wanna know how to doom your campaign downstate? Just do a RINO SCOTT PRESTON in Bloomington-Normal to Peoria and come out in support of gun control

September 27, 2022

Scott Preston won his primary race for State Representative in the 91st district with the help of “Dear Leader” Jim Durkin. Who the hell is Jim Durkin?  He’s the House minority leader.  He demands legislators address him as “Leader Durkin.”  Because, after all, he’s such a great narcissistic “dear leader.” Under Durkin’s “leadership” (chuckle)...

September 27, 2022

Meet Devin Krueger, aged 27 – otherwise known as old enough to know better.  He writes like a second-grader and he’s got the deep-thought intellect of one as well.  He’s also a bad boy.  A really bad boy. He sees himself as a local John Dillinger – sans the bank robberies.  Maybe because he...

September 27, 2022

While CNN has new leadership, it hasn’t yet changed its fake news ways and radical political ideologies. Their latest attempt at gaslighting of the American public is pushing the “rethinking criminal justice” narrative that says keeping violent criminal predators in prison doesn’t make Americans safer.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:  No Cash Bail Law (aka ‘The Purge Law’) will assure the continued decay of Democrat-controlled cities

To the Editor: Illinois’ latest criminal justice and cash bail reform law is a crime in and of itself. It seems Jabba the Pritzker is determined to keep Illinois’ felons on the streets, at any cost: The Democrats tell us that cash bail is racist and punishes poverty. Most people know better. Has grinding...
