Report: Chicago still America's most corrupt city

That’s not news. But a new report confirms what we’ve long know, but which again demonstrates that the Democrats who control Chicago not only don’t care, but also are who are mostly responsible for the corruption. In it’s “Continuing Corruption in Illinois,” authored by UIC professor and former alderman Dick Simpson and others, Illinois was named... Read more »

Candace Owens: Get ready for a mass exodus of black people from the Democrat Party

Understanding Candace Owens, the woman who ignited the Kanye West controversy. It was Candace Owens, communication director for Turning Point USA*, whose scolding of Black Lives Matter promoted superstar Kanye West to tweet that he likes the way she thinks. Since then, she and West have been dragged over the racist coals, fueled by progressives whose heads... Read more »

Leonard Pitts Jr., it's you who's deplorable

Syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. rejected the idea of trying to “understand” supporters of President Donald Trump because they are a bunch of white, Christian Americans alarmed by the loss of their “pre-eminence.” (“Do we really need to ‘understand’ Trump supporters?” as published in the Chicago Tribune.) Pitts was responding to a reader who suggested in... Read more »

Democrats blow a mountain of political capital trying to nail CIA nominee Gina Haspel

Gina Haspel, nominated to head the CIA, turned Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee every which way as she deftly answered one ridiculous question after another. The Democratic game plan was so obvious as to be laughable: Get her to admit that enhanced intelligence techniques (e.g. waterboarding) used to obtain information to prevent more devastating terrorist...

Oprah for President? Bring it on

Lot’s of people would love to see Oprah Winfrey take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. They believe that Trump would thump Oprah. They might be right: A rich, liberal  candidate from the coast? Democrats already had one of those and look what it got them: Trump.  Trump says he would be glad to take... Read more »

Rep. Gutierrez' rigged succession: it's the Chicago Way

“[There is] no quid pro quo,” — Rep. Luis Gutierrez’ denial that there was a secret, backroom deal behind his sudden, surprising retirement from  his congressional seat and endorsement of Jesus “Chuy” Garcia as his successor. Oh, sure. That’ll rank right up there in Chicago political lore with the late Mayor Richard J. Daley’s famously absurd assertion that, “There... Read more »

A timely behind-the-scenes look at “Chuy” Garcia's mayoral campaign

Jesus “Chuy” Garcia is back in the news today as he is reportedly preparing to run for longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez’s seat in Congress.  The news came as Gutierrez, one of the House’s most vocal firebrands, has announced his retirement. Garcia, a Cook County Board commissioner,  lost in a rare run-off race for... Read more »

Senate rejects progressive bias and confirms an "orthodox" Catholic to federal judgeship

Amy Coney Barrett whom Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, California Sen. Diane Feinstein and others attacked for her “orthodox” Catholicism and other imagined infirmities, has been confirmed as a judge on Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals whose jurisdiction includes Illinois. At the same time, the Senate confirmed Joan Larsen’s appointment to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. All the... Read more »

The worst, mostly politically biased story I remember seeing is in the Chicago Tribune

I’ve worked for the Chicago Tribune (former contribution op-ed columnist) and I get no pleasure from pointing this out. The story in question is: “Did voter ID laws hurt election turnout? Look at Milwaukee” The story suggests, implies, concludes (whatever) that, “Yes. The poor and minorities were hurt by the Wisconsin law that requires some form... Read more »

Evan McMullen--the first independent presidential candidate to win a state since 1968?

Conservative Republican Evan McMullen and his running mate, Mindy Finn, the founder of Empowered Women, have been steadily drawing more support from independents and others who can’t bring themselves to vote for either of the despicable major party candidates, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump. They might even win the state of Utah, the first independent... Read more »
