It’s almost election time and that means we could all use a good parody video. This is the best one I’ve seen. Take a look! Sadly, I guess Gov. Rauner and his friends at the Illinois Policy Institute didn’t think this parody video of their faux Madigan documentary/hit piece/excuse for a political ad very funny.... Read more »

Wheaton College Must Fire Larycia Hawkins
Was Wheaton College right in suspending Dr. Larycia Hawkins for violating the Christian college’s Statement of Faith and Educational Purpose? Yes, they were. Now they need to fire her.

KELLY: Media as guilty as Rahm in cover-up of Laquan McDonald story
Here’s something else you should be angry about: Not one of Chicago’s major media outlets bothered to investigate the Laquan McDonald police shooting story even though they knew about it.

I’m not buying Gov. Bruce Rauner’s fishy feud with Rahm Emanuel and neither should you. It’s a ruse. A PR stunt. A #fakefeud. This is what’s really going on: Mayor Emanuel and his cronies in the Chicago City Council just passed a massive $720 million hike in new property taxes and fees. They don’t want... Read more »

Thanks Rahm: Property tax hike, Uber rules will soak Chicagoans for millions
If you live in Chicago, you know all about the “Rahm tax” – the record $600 million property tax increase Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he needs shore up police and fire pensions, which account for most of the city’s unfunded liability.

Angry about Rahm's $550 million property tax hike? Here's an Uber proposal
There’s nothing indecent about the following proposal on property tax relief but Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Uber would have you believe it is. I realize Mayor Emanuel doesn’t want to tax Uber the way he taxes and imposes fees on the cab industry. After all, his little brother, Ari, is a big early Uber investor... Read more »

KELLY TO GREG HINZ: Don't drop the ball on Mark Kirk like you did on Rahm

KELLY TO GREG HINZ: Don't drop the ball on Mark Kirk like you did on Rahm

It made sure that Rahm Emanuel... Read more »

IF RAHM WINS: $750 million in Chicago property tax increases, school closings coming
