The little noticed loophole in Illinois law that would allow abortions up to the moment of birth.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker leaves the podium after talking about the reported draft opinion that suggests the U.S. Supreme Court could be poised to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision at the Thompson Center in Chicago on May 3, 2022.  (Jose M. Osorio / Chicago Tribune) Reports that the law would allow abortions only... Read more »

Biden wants to define Title IX to include gender identity.

Flies in the face of the law’s intent. No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. — Title IX of  Education Amendments of 1972. Now comes... Read more »

Are progressives or conservatives a greater threat to democracy?

Can democracy survive? (C-Span) Could both sides be right that the other side is the biggest threat? Obviously, both sides can’t be right. One side or the other is the biggest threat. But if you watch MSNBC, CNN, FoxNews or loads of other media, you’ll discover that both sides believe that the threat comes exclusively... Read more »

Who opened the Capitol doors on Jan. 6 to allow in the mob?


Florida's unemployment rate is lower than Illinois'.

Once again, the Land of Lincoln is near the bottom of the pack. WalletHub, whose findings usually prove to be an embarrassment to contracting Illinois, has given the state another black eye: It’s unemployment rate is in the basement. Hate to keep comparing Florida to Illinois (that’s a lie), but this red state run by... Read more »

Jan. 6 hearings prove Trump is a tool. Still waiting to hear evidence he engineered the Capitol break-in.

He hasn’t a clue about how democracy, the separation of powers and our constitution works. Okay, no arguing that ex-President Donald Trump did some stupid stuff on Jan, 6–before and after–but the House kangaroo court directed by Speaker Nancy Pelosi so far has failed to demonstrate that he planned and implemented the attack on the...

Thanks, Mr. President Joe for screwing up our retirement big time.

Biden has the gall to compare Trump to Herbert Hoover. Is Biden too stupid to know just how stupid he is? How ignorant he looks trying to absolve himself from any responsibility for the rampaging inflation? For how he looks like a flame-flam, con man that everyone can see through? At least, that is, a...

Illinois is dead last among the states for the racial equality of its economy.

Florida is the seventh best. Not to compare that state that has been run (into the ground) by succession of Democratic buffoons and gonifs, but consider how poorly Illinois compares with the state governed by Ron DeSantis and a Republican legislature. This is Wallet Hubs finding in its study comparing in racial economy of all... Read more »

Here's evidence that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

It’s the other side of the story that the Jan. 6 committee has ignored. Judge for yourself. “Trump continues to insist without evidence that the 2020 election was stolen…” — typical news story. Well, then, here’s some evidence that you won’t get from the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN. MSNBC and other legacy media... Read more »

What country doesn't allow the accused to defend himself?

A 1950s show trial in communist China What country doesn’t allow the prosecution’s witnesses to be cross-examined by the defense? What country puts the prosecution’s friends on the jury? What country allows members of the jury to have made up their minds beforehand? What country puts on show trials for the sole purpose of persuading... Read more »
