— Will Ken Griffin give the GOP or a Gov candidate $300 million needed to elect a Governor, statewide candidates, and legislative candidates?
Martin: “Who cares if Mayor Irvin voted for a Democrat. It’s immaterial…Reagan was a Dem before becoming a Republican.”
Berkowitz: Media should put a mike in Irvin’s face and ask: “What do you think about Teachers unions closing down public schools again?”

–Is inflation out of control because U. S. Gov spent four trillion dollars in the last 20 months and the market fears Biden might succeed in spending two trillion more? or
— Or, will inflation decline because Biden’s Build Back Bitter failed to pass last year and maybe the failure will continue through-out 2022, and maybe even forever if the GOP takes control of one and maybe two chambers of congress in 2022?
— Will Ken Griffin give the GOP or a specific candidate $300 million so GOP can elect a Governor, one or more statewide candidates and multiple legislative candidates?
-Watch clip of Berkowitz interviewing Stephanie Trussell (now Senator Bailey’s IL Lt. Gov. running mate) in 2019 (at 8:05 to 8:40 into the show) about her long time support for school vouchers- school choice.
Berkowitz: Some media member should put a mike in Mayor Irvin’s face and ask him: “What do you think about [Teachers unions] closing down public schools again?” That is way more important than how he voted in a primary.
Martin: “That’s exactly right… Who cares if he voted in a Primary for a Democrat? It’s immaterial… Ronald Reagan was a Democrat before he became a Republican.”
Berkowitz and Martin discuss Dan Webb’s report, made public this week. Berkowitz: “… Maybe Foxx could be disciplined for her abuse of discretion and lose her “State’s Attorney Job.”
–Berkowitz: Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart (D-Chicago’s 19th Ward) blames the continued violent carjacking carnage on auto manufacturers, while ignoring- with WGN’s Paul Lisnik- State’s Attorney Foxx’s choice not to prosecute juvenile carjackers as adults, to prosecute violent offenders hardly at all, and the massive increase in electronic monitoring to try, unsuccessfully, to keep track of violent criminals released from jail under Judge Evans’ policy of having bail judges require no or low bail for frequent violent offenders.
