GOP Candidate for Governor Says He is “Pro-Choice”

Written by David E. Smith

Bruce Rauner,  a venture capitalist from Winnetka, was asked asked by a reporter about his positions on the social issues:  same-sex marriage and abortion.  In the video below, Rauner dodges the question on same-sex marriage by saying that the issue should be put to the voters.  On the issue of abortion, Rauner doesn’t flinch: “I am pro-choice.”

It is hard to believe that any pro-life voter would consider supporting a candidate that supports the death and dismemberment of unborn children.

With the scientific evidence we have today about the humanity of the unborn child, to proudly proclaim support of legalized abortion means that you are either 1.) lying to yourself about what abortion is and does to the unborn child, 2.) lying to the public and hiding the truth of abortion, or 3.) the only other possible explanation is ignorance.… Continue Reading

Candidate Obama versus President Obama on Executive Power

Written by Don Irvine, Accuracy in Media

When U.S. Senator Barack Obama campaigned for president in 2008, he criticized President George W. Bush for bringing “more and more power into the executive branch,” rather than working with Congress to meet his legislative goals:

I taught constitutional law for ten years. I take the Constitution very seriously. The biggest problem that we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse when I’m President of the United States of America.

Considering how President Obama is now using his executive order privilege—delaying the employer mandate in Obamacare, requiring federal contractors to pay a higher minimum wage—it looks like Obama is not keeping his promise to work with Congress.… Continue Reading

IRS Proposes Restrictions on Voter Guides

Written by Nathan Cherry

Have you ever read a voter guide or perused a legislative scorecard? Maybe you are one of the many Americans that have helped with a voter registration drive because you believe every citizen should be involved in electing their lawmakers.

The question is does everyone have the right to perform these tasks?

Putting together a voter guide or organizing a voter registration drive seems fairly mundane. Few people or organizations bother with it because it’s a straightforward activity that leaves no room for subjective opinion. A voter guide shows how specific candidates rank based on their views of certain issues. For example, a pro-life organization might put together a voter guide that shows how candidates voted on bills relating to life issues. If candidates vote in favor of defending life as sacred, the pro-life organization will rank them higher and urge support for such candidates.… Continue Reading

Dan Rutherford Accused of Unwanted Homosexual Advances

Written by David E. Smith

Treasurer Dan Rutherford is being accused of sexual harassment by a male employee in his office.  This same employee suggests that Rutherford has made unwanted sexual advances on other male employees in the Treasurer’s office as well. These allegations are deeply troubling and an indictment on his character, but Rutherford continues to deny any wrongdoing.

Yet, when considering that Rutherford voted as a state senator in 2005 to make homosexuality a civil right, then voted in 2010 to pass homosexual civil unions, and is on record saying he does not support a state marriage amendment — we are led to think that the unmarried Rutherford may not be completely forthcoming about his sexual proclivities.

Obama: ‘Not a Smidgen’ of IRS Corruption

Written by Bob Unruh

Maybe the White House and the Internal Revenue Service have vastly different definitions of “smidgen.”

After all, in President Obama’s interview with Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly this past Sunday, he said there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” linked to the IRS practice of discriminating against conservative and Christian organizations by delaying their applications for tax-exempt status.

The scandal is one of several plaguing the Obama administration over the last year or so. In it, the IRS grilled applicants for 501(c)4 status about the content of their prayers, asked them to make promises not to be involved in pro-life protests and made other legally questionable demands.

Hundreds of conservative and Christian organizations were affected.

The Thomas More Society, which broke the news with evidence that the IRS was harassing pro-life organizations, expressed shock that Obama would deny there was corruption in the targeting of conservatives.… Continue Reading

Those Hurt by Obama and Quinn Must Demand Change

Written by Dan Proft, IllinoisOpportunity.org

This week two Chicago Democrat politicians who are farther out over their skis than Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards ever was (I’ve got Winter Olympics fever) will tell us their version of the state of United States of America, and the state of the State of Illinois.

They will explain to us that with just a few structural tax increases, and a price control or two, we could be living in a modern Utopia not even H.G. Wells could have imagined.

These two Manchurian executives will promise fairness and equality.  But all they really have to offer is the fool’s gold of resentment and entitlement.

Where did those two million jobs go since President Barack Obama took office? The one-percenters are hiding them in their yachts and Swiss bank accounts.… Continue Reading

Bruce Rauner and Death of a Salesman’s Campaign

Written by Doug Ibendahl

There’s a certain long-time best-seller out there which famously claims: “No man can serve two masters . . . Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Assuming that claim is true, Bruce Rauner strikes me as a guy who got in line for mammon, and then went back for seconds.

Full disclaimer here in the interest of not arousing the stable of attorneys Rauner Inc. likely has on retainer. I know absolutely nothing about Mr. Rauner’s religious beliefs and/or lack thereof.

No one is saying Rauner is a bad person because he’s rich. On the contrary. America became a superpower because we rightly encourage success. “A rising tide lifts all boats” and all of that. I have an MBA in Finance from the University of Chicago. I get it.… Continue Reading

Pro-death Pac Attempts To Influence Yet Another Seat In the Illinois House


Written by Richard Hartian

For those of you that think human life is important you may want to take note of significant donations to political candidates from pro-death political action committees (PACs) as in the case of Amanda Mancke who is running to replace State Representative Tom Cross in the Plainfield area.

According to the Illinois State Board of Elections, Ms. Mancke received $2000 from Personal PAC Inc. who’s self proclaimed sole purpose is “To elect pro-choice candidates at state and local level”. The funds were donated to “Friends To Elect Amanda Mancke” of whom Amanda Mancke is the chairman.

In Illinois there is an increasing tendency for non-conservative and anti-family candidates to run as Republicans.  Pro-abortion is not a conservative or pro-family viewpoint.

It appears that Ms.… Continue Reading

Obama Moves to Weaponize IRS

Written by Matt Barber

In 2010 millions of American tea-party constitutionalists, to include the GOP’s Christian base, united in a remarkable grass-roots effort to rein in our unbridled federal government and return it to its expressly limited constitutional confines. As a result, an unprecedented number of counter-constitutionalist lawmakers (read: liberal Democrats) were swept from office.

The Obama administration wasn’t going to take this lying down. Whether it was by tacit approval or via direct order remains largely immaterial. The president quickly and unlawfully politicized the Internal Revenue Service, using it as a weapon against his political enemies. In an explosive scandal that continues to grow, the Obama IRS was caught – smoking gun in hand – intentionally targeting conservative and Christian organizations and individuals for harassment, intimidation and, ultimately, for political destruction.… Continue Reading

Rauner & Homosexual Activists Donate To GOP Traitor Tom Cross

From the IllinoisReview.com blog:

Just as the year end campaign fund drive closed for 2013, Illinois GOP gubernatorial primary candidate Bruce Rauner and his wife Diana each maxed out in the GOP treasurer’s primary race by writing $5300 checks to former House Minority Leader State Rep. Tom Cross (Plainfield).

Cross is successfully pulling in campaign contributions from persons and organizations he’s worked with over the years he headed Illinois’ House Republican Caucus. According to Illinois State Board of Election records, Cross’ GOP primary opponent, DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan, is struggling to gather the funds to set up tough primary competition.

The Rauners’ $10,600 donation was joined by donations from other well-heeled Chicago influentials, including two from the billionaire Reyes Holdings’ family – Christopher and Jude – as well as $5300 from Chicago Cubs’ owner Laura Ricketts.
