Michael Madigan And John Cullerton Have Used $3.5 Million In Campaign Funds For Cubs, Bulls, And White Sox Season Tickets

With playoff baseball in Chicago and a critical election just around the corner an examination of Illinois Board of Elections campaign reports by USofArn.com shows that the states two most powerful legislative leaders Speaker Michael Madigan(D-Chicago) and Senate President John Cullerton(D-Chicago) have spent a combined $3.5 million from their campaign funds to purchase season tickets for the Chicago Cubs, Bulls, and White Sox dating back to 1999. They are the only two lawmakers to make such purchases according to state records.

Michael Madigan’s spokesman Steve Brown told USofArn that the Speaker used some of those  tickets to attend games with his friends and family, which includes his daughter Lisa Madigan the states Attorney General. Despite multiple attempts Mr. Brown hasn’t responded any further to questions family-video-internetabout Speaker Madigan’s campaign spending(Which includes how and why he spent more than $700 at a Springfield Family Video for internet service from 1999-2003 when they’ve never offered that service).

Chicago residents learned earlier in the MLB post season that Chicago politicians were given special access to Cubs playoff tickets as they try to break the teams 108 year World Series curse.

There were also $23,000 in unspecified season ticket purchases by Madigan to the University of Notre Dame, which for the geography challenged is in Indiana, not Illinois. Just in the latest 3rd quarter report Madigan used more than $42,000 in campaign funds to purchase Cubs tickets.

cullerton-soxs-2016John Cullerton, who became President of the Illinois Senate in 2009, used more than $418,000 from his campaign fund for Cubs tickets, over $300,000 for White Sox tickets, and another $178,954 for Bulls tickets from the first quarter of this year going back to 1999.



reinsdorf-tixCampaign records also show that in the Summer of 2004 Michael Madigan bought nearly $500 worth of White Sox tickets off of team owner Jerry Reinsdorf, who also owns the Chicago Bulls.

Records also show Sen. Cullerton used over $18,000 in campaign funds for unspecified tickets from Stub Hub, plus another $7,000 for more unspecified tickets from other ticket vendors, to go along with nearly $8,000 worth of Chicago Bears tickets and over $10,000 in unnamed event tickets at the United Center.

One Illinois lawmaker who wished anonymity couldn’t stop laughing at how brazen Madigan and Cullerton were with this misuse of campaign funds especially given the ongoing campaign spending scandal involving Illinois Auditor General Frank Mautino, who spent 24 years in the state legislature as a top Madigan lieutenant. Mautino is under state and federal investigation for half a million dollars in questionable spending at his home town gas station and bank.

It is supposed to be against Illinois campaign spending law(s) for a politician to use their campaign funds for personal gain.

Illinois Auditor General Frank Mautino Is Under Federal Investigation Over Campaign Spending

Frank Mautino

Corruption in Illinois is legion.

In recent years former Democrat congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to prison for misusing campaign funds to benefit himself. Ex-congressman Aaron Schock, a Republican, is almost certainly going to be heading to prison as well over his using his campaign and office funds to decorate his DC office in the style of the British TV series Downton Abbey. Now it looks like Illinois’ Auditor General Frank Mautino, who has been on the job less than 6 months, will be joining them as it has been confirmed that federal prosecutors have impaneled a grand jury to look into a myriad of campaign spending problems from his time as a state Representative.

The Springfield based Illinois Times reported Thursday that sources had told them that federal prosecutors have started a grand jury investigation into Mautino’s campaign spending and that the grand jury has issued subpoenas to some of Mautino’s former campaign workers.

Mautino’s spokesperson Thursday afternoon told reporters that Mautino is indeed under investigation and that he is cooperating with the US attorney’s office.  The spokesperson added that Mautino will not answer any questions about his campaign spending problems because of the federal inquiry.

That continues Mautino’s nearly 6 month-long silence on the many problems facing him since basically his first day on the job as the states top fiscal watchdog. Recently 20 Republican lawmakers sent Mautino their third letter since February insisting that he start producing answers to the scandal that has dogged him since the Illinois Times first reported in January that he had gotten thousands of dollars in campaign donations after it was obvious to everyone that he was going to be selected by Speaker Michael Madigan to take over for the retiring William Holland.

Following that first Illinois Times story the Edgar County Watchdogs combed over 10 years worth of campaign spending reports from Mautino’s 24 years in the state legislature, where would rise to Deputy Majority Leader in 2009, and found that Frank had spent nearly $250,000 for gas and repairs at Happy’s service station in Mautino’s hometown of Spring Valley.

Later the Edgar County Watchdogs found another $250,000 in questionable expenditures made to Spring Valley City Bank for such things as campaign workers, poll watchers, and travel to Chicago. Records also showed that Mautino made loan payments far in excess of his loan amount.

After that the Ottawa Times’ David Giuliani found Mautino had spent nearly $78,000 for meals at 4 Spring Valley restaurants including spending $34,000 at the pizzeria owned by his wife’s family. Giuliani has also found that Mautino paid more for a dumpster than the waste management company even charges.

Further examination of Mautino’s campaign records by USofArn.com found Frank used $8,000 since 1999 to purchase American and Illinois flags at a shop in Springfield averaging four and a half visits a year.  Records also showed Mautino paid his several of his campaign workers tens of thousands of dollars to do repairs to his Spring Valley office, which he rented for 8 years rent free and then paid $100 a month for.  Frank’s sweetheart lease also somehow included language that had Frank use thousands of dollars from his campaign to repave the parking lot, replace a floor, and replace the furnace twice.

Open The Book’s founder Adam Andrzejewski has taken all of that and has pushed for months for Mautino to come clean and was the first person to call on Mautino to resign as Auditor General.

Lawmakers, and the media have been trying to get Mautino to give an explanation, an excuse, a denial, something, anything to put at least some trust back in him and the office of Auditor General, and that hasn’t been happening.

In reaction to Thursday’s revelations state Rep. Jeanne Ives(R-Wheaton) said that, “A cloud of mistrust surrounds Mr. Mautino and his forthrightness and transparency in the handling of campaign money. Taxpayers deserve a qualified person as auditor general who is beyond reproach.”

In the past Ives has called on Mautino to resign and last week pointed out that should Mautino finish out 2016 as Auditor General he will get a lifetime boost in his pension as the salary for Auditor General($150,000 approx) is much higher than what he was making as a Representative($84,000 approx).

The federal probe isn’t the end of Frank Mautino’s troubles, earlier this week a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was filed against him by the Edgar County Watchdogs after Mautino failed to produce all emails and other communications he had during the first weeks of the scandal answering the questions that were pouring in to him.  Last week the states Board of Elections found that a complaint against Mautino citing the spending at Happy’s and Spring Valley City Bank was found to be justified and Mautino was given until July 1st to amend his campaign reports and provide a satisfactory level of explanation for the spending irregularities, failure to do so could result in Mautino being fined by the BoE.

David Giuliani has tweeted late Thursday that Speaker Michael Madigan, who made Mautino Auditor General, and to whom Mautino was a top Lieutenant, said that he was unaware of the federal probe into Mautino’s campaign spending and that Republicans who have been demanding answers and accountability are “playing politics”.


If Madigan wants to call the investigation into Frank’s obvious campaign spending problem partisan politic playing then he’s giving further evidence that in Illinois corruption is legion.

Independence Day 2015 – “…we mutually pledge to each other…”

by Jesus Alaniz

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being accompanied by a single mother during a photoshoot in Chicago. I’d noticed her opinions before and was very pleased that she seemed to be an educated and well informed person. It was at that time I had an epiphany between the struggling working class trying to make ends meet and the politicians I’ve helped.

There are two significant dates regarding the Declaration of Independence. The first is the usual and customary date of July 4th which is celebrated with parades and festivities consisting of people and politicians who call themselves Americans and who lack courage and would rather compromise and sell your soul for their welfare in the “spirit of getting things done”. It has become easier for some to cast ballots for phony Founder wannabes who promises to reform & restore their Liberties only to have them bartered and sold far away at market prices.

The second and probably the most important date is July 2, 1776 in which John Adams wrote in a July 3, 1776 letter to his wife Abigail Adams, “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward, forevermore.” Not so long ago I sat by the river and watched an American Bald eagle fly overhead and I thought of the politicians who come to you asking you for your support only to have them give you an excuse as to why they can’t endorse you or your candidate when you need it. Recently I’ve had people find me and thank me for the letters I write. My heart pours out for the young and old who tell their friends and families about my letters without any fears of retribution, reputation, or fear of losing everything. The introduction to the Declaration reads “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…” I believe the time is coming for me to break away from the politicians who lack the courage to fight. The last line reads “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”  Trust me I will never confuse that honorable single working mother with the slick politician. On this Independence Day I say, “Those who have little and are willing to risk all in the cause of freedom & right, are mine and belong to me – let freedom ring.”

Politicians Are Slaves Too

by Jesus Alaniz

I’ve reflected on our nation’s riots and the arrogant politicians, taxes and laws that may have caused them. I object to the riots because of all of the destruction and looting to personal and business property owners along with the innocent bystanders rather than properly attacking the real enemy. On the other hand our liberty did not come from Colonists sipping tea and munching on crumpets with the English. “We are a nation of laws and the law is the law. We must be obedient to the law and if you don’t like the law then vote for those who’ll change the law or run for public office and change it yourself”, arrogant politicians, courts and police will tell you along with some uninformed citizens. John Adams once said “Facts are stubborn things…” and it is time that we look at some facts and face reality. Ruling parties and their parrots will tell you that America has become a better place since they took office and all about America’s freedom, however, one June 2014 source ranks America as the no. 2 country in the world with the highest incarceration rate with an estimated 707 persons incarcerated for every 100,000 hence America is not as “free” as one might think. I won’t rehash unjust laws and taxes, but I do believe that the balance of power is tipping towards those who were unjustly made “criminals”. In his Spirit of the Law, Montesquieu wrote, “…every tyrant is at the same time a slave…” Freemen and freed convicts can travel, go about and live anywhere whether it’s gated community or the ghetto where politicians dare not go. There are now two powerful forces, those holding office and those who have served their time in prison. Montesquieu observed and wrote “The republic constantly demanded some new tax of me; and I could not decline paying. Since I have grown poor, I have acquired authority; nobody threatens me; I rather threaten others. I can go or stay where I please. The rich already rise from their seats and give me the way. I am a king, I was before a slave: I paid taxes to the republic, now it maintains me: I am no longer afraid of losing: but I hope to acquire.” President Kennedy warned during the Civil Rights movement “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” Lawmakers need to return to representative status, represent their people & their liberties and stop making revenue generating laws that make criminals out of innocent people. Look at our neighborhoods. If crime has increased then you might be enslaved by former slaves who no longer have fear or those who’ve had loved ones unjustly incarcerated. I also detest those who support “social justice”. Study the social justice politicians and in many cases you’ll find they’ve been the ones who raised taxes and passed unjust laws believing they were doing God’s work when they were really doing the devils.

Illinois Budget, Rauner, Madigan & The Illinois Constitution

by Jesus Alaniz

I’ve listened to the baseless charges leveled against Gov. Rauner e.g. that he’s going against Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s counsel, that he needs to follow the Illinois constitution, and that the Illinois supreme court has ruled that Rauner must follow the Illinois constitution, pay and fund those pension costs even if it means jacking up taxes.

Patrick Henry once asked “Who authorized them to speak the language of We the people?” and I have never authorized any court to use my name in “The People of Illinois vs. Bruce Rauner” I find it humorous that anyone thinks we have a righteous and upright “Attorney General”. Who was the self-centered politician who wanted to violate the VI Amendment and make gun owners private information public? Who had to be ordered by court order to produce a carry conceal law? Who used delay tactics to fight these court orders? The answer: Lisa Madigan. The Illinois constitution is the law? Article VIII – Section 2, Finance reads “Proposed expenditures shall not exceed funds estimated to be available for the fiscal year as shown in the budget.” So why have Michael Madigan and Springfield Democrats proposed a budget that is $3 billion over the forecasted budget? Further, 810 ILCS 5/3-806, Ch. 26, par. 3-806 makes it a crime to write checks with insufficient funds and reads in part, “Any person who issues a check or other draft that is not honored upon presentment because the drawer does not have an account with the drawee, or because the drawer does not have sufficient funds in his account…” so where is the “Attorney General”? Where is the “Illinois Supreme Court”? And what about “the law”?

Never heard of these laws? Montesquieu wrote in the Spirit of the Law, “If there is some unfortunate honest man among the people, hints Cardinal Richelieu in his Political Testament, a monarch should be careful not to employ him” but not all have been silent. IL State Rep Jeanne Ives, 42nd District, recently said “I find it incredibly irresponsible that the House Democrats have brought forward a FY16 budget they know is unbalanced. They are promoting their spending plan and they have offered absolutely no information as to how they will fund it. – The majority party has a history of wreckless spending with no regard for how it impacts the citizens whose taxes fund our government. They have not earned the right to even one more cent of the public’s money.” Thomas Jefferson once said “In questions of power then, let no more be heard of [confidence in man] but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Ives understands what a real Constitution is. The Founders were very clear on government’s purpose. The Declaration of Independence reads “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” Illinoisans can no longer afford to be legally robbed by those who are supposed to protect their rights.

Low 2015 Illinois Voter Turnout

Berlin Wall

by Jesus Alaniz

I have heard and read about the low voter turnout in this election. The problem with politics is that government consists of people and people are imperfect e.g. the Aaron Shock spending scandals, Hillary Clinton lying that she came under fire in Bosnia, her false immigrant ancestor claim, etc. George Washington warned “However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which [cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men] will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

Among the first reasons that I see people no longer taking interests in politics is the parties. The Democrat Party is no longer the party of frugal spending and frugal Democrats. It has been hijacked by socialists, Marxists and communists who insist that the government has a right to the people’s earnings by majority vote and mob rule for the good of the state. The moderate tax and spend Democrats having no place to go have filtered themselves into the Republican Party and the real Republicans have been labeled as either conservatives or extremists. Don’t let anyone fool you, there is no such thing as a conservative republican. You either believe and govern according to the rules of republicanism or you don’t, man is either free or he isn’t.

The second item I see and have experienced is a demand for loyalty by both parties regardless of where they stand on the issues. Party loyalists would demand that you support Stalin if there were an R by his name and Mao if there were a D by his name. The only thing missing now are clicking heels proclaiming “Sieg Heil!” to party leaders. Memo to party leaders, many Americans can think for themselves thank you very much.

The third reason people hate politics is money, whether its pieces of eight or thirty pieces of silver, unless you have money the parties could care less who you are and ask your party leaders if they or anyone in their party has ever has ever donated to the other party. Election laws are written in convoluted ways to protect those who wrote them to protect themselves. The 2015 Illinois Candidates Election guide consists of 94 pages of mishmash reminiscent of soviet elections.

To this year’s bewildered politicians, there are local elections, primary elections, mid-term elections and the national general elections but, there is one election that has been overlooked by Michael Madigan, Jim Durkin, Christine Radogno & John Cullerton. In 2014 95,000 Illinoisans ignored your party leaders, elections laws and gave a no confidence vote by voting with their feet and fleeing Illinois the way Germans once fled East Berlin. I have only one edict/request for those remaining in Illinois. Would the last one to leave Illinois please turn out the lights?

Amnesty: An American Hispanic Tea Partier’s View

by Jesus Alaniz

President No Longer Commander in Chief

The illegal alien uses counterfeit documents, engages in identity theft or may impersonate other people upon illegal entry into the United States. Many illegals pay no federal, state income, social security or medicare taxes while taxpayers support their families with food stamps, medical care and other social services. In many cases the US Dollars they obtain are also wire transferred out of the United States to their country of origin rather than investing those dollars back into the US economy that is supporting them.

Being an illegal alien is therefore not a crime but a series of crimes!

But more morally decrepit and vile are the politicians who manipulate illegal immigration to divide and conquer the American people by falsely accusing anyone of being a racist for objecting to amnesty.

Therefore . . .

This angry American of Mexican dissent “… believes it’s to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and undoubtedly the least appreciated people in the entire world”.

The excuse that looking for 14 million illegal aliens, arresting, processing them and then deporting them is too expensive while the IRS spares no expense to audit ordinary Americans tax returns and find some fault in them proves that that hypothetical excuse is nothing but pure hooey.

Rather than establishing justice for a policeman despite the evidence and the eyewitness’ account, Congressman Gutierrez allowed the situation to fester and chose to remain silent while his fellow Democrats refused to let that crisis go to waste. Mr. Obama, Mr. Gutierrez, and Mr. Holder the victims of Operation Fast & Furious and Border Guard Brian Terry now cry from their grave DON’T SHOOT!

A nation without borders is not a nation and a nation and can have no head of state. Mr. Obama, Mr. Gutierrez, the fact that our borders remain insecure perhaps explains why China, Russia, Iran and North Korea don’t respect you.

The inept excuse that budget cuts prevent us from securing the borders is unacceptable! President John F Kennedy once said “Today we need a nation of minute men; citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom” Democrat voters wake up! Your party has been hijacked by socialists, marxists, communists and influenced by muslim fanatics and is no longer the party of Jack and Bobby Kennedy!

Obama, says that he’s concerned “as a Christian” that other Christians are not being as “loving” and continues to insist that free Americans surrender their guns and their religion yet leaves our southern border open to and refuses to demand the same of Abu Nidal, Abu Sayyef, Al Aqsa, al-Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia, Al-Shabaab, Ansar al-Islam, Boko Haram, ETA, PLO, Hamass, Hezbolah, ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban etc. etc. etc. Mr. Obama, the right of self-defense is a natural right and natural rights come not from the generosity of the state but from the Hand of God and a government that cannot trust its citizens with guns is a government that cannot, shall not and must never be trusted by the American people.

Islam has not nor has it ever been “interwoven into the American fabric”. In a 1786 letter to John Jay, Thomas Jefferson & John Adams wrote that Tripoli’s ambassador informed them that islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”…Mr. Obama, Congressman Joe Wilson was right, you lie!!!

We have a responsibility to our military veterans and the families of those who have sacrificed loved ones for our country. A President who uses his phone and pen to give illegal aliens medical assistance and grant them amnesty while putting our veterans on a medical waiting list is not be respected as the “commander in chief”.

President John Adams wrote “Be not intimidated…nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice” It’s time to take political correctness and put it in the trash where it belongs. If Mexican voter ID cards are good enough for Mexican voters in Mexico, then voter ID’s are good enough for all qualified voters in America

Patriotism means standing by your government when they deserve it and standing up to your government when needed and therefore I call upon the RNHA, the Illinois Republican National Hispanic Assembly and Illinois Lt. Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti to perform their civic duty and demand that our borders be secured, that immigration laws be enforced and say “NO” to amnesty.

May He Who Has No Name, Bless, Keep and Smile Upon Our Best Friend, Israel

And May God Bless America!!!

Truth – The New Hate Speech

by Jesus Alaniz

In 1963, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote “Freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they have, or the views they express, or the words they speak or write” and Shakespeare wrote in The Merchant of Venice, “The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose…O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!” Evil, sin, morality and wrong doing has been changed to “social issues” rather than being called the ilk that it is and let us look where it’s taken our society. A police shooting regardless of the facts & testimony brings in politicians, Al Sharpton, protests, the burning of communities, mobs robbing stores, burning cars and yes even shooting police in the neck. More black babies are aborted in the US than any other race, so where’s the aforementioned when an unarmed, innocent, black baby with no criminal record, is butchered and vacuumed out of their mother? Be I alone among the pro-lifers at one of their demonstrations and they would scream woman’s rights, the law etc.

The court threw out a sodomy case that was witnessed by a policeman through a window between two consenting adults in the US Supreme Court case, Bowers v. Hardwick. Straight people don’t care what straight people are doing in the privacy of their own homes so what makes the politicians, major newspapers & networks and same sex activists think that anyone wants to know what they’re doing? Some folks ask “What Would Jesus Do”? Wouldn’t Jesus love them? The answer is undoubtedly, “yes” but let’s tell the rest of the story. In John 8:4 an adulteress is brought before Jesus and Jesus is asked how she should be judged. Jesus does indeed say “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” After the ashamed crowd leaves, Christ questions the woman and then peacefully instructs her to “Go and sin no more”. Nowhere in scripture does Christ lecture the crowd that “they are on the wrong side of history” and that Christ marches in parades, displays banners etc. honoring her lifestyle. Some people say the times have changed, I disagree. The times are the same it’s the attitudes that have changed. Henry David Thoreau wrote “…most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders — serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God.” We have entered an age where “…telling the truth is a revolutionary act – truth has become the new hate speech & society has become so fake that truth actually bothers people”. Psalm 97:10 reads “Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” Our nation needs more Divine mercy & forgiveness and less social correctness, let us then love all sinners but hate sin and evil.

Religious Freedom, First Amendment, Same Sex & America’s Future

by Jesus Alaniz

An inscription on Panel 3 on Jefferson’s Memorial reads “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” A state governor, bakers, wedding photographers and now a pizza owner are having their First Amendment Rights stripped away for being true to their faith. Militants and politicians are energizing that community as another demographic to conquer and divide the American people for the purpose of gaining votes. I believe I’m seeing parallels where our nation is headed.

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) once wrote “Once abolish the God and the government becomes the God.” Politicians now see themselves as God, believing that their legislation and support for that group can trump God’s Law. Matthew 7:15 warns us to be aware of false prophets dressed in sheep’s clothing. George Washington said “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like [sheep] to the slaughter.” Our nation’s unscrupulous leaders and even some unscrupulous ministers are turning a [blind eye] to all manners of evil. In Genesis 19:10 the angels blind the men of Sodom who want to touch them. In Genesis 18: 23-33 Abraham bargains with a patient God begging the Almighty to spare the city if God can find a few righteous people in Sodom. In the end God finds none and destroys the city. It was Thomas Jefferson who also said “Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

People are being bullied into silence in the spirit of political correctness as was done in the Soviet Union, China and North Korea, while politicians water down our right to self-defense. John Adams wrote “The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.” And what better way is there to destroy the I and the II Amendments than by turning American against American. In the meantime, the Muslim population continues to grow in America. One report reads, “What is clear, however, is that the Muslim-American population has been growing rapidly as a result of immigration, a high birth rate, and conversions.” Muslims are also demanding Sharia (Islamic) Law more and more in America & Canada. The Quran condemns homosexuality and punishments range from banishment to stoning and some Muslims don’t deny it.

Turn the American people against each other, then silence them through political correctness and then disarm them while importing a foreign religion that is incompatible with the Constitution. In time the silent & unarmed are destroyed for the security of the state followed by the immoral being double-crossed & destroyed according to a false religion, their prophet and their god. The churches, synagogues and temples are also destroyed to rewrite a history that Judaism, Christianity and Hinduism etc. never were and the new Islamic state always was. Could I be wrong? I suppose, but look at what ISIS has done and is doing, then read Revelation 20:4 and decide for yourself.


Genesis 19:11 – Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.


Genesis 19:10 – Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.


Genesis 18:23 – 33 Then he said, “May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more. What if only ten can be found there?” He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it.”

Corporate Income Taxes – We’re On Strike

by Jesus Alaniz

I listened to a group of folks complain that there are corporations who don’t pay any income taxes in Illinois. Rather than demanding that the people have the same freedom as the corporations they demanded that those corporations share in the same misery that has enslaved thousands of families & people and causing them to leave Illinois along with billions in taxable income.

We got our taxes done and we discovered that not only will we not get a refund this year, but will have to pay more in taxes this year and that we will probably have to pay even more in taxes next year despite a deep cut in our combined income. People yelling, screaming, holding up signs and protesting in mobs demanding that corporations pay their fair share in taxes will not help my wife and I one iota. In fact, it will only give the politicians more money to waste or buy votes with. One source states that “the United States has the third highest general top marginal corporate income tax rate in the world at 39.1 percent, exceeded only by Chad and the United Arab Emirates” while the worldwide average is 22.6% so why would anyone want the government to tax companies even more? In the 1819 United States Supreme Court case McCulloch v. Maryland, Chief Justice John Marshall stated “…the power to tax involves the power to destroy…” yet there are still those who demand that their representatives tax corporations even more, raise the minimum wage to collect still more taxes and create more laws to control corporations. In 1774 Edmund Burke wrote of a representative’s duty, “It is his duty to sacrifice his repose, his pleasures, his satisfactions, to theirs; and above all, ever, and in all cases, to prefer their interest to his own. But his unbiassed opinion, his mature judgment, his enlightened conscience, he ought not to sacrifice to you, to any man, or to any set of men living. These he does not derive from your pleasure; no, nor from the law and the constitution. They are a trust from Providence, for the abuse of which he is deeply answerable. [Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion].”

In July 2012 Barrack Obama stated “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that…” We are no longer a nation of laws but a nation of men one trying to enslave or control another for our own sake. We have become demented preferring twelve slaves rather than seeing one free man. It is well, let those who demand that others suffer for them “build it themselves”. You can tax, mandate and regulate me but no law can force me to innovate invent, create or produce for the state. There are companies and those of us ready and eager to produce once again but until our spirits, minds and hands are free again…”we’re on strike”.
