Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger was on a whirlwind tour on our favorite cable channel Fox News Monday where he continued his attacks against the Freedom Caucus and to slurp for the GOP establishments new it guy Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan.

On Outnumbered Kinzinger said of Paul Ryan, “He’s the only guy who can unite a pretty fractured caucus right now.” Kinzinger also said that, “If you can’t accept Paul Ryan I don’t know how we can get through this.”

Many conservatives have problems with Paul Ryan because of his past support for amnesty, having the endorsement of Luis Gutierrez doesn’t help, there is also the fact that Ryan has spent nearly is entire adult life in Washington and is a policy wonk to boot not a leader of anyone or anything.  Ryan’s having supported TARP, Medicare part D, and the like in years past aren’t proving to be resume enhancers either.

To this criticism of Ryan Kinzinger said on Outnumbered that, “Unfortenetly I think there is a strain in the party that only accepts perfect and not good…They(Freedom Caucus) have to realize that there are 247 members of the Republican Party(in the House) not just 30.”

Earlier in the day on Fox and Friends Kinzinger was more pointed in his attacks on the Freedom Caucus saying that they had and are taking the speakership hostage.

“The reality is there is this group of people trying to hold the speakership hostage and there is a group of us that says that’s not going to happen. We need somebody to bring the party together not hold the Speaker hostage.”

The Freedom Caucus is insisting that anyone who wants to become Speaker and wants their support has to promise to make major changes to the way the House of Representatives and the Republican Caucus as a whole are run, such as not letting the Speaker have a say on committee assignments or chairmanships, and letting the legislative and committee processes work themselves out instead of lurching from one piece of must pass legislation to another. When asked by Brian Kilmeade about Paul Ryan agreeing to the demands of the Freedom Caucus would be a bad deal Kinzinger said that it absolutely would be and warned any other potential Republican Speaker that he or she shouldn’t make a deal with the Freedom Caucus become there are only 40 or so of them and there are 247 Republicans in the House.   On the web exclusive Overtime portion of Outnumbered Kinzinger attacked Freedom Caucus members for going on TV and naming names of Republicans who are betraying conservative principles because he thinks doing so if beyond reproach.   On Kilmeade’s Fox News radio program following the TV show Kinzinger said that the Freedom Caucus’s demands to reform the power of the Speaker would only put Nancy Pelosi and President Obama in charge of the House. “You’ve got…members of the so called Freedom Caucus..and they’ve claimed that they in essence want to hold the process hostage. When I hear people say he’s(Paul Ryan) not conservative enough I just want to shake my head and wonder what level, what are we trying to strive after if somebody like Paul Ryan, a great leader, isn’t.  In essence these Tea Party, so called Freedom Caucus folks are trying to actually diminish the power of the Speaker…We need to com together as a family and say diminishing the power of the Speaker of the House will only put President Obama and Nancy Pelosi in charge.” <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://video.foxnews.com/v/embed.js?id=4552717268001&w=466&h=263″></script><noscript>Watch the latest video at <a href=”http://video.foxnews.com”>video.foxnews.com</a></noscript>  At the end of Kinzinger’s radio interview he went after the Tea Party, whom he used in 2010 to get elected and has since been stabbing in the back(and eye) saying, “(The Tea Party) Is a much smaller movement now(Than 2010) and its people I think in some cases the Tea Party movement has moved the goal post from smaller government to shut the government down, and that’s something I can’t go along with.” Actually Adam we Tea Partiers are still all about limited government.  It is you who has moved the goal post.  In 2010 it was all about repealing Obamacare, and tackling the national debt, and ending the bailouts. In 2015 all we are getting from Adam Kinzinger and his fellow establishment Republicans is amnesty, more amnesty, don’t try to defund Obamacare, don’t try to defund Planned Parenthood and its baby butchery, don’t try to reverse the Supreme Courts nationalization of same sex marriage, just let Boehner, McConnell and the boys surrender to Obama preemptively and we’ll get everything we want when Jeb Bush is President. No thanks. Thankfully Joe from California called into Kilmeade’s program and let Kinzinger have it for his abandonment of the Tea Party and conservatives for a seat next to John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, and now Paul Ryan’s backside.  Joe would say to Kinzinger that he just doesn’t get it and why people are angry at RINOs like him to which Kinzinger replied, “Look I would put my conservative credentials up against anybody in the House of Representatives…This is the most conservative Republican caucus probably ever, and the biggest since WWII. The divide and the difference isn’t conservative credentials its in how you achieve big things..Somehow if we talk about compromise, we talk about working with the other side to achieve  3 yard, 5 yard passes that move the conservative message, it’s somehow not conservative unless you do short of shutting the government down and everything else.” If Adam wants to compare his credential in conservatism to anyone by all means lets put you repeated votes for amnesty against a Steve King or Louie Gohmert.  Want to put your support, along with 41 other RINOs to revive the Export-Import Bank, against Jeb Henserling whose been trying to get rid of that pile of corporate welfare and crony capitalism.  Still want to back Obamatrade Mr. Kinzinger, even Hillary Clinton has come around(or focused grouped) to the realization that is yet another bad deal of Obama’s.  Speaking of which what to compare notes with the Freedom Caucus members when it comes to voting for the Corker bill which totally screwed up the chance to defeat Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. You’ve been a support of every one of Obama, Boehner, and McConnell’s budget, spending, and debt limit deals that have raised taxes, cut veterans benefits, and continue taxpayer funding of unconstitutional executive amnesty, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare, who conservative do you think those votes are. Want to put your vehement support for military intervention in Syria up for scoring congressman Kinzinger? How conservative is it to back arming the Syrian rebels when we know they can and are giving those weapons and themselves to ISIS and Al Qaeda.  Where is it conservative, let alone prudent, to back regime change in Syria when the only one who could fill that power vacuum is ISIS.  Still want to back the US and our allies enforcing a no fly zone over Syria now that the Russians have gotten involved?   Whatever definition of conservative Adam Kinzinger is using he needs to stop and look in the mirror and say to himself “I am a moderate establishment Republican. I am a RINO.” repeatedly until he gets it and understands why he has a 38% score from Conservative Review 

Adam Kinzinger’s War Against The Freedom Caucus

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

Since conservative opposition to John Boehner forced him to resign, and with the subsequent withdrawal of his anointed successor Kevin McCarthy from the Speakers race, Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger as stepped forward as a leader for the moderate establishment wing for the Republican Party in their assault against the House Freedom Caucus, the 40 or so Tea Party conservatives, responsible for ruining the GOP establishments plans to continue to surrender to the Obama, Reid, Pelosi agenda.

Kinzinger and other establishment Republicans like Pete King of New York and Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania are becoming increasingly vocal in their anger and displeasure at the House Freedom Caucus and the forces that are behind them including conservative organizations, talk radio, and the Party’s grassroots base.

Because of this newfound vigor to attack conservatives and the Tea Party, Vox of all places late this week openly suggested that Kinzinger and his fellow moderates join with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats to propel their unnamed candidate as Speaker to victory.  Why not Kinzinger and 40 other moderate Republicans just joined with the Democrats to force a vote to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank onto the House floor.

These same moderate Republicans have been used by Boehner and McCarthy in the past to work with Democrats to pass continuing resolutions, and other budget and debt deals over the last 5 years so whats to stop them from doing it again to make sure someone they want becomes Speaker of the House, ensuring that the status quo remains unchanged and that those responsible for Boehner’s ouster and the ruination of McCarthy’s coronation are severely punished.

And Adam Kinzinger most certainly wants to punish the House Freedom Caucus and acknowledged he’s taking a leadership role for the establishment in an interview with Crain’s Chicago saying, “I’m a leader of the party, and I’m worried that we’re alienating the people”.

At the beginning of the month Kinzinger told the Chicago Sun-Times that the Freedom Caucus, talk radio, and conservative groups such as the Heritage Foundation and FreedomWorks whipped up anger and dissent within the Republican Party and voters to raise money.

On Monday Kinzinger outright said on 1440 WROK in Rockford that the House Freedom Caucus has been hurtful to the Republican Party, saying “now they’re(House Freedom Caucus) willing to put our fights out in public and I think that’s been pretty hurtful(to the GOP).”

In a Tuesday op-ed in Crain’s Chicago Kinzinger said that talk radio, conservative groups, and the Freedom Caucus had hijacked the Tea Party label for profit and were destroying the party from the inside and wholly embraced John Boehner’s characterization of his critics as “false prophets”, while continually lying about being a true Tea Party conservative himself.  In that piece Kinzinger also suggested that he was going to fight tooth and nail against the Tea Party, talk radio, conservative groups, and the House Freedom Caucus to save the Republican Party from them and welcomes all the slings and arrows that he expects to come his way.

On Wednesday Kinzinger was telling leftwing rag and favorite outlet of the GOP establishment Politico, in a quote that got picked up by Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review and read on air by Mark levin, said that he and the other establishment Republicans in the House were done giving compromises to the conservatives and that John Boehner’s scalp was enough, “The question isn’t on us, it’s on the so-called Freedom Caucus — I don’t call them the Freedom Caucus — do they want to be part of a united caucus, or do they want to continue how they are?” asked Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.). “A lot of us say this, I respect them as legislators, and a lot of them are my friends. But they got the scalp of [Speaker John] Boehner, in their mind, and I think we’re done giving them concessions.” Of course this was before McCarthy would withdraw from the Speakers race due in no small part to the Freedom Caucus as a group backing Daniel Webster of Florida’s bid to be Speaker.

Thursday Kinzinger was telling 720 WGN‘s Roe Conn and Anna Davlantes that McCarthy was made to drop out of the Speakers race because the House Freedom Caucus had, “Made unrealistic demands of him.” Kinzinger also said that the House Freedom Caucus and their conservative allies had too much power and criticized them for their name say, “We’re all for freedom, you can call yourself whatever you want.”

Thursday night when asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer if the fight between GOP leadership and the moderates and the House Freedom Caucus conservatives was hurting the Republican Party, “I don’t think it helps…That’s been a concern of mine with the Republican Party is united behind our common principles so it doesn’t help, I think, to send a question to the American people about our ability to govern.”  Later Kinzinger attacked North Carolina congressman Walter Jones over his advice to his fellow Republicans that the next Speaker not have any scandals hiding in their closets saying, “You know people haven’t taken him overly seriously in a long time out here(Washington DC).”

This is a lot of chutzpah for someone who is a major amnesty supporter and the co-chair of Jeb Bush’s Illinois presidential campaign.  Is leading the effort to get the Export-Import bank brought back to life. Continually criticized anyone for wanting to defund Planned Parenthood during the continuing resolution fight last month. Regularly attacks Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Donald Trump and went after Matt Drudge over Obamatrade. Supporters the NSA’s bulk data collection of Americans phone records. And has simply lied to people since he first announced he wanted to be a congressional candidate in 2010.

Adam Kinzinger can think he’s going to lead to war to defeat the House Freedom Caucus and the Tea Party and that that will be his final stepping stone towards being Mark Kirk’s replacement in the Senate all he wants. But as the John Steinbeck wrote in Of Mice and Men, the best laid plans often go awry.


Adam Kinzinger You Are Not And Never Have Been A Tea Party Conservative

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

As the only reporter, blogger, or political commentator that is regularly critical of the things said by Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger(Mark Levin and AM560 The Answers Joe Walsh are occasionally) it is incumbent upon me to set the smug jerk straight.

In an op-ed that ran late Tuesday in Crain’s Chicago Kinzinger wrote about the retirement of Speaker John Boehner, and the forces that drove him out, talk radio, conservative think tanks and grassroots organizations, and the Republican Party’s base, and trashed them all as being profiteers who are only holding the GOP establishment and congressional leadership accountable for money, and listeners, and clicks and hijacked the Tea Party label.

 Boehner nailed the problem with the Republican Party on the head…

In a CBS interview just after announcing he would leave his post, Boehner nailed the reason: the false prophets (they could be called “the profits”). Their sole goal is to promote purity for profit. These are talk-show hosts and pundits who anger the base to hook an audience and sell ad space. Scream louder, get angrier, call people names, and the checks roll in.

Some so-called “think tanks” in Washington, D.C., even create score cards, often contrived and authored by young, unelected people, simply to drive the fundraising effort that pays their salaries. Just look at your recent emails or pleas for cash. It’s not uncommon to read “we are the ones keeping the GOP pure,” or “purge the RINOs.” These profiteers hijacking the tea party label for their own self-interest are neither Republicans nor conservatives, and they certainly don’t represent the best of any wing of our party.

Kinzinger then went on to repeatedly call himself a member of the Tea Party conservative and was proud to have been pushed into office in 2010 as part of that wave election but said that those that are and have been opposed to what Kinzinger, a loyal Boehner yes man since the day he was sworn in, and the GOP establishment have been doing are destroying the Republican Party.

 The truth is, as a conservative Republican myself, the standards espoused by these “profits” often go against our party’s core ideals. I’ve come to believe that being a conservative, according to them, is more about tone and less about actual beliefs. The louder you yell, the more conservative you are.

I’m done pretending this problem doesn’t exist. I’m tired of seeing our party destroyed from the inside. Many would recommend I not even submit this for fear of retribution by the false prophets. However, I’ve spent a little time defending my country as an Air Force pilot, a job I continue to this day in the Air National Guard. If we are going to ask our young men and women to be willing to die for our nation, shouldn’t we be willing to give our careers to do what’s right?

As Jeb Bush’s Illinois co-chair, a staunch supporter of amnesty for illegal immigrants, and Boehner loyalist, Kinzinger has some nerve calling himself a conservative.  And he has no business calling himself a member of the Tea Party.

Yes, in the 2010 campaign Kinzinger ran, and sounded, and promised, that he was a Tea Party conservative, heck he even somehow managed to con Sarah Palin into endorsing him, that he was going to go to Washington and fight Obama, repeal Obamacare in total, cuts the deficits, and the national debt, cut taxes and so on.

Thanks to the Tea Party and a grassroots groundswell across the nation that saw 5 new Republicans headed to Congress and a Republican(granted openly moderate) to the Senate(Mark Kirk).  Adam Kinzinger was among that group that also included firebrand Joe Walsh, Bobby Schilling, and Randy Hultgren.  Immediately after being elected Adam Kinzinger turned his back on the Tea Party and conservatives in Illinois, in his district, and nationally.

As Illinois Tea Party leader Denise Cattoni will say to anyone who will listen, “Adam Kinzinger stabbed us in the back”.  Since then he’s been stabbing us in the eye.

By the 2012 primary every Tea Party group in the redrawn 16th CD and the Tea Party statewide unanimously backed longtime conservative congressman Don Manzullo whom Kinzinger had elected to primary after being drawn out of his 11th district, and chose not to challenge Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. who was known to have been in trouble(Jackson is now serving time for misusing campaign and office funds).

During that campaign Kinzinger used a talk show interview to needlessly attack Zack Oltmanns and his organization Illinois Conservatives because the group had endorsed Manzullo days earlier.

Ever since, as any reader of mine can confirm, Kinzinger has repeatedly attacked the Tea Party and conservatives from using an appearance on ABC’s This Week to attack the Club For Growth, FreedomWorks, and the Heritage Foundation, all in one breath, to continually attacking Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. With Boehner’s ouster Kinzinger has taken to attacking the House Freedom Caucus lead by Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.

Since Kinzinger endorsed Jeb Bush’s presidential ambitions in February, well before Bush even officially announced, he has used every opportunity to go after Donald Trump because Trump yells and screams too much and that apparently hurts little Adam’s sensitive ears.

This is just some of the reason why Mark Levin has said that Adam Kinzinger “Detest the conservative base”.

And Adam wonders why the Tea Party, conservative organizations, bloggers, and talk radio have a problem with him and the GOP establishment.

Might it have something to do with your unwavering desire to give illegal immigrants amnesty.  Or your new found mission to erase from history your previous support of traditional marriage now that you’ve said we have to just accept the Supreme Court rewriting marriage law for all 50 states.  Could it be your defense of the NSA’s bulk data collection of Americans phone records, or the continuation of the crony capitalism of the Export-Import Bank.  Voting to pass every one of the budget or debt deals President Obama worked out with Boehner and McConnell that raised taxes, failed to defund Obamacare, or Planned Parenthood, aren’t accomplishments to be proud of, we call the Fiscal Cliff deal a crapsandwich for a reason, and promising to back Kevin McCarthy for Speaker and Steve Scalise for majority leader is not going to win you any favors.

Of course congressman Kinzinger is feeling emboldened, his stature as the House’s go to spokesperson on all things foreign policy is secure, his appearances on Fox News for softball interviews don’t stop, and he’s pissed that the people he’s been attacking for the last 5 years have won a victory by ousting Boehner and now is launching into a counter offensive.

Kinzinger is probably thinking that if he can look all tough and get all kinds of praise from the likes of Dana Milibanks, for attacking those responsible for getting rid of John Boehner over the next few weeks, that will finally convince Sen. Mark Kirk that it is okay for him to retire or not seek reelection, so he can avoid to embarrassment of getting clobbered by Tammy Duckworth.

Kinzinger just got done saying earlier this week that he’s a leader now in the Republican Party, and its seems to be his mission to drive an even bigger wedge between the GOP establishment and the Tea Party conservative base likely on his way to trying to be a Senator so he can join his good pals John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Try it and you’ll find yourself being thrown out of Washington just like Boehner and Eric Cantor.

Rep.Kinzinger(R-IL): House Freedom Caucus Has Been Hurtful To GOP

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

On Monday morning Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger was on 1440 WROK’s Riley and Scott morning show to talk about the fight within the House Republican caucus over new leadership with the announcement that Speaker John Boehner will be retiring at the end of October. Kinzinger said that the 40 or so Tea Party conservatives who make up the House Freedom Caucus have been hurtful to the Republican Party by bring internal family struggles out into the public.

” the so called Freedom caucus is they have now been willing to go outside of that, lets have a fight in the family and then lets put on a good public front like the Demorats do so well by the way, and now they’re willing to put our fights out in public and I think that’s been pretty hurtful(to the GOP).”

That internal GOP infighting resulted in Boehner being forced out of office and is resulting in the conservative grassroots to demand the same of Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

Kinzinger said that the House Freedom caucus is only a “so-called Freedom caucus” because he’s just as conservative as Louis Gohmert or Jim Jordan or Mo Brooks its just that they differ on tactics.


Kinzinger gets his F rating from Conservative Review for a reason.  Supporting amnesty to the hilt, supporting the corporate welfare of the Export-Import Bank, attacking Matt Drudge for delaying Obamatrade, voting for everyone of Boehner and McConnell’s budget/debt/spending packages, voting to fund Planned Parenthood in the recently passed Continuing Resolution.  That is just a small portion of why Adam Kinzinger has no business ever calling himself a Republican and lets not get into all of Kinzinger’s attacks against Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth, Heritage Foundation, libertarians in general, conservative talk radio and more. Let us also not forget that Kinzinger is the Illinois co-chair for Jeb Bush’s presidential run.

During his interview with WROK Kinzinger also said that he’d back California congressman Kevin McCarthy being made the next Speaker, he is being challenged by Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and Florida Rep. Daniel Webster who is a former Speaker of the Florida House.  Kinzinger also said that he’d back Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise being promoted to majority leader.

“If Kevin McCarthy is elected Speaker then the majority leader post is open and Steve Scalise is who I’ll be supporting, a good conservative from Louisiana he’s currently the whip. He’s actually really good at bringing I think the conservatives and the call them less conservatives together.”

More bull-butter.

Scalise is an establishment Republican whose been doing Boehner’s bidding and if Scalise has gotten conservatives to go along with Boehner and the boys(including Kinzinger’s) plans to surrender and wave the white flag for the Obama agenda no one has noticed.

Indeed since Scalise became whip last year after the primary defeat of majority leader Eric Cantor in Virginia to Tea Party upstart Dave Brat(who has a 100% Conservative Review rating) allowing McCarthy to get promoted the divisions between GOP House leadership and conservatives both in the House and across the country has only gotten worse.  There is a reason why Rep. Mark Meadows attempt to force a no confidence vote against Boehner was gaining traction and was likely to succeed.

Boehner, McCarthy, Scalise and Adam Kinzinger have been sticking a knife right into the eye of conservatives across the country with their refusal to do anything about Planned Parenthood’s butchery of babies, or to make a real attempt at repealing Obamacare, or their insistence of funding executive amnesty. Time and again Boehner, Kinzinger and company have surrender to Obama and his liberal agenda without even contemplating fighting him and that is why the American people want to totally clean house in Congress and throw the bums like Kinzinger out.

Partial transcript:

Kinzinger: The Freedom caucus, I call them the so called Freedom caucus, we’re all as conservative as they are, I just want to be clear about that sometimes they get called The Conservatives, its’ just the tactics differ.

(After explaining procedure for electing Speaker)The fight for Speaker happened as a family, behind closed doors, but then we come out and show a unified front and whats been different with the so called Freedom caucus is they have now been willing to go outside of that, lets have a fight in the family and then lets put on a good public front like the Demorats do so well by the way, and now they’re willing to put our fights out in public and I think that’s been pretty hurtful(to the GOP).

Kinzinger: Conservatives, Talk Radio Whipping Up Anger And Dissent To Raise Money

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

Rep. Adam Kinzinger(R-IL)

In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times Wednesday Illinois Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger said that conservatives(namely Ted Cruz and the House Freedom Caucus) and talk radio were whipping up peoples anger and dissent in Congress and Washington in general to raise money, not to govern.

In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Kinzinger blamed radio talk-show hosts and some conservative, GOP-allied political groups for whipping up anger and dissent to raise money — not to govern.

Kinzinger has been a loyal ally of outgoing Speaker John Boehner and House Republican leadership since he first lied to and used the Tea Party wave of 2010 to get elected.  While Kinzinger has called what Planned Parenthood has done in its baby body parts business Nazi like, he has had no will to defund the nations largest abortion provider of its $500 million in annual taxpayer subsides.

Kinzinger will fight, even if he is really alone, to advance amnesty for illegal immigrants, but he will not fight for the babies being butchered by Planned Parenthood.

In 2013 he wouldn’t fight to defund Obamacare and attacked Ted Cruz when he tried.

The Jeb Bush for President Co-chair in Illinois, along side former Gov. Jim Edgar(what was Pat Brady not available?), also laughably told the Sun-Times that he’s as conservative as anyone:

“I’m probably as conservative as anybody . . . but I understand in a split government the American people demand that we govern, and unfortunately there are people who make money on us not governing,” Kinzinger said.

“I always say this. Give me an avenue to victory, not just an avenue for a fight,” he added.

There is nothing wrong with advancing the conservative agenda “a few yards at a time,”

It is irksome to no end to hear an amnesty supporting, Boehner loyalist, who is actively trying to make his past support of traditional marriage disappear, and has voted for every one of Boehner and McConnell’s budget, tax, debt, and spending deals, call himself a conservative.

When Kinzinger isn’t doing the bidding of the crony corporatist in trying to keep the Export-Import Bank alive, he’s voting to continue funding for President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty.  When he isn’t doing that he’s joining with John McCain and Lindsey Graham to arm the Syrian rebels, who turn around and either join ISIS or Al Qaeda or give them the weapons Kinzinger and company have been lobbying endlessly that they be allowed to have.

But when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood, defunding Obamacare, stopping executive amnesty, Kinzinger says that’s just not how things get done in Washington.

“They say all we have to do is shut down the federal government and the president will be compelled to be on our side,” which is just not how things work.

He rejects arguments by the hard-liners that “if you shut down the federal government over Obamacare or if you shut down the federal government over Planned Parenthood, then you are really fighting . . . and anything short of that is selling out.”

May I remind the young Mr. Kinzinger that because of government shutdowns in the past we have or had things like a balanced budget, work to welfare reform, and the continuation of key military programs under Reagan.

*Update: Illinois conservative activist and Family PAC head Paul Caprio hammered Kinzinger for his remarks to the Sun-Times, from Illinois Review:

“Stop attacking the integrity of the Republican Party base, Congressman. It’s insulting and divisive to grassroots conservatives. This is why so many conservatives are angry with Washington,”

Must Watch: Ted Cruz: Heritage Action Forum(Video)

Sen. Ted Cruz

Sen. Ted Cruz

This weekend Sen. Ted Cruz spoke at the Heritage Action Presidential Forum in South Carolina.  Cruz’s answers to questions about repealing and replacing Obamacare and on the Supreme Court are better than anything anyone said at the debate.

This is a must watch.

Rick Perry: Defending The American Dream Summit 2015(Video)

Rick Perry

Rick Perry

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry spoke Saturday at Americans For Prosperities Defending The American Dream summit in Columbus, Ohio.

I’ll be honest it wasn’t a great speech, and by the end Perry knew it when he said “I’m not a great public speaker”. At times he sounded like a dry college professor talking on National Public Radio, he was at his absolute best when he talked about immigration and border security.  The crowd was very receptive of his effort to put law enforcement on the border during last summer surge of illegal immigrants many children from Central America.

Perry took several shots at Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s defends of his expansion of Medicare under Obamacare.  Kasich has said that he did so to get Ohio’s share of federal spending so that it did not go to other states, and that his expansion has helped the poor and disabled and needy.  Perry wanted to know what this all meant to our children and grand children share of the national debt.

Of Donald Trump Gov. Perry said that if Trump is and would change his views over the years as he campaigns what was to stop him from changing them again if he were President.

Hillary In Iowa: Reaganomics One Of Worst Ideas Of The ’80s

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton

Speaking at the Iowa Democrat Parties Hall of Fame dinner Friday night in Cedar Rapids former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attacked the pro-growth economic policies of President Ronald Reagan as one of the worst ideas of the 1980s saying, “Trickle down economics has to be one of the worst ideas of the 1980s.  It is right up there with New Coke, shoulder pads, and big hair.  I’ve lived through that…and we are not going back to that.”

President Reagan’s policies of deregulation and across the board tax cuts helped spur the greatest economic growth period in the history of the country helping to create some 20 million new jobs during his 8 years in office.  Reagan’s economic policies also saw the Gross Domestic Product(GDP) increase at annual rates at 5 to 8 percent during his presidency with some quarters of GDP growth at or near 10%.  During President Obama’s 7 years of economic malaise he’s been lucky if GDP grows at 1 percent.  There were points during the 1980s under Ronaldus Magnus were one months new job creation has topped whole years for President Obama.

Hillary continued, “We can’t let Republicans take us back like they are trying to do.  We are not going back to trickle down economics or the wild west on Wall Street. We’re not going back to insurance companies charging women more for the same coverage.  We’re not going back to denying climate change.”

During her more than 15 minute speech Clinton attacked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for his collective bargaining reforms which limited the power and influence of unions while enabling the state and local units of government to balance their budgets without having to layoff workers.  She also attacked former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for wanting American workers forced into part-time work due to the policies of President Obama, namely Obamacare, to be able to get full-time jobs saying Republican policies would do just the opposite.

The former Secretary of State for President Obama defended Obama’s Jimmy Carter-esque economic record(the workforce participation rate is as low as it was at the start of Carter’s term in the late ’70s) saying, “Our county has worked so hard to come back from the financial crisis.  With President Obama’s leadership and the determination of the American people we’re standing again.  But we’re not yet running the way America should and now we have to choose whether we’re going to return to the failed top down policies that wrecked our economy before or move forward to chart a stronger, fairer, and more prosperous future.”

Funny, I thought the financial crisis was caused by the top down housing policies of liberal Democrats like Jimmy Carter, Barney Frank, and Hillary’s husband former President Bill Clinton who forced and/or pressured banks and other lenders to lower their standards so that minorities and poor people who had no business buying a house could do so, thus creating the sub-prime loan mess and housing bubble that bust in the last year of President George W. Bush’s tenure.

The truth is the economic polices of Ronald Reagan helped to create the longest and greatest period of economic growth and job creation the nation and the world has ever seen; an entire generation grew up knowing nothing but economic prosperity because Reagan cut taxes across the board and was friendly towards business and innovation.  The dot com boom and the explosion in personal electronics, the rebirth of AM radio, a major expansion in domestic energy production, and those 20+ million new jobs we all made possible because of Reaganonmics.

Stagnation, a decline in household income, the shifting of the work force from full-time to part-time, and the explosion in the number of Americans not working(some 93 million to date) are all a result of the economic policies of Barack Obama.

Hillary repeatedly said she doesn’t want the country to go back to the GREAT economic times of the ’80s, well I don’t want to see the Obama malaise continue for one more day.  For that to happen the next President has to embrace the model given to us by Reagan not the Jimmy Carter on steroids model of Obama and Clinton.

In Congress

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.”

IL18 Special Election: LaHood: GOP Should Tweak, Change And Fix Obamacare

Sen. Darin LaHood

Sen. Darin LaHood

In an interview Tuesday morning on 1230 WJBC in Bloomington Illinois state Sen. Darin LaHood, who is running against Breitbart editor Mike Flynn in the Republican special election primary to replace the disgraced Aaron Schock on July 7th, said that Republicans after the 2016 Presidential election should put forth a plan that would change and fix Obamacare as well as tweak it.

LaHood said, “If we get a Republican President, which I hope we do, there’ll be an opportunity to put forth a plan to change Obamacare and fix it.”

LaHood added, “Listen there are tweaks and there are changes that need to be made” to Obamacare.

Both interviewers pressed LaHood to reject conservative Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare as they’ve voted to do 50 plus times, which the interviewers say were failed efforts, funny every last one of those votes passed the House as I recall, and to stop with Supreme Court legal challenges to President Obama’s signature socialist achievement.  LaHood didn’t entirely play along, but obviously did step into the establishment GOP talking points of fixing Obamacare rather than driving a stake through its heart.

LaHood somewhat redeemed himself when he said, “Obamacare is restricting growth.  Obviously the Supreme Court ruled(King v Burwell) but that doesn’t mean with a new President or a Congress can put forth changes to Obamacare whether that’s repealing it and putting in more market place ideas.”

Memo to GOP congressional candidates Obamacare cannot be fixed, it wasn’t meant to be fixed, it was meant to push this country into a European style centralized and socialized  single payer system of health care rationing.

You can’t fix that, you can only repeal it, and if that doesn’t work, repeal it again, and again, and again until such time as Obamacare is pulled out root and branch.

When SCOTUS Becomes A “Threat To Democracy” The Cure Is Article V And The #LibertyAmendments

Justices of the Supreme Court

Justices of the Supreme Court

In the span of two days the Supreme Court of these United States became a “threat to demomcracy” as the great Justice Antino Scalia wrote in one of his dissents.  In the Courts three rulings King v Burwel upholding Obamacare subsides for the federal exchange, Texas Housing v Inclusive Communities which found that discrimination in housing can happen simply by statistics, and Obergefell v. Hodges which nationalized gay marriage, a serious blow was dealt to the foundations of our nation, our system of government, society itself, and to the Constitution.

In Burwell, Chief Justice John Roberts once again rewrote Obamacare so as to keep the law intact rather than do the right and legally required thing and strike it down, in this case the subsides for the federal exchange, twisting the meaning of words to suit an outcome.

In Texas v Inclusive Communities the Court found that discrimination can now happen by statistical anoymally.  Even  in the abscense of overt, planned/pattern, or documentable evidence of discrimination that disctinction can be so applied just by the appearance of it in statistical analysis.  We all know what Mark Twain said about statistics. This will be used by the progressive left, and the bureacruats Obama has been putting in place at the Department of Housing and Urban Development to force communities to build low-income and government housing for poor and minorities soley to change the ethnic and racial make-up of a community because it doesn’t fit into the master plan of a centralized government planner.

In Hodges, the Court, lead by Justice Anthony Kennedy, bastardized the 14th amendment to nationalize same sex marriage. Making 5 Judges in black robes superior and more knowledgeable than thousands of years of human history, culture, and tradition, not to mention centuries of legal precedent that has defined marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Worse this decision makes the erasure of the 9th and 10th amendments, which on their faces should have made the question of marriage that of the sole juristiction of the seperate states of the union, complete. And forget about the founding precept of Federalism.

The Supreme Court has indeed become a threat to our Democracy and to the Constiution it is sworn to protect and uphold.

Therefore we must use the best tool available to use to fix a broke Court and that is Article V’s Convention of the States process to amend the Constitution.

Over a year ago Mark Levin worte in his best seller The Liberty Amendments that the Convention process needed to be used to place term limits on the Supreme Court(as well as Congress) and that Supreme Court rulings needed to have a veto measure over them.  Levin called for giving Congress and state legislatures each their three-fifths override authority they could enact on Supreme Court rulings within 24 months of their issuance.

In the wake of the rulings Texas Senator and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz has offered an amendment that would create retention elections for Supreme Court Justices as is done in some 20 other states currently.

On the Senate floor Cruz blasted the Courts judicial activism and suggested that if Chief Justice Roberts and others wanted to be legislators they should resign from the bench and run for Congress.

Fellow GOP presidential candidate Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has his own constitutional fix to the Supreme Courts abuse of its power, an amendment affirming marriage as a states issue only.

Any amendment to the Constitution affecting the Supreme Court or its terrible rulings would require three-fourths votes of each chamber of Congress and the ratification of three-fourths of the states, or under the Convention process two-thirds of the state legislatures calling for a Convention with three-fourths of the states required for ratification.

The Supreme Court has greatly stepped outside its bounds and has begun issuing rulings, that are new pieces of legislation(see both rewrites by Roberts of Obamacare) or fundamentally alter historical institutions, like marriage, that owe their origins to the days before we fully established systems of government or codes of law.  This lawlessness and judicial tyranny needs to come to an end.

We have used the amendment process to the Constitution to fix bad Supreme Court rulings in the past; the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments directly undo the Courts Dred Scott decision.  And it is time to do so again.

The Article V Convention applications have already been submitted to Congress by four states(Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Florida) and application resolutions are pending and being debated in state legislatures across the country.

Protesters Outside Rep. Kinzinger’s District Office Want Congress To Stop Exempting Itself From Obamacare

A small group of protesters gathered Wednesday afternoon in downtown Ottawa to protest Congress exempting itself and its members from having to comply with portions of Obamacare.

Some folks from the Rockford area expressed interest in doing the same at Kinzinger’s district office at Rockford’s Bus Station To Nowhere, but I haven’t heard if any did.

Those who protested in Ottawa, part of a national series of protest organized by the Tea Party Patriots of congressional offices across the country, are upset that members of Congress and their staves are able to get subsidized for their insurance, when the law said they should get any subsidy, thanks to a move by President Obama’s Office of Management and Budget that was not stopped or blocked, let alone undone by the Republican controlled Congress.

The Ottawa Times has more:

More than a dozen protesters in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday demonstrated against what they considered special subsidies for members of Congress and their staffers.

In a light mist, they held signs in front of the Central Life Building, 628 Columbus St., where Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, has a district office. The protesters said they would ask the congressman’s office staff to relay their request that he support a bill to end the subsidy.

Some motorists, including a couple of semi-truck drivers, honked in support.

“Why should our tax dollars pay for this? This is not a Democratic or Republican issue. It’s nonpartisan.”

She also said the group wasn’t targeting Kinzinger, who has voted many times to repeal Obamacare.

Tony Sodaro of Ottawa was among the protesters.

“These guys in Congress are elected by us,” he said. “They should go by their own (laws).”

Kinzinger’s office had no immediate comment to the protesters.

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”.

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. Mr. Politician there are companies out there ready and eager to produce once again but until their spirits and ingenious minds are free again…”they’re on strike”.
