Chicago preparing for business as usual, post-Patrick Fitzgerald?
Could be, could be: “The White House is expected to name a new U.S. attorney for Chicago soon from among four finalists. Whoever it is will be an insider compared to the man he or she will replace, Patrick Fitzgerald.” Basically, Fitzgerald is leaving the position after over ten years of putting governors (note plural) and other corrupt Illinois state officials (yes, I know, redundant) | Read More »

No Pale Pastels: A Lesson From Ronald Reagan Lost On The IL GOP
“What does the Illinois GOP stand for?” -Illinois Tea Party coordinator Denise Cattoni In his 1975 speech to CPAC Ronald Reagan said that, “Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we | Read More »
Update on IL-02: Democrats starting up their internecine primary war.
Do you know what the most terrifying thing is about this Politico article (“Blacks fret free-for-all for Jesse Jackson Jr. seat*”)? It’s the very last paragraph: “There’s going to be a lot of people running no matter what,” [soon-to-be former Democratic Congresswoman Debbie] Halvorson said. “This is the chance of a lifetime. Open seats don’t come along very often.” ‘Open seats don’t come along very | Read More »
Walsh vs Duckworth=Reagan vs Communism
Joe Walsh is a true conservative, one with backbone and integrity, who will never compromise the Constitution or his principles. He reminds us of Ronald Reagan who was the same kind of man. The one thing Joe doesn’t do well is spin a tale–as in Tammy’s case–a fairy tale of “what you’ll get if you vote for me.” He’s not about handouts–but rather about saving the country and that includes the 8th district in Illinois

Ms. Duckworth can best be described as a controversial ultra-liberal, tax and spend Progressive heavily funded by out-of-state special interests and the Chicago machine. Congressman Walsh has been described as a ‘controversial Tea Party-backed freshman’ who has been particularly vocal in urging Congress to reduce spending and cut taxes. One might say that for the 8th district, Tammy is John Kerry and Joe Walsh is Reagan. I’ll vote for Reagan–and Joe Walsh every time.
Joe Walsh For Congress
Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) is the real deal. He is a true conservative of principle. And he will not back down. He not just votes right on these issues, as a freshman member of Congress he has led on numerous Conservative priorities including leading our balanced Budget Amendment fight. Yes there are other Conservative Members like Joe who fight the good fight, and fortunately for | Read More »

Here is the map. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Illinois2010.png A relatively unknown Republican from Bloomington running with a 28 year old running mate won all but four counties and lost by fewer than 35,000 votes. Since then Democrat Governor Quinn has presided over tax increases, pension problems, union layoffs, and there has been a Chicago teachers strike. Northern Illinois knows that Wisconsin is doing much better under the leadership | Read More »
More Evidence that Illinois will go Red for Romney
I predict Romney will win big downstate and in the Chicago suburbs. Chicago itself will go fishing. The Illinois economic basket case will ALL be blamed (and rightfully so) on the Democrats. President Popinjay will lose Illinois. Watch for Obama to start campaigning in Illinois. Romney/Ryan should spend one day in northern Illinois sweep through by bus and stop in North Chicago (Abbott Labs), Skokie | Read More »
37 Days to Election Day: Illinois
The political news out of Illinois will be in the House races and the news, quite frankly, is not good for the Republican Party. First, this is Obama’s home base and there is no doubt that he will win the state’s 20 electoral votes. As if that is not bad enough, Democrats controlled the redistricting process which was complicated by the fact that the state | Read More »

Who is Karen Lewis?
Karen Lewis is head of the powerful Chicago Teachers Union, currently striking against the Chicago Public School system. The strike is actually a power play for Lewis, who wants both to control how teachers are evaluated in Chicago and to extend her power in union circles — and probably in political circles, as well.
On that potentially troublesome Cook County poll.
The Daily Caller reported on a poll today that gave a rather remarkable result: it showed Barack Obama ahead of Mitt Romney 49 to 37… in Cook County, Illinois: which of course includes the City of Chicago. Being under 50% in what can be considered the ultimate Democratic stronghold is not good news for the President. In 2008 Cook County went for Obama over McCain | Read More »
