Four B’s and an R (Gas Tax)

By:  Diane Benjamin Dan Brady, Bill Brady, Jason Barickman, Tom Bennett, and Chapin Rose I bet the gas prices are killing your budget.  Lawmakers never understand you have to cut your budget in other places to pay their tax increases.  You have less money to spend, therefore tax revenue, like sales tax, will decrease.  You […]

The News Thinks Dan Brady is Wrong

By:  Diane Benjamin I reported in May Dan Brady voted YES on HB 2040 – the bill (now signed into law)  bans private immigration detention centers.    https://blnnews.com/2019/05/11/dan-brady-isu-local-democrats-more-slbb-and-pay-to-play/ I asked him why he voted YES, he told me it would’t affect the Dwight location.  It sounds like Dan is the only person who believes that, the […]

Bill Mitchell’s Funding

By:  Diane Benjamin Mitchell is my representative and one of the guys who defected from the Republican Party to raise your taxes.  I wonder if he knew that bill also raises gas taxes .05 a gallon?  I doubt it since nobody had time to read the bill.  More surprises may surface. Today I got a […]

Status Quo Ante

By: Erick Erickson Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors. Republicans […]

What’s the Future of the TEA Party?

CSteven Tucker 4:16pm Nov 5 I have had reporters and other individuals ask me: “Steve, what is the future of the Tea Party movement if Mitt Romney wins?” Here is my response: The core focus of the Tea Party movement will be ridding the Republican party of the “Progressive” a.k.a. Statist poison that has infiltrated […]

“Why is the Tea Party destroying the Republican Party?”

By JOE SCARBOROUGH | 10/21/12 12:57 PM EDT http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82677.html That’s a leading question that I have been asked repeatedly from media pundits and Democratic politicians over the past three years. Over that time, Democratic politicians and media pundits have almost universally accused the Tea Party of bringing ruin to the Grand Old Party. According to this skewed […]

Adam Kinzinger and Jesse Jackson Jr.

by Diane Benjamin Adam Kinzinger had to decide what district to run in after Democratic redistricting.  He should have been paired against Jesse Jackson Jr, but he took the easy route and challenged a fellow Republican in the March primary.  EVERY conservative group in the state supported Don Manzullo because of Kinzinger’s less than conservative voting record. […]

Report from an Illinois delegate at the RNC

Hello friends,   I find this situation to be very troubling to me.  As you may know, Ron Paul had won sufficient delegates in at least five states to earn him a speaking slot at the convention. Through the legerdemain (perhaps more appropriately, strong arm tactics) of the RNC, many of those delegates were stripped, leaving Paul […]

Congratulations Democrats!

by Diane Benjamin You are now SLAVES to the public sector unions in Illinois. How does it feel to be bought and paid for? You can’t fund pensions and you can’t change benefits – the union leaders will call out their thugs.  The phones in Springfield will overload when the union heads tell their people […]

Closeted Gay Elected Officials

by Diane Benjamin Let’s get one thing straight:  This post has nothing to do with whether being gay is right or wrong.  It’s about Integrity. If you pay any attention at all to politics, you know that several state and national Illinois GOP elected officials are suspected of being “in the closet”.  It has now […]

Life after #ObamaCare

Update:  Taxes next year are going to skyrocket!  If you don’t believe yet that the TEA Party is your ONLY hope to preserve Liberty and Freedom in America – welcome to socialist America. The mandate under the commerce clause was ruled unconstitutional, but Congress has the RIGHT to tax – even though it was never […]
