    President Donald Trump’s former minions just don’t get it. Most Americans don’t want to ever see or hear from them again. We wish they would just go somewhere and hide. But for some reason, likely because they need the money and crave the limelight as much as the egomaniac they used to work for, these societal outcasts keep trying to force themselves on us. Take former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, for example. He didn’t have the decency to turn down an invitation by administrators at Northeastern Illinois University to participate in a recent panel discussion on campus about...

    The fourth-grader was playing basketball in November 2015 when prosecutors say he was lured away from a playground with a juice box, then shot at close range in an alley. In the second day of the murder trial for two men accused of shooting a 9-year-old boy point-blank in a Chicago alley in 2015, family of the young boy and multiple law enforcement officers took the stand. Tyshawn Lee's grandmother was the first to testify, saying her grandson's last words to her were that he loved her. "I wanted to go across the yellow line but police said no. I...

    South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg weighed in Wednesday on the fetal remains found on a former abortion doctor’s property. The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate spoke to reporters about the 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains family members found on former Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s property in Illinois after he died on Sept. 3. “I find that news out of Illinois extremely disturbing and I think it’s important that that be fully investigated,” Buttigieg said, according to a video from WSBT reporter Max Lewis. Klopfer ran clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend, Indiana. “I also hope that it doesn’t get...

    Illinois clearly is the pioneer in the not yet existent deceased rights movement, which I have heard is having trouble with turnout for its rallies.  But if the dead ever do rise from their graves in a zombie apocalypse, as so often dramatized on cable television, they will no doubt demand that other states follow the lead of  Illinois. They're not dead, they're a constituency: Illinois Policy reveals that the state has spent $4.6 million on Medicaid for dead people: An audit by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Office of Inspector General, or OIG, found Illinois spent $4.6 million on Medicaid...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind.-- Thousands of fetal remains were found at the home of a former South Bend abortion doctor, WSBT reports. The remains were discovered while family members were searching through the home of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who passed away on Sept. 3. His home is in Will County, Illinois. WSBT reports Kloper used to practice at the Women's Pavilion in South Bend. His medical license was suspended in 2015 after he was accused of failing to report an abortion on a 13-year-old girl.

    Uber Technologies plans to hire 2,000 employees over the next three years who will help grow the headquarters for Uber Freight in The Old Post Office. The company last month signed a 10-year lease for 463,000 square feet in the massive, long-vacant building. Uber’s space will serve as a headquarters for the tech giant’s freight service, which connects truck drivers with shippers. The new Chicago office also will serve as Freight’s first engineering hub outside of San Francisco. “Chicago is going to be one of the important cities for Uber,” said CEO Dara Khosrowshahi. “This is a big bet that...
  • Group aims to stop Illinois from becoming the "abortion capital of the Midwest"

    It hasn't been a good year for anti-abortion activists in Illinois. While other states across the Midwest and South were busy passing abortion bans this spring, Illinois went the other direction. Over Memorial Day weekend, lawmakers in Springfield passed the "Reproductive Health Act," a more than 100-page piece of legislation that expands access to abortion and codifies the procedure into law as a "fundamental right." When Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the legislation on June 12, he said the abortion protections in the law made the state a "national leader in protecting reproductive rights." Not everyone is happy about that....
  • Why Illinois can't balance its budget

    Daily Herald ^ | 6/20/2019 | Austin Berg
    Republicans and Democrats sang the same song at the Statehouse after rapidly passing the largest budget in state history: "It's balanced." Unfortunately, watchdogs couldn't offer much dissent in the moment. Lawmakers passed the 1,581-page document over the course of one weekend. In the absence of independent analysis, which takes more than a couple days to complete on a $40 billion spending plan, political rhetoric was rampant. It was all eerily familiar. In 2018, state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle claimed they had balanced the budget. But Illinois Policy Institute analysis had it out of whack by up to...

    UNBELIEVABLE! Illinois authorities demand that private homeowner remove small 9/11 Memorial plaque, saying it is “obsolete” SEPTEMBER 8, 2019 BY BARENAKEDISLAM If they don’t remove it within 14 days, they will keep getting fines of up to $500.00. So, I guess for America-hating leftists, remembering 3,000 Americans who were murdered by Muslims has now become obsolete?

    They were friends and family from the old neighborhood gathered to celebrate the passing of one of their own. An argument broke out. Police say a woman chased down her boyfriend and fired a small pink gun, missing him but hitting another man talking on the corner. The errant bullet killed Andrew Owens, an aspiring model who loved his family, traveling and dancing and could devour plates of food without gaining a pound. "Prior to all this, we were all friends," lamented one of his cousins. The woman had a license to carry a concealed gun. Over the next several...

    Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders enlisted the services of far-left activist Linda Sarsour to campaign for him this week as he seeks the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders tweeted Sarsour’s remarks in a video that went viral Friday night and Saturday morning. Sarsour has come under fire for her harsh criticism of Israel, defense of Sharia Law, and refusal to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She has also been accused by Jewish organizations of holding anti-Semitic views.

    The proof is in the pudding, as they say. In other words, if you want to see the "competency" and "efficiency" of leftists at work, look to Illinois. Among a myriad of state-wide problems created by leftist ideology, a new report from the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General uncovered that Illinois spent at least $4.6 million between 2015 and 2017 on people who are already dead.Those uninitiated in the utter lack of competency among leftists may wonder how this could ever happen. How does the state spend money on dead people? Well, ABC 20 out...

    Over the Labor Day weekend, Seth Aaron Ator shot and killed seven people. He wounded more than 20 others in his senseless rampage. Police killed him during his attack. Ator was a man marked with mental illness. As they searched his home, police noted that this man was on a downward spiral, which apparently culminated when he was fired from his job the day he committed his heinous crime. As the anti-gun Left mobilized again, many questions remained. How did Ator get a rifle? He failed a previous background check via mental health adjudication. Well, it seems Ator obtained his firearms...
