    RUSH: We have an entire half of the political system in meltdown over the fact that Donald Trump won this election and that their candidate lost it. We have Obama and his farewell address last night, which went longer than George Washington’s, Ronald Reagan’s, and Harry Truman’s combined. He mentioned himself 75 times, and it was pathetic. And do you know who was in the front row of that speech last night standing up with applause every now and then? Remember the name Robert Creamer? You’ve forgotten already? Robert Creamer is the husband of Jan Schakowsky. Robert Creamer was exposed...

    U.S. Rep. Schakowsky: GOP might use waterboarding to punish for livestreaming Wednesday, January 04, 2017 WASHINGTON - Illinois Democrats in the U.S. Congress hold the majority over Republicans in the state's delegation 11 to 7, but overall in Congress, Democrats are vastly outnumbered. Tuesday, one Democrat staged a protest when the GOP leadership pushed an effort to ban livestreaming from the House floor. In defiance, Congress member Jan Schakowsky (D-9) livestreamed, saying that the Republicans might set into place "terrible punishments" for livestreaming, including waterboarding:

    Robert Creamer, founder and partner of Democracy Partners, the group behind the organized violence at Trump rallies, as shown in the video by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, is no ordinary agitator. Creamer, a convicted felon, is arguably the spiritual godfather of ObamaCare and much of the current progressive left agenda. Creamer, along with his wife, Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky is no stranger to agitation, violence, and expanding the progressive agenda. As Investor’s Business Daily pointed out in March 5, 2010 editorial regarding protests against House Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski over the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988,...

    Wednesday, October 19, 2016 GOP opponent calls for Schakowsky's resignation in light of undercover videos CHICAGO - Standing in front of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's Chicago office Wednesday, GOP challenger Joan McCarthy Lasonde called for the six-term Democrat to resign after undercover videos appeared to reveal Schakowsky's husband Robert Creamer's shady political activism. "Schakowsky almost certainly participated in those activities, and at a minimum, she must have known about them. And she could have stopped them. This is a sickening and terrifying abuse of power," Lasonde told reporters. Lasonde said Creamer's activities included hiring mentally ill and homeless people to provoke...

    Every time Democratic U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky mentions "Republicans" and "scandal" and "accountability," she'll be sticking her husband's foot in her mouth. The foot I'm talking about belongs to her spousal unit, Robert Creamer, the noted champion of the poor and the downtrodden and Democratic political organizer. Creamer's judge was U.S. District Court Judge James Moran, the former Democratic state legislator from Evanston. Moran's son-in-law is Democratic political consultant Peter Giangreco, who has worked politics with Creamer and Schakowsky and had a seat on the board of one of Creamer's many organizations. Judge Moran says he thought about recusing himself...

The Islamic terrorists gutted their victims on the floor of the Bataclan concert hall. Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky from Illinois told SiriuxXM radio that the Paris terrorist attacks last week were a "chilling reminder" that the U.S. needs more restrictive gun laws. France has some of the strictest gun laws in the West. Only terrorists and criminals are packing heat. Via News Alert:

At the conference, Schakowsky negatively painted Joel Pollak, her opponent in 2010 elections, by highlighting the fact that he is a religious Jew - a choice of words that the crowd responded to by booing Pollak. In her comments, she criticized Pollak for being a "Jewish, Orthodox, Tea Party Republican." The remarks can be seen in the following video, with the specific reference to Pollak starting at 52 seconds in.

However, back in March, Schakowsky did acknowledge that the mandate offers sterilizations free of charge to college-age women, stressing that the HHS rules were designed to “protect the health of women, women of all ages.” The HHS regulation, which takes effect on Aug. 1, requires nearly all health care plans in the United States to provide, without

The ShoreBank scandal erupted in 2010 as Chicago Democrats, particularly Rep. Jan Schakowsky, tried to bail out the bank using any means necessary–whether federal, state, or private money. The bank’s closure was delayed several times–evidence, critics charged, of preferential treatment from the Obama administration. Eventually, under pressure from the Tea...

When the hosts asked her to defend President Obama’s decision to block the development of the Keystone pipeline, Schakowsky did not dispute that the project would create jobs, but denied that these jobs were significant: "Twenty thousand jobs is really not that many jobs and investing in green technologies...

It wasn't the first time Schakowsky alluded to my Orthodoxy: she did it in a July fundraising letter, and hinted at it again at an Israel forum we addressed in October, which she has since described as an "enemy camp." In some contexts, there is nothing wrong with referring to someone's religion. I have occasionally drawn attention to my Orthodox Jewish faith, usually to explain where my values come...

It was during this time that Adam Sharp took the chance to ask her where in the Constitution does it give Congress the authority to force Americans to purchase health insurance. The Congresswoman clearly was not ready for that question. At first she tried to shrug the question off and her aide attempted to pull her away. Then she decided to take a stab at it....

Schakowsky was recruited to help with the famous Chicago Grape Boycott by a young United Farm Workers union leader named Eliseo Medina. A lifelong socialist, Medina is today executive vice president...

    WASHINGTON - At a time when both political parties are worrying about the federal deficit, an unexpected and unorthodox proposal is coming back from the shadows of last year's health-care debate the "public option." The idea of creating a major government health insurance program was roundly rejected last year, but the 128 House Democrats pushing to reconsider the idea are now advancing the argument that it would help hold down federal spending. Their bill, which faces long odds, would allow Americans who do not get insurance at work to choose a government plan for their health coverage starting in 2014....

    Alan Dershowitz, the long time Professor of Law at Harvard University, and a self-avowed liberal Democrat, took his time before he found a Republican he considered worth supporting -- just under 72 years to be exact. But on Wednesday in Chicago, Dershowitz endorsed his former law student, Joel Pollak, the Republican candidate for Congress in Illinois' 9th district. Dershowitz, who has taught U.S. Senators, Governors, and Congressmen, described Pollak as the single most promising political talent he has ever met. Dershowitz has for many years, been a passionate and dedicated supporter of Israel, and he has fought the growing sentiment...

    Scandal: Sometimes banks are too small to fail, such as when they are in the president's hometown, deal with the president's friends and serve the president's agenda. Or should we perhaps say too connected to fail? ShoreBank's Web site boasts: "Van Jones saves at ShoreBank so his money fights for green jobs just like he does." It proudly notes, "According to former Vice President Al Gore, 'Van Jones demonstrates conclusively that the best solutions for the survivability of our planet are also the best solutions for everyday Americans.' " That may tell us all we need to know about ShoreBank...
  • Rep. Schakowsky and ShoreBank: New Evidence of Conflict of Interest (IL -yep, her crook husband)

    I have found evidence that may explain the intense interest of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) in bailing out ShoreBank, the “community development” bank that has received extraordinary assistance from her and several other “friends in high places.” The New York Times confirms that Rep. Schakowsky played a leading role in the ShoreBank bailout. Yet ShoreBank is not based in Rep. Schakowsky’s congressional district, and she did not help the Bank of Lincolnwood–which is in her district, and failed in 2009–or Park National Bank, which was also active in community development in Chicago until it was closed by federal regulators last...

    ust when officials at the politically connected community lender ShoreBank thought they were rescued from near-certain failure by a consortium of Wall Street firms, a top Republican lawmaker is investigating why the firms were so generous with their money, FOX Business has learned. Spencer Bachus, the ranking Republican on the House Financial Services Committee, wrote President Obama this morning asking for "all records of communication - including emails, phone logs and meeting records- related to the ShoreBank negotiations that exist between the Administration and representatives of ShoreBank, and executives of the banks involved in the bailout."

  • Reform Repeal Is Just Child's Play

    Repeal: Some say trying to repeal ObamaCare is a futile dream once people get used to its benefits, such as covering kids with pre-existing conditions. Once before, government was slapped down. It can be done. Entitlements can be addictive, and it's certainly the purpose of this administration to make as many Americans as possible as dependent on government as possible. That's partly why a health care bill put student loans under the Department of Education. The government needed the revenues, but it also needed the power over yet another class of citizens. Unlike Medicare and Social Security, this nationalization of...

    Question: Is it possible to defeat the vile Jan Schakowsky (wife of a felon) in the 9th Congressional race here in Chicago? One of our must-reads every day is Atlas Shrugs and the wildly entertaining Pamela Geller, who today endorsed Joel Pollak for the 9th Congressional race here in Chicago, where Pollak plans on taking down one of the most vile and corrupt members of the House, Jan Schakowsky (the wife of convicted felon Robert Creamer, who wrote Dr. Utopia’s Healthcare Rationing strategy while in prison for bank fraud and check kiting). Schakowsky is truly one of the worst human...

    If Rep. Jan Schakowsky hoped to use Monday night's town hall meeting as a pep rally for the "public option," she failed. It wasn't for lack of trying. Her staff arrived more than three hours before the event, with boxes of literature and a marked-up version of H.R. 3200 for their boss to use as a prop during the meeting. The HCAN crowd arrived soon afterwards with their manufactured signs and rolls of stickers. As the line grew outside the high school, HCAN organizers began handing out signs to sneak into the auditorium, and instructing supporters to block opposing views...
