    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...

    Wow- More insanity from the American left. On Friday eight ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 132 people in Paris. At least one of the Islamists posed as a refugee to enter Europe - in October. 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:

    [picture of Robert Creamer] Looks like the Marxist architect of Obamacare also had a major say in putting forth the Iran Deal. Robert Creamer was convicted in 2005 for tax violations and bank fraud. He served time and was under house arrest. While in prison, he crafted the core underpinnings of Obamacare. Creamer is a political consultant who is very close to Barack Obama and is married to Jan Schakowsky, the Marxist Congresswoman from Illinois. While on the inside, he wrote, Listen to Your Mother: Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win. Obamacare was only the first major step in...

    Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) was forced to apologize on Tuesday, after attacking a political opponent for being an "Orthodox Jew" at a radical leftist J Street conference. 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.

    Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.) said she was “unaware” that the preventive services regulation that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued under the Obamacare law requires health care plans to offer free sterilizations to girls as young as their teens. 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

    Crain’s Chicago Business reports that Alvin Boutte, Jr., the adviser who encouraged the state to invest in Democrats’ beloved ShoreBank as it was failing, has agreed to pay a fine, to have his securities license suspended, and to work under “heightened supervision” in the securities industry for the next year. 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...

    This morning, Rep. Jan Schakowsky appeared on the Don Wade and Roma show on WLS-AM Chicago to comment on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. Schakowsky praised the president’s green energy initiatives, claiming that the (recalled) Chevy Volt “is doing pretty well” and defending Obama’s failed investment in Solyndra. 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...

    (The Hill) — Opponents of President Obama’s healthcare law are going to take their “best shot” at destroying it this year, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius warned Thursday. Sebelius, along with Reps. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), rallied a crowd of healthcare advocates to fight for President Obama and his signature domestic program. “Over the next few months we’ll see the biggest barrage of attacks and misinformation about the law we’ve ever seen, and that’s hard to do — increase the misinformation,” Sebelius said at a conference sponsored by the healthcare advocacy group Families USA. “The...

Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) is comparing Republicans who voted to subpoena the White House for Solyndra documents to critics of President Obama who allege he wasn’t born in the United States. Schakowsky was among a parade of Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats who slammed the subpoena vote Thursday, calling it a political attack that ignores White House efforts to work with the committee on its request for documents. “I doubt that anything the White House would have agreed to yesterday would have been sufficient....

Teenager Tyler Hinsley, at the GOP presidential candidate debate in California, asked, “Of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think I deserve to keep?” Co-host Don Wade asked Schakowsky to answer the same question. After delaying for as long as she could, she finally answered. “I’ll put it this way, you don’t deserve to keep all of it. It’s not a question of deserving, because what...
