Systemic Racism of “Progressives”
By Laurie Higgins   |   05.07.21

Illinois Democrats Seek the Abolition of Sex-Segregated Bathrooms
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.30.21
The compulsory sexual integration of private spaces here in the Land of Degeneracy Lincoln continues apace, aided and abetted by rich men with perverse sexual fetishes, academicians with disordered sexual desires, and unprincipled, ignorant Democrat Lawmakers. Two months ago, I...
Book Banning, Propaganda, and Shaming in Government Schools and Society
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.27.21
While claiming allegiance to “openness,” “diversity,” “inclusivity,” “tolerance,” and “safety,” public schools now ban books, censor ideas, criticize moral and theological beliefs, promote disordered sexuality and anti-white racism, expose students to obscene material, prohibit correct pronoun usage, sexually integrate private...
Illinois Democrats Trying to Give More Power to Bureaucrats During All Health Crises
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.26.21
Leftists here in Illinois have been heeding the opportunistic control freak Rahm Emanuel’s instruction: You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not...
Christians Who Undermine Their Christian Witness
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.23.21
A comment from Tish Harrison Warren writing in and for the increasingly disappointing Christianity Today on Jan. 7, 2021 merits revisiting now that the damage Donald Trump voters predicted if Joe Biden were elected is becoming a reality. Warren wrote,...
Pritzker’s Recommendations for Corrupting All Government Schools
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.22.21
In June 2019, Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an executive order that should have been the proverbial straw that broke the backs of already oppressed conservative families with children remaining in our broken school indoctrination centers. The order had two parts.
A Plea to Exit Public Schools ASAP
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.18.21
While claiming they don’t believe homoerotic attraction is biologically determined, far too many conservatives act as if they do so believe. If conservatives really disbelieved the assertion by leftists that homoerotic attraction is biologically determined, they—that is, conservatives—would be far...
Is This the Worst School Board in Illinois?
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.16.21
Illinoisans have no dearth of reasons to remove their children from our government faux-education camps that are called “schools” in Newspeak. Leftists control teachers’ unions, the Illinois State Board of Education, and the fetid Springfield Swamp from which have emerged...

By Laurie Higgins   |   04.09.21

States With Racist Jim Crow Voter Suppression Laws
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.07.21
I was surprised to learn from the racism sleuths among us that Georgia recently enacted a Jim Crow voter suppression law the likes of which America has never seen. In light of that disturbing revelation, I wondered if there were any other states with such laws and was even more surprised to discover that from sea to shining sea, America is riddled with Jim Crow laws.
Butchering Bodies of Suffering Young People
By Laurie Higgins   |   04.01.21
To be clear from the outset of this article, when I refer to the evil of “trans”-cultism, I am referring to its beliefs and practices—not to people suffering from gender dysphoria or confused by the cultural lies they encounter daily....
Illinois Congressional Rep. Newman’s Dumb Plea for Equality Act
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.30.21
How can someone as foolish and manipulative as U.S. Representative Marie Newman get elected to Congress? Oh, yeah, she ran in Illinois, the land that once gave the nation Abe Lincoln but now saddles the nation with Dick Durbin, Tammy...
Wokeness at Wheaton College
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.25.21
The esteemed evangelical Christian Wheaton College is really woking up. The administration has removed a plaque honoring Wheaton alumni and missionaries Jim Elliot and Ed McCully because it described as “savage” the indigenous Ecuadorian tribe that brutally and without cause...
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Disappoints on “Trans” Law
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.22.21
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has revealed multiple times that she lacks both wisdom and courage when it comes to the issue of cross-sex impersonation. She just vetoed a bill (HB 1217)  that would have required participation in school athletics...

By Laurie Higgins   |   03.18.21
