Freshman U.S. Representative Mary Miller Bullied by Deceitful Leftists and Abandoned by Cowardly Republicans
By Laurie Higgins | 01.08.21Another tempest is brewing in the Land of the Lost, formerly known as the Land of Lincoln. It all began when, in a speech to Moms for America, newly elected U.S. Representative Mary Miller quoted Hitler’s infamous assertion from Mein Kampf about the indoctrination of children. Miller said,
"If we win a few elections, we’re still going to be losing unless we win the hearts and minds of our children. This is the battle. Hitler was right on one thing. He said, 'Whoever has the youth has the future.'”
The political world came unhinged.

By Christine Misner | 12.22.20Many government officials and progressives in Illinois like to tout the state as being a leader in championing the women’s rights. In April 2020, a report in the Chicago Tribune showed a shocking backlog of rape kits waiting to be tested by the Illinois State Police. Women across the state have suffered for years while waiting for the DNA of their attackers to be tested in hopes of having their cases solved and their violators brought to justice. Since that report brought the problem to the public’s attention, the ISP has made progress, but there are many kits still to be tested with more rape crimes adding to that number.
12.08.20As we look back at the results from this past election season, we ponder what could have been improved if there were better elected officials in Washington D.C. and in Springfield. The media constantly draws our attention to the national political scene. Yet, it was Tip O’Neill who stated, “All politics is local.” When was the last time you voted in your local election? If you do vote, how much research do you do to determine the best candidates?
By Laurie Higgins | 11.15.20Conservative parents with kids in Illinois public schools, WAKE UP! Leftists on the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and in Springfield aren’t anywhere near done with their indoctrination mandates. A new amendment to Illinois State Board of Education teacher...

By Christine Misner | 10.21.20Nearly a month after calling Christians to the nation’s capital for a prayer march, Franklin Graham is calling on them again, this time to join him for a day of prayer and fasting. The IFI board of directors and staff will heed this call, and we intentionally fast and pray for our state and nation this Sunday.
By Christine Misner | 09.23.20As Election Day November 3 nears tensions in the country continue to run high. The candidates, parties, and voters are expressing worry over mail-in balloting which is being promoted over in-person voting due to the recent pandemic. In the midst of this unease, the Illinois Conservative Union (ICU), along with Judicial Watch, have filed suit against the Illinois State Board of Elections (ISBE).
By Laurie Higgins | 08.04.20Before you read this, you might want to have a fire extinguisher at the ready, because this news just may light your hair on fire. State Representative La Shawn K. Ford (D-Chicago) held a press conference on Sunday in which he called for all Illinois schools to cease teaching history because he’s “Concerned that current school history teaching leads to white privilege and a racist society.” In a press release titled in part “Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools,” Ford proclaimed from his high horse,...

07.07.20Late last week, Illinois Circuit Court Judge Michael McHaney of Clay County ruled in a lawsuit that “all citizens of Illinois” are free from Governor JB Pritzker's tyrannical orders. This comes after arguably unethical tactics by the Illinois Attorney General to delay the case by trying to remove it to federal court, and the United States Department of Justice filing a Statement of Interest in the case in support of Bailey’s lawsuit.
By David E. Smith | 06.17.20The process for registering is easy and convenient, but unfortunately, millions of Americans choose not to take the time. Millions of Americans are not registered to vote. Add to that the fact that Barna Research reports that in the last two presidential elections, voter-turnout among self-professing Christians was only 59 percent in 2012 and 61 percent in 2016.
05.21.20The Illinois Constitution grants neither the governor or the IDPH the power to suspend the Bill of Rights in the Illinois constitution. The Illinois Constitution grants neither the governor or IDPH any emergency powers to deny us our constitutionally protected rights. The governor has no lawful authority aside from what is granted by the Illinois State Constitution.
