Conservative PAC Formed in IL-18 Special: ‘We Have Had Enough of The Political Ruling Class’

NORMAL, IL: Conservatives in Illinois’ 18th congressional district are fighting back the political establishment, and its candidate, Obama Secretary Ray LaHood’s son Darin, by promising to produce a conservative alternative for the GOP primary.

Schock, who resigned on Tuesday, will likely be replaced in congress by the Republican who wins the special election primary, tentatively set for June 8 2015.

“We’re forming an organization of donors, business leaders, and citizens that are concerned that our government is out of control,” said McLean County elected board member Mark Johnson. “Today we filed paperwork with the FEC and begin our fight.”

Johnson will lead The Grassroots Speak PAC, joined by Ken Wilber of Wilber and Associates PC, Chris Gramm of Stivers and Gramm LLC, and Ian Bayne, a talk show host on Bloomington’s Cities 92.9 FM talk station.

“We need a candidate who wants to take on Washington, not be Washington,” said Gramm, who has been active in Republican politics in Bloomington and will work closely with Wilber, who will serve as the informal finance director.

“We need fighters who represent us against the excess of government,” added Bayne. “Our freedom is shrinking, our wages are shrinking, our businesses are shrinking, and our government keeps getting bigger. We have had enough of the political ruling class.” Bayne, who has been hosting the morning program on Limbaugh affiliate Cities 92.9, is also a small business owner in real estate valuations.


Does Speaker John Boehner Have the Political Will to Pursue IRS Thug Lois Lerner?

The Department of Justice has refused to charge former IRS chief Lois Lerner on criminal contempt charges after she refused to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee last year. But this doesn’t have to be the end of any possibility of bringing Lerner to justice. IF he has the political will, Speaker John Boehner has options.

With this week’s refusal of the DOJ to charge Lerner, many are mistakenly saying that the whole thing is over. Lerner, they say, will never face justice despite refusing to testify over questions about the IRS targeting of conservative groups that came to light in 2013.

You’ll recall that as soon as Obama came to office the IRS began to use its power to intimidate conservative groups by harassing them with IRS rules and regulations and forcing them to endure an avalanche of requests for information that taxed their abilities to comply as well as forcing them to suffer through numerous audits and scrutiny. Meanwhile liberals groups were given free reign with no IRS attention. This was all obviously an ideologically-based attack on conservative groups meant to stifle them.

Last year, the chairman of the panel, Rep. Darrell Issa (R, CA), insisted that Lerner waived her 5th Amendment right to refuse to testify by making an opening statement to the committee before she claimed her right to remain silent.

Candidates for Woman on the $20 Bill Features Man hater, Mass Murderer and Advocate for Genocide of Blacks

There is a new campaign afoot that is tickling the interests of the mainstream media. It is an effort to kick President Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Sadly at least three of the candidates do not belong on the list. One is a famous hater of men, another can only be termed a mass murderer, and the third was an important supporter of the genocide of African Americans. How is it these three women deserve to be celebrated on the $20 bill is anyone’s guess.

The campaign called Women On The 20, is, the group says on its website, is an effort to “compel historic change by convincing President Obama that NOW is the time to put a woman’s face on our paper currency.”

The group hopes to have the change on the money made by the year 2020, which happens to be the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, the one that gave women the right to vote.

Obama’s EPA Now Wants to Regulate How Long You Shower

It looks like Obama’s EPA is working up to the idea that it should be allowed to say how long you shower. Apparently, if Obama’s EPA has its way, the President’s scolds will be there to harass you if your shower lasts longer than Obama has decreed that you are allowed to.

News broke on Tuesday that the EPA wants to monitor showering in hotels with the eventual eye toward regulating it. It’s just the latest part of the nanny state being built by Emperor Obama who thinks he should be there–EVERYWHERE–to tell you how to live your life.

“The agency,” Free Beacon reported, “is spending $15,000 to create a wireless system that will track how much water a hotel guest uses to get them to ‘modify their behavior.'”

BREAKING: Republican Congressman Aaron Schock Just Resigned Over Illegal Spending

-By Warner Todd Huston

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock just announced that he is resigning because of the mounting troubles over his illicit spending.

Schock was once thought of as an up-and-coming hero for establishment Republicans. But over the last month or so one story after another about his likely illegal spending of tax dollars and campaign cash on personal travel and vacations has finally sunk him. Now Politico reports he has resigned.

The 33-year-old Republican has been dogged by questions about his spending of taxpayer and campaign dollars. On Monday afternoon, POLITICO posed a lengthy set of questions about charging the government and his campaign tens of thousands of dollars in questionable mileage reimbursements.

Today, I am announcing my resignation as a Member of the United States House of Representatives effective March 31,” Schock said in a statement. “I do this with a heavy heart. Serving the people of the 18th District is the highest and greatest honor I have had in my life. I thank them for their faith in electing me and letting me represent their interests in Washington. I have given them my all over the last six years. I have traveled to all corners of the District to meet with the people I’ve been fortunate to be able to call my friends and neighbors.”

“But the constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve and which I have set for myself. I have always sought to do what’s best for my constituents and I thank them for the opportunity to serve,” he said in a statement.

Of course, no Democrat would EVER have resigned over theft of taxpayer’s money, but…. there you have it.

Everyday the media lies to America about what conservatives and the Republican Party want to do with their policy ideas and CNN just uncorked a doosie of a lie about Obamacare.


Above is a screen shot of what appeared on CNN on March 5, 2015.

At noon on Thursday CNN was caught lying claiming that the GOP-led efforts to defeat Obamacare will “end health care for millions.” This is nothing but a blatant, scurrilous lie.

First of all, even Obamacare isn’t even offering anyone any health care. It is offering insurance polices for health care, not health care itself.

Liberals Should Celebrate ISIS as Most Perfect Non-Profit Ever Begun

The left should be celebrating the ISIS terrorists as the perfect example of the sort of non-profit enterprise the virtues of which they constantly extol. In fact, led by the Obviator In Chief in Washington, since leftists are refusing to call ISIS what they are, maybe they are celebrating them after all?

Remember back in 2008 when Michelle Obama said that young people should not be so greedy as to get jobs in corporate America? Instead she instead America’s youngsters should find work at a non-profit. At a speech in Zanesville, Ohio, Michelle urged young people to make the choice “to move out of the money-making industry into the helping industry,” and darn it if ISIS didn’t take up on her challenge.

President Obama even once called his job working for a company as “working for the enemy” because of all that icky money and profits.

City Being Forced to ‘Negotiate’ With Union Despite That No Employees Belong

Here we have yet another example of why unions should never, ever be allowed for government workers. A union that claims to represent police officers in Moriarty, New Mexico, is attempting to force the city to negotiate raises for officers quite despite the fact that the union doesn’t count a single member of the force as a member.

You read that right. A union with no members is claiming that it has the power to force a city to give police officers raises courtesy of the taxpayer.

Back in 2010 the city’s officers did vote to invite a union to represent them but when all was said and done only two officers joined the union. The majority refused. And since 2010 the two officers that did belong to the union have since left the force leaving the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) without even a single member on the force.

Yet, AFSCME is insisting that they have the right to negotiate raises despite not having a single member for which to negotiate.

Illinois’ Slow Start to Fracking Still Faced Stiff Resistance

Hes is my second piece at the Watchdog…

Even as fracking finally came to Illinois, it came at the worst time in the market for oil. This advancement, however, was not made easily. Resistance to the measure was heavy, replete with tough regulations.

In 2013, after then-Governor Pat Quinn signed the bill authorizing fracking, many hoped that the new rules would bring much-needed jobs to a state with one of the worst economies and job climates in the country.

But in recent months the price of oil collapsed, making fracking operations inside the U.S. much less profitable. For Illinois, it has been nearly too late to cash in. Could Illinois have avoided being too late to profit off of fracking?

Things could have gotten off to a better start. The Democrat-led state legislature dragged its feet on regulations and implementation for over a year and a half. By the time regulations were finished, the boom was on the wane….

Gallup Polling Org Rips Obama’s Fake Recovery As Jobless

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jim Clifton, the CEO of the Gallup polling group, recently published a huge slam on Obama’s fake economic recover that he sharply titled, “The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment.” In the piece he exposes something that we conservatives have been talking about for years, namely that Obama’s unemployment figures are nothing but lies and that the low, low labor participation rate proves that we have had no increase in jobs.

His piece starts somewhat absurdly saying that even “the smartest and most educated among us” don’t know that Obama’s unemployment rate reports are “extremely misleading.”

We can quibble with that because conservatives have been pointing this out since two years after Obama came to office. But, still, it’s good that the rest of the “educated” are catching up and finally starting to understand the lies that Obama is selling as an economic recovery.

Anyway, that aside, Clifton notes that the number of jobs has not really increased at all because there are millions who have simply stopped trying to find work and are seemingly permanently jobless. This is the labor participation rate and it is shockingly dismal.

Here is how Clifton put it:

Report: Every Business Started by Al Sharpton Closed for Non-Payment of Taxes

-By Warner Todd Huston

It has been discovered that all the businesses that race-baiter and MSNBC talking head Al Sharpton has started has been closed because of non-payment of taxes.

In the report at National Review by Jillian Kay Melchior, it was revealed that every for-profit company Sharpton has started has been forcibly shut down by one tax jurisdiction or another because he never paid his taxes.

Records show that Sharpton’s beleaguered for-profit entities often overlap and intertwine, some sharing ties with the reverend’s nonprofit organization, National Action Network. Their financial records are copious, confusing, and sometimes outright bizarre, and together, they depict persistent financial woes for Sharpton, who also personally owes New York State nearly $596,000, according to active tax warrants.

“He clearly appears — based on the information that’s available to us — to have a history of noncompliance with tax obligations,” says Bernadette Schopfer, the director of taxation at New York’s Maier Markey & Justic, a certified public-accounting firm that has had no dealings with Sharpton or National Action Network. “It appears that [Sharpton] does not file [taxes for his businesses], and then opens up something else. At all the entities we see he has opened up, he has not been compliant with the obligations of the owner of a business. . . . He’s either willful in his behavior, or he’s just sloppy.”

But it is the same with his personal taxes, too. It is well known that he owes at least $4.5 million in back taxes that he still has not paid nor made any provisions to pay.

Obama AG Nominee Insists Illegals Have a ‘Right To Work’ In The USA

On Wednesday Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite the fact that they are breaking our immigration laws and are essentially criminals in this country.

Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL), Chairman of the Senate Immigration Subcommittee, questioned Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch at the Judiciary hearing to consider her nomination. Sessions asked Lynch about the President’s decision to bypass Congress to order an amnesty, and how this action undermined the rights of disadvantaged American workers.

“The president’s actions,” Sessions said, “would give people who came here unlawfully the right to work, the right to participate in Social Security and Medicare, when Congress has not done that. Allows them to stay for at least a period lawfully. Let me ask you this, in the workplace of American today when we have a high number of unemployed, we’ve had declining wages for many years, we have the lowest percentage of Americans working, who has more right to a job in this country, a lawful immigrant who’s here–a green card holder–or a citizen, or a person who entered the country unlawfully?”

In reply Lynch said that all illegals should be allowed to work in the USA despite our current employment and immigration laws.

It is plain that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie thinks that his path to the White House lies in plying the middle ground between conservatives and moderates and presenting himself as the man who can appeal to all political factions. But, so far at least, it seems he is failing to excite much interest in the idea.

Christie already suffers among conservatives. He is knocked by many on the right side of the political equation for not being conservative enough and Christie understands this criticism all too well. In fact, he felt the need to address this perception during his speech this month at Congressman Steve King’s Freedom Summit in Iowa.

Last weekend the New Jersey Governor told the conservative crowd that he is plenty conservative enough to deserve consideration by even the most conservative voter. Then he laid out his bona fides in an attempt to make his case.

Let’s just say he was received with polite applause but not many minds were changed.

One of the things that the far left always says to excuse lawbreaking illegal immigrants is that they just want to be “like Americans” and attain the American dream just like immigrants to the US always have. This, however, is a lie. Many immigrants no longer have any desire to become Americans and just want our money so they can send it back home.

The old American dream was the promise that a “foreigner” could immigrant to the US, become a citizen, get a job, save their money, and make a life for them and more especially for their children.

For many of these people it was a special mark of pride to learn English and then learn enough about American history and its system of government to pass the citizenship test in order to become an official naturalized American.

This is what Democrats are invoking when they try to excuse lawbreaking illegals today. They claim that immigrants today are exactly the same as those of all our yesteryears.

But even the former president of Mexico is here to disabuse Democrats of this lie.

Illinois’ House Reps Have More Wealth Than Average Member of Their Electorate

(Here is my very first piece over at The Watchdog….)

-By Warner Todd Huston

A recent survey of the wealth of members of Congress revealed that, on average, it would take the combined wealth of 18 American households to equal the wealth of a single member of Congress. While this is an averaged statistic and individual cases vary, a review of the wealth of members of the Illinois delegation to Washington proves the rule rather than the exception.

The January report by OpenSecrets.org found that, “The median net worth of a member of Congress was $1,029,505 in 2013… compared with an average American household’s median net worth of $56,355.”

It is apropos to review what members of Congress are paid as they serve in Washington. Members of the House of Representatives are paid $174,000 a year, a salary that has been frozen in place since 2009. Speakers of the House and majority and minority leaders make a bit more than the average Congressman to befit their higher positions. Members of the House cannot collect a pension until they have served for five years, meaning they’d have to win election three times. Their pensions are never higher than 80 percent of their highest salary and is paid out at retirement age–unless they are still working somewhere in the federal government. In that case, they can’t collect a pension until they are no longer earning a federal salary.

So, what about Illinois? Well, the congressional salary itself certainly puts our representatives in a higher tax bracket than the average citizen of their state. According to information released by the U.S. Census, the median household income of the 13 million some citizens in Illinois is $56,777 annually. That is about 7 percent higher than the national average…

Attny Gen Eric Holder Finally Did Something Right, Halts Local Cops from Using Asset Seizure Laws

Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, has been the single worst AG in American history. His every move has been about politics, not justice, he has abused his position of authority to punish Obama’s political enemies and has forcefully advanced an extremist left-wing agenda. But finally, as he has one foot out the door, Eric Holder has done something right. He’s put an end to local police using federal law to seize property.

The single biggest misdeed perpetrated by police forces across the nation has been the outright theft under color of law of the property of citizens cops claim are suspects in some crime, real or imaginary. This law is entirely un-American as it declares all suspects guilty before a trial is even scheduled.

The civil asset forfeiture program called Equitable Sharing was initially meant as a way to instantly seize the assets and property of drug dealers to prevent them from shifting or hiding drug income from investigators as any arrest wound its way slowly through the criminal justice system.

But, this sweeping power proved to be too much of a temptation for agencies that hungered for money in an era when politicians have been cutting budgets from coast to coast.

Obama’s New Food Czar Wants Gov’t To Decide What You Are Allowed to Eat

Like all extreme socialists, Obama’s new food czar thinks that government should completely control all aspects of food from its production and is dissemination, even to what is allowed to be advertised and what you are allowed to eat.

Recently the Obama’s personal chef, Sam Kass, resigned his position and left the White House. Kass was not just a chef, though. He was also the White House’s senior adviser for nutrition policy. On top of that he the director of Mrs. Obama’s anti-childhood obesity campaign, “Let’s Move.”

So, Obama had several slots to fill at once with his new food czar. So, he and Michelle have picked one Debra Eschmeyer to take on the role of director of “Let’s Move.”

Eschmeyer, who founded the FoodCorps service program that was designed to teach school cafeteria workers about nutrition, calls herself a “food justice activist.” She recently explained what she means by that title.

“I was an editor of [the book] Food Justice so I spent several years thinking about the definition,” she said. “Food justice seeks to ensure that the benefits and risks of where, what, and how food is grown, produced, transported, distributed, accessed, and eaten are shared fairly.”

Every single time some mass shooting or criminal action takes place in the USA the media and Democrats stampede for the TV cameras to blame conservatives for the outrage. So, where are the those blaming liberalism for the murderous terror attack on the left-wing newspaper in France?

I was reminded by my friend Erik that in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 President Bill Clinton and the whole of his lapdog media claimed that the bombing was a result of the “right-wing militia” movement spurred on by evil conservative talk radio and Christianity.

Of course, it turned out that the bombers were loners who were not connected to any group and neither had any connection whatever to any religion, much less Christianity.

Even as late as 2011 The New York Times blamed a massacre perpetrated by a Muslim extremist in Norway on American conservatives and illegitimately linked it to the Oklahoma City bombing.

According to a new investigative article, Al Sharpton has spent years shaking down corporations essentially for protection money supplied to him so that he would avoid calling them “racists,” or setting up boycotts, and creating uncomfortable public relations nightmares.

An extensive piece in the New York Post on Sunday traced Sharpton’s practice of taking money in exchange for his silence. The MSNBC host, the Post said, has taken millions not to attack corporations for their purported racism.

“Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him,” Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal Policy Center (NLPC) told the paper. “Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns.”

Differences Between Civil Rights Movement of 1963 and Today’s Illicit Nonsense is Stark

Comparing the wholly American and sensible demands issued by the real civil rights movement during the event that saw Martin Luther King deliver his “Dream” speech in August of 1963 to the mishmash of self aggrandizing nonsense belched forth by today’s “BlackLivesMatter “movement” reveals a startling difference and exposes today’s protesters to be disjointed, illogical, filled and with race-hate not to mention insensate and childish.

When King mounted the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in that great American moment to begin to change forever how Americans treated its black citizens he didn’t do so alone. He stepped out to give his soaring “I Have a Dream” speech backed by hundreds of key members of the burgeoning civil rights movement, organizers who themselves were backed by hundreds of thousands of Americans, black and white, spread all across the country.

Before that great rally in Washington in 1963, the civil rights movement had already coalesced into a concerted effort replete with demands that they hoped would bring relief to millions of Americans yearning to be as free as the rest of the country.

So, you thought the Lord God Obama had given you some “free” healthcare, did you? You’ve happily applied for and used his subsidies all last year because that clunky, constantly crashing Obamacare website said you could, eh? Well, guess what? Come April 15 you’ll probably owe a whopping new tax bill to the IRS because, as it turns out, you didn’t really deserve the subsidy you got. Sucks, doesn’t it?

The government reports that nearly 7 million Americans took advantage of the subsidies they were offered on the Obamacare exchange websites, subsidies that helped them cut down on the costs of the newly mandated Obamacare healthcare policies.

But now, according to tax preparation company H&R Block, as many as 4 million subsidy users might discover that in fact they made too much money to have been allowed to get the subsidy and at tax time the IRS will demand that they pay the money back.

Government Workers Should NEVER Be Allowed a Union

What are the best jobs on average in California? Apparently being a government worker. Infuriatingly, government workers live far better, have higher salaries, retire earlier and have better benefits than most in the private sector even though, like leeches, these same government workers live off the taxpayer.

The worst of all worlds for the taxpayer is a government union. Government unions do nothing whatever for the very people paying the bills. They do not improve services, they don’t professionalize workers, and they wildly grow the waste of tax dollars. Worse, government unions give public servants higher salaries, richer benefits, and earlier retirement dates than the taxpayers footing the bills.

Even the patron Saint of the liberal left, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, was adamant that government workers should never be allowed to unionize. FDR thought it was “unthinkable and intolerable” to have a government workers union.

It’s for good reason, too. Government workers do not create the profits that might help enrich benefits. Whenever government unions get raises it simply means that taxpayers have to pay more to make up the difference.

Boehner and GOP Allowed Obama to Add thousands of New Amnesty Workers With That 2015 Budget

December 26, 2014 | Filed Under Amnesty, Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Budget, Congress, Conservatives, Democrats/Leftists, Entitlements, Ethics, GOP, Government, Government Corruption, Immigration/Immigrants, Jobs, John Boehner, Liberals, President, Progressives, Republicans, Senate, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

This is why I despise government. Every decision made in DC adds thousands of new government placemen at a cost of millions in salary and an ever expanding government. That is what happened when John Boehner did not immediately put a stop to Obama’s amnesty plans in that recently concluded budget negotiations.

One of the things that Barack Obama kicked into high gear with his illicit amnesty announcement was a government employee hiring frenzy. As The New York Times reports, as soon as GOP House Speaker John Boehner allowed Obama’s amnesty plan to keep its funding, 1,000 new federal jobs were opened up at a cost to the taxpayer of $40 million annually in salaries and benefits.

These new employees will be housed in a building in the DC environs (Crystal City, just across the river in Arlington, Virginia) that will cost taxpayers an additional $8 million in rent each year.

Time to Pressure the Corporations That Donate to Cop-Murdering Al Sharpton’s National Action Network

December 22, 2014 | Filed Under Al Sharpton, Anti-Americanism, Business, Capitalism, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Government, Government Corruption, Journalism, Liberals, Media Bias, MSNBC, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

Al Sharpton is able to fly around the country advocating for violent protests and the murder of cops because many of the nation’s top corporations have fallen for his shakedown efforts and give him millions to fund his activities. It is time to pressure these corporations to stop finding this charlatan’s efforts.

Did you know that Walmart gives Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) millions every year? So does beer giant Anheuser-Busch. And so do Macy’s and drug company Pfizer. And it’s time they all stop doing so.

These companies have all been afraid of seeming like “racists” for any refusal to donate millions to NAN, but now that Sharpton has become a part of the murder of several cops, isn’t it time that these same corporations fear being linked to a pusher of violence?

A recent article in The New York Post listed a series of large national companies that donate money to Sharpton’s NAN.
