SPRINGFIELD --- Less than a week after a University of Illinois lecturer with ties to a 1970s radical group pleaded his case to keep teaching, the Illinois Senate passed a measure that would ban him from teaching regardless of whether the university rules he could stay on board. Sponsoring Sen. Chapin Rose, R-Mahomet, said the bill was “absolutely pushed” because of James Kilgore, whose dismissal case from the university is pending review of university officials. His employment came under scrutiny in February after the News-Gazette in Champaign detailed his former involvement with the Symbionese Liberation Army, which is most famous for kidnapping media heiress Patricia Hearst in 1974.

In the race for U.S. Senate, Republican challenger Jim Oberweis is getting shunned by two top Republicans - one local, one national. *** Durbin is such a favorite for reelection that Republican Senator Mark Kirk says he’s not even planning to campaign with fellow Republican Oberweis. “I’m going to be protecting my relationship with *** and not launching into a partisan jihad that hurts our partnership [in which we] both pull together for Illinois.” And at his side at an unrelated news conference was Republican Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, in town for a fundraiser, who took a pass on supporting Oberweis. “The reason I’m here is for my own reelection, and so I’m not getting involved in the Illinois Senate race at this time.” And so what you have there are two top senators throwing Oberweis under the bus.

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations. The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative. Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans. Barrack Obama "It’s clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race," Ryan, 44, said in a statement. "What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign – the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play." Although Ryan ...
From 1985 to 1990, Vladimir Putin was assigned to Directorate S, the illegal intelligence-gathering unit of the KGB (the classification for agents who used falsified identities). One of Putin's jobs was to coordinate efforts with the Stasi to recruit foreigners in the hopes of sending them undercover in the United States. In 1992 Barack Obama comes out of nowhere to win a seat in the Illinois Senate, where he spends his time keeping his nose clean and not voting on anything that would stop him running for President. Flash forward to today and Russia is rebuilding it's empire while the USA is in rapid decline at the hands of Barry. Anyone else think we have been had?
