The Budget Wake Up
In the wee hours of the morning on Saturday the Illinois legislature passed their budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The budget is the largest budget in the state's history - and it's over 50% higher than just a decade ago even though Illinois has lost population. Because it's an election year, there are election year gimmicks - to buy votes. Expect your local Democrat legislator to brag about handing out $50 tax credits for every taxpayer and $100 for every dependent.
An Army of No One
Surprise! The military is having problems recruiting new enlistees. Last week when the Biden administration announced its budget, the Army announced that if enacted, Army active duty troop strength would recede to the smallest size since 1940. Don’t be confused, this has nothing to do about money.

Today's Democrats Bear Little Resemblance to the Party of Truman
Dusty Rhodes is the Hamilton County (Ohio) Auditor, and a lifelong Democrat. He gives his insight to how his party bears little resemblance over the years as he has been the only elected democrat in his county. He is no longer recognized in good standing by his own party as they are demanding ideological purity. Jeanne and Dusty talk multiple subjects; from the property tax assessments of poorer areas vs for affluent neighborhoods; Lockdowns; The cultural decline ignored by the Catholic Bishops and promoted by the politicians; And Dusty’s prolific social media presence that has angered his own Democrat party; And his problem with the Republican Party. Senator Ted Cruz asks questions to the justice department, Jeanne gives her take on what transpired; the Governor Whitmer case and the FBI’s involvement in this event; and more on the Jan 6th hearings. What are we expecting for our school children next year; the continuing mandates being pushed on them; and what are employees starting to do again.
