050716 Statement by Carol Davis, Founder & Coordinator of West Suburban Patriots

As the nation worked it's way through the Presidential Primaries, it became obvious that some in our group either did not know our core principles, or did not believe in and uphold our core principles. This statement was made by Carol Davis at the May 7, 2016 Patriot's Breakfast in order to clarify for everyone what our group stands for, so they could make their decision on whether or not to continue their involvement in our organization.

There is an elephant in the room…

Illegal Immigration: A Christian Response

A compelling and well-cited letter from Cindy Yurachek, regarding the Christian attitude toward illegal immigration:

Dear Pastor Bugh and Pastor McElwee,

I listened to your conversation with Mark Elfstrand on Thursday, September 24 re immigration and Danny Carroll speaking at our church this Sunday, October 25.  I have watched a video of his speaking of immigration as well as read his book, Christians at the Border:  Immigration, the Church, and the Bible and I am very…

Still Proud to be One of the "Crazy Ones"

Having worked in printing, publishing and graphic design for 35+ years, I'm a big fan of Apple Computer. Way back in 1984, I was one of those morons who spent $2500 to buy a little Apple Macintosh computer when they first hit the market. My friends and family told me I was nuts. As a graphic artist, the minute I saw the Mac and what I could potentially do with it, I fell in love. MacPaint and MacDraw, about the only Macintosh software available at the time, had visions of new creative…

Obama's 5 Top Taliban Terrorists Will Soon Go Free Yet Sgt Derrick Miller, Lt Clint Lorance and Other Good Soldiers Continue To Sit in Leavenworth

From Beverly Perlson

The news that Bowe Bergdahl will answer for deserting his Brothers on the battlefield was long in coming. I can only imagine what the families of the 8 Soldiers have been going through since the Rose Garden celebration when Mr. Obama announced the deal brokered to bring Bergdahl home. Watching that… Continue

Make a Difference–Help a Candidate

Our Illinois Primary has passed, our candidates have been chosen. Too many of us think we can sit the Summer out on the sidelines, and wait to kick into full gear in September as the November election approaches. NOT!

I'm writing this to BEG each of you to get active this Summer and work for good candidates who are running in other states. Do you want to get good Constitutional conservatives into the Senate and the House next year? All across the nation, the kind of candidates that we…

"Lone Survivor": a message from our friend Bev Perlson, Band of Mothers

I recently saw the movie "Lone Survivor", based on the book by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. I read the book when it came out and I had the opportunity to meet Marcus when he spoke at the Union League here in Chicago in 2012. It was an absolute honor to meet Marcus, his lovely wife, and Mr Rigby (Marcus's dog who goes with him everywhere).

I went to ask Marcus to sign his book to the nephew of a dear friend of mine, Teresa. Her nephew, "Will" is a young Hero who bravely fights cystic… Continue

How to debate your crazy Leftist relatives at holiday parties and not start WWIII

First, I'm directing these "tips" to myself, because I am quick to fly off the handle when I’m trying to convince a Leftist that they’re wrong. I’m determined to learn to remain calm. As I explored this topic, I realized that many of us need to learn how to compellingly present our principles. We'd like to encourage members of WSP to help us put together a team to work on this. Maybe something like “The Patriot Players”, to present skits and debates that demonstrate effective techniques.…

Some GOOD NEWS for a change!

I received this note from Peter Breen, currently a Trustee in the Village of Lombard. He is running for IL State Representative in the 48th District. It shows that things CAN be turned around with the right people in office who are truly public servants and are willing to work hard for the people they serve:


I thought the Patriots might be interested in the news from our board meeting in Lombard last night: after two and a half years of work, I was able to put… Continue

Roskam: Defund Obamacare

OK, I'll admit I've gotten a bit testy about this issue. In fact, I'm downright angry. What the blazes are these "public servants" of ours in Congress thinking??!! Are they REALLY going to just let this nation-destroying ACA/Obamacare garbage continue to move forward? Along with the blessing of plenty of OUR CASH to help destroy us?? This was another one of the many messages that I sent to Roskam today on this issue:

Congressman Roskam, 

Recently (Friday, August 9,…

Militarization of our "Public Servants"

This should make every freedom-loving American furious. Every level of our government has become militarized. What the #$&@ does the Department of Education need a SWAT team for?! WE ARE PAYING THESE PEOPLE and they are TERRORIZING US!

At the local level, our police forces are now armed to the teeth, and absolutely warrant-less, unlawful raids are being conducted against innocent citizens at an alarming rate. Innocent citizens are being killed by over-zealous and poorly-trained…
