    Former Illinois Congressman turned conservative radio host Joe Walsh went on a twitter rant following the deadly sniper attack on Dallas police officers Thursday, including a now-deleted message that read: "This is now war. Watch out Obama." Walsh, a Republican who represented Illinois' 8th district from 2011 to 2013 before becoming a syndicated radio host, delivered a series of tweets that criticized President Barack Obama and suggested that the president was a "cop hater" no different from "the thugs on the street."

    Eagles keyboardist and guitarist Joe Walsh says he's pulling out of a Cleveland summer concert he thought would be a nonpartisan event for veterans' families because it's actually a launch for the Republican National Convention. Walsh says in an emailed statement he's "very concerned about the rampant vitriol, fear-mongering and bullying coming from the current Republican campaigns." He says he "cannot in good conscience endorse the Republican party in any way."

They're angry -I mean, look at [Republican frontrunner Donald] Trump - and they want to do something about it. I think we're at the beginning of this, and I think you're going to see...

  • Walsh emerges as first potential primary challenger to Kirk

    CHICAGO - Former Republican congressman and conservative radio host Joe Walsh says he's "seriously looking into" a primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk next year. He told Illinois Review he will decide within the next two months. Citing Kirk's lack of support for Jim Oberweis' 2014 challenge to Dick Durbin, Walsh told the Daily Herald: "As far as I'm concerned, he [Kirk] left the Republican Party." The usual political pontificators speculate that Walsh is merely looking to boost ratings, and will ultimately not run. "It's about him and promoting himself and promoting his positions. He's just not viable, said...

    Pastor Corey Brooks is a giant on Chicagos South Side, both figuratively and literally. Standing over six feet tall, the pastor of New Beginnings Church of Chicago is more than just a man of the gospel. To the neighborhood he serves, hes a preacher, a mentor, a role model, and more importantly, hes everything that the Reverends Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson arent an outspoken advocate and spokesman for the betterment of the lives of everyone in his community. I first met Pastor Brooks last year when I wanted to get involved in solving the problem of violence that...

    Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) is starting his own super-PAC to counter a group conservatives fear will protect establishment candidates from primary challenges. The tweet by Walsh, the outspoken former congressman, is in response to the creation of the Conservative Victory Project, a super-PAC being launched by Karl Rove, formerly a top adviser to President George W. Bush. The founders of the Rove super-PAC intend to engage in GOP primary races and back the most electable candidate. The group argues that a number of untested conservative candidates made it through 2012 primaries, only to lose in the general election. The...

The union had endorsed Barack Obama for President, but favored Walsh over his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth. Walsh is also endorsed by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the taxpayer watchdog's group, the National Taxpayers Union, which makes for an amazing bipartisan trifecta.

    Once a person serves his country in the military, particularly in combat, that person rightly earns the respect and appreciation of a grateful nation. When we see military personnel in uniform at church, at the airport, at the mall we thank them for their service in person. We write letters to the editor, we donate to veterans groups, we call our legislators on behalf of their issues. The American people love and respect our servicemen, not only while they serve, but forever after, particularly those who bear the scars of war for life, carrying the wounds of bullet,...

    Its been quite a year for Georgetown University Law graduate Sandra Fluke, who fell into the spotlight after conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called her a slut in February. The 31-year-old also spoke at the DNC this week, and Rep. Joe Walsh is not impressed. The Republican politician said during a Saturday campaign stop that Fluke needs to just get a job already. --snip-- So at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night their first prime time speaker was Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is. Think about this, a 31-32 year old law student who has been a student for life, who gets...

    Congressman Joe Walsh ^ | June 26, 2012 | Joe Walsh
    Today Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) introduced the No- Hassle Flying Act, which streamlines excess baggage security measures for international flights. Under current law, when someone flies internationally and then takes a domestic flight, they must have their bags screened twice. For example: When someone returns to Springfield from Montreal, Canada, they typically must fly from Montreal Trudeau International Airport, through Chicago OHare International, and on to Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport. During that time, a persons bags are rescreened in Chicago, even though they were already checked in Montreal. This requires passengers to collect the bags from baggage claim and go...

    The botched gun-tracking operation Fast and Furious was a plot hatched by the Obama administration to impose stricter gun laws, a House Republican said. In an interview with the National Rife Association, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said the controversial Justice Department operation which authorized the sale of guns to known and suspected straw buyers for Mexican drug cartels was a plot from the administration to build support for gun control. This was the most anti-gun administration in our countrys history and there are a number of us that believe the whole genesis of this Fast and Furious...

    Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) recently introduced the Dairy Deregulation Act to phase out the government's milk price setting regime, called the "Federal Milk Marketing Orders (FMMO)". This program was established in pre-refrigeration 1937 to guarantee that there were no shortages of milk across the country. Today 74 years later, milk is the only major agricultural product with government-mandated prices that differ according to product use. Walsh stated: Most taxpayers are unaware that they are paying for their milk twice. Currently American families are taxed to pay for a federal program that directly increases the cost of their milk. This is...
