Any news which can emphasize Republican superiority on the issue of national security is good political news, notwithstanding what it portends on the international scene. Republicans have for years played to their strength with their firm resolve which has aided in keeping us safe from repetitive attacks. Thats why news of the North Korean detonation of an underground nuclear device which adds immeasurably to international tensions is good news for Republicans in this election season. One can only fantasize how Speaker Nancy Pelosi and hireling Rahm Emanuel (whom a supporter on Readers Comments yesterday mistakenly referred to as Raul) would move in to make the presidents life even more miserable and jeopardize the unity we must have in time of war.

Starting at the top of the ticket with the candidates for governor, I will vote for neither major candidates but will write in the name of Randy Stufflebeam the Constitutional Partys nominee for governor. There are several reasons for this. First, I cannot constitutionally to borrow a word vote for Topinka who, as state Republican chairman, told the 100,000 plus people listening to my radio show that she would not endorse Peter Fitzgerald for reelection and who then denied she said it even though the tape was running and is in my possession. In fifty years of politics, I have never seen the like. Second, there is a lot to be said for the Republican party losing this thing and then regrouping to install better officers. Third, there is a lot to be said for the up-building of an alternative party for conservatives which can be used much as the Conservative party of New York was used to supply an alternative for us.
For that reason, I would like to encourage those who build the Constitution Party to move ahead with their work. I think it is valuable to have a true conservative party in Illinois. For these reasons and because I know and believe Stufflebeam is an honorable candidate who espouses much of what I believe (I would exempt trade issues only), I will be happy to write him in and I recommend others do the same.
I will support the remainder of the Republican state ticket. I think the candidate for Comptroller, Carole Pankau is especially bright and integrity-filled. I have not met the candidate for State Treasurer but will have her on my show this next Sunday and will tell you more about her after that time. I am proud to support State Senator Dan Rutherford and the candidate for attorney general who is so well known his name escapes me at this writing. I regret that by not being able to support the Republican candidate for governor I cannot mark for her good lieutenant governor candidate, Joe Birkett. If I could, I would vote for him.
Catholic Citizens of Illinois which I have the honor to chair (along with Mrs. Maryann Hackett, the CEO), is honoring the man whom I consider to be truly Americas Bishop Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln, Nebraska one of the very few strongly assertive prelates in the United States who stands firm for all the earmarks of the Church, including the right of priests to deny Communion to pro-abort Catholic pols. I have written about him often in The Wanderer and it will be a privilege to introduce him at the event. I would hope you would see fit to attend. Title of his talk will be Facing the Crisis: Reflections on the Current Crisis in the Church.
The St. Thomas More award for courageous and distinctive Catholic citizenship will be given to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Guzior who are involved in more good works in education, charity and help for the disadvantaged than I can name or remember.
The dinner will be held Thursday night, October 19 at Drury Lane, reception at 6, dinner at 7. Tickets are $60 per plate, $500 for a table. It is tax deductible. For more information go to
