...The book is exactly what it says: The story of the most famous science graph of the 21st century and how it led, via Al Gore's movie and the United Nations, to a world of cartoon climatology where Obama, the Prince of Wales and other world leaders now routinely talk like the kind of gibbering apocalyptic loons who used to walk the streets with sandwich boards predicting the end of the world.

New Slate of Officers Elected at Annual Meeting!
On January 9, 2016, WRC members elected a new slate of officers. Read about them here. Outgoing President Jennifer Neubauer thanked her officers and board for their constant support and dedication over the past two years. She also recognized former WRC Presidents and thanked them for their contribution and past leadership, noting that she had felt like a "midget standing on the shoulders of giants" while at the helm of the now 75-year old WRC. Following the brief members' meeting, speaker Michael J. Lotus offered fascinating insight on his and James C. Bennett's book: America 3.0, Rebooting American Prosperity in the 21st Century—Why America’s Greatest Days Are Yet to Come (Encounter Books, 2013). Read about the event here.
January 2, 2016. Government support for religion is not only justified by the Constitution, it was the norm for hundreds of years and it helped the United States become a free and prosperous nation, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Saturday in Metairie.
Speaking before a small crowd at Archbishop Rummel High School, Scalia delivered a short but provocative speech on religious freedom that saw the conservative Catholic take aim at those who confuse freedom of religion for freedom from it.
The Constitution's First Amendment protects the free practice of religion and forbids the government from playing favorites among the various sects, Scalia said, but that doesn't mean the government can't favor religion over nonreligion. Read more here.

What ISIS Really Wants By Graeme Wood
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it. READ MORE HERE
Watch Your Language–or Else
Written By Laurie Higgins
Surprise, surprise, over the holidays, the anti-cultural coal mine emitted more noxious fumes. Unfortunately, people of faith continue to ignore the canary’s corpse.
Just before Christmas, New York City’s Commission on Human Rights released stunning speech code requirements regarding gender dysphoria that mandate that “employers, landlords, and business owners” lie or be fined up to $250,000. Read more here.
The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area. The WRC exists to assist local, state and national Republican candidates win elective office; to assist elected Republican officeholders with constituent interface and to educate all voters on issues important to the maintenance of our Constitutional republic and the social and economic vitality of Illinois and our local communities.
Consistent with the written Illinois and National GOP platforms, the WRC supports reverence for the United States Constitution and the rule of law, and the traditional, American values protecting human life, personal liberty and responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness in any lawful sphere of endeavor.
The WRC does not support the increasingly intrusive and dehumanizing interference of either state or federal governments that deny life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness including but not limited to: job-killing oppressive taxation and regulation, wasteful government spending, the cynical creation and maintenance of a permanent, government-dependent underclass, corporate cronyism, the governmental monopoly on education, denial of school choice, the redefinition of marriage and the trampling of religious liberty.
We understand that good Republicans—both voters and candidates and to sometimes widely varying degrees—do not necessarily agree with everything in the platform. We agree with Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend, not a 20% traitor. If you agree with 80% of the GOP platform, you’re a friend. What’s more, you’re a Republican! So join us!
