Joe Walsh Speaking at Craig Wilcox McHenry VFW Fundraiser Tonight

An email entered my computer saying the following:

Former Congressman Joe Walsh, Nationally Syndicated Radio Host will be speaking Thursday, September 21st, at a campaign kick-off dinner for one of his endorsed candidates, Colonel Craig Wilcox.

Craig is running for Illinois State Senate District 32.

Tickets can be purchased at the door.

All are welcome.

Coincidentally, McHenry Township Assessor Mary Mahady has an article in the Northwest Herald today announcing her candidacy for the same State Senate seat. (I have asked for her press release.)


Joe Walsh Speaking at Craig Wilcox McHenry VFW Fundraiser Tonight — 35 Comments

  1. Wilcox is too partisan and extreme.

    We need people willing to work together for solutions.

    His work on county board proves he is only trying to make name for himself.

    I’ll take Mary Mahady please!

  2. Facts please, we have large problems in Illinois.

    Electing someone who wants to work together, is admirable, but they enable the corruption to continue.

  3. I don’t disagree anotherwatcher.

    Unfortunately corruption and politics go hand in hand.

    It’s more important to elect the person rather than the party.

  4. Compromise has the US $20 trillion in debt.

    Compromise is why Illinois is $200+ billion in debt.

    We’ve had enough of compromise.

  5. Hahaha the only ‘kiss of death’ is for Craig’s opponents!

    ‘Facts Please’ must be Jack Franks minion Kevin Craver !

    AnotherWatcher you get it.

    We need a fighter not a yes man or a lap dog! And we need someone principled, like Wilcox.

  6. Amen to that Xout.

    I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    We don’t need another politician going into this for friends. You want friends, join a country club.


    I’ll help you any way I can because you’re a fighter for transparency and the voters and you’re not afraid to speak up.

  7. As long as the Democrats are in charge of the General Assembly, “working together” means more spending that we can’t afford and no checks on the power of the public employee unions that have bled this state dry.

    Illinois needs more dysfunction.

  8. Billy Bob, our Gov. Rauner is a Republican . . . a poor excuse of a man who will not take a stand. By the way, I am a Republican.

  9. I’m not a big fan of Rauner’s either, but he isn’t the main problem.

    The Dems, with a little help from some RINOs, were able to force their budget upon Rauner over his veto.

    It is imperative that we weaken the Dems in the General Assembly, and that means not electing any more of them and getting rid of the RINOs.

  10. Lani!

    You hit the nail on the head with out ‘Facts Please’ as the lying Craver.

    It all fits!!!!

  11. Wilcox, ‘too extreme’???

    Good, Ill vote for him!

    Thanks Craver-boy!

  12. The letter to the editor is right on the money.

    If one decides to venture into public service, a Cal and One and Done Walsh endorsement is the kiss-of-death.

    Cal was ineffective (so long ago) as a Representative and Walsh is an anti-American who rode the Tea Party surge to his laughable single term.

    Both are losers.

  13. Thank you Tom. For bringing reality check to the naysayers and blind followers on this blog.

    Cal leads the land of misfits.

  14. Agitator? You must mean Cal and the minions in this blog, right? That’s all this is. A place for misfits to whine about non stories.

  15. I spoke to that stinking rat Craver a/k/a ‘Facts Please’ once, when he worked for the Northwest Franks’ Herald.

    Now he’s come ‘clean’ in a way, and directly and publicly works for his puppet-master Jacko.

    You can always tell a rat by the name they take.

    Craver fancies himself another Walter Winchell-type reporter (Winchell was also a Red Shill(, hence his lame projection ‘Facts Please’ … yet Craver’s claim to infamy was his fact-spiking and news-twisting!

  16. Cindy. Stuck in your craw? Sounds like something some liberal elitist would say.

  17. Truth2? Maybe more like Paul Winchell. Then that would make Moderate Jerry Mahoney.

  18. Oh, I almost forgot. That would make Jack Knucklehead Smiff. (How could I forget Knucklehead!)

  19. Somebody at 6:06 PM yesterday said that Walsh is an anti-American.

    This person obviously has never followed Walsh positions in his 2-year US Rep term nor listened to his radio show.

    Yes, Walsh at times is obnoxious when he yells sometimes and that is not necessary and ill advised.

    But, in no way is he an anti-American.

    If you want to use that term for somebody, there is a guy who left office this year and ran our country for 8 years who might come closer to that term if you look at his miserable record of apologizing for the US, diminishing US stature in the world as well as numerous lamebrain decisions and actions he took that diminished the US in many ways.

  20. Wilcox Army lifer with crazies like Joe Walsh and bimbo girl cindy

  21. With the hope to get praising from my sunshine commenters, next I share some prodigious relevant research on the subject.

    An agitator is a device or mechanism to put something into motion by shaking or stirring.

    There are several types of agitation machines, including washing machine agitators (which rotate back and forth) and magnetic agitators (which contain a magnetic bar rotating in a magnetic field).

    Agitators can come in many sizes and varieties, depending on the application.

    In general, agitators usually consist of an impeller and a shaft.

    An impeller is a rotor located within a tube or conduit attached to the shaft.

    It helps enhance the pressure in order for the flow of a fluid be done.

    Modern industrial agitators incorporate process control to maintain better control over the mixing process.

    In a top load washing machine the agitator projects from the bottom of the wash basket and creates the wash action by rotating back and forth, rolling garments from the top of the load, down to the bottom, then back up again.

    There are several types of agitators with the most common being the “straight-vane” and “dual-action” agitators.

    The “straight-vane” is a one-part agitator with bottom and side fins that usually turns back and forth.

    The Dual-action is a two-part agitator that has bottom washer fins that move back and forth and a spiral top that rotates clockwise to help guide the clothes to the bottom washer fins.

    The modern agitator, which is dual-action, was first made in Kenmore Appliances washing machines in the 1980s to present.

    This is a device formed by a metallic bar (called the agitation bar) which is normally covered by a plastic layer, and a sheet that has underneath it a rotatory magnet or a series of electromagnets arranged in a circular form to create a magnetic rotatory field.

    Commonly, the sheet has an arrangement of electric resistances that can heat some chemical solutions.

    During the operation of a typical magnetic agitator, the agitator bar is moved inside a container such as to dissolve a substance in a liquid.

    The container must be placed on the sheet, so that the magnetic field influences the agitation bar and makes it rotate.

    This allows it to mix different substances at high speeds.

    These agitators are known by the company as dual-rollover and triple-rollover action agitators.

    Next, some additional research related to the political front.

    Agitators, or adjutators, was the name given to representatives elected in 1647 by the different regiments of the English Parliamentary army.

    The word really means an agent, but it was confused with “adjutant,” often called “agitant,” a title familiar to the soldiers, and thus the form “adjutator” came into use.

    Early in 1647 the Long Parliament wished either to disband many of the regiments or to send them to Ireland.

    The soldiers, whose pay was largely in arrears, refused to accept either alternative, and eight of the cavalry regiments elected agitators, called at first commissioners, who laid their grievances before the three generals, and whose letter was read in the House of Commons on the 30 April 1647.

    The other regiments followed the example of the cavalry (nicknamed Ironsides), and the agitators, who belonged to the lower ranks of the army, were supported by many of the officers, who showed their sympathy by signing ‘Declaration of the army.

    Cromwell and other generals succeeded to some extent in pacifying the troops by promising the payment of arrears for eight weeks at once; but before the return of the generals to London parliament had again decided to disband the army, and soon afterwards fixed the 1 June as the date on which this process was to begin.

    Again alarmed, the agitators decided to resist; a mutiny occurred in one regiment and the attempt at disbandment failed.

    Then followed the seizure of King Charles I by Cornet Joyce.

    The Agitators, with two officers from each regiment and the Generals formed a new body called the Army Council which after a meeting near Newmarket, Suffolk on Friday 4 June 1647 issued “A Solemne Engagement of the Army, under the Command of his Excellency Sir Thomas Fairfax” to Parliament on 8 June making their concerns known, and also the constitution of the Army Council so that Parliament would understand that the discontent was army-wide and had the support of both officers and other ranks.

    This Engagement was read out to the army at a general meeting on 5 June.

    A few weeks later, there was another meeting while the army was camped at Thriplow Heath near Royston, the soldiers refused the offers made by Parliament, and the agitators demanded a march towards London and the “purging” of the House of Commons, which did not happen.

    Subsequent events are part of the general history of England.

    Gradually the agitators ceased to exist, but many of their ideas were adopted by the Levellers, who may perhaps be regarded as their successors.

    Gardiner says of them, “Little as it was intended at the time, nothing was more calculated than the existence of this elected body of agitators to give to the army that distinctive political and religious character which it ultimately bore”.

    Please praise my prodigious research. Clap, clap, clap! Thank you all…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  22. This is hilarious.

    Obviously Cal hits nerves with his reporting and the Edgar County Watchdogs that fight corruption have picked up the scent that somebody doesn’t want them to.

    Desperate and all too obvious, I’d say that letter was drafted by Lying Jack Franks himself!
