IL-14: Like Him or Not, Jeff Ward Brings Out Worst in Catalina Lauf

Catalina Lauf

And proves Lauf not ready for the big stage by her own actions

After Friday’s article about Catalina Lauf on blogger Jeff Ward’s blog site, The First Ward, one would hope Lauf had the good sense to resist the bait to go after Ward in social media.

She failed.

On Monday, the following tweets were posted from Lauf’s Twitter ID to her over 49K followers:

One must shake their head thinking Lauf actually believes the tweets she sends.

In his regular Wednesday article, the first half is titled “The candidate strikes back” he goes through his very transparent trap he laid for Lauf to see if she would take the bait.

Lauf did, hook, line and sinker as the opening paragraph says:

“It doesn’t happen very often anymore, but I can’t tell you how much fun it is when a candidate or elected official, clearly aggravated by my capacity to tell the truth, comes back at me in the kind of ill-advised manner that proves I exposed them for exactly who they are!”

Jeff Ward, 2/12/20

Ward addresses the subject of the 2nd tweet which Lauf chose to use in her tweets from Monday in his article.

Another tweet went out early Tuesday morning from Ward which is worth discussing:

McHenry County Blog confirmed from an independent source the incident with the Chicago Sun-Times took place.

In Ward’s article, he predicts how he sees Lauf faring on primary election day and it is not pretty, which can be read in his article.

And given Ward’s track record in electoral politics, one must believe the 61 year old former reporter/blogger/author above any optimistic prediction Lauf or her followers may say.

IL-14: Like Him or Not, Jeff Ward Brings Out Worst in Catalina Lauf — 24 Comments

  1. I saw her at the last “debate,” she is not only inexperienced, she is flat out stupid.

  2. You are condemning someone who told her she shouldn’t “procreate.”

    I’m glad she fought back to him, she’s a fighter and isn’t just going to take it.

    This is what we need to expose the left.

    Also, I was at the debate Heinrich.

    I saw more than half of the room come up to her and say “you won this debate and you have my vote.”

  3. Congrats to Ward, for finding a hat to cover a good portion of his head.

  4. Does this guy know JF.?

    his mouth tells me he does…

    He’s done and so is ms.buckwheat..

    desperation usually shows itself in stupid ways..

    Never waste your breath on stupid as you can’t fix it…

    it is what it is…

  5. I’d be good if both Ward and Lauf went away.

    But Ward is definitely the one here comes across worse.

  6. Also, how, exactly, does Ward address the domestic battery accusations in his article?

  7. I have long addressed the completely bogus DV charges on the blog which are nothing more than the latest Geneva Police attempt to shut me up. I’ve never been arrested anywhere outside of Geneva where the GPD has arrested me five times!. I never pushed my wife and she issued a statement in that regard which the Daily Herald printed. This is the only GPD charge I haven’t beaten, but that will change when we win the appeal.

    The Geneva officers lied, they couldn’t get their stories straight, and a great deal of their testimony is beyond reversible error.

    Because the entire 16th Circuit recused themselves in regard to this charge, a vast due process violation, and we knew nothing about the inserted Ogle County Judge, we were forced to resort to a jury trial which is the last thing we wanted. Don’t ever allow yourself to be judged by 12 people who couldn’t get out of jury duty.

    When I am exonerated, the ensuing civil rights lawsuit against the Geneva Police will be one for the ages. True abusers don’t wait 28 years into a marriage to start abusing.

    With all that now reexplained (search TheFirstWard.net for more), I don’t give a shit who likes me or who believes what about me. My many detractors will always cling to any rumor or story that paints me in a bad light, while those who support me understand exactly who I am.

    There is and has always been a price for telling the truth, and if the Geneva Police, a low IQ candidate, or any other person or entity thinks they’ll stop my pursuit of said truth, they’d be sadly mistaken.

  8. Look at how Ward talks to Lauf’s supporters or anybody who doesn’t agree with him.

    I’ve seen him swear, ask them for drugs, call them inbreds, etc.

    How does he bring out the worst in her?

    She put a troll in his place by posting an article reporting facts.

    He has exposed the worst in himself, not in her.

    Why should she get any grief for defending herself?

    She comes across as the sane one in this exchange, despite whatever campaign advice he gives.

  9. “True abusers don’t wait 28 years into a marriage to start abusing.”

    I don’t know the logic or the percentage of this.

    But I don’t think it one precludes the other.

    “I never pushed my wife and she issued a statement in that regard which the Daily Herald printed.”

    But I do believe this is quite common is spousal abuse cases.

    So you got a judge you didn’t know and a jury who didn’t know you. and it’s everybody elses fault.

    Maybe you should have had a better lawyer.

  10. **we knew nothing about the inserted Ogle County Judge**

    LOL – sorry you couldn’t get your preferred judge.

  11. Nice Job Jeff, you attacked me and didn’t even respond to anything I posted.

    You’re a genius.

    Thanks for the response.

    Your logic proves you are an idiot with a gift for prose, nothing more.

  12. While Ward’s approach is vulgar and needlessly cruel, he gets to the point of his opinions ( and the opinions of others.)

    There is a way to communicate and be taken seriously if you just state facts and good hypothesis.

    For example, Ms Lauf, prides herself on something she has no control over-her age.

    Her youth alone should never win votes.

    Historical votes (“ first Black, woman, youngest,” etc are useless demographics that got us Obama, Hillary, Underwood and AOC)

    When I was Lauf’s age I had already had a work record, been a business owner, a spouse, 3 kids, a multiple vehicle owner, Real Estate taxpayer/homeowner, had excellent credit and had a voting record !

    She has none of these.

    She’s going on youth, Hispanic nationality and a few padded bras.

    She has no platform, no plan, no written proposals, hasn’t attempted to work on any Bills, hasn’t been an activist, isn’t known to the Republican Party or the Trumps ( for all the namedropping she does- they don’t know her!) she has no permanent address, no quality endorsements, no good reason as to WHY she claims she’s the best one for the job. (Other than Youth -and that’s not an accomplishment!)

    She needs to study up on what the EPA is, what the ERA is, the difference between Nuclear power vs Nuclear Warfare, keep her word of making appearances, and give voters a voting record, a truthful accomplishment list and a good reason why she’s a good candidate.

    Standing up the Stateline Rifle Assoc for a free meal at another candidate’s fundraiser was another one of her many gaffes that prove she’s not ready, not interested and is an immature opportunist.

    I wish her the best in life’s endeavors and may even support after in a run for local office once she accomplishes something.

  13. I’m inclined to believe Mr. Ward, particularly if cretins like the so-called ‘AlabamaShake’ trash him.

    As for Lauf, maybe she should try her luck at elections in her parents’ native lands: Guatemala & Germany.

    I honestly don’t think Lauf would last very long campaigning in such places as Zona 6, Guatemala City, but she could easily run as a center-left SPD flunky in Deutschland.

  14. String?

    Really, how dramatic.

    At least I never been convicted of spousal abuse.

  15. String?

    Really, how dramatic.

    1 in 1992.

    At least I have never been convicted of spousal abuse.

  16. Funny, “Oak Harp” ……..Standing up the Stateline Rifle Assoc for a free meal at another candidate’s fundraiser was another one of her many gaffes that prove she’s not ready, not interested and is an immature opportunist. …..

    The story was that she never showed up and now she DID show up and ate a meal? You crazies can’t even get your stories straight.

  17. I must have touched a nerve that you took the time to put my name into a public search database to try to embarrass me. I own my mistake. I don’tt blame everyone else. Must be hell having such thin skin like you do. You should really seek help for your anger issues, might make your wife feel safer in the home.

  18. Oak Harp, very astute observations.

    It’s like I’ve been saying, Lauf has yet to produce anyone who worked with her at the Commerce Department, Citizens for Rauner or Uber to give a reference she is really whom she says she is. It’s startling because as she approaches 50K followers on Twitter, not one person is being featured who can give us facts about her. Just people who are caught up on the hype.

    And let’s not forget, we do not know where she was voting after she left Miami University at end of 2013. So where did she cast her ballots in the 2014, 2016 and 2018 election cycles? She has not been forthcoming, and it’s known she did not register in McHenry County until middle of last year.

    Me being Hispanic myself, it’d be terrific to see her really shine as the best candidate for the election. She’s far from it, and this is long before the ERA gaffe.

    Jeff Ward has predicted where Lauf will finish on primary day 32 days from now, and as said in the article, it isn’t pretty.

    Now, will Republican primary voters begin to do an “anyone but Oberweis” movement? Ted Gradel has begun to falter given he has not handled the US Stem Cell Clinic issue effectively now that Oberweis is using it.

    That leaves Sue Rezin as the only viable alternative to Oberweis. All the others are not in the mix, including Lauf.

  19. “Funny, “Oak Harp” ……..Standing up the Stateline Rifle Assoc for a free meal at another candidate’s fundraiser was another one of her many gaffes that prove she’s not ready, not interested and is an immature opportunist.

    The story was that she never showed up and now she DID show up and ate a meal? You crazies can’t even get your stories straight.”

    If someone stands you up, it means they blew you off, they didn’t show up.

  20. Steve,

    Since you clearly have no self reflective capacity whatsoever, from your ranting here, I simply deduced that you at least one DUI.

    I did no research on the issue whatsoever.

    I simply put it up here knowing you’d admit to it yourself.

    It’s getting too easy with conservative bleeps like you who actually think they have something to say.
