July 15, 2021: On the edge of Springfield's Capital Airport, is a hanger undergoing expansion. Inside, is a crowded collection of aircraft from across the decades of the 20th Century. But unlike most other museums showing old warbirds, these planes still fly, and ARE flown. What began as a childhood dream to have is own collection of military aircraft, is a reality for Mike George, who founded the museum in 1990, and whose company, George Alarm, sponsors the museum.

Jeff Berkowitz and Terry Martin discuss the teaching of critical race theory in public schools in Illinois and around the country. Jason Riley (who is black), writing in the Wall St Journal has lamented that our priority is not to teach math and reading in K-12, but to turn our schools into politically correct, activist, social justice boot camps. This is despite the fact that about 70% of the blacks being taught in the inner city grade schools and often in high school cannot read at grade...

Joined by Jeff Berkowitz from Public Affairs TV in Chicago, we review the Green Energy bill and why many in both industry and labor are against it. And, why the costs can hurt consumers and why the intermittent electrical spurs of wind and solar are difficult to keep enough electricity going to maintain an "always on" grid. We also look at the horrible surge in violent crime and what is NOT being done to stop it. And finally, a look at some of the Republican candidates running for...

Ottawa, Illinois: He's a candidate for governor who proudly talks of the calluses and scars on his hands. A candidate who did not attend an Ivy League school, and in fact didn't go to college at all. Gary Rabine likes to say his education came by doing. And he's done a lot. He started working right after high school in construction and paving and has now built a series of companies. The once young laborer is now worth millions as CEO of The Rabine Group, and says he knows how to fix Illinois'...

On June 30th, the US Supreme Court issued a ruling supporting the Arizona election law that prohibits ballot harvesting and requires votes cast outside of the voters precinct to be discarded. Election laws have recently been changed in others states, including Georgia, and as in Arizona, some argue these election laws are designed to discourage minority voting. But as in the Arizona case, the states argue they have a compelling need to prohibit voting fraud. We explore this issue as Illinois...
