Letter to the Editor: Vote for Regan Deering in the IL Republican Primary March 19


Posted February 26, 2024


If you are planning to vote in the Republican primary for State House District 88, consider casting that vote for Regan Deering. Regan is a family-oriented person, wife and mother of three, who has served as the volunteer Chair of the Decatur Public School Foundation, oversaw the building of a new community food bank, and currently sits on her local school board. She's a former educator and small business owner. 
When you meet Regan, you meet the real Regan, not someone who has been in politics for over a decade. Regan is conservative in her approach to issues that plague Illinois and pledges to stand up to the Chicago cabal in the General Assembly that seeks to rule downstate Illinois. 
Her opponent in the primary, lawyer Chuck Erikson, has served for 12 years on the McLean County Board and chairs the Land Use Committee. He bears the responsibility, by his voting record, for the proliferation of the ruinous wind energy projects that carpet McLean County and pollute the night sky with flashing red lights. Rural living has been tainted all for a negligible impact on global CO2 emission. He should not be elected to the state house.
Instead of another lawyer, let’s put Regan in the state house to fight for local governance in downstate Illinois.

Station Editorial: Illegal Immigrants Attack 2 NYPD Officers; We Can't Live Like This


Posted February 8, 2024


This is a station editorial, I’m Randal J. Miller, station president.

The dis-respect for the rule of law among those who are citizens of this country, is bad enough.   But for dozens of illegal immigrants who are being housed as sanctuary citizens in New York City, to beat 1 city police officers January 27th, is beyond belief.

According to CBS News, as the NYPD continues its search for six more suspects, pressure is mounting to deport the asylum seekers accused of attacking officers in Times Square.

The NYPD says of the dozen migrants involved in attack on January 27th, six are still wanted. Six were arrested, but only one is in jail; the rest were released.

On February First,  scores of Midtown South police officers were in the courtroom when a judge ordered one of those arrested, held on $15,000 bail for second-degree assault and obstructing governmental administration. The Manhattan District Attorney says he's the man accused of starting the fight. Police say they identified him by the tattoo on his neck.

In court, he was wearing a shirt that said, "Work hard. Be kind."

The head of the police union asked why 4 of the attackers were released on their own recognizance.  

New York Governor Kathy Hochul reiterated calls to deport them, quoting the Governor:    "Get them all and send them back. You don't touch our police officers. You don't touch anybody," she said.

When are we as a people, going to begin respecting the rule of law, and those whose job it is to enforce the law?   It goes back to what I’ve been saying for months.   It seems what was wrong is now right.   

A democracy can’t live like this.   Human beings created by God can’t live like this.   Something’s gotta change.   Inside of each one of us.

That’s our opinion, we welcome yours.   Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
