A Chicago teenager and DePaul University student is challenging the Chicago political machine in a ward that has essentially been governed by the same people since 1969.
David Krupa, a conservative college freshman and part time forklift driver who describes himself as a “day one Trump supporter,” is attempting to roil the political establishment of one of America’s most corrupt cities with a bid to become the city’s next alderman for the 13th ward. If successful, Krupa will have disrupted a ward that has had its quiet aldermen hand selected by Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan for decades.
According to NBC Chicago, the sitting alderman of the ward has not been challenged in an election since 1991.
From The Chicago Tribune:
The David is David Krupa, 19, a freshman at DePaul University who drives a forklift part time. He’s not a political powerhouse. He’s just a conservative Southwest Side teenager studying political science and economics who got it in his head to run for alderman in a race that pits him against the most powerful ward organization in Chicago.
The Goliath is the 13th Ward Democratic Organization run by House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, aka Boss Madigan, the most powerful politician in the state. Boss Madigan has long hand-picked his aldermen. He likes them loyal and quiet. The current silent alderman of the 13th Ward is Marty Quinn.
In order to have his name on the ballot, Krupa had to secure at least 400 signatures endorsing his bid. He secured 1,700 signatures, and then was immediately challenged by incumbent Alderman Marty Quinn.
Quinn’s camp managed to find nearly 2,700 residents of Chicago’s 13th ward willing to revoke their signature, almost one thousand more people than Krupa had sign. Less than 200 of these revocations matched signatures secured by Krupa.
As the news broke and possible lawsuits were discussed, Quinn quietly dropped his attempt to have Krupa removed from the ballot. The FBI is now investigating the alleged perjury committed by the Quinn campaign, adding more drama to the already tense election in the 13th ward.
Quinn, who is often silent during debates and attempts to stay out of the public eye, is intimately connected with Madigan, one of the most powerful politicians in Illinois. According to the Chicago Reader, Quinn made over $400,000 working for Madigan since 2000.
From the Chicago Reader:
When Quinn started his political work back in the early 2000s, he was more or less a full-time campaign aide for Madigan. In 2013, he got elected to the council. He was reelected last year—not too difficult, as he ran unopposed.
His political work amounts to a second job—which he reports on his council ethics statement under the category of “advisor” to “Friends of Madigan.”
From what party insiders tell me, Quinn is Madigan’s go-to-guy for really important races—like the recent Stratton-Dunkin showdown.
While the Chicago Democrat Machine may be successful in its attempt to keep the teenage Republican out of office, and the alderman seat in Democrat hands, this would seemingly suggest the political establishment is worried, and ready to resort to virtually any length to keep a conservative from disrupting the ruling Democrat dynasties in Chicago.
Krupa will face off against Quinn on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.
RINO Maria Salazar Challenges Former Trump Advisor Steven Miller on America First Immigration Policy
This freshman is a dangerous RINO.
Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) has barely been in the federal swamp for a month, and she is already working to undermine former president Donald Trump’s “America First” immigration agenda.
Salazar, who was a journalist with the fake news media before running for Congress, took aim at former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, who was credited as the force behind President Trump’s strongest immigration policies. She slammed Miller on a call with her House colleagues to ingratiate herself with the globalists and secure those fat Chamber of Koch checks.
Politico broke the news about the heated exchange between Salazar and Miller, which apparently continued in private as well:
Sources say Salazar pushed for immigration policies that would broaden GOP tent (they are a big tent party) while challenging Miller on how Rs can attract Hispanic and Latino voters given the ultra-conservative policies he is advocating.

Salazar is repeating her corporate-sponsored talking points, but President Trump proved her conventional wisdom wrong in 2020. Trump brought in Hispanics to the Republican Party unlike any political figure before him by standing for the rule of law against marauding Black Lives Matter terrorists and other left-wing thugs at war with civilization.
Big League Politics has reported on Hispanics supporting Trump because they understand the crime and degeneracy that illegal immigration brings to America:
The media constantly fear-mongered about president Donald Trump’s immigration policies ever since he declared his run for office and continued to do so well into his presidency.
The conventional wisdom was that these measures would repel Hispanics across the nation and turn them into a monolithic vote for the Democrat Party.
That did not turn out to be the case in 2020. Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner wrote that Trump’s immigration hawk policies “won broad bipartisan and Hispanic support in the election and even turned several border towns red for the first time in years.”
Per two reviews, a majority of Hispanics and Democrats were in favor of the Trump administration’s efforts to limit immigration during the Wuhan virus pandemic. Similarly, voters in southern border counties reacted negatively to the radical Left’s attacks levied against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform conducted a voter exit survey, where it found that 78 percent of those surveyed believe immigration was an “important” issue for them and played a huge role in who they ended up pulling the lever for. 80 percent supported Trump’s border closure to prevent the Wuhan virus from spreading.
Similarly, Zogby Analytics released a survey showing that 60 percent of Hispanics and 54 percent of Democrats support Trump’s immigration reductions to protect American jobs. Zogby also found similar views among those surveyed about the cuts being good to “maintain our nation’s population.”
FAIR President Dan Stein believes that the election results serve as a warning to Joe Biden and his desire to open up the borders and pass an amnesty bill for the millions of illegal aliens residing in the U.S.
“The election results clearly do not indicate that President-elect Biden has a mandate to institute radical immigration policies being promoted by his party’s far-left wing that include erasing borders and flooding the country with millions of new legal and illegal immigrants,” Stein declared. The FAIR president cited a 76 percent supermajority of those surveyed who are in favor of immigration restriction.
By standing against immigration patriotism and the MAGA agenda, Salazar has exposed herself as a RINO. She will be promoted by the GOP establishment along other frauds like Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) as they attempt to nullify President Trump’s legacy.
