And I think we got it last night,” said Stephanie Rhinesmith, executive director of NXTgen Illinois. Rhinesmith, 27, recruits and trains new Republican political leaders. . .”We’re feeling that our voices are heard, we’re seeing our leaders step up and, you know, provide the solutions and unprecedented times that we need, and I think that is gonna certainly help increase support for the president,” Rhinesmith said. . .”I think those people need to take a look at what the next five years will look like in terms of policy and procedures, if there is a President Biden or a President Trump, and they need to think where their lives in five years, what it should look like,” Rhinesmith said.)

(DIERSEN: LGBTQ-promoters destroy those like me who do not promote LGBTQ. Those who promote LGBTQ, their operatives, and their dupes have always worked the hardest a) against me, b) against what I do as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor and as a Republican Precinct Committeeman, and c) against my what I did as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member.)
https://cnsnews.com/article/national/michael-w-chapman/cpac-honors-openly-gay-scott-presler-2021-ronald-reagan-award
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Although CPAC is the “conservative” action conference, it does not hesitate to recognize and promote homosexuality. In addition to honoring Scott Presler, CPAC, as it has done for many years, permitted the Log Cabin Republicans to exhibit their materials at the conference. The Log Cabin group is comprised of LGBT Republicans who want to “build a stronger, more inclusive Republican Party,” states its website. “LGBT Republicans and straight allies have chosen to transform the GOP from the inside, working to overcome the forces of exclusion and intolerance.” The group supported Donald Trump for president in 2020. Although the issue did not get a lot of press during President Trump’s term in office, it is no secret that he is a strong supporter of the LGBT community and made efforts to hire and promote homosexuals in the federal government. For instance, President Trump named Richard Grenell as ambassador to Germany. Grenell, who is gay, lives with his long-time partner Matt Lashey. Trump later promoted Grenell to acting director of the Office of National Intelligence. Grenell also served as Trump’s senior adviser on LGBTQ outreach, an initiative in 2020 called Trump Pride. On Twitter, Grenell praised Trump as “the most pro-gay president in American history.” Trump supports same-sex marriage. As president, he pushed a policy to help end the criminalization of homosexuality worldwide. He also made it possible for uninsured gays to get a pre-HIV medicine for free. In addition, Trump nominated lesbian Mary Rowland to the federal bench in Illinois; she was confirmed by the Senate. Trump judicial nominee Patrick Bumatay, who is gay, was confirmed by the Senate.)

Every Chicago Public Schools student is eligible and will automatically receive the benefits in the mail. Hundreds of thousands of students in other districts will qualify as well. – Nader Issa
(DIERSEN: How rich were your parents when you were young? Since 1953, my critics/opponents have painted me as being filthy rich because my father made enough money to send me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He did not buy a new car until he was 45 in 1967 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy. He died suddenly of heart failure in 1969. My mother never attended high school.)

(DIERSEN: How much clout do hate-filled Trump-haters have in a) the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), b) your Republican county party organization, and c) your Republican township/ward party organization? GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter readers will be watching closely to see how successful hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in the IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization will have in a) getting me to stop sending out my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) getting everyone to stop reading those newsletters.

https://townhall.com/columnists/mattvespa/2021/03/02/the-one-wing-of-the-gop-that-keeps-embarrassing-itself-over-trump-n2585546
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump wing won. It still amuses me to no end how some within the GOP and the media thinks there’s some debate about the future of the party going on. It’s a false narrative. In 2016, yes, there was a war. It was called the Republican primaries and Donald Trump emerged on top. Since then, the base has changed. The party has changed, and the people who simply don’t get it are Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and a few other losers who will never be elected president let alone clinch ten delegates in the GOP primaries. If you’re that weak, you can’t talk about shaping the party. It circles back to the simple question of what these few, very few, anti-Trumpers have to fear from Trumpism? Who’s afraid of Donald Trump that isn’t an unhinged progressive?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Community college students often have children and part- or full-time jobs. Food and housing insecurity routinely derails them. And those challenges have been exacerbated by the public health and economic crisis. “For a lot of students, going to college is not possible if they don’t have access to child care, transportation,” Carmel Martin, deputy director for economic mobility on the White House Domestic Policy Council, said in an interview. “We need to ensure they can afford the tuition but also that they have the support to be successful and complete their program.” Community colleges often get less public funding than four-year colleges and universities. During his campaign, Biden proposed grants for colleges that enroll a high proportion of students from low-income families — an initiative akin to the anti-poverty Title I program for public schools. Biden has also called for more federal spending on workforce training, another idea that could boost community colleges.)

FORBES
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters crow about their success in getting Wheaton College a) to promote hatred against Trump and b) to promote hatred against those who do not hate Trump.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeltnietzel/2021/03/01/these-christian-colleges-are-taking-on-todays-hot-button-social-issues/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No recent example illustrates the willingness of CCCU colleges to speak out about political affairs and challenge the positions espoused by many evangelicals better than the recent statement signed by hundreds of staff and faculty at Wheaton College, rebuking former President Donald Trump for his role in the violent riot at the nation’s capital on January 6. (Full disclosure: I’m an alum of Wheaton.) The statement criticized President Trump for what it called “wicked leadership.” “The January 6 attack on the Capitol was characterized not only by vicious lies, deplorable violence, white supremacy, white nationalism, and wicked leadership—especially by President Trump—but also by idolatrous and blasphemous abuses of Christian symbols. The behaviors that many participants celebrated in Jesus’ name bear absolutely no resemblance to the Christian teachings or ethics that we submit to as faculty and staff of Wheaton College. Furthermore, the differential treatment displayed by those with a duty to protect in their engagement with rioters who trespassed on the Capitol grounds illegally, when compared to recent protests over police brutality in D.C. last summer, illustrates the ongoing reality that systemic racism in our country is tragically and undeniably alive and well. These realities are reprehensible. Our Christian faith demands shining a light on these evils and the simultaneous commitment to take appropriate action.” Nor was this the first time Wheaton faculty had sharply objected to Trump and the role of Evangelical leaders who have championed his policies. Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of Wheaton’s Billy Graham Center, called for a “reckoning” on Trump in a recent NPR interview with Rachel Martin. Responding to one question, Stetzer said, “I’ve been one for years who was saying we need to see more clearly who Donald Trump is and has often not been listened to. But I would say that for many people, the storming of the Capitol, the desecration of our halls of democracy, has shocked and stunned a lot of people and how President Trump has engaged in riling up crowds to accomplish these things.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans see those very measures as threats that would both limit the power of states to conduct elections and ultimately benefit Democrats, notably with higher turnout among minority voters. . .Yet to many Republicans, it amounts to an unwarranted federal intrusion into a process that states should control. Rep.

— Poll shows most GOP voters back Trump 2024 bid – MAX GREENWOOD
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/541033-poll-shows-most-gop-voters-back-potential-trump-2024-bid
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The poll shows 52 percent of GOP voters back Trump, who has floated a potential comeback in 2024 after losing to President Biden in November. That makes him far and away the favorite for his party’s presidential nod; former Vice President Mike Pence placed second with 18 percent support, while former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley came in third with only 7 percent support. If Trump ultimately decides against another presidential bid, however, it’s Pence who picks up the most support, according to the poll. Forty-one percent of GOP voters surveyed said they prefer Pence for the nomination if Trump isn’t on the ballot. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) takes second place in that scenario, garnering 16 percent support, while Haley remains in third with the backing of 10 percent of GOP voters.)

— White House and press are at odds over plan to charge reporters for coronavirus testing – Paul Farhi
https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/media/white-house-press-covid-tests/2021/02/26/d623f316-7855-11eb-948d-19472e683521_story.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Reporters who cover the White House may soon be paying what amounts to an admission fee to do their jobs. Starting Monday, the White House’s press office said it will start charging journalists for coronavirus tests, which are required for anyone entering the White House grounds. The proposed cost for each test: $170. With dozens of journalists at the White House each day, the fees could add up to tens of thousands of dollars flowing from newsrooms, many of them small and cash-strapped, into government coffers. Until now, the cost of testing has been borne by the White House. But officials there contend that the cost of maintaining the testing regime for nearly a year has strained its budget. So it wants to shift the burden onto news organizations: No test, no entry to the White House. The plan has alarmed the White House Correspondents’ Association, which represents reporters in issues affecting the presidential press corps. The organization has objected to the proposal because of the financial burden it would impose on news organizations, especially smaller ones for whom a $170 daily fee would be onerous. “It sets up a means test for White House coverage,” said one correspondents’ association member familiar with the proposal, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the policy hasn’t been formally announced. No other federal agency charges journalists a test fee, this person said. The fees would add up quickly for larger news organizations, too. The TV networks send as many as eight people a day to the White House grounds to report, produce and operate cameras and equipment. It would cost $1,360 a day to test an eight-person crew under the White House plan. News organizations collectively are limited to 80 people a day on the White House grounds because of coronavirus restrictions. This includes those working in the briefing room and workspaces behind it as well as those who maintain TV camera positions outside the Oval Office on the North Lawn. News organizations have long paid many of the costs of covering the White House. When reporters travel with the president on Air Force One, for example, they are billed by the White House for the trip. They also pay for temporary office space during presidential trips, and for meals when they accompany the president on “pool” duty assignments. But health and security measures have typically been the responsibility of the White House — in other words, taxpayers — not news organizations. “Nobody asked us to pay a fee to put up the fence,” said one journalist, referring to new security barriers around the White House complex. The White House Correspondents’ Association declined to comment, as did White House press secretary Jen Psaki. The tests would be administered under a contract with CVS Health. After prodding from the correspondents’ association, White House officials agreed this week to accept proof of an outside test as an alternative condition for entry. Private tests in the region range from around $50 to $200 or more, depending on the speed, location and method used. But it’s still unclear what kinds of outside tests would satisfy the White House. Some have suggested that making vaccinations available to White House reporters, or even requiring that journalists get vaccinations on their own, could resolve the daily testing issue. But scientists still aren’t certain whether vaccinated people can spread the coronavirus, even if they are immune to its symptoms. In another concession, the White House officials agreed to continue covering the costs of tests administered to pool reporters — those assigned to follow the president when he travels and for those attending daily press briefings. That would cover only a small number of reporters, however. Social-distancing rules adopted last year by the White House Correspondents’ Association limit the number of reporters attending the daily briefings to just 14 at a time.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2021/2/28/22306565/trump-attacks-rep-adam-kinzinger-other-republicans-who-backed-impeachment-cpac-speech-pac
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kinzinger is raising money through his federal Future First PAC for his recently launched “Country First” campaign to drain Trump’s influence, fringe elements and conspiracy theory followers from the Republican Party. Donations to that Kinzinger Future First political war chest are subject to federal contribution caps. Allies of Kinzinger are creating “Americans Keeping Country First,” which will be able to take donations in unlimited sums. “Americans Keeping Country First is the only Super PAC dedicated exclusively to protecting Republican members who voted to impeach or convict” Trump, the group said. According to memos obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, this super PAC, first disclosed by the Washington Post, will be “dedicated solely to defending the Republican members of Congress who took votes of conscience to impeach or convict President Trump after rioters stormed the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021.” Even though this group cannot coordinate with Kinzinger’s political drives, he plans to headline events on its behalf where he will “promote” his Country First principles, the group said. This is allowed under Federal Election Commission rules. The goal, the group said, is to “build a potent political operation that provides a counterweight to far-right candidates and groups that threaten primary campaigns against principled House Republican members.” Ardent Trump backer Catalina Lauf announced a Kinzinger 2022 GOP primary challenge. Kinzinger has not made his 2022 plans known. . .Illinois GOP Party not pursuing Kinzinger censure Several Illinois county GOP organizations and the Chicago Republican Party have censured Kinzinger in the wake of his impeachment vote. The Chicago GOP party vote on Feb. 23 was among 34 ward committeemen; the organization has 16 of those 50 ward spots unfilled. What’s noteworthy is that the Illinois Republican Party is not pursuing a Kinzinger censure. According to the GOP party spokesman, the view of the new state GOP party chair, Don Tracy, is that the state party “will not be censuring Congressman Kinzinger. His goal is to unite the party and stop the circular firing squad.”)

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2021-02-28/trump-cpac-speech-get-rid-of-them-all
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of the pro-impeachment Republicans Trump singled out, said earlier in the day that the former president’s focus on retribution would continue to divide their party. “I think we are a party that’s been for too long peddling in fear, using fear as a compelling way to get votes. And fear does motivate,” he said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “But after a while, fear can destroy a country, can destroy narratives, and it can destroy a democracy,” he said. “And we have to quit peddling that.”)

MORNING BREW
— Why Publishers Put Up Paywalls. We know they can be a buzzkill; here’s why paywalls exist. – Eliza Carter
(DIERSEN: www.gopillinois.com will never have a paywall or advertising. GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter subscriptions will always be free and without advertising. Needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are furious about that. They are furious that I have the time, money, ability, and motivation to put together and send out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter each and every morning and each and every evening.)
https://www.morningbrew.com/daily/stories/2021/02/05/publishers-put-paywalls

(FROM THE ARTICLE: At Morning Brew, frustrated readers email us all the time about getting blocked from reading content we’ve recommended in the newsletter, and as readers ourselves, we empathize. But I want to take a moment to explain why publishers put up paywalls—and unpack the economics a bit. First, the basics. Any publisher, from the New Yorker to Cracked, traditionally brings in revenue from either a) advertising or b) subscriptions. Advertising is great—Morning Brew built a tremendous ad-based business—but subscriptions can be steadier. If the economy takes a dip, ad spending usually does too. How do you drive subscriptions? Not by giving away content for free. Hence, paywalls.)

(DIERSEN: Expect that ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters will promote hatred against me and against my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. Previously, these haters promoted hatred against TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and against the Illinois Center Right Coalition.)
http://mchenrycountyblog.com/2021/02/28/kinzinger022821/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’m excited to report our continued momentum and progress as more and more people learn about Country First and decide to join our movement. I’m also inspired by the huge number of unsolicited donations we’ve received from people across the political spectrum who want to see truth, courage, sanity, and decency return to our politics. It’s all incredibly encouraging, and I hope you are beginning to feel it, too. However, I know many are anxious about Donald Trump’s first big speech this Sunday. Many expect him to declare his intention to run for president again in 2024. Whether he says that or not, we know what else to expect: More lies about stolen elections, more vitriol for anyone who dares to criticize him, more self-aggrandizement, and more fear and conspiracy peddling. It will be more of the same. The great news is that Country First is ready to offer an alternate narrative: A hopeful, optimistic view of our future, where the politics of fear are rejected and reasonable people of goodwill can come together to actually solve problems. We know in our bones that America is better than this — and so it will be. On Sunday, we’ll be releasing a new video and doing multiple national interviews to draw a stark contrast between the Trump First and Country First visions for America. And once the video is out, I hope you’ll help me spread our positive message far and wide! In the meantime, I’m happy to announce that we’ve released the first episode of our podcast, which is called Country First Conversations. It will soon be available wherever you like to get your podcasts, but for now you can listen to it at our website or on Spotify. This week’s guest is Congressman Peter Meijer of Michigan [MI-03], who joined me in voting for impeachment. He’s a fellow veteran, and an all-around great guy, so I hope you’ll check it out. As a side note, we did broadcast our conversation live, in real-time via the Clubhouse Drop-In Audio App, where people who join the “room” can participate and ask questions. If that sounds interesting to you, check out the app and feel free to add me at @RepKinzinger so you can be part of the live conversation in the future. Finally, I want you to know we are pursuing every avenue and alliance that we believe will help spread the word about this movement and make a difference for our nation’s future. But our most powerful, potent resource will always be YOU. Please continue to talk to your family and friends, and make sure they know that ALL are welcome to take up this banner. It will require more than Republicans, Independents, or Democrats alone to heal this country — it will take good, reasonable people working together. And THAT, my friend, is why Country First already gives me so much hope. Thanks for reading this far, and stay tuned for Sunday. I’ll be sharing our new video with you, and can’t wait to hear what you think.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The truth is, many on the left don’t understand what a reporter is. They loathe Fox News but assume that the mainstream media are basically on their side, the same way Fox commentators are on Trump’s, laying the groundwork for him to start his second coming at CPAC this weekend. For the left, over the past four years, a reporter has been an ally and a superhero comrade in the epic mission of destroying Donald Trump. Liberals lionized any cable hosts and runaway Republicans who blasted Trump, even if they had previously been on the G.O.P. payroll, selling the Iraq war and Sarah Palin. Let’s be honest. It’s a lot more pleasant to be hailed by the left than demonized, as you are during periods when you’re holding a Democratic president to account, because the left can be just as nasty as the right.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/02/desperate_progressives_try_to_find_nazi_symbol_on_the_cpac_stage.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Will progressives ever stop comparing conservatives to Nazis? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself for some time and I wouldn’t be surprised if other conservatives have wondered the same thing. In a sense, progressives and the liberal media seem hopelessly desperate to form some sort of pseudo-link between the Nazis and modern American conservatives. Indeed, it’s been a fruitless, pointless goal of theirs for many years, much to no avail. . .While I don’t like being compared to the Nazis, the comparison isn’t even an accurate one given the values and beliefs I and other conservatives hold. Indeed, I’d argue that conservatives are the polar opposite of the Nazis, officially known as the ‘National Socialist German Workers’ Party’. Did you catch that? Progressives don’t seem to like bringing up the Nazis’ full party name and they rarely do so. To the dismay of leftists, yes, the Nazis were indeed socialists. No, they weren’t “far-right” as many have claimed and I’d argue that fascism, socialism and communism are all on the very far-left end of the political spectrum. Compare the hateful, totalitarian and genocidal rhetoric of the Nazis to the values held by conservatives. Conservatives value tradition, religion, practicality, commonsense, limited government, a lasting preservation of our Constitutional rights and an emphasis on individuality and liberty. That hardly mirrors the conformist, hateful and dictatorial views of the Nazis or any other left-wing factions. The far-left (Nazis included) has totalitarianism embedded in its very being. In contrast, conservatives are some of the least totalitarian people you’ll meet. So how should we remedy this persistent problem of progressives comparing us to Nazis? Well, we can certainly argue with facts and logic but some will pointlessly keep trying to compare us to Nazis or other historically-evil groups. Their minds are made up so the best thing we can do is roll our eyes, have a good laugh and provide brief rebuttals if we deem it necessary. To conclude, no, conservatives aren’t Nazis or even remotely similar to Nazis. ANTIFA on the other hand…Well, that’s a different story.)

POLITICO
— When the Left Attacked the Capitol Fifty years ago, extremists bombed the seat of American democracy to end a war and start a revolution. It did neither, but it may have helped bring down a president. – LAWRENCE ROBERTS
(DIERSEN: What did you do in 1971? I lived with my mother and brother in Crete. My father had died suddenly in October of 1969. I started the year working as the Retail Sales Manager for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights, taking a graduate business management course at UIC, and awaiting a decision on my application for a financial hardship draft deferment. That application was approved, and because of my draft lottery number, I was no longer subject to the draft. I believe that prompted Oldsmobile to offer me a job which I accepted. But when I told my Firestone boss, he immediately and rudely fired me. But then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS to be a GS-7 (currently $48,445/year) Revenue Officer in Chicago. But then, my Firestone boss offered me a part-time job pumping gasoline which I accepted. Before I started working for IRS and working part-time for Firestone, I went on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas. My 1969 Dodge Charger SE was stolen in Chicago in August. That directly resulted in my buying a new 1972 Corvette and a 1962 Chevy Bel Air for everyday use. At the end of the year, IRS granted my request to be assigned to its Harvey office.)
