GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. It is not “Democrat-Lite.” The only legitimate reason a) to be a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, b) to be an Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention Delegate, c) to serve on an IRP State Convention committee, d) to be an officer of a Republican township/ward or county party organization, e) to be an IRP State Central Committee (SCC) member, f) to be an IRP National Committeeman or Committeewoman, and g) to be the IRP chairman is to help elect candidates in Illinois who can and will defend and advance the Republican Party platform. But in Illinois, in DuPage County, and in Milton Township, far too many of the aforesaid reject far too many planks in the Republican Party platform, most commonly, its personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. Far too many of the aforesaid get rid of those like me who promote the aforesaid planks. Ever-increasingly, Republican candidates in Illinois paint themselves as being Democrat-Lite if not anti-conservative. Ever-increasingly, they talk and/or act like the Republican Party platform does not exist. The current process for electing IRP SCC members has caused the aforesaid. Should I start writing about the aforesaid who have the most clout, who reject the most planks in the Republican Party platform, who have done the most to destroy those like me who support those planks, who use the current system for electing IRP SCC members to stay in power, who had me removed from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee? – Dave Diersen

A bill that would’ve banned sales of pot-like delta-8 products sailed through the Illinois Senate, but never made it to the floor of the state House.

— Sen. Dick Durbin can help reverse the decline of American press freedom. Durbin chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is considering a bipartisan bill to enact a press shield law. Durbin is a co-sponsor of the bill, but has yet to schedule it for a markup. (COMMENT: I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I should write about those who continue to blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party (IRP). I would focus on those who have their operatives and dupes destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me, most recently, removing me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee.)

My Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to turn my supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Illinois Republicans anxiously await the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) a) to issue a detailed press release on its State Convention and b) to post on its website its new platform and its 12 new resolutions. Those who dominate the IRP oppose direct election of IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members, oppose Dean White, and oppose conservative principles. Anticipate/expect that those who dominate the IRP will not only ignore/dismiss/belittle the party’s new platform and resolutions, they will get rid of IRP SCC members, county party leaders, township/ward party leaders, precinct committeemen/captains, voters, and everyone else a) who want direct election of IRP SCC members, who support Dean White, and/or who promote conservative principles. Conservatives overwhelmingly want direct election of IRP SCC members. Who were the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee members who stated that they are conservative but voted against direct election? I have promoted direct election of IRP SCC members and conservative principles, that is, the Republican Party platform, big time since 2000. Since 2000, party leaders who oppose direct election of IRP SCC members and/or oppose conservative principles have taken many big adverse actions against me because of that. I should write a book about that. – Dave Diersen

JOHN ZAHM
— Getting your own house in order. Some people came to Collinsville to the Illinois Republican Party Convention to limit grassroots Republicans voice and influence in the party. Others came to take selfies and pump up the appearance of their influence. Others cut deals to acquire positions and titles to benefit themselves. Daniel R. Zahm and I attended the Convention laser-focused on supporting policies and people who would represent grassroots conservative values and real reform for the Republican Party. After witnessing Committee Reports that had predetermined outcomes, and little substantive debate and discussion, we doubled down on our efforts promoting a great grassroots conservative leader Dean R. White – Illinois Republican State Central Committee. Insider party bosses like Laura Pollastrini and Larry Smith fought tooth and nail to defeat Dean. They supported and used rules and technicalities to make the process of overturning the National Committeeman-National Committeewoman vote of 10 people for Mark Shaw carry the weight over 494 Delegates nearly impossible. We would not stand for it and took the route of defeating the Committee report on the floor since they would not allow us to have a new vote on the floor between Shaw and White. In the end we succeeded. It was a team effort bringing together a group of just over 300 delegates who would not waver in the face of threats, demands, and insults. One HUGE victory. But many more to go. Many more stories to share. Patriots to thank. Bad actors to call out. But let’s start with this one right here. (Photo with Dean right after the victory).

DOUG IBENDAHL
— Rank-And-File outsmart Pompous Pooh-Bahs at IL GOP state convention (COMMENT: Far too many “Republican” party leaders and precinct committeemen are acting like they would rather see Biden elected than Trump. How many of them boycotted the Illinois Republican Party State Convention in Collinsville?)
https://dougelstonibendahl.substack.com/p/rank-and-file-outsmart-pompous-pooh
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This state convention was the most shamefully rigged and disrespectful to the Republican rank-and-file I’ve seen yet in the nearly 30 years I’ve been paying attention to this stuff. And I have always been the first to acknowledge there were certainly problems when I was the state party’s lawyer 25 years ago. But I learn from experience and when I see things are infinitely worse today, I work for meaningful positive change. I don’t double-down on a failed system which the average 5-year old can see has been a catastrophic disaster for the Illinois GOP. Unfortunately, that is not yet an attitude universally shared. And we’re now to the point where dishonesty, self-dealing and unprofessionalism are officially off the charts. And it all centers around a desperate desire by the pooh-bahs to keep the rank-and-file disenfranchised and voiceless in their own state party. The lengths some on the state central committee (SCC) and their bootlicks have been willing to go to keep Republicans from having a vote again has a lot of people scratching their heads. . .Meanwhile, my strong hunch is that the party pooh-bahs are taking no positive lessons from the clock-cleaning regular Republicans delivered on Saturday. If anything, the pooh-bahs are kicking themselves for leaving even a crack in the door which allowed the Republican rank-and-file to have ANY voice at this convention. They aren’t planning to loosen the rules, they’re surely planning to make them even MORE restrictive next time. Not sure that would even be possible, but if there is a way to further squelch the voice of their constituents, I’m sure they’ll find it. It’s about all they do. Anyone who still doesn’t understand why our vote must be restored for our state party’s central committee, the governing board, really needs to do us all a favor and find a new hobby. I mean come on, seriously, no one can truly be that oblivious.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Grassroots Dominate IL GOP State Convention and Expand Influence as State Party Leaders Lose Their Cool (COMMENT: Far too many “Republican” party leaders and precinct committeemen are acting like they would rather see Biden elected than Trump. How many of them boycotted the Illinois Republican Party State Convention in Collinsville?)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/05/grassroots-dominate-il-gop-state-convention-and-expand-influence-as-state-party-leaders-lose-their-cool.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Saturday, the influential conservative grassroots base of the Illinois Republican Party scored major victories during the GOP State Convention in Collinsville – as delegates from across the state elected Dean White as the new Republican national committeeman and Donald Trump-endorsed U.S. Rep. Mary Miller, (IL-15) as the Illinois Delegation Chair to nominate President Trump at the RNC Convention in Milwaukee. The state convention did not lack drama, as state party officials tried their best to maintain power and protect their own establishment-supported candidates. . .But the drama was not over as late Friday night, embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy withdrew himself from the running to be the Illinois Delegation Chair to nominate President Donald Trump at the RNC Convention in Milwaukee, after realizing that the room full of delegates was not on his side. Tracy then supported Miller, who is grassroots and a crowd favorite who was endorsed by President Trump in her re-election to Congress, in her bid to become the delegation chair. Rhonda Belford was also elected as the new RNC National Committeewoman. Many IL GOP officials continue to blame this publication for publishing articles critical of the establishment-base of the party – and that anger towards Illinois Review was on full display during the convention.)

— What Entry-Level Jobs Really Look Like Today. – Lindsay Ellis and Kara Dapena (COMMENT: GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, to get rid of me, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates rudely treated me as though I was a GS-4 (currently $39,488/year) entry level employee. They ignored/dismissed/belittled the fact that I had a) worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels (currently $97,079-$110,020/year), b) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and d) almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

The BCRCC has been steadfast in the cause of conservative liberty over the years and we anticipate the start of our next term as we continue this mission together with Idaho voters. – CHRISTOPHER COOK and KELLY GOLDEN (COMMENT: Since 1999, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party have urged Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct to not encourage me to help elect them. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I am “too conservative” and even worse things and that because of that, the more that do to help elect them, the more votes that they will lose. Further, they stress my bad demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

— What steered you away from vices, poverty, and crime? What steered you toward your successes in life? For me, it was my parents who were conservative Republicans who stressed personal responsibility and becoming a productive member of society. They had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL), raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL. Even though neither of them attended college and my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma and my mother never attended high school, their upbringing of me motivated/enabled me to work my way through college and earn a bachelor’s degree, three masters degrees, six professional certifications, and a professional license. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— PARTY POLITICS: Illinois Republicans united behind former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign during their state convention in Collinsville over the weekend. They also got behind a platform that attacks Democrats for supporting abortion rights, eliminating cash bail and promoting transgender identity, according to the Tribune’s Rick Pearson and Jeremy Gorner. Cheering for Trump: “Joe Biden’s vision for the country and JB Pritzker’s vision for the state is, it’s a disaster, and may I say, even that it’s evil,” Congresswoman Mary Miller, a member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, said during the conference. Roll call: Miller was also elected to be the delegation leader of Illinois and could be the voice we hear during roll call to support Trump at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. There was drama: The election to determine the new Republican National Committee members became divisive. An election had to be held because current members Richard Porter and Demetra DeMonte will see their terms come up at the end of the convention. How it played out: Republican State Central Committeeman Dean White was elected to replace Porter after Lake County GOP Chair Mark Shaw was twice rejected during voting on the convention floor. Shaw dropped out, opening the lane for White. Rhonda Belford, the Hardin County GOP chair, will replace DeMonte after the convention. “There are always going to be disagreements. You see that among Democrats, too,” DeMonte told Playbook after the convention. Her take: “There wasn’t any disunity.” If you are Mark Shaw, Playbook would like to hear from you.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Illinois Republicans anxiously await the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) a) to issue a detailed press release on its State Convention and b) to post on its website its new platform and its 12 new resolutions. At the convention, there was very strong support for Trump and for Dean White for IRP National Committeeman, but there were very few delegates from DuPage County. IRP chairman Don Tracy spoke vehemently against direct election of IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members. Many of the delegates who I spoke with had been strongly lobbied by opponents of direct election against direct election. Tracy’s IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee (PRC) killed direct election. Illinois Republicans who want direct election are overwhelmingly conservative. Illinois Republicans who oppose direct election are overwhelming moderate, that is, they reject some, many, most, if not all the planks in the Republican Party platform. It seems that to get PRC members to kill direct election, those who oppose direct election a) loaded the PRC with members who oppose direct election or could be made to oppose direct election and b) dumped efforts to move the platform to the left. I was appointed to the PRC even though I have always promoted direct election. But that appointment was made before those who oppose direct election knew that major efforts were going to be made to promote direct election. Therefore, because of that, I was removed from the PRC before its first meeting. The Democrat news media at the convention again demonstrated its rudeness and hostility toward me. I have attended as a delegate and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor all the IRP State Conventions since 2000. The 2020 convention was by Zoom. The last big push for direct election was at the 2008 convention. – Dave Diersen

The leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization ever-increasingly blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. They ever-increasingly blame me and blame my newsletters for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. They stress that I promote direct election of IRP State Central Committee members. They stress that I promote planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including its personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. They stress my bad demographics: conservative, Republican, American, White, male, old, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America for a long time. They stress the many big adverse actions that they have taken against me, most recently, removing me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee.

— IL GOP’s Grassroots ride Dean White into the Winner’s Circle in Collinsville, IL. Could this be a turning point for the IL GOP?
https://jeffberkowitz208.substack.com/p/il-gops-grassroots-ride-dean-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yesterday, about 300 “Grassroots” county delegates to the IL GOP convention overcame strong recent GOP historical precedent and took control of the Party, at least for an afternoon. The grassroots wrested control away from the Establishment IL GOP State Central Committee (“SCC”). Usually, the seventeen member SCC chooses the IL RNC Committeeman and Committeewoman and the delegates in attendance at the convention docilely ratify the choice, almost proforma. But, not yesterday. Choice of a new IL GOP RNC Committeeman. This weekend, about five hundred IL Republicans gathered in Collinsville, IL to choose their new IL RNC committeeman and committeewoman to serve on the 168 member Republican National Committee, as IL committeeman Richard Porter, watch by clicking here (12 (10?) years of service) and IL committeewoman Demetra Demonte (16 years of service) were both term limited from continuing on the RNC. The main job of an RNC committeeman is to be the link or nexus between the state GOP and the RNC on national campaigns. Large elements of that nexus include national fundraising, message development and political organizing, especially for the national Presidential and mid-term elections. The primary interest of the IL GOP grassroots is the recruiting and election of quality state and local candidates and a party apparatus related thereto, not a national committeeman. But the symbolism and precedent of yesterday’s reversal of the establishment SCC was important to the grassroots, and they seemed to shout, as they descended on Collinsville, Carpe Diem, sensing victory would be theirs. On the other hand, get a sense of what could happen if these two often divergent parts of the IL GOP worked together— by watching RNC Committeeman Porter, linked to above (18:58-19:58), as he explains more than three years ago, the potential interaction between IL State operators, GOP U. S. Senators, the entire Congress and the RNC to solve Illinois’ fiscal issues, including the need to lower public sector pension and education costs— and taxes to make IL more fiscally stable and attractive in the long run to taxpayers and residents. . .Rhonda Belford, GOP Chair of Hardin County, was the SCC’s choice over Joan Lasonde for IL GOP Committeewoman, and Belford was easily approved by the Delegates in the Hall. Lasonde, residing on Chicago’s North Shore, is the 9th CD member of the SCC. The next steps for the IL GOP. So, we’ll find out in due course if Dean White, who is a bit of an unknown commodity in IL GOP politics, is everything the grassroots hope he will be. More importantly, we will no doubt learn soon if the SCC has learned how to make effective use of the grassroots’ energy to start producing some general election wins, perhaps even for IL Governor, since the stakes for IL are so high. And, many in the IL GOP almost surely will start chanting that familiar phrase: “Now is the time for all good men [and women] to come to the aid of their Party.”)

AUSTIN AMERICAN STATEMAN
— Texas Republican convention shows ultraconservative flank still controls the party. The dueling themes of party unity and purging the GOP of “RINOs” were the subplots of the Texas State Republican Convention. – John C. Moritz (COMMENT: One could compare and contrast the Texas Republican Party with the Illinois Republican Party. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. RINOs paint themselves as being Democrat-Lite if not as being anti-conservative. RINOs reject some, many, most, if not virtually all the planks in the Republican Party platform. RINOs get rid of Republicans like me who support the planks that they reject. I should write a book about the biggest past and present RINO candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I made a big decision in January of this year,” Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller told the cheering delegates Saturday as the three-day Texas State Republican Convention was heading into its final hours. “I announced that I was declaring open season on RINOs with no bag limits.” Miller, an irrepressible conservative who likes to bill himself as “Donald Trump’s man in Texas,” was referring to that strain of the GOP faithful that has been castigated as “Republicans In Name Only” because of a willingness to sometimes seek common ground with Texas’ minority party. His remarks, which were presaged by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Attorney General Ken Paxton, came in the final weekend before Tuesday’s runoffs, in which several Republican members of the state House — including Speaker Dade Phelan, who in the minds of many of the delegates and some of the GOP officeholders is Texas’ RINO-in-chief — are fighting for their political lives in the face of challengers backed by deep-pocket conservative donors and an army of activists from the party’s right flank. That right flank emerged as the dominant force among the almost 10,000 delegates and alternates who chose to spend at least the first part of their holiday weekend shaping the future of the Texas Republican Party, which has held unchecked power in the state for more than two decades.)

— ILLINOIS GOP EMBRACES TRUMP AT STATE CONVENTION AS LIBERTARIANS CHALLENGE HIS VIEWS IN CHICAGO SPEECH – Damon R. Sheffield (COMMENT: I should write a book about those Libertarian plants in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me since 2000. Libertarians promote booze, gambling, pot, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, etc.)
https://hoodline.com/2024/05/illinois-gop-embraces-trump-at-state-convention-as-libertarians-challenge-his-views-in-chicago-speech/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Republicans threw their full weight behind former President Donald Trump during their state convention this past Saturday, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. The GOP adopted a platform that fiercely criticized Democrats for their stance on abortion rights, bail reform, and transgender issues. U.S. Rep. Mary Miller did not hold back in her condemnation of President Joe Biden and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, calling their vision for the country and state “a disaster” and even labelling it “evil.”. . . The dichotomy of the two events emphasizes the divisive figure Trump continues to represent, even within varied conservative circles. Illinois Republicans, particularly in rural regions, remain staunchly pro-Trump, with GOP Chair Don Tracy suggesting that Republican enthusiasm for the former president was on the rise. Meanwhile, Trump’s reception at the Libertarian convention exposes the frictions within a party known for its commitment to individual liberties and small government—a party where some view Trump as antithetical to their values. The Illinois GOP’s adopted platform attacks Democrats on a number of fronts, including abortion, law enforcement, and election integrity, according to the Chicago Tribune. They vehemently oppose the state’s pro-abortion laws and have added new language to their platform on gender identity, aligning closely with Trump’s traditional conservative views. Their actions signal an intention to fiercely fight to regain a foothold in suburbia, despite the potential risks of alienating moderate voters with their undiluted embrace of Trump.)

— Democrats say “How Donald Trump Still Lives in the 1980s. The greed-is-good era was the last time his preferred public image was intact, and he’s been returning there in ways large and small as he sits through his criminal trial in Manhattan.” What did you do during the 1980s? I worked as an Analyst for the Democrats who ran GAO. In 1980, I completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. In 1981, I passed the Certified Internal Auditor on my first attempt and became a licensed CPA. In 1984, my wife and I had own home built in Wheaton. In 1986, the GAO manager who had arranged for my transfer from IRS was finally able to get me assigned to audits of IRS and to promote me to GS-13, currently $115,439/year. But my Democrat GAO superiors forced him to retire in 1987. In 1988, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. In 1989, in retaliation, they threw me off audits of IRS, gave me a very bad job assignment and performance appraisal, and ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois Republicans go all in for Trump at state convention – RICK PEARSON and JEREMY GORNER (COMMENT: Illinois Republicans anxiously await the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) a) to issue a detailed press release on the convention and b) to post on its website its new platform and its 12 new resolutions. At the convention, there was very strong support for Trump and for Dean White for IRP National Committeeman, but there very few delegates were from DuPage County. IRP chairman Don Tracy spoke vehemently against direct election of IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members. Many of the delegates who I spoke with had been strongly lobbied by opponents of direct election against direct election. Tracy’s IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee (PRC) killed direct election. Illinois Republicans who want direct election are overwhelmingly conservative. Illinois Republicans who oppose direct election are overwhelming moderate, that is, they reject some, many, most, if not all the planks in the Republican Party platform. It seems that to get PRC members to kill direct election, those who oppose direct election a) loaded the PRC with members who oppose direct election or could be made to oppose direct election and b) dumped efforts to move the platform to the left. I was appointed to the PRC even though I have always promoted direct election. But that appointment was made before those who oppose direct election knew that major efforts were going to be made to promote direct election. Therefore, I was removed from the PRC before its first meeting. The Democrat news media at the convention again demonstrated its hostility toward me. I have attended as a delegate and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor all the IRP State Conventions since 2000. The 2020 convention was by Zoom. The last big push for direct election was at the 2008 convention.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/05/25/illinois-republicans-go-all-in-for-trump-at-state-convention/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state GOP party platform has long opposed same-sex marriage, though its been almost a decade since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down bans against those unions. On Saturday, the party added a plank “confirming the immutable biological sex of humans and the protection of women” and opposing gender treatments as well as “all efforts to validate transgender identity,” The platform adopted by more than 500 delegates at the convention also attacked the Democratic Party for eliminating cash bail, contending it “opposes law and order and law enforcement.” . . . The only contentious note in the festivities occurred when former Lake County GOP chairman Mark Shaw was twice overwhelmingly rejected in votes from the convention floor in his bid to become the state’s new Republican National Committeeman, replacing Richard Porter, who is term limited. Shaw, a Trump delegate and a “senior adviser” to the presidential candidate, has a controversial party history. Once viewed as a grassroots supporter, his attempts to maneuver into the RNC job were rejected by delegates who viewed him as too establishment. Dean White of St. Charles, a construction company owner and a member of the Republican State Central Committee, was ultimately named national committeeman after Shaw dropped out. Hardin County GOP Chair Rhonda Belford, who chairs the Republican County Chairs’ Association, was voted as national committeewoman, replacing Demetra DeMonte.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— GOP UNITY: The Illinois Republican Party is holding its state convention today and Saturday in the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. After eight years of divisiveness among the rank and file, party leaders hope to emerge united as they head into election season. No matter where they stand on Donald Trump, they agree on wanting to make Joe Biden a one-term president. “We’re at a pivotal point where you’re seeing Republicans starting to get back together,” Illinois GOP Executive Director Matthew Janes told Playbook. “You’re seeing a lot more unity recently.” The Illinois GOP has evolved much the way the national Republican party has, with right-leaning Republicans veering more right and centrists somehow being seen as being left on party issues. In Illinois, the shift has been geographic. In 2014, the Republican base was strong in Chicago’s suburbs and exurbs, while southern Illinois still saw Democrats have an influence in party politics. That’s all shifted: When Trump came on the scene, rural voters were drawn to his blue collar message and there was a shift in the state party’s cultural and economic bases. Chicago-area Republicans weren’t always in line with Trump. And many still aren’t. Embracing Trump: Illinois GOP National Committeeman Richard Porter was among those hoping to see a new Republican generation in the White House. He backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president. Now, he says he’s most concerned about taking back the White House from Democrats. “I am for winning. Trump is our nominee and the Democrats have behaved appallingly in regard to Trump so it’s not hard to support him,” Porter told Playbook, referring to the former president’s recent court fight in New York. That attitude is expected to prevail in Collinsville this weekend, where the biggest task is to line up behind a party platform and elect a new Republican committee man and committee woman to represent the state within the national Republican Convention (The party elects one man and one woman to those seats.). Why the change: Term limits are keeping Porter and Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte from running again. They have each served two terms. In the running for their seats: GOP state central committee members Mark Shaw and Dean White and Illinois Republican Finance Committee Chair Vince Kolber. Shaw is also an Illinois adviser to Trump’s campaign. Women candidates are State Central Committee members Joan Lasonde and Rhonda Belford, and former Republican legislative candidate Julie Cho. All of the candidates are right-leaning, Trump-supporting Republicans. If you are Demetra DeMonte, Playbook would like to hear from you. Email skapos@politico.com )

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Trump putting his finger on the scale to revamp GOP platform four years after it froze in time – Elaine Mallon (COMMENT: Those who oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a far-right conservative. Since 2015, they have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a Trump-promoter. I should write a book about those who oppose direct elect election of IRP SCC members and who oppose Trump and who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/presidential/3015947/trump-revamp-gop-platform-after-it-froze-in-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump campaign is pushing to elect those closely aligned with the presumptive presidential nominee’s agenda to positions on the Republican National Committee‘s Platform Committee. Much of this effort by former President Donald Trump’s campaign relates to concerns that far-right conservatives will push stances on abortion and same-sex marriage that may alienate the general population just ahead of the general election. The RNC’s Platform Committee consists of a male and a female representative from each U.S. state and territory, and it will play an instrumental role in shaping the party’s stances on dozens of policy issues. The party’s current platform is a 66-page document that hasn’t been reviewed since the 2016 election. In 2020, the RNC passed a resolution stating it would not adopt a new platform, pointing to the COVID-19 pandemic interfering with the party’s ability to hold meetings. That year marked the first time in more than 150 years that the RNC decided not to make adjustments to its official platform, per NBC News. Shiree Verdone served as co-chairwoman of Trump’s campaign in Arizona in both 2016 and 2020 but is no longer involved with the Republican Party of Arizona. She told the outlet that Trump’s team is concerned about who is getting on the party’s platform committee. “Trying to get normal folks on the Platform and Rules [committees], but God knows if there’s any normal people in that delegation,” Verdone said. The committee’s leadership consists of strong Trump supporters, including Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg, Randy Evans, who will serve as executive director. Russ Vought, Trump’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, will serve as policy director, and Ed Martin, the head of several conservative groups, will serve as deputy policy director. “The campaign is really getting into it and involved this year in [Platform Committee] races in states,” a veteran Republican operative told the outlet. “There is a sense among them that the platform should not be pushed too far to the right on a few issues, but I keep hearing abortion and marriage specifically.” While far-right conservatives have called for a national ban on abortion, Trump has been steadfast in his stance that the matter will be left up to the states. “I DO NOT SUPPORT A BAN ON BIRTH CONTROL, AND NEITHER WILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!” Trump declared on Truth Social.)

— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What do you hope that Illinois Republican Party (IRP) leaders will stress at their State Convention in Collinsville May 24-25? I hope that they will stress defending and advancing the Republican Party platform, and especially its personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I hope that they will stress direct election of IRP State Central Committee members. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— On Saturday, May 25, 2024, delegates to the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention in Collinsville will be asked to vote on a new IRP platform and a new set of resolutions. But so far, the IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee has not provided delegates with drafts of the aforesaid. If I had not been removed from the committee because of my calling for strengthening the platform, including calling for E-Verify, and because of my calling for direct election of IRP State Central Committee members, I would have called for the committee to provide delegates with drafts of the new draft platform and the new draft set of resolutions by now. Further, I would have called for the IRP to provide delegates with a detailed agenda for the convention’s May 25 general session by now. – Dave Diersen

MRC TV & NEWS BUSTERS
— MSNBC’s host Joy Reid pounced on a since-deleted video posted to former President Trump’s Truth Social account. The video – made by a third party – briefly flashed the words “unified Reich” in a series of newspaper clippings. Reid characterized the post as a definitive representation of Trump’s fascist views, and ridiculously suggested that no one in the media was talking about it and that no one was calling him a Nazi. In addition, she repeatedly referenced several fascist leaders, especially Adolf Hitler, and accused other conservatives of relentlessly promoting fascist thought through their opinions and policies. After playing the now-deleted campaign ad, Reid ridiculously proclaimed: “As per usual, much of the media is downplaying the fact that the Republican nominee is once again using Nazi language.” She drew attention to some of Trump’s associations and past comments, claiming they indubitably prove he was just like Hitler. She even said, “Donald Trump was proud that someone once compared him to Adolf Hitler.” The someone Reid referred to was former German Chancellor Angela Merkel who once praised Trump’s ability to attract large crowds. – Michael Wnek (COMMENT: Because of the path that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters are ever-increasingly taking, anticipate/expect that if you do not share their hatred against Trump, that the more demographics that you share with Trump, that the more that they will call you a Nazi.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION
— Rebuilding the Illinois GOP – Jon A. Zahm
https://illinoisfamilyaction.org/2024/05/rebuilding-the-illinois-rebuilding-the-illinois-gop-2024/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: By Allowing EVERY GOP Primary Voter an Equal Vote for Party Leadership When you donate money to the Illinois Republican Party to fight back against President Joe Biden, Governor JB Pritzker, and the supermajority of liberal Democrats in both chambers of the General Assembly, how are the funds spent? It is up to a 17-member governing board, the State Central Committee (SCC), one person from each Congressional District chosen by party insiders ranging from Precinct Committeemen to Township Committeemen to County Chairmen. These 17 then elect a State Party Chairman and also control which staff is hired and which political consultants and vendors receive lucrative contracts. And this small group of 17 determines the policies, issues, and communications that go out under the Party name. They act similar to a company’s board of directors. By contrast, every Democrat voter votes directly for their State Central Committeeman. And they have been beating us consistently in elections since 1986 when a few party bosses, like now-disgraced Speaker Dennis Hastert and RINO IL House Minority Leader Lee Daniels conspired to change the rules and limit grassroots voting rights. Only Precinct Committeemen in Illinois, under the current rules, can vote. Not a single Republican voter within that precinct is allowed to vote on those who make up the powerful State Central Committee. That must change. What about all the other good Republicans who live in those precincts? They are disenfranchised. No vote for them for SCC. If a company refused to allow their shareholders/stakeholders to vote on who the Board of Directors are, they would be sanctioned and even jailed. (From IbendahlonPolitics.com) Our Party currently operates this inside-deal system that lacks transparency and does not respect the people who make up their broad base. Those who work hard, raise their families, and pay taxes – the same good folks who don’t always have the time to do a lot of local politics. I first got involved as a leader of this movement when my mentor, former State Senator and current Kane County Treasurer, Chris Lauzen, introduced Senate Bill 600 in 2009 to reform a party then dominated by corrupt power players like Gov. George Ryan. It passed 44-13 only to die in the Illinois House where later convicted fixer Mike Madigan, and Tom Cross, made sure it did not get a vote. Don’t let our vote on this be taken away forever. Stand for Reform. Stand for Principle. Stand for an open party that welcomes people who identify as Republicans. Do the right thing. Everyone should have one vote. That is the American and Constitutional way. This is the Resolution that will be considered this Friday, May 24th, at 10 AM by the Platform and Resolutions Committee at the 2024 IL GOP Convention in Collinsville. We ask each member to endorse this, or, if not, at least vote it to the Convention Floor so all delegates in attendance can have a say-so. To add your name and title to our list as a supporter please send me an email to goliathslayers@gmail.com. The decision on Direct Elections will be made Saturday, May 25. The 25th new name I receive will be thanked by me making a $25 donation to the charity of their choice. I can also be texted/called at 630-946-8683 (630-WIN-VOTE). My main page is Jon A Zahm on Facebook. Click HERE for a growing list of Republican and conservative organizations who have endorsed the Resolution to give every Republican primary voter a right to vote for Party leadership. If passed, this will occur every 4 years beginning in March of 2026 on the Republican Primary ballot. Each of the 17 Congressional Districts will elect one man or one woman for these important party posts that decide how to spend party dollars, how to win elections and how to help all Republicans win. IFA’s devoted and excellent leader David E. Smith is a longtime supporter of Direct Elections. Thank you and May God Bless You!)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— What You Need to Know Before the Illinois GOP Convention – Thomas Mccullagh
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/05/what-you-need-to-know-before-the-illinois-gop-convention.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois State Republican Convention is fast approaching, set to take place on Friday, May 24, and Saturday, May 25, at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, IL. This event will gather Republicans from across the state for networking, socializing, training, and learning opportunities. However, beyond these activities, the convention holds significant importance as it offers delegates a unique opportunity to influence the direction of the party for the next four years. The main tasks will include adopting a new platform and electing Illinois representatives to the Republican National Committee (RNC). Understanding the rules and mechanics of the convention is vital for those attending. The opportunity for grassroots participants and delegates to impact the party’s direction is scheduled for only 3.5 hours on Saturday afternoon. This brief window makes it essential for delegates to be well-versed in the rules. Without this knowledge, decisions about the platform and the selection of RNC members could be dominated by those who wrote the rules, rather than by the delegates themselves. The first order of business at the convention will be adopting the Rules of Order. These rules are crucial as they determine how officers are nominated and elected, how the platform is approved and adopted, and much more. Essentially, the adopted rules will decide who gets their voices heard and who has the power to influence key decisions. Prior to the convention, several committees controlled by the State Central Committee will meet to propose rules. These committees are tasked with various responsibilities and include the Convention Committee on Credentials, the Convention Committee on Platform and Resolutions, the Convention Committee on Rules and Procedures, the Convention Committee on Arrangements, the Convention Committee on At-Large Delegates and Alternates, the Convention Committee on Presidential Electors, and the Convention Committee to Nominate National Committeeman and National Committeewoman. Among these, the committees on Platform and Resolutions, Rules and Procedures, and Nominations are particularly influential. They will establish the platform, propose the rules of the convention, and nominate members to the RNC. When the convention begins, the first task will be to adopt the rules proposed by the Rules and Procedures committee. This step is critical because it sets the framework for how the rest of the convention will operate. For delegates who wish to challenge the proposed rules, the time to act is when the convention is called to order. According to the current bylaws of the Illinois Republican Party ( https://illinois.gop/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/Amended-Bylaws-as-approved-April-25-2020.pdf ), specifically Articles VI and VII, the convention itself has the authority to set its own rules. This means that unless delegates propose and adopt alternate rules at the opening of the convention, the rules proposed by the Rules and Procedures committee will be enacted. These rules will then govern the adoption of the platform and the nomination and election of members to the RNC. Per Article VII (H) of the bylaws, the proposed convention rules must be published on the Illinois Republican Party website and made available in printed form to each delegation chair forty-eight hours before the convention opens. With the general business session starting at 11:30 AM on Saturday, the rules should be published by 11:30 AM on Thursday. Delegates must review these rules ahead of time to be prepared to propose alternatives if necessary. Being familiar with the proposed rules is imperative for any delegate wishing to make an impact. Grassroots delegates who want to influence the convention must be well-prepared and informed about the proposed rules. The convention’s first order of business is to adopt these rules, so understanding and being ready to discuss them is crucial. Without this preparation, the rules will likely be set by the State Central Committee, potentially advancing their agenda over that of the delegates. Delegates are encouraged to read the bylaws and consult Robert’s Rules on Rules of Order for Conventions and on Nominations. Understanding these rules ensures that all voices can be heard and that the convention’s outcomes reflect the wishes of the delegates. The Convention Committee on Credentials verifies the credentials of all delegates and alternates, ensuring that those participating in the convention are duly authorized representatives. The Convention Committee on Platform and Resolutions is responsible for drafting and proposing the party platform and any resolutions. The platform outlines the party’s principles and policy positions. The Convention Committee on Rules and Procedures proposes the rules that will govern the convention’s operations. These rules will dictate how the convention is conducted, including how votes are taken and how debates are managed. The Convention Committee on Arrangements handles the logistical aspects of the convention, including venue setup, scheduling, and ensuring that all necessary materials and resources are available. The Convention Committee on At-Large Delegates and Alternates selects delegates and alternates who will represent Illinois at the national level. The Convention Committee on Presidential Electors nominates individuals who will serve as electors in the Electoral College should the party’s presidential candidate win the general election in Illinois. The Convention Committee to Nominate National Committeeman and National Committeewoman nominates candidates for Illinois’ representatives to the Republican National Committee. To effectively participate in the convention, delegates should take several preparatory steps. Reviewing the bylaws is essential as they provide the framework for the convention. Familiarizing oneself with these bylaws, particularly Articles VI and VII, is crucial. Understanding Robert’s Rules is also important as they provide the procedural basis for conducting meetings and making decisions. Delegates should understand these rules to effectively navigate the convention’s proceedings. Staying informed is another critical step. The proposed rules will be published on the Illinois Republican Party website, and delegates should review these rules as soon as they are available to be prepared to propose any necessary changes. Engaging with other delegates before and during the convention can help build coalitions and gather support for proposed rule changes or platform amendments. The Illinois State Republican Convention is a pivotal event for party members. It provides a rare opportunity to shape the party’s future direction. However, to make the most of this opportunity, delegates must be well-prepared and informed about the convention’s rules and procedures. By understanding and being ready to engage with the rules, delegates can ensure that their voices are heard and that the convention’s outcomes reflect their collective will. This preparation will help ensure a fair and democratic process that truly represents the interests of all participants.)

— Which candidates on ballots in your precinct have you done the most to help elect? I should write a book about the candidates on ballots in my precinct who I have done the most to help elect since 2000. I would focus on a) the signatures that I got for them for their nominating petitions, b) the sign locations that I got for them, c) their campaign literature that I distributed for them, and d) the promotion that I gave their fundraisers.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Should I write about my critics/opponents who do bad things that get into the public record and then punish me for my not covering that up? According to Wikipedia, “A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrongdoing, error, incompetence, or other embarrassing information. Research has distinguished personal cover-ups (covering up one’s own misdeeds) from relational cover-ups (covering up someone else’s misdeeds). The expression is usually applied to people in positions of authority who abuse power to avoid or silence criticism or to deflect guilt of wrongdoing. Perpetrators of a cover-up (initiators or their allies) may be responsible for a misdeed, a breach of trust or duty, or a crime.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover-up – Dave Diersen

I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.
