— AUGUST 4, 1997 FLASHBACK: DEPRESSION-ERA PROJECT HAUNTS CONSOLIDATION EFFORT – Bob Merrifield
(COMMENT: When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1997-08-04-9708040150-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Walt Williams, president of the Lincolnshire Country Club, sees the subdivision that never was as a historical relic. “At the time, a four-golf-course complex was planned,” Williams said. “Three of the four got built. Two are still in existence. “They were trying to make it into a resort community. I believe the Depression ended all that.” Esther Diersen of Crete, who owns one of the 40-foot lots, said she believes most owners have held on to the land for sentimental reasons or because it may eventually increase in value. Her lot was bought in the 1920s by an aunt of her late husband. “When Lincolnshire Country Club first started, everyone bought a small lot like that. For some reason I kept thinking it might be something the kids could realize something from. That’s the only reason I still have it.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220105/it-has-no-place-how-a-mundelein-area-woman-is-deleting-a-painful-relic-of-race-and-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For 40 years beginning in the late 1920s, it was not uncommon for restrictive covenant clauses to prohibit the sale or lease of property to certain racial or ethnic groups. That practice became illegal and unenforceable with the passage of the federal Housing Rights Act in 1968. But the offensive language has remained. Many property owners are unaware of such references in covenants associated with their property. And those who are have found it difficult to have them deleted.)

— 84% of Voters: Public Schools Should Teach Truth About Slavery – Scott Rasmussen
(COMMENT: According to this article, “42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy.” What percent of your school board members agree that schools should teach that “America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy?” What are the following doing to fight CRT, 1619, reparations, BLM, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination: a) Republican members of your school board, b) the leaders your Republican township/ward/county party organizations, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, d) the IRP leaders, e) Republican leaders of your chamber of commerce, park district, municipality, township, and county, f) your Republican state representative and state senator, g) etc.?)
https://www.newsmax.com/scottrasmussen/public-schools-slavery-founding/2022/01/06/id/1051337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters believe public schools should teach the truth about slavery. At the same time, a Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 81% believe public schools should teach that America was founded on the ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. Combining the results shows that 72% of voters believe both should be taught. Another question found that 42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy. Forty-four percent (44%) disagree. Overall, 40% believe students should be taught that America was founded on noble ideals, but not that the nation was founded on racism. Thirty percent (30%) believe both should be taught. Eleven percent (11%) say that the noble ideals should be taught and are not sure about racism. Nine percent (9%) believe schools should teach that the nation was founded on racism but not that it was founded upon noble ideals. Finally, 64% believe that schools should teach that America is a force for good in the world. Fifteen percent (15%) disagree and 21% are not sure. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of those who support Trump-like policies believe that students should be taught that America is a force for good. So do 73% of traditional Democrats and 70% of traditional Republicans. However, among those who support policies like those of Senator Bernie Sanders, just 42% think students should learn that America is a force for good. Thirty percent (30%) of Sanders’ supporters say that positive message should not be taught while 28% are not sure. Given a choice between four presidential candidates with equal skills and temperament, 31% would prefer a Republican who supported policies like those of President Trump. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% would prefer a Democrat who supported policies similar to Senator Bernie Sanders, 19% favor a more traditional Democrat, and 17% a more traditional Republican.)

ALTON TELEGRAPH
— County board trims 34 precincts. State-required change will save election costs. – Scott Cousins
(COMMENT: I only learned of precinct consolidation in Illinois this morning. I erroneously relied on the following to advise me of such things: the DuPage County Election Division (DCED), my representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization. I understand that at its January 11, 2022 meeting, the DuPage County Board will vote to consolidate DuPage County’s 930 precincts into just 607, a loss of 323 precincts. That includes consolidating Milton Township’s 130 precincts into just 83, a loss of 47 precincts. I have asked DCED to email me the new map for Milton Township and the map for the new precinct that I am in. I should write a book about the 2015 Gerrymandering of my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton.)
https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Board-reduces-precincts-in-response-to-new-state-16729105.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Madison County Board has approved a new precinct map that reduces the number of precincts to 191 from the current 225. The board took the action after new state laws were signed in mid-November by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The changes were approved at a special Madison County Board meeting Thursday night. The new map was approved unanimously 21-0, with seven members absent, two participating remotely and one open seat. The changes are the last to be completed as part of the decennial census. In November the board approved a new Madison County Board district map cutting the board size by three to 26 members. “Reducing the total number of election precincts by consolidating 225 into 191 will save taxpayers 15 percent on every election held in Madison County,” said Madison County Board Member Chris Guy, R-Maryville, who chairs the Government Relations Committee. “Not only will a reduction result in cost-savings to the taxpayers, a reduction will also bring more efficiency and integrity to the election process.” The new law requires precincts to be “as near as may be practicable, 1,200 registered voters,” according to information provided by Guy. Prior to that the number was 500 registered voters per precinct. The new state law also requires precinct maps to be approved by Jan. 14, the day after candidates are allowed to begin collecting signatures to get on the 2022 ballot. The full county board took the precinct action after a special meeting by the Government Relations Committee, which approved the new precinct maps.)

FORBES
— Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Retirement Pay Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History – Adam Andrzejewski
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $132,845/year in today’s dollars. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,864/year today a) because my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old, b) because my Democrat IRS superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-12, c) because my Democrat GAO superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-13, and d) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and had worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and had almost a year of unused sick leave. Generally, you reach the 80% limitation when you have worked for the federal government for 42 years not including accumulated sick leave; that would have been 2010 for me. 80% of GS-13 Step 10 salary is $106,276/year. 80% of GS-14 Step 10 salary is $125,583/year. 80% of GS-15 Step 10 salary and Senior Executive Service salary is $138,000/year.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/12/28/dr-anthony-faucis-retirement-pay-will-exceed-350000-per-year–the-largest-in-us-federal-government-history/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee. For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019. . .Federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. . .So, at this point, we can use only the last three published years of his salary — 2018: $399,625; 2019: $417,608; and 2020: $434,312 — to calculate his potential retirement earnings. Dr. Fauci earned a total of $1.252 million from 2018-2020 in salary as a federal employee. If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745). However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%).

My 2022 Civil Service Retirement System pension will be $58,101/year. That is a) $2,739/year less than what my IRS salary was in 1972 in today’s dollars and b) only 43% what my GAO salary was in 1997 in today’s dollars.)

CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY
— MAY 19, 2014 FLASHBACK: A wealth of advice. Nearly $2 billion flowed through consultants in 2003-2004 federal elections. – Sandy Bergo
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have acted like they took advice from my critics/opponents a) to not read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to blame me and my newsletters for all their problems, for all your problems, for all my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Previously, my critics/opponents blamed what I did raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and my serving as a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2000-2004.)
https://publicintegrity.org/politics/elections/campaign-consultants/a-wealth-of-advice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the 2004 federal races, more than $1.85 billion flowed through a professional corps of consultants whose influence plays an important, though largely unexamined, role in the unrelenting escalation of campaign spending, a groundbreaking Center for Public Integrity study has found. The money going to these consultants amounted to more than half of the total spending by presidential candidates, national party committees, general election candidates for Congress, and so-called “527”s — independent political groups. The high cost of running for office raises concerns because fundraising demands can ultimately bind elected officials to special interest donors and lobbyists who help with fundraising — deepening the widely held perception that politicians serve the interests of large contributors over those of constituents. Potential candidates who can’t meet the fundraising demands are shut out.)
