POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Cook County Dems’ Super Tuesday – SHIA KAPOS
(COMMENT: The Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization do not have an “open process.”)
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2021/11/17/cook-county-dems-super-tuesday-495135
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There was pizza, beer and political drama last night as hundreds of Cook County Democrats gathered in restaurants and school classrooms on Chicago’s North Side to cast their ballots for candidates they want to endorse in 2022. Some wards are still counting, but Norwood Park and 38th Ward Democrats announced at about 10:30 p.m. that they’re endorsing Alexi Giannoulias for Illinois secretary of state, Tom Dart for another term as Cook County sheriff and Kari Steele for Cook County assessor — a surprise given she’s a South Sider competing against incumbent Fritz Kaegi. Official slating is Dec. 13 and 14. Talk about democracy at work. Last night’s pre-slating process was a far cry from the old days of backroom decision-making about who would appear on campaign literature and mailings. “Now we make decisions collectively and openly and everyone who’s involved in electing Democrats gets a say in the process,” Paul Rosenfeld, the 47th Ward Committeeman, told Playbook after leaving DePaul College Prep, where candidates spoke for up to five minutes and took questions from Democrats in the ward. Democrats from the 40th Ward were also in that slating. In all of the locations on the North Side, party members took a ballot before taking their seats and listening to the candidates. Everyone gave their elevator pitch about why they deserve an endorsement, including 14 water reclamation candidates — who gave an earful about flooding and “green infrastructure.” Even Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, who doesn’t have a challenger for 2022, went through the process. There was energy in the crowd and plenty of chatter about issues. “It was good to be together again talking about politics,” a Democrat from the 41st Ward said after leaving Dino’s Pizzeria, a joint owned by County Commissioner Kevin Morrison’s family and where beer and thin slice pizza was served (on the North Side no less). Democrats from the 39th and 50th wards were also at Dino’s. The open process for slating candidates has been a gradual change. It has nothing to do with new leadership in the state Democratic Party, which is also calling for more transparency. It’s come about because the patronage system, which was common as recently as 10 years ago, has ended. Ward bosses can’t hand out jobs, so they are looking for new ways to engage Democrats and keep them excited for volunteering. Being part of the decision process does that. And the beer helps.)
— Republican state Rep. Seth Lewis is running for the Illinois Senate’s 24th District seat. Lewis currently represents the 45th House District. “I love being the voice in Springfield for the communities that I currently represent,” Lewis said in a statement. “After the implementation of the new legislative maps, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to continue serving our region on a greater scale by running for the state Senate. My goal as an elected official remains to make Illinois a place where people want to live, not to leave.” – SHIA KAPOS

WASHINGTON POST
— Progressives can no longer cede school boards to the GOP. They should treat them as political arenas to fight — and win. – Katrina vanden Heuvel
(COMMENT: What percent of your school district’s board members are anti-law enforcement, anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-heterosexual, anti-traditional marriage/family, anti-non-poor people, anti-gun owners, anti-Christian, anti-Protestant, anti-Italian American, anti-German American, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/11/16/conservatives-school-boards-youngkin-crt-progressives/

FORTUNE
— It turns out women of color aren’t exactly ‘benefitting’ from diversity initiatives – ELLEN MCGIRT
(COMMENT: I should write a book those minorities, those women, and those who were younger than me who my Democrat GAO, IRS, and Post Office superiors promoted over me. All of them had less job-related work experience, less job-related education, and/or fewer job-related professional certification and/or licenses than I had. I would focus on those a) who my Democrat IRS superiors promoted to GS-13 over me 1975-1980 and b) those who my Democrat GAO superiors promoted to GS-14 over me 1980-1997. I would identify all the promotions that I applied for but was not selected. After my GAO mentor succeeded in promoting me in 1986, my Democrat GAO superiors a) forced him to retire in 1987, b) told me to never apply for a promotion again, c) threw me off audits of IRS, d) gave me bad job assignments, e) gave me unfair performance expectations, f) gave me unfair performance appraisals, g) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Previously, they had kept me off audits of IRS 1980-1985 and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

They hint/imply/argue/shout that instead of me, those jobs should have been given to minorities, females, those who were younger than me, LGBTQers, veterans, moderates, liberals, Trump-haters, non-married people, those who have less money than others, those who have dependents, those who have financial problems, those who have health problems, those who have less education, less work experience, fewer professional certifications, and/or no professional licenses, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, citizens of foreign countries, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, etc.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on a) leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, etc.; b) Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, etc.; c) conservative leaders; d) religious leaders; and e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, campaign volunteers, etc.)

— Gov. J.B. Pritzker dumps chair of board that oversees hiring and promotions at Illinois State Police – RAY LONG and DAN PETRELLA
(COMMENT: Extremely few of my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates had relevant work experience outside of GAO. Extremely few had experience working for other federal agencies. So of course, because GAO audits IRS and because I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year, they viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned my IRS experience. They succeeded in keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, that is, they succeeded in wasting my knowledge of IRS.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about Diersen v. GAO. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrats GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” a) to further punish me for my opposing their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) to further punish me for my becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, and c) to allow them to give my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate, which they did. Previously, they had given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987 who had hired me in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. In my book, I would focus on RINO federal elected officials in Illinois, their staff members, political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and staff members who sided with my Democrat GAO superiors.)

NIU TODAY
— New policies help bring diversity to incoming class
(COMMENT: I transferred from UIC to NIU in January of 1969 when I was 20 years old. If I was a 20 year old UIC student today, I doubt that NIU would admit me. My demographics are terrible. I am White, male, conservative, Republican, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German national origin, my parents were not poor, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. When NIU accepted me, I had been a part-time Park Forest Post Office employee since November of 1966, I had no debts, I owned a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, and I had a student draft deferment. I had just made it into the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School class and my ACT was only 24.)
https://www.niutoday.info/2021/10/04/new-policies-help-bring-diversity-to-incoming-class/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its first full year of utilizing test-free criteria for admissions and merit scholarships, NIU has attracted the most diverse incoming class in university history. Nearly 70% of all incoming freshmen identify as persons of color, with 38% identifying as Black, 21.5% as Hispanic, 4% as Asian and 6% as “other.” The remaining 30% identified as white. Among incoming students, 57% were the first in their family to attend college. “As a university that is committed to equity and inclusion, we are thrilled that we are becoming an institution of choice for all students,” said NIU President Dr. Lisa C. Freeman. “This demonstrates that our efforts to make NIU accessible and affordable to all students are working. A diverse campus is a healthier, more vibrant campus, so we want a student body that reflects the demographics of the region we serve – in terms of race, gender and socio-economic background.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— State Sen. Darren Bailey clobbers his opponents in the GOP primary race for governor, according to a Republican-focused poll obtained by Playbook. The five-question survey was conducted by Ogden & Fry Sunday and Monday among 404 respondents “selected by random sampling of likely Republican primary voters.” The margin of error for the poll is +/- 4.98 percent. Asked if the primary were held today, 33 percent of respondents said they would vote for Bailey, compared to 6 percent for entrepreneur Jesse Sullivan, 5 percent for businessman Gary Rabine, and 3 percent for former state Sen. Paul Schimpf. Nearly 50 percent, however, are undecided. The poll also backs up familiar conservative GOP themes. Respondents support masks being optional in schools (88 percent) to combat Covid-19 compared to 12 percent who back mandates. And the poll shows Republican respondents still view former President Donald Trump favorably, 86.6 percent to 13.1 percent. The poll followed the well-funded but little known Sullivan already coming out with TV ads for the June 2022 primary to determine who will take on Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker. – Shia Kapos

https://www.dailysignal.com/2021/10/04/conservative-activist-calls-out-facebook-for-suppressing-content/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For more than a decade, Texas native Don Kirchoff has used Facebook to share news and information with fellow conservatives. The longtime Heritage Foundation supporter and Heritage Action Sentinel frequently posts articles from The Daily Signal as well as content from other conservative organizations and media outlets. But is anyone seeing them? Many of Kirchoff’s Facebook posts have zero likes or comments, prompting him to take his case directly to Facebook. While that worked in the past, he has noticed the problem more often. Kirchoff captured screenshots and shared them with The Daily Signal, which is Heritage’s multimedia news organization, as well as Facebook. He joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain the situation and raise awareness for other conservatives.)

Further, I should write a book about how Democrat plant and RINO leaders of the following put Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion ahead of the Republican Party platform, that is, how they put the Democrat Party platform, ahead of the Republican Party platform’s equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.)

(COMMENT: www.gopillinois.com will never have a paywall or contain advertising and GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters will always be free and contain no advertising because thankfully, I have enough time, money, ability, and motivation. The many adverse actions that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have taken against me since 2000 motivate me to keep on going. The lack of communication from the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization motivates me to keep on going.)

Instead of playing football in high school, I washed dishes for the minimum wage. If I had been aggressive, my critics/opponents might very well have a) failed in stopping me this year from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks, b) failed in ending TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, c) failed in ending my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, d) failed in ending my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, e) failed in ending my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership in 2007, f) failed in ending my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, g) failed in ending my GAO employment in 1997, h) etc. If I was aggressive, I would use the same disgusting, outrageous, condescending, harassing, intimidating, bombastic, underhanded, back stabbing, nasty, crude, insidious, demeaning, insulting, vicious, threatening, etc. tactics against my critics/opponents that they use against me.)

SANTA BARBARA NEWS PRESS
— Wake up, America! Our liberty is threatened – Editorial
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have done the most since 2000 to destroy the following: Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.)
https://newspress.com/wake-up-america-our-liberty-is-threatened/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The often-hidden leaders of cancel culture Woke movements, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Green New Deal, LGBTQ, CRT and several other groups, all have one goal: Destroy American liberty and freedom under the pretext of making America better. We must urgently defend liberty and freedom because that is what made this the greatest country in the history of the world. The stated goals and superficial claims of these organizations appear laudable on their surface. They claim to want everyone to treat people of color fairly, to have a clean environment, to slow climate change, and to treat gays and lesbians with respect. Most Americans want these results. I certainly do, and everyone I know does. However, looking deeper into the background of these organizations and movements shows that they have ties to, and/or were originated by, Marxists and similar sympathizers. The well-documented Marxist strategy is to destroy existing cultures and governments by openly espousing benevolent sounding practices while secretly creating chaos and division to make the society collapse. Using this method, they are trying to take over America and install “utopian” laws and rulers. Accurate history shows this strategy always leads to dictatorial regimes that result in citizen misery. Proof of the Marxist underpinnings of these listed organizations would require pages of documentation, too long for this article. If you wish to research these assertions I suggest starting with the book “American Marxism” by Mark Levin. It’s a book that carefully investigates the issue, with hundreds of footnotes and references. Many other sources confirm this as well. Far too many good Americans take these shadowy leftist organizations lightly, saying “it can’t happen here.” Sadly, it can, and destruction of American values is further along than most people realize. The leftist inroads have been slowly happening for over 50 years, but now it has reached the climax point of rapid and potentially irreversible change. Wake Up! Look at the proposed changes in federal, state and local laws, which will result in government rule of everything we do. Individual freedom and liberty be damned! It is critically urgent for common sense Americans to get involved in all aspects of government: school boards, water districts, sanitation districts, city councils, county offices, state and federal offices. The extreme leftists are actively pursuing control of all these activities, and it is time for everyone with good judgment to stand firm in defending the wonderful American dream. All government activities are important, but local elementary and secondary school board control is the most critical. We must educate our children to accurately learn about American history, liberty, and freedom. The modern teaching of history is too often done using newly created theories about the past that replace the actual facts. Examples are The 1619 Project and critical race theory. These theories originate in far too many universities where “elite intellectuals” formulate curriculum based on the writings of Marxist leaning philosophers at other universities. These “intellectuals” seem to not understand the underlying Marxist plan and blindly join the trendy leftist Woke fad. These professors have been indoctrinating students studying to become elementary and secondary teachers. These new misinformed teachers then indoctrinate our kids! If you are doubtful, do some research and closely look at the erroneous curriculum our students are being fed. If our children are indoctrinated early, and then again in college, they will end up voting for leaders who will forever destroy free thinking, free speech, liberty and the importance of individual responsibility! Citizens must actively meet with school boards to demand that students get a solid basic education in English (traditional vocabulary, writing, reading, and speaking), math, science, and vocational training where appropriate! The poverty-stricken kids in too many schools desperately need this basic education to get out of that poverty cycle, but as of now, they too often don’t learn anything useful. However, they get the time wasting “Woke” indoctrination that teaches nothing useful for a successful life while reinforcing their poor self-image. They then hate themselves and others, and they hate America. Don’t allow teaching these students that they are victims. Instead, teach them, with an optimistic spirit, the basics that will give them the tools to succeed in life the same as everyone else. Teach them the true meaning of American values; freedom and justice for all. Do everything you can to get the families of students involved. Yes, families! Leftists want to destroy families as part of their goal to destroy our culture. Kids with strong family support perform well and the entire family unit benefits from their children’s successes. Kids given the good education they deserve will then be able to enjoy the wonders of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” — the American dream. They can then relish the feelings of self-worth that come from the accomplishments achieved by their own hard work. Success! They won’t be victims. They’ll be happy Americans. Wake up, America! Get active now to stop this destructive indoctrination!!)

DAYTONA BEACH NEWS JOURNAL
— Volusia County court administrator discriminated against former court interpreter – Patricio G. Balona
(COMMENT: While I was a federal employee for almost 30 years, I engaged in “protected activities,” namely, I opposed patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. Because my Democrat superiors could not officially take adverse actions against me for engaging in those activities, they hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I was a “bad” employee to justify the adverse actions that they took against me. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— Ortega Uses “Covid-19 Pretext” to Isolate Political Prisoners
(COMMENT: I have always promoted the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. Because the following who reject one or more of the aforesaid planks could not officially take adverse actions against me for promoting the aforesaid planks, they hint/imply/argue/shout that I am a “bad” person justify the adverse actions that they have taken against me: a) leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party, b) leaders of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC), and American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Midwest Chapter (MC), c) leaders of Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC), Wheaton Park District (WPD), Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, and d) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, their major donors, their fundraisers, their pollsters, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers. So far, the aforesaid have succeeded in ending my TAPROOT chairmanship, my WCC Government Affairs Committee membership, my MTRO webmaster service twice, my ICRC Steering Committee membership, and my AAPC MC board membership. In 2006, they almost succeeded in getting ICRC to censure me. This year, they succeeded in getting Wheaton and WPD to stop me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republican could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks.)
