https://www.theepochtimes.com/immigration-reform-group-calls-on-mccarthy-to-get-border-security-bill-onto-house-floor_5035800.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Until we have a mandatory workforce verification system–like E-Verify–in place, immigrants will have an incentive to come into our country through illegal means. We want and need immigrants to come to our nation to contribute to our economic success, but we must also remain a sovereign nation governed by the rule of law.” Chmielenski said Calvert’s proposed Legal Workforce Act has “actually been endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Restaurant Association, and National Home Builders Association. These are organizations that tend to oppose additional mandates on employers.” Right now, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 22 states impose some form of “mandatory E-Verify rather than just requiring I-9,” he said, which puts the onus on employers to “become document experts. E-Verify is a touchy subject in the states but [mandatory E-Verify] would replace a patchwork of laws from state-to-state and go a long way” to addressing the nation’s immigration issues.)

ABC7
— COMMENT: Democrats say “State of the Union: Biden recognizes Brandon Tsay, who disarmed Monterey Park shooter and says He saved lives. It’s time we do the same. Ban assault weapons now.” On their way to abolishing the Second Amendment, Democrats want to register all semiautomatic firearms, then ban all semiautomatic firearms, than register all firearms, then ban all firearms, then confiscate all firearms from non-Democrats starting with non-Democrats who are heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, homeowners, married, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

NORTHERN STAR
— COMMENT: Democrat say “Student Government Association proposed petition criticizes NIU’s efforts at inclusion.” NIU let me transfer from UIC in 1969 when I was 20 years old, but because of my bad demographics, if I was 20 years old today, I doubt that NIU would let me do that today. I am White, male, heterosexual, conservative, Republican, non-poor, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), 100% German national origin, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Factors that encouraged NIU to let me transfer included I was a federal employee (Park Forest Post Office), a union member, draft avoider, and I had not been active in Republican politics at Crete-Monee High School or at UIC.
https://northernstar.info/103019/news/sga-petition-criticizes-nius-efforts-at-inclusion/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Amid growing concerns of what it’s calling NIU’s inactivity toward racism and lack of diversity on campus, the Student Government Association has proposed a petition to shed light on student concerns. The proposed petition was co-authored by Historian Atlas Babcock and Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Olivia Newman and was developed in collaboration with feedback from Black student organizations on campus. The petition proposed highlights three issues with the university raised by students: “A lack of diversity and representation in campus staff and administration,” “performative activism” and “lack of long-term community support.” Among examples of student complaints are over-policing at Black events, a lack of Black representation among administration and staff, failure to provide upkeep to the BLM mural and more. Much of the discussion around the proposed petition centered on the university’s handling of inclusion in the past and what the SGA wants NIU to do going forward.)

DAILY EASTERN NEWS
— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs attribute all the successes that White males have to their benefitting from discrimination against minorities and against females. While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to give preference to their Democrat employees, and especially to those who were minority, female, and/or younger. If I had been a Democrat a minority and/or a female, my Democrat superiors would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service, currently $183,500/year, long before I was 40 in 1988. I earned an MBA from Loyola when I was 27. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul when I was 31. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in when I was 32. I became a licensed CPA when I was 32. Because I was not a Democrat, a minority, or a female, a) IRS did not promote me beyond GS-12, Step 5, currently $104,583/year, and b) GAO forced me to take a $21,863/year pay cut in today’s dollars, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, currently $82,720/year, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, did not promote me beyond GS-13 Step 1, currently $109,732/year, until I was 38, and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would cite my many Democrat coworkers who my Democrat superiors promoted over me who had a) less job-related work experience than I had, b) less job-related education than I had, c) fewer job-related professional certifications than I had, and/or d) had no job-related professional license.

WASHINGTON POST
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Biden faced GOP jeers.”
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/02/07/takeaways-state-of-the-union/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 3. A jeer-filled affair It’s been 14 years since a Republican member of Congress appeared to cross a threshold by yelling “You lie” at Barack Obama during a speech to a joint session of Congress. Tuesday’s speech marked the continued trend toward partisan raucousness during what was once a much more staid affair. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), perhaps predictably, repeated Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-S.C.) outburst from 2009 when Biden brought up Medicare and Social Security. (It’s worth noting that Biden qualified his comments about Republican support for Scott’s plan by emphasizing: “I’m not saying it’s a majority,” but he was jeered anyway. McCarthy shook his head while seated behind Biden.) Biden responded to all this by suggesting it was an important moment, with Republicans so loudly taking issue with the idea that they would target entitlements: “I’m glad to see — you know, I enjoy conversion. When Biden brought up fentanyl deaths, he was met with a response of: “It’s your fault!” Republicans also took exception to his comments about other issues, including gun control and the border. The latter instance elicited a notable response from McCarthy: While he sat stone-faced for much of the speech, the GOP outcry drew a demonstrative blink from the House speaker, who shushed his conference. McCarthy earlier Tuesday had promised no “childish” games, specifically citing then-House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) having ripped up a copy of Trump’s speech after the 2020 State of the Union address. And as the speech wore on, we got a sense for why, perhaps, it got so contentious. In contrast to McCarthy’s shushing, Trump on Truth Social attacked “RINO” — Republican in Name Only — party members for “jumping up and down with applause for the wrong reasons!”)

I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997, I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970.)

CPA PRACTICE ADVISOR
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Illinois CPA Society Accepting Scholarship Applications.” If you did not get college scholarships, why was that? Because I worked as many hours as I could for the Park Forest Post Office while I attended UIC and NIU, a) my GPA was harmed, b) I was not in financial need, and c) I could not demonstrate any leadership qualities. Further, sports scholarships were out because while I could stand and walk, I could not run far at all because of a bone disease that I had.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On February 8th, at 4:00PM, the House Appropriations Committee will hear House Bill 1143, to impose a firearm permit requirement, a training mandate, and a 10-day waiting period scheme, along with allowing indefinite delays on firearm transfers. The Appropriations Committee considers the fiscal impacts of the bill. HB 1143 is an unfunded gun-control mandate and will cost individuals hundreds to thousands of dollars to exercise their fundamental right to keep and bear arms. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are encouraged to oppose HB 1143 by noting their position for the legislative record and with in-person, remote, or written testimony. Click here for more information on how to participate. House Bill 1143 denies law-abiding citizens their Second Amendment right to acquire firearms unless they obtain a government-issued permit. The permit is only valid for five years and to obtain the permit, the state requires completion of official, sanctioned firearms training every five years. It also imposes an arbitrary ten-day delay on prospective gun owners taking possession of their firearms and makes this delay longer or indefinite if the state fails to complete background check during that time. Again, please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE HB 1143, and please consider testifying as well.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Local Republican Leaders Select Lemont Mayor John Egofske, an Independent Who Endorsed Democrats, to Fill Jim Durkin’s Vacant House Seat (COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. How will Egofske respond to ever-increasing pressure from hate-filled conservative-hating leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) a) to officially abolish the individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Republican Party platform, b) to officially banish conservatives from the IRP, and c) to officially dissolve the IRP?)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2023/02/breaking-local-republican-leaders-select-lemont-mayor-john-egofske-an-independent-who-endorsed-democrats-to-fill-jim-durkins-vacant-house-seat.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2020, Egofske endorsed Democratic US Rep. Daniel Lipinski and on October 22, 2022, just weeks before the midterm election, Egofske endorsed Illinois Democratic State Rep. Larry Walsh, Jr., a member of Democratic House Speaker Chris Welch’s leadership team – where he serves as Downstate Caucus Whip, saying, “Regardless of partisan politics, it’s all about getting things done, and I have seen firsthand that Larry Walsh Jr gets things done.” Sources confirm to Illinois Review that Durkin wrote a letter of support to the committee, expressing his support for Egofske to replace him in the Illinois House of Representatives. In announcing the formation of the committee tasked with finding Durkin’s replacement, DuPage Republican Chairman Jim Zay said, “Leader Durkin has been a tremendous advocate for our region and state, and we thank him for his extraordinary service. Our committee looks forward to a transparent and thorough process to fill this important position.” In addition to Zay, the committee includes Tim Ozinga (Will Co.), Michael Shackel (Lemont Twp.), Terrance Carr (Lyons Twp.), Cindy Nelson Katsenes (Orland Twp.) and Sean Morrison (Palos Twp.). The vote is weighted, with Zay’s vote having the most influence on the committee (44%). Carr, 24%; Shackel, 22%; Ozinga, 4%; Katsenes, 3%; and Morrison, 2%. During the Republican primary, Durkin, Morrison, Ozinga and Zay endorsed Richard Irvin’s campaign for governor. But in previous elections, Irvin not only pulled Democratic Primary ballots in 2014, 2016 and 2020, but he also spent years praising Democratic Gov. JB Pritzker – referring to him as a “great friend and a great leader.” And in 2020, Irvin attended a Black Lives Matter rally, yelling, “I can’t breathe!” During the midterm election, Durkin suffered embarrassing losses, giving House Democrats once again, supermajority control in the Illinois House. In media interviews after announcing his resignation as House GOP leader the day after the midterms, Durkin attempted to place all of the blame on the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump. “As long as we continue to say that we are the party of Trump and that we have to abide by the party principles in the platform, 100% we’re gonna continue down this path of losing.” When Durkin announced that he was resigning from his seat in the legislature in January, he once again blamed Trump for Illinois’ losses, saying, “I hope that at some point in the near future, and I think we’re getting there, that the party breaks its fever of Donald Trump and understands and learns from the past. Some people will never get there.” Durkin then suggested that pro-life and 2nd Amendment issues were “dragging” the Republican party down. “So I would just say the sooner that the public realizes that he’s not value added to the Republican Party, we can start looking at what this party used to be about. A party that didn’t insist upon this purity test. A party that is a fiscally conservative first of all, certainly, but we can have a fair and respectful debate within the party on issues related to the Second Amendment, to life and these other social issues, that have been dragging us down in areas that we have to compete in — mainly the suburbs and the collar counties.” In the last few months, Illinois Review has published several articles about Durkin using his political influence to target conservative grassroots candidates during the Illinois Primary. Sources also confirmed to Illinois Review that the IL GOP is blaming Durkin for the party’s postage discount abuse, where mailers “Paid for by the Republican Party of Illinois” were sent during the primary to viciously attack conservative Republican grassroots candidates that were challenging Durkin’s friends and political allies. And in January, before he resigned from the legislature, Durkin was the only Republican to join the Democrats, voting in favor of the assault weapons ban. Attorney and former Illinois Attorney General candidate Thomas DeVore has filed multiple lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the assault weapons ban on the equal protection clause, and so far, Judges in Effingham and White Counties, and the 5th District Appellate Court view the equal protection clause as the most credible argument in the case – and a literal “silver bullet” for DeVore and his plaintiffs. In another blow to Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker’s assault weapons ban, and following the directive of the Appellate Court, White County Judge T. Scott Webb on Thursday granted DeVore’s motion for a temporary restraining order (TRO), halting the ban while the lawsuit proceeds. The lawsuit raises the same claims as the one filed in Effingham County, where Judge Joshua Morrison granted the first TRO and names Gov. JB Pritzker, State Senate President Don Harmon, D, Illinois House Speaker Christopher Welch, D, and Attorney General Kwame Raoul, D, as defendants. The lawsuit filed in White County by DeVore includes over 1,600 plaintiffs, including former Illinois State Senator and Republican nominee for governor Darren Bailey; 68 federal firearms dealers and covers 92 counties. On Tuesday, 5th District Appellate Court affirmed Effingham County’s TRO and goes beyond the original 866 plaintiffs in the original lawsuit, and is now binding precedent on all lower courts statewide.)

— COMMENT: To use pot is to impair yourself. Ever-increasingly, Democrats encourage everyone to use more and more and more pot. How much pot do those who you have to rely on use? Under the Democrats, expect that they will be ever-increasingly impaired. Ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes if I had been a pot user, would I have been able a) to take college preparatory courses and to graduate in the upper 20% of my Crete-Monee High School class in 1966, b) to get an ACT score of 24 in 1966, c) to earn a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, d) to earn an MBA from Loyola in 1976, e) to pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, f) to earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, g) to pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, h) to become a licensed CPA in 1981, and i) to earn a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. If I had been a pot user, a) S.S. Kresge would not have hired me in 1964, b) the Post Office would not have hired me in 1966, c) Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970, d) Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971, e) IRS would not have hired me in 1971, and f) GAO would not have hired me in 1980. If I had been a pot user, I would not have been able to buy new cars in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, etc. If I had been a pot user, I would not have been able to buy real estate in 1972, 1974, or 1976. If I had been a pot user, I would not have been able to get married in 1978.

WASHINGTON POST
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Stolen Guns Are Fueling Violent Crime in the US.” I have had a FOID card since I was 20 years old in 1968. Of course, Illinois criminals know who the FOID card holders are in Illinois. That might encourage some criminals to avoid FOID card holders. That might encourage other criminals to invade the homes of FOID card holders to steal their firearms and ammunition. Of course, if/when semiautomatic firearms are registered in Illinois, Illinois criminals will know who has them.

— COMMENT: Democrats want to abolish the Second Amendment. As Democrats ever-increasingly destroy America, poverty and crime will ever-increasingly increase. Therefore, ever-increasingly, 911 response times will increase and Americans will need to buy more and more and more firearms for their self-defense.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2023/02/05/guns-bruen-supreme-court-second-amendment/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When the Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the Second Amendment protects individuals’ right to gun ownership, it emphasized the ability “of law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home.” When it expanded that decision last year in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the court noted that “ordinary, law-abiding citizens have a similar right to carry handguns publicly for their self-defense.”

FAST COMPANY
— What to do if you didn’t get promoted – Mita Mallick (COMMENT: IRS promoted me to GS-12 Step 1 (currently $92,279/year) when I was 25 in 1974, but no promotions after that. To transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, GAO forced me to take a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $104,583) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $82,720/year), a $21,863/year (21%) in today’s dollars. GAO did not promote me back to GS-12 Step 5 until 1982. GAO promoted me to GS-13 (currently $109,732/year) in 1986, but no promotions after that. QUESTION: What could I have done, but I refused to do, to get a) promoted by IRS to GS-13, GS-14 (currently $129,671/year), GS-15 (currently $152,527/year), and Senior Executive Service (SES) (currently $183,500/year) by age 40 and b) promoted by GAO to GS-14, GS-15, and SES by age 40? ANSWER: I refused to become a Democrat. I refused to help my IRS and GAO superiors get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 my age 25, to GS-14 by age 30, to GS-15 by age 35, and to SES by age 40. If I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female, IRS and/or GAO would have promoted me to SES long before I was 40 because I had earned an MBA when I was 27, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30, earned a master’s degree in accounting when I was 31, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt when I was 32, and became a licensed CPA when I was 32.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But aside from casting sunlight on the inner workings of the Chicago GOP and the personal perspectives of its leaders, Illinois Review continues to publish an overwhelming majority of articles focused on conservative news and opinion – standing up for the grassroots, and challenging the establishment leadership of the IL GOP, who seem more concerned with maintaining their power and titles than actually winning and supporting the grassroots.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Illinois is much less affordable than the other Midwest states,” Gonzalez told The Center Square. “In general, it costs more to retire in Illinois than it does in most other states in the country.” Despite Illinois not taxing retirement income, general tax policy and lack of taxpayer friendliness were the main factors in Illinois’ low ranking, Gonzalez said. “Taxes are a huge part of why Illinois loses out to other states like Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Nebraska,” she said. “Special tax breaks for seniors and tax policy for retirement income just aren’t there in Illinois.” High sales taxes, high property taxes and high inheritance taxes are among the main reasons why Illinois came in 47th for affordability, she said.)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: The most egregious gun control policy is the new Illinois gun law that bans assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. The law allows people who owned assault weapons or high-capacity magazines before the law was passed to keep them — but only if they register their weapons with the Illinois State Police. This law is unconstitutional and violates both the Second and Fifth Amendments. Fortunately, a judge in Illinois has issued a temporary restraining order , preventing the implementation of the law — but only for the plaintiffs of the case that were before the judge.

DAILY SIGNAL
— Race Everywhere in Today’s America – Victor Davis Hanson
https://www.dailysignal.com/2023/02/03/race-everywhere-in-todays-america/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In sum, class, not race, remains the best litmus test of being underprivileged in America. It is no longer synonymous with race. No wonder the identity politics industry now strains to attach prefixes such as “systemic” or “implicit” to “racism,” or “micro” to “aggression,” purportedly to ferret out bias that otherwise is not apparent. Pause to reflect that America is the only successful multiracial constitutional republic in history. To survive in an increasingly dysfunctional and hostile world abroad, the unique idea of the United States requires concord. But national cohesion is only possible through citizens subordinating their tribal interests to a common culture. Only then do they cease being automatons of warring tribes and collectives. As the world becomes ever scarier, Americans must—as Benjamin Franklin once warned—hang together, or most certainly they will soon all hang separately.)

Ever-increasingly, Democrats join up with America’s enemies to win their Second Civil War and get rid of Republicans once and for all. What if in 1861, Mexico had officially joined with the Confederacy to defeat America? To Mexico’s credit, it abolished slavery in 1829.)

McCarthy pointed out that slavery, defended by Southern Democrats, was the issue that brought about the Civil War. He called the war the “greatest challenge ever to our Constitution.” McCarthy said Joseph Rainey of South Carolina, the first black American elected to the House of Representatives, was a Republican. He suggested that the statues remind the Democratic Party’s true history. “If I was a Democrat, I wouldn’t be proud of their legacy, I wouldn’t be proud of their history, and I would want to change it, ” said McCarthy. “There’s not one Republican you have to take down.”)

They had a) thrown me off audits of IRS, b) given me an adverse job assignment, c) given me unfair performance expectations, d) turned my subordinates against me, e) given me an unfair performance appraisal, and f) ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. Previously, they had a) kept me off audits of IRS 1980-1985, b) delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and c) forced me to take a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5, to GS-9 Step 10. After Hyde came to my defense, my Democrat GAO superiors’ retaliation against me diminished somewhat. But eight years later, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.”

— Millennials and Money: 5 Simple Ways To Get Ahead of Your Peers Financially – HEATHER TAYLOR (COMMENT: What helped you get ahead financially? I earned job-related college degrees when I was 21, 27, 31, and 48. I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48. I earned a job-related professional license when I was 32. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I always spent far less on immediate pleasures than my peers. Instead of renting, I bought a new town home in 1972 and condos in 1974 and 1976. My wife and I got married in 1978. We both worked, but in anticipation of having children, we spent money like we had only one paycheck. We always saved as much as we could for our retirement. Instead of renting, we bought a home in Wheaton in 1978 and we had one built in Wheaton in 1984. But according to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, I got ahead financially, because I avoided the draft. Because I benefitted from discrimination against minorities, females, younger people, LGBTQers, renters, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Because the federal government grossly overpaid me. Because of my wife’s income. Because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents. Because my federal pension and health, dental, and vision insurance subsidies are far too generous. What do you think?)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Bailey: ‘To come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639054534-bailey-to-come-here-into-illinois-and-to-add-the-foid-card-and-to-continue-to-add-these-restrictions-that-s-an-infringement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Sen. Darren Bailey is among the growing list of lawmakers to come out against new legislation. According to KSKD, DuPage County Sheriff Jim Mendrick, the top law enforcement officer in the state’s second-largest county, is also among law enforcement officials who have declared they will not be enforcing the law, branding it as facing “a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” In a recent Facebook post, Bailey expressed that background checks for firearms make sense. However, additional restrictions are not necessary. “We can say, alright, ‘Shall not be infringed,’ but yet we understand that sometimes these guns fall into the hands of the wrong person. So we have the federal, you know, firearm background check. That’s exactly what it does, and I don’t see anyone arguing that. But to come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement,” Bailey said in a Facebook post. Illinois state residents will be informed further on the new law for firearms once it is fully enforced. Under the terms of the new law, residents will be allowed to keep guns they have already purchased or obtained, along with newly relocated residents being eligible to apply for a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card within 60 days of making the state their new home. Illinois State Police are writing new administrative rules to explain how to enforce the assault weapons ban, with The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) being the final voice in determining what rules are officially adopted before state police eventually circulate them to other law enforcement agencies across the state.)

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE
— FAQS: QUESTION: Do Illinois residents have to register their AR or assault weapons as defined by the new law? ANSWER: Yes. In the coming months, more detailed information will be made available on how to register the firearm. At this time, you cannot submit an affidavit for registration. The endorsement affidavit will be available by October 1, 2023 and must be signed under oath and submitted to the ISP prior to January 1, 2024.

— ISRA Thursday Bulletin – February 2, 2023 (COMMENT: In 2005, as an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, I organized a candidate forum in Springfield the evening before the day that the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee elected Andy McKenna. Attendees included candidates McKenna, Stephen McGlynn, John Cox, and Jim Nalepa.)

(FROM THE BULLETIN: Recently, the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois reassigned all the cases in that District challenging HB4571 to the courtroom of Judge Stephen P. McGlynn, which is where the ISRA challenge (Harrel v. Raoul) to that law is being heard.)

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— DuPage County sheriff says he is not changing stance on enforcing the gun ban – Andrew Hensel (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969), while I did increasingly object to their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination, I never even came close to even hinting that I would not enforce their Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) requirements. In fact, I enforced their AA and DEI requirements big time. To comply with their AA and DEI requirements, I gave tremendous preference to my subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, disabled, non-Christion, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. Most of my subordinates were most of the aforesaid. But my aforesaid tremendous preference giving was still not enough for my Democrat superiors. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would focus on the tremendous preference that I gave my Black GAO CPA subordinate who my Democrat GAO superiors gave my job and my preferred corner office to after they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

A City Council subcommittee that was formed almost three years ago to explore how to make amends to the descendants of enslaved people has only met twice. “It’s smoke and mirrors,” state Rep. Kam Buckner said at a candidate forum on the issue.” Of course, the more of the following that Chicago residents are, the more reparations that Chicago Democrats will make them pay: heterosexual, White, male, older, Republican, conservative, non-poor, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “City opens temporary shelter for asylum seekers in Woodlawn despite effort to block bus moving them. At least 3 busloads of recently arrived immigrants were dropped off at a once-shuttered South Side school that has been transformed into a shelter. Two protesters tried to stop a bus from reaching the former Wadsworth Elementary School.”

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Cook County’s financial divide is a local example of how policies favor the rich. What happens during the budget standoff in Congress could determine whether it becomes harder for average Americans to build wealth and pay their bills.” Where did you build your wealth and how did the policies there help you do that? I worked in Cook County 1964-1997. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 washing dishes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline. I worked in Flossmoor in 1966 cleaning golf shoes. I worked in Park Forest 1966-1969 delivering mail. I worked in Chicago Heights 1970-1972 selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances and pumping gasoline. I worked in downtown Chicago in 1971 and 1973-1980 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in Harvey 1972-1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked at 63rd and Halsted in Chicago in 1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in downtown Chicago auditing federal agencies 1980-1997. I lived in downtown Chicago part-time 1974-1976 and full-time 1976-1978. In 1978, I got married. My wife and I used her savings for the downpayment on a home in Wheaton, I sold my one bedroom Outer Drive East condo for $61,000, and with the $10,000 gain, I bought a new 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale for $6,000 and a new 1978 Chevrolet Chevette for $4,000 in Glen Ellyn. My wife worked in Cook County 1968-2003 and 2014-2017.

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Survey pushes for greater focus on teacher recruitment and retention amid shortages.” The Democrats who ran GAO, IRS, and the Post Office in 1980, 1971, and 1966 respectively, hired me because I was qualified for the jobs and they could not find qualified Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, or young people who would take the jobs. I had a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, and d) earned a high school diploma in 1966. By 1980, I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. By 1971, I had worked for Firestone Stores for 10 months. I had passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970. I had passed the Post Office employment examination in 1966.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Burr Ridge To Enforce New Gun Law: Officials. The police chief described how the registration requirement would be enforced.” (COMMENT: Under the law, assault weapons do not have to be registered until January 1, 2024. Exactly what will Grasso and Madden do now if they see someone in Burr Ridge with an assault weapon? Will they demand to see their FOID card? What else?)
https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/burr-ridge-enforce-new-gun-law-officials
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But he said officers called onto private property for unrelated matters would take action if unregistered weapons are in view. “I have been asked if this bill is a violation of the Constitution. That’s for the courts to decide,” Madden said. Mayor Gary Grasso agreed with the chief’s approach. “The point being is that the village will not turn a blind eye to the necessary enforcement of this law,” the mayor said. “Like all laws, the chief and officers will enforce them.” He said he wanted to make it clear where the village stands on the issue. “We follow the law and will let the courts decide on the propriety of the law,” Grasso said. The law is being challenged in the courts. Under its provisions, residents with “assault” weapons must register them starting Oct. 1. They have until Jan. 1 to do so.)
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Durkin Seat Hopefuls Kept Secret For Now. Parts of La Grange, Western Springs, Burr Ridge and Hinsdale are in the district.” Conservatives fear that another hate-filled conservative-hater will be selected to fill the seat. I should write a book about the biggest hate-filled conservative-hating Republican party leaders, elected officials, major donors, etc. in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton since 2000.)
https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/durkin-seat-hopefuls-kept-secret-now
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two Republicans have applied for the state House seat left vacant by Rep. Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, a party leader confirmed Thursday. But the leader declined to release the names. In a message to Patch, DuPage County Republican Party Chairman Jim Zay said the selection committee plans to meet Thursday night about the candidates for 82nd District state representative. He said the names would not be released until after that meeting, saying the committee would need to talk to all its members about it. Both Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso and Willow Springs Village President Melissa Neddermeyer have confirmed to Patch that they did not apply. Democrats and Republicans have no legal requirement to disclose the names of candidates who apply for legislative posts left vacant by party members. In fact, the parties have been known to keep the information under wraps. The 82nd District includes all or parts of Western Springs, La Grange, Hinsdale and Burr Ridge, among other towns. Durkin, who resigned last month, was the House Republican leader. In Illinois, a state representative’s district consists of about 105,000 people. Republicans plan to hold a public meeting involving interviews of “select” candidates, according to a party news release. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the House Republican Organization office at 16W281 83rd St., Suite D, in Burr Ridge. Interested Republicans must have lived in the district for the last two years. For more information, call 217-553-7743 or email jaymesiemer@gmail.com.)

NPR ILLINOIS
— COMMENT: Democrats use African American studies to promote hatred against Republicans. I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. Democrats promote hatred against Republicans. I should write a book about my Black superiors, my Black supervisors, my Black coworkers, and my Black subordinates who rejected my Democrat superiors’ efforts to make them hate me because I am a Republican who is conservative, White, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978.

— COMMENT: Democrats ask “Does the IRS audit some people more often than others?” IRS can use court decisions to disallow just about any deduction that it wants to. My 1972-1980 and 1992-1997 federal income tax returns show that I paid less tax because I deducted my education expenses. In 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my education deductions to punish me because I increasingly complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They outrageously, disgustingly, and unethically argued that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I took at DePaul 1976-1977 and deducted a) did not relate to my IRS Revenue Officer job duties, b) did not help me carry out those duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) were taken by me to qualify myself for a new trade or business, and d) were a distraction. They ignored a) my IRS Revenue Office position description, b) my graduate school applications, and c) the fact that IRS encourages its Revenue Officers to take the courses that I took.)

I should write a book about the diversity training that they required my superiors, my supervisors, my coworkers, my subordinates, and me to take. I would focus on the success that training had in promoting hatred against Republicans and especially against Republicans who share my demographics.

https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/israel-mass-shootings-second-amendment/2023/02/01/id/1106851/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a better idea. He announced over the weekend what the Jewish state’s response would be. “In addition, we’re expanding and accelerating gun licensing to thousands of licensed citizens, including first responders. This will allow citizens to save lives,” he said on his official Facebook page. “When civilians have guns, they can defend themselves,” agreed Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israeli national security minister. Itzik Chiprout, chairman of the Israeli Legal Weapon Association, also thought this was an excellent move. “The police cannot be everywhere,” said Chiprout. “Even a swift police reaction is sometimes not enough. Civilians that are armed save lives.”)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Mendrick: ‘If they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639176461-mendrick-if-they-ll-treat-your-duly-elected-sheriff-of-this-county-that-way-just-think-how-they-ll-treat-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick said U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (R-IL) “got nasty” with him in a phone call after he said he would not enforce the state’s gun ban. Mendrick is one of around 95 sheriffs who said they won’t enforce the ban involving over 170 types of firearms and millions of guns statewide. The law was ruled unconstitutional in a downstate court and is expected to see the same fate in other courts. “My voters had asked me to put out a statement on my opinion of what I’ll be doing on this and the way the law was written. It did nothing on enforcement,” Mendrick told Chicago’s Morning Answer radio host Dan Proft. “We all know if you don’t put who’s responsible, enforcing the law, that it’s going to be an unfunded mandate down at the end of the year. That’s just how this works every time. And I couldn’t get anybody to tell me yes or no. Will we be expected to enforce this? Until I got a call from Sean Casten, congressman, who told me that if I was willing to go to a house filled with Molotov cocktails, I should have no problem going to people’s doors for this law.” Proft pointed out Casten, a Democrat, had suggested Mendrick resign. “And he called on you to resign,” Proft said. “Yeah, to resign. ‘Recall,’ I think he said there’s something like that. He told me on the phone to I have no First Amendment right as a sheriff. And I really thought that was odd, to see the shock and horror of a politician when they don’t get their way or when somebody challenges them, simply because before you even started the conversation of is this right or wrong,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that when he pushed backed against Casten the congressman “got nasty.” “Well, it got worse, he said some other things I’m not going to divulge just because he really got nasty with me,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that the lack of respect for another elected official had him question how Casten treats ordinary Illinoisans. “But think about it, if they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you,” Mendrick said. “I mean, I couldn’t believe it. I live in the definition of a hostile work environment, political intimidation.” Casten was one of five other Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation who penned a letter against Mendrick. Casten took to extreme language in his characterization of the decision by Mendrick and around 95% of the state’s sheriffs to not enforce the law saying the sheriff’s “actions are going to make future mass shootings more likely.” Mendrick answered Casten’s accusations in a statement. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation.” Mendrick was clear in his rebuke of the law after its signing in early January. “I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution,” Mendrick said. “Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for DuPage County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act.” He has since become a focal point of angry Democrats seeking to impose their will on local law enforcement. Political organizer Jeanne Ives, a former state representative and former gubernatorial and congressional candidate, was one of hundreds who packed into the DuPage county Board chambers in a Jan. 24 meeting. “I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick. He has done an outstanding job keeping our communities safe. He has also worked very hard in turning around the lives of those incarcerated in his jail,” Ives said in statement.)

DAILY HERALD
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Clarity and common sense casualties of DuPage debate over new gun ban.” DuPage County Democrat elected officials and party leaders have come out strongly against the Second Amendment, in favor of the Protect Illinois Communities Act (PICA), and against Mendirick. DuPage County Republican elected officials and party leaders should come out strongly in favor of the Second Amendment, in opposition to PICA ,and in support of Mendrick.
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20230201/daily-herald-opinion-clarity-and-common-sense-casualties-of-dupage-debate-over-new-gun-ban
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The back and forth between Du­Page County Sheriff James Mendrick and county officials upset about his stance on Illinois’ new high-powered weapons ban turned into quite the political soap opera this month, complete with press conferences, protests, TV appearances and, finally, some sort of consensus after Mendrick met with DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair Deb Conroy Monday. Come Tuesday morning, however, Mendrick had this to say: “Don’t listen to the media,” his statement starts out. “I was not threatened to be censured or anything else during this meeting. The meeting that I had with State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair … Conroy yesterday was the first day three tiers of government came together in discussion on this topic.” First, a little context — and clarity. “This topic,” of course, is the sheriff’s initial refusal to enforce a provision of the new law requiring current owners of high-powered weapons to register them with the state. The meeting he refers to ended with an agreement that he would enforce the law after clarification that the ban does not mandate deputies go door to door checking on compliance. And while Monday’s meeting may not have mentioned censure, it was followed by a joint statement in which Conroy says she will not seek censure — an idea raised at an earlier public meeting and elsewhere. Mendrick’s statement then assures gun owners that sheriff’s deputies would not be showing up at the homes of “law-abiding residents to harass them over gun registration.” “We will not be sending deputies out proactively to take your lawfully owned guns,” he went on. “Please remove that stressor from your lives.” We would argue that Mendrick and others created “that stressor.” Officials have every right to question how they will be expected to enforce the law, but they jumped all too quickly to conclusions and, in some cases, distortions. While lawmakers have made clear that house-to-house inspections are not expected, opponents continue to stoke fears. Earlier this month, Gov. J.B. Pritzker called the refusal of many Illinois sheriffs to enforce the law “political grandstanding at its worst.” We have come to agree. Just look to McHenry County, where the partisanship is so strong Republicans have called for the county to become a gun sanctuary. In DuPage, Mendrick refused to answer calls from local reporters on his stance. He did not appear before the county board. But he was more than happy to share his concerns with like-minded listeners on AM 560’s “Black and Right” radio program and on Fox News’ “America Reports.” It’s a big step forward that Mendrick has agreed to enforce the law. Other dissenting sheriffs should follow suit. But let’s not forget: That was their job in the first place.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Nearly 40 residents speak about McHenry County resolution denouncing state gun ban. Resolution will move to full board despite concerns about ‘inflammatory’ language.” What are the Republican leaders of your county doing to make your county a gun sanctuary?
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/2023/01/31/nearly-40-residents-speak-about-mchenry-county-resolution-denouncing-state-gun-ban/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A resolution opposing the new Illinois gun ban is set to be considered by the McHenry County Board, but changes to the measure are almost certain to come, officials said. The resolution, which would affirm McHenry County’s stance against House Bill 5471, would not make the county a gun sanctuary as some have pushed for, but does denounce the new law, calling it unconstitutional and a violation of the Second Amendment. At the county’s Law and Government Committee meeting on Tuesday, more than 100 residents showed up, with nearly 40 of them speaking. As has been the case with previous meetings where this topic was discussed, those who spoke were divided on the topic. The resolution did not get enough votes on Tuesday to be recommended as written, with the committee split in a 3-3 vote. However, the resolution will still move on to the full County Board where it will be considered in a part of the agenda that will open it up for more discussion instead of the consent agenda where items are voted en masse and typically without discussion. The gun ban, passed by the Illinois General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker in early January, bans more than 100 different guns from being purchased, most of which are semi-automatic rifles, along with different attachments and caps the amount of ammunition certain guns can have. It also creates a requirement that owners of the newly banned guns eventually register them with the Illinois State Police. . .In addition to the resolution being considered, McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally has filed a lawsuit seeking to declare the law unconstitutional. Other lawsuits throughout the state – including one with a McHenry County gun shop on board – seek similar outcomes. Tuesday’s meeting also follows a statement by McHenry County Sheriff Robb Tadelman saying neither he or other deputies would enforce the registration provision of the bill. He joined roughly 80 other sheriffs in Illinois in making the declaration.)

DUPAGE COUNTY
— Joint Statement on DuPage County Public Safety (QUESTIONS: DuPage County has the second most residents of Illinois’ 102 counties. It has more residents than five states and the District of Columbia. What do the 80 Illinois County Sheriffs who object to the Protect Illinois Communities Act  (PICA) have to say about this? Have any of them been threatened with censure like Mendrick has been? So far, exactly what has Pritzker demanded that Illinois County Sheriffs do to implement the PICA? What will Pritzker demand that they do to implement the act? How do Illinois residents become “licensed” to own an assault weapon? Is it by having a FOID card? If Illinois residents become licensed to own assault weapons by having a FOID card, what about those in DuPage County who have assault weapons but do not have a FOID card? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from them? What if Pritzker gives Mendrick a list of residences in DuPage County that have assault weapons in them but no one living there has a FOID card? What if Pritzker demands that Mendrick go to those doors seeking to remove those assault weapons? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that after January 1, 2024, Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from those who have failed/refused to register them in their county?)
https://www.dupagecounty.gov/Content.aspx?id=67541
(THE STATEMENT: Statement attributable to DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, and DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin: “DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, Sheriff James Mendrick, and State’s Attorney Robert Berlin engaged in a meaningful conversation during which they discussed their shared commitment to the safety of DuPage County residents. The conversation also included discussion of Illinois’ new assault weapons ban, known as the Protect Illinois Communities Act. Enforcement of this law does not demand that deputies go door to door seeking to remove weapons from those licensed to own them. With this understanding, Sheriff Mendrick is committed to enforcing all state and local laws. Chair Conroy is committed to supporting the Sheriff’s Office in maintaining safe communities within DuPage County and sees no reason to pursue a censure resolution at this time. All parties look forward to positive, productive collaboration on important initiatives that will keep DuPage residents safe and ensure the security of our communities moving forward.”)

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— Illinois State Police enforcing state’s gun ban, reveal one case under investigation – Greg Bishop (COMMENT: Exactly what has Pritzker demanded that your County Sheriff do to enforce the Protect Illinois Communities Act? Is your County Sheriff complying with those demands? For example, what if someone in your county continues to sell assault weapons to residents of Illinois and Pritzker demands that your County Sheriff stop them?)
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/illinois-state-police-enforcing-state-s-gun-ban-reveal-one-case-under-investigation/article_6462dc04-a0f0-11ed-a9d5-d30cb6d205bd.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois State Police say they took enforcement action against a business for openly advertising the sale of newly banned weapons, but no additional information was provided. In a YouTube video Friday, gun-rights advocate Todd Vandermyde revealed he’d been told that the state is taking actions to enforce the state’s ban on certain semiautomatic guns and magazines. “It appears that there was a gun shop that was selling stuff, post the enactment,” Vandermyde said after sharing an anonymous tip that state police confiscated weapons from an individual. Monday, a spokesperson for Illinois State Police confirmed in a statement to The Center Square that ISP took enforcement action earlier this month against a business for “openly advertising the sale of banned weapons.” The statement said the investigation is ongoing and additional information wasn’t immediately available. Vandermyde cautioned what he sees transpiring. Cook County Sheriff “Tom Dart and everybody can say there aren’t going to be house-to-house searches, I would beg to differ with you, sheriff,” Vandermyde said. While Dart has said they will enforce the gun ban, most of the state’s 102 sheriffs have said they won’t. ISP said Monday state police are “charged with upholding all state laws, including enforcement of businesses that openly violate current laws.” The law is being challenged in several state and federal judicial circuits. In McHenry County Monday, a motion was made to move its gun-ban challenge from state court to federal court. In several separate pending federal cases, ISP made a motion to consolidate into a Crawford County case last week. Chief U.S. District Judge Nancy Rosenstengel, an Obama appointee, reassigned two of those cases to Stephen McGlynn, a Trump-appointed judge. “The action arises out of the same facts and is closely related to [the Illinois State Rifle Association’s] Harrel, et al. v. Raoul … which was filed before this action and is assigned to District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn,” Rosenstengel said. The Crawford County case Langley v. Kelly was the first lawsuit filed against Illinois’ gun ban in state court, but it was transferred to federal court after the ISRA case was filed in federal court with a judge assigned. ISRA’s Ed Sullivan said while there are several independent cases in Illinois courts alleging individuals’ Second Amendment rights are being infringed, “we also have to keep an eye on the price elsewhere as well,” including a Second Amendment case filed in Maryland. “Because what happens elsewhere certainly can influence what happens here, so I think Maryland is the most obvious target for us to keep an eye out,” Sullivan told The Center Square. In that Maryland case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit heard oral arguments Dec. 6. It’s unclear when a ruling would be rendered. Still pending in Illinois federal court is a ruling on a TRO in the challenge of Naperville’s gun ban. The judge in that case Monday notified the state that it is also a defendant after plaintiffs expanded their challenge last week. In a separate state challenge last week, state Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, filed a lawsuit against the state’s gun ban. Caulkins is the lead plaintiff with a new association called Law-Abiding Gun Owners of Macon County. Attorney Thomas DeVore filed to intervene, claiming he has clients that don’t want to be part of a group he said may not stand legal scrutiny. “Dan is trying to take the position that my clients are members of an association that they never heard of and they never agreed to join and that could place some risk on them,” DeVore told The Center Square. “The attorney general might want to start deposing them.” DeVore filed an Effingham County challenge on behalf of 866 named plaintiffs. It is pending an appellate court decision of a lower court’s temporary restraining order blocking the law. A ruling on a TRO is pending in a White County case where DeVore represents nearly 1,700 named plaintiffs. Caulkins’ attorney Jerry Stock labeled DeVore’s filing as a “side show.” Stock argued he doesn’t need hundreds of plaintiffs in a case to prove the law is unconstitutional. “There was no way I was going to attempt to represent hundreds of clients when the remedy sought is a judgment, not the temporary time out,” Stock told The Center Square. “While we’ll seek that on this path, the real goal was to knock this legislation out. I thought that my firm taking a fee based on the volume of clients was not something I could be comfortable with ethically.” Stock said he wasn’t casting aspersions and people can hire any attorney they want, but he “very strongly disagrees” with DeVore’s approach. “I think it’s a far more liberal way of pursuing the claims,” Stock said. “And not having to implicate every individual gun owner or to charge every individual gun owner a fee, because it just was not necessary.” A hearing in Caulkins’ case is set for Friday in Macon County.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— The gun ban law won’t protect us from criminals – Randy Illg, Union
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/30/letter-the-gun-ban-law-wont-protect-us-from-criminals/
(FROM THE LETTER: The supposed intent of the gun ban law is to make us all safe. After the governor signed it, did you feel safer? Did you sleep better last night? The actual intent of the ban is to remove all small arms from civilian ownership. The Second Amendment deals with this because the men who wrote it understood that a defenseless citizenry is the breeding ground for dictators to take control. Law enforcement personnel, from the lowest rank to the state attorney, make value judgments every day. If they didn’t, every one of us would be driving 45 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, and every arrest would automatically result in prosecution. Why didn’t you cry foul when cities decided to become sanctuary cities for illegal aliens? Where was your outrage then? If you believe that this law will make us safer, you are mistaken. Criminals do not respect the law. Why don’t you call the governor of California and ask him how gun control is working for them? Criminals do not get FOID cards. They don’t go through the same training and licensing process as law-abiding citizens. Criminals don’t care about anyone but themselves. The only thing that will stop a criminal threat to your life is force. Once you understand this, you will do the right thing, arm yourself, and join those of us who are willing to stand up for what is right. Sleep tight.)

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Trump calls DeSantis ‘disloyal’ for considering a 2024 presidential bid.” (COMMENT: Who have you been “disloyal” to? In the 2002 Illinois Republican gubernatorial primary, I backed Pat O/Malley. Ever since then, my anti-conservative and conservative-hating Jim Ryan promoting critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have viciously demonized me, viciously denigrated me, viciously condemned me, and viciously punished me for being “disloyal” to Jim Ryan. They ignore, dismiss, belittle, badmouth, demonize, denigrate, and condemn what I did to help elect Ryan in the general election in 2002. They continue to blame me and they continue to blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters a) for Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich in 2002 and b) for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2002 have suffered. They continue to demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me as being “too conservative.”)

— Stop calling semi-automatic rifles assault rifles – Patrick Donlea, Crystal Lake
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/29/letter-stop-calling-semi-automatic-rifles-assault-rifles/
(FROM THE LETTER: I understand many people use hyperbole to make their arguments sound more compelling. That being said, we have to stop calling any semi-automatic rifle designed and sold for civilian and police use an “assault rifle.” An assault rifle is a specific tool designed for and used by the military. Because of this, it should not be available for civilian or civil police use. The assault rifle is distinguished from the standard battle rifle by three primary characteristics that make it easier to use in close quarters, such as urban or jungle fighting. These characteristics are: 1. It’s comparatively short and light. 2.
It fires a less powerful, and, therefore lighter, round bullet. 3. It has a selective fire switch which allows it to shoot in either semi-automatic or fully automatic mode, such as firing three shot bursts as a third option. The last of these characteristics makes it a type of machine gun. This puts the assault rifle under the registration requirements of the National Firearms Act (NFA). It should be noted that Illinois law has already prohibited the possession of all NFA weapons, specifically machine guns, by Illinois residents since 1961 (720 ILCS 5/24). So, please stop calling a semi-automatic rifle a machine gun or assault rifle when discussing current gun laws. For the past 62 years, it has been illegal to own assault rifles in Illinois.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— 7 Lessons From Those Who Retired By FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). Equip yourself with the tools to enjoy early retirement. – Rachel Hartman (COMMENT: Because my Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those who ancestors had been America for a long time and who they had not promote to Senior Executive Service, currently $183,500/year by age 40, I planned on retiring as soon I became eligible for regular retirement in 2003 when I would be 55. But they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. Consequently my Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension is significantly less. My CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old.)

FORBES
— America Needs To Improve How It Treats Its Older Workers – Teresa Ghilarducci
https://www.forbes.com/sites/teresaghilarducci/2023/01/28/how-america-treats-its-older-workers-new-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Involuntary Retirement It is hard for older workers to keep a job, as Urban Institute’s Richard W. Johnson showed the economists gathered there. Older workers do worse under conditions of layoffs and business closures. Job-finding is easier for workers under 50 who get displaced from a job — more than 70% of displaced workers under 50 typically find new work within three years of their job loss. For workers 55-61, however, that number falls to 59%. Among those who can start claiming Social Security, at ages 62 and older the reemployment rate falls to just 38%. So they claim early Social Security benefits at reduced monthly benefits or they start bidding down and take jobs that are worse than their previous ones. Early retirement is an all-too-common last resort, and involuntary retirements increase the risk of depression and downward mobility. Labor market scarring is another effect of job loss beyond the pain of unemployment. Scarring refers to the earnings losses experienced by displaced workers who do manage to find work again. Once again, things get worse as you move up in age. Re-employed displaced workers, age 55-61, earn 22% less than they did before, a scarring effect that is more than twice as severe as for those in their 30s. Weekly earnings are 29% lower for reemployed displaced workers 62 and older.)

HR DRIVE
— COMMENT: Democrats say “6 diversity and inclusion trends to watch in 2023.” (COMMENT: Since I became a federal employee in 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)
https://www.hrdive.com/news/2023-diversity-and-inclusion-trends/641211/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A phenomenon Stamps said she’s been thinking about lately is medical challenges forcing early retirement. “If you’re forced to retire, you’re theoretically less prepared for retirement than the average [person] and you have more debt. That’s more challenging because now you have a sort of fixed income if you’re lucky. Getting any kind of fixed income that you have to depend on kind of perpetuates the racial wealth gap.”)

NASDAQ
— How to Save for Retirement Even When You’re in Your 20s and Broke – Mary Ellen Cagnassola (COMMENT: I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension in 1966 when I was 18 years old and started working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office. I earned full-time CSRS credits even though I worked only part-time. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious about that ever since then. I earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits working for IRS 1971-1980 and almost 18 years of CSRS credits working for GAO 1980-1997. My CSRS pension is dramatically reduced a) because my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors wasted my career and took many adverse actions against me and b) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Nevertheless, my CSRS pension is currently $63,144/year. But my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In addition, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)

FED SMITH
— The 2023 COLA is the largest in over 40 years. (COMMENT: My Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension increased from $58,101/year to $63,144/year, that is, by $5,043/year, that is, by 8.7%. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious about that. In my defense, my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. To qualify myself for better paying federal jobs, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 years old in 1970, b) I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and d) I earned a job-related professional license in 1981. I ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) what did they do to qualify themselves for better paying jobs and b) why didn’t they become federal employees?)

Ever-increasingly, because I was Republican, White, male, and older, the following meant absolutely nothing to them: a) my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) my earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) my becoming a licensed CPA in 1981, e) my becoming Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1996, and f) my earning a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.

— WHO WANTS TO BE WHITE? No one, apparently. “White privilege” is the privilege to be discriminated against. – Steve Sailer (COMMENT: Constructively, in Diersen v. GAO, the courts accepted GAO’s argument that Congress not only allows, but wants employers to give preference to their employees who are Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, that is, that Congress not only allows, but wants employers to discriminate against their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— COMMENT: Democrats ask “Bad candidates or not enough money?” and say “RNC officials debate why they lost in 2022. In a closed-door session during this week’s RNC meeting, two members working on the party’s 2022 audit debated whether “candidate quality” was to blame for midterm losses.” Ever-increasingly, in deciding which candidates to back in primaries and in nonpartisan races, conservative and Republican organizations give more and more and more weight to candidate demographics instead of candidate quadfurcations. Ever-increasingly, they give more and more and more preference to candidates who are minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about how conservative and Republican organizations have ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: a) GAO Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year, b) IRS Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year, c) I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, d) I became a licensed CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, and e) I earned an MBA from Loyola, master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. I should write a book about how the following ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. They would not have done that if I had been a minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or if my ancestors had not been in America for a long time.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Maine Republican Party elects Joel Stetkis as new chair.” In Illinois, anti-conservative Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO Republican Party leaders blame Republican losses on the Republican Party platform and on those who support it. They especially blame the individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I should write a book about the aforesaid anti-conservative Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization leaders.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Student loan forgiveness: Here’s the number of eligible borrowers who applied by US state.” In Illinois, the number of borrowers who applied or were automatically deemed eligible is 1,044,000. Did you get a student loan? I did not. First off, I doubt that I could have gotten a student loan. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of Crete-Monee High School class of 1966. My ACT was only 24. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My GPA and ACT would have been much higher if I had not washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights every evening Monday through Thursday during my junior and senior years and full-time during the summer in between. But if I had gotten a student loan, my GPA at UIC and at NIU would have been much higher and I would have majored in accounting instead of management. While I took classes at UIC 1966-1969 and at NIU 1969-1970, I worked as many hours as I possibly could for the Park Forest Post Office. Far too many times, I skipped classes on Mondays and on Fridays to work more hours.

UNITED STATE COAST GUARD
— How to spot and report retaliation – Arcady Darter (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat Post office superiors retaliated against me by disallowing my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forcing me to resign in 1969. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated against me by a) forcing me to take the aforesaid pay cut to transfer, b) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) not promoting me to GS-14, e) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 years 1986-1988, f) forcing the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, g) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Retaliation increased significantly after I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)
https://www.mycg.uscg.mil/News/Article/3271731/how-to-spot-and-report-retaliation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Workplace retaliation can take many forms and it is important for employees to understand how to identify retaliation and the ways to report it. But how does one determine if an action is retaliatory? 3 Elements of retaliation  Retaliation occurs when an employer takes actions or negative behaviors against an employee for engaging in legally protected Equal Employment Opportunity/Equal Opportunity (EEO/EO) activity such as reporting discrimination and harassment or participating in an investigation of harassment. Let’s break down the components of retaliation: First, for an employee or applicant to file a complaint on the basis of retaliation, they must have engaged in a protected activity. This means that the employee asserted their rights by filing an EEO/EO complaint, being a witness to an EEO/EO complaint, or simply contacting the Civil Rights Directorate for information regarding the complaint process. Pointing out exclusionary hiring practices, resisting sexual advances, or intervening to protect others from harassment or discrimination are also examples of protected activities. The second element of a retaliation claim is that after engaging in a protected activity, the employee or applicant suffers an unfavorable action from their employer. For instance, adverse actions can include being fired, being passed over for a promotion, or receiving low-performance reviews after speaking out and engaging in a protected activity. The final element of a retaliation claim is that there is a connection and evidence that shows the adverse action was taken because of the protected activity. This means that the employees’ participation in protected activity motivated the employer’s adverse action or behaviors.)

They ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A total of 31,457 IRS employees completed the 2019 FEVS. Of those respondents, 38.5% were males and 61.5% were females; 67% were white; 21% were African American, and 12% were of other races. Nearly 15% were Millennials or Zoomers. Responses were weighted to provide a representative sample. These demographic characteristics were quite similar for IRS participants in the 2020 and 2021 FEVS.)

— Play by the rules (COMMENT: What shows that someone has played by the rules? They got an education, they got a job, and they saved for their retirement. My outstanding parents encouraged me to play by the rules. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970) and three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997). I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I saved for my retirement.)
