Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Don Tracy Ally Jeanne Ives Attacks Grassroots on Facebook as Powerful Voter Base Abandons Angry Radio Host (COMMENT: My critics/opponents a) oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee members and/or b) oppose conservative principles. They a) have always been angry about positive things that Ives has done for me including appointing me to the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee and b) have always been overjoyed about adverse actions that Ives has taken against me including removing me from that committee. Recently, one of my biggest critics/opponents threw my precinct letter in her trash. In that letter, I had announced that Ives had appointed me to the aforesaid committee.)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/don-tracy-ally-jeanne-ives-attacks-grassroots-on-facebook-as-powerful-voter-base-abandons-angry-radio-host.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Monday, Illinois Republican State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives – a close ally to embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy – went on Facebook to publicly slam her own constituents – the conservative grassroots base of the party – for emailing and asking about an incident that took place during the state convention – angrily posting, “canned emails get a canned response.” Earlier on Monday, the powerful and influential base of the Republican Party – the grassroots – sent emails to IL GOP leaders including Ives, asking why SSC member Mark Shaw – who was running for national committeeman – was spotted wearing a “delegate” badge during the state convention when he was not an actual delegate. As a delegate, Shaw could vote for himself for national committeeman – a vote that wouldn’t help, as he would lose the election in a landslide to the grassroots-backed candidate Dean White. But growing agitated by the influx of emails concerning Shaw, Ives decided to go on her Facebook page and post a comment that read, “You send a canned email, you get a canned response…at least I replied to your canned email.” The comment drew an immediate backlash as Republicans fired back calling Ives’ comment “ignorant” and “belittling” to the constituents she’s supposed to represent.)

It’s been described by one Chicago police official as bigger than the 2012 NATO Summit and 1996 Democratic National Convention. – Jon Seidel and Michael Puente (COMMENT: I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997. Between 1993 and 1997, they used forced early retirement to get rid of their employees who were eligible and were White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time and who they had not promoted to GS-15 (currently $160,458-$191,900/year). All my GAO coworkers who were eligible to take early retirement and who had the aforesaid demographics a) cut under-the-table deals with my Democrat GAO superiors to keep their jobs as long as possible and b) flushed me down their toilets.

— Here’s what to expect from Friday’s big jobs report – Jeff Cox (COMMENT: According to Democrat and RINO leaders, illegals are happy to take bad jobs that American citizens refuse to take. What bad jobs did you take? I did yard work 1962-1964, delivered newspapers 1962-1966, washed dishes 1964-1966, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, delivered mail 1966-1969, worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971, pumped gasoline 1971-1972, collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. I grant that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take any of the aforesaid bad jobs that I took. But the answer is not to import illegals to take bad jobs. From what I see, many, most, if not virtually all illegals a) would not stoop to take the bad jobs that I took and/or are not qualified to take the bad jobs that I took.)

— ‘All soldiers remember their old battlefield.’ – Retired Major General John L. Borling Reflects on the 80th D-Day Anniversary on the Steve Cochran Show (COMMENT: Borling ran against the following in the 2004 Illinois Republican U.S. Senate primary: Jack Ryan, Jim Oberweis, Steve Rauschenberger, Andrew McKenna, Chirinjeev Kathuria, Jonathan C. Wright, and Norm Hill. I remember the primary like it was yesterday. I conducted a major straw poll at the 2003 Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) fundraiser in which more than 400 voted. Ryan won that straw poll. At the time, I was the MTRO webmaster and an officer of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition. Ryan won the primary, but then withdrew. The Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee replaced Ryan with Alan Keyes. Keyes lost to Obama. Obama then on when on to become President. Of course, my critics/opponents continue blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for the all of the aforesaid. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I rigged the MTRO straw poll for Ryan to win. In addition, they continue to blame me and blame my newsletters for Jim Ryan losing to Blagojevich in 2002. They stress that I supported Pat O’Malley in that primary. Constructively, increasingly, my critics/opponents blame me and blame my newsletters for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. Should I start writing about my critics/opponents?)

— Texas Democrats begin state convention in familiar position: out of power but hopeful – Gromer Jeffers Jr. (COMMENT: What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?)
https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2024/06/07/texas-democrats-begin-state-convention-in-familiar-position-out-of-power-but-hopeful/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Texas Democrats haven’t won a statewide election since 1994, putting them on the sidelines while Republicans have passed laws and implemented policies reflecting an increasingly conservative agenda. . .Lisa Turner, state director of the Democratic research group Lone Star Project, said Democrats should contrast themselves with Republicans, who last month approved a party platform that classifies abortion as homicide, seeks to ban transgender teachers in public schools and supports refusing birth certificates for children born to undocumented parents. “That is just otherworldly. It’s beyond MAGA crazy,” Turner said. “It’s really important that the party highlight our differences with Republicans, and they’ve never been clearer as to what it means for Texans. Our tagline as Democrats should be: ‘Join us. We’re the normal people party.’” Texas Republican Party Chairman Abraham George said his party better reflects the values of Texas voters, while state Democrats are weighed down by the policies of President Joe Biden. “From Joe Biden to the horrible economy and the open borders, the Texas Democrat Party is showing the signs that it isn’t with the people of Texas,” he said. The GOP platform, George said, was tough on issues like abortion but captured the mood of most Texas voters. “Those are values that average Texans will align with, regardless of their policies and politics,” he said. Democrats disagree, and they see an opening to reach voters. “Republicans have basically vacated the field on common-sense policies,” said state Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas. “If Democrats would pledge to run the state like a Fortune 500 company, we would be making so much more progress than Republicans are today.” . . . Democrats say they need to craft better a message to voters. In doing so, they want to steer away from culture war talking points and focus on bread and butter issues, including education, transportation, water, health care and the economy.

It is called patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, national origin discrimination, and misuse/abuse of veterans preference.

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— 6/5/24 PRESS RELEASE: This Isn’t the First Time Democrats Raised Taxes CHICAGO — Today, JB Pritzker signed legislation that pushed a BILLION dollars in new taxes onto Prairie State residents. Without billions in federal assistance, Governor Pritzker signed the largest tax-and-spend bill in Illinois HISTORY and is making you and your families pay for it. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time. . .”Illinois Democrats’ bloated budget, which is filled with hundreds-of-millions of dollars of new tax increases for pet projects, illegal immigrants and his socialist agenda, is bad for Illinois,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy. “Illinois families are dealing with Bidenflation, higher prices and more financial problems than ever before and Democrats’ solution is to take even more of their money. Pritzker needs to stop treating taxpayers as his personal piggy bank as he dreams of running for President and of being the far-left’s tax-and-spend darling.”

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: Judge rules unconstitutional Gov. J.B. Pritzker-backed election law that aided Democrats in November. – RICK PEARSON (COMMENT: U.S. President was the only contested race on the Republican primary ballot in my precinct. One office on the ballot would have been “no candidate” if it had not been filled by a write-in candidate.  As Democrat leaders ever-increasingly flood Illinois with voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats, anticipate/expect that because the likelihood of winning is less, fewer candidates will run for offices as Republicans and those who do run will be less qualified for the offices that they seek. Further, anticipate/expect that Republican leaders will ever-increasingly encourage only those who are the following to run: non-conservative, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German America, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Therefore, anticipate/expect that Republican organizations will ever-increasingly run candidates.)

PR NEWSWIRE
— Start sending releases with the largest and most trusted content distribution network (COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. The Illinois Republican Party (IRP) should issue press releases each and every day that show that the Democrat Party platform promotes poverty and crime and that the Republican Party platform promotes prosperity and safety. The IRP should focus on the following planks in the Republican Party platform: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). Constructively, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters do what the IRP should be doing. What the mainstream news media puts out a) is a summary of Democrat Party press releases and b) editorials made to look like news articles.)

— Two teens’ promising futures end on Eisenhower Expy. — allegedly struck by drunk driver. Erik C. Cox and Shealyn Sherwood, both 18, were killed when Ashanti Gates’ car struck them in the outbound lanes of the Eisenhower Expressway early Sunday, prosecutors said. The teens had stopped to fix a flat tire. – Matthew Hendrickson and Emmanuel Camarillo (COMMENT: When you were in high school, did you have a “promising future,” were you viewed as being “college material?” I was not. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. Because they did not have money to pay my college expenses, if I was accepted by a college, I would have to work my way through college. I could not run because I had a bone disease. My vision could not be corrected to 20/20. I had partial red/green color blindness. I spend my junior and senior years and the summer in between washing dishes. Nevertheless, I took college preparatory courses, I got an ACT score of 24, I graduated in the upper 20% of my class, and I got accepted by UIC. My brother was not so fortunate I believe because he was wrongly held back in first grade.)

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-RIGHT SOURCES

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What does your political future look like for you? My political future looks ever-increasingly bleak. I fully anticipate/expect that anti-Diersen leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Illinois Republican Party (IRP) will do more and more and more to get one of my Republican voters in my precinct to run against me and defeat me for my precinct committeeman position. Recently a DCRCC leader angrily/rudely told me that she had thrown my April 2024 precinct letter in the trash. A copy of that precinct letter is at the end of this newsletter. They will do more and more and more a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading those newsletters. They will build on their past successes including: a) removing me from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee, b) ending my role as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, c) ending my bid to be selected to fill a Wheaton City Council vacancy in 2019, d) gerrymandering my precinct in 2015, e) ending my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, f) ending my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, g) ending my role as the MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, h) ending my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) steering Committee membership in 2007, i) almost getting ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, j) ending my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004, and k) ending my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors membership in 2004. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— QUESTION: What emboldens people to take adverse actions against other people? ANSWER: They believe that they can get away with it. They have more power than their victims. They know that their victims forgive those who trespass against them. I should write a book about those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial power in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who reject the most planks in the Republican Party platform. I would focus on those who most vehemently oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee members. Should I abandon my policy of forgiving those who take adverse actions against me? – Dave Diersen

They have always stressed the many big adverse actions that they have taken against me. They have always stressed the adverse actions that my superiors in the federal government took against me. They stress that to justify forcing me to take early retirement, my Democrat GAO superiors stressed that a) they had delayed my promotions and had never promoted me beyond GS-13, b) they had always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, c) they had kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I had worked for GAO, and d) they had forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They stressed that they had taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me even though a) I had earned job-related professional certifications in 1997, 1996, 1994, 1990, 1981, and 1979, b) I had earned job-related master’s degrees in 1997, 1980, and 1976, and c) I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97.079-$110,020/year. Previously, they stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors a) had never promoted me beyond GS-12, b) had disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and c) had disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974. Previously, they stressed at my Democrat Post Office superiors a) had forced me to resign in 1969 and b) had disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

https://abc7chicago.com/post/mayor-brandon-johnson-local-leaders-raise-progress-pride/14906569/
— Democrats ever-increasingly use Juneteenth to promote more hatred against Republicans. My Democrat superiors in the federal government had great success in promoting hatred against Republicans. I became eligible to take early retirement in 1993 when I was 45 years old. I was able to survive another 4 years before my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” and gave by Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office. If there had been as much Democrat-generated hatred within GAO against Republicans back then as there is now, they would have succeeded in forcing me to retire much sooner. They forced me to retire when I was 49 years old in 1997 even though I had earned my third job-related master’s degree and my sixth job-related professional certification that year. Previously, I had earned job related professional certifications in 1996,1994,1990, 1981, and 1979 and I had earned a job-related professional license in 1981.

— After Would-Be Illinois GOP Candidates Sue, Judge Considering Whether Slated Candidates Can Appear on November Ballot – Hannah Meisel (COMMENT: U.S. President was the only contested Republican primary race in my precinct. One office would have been “no candidate” if it had not been filled by write-in. As Democrats ever-increasingly run Illinois, anticipate/expect fewer and fewer and fewer candidates will run as Republicans. Further, anticipate/expect that fewer and fewer and fewer of them will be conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, non-poor, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
https://news.wttw.com/2024/06/03/after-would-be-illinois-gop-candidates-sue-judge-considering-whether-slated-candidates
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Sangamon County judge is weighing whether to block a new state law that bans the long-practiced tradition of political parties slating candidates for a general election after sitting out of a primary race. Democrats who control the General Assembly pushed the measure through the legislative process and Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed it into law in a matter of days last month, arguing that slating is unfair to voters who didn’t get a say in a primary contest. Several would-be Republican candidates then sued over the law, claiming it’s unfair to ban the practice in the middle of an election cycle.)

To be a Democrat is to promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation, discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

— Speaker Mike Johnson’s Illinois swing – SHIA KAPOS
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2024/06/03/speaker-johnsons-illinois-swing-00161230
(FROM THE ARTICLE: PEORIA, Illinois: U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson headlined the annual Peoria-Tazewell Lincoln Day Dinner, where he railed on the guilty verdicts against Donald Trump and pumped up the IL-17 congressional race. It was a scene: More than 400 Republican attendees gathered to hear Johnson speak at the Four Points by Sheraton Peoria. Reporters weren’t allowed into the ballroom, but Johnson did speak to us before the event. On Trump: Johnson said, “He is not just our nominee, not just an individual running for president. I think now he’s seen as a symbol, a symbol of one who is willing to fight back against that corruption, the deep state and all the rest.” Here’s POLITICO’s full report with quotes from Illinois Republicans Joe Walsh, Jeanne Ives, Rhonda Belford and Jim Rule. During the presser: Johnson stood with Congressman Darin LaHood (IL-16) and Joe McGraw, a retired judge who’s challenging incumbent Democratic Congressman Eric Sorensen in the IL-17 District in November.)

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-RIGHT SOURCES

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— PRESS RELEASE: Democrat Fear Mongering Reaches Absurdity. CHICAGO — Last week, Illinois Congressman Eric Sorensen, declared that our economy would shut down in THREE days if we secure our border. “The economy of the United States would end in 3 days. We have 3 days of what we need in the United States, so if we just shut down the entire southern border, it would be to the detriment of our country.” – Eric Sorensen Bottom Line: Our southern border is a national security threat as we’ve seen record crossings of migrants after Biden’s reversal of the Trump Administration border policies. We can’t afford naive, fear-mongering Democrats like Sorensen that vote against legislation to secure our border and destroy the Republican agenda to secure our border.

The rainbow’s ever-increasing colors will be inescapable. We will see it in the news. We’ll see it at Target. We’ll see it in Walmart. We’ll see it in our public parks and at our schools. We’ll see it in our theaters. We’ll see it on T-shirts, umbrellas, bumper stickers, and even at our churches. Pride, pride, pride! This is the singular message that silences all others. Say it with me and say it over and over again: “We are loud and are proud!” If you refuse to do so, you’re a bigot.)

https://www.theguardian.com/science/brain-flapping/2013/aug/06/anger-aggression-psychology-screw-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, it’s often difficult to do anything about these frustrations, so it’s likely to result in displaced aggression. This is where you can’t respond to the thing that’s frustrating you due to it being unavailable or, more frustratingly, something or someone who has the greater ability to harm you if you react. The arousal of anger doesn’t dissipate quickly, so it’s often transferred to less deserving but more convenient targets.)

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-LEFT SOURCES

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Illinois Republicans slam Trump conviction. ‘Stalin would be proud’ said state Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich. Even more moderate Illinois Republicans who don’t support the former president said they were “troubled” by the case that resulted in a conviction on 34 felony counts in New York. – Mitchell Armentrout
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2024/05/31/donald-trump-hush-money-conviction-illinois-republicans-reaction
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a state where Donald Trump has divided many Republicans, Illinois GOP leaders were united in their condemnation of the former president’s conviction for falsifying business records, blasting what they deemed a “sham trial,” a “fraud case” — and downright “chicken s—.” Soon after a New York jury on Thursday found the presumptive GOP presidential nominee guilty in a hush-money case, Illinois Republican Party chairman Don Tracy called it “a political prosecution the likes of which occur in banana republics but not previously in these United States.” “Democrat activist investigators and prosecutors have relentlessly hounded President Trump for years,” Tracy said in a statement. “This weaponization of the judicial system has weakened our country here and in the eyes of the world, which I’m sure President Biden will savor while he vacations in Delaware as his handlers make critical decisions for the country.” Illinois Republican National Committee member Richard Porter, who has criticized Trump — and who backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the GOP presidential primary — accused Democrats of “perverting the judicial system for political purposes.” “Everyone sees what happened in Manhattan, the second most Democrat county in the nation — where Democrat prosecutors are trying to take his money, with a fraud case in which no one was defrauded, and take his liberty with a criminal case in which no crime was committed,” Porter said in an email. “It’s just another example of how Democrats turn all institutions against the people they are supposed to be serving. Democrats will rue the day that they chose this path,” he said, suggesting President Joe Biden could face prosecution down the line. “There are many, many more Republican county prosecutors than Democrat county prosecutors across the country, and they are watching what the New York County district attorney did and are taking notes,” Porter said. “Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, too.” How will the Biden campaign exploit the Trump hush money guilty verdict? Even self-declared “Never-Trump” Illinois Republicans slammed the verdict, including former Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, who said he was “troubled by how this case was charged.” “People in Manhattan were looking for a reason to convict. He was low-hanging fruit, based on electoral results in that area,” Durkin said, adding that he thought the case should have been brought to election authorities, not a criminal court. “It’s easy to dislike Donald Trump… But I also have respect for the way the justice system is applied, and I thought this was an egregious example of selective prosecution by the Manhattan district attorney,” Durkin said. “Now he can say he got a conviction on Donald Trump. I’m still not sure what crime it was.” The barbs were even sharper from Republicans downstate, where Trump remains immensely popular outside the solid blue Chicago area. “Joseph Stalin would be proud,” said state Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich, a member of the far-right Illinois Freedom Caucus of the General Assembly. “The Democrats have shown that they cannot be trusted to be anywhere near power. They must be stopped and the only way to do that is for Donald Trump to win in a landslide in November.” Fellow Freedom Caucus Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, bemoaned “the trampling of our Constitution by the worst people imaginable.” “The same people who allow criminals to murder, rape, and commit unspeakable acts of violence have the audacity to prosecute a former President of the country,” Wilhour said in a statement. “The American people see right through this, and they will come out in huge numbers to vote for President Trump because they understand the battle facing us is not one of politics and political disagreement — it is truly good versus evil.” Former gubernatorial and congressional candidate Darren Bailey — and a former Freedom Caucus member until he gave up his southern Illinois state Senate seat — exclaimed on social media: “I don’t cuss, but this is chicken s—!” Rep. Mike Bost, a staunch Trump supporter who beat Bailey as GOP nominee for the 12th Congressional District, said “New York’s six-week sham trial against President Trump has eroded the public’s trust in our legal system in a way that will take years to overcome… Even after today’s verdict, he is strengthened with an American public that is fed up with liberals weaponizing the legal system for their partisan political gain.” Rep. Darin LaHood, the central Illinois congressman who has periodically criticized Trump but endorsed his 2024 comeback bid, said, “This political prosecution undermines the rule of law and faith in our justice system. It should be overturned on appeal.” LaHood is hosting House Speaker Mike Johnson Saturday at the Peoria-Tazewell Lincoln Day Dinner, a marquee event on the state GOP calendar. “This was a purely political exercise, not a legal one,” Johnson said in a statement. “President Trump will rightfully appeal this absurd verdict—and he WILL WIN.”)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: Not surprisingly, suburban political leaders divided on Trump verdict – Russell Lissau
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240531/nation-and-world-politics/not-surprisingly-suburban-political-leaders-divided-on-trump-verdict/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Across the aisle, Will County Republican Party Chair Christina Clausen defended Trump and said the verdict “represents a profound crisis for our democratic process.” Clausen, of Homer Glen, alleged the trial was unfair and said the verdict interferes with the upcoming presidential election.
“It is deeply troubling that, despite living in what many consider the most free and fair society in history, a judge and prosecutor in New York City can wrongfully condemn and imprison one of our nation’s greatest presidents,” said Clausen, overlooking that a jury handed down the verdict. “I stand firmly with Donald Trump during these challenging times and hope that justice will prevail, demonstrating his innocence to the world.” Republican congressional candidate Mark Rice of Chicago, who’s challenging Democratic U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi of Schaumburg in the entirely suburban 8th District, said he expects the verdict will be overturned by an appellate court. “What a farce,” Rice said Friday in a Facebook post. . .In a statement on social media, Seth Cohen, a Skokie resident and the GOP’s nominee for Illinois’ 9th Congressional District seat, supported “the role and authority” of the justice system while “respectfully” disagreeing with the verdict. Cohen also said he opposes the weaponization of the system by members of either major political party. Cohen is vying to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky in the 9th District, which includes parts of Cook, Lake and McHenry counties. . .Republican state Rep. Martin McLaughlin of Barrington Hills turned to social media after the verdict, posting a photo of the U.S. flag displayed outside his office and a jab at the people of New York City. “I left the office flag flying high and proud,” wrote McLaughlin, of the 52nd District. “Thankfully there are still a lot of ‘Old Souls’ still present in our Great Nation if not in Manhattan. Blue skies ahead.”)

MSNBC
— Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters say “The Texas GOP’s new platform is a terrifying preview of MAGA’s future. There are many, many horrors to behold in the latest platform.” Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions have never been anywhere near as conservative as the Texas GOP platforms and resolutions. But nevertheless, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents and Independent plants, and RINOs who run Republican organizations in Illinois have always a) demonized, denigrated, and condemned Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions as being too conservative and b) blamed Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions for Republican defeats.
https://www.msnbc.com/opinion/msnbc-opinion/texas-republican-party-platform-trump-rcna154805
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now, their latest platform, which delegates voted on last weekend, endorses the conspiracist “great reset” theory, declares that “abortion is not health care, it is homicide,” and calls for a new election law requiring candidates running for statewide offices to win a majority of Texas’ 254 counties, effectively barring any Democrat from the position. And that’s just the start. Yet the chief politics reporter for the Austin American Statesman just called the platform “more of a wish list for the most activist members of the GOP than a road map that will be followed to the letter by lawmakers in Austin or Washington.” Even the Texas Tribune’s otherwise thoughtful, comprehensive reporting on the convention describes the party platform as “traditionally … seen not as a definitive list of Republican stances, but a compromise document that represents the interests of the party’s various business, activist and social conservative factions.” . . . There are many, many horrors to behold in the latest platform, and they must be taken seriously not in spite of how terrifying the document is, but because of how terrifying the document is. It is because the latest Texas GOP platform endorses “prohibiting the teaching of sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity” that we should take it seriously. It is because the platform equates abortion and murder that we should take it seriously. It is because the platform aims to ban any Democrat — and indeed, any noncompliant Republican — from ever holding statewide office, that we should take it seriously.)

He disapproved of my having avoided the Vietnam War draft, my having more education than he did, my having been a federal employee for almost 3 years, my being Protestant, my being German American, and my ancestors having been in America for a long time. In 1980, when I transferred from IRS to GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors were furious that they could just fire me because I had already passed the federal employee probationary period while I worked for IRS.)

During that time, I bought a new Corvette, a new town home, and a studio condo and I completed 12 graduate evening business courses at Loyola. But then my Democrat IRS superiors got rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. Then the good old days for me were 1986-1988 when the GAO manager who had arranged my transfer from IRS in 1980 was finally able to get me assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986 and to promote me to GS-13 (currently $115,439/year) in 1986. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $123,136/year in 1988. But then my Democrat GAO superiors got rid of him.)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— Illinois Republican Party Responds to President Trump Verdict Following the verdict in the New York trial of President Trump, Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy released the following statement: “Let’s call this trial what it really is: a political prosecution the likes of which occurs in banana republics but not previously in these United States. Democrat activist investigators and prosecutors have relentlessly hounded President Trump for years. First, they challenged the legitimacy of his election in 2016 thru the Russian collusion hoax. Then, they strove to defeat his re-election in 2020 thru impeachments and the Hunter Biden laptop coverup. Then, they indicted him and his supporters to tarnish his legacy in an effort to re-elect President Biden. This weaponization of the judicial system has weakened our country here and in the eyes of the world, which I’m sure President Biden will savor while he vacations in Delaware as his handlers make critical decisions for the country.”

But if I had not been removed from the 2024 IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee, I would have advocated for a platform and for resolutions that would have given more priority and more emphasis to promoting personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, enforcement of immigration laws, discouragement of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, protection of Second Amendment rights, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving).

https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2024/05/31/illinois-republicans-say-the-fix-was-in-00160956
(FROM THE ARTICLE: PLEDGING ALLEGIANCE: Illinois Republicans and a certain former governor rallied behind Donald Trump after a Manhattan jury found him guilty Thursday on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in a hush money criminal trial. A sentencing hearing is set for July 11, four days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. Some of the reax: The Illinois GOP issued a statement comparing the legal proceedings to “banana republics.” Darren Bailey, who got Trump’s support when he ran for governor, called it “a dark day for America.” And Ogle County GOP Chair Mike Koolidge predicts the verdicts will “energize voters like nothing else has before — and in Trump’s favor.” Deja vu for you know who: Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, whose prison term on corruption charges was commuted by Trump, said: “When you’ve lived through it yourself you recognize when they do it to someone else … the political fix was in.” The Democrat turned Trump-ocrat, as Blagojevich likes to describe himself, said the verdict was made by “a handpicked politicized Dem judge who denied a former President a chance to put on a defense and allowed ridiculously unlawful jury instructions,” via X. Illinois Democrats had another take, of course. Gov. JB Pritzker, who is a surrogate on the campaign trail for President Joe Biden, issued a statement saying: “Justice has been served. … Donald Trump is a racist, a homophobe, a grifter, and a threat to this country. He can now add one more title to his list — a felon. But let me be clear, Donald Trump will never be 47.” Mayor Brandon Johnson called Trump “a con artist, a bigot, and an embarrassment of a former president. And now, he’s a convicted felon,” on his social media account. Congresswoman Robin Kelly (IL-02) called Trump “a loser in court and now we must beat him at the ballot box.” And Sen. Dick Durbin, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, offered this: “As I’ve said all along: no one is above the law — not even a former president.” Republicans and Democrats agree on one point made by Trump outside the courtroom: “The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5 by the people.”)

My IRS employee manual encouraged me to take those courses. But in 1978, to get rid of me, my Democrat GAO superiors disallowed those courses.)

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

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

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

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

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

In today’s dollars, my father never made more than $50,000/year. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. My mother did not work outside the home until he died suddenly in 1969. Consequently, I had to work my way through college.)

— QUESTION: What do Democrat employers do to hire, retain, and promote Democrats who are minority and/or female? ANSWER: They lower hiring, retention, and promotion requirements. While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years, they ever-increasingly lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements. That ever-increasingly rendered worthless my job-related a) bachelor’s degree (1970), b) three master’s degrees (1976, 1980, and 1997), c) six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and d) professional license (1981).

They hint/imply/argue/shout that I am “too conservative” and even worse things and that because of that, the more that do to help elect them, the more votes that they will lose.

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

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

— Prairie Band Potawatomi land deal clears Illinois Senate, returns to House – PETER HANCOCK (COMMENT: If you run for a government office or for a political office as a Republican, anticipate/expect that sooner or later, if any of your ancestors homesteaded a farm, Democrats and RINOs will use that against you. They will hint/imply/argue/shout that you directly, substantially, and unfairly benefitted from that and that therefore, you should pay reparations. If I ran for an office, they would stress a) that my ancestors on my father’s side homesteaded a 240-acre farm in southeast Crete Township in 1854, b) that they sold that land and bought 10 acres just northeast of downtown Crete in 1864, c) that my grandfather had a home built on that land in 1926, d) that I lived in that home 1954-1972, and e) that I inherited that home and sold it in 2022.)

Ira Acree said the City Council and most agency boards should be vacated if alderpeople now want to only go off experience. – Mack Liederman (COMMENT: GAO audits IRS. After working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year, I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old.
