(FROM THE ARTICLE: A victim was wounded Saturday in the parking lot of the Ford City Mall while trying to fend off an attempted car theft. The victim, a 46-year-old man, was walking towards his parked vehicle outside the JCPenny store in the 7600-block of S Cicero around 12:40 p.m. when he saw someone trying to get into his car, according to police. The victim, who is a FOID and CCL holder, exchanged gunfire with the offender before the offender jumped in a nearby vehicle and fled, causing a traffic crash in the 79000-block of S. Pulaski Rd in the process, police said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the hand and thigh, and was transported to Christ Hospital in fair condition. The offender sustained a graze wound to the head and was taken to the hospital in good condition, officials said. Three offenders were taken into custody and charges are pending.)

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.

— 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 “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.)

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 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. 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.)

— Democrats Know The Real Purpose Of The Second Amendment — That’s Why They’re So Afraid Of It – MICHELE GAMA SOSA
https://dailycaller.com/2023/01/27/gama-sosa-second-amendment-democrats-purpose/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Second Amendment is once again in the Democrats’ crosshairs amid mass shootings, with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s latest “assault weapons” ban, and now Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claiming that the Founding Fathers would have supported banning certain guns. Democrats have made a lot of noise about banning “military-style” weapons and “weapons of war,” particularly the AR-15 platform – their favorite punching bag – in the name of stopping shootings mostly committed in the ghettos of Democrat-run cities such as Los Angeles, New Orleans, Detroit and most famously Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago. Obviously, this is a false proposition. Criminals don’t register guns or obey the law – they’re criminals. Armed civilians deter crime, whether with “military-style” weapons or a Taurus G3C Subcompact. Gun advocates have made this argument repeatedly. Unfortunately, it falls short and even helps justify bans like the Illinois one. If a subcompact with a five-round magazine is enough for self-defense, then it shouldn’t be a problem if Chicago, for instance, bans anything over 10 rounds, full autos and certain long guns. Because as Democrats argue, you don’t need an M4 to shoot a criminal or hunt. But history says there’s more to the Second Amendment. When the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it was a shock to the world of monarchs and tyrants who kept their populations in line by force and decree. Its protections make America unique. Virtually no country has anything close to it. It gave meaning to the idea of being a citizen of a nation instead of the subject of a despot.)

— COMMENT: Those who want to abolish the Second Amendment ask “CAN ILLINOIS’ ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN SURVIVE SCORES OF ROGUE COUNTY SHERIFFS?” How successful have Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs been in demonizing, denigrating, and condemning the Second Amendment plank in the Republican Party platform in your county and in your township? I should write a book about the success that they have had in DuPage County and in Milton Township. The leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and leaders of the nine DuPage County Republican township party organizations fail/refuse to defend the Second Amendment plank in the Republican Party platform.

HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW
— To Make Lasting Progress on DEI, Measure Outcomes – Lily Zheng (COMMENT: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my Democrat superiors’ top priority was a) retaining and promoting their Democrat employees who were minority, female, and/or younger and b) getting rid of their Republican employees who were White, male, and/or older.

— What Do You Like About Your Job? – Art Markman (COMMENT: I worked for GAO 1980-1997. For the last 8 years, I worked on audits of federal financial industry regulators. GAO’s mission is to provide Congress with fact-based, nonpartisan information that can help improve federal government performance and ensure accountability for the benefit of the American people. That mission helped fight tremendous efforts by my Democrat GAO superiors to waste my GAO career and to get rid of me. That mission motivated me a) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, b) to pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, c) to become a licensed CPA in 1981, d) to become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, e) to become a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, f) to become a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, g) to become a Forensic Accountant in 1997, and h) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. My Democrat GAO superiors threw all of the aforesaid away when they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 so that they could give my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.

WIKIPEDIA
— Aggression (COMMENT: What factors have discouraged you from being aggressive? My parents, my grandparents, and the rest of my ancestors were not aggressive. None of them engaged in any kind of aggressive sports like football. My father fought type 1 diabetes from childhood. Neither of my parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant and almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. My mother never attended high school. My mother stayed home and raised me and my brother. My parents had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL), raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL. My parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest to stay with the Missouri Synod. Ever since I developed a bone disease in grade school, I have not been able to run. I washed dishes during my junior and senior years in high school and the summer in between. I have never been in the military. Because of my lack of aggression, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have felt free to take adverse actions against me and they have taken many major adverse actions against me. In my defense, I have filed lawsuits.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “DuPage County sheriff criticized for refusing to enforce new Illinois assault weapons ban.”
https://abc7chicago.com/illinois-assault-weapon-ban-2023-gun-laws-new-dupage-county-sheriff/12728795/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mendrick issued a statement Monday afternoon saying in part, “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County. In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes…” “In his estimation they’re asking him to go after legal gun owners and that’s where he has a problem with the law,” said former Republican state representative Jeanne Ives. Enforcement of the assault weapons ban is likely to get a lot of discussion during Tuesday morning’s DuPage County board meeting. Leaders on both sides are encouraging supporters to show up. Monday afternoon the state of Illinois filed an appeal to a judge’s ruling that put the assault weapons ban on hold for some parties. That temporary restraining order that came down Friday night and only applies to four federal firearm license dealers and 862 Illinois citizens who are signed plaintiffs in a downstate lawsuit against the law.)

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/assault-weapons-ban-sparks-war-of-words-between-dupage-county-sheriff-and-lawmakers/3052479/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement released Monday afternoon, Mendrick struck back at the lawmakers saying, “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation.” “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” he added. A downstate Illinois judge on Friday granted a temporary restraining order in a case challenging the legality of the assault weapons ban, effectively halting enforcement of the law for the more than 800 plaintiffs. All but a handful of Illinois’ county sheriffs have said they won’t enforce the ban. Many of them did so by posting letters almost identical to Mendrick’s.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a lengthy statement released on Monday, Mendrick again criticized the new law as “poorly written” and for having “no clear direction on who will be enforcing new gun laws.” He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “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 the statement. “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. They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns.”)

https://wgntv.com/news/dupage-county/dupage-co-elected-officials-discuss-local-sheriffs-refusal-to-enforce-assault-weapons-ban/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 13, Mendrick announced that due to his personal beliefs on the act, he would not enforce the law in DuPage County. He is one of many county sheriffs across Illinois to voice such a statement. Enforcement of the law is currently suspended due to a judge’s ruling on Friday in Effingham after multiple lawsuits were filed to overturn the ban. Mendrick released a statement in response to the Monday meeting, where he states he was ‘berated’ and ‘admonished’ but is pleased to hear the suspension of the law. He also questions officials’ goals in combating gun violence. Mendrick claims that he requested increasing penalties for gun crimes and stresses gun laws tied to criminal activity, making domestic violence a top priority for him. “This is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” Mendrick said. The DuPage County Board is meeting Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. and is inviting constituents to submit questions and statements they have in regard to the matter.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In an interview with the Chicago Tribune last week, Mendrick said he planned on staying out of the statewide outcry among other sheriffs about the new law but said the concerns he heard from his own deputies and regular citizens were too much to ignore. “The first couple of days, I was actually trying to call people back personally. But everyone would keep me on the phone for 30, 40 minutes apiece. Every citizen I talked to wanted to vent on all of this stuff,” said Mendrick. “The way the law was released scared society. I know it wasn’t the intent. But it did. It scared everybody who owns guns.” “Gun owners, lawful gun owners, this makes them feel that their rights are being infringed upon, that this is just the beginning,” said Mendrick. “How much further will it go after this?” He said he tries to “comply with everything I can” but believes the new law, as written, is incomplete. While the ban says that current owners of high-capacity magazines are required to register them with the Illinois State Police by April and high-powered weapons by Jan. 1, Mendrick is concerned over whether he’ll have the police resources to enforce the law. “If you’re expecting us to be the arm of this, how? Tell me where I get the people,” he said. . .In a follow-up statement after the news conference, Mendrick said the law is poorly written and has no clear direction as to who will be enforcing it. He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “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 the statement. “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.

DAILY HERALD

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20230123/were-not-going-to-let-this-die-push-for-dupage-sheriff-to-retract-weapons-ban-statement-grows
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier this month, Mendrick issued a statement that said he believed the state’s new ban on high-powered guns and high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. “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 noncompliance of this Act,” Mendrick’s statement reads. . .”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 a written statement. “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. “They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns,” he said. Mendrick, who had previously suggested he believed compliance checks would be tied to the law, also took note that lawmakers on Monday said they would not be asking officers to go door to door to ensure weapons were legally registered. “That is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” his statement read. . .In his statement Monday, Mendrick, a Republican, said it was “disheartening” to hear Stava-Murray suggest he would not enforce the law when he has said he would enforce the weapons ban when it involves other illegal activity. “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation,” Mendrick said. . .During a nearly hourlong interview over the weekend on AM-560’s “Black and Right” radio program, Mendrick was critical of the weapons ban, claiming sheriffs were not consulted in drafting the new law. Mendrick also questioned what happens after Jan. 1, 2024, the deadline for gun owners to register weapons. Though state lawmakers Monday said they would not seek door-to-door compliance checks, Mendrick said a Jan. 16 conversation with Casten suggested otherwise. The sheriff said Casten suggested that if police officers would go to the door of a home filled with Molotov cocktails, then Mendrick “should be fine going to the doors of people’s homes for the new gun laws.” “That reinforced my belief that we were going to be saddled with a manpower challenge that would be insurmountable, to say the least,” Mendrick said Monday. . .”If we go to doors to check for lawful gun owners, we won’t be available to answer 911 calls anymore,” Mendrick said during the radio program, adding that he would need to send three officers to a home to check for weapons. He also noted he is down 30 deputies and has gone from having 18 deputies on each shift to 11.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2023/01/victims_wanted__no_experience_necessary_apply_within.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When it’s not creating social injustices to overcome, the Left is busy creating victims to maintain its voter base. In contemporary America, the Democratic Party voter base is composed primarily of individuals who perceive themselves to be disadvantaged, disenfranchised, marginalized, or in some fashion, left out. They feel, in some sense, victimized. With the actual numbers of those truly victimized declining markedly in recent decades, the party needs to perpetuate perceived victimhood to maintain its political appeal. The party excels in generating victims over a broad spectrum of societal factions through identity politics and its D-E-I agenda. People of color. Victims of white privilege. Any failings they may experience are due solely to an oppressive social structure based in white supremacy. They are entitled to equity-based advancement and, as now proposed in California, reparations, in return for loyalty at the ballot box. Women. Victims of misogyny and patriarchy, even though they now surpass males in educational achievement and the number of women in the workforce now equals or slightly exceeds the number of men. The overturning of Roe v. Wade has exacerbated their victimhood. Access to safe abortion is a human right! Women lacking access to abortion are victims. Aborted fetuses are not — they can’t vote. “My body, my choice!“ is the mantra. One wonders what “my body, my choice” has to do with a fetus’s body? Does “my body, my choice” sanction suicide? The LGBTQ community. They are victims of heterosexual bigotry (although being homosexual didn’t seem to hold back Alexander the Great, Leonardo da Vinci, Tim Cook, Oscar Wilde, Elton John, etc.). Under wokeism’s exalting of gender dysphoria, 33% of students at liberal arts colleges now identify as LGBTQ. 21% of Gen Z are self-declared LGBTQ. The incidence of those who identify as something other than hetero has risen from 3.5% in 2012 to 7.1% in the general public. Not all this sharp escalation can be reasonably attributed to an increased comfort with “coming out,” but is more certainly a consequence of woke activism. Our youth. Herein lies the greatest source of potential victims. First, strip them of societal connectivity. Debase America, patriotism, religion, family structure, gender identity, even commitment to a first name. Turn them all into “Rolling Stones” — “on their own, with no direction home, like a complete unknown.” Make them insecure and vulnerable. Then coddle and indulge them. Teach them that the slightest affronts are catastrophes. Teach them to flee from microaggressions to safe spaces. Suspend classes and postpone finals following Trump’s election. Create a generation of victimized snowflakes who can turn only to a nurturing political elite for protection. It’s working. Joe Biden garnered 65% of Gen Z votes. Illegal immigrants. They are all asylum-seeking victims of political prosecution and/or human rights violations in their native lands. No. They are all potential Democratic voters, at least this generation. Criminals. Victims of the social system. Incarceration only leads to recidivism — and inmates can’t vote. Prosecutorial leniency is the better option. Whites. Mainstream whites are not victims. However, woke preaching teaches them that their success is unearned and inequitable, a product of white privilege and unconscious bias. This results in a cadre of guilt-ridden, virtue-signaling whites — today’s liberals — who repent by supporting the woke progressive agenda. Marginalized white residents of rural areas such as Appalachia also do not qualify for victimhood. Possessed of white privilege, it is only through their own failings that they are underachievers. They have to be written off as irredeemable MAGA voters. In 21st-century America, victimhood is largely a state of mind. If Prince Harry and Meghan can be victims, anyone can! All the party need do to lock in its base is keep the glass half empty for those inclined to be dissatisfied or dissident on the one hand, while offering them “hope and change” with the other. That leaves it free to pursue any inane policy it chooses. Zero CO2 emissions by 2050, anyone?)

BIZ PAC REVIEW
— ‘A little tear’: MacCallum predicts how Statue of Liberty would react to migrant ‘mayhem’ in NYC – Chris Donaldson (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs promote illegal immigration and paint illegals as being GOD-LIKE.)
https://www.bizpacreview.com/2023/01/14/a-little-tear-maccallum-predicts-how-statue-of-liberty-would-react-to-migrant-mayhem-in-nyc-1324765/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News host Martha MacCallum reacted to a whistleblower account of illegal immigrants who are housed in a swanky New York City hotel being picky about their free gourmet food and spending their time drinking, getting high, having sex and engaging in domestic violence by suggesting that such behavior would bring a tear to the Statue of Liberty’s eye. . .And I’m thinking there’s a little tear coming down the Statue of Liberty’s head when she hears that the food is not exactly what they would like and there is mayhem going on in these hotels, where people are also, according to this whistleblower, having sex in the hallways, getting into fights, domestic abuse is taking place,” she said. . .On Wednesday’s edition of “The Ingraham Angle,” Rodriguez shared a video of trash bags of uneaten, fresh “good food” that is rotting because the picky “migrants don’t want to eat them.” “They said they don’t like it,” he said of the discarded dinners. “This is all food that is going to waste. This is insane.” “The chaos that we see at the Row today is [caused] by migrants being drunk, drinking all day, smoking marijuana [and] consuming drugs,” Rodriguez added, noting that the hotel is struggling with an explosion of “domestic violence” among the illegals with young people “having sex in the stairs,” and fighting with hotel security personnel. “The form in which they keep their rooms is horrendous. They don’t clean it, they don’t fold their clothes. They’re hoarding clothes, they’re hoarding whatever they can hoard,” he said, explaining that the employees have lost control over the hotel and the migrants act like they own the place. “There’s no accountability.” “The ones that have all the power are the migrants. The hotel workers lost their power in the hotel,” Rodriguez said.)

They did NOT force me to retire because I fail/refused to carry out their preference-giving orders.

MODERN PATRIOTS
— Jonathan Turley Takes Biden Apart Over Classified Documents and Corvette Standard (COMMENT: I have owned my 1972 Corvette since 1971. I should write a book about my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who demonized, denigrated, and condemned Corvettes and Corvette owners the most.)
https://modernpatriots.com/jonathan-turley-takes-biden-apart-over-classified-documents-and-corvette-standard
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Biden responded to this with a horrible response, claiming that the classified documents were kept next to his Corvette. “My Corvette is in a locked garage okay?” It’s not like they’re out on the streets. Jonathan Turley, a George Washington Law School professor, was moved by this. Biden was ridiculed for his absurd response. He said, “The corvette standards are not in classified protocols ” and observed, “The White House counsel could now cite the corvette’s long-standing slogan: Like a car but better.” . . . It is amazing that Joe Biden would act like being right next to his Corvette makes him cool. He took who knows how many classified papers and had them scattered all over the place, including in insecure locations. How could this man ever comment on President Donald Trump, who was granted the right to presidential records and kept them in a vault in his home? This was crazy! Here’s Joe Biden pulling his Corvette from the garage where it was kept in a 2020 campaign video. As you can see, he has boxes on the right and storage space to his left. This is where classified documents were stored. It is a heap of junk, and there’s no place you would want classified documents open to the streets. Do they sit next to an old broken lamp? This gives Joe great assurance about the “Corvette Standard.”)

I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 when I was 27 years old. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981.

I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/scotthogenson/2023/01/14/the-death-of-merit-n2618106
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America has always been a land of opportunity. That’s because our nation was founded as a meritocracy, the wellspring of excellence. This concept is central to American exceptionalism. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written in a time when almost the entire world was governed by systems of monarchy, absolutism or outright dictatorships that rarely, if ever, recognized individual merit. In this regard, America’s founding was indeed exceptional. Leftists detest America’s meritocracy. The reason is simple: recognizing merit means there will be winners and losers, a fact that motivates all of us to try harder with a belief in and reliance upon oneself. Those who exhibit greater merit – through hard work, resourcefulness, perseverance, innate aptitude and so forth – usually enjoy more success. Meritocracy motivates us to individualism and excellence, and is hardwired into the DNA of the human race. The polar opposite of meritocracy is equality of outcome, which requires the entire society, save for political and cultural elites, to exist at the lowest common denominator. It is the foundation of socialist and communist dictatorships, enforced through violence, because totalitarians know that living life at the lowest common denominator is contrary to human nature and natural law. It is no secret that merit is not now, nor has it ever been, universally recognized. The first lesson my father taught me as a very young child was “life isn’t fair,” and time has proved him correct. But the periodic unfairness of life doesn’t mean meritocracies are bad. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, meritocracies are the worst form of society except for all the others that have been tried.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “What employers can do about resume padding or omission. The case of George Santos’ resume brings reminders for employers.” What about including on resumes actions taken to oppose political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination? I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged my Democrat GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I ever-increasingly complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination while I worked for GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and the Post Office 1966-1969. What about including on resumes adverse actions? My Democrat GAO superiors a) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) never promoted me beyond GS-13, c) delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, e) forced the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had promoted me in 1986, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, f) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and g) 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, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors a) never promoted me beyond GS-12, b) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, c) forced the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me in 1974, 1973, and 1972, and d) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974. My Democrat Firestone Stores boss rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile in 1971.

— COMMENT: A hate-filled White-hating White-hater asks “Critical Race Theory?” and says “No, Critical Race Fact” and says “Critical Race Theory researchers have gathered enough evidence by now that the dynamics they explore are a hard reality.” In my defense, while all my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s, they always lived in northeast Illinois. None of them lived in slave states. None of them were employers. The men worked in brick factory, were farmers, operated a hardware store, and worked in the office of a chemical plant. The women were homemakers. None of them owned slaves. None of them directly benefitted from slavery. None of them fought for the Confederate Army. On my father’s side, they lived in Crete which was a stop on the underground railroad. A relative of one of my ancestors fought for the Union Army. I have his Civil War sword.)

Ever-increasingly, Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois talk and/or act like Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, RINO, and other anti-conservative and conservative-hating political consultants advise them a) to dump the individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform and b) to dump voters who support the aforesaid planks.)

https://abc7chicago.com/jim-durkin-illinois-house-republican-resigning/12678017/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Freedom Caucus is issuing the following statement that said: “Leader Jim Durkin is offering all kinds of excuses as he leaves the General Assembly, but the truth is under his leadership our caucus is at its lowest point in membership in a very long time. Leader Durkin squandered money in the 2022 Primary to secure legislative candidates in open seats who were loyal to him and who were not necessarily the best fit for the districts in which they ran, and this proved to be a disastrous decision. We are in this mess not because of our principles but because of our leadership’ lack of commitment to our principles. Jim Durkin has abandoned Republican principles of lower taxes, reduced spending and standing up for our Constitutional rights. Raising taxes to spend more money we don’t have and attacking the Constitutional rights of honest citizens is not a winning message. We need to be united as a party against tax increases and we need to be the party of fiscal responsibility. Jim Durkin’s strategy of offering voters a ‘Democrat Lite’ agenda has been a colossal failure. Our party needs bold leadership if we ever hope to get out of the super minority. Jim Durkin has made it clear he is not willing to provide that bold leadership and is leaving the General Assembly. We wish him good luck on his future endeavors.”)

— Congresswoman Mary Miller Statement on Conservative Policy Victories in Speakership Negotiations
https://mchenrycountyblog.com/2023/01/08/take-on-u-s-house-speakership-fight/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-IL) released the following statement on the historic conservative victory to ensure the House of Representatives stops reckless spending and holds the Biden Administration accountable to the American people: “I promised my constituents that I would fight to change the status quo in the DC swamp, and thanks to 20 members who insisted on change, we can now celebrate a historic victory for the conservative movement despite intense pressure for us to give up and accept business as usual in Washington. After intense negotiations and hard work by House Freedom Caucus members and House Republican leadership, we changed the rules to ensure that a Republican-controlled House cannot betray conservatives the way that Senate Republicans did when they passed Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion omnibus. With 40-year high inflation and $31 trillion in debt, we must save our country for our children and grandchildren. Our conservative policy package includes: The power to block an omnibus spending bill from the Senate; The power to eliminate waste by making direct budget cuts to the federal bureaucracy and spending caps to cut spending; A balanced federal budget over the next 10 years A “Church-style” Committee to Investigate the Weaponization of the Federal Government, including the Biden Department of Justice; A Southern Border Security Plan; The end of COVID mandates and funding for them; Requiring 72 hours to read a bill before the vote; The power for one member to call a vote for a new Speaker. I want to thank President Donald Trump, Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, and Speaker Kevin McCarthy for their work making this victory for the conservative movement and the American people possible. I look forward to working with the House Republican Conference to stop Joe Biden’s destructive, radical, leftist agenda!)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— House GOP Leader Jim Durkin Resigning, Says Trump Republicans, 2nd Amendment and Pro-Life Issues “Dragged” GOP Down in Midterm Election (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Durkin in glorified and praised by hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters. I should write a book about how since 2000 the leaders of the following have treated conservatives, that is, how they have mistreated conservatives, that is, how they have dumped conservatives: Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many planks in the Republican Party platform.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In media interviews after announcing his resignation as House GOP leader, State Rep. Jim 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,” said Durkin. But pointing fingers and blaming others is exactly why Illinois House Republicans are in the super minority – and Durkin has no one else to blame but himself. And blaming the former President does nothing but distract from his own leadership failures. In announcing his resignation on Sunday, Durkin once again began pointing fingers, 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.” But Durkin didn’t just stop there. “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.” To suggest that Second Amendment and pro-life issues are “dragging” the Republican party down is an insult – they are issues that make us Republicans in the first place. In the last week, 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. Just a few days ago, Durkin was the only Republican to join the Democrats, voting in favor of the assault weapons ban. The legislation “immediately prohibits the manufacturing, possession, delivery, sales, and purchase of assault weapons” with a few exceptions – if you are a police officer or you are in the military. The Illinois Freedom Caucus sent a late night email urging conservatives to call Democrats and urge them to vote “No,” arguing that the Democrats admitted in committee that they did not consult with gun groups while drafting the legislation – including the Illinois State Rifle Association, who plans on filing a lawsuit when the bill becomes law. Durkin remains a close ally and best friend of IL GOP chairman Don Tracy. During the primary, Durkin was a supporter of Richard Irvin’s Republican campaign for governor, despite Irvin pulling Democratic Primary ballots in 2014, 2016 and 2020.)

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/outgoing-illinois-house-gop-leader-jim-durkin-to-resign-from-legislature/3039792/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Falling short of that goal, Durkin was candid about his hope that the Illinois GOP and its base will see the losses up and down the ballot as an opportunity for a reckoning. “The party needs to hit the reset button and realize what happened again on Tuesday, that we cannot allow the far right fringe to control the party,” Durkin said Nov. 10. “If they continue, we will suffer losses at the same level we did this cycle, last cycle.” Durkin says those losses can be traced in large part to one person: former President Donald Trump.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: He said at the time that while he accepted responsibility for his own mistakes, former President Donald Trump and the Illinois Republican Party’s MAGA wing bear a lot of blame for the party’s troubles. “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,” Durkin said. “Whoever succeeds me, we need to do more to not take these strident positions on issues related to firearms, to issues of reproductive health, issues relating to the gay and lesbian community. There are many people who feel very strong about those issues who would vote for Republicans.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH PICTURE OF DURKIN: COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Durkin is glorified and praised by hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters. I should write a book about how the leaders of the following since 2000 have treated conservatives, that is, how they have mistreated conservatives, that is, how they have dumped conservatives: Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-jim-durkin-resigning-house-seat-20230108-f6f6lkonprdsnmdlzmz3vhc4im-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: His psychiatric skills, he said, are no longer able to respond to an increasingly rightward Republican Party mindset, fostered by former President Donald Trump and his followers, that threatens to relegate the party to permanent minority status in the state. . .“The politics have changed. The party over the last at least six years has shifted,” he said. “The only way you can win in Illinois is that you’re going to have to just find the candidates that reflect the district. And we should not hold anyone to the 100% (party) purity test that some people in this party expect throughout the state.” . . . Durkin points the blame for the disastrous election results — particularly in the suburbs that were once a cornerstone of Illinois Republicanism — at a statewide GOP ticket led by gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey, a state senator who leaned heavily on his evangelical Christianity in his campaign and who was endorsed by Trump. . . “We had some great (GOP House) candidates in the suburbs and collar counties and they were all painted (by Democrats) with the same brush, as being Trump sympathizers from a party of intolerance and extremists,” he said. “The Trump factor and Jan. 6 is something that’s not going away anytime soon. And that obviously was in many people’s minds when they talked about their fear for democracy.” Durkin said he thinks Republicans in Illinois will not be successful until the party distances itself from Trump and acknowledges both his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and his 2020 election defeat to Democratic President Joe Biden. . .“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,” he said. “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 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,” he said. . .A group of far-right Republican lawmakers known unofficially as the “Eastern Bloc,” of which Bailey was a member, chafed under policies expanding abortion and gay rights and also proposed legislation to make Chicago a separate state. “I can’t run a candidate in the western suburbs who’s going to win who is mirroring what someone says campaigning on in the Deep South,” Durkin said. “I just don’t think we should be promoting the 51st state in the collars and the suburbs when it certainly plays well downstate.” Durkin became friends with the late U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, even serving as his Illinois director in the 2008 presidential campaign against home-state favorite Barack Obama. Durkin said McCain “would have figured a way to avoid” the Republican “mess” that led to the U.S. House taking 15 ballots before electing Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California speaker, and also “would have ensured that on Jan. 6, maybe something different, maybe something could have been averted.” “The John McCain I know would have gone outside of the Capitol and kicked the asses of the insurrectionists and Trump’s as well,” Durkin said. “He’s the statesman that this country needs.” . . .He and Durbin also developed a friendship. . .One of his last legislative votes was as the lone Republican to vote with Democrats to approve a ban on military-style firearms and large-capacity magazines. Durkin, who has long backed various gun control initiatives, said his vote not only represented his district’s beliefs but was a reflection of his years as a prosecutor.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— COIMMENT: Illinois Democrats say “Departing state House GOP leader Jim Durkin giving up his seat in Illinois General Assembly.” Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many of the planks in the Republican Party platform.
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2023/1/8/23545889/departing-state-house-gop-leader-jim-durkin-giving-up-his-seat-in-illinois-general-assembly
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Western Springs Republican in November said he was relinquishing his role as House minority leader, a largely thankless job as his party moved further to the right and the state moved further to the left. Despite his high-profile departure, Durkin in November told the Sun-Times that he wants moderate Republicans to soldier on. “The state wants people who are more to the middle. That’s why we have a bigger independent voting bloc, because of the extremes in both parties. Extremes on both sides dictate the primaries, and that’s what happens in the general elections,” Durkin said.)
— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats a) glorify and praise RINOs and b) demonize, denigrate, and condemn conservatives, that is, platform Republicans, that is, Republicans as being hardliners.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Miller disclosed the outlines of the sweeping agreement. Besides keeping the speaker on a short leash, her group will: Have the power to block the sort of omnibus bill the House and Senate — with GOP support — approved in one of the last major acts of the 117th Congress. Have the power to block an increase in the debt ceiling, with an impasse possibly leading to a government shutdown. Create, as Miller put it, a committee to “investigate the weaponization of the federal government, including the Biden Department of Justice.” Miller, a farmer, who represents the heavily Republican 15th Congressional District in southern Illinois, was raised in suburban Naperville and in November won her second term. She has served on the House Agriculture Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee, but she is best known for her activism fighting against abortion, gun control measures and other hot-button social issues.)

He was the lone Republican to vote for the bill, which the Senate is taking up before the new General Assembly convenes. . .In an interview with NBC 5 Chicago, he also blamed former President Donald Trump for Republican losses. “The Trump factor went too far, and I believe that that was what interrupted part of this red wave,” Durkin said.)

TOWNHALL
— Why RINOs Are RINOs – Rachel Alexander
https://townhall.com/columnists/rachelalexander/2023/01/09/why-rinos-are-rinos-n2618036
(FROM THE ARTICLE: RINOs always declare that they side with Democrats out of “principles,” and attack conservatives for the exact same reasons the left does; the usual vague claims that they’re offensive, too extreme and unelectable. But their assertion of being principled is a smokescreen. Ever notice how RINOs are always well off, well networked and have been around a long time as GOP establishment? It comes down to follow the money and who they know, but they’re too dishonest to admit it.)

WASHINGTON POST
— COMMENT: Democrats say Pritzker says “Hike cabinet pay to ‘bring, retain great people.” I was a federal employee for almost 30 years and I have been a federal retiree for more than 25 years. According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, a) federal employees are grossly overpaid and b) federal pensions are far too generous. They hint/imply/argue/shout that bad pay and benefits are major reasons why they have never applied for a federal job, but the real reasons include: a) they cannot pass required employment examinations, b) they lack required education, professional certifications, and/or licenses, c) they cannot pass required background investigations, and/or d) they lack required work experience. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who would never be offered a federal job if they applied because of the aforesaid. I got and kept three federal jobs (Post Office Carrier/Clerk for almost 3 years, IRS Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, and GAO Analyst for almost 18 years) a) because I passed required employment examinations (Post Office employment examination, Federal Service Entrance Examination, CPA examination, and Certified Internal Auditor examination), b) because I had required education (high school diploma, bachelor’s degree in management and master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance), professional certifications (CPA, Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant), and a CPA license, c) because I passed required background investigations, and d) because I had required work experience (almost 9 years working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104.583/year).

You know. The kind of cars that Henry Ford started rolling off the assembly line 100 years ago at the Ford Motor Company in Detroit. Henceforth, virtually all American-made cars will be electric vehicles. Perhaps the corporate brass in Michigan’s auto executive offices thinks this makes them good global citizens. They are all in on the fight against global warming. They may be making a political bet that the federal government and more states are going to go the way of California and eventually mandate that every car produced must be battery-operated. But there is also a good deal of virtue-signaling going on here by the folks at Ford and General Motors. It’s a free country, and if they want to start rolling millions of EVs off the assembly lines, so be it. But it’s one thing to make cars that appeal to members of the Sierra Club and quite another to produce automobiles that the typical buyer wants. And guess what? So far, most people have turned a decisive thumbs-down on EVs. (Incidentally, I’m personally agnostic on electric vehicles. I’ve driven Teslas, and they are wonderful smooth-driving vehicles. But they have problems too, such as getting stranded with no juice in the middle of nowhere.) So far, only about 6% of new cars sold are electric vehicles. And polls show that only about half of Americans prefer an EV over a traditional car. Much larger majorities oppose the government telling us what kind of car we can buy. Incidentally, the one state that far outpaces the rest of the country in EV sales (with about 1 in 3 new car sales being battery-operated) is California. But, hey, Detroit: Sorry, California isn’t the country. All of this is to say that there’s a decent chance the American auto companies’ shift to all EVs is going to fail. This could even be the most epic failure for American car companies since Ford introduced the Edsel. (For youngsters, that was the 1950s ugly car that nobody wanted to buy.) Meanwhile, and this is the especially sad part of the story, at least one company realizes the tomfoolery of making only electric cars. And that company is the Japanese automaker Toyota. Akio Toyoda, the president and grandson of the founder of the giant Japanese car company, is going to buck the trend. “People involved in the auto industry are largely a silent majority,” Toyoda recently told news reporters. “That silent majority is wondering whether EVs are really OK to have as a single option. But they think it’s the trend, so they can’t speak out loudly.”)

— Majority of McCarthy’s defectors received thousands in campaign funds during midterms – Cami Mondeaux
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/majority-of-mccarthy-defectors-received-thousands-campaign-funds
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The majority of the Republicans opposing Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) bid for House speaker received a total of $120,000 in campaign funds from the party leader’s political action committee during the midterm cycle, according to finance filings. At least 20 Republicans have voted against McCarthy’s nomination to become the next speaker, pitting the former minority leader against several members of his party. Of the 20 Republicans, 14 of them received a total of $120,000 from the Majority Committee alone, according to the Federal Election Committee. When taking into account all political groups affiliated with McCarthy, the group received a total of more than $1 million to boost campaigns.)

— Kevin McCarthy Drama Underscores Impotence of Republican Elite – Josh Hammer
https://www.creators.com/read/josh-hammer/01/23/kevin-mccarthy-drama-underscores-impotence-of-republican-elite
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kevin McCarthy, first elected to Congress in 2006, has been an establishment figure since the day he arrived in Washington, D.C. His political philosophy and guiding principles are to this day largely unknown, to the perhaps-dubious extent they exist at all. True, he is a well-known prolific fundraiser who knows how to work a room full of donors — but what exactly has that accomplished for either the GOP or the conservative cause, of late? McCarthy is best understood as an empty suit and a quintessential Swamp creature — someone who lives and breathes the D.C. game, who is cozy with K Street and whose main lodestar is cutting deals and expending political capital in order to boost his own political fortunes.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Religiously, the 118th Congress doesn’t reflect America,” that is, Democrats crow about their success in getting rid of Christian voters, and especially Protestant voters. Ever-increasingly, Democrats in Congress pass laws that are anti-Christian and especially anti-Protestant.
https://federalnewsnetwork.com/government-news/2023/01/survey-religiously-congress-doesnt-reflect-america/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Congress “remains largely untouched by two trends that have long marked religious life in the United States: a decades-long decline in the share of Americans who identify as Christian, and a corresponding increase in the percentage who say they have no religious affiliation,” said the Pew report, released Tuesday. It was based on a CQ Roll Call survey of members of Congress. Nearly 88% of members of Congress identify as Christian, compared with only 63% of U.S. adults overall. That includes 57% of congresspersons who identify as Protestant and 28% as Catholic, both higher than national rates. Also, 6% of members of Congress identify as Jewish, compared with 2% of the overall population. While 29% Americans claim no religious affiliation, they’d have to squint to see themselves reflected in Congress. The only overtly non-religious members are U.S. Rep.

— Dan Crenshaw pitches solution to border crisis to unite Democrats and Republicans – Anna Giaritelli
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/house/dan-crenshaw-solution-border-crisis-unite-democrats-republicans
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Let’s solve the border crisis in one tweet. Instead of spending billions more on ‘processing,’ spend more money on jet fuel. Pack planes full of migrants who cross illegally and deport them immediately. The crisis will end within months,” Crenshaw wrote in a string of tweets Monday evening. “In summary: fund airplanes, holding facilities, immigration judges, ICE prosecutors, walls, and technology capable of detecting fentanyl. And stop the abuses of our asylum system. That’s what border security would look like,” he wrote. The approach breaks with House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) proposal before the election, which ran along the lines of re-implementing a slew of Trump administration policies that Biden rescinded. Although Republicans and some Democrats have called on the Biden administration not to cease using a pandemic policy that allows illegal immigrants to be immediately sent back to Mexico, Crenshaw said approaches akin to Title 42 are flawed. “Why not just turn them away when they cross? Many have asked why Texas doesn’t do that. Because we have a river. Once they’re in the river, they’re within our jurisdiction. We can’t physically secure the Rio Grande. Even if we did turn them back, they’d cross somewhere else,” Crenshaw said. “So you need jet fuel. You need to be sending people far away from the border, thus making it unimaginable for someone to make the journey all the way north if they’re just gonna be sent back home.”)

If GAO had been unionized since 1980, the liberal Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office might not have been able a) to force me to take a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, b) to give me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) to keep me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, d) to force the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer from IRS to GAO, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, e) to delay my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, f) to stop me from being promoted beyond GS-13, g) to always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) to force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

WESTERN JOURNAL
— One Look at the Record Reveals the True Epicenter of Anti-Semitism – Richard Moss (COMMENT: I should write a book about the success that Democrat Chicago politicians had in forcing my many Jewish GAO, IRS, and Post Office superiors to take many adverse actions against me. They stressed that I was conservative, Republican, Protestant, 100% German American, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978. In my defense, I stressed that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F.)
https://www.westernjournal.com/op-ed-one-look-record-reveals-true-epicenter-anti-semitism/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A cursory exam of the record will demonstrate that Trump is the most pro-Israel, pro-Jewish president we have ever had. . .The Palestinian Liberation Organization is a terrorist entity stained with Jewish and American blood. It pays stipends to families of terrorists responsible for killing Jews and is the most successful Jew-killing operation since World War II. Trump closed its diplomatic mission in Washington, D.C. Obama upgraded it. Obama also increased U.S. funding to the PLO while Trump cut it. Biden has reinstated it. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency is an anti-Semitic body that supports Hamas and indoctrinates young Palestinians to hate Jews. Trump stopped funding the organization while Obama expanded it. Trump pulled the U.S. out of the anti-Semitic UN Human Rights Council. Obama joined it, as did Biden. Obama spent 20 years in the Trinity Church of Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semite and bigot. Wright and Obama were associates of black nationalist, racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, who recently referred to Jews as “termites.” Farrakhan has spoken of his admiration of Hitler for killing millions of Jews (as has Hamas).)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Time Is Running Out for Afghan Refugees.” When did time run out for you? Time ran out for me in 1973 when I was a 25-year-old White male non-veteran Republican IRS employee who had not made GS-13, currently $109,732/year. While I did make GS-12, currently $92,279/year, in 1974, my IRS career was over. My IRS superiors were under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to use Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to hire, to retain, and promote Democrats who were minority, female, and/or younger. Because of that, 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. Because of that, I successfully applied for a transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Why Millennials Are Following Boomers to the South.” The Democrat Party platform promotes poverty and crime. Those who move to Republican areas to escape Democrats should consider the success that Democrats have had in invading, infesting, taking over, and destroying the once-Republican DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. Ever-increasingly, poverty and crime increases in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. The closer that Democrat areas are to Republican areas and/or the more that those areas are connected with public transportation and/or major roads, the faster that Democrats will invade, infest, take over, and destroy those areas.

Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs use AA and DEI to take opportunities away from those who are conservative, White, male, older, Protestant, Italian America, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time and give those opportunities to those who are liberal/moderate, minority, female, younger, non-Protestant, non-Italian America, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/faith-freedom-self-reliance/why-socialism-sickens-and-capitalism-cures

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A 2022 Pew Research Center survey found that an alarming number of people still believe that socialism “gives all people an equal opportunity to be successful,” with 52% agreeing this statement is at least somewhat true for socialism. Fortunately, 64% agreed that statement is at least somewhat true for capitalism. Still, it is evident that most people who favor socialism don’t understand it or its negative consequences. Apologists for socialism need to understand what the late economist Friedrich Hayek said: “There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal. While the first is the condition of a free society, the second means, as de Tocqueville describes it, a new form of servitude.”)

Barry Moore: We Can Zero out Salary of Woke Defense Officials under New Proposed Rules Package – IAN HANCHETT (COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors a) zeroed out my $142,650/year salary in today’s dollars and b) forced the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) to pay me $63,133/year in today’s dollars for the rest of my life. So far, in today’s dollars, CSRS has paid me $1,600,000. Of course, my critics/opponent, their operatives, and their dupes a) have never complained about what my Democrat GAO superiors did and b) blame me for what my Democrat GAO superiors did.)

— Civil-Rights-Discrimination Complaints More Than Doubled for the Education Department in 2022 – ARI BLAFF

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/civil-rights-discrimination-complaints-more-than-doubled-for-the-education-department-in-2022/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the 1619 Project’s growing popularity, and the seeping of identity politics into elementary education, conservatives have begun to turn to the Education Department’s complaint mechanism as a means of challenging the cultural zeitgeist. Parents Defending Education filed numerous suits citing Title VI violations on the basis of “race, color, or national origin” for the 2022 fiscal year. The introduction of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, such as school trips or programming advertised exclusively to members of minority groups, has been a particularly polarizing issue. “The shift toward race-conscious policies means that schools are consciously injecting race into things, when we believe they should not be,” Nicole Neily, the founder of Parents Defending Education told the Times. “I worry that in this continued obsession of trying to inject identity into everything, it almost undermines where there is real injustice.”)

— Trump Blames Extreme Pro-Lifers for Republican Midterm Defeats – RAMESH PONNURU (COMMENT: According to extreme pro-lifers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton, I have not done enough to promote right to life. They stress a) that I am not a member of a church, b) that I do not attend church services, c) that I do not give money to a church, and d) that I do not give money to them. In my defense, virtually every GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter since 2000 has contained links to articles a) that promote right to life and b) that discourage abortion. Further, while I served as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, virtually every speaker that I recruited was pro-life. Extreme pro-lifers not only want me to blacklist those who do not promote right to life, they destroy me for not blacklisting those who do not promote right to life.)
