— If you are the following, Democrats ever-increasingly foist the sins of your forefathers on you. If you are the following, and your ancestors have been in America for a long time, Democrats ever-increasingly stress how long your ancestors have been in America: heterosexual, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, married, gun owner, Protestant, and/or German American. My ancestors have been in America since 1844. In my defense, I stress that they always lived in northeast Illinois, that they never were in a position to discriminate against anyone, and that they never did discriminate against anyone. In 1921, on my father’s side, they operated Crete’s only hardware store. On my mother’s side, they operated a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. In the Civil War, Democrats fought to preserve slavery, Republicans fought to end slavery. The more that Democrats promote Juneteenth, the more evidence that Democrats are succeeding in painting today’s Republicans as being yesterday’s Confederates.

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH PICTURE IN NAPERVILLE SUN: Southern Poverty Law Center flags Naperville-based Awake Illinois as a hate group. – TESS KENNY (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted the most that TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) were hate groups. I would focus on those who ended my TAPROOT chairmanship in 2012 and who ended my ICRC Steering Committee membership in 2007.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/06/18/naperville-awake-illinois-southern-poverty-law-center-hate-map/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville-based Awake Illinois was called out as one of 1,430 hate and anti-government extremist groups operating in the U.S. in 2023 by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Awake group, which espouses anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric and advocates against sex education in schools, was flagged by the center in its Year in Hate & Extremism report. The annually published report, the center says, is a “comprehensive analysis of the groups and organizational infrastructure upholding white supremacy in the United States.” It includes a “hate map,” tracking groups that land on the center’s hate and extremism radar by state as well as several observed trends in recent hard-right activity. In its latest analysis, the center found that 39 different hate and anti-government extremist groups were active in Illinois last year. Those, according to the center, included Awake Illinois. Other Illinois groups cited by the center include Partners for Ethical Care, an anti-gender affirming group in Chicago, and several local chapters of the conservative parental rights group Moms for Liberty. Asked for comment, Awake Illinois founder and President Shannon Adcock deferred to a video statement on the group’s X (formerly Twitter) account. “Awake Illinois is designated a ‘hate group’ by the totally not respected and fully absurd joke of an organization known as the Southern Poverty Law Center,” the group posted to X earlier this month. “Awake Illinois continues to be a thorn in the side of government bootlickers, child exploiters, anti-Americans, Marxists and people with no sense of humor whatsoever.” Awake’s statement goes on to thank the center “for this amazing 3rd anniversary gift.” The group was founded in May 2021. The statement ends with “Can’t cancel us!”  From her own X account, Adcock wrote, “I’d like to thank the SPLC for this award,” followed by a laughing crying emoji, in a June 4 post. The Southern Poverty Law Center, based in Mongomery, Alabama, has been publishing an annual census of hate groups operating within the United States every year since 1990. The tally encompasses several different types of groups under the larger umbrella of hate and extremism. Ideologies the center’s hate map covers include anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ+, conspiracy propagandists, Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazi and racist skinhead, among others. Awake was deemed a “general anti-government” group, which, per the law center’s website, are groups that are “part of the anti-democratic hard-right movement.” The center dubbed more than 630 of the total 1,430 groups on its 2023 hate map as generally anti-governmental. To devise the annual analysis, the center says it reviews extremist group publications and materials as well as reports by the public, law enforcement, field sources and news media. The center identified 205 more hate and anti-government extremist groups last year than it did the year before. Between 2021 and 2023, the list has almost doubled in size. However, the number often fluctuates. In 2016, the center named 917 groups on its hate map. By 2018, that total was up to 1,020. The next year, it was down to 940. The same pattern is reflected in Illinois. In 2018, the center placed 31 Illinois groups on its hate map. Two years later, only 19 across the state were identified. Beyond monitoring hate and extremism, the center — founded in 1971 — files lawsuits over justice issues and offers educational programs to counter prejudice. It is frequently criticized by conservative groups as biased and has faced lawsuits of its own in the past over its designation of various organizations as hate groups. In 2019, for instance, the founder of the far-right Proud Boys extremist group sued the center for labeling the organization as a hate group. Awake Illinois describes its efforts as “waking up Illinoisans each day while empowering citizens to elevate their voices on topics of education, equality, legislation, civic involvement and social welfare causes.” The group often takes positions on pending legislation and encourages voters to lobby their legislators. It also runs a livestream series called “Protect the Kids.” According to Awake, the series “invites top national advocates and experts to discuss how they are empowering parents, policy makers and communities on the urgent need to protect children from the harms known as ‘gender affirmation,’ ‘gender ideology’ and transgender trends.” Most recently, Awake ran a campaign to drum up opposition to a “Drag Story Hour” hosted by the Skokie Public Library on June 8. On its website, the library publicized the event as Chicago drag queen Coco Sho-Nell leading a “festive and fabulous hour of stories and fun during Pride Month.” It was open to children ages 3 to 6, accompanied by an adult. The event went on without a hitch.)

JOURNAL COURIER
— First in a series of hearings on Illinois reparations set next month. – Dave Dawson  (COMMENT: How much reparations have you paid? Affirmative Action (AA) and DEI are reparations. To curry favor with Blacks, my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents have used AA and DEI to make me pay a tremendous amount of reparations. They have always strongly hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I took jobs that should have been given to Blacks. 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. In 1997, they forced me to retire early and gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate. Since 2000, they have blamed me for votes that Black Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct did not get. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Mark “Manifesto” Shaw Removed as IL GOP Vice Chair as Grassroots Dominate Local, State Party Politics
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/mark-manifesto-shaw-removed-as-il-gop-vice-chair-as-grassroots-dominate-local-state-party-politics.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Late on Monday, the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee – the governing board of the IL GOP, voted overwhelmingly to remove fellow SSC committeeman Mark Shaw as vice chair of the state party – in a stunning move – as the grassroots continue to show their dominance over statewide GOP politics. On Saturday, Shaw penned an angry, 10-page manifesto where he appeared unhinged as the IL GOP leader attempted to defend himself after it was revealed that he broke party rules and purposefully misrepresented himself as a delegate during the state convention last month, and then threatened to beat up a leader of the party. As it has been previously reported, Shaw made a fool of himself during the GOP State Convention in Collinsville when he refused to withdraw from his national committeeman race after losing in a series of votes – intent on not backing down despite an overwhelming majority of delegates rejecting his candidacy. And when Aaron Del Mar, a fellow SSC member suggested he withdraw from the race and back his opponent, Shaw threatened Del Mar – a former MMA fighter, and said that he was going to take him outside and beat him up. But that wasn’t all. Just shortly after the convention, it was discovered that Shaw purposefully misrepresented himself as a delegate to the convention as photos emerged of the IL GOP vice chairman wearing an official delegate badge when he was in fact, not a delegate – a direct violation of state party rules. Several county GOP leaders called for Shaw to resign or be removed from his leadership positions – and late on Monday – that’s exactly what happened during a Zoom meeting where the SSC met to discuss Shaw’s future within the party. Shaw remains a SSC member and a member of the IL GOP finance committee – but those positions are in jeopardy as well following Monday night’s vote. Over the last few months, the grassroots have dominated local and state party politics – and the influential voter base shows no signs of backing down – a point that threatens the party establishment.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE WITH PICTURE: Illinois GOP leadership teetering with RNC a month away – RICK PEARSON and JEREMY GORNER
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/06/18/illinois-gop-leadership-teetering-with-rnc-a-month-away/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The decision by top Illinois Republican officials to dethrone the party’s vice chair could portend even bigger changes for the moribund organization, including renewed efforts to replace its Illinois GOP Chairman Don Tracy. Mark Shaw, the former chairman of the GOP in Lake County, lost the title of state party vice chair and also was removed from the party’s fundraising committee during a special  meeting Monday of the Illinois Republican State Central Committee following controversies last month at the state GOP convention in Collinsville. State GOP sources familiar with the inner workings of the state party said the events leading up to Shaw’s sanctioning also underscored long-standing concerns about the leadership of Tracy, a Springfield attorney who has headed up the party since February 2021. Tracy took no public position on whether Shaw should continue as state GOP vice chair and said he was powerless to force him to step down — a stance critics cited as weak. They also noted Tracy questioned whether Shaw was being fairly treated. The party instability comes less than a month before the state’s 64-member delegation heads to Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention’s nomination of former President Donald Trump. The entire delegation is pledged to Trump, including Shaw and Tracy. But conventions are typically designed to display party unity — an element lacking within the Illinois GOP leadership. “His days are numbered. It’s just a matter of how it happens,” one Republican familiar with the intraparty discussions said of Tracy. The source asked that their name not be used to avoid intensifying the feuding. Tracy was unavailable for comment, according to a party spokesman, who instead issued a statement confirming Shaw was no longer serving as state GOP vice chair. At the state GOP convention last month Shaw, of Lake Forest, unsuccessfully sought to be named a committeeman to the Republican National Committee. He overwhelmingly lost three floor votes among delegates after having been recommended each time by a convention committee. Shaw was then urged by another state central committeeman, Aaron Del Mar of Palatine, to withdraw and support the eventual winner, businessman Dean White of St. Charles. After that happened, Shaw, 63, has acknowledged he threatened to “kick his ass,” speaking about Del Mar, even though the 45-year-old has a previous history of being involved in mixed martial arts. Shaw also displayed a floor delegate badge at the convention, enabling him to vote for himself as national committeeman, even though he was not chosen by Lake County GOP Chairman Keith Brin to serve as a delegate. Brin successfully became county GOP chairman in July 2022 amid concerns over growing Democratic victories in Lake County and Shaw withdrawing his bid for another term. Shaw, who has been a paid adviser to Trump’s reelection campaign, also was criticized for distributing drink tickets promoting his national committeeman candidacy for a hospitality room that was paid for to promote Trump. In a post-convention 10-page manifesto of grievances, Shaw said he did nothing wrong. He labeled GOP critics seeking his ouster as party vice chairman as “keyboard warriors,” “political hacks” and “uninformed lemmings” and attacked the “sheer ignorance knowingly perpetrated by my political enemies.” On Monday, of the 14 members of the 17-member state central committee who met, 11 voted to take Shaw’s title away, though he remains a state central committeeman. Shaw did not appear, sending a lawyer in his place. Two others voted “present” and only one member voted to retain Shaw as vice chairman. Efforts to sanction Shaw also include his symbolic censuring by the Lake County GOP and a potential “no confidence” vote by Republican committeemen in the 10th Congressional District that he represents on the state central committee. Condemning Shaw has resulted in a unifying effect among often disparate Republican county chairs in the Chicago area. But it also has reopened the doors to a potential challenge of Tracy who survived a “no confidence” vote in May of last year. As was the case with Shaw, removing a state GOP officer requires a 60% majority of the weighted vote of ballots cast in the March Republican primary. “Don is incredibly weak right now, because he doesn’t have any support. Nobody is standing up and saying, ‘We really want Don.’ But that’s not happening,” said another source active in the inner workings of the party. The source said in the wake of the Shaw discipline, “I don’t think there’s an appetite right now. But I would say within a week or two there probably is.” But, the source said, there are questions of whether to mount a challenge to Tracy before next month’s GOP national convention or wait until August, when Republicans gather for their day at the Illinois State Fair. “There’s a lot of different opinions, but there’s no one standing up and saying that we need to keep this guy,” the source said. The first source said the party provides few resources to elect Republicans and instead money actually flows out to “consultants and staffers.” That source said the GOP needs a leader “who’s actually in it to build a party organization” and doesn’t use the position with a personal agenda of boosting themselves or their allies as has been the case with past state chairs. The source noted Illinois is an economically and geographically diverse state and the party needs to reflect that. “You need a leader who wants the state party to be successful above and beyond the success of any single individual,” the source said. Among names being mentioned by Republicans in a possible challenge to Tracy’s post are Del Mar, a former Cook County GOP chair, and Jason Plummer, a state senator from Edwardsville who also serves on the GOP state central committee.)

LAKE FOREST PATCH
— Illinois Republican Leaders Oust Vice Chair Mark Shaw Over ‘Trans Delegate’ Scandal. Party leaders removed the vice chair after he was accused of voting improperly and challenging a rival to a fight at its convention. – Jonah Meadows
https://patch.com/illinois/lakeforest/illinois-gop-leaders-oust-mark-shaw-over-trans-delegate-scandal
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shaw, who is also the state central committeeman for the 10th Congressional District, had been facing calls for his ouster from several senior party leaders, including the man who succeeded him as chair of the Lake County Republican Party two years ago. Keith Brin said in a letter asking his fellow county chairs to demand Shaw’s resignation that Shaw claimed to believe he was a delegate at the state convention even though he had been explicitly told he was not. And, according to the Lake County chair, an eyewitness spotted Shaw asking for multiple delegate badges to give to others. “I guess I wasn’t aware there was a new category of identity in America. More specifically, in the Republican Party. We now we have people who ‘identify’ as delegates. It doesn’t matter that they weren’t actually delegates. But because they were above following the rules – the rules they most likely helped create – they were allowed to enter the convention as delegates. And we must forgive them their transgressions and ignore the rules because it’s all up to how they identify,” Brin said. “I should tell my Democratic Chair counterpart the Republican Party is now woke! We are election woke! All election identities are welcome and honored. I think we all should go to an electorally split county and claim that we identify as voters there and demand ballots. It works for Mark Shaw and the Republican Party, so why not,” the county chair said in his June 10 letter to county chairs. “This is all garbage. It’s hypocritical and embarrassing. How can we continue to spend resources on election integrity and allow this arrogance within the upper hierarchy of our Party? We are not talking about a first-term committeeman,” he added. “We are talking about the second in charge of the Illinois Republican Party. This was not a mistake; this was a calculated action.” Brin’s letter to county chairs came four days after state party chair Don Tracy told Shaw that he had “been directed to ask him to resign” in response to the desire of a “strong majority” of the state central committee to get rid of him. The delegate badge controversy was compounded by the allegation that Shaw challenged another committee member to a fight following his unsuccessful bid to become a committeeman for the Republican National Convention, or RNC. Shaw responded to demands for his ouster Saturday with a 10-page response containing his account of events, describing the allegations of voter fraud and incitement of violence as false. According to Shaw, 35 of Lake County’s 45 delegates did not even show up to the convention in Collinsville and no one had any problem with him voting along with the Lake County delegation. And he denied giving away delegate badges to anyone else. Shaw also denied the accusation that he threatened to beat up Palatine Township Committeeman Aaron Del Mar, who he said had spent the weekend intimidating other delegates to defeat him. “More ominously, Aaron reportedly incited attendees to ‘charge the stage’ at the [Illinois Republican Party] State Convention if his candidate, Dean White, was not declared RNC Committeeman,” Shaw said. “Aaron’s divisive, threatening and intimidating conduct resulted in an exchange of very charged words between us as he attempted to bully his way into a private meeting between White, [Chairman] Don Tracy, [General Counsel] John Fogarty and me,” Shaw continued. “He menacingly invited me to fight him when I told him he was not invited to attend the meeting, and I was going to prevent him from doing so. Reflexively, I responded to his invitation by telling him that I would kick his ass. Obviously, a poor choice of words on my part, given Del Mar’s much younger age, better physical condition, and status as a former mixed-martial-arts athlete.” In addition to his claims regarding Del Mar, Shaw’s response contained a series of criticisms of Brin, Cook County GOP Chairman Sean Morrison and the party’s former attorney general nominee, Tom Devore — who accused Shaw of being a “trans delegate” in a social media post. State Sen. Jason Plummer, of Edwardsville, said the state central committee would be able to take action regarding the allegations of misconduct against Shaw at Monday’s meeting. Plummer, the GOP state committeeperson for the 15th Congressional District, said he had heard some good feedback about the state convention. “At the same time, I am very disappointed about the various troubling things that have been relayed to me,” Plummer said, “and the party must take appropriate steps to definitively address any wrongdoing.” GOP state central committee members voted “overwhelmingly” to remove Shaw as vice chair Monday evening, the Illinois Review reported, though he remains, as of Tuesday, a member of the central committee and finance committee.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: CAGE MATCH: Illinois Republican Party officials are meeting today to address concerns about Mark Shaw, vice chair of the Illinois GOP and a state central committeeman. He’s been accused of improperly voting as a delegate during last month’s state GOP convention and also challenging someone to a fight. The back-and-forth: Lake County Republican Party Chair Keith Brin called on Shaw to resign, and Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison sent a letter urging them to address the concerns. Shaw has pushed back with a letter defending himself, saying, “Brin’s and Morrison’s demands are based on half-truths and outright lies.” Read it here ( https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000190-1e27-de3a-adb6-ff67e1760000 ). “I feel like my bosses are fighting and I’m in the middle of it,” Illinois GOP Chair Don Tracy told Playbook. Tracy said he was directed by members of the State Central Committee to ask Shaw to step down as vice chair. Shaw didn’t return our request for comment on the brouhaha. “We need to lower the room temperature,” Tracy said, adding the goal is “to defeat the Democratic operatives who are ruining this state and to save our passions and our energies to win some elections. ”What led to today’s meeting of the GOP State Central Committee: There’s a question about whether Shaw wrongly signed up as a delegate for the convention. And there’s tension from the vote for RNC committeeman. Shaw wanted the position and won the first three rounds of voting among the state central committee members but lost in the floor vote. Dean White, ultimately won by acclamation. At some point during that drama, Shaw lashed out at Republican State Central Committeeman Aaron Del Mar, who was helping White maneuver the process. Shaw told Del Mar, “I’m going to kick your ass.” In his memo, Shaw acknowledged it was “obviously, a poor choice of words” given Del Mar is “a former mixed-martial-arts athlete.” Del Mar’s response: “I understand emotions were high, but you don’t get to be vice chair [of the party] and say stuff like that,” he told Playbook. Much of the tension is a result of relationships gone sour over past elections. Some Republicans blame Shaw for Lake County turning blue, while he was county chair. And even though Shaw is a Donald Trump delegate and a “senior adviser” to the GOP presidential candidate, some Republicans in the base still view him as being too establishment. “It’s frustrating to have an intra-family fight,” Tracy said. “But I’m a firm believer that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. So, I’m hoping we will come out of this stronger and battle-ready for the fall elections.”)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Vince Kolber, who Votes in IL, WI, Resigns as IL GOP Finance Chairman, Blames Grassroots for his Downfall
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/breaking-vince-kolber-who-votes-in-il-wi-resigns-as-il-gop-finance-chairman-blames-grassroots-for-his-downfall.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Vince Kolber, chairman of the Illinois Republican Party Finance Committee abruptly resigned on Tuesday in an angry letter to IL GOP chairman Don Tracy, just weeks after the influential conservative grassroots base of the Illinois Republican Party scored major victories during the GOP State Convention in Collinsville – and after two years of unflattering stories by this publication. Kolber, who is registered to vote in Illinois and Wisconsin, is still angry about losing his election at the state convention for national committeeman – after being eliminated in the first round to Mark Shaw, who faked a delegate badge and threatened to beat up a fellow state central committee member. During the first day of the convention, the Republican National Committeeman Nominating Committee voted 14-3 to keep Kolber on the ballot despite failing to meet the candidacy requirements as outlined by the IL GOP’s own bylaws. As part of the nomination process, candidates are required to submit before the convention their certified voting record to show that they voted in the last three Illinois Republican primaries. But Kolber, who is registered to vote as a full time resident in both Illinois and Wisconsin – only submitted information for two Illinois primaries – 2022 and 2024. The omission of where he voted in 2020 would have automatically disqualified him from running for national committeeman per the bylaws, but an exception was made and Kolber remained on the ballot – proving that if you are a favored candidate of the party establishment – rules can be broken. In his resignation letter, Kolber blamed the rise of the grassroots for his downfall – or as he also stated, the “newly engaged,” writing, “Right now, our Illinois party is excessively focused on the newly engaged raising high, the banner of the “grassroots.” Kolber also blamed the grassroots – or the “newly engaged” for creating “resistance” with donors, telling Tracy, “We have both experienced wide resistance from those donors in supporting a party organization needlessly divided on the relative importance of the newly engaged.” . . . Kolber also blamed the grassroots for the election of Dean White as national committeeman – a position that he sought, writing, “the Illinois party chose someone who has never given or raised to either the Illinois Party or the National Party. And in my case, they turned down someone who has given and raised substantial funds for both the State and National Republican parties.” The Illinois and Wisconsin resident has always placed an emphasis on money over people – and as a result, the Illinois Republican Party – and partly under his leadership, has slipped further into irrelevance as the Democrats continue to expand their super majority control in both the Illinois House and Senate – and control every statewide office – leaving Republicans voiceless on local and state matters. In July 2023, Kolber was listed on the host committee for a Ron DeSantis for President event in Wisconsin, where he claims to live full-time, while at the same time, serving as an IL GOP senior official. In December of 2022, Kolber infamously offended a room full of grassroots, when he asked the crowd during a state central committee meeting, “I assume all of you have donated to the IL GOP?” And when the room yelled back, “No!” He replied, “No? Then what are you doing here?” The comment drew an immediate reaction from the crowd, still stunned that a GOP leader would say something so offensive to a room full of hardworking, grassroots patriots – many of whom had driven hours, just for their voices to be heard. And judging by the negative reaction from the crowd, Republican state central committee member and ally of Kolber – Jeanne Ives, jumped up from her seat, in defense of Kolber, screaming as if experiencing an out of body experience and yelling in a high pitched voice, “Vince is not your problem! This man gave me $750,000 when I ran against Gov. Bruce Rauner!” Proving yet again, that if you are a major donor – different rules apply. In his closing remarks, Kolber stated that he is resigning “from Chairing or further participating in the Finance Committee” – and leaving the state party altogether. I “wish all involved continuing success.”)

— Why have your critics/opponents take adverse actions against you? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

My critics/opponents have taken adverse actions against me because:
— I promote planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including 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.
— I promote direct election of Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee members.
— They 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 wrong doing, and/or who refuse to give them money.
— I have demographics that they despise/hate including heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, married, draft avoider, gun owner, Protestant, German American, those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, former union member, former federal employees, and federal retiree.
— I have more money, work experience, education, professional certifications than they do and I have a professional license.
— They blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and/or for everyone’s problems.
— I have sued them or I have sued those who they work for.
— They hate Trump and I do not.

What is the next adverse action that you anticipate/expect that your critics/opponents will take against you? For me, I anticipate/expect that they will recruit a Republican voter in my precinct to run against me for Precinct Committeeman. They succeeded in doing that in 2000, but not since. Recently, one of their leaders rudely told me that she had thrown my precinct letter into her trash. This leader played a major role in a) ending my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, b) ending my bid to be selected to fill a Wheaton City Council West District vacancy in 2019, c) ending my chairmanship of TAPROOT Republicans in 2012, d) ending my membership on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee in 2011, e) ending my service as the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster in 2010 and 2004, and f) ending my bid to serve as the MTRO Treasurer in 2004.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, including Money Magazine, have always viciously demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being overpaid.

— Trump Targets J.B. Pritzker: ‘Presided Over The Destruction And Disintegration Of Illinois’ – Hank Berrien
https://www.dailywire.com/news/trump-targets-j-b-pritzger-presided-over-the-destruction-and-disintegration-of-illinois
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Sunday, former President Trump targeted Illinois Democratic governor J.B. Pritzker, who has been considered a rising star in the Democratic Party but who has presided over the state while natives flee. Pritzker was inaugurated as governor of the state in January 2019; between July 2021 and July 2022, over 142,000 people left Illinois. The only state that had a faster rate of population decline during that same time period was New York. “Sloppy J.B. Pritzker, the Rotund Governor from the once great State of Illinois, who makes Chris Christie look like a male model, and whose family wanted him out of the business because he was so pathetic at helping them run it, has presided over the destruction and disintegration of Illinois at levels never seen before in any State. Crime is rampant and people are, sadly, fleeing Illinois. Unless a change is made at the Governor’s level, Illinois can never be Great Again,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. Pritzker has a massive $52.7 billion 2025 spending plan that will require enormous tax increases of an estimated $898 million. Illinois currently has the second-highest corporate income tax rate in the country. He wants to extend extension of Illinois’ cap on net operating losses, which would raise taxes on companies losing money, as Bryce Hill, Director of Fiscal and Economic Research with the Illinois Policy Institute, pointed out in a comprehensive piece about Pritzker’s 2025 budget. Pritzker would “effectively raise taxes by $186 million on retailers,” Hill noted, adding, “Retailers now retain 1.75% of the sales taxes for collecting and sending them to the government, so long as they properly file and pay their applicable sales taxes by their due dates. Under Pritzker’s proposal, the value of this tax credit would be capped at $1,000 per month.” Hill asserts that Pritzker’s 2025 budget proposal includes “a hidden $93 million income tax hike on individuals. He will get that money by shortchanging the inflation adjustment to the state’s standard income tax exemption. … the state’s current standard exemption for tax year 2024 is set a $2,775 per income taxpayer and dependent. Pritzker wants to reduce this exemption to $2,550 per income taxpayer and dependent – a change that would only account for one years’ worth of inflation adjustments instead of the two taxpayers are due.”)

— America Has A Fatherhood Crisis
https://www.gopusa.com/report-america-has-a-fatherhood-crisis/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Several reports indicate that America has a fatherhood crisis, which has created a culture of “floundering” young men. Young men from non-intact families are more likely to end up in prison or jail, drop out of high school or not graduate from college compared to young men raised by their married biological parents with their father living in the home, a new Institute for Family Studies report argues. “What we see for young men today is a family-to-prison-or-college pipeline that is more likely to deliver boys from intact families towards college graduation and boys from non-intact families towards prison or jail,” the report states. “Young men raised by their two married, biological parents are almost 20 percentage points more likely to graduate college than end up in prison/jail.”)

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-RIGHT SOURCES

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Politics is nasty/vicious. Democrats are nasty/vicious. Generally, people vote for candidates who share their demographics. The more that it looks like Trump will win on November 5, 2024, the more hatred that Democrats will promote against Republicans and especially against Republicans who share Trump’s demographics: heterosexual, conservative, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. Because Biden shares the aforesaid demographics with Trump except political beliefs, religion, and national origin, anticipate/expect that Democrats will ever-increasingly promote more hated against conservatives, Protestants, and German Americans. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What does voting for Democrat candidates say about you? It says that you want dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, Affirmative Action and DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination. Political consultants who claim to be Republican but who are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, or RINOs advise Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders to go “Democrat-Lite,” if not to go woke, if not to go anti-conservative, if not to promote the aforesaid planks in the Democrat Party platform. I have been a member of the American Association of Political Consultants since 2001. I served on the board of directors of its Midwest Chapter 2001-2004. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What are your demographics? What does the future look like for those who share your demographics? Under the Democrats and under the RINOs, your future is ever-increasingly bleaker the more of the following that you are: heterosexual, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or if you have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly give more and more and more preference to those who are the following: LGBTQ, liberal/moderate, non-Republican, non-American, minority, female, younger, poor, veteran, unmarried, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. – Dave Diersen

Republican leaders and candidates should be opposing the aforesaid big time, they should be arguing/shouting why the aforesaid is destructive. But instead, far too many Republican leaders and candidates paint themselves as being Democrat-Lite if not anti-conservative. – Dave Diersen

I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination. I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 that charged my Democrat superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. Because of the aforesaid, my Democrat superiors in the federal government took many big adverse actions against me and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Because of the aforesaid, I filed a lawsuit against my Democrat superiors for political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination in 1998. – Dave Diersen

ECONOMIST
— Changes to China’s gaokao exam are about politics, not fairness. Extra points for minority students are going away. (COMMENT: Since 1966, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have decried my passing tests including the tests I passed a) to get hired by the Post Office in 1966, IRS in 1971, and GAO in 1980, b) to earn a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, an MBA from Loyola in 1976, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997, c) to become a CPA in 1979 and a Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and d) to become a licensed CPA in 1981. They have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I passed the aforesaid tests because I unfairly benefitted tremendously from tremendous discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time, etc. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college, that my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and that my mother attended high school.)
https://www.economist.com/china/2024/06/06/changes-to-chinas-gaokao-exam-are-about-politics-not-fairness
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Starting on June 7th millions of young people will sit for the world’s largest academic test. China’s university-entrance exam, known as the gaokao, is punishingly difficult. Students spend endless hours cramming for it. But it is also meant to be meritocratic. Work hard, score well and, no matter what your social background, you can get into a good college. Yet the test is administered in ways that do not seem so meritocratic. Local governments are allowed to produce their own versions of the gaokao, with different questions and scoring methods. Students in elite cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai, enjoy an easier route into local universities, which include some of the country’s finest.)

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. At the convention, there was very strong support for Trump and for Dean White for IRP National Committeeman, but there were very few delegates from DuPage County. IRP chairman Don Tracy spoke vehemently against direct election of IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members. Many of the delegates who I spoke with had been strongly lobbied by opponents of direct election against direct election. Tracy’s IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee (PRC) killed direct election. Illinois Republicans who want direct election are overwhelmingly conservative. Illinois Republicans who oppose direct election are overwhelming moderate, that is, they reject some, many, most, if not all the planks in the Republican Party platform. It seems that to get PRC members to kill direct election, those who oppose direct election a) loaded the PRC with members who oppose direct election or could be made to oppose direct election and b) dumped efforts to move the platform to the left. I was appointed to the PRC even though I have always promoted direct election. But that appointment was made before those who oppose direct election knew that major efforts were going to be made to promote direct election. Therefore, because of that, I was removed from the PRC before its first meeting. The Democrat news media at the convention again demonstrated its rudeness and hostility toward me. I have attended as a delegate and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor all the IRP State Conventions since 2000. The 2020 convention was by Zoom. The last big push for direct election was at the 2008 convention. – Dave Diersen

Questions for your representative on the National Committeeman and National Committeewoman Committee: when the final vote was taken, a) did you vote for White or for Shaw for National Committeeman and why and b) did you vote for Belford or for Lasonde for National Committeewoman and why? Which candidates did you vote for in earlier rounds of voting and why? Questions for your representative on the Platform and Resolutions Committee, when the final vote was taken, did you vote for or against the following and why a) each of the proposed resolutions including direct election of IRP State Central Committee members and b) the IRP platform?

The leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization ever-increasingly blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. They ever-increasingly blame me and blame my newsletters for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000.

They stress that I promote planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including its personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. They stress my bad demographics: conservative, Republican, American, White, male, old, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America for a long time. They stress the many big adverse actions that they have taken against me, most recently, removing me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee.

JEFF BERKOWITZ
— IL GOP’s Grassroots ride Dean White into the Winner’s Circle in Collinsville, IL. Could this be a turning point for the IL GOP?
https://jeffberkowitz208.substack.com/p/il-gops-grassroots-ride-dean-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yesterday, about 300 “Grassroots” county delegates to the IL GOP convention overcame strong recent GOP historical precedent and took control of the Party, at least for an afternoon. The grassroots wrested control away from the Establishment IL GOP State Central Committee (“SCC”). Usually, the seventeen member SCC chooses the IL RNC Committeeman and Committeewoman and the delegates in attendance at the convention docilely ratify the choice, almost proforma. But, not yesterday. Choice of a new IL GOP RNC Committeeman. This weekend, about five hundred IL Republicans gathered in Collinsville, IL to choose their new IL RNC committeeman and committeewoman to serve on the 168 member Republican National Committee, as IL committeeman Richard Porter, watch by clicking here (12 (10?) years of service) and IL committeewoman Demetra Demonte (16 years of service) were both term limited from continuing on the RNC. The main job of an RNC committeeman is to be the link or nexus between the state GOP and the RNC on national campaigns. Large elements of that nexus include national fundraising, message development and political organizing, especially for the national Presidential and mid-term elections. The primary interest of the IL GOP grassroots is the recruiting and election of quality state and local candidates and a party apparatus related thereto, not a national committeeman. But the symbolism and precedent of yesterday’s reversal of the establishment SCC was important to the grassroots, and they seemed to shout, as they descended on Collinsville, Carpe Diem, sensing victory would be theirs. On the other hand, get a sense of what could happen if these two often divergent parts of the IL GOP worked together— by watching RNC Committeeman Porter, linked to above (18:58-19:58), as he explains more than three years ago, the potential interaction between IL State operators, GOP U. S. Senators, the entire Congress and the RNC to solve Illinois’ fiscal issues, including the need to lower public sector pension and education costs— and taxes to make IL more fiscally stable and attractive in the long run to taxpayers and residents. . .Rhonda Belford, GOP Chair of Hardin County, was the SCC’s choice over Joan Lasonde for IL GOP Committeewoman, and Belford was easily approved by the Delegates in the Hall. Lasonde, residing on Chicago’s North Shore, is the 9th CD member of the SCC. The next steps for the IL GOP. So, we’ll find out in due course if Dean White, who is a bit of an unknown commodity in IL GOP politics, is everything the grassroots hope he will be. More importantly, we will no doubt learn soon if the SCC has learned how to make effective use of the grassroots’ energy to start producing some general election wins, perhaps even for IL Governor, since the stakes for IL are so high. And, many in the IL GOP almost surely will start chanting that familiar phrase: “Now is the time for all good men [and women] to come to the aid of their Party.”)

AUSTIN AMERICAN STATEMAN
— Texas Republican convention shows ultraconservative flank still controls the party. The dueling themes of party unity and purging the GOP of “RINOs” were the subplots of the Texas State Republican Convention. – John C. Moritz (COMMENT: One could compare and contrast the Texas Republican Party with the Illinois Republican Party. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. RINOs paint themselves as being Democrat-Lite if not as being anti-conservative. RINOs reject some, many, most, if not virtually all the planks in the Republican Party platform. RINOs get rid of Republicans like me who support the planks that they reject. I should write a book about the biggest past and present RINO candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I made a big decision in January of this year,” Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller told the cheering delegates Saturday as the three-day Texas State Republican Convention was heading into its final hours. “I announced that I was declaring open season on RINOs with no bag limits.” Miller, an irrepressible conservative who likes to bill himself as “Donald Trump’s man in Texas,” was referring to that strain of the GOP faithful that has been castigated as “Republicans In Name Only” because of a willingness to sometimes seek common ground with Texas’ minority party. His remarks, which were presaged by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Attorney General Ken Paxton, came in the final weekend before Tuesday’s runoffs, in which several Republican members of the state House — including Speaker Dade Phelan, who in the minds of many of the delegates and some of the GOP officeholders is Texas’ RINO-in-chief — are fighting for their political lives in the face of challengers backed by deep-pocket conservative donors and an army of activists from the party’s right flank. That right flank emerged as the dominant force among the almost 10,000 delegates and alternates who chose to spend at least the first part of their holiday weekend shaping the future of the Texas Republican Party, which has held unchecked power in the state for more than two decades.)

— ILLINOIS GOP EMBRACES TRUMP AT STATE CONVENTION AS LIBERTARIANS CHALLENGE HIS VIEWS IN CHICAGO SPEECH – Damon R. Sheffield (COMMENT: I should write a book about those Libertarian plants in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me since 2000. Libertarians promote booze, gambling, pot, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, etc.)
https://hoodline.com/2024/05/illinois-gop-embraces-trump-at-state-convention-as-libertarians-challenge-his-views-in-chicago-speech/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Republicans threw their full weight behind former President Donald Trump during their state convention this past Saturday, as reported by the Chicago Tribune. The GOP adopted a platform that fiercely criticized Democrats for their stance on abortion rights, bail reform, and transgender issues. U.S. Rep. Mary Miller did not hold back in her condemnation of President Joe Biden and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, calling their vision for the country and state “a disaster” and even labelling it “evil.”. . . The dichotomy of the two events emphasizes the divisive figure Trump continues to represent, even within varied conservative circles. Illinois Republicans, particularly in rural regions, remain staunchly pro-Trump, with GOP Chair Don Tracy suggesting that Republican enthusiasm for the former president was on the rise. Meanwhile, Trump’s reception at the Libertarian convention exposes the frictions within a party known for its commitment to individual liberties and small government—a party where some view Trump as antithetical to their values. The Illinois GOP’s adopted platform attacks Democrats on a number of fronts, including abortion, law enforcement, and election integrity, according to the Chicago Tribune. They vehemently oppose the state’s pro-abortion laws and have added new language to their platform on gender identity, aligning closely with Trump’s traditional conservative views. Their actions signal an intention to fiercely fight to regain a foothold in suburbia, despite the potential risks of alienating moderate voters with their undiluted embrace of Trump.)

— Democrats say “How Donald Trump Still Lives in the 1980s. The greed-is-good era was the last time his preferred public image was intact, and he’s been returning there in ways large and small as he sits through his criminal trial in Manhattan.” What did you do during the 1980s? I worked as an Analyst for the Democrats who ran GAO. In 1980, I completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. In 1981, I passed the Certified Internal Auditor on my first attempt and became a licensed CPA. In 1984, my wife and I had own home built in Wheaton. In 1986, the GAO manager who had arranged for my transfer from IRS was finally able to get me assigned to audits of IRS and to promote me to GS-13, currently $115,439/year. But my Democrat GAO superiors forced him to retire in 1987. In 1988, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. In 1989, in retaliation, they threw me off audits of IRS, gave me a very bad job assignment and performance appraisal, and ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes.)

New graduates need to earn at least $50,000 a year, on average, in their first decade off campus for the degree to pay off, according to new research from Strada Education Foundation, a nonprofit that analyzed federal education and earnings data. If they can land that salary, or make $500,000 before taxes over 10 years, state school graduates across sectors will find the investment worth it and should be able to pay off their loans, Strada says. – Alyssa Lukpat (COMMENT: During the almost 9 years that I worked for IRS 1971-1980, IRS paid me more than $800,000 in salary In today’s dollars. My IRS salary increased from $54,728/year (GS-7 Step 1) to $110,020/year (GS-12 Step 5). I earned a bachelor’s degree in business from NIU in 1970. I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980.)

NEW YORK MAGAZINE
— The Christian Nationalist Danger Behind the ‘Appeal to Heaven’ Flag – Sarah Jones (COMMENT: What is your religion? How are members of your religion stereotyped? What are members of your religion blamed for? What have their successes been attributed to? I am Protestant. My parents had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL in 1962. Protestants are ever-increasingly negatively stereotyped as being patriotic and even worse things. Protestants are ever-increasingly blamed for all the problems that America has. The successes that Protestants have is ever-increasingly attributed to their benefitting from discrimination against non-Protestants. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would cite examples in which my critics/opponents have used negative Protestant stereotypes and my being Protestant against me. It is called religious discrimination.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— GOP UNITY: The Illinois Republican Party is holding its state convention today and Saturday in the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. After eight years of divisiveness among the rank and file, party leaders hope to emerge united as they head into election season. No matter where they stand on Donald Trump, they agree on wanting to make Joe Biden a one-term president. “We’re at a pivotal point where you’re seeing Republicans starting to get back together,” Illinois GOP Executive Director Matthew Janes told Playbook. “You’re seeing a lot more unity recently.” The Illinois GOP has evolved much the way the national Republican party has, with right-leaning Republicans veering more right and centrists somehow being seen as being left on party issues. In Illinois, the shift has been geographic. In 2014, the Republican base was strong in Chicago’s suburbs and exurbs, while southern Illinois still saw Democrats have an influence in party politics. That’s all shifted: When Trump came on the scene, rural voters were drawn to his blue collar message and there was a shift in the state party’s cultural and economic bases. Chicago-area Republicans weren’t always in line with Trump. And many still aren’t. Embracing Trump: Illinois GOP National Committeeman Richard Porter was among those hoping to see a new Republican generation in the White House. He backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president. Now, he says he’s most concerned about taking back the White House from Democrats. “I am for winning. Trump is our nominee and the Democrats have behaved appallingly in regard to Trump so it’s not hard to support him,” Porter told Playbook, referring to the former president’s recent court fight in New York. That attitude is expected to prevail in Collinsville this weekend, where the biggest task is to line up behind a party platform and elect a new Republican committee man and committee woman to represent the state within the national Republican Convention (The party elects one man and one woman to those seats.). Why the change: Term limits are keeping Porter and Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte from running again. They have each served two terms. In the running for their seats: GOP state central committee members Mark Shaw and Dean White and Illinois Republican Finance Committee Chair Vince Kolber. Shaw is also an Illinois adviser to Trump’s campaign. Women candidates are State Central Committee members Joan Lasonde and Rhonda Belford, and former Republican legislative candidate Julie Cho. All of the candidates are right-leaning, Trump-supporting Republicans. If you are Demetra DeMonte, Playbook would like to hear from you. Email skapos@politico.com )

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Trump putting his finger on the scale to revamp GOP platform four years after it froze in time – Elaine Mallon (COMMENT: Those who oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a far-right conservative. Since 2015, they have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a Trump-promoter. I should write a book about those who oppose direct elect election of IRP SCC members and who oppose Trump and who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/presidential/3015947/trump-revamp-gop-platform-after-it-froze-in-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump campaign is pushing to elect those closely aligned with the presumptive presidential nominee’s agenda to positions on the Republican National Committee‘s Platform Committee. Much of this effort by former President Donald Trump’s campaign relates to concerns that far-right conservatives will push stances on abortion and same-sex marriage that may alienate the general population just ahead of the general election. The RNC’s Platform Committee consists of a male and a female representative from each U.S. state and territory, and it will play an instrumental role in shaping the party’s stances on dozens of policy issues. The party’s current platform is a 66-page document that hasn’t been reviewed since the 2016 election. In 2020, the RNC passed a resolution stating it would not adopt a new platform, pointing to the COVID-19 pandemic interfering with the party’s ability to hold meetings. That year marked the first time in more than 150 years that the RNC decided not to make adjustments to its official platform, per NBC News. Shiree Verdone served as co-chairwoman of Trump’s campaign in Arizona in both 2016 and 2020 but is no longer involved with the Republican Party of Arizona. She told the outlet that Trump’s team is concerned about who is getting on the party’s platform committee. “Trying to get normal folks on the Platform and Rules [committees], but God knows if there’s any normal people in that delegation,” Verdone said. The committee’s leadership consists of strong Trump supporters, including Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg, Randy Evans, who will serve as executive director. Russ Vought, Trump’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, will serve as policy director, and Ed Martin, the head of several conservative groups, will serve as deputy policy director. “The campaign is really getting into it and involved this year in [Platform Committee] races in states,” a veteran Republican operative told the outlet. “There is a sense among them that the platform should not be pushed too far to the right on a few issues, but I keep hearing abortion and marriage specifically.” While far-right conservatives have called for a national ban on abortion, Trump has been steadfast in his stance that the matter will be left up to the states. “I DO NOT SUPPORT A BAN ON BIRTH CONTROL, AND NEITHER WILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!” Trump declared on Truth Social.)

WISCONSIN LAW JOURNAL
— Wisconsin GOP convention spotlights abortion, higher education, immigration and national security – Steve Schuster (COMMENT: What actions will the Illinois Republican Party take at its State Convention in Collinsville May 24-25?)
https://wislawjournal.com/2024/05/18/wisgop-convention-spotlights-abortion-higher-education-immigration-and-national-security/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There may have been a few empty seats, but there was certainly no lack of heat as the 2024 Republican Party of Wisconsin State Convention kicked off in Appleton Saturday. Elected officials from Washington, D.C. to Madison spoke about issues impacting Wisconsinites, ranging from abortion and immigration to the University of Wisconsin’s failure to enforce the law and condemn antisemitic behavior on the Milwaukee and Madison campuses. Opening remarks were given by Brian Schimming, Chairman Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Are we going to do what it takes to save America?” Schimming asked the audience. Foreign policy Speaking on the Federal legislative panel, Senator Ron Johnson, Rep. Van Orden, Rep. Bryan Steil tore apart the Democrats responses and failure to condemn antisemitism and enforce state law during recent protests. “We must stand with Israel. I stand with Israel,” said Van Orden, and the room applauded. . .Abortion Johnson urged the party to remain united to protect the right to life (pro-life). “Within the Republican Party, we have a broad spectrum … I think we all agree that life begins at conception, want to protect life,” Johnson said. “I completely respect that. But that’s not where probably most Americans, most Wisconsinites, and probably even most Republicans land,” Johnson added. . .The conservative media also was critical of the recent mainstream coverage of the UWM Pro-Palestinian protesters. A panelist said the mainstream media described the protests as “peaceful … or they (pro-Palestinian protesters) were just delivering food, or praying” when in reality they were chanting antisemitic slogans, graffitied sidewalks and walls, and erected illegal tents. “The things I described did not make most, if not all media reports,” the panelist said, noting “the media is censoring things.”)

— Questions concerning the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention in Collinsville May 24-25 – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
— Who will the speakers at the convention be?
— How many delegates will attend and how many from each of the 102 counties?
— Who represents each of the 17 congressional districts on the IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee and what is their contact information?
— Who has replaced me as the member who represents the 3rd Congressional District on that committee and what reasons have been given for my removal?
— When will the committee post on the IRP website its most recent draft platform and list of resolutions?
— At the convention on May 24, which committee members are going to vote for or against the resolution that calls for direct election of IRP State Central Committee members?
— At the convention on May 24, which committee members are going to vote for or against strengthening or weakening the following in the platform: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, enforcement of immigration laws including adding E-Verity, discouragement of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, protection of Second Amendment rights, and equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving)?
— Who are all the candidates for IRP National Committeeman and Committeewoman? What are their qualifications? At this point, how many votes do each of them have?

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Who leads conservatives in Illinois today? Hopefully, by now, those leaders know which of the 17 members on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee are going to vote to strengthen the IRP platform and which ones are going to vote to weaken it. Because IRP leaders ever-increasingly say and do less to defend and advance the following planks in the Republican Party platform, I fear that efforts are underway to weaken those planks: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). IRP leaders ever-increasingly talk and/or act like they believe that to win elections in Illinois, the IRP has to be Democrat-Lite if not officially dump the aforesaid planks. If anti-conservative IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee members win by small margins on May 24 in Collinsville, conservative leaders should be ready to immediately file timely minority reports like the one that they filed at the 2016 convention so that delegates can vote for them on May 25. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Those who want to drive conservatives like me out of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) and destroy the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO use the current system to elect IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members. So of course, they vehemently oppose direct election of IRP SCC members. They take all the adverse actions that they can to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me who support direct election. So far, they have a) ended my membership on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee this year, b) ended my role as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, c) ended my bid to be appointed to fill a Wheaton City Council vacancy in 2019, d) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, e) ended my chairmanship of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois in 2012, f) ended my membership on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee in 2011, g) ended my service as the MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, h) ended my membership on the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee in 2007, i) almost got ICRC to censure me in 2006, j) ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004, and k) ended my membership on the American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors in 2004. – Dave Diersen

I am all of the aforesaid. MTRO leaders are overjoyed that I was removed from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee.

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/national-international/missouri-candidate-kkk-can-stay-on-republican-ballot/3440913/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A longshot Missouri gubernatorial candidate with ties to the Ku Klux Klan will stay on the Republican ticket, a judge ruled Friday. Cole County Circuit Court Judge Cotton Walker denied a request by the Missouri GOP to kick Darrell McClanahan out of the August Republican primary. McClanahan is running against Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe, state Sen. Bill Eigel and others for the GOP nomination to replace Gov. Mike Parson, who is barred by term limits from seeking reelection. McClanahan’s lawyer, Dave Roland, said the ruling ensures that party leaders do not have “almost unlimited discretion to choose who’s going to be allowed on a primary ballot.” . . . The Missouri GOP accepted his party dues but denounced him after a former state lawmaker posted photos on social media that appear to show McClanahan making the Nazi salute. McClanahan confirmed the accuracy of the photos to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. In his decision, Walker wrote that the Republican Party “has made clear that it does not endorse his candidacy, and it remains free to publicly disavow McClanahan and any opinions the plaintiff believes to be antithetical to its values.” “I’m not sure they ever actually intended to win this case,” said McClanahan’s lawyer, Roland. “I think the case got filed because the Republican Party wanted to make a very big public show that they don’t want to be associated with racism or anti-Semitism. And the best way that they could do that was filing a case that they knew was almost certain to lose.” The Associated Press’ emailed requests for comment to the Missouri GOP executive director and its lawyer were not immediately returned Friday. But Missouri GOP lawyers have said party leaders did not realize who McClanahan was when he signed up as a candidate back in February. McClanahan has argued that the Missouri GOP was aware of the beliefs. He previously ran as a Republican for U.S. Senate in 2022. In a separate lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League last year, McClanahan claimed the organization defamed him by calling him a white supremacist in an online post. In his lawsuit against the ADL, McClanahan described himself as a “Pro-White man.” McClanahan wrote that he is not a member of the Ku Klux Klan; he said received an honorary one-year membership. And he said he attended a “private religious Christian Identity Cross lighting ceremony falsely described as a cross burning.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A high school senior was killed just weeks before graduation when a suspected drunk driver, speeding at over 120 mph, split his car into two during a crash in a Chicago suburb. Marko Niketic, 17, was driving with his 16-year-old girlfriend in Glenview, IL when a sports car struck their vehicle at an intersection just after 11 p.m. on May 12. The driver, Taeyoung Kim, 21, had been driving his 2021 Ford Mustang with a passenger from his home in Northbrook to downtown Chicago and back earlier in the day, according to court records obtained by NBC Chicago. “The investigation revealed at 2308 hours (11:08 p.m.) on May 12, Kim drove his vehicle westbound on East Lake Ave, at a high rate of speed in a reckless manner,” the Glenview Police Department said. Kim’s car crashed into Niketic as the teen was making a left turn through the intersection of East Lake Ave and Meadow Lane, approximately 20 miles northwest of Chicago. Kim had been racing past other cars going westbound on Lake Ave, with one driver noting Kim increasing speeds and turning his headlights off. “As Niketic began turning, Kim’s vehicle approached the intersection at an immense rate of speed, still with the headlights off,” the court documents allege. “Just as Kim was entering the intersection, the headlights turned back on as Kim’s vehicle crashed into Niketic’s vehicle.” The front of Kim’s car struck the driver’s side of Niketic’s vehicle, splitting it into two. The front half of Niketic’s sedan remained in the road, with the back half being sent flying through a nearby fence and landing in a backyard. Kim’s car, which had a dashcam recording his joyride, came to a halt near a tree on the side of the road. Witnesses inside the homes near the scene of the crash immediately called 911 before rushing to the scene and observed Niketic inside his vehicle, appearing to be deceased, Kim’s bond court proffer read. Other witnesses observed Kim sitting inside his car and admitted he had been drinking, while his passenger was lying on the ground bleeding heavily, WMAQ reported. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend and Kim’s passenger were both rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Niketic’s girlfriend, who remains unidentified, suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage, hematoma of the brain, a fracture of the pelvis vertebrae and hyper-density of the left frontal lobe of the brain with loss of consciousness and seizure. She was released from the hospital on Friday. Kim’s passenger sustained a fracture to his back and a severed artery in the crash. Kim suffered a broken femur, and a blood-drawn test concluded he had a blood alcohol level of .088, the test also revealed he had cannabis in his system. During their investigation, police found a bong, rolling papers, a one-hitter cannabis pipe with residue and two plastic containers with cannabis residue inside Kim’s vehicle. Kim was arrested on Friday and charged with two counts of aggravated DUI causing death, reckless homicide, aggravated DUI causing great bodily harm, DUI of alcohol, DUI of drugs, and several traffic violations including speeding 35 mph over the limit. He appeared in court on Saturday. Kim is being held without bond, and his next court date is scheduled for May 24, according to jail records viewed by The Post. Niketic’s funeral was held on Thursday, two days before his high school, Glenbrook South, held its prom. Niketic was set to graduate on June 2. “He’s one of those people, you meet him, and he’s glowing. The most genuine human ever,” friend Preston Shute told NBC Chicago. “He had a lot of stuff ahead of him. I can’t really process it.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Overlap and duplication cost taxpayers billions, according to a new report from a Congressional watchdog. The U.S. Government Accountability Office’s annual report identified opportunities to save billions of dollars by reducing overlap, duplication and fragmentation across the federal government. The report outlines 112 measures that Congress and federal agencies could take to save money and improve government services. “This year’s report provides Congress and federal agencies with new opportunities to save federal dollars, increase revenue, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of a wide range of federal programs,” said Gene Dodaro, comptroller general and head of the GAO. “By addressing this year’s pointed list, as well as open recommendations to both agencies and Congress from GAO’s past work, the federal government could potentially save tens of billions of dollars.”)

All my GAO, IRS, and Post Office coworkers who they promoted over me were Democrats who were minority, female, younger than me, and/or veteran.)
