— 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.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee (SCC) has voted to remove Mark Shaw as Vice Chairman of the party. They will be voting next to remove him from the SCC. (COMMENT: Illinois Republicans anxiously await a press release on this from the Illinois Republican Party (IRP). Shaw is charged with acquired multiple delegate badges and voting as a delegate when was not appointed as one. The leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) refused to appoint me as a delegate to the 2004 IRP State Convention in Collinsville. I appealed to Kirk Dillard, the DuPage County Republican Central Committee Chairman at the time, who immediately appointed me as a delegate. Further, the IRP Executive Director refused my $250 for a GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter ad in the convention’s directory and cancelled my and my wife’s hotel room reservation.  In 2004, MTRO leaders blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters a) for George Ryan’s problems, b) for George Ryan’s chief aide Scott Fawell’s problems, c) for Milton Township Assessor Jim Gumm’s problems, d) for Jim Ryan’s loss to Blagojevich in the 2002 gubernatorial election, e) for Durkin’s loss to Durbin for U.S. Senate in 2002,  f) for Andrew McKenna’s loss to Jack Ryan in the 2004 U.S. Senate Republican primary, and g) for etc. In 2004, in addition to having been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, I was an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois Vice Chairman, and an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors member. At the 2024 IRP State Convention, there were only 12 delegates from DuPage County. I was the only one at the convention with three badges – delegate, press, and vendor.)

— The IRS is cracking down on a tax loophole for the rich. The effort could raise $50 billion. (COMMENT: A loophole is a deduction that you take but your critics/opponents do not. As an IRS Revenue Officer 1971-1980, I took and deducted graduate evening a) business courses at Loyola 1972-1976 and b) accounting courses at DePaul 1976-1980 because my IRS employee manual encouraged me to take such courses. But extremely few of my Democrat IRS coworkers did that. In 1978, to get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors outrageously disallowed all the courses that I had deducted. To do that, they ignored the reasons that I gave for taking the courses in my college applications and falsely argued that the courses did not relate to my job duties, did not help maintain or improve my job skills, were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and qualified me for a new trade or business. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They would not have done that if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They used “up-or-out” to write me off because they had not promoted me to GS-13 (currently $115,439/year) by the time I was 25 year old in 1974.)

Leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC) , and Illinois Republican Party (IRP) stress that they removed me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee in 2024, that they ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, that they ended my bid to be selected to fill a Wheaton City Council West District vacancy in 2019, that they gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, that they ended my chairmanship of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois in 2012, that they ended my membership on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee in 2011, that they ended my service as MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, that they ended my membership on the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee in 2007, that they almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, that they ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004, and that they ended my membership on the American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors in 2004. My MTRO, DCRCC, and IRP critics/opponents have worked harder against me than against any Democrat. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

My father made enough money in 1953 that he could send me to kindergarten at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. Since then, my critics/opponents have used that demonize him, denigrate him, and condemn him as having been filthy rich. But neither of my parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He died suddenly in 1969 and never made more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. My mother never attended high school.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Epic Meltdown: IL GOP Vice Chair Mark Shaw Pens Unhinged Rant, Calls Grassroots “Uninformed Lemmings” as Dele-Gate Scandal Intensifies
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/epic-meltdown-il-gop-vice-chair-mark-shaw-pens-unhinged-rant-calls-grassroots-uninformed-lemmings-as-dele-gate-scandal-intensifies.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Saturday, embattled Illinois Republican Party Vice Chairman, former Trump Campaign Advisor and State Central Committee member Mark 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. In his 10-page meltdown, Shaw was in attack mode, angrily attacking fellow SSC members, county GOP leaders, the grassroots – which he referred to as “uniformed lemmings,” and he even borrowed a line from Democrat Gov. JB Pritzker – calling former GOP attorney general nominee Tom DeVore a “grifter.” In October 2021, Gov. Pritzker called DeVore a “grifter” for filing lawsuits against the governor’s mask mandate in schools during the pandemic. As it has been previously reported, Shaw made a fool of himself during the GOP State Convention in Collinsville last month 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. Shaw – in his letter, asserts that he was a delegate, but text messages reveal just the opposite. In one text message exchange, Shaw asks Lake County GOP Central Committee Chairman Keith Brin – who was maintaining the delegate list as the local party leader, if he could be a delegate, writing, “Keith: I would like to be a Delegate to the ILGOP State Convention from Lake County. What is the procedure for being placed on Lake County’s list of Delegates?”. . .But Brin never added Shaw to the delegate list – and Shaw never received an official notification from his county GOP leader stating that he was a delegate. If such a notification existed, Shaw would have included it in his 10-page manifesto – but he did not. And while Shaw was listed on an attendee list to attend the state convention, he was not included on Brin’s list as a delegate. But that didn’t stop Shaw – and photos and eyewitness accounts show Shaw at the convention wearing a “Delegate” badge – a direct violation of state party rules. . .The embattled state party leader, who’s actions continue to embarrass Republicans statewide, also took personal shots at Brin and fellow SSC members Sean Morrison and Aaron Del Mar – turning a letter that was supposed to be a defense of his actions into a script for the Jerry Springer Show. The petty and epic 10-page meltdown sounded more like a childish rant – and not something you’d expect from a senior member of the Illinois Republican Party. The unhinged letter also exposed a lack of leadership within the party and proved yet again why Illinois Republicans remain in the super minority – voiceless and irrelevant on local and state matters. The letter also showed how much disdain Shaw has for the powerful and influential grassroots base of the party – calling the grassroots “uninformed lemmings”, “keyboard warriors” and “political hacks.” Ironic – because in 2018 as co-chairman of the IL GOP, Shaw was put in charge to “protect the interests of the grassroots.” The IL GOP Vice Chair also suggested censoring this publication and it’s owners, writing, “What censure exists for those who seek to advance their own ‘careers’ at the expense of party unity…” Such censorship is common among Democrats and countries like Brazil, China and Russia, where opposing political voices and reporters are silenced. But this isn’t the first time this has been proposed. Last year, SSC member Jeanne Ives suggested censoring this publication after appearing agitated by stories covering the IL GOP and some of its leadership including IL GOP Chairman Don Tracy. During the 2022 Republican primary, Shaw was the Lake County GOP chair when Nimish Jani bussed Indian-American senior citizens to the Lake County Republican straw poll to rig the poll in favor of his candidate Richard Irvin. The senior citizens, escorted by staff wearing Irvin-Bourne tee shirts, arrived at the meeting with pre-filled ballots. Irvin would win the straw poll with 144 votes and his campaign used the poll to prove that his message was resonating with Republican voters. Shaw continues to take the position that the straw poll election, conducted under his watch, was fair. Irvin would go on to lose the primary election to the grassroots-backed candidate by 43 points despite receiving more than $50 million in funding. In February, Shaw, who is an Illinois advisor to the Trump campaign and a Trump delegate, was listed as a co-host for the IL GOP’s Bank Your Vote Gala in Rosemont that featured U.S. Senator John Kennedy (R-La). The co-chair of the gala was Greg Hart – a pro-choice, “Never-Trumper” who continues to bash the wildly popular former president and presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States on his social media accounts, repeatedly writing that Trump is “not fit to be leader of the free world.” And during the gala, none of the speakers mentioned Trump’s name on stage – deliberately avoiding him altogether. A point that surprised many in attendance. The gala also did not include any Trump signs or materials, which Shaw controlled. And despite serving as a senior advisor to the Trump Campaign in Illinois, Shaw remained silent on the appointment of Hart as the gala’s co-chair. Several county GOP leaders have called for Shaw to resign or be removed from his leadership positions. And sources have shared with this publication that Shaw has lost the support from a majority of the SSC. And the pressure is mounting for the IL GOP to take swift action as this scandal has the potential to cause permanent damage for the party ahead of the November elections.)

But extremely few of my Democrat IRS coworkers did that. In 1978, to get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors outrageously disallowed the courses that I had deducted. To do that, they ignored the reasons that I gave for taking the courses in my college applications and falsely argued that the courses did not relate to my job duties, did not help maintain or improve my job skills, were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and qualified me for a new trade or business. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They would not have done that if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They used “up-or-out” to write me off because they had not promoted me to GS-13 (currently $115,439/year) by the time I was 25 year old.)

What perspective do you bring to this?

(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.”)
— Some big GOP names are swinging through Illinois this week for fundraisers. Roger Stone is in the northwest suburbs today. Congressman Jim Jordan is in Lake Forest on Tuesday. And House Majority Leader Steve Scalise is in Lake County on Wednesday to stump for Joe McGraw in the IL-17 congressional race.

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.

— 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.”)

I should write a book about the impact that adverse actions taken against me has had on those around me. My Democrat Post Office superiors disallowed my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forced me to resign in 1969. My Firestone Store boss rudely/threadedly fired me because I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile in 1971. My Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974 and my education deductions in 1978. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They forced me to take their early retirement “offer” when I was 49 in 1997.)

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

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Democrats run the federal government and use Affirmative Action and DEI to get rid of Republicans. What career limiting things did you do? I avoided the draft. I became a federal employee and stayed one. I did not become a Democrat. 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

SEE: https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11 and https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11-0 But by then, my IRS career was ruined even though I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.

(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.)

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

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

What bad jobs did you take? I did yard work 1962-1964, delivered newspapers 1962-1966, washed dishes 1964-1966, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, delivered mail 1966-1969, worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971, pumped gasoline 1971-1972, collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. I grant that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take any of the aforesaid bad jobs that I took. But the answer is not to import illegals to take bad jobs. From what I see, many, most, if not virtually all illegals a) would not stoop to take the bad jobs that I took and/or are not qualified to take the bad jobs that I took.)

Wright, and Norm Hill. I remember the primary like it was yesterday. I conducted a major straw poll at the 2003 Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) fundraiser in which more than 400 voted. Ryan won that straw poll. At the time, I was the MTRO webmaster and an officer of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition. Ryan won the primary, but then withdrew. The Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee replaced Ryan with Alan Keyes. Keyes lost to Obama. Obama then on when on to become President. Of course, my critics/opponents continue blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for the all of the aforesaid. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I rigged the MTRO straw poll for Ryan to win. In addition, they continue to blame me and blame my newsletters for Jim Ryan losing to Blagojevich in 2002. They stress that I supported Pat O’Malley in that primary. Constructively, increasingly, my critics/opponents blame me and blame my newsletters for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. Should I start writing about my critics/opponents?)

U.S. taxpayers paid 85% of taxes voluntarily and on time from tax years 2014-2016, according to the agency’s latest tax gap estimate.)

They stress that if I had not avoided the draft, I would not have been able to a) buy new cars in 1967, 1968, 1971, 1973, 1978, etc. b) go on big vacations in 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, etc. c) graduate debt-free from college in 1970, d) buy real estate in 1972, 1974, 1976, 1978, 1984, 2020, and 2023, e) earn master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, f) get married in 1978, g) earn professional certifications in 1979, 1981, etc. h) earn a professional license in 1981, i) etc. In my book, I would focus on my critics/opponents who are/were veterans.)

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

GAO works for Congress. Democrats run GAO.

It is called patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, national origin discrimination, and misuse/abuse of veterans preference. I should write a book about the aforesaid. )

The Illinois Republican Party (IRP) should issue press releases each and every day that show that the Democrat Party platform promotes poverty and crime and that the Republican Party platform promotes prosperity and safety. The IRP should focus on the following planks in the Republican Party platform: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). Constructively, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters do what the IRP should be doing.

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

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-RIGHT SOURCES

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

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

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

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

I would focus on leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party (IRP). I would focus on those who have their operatives and dupes destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money.

COOK COUNTY RECORD
— Former employee alleges race-based discrimination against retail giant Meijer (COMMENT: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and the Post Office 1966-1969, none of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, or subordinates who were minority and/or female filed any kind of race or gender discrimination complaint. All the employees who my Democrat GAO superiors assigned me to supervise were liberal, Democrat, minority, female, younger, older, veteran, disabled, non-Protestant, non-German American, had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time, and/or had major performance problems. My Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to turn my supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me.)

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

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

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

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

https://abc7chicago.com/post/cps-school-budget-breakdown-released-chicago-public-schools-parents-transparency-funding-formula/14883754/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Tuesday, CPS released a school-by-school budget breakdown under a brand new funding formula based on equity rather than enrollment. “It’s schools that have high needs high poverty, high special ed, high English language learners. Those schools are going to get more recourses. They’re going to be smaller class sizes,” Martinez said. But Martinez admits a small number of schools will face cuts because of tighter budgets. At schools where enrollment is high and demographics are wealthier, class sizes may become a bit bigger.)

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

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

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

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

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