That is no way to win,” he said.)

They were furious when I got promoted to GS-9 (currently $66,942/year) in 1972 when I was 24, to GS-11 (currently $80,994/year) in 1973, and to GS-12 (currently $97,079/year) in 1974. I had completed only 3 graduate evening business courses at Loyola when I was promoted in 1972, 7 in 1973, and 11 in 1974. I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination on my first attempt until 1979.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago has one of the largest income inequality gaps in the country – Jack Grieve (COMMENT: To remedy that income inequality, in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and they gave my job to my Black subordinate. In today’s dollars, my annual income dropped by $84,910/year or 57%. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $150,075/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $65,165/year or only 43% of what my GAO salary was. Further, to remedy that income inequality, in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my income dropped by $22,996/year or 21%. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $110,020/year. My GAO salary was only $87,024/year or only 79% of what my IRS salary was. According to Democrats and RINOs, I have always been overpaid.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/economy/chicago-has-10th-highest-income-inequality-us
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A household in Chicago must bring home an annual salary of at least $149,219 to be among the city’s top 20% of earners. On the other hand, any household earning less than $27,255 is in the bottom quintile bracket. That means the city’s top one-fifth of earners make at least 5.47 times as much as the bottom one-fifth of earners.)

I should write a book about those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffered since 2005. I would focus on the candidates who suffered losses and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, and Illinois Center Right Coalition. I would focus on conservative and religious leaders and activists.)

— Primary apathy in Michigan: Democrats, GOP struggle as supporters mull whether to even vote. – JOEY CAPPELLETTI (COMMENT: What has your Republican Precinct Committeeman done to encourage registered Republicans in your precinct to vote in the March 19, 2024 primary? In my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton, I have hand-delivered a copy of the sample Republican ballot to each of the precinct’s 224 homes and 4 apartments that have at least one registered Republican voter. I am going to hand-deliver to those residences a letter from Annette Corrigan that encourages them to vote for her as a DuPage County Board District 4 write-in candidate.)

Democrat leaders ever-increasingly use DEI to take opportunities away from Republicans who are the aforesaid. My Democrat superiors in the federal government took opportunities away from me big time.

My ancestors have been in America since 1844. In my defense, I stress that my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois, that they never were in a position to discriminate against anyone, and that they never did discriminate against anyone.)

FORBES

But to give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to those who are the aforesaid is to discriminate against those who are not the aforesaid.

LINDQUIST VON HASEN & JOYCE
— Your Accounting Career Plan (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner than I did. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

THE HILL
— CPAC is denying press passes to ‘left-wing’ journalists – DOMINICK MASTRANGELO (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and I reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or who have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)

CNN
— Democrats ask “CPAC or TPAC?” and say “This year’s conservative gathering is all about Trump.” (COMMENT: What has discouraged you from attending CPACs? For me, it is CPAC’s declining emphasis on the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.)

HECHINGER REPORT
— Did your college application essay mention race? Talk to us about it. (COMMENT: In my 1971 Loyola and 1976 DePaul applications, I stressed that I was an IRS Revenue Officer and that my employee manual encouraged me to take graduate business and accounting courses and that I wanted to take those courses to maintain and improve my job skills as an IRS employee. But in 1978, to get rid of me, my IRS superiors disallowed the courses that I had taken ignoring/rejecting what I had stated in my applications and falsely arguing that I the courses a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) qualified me for a “new trade or business.” They would not have done that nor would they have disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974 and gotten rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974 if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I would not have complained about the aforesaid discrimination if my Democrat IRS superiors had not taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://hechingerreport.org/did-your-college-application-essay-mention-race-talk-to-us-about-it/

PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
— Anything seems obvious, after the fact. – Angela Duckworth Ph.D. (COMMENT: What have you spent lots of your time, effort, and/or money on? In retrospect and with benefit of hindsight, what did you learn? Would you have done those things if you knew then what you know now? If so, what would you have done differently? I should write a book about that. I would focus on my serving as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, and d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition officer 2003-2007. I would focus on those who took the most/biggest adverse actions against me because I did the aforesaid. I would focus on those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.)

— President Biden announces more student loan debt being forgiven. More than 100,000 student loan borrowers are getting some good news. Another $1 billion of student loan debt has been forgiven. (COMMENT: Not that I could have gotten a student loan, but because I worked my way through college, I was able to a) graduate debt-free from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 and owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, b) buy a new Corvette after my Charger was stolen 14 months after I graduated, c) buy a new town home in University Park 25 months after I graduated, d) buy a studio condo in downtown Chicago 48 months I graduated, e) buy a one bedroom condo there 72 months after I graduated, and f) buy a home in Wheaton with my wife 92 months after I graduated. In addition, I was able to pay for graduate evening courses in business at Loyola 1972-1976 and in accounting at DePaul 1976-1980. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary increased from $54,728/year in 1971 to $110,020/year in 1979. IRS promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974.)

In the late-1980s, my wife and I gave up trying to have children without trying IVF. Our doctors told us that because we both had serious fertility problems, success would have been very unlikely. We did not adopt or become foster parents. My Democrat GAO superiors used that against me viciously. They falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted not only that I lied about trying to have children, but that we were disgusting selfish DINKs (dual income, no kids) who never wanted to have children. They used that slander to punish me severely in 1989. They did the aforesaid because I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit in late 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR REPUBLICAN PRECINCT COMMITTEEMAN: What have you done and what will you do to encourage the registered Republican voters in our precinct to cast Republican ballots in the March 19, 2024 Republican primary? Which of your fellow township and county elected Republican Precinct Committeemen are running to serve as officers of our township and county Republican party organizations? Who is running to serve as the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) National Committeeman and Committeewoman? When and where is the next IRP State Central Committee meeting? Which IRP State Convention Committees have you asked to be appointed to?
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What are the demographics of your county? How have those demographics changed? As more and more and more voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats move into DuPage County, Democrat candidates get more and more and more votes in DuPage County. Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. How have the leaders of your Republican county and township party organizations responded to demographic changes? I should write a book about how the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization have responded to demographic changes since 2000. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

— Illinois GOP Slams Gov. Pritzker Over Migrant Funding – Nick Koutsobinas
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/illinois-gop-jb-pritzker/2024/02/21/id/1154496/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker, during his State of the State address on Wednesday, called for a budget proposal of $182 million to be directed toward the healthcare costs of illegal migrants in his state, the Center Square reported. Framing the issue as one of a broken immigration system as opposed to an open-border policy constructed by the Biden administration, the governor said: “I will not join the chorus of people in this country or in this chamber who eagerly look to slam shut an immigration door that was once open to our ancestors.” Pritzker then blamed Republicans in the United States Senate for not agreeing to what was nominally dubbed a border bill that tied more funding to Ukraine than the border and was negotiated in secret apart from Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. “Why did every single Republican run away from something that they claimed they desperately wanted,” Pritzker asked a crowd of Illinois politicians. “Because Donald Trump told them to, and they’re afraid of him.” The Illinois governor also blamed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for transporting migrants to Chicago and other sanctuary cities. But local conservative politicians say Pritzker is to blame for his state’s migrant crisis. “You can’t literally invite people to come here with this insane sanctuary state policy and then complain that we don’t have the resources when they arrive,” state Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, said after the governor’s address. Pritzker also outlined that part of the proposed funding would go to transitioning illegal migrants from temporary shelters to permanent housing. State Rep. Ryan Spain, R-Peoria, however, said there are better uses for the state’s budget. He said that “$2.8 billion dollars of state of Illinois spending” is going to “undocumented immigrant healthcare or migrant assistance. It is a gigantic sum of money that is crowding out other spending priorities that I think are worthwhile.” Newsmax could not verify the figure but has contacted Spain for comment. Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie, R-Savanna, has called for a statewide moratorium on accepting migrants, citing high expenses.)
— CPAC Enforces New Rule Barring Left-Wing Journalists – Jim Thomas (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)
https://www.newsmax.com/amp/politics/cpac-rule-gop/2024/02/21/id/1154466/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), chaired by Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union, has implemented a significant policy change, disallowing credentials for left-wing journalists, reported Mediaite. Schlapp stated, “CPAC has a new rule. If you’re a propagandist, you can buy a ticket, like everyone else, but you’re not in the media, and we’re not going to credential you by saying you’re in the media.” He criticized certain media outlets for their alleged anti-Trump and anti-conservative stance, asserting that such bias undermines the credibility of journalism. Schlapp announced this decision as the conference commenced near Washington, D.C., igniting reactions and discussions about media access and bias. In a conversation with Schlapp, Steve Bannon articulated concerns about what he perceives as biased reporting, accusing some journalists of engaging in “information warfare.” In response, Schlapp highlighted a perceived trend of targeting conservatives with unfavorable coverage, emphasizing a need for increased discernment in media accreditation. Acknowledging the existence of left-wing journalists who provide balanced coverage, Schlapp maintained that CPAC’s decision aims to address what he sees as pervasive bias within the media landscape. He cited instances where journalists selectively target conservatives, contributing to what he described as a hostile environment for those with differing viewpoints. Responding to questions regarding CPAC’s evolving identity and criticism of its increasingly MAGA-centric focus, Schlapp defended the conference’s trajectory. He dismissed concerns over relevance and emphasized a commitment to principles aligned with the conservative movement. Additionally, Schlapp shared an exchange between his wife and a Huffington Post reporter who was denied credentials, expressing satisfaction with what he described as a reaction from “leftist propagandists” who expected preferential treatment as a “real” journalist. “But as we know what’s happened to these corporate media entities is they’re 100%. If you listen to MSNBC, it’s 100% anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-conservative every moment of every day. They never have any kind of honest treatment of anything,” Schlapp said.)

— A closer look at which states best represent America — and which fall short. Survey says Utah is furthest from the overall representation of the U.S., while Illinois is closest. – Emma Pitts (COMENT: Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Because voters who have the aforesaid demographics vote for Democrats and because Illinois voters overwhelmingly vote for Democrats, Illinois voters must overwhelmingly have the aforesaid demographics. Those who vote for Democrats overwhelmingly promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, and age discrimination and that is exactly what Democrat Illinois elected official promote. If you backed out Chicago voters, and especially if you backed out Collar County voters too, Illinois would be to the right of Utah. In the 2022 Illinois gubernatorial election, Republican Bailey won in all but 17 of Illinois’ 102 counties.)
https://www.deseret.com/2024/2/21/24079255/united-states-represent-electoral-presidential-candidates-caucuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No single state can perfectly represent the United States in all aspects due to the country’s vast diversity, but Illinois had a “94% similarity when all demographics are averaged.” “It’s most similar in terms of gender, age, the share of residents born in the U.S. and the unemployment rate, with more than 99% similarity for each of those metrics,” according to the survey. Regarding representation, Utah ranked last place in the following categories, making it an atypical representation of the country: Religious composition of adults. Wealth gap. Age characteristics. However, every state contributes uniquely to the nation’s fabric, and the concept of being the “worst” or “best” representative is largely subjective and dependent on the measures used for comparison.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— The uncomfortable truth – Jonathan Panton
https://www.oakpark.com/2024/02/20/the-uncomfortable-truth/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some may live in denial, but entering the United States illegally is a crime. The village of Oak Park has continually used the term “asylum-seeker” to hide the truth. First, the term “asylum-seeker” is misleading. Applicants seeking asylum protection have the burden of (1) proving that they suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution; (2) the applicant is a member of a protected ground (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, political opinion); (3) there is a connection between the harm the applicant suffered and their protected ground; and (4) the applicant either fears harm from the home country’s government or the home country is unable or unwilling to control a private person. INA§101(a)(42)(A). Asylum is designed to protect those who meet these four elements. In the fiscal year of 2023, asylum relief was denied in the majority of cases. While some individuals are genuinely escaping persecution, there are many others who unlawfully enter the United States for economic opportunities. This does not warrant asylum protection. The primary job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. In 2023, Customs and Border Patrol had 3,201,144 encounters with illegal immigrants. A serious concern is the lack of vetting of illegal immigrants in the United States. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens stated on X (Twitter) that his agents arrested an average of 47 individuals every day in 2023 who had “serious criminal histories.” Moreover, those figures only included individuals who have been apprehended. In 2023, 860,000 “gotaways” unlawfully entered the United States. These individuals pose safety concerns since their criminal backgrounds and whereabouts are unknown to law enforcement agencies. Oak Park’s Village Board broke its duty to residents by approving a $1.9 million grant providing various services for immigrants, some of whom may be illegal. The $360,000 allocated toward giving illegal immigrants various legal services is wasteful. The role of the government is to provide public services like police, fire, roads, schools. I don’t recall the village paying for residents’ legal services spent appealing their outrageous property tax bills. Yet Oak Park has no issue doling out money for legal representation to individuals whose first act in the United States may have been a crime.)

I earned professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48. I earned a professional license when I was 32. In terms of buying new cars, how successful have you been compared to your parents? My father did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door 6-cylinder 1967 Chevrolet. Thanks to my outstanding parents, with money I earned, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint when I was 17, a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 when I was 19, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE when I was 20, and a new 1972 Corvette when I was 23.)

One could argue that the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization do little or nothing to defend and advance the Republican Party platform, and especially its individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks.)

LINKEDIN
— Top Tips for Career Advancement in Accounting – Lisa Ingram (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

Appearing at an event aimed at encouraging Republicans to vote early and by mail, a “Bank Your Vote” program she initiated despite criticism from Trump and other GOP leaders that the practice Democrats have used successfully has been littered with fraud, McDaniel made no mention of the former president or her imminent departure as RNC chair. She exhorted a crowd of more than 700 people in a ballroom at the Westin O’Hare hotel in Rosemont to pledge to vote early, avoid an Election Day vote deficit and save the party from the expense of pushing them to vote in the campaign’s final days. “Why bank your vote? We in the party must start utilizing mail-in and early voting,” she said. “Please raise your hand and you will pledge to vote early this election. Everybody, we got to do it.”)

I have always promoted the Republican Party platform in GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and especially the platform’s individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I should write a book about that.)

CNBC
— This is what happens if you don’t pay your taxes on time. Late fees and interest are only the beginning. – Megan DeMatteo and Kelsey Neubauer (COMMENT: I worked for IRS’s Collection Division for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division for 3 years at the GS-13 Step 1-3 levels, currently $115,439-$123,136/year.)
https://www.cnbc.com/select/what-happens-when-you-dont-pay-taxes-on-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Levies and liens Within a few months, you should expect to receive letters from the IRS indicating how much you owe. These may be followed by collection notices or phone calls. Eventually, you may receive a Notice of Intent to Levy, a letter indicating the IRS is prepared to seize your assets to cover the amount due. It can claim your home, car, bank accounts or even a portion of your paycheck. After receiving the Notice of Intent, you have 30 days to pay your balance, appeal the levy or reach an agreement with the IRS before further action is taken. If you don’t pay within 10 days of receiving the notice, the failure-to-pay penalty increases to 1% per month. If you owe the IRS $10,000 or more, a lien may be placed on your home. According to the IRS website, “a lien is a legal claim against your property to secure payment of your tax debt, while a levy actually takes the property to satisfy the tax debt.” The IRS will file a Notice of Federal Tax Lien “to alert creditors that the government has a legal right to your property.” This may limit your ability to get credit, including refinancing your mortgage. If you sell your home, the IRS may claim a portion or all of the proceeds. Even declaring bankruptcy may not remove a tax lien. Other consequences for not paying taxes If you still have not settled your account, the State Department may eventually refuse to issue or renew your passport. If you have a “seriously delinquent tax debt” (considered $62,000 or more) your passport may even be revoked. The IRS has 10 years to collect unpaid taxes. While tax evasion and tax fraud are jailable offenses, you won’t go to prison for not having enough money to pay your tax bill. That’s why filing a return, even if you don’t include full payment, is important. How to pay your taxes over time If you’re concerned your tax bill may be steep, you can set up an installment plan with the IRS. These payment plans include interest and a non-payment penalty of up to 25% of the balance due. You can also apply for an offer in compromise (OIC), which is a request for the IRS to settle your tax bill for less than the amount that you owe. They’re not commonly approved — only about a third of OICs were accepted in 2022 — but the IRS will consider your income, expenses and other factors when reviewing your request.)

https://www.newsweek.com/2024/02/16/americans-being-priced-out-their-love-affair-cars-1866374.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For decades, car ownership has been a trademark of the American lifestyle, with vehicles becoming symbols of freedom, independence and even rebellion, as well as a necessity. . .Just 10 percent of new car listings are currently priced below $30,000, according to CoPilot. Things are not much better in the used car market, where only 28 percent of listings are currently priced below $20,000. According to an October report by Market Watch, Americans needed an annual income of at least $100,000 to afford a car, at least if they’re following standard budgeting advice, which says you shouldn’t spend more than 10 percent of your monthly income on car-related expenses. That means that more than 60 percent of American households cannot afford to buy a new car, based on Census data. For individuals, the numbers are even worse, with 82 percent of people below the $100,000 line.)

https://www.aol.com/news/republican-party-texas-censures-speaker-232924174.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Republican Party of Texas has announced they’ve officially censured Representative Dade Phelan on Saturday, according to a release. Officials said they will be “imposing the full set of penalties allowed by the rules, for lack of fidelity to Republican principles and priorities.” According to a release, rule 44 of the Republican Party of Texas allows the party to censure elected officials who violate Republican Party of Texas principles and priorities three times or more in a given biennium. The censure of Phelan details five such instances on issues such as the impeachment of Ken Paxton, Democrat Committee Chairs, border security, and educational freedom. The release stated that the original censure resolution was passed by the Jasper County Republican Party with at least two-thirds support and required a three-fifths vote to pass the 64-member State Republican Executive Committee. The final vote was 55 in favor, four opposed, and four abstentions. . .Phelan is now the four elected official in the history of the Republican Party of Texas to be censured utilizing the Rule 44 censure option.)

FAST COMPANY
— What to do when your counteroffer is better than your new job offer. Some experts say that you should never accept a counteroffer. But what happens when the terms are just too good? – ANISA PURBASARI HORTON (COMMENT: In 1980, when I was a 31-year-old IRS employee, of course, when the Democrats who ran GAO offered me a transfer, the Democrats who ran IRS did not make me a counteroffer. But my IRS supervisor did decry the president that the transfer established. I had to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer. Constructively, a) that rendered my having worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at GS-12 Step1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year in today’s dollars WORTHLESS, b) that rendered my having passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 WORTHLESS, and c) that rendered my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976 WORTHLESS.)

More than 24,000 Chinese migrants crossed US borders illegally in 2023, compared to just 342 in 2021 – making them the fastest growing illegal entries. DailyMail.com can now reveal that border chiefs warned the homeland security committee last year that they were concerned they could be letting in CCP spies. Meanwhile, startling data has revealed that more illegal Chinese migrants are granted asylum than any other nationality, raising concerns that more will follow. – MILES DILWORTH

ILLINOIS NEWS BUREAU
— Whether a racial minority or majority at their school, white teachers struggle with race relations – AMBY SHARITA FORREST (COMMENT: During the almost 3 years that I worked for the Post Office, almost 9 years for GAO, and almost 18 years for GAO, I worked for, worked with, and supervised many Blacks.)
https://news.illinois.edu/view/6367/920500785
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a study of white teachers’ sense of belongingness at their schools, education professor Jennifer L. Nelson found that these teachers were often ill-equipped for discussions about racial issues with Black colleagues and students because they had little prior experience thinking about or confronting race in their family, educational and previous work environments. White workers’ emotions about race and reactions to racial differences in the workplace are triggered by identity threat-induced culture shock, researchers suggest in a new study. White teachers who worked at a school where the faculty was majority Black felt shocked, rejected, uncomfortable and anxious when racial discussions arose and their racial or professional identities were challenged, the researchers found. When triggered by feeling different – regardless of whether they were a racial minority or majority in their workplace –white teachers responded by practicing social avoidance, shunning intergroup relations and ducking conversations about race. “Most of the white teachers in our sample hailed from racially segregated social worlds – attending predominantly white high schools and universities” that left them unprepared to handle race relations in their workplace, said first author Jennifer L. Nelson, a professor of education policy, organization and leadership at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, who co-wrote the study with Tiffany D. Johnson, a business professor at Georgia Institute of Technology.)

— Illinois GOP Ignores Will of the People, Pushes Anti-Trump Agenda – Mark Vargas
https://www.newsmax.com/markvargas/illinois-gop-anti-trump/2024/01/31/id/1151718/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So back in Illinois: What’s the current position of the state Republican Party? According to the embattled state party chairman Don Tracy, the party will remain “neutral” during this primary season. In other words, they want to wait it out. It’s too early and there’s not enough data to make any predictions just yet. But again, this should come as no surprise. During the 2020 presidential primary, it was reported that owners in Tracy’s family-owned business — where he is an owner — donated $6,193 to Biden’s campaign. In 2018, owners made only a $250 donation to Trump. But it was only a year ago when Tracy wanted to reevaluate the state party’s so-called “neutrality” policy after a Trump-endorsed conservative grassroots Republican defeated the state party’s preferred establishment-backed candidate for governor in the 2022 Illinois Republican primary by 43 points. Tracy then blamed the Trump-endorsed candidate for all of the 2022 statewide midterm election losses — a move that angered the powerful and influential grassroots base of the party. And last spring key Illinois GOP party leaders, including national committeeman Richard Porter — a close friend and adviser to Tracy and Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel — endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the presidential primary. During Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair this past August, Porter was interviewed by the Chicago Tribune where on-record, he repeated a line often used by the Democrats and said that Trump was running for president simply to avoid going to jail. After both the Chicago Tribune and Illinois Review reported on his on-the-record comments, Porter was in panic mode. Realizing that his inner monologue was now public record, he offered a long, meandering follow-up statement to try and clarify his statement. But the damage was already done. But none of this is accidental and multiple sources in Illinois confirm that Illinois Republican Party leaders are playing the “neutral” card because they are holding out hope that one of Trump’s 91 criminal charges — 44 federal and 47 state — will stick and he will be jailed before the Republican National Convention in August, leaving Haley or DeSantis as the Republican nominee for president who will face Biden in November. State party leaders will emphatically and publicly deny that this is the strategy, but this is the truth. And it’s the only reason that explains why they are remaining selectively neutral this presidential primary season — for fear of angering DeSantis or Haley by coming out so quickly in support of Trump. But the pattern is clear. Last March, the Illinois Republican Party hosted a fundraiser that featured former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, who served as attorney general under Trump. Barr frequently attacks Trump in media interviews and says the GOP presidential front-runner is destroying the Republican Party. And who served on the host committee? Tracy and Porter. And when former President Trump visited southern Illinois in June 2022, none of the state party leaders, including Tracy and Porter bothered to show up. That’s right: The 45th president of the United States of America and the leader of the national party shows up in your backyard, and the state Republican party leaders decide to skip the party. It’s no wonder Democrats control every lever in the state — the establishment, anti-Trump Republicans within the state party allow it.)

I would focus on the on the many/big adverse actions that my Democrat Post Office (1966-1969), IRS (1971-1980) and GAO (1980-1997) superiors succeeded in getting my many Jewish superiors and supervisors to take against me. Those adverse actions include forcing me to resign in 1969, disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, disallowing my education expenses in 1978, forcing me to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, never promoting me beyond GS-13, always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. I would also focus on Money Magazine’s 4-page February 1978 article on me.)

SLASH GEAR
— Ford 10-Speed Transmission: The Most Common Problems – PRARTHANA GOPAL (COMMENT: I am one of the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against Ford over this transmission. I represent Mustang owners in Illinois. SEE: https://dockets.justia.com/docket/illinois/ilndce/1:2023cv04130/435016 The lawsuit has since been transferred to Massachusetts.)
https://www.slashgear.com/1490143/ford-10-speed-transmission-common-problems/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2017, Ford debuted the 10R80 transmission, which it had developed in collaboration with General Motors. The new transmission was first introduced in Ford F-150 trucks, but it soon became a mainstay in other models like the Mustang, Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, and Ranger, among others. The 10R80 was designed to provide more power and fuel efficiency, allowing drivers to experience a more responsive and nimble handling experience. That said, problems soon began to surface with the 10-speed automatic transmission. Owners of Ford passenger vehicles experienced various issues, ranging from jerky driving to delayed gear shifting and more. Over time, consistent problems with the transmission system led to multiple consumer complaints and even lawsuits against Ford. Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission has made an appearance in several Ford vehicles over the years, but it has also become the subject of multiple lawsuits. Plaintiffs have repeatedly alleged that the 10R80 transmission is defective. Some have also claimed that the auto manufacturer has known about this problem since 2018. A lawsuit, filed with the Massachusetts State Court on April 18, 2023, stated: “A common design and/or manufacturing defect in Ford’s 10R80 transmissions is a potentially life-threatening safety issue, and Ford has refused to recall or replace the defective Transmissions.” . . . Ford, on the other hand, refuted several of these allegations, asserting that the plaintiffs didn’t seek prompt servicing for their vehicles. Ford also pointed out that the complainants continued to use their cars despite these issues surfacing — a fact that could negate the severity of the claims. . .One of the most common issues that people have experienced with Ford vehicles that used the 10R80 transmission was the “sluggish” pace of gear changes. Some drivers also allegedly experienced violent and sudden shifts from one gear to the other.)
