— Bailey: ‘To come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639054534-bailey-to-come-here-into-illinois-and-to-add-the-foid-card-and-to-continue-to-add-these-restrictions-that-s-an-infringement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Sen. Darren Bailey is among the growing list of lawmakers to come out against new legislation. According to KSKD, DuPage County Sheriff Jim Mendrick, the top law enforcement officer in the state’s second-largest county, is also among law enforcement officials who have declared they will not be enforcing the law, branding it as facing “a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” In a recent Facebook post, Bailey expressed that background checks for firearms make sense. However, additional restrictions are not necessary. “We can say, alright, ‘Shall not be infringed,’ but yet we understand that sometimes these guns fall into the hands of the wrong person. So we have the federal, you know, firearm background check. That’s exactly what it does, and I don’t see anyone arguing that. But to come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement,” Bailey said in a Facebook post. Illinois state residents will be informed further on the new law for firearms once it is fully enforced. Under the terms of the new law, residents will be allowed to keep guns they have already purchased or obtained, along with newly relocated residents being eligible to apply for a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card within 60 days of making the state their new home. Illinois State Police are writing new administrative rules to explain how to enforce the assault weapons ban, with The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) being the final voice in determining what rules are officially adopted before state police eventually circulate them to other law enforcement agencies across the state.)

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE
— FAQS: QUESTION: Do Illinois residents have to register their AR or assault weapons as defined by the new law? ANSWER: Yes. In the coming months, more detailed information will be made available on how to register the firearm. At this time, you cannot submit an affidavit for registration. The endorsement affidavit will be available by October 1, 2023 and must be signed under oath and submitted to the ISP prior to January 1, 2024.

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— DuPage County sheriff says he is not changing stance on enforcing the gun ban – Andrew Hensel (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969), while I did increasingly object to their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination, I never even came close to even hinting that I would not enforce their Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) requirements. In fact, I enforced their AA and DEI requirements big time. To comply with their AA and DEI requirements, I gave tremendous preference to my subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, disabled, non-Christion, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. Most of my subordinates were most of the aforesaid. But my aforesaid tremendous preference giving was still not enough for my Democrat superiors. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would focus on the tremendous preference that I gave my Black GAO CPA subordinate who my Democrat GAO superiors gave my job and my preferred corner office to after they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Cook County’s financial divide is a local example of how policies favor the rich. What happens during the budget standoff in Congress could determine whether it becomes harder for average Americans to build wealth and pay their bills.” Where did you build your wealth and how did the policies there help you do that? I worked in Cook County 1964-1997. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 washing dishes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline. I worked in Flossmoor in 1966 cleaning golf shoes. I worked in Park Forest 1966-1969 delivering mail. I worked in Chicago Heights 1970-1972 selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances and pumping gasoline. I worked in downtown Chicago in 1971 and 1973-1980 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in Harvey 1972-1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked at 63rd and Halsted in Chicago in 1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in downtown Chicago auditing federal agencies 1980-1997. I lived in downtown Chicago part-time 1974-1976 and full-time 1976-1978. In 1978, I got married. My wife and I used her savings for the downpayment on a home in Wheaton, I sold my one bedroom Outer Drive East condo for $61,000, and with the $10,000 gain, I bought a new 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale for $6,000 and a new 1978 Chevrolet Chevette for $4,000 in Glen Ellyn. My wife worked in Cook County 1968-2003 and 2014-2017.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Survey pushes for greater focus on teacher recruitment and retention amid shortages.” The Democrats who ran GAO, IRS, and the Post Office in 1980, 1971, and 1966 respectively, hired me because I was qualified for the jobs and they could not find qualified Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, or young people who would take the jobs. I had a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, and d) earned a high school diploma in 1966. By 1980, I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. By 1971, I had worked for Firestone Stores for 10 months. I had passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970. I had passed the Post Office employment examination in 1966.

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/burr-ridge-enforce-new-gun-law-officials
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But he said officers called onto private property for unrelated matters would take action if unregistered weapons are in view. “I have been asked if this bill is a violation of the Constitution. That’s for the courts to decide,” Madden said. Mayor Gary Grasso agreed with the chief’s approach. “The point being is that the village will not turn a blind eye to the necessary enforcement of this law,” the mayor said. “Like all laws, the chief and officers will enforce them.” He said he wanted to make it clear where the village stands on the issue. “We follow the law and will let the courts decide on the propriety of the law,” Grasso said. The law is being challenged in the courts. Under its provisions, residents with “assault” weapons must register them starting Oct. 1. They have until Jan. 1 to do so.)
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Durkin Seat Hopefuls Kept Secret For Now. Parts of La Grange, Western Springs, Burr Ridge and Hinsdale are in the district.” Conservatives fear that another hate-filled conservative-hater will be selected to fill the seat.

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/durkin-seat-hopefuls-kept-secret-now
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two Republicans have applied for the state House seat left vacant by Rep. Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, a party leader confirmed Thursday. But the leader declined to release the names. In a message to Patch, DuPage County Republican Party Chairman Jim Zay said the selection committee plans to meet Thursday night about the candidates for 82nd District state representative. He said the names would not be released until after that meeting, saying the committee would need to talk to all its members about it. Both Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso and Willow Springs Village President Melissa Neddermeyer have confirmed to Patch that they did not apply. Democrats and Republicans have no legal requirement to disclose the names of candidates who apply for legislative posts left vacant by party members. In fact, the parties have been known to keep the information under wraps. The 82nd District includes all or parts of Western Springs, La Grange, Hinsdale and Burr Ridge, among other towns. Durkin, who resigned last month, was the House Republican leader. In Illinois, a state representative’s district consists of about 105,000 people. Republicans plan to hold a public meeting involving interviews of “select” candidates, according to a party news release. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the House Republican Organization office at 16W281 83rd St., Suite D, in Burr Ridge. Interested Republicans must have lived in the district for the last two years. For more information, call 217-553-7743 or email jaymesiemer@gmail.com.)

— Stop calling semi-automatic rifles assault rifles – Patrick Donlea, Crystal Lake
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/29/letter-stop-calling-semi-automatic-rifles-assault-rifles/
(FROM THE LETTER: I understand many people use hyperbole to make their arguments sound more compelling. That being said, we have to stop calling any semi-automatic rifle designed and sold for civilian and police use an “assault rifle.” An assault rifle is a specific tool designed for and used by the military. Because of this, it should not be available for civilian or civil police use. The assault rifle is distinguished from the standard battle rifle by three primary characteristics that make it easier to use in close quarters, such as urban or jungle fighting. These characteristics are: 1. It’s comparatively short and light. 2.
It fires a less powerful, and, therefore lighter, round bullet. 3. It has a selective fire switch which allows it to shoot in either semi-automatic or fully automatic mode, such as firing three shot bursts as a third option. The last of these characteristics makes it a type of machine gun. This puts the assault rifle under the registration requirements of the National Firearms Act (NFA). It should be noted that Illinois law has already prohibited the possession of all NFA weapons, specifically machine guns, by Illinois residents since 1961 (720 ILCS 5/24). So, please stop calling a semi-automatic rifle a machine gun or assault rifle when discussing current gun laws. For the past 62 years, it has been illegal to own assault rifles in Illinois.)

Equip yourself with the tools to enjoy early retirement. – Rachel Hartman (COMMENT: Because my Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those who ancestors had been America for a long time and who they had not promote to Senior Executive Service, currently $183,500/year by age 40, I planned on retiring as soon I became eligible for regular retirement in 2003 when I would be 55. But they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. Consequently my Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension is significantly less. My CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old.)

FORBES
— America Needs To Improve How It Treats Its Older Workers – Teresa Ghilarducci
https://www.forbes.com/sites/teresaghilarducci/2023/01/28/how-america-treats-its-older-workers-new-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Involuntary Retirement It is hard for older workers to keep a job, as Urban Institute’s Richard W. Johnson showed the economists gathered there. Older workers do worse under conditions of layoffs and business closures. Job-finding is easier for workers under 50 who get displaced from a job — more than 70% of displaced workers under 50 typically find new work within three years of their job loss. For workers 55-61, however, that number falls to 59%. Among those who can start claiming Social Security, at ages 62 and older the reemployment rate falls to just 38%. So they claim early Social Security benefits at reduced monthly benefits or they start bidding down and take jobs that are worse than their previous ones. Early retirement is an all-too-common last resort, and involuntary retirements increase the risk of depression and downward mobility. Labor market scarring is another effect of job loss beyond the pain of unemployment. Scarring refers to the earnings losses experienced by displaced workers who do manage to find work again. Once again, things get worse as you move up in age. Re-employed displaced workers, age 55-61, earn 22% less than they did before, a scarring effect that is more than twice as severe as for those in their 30s. Weekly earnings are 29% lower for reemployed displaced workers 62 and older.)

HR DRIVE
— COMMENT: Democrats say “6 diversity and inclusion trends to watch in 2023.” (COMMENT: Since I became a federal employee in 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)
https://www.hrdive.com/news/2023-diversity-and-inclusion-trends/641211/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A phenomenon Stamps said she’s been thinking about lately is medical challenges forcing early retirement. “If you’re forced to retire, you’re theoretically less prepared for retirement than the average [person] and you have more debt. That’s more challenging because now you have a sort of fixed income if you’re lucky. Getting any kind of fixed income that you have to depend on kind of perpetuates the racial wealth gap.”)

NASDAQ
— How to Save for Retirement Even When You’re in Your 20s and Broke – Mary Ellen Cagnassola (COMMENT: I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension in 1966 when I was 18 years old and started working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office. I earned full-time CSRS credits even though I worked only part-time. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious about that ever since then. I earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits working for IRS 1971-1980 and almost 18 years of CSRS credits working for GAO 1980-1997. My CSRS pension is dramatically reduced a) because my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors wasted my career and took many adverse actions against me and b) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Nevertheless, my CSRS pension is currently $63,144/year. But my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In addition, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)

ENTREPRENEUR
— Early retirement can cause faster cognitive decline – Amanda Breen (COMMENT: My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. More than anything else, my putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out since 2000 has slowed down my cognitive decline. Since 2005, those newsletters have included links to 449,353 articles.)

— Navy Will Force Retirement on Poor Performing Senior Captains, Commanders – Ben Werner (COMMENT: To “justify” forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors a) gave me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, b) kept me off audits of IRS since 1988, c) always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) assigned me to supervise all their poor performing employees.)

FED SMITH
— The 2023 COLA is the largest in over 40 years. (COMMENT: My Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension increased from $58,101/year to $63,144/year, that is, by $5,043/year, that is, by 8.7%. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious about that. In my defense, my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. To qualify myself for better paying federal jobs, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 years old in 1970, b) I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and d) I earned a job-related professional license in 1981. I ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) what did they do to qualify themselves for better paying jobs and b) why didn’t they become federal employees?)

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

Ever-increasingly, because I was Republican, White, male, and older, the following meant absolutely nothing to them: a) my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) my earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) my becoming a licensed CPA in 1981, e) my becoming Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1996, and f) my earning a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.

In a closed-door session during this week’s RNC meeting, two members working on the party’s 2022 audit debated whether “candidate quality” was to blame for midterm losses.” Ever-increasingly, in deciding which candidates to back in primaries and in nonpartisan races, conservative and Republican organizations give more and more and more weight to candidate demographics instead of candidate quadfurcations. Ever-increasingly, they give more and more and more preference to candidates who are minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about how conservative and Republican organizations have ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: a) GAO Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year, b) IRS Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year, c) I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, d) I became a licensed CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, and e) I earned an MBA from Loyola, master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. I should write a book about how the following ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. They would not have done that if I had been a minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or if my ancestors had not been in America for a long time.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Student loan forgiveness: Here’s the number of eligible borrowers who applied by US state.” In Illinois, the number of borrowers who applied or were automatically deemed eligible is 1,044,000. Did you get a student loan? I did not. First off, I doubt that I could have gotten a student loan. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of Crete-Monee High School class of 1966. My ACT was only 24. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My GPA and ACT would have been much higher if I had not washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights every evening Monday through Thursday during my junior and senior years and full-time during the summer in between. But if I had gotten a student loan, my GPA at UIC and at NIU would have been much higher and I would have majored in accounting instead of management. While I took classes at UIC 1966-1969 and at NIU 1969-1970, I worked as many hours as I possibly could for the Park Forest Post Office. Far too many times, I skipped classes on Mondays and on Fridays to work more hours.

UNITED STATE COAST GUARD
— How to spot and report retaliation – Arcady Darter (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat Post office superiors retaliated against me by disallowing my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forcing me to resign in 1969. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated against me by a) forcing me to take the aforesaid pay cut to transfer, b) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) not promoting me to GS-14, e) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 years 1986-1988, f) forcing the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, g) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Retaliation increased significantly after I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)
https://www.mycg.uscg.mil/News/Article/3271731/how-to-spot-and-report-retaliation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Workplace retaliation can take many forms and it is important for employees to understand how to identify retaliation and the ways to report it. But how does one determine if an action is retaliatory? 3 Elements of retaliation  Retaliation occurs when an employer takes actions or negative behaviors against an employee for engaging in legally protected Equal Employment Opportunity/Equal Opportunity (EEO/EO) activity such as reporting discrimination and harassment or participating in an investigation of harassment. Let’s break down the components of retaliation: First, for an employee or applicant to file a complaint on the basis of retaliation, they must have engaged in a protected activity. This means that the employee asserted their rights by filing an EEO/EO complaint, being a witness to an EEO/EO complaint, or simply contacting the Civil Rights Directorate for information regarding the complaint process. Pointing out exclusionary hiring practices, resisting sexual advances, or intervening to protect others from harassment or discrimination are also examples of protected activities. The second element of a retaliation claim is that after engaging in a protected activity, the employee or applicant suffers an unfavorable action from their employer. For instance, adverse actions can include being fired, being passed over for a promotion, or receiving low-performance reviews after speaking out and engaging in a protected activity. The final element of a retaliation claim is that there is a connection and evidence that shows the adverse action was taken because of the protected activity. This means that the employees’ participation in protected activity motivated the employer’s adverse action or behaviors.)

— Toward Resolving IRS Staffing Shortages. Insights from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. – Kathryn Simms, Yiwen Li, and Robert A. Warren (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://www.cpajournal.com/2023/01/25/toward-resolving-irs-staffing-shortages/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A total of 31,457 IRS employees completed the 2019 FEVS. Of those respondents, 38.5% were males and 61.5% were females; 67% were white; 21% were African American, and 12% were of other races. Nearly 15% were Millennials or Zoomers. Responses were weighted to provide a representative sample. These demographic characteristics were quite similar for IRS participants in the 2020 and 2021 FEVS.)

My outstanding parents encouraged me to play by the rules. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970) and three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997). I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I saved for my retirement.)

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

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

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

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

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

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a lengthy statement released on Monday, Mendrick again criticized the new law as “poorly written” and for having “no clear direction on who will be enforcing new gun laws.” He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in the statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns.”)

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

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In an interview with the Chicago Tribune last week, Mendrick said he planned on staying out of the statewide outcry among other sheriffs about the new law but said the concerns he heard from his own deputies and regular citizens were too much to ignore. “The first couple of days, I was actually trying to call people back personally. But everyone would keep me on the phone for 30, 40 minutes apiece. Every citizen I talked to wanted to vent on all of this stuff,” said Mendrick. “The way the law was released scared society. I know it wasn’t the intent. But it did. It scared everybody who owns guns.” “Gun owners, lawful gun owners, this makes them feel that their rights are being infringed upon, that this is just the beginning,” said Mendrick. “How much further will it go after this?” He said he tries to “comply with everything I can” but believes the new law, as written, is incomplete. While the ban says that current owners of high-capacity magazines are required to register them with the Illinois State Police by April and high-powered weapons by Jan. 1, Mendrick is concerned over whether he’ll have the police resources to enforce the law. “If you’re expecting us to be the arm of this, how? Tell me where I get the people,” he said. . .In a follow-up statement after the news conference, Mendrick said the law is poorly written and has no clear direction as to who will be enforcing it. He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in the statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation.

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20230123/were-not-going-to-let-this-die-push-for-dupage-sheriff-to-retract-weapons-ban-statement-grows
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier this month, Mendrick issued a statement that said he believed the state’s new ban on high-powered guns and high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. “Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for DuPage County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the state, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with noncompliance of this Act,” Mendrick’s statement reads. . .”There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in a written statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. “They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns,” he said. Mendrick, who had previously suggested he believed compliance checks would be tied to the law, also took note that lawmakers on Monday said they would not be asking officers to go door to door to ensure weapons were legally registered. “That is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” his statement read. . .In his statement Monday, Mendrick, a Republican, said it was “disheartening” to hear Stava-Murray suggest he would not enforce the law when he has said he would enforce the weapons ban when it involves other illegal activity. “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation,” Mendrick said. . .During a nearly hourlong interview over the weekend on AM-560’s “Black and Right” radio program, Mendrick was critical of the weapons ban, claiming sheriffs were not consulted in drafting the new law. Mendrick also questioned what happens after Jan. 1, 2024, the deadline for gun owners to register weapons. Though state lawmakers Monday said they would not seek door-to-door compliance checks, Mendrick said a Jan. 16 conversation with Casten suggested otherwise. The sheriff said Casten suggested that if police officers would go to the door of a home filled with Molotov cocktails, then Mendrick “should be fine going to the doors of people’s homes for the new gun laws.” “That reinforced my belief that we were going to be saddled with a manpower challenge that would be insurmountable, to say the least,” Mendrick said Monday. . .”If we go to doors to check for lawful gun owners, we won’t be available to answer 911 calls anymore,” Mendrick said during the radio program, adding that he would need to send three officers to a home to check for weapons. He also noted he is down 30 deputies and has gone from having 18 deputies on each shift to 11.)

PRAIRIE STATE WIRE
— Lawmakers eyeing bill to mandate race-based, anti-white reading: ‘The reading list will dominate the curriculum’ (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, to send your child to a public school is make your child a sexually active LGBTQer who is anti-parent, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-heterosexual, anti-financial success, anti-homeownership, anti-gun ownership, anti-Christian, anti-Protestant, anti-Italian American, anti-German American, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://prairiestatewire.com/stories/638905763-lawmakers-eyeing-bill-to-mandate-race-based-anti-white-reading-the-reading-list-will-dominate-the-curriculum
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A number of anti-white titles stick out amongst the scores of books lawmakers are suggesting should be mandatory reading for the state’s children. That is the concept behind a list of books lawmakers are pushing on the state’s children through HB1011. The bill is sponsored by State Rep. Mary E. Flowers (D-Chicago). Nonfiction books children will be required to read include the below: . . . Despite its place atop the New York Times list of best-selling books “White Fragility” was slammed by reviewer Carlos Lozada in the Washington Post for presenting a flawed view of race relations in the United States. “The book flattens people of any ancestry into two-dimensional beings fitting predetermined narratives,” Lozada wrote. In Lozada’s view, the book appears to be a continuation of the spirit of racism rather than conciliatory in nature. “White people should be regarded not as individuals but as an undifferentiated racist collective, socialized to ‘fundamentally hate blackness’ and to institutionalize that prejudice in politics and culture. People of color, by contrast, are almost entirely powerless, and the few with influence do not wield it in the service of racial justice,” Lozada wrote of the book’s conceit. Other titles on the list have garnered similar reactions. A similar bill was introduced in the previous General Assembly but failed to gain any traction. In the last go-round critics excoriated lawmakers for placing themselves in the classroom, bypassing teachers and the individual learning goals of children. The sheer volume of reading mandated by the bill would be problematic in that it would edge out other non-biased reading already ingrained in learning plans. “(The list) outlines a highly skewed 42-book list of mandatory reading for every public elementary, middle and high school student, and includes titles such as ‘Hood Feminism,’ ‘How to Be an Antiracist’ and ‘White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism,'” Beth Feeley wrote in a 2021 column for the Chicago Tribune. “Not every book on this list reflects the critical race theory-inspired ideologies like those of included authors Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. But 42 books — almost 10,000 pages — on race? The reading list will dominate the curriculum.” Similarly, opponents point to the “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading” standards lawmakers enacted in 2021 as a flashpoint for pushing leftist narratives in classrooms. Critics say the original language included in that bill suggested teachers indoctrinate students to “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives that leverage asset thinking toward traditionally marginalized populations.”)

HIGHLAND COUNTY PRESS
— COMMENT: I should write an article that compares and contrasts Biden’s ownership of his 1967 Corvette and my ownership of my 1972 Corvette which I continue to own. It has only 5,147 miles on it and is stock and like new. I have driven it extremely few miles since I started spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. It is base coupe, Steel Cities Gray, black leather interior, automatic, air conditioning, power steering, and AM-FM stereo radio. I bought it new in 1971 with insurance proceeds from the theft of my 1969 Dodge Charger SE and a bank loan. I bought that Charger with money that I had earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office while I attended UIC in 1968. I got the car loan because I had worked for IRS for 4 months, I had worked for the Chicago Heights Firestone Store part-time for 7 months and full time for 7 months before that. I stored it in my mother’s garage in Crete 1971-1984. A picture of me in the car in that garage is in Money Magazine’s 4-page February 1978 article on me. Since 1984, I have stored it in my fully insulated heated attached garage in Wheaton. Since 1995, I have stored it on a hydraulic lift in that garage. Currently my 2005 Corvette is stored underneath it. I have two security cameras pointing down the garage’s driveway.
https://highlandcountypress.com/Content/Opinions/Opinion/Article/Biden-Trump-and-the-pesky-presidential-records-act/4/22/87297
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He loves talking about what is in his garage, specifically the stock 1967 Corvette with the mighty 327-V8 that churns out 350 horsepower at the wheel and flies from 0-60mph in a respectable 5.9 seconds. Even now, after more than a half-century, the Stingray remains mint. Its paint, pristine. The color from the manufacturer, President Biden makes a point of noting in interviews, is “Goodwood Green,” and it still looks just like the day it rolled off the assembly line because the motorhead obsesses over every inch of the car, a wedding present from his father. Joe Biden loves that car so much that he overshares, making his people cringe. As vice president, he once admitted to Car and Driver Magazine that he still strips down to “my bathing suit in my driveway” to wash and wax it. He was 69 years old at the time. Other things on the floor of his garage, like documents marked “classified,” the president and his aides would rather not discuss in detail. Eight different times this week, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters she just was “not going to get into specifics” about how or why or exactly when sensitive intelligence documents made their way into the Biden family home in Wilmington, Del. “It’s not like they’re sitting out in the street,” Biden protested when asked about the documents that only individuals with security clearances are supposed to view. The intelligence and the classic car, he confirmed, were behind closed doors. His garage, it has a lock.)

FORBES
— The Importance Of Finding A Mentor – Jason Richmond
https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusinesscouncil/2023/01/20/the-importance-of-finding-a-mentor/

COMMENT: Have your critics/opponents gotten rid of your mentors?

I should write a book about what my IRS career might have been if my Democrat IRS superiors had not gotten rid of the IRS manager who had a) promoted me in 1972 and 1973, b) gotten me assigned to a high-profile developmental opportunity in 1973, and c) promoted me in 1974.

But then, to get rid of me, they a) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forced the aforesaid IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975, c) ignored, dismissed, downplayed, and belittled my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, d) never promoted me to GS-13, e) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and f) ignored, dismissed, downplayed, and belittled my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979.

I should write a book about what my GAO career might have been if my Democrat GAO superiors had not gotten rid of the GAO manager who had a) arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980 when I was 31 years old, b) gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and c) promoted me in 1986.

In 1980, he was the Staff Manager of GAO’s Chicago Office.

But immediately after he arranged for my transfer from IRS, my Democrat GAO Chicago Office superiors replaced him with a Democrat Staff Manager who was anti-IRS, anti-union, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-Christian, anti-Protestant, anti-German America, anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, anti-those who did not start their career with GAO, anti-Association of Government Accountants, anti-Institute of Internal Auditors, and anti-those who spouse’s had good jobs. He was a heavy drinker and gambler who was obsessed with spectator sports and golf.

He did everything that he could to get me to go back to IRS.

He succeeded in a) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, b) assigning me to work for, work with, and/or supervise GAO Chicago office employees who disapproved of, if not despised, if not hated my demographics for my entire GAO career, c) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals for my entire GAO career, d) assigning me to supervise all the office’s Democrat employees who were problematic, liberal, minority, female, veteran, disabled, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time for my entire GAO career, e) turning my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me for my entire GAO career, f) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and g) stopping me from ever being promoted beyond GS-13.

If he had not gone on extended sick leave because of his heavy drinking in 1985, I never would have been assigned to audits or promoted to GS-13.

But after he came back in 1987, he succeed in a) forcing the aforesaid GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for transfer from IRS in 1980, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986, b) always ranking me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and c) helping my Democrat GAO superiors force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997.

Further, I should write a book about my past and present critics/opponents and my past and present supporters who they destroyed because they encouraged me to become a) an Assistant Republican Precinct Committeeman (RPC) in 1999, b) an appointed RPC 1999, c) an elected RPC since 2000, d) Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster in 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, e) MTRO Octoberfest Committee member in 2001- 2009, f) Wheaton Park District Prairie Path Park adopter in 2001-2020, g) American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004, e) coordinator of Pat O/Malley’s 2002 gubernatorial primary campaign in Milton Township in 2002, f) Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, g) Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, h) Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day Parades 2005-2019, i) TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, and j) an Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee member in 2008.

— IL GOP Attacks Illinois Review Over Postage Discount, Says GOP “Strictly Neutral” During Governor Primary
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2023/01/il-gop-attacks-illinois-review-over-postage-discount-says-gop-strictly-neutral-during-governor-primary.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives, 3rd District, had attended the July meeting with Tracy and is heard on the audio recording voicing her outrage to the IL GOP’s gifting the Irvin campaign of its postage discount, calling it a “tacit endorsement” of Irvin. Ives had endorsed conservative candidate Darren Bailey for governor. In response to Ives’ comments, Tracy told Ives that as a new State Central Committee (SCC) member, she could take it up at the next SCC meeting. Following Illinois Review’s call for the Inspector General of the United States Postal Service to audit the IL GOP, Tracy formed a new committee to draft policies for usage of the postal discount – as no such policies existed before – and not surprisingly, Tracy directed that Ives be placed on that committee.)

— Asylum theater on the southern border – Conn Carroll
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/asylum-theater-on-the-southern-border
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now, what’s going on is that all of these people who are entering the country across the border, who are being taken into custody, they are stating, effectively, a fear of harm if returned to their home countries. And by doing that, they really slam the brakes on the detention and deportation process, particularly the deportation process. At this point, with so many people coming in, the government doesn’t even have the ability to screen those fear claims. They’re just basically giving them a court date and appointment where a judge will then hear those claims and make an initial determination. Now, when the Border Patrol gets so overwhelmed that they can’t even complete that process, they are literally giving people a piece of paper saying to basically self-report to ICE in their destination city in the United States. And so they’ve done this on a large scale over the past two years. . .The activist base of the Democratic Party has completely overrun whatever “moderate figures who had experience at DHS” were in Biden’s White House. These hardcore immigration activists have successfully dismantled all of former President Donald Trump’s border enforcement policies, thus allowing economic migrants from poor but perfectly safe countries to enter our country and stay forever, even though very, very few of them are ever actually granted asylum. Until we elect a president who is committed to shutting down “asylum theater” by closing the asylum loophole, as Trump did with his “Remain in Mexico” policy, the situation at the southern border is only going to get worse.)

During my freshman and sophomore years in high school, my plan was to take college preparatory courses, to enlist, and to use the G.I. Bill to get a college degree. But then, I changed my plan because a) one of my classmates pointed out to me that my grades put me in the upper 20% of my class and he urged me to consider going straight to college and b) one of my nearby neighbors in Crete got accepted by UIC and started commuting to classes there. My new plan was to get accepted by UIC and to commute to classes there from my parents’ home. I bought a 1958 Chevrolet BelAir. I got a job washing dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights. I got an ACT score of 24. I got accepted by UIC. I used the money I earned washing dishes to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966. I used that car to get to/from jobs and to/from classes at UIC until late 1967 when sold it and bought a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442.)

CPA ADVISOR
— COMMENT: Democrats say “How to Grow Expertise, Build a Stronger Career.” IRS encourages its professional employees to take graduate business, accounting, and law courses. Nevertheless, my Democrat IRS superiors falsely, outrageously, disgustingly, and unethically argued that I took graduate business courses at Loyola and then graduate accounting courses at DePaul to get a job in the private sector and/or to qualify myself for a “new trade or business” and NOT to maintain or improve my IRS job skills. Without evidence, constructively, they charged me with submitting false admission applications to Loyola in 1972 and to DePaul in 1976. Further, notwithstanding the fact that IRS encourages its professional employees to take such courses, they falsely, outrageously, disgustingly, and unethically argued that the courses were not related to my IRS job duties, did not maintain or improve my IRS job skills, and were a distraction.

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

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

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

I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 when I was 27 years old. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997. I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/scotthogenson/2023/01/14/the-death-of-merit-n2618106
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America has always been a land of opportunity. That’s because our nation was founded as a meritocracy, the wellspring of excellence. This concept is central to American exceptionalism. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written in a time when almost the entire world was governed by systems of monarchy, absolutism or outright dictatorships that rarely, if ever, recognized individual merit. In this regard, America’s founding was indeed exceptional. Leftists detest America’s meritocracy. The reason is simple: recognizing merit means there will be winners and losers, a fact that motivates all of us to try harder with a belief in and reliance upon oneself. Those who exhibit greater merit – through hard work, resourcefulness, perseverance, innate aptitude and so forth – usually enjoy more success. Meritocracy motivates us to individualism and excellence, and is hardwired into the DNA of the human race. The polar opposite of meritocracy is equality of outcome, which requires the entire society, save for political and cultural elites, to exist at the lowest common denominator. It is the foundation of socialist and communist dictatorships, enforced through violence, because totalitarians know that living life at the lowest common denominator is contrary to human nature and natural law. It is no secret that merit is not now, nor has it ever been, universally recognized. The first lesson my father taught me as a very young child was “life isn’t fair,” and time has proved him correct. But the periodic unfairness of life doesn’t mean meritocracies are bad. To paraphrase Winston Churchill, meritocracies are the worst form of society except for all the others that have been tried.)

I ever-increasingly complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination while I worked for GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and the Post Office 1966-1969.

My Democrat GAO superiors a) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) never promoted me beyond GS-13, c) delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, e) forced the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had promoted me in 1986, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, f) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and g) forced me to take a $21,863/year pay cut in today’s dollars, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors a) never promoted me beyond GS-12, b) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, c) forced the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me in 1974, 1973, and 1972, and d) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974.

None of them lived in slave states. None of them were employers. The men worked in brick factory, were farmers, operated a hardware store, and worked in the office of a chemical plant. The women were homemakers. None of them owned slaves. None of them directly benefitted from slavery. None of them fought for the Confederate Army.

https://abc7chicago.com/illinois-sheriffs-assault-weapons-ban-weapon-bans-2023-gun-laws/12699694/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A growing cadre of sheriffs in the Chicago area – in McHenry, DeKalb, Kane, DuPage, La Salle, Grundy, and Kankakee counties – have publicly written that they will not enforce the Protect Illinois Communities Act, saying it violates the constitutional right to bear arms. . .DuPage County Sheriff Jim Mendrick is among the most recent law enforcement chief to say he and his deputies won’t be checking to make sure legal gun owners have registered their weapons with the state. The sheriff said they won’t be arresting and holding law abiding gun owners in jail for not complying with the law. However, the DuPage County’s Board president publicly disagrees. She led a vote to ban assault weapons across the county after the Fourth of July massacre in Highland Park. “These are folks that are entrusted by the public to enforce the law. They don’t get to choose which laws they enforce. They must enforce what we’ve written into the code — the General Assembly, signed by the governor, and they will do so,” said Governor JB Pritzker. . .As sheriffs in DuPage County, and elsewhere, take sides, the new gun law is nearly guaranteed to be challenged in court.)

That day, the Board voted to support a state ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Illinois Public Act 102-1116 accomplishes those two goals. As Chair of the DuPage County Board, I stand behind the legislation passed to ban assault weapons. As Governor Pritzker has said, ‘You don’t get to choose which laws you comply with in the state of Illinois.’ And I believe, in DuPage County, we should not be playing politics with state laws.” Ever-increasingly, Illinois Democrats erode Second Amendment rights.

— FRONT PAGE: Even a Little Alcohol Can Harm Your Health. Recent research makes it clear that any amount of drinking can be detrimental. – Dana G. Smith (COMMENT: I have never been a drinker. Many, if not most of my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are/were big drinkers. I should write a book about them. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I would focus on my Democrat GAO superior who took the most/biggest adverse actions against me. He forced me to suffer a $21,863/year pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old. He delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13 and stopped me from getting any more promotions. He kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. He always gave me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals. He always turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. He always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. If he had not gone on extended sick leave because of his heavy drinking 1985-1987, he would have succeeded in a) stopping me from being assigned to any audits of IRS in 1986 and b) stopping me from getting promoted to GS-13 in 1986. He disapproved of my demographics, especially that I was conservative, Republican, draft-avoider, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors had been in America since 1844, I lived in Crete 1948-1972, and I lived in Wheaton since 1978. He was especially envious of my wife’s income and her job travel that enabled us to stay at many luxury resorts and visit many national parks 1978-1992. He stressed to my superiors that my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents. He hinted/implied/argued/shouted that we had lied about our wanting to have children and that we were just selfish rich DINKs. He disapproved of my bringing with me when I transferred from IRS almost 12 years of federal seniority and many unused vacation days and sick days. He was especially furious that I got almost 3 years of full-time federal seniority while I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969 part-time. He crowed to me that he had succeeded in getting Congress to end that seniority benefit. He was furious that because of my federal seniority that I earned working for the Post Office and IRS, I got a preferred corner office in 1990 and was eligible to take early retirement in 1993 when I was 45 years old )

In my defense, while I am all of the aforesaid and my ancestors have been in America since 1844, all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois and none of them discriminated against anyone. None of my ancestors attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My grandfather on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWI. My uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII. My father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F. My ancestors who were men worked in a brick factory, were farmers, sold horses, operated a hardware store, and/or worked in the office of a chemical plant. The women were homemakers.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What does the future hold for you? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

From what I see spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out, the more of the following that you are, the more bleak that your future is: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, heterosexual, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German America, and/or if your ancestors have been America for a long time.

Ever-increasingly, the more of the aforesaid that you are, the more that Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs demonize you, denigrate you, and condemn you as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all.

Ever-increasingly, the more of the aforesaid that you are, the less that Republican, conservative, and religious organizations come to your defense.

Ever-increasingly, Democrats are succeeding in replacing those who have demographics that vote for Republicans with those who have demographics that vote for Democrats.

Demographics that vote for Republicans include: conservative, White, male, older, heterosexual, healthy, non-poor, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German America, and/or if your ancestors have been America for a long time.

Demographics that vote for Democrats include: liberal, moderate, minority, female, LGBTQ, disabled, poor, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German America, and/or those whose ancestors have not been America for a long time.

Overwhelmingly, those who are in America illegally have demographics that vote for Democrats. Ever-increasingly, they will vote for Democrats.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative.

How soon will Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs succeed in getting the Republican Party a) to officially dump the following planks in its platform: individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving); b) to officially dump party leaders who support the aforesaid planks; c) to officially dump voters who support the aforesaid planks; and d) to officially dissolve the Republican Party?

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

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

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— House GOP Leader Jim Durkin Resigning, Says Trump Republicans, 2nd Amendment and Pro-Life Issues “Dragged” GOP Down in Midterm Election (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Durkin in glorified and praised by hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters. I should write a book about how since 2000 the leaders of the following have treated conservatives, that is, how they have mistreated conservatives, that is, how they have dumped conservatives: Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many planks in the Republican Party platform.)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2023/01/breaking-house-gop-leader-jim-durkin-resigning-says-trump-republicans-2nd-amendment-and-pro-life-issues-dragged-gop-down-in-midterm-election.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In media interviews after announcing his resignation as House GOP leader, State Rep. Jim Durkin attempted to place all of the blame on the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump. “As long as we continue to say that we are the party of Trump and that we have to abide by the party principles in the platform, 100% we’re gonna continue down this path of losing,” said Durkin. But pointing fingers and blaming others is exactly why Illinois House Republicans are in the super minority – and Durkin has no one else to blame but himself. And blaming the former President does nothing but distract from his own leadership failures. In announcing his resignation on Sunday, Durkin once again began pointing fingers, saying, “I hope that at some point in the near future, and I think we’re getting there, that the party breaks its fever of Donald Trump and understands and learns from the past. Some people will never get there.” But Durkin didn’t just stop there. “So I would just say the sooner that the public realizes that he’s not value added to the Republican Party, we can start looking at what this party used to be about. A party that didn’t insist upon this purity test. A party that is a fiscally conservative first of all, certainly, but we can have a fair and respectful debate within the party on issues related to the Second Amendment, to life and these other social issues, that have been dragging us down in areas that we have to compete in — mainly the suburbs and the collar counties.” To suggest that Second Amendment and pro-life issues are “dragging” the Republican party down is an insult – they are issues that make us Republicans in the first place. In the last week, Illinois Review has published several articles about Durkin using his political influence to target conservative grassroots candidates during the Illinois Primary. Sources also confirmed to Illinois Review that the IL GOP is blaming Durkin for the party’s postage discount abuse, where mailers “Paid for by the Republican Party of Illinois” were sent during the primary to viciously attack conservative Republican grassroots candidates that were challenging Durkin’s friends and political allies. Just a few days ago, Durkin was the only Republican to join the Democrats, voting in favor of the assault weapons ban. The legislation “immediately prohibits the manufacturing, possession, delivery, sales, and purchase of assault weapons” with a few exceptions – if you are a police officer or you are in the military. The Illinois Freedom Caucus sent a late night email urging conservatives to call Democrats and urge them to vote “No,” arguing that the Democrats admitted in committee that they did not consult with gun groups while drafting the legislation – including the Illinois State Rifle Association, who plans on filing a lawsuit when the bill becomes law. Durkin remains a close ally and best friend of IL GOP chairman Don Tracy. During the primary, Durkin was a supporter of Richard Irvin’s Republican campaign for governor, despite Irvin pulling Democratic Primary ballots in 2014, 2016 and 2020.)

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

(FROM THE ARTICLE: He said at the time that while he accepted responsibility for his own mistakes, former President Donald Trump and the Illinois Republican Party’s MAGA wing bear a lot of blame for the party’s troubles. “As long as we continue to say that we are the party of Trump and that we have to abide by the party principles in the platform, 100% we’re gonna continue down this path of losing,” Durkin said. “Whoever succeeds me, we need to do more to not take these strident positions on issues related to firearms, to issues of reproductive health, issues relating to the gay and lesbian community. There are many people who feel very strong about those issues who would vote for Republicans.”)

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

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-jim-durkin-resigning-house-seat-20230108-f6f6lkonprdsnmdlzmz3vhc4im-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: His psychiatric skills, he said, are no longer able to respond to an increasingly rightward Republican Party mindset, fostered by former President Donald Trump and his followers, that threatens to relegate the party to permanent minority status in the state. . .“The politics have changed. The party over the last at least six years has shifted,” he said. “The only way you can win in Illinois is that you’re going to have to just find the candidates that reflect the district. And we should not hold anyone to the 100% (party) purity test that some people in this party expect throughout the state.” . . . Durkin points the blame for the disastrous election results — particularly in the suburbs that were once a cornerstone of Illinois Republicanism — at a statewide GOP ticket led by gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey, a state senator who leaned heavily on his evangelical Christianity in his campaign and who was endorsed by Trump. . . “We had some great (GOP House) candidates in the suburbs and collar counties and they were all painted (by Democrats) with the same brush, as being Trump sympathizers from a party of intolerance and extremists,” he said. “The Trump factor and Jan. 6 is something that’s not going away anytime soon. And that obviously was in many people’s minds when they talked about their fear for democracy.” Durkin said he thinks Republicans in Illinois will not be successful until the party distances itself from Trump and acknowledges both his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and his 2020 election defeat to Democratic President Joe Biden. . .“I hope that at some point in the near future, and I think we’re getting there, that the party breaks its fever of Donald Trump and understands and learns from the past. Some people will never get there,” he said. “So I would just say the sooner that the public realizes that he’s not value added to the Republican Party, we can start looking at what this party used to be about. A party that didn’t insist upon this purity test. A party that is fiscally conservative first of all, certainly, but we can have a fair and respectful debate within the party on issues related to the Second Amendment, to life and these other social issues, that have been dragging us down in areas that we have to compete in — mainly the suburbs and the collar counties,” he said. . .A group of far-right Republican lawmakers known unofficially as the “Eastern Bloc,” of which Bailey was a member, chafed under policies expanding abortion and gay rights and also proposed legislation to make Chicago a separate state. “I can’t run a candidate in the western suburbs who’s going to win who is mirroring what someone says campaigning on in the Deep South,” Durkin said. “I just don’t think we should be promoting the 51st state in the collars and the suburbs when it certainly plays well downstate.” Durkin became friends with the late U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, even serving as his Illinois director in the 2008 presidential campaign against home-state favorite Barack Obama. Durkin said McCain “would have figured a way to avoid” the Republican “mess” that led to the U.S. House taking 15 ballots before electing Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California speaker, and also “would have ensured that on Jan. 6, maybe something different, maybe something could have been averted.” “The John McCain I know would have gone outside of the Capitol and kicked the asses of the insurrectionists and Trump’s as well,” Durkin said. “He’s the statesman that this country needs.” . . .He and Durbin also developed a friendship. . .One of his last legislative votes was as the lone Republican to vote with Democrats to approve a ban on military-style firearms and large-capacity magazines. Durkin, who has long backed various gun control initiatives, said his vote not only represented his district’s beliefs but was a reflection of his years as a prosecutor.)

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

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

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

(The Illinois Freedom Caucus is issuing the following statement on the news current Republican Leader Jim Durkin will be resigning as a state legislator. “Leader Jim Durkin is offering all kinds of excuses as he leaves the General Assembly, but the truth is under his leadership our caucus is at its lowest point in membership in a very long time. Leader Durkin squandered money in the 2022 Primary to secure legislative candidates in open seats who were loyal to him and who were not necessarily the best fit for the districts in which they ran, and this proved to be a disastrous decision. We are in this mess not because of our principles but because of our leadership’ lack of commitment to our principles. Jim Durkin has abandoned Republican principles of lower taxes, reduced spending and standing up for our Constitutional rights. Raising taxes to spend more money we don’t have and attacking the Constitutional rights of honest citizens is not a winning message. We need to be united as a party against tax increases and we need to be the party of fiscal responsibility. Jim Durkin’s strategy of offering voters a ‘Democrat Lite’ agenda has been a colossal failure. Our party needs bold leadership if we ever hope to get out of the super minority. Jim Durkin has made it clear he is not willing to provide that bold leadership and is leaving the General Assembly. We wish him good luck on his future endeavors.” The Illinois Freedom Caucus is comprised of State Representatives Adam Niemerg (R-Dieterich); Chris Miller (R-Oakland); Brad Halbrook (R-Shelbyville); Blaine Wilhour (R-Beecher City) and Dan Caulkins (R-Decatur). The members of the Illinois Freedom Caucus are members of the Illinois General Assembly who are advocating for limited government, lower taxes and accountability and integrity in government.)

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

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