ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Chicago GOP Declares War on Free Speech, Silences Conservative Voices and Bans Illinois Review Articles on Facebook Discussion Group (COMMENT: I should write a book about what anti-conservative leaders of the following have done since 2000 to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and to stop their members from reading those newsletters: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But aside from casting sunlight on the inner workings of the Chicago GOP and the personal perspectives of its leaders, Illinois Review continues to publish an overwhelming majority of articles focused on conservative news and opinion – standing up for the grassroots, and challenging the establishment leadership of the IL GOP, who seem more concerned with maintaining their power and titles than actually winning and supporting the grassroots. Boulton and Fiedler remain fierce allies and defenders of embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy.)

— Illinois named 7th worst state for retirement – Zeta Cross
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/illinois-named-7th-worst-state-for-retirement-by-wallethub/article_467f707a-a3e9-11ed-83f5-fb87b8e99041.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Illinois is much less affordable than the other Midwest states,” Gonzalez told The Center Square. “In general, it costs more to retire in Illinois than it does in most other states in the country.” Despite Illinois not taxing retirement income, general tax policy and lack of taxpayer friendliness were the main factors in Illinois’ low ranking, Gonzalez said. “Taxes are a huge part of why Illinois loses out to other states like Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Nebraska,” she said. “Special tax breaks for seniors and tax policy for retirement income just aren’t there in Illinois.” High sales taxes, high property taxes and high inheritance taxes are among the main reasons why Illinois came in 47th for affordability, she said.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/policy/immigration/biden-administration-forced-border-officials-to-release-six-hundred-thousand-illegal-immigrants
— FROM THE ARTICLE: The most egregious gun control policy is the new Illinois gun law that bans assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. The law allows people who owned assault weapons or high-capacity magazines before the law was passed to keep them — but only if they register their weapons with the Illinois State Police. This law is unconstitutional and violates both the Second and Fifth Amendments. Fortunately, a judge in Illinois has issued a temporary restraining order , preventing the implementation of the law — but only for the plaintiffs of the case that were before the judge.

DAILY SIGNAL
— Race Everywhere in Today’s America – Victor Davis Hanson
https://www.dailysignal.com/2023/02/03/race-everywhere-in-todays-america/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In sum, class, not race, remains the best litmus test of being underprivileged in America. It is no longer synonymous with race. No wonder the identity politics industry now strains to attach prefixes such as “systemic” or “implicit” to “racism,” or “micro” to “aggression,” purportedly to ferret out bias that otherwise is not apparent. Pause to reflect that America is the only successful multiracial constitutional republic in history. To survive in an increasingly dysfunctional and hostile world abroad, the unique idea of the United States requires concord. But national cohesion is only possible through citizens subordinating their tribal interests to a common culture. Only then do they cease being automatons of warring tribes and collectives. As the world becomes ever scarier, Americans must—as Benjamin Franklin once warned—hang together, or most certainly they will soon all hang separately.)

— Speaker McCarthy Addresses Democrats’ Issues With Statues, Portraits. Offending symbols point out true history of Democratic Party, he says. – Michael Clements (COMMENT: Democrats have declared a Second Civil War on Republicans. Ever-increasingly, Democrats a) falsely paint themselves as having been the Union Army in Civil War and b) falsely paint Republicans as having been the Confederate Army in the Civil War. Ever-increasingly, Democrats join up with America’s enemies to win their Second Civil War and get rid of Republicans once and for all. What if in 1861, Mexico had officially joined with the Confederacy to defeat America? To Mexico’s credit, it abolished slavery in 1829.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Party of Lincoln He pointed out that the Republican Party started with Abraham Lincoln, the president credited with freeing the slaves in America. McCarthy pointed out that slavery, defended by Southern Democrats, was the issue that brought about the Civil War. He called the war the “greatest challenge ever to our Constitution.” McCarthy said Joseph Rainey of South Carolina, the first black American elected to the House of Representatives, was a Republican. He suggested that the statues remind the Democratic Party’s true history. “If I was a Democrat, I wouldn’t be proud of their legacy, I wouldn’t be proud of their history, and I would want to change it, ” said McCarthy. “There’s not one Republican you have to take down.”)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Freshman Rep. Delia Ramirez to give progressive response to State of the Union.” Who represents you in Congress? Things have gotten much worse for me congressionally. Democrat Ramirez currently represents me in congress. GAO works for Congress. In 1989, Republican Henry Hyde represented me. In 1989, he came to my defense against my Democrat GAO superiors. They had retaliated against me big time because in 1988 I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. They had a) thrown me off audits of IRS, b) given me an adverse job assignment, c) given me unfair performance expectations, d) turned my subordinates against me, e) given me an unfair performance appraisal, and f) ranked me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. Previously, they had a) kept me off audits of IRS 1980-1985, b) delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and c) forced me to take a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5, to GS-9 Step 10. After Hyde came to my defense, my Democrat GAO superiors’ retaliation against me diminished somewhat. But eight years later, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.”

— Millennials and Money: 5 Simple Ways To Get Ahead of Your Peers Financially – HEATHER TAYLOR (COMMENT: What helped you get ahead financially? I earned job-related college degrees when I was 21, 27, 31, and 48. I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48. I earned a job-related professional license when I was 32. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I always spent far less on immediate pleasures than my peers. Instead of renting, I bought a new town home in 1972 and condos in 1974 and 1976. My wife and I got married in 1978. We both worked, but in anticipation of having children, we spent money like we had only one paycheck. We always saved as much as we could for our retirement. Instead of renting, we bought a home in Wheaton in 1978 and we had one built in Wheaton in 1984. But according to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, I got ahead financially, because I avoided the draft. Because I benefitted from discrimination against minorities, females, younger people, LGBTQers, renters, non-Protestants, non-German Americans, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Because the federal government grossly overpaid me. Because of my wife’s income. Because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents. Because my federal pension and health, dental, and vision insurance subsidies are far too generous. What do you think?)

Previously, they had a) kept me off audits of IRS 1980-1985, b) delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and c) forced me to take a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5, to GS-9 Step 10. After Hyde came to my defense, my Democrat GAO superiors’ retaliation against me diminished somewhat. But eight years later, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.”

— Republicans Revive a Debate on Term Limits
https://emeatribune.com/republicans-revive-a-debate-on-term-limits/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Republicans tried to hold Democrats responsible for the failure, 40 Republicans also balked, and 30 of them were among the most senior Republicans in the House. That included Rep. Henry Hyde of Illinois, the chair of the Judiciary Committee, who won an ovation for his speech in opposition to the proposal. “I just can’t be an accessory to the dumbing down of democracy,” Hyde told his colleagues.)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— 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.)

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.

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.

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.)

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.)

— COMMENT: Democrats use African American studies to promote hatred against Republicans. I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. Democrats promote hatred against Republicans. I should write a book about my Black superiors, my Black supervisors, my Black coworkers, and my Black subordinates who rejected my Democrat superiors’ efforts to make them hate me because I am a Republican who is conservative, White, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978.

— COMMENT: Democrats ask “Does the IRS audit some people more often than others?” IRS can use court decisions to disallow just about any deduction that it wants to. My 1972-1980 and 1992-1997 federal income tax returns show that I paid less tax because I deducted my education expenses. In 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my education deductions to punish me because I increasingly complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They outrageously, disgustingly, and unethically argued that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I took at DePaul 1976-1977 and deducted a) did not relate to my IRS Revenue Officer job duties, b) did not help me carry out those duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) were taken by me to qualify myself for a new trade or business, and d) were a distraction. They ignored a) my IRS Revenue Office position description, b) my graduate school applications, and c) the fact that IRS encourages its Revenue Officers to take the courses that I took.)

I would focus on the success that training had in promoting hatred against Republicans and especially against Republicans who share my demographics.

https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/israel-mass-shootings-second-amendment/2023/02/01/id/1106851/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a better idea. He announced over the weekend what the Jewish state’s response would be. “In addition, we’re expanding and accelerating gun licensing to thousands of licensed citizens, including first responders. This will allow citizens to save lives,” he said on his official Facebook page. “When civilians have guns, they can defend themselves,” agreed Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israeli national security minister. Itzik Chiprout, chairman of the Israeli Legal Weapon Association, also thought this was an excellent move. “The police cannot be everywhere,” said Chiprout. “Even a swift police reaction is sometimes not enough. Civilians that are armed save lives.”)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Mendrick: ‘If they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639176461-mendrick-if-they-ll-treat-your-duly-elected-sheriff-of-this-county-that-way-just-think-how-they-ll-treat-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick said U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (R-IL) “got nasty” with him in a phone call after he said he would not enforce the state’s gun ban. Mendrick is one of around 95 sheriffs who said they won’t enforce the ban involving over 170 types of firearms and millions of guns statewide. The law was ruled unconstitutional in a downstate court and is expected to see the same fate in other courts. “My voters had asked me to put out a statement on my opinion of what I’ll be doing on this and the way the law was written. It did nothing on enforcement,” Mendrick told Chicago’s Morning Answer radio host Dan Proft. “We all know if you don’t put who’s responsible, enforcing the law, that it’s going to be an unfunded mandate down at the end of the year. That’s just how this works every time. And I couldn’t get anybody to tell me yes or no. Will we be expected to enforce this? Until I got a call from Sean Casten, congressman, who told me that if I was willing to go to a house filled with Molotov cocktails, I should have no problem going to people’s doors for this law.” Proft pointed out Casten, a Democrat, had suggested Mendrick resign. “And he called on you to resign,” Proft said. “Yeah, to resign. ‘Recall,’ I think he said there’s something like that. He told me on the phone to I have no First Amendment right as a sheriff. And I really thought that was odd, to see the shock and horror of a politician when they don’t get their way or when somebody challenges them, simply because before you even started the conversation of is this right or wrong,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that when he pushed backed against Casten the congressman “got nasty.” “Well, it got worse, he said some other things I’m not going to divulge just because he really got nasty with me,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that the lack of respect for another elected official had him question how Casten treats ordinary Illinoisans. “But think about it, if they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you,” Mendrick said. “I mean, I couldn’t believe it. I live in the definition of a hostile work environment, political intimidation.” Casten was one of five other Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation who penned a letter against Mendrick. Casten took to extreme language in his characterization of the decision by Mendrick and around 95% of the state’s sheriffs to not enforce the law saying the sheriff’s “actions are going to make future mass shootings more likely.” Mendrick answered Casten’s accusations in a statement. “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 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.” Mendrick was clear in his rebuke of the law after its signing in early January. “I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution,” Mendrick said. “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 non-compliance of this Act.” He has since become a focal point of angry Democrats seeking to impose their will on local law enforcement. Political organizer Jeanne Ives, a former state representative and former gubernatorial and congressional candidate, was one of hundreds who packed into the DuPage county Board chambers in a Jan. 24 meeting. “I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick. He has done an outstanding job keeping our communities safe. He has also worked very hard in turning around the lives of those incarcerated in his jail,” Ives said in statement.)

DAILY HERALD
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Clarity and common sense casualties of DuPage debate over new gun ban.” DuPage County Democrat elected officials and party leaders have come out strongly against the Second Amendment, in favor of the Protect Illinois Communities Act (PICA), and against Mendirick. DuPage County Republican elected officials and party leaders should come out strongly in favor of the Second Amendment, in opposition to PICA ,and in support of Mendrick.
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20230201/daily-herald-opinion-clarity-and-common-sense-casualties-of-dupage-debate-over-new-gun-ban
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The back and forth between Du­Page County Sheriff James Mendrick and county officials upset about his stance on Illinois’ new high-powered weapons ban turned into quite the political soap opera this month, complete with press conferences, protests, TV appearances and, finally, some sort of consensus after Mendrick met with DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair Deb Conroy Monday. Come Tuesday morning, however, Mendrick had this to say: “Don’t listen to the media,” his statement starts out. “I was not threatened to be censured or anything else during this meeting. The meeting that I had with State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair … Conroy yesterday was the first day three tiers of government came together in discussion on this topic.” First, a little context — and clarity. “This topic,” of course, is the sheriff’s initial refusal to enforce a provision of the new law requiring current owners of high-powered weapons to register them with the state. The meeting he refers to ended with an agreement that he would enforce the law after clarification that the ban does not mandate deputies go door to door checking on compliance. And while Monday’s meeting may not have mentioned censure, it was followed by a joint statement in which Conroy says she will not seek censure — an idea raised at an earlier public meeting and elsewhere. Mendrick’s statement then assures gun owners that sheriff’s deputies would not be showing up at the homes of “law-abiding residents to harass them over gun registration.” “We will not be sending deputies out proactively to take your lawfully owned guns,” he went on. “Please remove that stressor from your lives.” We would argue that Mendrick and others created “that stressor.” Officials have every right to question how they will be expected to enforce the law, but they jumped all too quickly to conclusions and, in some cases, distortions. While lawmakers have made clear that house-to-house inspections are not expected, opponents continue to stoke fears. Earlier this month, Gov. J.B. Pritzker called the refusal of many Illinois sheriffs to enforce the law “political grandstanding at its worst.” We have come to agree. Just look to McHenry County, where the partisanship is so strong Republicans have called for the county to become a gun sanctuary. In DuPage, Mendrick refused to answer calls from local reporters on his stance. He did not appear before the county board. But he was more than happy to share his concerns with like-minded listeners on AM 560’s “Black and Right” radio program and on Fox News’ “America Reports.” It’s a big step forward that Mendrick has agreed to enforce the law. Other dissenting sheriffs should follow suit. But let’s not forget: That was their job in the first place.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Nearly 40 residents speak about McHenry County resolution denouncing state gun ban. Resolution will move to full board despite concerns about ‘inflammatory’ language.” What are the Republican leaders of your county doing to make your county a gun sanctuary?
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/2023/01/31/nearly-40-residents-speak-about-mchenry-county-resolution-denouncing-state-gun-ban/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A resolution opposing the new Illinois gun ban is set to be considered by the McHenry County Board, but changes to the measure are almost certain to come, officials said. The resolution, which would affirm McHenry County’s stance against House Bill 5471, would not make the county a gun sanctuary as some have pushed for, but does denounce the new law, calling it unconstitutional and a violation of the Second Amendment. At the county’s Law and Government Committee meeting on Tuesday, more than 100 residents showed up, with nearly 40 of them speaking. As has been the case with previous meetings where this topic was discussed, those who spoke were divided on the topic. The resolution did not get enough votes on Tuesday to be recommended as written, with the committee split in a 3-3 vote. However, the resolution will still move on to the full County Board where it will be considered in a part of the agenda that will open it up for more discussion instead of the consent agenda where items are voted en masse and typically without discussion. The gun ban, passed by the Illinois General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker in early January, bans more than 100 different guns from being purchased, most of which are semi-automatic rifles, along with different attachments and caps the amount of ammunition certain guns can have. It also creates a requirement that owners of the newly banned guns eventually register them with the Illinois State Police. . .In addition to the resolution being considered, McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally has filed a lawsuit seeking to declare the law unconstitutional. Other lawsuits throughout the state – including one with a McHenry County gun shop on board – seek similar outcomes. Tuesday’s meeting also follows a statement by McHenry County Sheriff Robb Tadelman saying neither he or other deputies would enforce the registration provision of the bill. He joined roughly 80 other sheriffs in Illinois in making the declaration.)

— Many well-intentioned people defend the affirmative action regime despite its visible consequences. – George Liebmann (COMMENT: Who should pay the price of Affirmative Action (AA)? According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, the more of the following that you are, the bigger the price that you should pay for AA: heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, married, childless, gun-owner, non-veteran, non-poor, Protestant, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. I am all of the aforesaid. I was born in 1948. I have been married since 1978. I have been a gun-owner since high school. I am a draft avoider. I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran. I am 100% German American. My ancestors have been in America since 1844. With few exceptions, the fewer of the aforesaid demographics that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes share with me, the more that they demand that I pay the price of AA. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

DUPAGE COUNTY
— Joint Statement on DuPage County Public Safety (QUESTIONS: DuPage County has the second most residents of Illinois’ 102 counties. It has more residents than five states and the District of Columbia. What do the 80 Illinois County Sheriffs who object to the Protect Illinois Communities Act  (PICA) have to say about this? Have any of them been threatened with censure like Mendrick has been? So far, exactly what has Pritzker demanded that Illinois County Sheriffs do to implement the PICA? What will Pritzker demand that they do to implement the act? How do Illinois residents become “licensed” to own an assault weapon? Is it by having a FOID card? If Illinois residents become licensed to own assault weapons by having a FOID card, what about those in DuPage County who have assault weapons but do not have a FOID card? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from them? What if Pritzker gives Mendrick a list of residences in DuPage County that have assault weapons in them but no one living there has a FOID card? What if Pritzker demands that Mendrick go to those doors seeking to remove those assault weapons? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that after January 1, 2024, Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from those who have failed/refused to register them in their county?)
https://www.dupagecounty.gov/Content.aspx?id=67541
(THE STATEMENT: Statement attributable to DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, and DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin: “DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, Sheriff James Mendrick, and State’s Attorney Robert Berlin engaged in a meaningful conversation during which they discussed their shared commitment to the safety of DuPage County residents. The conversation also included discussion of Illinois’ new assault weapons ban, known as the Protect Illinois Communities Act. Enforcement of this law does not demand that deputies go door to door seeking to remove weapons from those licensed to own them. With this understanding, Sheriff Mendrick is committed to enforcing all state and local laws. Chair Conroy is committed to supporting the Sheriff’s Office in maintaining safe communities within DuPage County and sees no reason to pursue a censure resolution at this time. All parties look forward to positive, productive collaboration on important initiatives that will keep DuPage residents safe and ensure the security of our communities moving forward.”)

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— Illinois State Police enforcing state’s gun ban, reveal one case under investigation – Greg Bishop (COMMENT: Exactly what has Pritzker demanded that your County Sheriff do to enforce the Protect Illinois Communities Act? Is your County Sheriff complying with those demands? For example, what if someone in your county continues to sell assault weapons to residents of Illinois and Pritzker demands that your County Sheriff stop them?)
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/illinois-state-police-enforcing-state-s-gun-ban-reveal-one-case-under-investigation/article_6462dc04-a0f0-11ed-a9d5-d30cb6d205bd.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois State Police say they took enforcement action against a business for openly advertising the sale of newly banned weapons, but no additional information was provided. In a YouTube video Friday, gun-rights advocate Todd Vandermyde revealed he’d been told that the state is taking actions to enforce the state’s ban on certain semiautomatic guns and magazines. “It appears that there was a gun shop that was selling stuff, post the enactment,” Vandermyde said after sharing an anonymous tip that state police confiscated weapons from an individual. Monday, a spokesperson for Illinois State Police confirmed in a statement to The Center Square that ISP took enforcement action earlier this month against a business for “openly advertising the sale of banned weapons.” The statement said the investigation is ongoing and additional information wasn’t immediately available. Vandermyde cautioned what he sees transpiring. Cook County Sheriff “Tom Dart and everybody can say there aren’t going to be house-to-house searches, I would beg to differ with you, sheriff,” Vandermyde said. While Dart has said they will enforce the gun ban, most of the state’s 102 sheriffs have said they won’t. ISP said Monday state police are “charged with upholding all state laws, including enforcement of businesses that openly violate current laws.” The law is being challenged in several state and federal judicial circuits. In McHenry County Monday, a motion was made to move its gun-ban challenge from state court to federal court. In several separate pending federal cases, ISP made a motion to consolidate into a Crawford County case last week. Chief U.S. District Judge Nancy Rosenstengel, an Obama appointee, reassigned two of those cases to Stephen McGlynn, a Trump-appointed judge. “The action arises out of the same facts and is closely related to [the Illinois State Rifle Association’s] Harrel, et al. v. Raoul … which was filed before this action and is assigned to District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn,” Rosenstengel said. The Crawford County case Langley v. Kelly was the first lawsuit filed against Illinois’ gun ban in state court, but it was transferred to federal court after the ISRA case was filed in federal court with a judge assigned. ISRA’s Ed Sullivan said while there are several independent cases in Illinois courts alleging individuals’ Second Amendment rights are being infringed, “we also have to keep an eye on the price elsewhere as well,” including a Second Amendment case filed in Maryland. “Because what happens elsewhere certainly can influence what happens here, so I think Maryland is the most obvious target for us to keep an eye out,” Sullivan told The Center Square. In that Maryland case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit heard oral arguments Dec. 6. It’s unclear when a ruling would be rendered. Still pending in Illinois federal court is a ruling on a TRO in the challenge of Naperville’s gun ban. The judge in that case Monday notified the state that it is also a defendant after plaintiffs expanded their challenge last week. In a separate state challenge last week, state Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, filed a lawsuit against the state’s gun ban. Caulkins is the lead plaintiff with a new association called Law-Abiding Gun Owners of Macon County. Attorney Thomas DeVore filed to intervene, claiming he has clients that don’t want to be part of a group he said may not stand legal scrutiny. “Dan is trying to take the position that my clients are members of an association that they never heard of and they never agreed to join and that could place some risk on them,” DeVore told The Center Square. “The attorney general might want to start deposing them.” DeVore filed an Effingham County challenge on behalf of 866 named plaintiffs. It is pending an appellate court decision of a lower court’s temporary restraining order blocking the law. A ruling on a TRO is pending in a White County case where DeVore represents nearly 1,700 named plaintiffs. Caulkins’ attorney Jerry Stock labeled DeVore’s filing as a “side show.” Stock argued he doesn’t need hundreds of plaintiffs in a case to prove the law is unconstitutional. “There was no way I was going to attempt to represent hundreds of clients when the remedy sought is a judgment, not the temporary time out,” Stock told The Center Square. “While we’ll seek that on this path, the real goal was to knock this legislation out. I thought that my firm taking a fee based on the volume of clients was not something I could be comfortable with ethically.” Stock said he wasn’t casting aspersions and people can hire any attorney they want, but he “very strongly disagrees” with DeVore’s approach. “I think it’s a far more liberal way of pursuing the claims,” Stock said. “And not having to implicate every individual gun owner or to charge every individual gun owner a fee, because it just was not necessary.” A hearing in Caulkins’ case is set for Friday in Macon County.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— The gun ban law won’t protect us from criminals – Randy Illg, Union
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/30/letter-the-gun-ban-law-wont-protect-us-from-criminals/
(FROM THE LETTER: The supposed intent of the gun ban law is to make us all safe. After the governor signed it, did you feel safer? Did you sleep better last night? The actual intent of the ban is to remove all small arms from civilian ownership. The Second Amendment deals with this because the men who wrote it understood that a defenseless citizenry is the breeding ground for dictators to take control. Law enforcement personnel, from the lowest rank to the state attorney, make value judgments every day. If they didn’t, every one of us would be driving 45 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, and every arrest would automatically result in prosecution. Why didn’t you cry foul when cities decided to become sanctuary cities for illegal aliens? Where was your outrage then? If you believe that this law will make us safer, you are mistaken. Criminals do not respect the law. Why don’t you call the governor of California and ask him how gun control is working for them? Criminals do not get FOID cards. They don’t go through the same training and licensing process as law-abiding citizens. Criminals don’t care about anyone but themselves. The only thing that will stop a criminal threat to your life is force. Once you understand this, you will do the right thing, arm yourself, and join those of us who are willing to stand up for what is right. Sleep tight.)

Ever since then, my anti-conservative and conservative-hating Jim Ryan promoting critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have viciously demonized me, viciously denigrated me, viciously condemned me, and viciously punished me for being “disloyal” to Jim Ryan. They ignore, dismiss, belittle, badmouth, demonize, denigrate, and condemn what I did to help elect Ryan in the general election in 2002. They continue to blame me and they continue to blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters a) for Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich in 2002 and b) for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2002 have suffered. They continue to demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me as being “too conservative.”)

— 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).

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— 7 Lessons From Those Who Retired By FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). 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.)

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.”)

— 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.)

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.

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?)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Ives: ‘I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639074798-ives-i-stand-in-support-of-sheriff-mendrick
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Political organizer Jeanne Ives spoke in support of DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick who stands opposed to the implementation of the state’s recent gun ban. . .Ives, the CEO of Breakthrough Ideas, stands against the move by DuPage County Board Chair Deb Conroy and a delegation of like-minded fellow party members to criticize Mendrick and seek his removal. Ives, a former state representative and former gubernatorial and congressional candidate, was one of hundreds, many holding signs reading “We support Sheriff Mendrick” who packed into the DuPage County Board chambers in a January 24 meeting. “I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick. He has done an outstanding job keeping our communities safe. He has also worked very hard in turning around the lives of those incarcerated in his jail,” Ives said. “When Sheriff Mendrick started heroin and criminality recidivism rates were 90% and 75% respectively and came down to 18 and 15% respectively. The chairwoman herself, just acknowledged that DuPage is one of the safest states in the country.” “It is remarkable, and hypocritical, of the chairman, and her Democrat state legislative colleagues and the Democrat Congressional delegation to politically assault Sheriff Mendrick for his thoughtful and reasonable position that HB5471 is unconstitutional. After Fridays decision by an IL judge to issue a TRO on the law, it is likely that the law IS unconstitutional.” “The DuPage chairman has herself passed numerous laws, that she probably thought were constitutional, but they aren’t.” “In 2013, she voted for pension reform, that in 2015 was judged unconstitutional.” “In 2017, she voted for SB31, a law requiring Illinois officials to not enforce federal immigration laws.” “For a decade, she voted for unbalanced budgets that are unconstitutional.” “And the chairman, along with her fellow legislators have passed numerous laws without the constitutionally required single subject for a bill or the requirement to read a bill on three separate days before passage.” “Those last two provisions were two of the reasons the judge issued a TRO on the law.” “The Chairman commented that ‘You do not get to choose which laws you comply with in the state of Illinois.’” “Five million illegal immigrants have crossed our border in the last two years and none of these people who insist that our laws be followed have said anything about that.” “If you think this is about keeping people safe, then you should know the chairwoman sponsored and voted for HB3447 which decriminalizes possession of enough fentanyl to kill 1500 people. She does not care about public safety.” “Everyone wants the violence to stop. But taking away the rights of legal gun owners while Cook County refuses to prosecute criminals with illegal guns is irrational.” “And it is telling that the law allows gun manufacturers in Illinois to continue to make and sell these now ‘banned’ guns for people in other states. SO, I guess it isn’t about the guns.” U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) took to extreme language in his characterization of the decision by Mendrick and nearly 90% of the state’s sheriffs to not enforce the law saying the sheriff’s “actions are going to make future mass shootings more likely.” Mendrick answered Casten’s accusations in a statement. “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 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.” Casten was one of five other Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation who penned a letter against Mendrick.)

— State Rep. Adam Niemerg said the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines is an attack on Second Amendment rights and an attempt to avoid the larger issue: lack of mental health support in Illinois. (COMMENT: Democrats have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that Republicans are mentally ill.)
https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/illinois-lawmaker-says-banning-assault-weapons-masks-larger-issue-mental-health
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A downstate Republican is joining area sheriffs in pushing back against Illinois’ new assault weapons ban. Sheriffs in Crawford, Jasper and Lawrence counties are among many law enforcement agencies that have refused to enforce the new law, claiming it is unconstitutional. . .”You’re talking about gun violence, and the solution is we are going to strip these folks in this room of their Second Amendment rights. We have some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation but still, crime is out of control in the city of Chicago as I alluded to earlier, so if the Democrats want to come to me and talk about mental health, completely open to that,” said Niemerg. The Protect Illinois Communities Act is being challenged by several state and federal lawsuits, including at least one backed by the NRA.)

https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusinesscouncil/2023/01/09/a-looming-recession-and-how-it-may-affect-tax-collections/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The only time a tax collection issue becomes subjective is when it’s assigned to a revenue officer. This does not happen often. The IRS likes most tax collection issues handled quickly, which is why they prefer the ACS handling it. When a tax collection matter is pulled out of the ACS and assigned to a revenue officer, it becomes a person-to-person issue. When a taxpayer calls the ACS, the agent you speak to is the first available. When dealing with a revenue officer, you are dealing with a person assigned to the particulars of your case.)

WHEATON PATCH
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Conroy Seeks Censure, Residents Split On Sheriff’s Weapons Ban Stance. DuPage County Board Chair Deb Conroy said Tuesday she plans to seek censure of Sheriff Mendrick for his stance on the statewide ban. Conroy said she will introduce a resolution in February to censure Mendrick.” DuPage County has more residents than five states (Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota) and the District of Columbia. DuPage County Republicans vehemently oppose any such censure. I should write a book about my “Republican” critics/opponents a) who fail/refuse to support Mendrick and b) who tried but failed with a surprise effort to get the Illinois Center Right Coalition to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters at the start of its annual convention in Wheaton in 2006. They blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for Bill Brady’s defeat in the 2006 Republican gubernatorial primary. Previously, they blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for Jim Ryan’s loss to Blagojevich in 2002.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— How will Conroy proceed with her censure of Mendrick? What about due process? What rights will she accord Mendrick? When and how will Conroy put her charges against Mendrick in writing and publish those charges? Will she give Mendrick an opportunity to respond to those charges in writing and publish his response? Will she allow conservatives like me, that is, platform Republicans like me, that is, Republicans like me to file amicus curiae (friend of the court) type documents with the DuPage County Board in support of Mendrick? Will she allow Mendrick to speak in his defense at her February 14 DuPage County Board meeting? Will she allow Mendrick’s supporters like me to speak in defense of Mendrick at her February 14 DuPage County Board meeting? In 2006, the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) did not accord me such rights when my critic/opponents tried but failed with a surprise effort to get ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters at the start of its annual convention in Wheaton in June of 2006. – Dave Diersen

No one can go to school, to church, to a concert, to a celebration, to a park or to a movie without fearing they suddenly will be targeted by a slaughterer wielding deadly weapons.” Criminals will always have semiautomatic weapons. As crime increases under the Democrats, the need for semiautomatic weapons for self-defense increases. Under the Democrats, expect that as crime increases, a) 911 response times will increase and b) law enforcement will be overwhelmed by criminals using semiautomatic weapons.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A McLean County judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit filed by three prospective candidates for Normal municipal positions that are not set to appear on the spring ballot. Eleventh Circuit Judge Mark Fellheimer determined that the claims filed on the candidates’ behalf by former Republican attorney general candidate Tom DeVore against Normal’s town government and Clerk Angie Huonker were not aligned with state and local law. At issue was whether the clerk was required to certify the candidates’ petitions for the offices of town collector and town supervisor, two offices that are not part of Normal’s government body, and town clerk, a position that is currently appointed.)

STATELINE
— TRAGIC: Illinois students trade alcohol, vaping for marijuana use – John Clark
https://www.mystateline.com/news/local-news/report-illinois-students-trade-alcohol-vaping-for-marijuana-use/
(FROM THE ARTICLE’: According to a recent survey, alcohol and vaping use amongst 8th, 10th, and 12th-grade students has declined, but marijuana use has increased. The Illinois Youth Survey is undertaken every two years by participating school districts across the state. FHN provided the survey results for Stephenson and Jo Daviess counties, which showed that past-year alcohol use is between 24 – 31% in the 10th grade, increasing to 44 – 52% in the 12th grade, with more than 50% of the students who drank reporting that they received the alcohol from their parents. Winnebago County showed 32% alcohol use in 10th grade, increasing to 42% in 12th grade. Boone County showed 27% in 10th grade and 34% in 12th grade. Ogle County showed 31% alcohol use in 10th grade, increasing to 51% in 12th grade. The survey showed the percentage of alcohol use has been declining over the past four years, but the past-year use of marijuana is now between 23 – 25% of 12th-grade students in Stephenson and Jo Daviess counties, 22% in Boone County, 32% Winnebago County, and 31% in Ogle County. According to the Illinois Department of Human Services Substance Use Prevention Services, research over the years has identified the following risk factors for underage alcohol and other substance misuses: Antisocial behaviors, perceptions of peer substance use, low perceived risk of harm, poor family-youth relationships, and parental acceptance of substance use, school absenteeism, and availability and marketing of substances to youth.)

— Governments that disarm the people have troubling history – CLIFFORD C. NICHOLS
https://www.abqjournal.com/1154293/governments-that-disarm-the-people-have-troubling-history.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When considering gun controls, a nation must first acknowledge that this world is, by definition, broken. It’s a given evil will erupt from time to time, no matter what anyone does to prevent it. It’s just where and when it will happen that is most often unforeseeable. Once that is agreed upon, perhaps we can also further agree that, when evil does erupt – whether the threat is personal or national – the last thing any of us should want is for us to have allowed our government to have removed our ability to defend ourselves against it. Consider Hitler. He took away guns in Germany in the 1930s and in every country he conquered thereafter, particularly from (those) “disfavored” by his government. In the words of Heinrich Himmler, “Ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as having guns doesn’t serve the State.” Within that context, compare the evolution of today’s gun debate with the events that actually occurred in Germany not so very long ago: “In 1931, Weimar (Republic government) authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover… In reaction to such threats, the (Weimer) government authorized the registration of all firearms … for ‘public safety.’ The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group. “In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the (gun registration) records (of the former Weimer government) to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. …” (“How the Nazis Used Gun Control,” by Stephen P. Halbrook, National Review, Dec. 2, 2013.) At minimum, the foregoing should highlight that, from the perspective of some governments’ like Hitler’s, the operative word in “gun control” is control. Such control as that which allowed the Nazis, i.e. German government, in the 1940s to deport millions of people on trains to destinations like Auschwitz from every country over which Hitler’s “government,” i.e. tyranny, took control…. These were people who knew … they were destined to die – people who should have resisted, but didn’t in part because they had been disarmed. Guns taken from good people by their government only really matters when government, for whatever reason, turns evil and decides to do evil to good people. Whether a person supported Clinton or Trump, all should be able to agree … any government anywhere is susceptible to becoming a tyranny led by men or women who are evil. If you don’t think that can happen in any nation – even America – think again. Consider the massacre at Wounded Knee in South Dakota on Dec. 29, 1890. After the United States 7th Cavalry confiscated the firearms of a group of Lakota Sioux “for their own safety and protection at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation,” 297 Indians were murdered. After the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms, the Calvary began shooting and wiped out the camp; 200 of the dead were women and children. To empower the people of the United States with the ability to resist any tyranny that might threaten them in the future was the sole reason our founding fathers gave all Americans the right to bear arms guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment. Those who disagree should ask: Why?)

Fact is, rifles of any type and shotguns combined are used in less than 3% of all homicides, but Biden has never let facts get in the way of his political agenda.)

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.

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

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

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: COMMENT: Democrats say “We’re not going to let this die” and “Push for DuPage sheriff to retract weapons ban statement grows.”
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.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Mendrick’s stance is getting support from top conservative politico Jeanne Ives, the former gubernatorial hopeful, who says sheriffs have sworn to enforce the Constitution and that this new law is unconstitutional. But, last time I checked, the courts have not yet ruled on that matter. One downstate judge has temporarily put the bill on hold, but the case is being appealed. Finally, although the fight to chair the Republican National Committee continues to heat up ahead of the vote next weekend, Illinois’ top two Republicans— chairman Don Tracy and National Committeeman Richard Porter—seem to be standing by Ronna McDaniel.” (COMMENT: There is a rally for Mendrick tomorrow morning.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— How Censuring Anti-Grassroots, RINO State Party Officials Can Help the RNC Start Winning Again
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2023/01/how-censuring-anti-grassroots-rino-state-party-officials-can-help-the-rnc-start-winning-again.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Illinois, after disappointing and humiliating midterm election losses this past November that saw Democrats once again control every statewide office; maintain a supermajority in the Illinois House and Senate; dominate Illinois Supreme Court races; and beat Republicans in winnable congressional races – Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy refuses to step down, despite overseeing a Republican party that deliberately sent mailers attacking conservative grassroots candidates in the primary. In 2002, Don Tracy ran in the Illinois primary for the 50th State Senate District as a Democrat. In 2020, during the height of the pandemic, Tracy’s family-owned business, Dot Foods – where he is an owner, donated to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. And new revelations uncovered by Illinois Review show that on September 4, 2020 – just months before his election as chairman of the Republican Party of Illinois, Tracy made a personal donation to Citizens for Judge Emily Sutton – a Democrat running for Circuit Court Judge in the 9th Judicial Circuit. Just prior to Tracy’s donation, Sutton received a boost from two influential Illinois Democrats – US Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IL and US Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-IL, who at the time, was chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And in the 2022 Illinois governor’s primary, several Republican state party officials, including the general counsel of the Illinois Republican Party John Fogarty and RNC national committeeman Richard Porter supported and endorsed RINO governor candidate Richard Irvin’s campaign, despite Irvin pulling Democratic Primary ballots in 2014, 2016 and 2020. Irvin also spent years praising Democratic Gov. JB Pritzker – referring to him as a “great friend and a great leader.” And in 2020, Irvin attended a Black Lives Matter rally, yelling, “I can’t breathe!” To this day, Porter defends Irvin’s Republican credentials, publicly referring to him as a “great Republican!” as witnessed by over 200 grassroot conservative Republicans during an Illinois Republican State Central Committee meeting in early December. Fogarty served as an attorney representing the Irvin campaign, in addition to being the staff attorney for the IL GOP, and Porter served as “honorary” co-chairman of the campaign, despite Tracy saying the IL GOP was “strictly neutral” during the governor’s primary. In December, Tracy, Porter and Demetra DeMonte, the other RNC national committeewoman, endorsed Romney-McDaniel for re-election as RNC chair. Fox News reported in November that Porter was circulating a support letter for Romney-McDaniel’s re-election bid amongst RNC committeemen. Just recently, Illinois Review published an article after numerous sources confirmed that Porter was quietly whipping votes among Illinois Republican State Central Committee members to amend the Bylaws to provide Porter and DeMonte with third terms as RNC national committeeman and committeewoman. The Bylaws were amended in 2015, as Porter and DeMonte began their first term, to limit national committeeman posts to two, four-year terms. Porter denies that this story is true – telling anyone who will listen that the story is full of lies, yet he refuses to publicly acknowledge that he will not seek a third term, requiring an amendment to the Bylaws. As chairwoman of the RNC, conservative grassroots Republican Harmeet Dhillon will have significant influence over the party’s direction in 2024 and beyond – and if elected, she’ll certainly have her work cut out for her. But ridding our party of RINO’s should be one of her top priorities – and censuring state party officials who hurt the conservative cause, rather than advance it, should be one of her first acts as RNC chairwoman. And Dhillon is well prepared for the task. As President Donald Trump’s lawyer, she has taken on the RINOs — Former Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger — and the rest of the House January 6th Committee in its ongoing witch hunt of the 45th President. Dhillon also waged war against California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s draconian lockdown orders. In actions like these and others, Dhillon has proven that she is the Lion that Republicans need right now. It’s hard enough battling Democrats in any election – it’s even harder when conservative grassroots candidates have to go to battle with their RINO party leaders and the statewide GOP establishment. It’s no wonder a majority of Republicans support replacing Romney-McDaniel as RNC chairwoman – they’re tired of the RINO power grab and losing as well.)

I have been driving cars for 58+ years. I currently own seven cars and an SUV. Politics is nasty/vicious. Government is nasty/vicious. I should write a book about my nasty/vicious critics/opponents and their many press conferences, political events, government events, etc. since 2000 that they did not want me to attend. I would focus on those who would have used a kill switch in my car to stop me from attending if they could have.)
https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_app/world-economic-forum-says-the-future-for-cars-is-in-the-cloud_4998526.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Carmakers will be forced by President Joe Biden’s 2021 Infrastructure Act to install new features on cars in the coming years, including breathalyzers, speed limiters, vision and voice trackers and “kill switches” that automatically shut the vehicle off. Arguably, these features can reduce injuries; however, they also involve new surveillance technology that will monitor peoples’ behavior and make decisions for them. There are also concerns that building in controls that are not in the hands of the driver leaves consumers vulnerable to dangerous computer hacks. Like your smart phone today, the car of the future is going to know quite a lot about you. And as the WEF famously stated, “you will own nothing and be happy.”)

NEW YORK TIMES
— COMMENT: Democrats say “A gunman shot to death 10 people and injured at least 10 others on Saturday at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park, Calif., a city of about 60,000 people east of Los Angeles. He opened fire as many people in the city, which is predominantly Asian, were celebrating the eve of Lunar New Year. Many of the victims were in their 50s and 60s, said Sheriff Robert Luna of Los Angeles County, though he did not identify them. The gunman, whom the authorities identified as 72-year-old Huu Can Tran, is believed to have then gone to a dance hall in the neighboring city of Alhambra. But he fled, according to the authorities. Officers later found him in a parked van after he reportedly shot himself to death. The gunman used “a magazine-fed semiautomatic assault pistol” that is probably not legal in California, Luna said. His motives remain under investigation.”
