— The fate of the IRS could rest on the outcome of the 2024 election – AUSTIN DENEAN (COMMENT: Democrats run IRS and GAO. In 1971, I was one of the last Republicans IRS hired.

GAO audits IRS. In 1980, I was one of the last Republicans GAO hired. GAO forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO, gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals, delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS except 1986-1988, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and forced me to take its early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old even though I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, became a licensed CPA in 1981, earned professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— FRONT PAGE: 62% of Americans Lack a College Degree. Can They Solve the Labor Shortage? IBM, Delta and others have dropped college degree requirements but old hiring habits are hard to break. – Lauren Weber (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997), they ever-increasingly lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements and used Affirmative Action and DEI to hire, retain, and promote more Democrats. Consequently, all my coworkers who they promoted over me were Democrat DEI hires a) who had less work experience than I had, b) who had less education than I had, c) who had no professional certifications or fewer than I had, and/or d) who had no professional license like the one I had. Virtually all of them were minorities and/or females. Consequently, that ever-increasingly rendered WORTHLESS my job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970), three master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997), six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and professional license (1981). It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
https://www.wsj.com/lifestyle/careers/employers-open-more-doors-to-workers-without-degrees-but-few-are-getting-in-732f1098
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facing a long-term labor shortage, employers are looking to expand the pool of potential workers. One group—people without a college degree—holds particular promise. They make up nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population over 25, and traditionally have been ineligible for many managerial and technical positions. A push by some companies to eliminate degree requirements has opened the door to more candidates. Yet the share of jobs that went to those candidates barely budged after the requirement was lifted, according to a new analysis. There are several explanations for the plodding progress, from automated screening tools that favor college graduates to the difficulty of changing hiring managers’ long-held beliefs about the value of a bachelor’s degree. Many employers say they know time and demographics aren’t on their side. Baby boomers are aging out of the workforce, U.S. birthrates are low, and shifting immigration policies make it difficult to count on reinforcements from abroad. Meanwhile, college enrollment is on the decline. Only 38% of Americans over age 25 have at least a bachelor’s degree. . .Over the past few years, major employers such as medical device maker Medtronic, IBM, Delta, Google, Walmart and General Motors have eliminated degree requirements from hundreds of their job postings. They are among the early members of a movement known as skills-based hiring, where employers evaluate job candidates on their skills rather than their education. “If you’re putting unnecessary requirements on jobs, you’re automatically removing 62% of the population that could apply,” said Kelli Jordan, vice president of growth and development at IBM, one of the first employers to adopt skills-based hiring.)

MONEYWISE
— 65% of parents are still supporting their millennial children – Sebrina Wex (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents whose parents are/were filthy rich. How much money do/did your parents have/had? My critics/opponents have always falsely painted my parents as having been filthy rich because they sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. But in fact, my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Because my parents lacked money, I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964 to buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964. I washed dishes and delivered newspapers 1964-1966 to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966 and delivered mail 1966-1967 to pay my UIC expenses and buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967. I delivered mail in 1968 to pay for my UIC expenses and buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968. I delivered mail in 1969 to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970.)

— The GOP wants to bring back pay-for-performance – NATHAN ABSE (COMMENT: The Democrats who run GAO have used pay-for-performance (PFP) since 1989. My Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for PFP purposes. They used the extreme subjectivity in their performance appraisal system. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. The aforesaid took place while a) I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1989-1996, b) became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997, and c) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

— GOP challenges Illinois’ judicial policies on female, minority attorneys – Joey Schneider (COMMENT: To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. My Democrat superiors and supervisors in the federal government gave preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. That is, they discriminated against their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time.)
https://wgnradio.com/news/gop-challenges-illinois-judicial-policies-on-female-minority-attorneys/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three federal judges in Illinois adopted policies in 2020 that could allow female and minority attorneys extra time to make arguments in various court proceedings. In recent weeks, at least two Republican U.S. Senators and one conservative nonprofit group have challenged these policies. A nonprofit called America First Legal first sent a complaint to U.S. Chief Judge Diane Skyes on Jan. 25, claiming that the three Illinois judges with these policies promoted “unlawful judicial race and sex discrimination.”)

Because of their defunding GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors punished me severely They wasted my career, took many big adverse actions against me, and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. They forced me to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They turned my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 years. They delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13. They always ranked me in the bottom half or my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes.)

https://archive.nytimes.com/economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/29/gingrich-and-the-destruction-of-congressional-expertise/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In addition to the C.B.O., one often hears attacks on the Congressional Research Service, the Joint Committee on Taxation and the Government Accountability Office. Lately, the G.A.O. has been the prime target. Appropriators are cutting its budget by $42 million, forcing furloughs and cutbacks in investigations that identify billions of dollars in savings yearly. So misguided is this effort that Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma and one of the most conservative members of Congress, came to the agency’s defense. In a report issued by his office on Nov. 16, Senator Coburn pointed out that the G.A.O.’s budget has been cut by 13 percent in real terms since 1992 and its work force reduced by 40 percent — more than 2,000 people. By contrast, Congress’s budget has risen at twice the rate of inflation and nearly doubled to $2.3 billion from $1.2 billion over the last decade. Mr. Coburn’s report is replete with examples of budget savings recommended by G.A.O. He estimated that cutting its budget would add $3.3 billion a year to government waste, fraud, abuse and inefficiency that will go unidentified. . .It is essential that Congress not cripple what is left of its in-house expertise. Gutting the G.A.O. and abolishing the C.B.O. would be acts of nihilism. Any politician recommending such things is unfit for office.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When buses ferrying migrants north from Texas began arriving in Naperville, Illinois, which is roughly 30 miles from Chicago, local officials were caught off guard. “We had a total of six buses in December and they went directly to the Metra train station with occupants boarding trains to Chicago,” Naperville Director of Communications Linda LaClouche said. “We did not receive any prior notification of this and became aware of this after it happened.” After those buses dropped off their riders, the city started planning for migrant arrivals and forged an emergency operations plan, LaClouche said. “Given how the situation has evolved and changed, we continue to update our plan,” she said. Naperville has a population of 149,936 and a median household income of $143,754, according to Census data. It has about 68 homes currently on the market worth more than $1 million, according to residential real estate brokerage Redfin. It’s one of a laundry list of Illinois suburbs ? at least 20 in the greater Chicago area ? to which Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been busing migrants since the city of Chicago began fining and in some cases impounding buses. Abbott has not said why he is now targeting towns outside Chicago, and his office did not respond to a request for comment.)

NEW REPUBLIC
— What is/was your occupation? What percent in your occupation is/was minority and/or female? According to Democrat and RINO leaders, if there are fewer minorities and/or females in an occupation, it is because of racism and/or sexism. But wait, what about unpopular occupations, that is, what about bad jobs? Why would minorities or females want bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs. I was a part-time postal employee 1966-1969, an IRS Revenue Officer 1971-1980, and a GAO Analyst 1980-1997. Why would minorities or females want the bad jobs that I had? The answer is that they did not want them. That is why my superiors had a very hard time recruiting and retaining minorities and females. That is why they lowered requirements dramatically to hire, retain, and promote minorities and females. That is why they wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate.

DAILY MAIL
— Chicago property tycoon has spent $150,000 of his own money resettling almost 500 migrants in 15 buildings – but says he’s been condemned by locals and a city official ‘threatened his life’ Chris Amatore said he felt called by God to help house Chicago’s migrants. Migrants sleep on floors with no furniture, but are happy to be out of shelters. Amatore claims Alderman Greg Mitchell threatened his life for his efforts. – NIC WHITE

— Chicago considers raising retirement age for police and firefighters (COMMENT: The retirement age for federal employees who have not made Senior Executive Service ($191,900/year) and who are Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time is when they become eligible to retire. Extremely few federal employees make it into the Senior Executive Service. I became eligible for early retirement in 1993 when I was 45. My Democrat GAO superiors succeed in forcing me to take their expiring early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. If I had not taken it, I would not have been eligible for regular retirement until 2003 when I would have been 55. They made it all too clear that if I did not take their retirement “offer,” they would make those 6 years a living hell for me. SEE: Diersen v. GAO at: https://gopillinois.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DiersenGAOFifthAmendedComplaint.pdf )

ABC7
— Taxpayers foot bill for relocating migrants who want to leave Chicago – Chuck Goudie and Barb Markoff, Christine Tressel, Tom Jones, Maggie Green and Adriana Aguilar
https://abc7chicago.com/chicago-migrants-paying-for-migrant-crisis-texas/14373445/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s the secret side of Chicago’s migrant crisis. Some migrants who arrive here don’t want to stay. Some asylum-seekers coming to Chicago from the border, at a sizable cost to government agencies, are then going somewhere else. The ABC7 I-Team asked Illinois state officials for information on how many migrants are coming and going. An ABC7 data investigation reveals this double migration, the coming and going, is running up the tab for a crisis that already caught Illinois by surprise, and continues to stretch government resources and finances. . .The I-Team filed an open records request to find out how many migrants are leaving Illinois, what that costs and who’s paying? According to the Illinois Department of Human Services, migrant travel costs in the Chicago area, including people leaving by bus, plane and train, total more than $775,000. And when additional travel related expenses such as rideshares are factored in, it’s almost $850,000 of taxpayer money that has been spent on migrants moving out of Chicago. State officials say 4,327 migrants have now come and gone. That is more than 10% of the migrants sent to Chicago over the last year and a half. . .Catholic Charities has provided some of the logistical help in relocating migrants from Illinois. A spokesperson for Gov. JB Pritzker tells the I-Team that before leaving here, Illinois authorities make sure there is a friend or family member on the other end to receive the asylum-seekers, wherever they’re going. Records show many of the migrants leaving Illinois are going to New York, Florida and Georgia. And some are going back to Texas.)

DAILY HERALD
— House GOP is moving quickly to impeach Mayorkas as border security becomes top election issue – AP (COMMENT: Mayorkas is an operative for Democrat and RINO leaders. Charles Bowsher was an operative for Democrat and RINO leaders while he ran GAO 1981-1996. Bowsher ever-increasingly destroyed GAO and especially under Clinton 1993-1996 and under Gingrich 1995-1996. GAO is less than a shell of what it once was. Bowsher used Democrat and RINO budget cuts, Affirmative Action, DEI, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination to get rid of GAO’s employees who were conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time. He got rid of GAO employees who had accounting degrees, were CPAs, did not have Ivy League degrees, and/or who he had not promoted into his Senior Executive Service, currently $191,900/year, by age 40. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

January 26, 2024

Democrat and RINO leaders want America to officially stop enforcing its immigration laws, that is, to let all those who come into America stay in America forever if they claim asylum, refugee, parole, etc. status. That will elect Trump.

If/when Democrats and/or RINOs try to officially make your county, your township, your municipality, and/or your school district official sanctuaries for illegals, who will lead the fight against that? I will lead the fight against that in DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, and Wheaton Warrenville School District 200. Previously, in Wheaton, I successfully led fights against video gambling and pot.

Wheaton is holding a special meeting on bus regulations Monday, January 29, 2024, 7:00 PM.

Deerfield’s bus ordnance is at: https://deerfield.il.us/DocumentCenter/View/3731/Ordinance-Amending-Chapter-22-of-The-Municipal-Code-of-the-Village-of-Deerfield-Illinois-1975-As-Amended-Regarding-Unscheduled-Bus-Stops

I ask that the following speak out against Democrat/RINO orchestrated illegal immigration: a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), b) your representative on the IRP State Central Committee, c) the leaders of your county/township/ward Republican party organizations, d) your Republican congressman, state senator, and state representative, e) the Republican leaders of your county, township, municipality, and school district, f) the candidates on the March 19, 2024 Republican primary ballot in your precinct, g) conservative leaders and activists in your area, and h) religious leaders and activists in your area.

— Orland Park officially declares it is not a sanctuary city – Jeff Vorva
https://southwestregionalpublishing.com/2024/01/19/orland-park-officially-declares-it-is-not-a-sanctuary-city/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For years, Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau has been saying the village is a non-sanctuary municipality. On January 15, the board of trustees made it official. The board voted 6-0, with Joni Radaszewski absent, on an ordinance declaring that the village will not be a sanctuary city. In past meetings, Pekau said that allowing migrants into the community was unfair to the residents of the community and unfair to the migrants themselves as Orland Park is not equipped to handle them. He added that sanctuary cities go against federal law even though it’s being encouraged on the state and county level. “We are clearly not a sanctuary city,” Pekau said. “We will not aid and abet the state, the county, or the city of Chicago in violating federal law. “And it’s really unfortunate that we have to pass something like this. We shouldn’t really have to say that we need to pass an ordinance saying we’re going to follow federal law. But it seems like in this current environment, we do.” On the problems caused by migrants and illegal immigrants, Pekau paraphrased former President Ronald Reagan. “The beauty of America is that if you come here from somewhere else you can become an American,” Pekau said. “No other country takes people in, and they become Americans like America does. “But it must be done legally and it seems absolutely nuts that we have to pass an ordinance that we will follow U.S. law. Now Chicago has reached out and asked us to help them violate federal law.” The mayor said that there is $450 billion being spend nationally on “non-citizens illegally crossing our borders” and that money can be better spent on the local level.)

ABC7
— Naperville migrants: City scraps plan for residents to house new arrivals
https://abc7chicago.com/naperville-migrants-illinois-in-chicago-migrant-housing/14361376/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville is not moving forward with a plan to have residents house migrants in their homes. The city was considering putting together a list of residents willing to bring migrants into their homes. But city staff decided there are other state and federal agencies putting together lists of shelters to house migrants, so it’s not necessary for Naperville residents to pitch in. The decision came just one week from Chicago’s deadline for when migrants will start being evicted from shelters. The city said it’s continuously looking at that 60-day shelter stay policy, but no changes in the eviction date have been announced.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE WITH PICTURE: Naperville will not consider volunteer list for housing migrants – Alicia Fabbre
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240125/news/naperville-will-not-consider-volunteer-list-for-housing-migrants/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a memo to city council members Wednesday, Naperville City Manager Doug Krieger said the city received significant feedback following a Jan. 16 city council meeting where Councilman Josh McBroom suggested the idea. At that time, city staff was directed to look into the suggestion and report back to the council. “Based on initial staff research, migrant housing lists are currently being maintained by government agencies at the federal and state level, as well as through private charities,” Krieger writes in the memo. “As a result, it has been determined that it is not necessary for further city consideration and therefore this matter will not appear on a future city council agenda.” The message will be part of a “manager’s memorandum” expected to be posted to the city’s website, city spokeswoman Linda LaCloche said. At the Jan. 16 council meeting, McBroom floated the idea of a volunteer list of residents willing to house migrants and had the support of three council members – Nate Wilson, Jennifer Bruzan-Taylor and Paul Leong – to have staff look into the suggestion and report back to the council at a later date. Though McBroom said last week he was sincere in his proposal, he said Thursday the suggestion was a “polite challenge” to those who support an open border policy. “It was a sincere challenge because the city of Chicago clearly cannot handle this crisis anymore, and they’re putting pressure on the cities,” McBroom said. “The way I see it, we’ve got one of two options. Individuals can contact their state representatives to pressure them to get the border secure. Or, if you supported this policy and you believe an open border is a good policy, then are you willing to house a migrant family? There are a lot of them who are homeless right now in the dead of winter.” McBroom’s proposal quickly drew national attention, and McBroom on Thursday appeared on a Fox News program. It also sparked a flurry of emails to council members with reactions ranging from outrage from conservatives who blasted McBroom, a Republican, for suggesting people house new arrivals to a local church inquiring how families could help. McBroom brushed off some of the reaction from fellow conservatives, saying he could “take a few arrows” and said his challenge at least got people talking. Others, however, didn’t see his actions in the same light. “I don’t appreciate Naperville becoming a national laughing stock or just being used for political points,” Councilman Ian Holzhauer said. As the city faced increased scrutiny, Mayor Scott Wehrli said he had a discussion with McBroom late last week about his proposal. “I suggested to him if he had a change of heart, he should contact the city manager and let him know,” Wehrli said. McBroom on Thursday acknowledged he contacted Krieger about the proposal and asked to have it removed from future agendas. Wilson, who initially supported the measure, also requested the same. Krieger reached out to Taylor and Leong, who also supported ending further inquiry and removing it from the agenda. According to council policy, the support of three council members is needed to add an item to the agenda. To remove an item, two of those council members must support its removal. Wehrli, who said he did not support McBroom’s initial proposal, said the city will continue to ensure the safe passage of new arrivals to the landing zone in Chicago. Residents who want to help new arrivals are encouraged to visit chicago.gov.)

https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/653885165-mcbroom-i-haven-t-had-a-single-person-in-naperville-sign-up-to-house-illegal-aliens
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville City Council Member Josh McBroom said he hasn’t had any Naperville residents volunteer to house illegal aliens who have moved to the Chicagoland area. McBroom made the comments Thursday on AM 560’s Chicago’s Morning Answer with Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson. “It’s weird. During the last presidential race, we had thousands of Biden signs in Naperville. We’ve got houses all over town that advertise support for this mass migration of illegals. They say ‘no human is illegal,” McBroom said. “Since I’ve proposed this, I’ve haven’t had a single person ask me, ‘Where’s the sign-up sheet. I want to sign the sign-up sheet, I’m ready to sign my house up for the signup sheet’ It’s shocking.” “These are the people that voted for this. We’ve got thousands of illegals coming into the area. And they’re homeless— in the middle of winter,” McBroom said. ”You voted for this. You sign up. Be the change. Open your house. At the Jan. 16 Naperville City Council Meeting, McBroom suggested the city create a “signup sheet” whereby residents who support illegal immigration to the Chicagoland area could volunteer to house now homeless illegal aliens to live with them. “We hear from people that we should do more,” McBroom said. “We do have a very affluent community, a lot of big homes.” McBroom earned his Bachelor’s degree from Purdue University. He and his wife Emily settled in Naperville in 2001. McBroom is a Financial Advisor and owner of McBroom Financial Group in Naperville. He was elected to the Naperville city council in 2023. His current council term ends in 2027.)

https://afn.net/politics-govt/2024/01/25/reparations-resolution-lists-130-reasons-for-handing-out-14-trillion/
(COMMENT: Reacting to the resolution, GianCarlo Canaparo of the Heritage Foundation says the resolution claims slavery created “lasting harm” on black Americans. Among the poorest Americans, he says, there was little difference between struggling blacks and whites through most of the 20th century until the 1960s. Echoing a view of many others, such as black economist Thomas Sowell, Canaparo says the structure of the black family changed for the worse when President Lyndon Johnson introduced his “war on poverty” in 1964. What was supposed to end dependence on government instead created what is now known was the “welfare state” that hurt black families the most. “It is the family, staying in the family above all else,” Canaparo says, “that determines your economic, educational success in America.” Bush, 47, fits that description herself. The daughter of a local politician, Errol Bush, she graduated from a private Catholic prep school then graduated from nursing school.)

FEDERATION FOR AMERICAN IMMIGRATION REFORM
— Immigration Now a Zero-Sum Game (COMMENT: Everything is a zero-sum game. Everything given to members of one group is not given to members of another group. All my coworkers who my Democrat superiors promoted over me were Democrats a) who had less work experience than I had, b) who had less education than I had, c) who had fewer or no professional certifications, and/or d) who had no professional license. Virtually all of them were female and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.fairus.org/blog/2024/01/16/immigration-now-zero-sum-game
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sheer volumes of admissions now exceed national need, capacity, and manageability — a far cry from a rational, and limited, immigration approach designed to aggregate national purpose with mutual benefits. Instead, today’s immigration has often become a zero-sum game, the proposition that a gain for one side entails a corresponding loss for the other side…notably each and every American. Of course, it’s been evident for a long time; FAIR has been reporting regularly on the rising cost and impact of immigration. But while politicians have been able to conveniently ignore consequences and “kick the can” down the road for decades, the money is now running out, space is unavailable, and social resources are drained. The result has been a marked increase in the immediate shifting of resources and a displacement of Americans to accommodate surging migrant needs.)

ZERO HEDGE
— Cultural Replacement: Why The Immigration Crisis Is Being Deliberately Engineered – TYLER DURDEN
https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/cultural-replacement-why-immigration-crisis-being-deliberately-engineered
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Cultural Replacement Theory “Replacement Theory” is often denigrated by the media as a racist conspiracy held by white people who are “afraid to lose power.” This is nonsensical for a number of reasons, including the fact that if “white people” were a monolith and we had all the power, then we would simply snuff out any threats to that power and lock down our borders. There would be nothing anyone could do to stop us. The truth is, there is no white monolith, there is no patriarchy and there is no such thing as systemic racism. Do some leftist activists clamor for mass migration to replace white people in the US and Europe? Absolutely. They call it “decolonization.” Is this the real purpose of mass migration? Probably not. The replacement going on is not so much about replacing white people as it is about replacing western culture. The goal, I believe, is to open the floodgates to foreign elements because most of them come from more socialist systems that have no understanding of individual freedom. In this way, the establishment can dilute the American culture of independence and use the tyranny of the majority (democracy) to erase our values and principles forever. This is why you will hear Biden and his ilk constantly pontificate on “democracy” and the “defense of democracy’ and the conservative “threat to democracy.” This is very deliberate terminology. When they say “democracy”, they are talking about the rule of the mob; the tyranny of the majority. They are talking about collectivism, socialism and ultimately authoritarianism for the “sake of the greater good.” Migrants are being used to phase out the pillars of western civilization. This is why the borders must be secured now and illegals must be kicked out of the country with haste. No martial law, no FEMA detention facilities, no amnesty, no asylum, no welfare and no subsidies. They just need to be removed and sent back to where they came from and if they return illegally they should be severely punished. In order for this to happen it would appear that southern states will have to enforce their own border security. But how to do this without federal interference? The American public will have to step in and step up to help states like Texas. The movement will have to be so overwhelming that the federal government is afraid to intervene. The shape of this secure border action will require trial and error, but as long as Texas is willing to continue arresting illegals and shipping them out of the country, all that is needed is a contingent of deputized Americans to help watch the border and catch people trying to cross. There may also be a need for people to defend border walls and fences from federal sabotage. Some will argue that this constitutes a violation, a defiance of federal authorities, and I would say yes, it is, and that’s a good thing. The Biden Administration is in dereliction of its duty to keep the country safe from foreign invasion. Doing nothing and leaving borders undefended from mass immigration is no different from refusing to defend the border from a foreign military. If the current trend is allowed to continue, the stage will be set for a host of emergencies that will be exploited to give elites the excuse to erase what constitutional protections we have left. This cannot be tolerated. It’s time to end it.)

But city officials said they have recommended to Pritzker’s administration potential sites outside Chicago, sometimes with specific buildings in mind, a notion the governor’s office disputes. “And you know, again, just keep in mind that the state of Illinois can build a shelter anywhere in the state of Illinois. So, the state does not have to build a shelter in Chicago,” he said.)

— With fundraising up, Illinois GOP may be turning a corner – Greg Hinz
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/politics/illinois-gop-may-be-turning-corner#/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Just in time for election season, the Illinois Republican Party is showing signs of life. A fundraiser set for next month not only is a sellout, with 740 tickets purchased for the Feb. 9 dinner at a Rosemont hotel, but has garnered more money than the party reported raising all of last year. Combined with an armistice of sorts between often feuding factions on the party’s central committee, the party appears to have taken at least initial steps to pull out of the funk it’s been in since former Gov. Bruce Rauner lost his re-election bid to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November 2018. Rauner moved to Florida shortly after the 2018 vote, followed soon by Citadel chief Ken Griffin. Both men and a couple of others, such as shipping mogul Dick Uihlein, had almost personally kept the party funded, writing large personal checks. With them gone and Pritzker easily winning a new term in 2022, income dried up, with the Illinois Republican Party reporting income of only $230,000 in 2023, according to Illinois State Board of Elections records. That has changed. The upcoming Rosemont event featuring U.S. Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana already has grossed “more than $300,000,” says party Chairman Don Tracy, a Springfield lawyer who took office after Rauner left the state. And with three weeks to go, the party has added as many seats as it can to the Rosemont venue and sold them all. “That’s the biggest event I can remember in many years,” said Tracy in a phone interview. “There’s a lot energy.” “Seven hundred people and $300,000 — that’s quite an accomplishment,” said former party Chair Pat Brady. The event appears to be the largest fundraiser for the state party since a host of presidential candidates showed up at a 2011 Chicago event honoring Ronald Reagan’s birthday, according to Brady. In an odd twist that also indicates some change, Tracy said much of the proceeds from the event will be used to amplify the Illinois GOP’s early- and absentee-vote efforts. Ergo the dinner’s “bank the vote” theme. Former President Donald Trump famously ridiculed such efforts after his 2020 loss, repeatedly charging that any votes not cast in person on Election Day were subject to massive fraud. Many party professionals later concluded that relying strictly on in-person votes ceded too much ground to Democrats, and Tracy said efforts to get the GOP back into the early-vote game this year have the blessing of not just the Republican National Committee but Trump himself. Despite the new money, Illinois Republicans face a daunting task this election cycle. They hold no statewide offices, are in no super-minority positions in the Illinois House and Senate, and likely presidential nominee Trump lost the state by a wide margin to Democratic nominees in 2020 and 2016. Trump heading the 2024 ticket “could be a headwind,” particularly in Chicago, where the party needs to do much better, Tracy said. Tracy has remained neutral in this GOP contest, with Richard Porter, the GOP national committeeman from Illinois, having backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Regardless of who the party nominee is, “We’re going to be broad-based, on a wide range of issues. . . .We have a team,” Tracy said. Jeanne Ives, the former gubernatorial candidate and conservative who serves on the state party’s governing board, confirmed the group is more unified at the moment than it has been in recent years. “There’s a concerted team effort to turn the tide and make things better,” Ives said in a phone interview. Having a plan and the money to fund it “will help,” even in Illinois, she added.)

The nature of the event was fully explained to Mr. Vallas.” – SHIA KAPOS

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/01/dei_making_college_unaffordable.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I graduated from college in the 1980s. I took my bachelor’s degree in 2.5 years by taking overloads—up to 22 credits–every semester, and full loads every summer and interim session, as well as a number of correspondence courses from another university when I had to have a class that wasn’t offered when I needed it. At that state college, my education cost a bit less than $10,000. I was an adult, paying my own freight, and needed to get back into the workforce as quickly as possible. I took out no student loans. Tuition then was a fraction of current college tuition. That was in part possible because the school had only the administrators it needed. There was one registrar, one President, and only necessary additional administrators. They all had full time jobs with at least eight hours of daily work. Deans were working professors, and virtually every English and music class—my disciplines–was taught by a full professor. Every teacher at that school taught a full class load. There was no such thing as DEI, CRT or wokeness in general. That’s not the way of things now.)

ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— Legislators must act to address migrant crisis – State Sen. Andrew Chesney, R-Freeport
https://www.rrstar.com/story/opinion/columns/2024/01/20/your-turn-legislators-must-act-to-address-migrant-crisis/72268455007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the last 18 months, Gov. JB Pritzker has issued consecutive 30-day disaster proclamations for the State of Illinois as it relates to the migrant crisis and the hordes of non-citizens making their way to Illinois from the U.S. southern border. These orders grant him massive power to bypass the Legislature, a co-equal branch of government, and move and spend budget dollars how he sees fit. Indeed, Governor Pritzker and I do not agree on much, but we agree that the flood of migrants into Illinois is a crisis. When these people arrive, they need shelter, food, and often healthcare. Children must be enrolled in schools, and because they are primarily non-English-speaking, they require additional resources to help them learn. These things cost money and resources that most communities cannot spare. Every tax dollar that is diverted to fund the needs of migrants is a dollar that is siphoned away from Illinois citizens who are hungry, Illinois veterans who need help, Illinois citizens living with disabilities, and lower-income Illinois citizens who rely on their state government for essential services, like food on their table and a warm house in the winter. Governor Pritzker and the Mayor of Chicago are pointing fingers at border state governors and begging President Biden for financial assistance when they should be taking some responsibility for a crisis that is mainly of their own making. Illinois has rolled out the welcome mat to migrants and illegal immigrants. When you loudly proclaim that Illinois welcomes migrants and illegal immigrants regardless of their status, you shouldn’t be too surprised when they show up. Illinois became a de-facto Sanctuary State when majority party Democrats passed Senate Bill 31 in the 100th General Assembly (2017-2018). This law, named the “Trust Act,” prohibits Illinois law enforcement personnel from coordinating with federal immigration officials to enforce immigration laws. Then, in the 101st General Assembly (2019-2020), Democrats enacted laws that provide free health insurance, first for senior illegal immigrants, then for illegal immigrants aged 55-64, and ultimately for all illegal immigrants aged 52+. During this time, they also extended college tuition grants to illegal immigrants and tweaked court system procedures so that an individual’s immigration status could not be used against them. In the 102nd General Assembly (2021-2022), Medicaid coverage for illegal immigrants was expanded, and they became eligible for certain tax credits and state utility assistance programs. Both migrants and illegal immigrants were also provided with access to public defenders for immigration cases. In the current 103rd General Assembly, Democrats created a process for them to obtain driver’s licenses and housing assistance and provided a pathway for some migrants to become sworn police officers. Is it any wonder that Illinois is a premier destination state for the undocumented? I recently sent a survey to residents of the 45th District. It was sent with no regard to political affiliation. Republicans, Democrats, and Independents all received it. On the issue of support or non-support of free healthcare for illegal immigrants, as of January 1, 2024, a resounding 81.5% of all respondents said they were opposed to the State of Illinois providing free healthcare to those in this country illegally. It is time to unwind the policies that have made this state a destination for the undocumented, beginning with a full repeal of the Trust Act. Illegal immigration is just that — illegal. Law enforcement should be able to work with federal officials to enforce our immigration laws. Secondly, I recommend the elimination of free healthcare for migrants and illegal immigrants. Over 80% of the survey respondents in my district want this, so it is legislation I will be proud to carry. And lastly, we need to roll back the host of other policies mentioned above that have made Illinois a de-facto Sanctuary State and a destination for migrants and illegal immigrants. In my opinion, this is the most important issue facing lawmakers during the 2024 session, and I am willing to work with any legislator who wants to unwind bad policies and place our state back on a better path.)

Virtually all of them were female and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2024/01/20/college-essays-the-affirmative-action-workaround-n606296
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In short, students can still write essays about how race has factored into their lives but it has to be specific and not based on checking a box. Within days the Washington Post had published a story about how colleges were already planning to help educate prospective students about how to get around the new limitations on considering race directly in admissions. . .This of course assumed that students weren’t already well aware that the essays were the best chance they had to make race work for them. The NY Times had already published an account from a college professor who had spent his grad school years making side money by helping students with applications. He said the students already knew how the game worked. . .Students applying for top colleges aren’t dumb. And now that the rules have changed, they are still doing their best to work the system. . .This is exactly the sort of thing that everyone predicted would happen. College essays are now a back door for putting race front and center before admissions officers. The schools haven’t given up on race-conscious admissions, they are just doing their best to find a legal workaround that will allow them to generate the same outcome. Put another way, the same incentives and disincentives are still there depending on your race you just have to be a little more explicit about it to game the system these days.)

— University of Wisconsin Law School Forcing Students To Endure Racist DEI Reeducation. “This ‘DEI training’ is a form of indoctrination and demeans law students based on their race.” (COMMENT: My critics/opponents talk and act like they agree with the University of Wisconsin Law School. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents a) are/were rich, b) bought them cars, c) paid their colleges expenses, d) got them jobs, e) etc.)
https://legalinsurrection.com/2024/01/univ-wisconsin-law-school-forcing-students-to-endure-racist-dei-reeducation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In preparation for the session, law students are asked to study a description of “racist” behaviors, including the false claim that non-discrimination is “racist” and a collection of other assertions about “whites” and “people of color” that actually are racist. It would be one thing if the law school proposed an academic debate about such matters. But no one believes for one moment that’s what this session is about. This “DEI training” is a form of indoctrination and demeans law students based on their race. WILL strongly condemns this meeting’s proposed subject matter and demands that any racially discriminatory instruction be removed. By pushing racist ideology on law students, the University is defying federal law, creating a racially hostile environment, and harming individual student dignity. . .The attachments assert a racist view of the world and propagate harmful racial stereotypes. The materials assert the following claims: Only white people can be racist. Advocating for a “colorblind” society is racist and “negates” the “experiences of people of color.” It is racist to attack affirmative action. All white people experience “privilege based on your white skin color. You benefit from this system of oppression and advantage no matter what your intentions are.” White people have a “fear of people of color and what would happen if they gained control.” White people all are infected with “whiteness,” “white guilt,” “denial,” “fear,” and “privilege.” Ridding white people of “racist conditioning” “will never happen.” “There are no exceptional white people” such that all are tainted by skin color. “All white people are the “beneficiaries of racism and white privilege.” White people should never talk about their “own story of hardship” because it “diminishes the experiences of people of color.” All white people “attempt to excuse, defend or cover up racist actions of other white people.”)

POWER LINE
— THE DEEP MEANING OF DEI – SCOTT JOHNSON
https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2024/01/the-deep-meaning-of-dei.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College presidents, if they are not members of the Democratic Party, invariably come into office pledging to enlarge the diversity regime, which further cements the party–academic alliance. College faculties are overwhelmingly Democratic and progressive in their affiliations. College campuses are now a “base” of the Democratic Party. Academic administrators, of whom there are now many, are typically hired today to advance one or another aspect of the diversity regime. One will find few conservatives in faculty or administrative posts because they oppose the diversity regime, and so cannot be hired. It is hard to escape the conclusion that the DEI movement, in large part thanks to its alliance with the Democratic Party, has locked up control over America’s leading universities. The enterprise is especially influential not only because DEI is the official doctrine of the university, but also because it leans on powerful external allies in the Democratic Party. For that reason, it was shocking that a few outside critics should have been able to topple Ms. Gay while dishing out an embarrassing lesson to Harvard’s establishment. . .Ours is not the first country in which universities have fallen under control of political parties. The history of these kinds of relationships is far from benign. Nazi leaders in Germany targeted universities for control and used them to implement party policies and spread their malignant ideology. Many of these universities were among the finest in the world before the Nazis took over. Something similar happened in the Soviet Union, though there the universities were captured by Marxism–Leninism and the Communist Party. In neither country were speakers allowed to appear on university campuses to promote ideas in opposition to party dogmas. Authorities under those regimes did not appoint university heads on the basis of scholarly credentials but rather because of their loyalty to the party and its ideology. Everyone knows how those enterprises ended. Is it a good thing that American universities are controlled by the Democratic Party, and circulate its ideological dogmas? Obviously not—and for that reason universities and the diversity agenda will inevitably confront a political reckoning.)

https://www.tampabay.com/opinion/2024/01/19/build-wall-heres-why-immigrants-will-still-come-us-letters/
(FROM THE LETTER: You can build a wall, you can talk tough about immigrants “poisoning” our blood, but until you start going after American businesses, and their owners, for knowingly hiring millions of workers without documentation, not much will change. I’ve know many immigrants, documented and not, and every single one of them was here to work, and every single one of them found work. Illegal immigration will drop dramatically if E-Verify is required for every employer in the country, no wall needed. The flip side of this is we will then have a massive shortage of labor, as most Americans do not want to do the farm, hotel, restaurant and roofing/construction jobs that these immigrants do so well. Rarely do I hear politicians talk about the root causes of illegal immigration: terrible conditions in the immigrants’ country of origin combined with millions of available jobs here in the United States, happily given to them by American business owners. Any serious discussion of immigration must address these issues, with significant fines and/or jail time for hiring illegally, while simultaneously developing and expanding a robust guest worker visa program to accommodate, legally, the immigrants that will do the jobs Americans simply will not do.)

I am all of the aforesaid. I should write a book about Bowsher. Bowsher made the following worthless: a) my three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-business-1976, DePaul-accounting-1980, and IIT-finance-1997), b) my six job-related professional certifications (accounting-1979, internal auditing-1981, fraud examination-1990, government financial management-1994, financial services auditing-1996, and forensic accountiong-1997), and c) my job-related professional license (accounting-1981).)

REAL CLEAR EDUCATION
— Here’s How to Help First Generation Students – Scott Feller (COMMENT: I was a first generation student. Neither of my parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. Consequently, I had to work to have money to buy cars (1958 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint, 1968 Oldsmobile 442, and 1969 Dodge Charger SE) and to pay for college expenses (UIC 1966-1968 and NIU 1969-1970). I should write a book about my critics/opponents whose parents had college degrees, who had lots of money, who bought their children cars, who paid for their college expenses, who got them jobs, etc.)

TOWNHALL
— A Manifesto on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) – Jeff Utsch (COMMENT: Democrats and RINOs use DEI to get rid of Republicans.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/jeffutsch/2024/01/13/a-manifesto-on-diversity-equity-and-inclusion-dei-n2633581
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Toe the line or face backlash. That, sadly, is the position in which “woke” companies, employees, universities and faculty now find themselves. It’s time to write those statements or pay a price. The statement must fall in line, too, in helping define what is acceptable within the limits of their ideological sphere. That sphere, unfortunately, is not very large. Acceptable statements must bow to how The Left wants its DEI initiatives interpreted. Look up any number of DEI statements from companies you know, and you will find much of the following: Diversity must mean diversity based on race, skin color, sexual identity, sexual preference, etc. Equity must mean equality of outcome, or something is inherently biased or oppressive. Inclusion must mean everyone is included that agrees with their ideological bent. Excluded are those holding different opinions; they are from the oppressive class, a term defined by them, of course).
