DAILY HERALD
— Top Kane County GOP official calls election precinct redraw ‘a farce’ – James Fuller
(COMMENT: What have the following told your Republican Precinct Committeeman about the redraw: a) the chairman of your Republican township party organization, b) the chairman of your Republican county party organization, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, and d) the IRP chairman?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220107/top-kane-county-gop-official-calls-election-precinct-redraw-a-farce
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A behind-the-scenes process of redrawing election precincts in Kane County sparked concerns Friday about election integrity and what will be one of the shortest primary election campaign seasons in recent history. Recent state legislation approved in the wake of the decennial redistricting effort requires counties to redraw election precinct boundary lines by Jan. 15. The changes will affect every race on the 2022 ballot. New rules require precincts to sit within a single congressional and state legislative district whenever possible as well as a single county board district and municipal ward. Many counties regularly split or merge precincts to avoid them becoming too large or small for Democrat and Republican Party committeemen to properly represent constituents on partisan matters. Party committeemen are the foot soldiers of local political parties. The influence of those roles carries particular intrigue for local Republicans who are loyal to former President Donald Trump and continue to support the debunked claims of fraud in the 2020 election. The 2022 elections bring an opportunity for Trump loyalists to take control of the local party. Which voters live in which precincts will be a factor in that GOP battle. Kane County hasn’t adjusted its 291 precincts in nearly 20 years. That’s created 28 precincts that contain far more registered voters than the 1,200-voter cap target suggested by state legislation. Multiple precincts contain fewer than the 500 registered voters state law suggests is too small for a stand-alone precinct. A self-appointed team of workers in the county clerk’s office, information technology department, graphics information system staff, lawyers in the state’s attorney’s office and the chairman of the county board’s public service committee have spent the past several weeks redrawing the precinct boundaries. Kane County Board Chair Corinne Pierog has also been involved. She serves as vice chair of the Kane County Democrats. Except for Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham, who is a Republican, all the elected officials involved so far are Democrats. The public will get a look at the redrawn precincts on Tuesday. There will be a final vote on the remap Friday, one day before the state deadline. That’s not enough review or involvement in the process for several GOP members of the county board. “It’s a farce to suggest this committee has had any role or involvement in this at all,” said Ken Shepro, a county board member and chairman of the Kane County Republican Party. “No member of this committee has been asked to participate in any of these meetings or give any guidance.” Fellow Republican Tom Koppie said the process and the tight deadlines mean the county board will be “forced to accept maps generated by the bureaucracy.” “I do not believe this is what the voting public anticipated or expects,” Koppie said. Anita Lewis, a Democrat on the board who tends to side with Republicans, questioned the process. “And I’m not going to be able to say beyond a shadow of a doubt that everything was done right,” Lewis said. “I just don’t have that comfort level.” Even if the county board approves the new precinct boundaries next Friday, the county staff said it may take up until the first week of February to have maps paired with voter rolls that will allow candidates to collect accurate petition signatures. Petition filing for candidates seeking the top ballot spots is March 7. Candidates normally have 90 days to circulate petitions. Both county board members and the clerk’s office staff said they expect more petition challenges to kick candidates off the ballot because of the tight window and an increased likelihood of signatures from people who find themselves in different precincts.)

(COMMENT: Politics is nasty. Politics is vicious. When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete. She had inherited it from my father’s mother’s sister. The deed contains an offensive restrictive covenant. If I were to seek a political office again, including Republican Precinct Committeeman for DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization would a) stress to the voters in my precinct that I own half interest in land that has an offensive restrictive covenant and b) demand that my brother and I have that covenant removed. They would use the aforesaid to paint me, paint my brother, paint my parents, paint my grandparents, paint my great grandparents, and paint the rest of my ancestors as being racists and even worse things.)

(DIERSEN: Bob Dole walked in Wheaton’s 1996 Independence Day Parade with Jim Edgar. Dole spoke at a rally in Wheaton’s Memorial Park right after the parade. I camcorded his speech.

NEW YORK POST
— ‘Minority privilege’ now more common amid the growing ‘war on whiteness’ – Rav Arora
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors replaced me with my Black subordinate. In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. How soon, if not already, will your employer if you are still employed, the organizations that you are a member of, the governments that you are under, etc. officially announce that they getting rid of Whites once and for all, except those Whites who help them get rid of Whites? Of course, the first Whites to be gotten rid of are Whites who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about Whites who get rid of other Whites. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.)
https://nypost.com/2022/01/08/minority-privilege-is-now-more-common-than-white-privilege/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The left is furious about “white privilege.” And while it’s true white people have benefited from major advantages over time, it’s a concept that is rapidly fading — especially now, as the reverse is coming true. Minorities are increasingly becoming privileged while growing numbers of white people face discrimination. Diversity initiatives have been around for years, but over the past year and a half, innumerable companies and corporations have ramped up their efforts with the goal of “diversifying” their workforce. Tech giant Facebook, for example, has committed to half of its employees coming from “underrepresented communities” (i.e., black, Native American, and Hispanic) by 2023. Best Buy is hiring one person of color for every three new hires over the next five years. United Airlines has promised that at least half of the pilots they will train in the next decade will be women and “people of color” (currently, only 13 percent of pilots are people of color). In May, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot suddenly declared she will only give interviews to “journalists of color” — something that would be an impeachable offense if the situation was reversed (only giving interviews to “white journalists”). The push to promote people of color has become so pervasive that the most objective scientific institutions have seemingly become captive to woke ideology. For example, the NIH and CDC use taxpayer dollars to incentivize biomedical research labs to hire ethnic minorities because “research shows that diverse teams working together and capitalizing on innovative ideas and distinct perspectives outperform homogenous teams” — without quoting or citing any actual research. Minorities are now even advantaged when seeking medical treatment. Last week, the New York City and state departments of health authorized life-saving antiviral treatment for COVID-19 for everyone belonging to a “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity” regardless of risk factors, but for whites, only those with risk factors are allowed it. The DOH cites its rationale as: “longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.” Meanwhile, the rise of minority advantage has come with a parallel war on whiteness, especially in academia. In June, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association — “one of the world’s most respected publications in psychoanalysis” — printed a peer-reviewed paper entitled “On Having Whiteness.” The abstract of the paper describes “whiteness” as a “malignant, parasitic-like condition” requiring “effective treatment consist[ing] of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions.” It adds, “there is not yet a permanent cure.” There are real, accredited university courses that instruct anti-white racism: “Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness” (Arizona State University) and “Abolition of Whiteness” (Hunter College). Institutionalized anti-white bigotry has escalated to genocidal rhetoric. As Bari Weiss revealed in her recent Substack piece, Yale University hosted a lecture by Dr. Aruna Khilanani this year about the “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind,” where the speaker revealed her fantasies to kill white people. Other than university administrators later saying the lecture was found to have “tone and content antithetical to the values of the school,” the backlash was tempered. While social media erupted and Khilanani’s Manhattan-based practice is now closed for unknown reasons, she still has her license. One can only imagine the riotous demonstrations that would have reverberated across the country had Yale hosted a talk about “The Psychopathic Problem of the Black Mind.” The upshot is that pro-minority bias is not only permitted but socially incentivized. Employers, professors and administrators are lauded for implementing radical diversity initiatives. As minorities are preferentially hired across the board and given a host of other benefits by way of their genetic lottery, we must fundamentally reframe our discourse surrounding race relations. While “white privilege” may still exist in some margins of society, it no longer reflects the progressive era we live in.)

(COMMENT: All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany during the 1840s and 1850s. In their defense, they always lived in northeast Illinois. On my father’s side, my great great grandfather worked in a brick factory in Chicago 1844-1854 and then he homesteaded a farm in Crete in 1854. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a hardware store in Crete. My father worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. On my mother’s side, my great great grandfather was a sharecropper on a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated that farm. My mother was raised on that farm.)

https://www.military.com/daily-news/2022/01/07/army-officer-relieved-of-command-facing-discharge-over-racist-social-media-posts.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Spillane’s lawyer, Sean Timmons, managing partner with Tully Rinckey’s Houston office, agrees his client’s posts are indeed offensive, the discharge status raises the stakes — any status that isn’t honorable can have dire consequences for a veteran. So-called “bad paper” discharges can exclude a veteran from benefits, mostly the GI Bill; hurt employment opportunities; and overall leave the veteran with a stigma that’s difficult to shake off. Because of that, Timmons wants the Army to allow Spillane to leave with an honorable discharge.)

ALTON TELEGRAPH
— County board trims 34 precincts. State-required change will save election costs. – Scott Cousins
(COMMENT: I only learned of precinct consolidation in Illinois this morning. I erroneously relied on the following to advise me of such things: the DuPage County Election Division (DCED), my representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization. I understand that at its January 11, 2022 meeting, the DuPage County Board will vote to consolidate DuPage County’s 930 precincts into just 607, a loss of 323 precincts. That includes consolidating Milton Township’s 130 precincts into just 83, a loss of 47 precincts. I have asked DCED to email me the new map for Milton Township and the map for the new precinct that I am in. I should write a book about the 2015 Gerrymandering of my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton.)
https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Board-reduces-precincts-in-response-to-new-state-16729105.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Madison County Board has approved a new precinct map that reduces the number of precincts to 191 from the current 225. The board took the action after new state laws were signed in mid-November by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The changes were approved at a special Madison County Board meeting Thursday night. The new map was approved unanimously 21-0, with seven members absent, two participating remotely and one open seat. The changes are the last to be completed as part of the decennial census. In November the board approved a new Madison County Board district map cutting the board size by three to 26 members. “Reducing the total number of election precincts by consolidating 225 into 191 will save taxpayers 15 percent on every election held in Madison County,” said Madison County Board Member Chris Guy, R-Maryville, who chairs the Government Relations Committee. “Not only will a reduction result in cost-savings to the taxpayers, a reduction will also bring more efficiency and integrity to the election process.” The new law requires precincts to be “as near as may be practicable, 1,200 registered voters,” according to information provided by Guy. Prior to that the number was 500 registered voters per precinct. The new state law also requires precinct maps to be approved by Jan. 14, the day after candidates are allowed to begin collecting signatures to get on the 2022 ballot. The full county board took the precinct action after a special meeting by the Government Relations Committee, which approved the new precinct maps.)

— What top priorities do your critics/opponents have? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

All my critics/opponents have the following top priorities:


— Stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters, but failing that, stop everyone from reading those newsletters
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that they cannot manipulate/dominate, that refuse to glorify and praise them, that refuse to pander to them, that refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, that refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or that refuse to give them money
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that support planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment and/or equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving) planks

I should write a book about my critics/opponents and the success that they have had destroying the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, me, etc.

I would focus on my critics/opponents who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton

I would focus on those who succeeded last year in stopping me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

I would focus on the biggest hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.

IRS Revenue Officers enforce federal tax laws. IRS hired me as a GS-7 Step 1 (currently $49,738/year) Revenue Officer in 1971 when I was 22 years old because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. IRS promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. In 1980, when I was a GS-12 Step 5 (currently $88,229/year) Revenue Officer, I transferred to GAO. GAO audits IRS. My Democrat GAO superiors treated my knowledge of IRS as if it was worthless. I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned my IRS employment the most.)
