Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Don Tracy Ally Jeanne Ives Attacks Grassroots on Facebook as Powerful Voter Base Abandons Angry Radio Host (COMMENT: My critics/opponents a) oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee members and/or b) oppose conservative principles. They a) have always been angry about positive things that Ives has done for me including appointing me to the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee and b) have always been overjoyed about adverse actions that Ives has taken against me including removing me from that committee. Recently, one of my biggest critics/opponents threw my precinct letter in her trash. In that letter, I had announced that Ives had appointed me to the aforesaid committee.)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/don-tracy-ally-jeanne-ives-attacks-grassroots-on-facebook-as-powerful-voter-base-abandons-angry-radio-host.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Monday, Illinois Republican State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives – a close ally to embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy – went on Facebook to publicly slam her own constituents – the conservative grassroots base of the party – for emailing and asking about an incident that took place during the state convention – angrily posting, “canned emails get a canned response.” Earlier on Monday, the powerful and influential base of the Republican Party – the grassroots – sent emails to IL GOP leaders including Ives, asking why SSC member Mark Shaw – who was running for national committeeman – was spotted wearing a “delegate” badge during the state convention when he was not an actual delegate. As a delegate, Shaw could vote for himself for national committeeman – a vote that wouldn’t help, as he would lose the election in a landslide to the grassroots-backed candidate Dean White. But growing agitated by the influx of emails concerning Shaw, Ives decided to go on her Facebook page and post a comment that read, “You send a canned email, you get a canned response…at least I replied to your canned email.” The comment drew an immediate backlash as Republicans fired back calling Ives’ comment “ignorant” and “belittling” to the constituents she’s supposed to represent.)

It’s been described by one Chicago police official as bigger than the 2012 NATO Summit and 1996 Democratic National Convention. – Jon Seidel and Michael Puente (COMMENT: I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997. Between 1993 and 1997, they used forced early retirement to get rid of their employees who were eligible and were White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time and who they had not promoted to GS-15 (currently $160,458-$191,900/year). All my GAO coworkers who were eligible to take early retirement and who had the aforesaid demographics a) cut under-the-table deals with my Democrat GAO superiors to keep their jobs as long as possible and b) flushed me down their toilets.

— Here’s what to expect from Friday’s big jobs report – Jeff Cox (COMMENT: According to Democrat and RINO leaders, illegals are happy to take bad jobs that American citizens refuse to take. What bad jobs did you take? I did yard work 1962-1964, delivered newspapers 1962-1966, washed dishes 1964-1966, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, delivered mail 1966-1969, worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971, pumped gasoline 1971-1972, collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. I grant that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take any of the aforesaid bad jobs that I took. But the answer is not to import illegals to take bad jobs. From what I see, many, most, if not virtually all illegals a) would not stoop to take the bad jobs that I took and/or are not qualified to take the bad jobs that I took.)

— ‘All soldiers remember their old battlefield.’ – Retired Major General John L. Borling Reflects on the 80th D-Day Anniversary on the Steve Cochran Show (COMMENT: Borling ran against the following in the 2004 Illinois Republican U.S. Senate primary: Jack Ryan, Jim Oberweis, Steve Rauschenberger, Andrew McKenna, Chirinjeev Kathuria, Jonathan C. Wright, and Norm Hill. I remember the primary like it was yesterday. I conducted a major straw poll at the 2003 Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) fundraiser in which more than 400 voted. Ryan won that straw poll. At the time, I was the MTRO webmaster and an officer of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition. Ryan won the primary, but then withdrew. The Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee replaced Ryan with Alan Keyes. Keyes lost to Obama. Obama then on when on to become President. Of course, my critics/opponents continue blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for the all of the aforesaid. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I rigged the MTRO straw poll for Ryan to win. In addition, they continue to blame me and blame my newsletters for Jim Ryan losing to Blagojevich in 2002. They stress that I supported Pat O’Malley in that primary. Constructively, increasingly, my critics/opponents blame me and blame my newsletters for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. Should I start writing about my critics/opponents?)

— Texas Democrats begin state convention in familiar position: out of power but hopeful – Gromer Jeffers Jr. (COMMENT: What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?)
https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2024/06/07/texas-democrats-begin-state-convention-in-familiar-position-out-of-power-but-hopeful/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Texas Democrats haven’t won a statewide election since 1994, putting them on the sidelines while Republicans have passed laws and implemented policies reflecting an increasingly conservative agenda. . .Lisa Turner, state director of the Democratic research group Lone Star Project, said Democrats should contrast themselves with Republicans, who last month approved a party platform that classifies abortion as homicide, seeks to ban transgender teachers in public schools and supports refusing birth certificates for children born to undocumented parents. “That is just otherworldly. It’s beyond MAGA crazy,” Turner said. “It’s really important that the party highlight our differences with Republicans, and they’ve never been clearer as to what it means for Texans. Our tagline as Democrats should be: ‘Join us. We’re the normal people party.’” Texas Republican Party Chairman Abraham George said his party better reflects the values of Texas voters, while state Democrats are weighed down by the policies of President Joe Biden. “From Joe Biden to the horrible economy and the open borders, the Texas Democrat Party is showing the signs that it isn’t with the people of Texas,” he said. The GOP platform, George said, was tough on issues like abortion but captured the mood of most Texas voters. “Those are values that average Texans will align with, regardless of their policies and politics,” he said. Democrats disagree, and they see an opening to reach voters. “Republicans have basically vacated the field on common-sense policies,” said state Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas. “If Democrats would pledge to run the state like a Fortune 500 company, we would be making so much more progress than Republicans are today.” . . . Democrats say they need to craft better a message to voters. In doing so, they want to steer away from culture war talking points and focus on bread and butter issues, including education, transportation, water, health care and the economy.

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-LEFT SOURCES

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Illinois Republicans slam Trump conviction. ‘Stalin would be proud’ said state Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich. Even more moderate Illinois Republicans who don’t support the former president said they were “troubled” by the case that resulted in a conviction on 34 felony counts in New York. – Mitchell Armentrout
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2024/05/31/donald-trump-hush-money-conviction-illinois-republicans-reaction
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a state where Donald Trump has divided many Republicans, Illinois GOP leaders were united in their condemnation of the former president’s conviction for falsifying business records, blasting what they deemed a “sham trial,” a “fraud case” — and downright “chicken s—.” Soon after a New York jury on Thursday found the presumptive GOP presidential nominee guilty in a hush-money case, Illinois Republican Party chairman Don Tracy called it “a political prosecution the likes of which occur in banana republics but not previously in these United States.” “Democrat activist investigators and prosecutors have relentlessly hounded President Trump for years,” Tracy said in a statement. “This weaponization of the judicial system has weakened our country here and in the eyes of the world, which I’m sure President Biden will savor while he vacations in Delaware as his handlers make critical decisions for the country.” Illinois Republican National Committee member Richard Porter, who has criticized Trump — and who backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the GOP presidential primary — accused Democrats of “perverting the judicial system for political purposes.” “Everyone sees what happened in Manhattan, the second most Democrat county in the nation — where Democrat prosecutors are trying to take his money, with a fraud case in which no one was defrauded, and take his liberty with a criminal case in which no crime was committed,” Porter said in an email. “It’s just another example of how Democrats turn all institutions against the people they are supposed to be serving. Democrats will rue the day that they chose this path,” he said, suggesting President Joe Biden could face prosecution down the line. “There are many, many more Republican county prosecutors than Democrat county prosecutors across the country, and they are watching what the New York County district attorney did and are taking notes,” Porter said. “Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, too.” How will the Biden campaign exploit the Trump hush money guilty verdict? Even self-declared “Never-Trump” Illinois Republicans slammed the verdict, including former Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, who said he was “troubled by how this case was charged.” “People in Manhattan were looking for a reason to convict. He was low-hanging fruit, based on electoral results in that area,” Durkin said, adding that he thought the case should have been brought to election authorities, not a criminal court. “It’s easy to dislike Donald Trump… But I also have respect for the way the justice system is applied, and I thought this was an egregious example of selective prosecution by the Manhattan district attorney,” Durkin said. “Now he can say he got a conviction on Donald Trump. I’m still not sure what crime it was.” The barbs were even sharper from Republicans downstate, where Trump remains immensely popular outside the solid blue Chicago area. “Joseph Stalin would be proud,” said state Rep. Adam Niemerg, R-Dieterich, a member of the far-right Illinois Freedom Caucus of the General Assembly. “The Democrats have shown that they cannot be trusted to be anywhere near power. They must be stopped and the only way to do that is for Donald Trump to win in a landslide in November.” Fellow Freedom Caucus Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, bemoaned “the trampling of our Constitution by the worst people imaginable.” “The same people who allow criminals to murder, rape, and commit unspeakable acts of violence have the audacity to prosecute a former President of the country,” Wilhour said in a statement. “The American people see right through this, and they will come out in huge numbers to vote for President Trump because they understand the battle facing us is not one of politics and political disagreement — it is truly good versus evil.” Former gubernatorial and congressional candidate Darren Bailey — and a former Freedom Caucus member until he gave up his southern Illinois state Senate seat — exclaimed on social media: “I don’t cuss, but this is chicken s—!” Rep. Mike Bost, a staunch Trump supporter who beat Bailey as GOP nominee for the 12th Congressional District, said “New York’s six-week sham trial against President Trump has eroded the public’s trust in our legal system in a way that will take years to overcome… Even after today’s verdict, he is strengthened with an American public that is fed up with liberals weaponizing the legal system for their partisan political gain.” Rep. Darin LaHood, the central Illinois congressman who has periodically criticized Trump but endorsed his 2024 comeback bid, said, “This political prosecution undermines the rule of law and faith in our justice system. It should be overturned on appeal.” LaHood is hosting House Speaker Mike Johnson Saturday at the Peoria-Tazewell Lincoln Day Dinner, a marquee event on the state GOP calendar. “This was a purely political exercise, not a legal one,” Johnson said in a statement. “President Trump will rightfully appeal this absurd verdict—and he WILL WIN.”)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: Not surprisingly, suburban political leaders divided on Trump verdict – Russell Lissau
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240531/nation-and-world-politics/not-surprisingly-suburban-political-leaders-divided-on-trump-verdict/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Across the aisle, Will County Republican Party Chair Christina Clausen defended Trump and said the verdict “represents a profound crisis for our democratic process.” Clausen, of Homer Glen, alleged the trial was unfair and said the verdict interferes with the upcoming presidential election.
“It is deeply troubling that, despite living in what many consider the most free and fair society in history, a judge and prosecutor in New York City can wrongfully condemn and imprison one of our nation’s greatest presidents,” said Clausen, overlooking that a jury handed down the verdict. “I stand firmly with Donald Trump during these challenging times and hope that justice will prevail, demonstrating his innocence to the world.” Republican congressional candidate Mark Rice of Chicago, who’s challenging Democratic U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi of Schaumburg in the entirely suburban 8th District, said he expects the verdict will be overturned by an appellate court. “What a farce,” Rice said Friday in a Facebook post. . .In a statement on social media, Seth Cohen, a Skokie resident and the GOP’s nominee for Illinois’ 9th Congressional District seat, supported “the role and authority” of the justice system while “respectfully” disagreeing with the verdict. Cohen also said he opposes the weaponization of the system by members of either major political party. Cohen is vying to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky in the 9th District, which includes parts of Cook, Lake and McHenry counties. . .Republican state Rep. Martin McLaughlin of Barrington Hills turned to social media after the verdict, posting a photo of the U.S. flag displayed outside his office and a jab at the people of New York City. “I left the office flag flying high and proud,” wrote McLaughlin, of the 52nd District. “Thankfully there are still a lot of ‘Old Souls’ still present in our Great Nation if not in Manhattan. Blue skies ahead.”)

MSNBC
— Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters say “The Texas GOP’s new platform is a terrifying preview of MAGA’s future. There are many, many horrors to behold in the latest platform.” Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions have never been anywhere near as conservative as the Texas GOP platforms and resolutions. But nevertheless, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents and Independent plants, and RINOs who run Republican organizations in Illinois have always a) demonized, denigrated, and condemned Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions as being too conservative and b) blamed Illinois GOP platforms and resolutions for Republican defeats.
https://www.msnbc.com/opinion/msnbc-opinion/texas-republican-party-platform-trump-rcna154805
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now, their latest platform, which delegates voted on last weekend, endorses the conspiracist “great reset” theory, declares that “abortion is not health care, it is homicide,” and calls for a new election law requiring candidates running for statewide offices to win a majority of Texas’ 254 counties, effectively barring any Democrat from the position. And that’s just the start. Yet the chief politics reporter for the Austin American Statesman just called the platform “more of a wish list for the most activist members of the GOP than a road map that will be followed to the letter by lawmakers in Austin or Washington.” Even the Texas Tribune’s otherwise thoughtful, comprehensive reporting on the convention describes the party platform as “traditionally … seen not as a definitive list of Republican stances, but a compromise document that represents the interests of the party’s various business, activist and social conservative factions.” . . . There are many, many horrors to behold in the latest platform, and they must be taken seriously not in spite of how terrifying the document is, but because of how terrifying the document is. It is because the latest Texas GOP platform endorses “prohibiting the teaching of sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity” that we should take it seriously. It is because the platform equates abortion and murder that we should take it seriously. It is because the platform aims to ban any Democrat — and indeed, any noncompliant Republican — from ever holding statewide office, that we should take it seriously.)

He disapproved of my having avoided the Vietnam War draft, my having more education than he did, my having been a federal employee for almost 3 years, my being Protestant, my being German American, and my ancestors having been in America for a long time. In 1980, when I transferred from IRS to GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors were furious that they could just fire me because I had already passed the federal employee probationary period while I worked for IRS.)

During that time, I bought a new Corvette, a new town home, and a studio condo and I completed 12 graduate evening business courses at Loyola. But then my Democrat IRS superiors got rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. Then the good old days for me were 1986-1988 when the GAO manager who had arranged my transfer from IRS in 1980 was finally able to get me assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986 and to promote me to GS-13 (currently $115,439/year) in 1986. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $123,136/year in 1988. But then my Democrat GAO superiors got rid of him.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Illinois Republicans anxiously await the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) a) to issue a detailed press release on its State Convention and b) to post on its website its new platform and its 12 new resolutions. Those who dominate the IRP oppose direct election of IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members, oppose Dean White, and oppose conservative principles. Anticipate/expect that those who dominate the IRP will not only ignore/dismiss/belittle the party’s new platform and resolutions, they will get rid of IRP SCC members, county party leaders, township/ward party leaders, precinct committeemen/captains, voters, and everyone else a) who want direct election of IRP SCC members, who support Dean White, and/or who promote conservative principles. Conservatives overwhelmingly want direct election of IRP SCC members. Who were the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee members who stated that they are conservative but voted against direct election? I have promoted direct election of IRP SCC members and conservative principles, that is, the Republican Party platform, big time since 2000. Since 2000, party leaders who oppose direct election of IRP SCC members and/or oppose conservative principles have taken many big adverse actions against me because of that. I should write a book about that. – Dave Diersen

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— Thank you to Richard Porter and Demetra DeMonte for all of your hard work as Illinois’ RNC Representatives! We are excited to welcome Rhonda Belford and Dean White as our new representatives!

JOHN ZAHM
— Getting your own house in order. Some people came to Collinsville to the Illinois Republican Party Convention to limit grassroots Republicans voice and influence in the party. Others came to take selfies and pump up the appearance of their influence. Others cut deals to acquire positions and titles to benefit themselves. Daniel R. Zahm and I attended the Convention laser-focused on supporting policies and people who would represent grassroots conservative values and real reform for the Republican Party. After witnessing Committee Reports that had predetermined outcomes, and little substantive debate and discussion, we doubled down on our efforts promoting a great grassroots conservative leader Dean R. White – Illinois Republican State Central Committee. Insider party bosses like Laura Pollastrini and Larry Smith fought tooth and nail to defeat Dean. They supported and used rules and technicalities to make the process of overturning the National Committeeman-National Committeewoman vote of 10 people for Mark Shaw carry the weight over 494 Delegates nearly impossible. We would not stand for it and took the route of defeating the Committee report on the floor since they would not allow us to have a new vote on the floor between Shaw and White. In the end we succeeded. It was a team effort bringing together a group of just over 300 delegates who would not waver in the face of threats, demands, and insults. One HUGE victory. But many more to go. Many more stories to share. Patriots to thank. Bad actors to call out. But let’s start with this one right here. (Photo with Dean right after the victory).

DOUG IBENDAHL
— Rank-And-File outsmart Pompous Pooh-Bahs at IL GOP state convention (COMMENT: Far too many “Republican” party leaders and precinct committeemen are acting like they would rather see Biden elected than Trump. How many of them boycotted the Illinois Republican Party State Convention in Collinsville?)
https://dougelstonibendahl.substack.com/p/rank-and-file-outsmart-pompous-pooh
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This state convention was the most shamefully rigged and disrespectful to the Republican rank-and-file I’ve seen yet in the nearly 30 years I’ve been paying attention to this stuff. And I have always been the first to acknowledge there were certainly problems when I was the state party’s lawyer 25 years ago. But I learn from experience and when I see things are infinitely worse today, I work for meaningful positive change. I don’t double-down on a failed system which the average 5-year old can see has been a catastrophic disaster for the Illinois GOP. Unfortunately, that is not yet an attitude universally shared. And we’re now to the point where dishonesty, self-dealing and unprofessionalism are officially off the charts. And it all centers around a desperate desire by the pooh-bahs to keep the rank-and-file disenfranchised and voiceless in their own state party. The lengths some on the state central committee (SCC) and their bootlicks have been willing to go to keep Republicans from having a vote again has a lot of people scratching their heads. . .Meanwhile, my strong hunch is that the party pooh-bahs are taking no positive lessons from the clock-cleaning regular Republicans delivered on Saturday. If anything, the pooh-bahs are kicking themselves for leaving even a crack in the door which allowed the Republican rank-and-file to have ANY voice at this convention. They aren’t planning to loosen the rules, they’re surely planning to make them even MORE restrictive next time. Not sure that would even be possible, but if there is a way to further squelch the voice of their constituents, I’m sure they’ll find it. It’s about all they do. Anyone who still doesn’t understand why our vote must be restored for our state party’s central committee, the governing board, really needs to do us all a favor and find a new hobby. I mean come on, seriously, no one can truly be that oblivious.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Grassroots Dominate IL GOP State Convention and Expand Influence as State Party Leaders Lose Their Cool (COMMENT: Far too many “Republican” party leaders and precinct committeemen are acting like they would rather see Biden elected than Trump. How many of them boycotted the Illinois Republican Party State Convention in Collinsville?)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/05/grassroots-dominate-il-gop-state-convention-and-expand-influence-as-state-party-leaders-lose-their-cool.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Saturday, the influential conservative grassroots base of the Illinois Republican Party scored major victories during the GOP State Convention in Collinsville – as delegates from across the state elected Dean White as the new Republican national committeeman and Donald Trump-endorsed U.S. Rep. Mary Miller, (IL-15) as the Illinois Delegation Chair to nominate President Trump at the RNC Convention in Milwaukee. The state convention did not lack drama, as state party officials tried their best to maintain power and protect their own establishment-supported candidates. . .But the drama was not over as late Friday night, embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy withdrew himself from the running to be the Illinois Delegation Chair to nominate President Donald Trump at the RNC Convention in Milwaukee, after realizing that the room full of delegates was not on his side. Tracy then supported Miller, who is grassroots and a crowd favorite who was endorsed by President Trump in her re-election to Congress, in her bid to become the delegation chair. Rhonda Belford was also elected as the new RNC National Committeewoman. Many IL GOP officials continue to blame this publication for publishing articles critical of the establishment-base of the party – and that anger towards Illinois Review was on full display during the convention.)

— QUESTION: What do Democrat employers do to hire, retain, and promote Democrats who are minority and/or female? ANSWER: They lower hiring, retention, and promotion requirements. While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years, they ever-increasingly lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements. That ever-increasingly rendered worthless my job-related a) bachelor’s degree (1970), b) three master’s degrees (1976, 1980, and 1997), c) six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and d) professional license (1981). I should write a book about the aforesaid. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— GOP UNITY: The Illinois Republican Party is holding its state convention today and Saturday in the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. After eight years of divisiveness among the rank and file, party leaders hope to emerge united as they head into election season. No matter where they stand on Donald Trump, they agree on wanting to make Joe Biden a one-term president. “We’re at a pivotal point where you’re seeing Republicans starting to get back together,” Illinois GOP Executive Director Matthew Janes told Playbook. “You’re seeing a lot more unity recently.” The Illinois GOP has evolved much the way the national Republican party has, with right-leaning Republicans veering more right and centrists somehow being seen as being left on party issues. In Illinois, the shift has been geographic. In 2014, the Republican base was strong in Chicago’s suburbs and exurbs, while southern Illinois still saw Democrats have an influence in party politics. That’s all shifted: When Trump came on the scene, rural voters were drawn to his blue collar message and there was a shift in the state party’s cultural and economic bases. Chicago-area Republicans weren’t always in line with Trump. And many still aren’t. Embracing Trump: Illinois GOP National Committeeman Richard Porter was among those hoping to see a new Republican generation in the White House. He backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president. Now, he says he’s most concerned about taking back the White House from Democrats. “I am for winning. Trump is our nominee and the Democrats have behaved appallingly in regard to Trump so it’s not hard to support him,” Porter told Playbook, referring to the former president’s recent court fight in New York. That attitude is expected to prevail in Collinsville this weekend, where the biggest task is to line up behind a party platform and elect a new Republican committee man and committee woman to represent the state within the national Republican Convention (The party elects one man and one woman to those seats.). Why the change: Term limits are keeping Porter and Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte from running again. They have each served two terms. In the running for their seats: GOP state central committee members Mark Shaw and Dean White and Illinois Republican Finance Committee Chair Vince Kolber. Shaw is also an Illinois adviser to Trump’s campaign. Women candidates are State Central Committee members Joan Lasonde and Rhonda Belford, and former Republican legislative candidate Julie Cho. All of the candidates are right-leaning, Trump-supporting Republicans. If you are Demetra DeMonte, Playbook would like to hear from you. Email skapos@politico.com )

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Trump putting his finger on the scale to revamp GOP platform four years after it froze in time – Elaine Mallon (COMMENT: Those who oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a far-right conservative. Since 2015, they have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a Trump-promoter. I should write a book about those who oppose direct elect election of IRP SCC members and who oppose Trump and who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/presidential/3015947/trump-revamp-gop-platform-after-it-froze-in-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump campaign is pushing to elect those closely aligned with the presumptive presidential nominee’s agenda to positions on the Republican National Committee‘s Platform Committee. Much of this effort by former President Donald Trump’s campaign relates to concerns that far-right conservatives will push stances on abortion and same-sex marriage that may alienate the general population just ahead of the general election. The RNC’s Platform Committee consists of a male and a female representative from each U.S. state and territory, and it will play an instrumental role in shaping the party’s stances on dozens of policy issues. The party’s current platform is a 66-page document that hasn’t been reviewed since the 2016 election. In 2020, the RNC passed a resolution stating it would not adopt a new platform, pointing to the COVID-19 pandemic interfering with the party’s ability to hold meetings. That year marked the first time in more than 150 years that the RNC decided not to make adjustments to its official platform, per NBC News. Shiree Verdone served as co-chairwoman of Trump’s campaign in Arizona in both 2016 and 2020 but is no longer involved with the Republican Party of Arizona. She told the outlet that Trump’s team is concerned about who is getting on the party’s platform committee. “Trying to get normal folks on the Platform and Rules [committees], but God knows if there’s any normal people in that delegation,” Verdone said. The committee’s leadership consists of strong Trump supporters, including Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg, Randy Evans, who will serve as executive director. Russ Vought, Trump’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, will serve as policy director, and Ed Martin, the head of several conservative groups, will serve as deputy policy director. “The campaign is really getting into it and involved this year in [Platform Committee] races in states,” a veteran Republican operative told the outlet. “There is a sense among them that the platform should not be pushed too far to the right on a few issues, but I keep hearing abortion and marriage specifically.” While far-right conservatives have called for a national ban on abortion, Trump has been steadfast in his stance that the matter will be left up to the states. “I DO NOT SUPPORT A BAN ON BIRTH CONTROL, AND NEITHER WILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!” Trump declared on Truth Social.)

— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What do you hope that Illinois Republican Party (IRP) leaders will stress at their State Convention in Collinsville May 24-25? I hope that they will stress defending and advancing the Republican Party platform, and especially its personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I hope that they will stress direct election of IRP State Central Committee members. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— On Saturday, May 25, 2024, delegates to the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention in Collinsville will be asked to vote on a new IRP platform and a new set of resolutions. But so far, the IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee has not provided delegates with drafts of the aforesaid. If I had not been removed from the committee because of my calling for strengthening the platform, including calling for E-Verify, and because of my calling for direct election of IRP State Central Committee members, I would have called for the committee to provide delegates with drafts of the new draft platform and the new draft set of resolutions by now. Further, I would have called for the IRP to provide delegates with a detailed agenda for the convention’s May 25 general session by now. – Dave Diersen

MRC TV & NEWS BUSTERS
— MSNBC’s host Joy Reid pounced on a since-deleted video posted to former President Trump’s Truth Social account. The video – made by a third party – briefly flashed the words “unified Reich” in a series of newspaper clippings. Reid characterized the post as a definitive representation of Trump’s fascist views, and ridiculously suggested that no one in the media was talking about it and that no one was calling him a Nazi. In addition, she repeatedly referenced several fascist leaders, especially Adolf Hitler, and accused other conservatives of relentlessly promoting fascist thought through their opinions and policies. After playing the now-deleted campaign ad, Reid ridiculously proclaimed: “As per usual, much of the media is downplaying the fact that the Republican nominee is once again using Nazi language.” She drew attention to some of Trump’s associations and past comments, claiming they indubitably prove he was just like Hitler. She even said, “Donald Trump was proud that someone once compared him to Adolf Hitler.” The someone Reid referred to was former German Chancellor Angela Merkel who once praised Trump’s ability to attract large crowds. – Michael Wnek (COMMENT: Because of the path that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters are ever-increasingly taking, anticipate/expect that if you do not share their hatred against Trump, that the more demographics that you share with Trump, that the more that they will call you a Nazi.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION
— Rebuilding the Illinois GOP – Jon A. Zahm
https://illinoisfamilyaction.org/2024/05/rebuilding-the-illinois-rebuilding-the-illinois-gop-2024/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: By Allowing EVERY GOP Primary Voter an Equal Vote for Party Leadership When you donate money to the Illinois Republican Party to fight back against President Joe Biden, Governor JB Pritzker, and the supermajority of liberal Democrats in both chambers of the General Assembly, how are the funds spent? It is up to a 17-member governing board, the State Central Committee (SCC), one person from each Congressional District chosen by party insiders ranging from Precinct Committeemen to Township Committeemen to County Chairmen. These 17 then elect a State Party Chairman and also control which staff is hired and which political consultants and vendors receive lucrative contracts. And this small group of 17 determines the policies, issues, and communications that go out under the Party name. They act similar to a company’s board of directors. By contrast, every Democrat voter votes directly for their State Central Committeeman. And they have been beating us consistently in elections since 1986 when a few party bosses, like now-disgraced Speaker Dennis Hastert and RINO IL House Minority Leader Lee Daniels conspired to change the rules and limit grassroots voting rights. Only Precinct Committeemen in Illinois, under the current rules, can vote. Not a single Republican voter within that precinct is allowed to vote on those who make up the powerful State Central Committee. That must change. What about all the other good Republicans who live in those precincts? They are disenfranchised. No vote for them for SCC. If a company refused to allow their shareholders/stakeholders to vote on who the Board of Directors are, they would be sanctioned and even jailed. (From IbendahlonPolitics.com) Our Party currently operates this inside-deal system that lacks transparency and does not respect the people who make up their broad base. Those who work hard, raise their families, and pay taxes – the same good folks who don’t always have the time to do a lot of local politics. I first got involved as a leader of this movement when my mentor, former State Senator and current Kane County Treasurer, Chris Lauzen, introduced Senate Bill 600 in 2009 to reform a party then dominated by corrupt power players like Gov. George Ryan. It passed 44-13 only to die in the Illinois House where later convicted fixer Mike Madigan, and Tom Cross, made sure it did not get a vote. Don’t let our vote on this be taken away forever. Stand for Reform. Stand for Principle. Stand for an open party that welcomes people who identify as Republicans. Do the right thing. Everyone should have one vote. That is the American and Constitutional way. This is the Resolution that will be considered this Friday, May 24th, at 10 AM by the Platform and Resolutions Committee at the 2024 IL GOP Convention in Collinsville. We ask each member to endorse this, or, if not, at least vote it to the Convention Floor so all delegates in attendance can have a say-so. To add your name and title to our list as a supporter please send me an email to goliathslayers@gmail.com. The decision on Direct Elections will be made Saturday, May 25. The 25th new name I receive will be thanked by me making a $25 donation to the charity of their choice. I can also be texted/called at 630-946-8683 (630-WIN-VOTE). My main page is Jon A Zahm on Facebook. Click HERE for a growing list of Republican and conservative organizations who have endorsed the Resolution to give every Republican primary voter a right to vote for Party leadership. If passed, this will occur every 4 years beginning in March of 2026 on the Republican Primary ballot. Each of the 17 Congressional Districts will elect one man or one woman for these important party posts that decide how to spend party dollars, how to win elections and how to help all Republicans win. IFA’s devoted and excellent leader David E. Smith is a longtime supporter of Direct Elections. Thank you and May God Bless You!)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— What You Need to Know Before the Illinois GOP Convention – Thomas Mccullagh
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/05/what-you-need-to-know-before-the-illinois-gop-convention.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois State Republican Convention is fast approaching, set to take place on Friday, May 24, and Saturday, May 25, at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville, IL. This event will gather Republicans from across the state for networking, socializing, training, and learning opportunities. However, beyond these activities, the convention holds significant importance as it offers delegates a unique opportunity to influence the direction of the party for the next four years. The main tasks will include adopting a new platform and electing Illinois representatives to the Republican National Committee (RNC). Understanding the rules and mechanics of the convention is vital for those attending. The opportunity for grassroots participants and delegates to impact the party’s direction is scheduled for only 3.5 hours on Saturday afternoon. This brief window makes it essential for delegates to be well-versed in the rules. Without this knowledge, decisions about the platform and the selection of RNC members could be dominated by those who wrote the rules, rather than by the delegates themselves. The first order of business at the convention will be adopting the Rules of Order. These rules are crucial as they determine how officers are nominated and elected, how the platform is approved and adopted, and much more. Essentially, the adopted rules will decide who gets their voices heard and who has the power to influence key decisions. Prior to the convention, several committees controlled by the State Central Committee will meet to propose rules. These committees are tasked with various responsibilities and include the Convention Committee on Credentials, the Convention Committee on Platform and Resolutions, the Convention Committee on Rules and Procedures, the Convention Committee on Arrangements, the Convention Committee on At-Large Delegates and Alternates, the Convention Committee on Presidential Electors, and the Convention Committee to Nominate National Committeeman and National Committeewoman. Among these, the committees on Platform and Resolutions, Rules and Procedures, and Nominations are particularly influential. They will establish the platform, propose the rules of the convention, and nominate members to the RNC. When the convention begins, the first task will be to adopt the rules proposed by the Rules and Procedures committee. This step is critical because it sets the framework for how the rest of the convention will operate. For delegates who wish to challenge the proposed rules, the time to act is when the convention is called to order. According to the current bylaws of the Illinois Republican Party ( https://illinois.gop/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/Amended-Bylaws-as-approved-April-25-2020.pdf ), specifically Articles VI and VII, the convention itself has the authority to set its own rules. This means that unless delegates propose and adopt alternate rules at the opening of the convention, the rules proposed by the Rules and Procedures committee will be enacted. These rules will then govern the adoption of the platform and the nomination and election of members to the RNC. Per Article VII (H) of the bylaws, the proposed convention rules must be published on the Illinois Republican Party website and made available in printed form to each delegation chair forty-eight hours before the convention opens. With the general business session starting at 11:30 AM on Saturday, the rules should be published by 11:30 AM on Thursday. Delegates must review these rules ahead of time to be prepared to propose alternatives if necessary. Being familiar with the proposed rules is imperative for any delegate wishing to make an impact. Grassroots delegates who want to influence the convention must be well-prepared and informed about the proposed rules. The convention’s first order of business is to adopt these rules, so understanding and being ready to discuss them is crucial. Without this preparation, the rules will likely be set by the State Central Committee, potentially advancing their agenda over that of the delegates. Delegates are encouraged to read the bylaws and consult Robert’s Rules on Rules of Order for Conventions and on Nominations. Understanding these rules ensures that all voices can be heard and that the convention’s outcomes reflect the wishes of the delegates. The Convention Committee on Credentials verifies the credentials of all delegates and alternates, ensuring that those participating in the convention are duly authorized representatives. The Convention Committee on Platform and Resolutions is responsible for drafting and proposing the party platform and any resolutions. The platform outlines the party’s principles and policy positions. The Convention Committee on Rules and Procedures proposes the rules that will govern the convention’s operations. These rules will dictate how the convention is conducted, including how votes are taken and how debates are managed. The Convention Committee on Arrangements handles the logistical aspects of the convention, including venue setup, scheduling, and ensuring that all necessary materials and resources are available. The Convention Committee on At-Large Delegates and Alternates selects delegates and alternates who will represent Illinois at the national level. The Convention Committee on Presidential Electors nominates individuals who will serve as electors in the Electoral College should the party’s presidential candidate win the general election in Illinois. The Convention Committee to Nominate National Committeeman and National Committeewoman nominates candidates for Illinois’ representatives to the Republican National Committee. To effectively participate in the convention, delegates should take several preparatory steps. Reviewing the bylaws is essential as they provide the framework for the convention. Familiarizing oneself with these bylaws, particularly Articles VI and VII, is crucial. Understanding Robert’s Rules is also important as they provide the procedural basis for conducting meetings and making decisions. Delegates should understand these rules to effectively navigate the convention’s proceedings. Staying informed is another critical step. The proposed rules will be published on the Illinois Republican Party website, and delegates should review these rules as soon as they are available to be prepared to propose any necessary changes. Engaging with other delegates before and during the convention can help build coalitions and gather support for proposed rule changes or platform amendments. The Illinois State Republican Convention is a pivotal event for party members. It provides a rare opportunity to shape the party’s future direction. However, to make the most of this opportunity, delegates must be well-prepared and informed about the convention’s rules and procedures. By understanding and being ready to engage with the rules, delegates can ensure that their voices are heard and that the convention’s outcomes reflect their collective will. This preparation will help ensure a fair and democratic process that truly represents the interests of all participants.)

I could not run because I had a bone disease, my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, and I had partial re/green color blindness. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Which candidates on ballots in your precinct have you done the most to help elect? I should write a book about the candidates on ballots in my precinct who I have done the most to help elect since 2000. I would focus on a) the signatures that I got for them for their nominating petitions, b) the sign locations that I got for them, c) their campaign literature that I distributed for them, and d) the promotion that I gave their fundraisers. I would focus on the aforesaid who have blamed me and have blamed my GOPUSA newsletters the most for their not getting as many votes as they expected and/or for their defeats. I would focus on the aforesaid who are taking and have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Should I write about my critics/opponents who do bad things that get into the public record and then punish me for my not covering that up? According to Wikipedia, “A cover-up is an attempt, whether successful or not, to conceal evidence of wrongdoing, error, incompetence, or other embarrassing information. Research has distinguished personal cover-ups (covering up one’s own misdeeds) from relational cover-ups (covering up someone else’s misdeeds). The expression is usually applied to people in positions of authority who abuse power to avoid or silence criticism or to deflect guilt of wrongdoing. Perpetrators of a cover-up (initiators or their allies) may be responsible for a misdeed, a breach of trust or duty, or a crime.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover-up – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Should I write about my critics/opponents who are the most nasty/vicious? I would focus on those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who use their operatives and their dupes do their dirty work. – Dave Diersen

FROM ILLINOIS CENTER-RIGHT LEANING SOURCES

GOPUSA ILLINOIS

Now that my critics/opponents have succeeded in removing me from the Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee, what should I do promote the following in the new platform:


— Personal responsibility, that is, to oppose the promotion of dependency on government and charity,
— Traditional marriage and family, that is, to oppose the promotion of LGBTQ,
— Right to life, that is, to oppose the promotion of abortion,
— E-Verify and enforcement of immigration laws, that is, to oppose the promotion of illegal immigration,
— Second Amendment rights, that is, to oppose diminishment of those rights,
— Discouragement of vices, that is, to oppose the promotion of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Equal opportunity, that is, to oppose race and gender based preference giving, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, and
— Direct election of Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee members? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
Trump has begun to remove his posts after being held in contempt. Should I write about those who demand that I remove my opinions from www.gopillinois.com ? For example, should I write about those who demand that I remove my opinion that “Because of what happened at the 2016 IRP State Convention, I am very concerned that efforts are underway under the table to water down if not officially strike the planks in the IRP platform that promote personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, E-Verify and enforcement of immigration laws, Second Amendment rights, discouragement of vices, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving).” Those who made that demand succeeded in having me removed from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
If you were me, what would you do? I want to help elect the candidates who won the March 19, 2024 Republican primary in my precinct to win on November 5, 2024. But since 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted at Republican candidates who won primaries in my precinct that the more that I do to help elect them, the more votes that they will lose. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I am much too conservative and even worse things, and that because of that, the more that I do to help elect a candidate the more evidence that candidate is “too conservative” and even worse things. Further, they stress the many big adverse actions that they got past and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois have taken against me. They will certainly stress to the candidates who won the March 19, 2024 Republican primary in my precinct including Booras, Grant, Berlin, Wang, Grogan, Jorgensen, Prater, Corrigan, Castle, Skarin, Hellad, and Costello that they succeeded in getting Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives to remove me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee. In 2021, they succeeded in ending my role as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks, a role that I had since 2005. – Dave Diersen

Needless-to-say, Republican elected officials and party leaders, and especially the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), should issue critical/condemnatory press releases whenever Democrat elected officials in Illinois take major actions that promote the dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and/or the rest of the planks in the Democrat Party platform. IRP press releases should promote the personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and the rest of the planks in the Republican Party platform. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform in conservative.

— Illinois sees lowest presidential primary voter turnout in decades (COMMENT: 136 (37%) of the 368 registered Republican voters in my new DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton cast Republican primary ballots. To encourage Republican turnout, I hand-delivered to each of the 224 homes and 4 apartments my precinct that had at least one registered Republican voter a copy of the sample ballot and DuPage County Board District 4 write-in candidate Annette Corrigan’s letter. She received 55 write-in votes in my precinct. In addition, as March 19 approached, I contacted 14 registered Republican voters in my precinct who had not returned the mail-in ballots that they had requested. A copy of my precinct letter that I am in the process of hand-delivering to the homes from which at least one Republican ballot was cast is at the end of this newsletter.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/04/19/balich-seeks-to-have-uninitialed-ballots-thrown-out-in-gop-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Homer Township Supervisor and Will County Board Republican Leader Steve Balich said he believes he will be victorious in a recount of the March 19 election for Republican precinct committeeperson after losing the race by one vote. Balich said up to five ballots were not initialed by the election judges so he challenged their validity and wants them thrown out. If they are tossed, he believes he will be declared the winner of the precinct committeeperson race, he said. The March 19 election was certified earlier this month with Homer Glen resident Tami O’Brien besting Balich, who was the leader of the Homer Township Republican Organization, by one vote. O’Brien received 115 votes to Balich’s 114. . .O’Brien ran as part of the Neighbors United for Homer Township slate whose goal was “to return civility and harmony to Homer Township.” Neighbors United won 11 of the 19 races for precinct committeeperson, including some races that were not contested, defeating Balich as well as Homer Glen Trustee Dan Fialko and Homer Township Assessor Carmen Maurella. The results bring new Republican leadership to the Homer Township Republican Organization. O’Brien said she was tired of the division that plagued the area as well as divisive social media posts. She ran to be a liaison to keep her neighborhood updated with village matters and end confusion.)

— Surprisedly, Democrats acknowledge some of the many terrible negatives of pot.
https://www.wsiltv.com/news/health/here-s-what-marijuana-researchers-have-to-say-about-420-or-weed-day/article_a2b4d5cf-2de4-54c0-ad60-46e1a6beeaf9.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But not everyone joins in on the 420 festivities. Some scientists who study weed have become increasingly concerned about the potential harm cannabis can do to the body, especially when smoked or vaped. “When you burn something, whether it is tobacco or cannabis, it creates toxic compounds, carcinogens, and particulate matter that are harmful to health,” Dr. Beth Cohen, professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, told CNN previously via email. Marijuana smoke may even be more harmful than tobacco because users hold the hot smoke in their lungs longer to maximize their high, Cohen said. A March 2021 study found teens were twice as likely to report “wheezing or whistling” in the chest after vaping marijuana than after smoking cigarettes or using e-cigarettes. “I’m in Colorado, and on 420 the smoke billows out of places where people gather to celebrate — it’s like a factory smokestack,” said Robert Page II, a professor of clinical pharmacy and physical medicine at the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Aurora. “I worry when people are in an enclosed space because new data is beginning to show that secondhand marijuana smoke may be just as dangerous as the primary smoke,” Page said. “Like tobacco, cannabis affects the central nervous system, and there are side effects which tend to primarily be cardiovascular in nature.” Any level of marijuana use raises the risk of stroke by 42% and heart attack by 25%, even if there is no prior history of heart disease and the person has never smoked or vaped tobacco, a recent study found. Weed has also been linked to cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation; myocarditis, which is an inflammation of the heart muscle; spasms of the heart’s arteries and a higher risk of heart failure. It’s not. “If a person is in a closed space with marijuana smokers, they can test positive for cannabis in their urine. They can also get some of the other physical effects of marijuana, including an increased heart rate and feeling ‘high,’ ” Carol Boyd, founding director of the Center for the Study of Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking and Health at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, told CNN in an earlier interview. It’s not just your lungs that may be at risk. A January 2021 study found people who only smoked marijuana had higher blood and urine levels of several smoke-related toxins than nonsmokers. Those toxins are linked to anemia, liver and neurological damage, cancer and other health issues. There’s more: Weed users are nearly 25% more likely to need emergency care and hospitalization, according to a 2022 study, and overuse of marijuana can lead to complications when in surgery. Weed users have more heavy metal in their bodies. Serious traffic accidents are on the rise in areas where weed is legal, a 2023 study found. Potency of weed has skyrocketed, which can heighten health risks and is leading to a global rise in marijuana addiction as well as marijuana use disorder. “Approximately 3 in 10 people who use marijuana have marijuana use disorder,” according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Experts say this condition comes with a higher risk of mental disorders, cognitive deficits, use of psychiatric services and violent behavior. Weed’s impact on babies and teens Using marijuana during pregnancy has been linked to low birth weight, one of the strongest predictors of a child’s long-term health. A lack of knowledge about weed Despite these health concerns, the majority of American adults still believe smoking or vaping marijuana smoke or breathing secondhand smoke from a joint is safer than tobacco smoke, even if children are present, according to an August 2023 study. Babies born to mothers who smoke pot or eat edibles to control nausea, for example, were twice as likely to be premature and 2.5 times as likely to be admitted to a neonatal intensive care unit, according to a 2023 study. Just as alarming: A 2020 study found children born to marijuana users had more psychotic-like behaviors and more attention, social and sleep problems as well as weaker cognitive abilities. It’s not good for older children, either. The growing use of weed by adolescents is extremely alarming, experts say, because marijuana is known to damage the developing brain. “The teen brain is actively developing and continues to develop until around age 25,” the CDC states on its website. Use during that time can have permanent effects such as damage to learning, memory, problem-solving skills and the ability to pay attention, the CDC said. “It’s disruptive to the teenage brain, so it needs to be used with extreme caution or not at all,” said Dr. Peter Grinspoon, a primary care physician and cannabis specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston who authored “Through the Smoke: A Cannabis Specialist Untangles the Truth About Marijuana.” Young people who use marijuana are more likely to develop long-lasting mental disorders, including depression, social anxiety and schizophrenia, and drop out of school, the CDC said. Studies show overuse of marijuana by youth with mood disorders leads to a rise in self-harm, suicide attempts and death. Daily use by adolescents and adults can result in another unpleasant side effect: uncontrollable vomiting, according to a 2021 study. “They vomit and then just continue to vomit whatever they have in their stomach, which can go on for hours,” study author Dr. Sam Wang, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist and toxicologist at Children’s Hospital Colorado, told CNN previously. Despite these concerns, school-age kids were vaping twice as much weed in 2020 as they did in 2013. In fact, some parents told doctors they believed vaping marijuana was safer than tobacco, Boyd told CNN earlier via email. “You seem to believe that heating chemicals (including carcinogens) into a vapor and inhaling them is healthy? My answer is, ‘No, it is not a healthy behavior.’” In addition to harming the lung, vaping weed is associated with a dangerous, recently identified lung disease called EVALI, short for e-cigarette, or vaping product use-associated lung injury. By early 2020, the CDC had recorded over 2,800 hospitalizations and 68 deaths due to this condition, according to Yale Medicine.)

— Understanding the Duty of Employees to Follow Lawful and Reasonable Directions (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980 and GAO 1980-1997, reluctantly, I fully understood and fully carried out their ever-increasing directives that I give more and more and more preference to their Democrat employees who were minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. But that was not enough. They a) wasted my career, b) took many adverse actions against me, c) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, and d) gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black Democrat subordinate. He had a) less job-related work experience than I had, b) less job-related education than I had, c) fewer job-related professional certifications than I had, and d) no job-related professional license like the one I had.)

— What do your critics/opponents believe gives them license to take adverse actions against you? I should write a book about those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me. They have always known full-well that I could name them, their operatives, and their dupes  in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. Maybe that is what they want me to do. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

My critics/opponents believe the following gives them license to take adverse actions against me:

— I share many demographics with someone who they despise/hate, that is, with Trump. Both Trump and I are conservative, Republican, White, male, older, married, non-poor, draft-avoider, gun-owner, Protestant, German American, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time;
— I supported a candidate in a Republican primary other than the candidate who they supported;
— Past and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party not only have not come to my defense, they have taken many big adverse actions against me;
— Past and present Republican leaders of Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois not only have not come to my defense, they have taken many big adverse actions against me;
— Past and present conservative and religious leaders in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois not only have not come to my defense, they have taken many big adverse actions against me;
— Past and present Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct that I have done lots to help elect and reelect not only have not come to my defense, they have taken many big adverse actions against me;
— I refuse to glorify or praise my critics/opponents, pander to them, be manipulated or dominated by them, serve as one or their operatives or dupes, cover up their wrong doing, or give them money;
— They reject one or more of the following planks in the Republican Party platform: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving):
— They disapprove of/despise/hate one or more of the articles that I have included links to in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters since 2000 including the almost 485,000 articles since 2004;
— They blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for all the defeats that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000;
— They despise/hate federal employees like I was for almost 30 years and especially IRS employees like I was for almost 9 years;
— They despise/hate federal retirees like I have been for almost 27 years;
— My Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old and just about everyone talks and/or acts not only like they believe that I deserved it, but that I was grossly overpaid and promoted too fast;
— They despise/hate DINKs, that is, those like my wife and I who are married, who both have/income, and who did not have children, adopt, or become foster parents;
— They despise/hate one or more of my demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, gun-owner, Protestant, German American and/or my ancestors have been in America since 1844;
— They despise/hate draft avoiders, I avoided the Vietnam War draft with student deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971″
— They believe that their being a member of a church, that their attending church services, and/or that their giving money to a church gives them a license to sin;
— They know that my policy has always been to forgive those who trespass against me;
— They are envious of what I have;
— I have lived in DuPage County only since 1978; and/or
— I have sued them and/or one of their clients.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Attorney General Merrick Garland, who boasted of arresting and convicting hundreds of people who rioted in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, signed off on dismissing the charges and quashing the arrest warrant for a woman accused of blowing up a bomb near the Senate chamber. Elizabeth A. Duke jumped bail nearly four decades ago and has never been captured and prosecuted for the Capitol bombing, nor has she faced charges for her role in bombing the Navy Yard and Fort McNair, or plotting to bomb other federal buildings, among them the Old Executive Office Building next to the White House and the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Democrats quietly helped toss her case in 2009, a move that Mr. Garland later signed off on.)

GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE
— Applications for revenue-generating IRS jobs are ‘far below’ agency goals. The tax agency is facing major hurdles with its big ambitions for hiring to slash uncollected taxes. – ERIC KATZ (COMMENT: I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980. GAO audits IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980. I should write a book about a) how my Democrat IRS superiors wasted my career and b) how my Democrat GAO superiors wasted my knowledge of IRS, wasted my career, and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I earned four more professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997. I earned a master’s degree in finance from IIT in 1997.)
https://www.govexec.com/workforce/2024/03/applications-revenue-generating-irs-jobs-are-far-below-agency-goals/394987/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The agency has made some progress—it has eliminated barriers to posting job openings—but is still facing headwinds that are largely outside of its control. Revenue agents for those roles have “yet to be hired and onboarded,” the IG said. “External applications that have been received are far below the IRS targeted goal and there is an overall shortage of individuals with the desired background and experience,” TIGTA found. A previous IG report found that despite its new funding, revenue agent staffing had actually decreased by 8%, or more than 650 employees, between the end of fiscal 2019 and March 2023. IRS had planned to bring on 3,833 revenue agents in fiscal 2023, but in the first six months officials had recruited just 34. IRS officials are aware of the problem and are attempting to develop solutions. The agency has completed an enterprise-wide recruiting strategy for revenue agents and is “exploring options” to better promote related job announcements. “We are making remarkable progress in our efforts to transform the IRS and the pace of change is accelerating as we use the historic funding from the IRA,” said David Padrino, IRS’ chief transformation and strategy officer. He noted that overall, the agency has completed 45% of its fiscal 2023 milestones, while 55% were underway and just 2% had not yet been addressed. Still, some of IRS’ shortfalls may be systemic. Erin Collins, the National Taxpayer Advocate, warned in a recent report the IRS Human Capital Office “lacks the necessary resource investments,” including IT and staffing, to keep up with the agency’s new hiring demands. Citing the pay gap between federal and private sector employees, the taxpayer advocate said it would be “unreasonable to expect the IRS to consistently out-recruit the competition.” The agency has maintained expedited hiring authority, but even when using it in fiscal 2023 the average time between a job announcement and a start date was 110 days. Additionally, the Government Accountability Office found last month IRS is failing to detail its current and future needs, where skill gaps exist and its strategy for filling them. It has broad hiring plans and types of roles for which it will hire, but has not specified which workers would go toward high-income/high-wealth audits. IRS is also facing political headwinds. Congressional Republicans have decried the hiring as a “power grab,” and the agency itself has warned its workforce could be facing a “cliff” in several years when IRA funds are set to expire. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., even wrote a letter to Americans imploring them not to apply for the forthcoming jobs. Collins suggested IRS invest more in using the Pathways and Presidential Management Fellows programs to recruit employees. She also said the agency should consider contracting with recruiting firms to help it bring in candidates for higher-grade positions. Collins noted IRS has made significant gains in hiring for customer service positions—the agency completed a total of 34% more hiring actions in fiscal 2023 than the previous year—but said the outstanding problems threaten what it is trying to accomplish. “If the IRS does not make significant changes, these staffing shortages will compound and pose significant threats to federal tax administration and taxpayer rights,” the taxpayer advocate said. The challenges do not come as a surprise: Collins and former officials—including Danny Werfel, who has since once again become IRS commissioner—warned when the IRA was passed that fulfilling the agency’s staffing goals would present significant difficulties. IRS is also looking to develop flexible work options, but TIGTA found in its new report that progress in that area has been delayed. The agency is still looking to onboard a project lead in that area and is determining what is feasible based on other agency practices. The Treasury Department last month mandated that employees work from their offices at least 50% of the time. The agency is also creating a pulse survey to establish a baseline on employee morale, while officials have presented to the Transformation and Strategy Office three options for improving employee recognition and educating managers about rewards for staff.)
