Of course, my RINO critics/opponents, their RINO operatives, and their RINO dupes in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, and DuPage County use that to paint me as being a racist and even worse things.

PJ MEDIA
— LGBT Activists Slander the Evangelicals for Trump Coalition – TYLER O’NEIL (DIERSEN: Sooner or later, LGBTQ activists will force LGBTQ elected officials and party leaders to get rid of those like me who do not promote LGBTQ activity.) 
https://pjmedia.com/trending/lgbt-activists-slander-the-evangelicals-for-trump-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On the third day of 2020, conservative Christian leaders met at a megachurch in Miami for an “Evangelicals for Trump” rally, launching a key part of the president’s re-election campaign. Shortly thereafter, LGBT activist groups and websites descended on the key figures of this coalition, attacking them as “hate group” leaders and “anti-LGBTQ extremists.” The LGBT magazine The Advocate dug up old statements and repeated the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to smear the evangelicals involved, citing research compiled by the activist group GLAAD. “One of the best-known among them is Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center,” Trudy Ring wrote. The SPLC fired its co-founder last year after a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal that also revealed how former employees saw themselves as “part of the con,” exaggerating hate by padding the “hate group” list and “bilking northern liberals” to cut big checks. It has faced multiple defamation lawsuits and paid millions to settle them. As for FRC, a deranged shooter targeted the organization due to the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation, which is based on false and exaggerated claims.)

ASSOCIATED PRESS
— Reporters claim new rules will hinder impeachment coverage – ASHRAF KHALIL (DIERSEN: I should write a book about past and present activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, and political consultants in Illinois, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who treat me and treat what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor as though they really are Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and/or RINOs. Better yet, I should sue them.) 
https://wtmj.com/national/2020/01/15/reporters-claim-new-rules-will-hinder-impeachment-coverage/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A preliminary security plan would greatly limit the movement of credentialed media members. Journalists would be restricted to a designated area and could only speak to senators who approached them. Under normal conditions, credentialed journalists can informally approach lawmakers in the hallways or on the way to the elevator or the Senate subway. “That’s the bread and butter of what we do here. That’s where you get that extra nugget of information,” Wire said in an interview with The Associated Press. Members of the press corps are also asking for a waiver of the traditional ban on laptops and cellphones, which would enable them to file breaking news updates from gallery seats inside the Senate chamber, but that request has apparently been rejected. The security plan would also place a magnetometer at the door of the gallery seats to scan journalists as they enter and prevent them from bringing in electronics.)

I have asked Bob Grogan, who represents the 6th Congressional District, to appoint me to serve on that committee like Ron Smith did in 2008.

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Aldermen fear setting aside contracts for gay-owned businesses could lead to fraud, fewer contracts for people of color The City Council signed off on a study of the idea proposed by Chicago’s first openly-gay mayor. – Fran Spielman (DIERSEN: The more preference that is given to LGBTQers, the more people that will claim to be LGBTQers.) (WIREPOINTS: If set-asides are extended to gays, only 13.6% of Chicago’s population would be left without access to a set-aside – straight, white, males with no handicap, as we detailed earlier. In other words, over 86% of Chicagoans would be entitled to preferential treatment when bidding for city contracts. Maybe it would be easier just to designate the small minority that gets no preference.)

— Mike Madigan squashes legislative probe of that email about a rape. If he were a Republican, he’d be gone – John Kass (WIREPOINTS: If Madigan were a Republican, his opponents may have likely invoked House Rule 91, to form a legislative commission to examine charges of obstruction of the legislature. Why? Because Madigan just squashed a legislative investigation of Michael McClain, his closest confidant and a retired lobbyist who’s under a federal criminal investigation. That legislative inquiry would have examined McClain’s email defending a politically connected worker who “kept his mouth shut” about “that rape in Champaign.”)

— Oregon lawmakers to tackle age discrimination in workplace – Eric Tegethoff (DIERSEN: It would be great if Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton formed such task forces and appointed me to them.)
https://ktvz.com/news/2020/01/14/oregon-lawmakers-to-tackle-age-discrimination-in-workplace/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Creating an age-discrimination task force will be a priority during the Oregon Legislature’s short session next month. The discussion on how to address the issue started in the 2019 session, after a 2018 AARP survey found three in five older workers in the state have seen or experienced age discrimination. According to the Oregon Bureau of Labor Industries, more than 2,500 age discrimination claims have been filed with the agency in the past decade. AARP Oregon State Director Ruby Haughton-Pitts said older workers are a valuable part of the labor force, especially with the state’s historically low unemployment numbers. “How can we have a broad enough discussion that actually creates a viable workforce for the future in our state,” she said, “and doesn’t X people out just because you see when they graduated from college or high school or whatever, but says, ‘This person has good skills; I need to take a look at them.'”)

NARFE
— Tell Your Representative to Stop Shortchanging Retirees (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the purchasing power of my Civil Service Retirement System pension and my Social Security diminishes because real inflation is far greater than COLAs.) 
https://www.narfe.org/communications/index.cfm?fa=viewArticle&ID=4679

(FROM THE POSTING: Are you tired of the annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) not keeping pace with the increased costs you’re experiencing? Visit NARFE’s Legislative Action Center today to send a message to your Representative urging him or her to support the Fair COLA for Seniors Act, H.R. 1553. The bill would replace the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) with the Consumer Price Index for the Elderly (CPI-E) to ensure more accurate annual COLAs for seniors. Currently, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) uses the CPI-W index to measure COLAs, but it does not accurately reflect the purchasing patterns of seniors who spend larger portions of their budgets on medicine, health care, shelter and other goods and services specific to their needs. Switching to the CPI-E would better account for seniors’ spending habits, resulting in more accurate COLAs. The CPI-W shortchanges retired federal retirees, veterans and all seniors who depend on Social Security for much-needed retirement income. Millions of seniors living on fixed incomes rely on every dollar to see them through retirement, and the antiquated CPI-W cuts deeply into their earned retirement income and jeopardizes their long-term financial security)

CENTER SQUARE
— Grant Wehrli bill filed in Illinois to bar private pay for public employees after Gov. J.B. Pritzker shells out $3 million for staffers – Greg Bishop 
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/bill-filed-in-illinois-to-bar-private-pay-for-public/article_e563d918-330f-11ea-beb1-63b278b2e70e.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Rep. Grant Wehrli, R-Naperville, said the move sets a precedent that could make it difficult for future governors of more modest means to attract quality employees. “Governance should be now and going forward based on how we can deliver for the people of Illinois,” Wehrli said. “It should not be based on who can pay their employees the most through private dollars. It is the height of hypocrisy when the Illinois Democratic party decries outside dollars in politics and state and federal government, yet they’re silent here.” Wehrli said there’s no way to see how the private dollars are being used to pay public employees. “Are they doubling the salary? Is this a bonus for getting legislation passed? [That] would be of extreme concern, basically, that’s pay for performance when it comes to governance and that would be highly unethical,” Wehrli said. A better way, Wehrli said, would be for the supplementary pay to come out of a campaign fund, such as Michael Bloomberg did when he served New York’s mayor. That would at least show how the money flows, Wehrli said, but even that raises questions. “Running it through a campaign account would add some clarity, but not enough clarity to where I’d be OK with it,” he said. Wehrli said Pritzker’s wealth would be better spent elsewhere in state government. “We have this thing called a bills backlog, it’s been building for decades,” Wehrli said. “Maybe he just wants to write a check and clear out the bills backlog. That would be a better use of his private dollars.” As of Thursday, the state’s backlog of unpaid bills stood at $6.8 billion. Pritzker is reportedly worth about $3 billion. The governor’s office did not return messages seeking comment. Wehrli said he will file legislation to try and curb the practice, but being in the minority party, he doesn’t expect it to advance. State Sen. Jason Plummer, R-Edwardsville, filed Senate Bill 2320 this week to bar private dollars from being used for public employee salaries. That measure says no state employee “may receive monetary or other compensation from any private party for work performed within the scope of his or her employment by a state agency.” Lawmakers return to Springfield later this month.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nine people have resigned from the 21-member town Democratic Committee, angry that no one over age 60 is being added to the body. The nine, including Committee Chairman Josh Honig, announced their departure in a press release early Thursday that, in addition to age discrimination, alleged bullying and threats by some of the other 12 members. “The threats were that when petition time came, which is pretty soon, that the seniors on the committee would be petitioned, and that they could not possibly, because of their age and not having the backing of the … political establishment, be re-elected to the committee,” said Jane Schanberg, spokesperson for the nine. “They would be replaced by people who were put up by people that were put up by the establishment.”)

What do you say to RINO politicians who ever-increasingly promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: My plan to “Keep America Great” is very simple: 1) Stop exporting American soldiers to countries that hate our guts. 2) Stop importing people from countries that hate our guts. When I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, I thought this was the plan. The “America First” champion rightly assailed Barack Obama for recklessly endangering the lives of our soldiers to pursue politically driven endless wars. President Trump promised to build an effective wall on the southern border. He enacted tough travel restrictions, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, on visitors from countries whose terror-coddling governments pose national security threats. Yet, here we are at the dawn of 2020 with thousands of U.S. troops headed back to the Stone Age Middle East maw, Mexican drug cartels on the loose while our Border Patrol hands out diapers to illegal immigrants and refugees from around the world — including nearly 1,400 welcomed just last year from the very high-risk countries the Trump travel ban was supposed to block — transforming the nation without the consent of the governed. The leaky block list includes Syria, Iraq and Iran, which launched multiple missiles at U.S. airbases late Tuesday in retaliation for our deadly airstrike last week that killed Quds General Qassem Soleimani. Now, we are on heightened alert here in our homeland with authorities nervous that Hezbollah sleeper cells (which I’ve documented since writing “Invasion” in 2002) might strike from within. Some of you still wonder why I write so frequently and vehemently about our failed immigration and entrance policies. It’s because nothing matters more right now to the survival of our country than the right to determine who gets in and the ability to enforce it. As I reported last year, thanks to an executive order signed by Trump in September, local communities were given the explicit opt-in rights to stem the lucrative tide of refugees coming largely from Third World countries and jihadist breeding grounds. This Wednesday, religious “charities” that profit the most from this multi-billion-dollar racket will be in court to assert blanket, open-borders veto power over the people. The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland will hear arguments from vested refugee resettlement interests who oppose Trump’s order requiring government contractors to obtain written consent from all localities and states in which they plan to resettle refugees. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service — three of the nine State Department partners who resettle all refugees — argue that the federal government should prioritize family reunification of foreign refugees over local control. Translation: Americans come last. The lawsuit assails the White House executive order for threatening “to systematically dismantle the organizations — including Plaintiffs — that have spent decades developing networks, expertise, and resources to carry out the American ideal of welcoming refugees.” Those “resources” come from you and me: Tax subsidies that constitute the vast majority of these nonprofit activists’ budgets. Over the past decade, according to an analysis by immigration researcher James Simpson, the three plaintiff groups have raked in the following amounts from the federal refugee resettlement program: –Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services: $471.6 million (94% from of its budget). –Church World Service: $433.3 million (72% of its budget). –Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: $186.1 million (54% of its budget). The refugee resettlement contractors, in turn, spread their massive wealth — from both public and private sources — to a galaxy of subcontractors looking to register Democratic voters, fill their pews and recruit new clients and constituents. The “Interfaith Immigration Coalition” holding a protest event after the hearing on Wednesday to support the refugee pipeline includes: Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach; Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd; U.S. Provinces; Daughters of Charity; Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries; Franciscan Action Network; Interfaith Immigration Coalition; Jewish Council for Public Affairs; Leadership Conference of Women Religious; National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd; National Council of Jewish Women; Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Rise for Refuge; Sisters of Mercy of the Americas – Institute Leadership Team; T’ruah; The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights; The United Church of Chr! ist; and We Are All America. Thanks to pressure from these groups with bottomless budgets and clout, 18 Republican — yes, Republican — governors are also standing against Trump and self-determination in favor of increased refugee settlement, including: Doug Ducey of Arizona, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, Eric Holcomb of Indiana, Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Brad Little of Idaho, Mike Parsons of Missouri, Larry Hogan of Maryland, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Gary Herbert of Utah, Jim Justice of West Virginia and Phil Scott of Vermont. The names must be named and the sellouts must be shamed, especially as war breaks out on all fronts. What’s the point of sending young American troops to fight enemies “over there” if we are welcoming them by the tens and hundreds of thousands over here?)

— State Rep. Celina Villanueva is expected to be named a state senator tonight when Cook County Democratic Committee members meet to fill the seat vacated by Martin Sandoval. The committee members will interview candidates that come forward for the 11th legislative Senate district position. Villanueva has already stated her interest, and she separately filed petitions to run for the Senate seat outright in 2020, presuming she’d first be appointed. Assuming Villanueva succeeds, Edgar Gonzalez Jr., a constituency services liaison for Congressman Chuy Garcia, has gathered signatures to run for her state rep seat. Gonzalez also hopes to first be appointed to the position, if Villanueva secures Sandoval’s seat. Both Villanueva and Gonzalez are backed by Garcia and House Speaker Mike Madigan, whose seat overlaps the 11th District. – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST (DIERSEN: Do your Republican county, township, and/or ward party organizations endorse candidates a) when vacancies occur and/or b) in primary elections?
