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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Bailey: ‘To come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639054534-bailey-to-come-here-into-illinois-and-to-add-the-foid-card-and-to-continue-to-add-these-restrictions-that-s-an-infringement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Sen. Darren Bailey is among the growing list of lawmakers to come out against new legislation. According to KSKD, DuPage County Sheriff Jim Mendrick, the top law enforcement officer in the state’s second-largest county, is also among law enforcement officials who have declared they will not be enforcing the law, branding it as facing “a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” In a recent Facebook post, Bailey expressed that background checks for firearms make sense. However, additional restrictions are not necessary. “We can say, alright, ‘Shall not be infringed,’ but yet we understand that sometimes these guns fall into the hands of the wrong person. So we have the federal, you know, firearm background check. That’s exactly what it does, and I don’t see anyone arguing that. But to come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement,” Bailey said in a Facebook post. Illinois state residents will be informed further on the new law for firearms once it is fully enforced. Under the terms of the new law, residents will be allowed to keep guns they have already purchased or obtained, along with newly relocated residents being eligible to apply for a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card within 60 days of making the state their new home. Illinois State Police are writing new administrative rules to explain how to enforce the assault weapons ban, with The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) being the final voice in determining what rules are officially adopted before state police eventually circulate them to other law enforcement agencies across the state.)

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE
— FAQS: QUESTION: Do Illinois residents have to register their AR or assault weapons as defined by the new law? ANSWER: Yes. In the coming months, more detailed information will be made available on how to register the firearm. At this time, you cannot submit an affidavit for registration. The endorsement affidavit will be available by October 1, 2023 and must be signed under oath and submitted to the ISP prior to January 1, 2024.

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— DuPage County sheriff says he is not changing stance on enforcing the gun ban – Andrew Hensel (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969), while I did increasingly object to their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination, I never even came close to even hinting that I would not enforce their Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) requirements. In fact, I enforced their AA and DEI requirements big time. To comply with their AA and DEI requirements, I gave tremendous preference to my subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, disabled, non-Christion, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. Most of my subordinates were most of the aforesaid. But my aforesaid tremendous preference giving was still not enough for my Democrat superiors. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would focus on the tremendous preference that I gave my Black GAO CPA subordinate who my Democrat GAO superiors gave my job and my preferred corner office to after they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

I worked in Cook County 1964-1997. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 washing dishes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline. I worked in Flossmoor in 1966 cleaning golf shoes. I worked in Park Forest 1966-1969 delivering mail. I worked in Chicago Heights 1970-1972 selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances and pumping gasoline. I worked in downtown Chicago in 1971 and 1973-1980 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in Harvey 1972-1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked at 63rd and Halsted in Chicago in 1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in downtown Chicago auditing federal agencies 1980-1997. I lived in downtown Chicago part-time 1974-1976 and full-time 1976-1978. In 1978, I got married. My wife and I used her savings for the downpayment on a home in Wheaton, I sold my one bedroom Outer Drive East condo for $61,000, and with the $10,000 gain, I bought a new 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale for $6,000 and a new 1978 Chevrolet Chevette for $4,000 in Glen Ellyn. My wife worked in Cook County 1968-2003 and 2014-2017.

I had a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, and d) earned a high school diploma in 1966.

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/burr-ridge-enforce-new-gun-law-officials
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But he said officers called onto private property for unrelated matters would take action if unregistered weapons are in view. “I have been asked if this bill is a violation of the Constitution. That’s for the courts to decide,” Madden said. Mayor Gary Grasso agreed with the chief’s approach. “The point being is that the village will not turn a blind eye to the necessary enforcement of this law,” the mayor said. “Like all laws, the chief and officers will enforce them.” He said he wanted to make it clear where the village stands on the issue. “We follow the law and will let the courts decide on the propriety of the law,” Grasso said. The law is being challenged in the courts. Under its provisions, residents with “assault” weapons must register them starting Oct. 1. They have until Jan. 1 to do so.)

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/durkin-seat-hopefuls-kept-secret-now
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two Republicans have applied for the state House seat left vacant by Rep. Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, a party leader confirmed Thursday. But the leader declined to release the names. In a message to Patch, DuPage County Republican Party Chairman Jim Zay said the selection committee plans to meet Thursday night about the candidates for 82nd District state representative. He said the names would not be released until after that meeting, saying the committee would need to talk to all its members about it. Both Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso and Willow Springs Village President Melissa Neddermeyer have confirmed to Patch that they did not apply. Democrats and Republicans have no legal requirement to disclose the names of candidates who apply for legislative posts left vacant by party members. In fact, the parties have been known to keep the information under wraps. The 82nd District includes all or parts of Western Springs, La Grange, Hinsdale and Burr Ridge, among other towns. Durkin, who resigned last month, was the House Republican leader. In Illinois, a state representative’s district consists of about 105,000 people. Republicans plan to hold a public meeting involving interviews of “select” candidates, according to a party news release. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the House Republican Organization office at 16W281 83rd St., Suite D, in Burr Ridge. Interested Republicans must have lived in the district for the last two years. For more information, call 217-553-7743 or email jaymesiemer@gmail.com.)

— Stop calling semi-automatic rifles assault rifles – Patrick Donlea, Crystal Lake
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/29/letter-stop-calling-semi-automatic-rifles-assault-rifles/
(FROM THE LETTER: I understand many people use hyperbole to make their arguments sound more compelling. That being said, we have to stop calling any semi-automatic rifle designed and sold for civilian and police use an “assault rifle.” An assault rifle is a specific tool designed for and used by the military. Because of this, it should not be available for civilian or civil police use. The assault rifle is distinguished from the standard battle rifle by three primary characteristics that make it easier to use in close quarters, such as urban or jungle fighting. These characteristics are: 1. It’s comparatively short and light. 2.
It fires a less powerful, and, therefore lighter, round bullet. 3. It has a selective fire switch which allows it to shoot in either semi-automatic or fully automatic mode, such as firing three shot bursts as a third option. The last of these characteristics makes it a type of machine gun. This puts the assault rifle under the registration requirements of the National Firearms Act (NFA). It should be noted that Illinois law has already prohibited the possession of all NFA weapons, specifically machine guns, by Illinois residents since 1961 (720 ILCS 5/24). So, please stop calling a semi-automatic rifle a machine gun or assault rifle when discussing current gun laws. For the past 62 years, it has been illegal to own assault rifles in Illinois.)

Equip yourself with the tools to enjoy early retirement. – Rachel Hartman (COMMENT: Because my Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those who ancestors had been America for a long time and who they had not promote to Senior Executive Service, currently $183,500/year by age 40, I planned on retiring as soon I became eligible for regular retirement in 2003 when I would be 55. But they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. Consequently my Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension is significantly less. My CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old.)

— America Needs To Improve How It Treats Its Older Workers – Teresa Ghilarducci
https://www.forbes.com/sites/teresaghilarducci/2023/01/28/how-america-treats-its-older-workers-new-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Involuntary Retirement It is hard for older workers to keep a job, as Urban Institute’s Richard W. Johnson showed the economists gathered there. Older workers do worse under conditions of layoffs and business closures. Job-finding is easier for workers under 50 who get displaced from a job — more than 70% of displaced workers under 50 typically find new work within three years of their job loss. For workers 55-61, however, that number falls to 59%. Among those who can start claiming Social Security, at ages 62 and older the reemployment rate falls to just 38%. So they claim early Social Security benefits at reduced monthly benefits or they start bidding down and take jobs that are worse than their previous ones. Early retirement is an all-too-common last resort, and involuntary retirements increase the risk of depression and downward mobility. Labor market scarring is another effect of job loss beyond the pain of unemployment. Scarring refers to the earnings losses experienced by displaced workers who do manage to find work again. Once again, things get worse as you move up in age. Re-employed displaced workers, age 55-61, earn 22% less than they did before, a scarring effect that is more than twice as severe as for those in their 30s. Weekly earnings are 29% lower for reemployed displaced workers 62 and older.)

HR DRIVE
— COMMENT: Democrats say “6 diversity and inclusion trends to watch in 2023.” (COMMENT: Since I became a federal employee in 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)
https://www.hrdive.com/news/2023-diversity-and-inclusion-trends/641211/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A phenomenon Stamps said she’s been thinking about lately is medical challenges forcing early retirement. “If you’re forced to retire, you’re theoretically less prepared for retirement than the average [person] and you have more debt. That’s more challenging because now you have a sort of fixed income if you’re lucky. Getting any kind of fixed income that you have to depend on kind of perpetuates the racial wealth gap.”)

NASDAQ
— How to Save for Retirement Even When You’re in Your 20s and Broke – Mary Ellen Cagnassola (COMMENT: I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension in 1966 when I was 18 years old and started working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office. I earned full-time CSRS credits even though I worked only part-time. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious about that ever since then. I earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits working for IRS 1971-1980 and almost 18 years of CSRS credits working for GAO 1980-1997. My CSRS pension is dramatically reduced a) because my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors wasted my career and took many adverse actions against me and b) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Nevertheless, my CSRS pension is currently $63,144/year. But my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In addition, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)

FED SMITH
— The 2023 COLA is the largest in over 40 years. (COMMENT: My Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension increased from $58,101/year to $63,144/year, that is, by $5,043/year, that is, by 8.7%. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious about that. In my defense, my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. To qualify myself for better paying federal jobs, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 years old in 1970, b) I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and d) I earned a job-related professional license in 1981. I ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) what did they do to qualify themselves for better paying jobs and b) why didn’t they become federal employees?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A victim was wounded Saturday in the parking lot of the Ford City Mall while trying to fend off an attempted car theft. The victim, a 46-year-old man, was walking towards his parked vehicle outside the JCPenny store in the 7600-block of S Cicero around 12:40 p.m. when he saw someone trying to get into his car, according to police. The victim, who is a FOID and CCL holder, exchanged gunfire with the offender before the offender jumped in a nearby vehicle and fled, causing a traffic crash in the 79000-block of S. Pulaski Rd in the process, police said. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the hand and thigh, and was transported to Christ Hospital in fair condition. The offender sustained a graze wound to the head and was taken to the hospital in good condition, officials said. Three offenders were taken into custody and charges are pending.)

Ever-increasingly, because I was Republican, White, male, and older, the following meant absolutely nothing to them: a) my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) my earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) my becoming a licensed CPA in 1981, e) my becoming Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1996, and f) my earning a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.

In a closed-door session during this week’s RNC meeting, two members working on the party’s 2022 audit debated whether “candidate quality” was to blame for midterm losses.” Ever-increasingly, in deciding which candidates to back in primaries and in nonpartisan races, conservative and Republican organizations give more and more and more weight to candidate demographics instead of candidate quadfurcations. Ever-increasingly, they give more and more and more preference to candidates who are minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about how conservative and Republican organizations have ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: a) GAO Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year, b) IRS Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year, c) I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, d) I became a licensed CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, and e) I earned an MBA from Loyola, master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. I should write a book about how the following ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Student loan forgiveness: Here’s the number of eligible borrowers who applied by US state.” In Illinois, the number of borrowers who applied or were automatically deemed eligible is 1,044,000. Did you get a student loan? I did not. First off, I doubt that I could have gotten a student loan. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of Crete-Monee High School class of 1966. My ACT was only 24. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My GPA and ACT would have been much higher if I had not washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights every evening Monday through Thursday during my junior and senior years and full-time during the summer in between. But if I had gotten a student loan, my GPA at UIC and at NIU would have been much higher and I would have majored in accounting instead of management. While I took classes at UIC 1966-1969 and at NIU 1969-1970, I worked as many hours as I possibly could for the Park Forest Post Office. Far too many times, I skipped classes on Mondays and on Fridays to work more hours.

UNITED STATE COAST GUARD
— How to spot and report retaliation – Arcady Darter (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat Post office superiors retaliated against me by disallowing my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forcing me to resign in 1969. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated against me by a) forcing me to take the aforesaid pay cut to transfer, b) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) not promoting me to GS-14, e) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 years 1986-1988, f) forcing the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, g) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Retaliation increased significantly after I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)
https://www.mycg.uscg.mil/News/Article/3271731/how-to-spot-and-report-retaliation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Workplace retaliation can take many forms and it is important for employees to understand how to identify retaliation and the ways to report it. But how does one determine if an action is retaliatory? 3 Elements of retaliation  Retaliation occurs when an employer takes actions or negative behaviors against an employee for engaging in legally protected Equal Employment Opportunity/Equal Opportunity (EEO/EO) activity such as reporting discrimination and harassment or participating in an investigation of harassment. Let’s break down the components of retaliation: First, for an employee or applicant to file a complaint on the basis of retaliation, they must have engaged in a protected activity. This means that the employee asserted their rights by filing an EEO/EO complaint, being a witness to an EEO/EO complaint, or simply contacting the Civil Rights Directorate for information regarding the complaint process. Pointing out exclusionary hiring practices, resisting sexual advances, or intervening to protect others from harassment or discrimination are also examples of protected activities. The second element of a retaliation claim is that after engaging in a protected activity, the employee or applicant suffers an unfavorable action from their employer. For instance, adverse actions can include being fired, being passed over for a promotion, or receiving low-performance reviews after speaking out and engaging in a protected activity. The final element of a retaliation claim is that there is a connection and evidence that shows the adverse action was taken because of the protected activity. This means that the employees’ participation in protected activity motivated the employer’s adverse action or behaviors.)

— Toward Resolving IRS Staffing Shortages. Insights from the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. – Kathryn Simms, Yiwen Li, and Robert A. Warren (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://www.cpajournal.com/2023/01/25/toward-resolving-irs-staffing-shortages/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A total of 31,457 IRS employees completed the 2019 FEVS. Of those respondents, 38.5% were males and 61.5% were females; 67% were white; 21% were African American, and 12% were of other races. Nearly 15% were Millennials or Zoomers. Responses were weighted to provide a representative sample. These demographic characteristics were quite similar for IRS participants in the 2020 and 2021 FEVS.)

My outstanding parents encouraged me to play by the rules. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970) and three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997). I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I saved for my retirement.)

— Democrats Know The Real Purpose Of The Second Amendment — That’s Why They’re So Afraid Of It – MICHELE GAMA SOSA
https://dailycaller.com/2023/01/27/gama-sosa-second-amendment-democrats-purpose/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Second Amendment is once again in the Democrats’ crosshairs amid mass shootings, with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s latest “assault weapons” ban, and now Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claiming that the Founding Fathers would have supported banning certain guns. Democrats have made a lot of noise about banning “military-style” weapons and “weapons of war,” particularly the AR-15 platform – their favorite punching bag – in the name of stopping shootings mostly committed in the ghettos of Democrat-run cities such as Los Angeles, New Orleans, Detroit and most famously Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago. Obviously, this is a false proposition. Criminals don’t register guns or obey the law – they’re criminals. Armed civilians deter crime, whether with “military-style” weapons or a Taurus G3C Subcompact. Gun advocates have made this argument repeatedly. Unfortunately, it falls short and even helps justify bans like the Illinois one. If a subcompact with a five-round magazine is enough for self-defense, then it shouldn’t be a problem if Chicago, for instance, bans anything over 10 rounds, full autos and certain long guns. Because as Democrats argue, you don’t need an M4 to shoot a criminal or hunt. But history says there’s more to the Second Amendment. When the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it was a shock to the world of monarchs and tyrants who kept their populations in line by force and decree. Its protections make America unique. Virtually no country has anything close to it. It gave meaning to the idea of being a citizen of a nation instead of the subject of a despot.)

During the 1970s, they were especially furious that I paid less federal income tax because I deducted graduate business and accounting courses.)

— What Do You Like About Your Job? – Art Markman (COMMENT: I worked for GAO 1980-1997. For the last 8 years, I worked on audits of federal financial industry regulators. GAO’s mission is to provide Congress with fact-based, nonpartisan information that can help improve federal government performance and ensure accountability for the benefit of the American people. That mission helped fight tremendous efforts by my Democrat GAO superiors to waste my GAO career and to get rid of me. That mission motivated me a) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, b) to pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, c) to become a licensed CPA in 1981, d) to become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, e) to become a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, f) to become a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, g) to become a Forensic Accountant in 1997, and h) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. My Democrat GAO superiors threw all of the aforesaid away when they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 so that they could give my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.

— Aggression (COMMENT: What factors have discouraged you from being aggressive? My parents, my grandparents, and the rest of my ancestors were not aggressive. None of them engaged in any kind of aggressive sports like football. My father fought type 1 diabetes from childhood. Neither of my parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant and almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. My mother never attended high school. My mother stayed home and raised me and my brother. My parents had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL), raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL. My parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest to stay with the Missouri Synod. Ever since I developed a bone disease in grade school, I have not been able to run. I washed dishes during my junior and senior years in high school and the summer in between. I have never been in the military. Because of my lack of aggression, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have felt free to take adverse actions against me and they have taken many major adverse actions against me. In my defense, I have filed lawsuits.)

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

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

They got rid of their Republican employees who White, male, and/non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13, currently $109,732/year, by age 25. Extremely few IRS employees make that promotion deadline. I did not make GS-12, currently $92,279/year until I was 25 in 1974. To get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors a) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974, b) got rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, c) never promoted me to GS-13, and d) disallowed my education deductions in 1978. I should write a book about all that. I would focus on how my Democrat IRS superiors used Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and up-or-out to get rid of their Republican employees. All my IRS coworkers who my Democrat IRS superiors promoted over me were minority, female, veteran, had less job-related work experience than I had, and/or had less job-related education than I had.)

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

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

Members of the selection committee are Jim Zay of DuPage County, Tim Ozinga of Will County, Michael Shackel of Lemont Township, Terrance Carr of Lyons Township, Cindy Nelson Katsenes of Orland Township and Sean Morrison of Palos Township. They plan to hold a public meeting involving interviews of “select” candidates, according to the news release. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Feb. 4 at the House Republican Organization office at 16W281 83rd St., Suite D, in Burr Ridge.

— The new Republican chairman of the panel that oversees the IRS said Wednesday that he has created a new online form for agency employees to report directly to Congress on any abuses or wrongdoing they see. – Stephen Dinan (COMMENT: If this had existed while I worked for IRS 1971-1980, I would have reported political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. My Democrat IRS superiors harshly punished me for my opposing their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They got rid of their Republican employees who White, male, and/non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13, currently $109,732/year, by age 25. Extremely few IRS employees make that promotion deadline. I did not make GS-12, currently $92,279/year until I was 25 in 1974. To get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors a) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974, b) got rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, c) never promoted me to GS-13, and d) disallowed my education deductions in 1978. I should write a book about all that. I would focus on how my Democrat IRS superiors used Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and up-or-out to get rid of their Republican employees. All my IRS coworkers who my Democrat IRS superiors promoted over me were minority, female, veteran, had less job-related work experience than I had, and/or had less job-related education than I had.)

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

If America had never had the Second Amendment, a) Mexico would have invaded America sooner than it did and b) Japan and Germany would have invaded America in WWII.)

ABC7
— COMMENT: Democrats say “DuPage County sheriff criticized for refusing to enforce new Illinois assault weapons ban.”
https://abc7chicago.com/illinois-assault-weapon-ban-2023-gun-laws-new-dupage-county-sheriff/12728795/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mendrick issued a statement Monday afternoon saying in part, “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County. In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes…” “In his estimation they’re asking him to go after legal gun owners and that’s where he has a problem with the law,” said former Republican state representative Jeanne Ives. Enforcement of the assault weapons ban is likely to get a lot of discussion during Tuesday morning’s DuPage County board meeting. Leaders on both sides are encouraging supporters to show up. Monday afternoon the state of Illinois filed an appeal to a judge’s ruling that put the assault weapons ban on hold for some parties. That temporary restraining order that came down Friday night and only applies to four federal firearm license dealers and 862 Illinois citizens who are signed plaintiffs in a downstate lawsuit against the law.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Assault Weapons Ban Sparks War of Words Between DuPage County Sheriff and Lawmakers. DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick on Monday fired back at critics who called on him to enforce provisions if Illinois’ assault weapons ban.”
https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/assault-weapons-ban-sparks-war-of-words-between-dupage-county-sheriff-and-lawmakers/3052479/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement released Monday afternoon, Mendrick struck back at the lawmakers saying, “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation.” “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” he added. A downstate Illinois judge on Friday granted a temporary restraining order in a case challenging the legality of the assault weapons ban, effectively halting enforcement of the law for the more than 800 plaintiffs. All but a handful of Illinois’ county sheriffs have said they won’t enforce the ban. Many of them did so by posting letters almost identical to Mendrick’s.)

https://www.cbsnews.com/chicago/video/lawmakers-call-on-dupage-sheriff-to-retract-vow-not-to-enforce-assault-weapons-ban/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a lengthy statement released on Monday, Mendrick again criticized the new law as “poorly written” and for having “no clear direction on who will be enforcing new gun laws.” He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in the statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns.”)

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

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

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: COMMENT: Democrats say “We’re not going to let this die” and “Push for DuPage sheriff to retract weapons ban statement grows.”
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20230123/were-not-going-to-let-this-die-push-for-dupage-sheriff-to-retract-weapons-ban-statement-grows
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier this month, Mendrick issued a statement that said he believed the state’s new ban on high-powered guns and high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. “Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for DuPage County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the state, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with noncompliance of this Act,” Mendrick’s statement reads. . .”There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in a written statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. “They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns,” he said. Mendrick, who had previously suggested he believed compliance checks would be tied to the law, also took note that lawmakers on Monday said they would not be asking officers to go door to door to ensure weapons were legally registered. “That is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” his statement read. . .In his statement Monday, Mendrick, a Republican, said it was “disheartening” to hear Stava-Murray suggest he would not enforce the law when he has said he would enforce the weapons ban when it involves other illegal activity. “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation,” Mendrick said. . .During a nearly hourlong interview over the weekend on AM-560’s “Black and Right” radio program, Mendrick was critical of the weapons ban, claiming sheriffs were not consulted in drafting the new law. Mendrick also questioned what happens after Jan. 1, 2024, the deadline for gun owners to register weapons. Though state lawmakers Monday said they would not seek door-to-door compliance checks, Mendrick said a Jan. 16 conversation with Casten suggested otherwise. The sheriff said Casten suggested that if police officers would go to the door of a home filled with Molotov cocktails, then Mendrick “should be fine going to the doors of people’s homes for the new gun laws.” “That reinforced my belief that we were going to be saddled with a manpower challenge that would be insurmountable, to say the least,” Mendrick said Monday. . .”If we go to doors to check for lawful gun owners, we won’t be available to answer 911 calls anymore,” Mendrick said during the radio program, adding that he would need to send three officers to a home to check for weapons. He also noted he is down 30 deputies and has gone from having 18 deputies on each shift to 11.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “As Tax Season Starts, a Beleaguered I.R.S. Looks to Bolster Customer Service.” (COMMENT: During 1974, as a 25-year-old GS-11 (currently $76,990/year) Revenue Officer, I supervised all of the IRS employees, which included a rotating staff of about 90 Revenue Agent trainees, in IRS’s new downtown Chicago office who answered taxpayer questions using IRS’s new CentiPhone system. Because of my performance, IRS promoted me to GS-12 (currently $92,279/year). But then, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my travel vouchers (SEE: https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11 ) and got rid of the IRS manager who had a) promoted me to GS-9 (currently $63,633) in 1972, b) promoted me to GS-11 in 1973, c) got me the CentiPhone Manager assignment, and d) promoted me to GS-12 in 1974.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20230122/letter-why-not-insure-guns-tie-owners-to-them
(FROM THE LETTER: Some argue cars can kill people, so why not ban cars, too? Better yet, let’s flip the logic and treat guns the same way we treat cars. How? Mandatory insurance. Once you or lease a gun, you must buy qualified firearm insurance. Premium rates increase with each shooting incident (accidental or intentional) just as with car accidents.)

They were farmers in Crete and in Grant Park along the Indiana border. They raised and sold horses in Crete. The operated a hardware store in Crete. They worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights.

NEWSMAX
— Ready for Your Very Own Backseat Driver? — Big Brother – Michael Reagan with Michael R. Shannon (COMMENT: I wonder what positions my fellow Iron Gate Motor Condo owners have on this. Of course, I am concerned about this because I have owned gasoline-powered cars since 1964 and currently own seven gasoline-powered cars and a gasoline-powered SUV. But, on the other hand, I drive them extremely few miles because I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. And further, because I am no longer a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman or an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member, I no longer drive to TAPROOT or ICRC meetings and events. SEE: https://www.irongatemotorcondos.com/ and https://www.igmca.com/home/ )
https://www.newsmax.com/reagan/app-hybrid-premium/2023/01/21/id/1105348/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are insured drivers in the United States — mostly citizens since illegals bypass this sort of nuisance — who participate in an insurance company program. It installs an app on your phone that we call “Mobile Mother-in-Law.” You install the app and it monitors where you drive, when you drive, and how fast you drive. It may even cross-reference the data with the weather. We aren’t sure. What we are sure of is the insurance company analyzes the data and if you obey the speed limit and don’t park in the passing lane on the highway, the insurance company will give you a discount on your premium. (We made the part up about the passing lane, but you get the idea.) If you use the app and succumb to lead-foot disease, not only will you not get an insurance discount, you may suffer an auto insurance increase! Car owners who opt into this app program do so voluntarily with the expectation that their participation will save them money. Now the government wants to get in the app business in the near future and, since it’s the government, the program will be mandatory — and it will cost you money. The Epoch Times brings us the bad news. Government regulations that increased gas mileage and government subsidies that encouraged the purchase of electric and hybrid vehicles have resulted in less revenue for state and federal government highway funds, because those funds are financed by the gas tax. Electric vehicles don’t buy gas, hybrids only buy a little and regular cars get more distance from a tank of gas these days. As a spokesman for the Eastern Transportation Coalition explains, “All vehicles are going farther on less gas, and that is great for our wallets, especially with the gas prices going up. “But it’s not so good when our transportation system is dependent on that fuel tax. The link between usage and payment is broken.” Naturally, government is springing into action. Currently 31 states charge electric vehicles a special, more expensive registration fee. But that once-a-year payment isn’t enough for government bureaucrats. You know them all-too-well. The same people who made you mask-up (even outside!) want to make you install an app to monitor your driving. We call it Big Brother in the Backseat, and it’s bad news. Drivers are less than enthusiastic about this prospect and bureaucrats and NGO nannies can’t fathom why. The Coalition person had the gall to say, “This is a very challenging topic to talk about because nobody likes talking about paying for transportation. We all like the transportation that we use but paying for it is a hard conversation.” We don’t know about you, but our cars cost thousands of dollars and we paid it. What the government is demanding is we pay extra for transportation. Drivers who are paying attention are also very concerned about their privacy and government intrusion into it. It’s one thing to volunteer for an insurance app and gain a discount in return. It’s quite another to be forced to install an app or a tracking device and have a cyber mother-in-law riding shotgun as Big Brother. The comically out-of-touch Coalition flack has a positive spin for that situation, too: “Developers expect a third party, not the government, will keep track of where drivers go, and how much they owe, and some studies have indicated that because a third party is doing the tracking, the data is safe from government eyes. “The data would go to a government contractor that would deduct the amount owed from a user’s credit card and pay it to the states where the vehicle had been.” Would that be the same government that forced “third party” cellphone providers to give tracking data belonging to the Jan. 6 political prisoners to the DOJ without a warrant? We’re supposed to believe our travel data would be safe “from those government eyes”? There are other ways to charge for highway usage without taking a giant step into the Total Surveillance State. If the IRS grants a mileage deduction based on mileage entered on a tax form, then the states can use the same data for its usage tax.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Where Biden’s racial justice agenda stands.” Ever-increasingly, Democrats a) blame Republicans for all the problems that minorities have had, are having, and will have and b) encourage minorities to hate Republicans. I should write a book about my minority superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who rejected efforts by my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates to paint me as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, ad even worse things.

NBC NEWS
— COMMENT: Democrats said in 2017 “America’s rifle: Why so many people love the AR-15.”
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/america-s-rifle-why-so-many-people-love-ar-15-n831171
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are a lot of reasons people love their AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, and it doesn’t much matter to them what the haters say. For some, the gun is a tool, a finely tuned machine that can cut down an animal or intruder, or pierce a distant target, with a single precise shot. For others, it is a toy, a sleek beast of black plastic and metal that delivers a gratifying blast of adrenaline. And for many, it is a symbol, the embodiment of core American values — freedom, might, self-reliance. . .It is the focus of multiple attempts at prohibition, which in turn has prompted people to run out and buy more. Such “panic buying” drove sales of AR-15s to record levels during the presidency of Barack Obama and the 2016 presidential campaign. . .Devotees say the AR-15 has been wrongly demonized, arguing that the vast majority of owners never use it in a crime, and that despite the rifle’s use in mass shootings, it is responsible for a very small proportion of the country’s gun violence. Thanks to that ardent following, and shrewd marketing, the AR-15 remains a jewel of the gun industry, the country’s most popular rifle, irreversibly lodged into American culture. . .The civilian model wasn’t mass produced until the 1980s, after the original patent expired and a variety of companies began making them. That transformed a specific brand to a more generic offering on which a mini-industry would flourish. When the AR-15 and other semiautomatic rifles began to turn up in shootings, a movement began to restrict their manufacture and sale. Much of the outrage stemmed from the militaristic appearance of those guns, and their ability to fire rapidly.)

https://prairiestatewire.com/stories/638905763-lawmakers-eyeing-bill-to-mandate-race-based-anti-white-reading-the-reading-list-will-dominate-the-curriculum
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A number of anti-white titles stick out amongst the scores of books lawmakers are suggesting should be mandatory reading for the state’s children. That is the concept behind a list of books lawmakers are pushing on the state’s children through HB1011. The bill is sponsored by State Rep. Mary E. Flowers (D-Chicago). Nonfiction books children will be required to read include the below: . . . Despite its place atop the New York Times list of best-selling books “White Fragility” was slammed by reviewer Carlos Lozada in the Washington Post for presenting a flawed view of race relations in the United States. “The book flattens people of any ancestry into two-dimensional beings fitting predetermined narratives,” Lozada wrote. In Lozada’s view, the book appears to be a continuation of the spirit of racism rather than conciliatory in nature. “White people should be regarded not as individuals but as an undifferentiated racist collective, socialized to ‘fundamentally hate blackness’ and to institutionalize that prejudice in politics and culture. People of color, by contrast, are almost entirely powerless, and the few with influence do not wield it in the service of racial justice,” Lozada wrote of the book’s conceit. Other titles on the list have garnered similar reactions. A similar bill was introduced in the previous General Assembly but failed to gain any traction. In the last go-round critics excoriated lawmakers for placing themselves in the classroom, bypassing teachers and the individual learning goals of children. The sheer volume of reading mandated by the bill would be problematic in that it would edge out other non-biased reading already ingrained in learning plans. “(The list) outlines a highly skewed 42-book list of mandatory reading for every public elementary, middle and high school student, and includes titles such as ‘Hood Feminism,’ ‘How to Be an Antiracist’ and ‘White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism,'” Beth Feeley wrote in a 2021 column for the Chicago Tribune. “Not every book on this list reflects the critical race theory-inspired ideologies like those of included authors Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. But 42 books — almost 10,000 pages — on race? The reading list will dominate the curriculum.” Similarly, opponents point to the “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading” standards lawmakers enacted in 2021 as a flashpoint for pushing leftist narratives in classrooms. Critics say the original language included in that bill suggested teachers indoctrinate students to “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives that leverage asset thinking toward traditionally marginalized populations.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Released by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) on Dec. 29, the memo describes the “transition” of how firearms will be confiscated from gun owners in the country’s smallest province, which according to the memo, has already commenced in December. “Prince Edward Island (PE) will be used as a pilot and will be the first point of collection based on the smaller number of firearms,” said the memo, titled “2022 Minister’s Transition Book 2: Core responsibility 1—Purchase of goods and services,” as first reported by Blacklock’s Reporter. “As a result, lessons learned, gaps analysis and risk assessment would inform the phase 2 national roll-out.”)

HIGHLAND COUNTY PRESS
— COMMENT: I should write an article that compares and contrasts Biden’s ownership of his 1967 Corvette and my ownership of my 1972 Corvette which I continue to own. It has only 5,147 miles on it and is stock and like new. I have driven it extremely few miles since I started spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. It is base coupe, Steel Cities Gray, black leather interior, automatic, air conditioning, power steering, and AM-FM stereo radio. I bought it new in 1971 with insurance proceeds from the theft of my 1969 Dodge Charger SE and a bank loan. I bought that Charger with money that I had earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office while I attended UIC in 1968. I got the car loan because I had worked for IRS for 4 months, I had worked for the Chicago Heights Firestone Store part-time for 7 months and full time for 7 months before that. I stored it in my mother’s garage in Crete 1971-1984. A picture of me in the car in that garage is in Money Magazine’s 4-page February 1978 article on me. Since 1984, I have stored it in my fully insulated heated attached garage in Wheaton. Since 1995, I have stored it on a hydraulic lift in that garage. Currently my 2005 Corvette is stored underneath it. I have two security cameras pointing down the garage’s driveway.
https://highlandcountypress.com/Content/Opinions/Opinion/Article/Biden-Trump-and-the-pesky-presidential-records-act/4/22/87297
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He loves talking about what is in his garage, specifically the stock 1967 Corvette with the mighty 327-V8 that churns out 350 horsepower at the wheel and flies from 0-60mph in a respectable 5.9 seconds. Even now, after more than a half-century, the Stingray remains mint. Its paint, pristine. The color from the manufacturer, President Biden makes a point of noting in interviews, is “Goodwood Green,” and it still looks just like the day it rolled off the assembly line because the motorhead obsesses over every inch of the car, a wedding present from his father. Joe Biden loves that car so much that he overshares, making his people cringe. As vice president, he once admitted to Car and Driver Magazine that he still strips down to “my bathing suit in my driveway” to wash and wax it. He was 69 years old at the time. Other things on the floor of his garage, like documents marked “classified,” the president and his aides would rather not discuss in detail. Eight different times this week, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters she just was “not going to get into specifics” about how or why or exactly when sensitive intelligence documents made their way into the Biden family home in Wilmington, Del. “It’s not like they’re sitting out in the street,” Biden protested when asked about the documents that only individuals with security clearances are supposed to view. The intelligence and the classic car, he confirmed, were behind closed doors. His garage, it has a lock.)

FORBES
— The Importance Of Finding A Mentor – Jason Richmond
https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusinesscouncil/2023/01/20/the-importance-of-finding-a-mentor/

COMMENT: Have your critics/opponents gotten rid of your mentors?

I should write a book about what my IRS career might have been if my Democrat IRS superiors had not gotten rid of the IRS manager who had a) promoted me in 1972 and 1973, b) gotten me assigned to a high-profile developmental opportunity in 1973, and c) promoted me in 1974.

But then, to get rid of me, they a) disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forced the aforesaid IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975, c) ignored, dismissed, downplayed, and belittled my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, d) never promoted me to GS-13, e) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and f) ignored, dismissed, downplayed, and belittled my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979.

I should write a book about what my GAO career might have been if my Democrat GAO superiors had not gotten rid of the GAO manager who had a) arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980 when I was 31 years old, b) gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and c) promoted me in 1986.

In 1980, he was the Staff Manager of GAO’s Chicago Office.

But immediately after he arranged for my transfer from IRS, my Democrat GAO Chicago Office superiors replaced him with a Democrat Staff Manager who was anti-IRS, anti-union, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-Christian, anti-Protestant, anti-German America, anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, anti-those who did not start their career with GAO, anti-Association of Government Accountants, anti-Institute of Internal Auditors, and anti-those who spouse’s had good jobs. He was a heavy drinker and gambler who was obsessed with spectator sports and golf.

He did everything that he could to get me to go back to IRS.

He succeeded in a) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, b) assigning me to work for, work with, and/or supervise GAO Chicago office employees who disapproved of, if not despised, if not hated my demographics for my entire GAO career, c) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals for my entire GAO career, d) assigning me to supervise all the office’s Democrat employees who were problematic, liberal, minority, female, veteran, disabled, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time for my entire GAO career, e) turning my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates against me for my entire GAO career, f) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, and g) stopping me from ever being promoted beyond GS-13.

If he had not gone on extended sick leave because of his heavy drinking in 1985, I never would have been assigned to audits or promoted to GS-13.

But after he came back in 1987, he succeed in a) forcing the aforesaid GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for transfer from IRS in 1980, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986, b) always ranking me in the lower half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and c) helping my Democrat GAO superiors force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997.

Further, I should write a book about my past and present critics/opponents and my past and present supporters who they destroyed because they encouraged me to become a) an Assistant Republican Precinct Committeeman (RPC) in 1999, b) an appointed RPC 1999, c) an elected RPC since 2000, d) Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster in 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, e) MTRO Octoberfest Committee member in 2001- 2009, f) Wheaton Park District Prairie Path Park adopter in 2001-2020, g) American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004, e) coordinator of Pat O/Malley’s 2002 gubernatorial primary campaign in Milton Township in 2002, f) Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, g) Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, h) Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day Parades 2005-2019, i) TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, and j) an Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee member in 2008.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— COMMENT: Democrats say “DuPage sheriff Mendrick facing mounting criticism after saying he won’t enforce state’s assault weapons ban.” I hope that soon, the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, the Milton Township Republican Organization, and the other eight DuPage County Republican township organizations pass resolutions in support of Mendrick. I should write a book about past and present leaders of the aforesaid organizations who reject the Second Amendment plank in the Republican Party platform and/or reject its individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. If I was still the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman and an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, those organizations would have passed resolutions in support of Mendrick by now.

https://news.yahoo.com/dupage-sheriff-facing-mounting-criticism-010600247.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Board member Grant Eckhoff, a Republican representing District 4, said Mendrick does not have the resources to create a task force of deputy sheriffs to go door to door and start a registration program for the guns. “It’s either handle the 911 calls and do the job that he’s been doing or try and go door to door,” Eckhoff said. “Unless you want to triple his budget, I don’t think it’s realistic and the legislation isn’t realistic for him to be able to do that.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20230119/des-plaines-theatre-operator-cancels-conservative-groups-event-after-outcry
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ron Onesti did not explicitly give a reason for the cancellation in a statement Thursday night, but he referred to the controversy and suggested he and the theater received threats. “What saddens me was the amount of hate that surfaced during all of this,” he wrote. “People mailing bullets to me, asking their neighbors to fill my garbage cans with dog feces, countless hateful calls and outwardly targeting the Des Plaines Theatre, wishing its demise. And how would that have been good for the community?” On Wednesday he had defended leasing the venue to the group that’s been criticized for making queerphobic social media posts and other controversial statements. That came after LGBTQ advocates criticized the groups behind the Feb. 8 event — especially DuPage County-based Awake Illinois — and some of the scheduled speakers. Onesti described himself as a proponent of the First Amendment and said Awake Illinois has the right to hold meetings and discuss the issues it pleases. “It’s not for me to be judge and jury,” Onesti said. . .The speaker lineup included Jaimee Michell, founder of a group called Gays Against Groomers; Stephanie Trussell, recent Republican candidate for lieutenant governor; Shannon Adcock, founder of Awake Illinois and a leader of Moms for Liberty DuPage; and former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Dubiel. Awake has railed against suburban drag events, medical treatments for transgender youth and the state’s new sex education standards, among other topics.)

— National Committeeman Richard Porter Seeking to Amend IL GOP Bylaws to Permit Third Term
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2023/01/source-national-committeeman-richard-porter-seeking-to-amend-il-gop-bylaws-to-permit-third-term.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Among conservative circles in Illinois, it is no secret that IL GOP Finance Committee Chair Vince Kolber and District 3 Committeewoman Jeanne Ives have been eying a potential 2024 run for the National Committeemen positions. The two have been working together for years, as Ives stated at the December 10, 2022 SCC meeting that Kolber gave her $750,000 for her failed 2018 gubernatorial primary challenge against incumbent establishment-Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. But Porter’s new plans to change the Bylaws to remove the term limits would appear to dash Kolber’s and Ives’ hopes and may be further evidence of the deepening rift among SCC members. . .It’s also no secret that Porter has been engaging in a public relations campaign the past couple months to prove his relevance at the national level. Porter posted numerous photos of himself at the US Capitol during the speakership deliberations, including a photo sitting alone in the Speaker’s conference room. Porter, who has endorsed RNC Chair Ronna Romney-McDaniel for re-election against conservative challenger Harmeet Dhillon, also has been making press for himself in his efforts to whip up the vote for Romney-McDaniel. The US Capitol Complex adheres to very strict photography guidelines, limiting photographs from the general public to public areas of the Capitol and House and Senate office buildings. And it explains why Porter removed his photographs, sitting alone in the Speaker’s suite from his Facebook page. Recent developments in the RNC Chair election also seem to indicate that DeMonte is complicit in Porter’s efforts to eliminate term limits. Sources confirm that DeMonte, who in December had endorsed Romney-McDaniel for re-election, has quietly signaled to Dhillon that she may vote for her in the election to be held at the RNC winter meeting on January 27, 2023, but that she can’t be public about her vote because she fears retribution in her own re-election – a re-election that will not happen without an amendment to the Bylaws. The RNC Chair election is conducted by secret ballot, with Porter, DeMonte, and Tracy tendering votes on behalf of Illinois, and all three have endorsed Romney-McDaniel for re-election. The RNC winter meeting will be held at the Waldorf-Astoria Monarch Beach in Dana Point, California.)

FEDERATION FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM
— While immigration boosters like the president fixate on misleading jobless rates, the number of working-age Americans out of the labor force is at historic highs. Pinched by record influxes of low-paid migrant competition and galloping inflation, legions of former workers aren’t nearly so enthralled about their prospects. . .“If the labor-force participation rate of working-age Americans ages 16 to 64 returned to what it was in 2000 — not exactly an eternity ago — it would add 6.5 million people to the labor force.” Ushering in more than 5.5 million mostly low-skilled migrants – as Biden has done since entering the White House – won’t produce a better or more prosperous America.
