That is no way to win,” he said.)

— Apple defeats lawsuit claiming it overpaid CEO Tim Cook, others – Jonathan Stempel (COMMENT: According to my Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates, I was promoted much too fast. They were furious when I got promoted to GS-9 (currently $66,942/year) in 1972 when I was 24, to GS-11 (currently $80,994/year) in 1973, and to GS-12 (currently $97,079/year) in 1974. I had completed only 3 graduate evening business courses at Loyola when I was promoted in 1972, 7 in 1973, and 11 in 1974. I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination on my first attempt until 1979.)

— The myth of meritocracy – Yvonne Abraham (COMMENT: What are your successes in life? What do your critics/opponents attribute your successes in life to? My critics/opponents attribute my successes in life to my benefitting tremendously from discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, veteran, unmarried, parents, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant on the east side of Chicago Heights. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school and never worked outside of the home until after my father died. Because of the aforesaid, I took college preparatory courses in high school. I got and ACT score of 24. I graduated in the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School class. I worked my way through college. I earned a bachelor’s degree and three master’s degrees. I earned six professional certifications. I earned a professional license. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents are/were rich. Who bought them cars. Who paid for their college expenses. Who got them good jobs.)

— A quarter of United Methodist churches in U.S. have left during split (COMMENT: In 1961, when I was 13 years old and in 8th grade at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete ( https://www.trinitycrete.org/ and https://ilhs.org/ ), the church’s split had a tremendous impact on me. The pastor succeeded in dumping the Missouri Synod for the Wisconsin Synod. My father was one of the Church Elders who led an unsuccessful fight to stay with the Missouri Synod. To stay with the Missouri Synod, my parents transferred to Hope Lutheran in Park Forest. Since 1847, all my ancestors had always been Missouri Synod Lutheran. On my father’s side, they all had all graduated from Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. But in 1962, I graduated from a newly formed extremely small 8th grade at Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest. The church split created many divisions between those who stayed with the Missouri Synod and those who joined the Wisconsin Synod. The split ended big annual family reunions in Crete and Grant Park that had been organized by both my father’s and mother’s parents.)

Joe Biden may be the main beneficiary. – Clarence Page (COMMENT: According to my critics/opponents, none of the many big adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government took against me were because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-13, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because in 1988 I became the office’s only active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat IRS Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-12, b) disallow my travel vouchers in 1974, and c) disallow my education deductions in 1978 because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO superiors did not force me to suffer a $22,996 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO because of the aforesaid. If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my aforesaid Democrat IRS and GAO superiors would not have taken any of the aforesaid big adverse actions against me. They would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service because a) I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, e) I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and f) I became a licensed CPA in 1981.)

Mohammad Yusuf, 43, a 20-year veteran of the police department, is suing the city of Chicago because they won’t allow him to change his race designation from Caucasian, even though he “identifies as Egyptian and African American,” according to CWB Chicago. In 2004, when Yusef joined the force, the department only offered Caucasian, Black and Hispanic as race designations. Now, the Chicago Police Department reportedly lets new recruits choose from over nine different race designations and allows officers to alter their gender identity if desired. But in Yusef’s case, the department has a “blanket prohibition” for race changes, CWB Chicago reported. The lawsuit states: “The Racial Identity Policy Ban facially and intentionally discriminates against certain individuals based on personally identifiable characteristics like race,” CWB Chicago reported. Yusef’s complaint suggests that his career was hindered due to his race designation, according to the outlet. “Despite Yusuf’s exemplary qualifications and the purported race-neutral policy of the Merit System, Yusuf has been repeatedly bypassed for promotion in favor of less qualified candidates, based on their race, specifically African American officers, some of whom had disciplinary issues and were not suitable for the responsibilities of a sergeant,” the complaint said, according to CWB Chicago. Although Yusef took a 23 and Me DNA test to prove his Egyptian heritage at the request of the CPD, the department remained unwilling to approve his request, according to the outlet. The CPD does not reportedly require transgender officers to provide proof of their “transition” before updating their personal records.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago has one of the largest income inequality gaps in the country – Jack Grieve (COMMENT: To remedy that income inequality, in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and they gave my job to my Black subordinate. In today’s dollars, my annual income dropped by $84,910/year or 57%. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $150,075/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $65,165/year or only 43% of what my GAO salary was. Further, to remedy that income inequality, in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my income dropped by $22,996/year or 21%. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $110,020/year. My GAO salary was only $87,024/year or only 79% of what my IRS salary was. According to Democrats and RINOs, I have always been overpaid.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A household in Chicago must bring home an annual salary of at least $149,219 to be among the city’s top 20% of earners. On the other hand, any household earning less than $27,255 is in the bottom quintile bracket. That means the city’s top one-fifth of earners make at least 5.47 times as much as the bottom one-fifth of earners.)

I should write a book about those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffered since 2005. I would focus on the candidates who suffered losses and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, and Illinois Center Right Coalition. I would focus on conservative and religious leaders and activists.)

Democrat leaders ever-increasingly use DEI to take opportunities away from Republicans who are the aforesaid. My Democrat superiors in the federal government took opportunities away from me big time.

— Your Accounting Career Plan (COMMENT: In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, if I could do it over again, I would have overcome my fear of not being able to pass the CPA examination much sooner than I did. I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

— White supremacy goes back to ‘early church’: Oxford professor – MICAIAH BILGER (COMMENT: In my defense, I have always stressed that all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois.)
https://www.thecollegefix.com/white-supremacy-goes-back-to-early-church-oxford-professor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The most egregious thing that we have to wrestle with is the normalization of white supremacy,” Reddie said. Although Christianity “was created as a movement for those who are marginalized and oppressed,” he said white leaders quickly began using the religion as a weapon to seize land and oppress other cultures. Reddie traced the distortion back to the early Christians who blamed the Jews for killing Jesus, instead of Roman leader Pontius Pilate, according to the report. “Pilate represents white supremacy, and white supremacy now becomes normalized and effectively becomes the religion of Jesus, the religion of God,” the professor said. As time went on, more and more people began to believe Jesus was a white European, like them, Reddie said.
Baptist News Global reports: That’s why few white Christians flinched at the claim that Jesus called European and American Christians to travel the globe to oppress brown- and Black-skinned people, he said, explaining that a Christianity suffused with white supremacy enabled plantation owners in the American South to see no contradiction between their faith and owning other human beings. “They saw people who are other as inferior and that it was OK to kill or enslave them for their own good.” Those attitudes clearly continue to exist and in the U.S. are evident in the rise of Trumpism, the British scholar said. Because white supremacy has been connected with Christianity for so long, he said it has “distorted the very fabric of what we call Christianity and the nature of church.” The Baylor conference is part of a “three-year sequences of programs on confronting racism in the white church and seeking God’s justice,” according to the event website. More than a dozen pastors, theologians, and Christian leaders participated. Baylor is a private, Protestant Christian university in Texas. Earlier this year, a Catholic university professor also linked white supremacy with the early Christian church in a new book, “Christian Supremacy.” The author, Fordham University Professor Magda Teter, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that white supremacists’ ideology “is rooted in Christian ideas of social and religious hierarchy.”)

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2024/02/23/hostin-conspiracy-gop-only-support-ivf-stave-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good things don’t last long on ABC’s The View. After defending embryos as children earlier in the week, staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) found her angle of attack against Republicans on Friday, in the wake of an Alabama Supreme Court ruling on in vitro fertilization. According to her, the only reason Republicans were now coming out in defense of IVF was because it was how they planned to stave off white people being replaced by minorities. “On the one hand, they want you to not have an abortion and then they also don’t want you to have more children. Make up your minds. Whatever that means,” Friday moderator Joy Behar kvetched, keeping with the narrative that the GOP was trying to stop people from using IVF, for some reason. Before cracking open the lid on her crazy conspiracy theory, Hostin suggested she was on the trail of something major. “I think they do want you to have more children and they just not saying the quiet part out loud,” she teased. “Which is, multicultural Americans are going to become the majority population by 2050,” she began to unwind her crazy. “By 2050, the Hispanic Americans are expected to have the most population growth, an increase of about six percent, while the white population is expected to decrease by about 11 percent. At this time, the birth rate for white Americans in this country has been falling since the great recession and it’s dropped almost 23 percent between 2007 and 2022.”)

I would focus on the aforesaid who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me since 2000.)

FROM NATIONAL CENTER-LEFT LEANING SOURCES

THE HILL
— CPAC is denying press passes to ‘left-wing’ journalists – DOMINICK MASTRANGELO (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and I reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or who have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)

CNN
— Democrats ask “CPAC or TPAC?” and say “This year’s conservative gathering is all about Trump.” (COMMENT: What has discouraged you from attending CPACs? For me, it is CPAC’s declining emphasis on the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.)

HECHINGER REPORT
— Did your college application essay mention race? Talk to us about it. (COMMENT: In my 1971 Loyola and 1976 DePaul applications, I stressed that I was an IRS Revenue Officer and that my employee manual encouraged me to take graduate business and accounting courses and that I wanted to take those courses to maintain and improve my job skills as an IRS employee. But in 1978, to get rid of me, my IRS superiors disallowed the courses that I had taken ignoring/rejecting what I had stated in my applications and falsely arguing that I the courses a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) qualified me for a “new trade or business.” They would not have done that nor would they have disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974 and gotten rid of the IRS manager in 1975 who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974 if I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I would not have complained about the aforesaid discrimination if my Democrat IRS superiors had not taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

PSYCHOLOGY TODAY
— Anything seems obvious, after the fact. – Angela Duckworth Ph.D. (COMMENT: What have you spent lots of your time, effort, and/or money on? In retrospect and with benefit of hindsight, what did you learn? Would you have done those things if you knew then what you know now? If so, what would you have done differently? I should write a book about that. I would focus on my serving as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, and d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition officer 2003-2007. I would focus on those who took the most/biggest adverse actions against me because I did the aforesaid. I would focus on those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.)

— President Biden announces more student loan debt being forgiven. More than 100,000 student loan borrowers are getting some good news. Another $1 billion of student loan debt has been forgiven. (COMMENT: Not that I could have gotten a student loan, but because I worked my way through college, I was able to a) graduate debt-free from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 and owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, b) buy a new Corvette after my Charger was stolen 14 months after I graduated, c) buy a new town home in University Park 25 months after I graduated, d) buy a studio condo in downtown Chicago 48 months I graduated, e) buy a one bedroom condo there 72 months after I graduated, and f) buy a home in Wheaton with my wife 92 months after I graduated. In addition, I was able to pay for graduate evening courses in business at Loyola 1972-1976 and in accounting at DePaul 1976-1980. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary increased from $54,728/year in 1971 to $110,020/year in 1979. IRS promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974.)

In the late-1980s, my wife and I gave up trying to have children without trying IVF. Our doctors told us that because we both had serious fertility problems, success would have been very unlikely. We did not adopt or become foster parents. My Democrat GAO superiors used that against me viciously. They falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted not only that I lied about trying to have children, but that we were disgusting selfish DINKs (dual income, no kids) who never wanted to have children. They used that slander to punish me severely in 1989. They did the aforesaid because I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit in late 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

— What are the demographics of your county? How have those demographics changed? As more and more and more voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats move into DuPage County, Democrat candidates get more and more and more votes in DuPage County. Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. How have the leaders of your Republican county and township party organizations responded to demographic changes? I should write a book about how the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization have responded to demographic changes since 2000. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

— Illinois GOP Slams Gov. Pritzker Over Migrant Funding – Nick Koutsobinas
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/illinois-gop-jb-pritzker/2024/02/21/id/1154496/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Democrat Gov. J.B. Pritzker, during his State of the State address on Wednesday, called for a budget proposal of $182 million to be directed toward the healthcare costs of illegal migrants in his state, the Center Square reported. Framing the issue as one of a broken immigration system as opposed to an open-border policy constructed by the Biden administration, the governor said: “I will not join the chorus of people in this country or in this chamber who eagerly look to slam shut an immigration door that was once open to our ancestors.” Pritzker then blamed Republicans in the United States Senate for not agreeing to what was nominally dubbed a border bill that tied more funding to Ukraine than the border and was negotiated in secret apart from Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla. “Why did every single Republican run away from something that they claimed they desperately wanted,” Pritzker asked a crowd of Illinois politicians. “Because Donald Trump told them to, and they’re afraid of him.” The Illinois governor also blamed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for transporting migrants to Chicago and other sanctuary cities. But local conservative politicians say Pritzker is to blame for his state’s migrant crisis. “You can’t literally invite people to come here with this insane sanctuary state policy and then complain that we don’t have the resources when they arrive,” state Rep. Blaine Wilhour, R-Beecher City, said after the governor’s address. Pritzker also outlined that part of the proposed funding would go to transitioning illegal migrants from temporary shelters to permanent housing. State Rep. Ryan Spain, R-Peoria, however, said there are better uses for the state’s budget. He said that “$2.8 billion dollars of state of Illinois spending” is going to “undocumented immigrant healthcare or migrant assistance. It is a gigantic sum of money that is crowding out other spending priorities that I think are worthwhile.” Newsmax could not verify the figure but has contacted Spain for comment. Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Tony McCombie, R-Savanna, has called for a statewide moratorium on accepting migrants, citing high expenses.)
— CPAC Enforces New Rule Barring Left-Wing Journalists – Jim Thomas (COMMENT: I have always fully disclosed that I am conservative. I attended many CPACs, although not recently, and reported on them as a journalist for GOPUSA. According to my Democrat and RINO critics/opponents, you are not a “real” journalist unless you claim to be nonpartisan. RINOs are anti-conservative. I should write a book about high-profile RINO event organizers in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton who have barred me from attending their events and/or have had me thrown out of their events since 2000.)
https://www.newsmax.com/amp/politics/cpac-rule-gop/2024/02/21/id/1154466/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), chaired by Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union, has implemented a significant policy change, disallowing credentials for left-wing journalists, reported Mediaite. Schlapp stated, “CPAC has a new rule. If you’re a propagandist, you can buy a ticket, like everyone else, but you’re not in the media, and we’re not going to credential you by saying you’re in the media.” He criticized certain media outlets for their alleged anti-Trump and anti-conservative stance, asserting that such bias undermines the credibility of journalism. Schlapp announced this decision as the conference commenced near Washington, D.C., igniting reactions and discussions about media access and bias. In a conversation with Schlapp, Steve Bannon articulated concerns about what he perceives as biased reporting, accusing some journalists of engaging in “information warfare.” In response, Schlapp highlighted a perceived trend of targeting conservatives with unfavorable coverage, emphasizing a need for increased discernment in media accreditation. Acknowledging the existence of left-wing journalists who provide balanced coverage, Schlapp maintained that CPAC’s decision aims to address what he sees as pervasive bias within the media landscape. He cited instances where journalists selectively target conservatives, contributing to what he described as a hostile environment for those with differing viewpoints. Responding to questions regarding CPAC’s evolving identity and criticism of its increasingly MAGA-centric focus, Schlapp defended the conference’s trajectory. He dismissed concerns over relevance and emphasized a commitment to principles aligned with the conservative movement. Additionally, Schlapp shared an exchange between his wife and a Huffington Post reporter who was denied credentials, expressing satisfaction with what he described as a reaction from “leftist propagandists” who expected preferential treatment as a “real” journalist. “But as we know what’s happened to these corporate media entities is they’re 100%. If you listen to MSNBC, it’s 100% anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-conservative every moment of every day. They never have any kind of honest treatment of anything,” Schlapp said.)

— A closer look at which states best represent America — and which fall short. Survey says Utah is furthest from the overall representation of the U.S., while Illinois is closest. – Emma Pitts (COMENT: Those who have the following demographics vote for Democrats: liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, unmarried, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Because voters who have the aforesaid demographics vote for Democrats and because Illinois voters overwhelmingly vote for Democrats, Illinois voters must overwhelmingly have the aforesaid demographics. Those who vote for Democrats overwhelmingly promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, diminishment of Second Amendment rights, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, and age discrimination and that is exactly what Democrat Illinois elected official promote. If you backed out Chicago voters, and especially if you backed out Collar County voters too, Illinois would be to the right of Utah. In the 2022 Illinois gubernatorial election, Republican Bailey won in all but 17 of Illinois’ 102 counties.)
https://www.deseret.com/2024/2/21/24079255/united-states-represent-electoral-presidential-candidates-caucuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No single state can perfectly represent the United States in all aspects due to the country’s vast diversity, but Illinois had a “94% similarity when all demographics are averaged.” “It’s most similar in terms of gender, age, the share of residents born in the U.S. and the unemployment rate, with more than 99% similarity for each of those metrics,” according to the survey. Regarding representation, Utah ranked last place in the following categories, making it an atypical representation of the country: Religious composition of adults. Wealth gap. Age characteristics. However, every state contributes uniquely to the nation’s fabric, and the concept of being the “worst” or “best” representative is largely subjective and dependent on the measures used for comparison.)

The Democrats who ran IRS in 1971 hired me as a GS-7 (currently $54,728/year) Revenue Officer because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, or someone whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time who would take the job.

— Migrant crisis stirs tension in Oak Park, but village mounts a supportive response – Judith Crown
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/equity/migrant-crisis-arrived-oak-park-cold-night
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scaman says Cook County is reimbursing the village for monthly expenses of more than $300,000. “At this point, we’re going to see all the money we invested,” she said. At its Jan. 23 meeting, Oak Park trustees authorized staff to pursue a grant of $1.9 million through the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus. The village received notice the following week that grant was approved. The funding will be used to provide aid to asylum-seekers through June 30. That will enable the village to continue helping migrants in a different shelter because asylum-seekers staying at the Carleton and West Cook YMCA must leave by the end of February.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— The uncomfortable truth – Jonathan Panton
https://www.oakpark.com/2024/02/20/the-uncomfortable-truth/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some may live in denial, but entering the United States illegally is a crime. The village of Oak Park has continually used the term “asylum-seeker” to hide the truth. First, the term “asylum-seeker” is misleading. Applicants seeking asylum protection have the burden of (1) proving that they suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution; (2) the applicant is a member of a protected ground (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, political opinion); (3) there is a connection between the harm the applicant suffered and their protected ground; and (4) the applicant either fears harm from the home country’s government or the home country is unable or unwilling to control a private person. INA§101(a)(42)(A). Asylum is designed to protect those who meet these four elements. In the fiscal year of 2023, asylum relief was denied in the majority of cases. While some individuals are genuinely escaping persecution, there are many others who unlawfully enter the United States for economic opportunities. This does not warrant asylum protection. The primary job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. In 2023, Customs and Border Patrol had 3,201,144 encounters with illegal immigrants. A serious concern is the lack of vetting of illegal immigrants in the United States. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens stated on X (Twitter) that his agents arrested an average of 47 individuals every day in 2023 who had “serious criminal histories.” Moreover, those figures only included individuals who have been apprehended. In 2023, 860,000 “gotaways” unlawfully entered the United States. These individuals pose safety concerns since their criminal backgrounds and whereabouts are unknown to law enforcement agencies. Oak Park’s Village Board broke its duty to residents by approving a $1.9 million grant providing various services for immigrants, some of whom may be illegal. The $360,000 allocated toward giving illegal immigrants various legal services is wasteful. The role of the government is to provide public services like police, fire, roads, schools. I don’t recall the village paying for residents’ legal services spent appealing their outrageous property tax bills. Yet Oak Park has no issue doling out money for legal representation to individuals whose first act in the United States may have been a crime.)

Nevertheless, thanks to my outstanding parents, with money I earned, I earned a bachelor’s degree when I was 21 and master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48. I earned professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48. I earned a professional license when I was 32. In terms of buying new cars, how successful have you been compared to your parents? My father did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door 6-cylinder 1967 Chevrolet. Thanks to my outstanding parents, with money I earned, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint when I was 17, a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 when I was 19, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE when I was 20, and a new 1972 Corvette when I was 23.)

Will it be those who are wealthy, own big homes, have empty bedrooms, have donated money to Democrats and/or to RINOs, are minority, are female, are LGBTQ, despise/hate Trump, etc.? – Dave Diersen

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Government shouldn’t have the power to discriminate based on race – Julian Adorney (COMMENT: Life is a zero-sum-game. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to minorities and/or females is to discriminate against Whites and/or males. My Democrat superiors in the federal government used Affirmative Action and DEI big time to give preference to their Democrat employees who were minority and/or female. Ever-increasingly, to get more votes from minorities and/or females, Democrat and RINO politicians use DEI to give preference to minorities and/or females.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/2861205/government-shouldnt-have-the-power-to-discriminate-based-on-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In his new book The End of Race Politics, Coleman Hughes takes aim at the spread of diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology in the U.S. government. Instead of DEI that discriminates on the basis of race, he argues, we should adopt colorblindness as a national policy. What is colorblindness? Hughes defines it this way: “We should treat people without regard to race, both in our public policy and in our private lives.” One reason to adopt colorblindness as a national policy is that the government cannot be trusted with such a weighty power as picking and choosing which skin colors to favor and which ones to disadvantage. The government’s race-based classifications are completely arbitrary. Hughes notes that the current five racial categories (black, Hispanic, white, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American/Alaska Native) were developed by the Carter administration and are enormously inconsistent. For example, Pakistanis are considered to be Asian. But Afghans right next door are considered to be white. The arbitrariness with which these lines were drawn isn’t fixable; it’s baked into the cake. Race is a social construct and is at least somewhat fuzzy, so racial categorization means the government will inevitably rely on crude measures to try to decide who fits into which bucket. . .There’s an even bigger problem: History shows that governments can’t be trusted with the power to discriminate. Slavery was the law of the land for 89 years (1776-1865), and Jim Crow for another 100 (1865-1965). For most of our nation’s history, the U.S. government wielded its power to place a boot on the neck of people of a specific skin color. A mere six years ago, then-president Donald Trump was reported as referring to Haiti and African nations as “s***hole countries” from which we shouldn’t want more immigrants. Is this really the government that social justice warriors want to endow with the power to make more decisions on the basis of race? This point should be especially salient for proponents of DEI. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the most popular advocates of DEI in the United States, proposed the creation of a new Department of Anti-Racism with totalitarian powers to police Americans’ speech and actions. But in How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi said that the United States has “stage four” racism (comparable to stage four cancer). He says racism and white supremacy have “spread to nearly every part of the body politic.” If the United States is as irredeemably racist as he claims, who does he imagine will end up staffing his new Department of Anti-Racism? Where will he find the saints necessary to discriminate in the “right” way rather than use their enormous powers to discriminate the “wrong” way? Hughes notes that the civil rights movement and the abolitionist movement fought for the idea that our government should be colorblind. The abolitionist Wendell Phillips said in a speech in 1867, “When once the nation is absolutely, irrevocably pledged to the principle that there shall be no recognition of race by the United States or by State law, then the work of the great anti-slavery movement which commenced in 1831, is accomplished.”)

The downpayment came from what earned a) working for IRS for 15 months, b) working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for 18 months, and c) working full-time for that store for 7 months before that. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola in 1972. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $54,728/year in 1971 and $66,942/year in 1972.)
https://www.heritage.org/markets-and-finance/commentary/scranton-joe-and-the-temple-doom-spending
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of young Americans seem to have given up on their economic future, turning instead to “doom spending.” Adults under 30 are moving back in with their parents at rates not seen since the Great Depression, giving up on the American dream of homeownership. So long as the uniparty in D.C. keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow, America’s youth will believe there’s no tomorrow for them.)

In September of 1997, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and gave my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.)

— Congrats on Your Retirement. Time to Find a New Job. Hit by rising costs and boredom, retirees weigh going back to work. – Clare Ansberry (COMMENT: I should write a book about how impossible it was for me to get a job that would have been appropriate for someone with my work experience, education, professional certifications, and professional license after my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Employers do not want employees like me who fight political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. Employers do not employees like me who have sued their employers. Employers do not want employees like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate. Employers do not want employees like me who will not cover up their wrong doing. Employers do not want employees like me who will not discriminate against anyone including those who are conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. Employers want cheap labor. In today’s dollars, my ending GAO salary was $150,075/year. Employers want employees who help them meet their Affirmative Action and DEI quotas, goals, and targets.)
