WASHINGTON TIMES
— Gunman who shot Trump opened fire from nearby rooftop, killed by agents
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2024/jul/13/gunman-who-shot-trump-opened-fire-from-nearby-roof/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Authorities have not identified the gunman, but The New York Post identified him as Thomas Matthew Crooks, 20, of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, about 40 miles south of the site of the campaign rally. The gunman had a rifle and opened fire from the roof of a building outside the campaign venue in Butler County, Pennsylvania. Agents returned fire, and photographs later showed law enforcement officers with the man’s body on the roof. At a midnight press conference, law enforcement authorities said the gunman was not carrying ID, and the FBI was still working to verify his identity. FBI agent Kevin Rojek said authorities do not yet have “an identified motive,” nor would he specify the type of gun used. Mr. Rojek also said authorities used “assets” to check “suspicious packages” near the shooter’s body after he was killed. State police said all three shooting victims at the rally were adult males. They did not provide identifications. A Trump supporter said he saw the man with a rifle crawling on top of the roof of a building behind the campaign rally stage. According to the eyewitness, as reported to the BBC, rally-goers outside the event spotted the man “bear crawling” across the roof, carrying a rifle. The witnesses frantically alerted law enforcement and were surprised when Mr. Trump was not immediately ushered from the stage. “We’re pointing at the guy, crawling up the roof,” the witness said. “He had a rifle, you could clearly see he had a rifle. I’m thinking to myself, why is Trump still speaking? Why have they not pulled him off the stage?” The witness said he alerted Secret Service on the roof to the crawling man with the rifle, but Mr. Trump was not removed from the stage. “The next thing you know, five shots rang out,” the witness said, adding he is “100%” certain the shots came from the rifle of the man crawling across the roof. Mr. Trump was struck on the right ear but survived and is reported to be “fine.” One rally attendee was killed and two others were critically injured, the Secret Service said.)

https://www.foxnews.com/us/who-was-thomas-matthew-crooks-donald-trumps-attempted-assassin
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He was one of nearly two dozen students from the school to earn a $500 “star award” from the National Math and Science Initiative. An online recording of his graduation ceremony shows him walking the stage to minimal applause and briefly posing with a school official, the New York Times reported. A search by Fox News Digital revealed Crooks would have turned 21 years old this September. He had no reported criminal or traffic citations and no reported bankruptcies, liens or foreclosures. Crooks was a registered Republican, according to voting records, but had only participated in the Nov. 8, 2022, state election due to his age.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance, who has been identified as a potential vice presidential running mate for Trump, said on X that the violence was “not just some isolated incident. The central premise of the Biden campaign is that President Donald Trump is an authoritarian fascist who must be stopped at all costs. That rhetoric led directly to President Trump’s attempted assassination.”)
— The FBI early Sunday named 20-year-old Thomas Matthew Crooks of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, as the subject involved in the shooting. – AP
https://chicago.suntimes.com/nation-world/2024/07/13/donald-trump-whisked-off-stage-in-pennsylvania-after-loud-noises-rang-through-the-crowd
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Law enforcement recovered an AR-style rifle at the scene, according to a third person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation. An AP analysis of more than a dozen videos and photos from the scene of the Trump rally, as well as satellite imagery of the site, shows the shooter was able to get astonishingly close to the stage where the former president was speaking. A video posted to social media and geolocated by the AP shows the body of a person wearing gray camouflage lying motionless on the roof of a building at AGR International Inc., a manufacturing plant just north of the Butler Farm Show grounds where Trump’s rally was held. The roof where the person lay was less than 150 meters (164 yards) from where Trump was speaking, a distance from which a decent marksman could reasonably hit a human-sized target. For reference, 150 meters is a distance at which U.S. Army recruits must hit a scaled human-sized silhouette to qualify with the M-16 rifle. The AR-15, like the shooter at the Trump rally had, is the semi-automatic civilian version of the military M-16. Asked at the press conference whether law enforcement did not know the shooter was on the roof until he began firing, Kevin Rojek, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Pittsburgh Field Office, responded that “that is our assessment at this time” “It is surprising” that the gunman was able to open fire on the stage before the Secret Service killed him, he added. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, whose department oversees the Secret Service, said officials were engaged with the Biden and Trump campaigns and “taking every possible measure to ensure their safety and security.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Echoing the sentiment that the shooter was likely politically motivated, Jeanne Ives, a former Illinois state representative and gubernatorial candidate, said, “These are scary times. No one knows the motive of the shooter, but this political violence likely stems from someone who felt threatened by the prospect of a Trump presidency, which is ridiculous,” Ives said. “The shooter is obviously deranged. But what does this mean? There’s no doubt people feel powerless against a powerful centralized government,” Ives said. . .“The deepening political divide is dangerous and any political violence is unacceptable,” McCombie said in a statement. “Gunshots cannot silence our collective need for change.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents. According to them, no one reads my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters, but nevertheless, my newsletters have caused all the defeats that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000.)

YAHOO
— The FBI has named the man who shot Donald Trump as Thomas Matthew Crooks, a 20-year-old registered Republican from Pennsylvania. Crooks was reportedly wearing a t-shirt bearing the emblem of a pro-gun Youtube channel when he was killed on Saturday by a special forces sniper after firing three shots at the former US president. . .Reports said that heavily-armed US security agents have raided Crooks’ home in Bethel Park on the edge of Pittsburgh, roughly an hour’s drive south of Butler, the small and hard-up post-industrial town where he tried to kill Trump. The FBI said that Crooks was not carrying any identification when he made the assassination attempt and had to be identified using DNA samples. . .US security forces said that they had recovered an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle lying by Crook’s body. AR-15 semi-automatic rifles have been used in several mass shootings in the US and have become the focus of the gun debate. Photos also showed a member of the US security forces standing over Crooks’ body. Crooks was wearing beige cargo-style shorts and a grey T-shirt bearing the logo of a pro-gun Youtube channel called Demolition Ranch. A registered Republican  Videos and photos on the internet showed Crooks to be a tall, slender, white man who wore glasses and had long sandy-brown hair. Voter-registration data showed that Crooks was a registered Republican voter but on Jan 20, 2021, two weeks after pro-Trump alt-right supporters stormed the White House, Crooks gave $15 to a grassroots Democratic group. Crooks didn’t have a criminal record. A video showed him graduating from a local school in 2022 and winning a prize for math and science.

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/possible-security-lapses-focus-after-trump-rally-shooting-2024-07-14/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican lawmakers said they would launch swift investigations into how a person managed to evade Secret Service agents and climb onto the roof of a building near where former U.S. President Donald Trump was speaking at an election rally and fire multiple shots before being killed. Mike Johnson, speaker of the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, said panels in the chamber will call officials from the Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI for hearings soon. The House oversight panel called Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle to testify on July 22. While information about the incident was still sparse, early media reports said the shooter was outside the security perimeter of the rally venue in Butler, Pennsylvania. One person interviewed by the BBC said he had seen the man with gun and tried unsuccessfully to alert police and the Secret Service.
Trump supporters blasted the Secret Service, which is responsible for protecting Trump as a former U.S. president. Billionaire Elon Musk called for the agency’s leadership to resign. “How was a sniper with a full rifle kit allowed to bear crawl onto the closest roof to a presidential nominee,” asked conservative activist Jack Posobiec on social media site X. FBI Special Agent Kevin Rojek, speaking at a press briefing, called the number of shots the attacker was able to fire “surprising.” The Secret Service did not have a representative in that press briefing late on Saturday, which included FBI and state law enforcement officials.
The Secret Service said shortly after the shooting that it has begun an investigation and briefed Democratic President Joe Biden, Trump’s rival in the Nov. 5 election, though the agency did not immediately respond to additional requests for comment regarding its protocols. The Pennsylvania State Police referred questions to the Secret Service. Ben Maser said he was outside the rally perimeter, listening to Trump, when he noticed two officers seemingly looking for someone. Maser, a 41-year old welder, started scanning the area too. “I saw the guy on the roof. I told the officer that he was up there. He went about looking for him,” said Maser. . .Paul Eckloff, a former Secret Service agent who retired in 2020, said agents would have surveyed all the rooftops with a line of sight ahead of time. “This person either concealed themselves until they became a threat, or were not a threat until they revealed their weapons,” said Eckloff.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: While law-enforcement officials haven’t given details on the shooting suspect’s identity or a motive—and former President Donald Trump has said so as well—some Republicans are already making unsubstantiated claims that President Biden is responsible for the incident at the Butler, Pa., rally. “Today is not just some isolated incident. The central premise of the Biden campaign is that President Donald Trump is an authoritarian fascist who must be stopped at all costs,” Sen. J.D. Vance (R., Ohio), who is considered a possible Trump running mate, posted on X. “That rhetoric led directly to President Trump’s attempted assassination.” Vivek Ramaswamy, who competed against Trump in the 2024 Republican primaries, made a similar claim. “First they sued him. Then they prosecuted him. Then they tried to take him off the ballot,” he wrote on X. “Biden’s inevitable ritual condemnation of political violence today (when it comes) will be insufficient and irrelevant. No amount of verbiage today changes the toxic national climate that led to this tragedy.” A handful of Republican lawmakers posted similar comments on social media, insinuating political motivations and blaming Biden, who condemned the incident in a speech from Delaware and said he had reached out to Trump directly. Local law-enforcement officials and the Secret Service said they are investigating the incident but have so far released few details.)

Matthew Crooks said he was still trying to find out “what the hell is going on,” and declined to talk about his son until he spoke with law enforcement.)

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. How do the following view Salvi: a) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, b) the leaders of your Republican county party organization, c) the leaders of your Republican township/ward party organization, d) your Republican state senator and representative, e) Republican leaders of your county, township, and municipality, f) Republican candidates on the November 5, 2024 ballot in my precinct, g) conservative leaders and activists in your area, h) religious leaders and activists in your area, and i) your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain? Because Salvi is conservative, anticipate/expect that the aforesaid who are anti-conservative, that is, who are anti-platform Republican, that is, who are anti-Republican, do not view Salvi favorably, and especially the aforesaid who promote abortion.

Those who oppose Salvi promote the Democrat Party platform, that is, they promote a) dependency on government and charity, b) LGBTQ, c) abortion, d) mass/illegal immigration, e) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, f) diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and g) Affirmative Action and DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— New chairman tries to unite fractured Illinois GOP heading into Milwaukee convention. – RICK PEARSON and JEREMY GORNER  (COMMENT: The Democrat Party exists to promote liberal principles. The Republican Party exists to promote conservative principles. Democrats want Republicans to lose. Democrats want Republicans to dump everything that is conservative and to dump everyone that is conservative.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/07/13/new-chairman-tries-to-unite-fractured-illinois-gop-heading-into-milwaukee-convention/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Salvi won the chairmanship with about 60% of the weighted vote against state Rep. John Cabello of Machesney Park, a Rockford suburb, in an initial round of voting after Aaron Del Mar, the Palatine Republican Township committeeman, withdrew from the contest. In a final tally, 16 of the 17 members voted for Salvi, with one abstention, said GOP sources who were not authorized to speak publicly about the committee’s deliberations. Cabello’s candidacy to be “interim” chairman until after the Nov. 5 election was backed by forces aligned with the controversial Shaw, who still sits on the state central committee despite losing his party title and looked to exert some power within the party, the GOP sources said. Cabello said he wanted to serve as a caretaker to “keep the train on the tracks while they do their due diligence to find someone else” to serve as chairman. . .In an interview ahead of the chairman vote, Salvi said she has been “very active with the party, supporting candidates up and down the state of Illinois, attending events where invited and making my case to the people willing to listen how Illinois is really no different than the states that surround us.” Acknowledging Trump’s previous losses in Illinois and concerns by some Republicans that his presence on the ballot has dragged down Republicans in down ballot contests, Salvi said she believes the 2024 election will be different because of voters’ dissatisfaction with Biden and his policies. Biden “basically pulled a bait and switch,” she said. “People are hurting. Families are hurting. And they look at their lives under the four years of President Trump and they look at their lives of the last 3 1/2 years and people are hurting.” “We’re going to have an angry vote out there. Not just Republicans. People who have never voted before. They’re coming out in droves to support something different because they feel as though the promises made were not kept,” Salvi said. “The policies of the Biden administration have hurt families, have hurt Illinois families and voters. And people are recognizing that, which is why I think that the middle, center-left is coming on board.” Tracy will retain the chairmanship through the end of the national convention in Milwaukee, while Salvi, as incoming chair, is expected to join U.S. Rep. Mary Miller, the chair of the Illinois delegation, at convention-related party organizational events. Miller is a member of the far right House Freedom Caucus, an ally of U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and actively sought and won Trump’s endorsement for her reelection efforts. . .Republican convention delegates in Milwaukee will be asked to approve a slimmed down national party platform that in some respects is less conservative than the Illinois Republican platform. The national party platform proclaims that it was “because of us” that the U.S. Supreme Court’ overturned Roe v. Wade, returning the issue of legality of abortion to the states, in recognition of the conservative justices appointed by Trump. But it does not call for a national abortion ban, as many abortion opponents had sought. The Illinois GOP’s state platform approved in May continued its long-standing expression of support for “a human life amendment to the federal and Illinois constitutions affirming the right to life of unborn children.” The state GOP also approved a resolution attacking Illinois Democrats for their “extremist pro-abortion agenda.” Democrats successfully used the high court’s decision to overturn Roe as a rallying cry in the 2022 midterm elections and are heavily promoting reproductive rights in the 2024 campaign. The Illinois GOP state platform also continues to oppose same-sex marriage, stating that “the ideal environment for children is within a two-parent family based on the principle of marriage between one man and one woman” and backing a constitutional amendment to that effect. . .Salvi, the new Illinois GOP chair, is an attorney who mounted an unsuccessful challenge to Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Hoffman Estates in the 2022 general election, losing by more than 15 percentage points. Her platform on the campaign trail was typical of many Republicans today: She opposed abortion rights, though when asked about the prospect of a federal abortion ban that would outlaw the procedure in all states, she said she thinks laws regulating abortion are “best made by individual states” — in line with Trump’s latest position. She also expressed support for constructing a wall along the southern border with Mexico to halt illegal immigration, one of Trump’s central goals during his single presidential term. During a Daily Herald candidate forum for the 2022 GOP primary, Salvi also resisted saying whether the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. “Joe Biden is our president,” Salvi said. “I wish we had a different president to meet this moment, but we don’t.” Salvi also ran for the U.S. House in 2006 but lost in the Republican primary. Her husband, Al, was elected as a state representative in 1992 and served two terms before making unsuccessful bids for U.S. Senate in 1996 and for secretary of state in 1998.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Republican candidates and elected officials who walked with the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) entry in Wheaton’s Independence Day parade included Jeff Castle, Grant Eckhoff, Amy Grant, Richard Jorgensen, Seth Lewis, Amber Quirk, and Kenton Skarin. I walked with the MTRO entry, but according to one of the aforesaid, because I did not wear a MTRO shirt or a shirt with one of the candidates’ or elected officials’ names on it, I did not really walk with the MTRO entry. According to my critics/opponents, the more that I do to help elect a candidate, the more votes that candidate loses. I should write a book about Republican participation in Wheaton Independence Day parades since 1978. I started serving as the Republican fundraiser for the parades in 2005, but my anti-conservative, that is, anti-Republican critics/opponents ended that in 2021. In my book, I would focus on those who have worked the hardest to diminish/stop Republican participation in the parades. – Dave Diersen

GOUSA ILLINOIS
— Yesterday, before the parade started, I had a conversation with one of the leaders of my critics/opponents in Wheaton. He justified the many big adverse actions that he and his followers have taken against me since the 1980s, including ending my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021. According to him, I cause all my own problems. What did I do? During the 1980s, I successfully fought Wheaton’s efforts to install a traffic signal at Harrison and President and I sued Wheaton, its favorite developer, Milton Township, and DuPage County. More recently, I led successful efforts to stop video gambling and the sale of pot in Wheaton.

They especially blame me for George Ryan not seeking a second term, Jim Ryan’s and Jim Durkin’s losses in 2002, Andy McKenna’s loss in 2004, Bill Brady’s and Judy Baar Topinka’s losses in 2006, Bill Brady’s loss in 2010, Mark Kirk’s loss in 2016, Paul Hinds’ and Bruce Rauner’s and Peter Roskam’s losses in 2018, and Greg Hart’s and Richard Irvin’s losses in 2022.)

— Chicago’s minimum wage to increase Monday. Here’s a breakdown of the changes. Since increasing to $15 in 2021, the hourly minimum wage increases annually according to changes in the Consumer Price Index or at a rate of 2.5%, whichever is lower, according to Mayor Johnson’s office. (COMMENT: Have you ever worked for the minimum wage? I earned the minimum wage 1964-1966 washing dishes after school, Saturdays, and full-time during the summer of 1965. In today’s dollars, I earned $12.08/hour. With the money that I earned, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966. I used that car to commute to/from classes at UIC and my parents’ home in Crete. If I had earned $15/hour in today’s dollars back then, I might have worked fewer hours, studied more, gotten better grades, gotten a better ACT score, and graduated with a higher class ranking. Then again, I might have bought a loaded 1966 GTO that I might still own today.)

Based on what the IRP did in 2005 and 2013, the IRP should have by now posted on its website:
a) the names of the two other members of the IRP chairman search committee,
b) the selection process that the committee will use,
c) the qualifications that applicants must have,
d) the requirements that applicants must meet, and
e) the application filing deadline.

Based on what the IRP did in 2005 and 2013, the IRP should then post on its website:
a) the names of all the applicants who met the filing deadline,
b) the names of all those applicants the committee deemed qualified,
c) lots of information on those applicants,
d) how Illinois Republicans can provide input on those applicants to IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members,
e) the date, time, and location of the meeting in which the applicants will give their presentations to the IRP SCC,
f) how Illinois Republicans can attend that meeting,
g) a Zoom link that Illinois Republicans can use to watch the applicant’s presentations at that meeting,
h) the weighted vote that each IRP SCC member has,
i) the weighted vote that each applicant got and from each of the IRP SCC members, and
j) the name of the winning applicant.

I am very interested in learning what each the applicants has done and has promised to do to defend and advance the personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. I am very interested in learning what position each of the applicants has on direct election of IRP SCC members. It seems to me that the committee will reject applicants who want direct election.

ABC NEWS
— Trump campaign memo signals plans to reduce the national GOP platform. The memo said the new platform would reflect Trump’s political stances.. – Isabella Murray (COMMENT: My critics/opponents in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization have always ever-increasingly wanted the Republican Party to officially dump the personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in its platform. That is, they have always ever-increasingly wanted to dump conservatives. That is, they have always ever-increasingly wanted to destroy the Republican Party.)
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-campaign-memo-signals-plans-reduce-national-gop/story?id=111547663
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump’s top advisers are planning to overhaul and shorten the Republican Party’s platform so that it will be “in line” with the former president’s “vision for America’s future,” according to a memo sent to the party’s platform committee that was obtained by ABC News. The memo comes as some more socially conservative RNC members — along with some anti-abortion groups — have expressed concern that the platform this cycle might adopt Trump’s stance on reproductive rights, which would lift the call for a 20-week federal abortion ban that is part of the current platform’s language. Trump has been clear about his opposition to a federal ban and his preference for this issue to be left up to the states. This memo did not specifically mention abortion or reproductive rights but doubled down on the notion that the new platform will reflect Trump’s political stances. “For decades, Republicans have published textbook-long platforms that are scrutinized and intentionally misrepresented by our political opponents. The mainstream media uses their bully pulpit to perpetuate lies and misrepresentations, and the voters are often left believing we stand for something different than we actually do,” the memo, sent by Trump campaign managers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, says. The RNC’s 2016 platform, which was approved again in 2020 – both times with Trump at the helm of the party – is over 60 pages long. “Publishing an unnecessarily verbose treatise will provide more fuel for our opponent’s fire of misinformation and misrepresentation to voters. It is with that recognition that we will present a streamlined platform in line with President Trump’s principled and popular vision for America’s future,” the memo states. The memo was sent to Platform Committee members on Thursday. The committee begins convening in Milwaukee on the evening of July 7, and has meetings scheduled on July 8 and 9, ahead of the RNC’s convention. Draft language for a new platform has not yet been circulated to most Platform Committee members or general RNC members yet, according to several people with the process, though a number of conversations and lobbying on the issues with Trump allies have been ongoing among leaders of key advocacy groups and with some individuals. “The talk of changing the Republican party’s pro-life platform is deeply concerning for pro-life Americans across the country. There has only been one party that is the defender of life, and if Republicans back away from this fight, there will be no one to carry on this battle,” said Tim Chapman, the incoming president of former Vice President Mike Pence’s nonprofit political advocacy group. “Our expectation is that the GOP platform will continue to unequivocally call for national protections for unborn children, rooted in the 14th Amendment. Watering down the GOP platform’s stance on life would entail an abandonment of its defense of the human dignity of all people,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, said in a statement to ABC News.)

https://www.cnn.com/2024/06/29/politics/trump-campaign-gop-platform/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Top advisers to Donald Trump are plotting an overhaul of the Republican Party platform that will dramatically slash its size and refocus the GOP around the former president’s agenda for a second term. A memo from Trump campaign managers Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles dated Thursday criticized past platforms as too long and too heavily influenced by special interests and outside groups. A “clear, concise and easily digestible” platform will be easier for voters to understand and harder for political opponents to attack, they wrote. “Publishing an unnecessarily verbose treatise will provide more fuel for our opponent’s fire of misinformation and misrepresentation to voters,” the memo said. “It is with that recognition that we will present a streamlined platform in line with President Trump’s principled and popular vision for America’s future.” The memo, obtained Saturday by CNN, was first reported by The New York Times. The party’s most recent platform, crafted in 2016 and reapproved in 2020, spans 66 pages. A person familiar with the planning said the goal for the upcoming platform is a concise document that is “a couple dozen pages,” written in clearer language and likely reflecting Trump’s top priorities. That person went on to say that when platform committees convened ahead of previous conventions, their meetings were attended by lobbyists and special interest groups trying to insert specific line items for their clients into the party platform. LaCivita and Wiles wrote they want a platform that will “free our Party from the constraints of Washington jargon and the shackles of lobbyist influence.” The memo comes amid intensifying anxiety from conservative groups over the direction of the platform ahead of next month’s Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. There is especially concern among anti-abortion groups that Thursday’s memo is signaling Trump intends to remove the platform’s long-standing commitment to a federal abortion ban and an amendment to the US Constitution giving the unborn the same rights as people. “The party is fully united, and taking out the pro-life language risks dividing the party,” said one Trump ally who is deeply involved in the anti-abortion movement and is aware of the memo from LaCivita and Wiles. The existing platform also lays out the party’s opposition to same-sex marriage and new gun restrictions. It embraces changes to Medicare and Social Security for people under 55 — some of which has become fodder for Democratic messaging in recent election cycles. Trump’s campaign is especially aware of how Democrats have weaponized the GOP platform in the past and is seeking to avoid a lengthy document full of potential landmines for the former president to navigate. “The platform is an opportunity to make our vision clear, and to lay out a framework for policy making, while rejecting any special interest influence that seeks to make public policy stray from our clear and straightforward objectives,” LaCivita and Wiles wrote. But by laying down markers in advance of next month’s convention, Trump’s campaign is further asserting his dominance over a party more fully in his control. Already, Trump this year has ousted the party’s previous chair, Ronna McDaniel, and installed close allies atop the GOP — his daughter-in-law Lara Trump and North Carolina GOP leader Michael Whatley. The platform committee, meanwhile, will be led by three close allies: Randy Evans, Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg; Russell Vought, a top official in the Trump administration; and Ed Martin, president of the right-wing interest group the Phyllis Schlafly Eagles and author of the 2016 book “The Conservative Case for Trump.” That committee will meet behind closed doors ahead of the convention, which begins July 15. Unlike in previous years, its deliberations will not be broadcast by C-SPAN, a source confirmed.)
— The 14th Amendment has been used to dismantle race-based programs. Historians say there are clashing interpretations. – Nicquel Terry Ellis (COMMENT: My critics/opponents reject the 14th Amendment. They ever-increasingly want more and more and more race and gender based preference giving.)
https://www.kake.com/story/50969201/the-14th-amendment-has-been-used-to-dismantle-race-based-programs-historians-say-there-are-clashing-interpretations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Supreme Court’s decision to gut affirmative action in college admissions one year ago has opened the door for numerous legal challenges against race-based grant programs, internships and scholarships across the country. Many of those lawsuits are being filed by conservative groups who insist that it’s unconstitutional to design and operate a program exclusively for a certain racial group. They argue that the programs particularly disadvantage White and Asian Americans, by preventing them from obtaining the jobs, funding or opportunities that these programs offer to other racial groups. Some lawsuits invoke the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment which was ratified after slavery was abolished and says no state may “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” The amendment was notably cited in Justice Clarence Thomas’ concurring opinion in the landmark affirmative action ruling, who described it as a “crowning accomplishment” of Congress. Thomas argued that the 14th Amendment “ensures racial equality with no textual reference to race whatsoever.”)

In his defense, he fought brittle type 1 diabetes from childhood. He was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school.

— It Has Never Been Harder, or More Essential, to Have a Work Best Friend. – Rachel Dodes and Lauren Mechling (COMMENT: While I was an employee 1964-1997, I had few work friends because I have always been a Republican and virtually all my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats. Further, few of them shared my interests, my conservatism, my religion (Protestant), and/or my national origin (German.)  Further, while many, most, and at times virtually all of them were veterans, while I was a draft avoider. Further, virtually none of them did what I did. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree in 1970. I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997. I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997. I earned a job-related professional license in 1981. Further, virtually none of them had spouses who had good-paying jobs. Further, virtually all of them had health, financial, and/or other problems. Consequently, when my Democrat superiors took big adverse actions against, none of them came to my defense.)

Two-Thirds Don’t Reach Anyone.  The agency hired nearly 7,000 new customer-service representatives, but its internal watchdog group says it still falls short. – Ashlea Ebeling (COMMENT: Have you ever phoned IRS with a tax question? If you did during the 1974 filing season, the IRS employee who answered your call was one of my subordinates. During 1974 IRS filing season, as a 25-year-old GS-11 (currently $80,994/year) IRS Revenue Officer, I supervised all of the IRS employees, which included a rotating staff of about 90 IRS Revenue Agent trainees, in IRS’s new downtown Chicago office who answered taxpayer questions using IRS’s new CentiPhone system. Because of my job performance, the IRS manager who had given me the job and who had promoted me in 1972 and 1973 promoted me to GS-12 (currently $97,079/year). But my Democrat IRS superiors soon got rid of him because they were beyond furious that he given me the CentiPhone job and that he had promoted me instead of an IRS employee who was Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. My Democrat superior who led the successful effort to get rid of him was a veteran who was furious that I had avoided the draft.)

— The IRS Apologizes to Ken Griffin – Editorial (COMMENT: The Democrat Party runs IRS. Because of that, do not anticipate/expect that my Democrat IRS superiors will ever apologize to me for the big adverse actions that they took against me including a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) never promoting me beyond GS-12, c) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and d) encouraging GAO to force me to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They ignored/dismissed/belittled my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and my earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. They were beyond furious when GAO assigned me to audits of IRS 1986-1988.)

— A Political Base Is Only a Base. Neither party can win without expanding its appeal to swing voters and even defectors. – Karl Rove (COMMENT: RINO candidates, elected officials, and party leaders appeal to swing voters by destroying conservatives, that is, by destroying the base of the Republican Party. I should write a book about that. In Illinois, they destroyed TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition.)
