Mike Bost called Trump’s endorsement “a tremendous honor” and vowed to help Trump win back the White House.

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— 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.)

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.)

— Chicago falls shy of national milestone for women attorneys – Kaitlin Washburn (COMMENT: The Democrats who ran the Post Office in 1966, IRS in 1971, and GAO in 1980 hired me because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. They ever-increasingly lowered standards to hire, retain, and promote more Democrats who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. All my coworkers who my Democrat superiors in the federal government promoted over me were Democrats DEI hires who had a) less work experience than I had, b) less education than I had, c) no professional certifications or fewer than I had, and/or d) no professional license. Virtually all of them were females and/or minorities. It is called patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)

To earn money to buy a new car that I would use to commute to/from my parents’ home in Crete and classes at UIC, I washed dishes for the minimum wage four evenings a week and Saturdays in the basement of the SS Kresge’s in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School 1964-1966 and 40 hours a week during the summer of 1965 in between.)

— A history of Taylor Swift’s political involvement — and how it could resurface in 2024. – Rachel Schilke
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/2832163/history-taylor-swift-political-involvement-resurface-2024/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, Swift endorsed her first Democratic candidates in October: Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for the House of Representatives from her home state of Tennessee. She also knocked now-Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who defeated Bredesen in the general election. Cooper won reelection that year. “In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. “I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love,” she added. 2019 The Lover star vocally supported the Equality Act, and in 2019, she began Pride Month by writing an open letter to then-Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) encouraging him to vote in favor of the bill. “While there’s no information yet as to when the Equality Act will go before the Senate for a vote, we do know this: Politicians need votes to stay in office,” Swift said in a release posted to X, called Twitter at the time. “Votes come from the people. Pressure from massive amounts of people is a major way to push politicians towards positive change.” She also included the letter she wrote to Alexander in her post, pointing to his support of a resolution honoring the ratification of the 19th Amendment. “This was a positive step 100 years ago and I hope we can all continue to put aside partisan affiliations when it comes to matters of basic human rights,” Swift wrote, referring to the amendment. She also created a petition on change.org to urge the Senate to pass the Equality Act.)

CREATORS SYNDICATE
— Now That Trump Has Wrapped up GOP Nomination and Leads Biden in Every Swing State, Here Are the 11 Things Desperate Democrats Are Willing to Do to Win – Wayne Allyn Root
https://www.creators.com/read/wayne-allyn-root/02/24/now-that-trump-has-wrapped-up-gop-nomination-and-leads-biden-in-every-swing-state-here-are-the-11-things-desperate-democrats-are-willing-to-do-to-win
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. We could see more indictments of Trump from now through the election. Maybe even a big one out of left field close to the election — a so-called October surprise. 2. They will try to convict Trump before the November election — and if possible, lead him out of the courtroom in handcuffs, straight to prison. 3. They will keep trying to disqualify Trump — at least until they get a final ruling out of the Supreme Court. 4. If all else fails, I fear the deep state will try to assassinate Trump. They really are that evil. 5. And if all that fails, Biden will drop out of the race for health reasons, and Democrats will choose Michelle Obama as their 2024 presidential nominee. I’m no Johnny-come-lately to this prediction. I made it in print a year ago — on Jan. 22, 2023. The only issue here is, does Michelle want it? If not, they’ll either replace Biden with California Gov. Gavin Newsom or stick with Biden but double down on the other 10 planks in this column to rig the election against Trump. 6. In conjunction with all the above, Democrats will try their best to start World War III as both a WMD (weapon of mass distraction) and to stir up patriotism for the incumbent Democrat president. 7. Democrats could cancel the election with the country paralyzed by waves of deadly terror attacks (with terrorists that Biden waved in with his open borders) or an EMP attack that cripples our water, sewage, electric grid and infrastructure. 8. China will invade Taiwan this year. China needs to move before the election — while the brain-dead man with dementia and diapers, who is bribed and blackmailed by China, is still in control. 9. The COVID pandemic was just a trial run. Another pandemic could strike America in the run-up to the election — but this one will be far deadlier. This will result in panic, hysteria and a 100% mail-in ballot election (the perfect recipe for voter fraud). 10. Black Lives Matter was just a trial run. Expect mass anarchy in the run-up to the election, but much larger than the BLM demonstrations in the summer of 2020 — this time involving not just disgruntled black rioters and looters but millions of illegal aliens combined with pro-Palestinian, pro-Hamas, anti-Israel protestors. 11. And most importantly, combine everything above with the same game plan from 2020: Mail-in ballots combined with no voter ID. Ballot harvesting (a crime everywhere else in the world but America). Unsupervised ballot drop boxes. No signature match on ballots. Billions of dollars spent on “election integrity” by globalist billionaires — with the real purpose to rig the turnout in favor of Democrats. Social media rigging the election by censoring the news feed to allow only fake positive news about Democrats and only negative stories about Trump. And of course, the simplest scam of all: Keep counting votes for days after election night until Democrats win. Count on much of that, or all of that, happening over the next nine months.)

They ever-increasingly lowered standards to hire, retain, and promote more Democrats who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. All my coworkers who my Democrat superiors in the federal government promoted over me were Democrats DEI hires who had a) less work experience than I had, b) less education than I had, c) no professional certifications or fewer than I had, and/or d) no professional license. Virtually all of them were females and/or minorities. It is called patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

— Whether a racial minority or majority at their school, white teachers struggle with race relations – AMBY SHARITA FORREST (COMMENT: During the almost 3 years that I worked for the Post Office, almost 9 years for GAO, and almost 18 years for GAO, I worked for, worked with, and supervised many Blacks.)
https://news.illinois.edu/view/6367/920500785
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a study of white teachers’ sense of belongingness at their schools, education professor Jennifer L. Nelson found that these teachers were often ill-equipped for discussions about racial issues with Black colleagues and students because they had little prior experience thinking about or confronting race in their family, educational and previous work environments. White workers’ emotions about race and reactions to racial differences in the workplace are triggered by identity threat-induced culture shock, researchers suggest in a new study. White teachers who worked at a school where the faculty was majority Black felt shocked, rejected, uncomfortable and anxious when racial discussions arose and their racial or professional identities were challenged, the researchers found. When triggered by feeling different – regardless of whether they were a racial minority or majority in their workplace –white teachers responded by practicing social avoidance, shunning intergroup relations and ducking conversations about race. “Most of the white teachers in our sample hailed from racially segregated social worlds – attending predominantly white high schools and universities” that left them unprepared to handle race relations in their workplace, said first author Jennifer L. Nelson, a professor of education policy, organization and leadership at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, who co-wrote the study with Tiffany D. Johnson, a business professor at Georgia Institute of Technology.)

— Illinois GOP Ignores Will of the People, Pushes Anti-Trump Agenda – Mark Vargas
https://www.newsmax.com/markvargas/illinois-gop-anti-trump/2024/01/31/id/1151718/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So back in Illinois: What’s the current position of the state Republican Party? According to the embattled state party chairman Don Tracy, the party will remain “neutral” during this primary season. In other words, they want to wait it out. It’s too early and there’s not enough data to make any predictions just yet. But again, this should come as no surprise. During the 2020 presidential primary, it was reported that owners in Tracy’s family-owned business — where he is an owner — donated $6,193 to Biden’s campaign. In 2018, owners made only a $250 donation to Trump. But it was only a year ago when Tracy wanted to reevaluate the state party’s so-called “neutrality” policy after a Trump-endorsed conservative grassroots Republican defeated the state party’s preferred establishment-backed candidate for governor in the 2022 Illinois Republican primary by 43 points. Tracy then blamed the Trump-endorsed candidate for all of the 2022 statewide midterm election losses — a move that angered the powerful and influential grassroots base of the party. And last spring key Illinois GOP party leaders, including national committeeman Richard Porter — a close friend and adviser to Tracy and Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel — endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the presidential primary. During Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair this past August, Porter was interviewed by the Chicago Tribune where on-record, he repeated a line often used by the Democrats and said that Trump was running for president simply to avoid going to jail. After both the Chicago Tribune and Illinois Review reported on his on-the-record comments, Porter was in panic mode. Realizing that his inner monologue was now public record, he offered a long, meandering follow-up statement to try and clarify his statement. But the damage was already done. But none of this is accidental and multiple sources in Illinois confirm that Illinois Republican Party leaders are playing the “neutral” card because they are holding out hope that one of Trump’s 91 criminal charges — 44 federal and 47 state — will stick and he will be jailed before the Republican National Convention in August, leaving Haley or DeSantis as the Republican nominee for president who will face Biden in November. State party leaders will emphatically and publicly deny that this is the strategy, but this is the truth. And it’s the only reason that explains why they are remaining selectively neutral this presidential primary season — for fear of angering DeSantis or Haley by coming out so quickly in support of Trump. But the pattern is clear. Last March, the Illinois Republican Party hosted a fundraiser that featured former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, who served as attorney general under Trump. Barr frequently attacks Trump in media interviews and says the GOP presidential front-runner is destroying the Republican Party. And who served on the host committee? Tracy and Porter. And when former President Trump visited southern Illinois in June 2022, none of the state party leaders, including Tracy and Porter bothered to show up. That’s right: The 45th president of the United States of America and the leader of the national party shows up in your backyard, and the state Republican party leaders decide to skip the party. It’s no wonder Democrats control every lever in the state — the establishment, anti-Trump Republicans within the state party allow it.)

SLASH GEAR
— Ford 10-Speed Transmission: The Most Common Problems – PRARTHANA GOPAL (COMMENT: I am one of the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against Ford over this transmission. I represent Mustang owners in Illinois. SEE: https://dockets.justia.com/docket/illinois/ilndce/1:2023cv04130/435016 The lawsuit has since been transferred to Massachusetts.)
https://www.slashgear.com/1490143/ford-10-speed-transmission-common-problems/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2017, Ford debuted the 10R80 transmission, which it had developed in collaboration with General Motors. The new transmission was first introduced in Ford F-150 trucks, but it soon became a mainstay in other models like the Mustang, Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, and Ranger, among others. The 10R80 was designed to provide more power and fuel efficiency, allowing drivers to experience a more responsive and nimble handling experience. That said, problems soon began to surface with the 10-speed automatic transmission. Owners of Ford passenger vehicles experienced various issues, ranging from jerky driving to delayed gear shifting and more. Over time, consistent problems with the transmission system led to multiple consumer complaints and even lawsuits against Ford. Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission has made an appearance in several Ford vehicles over the years, but it has also become the subject of multiple lawsuits. Plaintiffs have repeatedly alleged that the 10R80 transmission is defective. Some have also claimed that the auto manufacturer has known about this problem since 2018. A lawsuit, filed with the Massachusetts State Court on April 18, 2023, stated: “A common design and/or manufacturing defect in Ford’s 10R80 transmissions is a potentially life-threatening safety issue, and Ford has refused to recall or replace the defective Transmissions.” . . . Ford, on the other hand, refuted several of these allegations, asserting that the plaintiffs didn’t seek prompt servicing for their vehicles. Ford also pointed out that the complainants continued to use their cars despite these issues surfacing — a fact that could negate the severity of the claims. . .One of the most common issues that people have experienced with Ford vehicles that used the 10R80 transmission was the “sluggish” pace of gear changes. Some drivers also allegedly experienced violent and sudden shifts from one gear to the other.) 

January 30, 2024

Democrat and RINO leaders continue to flood America with their illegals. Their illegals will want/need/demand massive assistance for years, if not decades, if not forever. Anticipate/expect that Democrat and RINO leaders will not evict their illegals from their shelters unless/until a) you pay with your tax dollars to give them housing, food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc. and/or b) you take them into your home and provide them with the aforesaid.

Anticipate/expect that Pritzker will ever-increasingly give more tax dollars to countries, townships, municipalities, and school districts that take in his illegals. But in the short run, will Pritzker symbolically a) house some illegals in his Chicago home and provide them with food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc. and b) encourage/force other rich Chicagoans to do the same?

QUESTION: Which employees will Democrat and RINO leaders encourage/force employers to replace with illegals? ANSWER: Anticipate/expect it will be their employees who are conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, have ancestors who have been in America for a long time, etc.

QUESTION: Which homeowners will Democrat and RINO leaders encourage/force to house their illegals and provide them with food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc.? ANSWER: Anticipate/expect it will be homeowners who own bigger homes, who have empty bedrooms, who have higher income, who have higher net worth, who have children, who have pets, who are older, who are female, are who are LGBTQ, etc.

QUESTION: But what about Democrats who are in need? ANSWER: Anticipate/expect that Democrat and RINO leaders will use your tax dollars to pay illegals to help Democrats who are in need, for example, help them take care of their children.

DUPAGE POLICY INSTITUTE
— Glen Ellyn Village President Senak: ‘That $11 million is for us to have migrants come to Glen Ellyn and locate here and settle here and remain here’ (COMMENT: Democrat and RINO leaders continue flood America with illegals. Their illegals will want/need/demand massive assistance for years, if not decades, if not forever. Anticipate/expect that Democrat and RINO leaders will not evict their illegals from their shelters until a) you pay with your tax dollars to give their illegals housing, food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc. and/or b) you take their illegals into your home and provide them with the aforesaid. Anticipate/expect that Pritzker will ever-increasingly give more tax dollars to countries, to townships, to municipalities, and to school districts that take in his illegals. But in the short run, will Pritzker a) house illegals in his Chicago home and provide them with food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc. and b) encourage/force other rich Chicagoans to do the same?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Leave it alone,” Firchau said.” I can’t afford myself. Alright. I love this town. It’s a beautiful town. I’ve been blessed to be a carpenter in this town. I’ve worked under the most beautiful houses I’ve ever encountered. I’ve done it for forty years, and I’d like to see the high class homes and quality of our neighborhoods stay the same. This is our country, not theirs.” Another audience member questioned the restrictions or requirements for accessing the grant money and also emphasized the importance of monitoring incidents, public resources, and transportation in the settlement process. Over 34,000 illegal immigrants have landed in the state since mid-2022. Last fall Illinois allocated $42.5 million in grant monies for municipalities to house illegal immigrants. As of last fall Lake County, Elgin, Oak Park, Urbana and Chicago had received grant funds from the state to assist with housing and other needs. Overall the state has allocated $500 million for the care of illegal immigrants. “We know this unprecedented humanitarian crisis is going to be critical to discussions on budget and other important issues this session,” House Speaker Chris Welch said, according to Capitol News Illinois. However, the revelation from Senak is the first time the money has been linked to permanent resettlement efforts. The grant funding revelation comes a week after Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson requested help from 21 suburban mayors who are part of the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus. Burr Ridge’s Gary Grasso was one of 21 suburban mayors who Johnson requested help from. “He’s asking us all for support, calling out the federal government,” Grasso said.)

DAILY WIRE
— Disneyland Posts Woke ‘Wheel Of Privilege’ In Employee Kitchen, Removes It After Daily Wire Inquiry. ‘Things like this make people feel unwelcome, destroying the magic,” employee tells The Daily Wire. – Ashe Schow•
https://www.dailywire.com/news/exclusive-disneyland-posts-woke-wheel-of-privilege-in-employee-kitchen-removes-it-after-daily-wire-inquiry
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Posters featuring a “wheel of power/privilege” were hung in employee spaces in Disneyland, instructing employees that being white, “cisgender male,” and even speaking English means you have “unearned” privilege that your “marginalized” coworkers do not, according to images obtained by The Daily Wire. The wheel featured for all employees to see has the word “power” in the middle, and is sectioned like a dart board, with certain traits fanning outward that are labeled “marginalized.” For example, being white, a “cisgender male,” owning property, and speaking English are all considered privileged, while being dark-skinned, transgender, homeless, and not speaking English are considered marginalized. In between the inner and outer circle – which would be considered not completely marginalized but not totally privileged either – are “cisgender women,” gay men, people with a high school education, and who learned English. Included with the wheel is a definition of “privilege,” stating that it is “unearned access or advantage granted to specific groups of people because of their membership in a social group.” “Privilege can be based off a variety of different social identities such as race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, ability status, sexuality, age, education level, and more,” it continues. “Within the US, members of social groups that hold privileges (white, male, wealthy, able-bodied, etc.) have historically held dominance and power over targeted groups.” The poster also asks, “why should we accept that we have privileges?” It provides the following answer: “By accepting that we have privileges, we can see that not everyone sees the world from our perspective and that we have privileges in our life that have hindered our awareness of the world.”)

Other reasons included the store manager treated me like he wanted to get rid of me. He disapproved of my being a college graduate, draft avoider, former postal employee, Protestant, German American, Crete resident, and my ancestors having been in America since 1844. He refused to let me start working in the store until I passed a 2-week probationary period in the Hammond Indiana Firestone Store. He never would have hired me. Firestone’s District Office hired me. I asked to be assigned to its Chicago Heights Store because I lived in Crete and I did not know that its manager disapproved of so many of my demographics.)

The 28 shelters in the city are at capacity and Johnson says he will not open anymore.

— Yes, employers can set a mandatory retirement age. What you need to know – Jeanne Sahadi (COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government. If you are a federal employee who is Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran, they force you to retire as soon as you become eligible unless you made Senior Executive Service, currently $191,900/year. I became eligible to take early retirement in 1993 when I was 45. They succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. I would have been eligible for regular retirement 6 years later, in 2003 when I was 55.)

AXIOS CHICAGO
— Census data show 13.8% of homes in Illinois were owned by single women in 2021, compared to 10.1% by single men. – Brianna Crane, Sami Sparber (COMMENT: I bought a new town home in University Park ( https://www.redfin.com/IL/University-Park/774-Sunset-Ct-60484/unit-5/home/23344604 ) when I was 24 years old and single in 1972. The down payment came from what I had earned a) working for IRS in Harvey for the previous 9 months and in Chicago for 6 months before that and b) working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for the previous 18 months and full-time for 7 months before that. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $54,728/year in June of 1971 and $66,942/year in September of 1972. I had bought a new 1972 Corvette in 1971. I was paying for tuition and books to take graduate evening business courses at Loyola.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Mayor Brandon Johnson’s administration is changing its strategy on managing the migrant crisis. – Shia Kapos
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Behind closed doors: The mayor met privately with small groups of aldermen Friday — keeping groups small avoids the pesky open meeting rules — to brief them on how the city will no longer set up new shelter space because the costs are too high. That means it won’t build industrial tents for migrants, either. Here’s a copy of the briefing report obtained by Playbook. New strategy: The city will work with churches and private individuals to find beds for asylum seekers. And as individuals leave any of the current shelters, beds will open for the next wave of migrants. And while the cold snap continues, the Harold Washington Library will serve as a warming center for some asylum seekers as well as for the already unhoused. The goal: Get asylum seekers into regular housing as soon as possible or send them back to the landing area, which is a shelter of sorts until beds open up in the current shelters. Getting folks out of shelters and into housing will be easier now that the state has staffed up case managers in nearly all of the city’s 28 shelters, the aldermen were told.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Health and mental effects of cannabis use are described here by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton on first day of legal marijuana. Illinois Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton is likely proud as well. In 2020, instead of using Illinois’ first day of legalization to warn of marijuana’s undisputed dangers, she celebrated the event as if it were the end of prohibition of apple pie. Her picture appeared on countless national stories from CNN to FOX, all smiles. “Illinois lieutenant governor beats long lines to become one of the first to legally buy weed in the state,” said the CNN headline.)

ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— Legislators must act to address migrant crisis – State Sen. Andrew Chesney, R-Freeport
https://www.rrstar.com/story/opinion/columns/2024/01/20/your-turn-legislators-must-act-to-address-migrant-crisis/72268455007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the last 18 months, Gov. JB Pritzker has issued consecutive 30-day disaster proclamations for the State of Illinois as it relates to the migrant crisis and the hordes of non-citizens making their way to Illinois from the U.S. southern border. These orders grant him massive power to bypass the Legislature, a co-equal branch of government, and move and spend budget dollars how he sees fit. Indeed, Governor Pritzker and I do not agree on much, but we agree that the flood of migrants into Illinois is a crisis. When these people arrive, they need shelter, food, and often healthcare. Children must be enrolled in schools, and because they are primarily non-English-speaking, they require additional resources to help them learn. These things cost money and resources that most communities cannot spare. Every tax dollar that is diverted to fund the needs of migrants is a dollar that is siphoned away from Illinois citizens who are hungry, Illinois veterans who need help, Illinois citizens living with disabilities, and lower-income Illinois citizens who rely on their state government for essential services, like food on their table and a warm house in the winter. Governor Pritzker and the Mayor of Chicago are pointing fingers at border state governors and begging President Biden for financial assistance when they should be taking some responsibility for a crisis that is mainly of their own making. Illinois has rolled out the welcome mat to migrants and illegal immigrants. When you loudly proclaim that Illinois welcomes migrants and illegal immigrants regardless of their status, you shouldn’t be too surprised when they show up. Illinois became a de-facto Sanctuary State when majority party Democrats passed Senate Bill 31 in the 100th General Assembly (2017-2018). This law, named the “Trust Act,” prohibits Illinois law enforcement personnel from coordinating with federal immigration officials to enforce immigration laws. Then, in the 101st General Assembly (2019-2020), Democrats enacted laws that provide free health insurance, first for senior illegal immigrants, then for illegal immigrants aged 55-64, and ultimately for all illegal immigrants aged 52+. During this time, they also extended college tuition grants to illegal immigrants and tweaked court system procedures so that an individual’s immigration status could not be used against them. In the 102nd General Assembly (2021-2022), Medicaid coverage for illegal immigrants was expanded, and they became eligible for certain tax credits and state utility assistance programs. Both migrants and illegal immigrants were also provided with access to public defenders for immigration cases. In the current 103rd General Assembly, Democrats created a process for them to obtain driver’s licenses and housing assistance and provided a pathway for some migrants to become sworn police officers. Is it any wonder that Illinois is a premier destination state for the undocumented? I recently sent a survey to residents of the 45th District. It was sent with no regard to political affiliation. Republicans, Democrats, and Independents all received it. On the issue of support or non-support of free healthcare for illegal immigrants, as of January 1, 2024, a resounding 81.5% of all respondents said they were opposed to the State of Illinois providing free healthcare to those in this country illegally. It is time to unwind the policies that have made this state a destination for the undocumented, beginning with a full repeal of the Trust Act. Illegal immigration is just that — illegal. Law enforcement should be able to work with federal officials to enforce our immigration laws. Secondly, I recommend the elimination of free healthcare for migrants and illegal immigrants. Over 80% of the survey respondents in my district want this, so it is legislation I will be proud to carry. And lastly, we need to roll back the host of other policies mentioned above that have made Illinois a de-facto Sanctuary State and a destination for migrants and illegal immigrants. In my opinion, this is the most important issue facing lawmakers during the 2024 session, and I am willing to work with any legislator who wants to unwind bad policies and place our state back on a better path.)

Virtually all of them were female and/or minority. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2024/01/20/college-essays-the-affirmative-action-workaround-n606296
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In short, students can still write essays about how race has factored into their lives but it has to be specific and not based on checking a box. Within days the Washington Post had published a story about how colleges were already planning to help educate prospective students about how to get around the new limitations on considering race directly in admissions. . .This of course assumed that students weren’t already well aware that the essays were the best chance they had to make race work for them. The NY Times had already published an account from a college professor who had spent his grad school years making side money by helping students with applications. He said the students already knew how the game worked. . .Students applying for top colleges aren’t dumb. And now that the rules have changed, they are still doing their best to work the system. . .This is exactly the sort of thing that everyone predicted would happen. College essays are now a back door for putting race front and center before admissions officers. The schools haven’t given up on race-conscious admissions, they are just doing their best to find a legal workaround that will allow them to generate the same outcome. Put another way, the same incentives and disincentives are still there depending on your race you just have to be a little more explicit about it to game the system these days.)

— University of Wisconsin Law School Forcing Students To Endure Racist DEI Reeducation. “This ‘DEI training’ is a form of indoctrination and demeans law students based on their race.” (COMMENT: My critics/opponents talk and act like they agree with the University of Wisconsin Law School. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents a) are/were rich, b) bought them cars, c) paid their colleges expenses, d) got them jobs, e) etc.)
https://legalinsurrection.com/2024/01/univ-wisconsin-law-school-forcing-students-to-endure-racist-dei-reeducation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In preparation for the session, law students are asked to study a description of “racist” behaviors, including the false claim that non-discrimination is “racist” and a collection of other assertions about “whites” and “people of color” that actually are racist. It would be one thing if the law school proposed an academic debate about such matters. But no one believes for one moment that’s what this session is about. This “DEI training” is a form of indoctrination and demeans law students based on their race. WILL strongly condemns this meeting’s proposed subject matter and demands that any racially discriminatory instruction be removed. By pushing racist ideology on law students, the University is defying federal law, creating a racially hostile environment, and harming individual student dignity. . .The attachments assert a racist view of the world and propagate harmful racial stereotypes. The materials assert the following claims: Only white people can be racist. Advocating for a “colorblind” society is racist and “negates” the “experiences of people of color.” It is racist to attack affirmative action. All white people experience “privilege based on your white skin color. You benefit from this system of oppression and advantage no matter what your intentions are.” White people have a “fear of people of color and what would happen if they gained control.” White people all are infected with “whiteness,” “white guilt,” “denial,” “fear,” and “privilege.” Ridding white people of “racist conditioning” “will never happen.” “There are no exceptional white people” such that all are tainted by skin color. “All white people are the “beneficiaries of racism and white privilege.” White people should never talk about their “own story of hardship” because it “diminishes the experiences of people of color.” All white people “attempt to excuse, defend or cover up racist actions of other white people.”)

POWER LINE
— THE DEEP MEANING OF DEI – SCOTT JOHNSON
https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2024/01/the-deep-meaning-of-dei.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College presidents, if they are not members of the Democratic Party, invariably come into office pledging to enlarge the diversity regime, which further cements the party–academic alliance. College faculties are overwhelmingly Democratic and progressive in their affiliations. College campuses are now a “base” of the Democratic Party. Academic administrators, of whom there are now many, are typically hired today to advance one or another aspect of the diversity regime. One will find few conservatives in faculty or administrative posts because they oppose the diversity regime, and so cannot be hired. It is hard to escape the conclusion that the DEI movement, in large part thanks to its alliance with the Democratic Party, has locked up control over America’s leading universities. The enterprise is especially influential not only because DEI is the official doctrine of the university, but also because it leans on powerful external allies in the Democratic Party. For that reason, it was shocking that a few outside critics should have been able to topple Ms. Gay while dishing out an embarrassing lesson to Harvard’s establishment. . .Ours is not the first country in which universities have fallen under control of political parties. The history of these kinds of relationships is far from benign. Nazi leaders in Germany targeted universities for control and used them to implement party policies and spread their malignant ideology. Many of these universities were among the finest in the world before the Nazis took over. Something similar happened in the Soviet Union, though there the universities were captured by Marxism–Leninism and the Communist Party. In neither country were speakers allowed to appear on university campuses to promote ideas in opposition to party dogmas. Authorities under those regimes did not appoint university heads on the basis of scholarly credentials but rather because of their loyalty to the party and its ideology. Everyone knows how those enterprises ended. Is it a good thing that American universities are controlled by the Democratic Party, and circulate its ideological dogmas? Obviously not—and for that reason universities and the diversity agenda will inevitably confront a political reckoning.)

— Build the wall? Here’s why immigrants will still come to US. – John Skey, Bradenton (COMMENT: What jobs have you taken that your critics/opponents would never have stooped to take? I did yard work 1962-1964, delivered newspapers 1962-1966, washed dishes 1964-1966, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, delivered mail 1966-1969, worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971, pumped more gasoline 1971-1972, collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents a) are/were rich, b) bought them cars, c) paid their colleges expenses, d) got them jobs, e) etc.)
https://www.tampabay.com/opinion/2024/01/19/build-wall-heres-why-immigrants-will-still-come-us-letters/
(FROM THE LETTER: You can build a wall, you can talk tough about immigrants “poisoning” our blood, but until you start going after American businesses, and their owners, for knowingly hiring millions of workers without documentation, not much will change. I’ve know many immigrants, documented and not, and every single one of them was here to work, and every single one of them found work. Illegal immigration will drop dramatically if E-Verify is required for every employer in the country, no wall needed. The flip side of this is we will then have a massive shortage of labor, as most Americans do not want to do the farm, hotel, restaurant and roofing/construction jobs that these immigrants do so well. Rarely do I hear politicians talk about the root causes of illegal immigration: terrible conditions in the immigrants’ country of origin combined with millions of available jobs here in the United States, happily given to them by American business owners. Any serious discussion of immigration must address these issues, with significant fines and/or jail time for hiring illegally, while simultaneously developing and expanding a robust guest worker visa program to accommodate, legally, the immigrants that will do the jobs Americans simply will not do.)

My ancestors on my father’s side were farmers who immigrated from what is now Germany to Chicago in 1844. They worked in a brick factory there until they had saved enough money to homestead a farm in southeast Crete Township in 1854. They sold that farm in 1864 and bought 10 acres on the north side of downtown Crete. My grandfather had 1286 Wood Street built on that land in 1926. I lived in that house 1954-1972. My father lived in that house until he died in 1969. My mother lived in that house until she died in 2016. My brother lived in that house until he died in 2022. I sold that house in 2022.

(COMMENT: In June 1905, the Tribune recalled that some 70 years earlier, diplomacy had been a thriving industry on Lake Michigan’s shore, far removed from its accustomed focal point in the nation’s capital. “In the days of Chicago’s youth, treaties were negotiated here. Representatives of the United States and of the Potawatomi and other tribes held solemn councils here and entered into agreements by which the Indians gave up much and got little.” Collectively, those treaties stripped the Indians of their tribal lands. They proceeded apace with the westward movement of European farmers and ranchers. Indians not only lost their hunting grounds, they became foreigners in someone else’s country. Until 1924, Indians weren’t American citizens.)
— Racial equity activist must pay at least $38,000 after judge dismisses her lawsuit alleging harm from Awake Illinois leader. – Alex Hulvalchick and Pam DeFiglio (COMMENT: Have you supervised a racial equity activist? I did during all of the last 8 years that I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office. He was a younger Black CPA who always led the office’s many Black events. My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates did everything that they could to turn him against me. They stressed to him that I was conservative, Republican, Protestant, and 100% German American. They stressed to him that my ancestors had been in America since 1844 but that none of them joined the Union Army. They stressed to him that I lived in Crete 1948-1972 and that I had lived in Wheaton since 1978. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted at him that I gave him unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals. They shouted at him that I sabotaged his career advancement. They stressed to him that I supported the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. But they stressed the most to him that was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination and age discrimination. In September of 1997, when I was 49 years old, they succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” that expired at the end of that month. I was not eligible for regular retirement for another 6 years and they made it clear that if I did not take their “offer,” my next 6 years would be a living hell. They gave my younger Black activist subordinate my job and my preferred corner office. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

In Illinois, Asian and Pacific Islander children have the highest index score at 837, followed by white children at 740. Black children received an index score of 341. . .The report shows that poverty levels improved between 2007–2011 and 2017–2021, but too many families still struggle to make ends meet. More than half of Black (58%), American Indian or Alaska Native (57%) and Latino (53%) kids live below the federal poverty level.)

— We Are in an Abusive Relationship with Our Government – J.B. Shurk
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2024/01/we_are_in_an_abusive_relationship_with_our_government.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: California is now covering the costs of genital-mutilating surgeries for illegal aliens. Leftism’s slippery slope invariably leads to depraved absurdity. Consider how Governor (receding) Hairdo and the Pyrite State’s other communist saboteurs have greased the shifting ground under Californians’ feet: (1) There is no illegal immigration crisis. (2) There may be a crisis, but California taxpayers won’t be paying for it. (3) Taxpayers may have to foot the bill for the illegal immigration crisis, but California will do nothing to incentivize illegal immigration. (4) After further review, these aliens aren’t “illegal,” but rather “undocumented.” (5) Health care is a human right. (6) California must provide “undocumented” aliens healthcare. (7) Mutilating the genitals to make them look like the opposite sex is health care. (8) California taxpayers must pay for “undocumented” aliens’ genital surgery. (9) Californians who object to paying for undocumented aliens’ genital surgery may be guilty of “hate” crimes and will be prosecuted. Why punish the people who illegally enter the United States when you can punish the people who do not want to subsidize immigration crimes while canceling their votes with the votes of those here illegally?)
— Claudine Gay debacle is the end result of a 1968 Xerox memo – Michael Bertolone (COMMENT: Since the 1960s, employers have been under ever-increasingly pressure to hire, to retain, and to promote young minorities and young females, that is, to discriminate against older Whites and older men.).
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/01/claudine_gay_debacle_is_the_end_result_of_a_1968_xerox_memo.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The genesis of the policy that led to her hiring can be found in a 1968 memo that then-Xerox CEO Joseph C. Wilson wrote in which he directed his hiring managers to hire underqualified and outright unqualified minorities in the name of “diversity.” Using Claudine Gay’s example as a case study, we can now clearly see the dismal fruit of this well-intentioned but sadly naive policy. Xerox CEO Wilson implemented the policy in reaction to the riots sweeping the U.S. in 1968, particularly after Martin Luther King’s assassination. This reaction foreshadows corporate America’s reaction to the killing of George Floyd by the ramping up of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs. Wilson’s directive also included a warning that read, “The full and unqualified cooperation of all Xerox managers is expected in reaching our minority hiring goals.” He could have added “or else” to that statement. Similar hiring directives have been issued at universities and corporations over the last several decades. The only difference is that the decision-makers have gotten clever and usually don’t memorialize these policies in writing. Word of mouth is the preferred method to avoid the blowback of conservatives and the general public. But now, leftists have deluded themselves into thinking that there will be no repercussions for their out-of-touch machinations.)

A huge majority defines this as an “invasion.” A huge majority also says this is a national security crisis. Here is what most Americans can see and understand: Open borders are leading to massive increases in spending: welfare, food stamps, national debt — the bankruptcy of America. And of course, a massive decline in our quality of living.)

My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates did everything that they could to turn him against me. They stressed to him that I was conservative, Republican, Protestant, and 100% German American. They stressed to him that my ancestors had been in America since 1844 but that none of them joined the Union Army. They stressed to him that I lived in Crete 1948-1972 and that I had lived in Wheaton since 1978. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted at him that I gave him unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals. They shouted at him that I sabotaged his career advancement. They stressed to him that I supported the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. But they stressed the most to him that was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination and age discrimination. In September of 1997, when I was 49 years old, they succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” that expired at the end of that month. I was not eligible for regular retirement for another 6 years and they made it clear that if I did not take their “offer,” my next 6 years would be a living hell. They gave my younger Black activist subordinate my job and my preferred corner office. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

HISTORY
— ABRAHAM LINCOLN’S EMBRACE OF FOREIGN-BORN FIGHTERS More than a quarter million immigrants took up arms for the United States. – HAROLD HOLZER (COMMENT: Democrat leaders have declared a Second Civil War against Republicans. Illegals are soldiers in the Democrat Army. All my ancestors were farmers who immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s from what is now Germany. My harshest critics/opponents stress that none of them enlisted in the Union Army. In my defense, I own a Civil War sword that I inherited from a relative who did enlist in the Union Army. I have it in my closet by my front door for my self-defense.)
https://www.historynet.com/immigrants-union-army-civil-war/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the earliest days of Union enlistment in New York City, anyone willing to volunteer was welcome at recruitment offices—including the foreign-born. Language barriers proved no obstacle, particularly among Germans. After all, German support had helped Abraham Lincoln win the presidency in 1860. After the fall of Fort Sumter and the call for 75,000 militia to suppress the rebellion, Lincoln wisely concluded that a war to save the Union must not be an exclusively native-born undertaking. So he launched a concerted effort to lure marquee commanders from various ethnic backgrounds, regardless of their politics (though he did resist abolitionist Frederick Douglass’ early pleas for the enlistment of free Blacks). One of Lincoln’s first such acts was to order his secretary of war to appoint “Col. Julian Allen, a Polish gentleman, naturalized,” who proposed “raising a Regiment of our citizens of his nationality, to serve in our Army.” After some initial resistance from the War Department, Allen got his commission. Army regulations at the time explicitly stated: “No volunteer will be mustered into the service who is unable to speak the English language.” That rule would simply be ignored. From the outset, the restriction hardly stemmed the early enthusiasm of the foreign-born to don the U.S. Army uniform, even if the uniforms themselves reflected more the ethnic background of the recruits than the cohesion of the supposedly united states. That spring, German-born New York Herald correspondent Henry Villard seemed “surprised”—but clearly proud—to observe freshly minted “infantry dressed in the genuine Bavarian uniform….Prussian uniforms, too; the ‘Garibaldi Guards’ in the legendary red blouses and bersaglieri [Italian infantry] hats,” as well as “‘Zouaves’ and ‘Turcoes’ [North African infantrymen], clothed as in the French army, with some fanciful American features grafted upon them.” Before long, Lincoln granted a request by Carl Schurz, the recently named U.S. minister to Spain, to abandon his post in Madrid and raise a regiment in New York. Although his initial recruitment efforts fell short, Schurz won a military commission anyway, and served in the Army of the Potomac. In 1863, however, he earned damning criticism when his men fled from a Confederate assault at Chancellorsville. Most officers subject to such castigation would have faced demotion or dismissal. But Schurz still exerted enormous influence—over the German-born community as well as Lincoln—for his tireless work in the 1860 campaign. A gifted orator, he managed to convince Lincoln to continue backing him even as he leveled injudicious criticism (privately, at least) on his commander-in-chief. Then there was the case of Franz Sigel, a 36-year-old German-born general who notched an even more dubious record in the West. From the outset of the war, however, Sigel proved a magnet for German recruitment. “I Fights Mit Sigel” became a rallying cry among German-speaking soldiers. Each time Lincoln sought to downgrade Sigel, the outcry from Germans proved overpowering. In 1864, when Lincoln briefly faced a third-party reelection challenge, many of those expressing support for the insurgency cited the president’s alleged injustices against Sigel. IRISH LEADERS, MIXED RESULTS If German Americans contributed the largest foreign-born contingent in the Federal army, Irish Americans proved a close second. Some 150,000 Irishmen took up arms for the Union.)

TIME
— The Civil War Was Won by Immigrant Soldiers – DON H. DOYLE
https://time.com/3940428/civil-war-immigrant-soldiers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why did they fight? What were they fighting for? Recruitment posters in the New York Historical Society provide hints at the answers.
One poster reads: Patrioti Italiani! Honvedek! Amis de la liberté! Deutsche Freiheits Kaempfer! (Italian patriots! Hungarians! Friends of liberty! German freedom fighters!) Then, in English, it urges “250 able-bodied men . . . Patriots of all nations” to fight for their “adopted country.” One immigrant mother gave testimony in 1863 to an antislavery convention as to why her 17-year-old son was fighting for the Union. “I am from Germany where my brothers all fought against the Government and tried to make us free, but were unsuccessful,” she said. “We foreigners know the preciousness of that great, noble gift a great deal better than you, because you never were in slavery, but we are born in it.” Following the failed Revolution of 1848, thousands of young Germans fled to America. They took up arms in what they saw as yet another battle in the revolutionary struggle against the forces of aristocracy and slavery. “It isn’t a war where two powers fight to win a piece of land,” one German enlistee wrote to his family. “Instead it’s about freedom or slavery, and you can well imagine, dear mother, I support the cause of freedom with all my might.” In another letter written to his family in Europe, a German soldier gave a pithy explanation of the war: “I don’t have the space or the time to explain all about the cause, only this much: the states that are rebelling are slave states, and they want slavery to be expanded, but the northern states are against this, and so it is civil war!”)

The discussion, however, quickly turned to his predecessors’ pledge to house arriving asylum seekers – a promise he has vowed to continue into next year.

Most recently, Republican lawmakers secured a concession from Democrats to speed up a $20 billion cut, previously agreed to last June to avoid a US default. Rather than cut $10 billion this year and another $10 billion next year from the IRS, all $20 billion would be rescinded in 2024 under an agreement reached Sunday on 2024 top-line budget numbers. The deal is a key first step to avoid a looming, partial government shutdown, but plenty of work remains before lawmakers reach a broader deal on a final 2024 spending bill. Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidates Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy have suggested they would gut the IRS, along with some other federal agencies. Last week during a CNN town hall, DeSantis went as far as to say that he would eliminate the IRS and replace the nation’s tax code with one flat tax, which would require all taxpayers to pay the same federal tax rate.)

— I am 75. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted age discrimination big time. Most commonly, age-discriminators do that to curry favor with younger people, and especially with younger people who are liberal/moderate, non-Republican, non-American, minority, female, LGBTQ, poor, veteran, unmarried, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Most commonly, age-discriminators discriminate the most against older people who are conservative, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who are ever-increasingly taking more/bigger adverse actions against me as I get older.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now the governor, who has designs on the White House either in 2024 or maybe 2028 at the latest, looks weak and feckless. His gun control measure was supposed to be a big pillar of his presidential campaign. “Look, I passed a gun ban in Illinois. Elect me president, and I’ll pass one through Congress too.” Pritzker spent millions to lure the Democratic National Convention to Chicago this year. He wants to appear as a strong and effective state leader ready for the big time in Washington. Appearing feckless and impotent in the face of this gun ban no doubt causes him anger and frustration in private.)

— Physical therapist shares tips to avoid injury while shoveling snow. May cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. – Wafaa Ezzat (COMMENT: I have an appointment with a physical therapist today. Yesterday, my orthopedic doctor ordered me to not shovel snow this winter because of my injured right shoulder/arm. If you have any suggestions on who I could hire to shovel snow at my Wheaton home this winter, please phone me at 630-653-0462 or email me at diersen@aol.com ASAP. Many newspapers are thrown on my driveway every morning that I then skim to help me put GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together. They are: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Daily Herald, and New York Times (7 Days a week); Wall Street Journal (Mondays-Saturdays); USA TODAY (Mondays-Fridays); Naperville Sun (Wednesdays and Fridays); and Suburban Life (Thursdays). Two years ago today, ice on my driveway caused me to slip and fall when I retrieved those newspapers. That caused me to suffer a “brain bleed” and injuries that I will never recover from including loss of taste and smell. SEE: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/14480-brain-bleed-hemorrhage-intracranial-hemorrhage )

https://www.kwqc.com/2024/01/10/physical-therapist-shares-tips-avoid-injury-while-shoveling-snow/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: As winter weather blankets our area, it’s important for property owners and tenants to ensure their sidewalks are clear of snow and ice. While area cities work to clear streets, alleys, and parking lots of snow and ice, it is the responsibility of property owners and tenants to clear their sidewalks and driveways of snow and ice, which can be a backbreaking chore. According to the CDC slips on ice and snow account for a million injuries each year. “If you’re somebody with a heart condition or an exercise intolerance that you can shuffle because that can the cardiac can definitely be involved there. From a physical therapy standpoint, though, we see shoulder injuries, knee injuries and then falls are a huge thing too. Once you get that first layer of snow shoveled off it tends to be really slippery underneath there,” said Jordan Gillund, Manager of Outpatient Physical Therapy, Genesis Health System. Gillund says that snow shoveling is pretty similar to a gym workout, so it’s important to prepare for it. This includes dressing properly, stretching and warming up your joints, pacing yourself, drinking plenty of water and taking breaks whenever you can. Despite the rush to clear snow before the plow comes, he says it’s important to recognize the toll it takes on the body. “A lot of times, we have people who are bending from the waist bending with their back and not from their knees when lifting, especially when it’s heavy snow, like it is today. We always tell people to keep your back straight, then with your knees. Smaller loads are better, always push the snow versus lifting it when you’re able to.” Gillund also recommends starting to shovel snow shortly after it falls when it’s lighter and fluffier, and make sure to have your phone with you and to always listen to your body. “If you’re somebody with a heart condition or an exercise intolerance that you can’t shovel because that can the cardiac can definitely be involved there. from a physical therapy standpoint, though, we see shoulder injuries, knee injuries and then falls are a huge thing too. once you get that first layer of snow shoveled off it tends to be really slippery underneath there.”)

I am furious that during the 1800s, some German immigrants tried to get America to speak German. My ancestors were slow to drop German.

https://wgntv.com/news/wgn-investigates/migrant-enrollment-in-cps-rises-a-look-at-what-it-means-for-the-students/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the last year, thousands of newly arrived migrant students have enrolled at Chicago Public Schools. Students and school administrators have had to adjust to the sudden changes adding bilingual teachers and resources to help students with their new surroundings. Barbara Quijada is an 8th grader at Ogden International’s Jenner Academy who arrived from Venezuela in July. That school has enrolled an estimated 80 new migrant students this year. Barbara is considered a role model for many of her newly arrived classmates. Not only is she thriving academically but was recently selected to do the school announcements in Spanish. William Calderon is Barbara’s teacher. “She wanted to be part of a community,” he said. “She had that special thing that when you see someone you know.” The 13-year-old spent at least a month sleeping outside the Near North police station while attending school. The family of one of her classmates decided to welcome her into their home until her parents find permanent shelter. It’s estimated that 20 percent of the nearly 30,000 migrant arrivals are children and hundreds are enrolled in Chicago Public Schools across the city. WGN Investigates found that as of September – the English Learners program at CPS increased by 11 percent – up from just over 72,000 in the 2022-23 school year to nearly 80,000 this year.

(COMMENT: How has your high school faired since you graduated? I graduated from Crete-Monee in 1966. Even though I was not viewed as being “college material,” my outstanding teachers enabled me get an ACT score of 24 and graduate in the upper 20% of my class. But sadly, since then, relatively few of my 1966 classmates earned bachelor’s degrees and even fewer earned master’s degrees, professional certifications, and professional licenses like I did.)

They did that because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. They did that so that they could give my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate which is exactly what they did. They did that to send a strong message to potential job applicants who share my demographics that GAO does not want you.)

https://www.realclearmarkets.com/articles/2024/01/09/the_economics_of_modern_affirmative_action_beneficiaries_1003596.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Critiques of Claudine Gay noted her thin publication record that enabled her to gain tenure at Stanford and then Harvard. They only lightly touch on her ability to gain admittance to Harvard’s undergraduate program: Her wealthy black immigrant parents and enrollment at an elite prep school (Exeter). This background had become increasingly commonplace at Ivy League universities, especially Harvard. U.S. affirmative action policies did not make distinctions within the black population. As a result, descendants of twentieth-century black immigrants were the major beneficiaries of affirmative action at the most elite universities. Highly selective colleges increasingly have admitted the sons and daughters of voluntary black immigrants to the U.S., rather than descendants of enslaved blacks forcibly brought to America’s shores; and a disproportionate share, like Gay, attended elite private prep schools. As a result, black students from immigrant families comprise over 40 percent of the Ivy League black student population even though they are only 10 percent of the U.S. black population.)

Her story is featured in a new WORLD channel documentary called “The Cost of Inheritance: An America ReFramed Special.” Lieb Dula, founder of Reparations 4 Slavery and the film’s director Yoruba Richen join GBH News’ Liz Neisloss.
