PALOS PATCH
— Activists Plan Victory Lap At Ousted Palos Trustee’s Last Meeting. After 4 years of protests, activists plan rally for ousted Palos Township Tr. Sharon Brannigan’s final board meeting on April 12. – Lorraine Swanson
(DIERSEN: When will my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes officially take a victory lap for ending my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership in 2007, my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, my GAO employment in 1997, etc.? I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.)
https://patch.com/illinois/palos/activists-plan-victory-lap-ousted-palos-trustees-last-meeting
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The southwest suburban Arab American community and their allies are taking credit for ousting embattled Palos Township Tr. Sharon Bannigan, who lost her bid for township assessor against incumbent Robert Maloney in the April 6 election. Maloney, garnered 3,909 votes to Brannigan’s 2,351, according to unofficial election results. “We screamed with joy, we were so relieved,” activist Hasam Marajda said, who led the #ByeBrannigan get-out-the-vote effort. “After four years of going to monthly township meetings, when she wouldn’t resign, we voted her out.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Republican Kirk Dillard has been approached “by prominent business and Republican leaders” to run for governor, but he told Playbook he’s not interested. Dillard wouldn’t need training wheels for the job given he was chief of staff to Gov. Jim Edgar and has legislative experience. “Currently, I have a wonderfully balanced personal and professional life,” he said. “These civic leaders came to me, not vice versa. I am not harboring a desire to run for governor.” Dillard, who is chairman of the Regional Transportation Authority’s board of directors, said he’s “laser focused” on guiding the Chicago area regional mass transit system out of the pandemic. “It’s an economic engine and an economic equalizer for our local communities and the state of Illinois.” All eyes are watching to see if Reps. Rodney Davis or Darin LaHood make a move for the governor’s office. They haven’t ruled out running, and their decisions could be based on how their districts are redrawn. Declared candidates so far: state Sen. Darren Bailey, businessman Gary Rabine, and state Sen. Paul Schimpf. Other potential candidates: former Senate Minority Leader Bill Brady, who recently said he’s considering a potential statewide run for office as secretary of state, governor, or perhaps U.S. Senate; state Sen. Jason Barickman; and attorney and Illinois National Committeeman for the Republican National Committee Richard Porter. Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s name also has been batted about but he has said that a run for governor isn’t likely. – SHIA KAPOS

AMERICAN THINKER
— Fixing Racism by Being Racist? – Brian C. Joondeph
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/fixing_racism_by_being_racist.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, one of America’s most prominent teaching hospitals, plans on offering “preferential care based on race” and “race explicit interventions” as part of its new “antiracist agenda for medicine.” Such a program uses a “reparations framework” to allocate medical resources. Reparations means that those who were never slaveholders are paying money to those who were never slaves, over injustices a century and a half ago, committed by people who may have no connection to the current reparation’s participants. In other words, using racism to combat racism. How ironic that the vision of the Mass General Brigham health system is dedication to delivering medical care that is, among other things, “equitable.” Nothing promotes equity like a racist concept of “preferential care based on race.” Princeton University, an elite institution of higher learning, comparable in prestige to the Brigham in the hospital world, offered admission to about 1500 applicants to its class of 2025, according to Powerline Blog. Only 28 percent were white Americans, compared to 68 percent who identified as “persons of color.” This is less than half of the 61 percent figure of white students enrolled in US public schools. So much for a class of students that “looks like America.”)

https://patriotpost.us/opinion/79074-robert-e-lee-a-leader-in-national-reconciliation-2021-04-12
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Civil War cost 258,000 Confederate deaths and 360,000 Union deaths. Suggestions have been made that reparations should be paid to the families of the Union soldiers who gave their lives to end slavery. . .During the Civil War, Lee’s estate overlooking Washington, DC, was confiscated by the federal government and turned into Arlington Cemetery. As was the case with many southerners, Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard had his properties in Memphis confiscated as reparations and given to black families for housing.)

BLAZE
— White House answered fake reporter’s questions for weeks before press corps exposed her to be ‘Lego’ video gamer – PAUL SACCA
(DIERSEN: Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being like Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News Ever since 2005, my critics/opponents have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. I should sue my critics/opponents.)
https://www.theblaze.com/news/white-house-fake-reporter-lego-gamer
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An online video game player was able to infiltrate the White House press corps by pretending to be a political reporter. The fake reporter was even able to submit questions to the Biden administration through the press corps, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered the imposter’s questions for weeks. An online persona posed as a reporter named “Kacey Montagu” for the Daily Mail, a British tabloid best known for celebrity gossip. There were Twitter and LinkedIn accounts dedicated to “Kacey Montagu,” plus she was named as the chief political correspondent for White House News, a fictional website. . .The person behind the imposter contacted the White House Correspondents Association about being becoming a pool reporter and inquired about applying for a day pass to cover the White House in person. “Kacey Montagu” was given access to cover COVID-19 government press briefings, but was not called upon. Montagu regularly sent in questions for the White House press corps to ask Psaki, adding that she wasn’t able to be there in person “due to social distancing regulations.” Montagu was able to hoodwink White House reporters, including from The Plain Dealer and CQ Roll Call, to ask Psaki numerous questions “about everything from COVID-19 travel bans, to coming ambassadorships, to Biden’s reaction to Microsoft being hacked.” “In at least one instance, a White House official was connected with Montagu to circle back with more information when they had it,” Politico reported. Some White House reporters researched “Kacey Montagu,” who had a deactivated LinkedIn account with a profile photo of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson eating an ice cream cone, and they became suspicious. During Thursday’s daily White House press briefing, Washington Blade White House Reporter Chris Johnson asked Psaki the question, “How involved is former President Obama and First Lady Obama in the Biden – Harris administration? Is President Biden seeking to bring back the often bipartisan portrait unveiling events at the White House?” The question was planted by Montagu. Mediaite investigated Kacey Montagu, and discovered that she “appears to be a gag persona for a former Secretary of State made of Legos.” “The Montagu website’s FAQ section describes her as ‘An American Citizen. Former Secretary of State, Mayor, Senator, President Pro Tempore and Speaker of the House,’ and her political views as ‘President Trump 2024, baby! I’m a Conservative,'” the outlet wrote on Thursday. Politico found that the person behind the “Kacey Montagu” persona was actually a Lego video gamer. “They believe Montagu’s White House moonlighting began as something to boast about in the online global gaming platform called ROBLOX, where users jokingly call themselves ‘Legos,'” according to Politico. “Within that platform is a role-playing group called nUSA, where people from across the world engage in a mock U.S. government exercise. At one point, Montagu had adopted the role of Secretary of State but resigned from that job after — as they recalled — ‘the [nUSA] President went to war with some U.K. and I thought it was a pretty bad idea!'” The prankster explained her motivation for the fake White House reporter profiles, “I created them as some fun but also to ensure that people know what is going on — they should be able to know what POTUS and V.P. is doing and I think the account following shows people are interested in that.” “I love journalism, and I think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” the hoaxer told the outlet. The White House declined to comment on the situation.)

They would assign me to work for my coworkers and subordinates who had far less work experience, education, and/or professional certifications that I had. They would give me performance expectations and performance appraisals that would be even more unfair. That they would always rank me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance. They could do the aforesaid because GAO was not unionized. GAO did not unionize until 2007. They would not have forced me to retire if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

— Same old Joe: Rebuffing staff who smoked pot fits Biden’s MO. The White House press secretary acknowledged Friday that marijuana use has led to five staffers losing their jobs. – NATALIE FERTIG and MONA ZHANG
(DIERSEN: Of course, sooner or later, pot pushers will get rid of Biden if he does not legalize pot.)
https://www.politico.com/news/2021/03/19/same-old-joe-rebuffing-staff-who-smoked-pot-fits-bidens-mo-477283
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite a shift in public opinion toward legalizing marijuana over the past 30 years, the president’s more conservative approach to weed policy is well-known on Capitol Hill. When the Daily Beast reported late Thursday that “dozens” of young White House staffers had been suspended, asked to resign or placed in a remote work program after admitting to prior marijuana use, pro-cannabis lawmakers were dismayed Friday but hardly shocked. “It is another very vivid example of the clash between outmoded past policies, and where America is, and where America is going,” Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Capitol Hill’s unofficial weed czar, said in an interview. “It’s not, probably, surprising.” Blumenauer is already putting together a letter with other lawmakers “seeking clarification” from the Biden administration on the dismissals. Many Republican and Democratic lawmakers, including Vice President Kamala Harris, have shifted their positions on cannabis legalization in recent years. But Biden — who, as a senator, shepherded the 1994 crime bill that disproportionately hit communities of color and set mandatory minimum sentences for marijuana possession — has never truly warmed to the idea. As recently as last year, Biden’s staff rejected marijuana legalization as part of the Democratic Party policy platform. It was a step backwards from 2016, when the party made history by endorsing a “pathway” to legalization. “They did not support descheduling and legalization,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), a co-chair of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus who worked with the Biden campaign on the Democratic party platform last summer. She’s requesting a meeting with the administration to discuss cannabis policy, including the latest uproar about personnel. In an interview, she added that the White House’s recent actions don’t surprise her. “What this shows is the impact of those laws.” Instead of endorsing full legalization, Biden’s campaign proposed a patchwork of changes to federal drug law that would legalize, decriminalize and continue to prohibit cannabis in a variety of ways that experts say will be difficult to implement. “His approach is very piecemeal,” said John Hudak, an expert on cannabis policy and executive powers at the Brookings Institution. “It’s hard to see how that plays out.” The White House’s decision to dismiss or penalize employees for marijuana demonstrates the gap between the Biden administration and the majority of his party, who increasingly see decriminalization or outright legalization as a major criminal justice reform issue. White House press secretary Jen Psaki downplayed the Daily Beast report in a pair of tweets Friday, while saying the security screenings wouldn’t “automatically” disqualify a job candidate who had used marijuana. “The bottom line is this: of the hundreds of people hired, only five people who had started working at the White House are no longer employed as a result of this policy,” she added. Nearly all of Biden’s competitors in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary issued full-throated endorsements of federal marijuana legalization. And two years ago, angling for the White House herself, Harris, then a senator from California, joked about smoking pot. “I have … and I did inhale,” she told the hosts of The Breakfast Club about smoking in college. “It was a long time ago … I think it gives a lot of people joy and we need more joy.” On the debate stage, Biden’s primary opponents took him to task for his reluctance to embrace marijuana legalization. Criminal justice reform advocates blame the harsh drug laws championed by Biden and other lawmakers in the 1990s for locking people up on overly punitive marijuana offenses. But Biden planted himself, suggested that marijuana was a gateway drug, generating criticism that led him to walk back that statement. He also later said he did not think people should be locked up for marijuana and wanted to see marijuana records expunged — a departure from the senator who criticized Republican President George H.W. Bush’s anti-drug plan for not going far enough. “We have to join together to ensure that drug dealers are punished swiftly, surely and severely … we have to hold every drug user accountable,” Biden said at the time. Now, a third of Americans live in a state where marijuana is legal and a majority support full legalization, including 83 percent of Democrats. Congress is trending that way too: The House passed a bill to legalize marijuana in December, and the Senate plans to soon follow suit. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer himself is drafting a new legalization bill and has previously promised that if Democrats led the chamber, legalization would be a priority. Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Schumer have sweeping approaches to cannabis reform, while Biden’s strategy, Hudak says, is ”public policy with a scalpel rather than hatchet.” On the campaign trail, Biden touted his support for decriminalizing cannabis and moving marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule II. Marijuana is classified as a Schedule I substance, the most restrictive category alongside heroin and LSD. But his proposal suggested a lack of familiarity with federal drug laws. Attorneys, state marijuana regulators and cannabis advocates expressed confusion about his support for decriminalization and rescheduling marijuana. Cocaine and methamphetamine are Schedule II substances, and still very much criminalized. It would be difficult, though not impossible, to achieve. As the party’s nominee, Biden had new opportunities to embrace a more progressive stance on legalization, but instead dug in his heels. His attempt to bring in the progressive wing of the party through the “unity” task force with Bernie Sanders elicited compromises on policy areas like climate change, immigration and economic policy — but not on marijuana. The only concession Sanders appointees got on weed policy was to remove a budget rider preventing Washington D.C. from regulating marijuana sales. Even some of Biden’s appointees failed to move him on the issue. As head of the Democratic Party, Biden’s stance has had ripple effects. The party rejected an amendment to support legalization as an official policy plank, instead adopting a platform backing decriminalization and expungement that mirrored Biden’s stance on the issue. Harris also changed her rhetoric once she accepted the Democratic nomination as Biden’s No. 2. The lawmaker who in 2019 sponsored comprehensive legalization in the Senate suddenly shifted to touting cannabis decriminalization rather than legalization. But Biden might join his fellow Democrats in time, Brookings’ Hudak said. “We shouldn’t conflate a president who … is not a tremendous cannabis reformer, with a president who has not changed his views over time,” he said. “Biden is not where a lot of cannabis reformers would like him to be. But he’s not the Joe Biden of 1988 or 1994.”)

(DIERSEN: Have you changed careers? In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I had to suffer a $20,361/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. My critics opponents shouted that was a) proof that IRS had overpaid me, b) proof that I had changed careers, and c) proof that the experience that I had gained by working for IRS almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year, was worthless. In fact, much of what I did for IRS as a Revenue Officer was similar to what I would do for GAO as an Analyst including interviewing; gathering, summarizing, and analyzing data; writing reports; and making recommendations.)

— Millions of workers without job are going uncounted in the unemployment rate.
(DIERSEN: In early 1998, when I was 49 years old, I gave up seeking a job that would be appropriate for someone with my education (master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance), work experience (almost 18 years working for GAO, the last 13 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $102,188-$132,845/year and almost 9 years working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years at GS-12 Step-1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year), professional certifications (accounting, internal auditing, fraud examination, government financial management, financial services auditing, and forensic accounting), and professional license (CPA). I learned from prospective employers, and from other sources, that my Democrat GAO superiors were sabotaging my job search. In September of 1997, they had succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previously, they had given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. Previously, my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. Previously, my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business, accounting, and finance courses that I deducted a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken my me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction.)

— REMAP, NOT TRUMP, MAY OUST KINZINGER – Shia Kapos
(DIERSEN: Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents and Independent plants, and RINOs promote RINO elected officials and RINO party leaders who destroy the Republican Party.)
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2021/03/15/remap-not-trump-may-oust-kinzinger-executive-orders-challenged-why-foxx-felt-triggered-492108
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s congressional seat could be eliminated when Illinois conducts its remap, according to the Cook Report’s David Wasserman. Taking out the current 16th Congressional District makes “geographic sense,” Wasserman said in his subscription-only report. He also tweeted how the new map might look amid the state’s expected one-seat loss. Democrats who control the remap because they also control the state House, Senate and governor’s mansion, are likely to redraw congressional lines to cushion neighboring Reps. Lauren Underwood and Cheri Bustos, who had tight races in their GOP-heavy districts last year. Democrats controlling the remap may also try to eliminate one of the five downstate GOP seats to account for the state’s loss. The 16th District stretches from Indiana up to the border with Wisconsin and touches the fast-growing Chicago exurbs and some downstate districts. “More rural/GOP parts of it could go to Rep. Darin LaHood’s 18th CD and Rep. Mary Miller’s 15th CD, while its Rockford suburbs and the liberal university town of DeKalb could go to Democratic seats,” writes Wasserman. Kinzinger has already made himself vulnerable by voting to impeach former President Donald Trump. Some Republicans are circling to defeat him in the primary, which Democrats see as an advantage. Catalina Lauf, who ran unsuccessfully in the 14th Congressional District last year, has even traveled to Mar-a-Lago resort to meet with Trump, who is on a campaign to defeat Republicans who voted to impeach him. “It’s too bad, because [Kinzinger is] the Republican we’d keep,” a Democratic insider told Wasserman. “But we can’t control their primaries.” RELATED: Republican state Rep. Tim Butler of Springfield has been appointed to serve as a GOP spokesman for the House Redistricting Committee, which will redraw the state’s Senate and House seats as well as congressional seats. Last week, we listed the Democrats who will lead Redistricting committees for the House and Senate, and we scooped the list of where the public redistricting hearings will be held.)

https://mashable.com/article/why-we-dont-delete-facebook-account/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s really rough seeing people share articles and other media that are, quite literally, fake news,” Kuks said. “Yes, this happens on every social media site in existence, but I saw it the most on Facebook. That being said, I’m seeing a lot more posts being flagged stating whether the information that was shared is accurate or not. Do I fully trust that? No, I’ll continue to do my own research. But it’s a start.” For a lot of users, it isn’t that they don’t want to delete their Facebook — it’s that Facebook has become so intertwined with the way they live online that they can’t really escape it. To leave Facebook would be to shift the way they interact with the internet. That’s not an accident, of course. Whether we want it to be or not, Facebook is now a part of our internet DNA. In my search to find out why people who just don’t use their Facebook accounts hold onto them anyway, I discovered there are plenty of reasons inactive or under-active users keep their profiles around — from just-in-case scenarios of remembering important events, to holding onto the thread that keeps you connected to your family.)

— ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’ Illinois Counties Prep For Massive Changes To Courts And Jails – Patrick Smith
https://www.wbez.org/stories/where-do-we-go-from-here-illinois-counties-prep-for-massive-changes-to-courts-and-jails/db074b5b-9622-4386-b5df-9211d9981e8a
(FROM THE ARTICLE: James Zay had been listening for an-hour-and-half, an exasperated smile flashing intermittently across his face, before he raised his hand to speak. Zay, a DuPage County board member, was participating in a special board meeting where, one-by-one, county officials laid out the millions of extra costs they were anticipating in the coming years because of sweeping criminal justice reforms recently signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker. “I am just sitting here astounded,” Zay said after he was called on. “I mean, this is going to have a major effect on county government and guess what, other aspects of county government are going to suffer because of this, because we don’t have the money.” The new law requires more training for officers, gives arrestees three free phone calls and makes it easier for police departments to fire bad cops. But the changes that will have the biggest impact on county budgets and court systems are the mandate that all law enforcement officers be equipped with body cameras, and the unprecedented abolition of cash bail for defendants awaiting trial starting in 2023. Zay’s fellow board member Donald Puchalski was equally worried. “Where do we go from here?” Puchalski asked. . .In DuPage, the state’s largest county outside of Cook, leaders’ early estimates are that they’re going to need dozens more prosecutors and public defenders, they’ll need to open up new courtrooms to handle pre-trial detention hearings and will need more probation officers to support the expected crush of defendants released from jail while awaiting trial. Meanwhile at the DuPage county jail, Sheriff James Mendrick estimates the number of detainees held pre-trial will drop by about a third once bail is abolished. However, he is not predicting any cost savings. That’s because the same number of people will come through and have to be processed, they just won’t be staying as long. All told, DuPage officials are predicting an additional $65 million in costs over the next five years because of the new criminal justice law. Other counties have not yet started estimating costs and savings, but many officials are expecting a big impact on their budgets. That has some county leaders worried, at a time when budgets have already been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. “This is an unfunded mandate on every county in the state,” said DuPage State’s Attorney Bob Berlin. . .In DuPage, court leaders believe the impact will go well beyond budgeting. Bond funds are meant to ensure people show up for their court dates, but the money ends up being funneled into a number of different pots. Much of it goes into a county’s general fund, it’s also used to pay victim restitution and private attorneys. County leaders said the end of cash bail will result in a higher demand for public defenders, because pre-trial detention hearings will be more robust, and there may be fewer private attorneys willing to take on clients without the assurance that they can get first crack at the bond money defendants were forced to pay to win their freedom. DuPage Public Defender Jeff York said the new law will have a “profound” effect on his office, and said historically it will be the most important change since the public defender was created. ‘Does that result in a more fair system?’ State’s Attorney Bob Berlin said he is looking at changes to their training and protocols for prosecutors on how to ask a judge to deny release to defendants. He’s expecting a big increase in the number of people locked up without the possibility of release pre-trial, and an increase in the use of electronic monitoring. Berlin said he and other officials are pressing state lawmakers to pass so-called “trailer bills” to modify the language of the bail legislation and make it easier for judges to keep pre-trial defendants in jail. “We’ve accepted that we’re not going to have cash bail. But our goal, many of us are seeking just to give judges more discretion,” Berlin said. Lawmakers have said they are open to modifying language, but not willing to make any substantial changes to the legislation. With the end of cash bail, Berlin is expecting a lot more cases to go to trial because fewer defendants will feel pressured to plead guilty to get out of jail. “That means there’s a burden on victims, witnesses, police and prosecutors,” Berlin said. “Does that result in a more fair system? You know, I’m not convinced that that’s the case … I believe that most people who plead guilty plead guilty because they are guilty. I know that some believe that in certain cases, people will plead guilty just to get out of jail. I think that’s a very small percentage of people.” Berlin is asking county leaders to budget for 27 additional prosecutors because of the new law. That’s partially because of more intense pre-trial detention hearings, and the anticipation of more trials. But the biggest factor, according to Berlin, is the new requirement that all police officers be outfitted with body cameras. That means every arrest could have hours of video evidence that prosecutors will be obligated to review. Defense attorneys, including the public defender’s offices will have the same obligations. “The amount of material that we’re going to have to go through and analyze and talk about with our clients. It’s just, it’s significant,” York said. In DuPage, Berlin and Mendrick believe the elimination of cash bail will mean more missed court dates and more repeat offenders committing crimes while awaiting trial.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Republican Catalina Lauf has hired GOP political consultant Alex Bruesewitz to help run her congressional campaign challenging Rep. Adam Kinzinger in IL-16. Bruesewitz, who heads the conservative X Strategies consulting group in Washington, D.C. (and Palm Beach, Fla.), spoke at a Stop the Steal rally the day before the attack on the Capitol. He has criticized the violence, saying it allows Donald Trump’s critics to paint him as a threat. Bruesewitz is now supporting Trump’s efforts to target Republicans who have opposed him, and it’s no surprise that one of the first to be identified in that vein is Kinzinger. The congressman was one of 10 House Republicans who voted with Democrats to impeach Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Kinzinger has formed a “Country First” political action committee and movement focused on steering the Republican Party away from Trumpism. Lauf is all in for Trump. She ran unsuccessfully for Congress in the 14th District in 2020 and spoke at the GOP national convention last summer. – SHIA KAPOS

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/fighting-cancel-culture-drew-holden
(FROM THE ARTICLE: We’ve heard a lot about “cancel culture” of late. From debates about what it is and if it really exists to a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) dedicated to it, politicos of all stripes have weighed in. Just last week, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, called for congressional hearings about its threat. The definition of cancel culture is tough to nail down but, fundamentally, it’s about punishing someone for something they’ve said or done in the past that is deemed unacceptable. This judgement is often a result of changing cultural norms and mores by a subgroup of people who are often unaccountable to the broader public. The punishments vary but usually involve a loss of money or status – ensuring someone is fired or de-platformed, blackballing a company or product, invalidating awards or honors.)

The current American ruling class is the laughingstock of the planet. This coterie includes among its number the Democrat party, the media/entertainment complex, Wall Street, tech oligarchs, corporatists and the professoriate. This gaggle of buffoons are perhaps the most inept, egocentric and oblivious among all ruling classes in democratic and free nations around the globe. This descent into absurdity began many decades ago but accelerated precipitously over the past five years. The primary catalyst: the campaign and election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.)

The goal of the programs — used by the New York City public school system and other school districts — is to separate students and staff by racial groups in order to help address discrimination and “white privilege.” But the practice of separating schools into racial groups is discriminatory, a determination obtained by the Post found. The findings — reached during the waning days of former President Trump’s time in office in early January — were in response to a complaint about a Chicago-area school district’s “racial equity” training programs and lesson plans.)

(DIERSEN: White privilege and white supremacy are the Democrats’ new dog whistle as people have become immune to being called a racist. Joe Biden tosses those terms out just about daily now. They are meant to divide us, and I suspect most informed people, regardless of color, have figured this out as well. I certainly don’t expect any of my friends and acquaintance of color to be any more or less satisfied of their heritage than I am, as we are all equal in this country and the eyes of our maker. A person should be proud of their birthright. To force employees into mandatory training to instruct Caucasians to be less white is absurd … and racist. And who determined racism only comes in white? It is uncertain if the program was part of author Robin DeAngelo’s ongoing attempts to paint all white people as racist. She’s white and made a career writing books on the matter, one a best-seller, and teaches classes on the subject. Only after the backlash did she start denying she was involved with Coke, but Linkedin Learning used parts of her material. She’s obviously been doing well with leftists, college kids, and spineless woke executives.)

FEDERALIST
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS, UNACCEPTABLE, RACIST: Naperville Teachers Shamed For Color Of Their Skin In Taxpayer-Sponsored ‘Antiracist’ Training. The Countywide Equity Institute featured 10 speakers alleging ‘institutional racism,’ as well as ‘implicit bias’ and ‘white privilege.’ Illinois has just mandated this kind of instruction in all public schools. – Gabe Kaminsky
https://thefederalist.com/2021/03/05/illinois-teachers-shamed-for-color-of-their-skin-in-taxpayer-sponsored-antiracist-training/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Educators at a public high school in Illinois were astonished to learn when they showed up for work one day that everything from the color of their skin to snow shoveling indicates “systemic racism.” On Feb. 26, Naperville 203 Community Unit School District hosted a systemic racism training for faculty and staff, bringing in “antiracist” coach Dena Simmons for a keynote speech. The Countywide Equity Institute featured 10 speakers lecturing on “equity and inclusion” practices for “marginalized and/or underrepresented” students, as well as implicit bias and microaggressions. A whistleblower who reached out to The Federalist, a teacher at Naperville Central High School, claims Simmons told attendees that “our education is based on a foundation of whiteness” and that Americans “are spiritually murdering” students. Simmons also reportedly said that if you are not an “antiracist” you are a racist, even if you believe “you are treating people with respect.” Simmons has delivered two TEDx talks on institutional racism. In one speech to educators that has more than 230,000 views on YouTube, the Yale University graduate said “white supremacy” is the outcome in all schools that do not embrace “racial justice” and “antiracism” training for students. In an article titled “How to Be an Antiracist Educator” published in Oct. 2019, Simmons praises The New York Times’ “1619 Project” as a “comprehensive opportunity to learn and discuss history and race with colleagues and students.” The 1619 Project claimed America is systemically racist and that all of modern society and injustices are directly linked to slavery. It has been the target of much criticism by scholars for inaccuracy. The whistleblower said Simmons’ lecture was “all over the place” and “hard to follow” content-wise. Simmons reportedly said “snow removal” indicates systemic racism, presumably referencing a viral Feb. 3 column published by the Los Angeles Times in which the author condemned her Republican neighbor for plowing her driveway. “At one point she was talking even about how snow removal is affected by systemic racism. She totally lost me on that one. I even texted that to my [partner],” said the whistleblower. “It’s almost time for an amazing day of learning in @Naperville203! So excited for our lineup, discussions, reflections, and ACTIONS that will make us better together. #BeTheSpark @brightmorningtm @DenaSimmons @SaraKAhmed @pgorski @chrisemdin,” the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Naperville, Jayne Willard, who organized the Feb. 26 “antiracist training,” tweeted that morning. The Federalist contacted the district for a transcript or video of the training. An employee at the district office claimed Simmons did not permit any recording or redistribution of her discussion that day. “The Naperville Community School District 203 has given a platform to the toxic and divisive ideology of critical race theory. Ms. Dena Simmons is one of the many prophets of this cult-like ideology that looks at children by the color of their skin, not the content of their character,” Asra Q. Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal reporter investigating critical race theory in education, told The Federalist. “As parents, we need to ask the bottom line questions. How much was Ms. Simmons paid? Was there a competitive bidding process to get speakers on the topic?” Simmons is the founder of LiberatED, a group “focused on developing school-based resources at the intersection of social and emotional learning (SEL), racial justice, and healing.” She posts a reported speaking fee of $10,000 to $20,000 to essentially discuss the redistribution of wealth and social prestige by race. A teacher at Naperville Central sent The Federalist several PowerPoint slides from the virtual training hosted by speaker Valda Valbrun, who presented on the topic “Leading for Equity: Efficacy and Action in Schools.” The PowerPoint image below obtained by The Federalist alludes to a broad conspiratorial network of interconnected systems of “structural and institutional racism.” Below are additional pictures that teachers in the Valbrun training took, one of which depicts a pyramid graph that differentiates between examples of “covert” and “overt” white supremacy. Among the overt examples, the graph claims the phrase “Make America Great Again” is covert white supremacist language, nearly equivalent in context to the N-word and the Ku Klux Klan. Also, it claims denying the existence of “white privilege” makes you a racist. So does the “celebration of Columbus Day,” as depicted in the right-hand corner. Another slide, depicted under the white supremacy graph, deceptively equates “equal access” with “a vision of society in which the distribution of resources and power is equitable and all members are physically and psychologically safe and secure.” Once more, equality of outcome is represented by the “antiracist” educators as synonymous with equality of opportunity. Valbrun is the CEO of Valbrum Consulting Group, an organization that provides training and leadership development for schools and districts. In 2019, Valbrun presented at The Harvey B. Gantt Museum, Equity and Innovation Teacher Institute on equity and systemic racism in education. Valbrum’s lecture at Naperville overwhelmingly used identity politics to explain all “disparities” in society, according to sources. “Let’s look at the children as individuals,” a teacher said. “They are saying that if you are white you are racist and have white privilege. Even if you say you are not racist, you are told you are.” On March 2, school district coordinator Sue Jim Striedl sent an email to all attendees at the Feb. 26 Valbrun training to provide a link to the Intercultural Development Inventory website. IDI identifies itself as “the premier cross-cultural competence that is used by thousands of individuals and organizations to build intercultural competence to achieve international and domestic diversity and inclusion goals and outcomes.” Striedl forwarded a Google Drive link from Valbrun that contains documents she used in her lecture. One document called the “Leading For Racial Equity” glossary defines the terms “white privilege,” “white fragility,” “white culture,” “whiteness,” and “systemic racism,” among others. It also says that “reverse racism” does not exist, claiming white people cannot be discriminated against. Another document is a “Continuum on Becoming an Anti-Racist, Multicultural Institution,” a six-step guide to becoming an “antiracist” based on the notion that everyone is implicitly bigoted. The third document included below is called the “School Culture Equity Rubric” and outlines various scenarios of “racism,” such as if a minority student is not greeted upon entering a classroom. Additionally, suspensions, detentions, and all “zero-tolerance discipline” policies are said to be racist. In a tweet prior to the 2020 presidential election in November, now-Vice President Kamala Harris called for “equity,” saying “equitable treatment means we all end up in the same place.” Schools and companies are now ramping up partnerships with speakers espousing dangerous ideas, such as the elimination of meritocracy and the idea of judging people as racist or non-racist based on their biology. In this intersectionality hierarchy, a white man is inherently racist simply because he is a white man; a transgender black pansexual person with the pronouns it/they remains oppressed because of his sectarian status in society’s impermeable “hegemony.” In February, a whistleblower said Coca-Cola was hosting “antiracist” training on LinkedIn for employees, which was subsequently removed from the website. The training videos instructed employees to “try to be less white.” Brigham Young University, as reported by The Daily Wire, is developing a “race-conscious” curriculum. The BYU task force said the school should “establish a dedicated, visible space on campus for underrepresented students and those who serve this population.” In other words, segregation. “We’re facing a national crisis in America today with a multimillion-dollar industry that I call ‘Woke Inc.,’ infiltrating our schools with hired guns, weaponizing our children, and indoctrinating them with toxic, divisive ideas that segregate, shame, and denigrate,” Nomani said. “As a parent, it breaks my heart. We have to stand up with moral courage and challenge and expose this nightmare.” According to teachers, Naperville Central had a “building institute” training a week prior on Feb. 22 where district “learning coaches” lectured on implicit bias and microaggressions. The topic of discussion was also equity and racism in education—and America at large. The whistleblower says that he believes the next session is scheduled for April 6. The “antiracist” training at the high school comes on the heels of Illinois formally approving “Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards.” According to the new rules, teachers are required to “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives,” as well as “assess how their biases…affect…how they access tools to mitigate their own behavior (racism, sexism, homophobia, unearned privilege, Eurocentrism, etc).” “In Illinois, the semi-official civics website tied to the implementation of the state’s civics law, illinoiscivics.org , has been heavily promoting critical race theory, the culturally responsive teaching philosophy that grows out of critical race theory, and the white fragility-style training sessions connected to culturally responsive teaching. I say ‘semi-official’ because the illinoiscivics.org website is funded and run by a private entity, the McCormick Foundation,” Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, told The Federalist. The new rules in Illinois include an article on “white fragility” and form the basis for training sessions—like that at Naperville—for teachers to “move past their whiteness.” Educators are required to admit that there is systemic racism or “that there are systems in our society that create and reinforce inequities, thereby creating oppressive conditions.” “We need to oppose ‘antiracism’ training because the training itself is more like racism than its opposite. This training attributes guilt and innocence, insight and blindness, to individuals because of their race. This training, and the critical race theory that inspires it, is fundamentally at odds with the classically liberal principles that form the foundation of our constitutional system,” Kurtz added. He noted that Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed the nation he leads is beset with systemic racism, a critical race theory concept, and one of his first acts as president was to reinstate critical race theory trainings for federal employees and contractors. “I’ve had enough of this,” the whistleblower said. “Somebody needed to say something. I was raised with the idea that you try to see people as human beings and individuals. Instead of trying to create a society that works together, a society that has the values that our country was founded on, all systemic racism is doing is drawing attention to people’s races and differences. Instead of a society that works together, this is totally the opposite.” Assistant Superintendent Jayne Willard did not return several calls from The Federalist requesting for comment, nor did Assistant Principal Angela Ginnan from Naperville Central High School. Valbrun Consulting Group did not return any calls. An individual who handles inquiries for Dena Simmons responded to an email preliminarily but did not answer a follow-up with questions.)
