— New Illinois law allows homeowners to remove racist language from home deeds – Will Jones
(COMMENT: Politics is nasty. Politics is vicious. When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete. She had inherited it from my father’s mother’s sister. The deed contains an offensive restrictive covenant. If I were to seek a political office again, including Republican Precinct Committeeman for DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization would a) stress to the voters in my precinct that I own half interest in land that has an offensive restrictive covenant and b) demand that my brother and I have that covenant removed. They would use the aforesaid to paint me, paint my brother, paint my parents, paint my grandparents, paint my great grandparents, and paint the rest of my ancestors as being racists and even worse things.)

(DIERSEN: Bob Dole walked in Wheaton’s 1996 Independence Day Parade with Jim Edgar. Dole spoke at a rally in Wheaton’s Memorial Park right after the parade. I camcorded his speech. That may have been the “last straw” for my Democrat GAO superiors. They forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

NEW YORK POST
— ‘Minority privilege’ now more common amid the growing ‘war on whiteness’ – Rav Arora
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors replaced me with my Black subordinate. In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. How soon, if not already, will your employer if you are still employed, the organizations that you are a member of, the governments that you are under, etc. officially announce that they getting rid of Whites once and for all, except those Whites who help them get rid of Whites? Of course, the first Whites to be gotten rid of are Whites who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about Whites who get rid of other Whites. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.)
https://nypost.com/2022/01/08/minority-privilege-is-now-more-common-than-white-privilege/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The left is furious about “white privilege.” And while it’s true white people have benefited from major advantages over time, it’s a concept that is rapidly fading — especially now, as the reverse is coming true. Minorities are increasingly becoming privileged while growing numbers of white people face discrimination. Diversity initiatives have been around for years, but over the past year and a half, innumerable companies and corporations have ramped up their efforts with the goal of “diversifying” their workforce. Tech giant Facebook, for example, has committed to half of its employees coming from “underrepresented communities” (i.e., black, Native American, and Hispanic) by 2023. Best Buy is hiring one person of color for every three new hires over the next five years. United Airlines has promised that at least half of the pilots they will train in the next decade will be women and “people of color” (currently, only 13 percent of pilots are people of color). In May, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot suddenly declared she will only give interviews to “journalists of color” — something that would be an impeachable offense if the situation was reversed (only giving interviews to “white journalists”). The push to promote people of color has become so pervasive that the most objective scientific institutions have seemingly become captive to woke ideology. For example, the NIH and CDC use taxpayer dollars to incentivize biomedical research labs to hire ethnic minorities because “research shows that diverse teams working together and capitalizing on innovative ideas and distinct perspectives outperform homogenous teams” — without quoting or citing any actual research. Minorities are now even advantaged when seeking medical treatment. Last week, the New York City and state departments of health authorized life-saving antiviral treatment for COVID-19 for everyone belonging to a “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity” regardless of risk factors, but for whites, only those with risk factors are allowed it. The DOH cites its rationale as: “longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.” Meanwhile, the rise of minority advantage has come with a parallel war on whiteness, especially in academia. In June, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association — “one of the world’s most respected publications in psychoanalysis” — printed a peer-reviewed paper entitled “On Having Whiteness.” The abstract of the paper describes “whiteness” as a “malignant, parasitic-like condition” requiring “effective treatment consist[ing] of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions.” It adds, “there is not yet a permanent cure.” There are real, accredited university courses that instruct anti-white racism: “Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness” (Arizona State University) and “Abolition of Whiteness” (Hunter College). Institutionalized anti-white bigotry has escalated to genocidal rhetoric. As Bari Weiss revealed in her recent Substack piece, Yale University hosted a lecture by Dr. Aruna Khilanani this year about the “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind,” where the speaker revealed her fantasies to kill white people. Other than university administrators later saying the lecture was found to have “tone and content antithetical to the values of the school,” the backlash was tempered. While social media erupted and Khilanani’s Manhattan-based practice is now closed for unknown reasons, she still has her license. One can only imagine the riotous demonstrations that would have reverberated across the country had Yale hosted a talk about “The Psychopathic Problem of the Black Mind.” The upshot is that pro-minority bias is not only permitted but socially incentivized. Employers, professors and administrators are lauded for implementing radical diversity initiatives. As minorities are preferentially hired across the board and given a host of other benefits by way of their genetic lottery, we must fundamentally reframe our discourse surrounding race relations. While “white privilege” may still exist in some margins of society, it no longer reflects the progressive era we live in.)

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Adding Missing Context to the Slavery Debate – DAN MCLAUGHLIN
(COMMENT: All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany during the 1840s and 1850s. In their defense, they always lived in northeast Illinois. On my father’s side, my great great grandfather worked in a brick factory in Chicago 1844-1854 and then he homesteaded a farm in Crete in 1854. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a hardware store in Crete. My father worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. On my mother’s side, my great great grandfather was a sharecropper on a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated that farm. My mother was raised on that farm.)

(COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government; they get rid of federal employees who are Republican, and especially those who are conservative, White, male, older, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.military.com/daily-news/2022/01/07/army-officer-relieved-of-command-facing-discharge-over-racist-social-media-posts.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Spillane’s lawyer, Sean Timmons, managing partner with Tully Rinckey’s Houston office, agrees his client’s posts are indeed offensive, the discharge status raises the stakes — any status that isn’t honorable can have dire consequences for a veteran. So-called “bad paper” discharges can exclude a veteran from benefits, mostly the GI Bill; hurt employment opportunities; and overall leave the veteran with a stigma that’s difficult to shake off. Because of that, Timmons wants the Army to allow Spillane to leave with an honorable discharge.)

— Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Retirement Pay Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History – Adam Andrzejewski
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $132,845/year in today’s dollars. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,864/year today a) because my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old, b) because my Democrat IRS superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-12, c) because my Democrat GAO superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-13, and d) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and had worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and had almost a year of unused sick leave. Generally, you reach the 80% limitation when you have worked for the federal government for 42 years not including accumulated sick leave; that would have been 2010 for me. 80% of GS-13 Step 10 salary is $106,276/year. 80% of GS-14 Step 10 salary is $125,583/year. 80% of GS-15 Step 10 salary and Senior Executive Service salary is $138,000/year.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/12/28/dr-anthony-faucis-retirement-pay-will-exceed-350000-per-year–the-largest-in-us-federal-government-history/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee. For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019. . .Federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. . .So, at this point, we can use only the last three published years of his salary — 2018: $399,625; 2019: $417,608; and 2020: $434,312 — to calculate his potential retirement earnings. Dr. Fauci earned a total of $1.252 million from 2018-2020 in salary as a federal employee. If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745). However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%).

My 2022 Civil Service Retirement System pension will be $58,101/year.

CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY
— MAY 19, 2014 FLASHBACK: A wealth of advice. Nearly $2 billion flowed through consultants in 2003-2004 federal elections. – Sandy Bergo
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have acted like they took advice from my critics/opponents a) to not read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to blame me and my newsletters for all their problems, for all your problems, for all my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Previously, my critics/opponents blamed what I did raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and my serving as a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2000-2004.)
https://publicintegrity.org/politics/elections/campaign-consultants/a-wealth-of-advice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the 2004 federal races, more than $1.85 billion flowed through a professional corps of consultants whose influence plays an important, though largely unexamined, role in the unrelenting escalation of campaign spending, a groundbreaking Center for Public Integrity study has found. The money going to these consultants amounted to more than half of the total spending by presidential candidates, national party committees, general election candidates for Congress, and so-called “527”s — independent political groups. The high cost of running for office raises concerns because fundraising demands can ultimately bind elected officials to special interest donors and lobbyists who help with fundraising — deepening the widely held perception that politicians serve the interests of large contributors over those of constituents. Potential candidates who can’t meet the fundraising demands are shut out.)

THE BL
— Major companies faced allegations of discrimination against whites in hiring and training policies – Andrés Vacca
(COMMENT: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://thebl.com/us-news/major-companies-faced-allegations-of-discrimination-against-whites-in-hiring-and-training-policies.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many major U.S. firms such as Coca Cola, McDonald’s, Disney, American Express, Bank of America, Lowe’s, and Pfizer faced many complaints during 2021 accusing them of forcing their employees to receive training on issues associated with leftist ideologies such as “Critical Race Theory” and gender policies. There have even been allegations of a preference for hiring black people as a policy of some firms. Major U.S.-based companies had faced legal issues when many whistleblowers revealed that over the past year, they had been forced to undergo training on, among other issues, the highly controversial Critical Race Theory (CRT). As its name indicates, it is just a theory, that is to say, that it is not something proven, and it is also wholly loaded with a strong leftist ideology. In short, these companies have been forcing their employees to receive a kind of leftist indoctrination to keep their jobs, according to the allegations. One of the issues they sought to “teach” to the employees is to know how to differentiate the supposedly “marginalized” personnel within the organization and place them above the “privileged” personnel; this is a typical analysis of the Marxist theory of organizations where they always seek to fragment and divide between oppressors and oppressed, victims and victimizers. This ends up generating controversy, instability, and suspicion among co-workers. In addition, much emphasis was placed on the issue of “decolonizing” the minds of workers and combating aspects of a supposed “white supremacist culture,” such as perfectionism, individualism, and objectivity. These ideas have their theoretical foundation in CRT, a framework that involves deconstructing aspects of current society to uncover alleged systemic racism beneath the surface. In this regard, current and former American Express employees told Fox News in a series of interviews that the imposition of this indoctrination began after the assassination of George Floyd in May 2020, but that the “awakening” training came to light in 2021. In February 2021, McDonald’s announced that hiring too many white men would cause senior executives who did so to lose bonuses, now prioritizing women and “historically underrepresented groups” for top corporate positions. An article published by HumanEvents.com writer Celine Ryan questioned this system and called it “McQuotas.” “But even those who place value on the concepts of ‘diversity, equity and inclusion’ have repeatedly pointed out that these types of hiring quotas are misguided at best, and empty performances at worst, with unintended negative consequences,” Ryan wrote. The multinational effectively increased the percentages of employees it now prioritizes when hiring, without parameters such as demographic proportionality in each country. According to Fox News, Coca-Cola also generated a strong reaction when it was discovered that in its employee training instructions, it included a rule that participants “try to be less white” in their behavior. In March, Manhattan Institute senior fellow Chris Rufo revealed whistleblower documents from the Walt Disney Company’s “Reimagine Tomorrow” diversity and inclusion program. The program includes multiple “anti-racism” training modules. This type of training usually results in what is called “affirmative action,” where the supposed “oppressors” end up becoming the oppressed because of accusations that are not necessarily true.)

(COMMENT: Democrats want to flood America with immigrants because immigrants vote for Democrats. RINOs want to flood America with immigrants because RINOs want cheap labor.)
https://thehill.com/opinion/immigration/587086-for-americas-future-population-how-much-is-too-much
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While some have called for a U.S. population of one billion and many continue to push for an ever-increasing national population without specifying an upper limit, others are recommending a gradual stabilization of America’s population. America currently has 333 million citizens: triple the number from a century ago. The U.S. population is currently the world’s third-largest after China at 1.44 billion and India at 1.39 billion. Although the U.S. population is expected to increase to 400 million around mid-century, Nigeria is projected to overtake it by that time. In addition, Nigeria is expected to remain third throughout the 21st century, with America being in fourth place followed closely by Pakistan. Basically, there are two ways for America to increase its population size. One is through higher fertility rates that would result in substantially more births than deaths. The second is to increase the current levels of immigration to the U.S.)

https://news.wttw.com/2021/12/15/lightfoot-decries-segregation-city-council-defies-aldermanic-prerogative-approve
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 33-13 vote by the Chicago City Council represents a nearly unprecedented rebuke of the decades-old tradition of giving alderpeople the final say over housing developments in their wards. Critics of that practice, which is the subject of a federal probe, contend it has created a hyper-segregated city rife with racism and gentrification. Mayor Lori Lightfoot echoed that judgment moments before the vote, which capped a more than three-year odyssey that became a major flashpoint in the high-stakes effort to combat systemic racism in Chicago.)

DALLAS NEWS
— In Donald Trump’s GOP, no one is too extreme
(COMMENT: In Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton, the more of the following planks in the Republican Party platform that you support, the more that you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned as being an extremist: traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). Because I support all of the aforesaid planks, the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican (MTRO) have always done everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading those newsletters. This year, they stopped me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks. In 2015, the gerrymandered my precinct. In 2012, they ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship. In 2011, they ended my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership. In 2010 and 2004, they ended my MTRO webmaster service. In 2007, they ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership. In 2004, they viciously ended my bid for MTRO Treasurer and ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership.)

HERALD TIMES
— Monroe County Indiana GOP chair resigning; young vice chair to run for post in Saturday’s caucus – Rachel Smith
(COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, etc. are under pressure from Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs to recruit, to retain, and to promote precinct committeemen who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, Trump-haters, moderate, liberal, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, that is, to not recruit, to not retain, to not promote, and to get rid of precinct committeemen who are White, male, older, heterosexual, non-Trump haters, conservative, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs want Republican candidates to lose elections.)
https://sports.yahoo.com/monroe-county-gop-chair-resigning-112256786.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to Ellis, a party chairperson can be a highly influential position as they will have the responsibility of promoting local turnout during elections and recruiting potential candidates. Elaine Thomsen, the county GOP’s secretary, will preside over the caucus, and the party’s precinct committeemen and vice precinct committeemen will be its voting members.)

CONVERSATION
— How the Native American population in the US increased 87% says more about whiteness than about demographics
(COMMENT: I should write a book that compares and contrasts how the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997 treated their Native American employees verses their White employees. I would focus on the preferential treatment, including not being forced to take early retirement, that the office’s Native American employees got.)
https://theconversation.com/how-the-native-american-population-in-the-us-increased-87-says-more-about-whiteness-than-about-demographics-170920
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Birth rates among Native Americans don’t explain the massive rise in numbers. And there certainly is no evidence of an influx of Native American expatriates returning to the U.S. Instead, individuals who previously identified as white are now claiming to be Native American. This growing movement has been captured by terms like “pretendian” and “wannabe.” Another way to describe this recent adoption of Native American identity is what I call “racial shifting.” These people are fleeing not from political and social persecution, but from whiteness.)

— There was a time in history when Republican senators were willing to censure a colleague. It was 67 years ago this week when GOP senators censured Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. Under the very best of circumstances, the past enables us to bring some light, however dim, on present events. – Michael H. Ebner
(COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who tried but failed to get the Illinois Center Right Coalition to censure me at its 2006 Annual Convention in the Wheaton Bowl for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. I would focus on those who blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for Bill Brady losing to Jim Oberweis and to Judy Baar Topinka in the 2006 Illinois Republican Party primary. Since 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered.)
