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

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

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

In American politics, everything is either conservative or liberal. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can/will defend/advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to promote conservative principles. The Democrat Party exists to promote liberal principles. The sequence should be this: a) political parties develop and approve their platforms, b) political parties encourage candidates who can/will defend/advance their platforms to run in primaries, and c) the candidates who win those primaries defend/advance those platforms while they are in office.

TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT
— RNC Platform Committee Adopts 2024 Republican Party Platform. Document Reflects 20 GOP Principles, Roadmap to Make America Great Again
https://djt.nucleusemail.com/amplify/v/eQjBXyTuzC
(MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Today, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Platform Committee adopted President Donald J. Trump’s 2024 Republican Party Platform with overwhelming support– a pro-American agenda that stands in stark contrast to the record of weakness, failure, and dishonesty created by Joe Biden. President Trump’s platform serves as a contract with the American voter that makes clear what we can and will deliver under a President Trump administration with the Republican Party leading the country for the next four years. “President Trump’s 2024 Republican Party Platform articulates his vision to Make America Great Again in a way that is concise and digestible for every voter,” said Trump Campaign Senior Advisors Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles. “While Joe Biden and Democrats argue about who will be at the top of their ticket and have implemented policies that have raised prices on everyday families, opened the floodgates to migrant crime via wide-open borders, shackled American energy with red tape forced by Washington bureaucrats, and sewn chaos across the world through weak foreign policy, President Trump will Make America Great Again through these America First principles.” “Only President Trump can restore our economy, restore our Southern Border, and restore America’s standing in the world,” said RNC Chairman Michael Whatley and RNC Co-Chair Lara Trump. “His 2024 Republican Party Platform is a bold roadmap that will undo the devastating damage that Joe Biden’s far-left policies have done to this country, power President Trump to a historic victory in November, and Make America Great Again. Read the 2024 Platform, as passed by Committee, below: Our Nation’s History is filled with the stories of brave men and women who gave everything they had to build America into the Greatest Nation in the History of the World. Generations of American Patriots have summoned the American Spirit of Strength, Determination, and Love of Country to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges. The American People have proven time and again that we can overcome any obstacle and any force pitted against us. But now we are a Nation in SERIOUS DECLINE. Our future, our identity, and our very way of life are under threat like never before. Today we must once again call upon the same American Spirit that led us to prevail through every challenge of the past if we are going to lead our Nation to a brighter future. For decades, our politicians sold our jobs and livelihoods to the highest bidders overseas with unfair Trade Deals and a blind faith in the siren song of globalism. They insulated themselves from criticism and the consequences of their own bad actions, allowing our Borders to be overrun, our cities to be overtaken by crime, our System of Justice to be weaponized, and our young people to develop a sense of hopelessness and despair. They rejected our History and our Values. Quite simply, they did everything in their power to destroy our Country. In 2016, President Donald J. Trump was elected as an unapologetic Champion of the American People. He reignited the American Spirit and called on us to renew our National Pride. His Policies spurred Historic Economic Growth, Job Creation, and a Resurgence of American Manufacturing. President Trump and the Republican Party led America out of the pessimism induced by decades of failed leadership, showing us that the American People want Greatness for our Country again. Yet after nearly four years of the Biden administration, America is now rocked by Raging Inflation, Open Borders, Rampant Crime, Attacks on our Children, and Global Conflict, Chaos, and Instability. Like the Heroes who built and defended this Nation before us, we will never give up. We will restore our Nation of, by, and for the People.  We will Make America Great Again. America needs determined Republican Leadership at every level of Government to address the core threats to our very survival: Our disastrously Open Border, our weakened Economy, crippling restrictions on American Energy Production, our depleted Military, attacks on the American System of Justice, and much more. To make clear our commitment, we offer to the American people the 2024 GOP Platform to Make America Great Again!  It is a forward-looking Agenda that begins with the following twenty promises that we will accomplish very quickly when we win the White House and Republican Majorities in the House and Senate.

1. SEAL THE BORDER, AND STOP THE MIGRANT INVASION

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— DuPage County auditor’s office requests help after nearly four years of dysfunction – GEORGE WIEBE  (COMMENT: I have watched the DuPage County Auditor’s office for 38 years, since 1986 when I was a GAO Analyst and the membership director of the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Chicago Chapter. I had served its Treasurer 1983-1986. I had worked for GAO for 6 years. I had become a Certified Internal Auditor and licensed CPA in 1981. I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I had worked for IRS 1971-1980. I worked hard as AGA Chicago Chapter’s membership director 1986-1996 to recruit DuPage County auditor office professional employees to join AGA. I worked hard to elect Jim Rasins County Auditor in 2000 and 2004. I worked hard to elect Bob Grogan County Auditor in 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020. Of course, I am working hard to elect Grogan this year. Grogan’s deputy was Peter Balgemann who is one of my relatives.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/06/25/dupage-county-auditors-office-requests-help-after-nearly-four-years-of-dysfunction/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For nearly four years, the DuPage County Auditor’s office has not provided a quarterly financial report, a detailed accounting of the county government’s revenues, appropriations, expenditures, and encumbrances. The reports, which are mandated by the State of Illinois, came to a halt shortly after a razor thin election in 2020, in which the current auditor Bill White won by a 75-vote margin, later reduced to 58 votes following a recount against Bob Grogan. Not long after the election, several key staff members from the auditor’s office resigned. “We had a king-sized bed of obligations and a queen-sized sheet of resources,” White said during Tuesday’s county board meeting. “Our target is to complete the quarterly reports by the end of July, we’ll do it the old-fashioned way, the manual way.” The auditor’s office was offered additional staff, according to DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, but the real hindrance was technology. Going forward the auditor’s office is requesting additional software to help automate the reporting process, White said. But some county board members were left questioning why it has taken so long to get up to speed. “If you needed help why didn’t you come to the board … four years without quarterly reports, it is unacceptable,” District 5 Commissioner Dawn DeSart said during the meeting. Every year the county receives an external audit report from the Chicago-based accounting firm Baker Tilly, however, these reports lack the detailed examination expected from the auditor’s office. “The internal audit looks way more into the minuscule, detailed items, plus the external auditor does not detect fraud … this is where our internal auditor comes in,” District 1 Commissioner Cindy Cahill said during Tuesday’s meeting. Also delayed is the auditor’s report on the county clerk’s office, which came under the scrutiny of the board and DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office, after $224,000 in invoices submitted for purchases were not properly approved or made without going through a bidding process. The report cannot be publicly released until the clerk’s office receives and has a chance to reply to its contents, according to White. The clerk’s office will have a week to respond, White said. “We need it done, the people of DuPage need it done, this is what you’re elected to do and frankly there’s no excuse,” Cahill said.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/20240620/illinois-state-politics/state-gop-chair-walking-away-blames-republican-backstabbing-friction/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy’s Wednesday resignation bombshell, blaming infighting in the ranks, leaves a leadership gap that could be filled by a suburban contender. Palatine Republican and former lieutenant governor candidate Aaron Del Mar announced Thursday he will seek the chairman’s job. “Moving forward, if my peers believe in me and give me the opportunity to lead this party, the Democrats better be ready. I’m no milquetoast,” said Del Mar, a State Central Committee member. . .Other names that have surfaced as chair are state Sen. Jason Plummer of Edwardsville, who could not be reached for comment, and former Republican gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives of Wheaton. Ives said Thursday she would not seek the position and disagreed with contentions the party was in disarray. “At the state central party level, we’re all in agreement about what we need to do to beat the Democrats,” said Ives, a former state representative and a State Central Committee member. “We’re here to be the opposition party to their policy prescriptions that have destroyed … the working-class opportunities in this state.” . . . Tracy appointed State Central Committee member Jan Weber to lead the search for a replacement. That person “needs to be a unifier of all Republicans for the good of the party otherwise we will stay in a super minority position for a long time to come,” Republican state Rep. Bradley Stephens of Rosemont said.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2024/06/20/illinois-republican-party-chairman-don-tracy-resigns
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Vanquished 2022 GOP gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey — a former state senator and zealous Trump supporter who appealed directly to the grassroots movement — celebrated Tracy’s departure in a social media post, saying that the “cleansing of the Republican Party continues.” “The problem that Don, Mark, and many others simply don’t comprehend and refuse to understand is that they simply are failing to uphold the party platform. They believe that supporting liberal candidates who will work closely with Democrats is the answer. It’s not!” Bailey said. “Fake Republicans got us into this mess. Real Republicans standing firm will get us out!”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I would like to know where’s the representation for the traditional family,” said Julie Berkowicz, a Republican from Naperville, who was one of two Republicans questioning why the board was voting on the Pride proclamation. “We should support the freedoms of every individual no matter who they say they are,” Berkowicz said. “This type of resolution does not belong here. It has nothing to do with county government. … I’m not saying I’m against it, but I’m saying we need to focus on doing our business.” Berkowicz was one of 16 board members who voted in support of the Pride Month proclamation. Dan Butler, a Republican from Frankfort, cast the board’s sole no vote against the proclamation, saying he doesn’t feel the county board meeting is the forum for it. “I think we got way too many proclamations,” Butler said. “Whatever people want to do, live their lives the way they want to live it, I’m fine with that. I don’t agree that the government should be making proclamations about people’s sexuality. It just doesn’t seem like the place.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/20240609/letters-to-the-editor/voters-must-put-end-to-politicized-justice/
(FROM THE LETTER: The recent conviction of President Trump is a travesty and a stain on our justice system. This verdict raises serious questions, especially given the unclear nature of the charges and the statute of limitations. Many legal experts highlight the politically motivated nature of this prosecution. This attack on President Trump is an attack on every American who believes in fairness and justice. If they can do this to a former president and the 2024 Republican nominee, they can do it to anyone. This is a sad day for our justice system — reminiscent of what you’d expect in Russia, China or North Korea, but not America. A politicized justice system serves no one. Activist prosecutors are using the judiciary for political gain, but the American people see through this. Voters in Illinois and across the country will demand change on Election Day. The weaponization of the judicial system should concern every American and this backlash will lead to a significant red wave in November. President Trump will return stronger than ever. We must fight to restore justice and integrity in our nation.)

For me, it was having enough money to pay form my college expenses and having new cars to commute from my parents’ home in Crete to classes at UIC and then transferring to NIU. That motivated me to a) wash dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago heights 1964-1966, b) clean golf shoes in Flossmoor and chip slag and pump gasoline in South Chicago Heights in 1966, c) deliver mail in Park Forest 1966-1969, and d) work on an automobile assembly line in Belvidere in 1970. Those jobs enabled me to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966, a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967, and a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968 and to graduate debt-free from NIU in 1970 owning that Charger.)

The longer that your ancestors have been in America and if you are Republican and conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, married, non-poor, Protestant, and/or German American, the more that Democrats and RINOs blame you for the problems that Native Americans have. If any of your ancestors homesteaded a farm, you are in big trouble. My critics/opponents have always stressed that my ancestors on my father’s side homesteaded a 240-arce farm in Crete Township in 1854. They trace how that resulted in my parents inheriting 1286 Wood Street in Crete in the 1960s, my brother and I inheriting that home in 2016, and my inheriting that home and selling it in 2022.)

My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their Crete home 1966-1968 while I completed courses at UIC, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. I worked all the part-time hours that I could for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969 and my GPA suffered because of that. My critics/opponents have always stressed that I never got any scholarships, that I only just barely made it into the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School (CMHS) class, and that my ACT score was only 24. During my junior and senior years at CMHS and the summer in between 1964-1966, instead of studying, I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights.)

WGN RADIO
— Getting organized for your retirement future – Ben Anderson (COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, because my Democrat GAO superiors suddenly forced me to take their expiring early retirement “offer,” I had only days to get organized for my retirement future. I had fully expected that they were going to let me work until I was 55 years old in 2003 and eligible for regular retirement. Because my Democrat superiors in federal government had wasted my career and forced me to retire early, my COLA-adjusted Civil Service Retirement System pension is currently only $65,165/year. By their forcing me to retire early, my Democrat GAO superiors rudely flushed down their toilets a) my almost 18 years of experience working for GAO, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $115,439-$150,075/year, b) my six job-related professional certifications (Forensic Accountant-1997, Financial Services Auditor-1996, Government Financial Manager-1994, Fraud Examiner-1990, Internal Auditor-1981, and CPA-1979), c) my job-related professional license (CPA-1981), and d) my three job-related master’s degrees (Financial Markets and Trading-IIT-1997, Accounting-DePaul-1980, and Business-Loyola-1976.

ILLINOIS GOP
— PRESS RELEASE: Rep. LaHood Expose Slave Labor by Gotion CHICAGO — In case you missed it, Illinois Congressman Darin LaHood (IL-16) exposed Chinese battery manufacturer Gotion for using slave labor while being connected to the Chinese Communist Party. While receiving billions of dollars in taxpayer funds, companies like Gotion are committing horrific crimes with America’s enemies. Lahood, a member of the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence called on the United States to ensure that companies follow the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act that prevents products made from Uyghur slave labor from entering the United States. Gotion has ignored that rule by taking taxpayer dollars and working with the CCP.

— Because Democrats ever-increasingly pull out all the stops to defeat Trump, Republicans need to start pulling out all the stops to defeat Biden, that is, Republicans need to start fighting fire with fire. Republicans need to shout what the Democrat strategy is to elect Biden. To get votes from those who do not share Trump’s demographics, Democrats ever-increasingly hint/imply/argue/shout at them that if elected, Biden will give them preference and will get rid of those who share Trump’s demographics. Those who do not share Trump’s demographics are LGBTQ, liberal/moderate, Democrat/Libertarian/Green/Independent/RINO, in America illegally, minority, female, younger, non-rich, unmarried, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Trump is heterosexual, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, married, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and his ancestors who have been in America for a long time. – Dave Diersen

— What career advice do you give? My career advice includes that if you want to work for an employer, find one that accepts your demographics, that believes in your values, and that promotes its employees based on merit. If I had gotten that advice and accepted that advice when I was young, I never would have gone to work for the Democrats who run the federal government. Those Democrats rejected my demographics, they rejected my conservativism, and they promoted their employees because they were Democrats who were minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. They wasted my job-related bachelor’s degree, three master’s degrees, six professional certifications, and professional license. They forced me to retire when I was 49 years old in 1997. – Dave Diersen

My great great grandfather, my great grandfather, my grandfather, and my father were all members of the church and attended its school. But in 1961, when my father was one of its leaders, its pastor, rather than accepting a calling from a Wisconsin Synod Church, succeeded in a) switching the church and school to the Wisconsin Synod and b) driving out the church its members who wanted to stay with the Missouri Synod. Because of that, in 1961, when I was in 8th grade, to stay with the Missouri Synod, my father transferred our family to Hope Lutheran Church in Park Forest. To accommodate that, Hope Lutheran created a new 8th grade for me and 7 others. The aforesaid had a tremendous impact on me.)

Republican leaders are supposed to defend and advance the Republican Party platform, but they ever-increasingly fail/refuse to do so. Further, they ever-increasingly take adverse actions against me to stop me from sending the newsletters out and to stop everyone from reading them. I should write a book about the aforesaid. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— QUESTION: What encourages people to vote for Republicans? ANSWER: The poverty, crime, and even worse things that the following planks in the Democrat Party platform bring forth: a) welfare, that is, dependency on government and charity, b) LGBTQ, that is, the destruction of traditional marriage and family, c) abortion, that is, disrespect for human life, d) mass/illegal immigration, that is, the destruction of America, e) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, that is, the destruction of America, f) gun control, that is, the abolition of the Second Amendment, and g) Affirmative Action and DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, national origin discrimination, and the end of meritocracy.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Democrats run the federal government and use Affirmative Action and DEI to get rid of Republicans. What career limiting things did you do? I avoided the draft. I became a federal employee and stayed one. I did not become a Democrat. I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination. I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 that charged my Democrat superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. Because of the aforesaid, my Democrat superiors in the federal government took many big adverse actions against me and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Because of the aforesaid, I filed a lawsuit against my Democrat superiors for political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination in 1998. – Dave Diersen

I anxiously await the aforesaid information from the leaders of the IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. – Dave Diersen

SEE: https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11 and https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11-0 But by then, my IRS career was ruined even though I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.

ECONOMIST
— Changes to China’s gaokao exam are about politics, not fairness. Extra points for minority students are going away. (COMMENT: Since 1966, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have decried my passing tests including the tests I passed a) to get hired by the Post Office in 1966, IRS in 1971, and GAO in 1980, b) to earn a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, an MBA from Loyola in 1976, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997, c) to become a CPA in 1979 and a Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and d) to become a licensed CPA in 1981. They have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I passed the aforesaid tests because I unfairly benefitted tremendously from tremendous discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time, etc. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college, that my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and that my mother attended high school.)
https://www.economist.com/china/2024/06/06/changes-to-chinas-gaokao-exam-are-about-politics-not-fairness
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Starting on June 7th millions of young people will sit for the world’s largest academic test. China’s university-entrance exam, known as the gaokao, is punishingly difficult. Students spend endless hours cramming for it. But it is also meant to be meritocratic. Work hard, score well and, no matter what your social background, you can get into a good college. Yet the test is administered in ways that do not seem so meritocratic. Local governments are allowed to produce their own versions of the gaokao, with different questions and scoring methods. Students in elite cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai, enjoy an easier route into local universities, which include some of the country’s finest.)

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— Don Tracy Ally Jeanne Ives Attacks Grassroots on Facebook as Powerful Voter Base Abandons Angry Radio Host (COMMENT: My critics/opponents a) oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee members and/or b) oppose conservative principles. They a) have always been angry about positive things that Ives has done for me including appointing me to the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee and b) have always been overjoyed about adverse actions that Ives has taken against me including removing me from that committee. Recently, one of my biggest critics/opponents threw my precinct letter in her trash. In that letter, I had announced that Ives had appointed me to the aforesaid committee.)
https://www.illinoisreview.com/illinoisreview/2024/06/don-tracy-ally-jeanne-ives-attacks-grassroots-on-facebook-as-powerful-voter-base-abandons-angry-radio-host.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Monday, Illinois Republican State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives – a close ally to embattled IL GOP chairman Don Tracy – went on Facebook to publicly slam her own constituents – the conservative grassroots base of the party – for emailing and asking about an incident that took place during the state convention – angrily posting, “canned emails get a canned response.” Earlier on Monday, the powerful and influential base of the Republican Party – the grassroots – sent emails to IL GOP leaders including Ives, asking why SSC member Mark Shaw – who was running for national committeeman – was spotted wearing a “delegate” badge during the state convention when he was not an actual delegate. As a delegate, Shaw could vote for himself for national committeeman – a vote that wouldn’t help, as he would lose the election in a landslide to the grassroots-backed candidate Dean White. But growing agitated by the influx of emails concerning Shaw, Ives decided to go on her Facebook page and post a comment that read, “You send a canned email, you get a canned response…at least I replied to your canned email.” The comment drew an immediate backlash as Republicans fired back calling Ives’ comment “ignorant” and “belittling” to the constituents she’s supposed to represent.)

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 gasoline 1971-1972, collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980, and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. I grant that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take any of the aforesaid bad jobs that I took. But the answer is not to import illegals to take bad jobs. From what I see, many, most, if not virtually all illegals a) would not stoop to take the bad jobs that I took and/or are not qualified to take the bad jobs that I took.)

Wright, and Norm Hill. I remember the primary like it was yesterday. I conducted a major straw poll at the 2003 Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) fundraiser in which more than 400 voted. Ryan won that straw poll. At the time, I was the MTRO webmaster and an officer of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition. Ryan won the primary, but then withdrew. The Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee replaced Ryan with Alan Keyes. Keyes lost to Obama. Obama then on when on to become President. Of course, my critics/opponents continue blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for the all of the aforesaid. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I rigged the MTRO straw poll for Ryan to win. In addition, they continue to blame me and blame my newsletters for Jim Ryan losing to Blagojevich in 2002. They stress that I supported Pat O’Malley in that primary. Constructively, increasingly, my critics/opponents blame me and blame my newsletters for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. Should I start writing about my critics/opponents?)

All my GAO coworkers who were eligible to take early retirement and who had the aforesaid demographics a) cut under-the-table deals with my Democrat GAO superiors to keep their jobs as long as possible and b) flushed me down their toilets. I should write a book about that.)

Taxpayers pay the vast majority of federal taxes on time and without much encouragement from the IRS. U.S. taxpayers paid 85% of taxes voluntarily and on time from tax years 2014-2016, according to the agency’s latest tax gap estimate.)

— Texas Democrats begin state convention in familiar position: out of power but hopeful – Gromer Jeffers Jr. (COMMENT: What do you say to my critics/opponents who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who steer everyone away from the individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform?)
https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2024/06/07/texas-democrats-begin-state-convention-in-familiar-position-out-of-power-but-hopeful/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Texas Democrats haven’t won a statewide election since 1994, putting them on the sidelines while Republicans have passed laws and implemented policies reflecting an increasingly conservative agenda. . .Lisa Turner, state director of the Democratic research group Lone Star Project, said Democrats should contrast themselves with Republicans, who last month approved a party platform that classifies abortion as homicide, seeks to ban transgender teachers in public schools and supports refusing birth certificates for children born to undocumented parents. “That is just otherworldly. It’s beyond MAGA crazy,” Turner said. “It’s really important that the party highlight our differences with Republicans, and they’ve never been clearer as to what it means for Texans. Our tagline as Democrats should be: ‘Join us. We’re the normal people party.’” Texas Republican Party Chairman Abraham George said his party better reflects the values of Texas voters, while state Democrats are weighed down by the policies of President Joe Biden. “From Joe Biden to the horrible economy and the open borders, the Texas Democrat Party is showing the signs that it isn’t with the people of Texas,” he said. The GOP platform, George said, was tough on issues like abortion but captured the mood of most Texas voters. “Those are values that average Texans will align with, regardless of their policies and politics,” he said. Democrats disagree, and they see an opening to reach voters. “Republicans have basically vacated the field on common-sense policies,” said state Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Dallas. “If Democrats would pledge to run the state like a Fortune 500 company, we would be making so much more progress than Republicans are today.” . . . Democrats say they need to craft better a message to voters. In doing so, they want to steer away from culture war talking points and focus on bread and butter issues, including education, transportation, water, health care and the economy.

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— 6/5/24 PRESS RELEASE: This Isn’t the First Time Democrats Raised Taxes CHICAGO — Today, JB Pritzker signed legislation that pushed a BILLION dollars in new taxes onto Prairie State residents. Without billions in federal assistance, Governor Pritzker signed the largest tax-and-spend bill in Illinois HISTORY and is making you and your families pay for it. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time. . .”Illinois Democrats’ bloated budget, which is filled with hundreds-of-millions of dollars of new tax increases for pet projects, illegal immigrants and his socialist agenda, is bad for Illinois,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy. “Illinois families are dealing with Bidenflation, higher prices and more financial problems than ever before and Democrats’ solution is to take even more of their money. Pritzker needs to stop treating taxpayers as his personal piggy bank as he dreams of running for President and of being the far-left’s tax-and-spend darling.”

Pritzker-backed election law that aided Democrats in November. – RICK PEARSON (COMMENT: U.S. President was the only contested race on the Republican primary ballot in my precinct. One office on the ballot would have been “no candidate” if it had not been filled by a write-in candidate.  As Democrat leaders ever-increasingly flood Illinois with voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats, anticipate/expect that because the likelihood of winning is less, fewer candidates will run for offices as Republicans and those who do run will be less qualified for the offices that they seek. Further, anticipate/expect that Republican leaders will ever-increasingly encourage only those who are the following to run: non-conservative, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German America, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Therefore, anticipate/expect that Republican organizations will ever-increasingly run candidates.)

Neither of my parents attended college. I had to work my way through college. In today’s dollars, my father never earned more than $50,000/year. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. My mother never attended high school. She stayed home and raised my brother and me.)

— Judge: Democrats can’t change 2024 election rules now to block Republicans from fall ballot (COMMENT: U.S. President was the only contested race on the Republican primary ballot in my precinct. One office on the ballot would have been “no candidate” if it had not been filled by write-in. As Democrat leaders ever-increasingly flood Illinois with voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats, anticipate/expect that because the likelihood of winning is less, fewer will run for offices as Republicans and those who do run will be less qualified for the offices that they seek. Further, anticipate/expect that Republican leaders will ever-increasingly encourage only those who are the following to run: non-conservative, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German America, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.)

— Democrats ever-increasingly use Juneteenth to promote more hatred against Republicans. My Democrat superiors in the federal government had great success in promoting hatred against Republicans. I became eligible to take early retirement in 1993 when I was 45 years old. I was able to survive another 4 years before my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” and gave by Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office. If there had been as much Democrat-generated hatred within GAO against Republicans back then as there is now, they would have succeeded in forcing me to retire much sooner. They forced me to retire when I was 49 years old in 1997 even though I had earned my third job-related master’s degree and my sixth job-related professional certification that year. Previously, I had earned job related professional certifications in 1996,1994,1990, 1981, and 1979 and I had earned a job-related professional license in 1981.

As Democrats ever-increasingly run Illinois, anticipate/expect fewer and fewer and fewer candidates will run as Republicans.

https://news.wttw.com/2024/06/03/after-would-be-illinois-gop-candidates-sue-judge-considering-whether-slated-candidates
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Sangamon County judge is weighing whether to block a new state law that bans the long-practiced tradition of political parties slating candidates for a general election after sitting out of a primary race. Democrats who control the General Assembly pushed the measure through the legislative process and Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed it into law in a matter of days last month, arguing that slating is unfair to voters who didn’t get a say in a primary contest. Several would-be Republican candidates then sued over the law, claiming it’s unfair to ban the practice in the middle of an election cycle.)

And white voters without a college education, once a core Democratic constituency, remain a key element of Trump’s reelection bid heading into November. – TOM MCGRATH (COMMENT: My parents were conservative Republicans.

He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He often decried his not having a college degree. He died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school.)
