ALTON TELEGRAPH
— County board trims 34 precincts. State-required change will save election costs. – Scott Cousins
(COMMENT: I only learned of precinct consolidation in Illinois this morning. I erroneously relied on the following to advise me of such things: the DuPage County Election Division (DCED), my representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization. I understand that at its January 11, 2022 meeting, the DuPage County Board will vote to consolidate DuPage County’s 930 precincts into just 607, a loss of 323 precincts. That includes consolidating Milton Township’s 130 precincts into just 83, a loss of 47 precincts. I have asked DCED to email me the new map for Milton Township and the map for the new precinct that I am in. I should write a book about the 2015 Gerrymandering of my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton.)
https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Board-reduces-precincts-in-response-to-new-state-16729105.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Madison County Board has approved a new precinct map that reduces the number of precincts to 191 from the current 225. The board took the action after new state laws were signed in mid-November by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The changes were approved at a special Madison County Board meeting Thursday night. The new map was approved unanimously 21-0, with seven members absent, two participating remotely and one open seat. The changes are the last to be completed as part of the decennial census. In November the board approved a new Madison County Board district map cutting the board size by three to 26 members. “Reducing the total number of election precincts by consolidating 225 into 191 will save taxpayers 15 percent on every election held in Madison County,” said Madison County Board Member Chris Guy, R-Maryville, who chairs the Government Relations Committee. “Not only will a reduction result in cost-savings to the taxpayers, a reduction will also bring more efficiency and integrity to the election process.” The new law requires precincts to be “as near as may be practicable, 1,200 registered voters,” according to information provided by Guy. Prior to that the number was 500 registered voters per precinct. The new state law also requires precinct maps to be approved by Jan. 14, the day after candidates are allowed to begin collecting signatures to get on the 2022 ballot. The full county board took the precinct action after a special meeting by the Government Relations Committee, which approved the new precinct maps.)

All my critics/opponents have the following top priorities:


— Stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters, but failing that, stop everyone from reading those newsletters
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that they cannot manipulate/dominate, that refuse to glorify and praise them, that refuse to pander to them, that refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, that refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or that refuse to give them money
— Destroy those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that support planks in the Republican Party platform that they reject including the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment and/or equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving) planks

I should write a book about my critics/opponents and the success that they have had destroying the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, me, etc.

I would focus on my critics/opponents who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton

I would focus on those who succeeded last year in stopping me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

(COMMENT: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, Capitol Fax is a bona fide news organization, but GOPUSA ILLINOIS is not. They stress that Capitol Fax claims to be non-partisan, but GOUSA ILLINOIS does not. They stress that leaders in Illinois who state that they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican treat Capitol Fax as being a bona filed news organization, but that they do not treat GOPUSA ILLINOIS as being a bona fide news organization. I should write a book about the aforesaid leaders. I would focus on those who a) demand blind loyalty to them and to them only and b) destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money.

https://thehill.com/regulation/court-battles/585593-supreme-court-denies-appeal-by-wisconsin-conservative-think-tank
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The case arose in 2019 after Evers did not invite members of the MacIver Institute to a background briefing on budgetary matters that was attended by some two dozen members of the press who cover the governor. The MacIver Institute filed a federal lawsuit alleging the group had been denied press access due to their conservative viewpoint, in violation of the First Amendment. Evers countered that the law permits reasonable restrictions on access to official events, and that his office’s denial of press credentials to the think tank was not done because of the group’s viewpoint. In March 2020, a federal judge in Wisconsin sided with Evers, finding that the governor had “reasonably concluded that MacIver is not a bona fide news organization.”)
