— Changing slaveholder school names is a chance to confront history. Ideally, CPS — and the city — would seize the moment as a chance for Chicagoans to delve deeply into the truth about our country’s ugly legacy of slavery and racism. – Editorial
(COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, to promote political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, otherwise known as Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, BLM, CRT, 1619, and reparations, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are a Republican, the longer that your ancestors have been in America, the more that you have benefitted from slavery. All my ancestors immigrated 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. 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. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. My mother was raised on that farm.)

Ever-increasingly, illegally, Democrats illegally flood America with citizens of foreign countries. Democrats see illegals as being their soldiers in their army, along with the following, to get rid of Republicans once and for all: minorities, females, younger people, LGBTQers, non-married people, Trump-haters, moderates, liberals, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non-German Americans, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, those who have financial, health, and/or other problems, criminals, boozers, gamblers, stoners, etc.)

FOX ILLINOIS
— Outlets hurt by dwindling public interest in news in 2021 – AP
(COMMENT: I should write a book about the government and political news and commentary articles that my critics/opponents do not want anyone to read. Most commonly, they are articles that promote the traditional marriage/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. I would focus on a) past and present leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, c) past leaders of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, d) past and present conservative and religious leaders, e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers, and g) those who I have sued. I would focus on those who destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or 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. I would focus on those who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who hint/imply/argue/shout that they disapprove of those who share my demographics.)

— How to Make Your Financial Life Happier in 2022. After two years in which many have been under pandemic stress and strain, consider making your money goals focus on happiness. – Anne Tergesen
(COMMENT: What “really matters” to you? Obviously, putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter each and every morning and each and every evening really matters to me.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-to-make-your-financial-life-happier-in-2022-11640399712
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Focus on yourself. Studies show that as income rises, so does happiness. But once earnings reach about $75,000, more money brings no significant improvements to happiness, according to a 2010 study. (The $75,000 in 2010 would be about $96,000 in today’s dollars. The income threshold is likely to be higher in expensive locations.) Part of the problem is that when income rises, we start to compare ourselves with new peers, said Sonja Lyubomirsky, a psychology professor who studies happiness at the University of California, Riverside. “We might delight in a new hatchback just a tiny bit less every time our neighbor drives by in his convertible,” she added. One way to boost happiness is to analyze what really matters to us—rather than to others. To prompt clients to clarify their goals and make sure their goals are really theirs, George Kinder, founder of the Kinder Institute of Life Planning, asks three questions: What would you do if you had all the time and money in the world? How would you live if you knew you had only five to 10 years left? And what would you most regret if you die tomorrow? “The third question is key,” says Mr. Kinder, 73 years old, whose answers have led him to spend more time in nature, with family and writing books. “It is fundamentally important not to compromise on something that, if unfulfilled, would leave you with a deep regret.” Save time and aggravation. Anything you can do to create more free time can lead to happiness,” said Dr. Lyubomirsky.)

— AS FEWER AND FEWER AND FEWER MEN EARN COLLEGE DEGREES: Benedictine University program aims to help create diverse women leaders – Madhu Krishnamurthy
(COMMENT: Democrats use minority female leaders to get rid of Republicans. I should write a book about what my minority female GAO superiors and supervisors did to get rid of me. They forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Before that, they gave me bad job assignments, unfair performance expectations, and unfair appraisals. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They did not promote me beyond GS-13. They got rid of my mentor in 1987 who had arranged my transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. Those who hired them forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— NewsGuard Ratings System Heavily Skews in Favor of Left-Wing Outlets – Joseph Vazquez
(COMMENT: What do you say to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but a) who promote left-wing outlets like Capitol Fax and b) who demonize, denigrate, and condemn the right-wing www.gopillinois.com ?)
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/free-speech/joseph-vazquez/2021/12/13/study-newsguard-ratings-system-heavily-skews-favor-left
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new analysis reveals the extraordinary left-wing bias of website ratings firm NewsGuard, which should concern every American given that it is expanding its reach into cable and broadcast TV news. Liberal outlets were rated 27 points higher on average than news organizations on the right. MRC Free Speech America analyzed the NewsGuard ratings of media outlets based on a list compiled by AllSides classified by their “bias” on a left-to-right scale. The average NewsGuard score for the “left” and “lean left” outlets — which included leftist outlets like Jacobin and The Nation — was 93/100. While the average rating for “right” and “lean right” outlets — which included Fox News, Washington Times and New York Post — was a low 66/100. That’s a 27 point disparity. According to NewsGuard’s skewed ratings, left-leaning outlets have substantially more “credibility” on average than right-leaning outlets.)

— GOP leaders seek to fend off Trump endorsement as far-right Republican eyes Illinois primary bid. – Melanie Zanona and Manu Raju
https://www.cnn.com/2021/12/13/politics/mary-miller-republican-primary-illinois/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump’s closest Hill allies are privately lobbying the former President to get involved in a Republican-on-Republican matchup in Illinois, a potentially messy scenario that has sparked internal strife in the party and prompted GOP leaders to launch a counter-campaign aimed at keeping Trump on the sidelines. At the center of it all is freshman Rep. Mary Miller, a member of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus who has been left without a seat after redistricting. Now she’s deciding whether to challenge fellow Illinois Republican Reps. Rodney Davis or Mike Bost. Hoping to boost Miller’s political prospects, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia — another controversial firebrand who is close with Miller — has been talking her up to Trump and encouraging him to throw his weight behind Miller, according to multiple GOP sources. Trump endorsement would turbocharge the intraparty battle and potentially make things even stickier, something GOP leaders are eager to avoid. So House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has worked behind-the-scenes to head it off: he has urged Trump to stay out of the primary race, telling the former President that Bost and Davis — who are poised to become committee chairmen if Republicans reclaim the House after next year’s midterms — are both good members, sources said. The tug-of-war over Trump’s potential involvement in Illinois is just the latest headache for GOP leaders as they seek to keep the party united in their quest to reclaim power. While McCarthy views Trump as an essential ally in his efforts to win back the House and become speaker, the former President’s meddling in certain GOP primaries could also make life more difficult for the California Republican.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who paint themselves as being GOD’s representatives in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I would focus on those who stress that they are a member of a church, that they attend church services, and that they give money to a church. I would focus on those who disapprove of Protestants and who especially disapprove of Missouri Synod Lutherans. I would focus on the aforesaid who have taken the biggest adverse actions against me.)
