— In 2004, I started putting together and sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters each and every morning. In 2015 started putting together and sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters each and every evening too. For the first time on Monday January 10, 2022, a health problem stopped me from doing that Monday January 10, 2022, Tuesday January 11, 2022, and Wednesday January 12, 2022. I slipped and fell on my head on the ice retrieving newspapers from the driveway apron early Monday morning. I was in the ICU at CDH Monday and Tuesday and a regular room yesterday and I was released late yesterday afternoon. I am not back on “eight cylinders.” I continue to have severe headaches, ear pain, heck pain, etc. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— SCOOP: Republican Steve Kim is throwing his hat in the ring to challenge Democratic Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, nearly rounding out a Republican slate for the June 28 primary. Kim is a familiar name on the political scene, having challenged Democratic AG Lisa Madigan when she ran for reelection in 2010. Kim was also the running mate to Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Rutherford in the 2014 primary contest that ultimately went to Bruce Rauner. A source close to Kim’s campaign said he would be part of a slate that includes state Rep. Tom Demmer for treasurer, former U.S. Attorney John Milhiser for secretary of state, and McHenry County Auditor Shannon Teresi for auditor, who announced yesterday. Don’t be surprised if Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin leads the slate as the gubernatorial candidate. These candidates aren’t the only Republicans running for statewide offices, but by teaming up they hope to have an advantage securing a statewide seat (or seats) that are now controlled by Democrats. Abby Witt, executive director of the Democratic Party of Illinois, calls the slate a “Rauner Reboot” that’s being run by Ken Griffin. Actually, Griffin has so far kept out of the statewide races — though he’s acknowledged wanting to defeat Gov. JB Pritzker. For his part, Kim said the AG job is “critical to repairing the state’s reputation as a haven for crime and public corruption.” And like Teresi did yesterday, he invoked Michael Madigan, the former House speaker, in his remarks, saying, “Under JB Pritzker and Mike Madigan, Springfield remains a cesspool run for the benefit of the politicians and insiders and not the people of Illinois.” Kim, born in South Korea, is an attorney with an expertise in international issues. He was an adviser to former Gov. Jim Edgar on trade and Asian affairs, a trustee in Northfield Township, and an international affairs director for the State Chamber of Commerce. He also serves as a member of the Rules Committee of the Illinois Supreme Court. In the private sector, Kim worked on internal and external affairs with Ameritech, now AT&T, while going to law school at night. After earning his law degree, Kim was VP of government and public affairs at Time Warner. He’s since practiced law at a boutique firm that advises small- and medium-size companies. . .Republican Cook County Commissioner Peter Silvestri won’t seek reelection: He was first elected in 1994. “I’m thinking that there’s other things I want to do, like maybe teach or practice more law … and just have more time with my friends and family,” Silvestri said in a phone interview with the Tribune’s Alice Yin. “I hope that my legacy is that I tried to represent the people of our area to the best of my ability, understanding the social and financial limitations that government has.” . . .Pete DiCianni has been unanimously endorsed by the Addison Township Republican Organization for DuPage County Board chairman. Di Cianni currently serves as the commissioner of the 2nd District. – Shia Kapos

DAILY HERALD
— Top Kane County GOP official calls election precinct redraw ‘a farce’ – James Fuller
(COMMENT: What have the following told your Republican Precinct Committeeman about the redraw: a) the chairman of your Republican township party organization, b) the chairman of your Republican county party organization, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, and d) the IRP chairman?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220107/top-kane-county-gop-official-calls-election-precinct-redraw-a-farce
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A behind-the-scenes process of redrawing election precincts in Kane County sparked concerns Friday about election integrity and what will be one of the shortest primary election campaign seasons in recent history. Recent state legislation approved in the wake of the decennial redistricting effort requires counties to redraw election precinct boundary lines by Jan. 15. The changes will affect every race on the 2022 ballot. New rules require precincts to sit within a single congressional and state legislative district whenever possible as well as a single county board district and municipal ward. Many counties regularly split or merge precincts to avoid them becoming too large or small for Democrat and Republican Party committeemen to properly represent constituents on partisan matters. Party committeemen are the foot soldiers of local political parties. The influence of those roles carries particular intrigue for local Republicans who are loyal to former President Donald Trump and continue to support the debunked claims of fraud in the 2020 election. The 2022 elections bring an opportunity for Trump loyalists to take control of the local party. Which voters live in which precincts will be a factor in that GOP battle. Kane County hasn’t adjusted its 291 precincts in nearly 20 years. That’s created 28 precincts that contain far more registered voters than the 1,200-voter cap target suggested by state legislation. Multiple precincts contain fewer than the 500 registered voters state law suggests is too small for a stand-alone precinct. A self-appointed team of workers in the county clerk’s office, information technology department, graphics information system staff, lawyers in the state’s attorney’s office and the chairman of the county board’s public service committee have spent the past several weeks redrawing the precinct boundaries. Kane County Board Chair Corinne Pierog has also been involved. She serves as vice chair of the Kane County Democrats. Except for Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham, who is a Republican, all the elected officials involved so far are Democrats. The public will get a look at the redrawn precincts on Tuesday. There will be a final vote on the remap Friday, one day before the state deadline. That’s not enough review or involvement in the process for several GOP members of the county board. “It’s a farce to suggest this committee has had any role or involvement in this at all,” said Ken Shepro, a county board member and chairman of the Kane County Republican Party. “No member of this committee has been asked to participate in any of these meetings or give any guidance.” Fellow Republican Tom Koppie said the process and the tight deadlines mean the county board will be “forced to accept maps generated by the bureaucracy.” “I do not believe this is what the voting public anticipated or expects,” Koppie said. Anita Lewis, a Democrat on the board who tends to side with Republicans, questioned the process. “And I’m not going to be able to say beyond a shadow of a doubt that everything was done right,” Lewis said. “I just don’t have that comfort level.” Even if the county board approves the new precinct boundaries next Friday, the county staff said it may take up until the first week of February to have maps paired with voter rolls that will allow candidates to collect accurate petition signatures. Petition filing for candidates seeking the top ballot spots is March 7. Candidates normally have 90 days to circulate petitions. Both county board members and the clerk’s office staff said they expect more petition challenges to kick candidates off the ballot because of the tight window and an increased likelihood of signatures from people who find themselves in different precincts.)

— ‘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.)

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 Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party act the Republican Precinct Committeemen under them who are Trump-haters, moderate, liberal, minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, non-patriotic, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time want them to get rid of the Republican Precinct Committeemen under them who are non-Trump-haters, conservative, White, male, older, heterosexual, patriotic, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers who have done the most to drive conservatives out of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization since 2000.)

MILITARY
— Army Officer Relieved of Command, Facing Discharge over Racist Social Media Posts – Steve Beynon and Konstantin Toropin
(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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Author and historian Thomas Sowell, who has written frequently on slavery, has pointed out that the United States was actually the first country in world history to ban the practice. “Slavery was just not an issue, not even among intellectuals, much less among political leaders, until the 18th century – and then it was an issue only in Western civilization,” Sowell wrote. “Among those who turned against slavery in the 18th century were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other American leaders,” Sowell said. “You could research all of the 18th century Africa or Asia or the Middle East without finding any comparable rejection of slavery there. But who is singled out for scathing criticism today? American leaders of the 18th century.”)

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.)

— What top priorities do your critics/opponents have? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

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.

I would focus on the biggest hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.

— One year after Jan. 6, Trumpism isn’t gone. It’s ‘almost a religion.’ The riot at the Capitol briefly looked like it had broken Trump’s hold on the GOP. Instead, he has reaffirmed his dominion over the party. – DAVID SIDERS

I would focus on those who stopped me this year from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

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 have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, and DuPage County. Crete was predominately German American and Lutheran when I lived there 1948-1972. My brother continues to live in a house in downtown Crete that I lived in 1954-1972 that my grandfather on my father’s side had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864 after he sold a farm that he had homesteaded in southeast Crete in 1854. My outstanding parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod.)

— Nasdaq’s diversity rule rankles GOP states – Thomas Barrabi
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs in the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization who reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform, that is, who promote reverse discrimination and who promote age discrimination. The more of the following that you are, the harder that the aforesaid work to get rid of you: Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://nypost.com/2021/12/31/nasdaqs-diversity-rule-rankles-republican-states/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group of Republican-led states slammed Nasdaq’s implementation of a diversity disclosure rule for corporate boards this week, arguing in a court filing that the requirement is illegal and unconstitutional. The states outlined their position in a legal brief supporting a lawsuit in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which seeks to block the rule. In the filing, the GOP administrations argued that Nasdaq rule “violates both the Constitution and exceeds the SEC and Nasdaq’s statutory authority.” “It is unconscionable to see discrimination so blatantly put on display by requiring these companies to hire employees based solely on race, sex, and sexuality,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement. “The SEC’s quotas violate the Constitution and federal civil rights laws by requiring that companies overlook a person’s relevant qualifications under the guise of promoting diversity,” he added. The rule requires companies listed on the exchange to publicly disclose diversity statistics for their boards of directors in a standardized format. The companies are urged to have at least two diverse directors, including one who self-identifies as female and one who self-identifies as an underrepresented minority or LGBTQ+ — and if not, they must explain why they did not meet the recommended standard.)

(COMMENT: Only about 20% of those who take the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examinations pass them on their first attempt. According to Democrats, if Republicans are more successful at something, it is because they benefitted from discrimination against Democrats. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was a 30 year old IRS employee and the CIA examination on my first attempt in 1981 when I was 32 year old GAO employee. Of course, my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I was successful because I had benefitted from discrimination against Democrats, and especially against Democrats who were minority, female, veteran, LGBTQ, moderate, liberal, non-married, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-German American, those whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time, and those who had less money than I had.)

They stressed that I was Republican, conservative, draft avoider, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors had been in America since 1844, Crete resident 1948-1972, Wheaton resident since 1978, Corvette owner since 1971, GAO had forced me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer, IRS did not promote me beyond GS-12, IRS disallowed my education deductions in 1978, IRS got rid of my mentor in 1975, IRS disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974, the Post Office forced me to resign in 1969, the Post Office disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968, etc. They stressed that I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They stressed all the negative stereotypes that Money Magazine had foisted on me in its February, 1978 issue on me. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I was a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. Their demonizing me, their denigrating me, and their condemning me motived me a) to complete the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, b) to pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, c) to become a licensed CPA in 1981, and d) to serve on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996.)
