— Trump attacks Kinzinger, other Republicans who backed impeachment in CPAC speech. “I’m not surprised by anything he said. I expected to be called out by name. I’m surprised it’s taken this long,” said Kinzinger.” – Lynn Sweet

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kinzinger is raising money through his federal Future First PAC for his recently launched “Country First” campaign to drain Trump’s influence, fringe elements and conspiracy theory followers from the Republican Party. Donations to that Kinzinger Future First political war chest are subject to federal contribution caps. Allies of Kinzinger are creating “Americans Keeping Country First,” which will be able to take donations in unlimited sums. “Americans Keeping Country First is the only Super PAC dedicated exclusively to protecting Republican members who voted to impeach or convict” Trump, the group said. According to memos obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, this super PAC, first disclosed by the Washington Post, will be “dedicated solely to defending the Republican members of Congress who took votes of conscience to impeach or convict President Trump after rioters stormed the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021.” Even though this group cannot coordinate with Kinzinger’s political drives, he plans to headline events on its behalf where he will “promote” his Country First principles, the group said. This is allowed under Federal Election Commission rules. The goal, the group said, is to “build a potent political operation that provides a counterweight to far-right candidates and groups that threaten primary campaigns against principled House Republican members.” Ardent Trump backer Catalina Lauf announced a Kinzinger 2022 GOP primary challenge. Kinzinger has not made his 2022 plans known. . .Illinois GOP Party not pursuing Kinzinger censure Several Illinois county GOP organizations and the Chicago Republican Party have censured Kinzinger in the wake of his impeachment vote. The Chicago GOP party vote on Feb. 23 was among 34 ward committeemen; the organization has 16 of those 50 ward spots unfilled. What’s noteworthy is that the Illinois Republican Party is not pursuing a Kinzinger censure. According to the GOP party spokesman, the view of the new state GOP party chair, Don Tracy, is that the state party “will not be censuring Congressman Kinzinger. His goal is to unite the party and stop the circular firing squad.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of the pro-impeachment Republicans Trump singled out, said earlier in the day that the former president’s focus on retribution would continue to divide their party. “I think we are a party that’s been for too long peddling in fear, using fear as a compelling way to get votes. And fear does motivate,” he said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “But after a while, fear can destroy a country, can destroy narratives, and it can destroy a democracy,” he said. “And we have to quit peddling that.”)

MORNING BREW
— Why Publishers Put Up Paywalls. We know they can be a buzzkill; here’s why paywalls exist. – Eliza Carter
(DIERSEN: www.gopillinois.com will never have a paywall or advertising. GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter subscriptions will always be free and without advertising. Needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are furious about that. They are furious that I have the time, money, ability, and motivation to put together and send out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter each and every morning and each and every evening.)
https://www.morningbrew.com/daily/stories/2021/02/05/publishers-put-paywalls

(FROM THE ARTICLE: At Morning Brew, frustrated readers email us all the time about getting blocked from reading content we’ve recommended in the newsletter, and as readers ourselves, we empathize. But I want to take a moment to explain why publishers put up paywalls—and unpack the economics a bit. First, the basics. Any publisher, from the New Yorker to Cracked, traditionally brings in revenue from either a) advertising or b) subscriptions. Advertising is great—Morning Brew built a tremendous ad-based business—but subscriptions can be steadier. If the economy takes a dip, ad spending usually does too. How do you drive subscriptions? Not by giving away content for free. Hence, paywalls.)

Trump has done more to defend and advance the party’s platform than any president since Reagan. From what I see, Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO leaders of the Republican Party want the party a) to dump Trump, b) to dump those who voted for Trump, c) to dump its traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks, and d) dissolve the party.)

— IL-16: Adam Kinzinger’s Country First Set to Release New Video as Former President Trump Makes First Public Appearance at CPAC Today – John Lopez
(DIERSEN: Expect that ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters will promote hatred against me and against my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. Previously, these haters promoted hatred against TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and against the Illinois Center Right Coalition.)
http://mchenrycountyblog.com/2021/02/28/kinzinger022821/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’m excited to report our continued momentum and progress as more and more people learn about Country First and decide to join our movement. I’m also inspired by the huge number of unsolicited donations we’ve received from people across the political spectrum who want to see truth, courage, sanity, and decency return to our politics. It’s all incredibly encouraging, and I hope you are beginning to feel it, too. However, I know many are anxious about Donald Trump’s first big speech this Sunday. Many expect him to declare his intention to run for president again in 2024. Whether he says that or not, we know what else to expect: More lies about stolen elections, more vitriol for anyone who dares to criticize him, more self-aggrandizement, and more fear and conspiracy peddling. It will be more of the same. The great news is that Country First is ready to offer an alternate narrative: A hopeful, optimistic view of our future, where the politics of fear are rejected and reasonable people of goodwill can come together to actually solve problems. We know in our bones that America is better than this — and so it will be. On Sunday, we’ll be releasing a new video and doing multiple national interviews to draw a stark contrast between the Trump First and Country First visions for America. And once the video is out, I hope you’ll help me spread our positive message far and wide! In the meantime, I’m happy to announce that we’ve released the first episode of our podcast, which is called Country First Conversations. It will soon be available wherever you like to get your podcasts, but for now you can listen to it at our website or on Spotify. This week’s guest is Congressman Peter Meijer of Michigan [MI-03], who joined me in voting for impeachment. He’s a fellow veteran, and an all-around great guy, so I hope you’ll check it out. As a side note, we did broadcast our conversation live, in real-time via the Clubhouse Drop-In Audio App, where people who join the “room” can participate and ask questions. If that sounds interesting to you, check out the app and feel free to add me at @RepKinzinger so you can be part of the live conversation in the future. Finally, I want you to know we are pursuing every avenue and alliance that we believe will help spread the word about this movement and make a difference for our nation’s future. But our most powerful, potent resource will always be YOU. Please continue to talk to your family and friends, and make sure they know that ALL are welcome to take up this banner. It will require more than Republicans, Independents, or Democrats alone to heal this country — it will take good, reasonable people working together. And THAT, my friend, is why Country First already gives me so much hope. Thanks for reading this far, and stay tuned for Sunday. I’ll be sharing our new video with you, and can’t wait to hear what you think.)

They loathe Fox News but assume that the mainstream media are basically on their side, the same way Fox commentators are on Trump’s, laying the groundwork for him to start his second coming at CPAC this weekend. For the left, over the past four years, a reporter has been an ally and a superhero comrade in the epic mission of destroying Donald Trump. Liberals lionized any cable hosts and runaway Republicans who blasted Trump, even if they had previously been on the G.O.P. payroll, selling the Iraq war and Sarah Palin. Let’s be honest. It’s a lot more pleasant to be hailed by the left than demonized, as you are during periods when you’re holding a Democratic president to account, because the left can be just as nasty as the right.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/02/desperate_progressives_try_to_find_nazi_symbol_on_the_cpac_stage.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Will progressives ever stop comparing conservatives to Nazis? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself for some time and I wouldn’t be surprised if other conservatives have wondered the same thing. In a sense, progressives and the liberal media seem hopelessly desperate to form some sort of pseudo-link between the Nazis and modern American conservatives. Indeed, it’s been a fruitless, pointless goal of theirs for many years, much to no avail. . .While I don’t like being compared to the Nazis, the comparison isn’t even an accurate one given the values and beliefs I and other conservatives hold. Indeed, I’d argue that conservatives are the polar opposite of the Nazis, officially known as the ‘National Socialist German Workers’ Party’. Did you catch that? Progressives don’t seem to like bringing up the Nazis’ full party name and they rarely do so. To the dismay of leftists, yes, the Nazis were indeed socialists. No, they weren’t “far-right” as many have claimed and I’d argue that fascism, socialism and communism are all on the very far-left end of the political spectrum. Compare the hateful, totalitarian and genocidal rhetoric of the Nazis to the values held by conservatives. Conservatives value tradition, religion, practicality, commonsense, limited government, a lasting preservation of our Constitutional rights and an emphasis on individuality and liberty. That hardly mirrors the conformist, hateful and dictatorial views of the Nazis or any other left-wing factions. The far-left (Nazis included) has totalitarianism embedded in its very being. In contrast, conservatives are some of the least totalitarian people you’ll meet. So how should we remedy this persistent problem of progressives comparing us to Nazis? Well, we can certainly argue with facts and logic but some will pointlessly keep trying to compare us to Nazis or other historically-evil groups. Their minds are made up so the best thing we can do is roll our eyes, have a good laugh and provide brief rebuttals if we deem it necessary. To conclude, no, conservatives aren’t Nazis or even remotely similar to Nazis. ANTIFA on the other hand…Well, that’s a different story.)

POLITICO
— When the Left Attacked the Capitol Fifty years ago, extremists bombed the seat of American democracy to end a war and start a revolution. It did neither, but it may have helped bring down a president. – LAWRENCE ROBERTS
(DIERSEN: What did you do in 1971? I lived with my mother and brother in Crete. My father had died suddenly in October of 1969. I started the year working as the Retail Sales Manager for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights, taking a graduate business management course at UIC, and awaiting a decision on my application for a financial hardship draft deferment. That application was approved, and because of my draft lottery number, I was no longer subject to the draft. I believe that prompted Oldsmobile to offer me a job which I accepted. But when I told my Firestone boss, he immediately and rudely fired me. But then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS to be a GS-7 (currently $48,445/year) Revenue Officer in Chicago. But then, my Firestone boss offered me a part-time job pumping gasoline which I accepted. Before I started working for IRS and working part-time for Firestone, I went on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas. My 1969 Dodge Charger SE was stolen in Chicago in August. That directly resulted in my buying a new 1972 Corvette and a 1962 Chevy Bel Air for everyday use. At the end of the year, IRS granted my request to be assigned to its Harvey office.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The commission’s website does not identify why each of the monuments were flagged, although for some the reason is clear, including all of the city’s three Columbus statues. Among the statues flagged by the commission are statues of four presidents: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and William McKinley. Five statues of Lincoln were flagged by the commission, although the commission’s website does not identify areas of concern for any of them — or any of the other presidential statues. Two statues of Washington were flagged.)

(DIERSEN: When were your Good Old Days? Career-wise, my Good Old Days include 1972, 1973, and 1974 when my GAO mentor promoted me to GS-9 (currently $59,258/year), GS-11 (currently $71,697/year), and GS-12 (currently $85,935/year). But then, my Democrat IRS superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there. Career-wise, my Good Old Days include 1986, 1987, and 1988 when my GAO mentor got me assigned to audits of IRS and promoted me to GS-13 (currently $102,188/year). But then, my Democrat GAO superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there. My Good Old Days include 1970 when I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU, 1976 when I earned an MBA from Loyola, 1980 when I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and 1997 when I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. My Good Old Days include 1979 when I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt and 1981 when I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt and became a licensed CPA. My Good Old Days include 1972, 1974, and 1976 when I bought real estate and 1978 and 1984 when my wife and I bought real estate. My Good Old Days include 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, etc. when I bought news cars and 1989 and 1994 when bought collector cars. My Good Old Days include every day since I got married in 1978.)

The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. My Democrat superiors in the federal government did everything that they could to waste my career and to get rid of me.

— A wolf in sheep’s clothing … in Christianity’s evangelical heartland. The Islamic Center of Wheaton is an Islamist stronghold in the heartland of evangelical Christianity, promoting anti-Western and anti-Semitic ideologies among Muslim Americans. – Hesham Shehab
https://onenewsnow.com/perspectives/guest-commentary/2021/02/25/a-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing-in-christianitys-evangelical-heartland
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton, Illinois, is home to Wheaton College, which is dubbed the “Harvard of Christian schools” in America. The city also boasts of 73 churches, supporting its claim to be the town with the “second most churches per capita in America.” But when the First Assembly of God lost its mortgage in 2013, the Islamic Center of Wheaton (ICW) paid $3.15 million for the seven-acre property and moved into the building – creating a hotbed for Islamic extremism in the middle of America’s evangelical epicenter. Being the first mosque ever to set roots in the town where America’s most prominent Christian evangelist Billy Graham went to seminary, ICW raised a lot of interest in the community. On its first “Open Mosque Day,” it attracted 250 people, mainly Christians and students from Wheaton College who enjoyed the hospitality of the new worship center. “We want to present a positive image of an Islamic center …. We just want to be a good neighbor …,” ICW president and spokesman Dr. Abraham Antar told the Chicago Tribune in late 2013. Yet, Wheaton families of any religion – including the suburb’s diverse Muslim community – should question the rosy image that Antar seeks to project. ICW’s leaders belong to Islamist organizations that stem from extremist, often violent movements based in the Middle East and South Asia. In-house guides For example, Antar himself is an “active volunteer” with two Islamist groups (the Muslim American Society [MAS] and the Chicago chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America [ICNA]) that have openly declared their allegiance to foreign extremists. Moreover, his wife Zahra was a speaker at a 2016 convention in Chicago jointly hosted by the same organizations. (See sidebar) It doesn’t stop there. Ibrahim Dardasawi, the imam of ICW, is a frequent guest at Islamist conventions in Chicago, including events sponsored by MAS-ICNA and American Muslims for Palestine, an anti-Israel nonprofit accused of providing a “platform for anti-Semitism.” For years, Dardasawi has “blessed” these conventions with his mellow voice in recitations of the Quran and Nasheeds (Islamic songs). While Dardasawi mainly leads prayers and delivers sermons at ICW, the vice president of the mosque – Sheikh Omer Haqqani – is more active in public outreach, interfaith relations, and youth education behalf of the mosque. Sadly, Haqqani may not be offering mentorship that helps young Muslims at ICW integrate with the community. He is a graduate of India’s fundamentalist Darul Uloom Nadwatul Ulama, also known as Nadwa. (See sidebar). In any case, it is unclear what Haqqani teaches Muslim youth about their Christian neighbors and Islam. When asked during an interview about the books he uses for religious education at ICW, Haqqani refused to answer, possibly because the mosque curriculum draws upon the same radical theories espoused by his alma mater. Outside guides In addition to its radical leadership, Wheaton’s only mosque also plays host to extremist guest speakers. Locals visiting the worship center might chance upon Islamists such as Sabri Samirah, who presented a Friday sermon, or khutbah, at ICW in 2015. Samirah is a well-known Muslim Brotherhood leader in Jordan, and the former chairman of a pro-Hamas nonprofit shuttered in 2004 because of its role in financing international terrorism. His invitation to preach at ICW further reveals the mosque’s radical ideological identity. Indeed, Samirah’s appearance followed 11 years of exile after he was designated a security threat by U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Services. Furthermore, Wheaton evangelists visiting ICW should be wary of the missionizing purpose behind its “Open Mosque” days. These events are often sponsored by GainPeace, an ICNA offshoot that whitewashes militant jihad in early Islamic history and misinforms non-Muslims. In a nationwide billboard campaign, GainPeace sought to ensure Christians that Muslims honor Jesus as a respected and revered prophet. However, less-public GainPeace training materials slander the Christian understanding of Jesus as rooted in paganism and “sketchy biographical material, poorly researched and compiled.” Successfully misguiding Nevertheless, there are signs that ICW’s propagandist teachings may be working. It’s apparent the Chicago suburb remains ignorant of the Islamic center’s radical agenda – as indicated by a Wheaton College professor who violated the school’s spiritual principles in 2015 by declaring that Muslims and Christians worship the same god, and other faculty who delivered flowers to ICW and begged “repentance for the ways in which evangelicals have abused Muslims.” It’s a pity that (Milton) Township, which boasts one of the most diverse Muslim refugee populations in the U.S., only has the Islamic Center of Wheaton – a proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing – for its Muslim immigrants. The mosque promotes intolerance, anti-Semitism, and victimhood, ultimately hindering the integration of the new Muslim generations into the American community. To be a good neighbor to and a positive influence on these refugee families – as Dr. Abraham Antar declared years ago – ICW should revoke its affiliation with extremist organizations and cleanse its leadership ranks of Islamist elements. Otherwise, Wheaton’s only mosque should be exposed and discredited as a radical institution incapable of assimilation.

(DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Far too many Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform, that is, far too many of the aforesaid are RINOs if not anti-conservatives.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/conservatives-flock-to-grassroots-gop-positions-to-push-party-reform_3699351.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservatives across the country are applying for local Republican official positions in a bid to reform the party. Some feel a major part of the party establishment consists of “Republicans in name only,” or RINOs, who no longer represent their voter base. The movement aims to fill the many vacant positions of precinct committee officers. Those involved in the effort estimate that roughly 400,000 of these jobs exist nationwide, with half or more empty, although the precise number is hard to determine since the GOP doesn’t publish overall data. These grassroots positions wield significant power and influence. Either directly or through electors and delegates, they elect state GOP leaders as well as a state’s delegation to the Republican National Committee (RNC), which then elects the national party leadership. They are also commonly drawn upon to fill election oversight positions, such as poll observers and ballot signature verification monitors. Some local party committees also endorse primary candidates and may organize get-out-the-vote efforts for a particular candidate. Interest in the committee positions surged in recent weeks after the topic was picked up by several conservative writers and personalities, and began to spread on social media. The general sentiment of the movement is that Republicans need to get more actively involved in politics and demand that their party and its candidates faithfully represent their values. The idea of virtually taking over the Republican Party through filling vacant precinct positions has long been advocated by Arizona lawyer Dan Schultz. Since at least 2009, he’s produced a book, a website, and numerous articles and videos on the subject and sought to influence the party’s movers and shakers, with limited success. The major breakthrough appears to have come on Feb. 6, when Steve Bannon, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, hosted Schultz on his talk show. Interest then started to snowball, with several articles in small conservative outlets and further appearances on Bannon’s show, Schultz told The Epoch Times.)

Chip Roy (R-Texas) vowed to fight it in the courts if it is signed into law, arguing it is unconstitutional and blasting Democrats for opting not to have the bill go through the committee process. “The definition of sex in HR 5 inserts the right to abortion into the Civil Rights Act, the Equality Act could be used to force a universal right to abortion until birth, it forces medical professionals to conduct or assist in performing abortions and perform certain surgeries, administer hormone blockers even if it is against their medical advice, forces employers to cover sexual assignment surgeries, forces schools, hospitals, and businesses to recognize a chosen gender. I can go down the list, but this is about power and control,” he said on the floor. Major companies like AT&T, Bank of America, Chevron, CVS, and General Motors support the passage of the legislation and are part of Human Rights Campaign’s Business Coalition.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-marie-newman-marjorie-taylor-greene-transgender-rights-20210225-bx67japa3fbmlhvqhrrgab4sni-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Wednesday, Taylor Green gave a floor speech in opposition of the bill and then unsuccessfully tried to adjourn the House to block its movement through the chamber. That prompted Newman, whose new office in Washington’s Longworth House Office Building is directly across the hall from Taylor Greene’s, to display a transgender flag in the hallway. Newman tweeted a video of herself putting up the flag so that Taylor Greene “can look at it every time she opens her door.” That prompted Taylor Greene to post a similar video of herself putting up a sign on the wall across the hall from Newman that reads, “There are TWO genders MALE & FEMALE. ‘Trust the science!’”)

— How Judges’ Work Experience Can Impact Court Rulings — And Legal Precedent – CARRIE JOHNSON
(DIERSEN: What is your work experience? Everyone should know everyone’s work experience. My critics/opponents badmouth my work experience. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $102,188-$132,845/year. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year. I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt.)
https://www.nprillinois.org/post/how-judges-work-experience-can-impact-court-rulings-and-legal-precedent#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Judges with backgrounds as prosecutors or corporate lawyers, who represent the majority of federal district court jurists, are significantly more likely to rule in favor of employers in workplace disputes, according to a new study of diversity on the bench. Emory University law professor Joanna Shepherd conducted the study, which she described as the first published research about whether judges from certain professional backgrounds are more likely to rule against workers. Shepherd concluded that judges appointed by former President Barack Obama with corporate backgrounds are 36% less likely to rule on behalf of employees. Obama judges who have a background as prosecutors are 50% less likely to decide in favor of employees in those cases compared with non-prosecutors, she reported. Her work received some financial support from the group Demand Justice, which advocates for progressive judicial nominees. The new findings come as advocates push for greater professional diversity among President Biden’s presumptive judicial nominees. Former prosecutors and corporate lawyers make up nearly 7 in 10 judges on the federal district courts, which consider lawsuits over employment, immigration, the environment and other topics.
“Our results suggest that expanding the professional diversity of the federal judiciary will do more than just create a judiciary that is more representative of the legal profession,” Shepherd said. “It can affect actual case outcomes and, as a result, the development of legal precedent.”)
