— Donald Trump’s bizarre pitch to Black voters is martyrdom marketing. Joe Biden may be the main beneficiary. – Clarence Page (COMMENT: According to my critics/opponents, none of the many big adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government took against me were because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-13, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and d) force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because in 1988 I became the office’s only active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat IRS Chicago office superiors did not a) fail/refuse to promote me beyond GS-12, b) disallow my travel vouchers in 1974, and c) disallow my education deductions in 1978 because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. According to my critics/opponents, my Democrat GAO superiors did not force me to suffer a $22,996 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO because of the aforesaid. If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my aforesaid Democrat IRS and GAO superiors would not have taken any of the aforesaid big adverse actions against me. They would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service because a) I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, e) I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and f) I became a licensed CPA in 1981.)

DAILY CALLER
— Chicago Cop Sues For Right To Change His Race – SAMUEL SPENCER (COMMENT: If I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran, my Democrat superiors in the federal government would not have wasted my career, they would not have taken the many big adverse actions against me that they did.)
https://dailycaller.com/2024/02/27/chicago-cop-sues-for-right-to-change-his-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran of the Chicago Police Department has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city because they won’t allow him to change his race designation within their records. Mohammad Yusuf, 43, a 20-year veteran of the police department, is suing the city of Chicago because they won’t allow him to change his race designation from Caucasian, even though he “identifies as Egyptian and African American,” according to CWB Chicago. In 2004, when Yusef joined the force, the department only offered Caucasian, Black and Hispanic as race designations. Now, the Chicago Police Department reportedly lets new recruits choose from over nine different race designations and allows officers to alter their gender identity if desired. But in Yusef’s case, the department has a “blanket prohibition” for race changes, CWB Chicago reported. The lawsuit states: “The Racial Identity Policy Ban facially and intentionally discriminates against certain individuals based on personally identifiable characteristics like race,” CWB Chicago reported. Yusef’s complaint suggests that his career was hindered due to his race designation, according to the outlet. “Despite Yusuf’s exemplary qualifications and the purported race-neutral policy of the Merit System, Yusuf has been repeatedly bypassed for promotion in favor of less qualified candidates, based on their race, specifically African American officers, some of whom had disciplinary issues and were not suitable for the responsibilities of a sergeant,” the complaint said, according to CWB Chicago. Although Yusef took a 23 and Me DNA test to prove his Egyptian heritage at the request of the CPD, the department remained unwilling to approve his request, according to the outlet. The CPD does not reportedly require transgender officers to provide proof of their “transition” before updating their personal records.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago has one of the largest income inequality gaps in the country – Jack Grieve (COMMENT: To remedy that income inequality, in 1997 when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and they gave my job to my Black subordinate. In today’s dollars, my annual income dropped by $84,910/year or 57%. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $150,075/year. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $65,165/year or only 43% of what my GAO salary was. Further, to remedy that income inequality, in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO. In today’s dollars, my income dropped by $22,996/year or 21%. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $110,020/year. My GAO salary was only $87,024/year or only 79% of what my IRS salary was. According to Democrats and RINOs, I have always been overpaid.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/economy/chicago-has-10th-highest-income-inequality-us
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A household in Chicago must bring home an annual salary of at least $149,219 to be among the city’s top 20% of earners. On the other hand, any household earning less than $27,255 is in the bottom quintile bracket. That means the city’s top one-fifth of earners make at least 5.47 times as much as the bottom one-fifth of earners.)

I would not have bought that car if my 1969 Dodge Charger SE had not been stolen. I had worked for IRS for only 4 months. My salary was $54,728/year in today’s dollars. I had worked for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights part-time for 7 months and full-time for 7 months before that.)

I should write a book about those who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct suffered since 2005. I would focus on the candidates who suffered losses and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, and Illinois Center Right Coalition. I would focus on conservative and religious leaders and activists.)

I would have majored in accounting instead of management at UIC, NIU, and Loyola and I would have done things much sooner than I did. As it was, I did not earn an MBA from Loyola until I was 27 in 1976. I did not take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30. I did not earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul until I was 31. I did not take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. But by then, because of my bad demographics, I was much “too old” to have a successful career in accounting. I did not take more than one graduate evening course at a time at Loyola and DePaul because of financial limitations and time limitations. IRS did not offer me a job until I was 22 and it was as a “Revenue Officer” job instead of a “Revenue Agent” job because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Government shouldn’t have the power to discriminate based on race – Julian Adorney (COMMENT: Life is a zero-sum-game. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to minorities and/or females is to discriminate against Whites and/or males. My Democrat superiors in the federal government used Affirmative Action and DEI big time to give preference to their Democrat employees who were minority and/or female. Ever-increasingly, to get more votes from minorities and/or females, Democrat and RINO politicians use DEI to give preference to minorities and/or females.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/2861205/government-shouldnt-have-the-power-to-discriminate-based-on-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In his new book The End of Race Politics, Coleman Hughes takes aim at the spread of diversity, equity, and inclusion ideology in the U.S. government. Instead of DEI that discriminates on the basis of race, he argues, we should adopt colorblindness as a national policy. What is colorblindness? Hughes defines it this way: “We should treat people without regard to race, both in our public policy and in our private lives.” One reason to adopt colorblindness as a national policy is that the government cannot be trusted with such a weighty power as picking and choosing which skin colors to favor and which ones to disadvantage. The government’s race-based classifications are completely arbitrary. Hughes notes that the current five racial categories (black, Hispanic, white, Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American/Alaska Native) were developed by the Carter administration and are enormously inconsistent. For example, Pakistanis are considered to be Asian. But Afghans right next door are considered to be white. The arbitrariness with which these lines were drawn isn’t fixable; it’s baked into the cake. Race is a social construct and is at least somewhat fuzzy, so racial categorization means the government will inevitably rely on crude measures to try to decide who fits into which bucket. . .There’s an even bigger problem: History shows that governments can’t be trusted with the power to discriminate. Slavery was the law of the land for 89 years (1776-1865), and Jim Crow for another 100 (1865-1965). For most of our nation’s history, the U.S. government wielded its power to place a boot on the neck of people of a specific skin color. A mere six years ago, then-president Donald Trump was reported as referring to Haiti and African nations as “s***hole countries” from which we shouldn’t want more immigrants. Is this really the government that social justice warriors want to endow with the power to make more decisions on the basis of race? This point should be especially salient for proponents of DEI. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the most popular advocates of DEI in the United States, proposed the creation of a new Department of Anti-Racism with totalitarian powers to police Americans’ speech and actions. But in How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi said that the United States has “stage four” racism (comparable to stage four cancer). He says racism and white supremacy have “spread to nearly every part of the body politic.” If the United States is as irredeemably racist as he claims, who does he imagine will end up staffing his new Department of Anti-Racism? Where will he find the saints necessary to discriminate in the “right” way rather than use their enormous powers to discriminate the “wrong” way? Hughes notes that the civil rights movement and the abolitionist movement fought for the idea that our government should be colorblind. The abolitionist Wendell Phillips said in a speech in 1867, “When once the nation is absolutely, irrevocably pledged to the principle that there shall be no recognition of race by the United States or by State law, then the work of the great anti-slavery movement which commenced in 1831, is accomplished.”)

The downpayment came from what earned a) working for IRS for 15 months, b) working part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights for 18 months, and c) working full-time for that store for 7 months before that. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola in 1972. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $54,728/year in 1971 and $66,942/year in 1972.)
https://www.heritage.org/markets-and-finance/commentary/scranton-joe-and-the-temple-doom-spending
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of young Americans seem to have given up on their economic future, turning instead to “doom spending.” Adults under 30 are moving back in with their parents at rates not seen since the Great Depression, giving up on the American dream of homeownership. So long as the uniparty in D.C. keeps spending like there’s no tomorrow, America’s youth will believe there’s no tomorrow for them.)

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH & HERALD & REVIEW
— With tax credit scholarships expiring soon, Illinois schools, parents scramble to fund students’ tuition – ALYSA GUFFEY (COMMENT: How much money do/did your parents have/had? My critics/opponents have always falsely painted my parents as having been filthy rich because they 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. But in fact, my father never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. Because my parents lacked money, I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964 to buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964. I washed dishes and delivered newspapers 1964-1966 to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966 and delivered mail 1966-1967 to pay my UIC expenses and buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967. I delivered mail in 1968 to pay for my UIC expenses and buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968. I delivered mail in 1969 to pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970.)

Virtually all of them despised/hated Republicans. My Democrat superiors and supervisors wasted my career and took many big adverse actions against me.

https://archive.nytimes.com/economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/29/gingrich-and-the-destruction-of-congressional-expertise/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In addition to the C.B.O., one often hears attacks on the Congressional Research Service, the Joint Committee on Taxation and the Government Accountability Office. Lately, the G.A.O. has been the prime target. Appropriators are cutting its budget by $42 million, forcing furloughs and cutbacks in investigations that identify billions of dollars in savings yearly. So misguided is this effort that Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma and one of the most conservative members of Congress, came to the agency’s defense. In a report issued by his office on Nov. 16, Senator Coburn pointed out that the G.A.O.’s budget has been cut by 13 percent in real terms since 1992 and its work force reduced by 40 percent — more than 2,000 people. By contrast, Congress’s budget has risen at twice the rate of inflation and nearly doubled to $2.3 billion from $1.2 billion over the last decade. Mr. Coburn’s report is replete with examples of budget savings recommended by G.A.O. He estimated that cutting its budget would add $3.3 billion a year to government waste, fraud, abuse and inefficiency that will go unidentified. . .It is essential that Congress not cripple what is left of its in-house expertise. Gutting the G.A.O. and abolishing the C.B.O. would be acts of nihilism. Any politician recommending such things is unfit for office.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When buses ferrying migrants north from Texas began arriving in Naperville, Illinois, which is roughly 30 miles from Chicago, local officials were caught off guard. “We had a total of six buses in December and they went directly to the Metra train station with occupants boarding trains to Chicago,” Naperville Director of Communications Linda LaClouche said. “We did not receive any prior notification of this and became aware of this after it happened.” After those buses dropped off their riders, the city started planning for migrant arrivals and forged an emergency operations plan, LaClouche said. “Given how the situation has evolved and changed, we continue to update our plan,” she said. Naperville has a population of 149,936 and a median household income of $143,754, according to Census data. It has about 68 homes currently on the market worth more than $1 million, according to residential real estate brokerage Redfin. It’s one of a laundry list of Illinois suburbs ? at least 20 in the greater Chicago area ? to which Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been busing migrants since the city of Chicago began fining and in some cases impounding buses. Abbott has not said why he is now targeting towns outside Chicago, and his office did not respond to a request for comment.)

NEW REPUBLIC
— What is/was your occupation? What percent in your occupation is/was minority and/or female? According to Democrat and RINO leaders, if there are fewer minorities and/or females in an occupation, it is because of racism and/or sexism. But wait, what about unpopular occupations, that is, what about bad jobs? Why would minorities or females want bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs. I was a part-time postal employee 1966-1969, an IRS Revenue Officer 1971-1980, and a GAO Analyst 1980-1997. Why would minorities or females want the bad jobs that I had? The answer is that they did not want them. That is why my superiors had a very hard time recruiting and retaining minorities and females. That is why they lowered requirements dramatically to hire, retain, and promote minorities and females. That is why they wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate.

Specifically, the act has two protected classes — sex and African-American employees.)

January 28, 2024

Democrat and RINO leaders have opened Pandora’s Box. The illegal immigration they promote will ever-increasingly increase. Democrat leaders will continue to flood America with illegals at least until they have enough illegals using their false identifications to vote for Democrats that no Republican will ever be elected again. RINO leaders will continue to flood America with illegals at least until they have all the cheap labor that they can use. Countries that hate America will continue to flood America with their citizens until they have destroyed America. Constructively, if not literally, Democrat and RINO leaders have abolished America’s borders. By claiming asylum, refugee, or parole status, all the citizens of all of the countries of the world can come into America “legally” and stay in American “legally.” Because Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration but falsely deny it, a) Trump will be elected, b) the Senate will turn Republican, c) the House will stay Republican, and d) steps will be taken to save America.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/editorials/2821039/huge-loss-for-dei-in-federal-court/
(FROM THGE ARTICLE: When even a liberal federal judge appointed by former President Barack Obama rules that diversity, equity, and inclusion practices can be illegal, it is time to recognize that most DEI regimes by design are invidiously discriminatory. In a case that received too little attention, Judge Wendy Beetlestone of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania ruled this month that former Pennsylvania State University professor Zack De Piero had reasonable grounds to keep alive a lawsuit against the school based on its DEI practices. De Piero said DEI policies at the college essentially forced his resignation, and Beetlestone agreed the professor “plausibly alleged that he was subjected to a race-based hostile work environment.” . . . Those conditions were created explicitly by the university’s DEI policies and practices. For example, on five different occasions, the university required De Piero “to attend conferences or trainings that discussed racial issues in essentialist and deterministic terms — ascribing negative traits to white people or white teachers without exception and flowing inevitably from their race.” In one exercise after the Minnesota police killing of counterfeiter George Floyd, the instructor forced “White and non-Black people of color to hold [their breath] just a little longer [than black people] — to feel the pain.” If literally being forced to feel pain because one is white isn’t racially discriminatory, nothing is. But that was only one example. In another instance, De Piero said the facilitator “condemn[ed] white people for no other reason than they spoke or were simply present while being white.” Meanwhile, he said, university officials specifically told him “to incorporate race into his grading” in a way that would “penalize [white] students academically on the basis of their race.” And it is incontrovertible that Penn State’s DEI director “sent an email to all employees ‘calling on white people’ to ‘feel terrible,’ about their ‘own internalized white supremacy.”)

In my defense, a) neither of my parents attended college, b) my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma, c) he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, d) he died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21, e) my mother never attended high school, and f) I had to work my way through college. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents a) are/were rich, b) bought them cars, c) paid for their college expenses, and/or d) got them jobs.)

— Special monitor suggests Trump falsified disclosures over $48 million loan in what could be tax evasion. (COMMENT: In 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, and 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors knew full-well that I had deducted my graduate business courses at Loyola on my 1972-1976 income tax returns and my graduate accounting courses at DePaul on my 1976 and 1977 income tax returns. But notwithstanding the aforesaid, in 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors suddenly disallowed the aforesaid courses immediately after Money Magazine published its February 4-page article on me. In that article, Money Magazine strongly and falsely painted my deductions as being improper. Money Magazine strongly and falsely hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that the courses were not job-related, b) that the courses did not help me carry out my job duties, c) that I took the courses to qualify myself for a new trade or business, and d) that I took the courses to get a job in the private sector.)

What do Haley supporters think of you? All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany during the 1840s and 1850s. Did your ancestors serve in the Union Army? Mine did not. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In defense of my ancestors, I have always stressed a) that all of them lived only in northeast Illinois, b) that on my father’s side, they were lowly famers in southeast Crete Township, and c) that on my mother’s side, they were lowly sharecroppers in Grant Park along the Indiana border.)
https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/leaders-in-the-making/202401/the-psychology-of-multicultural-identity
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Governor Nikki Haley, on the other hand, belongs to a family of warriors, continuing the Sikh tradition of her people; her husband, Michael Haley, and brother, Mitti Randhawa, have served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. She was the first female governor of South Carolina; she also took down the Confederate flag after the shooting of Black parishioners at Emanuel African Methodist Church in 2015 by a White nationalist. She served as the UN secretary under Trump, who is now spreading a “birther controversy” about her name not being American enough. Yet she has steadfastly claimed that the U.S. is not a racist country. She once checked on her voter registration card that she was “White” when the census classifications were not clear about the “Asian” category on the census form. She has tried to balance the nativist vision of American exceptionalism prevalent in her party with her Indian heritage. Governor Nikki Haley exemplifies what psychologists have identified as an assimilationist view of identity, where the majoritarian White identity dominates the life narrative, while other minority identifications are subsumed underneath. How is it that Governor Nikki Haley, who was the governor of a state where the Civil War started, could forget about the root causes of America’s bloody history? I have a sneaking suspicion as to why she didn’t mention slavery. The party of Lincoln may now want to reassess the history of the Civil War under their new leadership. However, there is a silver lining in all this. Only in America can we witness two first-generation immigrant female candidates, vying for the top job, who are, to quote Thomas Paine, trying “to start the world over again.”)

A new report says city eateries had trouble finding workers last summer, with 82% of them short at least one kitchen staffer. Local owners say things have started to improve, but food and labor costs are still a concern. – Audrey Hettleman (COMMENT: I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights part-time during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee High School 1964-1966 and full-time during the summer in between. Since 1964, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used that against me to paint me as being an unmitigated loser. They hint/imply/argue/shout that they never would have stooped to take job like I took. In my defense, with the money I earned and saved washing dishes, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966.

https://www.dailyherald.com/20240126/news/homeless-man-convicted-of-raping-woman-on-prairie-path-near-wheaton/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A 44-year-old homeless man was convicted Thursday evening of raping a woman on the Illinois Prairie Path (in) Wheaton almost six years ago. Following a three-day trial and less than three hours of deliberation, a jury found Robert Davison guilty of multiple counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of unlawful restraint. Davison has been in custody at the DuPage County jail since his arrest in May of 2018. Wheaton police began investigating the attack just after midnight on May 18, 2018, when a woman was heard screaming for help near the PADS shelter in Wheaton. The woman had dirt on her face and cuts to her upper body. The woman told investigators she had been approached by Davison along the Prairie Path who “demanded sex from her.” When she refused, she said Davison dragged her into a wooded area by the hair and sexually assaulted her. Davison fled after the attack, but was located two days later, authorities said. Davison is scheduled back in court March 7 for a pre-sentencing hearing. He faces up to 90 years in prison.)

— Park Ridge Takes Compassionate Approach Should Any Migrants Arrive – Todd Wessell (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that Democrat and RINO leaders will ever-increasingly demonize you, denigrate you, and condemn you if you do not take illegals into your home and provide them with food, clothing, medical care, transportation, education, etc.)
https://www.journal-topics.com/articles/park-ridge-takes-compassionate-approach-should-any-migrants-arrive/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While no known arrivals of asylum seekers have occurred in Park Ridge, the city has put together a plan that would become effective if a bus load of migrants are suddenly dropped off in the city. Park Ridge leaders have decided not to enact an ordinance that would impose fines on bus companies and their drivers for allowing migrants to disembark in the city without prior notice. Instead, City Manager Joe Gilmore said, an “Emergency Management Plan” has been put together that directs that Park Ridge will “compassionately facilitate transportation (of migrants) to the city of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications.” The plan lays out procedures the city and police department will follow should a drop off occur. In cases where migrants have been dropped off in Park Ridge without the city’s knowledge, “they should be sheltered at either the Dee Road or Uptown Metra station (whichever is closest).” From there, local police will contact the Metra Police Department and assist in getting people on the next inbound train to Chicago. In instances where a bus carrying migrants has not yet dropped off their passengers, the police “should request that the passengers remain on the bus for routing to the city of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications.” According to Gilmore, city officials have studied the migrant issue for a lengthy period of time which for many suburbs has triggered ordinances that penalize bus companies and drivers that arrive in their communities unannounced. Most of those towns say they do not have the resources to shelter and feed asylum seekers. Local ordinances have been approved in neighboring Des Plaines and Rosemont. “The plan is high-level and fluid, and discussed frequently by city staff,” continued Gilmore. He explained that the city’s staff has communicated with other suburbs about their experiences. He added that a recent survey of the Northwest Municipal Conference revealed that a majority of its 46 members have not adopted ordinances that restrict unscheduled bus stops within their borders. “Park Ridge staff discussed this option, and engaged the city attorney, and staff concluded that this is not an effective option, at this time. We continue to monitor the situations and options.” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott about two years ago implemented the program of transporting asylum seekers, most of whom have entered the U.S. through Texas, to Northern locations that have declared themselves sanctuary cities. The city of Chicago considers itself a sanctuary city. Many people believe that Abbott created the program to dump migrants in cities as a way of showing the problems his state is wrestling with. In its Emergency Plan, Park Ridge police will provide “address, guidance, and/or escort to the Chicago location where migrants are given food and shelter. “The city of Park Ridge, like every Chicagoland municipality facing this crisis, does not have the resources or infrastructure necessary to accommodate individuals on a long-term basis,” said the city’s Emergency Plan.)

DAILY CALLER
— Three federal judges are facing a judicial conduct complaint for establishing policies to grant oral arguments based on the attorney’s race and sex. America First Legal (AFL) filed complaints Thursday against three judges on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, Chief Judge Nancy J. Rosenstengel, Judge Staci M. Yandle and Judge David W. Dugan for orders issued in 2020 that prioritize granting oral arguments for “newer, female, and minority attorneys.” The policies “intentionally discriminate, evidence judicial bias, and undermine public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary,” the complaint argues. – KATELYNN RICHARDSON

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/3883986-new-executive-order-will-expand-race-preferences-throughout-the-federal-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Individuals should be treated as individuals and not on the basis of their membership in racial groups, especially by our government. Unfortunately, a new executive order encourages federal agencies to focus on racial group identity rather than the character and qualifications of employees and contractors. It will result in racial quotas in hiring, procuring, and even using artificial intelligence throughout the government. The executive order’s stated goal is advancing racial equity throughout the federal government. The word “equity” appears 21 times. The order brims with talk about “new action plans to advance equity,” “extending and strengthening equity-advancing requirements for agencies,” and requires agencies to convene “Equity Teams” charged with ensuring that their agencies are “delivering equitable outcomes.” While equity sounds similar to “equality,” the two concepts are quite different. A Biden campaign video narrated by Vice President Kamala Harris nicely sums up the difference, indicating that the administration uses “equality” to mean that each individual is given the same opportunities. “Equity,” on the other hand, seeks to achieve equal outcomes.)

If I had been a Democrat, minority, or female, I would have been paid much more than that, at least $191,900/year in today’s dollars. I earned three job-related master’s degrees. I earned six job-related professional certifications. I earned a job-related professional license. All my coworkers who my superiors promoted over me were Democrats who had a) less work experience than I had, b) less education than I had, c) fewer or no professional certifications than I had, and/or d) no professional license. Virtually all of them were minorities and/or females. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lots of things affect how hard it is to find a spouse. Local sex ratios are an example. For instance, in Alaska, where there are many more men than women, it is harder for a man to find a wife than a woman to find a husband. Something else that affects how hard it is for someone to find a spouse are preferences. If a person will only accept someone as a spouse who has characteristics that few people have, then it will hard for that person to find a spouse. In a recent paper published in Evolution and Human Behavior, Robert Brooks and coauthors used computer simulation models to mimic how different wealth characteristics of individuals influence the outcome of marriage markets. Their models simulated a population of one million men and one million women encountering each other and pairing off if they met a partner who met their specification for wealth. All the simulated men and women had a wealth characteristic that was distributed normally in the population, with a certain mean and standard deviation. That is, some men and women were rich, some were poor and most were in between, with the amount of inequality measured by the standard deviation of wealth. The women had the greater requirements for a spouse—they would only pair with a man they encountered of equal or greater wealth than themselves. The men had the least requirements for a spouse—they would pair with a woman they encountered who was willing to pair with them.)

DAILY MAIL
— Frustrated Chicago Democrat Cata Truss calls for Windy City’s sanctuary city status to be scrapped because funds for low-income locals are being ‘divested’ into worsening migrant crisis. Truss wants Chicago to turn away migrants instead of paying for them. She successfully sued the city to block a local park becoming a migrant shelter. Chicago spent $156 million on the crisis and still has 14,200 in its 28 shelters. – NIC WHITE

The following report on Naperville Councilman Josh McBroom’s suggestion that locals sign up to house illegals: CHICAGO TRIBUNE, DAILY HERALD, DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL, BIZ PAC REVIEW, DAILY CALLER, DAILY WIRE, FOX NEWS, HOT AIR, LEGAL INSURRECTION, TOWNHALL, TURNING POINT USA, NEWS BREAK, and INDEPENDENT. Are you a Naperville resident? If so, what is your position on this?

Naperville is ever-increasingly described as being wealthy. How wealthy is your county, your township, your municipality, your school district, and your precinct? What is the mean/median/mode of their a) household income, b) household net worth, c) residence size, and d) residence value? What are the trends? In my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton, there is extreme variation in terms of household income, household net worth, residence size, and residence value. What is next? Will those at the high end be encouraged/asked/forced to take in those at the low end?

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Illinois GOP’s Trump ‘problem’ We asked Jim Durkin, the former House Republican leader and longtime party operative, about how Trump as the nominee could affect Illinois in the General Election. “It’s not going to be good,” said Durkin, an outspoken critic of the former president. “He’s a bully, a narcissist and a pathological liar,” Durkin said, acknowledging, however, here are plenty of folks in the Illinois GOP who “aren’t concerned” about Trump’s actions, even when he was “cheerleader in chief” of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Durkin’s concern: “Trump and the MAGAs have co-opted the Republican Party enough where people who had a moderate or centrist view but identified as Republicans have left the party — and identify themselves as independent voters,” said Durkin, who was the state chairman for John McCain’s presidential campaigns in 2000 and 2008. The new GOP has been “taken over” by the far right, which is “dictating” primaries but ultimately losing in the General Election, Durkin said, pointing to 2022 as proof. The biggest impact: Trump will be a boost for Downstate Republican candidates. The big hurt will come in the northern suburbs, said Durkin. “It’s going to be a problem to have your name on the ballot with the former president in the same column.” The Illinois Republican Party is staying “neutral” for the primary and will get behind whoever is at the top of the ticket, party chair Don Tracy told Playbook. – SHIA KAPOS

JOURNAL COURIER
— Some firearms owners worry state will step up action amid poor registration numbers – Ben Singson (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that immediately after the next big mass shooting in Illinois, Pritzker will force county sheriffs and states attorneys to arrest and perp walk high-profile non-registrants in their counties who share Trump’s demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.myjournalcourier.com/news/article/republican-lawmakers-worry-possible-seizure-18617660.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some Republican state lawmakers are worried the state is going to escalate action against unregistered prohibited firearms in Illinois — including seizing them — though the governor’s office denies any such plan. Assistant Republican Leader Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer, R-Murrayville, said he is concerned Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration would coordinate with Illinois State Police to begin confiscation of illegal weapons, including those now banned under the Protect Illinois Communities Act. “I believe it will happen, if it has not happened already,” he said. Davidsmeyer said he also is worried the government will withhold grants from local law enforcement agencies that did not enforce the assault weapons ban. Dozens of sheriffs have stepped forward to say they will not enforce the ban, a move Pritzker has said would put their jobs at risk. “Ultimately, my concern is that … because so many sheriffs have said they will not enforce this law,” Davidsmeyer said, “that the state will try to withhold all grants from local law enforcement because they’re not doing what the powers on high tell them they have to do.” A representative for the governor’s office said the claims are “all completely false.” The concerns come after few people registered guns classified as “assault weapons” with state police by the ban’s registration deadline. About 1.2% of all Firearm Owner Identification Card holders registered their guns between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31; an additional 5,867 were in the process Jan. 1-16 of completing an affidavit, according to state police. Davidsmeyer said he believes Pritzker will “say whatever politically he needs to say” to enact stronger measures against some firearms. Politicians are “afraid of doing … partial measures” because they want to be sponsored by pro-gun control groups, he said. “Unfortunately, the reality is (Pritzker) wants those guns,” Davidsmeyer said. “That’s it. I’m not saying this to scare anybody. He doesn’t believe people should have them so, at the end of the day, he hasn’t specifically said, ‘We’re going to come to your house and take your guns.'” A representative for Illinois State Police said officers must enforce all aspects of the criminal code, “including seizing unlawfully possessed weapons.” They must operate within the bounds of the Constitution, the Fourth Amendment and the local state’s attorney, the representative said.)

THE HILL
— Democrats run the federal government. Those Democrats do everything that they can to not hire, to not retain, to not promote, and to get rid of Republicans who are conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. That means those Democrats hire, retain, and promote Democrats who are liberal/moderate, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Musk should know that.

https://www.baltimoresun.com/2024/01/22/what-did-i-get-from-affirmative-action-3-ivy-league-degrees-and-another-underway-guest-commentary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As my young family members hear back from colleges about admissions decisions, I recall my experience and how being accepted to Cornell quite literally changed the course of my life. The moment also reminds me how I could have missed the opportunity to attend life-changing institutions if the current college admissions policies were in place then. The decision by the United States Supreme Court to repeal race-conscious admissions looms large. Affirmative action is not merely a policy; it’s a bridge to opportunities once unattainable.)
