— 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

(COMMENT: In 1980, my Democrat IRS superiors and my Democrat GAO superiors assured that all my IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, subordinates, and everyone else knew that they had succeeded in forcing me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars (a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10) to transfer from IRS to GAO.

In my defense, I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. Further, if I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female, GAO would have offered me a promotion to transfer from IRS to GAO.)

FORBES
— Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Retirement Pay Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History – Adam Andrzejewski
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $132,845/year in today’s dollars. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,864/year today a) because my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old, b) because my Democrat IRS superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-12, c) because my Democrat GAO superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-13, and d) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and had worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and had almost a year of unused sick leave. Generally, you reach the 80% limitation when you have worked for the federal government for 42 years not including accumulated sick leave; that would have been 2010 for me. 80% of GS-13 Step 10 salary is $106,276/year. 80% of GS-14 Step 10 salary is $125,583/year. 80% of GS-15 Step 10 salary and Senior Executive Service salary is $138,000/year.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/12/28/dr-anthony-faucis-retirement-pay-will-exceed-350000-per-year–the-largest-in-us-federal-government-history/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee. For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019. . .Federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. . .So, at this point, we can use only the last three published years of his salary — 2018: $399,625; 2019: $417,608; and 2020: $434,312 — to calculate his potential retirement earnings. Dr. Fauci earned a total of $1.252 million from 2018-2020 in salary as a federal employee. If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745). However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%).

My 2022 Civil Service Retirement System pension will be $58,101/year. That is a) $2,739/year less than what my IRS salary was in 1972 in today’s dollars and b) only 43% what my GAO salary was in 1997 in today’s dollars.)

CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY
— MAY 19, 2014 FLASHBACK: A wealth of advice. Nearly $2 billion flowed through consultants in 2003-2004 federal elections. – Sandy Bergo
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have acted like they took advice from my critics/opponents a) to not read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to blame me and my newsletters for all their problems, for all your problems, for all my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Previously, my critics/opponents blamed what I did raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and my serving as a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2000-2004.)
https://publicintegrity.org/politics/elections/campaign-consultants/a-wealth-of-advice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the 2004 federal races, more than $1.85 billion flowed through a professional corps of consultants whose influence plays an important, though largely unexamined, role in the unrelenting escalation of campaign spending, a groundbreaking Center for Public Integrity study has found. The money going to these consultants amounted to more than half of the total spending by presidential candidates, national party committees, general election candidates for Congress, and so-called “527”s — independent political groups. The high cost of running for office raises concerns because fundraising demands can ultimately bind elected officials to special interest donors and lobbyists who help with fundraising — deepening the widely held perception that politicians serve the interests of large contributors over those of constituents. Potential candidates who can’t meet the fundraising demands are shut out.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Changing slaveholder school names is a chance to confront history. Ideally, CPS — and the city — would seize the moment as a chance for Chicagoans to delve deeply into the truth about our country’s ugly legacy of slavery and racism. – Editorial
(COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, to promote political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, otherwise known as Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, BLM, CRT, 1619, and reparations, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are a Republican, the longer that your ancestors have been in America, the more that you have benefitted from slavery. All my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s. In their defense, they always lived in northeast Illinois. On my father’s side, my great great grandfather worked in a brick factory in Chicago 1844-1854 and then he homesteaded a farm in Crete. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a hardware store in Crete. My father worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. On my mother’s side, my great great grandfather was a sharecropper. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. My mother was raised on that farm.)

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

I would focus on a) past and present leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, c) past leaders of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, d) past and present conservative and religious leaders, e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers, and g) those who I have sued. I would focus on those who destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money.

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

— Lifestyle Inflation Can Make You Broke (Even With a High Income) — How To Not Fall Into the Trap – Jami Farkas
(COMMENT: My wife and I have always tried to live on just one of our incomes, granted, on whichever income was the highest. We have always kept close track of our income and expenses. We have always put the maximums into tax-deferred savings accounts. Living on just one of our incomes became much more difficult when my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. That cut my income by 59%/year. Living on just one of our incomes became impossible when my wife retired. Ever-increasingly, we are spending more than my Civil Service Retirement System pension and our Social Security, and ever-increasingly, we have to spend down our retirement savings.)
https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/financial-planning/lifestyle-inflation-can-make-you-broke-even-with-high-income-how-to-not-fall-into-trap/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Make a Budget. Now that you know exactly what you must spend each month, figure out how you’ll spend the leftover. That’s necessary to break the cycle of lifestyle inflation, said Jennifer Stein, a certified financial planner and director of client engagement at Priebe Wealth. “To escape this, look at the income you’re making, the bills you have, and what is left over,” Stein said. “Then determine how much you will save and make this your priority. Pay yourself first. After you’ve saved, you can use some of the extra disposable income for things you enjoy and can afford, whether it’s an extra vacation throughout the year or fancy date nights in the city.”)
