— Bailey: ‘To come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639054534-bailey-to-come-here-into-illinois-and-to-add-the-foid-card-and-to-continue-to-add-these-restrictions-that-s-an-infringement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Sen. Darren Bailey is among the growing list of lawmakers to come out against new legislation. According to KSKD, DuPage County Sheriff Jim Mendrick, the top law enforcement officer in the state’s second-largest county, is also among law enforcement officials who have declared they will not be enforcing the law, branding it as facing “a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” In a recent Facebook post, Bailey expressed that background checks for firearms make sense. However, additional restrictions are not necessary. “We can say, alright, ‘Shall not be infringed,’ but yet we understand that sometimes these guns fall into the hands of the wrong person. So we have the federal, you know, firearm background check. That’s exactly what it does, and I don’t see anyone arguing that. But to come here into Illinois and to add the FOID card, and to continue to add these restrictions, that’s an infringement,” Bailey said in a Facebook post. Illinois state residents will be informed further on the new law for firearms once it is fully enforced. Under the terms of the new law, residents will be allowed to keep guns they have already purchased or obtained, along with newly relocated residents being eligible to apply for a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card within 60 days of making the state their new home. Illinois State Police are writing new administrative rules to explain how to enforce the assault weapons ban, with The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) being the final voice in determining what rules are officially adopted before state police eventually circulate them to other law enforcement agencies across the state.)

ILLINOIS STATE POLICE
— FAQS: QUESTION: Do Illinois residents have to register their AR or assault weapons as defined by the new law? ANSWER: Yes. In the coming months, more detailed information will be made available on how to register the firearm. At this time, you cannot submit an affidavit for registration. The endorsement affidavit will be available by October 1, 2023 and must be signed under oath and submitted to the ISP prior to January 1, 2024.

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— DuPage County sheriff says he is not changing stance on enforcing the gun ban – Andrew Hensel (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years (GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, and Post Office 1966-1969), while I did increasingly object to their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination, I never even came close to even hinting that I would not enforce their Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) requirements. In fact, I enforced their AA and DEI requirements big time. To comply with their AA and DEI requirements, I gave tremendous preference to my subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, veteran, disabled, non-Christion, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or had ancestors who had not been in America for a long time. Most of my subordinates were most of the aforesaid. But my aforesaid tremendous preference giving was still not enough for my Democrat superiors. I should write a book about the aforesaid. I would focus on the tremendous preference that I gave my Black GAO CPA subordinate who my Democrat GAO superiors gave my job and my preferred corner office to after they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Cook County’s financial divide is a local example of how policies favor the rich. What happens during the budget standoff in Congress could determine whether it becomes harder for average Americans to build wealth and pay their bills.” Where did you build your wealth and how did the policies there help you do that? I worked in Cook County 1964-1997. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 washing dishes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline. I worked in Flossmoor in 1966 cleaning golf shoes. I worked in Park Forest 1966-1969 delivering mail. I worked in Chicago Heights 1970-1972 selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances and pumping gasoline. I worked in downtown Chicago in 1971 and 1973-1980 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in Harvey 1972-1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked at 63rd and Halsted in Chicago in 1973 collecting delinquent taxes. I worked in downtown Chicago auditing federal agencies 1980-1997. I lived in downtown Chicago part-time 1974-1976 and full-time 1976-1978. In 1978, I got married. My wife and I used her savings for the downpayment on a home in Wheaton, I sold my one bedroom Outer Drive East condo for $61,000, and with the $10,000 gain, I bought a new 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale for $6,000 and a new 1978 Chevrolet Chevette for $4,000 in Glen Ellyn. My wife worked in Cook County 1968-2003 and 2014-2017.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Survey pushes for greater focus on teacher recruitment and retention amid shortages.” The Democrats who ran GAO, IRS, and the Post Office in 1980, 1971, and 1966 respectively, hired me because I was qualified for the jobs and they could not find qualified Democrats, minorities, females, veterans, or young people who would take the jobs. I had a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, and d) earned a high school diploma in 1966. By 1980, I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. By 1971, I had worked for Firestone Stores for 10 months. I had passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970. I had passed the Post Office employment examination in 1966.

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/burr-ridge-enforce-new-gun-law-officials
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But he said officers called onto private property for unrelated matters would take action if unregistered weapons are in view. “I have been asked if this bill is a violation of the Constitution. That’s for the courts to decide,” Madden said. Mayor Gary Grasso agreed with the chief’s approach. “The point being is that the village will not turn a blind eye to the necessary enforcement of this law,” the mayor said. “Like all laws, the chief and officers will enforce them.” He said he wanted to make it clear where the village stands on the issue. “We follow the law and will let the courts decide on the propriety of the law,” Grasso said. The law is being challenged in the courts. Under its provisions, residents with “assault” weapons must register them starting Oct. 1. They have until Jan. 1 to do so.)
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Durkin Seat Hopefuls Kept Secret For Now. Parts of La Grange, Western Springs, Burr Ridge and Hinsdale are in the district.” Conservatives fear that another hate-filled conservative-hater will be selected to fill the seat.

https://patch.com/illinois/burrridge/durkin-seat-hopefuls-kept-secret-now
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two Republicans have applied for the state House seat left vacant by Rep. Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, a party leader confirmed Thursday. But the leader declined to release the names. In a message to Patch, DuPage County Republican Party Chairman Jim Zay said the selection committee plans to meet Thursday night about the candidates for 82nd District state representative. He said the names would not be released until after that meeting, saying the committee would need to talk to all its members about it. Both Burr Ridge Mayor Gary Grasso and Willow Springs Village President Melissa Neddermeyer have confirmed to Patch that they did not apply. Democrats and Republicans have no legal requirement to disclose the names of candidates who apply for legislative posts left vacant by party members. In fact, the parties have been known to keep the information under wraps. The 82nd District includes all or parts of Western Springs, La Grange, Hinsdale and Burr Ridge, among other towns. Durkin, who resigned last month, was the House Republican leader. In Illinois, a state representative’s district consists of about 105,000 people. Republicans plan to hold a public meeting involving interviews of “select” candidates, according to a party news release. The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the House Republican Organization office at 16W281 83rd St., Suite D, in Burr Ridge. Interested Republicans must have lived in the district for the last two years. For more information, call 217-553-7743 or email jaymesiemer@gmail.com.)

— COMMENT: Democrats use African American studies to promote hatred against Republicans. I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. Democrats promote hatred against Republicans. I should write a book about my Black superiors, my Black supervisors, my Black coworkers, and my Black subordinates who rejected my Democrat superiors’ efforts to make them hate me because I am a Republican who is conservative, White, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978.

— COMMENT: Democrats ask “Does the IRS audit some people more often than others?” IRS can use court decisions to disallow just about any deduction that it wants to. My 1972-1980 and 1992-1997 federal income tax returns show that I paid less tax because I deducted my education expenses. In 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my education deductions to punish me because I increasingly complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. They outrageously, disgustingly, and unethically argued that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I took at DePaul 1976-1977 and deducted a) did not relate to my IRS Revenue Officer job duties, b) did not help me carry out those duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) were taken by me to qualify myself for a new trade or business, and d) were a distraction. They ignored a) my IRS Revenue Office position description, b) my graduate school applications, and c) the fact that IRS encourages its Revenue Officers to take the courses that I took.)

I should write a book about the diversity training that they required my superiors, my supervisors, my coworkers, my subordinates, and me to take. I would focus on the success that training had in promoting hatred against Republicans and especially against Republicans who share my demographics.

— Netanyahu Gets It Right on Guns, US Should Follow His Lead – Michael Dorstewitz (COMMENT: The Democrat Party platform promotes poverty and crime. To vote for Democrats is to increase poverty and crime. As crime increases, more and more and more concealed carry permits are needed.)
https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/israel-mass-shootings-second-amendment/2023/02/01/id/1106851/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a better idea. He announced over the weekend what the Jewish state’s response would be. “In addition, we’re expanding and accelerating gun licensing to thousands of licensed citizens, including first responders. This will allow citizens to save lives,” he said on his official Facebook page. “When civilians have guns, they can defend themselves,” agreed Itamar Ben-Gvir, Israeli national security minister. Itzik Chiprout, chairman of the Israeli Legal Weapon Association, also thought this was an excellent move. “The police cannot be everywhere,” said Chiprout. “Even a swift police reaction is sometimes not enough. Civilians that are armed save lives.”)

Previously, they blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for Jim Ryan losing to Blagojevich in 2002. They succeeded in throwing me off ICRC’s Steering Committee in 2007. In my book, I would focus on Ryan’s and Brady’s major donors, political consultants, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. I would focus on the many adverse actions that the aforesaid have taken against me since 2002. I would focus on the many things that I did a) to help elect Ryan in the 2002 general gubernatorial election and b) to help elect Brady in the 2010 general gubernatorial election.)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Mendrick: ‘If they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639176461-mendrick-if-they-ll-treat-your-duly-elected-sheriff-of-this-county-that-way-just-think-how-they-ll-treat-you
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick said U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (R-IL) “got nasty” with him in a phone call after he said he would not enforce the state’s gun ban. Mendrick is one of around 95 sheriffs who said they won’t enforce the ban involving over 170 types of firearms and millions of guns statewide. The law was ruled unconstitutional in a downstate court and is expected to see the same fate in other courts. “My voters had asked me to put out a statement on my opinion of what I’ll be doing on this and the way the law was written. It did nothing on enforcement,” Mendrick told Chicago’s Morning Answer radio host Dan Proft. “We all know if you don’t put who’s responsible, enforcing the law, that it’s going to be an unfunded mandate down at the end of the year. That’s just how this works every time. And I couldn’t get anybody to tell me yes or no. Will we be expected to enforce this? Until I got a call from Sean Casten, congressman, who told me that if I was willing to go to a house filled with Molotov cocktails, I should have no problem going to people’s doors for this law.” Proft pointed out Casten, a Democrat, had suggested Mendrick resign. “And he called on you to resign,” Proft said. “Yeah, to resign. ‘Recall,’ I think he said there’s something like that. He told me on the phone to I have no First Amendment right as a sheriff. And I really thought that was odd, to see the shock and horror of a politician when they don’t get their way or when somebody challenges them, simply because before you even started the conversation of is this right or wrong,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that when he pushed backed against Casten the congressman “got nasty.” “Well, it got worse, he said some other things I’m not going to divulge just because he really got nasty with me,” Mendrick said. Mendrick added that the lack of respect for another elected official had him question how Casten treats ordinary Illinoisans. “But think about it, if they’ll treat your duly elected sheriff of this county that way, just think how they’ll treat you,” Mendrick said. “I mean, I couldn’t believe it. I live in the definition of a hostile work environment, political intimidation.” Casten was one of five other Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation who penned a letter against Mendrick. Casten took to extreme language in his characterization of the decision by Mendrick and around 95% of the state’s sheriffs to not enforce the law saying the sheriff’s “actions are going to make future mass shootings more likely.” Mendrick answered Casten’s accusations in a statement. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation.” Mendrick was clear in his rebuke of the law after its signing in early January. “I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution,” Mendrick said. “Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for DuPage County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act.” He has since become a focal point of angry Democrats seeking to impose their will on local law enforcement. Political organizer Jeanne Ives, a former state representative and former gubernatorial and congressional candidate, was one of hundreds who packed into the DuPage county Board chambers in a Jan. 24 meeting. “I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick. He has done an outstanding job keeping our communities safe. He has also worked very hard in turning around the lives of those incarcerated in his jail,” Ives said in statement.)

DAILY HERALD
— COMMENT: Democrats say “Clarity and common sense casualties of DuPage debate over new gun ban.” DuPage County Democrat elected officials and party leaders have come out strongly against the Second Amendment, in favor of the Protect Illinois Communities Act (PICA), and against Mendirick. DuPage County Republican elected officials and party leaders should come out strongly in favor of the Second Amendment, in opposition to PICA ,and in support of Mendrick.
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20230201/daily-herald-opinion-clarity-and-common-sense-casualties-of-dupage-debate-over-new-gun-ban
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The back and forth between Du­Page County Sheriff James Mendrick and county officials upset about his stance on Illinois’ new high-powered weapons ban turned into quite the political soap opera this month, complete with press conferences, protests, TV appearances and, finally, some sort of consensus after Mendrick met with DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair Deb Conroy Monday. Come Tuesday morning, however, Mendrick had this to say: “Don’t listen to the media,” his statement starts out. “I was not threatened to be censured or anything else during this meeting. The meeting that I had with State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and County Board Chair … Conroy yesterday was the first day three tiers of government came together in discussion on this topic.” First, a little context — and clarity. “This topic,” of course, is the sheriff’s initial refusal to enforce a provision of the new law requiring current owners of high-powered weapons to register them with the state. The meeting he refers to ended with an agreement that he would enforce the law after clarification that the ban does not mandate deputies go door to door checking on compliance. And while Monday’s meeting may not have mentioned censure, it was followed by a joint statement in which Conroy says she will not seek censure — an idea raised at an earlier public meeting and elsewhere. Mendrick’s statement then assures gun owners that sheriff’s deputies would not be showing up at the homes of “law-abiding residents to harass them over gun registration.” “We will not be sending deputies out proactively to take your lawfully owned guns,” he went on. “Please remove that stressor from your lives.” We would argue that Mendrick and others created “that stressor.” Officials have every right to question how they will be expected to enforce the law, but they jumped all too quickly to conclusions and, in some cases, distortions. While lawmakers have made clear that house-to-house inspections are not expected, opponents continue to stoke fears. Earlier this month, Gov. J.B. Pritzker called the refusal of many Illinois sheriffs to enforce the law “political grandstanding at its worst.” We have come to agree. Just look to McHenry County, where the partisanship is so strong Republicans have called for the county to become a gun sanctuary. In DuPage, Mendrick refused to answer calls from local reporters on his stance. He did not appear before the county board. But he was more than happy to share his concerns with like-minded listeners on AM 560’s “Black and Right” radio program and on Fox News’ “America Reports.” It’s a big step forward that Mendrick has agreed to enforce the law. Other dissenting sheriffs should follow suit. But let’s not forget: That was their job in the first place.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Nearly 40 residents speak about McHenry County resolution denouncing state gun ban. Resolution will move to full board despite concerns about ‘inflammatory’ language.” What are the Republican leaders of your county doing to make your county a gun sanctuary?
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/2023/01/31/nearly-40-residents-speak-about-mchenry-county-resolution-denouncing-state-gun-ban/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A resolution opposing the new Illinois gun ban is set to be considered by the McHenry County Board, but changes to the measure are almost certain to come, officials said. The resolution, which would affirm McHenry County’s stance against House Bill 5471, would not make the county a gun sanctuary as some have pushed for, but does denounce the new law, calling it unconstitutional and a violation of the Second Amendment. At the county’s Law and Government Committee meeting on Tuesday, more than 100 residents showed up, with nearly 40 of them speaking. As has been the case with previous meetings where this topic was discussed, those who spoke were divided on the topic. The resolution did not get enough votes on Tuesday to be recommended as written, with the committee split in a 3-3 vote. However, the resolution will still move on to the full County Board where it will be considered in a part of the agenda that will open it up for more discussion instead of the consent agenda where items are voted en masse and typically without discussion. The gun ban, passed by the Illinois General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. JB Pritzker in early January, bans more than 100 different guns from being purchased, most of which are semi-automatic rifles, along with different attachments and caps the amount of ammunition certain guns can have. It also creates a requirement that owners of the newly banned guns eventually register them with the Illinois State Police. . .In addition to the resolution being considered, McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally has filed a lawsuit seeking to declare the law unconstitutional. Other lawsuits throughout the state – including one with a McHenry County gun shop on board – seek similar outcomes. Tuesday’s meeting also follows a statement by McHenry County Sheriff Robb Tadelman saying neither he or other deputies would enforce the registration provision of the bill. He joined roughly 80 other sheriffs in Illinois in making the declaration.)

DUPAGE COUNTY
— Joint Statement on DuPage County Public Safety (QUESTIONS: DuPage County has the second most residents of Illinois’ 102 counties. It has more residents than five states and the District of Columbia. What do the 80 Illinois County Sheriffs who object to the Protect Illinois Communities Act  (PICA) have to say about this? Have any of them been threatened with censure like Mendrick has been? So far, exactly what has Pritzker demanded that Illinois County Sheriffs do to implement the PICA? What will Pritzker demand that they do to implement the act? How do Illinois residents become “licensed” to own an assault weapon? Is it by having a FOID card? If Illinois residents become licensed to own assault weapons by having a FOID card, what about those in DuPage County who have assault weapons but do not have a FOID card? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from them? What if Pritzker gives Mendrick a list of residences in DuPage County that have assault weapons in them but no one living there has a FOID card? What if Pritzker demands that Mendrick go to those doors seeking to remove those assault weapons? Has/will Pritzker demanded/demand that after January 1, 2024, Illinois County Sheriffs go door to door seeking to remove assault weapons from those who have failed/refused to register them in their county?)
https://www.dupagecounty.gov/Content.aspx?id=67541
(THE STATEMENT: Statement attributable to DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, and DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin: “DuPage County Board Chair Deborah Conroy, Sheriff James Mendrick, and State’s Attorney Robert Berlin engaged in a meaningful conversation during which they discussed their shared commitment to the safety of DuPage County residents. The conversation also included discussion of Illinois’ new assault weapons ban, known as the Protect Illinois Communities Act. Enforcement of this law does not demand that deputies go door to door seeking to remove weapons from those licensed to own them. With this understanding, Sheriff Mendrick is committed to enforcing all state and local laws. Chair Conroy is committed to supporting the Sheriff’s Office in maintaining safe communities within DuPage County and sees no reason to pursue a censure resolution at this time. All parties look forward to positive, productive collaboration on important initiatives that will keep DuPage residents safe and ensure the security of our communities moving forward.”)

CENTER SQUARE ILLINOIS
— Illinois State Police enforcing state’s gun ban, reveal one case under investigation – Greg Bishop (COMMENT: Exactly what has Pritzker demanded that your County Sheriff do to enforce the Protect Illinois Communities Act? Is your County Sheriff complying with those demands? For example, what if someone in your county continues to sell assault weapons to residents of Illinois and Pritzker demands that your County Sheriff stop them?)
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/illinois-state-police-enforcing-state-s-gun-ban-reveal-one-case-under-investigation/article_6462dc04-a0f0-11ed-a9d5-d30cb6d205bd.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois State Police say they took enforcement action against a business for openly advertising the sale of newly banned weapons, but no additional information was provided. In a YouTube video Friday, gun-rights advocate Todd Vandermyde revealed he’d been told that the state is taking actions to enforce the state’s ban on certain semiautomatic guns and magazines. “It appears that there was a gun shop that was selling stuff, post the enactment,” Vandermyde said after sharing an anonymous tip that state police confiscated weapons from an individual. Monday, a spokesperson for Illinois State Police confirmed in a statement to The Center Square that ISP took enforcement action earlier this month against a business for “openly advertising the sale of banned weapons.” The statement said the investigation is ongoing and additional information wasn’t immediately available. Vandermyde cautioned what he sees transpiring. Cook County Sheriff “Tom Dart and everybody can say there aren’t going to be house-to-house searches, I would beg to differ with you, sheriff,” Vandermyde said. While Dart has said they will enforce the gun ban, most of the state’s 102 sheriffs have said they won’t. ISP said Monday state police are “charged with upholding all state laws, including enforcement of businesses that openly violate current laws.” The law is being challenged in several state and federal judicial circuits. In McHenry County Monday, a motion was made to move its gun-ban challenge from state court to federal court. In several separate pending federal cases, ISP made a motion to consolidate into a Crawford County case last week. Chief U.S. District Judge Nancy Rosenstengel, an Obama appointee, reassigned two of those cases to Stephen McGlynn, a Trump-appointed judge. “The action arises out of the same facts and is closely related to [the Illinois State Rifle Association’s] Harrel, et al. v. Raoul … which was filed before this action and is assigned to District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn,” Rosenstengel said. The Crawford County case Langley v. Kelly was the first lawsuit filed against Illinois’ gun ban in state court, but it was transferred to federal court after the ISRA case was filed in federal court with a judge assigned. ISRA’s Ed Sullivan said while there are several independent cases in Illinois courts alleging individuals’ Second Amendment rights are being infringed, “we also have to keep an eye on the price elsewhere as well,” including a Second Amendment case filed in Maryland. “Because what happens elsewhere certainly can influence what happens here, so I think Maryland is the most obvious target for us to keep an eye out,” Sullivan told The Center Square. In that Maryland case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit heard oral arguments Dec. 6. It’s unclear when a ruling would be rendered. Still pending in Illinois federal court is a ruling on a TRO in the challenge of Naperville’s gun ban. The judge in that case Monday notified the state that it is also a defendant after plaintiffs expanded their challenge last week. In a separate state challenge last week, state Rep. Dan Caulkins, R-Decatur, filed a lawsuit against the state’s gun ban. Caulkins is the lead plaintiff with a new association called Law-Abiding Gun Owners of Macon County. Attorney Thomas DeVore filed to intervene, claiming he has clients that don’t want to be part of a group he said may not stand legal scrutiny. “Dan is trying to take the position that my clients are members of an association that they never heard of and they never agreed to join and that could place some risk on them,” DeVore told The Center Square. “The attorney general might want to start deposing them.” DeVore filed an Effingham County challenge on behalf of 866 named plaintiffs. It is pending an appellate court decision of a lower court’s temporary restraining order blocking the law. A ruling on a TRO is pending in a White County case where DeVore represents nearly 1,700 named plaintiffs. Caulkins’ attorney Jerry Stock labeled DeVore’s filing as a “side show.” Stock argued he doesn’t need hundreds of plaintiffs in a case to prove the law is unconstitutional. “There was no way I was going to attempt to represent hundreds of clients when the remedy sought is a judgment, not the temporary time out,” Stock told The Center Square. “While we’ll seek that on this path, the real goal was to knock this legislation out. I thought that my firm taking a fee based on the volume of clients was not something I could be comfortable with ethically.” Stock said he wasn’t casting aspersions and people can hire any attorney they want, but he “very strongly disagrees” with DeVore’s approach. “I think it’s a far more liberal way of pursuing the claims,” Stock said. “And not having to implicate every individual gun owner or to charge every individual gun owner a fee, because it just was not necessary.” A hearing in Caulkins’ case is set for Friday in Macon County.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— The gun ban law won’t protect us from criminals – Randy Illg, Union
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/30/letter-the-gun-ban-law-wont-protect-us-from-criminals/
(FROM THE LETTER: The supposed intent of the gun ban law is to make us all safe. After the governor signed it, did you feel safer? Did you sleep better last night? The actual intent of the ban is to remove all small arms from civilian ownership. The Second Amendment deals with this because the men who wrote it understood that a defenseless citizenry is the breeding ground for dictators to take control. Law enforcement personnel, from the lowest rank to the state attorney, make value judgments every day. If they didn’t, every one of us would be driving 45 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, and every arrest would automatically result in prosecution. Why didn’t you cry foul when cities decided to become sanctuary cities for illegal aliens? Where was your outrage then? If you believe that this law will make us safer, you are mistaken. Criminals do not respect the law. Why don’t you call the governor of California and ask him how gun control is working for them? Criminals do not get FOID cards. They don’t go through the same training and licensing process as law-abiding citizens. Criminals don’t care about anyone but themselves. The only thing that will stop a criminal threat to your life is force. Once you understand this, you will do the right thing, arm yourself, and join those of us who are willing to stand up for what is right. Sleep tight.)

In the 2002 Illinois Republican gubernatorial primary, I backed Pat O/Malley. Ever since then, my anti-conservative and conservative-hating Jim Ryan promoting critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have viciously demonized me, viciously denigrated me, viciously condemned me, and viciously punished me for being “disloyal” to Jim Ryan. They ignore, dismiss, belittle, badmouth, demonize, denigrate, and condemn what I did to help elect Ryan in the general election in 2002. They continue to blame me and they continue to blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters a) for Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich in 2002 and b) for all the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2002 have suffered. They continue to demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me as being “too conservative.”)

— Stop calling semi-automatic rifles assault rifles – Patrick Donlea, Crystal Lake
https://www.shawlocal.com/northwest-herald/opinion/letters-to-the-editor/2023/01/29/letter-stop-calling-semi-automatic-rifles-assault-rifles/
(FROM THE LETTER: I understand many people use hyperbole to make their arguments sound more compelling. That being said, we have to stop calling any semi-automatic rifle designed and sold for civilian and police use an “assault rifle.” An assault rifle is a specific tool designed for and used by the military. Because of this, it should not be available for civilian or civil police use. The assault rifle is distinguished from the standard battle rifle by three primary characteristics that make it easier to use in close quarters, such as urban or jungle fighting. These characteristics are: 1. It’s comparatively short and light. 2.
It fires a less powerful, and, therefore lighter, round bullet. 3. It has a selective fire switch which allows it to shoot in either semi-automatic or fully automatic mode, such as firing three shot bursts as a third option. The last of these characteristics makes it a type of machine gun. This puts the assault rifle under the registration requirements of the National Firearms Act (NFA). It should be noted that Illinois law has already prohibited the possession of all NFA weapons, specifically machine guns, by Illinois residents since 1961 (720 ILCS 5/24). So, please stop calling a semi-automatic rifle a machine gun or assault rifle when discussing current gun laws. For the past 62 years, it has been illegal to own assault rifles in Illinois.)

GAO hired me in 1980 when I was 31, IRS hired me in 1971 when I was 22, and Firestone Stores hired me in 1970 when I was 21. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who GAO, IRS, and Firestone Stores would not have hired back then if they were as old as back then I was because they would not have met job requirements. GAO would not have hired me if I had not a) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, b) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and d) worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$194,583/year. IRS would not have hired me if I had not a) worked the previous 10 months for Firestone Stores and b) earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. Firestone Stores would not have hired me if I had not earned the aforesaid degree.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned that impact the most.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— 7 Lessons From Those Who Retired By FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early). Equip yourself with the tools to enjoy early retirement. – Rachel Hartman (COMMENT: Because my Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those who ancestors had been America for a long time and who they had not promote to Senior Executive Service, currently $183,500/year by age 40, I planned on retiring as soon I became eligible for regular retirement in 2003 when I would be 55. But they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. Consequently my Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension is significantly less. My CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old.)
https://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/aging/articles/lessons-from-those-who-retired-by-fire

FORBES
— America Needs To Improve How It Treats Its Older Workers – Teresa Ghilarducci
https://www.forbes.com/sites/teresaghilarducci/2023/01/28/how-america-treats-its-older-workers-new-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Involuntary Retirement It is hard for older workers to keep a job, as Urban Institute’s Richard W. Johnson showed the economists gathered there. Older workers do worse under conditions of layoffs and business closures. Job-finding is easier for workers under 50 who get displaced from a job — more than 70% of displaced workers under 50 typically find new work within three years of their job loss. For workers 55-61, however, that number falls to 59%. Among those who can start claiming Social Security, at ages 62 and older the reemployment rate falls to just 38%. So they claim early Social Security benefits at reduced monthly benefits or they start bidding down and take jobs that are worse than their previous ones. Early retirement is an all-too-common last resort, and involuntary retirements increase the risk of depression and downward mobility. Labor market scarring is another effect of job loss beyond the pain of unemployment. Scarring refers to the earnings losses experienced by displaced workers who do manage to find work again. Once again, things get worse as you move up in age. Re-employed displaced workers, age 55-61, earn 22% less than they did before, a scarring effect that is more than twice as severe as for those in their 30s. Weekly earnings are 29% lower for reemployed displaced workers 62 and older.)

HR DRIVE
— COMMENT: Democrats say “6 diversity and inclusion trends to watch in 2023.” (COMMENT: Since I became a federal employee in 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)
https://www.hrdive.com/news/2023-diversity-and-inclusion-trends/641211/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A phenomenon Stamps said she’s been thinking about lately is medical challenges forcing early retirement. “If you’re forced to retire, you’re theoretically less prepared for retirement than the average [person] and you have more debt. That’s more challenging because now you have a sort of fixed income if you’re lucky. Getting any kind of fixed income that you have to depend on kind of perpetuates the racial wealth gap.”)

NASDAQ
— How to Save for Retirement Even When You’re in Your 20s and Broke – Mary Ellen Cagnassola (COMMENT: I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension in 1966 when I was 18 years old and started working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office. I earned full-time CSRS credits even though I worked only part-time. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious about that ever since then. I earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits working for IRS 1971-1980 and almost 18 years of CSRS credits working for GAO 1980-1997. My CSRS pension is dramatically reduced a) because my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors wasted my career and took many adverse actions against me and b) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Nevertheless, my CSRS pension is currently $63,144/year. But my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In addition, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have been ever-increasingly furious because as a federal employee and retiree, the federal government pays 72% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance.)

FED SMITH
— The 2023 COLA is the largest in over 40 years. (COMMENT: My Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension increased from $58,101/year to $63,144/year, that is, by $5,043/year, that is, by 8.7%. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious about that. In my defense, my CSRS pension today is less than what my IRS salary was in today’s dollars in 1972 when I was 23 years old. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. To qualify myself for better paying federal jobs, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 years old in 1970, b) I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and d) I earned a job-related professional license in 1981. I ask my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) what did they do to qualify themselves for better paying jobs and b) why didn’t they become federal employees?)

Ever-increasingly, because I was Republican, White, male, and older, the following meant absolutely nothing to them: a) my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) my earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) my becoming a licensed CPA in 1981, e) my becoming Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1996, and f) my earning a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. The aforesaid actually made them furious because my coworkers who they promoted over me did not have the aforesaid.)

— COMMENT: Democrats ask “Bad candidates or not enough money?” and say “RNC officials debate why they lost in 2022. In a closed-door session during this week’s RNC meeting, two members working on the party’s 2022 audit debated whether “candidate quality” was to blame for midterm losses.” Ever-increasingly, in deciding which candidates to back in primaries and in nonpartisan races, conservative and Republican organizations give more and more and more weight to candidate demographics instead of candidate quadfurcations. Ever-increasingly, they give more and more and more preference to candidates who are minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. I should write a book about how conservative and Republican organizations have ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: a) GAO Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,732-$142,650/year, b) IRS Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year, c) I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, d) I became a licensed CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, and e) I earned an MBA from Loyola, master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. I should write a book about how the following ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my qualifications: Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. They would not have done that if I had been a minority, female, younger, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or if my ancestors had not been in America for a long time.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Maine Republican Party elects Joel Stetkis as new chair.” In Illinois, anti-conservative Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO Republican Party leaders blame Republican losses on the Republican Party platform and on those who support it. They especially blame the individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I should write a book about the aforesaid anti-conservative Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization leaders.

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Student loan forgiveness: Here’s the number of eligible borrowers who applied by US state.” In Illinois, the number of borrowers who applied or were automatically deemed eligible is 1,044,000. Did you get a student loan? I did not. First off, I doubt that I could have gotten a student loan. I just barely made it into the upper 20% of Crete-Monee High School class of 1966. My ACT was only 24. Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My GPA and ACT would have been much higher if I had not washed dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights every evening Monday through Thursday during my junior and senior years and full-time during the summer in between. But if I had gotten a student loan, my GPA at UIC and at NIU would have been much higher and I would have majored in accounting instead of management. While I took classes at UIC 1966-1969 and at NIU 1969-1970, I worked as many hours as I possibly could for the Park Forest Post Office. Far too many times, I skipped classes on Mondays and on Fridays to work more hours.

UNITED STATE COAST GUARD
— How to spot and report retaliation – Arcady Darter (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older. My Democrat Post office superiors retaliated against me by disallowing my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forcing me to resign in 1969. My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated against me by a) disallowing my travel vouchers in 1974, b) forcing the IRS manager to transfer to Texas in 1975 who had promoted me to GS-9 in 1972, to GS-11 in 1973, and to GS-12 in 1974, c) not promoting me beyond GS-12, d) disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and e) getting GAO to offer me a transfer in 1980 only if I took a $21,863 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars. My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated against me by a) forcing me to take the aforesaid pay cut to transfer, b) giving me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13, d) not promoting me to GS-14, e) keeping me off audits of IRS except for 3 years 1986-1988, f) forcing the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer from IRS in 1980, assigned me to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, g) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and h) forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. Retaliation increased significantly after I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)
https://www.mycg.uscg.mil/News/Article/3271731/how-to-spot-and-report-retaliation/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Workplace retaliation can take many forms and it is important for employees to understand how to identify retaliation and the ways to report it. But how does one determine if an action is retaliatory? 3 Elements of retaliation  Retaliation occurs when an employer takes actions or negative behaviors against an employee for engaging in legally protected Equal Employment Opportunity/Equal Opportunity (EEO/EO) activity such as reporting discrimination and harassment or participating in an investigation of harassment. Let’s break down the components of retaliation: First, for an employee or applicant to file a complaint on the basis of retaliation, they must have engaged in a protected activity. This means that the employee asserted their rights by filing an EEO/EO complaint, being a witness to an EEO/EO complaint, or simply contacting the Civil Rights Directorate for information regarding the complaint process. Pointing out exclusionary hiring practices, resisting sexual advances, or intervening to protect others from harassment or discrimination are also examples of protected activities. The second element of a retaliation claim is that after engaging in a protected activity, the employee or applicant suffers an unfavorable action from their employer. For instance, adverse actions can include being fired, being passed over for a promotion, or receiving low-performance reviews after speaking out and engaging in a protected activity. The final element of a retaliation claim is that there is a connection and evidence that shows the adverse action was taken because of the protected activity. This means that the employees’ participation in protected activity motivated the employer’s adverse action or behaviors.)

Warren (COMMENT: While I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980, I increasingly engaged in protected activities. I increasingly objected to my Democrat superiors giving preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, their increasing discrimination against their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or older.

They ignored, dismissed, belittled, and badmouthed my earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://www.cpajournal.com/2023/01/25/toward-resolving-irs-staffing-shortages/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A total of 31,457 IRS employees completed the 2019 FEVS. Of those respondents, 38.5% were males and 61.5% were females; 67% were white; 21% were African American, and 12% were of other races. Nearly 15% were Millennials or Zoomers. Responses were weighted to provide a representative sample. These demographic characteristics were quite similar for IRS participants in the 2020 and 2021 FEVS.)

— Play by the rules (COMMENT: What shows that someone has played by the rules? They got an education, they got a job, and they saved for their retirement. My outstanding parents encouraged me to play by the rules. I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-1970) and three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-1976, DePaul-1980, and IIT-1997). I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. I became a licensed CPA in 1981. I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. I saved for my retirement.)

https://dailycaller.com/2023/01/27/gama-sosa-second-amendment-democrats-purpose/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Second Amendment is once again in the Democrats’ crosshairs amid mass shootings, with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s latest “assault weapons” ban, and now Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin claiming that the Founding Fathers would have supported banning certain guns. Democrats have made a lot of noise about banning “military-style” weapons and “weapons of war,” particularly the AR-15 platform – their favorite punching bag – in the name of stopping shootings mostly committed in the ghettos of Democrat-run cities such as Los Angeles, New Orleans, Detroit and most famously Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago. Obviously, this is a false proposition. Criminals don’t register guns or obey the law – they’re criminals. Armed civilians deter crime, whether with “military-style” weapons or a Taurus G3C Subcompact. Gun advocates have made this argument repeatedly. Unfortunately, it falls short and even helps justify bans like the Illinois one. If a subcompact with a five-round magazine is enough for self-defense, then it shouldn’t be a problem if Chicago, for instance, bans anything over 10 rounds, full autos and certain long guns. Because as Democrats argue, you don’t need an M4 to shoot a criminal or hunt. But history says there’s more to the Second Amendment. When the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it was a shock to the world of monarchs and tyrants who kept their populations in line by force and decree. Its protections make America unique. Virtually no country has anything close to it. It gave meaning to the idea of being a citizen of a nation instead of the subject of a despot.)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Ives: ‘I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick’
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/639074798-ives-i-stand-in-support-of-sheriff-mendrick
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Political organizer Jeanne Ives spoke in support of DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick who stands opposed to the implementation of the state’s recent gun ban. . .Ives, the CEO of Breakthrough Ideas, stands against the move by DuPage County Board Chair Deb Conroy and a delegation of like-minded fellow party members to criticize Mendrick and seek his removal. Ives, a former state representative and former gubernatorial and congressional candidate, was one of hundreds, many holding signs reading “We support Sheriff Mendrick” who packed into the DuPage County Board chambers in a January 24 meeting. “I stand in support of Sheriff Mendrick. He has done an outstanding job keeping our communities safe. He has also worked very hard in turning around the lives of those incarcerated in his jail,” Ives said. “When Sheriff Mendrick started heroin and criminality recidivism rates were 90% and 75% respectively and came down to 18 and 15% respectively. The chairwoman herself, just acknowledged that DuPage is one of the safest states in the country.” “It is remarkable, and hypocritical, of the chairman, and her Democrat state legislative colleagues and the Democrat Congressional delegation to politically assault Sheriff Mendrick for his thoughtful and reasonable position that HB5471 is unconstitutional. After Fridays decision by an IL judge to issue a TRO on the law, it is likely that the law IS unconstitutional.” “The DuPage chairman has herself passed numerous laws, that she probably thought were constitutional, but they aren’t.” “In 2013, she voted for pension reform, that in 2015 was judged unconstitutional.” “In 2017, she voted for SB31, a law requiring Illinois officials to not enforce federal immigration laws.” “For a decade, she voted for unbalanced budgets that are unconstitutional.” “And the chairman, along with her fellow legislators have passed numerous laws without the constitutionally required single subject for a bill or the requirement to read a bill on three separate days before passage.” “Those last two provisions were two of the reasons the judge issued a TRO on the law.” “The Chairman commented that ‘You do not get to choose which laws you comply with in the state of Illinois.’” “Five million illegal immigrants have crossed our border in the last two years and none of these people who insist that our laws be followed have said anything about that.” “If you think this is about keeping people safe, then you should know the chairwoman sponsored and voted for HB3447 which decriminalizes possession of enough fentanyl to kill 1500 people. She does not care about public safety.” “Everyone wants the violence to stop. But taking away the rights of legal gun owners while Cook County refuses to prosecute criminals with illegal guns is irrational.” “And it is telling that the law allows gun manufacturers in Illinois to continue to make and sell these now ‘banned’ guns for people in other states. SO, I guess it isn’t about the guns.” U.S. Rep. Sean Casten (D-IL) took to extreme language in his characterization of the decision by Mendrick and nearly 90% of the state’s sheriffs to not enforce the law saying the sheriff’s “actions are going to make future mass shootings more likely.” Mendrick answered Casten’s accusations in a statement. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation.” Casten was one of five other Democrats in Illinois’ congressional delegation who penned a letter against Mendrick.)

FOX32
— State Rep. Adam Niemerg said the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines is an attack on Second Amendment rights and an attempt to avoid the larger issue: lack of mental health support in Illinois. (COMMENT: Democrats have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that Republicans are mentally ill.)
https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/illinois-lawmaker-says-banning-assault-weapons-masks-larger-issue-mental-health
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A downstate Republican is joining area sheriffs in pushing back against Illinois’ new assault weapons ban. Sheriffs in Crawford, Jasper and Lawrence counties are among many law enforcement agencies that have refused to enforce the new law, claiming it is unconstitutional. . .”You’re talking about gun violence, and the solution is we are going to strip these folks in this room of their Second Amendment rights. We have some of the most stringent gun control laws in the nation but still, crime is out of control in the city of Chicago as I alluded to earlier, so if the Democrats want to come to me and talk about mental health, completely open to that,” said Niemerg. The Protect Illinois Communities Act is being challenged by several state and federal lawsuits, including at least one backed by the NRA.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The only time a tax collection issue becomes subjective is when it’s assigned to a revenue officer. This does not happen often. The IRS likes most tax collection issues handled quickly, which is why they prefer the ACS handling it. When a tax collection matter is pulled out of the ACS and assigned to a revenue officer, it becomes a person-to-person issue. When a taxpayer calls the ACS, the agent you speak to is the first available. When dealing with a revenue officer, you are dealing with a person assigned to the particulars of your case.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “DuPage County sheriff criticized for refusing to enforce new Illinois assault weapons ban.”
https://abc7chicago.com/illinois-assault-weapon-ban-2023-gun-laws-new-dupage-county-sheriff/12728795/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mendrick issued a statement Monday afternoon saying in part, “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County. In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes…” “In his estimation they’re asking him to go after legal gun owners and that’s where he has a problem with the law,” said former Republican state representative Jeanne Ives. Enforcement of the assault weapons ban is likely to get a lot of discussion during Tuesday morning’s DuPage County board meeting. Leaders on both sides are encouraging supporters to show up. Monday afternoon the state of Illinois filed an appeal to a judge’s ruling that put the assault weapons ban on hold for some parties. That temporary restraining order that came down Friday night and only applies to four federal firearm license dealers and 862 Illinois citizens who are signed plaintiffs in a downstate lawsuit against the law.)

https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/assault-weapons-ban-sparks-war-of-words-between-dupage-county-sheriff-and-lawmakers/3052479/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement released Monday afternoon, Mendrick struck back at the lawmakers saying, “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation.” “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” he added. A downstate Illinois judge on Friday granted a temporary restraining order in a case challenging the legality of the assault weapons ban, effectively halting enforcement of the law for the more than 800 plaintiffs. All but a handful of Illinois’ county sheriffs have said they won’t enforce the ban. Many of them did so by posting letters almost identical to Mendrick’s.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a lengthy statement released on Monday, Mendrick again criticized the new law as “poorly written” and for having “no clear direction on who will be enforcing new gun laws.” He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in the statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 13, Mendrick announced that due to his personal beliefs on the act, he would not enforce the law in DuPage County. He is one of many county sheriffs across Illinois to voice such a statement. Enforcement of the law is currently suspended due to a judge’s ruling on Friday in Effingham after multiple lawsuits were filed to overturn the ban. Mendrick released a statement in response to the Monday meeting, where he states he was ‘berated’ and ‘admonished’ but is pleased to hear the suspension of the law. He also questions officials’ goals in combating gun violence. Mendrick claims that he requested increasing penalties for gun crimes and stresses gun laws tied to criminal activity, making domestic violence a top priority for him. “This is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” Mendrick said. The DuPage County Board is meeting Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. and is inviting constituents to submit questions and statements they have in regard to the matter.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In an interview with the Chicago Tribune last week, Mendrick said he planned on staying out of the statewide outcry among other sheriffs about the new law but said the concerns he heard from his own deputies and regular citizens were too much to ignore. “The first couple of days, I was actually trying to call people back personally. But everyone would keep me on the phone for 30, 40 minutes apiece. Every citizen I talked to wanted to vent on all of this stuff,” said Mendrick. “The way the law was released scared society. I know it wasn’t the intent. But it did. It scared everybody who owns guns.” “Gun owners, lawful gun owners, this makes them feel that their rights are being infringed upon, that this is just the beginning,” said Mendrick. “How much further will it go after this?” He said he tries to “comply with everything I can” but believes the new law, as written, is incomplete. While the ban says that current owners of high-capacity magazines are required to register them with the Illinois State Police by April and high-powered weapons by Jan. 1, Mendrick is concerned over whether he’ll have the police resources to enforce the law. “If you’re expecting us to be the arm of this, how? Tell me where I get the people,” he said. . .In a follow-up statement after the news conference, Mendrick said the law is poorly written and has no clear direction as to who will be enforcing it. He said he was contacted by Casten on Jan. 16 about enforcing the law. “There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in the statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation.

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20230123/were-not-going-to-let-this-die-push-for-dupage-sheriff-to-retract-weapons-ban-statement-grows
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier this month, Mendrick issued a statement that said he believed the state’s new ban on high-powered guns and high-capacity magazines was unconstitutional. “Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for DuPage County, that neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the state, nor will we be arresting or housing law-abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with noncompliance of this Act,” Mendrick’s statement reads. . .”There is absolutely nothing that we are doing or not doing that would make a mass shooting more accessible in DuPage County,” Mendrick said in a written statement. “In fact, I have asked on multiple occasions to increase penalties on all existing gun crimes, but it does not appear that they want to have that conversation. “They seem more concerned with lawful gun owners than people illegally possessing guns,” he said. Mendrick, who had previously suggested he believed compliance checks would be tied to the law, also took note that lawmakers on Monday said they would not be asking officers to go door to door to ensure weapons were legally registered. “That is a big win for our law-abiding citizens and for law enforcement,” his statement read. . .In his statement Monday, Mendrick, a Republican, said it was “disheartening” to hear Stava-Murray suggest he would not enforce the law when he has said he would enforce the weapons ban when it involves other illegal activity. “When elected officials are blatantly untruthful, maybe they are the ones who should consider resignation,” Mendrick said. . .During a nearly hourlong interview over the weekend on AM-560’s “Black and Right” radio program, Mendrick was critical of the weapons ban, claiming sheriffs were not consulted in drafting the new law. Mendrick also questioned what happens after Jan. 1, 2024, the deadline for gun owners to register weapons. Though state lawmakers Monday said they would not seek door-to-door compliance checks, Mendrick said a Jan. 16 conversation with Casten suggested otherwise. The sheriff said Casten suggested that if police officers would go to the door of a home filled with Molotov cocktails, then Mendrick “should be fine going to the doors of people’s homes for the new gun laws.” “That reinforced my belief that we were going to be saddled with a manpower challenge that would be insurmountable, to say the least,” Mendrick said Monday. . .”If we go to doors to check for lawful gun owners, we won’t be available to answer 911 calls anymore,” Mendrick said during the radio program, adding that he would need to send three officers to a home to check for weapons. He also noted he is down 30 deputies and has gone from having 18 deputies on each shift to 11.)

Looks to Bolster Customer Service.” (COMMENT: During 1974, as a 25-year-old GS-11 (currently $76,990/year) Revenue Officer, I supervised all of the IRS employees, which included a rotating staff of about 90 Revenue Agent trainees, in IRS’s new downtown Chicago office who answered taxpayer questions using IRS’s new CentiPhone system. Because of my performance, IRS promoted me to GS-12 (currently $92,279/year). But then, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my travel vouchers (SEE: https://www.gao.gov/products/b-180010.11 ) and got rid of the IRS manager who had a) promoted me to GS-9 (currently $63,633) in 1972, b) promoted me to GS-11 in 1973, c) got me the CentiPhone Manager assignment, and d) promoted me to GS-12 in 1974.)

Democrats want everyone to do the aforesaid destructive things because they increase the likelihood that you will become a “ward of the state,” that is, that you will vote for Democrats.
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20230122/letter-why-not-insure-guns-tie-owners-to-them
(FROM THE LETTER: Some argue cars can kill people, so why not ban cars, too? Better yet, let’s flip the logic and treat guns the same way we treat cars. How? Mandatory insurance. Once you or lease a gun, you must buy qualified firearm insurance. Premium rates increase with each shooting incident (accidental or intentional) just as with car accidents.)

They were farmers in Crete and in Grant Park along the Indiana border. They raised and sold horses in Crete. The operated a hardware store in Crete.

NEWSMAX
— Ready for Your Very Own Backseat Driver? — Big Brother – Michael Reagan with Michael R. Shannon (COMMENT: I wonder what positions my fellow Iron Gate Motor Condo owners have on this. Of course, I am concerned about this because I have owned gasoline-powered cars since 1964 and currently own seven gasoline-powered cars and a gasoline-powered SUV. But, on the other hand, I drive them extremely few miles because I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. And further, because I am no longer a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman or an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member, I no longer drive to TAPROOT or ICRC meetings and events. SEE: https://www.irongatemotorcondos.com/ and https://www.igmca.com/home/ )
https://www.newsmax.com/reagan/app-hybrid-premium/2023/01/21/id/1105348/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are insured drivers in the United States — mostly citizens since illegals bypass this sort of nuisance — who participate in an insurance company program. It installs an app on your phone that we call “Mobile Mother-in-Law.” You install the app and it monitors where you drive, when you drive, and how fast you drive. It may even cross-reference the data with the weather. We aren’t sure. What we are sure of is the insurance company analyzes the data and if you obey the speed limit and don’t park in the passing lane on the highway, the insurance company will give you a discount on your premium. (We made the part up about the passing lane, but you get the idea.) If you use the app and succumb to lead-foot disease, not only will you not get an insurance discount, you may suffer an auto insurance increase! Car owners who opt into this app program do so voluntarily with the expectation that their participation will save them money. Now the government wants to get in the app business in the near future and, since it’s the government, the program will be mandatory — and it will cost you money. The Epoch Times brings us the bad news. Government regulations that increased gas mileage and government subsidies that encouraged the purchase of electric and hybrid vehicles have resulted in less revenue for state and federal government highway funds, because those funds are financed by the gas tax. Electric vehicles don’t buy gas, hybrids only buy a little and regular cars get more distance from a tank of gas these days. As a spokesman for the Eastern Transportation Coalition explains, “All vehicles are going farther on less gas, and that is great for our wallets, especially with the gas prices going up. “But it’s not so good when our transportation system is dependent on that fuel tax. The link between usage and payment is broken.” Naturally, government is springing into action. Currently 31 states charge electric vehicles a special, more expensive registration fee. But that once-a-year payment isn’t enough for government bureaucrats. You know them all-too-well. The same people who made you mask-up (even outside!) want to make you install an app to monitor your driving. We call it Big Brother in the Backseat, and it’s bad news. Drivers are less than enthusiastic about this prospect and bureaucrats and NGO nannies can’t fathom why. The Coalition person had the gall to say, “This is a very challenging topic to talk about because nobody likes talking about paying for transportation. We all like the transportation that we use but paying for it is a hard conversation.” We don’t know about you, but our cars cost thousands of dollars and we paid it. What the government is demanding is we pay extra for transportation. Drivers who are paying attention are also very concerned about their privacy and government intrusion into it. It’s one thing to volunteer for an insurance app and gain a discount in return. It’s quite another to be forced to install an app or a tracking device and have a cyber mother-in-law riding shotgun as Big Brother. The comically out-of-touch Coalition flack has a positive spin for that situation, too: “Developers expect a third party, not the government, will keep track of where drivers go, and how much they owe, and some studies have indicated that because a third party is doing the tracking, the data is safe from government eyes. “The data would go to a government contractor that would deduct the amount owed from a user’s credit card and pay it to the states where the vehicle had been.” Would that be the same government that forced “third party” cellphone providers to give tracking data belonging to the Jan. 6 political prisoners to the DOJ without a warrant? We’re supposed to believe our travel data would be safe “from those government eyes”? There are other ways to charge for highway usage without taking a giant step into the Total Surveillance State. If the IRS grants a mileage deduction based on mileage entered on a tax form, then the states can use the same data for its usage tax.)

— COMMENT: Democrats say “Where Biden’s racial justice agenda stands.” Ever-increasingly, Democrats a) blame Republicans for all the problems that minorities have had, are having, and will have and b) encourage minorities to hate Republicans.

— COMMENT: Democrats said in 2017 “America’s rifle: Why so many people love the AR-15.”
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/america-s-rifle-why-so-many-people-love-ar-15-n831171
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are a lot of reasons people love their AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, and it doesn’t much matter to them what the haters say. For some, the gun is a tool, a finely tuned machine that can cut down an animal or intruder, or pierce a distant target, with a single precise shot. For others, it is a toy, a sleek beast of black plastic and metal that delivers a gratifying blast of adrenaline. And for many, it is a symbol, the embodiment of core American values — freedom, might, self-reliance. . .It is the focus of multiple attempts at prohibition, which in turn has prompted people to run out and buy more. Such “panic buying” drove sales of AR-15s to record levels during the presidency of Barack Obama and the 2016 presidential campaign. . .Devotees say the AR-15 has been wrongly demonized, arguing that the vast majority of owners never use it in a crime, and that despite the rifle’s use in mass shootings, it is responsible for a very small proportion of the country’s gun violence. Thanks to that ardent following, and shrewd marketing, the AR-15 remains a jewel of the gun industry, the country’s most popular rifle, irreversibly lodged into American culture. . .The civilian model wasn’t mass produced until the 1980s, after the original patent expired and a variety of companies began making them. That transformed a specific brand to a more generic offering on which a mini-industry would flourish. When the AR-15 and other semiautomatic rifles began to turn up in shootings, a movement began to restrict their manufacture and sale. Much of the outrage stemmed from the militaristic appearance of those guns, and their ability to fire rapidly.)
