(COMMENT: Since 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have blamed me big time and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters big time for losses that Republican gubernatorial candidates have suffered. I should write a book about the following Republican gubernatorial primaries: 2002 (Jim Ryan, Pat O’Malley, Corrine Wood); 2006 (Judy Baar Topinka, Jim Oberweis, Bill Brady, Ron Gidwitz, Andy Martin); 2010 (Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard, Andy McKenna, Jim Ryan, Adam Andrzejewski, Dan Proft, and Bob Schillerstrom); 2014 (Bruce Rauner, Kirk Dillard, Bill Brady, Dan Rutherford); 2018 (Bruce Rauner, Jeanne Ives); and 2022 (Darren Bailey, Richard Irvin, Gary Rabine, Paul Schimpf, Jesse Sullivan). I would focus on my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most a) for Jim Ryan losing in 2002 and 2010, b) for Judy Baar Topinka losing in 2006, c) for Bill Brady losing in 2006 and 2010, and d) for Bruce Rauner losing in 2018. I would focus on their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen was among the first to file at the county clerk’s office Monday as he turned in paperwork to run for county treasurer. Democrat Jeffrey Pripusich also filed for treasurer. Lauzen, who served as county board chairman for eight years, said he wanted to be a “spending watchdog” for the county’s money. He pointed to several county expenditures he considered wasteful, including employing a lobbyist and the recent hiring of a public information officer. “If somebody is not satisfied with what’s going on in any level of government, rather than complain about it, do something about it,” said Lauzen, an accountant who also served in the Illinois Senate for 20 years.)

NAPERVILLE NEW 17
— DuPage County Divided Over Drawing of County Election Precinct Maps
(COMMENT: Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs redraw precincts to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me. For the second time now, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs have drawn me in to the same DuPage County Milton Precinct 9 in Wheaton with Jeanne Ives.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/top-stories/dupage-county-divided-over-drawing-of-county-election-precinct-maps/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County voters could find they are grouped into fewer, larger precincts come the next election. Why Now? A new piece of legislation signed into law in November 2021 and discussed Tuesday at the county finance committee meeting reduces the number of DuPage County election precincts from 930 to 607. The current draft of the redrawn maps leaves fewer committeemen to serve as the voice of the voters, thereby impacting whether a party may be elected. What’s At Issue? Board member Amy Chavez said some precinct committee members and township officials have reached out to her, asking for changes to the proposed election precinct maps. “I think there is a lot of concern over these new lines,” Chavez said. Board member Sam Tornatore said something has to give. “It’s essentially a political attempt to change boundaries within precincts,” Tornatore said. The new state legislation comes on the heels of the county board agreeing on a new DuPage County redistricting map in a bipartisan effort in October 2021. Deputy County Clerk Adam Johnson said he stands by the election precinct maps put together by county clerk’s office staff. “It’s unavoidable that there’s going to be some people who are not happy with the way the maps turn out,” Johnson said. “Certainly, we’re open to constructive criticism on how that process could have been better massaged.” Board member Jim Zay said he would not support the precinct maps as proposed given the lack of time allotted for input. “We have a job to do,” Zay said. “This is not putting us in the best position to do our job.” Johnson tried to address concerns about the county clerk’s office getting input on the precinct maps. “While there hasn’t been a lot of time for as many outside parties to review the maps, from the feedback I have received, I haven’t heard much in the way of actual substantive complaints of how the maps were drawn in terms of meeting the state legislature’s requirements,” Johnson said. Tornatore said he doesn’t want to place blame on the county clerk’s office, but he believes taxpayer money may have been wasted. “I don’t know that the election division contemplated this legislation coming from Springfield,” Tornatore said. “I know it’s been kind of on the back burner. … Perhaps we should have taken it into consideration before we ordered as many printers as we did. But I’m going to presume that we have a printer for every precinct that if we now have 300-plus fewer precincts, we either should get a rebate for the money we spent or we’re going to have a lot of printers being stored that aren’t being used.” The county board authorized the purchase of new voting equipment valued at roughly $7.2 million in October 2021. That contract as awarded includes funding to pay for printers, among other things. The county has been in the process of matching polling places with election precincts to determine which ones will be combined into a single location. Officials anticipate a reduction in the number of polling places, but they believe the amount of new printers purchased will remain appropriate for the layout of available voting locations. Moving Forward. County board members acknowledge they don’t have a lot of time to spare. The election precinct maps need to be adopted no later than Friday. A special county board meeting on this topic is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.)

— AUGUST 4, 1997 FLASHBACK: DEPRESSION-ERA PROJECT HAUNTS CONSOLIDATION EFFORT – Bob Merrifield
(COMMENT: When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1997-08-04-9708040150-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Walt Williams, president of the Lincolnshire Country Club, sees the subdivision that never was as a historical relic. “At the time, a four-golf-course complex was planned,” Williams said. “Three of the four got built. Two are still in existence. “They were trying to make it into a resort community. I believe the Depression ended all that.” Esther Diersen of Crete, who owns one of the 40-foot lots, said she believes most owners have held on to the land for sentimental reasons or because it may eventually increase in value. Her lot was bought in the 1920s by an aunt of her late husband. “When Lincolnshire Country Club first started, everyone bought a small lot like that. For some reason I kept thinking it might be something the kids could realize something from. That’s the only reason I still have it.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220105/it-has-no-place-how-a-mundelein-area-woman-is-deleting-a-painful-relic-of-race-and-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For 40 years beginning in the late 1920s, it was not uncommon for restrictive covenant clauses to prohibit the sale or lease of property to certain racial or ethnic groups. That practice became illegal and unenforceable with the passage of the federal Housing Rights Act in 1968. But the offensive language has remained. Many property owners are unaware of such references in covenants associated with their property. And those who are have found it difficult to have them deleted.)

— 84% of Voters: Public Schools Should Teach Truth About Slavery – Scott Rasmussen
(COMMENT: According to this article, “42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy.” What percent of your school board members agree that schools should teach that “America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy?” What are the following doing to fight CRT, 1619, reparations, BLM, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination: a) Republican members of your school board, b) the leaders your Republican township/ward/county party organizations, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, d) the IRP leaders, e) Republican leaders of your chamber of commerce, park district, municipality, township, and county, f) your Republican state representative and state senator, g) etc.?)
https://www.newsmax.com/scottrasmussen/public-schools-slavery-founding/2022/01/06/id/1051337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters believe public schools should teach the truth about slavery. At the same time, a Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 81% believe public schools should teach that America was founded on the ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. Combining the results shows that 72% of voters believe both should be taught. Another question found that 42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy. Forty-four percent (44%) disagree. Overall, 40% believe students should be taught that America was founded on noble ideals, but not that the nation was founded on racism. Thirty percent (30%) believe both should be taught. Eleven percent (11%) say that the noble ideals should be taught and are not sure about racism. Nine percent (9%) believe schools should teach that the nation was founded on racism but not that it was founded upon noble ideals. Finally, 64% believe that schools should teach that America is a force for good in the world. Fifteen percent (15%) disagree and 21% are not sure. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of those who support Trump-like policies believe that students should be taught that America is a force for good. So do 73% of traditional Democrats and 70% of traditional Republicans. However, among those who support policies like those of Senator Bernie Sanders, just 42% think students should learn that America is a force for good. Thirty percent (30%) of Sanders’ supporters say that positive message should not be taught while 28% are not sure. Given a choice between four presidential candidates with equal skills and temperament, 31% would prefer a Republican who supported policies like those of President Trump. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% would prefer a Democrat who supported policies similar to Senator Bernie Sanders, 19% favor a more traditional Democrat, and 17% a more traditional Republican.)

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

(COMMENT: In 1978, Money Magazine published a 4-page article about my wife and I.

The article hints/implies/argues/shouts that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I took at DePaul 1976-1980 a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” and e) were a distraction. Money Magazine and IRS would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

— Group Aiming to Hire 1 Million Black Workers Created 21,000 Jobs This Year. The OneTen coalition says it has a plan to ramp up to reach its goal by 2030. – Jeff Green
(COMMENT: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, Black, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, Black, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, Black, female, or veteran who would take the job. In 1971, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. GAO forced me to retire in 1997 so that it could and did give my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate.)

HR MORNING
— Hit with a bias claim? Here’s what you need to beat it. – Tom D’Agostino
(COMMENT: I should write a book about pretext. Because it is illegal to discriminate because of race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, and/or political affiliation if you are a government employee, etc., those who discriminate use pretexts. Most commonly, discriminators foist negative stereotypes of your demographics upon you. If you are White, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Whites and you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, racist, etc. If you are male, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against women and you are a sexist. If you are older, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against younger people. If you are heterosexual, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against LGBTQers and you are a bigot. If you are Protestant, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Protestants. If you are German American, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-German Americans. If you are Republican, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Republicans. I would focus on pretexural discriminators who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. According to Pluralism ( https://pluralism.org/stereotypes-and-prejudice ), Protestants are anti-Catholic and anti-Semite. According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypes_of_Germans ), negative German stereotypes include being Nazis and not having a sense of humor. According to Babbel ( https://www.babbel.com/en/magazine/false-german-stereotypes ), negative German stereotypes include being unfriendly and loving cars.)
https://www.hrmorning.com/news/hostile-environment-2/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s common sense, really: Employers accused of taking action against an employee for an illegal reason must be prepared to say what the real reason was – and that it was perfectly legitimate. In a typical case, articulating a nondiscriminatory reason volleys the burden to the plaintiff to show that the proffered reason is not real but instead is just a pretext for unlawful bias. And if the plaintiff can’t show pretext, the case usually ends.)
