POLITICO ILLINOIS
— GOP UNITY: The Illinois Republican Party is holding its state convention today and Saturday in the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. After eight years of divisiveness among the rank and file, party leaders hope to emerge united as they head into election season. No matter where they stand on Donald Trump, they agree on wanting to make Joe Biden a one-term president. “We’re at a pivotal point where you’re seeing Republicans starting to get back together,” Illinois GOP Executive Director Matthew Janes told Playbook. “You’re seeing a lot more unity recently.” The Illinois GOP has evolved much the way the national Republican party has, with right-leaning Republicans veering more right and centrists somehow being seen as being left on party issues. In Illinois, the shift has been geographic. In 2014, the Republican base was strong in Chicago’s suburbs and exurbs, while southern Illinois still saw Democrats have an influence in party politics. That’s all shifted: When Trump came on the scene, rural voters were drawn to his blue collar message and there was a shift in the state party’s cultural and economic bases. Chicago-area Republicans weren’t always in line with Trump. And many still aren’t. Embracing Trump: Illinois GOP National Committeeman Richard Porter was among those hoping to see a new Republican generation in the White House. He backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president. Now, he says he’s most concerned about taking back the White House from Democrats. “I am for winning. Trump is our nominee and the Democrats have behaved appallingly in regard to Trump so it’s not hard to support him,” Porter told Playbook, referring to the former president’s recent court fight in New York. That attitude is expected to prevail in Collinsville this weekend, where the biggest task is to line up behind a party platform and elect a new Republican committee man and committee woman to represent the state within the national Republican Convention (The party elects one man and one woman to those seats.). Why the change: Term limits are keeping Porter and Committeewoman Demetra DeMonte from running again. They have each served two terms. In the running for their seats: GOP state central committee members Mark Shaw and Dean White and Illinois Republican Finance Committee Chair Vince Kolber. Shaw is also an Illinois adviser to Trump’s campaign. Women candidates are State Central Committee members Joan Lasonde and Rhonda Belford, and former Republican legislative candidate Julie Cho. All of the candidates are right-leaning, Trump-supporting Republicans. If you are Demetra DeMonte, Playbook would like to hear from you. Email skapos@politico.com )

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Trump putting his finger on the scale to revamp GOP platform four years after it froze in time – Elaine Mallon (COMMENT: Those who oppose direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a far-right conservative. Since 2015, they have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a Trump-promoter. I should write a book about those who oppose direct elect election of IRP SCC members and who oppose Trump and who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/presidential/3015947/trump-revamp-gop-platform-after-it-froze-in-time/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump campaign is pushing to elect those closely aligned with the presumptive presidential nominee’s agenda to positions on the Republican National Committee‘s Platform Committee. Much of this effort by former President Donald Trump’s campaign relates to concerns that far-right conservatives will push stances on abortion and same-sex marriage that may alienate the general population just ahead of the general election. The RNC’s Platform Committee consists of a male and a female representative from each U.S. state and territory, and it will play an instrumental role in shaping the party’s stances on dozens of policy issues. The party’s current platform is a 66-page document that hasn’t been reviewed since the 2016 election. In 2020, the RNC passed a resolution stating it would not adopt a new platform, pointing to the COVID-19 pandemic interfering with the party’s ability to hold meetings. That year marked the first time in more than 150 years that the RNC decided not to make adjustments to its official platform, per NBC News. Shiree Verdone served as co-chairwoman of Trump’s campaign in Arizona in both 2016 and 2020 but is no longer involved with the Republican Party of Arizona. She told the outlet that Trump’s team is concerned about who is getting on the party’s platform committee. “Trying to get normal folks on the Platform and Rules [committees], but God knows if there’s any normal people in that delegation,” Verdone said. The committee’s leadership consists of strong Trump supporters, including Trump’s former ambassador to Luxembourg, Randy Evans, who will serve as executive director. Russ Vought, Trump’s former director of the Office of Management and Budget, will serve as policy director, and Ed Martin, the head of several conservative groups, will serve as deputy policy director. “The campaign is really getting into it and involved this year in [Platform Committee] races in states,” a veteran Republican operative told the outlet. “There is a sense among them that the platform should not be pushed too far to the right on a few issues, but I keep hearing abortion and marriage specifically.” While far-right conservatives have called for a national ban on abortion, Trump has been steadfast in his stance that the matter will be left up to the states. “I DO NOT SUPPORT A BAN ON BIRTH CONTROL, AND NEITHER WILL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!” Trump declared on Truth Social.)

There is ever-increasing pressure to remove me from the 2024 Illinois Republican State Convention Party Platform and Resolutions Committee because I am the GOPUSA Illinois Editor. They do not want me to be an “insider.” They want to impose big restrictions on me. Any “leak” of committee information would be blamed on me. How should I react to that?

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— MAY 20, 2016 FLASHBACK: Illinois Republicans divided on same-sex marriage, abortion at party convention – RICK PEARSON (COMMENT: Needless-to-say, I will sue anyone who has hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I provided Pearson with any information let alone “inside” information for this article.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2016/05/20/illinois-republicans-divided-on-same-sex-marriage-abortion-at-party-convention/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tensions were on display between social moderates and conservatives Friday as the state GOP convention opened and Republicans sought to assemble a new platform. Along a hallway at the Peoria Civic Center, a vendor sold hats, shirts, buttons and signs featuring the phrase “Make America Great Again,” along with images of the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, real estate baron and former reality TV star Donald Trump. Inside a cramped meeting hall, however, tensions were on display between social moderates and conservatives over same-sex marriage and abortion as they sought to put together a new platform. The two issues, long contentious in an internally divided state GOP, were at the forefront Friday at the opening of the Illinois Republicans’ every-four-years state convention, a prelude to the Republican National Convention in July. For the Illinois GOP, the November election presents a chance to build on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s 2014 victory, upend Democratic majorities in the legislature and re-elect U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk for a second term. Kirk, facing a difficult election fight against Democratic Rep. Tammy Duckworth, has supported same-sex marriage. But as the state GOP’s platform committee sought to remove previous language defining marriage as between one man and one woman, committee members were heavily lobbied by social conservatives and members of the state’s Republican congressional delegation, including U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton. Following nearly three hours of discussion, the committee voted 10-7 with one abstention on new language that also recognizes “non-traditional families are worthy of the same respect and legal protections as traditional families.” But the committee’s approval does not avoid the prospect of a floor fight when it is presented to the full state convention Saturday. Conservative family advocates already were promising major opposition. Pat Brady, former state GOP chairman and a member of the panel, said it was time for the party to move beyond the issue after state laws and a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriage. “It’s a reflection of the committee of the reality of being too strident in not recognizing marriage beyond those with a man and a woman. And it’s an effort to appeal to younger people,” said Brady, whose support for same-sex marriage helped lead to an early end of his tenure as head of the state’s Republicans. Earlier in the day, conservatives on the platform committee pushed back against an effort to make the party’s plank against abortion more inclusive, rejecting language recognizing that some support the procedure in “limited circumstances.” “Why can’t we be more receptive to those who agree with most of our core principles?” asked Ryan Higgins, a platform committee member representing the northwest and west suburban 8th Congressional District. “It’s a beacon,” he said of the inclusive language. “C’mon over, we want you.” But Dave Carrabotta, a committee member from the north suburban 9th Congressional District, countered that language calling abortion allowable in certain, even unspecific circumstances (such as when rape, incest or the life or health of the mother is involved) would open the door to wider exceptions. “You give an eighth of an inch,” Carrabotta said, “the game is over.” Jan Klaas, a panel member from northwestern Illinois’ 16th District, argued against the language, saying the party’s duty wasn’t to attract votes but to do what was “right” by strongly opposing abortion. With the inclusive language deleted, the committee recommended restating a call for the Supreme Court’s landmark abortion-rights ruling Roe v. Wade be overturned, as well as provisions requiring hospital surgical standards at abortion clinics, which has been used in other states to limit availability of the procedure. Other parts of the proposed platform included provisions backing changes in workers’ compensation, civil liability damage award limits, term limits and making the drawing of legislative districts less political — all part of Rauner’s legislative agenda, which Democratic lawmakers have opposed during a stalemate that’s kept the state without a full budget for nearly 11 months. The proposed platform also presses the Democratic-led General Assembly to approve a “true balanced budget every year” and said its failure to do so jeopardizes the education of the state’s children. Beyond that, the platform includes calls for elected and appointed public officials to serve “honestly, ethically and with integrity,” urges passage of a voter identification law, and opposes Democratic efforts to enact a graduated-rate state income tax to replace Illinois’ current flat tax. Another committee, meanwhile, recommended a slate of 12 at-large delegates to join state Chairman Tim Schneider and the state’s two Republican National Committee members as delegates to the national nominating convention in Cleveland. Among the delegates selected was Todd Ricketts, of the family that owns the Chicago Cubs. If approved at the state convention on Saturday, Ricketts would be pledged to vote for Trump on a first ballot even though he was a major player in Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump super political action committee. Ricketts was an early backer of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s unsuccessful White House bid.)

— MAY 21, 2016 FLASHBACK: Illinois Republican Party takes stance on marriage – Chris Kaergard (COMMENT: Needless-to-say, I will sue anyone who has hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I provided Kaergard with any information let alone “inside” information for this article.)
https://www.sj-r.com/story/news/state/2016/05/21/illinois-republican-party-takes-stance/29174372007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: PEORIA — Illinois Republicans will remain the party of “marriage between one man and one woman.” Meeting in Peoria, delegates to the state GOP convention voted overwhelmingly to retain a plank in their platform of guiding principles calling for that stance instead of a proposed change that touted the benefits of the traditional, nuclear family and First Amendment religious freedoms while declaring that diverse opinions were welcomed and “that non-traditional families are worthy of the same respect and legal protections as traditional families.” Though that proposed language change cleared the party’s platform committee 11-7 after a lengthy meeting Friday, opponents successfully sought a floor debate and vote on an issue by the full contingent of delegates at what was billed as the highest-attendance GOP convention in state history with 968 credentialed attendees. Supporters of the traditional-marriage status quo position argued their position represented a consensus of the party at its last convention in 2012, but also insisted that enshrining that position was critical to the party’s success at the ballot box. “Our platform distinguishes ourselves from the Democrats,” state Rep. Terri Bryant, R-Murphysboro, said in arguing that downstate members of the GOP needed such language to compete against the conservative Democrats they often face in elections. “We have to hold those seats and we have to pick up seats.” State Rep. Peter Breen, R-Lombard, also told the audience that there was little support among rank-and-file Republicans for adjusting the language in the platform. “There’s no groundswell out there amongst Republicans to change the definition of marriage,” he said. “It’s a core Republican principle across the country.” Party chairman Tim Schneider had to twice call for calm and a respectful exchange of ideas as proponents of newer language were interrupted by jeers, boos and shouts of, “Go home!” however. But Ryan Higgins, the state’s central committeeman from the suburban 8th Congressional District, said that rejecting the proposed newer language also gutted the most requested addition to the platform, which would have emphasized the need for protections for religious liberty, and said that the recommended alterations were being misinterpreted. Elisha French of Galesburg agreed, noting that the issues in the debate over marriage have changed since 2012. He told the convention that, “The (battle) line has been moved while we have been talking.” Demetra DeMonte, the longtime Tazewell County GOP volunteer who was re-elected as one of two Illinois representatives to the Republican National Committee, applauded the final result. “I was very happy to vote for the amendment,” she said. “I thought it was necessary, and I’m pleased that it won overwhelming and is now part of our party platform.” The process the proposals for a marriage plank went through satisfied Mike Bigger, the Stark County resident who chaired the platform committee and serves as the state party’s secretary. “I thought (with) an issue that was that divisive, it was critical that it come to the floor and let the delegates actually vote,” he said. “I’ve never at a convention before seen that happen. The majority spoke and it was clear and resounding. We passed the right platform — the platform the party wanted — and I’m totally happy with it.” Schneider and a host of others throughout the afternoon in the Peoria Civic Center ballroom urged the crowd to unify behind GOP candidates in the fall — regardless of any intra-party disagreements — for the betterment of the party. “United, the possible is possible. Divided, the possible is impossible,” Schneider said. Other speakers during the convention’s general assembly portion for all delegates included Gov. Bruce Rauner, state Comptroller Leslie Munger and U.S. Reps. Darin LaHood, R-Peoria, and Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, though all stuck to familiar themes they’ve invoked at other public appearances, often word for word. Many early speakers avoided referencing GOP presidential nominee-in-waiting Donald Trump by name, until DeMonte predicted his victory in the fall and drew cheers, chants and waving signs from some members of the crowd.)

Phil Lyman soundly beat Gov.

There is ever-increasing pressure to remove me from the 2024 Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee because I am the GOPUSA Illinois Editor. They do not want me to be an “insider.” They want to impose big restrictions on me. Any “leak” of committee information would be blamed on me. How should I react to that?

I did that for 2 years and then traded that condo into the building’s developer for a one bedroom condo and walked to/from work and graduate evening accounting courses at DePaul. I did that for 2 years and then got married, sold that one bedroom condo and bought a home in Wheaton with my wife.)

— All my female GAO superiors were Democrat, liberal, feminist, Jewish, and younger than me. They all took many adverse actions against me. All during the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, at least 1 of my 3 Chicago office superiors was Jewish. During my last 8 years there, 2 of those 3 were Democrat, liberal, feminist, Jewish, and younger than me. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They ignored/dismissed/belittled my earning a) job-related professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997 and b) a job-related master’s degree in 1997. They succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. It is called political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, religious discrimination, and national origin discrimination.

Almost $600,000 has been raised on the three races just since Jan. 1, and more contributions and expenditures are being reported nearly every day, and likely will be until the March 19 primary. – Tom Kacich (COMMENT: Since 2000, in Republican primaries on ballots in my precinct, my critics/opponents have always opposed conservative candidates.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/03/california_to_help_undocumented_immigrants_purchase_homes.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: California Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula has introduced Assembly Bill 1840, aimed at expanding home ownership opportunities for “undocumented immigrants” in the state. The bill would make illegal aliens eligible for first time homebuyer loans. The bill, as originally introduced earlier this year, was aimed at low- and middle-income citizens, but Arambula apparently decided that was too exclusive, and therefore recently proposed his updated version. This is yet another kick in the shorts to citizens, especially since the formerly Golden State has the highest priced housing — and by far the most homeless people — in the nation. California is already the only state to fund comprehensive health care for undocumented immigrants.)

https://dailycaller.com/2024/03/09/naked-man-lgbtq-flag-casually-strolls-down-street-seattle-washington/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A naked man waved a rainbow flag while strolling through vehicular traffic on a street in Seattle, Washington, a video showed. The unidentified man appeared oblivious of his immediate environment as he blithely strolled through traffic, with cars appearing to wait for or make their way past him, according to the video, shared Saturday on Twitter by radio host Jason Rantz of KTTH Radio under the caption, “Seattle is thriving.” The incident appeared to have occurred in the Ravenna neighborhood of Seattle, according to another video by the journalist Andy Ngo. The video showed what seemed to be the same man draped in the flag and lying down spreadeagled in the middle of the road, obstructing vehicular traffic. “And this why here is why my child won’t step foot in this city! It used to be a fun place to go down and explore but it’s no longer a safe place for families,” a user reacted to the video. “Exposing the little things in Seattle,” replied another. “So many beautiful cities in our great country have been destroyed… Very sad,” another said. Another wondered why laws against indecent exposure were not enforced. A user seemed to imply that the person was experiencing a mental health crisis. It is not known whether the individual was homeless or unsheltered. First-time homelessness spiked across the country between 2021 and 2022 by 25%, according to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). By 2023, a record 653,100-odd persons “were experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2023 – a 12% increase (or about 70,650 more people) from 2022,” the HUD stated. Washington was one of the five states with the largest increases in homelessness, according to HUD data. A posse of naked men cycled through some of Seattle‘s streets as part of Seattle’s LGBTQ+ Pride Parade in full view of children last June, according to several reports. The “all ages” parade to “Challenge Body Shame/Build Self Esteem” and create “Pride for Every Body” drew criticism as it crossed a line for some, according to the Washington Times. “[T]he role of the Seattle Police Department [SPD] at this particular event was to assure the safety and security of the overall event – not to regulate activities that are better left to parade organizers and the permit process,” the SPD reportedly said in a statement regarding the event to the fact-checking website, Snopes.)

ASSOCIATED PRESS
— Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly hint/imply/argue/shout that if minorities and/or females are underrepresented in certain jobs, it is because Whites and/or men discriminate against them. But what about bad jobs? Minorities and/or females were underrepresented in all the jobs that I had because all the jobs that I had were bad jobs. Few if any minorities and females want to do yard work, deliver newspapers, wash dishes, clean golf shoes, chip slag, pump gasoline, deliver mail, work on an automobile assembly line, sell tires, automotive services, and major appliances, pump more gasoline, collect delinquent taxes, or audit federal agencies. It was extremely difficult for my employers to recruit and retain qualified minorities and females for the bad jobs that I had because with Affirmative Action and DEI, the minorities and females they wanted to hire, retain, and promote got better jobs elsewhere. Consequently, my employers gave the minorities and females who they were able to hire and retain tremendous preference over me.

— The ‘Harvard of Christian schools’ slams Fox News op/ed calling the college ‘woke’ Wheaton College is calling out a Fox News opinion piece by freelancer Tim Scheiderer, saying ‘it failed to meet minimal standards for journalistic accuracy.’ – Amaris Encinas
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2024/02/01/wheaton-college-fox-news-opinion-woke/72370641007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A college known as the “Harvard of Christian schools” is clapping back at a Fox News opinion piece that claims the school has gone “woke” just like Harvard University. Wheaton College, a private Christian liberal arts school just outside Chicago, issued a statement Wednesday addressing the Fox News article, saying that they “remain committed to Christian service” and that the “claims made about the college are false or misleading.” Freelance writer Tim Scheiderer, who penned the Fox News op/ed, says that the school has begun to “mimic Harvard’s wokeness” by “banning biblical words, teaching critical race theory, and psychologizing gender identity issues.” “In the 19th century, Harvard was slowly, and permanently, transformed from a Christian university into a secular one,” Scheiderer writes. “At Wheaton, the biblical belief in only two sexes is being tainted. With this and the other shifts mentioned, it may seem like a slow drift. But a gentle tide can carry a boat far from its dock.” Wheaton College President Philip Ryken slammed the “incendiary” opinion piece, saying in a statement that it “failed to meet minimal standards for journalistic accuracy.” Here’s what we know. Who is Tim Scheiderer? Scheiderer, the author of the article, has no apparent affiliation with Wheaton College. He graduated from Bob Jones University, a private evangelical university in Greenville, South Carolina, with a B.A. in mass communications and media studies in 1999. He also has a “Master of Divinity” from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, according to his LinkedIn page. Scheiderer’s resumé also lists him as a founding board member of The Augustine Fellowship, a Christian Study Center at Georgetown University. He says on his website that he earned his “writing chops” working for ABC, Fox News and CNN. What else does the Fox News article say? Scheiderer writes that Wheaton College has slowly drifted away from traditional Christian values since the 2000s when the education department “commended the teachings of Marxists.” The college’s most “blatant offense against Christianity is the ban of certain biblical words that are key to the faith’s foundation,” stating that students have been discouraged from using words like “service” and “mankind.” He also calls out an endowed chair in Wheaton’s psychology program for expressing views on gender identity that Scheiderer says are “rooted in an anti-God philosophy.” Scheiderer concludes the article by asking: “Would Billy Graham, the most influential 20th-century evangelical, endorse his alma mater? How has Wheaton College responded? In his statement, Wheaton College’s president discouraged community members from “engaging further” with Scheiderer. The article, which Ryken says appeared to have been “cobbled from out-of-context items found on the Internet” is mischaracterizing since the author “does not name any sources or give any citations for his many contentions.” Ryken said that Scheiderer had reached out to the college’s marketing department a month ago, claiming that he was writing an article for the Wall Street Journal on a tight deadline. When the spokesperson questioned Scheiderer’s credentials, he told them that he was “actually a freelance writer attempting to pitch an idea to the Journal’s opinion section.” “A representative from the WSJ confirmed that Scheiderer was not an employee. Although the WSJ did not run his piece, evidently he was able to have it appear on a FOX News page,” Ryker noted. “Wheaton College remains fully committed to Christian service − which we embrace as ‘service’ in our very mission statement − to biblical orthodoxy and Christ-centered education, including in matters of human sexuality, gender identity, and race relations,” Ryken said. Ryker concludes the statement by pointing to the college’s institutional commitments website for “ accurate information about our convictions.”)

https://abc7chicago.com/chicago-migrant-crisis-venezuelan-migrants-elburn-illinois-buses/14228679/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Elburn, which is 50 miles west of Chicago, isn’t the only community facing similar incidents, migrants have been dropped off in other towns, including Aurora, Fox River Grove, Rosemont, Elmhurst, and University park in recent weeks. Rosemont and Aurora have enacted ordinances banning unscheduled drop-offs. “We did one yesterday in Orland Hills, We’re doing one tomorrow in Matteson. It’s the same type of model ordinance that we’ve put our flavor to accommodate the particular municipality as far as the size,” said Burt Odelson, village attorney for Chicago Ridge. . .But Oak Park has a different approach. The village is using a grant from the state to support 162 asylum-seekers housed at a hotel and a YMCA. In addition, 18 people are staying at a local church with the support of volunteers.)

— Chicago suburbs passing laws as ‘rogue buses’ drop off asylum seekers
https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/chicago-suburbs-scramble-as-rogue-buses-drop-off-asylum-seekers/3312421/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Wednesday night, Elburn passed a new ordinance governing how drop-offs of asylum seekers would be handled. “If they come in unannounced, especially after the train has stopped running, we may not be able to help them,” Administrator John Nevenhoven said. “We don’t have resources for 30-to-50 people in the middle of the night.” Elburn’s ordinance would oblige the bus carrier to file an application to use that bus stop for any intercity bus traffic, according to officials. . .Chicago Ridge officials also passed an ordinance on Wednesday. “The bus company has to get hold of us five days ahead of time, get a permit, and find out where to go and drop, and if they don’t, they could be fined and the bus could be impounded,” Chicago Ridge Attorney Burt Odelson said. Odelson says that around a dozen suburbs have passed similar ordinances in recent weeks. “I rep several municipalities. Two emergency passages in the last week, one yesterday, one tonight and another is expected tomorrow,” he said. . .In Oak Park, the village has welcomed more than 150 migrants, but permanent housing is needed by the end of January, something that other suburbs also have expressed. “We have no facilities,” Walters said. “Should a bus show up and people not decide to get on the train? We can’t force people to do that if they don’t want to.” Johnson said that “multiple rogue buses” arrived over the Christmas holiday weekend and dropped off asylum seekers in random locations in violations of safety protocols. In all, at least 95 buses have been cited in violence of Chicago’s ordinances, with two buses being impounded.)

https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/chicago-suburbs-migrant-bus-dropoffs-restrictions
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA8-b-yOhCE
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now the list of suburbs that have already approved or are exploring measures to prevent migrants from being dropped off is growing longer. “The City of Chicago is ill-equipped to take care of them, there’s no way we should be expecting small suburban communities to be able to do this,” said New Lenox Mayor Tim Baldermann. Baldermann says they’ve had police stationed at two Metra stations and have yet to receive any migrant buses; however, they did locate one migrant who was lost and walking along the highway. “We did have one migrant the other day who was walking down Route 30, we were able to, with our fire department and police department, communicate with this migrant who had said they’d been walking for a day and a half. They were told they were in Chicago and of course they weren’t,” said Baldermann. “Our fire department checked them to make sure they were healthy, make sure there was no pending medical issue, and then we were able to put them on a train and send them to the City of Chicago.” Baldermann signed an executive order last week prohibiting unscheduled buses. It remains in effect until the Board of Trustees meets on Monday, Jan. 8 to review and vote on the proposed ordinance. Similarly, in Elburn, the village board approved an ordinance to restrict “unscheduled intercity buses” on Wednesday evening.)

I would focus on those candidates who reject the most planks in the Republican Party platform, most commonly, its individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. I would focus on those candidates who blame me the most for their defeats. I would focus on those candidates who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/20231227/editorials/daily-herald-opinion-candidates-should-be-required-to-provide-email-addresses/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Of course, some people running for public office believe they don’t need to speak to the traditional media and refuse to answer questions from newspaper editors. That’s unfortunate, because we want to provide as much information about the candidates as possible so our readers can make educated decisions in the voting booth. The questionnaires we prepare for elections allow candidates to communicate their views directly to the public. The answers they provide are often published unedited on our website for anyone to see. . .One bright spot came from DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek, who has long worked to improve how her office runs elections. When asked, the DuPage clerk’s office immediately sent us the email addresses for all 30 candidates who had filed for countywide, county board and forest preserve board seats. So, we thank Kaczmarek and her staff for collecting the information in the first place — and providing it without forcing us to jump through hoops to get it. . .Candidates willing to answer questions from the press allow us to educate the voters about them — something we all want.)

In my defense, I stress that I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt. I became a licensed CPA and earned four other job-related professional certifications. I earned three job-related master’s degrees.)
https://foxillinois.com/news/nation-world/rep-marjorie-taylor-greene-backs-mass-government-layoffs-there-are-plenty-of-jobs-washington-argentina-javier-milei
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., backed mass layoffs of government employees Wednesday, citing a wide availability of private sector work. The congresswoman was replying to reporting by journalist John Soloman, who shared a story about Javier Milei, the president of Argentina who some have likened to former President Donald Trump. The article details Milei’s recent dismissal of over 5,000 government employees. Rep. Greene reposted the article, saying she would support a similar measure being taken in the U.S. “This is the way and we should do the same,” the Republican wrote. “Release them to the private sector, there are plenty of jobs.”)

According to briefs filed with the court, state lawmakers passed that amendment after the Associated Press filed a blanket FOIA request seeking the names of all FOID cardholders in the state, along with the expiration dates of their cards.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2023/12/27/lgbtq-population-by-state/71891834007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: New data estimates the greatest number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender U.S. adults live in the South, confirming findings from recent years. Across the country, researchers estimate more than 5% of U.S. adults are LGBTQ+, matching prior LGBTQ+ population data. Young people ages 18-24 are much more likely to identify as LGBTQ+, according to the report from the Williams Institute at the University of California Los Angeles. The report, based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, found that in 2020 and 2021, there were nearly 14 million LGBTQ+ adults in the U.S. − with some states having noticeably higher percentages of gay and queer residents than others. Earlier this year, a poll from Gallup found a slightly higher percentage of U.S. adults are LGBTQ+. Overall, multiple polls show that the adult LGBTQ population has been steadily increasing for years. “Look at the numbers, more people are coming out younger and people are coming out in places where LGBTQ folks have been less out and visible,” Cathy Renna, a spokesperson for the National LGBTQ Task Force, told USA TODAY. Broken down by state, the report shows Washington, D.C., Oregon and Delaware top the list for greatest percentage of gay and queer residents. The census, the nation’s most well-known population survey, does not gather data on Americans’ sexuality or gender identity. In 2021, other, smaller surveys from the bureau began asking those questions of respondents for the first time. How many people in the US are LGBTQ?
Researchers at the Williams Institute, a leading national LGBTQ+ population data research group, estimate more than 13.9 million LGBTQ+ adults live in the U.S., representing 5.5% of the population. Every year, Gallup also releases results of a poll estimating how many Americans are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Gallup’s last report, which polled a nationally representative group of 10,000 respondents, found 7.2% identified as LGBTQ+. The number was highest among adult Gen Zers, or people born between 1997 and 2012, according to Pew Research Center. South continues to have highest percentage of LGBTQ+ people
The new data shows nearly 36% of the nation’s adult LGBTQ+ population lives in the South, representing more than 5 million people. The number is also an increase from the last data released by the Williams Institute in 2014, showing 35% of the nation’s LGBTQ+ population lived in the South. Researchers defined the South as states spanning from Texas and Oklahoma, to Florida and north through Delaware. Kentucky, West Virginia and Washington, D.C., are included in the grouping. In recent years, Southern Republican-led states passed more laws restricting transgender health care, access to school sports and instruction on LGBTQ+ history than any other part of the country. For that reason, the South is at the forefront of the national fight for LGBTQ+ rights and equality, Renna said. “Despite the backlash and despite challenges we’re facing, we’re resilient and we’re not going anywhere,” Renna said. Speaking from New Orleans, which the National LGBTQ Task Force selected for its next annual conference, Renna said the South is where there’s the most at stake for people’s lives because it’s home to the most people living under the most oppressive laws. “This is where a lot of the work really needs to happen,” she said, adding that her organization chose to host its conference in Louisiana because “there are so many LGBTQ people here that are underrepresented in media, culture and frankly in the movement.” Researchers found that 5.7% of Louisiana’s adult population is LGBTQ+, ranking slightly higher than states like New York, California and Illinois. In 2021, another LGBTQ+ advocacy group, GLAAD, analyzed Southern media coverage of LGBTQ+ communities and found that dozens of outlets published few or zero substantive stories on LGBTQ+ issues, including HIV/AIDS, during the 18-month period ending in December 2020. Gen Z most likely to be LGBTQ+
Generation Z, the youngest American generation to include adults, has a much higher percentage of LGBTQ+ members than older generations. Researchers found that in 2020 and 2021, 15.2% of Gen Z identified as LGBTQ+, representing more than 4.6 million people. Earlier this year, Gallup found 19.7% of Gen Z − or nearly 1 in 5 − said they were LGBTQ+ in 2022. “It’s certainly not uncommon for younger people to say they’re lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or however else they would identify themselves,” said Jeff Jones, a researcher at Gallup who has been tracking LGBTQ+ population data since 2012. With each passing year, as more Gen Zers enter adulthood, the cohort’s LGBTQ+ members also push the entire adult national total higher, Jones said. “As more come into adulthood, replacing the older people, the overall number should go up,” he said. Bisexuals make up majority of LGBTQ+ population. Researchers have long found that bisexual people − people who are attracted to more than one gender − make up more than half of America’s LGBTQ+ population. Researchers at the Williams Institute did not break down data based on sexuality, instead focusing on state-by-state LGBTQ+ populations. The most recent data from Gallup found more than 58% of all adult LGBTQ+ people in the U.S. are bisexual. Researchers in 2019 found that compared with gays and lesbians, bisexuals are far less likely to be out about their sexuality with people they’re close to. Some public health professors who study sexuality say biphobia could be playing a role. What states have the most LGBTQ+ people? This month’s new data from the Williams Institute is the latest batch from the group to rank the states that have the greatest percentage of LGBTQ+ residents. As in recent years, Washington, D.C., takes the top spot, with 14.3% of adults identifying with the acronym. Here are the other top states, and the percentage of adult residents who said they’re LGBTQ+: Washington, D.C. − 14.3%, Oregon − 7.8%, Delaware − 7.5%, Vermont − 7.4%, New Hampshire − 7.2%, Washington − 6.9%, Colorado − 6.8%, Maine − 6.8%, Nevada − 6.6%, Massachusetts − 6.5%)

Tampa-area Republican Rep. Laurel Lee, during an appearance on Fox News, called for tougher measures to protect American sovereignty since Biden has opted to turn law enforcement authorities into “travel agents,” by handcuffing their response to the border crisis. – Liam Edgar

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20231117/whats-behind-the-surge-in-deadly-crashes-involving-drugged-drivers
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois has a drugged driving problem, and it began well before the legalization of recreational marijuana in 2020. That’s among the key findings of a new analysis of the state’s crash statistics and a driver survey conducted by AAA — The Auto Club Group. According to the data, the number of drivers involved in fatal crashes who tested positive for drugs grew from 235 in 2013 to 418 in 2021, a 78% hike. The increase is even greater for cannabinoids such as marijuana — 96 to 203, a 111% leap — but there also have been more drivers testing positive for both prescription and illegal narcotics after deadly crashes. Experts attribute the increase to a number of causes, from easier access to recreational drugs to a lack of driver education about the effects of drugs on their abilities behind the wheel.)

But in today’s dollars, my CSRS pension is only 44% of what my GAO salary was in 1997 and less than what my IRS salary was in 1972.

— Flooded basements are becoming more common in Chicago. Here’s what you (and city officials) can do. When big storms hit, basements fill with stormwater and sewage. But there are steps, big and small, that could help keep Chicago above water. – Jessica Pupovac (COMMENT: I should write a book about the many thousands of dollars and the many hundreds of hours that I have had to spend since 1984 to stop basement and lot flooding a) because Wheaton approved a subdivision lot drainage plan that was woefully inadequate and b) because Wheaton allowed many serious construction/building code violations. Wheaton and developer/builder should have but did not disclose to potential lot buyers that the subdivision was constructed on a watershed area and former septic field that was cris-crossed with subterranean drainage lines. Further, Wheaton allowed construction of 928 Golf Lane uphill ( https://www.redfin.com/IL/Wheaton/928-Golf-Ln-60189/home/18126604 ) and that dramatically increased stormwater runoff problems for the subdivision and especially for my lot.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters fill a tremendous void in Illinois. They bring attention to news and commentary that promote the a) individual responsibility, b) traditional marriage and family, c) right to life, d) immigration, e) illegal drugs, f) Second Amendment, and g) equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. The newsletters discourage Democrat, Libertarian, and Green party promotion of a) dependency on government and charity, b) LGBTQ, c) abortion, d) mass/illegal immigration, e) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, f) diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and g) Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. If the Illinois Republican Party, Republican county party organizations, Republican township and ward party organizations, Republican elected officials, conservative leaders and activists, and religious leaders and activists did what they should be doing, there would be no need for GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and Republicans would be the majority in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton.

https://www.dailysignal.com/2023/08/04/white-house-purges-442-reporters-using-new-press-credential-rules/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the past three months, the number of reporters with access to the White House dropped by 31%. There are now 442 fewer reporters with a coveted “hard pass”—the result of new rules announced in May that took effect Tuesday. The Daily Signal’s Fred Lucas was among the reporters slated to lose his White House press credentials, although he was given a 10-day extension “to submit the required materials.” The White House now requires reporters to obtain press credentials from Congress or the Supreme Court to fulfill its new requirement; Lucas is currently awaiting a decision on his applications to the other branches. Politico’s West Wing Playbook first reported the numbers Wednesday along with news that Simon Ateba, the White House correspondent for Today News Africa, lost his hard pass. Ateba, along with the other 441 reporters who no longer have credentials, won’t be able to attend White House press briefings or access the sprawling Pennsylvania Avenue campus unless they obtain what’s called a temporary day pass. The White House announced new rules in May to limit the number of journalists who are eligible for a White House hard pass. Reporters are still allowed to apply for a day pass, but they must do so daily and undergo Secret Service review. Up until this week, the White House didn’t disclose the number of reporters who had a hard pass. Politico reported, “Within the past three months, the number of hard pass holders dropped from 1,417 to 975, with those approved reflecting a mix of renewals and new applications.” . . . The six rules outlined in the May memo require reporters to be employed full time at an organization that disseminates news, live in the Washington, D.C., area, regularly access and cover the White House, and submit to a Secret Service investigation. They also now require pass holders to first obtain “accreditation by a press gallery in either the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, or Supreme Court.” (See the full email from the White House Press Office at the end of this story.) The memo also gives President Joe Biden’s press team greater power to expel journalists who don’t “act in a professional manner.” Ateba regularly sparred with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, leading to stories in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and an appearance on the now-canceled “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Last month, the White House Press Office sent Ateba a warning that he risked expulsion if he continued to interrupt briefings in violation of the new rules.)

The University of North Carolina, meanwhile, has eagerly embraced the Supreme Court’s decision on affirmative action. – Steven McGuire (COMMENT: Democrats run colleges. If you were in high school today and writing a college application essay today, what would you feel pressured to conceal? I would feel pressured to conceal that I am heterosexual, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, Protestant, German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, I lived in Crete 1948-1972, etc. The writer of Money Magazine’s nasty 4-page February 1978 article on me questioned my not wanting to conceal that the fact I was Protestant and German American.)

THE HILL
— Democrats say “Republicans to be more selective in choosing Senate candidates in 2024.” The leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) have not selected me to be a candidate for any elected office. More than that, they have viciously discouraged me from even thinking about running for any elected office. More than that, MTRO leaders a) viciously worked against my bid to be selected to fill the Wheaton City Council West District vacancy in 2019 and b) viciously defeated me (69 votes to my 13 votes) when I ran for the open MTRO Treasurer office in 2004. More than that, they ignore, dismiss, belittle, demonize, denigrate, and condemn the fact that a) I worked for GAO 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) I passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt, c) I became a licensed CPA and a Certified Fraud Examiner, Government Financial Manager, Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant, d) I served as the MTRO webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, e) I served on many MTRO fundraising committees, f) I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, g) I served as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, h) I served as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, i) I served as a member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee 2003-2011, j) I served as a member of the Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee 2003-2007, k) I serve as a member of the American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board 2001-2004, and l) I served as a member of the Milton Township Cemetery Authority 2001-2004.

They hint/imply/argue/shout that to be a journalist, you must have a degree in journalism, you must be liberal/moderate, you must be a Democrat, and you must get paid for what you do. In my defense, I worked for GAO as an analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109,132-$142,650/year. Much of what GAO analysts do is very similar to what journalists do.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The city’s second African-American mayor, and the first in more than a generation, said the press was picking on him because he was Black. “I’m a Black man that’s the mayor, but my story is being interpreted by people who don’t look like me,” Adams said at the time, before launching a rant about newsroom diversity. The lecture didn’t go over well with editors and reporters, who wondered about the thickness of Adams’ skin. . .Adams on Friday announced a new scholarship Initiative to increase diversity in journalism that will commit at least $500,000 in one year for students of color in New York City to emulate the people they read online and in the newspapers and see on TV.)

ATLANTIC
— Democrats acknowledge that “Liberal Suburbs Have Their Own Border Wall. Residents of rich blue towns talk about inclusion, but their laws do the opposite.” As more and more and more Democrats move in, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton get more and more and more liberal. As someone who has lived in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton since 1978, I should write a book about that.

The more of the aforesaid that a recruit is, the more that recruit would be given unfair job assignments, unfair performance expectations, and unfair performance appraisals and the more that “up-or-out” would be used to get rid of that recruit. The Democrats who run the federal government want all federal employees to be “good little Democrats.”
https://www.riverbender.com/articles/details/duckworth-introduces-new-legislation-to-help-address-military-recruitment-crisis-by-expanding-pool-of-talented-potential-recruits-66602.cfm

She spoke to Peter Boghossian about the differences between men and women. This clip discusses how the parents of transgender children will not be able to face what they have done.

It is called a) up-or-out, b) political affiliation discrimination, c) reverse discrimination, d) age discrimination, e) religious discrimination, and f) national origin discrimination. All my coworkers who my Democrat IRS superiors promoted over me were Democrats who were minority, female, veteran, non-Protestant, and/or non-German American and/or a) had less job-related work experience than I had, b) had less job-related education than I had, and/or c) had no professional certifications.
