— Diversity is not new to America – MICHAEL BARONE
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/equality-not-elitism/diversity-is-not-new-to-america
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When George Washington took command of the Continental Army in 1775, he immediately noted the differences in attitudes and behavior between New England Yankees and his fellow Virginians. In Federalist No. 60, written in 1788, Alexander Hamilton wrote of the “diversity in the state of property, in the genius, manners, and habits of the people of the different parts of the Union.” The founders lived when memory was fresh of how religious wars wore apart much of Europe and the British Isles. They knew that Massachusetts was founded by Calvinists, Virginia by Anglicans, Maryland by Catholics, and Pennsylvania by Quakers. The Articles of Confederation they drew up to govern their revolution against Britain purposely gave the states maximum autonomy. The framers of the Constitution aimed to create a more powerful federal government, but with limited powers. “No religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States,” they wrote in Article VI, fully aware of religious tests in Britain and Europe.)

NEW JERSEY 101.5
— NEW JERSEY IS OPENLY ENGAGING IN SYSTEMIC RACISM – Dennis Malloy
https://nj1015.com/new-jersey-is-openly-engaging-in-systemic-racism-opinion/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The term “systemic racism” has been tossed around a lot, especially in the last few years. Most of it is just hyperbolic, overheated rhetoric used by some to gain more power or political advantage. No evidence seems to exist in the way the term is being used by many, other than affirmative action, where race is used for preferential treatment in education and employment. Now the state of New Jersey is doubling down and promoting a more aggressive and blatant form of racism. At least one state agency has told its members not to participate as a speaker in any conference that is being given by only white males. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority put out this statement in response to our newsroom. “Under most circumstances, NJEDA staff should not participate when the panel/speakers are wholly comprised of white males. If staff are asked to participate in such a panel, they should inform the requester of NJEDA’s policy and, if appropriate, may suggest additional, diverse speakers.” Of course, that kind of directive would not be acceptable directed toward any other group. But the answer to racial prejudice or unfair treatment is not more of the same poison. It’s doubtful that if a panel happens to be composed of white males that other people from other groups were excluded for their race or gender. But this kind of policy supposes so, and therefore engages in racial animus and promotes division and resentment among people, who should have one purpose in mind: to get the job done well.)

AMERICAN LAWYER
— Law Firms Are Willing to Pay for More Diverse Lateral Candidates, Raising Questions for Recruiters – Patrick Smith
(COMMENT: In 1980, when I was 31 years old, the Democrats who ran GAO forced me to take a $20,361/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $97,395) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $77,034/year) to transfer from IRS. If I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female, GAO would have given me a promotion to GS-13 (currently $102,188/year) to transfer. GAO audits IRS. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels (currently $85,935-$97,395/year). I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Totalist leaders use fear and love to control their members. Members are isolated from other ideas and relationships in totalist organizations. In a totalist organization, only the leader’s pronouncements are true.)

He has consistently sought justice as a prosecutor and a judge, and he will continue to do so on the Supreme Court.” DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin: “When electing a Supreme Court Justice, it’s important that we have someone who is independent, honest and committed to justice. No one embodies that more than Justice Michael Burke. He will represent the 3rd District with all of those values every day as our Supreme Court Justice.)

— Justice Michael Burke announces Ill. Sup. Ct. run – Rick Koshko
https://1430wcmy.com/2021/09/27/justice-michael-burke-announces-ill-sup-ct-run/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Supreme Court Justice Michael Burke is running for election as a Republican. He’s serving from the current 2nd Judicial District. A new district map will be in effect when the next term starts, so if he’s elected Burke will be in the newly drawn 3rd District that covers LaSalle, Bureau, and Grundy counties plus DuPage County where he’s from. Burke joined the state’s highest court last year when Robert Thomas retired. He announced his candidacy today, just three days after Gov. Pritzker signed the bill into law to create the new legislative and judicial districts that’ll be in effect for the 2022 elections. It’s the first redraw of the Illinois judicial districts in nearly 60 years. According to the 72-year old Burke’s campaign web site, people endorsing him for election include St. Sen. Sue Rezin, Illinois House members Tom Demmer and David Welter, former LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton, Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland, and former Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan. If he wins the 2022 elections, Burke would have a ten-year term toward the end of which he would be up for a retention vote if he wants to keep the job. The ballots in 2032 would ask voters if he should remain a Supreme Court Justice. But the 2022 ballots will ask voters to choose from Burke and other candidates if others run. Justice Michael Burke is not related to Ill. Sup. Ct. Chief Justice Anne Burke.)

My ancestors have lived in Crete since 1854 when they homesteaded a farm there. My great grandfather and then my grandfather operated Crete’s only hardware store at the northeast corner of Main (Dixie Highway) and Exchange Streets until the 1950s. My parents and I lived in an apartment above that store 1948-1954. My brother continues to live in a house in Crete that my grandfather had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864.)

— With Application Deadline Approaching, Duckworth Seeks Additional Student Applications For U.S. Military Service Academies
(DIERSEN: Were you an outstanding Illinois student? I was not. I just barely made it into the top 20% of my high school class in 1966. My ACT score  was only 24. Further, a) my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, b) I had partial red/green color blindness, and c) I could not run because I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease ). Further, I did not demonstrate leadership ability. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; and collected delinquent taxes for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://www.riverbender.com/articles/details/with-application-deadline-approaching-duckworth-seeks-additional-student-applications-for-us-military-service-academies-53303.cfm
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Each year Duckworth, with the assistance of a nomination committee, selects from the applicants a group of outstanding Illinois students to receive Congressional nominations to attend West Point, the Air Force Academy, the Naval Academy, or the Merchant Marine Academy. “It takes a special kind of young person to succeed at a U.S. Military Service Academy,” said Duckworth. “The rigorous nomination process demands outstanding test scores, a high GPA, and a commitment to community service. I encourage all interested Illinois students to apply for a nomination, and I applaud their desire to serve our country.” Service academies allow young people to serve their country while receiving a full four-year scholarship. Upon acceptance of an appointment into an Academy, a student commits to five years of active duty service after graduation. U.S. citizens between the ages of 17 and 23 may receive appointments from one of the four service academies. In order to be considered, a student must get a formal nomination from their Member of Congress, Senator, or the Vice President.)

— APRIL 28, 2021 FLASHBACK: FROM THE ARTICLE: Most significantly, two landmark court cases — Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois and Shakman v. the Democratic Organization of Cook County — ended political patronage as we knew it.
(COMMENT: All my critics/opponents, all their operatives, and all their dupes have always promoted patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. My Democrat IRS and GAO superiors knew full-well a) that my wife had helped elect Jim Thompson and b) that Thompson promoted patronage and political affiliation discrimination. (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutan_v._Republican_Party_of_Illinois and http://www.nytimes.com/1996/03/13/us/seeking-return-to-ways-of-patronage-in-politics.html ) Because of the position taken by the Republican Party of Illinois in Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois, my U.S. Senators and their staff members and my U.S. Representatives and their staff members made it very clear that they did NOT want to hear my complaints about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation in the federal government. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes reject the decision in Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois. My Democrat IRS and GAO superiors treated me like I was part of a plot to stop them from hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females. They were fully aware of the arguments that Thompson, Jim Edgar, and Lee Daniels made in Rutan that government employers should be allowed to engage in patronage and political affiliation discrimination.)

(COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. But ever-increasingly, in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton, the more of the following planks in the Republican Party platform that a candidate supports, the less help that candidate gets from the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization: traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving.)

(COMMENT: Did you apply for college aid? I did not. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that to hint/imply/argue/shout that my parents were filthy rich. But neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school. If my parents were filthy rich, why did I do yard work and deliver newspapers 1962-1964; wash dishes 1964-1966; clean golf shoes, chip slag, and pump gasoline in 1966; deliver mail 1966-1969; and work on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970?)

— Path to increasing minority homeownership goes through Fannie and Freddie – Zach Wichter
(COMMENT: What put you on the path to homeownership? I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 when I was 24 years old. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. The down payment came from what I earned a) working for IRS full-time for the previous 15 months, first in Chicago, and then in Harvey and b) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights part-time for the previous 18 months and full-time for the 7 months before that. That income also enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971 and to pay for tuition and books for graduate business courses at Loyola for the previous 9 months.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about voters in my precinct who talk and/or act like my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have succeeded in getting them to blame me and to blame what I have done as their Republican Precinct Committeeman and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor for the losses that Republican candidates on ballots in our precinct have suffered. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes paint themselves as being operatives or as dupes for the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, and/or unsuccessful Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct.)

Democrat educators failed to turn me into a Democrat operative or into a Democrat dupe while I took a) graduate finance courses at IIT 1992-1997, b) Certified Internal Auditor examination review courses 1980-1981, c) graduate accounting courses at DePaul 1976-1980, d) CPA examination review courses 1978-1979, e) graduate business courses at Loyola 1972-1976, f) undergraduate courses at NIU 1969-1970, and g) undergraduate courses at UIC 1966-1968.)

— Unfair retirement cuts – James Glover, President, Chapter 1309
(COMMENT: I am one of those 99,640. My Social Security is $365 less each month because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20210902/unfair-retirement-cuts
(FROM THE LETTER: I am a retired federal employee who loses $500 per month from my earned Social Security benefit. In 1984, Congress unfairly reduced public employee SSA pensions by two-thirds of the benefit earned and promised for no reason other than to save SSA money. No other category of pensions was reduced. We urge Congress to pass HR 82 and S1302 to remedy this unjust treatment. This unfair law adversely affects 99,640 citizens in Illinois and needs to be repealed so we can get the same benefits earned like everyone else.)

EVANSTON PATCH
— Evanston/Skokie School District 65 this week filed a motion to dismiss drama teacher Stacy Deemar’s federal civil rights lawsuit. – Jonah Meadows
(COMMENT: My Democrat GAO superiors kept me in a hostile work environment and took many adverse actions against me. They forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)
https://patch.com/illinois/evanston/drama-teachers-discrimination-suit-falls-woefully-short-d-65
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The filing cited comments from the teacher’s own attorney, who, in a television interview, appeared to admit that her client had not suffered discrimination. . .In her complaint, the drama teacher failed to allege that she was harmed in any way by the district’s race-conscious curriculum, failed to state an actionable civil rights claim and failed to allege that she suffered any adverse action or a hostile work environment, according to a memorandum in support of District 65’s motion.)

— Dishonorable discharges for vaccine refusal would be blocked under congressional proposal – Leo Shane III
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, because I had become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, they gave me a dishonorable discharge, that is, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previously, they had taken many other adverse actions against me. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the following side with my Democrat GAO superiors: Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. Unsuccessful Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, their major donors, their fundraisers, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers side with my Democrat GAO superiors.)
https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2021/09/02/dishonorable-dismissals-for-vaccine-refusal-would-be-blocked-under-congressional-proposal/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The troops could still be forced from the ranks, but would receive honorable discharges. Supporters said the idea is to ensure those individuals aren’t given a lifelong mark on their military record because of personal concerns about the vaccine. . .“However, if somebody in good faith in the military says they can’t do it, they shouldn’t be stained for the rest of their lives with a dishonorable discharge.” . . .Amendment sponsor Rep. Mark Green, R-Tenn. and an Army veteran, said that an other-than-honorable dismissal “significantly impacts an individual for the rest of their lives, including future employment … We should not destroy their lives for this.” . . .Troops who refuse can face various types of punishment, including dismissal from the service. “Many Americans have reservations about taking a vaccine that has only been available for less than a year,” the bill language states. “Reports of adverse actions being taken or threatened by military leadership at all levels are antithetical to our fundamental American values.” . . . Other types of reprimand besides dismissals, such as reductions in rank, would still be allowed under the measure.)

I would focus on past and present leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, etc. I would focus on unsuccessful Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, their major donors, their fundraisers, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers. I would focus on those who I have sued. I would focus on my Democrat superiors in the federal government.)

BIZ PAC REVIEW
— Verizon’s divisive ‘justice’ program reportedly goes all in, says white ‘oppressors’ must seek ‘lifelong’ atonement – Vivek Saxena
(COMMENT: How soon, if not already, will your employer if you are still employed, the organizations that you are a member of, and the government entities that you are under require you to do what Verizon requires its employees to do? I should write a book about those who are seeking lifelong atonement by doing everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading those letters. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, etc.)
https://www.bizpacreview.com/2021/08/26/verizons-divisive-justice-program-reportedly-goes-all-in-says-white-oppressors-must-seek-lifelong-atonement-1124736/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Like the CRT initiatives established by other American corporations, Verizon’s initiative is divided into training modules, starting with the customary introduction module — called the “Conscious Inclusion & Anti-Racism” module in Verizon’s case — in which employees must fess up to their alleged privileges. “Employees are asked to list their ‘race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, religion, education, profession, and sexual orientation’ on an official company worksheet,” Rufo revealed in a report published Wednesday. Employees are then asked to essentially rank themselves based on the “intersectional” hierarchy. “Intersectionality” is a foundational CRT principle that classifies people into a hierarchy based on their race, their religion, their gender, their sexuality, etc. CRT zealots claim whites, Asians, Christians, heterosexual people, etc., are at the top of the hierarchy because of their alleged “privilege.” Yet it’s the people at the bottom of the hierarchy — blacks, gays, etc. — who appear to benefit from the most privileges and perks such as affirmative action. For instance, Verizon’s “woke” training demands that those at the top of the hierarchy commit to a “lifelong process” of seeking “accountability with marginalized individuals.” In other words, they — the alleged “oppressors” — must spend the rest of their lives kissing the butts of the alleged “oppressed.”)
