I should write a book about those who promote LGBTQ, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois.

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200825/casten-and-ives-sound-off-on-black-lives-matter-and-trump-during-forums
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten and Republican challenger Jeanne Ives voiced diametrically different opinions of the Black Lives Matter movement and its members during separate public forums Tuesday. Casten, a Downers Grove resident seeking his second term as the congressman for Illinois’ 6th District, called the movement “amazingly inspiring” and said most Americans support the effort, which opposes police brutality and racially motivated violence. “I think that is such a beautiful sign of progress,” Casten said. Conversely, Ives, a former state legislator from Wheaton who unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2018, blasted the group as “a Marxist organization that wants to destroy the nuclear family.” Ives also said she doesn’t understand why protesters are allowed to paint the Black Lives Matter name on streets or march without parade permits.)

— Does ‘diversity’ include GOP? – LARRY PENNER
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/aug/23/letters-to-the-editor-does-diversity-include-gop/
(FROM THE LETTER: During the 2020 Democratic National Convention, five Republicans crossed the aisle to speak and endorse Joe Biden for president: John Kasich, Susan Molinari, Colin Powell, Christine Whitman and Meg Whitman. Mr. Biden promised that if elected president he would have the most diverse cabinet and administration in history, representing the gorgeous American mosaic. He also promised to appoint the first female African-American Supreme Court justice. Republicans represent a significant portion of America. How many of them will be invited to serve in Mr. Biden’s Cabinet and administration? Will any of these five Republicans be offered a job in a Biden White House? Will Mr. Biden make a public commitment on this issue of inclusion for Republicans prior to Election Day? Voters want to know.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— OUTSTANDING: Republican National Committee passes resolutions defending Christopher Columbus and blasting ‘cancel culture’ – Naomi Lim
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/republicans-pass-resolutions-defending-christopher-columbus-and-blasting-cancel-culture
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans opted against drafting a 2020 platform, but they did agree on a handful of statements that reflect the party’s core values. The Republican National Committee passed seven resolutions during its annual summer meeting before members and this cycle’s convention delegates vote Monday to renominate President Trump as the GOP standard-bearer for the general election against Democrat Joe Biden. The RNC’s business agenda included affirming its decision to keep its 2016 platform, essentially a nonbinding messaging document outlining Republican positions on a range of issues, until 2024. They also stuck up for Christopher Columbus, credited with the 1492 European discovery of the “New World” of the Americas. Statues erected in Columbus’s honor were toppled or desecrated this summer during protests against racial injustice over the Italian explorer’s treatment of indigenous people, particularly in modern-day Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Republicans on Saturday also ripped “cancel” or “callout” culture, which encourages boycotts of people or businesses by those who don’t condone their comments or actions. “The Republican National Committee voted to approve seven resolutions 1) to conserve history and combat prejudice with respect to Christopher Columbus 2) to uphold the First Amendment in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the ‘cancel culture’ amendment,” Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer tweeted. Other resolutions touted the Trump administration’s accomplishments, urged Congress to do more to prevent Chinese companies dominating the country’s medical supply chain amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and pushed lawmakers “to overhaul the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 refuting the legitimacy of the Southern Poverty Law Center to identify hate groups,” according to Shafer. A second GOP official in the Westin Charlotte meeting room, closed to reporters and TV crews, confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the resolutions were passed. National Republican Committee leaders and state party committee heads are gathering this weekend to provide updates, take part in training sessions, and attend meetings on topics from budgets to internal rules. They’ll be joined on Monday by Republican convention delegates to vote on the 2020 presidential nomination. Trump is visiting Asheville, North Carolina, next week, but White House and campaign aides remain mum on whether he plans to make a surprise appearance in Charlotte. The president plans to deliver his nomination acceptance speech on Thursday at the White House. Most of the Charlotte convention will be replaced by virtual prime-time programming similar to the Democratic convention last week. The Charlotte host committee has already begun its closeout process, which incorporates $3.2 million worth of cash and in-kind donations to the local community that had banked on a convention-related economic boost.)

I represent the Republican Party base in my precinct and I am one of the far too few who represent the Republican Party base in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County’s 4th District, and in DuPage County.

That work required assuring the accuracy and support for each and every word, number, table, graph, chart, conclusion, opinion, and recommendation in GAO reports. I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. My other fact checking qualifications include my becoming a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979.)

— Charges Announced for 17 People After Rockford Protests Over Two Days – MATT KEELEY (DIERSEN: If there have been no Back the Blue rallies in your municipality, why is that? In your municipality, how strong/threatening are the BLMers and LGBTQers, that is, how strong/threatening are the Democrats in your municipality?)
https://www.newsweek.com/charges-announced-17-people-after-illinois-protests-over-two-days-1522193
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Police in Rockford, Illinois announced charges Saturday for 17 people arrested during protests over two straight days. On Friday, 11 protesters were arrested after a small protest blocking East State Street, according to WTVO. Then Saturday, an additional six protesters were arrested during a counterprotest at a “Back the Blue” rally in support of police. Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea, Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana, and State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross held a press conference Saturday afternoon announcing the charges. Six of the protesters were charged with mob action alone, while three more were charged with mob action and resisting arrest. Other charges included aggravated battery to a police officer, disorderly conduct, obstruction of police officers, damage to property and resisting a police officer. “The First Amendment is very clear. It does not give unbridled freedom to infringe on the rights of others,” Ross said. Former Democratic State Rep. Litesa Wallace shared a video in which she said she raised about $2,000 from her supporters to pay the bond for six of those arrested on Friday. “I am exhausted—which doesn’t say a lot because I didn’t do a lot today. I can only imagine how tired and exhausted the individuals who were arrested are. And I can only imagine how tired and exhausted people who are older than me are, who have been in this fight and wanting justice and equality for decades upon decades,” she said. . .The Friday protest was over the treatment of protesters during a May 30 demonstration in Rockford responding to the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Protesters alleged that the Rockford Police used excessive force. An internal investigation by police announced Wednesday that it had found no evidence of wrongdoing by the officers. About 20 protesters announced several demands on Friday, including that the city drop all charges against demonstrators involved in the May 30 protest, and that the police hire an outside investigator to determine whether excessive force was used.)

https://www.wifr.com/2020/08/01/arrests-made-after-protesters-police-clash-after-back-the-blue-rally/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At least 100 attendees of a pro-police rally in downtown Rockford were met by anti-police protesters Saturday morning. The groups Concerned Citizens for America of Northern Illinois and the Illinois Family Institute held the rally at the Winnebago County Justice Center, at 650 W. State Street in downtown Rockford. Rep. John Cabello (R-68th) and former Rep. Jim Sacia (R-89th) spoke at the rally which was held to “Support all men and women in law enforcement and the amazing, vital, and dangerous work they do to protect our communities and country from lawlessness and evil.” This comes following a protest on Friday evening, where nine protesters were taken into custody and later charged. However, former Illinois Rep. Litesa Wallace raised money to help bond out those arrested Friday night.)

Ever-increasingly, states, counties, townships, municipalities, organizations, companies, their operatives, and their dupes make it clear to Whites that they will be gotten rid if they do not admit to being racists.)
https://employment.einnews.com/article_detail/523037205/8Hn9_brd4ZLerKXz
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There’s a new Jim Crow afoot in America. Once again, it’s coming from the Democrats, but this time, instead of pitting whites against blacks, it’s pitting blacks against whites. Beleaguered white people technically have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 at their back but, in the witch hunt atmosphere currently prevailing in America, it’s unclear whether they’ll have the courage to use it. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t mince words. It exists to outlaw discrimination based upon a person’s race, color, religion, sex, or country of national origin. It explicitly expands these protections to employment programs. Under Title VII, “It shall be an unlawful employment practice for any employer, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee controlling apprenticeship or other training or retraining, including on-the-job training programs to discriminate against any individual because of his race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in admission to, or employment in, any program established to provide apprenticeship or other training. (42 U.S. Code §2000e-2(d).)” The City of Seattle has put a program in place for its 10,000 employees. There are special whites-only aspects of the program. In the “white only” portions of the program, whites must admit that they are racist (and, presumably, any refusal is more proof of racism), and then they must have that racism trained out of them. Christopher Rufo has obtained the materials for the segregated “whites only” training. Trying to summarize the material falls far short of showing the immensity of this Title VII violation, so I’ve embedded all of the tweets below.)
