— In TV shows and films today, journalists are bad news – Don Aucoin
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have slandered me the most since 2000 for what I have done as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor. Better yet, I should sue them.)
https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/10/21/arts/how-tv-shows-films-portray-journalists-today-is-bad-news/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: To many conservatives, the mainstream media are essentially an arm of the Democratic Party. To many progressives (who see Fox News as an arm of the GOP), reporters adhere to a misguided notion of “objectivity” whose on-the-one-hand-on-the-other-hand approach often obscures the truth about issues. So the news business is leaking support from both sides of the vessel, as it were. There’s no way to know how much any of that factors into the findings of a new Gallup poll on media credibility, but the numbers are dispiriting for anyone who understands that journalism is vital to the functioning of democracy. Gallup found that Americans’ trust in the media to “report the news fully, accurately and fairly” has dropped to 36 percent, the second-lowest on record. Breaking down that number, only 7 percent of respondents told Gallup they have “a great deal” of faith in the reporting done by newspapers, TV, and radio. The other 29 percent said they have “a fair amount” of trust.)

My Democrat IRS superiors never promoted me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and took many other adverse actions against me. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 and took many other adverse actions against me. RINO leaders of the following, their operatives, and their dupes have taken many adverse actions against me: Milton Township Republican Organization, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Park District. RINO candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers have taken many adverse actions against me.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the 20-year period from 1970 to 1990, whites, especially those without college degrees, defected en masse from the Democratic Party. In those years, the percentage of white working class voters who identified with the Democratic Party fell to 40 percent from 60, Lane Kenworthy, a sociologist at the University of California-San Diego, wrote in “The Democrats and Working-Class Whites.” Now, three decades later, the Democratic Party continues to struggle to maintain not just a biracial but a multiracial and multiethnic coalition — keeping in mind that Democrats have not won a majority of white voters in a presidential election since Lyndon Johnson’s landslide victory in 1964.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Officials clarify Joliet police chief firing, give ultimatum – ALICIA FABBRE
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors hinted that they might let me work for another 6 years when I would then be eligible for regular retirement if I would happily agree to be constructively downgraded and a) happily agree to work for my Black subordinate or b) happily agree to be transferred to another audit group. I had been assigned to the group that audits federal financial industry regulators since 1990. I had earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT earlier in 1997. I had become a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-joliet-police-chief-asked-to-resign-20211009-d46ei3yzafcn5hpkr6iq562sta-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ousted Joliet police Chief Dawn Malec was given the option to resign from city employment entirely or face firing after being removed from the top job Wednesday — a move she said she won’t make. In a letter, hand-delivered to Malec’s home hours after City Manager Jim Capparelli informed her she was out as chief, Capparelli clarified his earlier action, saying her termination was only for her role as police chief. The letter states that Malec has “not attained eligibility to retire on full pension, and therefore will be returned to (her) rank of lieutenant, effective immediately.” In the letter, Capparelli offered her the option of resigning from the department by 5 p.m. Friday. If not, he warned, she could be fired.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: DuPage County Board members at odds over redistricting as deadline looms – Katlyn Smith
(COMMENT: In 2015, Democrat plants and RINOs redrew my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton and put me in the same precinct with Jeanne Ives. I should write a book about that.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20211011/dupage-county-board-members-at-odds-over-redistricting-as-deadline-looms
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I would like to see alternative maps using traditional redistricting parameters, taking out incumbency requirements,” Chavez wrote in an email. Zay said there are no incumbency requirements, but that officials try not to draw county board members and forest preserve commissioners out of their districts “if at all possible.” “But again, that wasn’t an objective of it,” Zay said. “Ours was to keep that deviation of the districts under 1% and to make communities contiguous and whole if we could, and that’s what we did.”)

(COMMENT: If my Democrat GAO superiors had not forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and I was still working for GAO, a) the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) would not have paid me $1,316,736 in today’s dollars and b) I would have paid into the CSRS $223,180 in today’s dollars.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2021/10/11/house-republicans-vote-impeach-trump-who-they-face-2022/5833206001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. Kinzinger responded to Gonzalez’s decision to not seek reelection in a video posted to Twitter. “Now the pundits and politicos are discussing whether this means that Trump won, so let me answer this question. Yes, as of now, Trump is winning,” he said. “Not because Anthony [Gonzalez] decided not to run, but because so many in the Republican party decided to stay silent.” Kinzinger said his GOP colleagues watched from the sidelines and lacked the courage to speak out following the events from Jan. 6. “The future of the party and politics in this country doesn’t rest on the 10 of us. It rests on the courage of the 180 others who have been silent so far. To my GOP colleagues, the time is now to speak up,” he added. Kinzinger, who represents northern Illinois, is one of two Republicans to serve on the bipartisan Jan. 6 committee to investigate the attack on the Capitol. In a New York Times guest essay, Kinzinger said he is on the commission to get answers to questions about misinformation campaigns, lies perpetuated by Trump and other leaders and investigate the motivations of those who stormed the Capitol. Kinzinger has been a consistent critic of Trump, most recently calling him a “snowflake” and “one of the weakest men I’ve ever seen” on CNN following the former president’s response to President George W. Bush’s 9/11 speech on violent extremism. Kinzinger has raised nearly $1.9 million for the 2021-2022 election cycle, according to OpenSecrets. However, Politico reported a new congressional map may eliminate Kinzinger’s district. That could leave Kinzinger with the option to face an incumbent in a different district. Despite reports the district may be eliminated, seven other Republican challengers have filed with the FEC to run for Kinzinger’s seat. One challenger, Catalina Lauf, is a former Department of Commerce advisor under Trump. She received the endorsement of Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., in July. Lauf unsuccessfully ran for a Congress seat in 2020. In a social media video announcing her campaign, Lauf called Kinzinger a “weak-kneed, establishment Republican who cares more about his next MSNBC appearance than the voters who elected him.” Lauf has raised over $350,000 for the 2021-2022 election cycle.)
