GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What steered you away from vices, poverty, and crime? What steered you toward your successes in life? For me, it was my parents who were conservative Republicans who stressed personal responsibility and becoming a productive member of society. They had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL), raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL. Even though neither of them attended college and my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma and my mother never attended high school, their upbringing of me motivated/enabled me to work my way through college and earn a bachelor’s degree, three masters degrees, six professional certifications, and a professional license. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Illinois Republicans anxiously await the Illinois Republican Party a) to issue a detailed press release on its State Convention and b) to post on its website its new platform and its 12 new resolutions. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Do you know who represented you at the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention on its National Committeeman and National Committeewoman Committee and on its Platform and Resolutions Committee? Do you know how they voted and why? Questions for your representative on the National Committeeman and National Committeewoman Committee: when the final vote was taken, a) did you vote for White or for Shaw for National Committeeman and why and b) did you vote for Belford or for Lasonde for National Committeewoman and why? Which candidates did you vote for in earlier rounds of voting and why? Questions for your representative on the Platform and Resolutions Committee, when the final vote was taken, did you vote for or against the following and why a) each of the proposed resolutions including direct election of IRP State Central Committee members and b) the IRP platform? How did you vote in earlier rounds of voting and why? If I had not been removed from the Platform and Resolutions Committee, I would have answered the aforesaid questions. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— In my opinion, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains should include the following in their next precinct letter concerning the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention: a) who the speakers were, b) how many delegates there were in total and from their congressional district (CD), county, and township/ward, c) the names of the delegates from their CD, county, and township/ward, d) who their IRP State Central Committee (SCC) member appointed to represent them on the IRP State Convention committees and how they voted on the new IRP platform, the 12 new resolutions, direct election of IRP SCC members, National Committeeman, and National Committeewoman, e) links to the new platform and to the 12 new resolutions on the IRP website, and f) lots of information on the new IRP National Committeeman Dean White and the new IRP National Committeewoman Rhonda Belford. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— PARTY POLITICS: Illinois Republicans united behind former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign during their state convention in Collinsville over the weekend. They also got behind a platform that attacks Democrats for supporting abortion rights, eliminating cash bail and promoting transgender identity, according to the Tribune’s Rick Pearson and Jeremy Gorner. Cheering for Trump: “Joe Biden’s vision for the country and JB Pritzker’s vision for the state is, it’s a disaster, and may I say, even that it’s evil,” Congresswoman Mary Miller, a member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, said during the conference. Roll call: Miller was also elected to be the delegation leader of Illinois and could be the voice we hear during roll call to support Trump at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. There was drama: The election to determine the new Republican National Committee members became divisive. An election had to be held because current members Richard Porter and Demetra DeMonte will see their terms come up at the end of the convention. How it played out: Republican State Central Committeeman Dean White was elected to replace Porter after Lake County GOP Chair Mark Shaw was twice rejected during voting on the convention floor. Shaw dropped out, opening the lane for White. Rhonda Belford, the Hardin County GOP chair, will replace DeMonte after the convention. “There are always going to be disagreements. You see that among Democrats, too,” DeMonte told Playbook after the convention. Her take: “There wasn’t any disunity.” If you are Mark Shaw, Playbook would like to hear from you.

— Next Version of E-Verify Will Bring Big Changes – Roy Maurer (COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) promote illegal immigration big time and b) vehemently oppose E-Verify.)
https://www.shrm.org/topics-tools/news/talent-acquisition/everify-plus-big-changes-2024-pilot
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The proposed features for the newest version of E-Verify would fundamentally change the way employment eligibility verification is conducted, according to a proposal from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). E-Verify NextGen—scheduled for release in 2024—integrates the Form I-9 process with E-Verify, the government’s electronic employment verification system, and shifts much of the process away from HR and to the new hires themselves. Employers must currently complete a new Form I-9 for each new hire and enter the information into E-Verify if they are enrolled in the program. “The proposed changes are significant,” said John Fay, an attorney and director of product strategy at Equifax Workforce Solutions. Fay was able to participate in a demo of the product. Using E-Verify NextGen, new hires would electronically enter their biographic information, citizenship or immigration status, and acceptable identity documents into E-Verify using their myEverify secure personal account. Once the employee’s identity and employment eligibility are confirmed by the system, the employer would be notified and can finish the verification by examining the documents—remotely, if taking advantage of the new alternative verification option. The submitted information will be used to create a completed Form I-9 available for download and storage by the employer. The current process relies on employer participation to correctly enter information on the Form I-9 and then transcribe that information into E-Verify, a practice which is less secure and sometimes results in data entry errors which can result in E-Verify mismatches, Fay said. “The idea behind NextGen is that the employee will be less likely to make a mistake with their own data,” he said. In addition, new hires would be notified if further action is needed to determine their employment eligibility, removing the employer’s primary role in the mismatch resolution process. Employees would receive notification of and resolve E-Verify mismatches directly with the government without requiring the employer to be an intermediary. This would create a more secure and private process that can speed up case resolution, according to USCIS. “The fact that employers are not involved in the process may sound appealing, but I know that employers have a vested interest in the verification process and will want to have a role in the process, so that could be an issue,” Fay said. Another new development is that employees would be able to carry their verification status with them when they change jobs. Currently, employees and employers must complete a new Form I-9 and enter a new E-Verify case—if an employer uses E-Verify—each time the employee starts a new job. “A key feature of NextGen is to allow employees to save their information in their myE-Verify account to be used for future employers,” USCIS said. “Once they receive their unique reference code from a new employer, the employee can simply update their information if necessary and complete the NextGen process with their new employer.” Fay said this feature—which still needs to be worked out in practice—is a common-sense approach. “If I’m a U.S. citizen and change jobs as much as some people do these days, why do I have to continually go through employment verification?” he asked. Overall, Fay said that E-Verify NextGen will be very useful for those employers still completing I-9s on paper. “For them, if they are also using E-Verify, it is a very manual process,” he said. “This will be a more seamless experience.” But Fay said that he’s not sure if E-Verify NextGen is the best option for larger employers because it doesn’t offer everything that an electronic I-9 system does. “Without a true electronic I-9 system, you still have to store the forms somewhere, you still have to do reverifications, you still have to make corrections and purge forms,” he said. “NextGen does not do any of those things. For many larger organizations, the electronic I-9 process is connected to the onboarding technology, the applicant tacking system, the payroll provider, which are all part of an integrated workflow. NextGen is not there yet but it’s good to see the government is moving in that direction.” E-Verify Required for Some E-Verify is voluntary except for federal contractors and in certain states which require all employers to use it, including Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. But evidence shows that E-Verify compliance is rarely enforced at the state level. Those employers not using E-Verify will still be required to complete the Form I-9 for new hires. Experts believe that the process enhancements included in NextGen are meant to be an incentive for more employers to voluntarily use the system. “The government is absolutely signaling to employers to consider using E-Verify because it can make the onboarding experience smoother,” Fay said. “It also plugs in nicely with the new alternative virtual procedure.” E-Verify NextGen will not replace the standard version of E-Verify for the time being and E-Verify employers will be able to choose which process they will utilize—the current E-Verify process or the NextGen version.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Far too many of those who want to keep the current in-house system for electing Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members destroy those like me who promote direct election of IRP SCC members.

I have promoted direct election of IRP SCC members big time since I became a Republican Precinct Committeeman in 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor in 2000. I served on the teams that fought for direct election at the IRP State Conventions in 2008 and 2012.

I should write a book about those who oppose direct election the most and who because of that have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me..

I would focus on those who reject the most planks in the IRP platform. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who have their operatives and their dupes do their dirty work.

I would focus on past and present leaders of the IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO).

I would focus on those a) who removed me from the 2024 IRP State Convention Party Platform and Resolutions Committee, b) who ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, c) who ended my bid to be selected to fill a Wheaton City Council vacancy in 2019, d) who gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, e) who ended my chairmanship of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois in 2012, f) who ended my membership on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee in 2011, g) who ended my service as the MTRO webmaster in 2010 and 2004, h) who ended my membership on the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee in 2007, i) who almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, j) who ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004, and k) who ended my membership on the American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors in 2004. – Dave Diersen

— Become A Precinct Committeeman – Steven Carr, Glen Rock, PA (COMMENT: I should write books about the success that Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs have had since 2000 in infiltrating, infesting, taking over, conquering, and destroying the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.)
https://libertylens.news/articles/letters/2024/05/10/become-a-precinct-committeeman/
(FROM THE LETTER: By becoming a Republican Committeeman for your local county or State Republican Party, you can vote on County bylaws and help elect better county and state party leadership of the republican party and local county GOP. Plus, get out the vote for better MAGA and America First candidates to get on the ballot and get more republican voters to your very own voting precinct and change the republican party from inside the party by recruiting more precinct committeeman to the republican party to outnumber the moderates in the republican party. No precinct committeeman? No republican party. It’s that simple. There are over 200,000 empty precinct committee seats in the Republican party that need to be filled. If you need more information on becoming a precinct committeeman, go to Dan Schultz’ website PrecinctStrategy.com. The Precinct Committeeman is the most powerful office in the country because we help get the candidates on to the primary ballot and endorse candidates and can even primary candidates off the ballot. Plus, we elect leadership all the way up to the RNC Chair.)

— Job seekers, frustrated with corporate hiring software, are using artificial intelligence to craft cover letters and résumés in seconds, and deploying new automated bots to robo-apply for hundreds of jobs in just a few clicks. In response, companies are deploying more bots of their own to sort through the oceans of applications. – Lindsay Ellis (COMMENT: What did you stress that got you hired? GAO audits IRS. In my 1980 GAO Analyst application, I stressed a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years as a Revenue Officer, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do and what GAO Analysts do is very similar, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and e) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. The Democrats who ran GAO ignored/dismissed/belittled/badmouthed the aforesaid by forcing me to suffer a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer.)

— What You Aren’t Hearing About Marijuana’s Health Effects. Bertha Madras, a leading expert on weed, outlines the science linking it to psychiatric disorders, permanent brain damage, and other serious harms. – Allysia Finley (COMMENT: Democrats ever-increasingly push more pot.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/what-you-arent-reading-about-marijuana-permanent-brain-damage-biden-schedule-iii-9660395e
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Young people who smoked marijuana in the 1960s were seen as part of the counterculture. Now the cannabis culture is mainstream. A 2022 survey sponsored by the National Institutes of Health found that 28.8% of Americans age 19 to 30 had used marijuana in the preceding 30 days—more than three times as many as smoked cigarettes. Among those 35 to 50, 17.3% had used weed in the previous month, versus 12.2% for cigarettes. While marijuana use remains a federal crime, 24 states have legalized it and another 14 permit it for medical purposes. Last week media outlets reported that the Biden administration is moving to reclassify marijuana as a less dangerous Schedule III drug—on par with anabolic steroids and Tylenol with codeine—which would provide tax benefits and a financial boon to the pot industry. Bertha Madras thinks this would be a colossal mistake. Ms. Madras, 81, is a psychobiology professor at Harvard Medical School and one of the foremost experts on marijuana. “It’s a political decision, not a scientific one,” she says. “And it’s a tragic one.” In 2024, that is a countercultural view.)

In my defense, I have stressed a) that my parents never attended college, b) that my father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma, c) that he never earned more than $50.000/year in today’s dollars, d) that he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, e) that he died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21, f) that my mother never attended high school, and g) that I had to work my way through college. I should write a book about mt critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents had lots of money, who bought them cars, who paid for their college expenses, and/or who got them jobs.)

Now that my critics/opponents have succeeded in removing me from the Illinois Republican Party State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee, what should I do promote the following in the new platform:


— Personal responsibility, that is, to oppose the promotion of dependency on government and charity,
— Traditional marriage and family, that is, to oppose the promotion of LGBTQ,
— Right to life, that is, to oppose the promotion of abortion,
— E-Verify and enforcement of immigration laws, that is, to oppose the promotion of illegal immigration,
— Second Amendment rights, that is, to oppose diminishment of those rights,
— Discouragement of vices, that is, to oppose the promotion of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Equal opportunity, that is, to oppose race and gender based preference giving, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, and
— Direct election of Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee members? – Dave Diersen

Trump has begun to remove his posts after being held in contempt. Should I write about those who demand that I remove my opinions from www.gopillinois.com ? For example, should I write about those who demand that I remove my opinion that “Because of what happened at the 2016 IRP State Convention, I am very concerned that efforts are underway under the table to water down if not officially strike the planks in the IRP platform that promote personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, E-Verify and enforcement of immigration laws, Second Amendment rights, discouragement of vices, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving).” Those who made that demand succeeded in having me removed from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee. – Dave Diersen

If you were me, what would you do? I want to help elect the candidates who won the March 19, 2024 Republican primary in my precinct to win on November 5, 2024. But since 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted at Republican candidates who won primaries in my precinct that the more that I do to help elect them, the more votes that they will lose. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I am much too conservative and even worse things, and that because of that, the more that I do to help elect a candidate the more evidence that candidate is “too conservative” and even worse things. Further, they stress the many big adverse actions that they got past and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois have taken against me. They will certainly stress to the candidates who won the March 19, 2024 Republican primary in my precinct including Booras, Grant, Berlin, Wang, Grogan, Jorgensen, Prater, Corrigan, Castle, Skarin, Hellad, and Costello that they succeeded in getting Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee member Jeanne Ives to remove me from the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee. In 2021, they succeeded in ending my role as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks, a role that I had since 2005. – Dave Diersen

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.)

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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: PEORIA, ILL (WICS)—Republican leaders and delegates have come together to discuss their strategy for this year’s general election.

The 41st Republican National Convention is July 18-21st in Cleveland, Ohio. This is the first time the city has hosted since 1938.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A marathon Utah Republican Party convention finally ended close to midnight—six hours later than planned—and in the end, incumbents were left fighting more than sleep. State Rep. Phil Lyman soundly beat Gov. Spencer Cox in the GOP delegate vote, 68% to 32%, a margin that would have been enough to knock Cox out of the race altogether, had the governor’s campaign not collected more than 28,000 signatures to ensure his place on the primary ballot.)

— What are the best practices for handling conflicts of interest in journalism? (COMMEMT: Full disclosure. Since I became the GOPUSA Illinois Editor in 2000, I have always fully disclosed everything that might impact the decisions that I make to include and not include links to articles in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and any comments that I make on those articles. That includes that I am conservative, Republican, and a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999. That includes that I served as the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010, a delegate to the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020 Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Conventions, an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, and a member of the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee in 2008 in 2024.

That includes my demographics including that I am White, male, older (born in 1948), non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, no one manipulates me or dominates me. I am no one’s operative or dupe. I do not glorify and praise people. I do not pander to people. I do not cover up their wrongdoing. I do not give them money.)
https://www.linkedin.com/advice/0/what-best-practices-handling-conflicts-interest-journalism
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. The first step is to identify any potential conflicts of interest that may affect your reporting. . .2. Disclose relevant conflicts The second step is to disclose any relevant conflicts of interest to your editors and audience. You should be honest and transparent about any factors that may affect your objectivity or integrity as a journalist. You should inform your editors of any potential conflicts before you start working on a story, and seek their guidance and approval on how to proceed. You should also inform your audience of any relevant conflicts in your story, either in a disclaimer, an acknowledgment, or a footnote. This way, you can show your respect and accountability to your readers and viewers.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Comments for the next GOPUSA Illinois Editor – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

Politics is nasty/vicious. I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. Based on my experience doing that, my comments for the next GOPUSA Illinois Editor include:

— You will be blamed for all the defeats that Republican candidates in Illinois suffer and especially defeats suffered by candidates on ballots in your precinct.
— All your decisions to include or to not include links to articles in GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and all your comments on those articles will be criticized if not demonized, denigrated, and/or condemned.
— Ever-increasingly, distorted/misleading/false statements will be made about you and about your newsletters.
— Your motives and judgment will be ever-increasingly demonized, denigrated, and/or condemned.
— You will be expected to if not forced to be happily manipulated/dominated by, to glorify and praise, to pander to, to serve as an operative or dupe for, to cover up the wrongdoing of, and/or to give money to a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, your Republican party organization, your Republican township/ward party organization, and/or the candidates who they support in primary races and/or b) those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout where you live.
— Those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout where you live will ever-increasingly take more/bigger adverse actions against you.
— The more that you promote the following planks in the Republican Party platform, the faster that you will be destroyed: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving).
— You will be insulted/threatened/slandered/labeled for negligently/intentionally “spreading inside information.”
— All your accomplishments in life will be ignored/dismissed/belittled if not demonized, denigrated, and/or condemned.
— If you do not have a degree in journalism, that will be stressed.
— If you are conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time, you will be ever-increasingly painted as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.
— Ever-increasingly, you will be “kept out of the loop” and your phone calls will not be taken or returned.
— Ever-increasingly, your critics/opponents will ever-increasingly discourage everyone from reading your newsletters.
— Because you are a messenger that brings bad news, you will be shot.
— Those who come to your defense will be destroyed.
— You and your reputation will be destroyed.

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?

DAILY MAIL
— Trump slams Biden’s ‘blasphemous’ move to celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter Sunday, with ban on decorating eggs with religious imagery stoking further fury. Trump slammed Biden for his ‘years-long assault on the Christian faith’ and said his Easter tradition-busting decisions are ‘appalling and insulting’ The White House banned any children’s Easter Egg Roll design entries with ‘questionable content,’ including religious symbols and political statements. Biden’s decision to make this Easter Sunday ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’ brought widespread backlash among conservatives. – WILL POTTER

— Elite schools are starting to require SAT scores again. Good. – David Blobaum (COMMENT: I was able to get an ACT score of 24 thanks to my outstanding parents who sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod, and to Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966. Neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I was able to get that score even though instead of studying, I washed dishes for the minimum wage ($12.41/hour in today’s dollars) in the basement of the S.S. Kresge in Chicago Heights evenings and Saturdays during my junior and senior years at Crete-Monee and full-time during the summer of 1965. I used the money that I earned and saved to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint, a poor man’s GTO, in May of 1966 to commute to/from classes at UIC.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/immigration/2024/03/30/migrants-move-chicago-park-district
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Torres said the only reason they’re still relying on city shelters is because he hasn’t received federal authorization to work — a process that can drag on for months. “We need a work permit for everyone to be able to become independent from the shelters,” Torres told a reporter through a translator. “We are all in the shelters because we do not have a work permit to be able to depend on ourselves.” When asked what work he would like to do, he replied simply: “Anything.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Understanding the Democrats’ immigration strategy – Amil Imani
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/03/understanding_the_democrats_immigration_strategy.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Democrats’ unrelenting focus on immigration, particularly the issue of uncontrolled immigration, is cause for concern that goes beyond mere debate and speculation. Beneath the surface, posturing lies a deception that extends beyond the mere games of representation and power in the United States. The Democrats’ emphasis on immigration is not a mere coincidence or a short-term political maneuver. Rather, it is deeply rooted in their long-term vision of reshaping the demographic and political landscape of the United States. By advocating for more inclusive immigration policies, the Democrats aim to solidify their support base and gain a strategic advantage in future elections.)

— Washington Post takes aim at ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ writer Francis Scott Key after namesake Baltimore bridge collapse. Because of his mixed record on racial issues, monuments to Key have been defaced, and critics have called for institutions named after him to be renamed. – Madeline Martin
https://thepostmillennial.com/washington-post-takes-aim-at-star-spangled-banner-writer-francis-scott-key-after-namesake-baltimore-bridge-collapse
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Wednesday, however, the Washington Post decided that there was a more important discussion to be had. You see the bridge collapse and the deaths and the horror and thee economic impact don’t translate to racial injustice, inclusivity or reparations and that simply would not suffice for the newspaper darling of the leftist gestapo. And so it followed that the Washington Post frankensteined together their own special contribution to the annals of history that will one day recount the tragedy. The issue here was the man who the bridge was named after, one Francis Key Scott. This was the real meat of the story, the rest just gristle and unsavory bits to be butchered out by WaPo the Woke. And so by Wednesday, the Washington Post’s London correspondent Annabelle Timsit had penned an article titled “Who was Francis Scott Key, controversial poet the bridge is named after?” Francis Scott Key is best known for writing the poem that became America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” He wrote the lyrics the morning after an 1814 British attack on Fort McHenry, which is right by the collapsed bridge. “As The Washington Post previously reported, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ did not become the national anthem until more than a century after it was written because of controversy, partly over Key’s racist views,” the Post wrote. “One section of the poem’s third verse, in particular, has come under scrutiny from those who say it was intended to mock or threaten African Americans who escaped slavery to join the British forces, after being promised land in exchange for their service,” the paper continued. The verse in question reads, “No refuge could save the hireling and slave, From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And The Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave, O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” The Post also reminded readers that Key was a slave owner who opposed abolition and made racist remarks about black people. However, the paper also acknowledged that critics have pointed out that as a lawyer, Key defended several slaves, and he freed several of his own slaves. Because of his mixed record on racial issues, monuments to Key have been defaced, and critics have called for institutions named after him to be renamed. In 2017, vandals defaced the Francis Scott Key Monument in Baltimore with red paint and spray-painted “Racist Anthem” and “blood on his hands.”)

But Haley dropped her bid after losing every primary contest except Vermont and Washington, D.C. Before Haley ended her campaign, Murkowski told NBC News that she wasn’t sure how she’d approach the presidential election if Haley dropped out — and signaled she wasn’t alone in her uncertainty. “Lisa Murkowski is not the only one in this camp right now,” she said. Murkowski is among the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial after the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack and became a target for Trump and his allies.)

I would focus on my Democrat superiors in the federal government. Gattis died on July 5, 1967 from injuries he suffered in his first deployment in Quang Tri province. My critics/opponents stressed that unlike Gattis who enlisted, I avoided the Vietnam War draft with student deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. When Gattis died, I was working for the Park Forest Post Office, earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System pension, and driving a 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint. My critics/opponents stressed that I paint myself as being conservative, Republican, and patriotic. They stressed that because of my health problems, if I had not avoided the draft, I would not have been sent into combat anyway. I could not run because I had a bone disease, my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, and I had partial red/green color blindness. They painted me as being a big coward and a big hypocrite. They stressed that because I avoided the draft, I was able to buy a 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967 and a 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968 and that I drove that Charger from NIU to Florida for spring breaks in 1969 and 1970. They called me “Daytona Dave.” The Vietnam War did not end until April 30, 1975. Prior to then, while my peers were dying in Vietnam, I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. I bought a new 1972 Covette in 1971. I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972. I bought a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974. I got promoted to GS-12, currently $97,079/year, in 1974. I completed 13 graduate evening business courses at Loyola. I went on vacations to the Bahamas, Hawaii, Mexico, and Jamaica.)

To have money to buy cars and to pay for college expenses, I a) did yard work 1962-1964, b) delivered newspapers 1962-1966, c) washed dishes 1964-1966, d) cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, e) delivered mail 1966-1969, and f) worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970. If there had been as many illegals back then as there are now, they would have gotten the jobs that I got. If I still would have gotten those jobs, my salaries would have been lower because illegals drive salaries down for bad jobs.)

WIREPOINTS
— ‘708’ mental health taxing boards: Are Illinois voters schizoid or just depressed? – Mark Glennon
https://wirepoints.org/708-mental-health-taxing-boards-are-illinois-voters-schizoid-or-just-depressed-wirepoints/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why would anybody in Illinois vote to create a new taxing authority to add to property tax bills? With property taxes being the second highest among the states and with polls consistently saying they are a top voter concern, you wouldn’t think such a thing could pass in a referendum anywhere the state. But many Illinois townships and counties vote to do just that, creating what are called “708 boards.” The boards are specifically empaneled to address local mental health needs and can only be created by local voter referendums. Some 90 of them now exist, according to a group called Advocate for 708. Proponents say they help fill gaps in available mental health services. Panel members are appointed by township or county boards, which also approve grants. The 708 boards are taxing jurisdictions with their own power to levy a local property tax of up to 0.15% of assessed value. The cap is set by state law. That’s typically a small amount for an average homeowner, supporters say – “less than the price of a weekly cup of coffee ($1.85),” according to Advocate for 708. Illinois, however, is already notorious for the number of different units of government it has – 8,923 by one count – far more than any other state. A new 708 panel means another line item on property tax bills.)

Those adverse actions include a) forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, c) not promoting me, d) delaying my promotions, e) forcing me to suffer a big pay cut to transfer, f) disallowing my education deductions, travel vouchers, and sick leave requests, g) firing me, and h) forcing me to resign. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat and especially if I had been a minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. And even more especially if a) I had not complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, and b) I had not become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation in 1988.)

https://news.wttw.com/2024/03/21/chicago-officials-slowly-evicting-migrants-city-shelters-johnson-resists-pressure-reverse
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago officials evicted 15 migrants from city shelters through Wednesday, far fewer than expected less than a week ago, as Mayor Brandon Johnson resisted new calls to reverse course. Since city officials began enforcing the 60-day limit on shelter stays imposed by Johnson, eight people were evicted on Sunday and Monday, with another seven evicted on Wednesday, according to city data. It was unclear whether anyone would be evicted Thursday. The most recent evictions came on the same day that Ald. Andre Vasquez (40th Ward), the chair of the City Council’s Committee on Immigrant and Refugee Rights, renewed his call for the mayor to scrap the limit entirely and step up efforts to care for the men, women and children who made their way to Chicago from the southern border. “The city should not be in the business of handing out evictions,” Vasquez said Wednesday morning. “No one in need of shelter, whether they are newly arrived or whether they were born and raised here, should ever face the fear and instability of being evicted from a city shelter knowing they have nowhere else to go.”)

AMERICANS FOR TAX REFORM
— Few Americans Want to Work for Biden’s IRS (COMMENT: Potential IRS employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran should be advised that IRS will waste their career and get rid of them if they do not make GS-13 ($115,439) by age 25, GS-14 ($136,414) by age 30, GS-15 ($160,458) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($191,900) by age 40 and that extremely few IRS employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines. IRS offered me a GS-7 (currently $54,728) job as a Revenue Officer in 1971 when I was 22 because IRS could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran who would take the job. I had had earned a bachelor’s degree in management and passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970. I accepted the offer because I was unemployed. My Firestone Store boss had rudely fired me because I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. IRS could not offer me a job as a Revenue Agent because I had not taken enough accounting courses.)
https://www.atr.org/few-americans-want-to-work-for-bidens-irs-oddly-enough/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The official IRS watchdog released a report last week noting the IRS is not attracting qualified applicants for its “revenue generating” positions. In a March 11, 2024 report the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration wrote: “Additionally, the external applications that have been received are far below the IRS targeted goal and there is an overall shortage of individuals with the desired background and experience, which has created further challenges in hiring.” And as noted by Government Executive magazine, referencing an Aug. 2023 TIGTA report: IRS had planned to bring on 3,833 revenue agents in fiscal 2023, but in the first six months officials had recruited just 34. Perhaps Americans are not attracted to employment with an agency that got caught illegally backdating penalty documents and signatures; an agency that got caught intentionally destroying 30 million tax forms submitted by taxpayers attempting to resolve their taxes; an agency unwilling or unable to protect sensitive personal information.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Global shipping executive Angela Chao had nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol in her system when she drove a Tesla into a pond and drowned in Texas, according to a law-enforcement report released Wednesday that concluded her death was an “unfortunate accident.” The chief executive of Foremost Group died Feb. 11 after putting her car in reverse and driving into the pond on her Texas ranch in Johnson City, according to the report by the Blanco County Sheriff’s Office. A toxicology test on Chao showed a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.23, the report said. The legal limit is 0.08 in Texas. While Chao was over the Texas limit for driving on public roads, her alcohol level at the time of death isn’t considered against the law because she was driving on private property, said Chief Deputy Robert Woodring with the sheriff’s office.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— The headlines should be “Trump crushes Haley.” With 97% of the precincts reporting, Trump got 469,586 votes statewide while Haley got only 83,525. With 100% of the precincts reporting, Trump got 35,944 votes in DuPage County while Haley got only 10,702 and Trump got 5,517 votes in Milton Township while Haley got only 2,330. What does that say to the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization? What does that say to the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee? It says that Illinois Republican voters reject Haley’s anti-Trumpism and that they reject “Democrat Lite.” What does Trump want to see in the new RNC platform and in the new IRP platform? I am on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee. – Dave Drersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
— How many cast Republican primary ballots in your precinct? How many votes did Trump and Haley get in your precinct? 128 (35%) of the 370 registered Republican voters in my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 59 in Wheaton cast Republican primary ballots. Trump got 86 votes while Haley got only32 votes. The rest of the races were uncontested. In those races, State’s Attorney Berlin was the high vote getter with 115. I got 109 votes. There is at least 1 registered Republican voter in 224 homes and 4 apartments in my precinct. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
— Of course, for the November 5, 2024 general election, I want to help elect those candidates who won the Republican primary in my precinct. Those candidates are Donald Trump, John Booras, Amy Grant, Bob Berlin, Jaye Wang, Bob Grogan, Richard Jorgensen, Nicole Prater, Annette Corrigan, Jeff Caste, Kenton Skarin, Jason Helland, and John Costello. But according to my critics/opponents, I am far too conservative and my demographics are terrible, and because of that, the more that I do to help elect candidates in general elections, the fewer votes that those candidates will get. If you were me, how would you deal with that? My critics/opponents reject the personal 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 in the Republican Party platform. My critics/opponents had their operatives and their dupes end my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021. – Dave Diersen

TEXAS TRIBUNE
— Texas GOP chair Matt Rinaldi won’t seek reelection. Rinaldi’s three-year tenure as chair of the GOP saw vicious infighting and historic gains for the state’s far right. – ROBERT DOWNEN (COMMENT: I should write a book about how the Illinois Republican Party has become more and more and more “Democrat Lite,” that is, more and more and more anti-conservative, that is, more and more and more anti-Republican.)
https://www.texastribune.org/2024/03/15/matt-rinaldi-texas-republican-chair-reelection/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican Party of Texas Chair Matt Rinaldi announced Friday that he will not seek reelection, ending a three-year tenure that was marked by an escalating GOP civil war, white supremacy scandal and historic 2024 primary gains for the party’s right wing. “After almost three years serving as Chairman, traveling the state and spending many long nights on the road, it is time for me to focus on my obligations as a husband to my wife, Corley, and as a father to my six-year-old son, Rush,” Rinaldi said in a Friday afternoon statement. “I ran for State Chairman on a platform of growing the party, increasing its influence and making it one that effectively amplifies the voice of grassroots Republicans. I am happy to report we were successful on all accounts.” Rinaldi has chaired the Texas GOP since 2021, when he was elected by the party’s executive committee to replace outgoing Chair Allen West. He was then reelected by delegates of the 2022 state GOP convention. His announcement comes amid an ongoing civil war between the Texas GOP’s far-right and more moderate, but still deeply conservative, wings. Rinaldi has been a key player in that fight as chairman, often accusing more moderate Republicans such as House Speaker Dade Phelan of being insufficiently conservative. A staunch ally of the party’s far-right wing and its billionaire funders, Rinaldi was particularly active in the 2024 primary elections, in which a dark-red wave swept many House incumbents out of office. Rinaldi noted the outcomes of the 2024 primaries in his Friday announcement, calling it a “political earthquake” that elevated “grassroots members” above “lobbyists, office holders and corporate donors.” Rinaldi also vowed in his statement to help elect his successor at this year’s state GOP convention. Minutes after Rinaldi announced his retirement, Abraham George announced he would run for party chair. Rinaldi — as well as Attorney General Ken Paxton and other Rinaldi allies — then endorsed George, who lost in his 2024 primary to Rep. Candy Noble, R-Lucas, by 5 percentage points. George will now face current Texas GOP Vice Chair Dana Myers to lead the party. Reaction to Rinaldi’s announcement was mixed — and emblematic of the Texas GOP’s internal strife. Paxton called him “tremendous,” and Rep. Nate Schatzline, R-Fort Worth, praised Rinaldi for “helping reform the party” before urging Republicans to support George’s run for chair. Others said his departure is an opportunity for the Texas GOP to change course. “While I wish Matt all the best, make no mistake that this is a great and welcomed opportunity for us to elevate and elect a conservative leader who will be laser-focused on uniting all Republicans around our shared mission of defeating liberals up and down the ballot in every corner of the state,” Rep. Jeff Leach, a Plano Republican and Rinaldi nemesis, told The Texas Tribune. Leaders of the Texas Democratic Party also blasted Rinaldi in a Friday evening statement, accusing him of “plunging the party into the depths of MAGA extremism” and “leading the charge to defund public education, curtail voting rights and restrict reproductive healthcare decisions for Texans.” Rinaldi served two terms in the House representing HD 115, north of Dallas, before losing in the 2018 general election to Rep. Julie Johnson, D-Farmers Branch. As a legislator, he was a reliable ally of the state’s far right and Tim Dunn and Farris Wilks, two West Texas oil billionaires who also bankrolled Rinaldi’s career in the House. Rinaldi was perhaps best known for calling immigration authorities on protesters during a House proceeding on a bill that cracked down on so-called “sanctuary cities.” As party chair, Rinaldi routinely amplified attacks against Phelan and other more-moderate members, castigating the speaker for allowing Democrats to chair a handful of House committees and accusing him of being drunk while presiding over House business last year. He also offered key support to Paxton during last year’s impeachment proceedings, and blasted Phelan and other House Republicans in the wake of Paxton’s acquittal by the Texas Senate. As the civil war escalated in the last months of 2023, some in the Texas GOP worried that Rinaldi had made the party too reliant on contributions from Dunn and Wilks. Rinaldi’s decision to endorse and campaign for challengers to fellow Republicans during this year’s primaries also drew the ire of some in the Texas GOP who said party leaders should be more neutral. Tensions over Rinaldi’s chairmanship came to a head late last year, following a scandal involving white supremacists and antisemites in the Texas GOP. In October, The Texas Tribune reported that Jonathan Stickland, then the leader of Dunn and Wilks’ main political action committee, Defend Texas Liberty, had hosted prominent white supremacist and Adolf Hitler admirer Nick Fuentes for several hours. Rinaldi was also spotted outside the office building while Fuentes was inside, but denied knowing he was there and said he would never meet with Fuentes. The meeting prompted Phelan and 60 other GOP House members to demand that fellow Republicans redirect donations from Defend Texas Liberty to pro-Israel charities. Roughly half of the Texas GOP’s executive committee also called on the party to cut ties with Defend Texas Liberty. Amid the scandal — and subsequent reporting by the Tribune that uncovered deeper ties between white supremacists and Defend Texas Liberty — Rinaldi routinely attacked the PAC’s critics, including Phelan. Earlier this year, the Tribune reported that Rinaldi was simultaneously working as an attorney for Wilks, one of Defend Texas Liberty’s two main funders. Responding to the scandals in November, the Texas GOP’s executive committee narrowly defeated a measure that would have banned the party from associating with Holocaust deniers, neo-Nazis and antisemites. Myers, the party’s VP who is running to replace Rinaldi, supported the measure. Rinaldi did not vote, but downplayed the need for it by saying that antisemitism was only a problem on the left. A watered-down version of the measure was adopted earlier this year. Dunn and Wilks meanwhile spun off a new political action committee, Texans United For a Conservative Majority, that backed a slate of successful candidates in the 2024 GOP primaries — giving the billionaires perhaps more power than ever over the Texas GOP and state Legislature.)
