POLITICO ILLINOIS
— SCOOP: Republican Steve Kim is throwing his hat in the ring to challenge Democratic Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, nearly rounding out a Republican slate for the June 28 primary. Kim is a familiar name on the political scene, having challenged Democratic AG Lisa Madigan when she ran for reelection in 2010. Kim was also the running mate to Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Rutherford in the 2014 primary contest that ultimately went to Bruce Rauner. A source close to Kim’s campaign said he would be part of a slate that includes state Rep. Tom Demmer for treasurer, former U.S. Attorney John Milhiser for secretary of state, and McHenry County Auditor Shannon Teresi for auditor, who announced yesterday. Don’t be surprised if Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin leads the slate as the gubernatorial candidate. These candidates aren’t the only Republicans running for statewide offices, but by teaming up they hope to have an advantage securing a statewide seat (or seats) that are now controlled by Democrats. Abby Witt, executive director of the Democratic Party of Illinois, calls the slate a “Rauner Reboot” that’s being run by Ken Griffin. Actually, Griffin has so far kept out of the statewide races — though he’s acknowledged wanting to defeat Gov. JB Pritzker. For his part, Kim said the AG job is “critical to repairing the state’s reputation as a haven for crime and public corruption.” And like Teresi did yesterday, he invoked Michael Madigan, the former House speaker, in his remarks, saying, “Under JB Pritzker and Mike Madigan, Springfield remains a cesspool run for the benefit of the politicians and insiders and not the people of Illinois.” Kim, born in South Korea, is an attorney with an expertise in international issues. He was an adviser to former Gov. Jim Edgar on trade and Asian affairs, a trustee in Northfield Township, and an international affairs director for the State Chamber of Commerce. He also serves as a member of the Rules Committee of the Illinois Supreme Court. In the private sector, Kim worked on internal and external affairs with Ameritech, now AT&T, while going to law school at night. After earning his law degree, Kim was VP of government and public affairs at Time Warner. He’s since practiced law at a boutique firm that advises small- and medium-size companies. . .Republican Cook County Commissioner Peter Silvestri won’t seek reelection: He was first elected in 1994. “I’m thinking that there’s other things I want to do, like maybe teach or practice more law … and just have more time with my friends and family,” Silvestri said in a phone interview with the Tribune’s Alice Yin. “I hope that my legacy is that I tried to represent the people of our area to the best of my ability, understanding the social and financial limitations that government has.” . . .Pete DiCianni has been unanimously endorsed by the Addison Township Republican Organization for DuPage County Board chairman. Di Cianni currently serves as the commissioner of the 2nd District. – Shia Kapos

DAILY HERALD
— Top Kane County GOP official calls election precinct redraw ‘a farce’ – James Fuller
(COMMENT: What have the following told your Republican Precinct Committeeman about the redraw: a) the chairman of your Republican township party organization, b) the chairman of your Republican county party organization, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, and d) the IRP chairman?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220107/top-kane-county-gop-official-calls-election-precinct-redraw-a-farce
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A behind-the-scenes process of redrawing election precincts in Kane County sparked concerns Friday about election integrity and what will be one of the shortest primary election campaign seasons in recent history. Recent state legislation approved in the wake of the decennial redistricting effort requires counties to redraw election precinct boundary lines by Jan. 15. The changes will affect every race on the 2022 ballot. New rules require precincts to sit within a single congressional and state legislative district whenever possible as well as a single county board district and municipal ward. Many counties regularly split or merge precincts to avoid them becoming too large or small for Democrat and Republican Party committeemen to properly represent constituents on partisan matters. Party committeemen are the foot soldiers of local political parties. The influence of those roles carries particular intrigue for local Republicans who are loyal to former President Donald Trump and continue to support the debunked claims of fraud in the 2020 election. The 2022 elections bring an opportunity for Trump loyalists to take control of the local party. Which voters live in which precincts will be a factor in that GOP battle. Kane County hasn’t adjusted its 291 precincts in nearly 20 years. That’s created 28 precincts that contain far more registered voters than the 1,200-voter cap target suggested by state legislation. Multiple precincts contain fewer than the 500 registered voters state law suggests is too small for a stand-alone precinct. A self-appointed team of workers in the county clerk’s office, information technology department, graphics information system staff, lawyers in the state’s attorney’s office and the chairman of the county board’s public service committee have spent the past several weeks redrawing the precinct boundaries. Kane County Board Chair Corinne Pierog has also been involved. She serves as vice chair of the Kane County Democrats. Except for Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham, who is a Republican, all the elected officials involved so far are Democrats. The public will get a look at the redrawn precincts on Tuesday. There will be a final vote on the remap Friday, one day before the state deadline. That’s not enough review or involvement in the process for several GOP members of the county board. “It’s a farce to suggest this committee has had any role or involvement in this at all,” said Ken Shepro, a county board member and chairman of the Kane County Republican Party. “No member of this committee has been asked to participate in any of these meetings or give any guidance.” Fellow Republican Tom Koppie said the process and the tight deadlines mean the county board will be “forced to accept maps generated by the bureaucracy.” “I do not believe this is what the voting public anticipated or expects,” Koppie said. Anita Lewis, a Democrat on the board who tends to side with Republicans, questioned the process. “And I’m not going to be able to say beyond a shadow of a doubt that everything was done right,” Lewis said. “I just don’t have that comfort level.” Even if the county board approves the new precinct boundaries next Friday, the county staff said it may take up until the first week of February to have maps paired with voter rolls that will allow candidates to collect accurate petition signatures. Petition filing for candidates seeking the top ballot spots is March 7. Candidates normally have 90 days to circulate petitions. Both county board members and the clerk’s office staff said they expect more petition challenges to kick candidates off the ballot because of the tight window and an increased likelihood of signatures from people who find themselves in different precincts.)

They would use the aforesaid to paint me, paint my brother, paint my parents, paint my grandparents, paint my great grandparents, and paint the rest of my ancestors as being racists and even worse things.)

NEW YORK POST
— ‘Minority privilege’ now more common amid the growing ‘war on whiteness’ – Rav Arora
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors replaced me with my Black subordinate. In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. How soon, if not already, will your employer if you are still employed, the organizations that you are a member of, the governments that you are under, etc. officially announce that they getting rid of Whites once and for all, except those Whites who help them get rid of Whites? Of course, the first Whites to be gotten rid of are Whites who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about Whites who get rid of other Whites. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.)
https://nypost.com/2022/01/08/minority-privilege-is-now-more-common-than-white-privilege/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The left is furious about “white privilege.” And while it’s true white people have benefited from major advantages over time, it’s a concept that is rapidly fading — especially now, as the reverse is coming true. Minorities are increasingly becoming privileged while growing numbers of white people face discrimination. Diversity initiatives have been around for years, but over the past year and a half, innumerable companies and corporations have ramped up their efforts with the goal of “diversifying” their workforce. Tech giant Facebook, for example, has committed to half of its employees coming from “underrepresented communities” (i.e., black, Native American, and Hispanic) by 2023. Best Buy is hiring one person of color for every three new hires over the next five years. United Airlines has promised that at least half of the pilots they will train in the next decade will be women and “people of color” (currently, only 13 percent of pilots are people of color). In May, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot suddenly declared she will only give interviews to “journalists of color” — something that would be an impeachable offense if the situation was reversed (only giving interviews to “white journalists”). The push to promote people of color has become so pervasive that the most objective scientific institutions have seemingly become captive to woke ideology. For example, the NIH and CDC use taxpayer dollars to incentivize biomedical research labs to hire ethnic minorities because “research shows that diverse teams working together and capitalizing on innovative ideas and distinct perspectives outperform homogenous teams” — without quoting or citing any actual research. Minorities are now even advantaged when seeking medical treatment. Last week, the New York City and state departments of health authorized life-saving antiviral treatment for COVID-19 for everyone belonging to a “non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity” regardless of risk factors, but for whites, only those with risk factors are allowed it. The DOH cites its rationale as: “longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.” Meanwhile, the rise of minority advantage has come with a parallel war on whiteness, especially in academia. In June, the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association — “one of the world’s most respected publications in psychoanalysis” — printed a peer-reviewed paper entitled “On Having Whiteness.” The abstract of the paper describes “whiteness” as a “malignant, parasitic-like condition” requiring “effective treatment consist[ing] of a combination of psychic and social-historical interventions.” It adds, “there is not yet a permanent cure.” There are real, accredited university courses that instruct anti-white racism: “Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness” (Arizona State University) and “Abolition of Whiteness” (Hunter College). Institutionalized anti-white bigotry has escalated to genocidal rhetoric. As Bari Weiss revealed in her recent Substack piece, Yale University hosted a lecture by Dr. Aruna Khilanani this year about the “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind,” where the speaker revealed her fantasies to kill white people. Other than university administrators later saying the lecture was found to have “tone and content antithetical to the values of the school,” the backlash was tempered. While social media erupted and Khilanani’s Manhattan-based practice is now closed for unknown reasons, she still has her license. One can only imagine the riotous demonstrations that would have reverberated across the country had Yale hosted a talk about “The Psychopathic Problem of the Black Mind.” The upshot is that pro-minority bias is not only permitted but socially incentivized. Employers, professors and administrators are lauded for implementing radical diversity initiatives. As minorities are preferentially hired across the board and given a host of other benefits by way of their genetic lottery, we must fundamentally reframe our discourse surrounding race relations. While “white privilege” may still exist in some margins of society, it no longer reflects the progressive era we live in.)

— Adding Missing Context to the Slavery Debate – DAN MCLAUGHLIN
(COMMENT: All my ancestors immigrated from what is now Germany during the 1840s and 1850s. In their defense, they always lived in northeast Illinois. On my father’s side, my great great grandfather worked in a brick factory in Chicago 1844-1854 and then he homesteaded a farm in Crete in 1854. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated a hardware store in Crete. My father worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. On my mother’s side, my great great grandfather was a sharecropper on a farm in Grant Park along the Indiana border. My great grandfather and my grandfather operated that farm. My mother was raised on that farm.)

(COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government; they get rid of federal employees who are Republican, and especially those who are conservative, White, male, older, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.military.com/daily-news/2022/01/07/army-officer-relieved-of-command-facing-discharge-over-racist-social-media-posts.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Spillane’s lawyer, Sean Timmons, managing partner with Tully Rinckey’s Houston office, agrees his client’s posts are indeed offensive, the discharge status raises the stakes — any status that isn’t honorable can have dire consequences for a veteran. So-called “bad paper” discharges can exclude a veteran from benefits, mostly the GI Bill; hurt employment opportunities; and overall leave the veteran with a stigma that’s difficult to shake off. Because of that, Timmons wants the Army to allow Spillane to leave with an honorable discharge.)

— AUGUST 4, 1997 FLASHBACK: DEPRESSION-ERA PROJECT HAUNTS CONSOLIDATION EFFORT – Bob Merrifield
(COMMENT: When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1997-08-04-9708040150-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Walt Williams, president of the Lincolnshire Country Club, sees the subdivision that never was as a historical relic. “At the time, a four-golf-course complex was planned,” Williams said. “Three of the four got built. Two are still in existence. “They were trying to make it into a resort community. I believe the Depression ended all that.” Esther Diersen of Crete, who owns one of the 40-foot lots, said she believes most owners have held on to the land for sentimental reasons or because it may eventually increase in value. Her lot was bought in the 1920s by an aunt of her late husband. “When Lincolnshire Country Club first started, everyone bought a small lot like that. For some reason I kept thinking it might be something the kids could realize something from. That’s the only reason I still have it.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220105/it-has-no-place-how-a-mundelein-area-woman-is-deleting-a-painful-relic-of-race-and-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For 40 years beginning in the late 1920s, it was not uncommon for restrictive covenant clauses to prohibit the sale or lease of property to certain racial or ethnic groups. That practice became illegal and unenforceable with the passage of the federal Housing Rights Act in 1968. But the offensive language has remained. Many property owners are unaware of such references in covenants associated with their property. And those who are have found it difficult to have them deleted.)

— 84% of Voters: Public Schools Should Teach Truth About Slavery – Scott Rasmussen
(COMMENT: According to this article, “42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy.” What percent of your school board members agree that schools should teach that “America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy?” What are the following doing to fight CRT, 1619, reparations, BLM, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination: a) Republican members of your school board, b) the leaders your Republican township/ward/county party organizations, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, d) the IRP leaders, e) Republican leaders of your chamber of commerce, park district, municipality, township, and county, f) your Republican state representative and state senator, g) etc.?)
https://www.newsmax.com/scottrasmussen/public-schools-slavery-founding/2022/01/06/id/1051337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters believe public schools should teach the truth about slavery. At the same time, a Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 81% believe public schools should teach that America was founded on the ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. Combining the results shows that 72% of voters believe both should be taught. Another question found that 42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy. Forty-four percent (44%) disagree. Overall, 40% believe students should be taught that America was founded on noble ideals, but not that the nation was founded on racism. Thirty percent (30%) believe both should be taught. Eleven percent (11%) say that the noble ideals should be taught and are not sure about racism. Nine percent (9%) believe schools should teach that the nation was founded on racism but not that it was founded upon noble ideals. Finally, 64% believe that schools should teach that America is a force for good in the world. Fifteen percent (15%) disagree and 21% are not sure. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of those who support Trump-like policies believe that students should be taught that America is a force for good. So do 73% of traditional Democrats and 70% of traditional Republicans. However, among those who support policies like those of Senator Bernie Sanders, just 42% think students should learn that America is a force for good. Thirty percent (30%) of Sanders’ supporters say that positive message should not be taught while 28% are not sure. Given a choice between four presidential candidates with equal skills and temperament, 31% would prefer a Republican who supported policies like those of President Trump. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% would prefer a Democrat who supported policies similar to Senator Bernie Sanders, 19% favor a more traditional Democrat, and 17% a more traditional Republican.)

— We didn’t solve racism in 2021. Here’s what we need to do now. The answer isn’t to ignore racism, no matter how tiring, scary, and difficult it may be. In fact, it’s the opposite: we need all of us to intentionally work towards change. – Sara Blanchard and Misasha Suzuki Graham

I do not hate Trump. This year, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters drew me into the same precinct with Jeanne Ives like they did in 2015. Last year, they stopped me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks. In 2020, they promoted BLM and LGBTQ big time in Wheaton.
