NEWSMAX
— CPAC Poll: Newsmax ‘Most Trusted’ in Cable News – Fran Beyer (COMMENT: I would hope that GOPUSA ILLINOIS would be ranked “most trusted” by those in Illinois who support 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. The more of the aforesaid planks that my critics/opponents reject, the harder that they work against me. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who are working against me the hardest. In 2021, they ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks.)
https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/cpac-conservatives-straw-poll/2024/02/25/id/1154886/
(COMMENT: Newsmax was voted by the Conservative Political Action Conference the “most trusted” cable news outlet in America — trouncing rival Fox News by a whopping 34 points, according to a straw poll conducted at the annual conference. CPAC announced the findings of the survey Sunday after four days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Each year CPAC organizes the nation’s most influential conservative conference, drawing major political and celebrity figures weighing in on policy issues and political races. The CPAC poll findings showed: 49% said Newsmax, when asked which network do you “trust the most.”
Only 15% said the same about Fox News. 29% chose “none” of the options as a trusted outlet. Either CNN or MSNBC was the choice for 1% each.
The survey was conducted by McLaughlin & Associates from Wednesday to Saturday — with a total of 1,478 conservatives participating. Participants appeared to be happy about Newsmax but were less sanguine about Big Tech platforms and their leaders. Some 55% of CPAC attendees singled out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the Big Tech CEO “doing the most to undermine America.” Google CEO Sundar Pichai came in second at 32% with Amazon’s Jeff Bezos at 5% and Apple’s Tim Cook at just 1%. The survey also asked participants what was the best way to combat “woke elites.” Almost a majority, 46%, said it would be to “give to grassroots efforts to mobilize conservatives.” Some 25% said donating “directly to candidates for Congress” was the best approach. Participants completed the survey using a unique six-digit PIN code to eliminate multiple or outside voting.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

TEXAS TRIBUNE
— JUNE 18, 2022 FLASHBACK: Texas Republican Convention calls Biden win illegitimate – SEWELL CHAN AND ERIC NEUGEBOREN
https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

— White supremacy goes back to ‘early church’: Oxford professor – MICAIAH BILGER (COMMENT: In my defense, I have always stressed that all my ancestors have always lived in northeast Illinois.)
https://www.thecollegefix.com/white-supremacy-goes-back-to-early-church-oxford-professor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The most egregious thing that we have to wrestle with is the normalization of white supremacy,” Reddie said. Although Christianity “was created as a movement for those who are marginalized and oppressed,” he said white leaders quickly began using the religion as a weapon to seize land and oppress other cultures. Reddie traced the distortion back to the early Christians who blamed the Jews for killing Jesus, instead of Roman leader Pontius Pilate, according to the report. “Pilate represents white supremacy, and white supremacy now becomes normalized and effectively becomes the religion of Jesus, the religion of God,” the professor said. As time went on, more and more people began to believe Jesus was a white European, like them, Reddie said.
Baptist News Global reports: That’s why few white Christians flinched at the claim that Jesus called European and American Christians to travel the globe to oppress brown- and Black-skinned people, he said, explaining that a Christianity suffused with white supremacy enabled plantation owners in the American South to see no contradiction between their faith and owning other human beings. “They saw people who are other as inferior and that it was OK to kill or enslave them for their own good.” Those attitudes clearly continue to exist and in the U.S. are evident in the rise of Trumpism, the British scholar said. Because white supremacy has been connected with Christianity for so long, he said it has “distorted the very fabric of what we call Christianity and the nature of church.” The Baylor conference is part of a “three-year sequences of programs on confronting racism in the white church and seeking God’s justice,” according to the event website. More than a dozen pastors, theologians, and Christian leaders participated. Baylor is a private, Protestant Christian university in Texas. Earlier this year, a Catholic university professor also linked white supremacy with the early Christian church in a new book, “Christian Supremacy.” The author, Fordham University Professor Magda Teter, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that white supremacists’ ideology “is rooted in Christian ideas of social and religious hierarchy.”)

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2024/02/23/hostin-conspiracy-gop-only-support-ivf-stave-white
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Good things don’t last long on ABC’s The View. After defending embryos as children earlier in the week, staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) found her angle of attack against Republicans on Friday, in the wake of an Alabama Supreme Court ruling on in vitro fertilization. According to her, the only reason Republicans were now coming out in defense of IVF was because it was how they planned to stave off white people being replaced by minorities. “On the one hand, they want you to not have an abortion and then they also don’t want you to have more children. Make up your minds. Whatever that means,” Friday moderator Joy Behar kvetched, keeping with the narrative that the GOP was trying to stop people from using IVF, for some reason. Before cracking open the lid on her crazy conspiracy theory, Hostin suggested she was on the trail of something major. “I think they do want you to have more children and they just not saying the quiet part out loud,” she teased. “Which is, multicultural Americans are going to become the majority population by 2050,” she began to unwind her crazy. “By 2050, the Hispanic Americans are expected to have the most population growth, an increase of about six percent, while the white population is expected to decrease by about 11 percent. At this time, the birth rate for white Americans in this country has been falling since the great recession and it’s dropped almost 23 percent between 2007 and 2022.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scaman says Cook County is reimbursing the village for monthly expenses of more than $300,000. “At this point, we’re going to see all the money we invested,” she said. At its Jan. 23 meeting, Oak Park trustees authorized staff to pursue a grant of $1.9 million through the Illinois Department of Human Services and the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus. The village received notice the following week that grant was approved. The funding will be used to provide aid to asylum-seekers through June 30. That will enable the village to continue helping migrants in a different shelter because asylum-seekers staying at the Carleton and West Cook YMCA must leave by the end of February.)

WEDNESDAY JOURNAL
— The uncomfortable truth – Jonathan Panton
https://www.oakpark.com/2024/02/20/the-uncomfortable-truth/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some may live in denial, but entering the United States illegally is a crime. The village of Oak Park has continually used the term “asylum-seeker” to hide the truth. First, the term “asylum-seeker” is misleading. Applicants seeking asylum protection have the burden of (1) proving that they suffered past persecution or have a well-founded fear of future persecution; (2) the applicant is a member of a protected ground (race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, political opinion); (3) there is a connection between the harm the applicant suffered and their protected ground; and (4) the applicant either fears harm from the home country’s government or the home country is unable or unwilling to control a private person. INA§101(a)(42)(A). Asylum is designed to protect those who meet these four elements. In the fiscal year of 2023, asylum relief was denied in the majority of cases. While some individuals are genuinely escaping persecution, there are many others who unlawfully enter the United States for economic opportunities. This does not warrant asylum protection. The primary job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. In 2023, Customs and Border Patrol had 3,201,144 encounters with illegal immigrants. A serious concern is the lack of vetting of illegal immigrants in the United States. Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens stated on X (Twitter) that his agents arrested an average of 47 individuals every day in 2023 who had “serious criminal histories.” Moreover, those figures only included individuals who have been apprehended. In 2023, 860,000 “gotaways” unlawfully entered the United States. These individuals pose safety concerns since their criminal backgrounds and whereabouts are unknown to law enforcement agencies. Oak Park’s Village Board broke its duty to residents by approving a $1.9 million grant providing various services for immigrants, some of whom may be illegal. The $360,000 allocated toward giving illegal immigrants various legal services is wasteful. The role of the government is to provide public services like police, fire, roads, schools. I don’t recall the village paying for residents’ legal services spent appealing their outrageous property tax bills. Yet Oak Park has no issue doling out money for legal representation to individuals whose first act in the United States may have been a crime.)

DAILY HERALD
— Both parties agree immigration policy failing – Tonia Khouri, Naperville Township Republican Organization Chairman
https://www.dailyherald.com/20240211/letters-to-the-editor/both-parties-agree-immigration-policy-failing/
(FROM THE LETTER: The crisis at our southern border is being politicized by the media to further the partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats. Both parties agree the anonymous uncontrolled mass entry of millions of migrants is adversely affecting states, counties, cities and local communities, posing a growing risk of enduring consequences. As a nation proud of its immigrant heritage, Naperville Township values diversity and espouses generosity towards charity and helping those in need. For 3 years the Biden Administration’s border policy has negligently overlooked the surge of migrants. Bipartisan concerns have fallen on deaf ears of state and federal leadership. In these challenging economic conditions, taxpayers can’t afford the unsustainable financial burden and unintended consequences we will face due to the influx of migrants. The challenges posed by the influx of migrants remain unaddressed, with no viable solutions or responses in sight: How do you expect educators to run their classrooms when overwhelmed with an influx of migrant children with different languages and backgrounds who are required to be educated without any additional resources? How do you expect medical providers to continue the quality, cost and availability of care that our community relies upon when healthcare must account for an enormous influx of migrants into our local healthcare system? How can our elected officials guarantee our safety when additional strain is placed on law enforcement and judicial system by this influx of migrants without support? Our responsibility to stand up for the well-being and future of our children, as well as the community, transcends political boundaries. Republicans and Democrats unite in acknowledging the failure of the Biden border policy. We endorse Republican candidates who offer practical solutions and seek lasting resolutions that protect our communities instead of jeopardizing them further.)

— You can thank a German immigrant for the start of the Naperville Public Library – STEVE METSCH and ANDREA FIELD
https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/02/08/the-way-we-were-you-can-thank-a-german-immigrant-for-the-start-of-the-naperville-public-library/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville Public Library has a rich history helped in large part by the generosity of James L. Nichols. Nichols, born in Germany in 1851, spoke his native tongue until age 12. He learned to speak English after he and his parents moved to America, living first in Albany, New York, and then moving to Illinois. Nichols earned a certificate to teach at a country district school by age 18, and later moved to Naperville in 1876 when he was 25. He graduated from North-Western College — now known as North Central College — in 1880. In 1882, Nichols was appointed chair of the college’s commerce department and four years later he published a textbook called “The Business Guide.” A huge success, his book had sold 3 million copies by 1917. In 1891, he left higher education to focus on running his publishing company, J.L. Nichols & Co. Nichols was just 44 when he died Aug. 18, 1895, but what he left in his last will and testament had a lasting impact on his adopted hometown. Nichols bequeathed $10,000 to the city of Naperville for the establishment of a library with the requirements that the city maintain it, supply its materials and provide employees for its continual use.)

A President who took deliberate actions to make the southern border weaker.
Congress and the media labeling a protest as an “insurrection” while calling actual riots, “peaceful protests.” The American people turning a blind eye to a President who clearly is suffering from dementia and pretending that everything is all right.)

I should write a book about those RINOs and their preference giving in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. Demographics that vote for Democrat candidates include: liberal/moderate, minority, female, younger, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.

https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/finance/average-income-dual-income-no-kids-duos/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every parent knows that kids are expensive. But in addition to shelling out more when you have offspring, parents also often earn less. This makes the little darlings doubly expensive. Here’s what you need to know about the income disparity between parents and those who are child-free. Couples Without Kids Earn More. Couples known as dual income, no kids — or DINKs as they’re sometimes called — earn more than couples with kids, even if both spouses work. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey Data, as analyzed by Rocket Mortgage, the average dual-income couple who has children has income of $129,000 per year. Two-income couples without kids averaged $9,000 more per year, for a total of $138,000 in annual income. Couples Without Kids Also Spend Less. In addition to having more time to spend on their careers and the increase in salary that comes along with that, couples without kids spend less simply because they aren’t feeding, housing, clothing and educating little people who aren’t contributing to the household income. According to the Institute for Family Studies, the cost to raise a child to adulthood ranges from $202,248 to $430,928. These added expenses coupled with reduced income result in a double whammy for parents. What Are DINKs Doing With All That Extra Money? The dual income, no kids crowd earns more and spends less, so where is that extra money going? Some of it is going to savings, with DINKs putting more aside for retirements than their colleagues who are parents.)
— Mark Cuban: Here’s Why I Don’t Spend Money on a Chauffeur or Cleaning Services – Josephine Nesbit (COMMENT: I am one of the fewer and fewer and fewer homeowners in Wheaton who fertilize, mow, and edge their lawns, trim their bushes, mulch/rake their leaves, shovel their driveway and sidewalk, etc.)
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/mark-cuban-why-don-t-130059290.html
(FROM THGE ARTICLE: World-famous entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist Mark Cuban has a net worth of $4.7 billion, but even he doesn’t spend money on a chauffeur or cleaning services. On “The Really Good Podcast,” the billionaire told host Bobbi Althoff that he doesn’t have a butler, prefers to drive himself everywhere, and does his own laundry. While Cuban does have a personal chef in Dallas, he and his wife cook most of their meals. The video currently has over 2.5 million views on YouTube. Cuban said he drives himself because he enjoys the privacy when asked if he has a chauffeur. “I like the privacy. I’ve been around people who have hired somebody to do everything for them, and that’s just like no privacy,” he explained. “It’s hard enough to have privacy.” Cuban does own several houses and enjoys his private jets, which he says helps him save time. Cuban also said he tries to be the same person as when he was poor and rich and has kept most of the same friends. “When I was poor, I had a blast. I loved my life,” he explained. “I could wake up smiling and back then, you just had not to answer the phone because it could be a bill collector.” Earlier this year, Cuban told CBS’s Sunday Morning that he worked hard to keep his wealth from changing his personality and would be happy with 1% of his net worth. Born to working-class parents in Pittsburgh, Cuban didn’t grow up with the wealth he has today. When Althoff asked when he stopped being poor, Cuban said it was when he was 28 or 29 years old. “But when I was 27, I won’t forget it,” Cuban said. “I went to the ATM, and it showed me a big old zero. So that’s when I was 27. And then got past that, and then bam, bam, bam, bam, bam.”)

BREAKTHROUGH IDEAS
— December 31, 2023 Newsletter: The Sanctuary Problem
https://www.breakthrough-ideas.com/blog
(FROM THE NEWSLETTER: Here are some important questions to ask your uncurious elected officials: 1. How many “newcomers” have entered your schools in the last two years and how does that compare to the previous five years? 2. It is against the law for landlords to ask about immigration status. Do you have any way of tracking how many illegals are renting in the community or being otherwise housed by non-profits? 3. How many illegals are using local food pantries, and are they having supply issues? 4. What hard benefits are illegals receiving? Debit cards, transport, housing support? 5. What is the usage and cost of services at medical facilities by illegals, and are the organizations getting paid for the services, or is it documented as charity care? 6. Is there a separate tracking system the public can see that shows incidents of any crimes committed by illegals, and if not, why not? 7. What are our community’s specific responses to the migrant issue? 8. For state officials – How much is this costing? Who is getting the contracts for all the support? Is there a daily tracker on the costs and numbers of illegals?)

When I was young, applicants were needed for the following jobs: doing yard work, delivering newspapers, washing dishes, cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assembly line, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, collecting delinquent taxes, and auditing federal agencies. What jobs do illegals want? What jobs are they qualified to take? What jobs will be offered to them? What jobs will they take? According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, all the jobs that I took were bad jobs that they would never stoop to take. If offered the bad jobs that I took, will illegals take them or refuse to stoop to take them?)

In my defense, a) I earned a job-related professional license (CPA-1981), b) I earned six job-related professional certifications (forensic accounting-1997, financial services auditing-1996, government financial management-1994, fraud examination-1990, internal auditing-1981, and accounting-1979), and c) I earned three job-related graduate degrees (IIT-finance-1997, DePaul-accounting-1980, and Loyola-business-1976) and a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-management-1970).)

GAO
— GAO’s mission is to provide Congress with fact-based, nonpartisan information that can help improve federal government performance and ensure accountability for the benefit of the American people. (COMMENT: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, its mission was fighting government fraud, waste, and abuse. What is/were the missions of your employers? The importance of GAO’s mission helped me endure tremendous efforts by my Democrat GAO superiors to waste my career and to get rid of me. They forced me to take a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31. They gave me bad/unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals. They delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS12, and GS-13 and they never promoted me to GS-14. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. They would not have done the aforesaid if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Kane County Republican Party leadership issued a statement Saturday regarding the drop-off of 38 migrants on a bus sent from Texas on Dec. 21 at the Elburn Metra train station. The incident has been mirrored in other Chicago suburbs recently after the Chicago City Council passed an ordinance on Dec. 13 prohibiting buses from arriving and dropping people off in the city with no prior notice. “… Kane County witnessed yet another incident where busloads of migrants were callously dumped here from the U.S. border without prior warning or care for their well-being,” the statement said. “This is not an act of compassion but a systematic failure resulting in a criminal operation.” Signed by the Andro Lerario, chairman of the Kane County Republican Central Committee, the statement added, “This issue is no longer confined to the distant border; it’s happening right here in our neighborhoods.”)

ACCOUNTING TODAY
— The new shape of the CPA exam – Daniel Hood (COMMENT: Who do you know that passed CPA examination? My passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was a 30-year-old GS-12 IRS employee was one of my biggest accomplishments in my life. Only about 20% of those who take the examination pass it on their first attempt. But because I was conservative, Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors had been in America since 1844, a union member, a Crete resident 1948-1972, a Wheaton resident since 1978, and I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, my Democrat IRS superiors made it clear that they would never promote me to GS-13. Because of that, in 1980, I took a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10 to transfer to GAO. But my Democrat GAO superiors did not promote me to GS-13 until 1986 and that was after I had completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981.)

December 10, 2023

To stay up-to-date with news and commentary of interest to Illinois Republicans, what do my critics/opponents want you to read instead of my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters? My critics/opponents do not want anyone to read my newsletters; however, many of them read my newsletters for “opposition research.” Those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican but who reject many of the planks in the Republican Party platform that I promote in my newsletters do not want anyone to read articles that promote those planks. As everyone knows, I promote my direct newsletter competitors. But many of my direct newsletter competitors ignore, dismiss, if not belittle the planks that I promote. Further, many want cheap labor, that is, they want mass/illegal immigration. Again, what newsletters do my critics/opponents want you to read instead of my newsletters? What arguments do they make for that?

Further, they hint/imply/argue/shout that the federal government grossly overpaid me and that my federal pension is much too generous.)

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Historic Levels of Immigration: Who Decides? – RICH LOWRY (COMMENT: Democrat leaders want illegals because illegals vote for Democrats. RINO leaders want illegals because RINO leaders want cheap labor.)
https://www.nationalreview.com/2023/12/who-decided/
(FROM THE ARYTICLE: Historic levels of immigration shouldn’t be on autopilot. Do you remember the big national debate on whether the United States would adopt a policy to make the foreign-born share of the population the highest it’s ever been? Neither do I. For the simple reason, of course, that there wasn’t one. That doesn’t mean that the policy wasn’t adopted, through inertia and the Biden administration’s unilateral imposition of a de facto open border for a large swath of asylum seekers. An analysis of Census data by Steve Camarota and his colleagues at the Center for Immigration Studies has found that a 4.5 million net increase in immigrants since President Biden took office has boosted the share of the foreign-born to 15 percent, the highest ever recorded. You know all the black-and-white photos of immigrants coming to Ellis Island, the lore about names being changed upon arrival, “your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”? Today, we are eclipsing the “great wave” of immigration with an even greater wave. We hit 14.8 percent in 1890 and 14.7 in 1910, in what were, until now, the most historic decades for immigration. Just last month, the Census Bureau was still projecting the foreign-born share of the population wouldn’t hit 15 percent for another decade, in 2033. Now, we could keep going up from here. “If the immigrant population continues to grow,” Camarota writes, “it will set new numerical and percentage records every year going forward.” A straight-line projection shows the share of the foreign-born rising to 15.5 percent by the end of Biden’s term, and to an astonishing 17.3 percent by the end of a potential second term. This is not the normal course of business. According to Camarota, the foreign-born population has grown on average by 137,000 a month since the beginning of Biden’s term, higher than Donald Trump’s pre-Covid 42,000 and Barack Obama’s 68,000.)

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/congressional-hispanic-caucus-frustrated-white-house-immigration-rcna128828
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A number of Hispanic and Latino members of Congress, as well as advocacy groups, are becoming increasingly concerned that President Joe Biden may strike a deal with Republicans on immigration that they find unacceptable in order to secure passage of his high-priority Ukraine and Israel aid package. The fear, one Capitol Hill Democrat with knowledge of the negotiations said, is that the president will accept border policy changes proposed by Republicans that are “unimaginably cruel.” Democrats in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus demanded an “urgent” meeting with the White House over one week ago. Yet even though the president was in Washington for much of that period, it never happened.)

Of course, my critics/opponents deny that they hate me because of any of my demographics: conservative, Republican, White, male, old (born in 1948), draft avoider, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, union member for almost 12 years, federal employee for almost 30 years (9 of which IRS), federal retiree for more than 26 years, Crete resident for 24 years, Wheaton resident since 1978, etc.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even though former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been a pit bull in attacking Donald Trump during the Republican presidential primary season, he told Newsmax Friday it is not because of any personal animosity against the former president. “Let me make it clear: I don’t hate Donald Trump,” Christie told “Eric Bolling The Balance.” “I just don’t believe he’s fit to be president of the United States. There’s a big difference between that. There’s no personal hatred on my part at all.”)

— Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters ever-increasingly demonize, denigrate, and condemn Santos as being like Trump. The more demographics that you share with Trump, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters demonize you, denigrate you, and condemn you as being like Trump. Since 2015, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their operatives have stressed that I share the following demographics with Trump: conservative, Republican, White, male, old (I was born in 1948), draft avoider, non-poor, married, gun owner, Protestant, German American, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time.

— Isn’t It Time to Rid Ourselves of Political Parties? – Jabari Simama (COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. Ever-increasingly, the more of the following planks in the Republican Party platform that Republican candidates and elected officials support, the harder that leaders of Republican organizations in Illinois work against them: a) individual responsibility, b) traditional marriage and family, c) right to life, d) immigration, e) illegal drugs, f) Second Amendment, and/or g) equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). I should write a book about that.)

FORBES
— 10 Job-Seeking Strategies That Work – Carmelina Piedra (COMMENT: If you had been me, what job-seeking strategy would you have used after my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old? How would you have dealt with that adverse action and their previous adverse actions? They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They never promoted me to GS-14 and they delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13. They assigned me to audits of IRS for only 3 (1986-1988) of the almost 18 years that I worked for them. They forced me to take a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS in 1980, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10. They ignored, downplayed, dismissed, belittled a) my becoming a Certified Forensic Accountant in 1997, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Government Financial Manager in 1994, and Fraud Examiner in 1990, b) my becoming a licensed CPA in 1981, c) my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981 and my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) my earning a master’s degree in finance from IIT in 1997, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) my having worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279-$104,583/year.)
