(FROM THE ARTICLE: Back when the Chicago Tribune was firmly ensconced in the Tribune Tower, one of my editors had a picture in his office, a picture of the newsroom decades earlier, a black-and-white view of a bustling place, hands blurry from typing, papers strewed across desks and the floor. The first time I saw it, the editor asked me, a faint smile on his face, if I noticed anything missing. “There are no women or Black people,” I said. He nodded. I think of that picture when newspaper folks wax nostalgic, when they deride the newsrooms of the 2020s, short on money and on staff. I think about that picture when readers complain about what we used to cover, what their newspapers used to contain.)

— COVID Hysteria Claims Another Victim – The DuPage County Fair – Mark Glennon
https://wirepoints.org/covid-hysteria-marches-on-to-claim-another-victim-the-dupage-county-fair-wirepoints/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You’d think she’d be embarrassed to admit to such a thing, but that’s what she told the New York Times when asked about all the prior thought and research she and her husband, Bill Gates, had put into developing their supposed expertise on pandemics. She might as well have been speaking on behalf of a large portion of the experts and politicians in charge of America’s COVID-19 response. They’ve been blind to the need to balance the direct risk of the virus, however small that risk may be in some circumstances, against the economic and indirect but enormous health effects of shutdowns. That blindness continues today. The most recent example is cancellation of the DuPage County Fair. As reported by ABC Chicago, fair officials said Governor J.B. Pritzker’s decision to delay the Bridge Phase of reopening led to the decision. It’s almost entirely an outdoor event. If there’s any empirical evidence that COVID presents a material risk in outdoor events like that, I haven’t found it. To the contrary, experts are now speaking up to say that outdoor activity is generally safe – “whether there are 10 COVID cases a day or 10,000 — even with variants of concern,” according to three experts writing in the Toronto Star. You can’t find empirical evidence showing a material risk because finding any solid examples out outdoor transmission is hard. “In reviewing the literature, very few cases of true outdoor transmission are noted, and many are associated with activity that includes a mix of both indoor and outdoor elements, like camps, barbecues and concerts,” they wrote. “These events represent a sliver of the overall cases, which are overwhelmingly acquired indoors.” “What we need to be thinking about at this point is harm reduction, not harm elimination,” said another infectious disease expert. If lower-risk outdoor socializing replaces higher-risk indoor gatherings, that’s a win-win. “People think any risk is something we don’t need to [take on]…. But those discussions detract from the harm-reduction part of the outdoors,” he said. County fairs can be a big deal for many people, especially farm families and the agriculture industry, though DuPage’s fair has included much more than agriculture in recent years. The DuPage County Fair has been a local tradition for over 180 years and is a source of livelihood for many people and businesses, officials there told ABC Chicago. But that apparently counts for nothing in the face of even the tiniest COVID risk. And the DuPage Fair wasn’t even scheduled to start until July 21! By that time, everybody who wants a vaccine almost certainly will have been able to get one, and over half of everybody else will have a high degree of natural immunity from prior infections. President Joe Biden announced a July 4 goal last month for getting the nation back to normal. That’s apparently proceeding ahead of schedule because he recently bumped up the target date for making all adults eligible for vaccination by two weeks to April 19. And DuPage County is doing particularly well on vaccinations, having the highest portion of its population vaccinated in the Chicago area. But they’ve cancelled the fair anyway.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Sen. Tammy Duckworth raised $3.7 million in the first three months of the year, no doubt a result of her national exposure as a candidate for vice president, military veteran, and foil to former President Donald Trump. The first-term Democrat who last month announced her bid for re-election in 2022 has $1.8 million cash on hand. More than 9,000 Illinoisans contributed to her campaign, and 97 percent of all individual contributions came in under $100, according to her campaign. Duckworth’s fundraising haul suggests she’s getting ready for a fierce challenge or just trying to scare off potential Republican candidates. So far, no one from the GOP has stepped up. . .And GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger has raised $1.1 million for his Country First PAC, which was founded in February to defend Republicans who voted for Donald Trump’s second impeachment and to counter the former president’s influence over the party. Kinzinger was one of the 10 Republicans who voted for impeachment. His name also comes up as a potential contender to Duckworth. On the pro-Trump side, Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has raised $3.2 million since the start of the year, according to POLITICO Huddle. – SHIA KAPOS

WASHINGTON POST
— Biden’s plea for masks will fail. Blame political polarization. Our study found that politics, not public health, determined whether people wore masks last year. – Maria Milosh, Marcus Painter, Konstantin Sonin, David Van Dijcke and Austin L. Wright
(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters will blame COVID-19 on those who voted for Trump, and especially those who voted for Trump and are law enforcement officers, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, 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.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2021/04/13/masks-mandate-partisanship-politics/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Study after study has documented that masks can effectively diminish the spread of covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. Yet President Biden’s recent plea for people to wear masks — at least until the ongoing vaccination drive results in herd immunity — is likely to be ignored by many Americans, thanks to the nation’s extreme political polarization. Our research found that the single most important predictor of local mask use last year in the United States was not covid-19 severity. Nor was it demographic characteristics, religious affiliation or social capital, or even local policies such as mask mandates. No — the strongest and most consistent local factor influencing mask use was what percentage of people in an area voted for Donald Trump in 2016. In areas where mostly Democrats reside, people tended to be likelier to wear masks. But the more people in an area who voted for Trump in 2016, the less likely it was that residents there would wear masks. And while mandates significantly increase mask use in communities that vote heavily Democratic, they have little additional effect in moderate or Republican places. Mask use — or mask refusal — has become a symbol of a struggle between individual autonomy and social responsibility. Wearing or not wearing a mask becomes a cheap and effective way to demonstrate your political attitude.)

Sharon Bannigan, who lost her bid for township assessor against incumbent Robert Maloney in the April 6 election. Maloney, garnered 3,909 votes to Brannigan’s 2,351, according to unofficial election results. “We screamed with joy, we were so relieved,” activist Hasam Marajda said, who led the #ByeBrannigan get-out-the-vote effort. “After four years of going to monthly township meetings, when she wouldn’t resign, we voted her out.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Republican Kirk Dillard has been approached “by prominent business and Republican leaders” to run for governor, but he told Playbook he’s not interested. Dillard wouldn’t need training wheels for the job given he was chief of staff to Gov. Jim Edgar and has legislative experience. “Currently, I have a wonderfully balanced personal and professional life,” he said. “These civic leaders came to me, not vice versa. I am not harboring a desire to run for governor.” Dillard, who is chairman of the Regional Transportation Authority’s board of directors, said he’s “laser focused” on guiding the Chicago area regional mass transit system out of the pandemic. “It’s an economic engine and an economic equalizer for our local communities and the state of Illinois.” All eyes are watching to see if Reps. Rodney Davis or Darin LaHood make a move for the governor’s office. They haven’t ruled out running, and their decisions could be based on how their districts are redrawn. Declared candidates so far: state Sen. Darren Bailey, businessman Gary Rabine, and state Sen. Paul Schimpf. Other potential candidates: former Senate Minority Leader Bill Brady, who recently said he’s considering a potential statewide run for office as secretary of state, governor, or perhaps U.S. Senate; state Sen. Jason Barickman; and attorney and Illinois National Committeeman for the Republican National Committee Richard Porter. Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s name also has been batted about but he has said that a run for governor isn’t likely. – SHIA KAPOS

AMERICAN THINKER
— Fixing Racism by Being Racist? – Brian C. Joondeph
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/fixing_racism_by_being_racist.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, one of America’s most prominent teaching hospitals, plans on offering “preferential care based on race” and “race explicit interventions” as part of its new “antiracist agenda for medicine.” Such a program uses a “reparations framework” to allocate medical resources. Reparations means that those who were never slaveholders are paying money to those who were never slaves, over injustices a century and a half ago, committed by people who may have no connection to the current reparation’s participants. In other words, using racism to combat racism. How ironic that the vision of the Mass General Brigham health system is dedication to delivering medical care that is, among other things, “equitable.” Nothing promotes equity like a racist concept of “preferential care based on race.” Princeton University, an elite institution of higher learning, comparable in prestige to the Brigham in the hospital world, offered admission to about 1500 applicants to its class of 2025, according to Powerline Blog. Only 28 percent were white Americans, compared to 68 percent who identified as “persons of color.” This is less than half of the 61 percent figure of white students enrolled in US public schools. So much for a class of students that “looks like America.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Civil War cost 258,000 Confederate deaths and 360,000 Union deaths. Suggestions have been made that reparations should be paid to the families of the Union soldiers who gave their lives to end slavery. . .During the Civil War, Lee’s estate overlooking Washington, DC, was confiscated by the federal government and turned into Arlington Cemetery. As was the case with many southerners, Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard had his properties in Memphis confiscated as reparations and given to black families for housing.)

BLAZE
— White House answered fake reporter’s questions for weeks before press corps exposed her to be ‘Lego’ video gamer – PAUL SACCA
(DIERSEN: Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being like Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News Ever since 2005, my critics/opponents have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. I should sue my critics/opponents.)
https://www.theblaze.com/news/white-house-fake-reporter-lego-gamer
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An online video game player was able to infiltrate the White House press corps by pretending to be a political reporter. The fake reporter was even able to submit questions to the Biden administration through the press corps, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered the imposter’s questions for weeks. An online persona posed as a reporter named “Kacey Montagu” for the Daily Mail, a British tabloid best known for celebrity gossip. There were Twitter and LinkedIn accounts dedicated to “Kacey Montagu,” plus she was named as the chief political correspondent for White House News, a fictional website. . .The person behind the imposter contacted the White House Correspondents Association about being becoming a pool reporter and inquired about applying for a day pass to cover the White House in person. “Kacey Montagu” was given access to cover COVID-19 government press briefings, but was not called upon. Montagu regularly sent in questions for the White House press corps to ask Psaki, adding that she wasn’t able to be there in person “due to social distancing regulations.” Montagu was able to hoodwink White House reporters, including from The Plain Dealer and CQ Roll Call, to ask Psaki numerous questions “about everything from COVID-19 travel bans, to coming ambassadorships, to Biden’s reaction to Microsoft being hacked.” “In at least one instance, a White House official was connected with Montagu to circle back with more information when they had it,” Politico reported. Some White House reporters researched “Kacey Montagu,” who had a deactivated LinkedIn account with a profile photo of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson eating an ice cream cone, and they became suspicious. During Thursday’s daily White House press briefing, Washington Blade White House Reporter Chris Johnson asked Psaki the question, “How involved is former President Obama and First Lady Obama in the Biden – Harris administration? Is President Biden seeking to bring back the often bipartisan portrait unveiling events at the White House?” The question was planted by Montagu. Mediaite investigated Kacey Montagu, and discovered that she “appears to be a gag persona for a former Secretary of State made of Legos.” “The Montagu website’s FAQ section describes her as ‘An American Citizen. Former Secretary of State, Mayor, Senator, President Pro Tempore and Speaker of the House,’ and her political views as ‘President Trump 2024, baby! I’m a Conservative,'” the outlet wrote on Thursday. Politico found that the person behind the “Kacey Montagu” persona was actually a Lego video gamer. “They believe Montagu’s White House moonlighting began as something to boast about in the online global gaming platform called ROBLOX, where users jokingly call themselves ‘Legos,'” according to Politico. “Within that platform is a role-playing group called nUSA, where people from across the world engage in a mock U.S. government exercise. At one point, Montagu had adopted the role of Secretary of State but resigned from that job after — as they recalled — ‘the [nUSA] President went to war with some U.K. and I thought it was a pretty bad idea!'” The prankster explained her motivation for the fake White House reporter profiles, “I created them as some fun but also to ensure that people know what is going on — they should be able to know what POTUS and V.P. is doing and I think the account following shows people are interested in that.” “I love journalism, and I think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” the hoaxer told the outlet. The White House declined to comment on the situation.)

They would assign me to work for my coworkers and subordinates who had far less work experience, education, and/or professional certifications that I had. They would give me performance expectations and performance appraisals that would be even more unfair. That they would always rank me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance.

DAILY PRINCETONIAN
— Confronting Gerrymandering: The Power of Just Data – Collin Riggins
(DIERSEN: Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. LGBTQ-promoting churches are just north and just south of my precinct. My precinct’s polling place is the LGBTQ-promoting and BLM-promoting church just south of the precinct. About half the homes in my precinct are represented on Wheaton City Council by an LGBTQer whose wife is an LGBTQ activist. Ever-since the 2015 gerrymandering, my precinct contains the Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 Administration building, a public grade school, and a public middle school. My precinct has fewer middle-income voters, more lower-income voters, and more upper-income voters than many other precincts. My precinct has had more turn over (home sales teardowns) than many other precincts. From what I see, about 4 out 5 times when a home owned by Republicans is sold, it is bought by Democrats.)
https://www.dailyprincetonian.com/article/2021/04/gerrymandering-data-census-redistricting-just-data
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For example, Kmetz outlined a problem in the electoral system that affects communities nationwide: there is currently not a centralized database for election results on the precinct level. As a result, the impact that smaller communities have in elections is obscured. Kmetz stated that this “makes it difficult to determine how changing district lines could impact elections.” So, rather than taking very zoomed-out election results as they are, the Lab started a project called OpenPrecincts. Working with local organizations to ensure their use of data is collaborative, transparent, and just, OpenPrecincts is a database that offers precinct-level election results for all 50 states. That way, context can be attributed to data, which can help explain disparities in voter turnout, the prevalence of gerrymandering, and other areas for structural change.)

— Pritzker digs Chicago financial hole deeper by increasing city firefighter pensions – Ted Dabrowski and John Klingner
https://wirepoints.org/pritzker-digs-chicago-financial-hole-deeper-by-increasing-city-firefighter-pensions-wirepoints/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. J.B. Pritzker dug Chicago’s financial hole deeper this week, signing a bill that increases the pension benefits for Chicago firefighters. That follows his expansion of the Chicago Teachers Union’s collective bargaining powers last week, sure to result in larger budget deficits and more chaos for the city’s school system. The new pension law grants all Chicago firefighter retirees a 3 percent annual compounded increase (COLA) to their pensions. Prior to the law, retired firefighters born after 1/1/1966 received only a 1.5 percent simple increase every year. Now, those 2,200 additional firefighters will get the 3 percent COLA. You have to wonder if none of Pritzker’s advisers told him that the Chicago firefighter plan is just 18 percent funded, among the worst funded plans in the country. Or that it and the rest of the city’s plans are running out of assets – the firefighter plan’s assets are less than four year’s worth of payouts. Well-funded plans across the nation have assets worth at least 20 years of future payouts.)

REFINERY 29
— Is Early Retirement Actually Worth The Cost? – WHIZY KIM
(DIERSEN: If you are not retired, when you do retire, what will you do with the rest of your life? If you are retired, what are you doing with the rest of your life? My Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Since 2000, I have been putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. Those newsletters a) have gone out each and every morning since 2004, b) have gone out each and evening too since 2015, c) have included links to almost 396,900 articles and information on many upcoming events, and d) have been and always will be free and contain no advertising.)
https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2021/04/10409276/early-retirement-cost-experiences

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The retirement fantasy used to look like this: It’s your 65th birthday, and you can finally kick back. You’re basking in the glow of your sunset years, thrilled at the idea of never having to work again. Head empty, no thoughts, just Mai Tais on the beach. It’s the ultimate, idyllic reward for dedicating decades of your life to work — especially when you sometimes (or often) didn’t want to do so. In reality, retirement looks totally different than it once did — even as a fantasy. At the same time as an increasing number of Americans are retiring later than 65, many others are throwing as much money as they can toward the goal of retiring early — not just by their 50s, but in their 30s or 40s. The F.I.R.E. movement, which stands for “financial independence/retire early,” has gained a lot of disciples in recent years, but it also has its detractors. Some people love the idea in theory, but don’t think it’s feasible for them in practice. Others wonder what you do with the rest of your life if you retire in your 30s. But many of those who are on the F.I.R.E. path are quick to point out that early retirement isn’t necessarily about never working again. Instead, it’s about having more control over the work you choose to do. Ultimately, the question isn’t simply whether it’s realistic for the average person — it’s also about whether the costs of pursuing early retirement are worth it.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-election-municipal-low-turnout-20210407-ecvcvo77nbap7nxzox3glwxkyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the county level, voter turnout mostly hovered in the low to midteens, typical for many counties in consolidated elections. On the lower end, McHenry County reported a voter turnout of 9.5%, and Kankakee County topped voter turnouts across the counties at 18.6%. The pandemic didn’t have a significant effect on voter turnout, according to county clerks’ offices, with sufficient alternative options for people to vote early or by mail instead of in person. In Cook, DuPage and Lake counties, turnout was 14.7%, 15.6% and 13.7%, respectively. In Will County, southwest of Chicago, 15.8% of voters cast a ballot Tuesday. That’s nearly 3 percentage points higher than the previous consolidated election in 2019, which had a voter turnout of 13.2%, said Charles Pelkie, chief of staff for the Will County clerk’s office.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210225/deborah-sajdak-2021-candidate-for-college-of-dupage-board
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After a lengthy professional career, I am in a position now where I can become more involved in the community. Since education has such a vital role in our society I would like to make some contribution to the success of our young people as they learn and grow. In my positions with Nordstrom I have acquired a broad variety of skills that include: procurement, conflict resolution, negotiation, organization and communication and I would enjoy being able to use these skills in a completely different environment. The only direct experience I have had in higher education has been as a student myself, but it seems to me that the COD board is a place where the skills that I developed over decades at Nordstrom, a large, well known retailer, could be exceptionally useful. At Nordstrom, in my positions as store manager as well as a buyer, I was able to cultivate a broad variety of competence in important management skills including procurement, conflict resolution, negotiation, organization, and communication. I would really enjoy putting those abilities to good use in a completely different, noncommercial environment. I believe that I would bring a fresh set of eyes to the table and would be able to give a different perspective to the issues that are currently faced.)

(DIERSEN: Did you face food insecurity while you were in college? I did not. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress a) that my parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete while I attended UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969 and b) that I paid for my room and board at NIU weekdays during my first semester at NIU in 1969, two semesters at NIU 1969-1970, and the summer of 1970 with money that I earned working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. They stress that I bought a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967 and a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968 with money I earned working for the Post Office..)

(DIERSEN: Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. LGBTQ-promoting churches are just north and just south of my precinct. My precinct’s polling place is the LGBTQ-promoting and BLM-promoting church just south of the precinct. Ever-since the 2015 gerrymandering, my precinct contains the Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 Administration building, a public grade school, and a public middle school. My precinct has fewer middle-income voters, more lower-income voters, and more upper-income voters than many other precincts. My precinct has had far more teardowns than many other precincts. From what I see, about 4 out 5 times when a home owned by Republicans is sold, it is bought by Democrats.)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/republicans-midterms-digital-influence/2021/04/03/391103a8-8c0e-11eb-a730-1b4ed9656258_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The American Culture Project is set up as a social welfare organization exempt from disclosing its donors or paying federal income taxes but, in exchange, barred from making politics its primary focus. The project is led by an Illinois-based conservative activist, John Tillman, who also oversees a libertarian think tank and a news foundation that recently received grant money to highlight opposition to public health restrictions. Tillman, who declined to be interviewed for this story, wrote in an email that the American Culture Project’s objectives are “issue education and advocacy (not electioneering).” “We focus on reaching millions of Americans who can no longer rely on traditional media to become fully informed on a diversity of views on the issues of the day,” he wrote. “By reaching millions of Americans with a broader, more wide ranging set of issues and ideas, we think that voters will make decisions that will elect people, whether Democrat or Republican, that believe in America’s founding principles, and particularly the Bill of Rights.” While data collection and digital ad targeting have become commonplace in political campaigns, what’s unusual about the American Culture Project, experts said, is how it presents its aims as news dissemination and community building. It touts transparency and civic engagement using an online network whose donors remain private — part of a bid to shape public opinion as local news outlets crater and social networks replace traditional forums for political deliberation. The arrangement “puts the lie to the public presentation of these nonprofits as public welfare organizations that might happen to do a little politics,” said Noah Bookbinder, president of the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “It shows the system is being abused in ways we knew were happening but you usually don’t see quite so blatantly.”)

https://fortune.com/2020/07/16/american-journalism-crisis-save-news-media/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The following strategies should help news consumers make these decisions: Think about where you get your news. Are you selecting information just because it agrees with you? Don’t do that. Pick news sources that do more than simply cater to a partisan audience. Make sure you’re differentiating between news and commentary. Good news organizations should clearly demarcate what is news and what is opinion content. Check the news organizations’ use of sources. Are the sources they use in their news stories credible and considered experts in their field? Keep in mind: Experts are often people other than politicians. Look for journalistic standards. A good news organization should have a code of ethics or clear reporting guidelines posted on its website. If you spot a piece of information on social media or a news aggregator, first make sure the information originated with a legitimate news organization (using the other steps listed here). Then visit the site of the news organization that created the original content to ensure it will earn ad revenue for that content. Read full articles, not just headlines (or Facebook posts or tweets). In-depth reporting provides more context, which is part of why it’s worth paying for.)

https://www.thedrive.com/news/39924/are-classic-chevrolet-corvettes-prices-already-past-their-peak-the-answer-is-complicated

(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, are we past peak C2? If you define that as the maximum of what one can be worth, then the answer would appear to be probably. The generation for whom the C2 is probably most evocative, Baby Boomers, are slowly getting too old to drive these symbols of their childhood. But while they account for the biggest percentage of C2 owners insured by Hagerty, at 40 percent, they are actually outnumbered by Gen X and Millennial policy-holders, who own 48 percent of the C2s Hagerty insures. Not all of midcentury America’s icons have stood the test of time, but as demonstrated by younger generations taking up the C2 ownership mantle (and at slowly increasing cost), this Corvette has.)

— GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger is at war with Trumpism, but GOP ‘tribes’ are heavily against him – ERIC ZORN
(DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. I am a member of the Republican Party’s platform tribe.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/columns/eric-zorn/ct-column-kinzinger-trump-republican-tribes-poll-fabrizio-zorn-20210402-ttjzojzj3rgivi7rxxc4upf4em-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The bad news for Kinzinger is that a recent national survey of more than 1,200 Republican voters found that only 15% fall into the “Never Trump” category. The survey, conducted by Fabrizio, Lee and Associates, a Republican polling firm, and released in March, sorted the GOP into five “tribes,” four of which are populated by Trump fans. The “Diehard Trumpers” tribe makes up 27% of the party, the survey found. Members of this group said they “believe Trump should still lead the party,” will definitely support him if he runs for president in 2024 and consider themselves more Trump supporters than Republicans. The “Infowars GOP” tribe — the crackpot caucus — makes up 10% of the party and its members believe “several conspiracy theories pushed by QAnon” as part of their near unanimous support of Trump. The “Trump Boosters” tribe makes up 28% of the party, according to the poll findings. These Republicans give the ex-president “very strong job approval ratings” and show a preference for Trump in a theoretical primary ballot. The “Post-Trump GOP” tribe, 20% of the party, has a “strong, positive opinion” of Trump, but members say they think it’s time for him to step back. Yet only 5% of that tribe expressed support for the theoretical 2024 candidacy of Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, the most Kinzingeresque of the potential Republican presidential hopefuls. Overall, 88% of respondents had a favorable opinion of Trump’s presidency and 57% said they’d definitely vote for him if he runs again. And while, yes, Anthony Fabrizio worked as a pollster for Trump in 2016 and 2020, FiveThirtyEight’s pollster rating gives his firm decent marks and says its results skew slightly Democratic. Further, the overall image emerging from the Fabrizio Lee poll of the GOP as a party in cultish thrall to Trump is born out by news story after news story of moderate Republican officeholders under threat or heading for the exits. Kinzinger hasn’t announced his political plans yet and did not return my request for comment. But if he runs for reelection in 2022 the “fight and battle” he envisions looks to be far tougher than just “difficult.”)

CONSERVATIVE HQ
— What’s Jesus coming back for? – George Rasley
https://www.conservativehq.org/post/what-s-jesus-coming-back-for
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Back in 2014, Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan and a committed Evangelical Christian preached an Easter sermon about sin at Whites Ferry Road Church in his hometown of West Monroe, LA. The substance of the sermon, based on a verse from Corinthians defining “sinners,” eventually got him pushed out of his TV show and generally deplatformed. “Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,” preached Mr. Robertson. The New York Post reported that during the time Mr. Robertson was preaching the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch got tremendous rounds of applause and cheers. Does anyone reading this believe the cheers and applause were because the audience was free of sin, or that no one in attendance had checked any of the boxes on the list Paul gave us in his letter to the church at Corinth? If you do, we have a bridge in Brooklyn and a couple of New Age books to sell you, cheap.)
