DAILY CALLER
— ‘That’s Not An Answer’: Reporter Presses Psaki On Biden’s Support Of Lifting Abortion Restrictions – NICOLE SILVERIO
(COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. I should write a book about those who have blamed me the most for losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since 2000. They blame the questions that I have asked candidates at press conferences, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois events, and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) events. In my roles as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, as the TAPROOT chairman 2005-2012, and as an ICRC Steering Committee member 2003-2007, I have asked many candidates many questions. Most commonly, I have asked them if they will defend and advance the following planks in the Republican Party platform if elected: individual responsibility, traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving). All my critics/opponents, their operatives, andtheir dupes reject some, reject most, or reject all of the aforesaid planks.)

— FRONT PAGE: Covid and Diabetes, Colliding in a Public Health Train Wreck. After older people and nursing home residents, no group perhaps has been harder hit by the pandemic than people with diabetes. Experts hope policymakers will take notice, and finally get serious about tackling the nation’s diabetes crisis. – Andrew Jacobs
(COMMENT: I have had type 2 diabetes at least since 2011 and it is currently not under control.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/03/health/diabetes-covid-deaths.html
(COMMENT: The Donners see little mystery in why they fared so differently: Mr. Donner has diabetes, a chronic disease that hobbles the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar and inexorably wreaks havoc on circulation, kidney function and other vital organs. After older people and nursing home residents, perhaps no group has been harder hit by the pandemic than people with diabetes. Recent studies suggest that 30 to 40 percent of all coronavirus deaths in the United States have occurred among people with diabetes, a sobering figure that has been subsumed by other grim data from a public health disaster that is on track to claim a million American lives sometime this month. People with diabetes are especially vulnerable to severe illness from Covid, partly because diabetes impairs the immune system but also because those with the disease often struggle with high blood pressure, obesity and other underlying medical conditions that can seriously worsen a coronavirus infection. “It’s hard to overstate just how devastating the pandemic has been for Americans with diabetes,” said Dr. Giuseppina Imperatore, who oversees diabetes prevention and treatment at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Diabetes patients hospitalized with Covid spend more time in the I.C.U., are more likely to be intubated and are less likely to survive, according to several studies, one of which found that 20 percent of hospitalized coronavirus patients with diabetes died within a month of admission.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— 7 big ideas for making Illinois more (small-d) democratic – MADELEINE DOUBEK
(DIERSEN: Hate-filled Republican-hating Republican-haters cast Republican primary ballots and vote for a) candidates who are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, or RINOs and/or b) candidates who are sure to lose in general elections.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/madeleine-doubek-government/7-ways-make-government-work-better-illinois-madeleine-doubek
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 6. Let’s open up our primaries and stop making people ask for a Democratic or Republican ballot before they vote. More voters are independent, and that trend isn’t shrinking. Opening up the primaries likely would improve participation and end a significant problem: Very few voters are doing the winnowing and picking of our general election contenders. Those primary voters tend to be from their parties’ extreme wings, and their choices do not tend to reflect the population as a whole. That is one of the big drivers of the hyper-polarization we’re experiencing in our politics and government.)

— IRS still paying pandemic benefits to dead people: Audit – Stephen Dinan
(COMMENT: GAO audits IRS. I should write a book about those who have wasted my knowledge of IRS the most. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $88,229-$99,994/year. GAO audits IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 and worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $104,915-$136,387/year. The Democrats who ran GAO kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of those almost 18 years. In my book, I would focus on my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors and on my Republican U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, their staff members, and their political consultants.)

(COMMENT If Wheaton and Wheaton Park District allow me to raise funds from Republicans so that Republicans can help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks this year, how hard will my critics/opponents work to stop candidates on June 28, 2022 Republican primary ballots in my precinct from being sponsors? What will they stress to those candidates? They will stress their success in a) stopping me from raising funds last year, b) promoting LGBTQ big time in downtown Wheaton in 2020, c) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, d) ending my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, e) ending my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, f) ending my Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, g) ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, h) almost getting ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, i) ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, and j) viciously ending my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004.)

— CPS selective enrollment schools to accept fewer affluent students under proposed change – Sarah Karp
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized, denigrated, and condemned my parents as being filthy rich. They have always stressed that my father made enough money that my mother could stay home and raise my brother and me and that they sent my brother and me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest to stay with the Missouri Synod. My outstanding parents never attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My father fought type 1 diabetes, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. If my parents were filthy rich, why did I take jobs that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take? I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

— IRS Readies Hiring Binge in Bid to Clear Tax-Return Backlog. Tax agency plans to hire 5,000 workers quickly and 5,000 more by September 2023. – Richard Rubin
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have wasted my knowledge of IRS the most. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $88,229-$99,994/year. GAO audits IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 and worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $104,915-$136,387/year. The Democrats who ran GAO kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of those almost 18 years. In my book, I would focus on my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors and on my Republican U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, their staff members, and their political consultants.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/irs-readies-hiring-binge-in-bid-to-clear-tax-return-backlog-11646942444
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Republicans starved the Internal Revenue Service of funding for far too long, and the taxpayer has paid the price,” said Rep. Richard Neal (D., Mass.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “But in this bill, Democrats deliver the largest funding increase to the agency in decades.” Republicans have criticized the IRS for being too slow to use pandemic-era funding it received. “The IRS is finally recognizing that this historic backlog is not due to a lack of funding, but due to its neglect in using the tools it has,” Rep. Kevin Brady (R., Texas), the top Republican on the Ways and Means Committee, said last week.)

— As an election observer in 2014, I saw Ukrainians’ commitment to sovereignty – PETER ROSKAM
(COMMENT: Roskam was my state representative 1993-1999, state senator 2000-2007, and congressman 2007-2019. Roskam’s endorsement helped me win a contested precinct committeeman race in 2000. I have done a lot to help elect him and to help reelect him. I gathered signatures in my precinct on his nominating petitions. I got campaign sign locations for him in my precinct, including for second-floor 4X4 signs at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road. I delivered lots of his campaign literature in my precinct. I invited him to speak at TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition events. Duckworth had her thugs throw me out her rally with Michael J. Fox in the Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton in 2006. I raised $2,000 for an elephant to walk behind him in Wheaton’s 2007 Independence Day parade. However, sadly, I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have blamed me the most and have blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for Roskam’s problems. I have been the Illinois reporter for www.gopusa.com since 2000. My critics/opponents did not want me to attend Henry Hyde’s press conference in 2005 ( https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2005-08-05-0508050305-story.html ) when he endorsed Roskam. But when I attended anyway, they warned me to not ask any questions. Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being just 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 Since 2005, they 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. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents.)

— Concordia University Wisconsin, a university of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has immediately suspended and banned from its campus Reverend Dr. Gregory Schulz, a philosophy professor, for writing an article criticizing the school’s descent into “Woke-ness.” – Federalist
(COMMENT: The Missouri Synod emerged from several communities of German Lutheran immigrants during the 1830s and 1840s. It was organized in 1847 at a meeting in Chicago. My ancestors worked in a brick factory in Chicago at that time. I was baptized as a Missouri Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, raised as a MSL, and confirmed as a MSL in 1962. My outstanding parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. I should write a book about those who have/had lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned MSLs the most as being “too conservative.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen was among the first to file at the county clerk’s office Monday as he turned in paperwork to run for county treasurer. Democrat Jeffrey Pripusich also filed for treasurer. Lauzen, who served as county board chairman for eight years, said he wanted to be a “spending watchdog” for the county’s money. He pointed to several county expenditures he considered wasteful, including employing a lobbyist and the recent hiring of a public information officer. “If somebody is not satisfied with what’s going on in any level of government, rather than complain about it, do something about it,” said Lauzen, an accountant who also served in the Illinois Senate for 20 years.)

— DuPage County Divided Over Drawing of County Election Precinct Maps
(COMMENT: Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs redraw precincts to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me. For the second time now, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs have drawn me in to the same DuPage County Milton Precinct 9 in Wheaton with Jeanne Ives.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/top-stories/dupage-county-divided-over-drawing-of-county-election-precinct-maps/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County voters could find they are grouped into fewer, larger precincts come the next election. Why Now? A new piece of legislation signed into law in November 2021 and discussed Tuesday at the county finance committee meeting reduces the number of DuPage County election precincts from 930 to 607. The current draft of the redrawn maps leaves fewer committeemen to serve as the voice of the voters, thereby impacting whether a party may be elected. What’s At Issue? Board member Amy Chavez said some precinct committee members and township officials have reached out to her, asking for changes to the proposed election precinct maps. “I think there is a lot of concern over these new lines,” Chavez said. Board member Sam Tornatore said something has to give. “It’s essentially a political attempt to change boundaries within precincts,” Tornatore said. The new state legislation comes on the heels of the county board agreeing on a new DuPage County redistricting map in a bipartisan effort in October 2021. Deputy County Clerk Adam Johnson said he stands by the election precinct maps put together by county clerk’s office staff. “It’s unavoidable that there’s going to be some people who are not happy with the way the maps turn out,” Johnson said. “Certainly, we’re open to constructive criticism on how that process could have been better massaged.” Board member Jim Zay said he would not support the precinct maps as proposed given the lack of time allotted for input. “We have a job to do,” Zay said. “This is not putting us in the best position to do our job.” Johnson tried to address concerns about the county clerk’s office getting input on the precinct maps. “While there hasn’t been a lot of time for as many outside parties to review the maps, from the feedback I have received, I haven’t heard much in the way of actual substantive complaints of how the maps were drawn in terms of meeting the state legislature’s requirements,” Johnson said. Tornatore said he doesn’t want to place blame on the county clerk’s office, but he believes taxpayer money may have been wasted. “I don’t know that the election division contemplated this legislation coming from Springfield,” Tornatore said. “I know it’s been kind of on the back burner. … Perhaps we should have taken it into consideration before we ordered as many printers as we did. But I’m going to presume that we have a printer for every precinct that if we now have 300-plus fewer precincts, we either should get a rebate for the money we spent or we’re going to have a lot of printers being stored that aren’t being used.” The county board authorized the purchase of new voting equipment valued at roughly $7.2 million in October 2021. That contract as awarded includes funding to pay for printers, among other things. The county has been in the process of matching polling places with election precincts to determine which ones will be combined into a single location. Officials anticipate a reduction in the number of polling places, but they believe the amount of new printers purchased will remain appropriate for the layout of available voting locations. Moving Forward. County board members acknowledge they don’t have a lot of time to spare. The election precinct maps need to be adopted no later than Friday. A special county board meeting on this topic is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.)

I slipped and fell on my head on the ice retrieving newspapers from the driveway apron early Monday morning.

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
