My critics/opponents attribute my successes in life to my benefitting tremendously from discrimination against those who are minority, female, younger, veteran, unmarried, parents, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. In my defense, I stress that neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant on the east side of Chicago Heights. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school and never worked outside of the home until after my father died. Because of the aforesaid, I took college preparatory courses in high school. I got and ACT score of 24. I graduated in the upper 20% of my 1966 Crete-Monee High School class. I worked my way through college. I earned a bachelor’s degree and three master’s degrees. I earned six professional certifications. I earned a professional license. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those whose parents are/were rich. Who bought them cars. Who paid for their college expenses. Who got them good jobs.)

— During the last 8 years that I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office, they had my Black subordinate lead the office’s big annual Black History Month events. In September of 1997, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and gave my Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office.

— A quarter of United Methodist churches in U.S. have left during split (COMMENT: In 1961, when I was 13 years old and in 8th grade at Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete ( https://www.trinitycrete.org/ and https://ilhs.org/ ), the church’s split had a tremendous impact on me. The pastor succeeded in dumping the Missouri Synod for the Wisconsin Synod. My father was one of the Church Elders who led an unsuccessful fight to stay with the Missouri Synod. To stay with the Missouri Synod, my parents transferred to Hope Lutheran in Park Forest. Since 1847, all my ancestors had always been Missouri Synod Lutheran. On my father’s side, they all had all graduated from Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. But in 1962, I graduated from a newly formed extremely small 8th grade at Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest. The church split created many divisions between those who stayed with the Missouri Synod and those who joined the Wisconsin Synod. The split ended big annual family reunions in Crete and Grant Park that had been organized by both my father’s and mother’s parents.)

Because of ever-increasing Democrat and RINO led disapproval/disgust/hatred against those who share my demographics (conservative, Republican, White, male, Protestant, 100% German American, and my ancestors have been in America for a long time), if I was 30 today, I would not have been able to accomplish what I did. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30. I got married and bought a home in Wheaton with my wife when I was 29. I earned an MBA from Loyola when I was 27. I bought real estate when I was 27, 25, and 24. I bought new cars when I was 29, 25, 20, 19, and 17. I graduated debt-free from NIU owing a 1969 Dodge Charger SE when I was 21. The Democrats who ran the Post Office hired me when I was 18, Firestone Stores when I was 21, and IRS when I was 22, but they would not hire me today if I was 18, 21, or 22. IRS promoted me when I was 23, 24, and 25, but IRS would not do that if I was 23, 24, or 25 today. )

FORTUNE
— These Fortune 500 companies will help pay for employee MBAs – SYDNEY LAKE (COMMENT: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, I started working for the Democrats who ran IRS. The employee manual that they gave me encouraged me to take graduate business, accounting, and law courses. Because of that, and notwithstanding the fact that IRS did not reimburse anything for tuition or books, a) I started taking graduate evening business courses at Loyola in 1972 and I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and b) I started taking graduate evening accounting courses at DePaul in 1976 and I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980. Further, I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. But in 1978, because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, my Democrat superiors outrageously disallowed the tuition and books that I had deducted on my 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1977 income tax returns and outrageously argued that the courses were not job-related, did not help me carry out my job duties, qualified me for a new trade or business, and were taken my me to get a job in the private sector. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://fortune.com/education/articles/these-fortune-500-companies-will-help-pay-for-employees-mba/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The average cost of earning an MBA ranges from about $60,000 to more than $200,000, so financial aid can be a welcome benefit for those people seeking a graduate business degree. And here’s some good news: Many Fortune 500 companies will help pay for employees’ MBA degrees, whether it’s a full sponsorship, tuition reimbursement, or a guaranteed annual contribution directly to the university you attend. Some companies even have partnerships with universities that offer specialized MBA programs or tuition discounts.)

My critics/opponents have always stressed that I am conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. In my defense, I have always stressed that all my ancestors always lived in northeast Illinois, that they were never in a position to discriminate against anyone, and that they never did discriminate against anyone. I stress that if I had benefitted from slavery, I would not have had to work my way through college.)

— Elon Musk Slams US Immigration Policy, Highlights Mother’s Struggles. In a series of posts on X, Musk highlighted various services and benefits that he believes illegal immigrants have access to in the United States, highlighting their alleged contribution to the housing affordability crisis.
https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/elon-musk-slams-us-immigration-policy-highlights-mothers-struggles-4997224
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Billionaire Elon Musk took to social media to voice his concerns about the economic implications of illegal immigration, adding his criticism to the ongoing debate surrounding the Joe Biden administration’s approach to an alleged border crisis. In a series of posts on X, Musk highlighted various services and benefits that he believes illegal immigrants have access to in the United States, highlighting their alleged contribution to the housing affordability crisis. “A few other things you probably don’t know: illegals in America can get bank loans, mortgages, insurance, driver’s licenses, free healthcare (California & New York) and in-state college tuition. What’s the point of being a citizen if an illegal gets all the benefits, but doesn’t pay taxes or do jury duty?” he wrote. “If you’re wondering why housing is so expensive, this is a major contributor,” he added. With housing prices reaching record highs in November and mortgage rates near two-decade highs due to the Federal Reserve’s fight against inflation, the US real estate market is facing challenges, a Fox News report claims. Homebuyers are struggling, and renters are experiencing a surge in financial burdens, the report adds. Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies revealed that in 2022, an unprecedented 22.4 million American renters were considered “cost burdened” by their monthly housing payments. Renters are classified as “burdened” if they spend more than 30 per cent of their income on rent and utilities, and this staggering number represents roughly half of all US tenants. Born and raised in South Africa, Musk moved to Canada at the age of 18 before becoming a US citizen. “I’m not anti-immigration; I’m just against a massive number of unvetted people flooding into America, which any rational person should be,” he said. The Tesla chief’s mother, Maye Musk, 75, in a separate post, highlighted her struggles of getting US citizenship, even claiming that it took her 12 years to become a US citizenship. “I couldn’t get US citizenship even though my father and grandmother were born in Minnesota, and my grandfather, John Elon Haldeman, was born in Illinois. I was born in Canada so it took me 12 years through visas, a green card, a lawyer, and numerous medical tests. That’s how hard it is,” her post read. Responding to it, Musk wrote, “Yeah, it was extremely difficult and took over a decade for me to get US citizenship.” US Senators on Sunday released a $20.2 billion legislation for border security and immigration policy changes agreed to by Democratic and Republican negotiators. The new law would give President Joe Biden the power to reject asylum seekers if illegal border crossings reached over 5,000 per week, news agency AFP reported.)

WIREPOINTS
— Chicago has demanded future generations pay for its unaffordable pension debts (COMMENT: Are you in line to get a pension? I was in line to get a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension since I was 18 years old in 1966. Are you getting a pension? I have gotten a CSRS pension since my Democrat superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” when I was 49 years old in 1997. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who continue to use my CSRS pension against me the most. They hint/imply/argue/shout that my CSRS pension is far too generous because I was grossly overpaid. To do that, they ignore, dismiss, and/or belittle the fact while I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, I got promoted in 1973, 1973, 1974, and 1986, I paid 7% of my salary into the CSRS, and I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree in 1970, b) job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997, and d) a job-related professional license in 1981. I might still be working for the federal government and paying 7% of my salary into the CSRS if my Democrat superiors had not forced me to take their early retirement “offer” when I was 49 years old in 1997.)

— Top campaign contribution recipients in Illinois for the week of Nov. 19 (COMMENT: What discourages you from contributing to Republican candidates? For me, it is unsuccessful Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct who blame me for their defeats. They blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and what I did a) as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019, b) as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, c) as the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2010, and d) as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member 2003-2007. They blame the straw polls that I conducted at MTRO and TAPROOT events.)

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Does the objection to Trump on the Illinois primary ballot have a chance? What we know. – Patrick M. Keck
https://www.sj-r.com/story/news/politics/elections/2024/01/07/illinois-state-board-of-elections-to-decide-trumps-ballot-eligibility/72112827007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Supporters of the former president like U.S. Rep. Mary Miller, R-Oakland, said the objection was politically-motivated with Trump as the overwhelmingly leading GOP candidate. She also is a Trump GOP convention delegate. “They know Trump will defeat Biden in a free & fair election,” Miller posted on X, formerly Twitter. “Democrats are embracing banana republic tactics by trying to jail their political opponents and throw them off the ballot.” . . . Matt Dietrich, ISBOE spokesperson, said the state election authority’s process will begin on Jan. 17 with the selection of a hearing officer who will meet with both parties to discuss their case. That officer will then report their findings with ISBOE’s general counsel, later providing a recommendation to its bipartisan, eight-member electoral board on Jan. 30. A majority vote is required for the objection to move forward. In the case of a tie, the objection is dropped. Objectors and the candidate, however, can seek judicial review, meaning any legal challenges likely would be ongoing when early voting starts on Feb. 8. The Illinois Supreme Court, holding a 5-2 Democratic majority, could be a favorable venue for the objectors.)

ORLANDO SENTINEL
— Income tax deductions you should not miss – ELLIOT RAPHAELSON (COMMENT: What tax deductions have you taken? In 1978, the Democrats who ran IRS disallowed the graduate a) business courses that I had taken at Loyola 1972-1976 and b) accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul since 1976. I was 29, I had worked for IRS for almost 7 years, and my salary was $106,785/year (GS-12 Step 4) in today’s dollars. They would not have disallowed those courses I had not been a union member or if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. They disallowed those courses to punish me for my complaining about their use of “up-or-out” to get rid of me, that is, their use of political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination to get rid of me. They had made it extremely clear that they would never promote me to GS-13 because I was too old. They ignored/dismissed/belittled the aforesaid course work and that I was on track to pass the CPA examination which I did in 1979. They outrageously/disgustingly/unethically argued that the courses were not job-related, that they did not help me carry out my job duties, that they qualified me for a new trade or business, and that I took them to get a job in the private sector. They ignored/dismissed/belittled the requirements of my position descriptions and the fact that I stated in my Loyola and DePaul applications that I wanted to take the courses because the employee manual that IRS gave me in 1971 encouraged me to take graduate business, accounting, and law courses. They helped Money Magazine make my deducting the courses look improper in its 4-page February 1978 article on me.)

He was holding a cup of coffee and spilled it on to others while trying to cut in front before he was confronted by another migrant. An argument quickly turned physical with the man allegedly punching the line-cutter who fell to the ground and others joined in. – KAMAL SALTAN

LEGACY
— OBITUARY: Gary Lee Longman
https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/chicagotribune/name/gary-longman-obituary?id=54025103 (COMMENT: Gary was one of my roommates at NIU 1969-1970. When my father died suddenly in October of 1969, he outstandingly came to the wake in Crete. His summer job in 1969 was interning at KPMG while my summer job was delivering mail in Park Forest. I will forever regret a) my not majoring in accounting at NIU like Gary did, b) my not starting to take graduate accounting courses at DePaul until I was 27, c) my not taking and passing the CPA examination on my first attempt until I was 30, and d) my not becoming a licensed CPA until I was 32.)
(FROM THE OBITUARY: Gary was a graduate of Northern Illinois University with a degree in accounting. He was a highly driven, business- minded CPA who quickly worked his way up at KPMG, becoming a partner at just age 32. He held many esteemed positions, including partner-in-charge of the Chicago Audit Practice and leader of the Midwest-area technology practice. An accountant by trade, Gary dedicated his talents not only to his work but also to the community. He joined many business boards. He was a director of Marine Bank and “interim” President of Sunny Ridge Family Center for ten years, guiding them to success.)

— The importance of putting together a budget – Ashley Bihun (COMMENT: When I ran for the open Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) Treasurer office in 2004, I had served as the Treasurer for the a) Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter for 3 years, b) American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter for 3 years, and c) Illinois Center Right Coalition for 2 years. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt, I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and I had become a licensed CPA. I had worked for GAO for almost 18 years and for IRS for almost 9 years. I stressed to MTRO members that budgeting was a very important planning exercise. I stressed that I would draft a budget for MTRO each year, get the other MTRO officers to approve a draft budget, get the MTRO membership to approve a budget, and get MTRO to follow that budget. But my opponent for that MTRO Treasurer office, his operatives, and his dupes, including two CPAs, not only viciously attacked budgeting, they viciously attacked me personally. Just before the vote, they demonized, denigrated, and condemned me as not being a team player and that I irritate everyone around me. My opponent got 69 votes and I got only 13 votes. Since 2002, MTRO has punished me for Jim Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich because I supported Patrick O’Malley in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Since 2004, MTRO has punished me for my not covering up the wrongdoing of a MTRO officer and for Andrew McKenna losing the Republican U.S. Senate primary because I allegedly rigged a major MTRO straw poll. Since 2006, MTRO has punished me for Judy Baar Topinka’s losing to Blagojevich. MTRO continues to punish me for the aforesaid.)

— Marco Rubio’s new book explains how globalizing the US economy transformed immigration – Marco Rubio (COMMENT: Globalists want cheap labor.)
https://nypost.com/2023/06/10/marco-rubios-new-book-explains-how-globalization-transformed-immigration/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) explains how these newcomers served as convenient sources of cheap labor — while upended long-standing patterns of assimilation and integration. . .many elites believe “it is better to import cheap labor and buy off Americans with cash welfare programs provided by the government” . . . For decades now, since our elites began to believe that global market integration was an inherent good that should take precedence over all else — particularly patriotism, national unity, and the welfare of American workers — this country has prioritized the importation of cheap labor. . .But not every business could be exported, which meant Wall Street simply figured out how to import cheap labor, much of it coming from illegal immigrants. This was a slower, more subtle process. . .More often than not, it is about jobs Wall Street doesn’t want Americans to do because hiring Americans would require higher wages and better working conditions. To them, it is better to import cheap labor and buy off Americans with cash welfare programs provided by the government.)

The author of Money Magazine’s February 1978 4-page article on me was very puzzled why I did not try to hide the fact that I was 100% German American and Protestant. In addition to being German American and Protestant, both Trump and I are conservative, Republican, White, male, older. draft avoiders, non-poor, married, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time. In my defense, I have always stressed that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F.)

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/miacathell/2023/12/20/will-lawsuit-dei-state-bar-n2632570
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The State Bar of Wisconsin is being sued for promoting discriminatory DEI practices based on race and sexual orientation. Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) launched a lawsuit Wednesday against the Wisconsin State Bar on behalf of a State Bar member who is compelled to pay mandatory membership dues that functionally fund DEI programming he argues unfairly discriminates against him as well as thousands of Wisconsin attorneys on the basis of racial and sexual identity. Specifically, the State Bar of Wisconsin’s “Diversity Clerkship Program” offers exclusive internship opportunities—ones that should be open to everyone, WILL’s client says—only to certain minority law students or those who self-identify as LGBTQ+. Some of Wisconsin’s largest law firms and government agencies participate in the race- and sexuality-based Diversity Clerkship Program, including the ACLU of Wisconsin, the Milwaukee City Attorney’s Office, and the Wisconsin Department of Justice. The application itself requires prospects to submit personal statements, “an extremely important factor” in the “race-based selection criteria,” detailing how they “contributed to diversity” and have “demonstrat[ed] their commitment to diversity.” . . . WILL additionally argues that the program “advocates for supplanting equal opportunity with equal outcome” and “violates the free speech rights of students by discriminating against those who will not profess a commitment to this [DEI] ideology.”)

— Dem Sen. Coons: ‘Legitimate Case’ IRS Has Abused Audits, But It Needs More Agents – IAN HANCHETT (COMMENT: My Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my education deductions. They disallowed my job-related graduate business courses at Loyola 1972-1976 and my job-related graduate accounting courses at DePaul 1976-1980. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, female, minority, or veteran. I should write a book about that. Overwhelmingly, those who side with my Democrat IRS superiors are Democrats, minorities, females, and/or veterans a) who never took job-related graduate courses and/or did not have to pay for those courses.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) said that “there is a legitimate case to be made that, in some instances in the past, the IRS has overused its audit authority” but defended additional IRS funding enacted by the Biden administration without legislative guarantees it won’t be used to audit taxpayers making under $400,000. While discussing increased funding for the IRS, co-host Joe Kernen asked, “You don’t worry about weaponizing the IRS again, Senator? You saw what happened. You were there for Lois Lerner, weren’t you? Maybe you weren’t.”)

CENTER SQUARE
— DeSantis: Trump is too old to be president – Casey Harper (COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always a) demonized, denigrated, and condemned my federal career and b) stressed that I avoided the Vietnam War draft. In 1973 when I was 25 years old, my Democrat superiors in the federal government deemed me to be too old to ever be promoted to GS-13, currently $109,732/year. The Navy equivalent is Commander. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. Nevertheless, I did get promoted to GS-13 in 1986 when I was 32 after I had a) worked for GAO for almost 7 years, b) worked for IRS for almost 9 years, c) passed the Certified Internal Auditor Examination and became a licensed CPA in 1981, d) passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and e) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. What do DeSantis supporters say about that? Unlike me, DeSantis became a veteran when he was 26. Like me, DeSantis did not earn a master’s degree until he was 27. DeSantis ended his Navy Reserve service in 2019 when he was 41 as a Lieutenant Commander. The GS equivalent is GS-12. I made GS-12 in 1974 when I was 25.)
