— Most suburban GOP lawmakers endorse Pritzker’s COVID-19 stay-at-home rule – Marni Pyke
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200330/most-suburban-gop-lawmakers-endorse-pritzkers-covid-19-stay-at-home-rule
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois GOP House Leader Jim Durkin and Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady supported Pritzker’s executive order issued March 20 that aims to nip the spread of the respiratory infection. Republican and DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin has appeared with Pritzker at several briefings and said “preserving people’s health and safety has to be the No. 1 consideration in an effort to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. “I intend to let the public health recommendations and data drive decision-making, so we make the most informed decisions possible in this unprecedented situation,” Cronin said. Republican state Rep. David McSweeney of Barrington Hills, however, said last week that Pritzker’s order is “too broad” and the state should align with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I am 100% totally supportive of what the health care professionals say at the federal level,” McSweeney said. “I believe the best information is at the CDC. No one in Washington has ordered a shutdown of the state of Illinois.”)

— How will county parties hold legally mandated conventions on April 15th?
https://capitolfax.com/2020/03/30/how-will-county-parties-hold-legally-mandated-conventions-on-april-15th/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ILGOP’s general counsel sent a memo to county chairs days ago. Excerpt… Other than the requirement that conventions be held on a particular date, the Election Code only directs that a county convention elect a county chairman, select delegates to the state convention and shall be held “within the county.” There is no statutory requirement that a convention must be conducted in any particular manner. In other words, for county organizations without bylaws that might direct otherwise, a convention could possibly be conducted by a conference call (so long as all participants are within the county), or by use of absentee ballots or other methods to elect a chairman and to conduct business. As for the requirement that state convention delegates are chosen at the county convention, that task may be delegated (as has traditionally been the case) to county chairmen if necessary. Of course, all notice requirements must be adhered to, as always. For counties with bylaws that dictate how their conventions are to be run, those bylaws will control, and county organizations should abide by them. I asked the same follow-up question to the ILGOP’s Joe Hackler about counties with in-person meeting requirements. His response… There may be a few that explicitly require personal presence for participation. However, each of these counties conventions would conceivably have a rules committee that could possibly help offer some relief.)

— Normal council grants Mayor and City Manager Emergency Powers – Munashe Kwangwari III
https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/normal-council-grants-mayor-and-city-manager-emergency-powers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the virus continuing to spread in McLean County, both twin cities council’s are taking the next step to ensure people are safe and have nothing to worry about. On Monday, the Normal council met to declare a local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, members gave Mayor Chris Koos and City Manager Pam Reece emergency powers. What this means is, both Reece and Koos now have the authority to make decisions that might ordinarily be outside municipal policies or codes. That includes spending money outside what’s outlined in the budget to fight the pandemic. In a balance of powers effort, the town council has the ability to review any and all orders issued by the Mayor. “There are situations that we really can’t anticipate,” said City Manager, Pam Reece. “We want the ability to be able to be nimble and react quickly.” The ordinance is now in effect, and will end when Pritzker’s stay at home order ends, which at this time is set for April 7th.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump heaped scorn on several members of the White House press corps at a coronavirus briefing Friday, but made a point of responding to questions from a new reporter in the briefing room: His former press secretary. “Mr. President, two questions if you would indulge me,” Sean Spicer said when Trump pointed a finger to call on his former aide. Spicer, of course, is the former White House and Republican National Committee spokesman who vigorously defended Trump’s inauguration crowd size claims and regularly tangled with reporters during combative White House briefings before his ouster in a 2017 shakeup. He also took a spin on “Dancing With The Stars.” Spicer now has his own political talk show for the conservative Newsmax TV outlet. By the time Trump entered the White House Briefing Room to address reporters Friday, Spicer was set to press his old boss for presidential reaction to small business anxieties and reports that senators unloaded stocks before a pandemic-sparked market downturn. The surreal scene played out moments after the president castigated NBC’s Peter Alexander for suggesting that Trump may be giving Americans “a false sense of hope” about coronavirus treatment, asking what he would say to Americans who are scared or sickened by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.)

https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/march/neither-refugees-nor-asylum-seekers-the-real-reason-these-migrants-are-coming-to-the-us-illegally
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Leaving to “Keep Up with the Joneses” “The people who die here die of old age in bed,” Bensman said. “So you can’t argue that people are fleeing this place. But what you can say is that people are leaving this place to keep up with the Joneses.” “People are telling us about something entirely different as a motive for going to the United States, and it has to do with envy. What I mean by envy, particularly, is house envy,” Bensman continued. “American dollars being sent back to the families here have been poured into huge, beautiful houses.” Guatemala receives more than ten billion dollars a year in remittances from its citizens who are living in the United States and sending their money back home. And a lot of that money – at least in this town – is being used for home construction. The people that are working in the United States send money to their family members and what few men are left in this town are very busy constructing houses. Two homes we saw under construction are 2,500 square feet. Many Guatemalans appear to be achieving the American dream by moving the American dream back to Guatemala. The Dream? To Build a Nice House Back in Guatemala Marcus Domingo’s sons are in Missouri, working jobs where they’re paid “under the table” and sending enough money home to build both of these houses. “See, the problem here is there aren’t any economic resources, no jobs for us, it’s only in the United States where there’s work that pays enough to do this because Guatemala is a poor country,” Domingo said. “Right now our dream is for each of us to build our own house so we can have a good life, buy a little piece of land, and put a little money in the bank so that we can better our situation. Everyone sees that some are building all this and everyone became preoccupied with fighting to have one for themselves,” he said.)

— How many votes did the Republican candidates in contested races get in your precinct? Below are the unofficial results from the DuPage County Election Division for my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton. I do not recommend or endorse candidates in Republican primaries. I do not do that because my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Illinois Republican Party (IRP) have been so successful in painting any recommendation or endorsement by me as being THE KISS OF DEATH for candidates. Further, the aforesaid do everything that they can to suppress the number of Republican primary ballots cast in my precinct because the more ballots that are cast, the greater the weighted vote that I have in MTRO, DCRCC, and IRP leadership elections. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— FROM THE ARTICLE: Voter turnout overall, however, is expected to drop. And conventional wisdom says that generally favors party-backed candidates and those with strong field organizations, potentially giving Rep. Dan Lipinski and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx more of a leg-up. There’s a lot going on and your crystal ball and tea leaves are shrugging. But we can tell you five contests worth watching: . .Oberweis v. Rezin: Those are the two names to watch in this heated Republican primary that will decide who competes against freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in November. Jim Oberweis and Sue Rezin have been feuding in recent days, ever since Rezin has filed a federal election complaint accusing Oberweis of employing a scheme to circumvent campaign finance rules. Along with the unpredictability of the coronavirus, this race has five other candidates in the hunt. So anything can happen. – Shia Kapos)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: EARLY VOTING NUMBERS in Chicago and Cook County were up going into today’s election. Chicago saw early voting rise 22.5 percent from 2016, according to the Chicago Board of Elections, and most of the increase came Monday. Early voting this year totaled 171,709, compared with 140,148. On Monday alone, 25,781 voters cast ballots, compared to 9,821 on the day prior to Election Day 2016. In the surrounding suburbs, early voting rose 46 percent, from 114,021 in 2016 to 166,613 this year, according to the Cook County Clerk’s Office. The reason: Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and other elected officials pounded the drum for voters to get to the polls early to help decrease the potential for crowds during the coronavirus outbreak. – Shia Kapos

DAILY CALLER
— Tucker Carlson: Shutting Down Economy Poses ‘Its Own Kind Of Public Health Risk’ – SCOTT MOREFIELD (DIERSEN: To defeat Trump, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs do everything that they can to destroy America’s economy.)
https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/16/tucker-carlson-shutting-down-economy-health-risk/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News host Tucker Carlson struck a balanced approach between epidemiologists who would argue for shutting everything down to fight the coronavirus pandemic and those concerned that an economic recession and even depression could pose “its own kind of public health risk.” Acknowledging the “major threat to the country” that coronavirus poses, Carlson pointed out the fact that there is “no clear consensus on how the country should respond.” “That should not surprise you,” said the Fox News host on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “People of good faith are working toward a couple of different goals tonight which at times collide with one another.” While the “first obligation” is always public safety and should be accomplished if possible, Carlson pointed out that protecting the economy should also be considered. “At the same time though, we need to protect our economy, and it’s not just something that Wall Street cares about, to be totally clear,” he said. “Economic decline is dangerous for everyone, especially at the bottom of the economy. It’s a legitimate human concern. It’s not just financial, it’s about families.” The “two imperatives” can “often conflict,” the Fox News host contended. “So if you ask an epidemiologist what we ought to do next, the answer is simple: shut it down, close every public space until the virus passes.” “From a public health standpoint, that makes sense, but what would be the consequences of doing that?” he asked. “Millions and millions of people would lose their jobs, some of them for good. We would enter a severe recession with mass unemployment and it could get worse from there. It’s not a joke, that could happen. You would see an awful lot of people in poverty in middle America and that poses its own kind of public health risk. Poor countries are never healthy countries. If you want great health care, you’ve got to pay for it and you have to have money to do so.” Any proper response “requires balance” and is a “complex question” with “no obvious answers.” Later in the monologue, Carlson warned against printing cheap money and eventually entering a situation where the U.S. “becomes Zimbabwe.” “It’s missing the point anyway,” he said. “The real imperative is saving jobs. For government bureaucrats and administrators and corporate H.R. directors, a month out of the office constitutes a vacation, but for the classes below, it could be the beginning of a long spiral, a real one. Of waiters, bartenders, retail workers, huge parts of the service industry on which we are dependent could see their income dropped to zero and not come back.” Carlson called the “guaranteed basic income” proposed by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney a “well-meaning” idea but in actuality “decadent and foolish.” “Name a place that’s become happier and more prosperous under a scheme like that,” he said before lauding the German system that allows employers to place their workers on “reduced hours” with the government making up the difference.)
