I should write a book about the biggest RINOs in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton. RINOs focus on destroying those who do not hate Trump and those who support the traditional marriage/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.

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Free college, universal preschool among the goals for Pritzker in his bid for second term – Dean Olsen
(DIERSEN: Republicans should blast Pritzker for promoting dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.sj-r.com/story/news/2021/07/21/gov-pritzker-cutting-corporate-welfare-help-expand-education/8048035002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy said in a statement that Pritzker’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been a failure. “Gov. Pritzker failed our most vulnerable in their time of need,” said Tracy, a Springfield resident. “When our children missed an entire year of in-person education, Pritzker was silent while political teachers unions forced children to stay home even when the science and CDC said they should be back in school. “When thousands of Illinoisans were laid off from work, they went weeks without help from Pritzker’s incompetent state unemployment agency,” Tracy said. “And when our nation’s elderly heroes needed protection from the virus in our state facilities, the tragic mistakes of the Pritzker administration led to the death of 36 veterans at LaSalle Veterans Home.”)

In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” so that they could give my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate, which they did. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have no problem with the aforesaid. According to them, I should the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion big time, that is, pay reparations big time, because I am White, male, healthy, draft avoider, non-poor, Protestant, 100% German American, conservative, Republican, married since 1978, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.), who was fully vaccinated early this year, all recently tested positive for COVID-19 with mild or no symptoms.

— Facebook onboards another 31 newsletter writers on Bulletin – Amanda Silberling
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about my direct competitors who do everything that they can to a) stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) stop everyone from reading those newsletters. I would focus on my direct competitors who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who reject the traditional marriage/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. I would focus on my direct competitors who disapprove of, if not despise, one or more of my demographics: White, male, old (born in 1948), baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German national origin, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, Crete resident 1948-1972, Wheaton resident since 1978, non-poor, draft avoider, heterosexual, married, childless, pet-less, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, gun owner, federal employee for almost 30 years, federal retiree for almost 24 years, etc. I would focus on my direct competitors who destroy those like me they cannot manipulate/dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover-up their wrong doing, and/or who refuse to give them money.)
https://techcrunch.com/2021/07/20/facebook-onboards-another-31-newsletter-writers-on-bulletin/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bulletin boasts a breadth of free content and contains minimal Facebook branding — it’s hosted on its own separate website, not the Facebook app. But newsletter writers can choose which content to put behind a paywall, which readers purchase access to, of course, via Facebook Pay. Newsletter subscribers might also gain access to subscriber-only Facebook groups, Live Audio Rooms and podcasts — so, Bulletin helps Facebook funnel subscribers into other products under its growing brand. But while Bulletin grows as a curated, invite-only platform for public figures that’s more exclusive than Raya, other platforms have struggled with the ethics of content moderation.)

My father had died suddenly in 1969 and potential employers did not believe that my financial hardship draft deferment application would be approved. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I was the store’s salesman. The Firestone Stores Chicago District Office hired me. I asked to be assigned to the Chicago Heights store because I lived with my mother and brother in Crete. My Chicago Heights Firestone Store manager would not have hired me. Sadly, he disapproved of my following demographics: Republican, draft avoider, German American, and Missouri Synod Lutheran. He refused to let me start until I passed a probationary period working for the Firestone Store in Gary. After I had worked for him for 7 months, he rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.)

Parents are especially concerned for all the elementary students 11-years-old and younger who are not eligible for the vaccine. The district contains several elementary schools. “We all have sacrificed, we need to do our part in the last few months to continue to protect everyone until the option is available for school-aged children,” said Jill Caballero, parent. “I don’t think we’re out of the woods yet, and I think the Delta variant is a great concern to me and to my family,” said Daniel Vissers, parent. Supt. Dr. Jeff Schuler was not available for an interview but did respond with an emailed statement. It read in part, “District 200 is very cognizant of the CDC guidance and continues to prioritize student safety in our back to school planning, as we have done over the last 12 month.” As long as there are layered mitigations, Dr. Schuler said the CDC guidance does allow for local school districts to make adjustments to the mitigations.)

— Parents Raise Concerns After Suburban School Districts Change Mask Rules. The state is leaving it up to local school districts to decide if masks are required, and that is not sitting well with some parents. – Chris Coffey
https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/parents-raise-concerns-after-suburban-school-districts-change-mask-rules/2556917/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Several dozen parents in west suburban Wheaton rallied and marched to Community Unit School District 200 headquarters Friday afternoon to demand the district continue to require masks in classrooms. The school district recently decided masks would be optional at all grade levels when the new school year begins. “It feels like they don’t care about my child’s health,” said parent Charlotte Sobota. The state is leaving it up to local school districts to decide if masks are required, and that is not sitting well with some parents. “You do not take away the preventative health measure that is most proven to work,” said parent and rally organizer Ronak Maisuria. District 200 said it is continuing mitigations such as masks on buses and physical distancing at 3 feet. The district also said it is cognizant of CDC guidance, and if local conditions suggest a need to adjust practices, “we will do that as we did all last year as plans adjusted.”)

— ‘Not Sending My Child Back’: Parents Of Wheaton School District Upset About Mask Optional Rule – Megan Hickey
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2021/07/16/parents-wheaton-school-district-upset-mask-optional/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This week, District 200 in Wheaton opted to make masks optional for all students, which didn’t sit well with everyone. Some parents even rallied outside the superintendent’s office Friday afternoon. The march to the Community Unit School District 200 building on Friday was prompted by a vote earlier this week to make masks optional. It’s diverging from the CDC’s recent recommendation that only students and teachers who are fully vaccinated should drop the masks. “I thought it was a no brainer at the elementary school level. I thought my daughter would be going to school in the first grade and everyone would be wearing a mask in the room.” District 200 mom Ronak Maisuria. “It’s not about my family, this is about our community,” added fellow District 200 mom Jessica Banaszek. They organized some like-minded parents who still plan to mask their children, but worry that won’t be enough to safeguard their health. “So right now I’m telling you I’m not sending my child back to school on August 23,” said Banaszek. “They have their choice, but their choice takes away the safety of everyone around them.” The topic is polarizing, to say the least.)

July 13 Morning Edition

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— LOOK WHO’s TALKING FOR THE GOP Illinois GOP Chairman Don Tracy sent a letter to Republican leaders Monday expressing frustration that MSNBC, CNN and local media turn to Republican consultants who “trash” other Republicans. “When they are listed as current or former party officials, it falsely gives the impression that these people are speaking for all Republicans in Illinois or the Chicago area,” according to Tracy’s email, obtained by Playbook. He doesn’t name names but it’s not hard to figure out that former state GOP Chairman Pat Brady doesn’t mince words about far-right Republicans when he’s interviewed by reporters. Tracy is the first downstate chairman of the Illinois GOP in more than 30 years. He lives in Springfield, three hours from Chicago, making it difficult to accommodate live broadcasts. So he’s now assigning two surrogate Republicans in northern Illinois, Kathleen Murphy and Ammie Kessem, to represent the party during TV interviews when he can’t make it. The issue is the surrogates tapped align better with Republicans south of I-80 than those in the Chicago area. Murphy is the former spokeswoman for former GOP gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives and a defender of Ives’ controversial TV ad attacking Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s record by featuring actors playing out sensitive cultural issues. It was uniformly criticized, including by the state GOP, for being racist, sexist and homophobic. Kessem, the 41st Ward GOP committeewoman, is a Chicago Police sergeant and avowed Donald Trump supporter. In an interview with Playbook, Tracy said that Murphy and Kessem “aren’t going out there to represent themselves. They are there to represent the Illinois GOP.” They will both work closely with Illinois GOP communication director Joe Hackler. “I don’t represent any wing of the party. I represent the entire Republican Party. And they will do the same,” Tracy said. Though Tracy’s TV accessibility to Chicago may be a challenge, the real problem for the GOP is handling the tension between moderate Republicans (generally in the northern part of the state) and those who align with Trumpism downstate. Party leaders kept quiet, for example, when asked to address controversial Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene coming to Illinois to stump for GOP Rep. Mary Miller. Along with backing up Tracy on TV, the GOP is working to expand its roster of voices to include women and minorities who can speak for the party. Tracy’s letter has already generated interest. Stepping up are GOP State Central Committee members Jay Reyes and Nimish Jani, Republican National Hispanic Assembly Chair Jesus Solorio, Palatine Township Republican committeeman Aaron Del Mar, and Diante Johnson, president of the Black Conservative Federation. – SHIA KAPOS
(DIERSEN: I have never hinted, implied, argued, or shouted that I or my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters have in any way ever spoken for the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), or Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO).

I have always encouraged the IRP, DCRCC, MTRO, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, and Illinois Center Right Coalition to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Republican Party platform including its traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks.)

CAPITOL FAX
— SEPTEMBER 11, 2004 FLASHBACK: Wheaton: Alan Keyes’ Patriot Day speech warmly received – Dave Diersen
(DIERSEN: Robert Sandberg attended this event.)
https://capitalfax.blogspot.com/2008/09/gopusa-illinois-daily-clips-september_11.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over 500 came to Wheaton’s beautiful Memorial Park on Saturday, September 11, 2004, to meet Alan Keyes and to hear his remarks concerning Patriot Day and his campaign. Alan was warmly received by the crowd which gave him several standing ovations during his 20-minute speech. State Senators Kirk Dillard and Peter Roskam served as Master of Ceremonies. Senator Dillard introduced the elected officials and candidates who were on the band shell stage with Alan while he gave his speech — State Senator Raymond Soden, State Representative Randy Hultgren, State Representative Candidate Roger Jenisch, DuPage County Board Commissioner Debra Olson, DuPage Coroner candidate Peter Siekmann, Illinois GOP State Central Committeeman Ron Smith, Milton Township Assessor Jim Gumm, and Milton Township Trustee Don Sender. The band shell stage is the same one that Bob Dole gave a speech from immediately after he walked in Wheaton’s 1996 Independence Day Parade — CNN broadcast that speech live. Senator Dillard recognized event attendees including DuPage County Auditor Jim Rasins, DuPage County Regional Superintendent of Schools Darlene Ruscitti, DuPage Regional School Board Trustee Tim Whelan, and District 89 School Board Trustee Howard Levine. He recognized the event’s sponsors — State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman, Oberweis Dairy, John Cox, All Star Printing, himself, Randy Hultgren, Debra Olson, Pete Siekmann, Tim Whelan, Don Sender, and Diersen Consulting. Senator Roskam gave some remarks concerning September 11 and he introduced Alan. Apparently, even though the Daily Herald, the Wheaton Leader, and the Wheaton Sun had been asked to cover the event, the only reporters who covered the event were Rich Samuels with WTTW’s Chicago Tonight and Dave Diersen with GOPUSA.com. Samuels and Diersen made VHS recordings of Alan’s speech. Event photographers included Matt Ferguson and Don Sender. The free event provided attendees with a great opportunity to enjoy great food, to meet their neighbors, to meet their elected officials, and to meet candidates who will appear on November 2 ballots in DuPage County. On July 5 last year, 200 attended a similar event in Wheaton’s Prairie Path Park, including Jack Ryan, Jim Oberweis, Andy McKenna, Chirinjeev Kathuria, and John Cox. Attendees at this year’s event enjoyed hot dogs and Polish sausages personally handed out by Debbie Malek from her cart. Debbie normally locates her cart at Cross and Wesley Streets at the southeast corner of Wheaton’s Adam’s Park, across the street from Wheaton’s Public Library. All the hot dogs and sausages were paid for by State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman. In its September 12, 2004 edition, the Daily Herald ran a major front page story on Debbie that included six pictures and quotes from Ron Smith. Attendees also enjoyed Oberweis ice cream and flavored milk personally handed out by Jim Oberweis and Sandy Rios from an Oberweis truck. Attendees enjoyed Jays potato chips provided by John Cox, salads and desserts that attendees brought to the picnic or were purchased with cash contributions, and soft drinks and ice paid for by the sponsors. Event costs included $180 for a $1 million insurance policy required for City of Wheaton and Wheaton Park District permits. The many people who helped make the event successful include Karen Diersen, Mark Prutzman, Bill Hogan, Mark Stern, and Gary Muehlfelt. Attendees included Rod McCulloch, Peter LaBarbera, Frank Penn, Richard Johns, Robert Gordon, George Kocan, Robert Sandberg, Leonard Sanchez, Lori Carlson, Richard Russo, Steve Carlson, Keith Carlson, Jason Hinkle, Mark Klage, Patrick Ryan, and Dr. Bob Krzyzewski. Alan will again be speaking in DuPage County on Friday, October 8, at 6:30 PM, at the Milton Township Republican Central Committee’s Viva Oktoberfest fundraiser at the Carlisle Banquet Hall in Lombard. Tickets are $45 or $400/table of ten.)
— SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 FLASHBACK: Nalepa gives keynote address at Wheaton’s 2005 Patriot Day picnic; Birkett, Brady, Fortner, Furstenau, Hultgren, Kathuria, Oberweis, Poe, Rauschenberger, Roskam, Rutherford, Wallace, Wegman, Zaruba, and many others attend – Dave Diersen
https://capitalfax.blogspot.com/2008/09/gopusa-illinois-daily-clips-september_11.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton’s 2005 Patriot Day picnic in Memorial Park honored the individuals who lost their lives as a result of terrorist attacks against America and showed support for America, for its war on terrorism, and for its military and law enforcement personnel. I had the honor of introducing the event’s master of ceremonies — nationally-known conservative activist, Fox News Channel contributor, and Culture Campaign President Sandy Rios. Wheaton Second Baptist Church Pastor Andre Allen gave the invocation. Korean War veteran Ron Smith led the pledge of allegiance. Harry Newman sang the National Anthem. Rios read President Bush’s 2005 Patriot Day proclamation, introduced the elected officials and candidates, and thanked the event sponsors. DuPage County Board Member Bob Heap spoke about DuPage’s implementation of 9/11 recommendations. 9/11 Families for a Secure America founder Peter Gadiel gave an outstanding speech about lessons learned from September 11, 2001. West Point graduate and USO board member Jim Nalepa gave an outstanding Patriot Day address. Newman concluded the program by singing “We still have heroes.” Attendees enjoyed delicious Debbie Malek hot dogs and Polish sausages courtesy of State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman, delicious pork sandwiches courtesy of State Representative Ray Poe, delicious Dr. Bob Rauschenbergers courtesy of State Senator Steve Rauschenberger, delicious Jays Potato Chips courtesy of John Cox, delicious ice cream and flavored milk courtesy of Jim Oberweis, and delicious soft drinks and bottled water courtesy of Charinijeev Kathuria. All Star Printing provided event flyers and DuPage County Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom and Kane County Recorder Sandy Wegman covered the $385 cost of event insurance. The picnic provided attendees with a great opportunity to meet and speak with veterans, law enforcement officials, fire department officials, elected officials, and candidates. Many elected officials attended including State Senators Bill Brady, Carol Pankau, Rauschenberger, Peter Roskam, and Dan Rutherford; State Representatives Randy Hultgren, Roger Jenisch, and Poe; County officials Joe Birkett, Fred Bucholz, Heap, Gwen Henry, Gary King, Debra Olson, Jim Rasins, Darlene Ruscitti, Brien Sheahan, Pete Siekmann, Penny Wegman, Sandy Wegman, Tim Whelan, Jon Zahm, and John Zaruba; Township officials Sal Falbo, Moon Kahn, Gary Muehlfelt, and Leonard Sanchez; Municipal officials Alan Bolds, Jim Carr, Liz Corry, Mike Fortner, Dick Furstenau, and Howard Levine. Many candidates attended including congressional candidate Roskam; gubernatorial candidates Birkett, Brady, Oberweis, and Rauschenberger; Lieutenant Governor candidates Kathuria, Poe, Eric Wallace, and Wegman; Secretary of State candidate Rutherford; State Senate candidates Furstenau and Hultgren; and State Representative candidate Fortner. Former DuPage County Recorder Rick Carney and Mrs. Illinois Kaili Harding and her husband who graduated from West Point and served in both Afghanistan and Iraq also attended. By tomorrow, when I know how many of each type of food and beverage was served, I’ll have a better estimate of the number of the hundreds of people who attended. The many attendees included David Carlin, Dennis Driscoll, Bob Grahm, Joyce Hundhausen, Mark Klage, Jim Leahy, Bruce Mitroff, Mark Stern, Rick Veenstra, and Winston Waller. DuPage County is the second most populous county in Illinois and Wheaton is its county seat. Why didn’t the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Daily Herald, Wheaton Leader, or the Wheaton Sun report on Wheaton’s Patriot Day event? Generally, the liberal media does not report on an event unless it can use that reporting to harm conservatives, that is, harm people who support the Republican platform. The vast majority of the attendees at Wheaton’s Patriot Day picnic were conservative Republicans — why didn’t more Democrats and RINOs attend? A number of Democrats told me that they would not attend because they are Democrats and because their attendance might be misinterpreted as support for President Bush. Attendance would have been even greater if fewer Democrats didn’t argue that Republicans have highjacked Patriot Day to promote the Patriot Act and President Bush’s policies in Iraq; if Blagojevich, Durbin, Hynes, Madigan, Obama, Quinn, or Topinka had helped sponsor event or confirmed that they would attend; if more Democrats and more RINOs shared the attitude toward patriotism and toward Patriot Day that Republicans have; if the Daily Herald had promoted the event like it promoted Naperville’s event; if there were not so many other competing events; and if the temperature/humidity had been lower.)

— Joe Biden’s Car Collection: From the Corvette Stingray to an Electric Ford – SAMANTHA LOCK
(DIERSEN: I should write an article that compares and contrasts Biden’s car collection with my car collection.)
https://www.newsweek.com/joe-bidens-car-collection-corvette-stingray-electric-ford-1592808

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray However, the car reported to be closest to his heart—a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray—was gifted to the then 24-year-old as a wedding present from his father in the August of 1967. The Goodwood-green colored convertible still sits in Biden’s garage and even appeared alongside his presidential campaign. “I love this car. Nothing but incredible memories,” Biden said standing next to the vintage vehicle in a campaign video from August 2020. “Every time I get in I think of my dad and Beau [his late son].” The 1967 variant was the last in the C2 Corvette range. “The Secret Service won’t let me drive it. I’m not allowed to drive anything. It’s the one thing I hate about this job. I’m serious,” Biden said. With up to 350 horsepower, a V8 engine and the ability to reach speeds of 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds, it’s easy to see why Biden treasures the 1967 classic. Appearing on an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage in October of 2016, Biden impressed viewers by taking the comedian for a spin and performing a burnout in his ’67 Corvette Stingray. “I’ve always loved to drive… I like speed,” he told Leno while adding that his sons Beau and Hunter had the car’s engine rebuilt as a Christmas gift. According to Biden at the time, the meeting marked only the third time the Secret Service allowed him to drive his beloved car during his eight-year stint as vice president.)

(DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, Inclusion, and reparations.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2021/07/11/conservative-national-radio-host-wayne-allyn-root-announces-support-for-black-reparations-n2592315
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yes, it’s true. I’m that Wayne Allyn Root. I’m the nationally syndicated conservative radio talk show host. And former conservative television host on Newsmax TV. And bestselling conservative author of 14 books — including “Trump Rules,” “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” “Angry White Male” and “The Murder of the Middle Class.” I’m the last guy you’d ever imagine coming out in support of reparations for black Americans. But it’s true. I’m going to be the first high-profile conservative to support reparations. Black Americans deserve reparations. Let’s be honest. Look at their cities in ruins. Black inner cities in America look like Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the atomic bombs hit. Have you been to any of them lately? Of course not. What sane person would take a chance by driving through the Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn, or Crown Heights, or Bedford Stuyvesant, or Harlem or the infamous South Bronx? Or how about Chicago’s black South Side? How about virtually all-black inner cities in Detroit; Baltimore; East St Louis; Newark, New Jersey; Oakland, California; Liberty City in Miami; Cleveland; New Orleans, Memphis, Tennessee; Atlanta and more. The list goes on and on. These places are synonymous with murder, violent gangs and violent crime. Black cities and neighborhoods are a war zone. A black-on-black genocide. An American tragedy. Not to mention the drug needles, poop, pee, condoms and garbage that litter their mean and hopeless streets. Black lives do matter. So, yes, they do deserve reparations. But who is to blame? It’s sure not white Americans. Most of us have had nothing to do with the decline of black America. The vast majority of white Americans have never done a bad thing to a black person in our lives. We don’t run their cities. We don’t go near their cities. We literally have nothing to do with black America. And none of us were alive for slavery or the civil war, or Jim Crow. My grandparents came to America in the 1920s. They lived in New York. They experienced their own prejudice and discrimination. My relatives had nothing to do with slavery, racism or any civil rights violations. So, yes blacks are owed reparations. But who’s to blame? There’s only one common denominator: DEMOCRATS. The Democratic Party and Democratic politicians are to blame. It’s the Democratic Party and Democratic politicians who should pay the trillions of dollars. It’s the policies of the Democratic Party that have led to poverty; misery; violent crime through the roof; retail theft on a level never imagined; homelessness; hopelessness; rampant drug dealing and addiction; no fathers in black homes; burned-out buildings; abandoned stores; lack of supermarkets; and streets filled with poop, pee, garbage, condoms and drug needles.)

TEXAS MONTHLY
— Meet the Four Republicans Who Want to Replace Allen West as Texas GOP Chair. The next party leader could continue to wage war on errant Republican elected officials or oversee a détente. – Jonathan Tilove
(DIERSEN: One could compare and contrast the Texas Republican Party with the Illinois Republican Party.)
https://www.texasmonthly.com/news-politics/texas-gop-chair-candidates/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: David Covey, one of four candidates to lead the Texas Republican party, has positioned himself as a moderate on perhaps the most pressing issue in the race. On the question of working with Republican elected officials, he doesn’t want Armageddon so much as a reasonable degree of tactical violence. “I don’t think we need to work hand in hand, but I don’t think we need to nuke them either,” Covey, currently the Orange County chairman and representative of Senate District 3 on the State Republican Executive Committee, said at a June 29 forum in Port Neches. “We have to be able to put pressure on our legislators, like a sniper. We pick our target, we ensure we don’t have collateral damage—even the party itself—and then we pull the trigger to make sure we get our priorities passed.” Martial metaphors aside, the 32-year-old Covey represents, believe it or not, something of the peace candidate to lead the Texas GOP past the testosterone-fueled, QAnon-inflected tenure of Allen West, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and former one-term congressman from Florida. For the past year of his short but chaotic reign as party chair, West mostly trained his unfriendly fire on fellow Republicans, including Governor Greg Abbott, whom he characterized as a tyrant for his pandemic response, and House Speaker Dade Phelan, whom he described as a traitor for seeking some Democratic votes to gain the gavel. On June 4, West surprised many by abruptly announcing that he would be stepping down as chairman effective July 11, midway through his two-year term. A month later, on July 4, West formally declared that he would be challenging Abbott, setting off what is likely to be a brutal primary battle.)

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. To qualify myself for better jobs, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

(DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that Oldsmobile had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint.

CRT is the cultural battle of our time. – William A. Jacobson

IDAHO PRESS
— Ensure lasting liberty by getting involved – TOM LUNA
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Organization and how they have treated Republican Precinct Committeemen in Illinois, in DuPage County, and Milton Township since 2000.)
https://www.idahopress.com/opinion/guest_opinions/guest-opinion-ensure-lasting-liberty-by-getting-involved/article_6f9a5c03-3aac-5f5a-bf95-444662eae10b.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are also many grassroots opportunities in your local communities. The best leadership is local leadership, and Idaho has a strong network of local leaders. Each county has a Republican Central Committee that organizes, campaigns, and elects Republican candidates. Each central committee is comprised of precinct committee people, who are elected during primary elections every two years. Each voting precinct has a committee person (these are your neighbors!), so contact your local precinct committeeman and ask how you can become involved. It’s easy. You can visit idgop.org/county-parties for contacts in your community.)
