FORBES
— Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Retirement Pay Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History – Adam Andrzejewski
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $132,845/year in today’s dollars. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,864/year today a) because my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old, b) because my Democrat IRS superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-12, c) because my Democrat GAO superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-13, and d) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and had worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and had almost a year of unused sick leave. Generally, you reach the 80% limitation when you have worked for the federal government for 42 years not including accumulated sick leave; that would have been 2010 for me. 80% of GS-13 Step 10 salary is $106,276/year. 80% of GS-14 Step 10 salary is $125,583/year. 80% of GS-15 Step 10 salary and Senior Executive Service salary is $138,000/year.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/12/28/dr-anthony-faucis-retirement-pay-will-exceed-350000-per-year–the-largest-in-us-federal-government-history/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee. For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019. . .Federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. . .So, at this point, we can use only the last three published years of his salary — 2018: $399,625; 2019: $417,608; and 2020: $434,312 — to calculate his potential retirement earnings. Dr. Fauci earned a total of $1.252 million from 2018-2020 in salary as a federal employee. If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745). However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%).

— SALARY TABLE 2022-CHI
(COMMENT: In 2022 dollars, I earned a) $136,387/year working for GAO in 1997, b) $104,915/year working for GAO in 1986, c) $99,994/year working for IRS in 1980, d) $88,229/year working for IRS in 1974, e) $73,611/year working for IRS in 1973, f) $60,840/year working for IRS in 1972, g) $49,738/year working for IRS in 1971, h) $18.40/hour working for the Post Office in 1969, and $17.25/hour working for the Post Office in 1966. My 2022 Civil Service Retirement System pension will be $58,101/year. That is a) $2,739/year less than what my IRS salary was in 1972 in today’s dollars and b) only 43% what my GAO salary was in 1997 in today’s dollars.)

CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY
— MAY 19, 2014 FLASHBACK: A wealth of advice. Nearly $2 billion flowed through consultants in 2003-2004 federal elections. – Sandy Bergo
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have acted like they took advice from my critics/opponents a) to not read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to blame me and my newsletters for all their problems, for all your problems, for all my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Previously, my critics/opponents blamed what I did raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and my serving as a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2000-2004.)
https://publicintegrity.org/politics/elections/campaign-consultants/a-wealth-of-advice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the 2004 federal races, more than $1.85 billion flowed through a professional corps of consultants whose influence plays an important, though largely unexamined, role in the unrelenting escalation of campaign spending, a groundbreaking Center for Public Integrity study has found. The money going to these consultants amounted to more than half of the total spending by presidential candidates, national party committees, general election candidates for Congress, and so-called “527”s — independent political groups. The high cost of running for office raises concerns because fundraising demands can ultimately bind elected officials to special interest donors and lobbyists who help with fundraising — deepening the widely held perception that politicians serve the interests of large contributors over those of constituents. Potential candidates who can’t meet the fundraising demands are shut out.)

— Lifestyle Inflation Can Make You Broke (Even With a High Income) — How To Not Fall Into the Trap – Jami Farkas
(COMMENT: My wife and I have always tried to live on just one of our incomes, granted, on whichever income was the highest. We have always kept close track of our income and expenses. We have always put the maximums into tax-deferred savings accounts. Living on just one of our incomes became much more difficult when my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. That cut my income by 59%/year. Living on just one of our incomes became impossible when my wife retired. Ever-increasingly, we are spending more than my Civil Service Retirement System pension and our Social Security, and ever-increasingly, we have to spend down our retirement savings.)
https://www.gobankingrates.com/money/financial-planning/lifestyle-inflation-can-make-you-broke-even-with-high-income-how-to-not-fall-into-trap/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Make a Budget. Now that you know exactly what you must spend each month, figure out how you’ll spend the leftover. That’s necessary to break the cycle of lifestyle inflation, said Jennifer Stein, a certified financial planner and director of client engagement at Priebe Wealth. “To escape this, look at the income you’re making, the bills you have, and what is left over,” Stein said. “Then determine how much you will save and make this your priority. Pay yourself first. After you’ve saved, you can use some of the extra disposable income for things you enjoy and can afford, whether it’s an extra vacation throughout the year or fancy date nights in the city.”)

— How to keep stress during college from sabotaging your future – Victoria Bell
(COMMENT: What caused you the most stress while you were earning your bachelor’s degree? For me, it was fearing that I would not be able to get a good job when I graduated. Potential employers saw me as being draft bait. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Further, they were under big pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Consequently, I accepted the only job offer that I got. But that job did not really require a bachelor’s degree, it did not provide me with valuable work experience, advancement opportunities were limited, and my boss, who did not hire me, disapproved of my avoiding the draft, having a college degree, being a Republican, being Protestant, and being German American.)

My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me to resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes could hint/imply/argue/shout that because I am a Republican Precinct Committeeman, the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party manipulate/dominate me. But the facts show otherwise. I am elected, not appointed. Every 2 years, I continue to run for Republican Precinct Committeeman notwithstanding the many adverse actions that the aforesaid, their operatives, and their dupes have taken against me. Of course, those adverse actions have harmed my ability to get out the vote for Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct. Ever-increasingly, MTRO leaders make it clear a) that they would never appoint me as a Republican Precinct Committeeman and that they blame me for all the problems that they and MTRO have had, are having, and will have.)

(COMMENT: Who are the elites in the organizations that you are a member of, in your municipality, in your township, in your county, and in Illinois? What do they think of you? How do they treat you? I should write a book about the elites in the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have taken the most adverse actions against me. They stopped me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks. They gerrymandered my precinct in 2015. They ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012. They ended my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011. They ended my MTRO webmaster service in 2010 and 2004. They ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007. They almost got ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006. They ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004. They ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004.)

I would ask them if they support the traditional marriage, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.
https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/07/politics/bannon-podcast-war-room-election-lies/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Bannon has also urged “War Room” listeners to take long-term action. He has made frequent pleas for supporters to reshape the Republican party by signing up to serve as “precinct committeemen.” Those are low-level local positions. As Bannon has emphasized, though, they matter. People in precinct posts can be influential in choosing representatives to serve on local elections boards and to fill key offices within each state’s party apparatus. They also frequently serve as local elections workers. . .There is no hard data on the impact of Bannon’s call to activism. But ProPublica reported in September that counties around the country had seen an unusual surge in people looking to sign up for Republican precinct positions after Bannon began advocating the idea early this year.)

— Babylon Bee makes fun of the Left in newly released ‘Guide to Wokeness’ – Michael Gryboski
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes paint themselves as being woke and champions of the oppressed. I should write a book about them. To paint me as being an oppressor, they stress that I am White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, childless, non-dog owner, gun owner, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844 and have owned land in America since 1854, Crete resident 1948-1972, new car owner since 1966, real estate owner since 1972, Wheaton resident since 1978, federal employee for almost 30 years, federal retiree for more than 24 years, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, etc.)
https://www.christianpost.com/books/babylon-bee-pokes-fun-at-the-left-in-new-guide-to-wokeness.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The minds behind the popular Christian satire site The Babylon Bee have released a new book that pokes fun at the ideas and actions of those who identify as “woke.” The Babylon Bee Guide to Wokeness was released earlier this month as a satirical critique of woke ideology. The book was dedicated to communist dictator Joseph Stalin, whom it calls a “woke hero” and “champion of the oppressed proletariat.” The book promises to help readers “take your wokeness to the next level by canceling friends, breaking windows, and burning it all to the ground.” “Wokeness isn’t a private religion you can keep to yourself,” explains the introduction. “Once you see the world through woke eyes, you’ll never be the same, and you’ll never be able to stop telling your friends about your new beliefs. Kind of like when you join CrossFit or become vegan — or get an air fryer.” The guide defines “woke” as “[f]inding your identity not in objective reality, but in your feelings,” “[w]orshiping the planet because humanity is evil,” “[f]inding the racism, sexism, and hatred in everything” and “[b]rainwashing your kids to hate life and be miserable.” “Because you don’t want to raise a generation of happy, well-adjusted kids — that’s what NAZIS do,” the guide warns.)

FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL
— Tell Congress not to draft our daughters!
(COMMENT: My biggest mistake in my life was my avoiding the draft. I got student draft deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. I should write a book about those who have used my avoiding the draft against me the most. I would focus on the adverse actions that a) my Democrat Post Office superiors took against me 1966-1969, b) my Democrat Firestone superior took against me 1970-1972, c) my Democrat IRS superiors took against me 1971-1980, and d) my Democrat GAO superiors took against me 1980-1997. Further, I graduated from NIU in August of 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management. Employers were under increasing pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Employers saw me as being draft bait. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. I accepted the only job offer that I got, to be the Retail Sales Manager in Firestone’s Chicago Heights store. The job did not really require a bachelor’s degree. Immediately after my application was approved in February of 1971, Oldsmobile offered me a job that I accepted. That resulted in my Firestone Store boss rudely firing me. But Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me to resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

He rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice. But then, Oldsmobile withdrew its job offer and that directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

(COMMENT: Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs use A.I. to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, 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. Google uses A.I. a) to steer everyone to websites that promote the Democrat, Libertarian, and/or Green party platforms and b) to steer everyone away from websites that promote the Republican Party platform.)

— Served without regret – James W. Anderson, Vietnam 1967-1968, Talladega, Alabama
(COMMENT: My biggest mistake in my life was my avoiding the draft. I got student draft deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. I should write a book about those who have used my avoiding the draft against me the most. I would focus on the adverse actions that a) my Democrat Post Office superiors took against me 1966-1969, b) my Democrat Firestone superior took against me 1970-1972, c) my Democrat IRS superiors took against me 1971-1980, and d) my Democrat GAO superiors took against me 1980-1997.)

(FROM THE LETTER: By the end of our campaign in Vietnam, roughly half of America did not support the war effort. We witnessed hundreds flee to Canada or other foreign countries to avoid the draft. Where were you during this era? Did you answer the call either as a volunteer or a draftee? Or were you one who chose to not serve, by either fleeing your country or having an affluent connection help you dodge your duty? Or maybe you chose to join a local National Guard unit to stay out of Vietnam?)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— In 2018, Pritzker spent $171 million of his personal fortune to unseat Rauner. Griffin donated $22.5 million to Rauner for that race, and millions more in his 2014 run for governor. In 2020, Griffin spent nearly $54 million to defeat the graduated income tax measure that Pritzker spent $58 million to support. Griffin’s spokesman confirmed his boss will bankroll a challenge to Pritzker. The four Republicans so far in the June 28 primary are state Sen. Darren Bailey, former state Sen. Paul Schimpf, businessman Gary Rabine, and venture capitalist Jesse Sullivan. The big question mark: Will Reps. Adam Kinzinger or Rodney Davis throw their hat in the ring? Either of them would likely get Griffin’s nod. Not on the list is Todd Ricketts. He just stepped down as Republican National Committee finance chair, but a source close to the Cubs co-owner said his exit from the RNC was long planned and that he is not making a play for the governor’s mansion. Democrats might like the idea of Griffin in the midterm mix. A race between Pritzker and anyone Griffin backs could energize the top of the ticket. No offense to the secretary of state candidates.- Shia Kapos

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Open book: Salary of Glenbard Township High School District 87 teacher Kathy Holmberg
(COMMENT: Since 1966, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the federal government overpaid me. In today’s dollars, GAO paid me $132,845/year in 1997, IRS paid me $97,395/year in 1980, and the Post Office paid me $17.93/hour in 1969. In my defense, 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. Since 1997, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that my Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension, currently $54,864/year, is too generous. In my defense, my CSRS pension is dramatically less because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and took many adverse actions against me before that. Further, my Social Security should be $6,570/year. But it is only $2,190/year because I get a CSRS pension.)
