(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans on both sides of the conflict are acknowledging openly that they are headed for a showdown. “Hell yes, we are,” said Rep.

Kinzinger was equally blunt when asked how he and other anti-Trump Republicans could dilute the president’s clout in primaries. “We beat him,” he said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: African-American and Latino students make up about 68% of Peoria Public Schools. This means a bill passed by the Illinois House and Senate on racial inequity in education would be especially impactful to the district. “It’s definitely significant (because of) our minority numbers, and then our low-income numbers are in the 70s. So this speaks to us,” said Dr. Sharon Desmoulin-Kherat, Peoria Public Schools Superintendent.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO
— The Illinois GOP has an opportunity—even now. Yes, they’re facing a crisis of epic proportions in the post-Trump era. But don’t underestimate Illinois Democrats’ ability to overreach—and to ignore the dangers of failing to appeal to voters in the middle. – GREG HINZ
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-politics/illinois-gop-has-opportunity-even-now
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Call it the Adam Kinzinger conundrum. Ask top Illinois Republicans who can lead the party back to the glory days, the days when the party’s nominee could grab a U.S. Senate seat or defeat Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and they’ll drop Kinzinger’s name. And almost as quickly, they’ll openly wonder whether the southwest suburban congressman who voted to impeach President Donald Trump can win a GOP primary and make it to the general election. So it goes for a GOP that, both in Illinois and nationally, is going through an existential identity crisis, one whose results will affect all of us and not just Republicans. Trump is toast. History. Soon to leave the White House and, after the invasion of Capitol Hill, without any real prospect to again hold public office or remain the dominant figure in the GOP. It may take a while but, like an ice cube in the sun, he’ll melt away, caught alone in a tweet-less land. But if Trump is gone, his voters and their issues remain. To deny them, to ignore their calls and their concerns, is to beg for another Trump to rise up later. “I don’t believe in a cult of personality,” says former gubernatorial and congressional hopeful Jeanne Ives, a cultural and economic conservative by anyone’s measure. But while the GOP needs to “take the rhetoric down,” she adds, “people want someone who is fighting for them. . . .People are tired of big government with no solutions.” Now, one of the reasons why many voters consider government to be the enemy is because of the garbage some of their leaders from Fox News-land are feeding them. You know, the enablers, the folks who helped peddle the line that arguably the most investigated and litigated presidential contest in American history has been rigged and unfairly decided. Like downstate U.S. Reps. Mike Bost and Mary Miller. Even as the Capitol was still reeling from the impact of a cop-battering, glass-breaking mob, they voted to give the mob what it wanted: a halt to certification of the presidential winner for no good reason beyond Trump’s heart’s desire. Or Todd Ricketts. He and his siblings own the Chicago Cubs, and some think his deep wallet might make Ricketts a candidate for statewide office or a major backer thereof sometime soon. But if Ricketts has any regrets for heading fundraising for Trump, he hasn’t voiced them. I’ve asked. Or the four other Republican congressmen from Illinois who couldn’t bring themselves to join Kinzinger and vote to hold the instigator in chief to account. That having been said, while some surely are flat-earthers and anti-vaxxers, 2.5 million Illinoisans voted for Trump. Their issues, be it tax rates, public safety or jobs, need to be addressed. They count. The truth is that, with Republicans in disarray, Illinois Democrats are utterly full of themselves, convinced in their gut they can do what they want because no one will call them to account. I’ll admit the Illinois House recently did finally retire Speaker Mike Madigan—after a decade of bad publicity and a growing series of federal indictments in the Commonwealth Edison scandal, that is. But those same legislative Democrats in that same legislative session also voted to boost Chicago firefighter pensions that the city already can’t pay for, costing hundreds of millions of dollars. The Dems also voted to further boost the bargaining clout of a Chicago Teachers Union that literally wants to own both sides of the bargaining table. Why? Because the unions wanted it, that’s why. And rank-and-file Democratic lawmakers don’t have the guts to say no. What I’m saying is that Illinois Republicans have opportunity, even now. Democrats are quite capable of soiling their own nest. But to reach millions of voters in the middle, the GOP somehow has to cleanse a brand that now is horridly tarnished. Please, give me real choice on Election Day.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/vandalize-a-term-for-barbarism-from-the-sacking-of-rome-to-the-storming-of-the-capitol-11610574348
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The original vandals were a Germanic people who sacked Rome in 455 AD, after overrunning Gaul, Spain and northern Africa. The Latin name for the tribe was the “Vandali,” plural of “Vandalus.” That was simply the Roman version of the name used by tribal members themselves in an early Germanic language . . .According to Andy Merrills, a professor of ancient history at the University of Leicester, Grégoire’s coinage ended up demonizing the Germanic tribe of Vandals by making them symbols of chaos, ensuring that they would be “remembered solely for their violence and destruction.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Dean Pappas is stuck between an indoor-dining ban and a hard place. His family has been running the Glen Oak Cafe in Glen Ellyn, Ill., for 43 years. Thanks to carryout and a $57,000 federal loan, Mr. Pappas managed to avoid going out of business when pandemic lockdowns forced him to suspend indoor dining from March to June. The construction of a tent helped him regain a sizable amount of business over the summer. But business plunged in October when the state ordered restaurants in his county to stop offering indoor dining for a second time; it was banned statewide the following month. Mr. Pappas ignored the mandates and kept serving customers indoors at his 160-seat breakfast and lunch restaurant. Nonetheless, sales remain 60% lower from last year. “I’m not making anything,” said Mr. Pappas, 60 years old. “But at least I’m keeping the place going.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Thousands of protesters rushed to the … Capitol Wednesday night, forcing their way through doors, crawling through windows and jamming corridors.” That is how one newspaper described the storming of the Capitol — not the one in Washington last week, but the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., a decade ago. Back then, thousands of pro-union activists — many bused in from out of state — rampaged through the historic building in an effort to stop a vote on collective bargaining reform legislation. So, when I saw the images of a pro-Trump mob rampaging through the U.S. Capitol last week, my first thought was: What is Scott Walker thinking right now?)

— Apathy Is Destroying Our Liberty – Michael Dorstewitz
https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/liberty-parler-twitter-liberty/2021/01/13/id/1005419/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, too, we’ve been slowly losing our liberty, and too many Americans don’t seem to care. The storming of the Capitol building a week ago accelerated that process beyond anything we could imagine a year ago. Conservative columnist and talk radio host Dennis Prager observed that in 1933, the Nationalist Socialists (Nazis) blamed the burning of the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament building, on Communists. They used it to drum the Communist Party out of existence and silence the voices of its members. Similarly, after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, the mainstream press, social media and Democratic leaders silenced any claims that didn’t echo the parry line — even to the point of censoring the president of the United States.)

NARFE
— Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor New WEP/GPO Repeal Bill – Evan Dean
(DIERSEN: My Social Security is dramatically reduced because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://new.narfe.org/tell-your-representative-to-cosponsor-new-wep-gpo-repeal-bill/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 4, 2021, Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL, reintroduced the latest iteration of legislation to repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO). These provisions cut the earned Social Security benefits of federal retirees and their surviving spouses. The Social Security Fairness Act of 2021, H.R. 82, would fully repeal both provisions, which, together, affect over 2.5 million people nationwide. Visit NARFE’s Legislative Action Center to urge your Representative to cosponsor this important legislation. House rules guarantee a floor vote on any legislation that garners 290 or more cosponsors; H.R. 82 currently has 20 cosponsors. Let’s build momentum to secure a vote on this critical bill in the 117th Congress. The WEP significantly reduces the Social Security benefits of government retirees who collect both a federal annuity from their government jobs and Social Security benefits from private employment. Meanwhile, the GPO prevents government retirees who receive a federal annuity from collecting full Social Security spousal benefits. In this situation, Social Security spousal or survivor benefits are reduced by two-thirds of the federal retiree’s government annuity. Often, this leaves widows and widowers with no spousal benefits at all.)

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/533720-republicans-gauge-support-for-trump-impeachment
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Centrist Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), an Iraq and Afghanistan war vet who’s clashed with Trump, has signaled support for impeachment. “I’ll vote the right way, you know, if I’m presented with that,” Kinzinger said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” program. “I just think it’s probably not the smartest move right now, but I think that’s going to be out of my hands.” A day later, after the article of impeachment was introduced, Kinzinger’s spokesman struck a harsher tone and indicated the Illinois Republican may very well vote with Democrats. “Congressman Kinzinger is committed to doing what is right, no matter the political cost. What President Trump did last week was incite violence and encourage a mob to attack the United States Capitol. Clearly, the President violated his oath of office and is unfit to serve,” the spokesman said in a statement. Kinzinger won re-election in November by 29 percentage points.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois GOP to begin seeking state chairman applicants on Monday – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-illinois-republican-chairman-20210109-tyqzd5cfebdddetml25jurtivy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Republican Party agreed on a time frame for selecting a new state chairman Saturday, launching the process for potential candidates to apply on its website during a 10-day period beginning Monday. The goal, the party’s state central committee agreed, was to select someone by as soon as Jan. 30 to replace Tim Schneider, who announced last month he was stepping down after more than six years in the post. Schneider is leaving the post before his term ends May 23 amid a push by conservative hard-liners on the 18-member committee who sought someone more in line with their views, even though Schneider was an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump’s reelection bid. . .The state GOP leadership committee will meet on Jan. 23 to screen applicants and schedule a date to meet with finalists. A week later, the panel hopes to conclude interviews with finalists with the potential of voting that day on a new chairman. The GOP state central committee established some guidelines for candidates for the post, including a requirement to stay neutral in party primary contests and that the applicant not be a vendor or stakeholder in any campaign, including work for election technology or political consulting firms. In addition, the committee said it was seeking candidates who are not currently salaried public officials or candidates for public office that provides a salary. It also said it preferred candidates who are not registered lobbyists or government employees. The committee, however, did not issue a blanket ban on such applicants and said the individual’s circumstances should be considered by committee members. The final decision will come down to a weighted vote of the state central committee members, representing each of Illinois’ 18 congressional districts, based on 2020 primary results.)

DAILY HERALD
— What Illinois Republicans are seeking in a new chairman – Marni Pyke
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210109/what-illinois-republicans-are-seeking-in-a-new-chairman
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Saturday, Illinois Republican State Central Committee members approved a process and timeline for replacing Chairman Tim Schneider of Bartlett, who is stepping down. The hope is to name a new chairman by the Jan. 30 meeting, Grogan said. Committee members are “looking forward to getting the best qualified man or woman who comes forward at the helm,” Grogan said. “You have to come in already knowing Illinois politics and the stakeholders.” The committee needs “to go find a Solomon” who can bridge regional and ideological divides, former Republican state senator and gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale said. Typically, the top Republican in the state steers the selection of the party chairman, as former Gov. Bruce Rauner did with Schneider, but right now there’s no apparent kingmaker. Possible contenders include: Illinois National Committeeman Richard Porter, a Northfield attorney; longtime Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar; Cook County Republican Party Chairman and Illinois Republican State Central Committee member Sean Morrison of Palos Park; and Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts, who has been a fundraiser for Trump and the Republican National Committee. As of November 2020, the Democratic Party of Illinois had $2.63 million cash on hand and the Republican Party of Illinois had $286,067, according to OpenSecrets.org. Making up the shortfall will require a savvy fundraiser, one comfortable attending chicken dinners and golf outings and building rapport with wealthy Republican influencers like Uline founder Richard Uihlein and Citadel CEO Kenneth Griffin. . .He added that process for selecting a new chairman will be posted on the party’s illinois.gop website Monday. It will include an application to be completed by Jan. 21 or 22, followed by “a selection and vetting process, with the conclusion and selection at the end of the month,” he said.)
