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.)

— What should the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) promote more strongly in its next platform and what should the IRP oppose more strongly in that platform? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I served on the IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee in 2008. Sadly, my requests to be appointed to serve on those committees again in 2012, 2016, and 2020 were not granted. Of course, I have asked to be appointed to serve on the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolution Committee.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party exists to defend and advance conservative principles.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly promote the following:
— Personal responsibility,
— Traditional marriage and family,
— Right to life,
— Enforcement of immigration laws,
— Discouragement of vices,
— Second Amendment rights, and
— Equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving.

Republican elected officials should promote the aforesaid.

In my opinion, the next IRP platform should more strongly oppose the promotion of the following:
— Dependency on government and charity,
— LGBTQ,
— Abortion,
— Mass/illegal immigration,
— Booze, gambling, pot, and other vices,
— Diminishment of Second Amendment rights, and
— DEI, that is, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Republican elected officials should oppose promotion of the aforesaid.

https://www.texastribune.org/2022/06/18/republican-party-texas-convention-cornyn/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meeting at their first in-person convention since 2018, Texas Republicans on Saturday acted on a raft of resolutions and proposed platform changes to move their party even further to the right. They approved measures declaring that President Joe Biden “was not legitimately elected” and rebuking Sen. John Cornyn for taking part in bipartisan gun talks. They also voted on a platform that declares homosexuality “an abnormal lifestyle choice” and calls for Texas schoolchildren “to learn about the humanity of the preborn child.” The actions capped a convention that highlighted how adamantly opposed the party’s most active and vocal members are to compromising with Democrats or moderating on social positions, even as the state has grown more diverse and Republicans’ margins in statewide elections have shrunk slightly in recent years. Votes on the platform were collected at the end of the party’s three-day convention in which party activists moved to add multiple items to the official Texas GOP platform. As the convention closed, two separate sets of ballots — one allowing delegates to choose eight of 15 legislative priorities and another allowing delegates to vote on the 275 platform planks — were gathered. Those will now need to be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, according to party spokesperson James Wesolek.)

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 hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I benefitted tremendously from slavery, and that therefore, I should pay the price of Affirmative Action and DEI big time. 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.)

According to my Democrat Firestone Store superior in February of 1971 when I was 22 years old, the following was WORTHLESS: a) what I had learned working for him for the previous 7 months and b) what I had learned earning a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. According to my Democrat Park Forest Post Office superiors in September of 1969 when I was 20 years old, the following was WORTHLESS: a) what I had learned delivering mail in Park Forest for almost 3 years and b) what I had learned taking courses at UIC 1966-1968 and at NIU in 1969. The aforesaid would not have been WORTHLESS to my aforesaid superiors if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

(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.)

Am I also correct that United has covered up this DEI disaster and many others?” she added.

— Ain’t got no diploma! Navy lowers education requirements for enlistment no longer requiring high school graduation as military struggles with recruiting amid woke policy push.

The US also entered 2024 with its smallest military in more than eight decades. – CLAUDIA AORAHA (COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government. All during the almost 30 years that I worked for those Democrats, they lowered hiring, retention, and promotion requirements so that they could hire, retain, and promote Democrats who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. That ever-increasingly rendered the following worthless: a) my job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-management-1970), b) my three job-related master’s degrees (Loyola-business-1976, DePaul-accounting-1980, and IIT-finance-1997), c) my six job-related professional certifications (accounting-1979, internal auditing-1981, fraud examination-1990, government financial management-1994, financial services auditing-1996, and forensic accounting-1997), and d) my job-related professional license (CPA-1981).)

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.)

WGN RADIO
— 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.)

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 younger Black subordinate my job and my preferred corner office, and that is exactly what they did.)

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.

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.”)

— Did NY State Republicans Nominate a Registered Democrat to Replace George Santos? – Lorri Wickenhauser (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, the more of the following that you are, the more that you are discouraged from running for any kind of government or political office: conservative, Republican, White, male. older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://thefederalistpapers.org/opinion/fact-check-ny-state-republicans-nominate-registered-democrat-replace-george-santos
(FRM THE ARTICLE: Mazi Melesa Pilip would seem to check all the boxes for a solid GOP candidate, Politico reported. She is a two-term Republican member of the Nassau County Legislature who has championed law enforcement and low property taxes. She is also a pro-Israel Orthodox Jew and has even served in the Israel Defense Forces. However, Pilip has been a registered Democrat since 2012, Politico reported, citing public records it had “uncovered.” “The Nassau County Board of Elections’ spokesperson called [Politico] on Pilip’s behalf and confirmed she is an enrolled Democrat.” Commenting on the situation, the outlet noted, “It seems like New York’s 3rd Congressional [District] is destined for drama.” Business Insider reported that the Ethiopian-born Pilip “professes to be” a Republican, despite the evidence uncovered by Politico. In securing the New York GOP nod, she “beat out a slew of other hopeful GOP nominees,” including a U.S. Air Force veteran and another IDF veteran. Pilip will be running against Democrat Tom Suozzi, a former House member who stepped down in 2022 to run for governor of New York. He lost the Democratic nomination to incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul. Politico described Pilip as a “firebrand” and added that she is “a popular figure in Great Neck, where she lives with her seven children.” The special election to fill Santos’ vacant seat will be held on Feb. 13, according to Business Insider.)
