My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Justice Michael Burke announced his candidacy for the Illinois Supreme Court’s vacant 3rd District seat this morning, accompanied by DuPage County public officials Former Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas, DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick, and DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin endorsing his candidacy. The 50+ attendees at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton included Janice Anderson, Louis Aranda, Joe Birkett, Niki Conforti, Dan Cronin, John Dabrowski, Pete DiCianni, Tim Elloitt, Daniel Guerin, Gwen Henry, Paul Hinds, Bill Hogan, Chris Kachiroubas, James McCluskey, John Millner, Kenneth Popejoy, Nicole Prater, Donald Puchalski, Dennis Reboletti, Mike Reidy, Kenton Skarin, Rick Veenstra, Ann Celine Walsh, Deanna Wilkins, and Jim Zay. The campaign website is at https://www.justicemikeburke.com/ Endorsements are at https://www.justicemikeburke.com/endorsements – Dave Diersen
http://gopillinopis.com
(FROM THE BURKE CAMPAIGN: Justice Burke released the following statement accompanying his announcement: “It is an immense honor to be able to run for the highest court in our state. I’ve been honored to serve in the criminal justice system for my whole life, as a prosecutor and as a judge at all levels of our state’s judiciary. I am humbly asking for your vote to continue my service to our state.” Justice Burke was accompanied by other public officials who have endorsed his candidacy. Quotes from leaders who stood with Justice Burke today: Former Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas: “The Supreme Court was wise to appoint Justice Burke to Illinois’s highest court, and voters will be wise to elect him in the 3rd District. Justice Burke has represented the seat I once held with honor and integrity, and his commitment to justice is total. I’m proud to endorse his candidacy for the 3rd District seat.” DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick: “Justice Burke has spent his entire career in public service, and his record on law enforcement is impeccable. He has consistently sought justice as a prosecutor and a judge, and he will continue to do so on the Supreme Court.” DuPage County State’s Attorney Bob Berlin: “When electing a Supreme Court Justice, it’s important that we have someone who is independent, honest and committed to justice. No one embodies that more than Justice Michael Burke. He will represent the 3rd District with all of those values every day as our Supreme Court Justice.)

— Justice Michael Burke announces Ill. Sup. Ct. run – Rick Koshko
https://1430wcmy.com/2021/09/27/justice-michael-burke-announces-ill-sup-ct-run/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Supreme Court Justice Michael Burke is running for election as a Republican. He’s serving from the current 2nd Judicial District. A new district map will be in effect when the next term starts, so if he’s elected Burke will be in the newly drawn 3rd District that covers LaSalle, Bureau, and Grundy counties plus DuPage County where he’s from. Burke joined the state’s highest court last year when Robert Thomas retired. He announced his candidacy today, just three days after Gov. Pritzker signed the bill into law to create the new legislative and judicial districts that’ll be in effect for the 2022 elections. It’s the first redraw of the Illinois judicial districts in nearly 60 years. According to the 72-year old Burke’s campaign web site, people endorsing him for election include St. Sen. Sue Rezin, Illinois House members Tom Demmer and David Welter, former LaSalle County Sheriff Tom Templeton, Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland, and former Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan. If he wins the 2022 elections, Burke would have a ten-year term toward the end of which he would be up for a retention vote if he wants to keep the job. The ballots in 2032 would ask voters if he should remain a Supreme Court Justice. But the 2022 ballots will ask voters to choose from Burke and other candidates if others run. Justice Michael Burke is not related to Ill. Sup. Ct. Chief Justice Anne Burke.)

My great grandfather and then my grandfather operated Crete’s only hardware store at the northeast corner of Main (Dixie Highway) and Exchange Streets until the 1950s. My parents and I lived in an apartment above that store 1948-1954. My brother continues to live in a house in Crete that my grandfather had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864.)

RIVER BENDER
— With Application Deadline Approaching, Duckworth Seeks Additional Student Applications For U.S. Military Service Academies
(DIERSEN: Were you an outstanding Illinois student? I was not. I just barely made it into the top 20% of my high school class in 1966. My ACT score  was only 24. Further, a) my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, b) I had partial red/green color blindness, and c) I could not run because I had Osgood-Schlatter disease (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease ). Further, I did not demonstrate leadership ability. 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; and collected delinquent taxes for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://www.riverbender.com/articles/details/with-application-deadline-approaching-duckworth-seeks-additional-student-applications-for-us-military-service-academies-53303.cfm
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Each year Duckworth, with the assistance of a nomination committee, selects from the applicants a group of outstanding Illinois students to receive Congressional nominations to attend West Point, the Air Force Academy, the Naval Academy, or the Merchant Marine Academy. “It takes a special kind of young person to succeed at a U.S. Military Service Academy,” said Duckworth. “The rigorous nomination process demands outstanding test scores, a high GPA, and a commitment to community service. I encourage all interested Illinois students to apply for a nomination, and I applaud their desire to serve our country.” Service academies allow young people to serve their country while receiving a full four-year scholarship. Upon acceptance of an appointment into an Academy, a student commits to five years of active duty service after graduation. U.S. citizens between the ages of 17 and 23 may receive appointments from one of the four service academies. In order to be considered, a student must get a formal nomination from their Member of Congress, Senator, or the Vice President.)

— Who are the real RINOs? The Trump critics or the Trump enablers? – Editorial
(COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. Most commonly, RINOs reject the traditional 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. Far too often, RINOs promote 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, reverse discrimination (wokeism, BLM, CRT, 1619, reparations, etc.), and/or age discrimination. I should write a book about RINOs. I would focus on RINOs who destroy a) those who they cannot manipulate/dominate, b) those who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) those who refuse to pander to them, d) those who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) those who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or f) those who refuse to give them money.)

(DIERSEN: Republican voters like me who support the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform are underrepresented in America, in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, and in Wheaton’s West district. Republican voters like me who oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, BLM, CRT, 1619, reparations, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination are underrepresented in America, in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, and in Wheaton’s West district. Republican voters like me who wanted Republicans to help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks are underrepresented in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, and in Wheaton’s West district.)

— Identity Socialism
https://www.gopusa.com/identity-socialism/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The new form of socialism is not about class differences. Instead, it is about race, gender, and transgender. Reassignment of the classic divisive Socialist roles of “oppressed working class” and “capitalist oppressor” were the foundation of the leftist movements such as “me too”, “Black Lives Matter”, and “Transgender boys competing against girls.” The new oppressed versus oppressor paradigms are people-of-color versus whites, women versus men, alternative lifestyles versus men & heterosexuals, and illegals versus citizens. Undoubtedly, to generate more “oppressed” and “oppressor” pairs only requires assignment. As an example, in my house, canines oppress felines.)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, their operatives can stress that none of the following came to my defense this year when Wheaton stopped me from raising funds from Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks: a) the aforesaid candidates, b) the leaders of MTRO, DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Illinois Republican Party (IRP); c) the Republican leaders of the Wheaton Park District (WPD), Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC), Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois; d) conservative leaders; and e) religious leaders.
