— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Kinzinger promotes Cheney. Who will hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters focus on destroying first? From what I see, first, they will focus on destroying Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members who do not hate Trump. They will focus on those IRP SCC members who have the heaviest weighted vote. Then, second, the officers of Republican county party organizations who do not hate Trump. They will focus on officers in counties that have the most Republican voters. Then, third, the officers of Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump. The will focus on officers in townships/wards that have the most Republican voters. Then, fourth, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains who do not hate Trump. They will focus on Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in precincts that have the most Republican voters. But beyond the aforesaid, of course, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters will focus on destroying those Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, reporters, journalists, etc. who have the greatest impact in Illinois. Of course, I will report everything that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters do a) to destroy me, b) to destroy my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters , and c) to destroy those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.

(DIERSEN: In Illinois, what if elected Republican township, ward, and precinct committeemen, instead of Republican primary voters, chose the party’s candidates?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20210508/news/305089915/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tens of thousands of Virginia Republicans, sometimes waiting in long lines of cars, cast ballots Saturday to choose nominees for governor and other statewide offices at a drive-thru nominating convention. The Republican Party held what it’s calling an ‘unassembled convention’ on Saturday to select its nominees in this year’s race for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Republicans haven’t won a statewide race in Virginia since 2009. Because pandemic restrictions ban mass gatherings, delegates are casting ballots at nearly 40 polling sites across the state. More than 53,000 Virginians successfully pre-registered as delegates. GOP officials rejected applications from roughly 700 would-be delegates. Virginia is the only state with an open-seat gubernatorial contest this year, and the race will be closely watched as an early indicator of party strength heading into the 2022 congressional elections.)

INDEPENDENT
— White House answered fake reporter’s questions for weeks before she was revealed as a “Lego” video gamer. DC reporters frequently asked Jen Psaki questions on behalf of Kacey Montagu, who it turns out was not a real person – Nathan Place
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/white-house-lego-fake-reporter-b1829659.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a few recent White House press briefings, reporters have posed questions to Press Secretary Jen Psaki on behalf of a reporter named Kacey Montagu, who said she couldn’t be there due to Covid-19 precautions. In fact, the reason she couldn’t attend is much simpler: Ms Montagu doesn’t exist. According to a new report from Politico, Kacey Montagu is a pseudonym, most likely used by a gamer on the online platform ROBLOX. Within the platform, where players call themselves “Legos”, the so-called Ms Montagu has served as secretary of state in a government simulation called nUSA. But to DC reporters and to the White House itself, she’s become a real-life journalist. “I really wasn’t surprised she fooled these people,” another nUSA player, “pres. arnie vinick,” told Politico. “She’s been bragging about it for a while.” Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, it’s become common for White House reporters to ask questions on behalf of other journalists. That’s because to enable social distancing, the White House has drastically reduced the number of people allowed in the briefing room – from 49 to 14. To get their questions in, the reporters left out submit their questions digitally or through a courteous pool reporter. And into that loophole stepped Kacey Montagu. The mysterious gamer frequently emailed pool reporters with questions – usually after their first pool report of the day came out, so she knew who they were. In case anyone looked her up before relaying her questions, she set up fake Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, naming herself chief political correspondent for White House News or White House Schedule, neither of which exists.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Void FOID? State’s top court asked to decide if it’s time to shoot down Firearm Owner Identification cards. The Illinois attorney general’s appeal of a downstate judge’s ruling sets up a battle over whether the state can require residents to hold an ID card in order to own a firearm. First enacted in 1968, the state’s Firearm Owner Identification Act does just that. But a southern Illinois judge said that makes residents’ Second Amendment rights a “façade.” – Andrew Sullender

DAILY HERALD
— Milton Township moving to form voter-approved mental health board
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210502/milton-township-moving-to-form-voter-approved-mental-health-board
(FROM THE ARTICLE: John Monino — Milton’s first new township supervisor in 20 years — will appoint the seven members to the mental health board. Monino will be sworn in on May 14. Under state law, the township has 60 days from his swearing-in to seat the 708 board. Monino said he hopes to make the first mental health board appointments at a township trustee meeting in June. The panel could include doctors, parents, and representatives of schools or social service agencies. “We will do everything in the township to support and grow that and outreach,” Monino said. Township trustees also will get the final say on the amount residents would pay in additional taxes each year. But the request that was approved by voters caps the tax levy for the mental health board at 0.15% of the assessed value of taxable property. When asked about the tax increase, Monino said the levy is “not going to be touching at that top end” of the cap. He’s hoping to have the levy adopted in October or early November. “We’re going to be researching and looking at all aspects so everybody is comfortable,” Monino said.)

ILLINOIS CPA SOCIETY
— COURSE: The IRS Collection Process
(DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980, I could have taught this course. I had worked for IRS’s Collection Division for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year. I filed many tax liens and tax levies.  I had worked as an IRS Special Procedures Staff Advisor during my last 3 1/2 years with IRS. Special Procedures Staff Advisors confer with IRS Attorneys, Revenue Officers, Revenue Agents and Special Agents as well as taxpayers and their representatives to resolve complex tax issues and determine a course of action designed to protect the Government’s interests and expedite payment of taxes due. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. My Democrat GAO superiors wasted my knowledge of IRS. In 1986, the GAO manager who had hired me finally succeeded in getting me assigned to audits of IRS and promoting me to GS-13. But my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing him to retire in 1987, and starting in 1989, they succeeded in keeping me off audits of IRS for the rest of GAO career. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, they succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.”)

— The U.S. Postal Service desperately needs a few good men and women. Maybe you? The post office’s ongoing delivery problems could open a window of opportunity for people now that it’s looking to hire. Here’s what you need to know. – Mary Mitchell
(DIERSEN: The Post Office hired me in 1966 when I was 18 years old because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2021/4/30/22412910/postal-service-mail-jobs
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The United States Postal Service says it’s one of the “leading employers of minorities and women. Minorities comprise 39% and women 40% of the workforce, 21% of employees are African-American; 8% are Hispanic; 8% are Asian-American/Pacific Islander, and 0.67% are American Indian or Alaska Native.” . . . So here is where the community could make a difference — if you’ve got the right stuff. The Postal Service is hiring. “This is an opportunity for those who want to work for the post office because they are hiring up to 500 city letter carriers, and these are jobs that can change lives,” Julion says. The union representative tells potential employees these jobs could help them become homeowners and be able to afford that new automobile. “These are good union jobs,” he says. Prospective mail carriers will have to pass drug tests and background checks and have a clean driving record for at least two years. “The post office has been posting jobs like mad,” Julion says. “With people retiring, there is going to be a constant flow of jobs.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Kinzinger: The tyranny of the reasonable – David Hale
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/05/the_tyranny_of_the_reasonable.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The tyranny of the reasonable is: if you’re not “reasonable,” you don’t get a voice, and you don’t count. This is perfectly expressed in the 16th District Republican congressman, Adam Kinzinger. The dashing young Kinzinger with steely eyes and square jaw and canned, even, toned verbal delivery comes across as erudite, serious, and reasonable — a political figure who just “wants what’s best for everybody.” But nothing is farther from the truth. His cooperation with the left has for the past decade chipped away at American freedom through his decisions on Capitol Hill and eroded our liberties a bite at a time. Kinzinger cooperates and coordinates with members of the Democrat Party who have a deep allegiance to extremist ideas of open borders, redistribution of labor and wealth in the form of money from American’s paychecks, division through racial unrest and strife, and transgender tyranny in our schools and even in school bathrooms. Despite this extensive cooperation with the party of “Marx in America,” he is considered a reasonable, thoughtful political figure. So much easier to gulp down lies when told to us through a smile with even, serious tones. People like Kinzinger delivering their message do not seem like radicals or extremists. They seem reasonable. Kinzinger has learned this tactic and executed this persona with perfection, yet his allegiances are anything but reasonable. His allegiances are radical and extreme and part of what is transforming America into a debt-laden, morally bankrupt, tyrannical dictatorship that is closing the noose of tyranny around our freedoms and liberties. People who consider themselves reasonable consider Kinzinger the same, yet they don’t look deeper than Kinzinger’s surface persona. Beneath this reasonable persona is a man who has created and led our nation into a worse condition than it has ever been — deeper in debt, morally bankrupt, crime-ridden, with joblessness, rioting, racial division, and a whole host of social and economic problems.)

(DIERSEN: How will Democrat gerrymandering impact you, your neighborhood, your precinct, your municipal district, your municipality, your township, your county district, your county, Illinois, and America?)
https://www.bnd.com/news/politics-government/article251004259.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: WHAT DOES REDISTRICTING MEAN FOR BLACK AND BROWN COMMUNITIES? Drawing political boundaries for racial reasons isn’t allowed under federal law. Drawing them for political purposes is, though the two often end up being the same, said Kevin Anderson, a professor at Eastern Illinois University who specializes in African-American politics. “You can’t draw a district and stuff all the white people in one area,” Anderson said, “but you can gerrymander for political reasons. You can draw districts in a weird shape to put as many Republicans in a district, as many Democrats in a district.” As a result, racial groups can still get bunched together into super-majority districts, which could be a good thing because they’d have a representative who advocates for their specific issues. But it can end up having the opposite effect because lumping racial groups together creates extremes. There may be one elected official who strongly supports gun control and criminal justice reform, and another nearby who opposes them. Neither have to answer to a diverse electorate either in terms or race or ideology, and their agendas might cancel each other out. As southwestern Illinois turns more conservative, bipartisan partnerships could become more scarce. “If you concentrate minority voters in one or two districts, yeah, they get to send their person to Springfield, but you have almost no influence in the areas around you,” Anderson said. “It becomes very difficult to build coalitions.”)

https://www.illinoistimes.com/springfield/free-capitol-news-illinois/Content?oid=13504306
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Capitol News Illinois has requested floor credentials granted to journalists from the Associated Press, the State Journal-Register and myriad other media outlets. Lawmakers have refused. . .Legislative leaders have denied access on grounds that Capitol News Illinois is affiliated with an interest group, the Illinois Press Association, which employs lobbyists. Among other things, the IPA lobbies to keep laws requiring that legal notices be printed in newspapers. It’s OK for lawmakers to moonlight as lobbyists, but reporters aren’t supposed to be tools of outfits with business before the legislature. Legislative leaders have drawn parallels between Capitol News Illinois and a defunct news arm of the Illinois Policy Institute, a conservative think tank. Lawmakers six years ago won a court fight to deny credentials for the institute’s alleged news operation. It’s a matter of consistency, Steve Brown, then spokesman for former House Speaker Michael Madigan, wrote in a 2019 letter denying credentials to Capitol News Illinois. . .”(I)t is my opinion that you and the others with Capitol News Illinois are not representatives of the press but representatives of an advocacy organization,” Brown wrote. Capitol News Illinois is a creature of the Illinois Press Foundation, a nonprofit affiliate of the Illinois Press Association. The policy institute had a similar relationship with its news arm. That’s where similarities end. For one thing, we don’t know who funds the policy institute, which doesn’t disclose donor names. We know that the Robert R. McCormick Foundation carries Capitol News Illinois, which also conducts fundraising drives familiar to any NPR fan.)

— The True Cost of Closing the Racial Wealth Gap – William Darity Jr.
(DIERSEN: How much reparations do the Democrats want you to pay?)
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/30/business/racial-wealth-gap.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Elimination of the wealth gap between Black and white Americans is a stated goal of President Biden and the Democratic Party. The gulf is enormous any way you look at it. But depending on the measure you use, the chasm ranges from $54,700 a person to $280,300 a person. I believe the higher figure is the most appropriate one. That amounts to a total of $11.2 trillion — a figure that implies that incremental measures will not be sufficient to address the enormous racial wealth disparity. Those numbers are derived from data compiled in the Federal Reserve’s 2019 Survey of Consumer Finances. The survey shows that the gap in wealth between Black and white Americans at the median — the middle household in each community — was $164,100. The median Black household was worth only $24,100; the median white household, $188,200. But if we compare Black and white wealth at the mean — for the average household in each community — the difference was $840,000, a far larger sum. The average figure for Black households was $142,500; for white households, $983,400, close to $1 million.)

(DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have no problem with the 1619 Project. They pander to minorities by painting me as being a racist, and even worse things. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. Better yet, I should sue them for slander.)

— ‘Make Yourself More Employable In One Day’ – Allison Pohle
(DIERSEN: What harmed your job search? I graduated from NIU in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management. Potential employers viewed me as being draft bait. I had been classified as 1-A and my draft number was 151. They did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be approved. Further, potential employers were under tremendous pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Further, I had been a government employee 1966-1969. I took the only job offer that I received; to be the Retail Sales Manager in the Chicago Heights Firestone Store. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I served as the store’s salesman. Firestone’s district office hired me; the store’s manager would never have hired me. He disapproved of my avoiding the draft, my being a college graduate, my being Missouri Synod Lutheran, and my being 100% German American. He refused to let me start until I passed a 2-week probationary period working in Firestone’s Gary store. He rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice in early 1971. I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. The aforesaid directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

— ‘We’re not sworn enemies’: Liz Cheney defends herself for fist-bumping Biden. No 3 ranking Republican previously came under sustained attack from her own party for criticizing Donald Trump – Ed Pilkington
(DIERSEN: A house divided against itself cannot stand. The Republican Party lets Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs lead the party. The aforesaid a) focus on driving Republicans out of the Republican Party and b) focus on destroying the Republican Party. I should write a book about the success that the aforesaid destroyers have had since 2000 in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton. I would focus on the aforesaid destroyers 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.)
