(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?)

(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.)

KEVIN MCCARTHY
— A Statement from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy
https://republicanleader.house.gov/a-statement-from-house-republican-leader-kevin-mccarthy/
(FROM THE STATEMENT: “Let me be very clear: the violence, destruction, and chaos that unfolded at the Capitol on Wednesday was unacceptable, undemocratic, and un-American. When I spoke to President Trump on Wednesday, I told him he had a great responsibility to intervene to quell the mob and start the healing process for our country. Over the coming weeks we will work with law enforcement to bring anyone responsible for the violence to justice. Lawlessness and extremism have no place in our way of life. “Our country is not just divided. We are deeply hurt. The task ahead for the next Congress and incoming Biden Administration couldn’t be more momentous. But to deliver a better America for all, partisans of all stripes first must unite as Americans and show our country that a peaceful transition of power has occurred. Impeaching the President with just 12 days left in his term will only divide our country more. I have reached out to President-elect Biden today and plan to speak to him about how we must work together to lower the temperature and unite the country to solve America’s challenges. The coronavirus is still coursing through our communities, businesses and workers are facing unprecedented stress, and children are falling behind. Threats from adversaries such as Russia, China, and Iran are increasing. As leaders, we must call on our better angels and refocus our efforts on working directly for the American people. United we can deliver the peace, strength, and prosperity our country needs. Divided, we will fail. “Each passing day will offer us an opportunity to heal and grow stronger—a responsibility from which we cannot shrink. The United States remains exceptional and extraordinary, and in the coming weeks and months, we must work to recharge the light of our shining city on a hill.”)

— Trump briefly evades Twitter ban, tweets from @POTUS account: ‘We will not be SILENCED!’ – Dave Boyer
(DIERSEN: Twitter is a utility. What if the companies and/or governments that provide your phone, internet, television, radio, electricity, water, sanitary sewer, natural gas, etc. services cut your services off to force you to disavow Trump and to disavow Trump’s supporters?)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jan/8/donald-trump-evades-twitter-ban-tweets-potus-accou/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Twitter ban denied the president of his primary method of communicating with 88 million followers on a platform that he had relied on since the start of his presidency. Mr. Trump said in one of the deleted tweets, “As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.” The White House distributed his new tweets to the media on email after Twitter closed his “@POTUS” account. Allies such as campaign aide Boris Epshteyn also shared his tweets on their accounts. “Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” Mr. Trump said Friday night. “They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely. STAY TUNED!” He also called again for the federal government should eliminate Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields the social media giants from lawsuits over how they police content on their platforms. “Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long,” Mr. Trump said.)

CAPITOL FAX

https://capitolfax.com/2021/01/08/legislators-are-returning-to-do-their-jobs-they-should-let-reporters-do-theirs/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The House has decreed that it will not allow reporters on the floor of the 40,000 square foot BOS Center because of public health and security concerns. When I’ve objected, I’ve been asked why I wanted to be on the floor if I was going to have to remain at least six feet away from everyone else anyway. But adding a relative handful of reporters to a huge hall like that shouldn’t significantly increase viral load. House press credentials are not easily available, so the security concerns are unfounded and even insulting. And folks who are wearing masks are allowed to be closer together than six feet, as should be abundantly clear from these photos taken during the May special session. . .I’ve been tested for COVID-19 and won’t be venturing forth until the results come back and would be happy to provide testing documentation. I never go anywhere in public without wearing a mask, I don’t go to indoor restaurants and bars and nobody comes into my house without wearing a mask. I’m more than willing to take what will hopefully be a relatively moderate risk to do my job, and most other reporters I know agree. We’re essential workers who do necessary work. And the next several days could be the most momentous in Illinois government since I do not know when. Let us in.)

— Will Americans Ever Grow Wise To Alinsky?
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=100219
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, it needs to be established that while so much of the mayhem and vandalism occurring at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was perpetrated by antifa infiltrators with the intent of making real conservative patriots look bad, many of those who breached the boundaries and entered the Capitol were indeed on the right. Had that not been the case, the victim of the wanton police shooting would have been a leftist, and flags would be flown at half-mast for her from coast to coast, for at least a month. With emotions running so high, it may be risky to address the realities of the situation, and more specifically the deliberately stoked and overblown backlash from the media and the political class. Nevertheless the truth needs to be told. Unless people have a clear perspective on what actually happened in the aftermath, and how they were thoroughly emotionally manipulated by the “ruling class” and its media minions, they will never properly sort through all of the propaganda currently being dumped upon them. The left is in all of its evil “glory,” claiming indignation and fear, though its actual exuberance over its apparent “victory” can hardly be contained. On the basis of this single event, when magnified as shamelessly and hypocritically as only leftists can do, they believe all of their lies, corruption and treachery of the past four years, and particularly since Election Day, are somehow “vindicated.” Worst of all, RINO lackeys and even genuine Conservatives feel enormous pressure to genuflect at their feet and beg for absolution.)

GLENVIEW PATCH
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater asks “Do you know the name of your Republican Committee Person?” and says “Every one of us in Cook County, save two Townships, has an elected (or appointed) Republican office holder; they need to know how you feel!!”
(DIERSEN: 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump. 20,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump. What does the future hold for Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, in your county, and in Illinois? From what I see, the more of the following that is true about you, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump haters will do to get rid of you once and for all: a) shared articles that were favorable to Trump, b) cast a Republican ballot in the March 17, 2020 primary, c) voted for Trump in the November 3, 2020 election, d) displayed a Trump yard sign, e) gave money to Trump, f) serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, and/or g) are running for an office as a Republican in the April 6, 2021 election.)
https://patch.com/illinois/glenview/do-you-know-name-your-republican-committee-person
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I spoke yesterday to a lifelong and staunch Democrat, a former candidate for elected office. I shared with her my conflict. She encouraged me to stay in the party and to make a change internally. As a resident of Cook County, that might not be easy. The fealty for the Head of the Republican Party (45) is disgusting to me. I have been and will continue to be a NEVER Trump Republican, and I have supported the Lincoln Project. . .Local governance and elections are the bedrock of our Constitutional Form of Government. People often say we are a Democracy when in actuality, we are a Representative Republic. In Illinois, the most basic unit of our government is the Republican and Democratic Committeewomen and Men elected to serve our respective parties. In Suburban Cook County, these representatives are ELECTED every four years at the Primary election for Governor. The political subdivision is the Township. At the March 20, 2018, Primary election, the following Republican Township Committeepersons were elected without opposition (please remember this point). . . I would venture to say that MOST Republican Primary Voters have no idea who their elected Committeeperson currently is, and even fewer have met them. The next Cook County Committeeperson election is likely March 15, 2022. A simple question should be put to every one of these elected leaders. On January 6, 2020, were you supportive of the Presidents incendiary remarks and, by extension, him; or do you stand for the Rule of Law, our Federal and State Constitutions, and the real Republican Party ideals which were on clear display before 2015. If you don’t like the answer you get, I hope that you will consider becoming a candidate for Republican Committeeperson. Our party must decide, are we with the 45th President or not. Only then, I believe, we will be able to relay the foundational stones of the Republican Party, one that I hope to be proud of again. If we can’t make an elegant transition to better government in the next four years I will turn in my lifelong Republican credentials.)
