— CPS selective enrollment schools to accept fewer affluent students under proposed change – Sarah Karp
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized, denigrated, and condemned my parents as being filthy rich. They have always stressed that my father made enough money that my mother could stay home and raise my brother and me and that they sent my brother and me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest to stay with the Missouri Synod. My outstanding parents never attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. My father fought type 1 diabetes, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. If my parents were filthy rich, why did I take jobs that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to take? 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; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

— Search for Chicago’s next inspector general is down to two – Fran Spielman
(COMMENT: I served on the Executive Committee (EC) of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996. Almost all the other EC members were employees of federal inspector general (IG) offices. All the audits of all the federal agencies that I worked on for GAO 1980-1997 required coordination with those agency’s IG offices. I worked on audits of federal financial institution regulators for almost 9 years, on audits of IRS for 3 years, and on audits of many other federal agencies, including Railroad Retirement Board, Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Immigration and Naturalization Service, General Service Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Labor, Federal Aviation Administration, Veteran Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Health and Human Services, for almost 6 years. I worked on an audit of EPA IG compliance with professional standards. SEE: https://www.gao.gov/products/afmd-86-43 )

— IRS Readies Hiring Binge in Bid to Clear Tax-Return Backlog. Tax agency plans to hire 5,000 workers quickly and 5,000 more by September 2023. – Richard Rubin
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have wasted my knowledge of IRS the most. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $88,229-$99,994/year. GAO audits IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 and worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $104,915-$136,387/year. The Democrats who ran GAO kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of those almost 18 years. In my book, I would focus on my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors and on my Republican U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, their staff members, and their political consultants.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Republicans starved the Internal Revenue Service of funding for far too long, and the taxpayer has paid the price,” said Rep. Richard Neal (D., Mass.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “But in this bill, Democrats deliver the largest funding increase to the agency in decades.” Republicans have criticized the IRS for being too slow to use pandemic-era funding it received. “The IRS is finally recognizing that this historic backlog is not due to a lack of funding, but due to its neglect in using the tools it has,” Rep. Kevin Brady (R., Texas), the top Republican on the Ways and Means Committee, said last week.)

— As an election observer in 2014, I saw Ukrainians’ commitment to sovereignty – PETER ROSKAM
(COMMENT: Roskam was my state representative 1993-1999, state senator 2000-2007, and congressman 2007-2019. Roskam’s endorsement helped me win a contested precinct committeeman race in 2000. I have done a lot to help elect him and to help reelect him. I gathered signatures in my precinct on his nominating petitions. I got campaign sign locations for him in my precinct, including for second-floor 4X4 signs at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road. I delivered lots of his campaign literature in my precinct. I invited him to speak at TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition events. Duckworth had her thugs throw me out her rally with Michael J. Fox in the Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton in 2006. I raised $2,000 for an elephant to walk behind him in Wheaton’s 2007 Independence Day parade. However, sadly, I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have blamed me the most and have blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for Roskam’s problems. I have been the Illinois reporter for www.gopusa.com since 2000. My critics/opponents did not want me to attend Henry Hyde’s press conference in 2005 ( https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2005-08-05-0508050305-story.html ) when he endorsed Roskam. But when I attended anyway, they warned me to not ask any questions. Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being just like Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News Since 2005, they have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents.)

— Concordia University Wisconsin, a university of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has immediately suspended and banned from its campus Reverend Dr. Gregory Schulz, a philosophy professor, for writing an article criticizing the school’s descent into “Woke-ness.” – Federalist
(COMMENT: The Missouri Synod emerged from several communities of German Lutheran immigrants during the 1830s and 1840s. It was organized in 1847 at a meeting in Chicago. My ancestors worked in a brick factory in Chicago at that time. I was baptized as a Missouri Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, raised as a MSL, and confirmed as a MSL in 1962. My outstanding parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. I should write a book about those who have/had lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned MSLs the most as being “too conservative.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen was among the first to file at the county clerk’s office Monday as he turned in paperwork to run for county treasurer. Democrat Jeffrey Pripusich also filed for treasurer. Lauzen, who served as county board chairman for eight years, said he wanted to be a “spending watchdog” for the county’s money. He pointed to several county expenditures he considered wasteful, including employing a lobbyist and the recent hiring of a public information officer. “If somebody is not satisfied with what’s going on in any level of government, rather than complain about it, do something about it,” said Lauzen, an accountant who also served in the Illinois Senate for 20 years.)

NAPERVILLE NEW 17
— DuPage County Divided Over Drawing of County Election Precinct Maps
(COMMENT: Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs redraw precincts to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me. For the second time now, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs have drawn me in to the same DuPage County Milton Precinct 9 in Wheaton with Jeanne Ives.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/top-stories/dupage-county-divided-over-drawing-of-county-election-precinct-maps/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County voters could find they are grouped into fewer, larger precincts come the next election. Why Now? A new piece of legislation signed into law in November 2021 and discussed Tuesday at the county finance committee meeting reduces the number of DuPage County election precincts from 930 to 607. The current draft of the redrawn maps leaves fewer committeemen to serve as the voice of the voters, thereby impacting whether a party may be elected. What’s At Issue? Board member Amy Chavez said some precinct committee members and township officials have reached out to her, asking for changes to the proposed election precinct maps. “I think there is a lot of concern over these new lines,” Chavez said. Board member Sam Tornatore said something has to give. “It’s essentially a political attempt to change boundaries within precincts,” Tornatore said. The new state legislation comes on the heels of the county board agreeing on a new DuPage County redistricting map in a bipartisan effort in October 2021. Deputy County Clerk Adam Johnson said he stands by the election precinct maps put together by county clerk’s office staff. “It’s unavoidable that there’s going to be some people who are not happy with the way the maps turn out,” Johnson said. “Certainly, we’re open to constructive criticism on how that process could have been better massaged.” Board member Jim Zay said he would not support the precinct maps as proposed given the lack of time allotted for input. “We have a job to do,” Zay said. “This is not putting us in the best position to do our job.” Johnson tried to address concerns about the county clerk’s office getting input on the precinct maps. “While there hasn’t been a lot of time for as many outside parties to review the maps, from the feedback I have received, I haven’t heard much in the way of actual substantive complaints of how the maps were drawn in terms of meeting the state legislature’s requirements,” Johnson said. Tornatore said he doesn’t want to place blame on the county clerk’s office, but he believes taxpayer money may have been wasted. “I don’t know that the election division contemplated this legislation coming from Springfield,” Tornatore said. “I know it’s been kind of on the back burner. … Perhaps we should have taken it into consideration before we ordered as many printers as we did. But I’m going to presume that we have a printer for every precinct that if we now have 300-plus fewer precincts, we either should get a rebate for the money we spent or we’re going to have a lot of printers being stored that aren’t being used.” The county board authorized the purchase of new voting equipment valued at roughly $7.2 million in October 2021. That contract as awarded includes funding to pay for printers, among other things. The county has been in the process of matching polling places with election precincts to determine which ones will be combined into a single location. Officials anticipate a reduction in the number of polling places, but they believe the amount of new printers purchased will remain appropriate for the layout of available voting locations. Moving Forward. County board members acknowledge they don’t have a lot of time to spare. The election precinct maps need to be adopted no later than Friday. A special county board meeting on this topic is scheduled for Friday at 8 a.m.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— SCOOP: Republican Steve Kim is throwing his hat in the ring to challenge Democratic Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, nearly rounding out a Republican slate for the June 28 primary. Kim is a familiar name on the political scene, having challenged Democratic AG Lisa Madigan when she ran for reelection in 2010. Kim was also the running mate to Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Rutherford in the 2014 primary contest that ultimately went to Bruce Rauner. A source close to Kim’s campaign said he would be part of a slate that includes state Rep. Tom Demmer for treasurer, former U.S. Attorney John Milhiser for secretary of state, and McHenry County Auditor Shannon Teresi for auditor, who announced yesterday. Don’t be surprised if Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin leads the slate as the gubernatorial candidate. These candidates aren’t the only Republicans running for statewide offices, but by teaming up they hope to have an advantage securing a statewide seat (or seats) that are now controlled by Democrats. Abby Witt, executive director of the Democratic Party of Illinois, calls the slate a “Rauner Reboot” that’s being run by Ken Griffin. Actually, Griffin has so far kept out of the statewide races — though he’s acknowledged wanting to defeat Gov. JB Pritzker. For his part, Kim said the AG job is “critical to repairing the state’s reputation as a haven for crime and public corruption.” And like Teresi did yesterday, he invoked Michael Madigan, the former House speaker, in his remarks, saying, “Under JB Pritzker and Mike Madigan, Springfield remains a cesspool run for the benefit of the politicians and insiders and not the people of Illinois.” Kim, born in South Korea, is an attorney with an expertise in international issues. He was an adviser to former Gov. Jim Edgar on trade and Asian affairs, a trustee in Northfield Township, and an international affairs director for the State Chamber of Commerce. He also serves as a member of the Rules Committee of the Illinois Supreme Court. In the private sector, Kim worked on internal and external affairs with Ameritech, now AT&T, while going to law school at night. After earning his law degree, Kim was VP of government and public affairs at Time Warner. He’s since practiced law at a boutique firm that advises small- and medium-size companies. . .Republican Cook County Commissioner Peter Silvestri won’t seek reelection: He was first elected in 1994. “I’m thinking that there’s other things I want to do, like maybe teach or practice more law … and just have more time with my friends and family,” Silvestri said in a phone interview with the Tribune’s Alice Yin. “I hope that my legacy is that I tried to represent the people of our area to the best of my ability, understanding the social and financial limitations that government has.” . . .Pete DiCianni has been unanimously endorsed by the Addison Township Republican Organization for DuPage County Board chairman. Di Cianni currently serves as the commissioner of the 2nd District. – Shia Kapos

— AUGUST 4, 1997 FLASHBACK: DEPRESSION-ERA PROJECT HAUNTS CONSOLIDATION EFFORT – Bob Merrifield
(COMMENT: When our mother died in 2016, my brother and I inherited her 40-by-100 foot lot near the Lincolnshire Country Club in Crete.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1997-08-04-9708040150-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Walt Williams, president of the Lincolnshire Country Club, sees the subdivision that never was as a historical relic. “At the time, a four-golf-course complex was planned,” Williams said. “Three of the four got built. Two are still in existence. “They were trying to make it into a resort community. I believe the Depression ended all that.” Esther Diersen of Crete, who owns one of the 40-foot lots, said she believes most owners have held on to the land for sentimental reasons or because it may eventually increase in value. Her lot was bought in the 1920s by an aunt of her late husband. “When Lincolnshire Country Club first started, everyone bought a small lot like that. For some reason I kept thinking it might be something the kids could realize something from. That’s the only reason I still have it.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220105/it-has-no-place-how-a-mundelein-area-woman-is-deleting-a-painful-relic-of-race-and-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For 40 years beginning in the late 1920s, it was not uncommon for restrictive covenant clauses to prohibit the sale or lease of property to certain racial or ethnic groups. That practice became illegal and unenforceable with the passage of the federal Housing Rights Act in 1968. But the offensive language has remained. Many property owners are unaware of such references in covenants associated with their property. And those who are have found it difficult to have them deleted.)

— 84% of Voters: Public Schools Should Teach Truth About Slavery – Scott Rasmussen
(COMMENT: According to this article, “42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy.” What percent of your school board members agree that schools should teach that “America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy?” What are the following doing to fight CRT, 1619, reparations, BLM, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination: a) Republican members of your school board, b) the leaders your Republican township/ward/county party organizations, c) your representative on the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee, d) the IRP leaders, e) Republican leaders of your chamber of commerce, park district, municipality, township, and county, f) your Republican state representative and state senator, g) etc.?)
https://www.newsmax.com/scottrasmussen/public-schools-slavery-founding/2022/01/06/id/1051337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters believe public schools should teach the truth about slavery. At the same time, a Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 81% believe public schools should teach that America was founded on the ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. Combining the results shows that 72% of voters believe both should be taught. Another question found that 42% believe the schools should teach that America was founded on racism, slavery, and white supremacy. Forty-four percent (44%) disagree. Overall, 40% believe students should be taught that America was founded on noble ideals, but not that the nation was founded on racism. Thirty percent (30%) believe both should be taught. Eleven percent (11%) say that the noble ideals should be taught and are not sure about racism. Nine percent (9%) believe schools should teach that the nation was founded on racism but not that it was founded upon noble ideals. Finally, 64% believe that schools should teach that America is a force for good in the world. Fifteen percent (15%) disagree and 21% are not sure. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of those who support Trump-like policies believe that students should be taught that America is a force for good. So do 73% of traditional Democrats and 70% of traditional Republicans. However, among those who support policies like those of Senator Bernie Sanders, just 42% think students should learn that America is a force for good. Thirty percent (30%) of Sanders’ supporters say that positive message should not be taught while 28% are not sure. Given a choice between four presidential candidates with equal skills and temperament, 31% would prefer a Republican who supported policies like those of President Trump. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% would prefer a Democrat who supported policies similar to Senator Bernie Sanders, 19% favor a more traditional Democrat, and 17% a more traditional Republican.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Author and historian Thomas Sowell, who has written frequently on slavery, has pointed out that the United States was actually the first country in world history to ban the practice. “Slavery was just not an issue, not even among intellectuals, much less among political leaders, until the 18th century – and then it was an issue only in Western civilization,” Sowell wrote. “Among those who turned against slavery in the 18th century were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and other American leaders,” Sowell said. “You could research all of the 18th century Africa or Asia or the Middle East without finding any comparable rejection of slavery there. But who is singled out for scathing criticism today? American leaders of the 18th century.”)

ALTON TELEGRAPH
— County board trims 34 precincts. State-required change will save election costs. – Scott Cousins
(COMMENT: I only learned of precinct consolidation in Illinois this morning. I erroneously relied on the following to advise me of such things: the DuPage County Election Division (DCED), my representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization. I understand that at its January 11, 2022 meeting, the DuPage County Board will vote to consolidate DuPage County’s 930 precincts into just 607, a loss of 323 precincts. That includes consolidating Milton Township’s 130 precincts into just 83, a loss of 47 precincts. I have asked DCED to email me the new map for Milton Township and the map for the new precinct that I am in. I should write a book about the 2015 Gerrymandering of my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton.)
https://www.thetelegraph.com/news/article/Board-reduces-precincts-in-response-to-new-state-16729105.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Madison County Board has approved a new precinct map that reduces the number of precincts to 191 from the current 225. The board took the action after new state laws were signed in mid-November by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. The changes were approved at a special Madison County Board meeting Thursday night. The new map was approved unanimously 21-0, with seven members absent, two participating remotely and one open seat. The changes are the last to be completed as part of the decennial census. In November the board approved a new Madison County Board district map cutting the board size by three to 26 members. “Reducing the total number of election precincts by consolidating 225 into 191 will save taxpayers 15 percent on every election held in Madison County,” said Madison County Board Member Chris Guy, R-Maryville, who chairs the Government Relations Committee. “Not only will a reduction result in cost-savings to the taxpayers, a reduction will also bring more efficiency and integrity to the election process.” The new law requires precincts to be “as near as may be practicable, 1,200 registered voters,” according to information provided by Guy. Prior to that the number was 500 registered voters per precinct. The new state law also requires precinct maps to be approved by Jan. 14, the day after candidates are allowed to begin collecting signatures to get on the 2022 ballot. The full county board took the precinct action after a special meeting by the Government Relations Committee, which approved the new precinct maps.)
