POLITICO
— One year after Jan. 6, Trumpism isn’t gone. It’s ‘almost a religion.’ The riot at the Capitol briefly looked like it had broken Trump’s hold on the GOP. Instead, he has reaffirmed his dominion over the party. – DAVID SIDERS
(COMMENT: I should write a book about the biggest hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who stopped me this year from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks. I would focus on a) past and present leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, b) conservative and religious leaders, c) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers, and d) those who I have sued. I would focus on those who destroy those like me who they cannot manipulate or dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or who refuse to give them money. I would focus on those who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who hint/imply/argue/shout that they disapprove of those who share my demographics.)

CNN
— They grew up surrounded by racism. But early on they chose a different path – John Blake
(COMMENT: Should I write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned my hometown of Crete the most? I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, and DuPage County. Crete was predominately German American and Lutheran when I lived there 1948-1972. My brother continues to live in a house in downtown Crete that I lived in 1954-1972 that my grandfather on my father’s side had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864 after he sold a farm that he had homesteaded in southeast Crete in 1854. 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.)

FORBES
— Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Retirement Pay Will Exceed $350,000 Per Year – The Largest In U.S. Federal Government History – Adam Andrzejewski
(COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GS-13 Step 10 GAO salary was $132,845/year in today’s dollars. My Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,864/year today a) because my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20 years old, b) because my Democrat IRS superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-12, c) because my Democrat GAO superiors refused to promote me beyond GS-13, and d) because my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and had worked for the federal government for almost 30 years and had almost a year of unused sick leave. Generally, you reach the 80% limitation when you have worked for the federal government for 42 years not including accumulated sick leave; that would have been 2010 for me. 80% of GS-13 Step 10 salary is $106,276/year. 80% of GS-14 Step 10 salary is $125,583/year. 80% of GS-15 Step 10 salary and Senior Executive Service salary is $138,000/year.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adamandrzejewski/2021/12/28/dr-anthony-faucis-retirement-pay-will-exceed-350000-per-year–the-largest-in-us-federal-government-history/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee. For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out earned the president, four star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019. . .Federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn “80 percent of [their] high-3 average salary, plus credit for [their] sick leave,” according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. . .So, at this point, we can use only the last three published years of his salary — 2018: $399,625; 2019: $417,608; and 2020: $434,312 — to calculate his potential retirement earnings. Dr. Fauci earned a total of $1.252 million from 2018-2020 in salary as a federal employee. If he’d left federal service at the end of FY2020, figuring 80% of his highest three-year average, would mean a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases (($1,251,545/3) x 80% = $333,745). However, Fauci’s unpublished FY2021 and FY2022 salaries are likely commensurate, if not higher than his 2020 salary. Therefore, his retirement pay would be closer to $347,500 a year. (($1,302,936/3) x 80%).

CENTER FOR PUBLIC INTEGRITY
— MAY 19, 2014 FLASHBACK: A wealth of advice. Nearly $2 billion flowed through consultants in 2003-2004 federal elections. – Sandy Bergo
(COMMENT: I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have acted like they took advice from my critics/opponents a) to not read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to blame me and my newsletters for all their problems, for all your problems, for all my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Previously, my critics/opponents blamed what I did raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that they could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019 and my serving as a) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, b) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member 2003-2011, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010, d) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and e) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2000-2004.)
https://publicintegrity.org/politics/elections/campaign-consultants/a-wealth-of-advice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the 2004 federal races, more than $1.85 billion flowed through a professional corps of consultants whose influence plays an important, though largely unexamined, role in the unrelenting escalation of campaign spending, a groundbreaking Center for Public Integrity study has found. The money going to these consultants amounted to more than half of the total spending by presidential candidates, national party committees, general election candidates for Congress, and so-called “527”s — independent political groups. The high cost of running for office raises concerns because fundraising demands can ultimately bind elected officials to special interest donors and lobbyists who help with fundraising — deepening the widely held perception that politicians serve the interests of large contributors over those of constituents. Potential candidates who can’t meet the fundraising demands are shut out.)

https://www.ntd.com/virginia-parents-sue-school-district-over-crt-curriculum_718969.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Parents in Virginia have sued Albemarle County School Board over so-called “anti-racist” curriculum materials that they allege are indoctrinating their children with the tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT) that are actually racist at their core. The plaintiffs, nine parents and their children, filed the complaint (pdf) in Albemarle County Circuit Court on Dec. 22 with the help of attorneys from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a legal nonprofit. ADF said in a statement that the parents had filed suit against the school board for “enacting discriminatory policies and indoctrinating students in radical ideology,” violating students’ civil rights by treating them differently based on race. “Our clients believe that every person is made in the image of God, deserves respect, and therefore, should not be punished or rewarded for something over which they have no control,” ADF Senior Counsel Kate Anderson said in a statement. “Public schools have no right to demean students because of their race, ethnicity, or religion.”)

Construction defects like leaks, mold, sinking or cracking can be detrimental to your property and to your physical health. Perhaps these errors were easy to overlook on the day of inspection, but as time has passed you realize that the mistakes are more significant than you thought. Your biggest investment is also losing value. What are Home Construction Defects? Construction defects come in various forms and produce a variety of problems for homeowners. Every state has different laws and statutes of limitation regarding construction policy.)

HR MORNING
— Hit with a bias claim? Here’s what you need to beat it. – Tom D’Agostino
(COMMENT: I should write a book about pretext. Because it is illegal to discriminate because of race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, and/or political affiliation if you are a government employee, etc., those who discriminate use pretexts. Most commonly, discriminators foist negative stereotypes of your demographics upon you. If you are White, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Whites and you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, racist, etc. If you are male, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against women and you are a sexist. If you are older, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against younger people. If you are heterosexual, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against LGBTQers and you are a bigot. If you are Protestant, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Protestants. If you are German American, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-German Americans. If you are Republican, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Republicans. I would focus on pretexural discriminators who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. According to Pluralism ( https://pluralism.org/stereotypes-and-prejudice ), Protestants are anti-Catholic and anti-Semite. According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypes_of_Germans ), negative German stereotypes include being Nazis and not having a sense of humor. According to Babbel ( https://www.babbel.com/en/magazine/false-german-stereotypes ), negative German stereotypes include being unfriendly and loving cars.)
https://www.hrmorning.com/news/hostile-environment-2/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s common sense, really: Employers accused of taking action against an employee for an illegal reason must be prepared to say what the real reason was – and that it was perfectly legitimate. In a typical case, articulating a nondiscriminatory reason volleys the burden to the plaintiff to show that the proffered reason is not real but instead is just a pretext for unlawful bias. And if the plaintiff can’t show pretext, the case usually ends.)

My ancestors on my father’s side immigrated in 1844, worked in a brick factory in Chicago 1844-1854, and homesteaded a farm in southeast Crete Township in 1854. My ancestors on my mother’s side immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s, were sharecroppers on land in Grant Park along the Indiana border, and subsequently bought that land.)

(COMMENT: I should write a book about scapegoaters.

I would focus on the aforesaid who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrongdoing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.

EPOCH TIMES
— ‘Going Woke’ Trend’s Slippery Slope: Ontario Teachers’ Union Now Opting for Votes Based on Race – Michael Zwaagstra
(COMMENT: How soon, if not already, will the organizations that you are a member of and the governments that you are under officially give members of protected groups a heavier weighted vote?  Members of protected groups include those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, veteran, disabled, moderate, liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, non-married, non-rich, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, those who are in America illegally, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, criminals, boozers, gamblers, stoners, etc.)
https://www.theepochtimes.com/going-woke-trends-slippery-slope-ontario-teachers-union-now-opting-for-votes-based-on-race_4124062.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As a case in point, District 20 of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) recently adopted a rule that gives more voting powers to non-white teachers than to white teachers. In a series of slides explaining the change to “weighted voting,” union leadership claimed that the votes of non-white teachers must equal at least 50 percent of the total votes cast. The slides give a hypothetical example where teachers are voting on whether or not to recognize Diwali as an official holiday. This hypothetical scenario posits 20 voters, 16 of whom are white and 4 are non-white. Under the weighted voting system, the votes of the 4 non-white teachers would receive equal value as those of the 16 white teachers. Thus, even if most white teachers vote against recognizing Diwali, the motion wouldn’t be defeated if most of the non-white teachers voted in favour. This voting scheme allegedly “allows for further conversation and growth together” for all the teachers. If this sounds absurd, that’s because it is. Assigning votes based on race is the antithesis of racial equality. Not only that, but it also forces teachers to identify themselves based on their race. Instead of having their opinions considered based on merit, everything is filtered through a racial lens.)

JD SUPRA
— The Critical Impact of Pretext in Employment Discrimination Cases
(COMMENT: I should write a book about pretext. Because it is illegal to discriminate because of race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, political affiliation if you are a government employee, etc., those who discriminate use pretexts. Most commonly, discriminators foist negative stereotypes of your demographics upon you. If you are White, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Whites and you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, racist, etc. If you are male, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against women and you are a sexist. If you are older, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against younger people. If you are heterosexual, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against LGBTQers and you are a bigot. If you are Protestant, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Protestants. If you are German American, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-German Americans. If you are Republican, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you discriminate against non-Republicans. I would focus on pretexural discriminators who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. According to Pluralism ( https://pluralism.org/stereotypes-and-prejudice ), Protestants are anti-Catholic and anti-Semite. According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypes_of_Germans ), negative German stereotypes include being Nazis and not having a sense of humor. According to Babbel ( https://www.babbel.com/en/magazine/false-german-stereotypes ), negative German stereotypes include being unfriendly and loving cars.)
