CAPITOL FAX
— Legislators are returning to do their jobs. They should let reporters do theirs
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.)

He said there were a few, like Bromley, who assisted with his campaign. “Right now we have a lot of new construction going on across the center and southern part of the county,” Tippy said. “A big percentage of those people are coming from Illinois and they appear to be coming to Indiana because they like the lower taxes and lower cost of living.” Tippy said it appears many of these new transplants are disillusioned Illinois Democrats turning Republican or Republicans leaving Illinois for Indiana. “I think it’s a trend that has been going on for a while, but it has accelerated the last four years,” Tippy said.)

https://ktrh.iheart.com/content/2020-11-30-conservative-censorship-continues/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you thought that ‘Big Tech’ was going to back off of its conservative censorship now that the election is over? You were wrong! As documented in the New York Times! of all places, Facebook & CEO Mark Zuckerberg are actually doing more to censor news outlets and people that they don’t agree with. It’s done with a ‘secret ranking system’ that allows CNN and others to be seen, while conservative outlets and posts are restricted. Taking it one step, Facebook is also blocking individual posts (aka freedom of speech) under the guise that they use to rationalize ‘people that are bad for the world’. Scary but true according to media analyst Bryan Preston, who told KTRH “What they’re censoring are stories that they don’t like, that report facts that they don’t want people to see. That is extremely chilling! and given the power that Facebook has over our view of reality now, this cannot stand.” And while Preston believes that Facebook and the other Big Tech companies will have it much easier under Biden, the fight will continue. Who would have thought we would be talking about free speech in 2020? Scary, but true.)

— O’Brien can’t beat Foxx as a “Republican” Judge Pat O’Brien is in a unique position to unseat Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx who has made race and racism the determining factor in how she prosecutes crimes. But O’Brien can’t defeat Foxx if he wraps himself in the Republican Party and associates himself with far rightwing extremist like Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau. Cook County is Democratic with a strong conservative base but those conservative Democrats won’t support anyone who associates with extremists – Ray Hanania (DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend their platform. According to Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents, and RINOs, the more planks in the Republican Party platform that you support, the more that you are an extremist who should be gotten rid of once and for all.)

We have found constant broken bottles and glass, needles, bags of trash, blood, vomit and worse bodily fluids, actual teeth, and more and worse that I won’t recount in this setting.” Anderson said graffiti has been a continual issue and workers and customers have been subjected to vile comments from people in the parking lot. “It’s bad enough in the daytime, but it gets exponentially worse once the sun goes down,” she said.)

What if I had lied and successfully claimed Swedish ancestry? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me as well as the fact that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran and I lived in Crete 1948-1972 and in Wheaton since 1978. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com , my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.
