ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— 6/5/24 PRESS RELEASE: This Isn’t the First Time Democrats Raised Taxes CHICAGO — Today, JB Pritzker signed legislation that pushed a BILLION dollars in new taxes onto Prairie State residents. Without billions in federal assistance, Governor Pritzker signed the largest tax-and-spend bill in Illinois HISTORY and is making you and your families pay for it. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time. . .”Illinois Democrats’ bloated budget, which is filled with hundreds-of-millions of dollars of new tax increases for pet projects, illegal immigrants and his socialist agenda, is bad for Illinois,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy. “Illinois families are dealing with Bidenflation, higher prices and more financial problems than ever before and Democrats’ solution is to take even more of their money. Pritzker needs to stop treating taxpayers as his personal piggy bank as he dreams of running for President and of being the far-left’s tax-and-spend darling.”

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: Judge rules unconstitutional Gov. J.B. Pritzker-backed election law that aided Democrats in November. – RICK PEARSON (COMMENT: U.S. President was the only contested race on the Republican primary ballot in my precinct. One office on the ballot would have been “no candidate” if it had not been filled by a write-in candidate.  As Democrat leaders ever-increasingly flood Illinois with voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats, anticipate/expect that because the likelihood of winning is less, fewer candidates will run for offices as Republicans and those who do run will be less qualified for the offices that they seek. Further, anticipate/expect that Republican leaders will ever-increasingly encourage only those who are the following to run: non-conservative, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German America, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Therefore, anticipate/expect that Republican organizations will ever-increasingly run candidates.)

(COMMENT: When you were young, what opportunities were you given? Starting in grade school, I knew that I wanted to earn a college degree and that because my parents lacked money, I would have to work my way through college. I was given the following opportunities and I took them a) I did yard work 1962-1964, b) I delivered newspapers 1962-1966, c) I washed dishes 1964-1966, d) I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, e) I delivered mail 1966-1969, and f) I worked on an automobile assembly line in 1970. Because I took the aforesaid opportunities, I was able to and I did a) buy a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air in 1964, b) buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966, c) pay for my UIC expenses 1966-1968, d) buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967, e) buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968, f) pay for my NIU expenses 1969-1970, and g) graduate debt-free from NIU in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management and owning that Charger.)

Neither of my parents attended college. I had to work my way through college. In today’s dollars, my father never earned more than $50,000/year.

— Looting as a way of life. Democrats’ mantra is centralized power and redistribution of wealth. – Robert Knight (COMMENT: Under the Democrats , anticipate that Democrats will ever-increasingly loot.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2023/apr/21/looting-as-way-of-life/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As for the street version of looting, Chicago’s next mayor, Brandon Johnson, refused to strongly condemn rioting in his city. Hundreds of “youths” rampaged downtown, attacking tourists and smashing things. But the mayor-elect seemed more worried that the little rascals might have become unpopular. “In no way do I condone the destructive activity we saw in the Loop and lakefront this weekend,” he said. “It is unacceptable and has no place in our city. However, it is not constructive to demonize youth who have otherwise been starved of opportunities in their own communities.” It’s not their fault, you see. In 2020, Mr. Johnson was interviewed after looters ransacked dozens of stores in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. The young newswoman repeatedly gave Mr. Johnson a chance to decry the lawlessness. But he would have none of it. Instead, he ranted against — you guessed it — corporations that make “profit.” You know, the ones that manufacture or sell things that make modern life possible. One of those awful corporations, Walmart, is closing four Chicago stores because they are losing too much money to thieves and are unable to protect employees and customers from violent criminals. Mr. Johnson insisted that the mobs of teens and 20-somethings cleaning out stores just want to be able to “eat.” That’s why they steal those yummy cigarettes, beer, jewels, Coach purses and smartphones. The same goes for a dozen looters who ransacked a Louis Vuitton store in nearby Oak Brook, Illinois, last year, making off with $100,000 in merchandise. They just want to eat, too. More and more companies are showing that they have finally had it with crime-ridden cities.)

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

Legislators in the state House voted to repeal the notification law, sending the measure to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk. Pritzker is expected to sign the measure into law, but his office did not respond to a request for comment after the Legislature passed the repeal. – Rachel Hinton

— The Strange Tale of the Freedom Phone, a Smartphone for Conservatives. A 22-year-old Bitcoin millionaire wants Republicans to ditch their iPhones for a low-end handset that he hopes to turn into a political tool. – Jack Nicas
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/technology/freedom-phone-smartphone-conservatives.html
— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats viciously demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who do not promote wearing masks.
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/opinion/coronavirus-masks-school-board-meetings.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Public schools have long been an irresistible battleground for America’s culture warriors. On issues ranging from sex education to desegregation, public prayer to evolution to the Pledge of Allegiance, cultural cage matches are frequently fought on the backs of local schools, with board members, educators and students too often caught in the fray.)
— Dawn Turner Looks Back on Her ’70s Girlhood, and Those Who Got Left Behind – Linda Villarosa
(COMMENT: Did you seek admission to the University of Illinois in Urbana? I did not. Neither my parents nor I could afford it. But UIC did admit me in 1966. I could afford UIC a) because my parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete, b) because I owned a new car to commute to/from classes and work that I had paid for with money that I had saved washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights 1964-1966, and c) because I worked as many hours that I could part-time for the Park Forest Post Office.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/books/review/dawn-turner-three-girls-from-bronzeville.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Driving Turner’s narrative is a vexing question that continues to haunt her: How did she manage to accumulate the signifiers of success — a college degree, a career, a husband, a home outside the city — while Kim lost a baby as a teenager, sank into alcoholism and died of a heart attack at 23; and Debra battled drug addiction and eventually shot a man to death? . . . Dawn, Debra and Kim all had a leg up in life, as so-called children of the dream: the first generation to realize the hard-won freedoms of the civil rights movement. But only Turner was able to grab hold of the advantages, entering the University of Illinois at Urbana on the early tide of affirmative action, one of just a thousand African American students in a sea of 34,500.)
— N.F.L. Will Allow Six Social Justice Messages on Players’ Helmets. The decals, with messages such as “Stop Hate” and “Black Lives Matter,” are part of the league’s efforts to show solidarity with players who have protested against racism and police brutality. – Michael Levenson
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/05/sports/nfl-social-justice.html

NEW YORK POST
— Why most Americans no longer honor unions on Labor Day – Editorial
(COMMENT: What is your attitude toward union members? I should write a book about those who have used my almost 12 years of union membership while I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969 and for IRS 1971-1980 against me the most. They hint/imply/argue/shout that because of federal unions, I was grossly overpaid and my benefits were far too generous. In today’s dollars, my salary increased from $48,445/year in 1971 to $97,395/year in 1980. In my defense, I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (NIU-management) when I was 21 in 1970, a job-related master’s degree (Loyola- MBA) when I was 27, a job-related professional certification (CPA) when I was 30, and I had almost completed the requirements for a second job-related master’s degree (DePaul-Accounting).)

— We’ve Never Protected the Vulnerable. – Aaron E. Carroll
