— 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.)

(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.)

I did NOT become a Democrat, instead, I have always been a Republican. I did NOT become a moderate or a liberal, instead, I have always been a conservative. I did NOT hide my being baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, instead, I freely admitted it. I did NOT hide my being 100% German American, instead, I freely admitted it. I did NOT become a yes-man, operative, or dupe for anyone, or paint myself as being one, instead, I have always objected to the aforesaid. I did NOT reject a job offer in 1966 from the Democrats who ran Park Forest Post Office in 1966, instead I accepted it and worked for them until they forced me to resign in 1969. I did NOT reject pressure from my coworkers to be a union member while I worked for the Park Forest Post Office, instead, I became a member and stayed a member. I did NOT enlist, I did NOT count on the GI Bill to pay for college, instead, I got accepted by UIC, I got student draft deferments 1966-1970, and I got a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971 because my father died suddenly in 1969. I did NOT remain a student at UIC, instead, I transferred to NIU in early 1969 and graduated from NIU in August of 1970. I did NOT wait for a job offer in 1970 that required a bachelor’s degree in management, instead, I accepted a job offer from Firestone Stores. I did NOT not reject a job offer in 1971 from the Democrats who ran IRS, instead, I accepted it and worked for them until I got a job offer in 1980 from the Democrats who ran GAO. I did NOT reject pressure from my coworkers to be a union member while I worked for IRS, instead, I became a member and stayed a member. I did NOT want to pay rent, instead, I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972, a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974, and a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976.

I did NOT seek promotions by helping my IRS and GAO Democrat superiors and supervisors get rid of thier employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $104,915) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $123,978) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $145,831) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $176,300) by age 40. Instead, I objected to the aforesaid, that is, I objected to patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. Further, to get promotions, I a) earned job-related master’s degrees when I was 27 (business-Loyola), 31 (accounting-DePaul), and 48 (financial markets and trading-IIT), b) earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30 (CPA), 32 (Internal Auditor), 41 (Fraud Examiner), 45 (Government Financial Manager), 47 (Financial Services Auditor), and 48 (Forensic Accountant), and c) earned a a job-related professional license (CPA) when I was 32. Further, I served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996. I did NOT avoid the stress of not passing the CPA examination, instead, I took graduate accounting courses at DePaul and the Becker CPA review and passed the examination on my first attempt in 1979. I did NOT avoid the stress of not passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination, instead, took internal auditing courses at Roosevelt and Institute of Internal Auditors and passed the examination on my first attempt in 1981. I did NOT avoid the opportunity in 1988 to become the only active member in GAO’s Chicago office in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, insead I became an active member and remained an active member. I did NOT avoid the negatives of filing lawsuits, instead, I filed them and suffered tremendous retaliation from the defendants. Further, when my attorneys withdrew because the defendants refused to settle, I pursued those lawsuits pro se. I have NOT succumbed to adverse actions from my critics/opponents, instead, I continue on as a Republican Precinct Committeeman and as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor. However, previously, they a) stopped me from raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that DuPage County Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks, b) promoted LGBTQ big time in downtown Wheaton in 2020, c) gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, d) ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, e) ended my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, f) ended my MTRO webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, g) ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, h) tried to get ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, i) ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, and j) viciously ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004.

— Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

Katlyn Smith recently wrote “Once ‘the place to go,’ Wheaton Bowl to be sold to gas station developer.”
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20220303/once-the-place-to-go-wheaton-bowl-to-be-sold-to-gas-station-developer

In 2002, I got the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) to hold its monthly meetings, and many of its other events, in the Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall, and MTRO did that until the building closed in 2019. Since 1999, I have had the best record by far for attending MTRO monthly meetings and other events. I served as MTRO webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. In addition, while I served on the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee 2003-2007, I got ICRC to hold many of its meetings and other events in the Banquet Hall. While I served on the ICRC Steering Committee, I had one of the best records for attending ICRC monthly meetings and other events.

Since 2002, I have written many reports on monthly meetings and other events that MTRO and ICRC have held in the Banquet Hall and a) included those reports in GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) posted those reports at http://www.gopillinois.com .

Since 2002, MTRO leaders, their operatives, and their dupes have blamed me and by GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters a) for Jim Ryan being defeated by Rod Blagojevich and b) for all the other losses that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered..

In 2004, in the Banquet Hall, MTRO leaders, their operatives, and their dupes a) ended my MTRO webmaster service and b) viciously crushed my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer.

In 2006, in the Banquet Hall, ICRC leaders, their operatives, and their dupes almost succeeded in getting ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I should write a book about those who blamed me and blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for Bill Brady losing to Jim Oberweis and to Judy Baar Topinka in the 2006 Illinois Republican Party gubernatorial primary.

In 2007, in the Banquet Hall, ICRC leaders, their operatives, and their dupes succeeded in throwing me off the ICRC Steering Committee.

In 2010, MTRO leaders, their operatives, and their dupes ended my MTRO webmaster service.

During 2019, MTRO leaders, their operatives, and their dupes hinted/implied/argued/shouted that my continuing success since 2009 in getting Wheaton to ban video gambling had caused Wheaton Bowl great financial harm.

I should write a book about the many extremely derrogatory things that certain past and present MTRO and ICRC leaders, their operatives, and their dupes have said about me and about my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in the Banquet Hall.

Further, I should also write a book about the extremely derrogatory things that certain past and present MTRO leaders, their operatives, and their dupes have said and done since 2005 to stop me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’d Independence Day parade and fireworks.

— This year, will Wheaton again let Republicans help sponsor its Independence Day parade and fireworks? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

Last year, Wheaton stopped me from raising funds from Republicans so that Republicans could help sponsor its Independence Day parade and fireworks, something that I had done since 2005. Last year, Glen Ellyn had tremendous success in raising funds from sponsors for its Independence Day parade and fireworks. SEE: https://www.glenellyn4thofjuly.org/sponsors This year, will Wheaton again let Republicans help sponsor its Independence Day parade and fireworks? I urge the following to urge Wheaton to let me raise funds from Republicans so that Republicans can again help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks: a) Republican candidates who will have entries in Wheaton’s Independence Day parade, b) leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party, c) Republican leaders of Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Downtown Association, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, and d) Republican residents and businesses along the parade route.

— JULY 25, 2007 FLASHBACK: Republicans made parade great event – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

(MY LETTER TO SUBURBAN LIFE EDITOR: One of the reasons why parents bring their children to parades is to see marching bands and animals. This year, for Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks, in my roles as the http://www.GOPUSA.com Illinois editor, as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, and as a Milton Township Republican precinct committeeman, I had the honor of recruiting Republicans and Republican organizations to sponsor two outstanding parade entries: The Chicago Highlanders Pipes and Drums band and Big Queenie, a 38-year-old, 10,000 pound Asian female elephant. With the elephant being the proud symbol of the Republican Party, I am very happy to report that Big Queenie won the parade’s Best Political Entry award. Outstanding Republican parade entries included Joe Birkett, DuPage County District 4 (Grant Eckhoff, Mike Formento, J.R. McBride and Debra Olson), Mike Fortner, Gwen Henry, Randy Hultgren, Chris Kachiroubas, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Ron Paul supporters, Peter Roskam, Steve Sauerberg and Bob Schillerstrom. Big Queenie, who recently visited Wheaton with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the DuPage County fairgrounds, walked the parade route behind Congressman Peter Roskam’s float. Many who stopped by the staging area before the parade kicked off took advantage of the opportunity to see the beautiful and very gentle elephant up close and take pictures of her. I hope that Republican sponsorship of Big Queenie and the outstanding Chicago Highlanders Pipe and Drums in the parade will become a tradition. Many thanks again to the following outstanding 30 Republicans and one Republican political organization who contributed from $50 to $250 each for a total of $3,300 to sponsor the Chicago Highlanders and/or Big Queenie: Mary Jo Arndt, Alan Bolds, Fred Bucholz, David Carlin, Roger Claar, Franco Coladipietro, Mike Connelly, Paul Daniels, Kirk Dillard, DuPage County Young Republicans, Bob Earl, Jim Flickinger, Mike Formento, Mike Fortner, Mike Gresk, Gwen Henry, Randy Hultgren, Bob Jacobsen, Chris Kachiroubas, Gary King, Mark Kmiecik, Bob Larsen, J.R. McBride, Debra Olson, Mike Prueter, Peter Roskam, Darlene Ruscitti, Leonard Sanchez, Ron Smith, Phil Suess and Tim Whelan. Also, many thanks again to All Star Printing for printing the many parade fliers that I hand-delivered to every home and business on the parade route.)

— Back in the “Good Old Days” – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

I attribute my successes in life to my upbringing. I was born a male in 1948. My parents were White Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL) 100% German American Crete residents. They had me baptized as a MSL. They sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961. They sent me to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. They had me confirmed as a MSL at Hope Lutheran Church in 1962. They sent me to Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966.

My outstanding parents never attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother was raised on a farm in Grant Park on the Indiana border, she never attended high school, and she stayed home and raised my brother and I. My father fought brittle type 1 diabetes from age 14, 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.

My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete while I completed courses at UIC 1966-1968 and worked for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969.

Were it not for my upbringing, I would not have been able to earn a) a job-related bachelor’s degree in management from NIU when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27 (business-Loyola), 31 (accounting-DePaul), and 48 (financial markets and trading-IIT), b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30 (CPA), 32 (Certified Internal Auditor), 41 (Certified Fraud Examiner), 45 (Certified Government Financial Manager), 47 (Certified Financial Services Auditor), and 48 (Forensic Accountant), and c) a job-related professional license (CPA) when I was 32.

Were it not for my upbringing, the Post Office would not have hired me in 1966. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970. Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971. IRS would not have hired me in 1971. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. IRS would not promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. GAO would not have hired me in 1980. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. GAO would not have promoted me in 1986 and GAO would have forced me to retire much sonner than it did in 1997. In 1997, in today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $136,387/year.

Were it not for my upbringing, I would not have been able to buy a new town home in University Park in 1972, a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974, and a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976. Were it not for my upbringing, my wife and I would not have been able to buy a home in Wheaton in 1978 and to have one built in Wheaton in 1984.

Were it not for my upbringing, I would not have been able to buy new cars in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, 1973, etc. and collector cars in 1989 and 1994.

Back in the “Good Old Days:”

— Fathers could earn enough money that mothers could stay home and raise their children.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted individual responsibility, that is, the Republican Party opposed the promotion of dependency on government and dependency on charity.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted traditional marriage and the traditional family, that is, the Republican Party opposed the promotion of LGBTQ.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted right to life, that is, the Republican Party opposed the promotion of abortion.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted enforcement of immigration laws, that is, the Republican Party opposed the promotion of mass/illegal immigration.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted enforcement of drug laws, that is, the Republican Party opposed the legalization of pot.

— The Republican Party strongly opposed the promotion of vices, that is, the Republican Party opposed the promotion of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices.

— The Republican Party strongly opposed more gun control laws.

— The Republican Party strongly promoted equal opportunity, that is, it opposed race and gender based preference giving, that is, it opposed reverse discrimination and age discrimination.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1966 as there is today, I doubt that the Post Office would have hired me or UIC would have accepted me.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1969 as there is today, I doubt that NIU would have accepted me.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1970 as there is today, I doubt that Firestone Stores would have hired me.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1971 as there is today, I doubt that Oldsmobile would have offered me a job.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1971 as there is today, I doubt that IRS would have hired me or promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1972 as there is today, I doubt that Loyola would have accepted me.

If there was as much reverse discrimination in 1976 as there is today, I doubt that DePaul would have accepted me.

If there was as much reverse discrimination and age discrimination in 1980 as there is today, I doubt that GAO would have hired me or promoted me in 1986 or let me work until I was 49 in 1997.

If there was as much reverse discrimination and age discrimination in 1992 as there is today, I doubt that IIT would have accepted me.

Career-wise, my “Good Old Days” include 1972, 1973, and 1974 when my IRS mentor promoted me to GS-9 (currently $60,840/year), GS-11 (currently $73,611/year), and GS-12 (currently $88,229/year). But then, my Democrat IRS superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there. Career-wise, my “Good Old Days” also include 1986, 1987, and 1988 when my GAO mentor got me assigned to audits of IRS and promoted me to GS-13 (currently $104,915/year). But then, my Democrat GAO superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there. Education-wise, my “Good Old Days” include 1970 when I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU, 1976 when I earned an MBA from Loyola, 1980 when I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, and 1997 when I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. My professional certification and professional license “Good Old Days” include 1979 when I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt and 1981 when I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt and became a licensed CPA. Real estate-wise, my “Good Old Days” include 1972, 1974, and 1976 when I bought real estate and 1978 and 1984 when my wife and I bought real estate. New car-wise, my “Good Old Days” include 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, etc. when I bought news cars and 1989 and 1994 when bought collector cars. My greatest “Good Old Days” include every day since I got married in 1978. But were it not for my upbringing, there would not have been any “Good Old Days.”

— Which Republican candidates for U.S. Senate, congressional, and statewide offices spoke at the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee meeting Saturday morning January 26, 2022, in Bolingbrook? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

If I was still the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, the organization would still be hosting candidate forums, and especially for candidates for U.S. Senate, congressional, statewide, Illinois Senate, Illinois House, DuPage countywide, DuPage County board, DuPage Forest Preserve, and judicial offices. I should write a book about my critic/opponents a) who objected to the candidates that I invited to participate in candidate forums and b) who objected to those who I invited to speak at TAPROOT events.

It would be great if the Illinois Republican Party would post on its website the federal, statewide, Illinois Senate, Illinois House, and judicial offices that will be on June 28, 2022 Republican primary ballots in Illinois and the announced candidates for those offices.

It would be great if the 102 Republican county party organizations would post on their websites the federal, statewide, Illinois Senate, Illinois House, judicial, countywide, county board, and forest preserve offices that will be on June 28, 2022 Republican primary ballots in their county the announced candidates for those offices.

It would be great if the Republican township party organizations would post on their websites the federal, statewide, Illinois Senate, Illinois House, judicial, countywide, county board, and forest preserve offices that will be on June 28, 2022 Republican primary ballots in their county the announced candidates for those offices.

Which Republican candidates for U.S. Senate, congressional, and statewide offices spoke at the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee meeting this Saturday morning in Bolingbrook?

According to various sources, so far, Republican candidates for U.S. Senate are Timothy Arview, Casey Chlebek, Peggy Hubbard, Lanette Hudson, Bobby Piton, Allison Salinas, Kathy Salvi, Jimmy Lee Tillman II, and Eric Wallace.

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. It promotes individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, enforcement of immigration laws, enforcement of drug laws, Second Amendment rights, and equal opportunity, that is, nor race or gender based preference giving. It opposes the promotion of dependence on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun control, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

I should write a book about the success that hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters have had in destroying conservativism in America, in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, and in my precinct. I would focus on RINO leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC), Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), etc.

I would focus on the aforesaid a) who stopped me from raising funds from DuPage County Republicans so that DuPage County Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks, b) who promoted LGBTQ big time in downtown Wheaton in 2020, c) who gerrymandered my precinct in 2015, d) who ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, e) who ended my WCC Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, f) who ended my MTRO webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, g) who ended my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, h) who tried to get ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, i) who ended my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, and j) who viciously ended my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004.

I would focus on Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, campaign volunteers, etc.

— Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

The Chicago Tribune recently asked “For candidates, how important is toeing the party line? SEE: https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/aurora-beacon-news/opinion/ct-abn-stanford-column-st-0227-20220227-lq2ybhdgzvcpzawpt5co2zs4q4-story.html

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. But tragically, ever-increasingly, since at least the 1970s, the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) has been dominated by anti-conservative RINOs who reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.

I should write a book about the aforesaid anti-conservative RINOs, their operatives, and their dupes. They focus on driving conservatives like me out of the IRP, that is, driving platform Republicans like me out of the IRP as well as the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO).

I would focus on past and present anti-conservative RINO leaders of the IRP, DuPage County Republican Organization, and MTRO. I would focus on past and present anti-conservative RINO leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Downtown Association, and Wheaton Park District.

What influence do you have? I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999. I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I raised funds from DuPage County Republicans so that DuPage County Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019. I served as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012. I served as a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC) Government Affairs Committee (GAC) member 2003-2011. I served as the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004. I served as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee (SC) member 2003-2007. I served as an American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Midwest Chapter (MC) board member 2001-2004.

What do you use that influence for? I have always used my influence to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Republican Party platform, and especially its traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks.

Who has done the most to reduce/end your influence? I should write a book about those who have done the most to reduce/end my influence.

While I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, for IRS 1971-1980 and for GAO 1980-1997, I demonstrated far more dedication to the job than my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates.

Very few of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates earned job-related professional certifications. I earned job-related professional certifications 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997.

Assuming that I fully recover, in my opinion, the main reasons why I should resume sending out the two newsletters a day ASAP is the fact that a) the June 28 Republican primary is rapidly approaching and b) the Illinois Republican communication void that I filled with those newsletters continues to exist. No one has done what I did. I sent out a newsletter each and every morning and each and every evening with links to articles of interest to Illinois Republicans that were posted on websites during the previous 12 hours. Between 2004 and January 9 of this year, those newsletters included links to 418,528 articles and information on many upcoming events.

Assuming that I fully recover, in my opinion, the main reasons why I should not resume sending out those newsletters is the fact that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes continue to do everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out the newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading the newsletters. Further, when my critics/opponents have taken adverse actions against me, far too few of those who read the newsletters have come to my defense. – Dave Diersen

Why GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters are stopped for now – Dave Diersen

http://www.gopillinois.com

— In 2004, I started putting together and sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters each and every morning. In 2015, I started putting together and sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters each and every evening too.

But for the first time, on Monday, January 10, 2022, a major health problem stopped me from doing that. I slipped and fell on ice hitting my head, right ear, and back while retrieving newspapers from my driveway apron early that Monday morning. I was in the intensive care unit at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) Monday and Tuesday, and in a regular room Wednesday, and I was discharged late that afternoon.

But things went from bad to worse and I was readmitted to CDH on Sunday, January 16, 2022. I was found to have phenomena, a small stroke, and a urinary tract infection. I was subsequently discharged to Marianjoy rehabilition center and then recently discharged from Marianjoy. Then, I was diagnosed with major blood clots in my legs.

I am far from being back on “eight cylinders.” I continue to have severe headaches, severe aches and pains, and major problems standing, sitting, walking, urinating, defecating, sleeping, etc. I have lost almost all my hearing in my right ear. I have lost lots of sleep. All the many medications that I have to take have many severe side effects.

Of course, my goal is to get back on “eight cylinders” ASAP, but my speed of recovery is slow. It may be weeks if not months until I can again spend 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together and sending them out. Until then, I focus on keeping http://www.gopillinois.com current and posting more articles on it that I have written.

Of course, many thanks to my outstanding wife and many thanks to those who have phoned me, emailed me, sent me get well cards, sent me flowers, etc.

— Diersen runs for 12th term as DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican Precinct Committeeman in Wheaton – Dave Diersen

http://www.gopillinois.com

This morning, Thursday, February 10, I sent the following letter to the approximate 150 Republican voters in my precinct in their approximate 100 homes:

Dear fellow DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republicans:

I have been greatly honored to serve as the DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican Committeeman since 1999. I am running again to serve another 2-year term starting June 28 notwithstanding the fact that I suffered a serious injury to my head and right ear and I have not yet fully recovered. I slipped and fell on ice early Monday January 10 while I was getting the newspapers on my driveway.

My outstanding wife and several of my outstanding fellow Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeemen have volunteered to circulate the nominating petitions so that I can file them on March 7 to be on the June 28 DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican primary ballot. If you might be interested in signing my nominating petition, please phone me at 630-653-0462 or email me at diersen@aol.com ASAP.

I hope to be recovered soon enough so that I can bring to your home a copy of the sample ballot and campaign literature from the candidates as soon as they are available. But if not, I will prepare envelopes with the aforesaid documents and several of my outstanding fellow Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeemen have agreed to deliver them to your home for me. Sadly, this will be the first time that I cannot gather signatures for the candidates for a primary. I have the best record for attending Milton Township Republican Organization meetings and fundraisers since 1999.

For information on which offices and which candidates will be on the ballot, please visit https://illinois.gop/  and https://www.dupagegop.com/ and https://miltongop.org/ .

For information on voter registration, voting by mail, and early voting, please visit https://dupageco.org/election/ or phone the DuPage County Election Division at 630-407-5600.

Of course, please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions that you might have.

Again, I have been greatly honored to serve as your Republican Committeeman. I would greatly appreciate your vote for me on the June 28 Republican primary ballot. I will do everything that I can to help elect those Republican candidates who win the June 28 primary election to also win the November 8 general election.

Thanks again,

— Steering Democrats to precincts – Dave Diersen

http://www.gopillinois.com

From what I see watching home purchases in my precinct since 1984, it ever-increasing looks like Democrat realtors steer home buyers to my precinct who are Democrat, moderate, liberal, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, and/or non-German American. Ever-increasingly, it looks like Democrat realtors stress to potential home buyers a) that ever-increasingly, Democrats get more votes in the precinct, for example, Biden got 269 votes while Trump got only 157, b) that there are LGBTQ-promoting churches immediately north and south of the precinct, c) that the Wheaton Warrenville School District 200 Administration Headquarters is in the precinct, and d) that a grade school and middle school are in the precinct.

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— AUGUST 16, 2012 FLASHBACK: A bunch of political info — daily – Bernard Schoenburg (COMMENT: I started sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2000. Between January 1, 2005 and January 9, 2022, those newsletters when out each and every morning, and between January 1, 2016 and January 9, 2022, they went out each and every evening too. Those newsletters included links to 418,528 articles and information on many upcoming events.
https://www.sj-r.com/story/news/state/2012/08/16/bernard-schoenburg-bunch-political-info/41733104007/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are lots of websites that compile political news, and I think it’s time I share one that I find quite interesting. It’s at www.gopillinois.com, and, as you can tell by its address, it has a Republican flavor. That is an understatement reinforced with the comments added by the compiler himself — DAVID DIERSEN of Wheaton. He introduced a recent UPI story about Republicans’ views on the drought and wildfires by saying: “Democrats blame everything bad, including bad weather, on Republicans, especially on Republicans who are conservative, White, male, older, non-poor and non-veteran.” And talking of a New York Times article about a photographer arrested while on assignment in the Bronx, Diersen wrote that since 2000, he has been thrown out of, barred from, or not advised of news conferences “by Democrats, Democrat plants, RINOs (Republicans in name only), their operatives, and their dupes.” Thus, if you don’t want to read some very pointed comments, you may not want to go to http://www.gopillinois.com. But you would be missing a treasure of links to the day’s news and opinion. Diersen, 63, is a retired federal employee who became the Illinois editor of a national GOP website in 2000, and since 2004 has put out his own Illinois compilation every day. There’s usually about 50 articles daily, he says. He’s generally up by 3 a.m. He says he spends at least 10 hours a day on this passion of his, with no pay, and has put out links to more than 117,000 articles. As his comments above hinted, party regulars don’t always greet his work with relish. He includes dissident voices within the GOP tent, and some whose credibility is questionable. But he puts it all out there. He’s a GOP precinct committeeman, and he believes in people having information. He also wants to help elect Republican candidates who “will defend and advance the party’s platform.” The site makes available plenty of Diersen history, too, including how his “liberal Democrat superiors,” in his view, forced him to take early retirement at 49 from the U.S. General Accounting Office, “because of his opposition to race and gender based preference and his participation in a class action lawsuit” on that subject. He wouldn’t mind my telling you that he also passed his CPA and Certified Internal Auditor exams on first attempts more than three decades ago. Agree or disagree with him, but Diersen provides a bunch of interesting information — every day.)

— What should motivate Republicans to help elect Republican candidates – Dave Diersen

http://www.gopillinois.com

Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. The platform promotes individual responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, enforcement of immigration laws, enforcement of illegal drug laws, defense of Second Amendment rights, and equal opportunity, that is, no race or gender based preference giving. The platform opposes promotion of dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, pot, gambling, booze, and other vices, more gun control laws, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Beyond tragically, ever-increasingly, Republican candidates in Illinois fail/refuse to defend/advance the aforesaid planks in the Republican Party platform. Ever-increasingly, they promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, pot, gambling, booze, and other vices, more gun control laws, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

Beyond tragically, ever-increasingly, to get votes from Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs, Republican candidates in Illinois hint/imply/argue/shout that they are anti-religious, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican.

Beyond tragically, ever-increasingly, Republican candidates in Illinois who reject the aforesaid planks in the Republican Party platform focus on a) getting rid of Republicans like me who support the aforesaid planks and b) getting rid of organizations like TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) that support the aforesaid planks.

I should write a book about Republican candidates in Illinois, their operatives, and their dupes who have worked the hardest since 2000 a) to get rid of Republicans like me who support the aforesaid planks in the Republican Party platform and b) to get rid of organizations like TAPROOT and ICRC that support the aforesaid planks. I would focus on those who have done the most to destroy the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), TAPROOT, and ICRC.  I would focus on those who have taken the most/strongest adverse actions against me including a) stopping me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade in fireworks in 2021, b) gerrymandering my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in 2015, c) ending my TAPROOT chairmanship in 2012, d) ending my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, e) ending my MTRO webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, f) ending my ICRC Steering Committee membership in 2007, g) almost getting ICRC to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters in 2006, h) viciously ending my bid to serve as MTRO treasure in 2004, and h) ending my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board of directors service in 2004. I would focus on the aforesaid who have done the most a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading hose newsletters.

I hope that many religious, conservative, and Republican organizations in Illinois will soon rate all the Republican candidates on June 28, 2022 ballots in Illinois on their promotion/rejection of the aforesaid planks in the Republican Party platform.

— What do you say to candidates who you have helped elect, but who then have dumped you? – Dave Diersen

I should write a book about candidates who I have helped elect, but who then have dumped me. I would focus on those candidates a) who I have obtained signatures for on their nominating petitions, b) who I have obtained campaign sign locations for, and c) who I have delivered campaign literature for.

I would focus on those candidates who I gave credit to big time for contributing money to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019. I hand-delivered flyers to all the residences and businesses on the parade route listing them as being contributors.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that none of those candidates came to my defense when my critics/opponents stopped me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks.

— Non-Republicans use Critical Race Theory to destroy Republicans – Dave Diersen

http://www.gopillinois.com

Non-Republicans use Critical Race Theory (CRT) to destroy Republicans, and especially to destroy Republicans who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. Non-Republicans use CRT to hint/imply/argue/shout that the more of the aforesaid that Republicans are, the more that they, their parents, their grandparents, their great grandparents, and the rest of their ancestors have been in America, the more that they have benefited from slavery and from discrimination against minorities and females. Non-Republicans use CRT to hint/imply/argue/shout that Republicans are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all.

Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, campaign volunteers, etc. who do not oppose CRT are non-Republicans a) who reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform and b) promote reverse discrimination and age discrimination.

I hope that many religious, conservative, and Republican organizations in Illinois will soon rate all the Republican candidates on June 28, 2022 ballots in Illinois on their relevant education, relevant work experience, and relevant professional certifications/licenses.

If I ran for a government office, I would stress that I earned a) a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT, b) a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, c) an MBA from Loyola, and d) a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU.

If I ran for a government office, I would stress that I became a ) licensed CPA, b) Certified Fraud Examiner, c) Certified Government Financial Manager, d) Certified Financial Services Auditor, and e) Forensic Account.

Since my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, I have not seriously wanted to seek any kind of a government office, but if I did, I would be best qualified for DuPage County Auditor.

— According to one Christian publication, Wheaton College is woke. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

Julia Duin has witten an article titled “An Angry Debate Over Critical Race Theory Splits Christian Colleges.” According to the article, “Evangelical groups that fall into Rae’s first category are fighting back. One Christian publication circulated the names of “woke” Christian institutions, including evangelical stalwarts such as Wheaton College near Chicago (Billy Graham’s alma mater); Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and Samford University in Birmingham, Ala. Last April, Wheaton’s first-ever “Racialized Minorities Recognition Ceremony” got some criticism and tellingly, a YouTube video for the event had the comments turned off. In an interview last April with the magazine Sojourners, Wheaton philosophy professor Nathan Cartagena said teaching his class on critical race theory was “much harder” because some students were saying the theory “is of the devil.” Cartagena did not respond to a request by Newsweek for comment.” SEE: https://www.newsweek.com/angry-debate-over-critical-race-theory-splits-christian-colleges-1678626

Wheaton College has done virtually nothing to stop anti-Christians from taking over Wheaton College, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton Park District, Wheaton Downtown Association, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. In 2021, Wheaton College let anti-Christians stop DuPage Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade in fireworks.

— Why did GAO hire me in 1980? Why did IRS hire me in 1971? Why did the Post Office hire me in 1966? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

Democrats run GAO, IRS, and the Post Office. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. Emma Goldberg asks “Do You Know Who That Worker You Just Hired Really Is?” and says “Employers love to talk about “authenticity.” But psychologists say nearly everyone uses some form of deception to get a job.” SEE: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/02/17/business/jobs-hiring-fraud.html

The aforesaid Democrats who hired me erroneously believed that they could turn me into a Democrat. They erroneously believed that taking adverse actions against me would do the trick. My Democrat Post Office superiors disallowed my sick leave requests in 1968 and 1969 and forced me to resign in 1969. My Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974, got rid of my mentor in 1975, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and did not promote me beyond GS-12. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, gave me unfair job assignments, unfair performance expectations, and unfair performance appraisals, got rid of my mentor in 1987, did not promote me beyond GS-13, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.

For GAO, I worked outside of GAO’s Chicago office only when I was assigned to IRS audits and to out-of-town audits. For IRS, I worked outside of IRS’s Chicago, Harvey, and Joliet offices only when I made field calls to collect delinquent taxes. For Firestone Stores, I worked outside of Firestone’s Chicago Heights store only when I pumped gasoline.

In 1966, when I was 18 years old postal employee, I was a GS-4 (military equivalent: Corporal). In 1971, when I was 22 years old IRS employee, I was a GS-7 (military equivalent: Master Sargent). In 1974, when I was 25 years old IRS employee, I was a GS-12 (military equivalent: Captain). In 1986, when I was 38 years old GAO employee, I was a GS-13 Step 1 (military equivalent: Major). In 1997, when I was 49 years old GAO employee, I was a GS-13 Step 10 (military pay equitant: Lieutenant Colonel).

Democrats are nasty. My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government stressed to my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government who were veterans that I avoided the draft.

— What has shaped your views on Blacks – Dave Diersen

All that I can recall about everyone around me concerning Blacks, including my parents, my grandparents, my brother, my relatives, my neighbors, my classmates, my superiors, my supervisors, my coworkers, my subordinates, etc., is compassion for Blacks.

What has shaped your views on Blacks? I had extremely little interaction with Blacks while I attended Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962, Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966, UIC 1966-1968, NIU 1969-1970, Loyola 1972-1976, DePaul 1976-1980, Becker CPA Review 1978-1979, Roosevelt 1980-1981, and IIT 1992-1997.

I had extremely little interaction with Blacks while I did yard work and delivered newspapers in Crete 1962-1964. I had little interaction with Blacks while I washed dishes in Chicago Heights 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes in Flossmoor, chipped slag in South Chicago Heights, and pumped gasoline in South Chicago Heights in 1966; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in DeKalb in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances in Chicago Heights 1970-1971; and pumped gasoline in Chicago Heights 1971-1972. None of my superiors or supervisors were Blacks.

I had some interaction with Blacks while I delivered mail for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. Some of my coworkers were Blacks, but none of my superiors or supervisors were Black. Some of the residences that I delivered mail to were occupied by Blacks.

In 1971, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That resulted in a) my Firestone Store boss firing me and b) my accepting a job offer from IRS.

I had lots of interactions with Blacks while I collected delinquent taxes for IRS in Harvey 1972-1973, in Joliet 1973-1974, and in Chicago 1971 and 1973-1980. Many of my coworkers were Blacks and many of the delinquent taxes that I collected were from Blacks. One of my IRS supervisors was Black while I worked in Chicago 1974-1976. He treated me far more fairly than the Asian American supervisor that I had immediately before him.

I had lots of interactions with Blacks while I audited federal agencies for GAO in Chicago 1980-1997. Some of my superiors and supervisors were Black and many of my coworkers and subordinates were Black. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors a) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” and b) gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate. While I served on the Executive Committee (EC) of the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter 1983-1996, some of my fellow EC members were Black.

I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972. I lived in it full-time 1972-1974 and then weekends 1974-1976. I rented it out 1976-1984 and I sold it in 1984. Of course, that involved interactions with Blacks.

I have been married to my outstanding wife since 1978. Without her outstanding help and encouragement, I might not have been able a) to graduate from DePaul in 1980 and from IIT in 1997, b) to pass the CPA examination in on my first attempt in 1979 and to pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, c) to become a licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Account in 1997, d) to be hired by GAO in 1980 and promoted in 1986, e) to buy new cars in 1978, 1989, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2005, 2012, 2016, 2019, and 2021, f) to buy collector cars in 1989 and 1994, and g) to buy a home with her in Wheaton 1978 and to have one built with her in Wheaton in 1984. Since we got married in 1978, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I would not have been able to have done any of the aforesaid without her. In my defense, before we got married, I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, IRS hired me in 1971 and promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, Oldsmobile offered me a job in 1971, Firestone Stores hired me in 1970, I bought a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976, I bought a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974, I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972, and I bought new cars in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, and 1973.

My IRS mentor promoted me to GS-9 (currently $60,840/year) in 1972, to GS-11 (currently $73,611/year) in 1973, and to GS-12 (currently $88,229/year) in 1974. My Democrat IRS superiors got rid of him in 1975. If they had not done that, he would soon have promoted me to GS-13 (currently $104,915/year).

My GAO mentor hired me in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me to GS-13 (currently $104,915/year) in 1986. My Democrat GAO superiors forced him to retire in 1987. If they had not done that, he soon would have promoted me to GS-14 (currently $123,978/year).

If my Democrat GAO superiors had not forced my mentor to retire, they would not have been able to a) not promote me to GS-14, b) throw me off audits of IRS, c) give me unfair job assignments, d) give me unfair performance expectations, e) give me unfair performance appraisals, f) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and g) force me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.

— I have been fighting age discrimination since I was 25 years old in 1973. – Dave Diersen

http://gopillinois.com

I have been fighting age discrimination since I was 25 years old in 1974. The Democrats who run the federal government use Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, up-or-out, unfair job assignments, unfair performance expectations, unfair performance appraisals, budget cuts, early outs, etc. to get rid of their employees like me who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they fail/refuse to promote to GS-13 (currently $104,915/year) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $123,978/year) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $145,831/year) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $176,300/year) by age 40. While I made GS-12 (currently $88,229/year) when I was 25 in 1974, my Democrat IRS superiors failed/refused to promote me to GS-13. I did not make GS-13 until I was 38 years old in 1986. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Previously, they had given me unfair job assignments, given me unfair performance expectations, given me unfair performance appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.

Starting when I was 25, I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became the only employee in GAO’s Chicago office who was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. In 1998, I filed a lawsuit against GAO charging political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. SEE: https://gopillinois.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DiersenGAOFifthAmendedComplaint.pdf for the fifth amended complaint filed April 25, 2001. The lawsuit was filed by Annapolis, Maryland Attorney Walter T. Charlton in July of 1998 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.  In April of 2000, it was initially transferred to Judge Robert W. Gettleman in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois as Case No, 00cv2437, and then to Judge Amy St. Eve. Eve granted GAO summary judgement and the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit upheld that ruling in 2005.

Tragically for me, far too many Republican elected officials in Illinois have no problem with using Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, up-or-out, unfair job assignments, unfair performance expectations, unfair performance appraisals, budget cuts, early outs, etc. get rid of 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.

Tragically for me, far too many Republican elected officials in Illinois a) reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform and b) believe that federal employees who are veterans should receive preference all through their careers and not just for hiring.

What is your national origin? 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. 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.

Promotions were extremely scarce while I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, and especially while I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, for IRS 1971-1980, and for GAO 1980-1997, and especially for employees who were Republican, conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, married, non-poor, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. My superiors focused on a) getting rid of their employees who were the aforesaid and b) promoting their employees who were Democrat, moderate, liberal, minority, female, younger, veteran, non-married, non-rich, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.

One of the biggest mistakes that I made in life was avoiding the draft. I sought and obtained a) student draft deferments 1966-1970 and b) a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. In 1966, I could have, but I did not, challenge being 1-A instead of 4-F a) because my eyesight could not be corrected to 20-20, b) because I had partial red/green color blindness, and c) because I had Osgood-Schlatter disease SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease  I could walk, but I could not run. Starting in 1966, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me for avoiding the draft. They especially demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me to my Democrat Post Office, Firestone Stores, IRS, and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who were veterans.

— Money Magazine – Dave Diersen

http://gopillinois.com

In its February 1978 issue, Money Magazine published a 4-page article about me and my future wife. The article reads like Money Magazine took advice from my Democrat IRS superiors on how to a) foist negative government stereotypes on me, b) paint me as being grossly overpaid, and c) paint my education deductions as being improper. The article hints/implies/argues/shouts that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I took at DePaul 1976-1980 a) did not relate to my job duties, b) did not maintain or improve my job skills, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” and e) were a distraction. Money Magazine and IRS would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. In its article on me, Money Magazine called the studio condo that I bought in downtown Chicago in 1974 my pied-a-terre. In fact, I bought the condo for three reasons. First, so that I could walk to work at my new IRS job in the Loop. Second, so that I could walk to graduate business classes at Loyola. And third, I could not sell my University Park town home without suffering a big loss. Of course, ever since the article was published, all my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used everything in it that they could against me. I should have sued Money Magazine.

— Daily Driver – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

My wife and I are very happy with our 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier LS which has been our daily driver since I bought it from my aunt in 2010. But I am giving lots of thought to what its replacement should be if we lose use of it. I only buy American-nameplate vehicles. I prefer buying new vehicles. My wife and I prefer our daily driver to be a smaller vehicle. It would sit outside because our garage is full and my wife does not like driving in garages and backing out of garages. I am considering a new loaded Ford EcoSport and a new loaded Chevrolet Trax. Your comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

Our daily driver was a 1990 Ford Thunderbird LX 2004-2010, 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 1996-2004, 1990 Ford Thunderbird LX 1994-1996, 1994 Ford Thunderbird during 1994, and 1978 Chevrolet Chevette 1978-1994. My daily driver was a 1962 Chevrolet BelAir 1971-1978, 1974 Dodge Dart 1973-1974, 1969 Dodge Charger SE 1968-1971, 1968 Oldsmobile 442 1967-1968, 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint 1966-1967, and 1958 Chevrolet BelAir 1964-1966.

In 1964, I decided to and I subsequently did earn a college degree. I started taking college-preparatory courses at Crete-Monee High School.

In 1964, I decided to and I did get accepted by UIC in 1966 because I could afford to attend UIC. My parents could provide me with room and board in their home in Crete while I took courses at UIC. I graduated in the upper 20% of my class in 1966 and scored 24 on the ACT.

In 1964, I decided to and I did pay for my college expenses by working part-time jobs. I washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights 1964-1966.

— 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
