REASON
— Abolishing the Filibuster Is About Power, Not Anti-Racism Even Joe Biden and Barack Obama were willing to acknowledge this basic fact just a few years ago. – ERIC BOEHM
(DIERSEN: According to Democrats, those who are in the majority discriminate against those who are in the minority. In what ways are you in the minority? Only 157 in my precinct voted for Trump while 269 voted for Biden. Only 26,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump while 39,530 voted for Biden. Only 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump while 281,222 voted for Biden. Only 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump while 3,471,915 voted for Biden.)
https://reason.com/2021/03/26/abolishing-the-filibuster-is-about-power-not-anti-racism/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the Senate majority prepared to abolish the filibuster in order to advance its political agenda, a long-tenured member of the chamber issued a stern warning. “We should make no mistake. This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power-grab by the majority party,” then-Sen. Joe Biden (D–Del.) said during a speech delivered on May 23, 2005, from the Senate floor. Calling it “the single most significant” vote he would cast in more than three decades as a member of the Senate, Biden admonished Republicans for trying to blow up the filibuster to get judicial nominees confirmed with a simple majority. “Folks who want to see this change want to eliminate one of the procedural mechanisms designed for the express purpose of guaranteeing individual rights and they also, as a consequence, would undermine the protections of the minority point of view in the heat of majority excess,” he said.)

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2021/02/12/matt-gaetz-gop-establishment-has-a-frontman-in-adam-kinzinger/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Thursday on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) discussed his ongoing feud with colleague Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) over the direction of the Republican Party and former President Donald Trump’s role in the party. Gaetz reacted to Kinzinger’s efforts to steer the party away from Trump and his allies in the post-Trump presidency era. “If Adam Kinzinger wants to challenge me in a Republican primary, he better pack a lunch if he’s coming to northwest Florida,” Gaetz said. “I think I could win a Republican primary in my district or in the state of Wyoming based on the crowds I got there.” “Donald Trump was a threat to the establishment in both parties, Laura, and in the Republican Party, the establishment wants their power back, and they found their frontman in Adam Kinzinger,” Gaetz continued. “I believe we should still be the America first party that stands against starting wars in places that excessively entangle our country in foreign matters. I don’t think we should invite every illegal alien across our borders so that corporate America can have lower wages for our fellow Americans, and I don’t think we should have trade deals that benefit Wall Street but hollow out the towns and cities throughout our great nation.” The Florida Republican lawmaker reminded viewers that Kinzinger and other Trump critics, including Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), sought jobs from the former president in his presidency’s early stages. “He wanted to be Trump’s secretary of the Air Force,” Gaetz added. “It’s just so funny to me, Laura, that all these people that ended up being anti-Trump wanted jobs with Trump. Romney wanted to be the secretary of state. Kinzinger wanted to be the secretary of the Air Force. He even enlisted my help to get that job. And then when they didn’t get that job, they wanted with President Trump, they all of a sudden decided to accelerate their own fame by becoming critics.”)

And if their resentment continues to grow, it could signal a major shift in the political landscape. Remember: conservatives and the Republican Party have long been the most reliable advocates of business.

The more of the following that a Trump-supporter is, the faster that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters will get rid of them: White, male, older, non-poor, law enforcement officer, veteran, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.voanews.com/usa/who-were-us-capitol-rioters
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They found that in contrast to right-wing extremists arrested over the past five years, the Capitol rioters make up an older, better employed crowd. The majority are white and male. Sixty-six percent are 34 years or older; 85% have jobs; 13% are business owners, while 27% hold white-collar jobs. . .Now, nearly five weeks after the attack, researchers at the University of Chicago have concluded that the majority of the rioters were not members of far-right groups but “normal” Trump supporters — part of his political base. Among them were doctors, lawyers, architects and business owners. . .Of the 221 defendants the researchers investigated, 198 had no known links to militias or other far-right groups. That is about 90% of the total. The researchers characterize these unaffiliated rioters as “normal” pro-Trump activists.)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— ILGOP Selects Don Tracy as Next Chairman. Springfield businessman and lawyer becomes the first downstate chairman since 1988.
https://illinois.gop/ilgop-selects-don-tracy-as-next-chairman/
https://mailchi.mp/d9760b6d6f55/icymi-pritzker-admin-mia-while-over-20-of-lasalle-veterans-home-residents-die-of-covid-4741676
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: In December of 2020, outgoing Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider announced a transition plan in which there would be an open and transparent process for the selection of a new chairman. Today, after lengthy interviews with the three finalists, spirited discussion, and a weighted vote amongst the ILGOP State Central Committee, Don Tracy of Springfield has been chosen as the next chairman of the Illinois Republican Party and has unanimous support from the committee. Tim Schneider immediately offered his resignation and Don Tracy accepted the role of chairman to fill the remaining two years of Schneider’s term. Chairman Don Tracy has released the following statement in response to his selection: “I am truly honored and excited to have been chosen by the State Central Committee to serve as Chairman of the Illinois Republican Party. I want to thank each member for the opportunity to serve. I promise to lead with honesty, integrity, and the vigor we need to turn Illinois around. I also want to thank the other two finalists – Mark Shaw and Scott Gryder – for their tireless work on behalf of the Republican Party. I look forward to working with them to elect more Republicans. I ran for this position because I love Illinois – it’s my home – and I believe the ILGOP can be a tremendous catalyst for change in this state. The upcoming election cycle can be monumental if we seize on the tremendous opportunities before us. We have a weakened Governor who can be defeated; we have a US Senate seat to win; we are well-positioned to win back Congressional seats; we can claw back seats in the state legislature if we recruit the right candidates; and lastly, we have an historic opportunity to elect a fourth Republican to the state Supreme Court for the first time ever. The only way we can capitalize on these opportunities in 2022 is if we unite the party. My number one priority is to give every Republican a seat at the table and give every Republican a voice. Regardless of our differences, Republicans are the only hope for turning Illinois around and keeping it from becoming a depopulated, over-taxed, and anti-police financial basket case. There’s too much at stake in 2022 to be anything less than a united band of brothers and sisters in the fight to save Illinois. So, whatever your political leanings, wherever you live – if you want to fight corruption, restore fiscal sanity, grow our economy, and stand for law and order – you’re on our team. It’s time to suit up, work together, and bring home some wins for the people of Illinois.” Don Tracy is a successful businessman and lawyer from Springfield, Illinois. Born and raised in rural Mt. Sterling (Brown County, Illinois), he is the oldest of twelve children. Don and his eleven siblings own the thriving family business, Dot Foods, Inc., a national redistributor of food and related products, and other national businesses. Headquartered in Mt. Sterling (population: 2,025), Dot Foods, Inc. was founded in 1960 by Don’s father and currently employs 6,000 people across the United States and Canada. Don is the first chairman of the Illinois Republican Party from outside Chicago and the collar counties since 1988.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Members of the Illinois Republican Party on Saturday picked a former gaming board chief to be the next head of the state party. Don Tracy, a Springfield attorney who was appointed to lead the Illinois Gaming Board by former Gov. Bruce Rauner, won the backing of members of the state GOP’s central committee. Tracy was not immediately available for comment. In a statement earlier this week, Tracy said the “state is in danger” of “becoming a depopulated, left wing, one party, over-taxed, and anti-police financial basket case. “Having been born in Illinois, and spent most of my life in Illinois, I am determined to help reverse Illinois’ decline,” he said. Tracy faced allegations in 2019 of making or directing several political contributions to Rauner in violation of state gambling laws. He labeled the report a “political hit job” and a “bunch of baloney.” The attorney beat out two other candidates vying to lead the party — Lake County Republican Chair Mark Shaw, who currently serves as state party co-chair and president of the Republican County Chairmen’s Association, and Kendall County Board Chair Scott Gryder. Former chair Tim Schneider announced in December he’d be stepping down from the position, which he called the “honor of a lifetime.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois Republicans pick Springfield businessman as new party chairman – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-illinois-republican-party-gop-new-chairman-20210207-w2sbznaw4farxlonp2uy5btuzm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Don Tracy, a former state Gaming Board chairman and unsuccessful 2010 lieutenant governor candidate, was picked by top Republicans on Saturday as the new Illinois GOP chairman. . .The election was based on the weighted votes of the 18-member Republican State Central Committee, which met in Bolingbrook. The vote was close, 52% for Tracy and 48% for Shaw, according to two sources, who asked not to be identified because the results were pledged by members to remain secret. The party then agreed to make the choice unanimous. “I promise to lead with honesty, integrity, and the vigor we need to turn Illinois around,” Tracy said in a statement after hours of candidate interviews and discussion. Contending the GOP has “tremendous opportunities” in 2022 in what is now a one-party Democratic state, Tracy emphasized the need for unity. . .The pick of Tracy was viewed as an establishment conservative GOP choice over Shaw, a sometimes controversial figure who previously sought the chairmanship. Shaw orchestrated the December effort among hard-liners that led former Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider to agree to step down as party leader with more than a year left in his term. Schneider was Rauner’s hand-picked choice for GOP chair in May 2014. . .Tracy has donated more than $400,000 to candidates and causes since 1999, state campaign finance records show, primarily to himself and his sister-in-law, but also to local GOP causes in candidates in Springfield. He also gave $25,000 to the successful effort to defeat Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s effort to have voters approve a graduated-rate income tax amendment to the state constitution on Nov. 3. Tracy also has given more than $10,000 over the years to Family PAC, a socially conservative group that has fought abortion and gay rights in Springfield, state records show. Tracy has long opposed abortion rights and has touted his support of gun-owner rights.)
— Illinois GOP says Rep. Adam Kinzinger and other Republicans who voted to impeach Trump ‘created widespread division and anger’ in the party – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-adam-kinzinger-illinois-republicans-20210205-7cwxhciinzcmvjyaue6ohenc2y-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state party’s rebuke of Kinzinger falls short of actions taken by other state parties against their GOP congressional members who voted for impeachment. Some have issued a censure, a statement of strong disapproval but carrying no formal penalties, against those representatives. In Illinois, LaSalle County Republicans voted to censure Kinzinger, whose sprawling 16th Congressional District includes the county. Kinzinger spokeswoman Maura Gillespie said Kinzinger plans to speak early next week with GOP county chairmen and committee members in his district “to hear their concerns and share with them where he stands on things.” “Congressman Kinzinger looks forward to building on that solid foundation as they all work together to navigate these next four years under a Democrat majority and through the course of this pandemic, keeping the focus on serving the community and the shared interests of the party,” she said. Kinzinger’s actions had been expected to become a subject of discussion on Saturday when top state Republicans convened in Bolingbrook and picked former Illinois Gaming Board Chairman Don Tracy of Springfield as a replacement for Chairman Tim Schneider. But the GOP statement made it clear that it wanted the meeting to focus on the future and not on Kinzinger.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Don Tracy chosen as new ILGOP Chair
https://capitolfax.com/2021/02/06/don-tracy-chosen-as-new-ilgop-chair/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I don’t have a press release from the ILGOP, but I do have one from the IDCCA… Following the Illinois Republican Party electing Raunerite Don Tracy as their new Party Chair, President Kristina Zahorik of the Illinois Democratic County Chairs Association (IDCCA) released the following statement: “It is rich that the Illinois GOP appointed a new chair with a history of corrupt behavior. We repeatedly watch Illinois Republicans cry crocodile tears over political corruption, and today they proved they’re the Grand Old Party of hypocrisy with their appointment of Don Tracy.” The State of Illinois Office of Inspector General found that Don Tracy illegally made campaign contributions through his wife while serving on the Illinois Gaming Board. The report said Tracy “made loans and contributions either directly, or through his wife, to political committees” in violation of state law. Tracy was appointed to the Gaming Board by former Republican Governor Bruce Rauner in 2015. . .From Mary Morrissey, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Illinois…“As the Republican Party struggles to take control of its party back from white supremacists and violent extremists, Illinois Republicans have chosen a leader whose ties to Donald Trump and Bruce Rauner promise a return to the failed policies of the past. The Illinois GOP has deemed Don Tracy, a Trump supporter who resigned as the Illinois Gaming Board chair after steering illegal contributions to former Governor Rauner’s campaign, as their best hope to carry their party into the future. It will be interesting to see if the Illinois Republican Party will continue to embrace questionable leadership, division and extremism or consider working with Democrats to find solutions that lift up workers and families across Illinois. We aren’t holding our breath.”)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY

https://mailchi.mp/b120fc223d01/icymi-pritzker-admin-mia-while-over-20-of-lasalle-veterans-home-residents-die-of-covid-4739456
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Ten Republican members of the US House of Representatives have formally voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, and a few in the Senate may join them as well. This action has created widespread division and anger among the Republican party both nationally and here in Illinois. In response the Illinois Republican Party has released the following statement: “We strongly disagree with any Republican, Congressman Adam Kinzinger included, who voted to impeach President Trump or those who vote to convict him in the U.S. Senate, but we will let the voters be the arbiters of any vote taken by an elected official. As we prepare to select a new chairman of the Illinois Republican Party on Saturday, it’s our collective belief that uniting the party will be the single greatest endeavor of the new chairman. Our elected officials must unite behind defeating President Biden’s radical left-wing agenda. In just two weeks in office, the President has already given into extremists by cancelling the Keystone pipeline, refusing to enforce our immigration laws, and cowering to the teachers unions who refuse to educate our children in-person despite all the evidence of its necessity. The stakes of the 2022 election here in Illinois – defeating Gov. JB Pritzker and Sen. Tammy Duckworth, winning back congressional seats, and electing Republican judges to the Illinois Supreme Court – are too monumental to engage in a circular firing squad. We cannot play into Democrat hands by fighting amongst each other, so we encourage all Republicans to focus on the future rather than relitigating the past.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— A view from Chicago for the Illinois Republican Party – STEPHEN F. BOULTON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/commentary/ct-opinion-republican-party-illinois-20210129-b5k5xefiqfel3khfvhbfmfjnyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 6. Vocally oppose cancel culture. Our discourse is now dominated by a social theory which recognizes only “oppressors” and “oppressed” with no middle ground or differing opinions allowed. Our youth are being indoctrinated with this destructive mindset in our schools. An example is the “culturally responsive” teaching standard currently proposed by the Illinois State Board of Education, which will force teachers to adopt a curriculum of “progressive viewpoints,” under which teachers must “work actively” in the classroom against “systems of oppression” while promoting “student activism and advocacy” for a progressive agenda. Cancel culture is at root a Marxist-based model, and as with all Marxist theories, pits different groups of people against each other in bitter, unending conflict. Adopting such doctrines in government results in expanding hatred, suppression of speech, economic decline and social disintegration, as we are already seeing in parts of America today. If the Republicans will not stand for civility and freedom, who will? The Chicago Republican Party has begun planning for the 2022 election. We urge all Republicans to join forces to rescue and restore Illinois.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Only nine Illinois counties grew in population over the past decade and four of them were in the west and southwest suburbs — Kane, DuPage, Kendall and Will counties, an analysis from a Chicago planning agency shows. . .Over the same time period, DuPage County grew by 2,575 people, or 0.28%. Will County grew by 7,207, or 1.06%, and Kane County grew by 9,502 people, or 1.82%. Kendall County saw the highest rate of increase of any Illinois county, growing by 6.65%, or 7,860 people. . .Growth in Kane, DuPage, Kendall and Will is likely tied to people already in the region moving farther into the suburbs, he said, and to better job growth in the Chicago area than elsewhere in the state.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois GOP to begin seeking state chairman applicants on Monday – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-illinois-republican-chairman-20210109-tyqzd5cfebdddetml25jurtivy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Republican Party agreed on a time frame for selecting a new state chairman Saturday, launching the process for potential candidates to apply on its website during a 10-day period beginning Monday. The goal, the party’s state central committee agreed, was to select someone by as soon as Jan. 30 to replace Tim Schneider, who announced last month he was stepping down after more than six years in the post. Schneider is leaving the post before his term ends May 23 amid a push by conservative hard-liners on the 18-member committee who sought someone more in line with their views, even though Schneider was an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump’s reelection bid. . .The state GOP leadership committee will meet on Jan. 23 to screen applicants and schedule a date to meet with finalists. A week later, the panel hopes to conclude interviews with finalists with the potential of voting that day on a new chairman. The GOP state central committee established some guidelines for candidates for the post, including a requirement to stay neutral in party primary contests and that the applicant not be a vendor or stakeholder in any campaign, including work for election technology or political consulting firms. In addition, the committee said it was seeking candidates who are not currently salaried public officials or candidates for public office that provides a salary. It also said it preferred candidates who are not registered lobbyists or government employees. The committee, however, did not issue a blanket ban on such applicants and said the individual’s circumstances should be considered by committee members. The final decision will come down to a weighted vote of the state central committee members, representing each of Illinois’ 18 congressional districts, based on 2020 primary results.)

DAILY HERALD
— What Illinois Republicans are seeking in a new chairman – Marni Pyke
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20210109/what-illinois-republicans-are-seeking-in-a-new-chairman
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Saturday, Illinois Republican State Central Committee members approved a process and timeline for replacing Chairman Tim Schneider of Bartlett, who is stepping down. The hope is to name a new chairman by the Jan. 30 meeting, Grogan said. Committee members are “looking forward to getting the best qualified man or woman who comes forward at the helm,” Grogan said. “You have to come in already knowing Illinois politics and the stakeholders.” The committee needs “to go find a Solomon” who can bridge regional and ideological divides, former Republican state senator and gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale said. Typically, the top Republican in the state steers the selection of the party chairman, as former Gov. Bruce Rauner did with Schneider, but right now there’s no apparent kingmaker. Possible contenders include: Illinois National Committeeman Richard Porter, a Northfield attorney; longtime Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar; Cook County Republican Party Chairman and Illinois Republican State Central Committee member Sean Morrison of Palos Park; and Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts, who has been a fundraiser for Trump and the Republican National Committee. As of November 2020, the Democratic Party of Illinois had $2.63 million cash on hand and the Republican Party of Illinois had $286,067, according to OpenSecrets.org. Making up the shortfall will require a savvy fundraiser, one comfortable attending chicken dinners and golf outings and building rapport with wealthy Republican influencers like Uline founder Richard Uihlein and Citadel CEO Kenneth Griffin. . .He added that process for selecting a new chairman will be posted on the party’s illinois.gop website Monday. It will include an application to be completed by Jan. 21 or 22, followed by “a selection and vetting process, with the conclusion and selection at the end of the month,” he said.)
