He also now has an announced 2022 primary opponent, Catalina Lauf of Woodstock, who finished third in an unsuccessful bid last year for the GOP nomination in the 14th Congressional District.)

ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— Rockford area Republicans: Rep. Adam Kinzinger is out of touch with local GOP – Corina Curry
(DIERSEN: What percent of the Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in Illinois, in your county, and in your township/ward support Kinzinger?)
https://www.rrstar.com/story/news/politics/elections/2021/02/13/rockford-area-republicans-kinzinger-out-of-touch-with-local-gop/4468976001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois congressman Adam Kinzinger may be gaining nationwide attention because of his impeachment vote and newly announced Country First movement, but some Republicans back home say this latest round of rhetoric may be causing local GOPs more harm than good. State Rep. Andrew Chesney, R-Freeport, took to Facebook Thursday to call Kinzinger “a political embarrassment,” adding that the Republican congressman’s newly formed political action committee Country First should be called “Adam First.” “I don’t think he’s in touch with what mainstream Republicans are really saying,” Chesney said. “The area that I take greatest exception to is that while he’s been on his media blitz trying to talk about conservatism, the congressman is always the last one to attend the Lincoln Day dinner and the first one to leave. “He’s listening to a D.C. crowd rather than listening to what Republicans are saying.” On a Tuesday media call, Kinzinger said he created his Country First video and website about a week ago as a way to express what he felt was happening — “kind of my mourning for the Republican Party” — and give people a place to take action if they agreed with him. “The outpouring of support has been incredible,” Kinzinger said. Kinzinger wouldn’t say how much money has been raised thus far. He said raising money wasn’t the goal. “It’s about building a movement, and my goodness it’s shown that there is a real desire out there for something different.” Rockford Republicans state Sen. Dave Syverson and state Rep. Joe Sosnowski also said that the congressman’s Country First message, which says that the “Republican party has lost its way,” doesn’t ring true with them or the Republicans they work with in Boone and Winnebago counties. “I don’t think splitting up the party is the answer,” Syverson said. “Who doesn’t want country first? That sounds almost like ‘Make America Great Again.’” Kinzinger’s actions and statements of late are actually the cause of some of the dissension in the today’s Republican party, Syverson said. Syverson said he heard from many Rock River Valley Republicans in recent weeks who are concerned over Kinzinger’s stance on the impeachment. He said he tells those voters to call Kinzinger’s office. “If you feel you disagree with him on something, let him know,” he said. Sosnowski said Kizinger’s message of focusing on what’s best for the country and de-escalating the rhetoric and political in-fighting are admirable and valuable goals. “I disagree with his approach,” Sosnowski said. “It’s a conflicting message. He’s talking about de-escalating the rhetoric yet he’s attacking fellow Republicans. … It seems contradictory.” Sosnowski also said the local Republican platform — pro-business, pro-family, less government — remains strong and stable. “I think our principles are still very much there,” he said. “They haven’t disappeared.” Back in his state house district, Chesney said he believes Kinzinger is in “a super minority” of Republicans, and that Kinzinger’s message of lack of leadership and forgotten values isn’t what Stephenson County Republicans are talking about in carpool lanes and coffee shops. “I don’t believe that’s anywhere close to reflective of where we’re at as a party,” said Chesney, who also serves as Stephenson County’s GOP chair. “I think there’s certainly an autopsy to discuss what worked and what didn’t work in Trump’s presidency, but that’s not what he’s doing. “He’s trying to implode the entire party.” Also during Tuesday’s press call, Kinzinger readily denied rumors that he might be using the impeachment as a catapult to statewide office. “People that speculate that don’t know me,” he said. “I don’t have any plans for anything higher in Illinois. … As always, I’ll put the caveat that I’m not going to rule anything out because Jan. 5 and Jan. 7 are two very different days in this world.”)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— ILGOP Statement on Push to Impeach Former President Trump
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.”)

(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who blacklist me and blacklist my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct who have lost elections, their major donors, their political consultants, their campaign managers, their campaign staff members, and their campaign volunteers. I would focus on those who I have sued.)
https://www.foxnews.com/media/study-dismissing-conservative-concerns-big-tech-bias-funded-joe-biden-mega-donor
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Poynter, which operates PolitiFact, infamously published a blacklist of 515 websites it deemed “unreliable” in 2019. The overwhelming majority were conservative, and it encouraged advertisers to not support them. Poynter ultimately apologized for the report, which was penned by an employee of the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center. Newmark has also called on Big Tech platforms to “take action” against “bad actors” online. “The social media platform[s] know who the bad actors are. They know who the foreign adversaries are, they know who their domestic allies are,” Newmark said on the Digiday podcast last year. “They should take action against all of them.” Conservatives have accused social media platforms of everything from shadow banning them to restricting free speech. Former Facebook employees admitted in 2016 to restricting news stories of interest to conservative readers from its “trending” section, and Big Tech employees have overwhelmingly favored Democrats in their political donations.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: After months of public outrage and accusations of discrimination over the disparate penalties, New Port Richey police dropped the citations against Boneta and six other Black Lives Matter demonstrators in early January.

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
— President Biden’s age shouldn’t matter. But it does, at least for me. – JERRY DAVICH
(DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 72. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes promote age discrimination. In my defense, I stress that no health problem or any other kind of problem has stopped me from putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletter each and every morning since 2004 and each and every evening since 2015. That is 7,718 newsletters. Those newsletters have included links to more than 390,590 articles and information on many upcoming events.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’ve learned that ageism and age stereotyping are very real prejudices in our society. I’m guilty of both on occasion, including my feelings about President Joe Biden. His age, 78, was one of my biggest concerns toward his candidacy for president. It had nothing to do with his physical body or his determination to serve in office, only his mind. As he begins serving his four-year term, will he have the razor-sharp mental acuity needed for such a challenging job position, long day after long day?)

— Do You Have A Plan for Your Life? – Tim Hetzner
(DIERSEN: What plans have you had? My plan for a Post Office career ended in 1969 when my Democrat Post Office superiors succeeded in forcing me to resign. My plan for a career in the automotive industry ended in 1971 when Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that Oldsmobile had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. My plan for an IRS career ended in 1974 when my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed my partial day per diem claims and it further ended in 1975 when they got rid of my mentor, in 1978 when they disallowed my education deductions, and when they made it clear that they would never promote me to GS-13. My plan for a GAO career ended in 1980 when my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO and it further ended when they kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, in 1987 when they got rid of my mentor and made it clear that they would never promote me to GS-14, when they gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals and always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and when they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

— Who are the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6? Ostensibly protesting an election they may have thought was stolen, their actions fed a larger set of goals that American militants are seizing upon to take more extreme action. – JEFF INGLIS
https://www.sunjournal.com/2021/01/24/who-are-the-rioters-who-stormed-the-capitol-on-jan-6/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is the ‘boogaloo’? “QAnon followers, the Proud Boys and the other far-right and alt-right groups that converged on Washington imagined that they were living out the great fantasy that underlies what many consider to be the bible of the white nationalism movement, a 1978 dystopian novel, ‘The Turner Diaries,’ by William Luther Pierce,” writes Jonathan D. Sarna, a scholar of anti-Semitism at Brandeis University. “The novel depicts the violent overthrow of the government of the United States, nuclear conflagration, race war and the ultimate extermination of nonwhites and ‘undesirable racial elements among the remaining White population,’” he explains. This widespread and extremely violent conflagration is often called the “boogaloo” by its adherents.)

LANCASTER ONLINE

(DIERSEN: 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump. 20,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump. In Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, and in Wheaton, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters want everyone to punish Trump a) by voting for Democrats in the April 6, 2021 election, b) by demonizing, denigrating, and condemning their Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, and c) by demonizing, denigrating, and condemning all the Republicans who represent them in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On the one hand are those who were horrified by the Jan. 6 attack and the no-holds-barred efforts to overturn Trump’s loss in the two months after the election. On the other are staunch Trump supporters who believe local GOP officials didn’t do enough to support the president’s fight. The most outspoken of those expressing these opposite views say they can no longer support the Republican Party as it exists today. As a result, the Lancaster County GOP saw hundreds of its registered voters leave the party in the first half of January. In the week of the Jan. 6 attack, 249 Lancaster County Republicans switched their registration to other parties. Of those, 146 became Democrats. These party switches continued into the following week: From Jan. 11 to Jan. 18, 87 Lancaster County Republicans switched their registration to other parties, with 76 becoming Democrats, according to county Pennsylvania Department of State data. For all of 2020, 858 GOP voters in the county switched to other parties, meaning that in just the first two week of 2021 the party lost nearly 40% of the number of voters it lost to other parties in the entire preceding year. Although the party’s margin has narrowed over the past decade, Republicans still make up a slim majority of the county’s registered voters, currently 51.4%, giving the party a firm grasp on elected offices up and down the ballot outside Lancaster city and its suburbs, blue dots on the county’s otherwise dark red political terrain.)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: From Sen. Dave Syverson (R-Rockford)…Adam is a friend of mine but in this case he made a mistake. People are very angry with him. They believe he overreacted before doing his homework. Instead of calling out those who broke the law, some who have now been proven not to be Trump supporters he joined Pelosi in a political impeachment not a legal one. Politically it becomes a problem. Locally Democrats are saying he supported Trump’s initiatives all these years and he did this just to try to get cover going into remapping. And Republicans also think the motive was political. He has a difficult road ahead.

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Biden immigration plan opposed by GOP, conservative groups. Several pro-immigration groups, meanwhile, said they would press Biden to go even further and take steps such as an immediate moratorium on deportations, detentions and new arrests. – AP
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/1/19/22239640/biden-immigration-plan-opposed-by-gop-conservative-groups
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s a mass amnesty for almost the entire population of illegal immigrants living in the United States — people who broke our laws to get here and stay here,” said Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He added, “A mass amnesty with no safeguards and no strings attached is a nonstarter.” “There are many issues I think we can work cooperatively with President-elect Biden, but a blanket amnesty for people who are here unlawfully isn’t going to be one of them,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who is often a central player in Senate immigration battles. That view was shared by Mark Krikorian, executive director of the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, which favors curbing immigration. “Past proposals at least accepted the concept of turning off the faucet and mopping up the overflow. This is nothing but mopping up and letting the faucet continue to run,” Krikorian said. The top lobbyist for NumbersUSA, which also wants to limit immigration, agreed that without changes, the measure seemed destined to receive little if any GOP support. “They’re just going straight-up amnesty,” said the lobbyist, Rosemary Jenks. She said that made the measure likely to fail in the Senate, where it would need at least 10 Republicans to join all 50 Democrats to overcome a filibuster that would kill the measure.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Thousands of protesters rushed to the … Capitol Wednesday night, forcing their way through doors, crawling through windows and jamming corridors.” That is how one newspaper described the storming of the Capitol — not the one in Washington last week, but the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., a decade ago. Back then, thousands of pro-union activists — many bused in from out of state — rampaged through the historic building in an effort to stop a vote on collective bargaining reform legislation. So, when I saw the images of a pro-Trump mob rampaging through the U.S. Capitol last week, my first thought was: What is Scott Walker thinking right now?)
