This year, the aforesaid succeeded in muzzling me and muzzling my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters by stopping me from doing that.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/nov/2/conservative-pundit-prager-says-he-feels-muzzled-b/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “If I say the ‘wrong thing’ — whatever that might be — on my Fireside Chat podcast for PragerU, I can be yanked off YouTube or Facebook. When big business and big government work together to muzzle free speech, that’s fascism,” Mr. Prager said. The nationally syndicated talk show host’s comments came as his company PragerU continues to wage a long legal battle against Google’s YouTube. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year ruled unanimously against Mr. Prager‘s claim of illegal censorship of conservatives. But Mr. Prager continues to allege that YouTube prevents PragerU from advertising videos due to unexplained violations of community guidelines, restricting other videos as likewise inappropriate and adding a disclaimer that the content may be factually incorrect. “Never in the history of this country has free speech been in such jeopardy. What’s even more shocking is that the threat is not coming directly from the government but from woke corporations,” Mr. Prager said.)

If Wheaton and the WPD “let” me raise funds from DuPage Republicans to help sponsor Wheaton’s 2022 Independence Day parade and fireworks like I did 2005-2019, will candidates on June 28, 2022 Republican primary ballots in DuPage County contribute?

In a news release, the group called “forced vaccination” a “violation of fundamental individual, economic, and religious liberties.”)

https://foxillinois.com/news/nation-world/as-california-recall-looks-likely-hard-work-begins-for-gop
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “If this is simply branded as a Republican effort the likelihood of success is very slim,” said Tim Rosales, a Republican consultant who was a senior adviser to the campaign of John Cox, a businessman who lost to Newsom in 2018 and is running again. His firm recently stopped working with Cox. Beyond Cox, the top Republicans in the race so far are former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and ex-U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, who last held office in 2005. Neither is close to a household name, though Faulconer has been barnstorming the state to raise his profile.)

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.”)

All IRP SCC votes must be weighted. Chapin Rose’s (District 15) weighted vote is 16.11%. Mike Bigger’s (District 18) weighted vote is 11.49%. Laura Pollastrini’s (District 14) weighted vote is 9.64%.

The IRP SCC is scheduled to meet this Saturday.

If the 18 IRP SCC members surveyed the Republican County Party Chairmen in their congressional district, what response do you believe they would get?

— DePaul University Black Student Union Demands Segregated ‘Safe Spaces’ – ALANA MASTRANGELO
(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, hate-filled White-hating White-haters use the Capitol Riot to promote hatred against Whites. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980.)
https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2021/02/01/depaul-u-black-student-union-demands-segregated-safe-spaces/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Students at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, are demanding segregated “safe spaces” for black students “on and off campus.” The Black Student Union at DePaul University is demanding special accommodations for black students in the wake of the Capitol Hill riot, which they refer to as a “display of white power.” The demands include new programs and racially segregated “safe spaces” both on and off-campus. “The disgusting display of white power, not to be confused with white privilege, is something we should all fear, though we know that situations and tensions in this country will always negatively affect black people, but not so much white people,” began the students in their statement. “While the attempted coup was a scary act of white power, the end of Spring Quarter 2019-2020 and the following months after that were horrifying for black students on campus,” the statement continued. “We were scared for our lives, we saw our friends get beaten and arrested, if not worse, and DePaul’s delayed response in contrast to the quickness in which they’ve replied to this week’s events is just another indicator of how little DePaul cares for their black students,” added the students, referring to previous social justice protests. “It took petitions and a campus-wide movement for DePaul to address the protests, where in that statement they wrote the late Eric Gardner’s name as ‘Eric Ferguson,’” the statement continued. “When we felt threatened by DePaul’s deal with the FOP, they tokenized a Latinx police officer as a means to silence us and show us that they’d made their decision — money is worth more than the black and brown students at DePaul.” The Student Union went on to complain that the university only let students forego their final exams last year after white students joined black students in an effort to get them canceled. “When in Spring Quarter of the last academic year black students asked for some kind of relief from one of our great stressors, final exams, it took the co-opting of white students (who, some, did so for their own benefit, going as far as calling it ‘the awesome perks of Spring Quarter’) and immense pressure from the student body for DePaul to allow a loosely worded policy,” the students said. “Even then, most black students still had finals since certain professors ignored this rule,” they added. “No black student expects it to be easy to attend a Predominantly White Institution, but blatant disrespect will not be tolerated,” the Student Union affirmed. “We demand answers.” From there, the students went on to list their demands, which included “more black therapists,” university-funded “healing and safe spaces for black students on and off campus,” diversity and inclusion training “led by black and brown people,” and “respect from the administration,” among other things. “It is imperative that spaces for black students on campus continue to receive the necessary funding and recognition as they provide safe and healing components through the presence of other students, faculty, and staff who look like us,” said the students of their demand for “safe spaces.” DePaul University did not immediately respond to Breitbart News’ request for comment on whether the school plans to meet the students’ demands for racially segregated “safe spaces” on and off-campus.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: An anti-Kinzinger rally Saturday spent more time on election losses and the party now in charge. About three hundred stood in Ottawa’s Washington Park in cold and misting conditions. It was sixteenth District Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s vote to impeach Trump that angered the La Salle County Republican Central Committee and prompted them to have the rally. Larry Kaifesh, who lost to Tammy Duckworth in a 2014 House race took a turn at the mike. Kaifesh praised Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan’s critical stance on Russian collusion, election fraud and the current impeachment. Calling Kinzinger, the “Coward of the County”, Kaifesh added this:)
