— Biden signs executive orders on $15 minimum wage for federal workers, food aid increases – Josh Boak
(DIERSEN: In 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents were furious that the Post Office paid me $16.81 an hour (GS-4 Step 1) in today’s dollars. The Post Office hired me because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The job had the following requirements and I met all those requirements: high school diploma, pass an employment examination, pass a physical examination, pass a background investigation, pass a truck driving test, own a car to deliver mail from, and be available to work at least 20 hours a week.)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/14/democrats-were-occupying-capitols-before-they-were-against-it/?
(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?)

— Tell Your Representative to Cosponsor New WEP/GPO Repeal Bill – Evan Dean
(DIERSEN: My Social Security is dramatically reduced because I get a Civil Service Retirement System pension. I paid Social Security taxes while I washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, etc. 1964-1974.)
https://new.narfe.org/tell-your-representative-to-cosponsor-new-wep-gpo-repeal-bill/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 4, 2021, Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL, reintroduced the latest iteration of legislation to repeal the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO). These provisions cut the earned Social Security benefits of federal retirees and their surviving spouses. The Social Security Fairness Act of 2021, H.R. 82, would fully repeal both provisions, which, together, affect over 2.5 million people nationwide. Visit NARFE’s Legislative Action Center to urge your Representative to cosponsor this important legislation. House rules guarantee a floor vote on any legislation that garners 290 or more cosponsors; H.R. 82 currently has 20 cosponsors. Let’s build momentum to secure a vote on this critical bill in the 117th Congress. The WEP significantly reduces the Social Security benefits of government retirees who collect both a federal annuity from their government jobs and Social Security benefits from private employment. Meanwhile, the GPO prevents government retirees who receive a federal annuity from collecting full Social Security spousal benefits. In this situation, Social Security spousal or survivor benefits are reduced by two-thirds of the federal retiree’s government annuity. Often, this leaves widows and widowers with no spousal benefits at all.)

TOWNHALL
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: The hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger says “There’s a Better Alternative to Impeachment.”
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/bethbaumann/2021/01/10/why-rep-kinzinger-backs-invoking-the-25th-amendment-over-impeachment-n2582888
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL) on Sunday said he believes impeaching President Donald Trump isn’t a “smart move.” Instead, he would rather see Vice President Mike Pence invoke the 25th Amendment. “I honestly don’t think impeachment is the smart move because I think it victimizes Donald Trump again, Kinzinger explained to ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “… He stirred up a crowd. It was an executive branch attack on the legislative branch, one of the worst days in American history.” The congressman said he would “vote the right way” on whatever articles of impeachment are brought forth. The issue he has is the small amount of time left in Trump’s administration. “I would think it’s the right move if we had more than basically 10 days left of the administration,” Kinzinger said. ” … We’re not going to be able to even get through a trial so, yeah, he’ll be impeached a second time, but also exonerated, in theory, a second time. It depends on how that trial goes. If they do it once he’s out of office, all that. I think there’s a lot of ideas with censor, with preventing him from being able to run again. The reality is we just don’t have a lot of time in this administration left, which is a good thing.”)

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.)
