EFFINGHAM DAILY NEWS
— Illinois GOP leadership needs vision, tradition – Darren Bailey
(DIERSEN: Who wants to be the next Illinois Republican Party (IRP) chairman? I should write a book about IRP chairmen since 2002 — Judy Baar Topinka (2002–2005), Andrew McKenna (2005–2009), Pat Brady (2009–2013), Jack Dorgan (2013–2014), and Tim Schneider (2014–present). I would focus on how the aforesaid got elected. I would focus on how they have treated Republicans like me who support the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. In 2005, as an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, I organized a candidate forum in Springfield the evening before the day that the IRP State Central Committee elected McKenna. Attendees included candidates McKenna, Steve McGlynn, John Cox, and Jim Nalepa.)

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.”)

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jan/4/trump-still-selling-ice-cream-in-a-desert-of-elect/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now we are told that the once-reliably Republican state of Georgia has gone wobbly. The “demographics,” all the experts tell us, have changed. The “demographics?” Seriously? Only in Washington is racial profiling not only accepted, but expected and enthusiastically encouraged. As with many things, this is why politicians in Washington spend so much time denouncing racial profiling in all the lower forms of American human existence. They don’t like the competition. Among the many wonderful things about Mr. Trump is that he does not see voters based on the color of their skin or their sex or any of the other categories of “demographics” that all the political experts are so deathlessly obsessed with around here. Mr. Trump understands we are all one demographic. We are Americans.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The world’s largest indoor automobile mural is located in the basement garage beneath one the buildings in the Iron Gate Motor Condos in Naperville. The 10,000-square-foot mural titled “Auto-mobility On the Shoulders of Giants” not only is a brief journey through history but depicts the iconic cars of the world and the men who built them. The idea for the grand mural came from Iron Gate developer and founder Tom Burgess, who wanted something to fill the empty concrete walls in the storage garage under the 5 O’Clock Tower, aptly named because the clock always is set to 5 o’clock. Instead of dull gray, Burgess said he wanted to create a colorful and lasting piece for future owners to understand the passion behind the construction of Iron Gate.)

POLITICO
— Anti-Facebook agitators see their moment under Biden. Joe Biden has said he’s no fan of Facebook. Now he has an opportunity to show it as he assumes landmark policy and legal battles against the company. – STEVEN OVERLY
(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs work together to get Facebook to do more to get rid of those who voted for Trump once and for all. 2,446,891 voted for Trump in Illinois. 193,611 voted for Trump in DuPage County. 20,080 voted for Trump in Milton Township. 157 voted for Trump in my precinct.)
https://www.politico.com/news/2020/12/26/anti-facebook-agitators-biden-era-450347
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump era opened the floodgates for Facebook detractors, who accused the world’s largest social network of silencing conservatives on one side, and abetting disinformation about the U.S. election on the other. Now, under Biden, the company’s critics see a prime opportunity to finally tame Facebook — for the sake of election integrity, privacy and fair play in the digital era. Democrats widely accuse Facebook leaders of permitting misinformation to appease Trump and his Republican allies. Biden’s campaign representatives have also lambasted Facebook for choosing not to remove Trump’s misleading claims from their pages and for broadly halting political advertising in the days immediately before and after the Nov. 3 election.)

— Why We Can’t Stop Longing for the Good Old Days. Neurology and nostalgia help explain why people have always worried that the world is going downhill. – Johan Norberg
(DIERSEN: When were your Good Old Days? My Good Old Days include 1972, 1973, and 1974 when my GAO mentor promoted me to GS-9 (currently $58,672/year), GS-11 (currently $70,987/year), and GS-12 (currently $85,084/year). But then, my Democrat IRS superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there. My Good Old Days include 1986, 1987, and 1988 when my GAO mentor got me assigned to audits of IRS and promoted me to GS-13 (currently $101,176/year). But then, my Democrat GAO superiors got rid of my mentor and everything went downhill from there.

TALLAHASSEE DEMOCRAT
— Look to the future with healthy optimism – Mark A. Mahoney
(DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. What makes it hard for you to be optimistic about the future? For me, it is the ever-increasing success that Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents and Independent plants, and RINOs are having in driving Republicans out of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. The more planks in the Republican Party platform that you support, the harder that they work to drive you out. The more of the following that you are, the harder that they work to drive you out: Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, non-veteran, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— A Closer Look at the ‘Good Old Days’ – Kevin Williams
(DIERSEN: According to Democrats, the Good Old Days were good only for White males. I should write a book about minorities and females who IRS and GAO promoted over me who had less work experience, less education, and/or fewer professional certifications/licenses than I had. In 1971, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that Oldsmobile had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That directly resulted in a) Firestone Stores firing me and b) my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

— What Happens When Legislators Speak Out Against Speaker Madigan? – Amanda Vinicky
https://news.wttw.com/2020/12/09/what-happens-when-legislators-speak-out-against-speaker-madigan
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ramifications, she said, that included getting cut off from traditional large Democratic donors for fundraising and being sent a novice campaign worker from the Democratic Party of Illinois versus a seasoned staffer. She said DPI, which Madigan also controls, didn’t have conversations with her about these changes. And she said DPI slow-walked polling in her district and a refusal by the party to allow her to ask a poll question about Madigan. “It’s a very fine line, right? Because you don’t want anything to look retaliatory,” she said. She said she ended up doing her own poll, outside of DPI. It showed that Madigan was less popular in her west suburban district than President Donald Trump. Costa Howard said she did not take money directly from Madigan, though as a Democrat she did accept funding from Democratic committees under his auspices.)
