— President Trump gives command to NASCAR drivers at Daytona 500 – AP
https://abc7chicago.com/5937071/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump gave an election-year embrace to NASCAR and its fans Sunday when he became the second president ever to attend the Daytona 500. Given the honor of commanding drivers to start their engines, Trump made a grand entrance before the start of the race. He gave thousands of fans a flyover of Air Force One and then rode onto the track in the presidential motorcade as the audience roared with delight. The motorcade took roughly a quarter lap before pulling aside in an infield staging area. The president’s visit was widely welcomed by NASCAR fans. Trump 2020 flags flooded the infield, and some fans wore them as capes in the garage area.)

HERALD NEWS
— Crete pro-Trump rally organizers defend against allegations of holding anti-LGBTQ event – ALEX ORTIZ (DIERSEN: This rally was held at the northeast corner of Main & Exchange in Crete where I spent the first 5 years of my life in an apartment above my grandfather’s hardware store.)
https://www.theherald-news.com/2020/02/04/crete-pro-trump-rally-organizers-defend-against-allegations-of-holding-anti-lgbtq-event/aompcju/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The organizers of a rally in support of President Donald Trump in Crete last Saturday have been defending themselves against allegations that their event was anti-LGBTQ. Brandon Harris, an organizer from Joliet, said about 100 people attended the rally. He added that some community members made critical comments on social media about one attendee’s rainbow-colored flag which read, “Trump 2020. (Expletive) your feelings.” Harris is the executive director of Freedom Movement USA, a political action committee that has organized multiple rallies like the one in Crete around the Midwest and specifically in Will County, in the weeks since Trump was impeached. Harris said the criticism was a misunderstanding and that the attendee’s flag was not intended to be anti-LGBTQ, but simply supportive of Trump. “We support gay men and women,” he said. “We support good people who have conservative values.” Brandon Perry, 23, a Beecher native, said he was the attendee who brought the flag. He said he purchased a pro-Trump rainbow flag because he is gay. “I wanted people to see that gay people do support the president,” Perry said. Harris also said he’s worked with conservative activists who identify as LGBTQ within his organization. He said Freedom Movement USA even partnered with the Log Cabin Republicans of Illinois, a conservative group focused on LGBTQ inclusivity. Ethan Slyder, the president of the Log Cabin Republicans of Illinois, voiced support for Harris and his organization via a statement saying they’ve treated those of every race, gender, creed and sexual orientation “with the utmost respect.” Harris said he and his fellow organizers also had heard concerns from locals on social media about the rally taking place at the intersection of Main and Exchange streets near the Crete United Methodist Church. Amy Perez, a resident of nearby Steger who also helped organize the rally, said she’d seen the backlash on social media, including concerns that the rally happened near the church. She said she wanted to make sure the public understood the rally was not a church event. That was also the concern of Rev. Kristen Larsen, the lead pastor at Crete United Methodist. She said she’d heard anecdotally in the days after the rally that some community members were wondering whether it was a church event. “We didn’t know anything about this,” Larsen said. Perez added that while the reaction was not quite what she’d expected, their primary goal was to “unite the people of the town.”)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— Nimish Jani Elected to Represent IL-8 on the Illinois Republican State Central Committee
https://illinois.gop/category/news/
(PRESS RELEASE: Nimish Jani of Cook County was elected to represent the 8th Congressional District on the Illinois Republican State Central Committee. The Committee is the governing body of the Illinois Republican Party and is comprised of members elected from each of Illinois’ 18 Congressional districts. Nimish’s election followed a vacancy on the Committee after the resignation of former State Central Committeeman Ryan Higgins. Nimish was elected by a weighted vote of the Republican county chairman who represent the 8th Congressional District, which includes Cook, DuPage, and Kane counties. The weighted vote is determined by the number of Republican primary voters who cast a ballot in each county during the previous Republican Primary Election. Applications to the position were made open to the public after Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider declared the position vacant last month. The Republican county chairman in the district convened a meeting this past weekend and heard testimony from each of the two applicants to the position, followed by a question and answer session. After deliberation, the county chairman elected Nimish Jani to the Illinois Republican State Central Committee. “I’d like to thank the Republican County Chairmen of the 8th Congressional District for running a smooth and transparent process to fill the vacancy. The Chairman acted quickly and professionally to ensure the 8th congressional district’s representation on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider. “Nimish is a leader in his community and I look forward to working with him to grow our party, engage diverse communities and expand our party’s big tent. I know Nimish will be an important part of our work electing Republicans up and down the ticket in 2020.”)

— Islamist groups making inroads in local politics in America – Hesham Shehab
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/01/islamist_groups_making_inroads_in_local_politics_in_america.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Sadia Gul Covert was elected in 2018 and sworn into the office of Dupage County commissioner, she took her oath on the “Quran, Torah, and the Bible,” in what seemed at the time like a symbol of unity and moderation. But Covert’s decision to cast her lot with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) raises questions about the extent of her moderation. Covert will be a speaker at the CAIR-Chicago 2020 Banquet fundraiser in February, among other Islamist speakers. CAIR was connected to the terrorist organization Hamas during the terror-financing trial against the Holy Land Foundation (HLF). According to the Justice Department report published in 2009, “HLF became the chief fundraising arm for the Palestine Committee in the U.S. created by the Muslim Brotherhood to support Hamas.”)
