From what I see, first, they will focus on destroying Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members who do not hate Trump. They will focus on those IRP SCC members who have the heaviest weighted vote. Then, second, the officers of Republican county party organizations who do not hate Trump. They will focus on officers in counties that have the most Republican voters. Then, third, the officers of Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump. The will focus on officers in townships/wards that have the most Republican voters. Then, fourth, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains who do not hate Trump. They will focus on Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in precincts that have the most Republican voters. But beyond the aforesaid, of course, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters will focus on destroying those Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, reporters, journalists, etc. who have the greatest impact in Illinois. Of course, I will report everything that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters do a) to destroy me, b) to destroy my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters , and c) to destroy those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.

— The U.S. Postal Service desperately needs a few good men and women. Maybe you? The post office’s ongoing delivery problems could open a window of opportunity for people now that it’s looking to hire. Here’s what you need to know. – Mary Mitchell
(DIERSEN: The Post Office hired me in 1966 when I was 18 years old because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2021/4/30/22412910/postal-service-mail-jobs
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The United States Postal Service says it’s one of the “leading employers of minorities and women. Minorities comprise 39% and women 40% of the workforce, 21% of employees are African-American; 8% are Hispanic; 8% are Asian-American/Pacific Islander, and 0.67% are American Indian or Alaska Native.” . . . So here is where the community could make a difference — if you’ve got the right stuff. The Postal Service is hiring. “This is an opportunity for those who want to work for the post office because they are hiring up to 500 city letter carriers, and these are jobs that can change lives,” Julion says. The union representative tells potential employees these jobs could help them become homeowners and be able to afford that new automobile. “These are good union jobs,” he says. Prospective mail carriers will have to pass drug tests and background checks and have a clean driving record for at least two years. “The post office has been posting jobs like mad,” Julion says. “With people retiring, there is going to be a constant flow of jobs.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Kinzinger: The tyranny of the reasonable – David Hale
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/05/the_tyranny_of_the_reasonable.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The tyranny of the reasonable is: if you’re not “reasonable,” you don’t get a voice, and you don’t count. This is perfectly expressed in the 16th District Republican congressman, Adam Kinzinger. The dashing young Kinzinger with steely eyes and square jaw and canned, even, toned verbal delivery comes across as erudite, serious, and reasonable — a political figure who just “wants what’s best for everybody.” But nothing is farther from the truth. His cooperation with the left has for the past decade chipped away at American freedom through his decisions on Capitol Hill and eroded our liberties a bite at a time. Kinzinger cooperates and coordinates with members of the Democrat Party who have a deep allegiance to extremist ideas of open borders, redistribution of labor and wealth in the form of money from American’s paychecks, division through racial unrest and strife, and transgender tyranny in our schools and even in school bathrooms. Despite this extensive cooperation with the party of “Marx in America,” he is considered a reasonable, thoughtful political figure. So much easier to gulp down lies when told to us through a smile with even, serious tones. People like Kinzinger delivering their message do not seem like radicals or extremists. They seem reasonable. Kinzinger has learned this tactic and executed this persona with perfection, yet his allegiances are anything but reasonable. His allegiances are radical and extreme and part of what is transforming America into a debt-laden, morally bankrupt, tyrannical dictatorship that is closing the noose of tyranny around our freedoms and liberties. People who consider themselves reasonable consider Kinzinger the same, yet they don’t look deeper than Kinzinger’s surface persona. Beneath this reasonable persona is a man who has created and led our nation into a worse condition than it has ever been — deeper in debt, morally bankrupt, crime-ridden, with joblessness, rioting, racial division, and a whole host of social and economic problems.)

Most commonly, they reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender preference giving) planks.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The US Department of Education suspended a decision that found racial “affinity groups” discriminated against students and staff, The Post has learned. The goal of the programs — used by the New York City public school system and other school districts — is to separate students and staff by racial groups in order to help address discrimination and “white privilege.” But the practice of separating schools into racial groups is discriminatory, a determination obtained by the Post found. The findings — reached during the waning days of former President Trump’s time in office in early January — were in response to a complaint about a Chicago-area school district’s “racial equity” training programs and lesson plans.)

(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters want those who are the following to hate themselves: law enforcement officers, veterans, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/02/report-coca-cola-forcing-employees-to-take-online-course-to-learn-to-be-less-white/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Coca-Cola Company is barreling full-steam ahead in the hopes of being crowned the most wokest woke company of uber-woke 2021. Last month, Professor Jacobson wrote about “Coca-Cola Impos[ing] Racial Quotas On Outside Counsel Staffing. This month, we learn that Coca-Cola is forcing its employees to attend a divisive, destructive online course designed to make them hate themselves because of the color of their skin. Making white people hate themselves for the color of their skin is, of course, the goal of all this ridiculous, flagrantly racist ‘anti-racist’ training’ that has taken over our universities, our government, and our major (and not so major) businesses and corporations. And Coca-Cola is apparently fully onboard with dehumanizing their staff, with instilling in them a sense of self-hatred and a paranoid, judgmental loathing of their entire race. What says stellar employee more than a suicidal, soul-destroyed, self- and race-hater who is required to be “less white”? This is a monstrous evil inflicted on people who have done nothing wrong, who are good employees, and who have committed no crime . . . beyond the new ‘crime’ of being born white. Being white is bad, so be “less white,” goes the hate yourself racist orthodoxy, and implicit in this, is the unspoken, but deeply understood, threat: if you want to keep your job. This is a genuinely evil ideology, and people are outraged. . .Tearing people down, filling them with self-doubt and self-hate, is now how you build an “inclusive workplace,” according to Coca-Cola. Targeting white people for reeducation about their ‘whiteness’ is vile, racist, and unconscionable. That said, it is—objectively speaking—a great way to manufacture a compliant and complacent populace. If you hate yourself and your entire race, you are not going to fight back. Why would you? You have learned that you are evil because of your skin color, you have been taught to recognize your evil as manifested in your skin color, and you have been coerced into shouting your evil whiteness from the rooftops. You then feel that you deserve whatever horrors the left unleashes on you because, after all, you were born white. Who needs reeducation camps when the job is being done in our K-12 schools, universities, cultural output, government, and businesses? Reject it. Reject it because it flies in the face of your religious beliefs, because it does not comport with your understanding of America, because it does not make sense to hate yourself for something beyond your control, because it is unjust. Reject it because it is destructive, divisive, and at rock bottom, purely evil.)

SUBURBAN CHICAGOLAND
— The courage of standing up for our Police. A student athlete at the University of Illinois stood tall and proud recently while all of her teammates and coaches took a knee during the singing of the National Anthem. That student, who I know but won’t identify, has true courage and is the symbol of what true justice is in the fight against racism and bigotry. Fighting crime is fighting racism. – Ray Hanania
https://suburbanchicagoland.com/2020/12/25/the-courage-of-standing-up-for-our-police/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A friend recently sent me a photo of a young female athlete at a basketball game at the University of Illinois standing up during the playing of the National Anthem while all of her teammates were on one knee. Although bending one knee is being defended as a symbol of protesting against “police violence,” it really has become more than that symbolizing extremist agendas including “defunding” the police. In the photo, this one junior is standing with her hand on her heart while her teammates and coaches all take one knee before the start of the game. I know who the girl is, but I won’t identify her because she could easily become the target of a growing movement of fanaticism that opposes the Police.)
