(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fed-up parents made their voices heard Wednesday night outside the Wheaton Warrenville Community Unit School District 200 meeting. As CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar reported, the parents feel that complaints from students about certain staff members are not being taken seriously. At the heart if it, parents told De Mar they feel there has been a lack of transparency from school leaders about what they call questionable teacher behavior and hiring practices within the district. The board responded Wednesday night with policy changes. The parents were armed with handwritten signs and their voices as they rallied outside the school board meeting Wednesday night.)

— The more that you promote hatred against Trump, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters promote you.
— Because Democrats and RINOs reject the Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision, younger Democrat and RINO minorities and women will continue to get preference over older Republican Whites and men, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination will continue.

— Illinois’ Latest Attack on Free Speech- Gov. Pritzker Signs “Anti-Doxing” Bill – Margaret Flavin (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that my critics/opponents will use this new law to sue me. My critics/opponents blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for all of their problems, for all of your problems, for all of my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. Anticipate/expect that the first lawsuits will be filed by Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 a) who have lost elections and b) who I have done the most to help elect and to help reelect.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pritzker has signed the Illinois Civil Liability for Doxing Act. Under the new law, Illinoisans are now at risk, under the law, for writing or sharing in any manner…..even truthful, simple facts. WirePoints reports that the new law, “lets those who are doxed bring lawsuits for damages against the doxer, subject to certain broad, vague requirements described below.” While the definition of “Doxing” most commonly used is sharing personal information about someone on the internet that makes them vulnerable to harassment, shaming or revenge. But, while the new law uses the word doxing to garner sympathy or a concerning danger on social media, the new law has an entirely different definition in the law. WirePoints reports: The law is over-broad, going far beyond the malicious conduct normally associated with doxing. To understand, imagine doing any of the following -– things you would think surely could not expose you to liability for doxing. Then we will check through what the law says is required to make you liable, which probably will surprise you. You write on social media, “Look at Sam Smith’s Facebook page. He says he couldn’t care less about the victims of the Highland Park mass murder and that the right to own assault weapons is God-given.” You send out a group email with a copy of a pamphlet from a local Communist Party chapter showing their members’ names. You publish on the internet the names of the three Illinois lawmakers with the most extreme views on abortion along with your reasons why. You write a column that you post on the internet naming certain public school teachers you think are exceptionally bad for promoting critical race theory and gender alteration for minors, along with your reasons why.)

— Trump Indicted for Citing Data From Ph.D.-Vetted Study to Challenge Election Fraud – James Agresti (COMMENT: In 2020, how many illegals in your county, in your township, in your municipality, and in your precinct used their false identifications to vote for Biden and for the rest of the Democrat candidates?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For example, the indictment accuses Trump of lying because he “said that more than 30,000 non-citizens had voted in Arizona” . . . The indictment creates the impression that Trump pulled the figure of “more than 30,000” out of thin air. In reality, it’s from a rigorously documented study that was vetted by two Ph.D. scholars, published by the research institute Just Facts, and conducted by James D. Agresti, the organization’s president and author of the present article. Reinforcing the integrity of the study, a Facebook-funded attempt by USA Today to “fact check” it fell flat. In brief, a D.C.-based grand jury indicted Trump in part for citing a factual study instead of claims from people the jury deems to be reliable. These jurors were drawn from the politically stacked jury pool of Washington, D.C. where 92% of the population voted for Joe Biden. The indictment was obtained by Jack Smith, a prosecutor who was hand-picked by the Biden administration.)

— Democrats say “Trump refusal to sign loyalty pledge puts RNC in bind.” Since 2000, for general elections, I have always helped elect those candidates on ballots in my precinct who won primary elections. But I should write a book about those Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct who lost general elections and who have blamed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their loses. Previously, they blamed their losses on what I did as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks, b) the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, c) a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, d) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster 2008-2010 and 2000-2004, e) an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member 2003-2007, and f) an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member 2001-2004.

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— Questions to ask Republican candidates: If elected, what will you do to defend and advance the personal responsibility, traditional marriage and 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?

— Democrats say that “Trump won’t profess loyalty to his party. Neither will most Americans.” (COMMENT: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. While I have always been loyal to the Republican Party platform fa) far too many Republican activists, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton are not and b) far too many Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers are not. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)
— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration, fentanyl, and pot.

— Migrants bussed from the border is not just an immigration crisis. Think public health. Asylum seekers could be bringing infectious diseases across our southern border. When they are bussed to New York and elsewhere, these diseases go with them. – Dr. Marc Siegel
— Democrats crow that “NY to spend $25M in state funds to rent homes for thousands of asylum seekers.”
— Democrats ever-increasingly use Tulsa to promote more hatred against Republicans.
— Because Trump is heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, married, non-veteran, non-poor, Protestant, German American, and his ancestors have been in America for a long time, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump haters focus on getting those who are the following to hate Trump: LGBTQ, liberal, moderate, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, minority, female, younger, unmarried, veteran, non-rich, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.
— Democrats acknowledge that “Plagued by teacher shortages, some states turn to fast-track credentialing.” The Democrats who ran GAO in 1980, IRS in 1971, and the Post Office in 1966 hired me because they could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. I had passed the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970. I had graduated from Crete-Monee High School in the upper 20% of my class with an ACT score of 24 in 1966. I had passed the postal employment examination in 1966.

— Democrats ever-increasingly use Tulsa to promote more hatred against Republicans.

— Democrats ever-increasingly crow about their success in using Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to get rid of Republicans.
— Democrats ever-increasingly use Tulsa to promote more hatred against Republicans.

— Democrats say “Ivy Degrees, Legacies, and Wealth. Where Colleges Should Go From Here.” What do Ivy League degree holders think of you? I should write a book the many adverse actions that University of Chicago degree holders have taken against me.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Although the Supreme Court ruled in June against race-based college admissions, that hardly put an end to the vigorous debate about the role that educational institutions should play in promoting social and economic mobility. On the heels of that decision, three prominent economists—Harvard University’s Raj Chetty and David J. Deming, and Brown University’s John N. Friedman—weighed in with a study that examined the determinants and consequences of admission to highly selective colleges, the eight Ivy League colleges plus the University of Chicago, Duke University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Stanford University. While less than 1% of Americans attend these schools, their graduates account disproportionately for the nation’s wealthiest citizens, scholars, and leaders, including a quarter of U.S. Senators, half of all Rhodes scholars, and three-fourths of the Supreme Court justices appointed in the past 50 years. Ivy and Ivy-plus graduates are also three times more likely to work for the nation’s most illustrious employers, Chetty, et al. found. Yet, for various reasons ranging from preferential treatment of legacies, or applicants with alumni connections, to higher-quality recommendation letters, these elite schools are dominated by students from wealthy backgrounds, rather than middle- and lower-income students with comparable standardized testing scores. The study, published by Harvard-based Opportunity Insights, sought to answer two questions: Do highly selective colleges perpetuate privilege across generations, and could these colleges diversify America’s leaders by changing their admissions policies? The answers, perhaps not surprisingly, are yes and yes.)

— Democrats and RINOs have always used Affirmative Action to get rid of Republicans who are conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about that.

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more LGBTQ.

— Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, RINOs, and other hate-filled Republican-hating Republican-haters reject the Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision.

— 11 facts about Hispanic origin groups in the U.S. – MOHAMAD MOSLIMANI, MARK HUGO LOPEZ AND LUIS NOE-BUSTAMANTE
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2022, there were 63.7 million Hispanics living in the United States. The U.S. Hispanic population has diverse origins in Latin America and Spain. Recently, the origins of U.S. Hispanics have begun to shift as patterns of immigration from Latin America change. Notably, the number of Mexican immigrants living in the U.S. has fallen as the number of immigrants who identify as Dominican, Venezuelan, Guatemalan, Honduran, Salvadoran or with another Hispanic origin has grown. . . Eight Hispanic origin groups had at least 1 million people living in the U.S. in 2021. The five largest Hispanic populations in the U.S. by origin group were Mexicans (37.2 million), Puerto Ricans (5.8), Salvadorans (2.5), Dominicans (2.4) and Cubans (2.4). The other three origin groups with populations over 1 million were Guatemalans (1.8 million), Colombians (1.4) and Hondurans (1.1).)
