— Pulse of the Heartland: Centralia voters say Chicago treats southern Illinois like ‘an afterthought — ‘It’s two different worlds’ The Sun-Times visited the downstate city to see what’s on voters’ minds. Perhaps not surprisingly, COVID-19, jobs and abortion are uppermost. But like much of southern Illinois — and other downstate areas — it’s all wrapped up in a deeply ingrained feeling of being forgotten. – Tina Sfondeles (COMMENT: From what I see a) from having served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, b) from having lived in Crete 1948-1972, University Park 1972-1974, downtown Chicago 1974-1978, and Wheaton since 1978, c) from having worked for Chicago Democrats 1971-1997, and d) from having attended Chicago schools run by Democrats 1966-1968, 1971-1981, and 1992-1997, Chicago Democrats do not merely forget downstate Republicans, they despise/hate downstate Republicans, and the further downstate that Republicans live, the more that Chicago Democrats despise/hate them.)

I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and/or in Illinois.

REAL CLEAR POLITICS
— Progressive Policies Turning Chicago’s Magnificent Mile Into Murderous Mile – Thomas DeVore
— Biden Chooses New IRS Agents Over Border Security – Jenny Beth Martin (COMMENT: IRS hired me in 1971, when I was 22 years old, because IRS could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. I took the job because I was unemployed. Firestone Stores had just rudely fired me because I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Other reasons why I took the job included I was living with and helping support my mother and brother; my father had died suddenly in 1969. I started IRS with almost 3 years of full-time federal seniority that I had gained working part-time for the Post Office while I attended college. If I knew back then how strongly so many hate IRS employees so strongly, I might not have taken the job. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who hate IRS employees the most.)
