— Illinois NAACP president under fire for calling migrants ‘savages’ during Zoom meeting – Craig Wall
— Giuliani trial: Moss says she feared for her life over fraud lies in defamation case – AP (COMMENT: Giuliani blamed Moss for Trump losing Georgia in 2020. My critics/opponents blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for losses suffered by their candidates on ballots in my precinct. More than just blame me, they ended my service as a) the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks in 2021, b) the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois in 2012, c) the Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster in 2010 and 2004, and d) an officer of the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) in 2007. They almost got ICRC to censure me for my newsletters in 2006.)
— Democrats promote their civil fraud trial against Trump. Government is nasty/vicious. Politics is nasty/vicious. Democrats are nasty/vicious. While I worked for the Democrats who ran the Post Office, they promoted their disallowance of my sick leave request in 1968 and 1969 and b) their forcing me to resign in 1969. While I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS, they promoted a) their disallowance my travel vouchers in 1974 and my education deductions in 1978 and b) their not promoting to GS-13 after I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 and passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. GAO audits IRS. While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO, they promoted a) their forcing me to take a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, b) their keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, c) their delaying my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13 and never promoting me to GS-14, d) their always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay for performance purposes, and e) their forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 and giving my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate. My Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. My critics/opponents have absolutely no problem with what my Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors did to me, in fact, they applaud it.

— Biden seeks to preempt GOP attempts to slash federal workforce with new proposal – Kevin Liptak (COMMENT: I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS 1971-1980 and who ran GAO 1980-1997. While I worked for GAO, Republicans slashed GAO’s workforce by 3,000, from over 6,000 to under 3,000. My Democrat GAO superiors punished me viciously for that. They forced me to take a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. They delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13 and never promoting me to GS-14. They always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay for performance purposes. They forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 and gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate.)

— Some employers are giving workers advance notice of their layoffs so they can look for a new job. – Te-Ping Chen and Lindsay Ellis (COMMENT: My Democrat GAO superiors falsely led me to believe that they were going to let me work until I was eligible for regular retirement when I would be 55 in 2003. But starting at the end of August in 1997, they made it all too clear that if I did not take their early retirement “offer” which expired at the end of September, my next 6 years would be a living hell.)

— Democrat and RINO employers ever-increasingly use DEI to not hire Republicans, to not retain Republicans, to not promote Republicans, and to get rid of Republicans.

— Religious Diversity – Casey Martinez (COMMENT: Virtually none of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Protestant while I worked for GAO 1980-1997, IRS 1971-1980, Firestone Stores 1970-1972, and Post Office 1966-1969 and very few were Republican, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time. Virtually all of them were Democrat and many of them and times most of them were minority, female, veteran, and/or younger than me.)

— Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs want Republican candidates to lose. They want the Republican Party to dump its platform and become Democrat-lite, Libertarian-lite, Green-lite, Independent-lite, and/or RINO. They want the Republican Party to dump voters who are heterosexual, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, married, parents, gun-owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and those whose ancestor have been in America for a long time.

— Trump allies want federal civil servants to serve the president, not the agency – H.J. Mai and Steve Inskeep (COMMENT: My critics/opponents destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate or dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.)

— Democrat leaders and RINO leaders ever-increasingly crow about their success in replacing voters who have demographics that vote for Republicans with voters who have demographics that vote for Democrats and RINOs. Ever-increasingly Democrat leaders and RINO leaders replace those who are heterosexual, conservative, White, male, older, non-poor, Protestant, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time with those who are LGBTQ, liberal, minority, female, younger, poor, non-Protestant, non-German American, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.

— My ancestors would not have immigrated to America during the 1840s and 1850s from what is now Germany if America had not been a Christian nation. On my father’s side, they sent all their children to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete.

— While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997, they took the following adverse actions against me, but according to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, they were not adverse actions: a) they force me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old and they gave my job and my preferred corner office to my Black subordinate, b) they always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay for performance purposes, c) they delayed my promotions to GS-11, GS-12, and GS-13 and never promoting me to GS-14, d) they kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and e) they forced me to take a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They took the aforesaid adverse actions against me because I complained about patronage, political affiliation discrimination, and age discrimination. Starting in 1988, they took more adverse actions against me because I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.

— Other recently introduced bills in Congress include: HR-6581, to require that federal employees and others alleging age discrimination need to prove only that age was among the reasons an employer took an adverse action against them, overturning a court decision requiring them to prove that the employer would not have taken the action except for discriminatory reasons.

— Vivek Ramaswamy wants term limits for federal employees – TOM SHOOP (COMMENT: Why doesn’t Ramaswamy rail against discrimination against federal employees who are Republican and White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time?)
