— Get rid of Cook County Democratic Party’s loyalty pledge. It’s anachronistic, silly and undemocratic. – EDITORIAL
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who demand blind loyalty to them and to them only. I would focus on those who destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate/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 wrongdoing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.)

— AS FEWER AND FEWER AND FEWER MEN EARN COLLEGE DEGREES: Benedictine University program aims to help create diverse women leaders – Madhu Krishnamurthy
(COMMENT: Democrats use minority female leaders to get rid of Republicans. I should write a book about what my minority female GAO superiors and supervisors did to get rid of me. They forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old. Before that, they gave me bad job assignments, unfair performance expectations, and unfair appraisals. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They did not promote me beyond GS-13. They got rid of my mentor in 1987 who had arranged my transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986. They kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. Those who hired them forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— Meleika Gardner: ‘I am still hopeful that Evanston reparations will get better for my community’
(COMMENT: For now, Democrats focus on which Blacks should get reparations and how much. Sooner or later, Democrats will focus on who should pay reparations and how much. From what I see, Democrats want Republicans to pay reparations, and the more of the following that they are, the more reparations that they want you to pay: law enforcement officer, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-veteran, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if their ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— A Waukegan history teacher takes on CRT

— Foreign-born population soars to new record under Biden – Stephen Dinan
(COMMENT: Democrats have declared a Second Civil War on Republicans. Democrats see citizens of foreign countries as being their soldiers in their army to get rid of Republicans once and for all. Democrats also see those who are the following as being their soldiers: minorities, females, younger people, LGBTQers, Trump-haters, moderates, liberals, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, RINOs, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non- German Americans, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, criminals, boozers, gamblers, stoners, etc.)

— Don’t play AOC’s game — it’s a trap. A huge portion of the energy from the Left and from the news media is policing our speech, but the speech police don’t actually believe in their own rules. The rules are not guidelines for speech but rather ad hoc traps laid for ideological opponents so as to call them sexist and avoid substantive debate on issues. – TIMOTHY P. CARNEY

— Illinois State football coach fired for taking down Black Lives Matter poster, lawsuit alleges. University says it fired him for poor performance. – Matt Lamb
(COMMENT: The Democrats who run the federal government hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and they do not promote you to GS-13 (currently $102,188) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $120,755) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $142,041) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $172,500) by age 40, it is because you have performance problems. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)

(COMMENT: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination a) to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) to curry favor with those who promote age decimation. I should write a book about the biggest age discriminators in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, etc.  I would focus on the aforesaid who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)

— Trump’s DC hotel was the ‘epicenter’ of corruption where anyone looking to ‘curry favor’ could just walk in and ‘flash cash,’ says watchdog group. – Joshua Zitser
(COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who are White, male, older, heterosexual, and/or who claim to be conservative and/or Republican, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who are the aforesaid to curry favor with those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, moderate, liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Green Independent, and/or RINO.)
