Under the Democrats and under the RINOs, all anyone in the world needs to do to come into America “legally” or to stay in America “legally” is to claim asylum. The Democrat news media ever-increasingly a) paints asylum seekers as being GOD-like and b) paints the Republican battle against illegal immigration as being lost forever. That is, that soon, if not already, Democrat leaders will have enough illegals using their false identifications to vote for Democrats that no Republican will ever win an election again and RINO leaders will have all the cheap labor that they can use. Anticipate/expect that if Democrat and RINO leaders conclude that it is necessary, they will ever-increasingly move illegals to battleground/swing states so that they can vote for Biden and for the rest of the Democrats on the ballot.

— FRONT PAGE: Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters ever-increasingly hint/imply/argue/shout that Trump and his supporters will subvert the November 5, 2024 election. But what about the more and more and more millions of illegals in America? They are all under ever-increasing pressure to use their false identifications to vote for Biden, especially in battleground/swing states.
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: With deadline looming, is public pension funding heading in the right direction? – Jake Griffin (COMMENT: Are you earning credits toward a pension? Are you getting a pension? I started earning credits toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension when I was 18 in 1966. I became eligible to take early retirement in when I was 45 in 1993. I have been getting a COLA-adjusted CSRS pension (currently $65,160/year) since I was 49 in 1997. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always been furious about the aforesaid. In my defense, I worked for GAO for almost 18 years (1980-1997), for IRS for almost 9 years (1971-1980), and for the Post Office for almost 3 years (1966-1969). I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree in 1970 (NIU-management) and job-related master’s degrees in 1976 (Loyola-business), 1980 (DePaul-accounting), and 1997 (IIT-finance). I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979 (accounting), 1981 (internal auditing), 1990 (fraud examination), 1994 (government financial management), 1996 (financial services auditing), and 1997 (forensic accounting). I earned a job-related profession license (CPA) in 1981. If my Democrat GAO superiors had not forced me to take their early retirement “offer,” I might still be paying 7% of my federal salary into the CSRS instead of drawing a pension from it.)

— Only 3.4% of U.S. journalists are Republicans – Kerry Picket (COMMENT: As your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, I have been a member of that 3.4% since 2000. According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, you cannot be both a journalist and a Republican.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The number of full-time American journalists who say they’re Republicans plummeted in the past decade, while Democrats in that profession rose. According to a new survey titled “The American Journalist Under Attack,” released by Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Republicans in the industry fell from 18% in 2002 and 7.1% in 2013 to 3.4% in 2022. That’s significantly lower than the number of American adults who say they’re Republicans (26%), according to a 2022 ABC News/Washington Post poll. Democrats in the news industry saw their ranks swell by eight percentage points in 2022 to 36%. The number is nine percentage points higher than the overall Democrat population of 27%, according to the ABC News/Washington Post poll. The new survey notes that the figure is the third-highest percentage of journalists identifying as Democrats since 1971. The study included other findings that covered various topics in the journalism workplace, including educational levels, workplace satisfaction, shrinking newsrooms, median ages of reporters, women, minorities, sought-after training and social media. According to the survey, 22% of the respondents said journalism in the U.S. was headed in the right direction, while 60.1% said otherwise. Similar numbers of respondents said the same a decade ago. When asked about the “most important problem facing journalism today,” the journalists mentioned these issues most often: declining public trust in the news media, shrinking local and community news coverage, perceived bias and opinion journalism, fake news and disrupted business models. This survey resumes the series of national studies of U.S. journalists launched in 1971 by sociologist John Johnstone. It continued in 1982, 1992, 2002 and 2013 by David Weaver, Cleve Wilhoit and their colleagues at Indiana University. The new study was based on an online survey with 1,600 U.S. journalists and conducted in early 2022.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Barbie phenomenon is joined by the female pop star Taylor Swift, whose record-setting concert tour caused an unprecedented meltdown at Ticketmaster. Now the film version has broken the box office record for a concert movie, drawing mostly young women to theaters where they dance on chairs and sing off-key rather than merely watching. Taylor Swift, herself childless and nearly 34 years old, was asked when she turned 30 whether she wants to have children. She curtly replied, “I don’t really think men are asked that question when they turn 30, so I’m not going to answer that now.” For the most part, Swifties have not been attending these concerts on dates with young men. An estimated 90% of these concert fans are women, an imbalance so severe that it has caused havoc with the availability of restrooms at performance venues. The messaging from the media couldn’t be any clearer. They are telling our young women that the path to happiness requires childlessness. This messaging isn’t new. Phyllis Schlafly was exposing these false promises all the way back when Betty Friedan was calling the home a “comfortable concentration camp” back in the 1960s. However, the new packaging on the same old lie shouldn’t be ignored today. We must help our daughters to see that for the vast majority of women, true and lasting fulfillment will be found in marriage and motherhood.)

— You’re never too old to pivot in your career. – Ashton Jackson (COMMENT: Have you pivoted in your career? I did when I was 31 in 1980 when I transferred from IRS to GAO. GAO audits IRS. But I soon found out that my Democrat GAO superiors saw me as being far too old to have a successful GAO career. To make that happen, they forced me to take a $22,996/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10 to transfer and they ignored, dismissed, and/or belittled the fact that I a) had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $97,079-$110,020/year, b) had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, c) had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, e) had passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, f) had become a licensed CPA in 1981, g) had become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Government Financial Manager in 1994, Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997, and h) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997. They gave me bad job assignments and unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They assigned me to supervise their most problematic employees. They delayed my promotions to GS-11, 12, and 13 and never promoted me to GS-14. They kept me off audits of IRS except 1986-1988. They forced the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged for my transfer, who had finally been able to assign me to audits of IRS and promote me to GS-13 in 1986. They always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes. They forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997. They never would have done the aforesaid if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran. I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

— Affirmative Action and DEI are zero-sum-games. To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group.

Of course, I am paywalled by those who 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.
