— COMMENT: Democrats say “Batavia school board candidates discuss equity, student mental health.” If I was still the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and a member of the Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee, those organizations would still be hosting candidate forums. QUESTION: What do hate-filled conservative-hating Republican leaders NOT want school board candidates to promise to do if elected? ANSWER: To slow down if not stop indoctrination, grooming, and the promotion of the Democrat, Libertarian, and Green party platforms, that is, to slow down if not stop the promotion of a) LGBTQ, sexual activity, and abortion, that is, the destruction of traditional marriage and the destruction of the traditional family; b) CRT, 1619, BLM, wokeness/wokeism, identity politics, victimhood, reparations, etc., that is, race and gender based preference giving, that is, Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination; c) mass/illegal immigration, that is, replacing those who have demographics that vote for Republicans with those who have demographics that vote for Democrats; d) abolition of the First and Second Amendments; e) unions and unionization; f) dependency on government and on charity, that is, the end of individual responsibility and liberty, that is, socialism, communism, and dictatorship; g) hatred against Republicans, and especially against Republicans who are heterosexual, conservative, White, male, older, non-poor, married, parents, gun-owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestor have been in America for a long time; h) booze, gambling, pot, and other vices; i) outlawing of gasoline-powered vehicles and lawn mowers, gas stoves, etc.; and j) the rest of the Democrat, Libertarian, and Green party platforms. Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, and RINO teachers deny that they do any the aforesaid, but not always. See what a Crete-Monee High School teacher recently said at: https://fox17.com/news/nation-world/i-am-in-fact-indoctrinating-your-children-teachers-accused-of-politicizing-classrooms She said “All you right wing conspiracy theory nut jobs who seem to think the teachers are out here just indoctrinating children into some sort of woke agenda that you can’t actually define.” and “I’m just going to come clean. I am, in fact, indoctrinating your children.”

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A year and a half after an insurgent “MAGA” movement took over the Greenville County Republican Party, the South Carolina GOP apparatus at odds with the group is planning to seize control of the county party’s upcoming local organizational efforts. The South Carolina Republican Party’s executive director, Hope Walker, said the move is rooted in concern that leadership of the county party has alienated mainline Republican voters that state leaders want to attract as they look to the 2024 election cycle. Jeff Davis, chairman of the Greenville County Republican Party, called the state’s intervention a “tyrannical” power grab using dirty tricks to find any justification to seize control. It’s the latest expansion of what has been an acrid rift along the fault line of perceived loyalty to former president Donald Trump and lingering grievances over the 2020 election. Next month, the party will conduct its precinct reorganization, a biennial effort that culminates in a county convention. It’s a vital fundraiser with pomp and circumstance, with the aim of recruiting and mobilization. “Everything will run through the state party,” Walker told The Post and Courier. “The convention is supposed to be a fun and inviting time. We want as many people as we can to get involved and not be turned off. We don’t want that to be a deterrent for someone to get involved.” The county party’s current leadership managed in summer 2021 to oust a state party-friendly governance that had been elected a few months before — an election that Davis said was proven to be rigged by “RINOs,” short for “Republicans In Name Only.” “I think they want the opportunity to cheat again,” Davis told The Post and Courier regarding the state party’s move to take over reorganization. “They did it just to try to throw a monkey wrench.” On Feb. 2, the state party’s Rules Committee voted to recommend that the State Executive Committee vote to take over Greenville County’s reorganization and convention, according to a Feb. 4 memo formalizing the recommendation and endorsed by 13 members from across the state. State party leaders accused the county party of, among other alleged violations, conducting chaotic and sometimes violent meetings without proper quorums that have created a steady member exodus. Added to that, they said, is the county party’s opposition to successful Republican candidates that back the former president. The result in part led to the creation of the Fourth District Republican Club, a group representing more-mainstream Republicans which has hosted the likes of former 4th District congressman Jim DeMint and former presidential candidate Ben Carson. In December 2021, the State Executive Committee had Davis escorted from its meeting and banned him from future attendance. However, Davis told The Post and Courier that the county party’s leadership was unaware of any rules violations and repeatedly sought clarification from the state party dating back to November, only to be stonewalled. “This was just a surprise,” Davis said. “They never told or sent any communication that we were breaking any rules.” In a Feb. 8 letter to Walker, the county party asked for specifics on how the state party would assist in the reorganization effort. It inquired about funding and providing 3,000 necessary reorganization forms that county leaders said have been distributed to other counties. Davis said he believes establishment Republicans want to enlist voices that align with like-minded GOP politicians, whereas he would attract a crowd of 3,000 with an “America first” slate. Davis pointed to the county party’s successful effort in electing its preferred members to the Greenville County School Board. “I think they’re real nervous about our convention,” Davis said, adding that the takeover also is rooted in concern that he will run for the state chairman position. Meanwhile, Walker said state leadership is forging ahead with planning Greenville County’s effort. “Right now, we are working on venue dates and locations for what the process will look like in Greenville,” Walker said. The divide began in the weeks following Trump’s November 2020 loss to President Joe Biden and unproven claims of widespread voter fraud. Powered by the conspiracy theory, more people began to attend county party meetings in greater numbers, facilitated by a group Davis and others started, MySCGOP. It happened just as the party conducted that year’s reorganization. In April 2021, a three-person slate of candidates backed by traditional party leaders was elected to lead the county apparatus, a vote conducted virtually because of the pandemic and before widespread distribution of vaccines. A faction billing itself as the “MAGA slate” objected and claimed a rigged process. That group met in a Greenville hotel ballroom that day and submitted paper ballots. The MAGA slate lost in a close race, but come summer the insurgent group applied enough pressure to prompt the leadership’s resignations. That’s when Davis came into power, along with state executive committeeman Pressley Stutts, who a month later died due to COVID-19. Throughout the course of the year, the county party led protests against vaccine mandates, acceptance of election results, detainment of some of those accused of participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and a host of other far-right issues. The county party at one point changed the party logo to feature Trump’s signature swooping, orange combover. It isn’t the only intraparty conflagration in South Carolina. In September, five members of the Horry County Republican Party abruptly resigned. Billing themselves as “America First Patriots” — mostly aligning with the beliefs of the current Greenville County party leadership — the Horry County leaders cited harassment and “backhanded” political tactics by the state party to undermine them. The resignations came after a September State Executive Committee meeting, which voted to condemn and remove perks from the members of the committee who, using false allegations, attempted to stall the reconvening of the 2021 State Republican Convention.)

— The Climate Crusaders Are Coming for Electric Cars Too. A new report makes clear the ultimate goal: tiny, uncomfortable apartments and bicycles for all. – Allysia Finley (COMMENT: I have owned gasoline-powers cars since I was 16 in 1964. I should write a book about the ever-increasingly hatred that Democrats promote against non-elect vehicles and their owners, and especially against those who recently bought gasoline-powered vehicles. I recently bought a used 2018 Chevrolet Cruze LT daily driver, a new 2021 Chevrolet Malibu Premier in 2021, a new 2019 Ford Escape Titanium in 2019, a new 2016 Ford Mustang in 2016, a new 2013 Dodge Charger R/T in 2012, a used 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier LS in 2010, a new 2005 Chevrolet Corvette in 2005, a new 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX in 1995, and a new 1972 Corvette in 1971. I continue to own all of the aforesaid except the Cavalier which I traded-in for the Cruze. Ever-increasingly, a major factor that motivated me to buy the aforesaid vehicles is that more and more and more gasoline-powered makes and models are being discontinued.)
— Here Comes the 60-Year Career. As people live longer, healthier lives, the traditional 40-year career will become a thing of the past. But that’s going to require a new mind-set—and a lot more planning. – Carol Hymowitz (COMMENT: How long is/was your career? Government is nasty/vicious. Politics is nasty/vicious. My Democrat GAO superiors ended my almost 18-year career with GAO in 1997 when was I was 49 years old when they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Constructively, that rendered me unemployable and rendered my GAO work experience worthless, my six job-related professional certifications worthless, my job-related professional license worthless, and my three job-related master’s degrees worthless. But even worse than that, it gave my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes tremendous ammunition to use against me. For example, to get the Illinois Center Right Coalition to censure me for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters at its annual convention in Wheaton in 2006, they hinted/implied/argued/shouted that GAO forced me to retire because I was an extremely bad person. They completely rejected that my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discriminations, and retaliation. SEE: https://gopillinois.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DiersenGAOFifthAmendedComplaint.pdf I should write a book about the aforesaid and about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. Better yet, I should sue them.)

I would focus on RINO elected officials and on RINO conservative leaders who have taken and/or who are taking the most/biggest adverse actions against me. I would focus on RINO elected officials and on RINO conservative leaders who have done and/or are doing the most to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and to stop everyone from reading those newsletters.)
