(FROM THE ARTICLE: In order to work cooperatively with several state-level Republican organizations and alongside the Illinois Congressional Committee, a Campaign Support Committee was recently established with three leaders including Montgomery Trustee Stan Bonds. Representing a portion of Will County, Bonds was recently appointed to the position by Illinois Republican Chairman Tim Schneider. The committee is formulated to work in tandem with the House Republican Organization, Senate Republican Organization, the State Republican Central Committee and the Illinois Congressional Committee by synchronizing campaign strategies and resources. Additionally, the Illinois GOP recently organized an endeavor to take a survey of statewide Republican leaders, precinct committeemen and conservative grassroots leaders. Questions centered on how the Republican Party can make improvements in the way it facilitates the GOP’s mission throughout Illinois, and the answers have been collated into a PowerPoint presentation accessible online. Constituents can view the survey results online. Will County also recently announced that its election department has an extended need for Republican election judges in the townships of Custer, Wesley, Reed, Florence and Wilmington. Election judges are compensated for their time, as well as for training.)

NORTH COOK NEWS
–New Trier schools paid nearly $90K for group to instruct teachers on ‘whiteness’  (DIERSEN: “White” is code for “Republican.”  Ever-increasingly, since the Civil War, Democrats have shouted at minorities that Whites, that is, Republicans, have caused, are causing, and will forever cause all the problems that minorities have had, are having, and will have.)
http://northcooknews.com/stories/511083558-new-trier-h-s-paid-90k-for-group-to-instruct-teachers-on-understanding-whiteness
(FROM THE ARTICLE: New Trier High School District 203 paid $88,614 to a consultancy to teach its staff why “whiteness” causes black and Hispanic students to score lower on standardized tests. North Cook News reviewed district check registers from Jan. 2011 to Jun. 2016. The Pacific Educational Group (PEG) received taxpayer dollars as part of District 203’s “professional development” budget, conducting “diversity training” and holding “seminars” and “summits” with dozens of New Trier’s teachers. One of them, New Trier teacher Pat Savage-Williams, a lead organizer of the school’s mandatory White Guilt” Day, scheduled for Feb. 28, presented at a recent event in Austin, Texas. Including reimbursed travel expenses, attendance at these events has cost New Trier taxpayers many tens of thousands of dollars more. Savage-Williams is president of the Evanston Township High School Board and has actively promoted PEG in that district as well. PEG specializes in “white privilege” training for public school teachers and administrators. Its founder, Glenn Singleton, preaches that white teachers stop black and Hispanic students from achieving because they fail to understand their cultures.)

— How Public Employee Pensions Make Income Inequality Worse – Marc Joffe  (DIERSEN: What would your superiors say that they did to fight income inequality?  My Democrat GAO superiors would stress that they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.  My aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

FEDERAL NEWS RADIO
— Civil service reform starts with performance – Jeff Neal  (DIERSEN: Measuring performance is extremely subjective. Starting in 1989, to punish me for becoming in 1988 an active member of a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, my Democrat GAO superiors used the subjectivity in their pay-for-performance (PFP) system to always rank me in the lower half of my coworkers for PFP purposes.  They were furious that I earned job-related professional certifications in 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997 and that I earned a job-related master’s degree in 1997.  During that time, my Democrat coworkers focused on helping my GAO superiors get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
