KANE COUNTY CONNECTS
— EARLY VOTING FOR MARCH PRIMARY STARTS FEB. 6 IN KANE COUNTY
— Trump impeachment backfires on Democrats, and Nancy Pelosi has a meltdown – John Kass
— Groups protest Trump’s acquittal at Chicago’s Federal Plaza – MORGAN GREENE
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Representatives of groups including Common Cause, Arab American Family Services and the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights shared their dismay at the acquittal and the administration’s policies, and urged the crowd to focus on next steps. Among the speakers was ACLU of Illinois communications director Ed Yohnka.)
— Meijer opposition could block proposed site for Aurora marijuana dispensary on Route 59 – STEVE LORD and SARAH FREISHTAT
— CPS inspector general says Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked him to resign – Hannah Leone (DIERSEN: If I had taped what my Democrat GAO superiors said to me to force me to take their early retirement “offer,” I would have won Diersen v. GAO.)
— Chicago firefighters protest promotion exam ‘debacle’: ‘We just want a fair shake’ – PETER NICKEAS (DIERSEN: Passing the CPA examination used to be required to get promoted at IRS and GAO, but that was dropped because it frustrated meeting Affirmative Action quotas, goals, and targets.)
— After the Iowa caucuses disaster, let’s bring back the smoke-filled room – Steve Chapman
— Snubbing handshakes, as Trump did with Pelosi at State of the Union, more common as norms fall away – Jessica Villagomez (DIERSEN: Do you refuse to shake the hands of those who focus on destroying you? Should I refuse to shake the hands of those who focus on destroying me? I should write a book about those who focus on destroying me. Maybe I should sue them. Better yet, I should destroy them.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Trump-haters promote hatred against not only Trump, but against those who share his demographics including: Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.
— FRONT PAGE WITH COLOR PICTURE: DIERSEN HEADLINE: What do you say to those who facilitate, that is, who encourage drug abuse?
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs demonize, denigrate, and condemn the traditional family.
— Fact-check: Ives a few months off in her claim about Casten’s call for Trump’s impeachment Casten did not announce his support for launching an impeachment inquiry until two months after Mueller’s report was made public. And, even then, he did not say he would vote yes on articles of impeachment until December. – BGA (DIERSEN: QUESTION: What qualifications do I have to be a fact checker? ANSWER: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year, I increasingly worked as a referencer, that is, as a fact checker. That work required assuring the accuracy and support for each and every word, number, table, graph, chart, conclusion, opinion, and recommendation in GAO reports. I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. My other fact checking qualifications include my becoming a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979.)
HERALD & REVIEW
— Macon County GOP chairman: Impeachment ‘a sham’ – Analisa Trofimuk
PEORIA JOURNAL STAR
— Illinois should lead off presidential primaries – Editorial (DIERSEN: Pritzker argues that Illinois is “diverse.” I disagree. Based on how Illinois’ citizens have voted, Illinois is overwhelmingly anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
— Democrats face setbacks as Trump celebrates victories in pivotal week of 2020 race – Stephen Loiaconi
— Stories Of The Enslaved In Illinois – TARA MCCLELLAN MCANDREW (DIERSEN: When did your ancestors come to Illinois? Mine came to Chicago in 1844. Sooner or later, if not already, the longer that your ancestors have been in Illinois, the more that Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs will demand that you pay more reparations, that is, that you pay more of the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion. Further, the more of the following that you are, that more reparations that they will demand you to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, and draft avoider.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Contrary to what we’ve been told and taught, Illinois was not a free state. Slavery and indentured servitude —slavery by another name — were legal here from the early 1700s until 1863. Blacks (and Native Americans early on) were bought, sold, auctioned, kidnapped, indentured, punished, controlled, gifted and taxed as property in the Land of Lincoln.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, Democrats promote hatred of law enforcement.
— Naperville’s Pulse in Springfield – Another Task Force, Another Failure – Grant Wehrli
— Town Hall – impact of legalization of recreational marijuana – Gina Jones
— Business Roundtable: Cannabis in the Workplace – Northbrook Chamber of Commerce’s avatar (DIERSEN: I would not want to work for, work with, or supervise anyone who uses pot. I should write a book about my Democrat superiors and supervisors in the federal government who were heavy drinkers. They favored their subordinates who drank with them and used Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, and up-or-out to destroy those like me who failed/refused to drink with them.)
ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION
— The Boorish Women of the Democratic Party – Laurie Higgins
— Mark Levin: Pelosi’s speech shredding displays Dems’ mutation into ‘Hate America First Party’ – Douglas Ernst
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Pot pushers push pot.
— Can Mitt Romney actually be expelled from the Republican Party? – Tyler Olson (DIERSEN: In Illinois, the more planks in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform that you support, the more likely that Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO party leaders will expel you.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The U.S. political system may be run by two major parties, but compared with other countries, those parties have very little control over the positions espoused and votes cast by their members. The Republican National Committee has nothing in its rules about expelling an individual member from the party. In fact, while it is active as a campaign arm of the GOP and provides guidance to state parties and individual members on the general direction of the party, the RNC typically only has full control over the national party convention it hosts every four years. Most of its rules have to do with filling various party offices, delegate selection for the national convention and the procedure by which its convention runs. The only rule the RNC has regarding support for individual candidates bans it from supporting candidates in contested primaries and stipulates that someone running for another party’s nomination cannot be recognized as the GOP nominee. The Utah Republican Party does have a provision for expelling candidates from party membership, but it would not apply to Romney. A rule in the Utah GOP’s by-laws mandates that candidates running for office as a Republican have to sign an agreement saying they support the state party’s platform with a list of any platform stances they disagree with. Candidates who do not sign the agreement “will automatically forfeit their Party membership two days following the State designated candidate filing-period deadline.”)
— Nancy hates all MAGA Americans, not just Donald Trump (DIERSEN: Who in Illinois, in your county, in your township, in your municipality, and in your municipal district demonstrates their hatred against Trump and against his supporters the most?)
— Acquitted for Life: Democrats left in impeachment rubble as Trump’s approval ratings rise
— Media blame Iowa caucus fiasco on state’s ‘whiteness’; Trump shines in State of the Union
— Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot calls President Trump’s State of the Union address ‘offensive’ (DIERSEN: What will Lightfoot do to drive out of Chicago all individuals, all organizations, and all companies that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)
— Pelosi’s hissy-fit and the advances of feminism – Diana Mary Sitek
— Republicans take action against Nancy Pelosi for tearing up speech at State of the Union “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” – Carlos Garcia (DIERSEN: Who has torn up your speeches, constructively, if not literally? I should write a book about those who have constructively torn up my speeches.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) tweeted that he had filed an ethics complaint against the Democratic leader. “Her conduct was beneath the dignity of the House, and a potential violation of law (18 USC 2071),” he tweeted. “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” And he wasn’t the only one. Rep. Kay Granger (R-Tex.) also introduced a resolution criticizing Pelosi for her act. “Speaker Pelosi’s actions last night were appalling and shameful,” read a statement from Granger. “Regardless of her personal feelings, she had a responsibility to conduct herself with civility as the presiding officer representing the House of Representatives. She is not the Speaker of the Democrats, but of the People’s House.” Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) tweeted that he introduced a resolution to censure Pelosi.)
— Despite Voters’ Attitude Shift, Texas GOP Bars Gay Republican Group From Convention – Tristan Justice (DIERSEN: Those who promote LGBTQ activity focus on destroying individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that do not promote LGBTQ activity.)
— Iowa caucuses stoke Democratic anxiety – NIALL STANAGE
— Gingrich calls on Pelosi to be censured: ‘Disgusted’ by ‘viciously partisan action’ – JOE CONCHA
— Pelosi-Trump relationship takes turn for the terrible – SCOTT WONG AND CRISTINA MARCOS
— Trump hits Romney, Pelosi for invoking religion during impeachment – BRETT SAMUELS (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters hint/imply/argue/shout that GOD hates Trump and hates all those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters promote hatred against Whites, and especially against Whites who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.
NEW YORK TIMES
— What Went Wrong for Joe Biden in Iowa His placement behind his leading rivals in the caucuses on Monday dealt a damaging blow to his campaign. Some party officials say it was a long time in the works. – Katie Glueck, Jonathan Martin and Thomas Kaplan (DIERSEN: Biden’s critics/opponents have already stressed, or will stress, that he is old, White, male, Christian, a draft avoider, a Corvette owner, and his ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
— We May Be the First People to Receive Reparations for Slavery Georgetown sold our ancestors, and the school has decided how much money we’re owed. – DaVita Robinson, Valerie White and Maxine Crump (DIERSEN: In my defense, while my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s from what is now Germany, they always stayed in northeast Illinois, in Crete and in Grant Park to be exact. They never owned slaves. They worked in a brick factory in Chicago, farmed in Crete and in Grant Park, operated a hardware store in Crete, and worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights.)
— Epoch Times, Punished by Facebook, Gets a New Megaphone on YouTube – Kevin Roose (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who punish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Better yet, I should sue them.)
— The Trump Fans Who Think Impeachment Was ‘Exactly’ What His Base Needed At a State of the Union watch party in Michigan, the president’s most loyal supporters dug in their heels. – Elaina Plott
WALL STREET JOURNAL
— A Bitter Impeachment Ends; Its Divisions May Live On The rancor between the GOP and Democrats may not be just an impediment for the rest of the year but for a long time to come – Gerald F. Seib (DIERSEN: In 1974, when I worked for the Democrats who ran IRS, they took Nixon’s resignation as proof a) that they were good and b) that I was bad.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Pot pushers push pot.
— MARK R. FRERICHS OF LOMBARD KIDNAPPED BY TALIBAN GROUP IN AFGHANISTAN – JAMES LAPORTA, TOM O’CONNOR AND NAVEED JAMALI
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Trump-haters say that GAO is “nonpartisan,” but anyone who reads the filings in Diersen v. GAO would see that GAO functions as an arm of the Democrat Party. If I had been a Democrat, the Democrats who ran GAO a) would not have forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) would not have given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, c) would not have always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, d) would have promoted me beyond GS-13, e) would not have gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, f) would have assigned me to audits of IRS, and g) would not have forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)
— The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President How new technologies and techniques pioneered by dictators will shape the 2020 election – McKay Coppins (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, all government and political news and commentary is disinformation except for the government and political news and commentary that they put out or bless. They focus on destroying individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that they cannot manipulate/dominate. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican to give them standing to destroy those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
— THE HEDGE FUND VAMPIRE THAT BLEEDS NEWSPAPERS DRY NOW HAS THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE BY THE THROAT In its mission to squeeze the last profits out of newspapers, Alden Global Capital has eliminated the jobs of scores of reporters and editors, and decimated journalism in cities all over the country: Denver, Boston, San Jose, Trenton, etc. Next up: Chicago, Baltimore, and the New York Daily News. – JOE POMPEO (DIERSEN: How has the Chicago Tribune treated those who share you demographics? The Chicago Tribune has treated the following extremely well: those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

EDITOR & PUBLISHER
— Should Journalists Take Part in Political Movements? – Evelyn Mateos (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, you cannot be a journalist if you state that you are a Republican, let alone, serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. As everyone knows, virtually all journalists are Democrats, Libertarians, or Greens, but they fail/refuse to acknowledge that. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who a) glorify, praise, and pander to journalists who are Democrat, Libertarian, or Green and b) do everything that they can to discredit me, to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and to stop everyone from reading those emails.)
