By ever-increasingly demonizing, denigrating, and condemning those who share Trump’s demographics, Democrat leaders ever-increasingly increase support for Trump from those who share his demographics. What demographics do you share with Trump? I share the following demographics: conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, married, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and my ancestors have been in America for a long time.



— Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters say “Better that voters reject Trumpism than judges do it for them. But Trump makes that case hard to argue.”


— Migrants no cause for concern in Burr Ridge, mayor says – Jesse Wright (COMMENT: The less money that you have, the more that illegal immigration harms you. The more money that you have, the more that you benefit from cheap labor. Burr Ridge is a wealthy. SEE: https://propertyclub.nyc/article/richest-chicago-suburbs )


— Morton Grove, Park Ridge, Niles, Skokie, Lincolnwood making plans in case buses drop off migrants – Richard Requena


— Trump plans to deliver a closing argument at his civil fraud trial – AP (COMMENT: I should write about my pro se lawsuit experiences that were caused by attorneys who filed lawsuits for me, but then dumped me when they concluded that the defendants would not settle. The court decision for one of those lawsuits is at https://caselaw.findlaw.com/court/us-7th-circuit/1385001.html )


— Chicago leaders turn away from who is doing the killing in Black communities – Ephraim Lee:


— Fireworks erupt at Harvey City Council meeting after residents being boarded up inside their apartments sparks outrage – Hank Sanders



— City must move quickly on bollards to curb crash-and-grabs in Streeterville. But the relatively widespread nature of the crimes means the city must also sit down with merchants in other neighborhoods to discuss installing bollards. – Editorial (COMMENT: Democrats want to outlaw guns to stop gun crimes. Anticipate/expect that Democrats will want to outlaw vehicles to stop vehicle crimes.)


(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s pretty brazen as far as break-ins go: thieves ramming a vehicle into a retail storefront, then raiding the breached business for whatever merchandise can be taken. Such thefts have been happening too often lately to high-end clothing establishments, particularly those on North Michigan Avenue and the Gold Coast. A predawn crash-and-grab Monday at a Prada store, 30 E. Oak St., resulted in a gun battle that left a police officer shot in the leg and the alleged offender seriously wounded.)

— CPS reports thousands of computers missing — but rarely uses $3 million tracking system to find them. Some devices ultimately turned up but CPS’ inspector general blames the mess on a flawed system for recouping devices and tracking them. – Sarah Karp

— Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH PICTURE OF THE WHEATON TRAIN STATION: DuPage County says it has no authority to enact bus restrictions – Alicia Fabbre (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that Chicago Democrats will dump their illegals in DuPage County.

— Policy Banning Chicago Police Officers From Joining Extremist Groups to Take Effect – Acacia Hernandez (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) the most as being extremist groups. I served as the TAPROOT chairman 2005-2012 and as an ICRC Steering Committee member 2003-2007. I would focus my critics/opponent who blame TAPROOT and ICRC leaders the most for the defeat that Jim Ryan suffered in 2002 and for the defeats that Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct have suffered since then.)



— Since the 1960s, many trillions of dollars have been spent by Democrats and RINOs to promote Affirmative Action and DEI, that is, to promote patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.



— Divided DeKalb City Council OK’s ordinance targeting buses carrying migrants. City staff say DeKalb also has concocted a plan to provide food, housing, other needs to migrants if they do arrive. – Megann Horstead



— Brookfield limits migrant drop-offs. The actions come at Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson’s request. – Amina Sergazina


— Democrat and RINO leaders ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.


— The author of a resolution that would prevent spending McLean County taxpayers’ money on migrants says his proposal is not anti-immigrant. Rather, it’s following the rule of law, said County Board Member Chuck Erickson, who’s also running in the March 19 Republican primary for the Illinois House seat in the 88th District. – Howard Packowitz



— Anticipate/expect that many millions of illegals will use their false identifications to vote for Biden and for the rest of the Democrat candidates.


— Trump plans to deliver a closing argument at his civil fraud trial – AP (COMMENT: I should write about my pro se lawsuit experiences that were caused by attorneys who filed lawsuits for me, but then dumped me when they concluded that the defendants would not settle. The court decision for one of those lawsuits is at https://caselaw.findlaw.com/court/us-7th-circuit/1385001.html )


— Chris Christie questions Nikki Haley’s ability and desire to beat Donald Trump – AP (COMMENT: Who has attacked you most viciously?

— Trump warns of ‘Pandora’s box’ of perpetual presidential prosecutions if charges against him stand. – AP

— “They threw us to the wolves” new Illinois gun law’s impact on gun dealers – Ben Verbanic


— Abolish the IRS? How Republicans are keeping up attacks on the tax agency. – Katie Lobosco (COMMENT: I worked for IRS 1971-1980. I should write a book about those who have used that against me the most.)


(FROM THE ARTICLE: Congressional Republicans and some GOP presidential candidates are continuing to target the Internal Revenue Service – a longtime political punching bag – after Democrats bolstered the agency with billions in new funding meant to help modernize the nation’s tax collector. Most recently, Republican lawmakers secured a concession from Democrats to speed up a $20 billion cut, previously agreed to last June to avoid a US default. Rather than cut $10 billion this year and another $10 billion next year from the IRS, all $20 billion would be rescinded in 2024 under an agreement reached Sunday on 2024 top-line budget numbers. The deal is a key first step to avoid a looming, partial government shutdown, but plenty of work remains before lawmakers reach a broader deal on a final 2024 spending bill. Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidates Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy have suggested they would gut the IRS, along with some other federal agencies. Last week during a CNN town hall, DeSantis went as far as to say that he would eliminate the IRS and replace the nation’s tax code with one flat tax, which would require all taxpayers to pay the same federal tax rate.)


— With thousands of migrants staking their claim in Illinois, State Senator Neil Anderson (R-Andalusia) is calling on Governor JB Pritzker and state and federal democrats to prioritize tax-paying residents who are legal U.S. Citizens. – Lynsey Whitaker

— Rep. Miller Visits Open Southern Border



— I am 75. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted age discrimination big time. Most commonly, age-discriminators do that to curry favor with younger people, and especially with younger people who are liberal/moderate, non-Republican, non-American, minority, female, LGBTQ, poor, veteran, unmarried, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time. Most commonly, age-discriminators discriminate the most against older people who are conservative, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, non-poor, non-veteran, married, Protestant, German American, and/or have ancestors who have been in America for a long time. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who are ever-increasingly taking more/bigger adverse actions against me as I get older.




— Senate Republicans seek federal penalties for road-blocking protesters – Valerie Richardson


— Pro-Hamas protesters with signs and slogans can’t change facts – Rick Berman



— Marxists hate the SATs because they predict a student’s future success – Tiana Lowe Doescher (COMMENT: Democrats hate tests because Democrats get lower scores on tests than Republicans do. That frustrates Democrat efforts to give preference to Democrats. My Democrat IRS superiors were beyond furious when I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30. My Democrat coworkers either had not taken the examination or failed it. My Democrat GAO superiors were beyond furious when I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. None of my Democrat GAO coworkers had the examination let alone passed it. Further, Democrats hate tests because those who have demographics that vote for Democrats, and especially those who are Black or Hispanic, get lower scores on tests than those who have demographics that vote for Republicans do.)

— DeSantis bashes ‘Biden border crisis’ in Florida address and avoids GOP rivals – Haisten Willis (COMMENT: RINO candidates and RINO elected officials avoid the illegal immigration crisis, that is, they reject the immigration plank in the Republican Party platform. They do that a) because they are Democrat, Libertarian, or Green plants or b) because they want to get money from RINO donors and votes from Hispanics.)

— Shapiro Rips Dems Who Claim Opposition To Illegal Immigration Is Racist (COMMENT: Democrats have declared a Second Civil War against Republicans. Illegals are soldiers in the Democrat army. Anticipate/expect that Democrat and RINO leaders will ever-increasingly demonize, denigrate, and condemn Republicans as being White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bogots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. Becasuse of the aforesaid, Republicans are buying more and more and more firearms and ammunition for their self-defense.)

— Texas hits major milestone for migrants sent to sanctuary cities despite liberal fury: ‘We will not back down’ Abbott began transporting migrants in April 2022 – Adam Shaw



— Illinois Gun Owners Still Refusing to Follow Registration Laws – JOHN BOCH (COMMENT: Democrat leaders want to abolish the Second Amendment. First comes registration of firearms, then exorbitant registration fees, and then confiscation.)


(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now the governor, who has designs on the White House either in 2024 or maybe 2028 at the latest, looks weak and feckless. His gun control measure was supposed to be a big pillar of his presidential campaign. “Look, I passed a gun ban in Illinois. Elect me president, and I’ll pass one through Congress too.” Pritzker spent millions to lure the Democratic National Convention to Chicago this year. He wants to appear as a strong and effective state leader ready for the big time in Washington. Appearing feckless and impotent in the face of this gun ban no doubt causes him anger and frustration in private.)

— Why Iowa Turned So Red When Nearby States Went Blue – Jonathan Weisman (COMMENT: I should write a book about why DuPage County, its 4th District, Milton Township, Wheaton, its West District, and my precinct when Blue.

I would focus on past and present Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.

— Physical therapist shares tips to avoid injury while shoveling snow. May cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure. – Wafaa Ezzat (COMMENT: I have an appointment with a physical therapist today. Yesterday, my orthopedic doctor ordered me to not shovel snow this winter because of my injured right shoulder/arm. If you have any suggestions on who I could hire to shovel snow at my Wheaton home this winter, please phone me at 630-653-0462 or email me at diersen@aol.com ASAP. Many newspapers are thrown on my driveway every morning that I then skim to help me put GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters together. They are: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Daily Herald, and New York Times (7 Days a week); Wall Street Journal (Mondays-Saturdays); USA TODAY (Mondays-Fridays); Naperville Sun (Wednesdays and Fridays); and Suburban Life (Thursdays). Two years ago today, ice on my driveway caused me to slip and fall when I retrieved those newspapers. That caused me to suffer a “brain bleed” and injuries that I will never recover from including loss of taste and smell. SEE: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/14480-brain-bleed-hemorrhage-intracranial-hemorrhage )


(FROM THE ARTICLE: As winter weather blankets our area, it’s important for property owners and tenants to ensure their sidewalks are clear of snow and ice. While area cities work to clear streets, alleys, and parking lots of snow and ice, it is the responsibility of property owners and tenants to clear their sidewalks and driveways of snow and ice, which can be a backbreaking chore. According to the CDC slips on ice and snow account for a million injuries each year. “If you’re somebody with a heart condition or an exercise intolerance that you can shuffle because that can the cardiac can definitely be involved there. From a physical therapy standpoint, though, we see shoulder injuries, knee injuries and then falls are a huge thing too. Once you get that first layer of snow shoveled off it tends to be really slippery underneath there,” said Jordan Gillund, Manager of Outpatient Physical Therapy, Genesis Health System. Gillund says that snow shoveling is pretty similar to a gym workout, so it’s important to prepare for it. This includes dressing properly, stretching and warming up your joints, pacing yourself, drinking plenty of water and taking breaks whenever you can. Despite the rush to clear snow before the plow comes, he says it’s important to recognize the toll it takes on the body. “A lot of times, we have people who are bending from the waist bending with their back and not from their knees when lifting, especially when it’s heavy snow, like it is today. We always tell people to keep your back straight, then with your knees. Smaller loads are better, always push the snow versus lifting it when you’re able to.” Gillund also recommends starting to shovel snow shortly after it falls when it’s lighter and fluffier, and make sure to have your phone with you and to always listen to your body. “If you’re somebody with a heart condition or an exercise intolerance that you can’t shovel because that can the cardiac can definitely be involved there. from a physical therapy standpoint, though, we see shoulder injuries, knee injuries and then falls are a huge thing too. once you get that first layer of snow shoveled off it tends to be really slippery underneath there.”)
