RIVERSIDE BROOKFIELD LANDMARK
— Democrats say that Lyons Township High School District 204 school board candidate Tim Vlcek acknowledges that he attended an Awake Illinois candidate training session in January, but that he says that he is not affiliated with Awake Illinois. I served as the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012 and as a member of the Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee 2003-2007. I should write a book about those who have blamed TAPROOT and ICRC the most for Republican defeats in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. I would focus on those who succeeded in a) ending my TAPROOT chairmanship and destroying TAPROOT and b) ending my ICRC Steering Committee service and destroying ICRC. I would focus on those who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted the loudest that TAPROOT and ICRC caused Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct to lose.

— School administrators undermine excellence to promote ‘equity’ ‘Warriors’ are purveyors of racism and discrimination. – Hans von Spakovsky (COMMENT: How soon will Democrats require that those who do the following have to be proportional based on racer: a) pass the CPA examination and b) pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination? I am White. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981. But to make it so that the percentage of those who pass the examinations on their first attempt is proportional base on race, will points be given and/or taken away from examination takers to make that happen based on race? For example, if more Asian Americans disproportionally pass the examinations on their first attempt, will points be taken away from them?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ally Financial, Amalgamated Bank, Bank of America, Berkshire Bank, BMO Harris, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Eastern Bank, Fifth Third Bank, First Republic Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, PNC, Royal Bank of Canada, Scotiabank, TD Bank, Bancorp, Trillium Asset Management, Truist, US Bank, and Wells Fargo. . .When it comes to transportation, while the leftist airlines—Alaska, American, Southwest, United, and XPO Logistics—cannot refuse to do business based on ideological or religious considerations (the Civil Rights Act prevents that), they are big actors behind the scenes, pushing legislation advancing leftist policies. Thus, American Airlines actively fought against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act, while Southwest tries to shut down state laws enhancing election integrity. The major retail giants are also pushing leftism. We’ve seen it with Target, which has been in the forefront of Gay Pride for decades, but it may surprise you to learn that Walmart and Home Depot are also using their economic power to push leftist policies. “For example, 1792 Exchange notes Home Depot ‘advertised flyers to its employees about confronting their ‘white privilege, Christian privilege, heterosexual privilege, able-bodied privilege,’ etc.’” The leftist madness continues with food and beverage companies. We already knew about Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, Coca-Cola, and Kellogg’s (with a history of weird progressivism spanning more than 100 years), but you probably didn’t know that McDonald’s and JM Smucker were also on the leftist bandwagon. Again, they sell their products to everyone but use their profits to advance leftist political goals. Finally, we all know about the true biggies: The social media companies, Disney, Hollywood, Google (which was apparently developed with CIA funding). We’re seemingly surrounded.)

— Democrats say that Tucker Carlson is roasted for complaint about ‘Old Men’ running countries, call him a “tantrum-throwing Fox News host, and say that he grumbled that men in their 80s “are not strong enough.” Carlson is 53-year-old White male, how soon will his critics/opponents succeed in dumping him for being “too old?”
— Democrats say that conservative justices appear ready to scrap Biden’s student loan plan. What percent of those who have student loans are Democrats?
— Democrats say that Trump flips out at ‘fake’ Fox News for ‘promoting’ DeSantis. Of course, to turn Trump supporters against me, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would say that I promoted DeSantis when I listed high-profile Republican speaker and attendees at the February 20, 2023 DeSantis event in Elmhurst.
— Democrats say Lori Lightfoot becomes the first Chicago mayor in 40 years to lose re-election. My critics/opponents were furious that I got reelected a) as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman in 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, and 2006 and b) as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member in 2006, 2005, and 2004.

YAHOO & HUFFINGTON POST
— Democrats say that Ex-RNC Chair Michael Steele delivers stark warning over Trump loyalists. I should write a book about those who have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me the most as being a Trump loyalist. I would focus on those who almost succeeded in stopping me from reporting who the high-profile Republican attendees were at the February 20, 2023 DeSantis event in Elmhurst. I would focus on those who ended my service as the Republican fundraiser for Wheaton Independence Day parades and fireworks 2005-2019. I would focus on those who stress the many demographics that I share with Trump: conservative, Republican, White, male, older, heterosexual, draft-avoider, gun-owner, married, non-poor, Protestant, German American, and our ancestor have been in American for a long time.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Michael Steele, former chair of the Republican National Committee, has a blunt message for anyone hoping to see improvements within the party in the age of Donald Trump and his “MAGA grifters.” “If you’re waiting for it to get better, it’s not going to happen,” he said while filling in as host of MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.” “The problem is that Trump’s movement within the party is rotten to the core,” he said. He pointed to the lengths people on the right have gone to court Trump loyalists, such as a new admission from Fox News that the network allowed people it knew to be dangerous liars on the air in order to continue to keep Trump supporters tuned in. He noted that the Trump wing of the party has embraced Jan. 6 rioters as well as characters such as “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams, who last week went on a racist tirade urging white people to “get the hell away from Black people,” and Kyle Rittenhouse, the shooter acquitted of murder charges after he killed two unarmed racial justice protesters in 2020. “A rational Republican party would not prop these folks up as heroes,” he said. “But the MAGA Republicans have sold their souls to Trump’s brand of culture-war politics ― and for the RNC, guys like Scott Adams are just another way to fundraise off of grift and grievance.” He urged the party to throw out the “MAGA grifters,” but didn’t seem optimistic that it would happen.)
NEWSWEEK & MSN
— Democrats ask if Trump supporters were asked to leave a DeSantis book signing.

— Democrats say that judges, not lawmakers, are setting 2023’s tech policy. My critics/opponents want the power to stop me from sending out GOPUSA Illinois newsletters. But failing that, they want the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) to have that power. I should write a book about what my critics/opponents, IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO have done since 2000 to stop me sending out those newsletters and to stop everyone from reading those newsletters.
