— Orland Park takes vote of no confidence in state’s attorney, asks Kim Foxx to resign – MICHELLE MULLINS
— As an election observer in 2014, I saw Ukrainians’ commitment to sovereignty – PETER ROSKAM
(COMMENT: Roskam was my state representative 1993-1999, state senator 2000-2007, and congressman 2007-2019. Roskam’s endorsement helped me win a contested precinct committeeman race in 2000. I have done a lot to help elect him and to help reelect him. I gathered signatures in my precinct on his nominating petitions. I got campaign sign locations for him in my precinct, including for second-floor 4X4 signs at the southeast corner of Roosevelt Road and Warrenville Road. I delivered lots of his campaign literature in my precinct. I invited him to speak at TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition events. Duckworth had her thugs throw me out her rally with Michael J. Fox in the Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton in 2006. I raised $2,000 for an elephant to walk behind him in Wheaton’s 2007 Independence Day parade. However, sadly, I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have blamed me the most and have blamed my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters the most for Roskam’s problems. I have been the Illinois reporter for since 2000. My critics/opponents did not want me to attend Henry Hyde’s press conference in 2005 ( ) when he endorsed Roskam. But when I attended anyway, they warned me to not ask any questions. Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being just like Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: Since 2005, they have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents.)

— Concordia University Wisconsin, a university of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has immediately suspended and banned from its campus Reverend Dr. Gregory Schulz, a philosophy professor, for writing an article criticizing the school’s descent into “Woke-ness.” – Federalist
(COMMENT: The Missouri Synod emerged from several communities of German Lutheran immigrants during the 1830s and 1840s. It was organized in 1847 at a meeting in Chicago. My ancestors worked in a brick factory in Chicago at that time. I was baptized as a Missouri Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, raised as a MSL, and confirmed as a MSL in 1962. My outstanding parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. I should write a book about those who have/had lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned MSLs the most as being “too conservative.”)

(COMMENT: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always viciously demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being overpaid. GAO started paying me $104,915/year (GS-13 Step 1) in today’s dollars in 1986 when I was 38 years old. I had worked for GAO for almost 7 years, and before that, for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $88,229-$99,994/year. I had passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt and had become a licensed CPA when I was 32. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30. I had earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul when I was 31. I had earned an MBA from Loyola when I was 27. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU when I was 21.)

IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

— What are the ethical responsibilities of a CPA who is the treasurer of a nonprofit organization?
(COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have worked the hardest since 2000 to stop me from becoming a treasurer for the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, etc. I would focus on those who spoke against me when I unsuccessfully ran for the open MTRO Treasurer position in 2004. I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5/12 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $88,229-$99,994. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $104,915-$136,387/year. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980.
