— Democrats promote Democrat parents and teachers.
— Democrats demonize, denigrate, and condemn the FOP.

— False claims of book ban are dangerous – Kevin Coyne, Naperville
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: Democrats say “Community colleges see continued enrollment growth.”
— Democrats say “DuPage committee on affordable housing moves in the right direction.” My Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious in 1978 that my wife and I could afford to buy 1017 East Harrison in Wheaton ( ). My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were even more furious in 1984 that my wife and I could afford to have 915 Cove Court built in Wheaton ( ). In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $101,507/year in 1978 and my GAO salary was $104,583/year in 1984. Virtually all of my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates painted themselves as being dramatically underpaid. But virtually none of them earned a) job-related master’s degrees like I did (MBA, Loyola, 1976; M.S. in accounting, DePaul, 1980; and M.S. in financial markets and trading, IIT, 1997) or b) job related professional certifications/license like I did (CPA; 1979, Certified Internal Auditor, 1981; CPA license; 1981; Certified Fraud Examiner, 1990; Certified Government Financial Manager, 1994; Certified Financial Services Auditor, 1996; and Forensic Accountant, 1997). To get bonuses, pay increases, and promotions, instead of getting job-related degrees, professional certifications, or professional licenses, they focused on getting rid of their superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who were conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or had ancestors who had been in America for a long time.)

— Democrats say “Motive unclear after 6 killed in TN school shooting; new video shows moment leading up to attack. Surveillance video shows the suspect — identified as Audrey Hale — shooting through a locked door on the side of the building.”

— Democrats ever-increasingly hint/imply/argue/shout at Jewish people that Republicans have caused, are causing, and will forever cause all the problems that Jewish people have had, are having, and will have. My Democrat Post Office, IRS, and GAO superiors focused on that. They stressed to my many Jewish superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates that I was Protestant, 100% German American, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978.

The megalomania of the current crop of students, faculty, and administrators at our radical universities blinds them to the claims of their generations of benefactors. – Victor Davis Hanson (COMMENT: I earned degrees from NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and IIT. From what I see, ever-increasingly, they want to get rid of their alumni who are conservative, Republican, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, Protestant, German American, and/or who have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)

— Transgenderism remains a mental illness – Don Fisher, Jr.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Of course, the fictional notion of transitioning to the other sex is complete nonsense, and up until 2013 it was accurately categorized as a mental illness by the American Psychiatric Association (A.P.A.). In that year, the DSM-5 downgraded transgenderism to “gender dysphoria,” and it’s a safe bet that the Leftists who control the A.P.A. will erase it completely in their next edition, much as they did when homosexuality was eliminated from their list of mental illnesses. That slight-of-hand was accomplished not by advances in science nor medicine, but by relentless lobbying from various pro-homosexual groups and the voting body of the A.P.A. That was the first step in getting it accepted by mainstream society, and the issue of transgenderism is following a similar path. In the following days, we’ll be lectured by the usual leftists pretending to be journalists about all the evils of allowing guns in our modern society, but criticism of transgenderism will be strictly off limits. We’ll be told that this fantasy male that Audrey Hale was becoming would have been her “authentic self,” and that any torment she suffered was the fault of a repressive and bigoted society that cannot accept the amazing people who discover their need to change. No, they’ll wail, it’s not the fault of those confused few whose bodies don’t match their imaginations, but rather it’s caused by everyone else who adheres to human biology and history since mankind began. For the record, being transgender or having a host of other mental illnesses doesn’t necessarily make someone a violent threat to society, and it’s not meant to imply that Ms. Hale killed others because of her apparent transgender preference. Nevertheless, being diagnosed or self-identifying as transgender makes someone mentally ill and no amount of leftist spin, nor brightly colored flags in a parade, can change that.)

— Warriors Don’t Want to Fight for a Woke, Anti-American Military – J.B. Shurk
— Vivek Ramaswamy’s extraordinary discussion with Jordan Peterson – Andrea Widburg
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Transgenderism is a leftist-induced mental illness that is intended to achieve two very specific ends that will empower statism: First, it destroys the family. This is overtly achieved by the groomers in and outside of schools who tell children that “we’re your family,” and more covertly achieved by making these mentally damaged people physically and emotionally incapable of having children. Second, it makes these same people utterly dependent on the government to pay for the lifelong medical costs associated with hormones and surgery.)

— The White House Displays Bias Against Conservative Reporters (COMMENT: I should write a book about the following who have displayed the most bias against conservative reporters like me: past and present a) leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization, b) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct and their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers, c) conservative leaders and activists, and d) religious leaders and activists. I would focus on the aforesaid who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me.

— Transgenderism Doesn’t Bring the Promised Happiness. How many more people need to die before this truth is realized? – EMMY GRIFFIN

— Police RELEASE video showing Nashville trans school shooter Audrey Hale driving to Christian school, shooting through front doors. Hale entered the school through the front doors with guns blazing.


— Democrats say “Trump troubles, McConnell absence create GOP leadership vacuum.”

— Democrats say “For Trump and Trumpers, the script doesn’t change.” While he was President, Trump did far more than either Bush to defend and advance the Republican Party platform.

— Democrats blast the GOP’s “Parents Bill of Rights.” Democrats want parents who have demographics that vote for Democrats to have special rights. Those demographics include liberal, moderate, minority, female, younger, unmarried, LGBTQ, poor, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-Italian American, non-German American, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.

— Democrats use the Nashville shooting to further diminish Second Amendment rights.

— Democrats say “Evanston City Council votes in favor of expanding its reparations program to repair housing discrimination.”
— Democrats say “In 2024 Republicans may complete a historic foreign policy reversal.”
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After Eisenhower’s landmark victory over Taft in 1952, every Republican presidential nominee over the next six decades – a list that extended from Richard Nixon through Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney – identified more with the internationalist than isolationist wing of the party.)
— Democrats use the Nashville shooting to further diminish Second Amendment rights.
— Democrats say “Nashville private school shooting suspect had maps of building and scouted possible second attack location.”
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Police identified the shooter as Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old former student at the school, and called the attack targeted. . .Police have referred to Hale as the “female shooter” and at an evening press conference added that Hale was transgender. When asked for clarification, a spokesperson told CNN Hale used “male pronouns” on a social media profile.)
— Democrats say “Police search for motive in ‘calculated and planned’ mass shooting that killed 6 at Nashville Christian school.”

— Democrats stress that Nikki Haley said that “our Republicans added to our debt crisis.”

— Democrats use the Nashville shooting to further diminish Second Amendment rights.

— Democrats say “Targeting Mayorkas, G.O.P. Takes Its Immigration Message to the Border.”

— Democrats say “The gun that divides a nation. The AR-15 thrives in times of tension and tragedy. This is how it came to dominate the marketplace – and loom so large in the American psyche.” If/when the many millions of invading citizens of foreign countries start shooting at citizens of America, they will be met with American AR-15s.
— Democrats ask “Why do Americans own AR-15s?” and says “The Washington Post and Ipsos asked nearly 400 AR-15 owners why they own the rifle.” In Illinois, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, expect that ever-increasingly, the more of the following that you are, the more that you will be presumed to be an AR-15 owner, and therefore, the more that you will be demonized, denigrated, and condemned: FOID card holder, heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, veteran, married, non-poor, married, homeowner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Ever-increasingly, the more of the aforesaid that you are, the more that Democrats and RINOs do to get rid of you once and for all.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The survey found that AR-15 owners come from red, blue and purple states. Compared with Americans as a whole, AR-15 owners are significantly more likely to be White, male and between the ages 40 and 65. They’re also more likely to have higher incomes, to have served in the military and to be Republican. And AR-15 owners are more likely to live in states former president Donald Trump won in 2020 than adults overall. Self-defense was the most popular reason for owning an AR-15. Other popular answers included recreation, target shooting and hunting, while some pointed to owning an AR-15 as their Second Amendment right.)
— Democrats say “Varmints, soldiers and looming threats: See the ads used to sell the AR-15.”
— Democrats say “Trump’s fate hangs in balance with Manhattan grand jury.”
— Democrats a) say “Gunmakers’ growth in red states marks a divide on weapons” and b) make it ever-increasingly clear that Democrats want to abolish the Second Amendment to disarm Republicans.

— Police seek motive as Nashville school shooting captures the attention of a divided nation – Terry Castleman, Alexandra E. Petri, Kevin Rector
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The shooter identified as transgender, according to police. Perhaps nowhere is that war as pronounced as in Tennessee, where conservative legislators recently banned gender-affirming care for transgender youth and barred drag queens or other “male or female impersonators” from performing anywhere near children. Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake said police were examining whether the shooter’s transgender identity was part of the motive for the shooting. “As we know more, we’ll definitely make that known, but right now we’re unsure if that actually played a role,” he said. Drake said police believed the shooter might have harbored some “resentment” for “having to go to that school,” but he did not elaborate. Police did not respond to requests for clarity around Hale’s gender identity, chosen name or pronouns.)

— Democrats use the Nashville shooting to further diminish Second Amendment rights.
— Democrats use attacks on abortion clinics to promote abortion.

— Texas GOP likely has votes to outlaw transgender medical care for minors.

— Democrats say “Ban on outside ‘Zuckerbucks’ election funding clears Georgia House.” He who pays the piper calls the tunes. I should write a book about Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000 who have talked like and/or who have acted like they wanted money from, they have been offered money from, and/or they have taken money from those who I have sued and who have/had lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and/or in DuPage County. I would focus on the adverse actions that those candidates and their attorneys have taken against me.

— Democrats say “Amid conservative media opposition, sponsor of Florida defamation bill seeks changes.” I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have talked and/or acted the most like they want to sue me for what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor. I would focus on those who worked the hardest to get the Illinois Center Right Coalition to censure me at its 2006 annual convention for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters. I would focus on those who have blamed me and who have blamed my newsletters the most for defeats that Republican candidates, including Jim Ryan, Bill Brady, Judy Barr Topinka, and Peter Roskam, have suffered.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But the measure has come under intense criticism from First Amendment advocates, who say it is a direct violation of the free speech protections in the U.S. Constitution, and from both legacy media and conservative media outlets who warn that it will open the door to a barrage of lawsuits, including against conservative talk radio hosts.)

— December precinct changes cause confusion for Republican Central Committee – EDNA GRANT (COMMENT: I should write a book about those who have worked the hardest since 2000 to stop me from serving as the elected DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 Republican Precinct Committeeman.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Based on the opinion given by a former Attorney General in 1972, an opinion Mortimer referenced while addressing the board, an appropriate reaction for central committees after a boundary realignment would be continue operating with the previous boundaries regardless of the change, as those precinct committee people are, in fact, elected officials. “It may be an old opinion, but the logic is still good,” Prosecuting Attorney Mark Taylor stated in regard to the 1972 opinion. He further clarified that Idaho code explicitly states Precinct Committeemen and women are to be elected, and appointments should only be made to fill vacancies resulting from death, moving out of jurisdiction areas and the like. If an elected person has not died or moved, he explained to the public, you cannot use a boundary change to remove that person from office. He continued by stating precinct boundary changes are not justification for removing an elected person from an elected position as they do not create vacancies which need to be filled.)

— Some Crazy Ideas Are Deadly Serious. Saying men can get pregnant is ridiculous. Pumping kids full of hormones is wicked. – J. Budziszewski

— To get Catholics to hate Trump, Democrats stress to Catholics that he is Protestant, that he has personal shortcomings, and that he defends and advances many planks in the Republican Party platform that many Catholics reject including a) individual responsibility, b) traditional marriage/family, c) right to life, d) immigration, e) Second Amendment, f) illegal drugs, and g) equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving).

— Democrats ask “Are Trump’s legal troubles earning him Republican support?”

— Democrats say “Christie sees a lane in the GOP primary: Trump destroyer.” I should write a book about my critics/opponents who focus on destroying those like me a) who they cannot manipulate/dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover up their wrong doing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money. I would focus on my critics/opponents a) who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me, b) who have/had lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and/or Illinois, and/or c) who I have sued.

— Democrats say “America’s unique, enduring gun problem, explained. The factors that lead to tragedies like Covenant School are deeply ingrained in US politics, culture, and law.”

— House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan accuses Democrats of trying to ‘politicize the tragedy’ of Nashville shooting – KATELYN CARALLE
— Democrats say “The ‘typical’ US transgender person changes their clothes and hairdo, but eschews drugs and surgery, says a survey that casts doubt on the need for childhood interventions.”

— ‘No one saw this coming.’ School friend of Nashville school shooter says she was ‘sweet and funny’ student, that ‘no-one was surprised’ when she came out as trans – and that she was well supported by school’s LGBTQ community. – VANESSA SERNA

— Chicago Democrats promote racialist politics during mayoral election – Alexander Fangmann

— I should write a book about how and why Democrats have succeeded in invading, in infesting, in conquering, and in destroying DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton. I would focus on past and present anti-conservative a) leaders of the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the Milton Township Republican Organization, b) Republican elected officials, and c) Republican major donors.

— We Don’t Want Nobody Sent: An Oral History of the Daley Years (COMMENT: Richard J. Daily was the mayor of Chicago from 1955 to 1976. No one sent me, but the Democrats who ran IRS’s Chicago office hired me anyway in 1971 because they could find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran who would take the job. They fully expected me to become a Democrat, but I never did. In 1974, to get rid of me, they disallowed my travel vouchers and in 1978, they disallowed my education deductions. In 1997, when his son was mayor, my Democrat GAO Chicago office superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer.”)
