CENTER FOR ILLINOIS POLITICS
— Trump Factor and Abortion Signal Higher-than-Normal Midterm Turnout – Derrick Blakley (COMMENT: Expect that ever-increasingly, if you do not hate Trump, the more demographics that you share with Trump, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters will promote hatred against you. I do not hate Trump. I share the following demographics with Trump: conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, married, non-poor, draft-avoider, Protestant, German American, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With Trump, nobody’s undecided on Trump. And he’s doing everything he can to tie as many candidates as possible to himself. Because that’s just the way he operates,” said Mooney. “One thing analysts and political scientists will be looking at is what’s the turnout in the Congressional districts downstate,” said Matt Dietrich, spokesman for the Illinois State Board of Elections. “Trump endorsed GOP congressional candidate Mary Miller. He endorsed Rep. Mike Bost in far Southern Illinois. Is that going to drive a higher turnout in those Congressional districts? And in the governor’s race, where he endorsed State Sen. Darren Bailey, will that motivate more Republicans to be out?” Even though Trump is not on the Illinois ballot, his influence is still widely reflected in the candidates and the themes they’re running both for and against. For most of the race, Bailey has run as a Trump acolyte, while Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker has run as a staunch Trump opponent.)

They stressed that I was Republican, conservative, Protestant, 100% German American, married to a Catholic since 1978, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and a Wheaton resident since 1978. In my book, I would stress the many adverse actions that my many Jewish supervisors took against me.

— Biden administration’s lax border policies have opened the floodgates inundating Idaho. – MIKE CRAPO and JIM RISCH (COMMENT: Expect that soon, Democrats will legalize fentanyl.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Biden administration’s lax border policies have led to this dangerous and lethal influx of fentanyl and drug trafficking which has hit communities across Idaho and our country. Fentanyl has been a primary driver in the increase in drug crimes in Idaho, as the amount of fentanyl seized at the U.S. southern border rises steadily. In eastern Idaho alone, the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office and Idaho Falls Police Department report fentanyl is the leading means of drug-related deaths and overdoses, yet the Biden administration denied a request to add Bonneville County to the Oregon-Idaho High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area designation. The designation would provide additional training and resources to help Idaho communities deal with this crisis.)

They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female. If I had been a Democrat, I would not have had a basis to complain about political affiliation discrimination.
