— Democrats acknowledge that “At least 24 shot in weekend gun violence across city.”
— Democrats say “Chicago takes on new approach to fight pollution problems, focusing on environmental justice. Officials connected pollution from industry and major highway traffic with the 10-year life expectancy gap between Black and white Chicagoans.” My father worked in the office of a nasty polluted chemical plant on the northeast side of Chicago Heights from 1941 until he died in 1969 at age 47. I worked in the polluted Chicago Heights 1964-1966 and 1970-1972. I worked in the polluted Harvey 1972-1973.

— Democrats acknowledge that “USPS holding 7 job fairs in Chicago area this week.” The Democrats who ran the Post Office in 1966 hired me when I was 18 years old because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. But if I was 18 today, USPS would not hire me today because of my bad demographics.

— Democrats acknowledge that “Mexican Independence Day caravans took over downtown Chicago, some events spiraled out of control.”
— Democrats ever-increasingly push more pot.
— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more abortion.
— Democrats say “Johnson releases report showing which Chicago communities are most affected by pollution.” My father worked in the office of a nasty polluted chemical plant on the northeast side of Chicago Heights from 1941 until he died in 1969 at age 47. I worked in the polluted Chicago Heights 1964-1966 and 1970-1972. I worked in the polluted Harvey 1972-1973.

— Democrats crow about their success in using mass shootings to disarm Republicans.

— Democrats say “FOP president livid after prosecutors drop charges against migrant who allegedly attacked cops.”

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— FRONT PAGE: Democrats say “Chaotic street closures, scuffles with police prompt city officials to consider new ways to celebrate Mexican Independence Day.”

— Democrats say “Congestion, chaos from Mexican Independence Day crowds must be addressed, City Council members say. A downtown parade or festival would help city avoid sporadic, ad-hoc celebrations city wide that jammed streets and caused all sorts of problems.”
— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more abortion.
— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more hatred against Republicans.

— FRONT PAGE: Democrats crow about their success in using mass shootings to disarm Republicans.
— Teachers’ hypocrisy – Tony Atkins, Wheaton
(FROM THE LETTER: We are told that school choice is racist. The Invest in Kids tax credit program that is expiring is fascist and racist according to teachers unions and CTU President Stacy Davis Gates yet she has school choice sending her kids to private schools. Facts are that 40% of the Chicago teachers send their kids to private school. Nationally 11% of the parents send kids to private school while it is 20% of teachers sending their kids to private school. With at least 50 schools and possibly more in Chicago not having any kids read, write or complete math at grade level no wonder CTU is sending their kids to private schools. Evidently, they can’t educate taxpayers’ kids so they want someone else to educate theirs using their over bloated tax payer-paid salary to pay tuition.)

— Democrats acknowledge that “The tab for Johnson’s agenda is coming due — and biz is expected to pick it up.”
— Democrats say “Ken Griffin calls Ron DeSantis Disney fight pointless.” How soon will Griffin official declare that he is anti-conservative and anti-Republican?

— Democrats say “Florida jury pool could give Trump an advantage in classified documents case.” To get a fair trial, you need to get a jury of your peers. Trump cannot get a fair trial because hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters have had far too much success in getting Trump’s peers, that is, those who share his demographics, to hate him. Trump is heterosexual, conservative, Republican, White, male, older, non-poor, married, non-veteran, gun-owner, Protestant, German American, and his ancestors have been in America for a long time. I share all of the aforesaid demographics with Trump. I should write a book about those a) who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, b) who hate Trump the most, c) who they themselves share many demographics with Trump, d) who have done the most to promote hatred against me since 2015, and e) who have taken the most/biggest adverse actions against me since 2015.

— Democrats acknowledge that “Attorney Thomas DeVore has filed a motion to reconsider the state’s assault-style weapons ban.”

— Democrats say “Trump draws fire from anti-abortion activists over refusal to back national restrictions.”

— Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly use DEI to get rid of Republicans.

— Democrats say “She’s #1! Woman accused of pepper spraying 4 Chicago cops is first to be sent home under state’s cashless bail system.”
— Democrats say “Meet the last person who’ll ever be ordered to pay cash to get out of Cook County jail.”

— Democrats acknowledge that “Chicago metro’s median income dropped from pre-pandemic.” Anticipate/expect that under the Democrats, poverty and crime will ever-increasingly increase in America, in Illinois, in your county, in your township, in your municipality, in your school district, in your precinct, and in your neighborhood.

— Democrats say “Instead of tents for migrants.” Democrats ever-increasingly promote more illegal immigration.

— Democrats say “Morning briefing.”
— Democrats say “Afternoon roundup.”
— Democrats crow about their success in using mass shootings to disarm Republicans.


— Illinois FOP doesn’t blame police officers moving to Florida – Greg Bishop
— Rules for Illinois’ firearms registry filed as some expect low compliance rate – Greg Bishop
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gun rights advocate Todd Vandermyde warned in December before the measure passed people wouldn’t comply. “You can’t put us all in jail, your new bail law just said you can’t do that,” Vandermyde told lawmakers during a hearing. “You will have civil disobedience to where people aren’t gonna register things. They’re not gonna surrender things. They’re not going to turn them in. So I ask you, what is the enforcement mechanism? You going to send state police house to house?”)

— Congressional lawmakers, staffers told how to avoid becoming a victim in D.C.’s crime wave – Matt Delaney
— Trump calls out ‘liberal Jews who voted to destroy America’ in post on Jewish New Year – Mallory Wilson (COMMENT: Government is vicious. Politics is vicious. Democrats are vicious. I am conservative, Republican, 100% German American, and I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran. I should write a book about the great success that Democrat politicians had forcing my many liberal Jewish GAO, IRS, and Post Office superiors and supervisors to take many/big adverse actions against me. At GAO, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, they always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, they delayed my promotions and never promoted me beyond GS-13, they kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and they forced me to suffer a $21,863/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. AT IRS, they never promoted me beyond GS-12, they disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and they disallowed my travel vouchers in 1974. At the Post Office, they forced me to resign in 1969 and they disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. Further, I should write a book about the vicious 4-page article in Money Magazine’s February 1978 issue that liberal Jews wrote about me.

— UAW strike puts Biden’s electric vehicle revolution in the hot seat – Ramsey Touchberry

— Trump wants a full GOP surrender on abortion – Zachary Faria (COMMENT: What do abortion advocates have to say about that?)

— Biden protects the bloated bureaucracy over those they serve – Betsy McCaughey (COMMENT: Democrats run the federal government. Do you know any Republicans who work/worked for the federal government? In 1980, I was one of the last Republicans GAO hired. In 1971, I was one of last Republicans IRS hired. In 1966, I was one of the last Republicans the Post Office hired. I should write a book about what my Democrat superiors did to waste my career and to get rid of me.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The White House unveiled a proposed rule Friday that would make it even harder than in the past for an incoming Republican president to wrest control of the left-leaning federal bureaucracy and actually implement the conservative policies promised to voters. Of the 2.2 million federal workers, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The rest stay in their jobs, from one administration to the next, protected by rules making it nearly impossible to discipline or replace them. They overwhelmingly favor the left. A staggering 95% of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates give to Democrats, according to Open Secrets. Only a tiny 5% support Republicans. Some federal workers in high positions slow-walk or even derail a Republican president’s agenda — and get away with it. Why bother to vote if the left-leaning deep state stays in charge no matter who wins the presidency? GOP candidates Donald Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis are vowing to conquer this obstructionism.)

— Goldman Sachs Quietly Scrubs Its Race-Based Eligibility Criteria From Its Diversity’ Program – KATELYNN RICHARDSON (COMMENT: To encourage members of one group to apply is to discourage members of another group to apply. To encourage those who are “Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, or women” to apply is to discourage White males from applying.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Goldman Sachs quietly scrubbed references to race from its eligibility criteria for a two-day “diversity symposium” after legal experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation the program could run into problems with federal civil rights laws. The eligibility criteria for Goldman Sachs’ 2023 MBA Diversity Symposium previously restricted the program to students “that identify as Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, or women,” according to a web archive from Sept. 13. The eligibility requirements no longer include race or gender, the current webpage shows, a change that follows a Saturday DCNF report on race and gender-restricted opportunities for college students offered by top Wall Street investment banking firms. The program is now open to “first-year MBA students interested in pursuing a 2024 Summer Associate opportunity,” according to the updated information page. Goldman Sachs now notes at the bottom of the page that “students that identify as Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, or women are encouraged to apply.”)

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more LGBTQ.
— Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly promote more wokeness/wokeism.
— Democrats acknowledge that “Vassar College, a Gender Equity Pioneer, Is Sued for Paying Women Less.” Female Vassar employees should consider working for GAO. If I had not been denied my 7th Amendment rights in Diersen v. GAO, I would have provided a jury with many examples in which GAO paid my female coworkers more than me who had a) less job-related work experience than I had, b) less job-related education than I had, c) fewer professional certifications than I had, and/or d) no professional license. I became a licensed CPA in 1981 when I was 32 years old.
— Democrats say “Why Los Angeles Has Avoided the Migrant Crisis Hitting New York.”

— Democrats ever-increasingly promote more EVs. How soon will Pritzker outlaw gasoline-powered vehicles in Illinois? I own eight. One of them is my 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX V-8 that Obama condemned as being a clunker.
— Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly reject the Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision.
— Democrats say “Republicans have talked a lot in recent years about becoming a “workers party,” without having much of an agenda to match the rhetoric. A new Senate proposal aims to start changing that. The bill would raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $11 per hour while also requiring employers to check that their employees are legally authorized to work in the United States.” My critics/opponents have always viciously demonized me, viciously denigrated me, and viciously condemned me as being overpaid. In my defense, I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree in 1970 when I was 21 years old. I earned job-related master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997. I earned job-related professional certifications in 1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997. I earned a job-related professional license in 1981.

— The UAW’s Shawn Fain wants to wreck ‘the billionaire class’ as analysis reveals Ford, GM and Stellantis CEOs make at least 281 times their average employee – PAIGE HAGY

— Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly reject the Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision.

— Democrats ask “Would you be willing to accept migrants waiting for asylum in your community?” Anticipate/expect that sooner or later, that the more Democrats and RINOs that there are in your state, county, township, municipality, and school district, the more illegals that will be accepted. Where you live, where will the money come from to house them, to feed them, to clothes them, to give them medical care, to educate them, to give them transportation, to give them jobs, to give them etc.?
— Democrats crow that “School administrators bypassing critical race theory bans.” Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly reject the Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision.

— Agencies have a chance to propose new special salary rates – Drew Friedman (COMMENT: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my GAO salary was $142,650/year in today’s dollars. In my defense, I had worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $109-732-$142,650/year. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $92,279- $104,583/year. I had earned job-related professional certifications in 1997, 1996, 1994, 1990, 1981, and 1979. I had earned a job-related professional license in 1981. I had earned job-related master’s degrees in 1997, 1980, and 1976. I had earn a job-related bachelor’s degree in 1970.)
