-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Burglars strike Diersen's precinct. A residential burglary was reported Thursday in the 900 block of Golf Lane. Burglars used force to open a door on the residence while no one was home. Items including cash and jewelry were taken. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Wheaton police Cmdr. Joseph Eversole at (630) 260-2055. If the burglars voted in the November 4 election, I am sure that they voted for Democrat Obama. The Democrat Party promotes the rights that criminals have while the Republican Party promotes the rights that victims of crime have.

-- FROM THE ARTICLE: State lawmakers overwhelmingly think Illinois can and will recover from its latest embarrassment over a political scandal, just days after Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s arrest on federal corruption charges, a new survey has found. The survey of 134 of the 177 Illinois state lawmakers, conducted by Suburban Life Publications and GateHouse News Service since Blagojevich’s arrest Tuesday, found 124 legislators think the state can rebound from the mess it’s now facing. That’s 93 percent of lawmakers who responded to the survey, and nearly 70 percent of the full legislature.

LAKE COUNTY REPUBLICANS
-- Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran to Announce His Change of Party Affiliation - Dan Venturi
http://www.lakecountyrepublicans.com/default.aspx
LIBERTYVILLE, IL - Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran will join a host of Republican State and local leaders to announce his reasons for switching party affiliation from Democrat to Republican at a formal press conference Monday, December 15 at 9:30 a.m. WHEN: Monday, December 15, at 9:30 a.m. WHERE: Lake County Republican Headquarters, 320 Peterson Road, Libertyville, IL 60048 SPEAKERS: Sheriff Mark Curran, Lake County Sheriff; Andy McKenna, Illinois Republican Chairman; Honorable Jim Ryan, Former Attorney General; State's Attorney Michael Waller, Lake County State's Attorney; Daniel Venturi, Lake County Republican Chairman; State Representative Ed Sullivan, Jr., 51st State Representative District; State Senator-Elect Dan Duffy, 26th State Senate District.

GOPUSA ILLINOIS-- Beliefs that many George Ryan supporters seem to have - Dave Diersen
www.gopillinois.com-- Moral relativism is good, the rule of law is bad, and the end justifies the means.-- George Ryan is innocent of all charges and conservatives, that is, Republicans who support the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform, caused him to be investigated, to be indicted, and to be convicted. -- Conservatives are "kooks" and "extremists" and they have caused all the world's problems, are causing all the world's problems, and will forever cause all the world's problems.-- Conservatives must be driven out of the IRP as soon as possible.-- You must be blindly loyal to incumbent party leaders and to their supporters to hold any kind of leadership role in the IRP, the DuPage County Republican Party, the Milton Township Republican Party, etc.-- The greater loyalty that you show toward incumbent party leaders and toward their supporters, the greater the freedom you have to violate laws, to violate bylaws, to violate rules, to punish whoever you want to for whatever reason you want, etc.-- To get into office and to stay in office you should spend most if not all your time a) ascribing evil motive, bad judgment, and lack of ability those individuals and organizations you cannot dominate; b) destroying organizations and destroying individuals that are critical of you; and c) pandering to the liberal news media.-- Illinois Republicans, especially conservatives, should NOT be allowed to directly elect those who govern the IRP.

DIERSEN: Jim Edgar would not have become governor were it not for Jim Thompson and his domination of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC). George Ryan would not have become governor in 1998 were it not for Jim Thompson and Jim Edgar and their domination of the IRP SCC. Jim Ryan would not would not have won the gubernatorial primary in 2002 were it not for Jim Thompson, Jim Edgar, and George Ryan and their domination of the IRP SCC. Alan Keyes would not have been selected to fill the Jack Ryan vacancy in 2004 were it not for Jim Thompson, Jim Edgar, George Ryan, and Judy Baar Topinka and their domination of the IRP SCC. Andy McKenna would not have been elected IRP Chairman in 2005 were it not for Jim Thompson, Jim Edgar, George Ryan, Jim Ryan, and Judy Baar Topinka and their domination of the IRP SCC. Judy Baar Topinka would not would not have won the gubernatorial primary in 2006 were it not for Jim Thompson, Jim Edgar, George Ryan, Jim Ryan, and Judy Baar Topinka and their domination of the IRP SCC.
