— COMMENT: Illinois Democrats say “Pinnacle of achievement: Illinois House Republican Jim Durkin announces resignation.” Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many planks in the Republican Party platform.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Freedom Caucus is issuing the following statement that said: “Leader Jim Durkin is offering all kinds of excuses as he leaves the General Assembly, but the truth is under his leadership our caucus is at its lowest point in membership in a very long time. Leader Durkin squandered money in the 2022 Primary to secure legislative candidates in open seats who were loyal to him and who were not necessarily the best fit for the districts in which they ran, and this proved to be a disastrous decision. We are in this mess not because of our principles but because of our leadership’ lack of commitment to our principles. Jim Durkin has abandoned Republican principles of lower taxes, reduced spending and standing up for our Constitutional rights. Raising taxes to spend more money we don’t have and attacking the Constitutional rights of honest citizens is not a winning message. We need to be united as a party against tax increases and we need to be the party of fiscal responsibility. Jim Durkin’s strategy of offering voters a ‘Democrat Lite’ agenda has been a colossal failure. Our party needs bold leadership if we ever hope to get out of the super minority. Jim Durkin has made it clear he is not willing to provide that bold leadership and is leaving the General Assembly. We wish him good luck on his future endeavors.”)

— Congresswoman Mary Miller Statement on Conservative Policy Victories in Speakership Negotiations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-IL) released the following statement on the historic conservative victory to ensure the House of Representatives stops reckless spending and holds the Biden Administration accountable to the American people: “I promised my constituents that I would fight to change the status quo in the DC swamp, and thanks to 20 members who insisted on change, we can now celebrate a historic victory for the conservative movement despite intense pressure for us to give up and accept business as usual in Washington. After intense negotiations and hard work by House Freedom Caucus members and House Republican leadership, we changed the rules to ensure that a Republican-controlled House cannot betray conservatives the way that Senate Republicans did when they passed Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion omnibus. With 40-year high inflation and $31 trillion in debt, we must save our country for our children and grandchildren. Our conservative policy package includes: The power to block an omnibus spending bill from the Senate; The power to eliminate waste by making direct budget cuts to the federal bureaucracy and spending caps to cut spending; A balanced federal budget over the next 10 years A “Church-style” Committee to Investigate the Weaponization of the Federal Government, including the Biden Department of Justice; A Southern Border Security Plan; The end of COVID mandates and funding for them; Requiring 72 hours to read a bill before the vote; The power for one member to call a vote for a new Speaker. I want to thank President Donald Trump, Freedom Caucus Chairman Scott Perry, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, and Speaker Kevin McCarthy for their work making this victory for the conservative movement and the American people possible. I look forward to working with the House Republican Conference to stop Joe Biden’s destructive, radical, leftist agenda!)
— House GOP Leader Jim Durkin Resigning, Says Trump Republicans, 2nd Amendment and Pro-Life Issues “Dragged” GOP Down in Midterm Election (COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Durkin in glorified and praised by hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters. I should write a book about how since 2000 the leaders of the following have treated conservatives, that is, how they have mistreated conservatives, that is, how they have dumped conservatives: Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many planks in the Republican Party platform.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In media interviews after announcing his resignation as House GOP leader, State Rep. Jim Durkin attempted to place all of the blame on the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump. “As long as we continue to say that we are the party of Trump and that we have to abide by the party principles in the platform, 100% we’re gonna continue down this path of losing,” said Durkin. But pointing fingers and blaming others is exactly why Illinois House Republicans are in the super minority – and Durkin has no one else to blame but himself. And blaming the former President does nothing but distract from his own leadership failures. In announcing his resignation on Sunday, Durkin once again began pointing fingers, saying, “I hope that at some point in the near future, and I think we’re getting there, that the party breaks its fever of Donald Trump and understands and learns from the past. Some people will never get there.” But Durkin didn’t just stop there. “So I would just say the sooner that the public realizes that he’s not value added to the Republican Party, we can start looking at what this party used to be about. A party that didn’t insist upon this purity test. A party that is a fiscally conservative first of all, certainly, but we can have a fair and respectful debate within the party on issues related to the Second Amendment, to life and these other social issues, that have been dragging us down in areas that we have to compete in — mainly the suburbs and the collar counties.” To suggest that Second Amendment and pro-life issues are “dragging” the Republican party down is an insult – they are issues that make us Republicans in the first place. In the last week, Illinois Review has published several articles about Durkin using his political influence to target conservative grassroots candidates during the Illinois Primary. Sources also confirmed to Illinois Review that the IL GOP is blaming Durkin for the party’s postage discount abuse, where mailers “Paid for by the Republican Party of Illinois” were sent during the primary to viciously attack conservative Republican grassroots candidates that were challenging Durkin’s friends and political allies. Just a few days ago, Durkin was the only Republican to join the Democrats, voting in favor of the assault weapons ban. The legislation “immediately prohibits the manufacturing, possession, delivery, sales, and purchase of assault weapons” with a few exceptions – if you are a police officer or you are in the military. The Illinois Freedom Caucus sent a late night email urging conservatives to call Democrats and urge them to vote “No,” arguing that the Democrats admitted in committee that they did not consult with gun groups while drafting the legislation – including the Illinois State Rifle Association, who plans on filing a lawsuit when the bill becomes law. Durkin remains a close ally and best friend of IL GOP chairman Don Tracy. During the primary, Durkin was a supporter of Richard Irvin’s Republican campaign for governor, despite Irvin pulling Democratic Primary ballots in 2014, 2016 and 2020.)

— COMENT: Illinois Democrats say “Outgoing Illinois House GOP Leader Jim Durkin to Resign From Legislature.” Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many planks in the Republican Party platform.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Falling short of that goal, Durkin was candid about his hope that the Illinois GOP and its base will see the losses up and down the ballot as an opportunity for a reckoning. “The party needs to hit the reset button and realize what happened again on Tuesday, that we cannot allow the far right fringe to control the party,” Durkin said Nov. 10. “If they continue, we will suffer losses at the same level we did this cycle, last cycle.” Durkin says those losses can be traced in large part to one person: former President Donald Trump.)

Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many of the planks in the Republican Party platform.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He said at the time that while he accepted responsibility for his own mistakes, former President Donald Trump and the Illinois Republican Party’s MAGA wing bear a lot of blame for the party’s troubles. “As long as we continue to say that we are the party of Trump and that we have to abide by the party principles in the platform, 100% we’re gonna continue down this path of losing,” Durkin said. “Whoever succeeds me, we need to do more to not take these strident positions on issues related to firearms, to issues of reproductive health, issues relating to the gay and lesbian community. There are many people who feel very strong about those issues who would vote for Republicans.”)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH PICTURE OF DURKIN: COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Durkin is glorified and praised by hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters. I should write a book about how the leaders of the following since 2000 have treated conservatives, that is, how they have mistreated conservatives, that is, how they have dumped conservatives: Illinois House Republicans, Illinois Senate Republicans, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many of the planks in the Republican Party platform.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: His psychiatric skills, he said, are no longer able to respond to an increasingly rightward Republican Party mindset, fostered by former President Donald Trump and his followers, that threatens to relegate the party to permanent minority status in the state. . .“The politics have changed. The party over the last at least six years has shifted,” he said. “The only way you can win in Illinois is that you’re going to have to just find the candidates that reflect the district. And we should not hold anyone to the 100% (party) purity test that some people in this party expect throughout the state.” . . . Durkin points the blame for the disastrous election results — particularly in the suburbs that were once a cornerstone of Illinois Republicanism — at a statewide GOP ticket led by gubernatorial candidate Darren Bailey, a state senator who leaned heavily on his evangelical Christianity in his campaign and who was endorsed by Trump. . . “We had some great (GOP House) candidates in the suburbs and collar counties and they were all painted (by Democrats) with the same brush, as being Trump sympathizers from a party of intolerance and extremists,” he said. “The Trump factor and Jan. 6 is something that’s not going away anytime soon. And that obviously was in many people’s minds when they talked about their fear for democracy.” Durkin said he thinks Republicans in Illinois will not be successful until the party distances itself from Trump and acknowledges both his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and his 2020 election defeat to Democratic President Joe Biden. . .“I hope that at some point in the near future, and I think we’re getting there, that the party breaks its fever of Donald Trump and understands and learns from the past. Some people will never get there,” he said. “So I would just say the sooner that the public realizes that he’s not value added to the Republican Party, we can start looking at what this party used to be about. A party that didn’t insist upon this purity test. A party that is fiscally conservative first of all, certainly, but we can have a fair and respectful debate within the party on issues related to the Second Amendment, to life and these other social issues, that have been dragging us down in areas that we have to compete in — mainly the suburbs and the collar counties,” he said. . .A group of far-right Republican lawmakers known unofficially as the “Eastern Bloc,” of which Bailey was a member, chafed under policies expanding abortion and gay rights and also proposed legislation to make Chicago a separate state. “I can’t run a candidate in the western suburbs who’s going to win who is mirroring what someone says campaigning on in the Deep South,” Durkin said. “I just don’t think we should be promoting the 51st state in the collars and the suburbs when it certainly plays well downstate.” Durkin became friends with the late U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, even serving as his Illinois director in the 2008 presidential campaign against home-state favorite Barack Obama. Durkin said McCain “would have figured a way to avoid” the Republican “mess” that led to the U.S. House taking 15 ballots before electing Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California speaker, and also “would have ensured that on Jan. 6, maybe something different, maybe something could have been averted.” “The John McCain I know would have gone outside of the Capitol and kicked the asses of the insurrectionists and Trump’s as well,” Durkin said. “He’s the statesman that this country needs.” . . .He and Durbin also developed a friendship. . .One of his last legislative votes was as the lone Republican to vote with Democrats to approve a ban on military-style firearms and large-capacity magazines. Durkin, who has long backed various gun control initiatives, said his vote not only represented his district’s beliefs but was a reflection of his years as a prosecutor.)
— COIMMENT: Illinois Democrats say “Departing state House GOP leader Jim Durkin giving up his seat in Illinois General Assembly.” Ever-increasingly, Durkin makes it clear that he, like McCain, has always rejected many of the planks in the Republican Party platform.
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Western Springs Republican in November said he was relinquishing his role as House minority leader, a largely thankless job as his party moved further to the right and the state moved further to the left. Despite his high-profile departure, Durkin in November told the Sun-Times that he wants moderate Republicans to soldier on. “The state wants people who are more to the middle. That’s why we have a bigger independent voting bloc, because of the extremes in both parties. Extremes on both sides dictate the primaries, and that’s what happens in the general elections,” Durkin said.)
— COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats a) glorify and praise RINOs and b) demonize, denigrate, and condemn conservatives, that is, platform Republicans, that is, Republicans as being hardliners. Conservative Mary Miller says “I look forward to working with the House Republican Conference to stop Joe Biden’s destructive, radical, leftist agenda.”
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Miller disclosed the outlines of the sweeping agreement. Besides keeping the speaker on a short leash, her group will: Have the power to block the sort of omnibus bill the House and Senate — with GOP support — approved in one of the last major acts of the 117th Congress. Have the power to block an increase in the debt ceiling, with an impasse possibly leading to a government shutdown. Create, as Miller put it, a committee to “investigate the weaponization of the federal government, including the Biden Department of Justice.” Miller, a farmer, who represents the heavily Republican 15th Congressional District in southern Illinois, was raised in suburban Naperville and in November won her second term. She has served on the House Agriculture Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee, but she is best known for her activism fighting against abortion, gun control measures and other hot-button social issues.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of his last acts was voting in favor of a bill that would ban the sale and manufacture of certain high-powered weapons in Illinois. He was the lone Republican to vote for the bill, which the Senate is taking up before the new General Assembly convenes. . .In an interview with NBC 5 Chicago, he also blamed former President Donald Trump for Republican losses. “The Trump factor went too far, and I believe that that was what interrupted part of this red wave,” Durkin said.)
