— What’s your why? Share it with your audience to sustain your future. – Jennifer Hefty
https://medium.com/trusting-news/whats-your-why-share-it-with-your-audience-to-sustain-your-future-a070669f317
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do we do it? Why do we work in a highly unstable career with no job security? Why do we cover stories so unimaginably terrible that sometimes all that’s left for us to do at the end of the day is cry? Why do we endure a high-pressure, fast-paced environment with little pay while at the same time dealing with a constant barrage of criticism from those we are trying to serve? (You’ve unfortunately probably heard some of this before: you’re a liberal rag; you’re in Politician X’s pocket; have you EVER even HEARD of a copy editor?) We do it because we care. We do it because our passion for our communities runs deep in our veins. We do it because we feel a responsibility to tell our neighbors’ stories, keep our cities safe and hold our governments accountable. We do it because we can’t imagine doing anything else. Historically, we haven’t been very good at telling the story of our why. But it’s one that is key to sustaining local journalism for years to come. As the news industry continues to face more layoffs, I’ve heard my colleagues ask, “So what can we do? How can we help ensure the future of our news organization?”)

— How the Rural-Urban Divide Became America’s Political Fault Line Such a conflict isn’t unique to the U.S., but the consequences are far-reaching here. – Emily Badger
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/21/upshot/america-political-divide-urban-rural.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the United States, where a party’s voters live matters immensely. That’s because most representatives are elected from single-member districts where the candidate with the most votes wins, as opposed to a system of proportional representation, as some democracies have. Democrats tend to be concentrated in cities and Republicans to be more spread out across suburbs and rural areas. The distribution of all of the precincts in the 2016 election shows that while many tilt heavily Democratic, fewer lean as far in the other direction. As a result, Democrats have overwhelming power to elect representatives in a relatively small number of districts — whether for state house seats, the State Senate or Congress — while Republicans have at least enough power to elect representatives in a larger number of districts. Republicans, in short, are more efficiently distributed in a system that rewards spreading voters across space. . .The median congressional district in America looks ideologically more Republican, Mr. Rodden finds (the median precinct in the chart also voted slightly Republican). And so Democrats have to find a way to win in those places, even as the progressive wing of the party is ascendant and lobbying for control of the party’s message. If Democrats hold on to some suburbs they recently flipped — a possibility as suburbia diversifies and as college-educated whites move toward the Democrats — Republicans could one day be as concentrated in rural areas as Democrats have been in cities. In that situation, one where Republicans pack their votes more tightly in rural America and the median suburban district becomes slightly Democratic, the urban party might actually start to benefit from geographic polarization. But there will still always be the Senate.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190521/buffalo-grove-formally-opposes-legalization-of-recreational-marijuana
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Buffalo Grove has waded into the statewide debate over legalizing recreational marijuana, as a divided village board narrowly passed a resolution against it Monday. Village President Beverly Sussman broke a 3-3 deadlock to pass the resolution, which is modeled after a similar measure approved by Vernon Hills trustees. It urges lawmakers to slow down the process to provide more time to consider the impact on society and examine data from other states that have passed similar legislation.)

AMERICAN GREATNESS
— President Trump Can Win on Race – Karin McQuillan
https://amgreatness.com/2019/05/20/president-trump-can-win-on-race/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The good news for President Trump is that most Americans agree with Republicans about race: that we are all created equal and deserve equal treatment and opportunity. The problem is that far too many Americans believe the lie that Republicans, instead of adhering to these basic truths, are racist. President Trump has the courage to express our views on race. We can win on this issue. Democrats don’t want all citizens to be treated equally. Democrats want people treated differently and according to their skin color. They want group justice. They call it social justice because it sounds better. In their idea of a just America, whites, Asians, and Jews must give up opportunities as a group, and blacks and other people of color must be privileged with extra opportunities and reparations. By their definition, Democrats claim half the country is racist. Understand this: the Democratic Party’s idea of racism is defined by group identity, not by an individual’s behavior or beliefs. You’re not biased? Doesn’t matter. Utterly reject discrimination? Doesn’t matter. White? You’re racist. Democrats believe being colorblind is itself racist. Republicans, who believe laws should be colorblind, are by definition racist.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The services know these dynamics are contributing to retention problems, and the branches have been slowly starting to experiment with different career tracks for, say, pilots, where talent shortages are pronounced. Congress last year offered the branches flexibility to reform an “up or out” system that requires officers to promote through the ranks or leave the service, among other good reforms pioneered by Mr. Kane.)
— Buttigieg Leans In on His Military Service Democrat who has quickly risen to top tier of 2020 field is putting more emphasis on Navy Reserve stint – Joshua Jamerson and Ben Kesling (DIERSEN: Since 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have viciously used against me my seeking and obtaining student draft deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. They stress that while my peers were dying in Vietnam, I drove a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint 1966-1967, a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 1967-1968, a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE 1968-1971, and a new 1972 Corvette since 1971. They stress that while my peers were dying in Vietnam, I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972 and a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974. They stress that while my peers were dying in Vietnam, I earned a bachelor’s degree in 1970 and then took graduate business courses. They stress that while my peers were dying in Vietnam, a) I earned almost 3 years of both Social Security (SS) and Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) credits while I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, b) I earned SS credits while I worked for Firestone Stores 1970-1972, and c) I started earning more CSRS credits working for IRS in 1971.)

DAILY HERALD
— How much money do you need to be wealthy in America? – Suzanne Woolley (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who since 1966, when I was 17 years old, have demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being wealthy. They stressed that in today’s dollars, my part-time Post Office salary was $17.23/hour in 1969, that my IRS salary was $93,592/year in 1980, and that my GAO salary was $127,654/year in 1997. They stressed that at the end of 1977, in today’s dollars, my net worth was $203,600. They stressed the new cars that I bought in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, etc. and the collector cars that I bought in 1989 and 1994. They stressed the real estate that I bought in 1972, 1974, and 1976; the home that my wife and I bought in 1978; and the home that we had built in 1984. They stressed the money that I spent to earn a bachelor’s degree in 1970; master’s degrees in 1976, 1980, and 1997; and professional certifications in 1979 and 1981. They stressed the money that my wife and I saved for our retirement.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20190518/how-much-money-do-you-need-to-be-wealthy-in-america
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Merely having a net worth of $1 million, it seems, doesn’t mean you’re wealthy. In Charles Schwab’s annual Modern Wealth Survey, the amount people said it took to be considered rich averaged out to $2.3 million. That, the company said, is “more than 20 times the actual median net worth of U.S. households.” It’s also a very slight drop from the $2.4 million average in the two previous iterations of the survey. The older one gets, the higher the bar goes, predictably. Among baby boomers (roughly age 55 to 73), the average net worth you need to be considered wealthy is $2.6 million, 35% higher than what millennials envision as the admission price to the plutocracy. For someone to be deemed merely financially comfortable, the required net worth shrinks significantly. The average amount was $1.1 million, and only Generation Z (about age 9 to age 22, though Schwab’s sample was 18 to 22) cited a number below $1 million ($909,600, to be exact.) The Schwab survey, which took a national sample of 1,000 Americans between the ages of 21 and 75, also revealed that the majority of Americans really crave real estate. More than 50% of respondents across generations said that if they got a $1 million windfall, they’d spend it, and the most popular purchase would be a place to live — particularly among millennials (roughly age 22 to 37).)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A growing number of federal appeals courts are recognizing that nefarious employers are using subjective criteria to justify discriminatory hiring decisions. This has been an epic problem for decades in age discrimination litigation, where it is not unusual for workers with objectively superior qualifications to be passed over in favor of candidates who are deemed a better “cultural fit.” This month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit joined four other federal circuits to rule that an employer may not defend a discrimination charge with “vague” and “slippery” reasons because of the “intolerable risk that a nefarious employer will use [them] as a cover for discrimination.” The court said employers must articulate “specific reasons” for employment decisions, such as “the candidate’s ‘seniority, length of service in the same position, personal characteristics, general education, technical training, experience in comparable work or any combination’ of such criteria.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: White and his wife live mostly on the dividends from 62 blue-chip companies, including Coca-Cola, Bristol-Myers, Ford, Verizon, Caterpillar, American Electric Power, Duke Energy, Baxter Labs, Johnson & Johnson and PPG Industries. He also owns a couple of exchange traded funds (ETFs). He said all the holdings have appreciated “a lot,” but he doesn’t plan to sell any because, (a) he doesn’t need the money and (b) selling would create a sizable tax bill. (He hates the “required minimum distribution” that he must take on his tax-deferred retirement accounts because they raise his taxes.) White is fortunate in one respect. His father, who was an engineer with New York Telephone, gave him early training in investing and taught him the value of owning shares in good companies. It took me until I was 40.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Chicago CEOs outrun peers on pay, while employees trail national median The wide pay gap reflects the area’s high concentration of big companies with lots of low-wage workers. – STEVEN R. STRAHLER (DIERSEN: Trump’s salary is only $400,000/year. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary in 1997, when I was 49 years old, was $127,654/year. That pay ratio is only 3.13. If Trump’s salary was adjusted for inflation, it would be $704,687/year today. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn government employees as being overcompensated. My GAO salary would have much lower if I had not earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. My GAO salary would have been much higher if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/news/chicago-ceos-outrun-peers-pay-while-employees-trail-national-median
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The average Jo working at a Chicago public company made 1.3 percent more last year, lifting her median wage to $68,262—barely 1 percent of the middling CEO’s $5.6 million. For the second consecutive year, proxy filings compare CEO compensation to the median-paid employee’s. Excluding a couple of outliers, this so-called pay ratio ranges between 661 and 12 at the 107 local companies reporting so far. Chicago’s median pay ratio rose from 111 to 113.5 in 2018. That’s well above the nationwide median of 74, with a typical local CEO making 14.6 percent more than counterparts around the country. The opposite was true for median-paid workers at Chicago-based companies, who made nearly 20 percent less than the national median of $84,398, which rose faster last year than Chicago’s median.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The College Board plans to add a 1-to-100 “adversity score” to student SAT results, in a well-intentioned attempt to add context to a youngster’s performance on the test and — this is the theory, anyway — encourage schools to admit more high-potential youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds. So far, they’re hiding the formula of how 15 different variables, including a school or neighborhood’s poverty levels, housing stability and crime rates, will be weighed in boiling everything down to a single, simple number. Bad beginning, especially for an institution committed to teaching and learning.)

— In marijuana debate, Decatur city officials would wield power in where pot is sold – ANALISA TROFIMUK (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, if you live in a municipality, please urge the leaders of your municipality, and those who want to be leaders of your municipality, a) to speak out against the marijuana bill in Illinois and b) to commit to voting against the sale of marijuana in your municipality.) 
https://herald-review.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/in-marijuana-debate-decatur-city-officials-would-wield-power-in/article_74dc0cfa-af2a-5dbb-b171-ff3fb1d58186.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Opt out or be open for business? That’s the question Decatur officials will be facing if Illinois lawmakers take the historic step of legalizing recreational marijuana. The legislation, a key campaign issue for Democrat J.B. Pritzker, is being considered by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly in the sprint to the end of session on May 31. The original legislation allowed expungements for cannabis-related convictions. The exact language is still under debate, along with fine-tuning various parts of the plan to meet concerns from law enforcement, current growers and activists. If the proposal survives the growing debate in Springfield, it will be left to municipal officials whether to allow pot dispensaries within their borders. Opting out means losing revenue generated from sales, as well as permit fees.)

https://canadafreepress.com/article/fear-loathing-intolerance-and-worse
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Throughout history despots had effective ways of reducing dissension in the ranks. Inquisitors burned heretics. Nazis burned books—before taking far more extreme measures. Soviets employed famines, gulags, salt mines and executions. ChiComs and other tyrants starved, jailed and murdered millions. Today’s Green New Dealers and their allies have mapped out their own totalitarian strategies. They proclaim themselves socialists, but their economic policies and tolerance for other viewpoints reflect a different form of government—fascism: A political system in which authoritarian government does not own businesses and industries, but strictly regulates and controls their actions, output and rights—while constraining and suppressing citizens and their thought, speech and access to information. . .Twitter routinely engages in similar cold, calculated censorship of views it opposes. Google helps the Chinese government deny its citizens access to “dangerous ideas”—and says nothing when China sends a million Uighur Muslims to “reeducation camps.” Its hard-left employees ostracize any conservatives they still find in their ranks…and claim helping the US Defense Department with Cloud computing or artificial intelligence surveillance would “violate their principles.” Facebook “shadow banned” an ad promoting a Heartland Institute video that called on millennials to reject socialism and embrace capitalism. Facebook censors told Heartland they “don’t support ads for your business model” (capitalism) and would not reveal “red flags” and trade-secret algorithms they use to “identify violations” of their policies and “help preserve the integrity of our internal processes.” Google suppressed Claremont Institute ads for a talk on multiculturalism and political speech restrictions. Twitter routinely engages in similar cold, calculated censorship of views it opposes. Wikipedia posts distorted or false bios for climate realist experts and organizations—labeling me an anti-environment lobbyist—and then pops up ads soliciting money for its biased “educational” material. Securing corrections is a long, often fruitless process. Even more totalitarian, the Southern Poverty Law Center uses phony “hate speech” claims to defund and “deplatform” conservative groups like David Horowitz’s Freedom Center, by pressuring credit card companies to close off donations to them. State attorneys general and members of Congress want to prosecute and jail people for “denying the reality” of “manmade climate cataclysms.” Worst of all, the callous organizations and policies that Big Tech supports cause millions of deaths every year, by denying impoverished nations and families access to the modern energy, insect control and agricultural technologies that its vocal, racist elements loathe.)

Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes blacklist me and blacklist my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://www.wnd.com/2019/05/googles-top-stories-shows-obvious-left-wing-bias-audit-reveals/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Noting that Google’s search algorithm is “perhaps the most powerful mediator of online attention to news,” a team of university scholars conducted an audit that found just 20 news sources account for more than half of article impressions, and most lean left. The top 20 percent of sources — 136 of 678 sampled — accounted for 86 percent of article impressions. And the top three accounted for 23 percent: CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post, according to Assistant Professor Nicholas Diakopoulos and his team at the Computational Journalism Lab at Northwestern. In an article for Columbia Journalism Review, he wrote that “for all the influence Google has in directing attention, we know painfully little about how its algorithm selects and curates news.” “Which sites does it direct traffic toward? And how does Google’s news curation impact the diversity of information found?” he asked. The audit examined Google Top Stories in terms of ideological lean, based on the self-reported political affiliation of Facebook users sharing content from those sources. The team’s data showed that 62.4 percent of article impressions were from sources rated as left-leaning. Just 11.3 percent were from sources rated as right-leaning. “These statistics underscore the degree of concentration of attention to a relatively narrow slice of news sources,” Diakopoulos wrote. . .‘News blacklist’ In April, a newly obtained document showed Google maintains a “news blacklist” and manipulates its search results manually, contrary to the company’s official denials. WND reported in March a Google manager allegedly responded to an employee who questioned the company’s war on “fake news” by arguing that fake news and “hate speech” had to be stopped, because “that’s how Trump won.” In November, the Daily Caller reported Google employees debated whether to bury the reporting of conservative media outlets in the company’s search function in response to Trump’s election. Employees similarly sought to manipulate search results to combat Trump’s travel ban, the communications showed. In an interview with WND at the time, Robert Epstein – who was famed behavioral psychologist B.F. Skinner’s last Ph.D. student at Harvard – said Google’s effort to defeat Trump confirms his extensive, peer-reviewed research over the past half decade. “Not only does Google have the power to shift votes and opinions on a massive scale, they actually use that power,” Epstein said. During the 2016 election campaign, Epstein concluded that Google heavily biased results in favor of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, possibly shifting as many as 3 million votes. A video leaked in September showed Google executives at their first weekly meeting after Trump’s election exhibiting panic and dismay while expressing their determination to thwart the new administration’s agenda as well as the emerging global populist movement.)

https://abc7chicago.com/society/asian-influences/5294606/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Another political trailblazer is Judge Kenneth Moy. Moy was the first Asian American elected to County office in Illinois.. and he went on to take ‘the bench’ in DuPage County. But in his retirement years, his focus has really become ‘giving back’! Moy has long funded scholarships through the DuPage Foundation.. and recently, he gave $2 million to a place that is an important refuge for more than 300 residents. At DuPage Care Center in Wheaton, 70% of the residents are Medicaid recipients. It also happens to be the special place where Judge Moy’s wife resides, Patricia Moy has battled Alzheimer’s disease for 8 years. The Care Center plans to make a host of renovations with the new funds. To honor their benefactor, the new name of the facility is the Kenneth Moy DuPage Care Center.)

https://www.wthitv.com/content/news/Clark-County-council-members-plan-to-ban-marijuana-dispensaries-if-state-passes-law–510090151.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker legalizes recreational marijuana, Clark County will ban dispensaries in their backyard. It was a unanimous decision made Friday morning by the Clark County Council. They plan to draft a resolution against the law. Some say by keeping the community together and on the same page, they’ve been able to keep illegal things out. That includes drugs and crime. News 10 spoke with members of the community who attended the meeting. They told us that Clark County has a low crime rate. A few spoke out. One man told us that no one in the community is wanting this legalization. “There’s no public outcry to legalize this stuff,” said Warren LeFever, a concerned citizen. This law has not been passed yet. County Council members say they are being proactive rather than reactive.)

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/illinois-republicans-push-to-turn-chicago-into-its-own-state
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The outlet reports that a resolution calling on Congress to declare Chicago America’s 51st state now has eight Republican co-sponsors in the state’s House, as well as growing support from conservative activists. Supporters of the move have noted that Chicago is where much of the state’s political power and money rests, and its politics are different than other more conservative parts of the state. The sponsor of the bill, state Rep. Brad Halbrook, said he supports the split due to differences on issues such as the Second Amendment and abortion. “Our traditional family values seem to be under attack at every angle,” Halbrook said, according to The State Journal-Register. “We are trying to drive the discussion to get people at the table to say these are not our values down here.”)

DAILY HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Tollway Executive Director José Alvarez took an $18,996 (8%) pay cut for his new position. In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I took a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and 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 $82,579-$93,592.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190517/new-tollway-chief-wants-to-hear-from-stakeholders-on-route-53
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Executive Director José Alvarez, who attended his first board meeting Thursday, will be paid $223,000 annually, 3.7% more than his predecessor Elizabeth Gorman, who received $215,000. “I took a pay cut. That’s how excited I am about the opportunity” to work at the tollway, said Alvarez, former chief operating officer for the Chicago Housing Authority. Alvarez joins a rookie tollway board picked by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who supported the ouster of the previous slate of directors after a series of Daily Herald reports about tollway spending and patronage hiring at the agency. Alvarez “came in on May 1 and hit the ground running,” Chairman Will Evans said at Thursday’s meeting. “I am committed to investing in our team and building on its strengths,” Alvarez said. He likened the tollway’s situation to the housing authority, which had “five CEOs in five years.” Former tollway Executive Director Greg Bedalov, who was paid $186,000, left in February 2018 and Gorman stayed for 13 months.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Pelosi’s disgraceful weaseling on merit-based immigration – Thomas Lifson (DIERSEN: Democrats want immigrants because immigrants vote for Democrats. RINOs want immigrants because RINOs want cheap labor.) 
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/05/pelosis_disgraceful_weaseling_on_meritbased_immigration.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Common sense and public opinion both strongly favor prioritizing immigrants who bring education and skills to the country, so that they can support themselves and provide more tax payments than they consume in the form of welfare and other need-based services. Few questions of public policy receive support in the eighty percent range, yet merit-based immigration actually does receive nearly 80% in reliable polling. . .The entire point of immigration policy is to benefit the citizens of the United States. Forcing citizens to pay for the welfare and government services consumed by poor families entering with children (who will need expensive bilingual schooling), and who will generate few taxes but consume large tax revenues if they bring low education and skill credentials, enacts a penalty on American citizens.)

— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: Politics Takes a Toll on the Trump Family Business – Eric Lipton and Steve Eder (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the toll that my being a Republican has cost me.

Davis (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted the loudest since 1948 that I should pay lots of reparations, that is, that I should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion. They stress/stressed that I am White, male, old (born in 1948), Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, non-poor, married, no children or pets to support, retired for more than 21 years, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844, etc.)
