Most commonly, they promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. I would focus on those in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have most strongly painted themselves as being anti-Diersen. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

— Duckworth blasts President Trump ‘draft dodging wannabe tin-pot dictator’ (DIERSEN: Why doesn’t Duckworth call Biden a draft dodger?)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-lightfoot-reopen-duckworth-police-reform-legislation-ricketts-spin-20200602-ay27b6wz2ngepl6psse3xjmqxm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This isn’t the first time Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran who lost both legs when the helicopter she was piloting was shot down, has accused Trump of being a draft dodger. In 2018, Duckworth referred to Trump as “Cadet Bone Spurs” because he received a deferment during the Vietnam War because of bone spurs in his heels. He received four college deferments as well. White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement: “The senator should check the facts instead of spread lies in an attempt to smear the President. These so-called peaceful protestors were throwing projectiles, climbing onto a historic building, and intelligence had showed they were prepared to escalate. Responding law enforcement followed appropriate procedure to clear the area in preparation for the 7 p.m. curfew and expand the perimeter away from one of our nation’s most historic churches, which crowds attempted to burn the night before. “As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protestors to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans.”)

CITY OF WHEATON
— Wheaton Police Department Evening Community Update
https://www.wheaton.il.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=412
(FROM THE UPDATE: Earlier this evening Governor JB Pritzker signed a disaster proclamation to expedite the use of state resources, personnel and equipment to help municipalities keep residents safe; DuPage County was one of the nine named counties. The Governor also activated an additional 250 members of the Illinois National Guard and over a hundred Illinois State Police Troopers to support various jurisdictions throughout the state in their work to protect communities. Numerous communities surrounding Wheaton have continued to experience increased criminal activity including arson, criminal damage to property and vehicles, the looting of businesses, and some violent crime. Many of Wheaton’s businesses have chosen to board up or reduce their hours of operation during this time. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to protect our community with a heavy patrol presence in our business districts and residential neighborhoods until this ongoing countywide crisis is stabilized. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to be alert for potential threats to the community. If you witness criminal or suspicious activity, the Wheaton Police Department encourages you to get to a safe location and call 9-1-1 for police response.)

— Jacobson sues
https://capitolfax.com/2020/06/01/jacobson-sues/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I don’t think the governor himself handled this very well and I said so at the time. To this day, Jacobson has access to the governor through the pool reporters, like I do, like we all do. Pritzker should’ve made that clear in public. Now her attorneys are trying to cast her as some sort of martyr. I’ve been to press conferences where I couldn’t get my questions answered. I may have already told you this story, but Gov. Blagojevich tried that with me once, so I walked around the room and whispered questions to every Chicago TV reporter there. He had no choice but to answer questions from them. . .Um, she can’t get “back into the room” because access is being limited for everyone right now due to COVID-19. And while Pritzker most certainly disagrees with her points of view, she did speak at a rally in opposition to his stay at home order. That goes well beyond attendance. On the one hand, she’s a show-boating hyper-partisan. On the other, I’ve always been opposed to the government deciding who is and who is not a reporter, although it is indisputable that legislative leaders can limit access to their press boxes based on broad criteria (like working for a lobbying group). On the third hand, if reporters were really upset about this, they would’ve stood up for Jacobson and her access would’ve been restored by now.)

CITY OF WHEATON
— Wheaton Community Update
https://www.wheaton.il.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=410
(FROM THE UPDATE: Many of the communities surrounding Wheaton experienced a high volume of criminal activity at shopping malls, government buildings, and business districts last evening. This disruption also caused public transportation such as CTA and Metra to temporarily suspend services in some areas. While Wheaton’s businesses were not directly affected last evening, the Wheaton Police Department encourages its residents and community members to stay safe by following these safety tips. Expect delayed openings of some area businesses. Check or follow a business’s social media or website for changes to hours of operation. When commuting, travelling, or planning a shopping trip to other neighboring communities check local news to ensure it is safe to do so and the business is open. If you witness criminal or suspicious activity, say something. Get to a safe location and call 9-1-1 for police response. The Wheaton Police Department will continue to maintain an increased presence throughout our community in the coming days and encourages its residents and community members to stay up-to-date by following the City of Wheaton on Facebook, Twitter (@CityOfWheaton), and email updates.)

(THE STATEMENT: “This evening, I stand with Sheriff Mendrick and State’s Attorney Berlin in support of our DuPage County communities. We condemn the actions that resulted in the death of George Floyd and we support people’s right to assemble and peacefully protest. But there is a difference between protesting peacefully and committing criminal acts. Protestors in DuPage County who damage or destroy private or public property, or who commit criminal acts like arson, burglary, and criminal damage to property will be arrested, prosecuted and if found guilty, imprisoned. We have no tolerance for those who would use this tragic occurrence to cause further pain in our community.”)

CITY OF WHEATON
— Wheaton Police Community Safety Alert
https://www.wheaton.il.us/civicalerts.aspx?AID=409
(FROM THE ALERT: The Wheaton Police Department has become aware of several situations in neighboring DuPage County communities where large groups of people are traveling into the area, causing damage, and burglarizing local stores and businesses. Some local businesses have chosen to close early due to this situation out of an abundance of caution for the safety of their employees and customers. The Wheaton Police Department will have an increased presence in the community and will continue to monitor the ongoing situation. The increased presence will remain until the broader situation stabilizes. Additional updates will be released on the City’s Facebook and Twitter accounts as new information becomes available. We would like to encourage our residents and community members to safely report any criminal behavior or any other unusual situation. Please call your local businesses ahead of time to ensure they are still open and operating before travelling to shop or dine. If you encounter a situation or observe criminal behavior, the police department encourages you to leave the area and call 9-1-1 when you are safely able to do so.)

To qualify for the WOTC tax credit, employers must “obtain official confirmation of job applicants’ WOTC eligibility status before” making an offer of employment.)

LEXOLOGY
— Selecting Employees for Recall or Rehire – Shawe Rosenthal (DIERSEN: Overwhelmingly, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) demonize, denigrate, and condemn seniority and b) promote demographics. They promote those who are minority, female, younger, veteran, non-conservative, non-Protestant, non-German American, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, etc. They promote those who promote LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. What seniority do/did you have? I have 20 years seniority as a Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) member and as the GOPUSA ILLINOIS Editor and 6 years as a MTRO webmaster. I have almost 7 years seniority as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, 8 years as a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC) Government Affairs Committee member, 4 years as an Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member, 3 years as an American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Midwest Chapter board member, and 13 years as an Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Chicago Chapter Executive Committee member. In 1997, I had almost 30 years federal seniority – almost 18 years working for GAO, almost 9 years working for IRS, and almost 3 years working for the Post Office. I should write a book about the many similarities between my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) in MTRO, TAPROOT, WCC, ICRC, AAPC, AGA, and b) GAO, IRS, and the Post Office.)
https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=b16b7e14-6c13-4aab-a5b8-78379c8ffbdf
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The traditional selection criteria for layoffs and recalls, commonly specified in collective bargaining agreements, are seniority and ability to perform the job. In a case alleging intentional discrimination, choosing the most senior qualified employee for recall is likely to accepted as a non-discriminatory explanation. Seniority systems can have an adverse impact on groups that were subject to exclusion in the past; however, it is not discriminatory to follow a bona fide seniority system. To be considered a “bona fide seniority system” the system must give primary weight to seniority, be communicated to affected employees and be consistently applied. Nor is it discriminatory to follow a seniority system if it has no adverse impact on any protected group. Many employers believe that seniority should not be a controlling factor, because length of service does not necessarily correlate with employees’ value to them. Employer can choose employees for recall based on any non-discriminatory criteria, such as quality of work, quantity of work, attendance, job related skills, etc. However, management’s subjective impressions about employees are vulnerable to attack on the grounds that they are based on negative stereotypes. It is much safer to rely on performance appraisals that were based on objective criteria and documented.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/trumps-social-media-e-o-would-sabotage-his-reelection-by-deplatforming-himself
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, it’s worth considering just what the ramifications of repealing Section 230 would be. Turns out, it would actually be a very bad thing not just for freedom of expression online, but also for the president’s personal political fortunes. Despite all the confusion and obfuscation from critics, here is how Section 230 actually works. It gives all platforms and publishers alike liability protection for open platform content and allows leeway for moderation. For example, this applies to both Twitter and the New York Times. Legally speaking, a Twitter post’s user is responsible for the content, not Twitter, the same is true in the comments sections of the New York Times.)
