— Wanted: Young People To Work The Polls This November – Barbara Sprunt (DIERSEN: What do you stress to those who question your age and health? I stress that nothing has stopped me from putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email a) each and every morning since 2004 and b) each and every evening too since 2015. Those emails have included links to more than 375,200 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
https://www.wbez.org/stories/wanted-young-people-to-work-the-polls-this-november/34b76fd0-0bff-4671-8131-6df2952b5f19
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most poll workers are over 60 Weiss’ group is just one effort to find new poll workers for the general election. In an unusual partnership, entities including Comedy Central, the Fair Elections Center, Patagonia, Uber and Levi Strauss & Co. are recruiting poll workers. “It really does speak to the level of concern that all of these folks who normally aren’t on the same side of things see the need to come together and solve this big problem,” says Scott Duncombe, who’s heading a new initiative called Power the Polls. Through digital marketing, Power the Polls aims to recruit 250,000 new poll workers on behalf of its partner organizations, most of which fall under Civic Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of businesses. Civic Alliance is encouraging its members to provide paid time off for employees who elect to staff poll locations. According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 58% of poll workers in the 2018 general election were over 60, an age that is linked to a higher risk for complications with COVID-19. A shortage of election workers plagued some early primary states, and election experts fear a massive shortage for the general election. “We’re talking about enormous numbers of poll workers who are not going to feel comfortable, and already have shown it in the primary, being in the polling places in the midst of a pandemic when they have concerns about their health,” says Bob Brandon, president of the Fair Elections Center. Brandon says even in normal times, convincing people to sign up to staff the polls can be challenging. It’s usually a 12-hour-plus day, with minimal pay and a fair amount of stress. Add in all the health concerns a pandemic brings, and it’s even harder to attract new workers. And although voting by mail is expected to increase dramatically this fall, Brandon says robust, in-person voting remains essential. “If you have a disability that requires you to be on an accessible machine to vote, you need to be there in person,” he says. “If you’re in a community that has terrible mail service, which many poor communities complain of, that’s an important need. Many people in the African American community have a distrust of anything different than taking a ballot and putting it into a machine, because of the history of voter suppression that they’ve encountered.” Brandon adds, “We can’t allow the lack of poll workers to mean there’ll be a lack of opportunities for people to vote in person, which will only lead to longer lines and other problems that ultimately mean fewer people vote.”)

FEDERAL TIMES
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: Degree requirements are on the way out for federal jobs – Jessie Bur (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. In 1971, when I was 22 year old, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have hired me if I had not had earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (in management) in 1970. In 1972, 1973, and 1974, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have promoted me if I had not been taking job-related (business) graduate courses. In 1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me if I had not earned a job-related master’s degree (in business) in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and almost completed the requirements for my second job-related (in accounting) master’s degree. In 1986, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have promoted me if I had not completed the requirements for my a second job-related (accounting) master’s degree in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981. The Democrats who ran GAO would have succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” sooner than they did if I had not become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant in 1990 and if I had not completed the requirements for my third job-related (finance) master’s degree in 1997.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The resolution calls for several remedies. Among them, changing the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day; including Juneteenth on district calendars as a holiday; seeking out other groups represented in the community to ensure other important cultural holidays are noted on district calendars; developing curriculum and policies that are racially and culturally relevant; considering offering College African-American History as a general education course rather than an elective; examining art and imagery in district buildings and removing any that is deemed offensive; additional training for employees; aggressive recruitment of teachers and staff that reflect the racial makeup of the student body and community. Additionally, the board directed the superintendent to prepare an annual report on the academic achievement and discipline of minority students as a group, including educational outcomes, while protecting privacy rights, a report on successes inside and outside the classroom, and to track complaints of racial bias from employees, students and parents, including the resolutions. The discipline policies will be reviewed and updated with input from students and school resource officers and that will accompany the annual review of the contract with the school resource officers as the board considers their role.)

ELMHURST PATCH
— DuPage Officials Get Facts Wrong In Heated Debate Over Raises The sheriff cited attacks at Oak Brook mall, but there were none. A board member said she had heard of no looting, despite media reports. – David Giuliani
https://patch.com/illinois/elmhurst/dupage-officials-get-facts-wrong-heated-debate-over-raises
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During a heated June 9 finance committee meeting, DuPage County board member Ashley Selmon, D-Addison, accused Sheriff James Mendrick, a Republican, of “irresponsible rhetoric” about “looting and sledgehammers” that led Elmhurst and Addison to board up businesses amid a wave of Black Lives Matter protests across the county and around the country. Mendrick took exception, saying the sledgehammers and looting were facts, not rhetoric. “It’s an insult that you say that there were just peaceful demonstrations,” he told Selmon. “I am sorry, but they were not. We were being attacked at Oak Brook Mall. That’s just a fact. I was there. My staff was there. Don’t belittle what we just did for this county.” The exchange happened during a debate about “equity” raises — possibly as high as $25,000 — for sheriff’s department employees, and Patch found that neither Selmon nor Mendrick was entirely correct. According to police reports, there was no attack on officers or anybody else at Oak Brook Center mall on May 31 or in the days following, only minor property damage. According to Oak Brook police, a brick was thrown at a Neiman Marcus store window around 11 a.m. that day, causing a dozen punctures to the glass. A witness saw six men involved in the incident, but they sped away, according to police. In one case, police did report seeing a sledgehammer in plain view in a car’s back seat, according to a sheriff’s department after-action report. According to the report, officers tried to stop a number of cars at the mall that night, with some passengers mocking or swearing at officers and others fleeing from police. In an interview, sheriff’s department spokesman Justin Kmitch said when the sheriff mentioned “attacks,” he was referring to a number of instances in the days leading up to the committee meeting. “There were no physical assaults of officers at Oak Brook,” Kmitch said. “Protecting the mall was everyone’s priority out there.” He noted the sheriff set up a command center at the mall, which he called the “crown jewel of the DuPage County economy.” At the committee meeting, Selmon said she and other county board members had received regular reports of the protests around DuPage County from the county’s homeland security department. “Unless I’m illiterate, we did not get a single report of anything categorized as looting in this county,” she said. While she may not have received a report, it’s also inaccurate to say there were no cases of looting in the county. About a week before the meeting, more than 30 stores were looted and 11 people arrested in Naperville, according to police and media reports. The looting started around 9 p.m., following a peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration that had been held earlier in the day, according to Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall. The sheriff’s department report on the incident said “large explosive devices” were thrown at police officers, and at least one bystander was stabbed while trying to help police, according to Marshall. About the same time, stores in Downers Grove and Aurora were also looted, according to media reports. According to the sheriff’s after-action report, officers in a number of instances also found people with weapons near protests. In Roselle, for instance, a car stopped near a demonstration contained two rifles, six handguns, body armor and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, the report said. And in Elmhurst, police took into custody a man who was seen arriving at a June 1 protest with a rifle, bag, helmet and body armor, according to police. In an email, Selmon said that after the June 9 committee meeting, she and others were able to get more complete information both from the state’s attorney and the sheriff’s office. “As I said, the Homeland Security reports did not indicate those events, but the further information we received did elaborate and confirm a more complete picture, including some incidents of looting/theft/burglary, as was seen in other communities and nationally,” Selmon said. “Similarly, the events were, and thankfully continue to be, overwhelmingly peaceful.” The county board approved the raises for the sheriff’s department employees. Selmon and fellow Democrat Liz Chaplin, whose district includes Elmhurst, dissented.)

— Of Course, the GOP Thinks Fact-Checkers Are Biased Americans will never be able to settle policy differences if we can’t even acknowledge a baseline of truth. – Nancy LeTourneau (DIERSEN: QUESTION: What qualifications do I have to be a fact checker? ANSWER: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year, I increasingly worked as a referencer, that is, as a fact checker. That work required assuring the accuracy and support for each and every word, number, table, graph, chart, conclusion, opinion, and recommendation in GAO reports. I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. My other fact checking qualifications include my becoming a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979.)

Approximately 40 residents showed their support for their community as a Black Lives Matter rally drew about 25 to 30 people who were chanting and holding signs. Momence resident Steve Gross said he was hoping to get inside the city council meeting to talk about this weekend’s upcoming community garage sales. The meeting space had reached capacity limits and members of the public were admitted in turns. “People need to be responsible and stuff, but I couldn’t even get in to address anything with all this,” Gross said. “Actually, I had somebody engage me and be aggressive toward me. … It’s super unfortunate.” The protesters were on the sidewalk just east of the City Hall entrance, while the town supporters remained on the west side of the entrance. There were a couple skirmishes. At 8 p.m. police squad cars from St. Anne, Grant Park, two from Manteno and one from Kankakee County Sheriff’s department arrived and parked on West Washington Street. Those officers joined four officers from the Momence Police department who were there for crowd control and to keep peace. “You’ve got some people who are being hotheads, and some people are reasonable,” Gross said. Mayor Chuck Steele was in attendance and presided over the council after missing the previous two meetings due to his wife’s illness. The protesters have voiced their displeasure of Steele regarding statements he made about a June 9 BLM march in Momence and his calling for Alderwoman Rebekah Cope-Evers’ resignation because she attended the event. The protesters were chanting “Black Lives Matter,” “Momma, I can’t breathe” and holding signs that read “No justice, No Peace,” and “Make Racism Wrong Again.” A couple of the residents who showed up in support of their community were holding signs that read “We Support Our Mayor & Police,” and others were carrying the American flag and “Back the Blue” signs. “We love our mayor,” one resident said. “I’m here to just support my town,” Momence resident Michael Quirk said. “I think just like everyone else, everyone is fed up with all the protests and stuff, and I think the mayor took offense when that happened. I think he took it to heart because he knows that this isn’t a racist town. There’s no bigotry or anything, and it just got spun out and everyone took their opportunity.” Several people spoke during the citizen forum portion of the meeting, including Julia McDonald, of Kankakee, who asked the mayor for a public apology. “We ask that you let go of your defensiveness and instead open your eyes and your ears,” she said in part. “Listen to people when they have something to say on these streets, whether you agree with them or not.” Normon Davis, a Black Momence resident, spoke during the forum in support of Steele, who he has known for 24 years. Davis said he grew up in the housing projects in Chicago. “In no way does he deserve the title of racist,” Davis said. “… He’s shown a lot of generosity throughout the community. Over the 24 years he’s shown without words his compassion and his love for the community. “Being reared in the housing projects, I know firsthand what true racism is, and Mayor Chuck Steele does not fit the bill.” After he addressed the council, Davis said residents support Steele. “Momence is one of the most peaceful towns that you’ll encounter in the United States,” Davis said. “We’re a small community. … The bottom line is this right here — get to know someone before you pass judgment.” During the mayor’s report during the council meeting, Steele said he and Police Chief Brian Brucato attended the NAACP law enforcement meeting in July in Kankakee. “Brian has already signed the 10 Shared Principles, and we will be getting posters of that made up,” Steele said. “We will be bringing that to the council next meeting to have the council approve it also.” The 10 Shared Principles are measures designed to build trust between law enforcement and communities of color. The Momence Police will also adopt the #8cantwait de-escalation initiatives for police. “For the most part we already do most of everything that’s on there, and I support our police department 100 percent,” said Steele, who declined to comment any further after the meeting.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the basic tasks of the political Left, not only in contemporary America but on a worldwide basis ever since the French Revolution, is to identify those social institutions that are healthy and functional, then ruin them completely, and call this result “reform.” Sometimes millions of people die as a result of the Left’s appetite for “reform” (e.g., collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union), but always innocent people are made to suffer on behalf of the allegedly idealistic motives of the self-anointed progressive “reformers.” Scarcely half a century ago, America’s system of higher education was the envy of the world, but that was before the Left instituted the kind of “reform” that produces unemployed Gender Studies majors saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in student-loan debt for degrees that don’t qualify them for any gainful employment. If you criticize the Left’s hegemonic influence in academia, of course, you will be accused of being “anti-intellectual,” as though leftists have a natural right to define the purpose, content, and structure of intellectual endeavor; anyone who doesn’t share the Left’s values is thereby disqualified from participation in academia. Our universities now exist not to provide young people with useful knowledge and career skills, but rather to indoctrinate them with the Left’s destructive belief system and train them to become political activists. Anyone who dissents from this agenda — even such eminent scholars as University of Pennsylvania Law Professor Amy Wax — becomes persona non grata on campus. As Thomas Sowell once remarked, “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.” Joe Biden has no clue about the Left’s agenda for America’s future because, let’s face it, the Democratic Party’s nominee has no clue about anything. Clearly in an advanced stage of senile dementia, Biden is a sock-puppet mindlessly repeating left-wing rhetoric written for him by young progressive staffers. The addled geriatric is being used as a “moderate” Trojan Horse to advance the agenda of a party whose ideological center of gravity is somewhere in a range between Nicolás Maduro and Pol Pot. Everyone can see the bait-and-switch charade Democrats are attempting to perpetrate. However, the national news media — another institution that the Left has completely ruined — are doing their darnedest to pretend not only that Joe Biden is a sentient and credible candidate for president, but that he is so overwhelmingly popular he’ll win in a landslide. The one question the media don’t want Americans to contemplate is what will happen if indeed Landslide Joe is elected. Because the Left — that is to say, the radicals who actually control the Democratic Party, and who would be empowered by Biden’s election — has some mighty ambitious plans for “reform.”)

— Who Is Black Lives Matter? – Jerry Dunleavy
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/who-is-black-lives-matter
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fact is, “black lives matter” is a matter of common decency entirely separate from the activist, ideological, left-wing agenda of the BLM group. That organization has stated aims that go far beyond addressing police brutality. Its goals include, without apology, the upending of American society. Yet it has gained massively more attention, support, and money since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis police custody. It is therefore important that the public, much of which thinks that by supporting BLM, they are backing obviously decent and humane reforms, knows enough to make the distinction between the idea and the ideologues hijacking it. The co-founders of Black Lives Matter are avowed Marxists. At least one names a convicted cop killer among her heroes. A key mentor in building and shaping the group is a two-time vice presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA. The national organization is financially supported through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist. A 2017 report from Black Lives Matter describes its founders, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, and Opal Tometi, as “three radical Black organizers.” The women espouse Marxism and openly push radical identity politics.)

Here’s How to Prepare – Suzanne Woolley and Jack Pitcher (DIERSEN: QUESTION: What could I have done to discourage my Democrat GAO superiors from forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old? ANSWER: First, not becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 years old that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. Second, not opposing their political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

ABC7
— Chicago students march for policy change in schools, universities
https://abc7chicago.com/students-strike-back-march-for-policy-change/6348398/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Students from across Chicago took to the streets demanding the removal of police from schools and universities. Thousands gathered in downtown Chicago near State Street and Jackson Boulevard Saturday night, sometimes blocking entire intersections. The group, called “Students Strike Back,” is also calling for colleges and universities to refuse to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In early July, ICE announces students on visas must leave US or transfer to another college if their schools go online-only. It creates an urgent dilemma for thousands of international students who became stranded in the U.S. last spring after the coronavirus forced their schools to move online. Those attending schools that are staying online must “depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction,” according to the guidance. They also say they are marching for more medical and mental health resources in their communities.)

MILWAUKEE INDEPENDENT
— NOT A RADICAL IDEA: THE UNITED STATES HAS PREVIOUSLY PAID REPARATIONS FOR THE SINS OF ITS PAST (DIERSEN: How much reparations do your critics/opponents want you to pay and why? My critics/opponents want me to pay lots of reparations because I am conservative, Republican, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, heterosexual, married, childless, 100% German American, baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, draft avoider, gun owner, lived in Crete 1948-1972, lived in Wheaton since 1978, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. I should write a book about those who have focused on making me pay reparations, that is, making me pay the price of Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination. I would focus on Democrat and RINO elected officials and party leaders and my Democrat superiors in the federal government. In my defense, I have already paid lots of reparations. AA, Diversity, Inclusion, up-or-out, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination are reparations. Democrats and RINOs use AA, Diversity, Inclusion, up-or-out, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, to get rid of Republicans. My Democrat superiors in the federal government would/should say that they took adverse actions against me to make me pay reparations. My Democrat GAO superiors would/should stress that they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors would/should stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors would/should stress that they forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. My aforesaid Democrat superiors would/should stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were Black.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats have recruited one of their most diverse slate of candidates for a prized program that targets top flip opportunities across the country. Of the 31 members of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC) Red to Blue program, 26 are women and 12 are people of color. Earning a spot provides candidates with a boost, including extra attention from national Democrats and access to expanded resources and fundraising opportunities. Wins by the recruits would add to what is already the most diverse House majority in history after Democrats took over the chamber in 2018 with a class that included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kansas), who was among the first Native American women in Congress.)

I would focus on the aforesaid who hint/hinted, imply/implied, argue/argued, shout/shouted that I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. Better yet, I should sue them.)
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8584963/ANDREW-ROBERTS-Dissenters-live-fear-debate-silenced-woke-mob.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s a response worthy of 1960s China and the groveling apologies forced upon the victims of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. But that would be appropriate, because a cultural revolution is exactly what is taking place in today’s America, where the woke mob has surrounded the citadels of democracy – newspapers, magazines, television stations and, of course, universities. Dissenters live in fear. Serious debate is all but silenced. A recent survey published by the respected Cato Institute reveals that 62 per cent of Americans say today’s political climate prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find their views offensive. Just think about that: an overwhelming majority of Americans – across all political persuasions –have political opinions that they are afraid to share. It is positively Orwellian. How long until the same thing happens here – if it has not already? Even liberals are afraid, with a majority – 52 per cent – feeling they have to self-censor before speaking or writing. The same applies to 64 per cent of people who consider themselves moderates, and 77 per cent of conservatives. These numbers are higher than they have ever been – representing a true threat to democracy. And even more worrying for those who value the future of openness and political diversity is the intolerance of the young, who are driving so much of this frightening new trend. Forty four per cent of Americans under 30 support firing company executives if it is discovered they privately donate their own money to President Trump. Fifty per cent of people who call themselves strong liberals support firing Trump donors from their jobs. This tide of aggression towards people who merely happen to hold opposing views cannot be written off as a blip, for it is clearly part of a wider trend that has engulfed other Western nations.)

NEWSWEEK
— Charges Announced for 17 People After Rockford Protests Over Two Days – MATT KEELEY (DIERSEN: If there have been no Back the Blue rallies in your municipality, why is that? In your municipality, how strong/threatening are the BLMers and LGBTQers, that is, how strong/threatening are the Democrats in your municipality?)
https://www.newsweek.com/charges-announced-17-people-after-illinois-protests-over-two-days-1522193
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Police in Rockford, Illinois announced charges Saturday for 17 people arrested during protests over two straight days. On Friday, 11 protesters were arrested after a small protest blocking East State Street, according to WTVO. Then Saturday, an additional six protesters were arrested during a counterprotest at a “Back the Blue” rally in support of police. Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea, Winnebago County Sheriff Gary Caruana, and State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross held a press conference Saturday afternoon announcing the charges. Six of the protesters were charged with mob action alone, while three more were charged with mob action and resisting arrest. Other charges included aggravated battery to a police officer, disorderly conduct, obstruction of police officers, damage to property and resisting a police officer. “The First Amendment is very clear. It does not give unbridled freedom to infringe on the rights of others,” Ross said. Former Democratic State Rep. Litesa Wallace shared a video in which she said she raised about $2,000 from her supporters to pay the bond for six of those arrested on Friday. “I am exhausted—which doesn’t say a lot because I didn’t do a lot today. I can only imagine how tired and exhausted the individuals who were arrested are. And I can only imagine how tired and exhausted people who are older than me are, who have been in this fight and wanting justice and equality for decades upon decades,” she said. . .The Friday protest was over the treatment of protesters during a May 30 demonstration in Rockford responding to the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Protesters alleged that the Rockford Police used excessive force. An internal investigation by police announced Wednesday that it had found no evidence of wrongdoing by the officers. About 20 protesters announced several demands on Friday, including that the city drop all charges against demonstrators involved in the May 30 protest, and that the police hire an outside investigator to determine whether excessive force was used.)

https://www.wifr.com/2020/08/01/arrests-made-after-protesters-police-clash-after-back-the-blue-rally/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At least 100 attendees of a pro-police rally in downtown Rockford were met by anti-police protesters Saturday morning. The groups Concerned Citizens for America of Northern Illinois and the Illinois Family Institute held the rally at the Winnebago County Justice Center, at 650 W. State Street in downtown Rockford. Rep. John Cabello (R-68th) and former Rep. Jim Sacia (R-89th) spoke at the rally which was held to “Support all men and women in law enforcement and the amazing, vital, and dangerous work they do to protect our communities and country from lawlessness and evil.” This comes following a protest on Friday evening, where nine protesters were taken into custody and later charged. However, former Illinois Rep. Litesa Wallace raised money to help bond out those arrested Friday night.)

— Veep hopeful Duckworth gets star turn—on Fox As Joe Biden nears a decision on his running mate, the Illinois senator makes an unusual pitch. – GREG HINZ (DIERSEN: During 2006, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shouted at Roskam that my serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor, the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, and an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member was going to cause him to lose to Duckworth. During 2018, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shouted at Roskam that my serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor was going to cause him to lose to Casten. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. Better yet, I should sue them. During 2020, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shouted at Ives that my serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor was going to cause her to lose to Casten.

AMERICAN THINKER
— Seattle is apparently implementing Maoist training for white employees – Andrea Widburg (DIERSEN: Are you White? Are you a racist? If YOU are White, how soon will Illinois, your county, your township, and/or your municipality force YOU to admit that YOU are racist? Ever-increasingly, states, counties, townships, municipalities, organizations, companies, their operatives, and their dupes make it clear to Whites that they will be gotten rid if they do not admit to being racists.)
https://employment.einnews.com/article_detail/523037205/8Hn9_brd4ZLerKXz
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There’s a new Jim Crow afoot in America. Once again, it’s coming from the Democrats, but this time, instead of pitting whites against blacks, it’s pitting blacks against whites. Beleaguered white people technically have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 at their back but, in the witch hunt atmosphere currently prevailing in America, it’s unclear whether they’ll have the courage to use it. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t mince words. It exists to outlaw discrimination based upon a person’s race, color, religion, sex, or country of national origin. It explicitly expands these protections to employment programs. Under Title VII, “It shall be an unlawful employment practice for any employer, labor organization, or joint labor-management committee controlling apprenticeship or other training or retraining, including on-the-job training programs to discriminate against any individual because of his race, color, religion, sex, or national origin in admission to, or employment in, any program established to provide apprenticeship or other training. (42 U.S. Code §2000e-2(d).)” The City of Seattle has put a program in place for its 10,000 employees. There are special whites-only aspects of the program. In the “white only” portions of the program, whites must admit that they are racist (and, presumably, any refusal is more proof of racism), and then they must have that racism trained out of them. Christopher Rufo has obtained the materials for the segregated “whites only” training. Trying to summarize the material falls far short of showing the immensity of this Title VII violation, so I’ve embedded all of the tweets below.)
