April 22 Morning Edition

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— HRO upheaval and a GOP feud – Shia Kapos (DIERSEN: Disgustingly, outrageously, tragically, and ever-increasingly, Illinois Republicans first learn from Democrat news sources like Capitol Fax and Politico Illinois what Illinois Republican Party (IRP) leaders are saying and doing. Far too often, it looks like IRP leaders are taking direction from Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout to keep Illinois Republicans including Dave Diersen and his GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails “out of the loop.”) 
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/04/22/hro-upheaval-and-a-gop-feud-newman-hits-a-roadblock-meister-wants-a-rematch-427112
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After losing six House seats in the 2018 general election, the House Republican Organization is reorganizing its leadership team and ramping up fundraising. Political Director Joe Woodward, a confidante and friend to House GOP Leader Jim Durkin, is out, according to a memo Durkin and new HRO Chair Tony McCombie sent Saturday to caucus members and obtained by POLITICO. Woodward is moving to the private sector, and HRO has hired Jayme Odom with the new title: executive director. “We’re bringing in additional fundraisers and plan to be more aggressive with members on their own fundraising with the organization,” Durkin told POLITICO. The changes come after re-evaluating the 2018 losses. “When you have a multi-billionaire writing checks, it’s difficult,” Durkin said, referring, of course, to Gov. J.B. Pritzker‘s backing of so many Dem candidates. “We have to be more self-sufficient.” GOP Rep. Mark Batinick (97th) says the GOP caucus has done “much introspection” on its campaign strategy leading up to 2020. “Only through a thorough self-examination can we fully improve. Not only is it OK to question everything, it’s what any organization should do from time to time,” he told POLITICO. Republican campaign coffers remain a fraction of their Democratic counterparts. The HRO, which has a fundraiser planned April 29, has $38,000 cash on hand, compared to the Democratic Majority’s $3.4 million. Durkin, meanwhile, has $900,000 on hand while House Speaker Mike Madigan sits on $7.4 million. Odom, HRO’s new executive director, meanwhile, is a familiar player in Illinois politics. She previously was chief of staff for the Illinois Lottery during Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration. During that time, a state investigation found Odom failed to disclose her connection to lobbyists for a company vying for a lucrative lottery contract. Odom then left for Ohio, where she helped manage Jim Renacci’s unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign last year. Odom also worked as executive director for the Illinois Republican Party from 2013-2015. GOP drama part 2: Some GOP lawmakers are criticizing that political operative David Walsh was paid for consulting for Citizens for Durkin and for Majority Strategies — a national firm that also does political mailings for the HRO. The payments to Walsh by Majority Strategies were not publicly disclosed, according to a WCIA report last week. Durkin says Walsh was paid out of his campaign fund — not by HRO — and that Walsh’s work with Majority Strategies “is independent” of any work with HRO. One downstate Republican, per an interview with POLITICO, is hoping for an investigation to clear up the murkiness. And state Rep. Dave McSweeney, also in an interview, accused Durkin of paying “his buddy” Walsh instead of putting money toward House races. He even called on Durkin to step down. GOP drama part 3: Yep, there’s a feud between McSweeney and Durkin that goes beyond campaign cash. Last week, the House GOP leader pulled McSweeney’s communications aide after McSweeney spoke out against Rep. Steve Reick for a racially tinged comment about a bill requiring company boards to diversify. Reick later apologized. McSweeney paid to promote a tweet condemning Reick’s comment. In a statement to POLITICO, Durkin said: “This is an internal caucus matter. I will continue working to move the Republican Party and House Republican caucus forward in Illinois but will not tolerate public attacks on fellow members.”)

— The Case Against Early Retirement Many people dream of leaving the office as soon as they can. But the evidence suggests a lot of downsides. It may be time to rethink those dreams. – Richard W. Johnson (DIERSEN: I should write a book about early retirement.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-case-against-early-retirement-11555899000
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most people look forward to retirement, a reward for decades of hard work. But like many other pleasures, it may be bad for your health. It may even kill you. How can that be? How can working longer be good for your health? After all, many people dream of—and plan for—retiring early. Strenuous, stressful work can wear people down and damage their health. On the other hand, retirees can relax and reinvigorate themselves. They have time to follow their passions and pursue activities that enrich their lives. But in our rush to leave the office, we don’t realize that retirement also has a downside, especially over the long term. Many retirees indulge in unhealthy behaviors. They become sedentary and watch too much television. They eat too much. They drink too much. They smoke too much. Without the purpose of fulfilling work, retirees can feel adrift and become depressed. Without the camaraderie of their co-workers, retirees risk becoming socially isolated. Without the intellectual stimulation that work can provide, retirement can accelerate cognitive decline.)
— You’ve Decided to Retire. Whom Do You Tell and When? Preparation and timing can be key to making a graceful exit from the workplace – Matthew Kassel (DIERSEN: Federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who did not get promoted into the Senior Executive Service (currently $166,500/year) are expected/forced to retire as soon as they become eligible.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/youve-decided-to-retire-who-do-you-tell-and-when-11555599575

— FRONT PAGE: Small-Time Crimes a Dealbreaker for Banking Jobs Banks want changes to law preventing them from hiring employees with certain criminal records – Lalita Clozel (DIERSEN: Your past predicts your future.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/small-time-crimes-a-dealbreaker-for-banking-jobs-11555851720
— An Obituary Writer Writes One for Himself Summing up other people’s lives has given me a sense of what I want to say—and why it’s important to say it now – James R. Hagerty (DIERSEN: Are you trying to do and how is it working out? I am trying to get the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee to defend and advance all the planks in the IRP and Republican Party platforms, including their tradition family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. Obviously, it is not working out very well. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes blame that on me.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/an-obituary-writer-writes-one-for-himself-11555683563
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Instead, I will attempt to answer the three things I try to convey when writing someone else’s obituary: What was he trying to do? Why? And how did it work out?)

— States Tempt Recent College Graduates With Student-Loan Payoffs Debt-forgiveness legislation picks up speed as states get creative in filling workforce gaps – Michelle Hackman (DIERSEN: I achieved my goal of graduating from NIU debt-free in 1970. But that required me to work many hours for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969 and miss “dormitory life” by living with my parents in Crete during my first 2 years at UIC 1966-1968 and weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/states-tempt-recent-college-graduates-with-student-loan-payoffs-11555772400

REUTERS
— How college students can find jobs – without much work experience – Chris Taylor (DIERSEN: What work experience did you have when you earned your bachelor’s degree? I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. I had a) done yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; b) washed dishes 1964-1966; c) cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; d) delivered mail 1966-1969; and e) worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

FORBES
— Increase The Odds That You Can Continue Working In Your Retirement Years – Steve Vernon (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that getting a job in the private sector was the real reason why I earned a) a bachelor’s degree in management when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications in public accounting, internal auditing, fraud examination, government financial management, financial services auditing, and forensic accounting when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license in public accounting when I was 32.)

— In a Hot Jobs Market, Bosses Have to Train Their Low-Paid Staff – Shelly Hagan and Carlyann Edwards (DIERSEN: Both IRS and GAO provided me with lots of on-the-job and classroom training. But my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors wasted what I learned from that training and what I learned earning a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970, b) job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, and c) job-related professional certifications when I was 30 and 32.)

— Consortium organizes to battle Pritzker’s graduated income tax plan – Jake Griffin (DIERSEN: When will conservative and Republican groups organize to battle Pritzker’s pot plan? From what I see, ever-increasingly, a) Libertarians exploit the Republican Party’s “big tent” philosophy, b) Libertarians falsely claim to be conservative and/or Republican, c) Libertarian plants gain leadership positions in the Republican Party, and d) those Libertarian plants use those leadership positions to get rid of conservatives and Republicans like me. I should write a book about past and present Libertarian plants who held/hold leadership positions in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants, City of Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Liberal hypocrisy about sanctuary cities – Star Parker (DIERSEN: If Starbucks wanted to build a coffee shop in your precinct, how would the following voters in your precinct react: those who are a) rich, b) middle class, c) poor, d) Democrats, e) Libertarians, f) Greens, g) RINOs, and h) Republicans?) 
https://www.daily-journal.com/opinion/columnists/star-parker-liberal-hypocrisy-about-sanctuary-cities/article_8fe2e5bc-611c-11e9-9840-2f1c2da5a149.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a recent article in the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, Seattle spends more than $1 billion annually struggling with its homeless problem, “nearly $100,000 for every homeless man, woman and child in King County.” Yet, the article continues, “the crisis seems only to have deepened, with more addiction, more crime and more tent encampments in residential neighborhoods. By any measure, the city’s efforts are not working.” The author, Christopher Rufo, a fellow at the Seattle-based Center for Wealth, Poverty & Morality at the Discovery Institute, surveys what he calls the “ideological power centers” driving the discussions in Seattle about how to deal with their homeless. Not surprisingly, they are all on the left, and, of course, one socialist city councilwoman explains it as “how deeply dysfunctional capitalism is.” Seattle-based corporations, such as Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks and Boeing, in her analysis, “drive up housing prices and push the working class toward poverty and despair — and, too often, onto the streets.” The irony of this distorted analysis lies in tying it to the immigration crisis. Those massing on our southern border, trying to gain entry to our country, are pouring out from dysfunctional socialist Central American countries such as Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Capitalism and economic freedom are the answer, not the problem.)

HEARTLAND INSTITUTE
— CENSORED! HOW ONLINE MEDIA COMPANIES ARE SUPPRESSING FREE SPEECH – Media Research Center
https://www.heartland.org/publications-resources/publications/censored-how-online-media-companies-are-suppressing-free-speech
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Top tech firms like Google, YouTube and Twitter partner with leftist groups attempting to censor conservatives. Like it or not, social media is the communication form of the future — not just in the U.S., but worldwide. Just Facebook and Twitter combined reach 1.8 billion people. More than two-thirds of all Americans (68 percent) use Facebook. YouTube is pushing out TV as the most popular place to watch video. Google is the No. 1 search engine in both the U.S. and the world. War is being declared on the conservative movement in this space and conservatives are losing — badly. If the right is silenced, billions of people will be cut off from conservative ideas and conservative media. It’s the new battleground of media bias. But it’s worse. That bias is not a war of ideas. It’s a war against ideas. It’s a clear effort to censor the conservative worldview from the public conversation. The Media Research Center has undertaken an extensive study of the problem at major tech companies — Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube — and the results are far more troubling than most conservatives realize. Here are some of the key findings:)

— Should a White Man Be the Face of the Democratic Party in 2020? – Astead W. Herndon and Matt Flegenheimer (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, to get elected, White men promise to use their office to give more and more and more preference to minorities and to women, and especially to those who are younger. How soon, if not already, to get elected, will White men promise to immediately a) fire all those who they have authority to fire who are White and/or male and b) replace them with young minorities and young females? To get promoted beyond GS-13 in the federal government, you have to a) excel in hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat women and b) excel in getting rid of federal employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

— In a challenge for Detroit, teens put off getting their licenses and buying cars. – Adrienne Roberts (DIERSEN: To not have a driver’s and to not own a car is a) to make yourself a burden on others, b) to limit your ability to get an education, c) to limit your ability to get a job, and d) to limit your etc. As soon as I turned 16 in 1964, a) I got a driver’s license, b) I bought a 1958 Chevy BelAir, and c) I used that car to drive to Crete-Monee High School and to a part-time job washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. In 1966, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint with the money that I had earned washing dishes and drove it a) to jobs cleaning golf shoes in Flossmoor, chipping slag in Chicago Heights, pumping gasoline in Chicago Heights, and delivering mail in Park Forest and b) to classes at UIC 1966-1967. In 1967, I bought a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 with the money that I had earned delivering mail and drove it to my job delivered mail 1966-1968 and to classes at UIC. In 1968, I bought a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE with the money that I had earned delivering mail and drove it a) to my jobs delivering mail in 1969 and working on an automobile assembly line in 1970, b) to classes at NIU 1969-1970, c) to my jobs selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971 and pumping gasoline 1971, and d) to graduate business classes at UIC. While I worked for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969, I used the aforesaid new cars to deliver mail in Park Forest.)

QUARTZ
— The new digital divide is between people who opt out of algorithms and people who don’t – Anjana Susarla (DIERSEN: Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor is NOT a Democrat or Democrat plant algorithm, Libertarian or Libertarian plant algorithm, Green or Green plant algorithm, or RINO algorithm. Consequently, GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails contain links to articles that promote the traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform and in the Republican Party platform. Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois want to a) abolish the aforesaid planks and b) abolish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://qz.com/1597901/how-people-feel-about-algorithms-has-become-the-new-digital-divide/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every aspect of life can be guided by artificial intelligence algorithms—from choosing what route to take for your morning commute, to deciding whom to take on a date, to complex legal and judicial matters such as predictive policing. Big tech companies like Google and Facebook use AI to obtain insights on their gargantuan trove of detailed customer data. This allows them to monetize users’ collective preferences through practices such as micro-targeting, a strategy used by advertisers to narrowly target specific sets of users. In parallel, many people now trust platforms and algorithms more than their own governments and civic society. An October 2018 study suggested that people demonstrate “algorithm appreciation,” to the extent that they would rely on advice more when they think it is from an algorithm than from a human. In the past, technology experts have worried about a “digital divide” between those who could access computers and the internet and those who could not. Households with less access to digital technologies are at a disadvantage in their ability to earn money and accumulate skills. But, as digital devices proliferate, the divide is no longer just about access. How do people deal with information overload and the plethora of algorithmic decisions that permeate every aspect of their lives? The savvier users are navigating away from devices and becoming aware of how algorithms affect their lives. Meanwhile, consumers who have less information are relying even more on algorithms to guide their decisions.)

— Of course, those who are anti-religious, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican focus on throwing those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican off committees – Dave Diersen 
http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: Those who are anti-religious, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican, their operatives, and their dupes focus on promoting dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, retaliation, and even worse things. They are 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. Ever-increasingly, they focus on throwing those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican off committees. I should write a book about the aforesaid who succeeded a) in ending my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, b) in ending my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, c) in ending my Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, d) in ending my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership in 2007, e) in ending my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004, and f) in ending my GAO employment in 1997. My critics/opponents have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. They stress the tremendous power that they have to destroy any individual, any organization, any company, and any government that might come to my defense. They stress those who could/should have come to my defense in 2012, 2011, 2010, 2007, 2004, and 1997, but failed/refused to do so.)

Many, if not most of them had loved ones who were killed or injured by Germans.

Because my outstanding parents never had much money, I never expected them to, and they did not, give me any money for cars, tuition, books, or room and board at NIU. They did provide me with room and board while attended UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. I paid for a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 and a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE, tuition, books, and room and board at NIU with money that I earned working for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. My father died suddenly in October of 1969 and my mother had never worked outside of our home in Crete. After I graduated from NIU in August of 1970, I helped support my mother and brother until September of 1972 with money that I earned working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights and for IRS in Chicago and Harvey.)

— New CEO slated for tollway Jose R. Alvarez comes from Chicago Housing Authority – Marni Pyke (DIERSEN: What does Alvarez know about tollways? GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980, I brought with me almost 9 years of IRS Collection Division experience, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year. But my Democrat GAO superiors wasted that experience a) by never assigning me to audits of IRS’s Collection Division and b) by assigning me to audits of IRS for only 3 (1986-1988) of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO. During those almost 18 years, none of those who were assigned to audits had worked for IRS. Overwhelmingly, those assigned to audits of IRS were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. Many, if not most of them did not want the assignments.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— U.S. Rep. Sean Casten has high praise for fellow freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal resolution. – Shia Kapos (DIERSEN: Which Republican candidate is going to run against and defeat Casten? What are the following doing to get the best possible Republican candidate to run against and defeat Casten: Peter Roskam, Illinois Republican Party (IRP) National Committeeman and Committeewoman, IRP officers, 6th Congressional District IRP State Central Committee member, and 6th Congressional District Republican county and township organization officers?) 
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/04/18/casten-on-aocs-green-deal-preckwinkle-reflects-population-dropping-again-426113
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten, who campaigned on a “fix climate change” platform, just wishes it wasn’t sucking the air out of all the other green legislation. “The Green New Deal has made it very hard to advance a different idea about how to move forward [on climate change] without being seen as antagonistic,” Casten said during an interview with POLITICO. Casten has bills in various forms on issues he cares about, and he’s been asked by other lawmakers to join on their climate-focused bills, too. But they’re all effectively on hold, he says, while Ocasio-Cortez’s plan gets the headlines. The Green New Deal calls for the nation to reduce its fossil fuel use to zero within 10 years. Casten is back in Illinois this week after his first three months in Congress. We met over coffee at Starbucks in Carpentersville. Here are seven takeaways from the interview: On what works/doesn’t work in AOC’s resolution: “I agree with the urgency of it. That part is awesome. It’s just more idealistic than practical. To do climate policy right, you have to understand how our current energy structure works.” Casten points to questions about whether fertilizer can be made without natural gas or if aviation fuels can replace existing high-energy, low-density petroleum-based fuels. They’re both areas that are difficult to de-carbonize based on current technologies. His Capitol Hill mentors: U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, who serves Illinois’ 11th District. The two representatives share a passion for science and business. Also New Hampshire Rep. Annie Kuster and Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin. “Every time I talk to [Raskin] I realize he’s super smart and I leave thinking I’m super smart,” says Casten.)

DAILY SIGNAL
— The Natural Limits of Identity Politics – Victor Davis Hanson (DIERSEN: Question: When will illegal immigration to America end? ANSWER: When Spanish is America’s official language. When everyone in America speaks, reads, and writes Spanish. When America looks like Mexico. When there are few, if any Whites left in America. When Mexico and the other Spanish-speaking countries officially declare victory over America.)
https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/04/18/the-natural-limits-of-identity-politics/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Economist Herbert Stein’s old adage—“If something cannot go on forever, it will stop”—still holds. Take illegal immigration. There are currently somewhere from 11 million to 15 million immigrants living in the United States without legal authorization. Last month, nearly 100,000 people were apprehended or turned away while trying to illegally cross the southern border. Some experts suggest that at least that number made it across without arrest. At that rate, the United States would be gaining a fairly large city of undocumented arrivals each month. Most of the people who enter the United States illegally arrive without fluency in English, a high school diploma, competitive job skills, or money. The majority will require support subsidies, and collectively they will require increased legal and law enforcement investments. At some point, American social services will be so taxed that the system will be rendered dysfunctional—as is already occurring in areas of the American Southwest. Or, some regions of America will so resemble the countries illegal immigrants abandoned that there will be little point in heading north. Either way, the current border chaos will find its own self-correcting mechanisms, even if that means there will be no border at all—or northern Mexico and the southern United States will become indistinguishable. Currently, the national debt is $22 trillion and growing at a rate of nearly $1 trillion a year due to staggering annual budget deficits. The George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations roughly doubled the debt they inherited, and the Donald Trump administration may be on schedule to do the same. More importantly, the national debt is now over 100% of the gross domestic product. Presidents and Congress like to spend and to spread money to voters. They fear politically suicidal recessions if they cut back. But over the last 20 years, the government has mostly exhausted traditional economic stimuli such as larger budget deficits, near-zero real interest rates, and expansion of the money supply.)
