DAILY HERALD
— Why public servants need to be protected – John L. Micek (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government swore that they would enforce Civil Service protections, but they did not. They failed/refused to protect federal employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran like me who complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and/or retaliation.)

WAND
— GLAAD say chain needs to do more (DIERSEN: What more do LGBTQ activists want the religious, government, political, and financial leaders in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world to do? From what I see, it is first to get rid of those who oppose promoting LGBTQ activity and then to get rid of those who do not engage in LGBTQ activity.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Drew Anderson, director of campaigns and rapid response for GLAAD, said in a statement that Chick-Fil-A must do more. “If Chick-Fil-A is serious about their pledge to stop holding hands with divisive anti-LGBTQ activists, then further transparency is needed regarding their deep ties to organizations like Focus on the Family, which exist purely to harm LGBTQ people and families,” he said in a statement. CNBC reached out to Chick-Fil-A for comment on the matter and was told it had nothing else to add.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Chick-fil-A Betrays Principles and Faithful Customers – Laurie Higgins (DIERSEN: Chick-fil-A’s dumping Christians will motivate Democrat, Libertarian, Green, and RINO governments to pass resolutions to dump Christians. In your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world, who takes the lead in dumping Christians?) 
https://illinoisfamily.org/faith/chick-fil-a/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a stunning act of betrayal, Chick-fil-A’s charitable foundation, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, has announced it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), or Paul Anderson Youth Home (PAYH). Though Chick-fil-A has not publicly acknowledged the reason for its betrayal, everyone knows what it is. Chick-fil-A is attempting to curry favor with the “LGBTQ+” community that is shredding our social fabric. This policy shift constitutes a cowardly betrayal of Chick-fil-A’s Christian ethos and its Christian customers who have stood by Chick-fil-A through all its trials at the hands of legions of supporters of sexual deviance. Broods of vipers identifying as apostles of justice, equality, tolerance, diversity, inclusivity, and compassion have been protesting and maligning Chick-fil-A since 2012 when Dan Truett Cathy, chairman and chief executive officer, made some public statements in an interview with the Baptist Press supporting true marriage and opposing the legal recognition of homosexual unions as marriages. After homosexuals got wind of Cathy’s theologically orthodox and unremarkable statements, some part of hell broke loose and raged against Chick-fil-A. Fortunately for Cathy and Chick-fil-A, Christians turned out en masse all across the country to show their support with their time and money for Cathy’s stand for truth. And this is how Cathy and Chick-fil-A repay them.)

https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/politics/joe-biden-marijuana-gateway-drug/index.html
— Trump’s aides eye moving impeachment witnesses out of White House jobs – Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors in the federal government, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me. I should write a book about TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter leaders, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me.)
https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/politics/donald-trump-never-trump-white-house-staff/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s one of the persistent anomalies of the impeachment inquiry: most of the witnesses airing concerns at Trump’s approach to Ukraine remain employed by him, despite his claims they are “Never Trumpers” and his overt suggestions they’ve already been fired. None, for now, have been explicitly fired by Trump, even as he and his allies suggest otherwise. It’s created an odd and uncomfortable situation for staffers, who say they are unclear on their colleagues’ futures in the administration. Over the weekend, a GOP talking point emerged that Trump was well within his rights to choose his own team, a response to Yovanovitch public recounting of the smear campaign orchestrated by Trump’s allies to push her from her post in Kiev. “America hired @realDonaldTrump to fire people like the first three witnesses we’ve seen,” the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted as Yovanovitch began her testimony. “Career government bureaucrats and nothing more.” A day later, Trump himself suggested on Twitter he’d already fired the three State Department employees who have appeared in public impeachment hearings, quoting the conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.)

— How local ‘fake news’ websites spread ‘conservative propaganda’ in the US Locality Labs, a company operating scores of sites that purports to be a local news organization, is facing criticism it is part of a rightwing lobbying effort – Adam Gabbatt (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, all government and political news and commentary is fake except for the government and political news that they put out or bless. Because I refuse to serve as an operative or as a dupe for my critics/opponents, they do everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails.

I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Like candidates from the time of George Washington, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor is leaning hard on his seven-month deployment as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan as a powerful credential. As he does, he walks a narrow path between giving his wartime service its due and overstating it. He is careful not to call himself a combat veteran even as he notes the danger he faced. One of his former competitors for the Democratic nomination, Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, has drawn a sharp contrast between his four combat tours in Iraq and Buttigieg’s service. And a former commanding officer, who said he thinks Buttigieg would be within his rights to say he is a combat veteran, nonetheless questions the use of a rifle in his ads. As support for his campaign grows, Buttigieg can expect more intense scrutiny of his military record in a political climate where military service is far from sacred, as past attacks on the records of Republican John McCain and Democrat John Kerry show.)

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/nov/18/new-york-times-editor-says-trump-has-put-his-reporters-lives-at-risk

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The executive editor of the New York Times has accused Donald Trump of putting his reporters’ lives at risk by subjecting them to personal abuse and describing them as “enemies of the people”. Dean Baquet, who has led the news outlet during one of the most tumultuous periods in its history, said the US president’s history of verbal attacks on journalists such as the New York Times’s political reporter Maggie Haberman was “appalling” and risked having serious consequences. “I think his personal attacks on reporters, including Maggie, are pretty awful and pretty unpresidential,” he said. “I think personal attacks on journalists, when he calls them names, I think he puts their lives at risk. “I think that when he actually calls reporters names, says they’re un-American, says they’re enemies of the people … that phrase has a deep history. I think when he says that, it is an appalling attack on the press.” Baquet’s comments in an interview with the Guardian reflect Trump’s lengthy history of abuse towards journalists in general and the New York Times in particular. They echo comments from the newspaper’s publisher, AG Sulzberger, who has also clashed with Trump over his treatment of the media. Last year Sulzberger said he had told Trump in a meeting that “this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence”.)

REASON
— Reflections on the 30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall A happy occasion – but also one with lessons that remain urgent today. – ILYA SOMIN (DIERSEN: I should write a book about actions that Democrat and RINO leaders of the State of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, etc. have taken to coerce conservative individuals, coerce conservative organizations, and coerce conservative companies to leave Illinois, to leave DuPage County, to leave Milton Township, and to leave Wheaton.) 
https://reason.com/2019/11/09/reflections-on-the-30th-anniversary-of-the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Decisions to “vote with your feet” are often better indicators of peoples’ true preferences than ballot box voting, since foot voters have better incentives to become well-informed about the alternatives before them. Even more powerful evidence is the fact that many East Germans and others fled communism even when doing so meant risking their lives. . .For millions of people around the world today, like for East Germans until 1989, international migration is the only realistic way to escape a lifetime of poverty and oppression. Yet governments—including those of liberal democracies—routinely use coercion to stop them from “voting with their feet.”)

My Democrat IRS superiors unfairly 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 unfairly forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— DECEMBER 28, 2018 FLASHBACK: If You’re Over 50, Chances Are the Decision to Leave a Job Won’t be Yours A new data analysis by ProPublica and the Urban Institute shows more than half of older U.S. workers are pushed out of longtime jobs before they choose to retire, suffering financial damage that is often irreversible. – Peter Gosselin (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are forced to retire, it is because you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.)
https://www.propublica.org/article/older-workers-united-states-pushed-out-of-work-forced-retirement
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jeffrey Wenger, a senior labor economist with the RAND Corp., said some of these people likely were laid off, but they cover it up by saying they retired. “There’s so much social stigma around being separated from work,” he said, “even people who are fired or let go will say they retired to save face.”)

— 3 Reasons You Should Plan for an Early Retirement Even if you intend to never stop working, you still need a retirement plan. – Kailey Hagen (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are forced to retire, it is because you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.)
https://www.fool.com/retirement/2019/11/14/3-reasons-you-should-plan-for-an-early-retirement.aspx
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. You may be forced to retire early As I mentioned above, even if you intend to work late into life, unexpected circumstances may prevent that. Your company might close or downsize, leaving you out of work. Or you may become seriously ill or need to care for a sick family member. This could take up a lot of your time and prevent you from working even if you want to. If one of these situations happens to you, you could try to find a new, more flexible job that can accommodate your schedule and talents. But in this world of fast-changing technology, there’s no way to be sure what the jobs of the future will look like or how qualified you will be for them. Even if you try to search for new work, it could be months before you find something suitable — or you might never find anything at all, and you’ll need adequate retirement savings to fall back on.)

ATLANTIC
— The President’s Cognitive Decline As age factors more urgently in politics, a simple test could evaluate who remains fit for office. – JAMES HAMBLIN (DIERSEN: What shows your cognitive abilities? For me it is the GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails that I have sent out since 2000. Since 2004, they have gone out each and every morning, and since 2015, each and every evening too. Since 2004, they have included links to more than 350,500 articles and information on many upcoming events.) 
https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2019/11/kings-speech/602050/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the moment, neurologists’ most widely used test for cognitive impairment is a basic screening exam known as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoCA—a five-minute, 30-question test that involves knowing where you are, drawing a clock, and identifying a picture of a tiger. The most difficult part is recalling five words that you are told to remember at the beginning of the exam. The test is meant to identify people who will have difficulty completing the “activities of daily living.” Last year Trump took this test. In a glowing press conference, his physician, Ronny Jackson, reported that the president aced it. But a test used for screening the general population for dementia does not necessarily suggest abilities to serve as commander in chief any more than, say, passing a test to get a driver’s license would. Anything less than a perfect score raises concerns, but a perfect score tells the public little about a candidate’s actual capacity. Better tests do exist. Simply and transparently administered, they could help the public know what is really going on with the cognitive status of people who seek to hold the nuclear codes. Cognitive testing for a government job has long been done in the military. In World War I, psychologists developed tests known as Alpha and Beta to assess a person’s ability to follow directions and process information.)

— Journalists Who Exposed Planned Parenthood’s ‘Baby Body Parts’ Trade Found Guilty – Phelim McAleer
https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-journalists-who-exposed-planned-parenthoods-baby-body-parts-trade-found-guilty
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Peter Breen, a lawyer for Mr. Daleiden, said the judgement is a direct threat to undercover journalism in California and across the country. “Undercover Journalism now comes with a $2 million price tag,” he said. Mr. Breen blamed Judge William Orrick’s directions to the jury for the verdict. “The judge should have told them that Mr. Daleiden’s filming was protected by the First Amendment. Instead, he told them the First Amendment is no defense, which is outrageous and not the law. When you have a series of unfair rulings, you can’t expect a fair verdict,” Breen said.)

THOMAS MOORE SOCIETY
— Thomas More Society Will Fight Multimillion Dollar RICO Judgment in David Daleiden’s Baby Body Parts Exposé Trial
http://www.standardnewswire.com/news/4991215836.html
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: “This lawsuit is payback for David Daleiden exposing Planned Parenthood’s dirty business of buying and selling fetal parts and organs,” declared lead Thomas More Society defense attorney Peter Breen. “We intend to seek vindication for David on appeal. His investigation into criminal activity by America’s largest abortion provider utilized standard investigative journalism techniques, those applied regularly by news outlets across the country.” “David’s findings revealed practices so abhorrent that the United States Congress issued criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood, and numerous states and elected officials have moved to strip it of funding,” continued Breen. “Rather than face up to its heinous doings, Planned Parenthood chose to persecute the person who exposed it. I am fully confident that when this case has run its course, justice will prevail, and David will be vindicated.”)
