— The virtue signaling of renaming Lake Shore Drive – JOHN KASS
(DIERSEN: Who are the biggest virtue signalers in your county, in your county district, in your township, in your municipality, and in your municipal district? I should write about the biggest virtue signalers in DuPage County, DuPage County’s 4th District, Milton Township, Wheaton, and Wheaton’s West District. I would focus on those who hint/imply/argue/shout a) that it is virtuous to promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and b) that it is virtuous to get rid of individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Critical Race Theory Finds a Home at Wheaton College – Laurie Higgins
https://illinoisfamily.org/faith/critical-race-theory-finds-a-home-at-wheaton-college/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: That probably explains why administrators and faculty said next to nothing when the increasingly woke, decreasingly conservative evangelical Wheaton College held a racially segregated pre-graduation ceremony for colorful people on May 8, 2021, which was advertised as “RACIALIZED MINORITY RECOGNITION CEREMONY” (all caps in original) and held in the campus chapel. While it was created “Especially for undergraduate students, staff, and faculty of color,” the school provided “limited seating” for colorless people. I wonder if those seats were way in the back. One Wheaton faculty member who likely loves Wheaton’s embrace of re-segregation is associate professor of philosophy and critical race theorist Nathan Cartagena who was recently interviewed for leftist Christian Jim Wallis’ Sojourners’ magazine. In this interview, Cartagena explained how he sussed out Wheaton’s friendliness to CRT by delivering a visiting lecture on controversial critical race theorist Tommy Curry during the interview process: I wanted to see: Is this a place that would welcome such reflection? I received a warm welcome from the students, my department, etc., so I thought “OK, this is a place where I can do this.” And by “do this,” Cartagena meant, not expose students to the debate on CRT, but to promote CRT: I taught a reading group my first year at Wheaton that involved one of the important texts in the critical race theory movement, Faces at the Bottom of the Well by Derrick Bell. The following year I asked if I could teach a half-semester class on critical race theory—I got a full thumbs up. . .Enquiring donors and parents considering sending their children to Wheaton may want to know if Cartagena spends equal time having students study any of the many works of criticism of CRT like Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything About Race, Gender, and Identity—and Why This Harms Everyone or Voddie Baucham’s book Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s Looming Catastrophe.)

CHATHAM JOURNAL
— Following the success sequence is a path away from poverty and crime – Andrew Heath (DIERSEN: Who do you give credit to for your successes? I give credit to my outstanding parents who had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL), who raised me as a MSL, and who had me confirmed as a MSL. They sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod.)
https://chathamjournal.com/2021/05/13/following-the-success-sequence-is-a-path-away-from-poverty-and-crime/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, graduate. Second, maintain full-time employment. Third, if you’re going to have kids, wait until you’re married. If you follow those three steps in that order, you are following what has been coined the “success sequence.” People who have followed the success sequence are much likelier to escape poverty and end up in the middle to upper-income brackets. Many parents have been giving similar advice for generations, but academics and policymakers have only recently given the concept any attention.)

ROANOKE TIMES
— Who are the real RINOs? – Editorial
(DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. RINOs reject some, if not most, if not all the planks in the Republican Party platform. Most commonly, they reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. RINOs focus on destroying individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that support the planks that they reject. I should write a book about RINOs who have had the most success in destroying the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization.)

From what I see, first, they will focus on destroying Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members who do not hate Trump. They will focus on those IRP SCC members who have the heaviest weighted vote. Then, second, the officers of Republican county party organizations who do not hate Trump. They will focus on officers in counties that have the most Republican voters. Then, third, the officers of Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump. The will focus on officers in townships/wards that have the most Republican voters. Then, fourth, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains who do not hate Trump. They will focus on Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in precincts that have the most Republican voters. But beyond the aforesaid, of course, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters will focus on destroying those Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, reporters, journalists, etc. who have the greatest impact in Illinois. Of course, I will report everything that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters do a) to destroy me, b) to destroy my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters , and c) to destroy those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/12/us/politics/liz-cheney-ousted-voted-out.html
— More than 100 Republicans, including some former elected officials, are preparing to release a letter this week threatening to form a third party if the Republican Party does not make certain changes, according to an organizer of the effort. The statement is expected to take aim at former President Donald J. Trump’s stranglehold on Republicans, which signatories to the document have deemed unconscionable. – Zach Montague

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. While Trump was president, he did more to defend and advance that platform than any of those who ran against him in the 2016 Republican presidential primary could have. That is why Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs have done everything that they can to destroy Trump. Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. Hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters despise/hate those who are a) law enforcement officers, b) Trump supporters, c) conservatives, d) patriotic people, e) Republicans, f) Americans, g) Whites, h) males, i) older people, j) heterosexuals, k) married people, l) non-poor people, m) gun owners, n) Christians, o) Protestants, p) German Americans, q) draft avoiders, and/or r) those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater says “After spreading false claims, Michigan Republican wants to register, fine fact-checkers: ‘You better be right’” While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $102,188-$132,845/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 $85,935-$97,395/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.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/05/12/michigan-matt-maddock-fact-checkers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “My legislation will put Fact Checkers on notice: don’t be wrong, don’t be sloppy, and you better be right,” Maddock wrote in a Facebook post announcing his proposal last week. Maddock’s bill, the Fact Checker Registration Act ( http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2021-2022/billintroduced/House/pdf/2021-HIB-4813.pdf ), was introduced Tuesday and would require fact-checkers to register with the state and insure themselves with $1 million fidelity bonds. Any fact-checker that failed to register with the state could face a $1,000 per day fine. The proposed legislation would also allow anyone to sue a fact-checker over “any wrongful conduct that is a violation of the laws of this state.”)

Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He fought brittle type 1 diabetes from age 14. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. He did not buy a new car until he was 45 years old and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy. He died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother never attended high school. If my parents were filthy rich, why did I do yard work and deliver newspapers 1962-1964; wash dishes 1964-1966; clean golf shoes, chip slag, and pump gasoline in 1966; deliver mail 1966-1969; work on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sell tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; and pump gasoline 1971-1972?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I’m the leader of the largest conservative caucus, the Republican Study Committee. Chris, It is uncomfortable at times, but one of my jobs is to hold my Republican leadership accountable for being focused on the Republican ideals that we stand for and the single mission that we have to win back the majority,” Banks said. “The reason, Chris, that you and I are talking about Liz Cheney on this important program on Sunday morning is the exact evidence that she’s failed in her mission as the chief spokesperson of this party.” Banks said Cheney should be talking about President Biden’s “radical agenda” and said her failure to focus on that is why he and other House Republicans believe it is “necessary” for her to be replaced.)

My Democrat GAO superiors 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 $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My GAO superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who had not made GS-13 (currently $102,188) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $120,755) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $142,041) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $172,500) by age 40.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— Illinois House passes bill radically expanding scope of affirmative action, renaming it ‘positive action’ – Thomas Lifson
(DIERSEN: Democrats have always used Affirmative Action (AA) to hire, retain, and promote Democrats, and especially Democrats who are minority, female, and/or younger. Democrats have always used AA to not hire and to get rid of Republicans, and especially Republicans who are White, male, and/or older.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/05/illinois_house_passes_bill_radically_expanding_scope_of_affirmative_action_renaming_it_positive_action.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A bill that has already passed the Illinois State House of Representatives and awaits a State Senate vote would grant preferences in hiring and promotion to people with “any characteristic whatsoever that might disadvantage somebody, regardless of whether the characteristic is inherited or self-inflicted.” A lack of education, for instance. – Mark Glennon explains Illinois House Bill 3914 in the site he founded, Wirepoints: “It would have state agencies give hiring preference to anybody with a “protected characteristic.” The bill’s definition of that term is the key. It includes “any characteristic which may be used, either directly or indirectly, to discriminate against or place at a disadvantage such persons having that characteristic.” So, it’s not just involuntary traits like race or gender, it’s anything that would disadvantage somebody, even if self-imposed. Anything. As you think about examples of how absurd this is, it’s important to remember this is not about nondiscrimination. It’s about creating new preferences for anybody with a “protected characteristic.” He offers a number of examples of characteristics that would be covered, and result in preferences, such as: “Or what about applicants who are unintelligent, even those who are so because they haven’t been motivated enough to educate themselves? And what about those who simply lack experience? They, too, generally fare poorly in the labor market and those traits also fit within the definition of “protected characteristics.” The bill would call for them to get a preference over those who are smarter or more experienced, and no distinction would be made if those traits stemmed from simple lack of effort.”)

BREITBART
— What Happened to Adam Kinzinger? – JOEL B. POLLAK
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/05/09/pollak-what-happened-to-adam-kinzinger-illinois/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After the 2010 elections, when five Tea Party-backed Republicans won congressional seats in Illinois, the Democrats in the state legislature redrew the district boundaries and pitted Kinzinger against fellow incumbent Rep. Don Manzullo (R-IL), a staunch conservative long before the Tea Party. Kinzinger painted himself as the young, fresh face against “a creaky lawmaker long past his prime,” in Politico‘s words. He had the backing of the Republican establishment; conservative groups belatedly backed Manzullo. Kinzinger won, having burned his bridges to the conservative movement. His district is reliably Republican, so he wins easy re-elections. But his new constituency has become CNN. Kinzinger’s shift is what happens when Democrats control the media, and the map. That’s why we are debating Trump: it suits Democrats, and the media, who will do anything not to talk about Biden and his policies.)

NEWS BUSTERS
— Internal Documents Reveal Disney Striving for Insane Wokeness – P.J. Gladnick
(DIERSEN: Who is leading the effort to turn your municipality, your township, and your county into a “leftist woke cult?”)
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/pj-gladnick/2021/05/09/internal-documents-reveal-disney-striving-insane-wokeness
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Disney is supposed to create happiness but according to leaked internal documents, what that corporation now seems to be striving for is an insane level of very angry wokeness that is quite disturbing. Fortunately internal documents from the Disney corporation were leaked to Christopher Rufo of the City Journal which he revealed on Friday in “The Wokest Place on Earth.” In the past year, Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma, bombarded employees with trainings on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” and “white saviors,” and launched racially segregated “affinity groups” at the company’s headquarters. The Disney wokeness program comes under the umbrella name of “Reimagine Tomorrow” composed of “training modules” that sound like indoctrination by a Maoist cult. Rufo writes: I have obtained a trove of whistleblower documents related to Disney’s “diversity and inclusion” program, called “Reimagine Tomorrow,” which paints a disturbing picture of the company’s embrace of racial politics. Multiple Disney employees, who requested anonymity out of fear of reprisals, told me that the Reimagine Tomorrow program, though perhaps noble in intent, has become deeply politicized and engulfed parts of the company in racial conflict. The core of Disney’s racial program is a series of training modules on “antiracism.” In one, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” the company tells employees that they must “take ownership of educating [themselves] about structural anti-Black racism” and that they should “not rely on [their] Black colleagues to educate [them],” because it is “emotionally taxing.” The United States, the document claims, has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia,” and white employees, in particular, must “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” Disney recommends that employees atone by “challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” and “I don’t see color”; they must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and must “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.” As part of this woke ideology the idea of equality must be ditched in favor of “equity.” In another module, called “What Can I Do About Racism?,” Disney tells employees that they should reject “equality,” with a focus on “equal treatment and access to opportunities,” and instead strive for “equity,” with a focus on “the equality of outcome.” The training also includes a series of lessons on “implicit biases,” “microaggressions,” and “becoming an antiracist.” The company tells employees that they must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not your wealth, income, treatment by the criminal justice system, employment, access to housing, health care, political power, and education might be different if you were of a different race.” There are many, many more examples of cultish leftism that has taken hold at Disney but I leave with you one final example from Rufo’s expose of their descent into political insanity: Finally, as part of an initiative labeled “CEO sponsored priorities,” Disney has launched racially segregated “affinity groups” for minority employees, with the goal of achieving “culturally-authentic insights.” In the original launch, the Latino affinity group was called “Hola,” the Asian affinity group was called “Compass,” and the black affinity group was called “Wakanda.” The racial affinity groups, also called Business Employee Resource Groups (BERGs), are technically open to all employees but in practice have become almost entirely segregated by race, with the occasional exception for white “executive champions” who attend on behalf of corporate leadership. And here is the viewpoint on all this woke craziness by white “executive champion” Bob Iger: …executive chairman Bob Iger pledged that the company “should be taking a stand” on political controversies and will no longer “shy away from politics” in the future. Hey Bob! Will you still be of that opinion when your customers “shy away” from Disney after finding out that you are turning your company into a leftist woke cult?)

She leaned in for a closer look. “John van Nostrand was a slave owner,” it said. “According to the US census in 1790, the (Van) Nostrands owned 6 people.” Ms. Thompson, who is Black, was dumbfounded. “I didn’t even know anything about that,” she said. “He could’ve owned me.” The sticker was partly the brainchild of Elsa Eli Waithe, 33, a comedian living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, who, along with two collaborators, has been on a mission to let New Yorkers know that a good number of the city’s streets, subway stations and neighborhoods are named after enslavers.)

— The ‘GOP Impeachment 10’ try to navigate Cheney’s demise and their own futures – Jacqueline Alemany and Marianna Sotomayor
(DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs use the Republican Party’s BIG TENT policy to destroy the Republican Party. I should write a book about the success that Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) have had in destroying the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO. I would focus on those destroyers who reject the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.)

— Why Do Diversity And Inclusion Initiatives Fail? The Cautionary Tale Of Basecamp. – Agnes Uhereczky
(DIERSEN: Diversity and Inclusion efforts did not fail at GAO. During the 1980s and 1990s, the Democrats who ran GAO used Republican-led budget cuts to get rid of GAO’s employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $102,188) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $120,755) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $142,041) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $172,500) by age 40. I am Republican, White, male, non-veteran, and born in 1948. In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, I am shocked that GAO hired me in 1980, that GAO promoted me to GS-13 in 1986, and that GAO did not force me to retire until 1997 when I was 49 years old. GAO would not have hired me, let alone promoted me or let me work there for almost 18 years, if I had not a) earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, b) pasted the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) became a licensed CPA in 1981, f) became a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and Forensic Accountant in 1997, and f) earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

HOT CARS
— These Classic American Cars Will Obliterate Modern Sports Cars. Americans’ hunger for V8 power in the ’60s and ’70s gave birth to dozens of machines that are still able to embarrass many modern sports cars. – MARK LAKEWOOD
(DIERSEN: I owned a 1969 Dodge Charger SE 1968-1971. I owned a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T 1994-2005. Sadly, my ownership of the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T was tarnished by odometer fraud. SEE: https://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-7th-circuit/1385001.html and https://gopillinois.com/about/odometer/ )
https://www.hotcars.com/these-classic-american-cars-will-obliterate-modern-sports-cars/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1968 Dodge Charger R/T The Dodge Charger debuted in 1966 and received its chassis from the mid-sized Coronet. It made great efforts to curve a body and life of its own. It became a beloved high-speed streetcar and one of the more pricey fastback specialty machines of this season. The standard engine was a 5.2-liter V-8 engine discharging 230 hp. Over time, engines such as a 6.2-liter V-8 generating 325 ponies were availed. The icing on the cake was the 426 cubic-inch Street HEMI engine that changed fortunes for the Dodge Charger. The 1968 version was redesigned to set it completely apart from the Dodge Coronet. This version bore the R/T(Road/Track) capabilities, with twin stripes around the back being the distinguishing spec. The presence of a Charger R/T in the 1968 film Bullitt cements its importance in this season. If you get hold of one, be kind to let us know how it behaves against modern contemporaries, but we can guarantee you it will be satisfying.)
