— President Trump gives command to NASCAR drivers at Daytona 500 – AP
https://abc7chicago.com/5937071/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump gave an election-year embrace to NASCAR and its fans Sunday when he became the second president ever to attend the Daytona 500. Given the honor of commanding drivers to start their engines, Trump made a grand entrance before the start of the race. He gave thousands of fans a flyover of Air Force One and then rode onto the track in the presidential motorcade as the audience roared with delight. The motorcade took roughly a quarter lap before pulling aside in an infield staging area. The president’s visit was widely welcomed by NASCAR fans. Trump 2020 flags flooded the infield, and some fans wore them as capes in the garage area.)

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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

Needless-to-say, the worst national origin to have is German. What if I had lied and successfully claimed Swedish ancestry? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me as well as the fact that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran and I lived in Crete 1948-1972. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece. Again, what if I had lied and successfully claimed Swedish ancestry?)

THE HILL
— Support for government accountability shouldn’t be a casualty of impeachment drama – NILMINI RUBIN AND ZACH GRAVES (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the Democrats who have run GAO since 1980. I would focus on how they wasted my GAO career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. I would focus on how they used Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, up-or-out, budgeting, work assignment policies, performance expectation setting policies, performance appraisal policies, promotion policies, etc. to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few GAO employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/483147-support-for-government-accountability-shouldnt-be-a-casualty-of-impeachment
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Government Accountability Office (GAO) usually works hard to avoid political controversy. But the agency’s recent legal decision vaulted the nonpartisan agency into the center of impeachment politics. The GAO asserted that the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) violated the law when it withheld millions in funding from the Department of Defense that Congress appropriated for security aid authorized by the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI). In the wake of the GAO’s legal decision, conservatives should resist the temptation to dismiss the GAO as another creature of the swamp. In fact, Congress’s watchdog is one of taxpayers’ best tools for holding a dysfunctional government accountable while addressing the nation’s long-term governance challenges.)

WASHINGTON POST
— Trump bucks Barr’s request to stop tweeting about Justice Dept., declaring a ‘legal right’ to seek intervention in criminal cases – Matt Zapotosky and John Wagner (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents hint/imply/argue/shout that if my claims had merit, Republicans George Bush, Dennis Hastert, Peter Fitzgerald, and Henry Hyde would have intervened in Diersen v. GAO. GAO works for Congress. The Democrats who ran GAO wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. My critics/opponents stress a) that Bush was President while my lawsuit against GAO was pending, b) that Fitzgerald, was my U.S. Senator while the lawsuit was pending, c) that Bush and Fitzgerald appointed the judge in the lawsuit and the attorney who represented GAO, d) that Hastert was the Speaker of the House while the lawsuit was pending, and e) that Hyde was my U.S. Representative while the lawsuit was pending. My critics/opponents ignore Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois and use the aforesaid to hint/imply/argue/shout that because Republican elected officials did not come to my defense, a) that my claims had no merit and b) that GAO wasted my career and got rid of me because I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. In my defense, I stress that Bush, Hastert, Fitzgerald, and Hyde did little or nothing a) to defend or advance the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform or b) to show that they opposed patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, or retaliation.)
