Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tried to call the media out for its “glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more CoronaVirus cases than China” on Sunday morning. Many members of the press attacked him for the allegation, despite some of their own co-workers being involved in celebrating the news as a way to attack Trump.)

My uncles on mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII. My father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. I should write a book about those who by their words and/or by their actions have made it clear that they are anti-German American. I would focus on my Democrat superiors in the federal government and those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.

— The Class of 2020 Was Headed Into a Hot Job Market. Then Coronavirus Hit. Internships evaporate, career fairs are canceled and some college seniors wonder if they should even bother looking for jobs – Kathryn Dill and Patrick Thomas (DIERSEN: What class were you in? I was in the class of 1970. What negatively impacted your job search? For me, it was my being draft bait. My father had died suddenly in October of 1969. Potential employers did not believe that my financial hardship draft deferment application to support my mother and brother in Crete would be approved. Further, potential employers were under tremendous pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Consequently, I took the only job offer that got — retail sales manager for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I was the store’s salesman. Advancement opportunities were limited and slow. The store’s manager did not approve of my demographics (draft avoider, German-American, and Protestant). He never would have hired me, but Firestone Stores headquarters forced him to take me.)

My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class. My ACT score was only 24. I was 1-A for draft notwithstanding the fact that my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, I had partial red/green color blindness, and I had Osgood-Schlatter disease ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease). I spent my junior and senior years in high school and the summer in between washing dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always stressed the aforesaid.)

If I sought a government office, for example, Wheaton West District City Counsel, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that I get a $54,168/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $18,000+/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that the aforesaid is grossly excessive and that the federal government grossly overpaid me. Further, they would stress that I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Crete resident 1948-1972, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/best-case-scenario-august-peak-virus-dupage-county
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If severe control measures including strict social distancing are not put in place, coronavirus infections could top 210,000 in DuPage County by early May — 23 percent or more of the population. That’s the conclusion of Columbia University researchers as reported by the New York Times, which compiled maps showing the estimated spread of the virus in every county in America under varying scenarios for control measures. Under the best-case scenario, including strict imposition of measures like closing schools, banning mass gatherings, and testing and quarantining sick people and their contacts, the peak of infection could be pushed past July 31, with as few as 9,000 cases — just 1 percent of the DuPage County population. But even in a scenario falling somewhere between these two extremes, the number of infections could top 160,000 by the middle of June, about 18 percent of the population, the researchers concluded.)

https://www.seattletimes.com/business/local-business/as-advertising-dries-up-amid-coronavirus-shutdown-washington-news-outlets-lay-off-staff/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Coronavirus has infected Washington’s media ecosystem. The statewide shutdown of most businesses and a halt to events, ordered to slow the virus’s spread, have dried up advertising revenues at news outlets across the state. Layoffs and furloughs have followed, putting additional pressure on the remaining reporters and editors, who are already working overtime — and usually working from home — to feed the public’s need for news about the virus. Almost no paper in Washington has remained unscathed.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Media readership and viewership is soaring as citizens seek life-or-death information about the coronavirus: Where to get tested? Does my hospital have enough ventilators? Is it safe to go outside? But the accompanying economic decline is killing off advertising – for restaurants, cars, travel, entertainment – and other support that has kept many news organizations going. For some, the events of the past few weeks have already proved too much for their fragile existence. Alternative weeklies have stopped printing. Local dailies are laying off staff at already decimated newsrooms. Many others, including digital-only newsrooms, are hanging on by a thread. It’s happening around the world: Newspapers in Australia and Britain announced in the past few days that they were going out of business or suspending print publication. “Journalists are essential in this moment,” Craig Aaron, president and co-CEO of Free Press, a Washington-based advocacy nonprofit, told me in an interview. “We need to keep reporters working, and we have to do it now.”)

https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/march/neither-refugees-nor-asylum-seekers-the-real-reason-these-migrants-are-coming-to-the-us-illegally
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Leaving to “Keep Up with the Joneses” “The people who die here die of old age in bed,” Bensman said. “So you can’t argue that people are fleeing this place. But what you can say is that people are leaving this place to keep up with the Joneses.” “People are telling us about something entirely different as a motive for going to the United States, and it has to do with envy. What I mean by envy, particularly, is house envy,” Bensman continued. “American dollars being sent back to the families here have been poured into huge, beautiful houses.” Guatemala receives more than ten billion dollars a year in remittances from its citizens who are living in the United States and sending their money back home. And a lot of that money – at least in this town – is being used for home construction. The people that are working in the United States send money to their family members and what few men are left in this town are very busy constructing houses. Two homes we saw under construction are 2,500 square feet. Many Guatemalans appear to be achieving the American dream by moving the American dream back to Guatemala. The Dream? To Build a Nice House Back in Guatemala Marcus Domingo’s sons are in Missouri, working jobs where they’re paid “under the table” and sending enough money home to build both of these houses. “See, the problem here is there aren’t any economic resources, no jobs for us, it’s only in the United States where there’s work that pays enough to do this because Guatemala is a poor country,” Domingo said. “Right now our dream is for each of us to build our own house so we can have a good life, buy a little piece of land, and put a little money in the bank so that we can better our situation. Everyone sees that some are building all this and everyone became preoccupied with fighting to have one for themselves,” he said.)

— How many votes did the Republican candidates in contested races get in your precinct? Below are the unofficial results from the DuPage County Election Division for my DuPage County Milton Township Precinct 9 in Wheaton. I do not recommend or endorse candidates in Republican primaries. I do not do that because my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Illinois Republican Party (IRP) have been so successful in painting any recommendation or endorsement by me as being THE KISS OF DEATH for candidates. Further, the aforesaid do everything that they can to suppress the number of Republican primary ballots cast in my precinct because the more ballots that are cast, the greater the weighted vote that I have in MTRO, DCRCC, and IRP leadership elections. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. – Dave Diersen
