— Section 230 Reform: Left and Right Want It, for Very Different Reasons – Daren Bakst
https://www.heritage.org/technology/commentary/section-230-reform-left-and-right-want-it-very-different-reasons
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Tech, including social media platforms, are now under the microscope, and legislators have very different ideas on what, if anything, needs to be done. Some want to reduce the chilling of speech by social media companies. And some want to use Section 230 reform as a way to chill speech still further. There should be wariness of getting on board with “230 reform” without recognizing that many on the left have a completely different view of what reform looks like.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.)
https://patch.com/illinois/palos/activists-plan-victory-lap-ousted-palos-trustees-last-meeting
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The southwest suburban Arab American community and their allies are taking credit for ousting embattled Palos Township Tr. Sharon Bannigan, who lost her bid for township assessor against incumbent Robert Maloney in the April 6 election. Maloney, garnered 3,909 votes to Brannigan’s 2,351, according to unofficial election results. “We screamed with joy, we were so relieved,” activist Hasam Marajda said, who led the #ByeBrannigan get-out-the-vote effort. “After four years of going to monthly township meetings, when she wouldn’t resign, we voted her out.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Republican Kirk Dillard has been approached “by prominent business and Republican leaders” to run for governor, but he told Playbook he’s not interested. Dillard wouldn’t need training wheels for the job given he was chief of staff to Gov. Jim Edgar and has legislative experience. “Currently, I have a wonderfully balanced personal and professional life,” he said. “These civic leaders came to me, not vice versa. I am not harboring a desire to run for governor.” Dillard, who is chairman of the Regional Transportation Authority’s board of directors, said he’s “laser focused” on guiding the Chicago area regional mass transit system out of the pandemic. “It’s an economic engine and an economic equalizer for our local communities and the state of Illinois.” All eyes are watching to see if Reps. Rodney Davis or Darin LaHood make a move for the governor’s office. They haven’t ruled out running, and their decisions could be based on how their districts are redrawn. Declared candidates so far: state Sen. Darren Bailey, businessman Gary Rabine, and state Sen. Paul Schimpf. Other potential candidates: former Senate Minority Leader Bill Brady, who recently said he’s considering a potential statewide run for office as secretary of state, governor, or perhaps U.S. Senate; state Sen. Jason Barickman; and attorney and Illinois National Committeeman for the Republican National Committee Richard Porter. Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s name also has been batted about but he has said that a run for governor isn’t likely. – SHIA KAPOS

AMERICAN THINKER
— Fixing Racism by Being Racist? – Brian C. Joondeph
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/fixing_racism_by_being_racist.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, one of America’s most prominent teaching hospitals, plans on offering “preferential care based on race” and “race explicit interventions” as part of its new “antiracist agenda for medicine.” Such a program uses a “reparations framework” to allocate medical resources. Reparations means that those who were never slaveholders are paying money to those who were never slaves, over injustices a century and a half ago, committed by people who may have no connection to the current reparation’s participants. In other words, using racism to combat racism. How ironic that the vision of the Mass General Brigham health system is dedication to delivering medical care that is, among other things, “equitable.” Nothing promotes equity like a racist concept of “preferential care based on race.” Princeton University, an elite institution of higher learning, comparable in prestige to the Brigham in the hospital world, offered admission to about 1500 applicants to its class of 2025, according to Powerline Blog. Only 28 percent were white Americans, compared to 68 percent who identified as “persons of color.” This is less than half of the 61 percent figure of white students enrolled in US public schools. So much for a class of students that “looks like America.”)

https://patriotpost.us/opinion/79074-robert-e-lee-a-leader-in-national-reconciliation-2021-04-12
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Civil War cost 258,000 Confederate deaths and 360,000 Union deaths. Suggestions have been made that reparations should be paid to the families of the Union soldiers who gave their lives to end slavery. . .During the Civil War, Lee’s estate overlooking Washington, DC, was confiscated by the federal government and turned into Arlington Cemetery. As was the case with many southerners, Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard had his properties in Memphis confiscated as reparations and given to black families for housing.)

BLAZE
— White House answered fake reporter’s questions for weeks before press corps exposed her to be ‘Lego’ video gamer – PAUL SACCA
(DIERSEN: Since 2005, my critics/opponents have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned me as being like Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News Ever since 2005, my critics/opponents have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. I should sue my critics/opponents.)
https://www.theblaze.com/news/white-house-fake-reporter-lego-gamer
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An online video game player was able to infiltrate the White House press corps by pretending to be a political reporter. The fake reporter was even able to submit questions to the Biden administration through the press corps, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki answered the imposter’s questions for weeks. An online persona posed as a reporter named “Kacey Montagu” for the Daily Mail, a British tabloid best known for celebrity gossip. There were Twitter and LinkedIn accounts dedicated to “Kacey Montagu,” plus she was named as the chief political correspondent for White House News, a fictional website. . .The person behind the imposter contacted the White House Correspondents Association about being becoming a pool reporter and inquired about applying for a day pass to cover the White House in person. “Kacey Montagu” was given access to cover COVID-19 government press briefings, but was not called upon. Montagu regularly sent in questions for the White House press corps to ask Psaki, adding that she wasn’t able to be there in person “due to social distancing regulations.” Montagu was able to hoodwink White House reporters, including from The Plain Dealer and CQ Roll Call, to ask Psaki numerous questions “about everything from COVID-19 travel bans, to coming ambassadorships, to Biden’s reaction to Microsoft being hacked.” “In at least one instance, a White House official was connected with Montagu to circle back with more information when they had it,” Politico reported. Some White House reporters researched “Kacey Montagu,” who had a deactivated LinkedIn account with a profile photo of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson eating an ice cream cone, and they became suspicious. During Thursday’s daily White House press briefing, Washington Blade White House Reporter Chris Johnson asked Psaki the question, “How involved is former President Obama and First Lady Obama in the Biden – Harris administration? Is President Biden seeking to bring back the often bipartisan portrait unveiling events at the White House?” The question was planted by Montagu. Mediaite investigated Kacey Montagu, and discovered that she “appears to be a gag persona for a former Secretary of State made of Legos.” “The Montagu website’s FAQ section describes her as ‘An American Citizen. Former Secretary of State, Mayor, Senator, President Pro Tempore and Speaker of the House,’ and her political views as ‘President Trump 2024, baby! I’m a Conservative,'” the outlet wrote on Thursday. Politico found that the person behind the “Kacey Montagu” persona was actually a Lego video gamer. “They believe Montagu’s White House moonlighting began as something to boast about in the online global gaming platform called ROBLOX, where users jokingly call themselves ‘Legos,'” according to Politico. “Within that platform is a role-playing group called nUSA, where people from across the world engage in a mock U.S. government exercise. At one point, Montagu had adopted the role of Secretary of State but resigned from that job after — as they recalled — ‘the [nUSA] President went to war with some U.K. and I thought it was a pretty bad idea!'” The prankster explained her motivation for the fake White House reporter profiles, “I created them as some fun but also to ensure that people know what is going on — they should be able to know what POTUS and V.P. is doing and I think the account following shows people are interested in that.” “I love journalism, and I think the press corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” the hoaxer told the outlet. The White House declined to comment on the situation.)

(DIERSEN: From what I see, Democrats and RINOs will use Vaccine Passport requirements to get rid of Republicans once and for all, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are soldiers, law enforcement officers, veterans, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, 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.)

— Are You Emotionally Ready to Retire? Eight Questions to Ask Yourself – Maryanne Vandervelde
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about being forced to take early retirement. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, when I was 6 years away from being eligible for regular retirement, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” They made it very clear to me that if I did not retire, they would constructively, if not literally, demote me. They would assign me to work for my coworkers and subordinates who had far less work experience, education, and/or professional certifications that I had. They would give me performance expectations and performance appraisals that would be even more unfair. That they would always rank me at the bottom of my coworkers for pay-for-performance. They could do the aforesaid because GAO was not unionized. GAO did not unionize until 2007. They would not have forced me to retire if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.)

I should write a book about leaders who talk and/or act like they do not want those who are the following to belong: 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.

I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned my GAO employment the most.

https://townhall.com/columnists/horacecooper/2021/04/10/who-watches-the-media-watchdogs-n2587692
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether or not the High Court chooses to engage, there is a real question of how democracy thrives in a media environment where leftists in the media make scurrilous claims about conservatives and the same media simply ignores legitimate charges against their progressive allies. Our founders assumed that the media would take its role as watchdog seriously, not become a cheerleader for one side over the other. Can a constitutional protection endure when it only protects one side of the debate?)

(DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, and rightfully so, if I was arrested for DUI, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would immediately demand that I resign immediately as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor and as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. They would stress that when someone who paints themselve as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican gets arrested for DUI, that brings tremendous disgrace to all those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)

Better yet, I should sue them. I would focus on those who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Illinois, DuPage County, DuPage County’s 4th District, Milton Township, Wheaton, and/or Wheaton’s West District.)

(DIERSEN: Where did your down payment come from? I bought a new town home in University Park September 1972 when I was 24 years old. The down payment came from what I had earned a) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights full-time August 1970-March 1971 and part-time since March 1971 and b) working for IRS in Chicago and then in Harvey since June 1971. That money also enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in October 1971 and to pay tuition and books for graduate business courses at Loyola starting in January 1972. I had graduated debt-free from NIU August 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. The money for tuition, books, and room and board came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office November 1966-September 1969. I bought a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974 and a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976. The down payments came from what I earned working for IRS. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978. The down payment came from what she had earned working for the FBI and U.S. League of Savings Institutions (League). We had a new home built in Wheaton in 1984. The down payment came from the equity that we had in our home and from what I earned working for GAO and from what my wife earned working for the League.)

ASSOCIATED PRESS
— Vaccine passports are latest flash point in COVID politics – MARK SCOLFORO
(DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want vaccine passports to be required so that they can use that requirement to more rapidly and more viciously destroy those who are not vaccinated.)
https://apnews.com/article/travel-new-york-data-privacy-immunizations-coronavirus-pandemic-f1c7623849d5458bcda3aed67f4c3d90
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The argument over whether passports are a sensible response to the pandemic or governmental overreach echoes the bitter disputes over the past year about masks, shutdown orders and even the vaccines themselves. . .But lawmakers around the country are already taking a stand against the idea. GOP senators in Pennsylvania are drawing up legislation that would prohibit vaccine passports, also known as health certificates or travel passes, from being used to bar people from routine activities. “We have constitutional rights and health privacy laws for a reason,” said Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Republican. “They should not cease to exist in a time of crisis. These passports may start with COVID-19, but where will they end?” Benninghoff said this week his concern was “using taxpayer money to generate a system that will now be, possibly, in the hands of mega-tech organizations who’ve already had problems with getting hacked and security issues.”)

https://www.aol.com/news/democrats-shocked-receiving-aoc-campaign-212616317.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘DCCC made clear that they will blacklist any org that helps progressive candidates like me,’ said AOC. Several House Democrats facing midterm campaigns in 2022 received a surprise in the form of $5,000 from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The contributions were sent in an effort to help the House majority stay ahead of a tough upcoming election cycle without contributing directly to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee — which AOC has been publicly against. She created a political action committee (PAC) to raise money for progressive primary candidates herself after she criticized DCCC policies.)

https://www.reviewjournal.com/opinion/opinion-columns/victor-davis-hanson/victor-davis-hanson-the-10-radical-new-rules-that-are-changing-america-2321809/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. . .2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”. . .3) Racialism is now acceptable. We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily — if at all — by an American commonality. . .4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen. . .5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children. . .6) Hypocrisy is passe. Virtue-signaling is alive. . .7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it. . .8) McCarthyism is good. Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence. . .9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge. . .10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity. Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican, and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter are the new gospels.)

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/04/01/obama-the-oppressor-n2587252
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Progressive leftists across the country are demanding that schools named after people who don’t pass their purity tests get new monikers. But in Waukegan, Illinois, they’re having a difficult time finding a suitable alternative. Two committees comprised of students, staff, and those in the community were tasked with renaming the Thomas Jefferson Middle School and the Daniel Webster Middle School, the first because he was a slave owner and the latter because he supported slavery. During a school board meeting on Tuesday to discuss some of the finalists for the Thomas Jefferson Middle School, immigration activists expressed their disapproval over one of the finalists: former President Barack Obama. . .So now, despite being America’s first black president, Obama is considered an “oppressor,” not woke enough to have a school named after him.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/breaking_down_and_breaking_up_.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden woke up on third base and thinks he hit a triple. Someone has told the president that he was elected by the American people to fundamentally change our country. He thinks he has a mandate, and that all that stands between him and success is a few ornery Republicans in the Senate who refuse to get out of the way. Correction. Biden believes that the only thing standing between him and greatness are cranky senators who do not see the United States as systemically racist, who don’t believe in vastly expanding the welfare state, who think that individual creativity and achievement have built our great country and who are absolutely positive that Democrats are leading us down a very dangerous path.)

Kansas Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop was pulled over by the Topeka Police Department and the Kansas Highway Patrol after driving the wrong way on a Topeka highway. Callers to 911 initially reported seeing a white SUV driving west in the eastbound lanes of I-470 starting near Wanamaker Road and minutes later on I-70 around 12:45 a.m. It was the Kansas Highway Patrol that identified the driver of the SUV as Republican Kansas Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Biden’s Push for Electric Cars: $174 Billion, 10 Years and a Bit of Luck. The president is hoping to make electric vehicles more affordable to turn a niche product into one with mass appeal. – Niraj Chokshi
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/business/biden-electric-vehicles-infrastructure.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Biden is a muscle-car guy — one of his most prized possessions is a 1967 Corvette that he got from his father. But he’s trying to make this an electric vehicle world. The $2 trillion infrastructure plan that he unveiled on Wednesday is aimed at tackling climate change in part by spending up to $174 billion to encourage Americans to switch to cars and trucks that run on electricity, not gasoline or diesel. That is a large investment but it might not be enough to push most Americans toward E.V.s. Despite rapid growth in recent years, electric vehicles remain a niche product, making up just 2 percent of the new car market and 1 percent of all cars, sport-utility vehicles, vans and pickup trucks on the road. They have been slow to take off in large part because they can cost up to $10,000 more than similar conventional cars and trucks. Charging E.V.s is also more difficult and slower than simply refilling the tank at far more prevalent gas stations.)
