— Children from poorer Chicago areas are still less likely to attend top-performing high schools, despite CPS efforts to even the playing field, new report finds – HANNAH LEONE (DIERSEN: When you were in grade school and in high school, how much money did your parents have? If you seek a government office or a political office, expect that your critics/opponents will paint your parents as having been filthy rich. My critics/opponents have always painted my parents as having been filthy rich. If that was true, then 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; and work on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother was raised on a farm and never attended high school.)

WASHINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater says “How to tell fact from fiction at the end of the Trump era.” (DIERSEN: What if the Democrat news media hired me to be 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 $85,084-$96,431/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.)

Rather than help the lawsuit succeed, virtually all the members of the class in GAO’s Chicago office “cut deals” with my GAO superiors.

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: Recount after 75-vote difference doesn’t stop DuPage auditor’s office from changing hands – Katlyn Smith (DIERSEN: What voids do you fill? I fill the tremendous Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) communication voids. It is beyond outrageous that Republicans in Illinois first learn of Republican news from the Democrat Facebook, Democrat Google, other Democrat websites, Democrat television stations, Democrat newspapers, Democrat etc. IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO should a) issue press releases and press advisories, b) keep diersen@aol.com on their press release and press advisory lists, and c) send out emails.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201201/recount-after-75-vote-difference-doesnt-stop-dupage-auditors-office-from-changing-hands
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new DuPage County auditor took office Tuesday for the first time in 12 years, but his election opponent says the historically close race isn’t over yet. Downers Grove Democrat William “Bill” White assumed the role as the county’s top financial watchdog even as his predecessor, Bob Grogan, prepares for “double overtime” in one of the tightest contests in the suburbs. Grogan has asked for a partial recount of the election results after coming up just 75 votes shy of victory out of more than 466,000 ballots cast. Grogan, a Downers Grove Republican who held the position for three terms, filed for a discovery recount in up to 25% of the precincts countywide. Wheaton Republican Tim Whelan also has requested a partial recount after falling short in his reelection bid for a seat on the forest preserve district board. Official results from last month’s election show Democratic challenger Jeff Gahris defeating Whelan by 718 votes. The recount proceedings are set to begin at 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 7, in the county administration building in Wheaton. Both Grogan and Whelan are represented by attorney Phillip Luetkehans. The exploratory process leaves some uncertainty over races that add to historic gains for Democrats in DuPage. In a partial recount, the county clerk’s office will make election materials available for scrutiny to help candidates determine if there are enough voter discrepancies to seek a court order for a complete recount. Pat Bond, the attorney for the county clerk’s office, said county election officials have had roughly 30 discovery recounts over the past 20 years, but none resulted in a full recount. Election authorities anticipate the partial recounts could be done by Wednesday, Dec. 9, at the earliest, Bond said. Grogan already has put out an appeal for donations if he should decide to forge ahead with a legal challenge. “I have confidence that assuming that we find a critical mass of differences that we’ll be able to fund the full recount if we can get there past the judge,” Grogan said. He’s cautiously hopeful as he prepares for an examination of ballots next week. “Auditors know what to look for, but they don’t know what the results are of what they look for until they’ve done it,” Grogan said Tuesday. “So I’m objective. I have an open mind. I am hopeful, but honestly, mistakes go both directions.”)

— Ex-Spokesperson Sues McLean County, Alleging Race Discrimination – RYAN DENHAM (DIERSEN: Like McNeal, I went public. When I turned 40 in 1988, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. Rather than help the lawsuit succeed, virtually all the members of the class in GAO’s Chicago office “cut deals” with my GAO superiors. Those deals included helping my GAO superiors a) get rid of my mentor, b) keep me off audits of IRS, c) give me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, d) always rank me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, e) not promote me beyond GS-13, and f) force me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)
https://www.wglt.org/post/ex-spokesperson-sues-mclean-county-alleging-race-discrimination#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Dion McNeal was the county’s communications specialist and one of the most public voices in its initial COVID-19 response last spring. McNeal, who is Black, was involved in a dispute over a county press release and social media post in June—just after the killing of George Floyd—that linked the trauma of racism and police brutality with public health. McNeal says that put him at odds with some county officials. He then went to the media with his concerns, in which he pointed to a lack of Black leadership in the county’s health department. He says he was fired a few days later. . .So on June 10, McNeal sent out the original version of the press release. The next day, McNeal was told he would have multiple job duties removed, according to the lawsuit. McNeal says he faced “severe adverse employment actions,” in contrast with a white co-worker who also sent a letter to the media June 19 raising concerns about the lack of diversity in the health department. That white co-worker was treated more favorably, the lawsuit claims. McNeal also claims sex discrimination. McNeal has identified himself as a “proud healthy Black queer HIV positive man.” “Similarly situated female employees … did not suffer the same adverse employment action McNeal did and, therefore, were treated more favorably,” his lawsuit reads. McNeal’s accusation of unlawful retaliation is based on how the county and health department reacted to him going public in his June 19 statement. McNeal claims he was “speaking as a public citizen on a matter of public concern and was engaged in activity protected by First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.” “McNeal suffered several adverse actions and deprivations likely to deter his protected activity, including without limitation, increased job scrutiny, placement on administrative leave, placement on a performance improvement plan, and termination of employment,” the lawsuit reads. “McNeal’s legally protected activity was at least a motivating factor in the defendants’ decision to impose the deprivations.”)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/12/01/trump-repeal-section-230-ndaa/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Section 230 is a broad, decades-old federal law that spares a wide array of sites and services from being held liable for the content posted by their users — and, in the process, the decisions about the posts, photos and videos that tech companies take down or leave online. It is considered one of the Web’s foundational laws, crafted in large part to facilitate free expression digitally. Many lawmakers — Democrats and Republicans — increasingly have come to question whether the protections are outdated, conferring legal immunity on tech giants at a time when they have failed to crack down on hate speech, election disinformation and other harmful content online. But Trump and his Republican allies have seized on the debate to advance their arguments that Facebook, Google, Twitter and others should be penalized for exhibiting systemic political bias against conservatives — a charge for which they have provided scant evidence, and one that tech giants long have denied.)

— American High Schools Go Woke Consultants cash in on radical changes to curricula nationwide – Charles Fain Lehman (DIERSEN: Are you conservative? Are you Republican? Are you White? Are you a male? Are you non-poor? Are you Protestant? Are you German American? How soon, if not already, will your high school “confess” that it made you a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all?)
https://freebeacon.com/campus/american-high-schools-go-woke/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In July, the leadership of Los Angeles’s elite Harvard-Westlake School issued a 20-page confessional about the school’s role in perpetuating “racism and injustice” and promised changes. The school, which sends dozens of kids to the Ivy League every year, will now teach 11th-grade U.S. history from a “critical race theory perspective.” And diversity consultancies, which routinely charge six figures for their services, will facilitate the school’s transformation at every step. On the East Coast, the wealthy Fairfax County public school district shelled out $20,000 for an hourlong speech from critical-race commentator Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. At one school in the district, faculty went further, disseminating “anti-racist” reading lists to parents and organizing students into “equity” committees. Dozens of schools across the country, both public and private, have taken similar steps. The perceived need to announce sweeping changes in leadership and curricula has been a boon to the growing diversity-consulting industry, which is designed to profit from racial discontent. A list of “anti-racism” resources, compiled just days after the death of George Floyd and featuring such writers as Kendi, Dr. Robin DiAngelo, and the authors of the New York Times‘s controversial 1619 project, was shared widely by colleges and high schools across the country.)

College tuition has increased 1,400% in the last four decades, demographics is about to deliver a body blow to demand, online higher education is finally maturing, and the best companies—as I’ve said here before—are working hard to retool their hiring systems to focus more on skills, less on college credentials.

GLOBAL POST
— As White Americans Die, Racial Inequality in the US May Get Much Worse – Benjamin Waddell (DIERSEN: How soon, under the Democrats, will Whites be required to publicly disclose a) how much money they have received so far from their parents and b) how much money they anticipate receiving from their parents? How soon, under the Democrats, will laws be passed that redistribute that money not only to minorities, but to women, to younger people, to those who have financial problems, to those who have health problems, to those who have other problems, to veterans, to non-Christians, to non-Protestants, to non-Italian Americans, to non-German Americans, to those whose ancestors have not been America for a long time, to moderates, to liberals, to Democrats, to Libertarians, to Greens, to Independents, to RINOs, to Trump-haters, to illegals, to etc.?)
https://theglobepost.com/2020/11/30/us-racial-inequality-worse/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States. In defeating President Donald Trump, Biden promised to heal a divided nation. In his victory speech, the president-elect said, “I sought this office to restore the soul of America. To rebuild the backbone of the nation — the middle class.” Biden’s middle-class vision for the US is possible, but without aggressive investments in education, healthcare, and well-paying jobs, America’s future may well look more like post-apartheid South Africa than the highly developed country it purports to be. How do I know? I followed the money. The United States is in the midst of a massive demographic shift. Since its inception in 1776, the country has been composed of largely white inhabitants with ancestral ties to Northern Europe. Through its first 200 years, the demographic predominance of Anglo-Americans was maintained by encouraging steady waves of European immigration alongside policies that facilitated ethnic cleansing, genocide, and the marginalization of minorities from the social, political, and economic spheres of the middle class. The Civil Rights movement legally ended the most aggressive legal barriers to social mobility for minorities. However, civil rights legislation did little to redistribute the massive wealth disparities between white Americans and everyone else. And without policy intervention, racial inequalities may be on the verge of getting much worse due to the nation’s shifting demographics. A New Dawn? The US is quickly becoming a minority-majority nation. In 1990, 76 percent of the population identified as non-Hispanic white, but by 2018, that number had dropped to 60 percent. And in urban cities, where most young people live, only 44 percent of inhabitants identify as non-Hispanic white. The nation’s demographic shift may signal a new dawn. As white Americans age and pass away, we should expect minority populations to become more involved in politics, middle-class professions, and political decision making. To be certain, the diversity of representation in US Congress — highlighted by representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Cori Bush — reflects the country’s shifting demographics. Still, demographic dominance does not necessarily equate to more equality. For example, in the world’s most unequal country, South Africa, white citizens account for just 9 percent of the population but control nearly 70 percent of the wealth, including 72 percent of the country’s land. In the US, the vast majority of wealth is also concentrated in the hands of white people. And in coming decades, barring policies designed to redistribute wealth, the situation stands to get much worse as aging white Americans begin leaving their estates to fewer and fewer heirs. According to the US Federal Reserve, 30 percent of white families report an inheritance or gift, compared to just 10 percent of Black families, 7 percent of Hispanic families, and 18 percent of other families. White families also receive substantially larger inheritances and are much more likely to receive financial support from other family members in the case of an emergency. Given these trends, in a country where wealth and power go hand in hand, a more diverse society may also come with a much greater concentration of financial authority in the hands of fewer and fewer white Americans. America’s Racial Wealth Gap In the US, the racial wealth divide has grown in recent decades. As of 2016, on average, white households held nearly $147,000 in wealth compared to just $6,591 for Latinos and $3,557 for African Americans. And over 33 percent of Black and Latino families have zero or negative net worth. This situation has grown even worse under the pandemic, as minorities have experienced far more job loss than white Americans. The massive wealth gap between white Americans and minorities was fueled by the mid-20th century’s redistributive politics, which predominantly benefited white families. In the 1940s, beneath the progressive policy foundation set by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, the US launched what would become the most prosperous period in the nation’s young history. Americans coming back from WWII went to school, bought cars and homes, and benefitted widely from government-funded programs designed to lift the working masses into the middle class. For the next 30 years, white Americans experienced growth in education, income, and wealth in a way that few groups ever have in world history. But due to systemic discrimination and racism, minorities were largely left out of this growth, and as a result, the racial wealth gap mushroomed. But today’s racial wealth gap may well pale compared to the economic fissures of the future. Today, white Americans are aging quickly. In fact, the most common non-Hispanic white American is now 58 years old, compared to just 11 for Latinos and 27 for African Americans. With far fewer children than their parents, white Americans are passing their accumulated wealth on to fewer and fewer heirs. As a result, wealth in the US is quickly becoming more and more concentrated in the hands of less and less white Americans. Dangerous Path The growth of racial inequality, coupled with a wave of conservative renewal, has set the United States on a dangerous and regressive path that threatens our nation’s democratic norms and values. Few events are as reflective of this point as the tumultuous and extremely divisive 2020 presidential election. So where do we go from here? The only way to avoid transforming into a plutocracy defined by hyper-racial inequality — à la South Africa — is to invest in the social mobility of minorities now. To do this, we must progressively raise taxes on the wealthy and immediately invest in public education, healthcare, and living wages for all Americans. The election of Joe Biden provides an opportunity to move in this direction. However, if the president-elect fails to significantly address wealth inequality over the next 4 years, democratic governance as we know it in the US may well collapse.)

https://patch.com/illinois/hinsdale/feds-sue-hinsdale-over-fair-housing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hinsdale is facing a powerful adversary in its effort to close a house that helps men with addictions — the U.S. Justice Department. On Tuesday, the federal government sued Hinsdale, one of Chicago’s wealthiest suburbs, and alleged the village violated the Fair Housing Act in its handling of the sober living house. Reached by phone, Village President Tom Cauley, who is mentioned frequently in the lawsuit, declined to comment, but would not say why. In July 2019, the Trinity Sober Living House opened at 111 N. Grant St. Neighbors started complaining before it opened. Last August, the village called for the house’s closure. Officials said the sober living house was a commercial operation in a residential neighborhood. The village also argued that with 10 people, the house violated the village’s rule for single-family zones — no more than three unrelated people in a house. After finding out earlier this month that a federal lawsuit would be filed, village officials dropped the argument about the house being a commercial operation, the lawsuit said. But it stuck to its ban on more than three unrelated people in a house. According to the lawsuit, on July 13, 2019, a Hinsdale resident emailed Cauley about the plan for the sober living house. The resident said neighbors were “very worried” about “having people with these issues living as a group in our neighborhood. Any restrictions on this within proximity to Monroe Elementary?” Neighbors also approached Michael Owens, the house’s founder. One accused Owens of bringing “alcoholics, drug addicts and pedophiles into our neighborhood.” Amid the uproar, Cauley wrote Owens on July 18, saying it had come to his attention that Trinity bought the property and intended to use it for 10 unrelated people. Cauley, an attorney, called it a “prohibited use,” but did not refer Owens to the “reasonable accommodation” process under the Fair Housing Act, the lawsuit said. Owens asked to meet with Cauley, but got no response. Instead, he had a July 30, 2019, meeting with the village’s attorney, Lance Malina, and two other top village officials. He gave them a tour of the house and told them the house would not admit sex offenders. At the close of the meeting, Malina told Owens about the reasonable accommodation process, which is intended for groups with disabilities, including those with addictions. In a later email, Owens asked whether he could have up to three residents in the meantime. Malina said he could not because the house was being marketed commercially. Days later, the village held a meeting of Hinsdale residents to share what officials were doing about the sober living house. Trinity was not invited, according to the lawsuit. Shortly after, Cauley sent a letter addressed “Dear Residents,” stating the village saw the sober living house as a prohibited use. The letter was not sent to Trinity, which learned about it more than a month later, according to the lawsuit. On Aug. 7, Trinity’s attorney, Steve Polin, sent a letter seeking a reasonable accommodation for the house under the Fair Housing Act. Contrary to the village’s practice, the administration did not forward the reasonable accommodation request to the Village Board, the lawsuit said. Instead, the next day, the village sued Trinity in DuPage County Court. As part of that litigation, a judge in June eliminated the limit on people in the house, citing the federal investigation, which Patch had written about. According to the lawsuit, Hinsdale’s argument that Trinity was a commercial operation and thus prohibited would essentially ban all group homes for people with disabilities. “This is because, for most group homes, the residents pay rent, the agency operating the group home receives compensation for the care and services being provided, most residents must attend employment or day services programs during the day, and residents are monitored by the provider agency.” Even under the village’s new position, the lawsuit said, only the smallest group homes would be allowed. During the county court proceedings, the village did not inform the judge that it received or intended to consider a reasonable accommodation request, according to the federal lawsuit. In a September 2019 interview, Village President Tom Cauley told the Hinsdalean that the village’s effort involved no fair housing violations. Trinity is in a zone where no more than three unrelated people can live in a house. Cauley told the Hinsdalean that “if we had 10 nuns living there, we would have a problem under the zoning code.” The village’s attorney, Malina, did not return a call for comment.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Epstein, a Democrat, is also a Harvard-educated behavioral psychologist and the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today. He’s also the guy who long ago sounded the alarm about the threat posed to our republican form of government by Google and its Big Tech brethren. None of this comes as a surprise to our Mark Alexander, who’s been following Dr. Epstein’s work for years. In mid-2019, Epstein testified before Congress, and the substance of his testimony lent support to what every fair-minded person who’s ever done a politics-related Google search has long suspected: “Data I’ve collected since 2016 show that Google displays content to the American public that is biased in favor of one political party — a party I happen to like, but that’s irrelevant. … Democracy as originally conceived, cannot survive Big Tech as currently empowered.” Too bad no one on Capitol Hill took him seriously.)

https://thetechportal.com/2020/11/25/twitter-to-start-providing-verification-badges-to-authentic-accounts-from-early-2021-asks-for-public-feedback-on-policy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Twitter has announced that it will start its account reverification process once again in 2021, providing ‘blue checks’ to users. In 2017, Twitter had ceased providing verification badges to its account holders, even if they were genuinely noteworthy and a public figure. The decision was taken surrounding an incident in which the social media giant had verified an account belonging to Jason Keller, a white supremacist who organized a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. As a result of this the company had to face a wave of criticism. It defended itself by making its policies more public, saying that the company provided blue verification badges to anyone of “public interest”. However, critics still mauled this move, saying that while genuine figures of public interest were on wait to get their accounts verified, verifying the account of a white supremacist was not something that should be of public interest. Therefore, in November 2017, Twitter ceased its action of verifying accounts on its platform. A year later, the social media platform informed that it was putting its work on the verification of accounts on indefinite hold. This time it said that this decision is being taken so that the company could direct its resources and focus on the integrity of the upcoming 2020 US elections.)

BUZZFEED NEWS
— 1 In 3 Americans Didn’t Vote. Should We Force Them To Next Time? Advocates for compulsory voting in the US are looking for a state to be an electoral guinea pig. They said forcing everyone to vote would fix a lot of problems. – Julia Reinstein (DIERSEN: How informed are the following about government and political news and commentary: your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, the leaders of your Republican township/ward party organization, the leaders of your Republican county party organization, your representative on the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee, the IRP officers, and Republican candidates on ballots in your precinct?)
https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/juliareinstein/us-compulsory-voting-mandatory
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But it could also help people become more informed voters, said Rapoport, the former Connecticut secretary of state. “If you’re a principal of a high school or a superintendent, and every 18-year-old was required to vote, would that make you more likely to do civic education as part of the curriculum? I think it would,” said Rapoport. “If you’re an employer, and every one of your employees was required to vote, would that make you likely to give them time off to participate? I think it would.” This hints at one of the most common objections to compulsory voting: the rather crass assumption that nonvoters are uneducated and ill-informed on politics, and therefore are better off not voting. Nelson of the NAACP LDF unequivocally rejected that argument, calling it “fully disingenuous.” “If people were truly concerned about people voting who aren’t educated, their focus should be on education and not the right to vote,” said Nelson.)

PEW RESEARCH
— APRIL 1, 2020 FLASHBACK: Americans’ main sources for political news vary by party and age – ELIZABETH GRIECO (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who discourage Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains, and everyone else, from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Better yet, I should sue them. I would focus on a) present and past leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, b) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct since 2000, and c) those who I have sued.)
https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2020/04/01/americans-main-sources-for-political-news-vary-by-party-and-age/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Americans turn to a wide range of media outlets for political and election news, but two stand out as especially common sources. In a late 2019 survey conducted as part of Pew Research Center’s Election News Pathways project, Fox News and CNN were named by the largest segments of U.S. adults as their main political news source – 16% and 12%, respectively. Six other news outlets – NPR, NBC News, ABC News, MSNBC, CBS News and The New York Times – were named by at least 2% of adults. The sources named by the remaining 51% of U.S. adults resulted in a long tail of more than 50 other individual brands. . .In addition to asking respondents whether they got political and election news in the past week from each of 30 different sources (selected to represent a range of news media across different platforms), respondents were asked in an open-ended question to write in the one main source they rely on most for this news. Researchers grouped responses together by brand: For example, “NY Times,” “NYT” and “nytimes.com” were all counted as indicating The New York Times. In all, about half (49%) of U.S. adults named one of these eight outlets as their main source for political and election news. The long list of all other individual outlets, named by fewer than 2% of respondents, included larger sources like The Washington Post, the BBC and Rush Limbaugh, as well as more niche sources such as One America News, The Young Turks and individual local newspapers. Some of the remaining respondents named social media sites (4% in total) or a medium without any specific outlet specified (“radio,” “the internet”). Finally, 13% of respondents declined to provide a recognizable news outlet, left the field blank or said they didn’t remember the name of their main news source. You can see a longer list of sources that were mentioned here. Partisanship in Americans’ main sources for political news Partisan alignment emerges in several of the most commonly named main sources for political and election news. Four of the eight sources named by at least 2% of U.S. adults are much more likely to be named by Democrats and independents who lean Democratic than by Republicans and GOP leaners: MSNBC, The New York Times, NPR and CNN. Fox News is the one outlet among these eight that is far more likely to be named by Republicans than by Democrats. Those who name Fox News and MSNBC display roughly the same high levels of partisanship. About nine-in-ten of those whose main source is Fox News (93%) identify as Republican, very close to the 95% of those who name MSNBC and identify as Democrats. Similarly, about nine-in-ten of those who name The New York Times (91%) and NPR (87%) as their main political news source identify as Democrats, with CNN at about eight-in-ten (79%). The three major broadcast news networks – ABC, CBS and NBC – have more of a mix of Democrats and Republicans among those who name these outlets as their main sources for political news. For example, the makeup of those who name NBC News as their main source is 57% Democratic versus 38% Republican.)

— America Is Being Betrayed On Two Fronts
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=98304
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Such treachery is precisely why Chapter 7 of my book “Rules for Defeating Radicals” (Available at Amazon) is characterized as the single most important chapter of the entire work. Its title “RINOs: The Essential Alinsky Fifth Column,” unmasks those so-called Republicans who claim to be “on the right” when convenient, but who always undercut real conservatism at critical junctures. They are often the determining factor in leftist successes against America. Until our side fully grasps who they are, and why they need to be rooted out and sent packing, we can always count on them to do the dirtiest of leftist “dirty work” at the bidding of the Democrats. With the 2020 election theft hardly a “done deal,” and those Americans, including the Trump Team, who seek to uphold the law and Constitution fighting for their lives and the very future of the nation, such a proclamation from the likes of Christie is the ultimate effort to deliver us a fatal stab in the back. It comes on the heels of other similar duplicity from the predictable cadre of RINOs, including the McCain clan, former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. The propensity of self-serving and unscrupulous political gamers to swarm like moths towards the seeming brightest lights of power is nothing new. Still, their disloyalty needs to be underscored, and they need to be indelibly tagged as forever untrustworthy. Their willingness to suddenly and loudly proclaim themselves to be the “Second Coming of Ronald Reagan” come the next election cycle is no sign of a “change of heart.” Rather, it further proves their total contempt for the conservative voting base whom they are seeking to con, in preparation for future betrayals. From their perspective, the wholesale theft of the 2020 Presidential Election is really no big deal, and only reflects the ongoing ebb and flow of American politics.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/24/education-divide-deepens-democrats-worry-future-power/6325025002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden described the presidential race as “Scranton versus Park Avenue.” He slammed tax cuts for billionaires. He touted that he would be a state school graduate, not another Ivy Leaguer, in the Oval Office. Months before Election Day, the Biden campaign adopted an economic populist message aimed directly at white working-class voters, convinced they could peel off a small portion of President Donald Trump’s base. Yet despite Biden’s election victory, this demographic – white voters without college degrees – remained just as loyal as ever to the president, defying public polling before the election that suggested Democrats were poised for small inroads. For Biden, wins in battleground states came thanks to growing support in affluent suburbs around cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Detroit where the president-elect expanded margins with a new Democratic stronghold: white voters who graduated college. The 2020 election widened the education polarization – a largely urban-rural divide that has come to define American politics, producing a mixed bag for Democrats. “The biggest thing that came out of this election was that education polarization – the gap between college-educated voters and (non-college-educated voters) – actually increased, rather than decreased like the polls predicted it would,” said David Shor, a Democratic polling and data expert who advised liberal political action committees this cycle. “(Democrats) basically treaded water in the least-educated areas and gained a lot in the educated areas.” Even as Biden beat Trump in the popular vote by more than 6 million votes, Democrats aren’t expected to gain control of the Senate, lost several House seats and failed to flip a single state legislature. Their rejection among white working-class voters, particularly in rural areas and small towns, helped lead to the disappointments. Once viewed as the party of working people, Democrats now rely on the Whole Foods shopper. At the same time, Democrats saw support slip among Black voters, their most loyal constituency, and Latino voters. Although Biden won Black voters overwhelmingly 87%-12%, Trump grew his support by 4 percentage points from 2016, according to exit polls. The shift was more significant among Hispanic voters. While Biden still won Latino voters overall, Trump performed 7 percentage points better than four years ago. He improved his margins in 78 out of 100 majority-Latino counties, according to an analysis from POLITICO. For years, Democrats expressed confidence that the country’s increasingly diverse, less-white electorate would give them an edge long-term over Republicans. Now, some in the party have concerns: That relying so heavily on urbanites and suburbanites puts them at a disadvantage electorally to capture the Senate, hold on to the House and retain the presidency. . .The fact Biden still struggled with non-college-educated white voters, according to Grossman, reflects the overall shift toward politics based on social and cultural divisions rather than economic. The same trend is found in European nations like the United Kingdom. With his cultural – not economic – brand of populism, Trump fanned fears about racial equity protests that erupted in cities. He pushed for “law and order” during the campaign, slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, and accused Democrats of being soft on violence and anti-police. He warned Biden would turn the U.S. into a “socialist” country and accused the Democrat of wanting to take away Americans’ guns. Trump even said, “There will be no God” if Biden were elected. “Voters are more associated with the party that they share social and cultural views with rather than necessarily economic policy opinions,” Grossman said.)

The money for that, and for a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 that I bought in 1967, came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. My parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969.)

FAST COMPANY
— 6 questions to ask to find out if you’re an ethical leader The director of Ethical Imperatives contends that ethical leaders possess six traits that command, not demand, loyalty. – YONASON GOLDSON (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents demand blind loyalty to them and to them only.)
https://www.fastcompany.com/90568314/6-questions-to-ask-to-find-out-if-youre-an-ethical-leader

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the workplace, bosses and managers may hold absolute power. But how they wield that power will determine the loyalty and, by natural consequence, the productivity of their employees. If you want to be respected as a king and not reviled as a despot, you need to command, not demand, loyalty. And the way your employees see you will depend on whether you conduct yourself according to the principles of ethics. In these complicated times, acting ethically is not as simple as it once was. Social norms change seemingly every day. Often, even the right choice produces collateral damage to real or perceived inequity. What is a leader to do? Loyalty is not acquired by merely making ethical decisions. More fundamentally, it comes from being recognized as an ethical person. The qualities that describe an ethical leader can be enumerated using a convenient acronym: E.T.H.I.C.S. An ethical leader asks the following questions to determine if they exhibit these qualities. . .As an ethical leader, you see your choices through a different lens and recognize that the culture you create will determine your bottom line. Most of all, you naturally command the loyalty that inspires others to join you in your purpose, to share your passion, and to commit themselves to your vision. By promoting a culture of success all around you, the rewards of that success will inevitably follow.)

Before that, they stressed that my Democrat GAO superiors 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. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors 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. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Savvy Democratic organizations then actively promoted voting by mail. For example, Lake County’s Democratic organization sent letters to registered voters detailing their options, including vote by mail, party Chair Lauren Beth Gash said. They also called people to inform them of those options and to motivate them to vote. Meanwhile, Trump and other Republicans groused about possible election fraud in voting by mail. Relatively few promoted it. “The Democrats had a messaging advantage,” said Kent Redfield, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Illinois at Springfield. ‘A Democratic lean’ Election results have shown most people who vote by mail back Democratic candidates. “Vote by mail does have a Democratic lean,” Redfield said. “New voters, particularly younger voters, find voting by mail very easy and low-cost in terms of time and effort.” On the flip side, Election Day tallies appear more Republican than the final totals. For proof of this partisan split, look at the Underwood-Oberweis showdown.)

— The Constitutional Way to Defeat Cancel Culture – Mike Gonzalez (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, the more of the following that you are, the more that you will be cancelled: law enforcement officer, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, draft avoider (except Joe Biden and Bill Clinton), Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Ever-increasingly, the more of the aforesaid that you are, the more that Democrat and RINO employers and organizations get rid of you.)
https://www.heritage.org/the-constitution/commentary/the-constitutional-way-defeat-cancel-culture
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “To start dismantling identity politics, then, and begin the civil rights movement 2.0, we need to stop the government from handing out benefits to those with a claim of victimhood simply because of membership in a protected group.” Suborning Americans to adhere to identity categories takes many forms. One clear example is preferential contracting programs that reward businesses certifi­ed as “disadvantaged business enterprises,” or DBEs. The owner of a business obtains certification as a DBE by being a member of a victim group and swearing in an affidavit that he or she has been “subjected to ethnic prejudice or cultural bias.” Having succeeded in life by overcoming this obstacle does not prevent certification. University of Maryland Professor George La Noue draws the only possible conclusion: “Thus, social disadvantage is, as a practical matter, established at birth, and cannot be challenged by evidence of a successful life.” DBEs, obviously, need to be discontinued. Indeed, the federal government should conduct an inventory to find out how many federal statutes make non-competitive awards based on race. The last time the Congressional Research Service (CRS) did this, in 2011, it found that there were nearly 300 federal statutes that “specifically refer to race, gender, or ethnicity as factors to be considered in the administration of federal programs.” The report added that, though its authors had been “as comprehensive as possible,” their findings were “by no means exhaustive.” The next obvious step is to declare that these statutes contravene the Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. One of the most visible set-aside programs is affirmative action in university admissions. Vulnerable high school seniors worried about getting into a good college are being encouraged not just to tick any of the identity boxes, but also to produce victimhood narratives that will get them into the college of their choice. This will take the courts, in the end, to resolve, though the Trump Justice Department took an important step in informing Yale this summer that its admissions program violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act in discriminating against white and Asian-American applicants. Lastly, the least recognized form of racial discrimination is one of the most important: the doctrine of disparate impact. This allows discrimination to be found in a policy’s outcome, not its intent. This is a civil rights lawyer’s dream and leads to arbitrary legal action, since all policies have a “disparate effect” on people, especially when the categories are artificial.)

TOWNHALL
— Solutions to Conservative Angst in 2020 – Loyd Pettegrew and Jim McCoy
https://townhall.com/columnists/loydpettegrew/2020/11/22/solutions-to-conservative-angst-in-2020-n2580431
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservatives should withdraw complete support from all news media that offer politicized opinion in place of carefully documented fact. Don’t subscribe to or buy progressive newspapers like The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, or even your local newspaper if it panders to the left. There are really good conservative daily newspaper alternatives like the New York Post, Epoch Times, Conservative Daily News, American Thinker and Washington Examiner. Pew Research reports newsroom employment dropping 51% over the past decade. Force them to downsize to even further. Falling readership will force advertisers to take their business elsewhere and these newspapers will fail. The same can apply to major television and cable news channels. Be very selective in choosing which to watch. Punish companies and their CEOs that virtue signal by stopping your purchases of their products and services. Be it the NBA, pro football, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Nike, Levi Strauss, Intel, Peloton, etc., choose an alternative or go without. Choosing Dunkin Donuts over Starbucks, for example, will save money and you will be doing your part, as Nancy Reagan said, by “just saying no.” If you own stock in one of these leftist companies that support progressive causes, send a letter to the Chairman of the Board (not CEO) and tell him/her of your disgust at their sponsorship of Marxist causes and that you will relieve your 401K and investment portfolio of their stock and reinvesting your hard earned dollars in their competitors’ stock. Some professional athletes have taken center stage expressing their opinions and prejudices on social issues. We should be very leery of such social activists. Being athletic entertainers doesn’t mean they have the intellect or moral character to become trusted oracles. In many cases they are more representative of the problem than the solution. Organizations like 2nd Vote can help you discern which companies and organizations align with your beliefs. Stop using social media and Amazon Unburden your social media life as well as your reliance on Amazon. They are physically, psychologically and financially addictive! We have laid ourselves at the feet of leftist, BigTech gazillionaires who only have their own interests at heart. They are drunk with vainglorious power and self-importance, and are buying off Congress to stay unregulated. Our world would become a better place when we connect meaningfully with real people. Unsubscribe or simply wean yourself off all but the most vital social media usage. When in doubt, pick up the phone and have a real conversation with your friends; group text rather than Facebook them. Twitter is an ego trip that you don’t need to take. Frequent local stores when buying things, supporting your local economy; you can get comparable goods at reasonable prices at big box stores or product websites. Use UPS or Fedex to ship. Don’t send your children or grandchildren to left-leaning schools because if they are not yet, they will likely come home brainwashed. Conservatives must become more involved at all levels of public and private education. The National Education Association (NEA) voted to focus teacher in-service programs on “white fragility” rather than quality classroom educational practices. It holds monopolistic control over public education as a labor union, strongly aligned with liberal Democrats. Most parents prefer quality teaching in math, English, reading/writing or science over K-12 leftist indoctrination. Public boards of education must be reclaimed by conservative parents. With the Covid pandemic, many parents are eschewing regular schools dominated by teachers’ unions for charter schools, homeschooling and teaching pods, less influenced by left-leaning politics. New data show that these alternatives provide a superior choice and so are under attack by the NEA. The Biden administration will double down on these attacks. The vast majority of colleges and universities are completely leftist. State legislatures must become more vigilant of the prioritization of Marxism in higher education over democracy and the free enterprise system. Influence your children to attend politically conservative colleges like Hillsdale and Claremont, pursuing degrees in engineering, accounting, finance and STEM programs. Note, even medical school programs are now becoming woke as Stanley Goldfarb has opined, “A new wave of educational specialists is increasingly influencing medical education. They emphasize “social justice” that relates to health care only tangentially. This approach is the result of a progressive mind-set that abhors hierarchy of any kind and the social elitism associated with the medical profession in particular.”)

NEW YORK POST
— The Left’s ‘big-turnout’ myth and other commentary – Editorial
https://nypost.com/2020/11/21/the-lefts-big-turnout-myth-and-other-commentary/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: In March, President Trump warned that expanding mail-in voting would mean “you’d never have a Republican elected” again. Yet this year’s election raises doubts: With a “record-high turnout,” the GOP “not only held its own” but “exceeded expectations at every level.” Joe Biden won “a comfortable victory” in the popular vote, but “the GOP’s resounding success in down-ballot races” dealt a “significant blow” to the myth that “a latent majoritarian mandate exists for the progressive agenda.”)
