WASHINGTON POST
— A library wanted a New York Times subscription. Officials refused, citing Trump and ‘fake news.’ – Antonia Noori Farzan (DIERSEN: If you were me, what would you do encourage Republican Party leaders in Illinois to encourage Republicans in Illinois to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/11/05/new-york-times-citrus-county-florida-library-subscription-rejected-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The librarians of Citrus County, Fla., had what seemed like a modest wish: A digital subscription to the New York Times. For about $2,700 annually, they reasoned, they could offer their roughly 70,000 patrons an easy way to research and catch up on the news. But when their request came before the Citrus County commission last month, local officials literally laughed out loud. One commissioner, Scott Carnahan, declared the paper to be “fake news.” “I agree with President Trump,” he said. “I will not be voting for this. I don’t want the New York Times in this county.” In a move that is generating intense online backlash, all five members of the commission agreed to reject the library’s request. The discussion took place Oct. 24, the same day the Trump administration announced plans to cancel federal agencies’ subscriptions to the Times and The Washington Post. While there’s no apparent connection — the Citrus County meeting began several hours before the Wall Street Journal broke the news of the new edict — the controversy unfolding in central Florida highlights how politicians nationwide are parroting the president’s disparaging rhetoric about the media.)

Ever-increasing, they make it clear that they want Republicans to promote booze, gambling, pot, and other vices.)

— What is the Purpose of the GOP? – Richard Moss
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/10/what_is_the_purpose_of_the_gop.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our “one party” system in Washington remains profoundly corrupt and self-serving. It consists of career politicians from both parties, special interests, donors, and lobbyists, all of whom agree on one thing: growing the size of government. The Republican Party, in its budgeting and voting, is a left-of-center party; it is, as I often referred to it as, the Republican wing of the Democratic Party. With an increasingly Marxist Democratic Party, and no serious conservative opposition from “soft-progressive” Republicans, the trajectory of the nation is all to the left: more spending, more programs, more socialism, and ultimately more tyranny.)

— Employee recognition a vital part of workplace culture – Johnny C. Taylor Jr. (DIERSEN: In October of 1993, when I was 45 years old, I had 25 years of Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) credits, and therefore, I was eligible to take GAO’s $25,000 buyout offer and to take early retirement. Of course, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious about that. I had worked for GAO less than 14 years. I had earned almost 3 years of full-time CSRS credits while I had worked only part-time for the Post Office 1966-1969. I had earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits while I worked for IRS 1971-1980.)

That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited Waubonsee Community College. Trump-haters complain that they were not notified.
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/aurora-beacon-news/ct-abn-community-reacts-to-devos-visit-waubonsee-st-0918-20190917-pxgdbg4pobhz5krkigewqc4whq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Waubonsee students who are part of the national group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlan — MEChA — said they were disappointed to not have notice of the visit because they said it silenced them. The group works to spread awareness of immigrant rights, help connect students who are underrepresented minorities and help first-generation students navigate higher education, group leaders said. While touring Jefferson High School in Rockford Monday, dozens of protestors, many wearing red T-shirts, carried signs and gathered outside the school to greet DeVos, according to the Rockford Register Star. “Waubonsee tends to show this image that we have a very diverse student population, but we had someone from the Trump administration who has attacked our communities here,” said Giselle Gonzalez, Waubonsee sophomore and president of the MEChA group at the school. . .“At a place like our college where there is a large population of Latinx students, that’s something the school should have thought twice about before letting her come on campus,” Rodriguez said. “It just doesn’t feel safe to be surprised like that.”)
