VANCOUVER SUN
— NDP, Liberal and Green parties have subtly different plans to keep people safe while campaigning – Lori Culbert (DIERSEN: Of course, ever-increasing, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the pandemic and because of my terrible demographics (old, overweight, White, male, type-2 diabetic, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, and owner of six American nameplate cars and one SUV), I should NOT do anything to help elect candidates and b) I should resign as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Nevertheless, yesterday, I finished hand-delivering door-to-door the following to all 150 homes in my precinct a) that had at least one Republican or Independent voter and b) that had no Democrat yard signs: joint candidate piece from the Milton Township Republican Organization, sample ballot, literature from the 14 Republican candidates on the ballot in my precinct who provided campaign literature, and my GOPUSA Illinois business card. Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)
https://vancouversun.com/news/politics/bc-election/dont-pet-voters-dogs-or-sneeze-on-campaign-literature-a-few-of-the-b-c-party-covid-tips-for-staff

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The three main parties supplied their safety plans to Postmedia, and there are obvious similarities around mask-wearing, social distancing, handwashing and staying home when sick. But there are also differences. At the NDP camp, workers from different parts of the campaign are “bubbled” and not allowed to interact with their fellow party workers. That is not only a drag for the Smith brothers, but for senior bus staffer Marie Della Mattia and her daughter, Emily, who works at NDP headquarters. The NDP says its rules are based on guidelines from WorkSafeBC and Henry’s office: At headquarters, staff work in small cohort teams that arrive and eat at different times while those on the bus sit in spread-out seats and hand sanitize after every stop. On Thursday, the party issued new protocols for journalists, which includes an online form that asks for symptoms and collects contact-tracing information. The Liberals’ safety plan includes many of those same elements, but also details minimizing the number of workers in campaign offices, prohibiting the public from entering the offices or requiring appointments, and using plastic or shower curtains barriers when physical distance cannot be maintained. The Liberals also have rules for canvassing, which includes limiting physical contact with doorbells and railings, hand-sanitizing between each house, never going into voters’ houses, and never petting their dogs and cats. Campaign material should be carried in a plastic bag, workers must “take every possible precaution to avoid sneezing” on it, and it should never be handed directly to a voter. Liberal events should have no more than 50 people, ideally be held outside, provide masks and sanitizer and, when possible, have assigned seating, the party says. In its safety material, the Green party acknowledges that “COVID-19 has created a situation where campaigning is going to look very different.” For starters, canvassers should wear gloves and, this year more than ever, respect a voter who isn’t interested. “Canvassers must understand that the public may not be comfortable with this type of activity at their place of residence. Team members will need to be polite, respectful and sensitive to people’s comfort levels,” the Green material says. Only team members in the same household bubble should travel in a car together. If additional people must be in the car, roll the windows down. In campaign offices, door handles, printers and sink taps must be cleaned several times a day, and Green party volunteers should avoid using common coffee pots, kettles or microwaves — which could make for some tired and hungry volunteers. Even when it comes to donations, the rules have changed. The Green party would prefer “contactless” transactions, presumably e-transfers, or old-fashioned cash can be dropped into a container with a slot on top.)

DUPAGE COUNTY ELECTION DIVISION
— DuPage County Early Voting off to great start – Hundreds vote in person on first day
https://www.dupageco.org/Election/Election_Commission_News/2020/63514/
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: The first day of Early Voting in DuPage County has gone smoothly, with hundreds of voters – some of whom lined up outside the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton before dawn – having cast their ballots by mid-afternoon. “We’re quite happy with how it’s gone today,” DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said. “Though the line of voters snaked through the Fairgrounds parking lot today, people were patient, they practiced social distancing, and everyone – voters, pollworkers, and my staff – worked together to make this first day run smoothly.” At 8 a.m. the doors to the polling place at the Fairgrounds were opened and Kaczmarek announced, “the polls are open!” At the close of the day, 660 voters had exercised their right to vote at the Fairgrounds. The site is open 8 a.m. thru 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Oct. 16, and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 17. Hours, as well as the number of Early Voting sites, expand on Oct. 19, when 18 sites all over the county will open to voters offering touchscreen voting. The current Fairgrounds site will offer paper ballots through Nov. 2. Plenty of PPE, including hand sanitizer, masks, and latex gloves, were available for voters. A professional cleaning crew wiped down surfaces throughout the day at the Fairgrounds voting site. “It’s great to see such enthusiasm by voters on the first day,” Kaczmarek said, “but we still have 39 days until Nov. 3, and you can vote on any of those days, either in-person or in the comfort of your home by mail ballot.” Thursday was also the day the Clerk’s Office began sending mail ballots to voters. Those ballots should start showing up in mailboxes of voters who’ve requested them soon. “If you’ve applied for a mail ballot, there’s no need to vote in person,” Kaczmarek said. “More than 159,000 DuPage County voters have already requested mail ballots, and my office will make sure each of those voters gets their ballot. Voters still have just over four weeks to request a mail ballot, but we recommend that if you plan to vote by mail, you apply for your ballot online as soon as possible. “This election may feel very different from any previous election – from the masks and plastic shields at the polling places to the disinformation coming from many quarters, but voting is still the same,” Kaczmarek said. “There are three ways to vote – by mail, in-person before Election Day, and in-person on Election Day. I urge voters to make the choice that is easiest and safest for them.”)

https://www.npr.org/2020/09/22/915843471/trump-expands-ban-on-racial-sensitivity-training-to-federal-contractors
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Trump said on Twitter on Tuesday that he had expanded the ban on “efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies” to contractors doing business with the federal government and those receiving grant funds. “Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t there’s nothing in it for you!” he tweeted. Earlier this month, Trump announced efforts to promote “patriotic education” and railed against students learning about systemic racism. He signed an executive order that requires contracts to now include a provision that says contractors with the federal government will not have “workplace training that inculcates in its employees any form of race or sex stereotyping or any form of race or sex scapegoating” or face the cancellation of contracts. “Instructors and materials teaching that men and members of certain races, as well as our most venerable institutions, are inherently sexist and racist are appearing in workplace diversity trainings across the country, even in components of the Federal Government and among Federal contractors,” the order says. The trainings cited include references to white privilege and systemic racism.)

https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/09/21/nyt-elites-ghost-their-illegal-migrants-in-coronavirus-crash/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wealthy Americans have quietly fired and discarded many of their illegal migrant house cleaners since the coronavirus economic crash, often without warning or compensation, says the New York Times: . . . The article, and the quoted pro-migration activists, only hinted at the hypocrisy of elites who applaud migration and diversity but discard their illegal migrant employees without warning or compensation. . . But the article also sidelined the damage done to Americans’ labor market by the creation of several underclass workforces within the U.S. labor market. For example, the article glossed over the reality that employers know they can hire low-wage illegals at minimal legal risk, so undermining the hard-won labor market rights of Americans. . . The passive-voice phrase “were largely replaced” hides the rarely-noted movement in the 1970s and 1980s by upper-income whites to hire illegal, grateful, and compliant Latinos instead of proud American citizens — mostly blacks — for domestic chores. “The reporter seems to be avoiding the question of why the American women, having won these new worker protections, just coincidentally happened to stop working in this field and be replaced by Hispanic women,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors reduced immigration and tight labor markets.)

— Illinois Governor Pritzker’s Claim Of Following the Science And Data Appears To Be False…According To The Data – KIRK ALLEN & JOHN KRAFT
https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2020/09/illinois-governor-pritzkers-claim-of-following-the-science-and-data-appears-to-be-false-according-to-the-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As if all this “science and data” the Governor claims he is following is not troubling enough, how about the tying of that data to the mask mandate? Early on the so-called “experts” warned that the use of masks for the healthy was not advised. In fact, it was discouraged for several reasons, of which one was because it could lead to more cases because people would be fiddling with their masks because they are not used to wearing one and that would lead to more cases. Looking at the data, Illinois hit a low from the first peak just after the middle of June. May 29th was the face mask mandate. About three weeks after that mandate, positive cases climbed. Is it possible the data is telling us the masks were doing exactly what the “experts” told us in the beginning? Considering I have yet to find one person who washes their mask after being out in public, it is quite possible that masks are a contributing factor to the increased numbers. Don’t take this to mean masks don’t help to slow the spread. We are simply suggesting the data points to more cases shortly after the mask mandate and that mandate had no guidance on the importance of making sure the mask you wear does not have a valve, is disposed of after use, or washed regularly if you’re using homemade masks. In the words of Moses, “Let My People Go”.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/willalexander/2020/09/20/sports-world-gets-equality-all-wrong-n2576508
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The fatal flaw in the idea that America is rife with racial inequality is a failure to distinguish between two kinds of equality: the equality of blacks as human beings, and the equality of their performance in the social and economic arenas. The root of so many stubborn problems in America’s inner cities have less to do with skin color than with behavior. But instead of getting to the root of the problem, academia, corporate-types, the media, Hollywood, and now professional sports have become a septic system that pipes the rotten narrative of victimhood all over the nation, forcing regular folks to clean up all the crap. Confusing race-based inequality with performance-based inequality is what’s getting business looted and demolished, and people beaten and killed in the Twilight Zone known as the Black Lives Matter movement. Of all industries, the “put-up-or-shut-up” world of sports should know better. “Put up or shut up” is all about performance. A player’s history, pedigree, race, likeability, good looks – or bad looks – is completely separate from his value to the game. His value to the game is measured solely by his performance.)

HARTFORD COURANT
— The governor was right to impose fines for not wearing a mask. But is it enough? – Editorial (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters a) viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn those like me who wear a mask only when Pritzker requires me to and b) hint/imply/argue/shout that to wear a mask is to shout your hatred of Trump.)
https://news.yahoo.com/governor-impose-fines-not-wearing-101100131.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Gov. Ned Lamont announced last week that people caught not wearing a mask could face a $100 fine, cries of “King Ned” came quickly. Hecklers turned out to Gov. Lamont’s public appearances, carrying signs reading “liberty or death” and “stop the tyranny.” One Naugatuck man with a bullhorn said the governor had no right to require his 3-year-old daughter to wear a mask. Gov. Lamont has indeed issued a fair number of executive orders since he declared a state of emergency in the spring, and it’s important for the public to ask if he is overextending his authority — but in many cases, the answer is clearly “no,” and the mask protesters are missing the point and risking lives. The $100 fine for not wearing a mask is perfectly appropriate and, it appears, necessary to encourage compliance with a simple and painless act that saves lives. The legislature could easily impose the same fine. No overextension here. In one part of Indonesia, people who were caught not wearing masks were punished by being forced to dig graves for people who had died of COVID-19. A $100 fine doesn’t send as clear a message. It’s unlikely that municipal police are going to swarm public places and hand out $100 fines to the maskless, although they should make it a priority. In the end, the choice really remains with individuals. But this isn’t just about a handful of people refusing to wear masks. The data tell us that the anti-maskers are far from alone in ignoring common sense.)

NEW JERSEY
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: Slapping fines on those who don’t wear masks in stores advances in N.J. – Brent Johnson
https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/09/plan-to-slap-fines-on-those-who-dont-wear-masks-in-nj-stores-moves-closer-to-murphys-desk.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite an intense debate, New Jersey is one step closer to establishing a fine of up to $500 for shoppers who don’t properly wear a mask inside stores during the coronavirus pandemic. The state Assembly’s appropriations committee voted 7-4, along party lines, to approve the bill that says anyone who enters a store with a visible sign requiring them to wear a mask is subject to a fine of $50 to $500 if they don’t wear a face covering over both their nose and mouth. Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order in April mandating that people that enter stores in the Garden State must wear masks. Under this Democratic-sponsored bill (A4453), violators would face a fine of between $50 and $500 if they enter a store with a visible sign requiring customers wear masks but don’t have a face covering over both their nose and mouth. Originally, the bill carried a possible 30-day jail sentence, but that has since been dropped.)

Trump made it mainstream.” I should write a book about RINOs who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned me as being a far-right fringe extremist and even worse things. I would focus on many present and past RINO leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, etc. I would focus on those who reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and/or equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, 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 even worse things. RINOs hate conservatives, that is, they hate the base of the Republican Party. RINOs work closely with Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, moderates, and liberals to destroy the Republican Party.)
