— First Amendment authority: Pritzker’s demand that paper unpublish story ‘extreme measure’ – W.J. Kennedy (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have punished me and who continue to punish me for including links in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to articles they do not like. They have been emboldened by those who could/should come to my defense, but have not.)
https://prairiestatewire.com/stories/529040855-first-amendment-authority-pritzker-s-demand-that-paper-unpublish-story-extreme-measure
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A First Amendment authority says a demand by Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office that a central Illinois newspaper unpublish a story about the governor’s progressive income tax proposal was “highly unusual.” “Push back from a politician about facts being wrong or problems with the overall tone of the piece is what you normally see,” David Snyder, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition, told Prairie State Wire. “And if the paper did get the facts wrong, it should correct them immediately. But asking for a retraction of an entire article is a pretty extreme measure.” Pritzker’s office reportedly asked the Jacksonville Journal-Courier last month to unpublish a story by The Center Square about the governor’s plans to cut spending if voters in November shoot down his plans to shift from a flat income tax to a progressive one. The tax shift proposal, an amendment to the state constitution, is on the ballot this fall. In a follow-up story, The Center Square wrote that a spokesman for the governor, Jordan Abudayyeh, sent an email to the paper’s editor saying that the article was “flawed” and lacked context. “Ultimately, it would be prudent to take down this partisan content masquerading as news,” she was quoted as writing in the email. The Center Square said that a video accompanying story on its website shows Pritzker saying what he is quoted as saying in the story. “The governor’s office did not alert The Center Square to any errors in the Feb. 7 article, headlined ‘If voters reject progressive income tax, Pritzker promises to cut state spending, and no corrections were published,” the follow-up story said. Snyder, an attorney, said that only the example more extreme that he’s aware of is a private Swiss bank, Julius Baer Group, in 2008 getting a court order to shut down Wikileaks.org in a dispute over postings on the site by a former employee of the bank. The ruling was later overturned.)

https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/29/media-reacts-america-most-coronavirus-cases-world/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some media pundits and politicians appeared to celebrate the U.S. reaching the most novel coronavirus cases in the world in an attempt to dunk on President Donald Trump. Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tried to call the media out for its “glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more CoronaVirus cases than China” on Sunday morning. Many members of the press attacked him for the allegation, despite some of their own co-workers being involved in celebrating the news as a way to attack Trump.)

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

My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class. My ACT score was only 24.

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

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

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

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

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even the traditionally-Republican stronghold of DuPage County saw a massive dip. The west suburban county used to be so important that in November of 2000, then Governor George W.

In 2004, during the Primary Election, Republicans pulled 58% of the Primary Election ballots, nearly 87,000 voters. This year, Republicans in DuPage County only made up 26% of the ballots cast, down nearly 50,000 voters.)

March 25 Morning Edition

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Primary not postponed, but no word when city election results will be final Of the 117,120 vote-by-mail applications sent out before last week’s primary, 60,812 have been returned as of Tuesday morning, according to figures from the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. – Rachel Hinton (DIERSEN: When will the election results be final in your county? How many vote-by-mail applications were sent out in your county? How many were Democrat and how many were Republican? How many mail-in-ballots have been returned and how many are Democrat and how many are Republican? How many mail-in-ballots were rejected and how many of those were Democrat and how many were Republican and for what reasons were they rejected? How many mail-in-ballots have been entered into the system and how many of them are Democrat and how many are Republican?) 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2020/3/24/21192910/primary-postponed-mail-in-illinois-chicago-election-results
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Of those, 1,339 ballots were rejected for either being postmarked too late or for having an invalid or missing signature. Some may have chosen to vote in person instead of submitting a mail ballot, Allen said. “Our job is to make sure we count every legal ballot,” Allen said. Staff at the city’s electoral board got back to work Tuesday after a few days off and have resumed their four main post-election tasks: vote-by-mail ballot processing, a review of provisional ballots, a precinct canvass — which means a review of all documents and tapes from the various precinct voting locations — and a 5% retabulation of ballots. That process entails the Illinois State Board of Elections randomly selecting five ballot scanners used on Election Day or during early voting and running all ballots cast at those locations through the scanners again to verify that they were counted correctly, Allen said. But there’s no word yet on when last week’s primary results will be certified. “We also have to wait for any late arriving, but on-time postmarked, vote-by-mail ballots, so by law we cannot conclude anything by at least March 31 and also by law we’re allowed to wait at least 21 days after the Election Day to issue the proclamation,” Allen said. That would be April 7. Cook County Clerk Karen Yarbrough released unofficial results for suburban areas on Saturday. There are still some mail ballots that the county can receive so long as they arrive by March 31, James Scalzitti, a spokesman for the clerk, said in an email. Of the 60,000 mail ballots that were sent out by the clerk’s office, around 33,000 will have been tabulated by Wednesday morning, Scalzitti said. The county’s results are expected be certified in early April.)

— DuPage County Board Members Participate In Meeting Via Phone – BERNIE TAFOYA (DIERSEN: According to this article, “Members of the public were not allowed at the DuPage County board meeting so as not to increase the potential spread of COVID-19.” Those who want to abolish the Open Meetings Act in Illinois ( https://www.bettergov.org/news/a-guide-to-the-open-meetings-act-oma-in-illinois/ ) are overjoyed.)
https://wbbm780.radio.com/articles/dupage-county-board-members-participate-in-meeting-via-phone
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The DuPage County Board conducted its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday in Wheaton, and while all board members participated in the meeting, not all were physically in the board room. “There [are> 11 members present and seven participating on telephone,” said DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin following a roll call at the beginning of Tuesday morning’s meeting. Cronin started off the first meeting of the board since Governor J.B. Pritzker’s stay-at-home order saying that the board “will continue to conduct the people’s business while adhering to public health and safety guidelines.” He noted that board members who were at the meeting in-person were at least six feet apart from each other. He said there were four staff members in attendance. Board member Liz Chaplin said the entire board should be on the phone, that it would have been the responsible thing to do. “Leaders have to lead by example, and if we’re going out to meetings when we have the opportunity to tele-conference, what kind of example are we setting?” she said. Board member Mary Ozog said she has risk factors and her son works at Costco and encounters lots of people every day. “We could all be carriers as the Surgeon General said yesterday. And, let’s face it, we all know there’s not enough tests. We can’t rule it out and we can’t find out if we may have had this virus at this point. And, this virus kills,” she said. Ozog said it was her civic duty to attend the meeting by phone. She’s hoping the next meeting on April 14 is entirely by phone. “We should be staying home and working to flatten the curve we’ve all been told about and try not to spread this virus any further,” she said. She points out that doing a meeting entirely by phone is doable. She cites Monday night’s Glen Ellyn board of trustees meeting. “The village of Glen Ellyn where I live had last night, I believe three staff members and the village president. No board members were present and they conducted their meeting through teleconference.” Members of the public were not allowed at the DuPage County board meeting so as not to increase the potential spread of COVID-19. Residents had been invited to make online any comments they would like read into the record during the public participation portion of the meeting. The five other DuPage County board members who participated by phone Tuesday included, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Julie Renahan, Tim Elliott and Sadia Covert.)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Denver’s stay-at-home order: Panic buying forces reversal on liquor and marijuana stores (DIERSEN: What percent of those in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, and in your county “live for” booze, gambling, pot, and other vices?)
https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/03/24/coronavirus-denver-issues-stay-at-home-order-panic-buying-forces-reversal-on-liquor-and-marijuana-stores/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Denver has a population of about 2.8 million. The order closes nonessential businesses and public places in Denver. Residents are required to shelter in their homes, leaving only when they must. Grocery shopping and doctor visits are examples of exemptions to the order. At first, liquor stores and recreational marijuana shops didn’t make the list of essential businesses. However the city reversed its original decree within hours after would-be shoppers formed lines wrapping around the block for both types of establishments. Now liquor and marijuana stores can remain open with measures in place to ensure 6-foot spacing between individuals.)

WIGAN TODAY
— These are the conditions that put you at a high risk of catching coronavirus – Sarah Wilson (DIERSEN: What increases your risk of catching coronavirus? I am 71, I have not-in-control type 2 diabetes, and I am obese. Further, my spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out a) puts under a tremendous amount of stress and b) severly limits time that I might spend exercising.)
https://www.wigantoday.net/read-this/these-are-conditions-put-you-high-risk-catching-coronavirus-2456700
(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, evidence suggests that those with weakened immune systems, as with any virus, are more susceptible to becoming infected by coronavirus. This includes those undergoing cancer treatment, those who are being treated for autoimmune diseases like lupus, Multiple Sclerosis or inflammatory bowel diseases, those with HIV and those having an organ or bone-marrow transplant. What underlying conditions put people at the highest risk of severe infection? A report from the World Heath Organization which studied cases in China said that the underlying conditions which put people at the highest risk of severe disease are hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease (such as lung disease or asthma) and cancer. . .What other conditions or factors make severe infection more likely? Age is one of the biggest risk factors when it comes to severity of infection, with the highest mortality rates in patients over the age of 80. It has also been suggested that those who smoke or vape may be more susceptible to catching coronavirus and more likely to contract a severe infection. Those with eating disorders or any other condition which causes them to lose a large amount of weight may also be more susceptible to catching coronavirus given the condition can cause low-white blood cell counts which weakens the immune system.)

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— What the Coronavirus Means for Your Retirement Finances Here’s how the COVID-19 pandemic could change your retirement income and expenses. – Emily Brandon (DIERSEN: If you had a large Roth CD maturing on April 1, 2020, how would you invest it?) 
https://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/401ks/articles/what-the-coronavirus-means-for-your-retirement-finances
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF the coronavirus may fall especially hard on retirees who are living on a fixed income. Retirement accounts have lost value, and savings accounts are likely to generate even less interest than they did in the recent past. However, the Social Security and Medicare programs have recently been tweaked in an effort to support retirees. Here is how the coronavirus pandemic could financially impact retirees: Social Security offices are closed. Medicare will now pay for telehealth services. Retirement accounts have lost value. Savings accounts will pay lower interest rates. Recreation spending has dropped. The urge to panic is strong, but stay rational. . .Retirement Accounts Have Lost Value Watching your retirement account balance plummet is especially horrifying for those who are already retired. “Minimizing and/or delaying withdrawals from retirement accounts while we are in the midst of the crisis allows your accounts time to recover,” says Adrienne Ross, a certified financial planner for Clear Insight Financial Planning in Spokane, Washington. “It allows you to delay or avoid selling assets when they are down in value.” Think about ways to delay purchases and reduce spending to give your investments time to recover in value before you lock in the loss by selling your assets. If you have other options, consider tapping into a savings account or emergency fund rather than taking a withdrawal from a depleted retirement or investment account. “Hopefully you’ve got an emergency fund that allows you to keep the money invested,” says Marie Thomasson, a certified financial planner and owner of Modern Assets in Culver City, California. “If you need to withdraw money for required minimum distributions or living expenses, take out only the minimum necessary.” Savings Accounts Will Pay Lower Interest Rates The Federal Reserve’s interest rate cut is likely to lead to lower interest rates on savings accounts. However, you can still look for a savings account that has a better interest rate than you are earning on your current savings. “Online savings accounts are a fantastic alternative to the traditional savings account, and are still FDIC-insured,” Thomasson says. “They offer a much higher interest rate overall and I recommend them to all my clients.” If you won’t need your savings in the near future, you can also park your money in a certificate of deposit. “CDs are a good option if you are comfortable locking in that money for a certain amount of time,” Thomasson says. “Make sure you have enough cash or other income through Social Security or your pension that you won’t need to tap the CD early.”)

https://www.newsmax.com/claremlopez/marxist-communist-emanuel-alinsky/2020/03/22/id/959371/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “You never want to let a serious crisis go to waste,” was the war cry of Rahm Emanuel, another socialist progressive. This is an echo of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” which is about the collapse of society and seizure of power. Now, no serious American thinks that President Trump intends to unleash the liberty-crushing arrest, detention, social-credit, or surveillance measures wielded by China. But as we have been warned (by Thomas Jefferson?) “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” So, as Andrew McCarthy wrote recently, “It is not sustainable for government to combat the disease by ordering communal and commercial activity to cease, then trying to compensate increasingly destitute citizens by borrowing and printing money to throw at them.” If we must live under “shelter in place”measures for a time to defeat this virus, so be it. Those who lose jobs and businesses may welcome federal financial assistance. Cutting regulations to speed solutions to market is most always a good thing. But, as we confront this crisis, let us be mindful of just how much authority we are ceding to a centralized government authority. We are a free society. If we relinquish that in a moment of fear, we may not get it back. Progressivism, socialism, and communism await those who neglect that “eternal vigilance.”)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— FROM THE ARTICLE: Voter turnout overall, however, is expected to drop. And conventional wisdom says that generally favors party-backed candidates and those with strong field organizations, potentially giving Rep. Dan Lipinski and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx more of a leg-up. There’s a lot going on and your crystal ball and tea leaves are shrugging. But we can tell you five contests worth watching: . .Oberweis v. Rezin: Those are the two names to watch in this heated Republican primary that will decide who competes against freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in November. Jim Oberweis and Sue Rezin have been feuding in recent days, ever since Rezin has filed a federal election complaint accusing Oberweis of employing a scheme to circumvent campaign finance rules. Along with the unpredictability of the coronavirus, this race has five other candidates in the hunt. So anything can happen. – Shia Kapos)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: EARLY VOTING NUMBERS in Chicago and Cook County were up going into today’s election. Chicago saw early voting rise 22.5 percent from 2016, according to the Chicago Board of Elections, and most of the increase came Monday. Early voting this year totaled 171,709, compared with 140,148. On Monday alone, 25,781 voters cast ballots, compared to 9,821 on the day prior to Election Day 2016. In the surrounding suburbs, early voting rose 46 percent, from 114,021 in 2016 to 166,613 this year, according to the Cook County Clerk’s Office. The reason: Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and other elected officials pounded the drum for voters to get to the polls early to help decrease the potential for crowds during the coronavirus outbreak. – Shia Kapos

DAILY CALLER
— Tucker Carlson: Shutting Down Economy Poses ‘Its Own Kind Of Public Health Risk’ – SCOTT MOREFIELD (DIERSEN: To defeat Trump, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs do everything that they can to destroy America’s economy.)
https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/16/tucker-carlson-shutting-down-economy-health-risk/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News host Tucker Carlson struck a balanced approach between epidemiologists who would argue for shutting everything down to fight the coronavirus pandemic and those concerned that an economic recession and even depression could pose “its own kind of public health risk.” Acknowledging the “major threat to the country” that coronavirus poses, Carlson pointed out the fact that there is “no clear consensus on how the country should respond.” “That should not surprise you,” said the Fox News host on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “People of good faith are working toward a couple of different goals tonight which at times collide with one another.” While the “first obligation” is always public safety and should be accomplished if possible, Carlson pointed out that protecting the economy should also be considered. “At the same time though, we need to protect our economy, and it’s not just something that Wall Street cares about, to be totally clear,” he said. “Economic decline is dangerous for everyone, especially at the bottom of the economy. It’s a legitimate human concern. It’s not just financial, it’s about families.” The “two imperatives” can “often conflict,” the Fox News host contended. “So if you ask an epidemiologist what we ought to do next, the answer is simple: shut it down, close every public space until the virus passes.” “From a public health standpoint, that makes sense, but what would be the consequences of doing that?” he asked. “Millions and millions of people would lose their jobs, some of them for good. We would enter a severe recession with mass unemployment and it could get worse from there. It’s not a joke, that could happen. You would see an awful lot of people in poverty in middle America and that poses its own kind of public health risk. Poor countries are never healthy countries. If you want great health care, you’ve got to pay for it and you have to have money to do so.” Any proper response “requires balance” and is a “complex question” with “no obvious answers.” Later in the monologue, Carlson warned against printing cheap money and eventually entering a situation where the U.S. “becomes Zimbabwe.” “It’s missing the point anyway,” he said. “The real imperative is saving jobs. For government bureaucrats and administrators and corporate H.R. directors, a month out of the office constitutes a vacation, but for the classes below, it could be the beginning of a long spiral, a real one. Of waiters, bartenders, retail workers, huge parts of the service industry on which we are dependent could see their income dropped to zero and not come back.” Carlson called the “guaranteed basic income” proposed by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney a “well-meaning” idea but in actuality “decadent and foolish.” “Name a place that’s become happier and more prosperous under a scheme like that,” he said before lauding the German system that allows employers to place their workers on “reduced hours” with the government making up the difference.)

I should write a book about such rich people in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, in Wheaton’s West District, in my precinct, etc. I would focus on the aforesaid who focus on destroying me because I oppose patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/03/why_the_rich_favor_the_democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do the wealthy align with the Democrats? The answer may seem counter-intuitive, but it is really quite simple. It’s surely not ideals or high-minded principles. Nor is it ignorance. Rather, it boils down to raw self-interest. In his book, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties, Christopher Caldwell notes that rich Americans think themselves to be as vulnerable as blacks. They are a relatively small minority of the population. They fear being resented for their wealth and power and of having much of that taken from them. Accordingly, the wealthy seek to protect what is theirs by preventing strong majorities from forming by using the divide and conquer principle. As R.R. Reno writes when reviewing Caldwell’s book: “Therefore, the richest and most powerful people in America have strong incentives to support an anti-majoritarian political system.” He goes on: “Wealthy individuals shovel donations into elite institutions that incubate identity politics, which further fragments the nation and prevents the formation of majorities.” Some of the rotten fruit of the wealthy taking this approach include multiculturalism, massive immigration of diverse people, resistance to encouraging assimilation, racial strife, trying to turn white males into pariahs, and the promotion of gender confusion. Through it all, society is bombarded with the Orwellian mantra that “diversity is strength,” as if repeating it often enough can make it so. It is also why patriotism and a common American culture are so disparaged today. Those from the upper strata of society project the idea that if you’re a flag-waving American, you must be some kind of retrograde mouth-breathing yokel. The wealthy as a groups are content to dissolve the glue that holds the U.S. together. And it is all done to enhance and preserve their power, wealth, and influence. This is why they so hate Donald Trump. He strives to unite people and the country, although you’d never know that that is what the president is doing if you live in the media bubble. Trump’s MAGA agenda is an anathema to the managerial class.)
