DAILY SIGNAL
— The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken – Dennis Prager
https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/09/17/the-lefts-moral-compass-isnt-broken/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All of my life, I have said that the left’s moral compass is broken. And all of my life, I was wrong. Why I was wrong explains both the left and the moral crisis we are in better than almost any other explanation. I was wrong because in order to have a broken moral compass, you need to have a moral compass to begin with. But the left doesn’t have one. This is not meant as an attack. It is a description of reality. The left regularly acknowledges that it doesn’t think in terms of good and evil. Most of us are so used to thinking in those terms—what we call “Judeo-Christian”—that it is very difficult for us to divide the world in any other way.)

USA TODAY
— Amy Coney Barrett: Talented judge, popular professor brings solid conservative credentials – Richard Wolf and Maureen Groppe (DIERSEN: How would Barrett have ruled in Diersen v. GAO? In Diersen v. GAO, the 7th Circuit ruled that employers can discriminate against their employees because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2020/09/26/who-amy-coney-barrett-talented-judge-conservative-credentials/3494471001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During her three years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit, which includes Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, Barrett has ruled in cases involving abortion, sexual assault, guns, race and immigration. Among them: . . Race: Barrett helped to block the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s effort to stop an employer from transferring Chicago-area employees based on their race or ethnicity. The agency had accused AutoZone of making the transfers to reflect area demographics. Three dissenting judges said the policy “deprived people … of employment opportunities at their preferred geographic location.” Age discrimination: Barrett ruled that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act does not apply when policies impact plaintiffs unintentionally. The ruling went against a 58-year-old job applicant who lost out to someone half his age when the company sought to hire a person with less than seven years’ experience.)

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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.

To meet AA, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets, my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted many millions of tax dollars. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, 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. 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. My aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

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.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Maine East High School officials defend inclusivity banners after local Republican leader, citizens object to content – JENNIFER JOHNSON

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shortly after the newest banner appeared at Maine East, Maine Township Republican Committeewoman Char Foss-Eggemann, of Park Ridge, posted a message on the Republicans of Maine Township Facebook page, writing that it is “a breach of the public trust to use taxpayer-funded government property to post political messages.” She encouraged followers of the pages to email District 207 Supt. Ken Wallace to inquire about the banner, which she referred to as a “BLM banner,” the abbreviation standing for “Black lives matter.” The message was also shared by the Republican Women of Park Ridge Facebook page, an organization of which Foss-Eggemann is also a leader. In an email to Pioneer Press, Foss-Eggemann said the Maine East banners contain “political messaging” and the name of “a specific political organization,” Black Lives Matter. “There should be zero debate on this because it is self-evident,” Foss-Eggemann said. “Political messages do not belong on any government building, period.” In an email to Wallace, which Foss-Eggemann also shared, she suggested the district could achieve “an environment of equality, inclusion and kindness” by using “apolitical banners which avoid politically-charged slogans or words routinely and/or commercially associated with various political group(s).”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On a call with reporters hosted by the Biden campaign Friday, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth lambasted Trump for “belittling the sacrifices of those who have shown more bravery than he’s capable of.” Duckworth, a retired Army National Guard lieutenant colonel who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, has been a prominent critic of Trump’s handling of military issues. Knocking Trump for allegedly inventing an injury to avoid serving in the Vietnam War, Duckworth said that she’d “take my wheelchair and my titanium legs over Donald Trump’s supposed bone spurs any day.” Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who drew national attention after criticizing Trump during the 2016 Democratic National Convention, joined Duckworth on the call and said that Trump’s “life is a testament to selfishness.”)
