— 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.)

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.)

In my defense, I have put together and sent out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails free of charge and without any advertising since 2000. GOPUSA ILLINOIS email subscriptions are worth at least $1,000/year. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails have gone out each and every a) morning since 2004 and b) evening since 2015. That is 7,595 emails. Those emails contained links to 385,927 articles and information about many upcoming events. It takes about an hour for every 10 articles, so I have spent about 386,000 hours doing this since 2004. My time is worth $100 an hour. 386,000 X $100 is $3,800,000. All the time and all the money needed to put together and send out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails comes from me. But according to my critics/opponents, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are worthless if not destructive.)

— IRS Says Its Own Error Sent $1,200 Stimulus Checks To Non-Americans Overseas – SACHA PFEIFFER (DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS. GAO wasted my knowledge of IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently, $85,084-$96,431/year. If I had been a Democrat, a minority, and/or a female, GAO would have assigned me to audits of IRS. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981.)

— Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s skewering of President Donald Trump on Twitter may get him uninvited to holiday parties, according to POLITICO’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer. “There has been discussion in the White House of excluding the following Hill Republicans from the W.H. Christmas party this year: Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Mitt Romney (Utah), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Ben Sasse (Neb.) and Reps. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Liz Cheney (Wyo.). We’re told this has been reversed — that they may get an invite — but this has dominated West Wing chatter in the last few days.” – Shia Kapos

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON
— 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.)

https://fortune.com/2020/11/30/covid-impact-on-higher-education-ceo-daily/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But I was taken by his chapter on higher education. The virus, he points out, “has been especially hard on industries whose customers consume the product sitting shoulder to shoulder, like sports, airlines, restaurants, events—and…universities.” In the case of higher ed, it is hitting a sector already overripe for disruption. 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. A pandemic that shuts down campuses could—and probably should—create a perfect storm.)

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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millennials are said to despise the fossil-fuel powered car, embrace public transport, worry about climate change above all else and are firmly behind environmentalists’ plans to bring forward the day when the sale of the traditional automobile is banned. But that was before the coronavirus struck. According to a survey across 9 nations undertaken by global consultancy EV, millennials (aged between 24 and 39) are reversing all these assumptions because the coronavirus has made public transport an unattractive prospect, with its requirement for facemasks and the inevitable close proximity to the unknown. The individual, sealed automobile is now a coveted object of desire for getting to work and play. So far so shocking for the conventional wisdom. The headline finding of the report was that nearly 1/3 of people without a car intend to buy one in the next six months, and 45% of those will be millennials. There will be a global boom in car buying in the next six months, not least because of pent-up demand.)

https://www.qualitymag.com/blogs/21-jim-s-gems/post/96283-self-accountability
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It has been argued that in recent years personal accountability seems to be diminishing. Let’s explore that for a bit but just what is personal accountability?. . .Except possibly in the case of a genuine and serious mental illness, each of us is responsible for our own actions, no matter what the circumstances. Personal accountability means that we choose to take responsibility for our words, actions, and behaviors, and the outcomes they produce. It does no one any good to blame a television show, a movie, the media, the so-called “system,” or society in general for individual acts of violence or immorality. Personal accountability is the cornerstone of a healthy society just as it is an essential part of a healthy individual. Accountability literally means “account-ability,” that is, owning the ability to account for our own life. To be self-accountable means to be answerable for the obligations and duties we have in our life by the very nature of being a human being. People who are self-accountable answers fundamentally to him- or herself in honoring a code of living, ethics, and integrity that goes to the depth of who we really are. To paraphrase August Wilson, the playwright, ‘we are responsible for the world we live in. It is not the government’s responsibility. It is not our schools or our fellow citizens. It is ours, utterly and singularly ours.’ At the end of the day, we alone are self-accountable.)

— Electric Vehicles Will Drive Us to Serf City – Peter Skurkiss
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/11/electric_vehicles_will_drive_us_to_serf_city.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yes, EVs rely on fossil fuel to generate the electricity used to manufacture them and to charge their batteries. Hence they are not the ‘green’ vehicles that the enviros tout. In fact, EVs are net polluters when you consider the tremendous environmental damage that is done to mine the lithium and rare earth elements needed in their manufacture and transport. And recycling and/or disposal of Li-batteries is another problem waiting a solution. Furthermore a study from the Union of Concerned Scientists found that the assembly of a midsize EV would produce about 15 percent more emissions than the process of building a similar-sized gasoline powered vehicle. None of that matters. The big money, media, and government are solidly behind electric vehicles. As Bob Dylan sang, “You don’t need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” This is rather amazing considering America didn’t vote for EVs nor did the car market demand them. If the projections persist, EVs will be the norm due to manipulations by global elite and their allies in big business and government. Eric Peters, an automotive expert, has several interesting takes on the EV craze. He never believed EVs were about ‘clean’ transportation. Their goal was always controlled transport. This is why environmental concerns, although used as the pretext for EV mandates, don’t matter.)

— Trump moves to strip job protections from White House budget analysts as he races to transform civil service – Lisa Rein (DIERSEN: One reason why I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old was GAO’s claim that it was “nonpartisan.” I soon learned that claim was false. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat GAO superiors would not have a) forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer, b) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, c) gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, d) given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, e) failed/refused to promote me beyond GS-13, f) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and g) forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The outgoing Trump administration is racing to enact the biggest change to the federal civil service in generations, reclassifying career employees at key agencies to strip their job protections and leave them open to being fired before Joe Biden takes office. The move to pull off an executive order the president issued less than two weeks before Election Day — affecting tens of thousands of people in policy roles — is accelerating at the agency closest to the White House, the Office of Management and Budget. The budget office sent a list this week of roles identified by its politically appointed leaders to the federal personnel agency for final sign-off. The list comprises 88 percent of its workforce — 425 analysts and other experts who would shift into a new job classification called Schedule F.)

My being draft bait hindered my job searches during 1970 and early 1971. Firestone Stores hired me in 1970, but the job did not give me an opportunity to use what I had learned earning a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU. My not being a minority, female, or veteran always hindered my job searches with employers that were under pressure to hire minorities, females, and/or veterans. In 1971, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted saying that Oldsmobile had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mizelle is only eight years out of law school (University of Florida), and the ABA’s standard for a lifetime seat is 12 years of legal experience. She has had four distinguished clerkships, including one for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, but her only trial experience is as an intern before she graduated from law school. She will take her seat on the Eleventh Circuit for the Middle District of Florida having never tried a case—civil or criminal—as a lead attorney or co-counsel. “In her own words, her work history is that of a junior lawyer and is decidedly not meaningful preparation for managing a trial courtroom or the awesome power of determining the rights, liberty, or in some cases, life of litigants as a judge,” says Dan Goldberg with Alliance for Justice, a liberal advocacy group. “The people who should be the angriest are the people who will go to her courtroom.” In rating her “not qualified,” the ABA in its letter to the Senate Judiciary committee noted Mizelle’s “very keen intellect, a strong work ethic and an impressive resume. She presents as a delightful person and she has many friends who support her nomination. Her integrity and demeanor are not in question. These attributes however simply do not compensate for the short time she has actually practiced law and her lack of meaningful trial experience.” . . . Mizelle joins that exclusive club because she is a well-connected Washington lawyer with conservative cred who travels in the right circles. At Jones Day, President Trump’s favorite law firm, where she has been an associate since last year, Mizelle’s profile page highlighted her successful representation of the Chamber of Commerce in fending off a demand from the AFL-CIO for greater worker protections during the COVID crisis. She is married to Chad Mizelle, who faced similar questions about his youth and inexperience last year when his friend and ally at the White House, Stephen Miller, smoothed the way for him to become the acting general counsel at the Department of Homeland Security, leading DHS’ legal office of 2,500 attorneys just six years after graduating from law school. Apart from her skimpy experience, concerns about Kathryn Mizelle’s ideology are at the core of Democratic opposition, and they originate with her tenure at the Justice Department in 2017 and 2018 supervising litigation handled by the Civil Rights Division. It was a time when many voting rights and LGBT protections were being rolled back. “This nominee has been put forward not only because she is an ultraconservative ideologue, but also because she is a Trump loyalist, having worked in the Trump Justice Department to dismantle many critical civil rights protections,” the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights wrote to senators in September, urging them to reject her nomination.)

HINSDALE PATCH
— Feds Sue Hinsdale Over Fair Housing Village’s effort to close sober living house violates Fair House Act, feds say. – David Giuliani (DIERSEN: Questions to ask City Council candidates: If elected, would you encourage or discourage the following: putting addiction centers in residential neighborhoods, reparations, BLM, LGBTQ, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun controls, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination?)
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.

— The Importance of Local Elections – Matthew Gross (DIERSEN: Each and every candidate for government and political offices should be asked “If elected, would you encourage or discourage the following: reparations, BLM, LGBTQ, dependency on government, dependency on charity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun controls, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination?”)

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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Grogan says he’s undecided as to whether he’ll seek a recount of the ballots cast in the Nov. 3 election. He must wait until after the numbers are certified Tuesday, Nov. 24, before he can make the request. According to the most recent count, Downers Grove Democrat White had 233,121 votes, or 50.01% of the vote, to Grogan’s 233,046. Grogan, a Republican, is seeking his fourth term. County election judges processed and tabulated an additional 3,292 mail and provisional ballots Tuesday, DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said in a news release. DuPage County voter turnout was at 75%, with more than 491,000 votes tabulated — 118,000-plus cast on Election Day, 190,000-plus cast at early voting places and nearly 180,000 sent in by mail, she said. Grogan said Thursday he is considering a possible discovery recount, which would look at up to 25% of precincts to determine if there are any irregularities. “I haven’t finalized it yet but honestly, anything dealing with big numbers — whether it’s processing checks here (at the auditor’s office) or counting votes — there’s always an error rate,” he said. . .Gains made by Democrats in DuPage reflect a “political transition” in the historically Republican county, possibly the result of changing demographics or this year a Trump backlash, White said. “(The county auditor race) is not an outlier. It’s part of a pattern that was repeated throughout DuPage County,” he said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of Americans who are working full-time jobs still rely on federal health care and food assistance programs because of low wages, a bipartisan congressional watchdog says. A report from the Government Accountability Office found that about 70% of adult workers participating in Medicaid, which provides health care to low-income Americans, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, are working full time. The report was requested by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who said its findings show an urgent need to raise the federal minimum wage. “At a time when huge corporations like Walmart and McDonald’s are making billions in profits and giving their CEOs tens of millions of dollars a year, they’re relying on corporate welfare from the federal government by paying their workers starvation wages.,” Sanders said in a statement. “This is morally obscene.” He said it was long past time to increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15.)

— OCTOBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Experience an issue in DuPage County auditor race – Scott C. Morgan (DIERSEN: The Daily Herald endorsed Grogan.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201030/experience-an-issue-in-dupage-county-auditor-race
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Grogan, who has been the county auditor for 12 years, touts both his earlier career as a licensed CPA and his office’s record of innovation. Grogan was the first Illinois auditor to implement an online county checkbook, which allows the public to search and view expenditures. Grogan also emphasizes his creation of an audit hotline, which allows taxpayers to submit reports of fraud, waste or misuse of county resources. “I think that the people of DuPage County will recognize the good work that I started off doing when I first came into office and that I’m continuing to do,” Grogan said during a recent endorsement interview. “I think I’ve operated in this position with integrity and with a very high level of skills and output. “White, meanwhile, says he believes DuPage is at a “political crossroads” and might be aligning more with the Democrats. He hopes to be a part of any potential change. “It’s very well established in the private sector that rotating auditors is simply the sensible thing to do,” White said. “Bringing in a fresh pair of eyes is just inherently good.” White is an attorney who has served on the Downers Grove Village Council and the Community High School District 99 school board. White has also served on the zoning board of appeals in Downers Grove and Woodridge. “I have a track record of getting the Democrats and Republicans to work together,” said White about his time in local government. “My goal as auditor will be to facilitate good government, which I define as transparent.”)
— SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Endorsement: Bob Grogan for DuPage County auditor (DIERSEN: By far, Grogan is the best qualified for the job. Like me, he passed the CPA examination on his first attempt, but his scores on each of the four parts of the examination were much higher than mine. Like me, he is a Certified Fraud Examiner, but he passed the examination on his first attempt while I “grandfathered” in. Grogan is a licensed CPA; I became a licensed CPA in 1981. White is not a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, or Forensic Accountant, but I am. White does not have auditing experience. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20200930/endorsement-bob-grogan-for-dupage-county-auditor
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: During his three terms as Du­Page County auditor, Bob Grogan has regularly looked to innovate. The Downers Grove Republican was the first auditor in Illinois to put a county checkbook online. He also was the first to create a transparency portal and an audit hotline. . .While White is well-versed in the duties of the office, we can’t ignore Grogan’s record and credentials. As a licensed CPA and certified fraud examiner, Grogan has the skill and experience to find waste and fraud in county government. Findings made by the auditor’s office during Grogan’s tenure have resulted in savings, firings and, most recently, federal charges against the Bloomingdale Township highway commissioner. Grogan is endorsed.)
