CHAMPAIGN/URBANA NEWS GAZETTE
— Who are these ‘millionaires and billionaires’? – Jim Dey (DIERSEN: According to this, “1 out of every 18 households” is a millionaire household. What percent of the households in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, and in your county are millionaire households?)
https://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/columns/jim-dey-who-are-these-millionaires-and-billionaires/article_442f6047-e5dd-5134-b96d-003e30435570.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Forbes magazine reports that its annual review of the super-wealthy in the United States revealed Illinois has just 18 billionaires out of a population of 12.5 million. Rapp was struck by two things — the small number of billionaires and the frequency of their last names. Of the 18, six are Pritzkers. “I thought that was kind of funny,” Rapp said. The statistic stands as stark testimony to the wisdom of making a good choice when picking one’s parents. The Pritzker family is the 15th wealthiest family in the world, with a combined $33.5 billion net worth. Celebrity Net Worth reports that “A.N. Pritzker was the son of Ukrainian immigrants” who invested “in real estate and companies in trouble while he worked for his dad’s law firm.” Thus began a family financial dynasty that is tied to the Hyatt Hotel chain. Past holdings include “the Superior Bank of Chicago (which collapsed in 2001), Braniff airlines, McCall’s magazine, the Trans Union credit bureau, and Royal Caribbean cruise line.” Brilliant estate planning has protected the family wealth, allowing major fortunes to be handed out to successive generations of Pritzkers. Forbes magazine reported in 2019 that of the 18 Illinois billionaires, Thomas Pritzker ranks No. 3 ($4.1 billion net worth), the governor is at No. 4 ($3.2 billion), Jean Pritzker is at No. 5 ($3.1 billion net worth), Penny Pritzker, No. 6 (2.6 billion net worth), Nicholas Pritzker, No. 7 ($2 billion) and Jennifer Pritzker, No. 8 ($1.9 billion). . .But it’s a different story when it comes to millionaires, meaning people with a net worth of at least $1 million, not necessarily an annual income of at least $1 million. Crain’s Chicago Business reported in 2016 that “the number of millionaire households in Illinois reached 280,265, up 5.2 percent from 2014.” In 2016, Crains reported, that number represented “1 out of every 18 households” — 5.5 percent. Pritzker’s proposed progressive income tax, however, is about income, not net worth.)

— Experts testify about systemic racism in Illinois home loan, banking industries; Lawmakers look for answers from banking executives, community advocates, researchers – RAYMON TRONCOSO (DIERSEN: Those experts would blast the banks and savings and loan that lent me money to buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971 when I was 23 years old, a new town home in University Park in 1972, a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in downtown Chicago in 1974, and a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976.

SOUTHWEST NEWS HERALD
— GOP leader admits Madigan probe is political – Rich Miller (DIERSEN: Government is political. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat GAO superiors would not have forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, they would not have given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, they would not have always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, they would have promoted me beyond GS-13, they would not have gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, they would not have kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and they would not have forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat IRS superiors would have promoted me beyond GS-12, they would not have disallowed my education deductions in 1978, they would not have gotten rid of my mentor in 1975, and they would not have disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat Post Office superiors would not have forced me resign in 1969 and they would not have disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

INSIDE HIGHER EDUCATION
— Christian College Faculty Aren’t Lining Up for Trump Reflecting new polling that indicates college-educated white evangelicals are moving away from supporting Trump, many on Christian campuses are struggling to back him. – Kery Murakami (DIERSEN: The Democrat Party platform is extremely anti-Christian. If you vote for Democrats, you shout that you are anti-Christian.)
https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2020/10/16/christian-professors-try-reconcile-abortion-views-disdain-trump
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton College — a Christian college in Illinois, which is described as sort as the Harvard of evangelical colleges — appears to be a place where Barrett’s nomination should be causing many to embrace Trump. The university requires students and faculty each year to reaffirm a statement of faith, based on a biblical doctrine consonant with evangelical Christianity. Students and faculty are also expected to affirm that they agree with a community covenant, which, among other things, condemns “the taking of innocent life.” David Iglesias, an associate professor of politics and law at Wheaton and director of the college’s Center for Faith, Politics and Economics, was clearly struggling whether his faith would allow him to vote for Trump. “In my faith, everything is subservient to Scripture,” he said and brought up the biblical account of David’s adultery with Queen Bathsheba. “The prophet did not give him a pass,” he said. “The Scripture is pretty clear that when our leaders do the wrong thing, we shouldn’t excuse them. Character counts. What you do matters.” And, he said, “we know our Scripture here.” Just in the past few months, he said, Trump has “failed to criticize the Proud Boys. What did he say? ‘Stand by’?” “His behavior during the debate — he wouldn’t let Joe Biden speak. I’ve never seen a worse debate. It was pathetic. He’s said disparaging things about Muslim Americans,” Iglesias said. “And there’s his recent treatment of veterans,” he said referring to a report in The Atlantic in September that Trump privately referred to service members killed in combat as “suckers” and “losers.” (Trump denied insulting veterans.) Iglesias served in the U.S. Navy for 30 years. On Christian campuses, “there’s going to be some soul searching in supporting someone you disagree with on 90 percent of the issues,” he said. “But who agrees with you on the one you that you hold dear, and that’s right to life.”)

They did not promote me to GS-13 until I was 38 in 1986.

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Illinois means little to President Donald Trump by way of electoral votes, but the state still has some eager Republican donors. Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, the Trump campaign’s national finance chair, made a stop at Bull Valley Golf Club in Woodstock, Tuesday afternoon. The club is about 60 miles northwest of Chicago and has been a go-to spot for Republican fundraisers. Entry to this exclusive fundraiser was pricey, ranging from a $1,000 ticket for a single, no-frills ticket to $100,000 per couple for co-chair status (and lots of access), plus some price points in between. The event was hosted by Gary Rabine, owner of a Schaumburg-based paving and concrete company. Trump and Guilfoyle then headed to downtown Chicago for another schmoozy gathering with Trump Finance Chair and Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts and philanthropist and political fundraiser Eleni Bousis (she and her husband, grocery chain owner Jim Bousis, were big supporters of former Gov. Bruce Rauner). Others rubbing elbows with Trump Jr.: Illinois Republican Committeeman Richard Porter, former Blackhawks player Jeremy Roenick, and Eloise Gerson, president of the 42nd Ward Republican Organization. Adding it all up: The Trump surrogate swing through Illinois was pulled together in just a few days and raised about $450,000. – Shia Kapos

CPA PRACTICE ADVISOR
— Applications Being Accepted for Minority Accounting Internship Preparation Program (DIERSEN: Sadly, I did not major in accounting at UIC 1966-1968, NIU 1969-1970, or Loyola 1972-1976 because I thought I could not pass the CPA examination. But what I learned by working for IRS staring in 1971, by taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul starting in 1976, and by taking the Becker CPA review course starting in 1978 enabled me to pass the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. But my Democrat IRS superiors were furious that I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt because that frustrated their efforts to get rid of me.)
https://www.cpapracticeadvisor.com/accounting-audit/news/21158181/applications-being-accepted-for-minority-accounting-internship-preparation-program
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Participants will engage in various sessions with representatives from Abbott, Crowe LLP, Deloitte LLP, Ernst & Young LLP, Grant Thornton LLP, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, KPMG LLP, PwC LLP, Sikich LLP, and Wipfli LLP, who will also be interviewing for a variety of paid internship opportunities. Other program highlights include motivational keynotes, resume advice, interview coaching, team building exercises, LinkedIn profile development, and opportunities to network with mentors, program alumni, and other diverse students. Additionally, all scholars will receive a $500 scholarship to help with their educational expenses. “In just three days, this amazing program prepares participants to successfully make the crucial transition from student to young professional,” says Kari L. Natale, CAE, senior director of the CPA Endowment Fund of Illinois. “It’s incredibly rewarding to watch these students become more motivated, confident, and better prepared to succeed in the accounting and finance profession as each day passes. They’ll truly accomplish things they never realized were possible.”)

NEWSWEEK
— Justice Thomas Wants SCOTUS to Revisit Statute Granting Social Media Platforms Protection from Users’ Content – JASON LEMON (DIERSEN: When I include links in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and on www.gopillinois.com to articles that my critics/opponents do not like, instead of punishing the authors of those articles, my critics/opponents punish me. I should write a book about a) the aforesaid articles, b) my critics/opponents who did not like those articles, and c) what they did to punish me. I would focus on candidates on ballots in my precinct who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that my including links in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and on www.gopillinois.com to articles they did not like caused them to almost lose elections and/or to lose elections. Since 2004, GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails have included links to almost 381,500 articles.)
https://www.newsweek.com/justice-thomas-wants-scotus-revisit-statute-granting-social-media-platforms-protection-users-1538790
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Thomas, a staunch conservative, referred to Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, which says “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Social media companies—like Facebook and Twitter—rely on this statute to remain protected from lawsuits resulting from offensive or inappropriate content that may be published by users. “Paring back the sweeping immunity courts have read into §230 would not necessarily render defendants liable for online misconduct. It simply would give plaintiffs a chance to raise their claims in the first place. Plaintiffs still must prove the merits of their cases, and some claims will undoubtedly fail. Moreover, States and the Federal Government are free to update their liability laws to make them more appropriate for an Internet-driven society,” Thomas wrote.)

What is/was your parents’ home town and your grandparents’ hometown? Crete was my hometown. I lived there 1948-1972. Crete was my father’s hometown and his parents’ hometown. Grant Park was my mother’s hometown and her parent’s hometown. I should write a book about how my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used my parents, their parents, Crete, and Grant Park against me.

— Will German Americans again put Donald Trump over the top in the presidential election? – Martin LaMonica (DIERSEN: National origin discrimination is nasty. Religious discrimination is nasty. Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. I should write a book about those who have used the following against me the most: a) my being 100% German national origin, b) my being baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, and c) my living in Crete 1948-1972. I would focus on those who would not have taken adverse actions against me if I had shared their national origin and/or religion.)
https://theconversation.com/will-german-americans-again-put-donald-trump-over-the-top-in-the-presidential-election-146283

(FROM THE ARTICLE: German Americans paved Donald Trump’s road into the White House in 2016 through Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. This ethnic group barely receives attention in American media and politics. The Midwest, home to many German Americans, is a battleground for the 2020 presidential election. Will this inconspicuous group yet again cast the deciding votes in the upcoming election? The German American experience Forty-four million Americans claim German ancestry. They constitute a large white heritage group in the United States, and the largest by far in the Midwest. Between 1850 and 1890, Germans arrived in the millions to settle in the U.S. German American farmers and workers transformed the frontier wilderness into farmland and fueled the Midwestern region’s industrialization with manpower and entrepreneurial spirit. Politically, they were never a unified voting bloc. Many were freethinkers, fighting against slavery and for women’s suffrage. They founded newspapers and led labor movements. Others were leading Evangelicals, forming the Missouri Synod, one of the most conservative religious bodies of the country. For decades, political parties vied for the vote of this heterogeneous immigrant group. Things changed in the wake of two world wars. To avoid stigmatization, German Americans stopped speaking German, anglicized their German names and became outwardly more American than any other European immigrant group. As a result, most contemporary German Americans have lost an authentic connection to their cultural heritage. Unlike other ethnic groups, they do not collectively link their identity to political action. Yet, despite this low level of community organization and activism, German Americans show common voting patterns. ‘Ghost pain of the past’ Today’s German Americans are more conservative than their ancestors. Most counties of heavy German American heritage are rural and vote Republican. We conducted a post-election analysis of this group’s behavior in the 2016 election. After we looked at occupational distributions, we suggested in 2016 that the steady economic decline in agriculture and domestic manufacturing in the Midwest made German Americans receptive to populist messages with racist overtones, a view implied by other political scientists and sociologists. A new, empirical study suggests that German Americans’ support of Trump in 2016 was not a simple outcome of party affiliation and not primarily an articulation of racism. Rather, German Americans were enticed by Trump’s isolationist agenda, an ideological preference their communities had developed long before 2016. In fact, presidential candidates with policies of protectionism and anti-interventionism have consistently benefited from the German American vote. For example, in the 1992 race, third-party candidate Ross Perot opposed NAFTA and the first Gulf War. He shared many views on trade and foreign policy with Donald Trump and performed better among German Americans than among any other descendants of 19th-century immigrants. Interestingly, the tendency to support anti-interventionist presidential candidates even extended to Democrat Barack Obama. More successful than any Democrat in presidential elections in decades among German American voters, Obama put forth a prospective foreign policy agenda that contrasted sharply with that of John McCain, who stood for the continuation of George W. Bush’s unpopular wars in the Middle East. German American support for America’s first African American president reached close to 60% in many counties of America’s heartland, making it very unlikely that racism was the primary force behind the swing toward Trump in 2016 in these counties. Rather, this phenomenon shows a consistent attraction to isolationist candidates in these communities rooted in the first half of the 20th century. That’s when German Americans vehemently opposed U.S. military intervention in Europe while being forced to rapidly assimilate. But can past traumas influence voting behavior 80 years later? Research on the persistence of historical legacies such as the voting behavior in former slaveholding counties in the South shows that political attitudes indeed can be passed down over generations even while the experiential link to their origin is lost. It appears that German American attraction to isolationism is a ghost pain of the past. What will happen in November? Trump has been an isolationist president. He abolished NAFTA, withdrew from the Paris Agreement on climate change, pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, started trade wars, snubbed military leaders and announced troop withdrawals from NATO allies. These decisions will increase his popularity among many voters who favor isolationist candidates, including German Americans. Nevertheless, we believe that Trump’s campaign faces a problem in attracting a similarly large number of German Americans voters this November. Expectations that isolationist policies would lead to greater prosperity in the Midwest were disappointed. Moreover, throughout Trump’s presidency, his record as an isolationist was overshadowed by his image as a racist. We believe that many of those German American swing voters, who voted for a noninterventionist Obama in 2008 and then were attracted by Trump’s isolationist agenda in 2016, are alienated by his incendiary response to police killings and the Black Lives Matter protests. A central tenet of isolationism is a strong desire to stay out of trouble through noninvolvement. This applies all the more at home. A growing understanding that the president’s actions did not deescalate but instead amplified violence and chaos on American streets will likely keep many German Americans from voting for Trump a second time.)

— Big Tech Censorship is Finally Now Coming After the Rest of Us Conservatives – Rachel Alexander (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents side with Big Tech.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/rachelalexander/2020/10/12/big-tech-censorship-is-finally-now-coming-after-the-rest-of-us-conservatives-n2577864
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of us thought “that could never happen to me” when rowdy right-wingers like Laura Loomer and Gavin McInnes were banned from social media. We are careful and polite about what we post. Surely Big Tech sees how reasonable we are and would never come after us too. Not so anymore. Big Tech is now starting to label regular conservative viewpoints as false and using that as justification to censor and even permanently ban us. They are threatening to ban conservatives for posting things that left-leaning fact checkers say have a very remote possibility of not being true. . .Do you see where this is leading? If you say “capitalism leads to prosperity,” that could be “fact-checked” as false because you can always point to poor people. If you say “Christianity saves lives” that could be “fact-checked” as false because some Christians were martyred for their faith. . .Rep. Jim Jordan and other congressional conservatives issued a report this month on Big Tech censorship, focusing on Facebook, Google, Apple, Amazon and Twitter. The report stated, “Big Tech is out to get conservatives. Time and again, Big Tech uses its power to suppress and marginalize conservative voices.” Google was caught blacklisting some of the top conservative media sites in July, noticeably shortly before the election. Notice we’re no longer talking about Infowars and fringe sites. These are the top conservative sites in the country, including Townhall, Breitbart, The Daily Wire and Judicial Watch. . .Jordan and Rep. Matt Gaetz were shadow-banned by Twitter in 2018, but not a single member of the 78-person Progressive Caucus was shadow-banned. RNC chair Ronna McDaniel was shadow-banned, but not the DNC chair. The report lists many incidents of censorship of prominent, regular conservatives, including President Trump. On the other hand, conduct threatening violence on the extreme left is often given a free pass. Tweets by the Ayatollah Khamenei are allowed stating that Iran will reciprocate against the U.S. for the death of Hajj Qasem Soleimani and that Israel will be uprooted and destroyed. . .Many conservatives will still blow this off, saying it’s not censorship because private companies are involved, and we just need to come up with our own competing alternatives. This may be true, but it’s not solving the problem. No platforms fair to conservatives have come anywhere near the competitiveness of the top Big Tech companies. Parler, which President Trump recommended as a social media alternative, has only 2.8 million users. Whereas Facebook has over 2.7 billion users, Instagram has 1 billion and Twitter has 48.35 million. So conservatives are being increasingly shut out of the modern-day version of the public square. . .Something has to change. The left already controls so much of society — education, most of the legal system, traditional media, Hollywood — that the addition of Big Tech will ensure that conservatives never win another election again. It’s just not clear to many of us what is the best way to fight back.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Terry Hunt, 68, of Big Rock, is looking to continue in the position of county auditor, a job he has held since 2012. Looking at the county, Hunt says concerns include the pandemic and its impact, and concerns about taxes. “COVID has been front and center of everything and is on everyone’s list at this point,” Hunt said. “It impacts people’s lives on so many levels from personal health to the ability to buy food and work. It has overshadowed typical things like taxes.” Property taxes are still an issue, Hunt insists, “as everyone is aware of what they owe” as well as their obligation to pay. If re-elected, Hunt said he wants to continue to “increase financial transparency” as well as “audit each operation in an objective and fair way.” “The auditor’s function is that he’s the only elected official authorized to audit each county operation and it’s a responsibility to the people that elected us as opposed to someone that’s appointed,” he said. Hunt also wants to continue to work with the other team members “to balance the budget” and said he will continue to work on ad hoc committees and other tasks “that go beyond the office” and above “the lowest threshold” of just doing the auditor’s job.)

My being draft bait hindered my job searches during 1970 and early 1971. 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. That directly resulted in a) Firestone Stores firing me and b) my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

My Democrat IRS superiors would have promoted me beyond GS-12, would not have disallowed my education deductions in 1978, would not have gotten rid of my mentor in 1975, and would not have disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974.
