Employers, including GAO, IRS, Firestone Stores, and Post Office, have always known that their hiring me, their retaining me, and their promoting me would not help them meet their Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, or Inclusion quotas, goals, or targets. Organizations, including the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce (WCC), Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC), and American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) Midwest Chapter (MC), have always known that their giving me leadership positions would not help them meet their AA, Diversity, or Inclusion quotas, goals, or targets.

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Shia Kapos jabs Esther Joy King. I have lived in Illinois since 1948 and in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton since 1978. My website is at www.gopillinois.com .)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: She doesn’t really mention living in Texas and Chicago before moving to the district, which lines the state’s northwest border with Iowa, a point Bustos seizes on in her latest ad: “Who is the real Esther Joy King? She just moved from Chicago to run for Congress.” Before running for office, King headed a social media marketing company called 364.Social, a company we couldn’t find online. King says that’s because it was folded into another marketing firm that she helped start: GRP21, which also has next-to-no presence online. A few years ago, King also billed herself as founder of Flashbulb Media — another company that appears to be non-existent. King doesn’t mention those companies on her LinkedIn page — she said she just chose not to — and didn’t supply any information about them. She told Playbook she “no longer has any ownership interest” in Flashbulb or GRP21.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: NEWS FAKERY EXCLUSIVE: As local news dies, a pay-for-play network rises in its place — and its roots are in Illinois: The New York Times exposes Chicago-area businessman Brian Timpone’s media empire running websites across the country and in Illinois, including the “North Cook News,” which appear as news sites. In fact, the Times says Republican operatives pay Timpone’s company to order up stories they dictate to reporters. Jeanne Ives has paid Timpone $55,000 and received favorable stories in return, according to the Times. When asked if she had paid companies for pay-for-play news stories, she said: “Oh, no, there’s none of that going on. I assure you. Oh, my gosh, no. Oh, no, not at all.” Also linked to Timpone’s companies: conservative talk show host Dan Proft and John Tillman, an activist who once led the Illinois Opportunity Project and who is connected to groups that have paid “hundreds of thousands of dollars” to underwrite Timpone’s “news” operation. … How it works: “Editors for Mr. Timpone’s network assign work to freelancers dotted around the United States and abroad, often paying $3 to $36 per job. The assignments typically come with precise instructions on whom to interview and what to write, according to the internal correspondence. In some cases, those instructions are written by the network’s clients, who are sometimes the subjects of the articles.”)

NEW YORK TIMES
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: As Local News Dies, a Pay-for-Play Network Rises in Its Place A nationwide operation of 1,300 local sites publishes coverage that is ordered up by Republican groups and corporate P.R. firms. – Davey Alba and Jack Nicas (DIERSEN: He who pays the piper calls the tunes. No one pays me. No one calls my tunes. However, my critics/opponents can and do punish me. They do everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. They ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship, my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership, my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service (twice), my Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee membership, and my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/18/technology/timpone-local-news-metric-media.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jeanne Ives, a Republican candidate for the U.S. House in Illinois, has had a direct financial relationship with the operation. Ms. Ives has paid Mr. Timpone’s companies $55,000 over the past three years, according to state and federal records. During that time, the Illinois sites have published overwhelmingly positive coverage of her, including running some of her news releases verbatim. In an interview, she said her payments were to create her website and monitor her Wikipedia page. One $14,342 payment included the note “Advertising-newspaper.” Ms. Ives initially could not explain why. She later called back to say Mr. Timpone had bought Facebook ads for her. Asked if she was paying for positive coverage, she replied: “Oh, no, there’s none of that going on. I assure you. Oh, my gosh, no. Oh, no, not at all.” Ms. Ives is listed as a “story watcher.” She said she did not know why.)

I should write a book about them. Better yet, I should sue them. I would focus on those in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County who have had little or no interaction with Blacks. While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, many of my coworkers and subordinates were Black. I worked in Chicago Heights 1964-1966 and 1970-1972, in Park Forest 1966-1969, in Harvey 1972-1973, at 63rd and Halsted in Chicago in 1973, and in Joliet 1973-1974. I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972, lived in it full-time 1972-1974, lived in it part-time 1974-1976 and rented it out 1976-1984.)

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.)

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.”)
