DAILY HERALD
— It’s now even easier to fire U.S. workers for what they say – Josh Eidelson and Hassan Kanu (DIERSEN: Have you been fired? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors fired me, that is, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” They fired me because I had become an active member of a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. They fired me because I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about those who claim to be conservative and/or Republican, but who side with my Democrat GAO superiors. I would focus on past U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. I would focus on present and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. All of the aforesaid talk and/or act like they reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. All of the aforesaid pander to minorities and pander to women, and especially to minorities and to women who are younger.)

PEORIA JOURNAL STAR
— Equity in Illinois higher education: ‘We are failing our African American students.’ – Raymon Troncoso (DIERSEN: What limited your educational achievements? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. While I attended high school, I did yard work, delivered newspapers, and washed dishes. The summer after high school, I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline. While I earned my bachelor’s degree, I delivered mail and worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard. While I earned my master’s degrees, I pumped gasoline, collected delinquent taxes, and audited federal agencies.)

FOX NEWS
— Illinois district includes students of color in groups with first chance at in-person learning. ‘There was a pandemic before this,’ superintendent says. ‘That was inequity and racism’ – Sam Dorman (DIERSEN: To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to those who are minority, female, LGBTQ, younger, not married, product of a non-traditional family, non-Christian, non-Italian American, non-German American, non-veteran, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, moderate, liberal, in America illegally, those who have less money than others, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time IS TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE White, male, heterosexual, older, married, product of a traditional family, Christian, Italian America, German American, veteran, Republican, conservative, citizen of America, those who have more money than others, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.foxnews.com/us/illinois-schools-black-brown-students-in-person-learning
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Because District 65, which includes students from Evanston and Skokie, won’t force teachers to work on-site, school buildings may not be able to accommodate all students who would like to come back to their classrooms. In that event, Superintendent Devon Horton reportedly said, the district would give priority to “Black and Brown students,” and others it considered to be “marginalized” or “oppressed.” “This decision aligns directly to the guidance released by the Illinois State Board of Education on June 23 in using an equity lens to implement and transition into blended learning. This was also a top idea recommended by our Community-based Task Force,” school district spokeswoman Melissa Messinger told Fox News. “As a community deeply committed to educational equity, we will continue to root our decisionmaking on how to best serve our most vulnerable student populations.”)

— Human Resources and Cancel Culture – Lawrence M. Ludlow (DIERSEN: Democrats and RINOs use Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are Trump supporters, conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, non-poor, draft avoiders, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/08/human_resources_and_cancel_culture.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Current human resource (HR) policies deliberately misuse terms such as diversity and equity to achieve political ends. That isn’t news. But the process by which those terms were twisted into their current shapes is worth a look. Likewise, it is important to see how their current usage is grounded in economic ignorance and unsound ethics. Sadly, the resultant HR policies — including microaggression training and gender-and-race training — feed a growth industry of diversity hucksters. These quick-buck artists subvert productive corporate meritocracies and replace them with systems that enshrine mediocrity, manufacture complaints, and generate resentment – not to mention whining and pearl clutching. Even worse, the dismal results of these programs only seem to validate those who started them! The dysfunctional corporate cultures they create give politically motivated HR staff an opportunity to “referee” disputes among their newly infantilized employees. Meanwhile, adults who just want to do their jobs well, get paid, and go home are marginalized or driven off – as in the case of Google engineer James Damore; scores of editors, journalists, and columnists; and university professors in the U.S. and Canada.)

Grynbaum (DIERSEN: Outstandingly, you are reading this email notwithstanding the tremendous efforts by my critics/opponents since 2000 to viciously destroy anyone who reads GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. Better yet, I should sue them. Do onto others what you want done to yourself.

In 1971, I told my mother that my Firestone Stores boss had fired me because I had told him that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. In 1980, I told my mother and my wife that the Democrats who ran GAO had forced me to accept a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. In 1997, I told my mother and my wife that my Democrat GAO superiors had succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” In 2012, I told my mother and my wife that my critics/opponents had ended my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship. In 2011, I told my mother and my wife that my critics/opponents had ended my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership. In 2010 and 2004, I told my mother and my wife that my critics/opponents had ended my Milton Township Republican Organization webmaster service.

— A lesson in contrasts: How the GOP purged its leader amid corruption allegations – Editorial
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-corruption-madigan-comed-lee-daniels-20200807-3q6u23z34ncvrii6mlctw2ydwy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In June 2002, then-Illinois Republican Party Chairman Lee Daniels abruptly announced his resignation from that party post as pressure mounted, including from the GOP state attorney general, to remove unwanted “distractions” in an election year. Daniels and his chief of staff had fallen under the radar of federal prosecutors who were investigating whether GOP staff members did campaign work on state time. “The party deserves to serve its purpose without unwarranted distractions,” Daniels, who as House minority leader was House Speaker Michael Madigan’s counterpart, said in announcing he would step down as party chair. “For that reason, it is best that I refocus my energy and encourage others to refocus theirs.” Not long after, the House Republican caucus voted 33-18 to install a new House leader, Rep. Tom Cross, after Daniels lost support among his colleagues in that role too. Daniels had not been charged and was only peripherally linked to a time sheet scandal, but the whiff of a federal corruption probe pushed his members to force him out of leadership. Three years later, Daniels’ chief of staff, Michael Tristano, formally was indicted and later pleaded guilty to a fraud charge as part of a probe into state workers’ diverting taxpayer resources to campaigns. Tristano also was accused of working out a deal with a real estate group to put a Republican candidate on its payroll. In exchange, the real estate group’s project received more than $1 million in state funds, prosecutors said. Other statehouse insiders, including Madigan, then-Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka and Senate President Emil Jones, also had been asked to turn over records as part of a state-resources-to-campaigns scandal. Shortly after Tristano’s indictment in 2005, Daniels announced he would retire from his remaining position as a state representative. Daniels was not implicated in Tristano’s indictment, and he was never charged with wrongdoing. But he left anyway. A top GOP party and policy leader in the state who once held three positions of power was gone, pushed out by his own members and a nudge from the previous GOP attorney general, Jim Ryan, who had forwarded corruption allegations to federal investigators. Under the lens of compare and contrast, then and now, one takeaway is this state’s breathtaking tolerance for corruption. It has settled into the system of governance and politics as its own permanent institution. Corruption is an expected byproduct of serving in public office, like wind makes waves.)

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE
— Two committee chairmen sent Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen a letter ordering him to back off from trying to direct day-to-day operations of county departments or department heads. – BRENDA SCHORY
https://www.kcchronicle.com/2020/08/06/county-board-members-tell-lauzen-to-back-off-from-supervising-county-employees/atc6fn5/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘I don’t work for them’ Lauzen said he works six days a week while county board members come in six to eight times per month – so how could they possibly know what is happening day-to-day in the county? “Being County Board Chairman is so much more than cutting ribbons and running meetings,” Lauzen said. “I have weekly manager meetings with all department directors to help those managers – not only to help them in their areas, but also to share information in what is happening and how we can work together.” Lauzen criticized the letter as harsh. “They are going about this in a crude way,” Lauzen said, of Hoscheit and Martin. “I don’t work for them. I work for 532,000 people (of Kane County) and they expect proper behavior.” Lauzen recounted his expertise, being a Harvard MBA, an Illinois CPA, who spent 20 years in the Illinois Senate and who built a multi-million accounting practice in five years. “What you need is somebody like that to produce results to give board members these easy votes,” Lauzen said. “They want to diminish that.”)

They paint themselves as being operatives or as being dupes a) for those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and/or Illinois; b) for those who were candidates on ballots in my precinct; and/or c) for those who I have sued.)
https://newschannel20.com/news/local/new-ordinance-aims-to-add-respect-in-city-council
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The amended rules allow for the council to punish a fellow alderman with a verbal reprimand or a censure if they deem it necessary. A censure is basically a formal time-out. “Well obviously, Alderman McMenamin made some comments that were taken offensive and he apologized for that, but that is probably what warranted this ordinance to come forth,” Ward 1 Alderman Chuck Redpath said. Redpath thinks this ordinance is worded in a way that will help the council discussions and does not impact free speech or feed the cancel culture. “I think the message is clear that we need to treat the council meetings in a professional integrity manner and I think that you will see that in the future,” Redpath said.)

LEXOLOGY
— Journalism and copyright: what is protected by copyright law in Greece? (DIERSEN: What do you say to my critics/opponents who viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails as lacking “original work?” I should write a book about my critics/opponents. They do everything that they can to make work done by others look like it was done by them. They should do what I do, namely, a) highlight the sources of articles, b) highlight the titles of articles, c) highlight the authors of articles, and d) provide the unhidden hyperlinks of articles. It is called full attribution.)
https://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=ee0b6ef6-8200-4e98-98ad-f242789959ad

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Greek jurisprudence and legal theory set out that a work is ‘original’ if it has an element of ‘personal intellectual creation’ and reflects the author’s personality. More specifically, a work is an original expression of an individual’s mind when it contains an element of personal contribution and individuality. Another criterion applied by the Greek courts is statistical uniqueness, according to which a work is original when no other author could have created the same work under the same circumstances. According to Article 2(5) of the Copyright Law, copyright protection does not extend to news information or simple facts and data. As such, mere facts and information on current affairs fall outside the scope of protection if they are limited to the reporting of events and contain no element of personal contribution (eg, evaluation, criticism or interpretation). To constitute an original work of intellectual property and thus be protectable under the Copyright Law, a journalistic work must therefore contain an element of individuality and personal contribution, particularly with regard to the selection, composition, elaboration and adaptation of its content.)

— Wanted: Young People To Work The Polls This November – Barbara Sprunt (DIERSEN: What do you stress to those who question your age and health? I stress that nothing has stopped me from putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email a) each and every morning since 2004 and b) each and every evening too since 2015. Those emails have included links to more than 375,200 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
https://www.wbez.org/stories/wanted-young-people-to-work-the-polls-this-november/34b76fd0-0bff-4671-8131-6df2952b5f19
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most poll workers are over 60 Weiss’ group is just one effort to find new poll workers for the general election. In an unusual partnership, entities including Comedy Central, the Fair Elections Center, Patagonia, Uber and Levi Strauss & Co. are recruiting poll workers. “It really does speak to the level of concern that all of these folks who normally aren’t on the same side of things see the need to come together and solve this big problem,” says Scott Duncombe, who’s heading a new initiative called Power the Polls. Through digital marketing, Power the Polls aims to recruit 250,000 new poll workers on behalf of its partner organizations, most of which fall under Civic Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of businesses. Civic Alliance is encouraging its members to provide paid time off for employees who elect to staff poll locations. According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 58% of poll workers in the 2018 general election were over 60, an age that is linked to a higher risk for complications with COVID-19. A shortage of election workers plagued some early primary states, and election experts fear a massive shortage for the general election. “We’re talking about enormous numbers of poll workers who are not going to feel comfortable, and already have shown it in the primary, being in the polling places in the midst of a pandemic when they have concerns about their health,” says Bob Brandon, president of the Fair Elections Center. Brandon says even in normal times, convincing people to sign up to staff the polls can be challenging. It’s usually a 12-hour-plus day, with minimal pay and a fair amount of stress. Add in all the health concerns a pandemic brings, and it’s even harder to attract new workers. And although voting by mail is expected to increase dramatically this fall, Brandon says robust, in-person voting remains essential. “If you have a disability that requires you to be on an accessible machine to vote, you need to be there in person,” he says. “If you’re in a community that has terrible mail service, which many poor communities complain of, that’s an important need. Many people in the African American community have a distrust of anything different than taking a ballot and putting it into a machine, because of the history of voter suppression that they’ve encountered.” Brandon adds, “We can’t allow the lack of poll workers to mean there’ll be a lack of opportunities for people to vote in person, which will only lead to longer lines and other problems that ultimately mean fewer people vote.”)

— Joe Biden gets behind the wheel of a Corvette Stingray and lets it rip – BRIAN NIEMIETZ (DIERSEN: What demographics do you share with Biden? Both Biden and I are Corvette owners, former federal employees, White, male, older, married, college graduates, Christian, non-poor, non-drinkers, gun owners, draft avoiders, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time. Biden owns a 1967 Corvette that his father gave him as a wedding gift in 1966. My father died suddenly in 1969 when I was 21 years old. I own a 1972 Corvette that I bought in 1971 a) with an insurance settlement that I got for the theft in Chicago of my 1969 Dodge Charger SE and b) with money that I earned working full-time for IRS and part-time for Firestone Stores. I own a 2005 Corvette that I bought in 2005 with money that I got from selling my 1968 Dodge Charger R/T and my 1962 Chevy Impala SS. I had owned the Charger R/T since 1994 and the Impala SS since 1989.)

— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: Degree requirements are on the way out for federal jobs – Jessie Bur (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. In 1971, when I was 22 year old, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have hired me if I had not had earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (in management) in 1970. In 1972, 1973, and 1974, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have promoted me if I had not been taking job-related (business) graduate courses. In 1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me if I had not earned a job-related master’s degree (in business) in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and almost completed the requirements for my second job-related (in accounting) master’s degree. In 1986, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have promoted me if I had not completed the requirements for my a second job-related (accounting) master’s degree in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981. The Democrats who ran GAO would have succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” sooner than they did if I had not become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant in 1990 and if I had not completed the requirements for my third job-related (finance) master’s degree in 1997.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The resolution calls for several remedies. Among them, changing the second Monday in October from Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day; including Juneteenth on district calendars as a holiday; seeking out other groups represented in the community to ensure other important cultural holidays are noted on district calendars; developing curriculum and policies that are racially and culturally relevant; considering offering College African-American History as a general education course rather than an elective; examining art and imagery in district buildings and removing any that is deemed offensive; additional training for employees; aggressive recruitment of teachers and staff that reflect the racial makeup of the student body and community. Additionally, the board directed the superintendent to prepare an annual report on the academic achievement and discipline of minority students as a group, including educational outcomes, while protecting privacy rights, a report on successes inside and outside the classroom, and to track complaints of racial bias from employees, students and parents, including the resolutions. The discipline policies will be reviewed and updated with input from students and school resource officers and that will accompany the annual review of the contract with the school resource officers as the board considers their role.)

ELMHURST PATCH
— DuPage Officials Get Facts Wrong In Heated Debate Over Raises The sheriff cited attacks at Oak Brook mall, but there were none. A board member said she had heard of no looting, despite media reports. – David Giuliani
https://patch.com/illinois/elmhurst/dupage-officials-get-facts-wrong-heated-debate-over-raises
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During a heated June 9 finance committee meeting, DuPage County board member Ashley Selmon, D-Addison, accused Sheriff James Mendrick, a Republican, of “irresponsible rhetoric” about “looting and sledgehammers” that led Elmhurst and Addison to board up businesses amid a wave of Black Lives Matter protests across the county and around the country. Mendrick took exception, saying the sledgehammers and looting were facts, not rhetoric. “It’s an insult that you say that there were just peaceful demonstrations,” he told Selmon. “I am sorry, but they were not. We were being attacked at Oak Brook Mall. That’s just a fact. I was there. My staff was there. Don’t belittle what we just did for this county.” The exchange happened during a debate about “equity” raises — possibly as high as $25,000 — for sheriff’s department employees, and Patch found that neither Selmon nor Mendrick was entirely correct. According to police reports, there was no attack on officers or anybody else at Oak Brook Center mall on May 31 or in the days following, only minor property damage. According to Oak Brook police, a brick was thrown at a Neiman Marcus store window around 11 a.m. that day, causing a dozen punctures to the glass. A witness saw six men involved in the incident, but they sped away, according to police. In one case, police did report seeing a sledgehammer in plain view in a car’s back seat, according to a sheriff’s department after-action report. According to the report, officers tried to stop a number of cars at the mall that night, with some passengers mocking or swearing at officers and others fleeing from police. In an interview, sheriff’s department spokesman Justin Kmitch said when the sheriff mentioned “attacks,” he was referring to a number of instances in the days leading up to the committee meeting. “There were no physical assaults of officers at Oak Brook,” Kmitch said. “Protecting the mall was everyone’s priority out there.” He noted the sheriff set up a command center at the mall, which he called the “crown jewel of the DuPage County economy.” At the committee meeting, Selmon said she and other county board members had received regular reports of the protests around DuPage County from the county’s homeland security department. “Unless I’m illiterate, we did not get a single report of anything categorized as looting in this county,” she said. While she may not have received a report, it’s also inaccurate to say there were no cases of looting in the county. About a week before the meeting, more than 30 stores were looted and 11 people arrested in Naperville, according to police and media reports. The looting started around 9 p.m., following a peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstration that had been held earlier in the day, according to Naperville Police Chief Robert Marshall. The sheriff’s department report on the incident said “large explosive devices” were thrown at police officers, and at least one bystander was stabbed while trying to help police, according to Marshall. About the same time, stores in Downers Grove and Aurora were also looted, according to media reports. According to the sheriff’s after-action report, officers in a number of instances also found people with weapons near protests. In Roselle, for instance, a car stopped near a demonstration contained two rifles, six handguns, body armor and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, the report said. And in Elmhurst, police took into custody a man who was seen arriving at a June 1 protest with a rifle, bag, helmet and body armor, according to police. In an email, Selmon said that after the June 9 committee meeting, she and others were able to get more complete information both from the state’s attorney and the sheriff’s office. “As I said, the Homeland Security reports did not indicate those events, but the further information we received did elaborate and confirm a more complete picture, including some incidents of looting/theft/burglary, as was seen in other communities and nationally,” Selmon said. “Similarly, the events were, and thankfully continue to be, overwhelmingly peaceful.” The county board approved the raises for the sheriff’s department employees. Selmon and fellow Democrat Liz Chaplin, whose district includes Elmhurst, dissented.)

— Of Course, the GOP Thinks Fact-Checkers Are Biased Americans will never be able to settle policy differences if we can’t even acknowledge a baseline of truth. – Nancy LeTourneau (DIERSEN: QUESTION: What qualifications do I have to be a fact checker? ANSWER: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year, I increasingly worked as a referencer, that is, as a fact checker. 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.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Momence residents turn out to support city leaders – Chris Breach (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, BLM, that is, the Democrat Party, makes its demands on municipalities. How has your municipality responded? How is your municipality responding? How will your municipality respond?)
https://www.daily-journal.com/news/local/momence-residents-turn-out-to-support-city-leaders/article_de58c29c-d5fc-11ea-9d1b-abcbcf3f2cf3.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Protesters were out in full force Monday outside Momence City Hall before and during the evening’s city council meeting, but so were Momence residents. Approximately 40 residents showed their support for their community as a Black Lives Matter rally drew about 25 to 30 people who were chanting and holding signs. Momence resident Steve Gross said he was hoping to get inside the city council meeting to talk about this weekend’s upcoming community garage sales. The meeting space had reached capacity limits and members of the public were admitted in turns. “People need to be responsible and stuff, but I couldn’t even get in to address anything with all this,” Gross said. “Actually, I had somebody engage me and be aggressive toward me. … It’s super unfortunate.” The protesters were on the sidewalk just east of the City Hall entrance, while the town supporters remained on the west side of the entrance. There were a couple skirmishes. At 8 p.m. police squad cars from St. Anne, Grant Park, two from Manteno and one from Kankakee County Sheriff’s department arrived and parked on West Washington Street. Those officers joined four officers from the Momence Police department who were there for crowd control and to keep peace. “You’ve got some people who are being hotheads, and some people are reasonable,” Gross said. Mayor Chuck Steele was in attendance and presided over the council after missing the previous two meetings due to his wife’s illness. The protesters have voiced their displeasure of Steele regarding statements he made about a June 9 BLM march in Momence and his calling for Alderwoman Rebekah Cope-Evers’ resignation because she attended the event. The protesters were chanting “Black Lives Matter,” “Momma, I can’t breathe” and holding signs that read “No justice, No Peace,” and “Make Racism Wrong Again.” A couple of the residents who showed up in support of their community were holding signs that read “We Support Our Mayor & Police,” and others were carrying the American flag and “Back the Blue” signs. “We love our mayor,” one resident said. “I’m here to just support my town,” Momence resident Michael Quirk said. “I think just like everyone else, everyone is fed up with all the protests and stuff, and I think the mayor took offense when that happened. I think he took it to heart because he knows that this isn’t a racist town. There’s no bigotry or anything, and it just got spun out and everyone took their opportunity.” Several people spoke during the citizen forum portion of the meeting, including Julia McDonald, of Kankakee, who asked the mayor for a public apology. “We ask that you let go of your defensiveness and instead open your eyes and your ears,” she said in part. “Listen to people when they have something to say on these streets, whether you agree with them or not.” Normon Davis, a Black Momence resident, spoke during the forum in support of Steele, who he has known for 24 years. Davis said he grew up in the housing projects in Chicago. “In no way does he deserve the title of racist,” Davis said. “… He’s shown a lot of generosity throughout the community. Over the 24 years he’s shown without words his compassion and his love for the community. “Being reared in the housing projects, I know firsthand what true racism is, and Mayor Chuck Steele does not fit the bill.” After he addressed the council, Davis said residents support Steele. “Momence is one of the most peaceful towns that you’ll encounter in the United States,” Davis said. “We’re a small community. … The bottom line is this right here — get to know someone before you pass judgment.” During the mayor’s report during the council meeting, Steele said he and Police Chief Brian Brucato attended the NAACP law enforcement meeting in July in Kankakee. “Brian has already signed the 10 Shared Principles, and we will be getting posters of that made up,” Steele said. “We will be bringing that to the council next meeting to have the council approve it also.” The 10 Shared Principles are measures designed to build trust between law enforcement and communities of color. The Momence Police will also adopt the #8cantwait de-escalation initiatives for police. “For the most part we already do most of everything that’s on there, and I support our police department 100 percent,” said Steele, who declined to comment any further after the meeting.)

https://spectator.org/wrecking-the-american-dream/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the basic tasks of the political Left, not only in contemporary America but on a worldwide basis ever since the French Revolution, is to identify those social institutions that are healthy and functional, then ruin them completely, and call this result “reform.” Sometimes millions of people die as a result of the Left’s appetite for “reform” (e.g., collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union), but always innocent people are made to suffer on behalf of the allegedly idealistic motives of the self-anointed progressive “reformers.” Scarcely half a century ago, America’s system of higher education was the envy of the world, but that was before the Left instituted the kind of “reform” that produces unemployed Gender Studies majors saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in student-loan debt for degrees that don’t qualify them for any gainful employment. If you criticize the Left’s hegemonic influence in academia, of course, you will be accused of being “anti-intellectual,” as though leftists have a natural right to define the purpose, content, and structure of intellectual endeavor; anyone who doesn’t share the Left’s values is thereby disqualified from participation in academia. Our universities now exist not to provide young people with useful knowledge and career skills, but rather to indoctrinate them with the Left’s destructive belief system and train them to become political activists. Anyone who dissents from this agenda — even such eminent scholars as University of Pennsylvania Law Professor Amy Wax — becomes persona non grata on campus. As Thomas Sowell once remarked, “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.” Joe Biden has no clue about the Left’s agenda for America’s future because, let’s face it, the Democratic Party’s nominee has no clue about anything. Clearly in an advanced stage of senile dementia, Biden is a sock-puppet mindlessly repeating left-wing rhetoric written for him by young progressive staffers. The addled geriatric is being used as a “moderate” Trojan Horse to advance the agenda of a party whose ideological center of gravity is somewhere in a range between Nicolás Maduro and Pol Pot. Everyone can see the bait-and-switch charade Democrats are attempting to perpetrate. However, the national news media — another institution that the Left has completely ruined — are doing their darnedest to pretend not only that Joe Biden is a sentient and credible candidate for president, but that he is so overwhelmingly popular he’ll win in a landslide. The one question the media don’t want Americans to contemplate is what will happen if indeed Landslide Joe is elected. Because the Left — that is to say, the radicals who actually control the Democratic Party, and who would be empowered by Biden’s election — has some mighty ambitious plans for “reform.”)
