DAILY HERALD
— ‘A very stressful situation’: Why election night results were delayed in DuPage, Lake counties – Lauren Rohr (DIERSEN: According to a report, the DuPage County Election Division is processing 24,000 vote-by-mail ballots (VBM) that came in Friday-Monday that the signatures were verified on and those will be posted soon. There are 2,547 provisional ballots and 23,000 VBM ballots that have not been returned yet.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201104/a-very-stressful-situation-why-election-night-results-were-delayed-in-dupage-lake-counties-
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The DuPage County clerk’s office had posted some early and vote-by-mail counts, but none from its 930 precincts, before a 45-minute glitch snarled the transfer of data from the tabulation system to the website, Chief Deputy County Clerk Adam Johnson said. Tallies weren’t updated again until well after 10 p.m., and vote totals from all precincts weren’t posted until 1 a.m. . .A slew of tight races in DuPage, paired with the national attention placed on vote-counting processes, resulted in a “very stressful situation,” made worse when the data export tool froze, Johnson said. Election judges continued tabulating votes while the technical problems were being addressed, he said. Election authorities anticipated processing a high volume of ballots, Johnson said, and aside from the glitch, everything went according to plan. Additional vote-by-mail ballots were being processed Wednesday, with more expected to roll in over the next two weeks, he said, and the clerk’s office communicated frequently with party leaders on both sides. But DuPage County Republican Party Chairman Jim Zay called the delay “unacceptable,” saying the state’s second-largest county should be better equipped to handle the election night rush. “We’ve had too many elections that we’ve had these issues,” he said. “It has to be fixed.” Johnson acknowledged the county’s systems are slow and outdated, adding to what is already a high-pressure situation for candidates, voters and election officials. “We’re being as transparent as possible,” he said. “We have a constant inflow of ballots … and we just had a lot of data to update over the course of the evening.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201103/officials-vote-by-mail-volumes-could-significantly-change-results-over-next-2-weeks
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Though it’s uncertain how many of those outstanding ballots will actually be cast, Elections Board officials say many will likely roll in over the next two weeks, potentially flipping the outcome of some tight races. Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Election Day and received by Nov. 17 to be counted in final tallies. Election officials reported 177,118 outstanding mail-in ballots in suburban Cook County, 50,504 in DuPage, 10,917 in Kane, 59,118 in Lake, 18,306 in McHenry and 22,229 in Will. Those numbers represent 10.8% of total registered voters in suburban Cook County, 7.9% in DuPage, 3.4% in Kane, 12.1% in Lake, 7.8% in McHenry and 4.8% in Will.)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: This afternoon at a polling place in Wheaton, Sean Casten doubled down on his total disdain for anyone who disagrees with him. In a conversation with voters, Casten states, “If I win by less than ten, that says that 45% of the district is racist homophobes.” Listen to the audio here. Ives campaign spokeswoman, Kathleen Murphy: “Sean Casten doesn’t care to understand your disagreements with him. He just thinks you are a low-life if you don’t think like he does. “This isn’t how we come back together. It isn’t who the Sixth District is. But it is who Sean Casten is. And we are confident that voters are rejecting his toxic, divisive candidacy as we speak.”

— The high cost of systemic racism in the U.S. (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the many millions of dollars that my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted on me so that they could give preference to my coworkers and to my subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran. They wasted what I learned a) working for GAO 1980-1997, b) working for IRS 1971-1980, c) earning a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997, d) passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, e) earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, f) passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, g) earning an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and h) earning a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. In 1971, I would have become an Oldsmobile employee if Oldsmobile had not withdrawn its job offer because of EEOC. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

They want you to glorify them and praise them. They want you to serve as one of their operatives or dupes. They want you to give them money.)

— Illinois is nearing its contact tracing hiring goal. Is it too late? – HAL DARDICK (DIERSEN: From what I see, those who are the following are negatively stereotyped as being potentially infectious COVID-19 spreaders: older, overweight, and/or have health problems, including diabetes. Therefore, because of that, one would anticipate that a) employers will get rid of their employees who are the aforesaid and b) organizations will get rid of their members who are the aforesaid.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-coronavirus-illinois-contact-tracing-slow-start-20201102-rrbutujsbfhytb454vvu2yddhu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As Illinois finally nears its goal of employing 3,800 people to track down and warn the contacts of people infected with COVID-19, experts say that number may no longer be sufficient to help control the virus. That’s because contact tracing — which aims to reduce disease spread by identifying and isolating people who could be infectious — works best when infection rates are relatively low. The state is seeing record numbers of daily confirmed cases.)

— How seniors and their money would fare under a Trump or Biden presidency – Lorie Konish (DIERSEN: Interest rates are far lower than inflation. Democrats and RINOs use age discrimination to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, overweight and/or have other health problems, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/01/trump-vs-biden-what-the-election-could-mean-for-seniors-wallets.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Biden’s platform calls for strengthening age discrimination laws, Johnson noted, which could help seniors who want to continue working. A 2009 Supreme Court decision made it so that workers had to prove age was the only factor that led to a job loss, a higher bar to prove age discrimination in the workplace. Democrats in Congress have been trying to address that concern for the past decade, and Biden has said he supports those efforts, Johnson noted.)

My Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to turn those who I supervised against me. They stressed to those who I supervised that I was healthy, White, male, draft avoider, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), 100% German American, non-poor, married, Republican, conservative, Wheaton resident, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, I had three job-related master’s degrees, I had six job-related professional certifications, and I had a job-related professional license.)

https://abc7chicago.com/evanston-gathering-turns-violent-overnight/7540524/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A gathering that included some Northwestern University students turned violent in Evanston overnight Sunday. Some Whole Foods windows were boarded up Sunday morning after a gathering in downtown Evanston became violent, according to police. Police said an unruly crowd began throwing bricks and fireworks at officers. There were windows broken and other property damage in the city’s downtown shortly before midnight Saturday. Several officers were treated for minor injuries. Other police departments from neighboring communities were called in to help restore order. It is unclear what the students were protesting last night. Recently, a student group has been demanding that the Northwestern University cut ties with campus police. University President Morton Schapiro wrote a letter to the community after an earlier incident acknowledging the concerns of injustice, but he also made it clear the school has no intention of dissolving its police department. In a letter last week, Schapiro highlighted a new safety oversight board that will be made up of faculty, staff and students.)

— 3 Things You Should Consider Before Changing Careers – Terina Allen (DIERSEN: Have you changed careers? In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I suffered a $20,157/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. My critics opponents shouted that was a) proof that IRS had overpaid me, b) proof that I had changed careers, and c) proof that the experience that I had gained by working for IRS 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, was worthless. In fact, much of what I did for IRS as a Revenue Officer was similar to what I would do for GAO as an Analyst, including financial investigation; interviewing; gathering, summarizing, and analyzing data; writing reports; and making recommendations. My Democrat IRS superiors had made very clear that they would never promote me beyond GS-12. They had disallowed my education deductions in 1978, gotten rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. They had dismissed and belittled the fact that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.)

— Trump Calls Republican Critics ‘Lowest Form Of Human Life,’ Says He’s ‘Running Against’ Them – Andrew Solender (DIERSEN: RINOs have always worked extremely hard against me.

They ended a) my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, b) my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, c) my Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, d) my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, and e) my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004. They almost succeeded in getting ICRC to censure me in 2006 because of my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They crushed my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004. I should write a book about the aforesaid RINOs.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/10/28/trump-calls-republican-critics-lowest-form-of-human-life-says-hes-running-against-them/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump offered perhaps his most scathing attacks on members of his own party who have criticized him publicly – referred to as ‘RINOs’, short for Republicans in Name Only – amid a deepening divide between the president and Republican lawmakers as his reelection prospects have become increasingly grim. At a rally in Arizona on Wednesday, Trump claimed he is not only running against former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic party, but the “left wing mob,” the “big-tech giants” and “the RINOs.” Just in the last few months, Trump has used the term ‘RINO’ to describe Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), as well as Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, former House Speaker Paul Ryan, former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and former Rep. Tom Ridge. Trump has also used the term to refer to former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, the members of The Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans, Republican governors who criticized his handling of coronavirus and any Republican voters who do not approve of his job performance. Trump has increasingly incorporated RINOs into his stump speech in recent months as part of his “drain the swamp” narrative, calling them “sickos” and declaring they are “worse than the Democrats.” He took his denunciations one step further on Wednesday, stating he prefers leftists to RINOs, who he called the “lowest form of human life,” and even speculating that audio difficulties at his rally were caused by one: “It’s probably a RINO operating the thing.” Trump’s increased focus on RINOs comes as sitting Republican officials have shown an increasing willingness to break with him publicly.)

My ancestors on my father’s side have lived there since 1854. My brother continues to live there in a house that my grandfather had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864.)

(FROM ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CHICAGO: Crete, Will County, 30 miles S of the Loop. Located just south of Cook County, Crete grew alongside the wagon road known as Vincennes or Hubbard’s Trail, later the route of the Dixie Highway and Illinois Route 1. Among the first landowners were the family of Willard and Diantha Wood, who arrived in 1836. By the mid-1840s a small market center had developed in the community known as Wood’s Corners. In 1843, Wood served as the first postmaster and selected the name Crete from the New Testament writings of St. Paul. Wood platted the village in 1849, served in elected positions, donated land for churches, and built a frequently used hotel. Immigrant Germans arrived in the 1840s and 1850s. Into the twentieth century, German could be heard as often as English in Crete. Due mainly to families associated with the Congregational Church, Crete was a key stopping point on the Underground Railroad, and strong abolitionist sentiment led to a large enlistment for the Civil War. Initial businesses related to farming, with a woodworking plant established in 1869. Also in 1869, the Chicago, Danville & Vincennes Railroad came through Crete, connecting to markets in Chicago.
