They stress the lack of minorities in Crete when I lived there during the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. In my defense, I stress that I bought a new town home in University Park in 1972.

EPOCH TIMES
— Congress Should Hire More Staff, Task Force Says – MARK TAPSCOTT (DIERSEN: All during the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the agency a) was almost always under hiring and promotion freezes and b) shrank in either absolute or relative terms.)
https://www.theepochtimes.com/congress-should-hire-more-staff-task-force-says_3152598.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Congress today is overwhelmed,” TFPCR stated. That’s due to “decades of self-imposed disinvestment in expertise and staffing.” “Congress today employs fewer staff aides than it did in the 1980s and early 1990s. Declines in staffing have been largest on committee staffs and at support agencies such as the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress’s principal repositories of policy expertise,” the report stated. “Given the complexity and size of the national government—and the informational resources held by the executive branch and interest groups—members of Congress simply require [more] extensive staff support in order to perform their jobs.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Drew Anderson, director of campaigns and rapid response for GLAAD, said in a statement that Chick-Fil-A must do more. “If Chick-Fil-A is serious about their pledge to stop holding hands with divisive anti-LGBTQ activists, then further transparency is needed regarding their deep ties to organizations like Focus on the Family, which exist purely to harm LGBTQ people and families,” he said in a statement. CNBC reached out to Chick-Fil-A for comment on the matter and was told it had nothing else to add.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Chick-fil-A Betrays Principles and Faithful Customers – Laurie Higgins (DIERSEN: Chick-fil-A’s dumping Christians will motivate Democrat, Libertarian, Green, and RINO governments to pass resolutions to dump Christians. In your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world, who takes the lead in dumping Christians?) 
https://illinoisfamily.org/faith/chick-fil-a/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a stunning act of betrayal, Chick-fil-A’s charitable foundation, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, has announced it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), or Paul Anderson Youth Home (PAYH). Though Chick-fil-A has not publicly acknowledged the reason for its betrayal, everyone knows what it is. Chick-fil-A is attempting to curry favor with the “LGBTQ+” community that is shredding our social fabric. This policy shift constitutes a cowardly betrayal of Chick-fil-A’s Christian ethos and its Christian customers who have stood by Chick-fil-A through all its trials at the hands of legions of supporters of sexual deviance. Broods of vipers identifying as apostles of justice, equality, tolerance, diversity, inclusivity, and compassion have been protesting and maligning Chick-fil-A since 2012 when Dan Truett Cathy, chairman and chief executive officer, made some public statements in an interview with the Baptist Press supporting true marriage and opposing the legal recognition of homosexual unions as marriages. After homosexuals got wind of Cathy’s theologically orthodox and unremarkable statements, some part of hell broke loose and raged against Chick-fil-A. Fortunately for Cathy and Chick-fil-A, Christians turned out en masse all across the country to show their support with their time and money for Cathy’s stand for truth. And this is how Cathy and Chick-fil-A repay them.)

https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/politics/donald-trump-never-trump-white-house-staff/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s one of the persistent anomalies of the impeachment inquiry: most of the witnesses airing concerns at Trump’s approach to Ukraine remain employed by him, despite his claims they are “Never Trumpers” and his overt suggestions they’ve already been fired. None, for now, have been explicitly fired by Trump, even as he and his allies suggest otherwise. It’s created an odd and uncomfortable situation for staffers, who say they are unclear on their colleagues’ futures in the administration. Over the weekend, a GOP talking point emerged that Trump was well within his rights to choose his own team, a response to Yovanovitch public recounting of the smear campaign orchestrated by Trump’s allies to push her from her post in Kiev. “America hired @realDonaldTrump to fire people like the first three witnesses we’ve seen,” the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted as Yovanovitch began her testimony. “Career government bureaucrats and nothing more.” A day later, Trump himself suggested on Twitter he’d already fired the three State Department employees who have appeared in public impeachment hearings, quoting the conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.)

— GOP’s small-fry fundraising – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/11/12/gops-small-fry-fundraising-madigan-hammers-arroyo-deval-patrick-eyes-white-house-run-487650
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since his exit from politics, the GOP has had to change direction. The party hopes its grassroots fundraising campaign, called Lincoln Legion, will raise funds the old-fashioned way. Hackler says 92 percent of all donations in 2019 have been of $100 or less. How it’s playing out: The party raised $36,405 during the most recent reporting period that ended Sept. 30, according to the State Board of Elections. That’s up from $19,000 in donations the previous three months. Republicans have $106,369 cash on hand — up from $88,412 at the end of June. The House Republican Organization has $417,006 cash on hand; the Republican State Senate Campaign Committee has $214,986 cash on hand; and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin has $1.1 million on hand. Those are small-fry numbers compared to the Democratic Party of Illinois, which has $819,289 cash on hand. Sure, there are more Dems in Illinois, but the differences are stark. Friends of Michael Madigan has $7.1 million, the Democratic Majority has $4 million, and the 13th Ward Organization, where Madigan holds sway, has $1.8 million. Pritzker isn’t the only reason Dem fundraising outpaces the GOP. There’s been an eroding of Republican support in the affluent suburbs. Call it the Trump effect, says Democratic political consultant Scott Kennedy. “The 2018 Democratic fundraising success has largely been attributed to a higher level of enthusiasm among Democratic voters but the number of check-writing affluent suburbanites who switched from Republican to Democrat in the Trump era likely also played a role,” he told Playbook. “If Illinois Republicans are going to rebound, they’ll need to reverse that trend.”)

http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, while some do not admit it, the following harm my electability: I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, old (born in 1948), gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, former union member, federal retiree, childless, pet-less, American nameplate vehicle owner, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, etc. Without admitting it, my Democrat superiors in the federal government used the aforesaid to justify the adverse actions that they took against me.

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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— With former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner out of state’s political scene, Illinois GOP turns to grassroots fundraising – RICK PEARSON (DIERSEN: What motivates you to donate money to Republican political organizations?

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-without-rauner-illinois-republicans-turn-to-grassroots-fundraising-20191014-uis6mwbrcvc3veh662sfqfofci-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its last filing with the State Board of Elections, the state GOP reported having $88,412 in cash on hand as of June 30. Rauner’s last donation to the state party, totaling $100,000, came two days after Democrat J.B. Pritzker defeated him for governor, 55% to 39%. Pritzker’s victory has turned the tables on Republicans. The Democrat is the country’s wealthiest politician, worth $3.4 billion and ranking 250th on the Forbes 400 list of wealthy Americans. President Donald Trump comes in at 275th on the list with a net worth of $3.1 billion. Pritzker gave his campaign $172 million and his campaign fund has given the state Democratic Party nearly $3.2 million, state campaign finance records show.)

My Democrat IRS superiors punished me. They 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors punished me. They forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)
