— Stevenson High School political event draws ire of Lake County GOP: ‘I’m disappointed we weren’t extended (an invitation)’ – KARIE ANGELL LUC
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/ct-lns-10th-district-democrats-straw-poll-st-0127-20200126-mycxpdkmkzbvzm67bfvly3psja-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The event had a distinct pro-Democrat, anti-Donald Trump feel, something that did not sit well with the chairman of the Lake County Republican Party. Signage and posters around the room were pro-Democratic. An anti-Trump poster was seen near the speaker’s podium. Some who spoke during the event dramatically called for an end to the Trump era. County GOP Chairman Mark Shaw said he was “taken back” when he heard about the event via email blast. “Generally, I’m disappointed we weren’t extended (an invitation),” he said. ”Frankly, my assessment of Stevenson High School is that they have basically decided to support liberal causes, and they aren’t interested in hearing different viewpoints. “I’m extremely disappointed given the amount of money that taxpayers pay to support Stevenson High School,” he added. “I do worry about the future of education.” . . . On Saturday, there was no evidence of Republican activism at the event. “Republicans generally don’t try to cause a scene,” Shaw said. However, he added, “Republicans believe in free speech.”)

And in fact, have returned contributions in excess of the limit already, as our (fourth quarter) filing will reflect,” Murphy said.)

LAWYERS
— 3 Types Of Age Discrimination That Are Depressingly Common And How Employers Get Away With It – Michael Patrick Murphy, Jr.
https://blogs.lawyers.com/attorney/labor-and-employment/3-types-of-age-discrimination-that-are-depressingly-common-60235/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and other state and federal laws, it’s illegal for employers to discriminate against employees or job applicants because of their age. However, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), approximately 60% of surveyed older workers claimed to have experienced or witnessed age discrimination in the workplace—and 90% of those respondents said it was a common occurrence. Even though age discrimination is illegal, employers have been taking increasingly creative measures to avoid complying with the law. Here are three different forms age discrimination can take. Refusing to Call It “Firing” Your employer probably won’t come out and tell you that they’re firing you because of your age. But employers do this all the time. One way they get away with it is by calling your firing a “job elimination.” They’re not actually firing you—just eliminating your job title. But a few weeks later, they’ve reinstated the job under a different title and filled the position with a younger worker. Layoffs can also serve as a tactic for employers to let older workers go. The law requires employers to release lists of employees who were both laid off and retained, along with their ages, to prove that the layoff decisions were not based on age. But employers may not list every worker—providing an incomplete picture of their layoff strategy. Or they may fire a few younger workers just to make the optics look better. Some employers might ask older workers to leave of their own free will, and sweeten the pot with offers for early retirement. These can be very tempting—but be careful, especially if the only alternative you have is to be fired. If that’s the case, you may be looking at age discrimination. Promotion-Based Discrimination When a highly qualified older worker is denied a promotion, which is then given to a younger worker with less experience—at a lower pay grade, naturally—it’s usually a fairly clear-cut case of age discrimination.)

Further, they hint/imply/argue/shout at everyone that a) those who are White, older, healthy, heterosexual, married, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, citizens of America, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time have an unfair advantage over those who are minority, younger, non-healthy, LGBTQ, not married, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, non-citizen, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Further, they hint/imply/argue/shout at everyone that a) those who earn more education, more professional certifications, and more professional licenses have an unfair advantage over those who earn less education, fewer professional certifications, and fewer professional licenses and b) those who acquire more work experience have an unfair advantage over those who acquire less work experience.

PJ MEDIA
— LGBT Activists Slander the Evangelicals for Trump Coalition – TYLER O’NEIL (DIERSEN: Sooner or later, LGBTQ activists will force LGBTQ elected officials and party leaders to get rid of those like me who do not promote LGBTQ activity.) 
https://pjmedia.com/trending/lgbt-activists-slander-the-evangelicals-for-trump-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On the third day of 2020, conservative Christian leaders met at a megachurch in Miami for an “Evangelicals for Trump” rally, launching a key part of the president’s re-election campaign. Shortly thereafter, LGBT activist groups and websites descended on the key figures of this coalition, attacking them as “hate group” leaders and “anti-LGBTQ extremists.” The LGBT magazine The Advocate dug up old statements and repeated the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to smear the evangelicals involved, citing research compiled by the activist group GLAAD. “One of the best-known among them is Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center,” Trudy Ring wrote. The SPLC fired its co-founder last year after a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal that also revealed how former employees saw themselves as “part of the con,” exaggerating hate by padding the “hate group” list and “bilking northern liberals” to cut big checks. It has faced multiple defamation lawsuits and paid millions to settle them. As for FRC, a deranged shooter targeted the organization due to the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation, which is based on false and exaggerated claims.)

Better yet, I should sue them.) 
https://wtmj.com/national/2020/01/15/reporters-claim-new-rules-will-hinder-impeachment-coverage/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A preliminary security plan would greatly limit the movement of credentialed media members. Journalists would be restricted to a designated area and could only speak to senators who approached them. Under normal conditions, credentialed journalists can informally approach lawmakers in the hallways or on the way to the elevator or the Senate subway. “That’s the bread and butter of what we do here. That’s where you get that extra nugget of information,” Wire said in an interview with The Associated Press. Members of the press corps are also asking for a waiver of the traditional ban on laptops and cellphones, which would enable them to file breaking news updates from gallery seats inside the Senate chamber, but that request has apparently been rejected. The security plan would also place a magnetometer at the door of the gallery seats to scan journalists as they enter and prevent them from bringing in electronics.)

I have asked Bob Grogan, who represents the 6th Congressional District, to appoint me to serve on that committee like Ron Smith did in 2008.

— Aldermen fear setting aside contracts for gay-owned businesses could lead to fraud, fewer contracts for people of color The City Council signed off on a study of the idea proposed by Chicago’s first openly-gay mayor. – Fran Spielman (DIERSEN: The more preference that is given to LGBTQers, the more people that will claim to be LGBTQers.) (WIREPOINTS: If set-asides are extended to gays, only 13.6% of Chicago’s population would be left without access to a set-aside – straight, white, males with no handicap, as we detailed earlier. In other words, over 86% of Chicagoans would be entitled to preferential treatment when bidding for city contracts. Maybe it would be easier just to designate the small minority that gets no preference.)

Why? Because Madigan just squashed a legislative investigation of Michael McClain, his closest confidant and a retired lobbyist who’s under a federal criminal investigation. That legislative inquiry would have examined McClain’s email defending a politically connected worker who “kept his mouth shut” about “that rape in Champaign.”)

https://ktvz.com/news/2020/01/14/oregon-lawmakers-to-tackle-age-discrimination-in-workplace/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Creating an age-discrimination task force will be a priority during the Oregon Legislature’s short session next month. The discussion on how to address the issue started in the 2019 session, after a 2018 AARP survey found three in five older workers in the state have seen or experienced age discrimination. According to the Oregon Bureau of Labor Industries, more than 2,500 age discrimination claims have been filed with the agency in the past decade. AARP Oregon State Director Ruby Haughton-Pitts said older workers are a valuable part of the labor force, especially with the state’s historically low unemployment numbers. “How can we have a broad enough discussion that actually creates a viable workforce for the future in our state,” she said, “and doesn’t X people out just because you see when they graduated from college or high school or whatever, but says, ‘This person has good skills; I need to take a look at them.'”)

— 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.”)

— GLAAD say chain needs to do more (DIERSEN: What more do LGBTQ activists want the religious, government, political, and financial leaders in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world to do?

(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.)

— Trump’s aides eye moving impeachment witnesses out of White House jobs – Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors in the federal government, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me. I should write a book about TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter leaders, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me.)
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.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who blame all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000 on me, on my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and on what I did as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member.)
