If I sought a government office, for example, Wheaton West District City Counsel, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that I get a $54,168/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $18,000+/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that the aforesaid is grossly excessive and that the federal government grossly overpaid me. Further, they would stress that I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Crete resident 1948-1972, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/best-case-scenario-august-peak-virus-dupage-county
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If severe control measures including strict social distancing are not put in place, coronavirus infections could top 210,000 in DuPage County by early May — 23 percent or more of the population. That’s the conclusion of Columbia University researchers as reported by the New York Times, which compiled maps showing the estimated spread of the virus in every county in America under varying scenarios for control measures. Under the best-case scenario, including strict imposition of measures like closing schools, banning mass gatherings, and testing and quarantining sick people and their contacts, the peak of infection could be pushed past July 31, with as few as 9,000 cases — just 1 percent of the DuPage County population. But even in a scenario falling somewhere between these two extremes, the number of infections could top 160,000 by the middle of June, about 18 percent of the population, the researchers concluded.)

https://www.seattletimes.com/business/local-business/as-advertising-dries-up-amid-coronavirus-shutdown-washington-news-outlets-lay-off-staff/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Coronavirus has infected Washington’s media ecosystem. The statewide shutdown of most businesses and a halt to events, ordered to slow the virus’s spread, have dried up advertising revenues at news outlets across the state. Layoffs and furloughs have followed, putting additional pressure on the remaining reporters and editors, who are already working overtime — and usually working from home — to feed the public’s need for news about the virus. Almost no paper in Washington has remained unscathed.)

— Local journalism needs a coronavirus stimulus plan, too – Margaret Sullivan

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Media readership and viewership is soaring as citizens seek life-or-death information about the coronavirus: Where to get tested? Does my hospital have enough ventilators? Is it safe to go outside? But the accompanying economic decline is killing off advertising – for restaurants, cars, travel, entertainment – and other support that has kept many news organizations going. For some, the events of the past few weeks have already proved too much for their fragile existence. Alternative weeklies have stopped printing. Local dailies are laying off staff at already decimated newsrooms. Many others, including digital-only newsrooms, are hanging on by a thread. It’s happening around the world: Newspapers in Australia and Britain announced in the past few days that they were going out of business or suspending print publication. “Journalists are essential in this moment,” Craig Aaron, president and co-CEO of Free Press, a Washington-based advocacy nonprofit, told me in an interview. “We need to keep reporters working, and we have to do it now.”)

https://cnsnews.com/commentary/dr-michael-coulter/conservatives-go-college
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservatives, don’t give up on higher education. That’s essentially the opposite of what conservative political activist Charlie Kirk, leader of the conservative youth organization, Turning Point USA, told a crowd of young people at CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Kirk’s main contentions are that college isn’t really needed for a good career and that college has radicalized youth. My advice is that it’s against the interests of conservatives to follow this advice.)

— Coronavirus Too Great an Opportunity for Left to Waste – Clarence McKee (DIERSEN: What do you say to RINO candidates in Illinois who talk and/or act like they might dump Trump and his supporters like me to win on March 17, 2020 and November 3, 2020?)
https://www.newsmax.com/clarencevmckee/scalise-virginia-pittsburg-synagogue/2020/03/16/id/958544/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the nation panics over the coronavirus (COVID-19), Washington Democrats and their media allies are doing their best to weaponize the issue. From their point of view, the virus is too great a political opportunity to waste. The weaponizing of the virus for political gain has already begun — at the expense of the economy and the livelihoods of Americans. You would think that, in this time of national crisis, Democratic leaders would call for political unity in fighting the disease — not quite. Instead, they are spreading their own “virus of divisiveness.” Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accused the Trump administration of “incompetence and recklessness” [that] has “threatened the lives of many people in our country.” Former Vice-President Biden added more fuel to the virus panic, saying, ” . . . Public fears are being compounded by a pervasive lack of trust in this president.” This is just more of the left’s divisive rhetoric. It’s so disgusting to hear Washington Democrats, left-wing media pundits, supporters of Joe Biden — and Biden himself — say that President Trump has created an atmosphere of hate and divisiveness in the country. On ABC’s “This Week” in February of this year, Biden said that Trump was “dividing us based on race” and that he “has not condemned white supremacy and neo-Nazis.”)

— Why the rich favor the Democrats – Peter Skurkiss (DIERSEN: Rich people have never had to pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, or Inclusion. I should write a book about such rich people in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, in Wheaton’s West District, in my precinct, etc. I would focus on the aforesaid who focus on destroying me because I oppose patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/03/why_the_rich_favor_the_democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do the wealthy align with the Democrats? The answer may seem counter-intuitive, but it is really quite simple. It’s surely not ideals or high-minded principles. Nor is it ignorance. Rather, it boils down to raw self-interest. In his book, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties, Christopher Caldwell notes that rich Americans think themselves to be as vulnerable as blacks. They are a relatively small minority of the population. They fear being resented for their wealth and power and of having much of that taken from them. Accordingly, the wealthy seek to protect what is theirs by preventing strong majorities from forming by using the divide and conquer principle. As R.R. Reno writes when reviewing Caldwell’s book: “Therefore, the richest and most powerful people in America have strong incentives to support an anti-majoritarian political system.” He goes on: “Wealthy individuals shovel donations into elite institutions that incubate identity politics, which further fragments the nation and prevents the formation of majorities.” Some of the rotten fruit of the wealthy taking this approach include multiculturalism, massive immigration of diverse people, resistance to encouraging assimilation, racial strife, trying to turn white males into pariahs, and the promotion of gender confusion. Through it all, society is bombarded with the Orwellian mantra that “diversity is strength,” as if repeating it often enough can make it so. It is also why patriotism and a common American culture are so disparaged today. Those from the upper strata of society project the idea that if you’re a flag-waving American, you must be some kind of retrograde mouth-breathing yokel. The wealthy as a groups are content to dissolve the glue that holds the U.S. together. And it is all done to enhance and preserve their power, wealth, and influence. This is why they so hate Donald Trump. He strives to unite people and the country, although you’d never know that that is what the president is doing if you live in the media bubble. Trump’s MAGA agenda is an anathema to the managerial class.)

While you may think the government enforced closing of events, schools, etc. is helping prevent the spread of this infection, you are impacting local, state and national economies and adding unnecessary panic and fear in the American people. What happens in 2 weeks? Are you willing to indefinitely close institutions? At what point do we go back to our normal lives? This has been a huge disruption. Sincerely, Liz Uihlein, President, Uline)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A former journalist turned State Senator is trying to ensure that small towns have proper news coverage. State Senator Steve Stadelman of Rockford has introduced Senate Bill 3457, the Local Journalism Task Force Act, that has been referred to the Senate Commerce and Economic Development Committee. The act creates a task force that would conduct a comprehensive study relative to communities under served by local journalism in the state. It would review all aspects of local journalism including the adequacy of press coverage of communities, the ratio of residents to media outlets, the history of local news in the state, print and digital business models for media outlets, the impact social media has on local news, and explore public policy to improve the sustainability of local journalism through either private or nonprofit solutions.)
