(DIERSEN: While I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years, they focused on getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $102,188) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $120,755) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $142,041) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $172,500) by age 40. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)

— Emanuel ‘Chris’ Welch says he’s Illinois House speaker because ‘my colleagues asked me to step up’ – JAMIE MUNKS
(DIERSEN: I served as the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois 2005-2012. I should write a book about those who did everything that they could to make my chairmanship fail and to make TAPROOT fail. I would focus on those who demonized, denigrated, and condemned the speakers that I recruited. I would focus on activists, candidates, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican but a) who blame me and TAPROOT for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems and b) who blacklist me and blacklisted TAPROOT. I would focus on those who were Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct who lost elections.)

— President-elect Joe Biden picks Sen. Tammy Duckworth to be a DNC vice chair. Duckworth will be taking on party chores heading into the 2022 contests in a cycle where she will be running for her second term. – Lynn Sweet
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who shout at Peter Roskam that he almost lost to Duckworth in 2006 a) because of what I had done as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, b) because of what I had done as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois Chairman since 2005, and c) because of what I had done as an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member since 2003.

— In Chicago, other cities, more cops are calling it quits, retiring amid anti-police backlash. Chicago police retirements were up 15% last year over 2019. In New York, retirements nearly doubled. Some Chicago cops cite anti-police rhetoric over the past year. – Frank Main and Fran Spielman
(DIERSEN: The main reasons why my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old included a) the ever-increasing hatred that my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates demonstrated against GAO employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and who had not made GS-13 (currently $102,188) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $120,755) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $142,041) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $172,500) by age 40 and b) my knowing that virtually no one would come to my defense if I did not retire.)

How soon will they ban Republicans from getting/holding jobs? How soon will they ban Republicans from owning firearms? How soon will they ban Republicans from owning property?

— Apathy Is Destroying Our Liberty – Michael Dorstewitz
https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/liberty-parler-twitter-liberty/2021/01/13/id/1005419/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, too, we’ve been slowly losing our liberty, and too many Americans don’t seem to care. The storming of the Capitol building a week ago accelerated that process beyond anything we could imagine a year ago. Conservative columnist and talk radio host Dennis Prager observed that in 1933, the Nationalist Socialists (Nazis) blamed the burning of the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament building, on Communists. They used it to drum the Communist Party out of existence and silence the voices of its members. Similarly, after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, the mainstream press, social media and Democratic leaders silenced any claims that didn’t echo the parry line — even to the point of censoring the president of the United States.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Legislators are returning to do their jobs. They should let reporters do theirs
https://capitolfax.com/2021/01/08/legislators-are-returning-to-do-their-jobs-they-should-let-reporters-do-theirs/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The House has decreed that it will not allow reporters on the floor of the 40,000 square foot BOS Center because of public health and security concerns. When I’ve objected, I’ve been asked why I wanted to be on the floor if I was going to have to remain at least six feet away from everyone else anyway. But adding a relative handful of reporters to a huge hall like that shouldn’t significantly increase viral load. House press credentials are not easily available, so the security concerns are unfounded and even insulting. And folks who are wearing masks are allowed to be closer together than six feet, as should be abundantly clear from these photos taken during the May special session. . .I’ve been tested for COVID-19 and won’t be venturing forth until the results come back and would be happy to provide testing documentation. I never go anywhere in public without wearing a mask, I don’t go to indoor restaurants and bars and nobody comes into my house without wearing a mask. I’m more than willing to take what will hopefully be a relatively moderate risk to do my job, and most other reporters I know agree. We’re essential workers who do necessary work. And the next several days could be the most momentous in Illinois government since I do not know when. Let us in.)

— Will Americans Ever Grow Wise To Alinsky?
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=100219
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, it needs to be established that while so much of the mayhem and vandalism occurring at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was perpetrated by antifa infiltrators with the intent of making real conservative patriots look bad, many of those who breached the boundaries and entered the Capitol were indeed on the right. Had that not been the case, the victim of the wanton police shooting would have been a leftist, and flags would be flown at half-mast for her from coast to coast, for at least a month. With emotions running so high, it may be risky to address the realities of the situation, and more specifically the deliberately stoked and overblown backlash from the media and the political class. Nevertheless the truth needs to be told. Unless people have a clear perspective on what actually happened in the aftermath, and how they were thoroughly emotionally manipulated by the “ruling class” and its media minions, they will never properly sort through all of the propaganda currently being dumped upon them. The left is in all of its evil “glory,” claiming indignation and fear, though its actual exuberance over its apparent “victory” can hardly be contained. On the basis of this single event, when magnified as shamelessly and hypocritically as only leftists can do, they believe all of their lies, corruption and treachery of the past four years, and particularly since Election Day, are somehow “vindicated.” Worst of all, RINO lackeys and even genuine Conservatives feel enormous pressure to genuflect at their feet and beg for absolution.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Democrats have declared a Second Civil War against Republicans. Democrats see the following as being their soldiers in their army: those who are anti-law enforcement, anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-heterosexuals, anti-married people, anti-non-poor people, anti-gun owners, anti-Christian, anti-Protestant, anti-Italian American, anti-German American, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. The Democrats believe that the majority of the following will help them get rid of Republicans once and for all: criminals, Trump-haters, liberals, moderates, America-haters, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, RINOs, citizens of foreign countries, minorities, females, young people, LGBTQers, non-married people, those who have less money than others, those who have more money than others, non-gun owners, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non-German Americans, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time.

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Republican Darren Bailey, who will be sworn into the state Senate next week, lashed out at Congressman Adam Kinzinger for criticizing President Donald Trump. “We got a sitting Illinois congressman, a Republican, that just wants to constantly drop kick Trump. Stupid,” Bailey said during his latest Facebook video talking to constituents about elected officials that should be booted from office. “Adam Kinzinger up north, calls himself a Republican. No, he’s a Democrat. Get him out of office.” Bailey included the comment “Stand down!” Kinzinger’s spokeswoman, Maura Gillespie, responded: “As the Congressman has said, this is a moment in our history that requires action. It requires a moral compass and genuine leadership. Congressman Kinzinger has chosen to lead without fear of the consequences and without concern for his political career.” Gillespie continued: “Our democracy and our country’s moral fiber are more important than appeasing the conspiracy theorists in this country or feeding into the misinformation campaigns we’re seeing all day on social media. Congressman Kinzinger is going to lead by doing the right thing, no matter the cost.” Get used to this heated exchange, folks. Kinzinger and Bailey are both considering a run for governor in 2022. The GOP primary is 14 months away. The two Republicans’ views on the world are indicative of the deep divisions within the party in Illinois and Washington, especially as Trump and his loyalists mount a last-ditch plan today to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Trump gave the Republican party new energy and momentum — and fresh issues to divide themselves over.- Shia Kapos

(DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.

The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. I was a bad hire a) because I refused to become a Democrat and b) because I refused to help my Democrat superiors get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40.)
https://www.theladders.com/career-advice/when-to-fire-a-bad-hire-here-is-a-step-by-step-guide
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nobody wants to be the person that is in charge of firing employees. And yet, someone has to do it and at some point, it might be you. Unfortunately, in the last several months especially, this economy has seen an uptick in firings and dismal because of financial circumstances beyond employees’ control. We’ve gotten used to uncomfortable conversations, unemployment, repetitive job searches, and remote opportunities and obstacles we never would have dreamt of before. When should you consider firing employees? But sometimes, firing isn’t about financial loss or having to lay off members of the staff for growth opportunities. Sometimes it’s about the employee’s performance, or finding out that they aren’t necessarily a good fit for your staff. So, what identifies a bad hire? Here are a few ways to pinpoint when an employee or new hire isn’t going to pan out.)

How strongly do they want governments to get rid of those who are law enforcement officers, Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, homeowners, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?

— Companies grapple with workers missing vacation – NOAM SCHEIBER
(DIERSEN: Between 1978 and 1992, my wife and I went on many vacations. She worked for the U.S. League of Savings Institutions ( https://www.investopedia.com/terms/u/u-s-league-of-savings-institutions.asp ) which had quarterly meetings at luxury destinations across America which she attended as its Corporate Secretary. I routinely accompanied her on those trips. Often, after the meetings were over, we visited nearby national parks. Further, I went on vacations with a coworker to Hawaii, Mexico, Bahamas, and Jamaica while I worked for IRS 1973-1976. Needless-to-say, my envy-filled IRS and GAO Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were beyond furious. Overwhelmingly, their spouses had little or no income.)

— Fourteen Points for Reviving America – Grover G. Norquist
(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs want everyone to think of themselves as a) being members of protected groups and b) being discriminated against. Protected groups include those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, disabled, veteran, citizens of foreign countries, Trump-haters, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non-German Americans, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, moderate, liberal, low-income, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, drinkers, gamblers, stoners, criminals, and those who lack education, lack job skills, lack job experience, have financial problems, have health problems, and/or have other problems.)
https://nationalinterest.org/feature/grover-norquist-fourteen-points-reviving-america-175159
(FROM THE ARTICLE: End identify politics/racial discrimination and quotas. On election day, the largest state in the nation, California, voted 55-45 to maintain their stated ban on racial discrimination in employment and education. The ban was enacted by a popular initiative in 1996 known as Prop 209. With this rejection of racial quotas in a vote of the people, the Supreme Court is more likely to be comfortable ruling that all racial quotas and discrimination by the government is unconstitutional. This would be a body blow to the identity politics of the Left.)

https://www.fool.com/investing/2021/01/02/why-facebook-stock-jumped-33-in-2020/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shares of Facebook climbed 33% last year, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. The social media titan saw its user base and engagement levels rise during the coronavirus pandemic, as people sought ways to remain in contact with family and friends while staying safe. So what. Facebook’s daily active users increased by 12% year over year to 1.8 billion in the third quarter. Across its entire family of apps — which includes Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger — the social media giant’s monthly active users rose 14% to a staggering 3.2 billion. That helped to drive a 22% jump in revenue to $21.5 billion. Net income, meanwhile, surged 29% to $7.8 billion, or $2.71 per share. These gains came despite an industrywide slowdown during the COVID-19 crisis, as many companies pulled back on ad spending in the early stages of the pandemic.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/travel/ct-trav-rails-to-trails-0103-20210102-bmkiqagstbgkbcfov7uq4do5du-list.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 61-mile Illinois Prairie Path (aka IPP) is one of the nation’s oldest rail-trails, dating to 1967. Following the right of way of the former Chicago Aurora and Elgin Railroad, the IPP consists of three main branches, each making for a delightful day trip from Chicago. (Wheaton, the central trailhead for all three, is just 30 miles from the Windy City.) Along the more urban Main Branch, Villa Park is worth a stop. Its Historical Museum housed in a reclaimed train depot displays several old train signals outside. Other remnants of the route’s railroad past are found in Wheaton’s Volunteer Park, where a contemporary sculpture was created from spikes, bolts and part of the Roarin’ Elgin’s original third rail. The 13-mile Aurora Branch is especially leafy, owing to the necklace of forest preserves along the way, including the St. James Farm. This former equestrian estate displays many horse-related bronzes and reliefs that will enthrall art enthusiasts. It also makes for serene picnicking beside a parcel of prairie gardens and a cattail pond. Not far from Wheaton, the 14-mile-long Elgin Branch slips into the verdant Lincoln Marsh Natural Area, where a network of nature trails with observation points — including a floating boardwalk — offer birders the opportunity to spot great egrets, green herons and other species.)

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/12/20/us/politics/election-hispanics-asians-voting.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Across the United States, many areas with large populations of Latinos and residents of Asian descent, including ones with the highest numbers of immigrants, had something in common this election: a surge in turnout and a shift to the right, often a sizable one. The pattern was evident in big cities like Chicago and New York, in California and Florida, and along the Texas border with Mexico, according to a New York Times analysis of voting in 28,000 precincts in more than 20 cities. Joseph R. Biden Jr. beat President Trump in almost all of these places en route to his record popular vote victory. But the red shifts, along with a wave of blue shifts in Republican and white areas, have scrambled the conventional wisdom of American politics and could presage a new electoral calculus for the parties.)

My mother never attended high school and she never worked outside the home until after he died. My outstanding parents provided me with room and board 1966-1968 while I took classes at UIC, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969.)

Then, I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile, and that changed everything because Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint after my Firestone Store manager had rudely fired me for accepting that offer. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS to be a GS-7 (currently $47,965/year) Revenue Officer in Chicago. As an IRS employee, I was a member of the National Treasury Employees Union. I accepted my Firestone Store manager’s offer to come back and work part-time. I lived in Crete with my mother and brother. After my Charger was stolen in Chicago, I bought a new 1972 Corvette and a 1962 Chevy Bel Air. Late in the year, Loyola accepted me into its Graduate School of Business.)

NATIONAL LAW REVIEW
— Nasdaq Proposed Rule Would Require Board Diversity and Transparency
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about groups that are ever-increasingly in the minority in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO). I would focus on groups that support the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. I would focus on how little if at all that IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO leaders defend or promote the aforesaid planks.)
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/nasdaq-proposed-rule-would-require-board-diversity-and-transparency
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its proposal, Nasdaq emphasized that this year’s “social justice movement has brought heightened attention to the commitment of public companies to diversity and inclusion.” The proposal also cites several academic publications that studied the relationship between diverse boards and improved financial performance and corporate governance. As a result, the proposal seeks to encourage companies to have boards of directors that better reflect the country’s diverse population. The proposal would accomplish this goal by requiring a few things from companies. Under the proposed rule, Nasdaq-listed companies, subject to certain exemptions, would be required to: report on their annual proxy statements or websites statistical information regarding the gender, race, and LGBTQ+ makeup of their boards; and have at least two diverse directors: one who self-identifies as female and one who self-identifies as “an [u]nderrepresented minority” or “a member of the LGBTQ+ community.” Companies with corporate boards that do not satisfy the diversity requirements would be required to explain in their annual proxy statements or on their websites why they did not meet the requirements. The term “underrepresented minority” will be construed in accordance with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) definitions, which include: “Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Asian, Native American or Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, or Two or More Races or Ethnicities.” Gender, underrepresented minority status, and LGBTQ+ status would be self-identified. According to the proposal, requiring an explanation from companies that do not satisfy the diversity requirements would provide investors with additional information so they can make more informed investment decisions. Nasdaq would phase the rule in over a period of several years. The proposed rule would require at least one diverse director no later than two years after the rule’s approval, and two diverse directors no later than four years after approval for companies listed on two of Nasdaq’s tiers, or five years for a third tier.)

I would focus on those who support the traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform. I would focus on how little if at all that IRP, DCRCC, and MTRO leaders defend or promote the aforesaid planks.)

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/dec/31/trump-demand-to-ax-section-230-could-alter-america/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mr. Trump and his supporters want the legal protection stripped from companies such as Twitter and Facebook so that they can swing back at social media platforms that they believe censor or diminish conservative speech online. But removing the protection contained in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act would give Twitter and Facebook greater latitude to enforce broader restrictions because failing to do so could result in heavy fines and expensive legal disputes. Eliminating the legal protection would make Twitter liable for all of the content in users’ tweets, make Facebook liable for all the content across its various platforms including Instagram, and make Wikipedia liable for whatever edits users make and the content they post. The biggest tech companies can afford to lawyer up against the ensuing onslaught of complaints in a manner that their smaller competitors cannot, and they would move quickly to change the boundaries of what is acceptable to publish online.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Adam Kinzinger is very devious and reckless politician. He was elected as a Tea Party candidate 10 years ago and quickly turned on them,” the Fox News host tweeted. “He is now an activist for the administrative state and against constitutionalists.” Levin proceeded to take additional swings at Kinzinger. “Unsurprisingly, he’s celebrated by the Dem-Party media. His attack on those earnestly trying to fix what the Dems broke during this election cycle & their efforts to prevent further usurpations of the Constitution (as they’ve announced their intentions), is unconscionable,” Levin added. “He should be defeated at the ballot box in the next Republican primary. Then he can join CNN or MSNBC as a full-time, conservative-trashing contributor,” Levin concluded. . .“I guess I hit a nerve. Don’t flatter yourself, Hollywood. And don’t worry about my finances.

https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2020/12/30/us-eu-urge-release-of-wuhan-citizen-journalist-.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The United States and European Union on Tuesday demanded that China release a citizen journalist jailed for reports from Wuhan, with top US diplomat Mike Pompeo accusing Beijing of covering up COVID-19. Zhang Zhan, a former lawyer in custody since May, was Monday handed four years in prison over her early online accounts that provided a rare unvarnished glimpse of the city where the mysterious respiratory illness was first detected a year ago. Pompeo in a statement called on China to “release her immediately and unconditionally.” “The Chinese Communist Party has shown once again it will do whatever it takes to silence those who question the party’s official line, even regarding crucial public health information,” outgoing President Donald Trump’s secretary of state said. Zhang’s reports challenged Beijing’s official narrative that the government valiantly defeated the virus, questioning hospital capacity and access to virus testing in the early days and showing aggression on the part of Chinese authorities to her filming on her phone. The 37-year-old was sentenced by a Shanghai court for “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.” Pompeo is an outspoken critic of Beijing who has attacked China over its role in the origins of the pandemic, which has claimed more than 1.7 million lives worldwide.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The roadmap’s premise is that “many Americans are ill-equipped to recognize and sift through false, misleading or emotionally manipulative posts” on social media platforms. So, to confront what they see as the combination of “ill-equipped” Americans and rampant disinformation and misinformation, the House Democrats propose a number of measures. . .For example, the Democrats propose creation of a new multiagency Digital Democracy Task Force, comprised of officials from across the federal government, with dedicated funding. The task force would be charged with developing communications strategies for the government to counter “disinformation and misinformation.” Because social media platforms seldom act as “responsible information gatekeepers,” the roadmap urges the government to prioritize grant funding to “experienced organizations” so that they can teach “vulnerable audiences” to spot propaganda and to “provide counter-narratives.” By now it should be evident why adoption of the Democrats’ roadmap likely poses a greater danger to democracy than ignoring it. This is not to say “misinformation” or “disinformation” on the social media platforms which are the roadmap’s primary targets doesn’t exist. It does. But there are serious disagreements every day — really, every hour — regarding what news and information on social media should be pinned with a Scarlet Letter. And it should be obvious too that the disagreements regarding claimed misinformation and disinformation extend to what the roadmap calls the “traditional news media,” which the House Democrats claim have higher editorial standards.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Dale Washburn, a Republican state legislator who introduced Ms. Loeffler at the event, had another warning. This one was based not on ideology, but on numbers that suggest Democrats are outpacing Republicans in early voting turnout — which means that Republicans may need a tremendous election-day performance on Jan. 5 if they are to win the state’s two high-stakes runoff races and maintain control of the Senate. “We’re fully aware of the energy on the other side, and think we’ve been reminded about that,” Mr. Washburn said. “We know demographics have changed in recent years. And if our side hasn’t been aware of that, they’re rapidly becoming aware of that. The Biden victory had a big part.”)

December 28 Morning Edition

WHITE HOUSE
— Statement from the President – BUDGET & SPENDING
https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/statement-from-the-president-122720/
(FROM THE STATEMENT: As President of the United States it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus. I understand that many small businesses have been forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states. Many people are back to work, but my job is not done until everyone is back to work. Fortunately, as a result of my work with Congress in passing the CARES Act earlier this year, we avoided another Great Depression. Under my leadership, Project Warp Speed has been a tremendous success, my Administration and I developed a vaccine many years ahead of wildest expectations, and we are distributing these vaccines, and others soon coming, to millions of people. As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child. As President I am demanding many rescissions under the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The Act provides that, “whenever the President determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is provided, or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal policy or other reasons (including termination of authorized projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), the President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message” describing the amount to be reserved, the relevant accounts, the reasons for the rescission, and the economic effects of the rescission. 2 U.S.C. § 683. I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed. I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill. I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more. On Monday the House will vote to increase payments to individuals from $600 to $2,000. Therefore, a family of four would receive $5,200. Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed. Likewise, the House and Senate have agreed to focus strongly on the very substantial voter fraud which took place in the November 3 Presidential election. The Senate will start the process for a vote that increases checks to $2,000, repeals Section 230, and starts an investigation into voter fraud. Big Tech must not get protections of Section 230! Voter Fraud must be fixed! Much more money is coming. I will never give up my fight for the American people!)

(DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. I have gathered signatures on candidate nomination petitions from Republican voters in my precinct since 2000. I should write a book about that. It is getting increasingly difficult a) because Republican voters in my precinct are moving into assisted living facilities, moving into nursing homes, moving out of Illinois, or dying and b) because their homes are being bought my nasty, if not hate-filled Democrats. Further, since 2000, Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, Independent plants, and RINOs in the Milton Township Republican Organization have done everything that they could to turn Republican voters in my precinct against me. I should write a book about them. Further, in 2015, they succeeded in gerrymandering my precinct. I lost about 100 homes west of the Illinois Prairie path and gained about 100 homes east of Warrenville Road. Far more of the homes that I lost were Republican than the homes that I gained.)

EPOCH TIMES
— High School Student Sues Over Leftist ‘Indoctrination’ in Nevada – MATTHEW VADUM
(DIERSEN: According to Democrats, oppressed groups include include those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, disabled, veteran, citizens of foreign countries, non-Trump supporters, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non-German Americans, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, moderate, liberal, low-income, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, drinkers, gamblers, stoners, and those who lack education, lack job skills, lack job experience, have financial problems, and/or have health problems.)
https://www.theepochtimes.com/high-school-student-sues-over-leftist-indoctrination-in-nevada_3634084.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A high school senior of mixed race is suing a taxpayer-funded charter school in Nevada over the “coercive, ideological indoctrination” that is central to its Critical Race Theory-based curriculum that forces students to associate aspects of their identity with oppression. In the lawsuit, Clark v. State Public Charter School Authority, filed Dec. 22 in federal court in Nevada, the young plaintiff William Clark and his mother Gabrielle Clark claim their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were being violated. Students were allegedly told that by refusing to identify with an oppressive group, they were exercising their privilege or underscoring their role as an oppressor. The lawsuit was filed by the Illinois-based group Schoolhouse Rights, whose website describes its mission as supporting “civil rights litigation in defense of students’ freedom of conscience in public education and the rights of parents to guide and direct the upbringing of their children.” The student at Democracy Prep in Las Vegas whose mother is black and deceased father was white, claims there was a hostile classroom environment, and that he felt discriminated against in the mandatory, year-long “Sociology of Change” course required for graduation. There is another required class, “Change the World,” in which students carry out a political or social work project.)

https://nypost.com/2020/12/27/beware-section-230-repeal-and-other-commentary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Those on the left and right calling for a complete repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act need to realize it would “return us to the legal no-man’s land” that prohibits even “good Samaritan” censorship, explain Sen. Ron Wyden and ex-Rep. Chris Cox in USA Today. Without the law, every one of the 200 million-plus Web sites available to Americans “will have to either stop publishing their users’ contributions, or let ‘anything go’ — no matter how gross or illegal.” Any “curating” will leave platforms liable for everything posted, so “hosting user-created content will be too costly and risky,” and “the many online avenues that ordinary citizens currently use to express themselves would be closed.” So while “Congress should examine whether it’s possible to amend Section 230 without doing more harm than good,” it must also remember that “sometimes those complaining about online speech are doing worse than crying wolf.”)
— The Left’s Drive To ‘Bias’ AI
https://nypost.com/2020/12/27/beware-section-230-repeal-and-other-commentary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Having algorithms “incapable of bias” make decisions rather than humans should be cause to celebrate, reasons computer-science prof Pedro Domingos at Spectator USA. But “militant” liberals are scrambling to retake control. “A whole subfield of AI has sprung up” for the express purpose of “de-biasing” algorithms, and anyone who questions it, as Domingos has, is subject to the cancel culture, as he was. Yet algorithms “can’t be racist or sexist.” What “cleaning” them up really means is “inserting into them biases favoring specific groups” and establishing the “social controls” the political left wants.)
