— It’s now even easier to fire U.S. workers for what they say – Josh Eidelson and Hassan Kanu (DIERSEN: Have you been fired? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors fired me, that is, they forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” They fired me because I had become an active member of a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. They fired me because I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about those who claim to be conservative and/or Republican, but who side with my Democrat GAO superiors. I would focus on past U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. I would focus on present and present leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. All of the aforesaid talk and/or act like they reject the equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) plank in the Republican Party platform. All of the aforesaid pander to minorities and pander to women, and especially to minorities and to women who are younger.)

— Equity in Illinois higher education: ‘We are failing our African American students.’ – Raymon Troncoso (DIERSEN: What limited your educational achievements? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. While I attended high school, I did yard work, delivered newspapers, and washed dishes. The summer after high school, I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline. While I earned my bachelor’s degree, I delivered mail and worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard. While I earned my master’s degrees, I pumped gasoline, collected delinquent taxes, and audited federal agencies.)

— Illinois district includes students of color in groups with first chance at in-person learning. ‘There was a pandemic before this,’ superintendent says. ‘That was inequity and racism’ – Sam Dorman (DIERSEN: To give preference to one group is to discriminate against another group. To give preference to those who are minority, female, LGBTQ, younger, not married, product of a non-traditional family, non-Christian, non-Italian American, non-German American, non-veteran, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Independent, RINO, moderate, liberal, in America illegally, those who have less money than others, and/or those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time IS TO DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THOSE WHO ARE White, male, heterosexual, older, married, product of a traditional family, Christian, Italian America, German American, veteran, Republican, conservative, citizen of America, those who have more money than others, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.foxnews.com/us/illinois-schools-black-brown-students-in-person-learning
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Because District 65, which includes students from Evanston and Skokie, won’t force teachers to work on-site, school buildings may not be able to accommodate all students who would like to come back to their classrooms. In that event, Superintendent Devon Horton reportedly said, the district would give priority to “Black and Brown students,” and others it considered to be “marginalized” or “oppressed.” “This decision aligns directly to the guidance released by the Illinois State Board of Education on June 23 in using an equity lens to implement and transition into blended learning. This was also a top idea recommended by our Community-based Task Force,” school district spokeswoman Melissa Messinger told Fox News. “As a community deeply committed to educational equity, we will continue to root our decisionmaking on how to best serve our most vulnerable student populations.”)

Ludlow (DIERSEN: Democrats and RINOs use Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are Trump supporters, conservative, White, male, older, non-veteran, non-poor, draft avoiders, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/08/human_resources_and_cancel_culture.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Current human resource (HR) policies deliberately misuse terms such as diversity and equity to achieve political ends. That isn’t news. But the process by which those terms were twisted into their current shapes is worth a look. Likewise, it is important to see how their current usage is grounded in economic ignorance and unsound ethics. Sadly, the resultant HR policies — including microaggression training and gender-and-race training — feed a growth industry of diversity hucksters. These quick-buck artists subvert productive corporate meritocracies and replace them with systems that enshrine mediocrity, manufacture complaints, and generate resentment – not to mention whining and pearl clutching. Even worse, the dismal results of these programs only seem to validate those who started them! The dysfunctional corporate cultures they create give politically motivated HR staff an opportunity to “referee” disputes among their newly infantilized employees. Meanwhile, adults who just want to do their jobs well, get paid, and go home are marginalized or driven off – as in the case of Google engineer James Damore; scores of editors, journalists, and columnists; and university professors in the U.S. and Canada.)

— A lesson in contrasts: How the GOP purged its leader amid corruption allegations – Editorial
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-corruption-madigan-comed-lee-daniels-20200807-3q6u23z34ncvrii6mlctw2ydwy-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In June 2002, then-Illinois Republican Party Chairman Lee Daniels abruptly announced his resignation from that party post as pressure mounted, including from the GOP state attorney general, to remove unwanted “distractions” in an election year. Daniels and his chief of staff had fallen under the radar of federal prosecutors who were investigating whether GOP staff members did campaign work on state time. “The party deserves to serve its purpose without unwarranted distractions,” Daniels, who as House minority leader was House Speaker Michael Madigan’s counterpart, said in announcing he would step down as party chair. “For that reason, it is best that I refocus my energy and encourage others to refocus theirs.” Not long after, the House Republican caucus voted 33-18 to install a new House leader, Rep. Tom Cross, after Daniels lost support among his colleagues in that role too. Daniels had not been charged and was only peripherally linked to a time sheet scandal, but the whiff of a federal corruption probe pushed his members to force him out of leadership. Three years later, Daniels’ chief of staff, Michael Tristano, formally was indicted and later pleaded guilty to a fraud charge as part of a probe into state workers’ diverting taxpayer resources to campaigns. Tristano also was accused of working out a deal with a real estate group to put a Republican candidate on its payroll. In exchange, the real estate group’s project received more than $1 million in state funds, prosecutors said. Other statehouse insiders, including Madigan, then-Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka and Senate President Emil Jones, also had been asked to turn over records as part of a state-resources-to-campaigns scandal. Shortly after Tristano’s indictment in 2005, Daniels announced he would retire from his remaining position as a state representative. Daniels was not implicated in Tristano’s indictment, and he was never charged with wrongdoing. But he left anyway. A top GOP party and policy leader in the state who once held three positions of power was gone, pushed out by his own members and a nudge from the previous GOP attorney general, Jim Ryan, who had forwarded corruption allegations to federal investigators. Under the lens of compare and contrast, then and now, one takeaway is this state’s breathtaking tolerance for corruption. It has settled into the system of governance and politics as its own permanent institution. Corruption is an expected byproduct of serving in public office, like wind makes waves.)

I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who promote booze, gambling, pot, and other vices. They stress that unlike them, I am not a member of a church, I do not attend church services, and I do not give money to a church. They stress that on Saturday evenings or Sunday mornings, instead of attending church services like they do, I put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and send them out. I would focus on those who hate Missouri Synod Lutherans (MSL). I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a MSL. My outstanding parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with MSL.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mryan said she was particularly troubled by a comment made on social media about the Hinsdale Black Lives Matter group. “They said that Hinsdale is a utopia, so why would we want this here,” she said. “If it’s going to be a utopia, hearing these stories is very important.” Mryan said all submissions of experiences are anonymous, a decision the group made after consideration. “It was about weighing the possibility of someone making up a story that is told versus the possibility of someone with a story not telling it,” she said. “I have faith in the people who are sharing their stories.” The Hinsdale Black Lives Matter group attracted about 500 people to its June 6 demonstration. Mryan said the demonstration was organized in the wake of the May 25 death of George, but added that there is more to it than that incident.)

— Wanted: Young People To Work The Polls This November – Barbara Sprunt (DIERSEN: What do you stress to those who question your age and health? I stress that nothing has stopped me from putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email a) each and every morning since 2004 and b) each and every evening too since 2015. Those emails have included links to more than 375,200 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
https://www.wbez.org/stories/wanted-young-people-to-work-the-polls-this-november/34b76fd0-0bff-4671-8131-6df2952b5f19
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most poll workers are over 60 Weiss’ group is just one effort to find new poll workers for the general election. In an unusual partnership, entities including Comedy Central, the Fair Elections Center, Patagonia, Uber and Levi Strauss & Co. are recruiting poll workers. “It really does speak to the level of concern that all of these folks who normally aren’t on the same side of things see the need to come together and solve this big problem,” says Scott Duncombe, who’s heading a new initiative called Power the Polls. Through digital marketing, Power the Polls aims to recruit 250,000 new poll workers on behalf of its partner organizations, most of which fall under Civic Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of businesses. Civic Alliance is encouraging its members to provide paid time off for employees who elect to staff poll locations. According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 58% of poll workers in the 2018 general election were over 60, an age that is linked to a higher risk for complications with COVID-19. A shortage of election workers plagued some early primary states, and election experts fear a massive shortage for the general election. “We’re talking about enormous numbers of poll workers who are not going to feel comfortable, and already have shown it in the primary, being in the polling places in the midst of a pandemic when they have concerns about their health,” says Bob Brandon, president of the Fair Elections Center. Brandon says even in normal times, convincing people to sign up to staff the polls can be challenging. It’s usually a 12-hour-plus day, with minimal pay and a fair amount of stress. Add in all the health concerns a pandemic brings, and it’s even harder to attract new workers. And although voting by mail is expected to increase dramatically this fall, Brandon says robust, in-person voting remains essential. “If you have a disability that requires you to be on an accessible machine to vote, you need to be there in person,” he says. “If you’re in a community that has terrible mail service, which many poor communities complain of, that’s an important need. Many people in the African American community have a distrust of anything different than taking a ballot and putting it into a machine, because of the history of voter suppression that they’ve encountered.” Brandon adds, “We can’t allow the lack of poll workers to mean there’ll be a lack of opportunities for people to vote in person, which will only lead to longer lines and other problems that ultimately mean fewer people vote.”)

I own a 2005 Corvette that I bought in 2005 with money that I got from selling my 1968 Dodge Charger R/T and my 1962 Chevy Impala SS.

FEDERAL TIMES
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: Degree requirements are on the way out for federal jobs – Jessie Bur (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. In 1971, when I was 22 year old, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have hired me if I had not had earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (in management) in 1970. In 1972, 1973, and 1974, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have promoted me if I had not been taking job-related (business) graduate courses. In 1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me if I had not earned a job-related master’s degree (in business) in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and almost completed the requirements for my second job-related (in accounting) master’s degree. In 1986, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have promoted me if I had not completed the requirements for my a second job-related (accounting) master’s degree in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981. The Democrats who ran GAO would have succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” sooner than they did if I had not become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant in 1990 and if I had not completed the requirements for my third job-related (finance) master’s degree in 1997.)

KANKAKEE DAILY JOURNAL
— Momence residents turn out to support city leaders – Chris Breach (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, BLM, that is, the Democrat Party, makes its demands on municipalities. How has your municipality responded? How is your municipality responding? How will your municipality respond?)
https://www.daily-journal.com/news/local/momence-residents-turn-out-to-support-city-leaders/article_de58c29c-d5fc-11ea-9d1b-abcbcf3f2cf3.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Protesters were out in full force Monday outside Momence City Hall before and during the evening’s city council meeting, but so were Momence residents. Approximately 40 residents showed their support for their community as a Black Lives Matter rally drew about 25 to 30 people who were chanting and holding signs. Momence resident Steve Gross said he was hoping to get inside the city council meeting to talk about this weekend’s upcoming community garage sales. The meeting space had reached capacity limits and members of the public were admitted in turns. “People need to be responsible and stuff, but I couldn’t even get in to address anything with all this,” Gross said. “Actually, I had somebody engage me and be aggressive toward me. … It’s super unfortunate.” The protesters were on the sidewalk just east of the City Hall entrance, while the town supporters remained on the west side of the entrance. There were a couple skirmishes. At 8 p.m. police squad cars from St. Anne, Grant Park, two from Manteno and one from Kankakee County Sheriff’s department arrived and parked on West Washington Street. Those officers joined four officers from the Momence Police department who were there for crowd control and to keep peace. “You’ve got some people who are being hotheads, and some people are reasonable,” Gross said. Mayor Chuck Steele was in attendance and presided over the council after missing the previous two meetings due to his wife’s illness. The protesters have voiced their displeasure of Steele regarding statements he made about a June 9 BLM march in Momence and his calling for Alderwoman Rebekah Cope-Evers’ resignation because she attended the event. The protesters were chanting “Black Lives Matter,” “Momma, I can’t breathe” and holding signs that read “No justice, No Peace,” and “Make Racism Wrong Again.” A couple of the residents who showed up in support of their community were holding signs that read “We Support Our Mayor & Police,” and others were carrying the American flag and “Back the Blue” signs. “We love our mayor,” one resident said. “I’m here to just support my town,” Momence resident Michael Quirk said. “I think just like everyone else, everyone is fed up with all the protests and stuff, and I think the mayor took offense when that happened. I think he took it to heart because he knows that this isn’t a racist town. There’s no bigotry or anything, and it just got spun out and everyone took their opportunity.” Several people spoke during the citizen forum portion of the meeting, including Julia McDonald, of Kankakee, who asked the mayor for a public apology. “We ask that you let go of your defensiveness and instead open your eyes and your ears,” she said in part. “Listen to people when they have something to say on these streets, whether you agree with them or not.” Normon Davis, a Black Momence resident, spoke during the forum in support of Steele, who he has known for 24 years. Davis said he grew up in the housing projects in Chicago. “In no way does he deserve the title of racist,” Davis said. “… He’s shown a lot of generosity throughout the community. Over the 24 years he’s shown without words his compassion and his love for the community. “Being reared in the housing projects, I know firsthand what true racism is, and Mayor Chuck Steele does not fit the bill.” After he addressed the council, Davis said residents support Steele. “Momence is one of the most peaceful towns that you’ll encounter in the United States,” Davis said. “We’re a small community. … The bottom line is this right here — get to know someone before you pass judgment.” During the mayor’s report during the council meeting, Steele said he and Police Chief Brian Brucato attended the NAACP law enforcement meeting in July in Kankakee. “Brian has already signed the 10 Shared Principles, and we will be getting posters of that made up,” Steele said. “We will be bringing that to the council next meeting to have the council approve it also.” The 10 Shared Principles are measures designed to build trust between law enforcement and communities of color. The Momence Police will also adopt the #8cantwait de-escalation initiatives for police. “For the most part we already do most of everything that’s on there, and I support our police department 100 percent,” said Steele, who declined to comment any further after the meeting.)

https://spectator.org/wrecking-the-american-dream/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the basic tasks of the political Left, not only in contemporary America but on a worldwide basis ever since the French Revolution, is to identify those social institutions that are healthy and functional, then ruin them completely, and call this result “reform.” Sometimes millions of people die as a result of the Left’s appetite for “reform” (e.g., collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union), but always innocent people are made to suffer on behalf of the allegedly idealistic motives of the self-anointed progressive “reformers.” Scarcely half a century ago, America’s system of higher education was the envy of the world, but that was before the Left instituted the kind of “reform” that produces unemployed Gender Studies majors saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in student-loan debt for degrees that don’t qualify them for any gainful employment. If you criticize the Left’s hegemonic influence in academia, of course, you will be accused of being “anti-intellectual,” as though leftists have a natural right to define the purpose, content, and structure of intellectual endeavor; anyone who doesn’t share the Left’s values is thereby disqualified from participation in academia. Our universities now exist not to provide young people with useful knowledge and career skills, but rather to indoctrinate them with the Left’s destructive belief system and train them to become political activists. Anyone who dissents from this agenda — even such eminent scholars as University of Pennsylvania Law Professor Amy Wax — becomes persona non grata on campus. As Thomas Sowell once remarked, “The next time some academics tell you how important diversity is, ask how many Republicans there are in their sociology department.” Joe Biden has no clue about the Left’s agenda for America’s future because, let’s face it, the Democratic Party’s nominee has no clue about anything. Clearly in an advanced stage of senile dementia, Biden is a sock-puppet mindlessly repeating left-wing rhetoric written for him by young progressive staffers. The addled geriatric is being used as a “moderate” Trojan Horse to advance the agenda of a party whose ideological center of gravity is somewhere in a range between Nicolás Maduro and Pol Pot. Everyone can see the bait-and-switch charade Democrats are attempting to perpetrate. However, the national news media — another institution that the Left has completely ruined — are doing their darnedest to pretend not only that Joe Biden is a sentient and credible candidate for president, but that he is so overwhelmingly popular he’ll win in a landslide. The one question the media don’t want Americans to contemplate is what will happen if indeed Landslide Joe is elected. Because the Left — that is to say, the radicals who actually control the Democratic Party, and who would be empowered by Biden’s election — has some mighty ambitious plans for “reform.”)

— Who Is Black Lives Matter? – Jerry Dunleavy
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/who-is-black-lives-matter
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fact is, “black lives matter” is a matter of common decency entirely separate from the activist, ideological, left-wing agenda of the BLM group. That organization has stated aims that go far beyond addressing police brutality. Its goals include, without apology, the upending of American society. Yet it has gained massively more attention, support, and money since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis police custody. It is therefore important that the public, much of which thinks that by supporting BLM, they are backing obviously decent and humane reforms, knows enough to make the distinction between the idea and the ideologues hijacking it. The co-founders of Black Lives Matter are avowed Marxists. At least one names a convicted cop killer among her heroes. A key mentor in building and shaping the group is a two-time vice presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA. The national organization is financially supported through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist. A 2017 report from Black Lives Matter describes its founders, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, and Opal Tometi, as “three radical Black organizers.” The women espouse Marxism and openly push radical identity politics.)

— Excitement has diminished, but dirty work continues – Jim Dey (DIERSEN: How soon, if not already, will Democrats officially call for a boycott against all businesses that are owned by those who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, draft avoiders (except Joe Biden), and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)
https://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/columns/jim-dey-excitement-has-diminished-but-dirty-work-continues/article_bf9cffe1-731c-5610-8026-fc98a107b155.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The first event held July 7 was in coordination with a national boycott against all businesses to demonstrate the economic power of Black people, and bring attention to institutional racism woven into government and business policies that are in need of reform. Black people were encouraged to forgo spending altogether, or to shop at Black-owned businesses if they needed to buy something. Maxwell compared the movement to the historic 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott in which Black residents of Montgomery, Alabama refused to ride the buses for more than a year until they were allowed to sit wherever they wanted. With BlackOut Tuesday, the objective was to get the attention of politicians and businesses to address issues such as equity in policing and the wage gap between white workers and employees of color. “The purpose was to show how much we spend in the economy,” said Maxwell, a community organizer. “It’s kind of like when we boycotted on the buses, to show that we’re a part of that system and we spend money there and we deserve equal treatment.”)

— Duckworth interviewed by Biden team for VP slot – Annie Linskey (DIERSEN: During 2006, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shouted at Roskam that my serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor, the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, and an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member was going to cause him to lose to Duckworth. During 2018, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes shouted at Roskam that my serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor was going to cause him to lose to Casten.

I should write a book about those who have focused on making me pay reparations, that is, making me pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion, that is, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

FEDERAL NEWS NETWORK
— Implementing EO to change federal hiring practices – Tom Temin (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. In 1966, when I was 16 years old, the Democrats who ran the Post Office would not have hired me if I had not earned a high school diploma in 1966. In 1971, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have hired me if I had not had earned a job-related bachelor’s degree (in management) in 1970. In 1972, 1973, and 1974, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have promoted me if I had not been taking job-related (business) graduate courses. In 1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me if I had not earned a job-related master’s degree (in business) in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and almost completed the requirements for my second job-related (in accounting) master’s degree. In 1986, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have promoted me if I had not completed the requirements for my a second job-related (accounting) master’s degree in 1980, passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and became a licensed CPA in 1981. The Democrats who ran GAO would have succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” sooner than they did if I had not become a Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, a Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, a Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, and a Forensic Accountant in 1990 and if I had not completed the requirements for my third job-related (finance) master’s degree in 1997.)
https://federalnewsnetwork.com/hiring-retention/2020/07/implementing-eo-to-change-federal-hiring-practices/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Last month, the White House issued an executive order, 13-392, to curb what President Trump believes is over-reliance on credentials in federal hiring. And not enough emphasis on skills and merit. As is often the case, it’s up to the Office of Personnel Management to figure out how to implement the order.)
