TOWNHALL
— Who Watches the Media Watchdogs? – Horace Cooper
(DIERSEN: GAO Is the most important government watchdog. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $102,188-$132,645/year. I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned my GAO employment the most. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican. 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/or Illinois. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, BLM, LGBTQ, 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, religious discrimination, and/or national origin discrimination.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/horacecooper/2021/04/10/who-watches-the-media-watchdogs-n2587692
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether or not the High Court chooses to engage, there is a real question of how democracy thrives in a media environment where leftists in the media make scurrilous claims about conservatives and the same media simply ignores legitimate charges against their progressive allies. Our founders assumed that the media would take its role as watchdog seriously, not become a cheerleader for one side over the other. Can a constitutional protection endure when it only protects one side of the debate?)

(DIERSEN: Where did your down payment come from? I bought a new town home in University Park September 1972 when I was 24 years old. The down payment came from what I had earned a) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights full-time August 1970-March 1971 and part-time since March 1971 and b) working for IRS in Chicago and then in Harvey since June 1971. That money also enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in October 1971 and to pay tuition and books for graduate business courses at Loyola starting in January 1972. I had graduated debt-free from NIU August 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. The money for tuition, books, and room and board came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office November 1966-September 1969. I bought a studio condo in downtown Chicago in 1974 and a one bedroom condo in downtown Chicago in 1976. The down payments came from what I earned working for IRS. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978. The down payment came from what she had earned working for the FBI and U.S. League of Savings Institutions (League). We had a new home built in Wheaton in 1984. The down payment came from the equity that we had in our home and from what I earned working for GAO and from what my wife earned working for the League.)

(DIERSEN: I predict that after the April 6, 2021 election, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters will a) blame Trump for all the defeats that Republican candidates suffered and b) do everything that they can to drive those who voted for Trump out of the Republican Party. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump; 26,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump; 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump; and 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. I predict that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters will force Republican township and county party organization officers to recruit hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters to run for Republican Precinct Committeeman in each of the precincts in their township and/or county. I predict that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters will do everything that they can to recruit hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters to run for all the offices in the March 15, 2022 Republican primary in Illinois. I predict that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters will do everything that they can to get all the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, Republican county party organizations, and Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump to resign. I predict that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters will do even more a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) to stop everyone from reading those newsletters.)

— Vaccine passports are latest flash point in COVID politics – MARK SCOLFORO
(DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want vaccine passports to be required so that they can use that requirement to more rapidly and more viciously destroy those who are not vaccinated.)
https://apnews.com/article/travel-new-york-data-privacy-immunizations-coronavirus-pandemic-f1c7623849d5458bcda3aed67f4c3d90
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The argument over whether passports are a sensible response to the pandemic or governmental overreach echoes the bitter disputes over the past year about masks, shutdown orders and even the vaccines themselves. . .But lawmakers around the country are already taking a stand against the idea. GOP senators in Pennsylvania are drawing up legislation that would prohibit vaccine passports, also known as health certificates or travel passes, from being used to bar people from routine activities. “We have constitutional rights and health privacy laws for a reason,” said Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Republican. “They should not cease to exist in a time of crisis. These passports may start with COVID-19, but where will they end?” Benninghoff said this week his concern was “using taxpayer money to generate a system that will now be, possibly, in the hands of mega-tech organizations who’ve already had problems with getting hacked and security issues.”)

https://www.aol.com/news/democrats-shocked-receiving-aoc-campaign-212616317.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘DCCC made clear that they will blacklist any org that helps progressive candidates like me,’ said AOC. Several House Democrats facing midterm campaigns in 2022 received a surprise in the form of $5,000 from New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The contributions were sent in an effort to help the House majority stay ahead of a tough upcoming election cycle without contributing directly to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee — which AOC has been publicly against. She created a political action committee (PAC) to raise money for progressive primary candidates herself after she criticized DCCC policies.)

https://www.reviewjournal.com/opinion/opinion-columns/victor-davis-hanson/victor-davis-hanson-the-10-radical-new-rules-that-are-changing-america-2321809/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much. . .2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore. Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”. . .3) Racialism is now acceptable. We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily — if at all — by an American commonality. . .4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen. . .5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children. . .6) Hypocrisy is passe. Virtue-signaling is alive. . .7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it. . .8) McCarthyism is good. Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence. . .9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge. . .10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity. Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican, and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter are the new gospels.)

— Under federal scrutiny, Madigan, Solis collecting lucrative government pensions. The former speaker just got his first check amid an ongoing investigation. The ex-alderman has gotten nearly $170K since resigning. Pensions of other pols facing probes are uncertain. – Tim Novak (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me the most because I have had since I was 49 years old in 1997 a) an inflation-adjusted Civil Service Retirement System pension (currently, $4,572/month $54,864/year) and b) a 72% health, dental, and vision insurance federal subsidy. I would focus on those who have demonstrated their unbridled hatred the most against federal employees and against federal retirees. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years – almost 18 for GAO, 9 for IRS, and 3 for the Post Office. In my defense, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/4/2/22362398/michael-madigan-danny-solis-pensions-edward-acevedo-luis-arroyo-berrios-tobolski-zalewski
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Madigan, 78, lost the speaker’s post in a vote in January of his Democratic colleagues in the House, then resigned from the House seat he held for 50 years and also stepped aside as chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party. He got his first pension check — for $7,093 — on March 24. Madigan’s annual pension is $85,117. It will increase 75% in July 2022, to $148,955. That huge increase is the result of two factors — an automatic 3% cost-of-living increase and 24 other increases of 3% each, one for each year he served once he reached his 55th birthday and 20 years of service. During his time as speaker, Madigan contributed $352,345 to the General Assembly Retirement Fund. He stands to recoup all of that in about three years.)

I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— The Real Five Laws of American Politics – John Green
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/03/the_real_five_laws_of_american_politics.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The American Political Science Association asserts that there are Five laws of politics. These are: Only a minority of citizens will ever vote, Incumbents always have an advantage, It’s rare for anyone to garner over 60% of the vote, Incumbents loose support during their term, and Parties tend to alternate in office. . .However, I believe you’ll find them much more predictive of American political behavior, and associated outcomes, than mere observations. Law 1 – Democrats accuse Republicans of doing that which they’ve already done. . .Law 2 – When it’s most critical, Republicans will never work as a team. . .Law 3 – Politicians assert that they are following the science, when their intent is to curtail personal freedoms. . .Law 4 – When the government offers to help, the best result is achieved by declining. . .Law 5 – When Politicians invest taxpayer money, the investors shouldn’t expect any return. . .To summarize: The next time a Democrat accuses a Republican of a scandal, start an investigation — of the Democrat. When Republicans say they’ll work together if we just give them a chance — start identifying primary challengers. Never give up God-given liberties in the name of science — which is never really settled. When the government says, “we’re here to help,” ask them to help by leaving. Finally, the next time a politician “invests” your money, recognize that it’s state-sponsored robbery — you’re not getting anything back.)

My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(DIERSEN: What helped you get your first mortgage? I bought a new town home in University Park September 1972 when I was 24 years old. The down payment came from what I had earned a) working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights full-time August 1970-March 1971 and part-time since March 1971 and b) working for IRS in Chicago and then Harvey since June 1971. That money also enabled me to buy a new 1972 Corvette in October 1971 and to pay tuition and books for graduate business courses at Loyola starting in January 1972. I had graduated debt-free from NIU August 1970 owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. The money for tuition, books, and room and board came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office November 1966-September 1969.)

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2021/04/01/obama-the-oppressor-n2587252
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Progressive leftists across the country are demanding that schools named after people who don’t pass their purity tests get new monikers. But in Waukegan, Illinois, they’re having a difficult time finding a suitable alternative. Two committees comprised of students, staff, and those in the community were tasked with renaming the Thomas Jefferson Middle School and the Daniel Webster Middle School, the first because he was a slave owner and the latter because he supported slavery. During a school board meeting on Tuesday to discuss some of the finalists for the Thomas Jefferson Middle School, immigration activists expressed their disapproval over one of the finalists: former President Barack Obama. . .So now, despite being America’s first black president, Obama is considered an “oppressor,” not woke enough to have a school named after him.)

— Breaking Down and Breaking Up? – J. Robert Smith
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2021/04/breaking_down_and_breaking_up_.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden woke up on third base and thinks he hit a triple. Someone has told the president that he was elected by the American people to fundamentally change our country. He thinks he has a mandate, and that all that stands between him and success is a few ornery Republicans in the Senate who refuse to get out of the way. Correction. Biden believes that the only thing standing between him and greatness are cranky senators who do not see the United States as systemically racist, who don’t believe in vastly expanding the welfare state, who think that individual creativity and achievement have built our great country and who are absolutely positive that Democrats are leading us down a very dangerous path.)

Kansas Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop was pulled over by the Topeka Police Department and the Kansas Highway Patrol after driving the wrong way on a Topeka highway. Callers to 911 initially reported seeing a white SUV driving west in the eastbound lanes of I-470 starting near Wanamaker Road and minutes later on I-70 around 12:45 a.m. It was the Kansas Highway Patrol that identified the driver of the SUV as Republican Kansas Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Biden’s Push for Electric Cars: $174 Billion, 10 Years and a Bit of Luck. The president is hoping to make electric vehicles more affordable to turn a niche product into one with mass appeal. – Niraj Chokshi
https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/business/biden-electric-vehicles-infrastructure.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Biden is a muscle-car guy — one of his most prized possessions is a 1967 Corvette that he got from his father. But he’s trying to make this an electric vehicle world. The $2 trillion infrastructure plan that he unveiled on Wednesday is aimed at tackling climate change in part by spending up to $174 billion to encourage Americans to switch to cars and trucks that run on electricity, not gasoline or diesel. That is a large investment but it might not be enough to push most Americans toward E.V.s. Despite rapid growth in recent years, electric vehicles remain a niche product, making up just 2 percent of the new car market and 1 percent of all cars, sport-utility vehicles, vans and pickup trucks on the road. They have been slow to take off in large part because they can cost up to $10,000 more than similar conventional cars and trucks. Charging E.V.s is also more difficult and slower than simply refilling the tank at far more prevalent gas stations.)

I would focus on those RINOs who have worked the hardest against me.)

Berlin said that’s a class X felony. “The people who are dying in these cases are victims,” said Berlin. “They’re drug users that the drug dealers take advantage of, and that’s why I believe it’s very important to hold these dealers accountable for their actions.” Berlin stressed the importance of separating the dealer from the user. He feels educating the public on the dangers of opioid abuse could help, especially for younger Illinois residents. “Also let them know what can happen if you’re selling these drugs to someone and they die as a result of using them,” said Berlin.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hinsdale officials have until April 15 to answer the complaints the U.S. Department of Justice and an agency providing housing for people recovering from addiction filed against the village, after a federal judge denied the village’s motions to dismiss the two lawsuits. Trinity Sober Living in July 2019 bought a house for up to 10 men to live and receive services as they recovered from alcoholism or drug addiction. Because the house, at 111 Grant St., was in a neighborhood zoned for single-family houses, the village claimed Trinity Sober Living violated its zoning code, which prohibits commercial uses in residential areas and limits the number of unrelated individuals who can live in a single-family home to three. In his March 18 opinion and order, U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman wrote he considers “the crux” of Trinity’s complaint to be Hinsdale failed to make reasonable accommodations to afford Trinity’s clients equal opportunity to enjoy the use of the house, per the Fair Housing Act. Trinity argued people recovering from addiction are protected by the American with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. Hinsdale’s zoning code allows licensed public or private agencies to operate group homes for up to six individuals in multifamily zoned area only with a special use permit.)

Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) discussed her recent push for more Asian representation in the White House after President Joe Biden vowed to create the “most diverse cabinet” in American history. Duckworth, who recently contested the Biden administration’s white cabinet appointees in the name of more “diversity,” said she was told by the White House that since Vice President Kamala Harris represents the Asian-American community, there is not a need for “any other Asians in the cabinet.” She went on to say the issue was worked out with the administration, and she is “pleased” there is now someone to help Asian-Americans navigate their issues.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But whether American consumers and businesses will accept the idea of providing proof before entry is not so obvious, she said. Just as many Americans have resisted wearing masks during the pandemic, some will reject the idea of showing a certificate to get into a ballgame or nightclub. Requiring vaccination “is not something we have done before within this country outside of school systems and hospitals,” said Fairchild, adding it would be incredibly useful from a public health standpoint and could eventually be expanded to cover flu and measles shots – if public opinion would allow it.)

— New Blacks in Government President Shirley Jones Reflects on Her Career During Women’s History Month. She was the first African American female to be appointed to the position of managing associate general counsel at the Government Accountability Office. – COURTNEY BUBLÉ
(DIERSEN: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, my Democrat superiors were very proud of their success in promoting Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion, that is, their success in getting rid of GAO employees like me who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and 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 GAO employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines. Did Jones make the aforesaid promotion deadlines?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I have spent my entire government career at the U.S. Government Accountability Office, almost 33 years now. Having started as a GS-7 summer legal associate in 1988, I have been living out my childhood dream of becoming a lawyer, a dream that ultimately grew into becoming a lawyer who would help the government be accountable to, and representative of, the people that it serves. And, I am very proud that in February of 2019, I was appointed by the U.S. comptroller general to the Senior Executive Service making me the first African American female in the agency’s now 100-year history to be appointed to the position of managing associate general counsel. As such, within GAO’s Office of General Counsel, I have management and leadership responsibility for three of the office’s legal teams focused on budget and appropriations law and congressional oversight. In addition, after 25 years of membership, I am proudly serving as the 15th National President of Blacks in Government, a position I assumed on January 1, 2021. And, through my work at GAO supporting the Congress and the American people and my work in [Blacks in Government] supporting greater diversity, equity and inclusion, I am indeed living out my childhood dream.)

— TRAGIC: Ford becomes second big KC manufacturer to idle work due to chip shortages – James Dornbrook
https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2021/03/26/ford-gm-chip-shortage-plants-idled.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ford isn’t the only local automobile manufacturer impacted by the chip shortage. General Motors Co. idled its Fairfax Assembly Plant on Feb. 8 and doesn’t expect to be able to bring it back online until mid-April. The plant employs 2,229 people and produces the Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac XT4. General Motors (NYSE: GM) expects the shortage will cause it to lose between $1.5 billion and $2 billion in profits in 2021. The chips, which require dust-free, specialized facilities to produce, are in short supply due to a huge spike in demand for electronics during the Covid-19 pandemic. Demand isn’t expected to slow anytime soon and getting new plants online costs billions of dollars and takes years of construction.)

— 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Sells For $2.69 Million At Mecum Glendale – BRETT HATFIELD
(DIERSEN: If I had not bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in 1966 (a poor man’s GTO), and instead, saved more money cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, and delivering mail, could have bought this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette L88 new in 1967.)
