NEW YORK TIMES
— ‘Incomprehensible’ Numbers: How Republicans Are Losing New York Suburbs In one county, Democrats grew by more than 150,000, while the number of Republicans dropped by more than 30,000. – Vivian Wang (DIERSEN: If current trends hold, the many Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO leaders of the Republican Party will officially banish individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/13/nyregion/peter-king-long-island-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats now outnumber Republicans on Long Island, a once unthinkable development in a traditional conservative stronghold where voters backed every Republican presidential candidate, bar two, from 1900 to 1988. . .The shift mirrors a nationwide trend of historically moderate or conservative suburban voters now slowly tipping left. Just last week, those voters helped flip the Virginia statehouse, ousted the last Republicans in a Philadelphia-area County Council and appear to have unseated the Republican governor of Kentucky. The pattern, if it holds, could prove decisive not only for the 2020 presidential election, but also for the makeup of each party’s base for decades.)
— A Black Paratrooper’s First Veterans Day, and His Last A long struggle to remove the stigma of a questionable Army discharge comes to a close. – Michael Wilson (DIERSEN: Constructively, my Democrat GAO superiors gave me a dishonorable discharge in 1997 when I was 49 years old when they forced me to take they early retirement “offer.”)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/12/nyregion/veterans-death-military-benefits.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He made his way to Brooklyn, still carrying the stigma of his discharge. He said he had tried to commit suicide three times. “I struggled with depression, alcohol abuse and the shame of my dishonorable discharge,” he wrote. He eventually pulled himself up and started over, graduating from Adelphi University and going on to earn a master’s degree. “I found stability,” he wrote, “and dedicated my life to helping others.”)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County Board lifts 10-year ban, votes to allow video gaming in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-reverses-ban-video-gaming-st-1113-20191113-fr4ar6wz4zcixeaem5yaoybxne-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Commissioner Tim Elliott, R-Glen Ellyn, said the downside is people have to lose money at the machines in order for the county to receive any money in video gambling taxes. “The revenue we would receive as a county is a fraction of what our residents would lose,” Elliot said, estimating gamers would have to lose a total of $5.5 million for the county to take in $276,000. “That’s not economic development. That is the opposite of economic development.” . . . Board member Pete DiCianni, R-Elmhurst, requested the vote be tabled so that people would have a chance to weigh in, but other commissioners countered that the item was on the agenda and the public had notice of the meeting. DiCianni, who also suggested letting voters decide if the ban should be lifted, said allowing video gambling in unincorporated areas would put more pressure on municipalities that have banned it.)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County lifts ban on video gambling – Robert Sanchez
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191112/dupage-county-lifts-ban-on-video-gambling
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Still, six Republican board members voted against the repeal: Grant Eckhoff of Wheaton, Tim Elliott of Glen Ellyn, Pete DiCianni of Elmhurst, Sean Noonan of Elmhurst, Jim Healy of Naperville and Robert Larsen of Wheaton. Larsen said he has seen the negative impacts of gambling. And while lifting the ban will generate revenue for the county, he said, “not all revenue is good revenue.” “I don’t think it’s right for DuPage County,” he said. Elliott said he’s concerned that lifting the ban will create problems for businesses in municipalities that prohibit video gambling. “The two largest municipalities in my district — Wheaton and Glen Ellyn — have banned video gaming,” Elliott said. “What are you going to do to them when you allow video gaming in every unincorporated area that borders them?”)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with my Democrat superiors in the federal government.) 
https://www.dailycommercial.com/opinion/20191110/from-right-deep-state-exists-and-threatens-our-republic
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s taken the better part of the last three years to finally convince me that there is a “deep state” and that its top priority is to get rid of Donald Trump before he has the chance to get re-elected. For years I have been concerned about entrenched government bureaucrats who serve far beyond the elected officials they supposedly serve. Some of these entrenched government workers have reached a point of concern have become known as the “deep state operatives.” Oxford Dictionaries defines “deep state” as follows: A body of people, typically members of the government agencies or the military, believed to be involved in the secret manipulation of control of government policy. The “deep state” and its policy of allowing extremist ideologies to flourish may be the actual issues of concern. Because a federal employee faces a greater chance of dying on the job over getting fired, it has embolden more and more federal employees to undermine elected officials if their views differ with the leaders we have elected. Had Hillary Clinton been elected instead President Trump, we may have never known just have pervasive the “deep state” had become.)

https://kprcradio.iheart.com/content/2019-11-08-okay-boomer-lawyer-up/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s Millennials vs. Boomers. A young, female New Zealand lawmaker called out an aging, outspoken associate with an offside comment, “Okay, boomer,” and the reverberations are still being felt. She didn’t invent the online meme, but Cloe Swarbrick fired the shot heard round the world. The massive generation of Millennials, essentially people in their 20’s and 30’s, are beginning to give louder voice to their frustrations about the world they’re inheriting. The massive generation they’re targeting, Boomers, essentially everyone 55 and over, were the people who invented the concept of a Generation Gap. They did it when they were the age of today’s Millennials. Houston psychotherapist Dr. Lawrence Abrams says inner-generational warfare is just par for the course. “It gives you someone to get mad at, and we all need someone to get mad at sometimes,” he suggests. The older generation, however, has the law on their side when it comes to verbalized put downs, according to Cozen O’Conner attorney Joseph Sirbak. “’The Age Discrimination in Employment Act’ prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, and that covers people over 40, so by definition anyone who is a Boomer is going to be legally protected.” People under the age of 40 have no such legal protections. Okay, Millennial?)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— California’s Board Diversity Tax A study finds that a director mandate cost companies $60 billion. – Editorial (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government in Chicagoland for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat Chicagoland Democrats a) to hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and b) to make way for them by getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.
https://www.wsj.com/articles/californias-board-diversity-tax-11573256678
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats in California work hard to punish businesses and sometimes they succeed without trying. Consider a 2018 law that imposes gender quotas for boards of public companies based in the state, which a new study finds effectively destroyed $60 billion in wealth over night. Last September the state enacted a law requiring all public companies headquartered in California to have at least one female director by the end of 2019 and two by the end of 2021. Democrats claimed that increasing board diversity would benefit corporations. Investors supposedly needed politicians to tell them what was in their best financial interest.)

For me, it came from what I had earned and saved a) working for IRS for 15 months in 1971 and 1972 and b) working for Firestone Stores full-time for 7 months and part-time for 18 months 1970-1972. That money also enabled me to buy a new Corvette in 1971 and to pay tuition for graduate business courses at Loyola.)

— Tucker Carlson rejects concerns about whistleblower’s safety: ‘Live my life for a week’ (DIERSEN: Like Carlson, I give my “opinions everyday” in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Those who reject my opinions do everything that they can a) to stop me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. I should write a book about those who reject my opinions.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=79126
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tucker Carlson rejected concerns about the wellbeing of the intelligence community whistleblower that sparked impeachment proceedings, arguing during his Fox News show Wednesday that his own safety is at greater risk. Mr. Carlson made the comparison while complaining during his primetime opinion program about recent efforts to protect the whistleblower by keeping his or her name under wraps. “The hyenas on television are jumping up and down hyperventilating, telling people, ‘How dare you want to know the identity, it could endanger that person.’ Which, frankly, [is] a little insulting to those of us who give our opinions everyday, kind of out there,” he said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “His life’s in danger? Oh spare me. Live my life for a week,” Mr. Carlson said later during the episode.)
— Meet Safiya Khalid, elected to Lewiston Maine city council (DIERSEN: What if voters in Wheaton’s West District had voted to fill the recent Wheaton West District City Council vacancy? I would have been one of the ten candidates. The following voters in Wheaton’s West District would NOT have voted for me: those who are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, anti-federal retirees, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=79083
(FROM THE ARTICLE: During a post-election speech at the Agora Grand Event Center on Tuesday, Safiya Khalid said she has always been told she holds many “firsts” in her family — the first to graduate high school, the first to graduate from college. On Tuesday, she also added a first for the city, becoming Lewiston’s first Somali-American to serve on the City Council. At 23, she’s also the youngest. On Wednesday morning, just a few hours after she defeated fellow Democrat Walter “Ed” Hill with nearly 70% of the vote, news outlets were lining up to interview her. Khalid said she had been contacted by NPR and CNN, among others. The Washington Post interviewed her Tuesday night, weighing in on a race marked by her historic win, the racism she faced and harassment allegations against members of her campaign. Khalid said early Wednesday that she was still “in shock” from the victory, as well as the amount of national attention she’s receiving. “Lewiston is out there,” she said. Khalid, with her mother and two younger brothers, fled Somalia at the age of 7, arriving first in New Jersey before relocating to Lewiston. For the Somali community, especially immigrants who began settling in Lewiston in the early 2000s, Khalid’s election is a significant step. Fowsia Musse, who works with Healthy Androscoggin and Maine Community Integration, came to the United States in 1995 and was among the first Somali refugees to settle in Lewiston. The day after Tuesday’s election, Musse said “words cannot describe how happy I am for the representation we are now being given” in city government. “I’m very happy for Safiya’s victory in this electoral process,” she said in an email. “Safiya has worked relentlessly hard to earn this. I want to congratulate the other winners, and thank them for the fair fight. Together we can all move forward as a united Maine. Best wishes to all the candidates!” Jordy Dushime, founder of the African Youth Alliance and recent graduate of Lewiston High School said Wednesday that it’s “revolutionary that a minority and especially an immigrant/refugee is able to take place in the decision making of Lewiston.” Dushime, 19, came to Lewiston from Burundi three years ago, and founded the African Youth Alliance as an after-school resource for teenagers. “As a black refugee woman, she is able to inspire us, the future generations to strive to participate in our communities and our beloved state,” he said. Rilwan Osman, executive director of Maine Immigrant & Refugee Services, said Wednesday that Khalid’s win marked “a huge change for our community.”)

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/11/07/exclusive-ted-cruz-big-tech-is-a-growing-threat-to-our-democracy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Texas senator said that big tech’s censorship serves as a fundamental threat to America’s democratic system of government by stifling free speech on the Internet. “Big tech’s power, bias, and censorship is profoundly dangerous, and it is a growing threat to our democracy,” Cruz said. “As chairman of the Constitution subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee, I have chaired multiple hearings focused on big tech bias and censorship. We’ve heard witness after witness testify; we’ve seen the evidence pile up of big tech silencing voices with which it disagrees. Shadow banning conservatives, shadow banning anyone who does not follow the political orthodoxy of a handful of big tech Silicon Valley billionaires.” “What is new is the ability of big tech to silently disappear the voices of those with which they disagree and simultaneously and equally silently amplify the voices with which they agree, and there’s no transparency, there’s no accountability,” he added. Cruz also warned that Google’s biased search algorithm could interfere in the 2020 elections. Professor Robert Epstein told the senator during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in July that Google could manipulate millions of voters into voting for Democrats during the 2020 election using their biased search engine.)

DAILY HERALD
— Panel: Legal pot won’t affect workplace impairment policies – Richard Klicki (DIERSEN: Of course, pot pushers will file lawsuits for stoners, that is, for impaired employees, against employers. Pot pushers will argue that stoners, that is, impaired employees, have the “right” to be stoned. I should write a book about my GAO superiors and supervisors and their “three-martini lunches.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-martini_lunch They focused on destroying their employees like me who opposed their “three-martini lunches.”) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20191106/panel-legal-pot-wont-affect-workplace-impairment-policies
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Though the new law decriminalizes casual use of marijuana, the panel noted employers can still maintain policies that prohibit use of marijuana or other substances to maintain job and workplace safety, and companies that deal with federal contracts can still adopt no-tolerance policies since the federal government classifies marijuana as a top-level narcotic. Attorney Ross Molho, a partner with Clingen Callow & McLean LLC in Lisle, stressed that while employers cannot restrict marijuana use outside of work, they still have the right to maintain safe workplaces, which includes establishing policies that prohibit impairment at work. “Employees have the right to use this substance, but they don’t have the right to come to work impaired from this substance,” Molho said. “In some sense, we need to think about it like tobacco or alcohol.”)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/notable-quotable-twitters-political-ad-ban-11572908984
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why does being a highly visible CEO mean one has “earned” more political influence than Walmart, the AFL-CIO, or any other entity that seeks to promote its political ideas? Dorsey spent his cash to start Twitter. They want to spend theirs to advertise on Twitter. How does this new policy “level the playing field?” . . .Twitter will ban not just candidate ads, but “issue ads,” because they “present a way to circumvent.” Does this mean that an ad promoting a documentary warning about (or dismissive of) climate change should be banned? How about an ad promoting a magazine profile of a candidate? Does a Gillette commercial lecturing men on the dangers of “toxic masculinity” qualify as an issue ad?)

And we know what’s happening,” Barrett said at a brief City Hall news conference. “Everybody knows what’s happening.

Under state law, local party leaders have the right to fill legislative vacancies. Unlike other states, no special elections are held. Because Hutchinson is a Democrat, her party will choose a successor. When asked about it, a local Democratic Party leader revealed there were four applicants for the position but declined to identify them. I’m told Hutchinson’s last day is Sunday. After she resigns, the state party has 30 days to appoint a replacement. Both Democrats and Republicans typically cloak the entire appointment process in secrecy. However, Kankakee County Democratic Chairman John Willard said his party will hold a public meeting, although constituents will be barred from asking questions of candidates. I’m glad a public meeting is planned, but I think candidates should field questions from prospective constituents — something like the interview process for presidential candidates at Kankakee Community College. Why can’t we hold special elections when legislators resign? Both Democrats and Republicans warn that such elections cost taxpayers a lot, while private appointment processes cost practically nothing. That’s an easy argument for them to make because they’re the ones filling vacancies. But it could be argued the costs of special elections are worth the benefits to democracy. Most vacancies occur when legislators resign. The most understandable reason is health. But many others quit because they find higher-paying jobs, often as lobbyists. Hutchinson is leaving to take a $220,000-a-year job in Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration. For years, I have suspected that so many legislators resign in Illinois because party insiders get to appoint replacements. It would be harder to quit mid-term if they knew that taxpayers would foot the bill for a special election. I decided to see how Illinois compares against Iowa, which holds special elections when vacancies occur. I checked on how members of each state’s senate got into office in the first place.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— HARDCOPY LETTER TITLE: Mayor Lightfoot, stop scorning Trump – Tim Schneider, Illinois Republican Party chairman, Chicago (DIERSEN: This letter to the editor, and others like it, should be in the inbox of a) every Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain in Illinois, b) every Republican Party leader in Illinois, c) every Republican elected official in Illinois, etc. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails continue to fill the tremendous Republican communication void in Illinois.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/letters/ct-letters-vp-110119-20191031-3bddlghmdbdtjdgjpzgqx27e3u-story.html
(FROM THE LETTER TO THE EDITOR: President Donald Trump came to Chicago on Monday and told the truth about our dysfunctional government — and Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the news media got the vapors, gasping that he insulted Chicago and its wonderful citizens. Fake news — again! I was with President Trump over lunch, and listened to his candid and often very humorous assessment of challenges and opportunities for our nation. He demonstrated a grasp of world events that was remarkable, and he laid out his strategy and assessments in plain, direct language. He started with Chicago, “this beautiful place that’s run so poorly.” He recounted his call to the mayor and offer to work together — and shrugged at the silence since. He expressed heartbreak at the ongoing violence in too many neighborhoods, pointing out that it should be inexcusable for some of us not to be better protected by our government. He pointed out how he supported the members of the Chicago Police Department as he mocked the showboating by police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. I witnessed firsthand his rapport with rank-and-file officers and their support for this president. Everything he said reflected a concern for the people of Chicago and a love of this great city, even as he scorned weak leadership. Mere days after the superintendent was found asleep in his car at a stop sign, must we all extol him despite the city’s high crime rate and his evident failures of leadership? Chicago is a wonderful city, but the people of the city and all the amenities it offers, are separate and distinct from our city government. Chicago is great, but our lousy government drags it down. For example, during CTU’s 10-plus-day strike, students languished, once-in-lifetime sporting experiences were missed, as teachers danced to Michael Jackson tunes. And over what? Mayor Lightfoot and the functionally insolvent Chicago Public Schools offered teachers $100,000, along with Cadillac pension and health benefits, for nine months of work each year — as an opening bid! There’s nothing here that should be criticized? So, please give it a rest, Mayor Lightfoot: You should embrace the Trump administration and seek help for our problems. Instead of looking for ways to fight the president, why not sit with him and share ideas on how to improve our home? If by working together you improve or save one life, then you’ve made our great city even better.)

— Make These Tax Moves for 2019 Before It’s Too Late Looking to lower your tax bill? Here are a dozen steps to take as the end of the year approaches. – Laura Saunders (DIERSEN: Trump should increase the $10,000 SALT cap to $20,000 for married filing jointly because the SALT cap discourages marriage and homeownership.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The most common itemized deductions are for state and local taxes (SALT), charitable donations and mortgage interest. Now that Congress has limited the SALT deduction to $10,000 per return both for single and married joint filers, it’s often easier for singles than couples to benefit from itemizing. For example, a married couple who deducts the limit of $10,000 of SALT needs more than $14,400 of other deductions to benefit from itemizing for 2019, because their standard deduction is $24,400. But a single filer who deducts $10,000 of SALT only needs other write-offs totaling more than $2,200, because his standard deduction is $12,200.)
