CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Biden immigration plan opposed by GOP, conservative groups. Several pro-immigration groups, meanwhile, said they would press Biden to go even further and take steps such as an immediate moratorium on deportations, detentions and new arrests. – AP
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/1/19/22239640/biden-immigration-plan-opposed-by-gop-conservative-groups
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s a mass amnesty for almost the entire population of illegal immigrants living in the United States — people who broke our laws to get here and stay here,” said Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He added, “A mass amnesty with no safeguards and no strings attached is a nonstarter.” “There are many issues I think we can work cooperatively with President-elect Biden, but a blanket amnesty for people who are here unlawfully isn’t going to be one of them,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who is often a central player in Senate immigration battles. That view was shared by Mark Krikorian, executive director of the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, which favors curbing immigration. “Past proposals at least accepted the concept of turning off the faucet and mopping up the overflow. This is nothing but mopping up and letting the faucet continue to run,” Krikorian said. The top lobbyist for NumbersUSA, which also wants to limit immigration, agreed that without changes, the measure seemed destined to receive little if any GOP support. “They’re just going straight-up amnesty,” said the lobbyist, Rosemary Jenks. She said that made the measure likely to fail in the Senate, where it would need at least 10 Republicans to join all 50 Democrats to overcome a filibuster that would kill the measure.)

Ever-increasingly, churches talk and act like they are arms of the Democrat, Libertarian, and/or Green parties.

— Shifting demographics hurt local GOP registration – John Orona (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. What makes it hard for you to be optimistic about the future? For me, it is the ever-increasing invasion of hypocritical hate-filled Republican-hating Republican-haters who hypocritically move in to DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton to hypocritically take advantage of the prosperity and safety that Republicans created there. I should write a book about such hypocritical hate-filled Republican-hating hypocritical home buyers in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)
https://www.theunion.com/news/shifting-demographics-hurt-local-gop-registration/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The biggest demographic factor is that people from the Bay Area and other coastal counties are purchasing primary or secondary homes in Nevada County, and they take their political identity with them when they vote here,” Hren said in an email. According to Department of Finance data, between 2014 and 2018 more Nevada County residents moved to Sacramento and El Dorado counties, while the most transplants to Nevada County came from Placer and Alameda counties. “These people realize that their vote in the Bay Area will not make a difference, as most local Democrats there win their races,” Hren said. “Here it’s a different story.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In essence, the EEOC said employers can require that employees get inoculated as a condition of going to work, unless an employee declines because of a disability or a sincerely held religious belief. In such cases, the employer must offer a reasonable accommodation to the employee, such as working remotely, as long as the accommodation doesn’t cause “undue hardship” for the employer. If there is no accommodation possible, then an employer may prohibit the employee from entering the premises but not necessarily fire the worker. The employer must see if the employee has any other rights under federal or local laws, including the ability to take unpaid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, before an employer can exclude a worker from the physical worksite, the employer must determine if the unvaccinated employee presents a significant risk in harm to health or safety that cannot be eliminated or reduced through reasonable accommodations.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— MARCH 3, 2016 FLASHBACK: Storage Units, Now With Space to Cook, Relax and Entertain Traditional industrial park-style storage facilities are giving way to customized spaces with kitchens, reclaimed wood and stylish seating areas. – Candace Jackson (DIERSEN: I am in the process of buying the 20X40 unit that served as Mr. Garrison’s indoor basketball court.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/storage-units-now-with-space-to-cook-relax-and-entertain-1457026958
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shane Garrison, a 46-year-old executive at a commercial real-estate company, purchased a 3,000-square-foot storage unit in Iron Gate Motor Condos in Naperville, Ill., last May, spending roughly $400,000 to buy and build out the three-story space. He added an indoor basketball court, kitchen, car lift, two bathrooms and arcade games. Mr. Garrison also worked with an architect to design his place with a 30-foot-high reclaimed barn wood wall, polished concrete floors and an iron staircase. There is even a deck for outdoor grilling. The idea was to build a place where his wife and their 7-year-old and 5-year-old children could hang out with him while he tinkered with his​cars, a diverse collection he rotates through the space that includes a 1978 Porsche 930 and a Chevrolet Chevelle. “If you’re a car guy, you’d like somewhere to put them, and then you think about that and your family,” he says. “You don’t want it to be binary where you’re just there and the kids are at home.” For others, it’s more about creating the ultimate man cave. “While everyone checks their egos at the door, these guys really one up each other as far as finishing out their man caves,” says Mark Karolich, a Naperville, Ill. accountant who keeps four of his Porsches in his Iron Gate unit. Purchased for $134,000 and finished for another $50,000 to $60,000, it includes a reclaimed wood wall, a mural of the Breckenridge Gate, a kitchenette and a stone-tile bathroom.

Of course, if the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of Trump, Democrats would have a) officially declared their Second Civil War on America and c) ramped up their efforts to destroy America.)

https://dailycaller.com/2020/12/10/mike-lee-senate-republicans-big-tech-section-230-censorship/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee emerged as a leading voice against Big Tech by introducing a bill to hold platforms accountable for viewpoint censorship and supporting a separate bill to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Lee introduced the Promoting Responsibility Over Moderation In the Social Media Environment Act (S.4975) Tuesday in the Senate. The bill — colloquially called the PROMISE Act — would require social media platforms to disclose their content moderation policies to users and would be barred from moderating certain types of content, according to a press release. “The billionaires who own our nation’s Big Tech companies have every right to be partisan political actors,” Lee said in a statement. “What they don’t have a right to do is make promises to consumers that they will provide unbiased platforms and then discriminate against conservatives on those same platforms.” Republican lawmakers have expressed concern that Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook and Google are using their online platforms to blacklist or censor conservative viewpoints.)

How strongly do Biden voters want Biden to use the federal government to get rid of those who voted for Trump in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, in your county, in Illinois, and in America? 269 voted for Biden in my precinct while only 157 voted for Trump. 39,530 voted for Biden in Milton Township while only 26,080 voted for Trump. 281,222 voted for Biden in DuPage County while only 193,611 voted for Trump.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 2. How does bias creep in? In any number of ways: People making a program can introduce biases, or the algorithms can “learn” bad behavior from training data before launch or from users afterward, causing results to warp over time. Software engineers can inadvertently discriminate against people. Facebook was embarrassed in 2015 when some Native Americans were blocked from signing up for accounts because their names — including Lance Browneyes and Dana Lone Hill — were judged fake. And Amazon.com Inc. ran into problems when an AI system it was testing to screen job applicants “taught” itself to weed out women. In other cases, algorithms may have been trained on too narrow a slice of reality.)

He also criticized Georgia for refusing to expand Medicaid and increase the minimum wage. . . He then added, in reference to the 2016 presidential election: “No matter what happens next month, the more than a third of the nation that would go along with this is reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness on full display this season.”)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201201/recount-after-75-vote-difference-doesnt-stop-dupage-auditors-office-from-changing-hands
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new DuPage County auditor took office Tuesday for the first time in 12 years, but his election opponent says the historically close race isn’t over yet. Downers Grove Democrat William “Bill” White assumed the role as the county’s top financial watchdog even as his predecessor, Bob Grogan, prepares for “double overtime” in one of the tightest contests in the suburbs. Grogan has asked for a partial recount of the election results after coming up just 75 votes shy of victory out of more than 466,000 ballots cast. Grogan, a Downers Grove Republican who held the position for three terms, filed for a discovery recount in up to 25% of the precincts countywide. Wheaton Republican Tim Whelan also has requested a partial recount after falling short in his reelection bid for a seat on the forest preserve district board. Official results from last month’s election show Democratic challenger Jeff Gahris defeating Whelan by 718 votes. The recount proceedings are set to begin at 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 7, in the county administration building in Wheaton. Both Grogan and Whelan are represented by attorney Phillip Luetkehans. The exploratory process leaves some uncertainty over races that add to historic gains for Democrats in DuPage. In a partial recount, the county clerk’s office will make election materials available for scrutiny to help candidates determine if there are enough voter discrepancies to seek a court order for a complete recount. Pat Bond, the attorney for the county clerk’s office, said county election officials have had roughly 30 discovery recounts over the past 20 years, but none resulted in a full recount. Election authorities anticipate the partial recounts could be done by Wednesday, Dec. 9, at the earliest, Bond said. Grogan already has put out an appeal for donations if he should decide to forge ahead with a legal challenge. “I have confidence that assuming that we find a critical mass of differences that we’ll be able to fund the full recount if we can get there past the judge,” Grogan said. He’s cautiously hopeful as he prepares for an examination of ballots next week. “Auditors know what to look for, but they don’t know what the results are of what they look for until they’ve done it,” Grogan said Tuesday. “So I’m objective. I have an open mind. I am hopeful, but honestly, mistakes go both directions.”)

Rather than help the lawsuit succeed, virtually all the members of the class in GAO’s Chicago office “cut deals” with my GAO superiors.

https://www.wglt.org/post/ex-spokesperson-sues-mclean-county-alleging-race-discrimination#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Dion McNeal was the county’s communications specialist and one of the most public voices in its initial COVID-19 response last spring. McNeal, who is Black, was involved in a dispute over a county press release and social media post in June—just after the killing of George Floyd—that linked the trauma of racism and police brutality with public health. McNeal says that put him at odds with some county officials. He then went to the media with his concerns, in which he pointed to a lack of Black leadership in the county’s health department. He says he was fired a few days later. . .So on June 10, McNeal sent out the original version of the press release. The next day, McNeal was told he would have multiple job duties removed, according to the lawsuit. McNeal says he faced “severe adverse employment actions,” in contrast with a white co-worker who also sent a letter to the media June 19 raising concerns about the lack of diversity in the health department. That white co-worker was treated more favorably, the lawsuit claims. McNeal also claims sex discrimination. McNeal has identified himself as a “proud healthy Black queer HIV positive man.” “Similarly situated female employees … did not suffer the same adverse employment action McNeal did and, therefore, were treated more favorably,” his lawsuit reads. McNeal’s accusation of unlawful retaliation is based on how the county and health department reacted to him going public in his June 19 statement. McNeal claims he was “speaking as a public citizen on a matter of public concern and was engaged in activity protected by First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.” “McNeal suffered several adverse actions and deprivations likely to deter his protected activity, including without limitation, increased job scrutiny, placement on administrative leave, placement on a performance improvement plan, and termination of employment,” the lawsuit reads. “McNeal’s legally protected activity was at least a motivating factor in the defendants’ decision to impose the deprivations.”)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/12/01/trump-repeal-section-230-ndaa/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Section 230 is a broad, decades-old federal law that spares a wide array of sites and services from being held liable for the content posted by their users — and, in the process, the decisions about the posts, photos and videos that tech companies take down or leave online. It is considered one of the Web’s foundational laws, crafted in large part to facilitate free expression digitally. Many lawmakers — Democrats and Republicans — increasingly have come to question whether the protections are outdated, conferring legal immunity on tech giants at a time when they have failed to crack down on hate speech, election disinformation and other harmful content online. But Trump and his Republican allies have seized on the debate to advance their arguments that Facebook, Google, Twitter and others should be penalized for exhibiting systemic political bias against conservatives — a charge for which they have provided scant evidence, and one that tech giants long have denied.)

MARKET WATCH
— You’re probably not ready to retire — psychologically Your emotional ‘glide path’ is as important as your financial plan – Jonathan Burton (DIERSEN: I should write a book about being forced to retire early. If you are a White male who is forced to retire early, your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes will viciously use that against you. They will hint/imply/argue/shout that you were forced to retire early because you are a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. The more of the following you are, that more that you will be demonized, denigrated, and condemned: Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, non-poor, gun owner, former federal employee, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
