Cook County is Democratic with a strong conservative base but those conservative Democrats won’t support anyone who associates with extremists – Ray Hanania (DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend their platform. According to Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, Independents, and RINOs, the more planks in the Republican Party platform that you support, the more that you are an extremist who should be gotten rid of once and for all.)

I should write a book about those who promote LGBTQ, their operatives, and their dupes.

A vaccine would produce the mother of all the emperor-wears-no-clothes moments. As with the Jackson/Sharpton cartoon, the elimination of racism would deprive Harris of liberals’ go-to excuse: Blame racism. Whether the disintegration of the Black family, urban crime, or support for public schools with high dropout rates and where those who remain in school often cannot read, write and compute at grade level, the left blames racism.)

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
— Donald Trump, affirmative action case – ERROL LOUIS (DIERSEN: What did your parents do to help you attend college? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. They provided me with room and board a) while I attended UIC 1966-1968, b) weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and c) the summer of 1969.)
https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-donald-trump-affirmative-action-case-20200827-3ll5gczdbne6jpipf5tkjvl7bm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s entirely fitting that the actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were sentenced to federal prison for their role in a college admissions scandal a day before the Washington Post published explosive audio recordings of Donald Trump’s older sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, describing how the future president of the United States cheated his way into college. “He went to Fordham for one year [actually, it was two] and then he got into University of Pennsylvania because he had somebody take the exams,” Barry, a retired federal judge, told her niece, Mary Trump, apparently unaware that the phone conversation was being recorded. “SATs or whatever. That’s what I believe. I even remember the name,” Barry said. According to Mary Trump, a friend of Trump’s named Joe Shapiro allegedly took the entrance exam for him. Both scandals make clear why affirmative action exists at top-flight universities: Rich insiders have been gaming admissions for generations, scheming to grab every unfair advantage they possibly can. The finishing touch is the sanctimonious hot air blowing from opponents of affirmative action and their determined, decades-long legal war to ban universities from allowing any advantage — actual, implied or even accidental — to bright young Black and Latino applicants.)

They did that because their top priority was hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and the aforesaid had a) far less job-related education, b) far fewer job-related professional certifications, and c) far fewer job-related licenses. 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.)

WTTW
— As the RNC Kicks Off, A Look at the GOP in Illinois – Amanda Vinicky
https://news.wttw.com/2020/08/24/rnc-kicks-look-gop-illinois
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Leading up to and during his term as Illinois’ 42nd governor, Bruce Rauner spent some of his personal fortune to help boost the Republican Party in the state. He’s not only no longer doing that, Rauner’s not even registered to vote in Illinois anymore; he’s set to cast his ballot from Florida. It’s a sign of the lurch the Illinois GOP is in: The Congressional delegation is split 13 Democrats to five Republicans, both of the state’s U.S. Senators are Democrats, there are no GOP constitutional officers and Republicans are in super-minorities in both the Illinois House and Senate. It wasn’t always this way; in Gov. Jim Edgar’s day it was Republicans who held the reins in Illinois. But, in another indication of the state party’s identity crisis, Edgar is voting for Democrat Joe Biden instead of President Donald Trump. “Donald Trump just hasn’t grown in office. I hoped when he got elected that maybe he might grow in office,” Edgar said. “He has been more of a disappointment than I thought he would be four years ago, and I was definitely bummed out when he won four years ago. But I’m just – I think this country has suffered a lot that going to take a while to take care of.” While Trump is popular in much of downstate Illinois, Edgar said the President hurts Republican candidates who run statewide, in the city of Chicago and in the suburbs. “If Trump would lose in November, then I think the Republican Party in Illinois statewide has a better chance of coming back,” Edgar said. “Republican candidates have to answer everything Trump says and does. … It hurts them in the suburbs and in the city.” Illinois Republican Party chairman Tim Schneider said on Monday that President Donald Trump can win the state. “Our side has the energy going this election. Who really cares about Sleepy Joe and Kamala Harris,” Schneider said. “People aren’t rushing out the door to vote for Joe Biden.” The “lawlessness in Chicago” will put Trump on the victory path, Schneider said. “With the rioting and the protests … peaceful protest is one thing but rioting and looting and then allowing the mayor of Chicago to barricade her four blocks around her and protect her with 150 police and then not protect our downtown and our Magnificent Mile and what about these terrible crimes and murders and shootings,” Schneider said. “That’s going on in Illinois everywhere with a Democratic mayor and a Democratic governor. We need to make Illinois Republican again so we can institute policies that are positive for the people of Illinois. Keep people from leaving our state. Or as I always say, we’re going to need a wall around Illinois, just to keep people in.” Meanwhile, Republican lawmakers say Democrats who control the General Assembly are stalling on beefing up ethics measures even as for the fourth time prosecutors filed federal charges against a member of the legislature and as powerful utility ComEd has admitted to a massive bribery scheme tied to Democratic Party of Illinois chairman and Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan.)

ABC7
— RNC 2020: Republicans to host scaled-back convention with some in-person events 2 Illinois delegates heading to Charlotte for roll call vote Monday – Craig Wall
https://abc7chicago.com/rnc-2020-republican-national-convention-kickoff/6384947/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Laura Pollastrini, a 14th District delegate, was looking forward to her first convention. “We went from North Carolina, then canceled North Carolina to Jacksonville, and then Jacksonville got canceled, and now we’re all sitting at home. So it’s really frustrating for us,” Pollastrini said. “Having it on the camera doesn’t hurt us. It actually, in a way, it expands our viewership, it expands how many people could actually be involved,” said George Pearson, Will County Republican chairman. Pearson is planning watch parties with supporters at the headquarters office in Crest Hill. Due to coronavirus concerns, only two Illinois delegates are actually going to Charlotte for the roll call vote on Monday where they will formally nominate the President. Testing, face coverings and social distancing will be required. Illinois Republican Party chairman Tim Schneider is one of delegates who will attend the convention. “The RNC sent out COVID tests to every member that’s attending the Charlotte convention. I had to test negative to go to Charlotte. I also have to do a self-test every day and go online and reflect all my symptoms every day,” Schneider said. Delegates also are not concerned with the polls, pointing to how wrong they were four years ago with Hillary Clinton and seeing a silent majority out there that will support the President. “Because there’s so much negativity that’s being put out by the media, that people aren’t going to, they’re not going to answer polls, neighbors aren’t going to talk to neighbors, they’re not going to tell who they’re going to be voting for, come this election,” said Lori Yokohama, a Republican delegate for Chicago’s 1st District. President Trump is reportedly very eager to make sure the Republican convention has a very different look and feel than the virtual DNC, with small crowds at some events. He’s even making plans to give his acceptance speech from the White House lawn.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: Illinois Republicans sense momentum against Democrats but uncertain how to deliver their message – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-illinois-delegates-republican-national-convention-20200824-5tgjwte2d5bo5axf6pcjkunxyq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For Roger Claar, who retired at the end of July as Bolingbrook’s mayor after a tenure he proudly touts as 33 years, eight months and seven days, the planned trip to Charlotte, North Carolina, was “going to be my big swan song” to politics. For the longtime member of Illinois’ GOP State Central Committee, it was to have been his last Republican National Convention after at least eight previous trips — a last chance to buy “shirts, hats, salt shakers, whistles, buttons, banners” and other memorabilia for his vast collection. “I’m obviously going to miss the chance to get the latest and greatest and be the only kid on your block that owns it,” the 74-year-old Claar said. But in the age of COVID-19 and a variety of fits and starts, the Republican National Convention that kicks off Monday will be held largely in a virtual digital setting just as the recently completed Democratic convention. Unlike the Democratic convention, where states’ delegates were told to stay home as former Vice President Joe Biden was nominated for president, Republicans are allowing 336 delegates to actually go to the host city, representing the 50 states, plus territories. Illinois GOP State Chairman Tim Schneider and Richard Porter, the state’s Republican National Committeeman, will attend. Demetra Demonte, the state’s Republican National Committeewoman, had planned to go but opted out for family health reasons. That leaves the rest of the 67-member delegation, all pledged to President Donald Trump’s renomination based on the state’s March 17 primary results, in a bit of quandary. Unlike the state’s Democrats, who met virtually for a rally session before each night’s prime-time festivities, the state GOP delegation’s schedule has become a work in progress. “I have no idea what to expect,” said Illinois Senate Republican leader Bill Brady of Bloomington, an at-large delegate. “I’ll be getting together with some colleagues to watch the convention and we’ll talk and see. But I just have no idea what to expect out of this, given the framework.” Other delegates said they are attempting to organize convention “watch parties” and Porter, en route to Charlotte, said “you can put together Zoom meetings in 15 minutes, so I do think at the end of the day there will be some of that.”)

— Plenty of Republicans will be in attendance at the four-day Republican National Convention—including Illinois delegates Richard Porter, a Chicago attorney and GOP national committeeman, and Illinois GOP Chairman Tim Schneider. They’re in Charlotte, N.C., where the business portion of the convention will take place. Other live speakers will appear from Washington. “Everyone is very upbeat. We’re pumped,” Porter told Playbook after he arrived in Charlotte over the weekend. “We’ve accepted the fact that we’re not doing the big shindig but we’re still upbeat. We’re pumped.” He expects the next four days to reveal the “stark” differences between “the Democrats’ dark vision of an America that’s systematically evil and our vision of an America that’s fundamentally good. I think people are looking forward to making the case and showing that contrast.” Illinois’ delegates: Along with Porter and Schneider, they are Reps. Darin LaHood and Mike Bost, state Rep. Andrew Chesney of Freeport, Black Conservative Foundation President Diante Johnson, Will County GOP Chairman George Pearson, 41st Ward Committeewoman Ammie Kessem, Palatine Township Committeeman Aaron Del Mar, and congressional candidates Mary Miller for the 15th District and Jesus Solorio Jr. in the 4th. . .Illinois voice among convention speakers: Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, an Illinois native, takes the stage tonight, along with former U.N.

WORLD TRIBUNE
— Chicago activist to residents angry about looting: ‘Get over it’
https://www.worldtribune.com/chicago-activist-to-residents-angry-about-looting-get-over-it/
— Washington Post outraged that White House allows conservative outlets at press briefings (DIERSEN: www.gopillinois.com is a conservative news outlet.)
https://www.worldtribune.com/washington-post-outraged-that-white-house-allows-conservative-outlets-at-press-briefings/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Washington Post, the news outlet which amplified one of the biggest political hoaxes in American history, is calling out conservative-leaning news outlets for allegedly amplifying hoaxes. The Post complained in two recent articles that The Gateway Pundit, The Epoch Times and One America News Network (OANN), three conservative sites that it says are “amplifying hoaxes,” were allowed into White House press briefings given by President Donald Trump. The Post won a Pulitzer Prize for amplifying the Trump-Russia hoax. Many have called on it to return the prize. The Post opined in its news pages that “The White House press corps just got a little more Trump-friendly, thanks to a bit of maneuvering by the White House itself.” The Jeff Bezos-owned “newspaper” says the conservative outlets are being unjustly given special treatment at Trump’s press briefings at which the preponderance of “journalists” present represent anti-Trump corporate media monopolies. During one recent briefing that particularly set off the Post, Gateway Pundit reporter Alicia Powe was called on to ask a question of Trump. Powe asked the president about Joe Biden attempting to take credit for the Trump administration’s brokering of the normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE. Powe “asked one of the only sensible questions during the entire presidential press conference,” Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft noted. In another article, the Post was irate that Trump fielded questions at his Aug. 13 press briefing from The Epoch Times and OANN. As for OANN, the cancel culture mavens at the Washington Post have complained many times about the network. The Post summed it up in a June headline about OANN: “When Fox News disappoints, Trump has a backup”. “The far left media STILL believes they are entitled to promote the news narrative in America today,” Hoft said. “These far left dinosaurs have failed to keep up with the times. They have failed to look within at their own shortcomings.” Hoft asked: Will the Washington Post ever apologize to their readers for promoting the Trump-Russia collusion lies? Will the Washington Post ever apologize to their readers for their false attacks on the Covington Catholic school boys? Will the Washington Post ever honestly report on Joe Biden’s cognitive decline? “The American public have seen through the constant lies of the far left mainstream media,” Hoft said. “And, although the White House Correspondents’ Association believe they own the news coming from the White House — They don’t!”)

— Yes, we should keep teaching the hard but hopeful story of America – JEFFREY SIKKENGA (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats hint/imply/argue/shout that if you are a conservative White male Republican, the more successful that you are, a) the more that you benefitted from “White privilege” and b) the more that 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. According to my critics/opponents, because of discrimination against minorities and because of discrimination against females, if had been a minority or a female, a) I never would have been able to earn 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; job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48; and a job-related professional license when I was 32 and b) the Post Office would not have hired me in 1966, Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970, Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971, IRS would not have hired me in 1971, IRS would not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, GAO would not have hired me in 1980, and GAO would not have promoted me in 1986.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some people contend that these are part of America’s DNA, a product of the “white privilege” and “systemic racism” that must be highlighted in schools as defining characteristics of America. Until American history is taught this way, they say, we should cancel history classes. This view, however well-intentioned, neglects the full American story. We cannot negate or excuse the horror of slavery. As Abraham Lincoln said, “If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.” While every country has ugly parts of its past, America has the special burden of race-based slavery, segregation and discrimination. This can be hard to hear, but it needs to be said. . .If American history were essentially the story of white privilege and systemic racism, no patriotic American would have opposed slavery or segregation. . .If we cancel American history classes, students will never understand or learn from that story. If we teach young people that America’s past is fundamentally defined by white supremacy and systemic racism — if our history is, at its core, one of ugliness and oppression — they will never feel part of this country or be inspired by our struggle for freedom. They will never know the hard but hopeful story of America.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200821/suited-for-success-naperville-charity-outfits-jail-inmates-for-job-interviews-court
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen saved himself a bit of work last week. According to DuPage County Circuit Court Clerk Chris Kachiroubas, Jorgensen — a surgeon — responded “in a New York second” to a man in distress Aug. 15 at a restaurant. Jorgensen and Kachiroubas were at an informal monthly political lunch when a man began to flail about and stand up. The coroner grabbed him, sat him down and performed the Heimlich maneuver several times, dislodging a piece of meat from the man’s throat. “The Doctor Richard Jorgensen may have cheated the Coroner Richard Jorgensen,” Kachiroubas said at a county board committee meeting Tuesday. “That was pretty crazy,” Jorgensen told us. He was in medical school about the time the Heimlich maneuver became well-known and learned it there. He has performed it several times since, he said. As a med student, he taught it to his parents — and shortly thereafter, his father used it to save his mother. “Everyone should know the Heimlich,” he said. Why put the guy in a chair? Because he was big and tall. “I was concerned if he passed out,” Jorgensen said. “I was just blessed to be in the right place at the right time,” he added. And out of curiosity, he looked up how many people died in DuPage County last year from choking on food: seven.)

Yes, that’s when real political nastiness was put on steroids by the left, when the anarchists and socialist hippies in America abandoned all ethics and displayed unacceptable evil and violence when protesting the war. They started a national movement to refer to members of the American military as “baby-killers”; military people were ambushed at airports by leftist protesters.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Trump falsely suggests Kamala Harris, who was born in California, does not meet citizenship requirements. (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned my outstanding parents and how they raised me. My outstanding parents had me baptized as a Missouri Synod Lutheran (MSL) in 1948, raised me as a MSL, and had me confirmed as a MSL in 1962. They sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade Scholl in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with MSL.)
https://www.nytimes.com/live/2020/08/13/us/biden-vs-trump
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mr. Trump appeared to be referring to a widely discredited op-ed article written in Newsweek by John C. Eastman, a conservative lawyer who has long argued that the Constitution does not grant birthright citizenship, as proof. Ms. Harris, the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, was born in 1964 in Oakland, Calif., several years after her parents arrived in the United States. In the hours after Joseph R. Biden Jr. announced Ms. Harris as his running mate, a new crop of memes and conspiracy website posts began proliferating online, suggesting that the junior senator was an “anchor baby” because of her background. Mr. Eastman’s column tries to raise questions about the citizenship of Ms. Harris’s parents at the time of her birth, and argues that she may be “owed her allegiance to a foreign power or powers” if her parents were “temporary visitors” and not residents. Constitutional law scholars have argued that the argument against her parents is irrelevant and irresponsible because Ms. Harris was born in California.)

WATERTOWN DAILY TIMES
— Sen. Kamala Harris, the cancel culture cop – Scott Peterson
https://www.wdtimes.com/article_b23691dc-55c0-5187-ad0c-3c83d38d76b2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden would rather sate the appetites of his party’s culture warriors than unite a divided nation. That’s the central lesson from his choice of Sen. Kamala Harris as a running mate. Harris is a vindictive culture war cop whose political and prosecutorial career has been built upon punishing those she finds deplorable. Biden has just raised the stakes of the 2020 election and relinquished his claim to being a “safe pick.” Not in our lifetimes has a nominee’s running mate been so consequential. His choice matters, not only because he is very old and clearly in decline but also because he is running to be a placeholder president. Biden was nominated not for his virtues but for his lack of the politically deadly vices that beset his opponents in this year’s primary. It is shocking that he would pick such a divisive No. 2, whose unpopularity outside the core Democratic base is abundantly evident. Harris collapsed in the presidential polls almost the moment she stepped into the spotlight. Despite being amply funded, she went from tied for second place at 15% in mid-July 2019 to low single digits by September. Harris’ favorability is underwater among independents, with 33% unfavorable to 25% favorable, and during her presidential run, she was never above water. Harris is not the pick Biden would make if he were trying to maximize his chances of winning the election. This is baffling if you believe, as the cable networks and graying old editorial pages have screamed, that getting rid of President Donald Trump is of utmost importance for the survival of the republic. No, you pick Harris if you are beholden to your party’s woke culture warriors. The left has largely won the culture war, securing gay marriage, saving Roe v. Wade, and normalizing transgender ideology. Now, they want to punish dissenters. This is Harris’ area of expertise. You can call it “cancel culture,” but that term is too benign. She is not a mere demagogue. She is a demagogue who will use the power of the government to punish “the other side.” She is a dead-on prosecutor, ”her mentor Willie Brown wrote,” and when she goes into that mode, watch out. She is out for blood.” As California attorney general, Harris prosecuted and persecuted pro-life undercover filmmaker David Daleiden for his work exposing Planned Parenthood’s trade in fetal remains. She seized his recordings while pursuing the abortion lobby’s endorsement for Senate. She was also the first prosecutor to use California’s eavesdropping laws against a journalist, all after secret consultations with the abortion provider. The government should treat pro-lifers like segregationists, Harris has argued publicly. A clear majority of the public, about 70%, believe there should be restrictions on abortion, but Harris wants to treat states that pass restrictions as if they are acting outside the bounds of democratic legitimacy. She’s called the Knights of Columbus “extremist.” She will attack “the bad guys” on the flimsiest grounds. Recall her bizarre line of questioning about the “Kasowitz law firm” during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. When Kavanaugh looked confused by the questions, Kamala’s cheerleaders in the media credited her with a beautiful “prosecutorial beatdown.” It turns out there was nothing there but innuendo — empty badgering to make a political opponent look bad is just what an abusive prosecutor does in front of a jury. It’s her style. Harris’ presidential campaign was focused on dividing the country. Gun owners, pro-lifers, home-schoolers, and traditional religions will have reason to fear persecution in an administration where Harris has sway. We know she will have sway because the culture-war wing calls the tune in Biden’s Democratic Party. Biden will probably continue to talk about reuniting a country divided by Trump’s presidency. But as of today, nobody should believe it.)

— How Racism in HR Practices Hides in Plain Sight – Jeff Neal (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, because of discrimination against minorities and because of discrimination against women, if I had been a minority or a woman, a) I would not have been able to earn 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; job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48; and a job-related professional license when I was 32 and b) the Post Office would not have hired me in 1966; Firestone Stores would not have hired me in 1970; Oldsmobile would not have offered me a job in 1971; IRS would not have hired me in 1971; IRS would not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974; GAO would not have hired me in 1980; and GAO would not have promoted me in 1986. However, my superiors have always been under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females. If I had been a Democrat, minority, woman, and/or veteran, my Democrat superiors in the federal government would have promoted me into their Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old.)
https://www.fedsmith.com/2020/08/11/how-racism-hr-practices-hides-plain-sight/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Qualifications requirements are one of the biggest sources of racism in hiring and promotion. They are described as being the core of merit-based hiring, but are they really? If an agency decides it wants to hire only people with Bachelor’s degrees, but the job does not require a degree and the agency has no proof that a degree leads to higher performance, the agency is discriminating against people who lack a particular credential that is not needed for the job. When we look at this chart of census data on education and race, it becomes apparent that a degree requirement that is not valid is likely to make more white and Asian people eligible for the job, and fewer Black and Hispanic people eligible. Was the intent to be racist? Probably not, but the intent does not erase the racially biased outcome of the decision. There are other education-related practices that can result in racial disparities. For example, I have worked with many senior executives who like to recruit at particular schools (often their alma mater). Depending on the racial makeup of the school, the result can be racial disparity. Again, those are generally not cases where the person making the recruiting decision intends to discriminate based on race, but that is still the outcome. Racism also exists in performance ratings. . .Another good example of racism is in discipline and adverse actions. . .Agencies often rely on years of experience for hiring and promotion decisions. . .The hiring process itself is cloaked in the language of merit, yet it is remarkably subjective.)
