NEW YORK TIMES
— Missing From Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Surge: Democratic Endorsements Despite Ms. Warren’s upward momentum in polls and fund-raising, she lacks the support of a single governor, big-city mayor or fellow senator outside Massachusetts. – Jonathan Martin (DIERSEN: An obvious question is which of those who endorsed Sanguinetti will now endorse Ives or Kinzler. An obvious question is will Sanguinetti endorse Ives or Kinzler. Jim Ryan supporters continue to blame Pat O’Malley supporters Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich in 2002.)

JOURNAL STANDARD
— FROM THE MAY 11, 2013 ARTICLE: “In 2002, Sen. Pat O’Malley staged a vicious primary campaign for governor against eventual GOP nominee Jim Ryan, who was the attorney general. Conservative O’Malley refused to endorse the more moderate Ryan in the general election campaign, and Ryan was beaten by Democrat Rod Blagojevich, who is doing time in a federal penitentiary on a corruption conviction. “If O’Malley hadn’t attacked Ryan so viciously in the primary, Ryan could have made up the five points by which he lost and Illinois would have looked much different today,” Syverson said.”

ALTON DAILY NEWS
— Challenges Anticipated with Legal Weed – Doug Jenkins (DIERSEN: QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES: Have you ever used recreational weed? If so, exactly when and exactly how much? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? Are you going to use recreational weed when it is legal? If so, exactly how often and exactly how much? What do you say to people who impair themselves? Have you ever driven a vehicle while you were dunk or incapacitated? If so, exactly when? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? What do you say to people who impair themselves?) 
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=292314#.XaRSrL5_OM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While there are established, accepted and legally binding blood alcohol levels when determining when someone is drunk or incapacitated, no such tests exist to see if you are high on marijuana. With recreational weed becoming legal in Illinois next year, that has employers trying to figure out policy on how to address its use. A spokesman from OSF Healthcare outlines some of the challenges. Troy Overholt, Vice President for Occupational Health at OSF HealthCare admits to employers that while it may be risky and has yet to be challenged in court, monitoring for marijuana impairment in an employee may need to be less scientific and more observational. There is no scientifically reliable way to measure for marijuana intoxication. THC is stored in fat cells, so the length of time it’s in your system is not a blood test level. So, he says you could test high today from use weeks or months ago, and it depends greatly on frequency and the amount of use.)

DAILY NORTHWESTERN
— Community leaders talk push for reparations – Kalen Luciano, Heena Srivastava, Julia Esparza, and Amy Coval (DIERSEN: If/when the Democrats take over your municipality, who will they appoint to determine how much reparations that you have to pay? You should expect that the more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you will have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Of course, the Democrats will bankrupt you if any of your ancestors owned slaves, fought for the Confederacy, lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line, etc.)

It is beyond obvious those in the IRP, DCRCC, MTRCC, etc. who reject planks in the IRP platform and/or in the Republican Party platform and/or who reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling do everything that they can to a) stop me from sending GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails out and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. As everyone sees, the officers of the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRCC DO NOT encourage anyone to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. As everyone sees, the officers of the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRCC blacklist me and blacklist my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

WESTERN JOURNALISM
— Google Quietly Pushes Publishers Out of Google News, Remains Silent As to Why – Erin Coates (DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, etc. do not want Google to treat www.gopillinois.com as being a legitimate news website. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendment, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, retaliation, and even worse things. I would focus on 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, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that there is a 22+ year gap in my resume. They stress that my GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— Women still get fired for being pregnant, as Elizabeth Warren says she was in 1971 Walmart, UPS and other major employers have faced charges of mistreating pregnant workers – Leslie Albrecht (DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Firestone Stores fired me because I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Of course, to force an employee to retire is to fire that employee. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me retire, that is, they fired me. They fired me a) because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, c) because I refused to help them get rid of their employees who were Republican White, male, and/or non-veteran because they had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40, and d) because many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates despised many of my demographics including my being Republican, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Twenty-five years ago Friday, 367 Republicans running for Congress lined up on the Capitol steps on a clear September day weeks before the midterm elections to sign the Contract with America. . .When the lawmakers signed Gingrich’s contract, Republicans had no experience running the legislative branch. The last Republican Speaker of the House, Joseph Martin, had died 26 years before Gingrich took control. Gingrich pledged that a new way of business was coming to Washington, seizing power from committee chairmen who had never held a gavel themselves and making himself the most powerful Speaker in generations, a trend his successors have followed. Gingrich “was making all sorts of proclamations, and he was saying the presidency didn’t really matter. For a moment or two, we thought he might be right,” said Pat Griffin, Clinton’s director of legislative affairs at the time. “We were feeling terribly depressed, everybody was pointing fingers at everyone else.” For the next two years, the new Republican majority forced Democrats and the Clinton White House to react to their agenda. Clinton, his reelection hopes suddenly in doubt, moved to compromise with Republicans where he could and set himself apart from an increasingly unpopular Congress — including his own party — where possible.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sunday’s public apology by ex-Bergen County Executive Dennis McNerney, who admitted using dozens of pseudonyms to write false comments online about a political rival, is a warning to anyone who thinks the anonymity of the internet gives them a license to lie about public figures, legal experts say. McNerney, a Democrat, agreed to apologize to GOP consultant Alan Marcus to settle a five-year defamation case Marcus waged over online comments McNerney posted under fake names in 2014. The comments alleged that Marcus committed fraud, blackmail and corruption and was about to be indicted. Marcus’ attorney has deemed the settlement agreement, which includes an undisclosed financial sum and McNerney’s public apology, the result of “landmark” litigation. Legal experts won’t go as far as to call the settlement a landmark, but the resolution of the case does contain a lesson for trolls who think online anonymity is an impenetrable shield, according to lawyers who talked to NorthJersey.com and the USA TODAY NETWORK New Jersey.)
