I share the following: old, White, male, non-poor, gun owner, draft avoider, Christian, past/present federal employee, and our ancestors have been in America for a long time. In addition, Biden and I are Corvette owners. But my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote discrimination against those who have demographics like Trump, Biden, and I do.

— America Is Being Betrayed On Two Fronts
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=98304
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Such treachery is precisely why Chapter 7 of my book “Rules for Defeating Radicals” (Available at Amazon) is characterized as the single most important chapter of the entire work. Its title “RINOs: The Essential Alinsky Fifth Column,” unmasks those so-called Republicans who claim to be “on the right” when convenient, but who always undercut real conservatism at critical junctures. They are often the determining factor in leftist successes against America. Until our side fully grasps who they are, and why they need to be rooted out and sent packing, we can always count on them to do the dirtiest of leftist “dirty work” at the bidding of the Democrats. With the 2020 election theft hardly a “done deal,” and those Americans, including the Trump Team, who seek to uphold the law and Constitution fighting for their lives and the very future of the nation, such a proclamation from the likes of Christie is the ultimate effort to deliver us a fatal stab in the back. It comes on the heels of other similar duplicity from the predictable cadre of RINOs, including the McCain clan, former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. The propensity of self-serving and unscrupulous political gamers to swarm like moths towards the seeming brightest lights of power is nothing new. Still, their disloyalty needs to be underscored, and they need to be indelibly tagged as forever untrustworthy. Their willingness to suddenly and loudly proclaim themselves to be the “Second Coming of Ronald Reagan” come the next election cycle is no sign of a “change of heart.” Rather, it further proves their total contempt for the conservative voting base whom they are seeking to con, in preparation for future betrayals. From their perspective, the wholesale theft of the 2020 Presidential Election is really no big deal, and only reflects the ongoing ebb and flow of American politics.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/24/education-divide-deepens-democrats-worry-future-power/6325025002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Joe Biden described the presidential race as “Scranton versus Park Avenue.” He slammed tax cuts for billionaires. He touted that he would be a state school graduate, not another Ivy Leaguer, in the Oval Office. Months before Election Day, the Biden campaign adopted an economic populist message aimed directly at white working-class voters, convinced they could peel off a small portion of President Donald Trump’s base. Yet despite Biden’s election victory, this demographic – white voters without college degrees – remained just as loyal as ever to the president, defying public polling before the election that suggested Democrats were poised for small inroads. For Biden, wins in battleground states came thanks to growing support in affluent suburbs around cities like Atlanta, Philadelphia and Detroit where the president-elect expanded margins with a new Democratic stronghold: white voters who graduated college. The 2020 election widened the education polarization – a largely urban-rural divide that has come to define American politics, producing a mixed bag for Democrats. “The biggest thing that came out of this election was that education polarization – the gap between college-educated voters and (non-college-educated voters) – actually increased, rather than decreased like the polls predicted it would,” said David Shor, a Democratic polling and data expert who advised liberal political action committees this cycle. “(Democrats) basically treaded water in the least-educated areas and gained a lot in the educated areas.” Even as Biden beat Trump in the popular vote by more than 6 million votes, Democrats aren’t expected to gain control of the Senate, lost several House seats and failed to flip a single state legislature. Their rejection among white working-class voters, particularly in rural areas and small towns, helped lead to the disappointments. Once viewed as the party of working people, Democrats now rely on the Whole Foods shopper. At the same time, Democrats saw support slip among Black voters, their most loyal constituency, and Latino voters. Although Biden won Black voters overwhelmingly 87%-12%, Trump grew his support by 4 percentage points from 2016, according to exit polls. The shift was more significant among Hispanic voters. While Biden still won Latino voters overall, Trump performed 7 percentage points better than four years ago. He improved his margins in 78 out of 100 majority-Latino counties, according to an analysis from POLITICO. For years, Democrats expressed confidence that the country’s increasingly diverse, less-white electorate would give them an edge long-term over Republicans. Now, some in the party have concerns: That relying so heavily on urbanites and suburbanites puts them at a disadvantage electorally to capture the Senate, hold on to the House and retain the presidency. . .The fact Biden still struggled with non-college-educated white voters, according to Grossman, reflects the overall shift toward politics based on social and cultural divisions rather than economic. The same trend is found in European nations like the United Kingdom. With his cultural – not economic – brand of populism, Trump fanned fears about racial equity protests that erupted in cities. He pushed for “law and order” during the campaign, slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, and accused Democrats of being soft on violence and anti-police. He warned Biden would turn the U.S. into a “socialist” country and accused the Democrat of wanting to take away Americans’ guns. Trump even said, “There will be no God” if Biden were elected. “Voters are more associated with the party that they share social and cultural views with rather than necessarily economic policy opinions,” Grossman said.)

— 6 questions to ask to find out if you’re an ethical leader The director of Ethical Imperatives contends that ethical leaders possess six traits that command, not demand, loyalty. – YONASON GOLDSON (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents demand blind loyalty to them and to them only.)
https://www.fastcompany.com/90568314/6-questions-to-ask-to-find-out-if-youre-an-ethical-leader

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the workplace, bosses and managers may hold absolute power. But how they wield that power will determine the loyalty and, by natural consequence, the productivity of their employees. If you want to be respected as a king and not reviled as a despot, you need to command, not demand, loyalty. And the way your employees see you will depend on whether you conduct yourself according to the principles of ethics. In these complicated times, acting ethically is not as simple as it once was. Social norms change seemingly every day. Often, even the right choice produces collateral damage to real or perceived inequity. What is a leader to do? Loyalty is not acquired by merely making ethical decisions. More fundamentally, it comes from being recognized as an ethical person. The qualities that describe an ethical leader can be enumerated using a convenient acronym: E.T.H.I.C.S. An ethical leader asks the following questions to determine if they exhibit these qualities. . .As an ethical leader, you see your choices through a different lens and recognize that the culture you create will determine your bottom line. Most of all, you naturally command the loyalty that inspires others to join you in your purpose, to share your passion, and to commit themselves to your vision. By promoting a culture of success all around you, the rewards of that success will inevitably follow.)

Before that, they stressed that my Democrat GAO superiors 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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. Before that, they stressed that 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. Before that, they stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Savvy Democratic organizations then actively promoted voting by mail. For example, Lake County’s Democratic organization sent letters to registered voters detailing their options, including vote by mail, party Chair Lauren Beth Gash said. They also called people to inform them of those options and to motivate them to vote. Meanwhile, Trump and other Republicans groused about possible election fraud in voting by mail. Relatively few promoted it. “The Democrats had a messaging advantage,” said Kent Redfield, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Illinois at Springfield. ‘A Democratic lean’ Election results have shown most people who vote by mail back Democratic candidates. “Vote by mail does have a Democratic lean,” Redfield said. “New voters, particularly younger voters, find voting by mail very easy and low-cost in terms of time and effort.” On the flip side, Election Day tallies appear more Republican than the final totals. For proof of this partisan split, look at the Underwood-Oberweis showdown.)

HERITAGE FOUNDATION

Ever-increasingly, the more of the aforesaid that you are, the more that Democrat and RINO employers and organizations get rid of you.)
https://www.heritage.org/the-constitution/commentary/the-constitutional-way-defeat-cancel-culture
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “To start dismantling identity politics, then, and begin the civil rights movement 2.0, we need to stop the government from handing out benefits to those with a claim of victimhood simply because of membership in a protected group.” Suborning Americans to adhere to identity categories takes many forms. One clear example is preferential contracting programs that reward businesses certifi­ed as “disadvantaged business enterprises,” or DBEs. The owner of a business obtains certification as a DBE by being a member of a victim group and swearing in an affidavit that he or she has been “subjected to ethnic prejudice or cultural bias.” Having succeeded in life by overcoming this obstacle does not prevent certification. University of Maryland Professor George La Noue draws the only possible conclusion: “Thus, social disadvantage is, as a practical matter, established at birth, and cannot be challenged by evidence of a successful life.” DBEs, obviously, need to be discontinued. Indeed, the federal government should conduct an inventory to find out how many federal statutes make non-competitive awards based on race. The last time the Congressional Research Service (CRS) did this, in 2011, it found that there were nearly 300 federal statutes that “specifically refer to race, gender, or ethnicity as factors to be considered in the administration of federal programs.” The report added that, though its authors had been “as comprehensive as possible,” their findings were “by no means exhaustive.” The next obvious step is to declare that these statutes contravene the Constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. One of the most visible set-aside programs is affirmative action in university admissions. Vulnerable high school seniors worried about getting into a good college are being encouraged not just to tick any of the identity boxes, but also to produce victimhood narratives that will get them into the college of their choice. This will take the courts, in the end, to resolve, though the Trump Justice Department took an important step in informing Yale this summer that its admissions program violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act in discriminating against white and Asian-American applicants. Lastly, the least recognized form of racial discrimination is one of the most important: the doctrine of disparate impact. This allows discrimination to be found in a policy’s outcome, not its intent. This is a civil rights lawyer’s dream and leads to arbitrary legal action, since all policies have a “disparate effect” on people, especially when the categories are artificial.)

TOWNHALL
— Solutions to Conservative Angst in 2020 – Loyd Pettegrew and Jim McCoy
https://townhall.com/columnists/loydpettegrew/2020/11/22/solutions-to-conservative-angst-in-2020-n2580431
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservatives should withdraw complete support from all news media that offer politicized opinion in place of carefully documented fact. Don’t subscribe to or buy progressive newspapers like The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, or even your local newspaper if it panders to the left. There are really good conservative daily newspaper alternatives like the New York Post, Epoch Times, Conservative Daily News, American Thinker and Washington Examiner. Pew Research reports newsroom employment dropping 51% over the past decade. Force them to downsize to even further. Falling readership will force advertisers to take their business elsewhere and these newspapers will fail. The same can apply to major television and cable news channels. Be very selective in choosing which to watch. Punish companies and their CEOs that virtue signal by stopping your purchases of their products and services. Be it the NBA, pro football, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, Nike, Levi Strauss, Intel, Peloton, etc., choose an alternative or go without. Choosing Dunkin Donuts over Starbucks, for example, will save money and you will be doing your part, as Nancy Reagan said, by “just saying no.” If you own stock in one of these leftist companies that support progressive causes, send a letter to the Chairman of the Board (not CEO) and tell him/her of your disgust at their sponsorship of Marxist causes and that you will relieve your 401K and investment portfolio of their stock and reinvesting your hard earned dollars in their competitors’ stock. Some professional athletes have taken center stage expressing their opinions and prejudices on social issues. We should be very leery of such social activists. Being athletic entertainers doesn’t mean they have the intellect or moral character to become trusted oracles. In many cases they are more representative of the problem than the solution. Organizations like 2nd Vote can help you discern which companies and organizations align with your beliefs. Stop using social media and Amazon Unburden your social media life as well as your reliance on Amazon. They are physically, psychologically and financially addictive! We have laid ourselves at the feet of leftist, BigTech gazillionaires who only have their own interests at heart. They are drunk with vainglorious power and self-importance, and are buying off Congress to stay unregulated. Our world would become a better place when we connect meaningfully with real people. Unsubscribe or simply wean yourself off all but the most vital social media usage. When in doubt, pick up the phone and have a real conversation with your friends; group text rather than Facebook them. Twitter is an ego trip that you don’t need to take. Frequent local stores when buying things, supporting your local economy; you can get comparable goods at reasonable prices at big box stores or product websites. Use UPS or Fedex to ship. Don’t send your children or grandchildren to left-leaning schools because if they are not yet, they will likely come home brainwashed. Conservatives must become more involved at all levels of public and private education. The National Education Association (NEA) voted to focus teacher in-service programs on “white fragility” rather than quality classroom educational practices. It holds monopolistic control over public education as a labor union, strongly aligned with liberal Democrats. Most parents prefer quality teaching in math, English, reading/writing or science over K-12 leftist indoctrination. Public boards of education must be reclaimed by conservative parents. With the Covid pandemic, many parents are eschewing regular schools dominated by teachers’ unions for charter schools, homeschooling and teaching pods, less influenced by left-leaning politics. New data show that these alternatives provide a superior choice and so are under attack by the NEA. The Biden administration will double down on these attacks. The vast majority of colleges and universities are completely leftist. State legislatures must become more vigilant of the prioritization of Marxism in higher education over democracy and the free enterprise system. Influence your children to attend politically conservative colleges like Hillsdale and Claremont, pursuing degrees in engineering, accounting, finance and STEM programs. Note, even medical school programs are now becoming woke as Stanley Goldfarb has opined, “A new wave of educational specialists is increasingly influencing medical education. They emphasize “social justice” that relates to health care only tangentially. This approach is the result of a progressive mind-set that abhors hierarchy of any kind and the social elitism associated with the medical profession in particular.”)

NEW YORK POST
— The Left’s ‘big-turnout’ myth and other commentary – Editorial
https://nypost.com/2020/11/21/the-lefts-big-turnout-myth-and-other-commentary/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: In March, President Trump warned that expanding mail-in voting would mean “you’d never have a Republican elected” again. Yet this year’s election raises doubts: With a “record-high turnout,” the GOP “not only held its own” but “exceeded expectations at every level.” Joe Biden won “a comfortable victory” in the popular vote, but “the GOP’s resounding success in down-ballot races” dealt a “significant blow” to the myth that “a latent majoritarian mandate exists for the progressive agenda.”)

Employers do not want to hire those who oppose political affiliation discrimination, oppose reverse discrimination, or oppose age discrimination. Employers do not want to hire those who do not help them meet their Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets. Employers do not want to hire those who are draft avoiders. Employers do not want to hire those who have had adverse actions taken against them. My Democrat 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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. 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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Grogan says he’s undecided as to whether he’ll seek a recount of the ballots cast in the Nov. 3 election. He must wait until after the numbers are certified Tuesday, Nov. 24, before he can make the request. According to the most recent count, Downers Grove Democrat White had 233,121 votes, or 50.01% of the vote, to Grogan’s 233,046. Grogan, a Republican, is seeking his fourth term. County election judges processed and tabulated an additional 3,292 mail and provisional ballots Tuesday, DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek said in a news release. DuPage County voter turnout was at 75%, with more than 491,000 votes tabulated — 118,000-plus cast on Election Day, 190,000-plus cast at early voting places and nearly 180,000 sent in by mail, she said. Grogan said Thursday he is considering a possible discovery recount, which would look at up to 25% of precincts to determine if there are any irregularities. “I haven’t finalized it yet but honestly, anything dealing with big numbers — whether it’s processing checks here (at the auditor’s office) or counting votes — there’s always an error rate,” he said. . .Gains made by Democrats in DuPage reflect a “political transition” in the historically Republican county, possibly the result of changing demographics or this year a Trump backlash, White said. “(The county auditor race) is not an outlier. It’s part of a pattern that was repeated throughout DuPage County,” he said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Millions of Americans who are working full-time jobs still rely on federal health care and food assistance programs because of low wages, a bipartisan congressional watchdog says. A report from the Government Accountability Office found that about 70% of adult workers participating in Medicaid, which provides health care to low-income Americans, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, are working full time. The report was requested by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who said its findings show an urgent need to raise the federal minimum wage. “At a time when huge corporations like Walmart and McDonald’s are making billions in profits and giving their CEOs tens of millions of dollars a year, they’re relying on corporate welfare from the federal government by paying their workers starvation wages.,” Sanders said in a statement. “This is morally obscene.” He said it was long past time to increase the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15.)

I asked to be assigned to the Chicago Heights store. My Chicago Heights Firestone Store manager disapproved of my following demographics: Republican, draft avoider, German American, and Missouri Synod Lutheran. He refused to let me start until I passed a probationary period working for the Firestone Store in Gary. After I had worked for him for 7 months, he rudely fired me when I gave him my 2-week notice that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile.)

WASHINGTON POST
— Walmart and McDonald’s have the most workers on food stamps and Medicaid, new study shows – Eli Rosenberg (DIERSEN: One reason why I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old was GAO’s claim that it was “nonpartisan.” I soon learned that claim was false. If I had been a Democrat, my Democrat GAO superiors would not have a) forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer, b) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, c) gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, d) given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, e) failed/refused to promote me beyond GS-13, f) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and g) forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/11/18/food-stamps-medicaid-mcdonalds-walmart-bernie-sanders/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A sizable number of the recipients of federal aid programs such as Medicaid and food stamps are employed by some of the biggest and more profitable companies in the United States, chief among them Walmart and McDonald’s, according to a new report from Congress’s nonpartisan watchdog. The Government Accountability Office undertook the study at the behest of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) to answer questions about the relationship between employers and the federal assistance programs. The report draws on February data from agencies in 11 states that administer Medicaid and the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as SNAP, or food stamps.)

DUPAGE COUNTY ELECTION DIVISION
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: BEYOND DISGUSTING, BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: According to DuPage County Election Division results, as of November 17, 2020, 6:53:41 PM, for County Auditor, Democrat William ‘Bill’ White had 233,121 (50.01%) votes and Republican Bob Grogan had 233,046 (49.99%) votes. The main reason why Republican candidates in DuPage County lost in this election and in the one 2 years ago and 4 years ago was voters voting for Democrats to punish Trump. The second reason was the Democrat invasion of DuPage County. – Dave Diersen

DAILY HERALD
— OCTOBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Experience an issue in DuPage County auditor race – Scott C. Morgan (DIERSEN: The Daily Herald endorsed Grogan.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201030/experience-an-issue-in-dupage-county-auditor-race
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Grogan, who has been the county auditor for 12 years, touts both his earlier career as a licensed CPA and his office’s record of innovation. Grogan was the first Illinois auditor to implement an online county checkbook, which allows the public to search and view expenditures. Grogan also emphasizes his creation of an audit hotline, which allows taxpayers to submit reports of fraud, waste or misuse of county resources. “I think that the people of DuPage County will recognize the good work that I started off doing when I first came into office and that I’m continuing to do,” Grogan said during a recent endorsement interview. “I think I’ve operated in this position with integrity and with a very high level of skills and output. “White, meanwhile, says he believes DuPage is at a “political crossroads” and might be aligning more with the Democrats. He hopes to be a part of any potential change. “It’s very well established in the private sector that rotating auditors is simply the sensible thing to do,” White said. “Bringing in a fresh pair of eyes is just inherently good.” White is an attorney who has served on the Downers Grove Village Council and the Community High School District 99 school board. White has also served on the zoning board of appeals in Downers Grove and Woodridge. “I have a track record of getting the Democrats and Republicans to work together,” said White about his time in local government. “My goal as auditor will be to facilitate good government, which I define as transparent.”)
— SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 FLASHBACK: Endorsement: Bob Grogan for DuPage County auditor (DIERSEN: By far, Grogan is the best qualified for the job. Like me, he passed the CPA examination on his first attempt, but his scores on each of the four parts of the examination were much higher than mine. Like me, he is a Certified Fraud Examiner, but he passed the examination on his first attempt while I “grandfathered” in. Grogan is a licensed CPA; I became a licensed CPA in 1981. White is not a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, or Forensic Accountant, but I am. White does not have auditing experience. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20200930/endorsement-bob-grogan-for-dupage-county-auditor
(FROM THE ENDORSEMENT: During his three terms as Du­Page County auditor, Bob Grogan has regularly looked to innovate. The Downers Grove Republican was the first auditor in Illinois to put a county checkbook online. He also was the first to create a transparency portal and an audit hotline. . .While White is well-versed in the duties of the office, we can’t ignore Grogan’s record and credentials. As a licensed CPA and certified fraud examiner, Grogan has the skill and experience to find waste and fraud in county government. Findings made by the auditor’s office during Grogan’s tenure have resulted in savings, firings and, most recently, federal charges against the Bloomingdale Township highway commissioner. Grogan is endorsed.)
