— First Amendment authority: Pritzker’s demand that paper unpublish story ‘extreme measure’ – W.J. Kennedy (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have punished me and who continue to punish me for including links in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to articles they do not like. They have been emboldened by those who could/should come to my defense, but have not.)
https://prairiestatewire.com/stories/529040855-first-amendment-authority-pritzker-s-demand-that-paper-unpublish-story-extreme-measure
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A First Amendment authority says a demand by Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office that a central Illinois newspaper unpublish a story about the governor’s progressive income tax proposal was “highly unusual.” “Push back from a politician about facts being wrong or problems with the overall tone of the piece is what you normally see,” David Snyder, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition, told Prairie State Wire. “And if the paper did get the facts wrong, it should correct them immediately. But asking for a retraction of an entire article is a pretty extreme measure.” Pritzker’s office reportedly asked the Jacksonville Journal-Courier last month to unpublish a story by The Center Square about the governor’s plans to cut spending if voters in November shoot down his plans to shift from a flat income tax to a progressive one. The tax shift proposal, an amendment to the state constitution, is on the ballot this fall. In a follow-up story, The Center Square wrote that a spokesman for the governor, Jordan Abudayyeh, sent an email to the paper’s editor saying that the article was “flawed” and lacked context. “Ultimately, it would be prudent to take down this partisan content masquerading as news,” she was quoted as writing in the email. The Center Square said that a video accompanying story on its website shows Pritzker saying what he is quoted as saying in the story. “The governor’s office did not alert The Center Square to any errors in the Feb. 7 article, headlined ‘If voters reject progressive income tax, Pritzker promises to cut state spending, and no corrections were published,” the follow-up story said. Snyder, an attorney, said that only the example more extreme that he’s aware of is a private Swiss bank, Julius Baer Group, in 2008 getting a court order to shut down Wikileaks.org in a dispute over postings on the site by a former employee of the bank. The ruling was later overturned.)

Many members of the press attacked him for the allegation, despite some of their own co-workers being involved in celebrating the news as a way to attack Trump.)

Internships evaporate, career fairs are canceled and some college seniors wonder if they should even bother looking for jobs – Kathryn Dill and Patrick Thomas (DIERSEN: What class were you in? I was in the class of 1970. What negatively impacted your job search? For me, it was my being draft bait. My father had died suddenly in October of 1969. Potential employers did not believe that my financial hardship draft deferment application to support my mother and brother in Crete would be approved. Further, potential employers were under tremendous pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. Consequently, I took the only job offer that got — retail sales manager for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. The job did not really require a college degree. Constructively, I was the store’s salesman. Advancement opportunities were limited and slow. The store’s manager did not approve of my demographics (draft avoider, German-American, and Protestant). He never would have hired me, but Firestone Stores headquarters forced him to take me.)

— Dr. Fauci Was a Basketball Captain. Now He’s America’s Point Guard. His teammates in high school looked to Dr. Anthony Fauci for leadership. They’re still doing it more than 60 years later. – Ben Cohen (DIERSEN: When I was in high school, I was not viewed as being “college material.” Neither of my outstanding parents had attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school. I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class. My ACT score was only 24. I was 1-A for draft notwithstanding the fact that my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, I had partial red/green color blindness, and I had Osgood-Schlatter disease ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease). I spent my junior and senior years in high school and the summer in between washing dishes in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always stressed the aforesaid.)

Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

WINDY CITY TIMES
— Census 2020: The LGBTQ+ community counts (DIERSEN: How soon, if not already, will the Democrat Party have enough power to officially STOP a) municipalities including Wheaton, b) townships including Milton, c) counties including DuPage, d) states including Illinois, e) countries including America, and f) organizations including the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party from allowing those like me who do not promote LGBTQ activity from seeking or holding any kind of government and political office?) 
http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

If I had not earned a master’s degree in accounting and passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt, GAO would not have promoted me in 1986.

https://cnsnews.com/commentary/dr-michael-coulter/conservatives-go-college
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservatives, don’t give up on higher education. That’s essentially the opposite of what conservative political activist Charlie Kirk, leader of the conservative youth organization, Turning Point USA, told a crowd of young people at CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Kirk’s main contentions are that college isn’t really needed for a good career and that college has radicalized youth. My advice is that it’s against the interests of conservatives to follow this advice.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— White House, Warren Farrell mull fix to ‘boy crisis’ – Cheryl K. Chumley
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/mar/6/white-house-warren-farrell-mull-fix-boy-crisis/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Warren Farrell, co-author of “The Boy Crisis,” says America has a problem with males and it’s one that goes like this: They’re not being raised to be men. And how true that is. Today’s boys are being taught that masculinity is a disease. Where that’s led is to a rash of fatherless homes — and where that’s led is to a rash of behavioral, mental and psychological problems with the nation’s youth. It’s high time to end the experiment called radical feminism, the one where men aren’t needed and women can raise kids without male presences. It’s time to — as Farrell’s coined it — Make the American Family Great Again. MAGA, with a kick. “The boy crisis resides where fathers do not reside,” Farrell says. And in recent weeks, he’s met and spoken with a variety of folks from President Donald Trump’s administration, including officials with the Health and Human Services agency, the Department of Justice and within the hallowed halls of the White House. His goal is to create a national MAFGA program that would offer a Father Warrior Training program to help get America’s males back on the leadership track — to help bring back the once-valued masculine traits of responsibility, duty, strength and yes, love. To help teach those in the elementary levels how to be a proper father. This is no small task. Neither is it trite.)

— How Much Should Older Workers And Retirees Invest In The Stock Market? – Steve Vernon
https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevevernon/2020/03/03/how-much-should-older-workers-and-retirees-invest-in-the-stock-market/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Start by developing sources of retirement income that won’t drop when the market crashes; these sources should cover the cost of your “needs,” or at least come close. Such sources include Social Security, a pension if you’re lucky enough to have one, and cost-effective annuities you can purchase from an insurance company. Once you’ve developed enough sources of guaranteed retirement income to cover your basic living expenses, hopefully you should feel confident enough to invest your remaining savings significantly in stocks to give your money the potential for growth. This part of your savings can be invested in low-cost target date funds, balanced funds, stock index funds, or real estate investment trust (REIT) mutual funds. Then, use these savings to generate a regular retirement paycheck through a systematic withdrawal plan that covers the cost of your “wants”—hobbies, travel, gifts, and spoiling the grandchildren. When the stock market crashes, be prepared to reduce this retirement paycheck—and the money you’re spending on “wants” —while you’re waiting for the market to recover. If you put this type of plan in place, then, when the market crashes, you should have the patience and confidence to keep your investments in place and ride out the crash. Spend the time necessary to design a thoughtful retirement investing strategy, and you’ll be able to enjoy your life in retirement.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: It was created by Matt Leacock, a former Chicago graphic designer who grew up partly in Wheaton and studied visual communication at Northern Illinois University. He’s unsure of the exact inspiration for Pandemic but notes he developed it between the SARS epidemic of 2003 and the H1N1 swine flu outbreak of 2009, with warnings about the spread of infectious diseases in the 21st century on his mind. Now 48, he lives with his family in Silicon Valley, and like everyone else, he’s intently following coronavirus news and contemplating the endgame. We spoke the other day about the legacy of his scarily prescient creation. The following has been edited and condensed for space and clarity.)

I was 1-A for draft notwithstanding the fact that my eyesight could not be corrected to 20/20, I had partial red/green color blindness, and I had Osgood-Schlatter disease ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osgood%E2%80%93Schlatter_disease).

— Antonio Sabàto Jr: Supporting Trump got me blacklisted – JUDY KURTZ (DIERSEN: Who blacklists Trump-supporters in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, and in your county? By definition, blacklisters have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I should write a book about the blacklisters in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County. I would focus on blacklisters who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/485922-antonio-sabato-jr-backing-trump-got-me-blacklisted
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Antonio Sabàto Jr. says he’s working construction after being “blacklisted” by Hollywood for his support of President Trump. “All my representatives left me, from agents to managers to commercial agents. I literally had to move, find a new job to survive and take care of my kids,” the former Calvin Klein model said in an interview this week with Variety. “It’s been terrible. It’s mind-blowing. It’s a disgrace. It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know,” Sabàto said. The 48-year-old former “Melrose Place” actor was one of a handful of entertainers to vocally support Trump’s 2016 White House bid, and spoke at that year’s Republican National Convention. “I was the first celebrity to come out and talk about the president, and he had my vote from day one,” Sabàto told the magazine. But after Trump won office, Sabàto says his job offers in the entertainment industry dried up, forcing him to pack up and move to Florida for construction work. “I go on the job at two in the morning, and I’m making sure that the job is controlled and supervised by me. I’m in the car all day, driving, going through all the sites. Five days a week, nonstop,” he explained. The one-time GOP House candidate — Sabàto lost a 2018 bid to unseat Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) — claims other pro-Trump performers are reluctant to publicly vocalize their support for the commander in chief. “I know a lot of actors who are lying about who they’re going to vote for because they don’t want the crap,” Sabàto said. “They won’t want to be talked about and fired from movie sets. This is serious.” “The reality is the power that makes movies happen in Hollywood — casting directors, producers, executive producers, directors — they’re all liberal,” said Sabàto, while also noting he’ll vote for Trump’s reelection in November. “They hate anyone or anything who supports this president.”)

https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/crime/2020/03/03/milwaukee-molson-coors-shooting-facts-behind-racism-noose-rumors/4934728002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Company addresses harassment allegations In Milwaukee, a city known for its racial disparities, discussion on social media and elsewhere has increasingly turned to the shooter’s possible motive, with several former workers describing a hostile, and at times racist, work environment. The shooter’s family has declined all interview requests to discuss his background and any possible racism he experienced at work. However, on Tuesday, the company acknowledged that five years ago, a noose was placed on or in his locker. “The employee was not working that day, our HR team notified him of the incident, it was investigated fully,” Adam Collins, chief communications and corporate affairs officer for Molson Coors, said in a statement. In addition, reports have surfaced that the shooter had ongoing tensions with at least one co-worker. Company officials are not aware of any formal complaints by the shooter to management or human resources about racist harassment, nor are they aware of the shooter filing any Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or state agency complaints related to race discrimination or harassment, according to information Molson Coors provided Tuesday. In an email to employees Tuesday, Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley acknowledged the rumors and commentary on the company’s culture. “Our emotions are running high and that’s compounded by what we see and hear in the press and across social media,” he wrote, later adding: “And with few facts available, it’s easy to resort to speculating about the reasons behind the shootings.” “In the meantime, I want to be absolutely clear on one thing: We do not tolerate any kind of harassment whatsoever,” Hattersley wrote. “We have investigated, and we will investigate, every complaint of harassment, intolerance or misconduct that is raised. And we have taken, and we will take, appropriate action in response to complaints.”)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/for-growing-numbers-of-struggling-u-s-cities-the-downturn-has-arrived-11583248603
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Few municipalities are in a deeper hole for their size than Harvey, a city of 24,641 that was founded in 1891 by a lumber tycoon. Harvey, located about 17 miles south of downtown Chicago, grew into an industrial center, producing car mufflers, farm and mining equipment and military airplane parts. When Mr. Clark, the new mayor, was born a half-century ago, the population was nearly 35,000. Roughly 46% of employed men over 16 worked in manufacturing, according to the 1970 census. “Everybody had a nice fenced-off yard,” Mr. Clark recalled of his boyhood neighborhood. “There was either a Cadillac or a Lincoln in front.” The local Dixie Square Mall had more than 50 stores, including Woolworth and Montgomery Ward. Mr. Clark drove a forklift before getting a scholarship to law school. He opened his law practice 10 years ago in a former jewelry store downtown. Factories closed in the 1980s, taking jobs with them. By 1990, nearly 15% of men ages 25 to 54 were unemployed, according to the census. Dixie Square Mall was demolished in 2012 after closing years earlier.)

— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: At Precincts, Voters Weigh a Stark Choice – Valerie Bauerlein (DIERSEN: In your precinct, how much weight do the Republican voters give their Republican Precinct Committeeman’s recommendations on which candidates they should vote for in contested Republican primary races? According to my Democrat and Democrat plant, Libertarian and Libertarian plant, Green and Green plant, and RINO critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois, no one should vote for any candidate that I might recommend because the candidates who I might recommend are “too conservative” to win in general elections.)

GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE
— Civil Service Reform, Again – HOWARD RISHER (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. They focus on hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females. That means wasting the careers of and getting rid of federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who do not make GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: he recently released report from the Republican Study Committee’s Government Efficiency, Accountability and Reform Task Force identified civil service reform as one of three pillars to produce “a more efficient, effective, and accountable government.” The report correctly observes that without the “right people” meaningful reform cannot be implemented. However, the basic changes needed to attract the necessary talent—hiring reform, pay reform and benefits reform—have been proposed repeatedly in reports going back decades. At this point, no one would argue that the civil service system serves the needs of government or the country. The system impedes badly needed change. But it’s very likely this latest report will be quickly forgotten, just like all such previous reports.)
