— NYT: Elites ‘Ghost’ Their Illegal Migrants in Coronavirus Crash – NEIL MUNRO
https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/09/21/nyt-elites-ghost-their-illegal-migrants-in-coronavirus-crash/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wealthy Americans have quietly fired and discarded many of their illegal migrant house cleaners since the coronavirus economic crash, often without warning or compensation, says the New York Times: . . . The article, and the quoted pro-migration activists, only hinted at the hypocrisy of elites who applaud migration and diversity but discard their illegal migrant employees without warning or compensation. . . But the article also sidelined the damage done to Americans’ labor market by the creation of several underclass workforces within the U.S. labor market. For example, the article glossed over the reality that employers know they can hire low-wage illegals at minimal legal risk, so undermining the hard-won labor market rights of Americans. . . The passive-voice phrase “were largely replaced” hides the rarely-noted movement in the 1970s and 1980s by upper-income whites to hire illegal, grateful, and compliant Latinos instead of proud American citizens — mostly blacks — for domestic chores. “The reporter seems to be avoiding the question of why the American women, having won these new worker protections, just coincidentally happened to stop working in this field and be replaced by Hispanic women,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which favors reduced immigration and tight labor markets.)

Nevertheless, according to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, because of discrimination against minorities and because of discrimination against females, if I had been a minority or a female, a) UIC, NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and IIT would not have admitted me in 1966, 1969, 1972, 1976, and 1992 respectively, b) the Post Office, Firestone Stores, Oldsmobile, IRS, and GAO would not have offered me jobs in 1966, 1970, 1971, 1971, and 1980 respectively, c) I would not have passed the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my first attempt in 1979 and 1981 respectively, d) IRS would not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974 and GAO would not have promoted me in 1986, and e) I would not have become a licensed CPA, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, or Forensic Accountant in 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997 respectively.)

THE HILL
— Journalism or partisanship? The media’s mistakes of 2016 continue in 2020 – SHARYL ATTKISSON (DIERSEN: What do you say to journalists who claim to be nonpartisan, but who serve as propagandists for the Democrat Party, Libertarian Party, and/or Green Party?)
https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/516036-journalism-or-partisanship-the-medias-mistakes-of-2016-continue-in-2020
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there were any doubt left after 2016 as to what too much of the mainstream news media in America has become, it most certainly has been erased in 2020. Too often, many in my industry have revealed themselves as little more than propaganda tools for dueling political sides, no longer reporting the way journalists once did. We compete for the latest anonymous “scoop,” scandalous rumor or unsupported accusation. We pounce on the supposed “bombshell” du jour and hype it on the news, accompanied by endless round robins with political operatives. Many of us don’t even bother to find and report on stories that powerful people and interests aren’t pushing. To do this, too many of us have abandoned basic tenets of journalism. We ignore the suspicious timing of the handout “leaks” or scandals — as if nobody notices. We fail to explore or disclose sources’ motivations or conflicts of interest — as if nobody wonders about them. We don’t even pretend to assess the true news value of the “bombshell.” We’re simply happy to be of service to the propagandists; we invite them to use us, and our superiors reward us with admiration. Many of our peers either repeat the reporting, seek to confirm it using equally dubious methods or discredit it. Rarely do we step back and consider that the whole drama is being orchestrated by political puppet masters who count their successes by the number of news stories they generate.)

— O’Brien can’t beat Foxx as a “Republican” Judge Pat O’Brien is in a unique position to unseat Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx who has made race and racism the determining factor in how she prosecutes crimes. But O’Brien can’t defeat Foxx if he wraps himself in the Republican Party and associates himself with far rightwing extremist like Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau. 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.)

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.)

While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year, I increasingly worked as a referencer, that is, as a fact checker. That work required assuring the accuracy and support for each and every word, number, table, graph, chart, conclusion, opinion, and recommendation in GAO reports. I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year.

— Trump campaign adviser floats false birther theory about Kamala Harris’ eligibility for vice president – MELISSA QUINN
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/kamala-harris-vice-president-eligibility-birther-conspiracy-trump-campaign/

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.

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.)

FED SMITH
— 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.)

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/08/10/jim-hood-google-392585
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jim Hood antagonized Google for nine years as Mississippi’s attorney general, going after the internet giant for enabling the sale of illegal drugs, allowing pirated content to flourish online and serving up targeted ads to children. And Google fought back: Hood holds the title of the only U.S. public official the company has ever sued. Now Hood has returned for more. Earlier this year, he signed on as a consultant to the massive, multistate investigation into the company’s dominance online. Forty-eight states, D.C. and Puerto Rico are expected to file an antitrust suit against the company this fall — one that, paired with a federal antitrust probe, represents the biggest regulatory threat to Google’s business yet. The twin efforts target the heart of Google’s business: advertising and search, which are key to the company’s $160 billion annual revenue. The states’ decision to bring on Hood, who stepped down in January following an unsuccessful bid for governor, suggests they are expecting a drawn-out legal battle that will require persistence, and maybe a bit of an attack dog. “Dealing with Google is like dealing with a teenager,” the 58-year-old Democrat said in an interview. “They don’t follow the norms that other businesses do. Google will tell you one thing and do something different.” During his 16 years as Mississippi AG, Google was Hood’s biggest — and most elusive — target, spanning issues including antitrust, privacy, intellectual property theft and the power of state attorneys general to investigate tech. While other states and agencies opened investigations into Google during the same years, Hood mostly operated independently and kept going long after the others settled or let their cases drop.)

— Wanted: Young People To Work The Polls This November – Barbara Sprunt (DIERSEN: What do you stress to those who question your age and health? I stress that nothing has stopped me from putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email a) each and every morning since 2004 and b) each and every evening too since 2015. Those emails have included links to more than 375,200 articles and information on many upcoming events.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most poll workers are over 60 Weiss’ group is just one effort to find new poll workers for the general election. In an unusual partnership, entities including Comedy Central, the Fair Elections Center, Patagonia, Uber and Levi Strauss & Co. are recruiting poll workers. “It really does speak to the level of concern that all of these folks who normally aren’t on the same side of things see the need to come together and solve this big problem,” says Scott Duncombe, who’s heading a new initiative called Power the Polls. Through digital marketing, Power the Polls aims to recruit 250,000 new poll workers on behalf of its partner organizations, most of which fall under Civic Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of businesses. Civic Alliance is encouraging its members to provide paid time off for employees who elect to staff poll locations. According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 58% of poll workers in the 2018 general election were over 60, an age that is linked to a higher risk for complications with COVID-19. A shortage of election workers plagued some early primary states, and election experts fear a massive shortage for the general election. “We’re talking about enormous numbers of poll workers who are not going to feel comfortable, and already have shown it in the primary, being in the polling places in the midst of a pandemic when they have concerns about their health,” says Bob Brandon, president of the Fair Elections Center. Brandon says even in normal times, convincing people to sign up to staff the polls can be challenging. It’s usually a 12-hour-plus day, with minimal pay and a fair amount of stress. Add in all the health concerns a pandemic brings, and it’s even harder to attract new workers. And although voting by mail is expected to increase dramatically this fall, Brandon says robust, in-person voting remains essential. “If you have a disability that requires you to be on an accessible machine to vote, you need to be there in person,” he says. “If you’re in a community that has terrible mail service, which many poor communities complain of, that’s an important need. Many people in the African American community have a distrust of anything different than taking a ballot and putting it into a machine, because of the history of voter suppression that they’ve encountered.” Brandon adds, “We can’t allow the lack of poll workers to mean there’ll be a lack of opportunities for people to vote in person, which will only lead to longer lines and other problems that ultimately mean fewer people vote.”)

In 1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me if I had not earned a job-related master’s degree (in business) in 1976, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, and almost completed the requirements for my second job-related (in accounting) master’s degree.
