DAILY SIGNAL
— 5 ‘Terrifying’ Policies to Brace for Under Biden – Tony Perkins
https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/11/20/5-terrifying-policies-to-brace-for-under-biden/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The very first, Jeffrey explained on “Washington Watch” on Wednesday, is to codify Roe v. Wade—making it impossible for states to limit or ban abortion for any reason. “Joe Biden wants a federal law that makes abortion nationwide a quote-unquote ‘right.’ Which I say is evil.” And, to add to that evil, he wants to force every American to pay for it. That’s No. 2: Biden wants to end the Hyde Amendment. In other words, every federal spending bill could be used in some way to fund abortion. The pro-life Hyde Amendment, which has stood in the way of that radical free-for-all for more than 40 years, would be gone, Jeffrey said. . .No. 3: Biden would reinstate the Obamacare mandate, demanding that every business and nonprofit cover abortion-causing pills and contraception in their health plans. As Jeffrey points out, “Unfortunately, the Supreme Court never really settled that issue, [so] this is a place where Joe Biden right away could do some serious damage.” No. 4: Biden says that on Day One, “he’s going to force public schools and colleges to treat biological males as if they’re females. He literally says they’re going to have to let transgenders pick their own gender identity … So literally, Joe Biden will order public schools to say that anatomical males can play on the girls sports teams, use the girls’ shower rooms, and use the girls’ restrooms. Completely outrageous, absolutely evil.” Last but certainly not least, the Obama vice president says he would order insurance companies to cover gender-reassignment surgeries—not only for adults, but young, impressionable children. Similar to [the] Hobby Lobby case, he’d make family-owned businesses provide that “treatment,” which is actually mutilation. “These issues, particularly those last two,” Jeffrey said, “did not get nearly the kind of exposure and discussion they deserved before the election. I think there are many Americans who have no idea that Joe Biden is going to order public schools to let boys play on their girls sports teams and let boys use the girls’ locker rooms. “To me, that’s such a huge [overreach]. And it’s not just evil. It shows a distortion of [Biden’s] mind and heart. And I don’t think there’s any way he could defend it … .” Some of these things, of course, he can’t do without Congress’ help. And that’s where you and I come in—encouraging our senators and congressmen to stand firm.)

CONVERSATION
— Being good at your job won’t stop age discrimination – Jelle Lössbroek (DIERSEN: Democrats and RINOs use up-or-out to get rid of Republicans. The Democrats who run the federal government use up-or-out to get rid of employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they do not promote to 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 federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
https://theconversation.com/being-good-at-your-job-wont-stop-age-discrimination-149954

(FROM THE ARTICLE: How old you are could be more important to some employers than your experience, or your capacity to do the job – particularly for older candidates. That was the conclusion of research my colleagues and I recently published on age discrimination. We tested 500 managers across nine European countries, using job applications of people aged between 43 and 63, and showed more suitable job candidates did not experience less discrimination. Our findings are especially significant seeing as retirement ages are on the up. Since 2000 they have risen across Europe by an average of 2.5 years and in many countries are projected to increase even further. The COVID-19 pandemic is primarily increasing unemployment among younger workers, but acquiring a new job can be easier for them than for older people, precisely because of this inequality in hiring practices. Ageism is also known to force older workers to accept unfavorable job conditions. And we know prolonged unemployment for older people is painful both financially and for their mental health. Damaging stereotypes  One theory about age discrimination focuses on something known as “statistical discrimination”, which we looked at in our study. It is the idea that employers often lack the proper information to determine which candidate is best, and therefore they base their decisions on discriminatory stereotypes. Information refers, in this instance, to details about training, experience, motivation, performance, health, and retirement intentions, or what we called the six productivity indicators. Interviews with managers suggest employers still fear that older workers are sick more often and that they are less motivated, healthy and productive. So, given the choice between an old and a young candidate with identical CVs, an employer affected by statistical discrimination would supposedly choose the younger candidate. Without enough information to differentiate between the two, they would resort to the stereotype of the older candidate being less productive and sick more often. If this explanation for discrimination is true, then employers might discriminate less on age if they had more information. Positive information would be especially relevant, because this goes against stereotypes. Negative information only confirms what the stereotypes already suggested.)

— 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.)

(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.)

— How the Biden Administration Can Free Americans from Student Debt – Astra Taylor (DIERSEN: Working your way through college, like I did, used to be viewed positively. I graduated debt-free from NIU in 1970 when I was 21 years old owning a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. The money for that, and for a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 that I bought in 1967, came from what I earned delivering mail for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. My parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969.)

FAST COMPANY
— 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.)

— Should You Really Build Leaders At Every Level Of Your Organization? – Doug Sundheim (DIERSEN: Of course, you can tell who controls organizations by looking at the demographics of their members who they dump. From what I see, generally, the more of the following that you are, the more that organizations dump you: Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, draft avoider, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Draft Policies Issued on Downplaying Educational Credentials (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, to meet Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets, employers lower hiring, retention, and promotion requirements. I should write about how my Democrat superiors in the federal government retained and promoted over me my coworkers and subordinates who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger than me and who had less job-related work experience, less job-related education, and/or fewer job-related professional certifications and/or licenses than I had.)

TECH BULLION
— Tips on How You Can Handle a Job Loss – Angela Scott-Briggs (DIERSEN: Have you lost a job? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.” Since then, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used that against me. 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.)
