What could it mean for November? – Joey Garrison (DIERSEN: How enthusiastic for Trump are the following: a) the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, b) the leaders of your Republican county/township/ward party organizations, c) your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, d) the Republican elected officials in Illinois including those who run your county, township, municipality, and municipal district, e) conservative leaders in Illinois, and f) religious leaders in Illinois?)

— The Class of 2020 Was Headed Into a Hot Job Market. Then Coronavirus Hit. 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.)

— Normal council grants Mayor and City Manager Emergency Powers – Munashe Kwangwari III
https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/normal-council-grants-mayor-and-city-manager-emergency-powers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the virus continuing to spread in McLean County, both twin cities council’s are taking the next step to ensure people are safe and have nothing to worry about. On Monday, the Normal council met to declare a local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, members gave Mayor Chris Koos and City Manager Pam Reece emergency powers. What this means is, both Reece and Koos now have the authority to make decisions that might ordinarily be outside municipal policies or codes. That includes spending money outside what’s outlined in the budget to fight the pandemic. In a balance of powers effort, the town council has the ability to review any and all orders issued by the Mayor. “There are situations that we really can’t anticipate,” said City Manager, Pam Reece. “We want the ability to be able to be nimble and react quickly.” The ordinance is now in effect, and will end when Pritzker’s stay at home order ends, which at this time is set for April 7th.)

If I had not earned an MBA and passed the CPA examination on my first attempt, GAO would not have hired me in 1980. 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.)

— Why the rich favor the Democrats – Peter Skurkiss (DIERSEN: Rich people have never had to pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, or Inclusion. I should write a book about such rich people in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, in Wheaton’s West District, in my precinct, etc. I would focus on the aforesaid who focus on destroying me because I oppose patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/03/why_the_rich_favor_the_democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do the wealthy align with the Democrats? The answer may seem counter-intuitive, but it is really quite simple. It’s surely not ideals or high-minded principles. Nor is it ignorance. Rather, it boils down to raw self-interest. In his book, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties, Christopher Caldwell notes that rich Americans think themselves to be as vulnerable as blacks. They are a relatively small minority of the population. They fear being resented for their wealth and power and of having much of that taken from them. Accordingly, the wealthy seek to protect what is theirs by preventing strong majorities from forming by using the divide and conquer principle. As R.R. Reno writes when reviewing Caldwell’s book: “Therefore, the richest and most powerful people in America have strong incentives to support an anti-majoritarian political system.” He goes on: “Wealthy individuals shovel donations into elite institutions that incubate identity politics, which further fragments the nation and prevents the formation of majorities.” Some of the rotten fruit of the wealthy taking this approach include multiculturalism, massive immigration of diverse people, resistance to encouraging assimilation, racial strife, trying to turn white males into pariahs, and the promotion of gender confusion. Through it all, society is bombarded with the Orwellian mantra that “diversity is strength,” as if repeating it often enough can make it so. It is also why patriotism and a common American culture are so disparaged today. Those from the upper strata of society project the idea that if you’re a flag-waving American, you must be some kind of retrograde mouth-breathing yokel. The wealthy as a groups are content to dissolve the glue that holds the U.S. together. And it is all done to enhance and preserve their power, wealth, and influence. This is why they so hate Donald Trump. He strives to unite people and the country, although you’d never know that that is what the president is doing if you live in the media bubble. Trump’s MAGA agenda is an anathema to the managerial class.)

WASHINGTON MONTHLY
— Who Is Really Voting? Why you shouldn’t trust exit polls—and why the 2020 electorate is much older than you think. – Phil Keisling
https://washingtonmonthly.com/2020/02/25/who-is-really-voting/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s a familiar lament: the Democratic electorates in the nation’s first presidential contests are quite different from those elsewhere in America. Far less known and much less discussed: how wildly un-representative those voting so far in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, are when compared to those states’ typical Democratic electorates. The caucus system itself is the most visible culprit. Just 30 percent of Iowa’s 600,000 registered Democrats participated in the February 3 caucus. Meanwhile, Democratic turnout in Nevada was closer to 15 percent. Former Senator Harry Reid is right: both caucuses need to go. But the largely ignored, more insidious problem involves caucus “entrance” and election “exit” polls—or more precisely, the political journalists, pundits, and analysts who can’t separate their reliable data from that which is highly suspect, if not downright wrong.)

NATIONAL WHISTLEBLOWER CENTER
— Whistleblower Protection Laws for Federal Employee Whistleblowers (DIERSEN: Whistleblower Protection Laws did not protect me. While I was a federal employee for almost 30 years, I blew the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. To punish me, 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.) 
https://www.whistleblowers.org/whistleblower-protection-laws-for-federal-employee-whistleblowers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Strong whistleblower protections already exist for federal employees. However, specific reforms to these laws are needed to make whistleblowing safer and more effective for federal employees. Understanding Federal Employee Whistleblower Protection Laws Passed in 1989, the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) is one of the primary statutes that outlines public employees’ right to speak out about misconduct, aimed at ensuring that all government employees can safely disclose “violations of laws, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority and or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety.” Additionally, Executive Order 12731, issued in 1990, requires all federal employees to “disclose waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption to authorities.” This Executive Order makes such disclosures mandatory in order to ensure standards of ethical conduct for all executive branch employees.)

THRIVE GLOBAL
— 3 Types of Workplace Discrimination (That Often Happen in Plain Sight) Workplace discrimination is getting plenty of attention lately. Here are three kinds of workplace discrimination that don’t get the attention they deserve. – Andrej Kovacevic (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who promote age discrimination. I would focus age discriminators in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://thriveglobal.com/stories/3-types-of-workplace-discrimination-that-often-happen-in-plain-sight/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Age Discrimination In today’s economy, it’s generally believed that we’re about as close to full employment as we’ve ever been before. That reality is pushing more traditionally underrepresented groups into the labor force, changing its composition in ways that we have never seen before. A prime example of this is the fact that people aged 65 and over are now the fastest-growing segment of the US labor pool. That, in turn, is driving a sharp increase in the number of incidents of age discrimination in the workplace. According to a recent survey, two in three US workers aged 45 or older report seeing or experiencing such discrimination at work, and that number seems to be rising. As long as unemployment remains low and more older Americans are forced to keep working due to financial insecurity as they approach retirement, age discrimination is likely to remain an issue for some time to come.)

When I was in high school, I was not viewed as being “college material.” Neither of my outstanding parents 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.)
