— Biden signs executive orders on $15 minimum wage for federal workers, food aid increases – Josh Boak
(DIERSEN: In 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents were furious that the Post Office paid me $16.81 an hour (GS-4 Step 1) in today’s dollars. The Post Office hired me because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The job had the following requirements and I met all those requirements: high school diploma, pass an employment examination, pass a physical examination, pass a background investigation, pass a truck driving test, own a car to deliver mail from, and be available to work at least 20 hours a week.)

That is why ever-increasingly, Republicans are buying firearms and ammunition for their self-defense.)

I should write a book about my critics/opponents who hinted/implied/argued/shouted that TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois and Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) were extremist groups.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Biden calls for an end to ‘uncivil war,’ but will he defend free speech? – JOHN KASS
https://www.chicagotribune.com/columns/john-kass/ct-civil-liberties-kass-20210121-iibqjzxne5abzpebq5z4zokykm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But I did hope for more substance from his speech, delivered with tens of thousands of federalized troops on guard against violence. Why? Because Big Tech has been censoring its platform users and stifling dissent, which protects Biden’s politics. And because his party’s thought leaders in the compliant Washington establishment press corps and elsewhere continue to shriek about fascism while continuing their push to “deplatform” or “deprogram” dissenting voices. And mostly because tens of millions of Americans who did not vote for Joe Biden needed reassurance that they did not get. They’re worried about the cultural purge targeting them for doing what once was supremely American: standing up to speak their minds. And so, what was missing in Joe Biden’s speech? A full-throated commitment to defending the core values of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, which include the right of all Americans to speak their minds without fear of retribution. And I don’t mean wing nuts calling for violence of any kind.)

https://www.theepochtimes.com/biden-admin-embraces-racial-equity-ideology-in-slew-of-executive-action-announcements_3664911.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The incoming Biden administration has announced a series of executive actions that open the door for instituting the quasi-Marxist critical theory across the federal government. President Joe Biden would sign documents to “launch a whole-of-government initiative to advance racial equity,” his transition team said in a Jan. 20 release. Equity means equality of outcome, a concept tied to the critical theories that slice up society into identity groups based on race, gender, sexual proclivities, and others, while positing which groups are oppressed and which are the oppressors, similarly to how Marxism labels people as oppressors or the oppressed based on class. “The president-elect will sign an Executive Order beginning the work of embedding equity across federal policymaking and rooting out systemic racism and other barriers to opportunity from federal programs and institutions,” the release said. “The Executive Order will define equity as the consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals, including individuals who belong to underserved communities, such as Black, Latino, Indigenous and Native American persons, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and other persons of color; LGBTQ+ persons; people with disabilities; religious minorities, persons who live in rural areas; and persons otherwise affected by persistent poverty or inequality.” While the release talks about fair treatment of all, the proposals indicate some people will be more equal than others based on whether their demographics fit the administration’s profile of “historically underserved and marginalized.” Biden will direct all federal agencies “to undertake a baseline review of the state of equity within their agency and deliver an action plan within 200 days to address unequal barriers to opportunity in agency policies and programs.” The Office of Management and Budget will be tasked with “working to more equitably allocate federal resources to empower and invest in communities of color and other underserved communities.” The administration also wants to improve access to government benefits and services, “for example, by reducing language access barriers” and having agencies “engage with communities who have been historically underrepresented, underserved, and harmed by federal policies.” The administration wants to look into new ways to check whether its policies “advance equity.” Biden will also reverse the September executive order of then-President Donald Trump that banned federal agencies, contractors, subcontractors, and grantees from instructing their employees to follow the tenets of the critical theories. Trump’s order cited the work of Christopher Rufo, director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, who has been waging a “one-man war” against critical race theory in American government. Rufo has repeatedly warned of the intrusion of the ideology into civil society after obtaining documents showing the theory being pushed in various institutions. In a Jan. 20 release, Rufo called the theory a “grave threat to the American way of life” that “traffics in the pernicious concepts of race essentialism, race stereotyping, and race-based segregation—all under a false pursuit of ‘social justice.’” The theories produced an industry of consultants and speakers who get hired by corporations and government agencies to train their employees on themes such as “implicit bias” and “white privilege.” Trump’s order said the concepts of the theory are “divisive” and lead to “race and sex stereotyping and scapegoating.” Biden’s release said such trainings are “important and needed.” Rufo said the trainings “advance the ideology through cult-like indoctrination, intimidation, and harassment.” He announced in his January release a coalition of law firms and legal foundations called “Stop Critical Race Theory,” saying it has already filled three lawsuits with the goal of having the Supreme Court rule that programs based on the theory violate the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Constitution. “When we are victorious in the courts, it will have an immediate ripple effect through every school, government agency, and private employer in the nation. We will effectively abolish critical race theory programs from American life,” he said.)

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/social-media/2021/01/19/id/1006337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Social media giants crossed a threshold in banning President Donald Trump and an array of his supporters — and now face a quandary on defining their efforts to remain politically neutral while promoting democracy and free speech. After Jan. 6, with its unprecedented violence in the seat of Congress, Trump was banned for allegedly inciting the rioters — on platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google-owned YouTube and Snapchat. The alternative network Parler, which drew many Trump backers, was forced offline by Amazon’s web services unit. The bans broke new ground for internet firms but also shattered the longstanding notion that they are simply neutral platforms open for all to express any views. “Banning Donald Trump was a crossing of a Rubicon for social media firms, and they can’t go back,” said Samuel Woolley, a professor and researcher with the University of Texas Center for Media Engagement. “Up to now their biggest goal was to promote free speech, but recent events have shown they can no longer do this.”)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Trump Has Discussed Starting a New Political Party – Andrew Restuccia
(DIERSEN: From what I see, Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO leaders of Republican organizations a) despise/hate Trump supporters, b) want Trump to start a new political party, and c) will use the Capitol Riot to destroy the Republican Party once and for all.)
https://www.wsj.com/livecoverage/trump-impeachment-biden-inauguration/card/90pPMzFPqr5fMzg1Bkbs
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources. The president has a large base of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics prior to Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign. Third parties have typically failed to draw enough support to play a major role in national elections. Any effort to start a new party would likely face intense opposition from Republican party officials, who would chafe at the thought of Mr. Trump peeling off support from GOP candidates.)

KMJN
— NBC News Poll: Voters Bleak on US Track, Future
(DIERSEN: From what I see, the more of the following that you are, the more bleak that your future is: law enforcement officer, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.kmjnow.com/news/nbc-news-poll-voters-bleak-on-us-track-future/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: More than 70% of voters think the country is on the wrong track and that the next four years will remain politically divided — while a majority are pessimistic about America’s future, a new poll showed. The NBC News poll released a day before the Wednesday inauguration of Joe Biden paints a bleak picture of a worried nation. Here’s the breakdown: 73% say the country is on the wrong track. 73% say the United States will remain divided in the next four years. 53% say they’re worried and pessimistic about the nation’s future — the first time that response has been given to the question since 1998. The poll also showed voters find Biden likable and ethical, but didn’t give him high marks on the economy or for sharing their positions on the issues. 39% gave Biden a “4” or “5” on a five-point scaled on the economy; 38% gave him those high marks on sharing their positions on the issues. 55% of voters give Biden a “4” or “5” on a five-point scale of being knowledgeable and experienced enough to handle the presidency, and 53% as being easygoing and likable. 47% gave Biden high marks for having the ability to handle a crisis, and 45% give him high marks for having high personal and ethical standards.)

DAILY BEAST
— Fox News Launches ‘Purge’ to ‘Get Rid of Real Journalists,’ Insiders Say ‘BLOOD BATH’ Fox laid off at least 16 staffers, including Chris Stirewalt, who defended the election-night call that pissed off Trump. Insiders say the firings are part of an ideological purge. – Diana Falzone and Lachlan Cartwright
https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-launches-purge-to-get-rid-of-real-journalists
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But a dozen current and recently departed Fox News employees who spoke with The Daily Beast all said the “purge”—as a few characterized it—was part of the network’s larger effort to pivot its website from straight-news reporting to right-wing opinion content in the mold of Fox’s primetime programming. “There is a concerted effort to get rid of real journalists,” said one recently departed Fox staffer. “They laid capable people off who were actual journalists and not blind followers.” Others said it was an attempt to silence leakers from speaking to outside media about the changes being instituted by Porter Berry, a former producer for Hannity and Bill O’Reilly, who recently transitioned from the TV side to running Fox’s digital properties. “Porter’s uncomfortable around and is suspicious of experienced editors,” one Fox News insider remarked to The Daily Beast. “They make him feel inept because his background is entirely in TV.” “Porter is at the helm,” one current employee declared of the layoffs, while a recently departed staffer said: “This is all Porter. Both an ideological purge and a purge of people he was threatened by.” “It’s essentially the final nail in the coffin for digital journalism at Fox,” another recently departed staffer declared. Though, this former staffer noted, the shift to focusing on right-wing opinion has paid off for Berry. “What has slightly been working for him are recaps of the network’s primetime opinion shows,” the source said, and so the desire is for more “cheap labor to write a dozen 250 word recaps of the network’s primetime shows.”)

INDEPENDENT
— What if the US had a five-party system (Democratic Socialists, Progressive Democrats, Centre Bloc, Conservatives, America First)? The Trump years have wrecked the Republican Party, and the Democrats are pulling in different directions. But it doesn’t have to be this way. – Andrew Naughtie
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about the most anti-conservative leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization since 2000. I would focus on those who falsely claim to be conservative to give themselves standing to destroy conservatives.)

Tim Butler (R-Springfield) is calling on the Republican party to wipe out any similar problems the party currently has. “My hope is that those of us in the Republican party can own this because this was a rally that was at the behest of the President who is a member of our party. We need to make sure we root out any trouble that we have and make sure people understand this isn’t tolerated in our democracy, we can’t have this. Hopefully going forward it’s something we never see again,” Butler said.)

According them, because of Republican discrimination against minorities, females, and veterans, if I had been a minority, female, or veteran, none of the aforesaid would have happened and I would never have been able a) 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, b) to earn job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, or c) to earn a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The entire American tech stack, which enables Americans to buy, sell, pay, and communicate, has been weaponized in furtherance of a radical anti-freedom agenda. This is the single most chilling week in my lifetime, and America’s since the Civil War. If you don’t comply with the Left’s dogma and agenda, your ability to provide for your family, communicate with your friends, express your once-free-opinions, and live an American life, will come grinding to a halt. The glibness with which this fascist playbook has been enacted by billionaire boys-with-dictatorial-toys, the power-hungry Democratic Party, and their virtue signaling cultural proxies, only serves to underscore the deep fractures, incompatibility, and irreconcilable differences between the two visions of and for America: An exceptional, but imperfect nation, which has incrementally improved on all dimensions since inception, and has done more good for humanity than all nations in history in the aggregate.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Twitter on Sunday temporarily suspended the account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican U.S. Congresswoman from Georgia who has expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories online. Greene’s account was suspended “without explanation,” she said in a statement, while also condemning big tech companies for “silencing” conservative views. The 46-year-old businesswoman and political newcomer was elected to represent Georgia’s 14th District in November. She’s gained large followings on social media in part by posting incendiary videos and comments and has also embraced QAnon, a far-right U.S. conspiracy theory centered around the debunked belief that President Donald Trump is waging a secret campaign against enemies in the “deep state” and a child sex trafficking ring they say is linked to Democrats. Before noon Sunday, Greene posted a clip from an interview with a local news outlet in which she condemned Georgia election officials and expressed support for debunked theories claiming that voting machines, absentee ballots and other issues led to widespread fraud in the state during the presidential election.)

— Why Democrats demonize good GOPers too – Miranda Devine
(DIERSEN: Of course, ever-increasingly, hate-filled conservative-hating conservative-haters will use the Capitol Riot to do more and more and more to get rid of conservatives once and for all.)
https://nypost.com/2021/01/17/why-democrats-demonize-good-gopers-too-devine/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There’s a reason why blameless Republicans and Trump voters are being tarred with the same brush as the Capitol rioters. It’s not enough just to arrest and prosecute actual lawbreakers who smashed their way into to the Capitol. No, anyone who supported the president, voted for him or worked for his administration, now has to be hunted down and purged. They’re losing their jobs, having their insurance canceled, their book contracts and recording deals torn up. They are being banned from flying or banking or speaking on social media. A petition at Harvard University even demands Trump staffers have their degrees revoked. A feverish mood is afoot, evoking the spirit of McCarthyism and the Salem witch trials, in which irrationality and hysteria point fingers at the innocent. But it is not just an emotional overreaction to the frightening events of Jan. 6. It is a deliberate tactic designed to intimidate conservatives and silence their protests when the Biden administration radically remakes the country, as it has promised to do from Day One. Democrats and their allies in corporate America are preemptively taking out the opposition because they know that their prescriptions don’t work and are opposed by the majority of Americans. They will now have control of both houses of Congress and the White House and are working fast to establish one-party rule — including stacking the Supreme Court to remove the remaining check on their power, stacking the Senate by creating two new states, and stacking the nation’s demography with unchecked immigration. Dismantling border protection is exactly the worst thing to do at a time when our health system is hard-pressed coping with the coronavirus and the economy is weak. Even if Biden delays his promised implementation of sweeping immigration reform, he has signaled his intent, and caravans of hopeful souls in search of a better life already are on the move in Honduras, in what The Washington Post likes to call a “super spreader event” when reporting on any gathering involving Republicans. Nancy Pelosi also has revived her H.R. 1. election “reforms,” which failed to pass the Republican-controlled Senate in 2017 and which include such beauties as universal mail-in balloting, same-day registration, weakened voter ID requirements, early voting, doxing of donors and legalized ballot harvesting. H.R.1. is what you call pouring fuel on a fire. Pelosi also has added statehood for Washington, DC, to her progressive wish list as a “sacred” right, and who will stop her? The only levers we have left to oppose this authoritarian power grab is protest and free speech. Hence the crackdown on free speech by a partisan Big Tech oligopoly that wields the ever-present threat of arbitrary censorship over conservatives in the public square. Just as the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis was the pretext to reanimate racial division in an election year, so, too, is the Capitol riot a golden opportunity for the left to criminalize dissent. “There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed,” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson told MSNBC last week in the wake of the Capitol riot. In other words, all Trump voters are guilty by association. They are seditionists, insurrectionists and white supremacists. They deserve excommunication, deplatforming, and reputational and financial ruin. CNN’s intolerance tzar, Don Lemon, last week lumped in the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump with the Klu Klux Klan and Nazis. China-lovin’ Rep. Eric Swalwell compared Trump to Osama bin Laden. Corporate America is heeding the message. Loews over the weekend caved into Twitter activists and canceled Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s fundraiser in one of its hotels in February. Simon and Schuster already had canceled Hawley’s book contract after he voted to hold up certification of Joe Biden’s victory. Musician Ariel Pink had his recording contract canceled because he attended the Trump rally on Jan. 6, even though he says he did not march to the Capitol. Business journal Forbes warned companies that hire former Trump officials such as Kayleigh McEnany or Kellyanne Conway that they will be blacklisted. Twitter boss Jack Dorsey told his staff in a video leaked to Project Veritas that banning Trump was just the first step in his purge of Wrong Think. “This is much bigger than one account.” None of this makes discourse safer. It just drives it underground, where it becomes more toxic. But the aim is to dehumanize conservatives so that any cruelty can be inflicted on them and they are powerless to resist. “Unity Joe” Biden himself likened his political opponents, Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels last week. He has always played up his image as a consensus politician able to reach across the aisle. That vapor trail of comity is probably what propelled him to victory. On Wednesday, he will have the authority to make good on that promise. So far, it doesn’t look promising.

— Apathy Is Destroying Our Liberty – Michael Dorstewitz
https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/liberty-parler-twitter-liberty/2021/01/13/id/1005419/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, too, we’ve been slowly losing our liberty, and too many Americans don’t seem to care. The storming of the Capitol building a week ago accelerated that process beyond anything we could imagine a year ago. Conservative columnist and talk radio host Dennis Prager observed that in 1933, the Nationalist Socialists (Nazis) blamed the burning of the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament building, on Communists. They used it to drum the Communist Party out of existence and silence the voices of its members. Similarly, after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, the mainstream press, social media and Democratic leaders silenced any claims that didn’t echo the parry line — even to the point of censoring the president of the United States.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Illinois Republicans have denounced the violence in Washington, some have declined to hold Trump responsible in their public statements. U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger of the 16th District is a notable exception: He has called for Trump to be removed from office via the 25th Amendment. Jim Zay, head of the DuPage Republican Party, is another. He wrote in a Facebook post the day of the riot that “if anyone is injured or worse it will be on the hands of the president.” He was uneasy about a rift developing between hard-core Trump supporters and the rest of the Republican Party, though he hoped most would stay even if Trump tries to build an independent political movement. “We’re the party of Lincoln, we’re the party of Reagan,” Zay said. “If people think they’re going to form a third party for Donald Trump, good luck.”)

KEVIN MCCARTHY
— A Statement from House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy
https://republicanleader.house.gov/a-statement-from-house-republican-leader-kevin-mccarthy/
(FROM THE STATEMENT: “Let me be very clear: the violence, destruction, and chaos that unfolded at the Capitol on Wednesday was unacceptable, undemocratic, and un-American. When I spoke to President Trump on Wednesday, I told him he had a great responsibility to intervene to quell the mob and start the healing process for our country. Over the coming weeks we will work with law enforcement to bring anyone responsible for the violence to justice. Lawlessness and extremism have no place in our way of life. “Our country is not just divided. We are deeply hurt. The task ahead for the next Congress and incoming Biden Administration couldn’t be more momentous. But to deliver a better America for all, partisans of all stripes first must unite as Americans and show our country that a peaceful transition of power has occurred. Impeaching the President with just 12 days left in his term will only divide our country more. I have reached out to President-elect Biden today and plan to speak to him about how we must work together to lower the temperature and unite the country to solve America’s challenges. The coronavirus is still coursing through our communities, businesses and workers are facing unprecedented stress, and children are falling behind. Threats from adversaries such as Russia, China, and Iran are increasing. As leaders, we must call on our better angels and refocus our efforts on working directly for the American people. United we can deliver the peace, strength, and prosperity our country needs. Divided, we will fail. “Each passing day will offer us an opportunity to heal and grow stronger—a responsibility from which we cannot shrink. The United States remains exceptional and extraordinary, and in the coming weeks and months, we must work to recharge the light of our shining city on a hill.”)

(DIERSEN: Twitter is a utility. What if the companies and/or governments that provide your phone, internet, television, radio, electricity, water, sanitary sewer, natural gas, etc. services cut your services off to force you to disavow Trump and to disavow Trump’s supporters?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Twitter ban denied the president of his primary method of communicating with 88 million followers on a platform that he had relied on since the start of his presidency. Mr. Trump said in one of the deleted tweets, “As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.” The White House distributed his new tweets to the media on email after Twitter closed his “@POTUS” account. Allies such as campaign aide Boris Epshteyn also shared his tweets on their accounts. “Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” Mr. Trump said Friday night. “They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely. STAY TUNED!” He also called again for the federal government should eliminate Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields the social media giants from lawsuits over how they police content on their platforms. “Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230 they would not exist for long,” Mr. Trump said.)
