— Marriage and the “Success Sequence” – Micah Clark (DIERSEN: My Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious when I got married in 1978. They knew that my wife would give me even more reasons for living and even more motivation a) to pass the CPA examination on my first attempt like I did in 1979, b) earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul like I did in 1980, c) pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt like I did in 1981, and d) become a licensed CPA like I did in 1981. They knew that because of her salary, we could afford my suffering a $20,147/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO like I did in 1980.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— The plight of the unwoke – Lynne Lechter (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes paint themselves as being very woke. I should write a book about them. They paint me as being someone who has unfairly benefitted from my being White, male, Missouri Synod Lutheran, German American, conservative, Republican, American, raised in Crete, raised by a stay-at-home mother, having good health, having ancestors who have been in America for a long time, earning college degrees, earning professional certifications, earning a professional license, working for the federal government for almost 30 years, getting married, and not having children.) 
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/01/the_plight_of_the_unwoke.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Urban slang defines a person being “woke” or “wokeness” as someone being cognizant of “social justice.” Social justice, in this worldview, encompasses racism, feminism, gender fluidity, inequality, and “undocumented visitors” (illegal aliens). The very word connotes a superior state of being in which any opposing opinion is perceived as a personal affront, or even attack, and triggers the necessity for safe spaces. Opposing viewpoints are bludgeoned on college campuses and in the mainstream media as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, gun-toting, and Bible-thumping idiocies. Oh, the elitism — and blindness! The woke are really the unwoke — those with no sense of self-awareness of the hypocritical and self-aggrandizing images they actually project to the rest of us. Examples abound.)

TOWNHALL
— NowThis Isn’t Journalism – Adam Guillette
https://townhall.com/columnists/adamguillette/2020/01/18/now-this-isnt-journalism-n2559692
(FROM THE ARTICLE: NowThis and its allies are so desperate to smear President Donald Trump that they’re resorting to lies about the Holocaust. In one of the outlet’s latest propaganda pieces, NowThis sat down with a radical leftwing group of campus Jews and Palestinians and gave them an opportunity to promote their extremist views. While it’s nice to see Jews and Arabs sitting together in peace, the bloom comes off the rose when we learn that they have only come together to promote lies and hate. Perhaps the biggest lie perpetuated in the video occurred when one member of the group compared the plight of immigrants on the American border to that of Anne Frank.)

HOT AIR
— The Real “Marriage Story” Is A Lot Brighter Than Hollywood Is Letting On (DIERSEN: Many, if not most of my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, and especially those who fail/refuse to defend/advance the traditional family plank in the Illinois Republican Party platform, have never been married, are divorced, have serious marital problems, were not raised by a stay-at-home mother, have parents who are divorced, and/or are LGBTQers.)

If you are retired already, what are you doing with your time and money? I spend 10+ hours each and every day and thousands of dollars each and every year putting together and sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails each and every morning and each and every evening free of charge and without any advertising.)

My outstanding mother never attended high school and had never worked outside of the home.)

— After Stretch IRAs, What Retirement Breaks Could Congress Chop Next? A handful of proposals on limiting retirement tax breaks have been circulating in Washington for years – Laura Saunders
https://www.wsj.com/articles/after-stretch-iras-what-retirement-breaks-could-congress-chop-next-11579257004
(FROM THE ARTICLE: • Require annual payouts from Roth IRAs. Current law requires annual withdrawals from traditional IRAs for savers who are age 72 and older, but it doesn’t require them for Roth IRA owners. Ed Slott, an IRA specialist and certified public accountant, says this proposal would take away one of the biggest draws of a Roth IRA, which is payout flexibility. He also worries that it could open the door to indirect taxes, in the same way that tax-free municipal-bond income is included when calculating Social Security taxes and Medicare premiums.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-jeanne-ives-campaign-flyer-20200117-a5jpp4gb5fgh7o362up5s5t57a-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A spokeswoman for Ives, who is seeking the Republican nomination in the west and northwest suburban 6th Congressional District, said the solicited contribution amounts were “clearly (a) typo.” “We worked with this particular direct mail vendor once, and immediately severed ties with him because of errors like this,” Kathleen Murphy, communications director for Ives’ campaign, said in an email. “We are working with a professional compliance team and would never ask for a gift over the legal fundraising limit. And in fact, have returned contributions in excess of the limit already, as our (fourth quarter) filing will reflect,” Murphy said.)

— Illegal immigrants blocked at border pray for Trump’s defeat, ‘I want Trump out’ – Paul Bedard (DIERSEN: What do your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes pray for? My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes pray for more dependency on government, more dependency on charity, more LGBTQ activity, more mass/illegal immigration, more booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, more gun control, more patronage, more political affiliation discrimination, more reverse discrimination, more age discrimination, and more retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, government, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)

LAWYERS
— 3 Types Of Age Discrimination That Are Depressingly Common And How Employers Get Away With It – Michael Patrick Murphy, Jr.
https://blogs.lawyers.com/attorney/labor-and-employment/3-types-of-age-discrimination-that-are-depressingly-common-60235/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and other state and federal laws, it’s illegal for employers to discriminate against employees or job applicants because of their age. However, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), approximately 60% of surveyed older workers claimed to have experienced or witnessed age discrimination in the workplace—and 90% of those respondents said it was a common occurrence. Even though age discrimination is illegal, employers have been taking increasingly creative measures to avoid complying with the law. Here are three different forms age discrimination can take. Refusing to Call It “Firing” Your employer probably won’t come out and tell you that they’re firing you because of your age. But employers do this all the time. One way they get away with it is by calling your firing a “job elimination.” They’re not actually firing you—just eliminating your job title. But a few weeks later, they’ve reinstated the job under a different title and filled the position with a younger worker. Layoffs can also serve as a tactic for employers to let older workers go. The law requires employers to release lists of employees who were both laid off and retained, along with their ages, to prove that the layoff decisions were not based on age. But employers may not list every worker—providing an incomplete picture of their layoff strategy. Or they may fire a few younger workers just to make the optics look better. Some employers might ask older workers to leave of their own free will, and sweeten the pot with offers for early retirement. These can be very tempting—but be careful, especially if the only alternative you have is to be fired. If that’s the case, you may be looking at age discrimination. Promotion-Based Discrimination When a highly qualified older worker is denied a promotion, which is then given to a younger worker with less experience—at a lower pay grade, naturally—it’s usually a fairly clear-cut case of age discrimination.)

Further, they hint/imply/argue/shout at everyone that a) those who are White, older, healthy, heterosexual, married, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, citizens of America, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time have an unfair advantage over those who are minority, younger, non-healthy, LGBTQ, not married, veteran, non-Protestant, non-German American, non-citizen, and those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time. Further, they hint/imply/argue/shout at everyone that a) those who earn more education, more professional certifications, and more professional licenses have an unfair advantage over those who earn less education, fewer professional certifications, and fewer professional licenses and b) those who acquire more work experience have an unfair advantage over those who acquire less work experience.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/lgbt-activists-slander-the-evangelicals-for-trump-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On the third day of 2020, conservative Christian leaders met at a megachurch in Miami for an “Evangelicals for Trump” rally, launching a key part of the president’s re-election campaign. Shortly thereafter, LGBT activist groups and websites descended on the key figures of this coalition, attacking them as “hate group” leaders and “anti-LGBTQ extremists.” The LGBT magazine The Advocate dug up old statements and repeated the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to smear the evangelicals involved, citing research compiled by the activist group GLAAD. “One of the best-known among them is Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center,” Trudy Ring wrote. The SPLC fired its co-founder last year after a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal that also revealed how former employees saw themselves as “part of the con,” exaggerating hate by padding the “hate group” list and “bilking northern liberals” to cut big checks. It has faced multiple defamation lawsuits and paid millions to settle them. As for FRC, a deranged shooter targeted the organization due to the SPLC’s “hate group” accusation, which is based on false and exaggerated claims.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A preliminary security plan would greatly limit the movement of credentialed media members. Journalists would be restricted to a designated area and could only speak to senators who approached them. Under normal conditions, credentialed journalists can informally approach lawmakers in the hallways or on the way to the elevator or the Senate subway. “That’s the bread and butter of what we do here. That’s where you get that extra nugget of information,” Wire said in an interview with The Associated Press. Members of the press corps are also asking for a waiver of the traditional ban on laptops and cellphones, which would enable them to file breaking news updates from gallery seats inside the Senate chamber, but that request has apparently been rejected. The security plan would also place a magnetometer at the door of the gallery seats to scan journalists as they enter and prevent them from bringing in electronics.)

If there had been more immigration during the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, citizens of foreign countries may very well have gotten the jobs that I got.

How successful have the Trump-haters been in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county? I should write a book about the success that Trump-haters have had in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County.

AMERICAN PROSPECT
— Progressives Help Progressives—Across City Lines Local Progress, a nationwide network of left-leaning municipal elected officials, is fast becoming the strategic switchboard for America’s increasingly liberal cities. – RACHEL M. COHEN (DIERSEN: Who represents you in your municipality? Are they considering becoming a member of “Local Progress?” SEE: https://localprogress.org/ Are they a member of “Local Progress?” From what I see, members of “Local Progress” focus on a) promoting 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, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid and b) destroying those who they cannot manipulate/dominate.)
https://prospect.org/politics/progressives-help-progressives-across-city-lines/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the fall of 2017, a group of progressive city councilmembers across Texas decided to try a new strategy. Their Republican-controlled state legislature was a nightmare, preempting (and thereby repealing) every progressive ordinance that the cities enacted—but the legislature met only once every two years. What would happen if they worked together and collectively passed paid sick days while state politicians were out of session?. . .More recently, nearly 200 local elected officials from across the country signed a letter calling for the abolition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and applauded Representative Mark Pocan’s federal legislation to transfer ICE’s legitimate functions to other agencies. “Above all else, we are responsible for the safety of people in our communities,” the local officials wrote. “The presence of ICE in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, places of worship, and homes, makes this impossible.”)

The more of the following that you were, the more toxic that the work environment was: Republican, conservative, Protestant, German American, draft avoider, White, male, older, non-poor, if your ancestors had been in America for a long time, and if you had not made 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.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— If you were me, what would you do to encourage religious, conservative, and Republican leaders in Illinois to promote reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails? Tragically, many of the aforesaid reject many planks in the Republican Party platform. Most commonly, they reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks. They blacklist me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails because I support all of the aforesaid planks. Most commonly, they promote 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, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation for opposing the aforesaid. They focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate. I refuse to serve as anyone’s operative or dupe. I refuse to use GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to carry out anyone’s demands, for example, a) to elect a particular candidate in a contested Republican primary or b) to blacklist anyone. – Dave Diersen

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Maryland’s strong Democratic majority seemed far away this weekend at a conference near the State House, where Republicans discussed their priorities for 2020. During speeches Saturday by elected GOP officials and party leaders, attendees booed the costly education overhaul proposal being championed by the deep-blue General Assembly, cheered raucously for President Donald Trump and poked fun at candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. In between panels about how to reduce gun-control restrictions and limit access to abortion, dozens of the party faithful exchanged business cards, snapped selfies and commiserated over being conservative in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2 to 1 and have a veto-proof majority in both chambers of the legislature. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, a moderate in his party who has frequently criticized Trump, was not present at the conference hosted by the conservative website Red Maryland. Hogan’s spokesman said the governor was invited but could not attend “because of his schedule.”)

What will the following do to maximize the number of March 17, 2020 Republican primary ballots cast in your precinct: a) your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, b) the officers of your Republican township, ward, and/or country party organizations, c) your representative on the IRP State Central Committee, and d) the IRP officers? I will be a) hand-delivering sample ballots and campaign literature to the homes in my precinct that have one or more Republican or Independent voters and b) encouraging homeowners and businesses to display signs for the Republican candidates.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Members of the Navarro County Republican Executive Committee heard from candidates in contested races at a regular meeting Tuesday at the group’s headquarters in Corsicana. Candidates for Navarro County Sheriff, Pct. 3 Commissioner, Justice of the Peace Pct. 2 and Navarro County District Attorney introduced themselves to those in attendance. Sheriff Elmer Tanner received the endorsement of Texas Representative Cody Harris, “I’m honored to receive Harris’s support,” he said, “Cody understands and respects the job that we do.” “Sheriff Tanner worked closely with me during the 86th Legislative session, making sure I understood how legislation would affect the people of Navarro County.” The Palestine Republican said, “without question, Elmer Tanner is the right man for the job.” Tanner will face David Foreman in the March 3 primary. Those in attendance approved the appointments of four precinct chairs who filled for office but faced no primary challenge. Precinct Chairs are instrumental helping the Republican Party get out the vote. Republicans now have 23 of 30 Navarro County precincts filled. “It’s time to get out there and shake up our precincts,” said Bobby Vickery who was appointed to Pct. 404 “It’s extremely important that we contact every Republican and make sure they get out to vote,” said Navarro County Republican Chairman Eric Meyers. “Nearly 1,000 people move to Texas every day, we need to make sure Texas stays red.” Meyers also alerted party faithful about important upcoming dates in the “consequential 2020 election year.” The last day to register to vote in the Texas primary is Feb. 3. Anyone interested may now request a ballot by mail from the Navarro County Elections Administration Office. Any requests must be returned to the Elections Office by Feb. 21. Early voting for the primary election is from Feb. 18 to 28 at the Navarro County Annex building, 601 N. 13th Street in Corsicana. The Texas primary will be March 3. Navarro County residents will have several opportunities to hear from candidates in upcoming forums, and meet and greets. The Conservative Society of Navarro County, in conjunction with the Republican Women and the Republican Party of Navarro County, will host a federal candidate meet and greet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 at Republican Party Headquarters, 111 W. Third Ave. in Corsicana. The Republican Women will hold a candidate forum lunch at Republican Headquarters at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28. The Corsicana Opry/ Silver Saddle Saloon will host the Republican Party of Navarro County Candidate Forum at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11. The group is finalizing plans for its March 6, Navarro County Reagan Day Dinner. The group also voted to hold the Precinct Convention at the Navarro County Courthouse on Saturday, March 14. The County Convention will be held the following week on Saturday, March 21. Republican delegates from each of Texas’s 254 counties will meet in Houston at the state convention the week of May 11-16. The Texas state Republican convention is expected to be larger than the National Republican gathering. The national convention will be in Charlotte, North Carolina in August. All other regular reports were adopted. The next meeting of the Navarro County Executive Committee will be at party headquarters in April.)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans line up behind Ives as she looks to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten: Former U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, who lost his west suburban 6th District seat to Democrat Sean Casten in the 2018 midterms, already has endorsed Republican challenger Jeanne Ives, a former state representative, in this year’s election. But Ives says she’s racking up more high-profile GOP endorsements including: Republican National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte; the Lake County Republican Party; Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison; the conservative Club for Growth PAC; FreedomWorks, a group closely tied to the tea party movement; the House Freedom Caucus, a GOP caucus in the U.S. House; and the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List. Rich Porter, Illinois Republican National committeeman, also is backing Ives, according to her campaign. And Republicans in Illinois’ congressional delegation along with U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy hosted a fundraiser for Ives in Washington, according to Ives’ political team. Ives, of Wheaton, is facing Jay Kinzler, of Glen Ellyn, in the Republican primary while incumbent Casten, of Downers Grove, is unopposed in the primary. – LISA DONOVAN

City council members put an advisory question on the ballot even though they moved to prohibit recreational pot stores in town. While the referendum is nonbinding, several council members have said they will trust the will of the voters. If voters don’t want recreational cannabis sales, no action will be needed. But if voters say they want such stores, the council would need to reverse its ban and set zoning regulations.)

CENTER SQUARE
— Grant Wehrli bill filed in Illinois to bar private pay for public employees after Gov. J.B. Pritzker shells out $3 million for staffers – Greg Bishop 
https://www.thecentersquare.com/illinois/bill-filed-in-illinois-to-bar-private-pay-for-public/article_e563d918-330f-11ea-beb1-63b278b2e70e.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Rep. Grant Wehrli, R-Naperville, said the move sets a precedent that could make it difficult for future governors of more modest means to attract quality employees. “Governance should be now and going forward based on how we can deliver for the people of Illinois,” Wehrli said. “It should not be based on who can pay their employees the most through private dollars. It is the height of hypocrisy when the Illinois Democratic party decries outside dollars in politics and state and federal government, yet they’re silent here.” Wehrli said there’s no way to see how the private dollars are being used to pay public employees. “Are they doubling the salary? Is this a bonus for getting legislation passed? [That] would be of extreme concern, basically, that’s pay for performance when it comes to governance and that would be highly unethical,” Wehrli said. A better way, Wehrli said, would be for the supplementary pay to come out of a campaign fund, such as Michael Bloomberg did when he served New York’s mayor. That would at least show how the money flows, Wehrli said, but even that raises questions. “Running it through a campaign account would add some clarity, but not enough clarity to where I’d be OK with it,” he said. Wehrli said Pritzker’s wealth would be better spent elsewhere in state government. “We have this thing called a bills backlog, it’s been building for decades,” Wehrli said. “Maybe he just wants to write a check and clear out the bills backlog. That would be a better use of his private dollars.” As of Thursday, the state’s backlog of unpaid bills stood at $6.8 billion. Pritzker is reportedly worth about $3 billion. The governor’s office did not return messages seeking comment. Wehrli said he will file legislation to try and curb the practice, but being in the minority party, he doesn’t expect it to advance. State Sen. Jason Plummer, R-Edwardsville, filed Senate Bill 2320 this week to bar private dollars from being used for public employee salaries. That measure says no state employee “may receive monetary or other compensation from any private party for work performed within the scope of his or her employment by a state agency.” Lawmakers return to Springfield later this month.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A French court recently became the first to recognize the crime of “institutional harassment,” where managers intentionally degrade working conditions and create an anxiety-provoking climate to pressure workers to quit. . .A federal class action lawsuit filed in New York earlier this year alleges that top executives at IBM in 2014 hatched a company-wide plan to eliminate older employees through large-scale discriminatory layoffs—called “Resource Actions.” Among other things, IBM allegedly manipulated the performance review process by directing managers to reduce the annual performance ratings for older workers and then use those sham evaluation scores as a key factor to justify picking older workers to be discharged. So-called “early professional hires” and recent college graduates were exempt from the Resource Actions.)

How often do they take actions against those who share your demographics? I should write a book about elected officials in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, and America who have taken the most actions against those who share my demographics.

I would focus on their actions which are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

What do you say to RINO politicians who ever-increasingly promote 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?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: My plan to “Keep America Great” is very simple: 1) Stop exporting American soldiers to countries that hate our guts. 2) Stop importing people from countries that hate our guts. When I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, I thought this was the plan. The “America First” champion rightly assailed Barack Obama for recklessly endangering the lives of our soldiers to pursue politically driven endless wars. President Trump promised to build an effective wall on the southern border. He enacted tough travel restrictions, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, on visitors from countries whose terror-coddling governments pose national security threats. Yet, here we are at the dawn of 2020 with thousands of U.S. troops headed back to the Stone Age Middle East maw, Mexican drug cartels on the loose while our Border Patrol hands out diapers to illegal immigrants and refugees from around the world — including nearly 1,400 welcomed just last year from the very high-risk countries the Trump travel ban was supposed to block — transforming the nation without the consent of the governed. The leaky block list includes Syria, Iraq and Iran, which launched multiple missiles at U.S. airbases late Tuesday in retaliation for our deadly airstrike last week that killed Quds General Qassem Soleimani. Now, we are on heightened alert here in our homeland with authorities nervous that Hezbollah sleeper cells (which I’ve documented since writing “Invasion” in 2002) might strike from within. Some of you still wonder why I write so frequently and vehemently about our failed immigration and entrance policies. It’s because nothing matters more right now to the survival of our country than the right to determine who gets in and the ability to enforce it. As I reported last year, thanks to an executive order signed by Trump in September, local communities were given the explicit opt-in rights to stem the lucrative tide of refugees coming largely from Third World countries and jihadist breeding grounds. This Wednesday, religious “charities” that profit the most from this multi-billion-dollar racket will be in court to assert blanket, open-borders veto power over the people. The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland will hear arguments from vested refugee resettlement interests who oppose Trump’s order requiring government contractors to obtain written consent from all localities and states in which they plan to resettle refugees. The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service — three of the nine State Department partners who resettle all refugees — argue that the federal government should prioritize family reunification of foreign refugees over local control. Translation: Americans come last. The lawsuit assails the White House executive order for threatening “to systematically dismantle the organizations — including Plaintiffs — that have spent decades developing networks, expertise, and resources to carry out the American ideal of welcoming refugees.” Those “resources” come from you and me: Tax subsidies that constitute the vast majority of these nonprofit activists’ budgets. Over the past decade, according to an analysis by immigration researcher James Simpson, the three plaintiff groups have raked in the following amounts from the federal refugee resettlement program: –Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services: $471.6 million (94% from of its budget). –Church World Service: $433.3 million (72% of its budget). –Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: $186.1 million (54% of its budget). The refugee resettlement contractors, in turn, spread their massive wealth — from both public and private sources — to a galaxy of subcontractors looking to register Democratic voters, fill their pews and recruit new clients and constituents. The “Interfaith Immigration Coalition” holding a protest event after the hearing on Wednesday to support the refugee pipeline includes: Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach; Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd; U.S. Provinces; Daughters of Charity; Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries; Franciscan Action Network; Interfaith Immigration Coalition; Jewish Council for Public Affairs; Leadership Conference of Women Religious; National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd; National Council of Jewish Women; Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Rise for Refuge; Sisters of Mercy of the Americas – Institute Leadership Team; T’ruah; The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights; The United Church of Chr! ist; and We Are All America. Thanks to pressure from these groups with bottomless budgets and clout, 18 Republican — yes, Republican — governors are also standing against Trump and self-determination in favor of increased refugee settlement, including: Doug Ducey of Arizona, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, Eric Holcomb of Indiana, Kim Reynolds of Iowa, Brad Little of Idaho, Mike Parsons of Missouri, Larry Hogan of Maryland, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, Doug Burgum of North Dakota, Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Bill Lee of Tennessee, Gary Herbert of Utah, Jim Justice of West Virginia and Phil Scott of Vermont. The names must be named and the sellouts must be shamed, especially as war breaks out on all fronts. What’s the point of sending young American troops to fight enemies “over there” if we are welcoming them by the tens and hundreds of thousands over here?)
