— Coronavirus is being used to suppress press freedoms globally – Sara Fischer (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, all government and political news and commentary is misinformation, disinformation, and/or fake news except for the government and political news and commentary that they put out or bless.)
https://www.axios.com/coronavirus-press-freedom-e11cd2d3-c1c3-4b67-b985-102c882a223d.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the U.S., President Trump has continued to belittle the press for its coverage of the virus at live press conferences and on Twitter. On Monday, President Trump deflected blame onto the Washington Post when asked about allegations that China — as well as Russia and Iran — is spreading coronavirus misinformation, saying “every country does it.” Trump last week attacked NBC News reporter Peter Alexander during a live television briefing after being asked what he would say to Americans that were worried about the coronavirus, a question Alexander later said he thought was a “softball,” or an opportunity for the president to answer an easy question. Between the lines: The president’s actions, some fear, give credence to leaders abroad and locally in the U.S. to continue to attack press that they don’t like. Case-in-point: Over the weekend Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, an ally to President Trump, blocked a reporter from attending a coronavirus press briefing. Days earlier, that reporter had asked if briefings could be moved online to protect reporters’ health.
DeSantis has been criticized by Democrats over his response to the coronavirus.)

— Kevin McCarthy’s opponent says blatant racism is “definitely” a reason to take him down The House minority leader has become a total Trump sycophant. In California, Kim Mangone thinks she can beat him – MATTHEW ROZSA (DIERSEN: In America today, to hint/imply/argue/shout that someone is a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, or bigot is like hinting/implying/arguing/shouting in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s that someone is a Jew. Needless-to-say, I should sue those who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, or bigot. They include past and present leaders of organizations and governments in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican to give the standing to destroy individuals, to destroy organizations, to destroy companies, and to destroy governments that are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)

If I sought a government office, for example, Wheaton West District City Counsel, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would stress that I get a $54,168/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $18,000+/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that the aforesaid is grossly excessive and that the federal government grossly overpaid me. Further, they would stress that I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, heterosexual, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Crete resident 1948-1972, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Further, they would stress that I oppose the promotion of 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. Further, they would stress that I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999 and the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. My critics/opponents in Wheaton are extremely nasty and have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout. I should write a book about the aforesaid who claim to religious, conservative, and/or Republican. Better yet, I should sue them.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LGBTQ+ community has always played a vital part in this nation’s history and success. We are not a minor population subset. We are a powerful constituency made even more impactful because we cross racial, ethnic, religious, income, gender and many other intersectional identities. An accurate Census count of our community is critical to ensuring programs that address our unique needs are fairly funded. It will also highlight the importance of our political voice which, in a democracy like ours, is critical. If we are not counted then we won’t count. It’s that simple. This year, for the first time in census history, same-sex couples will be able to declare their existence on the census form. While imperfect and incomplete, it represents an important step towards recognizing our community. We will continue to work on future Census, so that everyone in our community are counted and counted for who they are. But for now, we need to seize the moment and have our voices be heard.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The mainstream media is desperate to turn the coronavirus scare into President Donald Trump’s Hurricane Katrina,” wrote Guillette. “It means they’re motivated to overhype this story.” President George W. Bush’s response to the 2005 storm has been widely criticized. . .But what Trump faces today is a far more generalized sense that the government has been slow to respond even in the face of an obvious danger. Indeed, the NPR/PBS/Marist poll found more Americans disapprove of the president’s handling of the pandemic than approve by a 49%-44% margin.)

https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2020/march/neither-refugees-nor-asylum-seekers-the-real-reason-these-migrants-are-coming-to-the-us-illegally
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Leaving to “Keep Up with the Joneses” “The people who die here die of old age in bed,” Bensman said. “So you can’t argue that people are fleeing this place. But what you can say is that people are leaving this place to keep up with the Joneses.” “People are telling us about something entirely different as a motive for going to the United States, and it has to do with envy. What I mean by envy, particularly, is house envy,” Bensman continued. “American dollars being sent back to the families here have been poured into huge, beautiful houses.” Guatemala receives more than ten billion dollars a year in remittances from its citizens who are living in the United States and sending their money back home. And a lot of that money – at least in this town – is being used for home construction. The people that are working in the United States send money to their family members and what few men are left in this town are very busy constructing houses. Two homes we saw under construction are 2,500 square feet. Many Guatemalans appear to be achieving the American dream by moving the American dream back to Guatemala. The Dream? To Build a Nice House Back in Guatemala Marcus Domingo’s sons are in Missouri, working jobs where they’re paid “under the table” and sending enough money home to build both of these houses. “See, the problem here is there aren’t any economic resources, no jobs for us, it’s only in the United States where there’s work that pays enough to do this because Guatemala is a poor country,” Domingo said. “Right now our dream is for each of us to build our own house so we can have a good life, buy a little piece of land, and put a little money in the bank so that we can better our situation. Everyone sees that some are building all this and everyone became preoccupied with fighting to have one for themselves,” he said.)

I do not do that because my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and Illinois Republican Party (IRP) have been so successful in painting any recommendation or endorsement by me as being THE KISS OF DEATH for candidates. Further, the aforesaid do everything that they can to suppress the number of Republican primary ballots cast in my precinct because the more ballots that are cast, the greater the weighted vote that I have in MTRO, DCRCC, and IRP leadership elections. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. – Dave Diersen

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— FROM THE ARTICLE: Voter turnout overall, however, is expected to drop. And conventional wisdom says that generally favors party-backed candidates and those with strong field organizations, potentially giving Rep. Dan Lipinski and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx more of a leg-up. There’s a lot going on and your crystal ball and tea leaves are shrugging. But we can tell you five contests worth watching: . .Oberweis v. Rezin: Those are the two names to watch in this heated Republican primary that will decide who competes against freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in November. Jim Oberweis and Sue Rezin have been feuding in recent days, ever since Rezin has filed a federal election complaint accusing Oberweis of employing a scheme to circumvent campaign finance rules. Along with the unpredictability of the coronavirus, this race has five other candidates in the hunt. So anything can happen. – Shia Kapos)

— FROM THE ARTICLE: EARLY VOTING NUMBERS in Chicago and Cook County were up going into today’s election. Chicago saw early voting rise 22.5 percent from 2016, according to the Chicago Board of Elections, and most of the increase came Monday. Early voting this year totaled 171,709, compared with 140,148. On Monday alone, 25,781 voters cast ballots, compared to 9,821 on the day prior to Election Day 2016. In the surrounding suburbs, early voting rose 46 percent, from 114,021 in 2016 to 166,613 this year, according to the Cook County Clerk’s Office. The reason: Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and other elected officials pounded the drum for voters to get to the polls early to help decrease the potential for crowds during the coronavirus outbreak. – Shia Kapos

DAILY CALLER
— Tucker Carlson: Shutting Down Economy Poses ‘Its Own Kind Of Public Health Risk’ – SCOTT MOREFIELD (DIERSEN: To defeat Trump, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs do everything that they can to destroy America’s economy.)
https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/16/tucker-carlson-shutting-down-economy-health-risk/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News host Tucker Carlson struck a balanced approach between epidemiologists who would argue for shutting everything down to fight the coronavirus pandemic and those concerned that an economic recession and even depression could pose “its own kind of public health risk.” Acknowledging the “major threat to the country” that coronavirus poses, Carlson pointed out the fact that there is “no clear consensus on how the country should respond.” “That should not surprise you,” said the Fox News host on Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “People of good faith are working toward a couple of different goals tonight which at times collide with one another.” While the “first obligation” is always public safety and should be accomplished if possible, Carlson pointed out that protecting the economy should also be considered. “At the same time though, we need to protect our economy, and it’s not just something that Wall Street cares about, to be totally clear,” he said. “Economic decline is dangerous for everyone, especially at the bottom of the economy. It’s a legitimate human concern. It’s not just financial, it’s about families.” The “two imperatives” can “often conflict,” the Fox News host contended. “So if you ask an epidemiologist what we ought to do next, the answer is simple: shut it down, close every public space until the virus passes.” “From a public health standpoint, that makes sense, but what would be the consequences of doing that?” he asked. “Millions and millions of people would lose their jobs, some of them for good. We would enter a severe recession with mass unemployment and it could get worse from there. It’s not a joke, that could happen. You would see an awful lot of people in poverty in middle America and that poses its own kind of public health risk. Poor countries are never healthy countries. If you want great health care, you’ve got to pay for it and you have to have money to do so.” Any proper response “requires balance” and is a “complex question” with “no obvious answers.” Later in the monologue, Carlson warned against printing cheap money and eventually entering a situation where the U.S. “becomes Zimbabwe.” “It’s missing the point anyway,” he said. “The real imperative is saving jobs. For government bureaucrats and administrators and corporate H.R. directors, a month out of the office constitutes a vacation, but for the classes below, it could be the beginning of a long spiral, a real one. Of waiters, bartenders, retail workers, huge parts of the service industry on which we are dependent could see their income dropped to zero and not come back.” Carlson called the “guaranteed basic income” proposed by Utah Sen. Mitt Romney a “well-meaning” idea but in actuality “decadent and foolish.” “Name a place that’s become happier and more prosperous under a scheme like that,” he said before lauding the German system that allows employers to place their workers on “reduced hours” with the government making up the difference.)
