https://patch.com/illinois/naperville/best-case-scenario-august-peak-virus-dupage-county
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If severe control measures including strict social distancing are not put in place, coronavirus infections could top 210,000 in DuPage County by early May — 23 percent or more of the population. That’s the conclusion of Columbia University researchers as reported by the New York Times, which compiled maps showing the estimated spread of the virus in every county in America under varying scenarios for control measures. Under the best-case scenario, including strict imposition of measures like closing schools, banning mass gatherings, and testing and quarantining sick people and their contacts, the peak of infection could be pushed past July 31, with as few as 9,000 cases — just 1 percent of the DuPage County population. But even in a scenario falling somewhere between these two extremes, the number of infections could top 160,000 by the middle of June, about 18 percent of the population, the researchers concluded.)

— As advertising dries up amid coronavirus shutdown, Washington news outlets lay off staff – Katherine Khashimova Long
https://www.seattletimes.com/business/local-business/as-advertising-dries-up-amid-coronavirus-shutdown-washington-news-outlets-lay-off-staff/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Coronavirus has infected Washington’s media ecosystem. The statewide shutdown of most businesses and a halt to events, ordered to slow the virus’s spread, have dried up advertising revenues at news outlets across the state. Layoffs and furloughs have followed, putting additional pressure on the remaining reporters and editors, who are already working overtime — and usually working from home — to feed the public’s need for news about the virus. Almost no paper in Washington has remained unscathed.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Media readership and viewership is soaring as citizens seek life-or-death information about the coronavirus: Where to get tested? Does my hospital have enough ventilators? Is it safe to go outside? But the accompanying economic decline is killing off advertising – for restaurants, cars, travel, entertainment – and other support that has kept many news organizations going. For some, the events of the past few weeks have already proved too much for their fragile existence. Alternative weeklies have stopped printing. Local dailies are laying off staff at already decimated newsrooms. Many others, including digital-only newsrooms, are hanging on by a thread. It’s happening around the world: Newspapers in Australia and Britain announced in the past few days that they were going out of business or suspending print publication. “Journalists are essential in this moment,” Craig Aaron, president and co-CEO of Free Press, a Washington-based advocacy nonprofit, told me in an interview. “We need to keep reporters working, and we have to do it now.”)

State Senator Steve Stadelman of Rockford has introduced Senate Bill 3457, the Local Journalism Task Force Act, that has been referred to the Senate Commerce and Economic Development Committee. The act creates a task force that would conduct a comprehensive study relative to communities under served by local journalism in the state. It would review all aspects of local journalism including the adequacy of press coverage of communities, the ratio of residents to media outlets, the history of local news in the state, print and digital business models for media outlets, the impact social media has on local news, and explore public policy to improve the sustainability of local journalism through either private or nonprofit solutions.)

Failing that, they want government to control me and to control my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. That is, they want the federal government (Trump), Illinois (Brady & Durkin & Grant), DuPage County (Cronin), Milton Township (Heidorn), and Wheaton (Suess & Robbins) to control me and to control my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Failing that, they want the Republican National Committee (Trump), Illinois Republican Party (Schneider & Grogan), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (Keller), and Milton Township Republican Organization (LeVan) to control me and to control my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/trudeaus-plan-to-control-free-press-scares-the-hell-out-of-me-conservative-politician
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Canadian conservative politician says the Trudeau government’s report recommending a “media registry” for news outlets in Canada scares the “hell out of me.” Martin Shields, a Conservative member of Parliament for Bow River, Alberta, told the Standing Committee of Canadian Heritage during a February 26 meeting that parts of the report are opposed to current Canadian law. Shields is a member of the committee. “From the Broadcast telecommunications report there are words in there: fair, reasonable, trusted, accurate, reliable […] those words scare the hell out of me. They’re subjective, and they’re in that report in a number of places,” said Shields in comments (listen to audio track at minute 16:33:13) directed to Heritage Minister of Canada Steven Guilbeault in questions about the controversial Liberal government report, titled, “Canada’s communications future: Time to act.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Media Research Center (MRC), a media watchdog in the United States, told LifeSiteNews that the report behind the Trudeau government’s call for requiring news websites and social media to obtain a government license to operate in Canada was “terrifying.” “Canada was one of the Allies that defeated fascism. Canadian soldiers fought for freedom and now the Canadian government seems eager to take that away,” said Media Research Center (MRC) Culture Vice President Dan Gainor. “Watching an ally, a neighbor and a friend talk about regulating the free press shows where the far left wants to take, not just Canada, but any nation they control,” he added.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Conservative party of Canada barred pro-life and pro-family advocate Richard Décarie from running as a candidate for the party’s leadership. Over the weekend, Décarie took to Twitter to announce that he was disallowed by the “unelected” Conservative Party of Canada’s Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC), to run as a leadership candidate. Pro-life organization Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) says Saturday’s disqualification of Décarie as a conservative party leadership candidate, “reeks of corruption,” adding that it is “positively outraged” about the “undemocratic actions” of the selection committee.)

WASHINGTON POST
— Trump administration orders four Chinese news outlets in U.S. to reduce staffs – Carol Morello (DIERSEN: GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails promote the Republican Central Committee (RNC) platform and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform, but needless-to-say, GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are not an “organ” of the RNC, IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), or Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) and GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are not “propaganda” for the RNC, IRP, DCRCC, or MTRO. Neither the RNC, IRP, DCRCC, nor MTRO a) pay me anything, b) help me put the emails together or send them out, or c) encourage anyone to read the emails. I should write a book about those who paint themselves as being operatives or as dupes for the RNC, IRP, DCRCC, and/or MTRO who do everything that they can a) to stop me from putting the emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading the emails.) 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/trump-administration-orders-four-chinese-news-outlets-in-us-to-reduce-staffs/2020/03/02/b532fea6-5c9d-11ea-b29b-9db42f7803a7_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The action comes on the heels of a State Department decision on Feb. 18 requiring five Chinese news organizations considered organs of the government to register as foreign missions and provide the names of employees. China responded by expelling three Beijing-based Wall Street Journal reporters, condemning as “racist” an essay that ran on the paper’s opinion page criticizing China’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. Senior State Department officials said the decision to cap the number of Chinese nationals working for the designated “propaganda outlets” in the United States at 100 overall, down from 160, reflected growing concern of a crackdown on press freedoms for both Chinese and foreign journalists. “For years the government of the PRC has imposed increasingly harsh surveillance, harassment and intimidation against American and other foreign journalists in China,” said one official, speaking on the condition of anonymity under State Department rules and using the acronym for the People’s Republic of China. “President Trump has made clear that Beijing’s restrictions on foreign journalists are misguided. He’s also made clear that the U.S. will establish long overdue reciprocity in our relations with China.”)

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.)

— Trump’s budget is simultaneously austere and reckless – Editorial (DIERSEN: How did you gain your knowledge about how the federal government operates? I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $101,176-$131,532/year. I worked on audits of federal financial institution regulators for almost 9 years, on audits of IRS for 3 years, and on audits of many other federal agencies, including Railroad Retirement Board, Department of Defense, U.S. Postal Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Immigration and Naturalization Service, General Service Administration, Federal Highway Administration, Department of Labor, Federal Aviation Administration, Veteran Administration, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Department of Health and Human Services, for almost 6 years. I worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. I worked for the Post Office as a part time carrier/clerk for almost 3 years at the GS-4 Step 1-3 levels, currently $16.64-$17.75/hour. I learned a lot about federal court procedures as an active member in a class action lawsuit and as the plaintiff in two lawsuits. I learned a lot about arbitration procedures as a grievant four grievances and as a Financial Regulatory Authority arbitrator since 1998).

https://www.news-journalonline.com/news/20200211/volusia-republican-dominance-gap-between-gop-democrats-growing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The gap between Republicans and Democrats in Volusia County is now more than 7,000 and growing, as the GOP’s ground game and the demographics of who’s moving to the Daytona Beach area are contributing factors to a reddening county. But for Sunshine State voters who want a say, there is a significant deadline approaching. They must be registered as a Democrat or a Republican by next Tuesday, Feb. 18, in order to vote on March 17. Florida remains a closed-primary state. For presidential preference primaries, NPAs have no say. In Volusia County, more than 3 in 10 registered voters are ineligible to vote for President Trump, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg or anyone else in March. That’s in large part because considerably more and more Floridians are not signing up with the parties.)

https://www.nprillinois.org/post/stories-enslaved-illinois#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Contrary to what we’ve been told and taught, Illinois was not a free state. Slavery and indentured servitude —slavery by another name — were legal here from the early 1700s until 1863. Blacks (and Native Americans early on) were bought, sold, auctioned, kidnapped, indentured, punished, controlled, gifted and taxed as property in the Land of Lincoln.)

FOX NEWS
— Can Mitt Romney actually be expelled from the Republican Party? – Tyler Olson (DIERSEN: In Illinois, the more planks in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform that you support, the more likely that Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO party leaders will expel you.) 
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/can-mitt-romney-actually-be-expelled-from-the-republican-party
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The U.S. political system may be run by two major parties, but compared with other countries, those parties have very little control over the positions espoused and votes cast by their members. The Republican National Committee has nothing in its rules about expelling an individual member from the party. In fact, while it is active as a campaign arm of the GOP and provides guidance to state parties and individual members on the general direction of the party, the RNC typically only has full control over the national party convention it hosts every four years. Most of its rules have to do with filling various party offices, delegate selection for the national convention and the procedure by which its convention runs. The only rule the RNC has regarding support for individual candidates bans it from supporting candidates in contested primaries and stipulates that someone running for another party’s nomination cannot be recognized as the GOP nominee. The Utah Republican Party does have a provision for expelling candidates from party membership, but it would not apply to Romney. A rule in the Utah GOP’s by-laws mandates that candidates running for office as a Republican have to sign an agreement saying they support the state party’s platform with a list of any platform stances they disagree with. Candidates who do not sign the agreement “will automatically forfeit their Party membership two days following the State designated candidate filing-period deadline.”)

She is not the Speaker of the Democrats, but of the People’s House.” Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) tweeted that he introduced a resolution to censure Pelosi.)

If I had been a Democrat, the Democrats who ran GAO a) would not have forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) would not have given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, c) would not have always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, d) would have promoted me beyond GS-13, e) would not have gotten rid of my mentor in 1987, f) would have assigned me to audits of IRS, and g) would not have forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— The Billion-Dollar Disinformation Campaign to Reelect the President How new technologies and techniques pioneered by dictators will shape the 2020 election – McKay Coppins (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, all government and political news and commentary is disinformation except for the government and political news and commentary that they put out or bless. They focus on destroying individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that they cannot manipulate/dominate. I should write a book about my critics/opponents. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican to give them standing to destroy those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)

The Chicago Tribune has treated the following extremely well: those who 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.)

EDITOR & PUBLISHER
— Should Journalists Take Part in Political Movements? – Evelyn Mateos (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, you cannot be a journalist if you state that you are a Republican, let alone, serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. As everyone knows, virtually all journalists are Democrats, Libertarians, or Greens, but they fail/refuse to acknowledge that. I should write a book about my critics/opponents who a) glorify, praise, and pander to journalists who are Democrat, Libertarian, or Green and b) do everything that they can to discredit me, to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and to stop everyone from reading those emails.)

— ‘Just go ahead. Let’s do this.’ Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg takes on protester at Chicago fundraiser. – BILL RUTHHART (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my “Republican” critics/opponents who hint/imply/argue/shout that I should be barred from promoting, attending, and reporting on Republican political events. Better yet, I should sue them. They hint/imply/argue/shout that my promoting, attending, and reporting on such events causes Republican candidates to lose elections.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/elections/ct-pete-buttigieg-protest-chicago-fundraiser-20200125-schmhxuplvfvdatdmh4rebibc4-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The presidential hopeful replied, “I respect your activism, but sometimes love is not expressed by interruption. Sometimes love is expressed in a different way.” Buttigieg then offered a common political tactic to encourage a protester to quiet down — he promised to meet afterward. The protester remained undeterred, shouting some more. That prompted a campaign donor to yell, “You’re not the only one in the room!” After the disruption went on for more than three minutes, Buttigieg finally relented, “You know what? Just go ahead. Let’s do this.” The protester, who identified himself as queer and nonbinary but did not give a name, brought up the South Bend police shooting death last summer of a black robbery suspect, Eric Logan, by a white police officer. The shooting, which the officer’s body camera and dashcam failed to record, remains under investigation. “Mayor Pete, as somebody who says you want to unify communities, as someone who says they want to follow the rules of the road, there are police officers in South Bend who kill people. What’s his name Logan …” the protester said, trying to recall the name of the shooting victim. “Not what’s his name,” a visibly perturbed Buttigieg said. “His name is Eric Logan.” “There’s so many, I can’t keep track anymore,” the protester shot back. “That’s false,” Buttigieg replied. Then, finally, came the question: “How can we trust you will show up for queer and trans people and people of color when there were eight community meetings in South Bend about a police officer who killed someone in your community and you did not go to them?” Buttigieg replied by noting he set up the series of community meetings with “rank-and-file officers to elected leaders to some of my harshest critics, and people who have been in my administration all along” to “empower the community” to help come up with solutions for better policing in South Bend.)

CENTRAL ILLINOIS PROUD
— Pompeo lashes out at journalist; NPR defends its reporter – AP (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Since 2005, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have demonized me, denigrated, me, and condemned be as being like Jeff Gannon. Since 2005, they have viciously used against me what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and White House Correspondent Jeff Gannon. SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News They paint me as being a clone of Jeff Gannon and even worse things. Ever since I became a GOPUSA reporter in 2000, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I ask bad questions at press conferences and share privileged information with reporters that have caused Republican candidates to be defeated and even worse things. Of course, I should sue my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I should write a book about activists, candidates, elected officials, and party leaders in Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but a) who do NOT want me to know about their press conferences, b) who do NOT want me to attend their press conferences, c) who do NOT want me to ask questions during their press conferences, d) who do NOT want me to speak with other reporters, e) who have barred me from attending their press conferences, f) who have had me thrown out of their press conferences, and/or g) who do not want me to report on their press conferences.)
