SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
— 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).

DAYTONA BEACH NEWS JOURNAL
— Volusia Republican dominance: Gap between GOP, Democrats growing – Mark Harper (DIERSEN: What percent of the voters in your precinct, municipal district, municipality, township, and county a) unethically cast Republican primary ballots to do whatever damage that they can to the Republican Party and b) vote for Democrats in general elections?)
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.)

— Stories Of The Enslaved In Illinois – TARA MCCLELLAN MCANDREW (DIERSEN: When did your ancestors come to Illinois? Mine came to Chicago in 1844. Sooner or later, if not already, the longer that your ancestors have been in Illinois, the more that Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs will demand that you pay more reparations, that is, that you pay more of the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion. Further, the more of the following that you are, that more reparations that they will demand you to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, and draft avoider.) 
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.”)

— Republicans take action against Nancy Pelosi for tearing up speech at State of the Union “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” – Carlos Garcia (DIERSEN: Who has torn up your speeches, constructively, if not literally? I should write a book about those who have constructively torn up my speeches.) 
https://www.theblaze.com/news/republicans-take-action-against-pelosi
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) tweeted that he had filed an ethics complaint against the Democratic leader. “Her conduct was beneath the dignity of the House, and a potential violation of law (18 USC 2071),” he tweeted. “Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable.” And he wasn’t the only one. Rep. Kay Granger (R-Tex.) also introduced a resolution criticizing Pelosi for her act. “Speaker Pelosi’s actions last night were appalling and shameful,” read a statement from Granger. “Regardless of her personal feelings, she had a responsibility to conduct herself with civility as the presiding officer representing the House of Representatives. 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.)

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.)

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.)

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/jan/07/ivanka-trump-ces-technology-las-vegas

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ivanka Trump faced a backlash for her lack of tech qualifications from industry figures ahead of her speech at a big annual technology industry show in Las Vegas. . .But the decision to give her the opportunity has invited scathing criticism, especially from women in the tech industry. The Women Who Tech group on Facebook expressed their displeasure at CES’ decision to invite Trump. Investor Elisabeth Fullerton wrote: “This is an insult to women in technology. We did hard times in university, engineering, math, and applied sciences. This is what extreme privilege and entitlement get you. It’s not what you know it’s who you know I guess.“ Tech analyst Carolina Milanesi expressed her displeasure in an op-ed published in Forbes. “The reason for my upset is rooted in the fact that there are many more women who are in tech and are entrepreneurs who could run circles around Trump on how technology will impact the future of work,” Milanesi said.)

— Who Must Protect the Ukraine-Trump Whistleblower? – Stephen M. Kohn (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, I blew the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My Democrat superiors took adverse actions against me because they knew that I was not “protected.” They knew that overwhelmingly, those who dominated the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) were anti-conservative and favored political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. I should write a book about those who have dominated the IRP since 1966.) 
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/who-must-protect-ukraine-trump-whistleblower
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ICWPA anti-retaliation law is not limited simply to preventing whistleblowers from being fired. The law defines the types of “adverse action” the President must shield whistleblowers from, including “any change in working conditions.” In the case of the Ukrainian “quid pro quo” whistleblower, the catastrophic impact on the whistleblower’s ability to perform his or her job duties that would be triggered by violating his right to confidentiality is obvious. This would include undermining his or her ability to work oversees, be promoted to a covert agent (if not one already), or effectively interact with employees in the White House. Furthermore, breaching the confidentiality of whistleblowers is well established as an “adverse action” under whistleblower law. Federal courts and administrative agencies as divergent as the SEC and Department of Labor have ruled that revealing the name of a whistleblower is an adverse action. Anyone with experience working with whistleblowers knows that once their identity is revealed, their working conditions will never be the same, and they will have a target on their back for the rest of their careers.)

https://www.denverpost.com/2019/12/26/weld-county-marijuana-campaign/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: County officials started brainstorming this summer after the health department noticed youth marijuana and vaping rates were increasing along with car crashes, Aakko said. Those factors, combined with what the county found to be a lower perception of risk around marijuana, helped convince health officials that something needed to be done. “We wanted to get out there that there are consequences to heavy marijuana use and certainly when you get behind the wheel and drive,” Aakko said. Marijuana industry experts said it’s true that there are some harms and risks to marijuana.)

GALLUP
— How Much Does the World Trust Journalists? – ZACC RITTER (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, you can be a journalist or a reporter ONLY if you claim to be non-partisan. However, beyond overwhelmingly, those journalist and reporters who claim to be non-partisan promote the Democrat, Libertarian, and/or Green party platforms.) 
https://news.gallup.com/opinion/gallup/272999/world-trust-journalists.aspx

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Another potential source of distrust in journalists is political polarization. In the United States, trust in the mass media, broadly, has fallen from 68% in 1972 to 41% today. Similarly, a recent Gallup-Knight report found that trust in U.S. local media declines for people who perceive a large gap between their political ideology and the perceived ideology of local news organizations. While trust in the media and trust in journalists differ, the two concepts are related enough to suspect a relationship between political polarization and trust in journalists may exist around the world. Political polarization — measured as the extent to which differences of opinions on major political issues in society exist by country-level experts and part of the Varieties of Democracy project — is strongly associated with less trust in journalists. As the graph shows, the more politically polarized a country is, the less trust the public tends to have in journalists.)

According to them, I saved more because unlike them, a) I have been undeservedly healthy, b) I undeservedly avoided the draft, c) I was undeservedly grossly overpaid by the federal government, d) my wife has income, e) my wife and I undeservedly gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents, e) I have not given lots of money to churches, and/or f) I undeservedly benefitted from my ancestors’ discrimination against minorities and against females.)

— Democrats Who Flipped Seats in 2018 Have a 2020 Playbook: Focus on Drug Costs House Democrats in key swing districts hope the debate over rising costs will give them a decisive advantage next year, especially in suburbs where President Trump remains unpopular. – Jennifer Steinhauer
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/24/us/politics/prescription-drug-costs-democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The president has been playing Ping-Pong,” said Representative Lauren Underwood, Democrat of Illinois. “He stood in the House chamber and asked us for the authority to negotiate drug prices, and we delivered, and he walked away.” Health care, Ms. Underwood said, “is central” to her re-election campaign. She has written 30 pieces of legislation this year, much of it health care related, like a bill signed Monday by Mr. Trump that was designed to make a cheaper generic form of insulin available to consumers more quickly.)

WASHINGTON POST
— It was the year of ‘OK boomer,’ and the generations were at each other’s throats – Karen Heller (DIERSEN: While I worked for GAO 1980-1997, my Democrat superiors promoted age discrimination, that is, “up-or-out,” big time so that they could promote their employees who were Democrat, minority, and/or female. They got rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: This year it became “OK” to be ageist. It became acceptable to digitally flick off your elders or young’uns on social media, to respond “OK boomer” or “OK millennial,” when, in truth, the people being addressed were often far from okay. . .While many people — though certainly not all — try to be more sensitive about race, orientation and heritage, ageist tropes ran rampant. “Age-based prejudice is the last acceptable form of prejudice,” says New York University’s Michael North, who studies ageism in the workplace. “People are making age-based generalizations and stereotypes that you wouldn’t be able to get away with about race or background. Insert some sort of racial or ethnic group, or ‘OK Woman,’ and it wouldn’t go over too well.”)

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. However, the federal government would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me and instead, would have promoted me into its Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old in 1988 if I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female.)
