FOX ILLINOIS
— Why are some businesses essential, and others not? – Jakob Emerson (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, my Democrat, Libertarian, Green, and RINO critics/opponents are furious that so far, they have not been able to use coronavirus to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I expect that they are charging me with spreading false information about coronavirus, and that therefore, Pritzker should shut me down. Who would come to my defense if Pritzker shut me down?) 
https://foxillinois.com/news/local/why-are-some-businesses-essential-and-others-not
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite the potential for disagreement, some labor attorneys said there is no legal recourse available for closed businesses to argue they are essential. “The practical answer is, where you going to go?” Baker said. “The courts are closed. I think the real question is, how enforceable is the executive order?” Sangamon County Sheriff Jack Campbell said his department has not been forced to close any nonessential businesses, but has the authority to do so. “We are not looking to complicate people’s lives and these business owners,” Campbell said. “We understand the predicament they are in and we certainly feel for them. But the order is the order, and we do have the teeth in it to charge someone with a misdemeanor if necessary, but we will do our best to avoid that.” Campbell said any businesses unsure of their status will be treated with discretion. “There could be some businesses that fall within the gray area, and we certainly are not immediately going to shut them down,” Campbell said. The Springfield Police Department also said they have not had to shut down any businesses involuntarily.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/virginia-house-passes-redistricting-amendment-despite-democratic-leadership-disapproval
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The House voted 54-46 to approve the resolution after it rejected a substitution proposed by Del. Marcus Simon, D-Falls Church. The substitution would have added language designed to further prevent gerrymandering, especially racial gerrymandering, but it also would have restarted the clock on the amendment process and prolonged it. . .Del. Marcia Price, D-Newport News, said that the commission should be required to reflect the demographics of Virginia and that the resolution should include language to prevent racial gerrymandering.)

https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-04-02/parties-race-adapt-politicking-pandemic
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A perceived advantage the Trump campaign has in this new territory could prove fragile. Trump’s operatives have built an intimidating and costly digital machine around unprecedented social media micro-targeting. It is fueled by a conservative media ecosystem that reliably draws in masses of voters who help amplify Trump’s message. That ecosystem is showing signs of strain, however, as voters seek out reliable information about the virus, which some of the leading outlets on the right failed to provide when they initially dismissed its danger. Republicans are now bulking up their digital infrastructure. Republican National Committee volunteers made 1.4 million voter contacts during last Saturday’s “National Day of Action,” using a phone script that starts by asking voters about their health and offers information about medical-care resources before they begin detailing Trump’s efforts in the pandemic. The GOP’s chief volunteer-training program, the Trump Victory Leadership Initiative, has gone virtual and hasn’t slowed in the process. There were 312 events that trained 1,390 volunteers during its first week online.)

— The voters behind Trump’s higher approval ratings – TRIP GABRIEL AND LISA LERER (DIERSEN: What drives your approval rating up or down where you live? From what I see, the biggest single factor is how those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout where you live treat you and treat those who share your demographics. Everyone sees how those who lead your municipal district, municipality, township, county, and Illinois treat you and those who share your demographics. I should write a book about how the following have treated me and those who share my demographics: past and present leaders of Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, etc.)

Here’s what he had to say: “We’re just trying to adjust on the fly and figure out what we’re doing. Business is probably 10% of what it was before. We had to lay off about 40 people. We’re getting a lot of people [ordering curbside] and people have been very supportive. They support small business in this community very well I think.”)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— What Are Gov. Pritzker’s Priorities? – David E. Smith (DIERSEN: What do your priorities include? My priorities continue to include putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email each and every morning and each and every evening. Since 2004, those emails have included links to more than 362,370 articles and information about many upcoming events.)
https://illinoisfamily.org/politics/what-are-gov-pritzkers-priorities/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the midst of the COVID-19 craziness, it is alarming to recognize there are many who are willing to use our current health crisis for their own gain and/or agenda. As these snollygosters and media types grandstand, I cannot help but think of Rahm Emanuel’s infamous quote, “never let a crisis go to waste.” Ironically, Emanuel first used that phrase in 2008 during the nation’s financial crash and then again last week in response to our nation’s coronavirus emergency. Is it a repackaging of one of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, in which he writes “in the arena of action a threat or a crisis becomes almost a precondition to communication”? I’ll let you decide. The truth is, the board and staff here at IFI are deeply disturbed to hear the incessant petty partisan criticisms of the Trump Administration by political leaders and media pundits who only seem interested in stoking anxiety and exacerbating division among the American people. In that regard, Illinois’ Governor JB Pritzker has made a name for himself as one of the nation’s chief nitpickers over the last several weeks. In his first fourteen months as CEO of the state of Illinois, Gov. Pritzker hasn’t pursued policy solutions that would have helped Illinois prepare for a pandemic. Gov. Pritzker hasn’t tried to bolster Illinois’ rainy-day fund, which is now vitally needed to purchase respirators and other medical equipment. In fact, Illinois remains disadvantaged because of the billions of dollars in unpaid bills dragging us down. Instead, like a petulant child, Pritzker awaits bailouts from the federal government. For the most part, Pritzker’s political priorities have concerned the “social issues.” Working with the “Progressive” Caucus in Springfield, he followed through on his pledge to “make Illinois the most progressive state in the nation” for killing babies through abortion. He helped pass the mandate to indoctrinate young children through teaching positively about “LGBT” history in government schools (K-12). He helped pass an expansion of gambling and increased both gasoline taxes and the cost of doing business with a hike in the minimum wage. Pritzker’s involvement in getting recreational marijuana passed in the state cannot be over-emphasized. This foolish policy will only exasperate our current national/international health predicament, as marijuana consumption has been proven to suppress the immune system, leaving users more vulnerable to sickness. He did a great disservice to Illinois’ families, the healthcare system and first responders. BTW, who do you suppose will be paying for these unintended consequences of legal pot? Regarding the “stay-at-home” order, which has now been extended through April 30th, why are abortuaries, liquor and pot stores considered “essential businesses”?)

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.)

In addition, if you have lung problems such as severe asthma, you are also at greater risk.” “Too much alcohol can also contribute to difficulties in fighting infection,” Whyte said. “Diabetes, heart disease, kidney and liver problems, respiratory diseases, and even severe obesity can make it much harder to recover if you contract the virus.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The idea of an out-of-the-blue pandemic shutting down America and the rest of the world would be an April Fools Day prank of the worst kind. Unfortunately, this is not a drill. Unlike past major events, 9/11, the Great Recession, which hit all of us but in many different ways, we are all pretty much in the same boat here. It may be better to be young in Idaho than to be 75 in Brooklyn. But maybe not all that much better. Hopefully you’ve got food. Toilet paper. You are taking every precaution. Now you wait. We all do. Federal employees, unlike many other working Americans, will have an annuity, a pension, if they work long enough.)

https://www.govexec.com/workforce/2020/03/court-deals-major-blow-trumps-signature-civil-service-reform-law/164250/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The law requires MSPB “to review whether the secretary had substantial evidence for his decision that an employee’s actions warranted the adverse action,” the appeals court wrote. “The board cannot meaningfully review that decision if it blinds itself to the VA’s choice of action.” It went on to say reviewing the punishment ensures the department cannot issue “absurd, unconstitutional” penalties. The court said its interpretation of the law would avoid a situation in which “an employee with an otherwise sterling record could be removed over a trivial incident.”)

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.)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Census-2020-The-LGBTQ-community-counts/68257.html
(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.)

By definition, blacklisters have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout. I should write a book about the blacklisters in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County. I would focus on blacklisters who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/485922-antonio-sabato-jr-backing-trump-got-me-blacklisted
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Antonio Sabàto Jr. says he’s working construction after being “blacklisted” by Hollywood for his support of President Trump. “All my representatives left me, from agents to managers to commercial agents. I literally had to move, find a new job to survive and take care of my kids,” the former Calvin Klein model said in an interview this week with Variety. “It’s been terrible. It’s mind-blowing. It’s a disgrace. It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know,” Sabàto said. The 48-year-old former “Melrose Place” actor was one of a handful of entertainers to vocally support Trump’s 2016 White House bid, and spoke at that year’s Republican National Convention. “I was the first celebrity to come out and talk about the president, and he had my vote from day one,” Sabàto told the magazine. But after Trump won office, Sabàto says his job offers in the entertainment industry dried up, forcing him to pack up and move to Florida for construction work. “I go on the job at two in the morning, and I’m making sure that the job is controlled and supervised by me. I’m in the car all day, driving, going through all the sites. Five days a week, nonstop,” he explained. The one-time GOP House candidate — Sabàto lost a 2018 bid to unseat Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) — claims other pro-Trump performers are reluctant to publicly vocalize their support for the commander in chief. “I know a lot of actors who are lying about who they’re going to vote for because they don’t want the crap,” Sabàto said. “They won’t want to be talked about and fired from movie sets. This is serious.” “The reality is the power that makes movies happen in Hollywood — casting directors, producers, executive producers, directors — they’re all liberal,” said Sabàto, while also noting he’ll vote for Trump’s reelection in November. “They hate anyone or anything who supports this president.”)

— With silence from Milwaukee officials, rumors have grown about the Molson Coors shooting. Here’s what we know. – Ashley Luthern and Gina Barton
https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/crime/2020/03/03/milwaukee-molson-coors-shooting-facts-behind-racism-noose-rumors/4934728002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Company addresses harassment allegations In Milwaukee, a city known for its racial disparities, discussion on social media and elsewhere has increasingly turned to the shooter’s possible motive, with several former workers describing a hostile, and at times racist, work environment. The shooter’s family has declined all interview requests to discuss his background and any possible racism he experienced at work. However, on Tuesday, the company acknowledged that five years ago, a noose was placed on or in his locker. “The employee was not working that day, our HR team notified him of the incident, it was investigated fully,” Adam Collins, chief communications and corporate affairs officer for Molson Coors, said in a statement. In addition, reports have surfaced that the shooter had ongoing tensions with at least one co-worker. Company officials are not aware of any formal complaints by the shooter to management or human resources about racist harassment, nor are they aware of the shooter filing any Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or state agency complaints related to race discrimination or harassment, according to information Molson Coors provided Tuesday. In an email to employees Tuesday, Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley acknowledged the rumors and commentary on the company’s culture. “Our emotions are running high and that’s compounded by what we see and hear in the press and across social media,” he wrote, later adding: “And with few facts available, it’s easy to resort to speculating about the reasons behind the shootings.” “In the meantime, I want to be absolutely clear on one thing: We do not tolerate any kind of harassment whatsoever,” Hattersley wrote. “We have investigated, and we will investigate, every complaint of harassment, intolerance or misconduct that is raised. And we have taken, and we will take, appropriate action in response to complaints.”)

— Sparks fly at budget hearing as Mnuchin grilled about Trump tax returns (DIERSEN: QUESTION: Why did the Democrats who ran Money Magazine pick me, an IRS employee at the time, to be the subject of their February 1978 “One Person’s Finances” article? ANSWER: They wanted to, and did, hint/imply/argue/shout that my Democrat IRS superiors should disallow my education deductions. The Democrats who ran Money Magazine hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business and accounting course that I had taken at Loyola and DePaul a) were not job related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) qualified me for a new trade or business, and e) were a distraction. The Democrats who ran Money Magazine would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/for-growing-numbers-of-struggling-u-s-cities-the-downturn-has-arrived-11583248603
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Few municipalities are in a deeper hole for their size than Harvey, a city of 24,641 that was founded in 1891 by a lumber tycoon. Harvey, located about 17 miles south of downtown Chicago, grew into an industrial center, producing car mufflers, farm and mining equipment and military airplane parts. When Mr. Clark, the new mayor, was born a half-century ago, the population was nearly 35,000. Roughly 46% of employed men over 16 worked in manufacturing, according to the 1970 census. “Everybody had a nice fenced-off yard,” Mr. Clark recalled of his boyhood neighborhood. “There was either a Cadillac or a Lincoln in front.” The local Dixie Square Mall had more than 50 stores, including Woolworth and Montgomery Ward. Mr. Clark drove a forklift before getting a scholarship to law school. He opened his law practice 10 years ago in a former jewelry store downtown. Factories closed in the 1980s, taking jobs with them. By 1990, nearly 15% of men ages 25 to 54 were unemployed, according to the census. Dixie Square Mall was demolished in 2012 after closing years earlier.)

GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE
— Civil Service Reform, Again – HOWARD RISHER (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. They focus on hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females. That means wasting the careers of and getting rid of federal employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who do not make 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. Extremely few make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
https://www.govexec.com/management/2020/03/civil-service-reform-again/163480/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: he recently released report from the Republican Study Committee’s Government Efficiency, Accountability and Reform Task Force identified civil service reform as one of three pillars to produce “a more efficient, effective, and accountable government.” The report correctly observes that without the “right people” meaningful reform cannot be implemented. However, the basic changes needed to attract the necessary talent—hiring reform, pay reform and benefits reform—have been proposed repeatedly in reports going back decades. At this point, no one would argue that the civil service system serves the needs of government or the country. The system impedes badly needed change. But it’s very likely this latest report will be quickly forgotten, just like all such previous reports.)

— House Committee to Consider Representative’s Qualifications – Greg Bishop (DIERSEN: When vacancies occur, I call for special elections to be held to fill those vacancies. If special elections had been held to fill the Wheaton City Council North and West City Council vacancies, which candidates would have won? If a special election had been held to fill the recent Illinois Republican Party 8th Congressional District State Central Committee vacancy, which candidate would have won?)
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=299397#.XlW0-WhKiM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State Rep. Anne Stava-Murray, D-Naperville, said she served Delgado a petition on Jan. 29 that called into question the new state representative’s qualifications. Stava-Murray said in her petition that Delgado’s husband was appointed to a “position of influence” with the Latino Caucus. “[T]he process and subsequent appointment created by that process indicated the political sway that a person alleged to have engaged in brazenly clear bribery (and known amongst House colleagues to repeatedly ask ‘what’s in it for me?’) retained even while vacating the House seat to which he had been elected,” Stava-Murray said in the petition. Earlier this month, House Minority Leader Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, filed a petition that laid out the timeline of Arroyo’s charges and subsequent resignation, and the questions around Arroyo giving his local party votes to someone else to cast for his replacement. “Mr. Arroyo gave his proxy votes to Alderman [Ariel] Reboyras to be used towards choosing Ms. Delgado,” Durkin said. “Although Mr. Arroyo was not present for the actual vote, his decision to give his votes to be voted by proxy had the same effect as if he was present at the actual vote to fill the vacancy.”)

https://www.nwaonline.com/news/2020/feb/19/republican-lawmakers-can-expect-loyalty/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican state lawmakers from Benton County will be checked on their adherence to the party platform, state House candidates were told Tuesday at a meeting of the Benton County Republican Women. A subcommittee of the Republican Party of Benton County was formed in December to check compliance with the party platform, subcommittee member Randy Alexander of Rogers told the group. The decision triggered discussion within the state party, he said. A proposal to have the state party do the checking instead is set for discussion at the state convention in July, he said. Benton County is the only county party he knows of that undertook such a procedure but he isn’t familiar with other operations, Alexander said after the meeting. The subcommittee didn’t release its findings on lawmakers but was authorized by the county party to give notice if any delegation member was seriously out of line with the platform, he said. No such finding went out, he said. A group within the Republican Women’s group will monitor faithfulness to the platform even if the county committee stops, said group member Lisa Richards. The topic came up while the 50 or so members and associates of the women’s group met with candidates in two GOP primaries. Candidates in the District 91 and 94 race all attended Tuesday’s forum. Early voting in the March 3 primary began Tuesday.)

— Conservatives fear Trump’s gay cabinet member will work to ‘impose’ homosexuality While LGBTQ people rightfully have concerns about Rick Grenell’s appointment, far-right figures believe he’ll put his ‘gay activism’ first. – Juwan J. Holmes (DIERSEN: How strongly is LGBTQ activity promoted in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world? Of course, those who do not want LGBTQ activity to be promoted DO NOT buy homes where LGBTQ is promoted.)

(FROM THE POSTING: Stage 5: Decline : This stage initiates the death of an organization. The decline is identified by the focus on political agenda and authority within an organization, whereby individuals start to become preoccupied with personal objectives, instead of focusing on the objectives of the organization itself. This slowly destroys the functionality and feasibility of the entire organization.)
