https://www.newsmax.com/claremlopez/marxist-communist-emanuel-alinsky/2020/03/22/id/959371/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “You never want to let a serious crisis go to waste,” was the war cry of Rahm Emanuel, another socialist progressive. This is an echo of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” which is about the collapse of society and seizure of power. Now, no serious American thinks that President Trump intends to unleash the liberty-crushing arrest, detention, social-credit, or surveillance measures wielded by China. But as we have been warned (by Thomas Jefferson?) “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” So, as Andrew McCarthy wrote recently, “It is not sustainable for government to combat the disease by ordering communal and commercial activity to cease, then trying to compensate increasingly destitute citizens by borrowing and printing money to throw at them.” If we must live under “shelter in place”measures for a time to defeat this virus, so be it. Those who lose jobs and businesses may welcome federal financial assistance. Cutting regulations to speed solutions to market is most always a good thing. But, as we confront this crisis, let us be mindful of just how much authority we are ceding to a centralized government authority. We are a free society. If we relinquish that in a moment of fear, we may not get it back. Progressivism, socialism, and communism await those who neglect that “eternal vigilance.”)

I worked for IRS 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 GAO on audits of IRS for 3 years at the GS-13 Step 1-3 levels, currently $101,176-$107,922/year. I would focus on a) my Democrat IRS superiors, b) my Democrat GAO superiors, c) Republican U.S. Congressmen and their staffs, d) Republican U.S. Senators and their staffs, and e) Republican candidates for U.S. Congress and for U.S. Senate.)

— Why the rich favor the Democrats – Peter Skurkiss (DIERSEN: Rich people have never had to pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, or Inclusion. I should write a book about such rich people in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Wheaton, in Wheaton’s West District, in my precinct, etc. I would focus on the aforesaid who focus on destroying me because I oppose patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.)
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/03/why_the_rich_favor_the_democrats.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why do the wealthy align with the Democrats? The answer may seem counter-intuitive, but it is really quite simple. It’s surely not ideals or high-minded principles. Nor is it ignorance. Rather, it boils down to raw self-interest. In his book, The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties, Christopher Caldwell notes that rich Americans think themselves to be as vulnerable as blacks. They are a relatively small minority of the population. They fear being resented for their wealth and power and of having much of that taken from them. Accordingly, the wealthy seek to protect what is theirs by preventing strong majorities from forming by using the divide and conquer principle. As R.R. Reno writes when reviewing Caldwell’s book: “Therefore, the richest and most powerful people in America have strong incentives to support an anti-majoritarian political system.” He goes on: “Wealthy individuals shovel donations into elite institutions that incubate identity politics, which further fragments the nation and prevents the formation of majorities.” Some of the rotten fruit of the wealthy taking this approach include multiculturalism, massive immigration of diverse people, resistance to encouraging assimilation, racial strife, trying to turn white males into pariahs, and the promotion of gender confusion. Through it all, society is bombarded with the Orwellian mantra that “diversity is strength,” as if repeating it often enough can make it so. It is also why patriotism and a common American culture are so disparaged today. Those from the upper strata of society project the idea that if you’re a flag-waving American, you must be some kind of retrograde mouth-breathing yokel. The wealthy as a groups are content to dissolve the glue that holds the U.S. together. And it is all done to enhance and preserve their power, wealth, and influence. This is why they so hate Donald Trump. He strives to unite people and the country, although you’d never know that that is what the president is doing if you live in the media bubble. Trump’s MAGA agenda is an anathema to the managerial class.)

— White House, Warren Farrell mull fix to ‘boy crisis’ – Cheryl K. Chumley
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/mar/6/white-house-warren-farrell-mull-fix-boy-crisis/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Warren Farrell, co-author of “The Boy Crisis,” says America has a problem with males and it’s one that goes like this: They’re not being raised to be men. And how true that is. Today’s boys are being taught that masculinity is a disease. Where that’s led is to a rash of fatherless homes — and where that’s led is to a rash of behavioral, mental and psychological problems with the nation’s youth. It’s high time to end the experiment called radical feminism, the one where men aren’t needed and women can raise kids without male presences. It’s time to — as Farrell’s coined it — Make the American Family Great Again. MAGA, with a kick. “The boy crisis resides where fathers do not reside,” Farrell says. And in recent weeks, he’s met and spoken with a variety of folks from President Donald Trump’s administration, including officials with the Health and Human Services agency, the Department of Justice and within the hallowed halls of the White House. His goal is to create a national MAFGA program that would offer a Father Warrior Training program to help get America’s males back on the leadership track — to help bring back the once-valued masculine traits of responsibility, duty, strength and yes, love. To help teach those in the elementary levels how to be a proper father. This is no small task. Neither is it trite.)

— How Much Should Older Workers And Retirees Invest In The Stock Market? – Steve Vernon
https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevevernon/2020/03/03/how-much-should-older-workers-and-retirees-invest-in-the-stock-market/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Start by developing sources of retirement income that won’t drop when the market crashes; these sources should cover the cost of your “needs,” or at least come close. Such sources include Social Security, a pension if you’re lucky enough to have one, and cost-effective annuities you can purchase from an insurance company. Once you’ve developed enough sources of guaranteed retirement income to cover your basic living expenses, hopefully you should feel confident enough to invest your remaining savings significantly in stocks to give your money the potential for growth. This part of your savings can be invested in low-cost target date funds, balanced funds, stock index funds, or real estate investment trust (REIT) mutual funds. Then, use these savings to generate a regular retirement paycheck through a systematic withdrawal plan that covers the cost of your “wants”—hobbies, travel, gifts, and spoiling the grandchildren. When the stock market crashes, be prepared to reduce this retirement paycheck—and the money you’re spending on “wants” —while you’re waiting for the market to recover. If you put this type of plan in place, then, when the market crashes, you should have the patience and confidence to keep your investments in place and ride out the crash. Spend the time necessary to design a thoughtful retirement investing strategy, and you’ll be able to enjoy your life in retirement.)

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.”)

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/feb/29/buttigieg-extremely-vulnerable-attack-touting-navy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This cycle, such an effort would be designed to chip away at the former mayor’s argument that his time in Afghanistan gives him unique intellectual and moral authority on U.S. foreign policy. Political observers and other veterans who served in Afghanistan interviewed by The Times suggest that beneath the surface, Mr. Buttigieg could be walking into a trap. “It’s a weak story,” said one national GOP political strategist who has worked on presidential campaigns. “If the entire foundation of your foreign policy experience is built around your time as a low-ranking officer staring at a green computer screen, you’re making yourself extremely vulnerable.”)

PEORIA JOURNAL STAR
— Illinois should lead off presidential primaries – Editorial (DIERSEN: Pritzker argues that Illinois is “diverse.” I disagree. Based on how Illinois’ citizens have voted, Illinois is overwhelmingly 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 anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

NPR ILLINOIS
— 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.

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.)

They never owned slaves. They worked in a brick factory in Chicago, farmed in Crete and in Grant Park, operated a hardware store in Crete, and worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights.)
