She said Illinois’ population loss is being driven by downstate declines. “The decline is occurring in the smaller areas, smaller towns, primarily places that are rural,” she said. She said the loss of manufacturing jobs for decades is a big factor in that movement. Cordova said the state must begin to do things differently to reverse the trend, especially in rural areas.)

— Biden’s racial equity agenda targets ‘exclusionary’ single-family neighborhoods – Kery Murakami
(DIERSEN: Many in my Wheaton precinct believe that the south side of Roosevelt Road between the Prairie Path and Main Street is targeted for low-income apartment buildings.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/apr/28/biden-racial-equity-agenda-targets-exclusionary-si/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Biden wants to transform the character of many American cities and suburbs by building more apartment buildings in quiet and frequently disproportionately White neighborhoods of single-family homes. The Biden administration sees remnants of America’s segregationist past in what it calls “exclusionary” zoning laws, which allow only single-family homes in large swaths of cities and suburbs. As part of a racial equity agenda the president is pursuing in his massive infrastructure plan, Mr. Biden would send federal grants to cities if they eliminate those zoning laws and allow more lower-income people, often minorities, in areas that typically have better schools and fewer social ills that plague poor, inner-city communities.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/04/where_to_get_straight_news.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The gorilla in the room is Breitbart. It has two problems. The first is that, while it is generally a good source, it clearly pushes its product in the conservative direction. The second is that its website is formatted like a tabloid. If you want straight news, try Just the News or One America News Network. Newsmax and Fox are generally good, but neither sticks to straight news very well. The Epoch Times or the Wall Street Journal may also suit you. You may have to search for what you want. News aggregators such as The Liberty Daily, Citizen Free Press, Populist Press, and Conservative Playlist may have what you’re looking for. Once you leave pure news, you’ll be looking at commentary. If you want all sorts of viewpoints, RealClearPolitics is without peer. You’ll find the whole spectrum there, including the insane left. You pick and choose. There are also the three commentary sites I write for: American Thinker, Townhall, and NOQReport. There are lots of others, and as you follow hyperlinks in articles on those sites, you’ll discover more than you can possibly read. Particularly good ones are The Federalist, Reason Magazine, American Greatness, Daily Wire, and American Spectator.)

The surveys show that personal attitudes are not racist, as do voting patterns that elect blacks to the highest offices, and as does the huge spike in interracial marriages. If all of that were not enough, for fifty years “affirmative action” has given special preferences and privileges to blacks in education, business, and government.)

Of course, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious about that. My qualifications for being licensed included my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, my having worked for IRS for almost 9 years, my having worked for GAO for 16 months, and my passing the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination on my first attempt in 1981. Few of my GAO coworkers and subordinates had taken the CPA or CIA examinations, let alone passed them, let alone passed them on their first attempt. Few of my GAO coworkers and subordinates had any work experience before GAO hired them.)

LUTHERAN WORLD
— Don’t go down that road – Rev. Dr Martin Junge
(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn others. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican and have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County’s 4th District, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who focus on demonizing, denigrating, and condemning those who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owners, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.lutheranworld.org/blog/dont-go-down-road
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I was a teenager when it started. It was a time of profound changes in Chilean society, with polarized opinions. People increasingly resorted to a demonization of the other. Hate speech began to spread and became “normal”. History tells us, that where hate speech prevails, violence follows. This happened in my country Chile, and it happens today in many countries in the world. In Europe too. Hate speech erodes the public space of society. It stigmatizes individuals and groups because of their political convictions, religious believes, origin, the colour of their skin, gender. Hate speech makes the collective moral compass of society to go astray, and eventually leads to the collapse of democracy. What follows is a nightmare. When individuals and groups demonize the other, they unleash the demon of violence, oppression, and dehumanized treatment of the other. Hate speech leaves destruction in its wake.)

His firm recently stopped working with Cox. Beyond Cox, the top Republicans in the race so far are former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and ex-U.S. Rep. Doug Ose, who last held office in 2005. Neither is close to a household name, though Faulconer has been barnstorming the state to raise his profile.)

— White House reverses course on refugee cap after Democratic eruption – MORGAN CHALFANT AND RAFAEL BERNAL
(DIERSEN: Democrats want refugees because refugees vote for Democrats. RINOs want refugees because RINOs want cheap labor. Neither Democrats nor RINOs want to employ Republicans like me. GAO hired me in 1980 only because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 only because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 only because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
