http://www.wicz.com/story/42219904/the-partisan-chasm-over-systemic-racism-is-on-full-display
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The throngs of protesters demanding systemic changes in policing are marching directly into one of the deepest chasms between the two political parties. The belief that widespread racism is no longer a problem in American society has become one of the core convictions uniting the modern Republican coalition, especially in the Donald Trump era, polls have found. Several academic studies found the belief that discrimination against minorities (and women) is no longer a problem was a far better predictor of support for Trump in 2016 than economic anxiety. Democrats of all races, by contrast, are much more likely to say that discrimination against African Americans, including in their interactions with police, remains a structural feature of American society. In surveys by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute, Americans who support Trump were far more likely than those who don’t to say that police shootings of black men are only isolated incidents and to claim that discrimination against whites is now as great a problem as bias against minorities. This contrast looms heavily over the partisan reaction to the current eruption of protest. Since George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last month, a chorus of prominent conservative voices have insisted it is a “lie” to describe racial discrimination as a pervasive problem. And, while some polls conducted amid the upsurge of protest hint that more Republicans may see discrimination as a problem, generally the surveys have documented the persistence of a huge gap between the parties on the issue. That divergence has big implications for both policy and politics. In policy terms, it helps explain why Trump’s Justice Department, while initiating an inquiry into the specific circumstances of Floyd’s death, has effectively shelved efforts under former President Barack Obama to examine systematic bias in city police departments through so-called pattern and practice investigations. Appearing Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Attorney General William Barr rejected such an investigation of the Minneapolis Police Department and argued that while individual “bad cops” remain a problem in forces around the country, “I don’t think that the law enforcement system is systemically racist.” Politically, the heightened focus on police behavior and racial inequities more broadly could compel Trump to squeeze out bigger margins and turnout from the white constituencies most skeptical that racism remains a widespread problem, in order to offset what could be a further decline in November among the groups in all races that do consider bias an enduring blight on American life. In that way, this latest crisis could force Trump to further double down on the underlying political bet he is imposing on the GOP: squeezing bigger margins from shrinking groups at the price of alienating groups in society that are growing. Brian Schaffner, a political scientist at Tufts University who has conducted some of the central research on the role of racist and sexist attitudes in the 2016 vote, says that prospect leaves Trump navigating a very thin path. Comparing the election results in 2018 with those in 2016, his research found that House Republican candidates lost more ground among voters who agree that racism and sexism remain problems than they gained among those who do not. “In 2018, Republican House candidates paid a pretty significant penalty for being tied to his racist and sexist views,” Schaffner says. Trump faces the same risk in November, he believes. Partisan opinion gap emerges — and widens American public opinion about race is complex and contradictory, and, particularly among whites, it has not moved in a straight line. But the general pattern is that for decades most Americans, especially whites, concluded — despite evidence to the contrary — that the civil rights revolution of the 1960s defanged racial discrimination and created a situation in which African Americans had equal opportunity with whites. . .Trump’s reelection chances could be affected Schaffner, the political scientist, says there is “a lot to unpack” to understand why many whites, primarily but not entirely in the GOP, reject the idea that discrimination is an ongoing problem.)

— GOP Already Has the Lock on Diversity – Stephen B. Presser (DIERSEN: What do you say to Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, campaign managers, etc. who talk and/or act like they are Democrats concerning diversity? They focus on getting rid of Republicans who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.newsmax.com/stephenbpresser/maga-deplorables-people/2020/06/05/id/970760/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats claim that Donald Trump seeks to divide America, but it’s the progressives like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, who maintain that there are good and bad Americans, and, presumably, that the bad should be ignored or silenced. Hillary bemoaned the “basket of deplorables” supporting Trump, and Biden dismisses “from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people.” The Democratic Party is now committed to an adversarial ideology of “Us” vs. “Them.” The very core of identity politics is a marking out of groups — Women, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Gays and Lesbians, Transgenders, and others — groups against which America is alleged to have wrongly discriminated. Their claim is that these groups are entitled to an ameliorating redistribution of resources, to be funded by increasing taxes on the wealthy and privileged — presumably the nefarious beneficiaries of this alleged discrimination.)

— Jacobson sues
https://capitolfax.com/2020/06/01/jacobson-sues/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I don’t think the governor himself handled this very well and I said so at the time. To this day, Jacobson has access to the governor through the pool reporters, like I do, like we all do. Pritzker should’ve made that clear in public. Now her attorneys are trying to cast her as some sort of martyr. I’ve been to press conferences where I couldn’t get my questions answered. I may have already told you this story, but Gov. Blagojevich tried that with me once, so I walked around the room and whispered questions to every Chicago TV reporter there. He had no choice but to answer questions from them. . .Um, she can’t get “back into the room” because access is being limited for everyone right now due to COVID-19. And while Pritzker most certainly disagrees with her points of view, she did speak at a rally in opposition to his stay at home order. That goes well beyond attendance. On the one hand, she’s a show-boating hyper-partisan. On the other, I’ve always been opposed to the government deciding who is and who is not a reporter, although it is indisputable that legislative leaders can limit access to their press boxes based on broad criteria (like working for a lobbying group). On the third hand, if reporters were really upset about this, they would’ve stood up for Jacobson and her access would’ve been restored by now.)

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Langfelder, police chief served with cease-and-desist notices by Fox Run lawyer – Brenden Moore (DIERSEN: Constructively, since 2000, my critics/opponents have served me with many cease-and-desist notices to get me to stop sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I should serve them with cease-and-desist notices. Better yet, I should sue them.)
https://www.sj-r.com/news/20200527/langfelder-police-chief-served-with-cease-and-desist-notices-by-fox-run-lawyer
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A day after a Springfield restaurant received a cease-and-desist notice for defying Gov. JB Pritzker’s stay-at-home order, an attorney representing the restaurant and two other local businesses that opened early has returned the favor to Mayor Jim Langfelder and Police Chief Kenny Winslow. Thomas DeVore, an attorney representing Fox Run Restaurant, Bow and Arrow Salon and FitBodies, said he is “putting the City of Springfield on notice to cease and desist with any further efforts to violate my client’s civil rights” through enforcement of Pritzker’s order. The notice comes a day after Fox Run itself was served with a cease-and-desist notice from the Springfield Police Department, which informed the owners that failure to comply could result in the restaurant’s closure by the local or state health department or civil liability.)

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/white-house-trump-will-sign-executive-order-social-media
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Earlier Wednesday, Trump warned social media giants that the federal government could “strongly regulate” or “close them down” if they continue to “silence conservative voices,” amid his flaring battle with Twitter after the platform fact-checked one of his tweets for the first time this week. “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices,” Trump tweeted. “We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen. We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that happen again.”)

— TRAGIC, DISGUSTING: Who is more likely to smoke marijuana? – Daniella Genovese
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/more-likely-smoke-marijuana-194842942.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to a July 2019 poll from Gallup, which surveyed 1,525 adults across the nation who were at least 18 years old, the likelihood of someone smoking marijuana “varies significantly” by gender, age, region and political ideology. Overall, the survey indicated that adults between 18 to 29 years old are the age group most likely to smoke marijuana. According to the findings, 22 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds revealed they smoked, which makes them twice as likely to smoke compared to adults from 30-49 years old and seven times as likely as adults older than 65 years old. Eleven percent of adults from 30-49 years admitted to smoking and 12 percent of people ages 50 to 64 do. Meanwhile, only three percent of people over the age of 65 admitted to smoking. . .Aside from age, the results also revealed that men are twice as likely to smoke marijuana than women. Additionally, liberals are six times more likely to smoke than conservatives and twice as likely as moderates, according to the findings.)

BROOKINGS INSTITUTE
— Public service and the federal government – Fiona Hill (DIERSEN: Who looks down on you? From what I see, ever-increasingly, Republicans look down on federal employees and look down on federal retirees. I was a federal employee for almost 30 years and I have been a federal retiree for almost 23 years.)
https://www.brookings.edu/policy2020/votervital/public-service-and-the-federal-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Popular appreciation of and respect for government service and public servants have steadily declined in the United States since the 1960s, with only two brief exceptions: in the 1990s during the Clinton administration, and in the months immediately after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. There is a particularly deep sense of distrust in the U.S. federal government. In an April 2019 Pew Research Center poll, for example, only 17% of respondents indicated that they trusted the federal government “to do the right thing.” Why is this the case? While there is significant support for the vital functions public servants perform at the local and state levels, and during crises, deeply entrenched misconceptions about the U.S. federal government and its individual agencies shape more negative views. For example, the opinion that the U.S. government is vast and unwieldly is widespread outside the public sector. The U.S. population has been evenly split for several years in its views on the optimal size of the U.S. government—with 47% of those polled by Pew in 2019 seeing government as either too big or too small. The two perspectives reveal a sharp partisan divide. Sixty-seven percent of those who affiliate with the Democratic Party express support for the expansion of government services. On the “too big” side of the ledger, 74% of those who describe themselves as Republicans want to see the government shrink in both size and functions. Newspaper and opinion page headlines such as “The sheer size of our government workforce is an alarming problem” encapsulate this view.)
— Destroying trust in the media, science, and government has left America vulnerable to disaster – Marc Hetherington and Jonathan M. Ladd (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have focused on destroying trust in me and trust in my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who paint themselves as being religious, conservative, and/or Republican to give themselves standing to destroy those who are religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)

https://www.foxnews.com/world/what-is-china-social-credit-system

(FROM THE ARTICLE: China’s social credit system is a government program being implemented nationwide to regulate its citizens’ behavior based on a point system. Under this system, citizens are ranked in different areas of civil life using data collected from court documents, government or corporate records, and in some cases, citizen observers. Citizens with higher scores have had an easier time getting bank loans, free medical checkups and discounts on heating. Points have been deducted for traffic violations, selling faulty products or defaulting on loan payments. In some cases, people with bad social credit scores have been barred from buying airline or train tickets. Other infractions have included smoking in non-smoking zones, buying – or playing – too many video games and posting false news stories online, Business Insider reported. People failing to comply have been placed on so-called “blacklists,” which companies may reference when considering potential employees. In other cases, students may be denied entry into universities because of their parents’ bad social credit scores. China’s State Council first introduced the plan in June 2014. The council announced the system would “allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step.” At first, officials implemented the system gradually in different cities. It was expected to go nationwide this year, but has been delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic.)
