— First Amendment authority: Pritzker’s demand that paper unpublish story ‘extreme measure’ – W.J. Kennedy (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have punished me and who continue to punish me for including links in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to articles they do not like. They have been emboldened by those who could/should come to my defense, but have not.)
https://prairiestatewire.com/stories/529040855-first-amendment-authority-pritzker-s-demand-that-paper-unpublish-story-extreme-measure
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A First Amendment authority says a demand by Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office that a central Illinois newspaper unpublish a story about the governor’s progressive income tax proposal was “highly unusual.” “Push back from a politician about facts being wrong or problems with the overall tone of the piece is what you normally see,” David Snyder, executive director of the First Amendment Coalition, told Prairie State Wire. “And if the paper did get the facts wrong, it should correct them immediately. But asking for a retraction of an entire article is a pretty extreme measure.” Pritzker’s office reportedly asked the Jacksonville Journal-Courier last month to unpublish a story by The Center Square about the governor’s plans to cut spending if voters in November shoot down his plans to shift from a flat income tax to a progressive one. The tax shift proposal, an amendment to the state constitution, is on the ballot this fall. In a follow-up story, The Center Square wrote that a spokesman for the governor, Jordan Abudayyeh, sent an email to the paper’s editor saying that the article was “flawed” and lacked context. “Ultimately, it would be prudent to take down this partisan content masquerading as news,” she was quoted as writing in the email. The Center Square said that a video accompanying story on its website shows Pritzker saying what he is quoted as saying in the story. “The governor’s office did not alert The Center Square to any errors in the Feb. 7 article, headlined ‘If voters reject progressive income tax, Pritzker promises to cut state spending, and no corrections were published,” the follow-up story said. Snyder, an attorney, said that only the example more extreme that he’s aware of is a private Swiss bank, Julius Baer Group, in 2008 getting a court order to shut down Wikileaks.org in a dispute over postings on the site by a former employee of the bank. The ruling was later overturned.)

https://www.axios.com/coronavirus-press-freedom-e11cd2d3-c1c3-4b67-b985-102c882a223d.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the U.S., President Trump has continued to belittle the press for its coverage of the virus at live press conferences and on Twitter. On Monday, President Trump deflected blame onto the Washington Post when asked about allegations that China — as well as Russia and Iran — is spreading coronavirus misinformation, saying “every country does it.” Trump last week attacked NBC News reporter Peter Alexander during a live television briefing after being asked what he would say to Americans that were worried about the coronavirus, a question Alexander later said he thought was a “softball,” or an opportunity for the president to answer an easy question. Between the lines: The president’s actions, some fear, give credence to leaders abroad and locally in the U.S. to continue to attack press that they don’t like. Case-in-point: Over the weekend Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, an ally to President Trump, blocked a reporter from attending a coronavirus press briefing. Days earlier, that reporter had asked if briefings could be moved online to protect reporters’ health.
DeSantis has been criticized by Democrats over his response to the coronavirus.)

In California, Kim Mangone thinks she can beat him – MATTHEW ROZSA (DIERSEN: In America today, to hint/imply/argue/shout that someone is a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, or bigot is like hinting/implying/arguing/shouting in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s that someone is a Jew. Needless-to-say, I should sue those who have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, or bigot. They include past and present leaders of organizations and governments in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.

https://www.centralillinoisproud.com/news/local-news/normal-council-grants-mayor-and-city-manager-emergency-powers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the virus continuing to spread in McLean County, both twin cities council’s are taking the next step to ensure people are safe and have nothing to worry about. On Monday, the Normal council met to declare a local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, members gave Mayor Chris Koos and City Manager Pam Reece emergency powers. What this means is, both Reece and Koos now have the authority to make decisions that might ordinarily be outside municipal policies or codes. That includes spending money outside what’s outlined in the budget to fight the pandemic. In a balance of powers effort, the town council has the ability to review any and all orders issued by the Mayor. “There are situations that we really can’t anticipate,” said City Manager, Pam Reece. “We want the ability to be able to be nimble and react quickly.” The ordinance is now in effect, and will end when Pritzker’s stay at home order ends, which at this time is set for April 7th.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rahm Emanuel, then chief of staff to President-elect Obama, famously said in late 2008 “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that

[is]

it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” Dubbed “Rahm’s rule,” the same principle may be informing some policy responses to the coronavirus. Indeed, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are packaging significant chunks of their longstanding legislative agenda under the guise of responding to the coronavirus: “In light of reports that the Trump administration is considering new tax cuts for major corporations impacted by the coronavirus, we are demanding that the administration prioritize the health and safety of American workers and their families over corporate interests.”)

— 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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: From: Liz Uihlein. . .Subject: The Media is Overblowing COVID-19 Dear Members of the Illinois Legislature: There were 1,701 cases in the U.S. of which there were 41 deaths; whereas an overwhelming number of people have been infected with and died from the flu this season. While you may think the government enforced closing of events, schools, etc. is helping prevent the spread of this infection, you are impacting local, state and national economies and adding unnecessary panic and fear in the American people. What happens in 2 weeks? Are you willing to indefinitely close institutions? At what point do we go back to our normal lives? This has been a huge disruption. Sincerely, Liz Uihlein, President, Uline)
