— Biden signs executive orders on $15 minimum wage for federal workers, food aid increases – Josh Boak
(DIERSEN: In 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents were furious that the Post Office paid me $16.81 an hour (GS-4 Step 1) in today’s dollars. The Post Office hired me because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The job had the following requirements and I met all those requirements: high school diploma, pass an employment examination, pass a physical examination, pass a background investigation, pass a truck driving test, own a car to deliver mail from, and be available to work at least 20 hours a week.)

https://www.newsmax.com/politics/social-media/2021/01/19/id/1006337/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Social media giants crossed a threshold in banning President Donald Trump and an array of his supporters — and now face a quandary on defining their efforts to remain politically neutral while promoting democracy and free speech. After Jan. 6, with its unprecedented violence in the seat of Congress, Trump was banned for allegedly inciting the rioters — on platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google-owned YouTube and Snapchat. The alternative network Parler, which drew many Trump backers, was forced offline by Amazon’s web services unit. The bans broke new ground for internet firms but also shattered the longstanding notion that they are simply neutral platforms open for all to express any views. “Banning Donald Trump was a crossing of a Rubicon for social media firms, and they can’t go back,” said Samuel Woolley, a professor and researcher with the University of Texas Center for Media Engagement. “Up to now their biggest goal was to promote free speech, but recent events have shown they can no longer do this.”)

— Trump Has Discussed Starting a New Political Party – Andrew Restuccia
(DIERSEN: From what I see, Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, Independent plant, and RINO leaders of Republican organizations a) despise/hate Trump supporters, b) want Trump to start a new political party, and c) will use the Capitol Riot to destroy the Republican Party once and for all.)
https://www.wsj.com/livecoverage/trump-impeachment-biden-inauguration/card/90pPMzFPqr5fMzg1Bkbs
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s unclear how serious Mr. Trump is about starting a new party, which would require a significant investment of time and resources. The president has a large base of supporters, some of whom were not deeply involved in Republican politics prior to Mr. Trump’s 2016 campaign. Third parties have typically failed to draw enough support to play a major role in national elections. Any effort to start a new party would likely face intense opposition from Republican party officials, who would chafe at the thought of Mr. Trump peeling off support from GOP candidates.)

KMJN
— NBC News Poll: Voters Bleak on US Track, Future
(DIERSEN: From what I see, the more of the following that you are, the more bleak that your future is: law enforcement officer, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Christian, Protestant, Italian American, German American, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.kmjnow.com/news/nbc-news-poll-voters-bleak-on-us-track-future/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: More than 70% of voters think the country is on the wrong track and that the next four years will remain politically divided — while a majority are pessimistic about America’s future, a new poll showed. The NBC News poll released a day before the Wednesday inauguration of Joe Biden paints a bleak picture of a worried nation. Here’s the breakdown: 73% say the country is on the wrong track. 73% say the United States will remain divided in the next four years. 53% say they’re worried and pessimistic about the nation’s future — the first time that response has been given to the question since 1998. The poll also showed voters find Biden likable and ethical, but didn’t give him high marks on the economy or for sharing their positions on the issues. 39% gave Biden a “4” or “5” on a five-point scaled on the economy; 38% gave him those high marks on sharing their positions on the issues. 55% of voters give Biden a “4” or “5” on a five-point scale of being knowledgeable and experienced enough to handle the presidency, and 53% as being easygoing and likable. 47% gave Biden high marks for having the ability to handle a crisis, and 45% give him high marks for having high personal and ethical standards.)

DAILY BEAST
— Fox News Launches ‘Purge’ to ‘Get Rid of Real Journalists,’ Insiders Say ‘BLOOD BATH’ Fox laid off at least 16 staffers, including Chris Stirewalt, who defended the election-night call that pissed off Trump. Insiders say the firings are part of an ideological purge. – Diana Falzone and Lachlan Cartwright
https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-launches-purge-to-get-rid-of-real-journalists
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But a dozen current and recently departed Fox News employees who spoke with The Daily Beast all said the “purge”—as a few characterized it—was part of the network’s larger effort to pivot its website from straight-news reporting to right-wing opinion content in the mold of Fox’s primetime programming. “There is a concerted effort to get rid of real journalists,” said one recently departed Fox staffer. “They laid capable people off who were actual journalists and not blind followers.” Others said it was an attempt to silence leakers from speaking to outside media about the changes being instituted by Porter Berry, a former producer for Hannity and Bill O’Reilly, who recently transitioned from the TV side to running Fox’s digital properties. “Porter’s uncomfortable around and is suspicious of experienced editors,” one Fox News insider remarked to The Daily Beast. “They make him feel inept because his background is entirely in TV.” “Porter is at the helm,” one current employee declared of the layoffs, while a recently departed staffer said: “This is all Porter. Both an ideological purge and a purge of people he was threatened by.” “It’s essentially the final nail in the coffin for digital journalism at Fox,” another recently departed staffer declared. Though, this former staffer noted, the shift to focusing on right-wing opinion has paid off for Berry. “What has slightly been working for him are recaps of the network’s primetime opinion shows,” the source said, and so the desire is for more “cheap labor to write a dozen 250 word recaps of the network’s primetime shows.”)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Biden immigration plan opposed by GOP, conservative groups. Several pro-immigration groups, meanwhile, said they would press Biden to go even further and take steps such as an immediate moratorium on deportations, detentions and new arrests. – AP
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2021/1/19/22239640/biden-immigration-plan-opposed-by-gop-conservative-groups
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s a mass amnesty for almost the entire population of illegal immigrants living in the United States — people who broke our laws to get here and stay here,” said Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. He added, “A mass amnesty with no safeguards and no strings attached is a nonstarter.” “There are many issues I think we can work cooperatively with President-elect Biden, but a blanket amnesty for people who are here unlawfully isn’t going to be one of them,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who is often a central player in Senate immigration battles. That view was shared by Mark Krikorian, executive director of the conservative Center for Immigration Studies, which favors curbing immigration. “Past proposals at least accepted the concept of turning off the faucet and mopping up the overflow. This is nothing but mopping up and letting the faucet continue to run,” Krikorian said. The top lobbyist for NumbersUSA, which also wants to limit immigration, agreed that without changes, the measure seemed destined to receive little if any GOP support. “They’re just going straight-up amnesty,” said the lobbyist, Rosemary Jenks. She said that made the measure likely to fail in the Senate, where it would need at least 10 Republicans to join all 50 Democrats to overcome a filibuster that would kill the measure.)

Tim Butler (R-Springfield) is calling on the Republican party to wipe out any similar problems the party currently has. “My hope is that those of us in the Republican party can own this because this was a rally that was at the behest of the President who is a member of our party. We need to make sure we root out any trouble that we have and make sure people understand this isn’t tolerated in our democracy, we can’t have this. Hopefully going forward it’s something we never see again,” Butler said.)

According them, because of Republican discrimination against minorities, females, and veterans, if I had been a minority, female, or veteran, none of the aforesaid would have happened and I would never have been able a) to earn a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) to earn job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, or c) to earn a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/14/democrats-were-occupying-capitols-before-they-were-against-it/?
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Thousands of protesters rushed to the … Capitol Wednesday night, forcing their way through doors, crawling through windows and jamming corridors.” That is how one newspaper described the storming of the Capitol — not the one in Washington last week, but the state Capitol in Madison, Wis., a decade ago. Back then, thousands of pro-union activists — many bused in from out of state — rampaged through the historic building in an effort to stop a vote on collective bargaining reform legislation. So, when I saw the images of a pro-Trump mob rampaging through the U.S. Capitol last week, my first thought was: What is Scott Walker thinking right now?)

— Apathy Is Destroying Our Liberty – Michael Dorstewitz
https://www.newsmax.com/michaeldorstewitz/liberty-parler-twitter-liberty/2021/01/13/id/1005419/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: So, too, we’ve been slowly losing our liberty, and too many Americans don’t seem to care. The storming of the Capitol building a week ago accelerated that process beyond anything we could imagine a year ago. Conservative columnist and talk radio host Dennis Prager observed that in 1933, the Nationalist Socialists (Nazis) blamed the burning of the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament building, on Communists. They used it to drum the Communist Party out of existence and silence the voices of its members. Similarly, after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill, the mainstream press, social media and Democratic leaders silenced any claims that didn’t echo the parry line — even to the point of censoring the president of the United States.)

https://capitolfax.com/2021/01/08/legislators-are-returning-to-do-their-jobs-they-should-let-reporters-do-theirs/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The House has decreed that it will not allow reporters on the floor of the 40,000 square foot BOS Center because of public health and security concerns. When I’ve objected, I’ve been asked why I wanted to be on the floor if I was going to have to remain at least six feet away from everyone else anyway. But adding a relative handful of reporters to a huge hall like that shouldn’t significantly increase viral load. House press credentials are not easily available, so the security concerns are unfounded and even insulting. And folks who are wearing masks are allowed to be closer together than six feet, as should be abundantly clear from these photos taken during the May special session. . .I’ve been tested for COVID-19 and won’t be venturing forth until the results come back and would be happy to provide testing documentation. I never go anywhere in public without wearing a mask, I don’t go to indoor restaurants and bars and nobody comes into my house without wearing a mask. I’m more than willing to take what will hopefully be a relatively moderate risk to do my job, and most other reporters I know agree. We’re essential workers who do necessary work. And the next several days could be the most momentous in Illinois government since I do not know when. Let us in.)

— Will Americans Ever Grow Wise To Alinsky?
https://www.gopusa.com/?p=100219
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, it needs to be established that while so much of the mayhem and vandalism occurring at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 was perpetrated by antifa infiltrators with the intent of making real conservative patriots look bad, many of those who breached the boundaries and entered the Capitol were indeed on the right. Had that not been the case, the victim of the wanton police shooting would have been a leftist, and flags would be flown at half-mast for her from coast to coast, for at least a month. With emotions running so high, it may be risky to address the realities of the situation, and more specifically the deliberately stoked and overblown backlash from the media and the political class. Nevertheless the truth needs to be told. Unless people have a clear perspective on what actually happened in the aftermath, and how they were thoroughly emotionally manipulated by the “ruling class” and its media minions, they will never properly sort through all of the propaganda currently being dumped upon them. The left is in all of its evil “glory,” claiming indignation and fear, though its actual exuberance over its apparent “victory” can hardly be contained. On the basis of this single event, when magnified as shamelessly and hypocritically as only leftists can do, they believe all of their lies, corruption and treachery of the past four years, and particularly since Election Day, are somehow “vindicated.” Worst of all, RINO lackeys and even genuine Conservatives feel enormous pressure to genuflect at their feet and beg for absolution.)

GLENVIEW PATCH

(DIERSEN: 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump. 20,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump. What does the future hold for Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, in your county, and in Illinois? From what I see, the more of the following that is true about you, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump haters will do to get rid of you once and for all: a) shared articles that were favorable to Trump, b) cast a Republican ballot in the March 17, 2020 primary, c) voted for Trump in the November 3, 2020 election, d) displayed a Trump yard sign, e) gave money to Trump, f) serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, and/or g) are running for an office as a Republican in the April 6, 2021 election.)
https://patch.com/illinois/glenview/do-you-know-name-your-republican-committee-person
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I spoke yesterday to a lifelong and staunch Democrat, a former candidate for elected office. I shared with her my conflict. She encouraged me to stay in the party and to make a change internally. As a resident of Cook County, that might not be easy. The fealty for the Head of the Republican Party (45) is disgusting to me. I have been and will continue to be a NEVER Trump Republican, and I have supported the Lincoln Project. . .Local governance and elections are the bedrock of our Constitutional Form of Government. People often say we are a Democracy when in actuality, we are a Representative Republic. In Illinois, the most basic unit of our government is the Republican and Democratic Committeewomen and Men elected to serve our respective parties. In Suburban Cook County, these representatives are ELECTED every four years at the Primary election for Governor. The political subdivision is the Township. At the March 20, 2018, Primary election, the following Republican Township Committeepersons were elected without opposition (please remember this point). . . I would venture to say that MOST Republican Primary Voters have no idea who their elected Committeeperson currently is, and even fewer have met them. The next Cook County Committeeperson election is likely March 15, 2022. A simple question should be put to every one of these elected leaders. On January 6, 2020, were you supportive of the Presidents incendiary remarks and, by extension, him; or do you stand for the Rule of Law, our Federal and State Constitutions, and the real Republican Party ideals which were on clear display before 2015. If you don’t like the answer you get, I hope that you will consider becoming a candidate for Republican Committeeperson. Our party must decide, are we with the 45th President or not. Only then, I believe, we will be able to relay the foundational stones of the Republican Party, one that I hope to be proud of again. If we can’t make an elegant transition to better government in the next four years I will turn in my lifelong Republican credentials.)
