— The Existential Threat of CRT: State-Sponsored Racism – Ken Blackwell
(COMMENT: GAO works for Congress. In Diersen v. GAO, my Democrat GAO superiors hinted/implied/argued/shouted that they treated me just like Congress want them to treat GAO employees who complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and who had become an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

(COMMENT: My critics/opponents not only demand that I protect them, they demand that I a) glorify and praise them, b) pander to them, c) serve as one of their operatives or dupes, and/or d) give them money. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on unsuccessful Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, and campaign volunteers. I would focus Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, and Wheaton Park District. I would focus on leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization. I would focus on those who focus on a) stopping me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters and b) stopping everyone from reading those newsletters. I would focus on those who succeeded in stopping me from raising funds from DuPage Republicans so that DuPage Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks. I would focus on those who I have sued.)

RINOs are overjoyed that my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old because I opposed political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination and I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.

— JANUARY 22, 2014 FLASHBACK: What is a Precinct Committeeman? – Doug Ibendahl
(COMMENT: I have been a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999. I should write a book about how the following treat Republican Precinct Committeemen: past and present a) leaders of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), b) Republican leaders of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton, c) conservative leaders, d) religious leaders, and e) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. Since 1999, I have had the best record by far for attending MTRO meetings and events. I served as the MTRO webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I ran for the open MTRO Treasurer office in 2004. I served on the IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee in 2008. I have attended all the IRP state conventions since 2000. Between 2005 and 2019 I raised many thousands of dollars from many scores of Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders so that Republicans could help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. All five announced Republican U.S. Senate candidates attended a picnic that I organized in my precinct in 2003. I organized Wheaton’s 2004 and 2005 9/11 ceremonies. I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000.)

— Diversity is not new to America – MICHAEL BARONE
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/equality-not-elitism/diversity-is-not-new-to-america
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When George Washington took command of the Continental Army in 1775, he immediately noted the differences in attitudes and behavior between New England Yankees and his fellow Virginians. In Federalist No. 60, written in 1788, Alexander Hamilton wrote of the “diversity in the state of property, in the genius, manners, and habits of the people of the different parts of the Union.” The founders lived when memory was fresh of how religious wars wore apart much of Europe and the British Isles. They knew that Massachusetts was founded by Calvinists, Virginia by Anglicans, Maryland by Catholics, and Pennsylvania by Quakers. The Articles of Confederation they drew up to govern their revolution against Britain purposely gave the states maximum autonomy. The framers of the Constitution aimed to create a more powerful federal government, but with limited powers. “No religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States,” they wrote in Article VI, fully aware of religious tests in Britain and Europe.)

NEW JERSEY 101.5
— NEW JERSEY IS OPENLY ENGAGING IN SYSTEMIC RACISM – Dennis Malloy
https://nj1015.com/new-jersey-is-openly-engaging-in-systemic-racism-opinion/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The term “systemic racism” has been tossed around a lot, especially in the last few years. Most of it is just hyperbolic, overheated rhetoric used by some to gain more power or political advantage. No evidence seems to exist in the way the term is being used by many, other than affirmative action, where race is used for preferential treatment in education and employment. Now the state of New Jersey is doubling down and promoting a more aggressive and blatant form of racism. At least one state agency has told its members not to participate as a speaker in any conference that is being given by only white males. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority put out this statement in response to our newsroom. “Under most circumstances, NJEDA staff should not participate when the panel/speakers are wholly comprised of white males. If staff are asked to participate in such a panel, they should inform the requester of NJEDA’s policy and, if appropriate, may suggest additional, diverse speakers.” Of course, that kind of directive would not be acceptable directed toward any other group. But the answer to racial prejudice or unfair treatment is not more of the same poison. It’s doubtful that if a panel happens to be composed of white males that other people from other groups were excluded for their race or gender. But this kind of policy supposes so, and therefore engages in racial animus and promotes division and resentment among people, who should have one purpose in mind: to get the job done well.)

— Law Firms Are Willing to Pay for More Diverse Lateral Candidates, Raising Questions for Recruiters – Patrick Smith
(COMMENT: In 1980, when I was 31 years old, the Democrats who ran GAO forced me to take a $20,361/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $97,395) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $77,034/year) to transfer from IRS. If I had been a Democrat, minority, and/or female, GAO would have given me a promotion to GS-13 (currently $102,188/year) to transfer. GAO audits IRS. I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 Levels (currently $85,935-$97,395/year). I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.)

— German heritage well-rooted in state – and a cause for celebration – Tom Emery
(COMMENT: All my ancestors immigrated during the 1840s and 1850s to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. My grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI. My uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII. My father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. I should write a book about those who have used my being 100% German national origin against me the most. I would focus on those who have also used my being baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran against me the most.)
https://www.myjournalcourier.com/insider/article/German-heritage-well-rooted-in-state-and-a-16511797.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: German-American Day is observed every Oct. 6 and, in Illinois, there is plenty of reason to celebrate. German ancestry remains prevalent in Illinois, as it has for a century and a half. The strength of German-Americans helped shape Illinois history through a Civil War, as well as two world wars against the old country. Of the nearly 1.8 million residents of Illinois in 1860, nearly 325,000 were of foreign birth. Germans were the largest ethnic group with 130,000, nearly 8% of the state’s total population. Some 20% of Chicago’s population was German. Many had arrived following the failed German revolution of 1848. . .Many Germans were farmers, while others were laborers, merchants, and skilled tradesmen. Some followed the popular crafts of their homeland and worked as butchers, bakers, shoemakers, furniture and wagon builders, and cigar makers. Architecture of traditionally German-American buildings, often in brick, still is visible across the state. German-language newspapers were found across the state, even in the smallest cities. In 1859, future presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln bought the press and type to establish a German-language Republican paper. In Peoria, future Illinois Secretary of State Edward Rummel, a native of Baden, Germany, ran a German paper and print shop that produced goods in both German and English. John Wood, who founded the city of Quincy and served as governor for 10 months in 1860-61, was born to a German mother. In 1892, John Altgeld, a Prussian native, won election for one term as Illinois governor and is best known for his pardon of three of the accused in the infamous Haymarket Riot. Politically, German support was crucial, and their weight was felt at the first Illinois Republican state convention in 1856. The German influence also was a key factor in the 1860 presidential race, and at the Republican National Convention in Chicago, German resolutions were even incorporated into the national platform. Germans were perceived to be staunch abolitionists, though some scholars dispute that claim. Nearly 6,000 Illinois Germans enlisted in the first six months of the Civil War, comprising practically three whole regiments. One top German commander was Friedrich Hecker, a renowned 1848 revolutionary who was a gentleman farmer near Belleville, in the heart of heavily German settlements. Another German regimental commander from St. Clair County was Gustave Koerner, who served as lieutenant governor of Illinois from 1852 to 1856 and was a pallbearer at Abraham Lincoln’s Springfield funeral. By 1910, more than 319,000 German immigrants were in Illinois, and more than 1 million people of German descent — a 10th of the national total — called the state home. With nearly 400,000 first- and second-generation German immigrants, Chicago was the sixth-largest German city on the globe in 1914. The high concentration of Germans caused some protest at the outbreak of World War I, as many of German descent decried their adopted country’s stance against their homeland. Music by German composers such as Mozart and Beethoven was banned in some public places, and some German-Americans were under surveillance by state and federal officials. Other German-Americans were forced to recite loyalty oaths in public spectacles. Within a few years, use of the German language, once prominent, faded from schools and churches. As a result, many Germans in Illinois distanced themselves from their heritage. From 1914 to 1920, the number of Illinois residents who identified themselves as German on the U.S. Census dropped more than 41%, to 112,000. But many Germans remained loyal to the American cause and took active roles in the war effort both at home and abroad. A quarter-century later, dislike of German residents was a minor issue in World War II, as many chose to focus their disgust on Adolph Hitler, rather than their German neighbors. Today, German heritage in Illinois is celebrated in festivals and carnivals statewide, while some communities in Chicagoland, as well as Moline, Peoria, Gibson City, Mascoutah, Waterloo and Millstadt, feature popular German restaurants. Museums and research centers on German-American history and heritage are found in several large metro areas, including Chicago, Frankfort and the Quad Cities.)

— Victor Davis Hanson Breaks Down How Elites Are Destroying What It Means To Be An American Citizen In New Book
(COMMENT: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs replace equal opportunity with equal outcome. How soon, if not already, will the race, gender, age, sexual orientation, etc. of those who take tests have to be proportional to those who pass those tests?)
https://dailycaller.com/2021/10/05/victor-davis-hanson-breaks-down-how-elites-are-destroying-what-it-means-to-be-an-american-citizen-in-new-book/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The overarching theory of social scientists and historians is the shift from an “equality-of-opportunity” to an “equality-of-outcome” society. This transformation during the New Deal was the requisite for the entire 1960s continuance under the Great Society programs and their redefinition of civil rights to encompass government-ensured economic parity through higher taxes, income redistribution, massive new government spending, and forced proportional representation by race and gender in hiring and admission. Up until then, Americans traditionally had been open to new and stronger laws protecting equality of opportunity but were wary of the destructiveness of envy, the ancient fuel of an equality-of-result society that saw government punish its more successful citizens.)

— And Jews Will Still Vote Democrat – Dennis Prager
(COMMENT: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, many of my superiors and supervisors were Jewish. I should write a book about how my Democrat superiors forced them to take adverse actions against me. During the last 4 years that I worked for GAO, all of my superiors and supervisors were Jewish and 2/3 of them were female. My Democrat superiors stressed to my Jewish supervisors a) that I was conservative, b) that I was Republican, c) that I had been baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, d) that I was 100% German national origin, e) that I lived in Crete 1948-1972, and f) that I lived in Wheaton since 1978. In my defense, I stressed that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII, that my father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F, and that all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s.)

FAST COMPANY
— How to make a career change without leaving your current company. Making a lateral move to a different department or function can allow you to explore a new opportunity without having to start over completely. – STEPHANIE VOZZA
(DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates did not want me to transfer, but failing that, they wanted me to transfer as a GS-4 Step 1 (currently $34,956/year) intern, that is, to suffer a $62,439/year (64%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS as a Revenue Officer for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,935-$97,395/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious a) that I suffered a pay cut of only $20,361/year (21%) in today’s dollars to transfer and b) that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)
