BELLEVILLE NEWS DEMOCRAT
— St. Clair County plans to increase spending and tax revenue. How will it affect you? – KAVAHN MANSOURI (DIERSEN: Today, I received a notice from the DuPage County Supervisor of Assessments that the assessed valuation for my home at 915 Cove Court in Wheaton has been increased by 4.75%. Sadly, I doubt very much that I could sell the home for its new $515,750 “implied fair market value.) 
https://www.bnd.com/news/politics-government/article238043234.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: From 2017 to 2018, the county’s equalized assessed valuation, or the assessed value of all property, increased by about $5.1 million, or by roughly 3.17 percent. The county budget is partially designed around what officials expect to collect through property taxes. According to the St. Clair County treasurer’s office, the property tax cycle is a two-year cycle. Over the first year, the property is assigned a value reflecting its value as of Jan. 1. The tax bills are then calculated mailed and payments are distributed in the following year. Evaluation and collecting property taxes is a six-step process, starting with assessment and ending with collection.)

https://qconline.com/opinion/columnists/column-a-rapidly-approaching-future/article_9f5505a5-e611-51f9-94ee-8dd18838b9c2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: No matter what side you take on Trump Impeachment Theater, or just about any other topic for that matter — from the politics of chicken sandwiches to climate change — if you dare challenge the views of the reigning political priests, chances are you’ll be called stupid and hateful. And someone will want to shut you up. The traditional American response to such silencing has always been: “This is a free country, isn’t it?” But is it now? Or are we building a new “Animal Farm,” where we are told what to think and how to think it? These are the central questions in “No Safe Spaces,” a profoundly important new film about free speech and thought by conservative radio host Dennis Prager and Adam Carolla, the libertarian comic and podcast superstar.)

— They Were Warned – Kathy Valente (DIERSEN: QUESTION TO ASK CANDIDATES: What have you done and what will you do to discourage the sale and use of pot?)
https://illinoisfamily.org/uncategorized/they-were-warned/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Marijuana and its foolish proponents easily convinced Illinois state lawmakers that legalization would decrease black market trade and ease the burden on our criminal justice system. IFI warned them that this naive notion was contradicted by the facts, and we shared ample evidence from states that had already approved “recreational” marijuana. The evidence is clear: the black market had been thriving because of legalization. Now we read that the California cannabis industry is in big trouble and want lawmakers to do something about it. What’s their problem? The black market is doing 73 percent of California’s marijuana business – or $8.7 billion. California is considered to be the largest cannabis market in the world. While 2019 is not yet over, it’s estimated that their total marijuana sales will top nearly $12 billion. Yes, the black market is thriving on the left coast, growing by leaps and bounds, and threatening to bury a quasi-legitimate (sic) industry. So much for the influx of revenue they’re anticipating.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg says employees at his news organization need to accept restrictions with their paycheck, including the ban on investigating their boss. Bloomberg, billionaire founder of Bloomberg News, was asked in a CBS News interview about rules put in place when he announced his candidacy: The organization’s reporters are not allowed to probe him and his finances, or any of his Democratic rivals. Bloomberg News says the restriction does not apply to President Donald Trump as the government’s leader. That prompted Trump’s campaign to say it would not allow Bloomberg reporters to cover its events.)

FORBES
— The Impact Of Unemployment On Male Well-Being – Adi Gaskell (DIERSEN: I have been underemployed since 1976 and unemployed since 1997.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adigaskell/2019/12/06/the-impact-of-unemployment-on-male-wellbeing/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The impact of unemployment on well-being is well documented, although research from a few years ago suggested that it’s “good work” rather than just work that is the key to mental well-being. With the traditional gender roles presenting the role of men as the bread winner for the family, it seems logical that unemployment would pose a particular burden on men, and that was the subject of a recent report from the IZA World of Labor. The report reveals that the number of working-age men outside the labor force is on the rise around the world, with this corresponding with a rise in stress and other mental health issues, including depression and anger. Indeed, male unemployment is also linked to a range of physical health concerns, including suicide and substance abuse that are raising mortality rates across the United States. The researchers believe the issues of male unemployment are strongest among low-skilled labor, with those in work also suffering from declining wages and status. This often ultimately results in men dropping out of the labor force entirely. Many of the issues facing unemployed men revolve around a loss of hope, and such issues were consistent around the world. That many unemployed men resort to opioid abuse merely exacerbates their slide into poor mental well-being. This is often accompanied by marriage failure and a decline in civic or religious participation. One’s social standing was a key factor in this, as the image and self-esteem of many working class men is wrapped up in their hard work ethic, so being unemployed carries considerable stigma.)

https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2019/12/02/americas-full-employment-hides-a-dirty-secret/#9c6e22d7c157
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy? On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work. If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally. Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too. So it ends up affecting everyone and everything. Unhappy Employment There’s this plight of people who, while not necessarily poor, aren’t where they think they should be—and perhaps once were. This disappointment isn’t just in their minds; the economy really has changed. Yes, you can probably get a job if you are physically able, but the odds it will support you and a family, if you have one, are lower than they once were.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Liberal activists twist poll data to spread falsehoods about ‘LGBTQ’ voters hating Trump – Brad Polumbo (DIERSEN: If they were polled, what percent of the LGBTQers in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and Illinois would say that they disapprove of Trump?) 
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/liberal-activists-twist-poll-data-to-spread-falsehoods-about-lgbtq-voters-hating-trump
(DIERSEN: Wow: 93% of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people disapprove of President Trump! And 90% support the impeachment of the supposed evil ‘anti-LGBTQ’ villain. Or at least, that’s what LGBT Inc., the activist class and lobby, is claiming, based on the results of a new YouGov/Out Magazine survey into the 2020 election. The left-wing activist organization Human Rights Campaign, essentially an arm of the Democratic Party, put out a press release touting the poll’s results, declaring that “LGBTQ Voters Strongly Condemn Trump.” It highlighted selected figures from the survey and concluded, “One thing is clear, while LGBTQ people are diverse in race, identity and opinion, they are unified in opposition to the Trump-Pence administration.”)

— A Serious-Minded Kid:’ Pete Buttigieg Aimed High Early – Michelle R. Smith (DIERSEN: Did you aim high early? I did not. I did not earn an MBA until I was 27, pass the CPA examination until I was 30, earn a master’s degree in accounting until I was 31, and pass the Certified Internal Examination and become a licensed CPA until I was 32. By then, I was viewed as being much too old to have a successful career in the federal government. For federal employees who are White, male, and/or non-veteran to have a successful career, they have to make GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40. I did not make GS-13 until I was 38.)

DENTON DAILY
— Democrats purge white party staffers (DIERSEN: While worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure to purge their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40. Extremely few federal employees meet the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
https://dentondaily.com/democrats-purge-white-party-staffers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has begun purging white staffers en masse after complaints were made about a “lack of racial diversity within the organization.” From Reuters: “The congresswoman who heads the campaign arm for U.S. House of Representatives Democrats has acknowledged mistakes after lawmakers complained about a lack of racial diversity within the organization, and she named a Cuban-American as interim executive director as part of a major staff shakeup. The announcement by Representative Cheri Bustos late on Monday followed several days of turmoil at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), a controversy that has sidetracked the organization as it seeks to expand the party’s majority in the House in the 2020 election.)

Democrats want immigrants, minorities, young people, Libertarians, Greens, RINOs, non-protestants, non-German Americans, etc. to help them get rid of Republicans once and for all.
