(FROM THE ARTICLE: Maryland’s strong Democratic majority seemed far away this weekend at a conference near the State House, where Republicans discussed their priorities for 2020. During speeches Saturday by elected GOP officials and party leaders, attendees booed the costly education overhaul proposal being championed by the deep-blue General Assembly, cheered raucously for President Donald Trump and poked fun at candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination. In between panels about how to reduce gun-control restrictions and limit access to abortion, dozens of the party faithful exchanged business cards, snapped selfies and commiserated over being conservative in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2 to 1 and have a veto-proof majority in both chambers of the legislature. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, a moderate in his party who has frequently criticized Trump, was not present at the conference hosted by the conservative website Red Maryland. Hogan’s spokesman said the governor was invited but could not attend “because of his schedule.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Members of the Navarro County Republican Executive Committee heard from candidates in contested races at a regular meeting Tuesday at the group’s headquarters in Corsicana. Candidates for Navarro County Sheriff, Pct. 3 Commissioner, Justice of the Peace Pct. 2 and Navarro County District Attorney introduced themselves to those in attendance. Sheriff Elmer Tanner received the endorsement of Texas Representative Cody Harris, “I’m honored to receive Harris’s support,” he said, “Cody understands and respects the job that we do.” “Sheriff Tanner worked closely with me during the 86th Legislative session, making sure I understood how legislation would affect the people of Navarro County.” The Palestine Republican said, “without question, Elmer Tanner is the right man for the job.” Tanner will face David Foreman in the March 3 primary. Those in attendance approved the appointments of four precinct chairs who filled for office but faced no primary challenge. Precinct Chairs are instrumental helping the Republican Party get out the vote. Republicans now have 23 of 30 Navarro County precincts filled. “It’s time to get out there and shake up our precincts,” said Bobby Vickery who was appointed to Pct. 404 “It’s extremely important that we contact every Republican and make sure they get out to vote,” said Navarro County Republican Chairman Eric Meyers. “Nearly 1,000 people move to Texas every day, we need to make sure Texas stays red.” Meyers also alerted party faithful about important upcoming dates in the “consequential 2020 election year.” The last day to register to vote in the Texas primary is Feb. 3. Anyone interested may now request a ballot by mail from the Navarro County Elections Administration Office. Any requests must be returned to the Elections Office by Feb. 21. Early voting for the primary election is from Feb. 18 to 28 at the Navarro County Annex building, 601 N. 13th Street in Corsicana. The Texas primary will be March 3. Navarro County residents will have several opportunities to hear from candidates in upcoming forums, and meet and greets. The Conservative Society of Navarro County, in conjunction with the Republican Women and the Republican Party of Navarro County, will host a federal candidate meet and greet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 at Republican Party Headquarters, 111 W. Third Ave. in Corsicana. The Republican Women will hold a candidate forum lunch at Republican Headquarters at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28. The Corsicana Opry/ Silver Saddle Saloon will host the Republican Party of Navarro County Candidate Forum at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11. The group is finalizing plans for its March 6, Navarro County Reagan Day Dinner. The group also voted to hold the Precinct Convention at the Navarro County Courthouse on Saturday, March 14. The County Convention will be held the following week on Saturday, March 21. Republican delegates from each of Texas’s 254 counties will meet in Houston at the state convention the week of May 11-16. The Texas state Republican convention is expected to be larger than the National Republican gathering. The national convention will be in Charlotte, North Carolina in August. All other regular reports were adopted. The next meeting of the Navarro County Executive Committee will be at party headquarters in April.)

In 1975, they got rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. My Democrat IRS superiors would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran.

My many Democrat Jewish superiors in the federal government played a major role in all the adverse actions that the federal government took against me. 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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

BOSTON HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to this article, “Democrats often react badly to negative campaigning.” If you have any skeletons in your closet, you should not seek or hold any kind of government or political office as a Republican. Democrats want those Republican candidates to win primary elections who have the biggest skeletons in their closets. The bigger the skeletons that candidates have in their closets, the easier that it is to defeat those candidates in general elections. If you were a Republican candidate and your primary opponent hinted/implied/argued/shouted that you were a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, and/or bigot, how would you respond? Would you stress the skeletons that your opponent has in his/her closets that the Democrats would use to defeat your primary opponent in the general election?

WASHINGTON POST
— JUNE 6, 2019 FLASHBACK: In Va. GOP primary for legislature, a candidate’s criminal past becomes an issue – Laura Vozzella (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, candidates should fully disclose all the skeletons that they have in their closets BEFORE they enter primaries. SEE Jack Ryan at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Ryan_(politician) )
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/virginia-politics/in-va-gop-primary-for-legislature-a-candidates-criminal-past-becomes-an-issue/2019/06/06/51c83ab0-87c4-11e9-98c1-e945ae5db8fb_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former Stafford County supervisor Paul Milde, who is challenging Del. Robert M. Thomas Jr. in Tuesday’s Republican primary, has a criminal record that hasn’t stopped voters from electing him three times in the past. But it has emerged as an issue in the hotly contested race between Milde and Thomas in the 28th District, which includes parts of Fredericksburg and Stafford County. In 1986, when he was 18, Milde was convicted of possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute — a felony — in Prince William County. He was sentenced to six years in prison, with five years suspended. Nine years later, Milde pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to an attempted burglary in Fairfax County — a misdemeanor for which he was sentenced to 360 days, all but 20 suspended. . .Milde has responded with a flier with a photo of a skeleton looming behind a rack of dress shirts. “Bob Thomas says I have skeletons in my closet,” it begins. In it, he explains his cocaine conviction, though not the burglary. He suggests voters should care more about recent behavior, including Thomas’s decision in early 2018 to vote with Democrats to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Thomas had run for office on a pledge to oppose expansion.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger In the fall, Kinzinger, 41, another Trump administration foreign policy critic, denounced the president for suggesting impeachment would result in “civil war like fracture” in the country. “I have visited nations ravaged by civil war. I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant,” tweeted the lawmaker, who’s represented the region southwest of Chicago since 2011. The congressman additionally wasn’t shy about voicing his displeasure with Trump’s decision to host the G-7 summit at one of his Florida properties before changing the location to Camp David after several Republicans complained about conflicts of interest.)

— You Must Answer This One Question If You Want To Maximize Your Career Success In 2020 – Mark Murphy (DIERSEN: What did you do to learn new job-related skills? I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997 when I was 48 years old. I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981 when I was 32 years old. I earned a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980 when I was 31 years old. I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 when I was 30 years old. I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976 when I was 27 years old. I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970 when I was 21 years old.) 
https://www.forbes.com/sites/markmurphy/2020/12/29/you-must-answer-this-one-question-if-you-want-to-maximize-your-career-success-in-2020/#7d5adbeb5449

(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, set a big career goal for 2020. Maybe you want new responsibilities, a promotion, to double sales, or whatever. But then, after you set that goal, ask yourself, “What new skills am I going to have to learn in order to achieve my big goal?” If you can’t identify any new skills that you’ll need to learn, then you’ve just discovered that your goal needs to be more difficult. Forcing yourself to learn new skills sounds like a pretty obvious task. But our study called “If Employees Aren’t Learning, You’re Not Leading” discovered that only 35% of employees say that they’re Always learning something new at work. Meanwhile, 52% of employees are Never, Occasionally or Rarely learning new things. And as bad as it is that most employees aren’t actually learning new skills at work each year, the situation is even worse: Employees who are always learning new things are 10 times more likely to be inspired than those who are not. Not only does learning new skills keep our careers progressing, it also significantly increases our fulfillment and inspiration on the job. And as you can see in the chart below from the study, the more we increase our learning on the job, the more inspired we become.)

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/dan-gainor-2019-was-american-journalisms-worst-year-ever-here-are-7-reasons-why
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hatred of Trump The left-wing media hate Trump more than they hate anyone. It’s the foundation of everything they do, from Twitter snark to promoting the bogus impeachment. Left-wing journalists have repeatedly compared Trump to the worst people in history. MSNBC host Donny Deutsch told viewers that Trump had “so many stunning parallels to what Hitler was doing in the early ’30s.” Then he added one of the memorably stupid comments of 2019: “I’m not saying Trump is going to slaughter 6 million Jews, but …” The media also hate Trump supporters. CNN Chief Media Correspondent Brian Stelter is one of many journalists who have referred to Trump voters as the “Trump cult.” He even inquired if the president was using “mind control.”)

I would focus on those in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The hate-filled war on straight white men has become so extreme that the University of Melbourne Student Union wants to ban white men from speaking in classes so women and transgenders will feel free to contribute to discussions. Insane social justice warriors demand that white men be silenced — not allowed to have an opinion regarding reviewing movies, climate change, and everything in between. Folks, we have allowed leftists to create a generation of hate-filled social justice warrior terrorists who believe that the world would be a much better place if we could get rid of scum-of-the-earth white guys like Pop Kern. While I am pleased that more and more people are fighting back, we need more people telling SJWs, “No! Back off! Get a life, and get a job!” The Democratic Party is the greatest distributor of class envy, racial hate, and division. Democrats have disdain for all things patriotic, wholesome, and good. The party has deteriorated to become a mob of hate-filled treasonous domestic terrorists who must be crushed in 2020.)

ATLANTIC
— It’s a Weird Time to Be Young and Conservative – EMMA GREEN (DIERSEN: In the organizations that you are a member of, what percent of the leaders of those organizations are conservative? A conservative is someone who defends and advances the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and the rest of the planks in the Republican Party platform. Based on the aforesaid definition, extremely few of the leaders of the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee are conservative.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— For you, what has changed from 10 year ago, since 2010? 10 years ago, I was the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, and the Milton Township Republicans Central Committee webmaster, but my critic/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have ended that. My wife worked for Central DuPage Hospital, but she is retired now. My mother, her sister, and one of her brothers were alive, but they have died. My aunt was living on her own, but she has been in assisted living the last 10 years. My hometown Crete was doing better than it is now. I was not on Social Security and Medicare, but I am now. I did not have type 2 diabetes, but I do now. I put together and sent out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email each and every morning, but by the end of 2015, I started putting one together and sending it out each and every evening too. – Dave Diersen
