DAILY SIGNAL
— 5 ‘Terrifying’ Policies to Brace for Under Biden – Tony Perkins
https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/11/20/5-terrifying-policies-to-brace-for-under-biden/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The very first, Jeffrey explained on “Washington Watch” on Wednesday, is to codify Roe v. Wade—making it impossible for states to limit or ban abortion for any reason. “Joe Biden wants a federal law that makes abortion nationwide a quote-unquote ‘right.’ Which I say is evil.” And, to add to that evil, he wants to force every American to pay for it. That’s No. 2: Biden wants to end the Hyde Amendment. In other words, every federal spending bill could be used in some way to fund abortion. The pro-life Hyde Amendment, which has stood in the way of that radical free-for-all for more than 40 years, would be gone, Jeffrey said. . .No. 3: Biden would reinstate the Obamacare mandate, demanding that every business and nonprofit cover abortion-causing pills and contraception in their health plans. As Jeffrey points out, “Unfortunately, the Supreme Court never really settled that issue, [so] this is a place where Joe Biden right away could do some serious damage.” No. 4: Biden says that on Day One, “he’s going to force public schools and colleges to treat biological males as if they’re females. He literally says they’re going to have to let transgenders pick their own gender identity … So literally, Joe Biden will order public schools to say that anatomical males can play on the girls sports teams, use the girls’ shower rooms, and use the girls’ restrooms. Completely outrageous, absolutely evil.” Last but certainly not least, the Obama vice president says he would order insurance companies to cover gender-reassignment surgeries—not only for adults, but young, impressionable children. Similar to [the] Hobby Lobby case, he’d make family-owned businesses provide that “treatment,” which is actually mutilation. “These issues, particularly those last two,” Jeffrey said, “did not get nearly the kind of exposure and discussion they deserved before the election. I think there are many Americans who have no idea that Joe Biden is going to order public schools to let boys play on their girls sports teams and let boys use the girls’ locker rooms. “To me, that’s such a huge [overreach]. And it’s not just evil. It shows a distortion of [Biden’s] mind and heart. And I don’t think there’s any way he could defend it … .” Some of these things, of course, he can’t do without Congress’ help. And that’s where you and I come in—encouraging our senators and congressmen to stand firm.)

— Being good at your job won’t stop age discrimination – Jelle Lössbroek (DIERSEN: Democrats and RINOs use up-or-out to get rid of Republicans. The Democrats who run the federal government use up-or-out to get rid of employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they do not promote to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
https://theconversation.com/being-good-at-your-job-wont-stop-age-discrimination-149954

(FROM THE ARTICLE: How old you are could be more important to some employers than your experience, or your capacity to do the job – particularly for older candidates. That was the conclusion of research my colleagues and I recently published on age discrimination. We tested 500 managers across nine European countries, using job applications of people aged between 43 and 63, and showed more suitable job candidates did not experience less discrimination. Our findings are especially significant seeing as retirement ages are on the up. Since 2000 they have risen across Europe by an average of 2.5 years and in many countries are projected to increase even further. The COVID-19 pandemic is primarily increasing unemployment among younger workers, but acquiring a new job can be easier for them than for older people, precisely because of this inequality in hiring practices. Ageism is also known to force older workers to accept unfavorable job conditions. And we know prolonged unemployment for older people is painful both financially and for their mental health. Damaging stereotypes  One theory about age discrimination focuses on something known as “statistical discrimination”, which we looked at in our study. It is the idea that employers often lack the proper information to determine which candidate is best, and therefore they base their decisions on discriminatory stereotypes. Information refers, in this instance, to details about training, experience, motivation, performance, health, and retirement intentions, or what we called the six productivity indicators. Interviews with managers suggest employers still fear that older workers are sick more often and that they are less motivated, healthy and productive. So, given the choice between an old and a young candidate with identical CVs, an employer affected by statistical discrimination would supposedly choose the younger candidate. Without enough information to differentiate between the two, they would resort to the stereotype of the older candidate being less productive and sick more often. If this explanation for discrimination is true, then employers might discriminate less on age if they had more information. Positive information would be especially relevant, because this goes against stereotypes. Negative information only confirms what the stereotypes already suggested.)

— ‘Statistical dead heat’: With 75-vote difference, DuPage auditor race could go to recount – Katlyn Smith
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201118/statistical-dead-heat-with-75-vote-difference-dupage-auditor-race-could-go-to-recount-
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Anything with big numbers, whether it’s processing checks here at the county or counting votes, there is no system that’s perfect,” Grogan said. “There’s always going to be an error rate, and so we’re just going to go and check out and see if there were errors that constitute more than one one-hundredth of a percent, which is what I lost by.” Grogan could request a so-called discovery recount of ballots in up to 25% of the precincts countywide. The partial recount is conducted to help candidates determine if there are enough discrepancies to seek a court order for a complete recount. . .”I read numbers and understand trends, and it was by the end of election night … a statistical dead heat,” Grogan said. Grogan, a licensed CPA and the president of the Illinois Association of County Auditors, said he’s heard from election lawyers and elected officials from around the state offering to help with a recount process. “I’m both gratified for the people that did support me, and I am gratified for having at least the 12 years to serve,” he said. “And if certain stars align in other ways, if I get to continue to serve, that will be another blessing on top of that.” . . . “I had a lot of crossover votes,” he said. “I got substantially more votes than my party’s top of the ticket, so, I mean I think that appeal was real.” Grogan would have until Nov. 30 to request a discovery recount. Newly elected countywide officials are scheduled to take their seats Dec. 1.)

— Conservatives, beware: The politics of retribution begins now – Editorial
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/nov/10/editorial-the-politics-of-retribution-begins-now/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Conservatives, beware — the politics of retribution and score-settling are upon you. If you think for a second that your vote to reelect President Donald Trump was interpreted as a ballot cast for the candidate you believe best championed your everyday concerns of life, liberty and the pursuit of justice, former First Lady Michelle Obama begs to differ. According to her and, one might assume, the DNC apparatus, “tens of millions” of you voted for the president even though it meant “supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division.” Comments like this deserve scorn and are normally best passed over unremarked. Except the sentiments of Mrs. Obama are part of an unsettling indication that unspecified forms of payback are coming. Last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ominously tweeted: “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” And almost as if by sorcery, former staffers of Barack Obama and Pete Buttigieg responded. Why yes, they publicly noted, we are keeping lists, and we call our Little Red Book “The Trump Accountability Project.” The stated purpose of this (vague) initiative is to “Remember what [Trump supporters] did” by compiling a database of the names of anyone who “worked for the Trump for President campaign, Republican National Committee, and affiliated organizations”; those who “worked as political appointees in the Trump Administration”; and “individuals who used their wealth and influence to bundle money for Trump.” Political witch-hunts — straight from Mao Zedong and Pol Pot playbooks, will expand the definition of “Trump supporter.” For a short time, the former Democratic staffers left up the public Excel sheet so interested parties could read the names of the accused in real-time. Tabs for donors, endorsers, appointees, judges, campaign staff — you name it — were all searchable. Access has since been restricted, but will doubtless soon open again to the public. After all, that’s the whole point. To name, shame and enshrine in perpetuity anyone with the slightest affiliation to the Trump administration. So, conservatives, no matter how honorable and kind-hearted you may be, no matter the good you’ve done in the world, the people behind the Trump Accountability Project are here to ensure that future employers, friends, loved ones, strangers, your priest, rabbi, neighbors and, if possible, God himself, know your crimes. Or as NBC’s Jake Tapper recently put it, “I truly sympathize with those dealing with losing — it’s not easy — but at a certain point one has to think not only about what’s best for the nation (peaceful transfer of power) but how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity.” So, the stuff of dystopias is happening. The question, for all Americans, now becomes: What are we going to do about it?)
