— Reflections on the 30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall A happy occasion – but also one with lessons that remain urgent today. – ILYA SOMIN (DIERSEN: I should write a book about actions that Democrat and RINO leaders of the State of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, etc. have taken to coerce conservative individuals, coerce conservative organizations, and coerce conservative companies to leave Illinois, to leave DuPage County, to leave Milton Township, and to leave Wheaton.) 
https://reason.com/2019/11/09/reflections-on-the-30th-anniversary-of-the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Decisions to “vote with your feet” are often better indicators of peoples’ true preferences than ballot box voting, since foot voters have better incentives to become well-informed about the alternatives before them. Even more powerful evidence is the fact that many East Germans and others fled communism even when doing so meant risking their lives. . .For millions of people around the world today, like for East Germans until 1989, international migration is the only realistic way to escape a lifetime of poverty and oppression. Yet governments—including those of liberal democracies—routinely use coercion to stop them from “voting with their feet.”)

— Journalists Who Exposed Planned Parenthood’s ‘Baby Body Parts’ Trade Found Guilty – Phelim McAleer
https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-journalists-who-exposed-planned-parenthoods-baby-body-parts-trade-found-guilty
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Peter Breen, a lawyer for Mr. Daleiden, said the judgement is a direct threat to undercover journalism in California and across the country. “Undercover Journalism now comes with a $2 million price tag,” he said. Mr. Breen blamed Judge William Orrick’s directions to the jury for the verdict. “The judge should have told them that Mr. Daleiden’s filming was protected by the First Amendment. Instead, he told them the First Amendment is no defense, which is outrageous and not the law. When you have a series of unfair rulings, you can’t expect a fair verdict,” Breen said.)

THOMAS MOORE SOCIETY
— Thomas More Society Will Fight Multimillion Dollar RICO Judgment in David Daleiden’s Baby Body Parts Exposé Trial
http://www.standardnewswire.com/news/4991215836.html
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: “This lawsuit is payback for David Daleiden exposing Planned Parenthood’s dirty business of buying and selling fetal parts and organs,” declared lead Thomas More Society defense attorney Peter Breen. “We intend to seek vindication for David on appeal. His investigation into criminal activity by America’s largest abortion provider utilized standard investigative journalism techniques, those applied regularly by news outlets across the country.” “David’s findings revealed practices so abhorrent that the United States Congress issued criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood, and numerous states and elected officials have moved to strip it of funding,” continued Breen. “Rather than face up to its heinous doings, Planned Parenthood chose to persecute the person who exposed it. I am fully confident that when this case has run its course, justice will prevail, and David will be vindicated.”)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County Board lifts 10-year ban, votes to allow video gaming in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-reverses-ban-video-gaming-st-1113-20191113-fr4ar6wz4zcixeaem5yaoybxne-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Commissioner Tim Elliott, R-Glen Ellyn, said the downside is people have to lose money at the machines in order for the county to receive any money in video gambling taxes. “The revenue we would receive as a county is a fraction of what our residents would lose,” Elliot said, estimating gamers would have to lose a total of $5.5 million for the county to take in $276,000. “That’s not economic development. That is the opposite of economic development.” . . . Board member Pete DiCianni, R-Elmhurst, requested the vote be tabled so that people would have a chance to weigh in, but other commissioners countered that the item was on the agenda and the public had notice of the meeting. DiCianni, who also suggested letting voters decide if the ban should be lifted, said allowing video gambling in unincorporated areas would put more pressure on municipalities that have banned it.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Still, six Republican board members voted against the repeal: Grant Eckhoff of Wheaton, Tim Elliott of Glen Ellyn, Pete DiCianni of Elmhurst, Sean Noonan of Elmhurst, Jim Healy of Naperville and Robert Larsen of Wheaton. Larsen said he has seen the negative impacts of gambling. And while lifting the ban will generate revenue for the county, he said, “not all revenue is good revenue.” “I don’t think it’s right for DuPage County,” he said. Elliott said he’s concerned that lifting the ban will create problems for businesses in municipalities that prohibit video gambling. “The two largest municipalities in my district — Wheaton and Glen Ellyn — have banned video gaming,” Elliott said. “What are you going to do to them when you allow video gaming in every unincorporated area that borders them?”)

The entire first 6 months that I worked for IRS was classroom and on-the-job training. During the almost 9 years that I worked for IRS and the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, both agencies provided me with lots of high-quality relevant in-house training.)

WASHINGTON POST
— A library wanted a New York Times subscription. Officials refused, citing Trump and ‘fake news.’ – Antonia Noori Farzan (DIERSEN: If you were me, what would you do encourage Republican Party leaders in Illinois to encourage Republicans in Illinois to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/11/05/new-york-times-citrus-county-florida-library-subscription-rejected-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The librarians of Citrus County, Fla., had what seemed like a modest wish: A digital subscription to the New York Times. For about $2,700 annually, they reasoned, they could offer their roughly 70,000 patrons an easy way to research and catch up on the news. But when their request came before the Citrus County commission last month, local officials literally laughed out loud. One commissioner, Scott Carnahan, declared the paper to be “fake news.” “I agree with President Trump,” he said. “I will not be voting for this. I don’t want the New York Times in this county.” In a move that is generating intense online backlash, all five members of the commission agreed to reject the library’s request. The discussion took place Oct. 24, the same day the Trump administration announced plans to cancel federal agencies’ subscriptions to the Times and The Washington Post. While there’s no apparent connection — the Citrus County meeting began several hours before the Wall Street Journal broke the news of the new edict — the controversy unfolding in central Florida highlights how politicians nationwide are parroting the president’s disparaging rhetoric about the media.)
