(COMMENT: Should everyone involved in politics and in government be required to fully disclose how much education and how much money that their parents’ have/had? Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant in Chicago Heights, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly of heart failure in 1969 when I was 21 years old. My mother never attended high school.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/gavin-newsom-white-privilege-larry-elder-racism-inequality-california-recall-election-11631566580
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the polls going into Tuesday’s recall election in California hold up, Gavin Newsom will keep his job as governor. But if he does, no one should ever again take seriously progressive complaints about white privilege. Because if white privilege is a thing, Mr. Newsom is drenched in it. Mr. Newsom’s father was a well-connected state judge who once managed one of the trusts for the family of oil magnate J. Paul Getty. As for his son, the Los Angeles Times says that “a coterie of San Francisco’s wealthiest families has backed him at every step of his rise.” This privilege is reflected in the $70 million Mr. Newsom raised to fight the recall—more than five times the $13 million raised by his leading challenger, Republican Larry Elder.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Biden is responsible for the ‘systemic racism’ he professes to oppose – Zachary Faria
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/biden-is-responsible-for-the-systemic-racism-he-professes-to-oppose
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Urban Institute, black and Hispanic landlords have lower incomes and own fewer properties than their white counterparts. They are also “more likely to have a mortgage than own their building outright” and make up a disproportionate number of the landlords who have at least one mortgage in forbearance. This isn’t the first time that Biden, who professes to care so much about equity, has pushed damaging policies that disproportionately harm minorities. Biden’s Title IX changes, which treat students accused of sexual misconduct as guilty until proven, also disproportionately harm black college students. The systemic racism Biden has warned so much about is coming from inside the White House. In pursuing policies that make liberals feel good but are damaging when put in place, as both the eviction moratorium and Title IX changes are, Biden is perpetuating the very problem he claims to be so concerned about. The narrative around systemic racism somehow does not apply to these Democratic policies, proving once again that it is a political narrative and nothing more. That will remain true the next time Biden takes the podium to denounce another GOP voting law as being a new version of Jim Crow.)

— The critical race theory haters are blind to savage structural inequalities in our public schools – DAN WEISBERG
(DIERSEN: My parents sent me to a) Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961, b) Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod, and c) Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I had tremendous unfair advantages in life. If that is true, why did I take BAD JOBS that they would never stoop to take? I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. They hint/imply/argue/shout that I took those BAD JOBS because I am lazy and stupid. In my defense, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. Further, in my defense, those who hired me and those who promoted me in 1972, 1973, 1974, and 1986 were under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire and promote Democrats, and especially Democrats who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

— Laura Ingraham Confronts the Core Problem for Capitalists – Jon Schwarz
(DIERSEN: What did you do to qualify yourself for better paying jobs? I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32. According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, I am extremely stupid. Therefore, if I could do the aforesaid, just about anyone could do the aforesaid.)
https://theintercept.com/2021/08/14/laura-ingraham-capitalists-labor/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THURSDAY NIGHT on Fox News, Laura Ingraham straightforwardly expressed the key challenge for capitalism: How can bosses get people to do awful, degrading jobs for little pay in order to make other people rich? “The government is literally putting anvils, in many ways, on people’s shoulders, either through the mandates, regulations, and now through free money,” Ingraham said to her guest, reality TV host Jon Taffer. “If we are not causing people to be hungry to work, then we’re providing them with all the meals they need sitting at home,” Taffer agreed. “These benefits make absolutely no sense to us.” Capitalism has been grappling with this problem for hundreds of years, but as history and Ingraham show, the answer now is the same as it’s always been: The laboring classes must be forced into circumstances in which they must work or starve.)

https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/how-to-defeat-the-activist-media/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A workable solution, therefore, to the problem of the activist media must necessarily be one in which postmodern theory is jettisoned in favour of a new approach. One which abandons the neo-Marxist oppressor/oppressed paradigm, and the ‘us v them’ mentality it fosters. One which rejects the denial of objective truths to which we can all hold. Truth, beauty, reason all exist, and we must not be afraid to say so.)

(DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, Inclusion, and reparations.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2021/07/11/conservative-national-radio-host-wayne-allyn-root-announces-support-for-black-reparations-n2592315
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yes, it’s true. I’m that Wayne Allyn Root. I’m the nationally syndicated conservative radio talk show host. And former conservative television host on Newsmax TV. And bestselling conservative author of 14 books — including “Trump Rules,” “The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide,” “Angry White Male” and “The Murder of the Middle Class.” I’m the last guy you’d ever imagine coming out in support of reparations for black Americans. But it’s true. I’m going to be the first high-profile conservative to support reparations. Black Americans deserve reparations. Let’s be honest. Look at their cities in ruins. Black inner cities in America look like Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the atomic bombs hit. Have you been to any of them lately? Of course not. What sane person would take a chance by driving through the Brownsville neighborhood in Brooklyn, or Crown Heights, or Bedford Stuyvesant, or Harlem or the infamous South Bronx? Or how about Chicago’s black South Side? How about virtually all-black inner cities in Detroit; Baltimore; East St Louis; Newark, New Jersey; Oakland, California; Liberty City in Miami; Cleveland; New Orleans, Memphis, Tennessee; Atlanta and more. The list goes on and on. These places are synonymous with murder, violent gangs and violent crime. Black cities and neighborhoods are a war zone. A black-on-black genocide. An American tragedy. Not to mention the drug needles, poop, pee, condoms and garbage that litter their mean and hopeless streets. Black lives do matter. So, yes, they do deserve reparations. But who is to blame? It’s sure not white Americans. Most of us have had nothing to do with the decline of black America. The vast majority of white Americans have never done a bad thing to a black person in our lives. We don’t run their cities. We don’t go near their cities. We literally have nothing to do with black America. And none of us were alive for slavery or the civil war, or Jim Crow. My grandparents came to America in the 1920s. They lived in New York. They experienced their own prejudice and discrimination. My relatives had nothing to do with slavery, racism or any civil rights violations. So, yes blacks are owed reparations. But who’s to blame? There’s only one common denominator: DEMOCRATS. The Democratic Party and Democratic politicians are to blame. It’s the Democratic Party and Democratic politicians who should pay the trillions of dollars. It’s the policies of the Democratic Party that have led to poverty; misery; violent crime through the roof; retail theft on a level never imagined; homelessness; hopelessness; rampant drug dealing and addiction; no fathers in black homes; burned-out buildings; abandoned stores; lack of supermarkets; and streets filled with poop, pee, garbage, condoms and drug needles.)

TEXAS MONTHLY
— Meet the Four Republicans Who Want to Replace Allen West as Texas GOP Chair. The next party leader could continue to wage war on errant Republican elected officials or oversee a détente. – Jonathan Tilove
(DIERSEN: One could compare and contrast the Texas Republican Party with the Illinois Republican Party.)
https://www.texasmonthly.com/news-politics/texas-gop-chair-candidates/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: David Covey, one of four candidates to lead the Texas Republican party, has positioned himself as a moderate on perhaps the most pressing issue in the race. On the question of working with Republican elected officials, he doesn’t want Armageddon so much as a reasonable degree of tactical violence. “I don’t think we need to work hand in hand, but I don’t think we need to nuke them either,” Covey, currently the Orange County chairman and representative of Senate District 3 on the State Republican Executive Committee, said at a June 29 forum in Port Neches. “We have to be able to put pressure on our legislators, like a sniper. We pick our target, we ensure we don’t have collateral damage—even the party itself—and then we pull the trigger to make sure we get our priorities passed.” Martial metaphors aside, the 32-year-old Covey represents, believe it or not, something of the peace candidate to lead the Texas GOP past the testosterone-fueled, QAnon-inflected tenure of Allen West, a retired Army lieutenant colonel and former one-term congressman from Florida. For the past year of his short but chaotic reign as party chair, West mostly trained his unfriendly fire on fellow Republicans, including Governor Greg Abbott, whom he characterized as a tyrant for his pandemic response, and House Speaker Dade Phelan, whom he described as a traitor for seeking some Democratic votes to gain the gavel. On June 4, West surprised many by abruptly announcing that he would be stepping down as chairman effective July 11, midway through his two-year term. A month later, on July 4, West formally declared that he would be challenging Abbott, setting off what is likely to be a brutal primary battle.)

SALON
— American workers are refusing to take bad jobs — and that’s good for everyone, economists say. Some workers learned to stand up for themselves a bit more during, and due to, the pandemic. – MATTHEW ROZSA
(DIERSEN: Should people be expected to take bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs that they would never stoop to take. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997. To qualify myself for better jobs, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
