WALL STREET JOURNAL
— The Woke Chinese Communist Party. Beijing uses progressive rhetoric to attack Western interests. – Editorial
(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats side with Communist China against America.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-woke-chinese-communist-party-11615153949
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Canada, the UK and Australia, three members of the Five Eyes alliance, have recently taken action to put pressure on China. They have formed a US-centered, racist, and mafia-styled community,” said a Feb. 23 editorial in Global Times. “They are becoming a racist axis aimed at stifling the development rights of 1.4 billion Chinese.” The Communist Party-run paper notes that the members of Five Eyes, an intelligence-sharing network, “have a strong sense of civilization superiority.” U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton is a “neo-Nazi and extreme racist” and “the Trump administration is an extremely typical white supremacy government.” By resisting this bloc of English-speaking countries, the editorial concludes, “China is not only defending its own interests, we are also defending the diversity of the modern world.” Note the use of “white supremacy” and “diversity” and “civilization superiority,” which come straight from the progressive critique of America as a country that is “systemically” racist and oppressive. The Global Times editors may be crude but they’ve obviously been reading the New York Times. Their dismissal of Mr. Cotton as racist is what you see on progressive Twitter.)

https://thehill.com/homenews/house/533720-republicans-gauge-support-for-trump-impeachment
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Centrist Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), an Iraq and Afghanistan war vet who’s clashed with Trump, has signaled support for impeachment. “I’ll vote the right way, you know, if I’m presented with that,” Kinzinger said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” program. “I just think it’s probably not the smartest move right now, but I think that’s going to be out of my hands.” A day later, after the article of impeachment was introduced, Kinzinger’s spokesman struck a harsher tone and indicated the Illinois Republican may very well vote with Democrats. “Congressman Kinzinger is committed to doing what is right, no matter the political cost. What President Trump did last week was incite violence and encourage a mob to attack the United States Capitol. Clearly, the President violated his oath of office and is unfit to serve,” the spokesman said in a statement. Kinzinger won re-election in November by 29 percentage points.)

GLENVIEW PATCH
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater asks “Do you know the name of your Republican Committee Person?” and says “Every one of us in Cook County, save two Townships, has an elected (or appointed) Republican office holder; they need to know how you feel!!”
(DIERSEN: 2,446,891 in Illinois voted for Trump. 193,611 in DuPage County voted for Trump. 20,080 in Milton Township voted for Trump. 157 in my precinct voted for Trump. What does the future hold for Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipal district, in your municipality, in your township, in your county district, in your county, and in Illinois? From what I see, the more of the following that is true about you, the more that hate-filled Trump-hating Trump haters will do to get rid of you once and for all: a) shared articles that were favorable to Trump, b) cast a Republican ballot in the March 17, 2020 primary, c) voted for Trump in the November 3, 2020 election, d) displayed a Trump yard sign, e) gave money to Trump, f) serve as a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain, and/or g) are running for an office as a Republican in the April 6, 2021 election.)
https://patch.com/illinois/glenview/do-you-know-name-your-republican-committee-person
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I spoke yesterday to a lifelong and staunch Democrat, a former candidate for elected office. I shared with her my conflict. She encouraged me to stay in the party and to make a change internally. As a resident of Cook County, that might not be easy. The fealty for the Head of the Republican Party (45) is disgusting to me. I have been and will continue to be a NEVER Trump Republican, and I have supported the Lincoln Project. . .Local governance and elections are the bedrock of our Constitutional Form of Government. People often say we are a Democracy when in actuality, we are a Representative Republic. In Illinois, the most basic unit of our government is the Republican and Democratic Committeewomen and Men elected to serve our respective parties. In Suburban Cook County, these representatives are ELECTED every four years at the Primary election for Governor. The political subdivision is the Township. At the March 20, 2018, Primary election, the following Republican Township Committeepersons were elected without opposition (please remember this point). . . I would venture to say that MOST Republican Primary Voters have no idea who their elected Committeeperson currently is, and even fewer have met them. The next Cook County Committeeperson election is likely March 15, 2022. A simple question should be put to every one of these elected leaders. On January 6, 2020, were you supportive of the Presidents incendiary remarks and, by extension, him; or do you stand for the Rule of Law, our Federal and State Constitutions, and the real Republican Party ideals which were on clear display before 2015. If you don’t like the answer you get, I hope that you will consider becoming a candidate for Republican Committeeperson. Our party must decide, are we with the 45th President or not. Only then, I believe, we will be able to relay the foundational stones of the Republican Party, one that I hope to be proud of again. If we can’t make an elegant transition to better government in the next four years I will turn in my lifelong Republican credentials.)

EAGLE FORUM
— Party Platforms Matter
https://eagleforum.org/publications/focus/elections-101.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is happening to our country? American ValuesIf there ever were a time to go into the voting booth with eyes wide open, November 3 of 2020 is that time. The past few months have been an unfolding drama of lawlessness in the streets, anti-American curricula planned for the schools, and overt attacks on foundational beliefs that most Americans hold dear. The upheaval has been swift and destructive, leading many to wonder how anyone either in or seeking an elected leadership position would not speak out forcefully against the carnage. Some Democrat leaders of the affected cities have either actively called on the police to stand down, or they have decided not to publicly condemn the burning, looting, and murdering in their cities. Many Republicans, on the other hand, have called for a return to law and order, expressing concern not only for residents and business owners but also for the first responders who are risking their lives trying to help injured people and protect property. Are these dichotomous responses indicative of the philosophies of these leaders’ political parties, or are they simply personal views that have nothing to do with party affiliation? A comparison of the Republican and Democrat party platforms can provide much-needed information about the worldviews and intentions of current leaders and those who might be elected on November 3. What is a party platform? Political party platforms are official declarations of the principles, policy stances, and action items of the parties. Every four years, political parties gather for their national conventions where they nominate their presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They also write their platforms, the documents that outline where they stand on specific issues and what they intend to do on those issues if their candidates are elected. The differences in 2020 are stark. Republican – Democrat  If one were to judge the 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms simply by tone, even a cursory review of both would yield important insights into each party’s opinions of the country and its issues. The Democrat Party platform outlines what many might consider to be extremist views of this country – that it is irredeemably racist, that people who were instrumental in the founding and early leadership of the country are unworthy of respect or remembrance, and that the government should take over huge areas of its citizens’ lives. Law enforcement must be overhauled, and white supremacy and nationalism are ingrained sins that must be overcome. The Republican Party platform, on the other hand, begins with a dedication page to those who protect the country and its citizens: We dedicate this platform with admiration and gratitude to all who stand strong in the face of danger so that the American people may be protected against it – The men and women of our military, of our law enforcement, and the first responders of every community in our land – And to their families.)
