(COMMENT: GAO works for Congress. In Diersen v.

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 $20,361 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

Further, I knew that my Democrat superiors would advise me to do things that I would not do, namely, become a Democrat, help them get rid of their employees who shared my demographics, promote the Democrat Party platform, promote political affiliation discrimination, promote reverse discrimination, promote age discrimination, etc. Instead, I took my own advice and 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.

TECH CRUNCH
— News aggregator SmartNews raises $230 million, valuing its business at $2 billion – Sarah Perez
(COMMENT: GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters are free of charge and they contain no advertising.)
https://techcrunch.com/2021/09/15/news-aggregator-smartnews-raises-230-million-valuing-its-business-at-2-billion/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Founded in 2012 in Japan, the company launched to the U.S. in 2014 and expanded its local news footprint early last year. While the app’s content team includes former journalists, machine learning is used to pick which articles are shown to readers to personalize their experience. However, one of the app’s key differentiators is how it works to pop users’ “filter bubbles” through its “News From All Sides” feature, which allows its users to access news from across a range of political perspectives. . .The aggregator’s business model is largely focused on advertising, as the company has said before that 85-90% of Americans aren’t paying to subscribe to news. But SmartNews’ belief is that these news consumers still have a right to access quality information. In total, SmartNews has relationships with more than 3,000 global publishing partners whose content is available through its service on the web and mobile devices. To generate revenue, the company sells inline ads and video ads, where revenue is shared with publishers. Over 75% of its publishing partners also take advantage of its “SmartView” feature. This is the app’s quick-reading mode, an alternative to something like Google AMP. Here, users can quickly load an article to read, even if they’re offline. The company promises publishers that these mobile-friendly stories, which are marked with a lightning bolt icon in the app, deliver higher engagement — and its algorithm rewards that type of content, bringing them more readers. Among SmartView partners are well-known brands like USA Today, ABC, HuffPost and others. Currently, over 70% of all SmartNews’ pageviews are coming from SmartView first.)

— Tricky mailer from Democrats flaunts Trump’s endorsement of Youngkin – Emily Brooks
(COMMENT: My critics/opponents urge Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct to not seek my support and to reject my support.

My critics/opponents stress the many adverse actions that the following have taken against me: a) leaders of conservative and Republican organizations, b) leaders of governments, and c) Republican candidates on ballots in my precinct, their political consultants, major donors, fundraisers, pollsters, campaign managers, campaign staff members, and campaign volunteers. My critics/opponents stress that the aforesaid sided with those who stopped Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks.)
