— Jewish communities face ‘enduring threat’ in the US, federal authorities warn – Josh Margolin, Ella Torres, and Luke Barr (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats are nasty. I should write a book about my Democrat superiors in the federal government who focused on getting my many Jewish Democrat superiors to take adverse actions against me. They stressed that I was a Republican, that I was 100% German national origin, that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, and that I had lived in Crete 1948-1972. My many Democrat Jewish superiors in the federal government played a major role in all the adverse actions that the federal government took against me. 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 $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

BOSTON HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to this article, “Democrats often react badly to negative campaigning.” If you have any skeletons in your closet, you should not seek or hold any kind of government or political office as a Republican. Democrats want those Republican candidates to win primary elections who have the biggest skeletons in their closets. The bigger the skeletons that candidates have in their closets, the easier that it is to defeat those candidates in general elections. If you were a Republican candidate and your primary opponent hinted/implied/argued/shouted that you were a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, and/or bigot, how would you respond? Would you stress the skeletons that your opponent has in his/her closets that the Democrats would use to defeat your primary opponent in the general election?

— Navy Secretary touts importance of following ‘lawful order’ after being fired for undermining his boss – Samantha Chang (DIERSEN: A few of my Democrat superiors in the federal government were not happy that Democrat politicians forced them to carry out Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion orders, that is, to give preference to their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran, that is, to discriminate against their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. My Democrat IRS superiors got rid of the IRS manager who promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. My Democrat GAO superiors got rid of the GAO manager who hired me in 1980, got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986.) 
https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/11/26/navy-secretary-touts-importance-of-following-lawful-order-after-being-fired-for-undermining-his-boss-857541
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Unemployed Navy Secretary Richard Spencer — who was fired by Defense Secretary Mark Esper for insubordination — slammed President Trump, saying he made the wrong decision when he reversed the demotion of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was prosecuted for killing an ISIS terrorist. “I don’t think [Trump] really understands the full definition of a warfighter,” Spencer told CBS News. “A warfighter is a profession of arms. And a profession of arms has standards that they have to be held to and they hold themselves to.” Spencer was reacting to President Trump’s statement defending his decision to reverse Gallagher’s demotion.)

They worked in a brick factory for 10 years and then homesteaded a farm in Crete.) 
http://interactive.wbez.org/curiouscity/chicago-native-americans/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The new legislation gives employers a way to maintain a drug-free workplace, but the employee would have to be impaired, not simply test positive for cannabis in a drug screening. “An employer may consider an employee to be impaired or under the influence of cannabis if the employer has a good faith belief that an employee manifests specific, articulable symptoms while working that decrease or lessen the employee’s performance of the duties or tasks of the employee’s job position, including symptoms of the employee’s speech, physical dexterity, agility, coordination, demeanor, irrational or unusual behavior, or negligence or carelessness in operating equipment or machinery; disregard for the safety of the employee or others, or involvement in any accident that results in serious damage to equipment or property; disruption of a production or manufacturing process; or carelessness that results in any injury to the employee or others,” according to the law. The employer would also have to offer time for the worker to appeal the matter.)

Previously, they wanted the following to punish me: TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, GAO, IRS, etc. My critics/opponents a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the IRP platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or e) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid.)

Or at least, that’s what LGBT Inc., the activist class and lobby, is claiming, based on the results of a new YouGov/Out Magazine survey into the 2020 election. The left-wing activist organization Human Rights Campaign, essentially an arm of the Democratic Party, put out a press release touting the poll’s results, declaring that “LGBTQ Voters Strongly Condemn Trump.” It highlighted selected figures from the survey and concluded, “One thing is clear, while LGBTQ people are diverse in race, identity and opinion, they are unified in opposition to the Trump-Pence administration.”)

— 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.)

DAILY HERALD
— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County lifts ban on video gambling – Robert Sanchez
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191112/dupage-county-lifts-ban-on-video-gambling
(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?”)
