(FROM THE ARTICLE: The purpose of this report is to expose and refute some of the longstanding statistical lies and propagandistic myths of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) activist movement. With media support, homosexual and leftist activists now openly campaign to banish dissenting conservative voices. This dangerous dynamic gives the homosexual-transgender lobby nearly full rein to advance its agenda, which now includes:)

— Affordable Child Care: The Secret to a Better Economy – Editorial  (DIERSEN: To paint me as being someone who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and as someone who has always been privileged, my critics/opponents have always stressed the fact that my father made enough money that a) my mother could stay home and raise me and b) they could afford to sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, never attended college, worked in the office of a chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and did not buy a new car until he was 45 years old in 1967 and it was a bottom of the line Chevy with almost no options.)

My critics/opponents are disgusting scapegoaters. They have lots of religious, government, political, and financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.

— Mike Pence Releases Financial Disclosure Report  Report appears to show a negative net worth outside of a state pension – REID J. EPSTEIN AND RICHARD RUBIN  (DIERSEN: What is your income?  What is your net worth?  My wife and I are financially secure.  My critics/opponents hint/imply/argue/shout that we have money because a) I avoided the draft, b) I have always been grossly overpaid, c) my wife has always had a job, and d) we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents.  Virtually all the operatives and the dupes that my critics/opponents send after me have severe financial, health, and/or other problems.)
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2016/08/18/mike-pence-releases-financial-disclosure-report/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence on Thursday night released a financial disclosure form that appears to show a negative net worth outside of a state pension—the starkest possible contrast from the top of the GOP ticket. While presidential nominee Donald Trump has boasted at length on the size of his financial disclosure statement and his personal net worth, Mr. Pence’s federally mandated disclosure shows the picture of financial simplicity. He reports no significant savings accounts, mutual funds or 401(k) accounts from before he entered elected office. Mr. Pence, who is 57 years old, earned a six-figure congressional salary from 2001 to 2013. Before being elected to the House, Mr. Pence was a talk-radio host in Indiana. His disclosure states he is paid $173,860 as Indiana’s governor. “Our family has been honored to serve our state and nation,” Mr. Pence said in a statement released by the Trump campaign. “Like many American families, we have been fortunate and blessed to raise three wonderful children and put them through college while doing work that we love.” The Trump campaign said Mr. Pence “will release his tax returns in the near future.” Mr. Trump has said he will not release his tax returns because he says he is under an audit from the Internal Revenue Service. Mr. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, said on CNN on Wednesday that he will not allow Mr. Trump to make his tax returns public until the audit is completed. On the form, Mr. Pence listed as assets a defined-benefit Indiana pension worth up to $1 million and up to $30,000 in other state retirement accounts. He has at most $45,000 in cash and college savings accounts and at least $95,000 in student loans taken out for his three children. He doesn’t list any holdings in stocks, mutual funds or rental property. Those totals don’t include the value of any real estate that he doesn’t rent out. And it doesn’t include any federal pension or defined-contribution retirement plan he has from his time in the U.S. House of Representatives. Those assets aren’t required to be listed on the form, which is designed to reveal conflicts of interest, not net worth.)

— These Companies Are Changing the World—and They’re Hiring – Erika Fry  (DIERSEN: How soon, if not already, will employers officially announce that they will not hire you, and that they will fire you if you already have a job there, if you do not a) promote LGBTQ activity, b) promote abortion, c) promote mass/illegal immigration, d) promote race and gender based preference giving, d) promote age discrimination, e) promote pot, booze, gambling, and other vices, f) promote abolition of the Second Amendment, and g) promote hatred of those who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)

BUSINESS INSIDER
— Corporate diversity programs don’t work, and a new study shows why – James Dennin  (DIERSEN: Since at least the 1960s, the federal government’s top priority has been a) to hire, to retain, and to promote Democrats, and especially Democrats who are minority, female, younger, and/or veteran and b) to make way for them by getting rid of federal employees who are Republican, and especially those who are White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

GLOBE AND MAIL
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that they want to get rid of “white people, especially white men, who don’t have college degrees.”  If Clinton wins, how fast will she get rid of “white people, especially white men, who don’t have college degrees?” After she gets rid of the aforesaid, how fast will she get rid of those who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, older, rich, gun owners, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?
