— Sheriff collects $90K pension – David Giuliani
— Rep. Rodney Davis tours hometown after tornado strikes (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. What is your hometown? My hometown is Crete. I lived there 1948-1972. My brother continues to live there in a home that our grandfather, who fought the Germans in WWI, had built in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864 after he had homesteaded a farm in Crete in 1854. He had immigrated from what is now Germany in 1844 and worked in a brick factory in Chicago. I get defensive when my anti-German American anti-Lutheran critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes demonize, denigrate, and condemn Crete as always having been full of German-American Lutherans who are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things.)
— Baise: Rauner ‘turning his back on organized labor community hurt’ (DIERSEN: What communities are/were you a member of? I was a member of the labor community for almost 12 years 1966-1969 and 1971-1980. Currently, I am a member of the following communities: Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older people, married people, non-poor people, gun owners, draft avoiders, German Americans, those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, retired federal employees, homeowners, American-nameplate car owners, childless people, pet-less people, etc.)

For me, it is seeing the future of Illinois under the Democrats as being extremely bleak for those who share my demographics. Ever-increasingly, the Democrats who run Illinois make it clear that they will get rid of those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— Democrats have a mega-majority in the California Legislature. Expect them to swing for the fences – GEORGE SKELTON (DIERSEN: Democrats have a mega-majority in Illinois. Will they use it to drive out of Illinois once and for all those individuals, organizations, and companies that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time?)
— Looking for your roots? For Asians, blacks and Latinos, DNA tests don’t tell whole story – Elizabeth Weise (DIERSEN: What is your national origin? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece. What if I had pretended to be of Swedish national origin?)

— Harvard Student Faces Eviction After Roommates Saw MAGA Hat, Ransacked Her Room for (Legal) Guns A local landlord in Massachusetts is trying to boot a female Harvard graduate student from her apartment because of her legally owned guns. (DIERSEN: What would the Trump-haters do to you if you wore a MAGA hat outside of your residence, in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, or in Illinois? In my precinct, only 21 voted for Trump in the 2016 Republican primary and only 137 voted for Trump in the 2016 general election. I should write a book about those in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois a) who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican and b) who are ever-increasingly filled with hatred of Trump. In my precinct, they voted for all the Democrats on the ballot in the November 6, 2016 election. To punish Trump, they voted for Casten, Pritzker/Stratton, Raoul, White, Mendoza, Frerichs, Ellman, Carrier, LaPlante, Whalen, Kaczmarek, Ozog, Afzal, Hebreard, Jacobsen, and Davenport.)
WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Iowa Democrats Say They Want Generational Change – Reid J. Epstein and Janet Hook (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, those who dominate America are dumping America’s citizens who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. In 2016, members of the foresaid groups voted for Trump to slow down if not stop their being dumped. I should write a book about those in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who ever-increasingly make clear that they want government to get rid of those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Why Politicians Want the U.S. to Guarantee You a Job – Katia Dmitrieva (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn a) the federal government as being the “employer of last resort” and b) past, present, and future federal employees as being bad, lazy, stupid, the dregs of society, and even worse things. I would focus on federal employee-haters who talk and/or act like they are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things. They want the federal government to hire and retain minorities and females so that the private sector does not have to.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The vision of President Roosevelt, and of some recent proponents, is for the government to act as the employer of last resort. Teaching, child care, after-school programs, health care, elderly care and construction are among the types of jobs mentioned. More recent versions would have nonprofit groups and state and local governments act as the employers, with the federal government playing a secondary role as a provider of training. The basic idea is that every citizen would have a job at a decent-enough wage to cover housing, transportation and food. Booker’s legislation would create federally funded pilot programs in up to 15 communities. Most proposals would also provide benefits such as health care and sick leave.)
— George H.W. Bush Modeled the Kinder, Gentler and More Colorful GOP That Could Have Been The 41st president’s own family gave him reason to work toward a more inclusive and diverse Republican Party. – Keli Goff (DIERSEN: My Democrat GAO superiors took Bush’s 1991 Civil Rights Act as being a directive to get rid of once and for all their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But more than one GOP source has told me over the years that while President Bush wasn’t a cheerleader for liberal affirmative action policies, you could call him a pioneer of what is now called “The Rooney Rule.” Named after Dan Rooney, the late owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the rule calls for the NFL to interview qualified minority candidates for coaching openings. Due to its effectiveness, the rule has formally and informally been adopted across other industries. Bush was known to be conscientious of asking for qualified minority candidates to be included for consideration to fill major roles. This was allegedly one of the ways Colin Powell went from unlikely candidate, to the first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.)
— The New Demand for an Old Idea: Guaranteed Jobs Now The demand for genuine full employment broadens our imagination of what a federal government committed to caring for its people would look like. – David Stein and Ady Barkan (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn a) the federal government as being the “employer of last resort” and b) past, present, and future federal employees as being bad, lazy, stupid, the dregs of society, and even worse things. I would focus on federal employee-haters who talk and/or act like they are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things. They want the federal government to hire and retain minorities and females so that the private sector does not have to.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There has not been this much attention for a federal job guarantee since 1978, when the Humphrey-Hawkins Full Employment Act limped across the legislative finishing line. Amid tremendous lobbying from business organizations, the bill lost its key proposal to make the federal government the employer of last resort when private employers were not up to the task.)
— The DNC is Becoming the Party of Wealthy Elites – NATE HOCHMAN (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents are wealthy elites. They and their operatives and dupes look down on me, belittle me, and badmouth me a) because I was a lowly wage earner for 33 years 1964-1997, b) because I was a federal employee for almost 30 of those 33 years, and c) because I do not a degree from an Ivy League university.)
