— AS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S STRANGLEHOLD ON CHICAGO TIGHTENS: 23 shot, 9 fatally in Chicago weekend violence
— Lake County Dems seek to dump Sen. Link as party’s chair – CHARLES SELLE (DIERSEN: Who has declared their candidacy to serve as officers of your Republican county and township party organizations? Questions to ask them include: If elected, how would the following help you carry out your duties: a) your education, b) your political experience and work experience, c) your professional certifications and licenses, and d) length of time that you have lived in your municipality, township, county, and Illinois? What have you done and what will you do if elected to: a) discourage the sale and use of pot, b) discourage gambling, c) discourage the sale and drinking of booze, d) promote traditional marriage and the traditional family, e) promote homeownership, f) discourage abortion, g) discourage mass/illegal immigration, h) discourage diminution of First and Second Amendment rights, i) discourage patronage and political affiliation discrimination, j) discourage reverse discrimination, k) discourage age discrimination, l) encourage people to save for their retirement, m) discourage dependency on government, and n) discourage dependency on charity?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Regardless, party leaders expect to replace him as chair of county Democrats and coalesce behind party volunteer activist Lauren Beth Gash of Highland Park. In anticipation of change at the top, Gash, who founded the 10th Congressional District Democrats, has the support of a diverse group of prominent Lake County Democrats, I was told. Democrat committeemen and women will elect the party’s chair to a two-year term following the March 17 primary election, when the grassroots functionaries from both parties will be elected.)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: 9 CHA alums on tollway’s payroll – Marin Pyke (DIERSEN: What do CHA employees know about tollways? I should write a book about the first 6 years (1980-1985) and the last 9 years (1989-1997) that I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO. They assigned their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or young to audits of IRS a) who knew absolutely nothing about IRS, b) who had never taken a course in accounting, and/or c) did not want to be assigned to audits of IRS. Except 1986-1988, my Democrat GAO superiors wasted my knowledge of IRS that I had gained working for IRS for almost 9 years (1971-1980), the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. They wasted what I had learned passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, earning a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and passing the Certified Internal Auditor Examination on my first attempt in 1981. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or a veteran.)

— Wealthy Illinoisans (like me) should pay more income taxes Gov. J.B.

— On a campus that promotes diversity, DePaul’s faculty demographics say different – Lacey Latch (DIERSEN: Of course, to promote diversity at DePaul, DePaul will get rid of its faculty members who are White, male, and/or older. It is called reverse discrimination and age discrimination.)
— Consensus in Illinois grows around fully disclosing citizen legislators’ conflicts of interest – Greg Bishop (DIERSEN: Government is nasty, politics is nasty, Democrats are nasty. I should write a book about my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates who hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the ONLY REASON why I wanted GAO to assign me to audits of IRS was that I unethically wanted to punish those in IRS who had taken adverse actions against me.)

— While Ohio cuts health benefits to save pensions, Illinois’ crisis deepens – Ted Dabrowski and John Klingner (DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious that because I am a federal retiree, the federal government pays 75% of my and my wife’s health, dental, and vision insurance. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would never stoop to seek or take a job with the federal government. Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against the aforesaid.)

— How to Navigate Your Most Dangerous Decade – Liz Weston (DIERSEN QUESTION: What could Diersen have done to avoid being forced by his Democrat GAO superiors to take early retirement in 1997 when he was 49 years old? ANSWER: a) Diersen should NOT have become an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when he was 40 years old that charged his superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) Diersen should NOT have complained about political affiliation, reverse discrimination, or age discrimination, c) Diersen should have been a yes-man, d) Diersen should NOT have avoided the draft, and e) Diersen should have always been a Democrat.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Losing a job is almost always traumatic. In your 50s, job loss can be devastating — and devastatingly common. More than half the workers who entered their 50s with stable, full-time jobs were laid off or pushed out at least once by age 65, according to an analysis of employment data from 1990 to 2016 by the nonprofit newsroom ProPublica and the Urban Institute, a nonprofit think tank. Only 10% of those who lost a job ever found another that paid as much, and most never recovered financially. Such concerns may seem remote in a booming economy, when the official unemployment rate is 3.5% overall and just 2.4% for those 55 and over. But recessions are inevitable, and even in good times older workers can be more vulnerable to involuntary job loss because of age discrimination. These realities make it important to have a plan for navigating what could be your most dangerous decade.)

— Do You Have to Be Active to Have a ‘Successful’ Retirement? – Glenn Ruffenach (DIERSEN: If you are retired, what do you do with your time and money? I spend 10+ hours each and every day putting together and sending out a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email each and every morning and each and every evening. I should write a book about critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who hint/imply/argue/shout a) that I am wasting my time and money by doing that and/or b) that my emails have caused all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000.)

— LGBTQ Advocates In Chicago React To Pete Buttigieg’s Strong Iowa Results (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs destroy you if you fail/refuse to promote LGBTQ activity. I should write a book about Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs in Wheaton’s West District, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, and America who focus on destroying those fail/refuse to promote LGBTQ activity.)
— How Your Leadership Team Might Be Setting A Terrible Example – Ron Carucci (DIERSEN: I should write a book about how members of organizations are encouraged/forced to emulate the leaders of those organizations. I would focus on the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the Illinois Republican Party. I would focus on those leaders who glorify, praise, and pander to those members who glorify, praise, and pander to them. I would focus on those leaders who demonize, denigrate, condemn, and destroy those members who do not glorify, praise, and pander to them.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the everyday intensity of leading an organization, teams at the top can lose sight of the signals they send, and whether or not the example they’re setting is one they’d actually want followed. The team at the top of an part of any organization (enterprise, function, region, business unit) has disproportionate levels of influence over those it leads. People further down in the organization look to their leaders for cues on what’s acceptable (and what isn’t) and the team’s behaviors – both good and bad – will be emulated. Having your actions play out publicly as if on a jumbotron, is a huge responsibility, but unfortunately too many teams don’t take this responsibility as seriously as they should. The consequences can be farther reaching than most leadership teams realize. . .If a video camera captured your leadership team in action for a full day, how would you feel about having that video used as training for the rest of the organization? Being on a leadership team should be viewed as a privilege. And along with that privilege comes a responsibility to behave in ways you would be proud to have the rest of the organization emulate.)
— 5 Tips for Impressing Your Candidates During an Interview You need to appeal to talented people who can make an impact. – Jared Hecht (DIERSEN: To appeal to candidates who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, the Democrats who run the federal government can stress that the federal government gives preference big time to its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger, that is, that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or older unless they make GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
— CHICAGO TRIBUNE ARTICLE TITLE: Thank you for your feedback – Kevin Daum (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, you should NOT seek or take feedback from those who want you to fail. I should write a book about those who want me to fail. I would focus on Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, and RINOs in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)
— Lazy thinking perpetuates stereotypes. Here’s how to stop it – Simma Lieberman (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs stereotype Republicans as being White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. The more of the following that Republicans are, the more that they are stereotyped: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if their ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Ever-increasingly, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are members of the following groups promote the destruction of traditional marriage and the destruction of the traditional family: anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
