February 13 Morning Edition

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Media criticism of Kellyanne Conway reveals a double standard – Jonah Goldberg
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-kellyanne-conway-credibility-lies-20170213-column.html
— Roskam says he prefers doing town hall meetings over the phone – Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: Outstandingly, both Roskam and Hultgren endorsed me in 2000 when I first ran for Republican Precinct Committeeman.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted at Roskam that I have caused all of his problems, that I am causing all of his problems, and that I will forever cause all of his problems. They blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and in the past, they blamed what I did as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republicans Central Committee webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member, etc.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-peter-roskam-town-halls-met-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Roskam and Hultgren both have traditionally strong Republican-leaning districts, that didn’t prove to be the case in the balloting for president. Research from the FiveThirtyEight.com website shows the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, defeated Trump by 7 percentage points in Roskam’s district. In Hultgren’s district, regarded as more strongly Republican than Roskam’s, Trump won by 3.9 percentage points over Clinton.)
— Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the man just elected as Germany’s next president once called Trump a ‘hate preacher’ – Erik Kirschbaum  (DIERSEN: Will Steinmeier urge Germany to again declare war on America?  My grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI. My uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII. My father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/la-fg-germany-president-20170212-story.html
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps glorify and praise those in Broadview who come to America illegally, who stay in America illegally, and who bring others to America illegally.
https://www.pressreader.com/usa/chicago-tribune/20170213/281599535250206
— Pastors and Politics – Editorial (DIERSEN: From what I see, ever-increasingly, “religious leaders” talk and act like they are operatives or dupes for the Democrat Party.  Government is nasty. Politics is nasty.  My nasty churchgoing critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton and in Glen Ellyn hint/imply/argue/shout a) that they pray for GOD to send me straight to HELL and b) that the “religious leaders” in Wheaton and in Glen Ellyn despise if not hate me and want to send me straight to HELL.)
https://www.pressreader.com/usa/chicago-tribune/20170213/281818578582302
— Trust this  5 ways to tell if co-workers are unreliable – Thomas Koulopoulos (DIERSEN: My Democrat co-workers in the federal government helped my Democrat superiors and supervisors in the federal government get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
https://www.pressreader.com/usa/chicago-tribune/20170213/281908772895518
— Job interview red flags – Laura Garnett  (DIERSEN: The first red flag is “More certifications and degrees than actual work experience.”  When my Democrat superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, I had almost 18 years experience working for GAO, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $94,610-$122,991 and almost 9 years experience working for IRS, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $79,563-$90,173. But potential employers dismiss that hinting/implying/arguing/shouting that all GAO employees and that all IRS employees have always been grossly overpaid.)

— Job skills and opportunities deter violence – Laura Washington  (DIERSEN: What jobs have you had that could/should have been given to minorities, to females, to younger people, and/or to veterans?  According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, all the jobs that I had could/should have been given to minorities, to females, to younger people, and/or to veterans.  During the 1960s, I did yard work, delivered newspapers, washed dishes, cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, pumped gasoline, and delivered mail.  During the 1970s, I worked on an automobile assemble line, worked as a security guard, sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances, and collected delinquent taxes.  During the 1980s and 1990s, I audited federal agencies.)

QUAD CITY TIMES
— S&P laid blame at Rauner’s feet – Rich Miller (DIERSEN: Who lays blame at your feet?  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes lay blame at my feet for all of their problems, for all of your problems, for all of my problems, and for all of everyone’s problems. But wait, I am just the lowly GOPUSA Illinois Editor and a lowly Republican Precinct Committeeman.  I am not an officer of any township, ward, or county Republican party organization.  I am not an Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee member.  I am not an officer of the IRP and I am not the IRP National Committeeman.  Further, I am not an elected or appointed Republican official at the municipal, township, ward, county, state, or federal level.)

The more information you can take in can influence how you communicate with the world. If you are writing about a certain topic, you do your research. But why stop there? Strike up a conversation with your coworkers and get their opinions and views on different subjects. God teaches us to be in the world, so be in the world. Learn and listen to everything so you can properly communicate with others.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— 5 up-and-coming GOP governors to watch – W. JAMES ANTLE III  (DIERSEN: When were you “up-and-coming?” I was an up-and-coming IRS employee 1971-1974. In those 3 years, I went from GS-7 (currently $44,853) to GS-12 (currently $79,563).  But then, my Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974. It was all downhill from there.  I was somewhat of an up-and-coming GAO employee 1986-1988.  In those 3 years, I got assigned to audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division and promoted to GS-13 (currently $94,610).  But then, my Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the GAO manager who had hired me, who had gotten me assigned to audits of IRS, and who had promoted me to GS-13. It was all downhill from there.)

— All Joking Aside, Here’s How Sean Spicer Is Shaking Up the White House Press Briefing – LARRY BUCHANAN and KAREN YOURISH (DIERSEN: Since 2005, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have viciously used what happened with GOPUSA, Talon News, and Jeff Gannon (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News) against me.  They paint me as being a clone of Jeff Gannon.)
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/02/11/us/politics/sean-spicer-white-house-press-briefing.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 49 seats in the photo above (and chart below) have been assigned by the independent White House Correspondents’ Association since 1981, largely because administrations of both parties wanted to avoid the appearance of favoritism. The briefings in the first few weeks of the Trump administration have been packed, with many reporters who do not have assigned seats standing in the aisles or sitting in empty chairs. In the past, White House press secretaries tended to prioritize the reporters sitting in the first two rows. They would give the first question to The Associated Press (after decades of starting with Helen Thomas, long known as the dean of the White House press corps). Then it was on to the major networks, newspapers and other wire services. Mr. Spicer has bypassed this convention. As he goes around the room, Mr. Spicer typically calls on media organizations outside the mainstream before getting to more traditional news outlets.)
