— Woman impersonated lawmaker’s wife, snuck into GOP retreat – AP (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps, anti-conservatives, and anti-Republicans are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their end. They are disciples of Saul Alinsky.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A woman impersonated the wife of a GOP lawmaker and snuck into the congressional Republican retreat in Philadelphia Thursday, the same day President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence appeared, retreat organizers told lawmakers late Saturday. The revelation came as the nonprofit Congressional Institute that organizes the retreat investigates how audio of the gathering leaked. In an email to GOP lawmakers, institute president Mark Strand did not directly say that the impersonator was the same person who leaked the audio, but that was the implication. “The Congressional Institute is continuing to investigate this breach in order to fully understand how it happened and to ensure it does not happen again,” said Strand’s email, which was obtained by The Associated Press. The audio was leaked to several news outlets and first reported by The Washington Post. It reveals lawmakers airing concerns about the practical difficulties and political risks of repealing and replacing President Barack Obama’s health care law, among other things. There is also audio of a question-and-answer session with Pence, indicating that the intruder was in the same room as the vice president, which raises security concerns. It was not immediately clear if she was also present for the session with Trump, who spoke before Pence but did not engage in a private discussion with lawmakers. The email says that the unauthorized person “misrepresented herself on multiple occasions to retreat organizers as the spouse of an elected official” and used counterfeit credentials. She went through the same security checkpoints as every other attendee, including magnetometers, and was escorted from the event around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, after Trump and Pence left. The email says officials are working to “ascertain the identity of the woman in question.” Capitol Police and the Sergeant at Arms are investigating, according to a statement Saturday night from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., who chairs the House GOP conference.)

Ever-increasingly, as the years went by, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates hated the agency’s Republican employees more and more and more, and especially its Republican employees like me who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

— Rauner contract offer generous – Editorial (DIERSEN: What major “offers” have you accepted? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, I “accepted” my Democrat GAO superiors’ early retirement “offer.” They made it very clear that if I did not accept their “offer,” constructively, they would kill me. Of course, since 1997, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have shouted that the “offer” was far too generous – in today’s dollars, $50,856 Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension and $17,288 health/dental/vision insurance subsidy for life. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $94,610-$122,991, and I paid 7% of my salary into the CSRS. In addition, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 33.)
