(DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

(DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who fraudulently paint themselves as being conservative to give themselves standing to destroy conservative individuals and organizations. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and/or age discrimination. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater says “Kinzinger said Friday that only a handful of his Republican colleagues in the House actually believe ex-President Donald Trump’s election lies.” How soon, if not already, will hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), in your Republican county party organization, and in your Republican township/ward party organization succeed getting rid of all Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains like me who refuse to share their hatred of Trump? Of course, I will use GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters to draw attention to the efforts by hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-supporters in the IRP, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization to get rid of Republican Precinct Committeemen like me who refuse to hate Trump.

— The ‘Handmaiden of Trump’: How Elise Stefanik Went From Moderate to MAGA – CHARLOTTE ALTER
(DIERSEN: I have never been a handmaiden of anyone and I never will. My critics/opponents destroy those like me a) who they cannot manipulate/dominate, b) who refuse to glorify and praise them, c) who refuse to pander to them, d) who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, e) who refuse to cover-up their wrongdoing, and/or f) who refuse to give them money.

Wanting to earn money to help support my mother and brother, to buy cars, to pay for graduate business and accounting courses, to buy a new town home in 1972, and to buy condo in downtown Chicago in 1974 and 1976 motivated me to accept jobs selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; working for Oldsmobile in 1971, pumping gasoline 1971-1972; and collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. Enhanced UI benefits have led workers to hold out for better terms than employers are willing to provide. For weeks now, small business owners in general — and restaurateurs in particular — have been lamenting their inability to find workers (at the wages they’re used to paying). And they have blamed this difficulty on a simple fact: Thanks to the American Recovery Plan’s $300 federal unemployment benefits, a lot of workers can live comfortably on Uncle Sam’s dime.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-hater says “THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS ONLY GETTING MORE ATTACHED TO TRUMP The anticipated ouster of bedrock conservative Liz Cheney is the latest example of Republicans abandoning principles in their cultlike devotion to the former president, who may soon return to the rally stage.”

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Hate-filled LGBTQ-promoting Republican-hating Republican-haters use Cheney to promote hatred against Republicans.
