GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Where is the Republican primary strength in your township? It definitely is in the west side of DuPage County’s Milton Township. In the March 20, 2018 Republican primary, of the township’s 130 precincts, of its 73 precincts on its west side, 40 were RED (between 35.5% and 17.8% of registered voters cast Republican ballots), 19 were YELLOW (between 17.6% and 13.2%), and 14 were BLUE (between 13.2% and 1.1%). Of its 57 precincts on its east side, only 3 were RED (between 35.5% and 17.8%), 25 were YELLOW (between 17.6% and 13.2%), and 29 were BLUE (between 13.2% and 1.1%). – Dave Diersen

DAILY HERALD
— Smart strategies to buy a home in a tight market – Marilyn Kennedy Melia (DIERSEN: What would discourage you from buying a particular home? For me, it would include knowing that my neighbors would be 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, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. What percent of those in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois are 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, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time? In my precinct, in the 2016 general election, 211 voted for Clinton while only 137 voted for Trump. In the 2016 primary election, 93 voted for Kasich while only 21 voted for Trump. However, in the March 20 primary election, 68 voted for Ives, while only 43 voted for Rauner, and only 15 of Milton Township’s 130 precincts had a higher percentage Republican turnout – 122 (22.2%) of the precinct’s 504 registered voters cast Republican ballots. Further, the precincts to the east, southeast, southwest, and west all had high Republican turnouts in the March 20 primary election. Jeanne Ive’s Precinct 65 to the east had a 24.9% turnout, Robert Jacobsen’s Precinct 25 where Roskam lives to the southeast had a 24.1% Republican turnout, Beth Tatro’s Precinct 130 to the southwest had a 33.5% Republican turnout, and Ron Menna’s Precinct 85 to the west had a 21.8% Republican turnout.)

They a) decry my passing the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, b) decry my passing the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) decry my passing the Federal Service Entrance Examination in 1970, d) decry my passing the Post Office employment examination in 1966, and e) decry my passing all the tests necessary to earn a master’s degree in finance from IIT in 1997, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970.)

QUAD CITY TIMES

(FROM THE ARTICLE: That was made clear during last weekend’s Republican Party of Iowa state convention, attended by roughly 1,200 party activists, leaders and elected officials. State party chairman Jeff Kaufmann devoted much of his remarks to the campaign for governor, but also rallied the crowd to express their support for the president. Kaufmann asked the crowd to show whether they support Trump, and nearly everyone in the building stood and cheered. “Keep it up, President Trump,” Kaufmann yelled during his typically fiery speech. Kaufmann told the crowd he realizes some of Trump’s tweets “make you pause,” but said Trump must use Twitter to communicate to his supporters.)

TOWNHALL
— Trump Valiantly Tried to Save America – Ilana Mercer
https://townhall.com/columnists/ilanamercer/2018/06/23/trump-valiantly-tried-to-save-america-n2493448
(FROM THE ARTICLE: By now most Americans, for or against, get the idea. All an individual or family need do to live in America, and off the avails of the American taxpayer, is to arrive at an approved port of entry and “lodge a legal claim to stay.” That’s it. The same understanding animates an entire, parasitical industry that has arisen to coach the claimants in their claims-making. The refugee and illegal-migrant racket sprung-up on the backs of the American people is Third World cronyism at its best. “The Trump administration plans to pay a Texas nonprofit nearly half a billion dollars, this year, to care for immigrant children who were detained crossing the U.S. border illegally, reports Bloomberg.” Did you vote for that? Brazen border-crossers “rarely hide from border agents,” for they know the rules of the game are that there aren’t any rules. Not for them, not for the lawless. The law-abiding pay. The profits from the immigration industry, material and political, are privatized; the costs are socialized. It has taken a president, in the person of Donald J. Trump, and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, to expose for all to see a shameful, likely irreversible, fact: American birthright has been frittered away for a mess of pottage. In exchange for throwing America open to The World, Americans get crime, poverty, unemployment, depressed wages; environmental despoliation; overburdened public services, and zero comity and harmony across their communities. Or, more like hate. For to oppose this transformative political give-away is to be branded a hater and be hounded, at home, by a Fifth Column of values-enforcers. There’s no finessing it. This selling of the patrimony and heritage of Americans is theft, plain and simple. There is no hiding it. Peddling of stolen goods for political favors is the handiwork of political representatives, of legislators. Through legislative sleight-of-hand and international treaty making American politicians have incrementally robbed a people of their national and territorial sovereignty, as well as their shared identity.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Republicans ignore Trump, keep pushing to pass immigration reform – Susan Ferrechio (DIERSEN: If you claim to be a Republican, but you oppose E-Verify, you shout that you are a RINO who has been bought off by employers who want cheap labor. If you claim to be Republican, but you want “a more inclusive and easier pathway to citizenship for Dreamers,” you shout that you are a Democrat.)
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/republicans-ignore-trump-keep-pushing-to-pass-immigration-reform
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans say negotiations now center on whether to add E-Verify and an immigrant agriculture program into the legislation, and many are hoping for a vote next week. Many conservatives have been clamoring for the bill to include a provision mandating employers use E-Verify to ensure new hires are legal. “It might be a difference maker,” Cole said. Meanwhile, an agriculture or “guest worker” program would attract votes from lawmakers whose districts rely on immigrant farm workers. . .The 41 GOP “no” votes were cast mostly by moderates who wanted a more inclusive and easier pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, who came illegally as children. The measure was authored by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. It would provide legal status for about 700,000 Dreamers and offered a much more difficult pathway to citizenship. Conservatives say the leadership should simply take the Goodlatte bill and make a few changes to attract moderates, such as expanding the pathway to citizenship to all 1.8 million people who fit the Dreamer category. The Goodlatte measure, which is co-authored by Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, includes both E-Verify and a guest worker program. It ends chain migration, the diversity visa lottery program, and authorizes border wall funding.)

BROOKINGS
— U.S. White population declines – William H. Frey (DIERSEN: Of course, anti-Whites are overjoyed.

Anti-Whites demonize, denigrate, and condemn individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2018/06/21/us-white-population-declines-and-generation-z-plus-is-minority-white-census-shows/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: he U.S. Census Bureau’s release of race and age statistics for 2017 points to two noteworthy milestones about the nation’s increasingly aging white and growing diverse population. First, for the first time since the Census Bureau has released these annual statistics, they show an absolute decline in the nation’s white non-Hispanic population—accelerating a phenomenon that was not projected to occur until the next decade. Second, the new numbers show that for the first time there are more children who are minorities than who are white, at every age from zero to nine. This means we are on the cusp of seeing the first minority white generation, born in 2007 and later, which perhaps we can dub Generation “Z-Plus.”)

DEMOCRATIC GOVERNORS ASSOCIATION
— Rauner Asked if He Was Getting Ives Endorsement… 93 Days after Primary (DIERSEN: To promote LGBTQ activity is to a) reject those who voted for Ives and b) pander to those who will never vote for a Republican. Ever-increasingly, Rauner is running as an anti-Republican.)
https://democraticgovernors.org/news/rauner-asked-if-he-was-getting-ives-endorsement-93-days-after-primary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yesterday, Governor Bruce Rauner appeared on WJBC and was asked, “How important would an endorsement from Jeanne Ives be for you?” That’s right. It’s been more than three months since the primary, and just when candidates want to turn their attention to the general election, Rauner is still dealing with his fractured party. On WJBC, Rauner once again claimed he’s “reached out” to Ives, something he’s said before that was found not to be true. Who else is Rauner calling to reunite the party? None other than Rauner’s previous headache and Roy Moore’s biggest backer, Dick Uihlein. “It seems that time doesn’t heal all wounds as Bruce Rauner has failed to put his party back together after three months,” said DGA Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro. “It’s clear Jeanne Ives and her supporters have not forgiven Rauner for his lies and failures.”)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/roskam-navigates-immigration-uproar-as-rival-casten-woos-hispanics-in-illinois-6/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., voted against a hard-line immigration bill on Thursday that failed on a 193-231 roll call, siding with Democrats as his Democratic rival, Sean Casten, is making a major appeal to Hispanic voters. Casten campaign manager Michael Garton told the Chicago Sun-Times that they project the Hispanic vote in the west suburban 6th Congressional District seat to be between five and eight percent, a big enough bloc to be a factor in the high- profile battle. Garton told me that the Casten campaign is “specifically targeting the Hispanic community,” and has been running immigration related ads on Facebook and websites. There were 193 Republicans who voted for HR4760, introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. ANALYSIS Roskam was one of 41 Republicans to vote no, along with 190 Democrats. There were no Democratic yes votes. Roskam most often votes with the GOP majority. The other six Illinois House Republicans – Randy Hultgren; Adam Kinzinger; John Shimkus; Rodney Davis and Michael Bost – voted for the Goodlatte legislation. . .Roskam heads into the summer election fight with immigration a Casten priority issue, with about 2,900 Dreamers in the district, according to Garton.)

My Democrat IRS superiors would say that they showed their love for African-Americans by not promoting me beyond GS-12, disallowing my education deductions in 1978, getting rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowing my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors would say that they showed their love for African-Americans by forcing me resign in 1969 and disallowing my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. 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.)

— ILLINOIS WORKERS HAVE TO MAKE $20 AN HOUR JUST TO AFFORD A DECENT RENTAL HOME (DIERSEN: In today’s dollars, I earned $26.88 an hour in 1972 when I bought a new town home in University Park. In addition to my IRS salary, I worked part-time for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970 and I was taking graduate business courses at Loyola.)
https://www.oneillinois.com/stories/2018/6/21/boxed-in
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new study finds that Illinois workers need to make more than $20 an hour just to afford a decent two-bedroom rental home. “Out of Reach 2018: The High Cost of Housing” was released this month as a national study localized by Housing Action Illinois. Working from a statewide average of $1,058 a month for rent and utilities for a two-bedroom apartment, the study projects that a resident spending the generally accepted 30 percent of income on housing would need to make a “housing wage” of $20.34 an hour to afford it. According to Sharon Legenza, executive director of Housing Action Illinois, it casts in relief how unaffordable it is to eke out a living at the minimum wage.)

Since 1997, when I was 49 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that because my federal superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer,” I must have been one of the worst of the worst employees in the federal government. They stress that before that, a) my GAO superiors gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $19,203 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980; b) my IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974; and c) my Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/06/22/government-can-more-easily-tell-fed-workers-re-fired-for-poor-performance-it-s-about-time.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the same time, I realized a few bad actors have given the federal workforce a bad reputation. Of course, “few” is a relative term. In a federal civilian workforce of 2.1 million, a “few” can equate to tens of thousands of nonproductive workers. And their impact is not only wasteful – it’s a real disservice to their hard-working colleagues. That’s why I produced a series of OPM reports that explored ways to attract high performers to the federal workforce. And it’s why I think President Trump’s recent action is so important. On May 25, the President issued three executive orders that will do much to protect outstanding federal workers from the comparatively few “bad apples” in their midst. One order holds nonproductive workers more accountable for unsatisfactory performance and speeds up the disciplinary process. This fixes what has become a seemingly never-ending appeals process that has made it extremely difficult to remove those who are guilty of poor performance or misconduct.)

It is called “GOPUSA ILLINOIS Email Readers.” However, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that I am no longer a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member, GAO employee, etc. They stress the conservative leaders in Illinois who have never come to my defense.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/48-conservative-groups-demand-media-tech-companies-disavow-southern-poverty
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 48 conservative organizations joined forces Wednesday to call on governments, corporations, and media to cut ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), in light of the group’s recent surrender in a major defamation case. SPLC’s ostensible mission is to monitor hate groups, but is notorious for applying the “hate” label to mainstream Christian, pro-family, and conservative groups. Earlier this week, it admitted defeat in a defamation suit brought by the British-based Quilliam Foundation. SPLC issued a public apology for labeling the group “anti-Muslim extremists” and agreed to pay $3.4 million. The new letter, signed by representatives of the Family Research Council, the Ruth Institute, Liberty Counsel, Eagle Forum, and more — all of whom have been “maligned, defamed, and otherwise harmed” by SPLC’s “groundless epithets” — cites the settlement as the latest reason for disavowing SPLC.)

— Rebuking Trump, Senate panel okays federal pay raise, but House plans big hit on pensions – Joe Davidson (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have painted themselves the most strongly as being a) anti-federal employee and b) anti-federal retiree.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2018/06/21/rebuking-trump-senate-panel-okays-federal-pay-raise-as-house-plans-big-hit-on-pensions/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the House, Budget Committee Republicans proposed taking from federal workers by cutting $145 billion from their pensions over 10 years — that’s $1.5 billion more than Trump wanted. . .Greater contributions by individuals with no increase in benefits amounts to a cut in compensation. Creating parity with private-sector employers that have already whittled away or ended pensions is the opposite of progress. If parity is the goal, encourage the corporate world to offer better retirement. . .Womack adopted recommendations by a 2010 panel informally known as the Simpson-Bowles Commission. In addition to the points mentioned in the budget document, the commission also recommended reducing pensions by basing them on the highest five years of earning for new employees, instead of the highest three, which is now the case. The budget plan also calls on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to find $32 billion in savings, which likely would result in another hit on federal employees’ wallets. With recommendations like these, federal employee organizations are preparing for a fierce fight against the House GOP budget plan.)
— Why do we need more people in this country, anyway? – Michael Anton (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want cheap labor. They despise lowly workers like I was 1964-1997. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/why-do-we-need-more-people-in-this-country-anyway/2018/06/21/4ee8b620-7565-11e8-9780-b1dd6a09b549_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After at least two decades of wage stagnation and even decline, now that we’ve finally reached the nirvana of full employment (and who knows how long it will last), why not take advantage of this tight labor market to raise wages across the board? Especially for the working and middle classes that got nowhere or even lost ground during the housing, finance and tech booms of recent years? Just about everyone knows the answer: because the business community does not like tight labor markets and the concomitant necessity to raise wages. That’s bad for the bottom line. The solution? More workers! And so the Chamber of Commerce annex — a.k.a. Capitol Hill Republicans — dutifully attempt to do their donors’ bidding at the expense of their voters’ interests. . .It’s clear what the oligarchs get out of an endless influx of cheap labor. What the Democratic Party gets is also clear: more voters, and with them the tantalizing possibility of turning the country as irreversibly blue as Democratic policies have already done to New York, California and many other states.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-morning-spin-rauner-pritzker-plumbing-ad-20180620-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pritzker is responding to Rauner’s property-tax attack — and the out-of-touch criticism — with an ad of his own that references a 2013 Chicago Tribune story detailing the Republican governor’s ownership of nine homes. The properties include a 6,870-square-foot mansion on a half-acre lot in Winnetka; two units, including a penthouse, in a luxury high-rise overlooking Millennium Park; a waterfront villa in the Florida Keys with a 72-foot-long pool; ranches in Montana and Wyoming; a condo in an upscale Utah ski resort; and a penthouse overlooking Central Park in New York. “Bruce Rauner owns nine homes and he’s appealed his property taxes 22 times, but now he’s attacking someone else for the same thing? Now that’s bad,” a narrator says.)

— Companies need older workers: here is why – Mark Miller (DIERSEN: The federal government is the leading age discriminator in America. It wastes the careers of and gets rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who it does not promote 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.)
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-world-work-olderworkers/companies-need-older-workers-here-is-why-idUSKBN1JH15F
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Age discrimination, while difficult to prove, persists. Yet research over the past decade has gone a long way toward debunking stereotypes about older workers – that they are less productive and energetic, and less able to learn or solve problems. But the bias continues. Forty-one percent of companies around the world surveyed by Deloitte Consulting said they considered aging of their workforces a competitive disadvantage. The finding varied by country.)

— These places will pay U.S. workers thousands of dollars to move there – Danielle Paquette (DIERSEN: Those who are members of Group A make it clear to members of Group B that members of Group B are NOT WELCOME in the precincts, municipalities, townships/wards, counties, states, and counties where members of Group A live. Members of Group A are 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 and members of Group B are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older people, rich people, gun owners, German Americans, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. How many members of Group A live in your precinct? In the 2016 general election, 211 voted for Clinton while only 137 voted for Trump. In the 2016 primary election, 93 voted for Kasich while only 21 voted for Trump. However, in the 2018 primary election, 68 voted for Ives, while only 43 voted for Rauner.)

SEATTLE TIMES
— 8 big career mistakes that new college grads should avoid – Valencia Higuera (DIERSEN: After you earned your bachelor’s degree, did you take a job that did not require a bachelor’s degree? I did. In 1970, when I was 21 years old, after I earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU, I accepted the only job offer that I got – working for the Firestone Store in Chicago Heights. I was draft bait. Potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship would be granted. Further, employers were under tremendous pressure to hire minorities, females, and veterans. 7 months later, after my draft deferment application had been approved, my Firestone boss fired me when I told him that I had accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS. IRS offered me the job because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take it.)
https://www.seattletimes.com/business/8-big-career-mistakes-that-new-college-grads-should-avoid/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Accepting a bad job College grads shouldn’t expect their first jobs to be their dream jobs, but they also shouldn’t settle for bad jobs. “It’s important to get a job, but it’s also worth waiting if the only offers you have are for jobs outside your field or area of expertise,” said Jim Wang, founder of the money blog Wallet Hacks.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-bc-us–canada-marijuana-legalization-things-to-know-20180621-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s up to the provinces and territories to determine how to handle distribution, and they’re taking a variety of approaches. Ontario plans to open up to 150 stores run by its Liquor Control Board — a model of public ownership that is unusual in the U.S. The tiny Washington state town of North Bonneville has one city-owned pot shop. British Columbia is planning for a mix of public and privately owned stores, while Newfoundland and Saskatchewan will have only private pot shops. In some remote areas where stand-alone marijuana stores might not be economically feasible, including in the Northwest Territories, cannabis could be sold at existing liquor stores. Just like U.S. states with legal pot, the provinces also differ on home-growing, with many allowing up to four plants and others, including Quebec, barring it. And rather than a minimum age of 21, as U.S. states have set, Canada’s federal minimum age to use marijuana will be 18, with most provinces adding an additional year. The varying approaches make the provinces something of a laboratory for determining the best ways to legalize, said Matt Gray, founder and chief executive of Herb, a Toronto-based news and social media platform for the pot industry.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— First look at U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam’s opening TV ad of the general election race (DIERSEN: All those who my Democrat GAO superiors assigned me to supervise 1980-1997 were disabled, minority, female, veteran, and/or were employees who they wanted to get rid of.)
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2018/06/20/rauner-razzes-jb-the-plumber-black-caucus-calls-out-governor-on-african-american-claims-roskams-first-ad-uihlein-back-in-il-money-game-280735
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Its focus is on what Roskam voted against, a change to the American Disabilities Reform Act, which he says would have thrown up obstacles for individuals with disabilities seeking accommodations. “Our fellow citizens who are disabled bear a heavy burden in their mobility. The law should not make it more difficult on them,” Roskam said in a statement. He faces Democrat Sean Casten in November.)

How will the Republican candidates on the ballot in your precinct react to the aforesaid?

https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/06/19/university-of-washington-settles-lawsuit-agrees-to-pay-republican-group-122500
(FROM THE ARTICLE: UW College Republicans planned a rally on Feb. 1 with the group Patriot Prayer. The college determined that the rally was a security risk, and demanded that the club pay $17,000 in security fees. This made the event unaffordable for the College Republicans, who argued that this amounted to suppression of their right to free speech.)
— Trump demanded biased FBI agent be fired – he’s just been escorted from the FBI building – Carlos Garcia (DIERSEN: Starting in late August of 1997, when I was 48 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors started talking and acting like one or more Democrat politician had demanded that I be forced to take early retirement.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Elon Musk Accuses Tesla Employee of Sabotage – Neal E. Boudette (DIERSEN: The Democrats who run the federal government hint/imply/argue/shout that their efforts to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females are sabotaged by their employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they did not promote 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.)

— Matching Job Program To People Most in Need – Jeffery C. Mays (DIERSEN: Ya’seen Madyun, 22, wants “a job that pays anywhere near $50,000.” In 1971, when I was 22 years old, I took a job that paid only $45,703 in today’s dollars. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970 and I had worked for Firestone Stores as a Retail Sales Manager for 7 months.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/19/nyregion/nyc-jobs-de-blasio-poor.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since graduating two years ago from a small private high school in Queens, Ya’seen Madyun has completed a culinary training program and has attended security training courses, all in the hopes of landing a job that pays anywhere near $50,000. In January, Mr. Madyun, now 22, sought assistance at one of the city’s Workforce1 centers. He said he was directed toward an opening at a Family Dollar on New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn, a good 90-minute subway ride from his home in Far Rockaway, Queens. When he arrived, 15 people were already waiting to apply. “I’m used to a line,” Mr. Madyun said, adding that he never heard back about the job. He knows many young people in his neighborhood who are in a similar situation. “They want a full-time job,” he said, “anything 9 to 5.” It has been a year since Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a $1.5 billion New York Works program aimed at creating 100,000 jobs paying $50,000 or more over the next decade. The program is designed to tackle what the mayor calls an “affordability crisis” by creating jobs in fields such as technology and life sciences.)

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.

They stress that I avoided the draft and that we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents.)

My critics/opponents consider the federal government to be the employer of last resort, that is, a dumping ground for those who are lazy, stupid, minority, female, older, disabled, and/or veteran.)

The flyers will be printed courtesy of Alpha Graphics and I plan on delivering them on Thursday, June 21.

 

So far, Republican entries in the parade are Peter Roskam, Peter Breen/Amy Grant, Paul Hinds, James Mendrick, Grant Eckhoff/Tim Elloitt/Chris Zaruba, Jeff McKay, Karen Wilson, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee. Please help me encourage Republican candidates on November 6 ballots in Wheaton to have an entry in Wheaton’s Independence Day parade.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-morning-spin-state-house-federal-prosecutor-20180618-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But the three testimonials that are featured are an indication of Rauner’s continued effort to try to unify a Republican base focused on Downstate Illinois. Featured are video testimonials from Beth Montfort of Saline County, a city commissioner in Harrisburg; Scott Preston of Normal, a town council member; and Wendy Erhart of Madison County, a businesswoman in Maryville. “He understood Southern Illinois values were a lot different,” Montfort says in her testimonial.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— DETHRONING PRITZKER – Natasha Korecki (DIERSEN: Have you appealed your property taxes? I did during the 1980s and 1990s. I won a reduction from the Property Tax Appeal Board. I should write a book about it and about how I have been punished for it ever since.)
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2018/06/19/immigration-debate-roils-gop-pritzker-places-1m-behind-separation-ads-jbs-toilets-vs-rauners-9-homes-280517
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Finally! We have a campaign ad out of Team Rauner that focuses on something other than imprisoned ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Instead, it zooms in on Pritzker’s Cook County property tax appeal that involved pulling toilets from a mansion abutting his own Chicago mansion. This was from a 2017 Tim Novak special that reported Pritzker disconnected toilets from an Astor street property abutting his Chicago home to classify it as “vacant and uninhabitable.” Pritzker ended up with a $230,000 property tax break. Watch “Porcelain Prince” Pritzker quickly retaliated in his own new TV ad taking a shot at Rauner’s wealth, his nine homes and past property tax appeals. But what’s likely to be even more controversial is the ad’s assertion that Rauner wanted to raise local property taxes. “Bruce Rauner owns nine homes and he’s appealed his property taxes 22 times. But now he’s attacking somebody else for the same thing? Now that’s bad. But you know what’s worse? Bruce Rauner wants to raise your property taxes. That’s right, Rauner’s budget cost taxpayers more than $1 billion.”)

ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION
— Gubernatorial Election: What to Do, What to Do… – Laurie Higgins (DIERSEN: To vote for Pritzker is to vote for pot and to vote for even worse things.)
https://illinoisfamilyaction.org/2018/06/gubernatorial-election-what-to-do-what-to-do-_-docx/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Maybe Illinois conservatives, beaten down by Illinois politics and bad governance, badgered by fellow Republicans, and panicking because they focus too much on the short-term nightmarish picture they see before their eyes, will at the last moment fold and vote for Bruce Rauner. That would be a huge mistake. The long-term health of the party, the state, and the nation depends not solely or even centrally on tax rates for businesses but on issues related to respect for human life, marriage, and sexuality. The fact that so many Republicans don’t see that bodes ill for Illinois and America. Having Pinocchio Rauner at the helm of the Republican Party will exacerbate the ignorance on these issues, and the GOP will continue to rot from within. We don’t need any more evidence of Rauner’s unfitness for office, but here goes. On Father’s Day, Rauner chose to demonstrate his contempt—again—for conservative voters by marching in the shameful homosexual “pride” parade in Aurora, Illinois. On the day that commemorates fathers, he marched in a parade that celebrates the intrinsically sterile unions of people who are acquiring children like commodities and intentionally depriving children of fathers (and mothers).)

— Madigan taps Rauner’s former watchdog Maggie Hickey to probe House for ‘failures and mistakes’ – Tina Sfondeles (DIERSEN: In Diersen v. GAO, while Hickey served as Peter Fitzgerald’s Chief of Staff, Fitzgerald appointed both the district court judge, Amy J. St. Eve, and the attorney who represented GAO, Patrick Fitzgerald. All of the aforesaid made it very clear that they favored patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. Eve granted Patrick Fitzgerald’s motion to deny me my 7th Amendment rights, that is, to deny me a jury trial. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes used that to hint/imply/argue/shout that Peter Fitzgerald, Hickey, Eve, and Patrick Fitzgerald viewed me as being someone who was lazy, stupid, bad, and even worse things.)
https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/madigan-taps-rauners-former-watchdog-to-probe-house-for-failure-and-mistakes/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said Hickey will be paid $500 an hour to conduct the investigation. Brown said the funds will come from the Illinois House operations budget. Brown initially told the Sun-Times there was a cap of $50,000 but later said “the final version of the contract does not have a cap.” . . . When Hickey left Rauner’s administration, the governor said in a statement that “her objectivity and fairness can be a model for public servants.” Hickey helped to lead a health care fraud elimination task force and also led an investigation into the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services that uncovered multiple flaws. Hickey left the administration to join the Schiff Hardin LLP law firm as a partner. Hickey also served as an investigative counsel for a U.S. Senate committee and as the chief of staff for former Sen. Peter Fitzgerald, R-Ill. But as a Rauner political appointee, she was blocked by Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth, as well as Mayor Rahm Emanuel last year to replace former U.S. Attorney Zach Fardon in the Northern District of Illinois.)

http://www.breitbart.com/2018-elections/2018/06/17/gop-pr-ryan-amnesty-not-amnesty-you-are-looking-for/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The message tries to downplay the demand by GOP donors for more cheap labor, yet it describes immigration as a tool for business groups and also reveals that Ryan plans to expand the H-2B visa-worker program. Some of the phrases chosen by McMorris Rodgers are even plagiarized from pro-amnesty speeches by President Barack Obama, who also supported cheap-labor immigration.)

http://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2018/06/18/schumer-ryan-amnesty-bill-doomed-fail/

That high number means a bill has to be backed by roughly 15 Democratic Senators plus nearly all of the GOP’s cheap-labor caucus, which includes at least 20 Senators out of the 51 GOP members in the Senate. In February, for example, Sen. Susan Collins and eight other GOP Senators pushed a surprise bill that would have provided a priority-amnesty for all 8 million illegal immigrants who are holding jobs.)
