— Ousted Madigan Chief of Staff Finds New Job in Springfield Mapes was let go in June after allegations of harassment and bullying – Mary Ann Ahern (DIERSEN: Have you have been “ousted?” If so, have you found a “new job?” My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that my Democrat GAO superiors ousted me in 1997 when I was 49 years old and that I have yet to find a PAID job that is appropriate for someone with my work experience, education, professional certifications, and professional license. Ahern says that “political observers note Mapes will now be allowed to use those same connections and resources that he acquired after years of experience to help get things done in Springfield for his clients.” Every day, to put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and send them out, I use what I learned working for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $96,403-$125,323.)

DAILY HERALD
— California GOP ponders way forward after stunning losses – AP (DIERSEN: What is the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) pondering? Has your representative on the IRP State Central Committee sought your input? What is on the agenda for the December 1, 2018 IRP SCC meeting? Where, and at what time, will the meeting be held? Will public comments be allowed? What will be discussed in the open part of the meeting and what will be discussed in executive session part of the meeting?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20181116/news/311169983/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The California Republican Party isn’t salvageable at this time,” concluded Kristin Olsen, a former Republican leader in the state Assembly. “The Grand Old Party is dead – partly because it has failed to separate itself from today’s toxic, national brand of Republican politics,” she wrote in a column on the website CALmatters. Shawn Steel, one of the state’s two Republican National Committee members, said her party has “reached the point of desperation.” “The party’s problems have been around longer and run much deeper than any one person. From money to grassroots organization, California Republicans are completely outmatched,” Steel wrote on the Washington Examiner website. A generation ago, the state was once a reliable win for the GOP in presidential elections. And in Orange County, largely white, conservative homeowners delivered winning margins for Republicans year after year. But a surge in immigrants transformed the state and its voting patterns. The number of Hispanics, blacks and Asians has outnumbered whites since 1998. And many of those new voters lean Democratic. The number of registered Republicans has been in a freefall for years – even independents outnumber them. In a sign of what was to come, Hillary Clinton carried Orange County in the 2016 presidential election, the first Democrat to do so since the Depression era. A stronger tack leftward has now dramatically arrived. . .Clearly, President Donald Trump was a factor. He lost California by over 4 million votes in 2016 and has remained unpopular, and many voters saw an opportunity to send a message to Washington. Walters and Rohrabacher, for example, were closely tied to the president, while Democratic candidates campaigned openly against Trump’s agenda. But demographic changes have also helped Democrats, and in key congressional races they fielded a group of fresh faces, not career politicians. Steel, the GOP committeeman, noted that Democrats raised more money and did a better job registering voters and using social media. The state GOP has debated for years whether the party needs to turn to the political center, or right. As far back as 2007, Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger warned the party was “dying at the box office” and needed to claim issues usually associated with the Democratic agenda, including climate change and health care reform. The latest setbacks have set off a fresh round of Republican soul-searching. Travis Allen, a former GOP candidate for governor and ardent Trump supporter, said Thursday he was entering the race to be the state party leader. The party, he said, is at the “lowest point it’s been since the 1880s.”)

NEW REPUBLIC
— The Republicans Broke Congress. Democrats Can Fix It. A roadmap for House Democrats between now and the 2020 election – NORMAN J. ORNSTEIN (DIERSEN: If Gingrich had not gutted GAO in 1990s, I might still be a GAO employee. Gingrich had to know that the Democrats who ran GAO in the 1990s would use his tremendous budget cuts to get rid of GAO’s employees like me who were Republican, and especially those like me who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. My critics/opponents hint/imply/argue/shout a) that Gingrich knew full-well that because of his tremendous budget cuts, GAO forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old and b) that Gingrich had no problem with that. They stress that Gingrich, Hastert, Republican U.S. Senators from Illinois, and Republican U.S. Representatives from Illinois have not come to my defense.)
https://newrepublic.com/article/152127/republicans-broke-congress-democrats-can-fix-it

(FROM THE ARTICLE: For many decades, Congress has provided orientations for its new members. These used to be bipartisan, including a wide range of experts who taught newcomers the rules of how Congress works. After Newt Gingrich’s speakership in the 1990s, they became more partisan and generally less effective. The Democrats will need a much more robust orientation for members, new and otherwise, who have never served in the majority—and the same for staff. There should also be training about how to conduct investigations—there’s going to be a lot to investigate—how to do oversight, how to ask questions of witnesses, and how to use the alphabet soup of resources available to Congress, from CBO to GAO to CRS.)

— Blakeman says GOP needs new leaders to counter Dems – Glenn Minnis
https://westcentralreporter.com/stories/511631380-blakeman-says-gop-needs-new-leaders-to-counter-dems
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Plain and simple, we are a welfare state,” he told West Central Reporter. “As long as one party (Democrats) keeps giving away free stuff, they will stay in power.” Blakeman argues the current situation leaves the state in a perilous position. “Eventually the state coffers will run dry and the programs will stop;” he added. “At that point, all voters will turn on the Democratic Party. Until then, enjoy high taxes and corrupt government.” Finally, Blakeman insists Republicans are in need of new leadership across the state to balance the scales. “The current leadership does not know how to campaign against the Democrats,” he said. The Chicago Tribune reports that Democrats recorded a statewide sweep on Election Night along with picking up at least two congressional seats. In addition, first-term Gov. Bruce Rauner, a Republican, was ousted by J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat, as overall the GOP suffered the party’s most lopsided defeat in more than a decade.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But apparently it’s true, with Politico reporter Rachael Bade tweeting that there is to be no “chick-fil-a/ideological food” when the House Democrats serve a “thanksgiving-type meal” for their first caucus meeting in room where the majority typically meets. “This is a sickness!” wrote a contributor to the Twitter news-aggregating site Twitchy. “Liberals have been crapping on Thanksgiving for a while now, but you’d be hard-pressed to find something more woke that this.” The Chik-fil-A fast food chain became a target of the culture war in 2012 when CEO Dan Cathy declared support for traditional marriage. The company closes on Sundays so employees can attend church.)

Would they paint me as being a clone of Jeff Gannon? SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talon_News)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-cnn-jim-acosta-white-house-ban-20181115-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Wednesday, Justice Department lawyer James Burnham argued that Acosta was guilty of “inappropriate grandstanding” and deserved to lose his access over “his refusal to comply with the general standards of a press conference.” Burnham also pointed out that CNN has dozens of other staffers with White House credentials, so excluding Acosta would not harm the network’s coverage. The network’s lawyer, Theodore Boutrous, contended that Acosta was being singled out for his body of work, not his alleged rudeness during a press conference. “The White House has made very clear that they don’t like the content of the reporting by CNN and Jim Acosta,” Boutrous said. “Rudeness really is a code word for ‘I don’t like you being an aggressive reporter.'” Prior to Wednesday’s hearing, the White House had maintained that it has “broad discretion” to regulate press access to the White House. A pre-hearing legal filing argued, “The President and his designees in the White House Press Office have exercised their discretion not to engage with him and, by extension, to no longer grant him on-demand access to the White House complex so that he can attempt to interact with the President or White House officials.” Trump himself, in an interview published Wednesday, was uncertain how the court fight would end, saying: “We’ll see how the court rules. Is it freedom of the press when somebody comes in and starts screaming questions and won’t sit down?” Trump told The Daily Caller that “guys like Acosta” were “bad for the country. … He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.” The White House’s explanations for why it seized Acosta’s credentials have shifted over the last week. Sanders initially explained the decision by accusing Acosta of making improper physical contact with the intern seeking to grab the microphone. But that rationale disappeared after witnesses backed Acosta’s account that he was just trying to keep the mic, and Sanders distributed a doctored video that made it appear Acosta was more aggressive than he actually was. On Tuesday, Sanders accused Acosta of being unprofessional by trying to dominate the questioning at the news conference. Both Sanders and Trump are named as defendants in the CNN suit, along with Chief of Staff John Kelly and Randolph Alles, director of the Secret Service.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A report from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce showed white students are disproportionately represented at selective public colleges, comprising 64 percent of freshman enrollment, even though they represent only about half of the college-age population. And in Illinois, report co-author Martin Van Der Werf explained, black students are severely under-represented at these schools. “Eighteen out of every 100 Illinois college-age young adults are black, but only about nine out of every 100 Illinois selective public college freshmen are black,” Van Der Werf said. “So their representation is only about half of their distribution of the population.” Latinos fare a bit better, accounting for 18 out of 100 freshman at Illinois selective public colleges, compared to 20 out of every 100 Illinois college-age young adults generally. Illinois State University, the University of Illinois Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are considered selective public colleges.)

ROLL CALL
— Rep. Adam Kinzinger ‘Disgusted’ By Trump Mocking Unseated Republicans ‘Some of them lost because people, frankly, were voting against the president,’ GOP congressman says – Emily Kopp (DIERSEN: Democrats won on November 6, 2018 because of  Democrat success in a) promoting hatred against Trump and b) getting voters to punish Trump by voting for Democrats.)
https://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/rep-adam-kinzinger-disgusted-by-trump-mocking-unseated-republicans
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As President Donald Trump the day after Election Day read off a list of defeated Republicans whose losses he attributed to not embracing his endorsement on the campaign trail, Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger watched in disgust. “I wish the president had shown some more grace in that and said ‘Thank you for your service,’ instead of ‘It’s because you didn’t back me,’” the 16th District congressman said in an interview with CNN Tuesday. “I was very disgusted when I heard that.” Last week Trump identified Carlos Curbelo, Mike Coffman, Peter Roskam, Erik Paulsen, Bob Hugin, John Faso and Mia Love as candidates who “didn’t want the embrace.” Kinzinger made a different case: That some of those candidates suffered losses in a wave of backlash to the White House. “Some of them lost because people, frankly, were voting against the president,” he said. Kinzinger’s critique follows similar comments by retiring Republican Rep. Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania, who likened the president’s chiding words to “dancing on somebody’s grave.” Costello declined to run for reelection this cycle, facing tough political realities in his district. Costello also placed the blame for the party’s losses squarely on the president’s shoulders. He said even candidates who eschewed Trump on the campaign trail should be credited with advancing the White House’s policy agenda. “The president should be thanking them for putting up the tough votes,” he said last week.)

 

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps promote Michelle Obama’s book.
https://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/books/ct-books-becoming-michelle-obama-1113-story.html
(FROM THE PROMOTION: Michelle Obama manages to be inspirational, direct and naive about race and gender politics. She wonders after the 2016 election “about what led so many women, in particular, to reject an exceptionally qualified female candidate and instead choose a misogynist as their president.” The misclassification is glaring: More than 90 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, but more than half of white women voted for Trump. But now, her life in politics is over. No, Michelle Obama will not run for office. The attendant “nastiness” and “tribal segregation” of the political climate soured her to the prospect. Obama names her husband’s successor fewer than a dozen times over 426 pages, but her loathing is clear. His lies about President Obama’s birthplace were “deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks,” she writes. “What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? … Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this, I’d never forgive him.” Again, she saw what was coming. In November 2011, a man who had said Obama “needed to be shot” fired a semi-automatic rifle at the White House. Bullets hit a window, a window frame and the roof. “Becoming” was finished before a white nationalist killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue in October — and before a registered Republican and fan of Hitler allegedly sent pipe bombs to CNN, 12 high-profile Democrats and Trump critics this fall. Yet one can sense Obama’s disappointment, as the pendulum of progressiveness and inclusivity swung to a nation pocked with white nationalists, neo-Nazis, alt-righters who welcomed a bullier-in-chief into the White House.)
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG COLOR PICTURE: DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps promote Michelle Obama’s book.
https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-michelle-obama-visit-20181112-story.html
(FROM THE PROMOTION: As she often does, Obama leaned on her personal narrative to encourage the teenagers to find their voices and use them. Rather than condemn systemic inequality, structural racism and gender bias, Obama told the students they could win allies by first acknowledging to themselves that their unique experiences are their strengths. “It’s important for you guys, that when you are at the table, you bring your full voice,” she told them. Obama subtly commented on issues she’s rarely talked about publicly before. “You think there are certain voices that are more important than others,” she said. “And they look a certain way, they have a certain title.

— ‘I’m not the Resistance, I’m a reporter’: An Interview with April Ryan – Claudia Dreifus (DIERSEN: Diersen says “I am not an operative or a dupe for anyone, I am a reporter.” While Ryan promotes the Democrat Party platform, I promote the Republican Party platform.)
https://www.nybooks.com/daily/2018/11/12/im-not-the-resistance-im-a-reporter-an-interview-with-april-ryan/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At the top of Donald Trump’s journalistic enemies list is April Ryan, the fifty-one-year-old American Urban Radio Networks correspondent. Ryan—who has covered the presidency for more than two decades—is also an on-air political analyst for CNN and the author of three books, including the recently released Under Fire: Reporting from the Front Lines of the Trump White House. Around Washington, D.C., Ryan holds the title “Dean of the White House Press Corps.” “I watched her get up,” the president fumed last week before departing for Paris. “I mean, you talk about somebody that’s a loser. She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing… She’s very nasty, and she shouldn’t be… You’ve got to treat the White House and the Office of the Presidency with respect.” What Trump may find disrespectful is that Ryan has a penchant for asking tough questions on topics he’d doesn’t want to hear about: voter suppression, civil rights, Russia. Ryan is also black, female, middle-aged, and resolute. In January 2018, she asked, “Mr. President, are youa racist?” This boldness has made Ryan the target of Trump’s more ardent followers. She receives frequent death threats. On a reporter’s salary, she’s had to hire a full-time bodyguard. There are reports that Cesar Sayoc Jr., who is accused of sending pipe bombs to Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Barack Obama, and others, also had Ryan on his mailing list. We spoke for two hours in New York City in the early fall, and then again, twice after the November 6 election, by telephone. An edited and condensed version of the conversations follows.)

Will the IRP dump Uihlein and his money and seek/take money from those who promote LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the Second Amendment, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and even worse things?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Democrats’ takeover of every level of government has the Illinois Republican Party is taking stock on how to shift gears. The way Pat Brady sees it, the Illinois GOP needs an “autopsy” similar to what the national GOP underwent in 2012 when Mitt Romney lost to President Barack Obama. “We need to get back to the party of Reagan, a party that appeals to a broad spectrum,” he told POLITICO. That would mean having to pull back from the politics of Dick Uihlein, the business magnate who supported conservatives across the country during this past election season, including Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore—who was accused of sexually assaulting teens when he was in his 30s. Uihlein lives in Wisconsin but has been an influence on GOP politics in Illinois, funneling $8.5 million to the Liberty Principles PAC and to conservative gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives (who lost to Bruce Rauner in the primary). Brady and others say the Illinois GOP would do better to stop focusing on social issues like gay marriage, especially as more young people and women get involved in the voting process. GOP state Rep. Dave McSweeney also points to the missteps of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. “ We have a massive tax hike, out of control spending, a big unpaid backlog of bills—and we have fewer Republican General Assembly members,” he told POLITICO. “We’re worse off than when he came in.” McSweeney says Republicans need to follow Democrats’ political tactics: Run a grassroots GOTV campaign. “This wasn’t a policy victory,” he said, referring to J.B. Pritzker’s rout over Rauner. “Pritzker ran on a vague platform. What he and Democrats did was get out the vote.”)

https://www.aol.com/article/finance/2018/11/12/how-trumps-tax-cuts-hurt-the-gop-in-americas-wealthy-suburbs/23587443/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Proponents of the tax bill say the SALT cap, which tends to benefit the wealthier, will still be offset by a now-doubled standard deduction. Republican Peter Roskam, one of the key members of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, heavily advertised how a larger standard deduction would simplify the tax filing to the size of a postcard. Roskam ended up losing his seat in Illinois’s 6th congressional district, where Democratic challenger Sean Casten took to Medium.com to attack Roskam and the Trump tax cuts. “Peter Roskam likes to hype his position on the Ways and Means committee to convince you he knows more about tax policy and you do,” Casten wrote. “It’s all a lie.” With Roskam gone, the Republican side of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee looks thin on members who helped drive the tax reform bill. Three of the six subcommittee members did not run for reelection.)

They applaud the federal government’s “out-or-out” policy for its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran. They vicious demonize, vicious denigrate, and viciously condemn as being lazy, stupid, and even worse things federal employees like me who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who did not make 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.)
http://www.rep-am.com/news/news-business/2018/11/11/legal-business-parameters-of-age-discrimination/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: My friends and I turned 50 this year. There is a group of about 11 of us from college who get together once a year to relive our glory days and catch up on each other’s lives. Over the last couple of years, five out of the 11 have lost jobs. Losing a job when you’re in your late 40s to early 50s can be financially devastating. Those are the prime earning years and the time when a person can really start putting away for retirement and catch up if the nest egg wasn’t built large enough in their 20s and 30s. A layoff or termination after 25 years of building a career can really set a person back. The likelihood that such a person will find work at the same pay level becomes more remote. At the same time, greater financial obligations like educating kids, preparing for retirement, or caring for parents come to the forefront.)
