CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Edward E. McNally, Trump’s top candidate for N.Y. prosecutor angered U.S. lawyers in Chicago in George Ryan case – Christian Berthelsen, Matt Robinson (DIERSEN: To this day, my RINO critics/opponents, their RINO operatives, and their RINO dupes a) blame me for all of George Ryan’s problems and b) hint/imply/argue/shout that were it not for me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, George Ryan would still be the Governor of Illinois.)

— College endowments hope for rebound after worst year since financial crisis – Becky Yerak
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-illinois-college-endowments-down-0430-biz-20170428-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton College this year plans to spend about $17.9 million of its endowment, a 4.6 percent spending rate, up from $17.2 million last year. Endowment spending covers 14 percent of the Christian liberal arts school’s annual budget and helps pay for scholarships, faculty positions — including research — as well as academic programs, facility maintenance and general operations. Financial aid and scholarships represent the biggest piece of Wheaton’s endowment spending, about 38 percent. That amount, $6.8 million, has been growing in both dollars and percentage of endowment spending. The latest round will provide scholarships for about 800 students out of a total student body of 2,650 students. But like Northwestern, Wheaton saw its endowment shrink last year, dropping 5.3 percent, to $388 million. Nevertheless, Wheaton still boosted its financial aid from all sources, including the endowment, by 3.7 percent in 2017 and plans to spend even more next year, investment manager Kenneth Larson said.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH PHOTO OF TRUMP: DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “President learning on the job.”  When did you learn on the job?  I worked for IRS in 1971-1980. The first 6 months was all on-the-job training. I worked for GAO 1980-1997.  GAO provides its employees with lots of on-the-job training, and I took full advantage of that.

CHAMPAIGN/URBANA NEWS GAZETTE
— Powerful pols got in on illegal state hiring scheme – Jim Dey  (DIERSEN: In Diersen v. GAO, all of the following made it very clear that they favored patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation: the District Court Judge Amy J. St. Eve and the U.S. Attorney for GAO Patrick Fitzgerald, U.S. Senator Peter Fitzgerald who appointed the aforesaid, and the 7th Circuit Appellate Court Justices.)
http://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/columns/2017-04-30/jim-dey-powerful-pols-got-illegal-state-hiring-scheme.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Patronage hiring, like that on display in the IDOT episode, is illegal as a consequence of a 1990 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Rutan v. Republican Party of Illinois. As a consequence of that decision, the high court banned the practice with the exception of a handful of top policy positions in the upper reaches of the executive departments. Those appointed top management positions are called “Rutan-exempt” while lower-level jobs are labeled “Rutan-covered.” To get around the law, top Quinn officials created Rutan-exempt “staff assistant” positions who did “Rutan-covered” work and filled them with clouted job-seekers. Later, Quinn’s people would transfer the staff assistants into legitimate Rutan-covered positions after conducting phony jobs searches. In favoring those with clout, state officials squandered state dollars on unqualified individuals. IDOT also put others seeking state employment at an impossible disadvantage.)

— Can you actually become a millionaire on an average salary? – Christy Bieber
http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/28/pf/millionaire-average-salary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Becoming a millionaire has long been part of the American dream, but saving $1 million is not just an idle fantasy for most Americans. Saving at least $1 million is a dream many feel must come true if they’re going to have a comfortable retirement. In fact, of the Americans who have attempted to figure out how much they must save for retirement, 37% believe they need at least $1 million, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Saving enough for retirement is a significant source of stress, and it’s natural to worry about reaching a savings goal of $1 million. Banking this much money may seem impossible on an average person’s salary, but could it actually be realistic? Can the average person, without a big inheritance or a lucky lotto win, become a millionaire? Can you actually become a millionaire on an average salary? There are a lot of factors that determine whether you can save $1 million or not, including how much you can invest and how fast those investments grow. The biggest factor, however, is your age when you start saving.)

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2017/04/27/toxic-workplaces-technology-women-minorities-retention/100977038/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Toxic workplaces — where harassment, stereotyping and bullying occur — are driving away women and people of color, undercutting technology companies’ efforts to increase diversity and costing an estimated $16 billion a year. That’s the conclusion of a first-of-its-kind study from the Kapor Center for Social Impact and Harris Poll that explored the reasons people leave tech companies.)

http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170429/ISSUE01/170429842/how-regulators-nixed-inland-banks-risky-growth-play
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Regulators’ alarm at a rapid-fire, unorthodox loan-growth campaign at Inland Bank & Trust killed its most recent stab at a bank buyout, the lender now confirms. Oak Brook-based Inland, the $1 billion – asset bank owned by ultra-wealthy real estate mogul Dan Goodwin, wanted to bulk up fast in 2013 in order to go public so that Goodwin and other investors could cash out at least some of their shares. Without the personnel to generate enough loans to do that, the bank bought minority participations in business loans all over the country originated by outside banks. The result was immediate and eye-popping. Inland’s commercial and industrial loans grew 187 percent in a single year – 2014 – to $293 million from $102 million. Wanting to fund more such growth, Inland struck a deal in late 2014 to buy a Princeton, N.J.-based bank specializing in holding family savings for future college students while investing strictly in securities and making no loans. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. quickly approved the buyout in December 2014 but then took ​ the highly unusual step of reversing itself and killing it five months later.)

HOT AIR
—  Ruth Marcus: At a certain point, hasn’t Obama made enough money? – ED MORRISSEY  (DIERSEN: In 1997, when my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire when I was 49 years old, they had obviously decided that I had “made enough money” and that a $50,856/year Civil Service Retirement System pension and a $17,288/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy for life in today’s dollars was more than “enough money” for me.)
http://hotair.com/archives/2017/04/29/marcus-certain-point-hasnt-obama-made-enough-money/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In collecting $400,000 from a Wall Street investment firm to make a single speech, Barack Obama is following in the Gucci-clad footsteps of past presidents. Ronald Reagan landed a $2 million speaking gig in Japan. George W. Bush, on his way out, announced it was time to “replenish the ol’ coffers.” Bill and Hillary Clinton reported making more than $235 million after leaving the White House. But to acknowledge that Obama has plenty of precedent on his side is not to say that his choice is wise. Indeed, it’s unfortunate. …  The Wall Street angle feels like unfortunate icing on an already distasteful cake. Would we really feel better if Obama were taking the money from, say, a public university? At least the Cantor Fitzgerald check comes from folks who can easily afford it — not out of taxpayer dollars.)

I started working for IRS in 1971.  I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to retire in 1997.  My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government and just about everyone else were furious that when I started working for IRS, a) all my unused sick leave that I had earned working for the Post Office was re-credited and b) the almost 3 years that I had worked for the Post Office part-time was credited as though I had worked full-time; that meant that soon after I started working for IRS, I began earning vacation days at the rate of 20 days a year.  Further, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government and just about everyone else were even more furious that when I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980, a) all my unused sick leave and all my unused annual leave that I had earned working for the Post Office and for IRS was transferred and b) I began earning vacation days at the rate of 26 days a year in 1983. Because the federal service credit that I had earned working for the Post Office and for IRS came with me when I transferred to GAO, I became eligible to take GAO’s $25,000 early retirement buyout offer in 1993 when I was 45 years old.  The aforesaid made my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government and just about everyone else even more furious.)
https://www.fedsmith.com/2017/04/29/happens-benefits-leave-federal-service-return-future/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Any sick leave that you had at the time of your resignation would be re-credited. You would begin earning annual leave based on your length of service, including the service that took place before your resignation.)

— TRUMP: ‘I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE EASIER’ – CNN  (DIERSEN: If you are a Republican working for the federal government, it is not easy.  Democrats run the federal government.  Were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and e) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986.  If you are a Republican who is involved in Republican politics to defend and advance the Republican Party platform like I am, it is not easy.  Far too many “Republican” activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. are really Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, and RINOs who are hell-bent on destroying the Republican Party in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Glen Ellyn, in Wheaton, in etc.  Most commonly, these anti-Republicans reject the party’s traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks.  Most commonly, they promote LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, pot, booze, gambling, and other vices, weakening of the Second Amendment, and race and gender based preference giving.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Newly minted Cook County judge who refused traffic court duty quits bench – Steve Schmadeke  (DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS.  The Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office in 1980 did not want me to transfer from IRS to GAO. They thought that their forcing me to take an $18,847 (21%) pay cut to transfer from IRS to GAO would keep me at IRS, but they were wrong. They knew that I wanted to be assigned to audits of IRS so that I could use my knowledge of IRS that I had gained by working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $79,563-$90,173. So to get me to go back to IRS, they succeeded in keeping me off IRS audits until the end of 1985 when the GAO manager who had hired me finally succeeded in a) getting me assigned to audits of IRS and b) promoting me to GS-13, currently $94,610. But then, in 1987, the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office succeeded in forcing him to retire. At the end of 1988,  they threw me off audits of IRS and during 1989, they did everything that they could to get rid of me.  Were it not for Henry Hyde’s intervention, they might very well have succeeded.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-judge-cooke-resigns-traffic-court-met-20170428-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new Cook County judge who for months defied orders from his supervisors to work in traffic court has resigned, according to an Illinois Supreme Court spokesman.  Richard Cooke stepped down from his $194,000-a-year post two days after a committee of 17 Cook County presiding judges voted to refer his “non-compliance with reporting to a judicial assignment” to the state agency that investigates allegations of judicial misconduct. The resignation was “effective at the end of business on Tuesday,” Chris Bonjean, a state Supreme Court spokesman, wrote in an email to the Tribune on Friday. The committee acted about a week after the Tribune began asking questions about the judge. On the same day it referred Cooke, the body also assigned Judge Jessica O’Brien, a small-claims court judge who was recently indicted on federal mortgage fraud charges, to administrative duties. His resignation means the Judicial Inquiry Board no longer has any authority over Cooke, 50, who ran unopposed in a Northwest Side subcircuit after lending his campaign an unprecedented $660,000. If the inquiry board had filed charges, Cooke could have been sanctioned or even removed from the bench.)

Coleman  (DIERSEN: If you sought a government office or a political office, what decades-old things would your critics/opponents bring up?  My critics/opponents side with my Democrat superiors in the federal government. They would bring up a) that my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, 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 $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980; b) that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims; and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: In Mexico, ‘It’s Easy to Kill a Journalist’ – AZAM AHMED  (DIERSEN: Are you a journalist? I am; I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000.  If you are a journalist, how do those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois treat you? I should write a book about those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois, their operatives, and their dupes and how they have tried to kill me figuratively if not literally.  The aforesaid a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, and/or d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed and/or they are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/29/world/americas/veracruz-mexico-reporters-killed.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The reasons for such killings are often varied: cartel assassins annoyed at aggressive coverage, corrupt public officials targeting critics to silence them, random violence and even reporters crossing over into the criminal worlds they cover. But according to government data, public servants like mayors and police officers have threatened journalists more often than drug cartels, petty criminals or anyone else in recent years, imperiling investigations and raising questions about the government’s commitment to exposing the culprits. Cases include journalists tortured or killed at the behest of mayors, reporters beaten by armed men in their newsrooms on the order of local officials, and police officers threatening to kill journalists for covering the news. But of the more than 800 serious cases of harassment, assault or homicide committed against journalists in the past six years, the federal office created to prosecute crimes against the freedom of expression has convicted suspects in only two.)
— As College Deadlines Near, Families Wonder What They Can Pay – RON LIEBER  (DIERSEN: Did you expect your parents to pay for your bachelor’s degree?  I did not. Neither of my outstanding parents attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school; she was a housewife and homemaker.  My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, never earned more than $40,000 a year in today’s dollars, did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy, and died suddenly in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. I paid for my bachelor’s degree and for new cars with money that I earned washing dishes, cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assemble line, and working as a security guard.  My outstanding parents provided me with room and board during my first 2 years at UIC 1966-1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. I graduated from NIU in August of 1970.)

http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/04/intolerant-illinois-gov-rauner-encourages-prejudice-limits-to-free-speech.html
(FROM THE ARTICE: Governor Rauner today released an open letter to school districts and higher learning institutions encouraging them to proactively prevent “acts of hate” as defined by the un-elected individuals who make up the left-wing, taxpayer-funded Department of Human Rights (IDHR). “Acts of bigotry and hate have no place in our society. All of us need to come together and take the necessary measures to ensure that our schools, colleges, and universities are safe and welcoming environments for students,” said Rauner. “Our administration stands strongly with educational institutions across Illinois as they expand opportunities to prevent these acts.” In addition to suggested preventative measures for educational institutions, the Rauner Administration is pledging that IDHR, in partnership with the State Board of Education, the Illinois Community College Board, and the State Board of Higher Education, will investigate any and all reports of discriminatory acts occurring in academic settings. Administration officials recommend that institutions establish and implement policies that address those actions, ideas and speech they consider hateful, and to promote equal opportunity. “Through an ongoing collaboration, we intend to continue engagement with educational leaders and stakeholders on how to promote welcoming (read: trigger warnings) and supportive learning spaces (read: safe spaces) throughout the state,” said Secretary of Education Beth Purvis.)

HEALTH DAY
— College Now the Place to Try Pot  Undergrads experimenting in record numbers, same spike not seen among those who skip university life – Dennis Thompson  (DIERSEN: If you promote pot, you promote destruction.  I have never used an illegal drug, and I never will.  What has discouraged you from using pot?  For me, it included my outstanding parents who raised me in Crete and as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, my being a federal employee 1966-1969 and 1971-1997, and the fact that pot is destructive and illegal. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would agree that HAD I BEEN A STONER, I never would have been able to a) buy new cars when I was 17, 19, 20, 24, etc., b) graduate from high school when I was 17 and the in the upper 20% of my class, c) get a score of 24 on the ACT test, d) get accepted by UIC when I was 17, e) earn a bachelor’s degree from NIU when I was 21 and master’s degrees from Loyola when I was 27, from DePaul when I was 31, and from IIT when I was 48, f) buy a new town home when I was 24 and condos when I was 25 and 27, g) get married and buy a home with my wife in Wheaton when I was 29, h) pass the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30, i) pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt when I was 32, j) earn additional job-related professional certifications when I was 41, 45, 47, and 48, k) become a licensed CPA when I was 33, and l) have a new home built in Wheaton with my wife when I was 35.  QUESTION: Why do politicians promote pot? ANSWER: Stoners are far easier to manipulate/dominate.)

THE BLAZE
— OUTRAGEOUS, TRAGIC, UNACCEPTABLE: Leftist threat promises to ‘drag’ Republicans from city parade. Officials’ reaction is sad. – Dave Urbanski (DIERSEN: Anti-Republicans have always wanted Wheaton to ban Republicans from Wheaton’s Independence Day parades.  Of course, anti-Trumps want Wheaton to ban Republicans from Wheaton’s 2017 Independence Day parade. This year, will Republican candidates, Republican elected officials, and Republican organizations surrender to the anti-Trumps and a) NOT have entries in the parade and b) NOT contribute toward sponsoring entries in the parade?  I am going to raise $2,500 from Republicans to sponsor the Wheaton high school bands and the bagpipers in the parade even if all of the $2,500 has to come from me.)
http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/04/27/leftist-threat-promises-to-drag-republicans-from-city-parade-officials-reaction-is-sad/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Portland’s 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade this weekend was supposed to be a community-building event, showcasing local businesses and offering a positive spin on the area’s sometimes negative perception, the Oregonian reported. But there was a problem: The Multnomah County Republican Party was one of this year’s parade participants. At least it was a problem for an “antifa/anarchist” who sent an anonymous email to parade organizers Saturday, the Portland Mercury reported. According to the Mercury, the email sender threatened that if GOP members are allowed to participate in the parade, “we will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag and push those people out as we will not give one inch to groups who espouse hatred toward LGBT, immigrants, people of color or others. In case the message was not clear to you this is a sanctuary city and state, and we will not allow these people to spread their views in East Portland.” The email, the Oregonian added, also promised: “You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads, so please consider your decision wisely. … This is non-negotiable.” As you’re likely getting used to hearing these days, parade organizers canceled the event Tuesday, fearing it could end in “the type of riots which happen in downtown Portland,” the Oregonian added. Parade officials had contacted police about the situation, but Rich Jarvis, a spokesman for the Rose Festival Foundation, told the Oregonian that police couldn’t provide additional security. So it was bye-bye parade. “The showdown was imminent,” Jarvis told the Oregonian. “They were boxed into a corner, they simply had no choice. In order to avoid a violent outbreak, they had to cancel the parade.” Direct Action Alliance — a group “organized in response to the rise of fascism in America,” KGW-TV reported — was planning to speak out against fascism and white supremacy during the parade, the Oregonian said. But the group’s leader Jacob Bureros told KGW his group wasn’t responsible for the anonymous letter. “Direct Action Alliance and those affiliated with this group did not publish, produce or distribute the letter in question,” Bureros told the station in a statement. “We are members of this community, and like the Republican Party, our members have participated in past parades without incident. “We are disappointed that the parade was canceled,” he told the Oregonian, “… this is an awesome parade.” James Buchal, chairman of the Multnomah County Republican Party, told the Oregonian his group didn’t take part in the decision to cancel this Saturday’s parade — in fact, the news surprised him. He told KGW that the election of Republican President Donald Trump has caused a “significant portion of the population to become unhinged.” Buchal also had a message for those who believe GOP members are a bunch of racists and Nazis, the station reported. “I would say wake up, get in the real world,” he said. “We’re a political party. Are you really so stupid that you think we’re going to attract new members by marching with a bunch of Nazis carrying swastikas? What are you, nuts? Get in the real world.” Buchal told the Oregonian that he saw the anonymous, threatening email and that the GOP members still had no plans to back out. “We weren’t willing to just walk away quietly,” he said.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-samuelson-millennials-jobs-adulthood-perspec-0427-jm-20170426-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Growing up isn’t what it used to be. There’s a yawning gap between the end of adolescence and the beginning of adulthood: a period when millions of 20-somethings and 30-somethings have many adult freedoms without all the responsibilities. Social scientists have tried — so far in vain — to name this new life-stage, but no one should question its significance. If you have doubts, a new U.S. Census Bureau study should resolve them. It compares the experiences of Americans 18 to 34 now with the same age group in the 1970s. There has been a sea change. “In prior generations, young adults were expected to have finished school, found a job, and set up their own household during their 20s — most often with their spouse and with a child soon to follow,” says the report. No more. . .The transition has been hard on some men. In 1975, only about a quarter of men 25 to 34 had incomes less than $30,000 a year. By 2016, that had risen to 41 percent. (Incomes were adjusted for inflation.) Meanwhile, millions of young women have entered the labor force, and though their median wage remains below men’s, it has increased faster than men’s.)

 

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

FOX NEWS ILLINOIS
— Abortion Bill Passes in the Illinois House Tuesday – Em Nguyen
http://foxillinois.com/news/local/abortion-bill-passes-in-the-illinois-house-tuesday
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Who are we as a culture when we can’t even recognize the humanity of an unborn child?” and “How we can say we care about the most vulnerable among us when we have limited funds anyway?” Republican State Representative Terri Bryant said the policy is “ridiculous”. “It expands abortion in the state of Illinois.” Bryant said. “And shouldn’t be a part of providing free abortions to whoever wants them at any stage of a pregnancy for any reason.” The bill ensures public money to pay for women’s health services, including abortion, something Springfield’s “Right to Life” is against. “We are saddened,” President of the organization, Tim Moore, said. “By the passage of abortion legislation that redefines when human life begins and seeks additional means of killing that life. The same group of politicians want taxpayers to fund these abhorrent practices.” Just last week, Governor Bruce Rauner pledged to veto the bill because of the public money involved. But after working on the bill for three years, Representative Feigenholtz said she will keep pushing for it anyway. “I’m hoping that once it gets to his desk,” she said. “That 250,000 women will knock on his door, and say, sign the bill, and he would change his mind,” Illinois Republican Party National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte responded: “Instead of working to solve our state’s catastrophic challenges, Madigan Democrats just passed a radical bill for taxpayer funded abortions, at a cost of $60 million, while we don’t have a budget. Springfield yet again shows it’s tone-deaf to the concerns of Illinoisans.” Before landing on the Governor’s desk, the bill will still have to pass in the Senate.)
