Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)

My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, 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. My Democrat 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/08/14/peter-strzok-tweets-gofundme-link-after-fbi-firing-heres-how-much-hes-raised
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Peter Strzok, the anti-Trump FBI official at the center of the “deep state” allegations, opened a new social media account and posted a link asking for donations from the public after being fired Monday. Here’s how much he’s raised Strzok opened a Twitter account Monday after being fired from the bureau and posted just one message on the social media service. It was a statement explaining how the Deputy Director of the FBI had overruled the decision to punish Strzok with “a 60-day suspension and demotion from supervisory duties was the appropriate punishment.” “This decision should be deeply troubling to all Americans,” the letter continued. The statement made the claim that “the decision to terminate was taken in response to political pressure, and to punish Special Agent Strzok for political speech protected by the First Amendment, not on a fair and independent examination of the facts.” “It is a decision that produces only one winner – those who seek to harm our country and weaken our democracy,” the statement concluded. “The FBI and the American people deserve better.” Strzok included a link to a GoFundMe donation page. After only being active for 12 hours, the donation page reached its goal of $150,000, and increased its goal to $350,000. The page stated that the funds would go towards Strzok’s legal defense and his loss of income. Allies of the president have used the released texts from Strzok to his mistress and FBI lawyer Lisa Page to substantiate claims of an orchestrated effort to defeat the president and his policies. Strok denied that the texts proved anything beyond his personal contempt for the president, and the Inspector General’s report said there was no evidence his personal bias interfered with his professional conduct. Nevertheless, Trump and his supporters say that the bias in Strzok’s texts prove that the special counsel’s Russian investigation was begun under dubious circumstances and should be immediately shut down.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats view the Midwest as a particularly fertile ground to pick up governorships this cycle. In addition to Wisconsin, the open seat races in Michigan and Iowa are possible pickup opportunities. In Illinois, GOP Gov. Bruce Rauner is viewed as the most vulnerable Republican in the country, and Democrats are hoping that the deep pockets of Hyatt hotel chain heir J.B. Pritzker will help them take back control of the governor’s mansion.)

— Fighting Conspiracy Theories, Sandy Hook Parent Is Thwarted by Online Policies – Sapna Maheshwari and John Herrman (DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants, etc. to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, but failing that, to dictate what is included in the emails and what is not included in the emails.)

In my defense, in my parents’ defense, in my grandparents’ defense, in my great grandparents’ defense, and in my great great grandparent’s defense, they never lived in the “American South” and they always lived in northeast Illinois.)

WASHINGTON POST
— ‘Everyone signed one’: Trump is aggressive in his use of nondisclosure agreements, even in government – Josh Dawsey and Ashley Parker (DIERSEN: In my opinion, my Democrat superiors in the federal government were secretly overjoyed a) that I disclosed their giving preference to their Democrat employees, and especially to their Democrat employees who were minority, female, younger, and/or veteran and b) that I disclosed their discriminating against their Republican employee, and especially against their Republican employees who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. They saw my disclosures as being proof that they were doing what Democrat politicians wanted them to do. They saw my disclosures as helping them hire, retain, and promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females. They saw my disclosures as helping them get rid of their Republican employees.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Dozens of White House aides have signed NDAs in exchange for working for Trump, who has long relied on such agreements in his business career, according to current and former administration employees. But NDAs have not been widely used by past administrations outside the transition time between presidents, in part because most legal experts believe such agreements are not legally enforceable for public employees. Copies of Trump NDAs obtained by The Washington Post or described by current and former aides lay out breathtakingly broad prohibitions on behavior and appear to be drawn heavily from similar contracts used in the past by the Trump Organization, the president’s family firm. Under one agreement from the 2016 campaign, signers promised not to “demean or disparage publicly” Trump, his company or any member of his family — and also not to assist any other politician exploring a federal or state office. An agreement circulated in the White House last year barred signers from sharing any information they had learned in the building, according to several aides who signed the document. And the agreement proposed to Manigault Newman after her firing from the White House would have forbidden her from releasing derogatory information not only about Trump and his family, but about Vice President Pence and his family as well.)

My Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates stressed to my Democrat superiors, and especially to those who were veterans, that I avoided the draft by getting four student deferments 1966-1970 and a financial hardship deferment 1970-1971. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that non-veterans like me should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, and downsizing, and that a) that instead of me, the Post Office should have hired a veteran in 1966, b) that the Post Office should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a veteran could have my job, c) that instead of me, IRS should have hired a veteran in 1971, d) that instead of me, IRS should have promoted veterans in 1972, 1973, and 1974, e) that instead of me, GAO should have hired a veteran in 1980, f) that instead of me, GAO should have promoted a veteran in 1986, and g) that GAO should have gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a veteran could have my job and my preferred corner office.)

— Age Discrimination By Employers Is Common, AARP Survey Says (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/nextavenue/2018/08/12/age-discrimination-by-employers-is-common-aarp-survey-says/#36c0942b2cc5
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The vast majority of Americans who work into in their 50s, 60s and beyond need to keep making money as they grow older but encounter widespread age discrimination in job hunts and at the workplace, a new AARP survey has found. AARP surveyed 3,900 people age 45 and older who were working full-time or part-time or looking for work and learned that more than nine in 10 older workers see age discrimination as common. And 61% say they’ve personally seen or experienced it. Women are more likely than men to have seen or experienced age discrimination, according to the survey. More than three quarters of African-American respondents, 60% of Latinos and 59% of whites reported seeing or experiencing it. What AARP Says About Age Discrimination “Older workers want to work, they’re ready to work and they need to work,” said Susan Weinstock, AARP’s vice president of financial resilience. “They should have the opportunity to be judged on their merits, rather than their age.” But the survey results strongly suggest older job applicants routinely are denied that opportunity. Since turning 40, a striking 30% of respondents experienced at least one of these six actions and 17% experienced two or more: not getting hired for a job they applied for because of their age; heard negative remarks related to their older age from a colleague; passed up for a chance to get ahead because of their age; heard negative remarks related to their older age from a supervisor; were laid off, fired or forced out of job because of their age or were denied access to training or professional development opportunities because of their age. Among respondents who’ve applied for a new position in the past two years, 44% said they were asked for age-related information such as birth dates and graduation years. Such information is often used to discriminate against older applicants and requests for it discourage many older workers from applying, according to AARP. Fears of Getting Hired After a Job Loss About one third of the survey respondents said they doubted they’d be able to quickly land another job if theirs was eliminated. Almost half of them said the major reason would be age discrimination. Government data shows that nearly one third of workers 55 and older who lose their jobs are unemployed a financially-dangerous six months or more. By contrast, just 18% of those ages 16 to 54 are out of work similar periods. The AARP survey also suggests that most older workers don’t think they have much protection against age discrimination. While a majority reported seeing or experiencing age bias, barely 3% said they’d filed a formal complaint with an employer or government agency.)

August 12 Morning Edition

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Despite 2 voter rejections, Wheaton-Warrenville Community Unit School District 200 plans to construct new building — and gets sued over it – Bob Goldsborough (DIERSEN: What are your connections with this issue? My wife and I have paid real estate taxes big time to District 200 since 1978. We have never attended any District 200 school and we have never sent any child to any District 200 school. The District 200 headquarters is in my precinct as well as Whittier Grade School and Edison Middle School. Janet Shaw is a fellow Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeeman. I know Dan Wagner and his wife. I understand that the lawsuit has been assigned to Judge Bonnie Wheaton.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/ct-met-wheaton-school-preschool-project-20180806-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Twice since 2013, voters in the Wheaton and Warrenville area have rejected referendum proposals to raise taxes for the construction of a new preschool. Despite that, the Community Unit School District 200 board is proceeding with building a new Jefferson Early Childhood Center without voter approval through a different form of financing. But now a resident who opposes that measure has sued the district in DuPage County Circuit Court, seeking to halt the plans. Those in favor of building a new childhood center call the current 26,500-square-foot building outdated and note that the district in recent years has renovated or built anew every other school building except Jefferson. Jefferson, which was constructed in 1958 and had 277 pupils as of June, offers a traditional preschool and early childhood intervention for youths with mental or physical disabilities. Voters rejected a referendum proposal for a new Jefferson school in 2013, and again said no in 2017 as part of a much larger, $132 million proposal involving other district schools as well. Board President Jim Vroman said that after the 2017 referendum proposal failed, the district surveyed voters and found that “a substantial majority” supported building a new Jefferson. “That told us that voters were against the tax increase that the referendum would have generated if we had proceeded,” he said. Instead, the board agreed with a suggestion by a district financial adviser to use lease certificates, or secured lease credit financing, to fund a new Jefferson. District 200 would oversee construction of the estimated $15.5 million, 41,544-square-foot building, while Zions Bank would own the building. . .Frequent board critic Janet Shaw, who runs a blog that scrutinizes the district’s finances, long has questioned the legality of using lease certificates and added that “my real problem is that we don’t need (the new school building).” Shaw has filed suit against District 200, demanding a halt to the current plan to finance a new Jefferson. She is seeking a judge to require District 200’s board to submit a proposal for the new school building to the public via a referendum question. “District 200 is tampering with election results right here in DuPage County,” Shaw said. “The district thinks that by using the magic word ‘lease,’ its two failed referendum efforts and the will of the community are somehow erased and it can proceed in an identical manner as if a referendum had been adopted by the community to build and finance a new school.” A district spokesperson declined to comment on the lawsuit. Dan Wagner, a parent and longtime proponent of a new Jefferson, called the existing building outmoded, with some instruction occurring in converted broom closets. He added that the building lacks air conditioning, which precludes some special needs pupils from participating in gym classes.)

We are happy to have her in a leadership role.” As a committeeman, Jones will represent the GOP voters of the precinct at the county level. “I grew up in Rogers Park and moved to the Northwest Side nine years ago,” Jones said. “I’ve been a Chicago police officer for the last 15 years, spending 10 of those years in patrol on the Westside of the City. I actually started working for the city when I was a teenager as a lifeguard in Rogers Park.” Jones is married to a Chicago firefighter and has two daughters. She was appointed by Matt Podgorski, NWS GOP Club chairman and 39th ward committeeman. The NWS GOP Club also has a party planned for Aug. 11 to welcome its card-carrying union members and encourage other union members to explore the club. Republican candidate and Chicago police sergeant Ammie Kessem is slated to attend the event. Kessem is challenging incumbent Rep. Robert Martwick (D-Chicago) for Illinois’ 19th House District seat in November’s general election.)

LEGAL NEWS LINE
— EEOC Sues The University of Wisconsin System for Age Discrimination – EEOC (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, EEOC should sue the federal government. The federal government wastes the careers of and gets rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who the federal government 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://legalnewsline.com/stories/511525152-u-s-equal-employment-opportunity-commission-eeoc-sues-the-university-of-wisconsin-system-for-age-discrimination
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The University of Wisconsin System violated federal law when it refused to hire a former longtime employee because of her age, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed. According to the EEOC’s lawsuit, Bambi Butzlaff Voss, who was 53 years old and subject to a layoff from her job as a Marketing and Communications Specialist at the University of Wisconsin’s Waukesha campus, applied for six different positions with the University of Wisconsin System’s central office in Madison, including an Associate Marketing and Communications Specialist position. Butzlaff Voss had 25 years of experience performing tasks similar, if not identical, to the ones in the position she applied for. But, because of Butzlaff Voss’s age, the University refused to hire her. Instead, it hired a 23-year-old candidate with less than two years of experience. Such alleged conduct violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). The EEOC sued in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (EEOC v. Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System, Civil Action No: 3:18-cv-00602) after first trying to settle through its conciliation process. The lawsuit asks the court to order the University to hire Butzlaff Voss and provide back pay as well as pay liquidated damages. The lawsuit also seeks a permanent injunction prohibiting the University from discriminating against future candidates based on their age. “The Age Discrimination in Employment Act has been on the books for five decades,” said Gregory Gochanour, regional attorney for the EEOC’s Chicago District. “The EEOC will make sure employers follow the law, even if it means going to court to get the message across.” Julianne Bowman, district director of the EEOC’s Chicago District, said, “Workers over 40 years of age should have the same opportunities as those workers less than half their age. Ignoring a candidate’s decades of experience relevant to the available job, because of her age, to hire someone with less than two years of experience is illegal discrimination.”)

WASHINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: An anti-Trump says “Your everyday Republican has some galling views.” According to my critics/opponents, not only does everyone have the right to punish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, everyone should punish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They especially want the following to punish me: a) Milton Township Republican Central Committee, b) DuPage County Republican Central Committee, c) Illinois Republican Party, d) all the Republican officials who represent my precinct, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, e) TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, f) Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, g) Illinois Center Right Coalition, h) American Association of Political Consultants, i) etc.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/your-everyday-republican-has-some-galling-views/2018/08/10/96b78edc-9bfc-11e8-b60b-1c897f17e185_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The views of rank-and-file Republicans, captured in voter surveys, are nothing less than galling. Let’s lead with a poll conducted by the global marketing firm Ipsos and reported by the Daily Beast. It found that 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” When asked if President Trump should shut down The Post, CNN and the New York Times, 23 percent of Republicans said yes. These findings are obviously troubling to me as a member of the Fourth Estate. But in the Trump era, assaults on the media come with the territory. More disturbing to me as a citizen is that those Trump cultists would knowingly and willingly give him the power to trample on the First Amendment, destroying an essential part of our democracy that he doesn’t like. That is appalling. They either don’t know or care about what Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote in New York Times Co. v. United States in 1971: The Founding Fathers intended that “the press was to serve the governed, not the governors.”)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: Republican Governors in Blue States Find a Way to Get Along – Jennifer Steinhauer
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/10/us/politics/republican-governors-democratic-states.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A possible exception is Illinois, where Gov. Bruce Rauner, a Republican, has adopted a largely combative stance against the state’s Democrats. At the same time, he has annoyed his own party so much with his moderate social positions and budget woes that he barely survived a primary in the spring, inspiring a third-party bid from a conservative candidate. “Bruce Rauner thought he could be Scott Walker when he got elected,” Thomas Bowen, a Democratic strategist and former political director for Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago, said, referring to the Republican governor of Wisconsin. “He forgot that Walker had a supermajority in the state legislature and he did not.” “There was a playbook for how to be a Republican in Illinois that’s been replayed over and over,” Mr. Bowen said. “Be fiscally astute, compromise and don’t pick fights unnecessarily.” Mr. Rauner will face a formidable opponent in J. B. Pritzker, a billionaire venture capitalist. The governor has run several attack ads criticizing Mr. Pritzker’s effort to get a reduction in property taxes on one of his homes, citing the mansion’s lack of working toilets.)

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/local/gray-matters/article/trump-white-house-media-kaitlan-collins-cnn-13144480.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As long as reporters have covered government officials, they’ve sought greater access than the government was willing to allow. The White House excluded a CNN reporter from an international trade announcement with the president of the European Commission on July 25, in apparent retaliation after she shouted unwelcome questions at President Donald Trump during an Oval Office appearance. Many observers viewed this move as an escalation of the Trump administration’s hostility toward journalists. The Washington Post called the decision to exclude CNN’s Kaitlan Collins “highly unusual and possibly unprecedented.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., called it “an offense against the First Amendment interests of all of us.” But did the White House actually violate the Constitution? As a media law professor, I regularly remind students that the First Amendment right of access to government officials, records and events is surprisingly uncertain. The First Amendment guarantees all Americans freedom to speak and publish without government interference. It has been broadly interpreted by the Supreme Court to forbid the government from restraining or punishing a speaker based on the content of the speaker’s message. While journalists have a clearly established First Amendment right to publish the news they’ve gathered — even in extreme cases, like the leak of stolen Pentagon documents — it’s much less clear that the First Amendment protects the right to gather the news in the first place. A right to publish, but not a ‘right to gather’? CNN has not indicated that it plans to take any legal action over Collins’ exclusion. In addition to being awkward — imagine a journalist taking the witness stand to testify against the White House communications director — a court case over a withdrawn invitation would face legal obstacles. The courts have refused to recognize an overarching “constitutional right of access” to government information. Instead, they have picked off cases with narrow, specific rulings. For instance, the Supreme Court recognized in Richmond Newspapers v. Virginia that there is a constitutional right to cover a criminal trial. Likewise, federal appeals courts agree the First Amendment guarantees the right to videotape police making arrests in a public place. At the same time, judges have found no constitutional right to obtain government documents or to enter crime scenes that are off-limits to the public. Does CNN’s White House correspondent, or any journalist, have a First Amendment “right” to a press pass or a spot at a news conference? Since the Supreme Court said in its 1972 Branzburg ruling that journalists have no right to insist on greater access than the general public, probably not. That being said, journalists do have a right not to be retaliated against, regardless of what form the retaliation takes. Retaliatory exclusions can violate the law Even if attending a White House event is not a constitutionally guaranteed right, that doesn’t mean the government is free to take it away as a punishment. The government cannot take away even a purely discretionary privilege if the motive is to penalize speech. Even though there is no entitlement to hold a government job, the Supreme Court decided in 1966 that public employment cannot be denied on the basis of viewpoint. And even though there is no entitlement to receive a discretionary government grant, the justices ruled in 2013 that a grant cannot be denied because the applicant expresses a view different from the government’s. In other words, any action by a government agency intended to punish or deter a speaker for unwanted speech can violate the Constitution. That same legal principle would apply today if a federal official denied a government “privilege” to a journalist on the basis of a disagreeable viewpoint. In the CNN situation, if Collins lost something of value, like the ability to attend a presidential appearance, because of the content of her speech, she has the essential ingredients of a First Amendment case. The White House likely would argue that it was Collins’ method of delivery — raising her voice, after being asked not to — and not the content of her message that earned her a disinvitation. That would make a First Amendment claim blurrier. overnment agencies can regulate the “time, place and manner” of speaking, the Supreme Court has ruled, as long as the restrictions are reasonable and enforced evenhandedly. Were a case to go to court, Collins and CNN might have to demonstrate that other journalists have shouted friendlier questions without consequence. Journalists’ rights need clarifying)

— Weekly Standard Cheers Big Tech Blacklisting Infowars; Calls for More – John Nolte (DIERSEN: Which individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries blacklist you? I should write a book about those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that blacklist me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/08/10/nolte-weekly-standard-cheers-big-tech-blacklisting-infowars-calls-more/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As you can see, in its ongoing efforts to wrangle cable news invites, TWS is adopting the exact same Orwellian language we hear from the book burners in the establishment media and from Social Justice Warriors–buzzwords like “healthy” and “optimal” and “be better.” This is the language of censors, of those who purge heretics for wrongthink under the guise of doing what is best for “the community.” You see, they are the ones who know what opinions and ideas we should and should not have access to — for our own good. Jonathan Last’s piece is also peppered with the non-argument that private companies should be allowed to set their own “standards,” even though no one is calling on these monster-sized companies not to have standards.)

https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/08/10/pollak-cnn-wants-white-children-to-see-race-not-to-be-kind-to-everyone/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: CNN published an op-ed on Thursday that advises the parents of white children to begin educating them to notice racial differences at an early age — “constantly going out of our way to name differences” — rather than teaching them simply to “be kind to everyone.” Parents of white children must also bring them to social spaces “where they aren’t in the overwhelming racial majority,” and teach them about “more people of color freedom fighters than the few they hear about at school” to encourage “antiracist behaviors.” That is just some of the advice from Drake University professor Jennifer Harvey in an article titled, “Raising white kids to be racially sensitive — and proactive.” The obvious implication is that white children have a unique racist burden that others do not. CNN often accuses President Donald Trump of racism and of dividing Americans by race, often on the basis of its own imaginings, such as the (false) claim he only refers to black people, e.g. LeBron James, as “dumb.”)

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2018/08/02/speaker_race_if_trump_endorses_will_it_matter.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Conservative outside groups are already getting behind Jordan. Leaders of these organizations say he is dedicated to upholding Trump’s agenda and would help rally the base in the upcoming midterms. Some have even planned ad campaigns to help elect Jordan as speaker. “This is of course about base and turnout, and you left some big tickets from the Trump agenda on the cutting room floor,” said Adam Brandon, president of the conservative group FreedomWorks, naming Obamacare repeal and immigration reform as the top items. “Jim Jordan has credibility with the base on all of those issues.” He added that it’s unlikely Trump will make an endorsement in the race. “I actually think that President Trump will work with whoever is speaker. I would advise him to stay out of it right now,” Brandon said. Another conservative leader said that while it’s unclear whom the president will endorse, Jordan is more in line with his agenda. “The President has praised Jordan many times. … [L]ike Trump, he wants to accomplish right now what was promised to the American people,” said Brent Bozell, president of ForAmerica, in a statement. Jordan’s path to the speakership will likely be difficult regardless of whether the president weighs in. Ryan has already given McCarthy his support and said that most Republicans see him as the successor. “I think we all believe that Kevin is the right person,” said Ryan in an interview with NBC News in April after he announced his retirement.)

To force me to resign in 1969, my Democrat Park Forest Post Office superiors said that I would not be available to work enough hours even though I was available to work each and every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, holiday, and every day that NIU was not in session. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, and/or a veteran.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-aldermen-schedule-fair-workweek-20180807-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The ordinance would require Chicago employers to post work schedules for their employees at least two weeks in advance. Employers would be required to pay their employees for at least one hour extra if the schedule changed or work was added or subtracted. Companies also could face fines of $500 for each employee affected in each pay period if they fail to comply. If employers make changes with 24 hours’ notice or less to on-call workers, the workers would have to be compensated. Companies with hourly employees or salaried workers earning less than $50,000 annually would be affected. That would sweep thousands of Chicago businesses under the new rules, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce says. There’s a lot more heavy-handedness in the 17-page ordinance affecting hiring, part-time workers and flexibility. Before they begin work, for example, new hires must be given in writing the median number of hours they can expect to work and a list of days and times they will not be expected to work.)

A memo shared with The Associated Press on Wednesday and dated July 20 spells out orders to high-ranking Army officials to stop processing discharges of men and women who enlisted in the special immigrant program, effective immediately. It was not clear how many recruits were impacted by the action, and the Pentagon did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the memo. “Effective immediately, you will suspend processing of all involuntary separation actions,” read the memo signed by Acting Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs Marshall Williams.)

PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Fox News host Laura Ingraham slammed by anti-Trumps over immigration comments involving Philadelphia.
http://www.philly.com/philly/news/nation_world/laura-ingraham-fox-news-immigration-sanctuary-cities-demographic-changes-20180809.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Controversial Fox News host Laura Ingraham is once again the target of criticism, this time over comments she made about the country’s changing demographic landscape, which she blamed on illegal — and legal — immigration. “Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like,” Ingraham said on The Ingraham Angle on Wednesday night, noting that “it does seem like the America that we know and love doesn’t exist anymore.” “From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed,” Ingraham continued. “Now, much of this is related to both illegal, and in some cases legal, immigration that, of course, progressives love.”)
