— Richard Spencer is a threat Republicans must purge – THOMAS MCARDLE
http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/campaign/309227-richard-spencers-white-nationalists-are-a-threat-republicans-must
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But race is not why immigration – both legal and illegal — must be significantly reduced over the long term. A 44-page January 2014 report authored by the late Phyllis Schlafly and Eagle Forum, “How Mass (Legal) Immigration Dooms a Conservative Republican Party,” laid out what’s really at stake. “Immigrants and their children are more supportive of government expansion, Obamacare, affirmative action, gun control, greater environmental regulation, and of other issues championed by the Left,” Schlafly warned, buttressing the case with mounds of polling data. It’s not the color of their skin, but rather the content of their political creed.  Today, even the white Europeans Spencer romanticizes would, as new U.S. citizens, help their Mexican-American fellow immigrants elect liberal Democrats and impose lots more socialism on the Land of the Free. When President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1965 immigration act, a grinning Bobby and Teddy Kennedy at his side in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, he assured the nation it was “not a revolutionary bill.  It does not affect the lives of millions.”  Yet in the 1940s, ‘50s and ‘60s combined, fewer than 7 million immigrants came to America; after the immigration act, from the ‘70s to today, 35 million arrived here, including nearly 14 million in the single decade from 2001 to 2010. Not only was it a revolution, it’s been the biggest voter recruitment drive for the Democratic Party in history. If Trump is to lead a successful counter-revolution and stop this ongoing disaster, he cannot be tainted by those falsely hailing him as an ethnic cleanser. Decades ago, William F. Buckley purged the Birchers and other genuine “deplorables” within conservatism so the right could rise to power. Trump, or his surrogates, are similarly going to have to purge Spencer and his minions – and do it before the TV cameras – if the new president is to keep his promise to regain control of who comes to and shapes America.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: During the campaign, Trump promised a tightening of the federal government workforce; reportedly, his allies are working on plans to freeze hiring, end automatic raises, make it easier to fire incompetent workers, and convert federal retirement benefits to resemble more of a private sector, 401(k)-style plan. According to The Washington Post, Trump will likely seek counsel from Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who famously angered public sector unions in 2011 when he ended mandatory union dues, required public employees to begin paying a portion of their health and retirement benefits, and all but eliminated collective bargaining for government employees.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Help Wanted at Google  The tech giant is looking for someone who can speak Republican. – Editorial (DIERSEN: Should I apply for this job?  Who in Illinois would my critics/opponents want to apply for this job?)
http://www.wsj.com/articles/help-wanted-at-google-1481070488
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The reality of a Donald Trump Presidency has been hard to process for much of Washington, but one example is especially notable. The good progressives at Google have announced they are looking for someone who can communicate with those strange humanlike life-forms: conservatives. Google recently posted a job opening (https://www.google.com/about/careers/search#!t=jo&jid=227695001&) in Washington for a manager of “Conservative Outreach and Public Policy Partnerships.” The employee “will act as Google’s liaison to conservative, libertarian and free market groups” and will be “part organizer, part advocate and part policy wonk.” Ideal candidates have eight years experience—and have attended at least one but no more than three Tea Party rallies. OK, we made that last one up. The company has been known to hire Republican politicos in the past, but Google will need greater political diversity soon. The company’s lobbyists, executives and other affiliates visited the Obama White House 427 times between 2009 and November 2015. The top lobbyist stopped by more than many of her counterparts in the industry combined. Google no doubt planned to continue wielding influence in a Hillary Clinton Administration. Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google’s parent company, advised John Podesta and Mrs. Clinton’s campaign on digital strategy and targeting voters, though perhaps not in the Upper Midwest. A report from the Campaign for Accountability turned up 57 people affiliated with both Mrs. Clinton (whether her campaign, foundation or State Department) and Google entities. Now Google will have to scramble to preserve its enormous influence on everything from copyrights to privacy regulation. Whether Mr. Trump will indulge rent-seeking from Google and friends is anyone’s guess. But maybe Google’s Republican unicorn can host a staff seminar on the free-market philosophy that made the tech giant possible.)

— Wheaton officials voice concerns about proposed facility for new, expectant single mothers  Facility proposed for former Wheaton Inn – ERIC SCHELKOPF
http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2016/12/06/wheaton-officials-voice-concerns-about-proposed-facility-for-new-expectant-single-mothers/ah07kpi/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Greg Dose, attorney for the applicant, said the facility would not be considered a day-care facility and therefore would not have to be licensed by the state. “This is their own residence,” Dose said. “They are not taking their child to another location.” That drew concerns from councilwoman Suzanne Fitch, who said she thought the facility would provide child care so mothers could attend college classes. As proposed, they would have to be enrolled in college to participate in the program. Mayor Michael Gresk also voiced concerns about who would be watching the infants. “To the casual observer, it would appear that if you are going to have 8, 10, 12 kids and you are going to have mothers going to classes during the course of the day, somebody’s got to watch the infants and perhaps toddlers along the way also,” Gresk said. Dose said he thought some of the women would do the babysitting while others attended college classes, but he was not sure of the arrangement. Florczak-Seeman was not able to attend the Dec. 5 meeting. Councilman Thor Saline also noted that floor plans for the facility show only 10 beds, although the facility could serve as many as 12 women. “Did I miss something, or will the plans change?” he asked. In response, Dose said he wasn’t sure. This would be the company’s first facility, which will be called The Butterfly Garden…A Place for Healing and Transformation.)

— Black Activists Launch Monthly Fee System For Whites To Pay Blacks – Alex Pfeiffer
http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/05/black-activists-launch-monthly-fee-system-for-whites-to-pay-blacks/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Liberal black activists have launched a monthly “subscription box” designed for white people “to not only financially support Black femme freedom fighters, but also complete measurable tasks in the fight against white supremacy.”  The subscription service is called Safety Pin Box and was launched last week. Wearing a safety pin has recently become a symbol within the liberal community for one to show solidarity with minorities. The group is headed by Leslie Mac and Marissa Jenae Johnson. Johnson is one of the Black Lives Matter protesters who interrupted Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during a speech in Seattle last year. There are four different types of subscriptions offered by the group.

Other sitting representatives who started new terms on the 18-member county board are Don Puchalski, Sam Tornatore, Sean Noonan, Gary Grasso, Brian Krajewski, Amy Grant, James Healy, Robert Larsen and Jim Zay. Two new county board members — Tim Elliott of Glen Ellyn and Janice Anderson of Naperville — also were sworn in during the inauguration event in Wheaton. Both are Republicans.

The countywide elected officials who took the oath of office Monday were State’s Attorney Robert Berlin, Recorder Fred Bucholz, County Auditor Bob Grogan, Coroner Richard Jorgensen, and Circuit Court Clerk Chris Kachiroubas. County board Chairman Dan Cronin said during the event that he’s “energized” by the what the county has achieved and the challenges it faces.)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Presidential election was major setback for cultural Marxism’s hegemony – VICTOR GAETAN
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/presidential-election-was-major-setback-for-cultural-marxisms-hegemony/article/2608933
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Post-election protests continued in recent days in Chicago, Portland, and Omaha. Black Friday was displaced in Seattle by a Black Lives Matter protest of about 1,000 people combining police brutality and anti-Trump themes. But voters soundly rejected left-wing strategies of disruption when they dismissed Hillary Clinton, who aligned herself with the BLM movement, heavily financed by George Soros. Her loss was a major setback for cultural Marxism and its contemporary manifestations, a pernicious ideology that deserves to be squarely acknowledged in order to permanently eject it from America’s public square. The Black Lives Matter movement was born in 2013, “rooted in the labor and love of queer Black women” as founder Alicia Garza explains. Two years later, it had morphed into a sprawling, chaotic indictment of police brutality, indifferent to facts (twice as many whites were killed by police in 2015 than blacks, for example) and directly linked to revenge killings of innocent officers.)

SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
— ‘Boomer Hottie’ Brooker invites all to the Age March – Leslie Katz  (DIERSEN: What is your position on age discrimination?  Biden is 74 years old.  How old are you?  I am 68 years old.  My Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates started to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being old in 1973 when I was 25 because I had failed to make GS-13 (currently $92,632).  I did not make GS-12 (currently $77,899) until 1974 and I did not make GS-13 until I was 38 in 1986.)
http://www.sfexaminer.com/scoop-boomer-hottie-brooker-invites-age-march/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One night many years ago, Barbara Rose Brooker had a dream — kind of like Martin Luther King Jr.  She was marching, wearing her Joan Crawford-ankle strap platform shoes, and imagining a world where people aren’t judged by their age. About nine months later, she organized the first Age March, a grassroots event in 2010 that brought some 200 participants of all ages to Fort Mason in The City. The 80-year-old San Francisco writer, painter and teacher is eager to talk about the third Age March, which starts at noon Sunday, Dec. 4 at Gough and Union streets, and ends at Union and Fillmore. “We’re going to celebrate age pride and our real ages and fight to end age discrimination,” says Brooker, noting that the issue affects so many aspects of life, from dating to housing to jobs. Brooker, a longtime anti-ageism activist, has experience with such discrimination. She says she’s applied for jobs she’s clearly qualified for, more or less been hired on the phone, then turned away after meeting the prospective employer in person. The author of “The Viagra Diaries,” who coined the phrase “Boomer Hottie” and appeared with Sharon Osbourne on TV, also has been rejected by Hollywood. HBO was slated to make a movie based on “Viagra” with Goldie Hawn, but canned the project after “Sex and the City’s” Darren Star wrote a bad script, Brooker says (and changed the main character’s age from 70 to 51). Brooker, who writes a column called “Boomer In The City” in J, the Bay Area’s Jewish news weekly, says she often meets people, even 25- and 35-year olds in the tech industry, who experience ageism in the workplace. Still, she remains hopeful. “Before I leave this planet, I want this movement to go global,” she says, adding that she has no money and is seeking corporate and governmental support and funding. She says, “Dianne [Feinstein] and Nancy [Pelosi] would love this!” Festivities on Sunday include the rollicking New Orleans’ style Bird Polk St. Second Line Brass Band, which is leading the march, and brief comments from Kaushik Roy of Shanti Project and Mary Eileen Williams, host of radio’s “The Feisty Side of Fifty.” By the way, everything is free, and people of all ages and persuasions are heartily invited to join the fun. Brooker is pleased, too, to report that the San Francisco Police Department waived fees for the event, and is providing a motorcycle lead.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-first-generation-college-students-parents-met-20161205-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: From filling out forms and writing essays to building a resume and gathering letters of recommendation, applying to college is a rigorous part of high school. But for 16-year-old Bryan Dominguez, the stress is magnified. Unlike many of his peers at Buffalo Grove High School, he doesn’t have anyone at home who’s been through the process. The son of Mexican immigrants and the oldest of four children, Dominguez, of Wheeling, will be the first in his family to go to college. “The whole concept of college is very confusing in general to me and my parents,” he said. “All I know is my one goal in life is to go to college. Being the first person in my family … is something I hold very close to my heart.” Recognizing first-generation college students have unique needs, Arlington Heights-based Township High School District 214 developed a field trip for its students to tour two colleges with their parents as part of learning more about the entire process.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— How to Help Working People – Editorial  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the federal government overpaid me and gave me retirement, health insurance, vacation days, sick days, and other benefits that were too generous.  In my defense, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) I earned a job-related professional license when I was 33. Further, many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/05/opinion/how-to-help-working-people.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THE GOVERNMENT AS MODEL EMPLOYER Mr. Obama has issued executive orders to raise pay and improve conditions at companies that do business with the government. The orders, which require contractors to pay employees at least $10.10 an hour, provide paid sick days and report wage-and-safety violations to procurement officials, have value beyond helping federal contract employees. They also set an example for the entire private sector to follow. As president, Mr. Trump will be free to ditch these executive orders. As a private employer, his own approach to low-paid labor indicates that model-employer orders would be the first to go. But in his new job, Mr. Trump will be the nation’s chief executive. Does he want to be known for lowering basic standards?)

— The downside of happiness at work – Rex Huppke  (DIERSEN: How happy are/were you at work?  While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my superiors were always under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to get rid of me so that a Democrat could have my job, preferably, a Democrat who was minority, female, and/or young than me.  So of course, my Democrat superiors did everything that they could to make me unhappy.  To make me unhappy, 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 $18,459 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, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Slamming the media may be all the rage in U.S. politics, but Chicago isn’t immune.  The morning after the presidential election, the Cook County Bar Association — Chicago’s pre-eminent organization for black lawyers — issued a curious, stinging rebuke of veteran CBS2 investigative reporter Pam Zekman for a report in which she all but accused an elderly black judge of malingering to collect $250,000 in disability payments. In a strident four-page missive posted on the bar association’s website, the group complained that Zekman exhibited a “complete lack of journalistic and moral integrity” in her Nov. 4 report about Judge Arnette Hubbard.)

CANADA FREE PRESS
— Indoctrinating the Young in Hate Factories  Our education system has created a multitude of young, inexperienced, poorly educated, indoctrinated minds, speaking as with authority…scary! – Ray DiLorenzo
http://canadafreepress.com/article/indoctrinating-the-young-in-hate-factories
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you want to learn to hate America, your nearest public school or college is waiting for you.  If it is a university you want to attend, don’t worry about the cost, the government (taxpayers) will pick up the tab as student loans are about to be forgiven to the tune of $108 billion and will probably go much higher. Our schools across the country have created and nurtured millions of godless, America-hating, angry, statist, whiny, cry babies and we will all be paying dearly for it, now and in the future. In McAllen, Texas, teachers tried to force a teenager to sing the Mexican national anthem and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.  She refused saying it was against her beliefs.  She was subsequently thrown out of the class and given a failing grade for the day. University of Hawaii professor, Huanani-Kay Trask has taught students “We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is.  The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it.” University of Southern California professor, Darry Sragow, teaches hate in his Regulation of Elections and Political Finance class, telling them “Republicans are stupid, racist losers,” and that they are “angry old white people.” University of Rhode Island history professor, Erik Loomis, tweeted, “I want Wayne LaPierre’s (NRA President) head on a stick.”  He asked, “Can we define dues to the NRA as contributing to a terrorist organization?” Scott Compton, an English teacher at Chapin High School, Chapin, SC, was put on administrative leave after he allegedly threw an American flag on the floor and stomped on it in front of his students.  He chose to resign.  He probably teaches at a college now. A geography teacher at Lumberton High School in Texas encourages students to dress in Islamic clothing and actually instructed them to refer to the 9/11 hijackers as “freedom fighters.”  They were also taught that the Holocaust was not genocide.  John Valastro, the superintendent of the school district, told Fox News that the teacher did absolutely nothing wrong. The schools may defend themselves by saying they teach critical thinking…hogwash!  They are intolerant of any opinions contrary to their own and the student with the guts to stick to his/her values risks paying dearly in poor grades and harassment. What do the students have to say?  A new video is circulating asking college students if they prefer Castro or Donald Trump.  Every student in the video struggled with the answer.  One student said, “Well that’s a tough question.”  Another student said, “If Donald Trump’s administration is what he said it would be, then Fidel Castro would have been the better leader to the Cuban people than Donald Trump will be.”  Another student: “I feel that he really changed Cuba in so many ways that really made possibilities for the Cuban people nearly endless.” Our education system has created a multitude of young, inexperienced, poorly educated, indoctrinated minds, speaking as with authority…scary! This problem is not limited or unusual.  It has become widespread and is now a threat to the very framework of our country and society.  Jihadists and Socialists/Communists can access considerable encouragement and support from many of our young people today.  So much so that there should be concern for a growing 5th column ready to strike at our very heart.  We had better take heed.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Chicago’s deadliest neighborhoods get greenest cops – Mick Dumke and Frank Main  (DIERSEN: When were you green?  When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates treated me like I was extremely green.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.  I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $77,899-$88,286. Much of the work that I did for IRS during those 5 1/2 years was similar to what I did for GAO including interviewing, investigation, data analysis, and report writing. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul.  I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.  Virtually all of my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats who GAO had hired straight out of college. They had little or no work experience outside of GAO.  They wanted every GAO hire to start at the bottom like they did.  They had an extremely low opinion of executive branch employees and of union members like I had been at IRS for almost 9 years.  They exhibited an extremely low opinion my knowledge of IRS that I had gained by working for IRS for almost 9 years. They stressed that GAO had required me to accept an $18,459 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes aren’t normally the kind of brands to get caught in the political crosshairs. But in the aftermath of a combustible election, Kellogg cereals and a growing number of consumer brands have suddenly found themselves the unexpected target of boycotts and hot-tempered rhetoric. Kellogg said this week it would pull advertising from Breitbart News, the far-right web site that its critics say trades in racist and sexist content. In response, Breitbart called on readers to boycott the company, devoted a chunk of its front page to stories about Kellogg or the boycott, and sparked a social media outcry. Consumers on both the right and the left piled in, saying they would either stop buying the company’s products — or conversely, stock up on them. The maker of Eggo waffles and Pop-Tarts is only the latest American corporation caught in the crossfire. In the weeks since the election, companies have navigated a sharply politicized environment, one that has entailed calls for boycotts, explosive social media responses to executive comments and thorny interactions between front-line workers and their customers. “I’ve never seen anything like this before, where companies find themselves so open to attack for their points of view or their speech,” said Leslie Gaines-Ross, chief reputation strategist for the public relations firm Weber Shandwick. “Companies are now much more in the fray and seen as political targets.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In late January 2017, when the first of President-elect Donald Trump’s 4,000 political employees report for work, there already will be plenty of angst built up – both by the appointees and by the career civil servants they will oversee.   Thing are going to be different. Many of the appointees will bring different policies and different styles. Most importantly, they will represent a new President who openly and frequently spoke with disdain about the federal workforce and ran on a platform of bringing change. If you’re a senior executive, you want to survive in the new administration and you want your agency to succeed.  But dealing with the arrival of an unknown entity with an unknown agenda can be daunting. Ira Goldstein, a long-time federal executive and consultant, provided some tools for both sides in this new partnership in his recent book The Federal Management Playbook. He offered some practical advice for federal workers – things that can and must be done. To begin with, Goldstein wants to put the federal workforce at ease about dealing with Trump’s declarations about “draining the swamp.” “After 46 years in and around the federal government, I discovered even through there was a lot of publicity around our nation that government doesn’t work well, what you see after a period of time is that many things really do work well. Planes fly safely over our country. Social Security checks get out on time,” Goldstein said in an interview on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin. “Government is important. It’s not going to go away and it’s enormously complex. We’ve got to do better. We need good ‘bureaucrats’ ― skilled, committed, experienced career officials. We also need political direction and oversight, and these days we need competent consultants and contractors.” As a former U.S. assistant comptroller general and chief operating officer of the Government Accountability Office, and founder of Deloitte’s U.S. Federal Practice, Goldstein has seen many transitions. His Playbook hammers home ways and means of working with the incoming transition team “to achieve the effective and efficient execution of public policies that we want and deserve.”)
