CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS

— Romney coming to raise cash for Bob Dold – GREG HINZ  (DIERSEN: If you ask a Trump-hater to raise cash for you, you shout that you are a Trump-hater.  Trump-haters are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)

— Closing Chicago’s inequality gap one business at a time – JESSICA DROSTE YAGAN  (DIERSEN: Yagan should stress the federal government.  Since the 1960s, the federal government’s top priority in Chicago has been a) to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and b) to make way for them by wasting the careers of and by getting rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160930/OPINION/160929765
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago is a city of extremes. It gets very hot and very cold. We have some of the most generous and kind people I know, yet violence is exploding across the city. The tech sector is booming, yet entire swaths of the city have seen little to no new opportunities. Dependent largely upon our skin color and ZIP code—which are inextricably related—Chicagoans are either gaining in educational attainment and benefiting from rising property values and increasing income or they are experiencing the opposite. Make no mistake, the status quo costs us all: Nations with greater inequality tend to have fewer periods of sustained economic growth. Is it a coincidence that Chicago ranks in the bottom third of the world’s largest economies for GDP growth and employment? I have a bias toward optimism and action. Yes, we have problems with racism and inequality. Yes, we have an epidemic of violence. But what can those of us in the business community do about it? One obvious answer lies in jobs.)

THE HILL
— GOP bill proposes freeze on U.S. naturalizations – Cristina Marcos
http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/298588-gop-bill-proposes-freeze-on-granting-immigrants-citizenship
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A House Republican introduced legislation to prevent the U.S. government from granting immigrants citizenship, responding to a report found that several hundred people slated for deportation were accidentally naturalized. The bill, offered by Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) before Congress departed this week for its pre-election recess, would halt any new naturalizations until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) finishes modernizing its fingerprint record database. A DHS inspector general report made public this month stated that at least 858 people ordered to be deported were mistakenly granted citizenship because their digital fingerprint records weren’t in DHS or FBI databases. Some paper-based fingerprint records weren’t consistently converted into digital form.)

DAILY HERALD
— DuPage Election Commission wants its lawyers to be less political – Robert Sanchez
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160929/news/160928558/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Attorneys representing the DuPage County Election Commission might have to say “no” the next time a candidate asks them for a campaign contribution. The board that oversees the commission is working to establish a policy that would prohibit the agency’s attorneys from engaging in certain political activity “on behalf of any candidate under the jurisdiction” of the commission. According to a draft of the document, the proposed policy is intended to assure the public that the results of elections in DuPage “are free from any factors which would affect the integrity of the vote tabulation or the voter confidence in the electoral process.” The move comes after officials learned that Bond, Dickson & Associates — a Wheaton law firm that represents the election commission — has donated more than $6,300 since 2003 to Republican Recorder Fred Bucholz.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— JOSHUA NAPONIELLO: MY DAY WITH DONALD TRUMP IN BOLINGBROOK  (DIERSEN: Those who spoke very highly of Trump at this outstanding event included Roger Claar and Rudy Giuliani.  The 300+ attendees included John Cabello, Brad Cole, Dan Cronin, Demetra DeMonte, Kirk Dillard, Ron Gidwitz, Dan Hampton, David MacNeil, Richard Porter, Todd Ricketts, Skip Saviano, Tim Schneider, Mickey Straub, and Dave Tornga.)
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2016/09/naponiello-my-day-with-donald-trump-in-bolingbrook.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How crazy is it that I ended up volunteering for perhaps the next president of the United States?  I mean you would have thought that by talking to Roger Claar the Mayor of Bolingbrook, I would volunteer at a Trump fundraiser! I can only say it was the best event that I have worked on in my early political life. Setting up tables was a challenge but greeting people by the door was amazing. Friendly faces, attitudes, familiar faces like (former State Senator) Kirk Dillard, (Bolingbrook Mayor) Roger Claar and (Chicago Cubs’ owner) Todd Ricketts.  I also had the pleasure of sitting next to (former New York City Mayor) Rudy Giuliani during the lunch. The speech that Trump delivered was electrifying. Reducing regulations, repealing Obamacare, and lowering taxes on the middle class. Straight to the point concise, was how his speech was, and everyone stood and applauded our future president of the United States. Unfortunately, there was a negative point, as I was called traitor and fake by Mexican protesters against Trump, yet I kept my smile and head straight up and continued to help Trump. After the event I traveled outside to see Trump supporters waving American flags and chanting “USA,USA,USA”. I got to talk to some of the Trump supporters and we discussed Trump at the first debate. Another highlight was being quoted in a Chicago Tribune story, link here https://www.google.com/amp/www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/bolingbrook-plainfield/news/ct-nvs-trump-bolingbrook-st-0929-20160928-story,amp.html  Otherwise I had a great time and learned from Trump what it means to be a leader. Joshua Naponiello is a 19 year old student at College of DuPage.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

— Just say no to Narcan? Heroin rescue efforts draw backlash – AP  (DIERSEN: Untended consequences SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unintended_consequences  “In the social sciences, unintended consequences (sometimes unanticipated consequences or unforeseen consequences) are outcomes that are not the ones foreseen and intended by a purposeful action.”)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-bc-us–heroin-overdoses-backlash-20160925-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First responders in U.S. communities reeling from waves of heroin overdoses say some people tell them they should just say no to using so many resources on drug abusers. Authorities say people have expressed frustration about rescuing addicts who often immediately resume using the potentially deadly drug. There are also concerns voiced about the wide-ranging social and government budget costs involved, including for the overdose antidote naloxone. Some signs of heroin overdose backlash: — Gov. Paul LePage in hard-hit Maine vetoed legislation this year to expand access to naloxone, usually under the brand name Narcan. He has explained that when people are receiving a dozen or more doses, they should start having to pay for it. The Legislature overrode his veto. — An effort by authorities in Ohio’s Hamilton County to get a dangerous heroin batch off the streets by offering immunity for people who turn in drugs drew a rebuke from Sheriff Richard Jones in neighboring Butler County, who argued it only enables dealers and users and gives them an excuse if they are caught. — A police photo of a grandmother and her boyfriend unconscious after overdosing with a 4-year-old boy in their car went viral this month after the police department in Ohio’s East Liverpool posted it on Facebook, drawing thousands of comments including from people decrying lenience toward users who endanger children or steal to support their habits. — A retired attorney wrote an op-ed column in The Cincinnati Enquirer examining the costs of treating heroin addiction, the strain on public resources and the rise in “drugged driving” accidents as he urged aggressive punishment. “What social policy is advanced by subsidizing recklessness?” John M. Kunst Jr., of suburban Cincinnati, wrote earlier this year. “Why do we excuse and enable addiction?” “I understand the frustration,” said Police Chief Thomas Synan Jr. of Newtown, Ohio, who heads a Cincinnati-area heroin coalition task force. “I understand the feeling that someone is doing something to themselves, so why do the rest of us have to pay? But our job is to save lives, period.”)

No one else provides an email service that even comes close to what Diersen does.)
https://medium.com/@savethechicagoreader/help-us-win-the-fight-for-the-reader-its-bold-writing-must-be-saved-346102289da2#.5t2605vze
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As much as I may not like to admit it, I’m the old guy on the Reader staff. And so I’m writing on behalf of all the employees in our guild bargaining unit. My first Reader story – a freelanced restaurant review – ran in 1977, before many of my current colleagues were even born. I started covering politics for the paper in 1984. I’ve been a staff writer since 1990. That’s long enough for me to have learned a thing or two about what makes this paper so great. Yes, the Reader runs provocative theater, music, film, and food criticism, but just as important, its editors give writers the freedom to tell it like it is, even if we irritate the hell out of the powers that be.)

— Federal Workforce: Lessons Learned for Engaging Millennials and Other Age Groups (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my Democrat superiors focused on a) hiring, retaining, and promoting young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females and b) making way for them by getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.gao.gov/products/GAO-16-880T
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With more than 30% of federal employees eligible to retire by 2019, a lot of jobs could open up that the current federal workforce can’t fill. So, the government needs to recruit and retain the next generation of workers. Strong employee engagement—a positive feeling about one’s employer and its mission—tends to help agencies hire and keep employees. You might think that millennials are less engaged than other age groups, but the data in this testimony showed that engagement doesn’t vary much by age. Engagement increases for everyone when agencies demonstrate that they value their employees.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Trump opponents, supporters clash outside Bolingbrook fundraiser – Frank Vaisvilas and Alicia Fabbre (DIERSEN: Those who spoke very highly of Trump at this outstanding event included Roger Claar and Rudy Giuliani.  The 300+ attendees included John Cabello, Brad Cole, Dan Cronin, Demetra DeMonte, Kirk Dillard, Ron Gidwitz, Dan Hampton, David MacNeil, Richard Porter, Todd Ricketts, Skip Saviano, Tim Schneider, Mickey Straub, and Dave Tornga.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/bolingbrook-plainfield/news/ct-nvs-trump-bolingbrook-st-0929-20160928-story.html
(FROM AN EARLIER VERSION OF THE ARTICLE: David John Diersen, editor for gopillinois.com, said Rudy Giuliani made a surprise appearance.  He said Trump made many jokes and his winning Illinois is “in the realm of possibilities.” Attendee Joshua Naponiello, who’s a volunteer with the DuPage County GOP, said Trump gave a speech with talking points that included reducing regulation, reducing taxes for businesses and the middle class and repealing Obamacare. He said one of Trump’s guests included a representative of the Pakistani Islamic community and an Islamic prayer was given and everyone prayed along. Some of Trump’s supporters also showed up early, including Garry Slabaugh of Romeoville. He said he is excited the candidate he supported since the beginning of the primaries was virtually in his backyard. “I heard about (the fundraiser) last night, and I could hardly sleep,” Slabaugh said. “My wife wishes she was off today so she could be here.” He said he and his wife attended the Trump rally at UIC on March 11 that was canceled amid security concerns. “People were pounding our van and called us racist and they didn’t even know us,” Slabaugh said. “I hope it’s not like that today.” He said he’s not a racist and supports Trump because “he’s tells the truth.” “I don’t like the way things are going,” Slabaugh said. “I don’t want more of the same.” Police staged all demonstrators, supporters and media in a field across the street from the clubhouse not allowing anyone uninvited into the private event in which donors paid up to $250,000.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Trump pumps up the room in Bolingbrook fundraiser – Michael Sneed
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/sneed-trump-pumps-up-the-room-in-bolingbrook-fundraiser/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hey! Hey!  It was a Trump love fest. Pull up a luncheon chair. Donald Trump, who has dinged Chicago for our murder rate, denounced the Cubs last year for being poorly run by owners who opposed his campaign, and expressed concern for the Chicago Bears going forward — was all banter, burble and bubble at a private luncheon in Bolingbrook on Wednesday. “I love Chicago. I am an investor here. It’s a great city,” chirped Trump, who left the Bolingbrook Golf Club fund-raiser organized by savvy Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar with $1.5 million bucks in his political pocket. “It was a huge blowout,” a luncheon source said. Trump, who took no questions from the 350 plus donors dining on cold salmon salad and Claar’s favorite yellow pudding, played it mellow while pitching podium bon mots to the audience in the Ronald Reagan room. Todd Ricketts, a co-owner of the Cubs who is CEO of the conservative Ending Spending Super PAC, was in attendance. In a shout-out to Ricketts, Trump yelled: “I want to commend the Ricketts family on their business plan and how they rebuilt the Chicago Cubs in a few short years!”  Ricketts shouted back:” It’s gonna be a great year because YOU are going to win the presidency AND THE CUBS ARE GOING TO WIN THE WORLD SERIES!”  (Trump’s praise for the Cubs followed disclosures Wednesday morning Joe Ricketts was doing a turnaround, endorsing Trump and donating $1 million to elect him.) The room erupted into applause. Trump was now on a roll. Tossing a huge shoutout to retired Hall of Fame football defensive tackle Dan Hampton, whom he mistakenly called “Dave,” Trump praised Hampton and asked him to join him on stage. “My daughter Ivanka always reminds me I am a BIG guy,” said Trump, who reportedly weighs 267 pounds. “So I just want to show my children there are guys bigger than me. And I want you to tell coach [Mike] Ditka how much I love the guy and appreciate his support and friendship.”  Then Trump told Hampton he “wished you’d suit up because the Bears need you.”  Trump also volunteered to lend Hampton his knees. “I have great knees and if you want to borrow them. I’d be more than happy to do so,” Trump said. Trump then gave a big shout-out to WeatherTech CEO David MacNeil, commending him for manufacturing his product in America. MacNeil shouted back: “And I employ 1,100 people here in Bolingbrook.” Trump, however, saved the knife for Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, who has refused to endorse Trump. The source claimed Trump stated: “It is one thing not to endorse me, but it another thing to use me in ads for yourself against me. Guys like Kirk who are behind in the polls can’t figure out why guys like me are ahead in the polls.” Trump, who told the crowd his campaign raised $18 million since his televised debate two days ago, singled Kirk out several times for disdain, the source added. Trump also praised Claar, who organized the event. Overseeing a diverse community, Claar’s event had a Muslim deliver the invocation, an African-American as master of ceremonies, and an African-American woman sing the national anthem, according to the source.)

  1. LOUIS TODAY
    — Do whites and men have too much power? – Scott Clement and Emily Guskin  (DIERSEN: How much power do you have?  Power is religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)
    http://www.stltoday.com/news/national/govt-and-politics/do-whites-and-men-have-too-much-power/article_a343bfc0-b572-5f66-90f1-215d5820e7dc.html
    (FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s no secret that race and gender issues have been front-and-center in this year’s presidential contest, and a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shines a new light on a central part of this dynamic: views of the power of whites and men. White men fueled Trump’s overall support in the poll, with likely voters in this demographic favoring him by a whopping 40-point margin, compared with a nearly tied contest among white women (46-44) and Clinton’s 50-point lead among all non-white voters (69-19). The Post-ABC poll also asked whether men, women, whites and racial and ethnic minorities have “too much,” “too little” or “about the right amount” of influence in the country. Just more than four in 10 registered voters say each of women and minorities have too little influence, while far fewer say either has too much sway. Looking at whites and men, nearly four in 10 voters say men have too much influence in the country, while one-third says the same about whites. Putting those questions together, voters split evenly, with 48 percent saying whites or men have too much influence, while 48 percent say neither group does. The Post-ABC poll found responses to this question are closely connected with support for Clinton and Trump. Trump’s support is 36 points higher among voters who say whites have “about the right amount” or “too little” influence in America, compared with those who say whites have too much influence (53 percent to 17 percent). Trump’s support is also 27 percentage points higher among voters who reject the idea that men have “too much” influence, compared with those who do. Put together, Trump leads Clinton by a 57-28 margin among voters who say neither whites nor men have too much influence, while he trails Clinton by 52 points among voters who say both whites and men have too much influence (14-66). Fascinatingly, the impact of these attitudes is largest among voters who belong to the two historically advantaged demographics. Whites voters who say their racial group has too much influence prefer Clinton by a 38-point margin over Trump (61-23), while those who say their influence is about right or insufficient favor Trump by a 40-point margin (63-23). Likewise, male voters who say men are too influential favor Clinton by 25 points (52-27) while those who feel men are not too powerful prefer Trump by a 44-point margin (59-25). Political divisions over gender and race are far from new, and the poll also finds big partisan splits on these questions – an indication that they predate Clinton and Trump’s candidacies. Democrats are about twice as likely to say men have too much influence as Republicans and three times as likely to say whites have too much sway. But it is also likely that heated rhetoric over police shootings of black men, racism, sexism and immigration have helped solidify partisan divisions on issues of race and gender.)

THE HILL
— Lawmakers, tech talk diversity – Ali Breland and David McCabe  (DIERSEN: To promote diversity is to get rid of those who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://origin-nyi.thehill.com/policy/technology/overnights/298165-overnight-tech-tech-comes-to-the-hill-to-talk-diversity-ftc
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shiu called for more power and resources for her office to be able to better handle workplace equity issues.
“What is required to address this issue is more resources for the agency. What is required is that every contractor has to file its affirmative action plan so we don’t get the plans just when we come knocking. What is required is that the OFCCP has the subpoena authority that the [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] has,” Shiu said. The panel’s talk also focused on specific government agencies as well as the general ethos in tech that critics say contributes to the lack of workplace diversity. The panel members said the lack of diversity made it harder for tech companies to spot and fix certain problems. “I felt there was a cultural problem at Airbnb,” said Laura Murphy, a senior adviser at the company. “Three young, white guys, who founded the company 8 years ago now run a company that’s valued at $30 billion. Doing that in 8 years, they grew very fast. They didn’t change their social networks in the process of growing. We live in a very segregated society. When issues of segregation came up they were turning to each other, which wasn’t the most effective option.”)

 

HUFFINGTON POST

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-baltimore-gazette_us_57eb1f47e4b024a52d2b71e6
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But not so fast! Donald Trump has a media coup of his own to brag about. Seems that some eagle-eyed investigative reporters at the Baltimore Gazette have brought home a dilly of a scoop: “Multiple reports and leaked information from inside the Clinton camp claim that the Clinton campaign was given the entire set of debate questions an entire week before the actual debate.” . . . The Baltimore Gazette, a newspaper that existed very briefly just after the Civil War, has returned online as a site to spread fake news stories and other nonsense. . . Yes, turns out the Baltimore Gazette is just one more in an increasingly baffling array of “parody” news sites that swap the humor of The Onion with the crackpottery of your great-uncle’s emails, all while dressing up their wares with as close an approximation to real news as they can muster. (Weigel reports that the “Gazette” does salt its bogus offerings with occasional stories that are on the level ― and stolen from other sources.))

http://www.wsj.com/articles/how-men-women-see-the-workplace-differently-1474970085
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Men and women go to the same business meetings, have the same colleagues, strive for the same jobs up the ladder. Yet a major new study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Co. shows that men still get more promotions, more challenging assignments and more access to top leaders. And while growing numbers of women are negotiating for raises and promotions, they also face pushback when they do. A Journal Report looks at the different worlds that men and women inhabit at work—and what can be done to make them more equal.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-sanders-clinton-college-plan-20160925-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vt., plans to join Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week at an event in New Hampshire where they will pitch a joint plan to make college more affordable — part of a continuing effort to sell the party’s ticket to wary millennials. Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primaries, consistently outperformed Clinton among young voters. As he prepared to exit the race in July, he worked with Clinton to incorporate parts of his college plan into hers. The result is a proposal to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families with income up to $125,000 a year and to make the college years debt-free for everyone.)
