— Lisa Madigan still trying to stiff state workers – Editorial (DIERSEN: Since the beginning of time, government employees and government retirees have been hated.  Virtually every individual, virtually every organization, virtually every company, virtually every government, and virtually every country wants to stiff government employees and to stiff government retirees. Those who hate government employees and government retirees just love that.  Overwhelmingly, those who hate government employees and government retirees 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.)

— Older workers feel on track for retirement. Are they? – Paul Davidson
http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2017/01/31/older-workers-feel-track-retirement-they/97162652/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All of that has taken a toll. Twenty-seven percent of the 45- to 65-year-olds surveyed have no retirement savings or investments and another 22% have less than $100,000. About 14% have at least $500,000 and 5% have $1 million or more. By contrast, nearly 50% believe they’ll need at least $500,000 to be comfortable and about a quarter say they’ll need at least $1 million. Rheaume says there’s no one-size-fits-all benchmark for a retirement fund — despite the oft-cited $1 million standard — adding it depends on the retiree’s lifestyle and spending patterns. Still, he says, the number of aging Americans with less than $100,000 “is very concerning.” Not surprisingly, there’s a stark contrast between lower- and higher-income workers. Of those earning $50,000 or more, 84% have retirement savings, compared to 45% of those with lower salaries, the survey shows.)

— Don’t Blame Ivanka and Jared, They Were Observing Shabbat – Margaret Hartmann  (DIERSEN: What do you say to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who demonize me, who denigrate me, and who condemn me for putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out on weekends?)
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/01/ivanka-and-jared-dont-blame-us-we-were-observing-shabbat.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But now sources close to the First Couple, Jr. are claiming that they had nothing to do with the discriminatory travel ban or its chaotic rollout – and they even have an alibi. President Trump announced his executive order minutes before the sun set on Friday night, and Vanity Fair reports that Ivanka and Jared were initially unaware of the uproar because they were observing Shabbat. The couple, who are both orthodox Jews, do not use technology or do work from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday. Kushner is often portrayed as a moderating force, both on his father-in-law and between the different factions in his orbit. One source suggested that’s why both Saturdays of the Trump administration were especially tumultuous. “He wasn’t rolling calls on Saturday when this happened,” a source said of the day after the inauguration. “To me, that’s not a coincidence.”  Sources tell Vanity Fair that Kushner can’t really be blamed for the other six days of the week either, because his influence over his father-in-law is already waning.)

FEDERAL TIMES
— Forget the hiring freeze, OMB plan could alter the workforce – Carten Cordell (DIERSEN: Republicans downsized GAO during all the almost 18 years that I worked for the agency 1980-1997. Because of that, the Democrats who ran the agency focused on wasting the careers of and getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.federaltimes.com/articles/forget-the-hiring-freeze-omb-plan-could-alter-the-workforce
(FROM THE ARTCLE: The more important thing is the Phase 2, which is the creation of the downsizing plan,” said Don Kettl, a professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. “What kind of plan will it be in trying to reduce the size of the federal government through attrition? That really raises two questions: First, does the size of the federal workforce need to be reduced. And the second is, if you are going to reduce it, does it make sense to do it through attrition?” By using attrition as a tool to whittle down the workforce, the Trump administration would be trying to leverage the increasing number of federal employees eligible for retirement to achieve its goals. Some estimates have pegged the eligible number of retirees at 40 percent of the total workforce by 2020, which would accomplish the Trump administration’s goal, but runs the risk leaving a very large skills gap. “The one thing we know about doing it through attrition is that you are never going to end up with the kind of workforce that you need because the people that are leaving aren’t necessarily the jobs you need to replace,” Kettl said. “And the jobs you need to replace aren’t necessarily matched by the people who are leaving.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Police did not give a motive for the attack.  Trump called Trudeau to express condolences to the Canadian people and to offer any assistance that might be needed. The White House pointed to the attack as an example of why Trump’s policies were needed. “We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. It’s a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the president is taking steps to be pro-active, rather than reactive when it comes to our nation’s safety and security,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.)

BOLINGBROOK PATCH
— Group Plans Protest Against Bolingbrook Mayor, Donald Trump  So far 5 people say they plan to protest the grand opening of the Claar/Bolingbrook First campaign headquarters. – Shannon Antinori
http://patch.com/illinois/bolingbrook/group-plans-protest-against-bolingbrook-mayor-donald-trump
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A grassroots group said it’s planning to protest a planned grand opening of the Bolingbrook First campaign headquarters on Monday, Feb. 6. A Facebook group called “Vote Roger Claar Out in 2017” is asking community members to become part of a physical and virtual protest via a “Protest Roger Claar and Donald Trump!” event. According to the event page, the group takes issue with “(Claar’s) high-dollar fundraiser in Bolingbrook for Donald Trump, his never ending support for him” and accuses the mayor of a “long list of questionable decisions for the village.” The long-serving mayor and the Bolingbrook First slate are seeking reelection in April. Candidates are: Claar, currently in his 30th year as mayor  Village Clerk Carol Penning, now in her seventh term  Trustee Mike Lawler, who has served on the board since 1995  Trustee candidate Shelton L. Watts, who was recently sworn in to fill a vacancy on the village board  Trustee Maria A. Zarate, elected in 2013  A grand opening at the Bolingbrook First campaign headquarters, 128 E. Boughton Road, is slated for 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 6. “Bring your friends and family to meet and mingle with the candidates, and feel free to pick up a yard sign while you’re at it,” the Facebook event page for the grand opening said. “We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.” Reached via Facebook, the organizers of the protest said they did wish to be identified, but stated that the page is not run by members of the Bolingbrook First opponents “Bolingbrook United.” “For various reasons we have kept our identities confidential – including to avoid potential targeting from the mayor in retribution for opposing him publicly,” the group told Patch. As of Monday afternoon, 20 people had indicated they are “interested” in the Feb. 6 demonstration while five have marked themselves as “going.”  “It’s also a ‘virtual’ protest,” the group said. “We want not only people to show up in person but if they are unable to do so then to simply mark that they are ‘interested’ in the event.” Claar did not immediately respond to an email from Patch on Monday afternoon. While it denied affiliation with Bolingbrook United, the protest group did say it supports the slate’s mayoral candidate, current Will County board member Jackie Traynere, saying it is looking for a “breath of fresh air.” The group also said it backs the rest of the Bolingbrook United slate of labor attorney Jaime Olson for village clerk and trustee candidates Robert Jaskiewicz, owner of a business lending firm; Mary Helen Reyna, owner of a firm that specializes in immigration law; and Terri Ransom, an IT consultant. “The reality in Bolingbrook is that the same man has been in office for over 30 years and for at least the last 16 years there has been no other candidate’s name on the actual ballot and we desperately need a change,” the group told Patch in an email. “(Claar’s) His failure to distance himself from Trump’s actions over the past few days against Muslims is further evidence of the fact that he’s lost touch with our diverse community.”)

— ‘Open Up Your Homes’ To DREAMers, Says Rahm, Who Will Host In His House – Alex Nitkin  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats treasonously encourage people to come to America illegally, to stay in America illegally, and to bring others to America illegally.)
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20170129/ohare/rahm-emanuel-ohare-protest-trump-executive-order-travel-restrictions
(FROM THE ARTICLE: O’HARE — Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s name evoked boos and hisses from the hundreds of demonstrators outside at O’Hare Airport when a speaker mentioned his name. Few realized he had joined them. The mayor ducked into the airport’s international terminal Sunday, shook hands with volunteer attorneys and called on residents across the city to host refugees and immigrants in their homes as an act of defiance to President Donald Trump’s restrictive executive order. Trump’s order, signed on Friday, suspends all U.S. refugee resettlement for 120 days, bars Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocks travel into the U.S. for 90 days for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It will also stop green card holders from those seven countries from entering the U.S. again if they travel abroad. On Saturday, after more than a thousand protesters marched inside and outside the terminal, Emanuel released a statement saying the travel restrictions had “tarnished America’s standing as a beacon of hope for the free world.” The next evening, he bypassed the crowds and made for the dozens of volunteer lawyers who had set up a makeshift office at a McDonald’s inside the terminal. He huddled and shook hands with organizers, asking which law firms they represented. Some volunteers held up signs in Arabic and Farsi offering counsel to travelers who had been detained, while others huddled around laptops drafting writs of habeas corpus on their behalf. “I want to thank all the lawyers here who are assuring people that when they come, what they’re met with is support, security and safety,” Emanuel said. “That’s who we are, and that is what we’re doing.” Meanwhile, officials from the city’s aviation department, which runs operations at the airport, dropped off a shipment of coffee and pastries for the lawyers. While Emanuel was at the airport, his office released a statement saying he would host immigrants in his home who had been granted legal status under the DREAM Act. Trump has so far laid off the legislation, which outlines a path to citizenship for immigrants who enter the country illegally as young children. “At a moment of unease and vulnerability for so many, let’s come together as a city and put action behind our words and the values we hold dear as a welcoming city,” the statement read. Emanuel and the City Council last week affirmed Chicago’s status as a “sanctuary city,” which bars local law enforcement from helping federal officials identify or deport undocumented immigrants. Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from the city over its status. Here is Emanuel’s statement: “One hundred years ago, the people of Chicago opened their hearts and their homes to my grandfather when he immigrated to this great city, fleeing the pogroms of Eastern Europe in search of freedom and opportunity. In that spirit, in the coming days my family and I will host DREAMers attending Chicago Public Schools and Chicago City Colleges for a meal, a conversation, and a recognition and celebration of all that unites us, rather than what divides us. I am asking every interested resident of the City of Chicago to join us by hosting a similar meal in your own homes and at restaurants in your own neighborhoods, or by sharing welcoming words through a phone call or email. At a moment of unease and vulnerability for so many, let’s come together as a city and put action behind our words and the values we hold dear as a welcoming city. Lets show the world that the City of Big Shoulders is also a city of big hearts.”)

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/27/technology/google-in-post-obama-era-aggressively-woos-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Few companies have been as intimately tied to the Democratic Party in recent years as Google. So now that Donald J. Trump is president, the giant company, in Silicon Valley parlance, is having to pivot. The shift was evident a day after Congress began its new session this month. That evening, about 70 lawmakers, a majority of them Republicans, were feted at the stately Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building, where they clinked champagne and bourbon glasses and posed for selfies with the 600 guests assembled in their honor. The event’s main host was not from the Republican establishment. Instead, the party was primarily financed and anchored by Google. “We’ve partnered with Google on events before, but nothing like this party,” said Alex Skatell, founder of The Independent Journal Review, a news start-up with a right-leaning millennial audience, which also helped host the event. “I’ve never heard of an event as big.”)

NBC5
— Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner Attends Koch Brothers Donor Summit in California – Mary Ann Ahern  (DIERSEN: Rauner should say NO to potential donors who want him to promote mass/illegal immigration, LGBTQ activity, abortion, booze, pot, gambling, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, race based preference giving, gender based preference giving, age discrimination, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, and even worse things.)
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/illinois-governor-bruce-rauner-trump-executive-order-412090203.html
(FROM THE THE ARTICLE: However, the seminar is also considered a chance for 2018 Republican candidates to meet potential donors. Led by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, the Koch network plans to spend up to $400 million on policy and political campaigns during the midterm cycle, according to several reports including from the Washington Post. This weekend marks the largest gathering of potential donors for Koch Industries, with more than 500 people in attendance. Only three governors joined the Palm Springs summit: Rauner, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and Arizona’s Doug Ducey, along with five Republican U.S. senators.)

— Woman impersonated lawmaker’s wife, snuck into GOP retreat – AP  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps, anti-conservatives, and anti-Republicans are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their end.  They are disciples of Saul Alinsky.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-woman-impersonated-lawmakers-wife-gop-retreat-20170128-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A woman impersonated the wife of a GOP lawmaker and snuck into the congressional Republican retreat in Philadelphia Thursday, the same day President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence appeared, retreat organizers told lawmakers late Saturday. The revelation came as the nonprofit Congressional Institute that organizes the retreat investigates how audio of the gathering leaked. In an email to GOP lawmakers, institute president Mark Strand did not directly say that the impersonator was the same person who leaked the audio, but that was the implication. “The Congressional Institute is continuing to investigate this breach in order to fully understand how it happened and to ensure it does not happen again,” said Strand’s email, which was obtained by The Associated Press. The audio was leaked to several news outlets and first reported by The Washington Post. It reveals lawmakers airing concerns about the practical difficulties and political risks of repealing and replacing President Barack Obama’s health care law, among other things. There is also audio of a question-and-answer session with Pence, indicating that the intruder was in the same room as the vice president, which raises security concerns. It was not immediately clear if she was also present for the session with Trump, who spoke before Pence but did not engage in a private discussion with lawmakers. The email says that the unauthorized person “misrepresented herself on multiple occasions to retreat organizers as the spouse of an elected official” and used counterfeit credentials. She went through the same security checkpoints as every other attendee, including magnetometers, and was escorted from the event around 6:30 p.m. Thursday, after Trump and Pence left. The email says officials are working to “ascertain the identity of the woman in question.”  Capitol Police and the Sergeant at Arms are investigating, according to a statement Saturday night from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., who chairs the House GOP conference.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— Rauner contract offer generous – Editorial  (DIERSEN: What major “offers” have you accepted? In 1997, when I was 49 years old, I “accepted” my Democrat GAO superiors’ early retirement “offer.” They made it very clear that if I did not accept their “offer,” constructively, they would kill me. Of course, since 1997, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have shouted that the “offer” was far too generous – in today’s dollars, $50,856 Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension and $17,288 health/dental/vision insurance subsidy for life. In my defense, I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $94,610-$122,991, and I paid 7% of my salary into the CSRS. In addition, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 33.)

— INSTEAD OF TAX HIKES, REFORM HIGHER EDUCATION TO PRIORITIZE STUDENTS OVER ADMINISTRATORS  Illinois spends more money on retirement costs than on university operations – and tuition keeps rising to prop up this overspending. Instead of hiking taxes to maintain current spending habits in higher education, politicians should shift priorities from propping up six-figure administrators to keeping tuition affordable for students. – Joe Kaiser

WASHINGTON POST
— In unprecedented move, pension plan cuts benefits promised to retirees – Jonnelle Marte  (DIERSEN: If you are in line to get a pension or if you are getting a pension, who wants your pension to be cut, if not eliminated? I should write a book about those who want my $50,856 Civil Service Retirement System pension to be cut, if not eliminated. I could focus on those who are full of hatred against those who are in line to get a pension and against those like me who are getting a pension.  I could focus on the aforesaid haters who regularly read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/get-there/wp/2017/01/27/in-unprecedented-move-pension-plan-approves-benefit-cuts-for-retired-iron-workers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A pension fund in Cleveland became the first plan to approve benefit cuts for current retirees — even though it is still years away from running out of cash. The move, some critics say, could open the door for other troubled pension plans to follow suit. The financially strapped Iron Workers Local 17 Pension fund proposed a plan for extending its life span by reducing benefits for workers and retirees. Now that the plan has received final approval, roughly half of the 2,000 participants will see their pension benefits shrink on Feb. 1. Benefits will be cut by 20 percent on average, but some retirees are expecting their monthly payments to be slashed by as much as 60 percent. The unprecedented move comes after a 2014 law made it possible for troubled pension plans to reduce benefits to retirees if it would improve the financial health of the fund. The legislation dealt a major blow to federal protections that for nearly 40 years guarded the financial promises made to retirees. The announcement stunned some former ironworkers, many of whom said they sacrificed time with family and other opportunities so that they could earn a secure income stream in retirement. Joe Finley, 63, said he regularly worked 12 hours a day and took weekend shifts so that he could earn more credits for his pension. Now, his monthly check is set to be reduced to $1,900, from the roughly $3,500 he was previously receiving. The lost income is about equal to his monthly mortgage payment, causing Finley to worry that he may have to put his three-bedroom home on the market. “This is the devastation that I knew was coming, but I just couldn’t wrap my mind around it,” Finley said after learning the news. “You play by all the rules … and then they pull the rug out from under you.” The fund’s proposal was first green-lighted by the Treasury Department late last year before being put up for a vote by members this month. The impact will vary based on the individual’s work status and age. About half of the participants are not going to see any cuts at all because of their age or a disability. Others will see minor reductions. But more than 300 participants will see their checks cut by between 30 and 60 percent. Some people who took advantage of an early retirement option are among those facing the steepest cuts. Some critics say the divide in outcomes may have ultimately pinned workers, who could have felt they were choosing between a smaller pension and no pension at all, against retirees who feel they have few options for making up the lost pay. More than half of the 1,938 people eligible to vote did not cast a vote. About 16 percent, or 300, voted against the cuts. Another 600 members voted in favor of the changes. “I’ve been sort of sitting here staring off in the distance,” said Larry Burruel, 68, who is expecting his pension check to be cut in half. “We’re going to have to make a lot of cuts,” said Burruel, who is worried he and his wife will struggle to afford their medical bills with the smaller paycheck. The leaders of the ironworkers fund said making cuts now could prevent the need for more dramatic reductions in the future. Without changes, the ironworkers fund was on pace to run out of cash by 2024. At that point, the plan would have had to rely on the federal insurance program meant to protect multiemployer plans. But that program is also facing steep shortfalls and is on track to run out of money by 2025. “The suspension plan, while reducing their pensions now, is a better alternative than letting the pension fund become insolvent,” the trustees of the fund said in a statement. The ironworkers make up only a small portion of the roughly 1 million workers and retirees in pension plans that are on track to exhaust funds within the next two decades, according to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, which insures private pensions. The Central States Pension Fund, one of the largest multiemployer pension plans in the country, became the first fund to apply to cut benefits under the law with a proposal that would have affected nearly 300,000 current and retired truckers. But Treasury rejected that application in the spring, saying the changes would not be enough to save the financially struggling fund. Some pension advocates said they worry that the approval of the cuts in Cleveland could open the door for other financially struggling pension plans to follow suit. “Retirees … performed dangerous work counting on the promise of their pensions,” said Karen Ferguson, director of the Pension Rights Center. “It is simply wrong that after their years of backbreaking work, they have been left out in the cold.” Ferguson and other consumer advocates argue that rejecting the cuts would have given lawmakers more time to come up with another plan for shoring up pension funds. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), who is critical of the cuts, called on Congress to find a long-term fix. “Too many retirees across Ohio face uncertainty over the benefits they’ve earned,” he said. “We need to work on a bipartisan solution to protect Ohio workers from the mistakes made by those managing their funds.”)

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170127/news/170128917/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The attorney representing petitioners who want to merge Lisle, Warrenville and Woodridge with Naperville says the initiative is all about money. Annexing the smaller communities to Naperville would allow the larger city to use economies of scale to reduce the property tax burden on residents, Frank Avila said. The Chicago attorney said he still “is not authorized” to say who is behind the merger push. “This is about making life more affordable,” Avila said. But mayors of the four communities say talk of lowering taxes is “smoke and mirrors” and those behind the proposal have a political motive, especially because of the “clandestine and haphazard” way the idea has come to the fore. “People with serious issues bring it forward in a little more responsible manner, and this certainly was not done in a responsible manner,” Warrenville Mayor David Brummel said. “I just don’t think it’s all about taxes.”)

http://www.wjbdradio.com/politics/2017/01/27/trump-pushes-voter-fraud-claim-citing-fringe-blogger
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump cited a new study Thursday to back up his claim that millions of ballots were cast illegally in the 2016 election – this one from a widely discredited blogger who has thus far declined to provide any evidence. The president’s latest source: 56-year old Gregg Phillips of Austin, Texas, a man who has been roundly criticized by mainstream academics and political opponents as a conspiracy theorist. His critics note that Phillips has claimed the Obama Department of Homeland Security hacked the election. Asked by ABC News if he had evidence to support his claim that millions of people voted illegally, Phillips demurred, saying he “is building that case right now.” “I may be a whacko, I may be a nut, I don’t know, I don’t really care what they say about me,” he said. Trump thought enough of Phillips’s theory that he cited it on Twitter. “Gregg Phillips and crew say at least 3,000,000 votes were illegal. We must do better!” he tweeted on Friday morning. To Phillips, who has argued that a recent tax lien against him is the product of political persecution by the IRS, the presidential attention came as a shock. “That was a little unexpected,” Phillips said of the Trump tweet. “What are you going to say? I mean, I’m just a regular guy and all of a sudden the President tweets my name and my whole world lit up for a little while today.” . . . On Thursday, Trump made Phillips the newest expert to bolster his voter fraud claims.)

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/obama-gave-foreign-students-180000-u.s.-jobs-32b-in-lost-wages/article/2613146
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A pro-immigrant program was expanded under President Obama that paid U.S. firms $2.7 billion to hire 180,000 foreign “students,” jobs that likely otherwise would have gone to Americans, according to a new report. The so-called “Optional Practical Training” was supposedly set up for foreign students but actually included no training and put college graduates in the high-paying jobs for three years. The Center for Immigration Studies, which on Friday urged President Trump to stop the program, estimated that the jobs paid $60,000, suggesting a total of $11 billion in annual wages lost to American workers, over $32 billion over three years. In his Inaugural Address, Trump advocated an “America First” theme. The Center said the program, also used under former President George W. Bush, paid companies $10,000-$15,000 to hire the foreigner college grads for three years.)

Congress Is.  While we wait for a GOP mutiny, they keep giving their useful idiot just enough rope to hang himself. – Misha Pinkhasov  (DIERSEN: Who considers you to be one of their useful idiots?  Should I write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who consider me to be one of their useful idiots?  They stress that I send them GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails free of charge and without any advertising.  They stress that I include links to their articles in the emails.  They stress that I promote their events.  They stress that I attend their events.  They stress that I report on their events.  While all that time, they are doing everything that they can to destroy me and to destroy my supporters.  Again, I should write a book about my those who consider me to be one of their useful idiots?)

— After not voting for Michael J. Madigan for Speaker of the House, this is what has happened: I did not receive a committee chairmanship;

The message: “Represent the public at your own risk.” (DIERSEN: Generally, those with lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout punish those who do not pander to them, those who do not serve as one of their operatives, those who do not serve as one of their dupes, and/or those who do not give them money.  Who gets punished in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county?)

Smith  (DIERSEN: All during the almost 30 years that I worked for the federal government, I blew the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.  In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.  My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated by forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, by not promoting me beyond GS-13, by keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and by forcing me to take an $18,847 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 to resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.  If I had not blown any whistles, the federal government would have promoted me into its Senior Executive Service long before I was 40 years old.)
