CAPITOL FAX
— Republicans file TRUST Act repeal bills while Rauner dodges questions
https://capitolfax.com/2017/08/31/republicans-file-trust-act-repeal-bills-while-rauner-dodges-questions/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Those aren’t going anywhere, of course, but filing legislation does make them look good to their constituencies. Gov. Rauner was asked about GOP legislator criticism about the TRUST Act yesterday, but he refused to answer because, Rauner said, it was an “off-topic” question and he was only taking questions about the school funding bill… (VIDEO) Less than a minute later, however, the governor answered a different off-topic question.)

— Get ready for another intra-party rumble
https://capitolfax.com/2017/08/31/get-ready-for-another-intra-party-rumble/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’ve heard the $30 million number, too. Heaven help the governor, because the US Attorney won’t, if there was even an “understanding” that the initial round of staff firings was in any way tied to a $30 million campaign contribution. Also, Proft called House GOP Leader Jim Durkin a “pansy” on his radio show yesterday. So, things aren’t going well.)

 

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Rauner pivots to center as romance with right wing cools – GREG HINZ  (DIERSEN: Those in the “center” of the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) have always focused on driving out of the party those like me who support the IRP platform, that is, they have always focused on destroying the IRP. Especially since 2000, they have had great success in destroying the IRP. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend their platform. Most commonly, those in the “center” are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, and Green plants. Most commonly, they reject the traditional family, right to life, and immigration planks in the IRP platform. Most commonly, they promote LGBTQ activity, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices. In Illinois, if you got elected or appointed to a government office or to a political office as a Republican, if you have not, and/or, if you will not defend and advance the IRP platform, you should immediately resign.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170831/BLOGS02/170839974/rauner-pivots-to-center-as-romance-with-right-wing-cools
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Things could heat up even more if Rauner signs a pending bill to guarantee abortion coverage for women on Medicaid and state employees. Doing so might infuriate much of the political right, but that didn’t stop the governor from recently signing an almost-as-controversial “motor voter” registration measure and a bill limiting the ability of local police to arrest immigrants who are in the country illegally. . .Such events sparked personal complaints to Rauner from Jim Durkin and Bill Brady, the GOP leaders of the Illinois House and Senate. In a meeting with him on Aug. 23, both complained about attacks on their members and asked him to step in, four sources close to the matter tell me. Durkin and Brady’s spokeswomen declined to comment on what they categorized as a private meeting. But in the wake of that get-together, the Proft group moved to run its own legislative operation without Rauner, sources close to the matter tell me. And Rauner began veering to the left on key legislative matters, notably praising the schools bill that he’s spent a month ripping as a “bailout” of Chicago Public Schools. Another source tells me some of the conservatives met a few days ago with Diana Rauner, the governor’s wife, in what is described as a “very difficult” session. At the moment, Rauner has no known opponent in the GOP primary. But this nasty divorce could play out in unexpected ways. One veteran GOP operative says it’s not quite clear who’s doing what. But other outside political consultants brought in by Rauner when Zolnierowicz left likely have told him that, in Democratic-leaning Illinois, it’s smarter to act like former GOP Gov. Jim Thompson and Jim Edgar. Rauner himself may not know. But continue to look for more rolling-pin-wielding in his bumpy marriage with the GOP’s hard right.)

DAILY HERALD
— Employers: Learn how to ease stress in workplace at Aurora seminar – John Russell  (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates did everything that they could to cause me stress. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, 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. Were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and e) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— OUTSTANDING: UPDATE: NOW FOUR (Davidsmeyer, Reis, Cabello, and McSweeney) IL GOP LAWMAKERS FILE EFFORT TO REPEAL SANCTUARY LAW
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/two-il-gop-lawmakers-file-effort-to-repeal-sanctuary-law.html
— ILLINOIS: WORTH FIGHTING FOR?
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/illinois-worth-fighting-for-.html
— Carl Segvich Comment
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/il-gop-warns-not-to-believe-misinformation-circulating-about-immigration-law.html
(THE COMMENT: Repute REPUGNANT “republican” Rauner as a DOUBLE AGENT Political Miasma The Republican Party of the 11th Ward of Chicago repudiates Bruce Rauner as a Democratic Party shill. RAUNER IS AN INFILTRATOR, a party-crasher working for the Democratic Party. The Democrat Party employs this Machiavellian strategy for decades. It is not just because he signed the Trust bill (SB31). He also promotes Islam over Christianity regarding advisers in Springfield. He is pro abortion. He also signed The Automatic Voter Registration Law, which makes our government automatically register anyone who updates their drivers license or state ID, as a voter. Bruce who amongst many lies, also said he wasn’t going to be involved in social issues, supports the deranged concept of “homosexual marriage”. Furthermore, public record shows that Bruce has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to several liberal Democrats such as Richard M. Daley, Ed Rendell, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. He is married to a liberal female who worked for Barack Obama, and brags that she and her husband Bruce are social justice warriors. The Republican Party of the shamelessly and notoriously corrupt 11th Ward of Chicago declares Bruce Rauner as a political cancer that has metastasized from Chicago throughout our United States of America, via the political schooling of the massively corrupt Daley family. Of course, this is all with nefarious collaboration of the Chicago press. Our United States of America is in her second civil war, although it is rather silent; Liberals are annihilating us Conservatives. We despise Bruce Rauner as repugnant and everything that is wrong with USA, politically. TRUST us. Carl Segvich – 11th Ward Republican Party Committeeman, Chicago)
— John F. Di Leo Comment
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/il-gop-warns-not-to-believe-misinformation-circulating-about-immigration-law.html
(THE COMMENT: We need a real conservative Republican candidate for Governor in this primary. One with some kind of elective office experience, as a decent size city mayor, or as a county chairman or sheriff, something like that, if we don’t have a good congressman or state legislator to run. Rauner will be defeated next November if he gets the nomination. This is just a fact, not just a wish. He maintained the tolerance of the GOP base until this summer, but his several capitulations this summer have killed whatever good will he had built up in the GOP. There is no reason for us to be enthused with him next November, so he cannot win. The GOP needs to recognize what it failed to recognize with the Mark Kirk seat in 2016 and the Percy seat in 1984: sometimes a candidate is lost before the election even arrives, so your best bet is to find some good new blood to run in the primary. We should’ve run Corcoran in 1984. We should’ve run Jack Ryan in 2004. We should’ve run James Marter in 2016 (or found a county chairman or sheriff to run instead)…Our only hope of saving the executive mansion – for this critical term that contains the next redistricting map – is if someone other than Bruce Rauner is the GOP nominee.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— A Clear Reading of SB 31 Reveals Illinois is Now a Sanctuary State – John Biver
https://illinoisfamily.org/politics/clear-reading-sb-31-reveals-illinois-now-sanctuary-state/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It is not difficult to understand the long-running dream of Leftists to import more future Democratic Party voters from other countries. Some of their most loyal supporters will be those who broke federal law to come here and were then protected by the Democratic Party. Leftists are talented when it comes to the strategic manipulation of language. Just as centuries-old mainline Christian doctrine is now referred to as “hate,” illegal aliens are referred to as “undocumented immigrants.” Tolerance now means intolerance. The “Affordable Care Act” made health insurance unaffordable for millions of Americans. The “Trust Act” means you can trust that we don’t care if you’re here illegally. As “blue” as Illinois is, Democratic Party leaders and their supporters know that even here you must be careful with language. And if you alter SB 31 enough, you can even deny it’s a sanctuary bill. Some people are upset that the ruse didn’t work.)

Of the 200 graduates, 100 responded to the event questionnaire, 67 attended one or more of three weekend events, and 31 spouses/guests attended one or more of the events.

AMERICAN THINKER
— Media and the Politics of Misdirection – Jack Hellner
http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/08/media_and_the_politics_of_misdirection.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On a side note: As an Illinois resident, I am so proud to have a pretend-Republican governor who believes being a sanctuary state is the way to go. As Illinois chases away taxpayers and businesses with higher taxes, he welcomes in more illegal immigrants. That will obviously help Illinois. Our politicians are so brilliant in Illinois that we have a 16% maximum estate tax while many states have zero. It seems to be above the comprehension of Madigan and others to understand why the wealthy move away or won’t come to spend and invest their money here. It is such a tough concept to understand.

If I had been a veteran, my Democrat GAO superiors would NOT have forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, would NOT have always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, would have promoted me beyond GS-13, would NOT have kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and would NOT have forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  If I had been a veteran, my Democrat IRS superiors would have promoted me beyond GS-12, they would NOT have disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and they would NOT have disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. If I had been a veteran, my Democrat Post Office superiors would NOT have forced me resign in 1969 and they would NOT have disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— OUTSTANDING: TWO IL GOP LAWMAKERS (John Cabello and David McSweeney) FILE EFFORT TO REPEAL SANCTUARY LAW
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/two-il-gop-lawmakers-file-effort-to-repeal-sanctuary-law.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE:  Two Illinois Republican state reps are very concerned about the immigration law enforcement measure Illinois Republican Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law Monday. State Reps. John Cabello (R-Rockford) and David McSweeney (R-Barrington) filed a measure Wednesday that would repeal a new law banning law enforcement in Illinois from stopping persons suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. “I swore to uphold the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions when I became a legislator,” Cabello told Illinois Review Wednesday. “As a member of law enforcement, I took a vow to uphold the law. I believe and trust in those oaths, and intend to do all I can to keep them.” The law many are referring to as the “sanctuary law” says law enforcement “shall not” detain or continue to detain any individual solely on the basis of any immigration detainer or non-judicial immigration warrant. Law enforcement “shall not” stop or arrest anyone solely based on the person’s immigration or citizenship status. They are, however, not banned from implementing a “valid” judge-issued federal warrant concerning any suspects. That is the definition of a sanctuary law, Cabello bill co-sponsor David McSweeney told Illinois Review. He pointed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ office comments on the law. “As the Attorney General has said, when cities and states refuse to help enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe,” DOG spokesman Devin O’Malley told Fox News. “Failure to deport aliens who are convicted for criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk – especially immigrant communities in the very sanctuary jurisdictions that seek to protect the perpetrators.” The attorney general’s views were totally disregarded in a missive sent out by the Illinois Republican Party chairman Tim Schneider and County Chairman Association President Randy Pollard Monday night after Rauner signed the bill into law in front of an enthusiastic Latino audience in Chicago. “I think it is important that people know what Attorney General Sessions thinks about SB 31. Tim Schneider, the chief cheerleader for the ‘Capitol Compromise’ massive tax hike is now presenting more ‘alternative facts,'” McSweeney said. Cabello said lawmakers are supposed to do what’s best for those that are bearing the financial burden for decisions they make at the capitol. Not doing so will ultimately create consequences that political parties may not want, such as the base simply staying home in 2018. “People are telling me they’re so fed up with the party leaders and the governor that they’re just not going to go to the polls in 2018. That’s the opposite of what they should do,” Cabello, who co-chaired the Trump campaign in Illinois, said. “They need their voices to be heard loud and clear. Staying home is not an option.” Only one Republican House member – Bob Pritchard – voted in support of SB 31 on the House floor. Four Republicans – McConchie, McConnaughay, Nybo and Radogno – supported it in the Illinois Senate. Cabello and McSweeney’s repeal bill is HB 4091.)

— DEMOCRATIC WHITE MEN HIT “GLASS CEILING” – RUSS STEWART  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, a) anti-Whites demonize, denigrate, and condemn Whites as being racists and b) anti-men demonize, denigrate and condemn men as being sexists.  Overwhelmingly, anti-Whites and anti-men are Democrats.)
http://www.russstewart.com/articles/2017/08-30-2017.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tokenism, as an adjective defined by Webster’s Dictionary, is an act merely simulated, of slight or no account. As a noun, it is an act of accommodation to a demand by slight and merely formal concessions. For Democrats in Cook County, August’s slatemaking for their 2018 ticket was both a noun and an adjective, particularly regarding white men. Of the 16 candidates endorsed by the party for countywide offices, including judges, a grand total of three are while males, or about 18 percent. In the Democratic Party, men have hit the proverbial “glass ceiling.” Having a white man on the ticket is now of slight or no account. Of the remaining 13, seven are black, of which four are black women. That’s 44 percent. Seven are women. That’s another 44 percent. And two are Hispanics. That’s just 12 percent. As a noun, every key Democratic constituency got more than token accommodation. White males are no longer a key constituency. As expected, the Big Three – County Board president Toni Preckwinkle, House Speaker and state Democratic chairman Mike Madigan, and Alderman Ed Burke (14th) – did the dictating, with Burke picking the judges, and the 50 city and 30 suburban committeemen did the capitulating. Preckwinkle is expanding her empire exponentially, and is at the top of the heap. In the 2016 cycle, Preckwinkle engineered the slating of her county aide, Kim Foxx, for state’s attorney. She easily beat incumbent Anita Alvarez in the primary. She also worked with Madigan, dispatching another aide, Juliana Stratton, to run against independent-minded Ken Dunkin, who had the temerity to defy Madigan on several Illinois House votes. With a flood of Madigan money, Stratton buried Dunkin, and Madigan got another ally in Springfield. Now Preckwinkle and Madigan have worked again, plunking Stratton on J.B. Pritzker’s ticket for lieutenant governor in the March 2018 primary, and then delivering an endorsement of Pritzker for governor. Crafting a Pritzker-Stratton ticket sealed the deal, and Preckwinkle delivered all the black committeemen at slatemaking. And finally, another former Preckwinkle aide, Kim du Buclet, now a state representative, got slated for the 2-year Metropolitan Water Reclamation District term, beating a Hispanic backed by state Representative Luis Arroyo (D-3), and a longtime insider and donor associated with the North Shore Realtors. In the slating for county clerk, a job David Orr is relinquishing after 28 years, Recorder Karen Yarbrough, who is black and a Madigan protege, was slated. For Preckwinkle, despite the soda tax snafu, it’s “Veni, vidi, vici” – “I came, I saw, I conquered.”)

— Kyle McCarter: Rauner is ‘the best Republican Democrats have ever had’ – Ann Maher
https://madisonrecord.com/stories/511200480-mccarter-rauner-is-the-best-republican-democrats-have-ever-had
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Calling Gov. Bruce Rauner “the best Republican Democrats have ever had,” fellow GOPer State Sen. Kyle McCarter believes the sanctuary state bill signed into law yesterday will negatively effect the governor’s re-election hopes. “This is not just bad policy,” McCarter said of Rauner’s adoption of the Trust Act. “It’s bad politics.” The “sanctuary state” measure in Senate Bill 31 limits the role local and state police can have in enforcing federal immigration laws. While Rauner touts the Act as one that will improve “connectivity between immigrants and law enforcement, making Illinois safer for all residents,” critics like McCarter say it shows the governor “is not committed to protecting the citizens of Illinois but criminal Illegals.” Leading up to Rauner’s action yesterday, McCarter addressed criticism he faced for not backing his fellow Republican. McCarter said that party loyalty can only go so far. “You can’t overlook what’s right and wrong, and you can’t defend what’s wrong as though it’s right just because your party leader says this is the way it is,” McCarter said in a Facebook post. “We all need to be held accountable.” In a radio interview with radio hosts Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson at AM 560 in Chicago on Tuesday morning, McCarter said he was concerned about “my party” and its brand being tainted, or at least “confused.” He said that within the congressional district he is considering taking a run at – the 15th Congressional District currently represented by Republican John Shimkus – a majority in the 33 counties of the southern Illinois district voted for President Trump. “His immigration policy was one of the reasons they voted for him,” McCarter said. “I think this is going to negatively effect Rauner’s election.” When asked whether Rauner might face a primary challenge, McCarter said he wasn’t sure it was a practical idea as any rival would run against “a very wealthy man.” But he also said that primaries are good because they make candidates better, forcing them to focus on what they stand for. In a final segment of the radio program, Proft turned to an article in a news outlet Proft established – Prairie State Wire – that examines state contracts totaling $16.88 billion amassed for clients of Nancy Kimme, a Republican, whom he described as a “longtime inside player.” Kimme had served as chief of staff to the late Judy Baar Topinka, who passed away shortly after being elected state comptroller in 2014. After Topinka’s passing, Kimme turned to lobbying, and according to Proft, had worked out of the governor’s office under the “previous regime” before a staff shakeup in July. Proft asked McCarter about Rauner’s promise to “shake up” Springfield and turn around Illinois, as in his version of “draining the swamp.” “Unfortunately, Republicans in Illinois dwell in the swamp as well,” McCarter said. “It’s not just a home for Democrats. Cultures of corruption don’t change overnight, no culture does…typically what happens when it does change, you have spectacular principled leaders and it’s those leaders that stand strong and can really move culture in the right direction.” McCarter said he “knew the reality” of how things work in Springfield when he had asked a state agency director about employment for someone he knew. “I had asked a director one time in this administration if there was a place to provide a job to a man who was unjustly treated by the previous administration, and one of best workers we had in the state,” McCarter said. “And he told me he couldn’t do anything about that, but he told me that I should go to the firm of Nancy Kimme…I thought that was just a little odd.” Proft said, “The agency director couldn’t do anything but the shadow government could, if you wanted to enlist them at a price.” “Exactly,” McCarter said. “That is disappointing and shows you the depth of this culture of corruption.”)

WIRE POINTS
— A Particularly Disastrous Day For Illinois And Rauner (Mr. Rauner, That Is) – Mark Glennon
http://www.wirepoints.com/a-particularly-disastrous-day-for-illinois-and-rauner-mr-rauner-that-is-wirepoints-original/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Finally, on Monday, Rauner signed the Trust Act. People I respect who have studied it  closely (I haven’t) split on it’s legal importance. Some say it makes Illinois a “sanctuary” state while some say it just codifies court rulings and has symbolic importance only. But even that symbolic importance is huge. Many opponents of sanctuary cities, who comprise much of Rauner’s base, are absolutely livid and they don’t really give a damn whether it’s just symbolic. Rauner’s support is now getting national attention and derision. The bottom line is that both Illinois and Rauner lost big time on Monday, and it wasn’t just because of politics, spin, or Rauner’s bad communication skills. On the subject of communication, yes, Rauner’s staff has long shared blame and the recent turmoil in his staff left a void. But the primary failure is Rauner’s own. He’s seems forever unprepared. Though usually directionally correct, he gets facts wrong, exaggerates and sometimes just doesn’t know. He contradicts himself from one day to another. Platitudes suffice for arguments. Since he’s unquestionably smart and a true workaholic, he has no excuse for appearing to be so lazy about substance. Ironically, while his conservative base wobbles, the narrative prevails that right wing nutjobs now dominate his staff. Among other reasons why that’s false is that First Lady Diana Rauner, by all credible accounts, is the most powerful person on the team. I don’t know her but those who do say she’ smart, opinionated and driven, though less charitable synonyms aren’t uncommon. Most importantly, she’s a liberal Democrat and she pushes for liberal Democratic policies. To her and to her fellow party members in the General Assembly, I say this sincerely: Touché. You had an extraordinarily successful Monday, on both policy and politics.)

Because they have that clout, they believe that they, their operatives, and their dupes can/should defame me.

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— West Chicago Library Votes to Retain Age Inappropriate Picture Book – Thomas Madison  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats encourage children to engage in LGBTQ activity.)
https://illinoisfamily.org/education/west-chicago-library-votes-retain-age-inappropriate-picture-book/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On August 28th, the West Chicago Public Library Board voted 6-1 to retain the homosexuality-celebrating picture book This Day in June. IFI thanks you for your support in emailing the library director Benjamin Weseloh to share your concerns about this book. There were roughly 80-100 people in attendance, and 90 percent of them were pro-LGBT supporters of the book. Unfortunately, this is usually the case when book controversies arise. Those who seek to normalize disordered sexuality are far more passionate, tenacious, and bold than are those who oppose the normalization of sexual deviance. The Left seems to care far more about promoting lies to young children than conservatives do in protecting them from lies. Those community members who had the wisdom and courage to oppose this troubling picture book needed much more verbal support at the meeting. IFI is disappointed in the absence of local community support for those brave men and women. We know significant opposition to this book exists because of the hundreds of messages that were sent to the director, but emails alone are insufficient if real change is to occur. Sometimes people are unable to make meetings, but often emailing concerns represents indefensible cowardice or surrender. The supporters of the book came out strongly against IFI, explicitly attacking us and making numerous spurious statements. The most obviously false statement was that IFI is a hate group. IFI’s positions on homosexuality no more constitute hatred of persons who believe differently than does disapproval of polyamory or polygamy constitute hatred of polyamorists or polygamists. Leftists are either unable to understand this distinction or unwilling to admit it because they know that fallacious ad hominem attacks work. The most startling remarks made in support of the book were that the content was not sexual. This is a complete denial of reality and a reminder that people will pervert the truth to suit their own lifestyles. The book is specifically intended toward “helping” children recognize and accept the diversity of sexual preferences. It features men kissing men and women kissing women. Since when is romantic kissing or even simply kissing romantic partners not a sexual act? Some of the board members noted the importance of the library representing the diverse views found in its community. The speciousness of this claim is revealed in the absence of books on a host of topics. This absence is due—at least in part—to librarians imposing their moral views through the purchasing process. When they impose their views, it’s called responsible text selection. When conservatives want purchases to reflect their views, leftists call it censorship and book-banning. We were disappointed not only in learning how the board members voted but also in learning that regardless of their votes, the book would have stayed on the shelf. According to the parliamentarian, the policy of the board is to let the library staff decide for themselves the quality of material, so last night’s vote was a non-binding vote. The board’s policy is reflective of the American Library Association (ALA), the far-leftist organization that wanted children’s computers to have access to pornography) and which actively promotes homosexuality and the “trans” ideology. Should unelected library staff whose training comes through the highly politicized and leftist field of library science be granted such near-absolute autonomy?Ultimately, if community members want to see this inappropriate book moved to a restricted area—as it is in other local libraries like Downers Grove—or removed altogether, they will either have to convince the staff to move or remove the book, or West Chicagoans must elect better board members to change board policy. West Chicago Public Library employee Joan Happel posted this celebratory announcement on Facebook, “The library director’s decision is to keep the book where it is! That decision was never in question.” Happel evidently finds nothing problematic about a picture book for young children whose author said this: “When I wrote this story, I wanted Pride to be featured as realistically as possible. I wanted to see drag queens, guys in leather, rainbows, political signs, the Dykes on Bikes—everything you would see at Pride. I didn’t want any of it to be watered-down or sugarcoated. Lots of people have asked me, “Do you think that’s appropriate for children?” And my answer always is YES.” Unfortunately, numerous libraries throughout the country and in Illinois are using public monies to promote the normalization of homosexuality and the “trans” ideology. The battle against dissenting views—including Judeo-Christian views—continues. Those relatively few brave souls who step up to oppose deception—especially deception that harms children—need many others to come alongside them. IFI wonders how many area pastors showed up to make statements about this book. Here is a breakdown of how the West Chicago Library Board voted and their respective term expiration years.)

https://www.stripes.com/news/pentagon-expands-policy-to-upgrade-vets-bad-paper-discharges-1.485038#.WaaQ7BHxZZI
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Defense Department on Monday issued a sweeping policy change to afford more leeway to veterans seeking upgrades to their other-than-honorable discharges. A memorandum dated Aug. 25 instructs the Army Review Boards Agency — the office charged with changing military records — to give “liberal consideration” to veterans looking to upgrade their less-than-honorable discharges, or “bad paper,” because of mental health conditions or traumatic brain injury, sexual assault or sexual harassment and outlines what should be considered when deciding an upgrade. In 2014, former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel had ordered the Army Review Boards Agency to give consideration to veterans looking to upgrade their less-than-honorable discharges because of post-traumatic stress disorder. The new memo expands on Hagel’s order after years of veterans asking for government recognition that troops are, in some instances, affected by service-related mental health conditions that change their behaviors and lead to disciplinary problems. “This new guidance is something that veteran advocates should be really excited about – it’s what we’ve been asking for from the Pentagon for years,” said Kristofer Goldsmith, an Iraq War veteran who has fought for 10 years to change upgrade procedures. “This memo is filled with signals that there may yet be hope for the thousands of veterans who have been unfairly suffering the effects of bad paper.”)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— Bruce Rauner, betrayer of the Illinois GOP – Cheryl K. Chumley
http://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/aug/29/bruce-rauner-betrayer-illinois-gop/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There used to be a time when Republicans stood for certain non-negotiables — free markets, lower taxes, limited governments and yes, law and order at the borders. Then came Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner. And all the Republicans go — whaat? The Republican — repeat, Republican — governor just signed a bill into law limiting the ability of police to work with feds on immigration. Specifically, the new law “prohibits police from searching, arresting or detaining someone solely because of immigration status, or because of so-called federal immigration detainers,” ABC News reported. Local authorities ostensibly can still contact federal immigration folk and hold illegals in jail cells if there’s a criminal warrant for their arrest on file. But come on, now. What Rauner really signed was a sanctuary bill. He can spin it however he wants — and boy, did he. His side argues the bill is far from a sanctuary measure because it still allows for communication between locals and feds, and it makes clear the state has to abide federal law. But that’s smoke and mirrors. The fact that the language is nebulous enough to be having the debate over whether it’s sanctuary or not is proof in itself that it’s sanctuary enough to be interpreted by any leftists at the local levels — the first responders on law enforcement — as permission to protect and shield illegals. “This took months and months of difficult negotiations,” he said, during the highly touted, highly celebratory bill signing, complete with mariachi ban performances and speeches. “[But it helps Illinois] continuing to be a welcome state.” Welcoming state — that’s code for Hey Illegal, Come Here. It’s the language Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel uses when he insists his city will stay a welcome refuge for illegals, no matter what President Donald Trump does in terms of border crackdowns. It’s the defiant rhetoric New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio screams when he symbolically middle-fingers the White House on immigration controls. But Emanuel and de Blasio are Democrats — so yeah, that’s what they do. Flout the law and flaunt their progressive-socialist-globalist selves. Rauner? Once more, for the people in the back of the room: he’s a Republican. Go back to Paragraph One, the part where it says Republicans are supposed to stand for law and order — “republic” is in the name, for crying out loud — not democratic wispy-winded will of the mob. Did Rauner not get the manual? Illinois may be heavy on the Democrats, and Rauner may simply be trying to do some good ol’ fashioned politicking to save his poll numbers. But stepping toward Democrats on border security is not a winning platform. And hey now, lookie here — Rauner is indeed up for re-election in 2018. From Politico, December 2016: “Illinois Gov. Rauner drops $50 million into 2018 reelection bid.” Seems he’s trying to walk both paths, simultaneously — Democratic and Republican. What a perfect time for a primary candidate to emerge.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— IL GOP WARNS NOT TO BELIEVE “MISINFORMATION” CIRCULATING ABOUT IMMIGRATION LAW
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/il-gop-warns-not-to-believe-misinformation-circulating-about-immigration-law.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois Republican Party leaders are being told that the bill Governor Rauner signed into law Monday concerning how state and local law enforcement are to deal with non-citizens is really no big deal and not to overreact. They say some media and “other influencers” are not being truthful with party members and conservatives about what the new law does. The misleading sources say the law is to protect those in Illinois that are in America illegally by banning contact between local law enforcement and federal immigration officials unless local law enforcement has been notified of a federal criminal warrant concerning the illegal. In addition, local and state law enforcement are protected from accountability if a person they didn’t detain due to illegal status commits a crime. But that’s not accurate, the ILGOP leadership says. Effingham area’s Brian Milleville says the email was disturbing and confusing to most he’s talked to. When asked for a comment, Milleville told Illinois Review,  “I can only comment right now on what former law enforcement officers both state and local, in-state and out-state have told me. That is that this law does nothing but thwart federal law and endanger the citizens of Illinois in the name of political correctness and political pandering.” “I also know, based on what others have told me in response to SB31,” Milleville said, “that yesterday was the day Rauner officially lost his re-election.” “it’s our job to make sure” the governor succeeds, IL GOP Chairman Tim Schneider (also a Cook County Board Member) and IL GOP County Chairmen Association’s President Randy Pollard (also Rauner’s Downstate Chairman) wrote in and email sent out Monday night:)

 

ILLINOIS BUSINESS IMMIGRATION COALITION
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that reject the immigration plank in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform crow over Rauner’s signing SB 31. If you got elected or appointed to a government office or a political office in Illinois as a Republican, and if you take any kind of action against the IRP platform, you should resign immediately. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform.
http://mailchi.mp/illinoisbic/vvnms20cdi-811197?e=1d387c0f46
(FROM THE ANNOUNCEMENT: We thank Governor Bruce Rauner, SB 31 Chief sponsors Illinois Senate President John J. Cullerton and State Representative Emanuel “Chris” Welch; GOP leaders Christine Radogno, Bob Pritchard; co-sponsors Representatives Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez and Theresa Mah, Senators Martin Sandoval, Don Harmon, Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, Illinois Sheriffs Association, and many stakeholders for achieving this smart, sensible policy for our state. We congratulate the Campaign for a Welcoming Illinois for their leadership on the Trust Act.)

 

REAL GOP ILLINOIS
— ANTI-AMERICAN: Rauner approves $1M grant for group behind sanctuary state bill
https://realgopillinois.com/2017/08/29/rauner-approves-million-dollar-grant-sanctuary-state-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s official: thanks to GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER, Illinois is now a sanctuary state. Rauner signed SB31 into law Monday morning, surrounded by a coalition of open border groups, proudly undocumented immigrants and Democrat officials. Over the weekend, Rauner also signed two other popular Democrat bills – an automatic voter registration bill and a gender ID bill, which allows transgender people to change the gender on their birth certificates. Rauner’s allies getting the heat for sanctuary state bill  Rauner’s conservative allies can no longer claim the Governor is a conservative – but will they still support him after this betrayal of principle? As more conservative voters learn of Rauner’s betrayal, they are taking to social media to express their outrage and anger. The outrage is quickly spilling over at Rauner’s supporters. Rauner’s allies know the sanctuary state time bomb has been detonated and they’ve been hit with the shrapnel. The wounds are deep. They will not heal. There’s more. Rauner Administration doled out $1 million to immigrant group behind SB31. An investigation by Real GOP Illinois reveals that the Rauner Administration continued to pay a state grant of nearly $1 million dollars to the group who pushed the sanctuary state bill, SB31. The group, ILLINOIS COALITION FOR IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE RIGHTS, was approved to receive more than $956,000 in state funds and received more than $500,000 in funds approved by the Rauner Administration despite the budget impasse. Look….Governor approved these amounts in 2015: 8/17/2015 – $148,119.21, 8/11/2015 – $187, 368.70, and 8/11/2017- $134,907.66 . . . The Rauner Administration also approved $684,000 in state grants for a group called MIGRANT EDUCATION, INC. . . . What is Migrant Education, Inc. anyway?  How horrible is Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights? The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights is a group that promotes open borders. Why is it receiving any state money when Illinois’ debt backlog exceeds $14 billion. In 2013, the group also spearheaded the bipartisan legislation to allow undocumented immigrants to get Illinois driver’s licenses. With Rauner’s approval of automatic voter legislation, the stage is set for large-scale voter fraud. With a Republican Governor like Rauner, who needs a Democrat?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rauner entered a bill signing ceremony at Mi Tierra restaurant in Little Village to cheers from at least 200 supporters of the measure. Outside, an opponent carried a sign that said, “Illinois victim families say no sanctuary state.” . . . Before the governor inked his signature to the bill, Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, a fluent Spanish speaker, kicked off the speeches with remarks in both English and Spanish in which she insisted that, “contrary to popular belief, this bill does not turn Illinois into a sanctuary state.” Instead, she said, “it will help us keep violent criminals behind bars.”)

The law comes amid immigration crackdowns that have led to arrests statewide. Former GOP congressman and conservative talk radio host Joe Walsh reacted on Twitter, calling Rauner’s decision a “slap in the face” to citizens.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Rauner’s Illinois Republican Party – Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: He who pays the piper calls the tunes. Ever-increasingly, by his words and by his actions, Rauner and his allies make it clear that they want the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) to get rid of precinct committeemen/captains, township/ward party officers, county party officers, IRP State Central Committee (SCC) members, IRP offices, the IRP National Committeeman, the IRP National Committeewoman, etc. a) who support Trump and/or b) who oppose promoting LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, pot, etc.  This is not new.  Since at least the 1970s, the IRP has been dominated by anti-conservatives, that is, by anti-Republicans.  Things are going to get even worse for Illinois Republicans as long as Illinois Republicans are prohibited from directly electing IRP SCC members.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-immigration-20170828-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Rauner’s campaign put an additional $500,000 into the Illinois GOP last week, further cementing it as an extension of the governor’s re-election. With the latest contribution, the governor personally or through his campaign fund has donated about $31.1 million to the state Republican Party since he became its nominee for governor in March 2014. Rauner donations account for 68.5 percent of the nearly $45.4 million that the state GOP has raised during that time period. The party also has gotten sizable donations from the House Republican campaign committee and some GOP candidates that occurred after they received big checks from the Rauner campaign. Rauner hasn’t been shy that he wants to erode the Democratic majorities in the General Assembly to help accomplish his agenda. The state GOP was a central repository for Rauner money for Republican legislative elections last year. During a stop in Marion last week, Rauner complained about the legislature’s Democratic dominance under House Speaker Michael Madigan and lamented court rulings that struck down attempts to put term limits and changes in legislative redistricting on the ballot as proposed constitutional amendments. “We need to get people elected in the legislature who support term limits and fair maps, and we’ll get this done. This is a goal we will never give up on. But they defeated us so far. But we’ll get it done,” he said.)
— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Rauner set to sign immigration bill Monday – Rick Pearson
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-immigration-20170828-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But state Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, opposed the measure and said Rauner would be better off being in Springfield and “working against a Chicago bailout” of its public schools. “I do not think this legislation is necessary,” McSweeney said of the immigration measure. “We don’t need to limit the ability of our police officers to enforce the laws.”)

— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Rauner in Chicago, signs voter registration bill; immigration act next – Mitch Dudek
http://chicago.suntimes.com/chicago-politics/rauner-in-chicago-to-sign-immigrant-rights-voter-registration-bills/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A slew of groups that advocate for the rights of undocumented residents are say the law offers the strongest state-level protections of the due-process rights of people facing deportation. “This bill will provide an unprecedented level of protection for Illinois’ half-million undocumented residents who could otherwise enter the deportation pipeline through any simple interaction with police, including a traffic violation or a call to report a crime,” according to a joint news release issued by the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Asian Americans Advancing Justice and the National Immigrant Justice Center. “Once the TRUST Act is enacted, Illinois will be the gold standard for statewide protections against deportation.”)

NEW YORK TIMES
— The Biggest Misconception About Today’s College Students – Gail O. Mellow  (DIERSEN: Do you have a degree from an Ivy League school?  While I have four college degrees, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that none of them are from Ivy League schools.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/opinion/community-college-misconception.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You might think the typical college student lives in a state of bliss, spending each day moving among classes, parties and extracurricular activities. But the reality is that an increasingly small population of undergraduates enjoys that kind of life. Of the country’s nearly 18 million undergraduates, more than 40 percent go to community college, and of those, only 62 percent can afford to go to college full-time. By contrast, a mere 0.4 percent of students in the United States attend one of the Ivies. The typical student is not the one burnishing a fancy résumé with numerous unpaid internships. It’s just the opposite: Over half of all undergraduates live at home to make their degrees more affordable, and a shocking 40 percent of students work at least 30 hours a week. About 25 percent work full-time and go to school full-time. The typical college student is also not fresh out of high school. A quarter of undergraduates are older than 25, and about the same number are single parents. These students work extremely hard to make ends meet and simultaneously get the education they need to be more stable: A two-year degree can earn students nearly 20 percent more annually than just a high school diploma.)

NBC5
— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Rauner to Sign Immigration Bill Amid Conservative Backlash – Shelby Bremer (DIERSEN: Those who want Rauner to sign the bill also want Rauner to officially dump those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/politics/rauner-to-sign-illinois-trust-act-441922333.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some say the bill would turn Illinois into a “sanctuary state,” the term used for jurisdictions that do not comply with federal requests to detain undocumented immigrants who have been arrested on charges unrelated to their immigration status and turn them over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for possible deportation. President Donald Trump has made a concerted effort to crack down on these jurisdictions, signing an executive order in January to halt federal grants to so-called sanctuary cities. . .Often reluctant to discuss national political issues, particularly as they relate to Trump, Rauner will sign the bill – which received one Republican vote in the House and five in the Senate – on the final day of his 60-day window to act on the legislation ends, in a move that has already angered some of the state’s more conservative voters and pundits. Far-right website Breitbart News slammed the first-term governor for his support of the bill, sharing criticisms of the measure from conservative commentators like Rosanna Pulido, former Republican candidate for Congress and founder of the anti-immigration group Illinois Minutemen. “Personally I am already checking out a different state I can move to. It is truly a sad day in Illinois,” Pulido said, calling SB 31 “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Former congressman and conservative radio host Joe Walsh tweeted Tuesday that Rauner is “done” if he signs the bill, adding that it would be a “bad terrible day for Illinois” and he would not support his reelection.)

COMMON DREAMS
— Chicagoans to March in Solidarity Against White Supremacists – Solidarity Against White Supremacy  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn as being White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that do not join them in viciously demonizing, viciously denigrating, and viciously condemning those that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2017/08/27/chicagoans-march-solidarity-against-white-supremacists
(FROM THE ANNOUNCEMENT: CHICAGO – A coalition of Chicagoans representing more than 50 community and labor organizations will assemble at 2pm, Sunday, August 27 to say NO to white supremacists, and the political culture & public officials propagating hate, violence and inequality. Late Friday, knowing they would face massive opposition, neo-fascists in the Bay Area cancelled their planned events. Counter-protesters in the Bay Area decided to continue the plan to take their opposition to the bigots to the streets, and we will be doing the same here in Chicago. The Chicago event, entitled Solidarity Against White Supremacy, will begin at Federal Plaza, corner of Adams and Dearborn Streets, and march to near Trump Tower, corner of Wabash and Wacker Avenues. Solidarity Against White Supremacy is part of the National Weekend of Solidarity, a national effort to show support for community members planning to protest hate groups and other racists in San Francisco and Berkeley on the weekend of August 26-27. The rally comes in the wake of the Charlottesville violence and the inability of officials like President Trump and Governor Bruce Rauner to properly condemn it. “While many are prompted to protest the egregious responses of Trump, Rauner and others to the fascist hate and violence in Charlottesville, we also recognize that this hate has deep institutional roots in our country, and many of the policies pursued by politicians of both parties reinforce, rather than diminish it,” said Jaquie Algree vice president for external relations of SEIU Healthcare Illinois & Indiana. “Depriving schools serving primarily Black and Brown youth of the music, art, sports and other programs enjoyed by wealthier, whiter students, closing public mental health clinics, slashing social services relied on by women and people of color, attacking unions, deporting millions of immigrants—all these are policies that reinforce the racism and other hate highlighted in Charlottesville.” Solidarity Against White Supremacy organizers note that the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, VA was but the most publicized in a string of neo-fascist terrorist attacks in the United States. In 2016, attacks on Muslims increased 67% over the preceding year. In May of this year, Black Bowie State student Richard W. Collins III was murdered by a neo-Nazi on the University of Maryland campus. In June, Richy John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche were murdered in Portland when they intervened to stop racist harassment of two young Black women. “When Trump says he wants to ‘make America great again,’ we know that he wants to turn the clock back to a time when few had the courage to oppose the racism, sexism, anti-Semitism and anti-LGBTQ hate espoused by his core, ‘Alt-Right,’ neo-fascist supporters,” said Andy Thayer of the Gay Liberation Network. “It is no accident that Chicago is one of the cities where these organized creeps are at their weakest – On March 11, 2016, Chicagoans forced then-candidate Trump to cancel his rally at UIC. On August 27, Chicagoans will gather once again to tell white supremacists and anyone else with the intent to harm, that they are not welcome in Chicago.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner has approved the creation of the Illinois Muslim American Advisory Council. The Republican signed the plan into law on Friday without offering comment. The council’s purpose is to advise the governor and legislators on policy issues affecting Muslim Americans and immigrants. It’ll be made up of 21 members, appointed by the governor and legislative leaders. The group is required to meet monthly and issue policy recommendations. Proponents say establishing the council sends a welcoming message to Muslims. Opponents question resources used on advisory councils. Former Gov. Pat Quinn had established a similar group by executive order in 2011, but the group disbanded when Rauner took office in 2015. Illinois has over 500,000 Muslims and more than 300 mosques.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— Illinois governor vetoes bill to raise state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour – Alexia Elejalde-Ruiz (DIERSEN: If you had earned $15/hour in today’s dollars when you were in high school, what you have done with the money?  I worked part-time 1964-1966 for the minimum wage ($1.25/hour) while I was a 16 and 17 year old high school student. In today’s dollars in 1966, I earned $9.49/hour. (SEE:
https://www.dollartimes.com/inflation/items/1966-united-states-minimum-wage) That job enabled me to earn and save enough money to buy a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint in May of 1966 a) that I used to commute to jobs cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, and pumping gasoline during the summer of 1966 and delivering mail 1966-1967 and b) that I used to commute to classes at UIC from my parents’ home in Crete 1966-1967. In December of 1967, I sold it and used that money and money that I had earned and saved delivering mail to buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442.)

USA TODAY
— Get your budget back in shape after splurging on vacation – Elizabeth Renter  (DIERSEN: Vacations are expensive. Your GOPUSA Illinois Editor and his wife are not planning any kind of vacation. My $50,856/year pension is only 41% of the $122,991/year that I earned in 1997 in today’s dollars. Because my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, we have at least $72,135 less each year or $6,011 less each month or $1,387 less each week or $198 less each day to spend on vacations  I went on vacations in 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, and 1977.  My wife and I went on many vacations, typically four each year, 1978-1992 in connection with her business trips to luxury resorts all across America. Of course, my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were beyond furious about that.)
