CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE WITH COLOR PICTURE: Campaign signs are everywhere. But do they work? – Kate Thayer (DIERSEN: What has your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain done to encourage the Republican voters in your precinct to display signs for the Republican candidates on the November 6, 2018 ballot in your precinct? In August, I hand-delivered a letter (https://gopillinois.com/documents/) to all the homes in my precinct that had at least one registered Republican voter that asked them to consider displaying yard signs for the Republican candidates on the November 6, 2018 ballot in our precinct. The letter included a listing of all the candidates and the office that they are running for. I hand-delivered the letter a second time in September to the Republican homes on the busier streets in my precinct – Roosevelt Road, Warrenville Road, and Elm Street. Since September 4, 2018 my two Roskam 4X4s and my two “Vote Republican” 4X4s have been displayed on the second floor balcony of Ron Dell’s building at the southeast corner of Roosevelt and Warrenville in my precinct. Three 4X3 Roskam signs are being displayed on Warrenville south of Roosevelt, one at Park and Wheaton by Whittier Grade School, one at Elm and Wheaton by Edison Middle School, and one at Warrenville and Arbor.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-casten-business-background-20180927-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans, though, have attacked Casten’s business career in campaign ads, zeroing in on a 2015 lawsuit filed by an investor in Recycled Energy Development, which converted emissions from power plants into energy. Casten was the company’s president and CEO. The suit leveled allegations of mismanagement against Casten and the company’s leadership, including “baseless accounting manipulations,” “inflated salaries,” “improperly inflated bonuses” and “irresponsible spending,” according to court documents. Casten and his family eventually settled with the investor’s management firm and sold the company. Letters sent to investors in RED in the lead-up to the sale that were obtained by the Chicago Tribune stated that while preferred interest holders in RED would recoup their investment plus interest, common interest investors would not.)

— There’s a surprising lack of detail in the ‘October surprise’ against Pritzker – Eric Zorn (DIERSEN: There are lots of details in Diersen v. GAO. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. In 1988, when I was 40 years old, I became an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged my Democrat GAO superiors with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)

https://www.nwherald.com/2018/10/18/republican-officials-condemn-attack-letters-to-woodstock-democrats/aruj6kc/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Anonymous attack letters sent to Woodstock residents with Democratic political signage on their lawns has pushed a pair of Republican leaders in McHenry County to speak against hate rhetoric in the community. “I condemn the coward(s) who wrote these letters, and ask anyone with any bit of concern for the direction in which our public conversation has gone to do the same,” state Rep. Steve Reick, R-Woodstock, said in a statement. “This transcends party, and silence is not an option.” The typed letters, signed by “The Phantom” and “The Wizard,” arrived in the mail last week for Woodstock Democrats Sarah Parisi and Lou Ness. The letters included no return address and attacked the residents for the signs planted in their yards supporting local Democrats.)

— Illinois to celebrate its 200th with star-studded lineup (DIERSEN: While my ancestors have been in northeast Illinois since 1844, it is ever-increasingly difficult for me to celebrate the 200th. Ever-increasingly those who dominate my precinct, who dominate Wheaton, who dominate Milton Township, who dominate DuPage County, and who dominate Illinois make progress in driving out of my precinct, out of Wheaton, out of Milton Township, out of DuPage County, and out of Illinois those who share my demographics. I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, old (70), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in northeast Illinois since 1844.)

— BEYOND TRAGIC: U.N.: 40 Percent of U.S. Births Occur Outside of Marriage – Dr. Susan Berry
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/18/u-n-40-percent-of-u-s-births-occur-outside-of-marriage/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A new report from the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) says 40 percent of all births in the United States occur outside of marriage, an increase from 10 percent in 1970. The data show births outside marriage in the European Union (EU) are up even greater. “The data show such births in the U.S. and EU are predominantly to unmarried couples living together rather than to single mothers,” Bloomberg reports. Michael Hermann, UNFPA’s senior adviser on economics and demography, told Bloomberg the EU likely has even more out-of-wedlock births than the U.S. because its member countries provide greater amounts of welfare and public health funding in their socialized medicine programs. Unwed parents are also provided with tax incentives, Hermann said. Kelly Jones, director for the Center on the Economics of Reproductive Health at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, reportedly said the data show cultural and religious norms about women and marriage have changed, and women are starting families later in life. In the U.S., the average age a woman has her first child is now 27, according to the data, up from 22 in 1970. “Women are claiming their ground professionally,” Jones said. “Delaying motherhood is a rational decision when you consider the impact it can have on your career, and that’s contributing to this trend.” The marriage rate has also declined in the U.S., according to the U.S. Census Bureau, as the number of cohabitating adults has risen. In addition, the U.S. fertility rate plummeted last year to a record low. John Santelli, professor at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, told Bloomberg the traditional culture of the West “has been reversed.” “Cohabiting partners are having children before getting married,” he said. “That’s a long-term trend across developing nations.” Hermann said the trend in the cultural shift will continue. “We can’t go back to ’50s,” he said. UNFPA is the largest international provider of sexual and reproductive health services – which include abortion. The U.N. agency has been linked to the support of population control programs such as China’s coercive abortion “one-child policy.” Soon after his inauguration in 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that reinstated and updated the “Mexico City Policy,” thereby ending UNFPA’s U.S. funding because of its support and funding of abortion.)

https://www.kiplinger.com/article/retirement/T012-C032-S014-can-the-office-gray-gracefully.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Remember the good old days when your career goal was to be employed by one company and stay there until your glorious retirement? In fact, over 40% of Baby Boomers stayed with their job for more than 20 years, and 18% stayed at least 39 years, according to a NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey. Pensions and stability were clearly driving forces. You could then look forward to your retirement party, which would include a toast to your long service, a gold watch and a pension that, along with Social Security, would guarantee you a financially secure life.)

— Don’t blame workers for state’s financial problems – Mike Newman, deputy director, AFSCME Council 31 (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, while I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the Democrats who ran GAO blamed GAO’s problems on its employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40. They certainly blamed me for GAO’s problems a) because they forced me to take a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 (currently $91,880) to GS-9 Step 10 (currently $72,677) to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars, b) because they did not promote me to GS-13 until 1986 when I was 38 years old, and c) because they never promoted me beyond GS-13.

— Illinois Family Institute advocacy group drops McCann – Rick Pearson
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-met-morning-spin-ken-griffin-jim-durkin-20181017-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The socially conservative Illinois Family Institute said it was rescinding its endorsement of Republican state Sen. Sam McCann’s Conservative Party bid for governor because of a McCann mailer attacking GOP state Rep. Tom Morrison of Palatine. McCann’s mail piece accuses Morrison of being a “Rauner RINO,” a reference to the acronym for “Republican in Name Only.” It reads: “Don’t vote for fake conservatives Bruce Rauner or Tom Morrison.” Rauner has come under fire from social conservatives for supporting legislation expanding abortion, immigration and transgender rights. On its website, the Family Institute accused McCann of an “11th-hour betrayal” of Morrison, who is facing a challenge from Democrat Maggie Trevor of Rolling Meadows. McCann’s candidacy is being funded almost entirely by labor union affiliates of the Operating Engineers. The institute accused McCann of being “bought and paid for” by unions.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS email subscriptions are worth at least $1,000 a year. I spend thousands of dollars each year for newspaper subscriptions, website expenses, and internet expenses.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois’ 6th Congressional District Republican candidate: Pete Roskam (incumbent) Democratic candidate: Sean Casten
CBS News Battleground Tracker Rating: Edge Democrat Democrats are eager to capture Illinois’ 6th Congressional District, which Clinton won by 7 points in 2016. Rep. Pete Roskam is relatively conservative for his wealthy, well-educated suburban district outside of Chicago. He votes in line with the president nearly 95 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight. He also opposes abortion and once called climate change “junk science” — even though he is currently a member of the House Climate Solutions caucus. Roskam voted for the tax overhaul and to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act in 2017. Democrat Sean Casten holds views diametrically opposed to Roskam’s on climate change, as a scientist and a founder of a clean-energy company. Casten is also one of the Democrats running for office who has been endorsed by Obama. Although there has been very little polling in the race, a September poll by the New York Times found Casten trailing Roskam by one point.)

— The Trump trap – Republicans duck president in key House races
https://www.politicususa.com/2018/10/17/special-report-the-trump-trap-republicans-duck-president-in-key-house-races-2.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Six-term Representative Peter Roskam has a good sense of how voters in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District feel about the president. Despite re-electing the Republican congressman in 2016, they backed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over Trump by nearly 7 percentage points. The district typifies the battlegrounds where Republican candidates face anti-Trump headwinds: a fast-growing suburb west of Chicago with a median income near $100,000. Roskam has made no statements of support for Trump on his website or in posts this year to his social media accounts. He acknowledges that associating himself with the president might do more harm than good. Having Trump campaign for him in the district “obviously wouldn’t be helpful,” he said in an interview. Roskam has criticized Trump’s tariffs on imported goods and has decried the administration’s separation of immigrant children from parents. After Trump held a July press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin and refused to condemn Putin for interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, Roskam called Trump’s performance “an affront to American democracy.” But Roskam notes that he also backs the president on issues important to pro-Trump voters, such as raising military spending and lowering taxes. In an August tweet, Roskam described as “absurd” a statement by his Democratic opponent comparing Trump with al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden. “This district is discerning,” Roskam said, and voters want a candidate who will represent their interests independent of the president. But Roskam’s reluctance to embrace Trump isn’t enough for some of the anti-Trump Republicans he’s trying to capture. “Peter Roskam has distanced himself from Trump, but he doesn’t stand up to him,” said Bill Wentz, 73, a lifelong Republican and former federal government lawyer. Roskam hasn’t done enough to fight the president on economic policies that Wentz says undermine traditional Republican support for free markets by picking “winners and losers.” He also is uncomfortable with Trump’s failure to fully embrace U.S. intelligence agencies’ finding that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections. Wentz’s answer: vote for Roskam’s Democratic opponent, Sean Casten.)

https://www.cpajournal.com/2018/09/21/reflections-on-my-66-years-in-public-accounting/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The concept of “up-or-out”—either get promoted in a reasonable time or find another job—did not exist until around 1965, when the large firms started to adopt the policy. Eight years after starting at Touche and after many rapid promotions, I was made a partner at the age of 31. I did not think I was too young to be a partner; others did. Today, 40 years after I left the firm, I am amazed how often someone introducing me says, “He was a partner of Deloitte,” to establish my credentials.)

FED SMITH
— How is the Annual COLA Different from an Annual Pay Raise? – Ian Smith (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have objected the most to a) the Post Office hiring me in 1966 and letting me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS hiring me in 1971 and letting me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS promoting me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, d) GAO hiring me in 1980 and letting me work there for almost 18 years, e) GAO promoting me in 1986, f) my getting COLAs, g) my getting step increases, and h) my getting pay raises.)
https://www.fedsmith.com/2018/10/15/annual-cola-different-annual-pay-raise/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every year around this time, we receive comments and questions from our readers about the cost of living adjustment (COLA) and the pay raise. Each is determined around the same time of the year and both take effect in the following year, assuming that there is a COLA and/or pay raise. The comments we see indicate that some federal employees and retirees do not understand the difference between the two. This is understandable; the federal pay and retirement systems are governed by a complex process with many different factors that can lead to endless variations depending on a person’s situation. . .The purpose of this article is to explain the differences in the COLA and the annual pay raise in an effort to clear up any misconceptions or confusion. The COLA The 2019 COLA was just announced. This applies to federal retirees and Social Security recipients, but not to current federal employees. In 2019, it will be 2.8%. The process for determining the COLA is automatic. You will either get one or not based solely on a formula that is put in place by law and determined based on the cost of living as measured by the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W). The amount of the COLA has nothing to do with whether a Republican or a Democrat majority is in office, whether or not it might get vetoed, or out of the spite or benevolence reflected by the latest pet projects among politicians in Congress. If Congress decides to change the law governing how a COLA is calculated, then maybe it will become subject to politics, but as of right now, it’s not.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. Eliminate electronic distractions Distractions can increase your workload and stress levels. The constant ding of e-mail and text notifications and Internet temptations can easily disrupt your focus and concentration. According to a study by the University of California, Irvine, it can take up to 23 minutes before you’re able to refocus on the work you were doing before you were interrupted. To start, set up temporary barriers to help keep you focused. Some web tools that can help are Freedom, a website blocker for your computer and phone, and Inbox Pause, which stops new e-mails from coming into your inbox for a time. While the prospect of quieting electronic noise like this may seem daunting at first, it can help maximize your work day and minimize the amount of overtime needed.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The specific provision in the bill that Foster and the nine other representatives were concerned about was the cap on deducting state and local taxes, known as the SALT deduction, to $10,000 a year. “The newest tax scam hurts families in Illinois by making the cap on state and local tax deductions for individuals permanent, and I call on Governor Rauner to address the damage the new tax law will have on Illinois taxpayers,” Foster said in a statement. “I opposed both pieces of legislation because they impose a significant burden on hardworking Illinoisans.” The letter states the representatives are “disappointed” Rauner didn’t oppose the SALT deduction provision in the bill and said other states have already taken steps to offer solutions.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Conservative mega-donor Richard Uihlein and Gov. Bruce Rauner parted ways bitterly after Rauner signed the HB40 abortion legislation supported by pro-choice advocates. Uihlein went on to bankroll Republican state Rep. Jeanne Ives’ primary campaign to the tune of $2.5 million. When she lost, Uihlein seemed to step back from political races. He gave only $1.5 million to various candidates across the state during Q2. That changed in Q3. He ramped up his support, giving $3.5 million to Dan Proft’s conservative Liberty Principles PAC, which is backing numerous GOP candidates in statehouse races. Uihlein also gave $150,000 to Bill Brady’s state Senate campaign in the 44th District (he’s running unopposed); and $300,000 to Barrett Davie, who’s running against Dem incumbent Julie Morrison for the 29th state Senate District seat. – Shia Kapos

— An Asian-American Dissident at Harvard Of course I’m grateful to have been admitted despite my background. But why shouldn’t I be critical? – Kelley Babphavong (DIERSEN: The Democrats who run the federal government use Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion to not hire and to get rid of those who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who the Democrats who run the federal government do not promote to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/an-asian-american-dissident-at-harvard-1539546451
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s not easy to voice my opinion about Harvard’s admissions policies on campus. For all the talk about “diversity,” many fellow students won’t tolerate my views. I often get comments such as, “How can you be against affirmative action? That’s racist,” and “You should be grateful to Harvard. Why are you critical of them?” . . . On campus, I’m often labeled as ignorant and bigoted for opposing affirmative action. I’m one of the few students who openly criticize Harvard. Even among friends and fellow Asian-American students, this is a polarizing issue that has fallen on partisan lines. Yet real alternatives to race-based affirmative action exist. Race-blind admissions processes that prioritize socioeconomic status, taking into account how applicants have dealt with life’s challenges, would do a far better job of creating genuine diversity. Asian-Americans know they are being unfairly discriminated against under a defense of diversity. Let’s hope the courts recognize it too.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The least-gifted children of high-income parents graduate from college at higher rates than the most-gifted children of low-income parents. First, consider the people whose genome scores in the top quarter on a genetic index the researchers associated with educational achievement. Only about 24 percent of people born to low-income fathers in that high-potential group graduate from college. That’s dwarfed by the 63 percent college graduation rate of people with similar genetic scores who are lucky enough to be born to high-income fathers. Contrast that with a finding from the other end of the genetic scoring scale: about 27 percent of those who score at the bottom quarter of the genetic index, but are born to high-income fathers, graduate from college. That means they’re at least as likely to graduate from college as the highest-scoring low-income students.)
