DAILY CALLER
— No Amnesty Is Good Amnesty – Ann Coulter (DIERSEN: Those who promote amnesty say that those who oppose amnesty are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things.)
http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/13/coulter-no-amnesty-is-good-amnesty/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump is being told that amnesty for “Dreamers,” or DACA recipients, will only apply to a small, narrowly defined group of totally innocent, eminently deserving illegal immigrants, who were brought to this country “through no fault of their own” as “children.” (Children who are up to 36 years old.) Every syllable of that claim is a lie, and I can prove it. To see how DACA will actually work, let’s look at another extremely limited amnesty that was passed in 1986. Farmers wanted temporary guest-worker permits for their cheap labor, so that they could continue pretending that the Industrial Revolution never happened and refuse to mechanize. (And, boy, did that work! We haven’t heard a peep about “crops rotting in the fields” since then. The agricultural amnesty was supposed to apply to — at most — 350,000 illegal aliens. It would be available only to illegals who were currently in the country doing the back-breaking farm work that no American would do. Without them, crops would wither on the vine. They were saving us from starvation! Talk about deserving. Are any Dreamers saving us from starvation? But instead of guest-worker permits, then-Rep. Charles Schumer — from the lush farmland of Brooklyn — decided to grant full amnesty to any illegals who had done farm work for at least 90 days in the previous year. That’s pretty restrictive, isn’t it? In the end, “up to 350,000 farm workers” turned into 1.3 million. Oh well, what are you going to do? No use worrying — let’s just move forward and get all these people voter registration cards! This innocent little amnesty for a small, clearly defined group of illegals quickly became amnesty for anyone who applied. The same thing will happen with any other amnesty, no matter how strictly the law is written. (And it won’t be written strictly.) In the first few years of the agricultural amnesty, internal Immigration and Naturalization Service statistics showed that 888,637 legalization applications were fraudulent. According to immigration agents, “farm workers” stated in their interviews that cotton was purple or that they had pulled cherries from the ground. Of the 888,637 fraudulent applications, guess how many our government approved. Answer: More than 800,000. The agricultural amnesty was so carefully administered that not one, but TWO of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers were in this country because of it. (More on that in another column.) The main problem with the farm worker amnesty, the DACA amnesty or any amnesty is that everyone involved in the entire immigration apparatus is feverishly working, on the taxpayer’s dime, to transform this country into a Third World hellhole. Lawyers for La Raza and lawyers for the government both believe it is their mission to humiliate and destroy white Christian America. (Actually, this country is “biracial Christian America,” plus a few Amerindians and anyone else who assimilated to Western European culture.) There are multitudes of them, and they will never, ever stop. Congress could pass a law granting amnesty to any 7-foot-tall, left-handed, red-headed illegal aliens from Lichtenstein — and hundreds of left-wing outfits would instantly set to work, demanding amnesty for witch doctors, cannibals, pederasts, terrorists and the rest of the multicultural universe that makes America so vibrant. On the other side of the application process would be government immigration bureaucrats who either used to work at La Raza, or hope to in the future. On the off chance that some particularly risible amnesty application is denied by a stodgy rules-follower in our immigration bureaucracy, that denial will be litigated before a federal judge in Hawaii, then appealed to the Ninth Circuit. For two decades after the 1986 amnesty, the federal courts were tied up with dozens of class-action lawsuits brought on behalf of illegal aliens — regular illegal aliens, farm worker illegal aliens and still-in-Mexico illegal aliens — challenging every aspect of the law. Is that how American tax dollars should be spent? On endless litigation, brought by America-hating activists on behalf of people who have no right to be in our country and decided by Democrat-appointed judges? (Who are also America-hating activists.) And when their work is done, there will be a lot more Democrat-appointed judges because there will be a lot more Democrats. Lawyers sued over everything — the absence of Creole interpreters, the requirement that illegals have proof of prior farm work and the rare denials of amnesty. Congress desperately tried passing laws that would prevent courts from hearing these cases — all to no avail. Left-wing lawyers just had to pick the right judge, and they won. In 2005 — nearly 20 years after the 1986 amnesty — the Ninth Circuit was still granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who claimed they had been unfairly denied because they were not in the country for the first amnesty. Seriously. No matter how the law is written, as long as anyone is eligible for amnesty, everybody’s getting amnesty. President Trump is the last president who will ever have a chance to make the right decision on immigration. After this, it’s over. The boat will have sailed. If he succeeds, all the p@ssy-grabbing and Russia nonsense will burn off like a morning fog. He will be the president who saved the American nation, its character, its sovereignty, its core identity. But if he fails, Donald Trump will go down in history as the man who killed America.)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/dont-buy-all-the-pr-style-hooey-about-dreamers/2017/09/12/adc246d6-9738-11e7-82e4-f1076f6d6152_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Who wants to deport “dreamers”? Not many people, it turns out. Even veteran immigration restrictionists seem willing to legalize this subset of undocumented immigrants if it is part of a package deal. That’s true even though a lot of what’s said about the dreamers is PR-style hooey. For example, it’s often said — indeed, former president Barack Obama just recently said — that the approximately 690,000 dreamers were “brought to this country by their parents.” Well, many were. But that’s not required to qualify as a protected dreamer under the various plans, including Obama’s. You just have to have entered the country illegally before age 16. You could have decided to sneak in against your parents’ wishes. You’re still a dreamer! Likewise, we’re told dreamers are college-bound high school grads or military personnel. That’s an exaggeration. All that’s actually required is that the dreamer enroll in a high school course or an “alternative,” including online courses and English-as-a-second-language classes. Under Obama’s now-suspended program, you didn’t even have to stay enrolled. Compared with the general population, dreamers are not especially highly skilled. A recent survey for several pro-dreamer groups, with participants recruited by those groups, found that while most dreamers are not in school, the vast majority work. But their median hourly wage is only $15.34, meaning that many are competing with hard-pressed lower-skilled Americans. The dreamers you read about have typically been carefully selected for their appeal. They’re valedictorians. They’re first responders. They’re curing diseases. They root for the Yankees. They want to serve in the Army. If dreamers are the poster children for the much larger undocumented population, these are the poster children for the poster children. Still, taking the dreamers as a whole, not just the dreamiest of them, they represent an appealing group of would-be citizens. So why not show compassion and legalize them? Because, as is often the case, the pursuit of pure compassion comes with harmful side effects. First, it would create perverse incentives. Can you imagine a stronger incentive for illegal immigration than the idea that if you sneak into the country your kids will get to be U.S. citizens? Sure, the protections don’t currently apply to recent entrants — under Obama’s plan, you had to have come before 2007. But those dates can be changed — Obama himself tried to do it once. And the rationale for rewarding those who arrive when young — that they’re here through “no fault of their own” and know only America, etc. — can apply on into the future, with no apparent stopping point. What about the poor kids who came in 2008? 2018? There’s a reason no country has a rule that if you sneak in as a minor, you’re a citizen. We’d be inviting the world. Second, it would have knock-on effects. Under “chain migration” rules established in 1965 — ironically as a sop to conservatives, who foolishly thought that they’d boost European inflows — new citizens can bring in their siblings and adult children, who can bring in their siblings and in-laws, until whole villages have moved to the United States. That means today’s 690,000 dreamers would quickly become millions of newcomers, who may well be low-skilled and who would almost certainly include the parents who brought them — the ones who, in theory, are at fault. There are obvious, sensible ways to control these side effects. Pair any dreamer amnesty with a major upgrade to our system to prevent a new undocumented wave — such as a mandatory extension of E-Verify, the system that lets employers check on the legal status of hires. Curtail the right to bring in distant relatives. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has proposed such a compromise — and it would be easy to compromise on his compromise, say by cutting back on chain migration only by the number of people that the new Dream Act adds to the citizenry. The president could declare a one-time act of mercy for those who came here during the pre-Trump Era of Laxity, but make clear the game was changed for future entrants. Why wouldn’t Democrats jump at such a deal? For years they’ve been touting “comprehensive immigration reform,” a mix of amnesty with stepped-up enforcement to prevent another undocumented surge. But the Dream Act is uncomprehensive. It’s all amnesty, no prevention — let alone any compensating reduction in legal inflows. It’s hard to avoid the thought that Democrats (and Republicans who support the Dream Act) aren’t really interested in preventing illegal inflows. They’re not inclined to take Cotton up on his deal because they don’t think they have to. If they win, we’ll get the compassion without dealing with its consequences. That would be especially unfortunate given the signs that Trump’s immigration crackdown, simply stepping up enforcement of current laws, is already helping to tighten the low end of the labor market and boost wages of low-skilled workers. News organizations are featuring stories from employers who aren’t getting their usual supply of undocumented workers and are forced to take radical measures — such as raising wages. Proof of this connection, in the public mind, may be what terrifies the pro-immigration lobby the most.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Apply background checks for gun purchases to voting – John R. Lott Jr. (DIERSEN: Knowing that they cannot pass a background check is a major reason why people do not seek jobs with the federal government. Other major reasons include a) the pay and benefits are terrible, b) the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) they cannot pass an employment examination, e) they cannot pass a physical examination, f) they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and g) they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against the aforesaid.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/commentary/ct-perspec-gun-background-checks-voting-0912-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republicans worry about vote fraud. Democrats claim that Republicans are just imagining things. But in testimony Tuesday before the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, I will suggest a simple solution that could make both parties happy: Apply the background check system for gun purchases to voting. Democrats have long lauded background checks on gun purchases as simple, accurate and in complete harmony with the Second Amendment right to own guns. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has bragged that the checks “make our communities and neighborhoods safer without in any way abridging rights or threatening a legitimate part of the American heritage.” If Democrats really believe that the National Instant Criminal Background Check System doesn’t interfere “in any way” with people’s constitutional rights to own a gun, doesn’t it follow that the same system would not constitute an infringement on people’s right to vote? This would give Republicans a system for stopping vote fraud and Democrats a system that they have already vigorously endorsed. The NICS system doesn’t just determine if potential gun buyers have criminal histories. It also checks whether a person is in this country illegally, has a nonimmigrant visa or has renounced his citizenship. Such people are not allowed to vote. The system doesn’t currently flag people who are on immigrant visas but who could be added to the system. In 34 states, felons are not able to vote immediately upon release. The background-check system would detect these too. Of course, Democrats and Republicans will continue to argue over whether illegal voting is a major problem. Since Democrats believe that the NICS doesn’t in any way interfere with or suppress gun ownership, how could it suppress legal voter registration? Thus, Democrats shouldn’t have anything to worry about. If there doesn’t turn out to be any vote fraud, Democrats can say that they were proved right.)

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/11/exclusive-lawmaker-investigates-govt-employees-using-taxpayer-dollars-to-get-college-degrees-unrelated-to-their-jobs/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: GOP Texas Rep. Lamar Smith is demanding the Energy Department (DOE) turn over documents related to the agency paying for a government engineer’s law degree that was completely unrelated to his job. Smith wants to make sure more DOE employees aren’t having taxpayers foot the bill for college degrees completely unrelated to their jobs. Funding one engineer’s law degree cost taxpayers $138,000, agency auditors found in July. “The Committee is concerned this could be an indication of a more widespread occurrence of inappropriate training authorizations and expenditures within DOE,” wrote Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. “To better understand this case, and learn what steps DOE has taken to prevent a similar occurrence in the future, we request that DOE provide certain documents and information to the Committee,” Smith wrote in a letter sent to Secretary of Energy Rick Perry on Tuesday. “The Committee has questions about why Darian Ghorbi received preferential treatment during his tenure at DOE under the prior administration,” Smith further wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. DOE auditors reported in July that senior officials had allowed agency engineer Darian Ghorbi to take law classes at American University in Washington, D.C. at taxpayer expense. However, Ghorbi left DOE shortly after earning his law degree in May 2013 “for work in the private sector,” investigators found. DOE officials “had not considered the use of a continued service agreement for this employee despite the fact that he had taken extensive training at considerable cost.” What auditors found most unusual was that DOE already has policies in place to prevent this issue, but “these controls were overridden by senior management officials in the approval chain at the time.” Those senior management left no documentation of why they made their decision, and they couldn’t be interviewed by auditors “because they had left the agency,” auditors found. Ghorbi and his managers worked in DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy. President Donald Trump’s budget proposed shrinking the office 54 percent, from $618 million in 2017 to $280 million in 2018. Congress has already proposed legislation that reverses the cuts proposed by the White House. A House bill released in July only cuts the DOE’s fossil office $33 million.)

How soon, if not already, will anti-Trumps call for the deportation of all those whose ancestors a) immigrated to America before the Civil War and/or b) lived anywhere in America where slavery was legal?)

www.gopillinois.com and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails because they include links to articles posted at the IFI website at https://illinoisfamily.org/ and at AFAH website at http://americansfortruth.com/ (SEE: http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/family-institute-smeared-as-one-of-32-illinois-hate-groups-along-with-neo-nazis-and-skinheads.html  Constructively, while I served as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman 2005-2012, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes treated TAPROOT as being a hate group and treated me as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot and even worse things because I invited IFI and AFTAH leaders to speak at TAPROOT events. Individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that blacklist IFI and AFTAH blacklist me because I refuse to blacklist IFI and AFTAH.)

Non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that with only rare exceptions, your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make GS-13 (currently $94,610) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $111,801) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $131,508) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $161,900) by age 40.  Extremely few federal employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran make the aforesaid deadlines.)

My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete a) 1966-1968 while I attended UIC, b) weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and c) the summer of 1969.

Because of that, a) 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; b) 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; and c) my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

WASHINGTON POST
— Federal employees’ charitable giving reflects worry; reciting oath on video reflects pride and Trump counterpoint – Joe Davidson  (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. Their top priority is to hire, to retain, and to promote Democrats, and especially Democrats who are minority, female, and/or younger. Of course, they are anti-Trump, and their giving more money to ACLU, SPLC, NRDC, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, and National Park Foundation proves it.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/09/11/feds-charitable-giving-reflects-worry-reciting-oath-on-video-reflects-pride/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Oath for Federal Employees: “I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” . . . An analysis of contributions to the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), an umbrella charitable effort for federal employees, demonstrates “federal donors clearly reacted to the election of Trump in 2016, providing several charities with a sizable Anti-Trump bounce in their pledge results,” Marshall Strauss, chief executive of the Workplace Giving Alliance, said in an email Friday to his board of directors. The Alliance is a coalition of CFC organizations and reports on federal employee giving. “For example,” Strauss continued, “the American Civil Liberties Union [Foundation] was up almost 400 percent in comparison with its 2015 CFC results, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) saw its pledge number jump by 345 percent, and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) saw its pledge total jump 180 percent.” These organizations have taken principled stands against Trump’s harmful policies: ACLU says Trump wants to “Enshrine a Business Right to Discriminate Into the Constitution.” SPLC President Richard Cohen wrote about “the malignant bigotry at the heart of President Trump’s agenda.” NRDC tracks “Trumps attacks on the environment.” Planned Parenthood, the Sierra Club and the National Park Foundation also received significantly more in donations, according to the report.)

http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2017-09-10/tom-kacich-trump-supporter-joins-run-against-rauner.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And Ray Tranchant of Catlin is the lieutenant governor candidate on what may be an even longer shot: Chicagoan William Kelly’s intraparty challenge to Gov. Bruce Rauner. Tranchant is a Navy veteran and a supporter of President Trump who said he has never run for office before. The two big reasons he wants to serve with Kelly, he said, are fiscal responsibility and illegal immigration. Tranchant, whose 16-year-old daughter Tessa was killed by an illegal immigrant from Mexico in an auto accident 10 years ago in Virginia Beach, Va., said he is particularly upset by Rauner’s decision last month to sign the Illinois TRUST Act, which restricts local law enforcement from collaborating with federal immigration agents to detain anyone unless the federal officials have a warrant. Tranchant called the legislation “a sanctuary bill” that would protect hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in the Chicago area who now, he predicted, will move downstate. “We believe that they’re going to get out of there (Chicago), mainly come here, look for jobs and get aid and live in a better and safer environment,” said Tranchant, who said he “is in his early 60s” and had retained his Illinois residency even while in the military. “That’s going to cost our schools and services a lot of money. We don’t think it’s good.” Kelly, a conservative radio host in the Chicago area, called Rauner “the new Judas of the Republican Party” for signing the immigration legislation. “Today, unlike Bruce Rauner, we stand proudly with President Trump and the federal government,” Kelly said last week. “I will recall Rauner by defeating him in the 2018 GOP primary and repeal Illinois’ sanctuary state status by executive order. As governor, my first act will be to recognize the federal government’s exclusive power to make and enforce immigration law.” Tranchant said he also was upset with Rauner for allowing the state to operate without a budget for more than two years. “That hurts the state of Illinois as well,” said Tranchant. “Many of my friends who are Democrats voted for him because they wanted a change and they didn’t want the same old incestuous relationship that (former Gov.) Pat Quinn had with (House Speaker Michael) Madigan. We figured this guy was just like Trump, would make a difference, and so far, all he’s done is isolated himself and refused to do things.” In order to get on the ballot, Kelly, Tranchant and their allies will have to collect 5,000 to 10,000 signatures between now and early December. “We’ll get the 5,000 signatures,” Tranchant deadpanned. “I’ve got that many friends on Facebook.”)

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.)

Ever-increasingly, the more of the following demographics that you have, the sooner, if not already, that anti-Trumps will say that you are a Nazi: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, and if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Needless-to-say, to call someone a Nazi is to call for that person to be killed figuratively, if not literally. What should Americans who have the aforesaid demographics do to defend themselves? Many have bought and will buy more firearms and ammunition. They will not end up like the Jews did during the 1930s and 1940s.)

I used my 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint, my 1968 Oldsmobile 442, and my 1969 Dodge Charger SE to deliver mail in Park Forest 1966-1969.

DETROIT FREE PRESS
— Not on the agenda at Michigan Republican Party Mackinac conference: President Donald Trump – Paul Egan  (DIERSEN: Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser says “As a party, we support the president — we support his policies.” But what if Trump goes against the Republican Party platform?  Republicans should always support the platform. If you do not like certain planks in the platform, you should try to get them changed. Of course, those who reject the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Republican Party platform work against me. Of course, those who promote dependency on government and charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, and even worse things work against me.  They say that “the platform is the problem.”)
http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2017/09/09/michigan-republican-party-mackinac-conference-president-donald-trump/645799001/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump has been using Twitter to attack Republican legislative leaders over their failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Last week, Trump blindsided members of his own party when he cut a controversial deal with the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and fund hurricane relief. Distractions resulting from an ongoing and wide-ranging investigation by special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller threaten to further derail the Republican agenda, including the promise of corporate and personal income tax cuts. Controversies surrounding the Republican president are captivating the country — and the world — and have some Republicans worried about how they will affect party fortunes in congressional midterms and other elections in 2018. But don’t look for those topics to be on the agenda when about 2,000 Republicans from Michigan and across the nation gather on Mackinac Island Sept. 22-24 for the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference — a major policy confab held every two years. Party leaders say the conference will be all about unity, and the focus will be on what’s happening in Michigan — not Washington, D.C. “As a party, we support the president — we support his policies,” Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser said in an interview. “I don’t think there’s going to be any kind of controversy.” Tax reform, repeal and replace of Obamacare, immigration and infrastructure “are important and worthy of conversations,” said state party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson. But “unfortunately, we have a limited time for the conference, so there wasn’t a space for panels on those issues.” In addition to Gov. Rick Snyder, other state Republican leaders and members of Congress, speakers will include Trump loyalists such as Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and U.S. Education Secretary and west Michigan businesswoman Betsy DeVos. Panel sessions will feature topics such as the influence of women in the party, successful Michigan business leaders, the news media, and “Michigan leading the nation” in terms of domestic policies and job creation. Though he comes from a neighboring state and is maintaining a high profile after his unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, don’t look for Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a frequent Trump critic, to be taking a ferry across the Straits of Mackinac. The emphasis on unity is reflected in the conference theme, “Together We Rise.” The agenda, which is still being finalized, also includes former Michigan Gov. John Engler and former Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz, who chaired the House oversight committee and is now a Fox News contributor. Organizers had hoped U.S. Vice President Mike Pence would be among the speakers, but he is unable to attend due to security complications, Weiser said.)
