CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Take it from me — and my father — anti-white bias is not the problem – Alysia Tate  (DIERSEN: Who should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion?  According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, it should be those like me who are White, male, healthy, non-veteran, conservative, Republican, Protestant, German-American, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, those who are not poor, and those who have no dependents. In my defense, neither of my parents attended college, my father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and my mother never attended high school. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, did not buy a new car until he was 45, a 2-door bottom of the line Chevy, and died suddenly in 1969 when he was 47 and I was 21. My mother was a housewife and homemaker.)

I earned a bachelors degree in management from NIU in 1970, an MBA from Loyola in 1976, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, and a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.  I worked for IRS 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $79,563-$90,173.  I worked for GAO 1980-1997, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13, Step 1-10 levels, currently $94,610-$122,991.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20170821/naperville-man-pitches-tighter-requirements-for-school-finance-officials
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bill Eagan, a former chief school business official for Hinsdale High School District 86, says the district’s top money manager should be a certified public accountant or certified management accountant. Along with that requirement, he says, the person in that job should report directly to the school board. Eagan, a CPA and CMA who comes from a corporate accounting and finance background, has met with three suburban state representatives who are on a House committee about licensing, administration and oversight for elementary and secondary education. He said increasing the financial literacy requirements to be a chief school business official, abbreviated in education circles as CSBO, will help school districts operate more efficiently and keep more of their money in the classroom.)

— The Illinois Eclipse: It’s not about Aug. 21. It’s every day. – Editorial  (DIERSEN: How long have your ancestors been in Illinois?  All my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s and have been here ever since.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-edit-illinois-eclipse-springfield-economy-0820-story.html
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Face it: No one comes to Illinois for the weather or to climb mountains. People come — or came — for opportunity. But that once-thriving state has receded into the shadow. Why? Because while surrounding states add jobs, Illinois grinds private-sector concerns in its gears. The nation generated a 1.3 percent average annual growth rate from 2006-16, but Illinois managed just 0.4 percent, according to James Broughel of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. Wisconsin outstripped Illinois with a 0.7 percent rate, and Indiana’s was more than double this state’s, at 0.9 percent. In July, the state’s unemployment rate ticked up. That’s the same month that Springfield passed a 32 percent personal income tax hike — inviting more people and businesses to head for the exits. Thank you, Senate President John Cullerton and House Speaker Michael Madigan. And what about those promised reforms, such as overhauling workers’ compensation, that could persuade more businesses to come, stay or expand? Or pruning Illinois’ wildly overgrown local governments to ease taxpayer burdens — two of the items on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s pro-jobs agenda? What, say the ranking Democrats, us worry? We recently sized up this state’s economic competitiveness and quality of life in a series of measures. In capsule, Illinois leads the nation in the worst ways. You know about the lousy credit rating, the unfunded pension liabilities, the onerous regulations on employers. Once a colossus that overshadowed its Midwest neighbors, Illinois in eclipse can’t escape the shadow. Other states gain by offering a sunnier jobs climate. Wisconsin recently landed what could be a $10 billion Foxconn LCD panel factory that will employ as many as 13,000 people. How did Wisconsin prevail? By being close to Illinois but not Illinois. Foxconn sought to exploit Illinois’ assets — its transportation and logistical systems, its energy reliability — but avoid its ever-rising taxes, crushing public debts and never-ending political brink-dancing. Foxconn chose a state that does the basics, like pass a budget every year. In a state in eclipse, though, even that task is too difficult. In a state in eclipse, taxes rise with no offsetting reforms. In a state in eclipse, voters return the same failed pols to the legislature decade after decade in a triumph of naive hope over costly experience.)

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Rauner tells reporters to not question wife’s role in the administration – Doug Finke (DIERSEN: When Republican elected officials act against the Republican Party platform, overwhelmingly, it is because that is what their wife wants them to do.)
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20170819/statehouse-insider-rauner-tells-reporters-to-not-question-wifes-role-in-administration
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You could say Gov. BRUCE RAUNER was not a happy man last week. A couple of media outlets filed open records requests to get emails sent by first lady DIANA RAUNER on a state email account. It was not a question of trying to get emails sent on a personal account. One reason was to determine if the first lady had a hand in all of the recent staff changes, as many suspect. Anyway, according to Politico, the request was denied citing two exemptions in the state’s open records law. One exempts communication with an attorney that would not be revealed in court, and the other covers preliminary drafts, notes and etc. If you’ve used the Freedom of Information Act, you know that the preliminary drafts exemption can be used to conceal a whole lot of stuff. The news outlets did stories about the denials on Tuesday. The whole thing seemed to be on the governor’s mind Tuesday afternoon when he did an availability at the fair. “Reporters have been calling asking if my wife has been very involved in the staff changes that have gone on in my office over the last month or two,” he said. “I think the inquiries, the questions themselves are pathetic. I think they are terrible. I think it just shows how desperate my political opponents are to try to attack my through attacking my wife. I think it’s disgusting.” He went on to say he decides who is on his senior staff. Remarkably, he wasn’t asked a question about the issue, he just launched into it at the end of the availability.)
— Sam McCann – Doug Finke
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20170819/statehouse-insider-rauner-tells-reporters-to-not-question-wifes-role-in-administration
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The one Senate Republican who voted to override Rauner’s amendatory veto of the school funding bill was SAM McCANN of Plainview. It was not the first time McCann has voted against the wishes of the governor. Last week, Senate Republican Leader BILL BRADY of Bloomington was asked if McCann was still welcome in the Senate Republican caucus. “He’s a Republican. He’s welcome,” Brady said. “Everyone’s got to vote their district.” Brady said he was unhappy McCann didn’t give fellow Republicans a heads-up on how he would vote. But Brady was willing to forgive McCann if McCann thought he was voting how his constituents wanted. Their constituents are telling them to support the governor because as originally passed by the General Assembly, the education funding bill is a Chicago bailout that should be stopped. Wonder if McCann or his representatives have a better read on the district.)

Do you oppose age discrimination?  I do, but my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination. My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government increasingly demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being old as I failed to 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.

http://nypost.com/2017/08/20/why-rich-new-yorkers-are-hiding-their-wealth-and-privilege/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In her research for “Uneasy Street: The Anxieties of Affluence” (Princeton University Press, out Sept. 5), Rachel Sherman interviewed 50 New York-area parents of young children, whose household incomes ranged from $250,000 to $10 million and with assets totaling up to $50 million. These locals live pampered lives — with multiple high-end properties, teams of household employees and frequent, lavish vacations — but still, they do impressive mental gymnastics to avoid identifying themselves as truly rich.)

The White House said in a statement the first couple would not attend in order to “allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction.” This comes after members of a presidential arts and humanities commission quit Friday to protest Trump in the wake of his Charlottesville remarks. The members – some Obama appointees – said in a statement, “Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions,” they wrote in a letter to Trump. “We took a patriotic oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” “…Supremacy, discrimination, and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. We are better than this. If this is not clear to you, then we call on you to resign your office, too.”)

CONSERVATIVE REVIEW
— These are the mainstream conservatives on CNN’s ‘hate group’ list  (DIERSEN: Sooner or later, if your group does not promote the Democrat Party platform, the Libertarian Party platform, and/or the Green Party platform, CNN and SPLC will call your group a “hate group.”)
https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/these-are-the-mainstream-conservatives-on-cnn-hate-group-list
(FROM THE ARTICLE: CNN has published a list of “hate groups” currently operating in the United States, relying on an extremely partisan analysis from the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Several truly extremist groups populate the list, such as the Ku Klux Klan, New Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and others. But along with the neo-Nazi and Islamic extremist groups on the list, the SPLC has lumped in as “hate groups” mainstream, well-known conservative individuals and organizations who merely speak out about the threat of radical Islam. Here are some that were included on the list. . .SPLC/CNN BIAS  Since its founding, the SPLC has displayed an overt left-wing bias in attempts to smear conservatives as hateful bigots. The organization often turns a blind eye to leftist extremist groups, such as Antifa and Occupy Wall Street, while continuing attempts to tarnish the reputation of mainstream conservative groups that are supported by millions of Americans. By using the SPLC’s extremely biased list, CNN continues to showcase its partisan bias in favor of left-wing elements.)

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/18/world/asia/cambridge-university-press-academic-freedom.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the world’s oldest and most respected publishing houses, Cambridge University Press, has bowed to pressure from Beijing and removed sensitive content on its site in China. The content is published in China Quarterly, an academic journal run by the press. In a letter made public on social media on Friday, the editor of the journal, Tim Pringle, said Cambridge University Press had informed him that the authorities had ordered it to censor more than 300 articles related to issues like the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong and the Cultural Revolution. The publishing house’s site risked being shut down if it did not comply with the request, the letter said. In response to the government’s actions, the journal issued a statement expressing its “deep concern and disappointment.” “We note, too, that this restriction of academic freedom is not an isolated move but a further reflection of policies that have narrowed the space for public engagement and discussion across Chinese society,” the statement said. Dr. Pringle said in a telephone interview that Chinese academics, who had been publishing in the journal in increasing numbers, would suffer the most. “It’s not only a retrograde step in principle, but it affects Chinese scholars in particular” he said, because they will not have access to global scholarship on the country.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Rauner facing pressure from Downstate Republicans to veto ‘very reasonable’ immigration bill – Monique Garcia and Kim Geiger  (DIERSEN: It certainly seems like Rauner’s advisors are saying to him that he has to dump the “conservative wing” of the Illinois Republican Party and pander to Libertarians to win in 2018. Libertarians want open borders, pot, and prostitution. It certainly seems like his advisors are saying to him that the more that he dumps on conservatives, that is, on Republicans, that is, on Trump supporters, the more votes that he will get in 2018 from voters who are Libertarian, anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors. But the aforesaid are going to vote for the Democrat gubernatorial candidate no matter what Rauner or Trump do.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-trust-act-met-20170819-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But the governor also has faced intense lobbying in opposition from Republican Party’s conservative wing. . .The issue could figure into Rauner’s 2018 re-election bid, as the governor will need the support of Downstate voters, some of whom want to see immigration policy that cracks down on those who are in the country illegally. State Sen. Kyle McCarter, a Republican from Lebanon outside St. Louis, said that if Rauner does not veto the bill “this could be the last straw” for Downstate voters who have backed the governor. “There was a reason the president won so big in Downstate Illinois, this is one of those issues that we stood with the president on,” McCarter said. “I understand it’s a difficult decision for the governor to make, but he’s going to have to decide if this should be the priority, or meeting the basic needs of the legal citizens of Illinois.” McCarter said he has reached out to the governor’s chief of staff to encourage Rauner to veto the bill. “I think I can speak for downstate Illinois and most Trump supporters, this isn’t the direction that I want the country to go or the state to go,” he said. “We are a country founded by immigrants, but those were legal immigrants, and I think the last thing Illinois wants is to see a sanctuary state, and this moves us in that direction.” There are also concerns that the legislation could put Illinois crosswise with the federal government and in the crosshairs of the Trump administration’s attempted crack down on sanctuary cities. Also critical of the bill is Rep. John Cabello, a Republican of Mexican heritage who is a Rockford police detective and also co-chair of the Illinois Trump Victory fund. Cabello said the measure puts police in the position of choosing whether to uphold federal law or state law. “We can’t cherry pick which laws we are going to enforce, it doesn’t matter if this bill is signed into law or not, law enforcement will do what we have to do,” he said. “I think this bill is symbolic, no law enforcement officer is going to follow this bill.” The bill passed with mostly Democratic support. In the Senate, five Republicans voted for the Trust Act. In the House, only one Republican voted for the bill. Supporters of the legislation argue that it will help build trust between police and the immigrant community, and will give immigrants confidence that they can come forward to help police solve crimes without having to worry about being punished because of their immigration status. Cabello disputed that notion. “If people can’t trust law enforcement without this bill, they are not going to trust law enforcement with this bill,” he said.)

The cartoon was meant to be an illustration of the conservative group’s view on SB1, but critics said it injected a derogatory racial element into the ongoing debate over the education funding bill. – Natasha Korecki (DIERSEN: Who is responsible for keeping Governor Rauner and all the other Illinois Republican elected officials and party leaders up to date with Illinois government and political news and commentary?

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Paul Chabot, a Republican, ran in the fall for Congress from a part of California’s Inland Empire that was once reliably Republican. That was the best way, he figured, to revive a community he remembered from his childhood as being safer, more prosperous, with better public schools and less liberal politics. It was his final effort trying to make things work in California. Mr. Chabot lost by 12 points. By Thanksgiving, he, his wife, Brenda, and their four children were touring North Texas in a rented S.U.V. looking for a new home. In the language of political science, they were sorting. The Chabots left a part of the country where they believed they no longer fit in as conservatives for a new community where they felt sure they would. “I see it even more boldly — as escaping,” Mr. Chabot said from McKinney, Tex., where the family settled this year.)

GOVERNING
— These Governors Are Rich, But Are They Effective?  The wealthy are increasingly seeking their state’s highest office. Winning has been the easy part. – LOUIS JACOBSON
http://www.governing.com/topics/politics/gov-rich-governors-effectiveness.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2014, Rauner, whose money came from private equity, used his fortune to defeat incumbent Illinois Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. In the primary, Rauner spent $16 million and won by three percentage points in a four-way race. In the general election, he spent $54 million. “We’ve never had a candidate for governor in my 40 years watching politics who even came close to having Rauner’s financial resources,” says Bernard Schoenburg, a political columnist at The State Journal-Register in Springfield, Ill. “It enabled him to get his message across on lots of platforms.” . . . The poster child for difficult governorships, however, has been Rauner’s. His ongoing budget war with the Democratic-controlled legislature has drawn threats of junk bond status from credit ratings agencies and loss of university accreditation following two years of steep cuts and unpaid bills. “Rather than recognize that he had to deal with strong pro-labor Democratic legislative majorities in a blue state,” says Kent Redfield, a University of Illinois-Springfield political scientist, “he pushed a strong anti-union, right-to-work agenda from the beginning that unified all parts of labor against him.” And those weren’t the only enemies Rauner made, Redfield says: The governor “tried to hold the budget hostage to leverage his ‘Turnaround Agenda,’ which initially included tort reform and cuts in social services spending to health facilities in addition to anti-collective bargaining, worker’s comp reform and pension reform measures. This unified the major funders of the Democratic Party against him — labor, the trial lawyers, and the hospitals and nursing homes.” . . . In Illinois, at least two wealthy Democratic candidates are expected to run: J.B. Pritzker and Chris Kennedy. Given Rauner’s willingness to spend from his own pocketbook, a credible Democratic candidate who’s wealthy would have a huge leg up. “People think the race could cost each side a far-unprecedented $150 million,” Schoenburg says.)

If you get elected or appointed to a government office or a political office as a Republican in Illinois, you obligate yourself to defend and advance the Republican Party platform and the Illinois Republican Party platform.)

— ROSKAM: TRUMP’S COMMENTS ABOUT CHARLOTTESVILLE “NOT ACCEPTABLE”
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/08/roskam-trumps-comments-about-charlottesville-not-acceptable-.html
(FROM THE COMMENTS: Nancy Thorner said…I never thought I would have to speak unkindly about you, Peter, but you seem to have become unhinged by wanting to follow other Republicans who are too afraid to stand up for what is the truth, that there was violence on both sides, fearing backlash from a dishonest media who is poisoning the minds of the American people against Trump. I think it might be time for you to retire from politics. We don’t need spineless Republicans in office who can’t support Trump because you don’t wish to explain to your constituents how they are being lied to by the media,the Left, and by irresponsible and turncoat Republicans. I’m appalled by the two Bush presidents, but they never liked Trump in the first place because of Jeb’s loss. Regarding Ryan and McConnell, these establishment politicians must go. They have continually thwarted Trump at accomplishing all he has attempted to do since he was sworn into office. All I can conclude is that Republicans by supporting the Left with their condemnation of Trump, don’t care if they destroy this nation in the process. Don’t you understand how the Left, the Deep state, and other forces — led by George Soros — are doing all possible to discredit President Trump. It is George Soros who is sending the violent goon squads where ever needed to cause destruction and chaos, Peter.)

— Rauner names names — says Trump’s Virginia remarks ‘damage America’ – Tina Sfondeles  (DIERSEN: According to anti-Trumps, if you condemn what Trump says or does, you not only condemn Trump, you condemn everyone who voted for Trump.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/rauner-calls-trump-out-says-virginia-remarks-damage-america/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After months of refusing to even utter President Donald Trump’s name, Gov. Bruce Rauner on Wednesday called his fellow Republican out for remarks that “damage America,” saying he “vehemently disagrees with the president’s comments about the tragedy in Charlottesville.” The rare mention of Trump’s name came on Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair after reporters asked the governor about the president’s comments in New York on Tuesday that “both sides” are to blame for the violence in Virginia. “I vehemently disagree with the president’s comments about the tragedy in Charlottesville,” Rauner said. “I vehemently disagree with the president’s comments. We must stand together against hatred and racism and bigotry and violence and we must condemn those actions in Charlottesville in the strongest terms.” The governor was asked why he still would not mention Trump’s name. “I just said ‘president,’” Rauner said. “President Trump. I vehemently disagree with his comments. We have to condemn that sort of action those actions by frankly disgusting despicable white supremacist groups, we’ve got to call them that and we’ve got to condemn their actions.” Trump has sparked outrage with his response to the violent weekend  protests by white supremacist groups that ended in three deaths — a woman killed when a car plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters and two Virginia state troopers killed in a helicopter crash while doing surveillance. On Saturday, Trump said “many sides” are to blame.  Then after two days of criticism from Democrats and Republicans, he read a statement Monday declaring “racism is evil” and specifically describing the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists as “criminals and thugs.” But on Tuesday he reverted back  to his initial take on the situation, saying “very violent” counter-protesters in Charlottesville  — whom the president dubbed “the alt-left” — share in the blame. “You look at both sides,” Trump told reporters at Trump Tower in New York.  “I think there’s blame on both sides. And I have no doubt about it. And you don’t have any doubt about it, either.” Dating back to last year’s presidential campaign, Rauner has walked a careful line with Trump, distancing himself from the billionaire developer and reality TV star to avoid alienating moderate Republicans or independents in the blue state of Illinois. But Rauner has largely sidestepped harsh criticism to avoid a backlash from Trump supporters who also back the governor. For the most part, Rauner has steadfastly refused to even discuss Trump. In February, Rauner boycotted a dinner the president hosted for 46 governors at the White House during the National Governors Association meeting. Rauner left Washington early, rather than risk being photographed with Trump. Rauner had his own stumble responding to the Charlottesville protests. On Monday he condemned the “racism, hatred and violence” as “appalling” and “completely beyond anything that America should be about.” But the governor hesitated in calling it “terrorism.” He did so hours later — after saying he consulted with law enforcement — saying the Charlottesville tragedy was “absolutely an act of domestic terrorism.” Rauner showed no hesitation on Wednesday in denouncing Trump’s take on the situation. “What I care about is the comments damage America,” Rauner said. “We are all Americans. It doesn’t matter what party. It doesn’t matter who we vote for. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we stand for justice and fairness and equality. That’s what America is about and racism and bigotry and violence has no place in our society.”)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/democrats-republicans-finally-agree-think-tanks-cartoon-is-s/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An emotional state Rep. Jaime Andrade brought lawmakers to their feet on Wednesday in denouncing an Illinois Policy Institute cartoon that depicted a young African-American boy from Chicago begging for money for school from a wealthy white man with half empty pockets. The North Side Democrat denounced the cartoon as “s—,” prompting Democrats to rise to give him a standing ovation, with Republicans quickly joining in. The conservative think tank defended the cartoon, arguing it was not racist, but late Wednesday took it down from the organization’s web site, saying the controversy was a distraction from the real issue, “the failure of political leaders to address the root cause of our struggling education system.” The cartoon was intended to depict how Chicago doesn’t use TIF funds for education — amid the conservative think tank’s push to have Chicago deal with its pension mess outside of the school funding debate. Both the governor and the institute believe Chicago is using its TIF districts to hide property tax money, thus needing more money from the state. But the image sparked anger and emotion on the floor, from both sides of the aisle. The debate over the image began on Twitter when state Rep. Christian Mitchell, D-Chicago, called it a “Sambo” cartoon. The man in the cartoon is showing the child an empty pocket on his right, with “TIF $” coming out of his left pocket. The child is sitting on the floor with a backpack, a Cubs hat and holding a sign that reads “Need money 4 school.” “Are you saying that wealthy white businessmen are not using TIF to take money from black and brown kids?’ the Illinois Policy Institute tweeted in an exchange with Mitchell. Mitchell, in turn, argued that the group could have “drawn another kid. “You could have drawn an african american child without exaggerated features (ie lips),” he wrote. “But you made a different choice, one that links to a dark and troubled history,” Mitchell tweeted.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Rauner breaks Trump silence, criticizes president’s Charlottesville response – Rick Pearson (DIERSEN: According to anti-Trumps, if you condemn what Trump says or does, you not only condemn Trump, you condemn everyone who voted for Trump.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-bruce-rauner-republicans-fair-met-0817-20170816-story.html
(FROM THE RTICLE: After steering clear of discussing President Donald Trump or even uttering his name for many months, Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Wednesday issued a harsh denunciation of the president’s take on the deadly Virginia protest. “I vehemently disagree with the president’s comments about the tragedy in Charlottesville,” Rauner said. “We must stand together against hatred and racism and bigotry and violence and we must condemn those actions in Charlottesville in the strongest terms.” “What I care about, the comments damage America. We are all Americans. It doesn’t matter what party, it doesn’t matter who we vote for,” Rauner told reporters after arriving for Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair on a Harley-Davidson, his traditional method of entry. “What matters is that we stand for justice and fairness and equality. That’s what America is about. And racism and bigotry and violence has no place in our society.” Rauner’s pushback to Trump contrasted with a morning breakfast and an afternoon Republican rally where the governor didn’t mention the president’s much-criticized Tuesday remarks in which he equated neo-Nazi and white supremacist protesters with counterprotesters. The traditional Republican rally featured no Trump signs, though a vendor was selling red Trump-themed “Make America Great Again” hats. Still, the controversies swirling around the president hung over the festivities much like the rain clouds over the fairgrounds. Rauner’s Trump comments came two days after he initially told reporters in Chicago that he could not say that the death of protester Heather Heyer, who was mourned at Wednesday services after being struck Saturday by a car driven by a white supremacist supporter, was an act of “domestic terrorism.” Later, Rauner’s office issued a statement saying the governor “absolutely” believed the death to be domestic terrorism. The governor’s reticence in mentioning Trump or responding to his comments and programs dates back to at least March 2016, when Rauner said he would support the eventual Republican presidential nominee without ever saying Trump’s name. Later that month, Rauner told north suburban school children he was “horrified” by the rhetoric of the GOP presidential campaign without naming Trump. In addition, the governor notably skipped last year’s GOP national convention in Cleveland where Trump was nominated. Rauner’s cautious Trump strategy didn’t stop a federal super political action committee from airing ads last fall that aimed to connect Trump to the rest of Illinois Republicans. The unconventional president has presented a political conundrum for Rauner, the first-term GOP governor of a Democratic state who is seeking re-election next year. Rauner is actively seeking support from largely rural Downstate areas that backed Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton last year. But Rauner also must find a way to restore a base in the suburban collar counties that are a key area of support for a Republican running statewide. Though the collars traditionally lean Republican, all but McHenry County went for Clinton last year. By deciding to aggressively criticize Trump, Rauner may be abandoning an effort to try to find a middle ground that simply sought to avoid any mention of the controversial president, realizing that while more Downstate counties have been turning Republican, the number of voters there is far fewer than in the more populated Chicago suburbs. In addition, Rauner’s move against Trump also may be aimed at trying to regain support among crucial moderate suburban women. The governor could face challenges winning over that voting bloc following the budget and school funding disputes as well as his vow to veto a measure he once supported in concept to expand the availability of abortions under Medicaid and state employee health insurance. Rauner might not have much room for error. In 2014, he barely defeated a lackluster Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn by 4 percentage points, or roughly 140,000 votes, despite capturing every one of Illinois’ 102 counties save for heavily Democratic Cook County. On Wednesday, Rauner said the actions of neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville were “frankly, disgusting, despicable.” “White supremacists groups. We’ve got to call them that and we’ve got to condemn their actions,” the governor said. Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman, Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider, told reporters the weekend events in Virginia were “abhorrent.” But Schneider refused to respond to the president’s comments, at one point saying, “I’m not Donald Trump’s campaign manager. I don’t speak for the president of the United States.” Asked if Trump could hurt GOP chances next year, Schneider said, “I’m not Carnac and I’m not going to predict what’s going to happen in the future,” referring to the late TV host Johnny Carson’s character of a mystic soothsayer. But U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of Taylorville took on Trump’s comments head on. Davis was on the Alexandria, Va., ballfield when a gunman wounded U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana and two Capitol police during a June GOP practice for a charity softball game. “I hope the president clarifies his remarks once again, and I hope the president can be a voice of calm and a voice of reason at a time where we can come together and stop the hate and the vitriol that we see in the American political climate today,” Davis said. “Frankly, anybody that wants to carry a Nazi flag on American soil is not good people and I disagree” with the president. Across town, the Illinois House approved a resolution 105-0 condemning the acts of violence in Charlottesville as domestic terrorism and repudiating white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and any other group that espouses hate. To a breakfast audience of largely Downstate GOP county chairmen, Rauner assailed Chicago and its “political machine” and predicted Republican values would lead to the ouster of his chief political nemesis, Democrat Michael Madigan, as speaker of the House. “We stand for liberty, individual freedom. We stand for personal responsibility,” Rauner said. “We stand for limited government that allows the individual to define himself or herself and thrive. We stand for low taxes.” Those values, the governor contended, would result next year in a nine-seat pickup in the Illinois House, where Republicans currently hold 51 seats to 67 for the Madigan-led Democrats. “The battle ahead of us is tough — boy it’s just tough,” Rauner acknowledged, because “our system is so broken.” “We’re up against an incredibly powerful political machine in Chicago. They have dictated the terms in our state for decades and they haven’t even run their machine really for the benefit for the people of Chicago. Just look at the unemployment. Look at the terrible schools. Look at the violence in Chicago. Look at the taxes going through the roof in Chicago,” said the governor, once again using the politics of geography to attack the Democratic-dominated city. Democrats, Rauner continued, “don’t run the government for the benefit of the people of central Illinois, southern Illinois or northwest Illinois or the suburbs of Chicago either. We have a broken political system run by a political machine in Chicago that’s run for the benefit of politicians and their cronies,” he said. While Rauner criticized the president’s Virginia comments, it was Trump who helped the Illinois GOP score a net gain of four House seats last November. Republican candidates outpolled Democratic incumbents in Downstate counties where Trump was rolling up 50- and 60-percentage-point margins.)

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/16/twelve-memorials-democrats-racist/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If Democrats seeking the removal of historical memorials tied to racist history are serious, they should be tripping over one another to get in front of a camera and call for the removal of memorials and namesakes to Presidents Andrew Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Sen. Robert C Byrd. These five men had two things in common–all had a penchant for racism to one degree or another, and all were Democrats. Some of the memorials to them are monuments, some are groves, others are highways, bridges, colleges, and even cemeteries. Of course, the cemeteries ought not be disturbed, but they should be renamed if the Democrats are serious about rooting out the vestiges of racism.)
