DAILY HERALD
— Proft: Without suburbs, GOP will never regain majority in Illinois – Kerry Lester  (DIERSEN: Proft “holds DuPage County Republicans responsible for loss of influence at the polls.”  What does Proft say to Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, and RINOs in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), the DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) who hold me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails responsible for all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000?  I could stress a) that I have never been a MTRCC officer, a DCRCC officer, or an IRP officer and b) that I have never been an IRP State Central Committee member.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161026/news/161028959/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton native Dan Proft has emerged as a key behind-the-scenes player in Illinois politics as the head of Liberty Principles PAC, a political action committee funneling millions of dollars to Republicans in races across the suburbs and state. Proft, a conservative radio host and 2010 candidate for governor in the Republican primary, has about $4 million in cash on hand to spend on campaigns, according to the most campaign finance filings with the Illinois State Board of Elections. In recent weeks, that has meant more than $250,000 spent in radio and television ads supporting Park Ridge Republican Mel Thillens’ campaign for 28th state Senate, more than $175,000 for ads supporting Republican Heidi Holan of Glendale Heights in her campaign for 46th House, and more than $225,000 on ads in support of Dawn Abernathy of Mundelein in her campaign for 59th state House, among others. Proft recently created political mailings designed to look like newspapers, including the Lake County Gazette and DuPage Policy Journal, holds DuPage County Republicans responsible for loss of influence at the polls, and offers some support of Donald Trump’s bid for president. Here’s a conversation with Proft, edited for length. . .Q. Do you see the DuPage GOP stronghold as eroding?  A. Clearly, DuPage is less competitive than it was when I was growing up. It’s self-inflicted wounds. It’s our own bad actors and bad actions. It’s cycle after cycle of bad candidates in bad races and bad political leadership and being junior partners to the Democrats and some people think DuPage should be run like a mini Cook County. Think about this: In 1998, George Ryan got 72 percent of the vote in DuPage County. And in 2010, Bill Brady got 52 percent. For the second most populous county, most Republican county, that is an unbelievable amount of attrition in a relatively short period of time. When demographics change, you incorporate new people into the party. We didn’t do that, partly because we told people to wait your turn. It was an outdated system that pushed talent away and bred corruption and incompetence.)

LOYOLA PHOENIX
— Mock Border Wall Sparks Immigration Dialogue – Chris Hacker  (DIERSEN: I earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. How soon, if not already, will Loyola officially announce that it will only admit students who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors?)
http://www.loyolaphoenix.com/2016/10/mock-border-wall-sparks-immigration-dialogue/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Build the wall” has become a rallying cry for millions of conservative Americans who feel left behind by an increasingly diverse America. And “build the wall” is exactly what a group of Loyola students did, but for a very different reason than some conservatives might. “It isn’t about some wall hundreds of miles away,” said junior Addison Mauck, who organized the Mock Border Wall project that was displayed on Loyola’s West Quad from Oct. 18–20. “The purpose of this project is to humanize the topic of immigration and combat the negative rhetoric of the current political season.” The words, “No human being is illegal” and “We are a nation of immigrants,” were displayed on hand-painted banners that hung from the wall’s steel fencing. Despite the project’s supportive message, it garnered harsh criticism from undocumented students who felt they weren’t given a voice in the installation. About 20 signs that read, “Majority of undocumented students were not consulted for this,” were posted on the wall in protest. “We had a student [in] our organization who represented the community of undocumented students because we do not want to force anyone to speak about something that can be very personal and private,” Mauck said in response to the criticism. That student to whom Mauck referred, who wished to remain anonymous because of the sensitive nature of her immigration status, said her role in the project was not very significant. “It raises the question of why more students weren’t reached out to by anyone other than me, because I was not an organizer of the project,” she said. “Our community, both undocumented and immigrant, does have a voice on campus, and other people should not be speaking for us.” Loyola has taken steps to support that community of undocumented students. In 2001, Loyola became involved in the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which provides a pathway to citizenship for children of undocumented parents. Since 2012, about 150 students and faculty have completed “Share the DREAM,” which is training to become an ally for undocumented students, offered by Loyola’s Department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (SDMA), said SDMA director Joe Saucedo. The training is a three-hour long session that covers DREAM Act legislation, the barriers undocumented students face and the personal stories that those students bring with them, according to Joe Saucedo. “It’s important to know that these students’ status of being undocumented is one aspect of who they are, but it’s not all of who they are,” Saucedo said. “[The training] indicates to someone who may carry those identities that this is a safe space and there are people who get them and understand.”  In order to make it easier for undocumented students to attend Loyola, students voted in 2015 to include a $2.50 fee to each student’s tuition, creating the Magis Scholarship Fund, which provides free tuition and housing to five undocumented students every year. One recipient of the scholarship, sophomore Vince Garcia, said he appreciated Loyola’s support of undocumented students but revealed that he hasn’t received any communication or resources from the university since receiving the scholarship. He said his academic advisor hasn’t completed the DREAM ally training. “I’d say they should communicate better, because I always have questions about health insurance, for example, and I feel like I don’t have anyone to talk to,” said Garcia, a social work major who wants to help undocumented students like himself get a head start. “I think we’re getting better at this. Part of our job is taking stock of the barriers that students face, and we try to bring in the students themselves and ask them how they feel,” said Saucedo. “The most important thing we can do, as people with citizenship privilege who can vote, is to continue to elect politicians who will support these programs and keep the interests of undocumented students in mind.”)

AUTO BLOG
— Democrats see themselves as Teslas, Republicans as Corvettes  Respondents said Trump should drive an Escalade, Clinton a Mercedes GL-Class. – Danny King  (DIERSEN: The cars that you own say more about you than anything that you can say about yourself.  I have owned my 1972 Chevy Corvette since 1971, my 2005 Chevy Corvette since 2005, my 2016 Ford Mustang since 2016, my 2013 Dodge Charger R/T Max since 2012, my 2003 Chevy Cavalier LS since 2010, and my 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX since 1995.)
http://www.autoblog.com/2016/10/26/democrats-tesla-republicans-corvettes/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Given a tidy sum of money to spend on a vehicle, many Democrats would buy a Tesla Model S electric vehicle, while a lot of Republicans would choose a Chevrolet Corvette. That’s one politically quirky result of a poll taken by Swapalease last month, which linked respondent’s political preferences to car choices. About 2,500 people participated in the unscientific, opt-in survey. When asked what kind of car best suited their personalities, Democrats were most likely to choose the Tesla, while Republicans saw themselves as ‘Vette-like. The Tesla/Corvette dichotomy also split down gender lines, as many men wanted Corvettes (no shock there) and women preferred Teslas. Other cars that registered on the “personality” list were big sellers such as the Honda Accord and Ford F-150 as well as the Hummer and the Chevrolet Volt. Take a look here for Swapalease’s data from the survey results. Granted, the results of the poll were tilted a bit, as the respondents were two-thirds male, while Republicans outnumbered Democrats by a 3-to-2 margin. When guessing which cars the presidential candidates would prefer to drive, the respondents said Republican candidate Donald Trump would drive a Cadillac Escalade, while Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would choose a Mercedes-Benz GL Class. With the survey pool leaning Republican, 39 percent of those polled said they would vote for Trump, 36 percent would choose Clinton, and the rest would choose the always-elusive “Someone Else.” On that note, when given various choices to describe the “personality of this year’s election,” a third of those polled said “a driverless car.” As for how long the respondents said they’d keep their cars, most ranged from 21 to 36 months. Which is quite a bit shorter than a presidential term. Even with the unscientific methods at use here, we can perhaps learn a little something, since the connection between electric cars and Democrats has been seen before. But, naturally, we know that Republicans can like Tesla, too. Some of them even buy five of them. They just might be outliers.)

http://www.bizjournals.com/chicago/news/2016/10/25/how-gov-rauner-salary-compares-to-his-peers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Public payroll data from all 50 states indicates that the average U.S. governor earns $137,415 per year in salary, with variances ranging from a low of $70,000 to a high of just under $200,000 per year. By those measures, the average governor’s pay is nothing to slouch at — especially when considering that the median household income in the United States hovers around $52,000 per year. However, it does pale in comparison to the eight-figure paydays that are increasingly common among private-sector CEOs, many of whom oversee far-smaller budgets and workforces relative to the typical state governor. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, who has been in office since January 2015 and oversees an annual state budget of $38.6 billion, is expected to earn $177,412 this year, which puts him at No. 5 among the 50 state governors. His pay is at 129 percent of the national average. But it must be noted that Rauner forgoes an annual salary from the state.)

The demonstration began at a key bridge on campus, where the protesters made a human chain to prevent white people from crossing, instead directing them to “go around” by trudging across the stream. Later, the activists turned their ire against an on-campus store leased to a private company, posting a fake “eviction notice” on the building threatening that “community action will continue to escalate” if the space is not vacated immediately.)

THE HILL
— Federal employees shun Trump, give big money to Clinton – Jonathan Swan  (DIERSEN: If I was still a federal employee, because of their hatred of Trump and because of their hatred of my demographics, my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworker, and subordinates would have killed me by now figuratively, if not literally.)
http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/302817-government-workers-shun-trump-give-big-money-to-clinton-campaign
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Federal government employees are opening their wallets to help Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump on Nov. 8. Of the roughly $2 million that federal workers from 14 agencies spent on presidential politics by the end of September, about $1.9 million, or 95 percent, went to the Democratic nominee’s campaign, according to an analysis by The Hill. Employees at all the agencies analyzed, without exception, are sending their campaign contributions overwhelmingly to Clinton over her Republican counterpart. Several agencies, such as the State Department, which Clinton once led, saw more than 99 percent of contributions going to Clinton. Employees of the Department of Justice, which investigated Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State, gave Clinton 97 percent of their donations. Trump received $8,756 from DOJ employees compared with $286,797 for Clinton. From IRS employees, Clinton received 94 percent of donations. Federal government employees overwhelmingly backed Clinton’s presidential campaign no matter which agency The Hill analyzed using Federal Election Commission data covering donors giving more than $200. Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said these donation patterns are more evidence of the “rigged system” favoring establishment candidates like Clinton over outsiders like Trump. The Trump campaign has been citing lopsided media donations to Clinton — though there’s no evidence they’re coming from reporters covering Trump — as further evidence that the game is fixed. But David Schultz, a Hamline University Professor of Political Science, said government employees have historically favored Democratic candidates over Republicans both in their voting habits and political contributions made in their personal time. Under the Hatch Act, federal government employees are banned from engaging in political activities, including making campaign contributions, during work hours. “Government employees are, on balance, more moderate or more liberal as opposed to the general population,” Schultz said. “Not across the board, but in general.” Government employees are “more likely to believe in government as opposed to, let’s say, a privatization program,” he added, “programs that we would view as hostile to government.” Republicans typically campaign on promises to slash government payrolls, which helps explain why recent GOP presidential candidates have received the smaller share of donations from government workers. Yet while Republicans usually do worse than Democrats, Trump appears to be doing especially poorly in fundraising from government employees. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, received 14 percent of donations from the same group of agencies surveyed for Trump. Trump received just 5 percent. Romney got close to $300,000 more from these same departments’ employees than Trump has four years later. Comparisons to previous presidential candidates are of limited value, since they took public funding for their general election campaigns. Trump might have had a chance to do better than Romney. He discarded much of Republican orthodoxy during his primary campaign, which could have led some federal employees to believe that he’d be more amenable to big government. He vowed, for example, to leave massive social welfare programs virtually untouched. But Trump also constantly attacked federal institutions. During his primary campaign, he described the federal government as a corrupt, bloated body run by “very, very, stupid people.” Trump vowed “tremendous cutting” of the government in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in January and singled out the Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency as agencies he’d slash dramatically if not outright eliminate. Agency employees have likely taken note of Trump’s hostile rhetoric. In the Department of Education’s case, that included Trump’s pledges to hand over control to the states and to fight tooth and nail against Common Core standards. From Department of Education employees this cycle, Trump received three donations totaling $220. Clinton received 724 donations for more than $74,000. In all, she received 99.7 percent of donations from employees of the department. Donations from the State Department, which Clinton ran from 2009 to 2013, were even more slanted in her favor. State Department employees gave Trump 39 donations, for $4,652. Over the same time period, they gave their former boss 2,518 donations, for $425,525. Throughout his campaign, Trump has portrayed himself as a strongman who would toughen up America’s defenses — both militarily and at the border — and who would take care of veterans. It’s probably no coincidence, therefore, that Trump performed best in donations among employees of three agencies: Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs. But even employees of these more Trump-friendly agencies have overwhelmingly contributed to Clinton’s campaign. From Defense employees, Trump received 341 donations for $43,575. Clinton got 2,392 donations for $225,560, giving her 84 percent of the money. From Homeland Security employees, Clinton got 90 percent of the donations, and from Veterans Affairs she took 88 percent. Romney performed significantly better than Trump with employees at all three agencies, receiving, for example, $98,153 from Defense employees, which amounted 21 percent of donations. During the Republican primaries, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said, “Let’s create a little bit of a recession in Washington, D.C., so that we can have economic prosperity outside of Washington.” Fear of such plans might be the truest explanation of these uniformly lopsided donations. Schultz, the Hamline professor, said “self-preservation”— particularly for workers engaged in public sector unions — probably motivates their political giving. “This means support for their jobs,” he said. “Clinton, for the most part, is going to be probably a continuation of more or less what Obama is.” Federal government employees, he said, are likely “more willing to give to somebody who would be more predictable in terms of supporting their livelihood, their jobs, as opposed to somebody who might be less predictable.”)

— Cook County Democrat boss making a list and checking it twice – Dan Mihalopoulos
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/mihalopoulos-county-dem-boss-making-a-list-and-checking-it-twice/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It ain’t easy being a Chicago political boss these days. Just ask Joe Berrios, the supposed leader of the party that dominates Cook County. Berrios expected each committeeman from Chicago’s 50 wards and the 30 suburban Cook townships to “buy a table” at the county Democratic Party fundraiser on Oct. 13. Some have not done their share, prompting a terse letter from county party headquarters. In an email obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, a top Berrios aide comes off sounding more like the Nicor collections department than a political boss’ enforcer. “You are receiving this notice because you did not support our 10/13 fundraiser by purchasing any tickets,” wrote Jacob Kaplan, the county Democrats’ executive director. “The Chairman asked all committeemen to support the event by purchasing 10 tickets (at $200 each).” I talked to one committeeman who’s openly bucking Boss Berrios and three others who said they were withholding payment to the party but didn’t want to be publicly identified. Berrios is threatening to out the scofflaws at Friday’s meeting of party brass at the Erie Cafe, a Near North Side restaurant where the chairman’s own political funds have dropped more than $70,000 in the last few years. Kaplan warned the committeemen: “A report on the October fundraiser will be produced at our committeemen pre-election meeting next Friday (10/28) at Erie Cafe. Several committeemen have requested a list of committeemen who have not supported the party’s October fundraiser. If you do not want to be on this list, please reply and let us know how many tickets you will be sending a check into the party for.” Kaplan would not name the committeemen who have not complied with the boss’ fundraising request. Nor would he tell me which of the nice committeemen requested a list of the naughty. “There’s about 15 or so holdouts,” Kaplan said Tuesday. “Some [contributions] may come in by Friday.” Kaplan acknowledged that “it’s not like the old days,” when a Cook County Democratic boss such as Dick Daley could growl an order and every committeeman would heel instantly. “We just ask everybody to contribute something they can afford, even if it’s just one ticket, to share the burden of keeping the party going,” Kaplan said. Many committeemen already paid their share, or even gave much more than what was sought, according to campaign-finance reports. The party reported getting $10,000 from two campaign funds controlled by 14th Ward boss Ed Burke, while John Daley’s 11th Ward Democrats contributed $2,000. In June, the county party organization got $25,000 from Toni Preckwinkle, the County Board president who’s also 4th Ward committeeman and an executive vice chairman of the county Democrats. But 1st Ward Ald. and Committeeman Proco Joe Moreno says he won’t give a dime. He noted that Berrios, Kaplan and other county party officials helped a candidate who tried to unseat him in the committeeman’s race earlier this year. In 2014, Moreno supported a successful challenger against Berrios’ daughter Toni, who had been a state representative. “I have a strong, powerful, progressive ward organization,” Moreno said. “I don’t need to give money to his a– to work against me.” Moreno said he’s considering running against Berrios for the chairman’s day job as county assessor. Another committeeman, who asked not to be identified, said of Berrios, “Why give him money? I don’t understand. He hasn’t done anything for me.” Berrios may manage to placate them. But the only person he really must be sure to please is the true boss — the state party chairman and Illinois House speaker, Mike Madigan. If the fundraising request had come from Madigan, there’s little doubt all 80 committeemen would pull out their checkbooks as quickly as the Erie Cafe’s waiters hustle to serve Berrios.)

CAMPUS REFORM
— Free-tuition activists stoked over arrests for blocking Michigan Ave – Amber Athey
http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=8302
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three University of Chicago students were arrested during another “Moral Mondays” event in May that also targeted Griffin, suggesting he was responsible for the budget crisis in Illinois. “I did this in protest of the budget crisis being inflicted on Illinois by Gov. Rauner, a man financed by billionaire Ken Griffin, who makes $90,000 an hour,” one protester wrote, according to the Maroon. Even though the students expressed disgust with the budget crisis in May, they still demonstrated vehemently in favor of free tuition, claiming students only have to pay for school because billionaires are not paying their “fair share.” One sign at the protest read, “Bruce Rauner, Ken Griffin, and IL tax dodgers: Pay up for free higher ed,” while another said, “Make LaSalle St. pay, not the 99%.” “Griffin paid $300 million for one painting. Wonder how many student artists that could’ve sent to college?)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/10/25/are-you-a-woman-looking-for-a-top-job-try-the-federal-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For every chair occupied by a woman in the corporate C-suite, six are filled by a man. In the federal government, it’s 1 out of every 3. Women are gradually advancing to the highest levels of government, where they now represent 33.7 percent of the leaders known as senior executives. These are the mostly career managers who carry out the mandate of the White House, occupying key roles just below top presidential appointees. In the civilian world, they’re the generals and admirals who run their agencies day-to-day. Women and men have not reached parity in the top ranks of government. But among the 7,187 career senior executives, they’ve reached pay parity, with women getting a slight edge. Their $175,451 average salary is $479 more than men’s.  Women have climbed further than their male counterparts at private companies, where just 16 percent of executives are women, according to an analysis by McKinsey & Company, working with the Partnership for Public Service. The Government Accountability Office, a little-known agency that acts as the government’s fiscal watchdog, has quietly cultivated a culture that has helped women thrive. The result? Women make up 41 percent of the senior executives there, substantially above the government-wide average. The GAO has what’s best described as an unglamorous mission: It audits government programs for Congress to ensure that taxpayers get the most efficient and accountable spending for their money. The audits released this month include titles such as “Agencies Have Sound Procedures for Managing Exchanges but Could Improve Inventory Monitoring” (on nuclear material) and “Guidance Needed for Completing Required Impact Assessments Prior to Presidential Drawdowns” (on security assistance). Arcane as the work is, it gets results: Federal agencies act on about 80 percent of the GAO’s recommendations to improve their operations, even if some guidance takes years to be implemented. Yet the GAO is not just a good place to work (it consistently ranks near the top among midsize agencies in the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government annual rankings) but a good place to work for women. Of the agency’s 121 senior executives, 50 are women, including the general counsel and chief operating officer. “With the wide variety of work we’re doing, you want to have a representative workforce,” Eugene Dodaro, the comptroller general of the United States and GAO head, said in an interview. Government agencies have long prided themselves on helping their employees balance their work and personal lives. The GAO’s approach is more serious than most: day care on site at the Washington headquarters, a student loan repayment program, a generous telework policy — 65 percent of the staff worked from home one day or more per pay period last year — and a flexible relocation policy. When she was hired 26 years ago as an entry-level analyst right out of graduate school, Orice Williams Brown told herself she would do this for a few years until the financial markets, still reeling from a crash, recovered. Her first assignment was to investigate why the Internal Revenue Service was not using interest on municipal bonds that local governments had returned to the federal government. “I was totally hooked,” she recalled. She was promoted to senior executive in 2005, in charge of the team that audits financial markets and community investment. Five years ago, she was made a managing director. “The work is extremely appealing,” Williams Brown, 50, said. “It’s a family-friendly culture. I’ve seen people advance regardless of where they are in their personal life. I’ve seen people promoted who are out on maternity leave.” She said that by having employees work in teams with experts from different disciplines, the GAO puts a premium on collaborative skills and coming to collective decisions. “That’s one of the things women are really socialized to do.” For Susan Poling, the GAO’s stable leadership is a big factor in why she and other women thrive. The agency is not run by a political appointee whose face changes every four years, but by a nonpartisan civil servant who serves a 15-year term. Like many lawyers, Poling found that government gives women opportunities to advance without working the 70-and 80-hour weeks that are essential to making partner at corporate firms. “One of the things I bring is that I’ve been a working mother, and I have other men and women on my staff who are working parents,” she said. When she was hired to the GAO in 1990 from the Department of Education, she worked part time so she could spend more time with her young son. “But they didn’t shunt me over and not give me great things to do,” she said. Today, as a full-time senior executive, Poling supervises 156 lawyers. And at 68, she has no plans to retire anytime soon. “I’m still enjoying myself.”)

BIZ PAC REVIEW
— ‘NeverTrump’ revenge: Judge orders all pro-Trump material removed from Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum – Warner Todd Huston
http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/10/24/nevertrump-revenge-judge-orders-pro-trump-material-removed-phyllis-schlaflys-eagle-forum-403944
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even weeks after her passing, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly is suffering attacks from #NeverTrumpers and an activist judge. For what Schlafly’s son, Roger Schlafly, calls indecipherable reasons, low-rated Illinois Judge John B. Barberis has ordered Schlafly’s Eagle Forum to remove all pro-Trump articles which were posted to the group’s website after April 10, 2016. Schlafly spent the last year of her life supporting GOP nominee Donald Trump for the presidency. But she also spent it arguing with a small handful of board members of her own organization about that support. And now, in the weeks after her death, that small group of officers have taken Eagle Forum to court and have somehow succeeded in getting a judge to shut down the Eagle Forum political action organization Schlafly spent a lifetime building. All in an effort to eliminate information about the very candidate she fully supported. In the months before her passing, Phyllis fought off the small group of board members who tried to oust her from the very organization she built. And it was all because she supported Donald Trump against their wishes. In April she issued a video telling the world she was still in charge. But apparently the fight has now continued beyond her death. This month Judge Barberis issued an order filled with demands that Schlafly’s son, Roger, feels are if not illegal, at the very least un-American. The judge’s order seems to be compelling people not a party to the #NeverTrumpers’ lawsuit to do things. For instance, Roger was not named in any of the lawsuits brought against Eagle Forum by the handful of #NeverTrump board members, yet the judge’s order says that Roger must remove all pro-Trump items from the Eagle Forum website. Roger Schlafly, though, decided to take the whole website down and leave an explanation letter in its place because he can’t understand the order given by this #NeverTrump judge. The lawsuit is against Eagle Forum c4 but orders me personally to assist in transferring “Eagle Forum [c4] Property”. This is in spite of the fact that I am not a party to the case, and the court papers say that I am “not associated or affiliated with Eagle Forum [c4] in any way.” Roger also noted that the judge is demanding that he and others on the board refrain from advocating for any political positions as the #NeverTrump activists continue their lawsuit. I have never heard of any political advocacy organization being ordered not to express opinions on a web site. Not in the USA, anyway. I thought that the First Amendment prohibited that sort of thing. Roger goes on to say that the judge also told him he is not allowed to even talk to “third parties” about anything involving Eagle Forum. He then asks since when does any American need permission from a government to talk to a third-party about anything? He concludes explaining what he is doing with the site…  Complying with this order will not be easy. I am not sure exactly what was on the site on April 10. If I remove the pro-Trump articles, I will create dead links. If I explain the dead links, I might be accused of advocating something. I am reluctant to even post the court order, as that might be construed as advocating about litigation. I am not sure that the Eagle Forum c4 even has any property on the web site. Most of the site involves political works and activities of Phyllis Schlafly, and these have nothing to do with the plaintiffs in this lawsuit. I have tried to understand the their demands, but they have never even expressed any interest in the web site, as far as I know. Rolling back Phyllis Schlafly’s web site to purge her pro-Trump views is a dishonest and treacherous thing to do, and I refuse to do it, unless forced by the court. So I am shutting down the eagleforum.org web site for now. I am very sorry about this, and hope to have it back up when the legal issues are settled. So, who is this Judge John B. Barberis? He is the judge on the Illinois Third Judicial Circuit Court and is running to fill a vacancy on the Illinois Fifth District Appellate Court. But Barberis, running as a Republican, was not endorsed by the Illinois State Bar Association and was rated as “not recommended” in 2014.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: Amid frustration over election, suburban campaign volunteers fight on – Marni Pyke
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161024/news/161029429/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s important to get involved,” said James McCluskey, a 63-year-old Naperville Republican volunteer. “If you’re not informed … that’s the way government blows past the voters and if that occurs you have an uninformed public.” . . . 11:30 a.m. — Naperville  Tables are laden with coffee, doughnuts and campaign literature at the Lisle and Naperville townships’ GOP base in a strip mall. DuPage County District 5 Republican candidate Janice Anderson is distributing bags full of fliers to volunteers before walking precincts in Aurora. Anderson’s favored strategy is to find someone doing yard work and “connect with that voter. Tell them who I am. Look at them in the eye and talk about my race.” Voters aren’t happy, the Naperville Township trustee finds. “They’re angry about the mess in Springfield and what’s going on in the presidential race. I bring it back to what’s important to them … how to fix the roads and making sure we’re running the health department correctly.” When conversation turns to the presidency, Anderson, who backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the primary, says, “I’m for whoever can balance the budget.” Among the township foot soldiers is McCluskey. Monday to Friday, he’s an attorney. On weekends, he’s making closing arguments to voters. “You just have to be able to speak to them and present yourself,” McCluskey said. “You’d be surprised … some people just take your materials, a lot of people get engaged.” In fact, McCluskey enjoys the campaign trail so much, “I wish I’d done this at a younger age,” he said.)

DAILY ILLINI
— Illini Republicans fractured – Adam Kaz
http://dailyillini.com/news/2016/10/24/anti-trump-post-leads-scandal-resignation-illini-republicans/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump “Tipping Point”  But all this came to a head on Oct. 8, when Piper published a post on the Illini Republicans’ Facebook page denouncing Donald Trump’s lewd statements about women. Piper said he and the executive board agreed to post about the topic, but the executive board took issue with Piper’s actual post, which went live without their approval. While he noted some members thought the words against Trump were too harsh, Piper disagrees. “We could have gone much further and could have said many other negative things about him up to this point,” Piper said.  “Donald Trump’s recently revealed comments towards women are reprehensible,” the post stated. “On a campus that struggles to fight sexual assault, we find it absolutely necessary to condemn his words and actions. The Illini Republicans stand for the equality of all women and for all people to be treated in a fair and respectful manner.” The post has since been taken down. Correll credited Piper’s post as the tipping point. As the club was split on supporting Trump, Correll said it was inappropriate for Piper to bypass the executive board’s approval. A few days after the post, Menezes received a petition from the executive board asking her and Piper to step down. Menezes alerted Piper that the executive board accused him of withholding funds from the board and the treasurer by holding club money in a private bank account. Piper said these accusations were brought forth by executive board members Bernal, Brown, Elena Ahasic and Jonathan Heideman among others.  All four declined to comment.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s quite a rebuttal from the Democratic Party presidential nominee, in a private meeting with Black Lives Matter activists: During one part of the meeting, Clinton said that affirmative action had worked to which an attendee said, “You know affirmative action pretty much helps white women not people of color.”  “That is not my understanding. That is certainly not my understanding. At all. I would be happy to look into it, but that is not my understanding,” Clinton replied. The attendee was insistent and said, “it ultimately ended up benefiting white women.” “See I taught at the University of Arkansas Law School. And I taught a lot of black students who were admitted on affirmative action and who needed a lot of help,” Clinton replied. The Democratic presidential nominee added, “And they would not have been there but for affirmative action.”)

— Why you should vote for Donald Trump – Mark Fratella  (DIERSEN: Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform.  Trump is the Republican Party’s presidential nominee and he has pledged to defend and advance the Republican Party platform.  When you see articles posted on websites like this article that Mark Fratella has written, please email the hyperlink to me at
[email protected] so that I can include it in a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email.  If you seek or hold a government or political office as a Republican, you obligate yourself to help elect Republican candidates.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161022/discuss/161029680/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Fratella is a precinct committeeman in Addison Township and was an elected Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention for Illinois Congressional District 5. He also served on the RNC Credentials Committee and currently serves as the Trump Education Coalition Leader.)

— Despite its struggles, Acapulco still sparkles – Alan Solomon  (DIERSEN: Have you vacationed in Acapulco?  I vacationed there as well as in Mexico City, Jamaica, Hawaii, and the Bahamas in the early/mid 1970s with a fellow straight single male conservative Republican IRS employee.  My Democrat IRS superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were filled with envy and did not like that at all.  I could afford those vacations and I could afford to buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971, to buy a new town home in University Park in 1972, to buy a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in Chicago in 1974, to buy a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976, and to pay for tuition for graduate business and accounting courses at Loyola and DePaul because IRS hired me at the GS-7 level (currently $43,915) in 1971, promoted me to GS-9 (currently $53,717) in 1972, promoted me to GS-11 (currently $64,992) in 1973, and promoted me to GS-12 (currently $77,899) in 1974.)

— Take just one step forward on your career goals – Rex Huppke  (DIERSEN: When you were young, what were your career goals.  If you are a non-veteran White male federal employee, your career goal has to be making GS-13 ($92,632) by age 25, GS-14 ($109,463) by age 30, GS-15 ($128,759) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($160,300) by age 40, or your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of.)

— To grow size of Police Department, Chicago will need twice what is planned – Cecilia Reyes
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/data/ct-police-retirement-mayors-plan-20161002-htmlstory.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Tribune analysis of police pension fund data shows a large number of officers eligible for sweetened retirement benefits, an incentive known as “55 and out,” as part of their contract, which expires in June 30, 2017. There are 569 officers who have served for at least 26 years, the average time for retirees between 2011 and 2015, and are at least 55 years old. Officers 55 or older qualify for extended health care benefits, extending coverage, paid for by the department, until an officer is eligible for Medicare. There are 3,840 officers who have served for at least 20 years, at which point, pension benefits grow by about $2,000 each month, the pension fund estimates. Of eligible officers, 2,592 officers are older than 50, when their pensions start to be paid.)
— Presidential race drives auto industry issues home – Fred Meier
http://www.chicagotribune.com/classified/automotive/sc-clinton-trump-auto-industry-issues-autocover-1020-20161018-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The U.S. auto industry has been in the spotlight during the 2016 presidential campaigns, starting with the primaries. The hottest issue has not been about what automakers produce but where, thanks to the debate over free-trade deals including the North American Free Trade Agreement and the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership. History shows that the winner could end up having a big impact on what and how we drive. Past presidential milestones include interstate highways (Dwight Eisenhower), the first safety regulations and the 25 percent tariff on trucks (Lyndon B. Johnson), federal emissions rules and the 55-mph speed limit (Richard Nixon), fuel economy rules (Gerald Ford), the first Chrysler bailout (Jimmy Carter), the most recent industry bailout (George W. Bush and Barack Obama), and ramped-up emissions and fuel economy rules (Obama).)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, if you support Trump, Democrats call you a Nazi, and especially if you are German national origin, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, non-veteran, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.  To say that a person is a Nazi is to make it clear that you want Clinton to use the federal government to get rid of that person.)

http://www.sj-r.com/news/20161021/election-preview-state-workers-key-in-jimenez-delgiorno-99th-house-race
(FROM THE ARTICLE: State workers make up a significant part of the 99th House District that covers a large part of Springfield and western and southern Sangamon County. It’s no coincidence, then, that a state worker issue is playing a significant role in the race between incumbent Rep. Sara Wojcicki Jimenez, R-Leland Grove, and Democratic challenger Tony DelGiorno of Springfield.)
— 1,100 non-union state workers getting $3,016 bonuses – Doug Finke  (DIERSEN: In 1989, the Democrats who ran GAO started their pay-for-performance system a) to retain and to promote their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger and b) to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, without question, under that system, my Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers and never gave me any bonuses.)
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20161021/1100-non-union-state-workers-getting-3016-bonuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration is awarding one-time bonuses worth a total of between $3 million and $4 million to non-union workers whose bosses say are doing exceptional work. About 1,100 merit-compensation employees are in line to each receive a $3,016 bonus under the plan. “In an effort to recognize the hard work and dedication that non-bargaining unit employees demonstrate on a daily basis, coupled with the lack of systematic increases over the past several years, the state has authorized bonus payments for eligible non-bargaining unit employees,” Michael Hoffman, acting director of the Department of Central Management Services said in a memo to agency directors and others. “These bonuses do not make up for this unfair lack of wage increases for non-bargaining unit employees during previous administrations,” he said. “However, they do represent a commitment that, going forward, all employees will be treated equally, regardless of bargaining unit status.” Hoffman said the last across-the-board salary increase for non-bargaining unit employees was in 2005. The last merit pay program for them was in 2009. The memo says the bonuses are available to non-bargaining unit employees whose base salary as of July 1 was less than $100,000. Those earning more were not eligible. A number of other merit-comp employees were also excluded. Members of Rauner’s executive office were not eligible, nor were employees subject to Senate confirmation, those who left state employment before Sept. 16 and those who worked less than three months during the fiscal year that ended June 30. Rauner’s office said that left a potential pool of about 2,000 employees eligible for the bonus. In order to qualify, an employee had to receive an “exceptional” rating on his or her evaluation. Rauner’s office said about 1,100 employees got that rating. The size of the bonus was determined by adding all of the salaries of all non-bargaining unit employees making less than $100,000 a year, computing 2 percent of that and then dividing that amount by the number who actually qualified to receive it. That came to $3,016 for each of the workers who qualified. The administration has argued that a bonus system is cheaper than raises for the state in the long run because the payments are one-time and not built into a person’s base salary, and because they are not pensionable. The bonuses already have been issued to many, but not all, of the workers who qualify for them. The administration said it depends on how quickly individual agencies process them. Although the state is delaying payments to many organizations and vendors because of the traditional fall slowdown in tax collections, the bonus payments are being made. Rich Carter, spokesman for Comptroller Leslie Munger, said the bonus payments can’t be differentiated from regular payroll when agencies submit payroll information to the office for payment. “There’s nothing that says bonus on it,” he said. “They send us the payroll and we process the checks. As you know, we are required by court order right now to pay payroll on schedule.” In his memo, Hoffman said the bonus system is similar to one implemented in contract agreements the state has reached with 18 bargaining units representing state employees. Most of those workers belong to one of several Teamsters locals or trade unions. In those agreements, 2 percent of payroll was set aside to award performance bonuses. The administration and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents about 38,000 state workers, still have not agreed on a new contract. The administration wants the union to accept a four-year wage freeze while also imposing a performance bonus plan. Bargaining stopped in January when state negotiators said they believed the talks were at an impasse. The Illinois Labor Relations Board is expected to rule on the issue next month. An administrative law judge who held hearings on the issue said she believed the two sides had reached impasse on some issues, but should continue bargaining over wages and benefits. ASFCME had no comment Friday on the administrations bonus payments to non-union workers.)

WOWT
— Public losing interest in public service – NBC (DIERSEN: Many millions have not and will not seek a job with the federal government a) because the pay and benefits are terrible, b) because the advancement opportunities are terrible, c) because they lack required education, work experience, professional certifications, and/or professional licenses, d) because they cannot pass an employment examination, e) because they cannot pass a background investigation, f) because they cannot pass a physical examination, g) because they cannot take the demonization, denigration, and condemnation that comes with being a federal employee or federal retiree, and/or h) because they are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran and they know that the federal government discriminates against its employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.wowt.com/content/news/Public-losing-interest-in-public-service-397972461.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Public service employment include those who serve in the military and government jobs, but what if the newest class of job candidates doesn’t want anything to do with it? “Bring back this sense of civic idealism that you can make a difference,” says Steven Olikara. Millennials are shying away from public service. At least that appears to be the trend according to Olikara, a millennial and founding president of the Millennial Action Project. The organization’s goal is to bring American politics into a more inclusive and bipartisan age by using the talents of younger generations. “There’s this larger narrative that we have to combat which is that you can’t make a difference in public service,” says Olikara. “The levels of distrust continue to be high levels. Something like 80 percent of millennials don’t trust the government to do the right thing.” Olikara says recruitment and compensation are two huge issues when it comes to incentivizing young people. “There is a systemic problem, we need cultural change and I think the biggest thing I hear all the time is we need to be rewarding talent and rewarding results.” Lawmakers who are not millennials are well aware of this issue, so Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford and North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp held a hearing to examine just that. “We think some of the best missions in the country are in public service, we just need to figure out how we’re going to communicate that to millennials,” says Sen. Heitkamp. She says 31 percent of the federal government is eligible for retirement in 2019. She and Lankford agree that a new wave has to come in and soon. Lankford says with long hiring processes, nothing is fast these days. “Now, almost 100 days to be able to hire one federal employee. That’s a major problem. Most people aren’t going to sit around and wait if they apply for a job even if they want to be able to serve their fellow citizen.” “Hopefully, we can spark some larger public debate around how we can encourage and incentivize,” says Olikara. Among the opportunities young people have is a White House internship program. If you’d like to learn more about the opportunities, visit whitehouse.gov/participate/internships.)
