— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG COLOR PICTURE: In helping kids select college, parents along for more than the ride – Kate Thayer  (DIERSEN: In 1970, I was the first of my ancestors to earn a college degree.  Neither of my outstanding parents attended college.  My father was the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma.  My mother never attended high school.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-first-generation-college-students-parents-met-20161205-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: From filling out forms and writing essays to building a resume and gathering letters of recommendation, applying to college is a rigorous part of high school. But for 16-year-old Bryan Dominguez, the stress is magnified. Unlike many of his peers at Buffalo Grove High School, he doesn’t have anyone at home who’s been through the process. The son of Mexican immigrants and the oldest of four children, Dominguez, of Wheeling, will be the first in his family to go to college. “The whole concept of college is very confusing in general to me and my parents,” he said. “All I know is my one goal in life is to go to college. Being the first person in my family … is something I hold very close to my heart.” Recognizing first-generation college students have unique needs, Arlington Heights-based Township High School District 214 developed a field trip for its students to tour two colleges with their parents as part of learning more about the entire process.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— How to Help Working People – Editorial  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the federal government overpaid me and gave me retirement, health insurance, vacation days, sick days, and other benefits that were too generous.  In my defense, a) I earned a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) I earned job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) I earned a job-related professional license when I was 33. Further, 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.nytimes.com/2016/12/05/opinion/how-to-help-working-people.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: THE GOVERNMENT AS MODEL EMPLOYER Mr. Obama has issued executive orders to raise pay and improve conditions at companies that do business with the government. The orders, which require contractors to pay employees at least $10.10 an hour, provide paid sick days and report wage-and-safety violations to procurement officials, have value beyond helping federal contract employees. They also set an example for the entire private sector to follow. As president, Mr. Trump will be free to ditch these executive orders. As a private employer, his own approach to low-paid labor indicates that model-employer orders would be the first to go. But in his new job, Mr. Trump will be the nation’s chief executive. Does he want to be known for lowering basic standards?)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Slamming the media may be all the rage in U.S. politics, but Chicago isn’t immune.  The morning after the presidential election, the Cook County Bar Association — Chicago’s pre-eminent organization for black lawyers — issued a curious, stinging rebuke of veteran CBS2 investigative reporter Pam Zekman for a report in which she all but accused an elderly black judge of malingering to collect $250,000 in disability payments. In a strident four-page missive posted on the bar association’s website, the group complained that Zekman exhibited a “complete lack of journalistic and moral integrity” in her Nov. 4 report about Judge Arnette Hubbard.)

CANADA FREE PRESS
— Indoctrinating the Young in Hate Factories  Our education system has created a multitude of young, inexperienced, poorly educated, indoctrinated minds, speaking as with authority…scary! – Ray DiLorenzo
http://canadafreepress.com/article/indoctrinating-the-young-in-hate-factories
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you want to learn to hate America, your nearest public school or college is waiting for you.  If it is a university you want to attend, don’t worry about the cost, the government (taxpayers) will pick up the tab as student loans are about to be forgiven to the tune of $108 billion and will probably go much higher. Our schools across the country have created and nurtured millions of godless, America-hating, angry, statist, whiny, cry babies and we will all be paying dearly for it, now and in the future. In McAllen, Texas, teachers tried to force a teenager to sing the Mexican national anthem and recite the Mexican pledge of allegiance.  She refused saying it was against her beliefs.  She was subsequently thrown out of the class and given a failing grade for the day. University of Hawaii professor, Huanani-Kay Trask has taught students “We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is.  The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it.” University of Southern California professor, Darry Sragow, teaches hate in his Regulation of Elections and Political Finance class, telling them “Republicans are stupid, racist losers,” and that they are “angry old white people.” University of Rhode Island history professor, Erik Loomis, tweeted, “I want Wayne LaPierre’s (NRA President) head on a stick.”  He asked, “Can we define dues to the NRA as contributing to a terrorist organization?” Scott Compton, an English teacher at Chapin High School, Chapin, SC, was put on administrative leave after he allegedly threw an American flag on the floor and stomped on it in front of his students.  He chose to resign.  He probably teaches at a college now. A geography teacher at Lumberton High School in Texas encourages students to dress in Islamic clothing and actually instructed them to refer to the 9/11 hijackers as “freedom fighters.”  They were also taught that the Holocaust was not genocide.  John Valastro, the superintendent of the school district, told Fox News that the teacher did absolutely nothing wrong. The schools may defend themselves by saying they teach critical thinking…hogwash!  They are intolerant of any opinions contrary to their own and the student with the guts to stick to his/her values risks paying dearly in poor grades and harassment. What do the students have to say?  A new video is circulating asking college students if they prefer Castro or Donald Trump.  Every student in the video struggled with the answer.  One student said, “Well that’s a tough question.”  Another student said, “If Donald Trump’s administration is what he said it would be, then Fidel Castro would have been the better leader to the Cuban people than Donald Trump will be.”  Another student: “I feel that he really changed Cuba in so many ways that really made possibilities for the Cuban people nearly endless.” Our education system has created a multitude of young, inexperienced, poorly educated, indoctrinated minds, speaking as with authority…scary! This problem is not limited or unusual.  It has become widespread and is now a threat to the very framework of our country and society.  Jihadists and Socialists/Communists can access considerable encouragement and support from many of our young people today.  So much so that there should be concern for a growing 5th column ready to strike at our very heart.  We had better take heed.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Chicago’s deadliest neighborhoods get greenest cops – Mick Dumke and Frank Main  (DIERSEN: When were you green?  When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates treated me like I was extremely green.  They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.  I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $77,899-$88,286. Much of the work that I did for IRS during those 5 1/2 years was similar to what I did for GAO including interviewing, investigation, data analysis, and report writing. I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979. I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul.  I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.  Virtually all of my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats who GAO had hired straight out of college. They had little or no work experience outside of GAO.  They wanted every GAO hire to start at the bottom like they did.  They had an extremely low opinion of executive branch employees and of union members like I had been at IRS for almost 9 years.  They exhibited an extremely low opinion my knowledge of IRS that I had gained by working for IRS for almost 9 years. They stressed that GAO had required me to accept an $18,459 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Froot Loops and Frosted Flakes aren’t normally the kind of brands to get caught in the political crosshairs. But in the aftermath of a combustible election, Kellogg cereals and a growing number of consumer brands have suddenly found themselves the unexpected target of boycotts and hot-tempered rhetoric. Kellogg said this week it would pull advertising from Breitbart News, the far-right web site that its critics say trades in racist and sexist content. In response, Breitbart called on readers to boycott the company, devoted a chunk of its front page to stories about Kellogg or the boycott, and sparked a social media outcry. Consumers on both the right and the left piled in, saying they would either stop buying the company’s products — or conversely, stock up on them. The maker of Eggo waffles and Pop-Tarts is only the latest American corporation caught in the crossfire. In the weeks since the election, companies have navigated a sharply politicized environment, one that has entailed calls for boycotts, explosive social media responses to executive comments and thorny interactions between front-line workers and their customers. “I’ve never seen anything like this before, where companies find themselves so open to attack for their points of view or their speech,” said Leslie Gaines-Ross, chief reputation strategist for the public relations firm Weber Shandwick. “Companies are now much more in the fray and seen as political targets.”)

I had lots of trouble surviving at GAO after my Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the manager who had hired me in 1980, had got me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and had promoted me in 1986.)
http://federalnewsradio.com/workforce/2016/12/survive-agencys-new-trump-appointee/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In late January 2017, when the first of President-elect Donald Trump’s 4,000 political employees report for work, there already will be plenty of angst built up – both by the appointees and by the career civil servants they will oversee.   Thing are going to be different. Many of the appointees will bring different policies and different styles. Most importantly, they will represent a new President who openly and frequently spoke with disdain about the federal workforce and ran on a platform of bringing change. If you’re a senior executive, you want to survive in the new administration and you want your agency to succeed.  But dealing with the arrival of an unknown entity with an unknown agenda can be daunting. Ira Goldstein, a long-time federal executive and consultant, provided some tools for both sides in this new partnership in his recent book The Federal Management Playbook. He offered some practical advice for federal workers – things that can and must be done. To begin with, Goldstein wants to put the federal workforce at ease about dealing with Trump’s declarations about “draining the swamp.” “After 46 years in and around the federal government, I discovered even through there was a lot of publicity around our nation that government doesn’t work well, what you see after a period of time is that many things really do work well. Planes fly safely over our country. Social Security checks get out on time,” Goldstein said in an interview on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin. “Government is important. It’s not going to go away and it’s enormously complex. We’ve got to do better. We need good ‘bureaucrats’ ― skilled, committed, experienced career officials. We also need political direction and oversight, and these days we need competent consultants and contractors.” As a former U.S. assistant comptroller general and chief operating officer of the Government Accountability Office, and founder of Deloitte’s U.S. Federal Practice, Goldstein has seen many transitions. His Playbook hammers home ways and means of working with the incoming transition team “to achieve the effective and efficient execution of public policies that we want and deserve.”)

ROBERT FEDER
— Reboot Illinois moving behind paywall  (DIERSEN: Rest assured that a) GOPUSA ILLINOIS will never move
www.gopillinois.com behind a paywall, b) GOPUSA ILLINOIS will never charge for its emails, c) GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails will never include advertising, d) GOPUSA ILLINOIS will continue sending out an email each and every morning as it has done since 2004, and e) GOPUSA ILLINOIS will continue sending out an email each and every evening as it has done since 2015.  Since 2004, GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails have included links to almost 253,500 articles and information on many upcoming events. All the time and money necessary to send out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails comes from me.  He who pays the piper calls the tunes.)
http://www.robertfeder.com/2016/12/01/reboot-illinois-moving-behind-paywall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you want to read Reboot Illinois, the political journalism website and daily newsletter, now it’s going to cost you. After four years of free access to its readers, the digital source for news, commentary and analysis about state and local government will be shifting next week to a paid subscription model. “We’re moving from a public affairs journalism organization primarily supported by seed investments and advertising to one supported mainly by your subscriptions,” publisher Madeleine Doubek emailed readers Thursday. “We started Reboot Illinois four years ago with the help of some seed funding from prominent Chicagoans who were concerned, like we were, that citizens were not getting reliable and fair reporting, in-depth analysis, or a wide range of commentary and infographics about our local and state governments in Illinois,” she wrote. “Our mission has been and remains to inform, engage and activate Illinoisans about the governments we all own.” Reboot Illinois was bankrolled in 2012 by hedge fund manager Anne Dias, founder of Aragon Global Management (and ex-wife of billionaire Ken Griffin), who hired the editorial and technology teams, and oversaw the platform’s initial digital and marketing efforts. Earlier this year Dias sold her ownership interest to AFK Media Group, a Chicago-based investor group headed by entrepreneur Anthony Knierim. Doubek said Thursday that AFK Media remains “fully behind” the mission. “From the start, Reboot Illinois was always envisioned as a self-supporting, profitable media firm and this is another step to get us closer to that goal,” she told me. (In her email to readers, Doubek noted: “In the past decade, the rates advertisers pay throughout digital media have been dropping fast. Advertising simply isn’t enough to support our work any longer.”) At the outset, subscribers will be charged $12 per month or a discounted rate of $120 a year. Current readers will be offered a 50 percent discount for the first four months, or an annual rate of $100 if they sign up before year end. In July Reboot Illinois partnered with PolitiFact, the Pulitzer Prize-winning fact-checking initiative launched by Poynter Institute’s Tampa Bay Times.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jesse Jackson Jr. is calling on President Barack Obama to issue a mass pardon of former prison inmates who have completed their sentences — a group that would include both Jackson and his wife, former Ald. Sandi Jackson. In an emotional and rambling Facebook post he made at 4 a.m. Thursday, Jackson wrote that “the great 2016 pardoning of the masses will create a resounding echo in history and will mark you as the greatest Christian president ever to serve.” He added, “Mr. President, for those Americans who have traipsed through the criminal justice system and transcended transgression by duly serving time, the outcome should be clear. An official declaration of TIME SERVED, for each and every eligible member of the American family, from the highest office of the land is the only response congruent with the redemption story of Christ. “Truly, Mr. President, with a presidential pardon equally monumental to, and greater in scope than, the Emancipation Proclamation the legacy of Barack Hussein Obama II will be one of faith, hope and love.”)

DAILY CALLER
— OSU Terrorist Was Enrolled In Class On Diversity, Microaggressions – Blake Neff  (DIERSEN: What would Abdul Artan think of you?  Based on his demographics, his education, and his actions, Artan would certainly want to kill me.)
http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/01/osu-terrorist-was-enrolled-in-class-on-diversity-microaggressions/
(FROM THE ACTICLE: Ohio State University (OSU) attacker Abdul Artan was enrolled in a class focused on diversity and microaggressions, and was taught that Muslims were an oppressed minority just two weeks before his car-and-knife assault on his fellow students. For the fall term at OSU, Artan was taking a class titled “Crossing Identity Boundaries,” offered by OSU’s Higher Education and Student Affairs program in the education department. The class in question is dedicated to “exploring issues of diversity and inequality as well as their personal and social responsibility for building a more just university and society.” A look at the class’s syllabus reveals that much of it is simply a catalog of alleged oppression in American society. Different class days focused on topics like white privilege and racism, and the syllabus is replete with reading assignments like “Dragon ladies, snow queens, and Asian-American dykes: Reflections on race and sexuality.” In fact, just two weeks before Artan’s rampage, the class focused on the topic of religious oppression, with a particular focus on the alleged oppression of Muslims. Readings for the November 16 class included “Creating identity-safe spaces on college campuses for Muslim students,” while the Nov. 17 discussion on “Unpacking Religious Oppression” included the reading “Christian privilege: Breaking a sacred taboo.”)

 

FOX NEWS OPINION
— Liberals get hysterical over the ‘alt-right’ but we are living in their ‘alt-left’ world – Dan Gainor (DIERSEN: Ever-increasing, the “traditional media” acts as an arm of the Democrat Party.”)
http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2016/12/02/liberals-get-hysterical-over-alt-right-but-are-living-in-their-alt-left-world.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The traditional media are obsessed with tying conservatives to the “alt-right.” There have been more than 50 major news network mentions this year alone as journalists try to do what they always do — paint conservatives as racist, sexist, and a few other words that end in ist. All in the name of “tolerance.”  But when it comes to the left, then they abandon that strategy. There is no alt-left. They are not alternative. Their mainstream is radical and out of the American mainstream on almost everything. This was quite obvious as liberals bemoaned the death of Fidel Castro, a man his own daughter called “a tyrant.” The Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. summed up years of devotion, recalling how, “the oppressed the world over joined Castro’s cause of fighting for freedom & liberation.” Some liberals distanced themselves from that love affair, though many have embraced left-wing dictators from Stalin to Chavez. But, the left is even worse when it comes to policy, where it shows its true colors (red). On every major issue of the day, the left is unified. Taxes. Climate. So-called “free” college. Citizens United. Transgender bathroom/locker rooms/showers. ObamaCare. In each case and thousands more, the left wants more, bigger, better-funded government. Liberals want higher taxes because they know how to spend your money better than you do — on what they want. They have turned climate science into a religion where disbelief is to be persecuted or even prosecuted.)

Blackwell  (DIERSEN: Yes, but virtually all federal employees are Democrats, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation are rampant in the federal government, and 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. Further, non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that with only rare exceptions, a) the longer that you are a federal employee, the less likely that private sector employers will hire you, b) your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make 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, c) you will be expected to help your superiors and supervisors get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, and d) virtually everyone despises if not hates federal employees, former federal employees, and federal retirees.)
http://www.leadershipinstitute.org/

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Now is the time for patriotic Americans to come to the aid of their country.  Will you be one of them? On November 8th Americans voted and then held their breath.  Nothing less than the continuation of the United States as a constitutional republic hung in the balance.  After the polls closed, there emerged a result that would confound the ideologues and reassure nervous patriotic Americans:  Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Overcoming the obstacles left by decades of disinformation from the dominant leftist news media, false indoctrination in our schools and colleges, corrosive popular entertainment, and the hidden but almost certainly widespread election fraud perpetrated by the radical left, Americans voted decisively to stop the deconstruction of the Constitution and the rule of law. But this will be a fleeting victory if qualified conservatives fail to step up and seek appointments in the Trump Administration.  Donald Trump now needs the help of conservative Americans like you.  President-elect Trump needs reinforcements from capable, principled, courageous conservatives to help him make America great again. Service in the Executive Branch of the United States Government is an honorable undertaking.  Now it is especially heroic for a principled conservative.  And the salary and benefits are substantial. More than 2 million civilians work for the Executive Branch of the United States (not including employees of the U.S. Postal Service).  This is a permanent workforce, insulated by the civil service law from the ordinary forms of discipline and accountability that promote productive achievements in the private sector. To help him manage this massive Executive Branch workforce (they are supposed to help him “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”) President-elect Trump will appoint about 4,000 civil officers and lower officials who will serve at his pleasure.  You can see that the conservative principles of leadership, competence, courage, and initiative of these 4,000 appointees will be crucial to the rehabilitation of the rule of law in the United States Government. Will you answer the call of duty and apply to serve in the Trump Administration?  Will you encourage other capable, brave, conservative Americans to seek to serve in the Trump Administration? In late 1980 and early 1981, I worked full-time in the Presidential Personnel Office of President-elect Ronald Reagan.  Then I worked for three years on President Reagan’s White House Staff. Those of us in the Reagan White House saw that where the right people are given responsibility, good things tend to happen.  A principled appointee will look for ways to implement his principles.  Those without principles will tend to do nothing unless they are told to do it.  A too centralized organization cannot achieve as much as an intelligently de-centralized one. Personnel is policy. Every Presidential political appointee has some power to make things happen.  Will you be one of them? President-elect Trump will successfully restore constitutional government if conservatives with competence, experience, and courage step up and seek appointments in the Trump Administration.  Do you have what it takes to serve the President-elect and your country well?  Will you seek an appointment? The stakes are high; if we are to keep our republic, now is the time to demonstrate the full power of conservative principles.  Are you ready for the challenge? What should you do now? Review the compilation in the Plum Book of the approximately 4,000 political positions that will be filled in the Trump Administration:  https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/GPO-PLUMBOOK-2012/pdf/GPO-PLUMBOOK-2012.pdf  After you have a good idea of the departments and job positions that fit your experience and qualifications, submit an online application through the official Presidential Transition portal at https://www.greatagain.gov/serve-america.html.  Record any reference number that the system assigns to you. Then fill out the Leadership Institute Presidential Personnel Referral Form – recommend yourself and other good conservatives who should step forward to help the President-elect succeed in restoring America to her founding principles.  This is the starting point for LI to guide you through the appointment process.  Find the form here:  https://www.conservativejobs.com/PresidentialReferral/index.cfm  My staff can provide advice on your resume, cover letter, and the Executive Branch positions that your experience is best suited for.  Email [email protected] to schedule a resume consultation (these can be by phone). You should also visit the portal set up by our friends at the Heritage Foundation so they can help you too:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc52DDZ5hEd7SmQMOInYXAxtqu8NKKbAMye16P6T04I-uDY-w/viewform. Now is the time for all good conservatives to come to the aid of their country.)

— Homeowners Hit the Jackpot  Homeowners who stay put—living in the same home for 15, 20, 30 years—can pocket millions of dollars when they finally make a move. – STEFANOS CHEN (DIERSEN: My grandfather on my father’s side had 1286 Wood Street built in Crete in 1926 on land that his grandfather bought in 1864. My brother continues to live there. Zillow estimates it to be worth $122,268.)
http://www.wsj.com/articles/homeowners-hit-the-jackpot-1480605189
(FROM THE THE ARTICLE: Wait long enough, though, and the peaks and valleys seem less important. In San Francisco, Ed McGuirk, 65, and his family are selling an eight-bedroom Victorian home for $6.95 million; his grandfather bought it for $30,000 in 1926. “That was a ton of money back then,” said Mr. McGuirk, a retired schoolteacher. “But now it’s skyrocketed in price.” He, along with his siblings and a cousin, are selling the roughly 5,100-square-foot home because they all live elsewhere; his aunt, the last owner, died in 2015. Unlike most homes in the area, the Queen Anne-style home still has most of its original layout, with 12-foot ceilings and grand parlors. In the basement, his grandfather’s Prohibition-era bar is still intact. Behind a mirror is a passageway that led into the front yard—presumably to make a quick escape from police, he said. He used to play in the tunnel as a child. (It has since been sealed to elude more likely raiders—neighborhood raccoons. The home was listed in September for just under $7.5 million and reduced to $6.95 million in October.)

http://www.newsweek.com/glaad-launches-trump-accountability-project-527340
(FROM THE ARTICLE: GLAAD has launched a new “Trump Accountability Project,” the nonprofit announced on Thursday. An ongoing effort, it will track the discriminatory and hateful statements and stances of President-elect Donald Trump and others selected, or being considered for, roles in his administration. Though GLAAD is an LGBTQ media advocacy organization, it will catalog not only anti-LGBTQ remarks, but also comments targeting women, immigrants, Muslims and other communities and ideas. “I think we’re in a different place. We have an LGBTQ community, among other communities, that feel that we are living in a new America,” Sarah Kate Ellis, the president and CEO of GLAAD, tells Newsweek. “We have had quite a bit of progress over the past years, and there are concerns that some of the progress is going to be rolled back.” The project is “an opportunity to shine a light on what is being said and how it could affect the progress that we’ve made.”)

http://www.aol.com/article/news/2016/12/01/mike-pences-new-neighbors-are-making-a-not-so-subtle-statement/21618571/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mike Pence will be moving into the Naval Observatory in Northwest DC in a few months, but until then he’s renting. CNN reported that his new home in one of the capital’s upscale suburbs is costing the future vice president $6,000-a-month. And like the Hamilton cast, some of Pence’s new neighbors have strong feelings about the positions that the former Indiana governor has held in relation to the LGBT community. According to WJLA, more than half a dozen rainbow flags have appeared on the doorsteps and front lawns of homes in Pence’s new neighborhood. One of his neighbors said that she considers the flags “a respectful message showing, in my case, my disagreement with some of his thinking.”)

— Immigration Is About Economics, Not A Wall – Dustin Siggins  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, a) Democrats side with foreign countries against America and b) side with the citizens of foreign countries against the citizens of America.)
http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/30/immigration-is-about-economics-not-a-wall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to new research from Pew Research, there are eight million illegal immigrants working or looking for work in the U.S., totaling five percent of the U.S. work force and the vast majority of the over 11 million illegal immigrants commonly estimated to be in the nation. While many of those immigrants pay taxes, there is a net cost to taxpayers of tens of billions of dollars per year, according to fluctuating estimates. Many of these costs are borne by state and local governments. Building an expensive wall won’t force any illegal immigrants, about 40 percent of whom have overstayed their visas after legally crossing our borders, to leave the country. Enacting an effective E-Verify program enforced by fining businesses who hire illegal immigrants would, by removing the financial incentive of employment. Likewise, Congress and Trump can simultaneously save taxpayers billions of dollars and remove at least some of the financial and legal protections provided to illegal immigrants by pulling funding from more than 200 sanctuary cities that refuse to work with federal customs officials.)
