— Number of unauthorized immigrants in Illinois drops 10 percent, study shows – Marwa Eltagouri and Nereida Moreno  (DIERSEN: How many of these 450,000 illegals in Illinois will use their false identifications to vote for Clinton, for Duckworth, and for the other Democrats?)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-illinois-unauthorized-immigration-decline-met-20160920-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The number of unauthorized immigrants residing in Illinois dropped by 10 percent, or 50,000 people, between 2009 and 2014 — something experts say has been key to Chicago’s recent population loss. “So much of the population growth in this region was based on legal and undocumented immigration. This closes the plug on the growth we’ve had,” said Rob Paral, a Chicago-based demographer who advises nonprofits and community groups. “Undocumented immigrants were a substantial piece of the picture, and that era is behind us.” In 2014, about 450,000 unauthorized immigrants lived in Illinois, compared with about 500,000 in 2009, according to a study released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. While most states saw no significant change in their unauthorized immigrant populations during the five-year period, Illinois is among seven states that saw their populations decline, primarily due to a drop in the number of unauthorized immigrants from Mexico. The population of unauthorized Mexican immigrants has declined nationwide as well because of the sluggish U.S. economic recovery and stricter border enforcement. But the country’s overall count of unauthorized immigrants remained stable through 2014 due to a spike in unauthorized immigrants from Asia, Central America and sub-Saharan Africa, according to the report, which bases its findings on data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau.)

Those emails have gone out each and every morning since 2004, each and every evening since 2015, and they have included links to almost 245,400 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/mihalopoulos-so-much-spent-by-so-few-to-accomplish-so-little/
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Because Democrats and RINOs have succeeded in making the future look so bad for Republicans, Democrats and RINOs question why Republicans still have babies.  Assuring a better life for their children, for their grand children, for their great grand children, etc. is the main reason why Republicans get involved in government and in politics.  If my wife and I had children, I would be working a thousand times harder than I do to promote the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee Resolution against video gambling.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Reporter contract talks rev up at Tronc’s suburban papers – LYNNE MAREK  (DIERSEN: My worthless critics/opponents, their worthless operatives, and their worthless dupes have always a) shouted that I am worthless because no one pays me for what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor and b) shouted that my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are worthless because I send them free of charge and without any advertising. In my defense, not that I need to defend myself, unlike many if not most of my worthless critics/opponents, and unlike virtually all their worthless operatives and worthless dupes, I am financially secure.  I can afford to spend the thousands of dollars and thousands of hours each year necessary to put together and send out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.  He who pays the piper calls the tunes.  I do not want anyone to call my tunes.  I am fortunate enough that I do not have ask anyone for money.  As everyone including Rich Miller knows, GOPUSA ILLINOIS email subscriptions are worth at least $1,000/year.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160920/NEWS06/160929982
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Sun-Times Media suburban reporters who began working out of cars and coffee shops in 2012 after their offices closed now have a chance to improve their lot at Tronc. They became part of Tronc in 2014 after its predecessor, Tribune Publishing, bought the suburban dailies and weeklies from the Sun-Times’ parent, Wrapports. Now, negotiations on a new contract for the 30 editorial employees represented by the Chicago News Guild are scheduled to start next week. It will be the first contract negotiated for the workers since they shifted from Chicago’s no. 2 newspaper operation to the city’s biggest. Tension is already building in advance of the expiration of the current contract at the end of the year. The union today posted a lengthy report of one Evanston Review reporter’s travails with management, and an unfair labor practice charge that was filed by the union last month with the National Labor Relations Board on his behalf. The union alleges the reporter was transferred from one suburban paper to another as retaliation for his complaining about a news story and exercising his contractual right to withhold his byline from the piece. “Within days of him asking to withhold his byline, he was transferred,” says Craig Rosenbaum, who is executive director of the union. Tronc spokeswoman Dana Meyer said it was not retaliation. “The company respects the collective agreement with Pioneer Press and has worked within the terms and conditions of that agreement,” she said in a statement. “There have been incidents where a reporter has asked to have their name removed and we consistently accommodate those requests. The agreement specifically identifies rules for transferring an employee and we adhere to these rules.”)

— Chicago area’s poverty rate declined in 2015 as incomes rose – Alexia Elejalde-Ruiz  (DIERSEN: Democrat politicians fight poverty by taking money, jobs, opportunities, etc. away from Republicans and by giving that money, by giving those jobs, and by giving those opportunities to Democrats.  It is called Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-illinois-chicago-census-0915-biz-20160914-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Chicago metro area had nearly 52,000 fewer people living in poverty in 2015 than it did the year before, following national trends as its poverty rate dropped and household incomes rose — though the economic improvements locally were not as vigorous as national averages. The poverty rate fell to 13.3 percent last year from 13.9 percent in the Chicago-Naperville-Elgin metro area, which was among 16 of the 25 most populous metro areas to see a significant drop in poverty rates, according to American Community Survey data scheduled for Thursday release by the U.S. Census Bureau. The other large metro areas saw no change in poverty rates; none had an increase. Median household income, adjusted for inflation, rose by 2.4 percent in the Chicago metro area between 2014 and 2015, to $63,135. That growth was more tepid than the national average, which saw median household income rise 3.8 percent, to $55,775. Median incomes increased in 21 of the 25 most populous metro areas. None showed a decrease. Nationally, the poverty rate declined to 14.7 percent in 2015 from 15.5 percent the year before, according to the American Community Survey, marking the first time since the survey launched in 2005 that poverty has declined significantly two years in a row.)

http://www.newsmax.com/TomFitton/immigration-voter-registration-judicial-watch/2016/09/12/id/747819/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Months after the Obama administration spent $19 million to register new immigrant voters that will likely support Democrats in November, it’s dedicating an additional $10 million in a final push as the presidential election approaches. The money is distributed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Homeland Security agency that oversees lawful immigration, to organizations that help enhance pathways to naturalization by offering immigrants free citizenship instruction, English, U.S. history, and civics courses. Officially, they’re known as “citizenship integration grants.”  Since 2009 USCIS has doled out $63 million in these grants to prepare more than 156,000 resident immigrants in dozens of states for U.S. citizenship, according to the agency’s figures. Besides the free classes, Uncle Sam also offers immigrants free “naturalization legal services,” the latest USCIS grant announcement states. “Recipient organizations serve both traditional immigrant destinations and new immigrant getaway cities in 21 states,” the USCIS document reads. The latest $10 million investment will prepare approximately 25,000 residents from more than 50 countries, according to the agency. More than a dozen states — including California, New York, Florida, Washington, and Ohio — with large resident immigrant populations are being targeted as well as cities with huge immigrant populations such as Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.)

They stress the adverse actions a) that my Democrat GAO superiors took against me including forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, not promoting me beyond GS-13, keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forcing me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, b) that my Democrat IRS superiors took against me including not promoting me beyond GS-12, disallowing my education deductions, and disallowing my partial day per diem claims, and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors took against me including forcing me resign in 1969 and disallowing my sick leave requests.)

— That Scandal on Your Résumé Will Cost You—Even if It Isn’t Yours  If you’re coming from a tainted company, you may get dinged on pay. Here’s how to minimize the damage. – Suzanne Woolley  (DIERSEN: What do potential employers think of the employers that you do/did work for?  From what I see, virtually all employers despise if not hate my former employer, the federal government.  From what I see, the longer that you worked for the federal government, the more that potential employers despise if not hate you.  I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years – almost 3 for the Post Office 1966-1969, almost 9 for IRS 1971-1980, and almost 18 for GAO 1980-1997.)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-09-13/that-scandal-on-your-r-sum-will-cost-you-even-if-it-isn-t-yours
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You could get dinged on compensation, or even knocked out of  contention for a job, by a corporate scandal you had nothing to do with. The Enrons and Worldcoms and Wells Fargos hurt the careers of innocent bystanders. It’s a nasty and persistent reputational ripple effect that can be incredibly hard, and sometimes impossible, to counteract. Wells Fargo & Co., where bank employees tried to meet quotas and earn bonuses by opening sham accounts for customers without their knowledge, is the scandal of the hour. And it is executives in financial services firms that suffer the most from guilt by association, an article in the September Harvard Business Review suggests. Initial compensation at these executives’ next job is about 10 percent lower than for that their untainted counterparts, the authors found. Across industries, job functions, levels of seniority, and regions, executives with such companies on their résumés took a cut of 4 percent in total compensation. Women were dinged 7 percent to men’s 3 percent.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/parthenon-facing-about-475000-in-federal-state-tax-claims/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The more than $380,000 due to the federal government was almost all for employee withholding taxes that should have been paid for 2014 and 2015, records show. The restaurant had 45 employees at the time it closed, said Parthenon founder and owner Christos Liakouras. The state also alleged that the restaurant owed a variety of unpaid taxes, including withholding income tax and a food and beverage tax that goes to the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority. Liakouras said he expected he and his daughter and partner in the restaurant, Joanna Liakouras, would meet with their lawyer and with the feds to arrange for a payment plan. “We are going to go meet with the IRS, and I think they will get all their money, slowly but surely,” said Liakouras, 80.)

DAILY HERALD
— LESTER: Rauner jumps into 27th  After initially staying out of the process of selecting a replacement for departing GOP state Sen. Matt Murphy, the governor’s office and its allies have jumped into the fray. They held interviews for the six candidates Friday in Chicago. Among those questioning the candidates were the governor, chief political strategist Mike Zolnierowicz, John Tillman of the Illinois Policy Institute and Senate GOP Leader Christine Radogno. Local party leaders are scheduled to meet on Thursday to formally select a replacement. Palatine Township Republican Committeeman Aaron Del Mar of Palatine, state Rep. David Harris of Arlington Heights, state Rep. Tom Morrison of Palatine, Palatine Township Supervisor Sharon Langlotz-Johnson, Arlington Heights Trustee Joe Farwell and Rolling Meadows Mayor Tom Rooney are seeking the appointment.
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160912/news/160919787/
— LESTER: Murphy’s new job  What led Murphy, of Palatine, to leave the legislature and take a post at Mac Strategies Group, a public affairs firm headed by Des Plaines native Ryan McLaughlin? McLaughlin tells me he’d been thinking for some time about expanding the firm and describes a longtime friendship with Murphy. “I mentioned my interest in taking my firm to the next level by offering a lobbying practice beyond our communications and public affairs services and he mentioned his growing obligations to his family,” McLaughlin says. “As we talked more, it made all the sense in the world to join forces. It’s a natural and perfect fit.” Murphy previously has said that with four children, two of them in college, he needed more income than his $84,000 state pay ­– $67,000 base pay plus leadership stipends, with paychecks sometimes delayed by the state’s budget impasse. Mac Strategies has not disclosed Murphy’s new pay. McLaughlin says Murphy will work as a legislative and regulatory lobbyist with state and federal clients. He’ll also provide advice on communications and public affairs strategies. Murphy’s first day is Friday.

U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT AND WASHINGTON POST
— With backing of wealthy governor, Illinois GOP spending big  Illinois Republicans are vastly outspending Democrats in fall legislative races for the first time in recent history with the help of their wealthy governor – AP
http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2016-09-12/with-backing-of-wealthy-governor-illinois-gop-spending-big
https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/with-backing-of-wealthy-governor-illinois-gop-spending-big/2016/09/12/3ed59d38-78ab-11e6-8064-c1ddc8a724bb_story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the first time in recent history, Illinois Republicans are vastly outspending Democrats in fall legislative races with the help of a wealthy governor determined to curtail a traditionally blue political landscape that has thwarted his agenda for two years. The more than $13 million the GOP’s main campaign committee has disbursed to House and Senate candidates so far — nearly all of it coming from Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner — dwarfs what either party has been able to spend sometimes in entire election cycles. And the Illinois Republican Party Committee still has $3 million from Rauner in the bank. “This is a new ballgame and we’re taking it very seriously,” said Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie, the Democrats’ House leader. Infusions of cash from the former venture capitalist demonstrates how much — and how easily — he’s willing to invest in pursuit of his goal to give his party greater influence in the state Legislature. The November results could determine the fate of Rauner’s proposals to weaken unions, pass business-friendly laws, impose term limits, and change the way legislative districts are drawn for years to come. They also will decide who has control of crafting a full state budget, which Illinois hasn’t had for over a year because Rauner wants Democrats to give him what he wants in exchange for raising taxes to help with a deficit that exceeds $5 billion. Rauner was elected in 2014 as a political newcomer promising to shake up the Democrats’ regime, but they’ve had supermajorities to block all his major proposals. His entry into politics and the spending power he brought with him has allowed Republicans to compete in more races — and a lot earlier than past years when Democrats’ financial resources were superior. Democrats have controlled both chambers of the Legislature since 2003 and have the nation’s longest-tenured state House speaker, Michael Madigan, who has held that post for all but two years since 1983. When Rauner was elected, he became the first Republican in 12 years in Illinois, a Democratic stronghold that hasn’t backed a Republican for president since 1988. Before Rauner, the Illinois Republican Party Committee spent $3.4 million on races in 2012. The Democratic Party of Illinois, meanwhile, spent $6.7 million. Both parties distribute money to candidates through several other committees so those totals don’t tell the entire story, but they’re indicative of each party’s past spending prowess, according to campaign disclosures The Associated Press analyzed dating back to 2006 from the Illinois State Board of Elections. “There’s never been a time in recent history where House Republicans have outspent House Democrats. It’s been a considerable disadvantage,” said Rep. Jim Durkin, the GOP’s House leader. Breaking the Democrats’ supermajorities in either chamber won’t be easy because the party enjoys advantages of 71-47 in the House and 39-20 in the Senate. But Durkin said Rauner’s money “for the first time in many years gives us a fighting chance.” Rauner has repeatedly declined to comment on the legislative races or his involvement in them. On the Democrats’ side, their party committees have been less active than the Republicans’ this year. The Democratic Party of Illinois and the Democratic Majority — two of the party’s biggest committees — have contributed a combined $1.6 million to candidates so far. But the Democrats’ candidates have individually amassed robust campaign funds. Democratic Rep. John Bradley, for instance, has $647,160 at his disposal for his closely watched race against Dave Severin in southern Illinois. That’s what makes Rauner’s money so significant in a state where Democrats tend to be more successful fundraisers. The majority of Severin’s $300,000 in campaign cash has come from the House Republican Organization committee, which is receiving large deposits from the Illinois Republican Party to funnel to candidates. Republican Rep. Michael McAuliffe, who Democrats are targeting in the Chicago suburbs, has also benefited from Rauner’s funding. The House Republican Organization has contributed nearly $1 million to his campaign. Television ads supporting McAuliffe have been airing since August, earlier than when either party usually hits the air waves. McAuliffe’s ads have even played outside his district. In the past, Republicans would’ve been reluctant to spend money in August when voters are less engaged. They just couldn’t afford it. In 2012, for example, the Republicans’ two major party committees spent just over $2 million combined from July 1 through Sept. 30. “Some of this spending has nothing to do with the election. It has to do with Rauner flexing his muscle,” said David Yepsen, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. That display of financial force can influence who Democrats choose as their gubernatorial candidate next time because they’ll want someone who can self-fund or raise massive amounts of cash, Yepsen said. “Democrats, if they survive, they’re going to know they’ve been in a fight,” he said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Will County officials are considering a plan in which they may opt out of their participation in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund, in the wake of a new law that bans newly elected board members from the state pension program. Members of the county board’s executive committee voted to recommend a resolution eliminating the IMRF pension for all county board members, effective Nov. 30. It’s expected to be voted on by the full board at its Sept. 15 meeting. “People should not be coming here to get a pension,” said board member Mike Fricilone, who made the motion to drop the pension benefit, saying Will County should take the lead on this issue. Currently, county officials reported that 17 of the county’s 26 board members participate in the IMRF pension program and the county pays 11.6 percent of a member’s annual salary of $23,000 into the IMRF. Members pay 4.5 percent of their paychecks, according to the IMRF.)

CHICAGO ARGUS
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Republicans say “Labor Day is what we make of it.”
http://chicagoargus.blogspot.com/2016/09/labor-day-is-what-we-make-of-it.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Take west suburban Naperville, where the parade to be held Monday morning is officially billed as the “Last Fling,” as though the day’s purpose is to have one last celebration before summer comes to an end. The day is officially being sponsored in that community by a Kia auto dealership and is honoring the local park district as its grand marshal, although among its participants will be Gov. Bruce Rauner – not exactly the kind of politico with any interest in building up a favorable impression among organized labor interests. The atmosphere in Naperville is likely to be different than what will take place in Calumet City – which usually has an end-of-summer parade that gives a bit of tribute to organized labor. IT’S NOT THE kind of place that Rauner would choose to be in – likely because he knows the locals would boo and heckle him mercilessly if he were to show his face. Which is probably why Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti will be the official state participant in that parade – I suspect her presence will be undetected because most of the locals won’t have a clue who she is or what she looks like!)

It’s horrible that the Afghani refugees could do that to a girl and still walk up to her on the street,” Wolfram Burow, 57, who works in property management, said about a suspect on trial for rape in Cologne’s mass New Year’s Eve attacks. “Angela Merkel’s ‘we can manage it’ policy is nonsense,” he added. “She’s not doing anything except creating chaos for us to deal with.

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— ALL OF THE FRONT PAGE: Their property-tax bills? Zero – Tim Novak
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/the-watchdogs-their-property-tax-bills-zero/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They are among 4,188 senior citizens across Chicago who didn’t have to pay property taxes on their homes this year, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of more than 880,000 tax bills and property assessments in the city has found. The tax breaks those seniors got meant higher taxes for everyone else, shifting $9.6 million in property taxes to other homeowners and businesses, most of whom have been socked with soaring tax bills this year caused by a combination of new, higher property values set by Cook County Assessor Joseph Berrios and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s tax hike to fund pensions for police and firefighters. Another 1,692 seniors living in the Cook County suburbs also received tax bills showing they owed no taxes on their homes this year, the Sun-Times found. It’s difficult to determine how much those breaks cost others in those suburbs since tax rates vary by community and school district. All of these seniors are benefiting from a program called the senior citizen assessment freeze, which the state of Illinois created two decades ago as a lifeline for older people who feared they’d be forced out of their homes when their neighborhoods became hot and real estate taxes skyrocketed. Under the program, the longer seniors stay in their homes, the more they can save on their property taxes, often ending up paying nothing at all.)

DAILY HERALD
— Labor Day’s become a day off rather than a holiday – Editorial  (DIERSEN: What is your connection with unions?  Virtually all my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are vehemently anti-union, if not union haters. They stress that I was a union member for almost 12 years, that unions helped me win grievances against the Post Office and IRS, that I might still be a GAO employee if GAO had been unionized in 1997, and that I have only bought cars that were built by union members.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160903/discuss/160909619/
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Labor Day was born, in large measure, as so many things seem to be in the United States, as a political favor granted to a special interest group. The national holiday was approved unanimously by Congress in 1894 and signed into law by President Grover Cleveland at least in part to reach out to trade unions following the bitter and bloody Pullman Strike of that year. Did the politicians of that time feel a genuine allegiance to unions? Many did, so we don’t want to get too cynical here. And the holiday without question was a sincere tribute by a large number to the achievements the labor movement had made on behalf of the worker. But there was a benefit for politicians who backed it — support from unions that were growing in strength. And a benefit for the unions — annual promotional branding in parades and celebrations across America. The holiday’s roots in the organized labor movement actually extended back a dozen years earlier when a more parochial version of it was celebrated in New York at the behest of the Central Labor Union. Is it still viewed largely as a tribute to union workers and the benefits generated by the American labor movement? Well, it no doubt is if you live in a union household. But the holiday has evolved to have a generalized meaning that is considerably more vague.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/04/opinion/sunday/a-bold-attempt-to-redefine-dissidence-in-cuba.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Dissident” is a loaded word in Cuba, a label used to discredit and punish. Those who have embraced the term can be shut out of public jobs and are often subjected to arbitrary detentions and beatings. This year, with expectations reset by the normalization of relations between Cuba and the United States, Luis Manuel Otero and Yanelis Nuñez Leyva, a couple in Havana, figured it was time to redefine what it means to be a dissident. They created the Museum of Dissidence in Cuba, a website that chronicles the long line of people who have stood in opposition to the government throughout history. Among the dissidents they feature are President Raúl Castro and his brother, Fidel, who took power through an armed revolt, along with prominent leaders of modern opposition groups, who have been suppressed by the Cuban government. The project carries an implicit message: The current ruling class, which seems so rigidly entrenched, will most likely be replaced one day.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to career coaches, recruiters and other experts, it takes a fair amount of sleuthing to get the scoop on what a company’s really like to work for, including researching potential employers’ financials, reputation and hiring practices and talking to current and former employees and managers. “Watch, look, and listen to the people already there,” advises career coach Paula Gregorowicz of The Paula G. Co. “Is there a vibe of adrenaline and intense pressure? What do they expect of you in terms of availability?” she suggests asking. “Few people on their deathbed wish they spent more time at work. Choose wisely according to your personal values and when an employer shows you what they are like, believe them.” Here are other suggestions for uncovering a prospective employer’s true colors, from career experts and coaches, recruiters and company owners:)
