ABC7
— Police report reveals new details on Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings racist incident – Terrell Brown
https://abc7chicago.com/society/police-report-reveals-new-details-on-naperville-buffalo-wild-wings-racist-incident/5696571/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Reverend Jesse Jackson is working with the victims of a racist incident at a Naperville Buffalo Wild Wings to get corporate commitments to avoid a boycott of the chain. . .There are now threats of a national boycott if Buffalo Wild Wings doesn’t make improvements. Jackson said he and Rainbow PUSH Coalition will stand with the families to come up with a path forward. He is looking for commitments from the company to stave off a boycott. “Not only that the family get the proper apology that they deserve, but more than that,” Jackson said. “Not only is equal treatment at stake but equal access to franchises and construction. We cannot just be customers, we must be partners in the process.” Buffalo Wild Wings said the company has been in touch with the families and the governor, and is implementing new anti-racism policies in hiring and management practices and welcomes constructive feedback. Apologies alone at this point won’t be enough. “Because that would not have been sufficient for Dr. King as it related to Miss Rosa Parks getting an apology from the bus company,” said Bishop Tavis Grant. “We need systematic constructive change. The roots out uproots racism at its very core.” Jackson stressed he wants to avoid a boycott. Buffalo Wild Wings said 22 percent of its franchises are minority-owned, and by 2020 their largest franchise will be African-American owned. The company has 1,200 restaurants, and operates around the world.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Customer linked to race-related incident at Buffalo Wild Wings was known by staff for racist comments, Naperville police reports show – SUZANNE BAKER
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-naperville-police-buffalo-wild-wings-racist-st-1114-20191114-teiqz4avvvbazbt2m6zw4s74rq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the police report, a man with a swastika tattoo and his female acquaintance told police they had been regulars at the restaurant for the last two to three years, visiting almost every Saturday to watch college football and hockey. The couple had been sitting at a table for four in the restaurant for about two hours when staff seated the group of 18 directly behind them, the police report said. Both the man and woman told investigators they never spoke with any of the members of the large group nor did they ask employees to move the group. The woman told police she pulled their table 5 to 10 inches away from the group so servers could move more freely between the tables. According to police reports, the man told an investigator that Buffalo Wild Wings employees “had heard him make racist jokes and comments in the past.” As a result, some members of the staff “took it upon themselves to tell the large group of (redacted) that they needed to move due to (redacted) being a racist.” . . . One employee told police “the couple has made several negative comments in the past about black people.” A restaurant manager told police that after the Oct. 26 incident, several employees reported past inappropriate conduct from the couple. The manager said he had been unaware of the previous conduct. “If someone other than a Caucasian employee would bring them food, (redacted) would refuse the food and send it back to the kitchen,” the police report stated. One of the employees, in a written statement to police, blamed miscommunication by the staff for the drama on Oct. 26. Marshall said authorities found no evidence of a hate crime and no charges were filed as a result of the incident. A member of the Buffalo Wild Wings corporate communications team previously said the company fired two employees involved in the incident and banned the man employees identified as racist from its restaurants.)

AMERICAN FREE PRESS
— Meet the Shills of Fake News – Donald Jeffries
https://americanfreepress.net/meet-the-shills-of-fake-news/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Considering how many Americans pay high tuition costs every year for college degrees in journalism, or go to expensive broadcasting schools, it is instructive to look at the backgrounds of those at the highest levels of the media. On CNN alone, Anderson Cooper is the son of One Percenter Gloria Vanderbilt and was a CIA college recruit for good measure. Chris Cuomo is the son of former politician Mario Cuomo and brother of current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Among the network’s “senior advisors” are former Barack Obama aide David Axelrod and former White House Fellow under Hillary Clinton Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper started out as press secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, and worked for a public relations firm run by Jimmy Carter’s press secretary, Jody Powell, as well as Handgun Control Inc. Several among CNN’s on-air “talent” sit on the boards of big corporations, an all-too-common practice this author exposed in the book Survival of the Richest. Not only do these positions provide lucrative “part-time” income, they represent a clear conflict of interest.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— ‘Incomprehensible’ Numbers: How Republicans Are Losing New York Suburbs In one county, Democrats grew by more than 150,000, while the number of Republicans dropped by more than 30,000. – Vivian Wang (DIERSEN: If current trends hold, the many Democrat plant, Libertarian plant, Green plant, and RINO leaders of the Republican Party will officially banish individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owners, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/13/nyregion/peter-king-long-island-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats now outnumber Republicans on Long Island, a once unthinkable development in a traditional conservative stronghold where voters backed every Republican presidential candidate, bar two, from 1900 to 1988. . .The shift mirrors a nationwide trend of historically moderate or conservative suburban voters now slowly tipping left. Just last week, those voters helped flip the Virginia statehouse, ousted the last Republicans in a Philadelphia-area County Council and appear to have unseated the Republican governor of Kentucky. The pattern, if it holds, could prove decisive not only for the 2020 presidential election, but also for the makeup of each party’s base for decades.)
— A Black Paratrooper’s First Veterans Day, and His Last A long struggle to remove the stigma of a questionable Army discharge comes to a close. – Michael Wilson (DIERSEN: Constructively, my Democrat GAO superiors gave me a dishonorable discharge in 1997 when I was 49 years old when they forced me to take they early retirement “offer.”)
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/12/nyregion/veterans-death-military-benefits.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He made his way to Brooklyn, still carrying the stigma of his discharge. He said he had tried to commit suicide three times. “I struggled with depression, alcohol abuse and the shame of my dishonorable discharge,” he wrote. He eventually pulled himself up and started over, graduating from Adelphi University and going on to earn a master’s degree. “I found stability,” he wrote, “and dedicated my life to helping others.”)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County Board lifts 10-year ban, votes to allow video gaming in unincorporated areas – ALICIA FABBRE
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-dupage-reverses-ban-video-gaming-st-1113-20191113-fr4ar6wz4zcixeaem5yaoybxne-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Commissioner Tim Elliott, R-Glen Ellyn, said the downside is people have to lose money at the machines in order for the county to receive any money in video gambling taxes. “The revenue we would receive as a county is a fraction of what our residents would lose,” Elliot said, estimating gamers would have to lose a total of $5.5 million for the county to take in $276,000. “That’s not economic development. That is the opposite of economic development.” . . . Board member Pete DiCianni, R-Elmhurst, requested the vote be tabled so that people would have a chance to weigh in, but other commissioners countered that the item was on the agenda and the public had notice of the meeting. DiCianni, who also suggested letting voters decide if the ban should be lifted, said allowing video gambling in unincorporated areas would put more pressure on municipalities that have banned it.)

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: DuPage County lifts ban on video gambling – Robert Sanchez
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20191112/dupage-county-lifts-ban-on-video-gambling
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Still, six Republican board members voted against the repeal: Grant Eckhoff of Wheaton, Tim Elliott of Glen Ellyn, Pete DiCianni of Elmhurst, Sean Noonan of Elmhurst, Jim Healy of Naperville and Robert Larsen of Wheaton. Larsen said he has seen the negative impacts of gambling. And while lifting the ban will generate revenue for the county, he said, “not all revenue is good revenue.” “I don’t think it’s right for DuPage County,” he said. Elliott said he’s concerned that lifting the ban will create problems for businesses in municipalities that prohibit video gambling. “The two largest municipalities in my district — Wheaton and Glen Ellyn — have banned video gaming,” Elliott said. “What are you going to do to them when you allow video gaming in every unincorporated area that borders them?”)

— GOP’s small-fry fundraising – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/11/12/gops-small-fry-fundraising-madigan-hammers-arroyo-deval-patrick-eyes-white-house-run-487650
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since his exit from politics, the GOP has had to change direction. The party hopes its grassroots fundraising campaign, called Lincoln Legion, will raise funds the old-fashioned way. Hackler says 92 percent of all donations in 2019 have been of $100 or less. How it’s playing out: The party raised $36,405 during the most recent reporting period that ended Sept. 30, according to the State Board of Elections. That’s up from $19,000 in donations the previous three months. Republicans have $106,369 cash on hand — up from $88,412 at the end of June. The House Republican Organization has $417,006 cash on hand; the Republican State Senate Campaign Committee has $214,986 cash on hand; and House Minority Leader Jim Durkin has $1.1 million on hand. Those are small-fry numbers compared to the Democratic Party of Illinois, which has $819,289 cash on hand. Sure, there are more Dems in Illinois, but the differences are stark. Friends of Michael Madigan has $7.1 million, the Democratic Majority has $4 million, and the 13th Ward Organization, where Madigan holds sway, has $1.8 million. Pritzker isn’t the only reason Dem fundraising outpaces the GOP. There’s been an eroding of Republican support in the affluent suburbs. Call it the Trump effect, says Democratic political consultant Scott Kennedy. “The 2018 Democratic fundraising success has largely been attributed to a higher level of enthusiasm among Democratic voters but the number of check-writing affluent suburbanites who switched from Republican to Democrat in the Trump era likely also played a role,” he told Playbook. “If Illinois Republicans are going to rebound, they’ll need to reverse that trend.”)

DAILY COMMERCIAL
— The deep state exists, and threatens our republic – Russ Sloan (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government treated me like I was a deep state operative a) because I complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation and b) because I became an active member in a class action lawsuit in 1988 when I was 40 years old that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with my Democrat superiors in the federal government.) 
https://www.dailycommercial.com/opinion/20191110/from-right-deep-state-exists-and-threatens-our-republic
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s taken the better part of the last three years to finally convince me that there is a “deep state” and that its top priority is to get rid of Donald Trump before he has the chance to get re-elected. For years I have been concerned about entrenched government bureaucrats who serve far beyond the elected officials they supposedly serve. Some of these entrenched government workers have reached a point of concern have become known as the “deep state operatives.” Oxford Dictionaries defines “deep state” as follows: A body of people, typically members of the government agencies or the military, believed to be involved in the secret manipulation of control of government policy. The “deep state” and its policy of allowing extremist ideologies to flourish may be the actual issues of concern. Because a federal employee faces a greater chance of dying on the job over getting fired, it has embolden more and more federal employees to undermine elected officials if their views differ with the leaders we have elected. Had Hillary Clinton been elected instead President Trump, we may have never known just have pervasive the “deep state” had become.)

— Okay Boomer, Lawyer Up – Nikki Courtney (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors in the federal government focused on getting their employees who were younger, Democrat, minority, female, and/or veteran to help them get rid of their employees who were older, Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran.)
https://kprcradio.iheart.com/content/2019-11-08-okay-boomer-lawyer-up/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s Millennials vs. Boomers. A young, female New Zealand lawmaker called out an aging, outspoken associate with an offside comment, “Okay, boomer,” and the reverberations are still being felt. She didn’t invent the online meme, but Cloe Swarbrick fired the shot heard round the world. The massive generation of Millennials, essentially people in their 20’s and 30’s, are beginning to give louder voice to their frustrations about the world they’re inheriting. The massive generation they’re targeting, Boomers, essentially everyone 55 and over, were the people who invented the concept of a Generation Gap. They did it when they were the age of today’s Millennials. Houston psychotherapist Dr. Lawrence Abrams says inner-generational warfare is just par for the course. “It gives you someone to get mad at, and we all need someone to get mad at sometimes,” he suggests. The older generation, however, has the law on their side when it comes to verbalized put downs, according to Cozen O’Conner attorney Joseph Sirbak. “’The Age Discrimination in Employment Act’ prohibits discrimination on the basis of age, and that covers people over 40, so by definition anyone who is a Boomer is going to be legally protected.” People under the age of 40 have no such legal protections. Okay, Millennial?)
