NEW YORK TIMES
— For Donald Trump’s Family, an Immigrant’s Tale With 2 Beginnings – JASON HOROWITZ  (DIERSEN: From what county(s) did your ancestors immigrate from and when?  All my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me.  What if I had successfully pretended to be of Swedish national origin?)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/22/us/politics/for-donald-trumps-family-an-immigrants-tale-with-2-beginnings.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the middle of the night, Friedrich Trump left his house in Kallstadt, a small Bavarian town spotted with vineyards and a Lutheran church, for a northern port city that served as Germany’s gateway to America. A few days later, on Oct. 7, 1885, Friedrich, then 16 years old, bought a steerage-class ticket on the S.S. Eider, the start of an adventurous life as a barber, restaurateur, saloonkeeper, hotelier, entrepreneur, gold rush prospector, shipwreck survivor and New York real estate investor. It was an immigrant tale that would make any family proud. But for decades, the Trumps almost never talked about it. Friedrich Trump’s son, Fred, came of age between the World Wars, a period marked by resentment of and even discrimination toward Germans in the United States. More important, he was marketing his properties to the growing Jewish middle class filling up the old farmsteads of central Brooklyn and Queens. During his presidential campaign, Fred’s son Donald has occasionally run roughshod over Jewish sensibilities, notably with a post on Twitter that featured a six-pointed star and a pile of cash. But for many years, the Trumps went out of their way to avoid disquieting their Jewish friends and customers by burying their German identity. They told anyone who asked that they were Swedish. “He had thought, ‘Gee whiz, I’m not going to be able to sell these homes if there are all these Jewish people,’” said Donald J. Trump’s cousin John Walter, the Trump family historian, who has worked closely with Fred and Donald. And once they started portraying themselves as Swedish, they could not stop. “After the war, he’s still Swedish,” Mr. Walter said. “It was just going, going, going.” Even Mr. Trump, not known to be shy about embellishing facts, questioned the need. According to Mr. Walter, when Mr. Trump was working on his best seller “The Art of the Deal” in the mid-1980s, he asked his father, “Do I have to do this Swedish thing?” In the book, published in 1987, he wrote that his father’s story was “classic Horatio Alger,” and that his grandfather “came here from Sweden as a child.” Mr. Trump has been called to account for the discrepancy in the past, sometimes admitting it, sometimes not. In an interview in his Trump Tower office, he at first claimed not to know that his father pretended to be Swedish, saying: “Is that true? I don’t know.” He later acknowledged that the two of them would occasionally discuss the concealment of their heritage, explaining that his father “didn’t want to put any pressure” on his Jewish friends. “It was a very tough time,” he said. “We have a war, we are fighting a war with Germany,” said Mr. Trump, who was born a year after World War II ended.)

http://dailyillini.com/special-sections/quad-day/2016/08/20/find-perfect-rso/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A key aspect of having a successful college experience is figuring out how to get involved. A sure-fire way to get yourself more acclimated to life on campus is to get involved with Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). Here are some methods to try and figure out what RSOs would be a good fit for you: Go off of what you know. If you were involved in high school — whether captain of the tennis team, editor of the yearbook or advocate for LGBT rights — and wish to continue following your passions in college, look for RSOs that can help sustain your drive. Or if there were clubs and activities that you were always itching to give a go at, go ahead and do so. The University’s wide variety of RSOs offers students a chance to get involved with nearly anything that piques their interests.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/sweet-trump-touts-biz-record-but-tower-retail-space-still-empty/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A central premise of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s pitch to voters is that his business success qualifies him for the Oval Office — but his years-long effort to rent retail space at the base of Trump’s namesake tower in Chicago has been a total failure. The billionaire businessman and reality show star, the son of a builder, highlights his real estate development expertise as a central selling point. Indeed, a selection of Trump’s construction projects — mostly in New York — were elements in two biographical videos about Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.)

ILLINOIS POLICY INSTITUTE
— ILLINOIS TAXPAYERS PAY $15,000 PER AFSCME WORKER IN ANNUAL HEALTH CARE COSTS – Mailee Smith (DIERSEN: Because I am a federal retiree, American taxpayers pay $16,854/year and my wife and I pay only $5,618/year for $22,472/year worth of health, dental, and vision insurance.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents stress the aforesaid to their operatives and to their dupes, all of whom have severe financial, health, and/or other problems. Of course, needless-to-say, if I sought a government office or a political office, my critics/opponents would use the aforesaid against me. 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.)
https://www.illinoispolicy.org/illinois-taxpayers-pay-15000-per-afscme-worker-in-annual-health-care-costs/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois’ contract with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees – the state’s largest government-worker union – expired on June 30, 2015. Since then, AFSCME officials have been clamoring for a “fair contract,” with demands including Cadillac health insurance at little cost – hardly a fair proposal for state taxpayers, who can’t afford to keep paying for such exorbitant state-worker benefits. Under the expired contract, taxpayers cover nearly $15,000 per AFSCME worker in annual health care costs, though workers themselves pay just $4,452 toward their own coverage. Meanwhile, private-sector workers have seen rate increases of up to 49 percent in the Illinois health care exchange in 2016 alone.)

http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2016/08/18/mike-pence-releases-financial-disclosure-report/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence on Thursday night released a financial disclosure form that appears to show a negative net worth outside of a state pension—the starkest possible contrast from the top of the GOP ticket. While presidential nominee Donald Trump has boasted at length on the size of his financial disclosure statement and his personal net worth, Mr. Pence’s federally mandated disclosure shows the picture of financial simplicity. He reports no significant savings accounts, mutual funds or 401(k) accounts from before he entered elected office. Mr. Pence, who is 57 years old, earned a six-figure congressional salary from 2001 to 2013. Before being elected to the House, Mr. Pence was a talk-radio host in Indiana. His disclosure states he is paid $173,860 as Indiana’s governor. “Our family has been honored to serve our state and nation,” Mr. Pence said in a statement released by the Trump campaign. “Like many American families, we have been fortunate and blessed to raise three wonderful children and put them through college while doing work that we love.” The Trump campaign said Mr. Pence “will release his tax returns in the near future.” Mr. Trump has said he will not release his tax returns because he says he is under an audit from the Internal Revenue Service. Mr. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, said on CNN on Wednesday that he will not allow Mr. Trump to make his tax returns public until the audit is completed. On the form, Mr. Pence listed as assets a defined-benefit Indiana pension worth up to $1 million and up to $30,000 in other state retirement accounts. He has at most $45,000 in cash and college savings accounts and at least $95,000 in student loans taken out for his three children. He doesn’t list any holdings in stocks, mutual funds or rental property. Those totals don’t include the value of any real estate that he doesn’t rent out. And it doesn’t include any federal pension or defined-contribution retirement plan he has from his time in the U.S. House of Representatives. Those assets aren’t required to be listed on the form, which is designed to reveal conflicts of interest, not net worth.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/18/upshot/as-more-older-people-seek-work-they-are-put-into-old-person-jobs.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The rules of the job market aren’t the same for older workers. As men and women 55 and older looking for employment probably suspect, at a certain point the kinds of jobs available to them narrow significantly. New research by Matthew Rutledge, an economist at the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, found that they are increasingly being funneled into what he describes as “old-person” jobs. And not surprisingly, older workers with the least education have the narrowest set of opportunities, though Mr. Rutledge found this effect was small. It turns out that “old-person” jobs are a mix of high-skilled service work (like managers, sales supervisors and accountants) and low-skilled service work (like truck drivers, janitors and nursing aides). Absent from the top of the list are jobs calling for a fair amount of physical labor. Jobs in farming, manufacturing and repair represent less than a quarter of all new hires in this age bracket.)

— When the Pilot Is a Mom: Accommodating New Motherhood at 30,000 Feet – ANNALYN KURTZ  (DIERSEN: During the 1990s, to attract and to keep young female employees, GAO gutted its smoking room in its Chicago office and turned it into a lactation room.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/17/business/when-the-captain-is-mom-accommodating-new-motherhood-at-30000-feet.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Boarding a flight can feel like stepping into a time capsule — men typically fly the plane, while most flight attendants are still women. Which is why a female pilot from Delta Air Lines did something dramatic at a union meeting recently. Standing before her male colleagues, the captain unbuttoned her uniform, strapped a breast pump over the white undershirt she wore underneath, and began to demonstrate the apparatus. As the machine made its typical “chug, chug, chug” noise, attendees squirmed in their seats, looked at their feet and shuffled papers. It was the latest episode in what has proved to be a difficult workplace issue to solve: how to accommodate commercial airline pilots who are balancing new motherhood. It is a question that some employers have answered by creating leave policies or lactation rooms. But the flight deck of a jumbo jet isn’t a typical workplace. Pilots are exempt from a provision in the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to accommodate new mothers. At 30,000 feet, the issue touches not only on pilot privacy, but also aircraft safety. At Delta, a group of women pilots have banded together through a private Facebook page and have approached their union with formal proposals for paid maternity leave — unheard-of at the major airlines — because they say they would like to stay home to breast-feed their babies. At Frontier Airlines, four female pilots are suing the company for discrimination, seeking the option of temporary assignments on the ground while pregnant or nursing. While their proposals differ, all say they aim for one thing: to avoid situations in which pilots have been leaving the cockpit in midflight for as long as 20 minutes, the amount of time often required to pump breast milk.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: There are many demographic fault lines emerging in this year’s presidential campaign, but few are deeper than the division among likely voters based on educational attainment. Those with the least number of years of education are far more likely to support Donald Trump, while those who have had the most schooling are much more likely to back Hillary Clinton, according to a Bloomberg Politics national poll released this week. “The presence or absence of a college degree is more predictive of the vote in this election than we’ve seen in past elections,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer, who oversees many political surveys for Bloomberg Politics. Another trend may also be developing in the campaign that could pose a threat to Clinton: apathy among potential voters under age 35.)

— WARNING ISSUED OVER COMPUTER HACKS THAT CAN INJURE MOTORISTS  Activists urge resurrection of California case about ‘connected’ cars – BOB UNRUH
http://www.wnd.com/2016/08/warning-issued-over-computer-hacks-that-can-injure-motorists/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A team of privacy experts is urging a California appeals court to resurrect a case spotlighting the hacking of computers in cars, warning breaches could result not only in stolen identity but physical injury. “‘Connected vehicles’ expose American drivers to the risks of data breach, auto theft, and physical injury,” the Electronic Privacy Information Center asserted in a friend-of-the-court brief to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. They, and others, are asking that a lawsuit out of San Francisco be restored. The case, Helene Cahen v. Toyota, focuses on the electronic monitoring and Internet connectivity built into cars. A trial judge dismissed the case for lack of standing, but the brief contends the ruling should be reversed. And it’s no longer just about privacy, it’s about public safety, too, the brief argues. “The internal computer systems for these vehicles are subject to hacking, unbounded data collection, and broad-scale cyber attack,” the brief explains. “Despite this extraordinary risk, car manufacturers are expanding the reach of networked vehicles that enable third party access to driver data and vehicle operational systems. “The plaintiffs in this case seek the opportunity to present legal claims stemming from the defendants’ sale of vehicles that place them at risk. That should be allowed to proceed.” WND reported a year ago when two U.S. senators proposed the SPY Car Act of 2015 to create privacy standards for computer systems that control today’s generation of electronics-heavy vehicles. The proposal came just as a Wired.com contributor reported hackers who set him up in a new vehicle were able to take over its controls while he was driving at 70 mph. “As the two hackers remotely toyed with the air-conditioning, radio and windshield wipers, I mentally congratulated myself on my courage under pressure,” wrote Andy Greenberg at Wired in an article headlined “Hackers remotely kill a Jeep on the highway.” In the 2015 article, he reported, suddenly his vehicle slowed to a crawl, an 18-wheeler =approached from behind and “the experiment had ceased to be fun,” he wrote. Privacy advocates have warned since 2011 about in-car tracking and other computer devices. Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center wrote then that data from embedded “black boxes” in vehicles could provide unwanted information to state agencies. Later, the systems were upgraded, connecting vehicles to the Internet. Greenberg explained that the industry’s Uconnect is prompting questions. It’s an Internet-connected computer feature in hundreds of thousands of Fiat Chrysler cars, SUVs and trucks that controls the vehicles’ entertainment and navigation, enables phone calls and provides a Wi-Fi hot spot. Greenberg noted the cell connection also “lets anyone who knows the car’s IP address gain access from anywhere in the country.” The hackers with whom he was working, he said, have “only tested their full set of physical hacks, including targeting transmission and braking systems, on a Jeep Cherokee, though they believe that most of their attacks could be tweaked to work on any Chrysler vehicle with the vulnerable Uconnect head unit.” EPIC already has written extensively about the “Internet of Things,” explaining how various technologies communicate with each other through systems such as IPv6, RFID, Wi-Fi and GPS in appliances, smartphones, wearable computers and other devices. “The ubiquity of connected devices would enable [the] collection of data about sensitive behavior patterns, which could be used in unauthorized ways or by unauthorized individuals,” EPIC said. With “340 trillion” Internet Protocol addresses available, there’s no problem with assigning each vehicle one, the article explained. The new brief argues that some of these issues need to be adjudicated so that American consumers know what they’re getting into. In dismissing the case, the court “underestimated the substantial risk to public safety of connected cars and misconstrued the plaintiffs’ invasion of privacy claim. Whether or not the court ultimately agrees with the allegations presented, they are clearly sufficient to establish Article III standing,” the brief argues. Additionally, the “court’s conclusion is also wrong because it fundamentally misunderstands the security vulnerabilities created by connected cars,” EPIC writes. “Cars today are dependent on extraordinarily complex onboard computer systems. According to the Government Accountability Office, the typical modern high-end car contains over 100 million lines of code – substantially more than a Boeing 787 passenger airline[r], which contains 6.5 million lines of code, or an F-22 U.S. Air Force jet fighter, which contains 1.7 million lines. … As these vehicles have become more complex, the potential for software errors and related vulnerabilities correspondingly rise.” However, the brief notes, “car manufacturers have failed to take adequate steps to address these vulnerabilities.” Since first appearing in the 1970s, “electronic control units” in cars “have grown in complexity, replacing or controlling many mechanical functions. The typical modern vehicle now relies on computerization for almost everything from ‘engine management to steering, braking, climate control, navigation, [and] infotainment,’” the brief says. By now, everything, “engine management system, brake controller, airbags, seatbelt pretensioners, door locks, gauge cluster, sound system, seat controls, communications systems and telematics units are all interconnected.” In short, that means “window switches have a potential path of communication to the brake controller, the entertainment system has a channel to communicate through to the vehicle’s airbags, and so on.” There also is no “authentication” system, “allowing anyone with access to the system, authorized or not, to control vehicle components,” it explains, with access available through Bluetooth or GPS. As a result, millions of cars on the road ‘are vulnerable and pose a serious security risk to their occupants and to others.” The warning followed: “Wide-scale malicious automobile hacking is no longer theoretical. The lower court failed to appreciate the nature and immediacy of the problem when it concluded that the threat is ‘speculative.’ Although a full-scale remote car hijacking is certainly a serious risk to car owners and others …. Hijacking is not the only risk… Connected cars leave consumers open to car theft, data theft, and other forms of attack as well. These attacks are not speculative; many customers have already suffered due to vulnerable car systems.” Ransomware attacks and electronic disabling are just a few of the problems that already have been reported.“Connected vehicles raise significant public safety concerns that the courts cannot ignore. One company has already recalled 1.4 million vehicles because of the risk of remote hacking,” the brief says. And some 20 states regulate the collection and use of driver data. “But wide scale malicious automobile hacking is certainly imminent, if not already occurring,” EPIC says. Earlier this year, WND columnist Craige McMillan warned: “Let’s face it: Hacking these vehicles isn’t a possibility; it’s a certainty. It might be a kid spoofing you, trying to make you crash. Maybe a gang that’s going to reprogram your destination and part out both you and your vehicle. Heck, they could even operate from overseas via your onboard Internet. “Professional criminal gangs already orchestrate crashes on freeways and busy streets to bilk insurance companies; why wouldn’t they turn to hacking as well? A skilled team of such experts could probably hack you right up into a semi tractor trailer, bolt the door and take you and the vehicle anywhere they wanted.” His concern was for the fully computerized, self-driving vehicles. “Somehow, self-driving cars just don’t seem very well thought out to me. The penalty for not thinking this out before we do it is going to be very large, indeed.”)

Our society and economy has rapidly changed over the past few decades, and they’ve watched their way of life crumble. Their jobs are gone and they can no longer afford to send their kids to college. At the same time, their “silent majority” is disappearing as the American populous rapidly becomes more diverse, and the people who were once disenfranchised minorities are granted a leg up. The men who bought into the American Dream are now frustrated that the social contract they felt entitled too has been broken and that they have been forgotten. And in the midst of this anger, they’ve latched onto someone they feel can make it all right again: Donald J. Trump)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, earned adjusted gross income of $10.6 million in 2015 and paid $3.6 million in federal income taxes, according to a tax return her campaign released today as it sought to draw a contrast with her Republican rival, Donald Trump. The couple paid an effective tax rate of 34.2 percent and donated 9.8 percent of their adjusted gross income to charity—including a $1 million gift to the Clinton Family Foundation—according to the return. Today’s release adds to eight years of returns that Hillary Clinton’s campaign made public last year. “All told, the Clintons have made their tax returns public for every year dating back to 1977,” according to a campaign news release. In releasing the return, along with 10 years of tax information for her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton’s campaign once again tried to create a contrast between her and Trump over transparency in their personal finances.)

JOLIET PATCH
— Fake Newspapers Misleading Will, DuPage County Residents: State Senator  Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant is asking all candidates to sever communications with the papers. – Scott Viau  (DIERSEN: When will Scott Viau write an article about newspapers, television stations, radio stations, websites, etc. that deny that they are arms of Democrat Party but act like they are arms of the Democrat Party?)
http://patch.com/illinois/joliet/fake-newspapers-misleading-will-dupage-county-residents-state-senator
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Newspapers distributed recently in Will and DuPage counties are actually political mailings funded by radio show host Dan Proft and Gov. Bruce Rauner. According to 49th District State Sen. Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, who issued a news release warning residents, Proft and Rauner fund the papers through the Liberty Principles PAC. Proft is chairman and treasurer of the Illinois Liberty Principles PAC. Proft, who hosts a radio show on AM 560 with Amy Jacobson, has long been a behind-the-scenes guy in Republican politics, working on Senate campaigns for Jack Ryan and Alan Keyes, gubernatorial campaigns for Patrick O’Malley and Steven Rauschenberger, and for several Republican municipal officials. Proft ran for governor himself in the 2010 GOP primary. The papers, as listed by the Illinois Press Association, are Chambana Sun, DuPage Policy Journal, East Central Reporter, Kankakee Times, Lake County Gazette, McHenry Times, Metro East Sun, North Cook News, Rock Island Today, Sangamon Sun, SW Illinois News, West Central Reporter and West Cook News. Not included in the IPA’s list is the Will County Gazette, but its website is nearly identical in layout and design to the other papers’ websites. It also lists the same publisher, Locality Labs. The IPA issued a statement saying the papers are not members of the association, nor are they eligible for inclusion: Obviously, the IPA respects the First Amendment protections of freedom of speech and freedom of the press which allows each of us the right to speak freely, and publish newspapers or newsletters if we wish. While imitation is the highest form of flattery, the IPA cautions readers to become as news literate as possible; that is, to try to determine the source behind the news and information they receive and to question the legitimacy, integrity and intent of both the source and the message. “I echo the IPA’s warning that everyone who receives these publications seriously question their integrity,” said Bertino-Tarrant in a news release. “This is not about the First Amendment, this is about a super PAC going to extreme lengths to mislead people in order to push a political agenda.” The network of fake papers were found by the Illinois State Board of Elections to be in violation of the Campaign Disclosure Act for not including “paid for” attributions and in violation of Illinois law that prohibits Independent Expenditure PACs from colluding with candidates for the newspapers’ interviews with single-party candidates, Bertino-Tarrant said. “Despite the Board’s rulings, the fake papers continue to conduct interviews with candidates and multiple print editions of the papers, including The Will County Gazette and DuPage Policy Journal, fail to list a ‘paid for,’” she said. Locality Labs is reportedly run by Brian Timpone, who did not return a phone message seeking information on the newspapers. Emails sent to the Will County Gazette and the DuPage Policy Journal were not returned. The websites do not list a phone number. Timpone previously ran Journatic, which was fired by the Chicago Tribune for plagiarism and using fake bylines, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. Will County Republican State Senate Candidate Michelle Smith has appeared in the Will County Gazette and the DuPage Policy Journal numerous times, according to Bertino-Tarrant. Smith’s campaign spokesman, Jack DeMeulenaere, said it’s important to reach out directly to voters. “Which is why our campaign conducts interviews with a variety of news organizations and citizens groups, in compliance with election laws,” he said in an email to Patch. Bertino-Tarrant is asking all candidates to sever any communications with the papers. “Voters deserve integrity with their news, not political propaganda masquerading as news,” she said in a news release.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— Journalism’s double standard  Major media go rogue in siding with Clinton against Trump – Joseph A. Morris
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/aug/11/journalisms-double-standard-covering-hillary-clint/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Every time a David Duke or some other marginal Klan-connected or neo-Nazi lowlife crawls out from under a rock and gratuitously endorses Donald Trump (or anyone else, particularly a Republican or a conservative), the mainstream media call breathless attention to the news. They further demand that Mr. Trump or the other endorsee renounce the unsolicited and unwanted endorsement.  It’s a brilliant stratagem by the media. There is an inexhaustible supply of otherwise ignored extremists who rise to the bait: Endorsing Donald Trump or a respectable Republican or conservative is the one sure way for a bigot or an extremist to get a minute’s worth of air time and six inches of ink. It also has the effect of tainting the supposedly supported candidate by association and advances the meme that Mr. Trump, the Republican Party or the conservative movement somehow makes it safe for racists, anti-Semites and bigots of all stripes to strut their stuff among decent people. But when the father of the homosexual-hating jihadi who killed 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando showed up at a Clinton rally, applauded the Democratic presidential nominee and her campaign, the media played it quite differently. Hillary Clinton responded to questions not by repudiating the endorsement or the father’s suggestion that it was actually unnecessary for his son to kill the gays he targeted because Allah himself would have taken care of them in due time, but by saying merely that the campaign neither invited him nor knew he would be at the rally. Somehow, that was deemed an adequate response. And now, a left-wing David Duke of the most extreme variety has endorsed Mrs. Clinton. Yet it has neither raised the hackles of the media nor resulted in demands that her campaign explain or denounce the endorsement. Her endorser is no less a figure than the chairman of the Communist Party of the United States.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Top Illinois GOP donor William Kunkler: Hopes Trump is ‘humiliated’ on Election Day – Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps are counting on Trump to lose big time in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America.  Of course, anti-Trumps are already making plans to a) first get rid of Trump supporters in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America and b) then get rid of all those in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, and in America who do not share their hatred of Trump.  If you are a member any of the following groups and you are not shouting your hated of Trump, the anti-Trumps will get rid of you: Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or your whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  If you are of German national origin and/or if you are a draft dodger, you are in especially big trouble.  Anti-Trumps are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their means.  Anti-Trumps are disciples of Saul Alinsky. If/when the anti-Trumps come to destroy you, what will you do?)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-donald-trump-illinois-donor-humiliated-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran Republican campaign donor who’s pushing for immigration reform says he hopes “Trump and his supporters are humiliated” on Election Day. William Kunkler, a private equity executive who backed Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination, said he wasn’t voting for the GOP nominee and expected Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would become president and move quickly to push immigration changes. “Republicans will be licking their wounds after the effects of Trump leading the ticket and should be willing to deal with (Clinton) on sensible reform,” Kunkler, co-chair of the Illinois Business Immigration Council, said at a panel hosted by the group and FWD.us, the immigration advocacy organization founded by Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg. Kunkler — who backed and helped bundle campaign cash for previous GOP nominees including Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — was one of the few speakers to openly mention Trump by name to an audience at the tech incubator TechNexus in the Lyric Opera building. From the launch of his campaign in June of last year, Trump has vowed to build a wall on the Mexican border, called some immigrants from Mexico “criminals” and “rapists,” proposed to ban Muslims from immigrating and later expanded his plan to include immigrants from counties engaged in supporting terrorism. Calling Trump’s rhetoric “ugly and hateful,” Kunkler noted “the number of Latinos registered to vote has increased substantially (from 2012), and the turnout of this group is expected to be much higher to fight back against Trump. I support that fight and hope Trump and his supporters are humiliated at the polls.” John Rowe, former chairman of Exelon Corp. and another co-chair of the business council, said he found this election season “especially challenging for those of us who generally vote Republican.” Along with belief in “moderate taxes (and) individual responsibility,” Rowe said like-minded Republicans “also believe in people.” “We have an opportunity as a country to continue to make this melting pot work. It’s a challenge. We have no alternative but to make it work,” he said. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, who represents the Miami area, appeared on a panel with Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk, North Shore Rep. Robert Dold and state Senate GOP leader Christine Radogno. The Florida congressman said he was optimistic a comprehensive reform plan that addressed border security and people in this country illegally could be accomplished. Kirk and Dold have said they do not support Trump, while Diaz-Balart has said he will vote for the GOP nominee. “Eventually the (critical) noise has to settle, the window of opportunity will open — it doesn’t have to open much — and it requires the extremes to kind of just shut the hell up,” Diaz-Balart said. “I’m convinced that noise, which is a lot of noise, is a small part of our country.” Radogno said the “red meat” being fed low-information voters about immigrants and immigration needs to be replaced with education. “I think that one of the worst things that we can do, and we see that going on right now and we see it in both parties, is making immigration a political issue, and what we do is feed people’s lack of information, the misinformation that they have. I think if people are educated, they understand … that immigration makes sense from an economic perspective, from a business perspective.”)

— SNEED: Malia’s timing? Hmmm. The web was burning up with a RadarOnline report Wednesday first daughter Malia Obama, 18, was snapped smoking what looked like pot while twerking away at Lollapalooza in Chicago on Sunday, July 31. But hang on. Here’s a timeline: Longtime pal/attorney Brendan O’Connor left Sneed a phone message that Sunday to report he had just spotted Malia and her girlfriends at Lollapalooza at 4 p.m.; observed them for about 45 minutes; noted the retinue of Secret Service agents; and was stunned by Malia’s impressive composure. “Let me tell you, the Obamas would be very proud of the classy way Malia was handling herself,” O’Connor’s phone message stated. “I did not engage with them, but I was only 20 feet away,” O’Connor told Sneed on Wednesday, shortly after the alleged pot story broke. “Malia was sitting on the lawn with six girlfriends like normal kids, no VIP treatment. No guys in tow. All very respectful, and all behaving better than the average idiots attending the concerts. The Secret Service had a perimeter around her. And no one appeared to be drinking or smoking. They had walked around to see the group Years & Years and the singer Halsey.” Less than an hour later, RadarOnline claimed, Malia was tagged by a witness inhaling what smelled like pot passed to her by some guy while watching the Bryson Tiller concert. “I’d be very surprised,” said O’Connor. “The Secret Service may have been wearing casual shirts and summer shorts, but they were out in full force.” Well, hey.

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps as “Will Trump energize the Latino vote?” Ever-increasingly, Democrats shout at Latinos that Republicans have caused all the problems that Latinos have, are causing all the problems that Latinos have, and will forever cause all the problems that Latinos have.  If Clinton wins, what actions will she have Latinos take against Republicans?  Of course, she will have Latinos boycott Republicans, but what stronger actions will she have them take?)

— Donald Trump Says He’s OK With Losing the Election – Alexandra Mondalek  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, if/when Trump loses, anti-Trumps will first destroy Trump’s supporters and then they will destroy those who do not hate Trump.)
http://time.com/money/4448134/donald-trump-ok-losing-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Thursday while calling in to CNBC’s “Squawk Box” morning show, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he’s “ok” with losing the election. “All I do is tell the truth, and if at the end of 90 days I’ve fallen short because I’m somewhat politically correct, even though I’m supposed to be the smart one, and even though I’m supposed to have a lot of good ideas, it’s ok, you know, I go back to a, a very good way of life. It’s not what I’m looking to do I think we’re going to have a victory, but we’ll see.” The most recent Real Clear Politics poll shows Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by almost eight points, echoing Trump’s implication: He may very well lose. Of course, the poll numbers follow a series of gaffes the GOP nominee has made in the last few weeks, including making off-kilter comments on sexual harassment and insulting a Gold Star military family. Consistent with his past behavior, Trump hasn’t apologized for the political missteps, either. So, what would Trump do after the election? He could go back to managing his real estate business, though he’s not hurting for work (even though Trump-branded businesses have suffered.) He’s currently worth about $4.5 billion — or $10 billion, according to him.)

— No break for Blago; judge won’t reduce ex-gov.’s prison sentence – Jon Seidel and Tina Sfondeles  (DIERSEN: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in giving me a lifetime pension sentence.  Constructively, by forcing me to take their early retirement “offer,” in today’s dollars, they put me on administrative leave for the rest of my life at $50,720/year, or 42% of my $120,427/year salary.  Why did they punish me that way?  I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, and, since 1988, I had been an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.  Previously they had punished me by a) not promoting me beyond GS-13, b) keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and c) forcing me to take an $18,459 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

http://www.gopusa.com/?p=13537
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The mainstream media have gone to great lengths to avoid reporting on controversies with the potential to damage President Obama’s reputation or legacy. The endeavor to politicize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) became an article of impeachment against Richard Nixon in 1974. But the actual politicization of the IRS under Barack Obama is treated as a phony scandal ginned up by Fox News, talk radio and the tea party movement. So it’s no surprise that recent news stories about the IRS scandal have been met with nearly complete silence from the mainstream media. The goal is clear: if the media ignore this scandal long enough, it will be treated and dismissed as old news.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois  Trump in Lawrence Township, New Jersey, May 19, 2016: “You’ve let go of thousands of people, and you’ve left, in this case, Indiana, in Chicago, and all of the different places … We are going to win Illinois. We are going to win Indiana. We are going to win these states.”  ABC News rating: Solid Democratic. If Trump is able to pick up Illinois, it would be the first time in almost three decades a Republican has done so. With Democratic strongholds like Chicago delivering a large number of votes, the Democrat has won by double digits in the past six presidential elections.)

MONEY MAGAZINE
— Why Trump and Clinton Need to Join the Conversation on Retirement Security – Dan Kadlec
http://time.com/money/4445086/trump-clinton-retirement-security/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Imagine if the candidates harped on the savings and retirement crisis. Even though 20% of Americans have no retirement savings, only 8% list retirement security as a top concern, the survey found. The Government Accountability Office has found that about half of all households near retirement age have zero retirement savings and no pension other than Social Security. So where is this conversation among our would-be leaders? The public is more than ready. Some 68% of American workers complained last fall that presidential hopefuls were not talking enough about retirement issues, according to a poll from the Financial Services Roundtable. In a major speech on the economy this week, Republican nominee Trump didn’t utter a single word about retirement, longevity or aging. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming speech on the economy isn’t likely to raise the issue either. Her website talks about retirement almost exclusively in terms of Social Security, which she vows to expand by raising taxes on the wealthy. This at least acknowledges the savings crisis. But it also suggests a woeful misunderstanding of how to fix it.)
