FEDERAL NEWS RADIO
— Surprise! People still hate the federal government – Mike Causey  (Of course, needless-to-say, because of that hatred, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes always remind everyone that a) I was a federal employee for almost 30 years and b) I have been a federal retiree for almost 19 years. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes 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://federalnewsradio.com/federal-drive/2016/08/surprise-people-still-hate-the-government/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you are just back — whether from an exotic vacation or an economical stay at home — welcome. You haven’t missed much. It won’t take long to bring you up to speed. So here it goes: Congress, which was gone when you left, is still away on one of its many extended 2016 breaks. Appropriations bills (again) have not been passed, so we will have the whole CR (continuing resolution) thing to deal with to avoid a government shutdown just before the election. Despite its dismal track record, experts predict that 90 percent of all incumbents — House, Senate, Democrats or Republicans — will be reelected, as per usual. If you are a white collar fed, a 1.6 percent pay raise is still on track. Congress could raise or lower it, but they probably won’t. With two months to go in the cost-of-living adjustment countdown, federal-military-Social Security retirees are looking at a very, very small COLA in January. The exact amount won’t be announced until mid-October. As of today, it stands at 0.23 percent. No new word on buyouts or early retirement offers. After four years in the works, the phased retirement program is up and running, in some places. So far, fewer than 100 feds have applied for the part-time mentoring program. Many workers say it’s not from lack of interest, but that their agencies aren’t offering it. Something else, what was it? Oh yes, the American public still hates you. Or at least has the most negative feelings toward the government of any other organization or profession. You rank even lower than lawyers and the media.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-searching-for-financial-jobs-0828-biz-20160825-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: About eight years after the financial crisis, the turmoil that began on Wall Street and then drifted into companies of all types has left the ranks of the unemployed and underemployed heavy with people who once enjoyed senior financial positions in a variety of industries. They face a sharply reduced market for the types of jobs they used to take for granted. Rosengard stated adamantly: “Banking is not a stable position.” Since the crash, she’s had well-paying short-term consulting positions and poor-paying temp work, but nothing like the security she used to have. Now, as she continues her search, “It’s like a twilight zone. You are either offered a position that has good pay, but a position way below your capabilities, or you are offered a top position with no pay.” Rosengard isn’t alone. She’s beginning to attend meetings of the Financial Executives Networking Group, or FENG, that are filled with people who’ve gone to premier MBA programs, guided companies through multimillion-dollar decisions, had titles like chief financial officer, treasurer and vice president of finance, and generally excelled at what they’ve done. At a recent downtown Chicago event in an Addison Group boardroom, Rosengard and 31 others exchanged job leads with one another and listened to a motivational speaker. “You aren’t getting recognized for your skills,” said the speaker, Conor Cunneen. “I know it’s a pain in the butt when you know you can do the job with your eyes closed, and they are going to give it to someone new at it, taking half the salary.” The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that there has been almost no recovery in the number of financial positions in Illinois since the financial crisis set off thousands of layoffs. During summer 2006, as the economy seemed strong and few worried about jobs, financial positions peaked at 335,100 in Illinois. But by March 2011, only 283,000 remained, and by June this year the numbers had improved only slightly to 295,200. Nationally, many of the 718,000 financial jobs that disappeared have returned, but commercial banking is still short more than 58,000 jobs. Positions in leasing and rental equipment are down 93,200. “Whatever the government says, the recession continues,” said Matt Bud, national chairman of FENG, which holds sessions like the Chicago meetup in cities throughout the country. About 50,000 out-of-work or underemployed executives are members nationwide.)

— Clinton invokes father’s memory to hit Trump on business – AP  (DIERSEN: By way of contrast, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that my parents, my grandparents, my great grandparents, and the rest of my ancestors were German Lutherans and hint/imply/argue/shout that because of that, a) they were racists, sexists, and bigots; b) I benefited tremendously from their racism, sexism, and bigotry; and c) I therefore should pay the price of Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
http://qctimes.com/news/state-and-regional/illinois/clinton-invokes-father-s-memory-to-hit-trump-on-business/article_52853bbe-1908-5442-b7c4-1c7bdcfa854d.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hillary Clinton has landed on a very personal counterpunch to what she says is Donald Trump’s checkered business past: her dad. As the Democratic presidential nominee works to undercut Trump’s economic record and promote her plans for small businesses, she is invoking memories of her late father’s Chicago drapery business. Recalling Hugh Rodham hard at work making and printing curtains for hotels and office buildings, Clinton argues that he would have been “stiffed” in a deal with the celebrity businessman. “He expected to be paid when he showed up,” Clinton said recently during an event in Warren, Michigan. “He did the work. He paid for the supplies and the labor he often hired to help him on big jobs. I can’t imagine what would have happened to my father and his business if he had gotten a contract from Trump.” With fuzzy memories of her father, Clinton hopes to remind voters that despite her years in public life that have left her a multimillionaire, she comes from a middle-class background and understands the life of a small-business owner. She also wants to contrast her biography with that of Trump, who was raised by a successful real estate developer and has drawn criticism for his treatment of small businesses during his career. Trump has promoted his business record as a key qualification for the White House. But Trump casinos failed on several occasions. When the Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey went bankrupt in the early 1990s, some contractors who worked on the property went under because Trump’s company didn’t pay what they were owed, according to interviews with The Associated Press. In a statement to the AP, Clinton said her father’s business gave her “a sense of responsibility,” adding that she was “living proof that a successful small business is at the core of the basic bargain in America, that if you work hard and do your part, you can make your own dreams and those of your children a reality.”)

From what I see, Holmberg would join my critics/opponents in demonizing me, in denigrating me, and in condemning me as someone who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and who has always been privileged.  Holmberg would stress the new cars and collector cars that I bought, the real estate that I bought, the college degrees, professional certifications, and professional license that I earned, the salary that I was paid, the money that I saved for retirement, the retirement benefits that I have, etc.  Holmberg would hint/imply/argue/shout that I got all of the aforesaid a) because I benefited tremendously from my parents’, from my grand parents’, from my great grand parents’, and from the rest of my ancestors’ racism, sexism, and bigotry; b) because I avoided the draft; and c) because my wife and gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents.)
https://chicagomaroon.com/2016/08/27/student-president-calls-free-speech-letter-messed-up/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Student Government President Eric Holmberg said in an interview that Dean John “Jay” Ellison’s letter condemning trigger warnings and intellectual safe spaces exploited a “false narrative” of coddled millennials for publicity. “It’s a messed up letter. I think the tone is condescending,” he told The Maroon. “The University is creating this threat of trigger warnings and safe spaces that really isn’t an active conversation on campus.”  Holmberg called the letter “hypocritical,” saying that the University hasn’t done its part to engage in challenging discourse with its students. He noted that activists have struggled to get administrators to attend their meetings. “Of anyone else on campus, the administration is far more fearful of challenge and discomfort than any student I know,” he said. “It’s ironic that during my time at the University of Chicago, administrators have continuously sought to create a comfortable space for themselves free of challenge by avoiding engagement with student leaders,” he said in a statement. “It’s a bit hypocritical, but I see why they’re doing it,” he said. “A couple of benefits: 1) Fundraising—I’m sure President Zimmer’s Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal yesterday was good for polarizing around this topic and making it seem like it’s a big issue on campus. 2) It creates this specter of trigger warnings and safe spaces based on false narratives of coddled millennials. That doesn’t really exist. There hasn’t been organized activism around trigger warnings on campus.”)

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/roger-ailes-opposition-research-gabriel-sherman/2016/08/26/id/745425/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two years before Gabriel Sherman published his book about Roger Ailes, the now-former Fox News CEO amassed a 400-page dossier on the New York magazine editor seeking to discredit him and his work, according to news reports. “We always wondered why Ailes was so obsessed and paranoid about Gabe’s book,” a former Fox News reporter told CNN’s Brian Stelter. Sherman’s work — “The Loudest Voice in the Room” — was first published in January 2014. When reminded of the lawsuit filed last month by former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson alleging sexual harassment that ultimately led to Alies’ subsequent resignation, the ex-reporter then said, “maybe we know why.” Ailes, 76, has denied Carlson’s accusations. He remains a Fox consultant through 2018. According to Stelter, the document was a book-length memo dated Jan. 5, 2012. He likened it to “opposition research” against an adversary in a political campaign.)

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/careers/the-future-of-work/job-candidates-checking-references-on-their-potential-employers/article31580806/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The difference this Labour Day is that the hiring dynamics are changing. Employers find, increasingly, that top prospects are checking their references. “They are very, very sophisticated job seekers now,” said Laura Williams, founder and principal of Williams HR Law and Williams HR Consulting Inc. of Markham, Ont. “Social media platforms, LinkedIn included, create opportunities to identify past employees of an organization. The trend I am seeing is that when people become viable candidates, they will do a search, find someone who worked there and call,” Ms. Williams said in an interview. “As an employer, you are vulnerable to any candidate learning about the real deal by just contacting someone who was there before.” Research by the professional networking site LinkedIn has found that the majority of its members are receptive to an approach from other employers but are unlikely to job hop without knowing “what it’s really like” to work there, said Julie Dossett, a marketing and communications specialist with LinkedIn Canada, which has more than 12.5 million members. There’s still movement, of course. “We are entering an age where loyalty is decreasing. In fact, while more than half of the workforce (67 per cent) say they are satisfied with their jobs, nearly a quarter (23 per cent) still see themselves leaving by the end of the year,” LinkedIn reported in its 2016 talent trends survey. There tends to be a lot more give and take in the interview process, especially when employees have the option of staying in their current jobs. Candidates want to know why the position is open, what happened to the previous person in the role, and what they can expect in terms of career advancement if they join the company, Ms. Dossett said in an interview. They want “honest and up-front” specifics of responsibilities and workload, and will press recruiters to describe “a realistic day in the life of a person in that job, good and bad.”)

— Rauner Backs Up Rhetoric With Cash
http://foxillinois.com/news/local/rauner-backs-up-rhetoric-with-cash
http://foxillinois.com/news/local/gov-rauner-backs-up-promises
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We aren’t going to let the machine, the corrupt political machine, out spend us two, three, four, five times to one like they’ve done in other legislative races,” Governor Bruce Rauner said. “They’ve crushed us because they’ve got all that insider money.” Governor Bruce Rauner is backing up his promises with cash. He’s giving another $5 million to the Illinois Republican party. That brings his total up to $16 million so far this election cycle. House speaker Madigan runs a committee called the Democratic Majority which had $2.7 million on hand at the end of June. Rauner is hoping to win more seats in the general assembly this election, taking away the Democratic Super Majority.

— Trump’s ideological test for immigrants is absurd – Cepeda  (DIERSEN: If you come to America illegally, if you stay in America illegally, and/or if you bring others to America illegally, you shout that you do not respect the rule of law.)

— How to find the perfect RSO  Stay involved on campus by joining an RSO. – Vivienne Henning  (DIERSEN: Which RSOs promote dependency on government, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, race and gender based preference giving, age discrimination, pot, booze, gambling, and other vices?  Which RSOs advocate getting rid of those who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors?)
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://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.)

— Wheaton developing guidelines for honorary street names – Bob Goldsborough
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/wheaton/news/ct-wheaton-honorary-street-names-20160817-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mayor Mike Gresk proposed adding another requirement to the guidelines: that the honorees be deceased. He referred to disgraced former U.S. House Speaker and Wheaton College alumnus J. Dennis Hastert, who admitted earlier this year that he had molested boys decades earlier while a high school wrestling coach and who currently is in prison for related crimes involving structuring bank withdrawals and making false statements to federal investigators. In 2007, Wheaton College named its center for economics, government and public policy after Hastert, only to strip his name from the center last year after he was indicted. “I’ve always worried in the back of my brain that somebody goes off the reservation on you,” Gresk said. “There are myriad examples of that. In this very town, on a certain college campus, where the (Hastert) name came down in about 40 seconds (after he was indicted). I’m always dubious when I see … centers and baseball fields named after living people.” Councilwoman Suzanne Fitch echoed Gresk’s concerns, saying that “I think it becomes less political if it just applies to deceased individuals.”)

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.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Chicago Fire soccer team shuts down anti-gay chant – John Kass
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-chicago-fire-anti-gay-soccer-chant-kass-0804-20160803-column.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It was “Pride” night. The Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus had finished a fine rendition of the national anthem before Sunday’s game with the New York Red Bulls. That’s when Rodriguez walked into the center circle and did something the rest of the soccer world doesn’t seem able to do. He looked up into the stands and announced that any fan found to be using the infamous anti-gay Mexican soccer chant would be booted out of the stadium. “An inappropriate and offensive chant has been used by some of our fans,” Rodriguez said. “It is unbecoming and certainly not reflective of the great city that we live in, and the best fans in major league soccer. “Please be advised that if the chant continues and you are found to be participating, you are subject to removal. If you are near fans using offensive language, please advise stadium security so we can handle that as well.” And all I could say was “bravo.” There were a few boos. But most of us applauded him. And I didn’t hear that chant once during the game. If you know soccer, you know the chant I’m talking about, a chant of one word: Puto. It means effeminate man whore. It is ugly and demeaning, directed at gay men in a macho culture, but at soccer games it is directed at the goalie of the opposing team.)

 

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Inmate may have to register as sex offender for flashing guard – Frank Main  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, if you disapprove of what “Savage Life” members do, Democrats and RINOs will viciously demonize, denigrate, and condemn you as being a racist, a sexist, a bigot, and even worse things.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/savage-life-inmate-to-register-as-sex-offender-for-flashing-guard/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the first time, a Cook County Jail inmate may be required to register as a sex offender for repeatedly exposing himself to correctional officers, a sheriff’s official said Thursday. Giovanni Rios, who is awaiting trial in a 2015 murder in Humboldt Park, was held in contempt of court Thursday by Judge Vincent Gaughan for allegedly exposing himself to a female guard on Wednesday, said Cara Smith, policy chief for Sheriff Tom Dart. Rios, 20, a member of the Savage Life jail gang, is charged with the Wednesday incident and two similar ones in the jail, Smith said. If convicted of all three charges, he would be required to register as a sex offender, she said. “It is tremendous to see these cases taken seriously,” she said, adding she believes it’s the first time anyone may be ordered to register as a sex offender for committing acts of indecent exposure in the jail. Rios is one of about 35 inmates who have identified themselves as members of Savage Life, a gang formed last year among inmates being held in maximum-security units. Their activities include physically attacking guards, throwing feces and urine at them, and exposing themselves and masturbating in the presence of female defense attorneys and correctional officers, Smith said. Since July 2015, jail officials have recorded hundreds of such incidents involving Savage Life but the incidents have decreased in recent months. One of the ways the sheriff’s office is combatting the behavior is to take away “good time” inmates earn in jail, Smith said. The office also is limiting visits and aggressively prosecuting Savage Life inmates for public indecency and other crimes, she said. Smith said she hopes the possibility of Rios becoming a registered sex offender sends a message to other Savage Life inmates. Even hardened criminals balk at the stigma of being labeled sex offenders, she said. Savage Life members recently expanded their perverse activities. They have been opening their own wounds and sticking sharp objects into their eyes to force guards to send them to the jail hospital. Most Savage Life members are in the maximum-security Division 9 and relish the chance to “take a walk” to another part of the jail — even the hospital, Smith said.)

— Pat Brady faces backlash for slamming Trump – Eric Stock  (DIERSEN: Of course, those who are anti-Trump promote Pat Brady.)
http://www.wjbc.com/2016/08/05/gop-insider-faces-backlash-for-slamming-trump/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Republican strategist said it’s not easy being a vocal critic of the party’s nominee for president. Former Illinois GOP chairman Pat Brady has been saying for months Donald Trump is unelectable. “One of the members of the national committee at the convention told me I need to quit being a Republican,” Brady said. “I didn’t know you could resign.” Brady is encouraging Republicans to focus on down-ticket races, including the hotly-contested U.S. Senate battle between Republican incumbent Mark Kirk and Democratic U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth. Brady told WJBC’s Scott Laughlin, Republicans who have been critical of Trump, including Kirk and U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, could get some blowback but are putting the country ahead of the party. Brady said Kinzinger’s recent announcement that he likely won’t vote for anyone in the presidential race won’t hurt his political future, even if some in the party try to run him out of office. “They can try, they are not going to beat him,” Brady said. “Adam is one of the best people we have in Congress he’s a smart guy. He’s a military guard. He’s a great public servant and I think people like and respect him.” Brady tells WJBC’s Scott Laughlin he wouldn’t be surprised if the Bloomington native runs for higher office in a few years.)

— Black Lives Matter Coalition Releases 1st Official Platform – Reuben Unrau
http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2016/08/02/black-lives-matter-coalition-releases-1st-official-platform
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The demands are organized into six categories with titles such as “Invest-Divest,” “Economic Justice,” “Community Control” and “Political Power.” Within each category, the agenda includes a list of more than 40 specific federal, state and local policies that could be applied to create solutions. The conglomerate calls for a variety of far-reaching reforms that address issues that extend beyond the subject of police brutality. Policy proposals include a call for universal health care, decriminalization of drug-related offenses, federal and state jobs programs, community control of law enforcement and the end of the death penalty. Perhaps the most striking item featured in the agenda is the demand for reparations, which contains a five-part plan to address various economic sectors affected by the legacy of slavery.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY ACTION
— The Cannibalization of the GOP –  Laurie Higgins
https://illinoisfamilyaction.org/2016/08/the-cannibalization-of-the-gop/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At this cultural moment, the GOP is the only party that defends marriage, the intrinsic rights of children (both prenatal and post-natal children), religious liberty, and the physical privacy rights of girls and boys and men and women. But the barbarians have breached the gate and are cannibalizing the GOP while it yet lives. Well-dressed, well-spoken barbarians but barbarians nonetheless. What accounts for the corruption of the GOP? There are numerous reasons including the childish moral reasoning of lawmakers like U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) who supports homoerotic faux-marriage because his son experiences homoerotic attraction. The fact that Portman’s son experiences homoerotic attraction does not change the nature of marriage or the moral status of homoerotic activity. And it’s foolish to believe that compassion dictates we must affirm everything our loved ones believe, feel, or desire. Would the fact that people we love experience polyamorous or “Genetic Sexual Attraction” change the nature of marriage or the moral status of sex between five people or between siblings? But foolish, self-referential moral reasoning is not the only cause of the transmogrification of the party. Another cause is the increasing number of Republicans—including those who identify as homosexual—who say the “social issues” are trivial and irrelevant with no substantive effect on the health and welfare of America. Ironically, while libertarian-leaning, (im)moderate, and homosexual Republicans proclaim the triviality and irrelevance of “social issues” to the survival and flourishing of America, Democrats pursue them like men and women possessed. Could it be that Democrats are able to see truths to which Republicans are blind?)

DAILY SIGNAL

http://dailysignal.com/2016/08/04/how-depaul-university-surrenders-to-the-mob/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Perhaps DePaul was afraid of offending Black Lives Matter, and looking politically incorrect. The protesters, exercising a heckler’s veto, were able to shut down the event. Afterward, DePaul’s president, the Rev. Dennis Holtschneider, purported to apologize by email to the College Republicans. But Holtschneider made sure to include his opinion of Yiannopoulos and other speakers of his “ilk,” whom he referred to as “self-serving provocateurs” whose “shtick” is “unworthy of university discourse.” Meanwhile, DePaul is more than happy to host controversial liberal speakers and events, such as a fundraiser for Rasmea Odeh, a convicted terrorist. By banning Shapiro from speaking because of the threat of a protest, DePaul’s administration is siding with students who disagree with his viewpoint rather than standing up to potential violence on campus. DePaul also is teaching its students not to engage in the “open discourse” the university purports to foster. It is showing them that they can silence opposing views with threats of protests and violence. “After all,” writes Jim DeMint, president of The Heritage Foundation, “the easiest way to win an argument is to tape your opponent’s mouth shut. Too many educators today think this is a good idea.” As a private institution, DePaul is not held to the same First Amendment standards as public universities. Kelly Sarabyn, a former fellow at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, argues that, nonetheless, the “longstanding purpose of the liberal arts and research universities is realized through free speech on campus, and students, faculty, and donors reasonably expect it to prevail.” Those groups may yet persuade universities to stand behind their commitments to free speech through advocacy and donations. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, perhaps courts could be persuaded, as Sarabyn argues they should be, to compel private schools to honor any express commitments to prospective students to honor free speech on campus—on the ground that students are enticed by and rely upon those commitments when choosing which schools to attend. Given the university president’s open animosity to speakers such as Yiannopoulos, the Shapiro incident raises the real possibility that DePaul administrators are all too happy to have an excuse to prevent students from being exposed to views that compete with their school’s own liberal ideology. Is it that DePaul administrators can’t keep their students safe and their speaking events secure? Or is it that they refuse to do so because citing “security concerns” to prevent conservative speakers from appearing on campus actually furthers their own ideological aims?)

— Stop calling Trump crazy – David M. Perry  (DIERSEN: Democrats are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their means.  They are disciples of Saul Alinsky.  If you do not become a Democrat, sooner or later, they will hint/imply/argue/shout that you are mentally ill.)
http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/04/opinions/stop-calling-trump-crazy-perry/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This week, Karen Bass, a Democratic congresswoman from California, launched a Change.org petition calling for Donald Trump to be diagnosed. She supported it by promoting the hashtag #DiagnoseTrump, and the topic took off. Her effort has received ample media coverage and trended nationally on Twitter for a while. And as it did, it became the latest manifestation of a problem I’ve been tracking for months now. With what seems to be increasing frequency, each time Trump does something objectionable, too many of his opponents want to blame mental illness as a way to erode his electoral chances. Yet characterizing Trump as “crazy” relies on the stigma of psychiatric disabilities to make a point. There are many grounds on which to criticize Donald Trump and to argue against his candidacy. But his mental health should not be one of them, because it’s a strategy that appeals to bigotry. Leveraging ableism to achieve electoral goals is no more acceptable than using racism, sexism, anti-gay sentiment, anti-Islamic sentiment, or any other form of prejudice. I don’t want Donald Trump to become president for lots of reasons. He routinely makes racist and sexist comments. He lies. I don’t trust him to make good decisions or to hire good people. The list of detriments goes on and on. Yet characterizing his erratic temperament or understanding of the truth as a product of mental illness, then arguing he’s unfit to lead because of that mental illness, sends a terrible message to the millions of people with diagnosed psychiatric disabilities who are trying to make their way through an ableist world. Don’t just take it from me. Many people with psychiatric disabilities and other diagnoses have been writing about this since Trump’s candidacy became serious, begging abled America to stop stigmatizing mental illness through armchair diagnoses of Donald Trump. Disability rights advocate Kit Mead, for example, recently wrote, “Discussing Trump’s mental health status is getting into the territory where people will use it to say that people with mental health needs can’t be effective candidates for public office if they choose to run.” Kim Sauder makes a similar argument, writing, “If the logic is that by framing Trump as having a mental illness makes him unfit for the presidency then the message is that mental illness is equated with incompetence.” Furthermore, Sauder writes, “Bigotry is not a mental illness.” Finn Gardiner notes that there are many ways to criticize someone with whom you disagree that do not rely on ableist concepts. “Call them wrong. Call them misguided. Call them terrible,” Gardiner writes, “But stop calling them crazy.” Emily Willingham made a similar point at Forbes, writing, “We can use specific terms about his personality (disagreeable) and temperament (toddler-ish) but not make attributions to a clinical disorder.” Avoiding pathologizing Donald Trump doesn’t mean surrendering a useful weapon in the quest to defeat him. Unfortunately, there’s a specific history of using disability as a weapon to attack political opponents at the highest levels in our society. In 1964, the cover of Fact Magazine read, “1,189 Psychiatrists Say Goldwater is Psychologically Unfit to be President!” The story called him paranoid, criticized him for his “infantile fantasies of revenge,” his relationship with his mother, a “dangerous lunatic,” and discussed alleged nervous breakdowns. Goldwater sued Fact and won. The American Psychiatrist Association, or APA, recognizing how dangerous it was to use mental health as a political weapon, issued the “Goldwater Rule,” forbidding psychiatrists from commenting on anyone’s mental state without personally examining them and receiving permission to go public. The APA was worried that people would conceal their mental health needs lest they be publicly shamed. And that’s just what happened in 1972, when Thomas Eagleton was dropped from the vice presidential slot on the Democratic ticket due to revelations that he had sought treatment for depression. A few years later, noted columnist Garry Wills argued that George Wallace was unfit to serve as president because a physical disability (he had been shot) might cover up a mental disability. And no one really knows if Reagan did in fact begin to show signs of Alzheimer’s while in office, as his son has alleged, but I can’t blame his team for concealing it if he did. Ironically, all this stigma about mental health and public office ignores history. One study found that half of all U.S. presidents showed symptoms of mental illness, often while in office, including widely acknowledged leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon Johnson. Such neuro-diversity is a core feature of humanity, so it’s not surprising that our leaders reflect the broader realities of our mental variations.)

— FRONT PAGE: College Students Protest, Alumni’s Fondness Fades and Checks Shrink – ANEMONA HARTOCOLLIS  (DIERSEN: What college(s) did you graduate from and in what year(s)?  I graduated from NIU in 1970, Loyola in 1976, DePaul in 1980, and IIT in 1997.  What do those at the college(s) that you graduated from think of you?  Sadly, from what I see, the majority of those a NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and ITT disapprove of me, despise me, if not hate me.  From what I see, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, those at colleges are increasingly anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/05/us/college-protests-alumni-donations.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scott MacConnell cherishes the memory of his years at Amherst College, where he discovered his future métier as a theatrical designer. But protests on campus over cultural and racial sensitivities last year soured his feelings. Now Mr. MacConnell, who graduated in 1960, is expressing his discontent through his wallet. In June, he cut the college out of his will. “As an alumnus of the college, I feel that I have been lied to, patronized and basically dismissed as an old, white bigot who is insensitive to the needs and feelings of the current college community,” Mr. MacConnell, 77, wrote in a letter to the college’s alumni fund in December, when he first warned that he was reducing his support to the college to a token $5. A backlash from alumni is an unexpected aftershock of the campus disruptions of the last academic year. Although fund-raisers are still gauging the extent of the effect on philanthropy, some colleges — particularly small, elite liberal arts institutions — have reported a decline in donations, accompanied by a laundry list of complaints. Alumni from a range of generations say they are baffled by today’s college culture. Among their laments: Students are too wrapped up in racial and identity politics. They are allowed to take too many frivolous courses. They have repudiated the heroes and traditions of the past by judging them by today’s standards rather than in the context of their times. Fraternities are being unfairly maligned, and men are being demonized by sexual assault investigations. And university administrations have been too meek in addressing protesters whose messages have seemed to fly in the face of free speech.)

http://www.gopusa.com/student-loan-lunacy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College students whose majors don’t turn out as they envision will be able to walk away from their loan debt simply by claiming their schools bamboozled them, as allowed under a new rule. Proposed by the Department of Education, published in June in the Federal Register and scheduled for approval on Nov. 1, the rule will allow students to “discharge” their federal student loan obligation if they can show — and rather broadly — that they were hoodwinked by a university’s “misrepresentation.” This easy out would leave taxpayers and colleges on the hook for between $2 billion and $43 billion over the next 10 years, according to a federal estimate. And what could be easier than for the lame-duck administration, in its 11th-hour regulatory push, to ship off this sour tart and simply walk away? For starters, the rule is entirely unnecessary. An existing provision allows students to sue for loan forgiveness in cases of intentional fraud or in other violations of law. What’s proposed is preposterously unspecific, leaving schools with little recourse. It’s akin to allowing mortgage holders to dump their loans because they picked the wrong neighborhood in which to reside. In the end, this latest get-out-of-debt free nonsense helps no one. It simply abrogates personal responsibility. And unfortunately for young people sucked into these liberal escapades, life is not so forgiving.)
