— Donald Trump paid $750 in US income taxes in 2016, 2017: NY Times – AP (DIERSEN: I worked for IRS for almost 9 years and I worked for GAO on audits of IRS for 3 years. Tax evasion is illegal. Tax avoidance is legal. What did you do to avoid paying higher federal taxes? Instead of renting, I bought the following and deducted mortgage interest and real estate taxes: a) a new town home in University Park in 1972, b) a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in downtown Chicago in 1974, and c) a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976. My wife and I bought a home in Wheaton in 1978 and we had one built in Wheaton in 1984. Instead of spending my time and money on other things, I paid for and deducted tuition, fees, and books a) to earn a job-related MBA from Loyola on 1976, b) to pass the job-related CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, c) to earn a job-related master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, d) to pass the job-related Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt in 1981, and e) to earn a job-related master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT in 1997.)

Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)
https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/las-vegas/nevada-legislator-uses-horses-to-get-out-his-message-in-las-vegas-2131003/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nevada Assemblyman Edgar Flores canvassed in his east Las Vegas neighborhood on Saturday. Flores, who is running for re-election in Assembly District 28, kicked off a campaign literature drop Saturday morning with many supporters on horseback. The event, which included distribution of literature for his campaign and for the Biden-Harris campaign, was designed to promote the vote within Latino community, Flores noted in an email to the Review-Journal on Friday.)

NATIONAL LAW REVIEW
— Achieving Diversity and Inclusion within the Securities and Financial Management Industry and its Legal Partners (DIERSEN: Meeting Affirmative Action, Diversity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets is a “zero sum game.” For every employee who is hired or promoted who is Democrat, minority, female, or younger, an employee who is Republican, White, male, or older is not hired or promoted. All my coworkers who IRS and GAO promoted over me were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger.)
https://www.natlawreview.com/article/achieving-diversity-and-inclusion-within-securities-and-financial-management
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Accountability and measurement are necessary to achieve results. Marcham encouraged us to avoid barriers that we often throw up, and not to see diversity and inclusion results as a “zero sum game.” Instead tangible D&I results are a chance to grow both inclusively and financially – the well-known win‑win. Lewis wryly observed the financial services industry measures everything so there is no excuse not to measure our results on D&I.)

BUSINESS LEDGER
— Best Places to work in Illinois (DIERSEN: One would expect that employers that give lots of preference to their employees who are members of certain groups would be ranked higher by their employees who are members of those groups. Because the federal government gives preference to its employees who are Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or non-veteran, one would expect that those employees would rank the federal government very highly.)

But since the 1960s, admitting more minorities and admitting more females have always been top priorities for the aforesaid universities.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s current Republican leadership — Chairman Tim Schneider, National Committeeman Richard Porter and National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte — came to Ives’ defense in a joint statement that contended “identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading.” Ives weighed in on Twitter, saying: “Of course Pat Brady endorsed Sean Casten. Amoral, ruling class political hacks stick together.” “Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers,” the statement said. . .Schneider, who is now coming to Ives’ defense, was Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman and denounced the 2018 ad. He said it did not reflect the Illinois Republican Party, called it a “cowardly attempt to stoke political division” and asked her to apologize and remove it. She did neither. State Republicans who are running a “races to watch” online program to help raise funds for a variety of contenders did not include Ives. State GOP officials said she declined to participate in the fundraising effort, but they support her candidacy.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— MADIGAN’s CRUSADE – SHIA KAPOS
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Democratic Party is on a crusade to grab as many seats as possible in the November election, which is just 56 days away — or less, if you’re voting by mail. Democratic and Republican sources say Dems could flip at least six House seats and, depending how much money House Speaker Michael Madigan throws at races, even more. There are a few reasons for a possible sweep. First, President Donald Trump is expected to hinder Republicans in suburban strongholds. Trump could lose by 10 to 15 points in some suburbs, which means Republicans in those districts would have to outperform the top of the ticket by that much — and that’s not likely without a lot of cash. The Illinois Republican Party doesn’t have the financial resources to compete with Democrats, who have amassed $3.7 million, according to the State Board of Elections website. That compares to Republicans who have close to $1.1 million in the bank. And Madigan, the Dems’ chief fundraiser, has an additional $14.8 million that he can spend on candidates — more than five times what Minority Leader Jim Durkin has. Democrats already have a majority in the House, holding 74 seats to the Republicans’ 44. So why push for more? With his position as House speaker coming up for a vote in January, Madigan officially needs 60 votes to be re-elected to the position, and it would be a show of force if he could get at least 70 votes. So it’s no wonder he’s making every effort to push Democrats over the line in November. Flipping more than six seats would be a reminder to Democrats that he’s critical to their party’s success. Republicans say Illinois voters dislike Madigan and it will show in the polls. “When voters are concerned about ethics and fiscal issues, we benefit,” said Jayme Odom, executive director of the House Republican Organization. “There’s no amount of money that can cover up the problems that the Democrats have with Mike Madigan in charge.” Mary Morrissey, executive director of the Illinois Democratic Party counters: “When Illinois Republicans refer to corruption, we assume they’re talking about their president and his daily affront to Americans, our constitution and the integrity of our democracy. When they mention the economy, we assume Illinois Republicans mean the growing economy Donald Trump inherited and tore apart with his disastrous response to the coronavirus pandemic.” The six Illinois House seats expected to flip: Allen Skillicorn. . .Morrison. . .Wehrli. . .Mazzochi. . .Stephens. . .Grant. . .Democrats also think they can defeat Republican Reps. John Cabello, Steve Reick, Norine Hammond, and Dan Ugaste, though GOP insiders expect the races to hinge on whether their GOP-leaning districts back Trump this time around. And Republicans hope to flip the 116th District: Republican David Friess, an attorney, vs. the recently appointed Dem Rep. Nathan Reitz; 111th District: Republican Amy Elik vs. Democratic Rep. Monica Bristow (Republicans lost by 356 votes to Bristow two years ago); and the 112th District that has Republican Lisa Ciampoli challenging Democratic Rep. Katie Stuart.)

DESERET NEWS
— Understanding ‘pink slime journalism’ and what it reveals about conservatives and liberals Websites featuring local news could be efforts to sway elections, media analysts say. But one publisher says he’s filling a void left by the closure of community newspapers – Jennifer Graham (DIERSEN: www.gopusaillinois.com does not masquerade.)
https://www.deseret.com/indepth/2020/9/7/21409053/understanding-pink-slime-journalism-and-what-it-reveals-about-conservatives-and-liberals
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Six in 10 Americans who are Republican, or lean that way, believe that news organizations make mistakes to deliberately mislead people, according to a new report from Pew Research Center. The number is even higher among supporters of President Donald Trump, who repeatedly berates the mainstream news media for dispensing what he calls “fake news.” That could make conservatives the group most susceptible to an emerging phenomenon that has been dubbed “pink-slime journalism,” websites that masquerade as local news, but may exist to promote a partisan agenda and gather data on users, according to an investigation by the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University. The term “pink-slime journalism,” believed to have been coined in 2012 by journalist Ryan Smith, suggests something more sinister than “yellow journalism,” which describes news coverage that is overly sensational or tawdry and which dates to the 19th century. Pink-slime journalism, however, is thoroughly modern, enabled by computer-generated articles and accounts compiled by people who may not live in the United States.)

AMERICAN FOREIGN SERVICE ASSOCIATION
— Why “27 Years and Out” Should Be Retired – TED CRAIG (DIERSEN: The Democrats who run the federal government use Affirmative Action, Diversity, Inclusion, reorganizations, budget cuts, up-or-out, subjectivity in job assignments, subjectivity in performance appraisal, etc. to get rid of its employees who are Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they have not promoted to GS-13 (currently $101,176) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $119,559) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $140,634) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $170,800) by age 40. Extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
http://www.afsa.org/why-27-years-and-out-should-be-retired
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This September I will retire from the U.S. Foreign Service. Not for lack of energy and commitment, as I sit squarely in my mid-50s and am in good health. Nor for lack of capability, if my last employee evaluation report in a senior overseas leadership position is to be credited. And not for any constraints on my readiness to serve. Along with scores of other capable colleagues every year, I am moving on because of the Service’s long-standing requirement that we retire after 27 years unless selected to the Senior Foreign Service. It is the deal we signed up for, so those of us who don’t cross the threshold must accept the outcome. Whether this deal still makes sense for the Foreign Service is another question. The 27-year threshold is the relic of an age of one-career couples and unsuited to the professional constraints faced today by single parents, dual-career partners, or just about anyone with a substantial life challenge. It is draining away experienced and skilled officers at a time of unprecedented challenge to our interests and ideals overseas, and it may play a role in limiting diversity in our senior ranks. The 27-year “Time in Service” (TIS) limit in the Foreign Service mirrors the U.S. military, where officers have that number of years to make flag rank—the one-star ranks of brigadier general for the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps, and rear admiral for the Navy—or face mandatory retirement. And some of the justifications for the system are similar for both the military and the diplomatic corps. First, the limitation ensures “pass-through” in the ranks, opening opportunities for the next generation of officers to move through the system as longer-serving officers are retired. Like most bureaucracies, we have a pyramid-shaped organization at the State Department. We need more mid-level diplomats than we do ambassadors and deputy assistant secretaries. There is not room for everyone to be selected for the Senior Foreign Service, and using upward progression as an incentive for superior performance is beneficial. A second argument for the TIS limit, unspoken in polite company, is that it rids the system of underperforming bureaucratic deadwood. This argument is less convincing. Like the military, the Foreign Service uses up-or-out all along the way, thinning the ranks at each step in promotion; anyone making our Service’s most senior “pre-flag” rank (FS-1, the protocol equivalent of a colonel) has been pushed forward by at least three promotion boards and should be a strong officer. While we still occasionally see underperformers marking time at the FS-1 rank, the reality is that most of those pushed out of the Service are still capable of strong contributions and valuable mentoring. Many will have been recommended for elevation to the Senior Foreign Service by the annual selection panels, falling short because of limited allotted slots for new senior officers.)
