— Illinois’ students need fair school funding – Allison Jack, River Forest  (DIERSEN: Jack would be one of those who would hint/imply/argue/shout that Crete-Monee School District 201-U was filthy rich when I attended Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966 and that is why I got into the upper 20% of my class, why I got an ACT score of 24, and why UIC accepted me in 1966.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Munger vows to ‘help people in need’ in new job – Michael Sneed  (DIERSEN: Have you ever been “in need?” I have not. Because of that, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being someone who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and as being someone who has always been privileged.  If that were true, I never would have taken the bad dead end jobs that I did doing yard work, delivering newspapers, washing dishes, cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assemble line, working as a security guard, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, collecting delinquent taxes, and auditing federal agencies.)

DAILY HERALD
— EDITORIAL: Don’t keep secrets  The already embattled DuPage County Election Commission didn’t help itself by waiting more than a month to announce that longtime Executive Director Robert Saar effectively retired in mid-December, although his last day isn’t really until March 14. Saar has the right to his accumulated time off, but why keep his departure secret for so long?
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170204/discuss/170209512/
— EDITORIAL: Congressman speaking up  Despite the risks he took criticizing President Trump’s immigration ban, U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren didn’t go far enough for several dozen people who showed up at his Campton Hills office this week. A spokesman said the 14th District congressman will host a town-hall meeting and promised appointments to all who showed. That’s decent service.

The federal government never charged me with that because I always carried out all the AA, Diversity, and Inclusion orders that I was given.  I can provide many examples in which I was ordered to give preference to my subordinates because they were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran, and that I carried out those orders.)

SPARTANBURG HERALD JOURNAL
— Loose talk of being ‘un-American’  A pause in immigration from seven Muslim-majorities countries isn’t a violation of our nation’s creed. – RICH LOWRY  (DIERSEN: If there had been as many illegal and legal immigrants in America during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s as there are today, in all likelihood, they would have gotten the jobs that I did doing yard work, delivering newspapers, washing dishes, cleaning golf shoes, chipping slag, pumping gasoline, delivering mail, working on an automobile assemble line, working as a security guard, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, collecting delinquent taxes, and auditing federal agencies.)
http://www.goupstate.com/opinion/20170203/lowry-loose-talk-of-being-un-american
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Levels of immigration spiked in the 1880s, dropped in the 1890s, and reached new highs before World War I. They declined precipitously during the war and bounced back afterward. Then the 1924 immigration law brought a new phase of lower immigration that didn’t end until the late 1960s. In 1965, fewer than 300,000 immigrants were admitted to the United States. We have been at elevated levels for decades since then and now admit about 1 million a year. The proportion of the foreign-born population is set to hit a record in 2025.)

http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/02/tunnels-of-oppression-expose-privileged-students-to-dehumanization.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Several schools are hosting “Tunnels of Oppression,” where students experience simulated acts of racism, misogyny, and more so that they can “recognize their own privilege.”  Lee University’s Residential Life and Housing and Student Leadership Council will be hosting its fourth annual iteration of the event on Friday, during which participants will go on an interactive tour that exposes them to a different type of oppression in each room, including “racial, sexual, mental, and societal oppression.” Other schools host their own versions of the Tunnel, as well, though the exact nature of the exercise varies. Below is a video from the 2010 Tunnel of Oppression at Southern Illinois University in which students are subjected to verbal abuse by university employees.)

— How About “America First” for College Admissions? – Cliff Kincaid  (DIERSEN: UIC admitted me in 1966 when I was 17, NIU in 1969 when 20, Loyola on 1972 when I was 23, DePaul in 1976 when I was 27, and IIT in 1992 when I was 43, but because of my demographics, I doubt that they would admit if was 17, 20, 23, 27, or 43 today.)
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=20246
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a recent article, “Surge in foreign students may be crowding Americans out of elite colleges,” The Washington Post stumbled on the truth about one of the factors affecting the rising cost of college for American students. The percentage of foreign students enrolling in both public and private colleges and universities has skyrocketed. Their sponsors, Middle East governments and regimes like China, buy their way into American colleges and universities for their own students, forcing up costs for the dwindling number of Americans fortunate enough to gain admission. It is estimated that over one million international students are enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities. That figure has doubled in 15 years. The growing international enrollment is crowding out qualified U.S. students.)

Ask them why I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years in high school 1964-1966, why I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966, why I delivered mail 1966-1969, and why I worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

— Chicago’s Top Cop To Trump: Fight Violence By Fighting Poverty – Chip Mitchell  (DIERSEN: What would your superiors say that they did to fight poverty?  My Democrat GAO superiors would stress that they forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors would stress that they did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims.  My Democrat Post Office superiors would stress that they forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests.  My aforesaid Democrat superiors would stress that the aforesaid adverse actions that they took against me directly benefited their employees who were poor, and especially their poor employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.)

— Can Chicago’s Poorest ‘Pull Themselves Up By Their Bootstraps’? – Kelly Bauer (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always a) painted my parents as being filthy rich and b) painted me as being born with a silver spoon in my mouth and as having always been privileged. Ask them why I washed dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights during my junior and senior years in high school 1964-1966, why I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966, why I delivered mail 1966-1969, and why I worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970.)

— Trump to issue Magna Carta of religious liberty – Bryan Fischer
https://www.onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2017/02/03/trump-to-issue-magna-carta-of-religious-liberty
(FROM THE ARTICLE: We read every day of Christians who have been fired from government positions because of things they did or said outside the workplace on Facebook, or, for example, as part-time pastors. Under Trump, that comes to a dead stop at the federal level. No agency will be allowed to punish a federal employee for advocating for their values “while outside the scope of their employment.” What a Christian does and says on his own time will henceforth be none of the government’s business. And Christians won’t be gagged even at work, say, during breaks, in the cafeteria, and on site before or after work. Agencies will be directed to “reasonably accommodate” religious speech and action even “within the course of their employment.” No one will be prohibited from “receiving government grants or contracts” because their business is guided by Christian principles. Federal agencies “will accommodate the religion of federal employees” and will not “substantially burden … (their) religious exercise.” Christian employees of federal agencies will no longer need to fear harassment and punishment for bringing their faith to work with them.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— WHEATON MIDDLE SCHOOL STAFF MEET STUDENTS WITH PRO-REFUGEE SIGNS  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps hint/imply/argue/shout that Trump and Trump’s supporters are racists, sexist, bigots, and even worse things.  What percent of those involved in education anti-Trump?)
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2017/02/wheaton-middle-school-staff-meet-students-with-pro-refugee-signs.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton Illinois’ James Howard Monroe Middle School says it is “inspiring in everyone a passion to excel,” but parents were stunned to learn this morning that staff members met students with signs inspiring passions to react against the Trump Administration’s effort to protect American citizens. “We are not afraid,” signs held by staff members at the school’s entrance said Wednesday morning, and publicized the website, “WeWelcomerefugees.com,”  while others said “You all are welcome here.” “Your voice is direly needed in this defining, historic moment, to be part of a coalition of the faith community who are compelled to be the voice of Christ, and show support for refugees, immigrants and minorities who now fear how potential political changes may significantly, and detrimentally, upend their whole world,” the site the signs referenced says. The comments on the signs are similar to those that rose up over the weekend in protest of the Trump Administration, which placed a temporary travel ban on certain immigrants and refugees hoping to find solace in America. The Trump Administration clamped down on travelers from seven countries where terrorists are reportedly being cultivated and trained for destruction to Western Civilization. Bryan Buck, the school’s principal, emailed parents Wednesday morning that having taxpayer-funded school staff meeting 6th, 7th and 8th grade students with those signs “could be perceived as political activity.” No apology was issued, only explanation and defense for the staff members: “Monroe Parents, This morning as students were entering the building, there were several school staff members holding signage reading, “We are not afraid, wewelcomerefugees.com” and “You are all welcome here.” The intent behind this demonstration was to make sure that all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion or language, are welcome at our schools. I understand that this situation could be perceived as political activity. Please know that the true the intent was to show openness and support for all our students. Our school district and community represent an amazing cross-section of the world, and we strive to ensure that each student is included and has a place to learn, develop and succeed in our schools. Thank you again for your continued commitment and support of one another and our school. Bryan Buck, Principal  The website the signs promoted is sponsored by the following organizations:)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would argue that for almost 3 years 1966-1969 while I worked for the Park Forest Post Office, I earned full-time credit toward a Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension even though I only worked part-time. One of my Democrat GAO superiors bragged that when he found out about that in 1980, I successfully got Congress to eliminate that, so that now such CSRS credit is prorated.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would also argue that I benefited from taking an early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.  But so far, my taking that offer has cost me in today’s dollars $1,400,563 in lost income ($10,249/mo. salary X 233 months minus $4,238 pension X 233 months).

— Mayor Emanuel opens his home to ‘Dreamers’ – Lisa Chavarria  (DIERSEN: This encourages people to come to America illegally, to stay in America illegally, and to bring others to America illegally.  From what I see, those who promote Dreamers are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/232926615-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel opened his home to “Dreamers” on Tuesday night. The six young people who joined the Emanuel family for dinner all attend Chicago public high schools. They are all undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children. The “DREAM” Act would have given them a path to citizenship, but it’s not clear that path will remain clear with Donald Trump in the White House. Emanuel, who has vehemently protected Chicago’s status as a sanctuary city, says Trump’s anti-immigration efforts are contrary to American values. “The power of the United States is that people from all walks of life, every part of the world, can come to Chicago, the most American of American cities,” Emanuel said. “And they can give their children a chance at a better life.” Archbishop Blase Cupich, who is an outspoken supporter of immigration, also attended the dinner.)

In 1971, to settle an EEOC complaint, Oldsmobile stopped hiring Whites.  Because of that, Oldsmobile withdrew a job offer that I had accepted.  That directly resulted in my accepting a job offer from IRS.)

CNN
— Budweiser is accidentally political in Super Bowl ad – Alexandra Larkin  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, if you are a Republican, the longer that your ancestors have been in America, the more that Democrats and RINOs a) blame you and your ancestors for all the problems that minorities and women have had, are having, and will have and b) demonize you, denigrate you, and condemn you as being a racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things.)
http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/31/us/budweiser-immigration-commercial-trnd/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This year, Budweiser’s sneak peek of its commercial departs from their normal content and instead tells the story of company co-founder, Adolphus Busch, as he emigrates from Germany to the United States. The commercial, titled “Born the Hard Way,” and set in the 1800s, follows Busch as he sails through storms to reach the United States, faces discrimination because of his German heritage (Americans he meets tell him “go back home” and “you’re not wanted here”). Eventually, he arrives in St. Louis, Missouri, where he would meet Eberhard Anheuser and go on to create the brewing giant. The advertisement comes as the nation witnesses widespread protests over President Donald Trump’s controversial immigration ban, but Budweiser insists that the coincidental timing is just that — a coincidence. Ricardo Marques, vice president of marketing at Budweiser, has said in a statement that the commercial is “a story we believe will resonate with today’s entrepreneurial generation — those who will continue to strive for their dreams.” Budweiser stressed that the commercial focuses on the universal story of the immigrant. Mike Bryne, the chief creative officer of the advertisement agency that helped create the commercial, Anomaly, said in a statement, “When Budweiser told us that they wanted to celebrate those who embody the American spirit, we realized the ultimate story lived within their own brand history. Adolphus Busch is the hero of the Anheuser-Busch American dream.”)

They 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://www.federaltimes.com/articles/connolly-calls-for-32-percent-raise-for-federal-employees
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But the Virginia congressman — whose constituency consists of many federal workers — said the group has been wrongly maligned by the administration and the House, following the reinstitution of the Holman Rule, which allows it to make program or employee cuts in its appropriation bills. “For too long Republicans have bullied our federal workforce, falsely painting the civil servant as the scapegoat for all our country’s problems,” Connolly said in a statement. “They’ve endured shutdowns and furloughs, attacks on pay and benefits, and an across-the-board hiring freeze. Their hard work was questioned. Now, thanks to the Armageddon Rule, even individual positions could be on the congressional chopping block.” The measure won support from the National Treasury Employees Union and its president, Tony Reardon, who decried the disparity in pay increases federal employees face compared to the private sector. “Federal employees are dedicated public servants. They are highly trained and educated and work hard every day to help all Americans,” Reardon said in a statement. “They should not have to accept substandard pay raises and face continual attacks on their rights and benefits.”)

INCOME INVESTORS
— 3 Things the Media Won’t Tell You About Wealth Inequality – Robert Baillieul  (DIERSEN: If you are not poor, what do your critics/opponents attribute that to?  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout I am not poor a) because I was born a White male, b) because I have been blessed with good health (aside from poor eyesight and partial red-green color blindness), c) because I avoided the draft, d) because I got married, e) because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents, f) because the federal government overpaid me, and g) because my federal pension and health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy is too generous.)
https://www.incomeinvestors.com/3-things-media-wont-tell-wealth-inequality/13662/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First, take the idea getting rich requires wealthy parents. Today, 9.6 million households in America have more than $1.0 million in assets. Of this total, 86% of them are first-generation rich; in other words, they earned their money. (Source: “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Millionaires,” CNN Money, July 31, 2014.) Most millionaires are working, and not sitting on a beach drinking cocktails. In terms of jobs, you’ll find them employed as managers (17%), educators (12%), executives (7%), business owners (6%), and professionals. (Source: “29 Valuable Facts about Millionaires,” FactRetriever.com, December 27, 2016.) Education is a key theme. Most millionaires have a college degree. Many hold advanced certifications, including a Master’s degree (18%), law degrees (eight percent), medical degrees (six percent), and PhDs (six percent). (Source: “$1 Million Isn’t Worth What It Used To Be,” Visual Capitalist, November 22, 2016.) They’re experienced, too. The average millionaire takes 32 years to hit the seven-figure mark. While the media focuses on startup founders, real wealth building is a slow process. (Source: “It takes the typical self-made millionaire at least 32 years to get rich,” Business Insider, March 5, 2015.) Skills attained. Customers served. Ladders climbed. Not a trust fund in sight. Second, we often hear the rich need to pay their “fair share.” The idea gained steam after Warren Buffett wrote his famous wealth inequality op-ed. In 2011, the billionaire investor pointed out he paid a lower tax rate than his secretary. Capital gain taxes, he argued, were unfairly low compared to levies placed on earned income. (Source: “Stop Coddling the Super-Rich,” The New York Times, August 14, 2011.) Fact is, the rich are paying a bigger load than ever. In 1950, 89% of Americans paid income taxes. Today, only 47% do so. (Source: “T15-0138 – Tax Units with Zero or Negative Income Tax,” Tax Policy Center, October 2, 2015.) On average, the top 20% pay $50,176 in income taxes. In total, this group pays 87% of all income taxes collected. By comparison, four in 10 people at the bottom end of the income spectrum end up collecting money from the government. (Source: Ibid.) Buffett’s affairs are not typical, either. Only about a quarter of those making more than $1.0 million per year pay a lower tax rate than middle-class taxpayers, according to a 2012 study by the Congressional Research Service. Never mind that these studies often skip the corporate taxes owners pay as well. (Source: “An Analysis of the “Buffett Rule,”” Congressional Research Service, March 28,2012.) And finally, the idea that America’s wealthy class is some sort of gilded elite. Once again, the numbers don’t bear that out. Nearly 70% of millionaire families lose their wealth by the second generation. Over 90% are out of the country clubs by the third. (Source: Visual Capitalist, November 22, 2016, op cit.))

CBS2
— Illinois Policy Institute Pitches State Budget Plan With No Tax Hike – Craig Dellimore
http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/01/31/conservative-policy-group-pitches-state-budget-plan-with-no-tax-hike/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A conservative lobbying group has outlined a plan for ending the state’s budget standoff without a major income tax increase. The Illinois Policy Institute’s budget plan would move all new employees and as many current workers as it can persuade into a 401(k)-style retirement plan, instead of defined pensions. The proposal also would make most able-bodied people without children ineligible for Medicaid, impose the state’s most recent contract offer to unionized state workers, reduce state payroll by 10 percent, and freeze property taxes for five years. Illinois Policy Institute CEO John Tillman said it also would end state revenue sharing with larger local governments, which he claimed spend more money than they should. “We want to end that charade. We want to create local accountability. If a local school district wants to engage in pension spiking at the end of a teacher’s career, they can do that. If they want to give administrators excessive compensation packages, they can do that. But they won’t be able to send the bill to other taxpayers anymore,” he said. Tillman said state mandates on local government would be reduced, but he acknowledged there would be skepticism and resistance to much of the IPI budget plan. “Every single political actor at the local level will want to hold on to every penny they can, and it won’t be until the public demands these reforms that we really see the political will,” he said. State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) said she thinks the public will press for approval of the IPI budget plan. “That four-person family where the dad’s working his tail off, and maybe has a second job, and they know that they’re funding the Medicare for an able-bodied single adult who doesn’t want to get a job; I’ll tell you what, they’re all in on this plan, sir. All in,” she said.)

— Constituents crowd Hultgren office to discuss president – James Fuller  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps are nasty.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170131/news/170139747/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “People are very concerned about President Trump,” Scown told a nodding Goncher. “He has no understanding of his limited powers under the Constitution. He shows no discipline. We feel it’s our Congress’ duty to address an out of control president. We want to know that Mr. Hultgren will protect the Constitution and protect our rights.” Specifically, Scown pointed Trump’s recent ban on immigration from seven Muslim-majority nations as unconstitutional. Miller, an armed services veteran, said preventing Muslims who are non-U.S. citizens who helped U.S. military efforts in the Middle East is “a disgrace.” Hultgren released a statement Monday calling the ban “overly broad” with an “inconsistent and confused” interpretation. Hultgren said he supports efforts to review immigration screening processes to strengthen them. However, he said the process to vet refugees is “already extensive and thorough.” Miller said Hultgren’s statement was “weak” and didn’t go far enough. “He didn’t stand up and say it’s immoral, illegal, and we should ban it,” Miller said. The constituents also called on Hultgren to make his position known on various presidential cabinet appointments, especially those involving the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the education department. “Will the congressman stand up and protect the environment?” Miller asked. “Will he stand up for public schools?” Goncher said Hultgren does plan on hosting a town hall shortly. The staff has not set the time and place for such a public meeting, she said. Goncher pledged to call every one of the constituents who came to the office Tuesday and make separate appointments to listen to their concerns if need be. “We will always be available,” she said. “What we’re asking if that they make an appointment. If they give us a heads up on the topic, we can have a little bit more information to share with them.”)

REPUBLICAN NEWS WATCH
— President Trump v. Useful Idiots, et al. – DOUG IBENDAHL
http://republicannewswatch.com/wp/?p=14253
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The protests against our new Commander-in-Chief aren’t going to stop. In fact, expect the hate and anger to get hotter, and the size of the protests to get larger, as President Trump keeps winning for America. And the winning has only begun. So don’t let the protests dampen your post-election joy. Just sit back and savor the spectacle. The Extreme Left – which is the only wing left in the Democratic Party — is nothing if not entertaining. The Democrats have proven they don’t care an iota about expanding economic opportunity for the millions abandoned by their failed ideology and political idols. And they have also made it painfully obvious that keeping Americans safe is the least of their concerns. I seriously question whether there’s a single protester out there who truly believes Trump will harm the interests of women, the LGBT community, African-Americans, Hispanics, or anyone else. It’s actually quite the opposite. What’s keeping the Democrats up at night is a recurring nightmare in which Donald Trump continues to make good on his promises to lift-up all and unite the country. The typical Trump hater out there marching and/or inciting violence isn’t concerned about others. It’s purely a selfish concern centered on their fear of becoming even more irrelevant – if that’s even possible. Donald Trump and his supporters can take heart in the fact that another great President faced similar opposition from a hysterical Left, and it only made him stronger.)

Those who hate government employees and government retirees just love that.  Overwhelmingly, those who hate government employees and government retirees 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.)

— Older workers feel on track for retirement. Are they? – Paul Davidson
http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2017/01/31/older-workers-feel-track-retirement-they/97162652/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: All of that has taken a toll. Twenty-seven percent of the 45- to 65-year-olds surveyed have no retirement savings or investments and another 22% have less than $100,000. About 14% have at least $500,000 and 5% have $1 million or more. By contrast, nearly 50% believe they’ll need at least $500,000 to be comfortable and about a quarter say they’ll need at least $1 million. Rheaume says there’s no one-size-fits-all benchmark for a retirement fund — despite the oft-cited $1 million standard — adding it depends on the retiree’s lifestyle and spending patterns. Still, he says, the number of aging Americans with less than $100,000 “is very concerning.” Not surprisingly, there’s a stark contrast between lower- and higher-income workers.

— Don’t Blame Ivanka and Jared, They Were Observing Shabbat – Margaret Hartmann  (DIERSEN: What do you say to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who demonize me, who denigrate me, and who condemn me for putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out on weekends?)
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/01/ivanka-and-jared-dont-blame-us-we-were-observing-shabbat.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But now sources close to the First Couple, Jr. are claiming that they had nothing to do with the discriminatory travel ban or its chaotic rollout – and they even have an alibi. President Trump announced his executive order minutes before the sun set on Friday night, and Vanity Fair reports that Ivanka and Jared were initially unaware of the uproar because they were observing Shabbat. The couple, who are both orthodox Jews, do not use technology or do work from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday. Kushner is often portrayed as a moderating force, both on his father-in-law and between the different factions in his orbit. One source suggested that’s why both Saturdays of the Trump administration were especially tumultuous. “He wasn’t rolling calls on Saturday when this happened,” a source said of the day after the inauguration. “To me, that’s not a coincidence.”  Sources tell Vanity Fair that Kushner can’t really be blamed for the other six days of the week either, because his influence over his father-in-law is already waning.)

FEDERAL TIMES
— Forget the hiring freeze, OMB plan could alter the workforce – Carten Cordell (DIERSEN: Republicans downsized GAO during all the almost 18 years that I worked for the agency 1980-1997. Because of that, the Democrats who ran the agency focused on wasting the careers of and getting rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.federaltimes.com/articles/forget-the-hiring-freeze-omb-plan-could-alter-the-workforce
(FROM THE ARTCLE: The more important thing is the Phase 2, which is the creation of the downsizing plan,” said Don Kettl, a professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. “What kind of plan will it be in trying to reduce the size of the federal government through attrition? That really raises two questions: First, does the size of the federal workforce need to be reduced. And the second is, if you are going to reduce it, does it make sense to do it through attrition?” By using attrition as a tool to whittle down the workforce, the Trump administration would be trying to leverage the increasing number of federal employees eligible for retirement to achieve its goals. Some estimates have pegged the eligible number of retirees at 40 percent of the total workforce by 2020, which would accomplish the Trump administration’s goal, but runs the risk leaving a very large skills gap. “The one thing we know about doing it through attrition is that you are never going to end up with the kind of workforce that you need because the people that are leaving aren’t necessarily the jobs you need to replace,” Kettl said. “And the jobs you need to replace aren’t necessarily matched by the people who are leaving.”)

Bruce Rauner Attends Koch Brothers Donor Summit in California – Mary Ann Ahern  (DIERSEN: Rauner should say NO to potential donors who want him to promote mass/illegal immigration, LGBTQ activity, abortion, booze, pot, gambling, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, race based preference giving, gender based preference giving, age discrimination, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, and even worse things.)
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/illinois-governor-bruce-rauner-trump-executive-order-412090203.html
(FROM THE THE ARTICLE: However, the seminar is also considered a chance for 2018 Republican candidates to meet potential donors. Led by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, the Koch network plans to spend up to $400 million on policy and political campaigns during the midterm cycle, according to several reports including from the Washington Post. This weekend marks the largest gathering of potential donors for Koch Industries, with more than 500 people in attendance. Only three governors joined the Palm Springs summit: Rauner, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker and Arizona’s Doug Ducey, along with five Republican U.S. senators.)

— Why American Jews Are Overwhelmingly Liberal – Steve Feinstein  (DIERSEN: Democrats are nasty.  While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Jewish.  My Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates stressed to them a) that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, b) that I was conservative, c) that I was Republican, and d) that I was 100% German national origin.  In my defense, I stressed a) that all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois during the 1840s and 1850s, b) my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans in WWI, c) that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans in WWII, and d) that my father would have fought the Germans in WWII if he had not been 4-F.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— An idea for $60 billion per year in federal savings – Bob Fitzhenry  (DIERSEN: Does Fitzhenry approve or disapprove of the federal government’s wasting my career and forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old?  Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH the federal government’s wasting my career and forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/01/an_idea_60_billion_per_year_in_federal_savings.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I dusted off an old idea of mine because of President Trump’s freeze on federal hiring, his tasking to create an attrition plan, and a statistic I read yesterday in a Washington Post article by Juliet Eilperin.  Eilperin reported that in the federal workforce, “there are nearly three times as many employees over age 60 as under age 30.”  Yikes.  That’s no way to run a railroad. The idea I’d roughed out gave a way to cut back the federal workforce by tempting people to retire or move on earlier than they would otherwise.  Depending on whom I’d run the idea past, I’d hear that it’s fantasy, fantastic, or the best sense of fantastical. The cliché to address what I’d like to see happen is, “You’ve got to spend money to make money.”  What if we spent a bunch of money offering departure incentives high enough to entice 750,000 feds to resign or retire?  Then, how about filling one third of the vacated positions with veterans, graduates, and the un- and underemployed?  We’d be spending billions to save billions more every year, and to get 250,000 people into careers they and the country need them to have.)
