POLITICO ILLINOIS
— LaHOOD’s NOD TO BIDEN. . .REP. DARIN LAHOOD says Joe Biden should be receiving security briefings, a sign he acknowledges the Democrat won the 2020 election. “It is appropriate from a national security perspective for Joe Biden to be afforded access to intelligence and security briefings,” the Republican congressman told Playbook through a spokesman. LaHood’s comment about Biden’s post-election position follows Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who took to Twitter on Nov. 7 to acknowledge Biden’s victory: “Congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Our nation deserves two competing parties who can work together when possible, and compete honorably when not.” Other Illinois Republican Party leaders, however, are keeping quiet about their opinions on the outcome of the presidential race. Illinois GOP Executive Director Derek Murphy and party Chairman Tim Schneider didn’t respond to requests for comment, and neither did GOP Reps. Mike Bost (12th), Rodney Davis (13th), or John Shimkus (15th). GOP Rep. Mike Bost tweeted Nov. 8 that he supports Trump’s “efforts to ensure all legal votes are counted… So while Joe Biden & supporters celebrate, our work continues.” Illinois House Minority Leader Jim Durkin and newly named state Senate Minority Leader Dan McConchie said they don’t comment on national security issues. Political strategist Collin Corbett says he’s not surprised some Illinois Republicans are keeping quiet. “Everyone knows Biden has won. It’s a matter of respect [for Trump]. They want to let the guy get through the process.” Corbett, who heads the “right of center” Cor Strategies, expects transfer of power will happen “and it will be peaceful. There’s no sense in angering him in the meantime.” – Shia Kapos

— How Covid-19 Will Change Aging and Retirement Among other things, expect more aging in place and a wave of innovation to help make that happen – Anne Tergesen
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-covid-19-will-change-aging-and-retirement-11605452401
(FROM THE ARTICLE: 7. We need to save more to retire While stocks for now continue to perform well, lower bond yields caused by the pandemic might make it harder to make ends meet on a fixed income. For years, retirees have relied on the so-called 4% rule, which says you can withdraw 4% from your savings in the first year of retirement, and then give yourself an annual raise to account for inflation, without running a big risk of running out of money. For someone with a $1 million portfolio, that formula produced an initial income of $40,000 and—assuming inflation of 2%—an increase to $40,800 in year two. But today’s low bond yields mean future returns are expected to be lower than in the past, says David Blanchett, head of retirement research at Morningstar Inc. Mr. Blanchett says his safe-spending recommendation is now between 3% and 3.5%. That means that someone who wants to safely withdraw $40,000 in the first year of retirement needs to save closer to $1.2 million than $1 million. . .9. We will work longer Since the 1990s, the percentage of people 55 and older in the labor force has risen steadily, to 40% in 2019 from 29% in 1993, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. With bond yields low, stock values high and Social Security in precarious shape, the trend will accelerate. “There’s so much uncertainty about the future…most people are going to continue to work as long as they can,” says Prof. Carstensen. With companies embracing remote work and flexible hours and the gig economy expanding, it’s easier for many older people to remain employed, says Jack Rowe, a professor of public health at Columbia University. Of course, not everyone has the ability to work into their 70s or beyond. Some are in poor health, have jobs they can no longer perform or are victims of age discrimination. “As a society, we will have to provide ways for people who cannot work to receive support, says Prof. Carstensen.”)

https://onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2020/11/13/eyeing-a-white-house-win-angry-left-vows-to-purge-nazis-in-name-of-unity
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Donald Trump insisted more than once the “Resistance” movement that attempted to stop his presidency was really attacking American voters who put him in the White House, and now the Kristallnacht-like Resistance has proven him right. Bolstered by Joe Biden’s expected win over Trump, the so-called Resistance movement of Democrats and “Never Trump” Republicans is blatantly calling for Trump supporters to be punished if they voted for him and put out a yard sign, cheered for him and defended his policies, or served in his administration. “Shunning, shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation,” Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Post columnist, suggested on MSNBC over the weekend, “that these people are not fit for polite society.” Rubin made those comments (see video below) after reminding the cable news network she had cheered when then-press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was run out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant. That incident dates back to 2018 and it appears Rubin, the Post’s supposedly conservative reporter, has no regrets about punishing political enemies two years later. “It’s not only that Trump has to lose,” she further stated, “but that all his enablers have to lose.” From ‘reconciliation’ to ‘accountability’ Even before Election Day, Berkeley economics professor Robert Reich raised eyebrows when he suggested via Twitter there should be a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” if Trump loses re-election. What would such a commission do? “It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness,” he wrote, “and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.” When fellow Twitter users pushed back on the suggestion, Reich, who served as labor secretary for Bill Clinton, scoffed at warnings his idea was “undemocratic.” Then came Election Day. Democrats not only celebrated a projected win for Joe Biden but predicted an angry, crying Donald Trump would be marched out of the White House and his Hitler-endorsing, white supremacist minions should be punished, too. But there needs to be a record, right? The history of despotic regimes has shown The Right Thinkers have to take names, and document wrongdoing, in order to punish The Wrong Thinkers. One self-described revolutionary who was thinking ahead was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist lawmaker. She asked via Twitter is anyone was “archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future.” Yes, infact, some people were doing just that. Just three days after Election Day, the Trump Accountability Project was born with the motto, “Remember what they did.” The group, founded by staffers associated with Pete Buttigieg, vowed to “not allow the following groups of people profit from their experience: Those who elected him. Those who staffed his government. Those who funded him.” CNN: No more ‘Kristallnacht’ Following on the heels of vows to punish Trump and his supporters, CNN reminded its viewers this week that Nov. 9 marked the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” in 1938. On that night, Nazi Party members torched Jewish homes and schools, vandalized synagogues, and arrested approximately 30,000 Jews and marched them off to concentration camps. Another 100 Jews were killed. The horrors or Kristallnacht, CNN’s anchor Christiane Amanpour opined, included an attack on “facts, knowledge, history and truth” when the Nazis tossed thousands of books into the fire. “After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump,” Amanpour summarized, “the Biden-Harris team pledges a return to normal.” For supporters of Donald Trump, who are not Nazis and don’t know one, the obvious question is: What in the world is going on? According to psychiatrist Dr. Karl Benzio, it boils down to emotions detached from reality, which Trump supporters have named Trump Derangement Syndrome for the bizarre, unhinged behavior of the Left. “The definition of psychosis is when somebody isn’t able differentiate reality from non-reality,” Dr. Benzio tells OneNewsNow. “The definition of delusion is a fixed, false belief.” A human being’s emotional volume is always competing with our rational volume, Dr. Benzio says, like when a rabid sports fan reacts angrily when their beloved team fails to reach the end zone or, worse, loses the game and the grief-stricken fan fails to cope with the loss. In the case of President Trump, he is the opposing team that “stole” the game from the home team — then dances in the end zone to rub it in. When the trolling, counter-punching commander in chief posts a sarcastic tweet, or drops a new nickname for a politician beloved by Democrats, Benzio says, it only makes his enemies angrier. And now those angry enemies, who likely won the game on Election Day, are plotting revenge.)

What percent of those in your precinct, municipal district, municipality, township, county district, county, and Illinois share the following: your race, gender, age group, education, professional certifications/licenses, occupation, sexual orientation, marital status, dependents/no dependents, health status, Trump supporter/hater, political affiliation, liberal/moderate/conservative, religion, national origin, income group, homeowner/renter, net worth group, years of residency in your municipal district and municipality, veteran status, length of time your ancestors have been in America, drinker/non-drinker, gambler/non-gambler, pot user/non-pot user, etc.?)

FORBES
— How Would A Biden Presidency Aid Your Retirement? – Taylor Tepper (DIERSEN: I have been a federal retiree for more than 23 years. Because federal retirees are overwhelmingly Democrats, it would be less likely that Biden would cut/eliminate a) Civil Service Retirement System pensions, b) COLAs, and/or c) the 72% health, dental, and vision insurance subsidies that federal retirees and their spouses get. I should write a book about those who are beyond furious that my wife and I get the aforesaid. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.)

— Retire to what? – Byron Moore (DIERSEN: In today’s dollars, since 1997, my income has been $77,604/year (59%) less. In today’s dollars, my GAO salary was $131,532/year, but my Civil Service Retirement System pension is only $54,168/year, or 59% less. My wife and I have responded to this by spending less.)
https://www.shreveporttimes.com/story/money/business/2020/11/14/retire-what/6257588002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You won’t know what kind of retirement lifestyle you can afford until you know what your retirement income will be. . .Will those accumulated assets last? Will you spend only the interest they earn, or will you dip into your principal? With interest rates historically low, will you invest those funds? If so, what if markets fluctuate (as they do about 100% of the time!). Could a prolonged economic downturn cause you to run out of money? Or will you get scared and simply reduce your lifestyle – no more vacations, no helping the kids, fewer trips to see the grandkids… We’re back to what are you planning to retire to? Is it the lifestyle you want…or the lifestyle you can afford?)

https://www.newsmatch.org/organizations/illinois-press-foundation-capitol-news-illinois
(FROM THE POSTING: Credible and Unbiased Coverage of Illinois State Government Causes: Community Advocacy, Education, Politics Capitol News Service was born out of discussions that began a few years ago among Illinois Press Foundation Board members about how to address the shrinking press corps at the Statehouse. With media companies closing their Statehouse bureaus and reallocating reporting resources, the number of journalists based in the Capitol has dwindled significantly. The Illinois Press Foundation has created Capitol News Illinois to provide media outlets with state government coverage that news consumers can trust. We believe having an engaged and informed public is essential to our state’s success. So, too, is having a government that’s held accountable by their constituents. Our goal is to increase news consumers’ awareness, interest and participation in state government; to grow the size of the Capitol News Illinois newsroom through additional donations and funding, and to encourage newspapers and media groups in Illinois to devote additional resources to reporting from the Statehouse.)

https://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2020/11/11/dupage-county-board-democrats-ride-blue-wave-in-election/a9q08ay/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We’ve got demographic shifts that are working in our favor,” said Greg Hose, a Democratic Downers Grove commissioner. . .“A lot of people voted Democratic at the top of the ticket, but they changed and came back to Republicans,” Krajewski said, referring to local candidates elsewhere on the ballot. Krajewski is projected to retain his seat on the County Board, according to unofficial results, but his opponent, Gail Cabala-Lowry, garnered about 48% of the vote. Krajewski said his campaign made it a priority to focus on local issues. He added it remains unclear what direction the DuPage County GOP will take in the future to alter messaging. “They may need to do a better job,” Krajewski said. “What we’re seeing – I’ve seen it constantly in my district – I’ve seen a lot of people move out of the state of Illinois.” James Zay, the head of the DuPage County GOP, did not return requests for comment.)

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— DuPage County Clerk Acknowledges Issues With Voting Machines, Commits to Remedial Measures to Ensure Voters Accurately Informed, Not Misled
https://illinois.gop/category/news/
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Following calls by voters and Republican Party officials, DuPage County Clerk Jean Kaczmarek is acknowledging an issue with DuPage County voting machines and has committed to several remedial measures requested by the ILGOP and others. Several voters reported that while reading the questions on the screen of the electronic voting machines at early voting locations in DuPage County, after 10 seconds, the machine would automatically highlight the candidate or question that occupied the first ballot position, which this year are the Democratic Party candidates. The technical issue is related to how the County’s voting machines comply with the ADA. “While all counties must adhere to ADA requirements while conducting their elections, we have not seen this occur in any other county in the State, where a candidate’s name would be automatically highlighted, as they were in DuPage,” said ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider. “We brought these issues to the Clerk and appreciate the Clerk’s office taking these issues seriously.” The DuPage County Clerk has committed to place signage at each Early Voting site, to provide a hand out to each voter, and to place explanatory signage on each electronic voting machine used in Early Voting in DuPage County. While a technological fix is unavailable during the Early Voting period, the Clerk has committed to investigate whether a technological fix may address the issue for Election Day voting. Said Schneider, “We appreciate the Clerk taking these remedial measures to help avoid any voter confusion on these machines. It is obviously of the utmost importance that all voters have the chance to make an informed choice at the polls.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: While we haven’t yet dragged ourselves out from under the 2020 election, a few Republicans are already eyeing 2022 to challenge Gov. J.B. Pritzker. Most political watchers are waiting to see what Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Cubs co-owner and Republican National Committee finance Chairman Todd Ricketts, and Chicago attorney and Illinois Republican committeeman Richard Porter will do. State Rep. Darren Bailey of Xenia (in Clay County), and state Sen. Paul Schimpf of Waterloo (near St. Louis), have talked to people about running. Bailey, who makes a living as a farmer, has made headlines for a lawsuit against Pritzker, claiming his civil rights have been violated by the governor’s stay-at-home orders. Bailey is the state rep who was kicked out of the spring legislative session for a day for not wearing a mask. He’s also a freshman Rep who’s running for state senator. Talk about ambition. Schimpf, who’s not seeking re-election this year, saw his plans for a federal judgeship derailed. So he’s looking for something new after next month’s election. The attorney and retired Marine Corps officer has been a familiar face on the campaign circuit for other Republican candidates. He also has been speaking out against the graduated income tax ballot measure, which is backed by Pritzker. Gary Rabine, owner of a Rabine Group, a paving and concrete company based in Schaumburg, has hosted Trump events around Illinois, allowing him to get his name out with top-tier Republican supporters. Rabine, who headlines a podcast called Ditch Digger CEO, also has the ear of Charlie Kirk of Turning Point. Kinzinger, meanwhile, may be looking for a new challenge after nearly 10 years in the House — 12 if he wins re-election next month. He’s one of the few Republicans in Congress who hasn’t been afraid to call out President Donald Trump when he thinks the president’s tweets go too far. GOP sources say Kinzinger’s campaign team would like to see him run for governor, but he so far isn’t indicating whether he’s ready to make the leap. Other wildcards are Ricketts, whose family is on the Forbes billionaire list and is seen as someone who could match Pritzker’s ability to self-fund, and Porter, who’s become a notable name in GOP circles. No one’s ready to talk yet about 2022. But that will change next month after the 2020 election winds down.)

MORNING CALL
— After coronavirus delay, Biden campaign launching in-person canvassing in Pennsylvania, other battleground states – AP (DIERSEN: I urge all Republican organizations in Illinois to ASAP provide Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains with updated voter guides to deliver to the Independent and Republican households in their precincts. That literature should include all the endorsements that Republican candidates have received.)
https://www.mcall.com/news/elections/mc-nws-pa-eletion-biden-canvassing-20201001-gqgr3mihkrfubas2chlecg4zz4-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ahead of the voter outreach expansion, Biden’s campaign has already opened 109 supply centers across 17 battleground states to help distribute campaign literature, lawn signs and other materials for the canvassers. Biden volunteers in Pennsylvania and Nevada began dropping campaign literature at voters’ homes just last weekend, although they were instructed to avoid any direct conversations. Those conversations will begin this weekend following a series of training sessions designed to ensure Biden’s team can engage with people at doorsteps as safely as possible. All volunteers involved will be provided personal protective equipment, including masks, and will have their temperatures checked. The campaign also plans to send batches of text messages telling voters to expect a knock at their door before volunteers enter a neighborhood. Biden’s team is particularly focused on ensuring his supporters have updated information about how and where to vote as early as possible. Literature used in Pennsylvania in recent days, for example, encourages people to make a specific plan to vote — either by mail, in person early voting or in person on Election Day.)
