SUBURBAN LIFE
— DuPage County Board Democrats ride blue wave in election – Megann Horstead (DIERSEN: As Democrats invade political jurisdictions, it is increasingly difficult for Republicans to win in those jurisdictions. How much turnover has there been in your county, township, and municipality during the last 5, 10, 15, 20, 25+ years, that is, how many hypocritical hate-filled Republican-hating Republican-haters have moved into your county, your township, and your municipality to hypocritically take advantage of the prosperity and safety that Republicans created there? I should write a book about hypocritical hate-filled Republican-hating newcomers in DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton.)
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.)

— Blue wave drenches DuPage County, aiding Democratic transformation of one-time Republican stronghold. But will it last? – JOHN KEILMAN (DIERSEN: The Chicago Tribune has played a major role in the Democrat invasion of DuPage County. I should write a book about the Democrat invasion of DuPage County. I would focus on hypocritical hate-filled Republican-hating Republican-haters who have moved into DuPage County to hypocritically take advantage of the prosperity and safety that Republicans created there.

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-dupage-turns-blue-democrats-republicans-20201107-u4yp5nl2cvg6div5xmx6gutm5y-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The electoral blue wave predicted by political scientists might have fizzled in much of the U.S., but on Tuesday it drenched a corner of the Chicago area that, not long ago, was practically untouched by Democrats. DuPage County, once known as one of the most solidly Republican areas in the country, appears to have given Democrats control of the County Board for the first time since the 1930s. Two more Democrats are leading their races for countywide office, and could be joined by another when the final votes are tallied. DuPage voters also backed Democrats in every federal race from president to U.S. representative, as well as every state senator and nine of 13 state representatives. It’s a stunning turn of fortune two decades in the making, observers say, the result of shifting demographics, shrewd campaigning and the divisive reign of President Donald Trump. “He doesn’t do well with suburban women and I think that hurts us,” said Jim Zay, a County Board member and chairman of DuPage County Republicans. “It’s time to rebrand and regroup and come back in two years.” Many of the county’s races ended on a paper-thin margin — nine were within a percentage point or two as of Friday afternoon — so it could be contested territory for years to come. But College of DuPage political science professor Melissa Mouritsen, who has written about the county’s transformation, said it’s following a path already traveled by other American suburbs. “DuPage is purple; it’s not fully Democratic yet,” she said. “But it’s at that tipping point.” A history in red  For more than a century DuPage County was as Republican as could be, home to GOP stalwarts such as U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde, who led the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, Pate Philip, president of the Illinois Senate for a decade, and two-time Illinois Attorney General Jim Ryan. As recently as 2000, the election of a single Democrat to the County Board was cause for a wonder-struck story in the Tribune. But Mouritsen said the changes that would result in the county’s political realignment were already underway. One was demographic: The county went from 79% white in 2000 to 66% now, and median household income, expressed in 2018 dollars, dropped from $99,000 to $88,000. As the population diversified by race, income and political ideology — many newcomers hailed from the Democratic power center of Cook County, Mouritsen said — a growing number of people proved amenable to the Democrats. The redrawing of political districts after the 2010 census, a process controlled by House Speaker Michael Madigan, also helped to elevate Democrats to national and state offices, she said. County offices, however, remained thoroughly red. Liz Chaplin, who was first elected to the DuPage board with two other Democrats in 2012, was by 2016 the last of her party on the 18-member panel. “Sometimes I just felt like I was hitting my head against the wall,” she said. “It’s hard when you’re the only one.” Then came Donald Trump. He was the favorite among the county’s Republican primary voters in 2016, but the DuPage electorate as a whole rejected him, giving him only 39% of the vote in the general election, the lowest GOP share in decades. Two years into Trump’s tumultuous administration, the county’s moderate Republicans were open to hearing a new message, said Cynthia Borbas, chair of the DuPage Democrats. “Previously they were like, ‘Oh, Democrats? We don’t even want to talk to you,’” she said. “But because of Trump, more people are paying attention and they’re willing to have more conversations with us. And we’re connecting on the values and issues we care about.” Trickle to a flood In the 2018 election, DuPage voters elected Jean Kaczmarek as county clerk, making her the first Democrat to hold countywide office in 84 years. They also added six Democrats to the County Board. Jamie Wood, who moved to Lisle from Detroit two years ago, said he votes Democratic all the way down the ballot, even for candidates whose names and policy stances are unfamiliar. “My mindset right now is to just have as much of a blue wave as I possibly can just because of how much I’m fed up with the status quo,” he said. Wood, 33, who grew up in Elgin, is familiar with DuPage’s political history, but said young families like his are replacing older residents who were reliably Republican. These new families, he said, consider schools their top priority and aren’t as focused on traditional GOP concerns such as public safety. State’s Attorney Robert Berlin, who ran unopposed, emphasized law and order in a letter he sent in his role as Republican committeeman to Democratic households in his precinct. He wrote that county GOP officials from coroner to auditor “stand for one thing: the importance of public safety and adherence to the rule of law.” Two of those candidates, aspiring recorder Babette Holder Youngberg and incumbent Circuit Court Clerk Chris Kachiroubas, were trailing their Democratic opponents Friday afternoon with thousands of votes left to be counted. Auditor Bob Grogan led his Democratic rival by just 676 votes. But Berlin noted that a referendum asking whether the county should keep law enforcement as its top funding priority was approved by a 3-to-1 margin, suggesting the message was still potent. He said he didn’t know why Republicans stumbled in DuPage, but added that it happened in many other suburbs across the country. “We’re not unique in that regard,” he said. Purple future? Amy Chavez, a Naperville Democrat who won election to the County Board, said her constituents are chiefly concerned about COVID-19 — “When they think safe, they want to be safe from the virus” — and that the new Democratic majority will ensure the health department has what it needs to conduct testing and contact tracing. Paula Deacon Garcia, of Lisle, who was leading her race for a board seat Friday, said her issues are climate change, sustainability and public health, along with lowering the temperature at public meetings. “Since I’ve been attending, they’ve become quite partisan,” she said. “I’m looking for a bipartisan approach.” Republican board Chairman Dan Cronin could not be reached for comment. Zay was hopeful a return to form might not be far away for DuPage Republicans. The GOP needs to do a better job claiming credit for making DuPage an appealing place to live, he said, and must bring more women and young people into the fold. He noted that every seat on the County Board will be up for election in two years. Trump won’t be on that ballot, but another polarizing figure likely will: Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, whose shutdown orders during the pandemic have angered plenty of suburbanites. Borbas, meanwhile, said the county’s Democrats aren’t taking anything for granted. They fought Republicans for every vote in the 2020 election and are ready to do it again, she said. “I don’t think it’s a fluke, I don’t think it’s a one-off, I don’t think DuPage is blue,” she said. “But I think what it means is that we’re in the game now and we’re here to stay.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1. Figure Out What You Want to Do in Retirement The people who are happiest in retirement are those that have a purpose for this phase of their lives. It is best to retire to do something, not just to escape whatever you do to earn money. Maybe think about your retirement in five-year segments. Consider what you want to be doing and what will be important to you in each segment.)

ANNUITY GUYS
— Is One Million in Annuities or Securities Enough to Retire On?
https://annuityguys.org/is-one-million-in-annuities-or-securities-enough-to-retire-on/?inf_contact_key=b216409e52035512b83e7ece2cc88759680f8914173f9191b1c0223e68310bb1

(FROM THE ARTICLE: $1 million is no longer enough to retire on You have to get rich these days just to finance a comfortable retirement. That’s the conclusion financial advisors are increasingly coming around to, as they gauge the direction of the economy in a strange new world of glacial growth and super-low interest rates. “Twenty years ago, someone with a million bucks would have said, ‘that’s great, I can draw down $100,000 a year, I’ll be just fine,’” Jim McCaughan, CEO of Principal Global Investors, tells me in the video above. “But now, with very low rates, the problem of funding a retirement is much more difficult.” Retirees don’t need to be told that low rates have cut sharply into the returns on fixed-income investments. But they may need to rethink how to prepare for what might happen in the future. Many investors are waiting for interest rates to go back up, once the Federal Reserve starts hiking short-term rates later this year or early next year. Meanwhile, the Fed is gradually winding down its vast “quantitative easing” program, which deliberately forced down long-term rates. So as that pressure eases, rates ought to go back up. Right? Maybe not. McCaughan argues that we’ll be in a low-rate environment for much longer than many people expect, for a couple of basic reasons. First, an aging population means the demand for low-risk bonds will rise, pushing up prices but pulling down yields. Second, there’s been a growing gap between global demand and global production capacity, which will keep a lid on prices of most things for the foreseeable future. Low inflation usually coincides with low-interest rates. There’s nothing magical (or scientific) about $1 million as a goal for retirement savings. As a round benchmark, however, it’s been in the ballpark for a couple hoping to retire comfortably. A $1 million principal will generate $60,000 per year in income if the portfolio’s return is 6%, and $40,000 per year at 4%. The amount you need to live on, of course, depends on many factors, including the cost of living where you reside, healthcare expenses, how much you travel and how long you live. But if rates remain in the low range they’re in now—with 10-year Treasury rates well below 3%, say—it will change the math of retirement planning. During most of the baby boomers’ working lives, it was reasonable to expect annual returns of 6% to 10% on a retirement portfolio, without taking much risk. Add Social Security and other pension payments, and a $1 million nest egg was more than adequate for most people.)

— How seniors and their money would fare under a Trump or Biden presidency – Lorie Konish (DIERSEN: Interest rates are far lower than inflation. Democrats and RINOs use age discrimination to get rid of Republicans, and especially to get rid of Republicans who are Trump supporters, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, heterosexual, married, overweight and/or have other health problems, non-poor, gun owners, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/01/trump-vs-biden-what-the-election-could-mean-for-seniors-wallets.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Biden’s platform calls for strengthening age discrimination laws, Johnson noted, which could help seniors who want to continue working. A 2009 Supreme Court decision made it so that workers had to prove age was the only factor that led to a job loss, a higher bar to prove age discrimination in the workplace. Democrats in Congress have been trying to address that concern for the past decade, and Biden has said he supports those efforts, Johnson noted.)

My Democrat GAO superiors did everything that they could to turn those who I supervised against me. They stressed to those who I supervised that I was healthy, White, male, draft avoider, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), 100% German American, non-poor, married, Republican, conservative, Wheaton resident, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, I had three job-related master’s degrees, I had six job-related professional certifications, and I had a job-related professional license.)

https://abc7chicago.com/evanston-gathering-turns-violent-overnight/7540524/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A gathering that included some Northwestern University students turned violent in Evanston overnight Sunday. Some Whole Foods windows were boarded up Sunday morning after a gathering in downtown Evanston became violent, according to police. Police said an unruly crowd began throwing bricks and fireworks at officers. There were windows broken and other property damage in the city’s downtown shortly before midnight Saturday. Several officers were treated for minor injuries. Other police departments from neighboring communities were called in to help restore order. It is unclear what the students were protesting last night. Recently, a student group has been demanding that the Northwestern University cut ties with campus police. University President Morton Schapiro wrote a letter to the community after an earlier incident acknowledging the concerns of injustice, but he also made it clear the school has no intention of dissolving its police department. In a letter last week, Schapiro highlighted a new safety oversight board that will be made up of faculty, staff and students.)

In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I suffered a $20,157/year (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO. My critics opponents shouted that was a) proof that IRS had overpaid me, b) proof that I had changed careers, and c) proof that the experience that I had gained by working for IRS almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year, was worthless. In fact, much of what I did for IRS as a Revenue Officer was similar to what I would do for GAO as an Analyst, including financial investigation; interviewing; gathering, summarizing, and analyzing data; writing reports; and making recommendations. My Democrat IRS superiors had made very clear that they would never promote me beyond GS-12. They had disallowed my education deductions in 1978, gotten rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. They had dismissed and belittled the fact that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979 and that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976.)

— Trump Calls Republican Critics ‘Lowest Form Of Human Life,’ Says He’s ‘Running Against’ Them – Andrew Solender (DIERSEN: RINOs have always worked extremely hard against me. Since 2000, they have done everything that they can a) to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. They ended a) my TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairmanship in 2012, b) my Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee membership in 2011, c) my Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) webmaster service in 2010 and 2004, d) my Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee membership in 2007, and e) my American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board membership in 2004. They almost succeeded in getting ICRC to censure me in 2006 because of my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They crushed my bid to serve as MTRO Treasurer in 2004. I should write a book about the aforesaid RINOs.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2020/10/28/trump-calls-republican-critics-lowest-form-of-human-life-says-hes-running-against-them/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump offered perhaps his most scathing attacks on members of his own party who have criticized him publicly – referred to as ‘RINOs’, short for Republicans in Name Only – amid a deepening divide between the president and Republican lawmakers as his reelection prospects have become increasingly grim. At a rally in Arizona on Wednesday, Trump claimed he is not only running against former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic party, but the “left wing mob,” the “big-tech giants” and “the RINOs.” Just in the last few months, Trump has used the term ‘RINO’ to describe Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), as well as Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, former House Speaker Paul Ryan, former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and former Rep. Tom Ridge. Trump has also used the term to refer to former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove, the members of The Lincoln Project, a group of anti-Trump Republicans, Republican governors who criticized his handling of coronavirus and any Republican voters who do not approve of his job performance. Trump has increasingly incorporated RINOs into his stump speech in recent months as part of his “drain the swamp” narrative, calling them “sickos” and declaring they are “worse than the Democrats.” He took his denunciations one step further on Wednesday, stating he prefers leftists to RINOs, who he called the “lowest form of human life,” and even speculating that audio difficulties at his rally were caused by one: “It’s probably a RINO operating the thing.” Trump’s increased focus on RINOs comes as sitting Republican officials have shown an increasing willingness to break with him publicly.)

If you are White and you seek a government office or a political office, expect that your critics/opponents will use your parents and use their parents against you. What is your home town? What is/was your parents’ home town and your grandparents’ hometown? Crete was my hometown. I lived there 1948-1972. Crete was my father’s hometown and his parents’ hometown. Grant Park was my mother’s hometown and her parent’s hometown. I should write a book about how my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used my parents, their parents, Crete, and Grant Park against me. They stress that both Crete and Grant Park were overwhelmingly German American and Missouri Synod Lutheran. They hint/imply/argue/shout that Crete and Grant Park were full of White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things.)

EAGLE FORUM
— Party Platforms Matter
https://eagleforum.org/publications/focus/elections-101.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is happening to our country? American ValuesIf there ever were a time to go into the voting booth with eyes wide open, November 3 of 2020 is that time. The past few months have been an unfolding drama of lawlessness in the streets, anti-American curricula planned for the schools, and overt attacks on foundational beliefs that most Americans hold dear. The upheaval has been swift and destructive, leading many to wonder how anyone either in or seeking an elected leadership position would not speak out forcefully against the carnage. Some Democrat leaders of the affected cities have either actively called on the police to stand down, or they have decided not to publicly condemn the burning, looting, and murdering in their cities. Many Republicans, on the other hand, have called for a return to law and order, expressing concern not only for residents and business owners but also for the first responders who are risking their lives trying to help injured people and protect property. Are these dichotomous responses indicative of the philosophies of these leaders’ political parties, or are they simply personal views that have nothing to do with party affiliation? A comparison of the Republican and Democrat party platforms can provide much-needed information about the worldviews and intentions of current leaders and those who might be elected on November 3. What is a party platform? Political party platforms are official declarations of the principles, policy stances, and action items of the parties. Every four years, political parties gather for their national conventions where they nominate their presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They also write their platforms, the documents that outline where they stand on specific issues and what they intend to do on those issues if their candidates are elected. The differences in 2020 are stark. Republican – Democrat  If one were to judge the 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms simply by tone, even a cursory review of both would yield important insights into each party’s opinions of the country and its issues. The Democrat Party platform outlines what many might consider to be extremist views of this country – that it is irredeemably racist, that people who were instrumental in the founding and early leadership of the country are unworthy of respect or remembrance, and that the government should take over huge areas of its citizens’ lives. Law enforcement must be overhauled, and white supremacy and nationalism are ingrained sins that must be overcome. The Republican Party platform, on the other hand, begins with a dedication page to those who protect the country and its citizens: We dedicate this platform with admiration and gratitude to all who stand strong in the face of danger so that the American people may be protected against it – The men and women of our military, of our law enforcement, and the first responders of every community in our land – And to their families.)
