http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-bc-us–catholics-gays-20161012-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An ideological tug of war over the firing of a Rhode Island church music director for marrying his same-sex partner illustrates the confusion that permeates some U.S. Roman Catholic parishes over Pope Francis’ words on homosexuality. Francis’ famous declaration “Who am I to judge?” in 2013 energized Catholics who had pushed the church to accept gays and lesbians. Now, some gay Catholics and supporters who hoped for rapid acceptance find themselves stymied by many bishops and pastors. Francis is being cited by both the music director, Michael Templeton, and by Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin, known for taking a hard line on church teaching about marriage and abortion. Tobin has criticized Francis, writing after the pope’s summit on the family two years ago that “Francis is fond of ‘creating a mess.’ Mission accomplished.” The pope has upheld Catholic teaching on homosexuality, reiterating the church’s opposition to same-sex relationships. But his shift in tone and broad statements about mercy have left a trail of comments that amount to a Rorschach test open to interpretation, say those who have closely followed Francis.)

— SEPTEMBER 13, 2012 FLASHBACK: Wheaton group home (SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_home) for developmentally disabled moves forward  Proposed 15-resident care location would be northeast of downtown Wheaton – Bob Goldsborough
http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-09-13/news/ct-tl-wheaton-group-home-20120913_1_group-care-home-wheaton-stars
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Plans for a proposed 15-resident group care home for developmentally disabled individuals just northeast of downtown Wheaton cleared another hurdle, as the city’s Group Care Home Commission voted 3-1 to grant the project a necessary group care home license. The Wheaton-based nonprofit STARS Family Services, which operates another four-person group care home called Washington House on Wheaton’s north side, wants to construct a new group care home on vacant land at the southeast corner of Cross Street and Union Avenue. The project would be constructed on land currently owned by St. John Lutheran Church, zoned for single-family residential use and used for two parking lots. Plans call for two structures that would be linked by a common courtyard. Each would have six private bedrooms, a great room, a shared kitchen and shared baths for each pair of bedrooms. The project also will include housing for a couple who would live in the home and oversee the evening and the overnight. A volunteer or staff person also will be present in the home during the day. The project has drawn opposition from some neighbors, who criticize the scale of the proposal. In addition, they have questioned STARS’ financial strength and how the home would be used were STARS to no longer be economically viable. “None of the neighbors oppose a group care home,” said neighbor Kathy Langlois. “We embrace it, we applaud it and we welcome it. And it’s absolutely not a case of ‘Not in my back yard.’ It’s a question of scale.” Langlois also said she and her neighbors would welcome the construction of one single-family home on the site. “What happens if STARS runs out of money?” she asked. “This will be a group care home. It can’t go back to being a single-family home.” STARS president Ray Chase noted that the organization has taken great pains to ensure its financial viability. STARS plans to pay cash for the land and has vowed never to open a group care home until it has 150 percent of that home’s projected first year’s operating expenses. In addition, STARS’ College Avenue resale shop generates more than 40 percent of the group’s annual need, he said. “I think we’re pretty stable,” he said. “I think we’ve taken a very conservative approach financially.” Chase also said the group is continuing to try to work with neighbors. “We’ve also done some things to make sure the home looks like it would fit in a neighborhood and isn’t overwhelming in size,” Chase said. “There even are architectural variations between the two homes so they look like different homes.” Wheaton’s Planning and Zoning Board unanimously voted in June to recommend that the City Council approve the project. Last week, three-fourths of the Group Care Home Commission’s members signed off on the project as well. Group Care Home Commission board member Chris Ellerman praised STARS for proposing two linked structures rather than one larger one. He also lauded the group’s model, which involves a married couple living with the developmentally disabled adults, with the adults’ aging parents or relatives being involved on a weekly basis and typically coming by to visit over the dinner hour. “In terms of a home for disabled adults in the community they have grown up in, absolutely,” Ellerman said. “This is their town. I live two blocks away, and I’d be ashamed if I didn’t want to welcome them in my community..” Group Care Home Commission board member Matthew McNear was the lone vote against the license. In an interview on Friday, he noted his concerns about the “scope” of the proposed home and some of the other issues that neighbors had raised. “I think STARS is a great organization and they do a lot of good there, but I think this probably could use some more discussion or some more review,” he said. With the group care home license now in hand, the proposal next heads to the Wheaton City Council for its consideration, likely sometime in October, said Jim Kozik, the city’s director of planning and economic development.)

— Would you be unhappy with $780,000 a year? – CLAIRE BUSHEY  (DIERSEN: How much do/did you earn? The most that I ever earned in today’s dollars was a lousy $120,427 a year.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use that to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being a failed loser and even worse things.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20161013/NEWS04/161019898/would-you-be-unhappy-with-780000-a-year
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The average total compensation for partners at Chicago law firms increased 13 percent in the last two years to $780,000, according to a new study. The growth rate eclipsed New York, where partners in the country’s largest legal market averaged $1.7 million annually, but compensation only went up 5 percent from 2014. By contrast, partners in San Francisco saw their comp shoot up 51 percent to $997,000, according to the report from New York-based legal recruiters Major Lindsey & Africa. The survey sample included more than 2,100 partners from across the country, with 244 from Chicago. The survey only went to lawyers practicing at the country’s largest firms; approximately 8,600 of Cook County’s more than 45,000 lawyers work at such operations. The city’s partners had the 10th highest average compensation among the 14 legal markets ranked by the headhunting firm. Growth in compensation has slowed since the last time the firm conducted the survey: Between 2012 and 2014, comp for the city’s senior lawyers grew nearly 20 percent from $575,000. Chicago’s lower compensation average may stem from the city’s historic practice of making lawyers partner at a younger age, said Jeffrey Lowe, the Washington D.C.-based author of the study. More of the partners taking the survey in Chicago are likely billing at the same rates as associates elsewhere in the country. Chicago’s billing rates, too, are a comparative bargain compared to the rest of the country. Partners in Chicago on average billed at $687 per hour. Only Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Miami and “other” markets had lower rates. Just over a quarter of Chicago’s partners rated themselves as either “not at all” or “not very” satisfied with their compensation.)

— Group home for young mothers proposed for former Wheaton Inn – ERIC SCHELKOPF
http://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2016/10/12/group-home-for-young-mothers-proposed-for-former-wheaton-inn/a8390an/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A group home for new and expectant single mothers is being proposed for the former Wheaton Inn building at 301 W. Roosevelt Road in Wheaton. The Clarendon Hills-based company Love From Above Inc. has a contract to purchase the building from its current owner, PCM Properties LLC, a subsidiary of Invesco PowerShares. The group is set to close on the property in December. Love From Above plans to offer a two-year transitional housing program for women who find themselves in “crisis pregnancies,” said Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, president and founder of Love From Above. A culinary program and fashion design program also will be offered, she said. “We’ll also have a full-blown child care program, where their children will stay within the building,” Florczak-Seeman said. “Babies will be taken care of by volunteers while the moms go to school. We’ll have a full-time licensed teacher on the premises as well who will also work with them on their homework and give classes on finances and mothering classes.” The program would be offered to women 18 to 26 years old, she said, and would serve both expectant mothers and single mothers. The facility would serve up to 12 women. This would be the company’s first facility, which will be called The Butterfly Garden…A Place for Healing and Transformation. Florczak-Seeman, who is 52, experienced an unplanned pregnancy herself when she was 16. “Unfortunately, the choice for me was made to have an abortion,” she said. “I didn’t have any other options. That abortion brought forth some very serious emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual aftermath.” Florczak-Seeman said she wants those in the program to understand “pregnancy is not a terminal disease.” “Pregnancy is not something that will kill them,” she said. “Pregnancy is something that lasts nine months. During that time, they can still continue their education. They can still do what they need to do. They can still have these children and be great mothers, and be successful young ladies in school.”)

DUPAGE POLICY JOURNAL
— Former COD board member Savage asks federal government to shut down DuPage Policy Journal – Chandra Lye  (DIERSEN: Who funds you?  Rich Miller says “I don’t know who funds Illinois Review, but I’m fine with them, too. Stay the heck away.”  David John Diersen funds GOPUSA ILLINOIS (
www.gopillinois.com) and the emails that it has sent out free of charge and without any advertising since 2000.  Those emails have a) gone out each and every morning since 2004 and each and every evening since 2015 and b) included links to more than 247,700 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
http://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/511018371-former-cod-board-member-savage-asks-federal-government-to-shut-down-dupage-policy-journal
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The filing questions the independence of the DuPage Policy Journal — alleging it is run by a political organization — and contends it should not be entitled to press exemption from campaign finance laws. Savage’s filing alleges the DuPage Policy Journal is not an independent newspaper, but rather is controlled by the Liberty Principles PAC through Dan Proft. Proft is a businessman, a radio talk-show host and a principal of Local Government Information Services, which owns the DuPage Policy Journal. Proft denied allegations made in the FEC filing and said the newspaper is owned by a private company. “It’s a legitimate newspaper just like any other newspaper,” Proft told the Associated Press. “I’ll put the stories we do on politics and policy up against any other newspaper in the state.” Rich Miller, publisher of the Capital Fax political blog and newsletter, agreed in a post that the problem with the filing is that the newspaper is owned by a private company. “Look, I do not want the federal government defining what is and is not a legit media company,” Miller wrote. “Progress Illinois does good work, but it gets most of its money from SEIU. I don’t know who funds Illinois Review, but I’m fine with them, too. Stay the heck away.” The FEC has 15 days to get a response from those accused in the complaint. It will then make a decision on whether to launch a full investigation.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The new poll “confirms what the Responsible Budget Coalition’s network of advocates and providers already know,” Bouman said, noting that 1 million people statewide have lost services or jobs as a result of the impasse, a figure drawn from a report put out this summer by the United Way of Illinois. . .Indeed, the poll shows voters are split on how to address the state’s budget problems, with 44 percent saying the solution is cuts alone and 33 percent calling for a combination of cuts and new revenue. Only 12 percent of voters say revenue alone is the answer.)

MCCLATCHY DC
— Federal election agency gets complaint on DuPage Policy Journal – AP
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article107700547.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of several startup newspapers tied to a conservative Illinois activist has been challenged in a federal complaint as a Republican mouthpiece, meaning it should count as a campaign contribution. Kim Savage, a Democrat from the Chicago suburb of Darien, argues in a Federal Election Commission filing that the DuPage Policy Journal is not an independent newspaper, but controlled by businessman and radio talk-show host Dan Proft through his political action committee, Liberty Principles PAC, which got a $2.5 million contribution last June from Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. The paper is one of 14 co-owned by Proft that appeared last spring before the state’s primary elections. The complaint, filed last week in Washington, maintains the DuPage Policy Journal is illegally coordinating with GOP congressional candidate Tonia Khouri and that its publication costs should be reported as political contributions in her race to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Bill Foster. The PAC, Proft, Khouri for Congress and the Khouri campaign treasurer are named in the FEC document. It contends the DuPage paper is not entitled to a press exemption from campaign finance laws because it’s run by a political organization, is not published regularly, is sent to doorsteps or left in high traffic areas for free and includes “coordinated communications” with a candidate that the law bars for so-called independent expenditure committees. “I’m really concerned about all the dark money from special interest groups and their influence on elections,” said Savage, a former College of DuPage board member. She said she thought the newspaper “was a local, grassroots thing and I was kind of appalled when I found out it was a special interest group that publishes it.” Proft called the FEC complaint “factually incorrect in every possible way,” primarily because the papers are now owned by a private company called Local Government Information Services. According to records filed with the secretary of state’s office, Local Government Information Services incorporated on Aug. 15. “It’s a legitimate newspaper just like any other newspaper,” Proft told The Associated Press. “I’ll put the stories we do on politics and policy up against any other newspaper in the state.” The FEC must seek a response from the targets of the complaints within 15 days, then review those and decide whether to investigate further. There’s no expedited process despite the Nov. 8 election. Proft, a drive-time AM radio talk show host in Chicago who ran for the Republican nomination for governor in 2010, began publishing the newspapers last spring. According to the complaint, they are distributed in 14 areas, including DuPage County; Springfield; Chicago’s north, northwest, and south suburbs; the Quad Cities and the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis. Liberty Principles PAC, which Proft says is not participating in any federal races, was named in complaints about three of the newspapers — two in Chicago’s northern suburbs and one in downstate Cumberland County — filed during the primary election with the Illinois State Board of Elections. The papers were alleged to have improperly engaged in coordinating messages with legislative candidates and had not attributed their funding source. Documents indicate the board found the “coordinated communications” complaints were filed on “justifiable grounds” but took no action. In two cases, it ordered Liberty Principles PAC to include a “paid for by” disclaimer in future issues. Khouri campaign manager John Cooney issued a statement calling the federal complaint “a desperate attempt by Bill Foster and his cronies to divert attention” from issues such as protecting Social Security and Medicare and creating good-paying jobs. Foster, running for his fourth nonconsecutive term, declined comment.)

— Inequality Is Still the Defining Issue of Our Time  Fierce battles over trade, labor rights, and executive compensation will determine whether we can really narrow the gap. – Robert L. Borosage  (DIERSEN: What would your superiors say that they did to fight inequality?  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 $18,459 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, that they disallowed my education deductions, and that they 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.)

The event will also celebrate a national milestone of the one-millionth AmeriCorps Member to serve since 1994. 2,200 current AmeriCorps members have dedicated a year to helping communities meet their unmet economic, education, health, public safety or environmental needs. Members receive a living allowance, student loan deferment and training. Since 1994, 37,000 Illinois residents have served more than 52 million hours and have qualified for Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards totaling more than $1.3 billion. Senior Corps Members use their experience to support communities through the RSVP, Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions programs. These 55 years and older volunteers serve as mentors, coaches and companions to people in need. There are more than 11,000 seniors serving. For more information on Serve Illinois, or to find one of more than 2,5000 volunteer opportunities in the state, visit the organization’s website.)

I should write a book about those who hate Corvettes and who hate Corvette owners.  Then I should write a book about those who hate American nameplate vehicles and who hate those who own American nameplate vehicles.)
http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/300484-biden-powell-to-drag-race-on-jay-lenos-car-show
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Vice President Biden and former Secretary of State Colin Powell will drag race to kick off season two of CNBC’s “Jay Leno’s Garage” on Nov. 9, the network announced Tuesday. Biden and Leno will also discuss the vice president’s beloved 1967 Corvette before he battles Powell, but the network did not specify which car models Biden and Powell would race against one another. CNBC added Biden and Powell’s appearance is the first of six new episodes of “Jay Leno’s Garage” airing this year. Other notable guest appearances during the upcoming six-episode season include comedian Jerry Seinfeld, actor Patrick Dempsey, country star Brad Paisley and NASCAR driver Joey Lagano. The vice president called himself “a car junkie” while visiting the Detroit auto show in 2014, speaking about his father’s work managing a pair of car dealerships. Biden showered praise on the Corvette Z06 during his appearance, praising the sports car’s engine power and speed. “I just want you to know that the ’67 was zero to 60 in 5.5 seconds,” he said in Detroit. “I didn’t do that…but it was. But this new Corvette, Z06, is zero to 60, allegedly, in 3.4 seconds.” Organizers behind the Draft Biden 2016 super PAC, meanwhile, also released merchandize last year that featured Biden cruising in a Corvette. The groups “ridin’ with Biden” logo depicted the vice president sporting aviator glasses behind the steering wheel.)

DAILY HERALD
— Roskam flip-flops on Trump; now undecided – Robert Sanchez  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that they will get rid of you if you vote for Trump.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161011/news/161019760/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Just hours after saying U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam was planning to vote for Donald Trump, spokesman David Pasch on Tuesday rescinded the remark. Instead, Pasch released a written statement saying Roskam is undecided on how he will vote Nov. 8. “Hillary Clinton has already disqualified herself by her actions and deeds,” Pasch wrote in an email Tuesday afternoon. “Donald Trump has 28 days left to convince him (Roskam) that he’s the right person to fix our broken tax code, bring accountability to the federal government, and restore American leadership to the world stage.” The statement is very different from what Pasch wrote in a Tuesday morning email. “I can confirm he is still planning to vote for Donald Trump,” the earlier email said. The confusion comes as other GOP leaders are distancing themselves from Trump after a video surfaced last week of a 2005 conversation in which the reality TV star talked about trying to have sex with a married woman and being able to grope women. Roskam, a Wheaton Republican, on Monday called Trump’s comments and the attitude they reflect “disgusting and corrosive.”  Last week — days before the scandal broke — Roskam said the election is a “binary choice” and he was planning to vote for Trump. He said he views Trump as a “wild card” who he was “choosing to vote for … over the unworthy candidate.” Roskam said Trump has made comments during the campaign that he doesn’t agree with. He also said he won’t defend “every wild statement” Trump makes.)

— Changing patterns – Mark Mellman  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, colleges focus on cranking out “good little Democrats” who despise, if not hate, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://thehill.com/opinion/mark-mellman/299299-mellman-changing-patterns
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Much has been written about the increasing proportion of the electorate that is made up of minorities: African-Americans, Latinos, Asians and others. While Republicans’ grassroots hostility to diversity makes life very difficult for the GOP at the presidential level, important and under-discussed transformations have impacted white voters as well. The share of noncollege-educated whites has been cut in half since 1980. When Ronald Reagan defeated Jimmy Carter, nearly two-thirds of the electorate was made up of noncollege-educated whites. By 2012, that number had shrunk to just 37 percent. Meanwhile, as minority participation has risen, white college graduates’ share of the electorate has remained stable, so that in 2012, white voters divided about evenly between college and noncollege graduates.  That dramatic change in educational attainment presents profound political implications. Pew’s recently published compendium of party identification data helps sort through the numbers. In 1992, whites without college experience were more likely to identify as Democrats than as Republicans by a 9-point margin. In the quarter-century since, party identification among noncollege whites was closely contested, with Democrats holding on to a few more in some years and Republicans edging ahead in others. Beginning in 2008, the GOP margin with noncollege whites increased substantially, reaching 26 points this year. Despite what some would have you believe, this is not wholly an effect of Donald Trump. While the GOP advantage reached its current zenith this year, it had been moving strongly in that direction for the past eight. At the same time, a wholly opposite process is at work among whites who have graduated from college. In 1992, whites with a college degree were even more Republican than whites without a degree were Democratic. College-educated whites identified with the Republican Party by an 11-point margin when Bill Clinton defeated George H.W. Bush. But, beginning in 2004, that gap narrowed substantially — today, Democrats enjoy a 1-point edge with college-educated whites. That margin is fueled, importantly, by those with post-graduate experience. What was an even split in 1992 has grown into a 12-point Democratic advantage among those with a post-graduate education. So while Republicans are, and have been, making gains with noncollege whites, they are suffering continuing — albeit smaller — defections from whites who hold a college degree. In the long run, that’s bad news for the GOP, because while whites continue to shrink as a proportion of the electorate, noncollege whites — Republicans’ real base — are shrinking, too. Over the last 20 years, the percent of whites with a bachelor’s degree or more increased at about two-thirds of a percentage point a year, or 2.7 points every four years. Before conservatives start yelling about the liberal academic elite, it is worth noting that there is significant controversy about the magnitude and mechanism of what happens to political attitudes on campus.)

Scott Ard, who worked for more than three years at Yahoo until early 2015, says he and others were terminated to “accommodate management’s subjective biases and personal opinions, to the detriment of Yahoo’s male employees,”  according to a lawsuit filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., this week. The suit alleges the performance-rating system, fostered by Mayer, resulted in a rapid succession of individual layoffs, which violates the U.S. and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) acts that require advance notification of mass layoffs.)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-citing-beating-of-officer-chicago-s-top-cop-says-police-are-second-guessing-themselves-20161006-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chicago’s top cop said Thursday one of his officers was seriously beaten at an accident scene because the national focus on police shootings has caused officers to second-guess themselves. Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the patrol officer told him she did not use her gun to defend herself for fear of a backlash.  “She didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news,” he said. The injured officer, a 17-year Chicago police veteran, got into a struggle with a man who allegedly was high on PCP after she stopped at a crash scene in the Austin community on the West Side on Wednesday morning. The suspect smashed the officer’s face into the pavement repeatedly until she was unconscious, police said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Connecting with an audience of high school students who for the most part aren’t old enough to vote isn’t always easy for political candidates. But Tonia Khouri, Republican candidate for the 11th Congressional District on the November ballot, had a definite ace in the hole at Tuesday’s candidate fair and forum at Waubonsie Valley High School in Aurora. The event was hosted by the YMCA Youth and Government delegations from Indian Prairie District 204’s three high schools in conjunction with the civics education group Mikva Challenge and the League of Women Voters of Naperville. Khouri was one of eight candidates and one candidate representative appealing for voter and volunteer support. One of her talking points was that while many students aren’t voting constituents, they still can participate in the political process by joining a campaign as a volunteer, making phone calls or handing out literature.)

— Will Illegal Foreign Voters Steal the Election? – Michelle Malkin  (DIERSEN: How many of the many millions who are in America illegally will use their false identifications to vote for Clinton and for the other Democrats?  Ever-increasingly, Democrats side with illegals and against Americans.)
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=15631
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It could all come down to Colorado.”  That’s the latest conventional wisdom from presidential poll watchers. But it may not be legal American citizens in my adopted home state who choose the next commander in chief. Instead, it could very well be foreign noncitizens voting illegally in the Rocky Mountains — and in other crucial swing states — who seal our country’s fate. Former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler identified nearly 5,000 noncitizens in Colorado who voted in the 2010 general election. Gessler’s office uncovered upwards of 12,000 noncitizens registered to vote. Liberal groups who oppose stronger election system protections attacked him for trying to verify citizenship status — because God forbid public officials sworn to uphold the rule of law actually do anything to enhance the integrity of our election system! Compounding the problem: The militant immigration expansionist group Mi Familia Vota, connected with the Service Employees International Union, has ramped up its efforts in swing states to facilitate naturalization and registration of Latino voters who will promote the open-borders agenda at the polls. Another rare defender of American sovereignty, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, fought in court for his state’s right to require citizenship documents from people who register to vote at motor vehicle offices. Last month, a federal appeals court struck down the Kansas law despite the U.S. Constitution’s conferral of responsibility for determining who may vote to states. In a scene straight out of “Alice in Wonderland,” Kobach faced a contempt hearing for battling against those who hold contempt for truly free and fair elections. He was forced to sign an agreement with the ACLU allowing more than 18,000 motor-voter registrants to cast ballots this November while litigation continues. Last year, undercover investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team blew the whistle on North Carolina political operatives who encouraged people to vote even if they were noncitizens. Like Kobach, O’Keefe endures attacks on his efforts to ensure clean elections by grievance-mongers screaming about phony voter “disenfranchisement.” Never mind that a nonpartisan study in 2014 from Old Dominion University concluded “that 6.4 percent of noncitizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of noncitizens voted in 2010.” Put on your shocked faces: These illegal noncitizen voters overwhelmingly supported Democrats. And their votes were enough to tilt the presidential election results in North Carolina to President Obama, along with handing over “Democratic victories in congressional races including a critical 2008 Senate race (Al Franken’s victory in Minnesota) that delivered for Democrats a 60-vote filibuster-proof majority in the Senate.” The ACLU and other left-wing groups sabotaging voter integrity laws see no voter fraud, hear no voter fraud and speak no voter fraud. Thanks to their efforts, voter ID laws have been tossed in Texas, Wisconsin and North Carolina. Committed to flooding the voting rolls with every last potential Democrat constituent, their operational motto is: No unqualified voter left behind. But J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department election lawyer in the Voting Rights Section, has exposed the systemic assault on the election process at every level by activist groups funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, including: –Blocking citizenship verification. –Automatic voter registration of welfare recipients without local verification checks. –Massive foreign language ballot expansion. –Obstruction of efforts to include state qualification instructions on voter registration forms. This past week, the Public Interest Law Foundation uncovered thousands of foreign aliens registered to vote in swing states Virginia and Pennsylvania thanks to the federal Motor Voter law. It’s the tip of the iceberg because the studies include just a small sample of counties. Oh, Virginia voters, you’ll be thrilled to know that your top election officials are now trying to cover up the true extent of the scandal. PILF noted that the commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections issued a written guidance to local election officials instructing them “not to respond to our requests for records pertaining to non-citizen voters.” In Pennsylvania, election officials are so apathetic and incompetent that even when aliens begged to get off the voter rolls because they had never registered to vote in the first place, they were ignored. Catherine Engelbrecht of election integrity activist group True the Vote is right: “Just voting isn’t enough.” Keeping this republic depends on the vigilance of citizens committed to an almost impossible task these days: Making American elections American again.)

http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/10/04/sex-abuse-survivor-urges-lawmakers-to-change-state-statues-on-child-sex-abuse/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Scott Cross made headlines when he testified that former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert abused him when he was a wrestler at Yorkville High School in the late 1970’s. He says sometimes it takes a lifetime for survivors to come forward. “I understand that the average age that an individual is willing to come forward is roughly 42 years of age. Our current state stops at age 38. It is unbelievably hard to step forward and confront a person of power and trust in somebody that you idolized and respect,” said Cross, who is now 54. He is also the brother of former Republican statehouse leader Tom Cross.)

— Some MBA programs are receiving fewer applications. Here’s why. – Ally Marotti  (DIERSEN: Do you have an MBA?  In 1971, IRS hired me as a GS-7 (currently $43,915) Revenue Officer.  Back then, IRS encouraged its Revenue Officers to take graduate courses in business, accounting, and law.  In 1972, I started taking graduate business courses at Loyola, I deducted the courses, and earned an MBA in 1976. However, it became increasing clear that my Democrat IRS superiors wanted to replace me with someone who was a Democrat, a minority, a female, younger than me, and/or a veteran. In keeping with that, in 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors disallowed all the aforesaid courses. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the courses a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, d) qualified me for a new trade or business, and e) were a distraction.  I took IRS to Tax Court and I won, the court allowed all my graduate business courses.  However, the court disallowed the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul 1976-1978 by accepting my Democrat IRS superiors’ argument that those courses qualified me for a new trade or business.)

Nevertheless, UIC accepted me in 1966 a) because I had taken college preparatory courses, because I was in the upper 20% of my class, and because my ACT score was 24.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Illinois Auditor General released its performance audit on College of DuPage on Wednesday Sept. 28, offering 19 recommendations for the Board of Trustees to improve oversight, operations and transparency. The college agrees with all 19 points. The report examined whether the college fulfilled its responsibilities during fiscal years 2011 through 2014, revealing that the board of trustees was not evaluating former President Robert Breuder’s performance annually, as is required by policy. Lack of oversight and approval of financial investments, contracts and budget transfers also raised questions.)
