— Rauner eager to talk policy at D.C. meeting — Trump still a taboo – Andy Grimm  (DIERSEN: What if the Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee passed a resolution by weighted vote calling for Rauner to work with Trump?)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/rauner-eager-to-talk-policy-at-d-c-meeting-trump-still-a-taboo/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner is planning a rare visit to Washington, D.C., this weekend for a gathering of Republican governors, but Rauner refuses to say whether he is ready to do something even more rare — meet with, or even acknowledge, President Donald Trump. The event has long been a major party fundraiser, and this year could be a potential minefield for GOP governors of blue states. Rauner departs Illinois for the Republican Governors Association’s annual conference having pledged to run for a second term in 2018, despite dismal polling numbers after two years of partisan gridlock over the state budget and his business-friendly, anti-union agenda. Adding to potential headwinds for his campaign is the controversial member of his party in the White House. Rauner has taken a stance of studied ambivalence as regards the Republican in the White House since Trump first began to rise in the primaries. Rauner ditched the Republican National Convention, declined to endorse Trump by name — only saying he would support his party’s nominee — and also was a no-show at Trump’s inauguration. Rauner has revealed one private telephone conversation he had with Trump since the New York billionaire won the presidency, describing it as a “good, positive conversation.” But Rauner seldom utters the name “Donald Trump,” and Friday he did not respond to a question about whether he would attend the GOP governors’ Sunday dinner with the president and first lady. “I’m going to meet with other governors around the country to talk about policy,” Rauner told reporters after a Black History Month ceremony Friday at the Thompson Center. “There’s a lot of changes going on from the federal level. We’re going to talk about Medicaid, we’re going to talk about education, we’re going to talk about regulatory relief, going to talk about more economic growth, growing more manufacturing in the United States of America, more manufacturing in the state of Illinois. “I’m going to talk policy, ideas and working together as governors to advocated for the good changes, so I can grow the jobs and economy in Illinois.” Left unsaid was whether Rauner took issue with the changes, coming largely from Trump, and any mention of Trump’s name. Trump, for his part, has seemed to accept that governors in his party in blue states weren’t going to be vocal supporters. And while the president frequently makes Chicago, Illinois’ largest city, a target in his twitter feed, he has never tweeted a peep about the fiscal crisis facing the state as Rauner remains at loggerheads with Democrats in the Legislature. Rauner seldom travels to Washington and is skipping out on the non-partisan National Governors Association conference, also this weekend in D.C., typically a more policy-focused gathering. Governors from 40 states will attend, according to the NGA website. The RGA typically includes fundraisers, and is a showcase for the party’s rising stars, and the group typically funnels millions into gubernatorial races. Rauner, a millionaire financier before running for office, poured tens of millions from his personal fortune into his campaign and the mid-term legislative races, and it’s not clear he’ll need any boost from his fellow GOP chief executives. It’s also not clear how Trump could affect his bid for a second term. In 2018, Rauner will be one 27 or the 33 Republican governors making a bid for re-election, and one of five incumbent GOP governors leading states that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. Rauner did denounce Trump’s remarks in a video recorded by an Access Hollywood crew that were released in October, in which GOP nominee claimed to have pursued the affections of a married woman and to groping women. He has criticized the president’s executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority nations as “over broad,” but was dinged by Democrats for being out of state as demonstrators swarmed O’Hare Airport in January to protest the ban. In the weeks since, he has not staked out a clear position on immigration initiatives proposed by the administration, except to say that he would not deputize state police to enforce federal immigration laws. Rauner did offer support for Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education, Michigan philanthropist and school choice ideologue Betsy DeVos, during her contentious but ultimately successful confirmation process.)

PEORIA JOURNAL STAR
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps who say “For some GOP governors, best tactic is to avoid mention of Trump” are anti-Trumps who want Rauner to lose in 2018.)
http://www.pjstar.com/news/20170224/for-some-gop-governors-best-tactic-is-to-avoid-mention-of-trump
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As with the other governors, Rauner in Illinois said he is focusing on his state — or at least he’s trying to. He went to great lengths not to stake a clear position on Trump during the campaign — refusing to comment on the race, who he was voting for or even to say Trump’s name. Since the election, he has continued to avoid taking a clear position on the administration’s policies. His strategy is clearly intended to avoid alienating voters in Chicago, the suburbs and other urban areas who supported Hillary Clinton in November, or those in rural counties that went overwhelmingly for Trump. But avoidance also comes with some peril: Democrats, who control the Illinois Legislature, called the Republican governor cowardly for meeting with billionaire donors out of state while refugees were stranded at Chicago’s O’Hare airport after the president’s travel-banning executive order. Rauner already has a slim margin for error after a two-year budget stalemate has tanked his approval ratings.)

 

WSIL TV
— Ohio Gov. John Kasich says there is no animosity between him and President Donald Trump, his former Republican presidential rival. Kasich says after a White House meeting that now that Trump is the president, “it’s sort of like being on an airplane. You want to root for the pilot.” The governor says he shared his ideas on potential changes to former President Barack Obama’s health care law. Ohio was among 31 states that expanded Medicaid under the law and Kasich says Trump “listened very carefully to what I had to say about it and had a very positive response.” Kasich is in Washington for a weekend of meetings at the National Governors Association. – AP  (DIERSEN: I should bring this to the attention of the 93 in my precinct who voted for Kasich in the March 15, 2016 Republican Presidential Primary.)

— Here you go: Pick a politician, watch them get yelled at – Philip Bump  (DIERSEN: This article does not apply to politicians in Wheaton, Illinois. According to Wheaton Mayor Mike Gresk’s City Council Meeting Agendas, “Respect for the duties of the City Council and for the democratic process will be adhered to—in this regard, civility and a sense of decorum will be strictly followed. All speakers must address their comments to the Mayor. Comments that are personally condescending will not be permitted. Speakers shall be courteous and should not make statements that are personally disrespectful to members of the City Council.” However, I should write a book about those times over the decades when politicians in Wheaton a) were not civil to me, b) had no “sense of decorum” with me, c) were “personally condescending” to me, d) were not “courteous” to me, e) were “personally disrespectful” to me, and f) were threatening to me.  In Wheaton, far too many politicians, their operatives, and their dupes talk and act like Mayor Gresk wants to get rid of me.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/02/22/here-you-go-pick-a-politician-watch-them-get-yelled-at/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the legitimate marvels of the American political system is that regular old Americans can yell at our elected officials. It’s not a particularly nice thing to do, of course, but you’re not going to, say, get imprisoned for screaming at your governor in a Starbucks or interrupting your congressman at a county fair. It’s part of what elected officials have to deal with, in exchange for being given the power to pass laws and getting nice retirement benefits. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a resurgence in the fine art of chewing out elected officials. The last time America was so enamored with the practice was in 2009 and 2010, during the heyday of the tea party. Members of Congress would hold town halls and people would show up to yell at them about how bad Obamacare was. Now, the situation is slightly different: Members of Congress are holding town halls and people are showing up to yell at them about how bad an Obamacare repeal would be. Well, that and calls for investigations into President Trump, as Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) can attest.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In order to work cooperatively with several state-level Republican organizations and alongside the Illinois Congressional Committee, a Campaign Support Committee was recently established with three leaders including Montgomery Trustee Stan Bonds. Representing a portion of Will County, Bonds was recently appointed to the position by Illinois Republican Chairman Tim Schneider. The committee is formulated to work in tandem with the House Republican Organization, Senate Republican Organization, the State Republican Central Committee and the Illinois Congressional Committee by synchronizing campaign strategies and resources. Additionally, the Illinois GOP recently organized an endeavor to take a survey of statewide Republican leaders, precinct committeemen and conservative grassroots leaders. Questions centered on how the Republican Party can make improvements in the way it facilitates the GOP’s mission throughout Illinois, and the answers have been collated into a PowerPoint presentation accessible online. Constituents can view the survey results online. Will County also recently announced that its election department has an extended need for Republican election judges in the townships of Custer, Wesley, Reed, Florence and Wilmington. Election judges are compensated for their time, as well as for training.)

http://northcooknews.com/stories/511083558-new-trier-h-s-paid-90k-for-group-to-instruct-teachers-on-understanding-whiteness
(FROM THE ARTICLE: New Trier High School District 203 paid $88,614 to a consultancy to teach its staff why “whiteness” causes black and Hispanic students to score lower on standardized tests. North Cook News reviewed district check registers from Jan. 2011 to Jun. 2016. The Pacific Educational Group (PEG) received taxpayer dollars as part of District 203’s “professional development” budget, conducting “diversity training” and holding “seminars” and “summits” with dozens of New Trier’s teachers. One of them, New Trier teacher Pat Savage-Williams, a lead organizer of the school’s mandatory White Guilt” Day, scheduled for Feb. 28, presented at a recent event in Austin, Texas. Including reimbursed travel expenses, attendance at these events has cost New Trier taxpayers many tens of thousands of dollars more. Savage-Williams is president of the Evanston Township High School Board and has actively promoted PEG in that district as well. PEG specializes in “white privilege” training for public school teachers and administrators. Its founder, Glenn Singleton, preaches that white teachers stop black and Hispanic students from achieving because they fail to understand their cultures.)

BELLEVILLE NEWS DEMOCRAT
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: BND wants to tax retirement income. (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, as inflation is far higher than COLAs, the purchasing power of my Civil Service Retirement System pension and Social Security is eroded.)
http://www.bnd.com/opinion/editorials/article133440444.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And he said this: “we cannot tax people’s retirement incomes.”  We say this: “Why not?”  The feds tax retirement income. Illinois is one of only three states that do not. Instead of some lukewarm reforms and taxing everybody in the neighborhood of 5 percent, what about just closing the loophole that lets retirees escape paying state income taxes? That would put another $2 billion in state coffers and use retirement income to generate a partial fix for our $130 billion state pension deficit. Yes, we can hear the AARP screaming now about balancing the state budget on the backs of those with fixed incomes. True dat. But we could build in some protections for lower retirement incomes, say taxable after $35,000. Illinois has 350,000 people drawing pensions, and of that more than 14,000 are drawing public pensions of greater than $100,000 per year. How fair is it to ask the average Illinois family to pay an additional $745 in state income taxes when so many are paying zip? Letting retirement income escape state taxes is truly a loophole that lawmakers in 1983 giddily and popularly passed, sort of like the free bus rides for seniors regardless of income. Pain is coming in Illinois. Taxing retirees and selling the Thompson Center in Chicago are tiny splinters to be removed before amputations are necessary.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Naperville’s links to presidents, from Buchanan to Bush – Suzanne Baker  (DIERSEN: Did you walk with Bush and Cheney in Naperville’s Labor Day parade in 2000?  I did.  Earlier that year, I asked Governor George Ryan and Senate President Pate Philip to invite Bush to walk in Wheaton’s 2000 Independence Day Parade.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-president-naperville-link-st-0219-20170217-story.html
(PICTURE CAPTION: President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney walk in the Last Fling Labor Day Parade in Naperville in 2000, before they were elected to their White House posts. It was while in Naperville that Bush made his much-reported comment about a New York Times reporter being a “major league a——.” FROM THE ARTICLE: As a presidential candidate, then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush marched in the Last Fling’s Labor Day Parade in 2000 after holding a rally at Naperville North High School. It was on the rally stage before the speech when the candidate, who was oblivious the microphones were live, pointed out a veteran political reporter to his running mate Dick Cheney and said, “There’s Adam Clymer, major-league a—— from The New York Times.”)
— U.S. presidents have made a few stops in Elgin – Mike Danahey  (DIERSEN: What municipality do you live in?  What does the mayor of your municipality think of Republicans?  What if the mayor of your municipality at his/her annual state of the city address in front of 150 dignitaries publicly insulted your municipality’s top Republican promoter not only once, but three times?  What if the mayor of your municipality increasingly talked and acted like he/she a) wanted to ban Republicans from all parades in your municipality and b) drive all Republican individuals, Republican organizations, and Republican companies out of your municipality?  One could compare and contrast Wheaton and Bolingbrook in this regard.  Since 2000, I have taken the lead in encouraging Republican candidates and elected officials to walk in Wheaton’s Independence Day parades.  This year will be the 12th year in a row that I have raised money from Republicans to sponsor entries in the parade.  I 2007, I raised $2,000 from Republicans to sponsor an elephant to walk behind Congressman Roskam in the parade; outstandingly, Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar contributed $500.)

— Urbana business development – Tom Kacich
http://www.news-gazette.com/news/local/2017-02-17/toms-mailbag-feb-17-2017.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “With the primary election near, (Urbana Mayor Laurel) Prussing has been repeating that ‘In the last four years alone, we have added 115 new or expanded businesses throughout the city.’ That comes to fewer than three per month. Even so, is there any way to sort this out? For instance, how many of these ‘new businesses’ are video-gambling parlors, payday-loan storefronts, beer-and-cigarette outlets or pin-money enterprises operating from sewing rooms or garages in private homes? Also, is there a tally of how many larger-scale businesses, in that same time period, have shut down or moved to Champaign?” Better late than never: Today, we got a list from the city of Urbana of 127 businesses that have opened or expanded since 2013. The list also contains seven businesses that are “coming soon,” seven others that have moved and 19 that have closed. The new or expanded businesses include everything from a ballet studio and guitar repair shop to new restaurants and coffee shops. There’s also a medical-marijuana dispensary.)

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/02/cpac-2017-tells-trump-supporters-kiss-off-loads-speaking-list-nevertrumpers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) will kick off next week at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington DC. CPAC hid their speaker list for the past month and just started updating the list this past week. And just as we assumed — CPAC loaded the roster with committed #NeverTrumpers and ignored the grassroots supporters and websites that got Republican President Donald Trump Elected. It should really be no surprise. After all these “principled conservatives” planned a walk out protest last year for Donald Trump. Trump withdrew from the conference but the crowd did give big spender Paul Ryan a standing ovation. That’s CPAC! This year CPAC ignored many of the top Trump supporters who helped get him elected. These top election influencers will not be speaking at CPAC despite their work to get Trump elected. . .Instead the speaker list includes this committed #NeverTrumpers: . .Face it Trump supporters – CPAC still hates you.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— It’s Racial Indoctrination Day at an Upscale Chicagoland School  As administrators foist ‘social justice’ on 4,000 suburban students, parents plead for balance. – PETER BERKOWITZ (FROM THE ARTICLE: Instead of teaching, the school’s aim seems to be hammering home to students that racism plagues America and will persist until white people admit their unjust privilege, renounce their unearned power, and make amends for the entrenched oppression from which they continue to profit handsomely.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/its-racial-indoctrination-day-at-an-upscale-chicagoland-school-1487375679
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What passes for education at many American public schools is too often closer to indoctrination. Consider the seminar day that New Trier High School, in Winnetka, Ill., on Chicago’s affluent North Shore, is planning for Feb. 28. The title for the all-school seminar is “Understanding Today’s Struggle for Racial Civil Rights.” That very term, “racial civil rights,” is misleading, since civil rights protect Americans’ freedoms regardless of their race. Judging from the roster of scheduled events, the seminar might be more accurately titled “Inculcating a Progressive View of Social Justice.” Here are a few of the offerings scheduled for presentation to New Trier’s roughly 4,000 students: “SPENT: A Simulation to See How Long You Can Survive on Minimum Wage”—which touches on race at best tangentially. “Developing a Positive, Accountable White Activism for Racial Civil Rights”—which promotes a divisive view of race as a primordial fact, the essence of identity, a bright line between oppressed and oppressor. “One Person One Vote: Can the Voting Rights Act Be Saved?”—which absurdly suggests that the Voting Rights Act is at risk of being repealed. There are plenty of sessions on the connections that music, art and culture have with civil rights. Very little programming, however, is devoted to actually explaining to students what civil rights are and what their place is in this country’s political tradition. Yet the continuing quest to fulfill America’s founding promise is unintelligible without a grasp of how civil rights are grounded in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Or without an understanding of the often-heroic struggle for civil rights over the course of American history—the abolition movement, the Civil War, the great Reconstruction constitutional amendments, the grievous setback of Jim Crow, the modern civil-rights movement, the landmark Supreme Court cases like Brown v. Board of Education. Instead of teaching, the school’s aim seems to be hammering home to students that racism plagues America and will persist until white people admit their unjust privilege, renounce their unearned power, and make amends for the entrenched oppression from which they continue to profit handsomely. This despite the school board’s written policy to provide a “balanced view” on “controversial issues,” and the seminar’s stated purpose “not to promote the philosophy of one political party or another.” On Monday a group of concerned New Trier parents will make a final attempt to persuade the school board to alter the seminar’s programming to include a diversity of views about race and rights in America. The parents have proposed, for example, inviting black conservative intellectuals—such as my Hoover Institution colleague Shelby Steele and this newspaper’s Jason Riley—or people like Pastor Corey Brooks, the director of Project Hood, which seeks to end violence and build communities on Chicago’s South Side. So far, these efforts have been met with stonewalling and vitriol. On Feb. 6, a group of recent New Trier graduates—some of whom helped plan the seminar day—published an open letter to explain why the parents’ proposals are unreasonable and immoral. The letter opens with a long quotation from Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 masterpiece, “Letter From a Birmingham Jail.” The implicit message is that the New Trier parents are comparable to the “white moderate” King reproaches for preferring order to justice. King’s admonition to the comfortable—to imagine themselves in the place of the persecuted and downtrodden—is a timeless message, but inapt for the situation. New Trier failed to teach the letter writers the distinction between political activism and education. The seminar day presupposes that the pervasiveness and potency of racism in America are facts beyond dispute, rather than hypotheses to be critically examined. That’s why the letter writers dismiss the parents’ desire for a multiplicity of views as an effort “to distract the conversation.” Let’s hope that the concerned New Trier parents succeed Monday in teaching the New Trier school board about education’s proper purpose. If not, maybe the best thing might be for more families to follow the parent group’s advice: “Excuse your child for the day, and encourage him or her to volunteer”—perhaps with Corey Brooks and Project Hood.)

— 2 Chicago Suburbs Named Among Top 10 Safest Cities in US for 2017
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/safest-cities-in-america-2017-413579093.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lake in The Hills in Chicago’s northwest suburbs came in the No. 7 spot, with west suburban Bartlett ranking as the No. 9 safest city in the country, according to Neighborhood Scout. Bartlett reported only 26 violent crimes last year, which is 90 percent less than most cities in the U.S., according to the study’s data. A total of 219 crimes were reported in the city for 2016, Neighborhood Scout’s report shows, with 193 of them being non-violent and property related crimes. Crime rates were even lower for Lake in The Hills, according to Neighborhood Scout’s research, with a total of 148 crimes reported during the course of the year. Only 19 of those crimes were violent in nature, the report showed. Buffalo Grove (No. 12), Wheaton (No. 32), Hanover Park (No. 37), Huntley (No. 43), Hoffman Estates (No. 46) and Arlington Heights (No. 49) all also made the top 50.)

— Sick pay perk piles on more pension debt – Eric Kohn  (DIERSEN: My Civil Service Retirement System pension is slightly higher because of this “perk.”  Virtually all of my Democrat coworkers and subordinates in the federal government used far more sick days than I did.  They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I used far fewer sick days than they did a) because I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth, b) because I have always been privileged, c) because I avoided the draft, and d) because my wife and I gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents.)
http://www.daily-journal.com/opinion/editorials/sick-pay-perk-piles-on-more-pension-debt/article_cc569d8a-171b-5b15-86a1-f883e728d8aa.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Teachers in Illinois can roll two years worth of sick days into their total tenure of service to the state. This additional two years of service tacked on to the end of their career allows them to retire with an even bigger pension. More than 73,000 teachers have taken advantage of this sick-leave perk as of 2015. That will cost taxpayers $3.39 billion throughout the next 30 years. Perks such as this drive up spending and are a burden to taxpayers – and they’re ripe for reform. But instead of tackling spending reform, Illinois state senators are considering a budget proposal with multibillion-dollar tax hikes.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— ‘A Sense of Dread’ for Civil Servants Shaken by Trump Transition – MICHAEL D. SHEAR and ERIC LICHTBLAU  (DIERSEN: Democrats run the federal government. If I was still working for the federal government, because I have always been a Republican, my Democrat superiors, Democrat supervisors, Democrat coworkers, and Democrat subordinates would have killed me by now, figuratively, if not literally.)
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/11/us/politics/a-sense-of-dread-for-civil-servants-shaken-by-trump-transition.html
(FROM THE ARTCILE: Across the vast federal bureaucracy, Donald J. Trump’s arrival in the White House has spread anxiety, frustration, fear and resistance among many of the two million nonpolitical civil servants who say they work for the public, not a particular president. At the Environmental Protection Agency, a group of scientists strategized this past week about how to slow-walk President Trump’s environmental orders without being fired. At the Treasury Department, civil servants are quietly gathering information about whistle-blower protections as they polish their résumés. At the United States Digital Service — the youthful cadre of employees who left jobs at Google, Facebook or Microsoft to join the Obama administration — workers are debating how to stop Mr. Trump should he want to use the databases they made more efficient to target specific immigrant groups.)

In 1972, when I was 24, I took out a mortgage to buy a new town home in University Park. In 1974, when I was 25, I took out a mortgage to buy a studio condo in the Outer Drive East building in downtown Chicago.  In 1976, when I was 27, I traded in that studio condo to the building’s developer and took out a mortgage to buy a one bedroom condo in the building.)

http://www.sj-r.com/news/20170210/more-cameras-police-will-watch-downtown-bar-crowd-this-weekend
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The stepped-up patrol is in response to recent fights near late-night bars. “Hopefully, it’ll serve as a deterrent to any devious behavior and capture any issues there might be,” said Chief Kenny Winslow. The bars came under scrutiny after a video of a fight New Year’s Eve surfaced on social media and was aired on local television news. Police also reported a stabbing that took place downtown in the early morning hours last weekend. Bar owners, police and city officials have been discussing ways to address the issues, including adding more patrol officers and upgrading the city’s surveillance camera system.)

AMERICAN THINKER
— A Federalist Solution to the Federal Bureaucracy – Fred Gentry  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always promoted patronage. Because I have always been a Republican, were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and d) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986.)
http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/02/a_federalist_solution_to_the_federal_bureaucracy.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The federal bureaucracy was created by Congress and is managed by the executive branch. The structure of the bureaucracy was intended to make it difficult for employees to be fired for political reasons. The Civil Service is comprised for the most part of men and women who perform their daily duties admirably and with distinction. Sadly, the result of Obama’s politicized and weaponized bureaucracy has been a fundamental lack of trust in government by average citizens. The very worst federal employees are shielded from the consequences of their incompetence, indolence, and outright corruption by recalcitrant administrators and union lawyers. Personal accountability appears to have taken a permanent vacation. Indeed, the power of the civil service grows every time an unfireable federal employee thumbs his nose at the rules that govern the private sector. Throughout history no attempt by any president to rein in this bureaucracy has been able to do more than slow its growth; simply put, there is no elected official in Washington DC capable of bringing Leviathan to heel.)

GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE

Many millions 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.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Civic Federation calls for 40 percent hike in state income tax rate – Monique Garcia  (DIERSEN: If you ask anti-Trumps in Illinois who can and who should pay more taxes, they will say those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  The Civic Federation calls for “eliminating Illinois’ tax exemption on retirement income.”  Of course, operatives and dupes for my critics/opponents favor this because I get a $50,856 Civil Service Retirement System pension, $17,288 federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy, and $2,028 Social Security.  Virtually all the operatives and all the dupes for my critics/opponents are filled with envy, have severe financial, health, and/or other problems, are not earning credits toward any pension, are not receiving any pension, and/or have saved little or nothing for their retirement.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-civic-federation-tax-hike-met-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A nonpartisan budget watchdog group is calling for dramatic action to get the state’s budget back on track, saying Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democrats are out of easy choices and need to consider raising taxes, among other things. A five-year plan to be released Friday by the Civic Federation calls for a strict spending limit that caps growth at 1.7 percent a year, hiking the personal income tax rate from 3.75 percent to 5.25 percent, eliminating Illinois’ tax exemption on retirement income and lowering the sales tax rate from 6.25 percent to 5.5 percent but expanding it to apply to more services. The group also calls for the elimination of numerous tax breaks that benefit businesses, saying they “do not provide sufficient public value to justify their cost,” and the consolidation of local units of government. Other suggestions include borrowing billions of dollars to help pay down the state’s massive pile of unpaid bills and creating a rainy day fund to better deal with future cash crises. The sweeping agenda will be a tough sell at the Capitol, where a massive budget proposal with similar tax changes stalled in the Senate this week. But it underlines what Democrats and Republicans alike have acknowledged: The longer the budget impasse continues, the more difficult the solutions could become.)

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20170210/news/170219964/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Say what you will about the winter weather, road congestion and state politics, but at least the suburbs are among the safest places in America, according to the website www.Neighborhoodscout.com. The site’s annual list of the country’s 100 safest cities (with populations of more than 25,000) includes three suburbs in the top 12 and 18 among the top 100. The highest ranking are Lake in the Hills at 7, Bartlett at 9 and Buffalo Grove at 12. Others ranking highly include Wheaton (32), Hanover Park (37), Huntley (43), Hoffman Estates (46), Arlington Heights (49) and Palatine (51). The site says it compiles its list by crunching data on criminal offenses from more 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Yes, small business owners can do something about Chicago’s violence problem – RICHARD MEYERS  (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted a) that instead of me, the Post Office should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, and/or a poor veteran in 1966, b) that the Post Office should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran could have my job, c) that instead of me, IRS should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1971, d) that instead of me, IRS should have promoted a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1972, 1973, and 1974, e) that instead of me, GAO should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1980, f) that instead of me, GAO should have promoted a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1986, and g) that GAO should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran could have my job and my preferred corner office.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20170210/OPINION/170219998
(FROM THE ARTICLE: RECONSIDER YOUR HIRING FRAMEWORK  Small businesses are collectively the largest employer in the Chicago market, yet there is one often overlooked area where they can make a difference: hiring. Here, it is worthwhile to pay attention to the facts, as they differ from intuition. According to a 2015 report from the mayor’s office, once a youth in our city has been detained by the Department of Juvenile Justice, there is an 80 percent chance he or she will return to custody within three years. Understandably, small business owners already face enough challenges in trying to succeed, so they therefore can’t take big risks on employees. But, the data shows, hiring former offenders is not the risk many think it is. The American Job Center network, established by the US Department of Labor and the Department of Education, identifies formerly incarcerated youth who are ready to work, have been prescreened, and have received skill and educational assessments, as well as job readiness, soft skills, and vocational training. By giving former offenders employment opportunities, small businesses can offer them a much better alternative to returning to crime. And according to a study by Florida State University, access to steady jobs can substantially reduce recidivism outcomes. Numerous Fortune 500 corporations, including Apple, AT&T, General Electric, and Kmart, and even the U.S. military, have already paved the way and are hiring these individuals who consistently face significant barriers to employment. Now is the time for small business owners to consider this framework as well.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— Left, not Trump supporters, violent – MARIANNE GASIECKI  (DIERSEN: Ever since the Civil War, Democrats have increasingly promoted, threatened, and committed violence to advance their party’s platform which is anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, and anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/feb/9/letter-to-the-editor-left-not-trump-supporters-vio/
(FROM THE LETTER: Over the past year the media has incessantly promoted the idea that conservatives (and more specifically “Trump supporters”) have been inciting violence and hate across the country. The truth is precisely the opposite. Examining the violent crimes that have taken place in the past year reveals that the Democratic Party is responsible for inciting the violence, and that this pattern of oppression through violence is repeated throughout history as far back as the Civil War. According to the FBI, in 2015 violent crimes were up from 2014 by 3.9 percent, and the murder rate spiked by 10.8 percent. This trend was particularly visible in Chicago, Baltimore, and Washington, cities heavily dominated by Democratic legislatures and strict gun-control laws. These three cities account for more than half of the increase, and the trend continued into 2016. Recall the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011. These protests were riddled with rape, drugs, public defecation, the desecration of war memorials and the destruction of public and private properties. The Occupy movement supported communist leaders in Chicago and was endorsed by the American Nazi Party and President Obama, who stated, “We are on their side.” The House Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, sent out an email urging leaders to sign a petition supporting the growing movement. Violence was also on display in the Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore riots, which had the support of Baltimore’s Democratic mayor. But let’s go back even further. The Civil War represented a battle between the pro-slavery Democrats and the anti-slavery Republicans. Southern Democrats so desperately clung to slavery that they fired the first shot near Fort Sumter, choosing war over equal treatment of their fellow man. Following the war, Southern Democrats founded the Ku Klux Klan. To say that every Democrat supports this pattern of violence would be unfair, I know many that are wonderful people. But why would someone choose a party that has been historically oppressive, rather than the party that has promoted liberty and equality through personal responsibility and appropriate legislation?)
