BIZ PAC REVIEW
— ‘NeverTrump’ revenge: Judge orders all pro-Trump material removed from Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum – Warner Todd Huston
http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/10/24/nevertrump-revenge-judge-orders-pro-trump-material-removed-phyllis-schlaflys-eagle-forum-403944
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even weeks after her passing, conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly is suffering attacks from #NeverTrumpers and an activist judge. For what Schlafly’s son, Roger Schlafly, calls indecipherable reasons, low-rated Illinois Judge John B. Barberis has ordered Schlafly’s Eagle Forum to remove all pro-Trump articles which were posted to the group’s website after April 10, 2016. Schlafly spent the last year of her life supporting GOP nominee Donald Trump for the presidency. But she also spent it arguing with a small handful of board members of her own organization about that support. And now, in the weeks after her death, that small group of officers have taken Eagle Forum to court and have somehow succeeded in getting a judge to shut down the Eagle Forum political action organization Schlafly spent a lifetime building. All in an effort to eliminate information about the very candidate she fully supported. In the months before her passing, Phyllis fought off the small group of board members who tried to oust her from the very organization she built. And it was all because she supported Donald Trump against their wishes. In April she issued a video telling the world she was still in charge. But apparently the fight has now continued beyond her death. This month Judge Barberis issued an order filled with demands that Schlafly’s son, Roger, feels are if not illegal, at the very least un-American. The judge’s order seems to be compelling people not a party to the #NeverTrumpers’ lawsuit to do things. For instance, Roger was not named in any of the lawsuits brought against Eagle Forum by the handful of #NeverTrump board members, yet the judge’s order says that Roger must remove all pro-Trump items from the Eagle Forum website. Roger Schlafly, though, decided to take the whole website down and leave an explanation letter in its place because he can’t understand the order given by this #NeverTrump judge. The lawsuit is against Eagle Forum c4 but orders me personally to assist in transferring “Eagle Forum [c4] Property”. This is in spite of the fact that I am not a party to the case, and the court papers say that I am “not associated or affiliated with Eagle Forum [c4] in any way.” Roger also noted that the judge is demanding that he and others on the board refrain from advocating for any political positions as the #NeverTrump activists continue their lawsuit. I have never heard of any political advocacy organization being ordered not to express opinions on a web site. Not in the USA, anyway. I thought that the First Amendment prohibited that sort of thing. Roger goes on to say that the judge also told him he is not allowed to even talk to “third parties” about anything involving Eagle Forum. He then asks since when does any American need permission from a government to talk to a third-party about anything? He concludes explaining what he is doing with the site…  Complying with this order will not be easy. I am not sure exactly what was on the site on April 10. If I remove the pro-Trump articles, I will create dead links. If I explain the dead links, I might be accused of advocating something. I am reluctant to even post the court order, as that might be construed as advocating about litigation. I am not sure that the Eagle Forum c4 even has any property on the web site. Most of the site involves political works and activities of Phyllis Schlafly, and these have nothing to do with the plaintiffs in this lawsuit. I have tried to understand the their demands, but they have never even expressed any interest in the web site, as far as I know. Rolling back Phyllis Schlafly’s web site to purge her pro-Trump views is a dishonest and treacherous thing to do, and I refuse to do it, unless forced by the court. So I am shutting down the eagleforum.org web site for now. I am very sorry about this, and hope to have it back up when the legal issues are settled. So, who is this Judge John B. Barberis? He is the judge on the Illinois Third Judicial Circuit Court and is running to fill a vacancy on the Illinois Fifth District Appellate Court. But Barberis, running as a Republican, was not endorsed by the Illinois State Bar Association and was rated as “not recommended” in 2014.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE: Amid frustration over election, suburban campaign volunteers fight on – Marni Pyke
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161024/news/161029429/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “It’s important to get involved,” said James McCluskey, a 63-year-old Naperville Republican volunteer. “If you’re not informed … that’s the way government blows past the voters and if that occurs you have an uninformed public.” . . . 11:30 a.m. — Naperville  Tables are laden with coffee, doughnuts and campaign literature at the Lisle and Naperville townships’ GOP base in a strip mall. DuPage County District 5 Republican candidate Janice Anderson is distributing bags full of fliers to volunteers before walking precincts in Aurora. Anderson’s favored strategy is to find someone doing yard work and “connect with that voter. Tell them who I am. Look at them in the eye and talk about my race.” Voters aren’t happy, the Naperville Township trustee finds. “They’re angry about the mess in Springfield and what’s going on in the presidential race. I bring it back to what’s important to them … how to fix the roads and making sure we’re running the health department correctly.” When conversation turns to the presidency, Anderson, who backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the primary, says, “I’m for whoever can balance the budget.” Among the township foot soldiers is McCluskey. Monday to Friday, he’s an attorney. On weekends, he’s making closing arguments to voters. “You just have to be able to speak to them and present yourself,” McCluskey said. “You’d be surprised … some people just take your materials, a lot of people get engaged.” In fact, McCluskey enjoys the campaign trail so much, “I wish I’d done this at a younger age,” he said.)

DAILY ILLINI
— Illini Republicans fractured – Adam Kaz
http://dailyillini.com/news/2016/10/24/anti-trump-post-leads-scandal-resignation-illini-republicans/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Trump “Tipping Point”  But all this came to a head on Oct. 8, when Piper published a post on the Illini Republicans’ Facebook page denouncing Donald Trump’s lewd statements about women. Piper said he and the executive board agreed to post about the topic, but the executive board took issue with Piper’s actual post, which went live without their approval. While he noted some members thought the words against Trump were too harsh, Piper disagrees. “We could have gone much further and could have said many other negative things about him up to this point,” Piper said.  “Donald Trump’s recently revealed comments towards women are reprehensible,” the post stated. “On a campus that struggles to fight sexual assault, we find it absolutely necessary to condemn his words and actions. The Illini Republicans stand for the equality of all women and for all people to be treated in a fair and respectful manner.” The post has since been taken down. Correll credited Piper’s post as the tipping point. As the club was split on supporting Trump, Correll said it was inappropriate for Piper to bypass the executive board’s approval. A few days after the post, Menezes received a petition from the executive board asking her and Piper to step down. Menezes alerted Piper that the executive board accused him of withholding funds from the board and the treasurer by holding club money in a private bank account. Piper said these accusations were brought forth by executive board members Bernal, Brown, Elena Ahasic and Jonathan Heideman among others.  All four declined to comment.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: State workers make up a significant part of the 99th House District that covers a large part of Springfield and western and southern Sangamon County. It’s no coincidence, then, that a state worker issue is playing a significant role in the race between incumbent Rep. Sara Wojcicki Jimenez, R-Leland Grove, and Democratic challenger Tony DelGiorno of Springfield.)
— 1,100 non-union state workers getting $3,016 bonuses – Doug Finke  (DIERSEN: In 1989, the Democrats who ran GAO started their pay-for-performance system a) to retain and to promote their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger and b) to get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, without question, under that system, my Democrat GAO superiors always ranked me in the lower half of my coworkers and never gave me any bonuses.)
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20161021/1100-non-union-state-workers-getting-3016-bonuses
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration is awarding one-time bonuses worth a total of between $3 million and $4 million to non-union workers whose bosses say are doing exceptional work. About 1,100 merit-compensation employees are in line to each receive a $3,016 bonus under the plan. “In an effort to recognize the hard work and dedication that non-bargaining unit employees demonstrate on a daily basis, coupled with the lack of systematic increases over the past several years, the state has authorized bonus payments for eligible non-bargaining unit employees,” Michael Hoffman, acting director of the Department of Central Management Services said in a memo to agency directors and others. “These bonuses do not make up for this unfair lack of wage increases for non-bargaining unit employees during previous administrations,” he said. “However, they do represent a commitment that, going forward, all employees will be treated equally, regardless of bargaining unit status.” Hoffman said the last across-the-board salary increase for non-bargaining unit employees was in 2005. The last merit pay program for them was in 2009. The memo says the bonuses are available to non-bargaining unit employees whose base salary as of July 1 was less than $100,000. Those earning more were not eligible. A number of other merit-comp employees were also excluded. Members of Rauner’s executive office were not eligible, nor were employees subject to Senate confirmation, those who left state employment before Sept. 16 and those who worked less than three months during the fiscal year that ended June 30. Rauner’s office said that left a potential pool of about 2,000 employees eligible for the bonus. In order to qualify, an employee had to receive an “exceptional” rating on his or her evaluation. Rauner’s office said about 1,100 employees got that rating. The size of the bonus was determined by adding all of the salaries of all non-bargaining unit employees making less than $100,000 a year, computing 2 percent of that and then dividing that amount by the number who actually qualified to receive it. That came to $3,016 for each of the workers who qualified. The administration has argued that a bonus system is cheaper than raises for the state in the long run because the payments are one-time and not built into a person’s base salary, and because they are not pensionable. The bonuses already have been issued to many, but not all, of the workers who qualify for them. The administration said it depends on how quickly individual agencies process them. Although the state is delaying payments to many organizations and vendors because of the traditional fall slowdown in tax collections, the bonus payments are being made. Rich Carter, spokesman for Comptroller Leslie Munger, said the bonus payments can’t be differentiated from regular payroll when agencies submit payroll information to the office for payment. “There’s nothing that says bonus on it,” he said. “They send us the payroll and we process the checks. As you know, we are required by court order right now to pay payroll on schedule.” In his memo, Hoffman said the bonus system is similar to one implemented in contract agreements the state has reached with 18 bargaining units representing state employees. Most of those workers belong to one of several Teamsters locals or trade unions. In those agreements, 2 percent of payroll was set aside to award performance bonuses. The administration and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which represents about 38,000 state workers, still have not agreed on a new contract. The administration wants the union to accept a four-year wage freeze while also imposing a performance bonus plan. Bargaining stopped in January when state negotiators said they believed the talks were at an impasse. The Illinois Labor Relations Board is expected to rule on the issue next month. An administrative law judge who held hearings on the issue said she believed the two sides had reached impasse on some issues, but should continue bargaining over wages and benefits. ASFCME had no comment Friday on the administrations bonus payments to non-union workers.)

http://www.wowt.com/content/news/Public-losing-interest-in-public-service-397972461.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Public service employment include those who serve in the military and government jobs, but what if the newest class of job candidates doesn’t want anything to do with it? “Bring back this sense of civic idealism that you can make a difference,” says Steven Olikara. Millennials are shying away from public service. At least that appears to be the trend according to Olikara, a millennial and founding president of the Millennial Action Project. The organization’s goal is to bring American politics into a more inclusive and bipartisan age by using the talents of younger generations. “There’s this larger narrative that we have to combat which is that you can’t make a difference in public service,” says Olikara. “The levels of distrust continue to be high levels. Something like 80 percent of millennials don’t trust the government to do the right thing.” Olikara says recruitment and compensation are two huge issues when it comes to incentivizing young people. “There is a systemic problem, we need cultural change and I think the biggest thing I hear all the time is we need to be rewarding talent and rewarding results.” Lawmakers who are not millennials are well aware of this issue, so Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford and North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp held a hearing to examine just that. “We think some of the best missions in the country are in public service, we just need to figure out how we’re going to communicate that to millennials,” says Sen. Heitkamp. She says 31 percent of the federal government is eligible for retirement in 2019. She and Lankford agree that a new wave has to come in and soon. Lankford says with long hiring processes, nothing is fast these days. “Now, almost 100 days to be able to hire one federal employee. That’s a major problem. Most people aren’t going to sit around and wait if they apply for a job even if they want to be able to serve their fellow citizen.” “Hopefully, we can spark some larger public debate around how we can encourage and incentivize,” says Olikara. Among the opportunities young people have is a White House internship program. If you’d like to learn more about the opportunities, visit whitehouse.gov/participate/internships.)

ABC7
— PROTESTERS FACE OFF OUTSIDE TRUMP TOWER IN CHICAGO – Diane Pathieu and Leah Hope
http://abc7chicago.com/politics/protesters-face-off-outside-trump-tower-in-chicago/1560546/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Dueling groups of protesters faced off Tuesday in front of Trump International Hotel and Tower. Both groups said they want their voices heard and plan to keep supporting their candidate until Election Day. During the busy Tuesday morning rush hour, a group of self-described feminists carried graphic pro-women signs referencing lewd comments Trump made about groping women in a 2005 conversation with TV host Billy Bush. A recording of the exchange was made public this month. Many of the signs could not be shown on TV. But their message was clear: they believe Trump is a sexist, who has gotten away with years of mistreating women. “Women are angry. I mean, we’re tired of being silenced. Sexual assault and rape culture is nothing new so Trump is just giving us a visible reason, but I think a lot of women who are here today are here about things they have been feeling for a long time,” said Alicia Swiz, an anti-Trump protest organizer. Some gathered at the protest highlighted the power of the female vote, chanting “women united will never be defeated.” Another group, which was much smaller but just as vocal, was stationed across the street. They said they believe Trump is the right candidate for president, not Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, and believe the women protesting him have a skewed view of reality. “Donald Trump loves women! He loves all of you [expletive],” a pro-Trump protester yelled. “I’m offended at the hypocrisy because they support a candidate that has Validated Bill Clinton’s sexual assault for decades. Hillary Clinton has enabled Bill Clinton. More women were sexually assaulted because of Hillary Clinton’s actions,” said Suzanne Monk, a pro-Trump protester. Dozens of Chicago police officers surrounded both groups and barricades were set up around Trump Tower to ensure a safe and peaceful environment.

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Duckworth wants a bonus for Social Security recipients – GREG HINZ (DIERSEN: Civil Service Retirement System recipients like me get the same COLA that Social Security recipients get. The COLAs that I have received since I retired in 1997 have been far less then what inflation has been in Wheaton since 1997.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20161018/BLOGS02/161019815/duckworth-wants-a-bonus-for-social-security-recipients
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Is she playing Santa Claus right before a big election? Or just helping out little folks who need money at the expense of greedy corporate types? Decide for yourself, but Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Tammy Duckworth surely wants to get some attention with her renewed call today to give every single Social Security and SSA recipient, and those receiving veterans’ benefits, an annual 3.9 percent bonus. That could amount to $581 a head—”almost three months of groceries for seniors or a year’s worth of out-of-pocket costs on prescription drugs for the average Medicare beneficiary—Duckworth said in a statement. With roughly 70 million people getting the extra check, the total cost to the treasury would be about $40 billion. Duckworth’s action came in a joint statement with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., one of the Senate’s leading progressives, a day after officials announced that the annual Social Security cost-of-living adjustment will be a near-invisible 0.3 percent for 2017 after zero this year. The Social Security Administration says the modest hike is all that’s warranted, given inflation. But Duckworth termed it “another disappointment” and “inadequate.” Warren and Duckworth said 3.9 percent amounts to the average percentage raise that top corporate CEOs received in the last year. And to pay for the Social Security bonus, the two would eliminate business’ tax deductibility for bonus payments on top of salary that some companies make to their chiefs. In fact, Duckworth’s office says, such corporate “performance” payments now amount to 55 percent of total CEO compensation. The underlying bill Duckworth and Warren favor to accomplish this has been stalled in the GOP-dominated Congress for a while. But they’re clearly hoping to jump-start it. Duckworth’s opponent, incumbent Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., had no immediate comment.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— IN FRONT OF BILLY GRAHAM CENTER IN WHEATON, “DONALD TRUMP IS ANTICHRIT” (DIERSEN: Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, without question, all elected officials who represent all or part of Wheaton, all candidates who are seeking to represent all or part of Wheaton, all officers of political parties that represent all or part of Wheaton, all those who have religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, and everyone else should strongly condemn this.)
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2016/10/in-front-of-billy-graham-center-in-wheaton-donald-trump-is-antichrit.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: WHEATON – While evangelist Billy Graham’s son Franklin Graham stands solidly behind the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, students at the elder Graham’s alma mater Wheaton College are evidently not in agreement. “Donald Trump is the ‘Anti-Chrit'”, a misspelled chalking said on the steps of the evangelical school’s Billy Graham Center. Although Graham has declared his continuing support for Trump despite videos revealing and rumors suggesting immoral behavior which Graham preaches against, he wrote on his Facebook page this week that he’s not condoning Trump’s behavior: “A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass. That’s simply not true. No one is giving him a pass. I’m certainly not, and I’ve not met an evangelical yet who condones his language or inexcusable behavior from over a decade ago. However, he has apologized to his wife, his family, and to the American people for this. He has taken full responsibility. This election isn’t about Donald Trump’s behavior from 11 years ago or Hillary Clinton’s recent missing emails, lies, and false statements. This election is about the Supreme Court and the justices that the next president will nominate. Evangelicals are going to have to decide which candidate they trust to nominate men and women to the court who will defend the constitution and support religious freedoms. My prayer is that Christians will not be deceived by the liberal media about what is at stake for future generations.”)

WASHINGTON POST
— Federal retirees to get small sip of COLA – Eric Yoder (DIERSEN: Civil Service Retirement System recipients like me get the same COLA that Social Security recipients get. The COLAs that I have received since I retired in 1997 have been far less then what inflation has been in Wheaton since 1997.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/10/18/federal-retirees-to-get-small-sip-of-cola/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Annuity benefits to retired federal employees will increase by 0.3 percent in January, the government announced Tuesday, a cost-of-living adjustment that translates into a monthly boost averaging around $10. The adjustment, or COLA, to federal retirement benefits mirrors that for Social Security and is based on the change in an inflation index from the third calendar quarter of one year to the next. Tuesday’s announcement follows the release of the inflation figure for September, the last month of that count. As of Oct. 1, 2015, there were about 2,054,000 federal retirees plus about another 545,000 survivor beneficiaries, according to the Office of Personnel Management. There are about 44,500 retirees or survivor beneficiaries in the District, about 163,200 in Maryland and about 144,500 in Virginia. California has the most, 215,500. Seventy percent of federal retirees draw their benefits from the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS), which generally applies to those first hired before 1984; by contrast, more than 90 percent of current federal employees are under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), which generally applies to those first hired in 1984 or after. The average monthly annuity of a CSRS retiree as of October 2015 was $3,529, while the average for those retired under FERS was $1,355. Average monthly benefits for survivor beneficiaries of deceased retirees were $1,560 and $544, respectively. There was no cost-of-living increase under either federal retirement program or under Social Security in January of this year, because the inflation count for the measuring period toward that adjustment ended in negative territory. In that situation — which has happened two other times in recent years — benefits are not cut. The two federal retirement programs differ in that FERS employees pay into Social Security as well as into the federal retirement fund and become eligible for a benefit from that program. Social Security is not part of the CSRS system, although some under CSRS become eligible for a Social Security benefit through other work or through a spouse’s employment; in those cases, offsets commonly reduce or even eliminate that benefit. The average monthly Social Security benefit nationwide is $1,355. FERS employees also get employer contributions, of up to 5 percent of salary, toward the Thrift Savings Plan, the 401(k)-style retirement saving program for federal workers, while CSRS employees don’t. But while all CSRS retirees receive a full COLA regardless of age, those retired under FERS don’t receive COLAs until age 62 unless they fall under certain exceptions. Also, a FERS COLA is reduced if the inflation count exceeds 2 percent, a provision that hasn’t applied since the 2012 boost. A COLA applies only to retirees, not to active employees, most of whom are in line for a raise averaging 1.6 percent in January. Increases for the two groups are set through different processes, and the amounts don’t necessarily track each other. Federal retirees commonly use increases in their health insurance costs as a comparator to the COLA. In the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) — for which most federal retirees are eligible — the enrollee share of premiums will increase by 6.2 percent on average in January. That translates into about $11 a month more on average for self-only coverage, about $22 more for self-plus-one coverage and about $28 more for family coverage. However, enrollees have the choice of many plans in an upcoming open season — 31 in the Washington area — and some insurers are holding premiums about steady or even decreasing them slightly. . .National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association President Richard G. Thissen said the developments show that the COLA increase should be determined by a separate inflation measure that specifically tracks spending patterns of retirees. “Given the large increase in health care and insurance costs, it is crystal clear that the current formula does not accurately reflect how seniors spend their limited annuities,” he said in a statement. Many federal retirees also are enrolled in Medicare, which acts as the first payer for those who also have FEHBP coverage. About half of those retired under the CSRS, along with certain other Medicare enrollees, could face much higher premiums for their Part B (physicians and related services) coverage in 2017 than others will pay. That’s due to a “hold harmless” provision protecting most enrollees from Medicare hikes that exceed the increase in their Social Security benefits — effectively passing the entire Medicare premium cost increase to those not protected. Next year’s Medicare premium rates are to be announced in November. Last year, Congress provided partial relief for the 2016 plan year for those affected, and a coalition including federal employee and retiree groups recently wrote to Congress seeking an extension. “Congress must act now to prevent a massive increase in Medicare Part B premiums for this group of retirees,” American Federation of Government Employees President J. David Cox Sr. said in a statement. “Although most seniors would be protected, this group will have to pay more solely because of the uniqueness of their pension system.”)

— Republican representatives withdraw from Black and Brown Coalition – Paige Allen
http://kwqc.com/2016/10/15/republican-representatives-withdraw-from-black-and-brown-coalition/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Rock Island County Republican Party announced Friday that it is withdrawing its candidates from forums hosted by the Black and Brown Coalition. Rock Island County Republican Chairman Bill Bloom says that during the planning of the political forum, a Republican representative was asked to leave, and was told the planning needed to be a “safe zone,” though a Democratic representative was allowed to stay. Bloom also says there were other issues, including unanswered questions about the format and the exclusion of several races. “First off, we weren’t quite sure if it was a level playing field. You almost never get a completely level playing field, we weren’t sure what the slope of this field was at all. It also seemed that things were a little bit slap-dashed, a little disorganized with how it was coming together. And I know they’ve been trying to put it together in a very short period of time, but, but, there was just too many unknowns, too many variables and too many things that couldn’t be explained, uh for us to retain our position in the forum,” Bloom said.)

http://townhall.com/columnists/jeffcrouere/2016/10/15/turn-out-the-lights-the-republican-party-is-over-n2232692
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization. This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media. For a while, there was partial unity as most of the defeated candidates and their supporters endorsed Trump, even Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Yet, after the revelation of a 2005 ‘hot mic” recording of Trump engaging in crude “locker room” sexual banter with Billy Bush, an entertainment reporter, many of these party leaders have abandoned their nominee.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Trump put stop to aides’ bid to research his personal past – Michael Sneed  (DIERSEN: Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, as everyone knows, that if you run as a Christian, as a conservative, and/or as a Republican, sooner or later, Democrats will take anything in your “personal past” that they can spin as being is being anti-Christian, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican and splash it all over their television stations, their newspapers, their radio stations, their websites, their etc. to paint you as being a Christian hypocrite, a conservative hypocrite, as a Republican hypocrite, and/or as an etc.-hypocrite.  What do you say to those who paint me as being a Christian hypocrite because I put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together on Sunday mornings instead of attending Christian church services?)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/sneed-trump-put-stop-to-aides-bid-to-research-his-personal-past/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s true. It’s so Donald. It’s totally shocking. In the wake of a report Donald Trump rebuffed attempts by top political aides to research his personal past, Sneed is told Trump personally told them he had “no appetite for a deep dive” into his personal life. “We knew he had this playboy image, but we thought much of his behavior had been covered in the New York tabloid papers due to his divorces from Ivana and Marla Maples,” said a top Trump source familiar with the inner workings of the early stages of the Trump campaign, who requested anonymity. “Besides, it was the beginning of the campaign and we thought for the primary at least we had enough information. Who knew we’d get this far,” said the source, who verified that Trump’s top campaign brass in the early part of his campaign requested a typical vetting examination for people seeking office. “He [Trump] was not interested in such a background evaluation. We were much more focused on his past and present stances on health care and abortion,” added the source. Now fighting a groundswell of female complaints of past Trump behavior and sexual assault, the free media Trump relied on in the past is now working against him. It’s his female critics who have now seized the free TV podium.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Village records show in the last financial year, which ended April 30, the state sent about $1.7 million to Round Lake Park as its share of taxes including motor fuel, income and video gambling. Murar said losing any of the state revenue to the pension fund would hurt daily operations. “We’re a small community, a small budget, small operating (expenses),” he said. “It would be very detrimental to the village and those services we provide to the citizens.” No opponents to the ballot question have publicly surfaced. Murar said supporters soon will start knocking on doors as part of a public information campaign.)

http://www.wjbc.com/2016/10/15/durbin-hopeful-gop-can-find-footing-after-election/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite the fact he’s a Democrat, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) hopes to see the Republican party find its footing once the election is over. Durbin said he has respect for the GOP, but some of the divisive comments made during the election process so far have “unleashed a force in American politics” he’s never seen. “I’m counting on good, mainstream, conservative Republicans to step up for the good of the country to say, we’ll sit down – and Democrats do the exactly same thing, and say the election has to be behind us. We’ll stand by the president, whoever that may be,” said Durbin. “And we try to find common ground to solve the problems that face this country.” Durbin gave credit to Republicans who have begun backing off their support of Donald Trump. “The recent revelation of what he said to this Billy Bush fellow 11 years ago was the end of it for most,” said Durbin. “And now Paul Ryan, who is nominally the highest ranking Republican in America, has said he will no longer defend the Republican presidential candidate. “I didn’t think I’d live to see the day.” Durbin spoke to students this week on Illinois Wesleyan University’s campus.)

http://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-and-the-emasculated-voter-1476484865
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since when has the American public endorsed affirmative action? Yet it’s a major factor in the lives of every student and many workers. Since when did we decide that men and women are interchangeable in hand-to-hand combat on the front lines? Why do we insist on women in combat but not in the NFL? Because we take football seriously. That’s no joke; it’s the sad truth. Did we invite the federal bureaucracy to take charge of school bathrooms? I guess I missed that meeting. The schools are corrupt and the universities rotten to the core, and everyone has known it since the 1980s. But the Democrats are owned by the teachers unions, and Republicans have made only small-scale corrections to a system that needs to be ripped out and carefully disposed of, like poison ivy.)

HOT SPRINGS SENTINEL RECORD
— Pope sends US church message with cardinal choices – AP  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Catholic Church acts like it is an arm of the anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, and anti-American Democrat Party.)
http://www.hotsr.com/news/2016/oct/15/pope-sends-us-church-message-with-cardi/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pope Francis named 17 new cardinals on Oct. 9, adding like-minded prelates from dioceses big and small to the club who will elect the next pope. Three were Americans in a clear signal to the conservative U.S. church hierarchy that Francis wants moderate pastors at the helm of the U.S. church. The U.S. appointments also sent a more subtle political message, weeks before the U.S. election, with the surprise pick of Indianapolis Archbishop Joseph Tobin. Tobin has openly opposed efforts by Indiana Gov. Michael Pence, now Donald Trump’s running mate, to bar Syrian refugees from being resettled in the state. A U.S. federal appeals court recently used stinging language in a ruling that will prevent the Republican vice presidential candidate from barring refugee resettlement in Indiana for now. Francis has made the plight of refugees one of the hallmarks of his papacy, even bringing a dozen Syrian refugees home with him from Lesbos, Greece. He has asserted that anyone who wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep out migrants — as Trump has proposed — is “not Christian.” “You can find a political message” in the Tobin appointment, said Massimo Faggioli, a Villanova University expert on the Vatican.)

 

GETTYSBURG TIMES
— National save for retirement week
http://davediersen.blogspot.com and http://capitalfax.blogspot.com
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Congress has dedicated the third week of October as National Save for Retirement Week. Clearly, the government feels the need to urge people to do a better job of preparing for retirement. Are you doing all you can?  Many of your peers aren’t – or at least they think they aren’t. In a recent survey conducted by Bankrate.com, respondents reported that “not saving for retirement early enough” was their biggest financial regret. Other evidence seems to show they have good cause for remorse: 52 percent of households 55 and older haven’t saved anything for retirement, according to a report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, although half of this group reported having a pension.)

COLLEGE FIX
— Black student rejects victimhood status: ‘I am going to break stereotypes’ – WILLIAM NARDI (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs shout at minorities, at women, at younger people, at veterans, and at everyone else that Republicans have caused, are causing, and will forever cause all the problems that minorities, women, younger people, veterans, and everyone else has had, are having, and will have.)
http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/29344/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As a young, black woman, life on campus is not always easy for Roger Williams University freshman Kalasia Richer. But her hardships are not the result of slavery from years past – as her professors and peers like to insist – but instead from the current political persecution she says she faces for being a conservative on a liberal college campus. “I have been told since day one that I would not succeed without the demeaning benefits of affirmative action,” says Richer, 18. “One of my professors actually told me that it’s offensive to say that everyone can achieve the American dream.” Statements like these are common among the liberal academia, who teach that “systemic oppression” and “institutionalized racism” are the most significant factors of whether or not one will achieve success in life. But because Richer doesn’t but into it, she’s mocked and ridiculed and blackballed. “One of my classes is entirely structured around the so-called belief in ‘white privilege,’” she told The College Fix, referring to a humanities elective. “Professors shame white students from speaking up against it, and whenever I do they look at me like I’m a traitor.” According to Richer, a political science major, such classes victimize women of color and force other students to justify their current “oppression.” In an attempt to balance the political climate of her campus, Richer took a position as the secretary of a proposed chapter of the conservative Young Americans for Freedom group. But late last month, student government leaders refused to allow the club to officially be recognized on campus, accusing it of being too similar to the College Republicans. “I was disgusted by the hostility I felt for daring to give a voice to conservatives on campus,” she says. “College is advertised as a place for your mind to grow, but I didn’t realize how much of a lie it was until I saw firsthand how these ‘student leaders’ attempt to dictate how students think on campus.”)

(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.)

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.)

— Fact-Checking Family Folklore With DNA Tests  Americans are digging up surprises about their immigrant ancestors using DNA testing and online genealogy research – CAMERON MCWHIRTER  (DIERSEN: What is your national origin?  During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany.  Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F.  Further, according to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)

To keep their jobs and to get promoted, my Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates focused on getting rid of federal employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
