WASHINGTON EXAMINER
— Five new GOP women to watch in 2020 – Carol Davis
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/five-new-gop-women-to-watch-in-2020
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Jeanne Ives is a former U.S. Army platoon leader and former three-term Republican state representative challenging Democrat Sean Casten in Illinois’ sixth district. She’s no stranger to taking on the entrenched interests of the party establishment and has proven again and again to be a grassroots favorite. This should come as no surprise at a time when all too many Republicans are prone to cede ground on the issue of fiscal responsibility. Ives has instead made sticking up for the Illinois taxpayer a cornerstone of her platform.)

— Law banning salary history will be life-changing for workers The law, signed today by Gov. J.B. Pritzker, is a tool to fight the wage gap, and to lift the entire economy up in the process. – CHERITA ELLENS and WENDY POLLACK (DIERSEN: If I had not been denied my 7th Amendment rights in Diersen v. GAO, I would presented a jury with many examples in which GAO paid its female employees more than it paid its male employees who had more job-related work experience, more job-related education, more job-related professional certifications, and/or more job-related professional licenses. GAO was under tremendous pressure from Democrat politicians to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young Democrat females.)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/opinion/law-banning-salary-history-will-be-life-changing-workers
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Questions about salary history are extremely common. A recent survey showed that of 15,000 people currently evaluating job offers, 43 percent had been asked for salary history during the interview process. Imagine the cumulative effects of being asked about previous wages when considering a new job over the course of a career. Salary history questions are a major contributing factor in both racial and gender wage gaps. And this is exacerbated for women of color, who, because of the realities of intersectionality, often face both. Black women working in the U.S. make just 61 cents to a white man’s dollar. For Native American women, it’s 58 cents. For Latinas, 53 cents. And when a potential employer asks for past wages, it allows that pay inequity to continue, impacting future wages and earning potential. Over a career, a woman of color can lose over $1 million to the wage gap, further widening the wealth gap. This loss of income has an impact on opportunities afforded to their families, support for their communities and the economy at large.)

DAILY HERALD
— DuPage probation employees rally to demand higher pay – Robert Sanchez
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190730/dupage-probation-employees-rally-to-demand-higher-pay
(FROM THE ARTICLE: They say those employees are “vastly underpaid” for their work. Probation officers are required to have a bachelor’s degree. Many who work for DuPage County have an advanced degree or other specialized credentials. The starting salary for a probation officer is $41,659 a year. The top annual salary is $59,562. However, McNamara said there are probation officers with more than 18 years of service who aren’t at the top of the pay scale. Nearly a third of the county’s probation employees have to work a second job to make ends meet, according to a union survey. McNamara said 44 employees have left in the last two years, many for other jobs with better-paid probation departments. “Why are you letting the taxpayers of DuPage pay to train (probation officers) only for them to leave?” she said. In addition to higher wages, the workers hope the new pact includes flexible scheduling.)

When GAO promoted me to GS-13 (currently $98,198/year) in 1986 when I was 38 years old, I had the following qualifications: almost 7 years of experience working for GAO, almost 9 years of experience working for IRS, licensed CPA since 1981, Certified Internal Auditor since 1981, master’s degree in accounting from DePaul in 1980, passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, MBA from Loyola in 1976, bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970, and Treasurer for the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter since 1983.)

From that start in 2004, he has stepped into roles as an elected Milton Township trustee and then as the employed executive director of the township’s Community Emergency Response Team; as chairman of the Milton Township Republicans; and then as vice chairman and now chairman of the countywide organization. Keller recently sat down with the Daily Herald to share the party’s outlook after a 2018 election that found Democrats winning an unprecedented number of county, state and national seats. Here is an edited version of the conversation.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190729/casten-seeking-second-term-after-awesome-humbling-first-months-in-congress
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten’s opponent from the Republican Party could be former Wheaton City Council member and Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, who held the statewide position during former Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration. Or it could be former Wheaton City Council member, state representative and gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives, who ran against Rauner in the 2018 primary. Casten campaign spokeswoman Chloe Hunt said in a news release that both potential Republican challengers would take opposite stands from Casten on issues such as abortion and taxes. “Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti both embrace an extreme partisan ideology that would deny a woman’s right to choose and raise our health care costs,” Hunt said. “They both strongly support President Trump and they both are wildly out of touch with the concerns of the 6th Congressional District.” Ives launched her campaign by filing a statement of candidacy July 18 with the Federal Election Commission. Sanguinetti has been campaigning since April. Sanguinetti’s campaign has criticized Casten for being “out of touch” with his constituents, for rubber-stamping priorities of House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi instead of being “a centrist,” and for saying he wants to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. . .The National Republican Congressional Committee, for example, is calling out Casten and fellow freshman U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of the 14th District for votes related to military spending, saying they both are playing to a “socialist base” and putting “partisan extremism ahead of the safety of our brave troops.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— It’s No Longer about Equality – Jeffrey Folks
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/07/its_no_longer_about_equality.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Minorities achieved legal equality in the 1960s, and they proceeded to claim the equivalent of reparations in the form of affirmative action, minority set-asides, preferential admissions based on race, and thousands of informal arrangements in the workplace granting preference in terms of evaluations and workload. As minorities gained these preferences, some became more aggressive. Some version of the Squad’s tactic of calling out whites and daring them to talk back became commonplace across society. Many Americans have witnessed blacks stepping to the front of the line and expecting to be served first. Many have seen minorities promoted ahead of more experienced whites with the idea that minorities need to be “represented.” But what we see now is different. It is not just society helping out those who have been disadvantaged in the past. It is a form of aggressive prejudice against, disdain for, and potential violence against whites. As I see it, the Squad epitomizes this new stage in race relations. It’s fortunate we have a president who recognizes what these women are about and is willing to stand up to them.)
— Reparations: A flawed stratagem – Sam Younnokis (DIERSEN: From what I see, if the Democrats defeat Trump in 2020, they will appoint “Reparations Czars” in each precinct in America who will determine how much reparations each resident of the precinct must pay. The more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you would have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Trump Should Never Release His Tax Returns – David Thomas Roberts (DIERSEN: Democrats use tax return information to destroy Republicans. In 1978, the Democrats at Money Magazine and the Democrats at IRS used my tax returns to hint/imply/argue/shout that my education deductions were improper and should be disallowed. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul since 1976 a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/davidthomasroberts/2019/07/29/trump-should-never-release-his-tax-returns-n2550685
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The latest data available from the IRS showed 2.2 million tax return errors in 2015 without an audit involved. Several years ago, Money Magazine gave a rather mundane sample family tax return to complete to 45 tax professionals and received 45 different tax outcomes, some as much as 160 percent different in the amount of taxes due or refunds to be received. It is literally impossible for anyone with complex tax returns to absolutely know beyond a shadow of a doubt if our tax professional did it right.)

They asked questions to confirm that I was conservative, Republican, Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, draft avoider, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and that my ancestors had been in America since 1844. To paint my wife and I as being undeservedly filthy rich DINKs, they asked me questions to confirm my wife’s employment and job perks, that we owned a home in Wheaton, that we owned three cars – a 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale, 1978 Chevy Chevette, and a 1972 Corvette, and that we owned a town home in University Park and had rental income from it.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite the upcoming Illinois marijuana legalization Jan. 1, 2020 it’s business as usual at the Modern Cannabis booth. MOCA, a marijuana dispensary, has been a staple of Pitchfork for at least two years, the dispensary itself open since 2016.

Of the 200 graduates, 100 responded to the event questionnaire, 67 attended one or more of three weekend events, and 31 spouses/guests attended one or more of the events. Sadly, more than 48 of the 200 have passed away. I was one of the few who had attended all three of the previous reunions – the 25th in Beecher, the 20th in Matteson, and the 10th in Homewood. One of my classmates, Dennis Peters from Morris, ran for state representative in 1998.)

MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
— Can Facebook predict your future health? Researchers found 21 conditions were predictable from the social media network alone. – Najja Parker
http://www.startribune.com/can-facebook-predict-your-future-health/512600962/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For instance, those who used “drink” and “bottle” had an increased risk of alcohol abuse. And terms expressing hostility, such as expletives, were more predictive of drug abuse and psychoses. “This work is early, but our hope is that the insights gleaned from these posts could be used to better inform patients and providers about their health,” lead author Raina Merchant said. “As social media posts are often about someone’s lifestyle choices and experiences or how they’re feeling, this information could provide additional information about disease management and exacerbation.”)

— Ten Ways Your Summer Internship Or Temp Job Enhances Your Career Even If You Don’t Get Hired Full-Time – Caroline Ceniza-Levine (DIERSEN: Were you an intern? GAO audits IRS. When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinated did not want me to transfer, but failing that, they wanted me to transfer as a GS-4 Step 1 (currently $33,591/year) intern, that is, to suffer a $60,001/year (64%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)
