(FROM THE LETTER: Same sex marriages are legal and adoptions are now permitted. “Transing” from one gender to another is unusual no matter how you cut it. There is no reason for any hostility to gays and for those that have changed genders, but endorsing and even encouraging it is objectionable to many who have different views and believe strongly in the traditional family with one mom and one dad. There are celebs and great poets and philosophers who have been gay and have made contributions to society, no doubt about it. But the foundations for their good work had nothing to do with their sexual orientation.)

ATLANTIC
— Why Conservatives Are Turning Against Higher Education College isn’t providing an effective engine of upward mobility for most Americans. – Reihan Salam
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/higher-education-has-become-increasingly-partisan/596407/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a recent gathering of conservatives, for example, Hawley drew a straight line from the declining economic prospects of non-college-educated workers to a number of social maladies. “Just about any American worker without a four-year college degree will have a hard time in the cosmopolitan economy. Maybe that’s one reason why marriage rates among working-class Americans are falling, why birth rates are falling, why life expectancy is falling. All the while, an epidemic of suicide and drug addiction ravages every sector, every age group, every geography of the working class.” This divergence of the economic prospects of the college-educated and non-college-educated is hardly a new development. What is new, though, is the growing interest among Republican lawmakers, Hawley included, in doing something about it legislatively. One implication of the senator’s remarks is that Congress ought to be more solicitous of the interests of the non-college-educated, and to that end the senator recently introduced legislation that, according to The Hill, would allow low-income students to use federal dollars currently earmarked for higher education to pursue vocational training. Leaving aside the merits of Hawley’s proposal, there is reason to believe that it is good politics, or rather good Republican politics. As the Pew Research Center finds in a new survey, there’s been a sharp increase in dissatisfaction with America’s colleges and universities among Republicans in recent years, and it makes perfect sense for right-of-center policy makers to want to do something about it. Consider the changing composition of America’s major-party coalitions. Shortly after the 2018 midterms, Adam Harris observed that the Trump presidency was accelerating the “diploma divide,” which refers to the starkly different voting patterns of college-educated white voters and those without a degree, a split that is unique to whites. In the midterms, Republicans did 16 points better among whites without a college degree, while securing the votes of only 45 percent of their college-educated counterparts. In contrast, when George H. W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in 1988, he did so in part by winning college-educated white voters by 20 points. Another factor in the diploma divide is the gender gap in college attendance and completion. In the 1980s, women began graduating from college in higher numbers than men, and since then, their advantage has only widened. Today, you have to go up to the 60-and-over demographic before you find men outnumbering women among college graduates. The diploma divide has also had implications for partisan geography. When Republicans lost the House in 2006, half of their vulnerable seats were in districts that had more college graduates than the national average; that number was 70 percent for the 2018 midterms.)

I have served as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000. I worked for GAO as an Analyst for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654/year. What GAO Analysts do (https://www.gao.gov/about/careers/career-paths/) is extremely similar to what journalists do. In addition, I became a Forensic Accountant in 1997, Certified Financial Services Auditor in 1996, Certified Government Financial Manager in 1994, Certified Fraud Examiner in 1990, Licensed CPA in 1981, Certified Internal Auditor in 1981, and CPA in 1979.) 
https://work.chron.com/requirements-necessary-become-journalist-12514.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Educational Requirements A bachelor’s degree is necessary in this competitive profession. Journalism or communications should be your major, but it’s a also good idea to minor in a specialized subject, such as political science or economics. A broad liberal arts background is required for a journalism degree, and many journalism programs require a concentration, such as electronic news or public affairs reporting, but a minor degree can give you an edge over other job seekers. For example, a journalism degree with a concentration in environmental reporting, along with a minor in a physical science, can prepare you well for science reporting. Gaining Experience You need some experience to get a job as a journalist, but you don’t necessarily need a job to get experience. Many employers won’t even look at your resume unless you have an internship listed. Your school career center can help you find internships and you can list them on your resume. Even if you intend to be a broadcast journalist, it’s a good idea to have a portfolio of writing clips to demonstrate you understand how to report on the news. Join your college newspaper staff and look for summer employment with small, local newspapers, television or radio stations. Try freelance writing for online publications or local media outlets.)

https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/512815817-past-incident-with-a-black-student-haunting-d41-board-president-robert-bruno
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some concerned Glen Ellyn residents are questioning what D41 board president Robert Bruno, 64, is hiding about his past as a high school social studies teacher in New Jersey. Back in 1986, Bruno was not rehired by the Westfield School District in Jersey for reasons that included “an incident with a black student,” “the man himself,” and “lack of professionalism,” the Westfield Leader newspaper reported at the time. Recent online conversations surrounding the June 5, 1986 article on a neighborhood chat site, Glen Ellyn Forum, caught the attention of village resident Jeff Cooper; he challenged Bruno during the public comment period at the July 15 school board meeting. “The newspaper didn’t go into any details about the incident, so I told him we need clarity on this,” Cooper told the DuPage Policy Journal. “We need to know what happened.” Cooper also asked Bruno if he told the University of Illinois, where he is currently a professor of labor and employment relations, about the incident when the university was considering hiring him. He then asked Bruno to step down as president of the board until it becomes clear what happened.)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

— IVES puts on the gloves – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST
https://www.politico.com/newsletters/illinois-playbook/2019/07/19/ives-puts-on-the-gloves-lori-jabs-back-at-toni-4-cops-fired-in-laquan-mcdonald-case-459933
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the early 1900s an influx of Mexican immigrants came to the US fleeing political unrest in their home country. With them, they brought the practice of smoking cannabis recreationally. And it took off. The Spanish word for the plant started to be used more often too. Marijuana. Or as it was spelled at that time, marihuana, with an “H. This is when the more sensational headlines about the drug began to appear. In 1936, a propaganda film called Reefer Madness was released. In the movie, teenagers smoke weed for the first time and this leads to a series of horrific events involving hallucination, attempted rape, and murder. Much of the media portrayed it as a gateway drug. […] Harry Anslinger took the scientifically unsupported idea of marijuana as a violence-inducing drug, connected it to black and Hispanic people, and created a perfect package of terror to sell to the American media and public. By emphasizing the Spanish word marihuana instead of cannabis, he created a strong association between the drug and the newly arrived Mexican immigrants who helped popularize it in the States. He also created a narrative around the idea that cannabis made black people forget their place in society. He pushed the idea that jazz was evil music created by people under the influence of marijuana. […] In the first full year after the Marihuana Tax Act was passed, black people were about three times more likely to be arrested for violating narcotic drug laws than whites. And Mexicans were nearly nine times more likely to be arrested for the same charge.)

— Stop Chanting ‘Send Her Back.’ Citizenship Isn’t Conditional. – JIM GERAGHTY (DIERSEN: According to David Ware (https://www.david-ware.com/blog/2018/01/when-can-the-government-revoke-your-naturalized-citizenship.shtml), naturalized citizenship can be revoked if “within 5 years of naturalization, the U.S. government proved you joined a subversive group. Such groups include Al Qaeda and the Nazi Party, for example” and “within 10 years of naturalization, you refused to testify before a U.S. congressional committee investigating your involvement in an allegedly subversive act. Subversive acts include trying to harm U.S. officials or overthrow the government.” and “you lied or concealed relevant facts in order to obtain U.S. citizenship, your citizenship could be revoked. This is called illegally procuring citizenship.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Tuesday, more than 1,000 pro-illegal immigration activists alongside members of the group “Never Again Action” formed a human wall around government office buildings in Washington, D.C., blocking Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from entering their workspace. Dozens were arrested as the demonstrators formed a human chain replete with chanting and the traditional left-wing moonbat antics against the American government. Apparently, the group’s main aim was to block ICE employees from doing their job unless the federal employees agreed to close down immigration detention centers which are housing thousands of migrant children and adults who have crossed the border into the country. The activists believe these facilities to be “concentration camps.”)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/07/the_best_places_to_retire_tend_conservative.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bankrate.com just published its renowned ranking of the best and worst states for retirement. The categories rated, in order of weightings (in parentheses), include affordability (40%), wellness (25%), culture (15%), weather (15%), and crime (5%). Conspicuously, the top five states all have Republican governors, while most of the bottom states are run by Democrats. Moreover, much of the political machinery of the top states are Republican-run, allowing for coherent policies affecting affordability. The top five, in descending order, are: Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, and Florida. No surprise that Florida scored very well on weather and culture, but the other four states all outperform in areas where policy can have a big impact—affordability, crime and wellness. While Missouri is below par on crime ratings, that was more than offset by its top rating in affordability. Conversely, the bottom states are mostly run by the real deplorables: pandering political guttersnipes who’d take from hard-working, salt of the earth Americans to ensure all manner of freebies for illegal aliens. Indeed, sanctuary states and cities are overrepresented in the liberal laggards.)

My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— DEFUND LUTHERANS FOR OPEN BORDERS NOW! Michelle Malkin rips ‘subversive religious racket’ protesting ICE with taxpayer cash (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Democrat Party takes control of churches. Are you a member of a church? If/when that church formally declares war on America, what will you do?)
https://www.wnd.com/2019/07/defund-lutherans-for-open-borders-now/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you were shocked by the images of the Mexican flag flying over an Aurora, Colorado, immigration detention center this weekend, you’ll be appalled at an even more disgusting spectacle: One of the top promoters of the so-called Lights for Liberty nationwide protests by Trump-hating, ICE-bashing radicals was a nonprofit religious organization known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. As a designated “host,” LIRS played a key role in publicizing, organizing and participating in demonstrations against President Donald Trump’s deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants and their families who have ignored removal orders or skipped out on court hearings. Brazen hatred of cops, Border Patrol and ICE agents were on full display at the open borders protests fronted by LIRS and other left-wing groups, including Code Pink, CASA and CAIR. Marchers echoed the “Close the Concentration Camps” rhetoric of congressional brat pack Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They carried signs declaring “ICE=Gestapo” and “Free the People, Burn the Camps.” It’s not just idle rhetoric. Antifa thug Willem Van Spronsen, armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, attempted to set a Tacoma ICE facility on fire on Saturday before being shot dead. He has been hailed as a “hero” and a “martyr” by fellow “progressive” travelers, while sympathetic mainstream reporters and activists look the other way. The president and CEO of LIRS, Krishanti Vignarajah, is a Sri Lankan refugee and former Michelle Obama policy director who led the Lights for Liberty event in Washington, D.C. She argues that Americans are obligated to open the floodgates at the southern border (since she turned out so great) and vehemently opposes what she calls “militant border enforcement.” To these border-sabotaging radicals, of course, any border enforcement is “militant.” LIRS sounds like just the kind of extremist group you’d expect to be kept afloat by billionaire George Soros’ big bucks. But hold on to your wallets and your American flags, folks: In 2016, LIRS relied on $64.7 million in government subsidies from taxpayers – that’s you and me – to fund a whopping 96.2 percent of its budget. LIRS is one of nine agencies that receives tens of millions of dollars to resettle refugees from around the world. The organization brags that it is “a vital arm of the United States refugee admissions program” that has worked with the State Department to import “over 500,000 refugees” to our country. One of LIRS’ most famous clients? Somalian-born Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, whose immigration, marriage and tax fraud problems I reported on in my column last month. If only a fraction of LIRS clients share Omar’s contempt for our security and self-governance, you can see the trouble we’re in. And that’s just the caseload of one of the nine resettlement giants that together rake in an estimated $1 billion a year. In addition, the Lutheran nonprofit is one of two specially designated groups (the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is the other) that is contracted by the government to provide social services and benefits (including “psycho-educational support” and “low-cost or pro bono immigration legal assistance”) to sponsor families hosting illegal immigrant children.)

THE HILL
— The right to a perfect job match – LIVIA LAM (DIERSEN: What did you do to qualify yourself for better paying jobs? I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/453053-the-right-to-a-perfect-job-match
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is, having a good job means more than just being matched to any job, and pushing workers to upskill won’t solve growing inequality. Even when unemployment peaked at 10.1 percent during the Great Recession, fingers also pointed to worker’s skill sets as falling short against employers’ desire for certain qualifications. But upholding a skills narrative that places the onus of employment on the shoulders of workers not only lacks relevance for those facing the greatest barriers to employment, but also limits mobility and risks exacerbating an already record-high economic inequality. To be clear, job outcomes that matter for workers include educational attainment. Research linking higher levels of education with higher earnings, better health and a longer life is well established. But because an individual’s ability to gain and maintain employment is also dependent on personal and social circumstances, systems that have a stake in both boosting workforce competitiveness and advancing equity must take into consideration these varying experiences.)
