— Trump, Republicans plan to target benefits and job security for federal workers – Lisa Rein  (DIERSEN: According to this article, there are about 2.1 million civilian federal employees.  From what I see,  virtually all of them are Democrats.  Political affiliation discrimination is rampant in the federal government.  What if Trump decided to make the federal government “look like America.” What if he said that he is going to fire about 1,050,000 federal employees and replace them with Republicans?  I would be more than happy to help him with that.  On the other hand, 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.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/politics/ct-trump-federal-workers-20161121-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress are drawing up plans to take on the government bureaucracy they have long railed against, by eroding job protections and grinding down benefits that federal workers have received for a generation. Hiring freezes, an end to automatic raises, a green light to fire poor performers, a ban on union business on the government’s dime and less generous pensions – these are the contours of the blueprint emerging under Republican control of Washington in January. These changes were once unthinkable to federal employees, their unions and their supporters in Congress. But Trump’s election as an outsider promising to shake up a system he told voters is awash in “waste, fraud and abuse” has conservatives optimistic that they could do now what Republicans have been unable to do in the 133 years since the civil service was created. “You have the country moving to the right and being much more anti-Washington than it was,” said former House speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., a leading Trump adviser who serves on the president-elect’s transition team. “We’re going to have to get the country to understand how big the problem is, the human costs of it and why it’s absolutely essential to reform,” said Gingrich, who urged Trump to shrink big government and overhaul the “job-for-life” guarantee of federal work. Gingrich predicted that Stephen Bannon, a former Breitbart News chief who helped steer Trump’s campaign and is now one of his most influential advisers, would lead the effort. “It’s a big, big project,” he said. The project aligns with Bannon’s long-stated warnings about the corrupting influence of government and a capital city rampant with “crony capitalism.” Breitbart headlines also provide a possible insight into his views, with federal employees described as overpaid, too numerous and a “privileged class.” “Number of Government Employees Now Surpasses Manufacturing Jobs by 9,977,000,” the website proclaimed in November. There are 2.1 million federal civilian employees. Top Republicans on Capitol Hill say their first priority will be making it easier to fire employees regarded as incompetent or who break the rules. “It’s nearly impossible to fire somebody,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “When the overwhelming majority do a good job and the one bad apple is there viewing pornography, I want people to be held accountable.” Chaffetz said he plans to push through wholesale changes to the generous retirement benefits that federal workers receive, by shifting to a market-driven, 401(k)-style plan for new employees.)

— Georgia lawmaker withdraws bill to restrict burqas – Ralph Ellis (DIERSEN: If you are against Ku Klux Klan hoods in America, you should be against burqas in America.)
http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/17/us/burqa-ban-bill-georgia-trnd/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Georgia legislator said Thursday he will withdraw a bill that would have banned Muslim women from wearing burqas or veils while driving or when their driver’s license photos are taken. State Rep. Jason Spencer, on his official Facebook page, cited “the visceral reaction” created by the proposed legislation as his reason for withdrawing it. “While this bill does not contain language that specifically targets any group, I am mindful of the perception that it has created. My objective was to address radical elements that could pose a threat to public safety,” wrote Spencer. The bill was heavily criticized. Sheik Salahadin Wazir, host of the American Muslim Weekly Show, told CNN’s “New Day” that the bill would only help radicals by discriminating against Muslim women. “We should not aid and give to the radicals a gift,” he said. Spencer wanted to amend the state’s anti-masking statute, which was intended to ban Ku Klux Klan hoods and robes, and extend it to burqas, the full-body garment that many Muslim women wear. Spencer’s bill adds the word “she” and specifies that public property include public roads and highways. The bill also says public identification cards, including driver’s licenses, should not be issued to any person if his or her face is concealed. Spencer said the bill would have been able to “withstand legal scrutiny, but not political scrutiny.”)

NEW YORK TIMES
— What’s Your Ideal Community? The Answer Is Political – Emily Badger
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/04/upshot/whats-your-ideal-community-the-answer-is-political.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The American political map that has emerged over the last half-century, with blue cities and red beyond, is a product of both the ideological realignment of the two parties and geographic sorting among voters. It also raises a fascinating question about how our politics are shaped by where we live. Is it simply that people who are already liberal choose dense urban environments and conservatives choose more suburban living? Or do these places influence how we feel about government — and each other — in ways that make us more liberal or conservative? Political scientists, fortunately, cannot randomly assign people to cities, suburbs or rural outposts and then wait to see if their politics adapt. But their theories of why density might matter for partisanship add a provocative layer to how we think about the differences among us that are more often defined in an election year by education, income or race. A large Pew survey two years ago of American political life found that self-described liberals overwhelmingly said they’d prefer to live where the homes are smaller and closer together but where the amenities are within walking distance. Conservatives chose the opposite trade-off: big homes, spaced farther apart, but with schools and restaurants miles away. The question got at a pattern underlying politics today: Beyond our disagreements about taxes, welfare or health care, partisans also fundamentally favor different kinds of places.)

— A Trump-Clinton donor divide: Home values – DENNIS RODKIN  (FROM THE ARTICLE: Among Clinton donors here, the median home value is just under $547,000, about 29 percent higher than the $425,000 median value of Trump donors’ homes.  Are Cinton donors limousine liberals?  SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limousine_liberal)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/realestate/20161108/CRED0701/161109860/a-trump-clinton-donor-divide-home-values
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there are Clinton victory parties tonight in Chicago, they’re likely to be in nicer homes than celebrations for a Trump win. The median home value for a Chicago-area donor to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign is almost one-third higher than the median for donors to Republican Donald Trump, according to research from the University of Chicago. Among Clinton donors here, the median home value is just under $547,000, about 29 percent higher than the $425,000 median value of Trump donors’ homes, according to Tania Diaz Bazan, a researcher and writer at the Stigler Center of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Diaz Bazan compiled the Chicago figures exclusively yesterday for Crain’s on the eve of today’s election. “Wealthier donors prefer Hillary Clinton,” Diaz Bazan said. Home value, she noted, “is a proxy for wealth,” though of course a home may not be the only asset a donor may have. “What we see at least is that Clinton donors prefer living in expensive houses more than Trump donors,” she said. In a state that leans heavily toward Clinton, Diaz Bazan had far more data on donors to the Democratic candidate. Her database included 10,304 Chicago-area Clinton donors and just 1,500 for Trump. But she said the Trump data was enough to be reliable and that the results “follow the same pattern as the national data.”)

— Election stressing you out? Try logging off Facebook, Twitter – Aaron Blake  (DIERSEN: Operatives and dupes for my critics/opponents promote “Ignorance Is Bliss” and they hint/imply/argue/shout a) that they work for those who have the most religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois and b) that if you need to know anything, that they will tell you.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161030/business/161039980/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A majority of both Republicans and Democrats say the 2016 election is a significant source of stress for them right now, according to a recent American Psychological Association poll. They should probably log off Facebook and Twitter. A new survey from the Pew Research Center suggests — in a result that will surprise precisely zero political reporters who tweet — that people don’t think social media are a particularly great form of political discourse. Full 59 percent of social media users say interacting with people they disagree with is more “stressful and frustrating,” while 35 percent say it’s more “interesting and informative.” And by an even more lopsided 64-29 margin, they say they actually find they have less in common with people they disagree rather than say they find more in common. These frustrations are — wait for it — bipartisan. Many more social media users also say the discussions there are less respectful, less civil and less policy-focused than say they are more respectful, civil and policy-focused. And about half (49 percent) say that they are angrier than other forums, while just 6 percent say they’re less angry. It’s not hard to look at these numbers and conclude that social media are playing a part when it comes to our increasing polarization in the United States. The numbers don’t prove it directly, but it does seem that many Americans find talking politics on Facebook and Twitter, at least, to be an experience that leaves them with less regard for the other side. What’s interesting about social media is that it actually exposes people to those alternate views in a way their personal lives may not. Just 23 percent of Facebook users and 17 percent of Twitter users say they mostly follow people with similar political views to their own. That might be more they can say for their personal lives, in which their friends and neighbors are increasingly likely to be like-minded, thanks to something political scientists call “sorting.” But that doesn’t mean people are going to like what those they disagree with are saying. In fact, if nothing else, this survey suggests it might be one of the worst ways to have a reasoned political discussion. And yet, it’s probably one of the few forms of real political dialogue many people are having.)

http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/214432502-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: HUNTSVILLE, Ala.  An Alabama A&M University student decided to turn his on-campus dorm room into the headquarters of his donation-based food pantry.  “I noticed that there were some students that said they were going to bed hungry,” said Justin Franks. “So, I thought about it and said, ‘What can I give back to my community?'” Franks said he started the pantry on just $45. “I started with pretty much just noodles and Capri Suns and I had a few household products like tissue and water.” It’s now packed with items such as fruit juices, coups, canned food items, chips and instant noodles. Franks posted his venture on Facebook, and the story has since been shared hundreds of times. “I didn’t think it would get shared that much, but people really cared about our students and Alabama A&M University.” So far, Franks has helped nearly 100 students. Those in need are able to get up to three items twice a week. “To me, it just makes me feel like I’m blessing someone,” he said. “I’m a religious person and I feel like I can bless a student. Some nights, students will be like ‘Man, I really appreciate this because I didn’t have anything to eat.'”)

— Why Kirk wasn’t always facing camera in debate – Bernard Schoenburg
http://www.sj-r.com/opinion/20161029/bernard-schoenburg-why-kirk-wasnt-always-facing-camera-in-debate
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If GOP U.S. Sen. MARK KIRK, R-Ill., wasn’t always looking at the camera in the televised Springfield debate with U.S. Rep. TAMMY DUCKWORTH last week, well, there is an explanation. Due to his 2012 stroke, spokeswoman ELENI DEMERTZIS said, Kirk has lost complete vision in his left eye. At Sangamon Auditorium at the University of Illinois Springfield, Kirk and Duckworth were at a table in the middle of the stage, and questioners, including myself, were at a table on stage to their left. Kirk often was looking in our direction, but had to turn far enough to use his right eye to do so. The moment of the debate that got the most attention was when Duckworth talked about her family’s military history dating back to the Revolutionary War, and Kirk said, “I’d forgotten that your parents came all the way from Thailand to fight for George Washington.” After a bit of silence, and given the chance to respond, Duckworth said that it was her father’s side of the family whose service went back to the American revolution. I later asked for some family details, and MATT McGRATH, spokesman for Duckworth, said Duckworth’s father, FRANK, was American, and served in both the Marine Corps and Army. He worked in international development and met Duckworth’s mother, LAMAI, who is Thai of Chinese descent, in Thailand. Duckworth was born in Bangkok. Her father died in 2005, and her mother became a U.S. citizen in 1993, and lives with Duckworth, her husband BRYAN and their young daughter, in Hoffman Estates. Kirk apologized for his debate comment about Duckworth’s family, tweeting: “Sincere apologies to an American hero, Tammy Duckworth, and gratitude for her family’s service.” Duckworth responded on Twitter: “Thanks, Sen. Kirk. Let’s honor my family’s service — and your own — by sticking to the issues for the final week. See you Friday in Chicago.”  The candidates are scheduled to debate at 7 p.m. Friday on WLS-TV—ABC7 in Chicago.)

DUQUON EVENING CALL
— Why America is no longer a white, Christian nation  Based on research from Robert P. Jones, the author of “The End of White Christian America,” The Atlantic published a video showing how there’s been a decline in white Christians. – Herb Scribner  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, America is more and more and more anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://www.duquoin.com/news/20161030/video-why-america-is-no-longer-white-christian-nation
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The United States may no longer be a white, Christian country. Based on research from Robert P. Jones, author of “The End of White Christian America,” The Atlantic published a video that shows how there’s been a decline in Americans who identify as white Christians in the last decade. His research shows that while 67 percent of Americans 65 years old or older identify as white Christians, only about 29 percent of people 18 to 29 feel the same. More so, Jones’ research shows that about 1 in 4 Americans today identify as religiously unaffiliated, a significant jump from the 1 in 10 who felt the same in the ’90s. According to Jones, Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential run demonstrates how the lack of Christians have affected our nation. Though Romney had a significant amount of white evangelicals voting for him, it wasn’t enough to put him over the top so he could win the presidency. Jones said it was because there had been a decline over the years in that religious group who would have voted for him. But, the author pontificates that if Romney ran in 2004, there would have been enough white Christians in the country that could have secured him the White House. This trend has created something of a backlash, as Americans struggle to figure out their identity. Is America a Christian nation as we’ve often thought, or is it a country defined by its diversity? “People fight like that when they are losing a sense of place, a sense of belonging, and a sense of the country that they understand and love,” Jones said. “How do they re-engage in public life when they can’t be the majority?”)

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.)
