— Americans Trust Police More Than Congress, Study Finds – Heather Murphy
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/20/us/trust-congress-military-police.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Americans trust police officers, military leaders and local public officials more than members of Congress, tech leaders and journalists, according to a study published by the Pew Research Center on Thursday. . .Trust in journalists varied depending on the question and the respondent’s political affiliation. Roughly half of Americans said journalists care about people like them, whereas nearly as many — 46 percent — said journalists rarely care. Republicans’ belief that journalists would fairly cover all sides of an issue (31 percent) was dramatically lower than Democrats’ (74 percent). Two-thirds of Americans think that journalists behave unethically some or most of the time.)

— AUGUST 24, 2003 FLASHBACK: The New Couples Next Door, Gay and Straight – Kate Zernike (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote LGBTQ activity. According to City-Data at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wheaton-Illinois.html, for Wheaton: “Likely homosexual households (counted as self-reported same-sex unmarried-partner households) Lesbian couples: 0.2% of all households Gay men: 0.2% of all households” Those who promote LGBTQ activity in Wheaton stress “OneWheaton.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OneWheaton)
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/24/us/the-new-couples-next-door-gay-and-straight.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Demich and Kevin Hengst, the couple across the street, are not actually married. Still, in the seven years they have lived in this Chicago suburb they have become like the Buckinghams, the Therrons, the Siconolfis — just another young family in the neighborhood, socializing porch to porch on summer evenings. Choosing the suburbs over the city, Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst feared they would be The Gay Couple. But even in Wheaton — the home of an evangelical Christian college that until last year prohibited drinking and dancing, the seat of a reliably Republican county — they have found plenty of company. Sixty gay men and lesbians turned out for a wine-tasting a few weeks ago. About 30 played softball at a local park on a recent Saturday. . .In Wheaton, Mr. Demich, 42, said he liked the diversity. ”Of families,” he explained, after a brief pause. ”As opposed to city culture, where everything is around gay life, gay events. That’s not really the way America lives.” When he and Mr. Hengst decided to move to the suburbs, they told their real estate agent, ”Anything but Wheaton,” knowing its conservative reputation. Then they found the perfect house. They hung out a Gay Pride flag, and the neighbors invited them to a block party. The couple said they would bring fruit salad. ”Everyone broke out laughing,” Mr. Weinberg, a contractor, recalled. ”They were making fun of it, which went over well.” Neighborhood children have confronted the couple with questions: Do you two sleep together? Do you have wives? Their parents cringe, but also say they consider themselves, and their children, fortunate. ”Growing up in a good Catholic family, I didn’t even know about anything like this,” Ms. Weinberg said. ”It wasn’t thrown in front of me. These kids, if they don’t see it now, they’re going to see it soon. Living on a block like this is more the real world.” A few blocks over the train tracks, Ladd McClurg and Brad Ogilvie had similar concerns about moving to Wheaton when Mr. Ogilvie accepted a job in town. Mr. McClurg, who grew up in the Mormon faith, being taught that gays were sinners, said he arrived with ”almost a visceral disdain” for Wheaton’s many churches and their members. ”I learned to discover they’re not all bigoted,” Mr. McClurg said. ”There are a lot more variations on the middle out here than I was willing to give credit for.” Still, gays here say they step carefully to avoid causing offense. Betty Burns and Lisa Rechkemmer say they would never hold hands or hang out a pride flag for fear of upsetting their good relations with the neighbors. Mr. Ogilvie and Mr. McClurg display the flag, but resist the urge to hold hands unless they visit the city. One lesbian in Wheaton talked about how accepting her neighbors were, but did not want to be identified by name because she feared the kind of hate calls she and her partner received when they moved in two years ago. Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst had to go to six or seven churches before they found one that did not preach that homosexuality is a sin. The church they chose, St. Paul Lutheran, had declared itself ”open and affirming” to gays five years ago, but only after a struggle. The decision was prompted not by gay parishioners — there were none at the time — but by a young man who had been baptized and confirmed in the church who died of AIDS. ”It lifted the issue,” said Marianne Avery, a member of the church council that debated the change. ”It was, ‘This is our children, this is not about letting someone in.’ ” Still, a handful of members left. ”What if they show up in drag?” the Rev. Melody Eastman, the pastor, recalled one woman asking.)

https://thesouthern.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/union-county-democratic-party-withdraws-legal-action-over-county-board/article_99de7213-eda0-58fd-906c-ff441241f069.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement to The Southern on Thursday, Union County Democratic Party Chair Teresa Vincent said that the county’s legal counsel has since provided her the necessary documentation establishing Klingemann’s affiliation to the Democratic Party. Klingemann, a private attorney in Marion who previously worked as an assistant state’s attorney with Edmonds, had not voted in primary elections, and was not active in party politics. The board confirmed his appointment by a 3-2 vote along party lines, with Republicans voting in favor of his confirmation and Democrats against. Union County Board Chairman Max Miller previously said that Klingemann stated to him during the interview process that he was a Democrat, which he said satisfied the party affiliation requirement under the law. But Vincent argued that Klingemann’s record was not sufficient to establish him as a Democrat. She pointed to a section of the law that specifically speaks to the replacement of state senators and representatives and defines party affiliation as follows: A person is a member of a party for 23 months after signing a petition for a candidate’s partisan candidacy for office, signing a petition joining a particular party, pulling a partisan primary ballot, running for partisan office or otherwise holding a partisan position such as state central committeeperson.)

RUSS STEWART
— BAIL-OUTS PROLIFERATE AMONG DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEEMEN
http://www.russstewart.com/articles/2019/09-11-19.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here is a multiple-choice question for anyone who is still paying attention. A Chicago Democratic ward committeeman is (a) at the top of the political food chain, (b) at the bottom of the political food chain, (c) holds a non-paying post that is inconsequential, and/or (d) believes it’s a steppingstone to glory and power. Anybody who is now or has been a committeeman would answer (b) and (c). Anybody who aspires to and is running for committeeman in 2020 would answer (a) and (d). And everybody else, including this columnist, would give a resounding (c). After all, the sitting Democratic committeemen of the 1st, 39th, 40th, 41st, 45th and 49th wards, who were elected in 2016, lost 2019 bids to be elected or re-elected alderman, and the 50th Ward committeeman and the former 32nd Ward committeeman lost 2018 state senator and county commissioner races. Robert Murphy (39th) and Pat O’Connor (40th) lost the April 2 aldermanic runoff with, respectively, 44.1 and 46.2 percent. Proco Joe Moreno (1st), Tim Heneghan (41st), John Arena (45th) and Joe Moore (49th) lost the Feb. 26 primary with, respectively, 38.8, 29.7, 36.2 and 36.6 percent. And Ira Silverstein (50th) lost his Illinois 8th Senate District seat with 29.9 percent and John Fritchey (32nd) lost with 44.6 percent. They would surely answer the above question with a (b) and (c).)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/the-summer-dip-in-illegal-immigration-is-temporary-so-trump-officials-ought-to-stop-celebrating
— ‘Transparency’ in journalism doesn’t exist, but it could (DIERSEN: Unlike virtually all journalists, I am transparent. I fully disclose that I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, and I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, federal retiree, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to destroy me. They use the aforesaid to paint me as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, someone who harasses people, and even worse things. They talk and act like they work for those who dominate the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I should write a book about them. Better yet, I should sue them.)

THE HILL
— How important is candidate age? – MARK MELLMAN (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 70. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/460812-mellman-how-important-is-candidate-age
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Candidates are not simply bundles of age, race and résumé. They have issue positions and priorities, personality traits and personal stories, that weren’t measured in these conjoint experiments. We don’t know how much age matters compared to those factors. More broadly, moving from the generic to the specific is not always clear cut. In our example, while 70 may be too old, not all 70-year olds are too old. That’s exactly what a new CBS YouGov poll on candidate age tells us. In response to questions specific to each candidate, just 37 percent said Sanders was “too old” to be president, 31 percent said Biden was and only 5 percent believed Warren is too old to be president. Polls seem to tell us that age is important. But failure to ask the right questions, in the right ways, can lead analysts and strategists astray.)

— One Argument for Radical Income Transparency Our research suggests that disagreements about government spending may be partly based on misperceptions about how much others make – Oliver Hauser and Michael Norton (DIERSEN: My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/one-argument-for-radical-income-transparency-11568167323
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How much do people actually know about the income and wealth of people who live around them? And how does what they think they know skew the way they think about government taxes and spending? Recent research we conducted suggests that the answer to those two questions are: Not much and a lot. An emerging body of research suggests that citizens’ preferences for spending on public goods—from social programs to health care to infrastructure—are based in part about who they believe contributes and benefits. However, we discovered that many people are unaware of the true extent of inequality where they live. And in some cases, their beliefs are dramatically different than reality.)

My retirement income is far less because my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

My wife and I have never burdened, that is, we have never sent any child to any school in Wheaton, Milton Township, or DuPage County, nor have we ever attended any school in Wheaton, Milton Township, or DuPage County. Just the opposite, we have paid big real estate taxes to the aforesaid schools since 1978.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I made a promise to myself early in my career. If my job ever became so unbearable that I got stomach cramps at just the thought of walking into the office, it was time to quit. But what if staying in your crummy job is the only way to have tens of thousands of dollars in student debt forgiven? This is the issue vexing a reader, who asked me during a recent online discussion: Should I stay or should I go? “I’m a federal employee with five years left to loan forgiveness,” the person wrote. “I work in a toxic office and have been trying for several years to find a job in a different agency. I was recently offered a two-year term position that would be in a new practice area with supervisory responsibility and a fairly significant pay raise. But I would lose the ‘golden handcuffs’ of virtually guaranteed employment and risk losing six-figure loan forgiveness if I don’t find a permanent position during the two years. Is it worth it?”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: China effectively expelled a Wall Street Journal reporter from the country, one month after the newspaper published a report detailing allegations that a cousin of Chinese leader Xi Jinping was involved in high-stakes gambling and potential money laundering in Australia. Chinese authorities told the Journal on Friday it would not renew press credentials for Chun Han Wong, a Singapore national who has covered Chinese politics out of the paper’s Beijing bureau since 2014. Those credentials expired Friday. China sometimes withholds or refuses visas to punish international news organizations for what the ruling Communist Party perceives as unfavorable coverage. But the decision amounted to the first time in recent memory that the Chinese government has effectively turfed out a reporter from the Journal, a publication generally known for incisive but evenhanded coverage of the country.)

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/poll-public-backs-criticism-of-journalists-trumps-attacks-appropriate
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the latest sign that major American media outlets are losing the public’s support, a majority believe it is appropriate for politicians to criticize reporters and hold them to the same scrutiny as those they cover. A new Rasmussen Reports survey also said most voters believe the average journalist is liberal, and few are conservative. The survey is an indictment of the media at a time when liberal outlets such as CNN and the New York Times are stepping up their attack on President Trump and congressional Republicans. The outlets are also complaining about Trump’s criticism of them and called out Trump surrogates who are using social media to point out the bias of journalists. But, said Rasmussen, voters believe that reporters are fair game for criticism. The survey analysis said 61% of likely U.S. voters think reporters at major news organizations like CNN, Fox News, and the New York Times are public figures who deserve scrutiny. Some 19% disagree. Significantly, 51% said “it is appropriate for elected officials to criticize specific reporters and news organizations,” Rasmussen reported in the survey shared with Secrets before its release. Another 39% view the criticism as a threat to freedom of the press. That is slightly higher than the 48% who said criticism from politicians was OK back in February 2017 when Trump began singling out news organizations that were attacking him. And the public continues to view journalists as liberal. The survey said 47% believe the typical reporter is more liberal than they are. Just 19% of voters believe reporters are more conservative than they are.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the past two years, the movement to divide the state of Illinois into two states — Cook County in one, the other 101 counties in the other — has been gaining support. In February, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker was pursuing an agenda for Illinois that included new tax and abortion policies, Halbrook refiled a resolution in the state legislature, HR 101, in which he and six co-sponsors asked the U.S. Congress to recognize Chicago as the 51st state. “I hear it a lot from my constituents, that we need to be separate from Chicago,” Halbrook says. “I thought yep, this is what we need to do.” The resolution, which could be dismissed as simple political maneuvering — plays big at home, but has scant chance of seeing daylight in the legislature — is also backed by several grassroots groups agitating for separation. One of them, Illinois Separation, founded by Collin Cliburn, of Athens, has 24,000 followers on Facebook, and growing. Cliburn is also holding events at venues from wineries and gun shops to community centers around the state through August and September to capitalize on the cause’s momentum.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Pritzker vows to ‘root’ out parents scamming system for college financial aid for their kids: ‘Shame on you’ “If people are defrauding the system, these wealthy parents are literally committing fraud here,” the governor said. “We need to go find them, root it out and make sure that those dollars go to the right people.” – Tina Sfondeles (DIERSEN: How much debt did/could your parents take on to pay for your college expenses? I never expected my outstanding parents to take on any debt to pay for my college expenses. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, he was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, he never attended college, he worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and he did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line Chevy. My mother never attended high school.)

— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: ‘She won’t take my calls’  Since taking office May 20, Lightfoot has not returned Wilson’s calls, he said. Instead, Lightfoot sent him a text saying she’s ‘too busy running the city to call me back.’ (DIERSEN: In politics, to not return a constituent’s phone call is to dump that constituent. I should write a book about past and present politicians a) who have represented me at the federal, state, county, township, and local levels and b) who have not returned my phone calls.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-college-financial-aid-guardianship-loophole-and-the-woman-who-thought-it-up-11564595984
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The college consultant who developed a strategy to help wealthy clients access scholarships designed for the poor said she came up with the idea after seeing how much debt parents were taking on to send their children to college. Lora Georgieva, owner of a consulting company called Destination College, said she has been explaining to families for the past two years that if they legally transferred the guardianship of their college-bound children to a friend or family member, the teens would be considered independent for the purposes of financial aid. That means they wouldn’t have to declare their parents’ income or assets, making it possible for them to collect state, federal and college scholarships reserved for students from poor families. The strategy was the topic of a Page One article Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Georgieva hadn’t responded to requests for comment for that article, but subsequently spoke Tuesday night with a Journal reporter about her operation. The U.S. Education Department condemned Ms. Georgieva’s actions and said it was moving to stop them.)

BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE
— Bushwick rezoning opponents look beyond Brooklyn for strategies – Paul Stremple
https://brooklyneagle.com/articles/2019/07/29/bushwick-rezoning-opponents-look-beyond-brooklyn-for-strategies/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Community activists in Bushwick are pushing for a complete shutdown of engagement between their local representatives and the Department of City Planning, hoping to stop a planned rezoning of their neighborhood from taking shape. Mi Casa No Es Su Casa, an anti-gentrification group, has started a petition for the purpose, which they say has garnered more than 350 signatures. Previously, the group has shut down community board meetings, disrupted city feedback sessions and projected anti-gentrification and anti-rezoning slogans across swaths of Brooklyn. Now, they’re looking to keep fighting the process, however they can. The group hosted a town hall inside a Bushwick church on Sunday to discuss methods of resistance with residents and community leaders from across the five boroughs. Roughly 30 attendees listened as a panel of speakers addressed both the specific rezoning of Bushwick and the greater processes of rezoning, displacement and gentrification at work in New York City.)

— Recent surveys agree that more than one-third of all college students suffer at times from bouts of food insecurity. The rate is far higher for students with an extra risk factor: belonging to a racial minority, having a single parent or being the first in their family to attend college, for example. . .A recent study by the Government Accountability Office says only 29% of those now in college are “traditional students,” who enroll right out of high school and depend on their parents for support. The rest, especially in community colleges, can be older, and financially fragile — often with children of their own. – Cokie Roberts and Steven V. Roberts
