U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT
— Illinois Attorney General Convenes Summit on Trump Orders  Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has convened legal and civil rights organizations in the wake of what she calls “troubling” executive orders issued by President Donald Trump. – AP  (DIERSEN: What do Trump, Pence, Bost, Davis, Hultgren, Kinzinger, LaHood, Roskam, Shimkus, Rauner, Sanguinetti, Radogno, Durkin, Schneider, DeMonte, and Porter have to say about this?)
https://www.usnews.com/news/illinois/articles/2017-02-23/illinois-attorney-general-convenes-summit-on-trump-orders
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Groups attending Thursday’s summit include Arab American Family Services, the Chicago Urban League and Lambda Legal. Group leaders say they fear escalating hate crimes. Madigan says orders dealing with immigration threaten America’s “history of inclusion and diversity.” She says that includes a temporary ban on travel from seven predominantly-Muslim countries. The four-term Democrat supported lawsuits against the ban. The ban was blocked in court, but Trump says he’s revising it. On Thursday, Madigan condemned the Trump administration’s rollback of public school bathroom requirements for transgender students. Madigan says she backs a proposal that will strengthen Illinois’ hate crime laws.)

 

WHITE HOUSE
— President Trump Speaks at CPAC
https://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2017/02/23/president-trump-speaks-cpac
(FROM THE ANNOUNCEMENT: President Donald J. Trump will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, February 24. The President will address the annual meeting of the conservative movement at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Maryland, at 10:00 AM. CPAC is a gathering of conservative activists from all across the country who meet to learn from each other, receive training in activism and campaign management, and hear from prominent conservative leaders. The conference began in 1974, when then-Governor Ronald Reagan described his vision of America as a “city upon a hill” for the first time. To date, three Presidents have addressed CPAC. President Trump will be the fourth. President Trump has addressed CPAC several times in the past, speaking to the gathering in 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015. Heading into the conference, President Trump has already achieved many important accomplishments in his first month in office. Whether it is jumpstarting job creation, restoring public safety, slashing harmful regulations, or keeping his promise to defend the Constitution, conservatives have much to be excited about heading into Friday’s message from the President. In addition to the President, Vice President Mike Pence will speak at the conference tonight, February 23, at 7:30 PM. Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon spoke to the conference this afternoon.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/channel-7s-mark-giangreco-suspended-for-anti-trump-voter-tweet/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: WLS-Channel 7 sports anchor Mark Giangreco has been suspended without pay for a tweet calling President Donald Trump a “cartoon lunatic” elected by “a country of simpletons,” according to an online report. The TV station handed Giangreco a “multi-week suspension” without pay, according to media blogger Robert Feder. “Mark Giangreco’s Twitter comments are not in line with ABC 7 Chicago’s non-partisan editorial standards. We’ve reviewed the matter and are taking the appropriate action,” the station told Feder in written statement. Giangreco appeared on the station’s 5 p.m. newscast on Thursday, after word of his suspension was reported. The sportscaster drew his bosses’ ire when he responded to a tweet from a Toronto Star sports columnist who wrote “Donald Trump: a hateful ignorant corrupt simpleton supported by 87% of Republicans.” Giangreco countered with a tweet since deleted: “So obvious, so disturbing. America exposed as a country full of simpletons who allowed this cartoon lunatic to be ‘elected.’” Giangreco is ABC 7’s “Chicago sports director and primary sports anchor/reporter for the Number One rated 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts,” according to a biography on the station’s web site. “Giangreco has earned a reputation for being a sports anchor that even non-sports fans enjoy watching, delivering sports with humor, wit and an interesting spin on the day’s sports news,” according to the bio. ” He joined the station in 1994 after a stint at WMAQ-TV. Giangreco is the brother of Pete Giangreco a leading Chicago-based Democratic political consultant whose clients have included Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel and Tammy Duckworth.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why did changing demographics not lead to electoral destiny for Democrats? Our report out this month provides several answers, starting with the fact that demographic change isn’t evenly dispersed. In our system of place-based government, unless millennials move to the rural South or the growing Latino population settles in equal measure across the Rust Belt, demography will take a long time. Take the U.S. House. Going into the 2016 cycle, the 159 House districts deemed safely Democratic by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report are already majority-minority. (The average is 45 percent white.) The 90 swing districts are 70 percent white — much closer to the breakdown in safe Republican districts, which number 186 and are 75 percent white on average.)
