http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20161114/business/311149914/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some police departments are relaxing age-old standards for accepting recruits. The changes are designed to deal with decreased interest in a job that offers low pay, rigorous physical demands and the possibility of death, all while under public scrutiny. There’s also the need to lure more minorities. The Connecticut State Police is among the agencies wrestling with diversity.)

— TRUMP SUPPORTER BEATEN ON WEST SIDE EXPLAINS WHY HE DIDN’T FIGHT BACK – Chuck Goudie and Christine Tresse  (DIERSEN: To avoid being harmed by Clinton supporters, Trump supporters may want avoid precincts, townships/wards, and counties where lots of people voted for Clinton.  In the interest of full disclosure, about 56% of those in my precinct (on average about one person per residence), 53% in Milton Township, and 53% in DuPage County who voted for U.S. President voted for Clinton.  I could point out homes in my precinct in which one or more of the residents are filled with hatred of not only Trump, but of all those like me who share his demographics.)
http://abc7chicago.com/news/trump-supporter-beaten-on-west-side-explains-why-he-didnt-fight-back/1607016/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Donald Trump supporter who was beaten by a mob of teenagers in a Chicago intersection said he didn’t fight back for a reason. Victim David Wilcox retreated and curled up into a ball, but not because he was afraid of being hurt. He told the I-Team that he was terrified of fighting back and going to prison where he has spent many years of his adult life. The video of the beating was seen by millions around the world, but this is the first time we learn the back story. After the incident, Wilcox told the public: “I’m not a violent person. I haven’t been in a long time.” On Monday, he explained to the I-Team what he meant. Wilcox said he hasn’t been violent since what happened in Chicago’s Sauganash neighborhood in August 1986, the last time Wilcox was attacked on a public street. He was 20 years old at the time and outside a house party on Kenneth Avenue, Wilcox said he and his 16-year-old pregnant girlfriend were attacked by several men he’d been feuding with. “He ran up on me with a baseball bat and beat up on me” Wilcox told the I-Team on Monday. “I stabbed the guy and he died…They were aggressors. They started the fight.” Wilcox was convicted of murder and sent to Stateville prison after he was sentenced to 20 years. He served nearly seven-and-a-half years after an appeal dropped the charge to manslaughter. “I’d rather get stabbed and die than go back to prison,” Wilcox said Monday. For Wilcox, it wasn’t just one experience in prison that has him fearful of being locked up again. According to Illinois Department of Corrections officials, he’s been in state prison nine times in the past 30 years. His was arrested for retail theft and, in 2013, faced a marijuana charge in Cook County. When last week’s traffic altercation grew into a Trump-bashing incident, Wilcox defended himself by retreating and later explained the incident just as he explained the 1986 killing he was involved in. “She was the first one who threw a punch,” Wilcox said. As the punches landed, Wilcox was dazed because he had prayed to god to never put him in a violent situation again. And if those who beat him last week are ever arrested, his hope for their punishment comes from experience: “I’m gonna be at every court date and I’m gonna make sure I can do everything I can to where they get locked up,” Wilcox said. He would like to see them locked up in the kind of place where Wilcox says he was — in Stateville, where in the 1980s he says white inmates were unwelcome guests, adding that he has PTSD from his days there. None of this changes the fact that Wilcox was the victim of an angry crowd. But it does explain why he didn’t fight back.)

(CCI Editor Mary Anne Hackett’s note: I called on Cardinal-Elect Cupich to put a stop to this overt racism from a professor of a Catholic University in Chicago.  Filling the minds of young college students with such lies about our history,  destroys their love of America and patriotism which makes them unfit to live in a civil society and endangers the lives of people who may disagree with them.  This is a perfect opportunity to put social justice to work!)

http://www.aim.org/on-target-blog/liberal-media-unsure-on-how-to-report-on-trumps-pledge-of-not-taking-presidential-salary/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The liberal media does not know what to say about Donald Trump’s plan to fulfill his campaign pledge to not take a presidential salary of about $400,000, which would make him the third president to do so, in the footsteps of Herbert Hoover and John F. Kennedy. Huffington Post could only point out that Trump will be fulfilling a campaign pledge. USA Today insinuated that Trump’s campaign pledge derived from the Republicans’ ire towards Obama and Obama’s golfing trips.  CBS News could only say the following: “From the very beginning, Trump has promised that he’d set businesses concerns aside if he was elected. In fact, he told “Face The Nation” moderator John Dickerson last October that he’s been “phasing out” his role throughout his campaign.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— How to Reform the Civil Service – Bruce Walker  (DIERSEN: Should I write a book about Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, and RINOs in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who are overjoyed that the federal government wasted my career and forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old?)
http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2016/11/how_to_reform_the_civil_service.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Thomas Lifson has correctly observed that reforming the Civil Service System ought to be a high priority for President-Elect Trump and the new Republican Congress. We need to understand why the Civil Service System first created as a reform in how the federal government operated. “To the victors go the spoils” was the way Andrew Jackson put it almost 200 years ago. Jackson expressed the view that the president has the right – legal and moral – to throw out government employees and replace them with cronies. The size of the federal government was proportionately much smaller then than today, and those political allies rewarded with jobs to deliver the mail or to collect tariffs seemed innocuous enough, at least until President Garfield was assassinated by a disgruntled federal office seeker in 1881.  The Pendleton Act of 1883 created a system in which those who sought federal jobs, except for a layer of high-level executives, had to pass an objective hiring system. The second part of Civil Service System reforms was to create protections that made it difficult – really, almost impossible – for any Civil Service System employee ever to lose his job.  This is the heart of the problem.  Presidents can fill the upper echelon of federal agencies with whomever they want (except for the few who require Senate confirmation), and presidents can fire these people easily enough as well.  But no one – not even these high-level political appointees – can fire anyone. Ironically, the problems with the spoils system had nothing to do with firing federal employees, but only with hiring federal employees.  The right reform is simple enough: allow the president to fire any federal employee in the Executive Branch at will, but keep the system in place only for hiring through the Civil Service System. A president would then have the power to fire lazy, dishonest, rude, or unnecessary federal employees, but he could have no power to fill those positions he caused by firing bad federal employees with his supporters or partisans.  So if a federal employee took the Fifth Amendment in an investigation of federal malfeasance, something that Thomas Lifson correctly noted was intolerable, the next day, that employee could be told, “You can either refuse to answer questions or keep your federal job, but not both.” If President Trump brought in business experts to analyze federal operations and detect waste and inefficiency, then President Trump could do what he did so often in his reality television show and fire those who are unnecessary. Anyone familiar with the internal operations of government knows that 30% is a conservative figure for the number of federal employees who do nothing.  Allowing a tough, business-oriented president like Trump to dramatically reduce the size of the federal government would also reduce the cost of government – and all this could be done expeditiously. Federal employees would instantly become not only more efficient, but more polite and responsive to the public (i.e., the folks who pay their salaries).  More than that, coworkers in offices would strongly encourage politeness and civility, because the more complaints a particular office caused, the more likely that office would be to get a bad reputation, and people in that office would be fired. What about the danger of a president forcing people to support him or lose their jobs?  Civil servants ought to be completely apolitical anyway and ought not to contribute to any political campaign or to work for any candidate.  If that was the case in practice, then the president could not know who did not support him and, because all hiring was objective and removed from the president’s power, he could not hire any friends. If the president could not reward anyone by firing a federal employee but could only punish the federal employee by firing him, he would have every incentive to be fair in firing federal employees.  Politicians know that punishing voters loses votes not only because that voter, who may have supported the president, would be unhappy, but because every fired employee has family and friends and neighbors and congregants at his church, and firing an employee causes ill will among all those close to the fired employee. This is a reform is easy to understand and would make sense to the American voter.  Best of all, it would work.  Civility, efficiency, and integrity in the administration of the federal government would improve almost at once.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Priebus, 44, has been the longest-serving RNC chairman, winning the job in 2011 after serving as its general counsel. He unseated his boss, Michael Steele, and took over a party that was some $24 million in debt. Priebus led the famous “autopsy” of the GOP after its loss in the 2012 election, which recommended shortening the primary season and endorsing immigration reform as a way of reaching out to Latino voters. Priebus made an unsuccessful run for the Wisconsin state senate and in 2007 became chairman of the state GOP. In 2010, he helped elect Republican Scott Walker as governor and a GOP majority in the state Legislature, and it was clear his star was on the rise.)
