CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Chicago’s Trump Tower unlikely to get name change – Blair Kamin
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/ct-trump-buildings-kamin-met-1118-20161116-column.html
— Rauner changes overtime rules, gives bonuses as state worker contract talks stall – Kim Geiger and Monique Garcia

— Watching the liberal meltdown over Donald Trump’s election – John Kass  (DIERSEN: Question for your Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain: How many in your precinct voted for Clinton and for Trump?  211 in my precinct voted for Clinton, but only 137 voted for Trump. What is the attitude of those in your precinct who voted for Clinton toward those in your precinct who voted for Trump?)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-liberal-meltdown-kass-1117-20161116-column.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The liberal Democratic meltdown continues: the whining, the weeping, the blaming of Hillary Clinton, the gnashing of teeth and those heartbreaking, sighing questions about whether life is worth living anymore. And that’s not just in America’s newsrooms, either, but in many other places too. Outside newsrooms, half the country is in political mourning, the other half is still relishing the election. And if they don’t relish the elevation of Donald Trump to the presidency exactly, they’re at least celebrating those videos shared on social media, of precious TV talking heads and pundits laughing hysterically while mocking the “uneducated” and the “deplorables” who didn’t have the wits to deny Hillary her Restoration.)
— Election analysis: On the edge of Illinois’ urban-rural divide – Cecilia Reyes and Geoff Hing  (DIERSEN: How highly populated is your precinct, your municipality, your township/ward, and your county?)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/data/ct-illinois-election-urban-rural-divide-2016-htmlstory.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: More than half of Hillary Clinton’s 2.9 million Illinois votes came from Cook County, with most of her remainder drawing from the other highly populated counties. And while President-elect Donald Trump won 91 of the state’s 102 counties, that was not enough to turn Illinois red like its neighbors. The trend of highly populated places voting Democratic and the surrounding, less populated areas voting Republican was a pattern repeated across the country. How deeply did that trend play out in Illinois?)

WAND
— VA whistleblower resigns, citing retaliation – AP  (DIERSEN: I blew the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination in the federal government.  My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated by forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, by not promoting me beyond GS-13, by keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and by forcing me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.  My Democrat IRS superiors retaliated by not promoting me beyond GS-12, by disallowing my education deductions in 1978, and by disallowing my partial day per diem claims in 1974.  My Democrat Post Office superiors retaliated by forcing me resign in 1969 and by disallowing my sick leave requests.)
http://www.wandtv.com/story/33728027/apnewsbreak-va-whistleblower-resigns-citing-retaliation
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Department of Veterans Affairs employee who told Congress the agency was using unauthorized wait lists for mental health care in Colorado has resigned, saying he was subjected to retaliation for speaking out. Brian Smothers told The Associated Press Wednesday the VA had opened two separate inquiries into his actions and tried to get him to sign a statement saying he had broken VA rules. He said he refused. Smothers also said the VA reassigned him to an office with no computer access, no significant duties and no social contact. He called the VA’s actions punitive and his working conditions intolerable. He said he resigned as of Tuesday. VA officials had no immediate comment on Smothers’ claim that he was punished for speaking up but said the agency does not tolerate retaliation. They said previously they take any allegation about unauthorized wait lists seriously and were cooperating with an inquiry.)

CHICAGO MAGAZINE
— There Were Clues to Trump’s Strength, Even in Illinois  Back in primary season, his most likely voters were those who’d only voted for a Republican once in the past three elections. His ability to reach those lapsed or wavering voters seems to have made the difference in the states where it did matter. – WHET MOSER

CHICAGOIST
— Rahm Calls Out Rauner, Trump As Budget Sails Through City Council – STEPHEN GOSSETT
http://chicagoist.com/2016/11/16/trump_rauner_budget.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Aldermen introduced a resolution that urged Rauner to defend undocumented immigrants and support Chicago’s sanctuary-city status. Rauner danced around the topic of Trump in the months preceding the election, trying to not embolden Democrats or hurt Republican chances in downstate races where red-leaning voters are more fond of Donald. The governor still seems shy about even speaking the president’s name. According to Tribune City Hall reporter John Byrne, Emanuel received a standing ovation from the City Council after an immigrant-support speech in which the mayor said Trump “uses a stereotype [of Jews] to justify he’s not anti-Semitic.” Emanuel on Sunday evening released a statement confirming that Chicago would stay a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants, a pronouncement he reaffirmed at a press conference on Monday with several local officials. Emanuel—who, it should be said, accepted $50,000 in donations from Trump in 2010—began to publicly challenge Trump most notably during the honorary street sign kerfuffle.)

THE BLAZE
— More millennials came out to vote for Donald Trump than expected – Brandon Morse (DIERSEN: Why?)
http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/11/16/more-millennials-came-out-to-vote-for-donald-trump-than-expected/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our pre-election poll of Millennials ages 18-34 had Clinton 49% vs. Trump 28%, a 21-point preference for the Democratic candidate. The National Exit Poll suggests that the actual split in the election was 55% for Clinton to 37% for Trump (an 18-point gap) among youth aged 18-29. Throughout the election season, our analysis has emphasized the demographic and ideological heterogeneity of Millennials, contradicting facile generalizations that characterize them as the “Obama generation.” In particular, there are regularly stark differences in ideology and issue positions among Millennials of different races, genders, and socioeconomic status.)

THE LEDGER
— Trump vs. the federal bureaucracy – Betsy McCaughey  (DIERSEN: QUESTION: Who sides with my Democrat superiors, my Democrat supervisors, my Democrat coworkers, and my Democrat subordinates in the federal government against me?  ANSWER: Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs. I should write a book about the aforesaid in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and Illinois.)
http://www.theledger.com/opinion/20161117/mccaughey-trump-vs-federal-bureaucracy
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump’s triumph over Hillary Clinton presages an even bigger battle against the heart of the Democratic establishment: the federal workforce. This army of bureaucrats – almost 3 million strong – gave Clinton a large majority of their votes and more than 90 percent of their campaign contributions. Count on federal workers and their union bosses to use every trick in the book to block Trump’s reform agenda. Trump’s ability to fix the Department of Veterans Affairs, clean up IRS abuses, rollback job-killing regulations and get taxpayers’ their money’s worth all hinge on uprooting the entrenched civil service. Newt Gingrich, a top Trump adviser, warns that “if you don’t fix this problem, nothing in government is going to work.” That’s a tall order. The bureaucracy generally retains its vise-like grip on the executive branch, as presidents come and go. Public unions are already digging in for a fight. Responding to the election, J. David Cox, President of the American Federation of Government Employees dismissed Trump’s plans as more or less irrelevant. AFGE members have their own big-government agenda, and “that never changes no matter who sits in the White House.” Protection of the status quo at any cost. Even death. Thousands of sick vets died at the VA because of employee self-dealing. Bureaucrats doctored the medical wait lists to earn bonuses while vets languished without care. Despite Congress enacting “reforms” and President Barack Obama appointing a new VA secretary in 2014, the bureaucracy continues to block giving vets access to civilian care. How impossible is it to fire anyone at the VA? A surgeon found guilty of abandoning a patient on the operating table and leaving the medical center still got an $11,000 bonus. Candidate Trump promised to make swift changes at the VA. Exit polls show military families voted for him 2-1 over Clinton. Dan Caldwell of Concerned Veterans for America says he’s encouraged to see civil service reform at the top of Trump’s agenda.)

They a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, c) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, d) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, e) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, f) are operatives for the aforesaid, and/or g) are dupes for the aforesaid.)
