— Once Trump’s Loudest GOP Critic, Mitt Romney Set To Meet President-Elect – MEG ANDERSON  (DIERSEN: Who are/were the loudest Trump critics in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, and without question, Pat Brady is/was the loudest Trump critic in Illinois. Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, and without question, Pat Brady takes credit for the 93 votes that Kasich got in my precinct in the primary and the 211 votes that Clinton got in my precinct in the general election.  Of course, obviously, needless-to-say, and without question, because of Pat Brady, all the Republican candidates on the ballot in my precinct got fewer votes – Trump, Kirk, Munger, Roskam, Ives, Berlin, Kachiroubas, Grogan, Jorgensen, Bucholz, Grant, Elliott, Whelan, Telander, Fullerton, Brennan, Wheaton, Popejoy, Guerin, Mallen, and Sutter.  All those who have worked against Trump after Trump won the nomination should be prohibited in perpetuity from seeking or holding leadership positions in the Republican Party.)

— Donald Trump should be charged with tax evasion, not elected president  (DIERSEN: My Democrat IRS and GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business, accounting, and finance courses that I took a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and d) were a distraction. In 1978, my Democrat IRS superiors and Money Magazine succeeded in getting IRS to disallow the business courses that I had taken at Loyola and accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul.  Tax Court sided with me on the six business courses but sided with IRS on the seven accounting courses ruling that they qualified me for “a new trade or business.”)

Kresges in Chicago Heights thereby taking away the opportunity for an illegal to have that job.)

— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: Money for illegals, but not for schools? – Steve Small, Dunlap
http://www.pjstar.com/opinion/20161118/letter-money-for-illegals-but-not-for-schools
(FROM THE LETTER: Now that the election is over, we need to be ever vigilant to legislative moves done quietly in veto sessions, lame-duck sessions, etc. One such bill, was passed last May in the Illinois Senate (SB 2196) on a primarily partisan vote — 30 to 19 — with the support of only two Republican state senators (Christine Radogno and Chris Nybo). This bill would provide taxpayer-funded college tuition financial aid for undocumented immigrant students. The measure would add Illinois to the five states that grant immigrant students financial aid for college education regardless of their legal status. Already, Illinois is one of 18 states that allows any status immigrants to qualify for lower in-state tuition and set up a private college fund. This bill then moved to the House, where it languished in the Rules Committee until Nov. 9 — the day after the election — when it magically appeared as “approved for consideration and placed on the calendar order for a third reading.” We need to flood our state reps with outrage over this type of maneuvering! We were just asked to agree to three additional tax increases in Peoria County due to a lack of state funding for roads, schools and veterans care … yet there seems to be plenty of money for illegal non-citizens. It just never ends in the state of Illinois. Please make some noise!)
