CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Tammy Duckworth calls immigration reform foes ‘racists and fear-mongerers’ – Kim Geiger  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Duckworth makes it clear that she is anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  In 2006, she succeeded in having her disgusting thugs throw me out of her rally in Wheaton with Michael J. Fox that was open to the news media.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Senate-seeking U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth appeared with fellow Democrats on Monday to advocate for long-sought changes to immigration laws, casting the November election as crucial to the cause while blasting opponents as “bigots and racists and fear-mongerers.” . . . Despite a recent firestorm over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment, in which she labeled Trump supporters “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,” both Gutierrez and Duckworth employed similar language as they tried to gin up support for the Democratic ticket.)

GAO hired me in Chicago 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in Chicago in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in Park Forest in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— Rauner wants state jobs review, just not federal court’s – AP  (DIERSEN: Are/were you a patronage hire?  I was not. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)
http://www.sj-r.com/news/20160919/rauner-wants-state-jobs-review-just-not-federal-courts
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Gov. Bruce Rauner pledged Monday to continue rooting out improper patronage hiring at the same time his lawyers were attempting to block a federal court monitor’s expanded review of all state administration jobs. The Republican again trumpeted getting rid of the clout-packed “staff assistant” position at the Illinois Department of Transportation – the remaining 29 were fired last week – as a “small step in the right direction.” Yet, Rauner says a review of all state positions by a special master – appointed in 2014 to investigate the scandal, in which the staff assistant posts were improperly handed out as political favors – is premature, too costly and duplicative of the work it wants the Office of the Executive Inspector General to do. “We want to expand the work of the executive inspector general, continuing to look in every department for positions that should not be in existence and for the existence of people who were hired … for patronage or political reasons, not to provide high-quality government services,” he said. In a motion filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, Rauner’s administration argues that the state has already paid $800,000 to the special master; expanding her workload would come at a much steeper cost. It also outlines a newly created Hiring and Employment Monitoring unit under the executive inspector general. Nonetheless, he told reporters Monday he has proposed a $600,000 expansion of that office. It hasn’t made headway because of the budget deadlock with Democrats who control the Legislature.)

— Emmy winner compares ‘monster’ Trump to Hitler  Jill Soloway: Trump is “other-izing people” – CNN  (DIERSEN: Soon, if not already, Clinton supporters will call everyone Hitler who does not worship Clinton.)
http://www.centralillinoisproud.com/entertainment/emmy-winner-compares-monster-trump-to-hitler
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One of the big winners at the Emmys on Sunday night delivered some of the harshest criticism of Donald Trump offstage — comparing the Republican presidential nominee to Adolf Hitler and warning against what she said were efforts to “otherize” groups of people. Jill Soloway, creator of Amazon’s “Transparent” and winner in the comedy series directing category, spoke to “Variety” backstage during the awards show, where she lit into Trump. “Jews were other-ized in Nazi Germany to gain political power for Hitler, and right now Donald Trump is doing the same thing. He’s other-izing people. He calls women pigs if they don’t look like beauty pageant contestants. He blames Muslims and Mexicans for our problems. He makes fun of disabled people. This is other-izing with a capital ‘O,'” Soloway said. She continued, “It has been used in our history before to start and win wars. He needs to be called out at every chance he gets for being one of the most dangerous monsters to ever approach our lifetimes. He’s a complete dangerous monster, and at any moment that I have to call out Trump for being an inheritor to Hitler, I will.” CNN has reached out to Trump campaign for comment and not yet received a response. With the criticism, Soloway delivered one of the sharpest Trump condemnations at the awards show — but she was far from alone, as the program featured a series of actors, directors and producers who slammed the GOP nominee. “Transparent” lead actor Jeffrey Tambor, another winner who was backstage during the exchange, said he agreed, according to Variety. And he reportedly quoted the poet W.H. Auden, saying “Love one another or die.” David Mandel — the showrunner of HBO’s “Veep,” which also won multiple awards, and who was also present backstage — joked that his show, which satirizes politics, couldn’t keep up with Trump. “There are days when things we think of pale in comparison to that madman threatening Hillary Clinton, not once but twice,” Mandel said, according to “Variety.” “If I wrote that, I’d get fired by HBO. I find the level of discourse in this campaign horrific.” He added, “A lot of people don’t want to laugh about this stuff.”)

NUMBERS USA
— DISGUSTING: MCDONALDS REPLACES 70 AMERICANS WITH FOREIGN H-1B WORKERS  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, employers shout that they are anti-American.)
https://www.numbersusa.com/news/mcdonalds-replaces-70-americans-foreign-workers
(FROM THE ARTICLE: McDonalds has joined the growing national trend of outsourcing American jobs to cheaper, foreign workers. The McDonalds in Ohio fired 70 American accountants and replaced them foreign, H-1B workers. McDonald’s spokeswoman, Terri Hickey, admitted that this was a cost savings effort saying, “To deliver $500 million in savings, the vast majority by the end of 2017, we are restructuring many aspects of our business, including an accounting function.” While the tech industry has been hit the hardest by outsourcing jobs to foreign labor this move by McDonalds shows that more American companies are trying to outsource a variety of jobs. Companies such as Disney and Abbot Laboratories to used visas, like the H-1B visa, to import cheaper labor instead of hiring American workers. In some cases, the employees were forced to train their replacements in order to receive their severance pay. Steve Camarota, Director of Research at the Center for Immigration Studies, says that this shows that white-collar outsourcing, “is not just a Silicon Valley thing anymore, it is happening all over”. A 2011 study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office exposed how the H-1B visa was being exploited and showed that there was very little oversight of the program. According to the report the government doesn’t even know how many workers are actually in the U.S. on H-1B visas at any given time.)
