— Historic Wheaton home may come down and property redeveloped – Bob Goldsborough  (DIERSEN: From what I see, interest in preserving Wheaton’s Protestant, conservative, and Republican past diminishes as more and more and more people who are vehemently anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican hypocritically move into and stay in Wheaton to take advantage of the safety and prosperity that Protestant, conservative, and Republican values have brought forth.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/wheaton/news/ct-wheaton-development-0906-20160906-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton’s nonprofit Center for History is venturing closer to parting with its final property, the historic Colvin house at 606 N. Main St., which a developer is proposing to tear down and replace with two single-family homes. The history group has been beset by financial issues since 2009, ever since Wheaton’s City Council decided to stop subsidizing the center. At that time, the city’s $225,000-a-year contribution accounted for 61 percent of the group’s $366,500 in financial income. Since 2009, the center has gradually wound down its operations, owing to a lack of funding, said the center’s CEO, Alberta Adamson. The group in 2010 collected $785,000 by selling a 1.45-acre parcel at 1746 Naperville Road on which the center at one time had envisioned building a museum. And in 2014, after it was unable to pay its bills, the center was evicted from the 6,000-square-foot space that it had been leasing above a onetime firehouse in downtown Wheaton. For the Center for History, that has left only the Victorian-style Colvin house, a white frame house built in the 1880s that is named for one of its first owners, John Colvin, who opened the Colvin Dry Goods and Notions Store in 1869 in Wheaton. The center bought the house, which sits on a spacious corner lot, in 1984 for $110,000 and later paid off its mortgage. In recent years, however, the center has deferred maintenance on the Colvin house, which has deteriorated. The center also took out two mortgages against the house in 2015 to free up funds to pay a $50,000-plus legal settlement related to its eviction. In 2014, the center first placed the Colvin house up for sale. Now, developer Roger Lautz is proposing to subdivide the 0.45-acre property into two lots, which given the Colvin house’s orientation on the property would all but guarantee its demolition.)

ILLINOIS REVIEW
— CHINESE BREAK GROUND ON NEW 95-STORY WANDA VISTA TOWER FEATURING $9M CONDOS  (DIERSEN: What condos have you bought in downtown Chicago?  I bought a studio condo in the Outer Drive East building in 1974 when I was 25 years old and then a one bedroom condo in that building in 1976 when I was 27 years old.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used the aforesaid to demonize me, to denigrate me, and to condemn me as being undeservedly filthy rich.  They stress that if I had not avoided the draft like Trump, I never would have been able to buy any condos in downtown Chicago.)
http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2016/09/chinese-break-ground-on-new-95-story-wanda-vista-tower-featuring-9m-condos.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Having a hard time figuring out how you’re going to pay your latest hike in health care insurance or property taxes? Well, you’ve little in common with the folks that will be living at the new Wanda Vista Tower – “the largest-ever real estate investment by a Chinese company in Chicago.” Chicago’s new skyline addition will be the third tallest, not quite as big as the Trump Tower – the one with the owner’s name Donald “TRUMP” displayed boldly on its front. It’s not for certain whether the name of Wanda Vista Tower’s owner – China’s richest man “Wang Jianlin” – will also appear on his new skyscraper. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is scheduled to participate in the 96-story building’s ground breaking at 375 East Wacker Drive Wednesday. The tower will include 406 condominium homes, 205 hotel rooms and 346 parking places. Luxurious four bedroom condos start at $9M and one bedroom condos start at $1M. The building plans to include a 5,400 square foot ballroom, as well as a full-service spa, a bar and two full-service restaurants. The building plans also include wine storage and a tasting room, a private dining area, demonstration kitchen and a full screening and media room. On the 46th floor, health devotees will find Club Vista, with a fully-equipped fitness center and swimming pool.)

TOWNHALL
— Trump’s ‘Softening’ Can’t Make His Immigration Stance Popular – Jacob Sullum  (DIERSEN: When push comes to shove, many, if not most, if not virtually everyone surrenders to Mexico and to its citizens.  Virtually no one can take being called a racist.  Soon, to get an education, to get a job, and to get anything else in America, you will have to speak, read, and write Spanish.)

— Trump Calls for More High-Skill Immigration – Michael Barone  (DIERSEN: Democrats run America.  Because of that, the more of the following that you are, THE LESS LIKELY THAT YOU WILL SUCCEED IN AMERICA: Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, gun owner, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbarone/2016/09/07/trump-calls-for-more-highskill-immigration-n2214915
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Then he proposes a major policy change: “to select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in U.S. society, and their ability to be financially self-sufficient … to choose immigrants based on merit, skill and proficiency.”  That’s not racism or hate speech, and it’s not out of line with American tradition. Emma Lazarus’ oft-quoted poem commends America for welcoming “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses” and “the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” But during the great wave of immigration from eastern and southern Europe from 1892 to 1914, the Ellis Island inspectors, in line with national policy, excluded those deemed incapable of supporting themselves as well as those with communicable diseases.)

Therefore, of course, needless-to-say, my job-related degrees from NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and IIT became worthless in GAO’s eyes.)
