GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - November 22, 2014

-- State legislative Latino caucus gathers with Obama’s executive action at forefront of discussion - COURTNEY GOUSMAN  (DIERSEN: Obama's "Executive Amnesty" is a vicious attack on Republicans.  It is increasing clear that those who want "immigration reform" want to get rid of Republicans like me who support the immigration plank in the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform.  What do you say to those who say Fort Sumter (, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (, Pearl Harbor (, the Gulf of Tonkin attack (, and September 11 ( were "great starts?"  Just kidding, but not completely.  How soon, if not already, a) will Republican Precinct Committeemen like me who support the immigration plank in the IRP platform be barred from attending Republican and other events in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois and b) will otherwise be punished?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Even guest politicians like Republican governor-elect Bruce Rauner devoted a good portion of their time addressing the president’s move.  “I want the American Dream for every family in Illinois and I am a strong advocate for comprehensive immigration reform,” Rauner said. “It’s a great start … to get the dialogue going.” Rauner promised to help make immigration reform a reality. “Our Republican members who I am very close with, I will be encouraging them to take up comprehensive immigration reform in congress in coordination with the President,” he said. “Because that’s the way the real changes, the permanent structural changes, will be made.”)
-- Illinois politicians seeking court guidance on pensions may be let down - Rick Pearson  (DIERSEN: Of course, those who are not in line to get a defined benefit pension or are not receiving one will use the court's decision to further demonize, denigrate, and condemn those who are in line to get a defined benefit pension or are receiving one now like I do.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner and other politicians looking to the courts for guidance on how to legally reduce a worst-in-the-nation public pension debt that threatens to hamstring Illinois' economy and government, Sangamon County Circuit Judge John Belz offered little solace. "Illinois courts have consistently held over time that the Illinois (Constitution) Pension Clause's protection against the diminishment or impairment of pension benefits is absolute and without exception," Belz wrote Friday in rejecting as unconstitutional a landmark 2013 law to change retiree benefits and rules. "The State of Illinois made a constitutionally protected promise to its employees concerning their pension benefits," the judge opined. "Under established and uncontroverted Illinois law, the State of Illinois cannot break this promise.")
-- PARCC: Not another test! Yes, but a valuable one - Editorial
-- FRONT PAGE WITH FOUR COLOR PHOTOS: What teens would tackle if they were mayor of Chicago - Juan Perez, Jr.
-- Time for all-new plan on pensions - Editorial
-- Parents tell state superintendent to stop PARCC test - LAUREN FITZPATRICK  (DIERSEN: I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt when I was 30 years old in 1979. In retrospect, with benefit of hindsight, I would have majored in accounting at NIU and taken the examination much sooner.  Many of those around me at the time, including my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates at the Post Office and at IRS, hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I could never pass the CPA examination.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Cedra Crenshaw, mother of three children in western suburban schools, joined Raise Your Hand before the hearing at the Thompson Center to call for a formal testing opt-out bill, and to ask ISBE to apply for a required testing waiver from the federal Department of Education. State Sen. William Delgado and Rep. Will Guzzardi are willing to sponsor the legislation and introduce it in January, Katten said. Crenshaw said PARCC, even with accommodations, isn’t appropriate for children with special needs, like two of her children. The way testing laws are written now, “a child has to make a conscientious decision on his own to refuse a standard test,” Crenshaw said. “My son has an IEP (individualized education plan) specifically because he can’t make conscientious decisions on his own.”)
-- EDITORIAL: Honesty the best policy:  Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham, said, "I have no defense for it," when he pleaded guilty to conducting campaign business on county email and paid a $545 fine. He said a factor in the screwup could have been his unfamiliarity with cellphone technology. We've all been there. And, we appreciate his candor. Now, how about a tech lesson?
-- Top 400 U.S. households paid 18 percent average tax rate in 2010 - Richard Rubin  (DIERSEN: How federal income tax did you pay last year, during the last 5 years, the last 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, 40 years, 50 years, 60+ years?)
-- University Park trustees OK unusual raises for themselves - Susan DeMar Lafferty  (DIERSEN: In 1972, when I was 24 years old, I bought a town home at 774-5 Sunset Court in University Park ( I lived in it full-time 1972-1974 while worked for IRS in its Harvey and Joliet offices and took graduate business courses at Loyola.  I lived in it part-time (weekends) 1974-1976 while I worked for IRS in its Loop office and took graduate business courses at Loyola.  I started renting it out in 1976 and sold it in 1984.)
-- Illinois activists and leaders gear up for impact of President Obama's immigration action - Sophia Tareen  (DIERSEN: Of course, those who are anti-White, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, and/or anti-American support Obama and his efforts to get rid of Republicans and especially his efforts to get rid of Republicans who are religious, conservative, White, male, older, gun owners, non-poor, non-veteran, and/or who have ancestors who have been in America for a long time.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois has one of the nation's largest immigrant populations and some of the most immigrant-friendly policies. . .Six states including Illinois are home to more than half of the immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, according to a November study by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. However, the immigrant population in Illinois dropped by about 30,000 between 2009 and 2012, to about 475,000 people. Researchers attributed the change to fewer immigrants from Mexico crossing the border. Illinois already has some of the country's strongest policies benefiting immigrants. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has vowed to make Chicago the nation's "most immigrant-friendly city." Illinois has a private scholarship fund for immigrant students who are living in the U.S. illegally, and last year began offering immigrants living in the country illegally drivers' licenses. . .Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner — the state's first Republican governor in more than a decade — said he favors a comprehensive overhaul but hasn't discussed specifics. He didn't address Obama's actions directly, saying Thursday that he believes Obama and Congress should work together.)
-- Rauner transition member Jil Tracy questioning last minute IDOC job postings
-- No business for monkeys - Editorial
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Illinois Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner on Thursday asked the outgoing administration to freeze state hiring, appointments and job reclassifications. To paraphrase, he said there’s no indication of monkey business, but based on past experience it is wise to ask our lame-chimp administration to refrain. Of course the governor’s office would not commit. Why give up their last shred of power for the good of the state? The state’s media reported those two points as well as Rauner’s characterization of the state’s finances as “horrible.” What was not widely reported, but we found especially interesting, was an exchange between Rauner and a reporter near the end of his press conference. “Our goal here is to assemble the most talented team of individuals who’ve ever turned around a state government. That’s my No. 1 priority today. We have cast a broad net. We want very talented executives. In fact, I want to spread the word among your readers and viewers: We are looking for everyone in Illinois who’s willing to be a public servant and serve, who is talented, has high integrity and has expertise in pensions, in corrections, in juvenile justice, in health care, in Medicaid.” A reporter then interrupted Rauner to ask why these talented individuals should come work for a state when they might not get one of those pensions that is driving the state’s fiscal crisis. We loved Rauner’s response: “Public servants serve as a way to give back in our community and make a difference.” Did you hear that, Springfield? Public service, not self service. Why did Rauner say he wanted to be governor? To serve the people of Illinois. So we expect him to surround himself with those interested in serving — not in hiring their kids to sleep on the job, or in retiring fat and sassy, or in getting two ex-girlfriends well-paying state jobs. The voters’ message, boiled down, was that we’re done watching the chimps throw excrement. Time to teach them to roller skate.)
-- One year later: District 200 collaborative reports new partner groups for at-risk students - Nathan Lurz  (DIERSEN: Were you an at-risk student?  Thank to my outstanding parents, I was not.)
-- WHEATON POLICE REPORTS: Fighting: William J. Buell, 33, 703 W. Liberty Drive, Wheaton, was charged at 5:35 p.m. Nov. 6 with fighting and drinking in a public place at Prairie Path Park.  Michael R. Gradisek, 45, 703 W. Liberty Drive, Wheaton, was charged at 5:35 p.m. Nov. 6 with fighting and drinking in a public place at Prairie Path Park. James H. Ourada, 49, 703 W. Liberty Drive, Wheaton, was charged at 5:35 p.m. Nov. 6 with fighting and drinking in a public place at Prairie Path Park.  (DIERSEN:  703 W. Liberty Drive is the address for DuPage PADS (  The Prairie Path Park is in my precinct.  Who invited Buell, Gradisek, and Ourada to come to Wheaton, to stay in Wheaton?)

-- Comparing College Costs the Easy Way - Ron Lieber
-- Harvard’s Asian Problem  A lawsuit says racial preferences hurt high-achieving minorities. - Editorial  (DIERSEN: Are/were you "high-achieving?  Of course, my critics hint/imply/argue/shout that I never was and that I never will be.  In my defense, I point out that a) I passed the CPA examination in 1979 and the Certified Internal Auditor examination in 1981 on my first attempt, something that only about 20 percent of those who take those examinations can say, b) I earned masters degrees from Loyola, DePaul, and IIT in business, accounting, and finance in 1976, 1980, and 1997, c) notwithstanding the fact that I am not a Democrat, a female, a minority, or a veteran, federal agencies hired me in 1966, 1971, and 1980 and promoted me in 1972, 1973, 1974, and 1986, and d) notwithstanding that I complained about reverse discrimination and age discrimination, I survived my Democrat superiors' efforts to get rid of me for almost 30 years.)
-- Automation Makes Us Dumb  Human intelligence is withering as computers do more, but there’s a solution. - NICHOLAS CARR  (DIERSEN: The decisions made to include and to not include links to articles in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails is NOT automated.  I make those decisions.  I consider at least ten articles for every one article that I include in the emails.  Since January 1, 2005, I have included more than 175,000 articles in the emails.  That means that I considered, but did not include more than 1.75 million articles.)
