The one-of-its-kind, bill-payment program seeks to avert the nightmare scenario for a state in the worst financial shape in the country: a shutdown of essential services such as employee health insurance, a disruption of prison food supplies or mothballing of state trooper cars in need of fuel and maintenance.
But it comes at a heavy cost with unlimited late-payment fees now approaching 20 percent in some cases for Illinois’ cash-strapped government, whose general obligation (GO) low-investment grade credit ratings are the lowest among U.S. states.

(Brietbart Columnist) Shapiro informs security that he has RSVPed as a speaker, as an audience member and as a security member.
He is then directed to some 30 security guards, though no protesters are in sight. He was denied entry.
“I’m wondering why is it so necessary to keep me personally out?” asks Shapiro.
“The bottom line is, it’s private property,” says a security guard, informing Shapiro that he will be arrested if he takes three more steps forward on campus.

“We have worked for years cultivating a culture of support and inclusiveness. . . . If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”—message to employees from GrubHub CEO Matt Maloney, Nov. 10, 2016

I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms.
If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.
If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.
if you speak of Trump at work you could get fired.

Sen. Ted Cruz called for a “serious criminal investigation” into multiple visits to the White House by Democratic consultant Robert Creamer after undercover videos showed he was involved in hiring protesters to disrupt Donald Trump events.

Political PR Man Rich Miller doesn’t see much in Robert Creamer’s Videos, where everyone else saw Creamer and his organization promoting political violence.

Democratic operative whose organization was helping Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced Tuesday that he would be “stepping back” from the campaign after an edited video suggested that he and other staffers hired people to attend Donald Trump’s campaign rallies and incite violence.
Robert Creamer — husband of Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky — announced his resignation in a statement after conservative activist James O’Keefe released a video under his organization Project Veritas Action, which showed Creamer and other operatives purportedly discussing methods for inciting violence at rallies for the Republican nominee.
It looks like big banks and corporations agreed to donate to the Democrats a certain percentage of the allocated TARP funds.
