https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190723/roskam-on-being-in-the-private-sector-the-season-for-me-in-public-life-i-think-has-come-to-a-close
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In his wake, Republicans Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti, both of Wheaton, are running for the 6th District seat in what’s expected to be a hotly contested GOP primary for the chance to face Casten. Roskam said he’s pleased to support Ives, offering her an endorsement from him and his wife, Elizabeth. Roskam said he anticipates Republicans will have a strong year in 2020 with the return of a presidential election to bring out voters. As for President Donald Trump at the top of the ticket, however, Roskam said only voters can decide his fate. It’s too early to make predictions, he said, at a time when underlying political assumptions are changing across the country.)

AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE
— Middle America Will Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night – PATRICK J. BUCHANAN (DIERSEN: Are you a Republican? As Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, and RINOs ever-increasingly make it clear that they are going to get rid of you once and for all, what are you going to do to protect yourself?)
https://www.theamericanconservative.com/buchanan/middle-america-will-not-go-gentle-into-that-good-night/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: This past week revealed anew what we Americans think of each other, which portends trouble ahead for the republic. For a democracy to endure, there has to be an assumption that the loser in an election holds a promissory note that new elections are only a few years off. And if the losers can persuade a majority to support them, they can reassume positions of authority and realize their agenda. Trump’s 40 to 45 percent of the nation is not only being constantly castigated and demonized by the establishment media, but it is also being told that, in the not far distant future, it will be demographically swamped by the rising numbers of new migrants pouring into the country. Your time is about up, it hears. And most of the Democratic candidates have admitted that, if elected, the border wall will never be built, breaking into the country will cease to be a crime, ICE will be abolished, sanctuary cities will be expanded, illegal immigrants will be eligible for free health care, and, for millions of people hiding here illegally, amnesty and a path to citizenship will be granted. America, they are saying, will be so unalterably changed in a few years, your kind will never realize political power again, and your America will transform into a different America where the Squad and like-minded leftists set the agenda. Will the deplorables, who number in the scores of millions, accept a future where they and their children and children’s children are to submit to permanent rule by people who visibly detest them and see them as racists, sexists, and fascists? Will Middle America go gentle into that good night?)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— Calls to leaders of the Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association, which posted the racially tinged image, went unanswered. But a source close to the RCCA said the organization’s social media volunteer came across the “Jihad Squad” artwork on a pro-Trump Facebook page, thought it was funny, and posted it without approval. (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who do not want me to serve as the webmaster for the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), DuPage County Republican Central Committee, or the Illinois Republican Party.

I should write a book about past and present MTRCC leaders, their operatives, and their dupes a) who discourage me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out, b) who discourage MTRCC members and everyone else from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, c) who discourage Republicans from contributing to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks, d) who blame me for MTRCC’s problems, e) who blame me for their problems, f) who blame me for your problems, g) who blame me for my problems, h) who blame me for everyone’s problems, i) who blame me for all the defeats that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000, j) who reject many if not most of the planks in the Republican Party platform and the Illinois Republican Party platform, and/or k) who talk and/or act like they have been promised by those who I have sued and/or by others a new home, a new car, lots of money, a sweetheart contract, a sweetheart job, favorable legislation, and/or lots more if they get rid of me.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190722/ives-seeks-more-freedom-for-6th-district-in-campaign-to-unseat-casten
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Marty Keller, chairman of the DuPage County Republicans, said he hopes finding the best person to defeat Casten, a clean energy entrepreneur who unseated longtime Republican Rep. Peter Roskam last year, will be the true focus of the 2020 primary. But he doesn’t look forward to the anticipated conflicts between Sanguinetti and Ives. “They’re going to bump heads and spend money,” Keller said about the intraparty foes. “I don’t think you’ll find a primary that made the party stronger afterward.” Ives, 54, said she won’t overlook the primary and knows Sanguinetti has her supporters. But she said she isn’t worried about conflict within the Republican Party. “What Republican Party?” she said. “The Republican Party is pretty divided already.” Her primary run against Rauner is one illustration, and not an example she shies away from. Ives said that challenge shows she’s able to call out — or work with — people of any party when policy or the public good calls for it. “Nobody’s been more independent from both parties than Jeanne Ives,” she said. But in her campaign launch speech Sunday, Ives aligned herself with Roskam, touting the endorsement she has received from the former congressman and his wife, Elizabeth.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker has pitched his graduated-rate income tax plan by emphasizing that only a tiny sliver of Illinois residents would pay more if voters approve a change to the state constitution in November 2020. Those residents, as might be expected, are concentrated in a handful of wealthy enclaves in the city and suburbs. In fact, a quarter of all taxpayers statewide who would be hit by the higher rates — those earning more than $250,000 a year — reside in just 15 of the state’s more than 1,500 ZIP codes, covering places like Lincoln Park, Wilmette, Barrington and Elmhurst, according to a Tribune analysis of Illinois Department of Revenue income tax data from 2016, the most recent year available.)

THE HILL
— Illinois GOP group shares, then deletes meme labeling minority congresswomen ‘Jihad Squad’ – OWEN DAUGHERTY (DIERSEN: From Mark Shaw, President, Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association: “A couple of days ago, an image which was not authorized by me was posted on the Facebook page of the Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association (“RCCA”). I condemn this unauthorized posting and it has been deleted. I am sorry if anyone who saw the image was offended by the contents. This unauthorized posting is an unfortunate distraction from the serious debate surrounding the policies advocated by these four socialist members of the United States House of Representatives of which I strongly disagree. Republican opposition to their proposed “Green New Deal”, elimination of all private health insurance, open borders and anti-Semitic posturing has nothing to do with these Representative’s races or religion. The RCCA has a multi-stage, approval process for all social media posts on any of the RCCA’s social media properties. Nevertheless, the RCCA’s internal review process is being re-evaluated to insure that any content posted in the future represents the “big-tent” nature of the Republican Party.” Also, ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider responds to the recent Facebook post on the Illinois Republican Chairman’s Association page: “I strongly condemn evoking race or religion as the basis for political disagreement. The recent social media post coming from the IRCCA does not reflect my values or the Illinois Republican Party’s values. Bigoted rhetoric greatly distracts from legitimate and important policy debates and further divides our nation. My intense disagreement with the socialist policies and anti-semitic language of these four congresswomen has absolutely nothing to do with their race or religion. I urge everyone who also opposes them to keep the rhetoric focused on policy and political ideology.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite the upcoming Illinois marijuana legalization Jan. 1, 2020 it’s business as usual at the Modern Cannabis booth. MOCA, a marijuana dispensary, has been a staple of Pitchfork for at least two years, the dispensary itself open since 2016. A MOCA representative told the Tribune that right now, the booth serves to educate festival attendees on “a safe alternative, safe medicine” and on how an individual might get a cannabis card (you need to be an Illinois resident, for one thing).)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: What encourages you to run for office? For me, it is a lack of candidates who have promised to and/or have demonstrated a) that they can/will defend/advance the Republican Party platform and the Illinois Republican Party platform, especially their traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, and equal opportunity planks (no race of gender based preference giving) planks and that they can/will oppose the promotion of dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, diminishment of First and Second Amendment rights, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.)

— Can Facebook predict your future health? Researchers found 21 conditions were predictable from the social media network alone. – Najja Parker
http://www.startribune.com/can-facebook-predict-your-future-health/512600962/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For instance, those who used “drink” and “bottle” had an increased risk of alcohol abuse. And terms expressing hostility, such as expletives, were more predictive of drug abuse and psychoses. “This work is early, but our hope is that the insights gleaned from these posts could be used to better inform patients and providers about their health,” lead author Raina Merchant said. “As social media posts are often about someone’s lifestyle choices and experiences or how they’re feeling, this information could provide additional information about disease management and exacerbation.”)

When I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinated did not want me to transfer, but failing that, they wanted me to transfer as a GS-4 Step 1 (currently $33,591/year) intern, that is, to suffer a $60,001/year (64%) pay cut in today’s dollars. They painted what GAO Analysts do as being a unique “trade or occupation.” They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, or veteran. They viciously demonized, denigrated, and condemned the fact a) that I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592/year, b) that much of what IRS Revenue Officers do is similar to what GAO Analysts do, c) that I had passed the CPA examination on my first attempt in 1979, d) that I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976, and e) that I had almost completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. They were furious that I transferred with me almost 12 years of federal seniority, 30 days of unused vacation days, and 130 unused sick days.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-cresco-dispensary-wrigley-field-20190719-5nkq7sa7zfbativs5vr5cimnaq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meanwhile, operators around the state are preparing for recreational marijuana sales, which are set to start Jan. 1. Under the law Gov. Pritzker signed last month legalizing recreational use, existing medical dispensaries may apply to sell recreational marijuana as well. They may also apply to open a second location. In all, Cresco co-owns or owns five dispensaries and operates three cultivation facilities in Illinois. The company has applied with the state to sell recreational cannabis at its five existing dispensaries, Erkes said. If the company relocates its Lakeview facility across from Wrigley Field, it is unclear whether Cresco would have to reapply for a license to sell recreational marijuana there. The state has not started accepting applications for second dispensary locations. Municipalities and counties may ban cannabis businesses. Chicago has not yet established any zoning rules for the recreational industry.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/7/17/20698369/racism-bigotry-trump-ocasio-cortez-gene-lyons-irish-discrimination
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Alas, we can’t urge Trump to go back where his family came from, because his big flapping mouth might land him in prison. Having had their fill of it under Adolf Hitler, the Germans have criminalized what they call “Volksverhetzung,” or “incitement of the people.” In Germany, it’s illegal to urge “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins, against segments of the population or individuals because of their belonging to one of the aforementioned groups … or calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them.” The penalty is three months to five years.)

https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2019-07-19/google-settles-job-seekers-age-bias-claims-for-11-million
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Google agreed to pay $11 million to end a lawsuit accusing the internet giant of discriminating against older job applicants, a deal that amounts to an average payout of more than $35,000 for 227 people who joined the class action. The settlement also calls for the Alphabet Inc. unit to train employees and managers about age bias, create a committee focused on age diversity in recruiting and ensure that complaints are adequately investigated. Lawyers for the company and attorneys representing the over-40 job seekers who sued submitted a final settlement proposal Friday to a federal judge in San Jose. Lawyers will collect about $2.75 million from the accord. The case was brought by a woman who claimed she was interviewed by Google four times over seven years and was never offered employment despite her “highly pertinent qualifications and programming experience” because of her age. Cheryl Fillekes accused the company of “a systematic pattern and practice of discriminating” against older people.)

My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974.

When did your ancestor come to America? Mine came during the 1840s and 1850s. What were they doing in 1919? On my father’s side, they were operating Crete’s only hardware store. On my mother’s side, they were operating a farm in Grant Park on the Indiana border.)

— Sick, Exhausted Agents Stoke Exodus Fear Amid Migrant Surge – Michaela Ross (DIERSEN: I was a National Treasury Employees Union member during the almost 9 years that I worked for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://about.bgov.com/news/sick-exhausted-agents-stoke-exodus-fear-amid-migrant-surge/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Job risks include exposure to tuberculosis, flu, scabies Employee assistance program seeks to help deal with stress Sergio Tinoco used to wear his Border Patrol uniform home with pride. Now, after a typical 10-hour day in heat that can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit, he says many on his team no longer wear their uniforms to or from the job. Tinoco, an agent of 14 years and U.S. military veteran, said his fellow agents in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley are repeatedly falling ill with flu. They’re also seeing scabies, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and lice from waves of about 1,200 migrants crossing through their facilities daily and are worried their uniforms will carry contagions. And that’s not all, he said: Many agents are being harassed in public. “We’re completely exhausted,” Tinoco said in an interview, not speaking in his official capacity. “It takes a toll on the human spirit.” Long work hours and exposure to diseases are driving agents to retire early and take sick leave, union officials and government watchdogs say. While public outrage has focused on the separation of families and children, overcrowding, and unsanitary conditions, policymakers are increasingly concerned about attrition and suicide among the agents on the front lines of the migrant surge. The border agency for years has struggled with attrition, but this year has been one of the toughest in the 95-year old patrol’s history. Migrant children and families crossed the border in record numbers while agents saw their pay delayed by a 35-day government shutdown. The patrol is approximately 7,000 agents short, the Government Accountability Office reported in March. More than 700 customs officers from around the country were diverted this spring when apprehensions soared to more than 130,000. That division of the border agency now faces a shortage of approximately 3,500 officers, said the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents officers.)

DCCC
— RECRUITMENT FAIL: IL-06 GOP Primary Turns Into Full-Blown Civil War
https://dccc.org/recruitment-fail-il-06-gop-primary-turns-full-blown-civil-war/

(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Firebrand conservative Jeanne Ives launches campaign for Congress after Evelyn Sanguinetti’s horrible fundraising report, setting up a rematch of the nasty 2018 Republican gubernatorial primary. Remember how we said Evelyn Sanguinetti’s week couldn’t get any worse after she got outraised 7-to-1 by Rep. Casten in her first fundraising quarter? Apparently we were wrong. After weeks of speculation, far-right conservative Jeanne Ives officially filed for Congress today in the 6th District – apparently Sanguinetti’s paltry fundraising haul couldn’t scare her off. After Sanguinetti’s ticket barely survived a brutal challenge by Ives in the 2018 Republican primary, expect another toxic race to the conservative fringes this cycle in a district that President Trump lost by seven points. Sanguinetti has already endorsed President Trump’s re-election, so who knows to what extremes Ives will drag her to over the course of a contentious primary. “Today’s announcement sets the stage for a brutal race to the conservative extreme in the 6th District between a floundering Evelyn Sanguinetti and a far-right wing Jeanne Ives,” said DCCC spokesperson Mike Gwin. “While Ives and Sanguinetti battle it out over who can bear-hug President Trump the hardest, Sean Casten will remain focused on delivering for middle-class Illinois families by working to keep down the cost of health care and lowering taxes for homeowners.”)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)
