CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— With former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner out of state’s political scene, Illinois GOP turns to grassroots fundraising – RICK PEARSON (DIERSEN: What motivates you to donate money to Republican political organizations? For me, it is their demonstrating that they can and will help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Illinois Republican Party platform and the Republican Party platform.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-without-rauner-illinois-republicans-turn-to-grassroots-fundraising-20191014-uis6mwbrcvc3veh662sfqfofci-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its last filing with the State Board of Elections, the state GOP reported having $88,412 in cash on hand as of June 30. Rauner’s last donation to the state party, totaling $100,000, came two days after Democrat J.B. Pritzker defeated him for governor, 55% to 39%. Pritzker’s victory has turned the tables on Republicans. The Democrat is the country’s wealthiest politician, worth $3.4 billion and ranking 250th on the Forbes 400 list of wealthy Americans. President Donald Trump comes in at 275th on the list with a net worth of $3.1 billion. Pritzker gave his campaign $172 million and his campaign fund has given the state Democratic Party nearly $3.2 million, state campaign finance records show.)

Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school.

My Democrat IRS superiors punished me. They 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors punished me. They forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

Conservative O’Malley refused to endorse the more moderate Ryan in the general election campaign, and Ryan was beaten by Democrat Rod Blagojevich, who is doing time in a federal penitentiary on a corruption conviction. “If O’Malley hadn’t attacked Ryan so viciously in the primary, Ryan could have made up the five points by which he lost and Illinois would have looked much different today,” Syverson said.”

ALTON DAILY NEWS
— Challenges Anticipated with Legal Weed – Doug Jenkins (DIERSEN: QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES: Have you ever used recreational weed? If so, exactly when and exactly how much? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? Are you going to use recreational weed when it is legal? If so, exactly how often and exactly how much? What do you say to people who impair themselves? Have you ever driven a vehicle while you were dunk or incapacitated? If so, exactly when? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? What do you say to people who impair themselves?) 
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=292314#.XaRSrL5_OM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While there are established, accepted and legally binding blood alcohol levels when determining when someone is drunk or incapacitated, no such tests exist to see if you are high on marijuana. With recreational weed becoming legal in Illinois next year, that has employers trying to figure out policy on how to address its use. A spokesman from OSF Healthcare outlines some of the challenges. Troy Overholt, Vice President for Occupational Health at OSF HealthCare admits to employers that while it may be risky and has yet to be challenged in court, monitoring for marijuana impairment in an employee may need to be less scientific and more observational. There is no scientifically reliable way to measure for marijuana intoxication. THC is stored in fat cells, so the length of time it’s in your system is not a blood test level. So, he says you could test high today from use weeks or months ago, and it depends greatly on frequency and the amount of use.)

Of course, the Democrats will bankrupt you if any of your ancestors owned slaves, fought for the Confederacy, lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line, etc.)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that there is a 22+ year gap in my resume. They stress that my GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— Women still get fired for being pregnant, as Elizabeth Warren says she was in 1971 Walmart, UPS and other major employers have faced charges of mistreating pregnant workers – Leslie Albrecht (DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Firestone Stores fired me because I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Of course, to force an employee to retire is to fire that employee. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me retire, that is, they fired me. They fired me a) because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, c) because I refused to help them get rid of their employees who were Republican White, male, and/or non-veteran because they had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40, and d) because many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates despised many of my demographics including my being Republican, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

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.)

Here’s how. . .There are four resources in every campaign: people, skill, money and time. Every candidate has at least some of one or more of those resources. . .Today, the guidance would be to build your friends on Facebook. Your friends become volunteers, funders and word-spreaders — your “organization.” Don’t expect any help from your local political party organization, which is likely on life support. You and your friends also have skills, maybe at running a small business, which is basically what a campaign is about — setting up a small business that lasts about one year. You write a campaign plan, much like a business plan. In the plan, you establish a vote-total goal and where those votes are located; how to reach them; how much it will cost, and how to raise the requisite amount. Depending upon the office you seek, your plan might simply be in your head, or in a thick three-ring binder. But there has to be a plan. Political consultant Steve Shearer of Peoria observes that 90 percent of the candidates who spend more money than their opponents win. So, money is important, though obviously not controlling in all cases. . .The Illinois State Board of Elections website offers a complete Candidate’s Guide, which walks you through the filing requirements. The key to success, from Lincoln’s day to the present, is effective strategy (the plan), not tactics (specific tasks). . .Steve says winning is about strategy, message and image. Strategy is based on such factors as analysis of recent voting returns, the issues that move voters in your constituency, both candidates’ (including the opponent) strengths and weaknesses. From that comes the plan to achieve your vote-total goal.)

— When God Is Your Portfolio Manager Biblically responsible investing is booming, as some Christians move to match their faith with their stock buys – Jason Zweig
https://www.wsj.com/articles/when-god-guides-your-investment-portfolio-11570811305
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What would Jesus buy? That question is spreading in the investing world, as evangelicals and other Christians seek investment management and financial planning to match their interpretation of biblical principles. The latest sign of the rise of faith-based investing was the launch of the Inspire International ESG exchange-traded fund on Sept. 30. Its ticker symbol? WWJD, short for the popular expression “What would Jesus do?” Many socially responsible investors favor companies that recruit LGBT workers or donate to Planned Parenthood and the like. By contrast, biblically responsible investors shun companies that profit from or support abortion, pornography, gambling, or LGBT issues. No matter what you believe or how you invest, the advent of this approach highlights the promise and perils of socially responsible investing in general: You can salve your conscience, or you can earn higher returns. It isn’t likely you can do both. Biblically responsible investing, or BRI, is booming as investment managers who are losing assets to index funds strive to find new niches.)

— 9 Things About Public Relations They Didn’t Teach You in College – Arthur Solomon (DIERSEN: Of course, I should sue my critics/opponents who hint/imply/argue/shout that I do not honor embargo requests, off-the-record requests, etc.)
https://www.prnewsonline.com/journalists-media-relations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Embargo Just because a PR firm distributes a press release with the words “Embargoed Until” atop it doesn’t mean that a reporter will honor it. Most will, but it’s always good to have someone speak to the journalist and request she agree to honor the embargo. Scientific studies sent to specific editors are an exception. The same is true for releases saying “For Release After.” PR pros should know that once a release is distributed, when it is used is up to editors. Off-the Record You can tell a media member that something is “off-the-record,” but it doesn’t mean a reporter considers it so. Establish off-the-record ground rules upfront. Specifically, do so prior to conveying information you want kept off-the-record. ‘If you don’t want it reported, don’t say it’ is the advice I always give to executives before interviews or when they socialize with the media. Recall Madeleine Westerhout, President Trump’s personal assistant, who “quit” or was fired after making comments during a dinner. The event supposedly was off-the-record.)

If you were me, how would you react when the aforesaid candidates regularly open my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and click on links in those emails? 
https://politicalresources.com/for-candidates/campaign-how-to-library/60-campaign-how-to/voter-contact-media-relations/135-how-to-write-campaign-press-releases

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 4. Identify the decision makers at the media that are key for your campaign and develop a relationship with them. Get to know what issues they think are important in the election and feed them information on those issues. . .6. As much as possible, treat all media equally. Don’t discount a reporter because she or he works for a weekly.)

CAPITOL FAX
— Sanguinetti bows out of congressional race From Evelyn Sanguinetti via a campaign spokesperson… It is with deep regret that I must announce that I have officially decided to end my campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congress for the 6th Congressional District of Illinois. I want to thank everyone that supported me through volunteering, financial contributions, and words of encouragement and support. I am sorry if this announcement lets you down. Although I firmly believe that I can and will win the nomination if I stayed in the race, the question in my mind is at what cost. There has been enough destruction in the Republican Party from past election cycles, and I choose not to contribute further to it by engaging in a costly and negative campaign against my opponents. I wish the remaining candidates all the best, and I encourage all Republicans to unite behind the eventual nominee for the good of the Party and more importantly the Nation as we continue the fight to stop socialism and to protect the American Dream for future generations.

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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

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. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Oak Park trustee Susan Buchanan berated fellow trustees for speaking on racial equity and oppression during Monday’s board meeting. “You have been white from birth,” Buchanan told fellow trustees Dan Moroney and Deno Andrews. “Why are you arguing what is a system of oppression? You’ve never experienced one, so shut up! I don’t want to hear from you! Just stop Dan, just stop Deno. You are not oppressed and people in Oak Park and we are trying to recognize that as a community.” Buchanan’s comments drew a round of applause from the audience.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Where pot is sold, it brings down everything and everyone around it. How close is a “Disproportionately Impacted Area” (DIA) to where you live or work? Illinois Democrats want pot shops to open up in DIAs to revitalize those areas. Wheaton is the DuPage County Seat. The Democrats who run the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (IDCEO) have outrageously designated western Wheaton as being a DIA, that is, an area that has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis as well as poverty and unemployment. Needless-to-say, that must be a mistake. While Wheaton has banned the sale of pot, the Democrats who run Illinois may very well vote to allow pot shops in DIAs thereby overriding Wheaton’s ban. I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.

According to the IDCEO, it designates a census tract as being a DIA if the area 1) has a poverty rate of at least 20%, 2) has 75% or more of its children participate in the federal free lunch program, 3) has an average unemployment rate that is more than 120% of the national average for a period of at least 2 consecutive calendar years, 4) has at least 20% of its households receive assistance under the supplemental nutrition assistance program, or 5) has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to the sale, possession, use, cultivation, manufacture, or transport of cannabis.

According to the IDCEO, it designated Census Tract 8426.04 in western Wheaton (https://censusreporter.org/profiles/14000US17043842604-census-tract-842604-dupage-il/  and https://www.chicagocityscape.com/maps/index.php?place=censustract-17043842604) as a DIA because a) according to Illinois Department of Employment Security data, it had an average unemployment rate over the last two calendar years that exceeded the national average over that time period by more than 20% and b) because the per-capita rate of parolees residing in the area who had been imprisoned for cannabis offenses exceeded the cutoff for a high imprisonment rate. According to the IDCEO, “Unemployment rate data is from Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES). Data on parolees is from Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC). Per-capita rate is determined using census tract population from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year Estimates.” From what I see, one or both of the aforesaid must be a mistake. If Census Tract 8426.04 in western Wheaton as a DIA, than all of Illinois is a DIA.

I have asked the IDCEO to provide me ASAP with the specific sources of the following data concerning Census Tract 8426.04: “According to IDES data, it had an average unemployment rate over the last two calendar years that exceeded the national average over that time period by more than 20%” and “The per-capita rate of parolees residing in the area who had been imprisoned for cannabis offenses exceeded the cutoff for a high imprisonment rate.”

Again, I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.
