— DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to pot pushers, “Illinois is making it hard — and expensive — to get a license to sell legal marijuana.”
https://www.bnd.com/news/politics-government/article233024377.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There currently are 55 medical marijuana dispensaries in the state. They would have the first crack at getting a second license to open another dispensary. Then, there will be 75 more dispensary licenses awarded before May 2020 and another 110 more licenses after Jan. 1, 2021, for a total of nearly 300 licenses. Applying for a license will cost $5,000, according to the legislation that was approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. “It’s hard, it’s very difficult and it’s only getting harder as time goes on. But because the way the system is being set up and them being competitive, that’s just how it goes,” Wright said. “Until there is a licensing system that is noncompetitive and just requirement-based, it’s tough to get in.” Wright said it could be initially difficult for smaller operations, because as the industry has grown in the country, there are more and more multistate operators.)

https://www.nprillinois.org/post/londrigan-responds-fake-reporter-incident#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Betsy Dirksen Londrigan’s campaign called the incident “underhanded.” . . . Londrigan says the stunt was in poor form. “Congressman Davis likes to go on television and talk about civility in politics, all the while his campaign is again engaging in an ongoing series of dishonest distractions,” she said. Klitzing formerly worked on Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign and served as the state Republican Party Director for a time. According to WCIA TV, Klitzing says he had received orders from higher-up campaign staffers. Davis campaign personnel have crashed Londrigan events before. “Congressman Davis’ field director showed up at one of my events drunk, and ended up getting arrested for assaulting people,” Londrigan said, recounting an incident from 2018. “It’s not the first time that somebody within the Davis campaign has behaved in this manner.” . . . When asked if her campaign is revisiting how it screens reporters for news conferences, Londrigan laughed and said it would be a “good idea.”)

I have always openly served as an operative for the Republican Party platform, for the Illinois Republican Party platform, and for the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling.) 
https://www.wcia.com/news/davis-campaign-volunteer-poses-as-reporter-to-ambush-dirksen-londrigan-press-call/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Although the 2020 election is still 15 months away, the campaign for Congressman Rodney Davis is already dispatching volunteers to surreptitiously try and undermine a key messaging strategy of his rival Betsy Dirksen Londrigan — that she can’t be bought and paid for. On Wednesday, July 17th, Dirksen Londrigan held a joint press conference call with a campaign finance reform group called End Citizens United. The campaign sent invitations to local media and asked them to RSVP. WCIA has learned an unpaid volunteer working on behalf of the Davis campaign crashed the call, lied about his name to pose as reporter for a college newspaper, and ambushed Dirksen Londrigan with pointed arguments, including jabs at her husband’s career. On the call, Dirksen Londrigan said, “Congressman Davis’ votes clearly show he is voting for the corporate PACs and special interests who fund his campaign.” She vowed not to accept any direct campaign contributions from corporate PACs, a political strategy Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders deployed successfully in 2016 to align himself with the growing number of Americans dissatisfied with the Washington establishment and who wanted an outsider to showcase they are not beholden to big business. Davis has pushed back against Dirksen Londrigan’s characterizations, saying on Monday that his campaign contributions have “no more clout over me than it has clout over her for taking money from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, who takes funding from the same sources.” Davis’s defense sounded nearly identical to lines of questioning from a man who joined Dirksen Londrigan’s press call five days earlier. Toward the end of the conference call, a man introduced himself as Jim Sherman from The Alestle, the student newspaper at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. . .However, the caller who went after Dirksen Londrigan and her husband in the press call was not who he claimed he was. Miranda Lintzenich, the editor of the student newspaper, told WCIA, “Our student paper is not something through class. It’s an actual employment job. As far as I can remember, we have not had anyone by the name of Jim Sherman work here.” According to SIUE’s public records, there is no one attending class on campus with the name Jim Sherman. An employee at the admissions office told WCIA, “We do not have anyone by the name of Jim Sherman associated with SIUE.” According to a call log provided to WCIA, the phone number used to dial into the conference call matched the cell phone number for Nick Klitzing, the former Executive Director of the Illinois Republican Party who most recently worked as the deputy campaign manager for former Governor Bruce Rauner. Reached by phone, Klitzing confessed to committing the hoax and said, “I was willing to help. I’m just a volunteer.” Veteran political reporter and press relations man Mike Lawrence called the episode “unfortunate” and “off limits for any campaign.” Lawrence served as bureau chief for the now-defunct Lee Enterprises and later in the same capacity for the Chicago Sun-Times for more than 20 years before signing on as former Governor Jim Edgar’s press secretary in 1990. Later, Lawrence served as the director of SIU’s Paul Simon Public Policy Institute. “I don’t think it’s appropriate,” Lawrence said. “It’s an indication of the continued degradation of campaigning. In some respects, it’s an extension of the ‘anything goes’ mentality.” Lawrence recalled the old days where campaigns would engage in “dirty tricks” or send trackers to hound rival candidates at public events, but said, “I think this goes a step further.” “It’s not appropriate for someone to misrepresent himself as a reporter,” Lawrence said. Confronted with the established facts of the story and Klitzing’s confession, Davis’ campaign manager Matt Butcher initially tried to deny having any knowledge about the phone call. WCIA gave Butcher another 24 hours to explain how an unpaid volunteer living in Chicago could have possibly been aware of a closed press call happening downstate, and how that volunteer might have known to parrot Congressman Davis’ talking points. Yet, Butcher still declined comment. Klitzing acknowledged he did not act alone, and that he was asked to make the call and interject with questions. He said it was his idea to offer up a fake name. Klitzing also defended crashing Dirksen Londrigan’s press call, saying “it happens all the time.” The organizer of the call did not find it common or comical. “Impersonating a college student in order to lob false partisan attacks is dirty politics and shows how low Rodney Davis’ campaign is willing to sink,” Muller told WCIA. She claimed Davis “can’t defend his record, so he’s sending other people to make false attacks. Rodney Davis should condemn these tactics and stop the dirty politics.” It’s unclear if Congressman Davis has any knowledge of the hoax phone call his campaign commissioned, or if he’s aware of WCIA’s persistent efforts to seek any comment or explanation from his campaign manager. His staff has taken the unusual step of repeatedly ignoring phone calls, text messages and emails from WCIA’s political reporters, and no longer sends press releases or notices of media availability to WCIA’s political staff, despite frequent requests to include them in media releases. In addition, WCIA has sent six separate invitations for Congressman Davis to appear on Capitol Connection since his November 2018 election victory. His office has ignored or declined each one.)

— What Is A Person Of Non-Color? – Dave King
https://www.conservativedailynews.com/2019/07/what-is-a-person-of-non-color/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In truth, all skin has “color” so the claim of liberals about people-of-color is somewhat lame and vague. There are no persons of non-color, but we do have leftist Democrats who use skin color to get what they want and to punish people who block their corrupt power grabs. To use skin color for punishment or reward is a dirty thing to do because no one can control the color of their skin. But, of course, we know that this select protected group of people-of-color consists of Democrats who, in their own opinion, are not deferred to freely enough, but one wonders, with all of this discrimination going on, why so many dark-skinned people living in America are multi-millionaires. One also wonders how Hispanic and Arab people were able to jump on the people-of-color bandwagon and partake of the benefits intended for the descendants of slaves, who were genuinely injured by just being someone else’s property, and often they were the property of other “people-of-color“.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A relatively new Island Lake transplant has been nominated to fill a vacancy on the village board. Dan Powell, who moved to Island Lake less than three years ago, could be appointed to the seat during Thursday night’s board meeting. He’s been nominated by Mayor Charles Amrich, but it’s up to the trustees to approve the nomination. If appointed to the board, Powell will replace Jennifer Villarreal, who unexpectedly resigned in June. Amrich initially had suggested appointing former trustees Mark Beeson or John Burke to the post, but board members objected to those nominations last month and delayed votes.)

Since 2004, those emails have gone out each and every morning, since 2015, they have gone out each and every evening too, and they have included links to more than 341,500 articles and information on many upcoming events. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 levels, currently $98,198-$127,654.

(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.)

— 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?)

— 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.

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.)

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.)
