— DuPage voter registrations don’t add up, group alleges – Caitlin Nordahl  (DIERSEN: Are you a DuPage County Republican Precinct Committeeman like I have been since 1999?  If so, how much deadwood is on the election rolls in your precinct?)
http://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/511107328-dupage-voter-registrations-don-t-add-up-group-alleges
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County’s voter registration logs are incorrect and possibly illegal, a transparency organization alleged in a letter it sent to the state recently. The county is one of 24 in Illinois that has more registered voters than voting-age residents, Judicial Watch said, and if the problem isn’t fixed within 90 days, a lawsuit could follow. “Dirty election rolls can mean dirty elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.  “These 11 states face possible Judicial Watch lawsuits unless they follow the law and take reasonable steps to clean up their voting rolls of dead, moved, and non-citizen voters.” Judicial Watch compared data from the Election Assistance Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey. It accused Illinois with not fulfilling requirements under the National Voter Registration and Help America Vote acts that charge states with ensuring voter rolls are up to date. States must have a program in place to remove registered voters who have died, moved or been convicted of a crime that removes their right to vote. Further, they must ensure that no non-citizens are registered to vote.)

— Parents arrested, accused of allowing teen son to smoke pot – AP
http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/dont-miss/250239247-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: SPANISH FORK, Utah – A couple has been arrested after allegedly telling police they allow their 14-year-old son to smoke a joint or two of marijuana at night if he goes to class and makes good grades. The parents were arrested Tuesday after police served a search warrant at the home. Officers had been investigating drug activity at the house for months. Reports say the parents were booked into Utah County Jail while police investigate possible felony child endangerment and misdemeanor charges of contributing to delinquency of a minor, marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession. Police say the parents believe the marijuana helped their son concentrate in school.)

http://www.wnd.com/2017/04/fox-superstar-tucker-carlson-cant-stop-raving-about-eye-opening-book/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s the book Fox News’ Tucker Carlson can’t stop raving about, and now you can get “No Campus for White Men: The Transformation of Higher Education Into Hateful Indoctrination” for $4.95 today. Carlson praised “No Campus For White Men: The Transformation of Higher Education Into Hateful Indoctrination,” saying, “Something’s wrong on college campuses. Most of us are dimly aware of that. In this bracing and sometimes horrifying book, Scott Greer pulls off the bandage to reveal the suppurating wound beneath. Higher education is rotting in this country. After reading Greer’s account, you’ll think twice before sending your children off to school.” “No Campus For White Men: The Transformation of Higher Education Into Hateful Indoctrination” promises to be the most talked about book of 2017, and today only you can get it for $4.95! White supremacy runs rampant in the Trump White House, cries the left. Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, according to Nancy Pelosi and many others. Bannon and Stephen Miller are closely associated with white nationalists, they say. And Trump supporters are “Nazis” who deserve to get beaten up.)

— Please join me in encouraging the 18 members of the DuPage County Board to pass a resolution ASAP in opposition to legalizing pot for recreational use in Illinois, SB 316 and HB 2353, and especially the 12 members of its Judicial & Public Safety Committee: Grant Eckhoff, Chair, Robert L. Larsen, Vice Chair, John Curran, Peter DiCianni, Amy L. Grant, Gary Grasso, James D. Healy, Tonia Khouri, Sean T. Noonan, Donald E. Puchalski, Sam Tornatore, and James F. Zay.  The next meeting of that committee is at 8:15 AM, Tuesday, May 2, 2017. I have asked that recommending passing a resolution in opposition to SB 316 and HB 2353 be put on the agenda for that meeting, that DuPage County States Attorney Robert Berlin speak at that meeting in favor of the resolution, and that the committee would vote at that meeting to recommend that the full board pass the resolution. Berlin has filed a witness slip with the State of Illinois in opposition to SB 316 and HB 2353 along with Anita Bedell, Peter Bensinger, Judy Kramer, Ralph Rivera, Kathleen Valente, Thomas Weitzel, myself, and others. – Dave Diersen

(FROM THE EDITORIAL: These visas are intended for use by employers when they can’t find a qualified U.S. worker to hire. Ideally, the American education system would churn out enough qualified graduates in the science/technology/engineering/math realm to fill every possible job slot. Why that’s not the case is a conversation for another day. But even if it were so, there’s reason to give employers opportunities to hire a certain number of exceptional foreigners who bring unique abilities to the table.)

The punch sparked a 17-second melee that rolled through the crowd watching the game between rivals Eisenhower and MacArthur high schools. After untangling the mess, Decatur school board members, riding the popularity of zero tolerance, expelled Carson and five other instigators — all African-American teenagers — for two years. A seventh student was allowed to withdraw rather than face expulsion.)

GOPUSA
— Hypocrisy in the Anti-O’Reilly Army – Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=23333
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News took Bill O’Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN’s media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it’s time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy. These same media outlets despised the idea that Donald Trump would drag Bill Clinton’s sexual harassment lawsuits into the presidential campaign. On Jan. 8, 2016, the Times editorial staff sneered: “It is also a tired subject that few Americans want to hear more about. If Mr. Trump has not read enough, he can curl up with a copy of the Starr report.”  Bizarrely, the editorial noted that Hillary Clinton had told a New Hampshire town hall questioner a month earlier that Juanita Broaddrick’s tale of rape was not to be believed. Yet it was Trump who was denounced as sexist and beyond the pale. The Times said: “His aim is to dredge up an ancient scandal and tar Mrs. Clinton with it in a clearly sexist fashion. There should be no place for that kind of politics in this country.” That is, unless it’s the top draw at Fox News, in which case it’s suddenly America’s greatest concern. On April 2, 2017, the Times published a 3,148-word front-page article lamenting “O’Reilly Thrives as Settlements Add Up.” Reporters Emily Steel and Michael Schmidt declared that their investigation found five women who received payouts from either O’Reilly or Fox “in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations against him. The agreements totaled about $13 million.” As they noted, the lion’s share of that total came in a $9 million settlement from 2004. That was 13 years ago, but it didn’t qualify as a “tired subject” or some “ancient scandal.” CNN relentlessly pushed for O’Reilly’s dismissal, calling up advertisers and pressuring them to take commercials off their competition. Bashing O’Reilly dominated their Sunday show “Reliable Sources” for weeks and their “news” programming after their victory. But two days after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke in 1998, CNN aired a town hall meeting titled “Investigating the President: Media Madness?” Host Jeff Greenfield insisted that millions of Americans were “asking the press one question fraught with significance: What the hell are you people doing trying to find out what kind of sex the President of the United States might or might not be having?” Back then, it was “media madness” to investigate whether then-President Bill Clinton might be assaulting women in the workplace — the Oval Office. There was zero concern about a “culture of abuse” inside the White House. For good measure, CNN moved on to specials attacking special prosecutor Ken Starr for prudishly investigating where CNN and the rest of the press never wanted to go. It’s not only CNN and the Times that are displaying a different moral standard. Does no one find it just a wee bit ironic that disgraced Brian Williams is still doing a weeknight show on MSNBC, where he can lecture that O’Reilly was dispatched by “the power of the female consumer”? Women deserve a workplace where men don’t harass them for sex. But that’s what these sanctimonious liberal journalists care about. It just doesn’t matter how brutal the alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick was. What matters is that Bill O’Reilly had to go. Bill Clinton is laughing.)

http://conservativerepublicannews.com/2017/04/20/lois-lerner-should-be-in-jail/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: From Feb. 2010 until May 2012 the IRS showed Americans exactly what the weaponization of executive agencies looks like when the Obama administration directly targeted the tea party and other conservative 501(c)(4) groups for political reasons. Now over three years later, justice still has not been served. Luckily, Congressman Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) and Kevin Brady (R-Texas) are seeking closure for the American people to eliminate the corruption Obama left in our country. In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this month, Roskam and Brady explain, “On April 9, 2014, the House Committee on Ways and Means voted to send a letter to the Department of Justice referring former IRS Exempt Organizations Division Director Lois G. Lerner for criminal prosecution… Despite this fact, and for what many believe were purely partisan reasons, the prior administration refused to review Ms. Lerner’s misconduct.” The congressmen are calling for an investigation once again to finally hold the IRS accountable for their actions.)

WGN TV
— Opponents of legalized pot say their voices aren’t being heard – GAYNOR HALL  (DIERSEN: Those who oppose legalization of pot who attended the hearing included Peter Bensinger, Kathy Gilroy, Judy Kreamer, Ralph Rivera, Thomas Weitzel, and myself. If you promote pot, feel free to unsubscribe to this email. If you are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, please speak out against legalizing pot. Further, please join me in encouraging the 18 members of the DuPage County Board to pass a resolution ASAP in opposition to legalizing pot for recreational use in Illinois, SB 316 and HB 2353, and especially the 12 members of its Judicial & Public Safety Committee: Grant Eckhoff, Chair, Robert L. Larsen, Vice Chair, John Curran, Peter DiCianni, Amy L. Grant, Gary Grasso, James D. Healy, Tonia Khouri, Sean T. Noonan, Donald E. Puchalski, Sam Tornatore, and James F. Zay.)
http://wgntv.com/2017/04/20/opponents-of-legalized-pot-say-their-voices-arent-being-heard/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But some opponents are upset they didn’t get to testify yesterday.  The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police is against legalization. Riverside Chief Tom Weitzel says it would normalize drug use. “I had signed up on behalf of Illinois chiefs to speak and I was under the impression that I could speak about our position,” he said.  “I think it’s important to have the chiefs perspective officers are the ones doing the enforcement. … The proponents are well organized. They have the ear because it’s all about dollars.” Sponsors of the bills in the state house and senate say they have no intention of bringing this to the floor this legislative session.  They say they will hold several more hearings to get public input in Springfield and Chicago.)

— Illinois lawmakers gather to discuss legalizing pot – Mike Flannery  (DIERSEN: Those who oppose legalization who attended the hearing included Peter Bensinger, Kathy Gilroy, Judy Kreamer, Ralph Rivera, Thomas Weitzel, and myself. The only legitimate reason to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails is to get information a) to help defend and advance the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and b) to help elect and reelect Republican candidates. If you promote pot, you should not claim to be religious, conservative, or Republican; you should immediately resign from any government or political office that you hold as a Republican and declare yourself to be a Democrat, a Libertarian, or Green. If you promote pot, feel free to unsubscribe to this email. If you are religious, conservative, and/or Republican, please speak out against legalizing pot. Further, please join me in encouraging the 18 members of the DuPage County Board to pass a resolution ASAP in opposition to legalizing pot for recreational use in Illinois, SB 316 and HB 2353, and especially the 12 members of its Judicial & Public Safety Committee: Grant Eckhoff, Chair, Robert L.

http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/249609492-story
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Legalization has a downside. Colorado’s now Number One in per capita pot consumption, with side effects like a 48 percent increase in fatal traffic accidents. A former Drug Enforcement Administrator predicted legalization here would cause 75 additional marijuana-related highway deaths each year. “Terrible idea! It’s a disaster waiting to happen in Illinois. It’s gonna increase damage to youth. It’s gonna increase highway accidents and fatalities,” said Peter Bensinger, former director of the DEA.)

USA TODAY
— What happens if you smoke marijuana every day? – Sean Rossman
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/04/20/what-happens-when-you-smoke-marijuana-every-day/100668404/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s what experts say happens when you smoke weed every day: Dr. Stuart Gitlow, a professor at the University of Florida and a past president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, said marijuana is much stronger than it was years ago, giving a more psychedelic feel rather than a mild sense of intoxication. A small percentage, he said, could have hallucinations and paranoia. However, the vast majority, he said, experience that mild high, which fades after several hours. After days of use, the pot becomes stored in the body’s fatty tissue and THC is gradually released into the bloodstream, meaning a person can experience the effect of the drug around the clock. Daily use, he said, promotes a chronic loss of attention, focus and concentration. Daily users perform at a lower level at jobs and at school. Focus and motivation also decrease, he said. Caron Treatment Center Medical Director Dr. Joseph Garbely said about 15% of cannabis users develop an addiction. Daily users, he said, suffer memory, coordination, and problem-solving issues. For some, it could change the way a brain matures. Smokers who start young, he said, are more susceptible to being a daily user or becoming addicted. . .Other factors need to be considered such as their dosage and the reason a person is using the drug. However, he said marijuana can have impact on how people perform at their job or at school. Withdrawal can occur after a period of long-term repeated use.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The hearing generated some hard feelings by marijuana opponents who weren’t allowed to testify. Riverside Police Chief Tom Weitzel represented the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police, which opposes the measure. “I don’t know why they didn’t reach out before this and ask us for our opinion and see if there’s some compromise,” he said, “because our officers are the ones doing the enforcement.” . . . Some Republican lawmakers on the panel expressed concerns about public safety and how the industry operates largely with cash, because federal regulations discourage normal banking and credit card use. Peter Bensinger, a former administrator of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, cited federal statistics showing marijuana use among teenagers initially increased 20 percent in the first two years after legalization in Colorado, compared to the two years prior. Bensinger also cited a near-doubling of emergency department visits and an increase in traffic death related to marijuana.)

It is a potentially dangerous gateway drug that frequently leads to the use of harder drugs,” Kelly said during a speech about his agency’s mission at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. “Its use and possession is against federal law and until the law is changed by the United States Congress, we in DHS, along with the rest of the federal government, are sworn to uphold all the laws that are on the books,” he added.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the essay, Tessa said students often are pushed to take college-prep and Advance Placement courses and to participate in multiple extracurricular activities in leadership roles to improve their chances of getting into the best colleges. Students who don’t follow that path or who don’t excel are often looked down upon, and Tessa called out the school community to “stop paving the one true path to success.”)
