SOUTHERN
— Union County Democratic Party withdraws legal action over county board’s pick for state’s attorney – MOLLY PARKER (DIERSEN: What do you say to a) those who cast Republican primary ballots and/or sign Republican candidate petitions but who focus on destroying Republicans and b) those who do not cast primary ballots and/or do not sign candidate petitions but who focus on destroying Republicans?) 
https://thesouthern.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/union-county-democratic-party-withdraws-legal-action-over-county-board/article_99de7213-eda0-58fd-906c-ff441241f069.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement to The Southern on Thursday, Union County Democratic Party Chair Teresa Vincent said that the county’s legal counsel has since provided her the necessary documentation establishing Klingemann’s affiliation to the Democratic Party. Klingemann, a private attorney in Marion who previously worked as an assistant state’s attorney with Edmonds, had not voted in primary elections, and was not active in party politics. The board confirmed his appointment by a 3-2 vote along party lines, with Republicans voting in favor of his confirmation and Democrats against. Union County Board Chairman Max Miller previously said that Klingemann stated to him during the interview process that he was a Democrat, which he said satisfied the party affiliation requirement under the law. But Vincent argued that Klingemann’s record was not sufficient to establish him as a Democrat. She pointed to a section of the law that specifically speaks to the replacement of state senators and representatives and defines party affiliation as follows: A person is a member of a party for 23 months after signing a petition for a candidate’s partisan candidacy for office, signing a petition joining a particular party, pulling a partisan primary ballot, running for partisan office or otherwise holding a partisan position such as state central committeeperson.)

RUSS STEWART
— BAIL-OUTS PROLIFERATE AMONG DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEEMEN
http://www.russstewart.com/articles/2019/09-11-19.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here is a multiple-choice question for anyone who is still paying attention. A Chicago Democratic ward committeeman is (a) at the top of the political food chain, (b) at the bottom of the political food chain, (c) holds a non-paying post that is inconsequential, and/or (d) believes it’s a steppingstone to glory and power. Anybody who is now or has been a committeeman would answer (b) and (c). Anybody who aspires to and is running for committeeman in 2020 would answer (a) and (d). And everybody else, including this columnist, would give a resounding (c). After all, the sitting Democratic committeemen of the 1st, 39th, 40th, 41st, 45th and 49th wards, who were elected in 2016, lost 2019 bids to be elected or re-elected alderman, and the 50th Ward committeeman and the former 32nd Ward committeeman lost 2018 state senator and county commissioner races. Robert Murphy (39th) and Pat O’Connor (40th) lost the April 2 aldermanic runoff with, respectively, 44.1 and 46.2 percent. Proco Joe Moreno (1st), Tim Heneghan (41st), John Arena (45th) and Joe Moore (49th) lost the Feb. 26 primary with, respectively, 38.8, 29.7, 36.2 and 36.6 percent. And Ira Silverstein (50th) lost his Illinois 8th Senate District seat with 29.9 percent and John Fritchey (32nd) lost with 44.6 percent. They would surely answer the above question with a (b) and (c).)

— ‘Transparency’ in journalism doesn’t exist, but it could (DIERSEN: Unlike virtually all journalists, I am transparent. I fully disclose that I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, a Republican Precinct Committeeman since 1999, and I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, federal retiree, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to destroy me. They use the aforesaid to paint me as being a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, someone who harasses people, and even worse things. They talk and act like they work for those who dominate the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois. I should write a book about them. Better yet, I should sue them.)

THE HILL
— How important is candidate age? – MARK MELLMAN (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 70. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/460812-mellman-how-important-is-candidate-age
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Candidates are not simply bundles of age, race and résumé. They have issue positions and priorities, personality traits and personal stories, that weren’t measured in these conjoint experiments. We don’t know how much age matters compared to those factors. More broadly, moving from the generic to the specific is not always clear cut. In our example, while 70 may be too old, not all 70-year olds are too old. That’s exactly what a new CBS YouGov poll on candidate age tells us. In response to questions specific to each candidate, just 37 percent said Sanders was “too old” to be president, 31 percent said Biden was and only 5 percent believed Warren is too old to be president. Polls seem to tell us that age is important. But failure to ask the right questions, in the right ways, can lead analysts and strategists astray.)

— Americans Get Richer And for those concerned about economic inequality, there appears to be less of it. – James Freeman (DIERSEN: The main reason why the Diersens’ net worth is not declining is that we have reduced our standard of living. My $53,316/year Civil Service Retirement System pension is only 42% of what my GAO salary was in 1997 in today’s dollars.)

— One Argument for Radical Income Transparency Our research suggests that disagreements about government spending may be partly based on misperceptions about how much others make – Oliver Hauser and Michael Norton (DIERSEN: My Civil Service Retirement System pension is $53,316/year.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/one-argument-for-radical-income-transparency-11568167323
(FROM THE ARTICLE: How much do people actually know about the income and wealth of people who live around them? And how does what they think they know skew the way they think about government taxes and spending? Recent research we conducted suggests that the answer to those two questions are: Not much and a lot. An emerging body of research suggests that citizens’ preferences for spending on public goods—from social programs to health care to infrastructure—are based in part about who they believe contributes and benefits. However, we discovered that many people are unaware of the true extent of inequality where they live. And in some cases, their beliefs are dramatically different than reality.)

My retirement income is far less because my Democrat superiors in the federal government wasted my career and forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

Ever-increasingly, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party act like they are taking the advice of political consultants who say the more of the following that you are, the less electable that you are: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

According to my critics/opponents, the aforesaid can and should punish me if I do anything that they believe is wrong.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190910/tribes-teams-and-journalists
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Both sides fundamentally misunderstand the role of impartial and independent journalists. We belong to no tribe, root for no team.

— Liberals haunted by social media tactics they use against the right – MADISON GESIOTTO (DIERSEN: Unlike my critics/opponents in the media who falsely claim to be objective and/or nonpartisan, I fully disclose that I am conservative and Republican. Further, I fully disclose my demographics: Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), patriotic, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, etc.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/technology/460595-liberals-haunted-by-social-media-tactics-they-use-against-the-right
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The reason why liberal editors are so distraught that independent conservative journalists are publishing evidence of the racist, anti-Semitic, and otherwise vile sentiments expressed by their supposedly “objective” employees comes down — as it usually does — to power. Many journalists are in the profession not to inform the public, but to gain the power to destroy people who question them — and they don’t like those tactics being turned against them. “[U]sing journalistic techniques to target journalists and news organizations … is fundamentally different from the well-established role of the news media in scrutinizing people in positions of power,” the Times wrote in its article — which was of course labeled “news,” not “opinion.”)

— San Francisco branded the NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization.’ The gun-rights lobby is suing. – Katie Shepherd (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who violate my First Amendment rights, that is, those who stop people from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Better yet, I should sue them.)
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/09/10/san-francisco-nra-domestic-terrorist-organization-lawsuit/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “San Francisco’s actions pose a nonfrivolous constitutional threat,” the lawsuit argues. “Defendants are intent on targeting the NRA for its advocacy, chilling the NRA’s and its members’ rights of free speech and association under the First Amendment, all with an eye to silence the NRA from the debate on Second Amendment rights.” . . . “This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” NRA lawyer William A. Brewer III said in a statement. “Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

— Richest Would Have Lost Half Their Wealth Under Elizabeth Warren’s Tax Plan – Rich Miller and Laura Davison (DIERSEN: How soon will the Democrats who run Illinois, your county, your township/ward, your municipality, your school district, your park district, etc. impose a wealth tax on you? How much will they say that your home, your vehicles, your possessions, your etc. is worth?)
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-10/richest-could-lose-hundreds-of-billions-under-warren-wealth-tax
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Massachusetts Senator Warren has proposed that the wealthiest 75,000 households pay an annual tax of 2% on each dollar of their net worth above $50 million. It would rise to 3% on every dollar above $1 billion. She has said this would combat rising inequality. Critics have charged that the tax would be hard to administer and easy to avoid. They’ve also questioned its constitutionality.)

— Elements of Libel and Slander
https://injury.findlaw.com/torts-and-personal-injuries/elements-of-libel-and-slander.html
(FROM THE POSTING: Defamatory Statements One essential element in any defamation action is that the defendant knowingly or negligently published something defamatory about the plaintiff. A communication may be considered defamatory “if it tends so to harm the reputation of another as to lower him in the estimation of the community or to deter third persons from associating with him,” according to the American Restatement of Torts (or “The Restatement”). Examples of defamatory statements are virtually limitless and may include any of the following: . . . A communication that exposes a plaintiff to ridicule A communication that reflects negatively on the plaintiff’s character, morality, or integrity . . . A communication that suggests that the plaintiff suffers from a physical or mental defect that would cause others to refrain from associating with the plaintiff)
— 3 Crimes For Threatening a Politician (DIERSEN: Of course, I reserve my right to sue anyone, and their accomplices, a) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I am not a journalist, b) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I harassed anyone, and/or c) who threatens to stop anyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2012/09/3-crimes-for-threatening-a-politician.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ever think of threatening a politician? With the endless loop of commercials and phone calls, it’s only our sanity and knowledge that threatening a politician may be a crime that stops most of us from doing so. But every year, a few people do lose it and lash out with threats and actions against a politician or political candidate.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190909/sensitivity-in-teaching-lgbtq-and-history
(FROM THE LETTER: Same sex marriages are legal and adoptions are now permitted. “Transing” from one gender to another is unusual no matter how you cut it. There is no reason for any hostility to gays and for those that have changed genders, but endorsing and even encouraging it is objectionable to many who have different views and believe strongly in the traditional family with one mom and one dad. There are celebs and great poets and philosophers who have been gay and have made contributions to society, no doubt about it. But the foundations for their good work had nothing to do with their sexual orientation.)

https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/08/higher-education-has-become-increasingly-partisan/596407/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At a recent gathering of conservatives, for example, Hawley drew a straight line from the declining economic prospects of non-college-educated workers to a number of social maladies. “Just about any American worker without a four-year college degree will have a hard time in the cosmopolitan economy. Maybe that’s one reason why marriage rates among working-class Americans are falling, why birth rates are falling, why life expectancy is falling. All the while, an epidemic of suicide and drug addiction ravages every sector, every age group, every geography of the working class.” This divergence of the economic prospects of the college-educated and non-college-educated is hardly a new development. What is new, though, is the growing interest among Republican lawmakers, Hawley included, in doing something about it legislatively. One implication of the senator’s remarks is that Congress ought to be more solicitous of the interests of the non-college-educated, and to that end the senator recently introduced legislation that, according to The Hill, would allow low-income students to use federal dollars currently earmarked for higher education to pursue vocational training. Leaving aside the merits of Hawley’s proposal, there is reason to believe that it is good politics, or rather good Republican politics. As the Pew Research Center finds in a new survey, there’s been a sharp increase in dissatisfaction with America’s colleges and universities among Republicans in recent years, and it makes perfect sense for right-of-center policy makers to want to do something about it. Consider the changing composition of America’s major-party coalitions. Shortly after the 2018 midterms, Adam Harris observed that the Trump presidency was accelerating the “diploma divide,” which refers to the starkly different voting patterns of college-educated white voters and those without a degree, a split that is unique to whites. In the midterms, Republicans did 16 points better among whites without a college degree, while securing the votes of only 45 percent of their college-educated counterparts. In contrast, when George H. W. Bush defeated Michael Dukakis in 1988, he did so in part by winning college-educated white voters by 20 points. Another factor in the diploma divide is the gender gap in college attendance and completion. In the 1980s, women began graduating from college in higher numbers than men, and since then, their advantage has only widened. Today, you have to go up to the 60-and-over demographic before you find men outnumbering women among college graduates. The diploma divide has also had implications for partisan geography. When Republicans lost the House in 2006, half of their vulnerable seats were in districts that had more college graduates than the national average; that number was 70 percent for the 2018 midterms.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)
