NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
— The 1960s all over again? History isn’t quite repeating, but our tumultuous time does rhyme with that one in some strange ways – Todd Gitlin  (DIERSEN: What were you doing during 1968? I was a full-time student at UIC and a part-time Park Forest Post Office employee; I lived with my parents and bother in Crete; I sold my 1968 Oldsmobile 442 and bought a 1969 Dodge Charger SE; and I saved money for college expenses at NIU.)
http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/todd-gitlin-1960s-article-1.2704848
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s what happened within four months in 1968: Eighty thousand North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops seized the initiative by attacking some 100 cities and towns in a war that the Pentagon kept insisting was all but won. An unrepentant racist declared his candidacy for President of the United States. Having been challenged by two sitting senators, one of them the brother of the murdered former President, President Lyndon Johnson took himself out of the running for a second term. One killer murdered Martin Luther King, Jr. Another one murdered Bobby Kennedy, who just won California’s Democratic primary. And after a wave of urban riots, or rebellions, or whatever you wanted to call them, Americans stockpiled guns. Lunatic fringes thrived in the heart of established institutions. What was the war in Vietnam in the first place, after all, if not a lunatic war? What was the casual police beating of black motorists? Moods followed events. Events that had taken place in the dark, backstage, were now onscreen in living rooms. Nothing felt normal. Americans woke up every morning thinking, My God, what next? Jefferson Airplane had already recorded the line: “Logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead.” Was it the end of times? The apocalypse? The revolution? The counterrevolution? From day to day, all that was predictable was that something unpredictable was on its way from hell.)

CHARLOTTE POST
— Trump, Republican Party confuse outreach efforts with pandering  Identity politics is already part of campaigning – Raynard Jackson  (DIERSEN: Who are the conservatives in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois?  Who is reaching out to them?  I should write a book about “Republican” activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, in Gen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who do everything that they can to get rid of conservatives.  They talk and act like they are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, or RINOs.  One could argue that the Illinois Democrat Party treats conservatives better than the Illinois Republican Party does.)

The following stress my flaws and my vulnerabilities: those who a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, c) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, d) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, e) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, f) are operatives for the aforesaid, and/or g) are dupes for the aforesaid and those who are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  I should write a book about the aforesaid.)

PHILLY
— Wharton alums: Outraged that Trump links them to his ‘prejudice and intolerance’ – Chris Mondics  (DIERSEN: Government is nasty.  Politics is nasty.  If I sought a government office or a political office, my critics/opponents would shout that they could get thousands if not millions of signatures from IIT, Roosevelt, DePaul, Becker CPA Review, Loyola, NIU, UIC, Crete-Monee High School, Hope Lutheran Grade School, and Trinity Lutheran Grade School alumni and students on a letter that would demonize, denigrate, and condemn me far stronger than the anti-Trump Wharton letter. Further, my critics/opponents would shout that they could get thousands if not millions of signatures from my GAO, IRS, Firestone Stores, University Plaza Dormitory, Chrysler, Post Office, John’s Sinclair, Thrall Car, Flossmoor County Club, and S.S. Kresges superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinate on a letter that would demonize, denigrate, and condemn me far stronger than the anti-Trump Wharton letter.  Further, my critics/opponents would shout that they could get thousands if not millions of signatures from past and present Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants, etc. members, employees, etc. on a letter that would demonize, denigrate, and condemn me far stronger than the anti-Trump Wharton letter.  Further, my critics/opponents would shout that they could get thousands if not millions of signatures from activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, voters, etc. in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois on a letter that would demonize, denigrate, and condemn me far stronger than the anti-Trump Wharton letter.)
http://www.philly.com/philly/news/politics/presidential/20160710_Wharton_alums__Outraged_that_Trump_links_them_to_his__prejudice_and_intolerance_.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some 500 alumni and students at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School have signed a letter rebuking Donald Trump for “xenophobia, sexism, racism, and other forms of bigotry that you have actively and implicitly endorsed in your campaign.”  Trump, a Wharton graduate and the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has spoken glowingly of his experience at the renowned business school. Two of his children also studied there. It was not clear to what extent Wharton graduates and students writ large are dismayed by Trump’s candidacy and his affiliation with the school. While the letter had more than 500 signatories as of Saturday, Wharton itself claims to have about 94,000 alumni from 152 countries.)

At the same time, the number of polling places has been reduced in a cost-cutting measure. The city of Naperville straddles Lisle and Naperville townships. Sixteen new precincts have been created in Lisle Township, bringing the total to 114. Naperville Township’s 87 voter precincts include 18 that have been newly created.

— Law firms try for smooth succession with age, term limits – CLAIRE BUSHEY  (DIERSEN: Non-veteran White males who are seeking a job with the federal government should be advised that except for rare exceptions, a) the longer that you are a federal employee, the less likely that private sector employers will hire you, b) your career will be wasted and you will be gotten rid of if you do not make GS-13 ($92,632) by age 25, GS-14 ($109,463) by age 30, GS-15 ($128,759) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service ($160,300) by age 40, c) you will be expected to help your superiors and supervisors get rid of their employees who are Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, and d) virtually everyone despises if not hates federal employees, former federal employees, and federal retirees.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160707/NEWS04/160709889/chicago-law-firms-try-for-smooth-succession-with-age-term-limits
(FROM THE ARTICLE: At Levenfeld Pearlstein, a small Chicago law firm, birthday candles can signal a change in leadership. Last week the firm named David Solomon, 47, to head the corporate and securities practice, taking over from Mary Wasik, who at 60 had hit the firm’s age ceiling for holding a top management spot. At the same time, Laura Friedel, 43, stepped in to run Levenfeld’s labor and employment practice. The 60-lawyer firm with clients like Barrington and Bridgeview banks is one of handful in the Chicago market to lay out age restrictions and term limits for key leadership positions. Partners established the policy to make it easier for younger lawyers to take over management of the firm from their predecessors. Levenfeld Executive Director Angela Hickey said it is an issue many small and midsize law firms fail to address. “Most firms think of succession plans when the executive committee is 70,” she said.)

Of course, needless-to-say, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in Chicago were beyond furious.  They took their anger out me, the last non-veteran Republican in the office who was eligible for early retirement.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Iowa Civil Rights Commission Goes After Churches – Laurie Higgins (DIERSEN: Who works the hardest against you?  Those who promote LGBTQ activity, their operatives, and their dupes work the hardest against me.)
https://illinoisfamily.org/homosexuality/iowa-civil-rights-commission-goes-churches/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The kind of draconian restrictions of speech and religious rights that corrupt Canadian governance are  arriving bit by corroded bit on America’s church steps sooner than many expected and in, of all places,  Iowa. Make no mistake though, this is coming to every state. Iowa, like many other states, has a law banning discrimination based on, among other conditions, “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” in places of public accommodation. To be clear, the rhetorical contrivance “sexual orientation” really means “subjective homoerotic attraction and volitional homoerotic acts,”* and the rhetorical contrivance “gender identity” really means “the subjective desire to be the opposite sex or no sex,” both of which are ontological impossibilities. Iowa also has a Civil Rights Commission that has issued “guidance” on how the state law and corresponding city codes affect churches. It states that the anti-discrimination law—including its provisions regarding homoerotic feelings and sex-rejection—does, in fact, apply to churches. Fortunately, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Fort Des Moines Church of Christ to prevent the civil rights commission and Iowa attorney general “from forcing Fort Des Moines to use its facility in a way that violates its religious beliefs about human sexuality.” Here are some of the tricksy ways the Iowa Civil Rights Commission seeks to violate the civil rights of Christians.)

http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/286831-gop-senator-touts-break-from-trump
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) is highlighting his split from presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump as an example of his independence as he runs for reelection. “My independence is pretty clearly demonstrated when I de-endorsed Donald Trump,” the Illinois Republican told a local radio station. “I felt Donald Trump was too bigoted and racist for the land of Lincoln.” Kirk’s comments come as Senate Republicans meet with Trump at the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The Illinois Republican is one of a handful of vulnerable GOP senators who aren’t attending the closed-door sit-down. Kirk — widely considered one of this year’s most endangered GOP incumbents — was the first, and only, Republican senator to take back his endorsement of Trump from earlier this year. “I have concluded that Donald Trump has not demonstrated the temperament necessary to assume the greatest office in the world,” Kirk said in a statement in June. The Illinois Republican has repeatedly broken from his party as he runs for reelection on issues including Planned Parenthood and gun control. He also played up his decision to buck Trump in an ad last month. Kirk faces an uphill battle for reelection against Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) in a state widely expected to be carried by Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, in November. Republicans are defending 24 Senate seats. Democrat need to net five — or flip four and retain the White House — to win back the majority. While Kirk isn’t eager to tie himself to Trump, he also took a swing at Clinton over her use of a private email server while secretary of State. He added in the radio interview: “Democrats should really rebuke her, to leave their whole party to that level of risk.”)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— How the state financial mess could still kill college dreams for thousands – STEVEN R. STRAHLER (DIERSEN: How did you pay for your college expenses? I paid for my college expenses while I attended UIC full-time 1966-1968 and then NIU full-time 1969-1970 with money that I earned working for the Park Forest Post Office for about $15/hour in today’s dollars part-time during the school years and full-time during the summers of 1967, 1968, and 1969. My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966, 1967, 1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. That allowed me to save enough money to stay at University Plaza Dormitory for two semesters in 1969 and one in 1970 and then to share an apartment for the 1970 summer session at Lincolnshire West Apartments.  I graduated debt-free in August of 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, and a job working for Firestone in its Chicago Heights store.  If tuition back then was as high as it is now, I doubt that back then I would have had enough money to buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967 and a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160706/NEWS13/160709944/illinois-budget-woes-could-still-affect-college-map-grants-student
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s budget mess could delay or even kill chances for completion of college degrees for as many as 18,000 recipients of state financial aid, according to the agency that administers the grants. About one in seven respondents to a survey by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission said they were doubtful of returning to college this fall because of funding issues involving the Monetary Award Program.)

http://www.gopusa.com/?p=12107
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Nativism … xenophobia or worse” is behind the triumph of Brexit and the support for Donald Trump, railed President Barack Obama in Ottawa. Obama believes that resistance to transformational change in the character and identity of countries of the West, from immigration, can only be the product of sick minds or sick hearts. According to The New York Times, he will spend the last months of his presidency battling “the nativism and nationalism” of Trump and “Britain’s Brexiteers.” Prediction: Obama will fail. For rising ethnonationalism and militarization of frontiers is baked in the cake, if the West wishes to remain the West. Behind that prediction lie the startling figures of the U.N.’s “World Population 2015” chart, which just arrived. Consider but a few of those figures. Between now and 2050, Europe will lose 32 million people. Not one European nation has a fertility rate — 2.1 children per woman — sufficient to keep it alive. A quarter of all Europeans are 60 or older. The tribes that created the West are passing away. Contrast Europe with Africa, just across the Mediterranean. Between now and 2050, Africa will add 1.3 billion people, to reach 2.4 billion in 2050. Then its population will double again, to 4.4 billion, by 2100. Only 5 percent of Africans are 60 or older, while 41 percent of Africans are 15 or younger. Given the tyranny, destitution and disease that afflict Africa, what — other than barriers, border guards and warships — is there to stop tens of millions of young African men from crossing over in coming decades to fill the empty spaces left by dying Europeans? The Arab-Muslim population of North Africa alone, from the western Sahara and Morocco to Egypt and Sudan, will add 130 million people in 35 years. Egypt will add 60 million, to reach a population of 151 million by 2050. Yet Egypt will still have only the fifth-highest population of Muslims, behind Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. While impossible to find a Western country with a fertility rate that will prevent its native-born people from dying off, it is difficult to find a Muslim country that does not boast a rising or exploding population. If the future belongs to the young, it belongs to Asians, Africans and Latin Americans, and it belongs to Islam. Eastern Europe presents the grimmest picture in Europe. Between now and 2050, Poland will lose 5 million people; Ukraine almost 10 million; and Russia 15 million. Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia will see one-sixth of their combined population disappear. Such losses are comparable to those of World War II. In percentage terms, Ukraine will suffer most. By midcentury, its population will have shrunk by 21 percent, to 35 million. Is this not a graver matter than whose flag flies over Crimea? The bleakest prospects belong to Japan, home to some of the most capable, industrious and advanced people on earth. Between now and 2050, Japan will lose 19 million people and see its population fall to 107 million. A third of the nation is already 60 or older. Only 1 in 7 Japanese are under 16. Japanese are the oldest people on earth. In coming decades, a large slice of Japan’s population will be working to support health care, pensions and welfare for the aged, infirm and dying. And the United States?With Mexico and Central America adding 56 million people in 35 years, either the U.S. secures its southern border or the 11-12 million immigrants here illegally will have millions of new compatriots. America is already evolving into another country. Though the U.S. is projected to grow by 67 million people in 35 years, this growth will be wholly among Hispanics, Asians and African-Americans. In each of the past four years, non-Hispanic white Americans have registered more deaths than births. Between July 2014 and July 2015, the Asian-American population grew by 3.4 percent, and the Hispanic population grew 2.2 percent. The black population was up 1.3 percent. But the white population grew by only 0.1 percent. White America has begun to die. Can Obama really believe that amnesty for undocumented immigrants is still in the cards with a Republican Congress scorched by the forces behind Trump? Can he believe that the right-wing parties proliferating across Europe, which see their nations imperiled by a rising tide of Muslim immigrants and refugees, will pack it in and support the EU’s march to a transnational superstate that controls immigration and borders? What has been tabled for discussion this year, in Europe and America, is the future of the West as an identifiable civilization to be cherished and defended by the peoples whose ancestors created it. And Obama’s reverence for Islam notwithstanding, the West remains the greatest civilization of them all. Belatedly, Western Man appears to have decided to defend the shire, pull up the drawbridge, and man the parapets on the castle walls. As for Trumpism and the Brexiteers, Mr. President, in the words of Jimmy Durante, “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”)

I paid for my college expenses while I attended UIC full-time 1966-1968 and then NIU full-time 1969-1970 with money that I earned working for the Park Forest Post Office for about $15/hour in today’s dollars part-time during the school years and full-time during the summers of 1967, 1968, and 1969. My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966, 1967, 1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. That allowed me to save enough money to stay at University Plaza Dormitory for two semesters in 1969 and one in 1970 and then to share an apartment for the 1970 summer session at Lincolnshire West Apartments.  I graduated debt-free in August of 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, and a job working for Firestone in its Chicago Heights store.)

— Job Barriers Facing Ex-Prisoners Could Cost U.S. Economy At Least $78 Billion – Ellyn Fortino  (DIERSEN: Would ex-prisoners seek/take the jobs you have/had?  My critic/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes demonize, denigrate, and condemn the jobs that I have had auditing federal agencies, collecting delinquent federal taxes, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, working on an automobile assembly line, working as a security guard, delivering mail, pumping gasoline, chipping slag, cleaning golf shoes, washing dishes, delivering news papers, or doing yard work as being BAD jobs.  And in addition, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that I was dramatically overpaid while I held the aforesaid jobs.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— Churches fight back against Iowa bid to silence biblical views on sexuality, gender identity – Bradford Richardson (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes want to abolish the First Amendment.)
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/5/churches-fight-back-against-iowa-bid-to-silence-bi/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Two churches are fighting back against the Iowa Civil Rights Commission after the agency issued an interpretation of state law that could bar churches from expressing biblical views on sexuality and gender identity — even from the Sunday pulpit. Fort Des Moines Church of Christ filed a federal lawsuit against the commission on Monday, arguing that the agency’s interpretation of the Iowa Civil Rights Act violates the First Amendment. Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which represents the church, said it is difficult to “imagine a more obvious unconstitutional invasion of the state into the internal affairs of the church” than what the Civil Rights Commission is proposing. “Churches should be free to teach their religious beliefs and operate their houses of worship according to their faith without being threatened by the government,” Ms. Holcomb said in a statement. “That is a foundational First Amendment principle.” The lawsuit came in response to an explanatory brochure titled “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity — A Public Accommodations Provider’s Guide to Iowa Law,” released by the Civil Rights Commission. It says churches are public accommodations and therefore generally subject to the Iowa Civil Rights Act.)

 

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Mr. Comey, Hillary Wants Another Job That Requires a Security Clearance – Jim Geraghty  (DIERSEN: I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years.  I got a security clearance a) in 1980 when I started working for GAO, b) in 1971 when I stared working for IRS, and c) in 1966 when I started working for the Post Office.  I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) who have never gotten a security clearance or b) who could not get one if they tried.)
http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/437515/mr-comey-hillary-wants-another-job-requires-security-clearance
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bizarrely, even after declaring the FBI was not recommending indictment, Comey implied that if Hillary Clinton still worked for the federal government, she could be fired or have her security clearance revoked: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.” Mr. Director, have you noticed she’s trying to get hired for another high-level government job that involves handling lots of classified information?)

— Part-Time Jobs and Thrift: How Unpaid Interns in D.C. Get By – KATIE SHEPHERD  (DIERSEN: When you were a full-time college student, what did you do when you were not in class?  I pumped gasoline, delivered mail, worked on an automobile assembly line, and worked as a security guard.  During 1972, I worked full-time for IRS, worked part-time for Firestone Stores, and took graduate business classes at Loyola.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/06/us/part-time-jobs-and-thrift-how-unpaid-interns-in-dc-get-by.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Dominic Peacock found out he had been selected for an unpaid summer internship at the National Congress of American Indians here, he looked up the airfare from Albuquerque, rejected the option, and boarded a bus and rode 44 hours. Now, after a long day thumbing through bills and working for legislation to protect tribal artifacts, he walks a few blocks to a hotel restaurant where he buses tables until 1 a.m. His workweek — 60 to 75 hours long — affords him one day off to catch up on chores in his American University dorm room and explore the city. “This is the schedule that I want,” said Mr. Peacock, a senior at the University of New Mexico and member of the Acoma Pueblo tribe. “I’m going to finish this. I don’t care what it costs.” Thousands of interns like Mr. Peacock have descended on the nation’s capital, hoping to gain connections and work experience answering phones, sorting mail and occasionally helping with larger projects in congressional offices, federal institutions, nonprofits and legal divisions across the city. And unlike private companies, the government and nonprofit organizations do not have to pay them.)
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH BIG PICTURE: HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: Class Anger Fuels Town’s Pro-Brexit Defiance – Andrew Higgins  (DIERSEN: What class were you born into?  My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as someone who was born into the upper class. In my defense, a) neither of my outstanding parents attended college, my father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, and my mother never attended high school, b) my father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, worked in the office of a chemical plant, almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and died suddenly when he was 47 and I was 21, and c) my father did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy with almost no options.  If I was born into the upper class, why during my junior and senior years in high school did I spend four evenings a week and Saturdays during the school year and the summer in between washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights?)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Washington Lobbyists’ Trump Card: Skipping GOP Convention  Donald Trump has railed against those whose experience and cash could help in Cleveland – REBECCA BALLHAUS  (DIERSEN: I am an unpaid volunteer lobbyist for the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) resolution against video gambling. Of course, needless-to-say, because of that, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, countries, etc. that reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the IRP platform and/or reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling focus on destroying me.  What do you say to those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican who focus on destroying me?)

None of them have had the jobs that I have had auditing federal agencies, collecting delinquent federal taxes, selling tires, automotive services, and major appliances, working on an automobile assembly line, working as a security guard, delivering mail, pumping gasoline, chipping slag, cleaning golf shoes, washing dishes, delivering news papers, or doing yard work.  Most significantly, none of my current critics/opponents, their operatives, or their dupes worked for Democrats for almost 30 years like I did.)

— Safety training for covering the conventions – Sherry Ricchiardi  (DIERSEN: Anti-Trumps are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  Anti-Trumps believe that their end justifies their means.  Anti-Trumps are disciples of Saul Alinsky.)
http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/voices/2016/06/26/voices-safety-training-covering-conventions/86336188/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When the message popped up on the iPad screen, I did a double take: Journalists were ponying up $1,195 for a two-day hostile-environment class to prepare for covering the Republican and Democratic national conventions. It took a moment to sink in. Safety training is a lifeline for correspondents heading to Iraq or Afghanistan, where they could face rocket attacks, firefights and suicide bombers. But Cleveland and Philadelphia? In recent months, American media organizations have been providing reporters headed to the conventions with special training just as they do for those they send to combat zones. To safety experts like Frank Smyth, it makes perfect sense. “I have been a journalist for nearly 30 years. I have never seen this level of concern about any domestic political event,” says the former war correspondent. “People mention unrest unfolding at the DNC, but the RNC has potential to be much more violent.”)
