I would focus on those who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.) 
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/poll-public-backs-criticism-of-journalists-trumps-attacks-appropriate
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the latest sign that major American media outlets are losing the public’s support, a majority believe it is appropriate for politicians to criticize reporters and hold them to the same scrutiny as those they cover. A new Rasmussen Reports survey also said most voters believe the average journalist is liberal, and few are conservative. The survey is an indictment of the media at a time when liberal outlets such as CNN and the New York Times are stepping up their attack on President Trump and congressional Republicans. The outlets are also complaining about Trump’s criticism of them and called out Trump surrogates who are using social media to point out the bias of journalists. But, said Rasmussen, voters believe that reporters are fair game for criticism. The survey analysis said 61% of likely U.S. voters think reporters at major news organizations like CNN, Fox News, and the New York Times are public figures who deserve scrutiny. Some 19% disagree. Significantly, 51% said “it is appropriate for elected officials to criticize specific reporters and news organizations,” Rasmussen reported in the survey shared with Secrets before its release. Another 39% view the criticism as a threat to freedom of the press. That is slightly higher than the 48% who said criticism from politicians was OK back in February 2017 when Trump began singling out news organizations that were attacking him. And the public continues to view journalists as liberal. The survey said 47% believe the typical reporter is more liberal than they are. Just 19% of voters believe reporters are more conservative than they are.)

http://www.gopusa.com/?p=74988
— Google limits employees’ discussion of politics (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats are nasty. While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, my Democrat coworkers and subordinates a) frequently asked me questions to confirm that I was Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, old (born in 1948), non-poor, childless, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, Corvette owner, former union member for almost 12 years, and that my ancestors have been in America since 1844 and b) stressed the aforesaid negative information to my Democrat superiors and supervisors. They also stressed that my Democrat IRS superiors a) had not promoted me beyond GS-12, b) disallowed my education deductions in 1978, c) got rid of my mentor in 1975, and d) disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. They also stressed that my Democrat Post Office superiors had forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

— Hiring Gen Z will be different, very different (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 When I was 31 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2018 Google helped the Chinese Communists develop a social credit scoring system. The scoring system, first announced in 2014, rates China’s one billion citizens based on their behavior and associations. Already, nine million people with low scores have been blocked from buying tickets for domestic flights and trains. As horrible as this sounds the Silicon Valley tech giants are already using a similar system here in the United States. And Facebook is using offline behavior to factor into their scoring system. . .On Monday Fast Company reported on how the social credit system can happen here. It already is. Alex Jones last year lost his YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Apple accounts on a single day due to comments he made YEARS AGO. Conservatives and Conservative publishers like The Gateway Pundit are already banned or censored by Facebook, Google, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc. Conservatives and patriotic Americans have had their Chase Bank accounts shut down. Conservatives, including this writer, have been blocked from home insurance companies from purchasing their product. Conservatives have their incomes targeted and make significantly less than fake news mainstream reporters. It goes on and on. The social media scoring is already taking place. This is our future, for all of us. And we have a party of wimps who are too afraid to stop this.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A federal survey shows nearly 67 million Americans binge drink at least monthly, meaning women down four drinks during a single occasion, men five. Midwestern states have some of the highest binge-drinking rates in terms of both prevalence and intensity, putting millions of people at risk. Research links excessive alcohol use to fatty liver, cirrhosis and cancers of the breast, liver, colon, mouth and throat as well as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, anxiety and depression. Nearly half of murders involve alcohol, according to studies. Drinking kills about 88,000 people annually, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Such diseases and social ills cost the nation an estimated $249 billion a year. Even one drink a day is unhealthy, said Dr. Sarah Hartz, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis. “If you’re going to drink, know it’s not good for you.”)

ALTON DAILY NEWS

— Capitalism and liberty are essential for prosperity – Ken Calvert
https://www.ocregister.com/2019/08/08/capitalism-and-liberty-are-essential-for-prosperity-ken-calvert/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As most people know, nothing in life is free, and neither is a massive expansion of government programs. Don’t let socialists fool you — we cannot pay for their programs with just a tax hike on the wealthiest Americans. To cover the costs of the government they dream of, we’d need to impose huge tax increases on everyone from middle-class families to small business owners.)

To be “one of them,” you have to blindly serve as an operative or as a dupe from those who dominate the MTRCC. My MTRCC critics/opponents a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or e) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Simi Valley City Council member Ruth Luevanos is now facing possible recall and censure stemming from a controversial video she made in her City Hall office advising immigrants of their legal rights prior to recent ICE raids. During public comments at Monday night’s council meeting, Simi resident Joe Piechowski said he was there to serve Luevanos with a notice of intention to circulate a recall petition. Such a notice is the first formal step in a very protected recall process in which Piechowski will eventually have to gather about 11,000 signatures of Simi Valley registered voters to hold a recall election. Piechowski received conflicting signals from city officials as to serving Luevanos with the notice.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— All politics is local. It should be extremely important to you who represents you in your municipality’s government. Residents of Wheaton’s West District have been represented in Wheaton’s government by Todd Scalzo for the last 10 years, but Scalzo has resigned.

It would be great if the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) would host a candidate forum for the seven Republican candidates who are seeking appointment to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy.

Those seven candidates are Edward Ahern, Jeffery Antonelli, Angela Blatner, Dave Diersen, Nancy Harding, Mark Kmiecik, and Robert McNeily.

Hopefully, all of the aforesaid seven candidates will a) attend MTRCC’s 7:00 PM Wednesday August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, b) announce their candidacies, c) and seek the support of the eighteen Republican Precinct Committeemen who represent Wheaton’s West District.

Those eighteen Precinct Committeemen are Joseph Caruso, Dave Diersen, Thomas Elsner, Arthur Grant, Ralph Hinkle, Marty Keller, John Kocinski, Robert Krzyzewski, Michael Hinsdale, Jae Kwon, Robert Larsen, Connor McCarthy, Robert McNeily, Ronald Menna, Elizabeth Tatro, James Ryan, Mark Thomas, and Herbert Wehling.

Hopefully, MTRCC will gather relevant information about the aforesaid seven candidates and provide that information to the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen.

The goal of the candidate forum and providing information on the candidates is to help the aforesaid eighteen Precinct Committeemen recommend to Wheaton’s City Council the best possible candidate to be appointed to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy.

Many Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders routinely attend MTRCC meetings. I hope that the following will attend MTRCC’s August 14 meeting and a candidate forum if one is held: a) 6th Congressional District candidates Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti; b) DuPage County Recorder candidates Ron Almiron and Babette Holder; c) Wheaton’s mayor and City Council members; d) Illinois officials including Amy Grant; e) DuPage County officials including Robert Berlin, Fred Bucholz, Daniel Cronin, Pete DiCianni, Grant Eckhoff, Timothy Elliott, Robert Grogan, Gwen Henry, Richard Jorgensen, Christopher Kachiroubas, Robert Larsen, Paula McGowen, James Mendrick, Al Murphy, Sean Noonan, Jeffrey Redick, Darlene Ruscitti, Timothy Whelan, and Jim Zay; f) Milton Township officials including Sal Falbo, Chris Heidorn, Gail Hinkle, Marty Keller, Chris LeVan, Gary Muehlfelt, David Molitor, John Monino, and Yada Nathwani; g) Wheaton Park District officials including Michael Benard; h) School District 200 officials; and i) College of DuPage officials including Annette Corrigan, Christine Fenne, Heidi Holan, and Frank Napolitano.

It will be extremely interesting to see which of the seven candidates are endorsed by which of the aforesaid candidates, elected officials, and party leaders, and especially which candidates Ives and Sanguinetti might endorse because they have served on Wheaton’s City Council. – Dave Diersen

— Are you a name-caller? – John Borling (DIERSEN: I had the honor of helping organize the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) 2003 Oktoberfest fundraiser and I organized the straw poll for U.S. Senate at that event in which John Borling competed against Chirinjeev Kathuria, Andy McKenna, Jim Oberweis, Steve Rauchenberger, Jack Ryan, and Jonathan Wright. About 600 attended that event and about 400 participated in the straw poll. Those who sponsored tables, took out ads in the MTRCC directory, and/or contributed auction items included the aforesaid candidates and Arndt, Birkett, Bolds, Bucholz, Carlson, Carney, Cox, Cronin, Diersen, Dillard, Dwyer, Eckhoff, Elsner, Falbo, Fawell, Flickinger, Glen Ellyn Republican Women, Gresk, Gumm, Heidorn, Henry, Hinkle, Hultgren, Hyde, Illinois Center Right Coalition, Illinois Republican Party, Jacobsen, Kachiroubas, Kilander, King, Kleeman, Leston, Lofgren, Marquardt, Moore, Muehlfelt, B.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/dan-gainor-media-go-far-beyond-trump-derangement-syndrome-in-attacking-president
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Will your Republican township, ward, and county party organizations hold straw polls at their upcoming fundraisers? In the past, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) straw polls at its Oktoberfest fundraisers had a big impact and raised lots of money for MTRCC. I organized those straw polls. MTRCC has not asked me to organize a straw poll for its October 3, 2019 Oktoberfest fundraiser. Contested primary races include Ives v. Sanguinetti and Almiron v. Holder.) 
https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/democrats-2020-iowa-state-fair-food-fried-mary-anne-marsh
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Beyond the fried food on a stick and the iconic Butter Cow, another big attraction at the Iowa State Fair is the unscientific straw poll open to all attending the fair. In 2015, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump ran away with the poll. Hillary Clinton won the Iowa caucus and Trump came in a very close second behind Ted Cruz. Trump and Clinton eventually faced one another in the general election. This week’s straw poll is a reminder that the 2020 campaign is much further along than most people, and even many candidates, realize. The fact is elections — and the nomination process — are won in June, July and August. With only 182 days until the Iowa caucuses, Warren and Harris are on the rise, Biden and Sanders are fading, and the rest of the field is fried on a stick.)

Unlike me, you are more likely to be Democrat the more educated that you are. I have a bachelor’s degree (1970), three master’s degrees (1976, 1980, and 1997), six professional certifications (1979, 1981, 1990, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and a professional license (1981). But all of the aforesaid are in management, accounting, or finance. Unlike me, you are more likely be Republican if you attend church services. I should write a book about churchgoers in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me because I am not a member of a church, I do not attend church services, and I do not give money to a church like they do.)

Consequently, ever-increasingly, the Trump-haters in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois dismiss me, belittle me, badmouth me, ostracize me, insult me, demonize me, denigrate me, condemn me, and even worse things. If they thought that there was any chance that the Wheaton City Council might appoint me to fill the West District City Council vacancy, they would work even harder to destroy me. I should write a book about those in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois a) who are Trump-haters and b) who fear Trump-haters.) 
https://nypost.com/2019/08/11/were-all-in-the-closet-trumps-hamptons-supporters-go-underground/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While Trump attended two big-money fundraisers for the Republican Party and his 2020 re-election campaign at mansions in Southampton and Bridgehampton on Friday, many of his East End supporters are eschewing the spotlight — especially after last week’s calls for boycotts of billionaire Stephen Ross’ gyms because he hosted the president. “We are all in the closet,” said a boutique owner in Southampton who fears reprisals from his customers — most of them moneyed Democrats — if he speaks openly about his allegiance to Trump. “It’s like you have this disease and people want to run away from you.” A builder based in Westhampton worried that his customers would boycott his services if he reveals his support of the president. “People have really strong opinions here and if you go around wearing a MAGA hat, you really need to fear physical violence,” he said, adding the anti-Trump aggression comes mostly from summer residents. Trump won 51.5 percent of the vote among year-round residents of Suffolk County in the 2016 election, compared to 44.6 percent for Democrat Hillary Clinton. In 2008 and 2012, most of the county voted for Barack Obama. Despite the recent shift, many of Trump’s core supporters fear speaking out, especially during the summer months, when beachfront villages from Westhampton to Montauk are filled with left-leaning visitors from New York City.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— AS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S STRANGLEHOLD ON ILLINOIS, ON COOK COUNTY, AND ON CHICAGO TIGHTENS: Meet the people working to kick Chicago out of Illinois – Cindy Dampier (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Democrats who run Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago make it clear that they want each and every individual, organization, and company that is a Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time TO LEAVE ILLINOIS.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/ct-life-illinois-state-secession-movement-0801-20190801-iesnu74ogvfjxfk35sn72lq7ya-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the past two years, the movement to divide the state of Illinois into two states — Cook County in one, the other 101 counties in the other — has been gaining support. In February, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker was pursuing an agenda for Illinois that included new tax and abortion policies, Halbrook refiled a resolution in the state legislature, HR 101, in which he and six co-sponsors asked the U.S. Congress to recognize Chicago as the 51st state. “I hear it a lot from my constituents, that we need to be separate from Chicago,” Halbrook says. “I thought yep, this is what we need to do.” The resolution, which could be dismissed as simple political maneuvering — plays big at home, but has scant chance of seeing daylight in the legislature — is also backed by several grassroots groups agitating for separation. One of them, Illinois Separation, founded by Collin Cliburn, of Athens, has 24,000 followers on Facebook, and growing. Cliburn is also holding events at venues from wineries and gun shops to community centers around the state through August and September to capitalize on the cause’s momentum.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Pritzker vows to ‘root’ out parents scamming system for college financial aid for their kids: ‘Shame on you’ “If people are defrauding the system, these wealthy parents are literally committing fraud here,” the governor said. “We need to go find them, root it out and make sure that those dollars go to the right people.” – Tina Sfondeles (DIERSEN: How much debt did/could your parents take on to pay for your college expenses? I never expected my outstanding parents to take on any debt to pay for my college expenses. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, he was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, he never attended college, he worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and he did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line Chevy. My mother never attended high school.)

I should write a book about past and present politicians a) who have represented me at the federal, state, county, township, and local levels and b) who have not returned my phone calls.)

I never expected my outstanding parents to take on any debt to pay for my college expenses. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, he was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, he never attended college, he worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and he did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line Chevy. My mother never attended high school.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-college-financial-aid-guardianship-loophole-and-the-woman-who-thought-it-up-11564595984
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The college consultant who developed a strategy to help wealthy clients access scholarships designed for the poor said she came up with the idea after seeing how much debt parents were taking on to send their children to college. Lora Georgieva, owner of a consulting company called Destination College, said she has been explaining to families for the past two years that if they legally transferred the guardianship of their college-bound children to a friend or family member, the teens would be considered independent for the purposes of financial aid. That means they wouldn’t have to declare their parents’ income or assets, making it possible for them to collect state, federal and college scholarships reserved for students from poor families. The strategy was the topic of a Page One article Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Georgieva hadn’t responded to requests for comment for that article, but subsequently spoke Tuesday night with a Journal reporter about her operation. The U.S. Education Department condemned Ms. Georgieva’s actions and said it was moving to stop them.)

— 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.)

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.)

http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: I will be seeking appointment to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019. Applicants are asked to identify the three most important issues that Wheaton needs to address in the next 2 years and how those issues should be addressed. I would greatly appreciate your input. Please email me at [email protected] or phone me at 630-653-0462. At its two most recent meetings, I urged Wheaton’s City Council to be the first city in Illinois to ban the sale of pot. I served on the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee 2003-2011. My wife and I have lived in Wheaton since 1978 and in its West District since 1984. I have served as the Republican Precinct Committeeman for Precinct 9 since 1999. Since 2000, as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor, I have put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sent them out. 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. I served on the Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter Executive Committee for 13 years. I 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. I have a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT, a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul, an MBA from Loyola, and a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU. I am a Forensic Accountant, Certified Financial Services Auditor, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Fraud Examiner, Licensed CPA, and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA).

(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.)

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?)
