(FROM THE ARTICLE: The match-up will be the biggest GOP primary for Congress in Illinois.

Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.; former Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill.; former Rep. Judy Biggert, R-Ill., former Lt. Gov. Corinne Wood; DuPage County Board Chair Dan Cronin and a group of GOP township committeemen — all influential in a Republican primary. As of June 30, Casten has $899,888 cash-on-hand.

https://capitolfax.com/2019/07/18/reefer-madness-is-alive-and-well/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the early 1900s an influx of Mexican immigrants came to the US fleeing political unrest in their home country. With them, they brought the practice of smoking cannabis recreationally. And it took off. The Spanish word for the plant started to be used more often too. Marijuana. Or as it was spelled at that time, marihuana, with an “H. This is when the more sensational headlines about the drug began to appear. In 1936, a propaganda film called Reefer Madness was released. In the movie, teenagers smoke weed for the first time and this leads to a series of horrific events involving hallucination, attempted rape, and murder. Much of the media portrayed it as a gateway drug. […] Harry Anslinger took the scientifically unsupported idea of marijuana as a violence-inducing drug, connected it to black and Hispanic people, and created a perfect package of terror to sell to the American media and public. By emphasizing the Spanish word marihuana instead of cannabis, he created a strong association between the drug and the newly arrived Mexican immigrants who helped popularize it in the States. He also created a narrative around the idea that cannabis made black people forget their place in society. He pushed the idea that jazz was evil music created by people under the influence of marijuana. […] In the first full year after the Marihuana Tax Act was passed, black people were about three times more likely to be arrested for violating narcotic drug laws than whites. And Mexicans were nearly nine times more likely to be arrested for the same charge.)

— Stop Chanting ‘Send Her Back.’ Citizenship Isn’t Conditional. – JIM GERAGHTY (DIERSEN: According to David Ware (https://www.david-ware.com/blog/2018/01/when-can-the-government-revoke-your-naturalized-citizenship.shtml), naturalized citizenship can be revoked if “within 5 years of naturalization, the U.S. government proved you joined a subversive group. Such groups include Al Qaeda and the Nazi Party, for example” and “within 10 years of naturalization, you refused to testify before a U.S. congressional committee investigating your involvement in an allegedly subversive act. Subversive acts include trying to harm U.S. officials or overthrow the government.” and “you lied or concealed relevant facts in order to obtain U.S. citizenship, your citizenship could be revoked. This is called illegally procuring citizenship.”)

AMERICAN FREE PRESS
— Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee Keeps Hounding Trump
https://americanfreepress.net/watchdog-keeps-hounding-trump/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s a list of Gheen’s grievances with Trump: Trump promised a wall . . . no wall. Trump promised to end Obama’s DACA Amnesty on his first day, . . . DACA is continued by Trump. Trump promised to end birthright citizenship by executive order. . . . He did not do it. Trump said illegals had to go home. . . . Now he says they can stay and he supports amnesty bills. Trump said he would build a new deportation force to send illegals home. . . . That has not happened. Trump said he would clean up our elections, including illegal alien voters, but folded and shut down the Elections Integrity Commission headed by Kris Kobach at the first sign of resistance. Then Trump said he ordered DHS to clean up our elections’ fraud problems . . . [but it] hasn’t happened. Trump has packed his administration with pro-Amnesty Bush faction operatives while leaving most anti-illegal immigration fighters out of his staff pool. Trump promised to end sanctuary cities for illegal aliens but has not. Trump said he was sending the U.S. military to the border and ordering DHS to repel the illegal alien caravans. He said there would be no more catch and release and that the caravans would not be let in nor would be kept in tent detention facilities near the borders. But instead he is letting the caravan illegals in, and most of them are roaming free here inside the U.S. at this time with government assistance.)

— Auditor resumés don’t add up Councilors trying to get more applications (DIERSEN: Should I apply? I worked for GAO for almost 18 years; my ending salary was $127,654 in today’s dollars. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years; my ending salary was $93,592 in today’s dollars. My certifications include CPA, Internal Auditor, Government Financial Manager, and Forensic Accountant.)
http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_32728299/column-auditor-resumes-dont-add-up

(FROM THE ARTICLE: NOT MUCH has changed in the nearly four years since the Lowell City Council was last on the hunt for a City Auditor. Councilors asked to pump up the pay and post the job in multiple languages this time around, but, with the three week application period now closed, several councilors were unsatisfied with the resumés that landed in their inbox. “We did raise the salary, but we’re not attracting the candidates,” said City Councilor Rodney Elliott. Is it déjà vu all over again? The council hired Bryan Perry in March 2016, after three rounds of candidates and six months. Perry got the gig with a $101,800 starting salary and $4,500 stipend for serving on the city’s Retirement Board. When he left the city for Wilmington on June 19, he was making $105,918 annually. The most recent posting for the job offers $100,000 to $113,000, plus the stipend. It’s the first posting for the job since Perry announced his departure. Should the city offer even more, some councilors wondered? Human Relations Manager Mary Callery listed the city auditor salaries for several other communities in the state. According to Callery, the auditor in Boston earns $140,000; in Cambridge, $110,000; in New Bedford, $120,000; in Quincy, $119,000; in Springfield, $109,000; in Worcester, $135,000; in Brockton, $114,000; in Arlington, $126,000. In Wilmington, Perry will be making $121,192.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Illinois resident should urge their municipality and their county by email and at municipal and county meetings to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot ASAP. Each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is tomorrow, Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP. Similarly, each and every DuPage County resident should urge DuPage County’s Chairman and each of its board members by email (https://dupageco.org/CountyBoard/CountyBoardListing.aspx) and at board meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP.

SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Trump-haters “hope Illinois private detention ban sparks change.” (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. If you are involved in government or in politics, you should expect that sooner or later, your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes will demonize, denigrate, and condemn the town that you grew up in. I should write a book about those who have demonized, denigrated, and condemned Crete, the town a) that I lived in 1948-1972, b) that my ancestors have lived in since 1854, and c) that my brother continues to live in. They stress that while I lived in Crete, most of its residents were German American and/or Lutheran.) 
https://www.sj-r.com/news/20190713/advocates-hope-illinois-private-detention-ban-sparks-change
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some of the most vocal supporters of such detention centers have been the communities themselves. One of the first proposals was in the economically depressed community of Crete, which is near the Indiana border. “The only reason we were interested in it was because of the money. We weren’t trying to make any statement of any kind,” said longtime Crete Mayor Michael Einhorn.)

IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.

— In McConnell’s boyhood town where his family owned slaves, the reparations debate thrives NEWLY OBTAINED RECORDS SHOW THAT SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL’S FAMILY BENEFITED FROM SLAVERY FOR GENERATIONS, HELPING THEM BUILD LASTING WEALTH. – Sandy Mazza (DIERSEN: My Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government always treated me like I should pay lots of reparations because my ancestors owned many slaves. But they knew that my ancestors never owned slaves, that all my ancestors always lived in northeast Illinois, that they worked in a brick factory in Chicago, that they operated farms in Crete and Grant Park, and that they operated a hardware store in Crete.)

AIKEN STANDARD
— Three seats, seven candidates: Who’s running for Aiken City Council? – Colin Demarest (DIERSEN: Do you live in a city? If a city council seat became vacant, what factors would discourage you from running for it? For me, factors include candidates who commit to voting against the sale of pot and against video gambling in the city. In addition, candidates who commit to promoting the traditional family, right to life, immigration, Second Amendment, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Illinois Republican Party and Republican Party platforms. In addition, candidates who oppose promoting dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendments, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and even worse things. When city council vacancies occur, I believe that a) the names of applicants should be immediately released, b) all information that they submit, including completed application forms, resumes, and answers to standard questions, should be immediately released, c) a thorough background investigation should be done on each applicant, and d) one or more candidate forum should be held.)

— How long should a job search take? – ANGELA COPELAND (DIERSEN: What has hindered your job search the most? After I graduated from NIU with a bachelor’s degree in management in 1970 when I was 21 years old, it was my being draft bait. Potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment would be granted. After my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement offer in 1997 when I was 49 years old, it was the adverse actions that my Democrat superiors in the federal government had taken against me. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

PERSON COUNTY LIFE
— Roxboro council sets process for filling vacant seat – Johnny Whitfield
http://personcountylife.com/stories/roxboro-council-sets-process-for-filling-vacant-seat,23174
— Roxboro’s city council is to be commended for its openness in the selection process if will use to fill the vacant seat of the late Byrd Blackwell. – Editorial
http://www.personcountylife.com/stories/striking-a-blow-for-openness,23175
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: At a public meeting on Tuesday, Mayor Merilyn Newell laid out a very straightforward and public process that will leave the deliberations of the council open to the public. Qualified individuals will be asked to submit resumes or applications that will be reviewed by council and made available to the public for its review. The candidates will all be interviewed in an open meeting and a vote on the new council member will take place in the open. Anyone who fills a vacant seat in the middle of a term has to establish their legitimacy as a full-fledged, creditable member of the council because they were not elected directly by the voting public. But the council’s decision to hold their deliberations in public and to let the public hear from the candidates before a candidate is chosen, will go a long way torward establishing the bona fides of the eventual appointee. With Roxboro’s council currently operating without hospitalized council member Sandy Stigall, the body is at a bare minimum. The process Newell laid out earlier this week sets out a deliberate, steady process to fill the vacant seat. We encourage people interested in community service to consider putting their name in the hat. We believe that the more candidates the council has to choose from the more likely that body is to find a strong candidate who can hit the ground running. That’s important in Roxboro as the city embarks on a number of new efforts to promote land use development and economic development, among other priorities. And, fortunately for everyone else, the candidate who eventually takes the seat will be well-known by the members of the public willing to listen to the interviews and to learn more about the candidates themselves.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN NAPERVILLE SUN: BEYOND DISGUSTING, BEYOND TRAGIC: 2 companies are requesting approval to sell recreational cannabis in Naperville as city council prepares to discuss restrictions – ERIN HEGARTY (DIERSEN: For a municipality to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet. Each and every Naperville resident should urge Naperville’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.naperville.il.us/government/meet-your-city-council/) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Tuesday, July 16) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Naperville ASAP. Similarly, each and every Wheaton resident should urge Wheaton’s Mayor and each of its City Council members by email (https://www.wheaton.il.us/544/City-Council) and at City Council meetings (the next one is Monday, July 15) to vote to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton ASAP.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-recreational-pot-naperville-council-st-20190711-7v5pfadyynaqpb47nc4ou4fvue-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Before the requests from Green Thumb Industries and Grassroots Cannabis can be considered, however, the Naperville City Council must decide if they will allow pot to be sold within city limits and, if yes, what kind of restrictions should be in place and what kind of tax should be charged. The discussion will start at Tuesday’s council meeting. . .While municipal officials cannot restrict the consumption of cannabis in their towns, they can opt out of allowing adult-use cannabis dispensaries or place restrictions on such things as the number allowed and where they can be located, according to city documents. The new law allows only companies with existing medical marijuana dispensaries to begin selling recreational pot Jan. 1. Those companies will be allowed to sell cannabis from their current medical locations and one additional retail location, if approved by the municipality. There are currently 55 medical cannabis dispensaries in Illinois. Future dispensary licenses are expected to be issued by the state to non-medical license holders beginning in mid-2020. Should city council members approve the sale of recreational cannabis, Naperville officials would have to amend zoning code. The city can change its existing medical cannabis ordinance so it applies to adult-use cannabis dispensaries, city documents said. The ordinance as currently written includes language on where dispensaries are permitted and how far they must be from schools and residential areas.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— OUTSTANDING: Oak Brook looks to ban marijuana-related businesses – CHUCK FIELDMAN
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-brook/ct-dob-marijuana-business-tl-0718-20190711-xlp6k4b45bgr7jqg4kkql22wam-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Budzikowski said Thursday that at the direction of the Village Board, an amendment to the village’s zoning ordinance will be drafted and delivered to the plan commission for review, likely in September. From there, the zoning board will hold a public hearing to review the amendment and provide a recommendation to the Village Board, which probably vote in October on the amendment, Budzikowski said. The Oak Brook Village Board unanimously approved a recommendation by Police Chief James Kruger in late May to oppose what at that time was proposed legislation by the General Assembly to legalize recreational marijuana. Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the legislation into law June 25. “Oak Brook spends a lot of effort trying to be a family-friendly community, and I don’t think a marijuana dispensary, or that type of business, fits with that,” Village Board member John Baar said Thursday. Baar also said he believes not allowing marijuana-related businesses in Oak Brook goes hand-in-hand with the village not permitting video gaming. Village President Gopal Lalmalani agreed. “We want to take the high road here, just like with video gaming,” Lalmalani said Thursday. “The board doesn’t’ believe recreational marijuana is a good thing. We can’t prohibit use that the state allows, but we do have the ability to opt out of having marijuana businesses in Oak Brook.”)

— Every town should ban pot in public places Legislators thought video gambling would be limited only to bars, restaurants and veteran organizations. But video gambling machines are everywhere. – Anita Bedell, Executive Director, Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems
https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/7/8/20686445/marijuana-law-weed-legalization-smoke-free-illinois-act-ban-recreational-marijuana-dispensaries
(FROM THE LETTER: Illinois’ new marijuana law includes an exemption to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act ban on indoor smoking, and lets cities decide whether to allow on-site marijuana use at bars, restaurants, and cannabis smoking lounges, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. Rep. Kelly Cassidy and her colleagues decided that social consumption of marijuana would be allowed, but not licensed by the state, leaving that up to local officials, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Public health and safety are concerns with on-site consumption. Legislators thought video gambling would be limited only to bars, restaurants and veteran organizations. However, video gambling machines are everywhere, except in the 125 municipalities and counties where they are banned. We could see a similar situation with marijuana unless local officials pass ordinances to ban recreational marijuana dispensaries, processing, transporting, cultivation facilities and on-site consumption of marijuana in municipalities and counties. Living near marijuana dispensaries makes youth more likely to use marijuana, according to a study by the Rand Corp. Youth who use marijuana are more likely to experience negative consequences, such as increased risk of mental and physical health problems, according to the researchers. Contact your mayor, city council and county board to ask for a ban on recreational marijuana businesses and on-site consumption. Act now to protect your family and community before it is too late.)

— Still no A-List Republican to challenge Durbin (DIERSEN: On July 5, 2003, a mere 16 years ago, all five announced Republican U.S. Senate candidates: John Cox, Chirinjeev Kathuria, Andy McKenna, Jim Oberweis, and Jack Ryan) attended a picnic that I arranged in the Prairie Path Park in my precinct for voters in my precinct, in Jeanne Ive’s precinct to the east, and in Debra Olson’s precinct to the west. The 200 attendees included Randy Hultgren.)

GOPUSA
— Ilhan Omar goes after the stoner vote (DIERSEN: The Republican Party platform opposes the sale of pot. None of the Republicans who represent DuPage County in Springfield voted for the sale of pot. In Illinois, you declare your political party affiliation with the type ballot that you cast in primary elections. If you promote the sale pot, you should cast a Libertarian Party ballot. Which politicians are going after the stoner vote in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county? I should write an article about those “Republican” politicians who are going after the stoner vote in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County. They fail/refuse to call for a ban on the sale of pot in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County.) 
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=72290
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ilhan Omar renewed her call for legalizing marijuana nationwide this week, framing federal action on the issue as a matter of economic equality. In an interview with BET, the freshman Minnesota Democrat said lawmakers should “not allow for the states to pick and choose” whether to legalize the substance. “What happens

[without full legalization]

is you will have a state where someone is publicly and professionally able to profit and the next state, someone could be sent to life for it,” Omar said. “We want to make sure that there is equality in our laws. I don’t think it is just for that kind of economy to exist within this policy.” The push to legalize marijuana has gained traction in recent years. Eleven states have adopted laws allowing marijuana for recreational purposes. Dozens more, including Minnesota, approve medicinal use in some cases. But possessing or selling the substance remains a federal offense. Omar is a cosponsor of legislation that would remove the drug from the federal list of controlled substances and expunge federal convictions for marijuana possession or use. The measure is backed by a number of Democratic presidential candidates, including Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The proposal has so far failed to get a hearing in either chamber or attract support from Senate Republicans, whose votes would be needed to pass. A number of members of Minnesota’s congressional delegation, including fellow freshman Democrats Angie Craig and Dean Phillips, have previously expressed support for allowing states to legalize the substance. But Omar is the state’s only member pushing for lifting the prohibition on the federal level. Minnesota U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a presidential candidate, backs legalization but says “states should have the right to determine the best approach to marijuana within their borders.” The debate over legalization, including the economic impact of current policies, will return to the spotlight in Washington on Wednesday, when a congressional subcommittee holds a hearing on “racial justice and the need for reform” of marijuana laws.)
