I would focus past and present activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://www.thedailybeast.com/operation-targeting-journalists-seen-unfavorable-to-trump-is-allied-with-the-white-house-nyt

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Allies of President Trump have reportedly constructed an operation to discredit journalists viewed as being unfavorable towards the president, the New York Times reports. The operation run by conservative operatives has reportedly scoured more than a decade of social media history from reporters who are seen as hostile towards Trump, in order to find potentially damaging posts that can be used against them in the court of public opinion. According to four people familiar with the operation who spoke to the Times, the operation has compiled dossiers of information on journalists from some of the country’s most prominent news organizations with the intent of publicizing damaging social media posts or statements.)

— 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).)

HOT AIR
— NRA Sues San Francisco (DIERSEN: I should sue those who hint/imply/argue/shout that I falsely claim to be a journalist. They stress that I do not have a degree in journalism, that I am not paid for what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, that I do not claim to be nonpartisan, that GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are free, that GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails contain no advertising, that GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails contain no pictures, that I am a Republican Precinct Committeeman, and the times that activists, organizations (including the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party), companies (including Google, Daily Herald, Chicago Tribune, Wheaton Leader, and Naperville Sun), governments (including Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois), candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. have treated me like a am not a journalist.)

— Beto: Living Close To Where You Work Should Be A Right For Everyone (DIERSEN: I lived in the Outer Drive East building in downtown Chicago and walked to work at IRS 1974-1978. In today’s dollars, my IRS salary was $82,579 in 1974, $85,333 in 1975, $88,086 in 1976, $90,839 in 1977 and 1978. I had earned a bachelor’s degree in management from NIU in 1970 and an MBA from Loyola in 1976. I started taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul in 1976.)

NOQ REPORT
— One America News slaps MSNBC, Comcast with $10 million slander lawsuit – CQ Livingston (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes talk and/or act like they can defame and slander me because I am a “public figure.” If I sued them, they would have to prove that I am a “public figure.” That would be difficult for them because they have always hinted/implied/argued/shouted that no one reads GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

MEXICAN OCCUPATION
— The Mexican Invasion and Occupation: Mexico Builds the LA RAZA “THE RACE” Supremacist Welfare State. THE LA RAZA CRIME TIDAL WAVE – “These figures do not attempt to allege that foreign nationals in the country illegally commit more crimes than other groups,” the report states. “It simply identifies thousands of crimes that should not have occurred and thousands of victims that should not have been victimized because the perpetrator should not be here.” – CHARLOTTE CUTHBERTSON

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. My Social Security is $2,118/year. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes should be required to disclose the source and amount of their income.) 
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.)

— How Americans are saving for retirement and how much they have stashed away – Brittany De Lea (DIERSEN: I saved for retirement a) by qualifying for Social Security, b) by putting 7% of my federal salary into the Civil Service Retirement System, and c) by putting the maximum into tax deferred retirement accounts. 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.)

— Student debt forgiveness isn’t worth a toxic workplace – Michelle Singletary (DIERSEN: While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, they increasingly made the office toxic for its employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and who had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I made a promise to myself early in my career. If my job ever became so unbearable that I got stomach cramps at just the thought of walking into the office, it was time to quit. But what if staying in your crummy job is the only way to have tens of thousands of dollars in student debt forgiven? This is the issue vexing a reader, who asked me during a recent online discussion: Should I stay or should I go? “I’m a federal employee with five years left to loan forgiveness,” the person wrote. “I work in a toxic office and have been trying for several years to find a job in a different agency. I was recently offered a two-year term position that would be in a new practice area with supervisory responsibility and a fairly significant pay raise. But I would lose the ‘golden handcuffs’ of virtually guaranteed employment and risk losing six-figure loan forgiveness if I don’t find a permanent position during the two years. Is it worth it?”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: China effectively expelled a Wall Street Journal reporter from the country, one month after the newspaper published a report detailing allegations that a cousin of Chinese leader Xi Jinping was involved in high-stakes gambling and potential money laundering in Australia. Chinese authorities told the Journal on Friday it would not renew press credentials for Chun Han Wong, a Singapore national who has covered Chinese politics out of the paper’s Beijing bureau since 2014. Those credentials expired Friday. China sometimes withholds or refuses visas to punish international news organizations for what the ruling Communist Party perceives as unfavorable coverage. But the decision amounted to the first time in recent memory that the Chinese government has effectively turfed out a reporter from the Journal, a publication generally known for incisive but evenhanded coverage of the country.)

She’s no stranger to taking on the entrenched interests of the party establishment and has proven again and again to be a grassroots favorite. This should come as no surprise at a time when all too many Republicans are prone to cede ground on the issue of fiscal responsibility. Ives has instead made sticking up for the Illinois taxpayer a cornerstone of her platform.)
