GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Diersen asks the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) to host a candidate forum for the Republican Wheaton West District City Council candidates at its 7:00 PM Wednesday August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, or alternatively, during the following 2 weeks.

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

Diersen asks MTRCC to provide relevant information about the aforesaid candidates to its members who represent Republican voters in Wheaton’s West District. Those MTRCC members 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.

The goal of the candidate forum and providing information on the candidates is to help the aforesaid Wheaton West District MTRCC members recommend 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: 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.

Further, I ask MTRCC to brief its members at the meeting on actions being taken to ban the sale of pot in DuPage County’s unincorporated areas and in Wheaton, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Downers Grove, Naperville, Warrenville, West Chicago, and the rest of the 38 municipalities in DuPage County. – Dave Diersen

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Republican Jeanne Ives jumps in Congress race for Democratic Rep. Casten seat Before Ives, a former state representative who lost a primary bid against former Gov. Bruce Rauner, can face Casten she must beat Evelyn Sanguinetti, who was Rauner’s running mate. – Lynn Sweet
https://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/2019/7/18/20699794/republican-jeanne-ives-jumps-in-congress-race-democratic-rep-casten-seat-illinois
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The match-up will be the biggest GOP primary for Congress in Illinois. With no fanfare, Ives filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday. . .In a big of a pre-emptive strike against Ives, Sanguinetti released on Monday the names of 40 Republicans who back her, including Rep. 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. Sanguinetti, who jumped in the race in April, has $69,890 cash-on-hand. Rauner donated $2,800 as did his wife, Diana, who gave $2,800. Sanguinetti also loaned her campaign $5,000.)

(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.)

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.”)
