When did your ancestor come to America? Mine came during the 1840s and 1850s. What were they doing in 1919? On my father’s side, they were operating Crete’s only hardware store. On my mother’s side, they were operating a farm in Grant Park on the Indiana border.)

— Sick, Exhausted Agents Stoke Exodus Fear Amid Migrant Surge – Michaela Ross (DIERSEN: I was a National Treasury Employees Union member during the almost 9 years that I worked for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://about.bgov.com/news/sick-exhausted-agents-stoke-exodus-fear-amid-migrant-surge/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Job risks include exposure to tuberculosis, flu, scabies Employee assistance program seeks to help deal with stress Sergio Tinoco used to wear his Border Patrol uniform home with pride. Now, after a typical 10-hour day in heat that can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit, he says many on his team no longer wear their uniforms to or from the job. Tinoco, an agent of 14 years and U.S. military veteran, said his fellow agents in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley are repeatedly falling ill with flu. They’re also seeing scabies, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and lice from waves of about 1,200 migrants crossing through their facilities daily and are worried their uniforms will carry contagions. And that’s not all, he said: Many agents are being harassed in public. “We’re completely exhausted,” Tinoco said in an interview, not speaking in his official capacity. “It takes a toll on the human spirit.” Long work hours and exposure to diseases are driving agents to retire early and take sick leave, union officials and government watchdogs say. While public outrage has focused on the separation of families and children, overcrowding, and unsanitary conditions, policymakers are increasingly concerned about attrition and suicide among the agents on the front lines of the migrant surge. The border agency for years has struggled with attrition, but this year has been one of the toughest in the 95-year old patrol’s history. Migrant children and families crossed the border in record numbers while agents saw their pay delayed by a 35-day government shutdown. The patrol is approximately 7,000 agents short, the Government Accountability Office reported in March. More than 700 customs officers from around the country were diverted this spring when apprehensions soared to more than 130,000. That division of the border agency now faces a shortage of approximately 3,500 officers, said the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents officers.)

DCCC
— RECRUITMENT FAIL: IL-06 GOP Primary Turns Into Full-Blown Civil War
https://dccc.org/recruitment-fail-il-06-gop-primary-turns-full-blown-civil-war/

(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Firebrand conservative Jeanne Ives launches campaign for Congress after Evelyn Sanguinetti’s horrible fundraising report, setting up a rematch of the nasty 2018 Republican gubernatorial primary. Remember how we said Evelyn Sanguinetti’s week couldn’t get any worse after she got outraised 7-to-1 by Rep. Casten in her first fundraising quarter? Apparently we were wrong. After weeks of speculation, far-right conservative Jeanne Ives officially filed for Congress today in the 6th District – apparently Sanguinetti’s paltry fundraising haul couldn’t scare her off. After Sanguinetti’s ticket barely survived a brutal challenge by Ives in the 2018 Republican primary, expect another toxic race to the conservative fringes this cycle in a district that President Trump lost by seven points. Sanguinetti has already endorsed President Trump’s re-election, so who knows to what extremes Ives will drag her to over the course of a contentious primary. “Today’s announcement sets the stage for a brutal race to the conservative extreme in the 6th District between a floundering Evelyn Sanguinetti and a far-right wing Jeanne Ives,” said DCCC spokesperson Mike Gwin. “While Ives and Sanguinetti battle it out over who can bear-hug President Trump the hardest, Sean Casten will remain focused on delivering for middle-class Illinois families by working to keep down the cost of health care and lowering taxes for homeowners.”)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Community Opt-Out for Marijuana Dispensaries – David E. Smith 
https://illinoisfamily.org/marijuana-2/community-opt-out-for-marijuana-dispensaries/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Take ACTION: Ask your local mayor, village trustees, aldermen and county board members to pass an ordinance prohibiting marijuana dispensaries and marijuana businesses in your community. The Village of Morton in central Illinois is the first municipality to pass such an ordinance. Their ordinance can serve as a template for other communities: Click HERE for this sample ordinance. Once it is introduced, ask local pastors, local law enforcement officials, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists and others in the community to write letters and speak at public hearings in support of a ban on marijuana sales. Cover this entire process in your prayers. Pray especially for the wisdom of local officials who must vote on this proposal. . .Furthermore, it is important to point out that six Republicans also supported this regressive policy to make our highways less safe and to enslave our neighbors to addiction and mental illness: Illinois State Senators Jason Barickman (Bloomington), Neil Anderson (Moline), Steve McClure (Jacksonville), and Illinois State Representatives Allen Skillicorn (Crystal Lake), Lindsay Parkhurst (Kankakee), and David Welter (Morris) voted in favor of this anti-family policy. In their desperation to find a new revenue source to fix the financial mess they created (and/or to promote a so-called “social justice” antidote), these lawmakers failed sorely in their job to protect Illinois citizens.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— OUTSTANDING: Naperville City Council takes first step toward opting out of the retail sale of recreational pot – ERIN HEGARTY
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-retail-marijuana-sale-naperville-council-st-20190717-rb6gxuw4lzaetie2wupsb6vtfm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville City Council appears ready to say no the selling recreational marijuana in the city. Members voted 5-4 Tuesday to direct staff to prepare the documentation needed to opt out of the retail sale of adult-use cannabis under the terms of the new state law, which goes into effect Jan. 1. The vote came after public comment from more than 15 people, including two businesses that want permission to sell pot in the city and representatives from behavioral health centers who are opposed to it. Council members Theresa Sullivan, Patty Gustin, Paul Hinterlong, Kevin Coyne and Patrick Kelly voted to opt out of allowing the retail sale of recreational cannabis. Those voting in favor were Benny White, Judy Brodhead, John Krummen and Mayor Steve Chirico. . .Residents and council members who spoke against the selling it in Naperville said it to approve it would be contrary to the city’s positive image, detrimental to public safety and potentially harmful to youth. “There is nothing family friendly about recreational marijuana. Family friendly is Naperville’s brand,” resident Jennifer Taylor said. . .Gustin reminded her fellow council members that while there may be benefits from a medical standpoint, the sale and use of marijuana is still against the law in the eyes of the U.S. government. “This is a federally illegal product,” Gustin said. “The federal government has not legalized marijuana because it’s a drug. Selling recreational marijuana will draw the nuisance to Naperville.” With Tuesday’s vote, city staff will prepare the necessary documents for an official council vote to opt out of the retail sale of recreational marijuana later in the year. . .Councilman Coyne said allowing recreational marijuana just because the city already sells alcohol and cigarettes doesn’t make sense. “We should allow and accept marijuana because alcohol is already here. We have one bad habit in town, so we should add another? I don’t buy into that,” Coyne said. Matt Quinn, community relations coordinator with Rosecrance, said teens perceive marijuana use as less risky than they did in the past. Quinn urged council to “not be naive” about the law requiring pot consumers to be 21 or older. Teens push boundaries, he said.)

Democrats promise those who claim asylum in America tremendous government assistance, otherwise known as welfare, including free housing, free food, free clothing, free medical care, free education, free transportation, jobs, a pathway to citizenship, etc. Of course, Democrats expect, if not demand, that those who claim asylum help Democrats get rid of Republicans once and for all.)

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/corinne-weaver/2019/07/17/google-expert-senator-cruz-15-million-2020-votes-risk
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Tech’s biggest threat to democracy isn’t censorship or privacy: it’s election manipulation. At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, “Google and Censorship through Search Engines,” Dr. Robert Epstein, who researches the impact of Google, informed the hearing that “upwards of 15 million votes” were in jeopardy in the 2020 election. During his testimony, Epstein told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) that in 2016, Google gave at least 2.6 million votes to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, “through bias and search results.” He stressed that was the lowest number.)

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/07/the_best_places_to_retire_tend_conservative.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Bankrate.com just published its renowned ranking of the best and worst states for retirement. The categories rated, in order of weightings (in parentheses), include affordability (40%), wellness (25%), culture (15%), weather (15%), and crime (5%). Conspicuously, the top five states all have Republican governors, while most of the bottom states are run by Democrats. Moreover, much of the political machinery of the top states are Republican-run, allowing for coherent policies affecting affordability. The top five, in descending order, are: Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, South Dakota, and Florida. No surprise that Florida scored very well on weather and culture, but the other four states all outperform in areas where policy can have a big impact—affordability, crime and wellness. While Missouri is below par on crime ratings, that was more than offset by its top rating in affordability. Conversely, the bottom states are mostly run by the real deplorables: pandering political guttersnipes who’d take from hard-working, salt of the earth Americans to ensure all manner of freebies for illegal aliens. Indeed, sanctuary states and cities are overrepresented in the liberal laggards.)

Michelle Malkin rips ‘subversive religious racket’ protesting ICE with taxpayer cash (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Democrat Party takes control of churches. Are you a member of a church? If/when that church formally declares war on America, what will you do?)
https://www.wnd.com/2019/07/defund-lutherans-for-open-borders-now/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If you were shocked by the images of the Mexican flag flying over an Aurora, Colorado, immigration detention center this weekend, you’ll be appalled at an even more disgusting spectacle: One of the top promoters of the so-called Lights for Liberty nationwide protests by Trump-hating, ICE-bashing radicals was a nonprofit religious organization known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. As a designated “host,” LIRS played a key role in publicizing, organizing and participating in demonstrations against President Donald Trump’s deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants and their families who have ignored removal orders or skipped out on court hearings. Brazen hatred of cops, Border Patrol and ICE agents were on full display at the open borders protests fronted by LIRS and other left-wing groups, including Code Pink, CASA and CAIR. Marchers echoed the “Close the Concentration Camps” rhetoric of congressional brat pack Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. They carried signs declaring “ICE=Gestapo” and “Free the People, Burn the Camps.” It’s not just idle rhetoric. Antifa thug Willem Van Spronsen, armed with a rifle and incendiary devices, attempted to set a Tacoma ICE facility on fire on Saturday before being shot dead. He has been hailed as a “hero” and a “martyr” by fellow “progressive” travelers, while sympathetic mainstream reporters and activists look the other way. The president and CEO of LIRS, Krishanti Vignarajah, is a Sri Lankan refugee and former Michelle Obama policy director who led the Lights for Liberty event in Washington, D.C. She argues that Americans are obligated to open the floodgates at the southern border (since she turned out so great) and vehemently opposes what she calls “militant border enforcement.” To these border-sabotaging radicals, of course, any border enforcement is “militant.” LIRS sounds like just the kind of extremist group you’d expect to be kept afloat by billionaire George Soros’ big bucks. But hold on to your wallets and your American flags, folks: In 2016, LIRS relied on $64.7 million in government subsidies from taxpayers – that’s you and me – to fund a whopping 96.2 percent of its budget. LIRS is one of nine agencies that receives tens of millions of dollars to resettle refugees from around the world. The organization brags that it is “a vital arm of the United States refugee admissions program” that has worked with the State Department to import “over 500,000 refugees” to our country. One of LIRS’ most famous clients? Somalian-born Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar, whose immigration, marriage and tax fraud problems I reported on in my column last month. If only a fraction of LIRS clients share Omar’s contempt for our security and self-governance, you can see the trouble we’re in. And that’s just the caseload of one of the nine resettlement giants that together rake in an estimated $1 billion a year. In addition, the Lutheran nonprofit is one of two specially designated groups (the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is the other) that is contracted by the government to provide social services and benefits (including “psycho-educational support” and “low-cost or pro bono immigration legal assistance”) to sponsor families hosting illegal immigrant children.)

— The right to a perfect job match – LIVIA LAM (DIERSEN: What did you do to qualify yourself for better paying jobs? I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
https://thehill.com/opinion/finance/453053-the-right-to-a-perfect-job-match
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is, having a good job means more than just being matched to any job, and pushing workers to upskill won’t solve growing inequality. Even when unemployment peaked at 10.1 percent during the Great Recession, fingers also pointed to worker’s skill sets as falling short against employers’ desire for certain qualifications. But upholding a skills narrative that places the onus of employment on the shoulders of workers not only lacks relevance for those facing the greatest barriers to employment, but also limits mobility and risks exacerbating an already record-high economic inequality. To be clear, job outcomes that matter for workers include educational attainment. Research linking higher levels of education with higher earnings, better health and a longer life is well established. But because an individual’s ability to gain and maintain employment is also dependent on personal and social circumstances, systems that have a stake in both boosting workforce competitiveness and advancing equity must take into consideration these varying experiences.)

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.)

(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.”)

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.)

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.)

https://www.chicagobusiness.com/forum-ideas/consolidate-funds-and-tax-retirement-income
(FROM THE ARTICLE: To finally and decisively fix the problem, Illinois has no choice but to also eliminate unaffordable loopholes, such as its overly generous tax exemption on retirement income. Illinois is one of only three states with an income tax that exempts all retirement income from taxation. Low-income seniors in Illinois who cannot afford to stop working still pay state taxes on their income. Taxing retirement income in alignment with the federal tax code would increase equity and generate $2 billion to $3 billion annually for the state while protecting the most vulnerable seniors by exempting income under a certain threshold.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— How a Chicago Suburb Became a Center of ETFs Welcome to Wheaton, Ill., a town with a surprising connection to many of the most-important figures in the world of exchange-traded funds – Asjylyn Loder
https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-a-chicago-suburb-became-a-center-of-etfs-11562638621
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There is a gutted brick bank about an hour’s drive west of downtown Chicago that bears testament to an unusual feature of the suburb of Wheaton, Ill.: It has played an outsize role in the $6 trillion exchange-traded-fund industry. Here, longtime Wheaton residents Bruce Bond and John Southard, co-founders of the ETF powerhouse formerly known as PowerShares, are renovating new offices for their latest ETF venture, a company called Innovator. Just down the street is First Trust, the sixth-biggest ETF issuer in the U.S., with more than $76 billion in ETF assets. Not far away is Amplify ETFs, a white-label firm that has made a name for itself in niche funds. PowerShares, meanwhile, was sold in 2006 to Invesco Ltd. IVZ -1.81% , now the fourth-largest ETF issuer, with $204 billion in assets. How did Wheaton, a city of 53,000 people, become a hub of one of the fastest-growing segments of money management? Part of the story centers on Wheaton College, a Christian liberal-arts school founded by evangelical abolitionists in 1860. Often called the “Christian Harvard,” it is the alma mater of preacher Billy Graham. With roughly 2,400 undergraduates, the college also has produced, or has connections to, a surprising number of well-known ETF pioneers and innovators and their families. . .Today, the ETF industry is a palpable part of life in Wheaton. First Trust’s office south of downtown, built in 2007, is home to the city’s sixth-largest employer, and is part of the downtown revival. New restaurants and apartment complexes have opened in the past decade. The city has widened the sidewalks and made the streets more pedestrian-friendly. The town has always been well-to-do, but these days the median income is more than $95,000 a year. In the neighborhood near Wheaton College, older houses have been torn down, replaced with more luxurious homes. Of course, the ETF connection isn’t the only reason Wheaton is thriving. The greater Chicagoland area sports a sprawling financial industry, and Wheaton shares in its prosperity.)

SENTINEL SOURCE
— Vacant Keene City Council seats draw interest – Sierra Hubbard (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.)
