CHAMPAIGN/URBANA NEWS GAZETTE
— Democrats are hurting Illinois – BOB MARTENSEN, Loda
https://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/letter-to-the-editor-democrats-are-hurting-illinois/article_87e4f305-7ece-5cd6-b0b3-d73d3744ff25.html
(FROM THE LETTER: Democrats have proven, once again, that they lack the mental capacity to govern. Democrats do not want a girl 20 years and 364 days old to smoke cigarettes, because cigarettes are not healthy. Democrats want that girl, one day later, to smoke all the marijuana she can, because marijuana is, they say, healthy and they can tax it. Democrats cannot find the time to read nor understand the proposed laws upon which they vote to approve. Democrats cannot understand how a provision that greatly increases their salaries just happened to be in a bill that they approved. Democrats cannot find the money to pay the debts to vendors who provide goods and services to the state. Democrats can find the money to pay homage to their king, $40 million for two schools in House Speaker Michael Madigan’s district, $50 million to his wife’s Illinois Arts Council. Democrats believe that an unborn child must not have individual rights under the law. People are permanently leaving Illinois by the tens of thousands, business and manufacturing plants are closing or not even thinking of Illinois as a location. The Democrats’ answer is taxes, taxes and more taxes. Raise taxes, don’t pay your bills, place the money in your pockets equals mental incapacity.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On recruiting, there have been similar successes. In places that Republicans need to win, they have recruited top tier candidates who give them the absolute best shot to do so. Candidates like Nicole Malliotakis in the 11th District of New York, Ashley Hinson in the 1st District in Iowa, Evelyn Sanguinetti in the 6th District of Illinois, Kathy Landing in the 1st District of South Carolina and Amanda Makkei in the 13th District of Florida.)

AMERICAN GREATNESS
— The Cowardice of the College Republicans – Eric Lendrum (DIERSEN: Should I try to get the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, the DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and the Illinois Republican Party to pass resolutions a) AGAINST the promotion of LGBTQ activity, b) AGAINST the promotion of abortion, c) AGAINST the promotion of mass/illegal immigration, d) AGAINST the promotion of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, e) AGAINST the diminution of First and Second Amendment rights, f) AGAINST the promotion of patronage, g) AGAINST the promotion of political affiliation discrimination, h) AGAINST the promotion of reverse discrimination, and i) AGAINST the promotion of age discrimination?)
https://www.amgreatness.com/2019/07/06/the-cowardice-of-the-college-republicans/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: One would think that in the age of a massively successful Republican president like Donald Trump, most conservative college organizations would be rushing to hitch their wagons to his rising star. But as it turns out, the ignorance and naivety of the Republican elite is not limited to members of Congress. For the upcoming annual gathering of the College Republican National Committee (CRNC), national chairman Chandler Thornton has laid out his vision for the organization’s upcoming conference in his debut op-ed at Fox News. What exactly is Thornton’s big plan for College Republicans as the 2020 election rapidly approaches? Working to curb mass immigration? Speaking out against blatant Big Tech censorship of the Right? Opposing the Left’s ongoing push for the legalization of infanticide? Condemning the domestic terrorism of Antifa? No. At this year’s CRNC conference—happening July 11-14—delegates will be voting on a symbolic resolution to condemn white nationalism, which Thornton claims is contributing to a “toxic problem” within the GOP.)

— Conservative grad shares her story: ‘I’ve spent the last four years defending myself’ – Kathryn Hinderaker (DIERSEN: If I had been a member of a Republican club while I attended Crete-Monee High School 1962-1966, the Democrats who ran the Post Office would not have hired me in 1966. If I had been a member of a Republican club while I attended UIC 1966-1968 and/or NIU 1969-1970, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have hired me in 1971. If I had been a member of a Republican club while I attended Loyola 1972-1976, the Democrats who ran IRS would not have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974. If I had been a member of a Republican club while I attended DePaul 1976-1980, the Democrats who ran GAO would not have hired me in 1980 or promoted me in 1986. If I had been a member of a Republican club while I attended IIT 1992-1997 the Democrats who ran GAO would have forced me to take their early retirement “offer” much sooner than they did.) 
https://alphanewsmn.com/conservative-grad-shares-her-story-ive-spent-the-last-four-years-defending-myself/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I just graduated from St. Olaf College after receiving an education I didn’t expect. That’s because as a conservative at my small, Minnesota-based liberal arts institution, I’ve spent the last four years defending myself against personal and political attacks from professors and peers alike. The most recent example came in late April as the St. Olaf College Republicans hosted scholar Heather Mac Donald for a talk on her new book, “The Diversity Delusion: How Race and Gender Pandering Corrupt the University and Undermine Our Culture.” As chair of the group, I fielded many angry emails, including this from a theater professor: “This speaker is dangerous. It’s not about a difference in idealogical [sic] perspectives. This rhetoric is dangerous and puts my Black body in danger. This is antithetical to the St. Olaf mission statement. I’m not okay with this… and you all shouldn’t be either.” Several more professors emailed similar sentiments. This example is no outlier. In early 2018, college administrators shot down an effort to bring Ben Shapiro to campus for a speech. The officials denied the request by saying Shapiro was too divisive to bring to St. Olaf on the date in question. (It was the one-year anniversary of a racial protest on campus). They promised Shapiro could come at some unknown future date, but months of student organizing and planning were essentially wasted. Shapiro never made it to St. Olaf College. Also last year, our College Republicans’ display called “Why I’m a Conservative” was torn down by students upset by its messaging. They were apparently triggered by expressions such as “All human life has value,” “Facts > feelings,” “I love economic freedom” and “I pay taxes.” All these incidents spring from the prevailing ideology on campus, which was perhaps most evident the day after President Donald Trump was elected. The campus was in a tailspin. Several professors cried in front of their classes. Some canceled class altogether. Students openly wept in the quad. Protests broke out at a moment’s notice.)
