(FROM THE ARTICLE: You might have been asked recently to sign a petition to put a candidate on the ballot in 2020. It’s that season and, though a truism, if good people don’t run for office, democracy doesn’t work. You ought to try running. Here’s how. . .There are four resources in every campaign: people, skill, money and time. Every candidate has at least some of one or more of those resources. . .Today, the guidance would be to build your friends on Facebook. Your friends become volunteers, funders and word-spreaders — your “organization.” Don’t expect any help from your local political party organization, which is likely on life support. You and your friends also have skills, maybe at running a small business, which is basically what a campaign is about — setting up a small business that lasts about one year. You write a campaign plan, much like a business plan. In the plan, you establish a vote-total goal and where those votes are located; how to reach them; how much it will cost, and how to raise the requisite amount. Depending upon the office you seek, your plan might simply be in your head, or in a thick three-ring binder. But there has to be a plan. Political consultant Steve Shearer of Peoria observes that 90 percent of the candidates who spend more money than their opponents win. So, money is important, though obviously not controlling in all cases. . .The Illinois State Board of Elections website offers a complete Candidate’s Guide, which walks you through the filing requirements. The key to success, from Lincoln’s day to the present, is effective strategy (the plan), not tactics (specific tasks). . .Steve says winning is about strategy, message and image. Strategy is based on such factors as analysis of recent voting returns, the issues that move voters in your constituency, both candidates’ (including the opponent) strengths and weaknesses. From that comes the plan to achieve your vote-total goal.)

— When God Is Your Portfolio Manager Biblically responsible investing is booming, as some Christians move to match their faith with their stock buys – Jason Zweig
https://www.wsj.com/articles/when-god-guides-your-investment-portfolio-11570811305
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What would Jesus buy? That question is spreading in the investing world, as evangelicals and other Christians seek investment management and financial planning to match their interpretation of biblical principles. The latest sign of the rise of faith-based investing was the launch of the Inspire International ESG exchange-traded fund on Sept. 30. Its ticker symbol? WWJD, short for the popular expression “What would Jesus do?” Many socially responsible investors favor companies that recruit LGBT workers or donate to Planned Parenthood and the like. By contrast, biblically responsible investors shun companies that profit from or support abortion, pornography, gambling, or LGBT issues. No matter what you believe or how you invest, the advent of this approach highlights the promise and perils of socially responsible investing in general: You can salve your conscience, or you can earn higher returns. It isn’t likely you can do both. Biblically responsible investing, or BRI, is booming as investment managers who are losing assets to index funds strive to find new niches.)

https://www.prnewsonline.com/journalists-media-relations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Embargo Just because a PR firm distributes a press release with the words “Embargoed Until” atop it doesn’t mean that a reporter will honor it. Most will, but it’s always good to have someone speak to the journalist and request she agree to honor the embargo. Scientific studies sent to specific editors are an exception. The same is true for releases saying “For Release After.” PR pros should know that once a release is distributed, when it is used is up to editors. Off-the Record You can tell a media member that something is “off-the-record,” but it doesn’t mean a reporter considers it so. Establish off-the-record ground rules upfront. Specifically, do so prior to conveying information you want kept off-the-record. ‘If you don’t want it reported, don’t say it’ is the advice I always give to executives before interviews or when they socialize with the media. Recall Madeleine Westerhout, President Trump’s personal assistant, who “quit” or was fired after making comments during a dinner. The event supposedly was off-the-record.)

If you were me, how would you react when the aforesaid candidates regularly open my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and click on links in those emails? 
https://politicalresources.com/for-candidates/campaign-how-to-library/60-campaign-how-to/voter-contact-media-relations/135-how-to-write-campaign-press-releases

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 4. Identify the decision makers at the media that are key for your campaign and develop a relationship with them. Get to know what issues they think are important in the election and feed them information on those issues. . .6. As much as possible, treat all media equally. Don’t discount a reporter because she or he works for a weekly.)

— Even Amid Low Unemployment, Many Workers Struggle Finding A Job – Christian Weller (DIERSEN: What has frustrated your job searches? Since 1997, the following things have frustrated my job searches: In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer.” Previous to that, they 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. They would not have taken the aforesaid adverse actions against me if I had been a Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran.)

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/average-american-net-worth-170900426.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The data presented some notable trends within net worth. Older Americans typically possessed a higher net worth than younger Americans, according to the U.S. Census Bureau study. The median net worth for householders over the age of 65 was $170,516, while the median net worth for those under 35 was only $6,676. The median net worth also changed based on the education level of householders. For householders with no high school diploma, the study found a median net worth of $9,800. The study indicated a median value of $43,945 for high school graduates. Householders with some level of college, but no degree, generated a median net worth of $49,082. For householders with an associate’s degree, the median net worth was $56,512. Those who earned a bachelor degree generated a median value of $147,148. Finally, for householders with a professional or graduate degree, the median net worth was $240,750. Net Worth by Region The study also featured regional trends in median American net worth. The regions studied included the Northeast, Midwest, South and West. The median household net worth value for those in the Northeast was $91,025, while it was $81,049 for those in the Midwest.

— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Those in Will County affected by war on drugs could see help becoming marijuana entrepreneurs – ALEX ORTIZ (DIERSEN: Wheaton is the DuPage County Seat. The Democrats who run the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (IDCEO) have outrageously designated western Wheaton as being a disproportionately impacted area (DIA), that is, an area that has high rates of arrest, conviction, and incarceration related to cannabis as well as poverty and unemployment. Needless-to-say, that must be a mistake. I ask the following and everyone else who has an interest in Wheaton to ask the IDCEO to immediately rescind its DIA designation: Wheaton Mayor and City Council members, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township officers and trustees, DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board members, and federal and Illinois officials who represent or seek to represent any part of Wheaton.)
https://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2019/10/01/those-in-will-county-affected-by-war-on-drugs-could-see-help-becoming-marijuana-entrepreneurs/aalze98/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state has designated parts of Will County as “disproportionately impacted” by the war on drugs, which could help local applicants seeking commercial marijuana licenses. Gov. JB Pritzker’s administration released a map of the state this week showing the areas where the state wants to provide opportunities for applicants to benefit from the legalized recreational marijuana industry. The map shows large parts of Joliet, along with smaller parts of Crest Hill, Lockport, Bolingbrook and University Park, as designated areas.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-ice-chicago-immigration-santuary-cities-raids-20190926-ngmxwhe5fzb6jmbgwelfhppati-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Of course we know that we’ve hurt (ICE agents) and hurt their ability to do their job here in the city, but so be it,” Lightfoot told the crowd of protesters who gathered around her. “That’s the point.” Chicago’s sanctuary city ordinance bars police from giving federal ICE officials access to people in local custody.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Harvard economist Raj Chetty says that, for white Americans, achieving the American dream is like climbing an income ladder. “If you’ve climbed up in one generation, that’s basically where you’re going to start the next generation, and then you can climb up further.” But for black Americans, and black men in particular, “it’s like being on a treadmill, where even after you’ve climbed up in one generation, there are tremendous structural forces that make it highly likely you’re going to fall back down in the next generation and then you have to make the climb again.”)

— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)

Suess and Wheaton City Council Members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Christopher J. Zaruba did not select me to fill the West District vacancy. They did not pick me to be one of the three finalists.

They would stress those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. They would hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the aforesaid, a) that I certainly do not represent the majority of the West District’s residents; b) that the majority of Wheaton’s West District residents are stoners or want to be stoners, anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time; and c) that I should be driven out of Wheaton’s West District, driven out of Wheaton, driven out of Milton Township, driven out of DuPage County, and driven out of Illinois.)

Gillibrand launched a t-shirt giveaway at a time when she needs approximately 15,000 additional unique donors to qualify for the third round of Democratic primary debates. She began offering first-time donors a campaign t-shirt retailing at $30 in exchange for a $1 contribution in August.)

They know full-well a) that to be a lobbyist, you must be paid to lobby and b) that I am not paid to lobby.) 
https://sentinelcolorado.com/news/metro/aurora-city-council-approves-new-ethics-law-opposes-lobbying-registration/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite taking other legislative steps toward greater transparency, a majority of Aurora City Council members decided against an ordinance mandating lobbyists register with the city if working in Aurora. Council members Bob Roth, Johnny Watson, Marsha Berzins, Francoise Bergan, Charlie Richardson and mayor Bob LeGare opposed the proposed ordinance. At-large councilwoman Angela Lawson, who also works for the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, first introduced the idea to a city policy committee in October. LeGare said he didn’t believe the ordinance was ready, but council member Nicole Johnston rebutted that claim citing Lawson’s past year of work. None of the other council members who voted against the measure — all of which are running for re-election — gave a reason for their vote. The registration wouldn’t have limited or penalized lobbyists or city officials for interacting with each other. It would instruct lobbyists to file quarterly reports about their lobbying efforts, however. Those reporters would disclose “any expenditure over $75 directly benefiting a covered official,” according to city documents. “This does not prohibit expenditures over $75, it only requires reporting.” Several city council members cited concerns of who would qualify as a lobbyist and whether non-profit organizations attempting to seek influence on the city council would be required to register under the proposed rules. Under the ordinance, lobbyists were defined to be “any individual, including an attorney, who is self-employed or is employed or otherwise retained by any other person or organization: (1) For the purpose of engaging in lobbying; or (2) Whose scope of work requires him or her to lobby from time to time time.” During the meeting, the body unanimously gave a final approval to a new ethics code for elected city officials. The now-approved ordinance is the result of two different proposals from several city council members who sought stronger ethics rules for elected officials of the city. It tasks an independent panel of judges with investigating ethical complaints, prohibits the mayor and city council members from accepting gifts valued more than $300, and prevents council members from engaging in conflicts of interest.)

FLORIDA POLITICS
— House dismisses complaint against NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer Democratic Rep. Anna Eskamani filed the complaint in the House. – Ryan Nicol (DIERSEN: Constructively, my nasty, bombastic, rude, threatening critics/opponents publicly, falsely, and slanderously charged me at the August 20 DuPage County Development Committee meeting with failing to register as a lobbyist. I should sue them.)
https://floridapolitics.com/archives/304284-house-dismisses-complaint-hammer
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Florida House dismissed a complaint against National Rifle Association (NRA) lobbyist Marion Hammer that had alleged Hammer failed to properly report lobbying compensation. Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani filed the complaint in the House. A similar complaint in the Senate, filed by Sen. Perry Thurston, went nowhere. GOP state Rep. Tom Leek, who chairs the House Public Integrity and Ethics Committee, did note Hammer had run afoul of Joint Rule 1.4 of the Legislature. That rule requires disclosure of compensation from lobbying firms: “Unified Sportsmen of Florida (USF) is a lobbying firm and fail(ed) to file compensation reports for the NRA fees received.” But he said Hammer took appropriate action to avoid sanction, and determined “the complaint does not state facts supporting a finding of probable cause.” “You have taken the appropriate corrective action, and consistent with Joint Rule 1.5 and past practices, no further penalty will be imposed,” the Ormond Beach attorney said in a letter explaining the findings. In a statement, Hammer said she was “very pleased that the House complaint has also been dismissed.” She added: “I have been a registered lobbyist since 1974 … I have never told anyone EVER that I am not a lobbyist. Since the filings for Unified Sportsmen of Florida are really a non-issue, we would have filed from the beginning had we not been advised to the contrary. “When you seek and rely upon legal advice, you do so in good faith. That’s exactly what we did. We now have a different legal opinion and USF has fully complied based on the new information and advice.”)
