TOWN COURIER
— City Councilman Robert Wu Seeks Second Term – Ellyn Wexler 
http://towncourier.com/city-councilman-robert-wu-seeks-second-term/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of the skills Wu has honed during his day job—as senior attorney at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)—have helped him become effective in his City of Gaithersburg position. “I often find myself in the role of interpreting ordinances, parsing out legalese when amendments to existing language are proposed, and, at least in one instance, actually drafting an ordinance,” he said. “At GAO,” Wu explained, “I serve in a quasi-judicial role, adjudicating bid protests filed with our office. The skillset is very similar to that used in deciding matters brought before the city council, including fairmindedness, the ability to absorb large records and ultimately render a decision.” “A firm belief that process matters” also factors into both jobs. “As companies who file protests with GAO understand, while we might not necessarily agree with them in the end, each argument raised is heard and carefully considered,” Wu said. “The same goes for my work at city council. Each individual who takes their valuable time to appear before us or submit written matters has to know that their views have been heard and seriously considered.”)

MAYO CLINIC
— Diabetes (DIERSEN: Recently, a Libertarian argued that for a diabetic like me to fail to keep their blood sugar level in control was far more damaging than smoking pot.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are beyond furious that I have a $53,316/year COLA-adjusted Civil Service Retirement System pension for life, $2,118/year COLA-adjusted Social Security for life, approximate $18,000/year federal health, dental, and vision insurance subsidy for life, retirement savings, 915 Cove Court in Wheaton, six cars and an SUV, no children to support, etc.)

TIME
— El Paso Mayor Says President Trump Called Him a RINO – BILLY PERRIGO (DIERSEN: QUESTION: What do Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, and RINOs in Republican organizations in Illinois do? ANSWER: They discourage me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out. They discourage everyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They turn everyone that they can against me, including those who run the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, those who ran the Wheaton Bowl, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) members, Wheaton City Council members, and voters in my precinct. They make false accusations against me and demonize me, denigrate me, and condemn me at MTRCC meetings. They intimidate/threaten those who might come to my defense. They discourage Republican candidates, elected officials, party leaders, and organizations from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks. They promote booze, gambling, pot, and other vices.)

WIKIPEDIA
— Negative campaigning (DIERSEN: If you seek a government office or a political office, you should expect that sooner or later, your opponents will engage in negative campaigning against you. I am seeking appointment to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. Even though there is no chance that I will be selected, my opponents in Wheaton’s West District are engaging in negative campaigning against me. At the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, two of my fellow MTRCC members in Wheaton’s West District falsely charged me with harassing the hotel’s employees. In addition, one of them, in front of an attorney, said that he was going to do everything that he could to stop everyone from reading my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_campaigning

(FROM THE POSTING: Negative campaigning or mudslinging is the process of deliberate spreading negative information about someone or something to worsen the public image of the described. Deliberate spreading of such information can be motivated either by honest desire of the campaigner to warn others against real dangers or deficiencies of the described, or by the campaigner’s dishonest ideas on methods of winning in political, business or other spheres of competition against an honest rival. The public image of an entity can be defined as reputation, esteem, respect, acceptance of the entity’s appearance, values and behavior by the general public of a given territory and/or a social group, possibly within time limits. As target groups of public and their values differ, so negativity or positivity of a public image is relative; thus, to be successful, negative campaigning has to take into account current values of the group it addresses. The degree of strictness in practicing the group’s values as opposed to its tolerance for violating the norms has also to be taken into consideration.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Rosenberg resident Delia Villarreal said citizens should have the right to express themselves. “You were voted (on council) to hear the concerns (of the people),” she said. “It’s the price you have to pay. You asked to run for city council. We got you up there. If you don’t like it, then you shouldn’t run for city council.”)

https://www.inc.com/minda-zetlin/millennials-gen-z-lie-on-resumes-more-than-baby-boomers.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But apparently, the younger you are, the likelier you are to be untruthful, at least when applying for a job. Eleven percent of Millennials said they had lied on their résumés, and 14 percent of Gen Z respondents said they’d done it. Only 2 percent of Baby Boomers said they’d ever lied on a résumé. And they don’t feel bad about it. While 54 percent of men and 42 percent of women who lied in all age groups felt guilty about doing so, only 27 percent of Millennials did. The difference may be changing attitudes about employment and employers.)

ASSOCIATION FOR TALENT DEVELOPMENT
— Don’t Make Risky Assumptions – Ken O’Quinn (DIERSEN: What assumptions do you make about those who read what you write? The only legitimate reason to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails is to get information to help defend and advance conservative Republican principles. Nevertheless, I have always been fully aware that some read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me. I should write a book those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to help them dismiss, discredit, belittle, badmouth, intimidate, insult, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn me.)

https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/lifestyle/article/2001334657/do-you-need-a-higher-degree-or-is-work-experience-sufficient
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Employers are lured by your work experience, but you must have the relevant experience to appeal to them more. Work experience should highly relate with the job that you are looking for. Your experience has to show some aspect of growth. You are more marketable when there are quantifiable results from the time and effort you put into work.)

I would focus on those who read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, but who a) fail/refuse to share relevant information with me and/or b) fail/refuse to return my phone calls. I would focus on those who dismiss me, discredit me, belittle me, badmouth me, intimidate me, insult me, demonize me, denigrate me, and/or condemn me. I would focus on those who ascribe evil motive and/or bad judgment to everything that I do or that I do not do. I would focus on those who blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who blame me for all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000. I would focus on those who forced me to sue them. I would focus on those who focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican, but who do not talk and/or act like they are religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and/or Illinois, their operatives, and their dupes.)

August 3 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Why hasn’t the Daily Herald reported on a) the sale of pot in Wheaton, b) the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy, and c) the Roosevelt Road Corridor Study since May 30, 2019? FIRST: At its August 5, 2019 meeting, Wheaton’s City Council is scheduled a) to vote on “a resolution and draft ordinance relating to a text amendment to zoning ordinance prohibiting cannabis business establishments in any zoning district” and b) to set “August 26 as the Public Hearing date.” (https://www.wheaton.il.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_08052019-1220 and https://www.wheaton.il.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/4222?fileID=6785 If you are a Wheaton resident, please join me in urging the Wheaton City Council to vote yes on the resolution and ordinance to ban the sale of pot in Wheaton. SECOND: 5:00 PM, Tuesday, August 6, 2019, is the filing deadline for applications to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy. Sadly, Wheaton’s policy is to not disclose the names of the applicants or information about them, but instead, just the number of applications received. Please see the articles at the end of this email. So far, Wheaton has received 30 requests for applications, 4 complete applications, and 1 incomplete application. So far, to my knowledge, none of the applicants has publicly announced that they have filed. Because of that, I will be filing. In my opinion, not only Wheaton’s West District residents, but all of Wheaton’s residents should know who the applicants are before the filing deadline. If you become aware of someone who has filed or will file, please ask him/her to issue a press release and to include [email protected] in the press release list. THIRD: During its upcoming Planning Session on August 12th, the Wheaton City Council will discuss the Roosevelt Road Corridor Study with its consultant, present questions for further exploration, and receive public comment from the audience to aid in planning. (https://www.wheaton.il.us/930/Roosevelt-Road). The study area includes the south side of Roosevelt Road between Carlton Avenue and Main Street which is in my precinct and the south side of Roosevelt Road between Carlton Avenue and Warrenville Road which is in my precinct and in Wheaton’s West District. Recently, members of the “Concerned Citizens – Rezoning Roosevelt Road” Facebook group posted yard signs (21 at last count) at homes on Arbor Avenue, Golf Lane, Park Avenue, and Warrenville Road in my precinct that say “PRESERVE NEIGHBORHOODS RETHINK REZONING.” – Dave Diersen)

Gorka said that he called the president a “f**king idiot” when he refused to answer the questions being hurled at him. So, he just got his press pass suspended for thirty days, which Playboys vows to fight (via Washington Examiner):)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— AS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY’S STRANGLEHOLD ON ILLINOIS, ON COOK COUNTY, AND ON CHICAGO TIGHTENS: Meet the people working to kick Chicago out of Illinois – Cindy Dampier (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, the Democrats who run Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago make it clear that they want each and every individual, organization, and company that is a Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time TO LEAVE ILLINOIS.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/ct-life-illinois-state-secession-movement-0801-20190801-iesnu74ogvfjxfk35sn72lq7ya-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over the past two years, the movement to divide the state of Illinois into two states — Cook County in one, the other 101 counties in the other — has been gaining support. In February, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker was pursuing an agenda for Illinois that included new tax and abortion policies, Halbrook refiled a resolution in the state legislature, HR 101, in which he and six co-sponsors asked the U.S. Congress to recognize Chicago as the 51st state. “I hear it a lot from my constituents, that we need to be separate from Chicago,” Halbrook says. “I thought yep, this is what we need to do.” The resolution, which could be dismissed as simple political maneuvering — plays big at home, but has scant chance of seeing daylight in the legislature — is also backed by several grassroots groups agitating for separation. One of them, Illinois Separation, founded by Collin Cliburn, of Athens, has 24,000 followers on Facebook, and growing. Cliburn is also holding events at venues from wineries and gun shops to community centers around the state through August and September to capitalize on the cause’s momentum.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Pritzker vows to ‘root’ out parents scamming system for college financial aid for their kids: ‘Shame on you’ “If people are defrauding the system, these wealthy parents are literally committing fraud here,” the governor said. “We need to go find them, root it out and make sure that those dollars go to the right people.” – Tina Sfondeles (DIERSEN: How much debt did/could your parents take on to pay for your college expenses? I never expected my outstanding parents to take on any debt to pay for my college expenses. My father fought type 1 diabetes from age 14, he was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma, he never attended college, he worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant, he almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills, and he did not buy a new car until he was 45 and it was a bottom of the line Chevy. My mother never attended high school.)

— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: ‘She won’t take my calls’  Since taking office May 20, Lightfoot has not returned Wilson’s calls, he said. Instead, Lightfoot sent him a text saying she’s ‘too busy running the city to call me back.’ (DIERSEN: In politics, to not return a constituent’s phone call is to dump that constituent. I should write a book about past and present politicians a) who have represented me at the federal, state, county, township, and local levels and b) who have not returned my phone calls.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The college consultant who developed a strategy to help wealthy clients access scholarships designed for the poor said she came up with the idea after seeing how much debt parents were taking on to send their children to college. Lora Georgieva, owner of a consulting company called Destination College, said she has been explaining to families for the past two years that if they legally transferred the guardianship of their college-bound children to a friend or family member, the teens would be considered independent for the purposes of financial aid. That means they wouldn’t have to declare their parents’ income or assets, making it possible for them to collect state, federal and college scholarships reserved for students from poor families. The strategy was the topic of a Page One article Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal. Ms. Georgieva hadn’t responded to requests for comment for that article, but subsequently spoke Tuesday night with a Journal reporter about her operation. The U.S. Education Department condemned Ms. Georgieva’s actions and said it was moving to stop them.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190729/party-chairman-dupage-republicans-facing-unity-challenges
(FROM THE ARTICLE: His rise within the ranks of the DuPage Republican Party came one small step at a time, and now Marty Keller is chairman of the political organization that traditionally has found voter favor in the state’s second-largest county. Keller, of Wheaton, got involved in his party first as a precinct committeeman in Milton Township. From that start in 2004, he has stepped into roles as an elected Milton Township trustee and then as the employed executive director of the township’s Community Emergency Response Team; as chairman of the Milton Township Republicans; and then as vice chairman and now chairman of the countywide organization. Keller recently sat down with the Daily Herald to share the party’s outlook after a 2018 election that found Democrats winning an unprecedented number of county, state and national seats. Here is an edited version of the conversation.)
— FRONT PAGE WITH COLOR PHOTO: Casten seeking second term after ‘awesome, humbling’ first months in Congress – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190729/casten-seeking-second-term-after-awesome-humbling-first-months-in-congress
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten’s opponent from the Republican Party could be former Wheaton City Council member and Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti, who held the statewide position during former Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration. Or it could be former Wheaton City Council member, state representative and gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives, who ran against Rauner in the 2018 primary. Casten campaign spokeswoman Chloe Hunt said in a news release that both potential Republican challengers would take opposite stands from Casten on issues such as abortion and taxes. “Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti both embrace an extreme partisan ideology that would deny a woman’s right to choose and raise our health care costs,” Hunt said. “They both strongly support President Trump and they both are wildly out of touch with the concerns of the 6th Congressional District.” Ives launched her campaign by filing a statement of candidacy July 18 with the Federal Election Commission. Sanguinetti has been campaigning since April. Sanguinetti’s campaign has criticized Casten for being “out of touch” with his constituents, for rubber-stamping priorities of House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi instead of being “a centrist,” and for saying he wants to open an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. . .The National Republican Congressional Committee, for example, is calling out Casten and fellow freshman U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of the 14th District for votes related to military spending, saying they both are playing to a “socialist base” and putting “partisan extremism ahead of the safety of our brave troops.”)

AMERICAN THINKER
— It’s No Longer about Equality – Jeffrey Folks
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/07/its_no_longer_about_equality.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Minorities achieved legal equality in the 1960s, and they proceeded to claim the equivalent of reparations in the form of affirmative action, minority set-asides, preferential admissions based on race, and thousands of informal arrangements in the workplace granting preference in terms of evaluations and workload. As minorities gained these preferences, some became more aggressive. Some version of the Squad’s tactic of calling out whites and daring them to talk back became commonplace across society. Many Americans have witnessed blacks stepping to the front of the line and expecting to be served first. Many have seen minorities promoted ahead of more experienced whites with the idea that minorities need to be “represented.” But what we see now is different. It is not just society helping out those who have been disadvantaged in the past. It is a form of aggressive prejudice against, disdain for, and potential violence against whites. As I see it, the Squad epitomizes this new stage in race relations. It’s fortunate we have a president who recognizes what these women are about and is willing to stand up to them.)
— Reparations: A flawed stratagem – Sam Younnokis (DIERSEN: From what I see, if the Democrats defeat Trump in 2020, they will appoint “Reparations Czars” in each precinct in America who will determine how much reparations each resident of the precinct must pay. The more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you would have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— Trump Should Never Release His Tax Returns – David Thomas Roberts (DIERSEN: Democrats use tax return information to destroy Republicans. In 1978, the Democrats at Money Magazine and the Democrats at IRS used my tax returns to hint/imply/argue/shout that my education deductions were improper and should be disallowed. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business courses that I took at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul since 1976 a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction.)
https://townhall.com/columnists/davidthomasroberts/2019/07/29/trump-should-never-release-his-tax-returns-n2550685
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The latest data available from the IRS showed 2.2 million tax return errors in 2015 without an audit involved. Several years ago, Money Magazine gave a rather mundane sample family tax return to complete to 45 tax professionals and received 45 different tax outcomes, some as much as 160 percent different in the amount of taxes due or refunds to be received. It is literally impossible for anyone with complex tax returns to absolutely know beyond a shadow of a doubt if our tax professional did it right.)

They asked questions to confirm that I was conservative, Republican, Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, draft avoider, a Crete resident 1948-1972, and that my ancestors had been in America since 1844. To paint my wife and I as being undeservedly filthy rich DINKs, they asked me questions to confirm my wife’s employment and job perks, that we owned a home in Wheaton, that we owned three cars – a 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale, 1978 Chevy Chevette, and a 1972 Corvette, and that we owned a town home in University Park and had rental income from it.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-cresco-dispensary-wrigley-field-20190719-5nkq7sa7zfbativs5vr5cimnaq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meanwhile, operators around the state are preparing for recreational marijuana sales, which are set to start Jan. 1. Under the law Gov. Pritzker signed last month legalizing recreational use, existing medical dispensaries may apply to sell recreational marijuana as well. They may also apply to open a second location. In all, Cresco co-owns or owns five dispensaries and operates three cultivation facilities in Illinois. The company has applied with the state to sell recreational cannabis at its five existing dispensaries, Erkes said. If the company relocates its Lakeview facility across from Wrigley Field, it is unclear whether Cresco would have to reapply for a license to sell recreational marijuana there. The state has not started accepting applications for second dispensary locations. Municipalities and counties may ban cannabis businesses. Chicago has not yet established any zoning rules for the recreational industry.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Alas, we can’t urge Trump to go back where his family came from, because his big flapping mouth might land him in prison. Having had their fill of it under Adolf Hitler, the Germans have criminalized what they call “Volksverhetzung,” or “incitement of the people.” In Germany, it’s illegal to urge “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins, against segments of the population or individuals because of their belonging to one of the aforementioned groups … or calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them.” The penalty is three months to five years.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— Google settles job seekers’ age-bias claims for $11 million – ROBERT BURNSON (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those employers who have rejected my job applications since 1997 when I was 49 years old and my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.”)
https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2019-07-19/google-settles-job-seekers-age-bias-claims-for-11-million
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Google agreed to pay $11 million to end a lawsuit accusing the internet giant of discriminating against older job applicants, a deal that amounts to an average payout of more than $35,000 for 227 people who joined the class action. The settlement also calls for the Alphabet Inc. unit to train employees and managers about age bias, create a committee focused on age diversity in recruiting and ensure that complaints are adequately investigated. Lawyers for the company and attorneys representing the over-40 job seekers who sued submitted a final settlement proposal Friday to a federal judge in San Jose. Lawyers will collect about $2.75 million from the accord. The case was brought by a woman who claimed she was interviewed by Google four times over seven years and was never offered employment despite her “highly pertinent qualifications and programming experience” because of her age. Cheryl Fillekes accused the company of “a systematic pattern and practice of discriminating” against older people.)

At least three people had applied as of Tuesday, but the City Clerk’s office said on Friday that more have been received.

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 HILL
— 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.)

— Weed cafes in Illinois? People could be allowed to smoke marijuana at bars, restaurants, other businesses under new law. Legalization includes an exemption to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act ban on indoor smoking, letting cities decide whether to allow on-site use at bars, restaurants, theaters, even new cannabis smoke lounges. – Tom Schuba (DIERSEN: Municipalities and counties that do not ban the sale of pot shout that they are NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton.

They side with a) my Democrat GAO superiors who forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, 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; b) my Democrat IRS superiors who did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974; and c) my Democrat Post Office superiors who forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— Living near marijuana dispensaries makes youth more likely to use it, study finds (DIERSEN: Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton. I urge DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin and DuPage County Board members Donald Puchalski, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Elizabeth Chaplin, Peter “Pete” DiCianni, Sean Noonan, Greg Hart, Brian Krajewski, Julie Renehan, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Mary FitzGerald Ozog, Sadia Covert, Dawn DeSart, James Healy, Robert Larsen, Sheila Rutledge, and James Zay to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County.)

DAILY HERALD
— Legalized marijuana and the workplace – Marcy Traxler (DIERSEN: The more pot that you use, the more impaired that you are. The more booze that you drink, the more impaired that you are. Pot impairs you far longer than booze. Employers should not tolerate any kind of impairment.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20190620/legalized-marijuana-and-the-workplace
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Used versus impaired So how will this impact a business and how it approaches policy? Illinois statute prohibits discrimination against employees for testing positive for marijuana. The upshot is employers cannot rescind a job offer or terminate an employee for a positive drug test. How will this impact employers that want to hire or fire at will? For employers, a key issue involving marijuana is not legalization, but workplace safety. The takeaway is that it is more important than ever to make the distinction between an employee having used marijuana versus the employee being impaired on the job. Having come from an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) background, I think the most progressive companies have addressed this very issue and developed Drug Free Work Place and Safety Program policies to include training for supervisors to observe and document employees that have unsafe practices or exhibit behaviors and signs of drug use.)

FED SMITH
— Bill Resurfaces to Expedite Process of Firing Federal Employees – Ian Smith (DIERSEN: Constructively, to force a federal employee to take early retirement or to resign is to fire that employee. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. My Democrat GAO and IRS superiors forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to hint/imply/argue/shout that given all the work experience, education, professional certifications, and the professional license that I have, I must have been far worse than an “underperforming federal employee,” I must have been a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents, sue their operatives, and sue their dupes.) 
https://www.fedsmith.com/2019/06/20/bill-resurfaces-expedite-process-firing-federal-employees/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Government employees should be held to the same standards as private sector employees, yet it is nearly impossible to fire bureaucrats for failing to do their jobs,” said Senator Perdue. “Right now, it can take more than a year to fire or replace a civil service employee, even for poor performance or misconduct. With a $22 trillion debt crisis, we cannot afford to hold onto bureaucrats who aren’t doing their jobs. Since President Trump took office, more than 4,300 bad actors have been fired, demoted, or suspended at the VA. It’s time to expand those efforts and address problems across the entire federal government.” Congressman Loudermilk added, “Working for the United States federal government is an honor and privilege, and most federal employees cherish this opportunity and desire to serve the American people. Unfortunately, many underperforming federal employees feel entitled to their positions and treat them as their right. The solution to this issue is the MERIT Act. I thank my friend and colleague, Senator Perdue, for leading the charge on this important reform.” It was last introduced in 2018 in both the House and Senate but ultimately failed to advance.)

SPUTNIK NEWS
— Trump Pentagon Nominee a Return to Someone With ‘Limited Military Experience’ (DIERSEN: How much military experience do you have? I have none, but by the end of 1988, I had 3 years experience auditing IRS and almost 9 years experience working for IRS. At the start of 1989, a) to retaliate against me for my becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) to punish me for my avoiding the draft, and c) to punish my wife and I for giving up trying to have children, not adopting, and not becoming foster parents, my Democrat GAO superiors abruptly and rudely threw me off audits of IRS and assigned me to an audit of the Department of Defense 1990 ammunition budget request in Rock Island. SEE: https://www.gao.gov/assets/150/148194.pdf Instead of me, my GAO superiors should have assigned one of my many coworkers who had military experience and wanted the assignment. They painted me as having an unfair advantage to work on audits of IRS because I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. Overwhelmingly, my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates had very little or no prior work experience when GAO hired them.)
