NEW YORK TIMES
— Missing From Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Surge: Democratic Endorsements Despite Ms. Warren’s upward momentum in polls and fund-raising, she lacks the support of a single governor, big-city mayor or fellow senator outside Massachusetts. – Jonathan Martin (DIERSEN: An obvious question is which of those who endorsed Sanguinetti will now endorse Ives or Kinzler. An obvious question is will Sanguinetti endorse Ives or Kinzler. Jim Ryan supporters continue to blame Pat O’Malley supporters Ryan’s losing to Blagojevich in 2002.)

JOURNAL STANDARD
— FROM THE MAY 11, 2013 ARTICLE: “In 2002, Sen. Pat O’Malley staged a vicious primary campaign for governor against eventual GOP nominee Jim Ryan, who was the attorney general. Conservative O’Malley refused to endorse the more moderate Ryan in the general election campaign, and Ryan was beaten by Democrat Rod Blagojevich, who is doing time in a federal penitentiary on a corruption conviction. “If O’Malley hadn’t attacked Ryan so viciously in the primary, Ryan could have made up the five points by which he lost and Illinois would have looked much different today,” Syverson said.”

ALTON DAILY NEWS
— Challenges Anticipated with Legal Weed – Doug Jenkins (DIERSEN: QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES: Have you ever used recreational weed? If so, exactly when and exactly how much? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? Are you going to use recreational weed when it is legal? If so, exactly how often and exactly how much? What do you say to people who impair themselves? Have you ever driven a vehicle while you were dunk or incapacitated? If so, exactly when? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? What do you say to people who impair themselves?) 
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=292314#.XaRSrL5_OM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While there are established, accepted and legally binding blood alcohol levels when determining when someone is drunk or incapacitated, no such tests exist to see if you are high on marijuana. With recreational weed becoming legal in Illinois next year, that has employers trying to figure out policy on how to address its use. A spokesman from OSF Healthcare outlines some of the challenges. Troy Overholt, Vice President for Occupational Health at OSF HealthCare admits to employers that while it may be risky and has yet to be challenged in court, monitoring for marijuana impairment in an employee may need to be less scientific and more observational. There is no scientifically reliable way to measure for marijuana intoxication. THC is stored in fat cells, so the length of time it’s in your system is not a blood test level. So, he says you could test high today from use weeks or months ago, and it depends greatly on frequency and the amount of use.)

DAILY NORTHWESTERN
— Community leaders talk push for reparations – Kalen Luciano, Heena Srivastava, Julia Esparza, and Amy Coval (DIERSEN: If/when the Democrats take over your municipality, who will they appoint to determine how much reparations that you have to pay? You should expect that the more of the following that you are, the more reparations that you will have to pay: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time. Of course, the Democrats will bankrupt you if any of your ancestors owned slaves, fought for the Confederacy, lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line, etc.)

It is beyond obvious those in the IRP, DCRCC, MTRCC, etc. who reject planks in the IRP platform and/or in the Republican Party platform and/or who reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling do everything that they can to a) stop me from sending GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails out and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. As everyone sees, the officers of the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRCC DO NOT encourage anyone to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. As everyone sees, the officers of the IRP, DCRCC, and MTRCC blacklist me and blacklist my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

WESTERN JOURNALISM
— Google Quietly Pushes Publishers Out of Google News, Remains Silent As to Why – Erin Coates (DIERSEN: Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois, etc. do not want Google to treat www.gopillinois.com as being a legitimate news website. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican. I would focus on those who promote dependency on government, dependency on charity, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, abolition of the First and Second Amendment, booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, retaliation, and even worse things. I would focus on those who are 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.

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that there is a 22+ year gap in my resume. They stress that my GAO superiors 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.)

— Women still get fired for being pregnant, as Elizabeth Warren says she was in 1971 Walmart, UPS and other major employers have faced charges of mistreating pregnant workers – Leslie Albrecht (DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Firestone Stores fired me because I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Of course, to force an employee to retire is to fire that employee. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me retire, that is, they fired me. They fired me a) because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, c) because I refused to help them get rid of their employees who were Republican White, male, and/or non-veteran because they had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40, and d) because many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates despised many of my demographics including my being Republican, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

— Seven ideas to help Illinois stop kicking the can on state pensions
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/html-page/848701
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Laurence Msall wants Illinois to tax retirement income. What threshold does Msall want – $100,000, $75,000, $50,000, $25,000?
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.)
