(FROM THE ARTICLE: The match-up will be the biggest GOP primary for Congress in Illinois.

Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.; former Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill.; former Rep. Judy Biggert, R-Ill., former Lt. Gov. Corinne Wood; DuPage County Board Chair Dan Cronin and a group of GOP township committeemen — all influential in a Republican primary. As of June 30, Casten has $899,888 cash-on-hand.

https://capitolfax.com/2019/07/18/reefer-madness-is-alive-and-well/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the early 1900s an influx of Mexican immigrants came to the US fleeing political unrest in their home country. With them, they brought the practice of smoking cannabis recreationally. And it took off. The Spanish word for the plant started to be used more often too. Marijuana. Or as it was spelled at that time, marihuana, with an “H. This is when the more sensational headlines about the drug began to appear. In 1936, a propaganda film called Reefer Madness was released. In the movie, teenagers smoke weed for the first time and this leads to a series of horrific events involving hallucination, attempted rape, and murder. Much of the media portrayed it as a gateway drug. […] Harry Anslinger took the scientifically unsupported idea of marijuana as a violence-inducing drug, connected it to black and Hispanic people, and created a perfect package of terror to sell to the American media and public. By emphasizing the Spanish word marihuana instead of cannabis, he created a strong association between the drug and the newly arrived Mexican immigrants who helped popularize it in the States. He also created a narrative around the idea that cannabis made black people forget their place in society. He pushed the idea that jazz was evil music created by people under the influence of marijuana. […] In the first full year after the Marihuana Tax Act was passed, black people were about three times more likely to be arrested for violating narcotic drug laws than whites. And Mexicans were nearly nine times more likely to be arrested for the same charge.)

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Stop Chanting ‘Send Her Back.’ Citizenship Isn’t Conditional. – JIM GERAGHTY (DIERSEN: According to David Ware (https://www.david-ware.com/blog/2018/01/when-can-the-government-revoke-your-naturalized-citizenship.shtml), naturalized citizenship can be revoked if “within 5 years of naturalization, the U.S. government proved you joined a subversive group. Such groups include Al Qaeda and the Nazi Party, for example” and “within 10 years of naturalization, you refused to testify before a U.S. congressional committee investigating your involvement in an allegedly subversive act. Subversive acts include trying to harm U.S. officials or overthrow the government.” and “you lied or concealed relevant facts in order to obtain U.S. citizenship, your citizenship could be revoked. This is called illegally procuring citizenship.”)

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/timothymeads/2019/07/17/1-000-activists-form-wall-to-block-ice-agents-from-entering-building-n2550207
(FROM THE ARTICLE: On Tuesday, more than 1,000 pro-illegal immigration activists alongside members of the group “Never Again Action” formed a human wall around government office buildings in Washington, D.C., blocking Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from entering their workspace. Dozens were arrested as the demonstrators formed a human chain replete with chanting and the traditional left-wing moonbat antics against the American government. Apparently, the group’s main aim was to block ICE employees from doing their job unless the federal employees agreed to close down immigration detention centers which are housing thousands of migrant children and adults who have crossed the border into the country. The activists believe these facilities to be “concentration camps.”)

PERSON COUNTY LIFE
— Roxboro council sets process for filling vacant seat – Johnny Whitfield
http://personcountylife.com/stories/roxboro-council-sets-process-for-filling-vacant-seat,23174
— Roxboro’s city council is to be commended for its openness in the selection process if will use to fill the vacant seat of the late Byrd Blackwell. – Editorial
http://www.personcountylife.com/stories/striking-a-blow-for-openness,23175
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: At a public meeting on Tuesday, Mayor Merilyn Newell laid out a very straightforward and public process that will leave the deliberations of the council open to the public. Qualified individuals will be asked to submit resumes or applications that will be reviewed by council and made available to the public for its review. The candidates will all be interviewed in an open meeting and a vote on the new council member will take place in the open. Anyone who fills a vacant seat in the middle of a term has to establish their legitimacy as a full-fledged, creditable member of the council because they were not elected directly by the voting public. But the council’s decision to hold their deliberations in public and to let the public hear from the candidates before a candidate is chosen, will go a long way torward establishing the bona fides of the eventual appointee. With Roxboro’s council currently operating without hospitalized council member Sandy Stigall, the body is at a bare minimum. The process Newell laid out earlier this week sets out a deliberate, steady process to fill the vacant seat. We encourage people interested in community service to consider putting their name in the hat. We believe that the more candidates the council has to choose from the more likely that body is to find a strong candidate who can hit the ground running. That’s important in Roxboro as the city embarks on a number of new efforts to promote land use development and economic development, among other priorities. And, fortunately for everyone else, the candidate who eventually takes the seat will be well-known by the members of the public willing to listen to the interviews and to learn more about the candidates themselves.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Deerfield officials are open to allowing recreational marijuana sales, but in what form? – STEVE SADIN (DIERSEN: For a municipality or a county to allow the sale of recreational pot is to flush its “family friendly” status down the toilet.

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Intraparty GOP criticism is a headache for leader Durkin His super-minority caucus is fractured into at least two even smaller camps – Rich Miller 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/7/12/20692380/jim-durkin-intraparty-gop-criticism-springfield
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the second time this year, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin has stripped one of his member’s access to a House communications staffer. Rep. Chris Miller, R-Oakland, is the most recent to lose his state-funded communications staff member. Earlier this year, Rep. Dave McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, lost his comms staffer for criticizing fellow Republican Rep. Steve Reick for allegedly making “racist” comments and calling on House GOP Leader Jim Durkin to resign for being a “fake Republican” and “corrupt insider.” McSweeney, who wants to run statewide in 2022, said he paid for his own communications staffer, so he wasn’t concerned. The problems with Miller (no relation) started coming to a head last month when his Facebook page displayed an Americans for Prosperity Illinois post calling on readers to “Keep Rep. Brady accountable for raising the gas tax.” The post featured a photo of Rep. Dan Brady, a Deputy House Republican Leader. Rep. Miller claimed later that his Facebook account had been hacked. “Thanks for the heads up,” he told me after denying he’d made the post. I was dubious of the explanation, to say the least. And the attacks on his fellow Republicans continued. Earlier this month, he wrote on Facebook “Republicans don’t vote for tax hikes,” and called the GOP members who voted to raise the Motor Fuel Tax “Republicans in name only.”)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Every town should ban pot in public places Legislators thought video gambling would be limited only to bars, restaurants and veteran organizations. But video gambling machines are everywhere. – Anita Bedell, Executive Director, Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems
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.)
