DAILY BEAST
— Operation Targeting Journalists Seen Unfavorable to Trump Is Allied With the White House: NYT – Audrey McNamara (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, of course, I should write a book about those who have worked the hardest since 2000 to discredit me and to discredit my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. I would focus past and present activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
https://www.thedailybeast.com/operation-targeting-journalists-seen-unfavorable-to-trump-is-allied-with-the-white-house-nyt

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Allies of President Trump have reportedly constructed an operation to discredit journalists viewed as being unfavorable towards the president, the New York Times reports. The operation run by conservative operatives has reportedly scoured more than a decade of social media history from reporters who are seen as hostile towards Trump, in order to find potentially damaging posts that can be used against them in the court of public opinion. According to four people familiar with the operation who spoke to the Times, the operation has compiled dossiers of information on journalists from some of the country’s most prominent news organizations with the intent of publicizing damaging social media posts or statements.)

DAILY HERALD
— Sorry, but Thursday’s debate is about electability – E.J. Dionne Jr. (DIERSEN: Are you electable? Ever-increasingly, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party act like they are taking the advice of political consultants who say the more of the following that you are, the less electable that you are: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

According to my critics/opponents, the aforesaid can and should punish me if I do anything that they believe is wrong.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190910/tribes-teams-and-journalists
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Both sides fundamentally misunderstand the role of impartial and independent journalists. We belong to no tribe, root for no team. And if that sounds musty and old-fashioned, well, so does the Constitution, which not only protects a free press but defines it as essential to a healthy democracy.)

— Liberals haunted by social media tactics they use against the right – MADISON GESIOTTO (DIERSEN: Unlike my critics/opponents in the media who falsely claim to be objective and/or nonpartisan, I fully disclose that I am conservative and Republican. Further, I fully disclose my demographics: Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), patriotic, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, etc.) 
https://thehill.com/opinion/technology/460595-liberals-haunted-by-social-media-tactics-they-use-against-the-right
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The reason why liberal editors are so distraught that independent conservative journalists are publishing evidence of the racist, anti-Semitic, and otherwise vile sentiments expressed by their supposedly “objective” employees comes down — as it usually does — to power. Many journalists are in the profession not to inform the public, but to gain the power to destroy people who question them — and they don’t like those tactics being turned against them. “[U]sing journalistic techniques to target journalists and news organizations … is fundamentally different from the well-established role of the news media in scrutinizing people in positions of power,” the Times wrote in its article — which was of course labeled “news,” not “opinion.”)

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/09/10/san-francisco-nra-domestic-terrorist-organization-lawsuit/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “San Francisco’s actions pose a nonfrivolous constitutional threat,” the lawsuit argues. “Defendants are intent on targeting the NRA for its advocacy, chilling the NRA’s and its members’ rights of free speech and association under the First Amendment, all with an eye to silence the NRA from the debate on Second Amendment rights.” . . . “This action is an assault on all advocacy organizations across the country,” NRA lawyer William A.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-10/richest-could-lose-hundreds-of-billions-under-warren-wealth-tax

It would rise to 3% on every dollar above $1 billion. She has said this would combat rising inequality. Critics have charged that the tax would be hard to administer and easy to avoid. They’ve also questioned its constitutionality.)

A communication may be considered defamatory “if it tends so to harm the reputation of another as to lower him in the estimation of the community or to deter third persons from associating with him,” according to the American Restatement of Torts (or “The Restatement”). Examples of defamatory statements are virtually limitless and may include any of the following: . . . A communication that exposes a plaintiff to ridicule A communication that reflects negatively on the plaintiff’s character, morality, or integrity . . . A communication that suggests that the plaintiff suffers from a physical or mental defect that would cause others to refrain from associating with the plaintiff)
— 3 Crimes For Threatening a Politician (DIERSEN: Of course, I reserve my right to sue anyone, and their accomplices, a) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I am not a journalist, b) who hints/implies/argues/shouts that I harassed anyone, and/or c) who threatens to stop anyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)
https://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2012/09/3-crimes-for-threatening-a-politician.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Ever think of threatening a politician? With the endless loop of commercials and phone calls, it’s only our sanity and knowledge that threatening a politician may be a crime that stops most of us from doing so. But every year, a few people do lose it and lash out with threats and actions against a politician or political candidate.)

However, it did not identify the hard deadline Casten and others have suggested. – BGA

She’s no stranger to taking on the entrenched interests of the party establishment and has proven again and again to be a grassroots favorite. This should come as no surprise at a time when all too many Republicans are prone to cede ground on the issue of fiscal responsibility. Ives has instead made sticking up for the Illinois taxpayer a cornerstone of her platform.)

DAILY HERALD
— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: DuPage County begins discussions about allowing marijuana sales – Robert Sanchez (DIERSEN: Yesterday morning, during its public comment period, I spoke at the DuPage County Development Committee meeting and urged that DuPage County be the first county in Illinois to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas. What do you say to my pot-pushing critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who pander to the Democrat news media and who proclaim that I cannot be both a member of the news media and someone who speaks at DuPage County meetings? What they are really saying is that the only people who are legitimate members of the news media are a) those who are paid for what they do, b) those who have a degree in journalism, and c) those who state that they are non-partisan. Constructively, yesterday morning, DuPage County suspended, if not revoked, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS press credentials because I urged DuPage County to be the first county in Illinois to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas. How should I react to that? If the current trend is not reversed, RINOs will succeed in barring me from attending all Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton meetings and events. If the current trend is not reversed, RINOs will succeed in barring me from attending and reporting on Republican fundraisers unless I buy a ticket.)

You’re a punk!” Ever-increasingly, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs, and especially those who push pot, treat me like I am fraudulently claiming to a journalist. Should I send them cease and desist letters or should I just sue them?

— Wisconsin governor Tony Evers sued for barring conservative journalists from briefing – Andrew O’Reilly (DIERSEN: I should ask the Liberty Justice Center to represent me against those government entities that have treated me like Evers has treated Maclver News Service.)
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/wisconsin-governor-sued-for-barring-conservative-journalists-from-briefing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A conservative think tank in Wisconsin is suing the state’s governor, Tony Evers, amid allegations that his administration has denied journalists working for the group’s new service access to a budget press briefing and refused to add its reporters to the governor’s press list. The Maclver Institute, a right-leaning public policy shop that runs the Maclver News Service, filed suit earlier this week against Evers for purportedly excluding its reporters from press briefings and failing to provide them with media materials given to other journalists. The lawsuit claims that the Evers’ administration is violating the journalists’ constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of the press and equal access. “Our reporters have the same constitutional rights as every other journalist in Wisconsin, and we have a duty to keep the public informed about what’s happening in state government,” Brett Healy, the president of the MacIver Institute, said in a statement. “While we hoped Gov. Evers would do the right thing and treat our journalists they (sic) way they treat others, the administration has refused. We now have no option but to sue.” The Maclver News Service covers Wisconsin’s legislature, governor’s office and other political affairs from a conservative viewpoint. Healy added in his statement: “We hope to quickly resolve this issue, not just so that our journalists can go about their important work but to ensure no future governor engages in the same unconstitutional practices.” The Maclver Institute is being represented by the Liberty Justice Center, a Chicago-based public interest law firm that made headlines last year for representing Illinois state worker Mark Janus in his landmark case in the Supreme Court against the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union.)

— We talked to experts on aging about the 2020 field. Here’s what they told us. One medical expert says Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Donald Trump are part of the population known as ‘superagers.’ – MARC CAPUTO (DIERSEN: How old are you? I am 70. All my critics/opponents, all their operatives, and all their dupes have always promoted age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to pander to those who promote age discrimination. I should write a book about them. I would start with high-level RINOs in Milton Township and DuPage County who are candidates, elected officials, and party leaders.) 
https://www.politico.com/story/2019/08/20/joe-biden-old-age-1468635
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But Olshansky points out that presidential candidates are probably healthier than the average U.S. citizen — and will likely live longer than the average as a result. People who have good health care, are more highly educated and have pensions generally live longer. “They all belong to a subgroup of the population that is privileged. And privileged subgroups tend to live longer and better than the average,” Olshansky said. “Despite Bernie Sanders perhaps claiming otherwise, he’s part of the 1 percent. Actually, it’s more like 1/100 of 1 percent.” Olshansky said the older candidates could belong to a group of what are called “superagers,” people who live into their 80s but show a mental sharpness as if they were in their 50s or 60s. Emily Rogalski, a Northwestern University neuroscientist and associate psychiatry and behavioral sciences professor who specializes in studying superagers, said it’s exceedingly difficult to “determine someone’s cognitive abilities simply by knowing someone’s chronological age.”)

The Silicon Valley company said that journalists would help curate News Tab, a new section inside of the company’s mobile application that will surface the most recent and relevant stories for readers. Facebook said it planned to hire seasoned journalists from various outlets for the roles and would put up job postings on its employment board on Tuesday.)

— Bodyguard for CNN’s April Ryan charged with assault for forcibly removing journalist from event – Chris Perez (DIERSEN: My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes a) would side with April Ryan and with her bodyguard Joel Morris in this and b) have sided with the pot pushers and their goons who threw me out of the DuPage County Development Committee meeting yesterday.)
https://nypost.com/2019/08/19/bodyguard-for-cnns-april-ryan-charged-with-assault-for-forcibly-removing-journalist-from-event/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: CNN political analyst April Ryan — who has repeatedly blasted President Trump for attacking and vilifying the press — got her bodyguard to forcibly remove a journalist from an event she was speaking at in New Jersey, leading cops to charge him Monday with assault. “This was more than just an assault on me,” tweeted New Brunswick Today editor Charlie Kratovil. “This was an assault on freedom of the press.” Kratovil claims he was violently tossed from the New Jersey Parent Summit on Aug. 3 by Ryan’s goon after spending two hours inside filming other guests and speakers without any problems. Kratovil had been invited to The Heldrich Hotel, where the event was held, by a public relations firm and asked to cover it. Video posted online shows him sitting in the audience as Ryan takes the stage and starts speaking. Moments later, her bodyguard — Joel Morris, 30, of Illinois — comes into view and is told something by Ryan. He promptly walks over to Kratovil and allegedly attempts to take his video camera. “Put that down,” Kratovil yells. “Don’t you dare — put that down, sir! That’s my camera!” A tussle allegedly ensues and Morris winds up walking Kratovil out of the venue — with his arm twisted around his back, the journalist says. “This is a personal event,” Morris can be heard telling him. “You’re not allowed back in.” A woman can be heard screaming at Kratovil at one point, saying: “How dare you come in here and interrupt this event like this!” “I didn’t interrupt,” he fired back. Kratovil posted a video on his Twitter page Monday, explaining how cops found “probable cause” to charge Morris with harassment, assault and theft. “I was there to cover April Ryan’s speech,” Kratovil explained. “Joel Morris stole [my] camera, high-tailed it out of the room. One thing led to another, I ended up being assaulted after retrieving the camera. But now Mr. Morris is going to have to show up on Sept. 12…in Superior Court.” Kratovil added, “It’s a shame that we even have to be at this point.” He read a statement from the NJ Society of Professional Journalists, saying: “It is never under any circumstances permissible for a person aggrieved at being photographed or videotaped to lay hands on the journalist, or attempt to take away the journalist’s equipment.” “It is sad we have to say this, and remind people of this — and it’s super sad that we have to remind another journalist of this,” Kratovil said. “We are still waiting for [Ryan] to comment on this unfortunate incident…Maybe now that there’s criminal charges we might hear something from her. I hope sincerely that she does comment and I hope she does condemn this. This is unacceptable…Not in our country, we have freedom of the press here.” Ryan, in the past, has repeatedly voiced her outrage with Trump and how he treats the media. She even published a book last year — titled “Under Fire” — which talks about the challenges and attacks that journalists have faced in recent years. The longtime political analyst did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday. “Her silence is deafening at this point,” Kratovil said, speaking to NJ.com. “It’s been more than two weeks. Anybody who’s a journalist should be condemning this.”)

— MARCH 5, 2019 FLASHBACK: Legalizing marijuana will imperil everyone – Kevin Sabet
https://www.timesunion.com/opinion/article/Commentary-Legalizing-marijuana-will-imperil-13665903.php
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I’m sure by now you’ve heard the line, “Marijuana doesn’t kill anyone. It’s much safer than alcohol.” It’s a popular refrain for pro-pot pushers who want you to believe the drug they want to commercialize is harmless.)

INQUISITR
— Trump Administration Sued For Revoking Press Credentials From CNN Correspondent In ‘War With The Press’ – Nathan Francis (DIERSEN: Constructively, yesterday morning, DuPage County suspended, if not revoked, my GOPUSA ILLINOIS press credentials because I urged DuPage County to be the first county in Illinois to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas. How should I react to that? If the current trend is not reversed, RINOs will succeed in barring me from attending all Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, and Wheaton meetings and events. If the current trend is not reversed, RINOs will succeed in barring me from attending and reporting on Republican fundraisers unless I buy a ticket.)

USA TODAY
— Politicians should stop talking about creating ‘good jobs.’ There are no bad jobs. By calling some jobs ‘good’ and implying others are bad, we’re saying some jobs have no future or, worse, they are not worthy of a person’s effort. – Frayda Levin (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, a) all the jobs that I had were bad jobs and b) I was grossly overpaid for those jobs. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

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.”)

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.)

https://evanstonnow.com/story/government/bill-smith/equity/2019-08-16/82700/panel-seeks-tax-break-for-black-homeowners
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The resolution said the measures would help “remedy the city’s role in historical and institutional racism and discrimination.” The resolution adds that while much of the “wealth and opportunity gap” affecting black residents are tied to home loan redlining practices in parts of the 2nd and 5th Wards, the commission didn’t want to limit the reparations programs to residents in those neighborhoods. The panel ducked addressing issues regarding how the policies might be implemented, “acknowledging that additional research and data are necessary to create a fair and equitable process and determine the long-term sustainability of the funding sources.”)
