— A Survey of 1,003 People Shows Millennials Lie on Resumes 5 Times More Often Than Baby Boomers Gen Z lies seven times more often. – Minda Zetlin
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.)

— 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.)

STANDARD MEDIA
— Do you need a higher degree or is work experience sufficient? – Nancy Nzalambi (DIERSEN: According to this article, “A degree earned 20 years ago may be useless now.” Of course, my critics/opponents stress that all my education, paid work experience, professional certifications, and professional license are at least 21 years old.)
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.)

BROOKLYN PAPER
— There is a biblical saying. “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” – STEPHANIE THOMPSON (DIERSEN: How do people treat you? One can assume that people treat you like they want you to treat them. I should write a book about how people in my neighborhood, in my precinct, in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have treated me since I moved to Wheaton in 1978. 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.)

— FAA investigating whether ‘unqualified’ Chicago firefighters were allowed to operate special airport rigs at O’Hare, Midway – PETER NICKEAS (DIERSEN: GAO audits IRS. I transferred from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old. While I worked for GAO for almost 18 years after having worked for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $82,579-$93,592, my GAO superiors a) refused to assign me to audits of IRS for all but 3 of those almost 18 years and b) routinely assigned other staff to audits of IRS who had no knowledge of or interest in IRS, who did not want to be assigned to audits of IRS, who had far less work experience that I had, who did not have a degree in accounting like I had, who had not passed the CPA examination like I had done, who had not passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination like I had done, who had not become a licensed CPA, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, or Forensic Accountant like I had done, etc. Instead of me, my Democrat GAO superiors assigned to audits of IRS their employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger than me, disabled, and/or veteran.)

They viewed the jobs that I had as being bad jobs. GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

CHEROKEE TRIBUNE LEDGER
— Emails, texts show playful exchanges between Rich Miller, Pritzker staff over Confederate Railroad cancellation – Greg Bishop (DIERSEN: He who pays the piper calls the tunes. Dave Diersen, your GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, has not sought or received any money and will not seek or accept any money a) from the State of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, or any other government entity or b) from the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, or any other political organization for what I do as your GOPUSA ILLINOIS Editor.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: An Illinois politics blogger who receives tens of thousands of dollars from state government agencies wouldn’t comment on whether his post about Confederate Railroad and subsequent texts to the governor’s staff had anything to do with the abrupt cancellation of the band’s performance at the DuQuoin State Fair. Rich Miller writes the Capitol Fax blog, a subscription-based newsletter and website. In fiscal year 2018, Miller received $35,736 from state government. He received $34,791 in fiscal year 2019. So far for the fiscal year that started July 1, he’s received $1,500, according to the latest public records. Most of the payments to Miller were line items of $500 from various state agencies throughout the year, including the General Assembly. Miller sells both subscriptions to and advertisements on Capitol Fax. The Center Square obtained text messages and emails to and from Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office through the Freedom of Information Act. Those messages show on June 17, the same day Miller posted a blog questioning the band’s scheduled performance, Miller sent a text to the governor’s deputy press secretary, Emily Bittner.)

— Home DNA Tests Can Disrupt Family Dynamics. Here’s How More people are taking home DNA tests to learn about their background. For some, the results can be not only unexpected, but can radically change their lives. – Amy Dockser Marcus (DIERSEN: Who hates German Americans the most in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois? Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs are nasty. I should write a book about a) how my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government used and b) how my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois use my 100% German national origin against me. They constantly foisted/foist negative German stereotypes on me. I would focus on those who are German American, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn me to curry favor with those who hate German Americans. They paint themselves as being “good” German Americans who go around destroying “bad” Germans like me. In my defense, I stress that they all my ancestors immigrated way back during the 1840s and 1850s, that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that if he had not been 4-F, my father would have fought the Germans during WWII. If DNA information had been available back when I worked for the federal government, I would have stressed that. According to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)

— West Haven council candidates zero in on city’s growth, how to manage it – TIM VANDENACK (DIERSEN: Are you a Wheaton resident? Do you live in Wheaton’s West District? What do you know about the ten who have filed to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy?) 
https://www.standard.net/news/government/west-haven-council-candidates-zero-in-on-city-s-growth/article_210fe56d-815e-56c3-8771-77800e8bae48.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Eight candidates are running for three seats on the West Haven City Council and growth in the rapidly expanding city and how to manage it are two key focuses. Two incumbents are among the candidates, Lacy Richards and Stephanie Carlson. The other hopefuls are Nina Morse, Carrie Call, Rob Higginson, David Smith, Russell Erickson and Kim Dixon. Primary voting via mail is underway while in-person voting is set for Aug. 13. That balloting will narrow the list of candidates to the top six vote getters. Then they, like the primary winners in the other city council and mayoral races around Weber County, face off in the Nov. 5 general election. Meantime, here’s some info on the West Haven candidates, pulling from statements they supplied to the Utah Lieutenant Governor’s Office and the Standard-Examiner as well as their own campaign material.)

— Cape Girardeau City Council Chooses From Ward 3 Hopefuls Aiming To Fill Seat Vacancy – CLAYTON HESTER (DIERSEN: Are you a Wheaton resident? Do you live in Wheaton’s West District? What do you know about the ten who have filed to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy?)
https://www.krcu.org/post/cape-girardeau-city-council-chooses-ward-3-hopefuls-aiming-fill-seat-vacancy#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Before a meeting on Monday, ten Cape Girardeau residents were angling to fill a ward 3 vacancy on the city council. That number has now been whittled down to three applicants: Tom Roy, Nate Thomas, and Christina Mershon. Roy, a medical practice manager at SoutheastHEALTH, is an alumni of Southeast Missouri State University, and has called Cape Girardeau home for the last 19 years. “[I] don’t have any special interests, don’t have any special agendas,” he said. “Just hoping the skills I’ve accumulated over the last 30 years can help.” He also described himself as a “big proponent of the parks,” and voiced interest in tightening up rules for landlords – particularly those who rent to college students. Thomas, a physical therapist at St. Francis Hospital, said although he isn’t a Cape Girardeau native, he and his family are now “deeply rooted and integrated” in the city. “Perhaps I would say my strongest attribute I would bring the council is my background in government relations,” Thomas said. Not only has he worked with Congress and multiple committees, but he’s also worked with various government agencies. The third candidate, Christina Mershon, said she offers a “diverse” skill set developed in her position as director of continuing education at Southeast Missouri State University. Mershon said that, while improvements are being made on Town Plaza and other select areas across town, there are still “major problems that need to be recognized.” “Last week, guys, we had a shooting there. It kind of concerns me that no one is mentioning violence and some of the systemic problems. That’s heavy on my brain and my heart,” she said. “Because while we go forward and we’re really making strides, we’ve got to figure out what’s going on in the underpinning to address that stuff.” She likened the potential to run to a “dating situation” – she might not run for the ward seat after her time as replacement would expire. She wants to see how well the position works for her. Ward 3 was made available when the former representative Victor Gunn resigned on July 8th.)

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)

He said that the attendees of the White House’s social media summit were willing participants of demonic possession. 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):)

(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.)

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.)

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.)

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.)

— Trump promised on Friday to retaliate against France for adopting a pioneering tax on internet giants like Google, Amazon and Facebook. (DIERSEN: My Democrat GAO superiors retaliated against Republican-led budget cuts by a) forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) giving me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, c) always ranking me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, d) not promoting me beyond GS-13, e) getting rid of my mentor in 1987, f) keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and g) forcing me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

https://www.nprillinois.org/post/londrigan-responds-fake-reporter-incident#stream/0
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Betsy Dirksen Londrigan’s campaign called the incident “underhanded.” . . . Londrigan says the stunt was in poor form. “Congressman Davis likes to go on television and talk about civility in politics, all the while his campaign is again engaging in an ongoing series of dishonest distractions,” she said. Klitzing formerly worked on Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign and served as the state Republican Party Director for a time. According to WCIA TV, Klitzing says he had received orders from higher-up campaign staffers. Davis campaign personnel have crashed Londrigan events before. “Congressman Davis’ field director showed up at one of my events drunk, and ended up getting arrested for assaulting people,” Londrigan said, recounting an incident from 2018. “It’s not the first time that somebody within the Davis campaign has behaved in this manner.” . . . When asked if her campaign is revisiting how it screens reporters for news conferences, Londrigan laughed and said it would be a “good idea.”)

My Democrat IRS superiors 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.

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.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/7/17/20698369/racism-bigotry-trump-ocasio-cortez-gene-lyons-irish-discrimination
(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.)

— 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.

My Democrat 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. My Democrat IRS superiors 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.

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— Community Opt-Out for Marijuana Dispensaries – David E. Smith 
https://illinoisfamily.org/marijuana-2/community-opt-out-for-marijuana-dispensaries/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Take ACTION: Ask your local mayor, village trustees, aldermen and county board members to pass an ordinance prohibiting marijuana dispensaries and marijuana businesses in your community. The Village of Morton in central Illinois is the first municipality to pass such an ordinance. Their ordinance can serve as a template for other communities: Click HERE for this sample ordinance. Once it is introduced, ask local pastors, local law enforcement officials, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists and others in the community to write letters and speak at public hearings in support of a ban on marijuana sales. Cover this entire process in your prayers. Pray especially for the wisdom of local officials who must vote on this proposal. . .Furthermore, it is important to point out that six Republicans also supported this regressive policy to make our highways less safe and to enslave our neighbors to addiction and mental illness: Illinois State Senators Jason Barickman (Bloomington), Neil Anderson (Moline), Steve McClure (Jacksonville), and Illinois State Representatives Allen Skillicorn (Crystal Lake), Lindsay Parkhurst (Kankakee), and David Welter (Morris) voted in favor of this anti-family policy. In their desperation to find a new revenue source to fix the financial mess they created (and/or to promote a so-called “social justice” antidote), these lawmakers failed sorely in their job to protect Illinois citizens.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— OUTSTANDING: Naperville City Council takes first step toward opting out of the retail sale of recreational pot – ERIN HEGARTY
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-retail-marijuana-sale-naperville-council-st-20190717-rb6gxuw4lzaetie2wupsb6vtfm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Naperville City Council appears ready to say no the selling recreational marijuana in the city. Members voted 5-4 Tuesday to direct staff to prepare the documentation needed to opt out of the retail sale of adult-use cannabis under the terms of the new state law, which goes into effect Jan. 1. The vote came after public comment from more than 15 people, including two businesses that want permission to sell pot in the city and representatives from behavioral health centers who are opposed to it. Council members Theresa Sullivan, Patty Gustin, Paul Hinterlong, Kevin Coyne and Patrick Kelly voted to opt out of allowing the retail sale of recreational cannabis. Those voting in favor were Benny White, Judy Brodhead, John Krummen and Mayor Steve Chirico. . .Residents and council members who spoke against the selling it in Naperville said it to approve it would be contrary to the city’s positive image, detrimental to public safety and potentially harmful to youth. “There is nothing family friendly about recreational marijuana. Family friendly is Naperville’s brand,” resident Jennifer Taylor said. . .Gustin reminded her fellow council members that while there may be benefits from a medical standpoint, the sale and use of marijuana is still against the law in the eyes of the U.S. government. “This is a federally illegal product,” Gustin said. “The federal government has not legalized marijuana because it’s a drug. Selling recreational marijuana will draw the nuisance to Naperville.” With Tuesday’s vote, city staff will prepare the necessary documents for an official council vote to opt out of the retail sale of recreational marijuana later in the year. . .Councilman Coyne said allowing recreational marijuana just because the city already sells alcohol and cigarettes doesn’t make sense. “We should allow and accept marijuana because alcohol is already here. We have one bad habit in town, so we should add another? I don’t buy into that,” Coyne said. Matt Quinn, community relations coordinator with Rosecrance, said teens perceive marijuana use as less risky than they did in the past. Quinn urged council to “not be naive” about the law requiring pot consumers to be 21 or older. Teens push boundaries, he said.)

Democrats promise those who claim asylum in America tremendous government assistance, otherwise known as welfare, including free housing, free food, free clothing, free medical care, free education, free transportation, jobs, a pathway to citizenship, etc. Of course, Democrats expect, if not demand, that those who claim asylum help Democrats get rid of Republicans once and for all.)

— Google Expert to Senator Cruz: 15 Million 2020 Votes At Risk – Corinne Weaver (DIERSEN: How many votes are at risk in Illinois, in your county, in your township/ward, in your municipality, and in your precinct?)
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/corinne-weaver/2019/07/17/google-expert-senator-cruz-15-million-2020-votes-risk
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Tech’s biggest threat to democracy isn’t censorship or privacy: it’s election manipulation. At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, “Google and Censorship through Search Engines,” Dr. Robert Epstein, who researches the impact of Google, informed the hearing that “upwards of 15 million votes” were in jeopardy in the 2020 election. During his testimony, Epstein told Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) that in 2016, Google gave at least 2.6 million votes to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, “through bias and search results.” He stressed that was the lowest number.)

CONDUCTOR
— FEBRUARY 22, 2018 FLASHBACK: How to Identify Your Competitors in 6 Steps – Amy Biggart (DIERSEN: Things that differentiate my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails from what my direct competitors put out include: a) my emails highlight the sources, titles, authors, and links of articles posted on websites, b) they come out each and every morning and each and every evening, c) they include links only to articles that are less than 12 hours old with only rare exceptions, d) they contain no advertising, e) they are free, and f) they are not manipulated or dominated by any “major donors” because I donate all the time and money necessary to put them out. However, because I am a member of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC), and therefore the DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), and the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), my critics/opponents do everything that they can to get MTRCC, DCRCC, and IRP to punish me. Previously, they did everything that they could to get TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter to punish me.)

AMERICAN FREE PRESS
— Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee Keeps Hounding Trump
https://americanfreepress.net/watchdog-keeps-hounding-trump/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s a list of Gheen’s grievances with Trump: Trump promised a wall . . . no wall. Trump promised to end Obama’s DACA Amnesty on his first day, . . . DACA is continued by Trump. Trump promised to end birthright citizenship by executive order. . . . He did not do it. Trump said illegals had to go home. . . . Now he says they can stay and he supports amnesty bills. Trump said he would build a new deportation force to send illegals home. . . . That has not happened. Trump said he would clean up our elections, including illegal alien voters, but folded and shut down the Elections Integrity Commission headed by Kris Kobach at the first sign of resistance. Then Trump said he ordered DHS to clean up our elections’ fraud problems . . . [but it] hasn’t happened. Trump has packed his administration with pro-Amnesty Bush faction operatives while leaving most anti-illegal immigration fighters out of his staff pool. Trump promised to end sanctuary cities for illegal aliens but has not. Trump said he was sending the U.S. military to the border and ordering DHS to repel the illegal alien caravans. He said there would be no more catch and release and that the caravans would not be let in nor would be kept in tent detention facilities near the borders. But instead he is letting the caravan illegals in, and most of them are roaming free here inside the U.S. at this time with government assistance.)

LOWELL SUN
— Auditor resumés don’t add up Councilors trying to get more applications (DIERSEN: Should I apply? I worked for GAO for almost 18 years; my ending salary was $127,654 in today’s dollars. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years; my ending salary was $93,592 in today’s dollars. My certifications include CPA, Internal Auditor, Government Financial Manager, and Forensic Accountant.)
http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_32728299/column-auditor-resumes-dont-add-up

(FROM THE ARTICLE: NOT MUCH has changed in the nearly four years since the Lowell City Council was last on the hunt for a City Auditor. Councilors asked to pump up the pay and post the job in multiple languages this time around, but, with the three week application period now closed, several councilors were unsatisfied with the resumés that landed in their inbox. “We did raise the salary, but we’re not attracting the candidates,” said City Councilor Rodney Elliott. Is it déjà vu all over again? The council hired Bryan Perry in March 2016, after three rounds of candidates and six months. Perry got the gig with a $101,800 starting salary and $4,500 stipend for serving on the city’s Retirement Board. When he left the city for Wilmington on June 19, he was making $105,918 annually. The most recent posting for the job offers $100,000 to $113,000, plus the stipend. It’s the first posting for the job since Perry announced his departure. Should the city offer even more, some councilors wondered? Human Relations Manager Mary Callery listed the city auditor salaries for several other communities in the state. According to Callery, the auditor in Boston earns $140,000; in Cambridge, $110,000; in New Bedford, $120,000; in Quincy, $119,000; in Springfield, $109,000; in Worcester, $135,000; in Brockton, $114,000; in Arlington, $126,000. In Wilmington, Perry will be making $121,192.)
