July 13 Morning Edition

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— LOOK WHO’s TALKING FOR THE GOP Illinois GOP Chairman Don Tracy sent a letter to Republican leaders Monday expressing frustration that MSNBC, CNN and local media turn to Republican consultants who “trash” other Republicans. “When they are listed as current or former party officials, it falsely gives the impression that these people are speaking for all Republicans in Illinois or the Chicago area,” according to Tracy’s email, obtained by Playbook. He doesn’t name names but it’s not hard to figure out that former state GOP Chairman Pat Brady doesn’t mince words about far-right Republicans when he’s interviewed by reporters. Tracy is the first downstate chairman of the Illinois GOP in more than 30 years. He lives in Springfield, three hours from Chicago, making it difficult to accommodate live broadcasts. So he’s now assigning two surrogate Republicans in northern Illinois, Kathleen Murphy and Ammie Kessem, to represent the party during TV interviews when he can’t make it. The issue is the surrogates tapped align better with Republicans south of I-80 than those in the Chicago area. Murphy is the former spokeswoman for former GOP gubernatorial candidate Jeanne Ives and a defender of Ives’ controversial TV ad attacking Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s record by featuring actors playing out sensitive cultural issues. It was uniformly criticized, including by the state GOP, for being racist, sexist and homophobic. Kessem, the 41st Ward GOP committeewoman, is a Chicago Police sergeant and avowed Donald Trump supporter. In an interview with Playbook, Tracy said that Murphy and Kessem “aren’t going out there to represent themselves. They are there to represent the Illinois GOP.” They will both work closely with Illinois GOP communication director Joe Hackler. “I don’t represent any wing of the party. I represent the entire Republican Party. And they will do the same,” Tracy said. Though Tracy’s TV accessibility to Chicago may be a challenge, the real problem for the GOP is handling the tension between moderate Republicans (generally in the northern part of the state) and those who align with Trumpism downstate. Party leaders kept quiet, for example, when asked to address controversial Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene coming to Illinois to stump for GOP Rep. Mary Miller. Along with backing up Tracy on TV, the GOP is working to expand its roster of voices to include women and minorities who can speak for the party. Tracy’s letter has already generated interest. Stepping up are GOP State Central Committee members Jay Reyes and Nimish Jani, Republican National Hispanic Assembly Chair Jesus Solorio, Palatine Township Republican committeeman Aaron Del Mar, and Diante Johnson, president of the Black Conservative Federation. – SHIA KAPOS
(DIERSEN: I have never hinted, implied, argued, or shouted that I or my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters have in any way ever spoken for the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), or Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO). Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance their platform. I have always encouraged the IRP, DCRCC, MTRO, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, and Illinois Center Right Coalition to help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Republican Party platform including its traditional marriage/family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, Second Amendment, and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks.)

I would focus on those who hated Sandberg’s demographics: Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, older, etc. I would focus on those who destroy those like me they cannot manipulate/dominate, who refuse to glorify and praise them, who refuse to pander to them, who refuse to serve as one of their operatives or dupes, who refuse to cover-up their wrong doing, and/or who refuse to give them money.)

CAPITOL FAX
— SEPTEMBER 11, 2004 FLASHBACK: Wheaton: Alan Keyes’ Patriot Day speech warmly received – Dave Diersen
(DIERSEN: Robert Sandberg attended this event.)
https://capitalfax.blogspot.com/2008/09/gopusa-illinois-daily-clips-september_11.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Over 500 came to Wheaton’s beautiful Memorial Park on Saturday, September 11, 2004, to meet Alan Keyes and to hear his remarks concerning Patriot Day and his campaign. Alan was warmly received by the crowd which gave him several standing ovations during his 20-minute speech. State Senators Kirk Dillard and Peter Roskam served as Master of Ceremonies. Senator Dillard introduced the elected officials and candidates who were on the band shell stage with Alan while he gave his speech — State Senator Raymond Soden, State Representative Randy Hultgren, State Representative Candidate Roger Jenisch, DuPage County Board Commissioner Debra Olson, DuPage Coroner candidate Peter Siekmann, Illinois GOP State Central Committeeman Ron Smith, Milton Township Assessor Jim Gumm, and Milton Township Trustee Don Sender. The band shell stage is the same one that Bob Dole gave a speech from immediately after he walked in Wheaton’s 1996 Independence Day Parade — CNN broadcast that speech live. Senator Dillard recognized event attendees including DuPage County Auditor Jim Rasins, DuPage County Regional Superintendent of Schools Darlene Ruscitti, DuPage Regional School Board Trustee Tim Whelan, and District 89 School Board Trustee Howard Levine. He recognized the event’s sponsors — State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman, Oberweis Dairy, John Cox, All Star Printing, himself, Randy Hultgren, Debra Olson, Pete Siekmann, Tim Whelan, Don Sender, and Diersen Consulting. Senator Roskam gave some remarks concerning September 11 and he introduced Alan. Apparently, even though the Daily Herald, the Wheaton Leader, and the Wheaton Sun had been asked to cover the event, the only reporters who covered the event were Rich Samuels with WTTW’s Chicago Tonight and Dave Diersen with GOPUSA.com. Samuels and Diersen made VHS recordings of Alan’s speech. Event photographers included Matt Ferguson and Don Sender. The free event provided attendees with a great opportunity to enjoy great food, to meet their neighbors, to meet their elected officials, and to meet candidates who will appear on November 2 ballots in DuPage County. On July 5 last year, 200 attended a similar event in Wheaton’s Prairie Path Park, including Jack Ryan, Jim Oberweis, Andy McKenna, Chirinjeev Kathuria, and John Cox. Attendees at this year’s event enjoyed hot dogs and Polish sausages personally handed out by Debbie Malek from her cart. Debbie normally locates her cart at Cross and Wesley Streets at the southeast corner of Wheaton’s Adam’s Park, across the street from Wheaton’s Public Library. All the hot dogs and sausages were paid for by State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman. In its September 12, 2004 edition, the Daily Herald ran a major front page story on Debbie that included six pictures and quotes from Ron Smith. Attendees also enjoyed Oberweis ice cream and flavored milk personally handed out by Jim Oberweis and Sandy Rios from an Oberweis truck. Attendees enjoyed Jays potato chips provided by John Cox, salads and desserts that attendees brought to the picnic or were purchased with cash contributions, and soft drinks and ice paid for by the sponsors. Event costs included $180 for a $1 million insurance policy required for City of Wheaton and Wheaton Park District permits. The many people who helped make the event successful include Karen Diersen, Mark Prutzman, Bill Hogan, Mark Stern, and Gary Muehlfelt. Attendees included Rod McCulloch, Peter LaBarbera, Frank Penn, Richard Johns, Robert Gordon, George Kocan, Robert Sandberg, Leonard Sanchez, Lori Carlson, Richard Russo, Steve Carlson, Keith Carlson, Jason Hinkle, Mark Klage, Patrick Ryan, and Dr. Bob Krzyzewski. Alan will again be speaking in DuPage County on Friday, October 8, at 6:30 PM, at the Milton Township Republican Central Committee’s Viva Oktoberfest fundraiser at the Carlisle Banquet Hall in Lombard. Tickets are $45 or $400/table of ten.)
— SEPTEMBER 11, 2005 FLASHBACK: Nalepa gives keynote address at Wheaton’s 2005 Patriot Day picnic; Birkett, Brady, Fortner, Furstenau, Hultgren, Kathuria, Oberweis, Poe, Rauschenberger, Roskam, Rutherford, Wallace, Wegman, Zaruba, and many others attend – Dave Diersen
https://capitalfax.blogspot.com/2008/09/gopusa-illinois-daily-clips-september_11.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Wheaton’s 2005 Patriot Day picnic in Memorial Park honored the individuals who lost their lives as a result of terrorist attacks against America and showed support for America, for its war on terrorism, and for its military and law enforcement personnel. I had the honor of introducing the event’s master of ceremonies — nationally-known conservative activist, Fox News Channel contributor, and Culture Campaign President Sandy Rios. Wheaton Second Baptist Church Pastor Andre Allen gave the invocation. Korean War veteran Ron Smith led the pledge of allegiance. Harry Newman sang the National Anthem. Rios read President Bush’s 2005 Patriot Day proclamation, introduced the elected officials and candidates, and thanked the event sponsors. DuPage County Board Member Bob Heap spoke about DuPage’s implementation of 9/11 recommendations. 9/11 Families for a Secure America founder Peter Gadiel gave an outstanding speech about lessons learned from September 11, 2001. West Point graduate and USO board member Jim Nalepa gave an outstanding Patriot Day address. Newman concluded the program by singing “We still have heroes.” Attendees enjoyed delicious Debbie Malek hot dogs and Polish sausages courtesy of State Farm Insurance Agent Mark Prutzman, delicious pork sandwiches courtesy of State Representative Ray Poe, delicious Dr. Bob Rauschenbergers courtesy of State Senator Steve Rauschenberger, delicious Jays Potato Chips courtesy of John Cox, delicious ice cream and flavored milk courtesy of Jim Oberweis, and delicious soft drinks and bottled water courtesy of Charinijeev Kathuria. All Star Printing provided event flyers and DuPage County Board Chairman Bob Schillerstrom and Kane County Recorder Sandy Wegman covered the $385 cost of event insurance. The picnic provided attendees with a great opportunity to meet and speak with veterans, law enforcement officials, fire department officials, elected officials, and candidates. Many elected officials attended including State Senators Bill Brady, Carol Pankau, Rauschenberger, Peter Roskam, and Dan Rutherford; State Representatives Randy Hultgren, Roger Jenisch, and Poe; County officials Joe Birkett, Fred Bucholz, Heap, Gwen Henry, Gary King, Debra Olson, Jim Rasins, Darlene Ruscitti, Brien Sheahan, Pete Siekmann, Penny Wegman, Sandy Wegman, Tim Whelan, Jon Zahm, and John Zaruba; Township officials Sal Falbo, Moon Kahn, Gary Muehlfelt, and Leonard Sanchez; Municipal officials Alan Bolds, Jim Carr, Liz Corry, Mike Fortner, Dick Furstenau, and Howard Levine. Many candidates attended including congressional candidate Roskam; gubernatorial candidates Birkett, Brady, Oberweis, and Rauschenberger; Lieutenant Governor candidates Kathuria, Poe, Eric Wallace, and Wegman; Secretary of State candidate Rutherford; State Senate candidates Furstenau and Hultgren; and State Representative candidate Fortner. Former DuPage County Recorder Rick Carney and Mrs. Illinois Kaili Harding and her husband who graduated from West Point and served in both Afghanistan and Iraq also attended. By tomorrow, when I know how many of each type of food and beverage was served, I’ll have a better estimate of the number of the hundreds of people who attended. The many attendees included David Carlin, Dennis Driscoll, Bob Grahm, Joyce Hundhausen, Mark Klage, Jim Leahy, Bruce Mitroff, Mark Stern, Rick Veenstra, and Winston Waller. DuPage County is the second most populous county in Illinois and Wheaton is its county seat. Why didn’t the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Daily Herald, Wheaton Leader, or the Wheaton Sun report on Wheaton’s Patriot Day event? Generally, the liberal media does not report on an event unless it can use that reporting to harm conservatives, that is, harm people who support the Republican platform. The vast majority of the attendees at Wheaton’s Patriot Day picnic were conservative Republicans — why didn’t more Democrats and RINOs attend? A number of Democrats told me that they would not attend because they are Democrats and because their attendance might be misinterpreted as support for President Bush. Attendance would have been even greater if fewer Democrats didn’t argue that Republicans have highjacked Patriot Day to promote the Patriot Act and President Bush’s policies in Iraq; if Blagojevich, Durbin, Hynes, Madigan, Obama, Quinn, or Topinka had helped sponsor event or confirmed that they would attend; if more Democrats and more RINOs shared the attitude toward patriotism and toward Patriot Day that Republicans have; if the Daily Herald had promoted the event like it promoted Naperville’s event; if there were not so many other competing events; and if the temperature/humidity had been lower.)

— Joe Biden’s Car Collection: From the Corvette Stingray to an Electric Ford – SAMANTHA LOCK
(DIERSEN: I should write an article that compares and contrasts Biden’s car collection with my car collection.)
https://www.newsweek.com/joe-bidens-car-collection-corvette-stingray-electric-ford-1592808

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray However, the car reported to be closest to his heart—a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray—was gifted to the then 24-year-old as a wedding present from his father in the August of 1967. The Goodwood-green colored convertible still sits in Biden’s garage and even appeared alongside his presidential campaign. “I love this car. Nothing but incredible memories,” Biden said standing next to the vintage vehicle in a campaign video from August 2020. “Every time I get in I think of my dad and Beau [his late son].” The 1967 variant was the last in the C2 Corvette range. “The Secret Service won’t let me drive it. I’m not allowed to drive anything. It’s the one thing I hate about this job. I’m serious,” Biden said. With up to 350 horsepower, a V8 engine and the ability to reach speeds of 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds, it’s easy to see why Biden treasures the 1967 classic. Appearing on an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage in October of 2016, Biden impressed viewers by taking the comedian for a spin and performing a burnout in his ’67 Corvette Stingray. “I’ve always loved to drive… I like speed,” he told Leno while adding that his sons Beau and Hunter had the car’s engine rebuilt as a Christmas gift. According to Biden at the time, the meeting marked only the third time the Secret Service allowed him to drive his beloved car during his eight-year stint as vice president.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— West Side activist Beverly Miles says she’ll run against Pritzker A former City Council candidate says the governor has “dropped the ball” on key issues for African Americans. – GREG HINZ
(DIERSEN: To defeat Miles, will Pritzker promise to use state government to give even more preference to Democrats who are minority, female, disabled, non-married, parents, veterans, younger, LGBTQers, non-Christian, non-Protestant, and to those who have financial, health, and/or other problems, those who have criminal records, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, etc.?)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/greg-hinz-politics/west-side-activist-says-shell-run-against-pritzker
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement, Miles said her platform will include Medicare for all, reparations for slavery, jobs for veterans, reducing gun violence and creating “economic development in blighted communities.” In a phone interview, the West Garfield Park resident dropped the “blighted” but otherwise stuck to her view that, despite signing a major criminal justice reform package into law and frequent appearances with Black leaders, Pritzker has “exaggerated” his accomplishments. “The governor dropped the ball on recreational marijuana. We didn’t get our fair share” of sales licenses, she said. “He dropped the ball on curbing street violence. He dropped the ball on mental health.” Miles has an engaging personal story. Her campaign biography notes that she not only raised her own daughter but adopted the children of four of her siblings who were caught in the crack cocaine epidemic. But her political experience is limited to a race for 28th Ward alderman, which she lost to Jason Ervin.)

My Democrat superiors in the federal government took many adverse actions against me, including forcing me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, because I had the following position: Employers should not give preference to their employees because of their political affiliation, race, gender, age, veteran status, religion, national origin, or length of time their ancestors were in America. My Democrat superiors in the federal government gave tremendous preference to their Democrat employees who were minority, female, younger, veteran, non-Christian, non-Protestant, non-German American, and/or those whose ancestors had not been in America for a long time. While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, virtually all my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— JULY 25, 2007 FLASHBACK: Republicans made parade great event – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(MY LETTER TO SUBURBAN LIFE EDITOR: One of the reasons why parents bring their children to parades is to see marching bands and animals. This year, for Wheaton’s Independence Day parade, in my roles as the www.GOPUSA.com Illinois editor, as the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman and as a Milton Township Republican precinct committeeman, I had the honor of recruiting Republicans and Republican organizations to sponsor two outstanding parade entries: The Chicago Highlanders Pipes and Drums band and Big Queenie, a 38-year-old, 10,000 pound Asian female elephant. With the elephant being the proud symbol of the Republican Party, I am very happy to report that Big Queenie won the parade’s Best Political Entry award. Outstanding Republican parade entries included Joe Birkett, DuPage County District 4 (Grant Eckhoff, Mike Formento, J.R. McBride and Debra Olson), Mike Fortner, Gwen Henry, Randy Hultgren, Chris Kachiroubas, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Ron Paul supporters, Peter Roskam, Steve Sauerberg and Bob Schillerstrom. Big Queenie, who recently visited Wheaton with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the DuPage County fairgrounds, walked the parade route behind Congressman Peter Roskam’s float. Many who stopped by the staging area before the parade kicked off took advantage of the opportunity to see the beautiful and very gentle elephant up close and take pictures of her. I hope that Republican sponsorship of Big Queenie and the outstanding Chicago Highlanders Pipe and Drums in the parade will become a tradition. Many thanks again to the following outstanding 30 Republicans and one Republican political organization who contributed from $50 to $250 each for a total of $3,300 to sponsor the Chicago Highlanders and/or Big Queenie: Mary Jo Arndt, Alan Bolds, Fred Bucholz, David Carlin, Roger Claar, Franco Coladipietro, Mike Connelly, Paul Daniels, Kirk Dillard, DuPage County Young Republicans, Bob Earl, Jim Flickinger, Mike Formento, Mike Fortner, Mike Gresk, Gwen Henry, Randy Hultgren, Bob Jacobsen, Chris Kachiroubas, Gary King, Mark Kmiecik, Bob Larsen, J.R. McBride, Debra Olson, Mike Prueter, Peter Roskam, Darlene Ruscitti, Leonard Sanchez, Ron Smith, Phil Suess and Tim Whelan. Also, many thanks again to All Star Printing for printing the many parade fliers that I hand-delivered to every home and business on the parade route.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Equity was a theme of Saturday’s Juneteenth Metro-East “Freedom in Equity” Festival, which was organized by the Taylors. . .“Reparations now,” Terrance said about what he wants to see happen next now that Juneteenth is officially a national holiday. “Reparations now. We got Juneteenth, and now that’s the strategy. “ . . . “It means next steps,” Stephanie said. “It means time to move even further. This was just one step. This was about acknowledging history, and now it is time to make sure equity is realized … that looks like reparations. That looks like the Crown Act. That looks like really experiencing equity.” . . . “I’m going to be honest, I don’t even celebrate the Fourth of July anymore,” Thomas, 38, said. I haven’t celebrated it in the past few years, so I don’t intend on celebrating it anymore. It’s not trying to be one kind of way, it’s just that I’m excited about my heritage and my people, and at any given moment, I want to celebrate it if not every day.” . . . “While the end of slavery is an important milestone in our crucial history, we know it has been followed by over 150 years of continued oppression and inequity,” Greenwood said.)

He also asserted that “Christians must stand up and fight against evil” and questioned, “What’s happy about being perverted?”)

What it is Pride is excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise.

— OUTRAGEOUS: The Tunes of Glory Pipes and Drums will not march in Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade and it is still unclear if Wheaton’s high school bands will march in the parade. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: Since 2005, DuPage Republicans have donated $2,500/year to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. But this year, outrageously, Wheaton stopped accepting sponsorships. For many years, $1,000 of the $2,500 DuPage Republican sponsorships was earmarked for the Tunes of Glory Pipes and Drums. But today, the band advised me that it would not be marching in the parade this year because Wheaton had not invited the band to march, and therefore, it accepted an invitation from Glen Ellyn to march in its parade. The band cannot march in both parades this year because not all of the band’s members are available to march in two parades back to back, and this year, Glen Ellyn’s parade starts at noon, only 1 hour after Wheaton’s parade starts. Wheaton should have contracted with the Tunes of Glory Pipes and Drums and the high school bands to march in Wheaton’s parade months ago with an escape clause if Pritzker banned the parade. Needless-to-say, anyone who tries to blame me for the Tunes of Glory Pipes and Drums not marching in Wheaton’s Independence Day Parade is wrong. Further, anyone who tries to blame me if the Wheaton North and/or Wheaton Warrenville South bands do not march in Wheaton’s Independence Day Parade is wrong.)

(DIERSEN: To facilitate hiring and promoting Democrats who are minority and/or female, the Democrats who run the federal government have dropped many hiring and promotion requirements. 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.)

ABC7
— JULY 4, 2016 FLASHBACK: Politicking at Independence Day parades
(DIERSEN: Republicans who participated in Wheaton’s outstanding 2016 Independence Day Parade included: U.S. Senator Mark Kirk; Governor Bruce Rauner, First Lady Diana Rauner, and Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Sanguinetti; State Senator Mike Connelly and State Representative Jeanne Ives; State Representative Peter Breen; DuPage County Board candidate Tim Elliott, DuPage County Board members Grant Eckhoff and Amy Grant, and DuPage County Forest Preserve Commissioner Tim Whelan; and the Milton Township Republican Organization. Please thank those who helped promote/sponsor the parade and the fireworks: Bob Berlin, Peter Breen, Liam Brennan, Fred Bucholz, Mike Connelly, Tim Elliott, Amy Grant, Gwen Henry, Jeanne Ives, Richard Jorgensen, Chris Kachiroubas, Mark Kirk, Brian Krajewski, Bob Lyon, Deanne Mazzochi, James Mendrick, Chris Nybo, Peter Roskam, Darlene Ruscitti, Phil Suess, Tim Whelan, and Jim Zay. SEE: https://gopillinois.com/uncategorized/july-4-evening-edition/ )
https://abc7chicago.com/politics/politicking-at-independence-day-parades/1413028/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Republican-rich Wheaton, one guy yelled at Governor Bruce Rauner to balance the state’s budget. “Balance the budget! Balance the budget!” yelled Buzz Ruttenberg at the governor. “I blame everyone, but he is the leader and when the ship is sinking you look to the captain,” said Ruttenberg when asked who he blamed for the Illinois budget crisis. ABC7 Eyewitness News spoke with a Wheaton resident Kahty Corniels who was trying to deliver a message to the governor via a sign saying, “No budget; no votes.” “I think he saw it. I don’t think he wants to make eye contact with me,” said Corniels. “I’m just tired of it. These are adults. We elected them and they can’t even make a decision on how to run the state.” The governor wasn’t much into straying from the script today. “Do you hear from people as you march about what’s going on in Springfield about the budget?” ABC7 Eyewitness News reporter Ben Bradley asked the governor. “No, today we celebrate the independence of America,” said Rauner. Nationally, Hillary Clinton had several supporters marching in Wheaton’s parade, but next to no one showed up on Donald Trump’s behalf, despite the fact the county is overwhelmingly Republican. Then again, the state’s GOP senator has said he won’t vote for Trump. “You were the first to come out and say Trump is unfit. Does that mean you’re voting for Hillary Clinton?” Bradley asked Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk. “No, David Petraeus is who I’d like to write-in. I think he’s better qualified. We need someone who will be the best commander-in-chief we’ve ever had,” said Sen. Kirk.)

(DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats promote BLM and LGBTQ.)
https://abc7chicago.com/community-events/chicago-drag-queens-planning-2nd-blm-march-/10768191/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After the murder of George Floyd last year Jo MaMa organized the Drag March for Change. “I was just like let’s do this. Let’s get all my drag brothers and sisters together and try to make a change,” they said. The march brought thousands of people together on the North Side in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. MaMa is now organizing another march Sunday afternoon beginning at Belmont and Halsted. “We are still being shot down in the streets. We are still being treated as second class citizens and now people are paying attention. There really seems to be hope,” they said. This year organizers are pushing for cutting the Chicago Police Department budget and investing more in social services and community programs. They also want uniformed police officers banned at Pride festivities. Organizers said it’s important for members of the LGBTQI+ community to speak up about racial injustices. “We have always been the trailblazers. We have always been the front runners. We are the ones that shake things up and make the change. We are also extremely creative,” MaMa said. Tatyana Chante, who is one the Drag March for Change organizers, said that bringing about change takes time. “I’m hoping that people realize last year wasn’t just a one off, one and done,” he said. “This is a continuation. This is going to take work.” MaMa said drag is not required for the march and all allies are welcome to participate.)

(DIERSEN: How many people do you know who have taken lots of diversity training? The Democrats who run the federal government require all their employees to take lots of diversity training. I worked for the Democrats who ran the federal government for almost 30 years. I should write a book about all the diversity training that I took. That training hinted/implied/argued/shouted that Republicans are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should gotten rid of once and for all. That helps explain why federal employees who are Democrat do not want to work for, work with, or supervise federal employees who are Republican. Virtually all federal employees are Democrats.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Democrats stop Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

(THE ARTICLE: Since 2005, Republicans have helped sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks, but this year, Democrats stopped that.

Next, of course, Democrats will stop Republican candidates and the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO) from having entries in the parades.

Democrats can stress that none of the following have spoken in opposition to Democrats stopping Republicans from sponsoring Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks: a) MTRO leaders Chris LeVan, Chairman; Yadav Nathwani, Vice Chairman; John Monino, Secretary; and Beth Tatro, Treasurer; b) DuPage County Republican Central Committee leaders Jim Zay, Chairman; Deanna Wilkins, Honorary Chairman; Paul Hinds, Secretary; and Gwen Henry, Treasurer; and c) Illinois Republican Party leaders Don Tracy, Chairman; Mark Shaw, Co-Chairman; Mike Bigger, Secretary; Judy Dieklman, Treasurer; and 18 State Central Committee members including Bob Grogan.

Further, Democrats can stress that MTRO Secretary John Monino spoke very strongly during Wheaton’s June 7, 2021 City Council meeting in favor of Michael Bernard, the Wheaton Park District Executive Director, who has successfully led the effort to stop Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks.

As I have done since 2005, I again stand ready, willing, and able to again raise $2,500 from DuPage Republicans so that they can again be the top sponsor for Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

Sadly, so far, I have not been able to confirm that the Wheaton Park District has contracted with bagpipers or Wheaton high school bands to march in the parade.

The following Republicans donated money to help sponsor Wheaton’s 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and/or 2019 Independence Day parades and fireworks: Michael Barbier, Bob Berlin, Peter Breen, Liam Brennan, Fred Bucholz, Roger Claar, Mike Connelly, Dan Cronin, David Diersen, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elloitt, Paul Fullerton, Amy Grant, Chris Heidorn, Gwen Henry, Paul Hinds, Babette Holder, Jeanne Ives, Robert Jacobsen, Richard Jorgensen, Chris Kachiroubas, Marty Keller, Mark Kmiecik, Mark Kirk, Brian Krajewski, Bob Larsen, Robert Lyon, Jeff MacKay, Deanne Mazzochi, Paula McGowen, James Mendrick, Dave Molitor, John Monino, Chris Nybo, Karyn Romano, Evelyn Sanguinetti, Peter Roskam, Darlene Ruscitti, Phil Suess, Brian Telander, John Vires, Ann Celine Walsh, Tim Whelan, Kevin Wiley, Karen Wilson, John Zaruba, and Jim Zay.)

Starting in 1966, when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have used my avoiding the draft against me big time. I should write a book about that.)

https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/557457-senate-gop-blocks-bill-to-combat-gender-pay-gap
(FROM THE ARTICLE; The bill would limit employers to “bona fide” factors such as education, training and experience when justifying pay differentials in wage discrimination claims. Employers would also be prohibited from retaliating against workers who compare salaries and barred from inquiring about prospective employees’ salary histories during the hiring process. The bill would further direct the Labor Department to establish a grant program providing negotiation skills and training for girls and women.)

— My critics/opponents want the following to be a front page top of fold newspaper headline: “Democrats stop DuPage Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade and Fireworks.” – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
(THE ARTICLE: I looks like those who want to stop DuPage Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day parade and fireworks are going to win. During Wheaton’s City Council meeting yesterday evening, none of the leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization (MTRO), DuPage County Republican Central Committee (DCRCC), or Illinois Republican Party (IRP) spoke in favor of letting DuPage Republicans help sponsor the parade and fireworks. Further, the Milton Township Supervisor and MTRO Secretary John Monino spoke very strongly in favor of Michael Bernard, the Wheaton Park District Executive Director, who is leading the effort to stop DuPage Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks.

As I have done since 2005, I again stand ready, willing, and able to again raise $2,500 from DuPage Republicans so that they can again be the top sponsor for Wheaton’s Independence Day parade and fireworks.

Sadly, so far, I have not been able to confirm that the Wheaton Park District has contracted with bagpipers or Wheaton high school bands to march in the parade.

The following include those who want to stop DuPage Republicans from helping sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks:

— Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who want to punish Trump by punishing Republicans in Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois;

June 4 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— Email that I sent Wheaton and Wheaton Park District Leaders this morning with CCs to Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party Leaders – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com


(THE EMAIL: Please allow DuPage Republicans to help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade.

As we all know, Wheaton’s Independence Day Parades have always been very important. DuPage County has more residents than six states and Wheaton is its County Seat. Bob Dole walked in the parade in 1996. The Obamas walked in the parade in 2004. Many U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, Illinois statewide officials, Illinois Senators, Illinois Representatives, DuPage countywide officials, DuPage County District officials, judges, and justices have walked in the parades.

Since 2005, DuPage Republicans have helped sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day Parades. For many years, DuPage Republicans have been the parade’s top sponsor by contributing $2,500 with $1,200 earmarked for the combined Wheaton North and Wheaton-Warrenville South Bands and $1,000 earmarked for bagpipers. I have had the honor of raising those contributions from Republican candidates, Republican elected officials, and Republican party leaders. In 2007, I raised an additional $2,000 from Republicans for an elephant to walk behind Peter Roskam in the parade.

But yesterday, Wheaton Park District Superintendent of Marketing & Special Events Amy Seklecki advised me by phone that for this year’s parade, parade sponsorships will not be allowed. I told her that I would appeal that decision.

For many years, Wheaton has given the Wheaton Park District $30,000 a year with $20,000 earmarked for fireworks and $10,000 earmarked for parade entries. I certainly hope that the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization are encouraging all the candidates who will be on 2022 Republican primary ballots in DuPage County, Milton Township, and especially Wheaton a) to have an entry in Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade and b) help sponsor the parade. This is especially true for Republican candidates for U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, Illinois statewide offices, Illinois Senator, Illinois Representative, DuPage countywide offices, DuPage district offices, and judicial races.

Republican entries in Wheaton’s outstanding 2019 Independence Day Parade were Bob Berlin, Amy Grant, Chris Kachiroubas, Evelyn Sanguinetti, Ann Celine Walsh, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee. Those who walked with the entries included Almiron, Anderson, Carlson, Caruso, Colgan, Collins, Falbo, Fisher, Furstenau, Ives, Keller, LeVan, Marquardt, Marshall, Monino, Muehlfelt, Nathwani, Ruhl, Ryan, Saake, Shaw, and Whelan. With their $2,500 contribution, “DuPage County Republicans” were again the top sponsor for the parade and fireworks. Contributions were: $500 from Roger Claar; $250 each from Berlin, Sanguinetti, Phil Suess, and Tim Whelan; and $100 each from Michael Barbier, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Grant, Chris Heidorn, Babette Holder, Jeanne Ives, Marty Keller, Bob Larsen, and Walsh. I hand-delivering 500 flyers (printed courtesy of Alpha Graphics) to the residences and businesses on the parade route that included the Republican entries in the parade, the sponsor’s names, and the amounts they contributed.

Again, please allow DuPage Republicans to help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade.

Thanks,
Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— In his June 4, 2021 8:36 AM email to me with CCs to all the Wheaton, Wheaton Park District, Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Illinois Republican Party Leaders, Wheaton Park District Executive Director Michael Benard stated: “While we are not accepting “sponsorships” for any aspect of the parade, you are welcome to make a general donation in support of the parade. It is not appropriate for the park district to sell sponsorships to political parties specifically identified to support the school district marching bands and we will not do so. As local governments, our elections and mission related activities are non-partisan. If your organization chooses to make a parade donation, it will be accepted with gratitude. Please know that it will not be appropriate for you to claim “sponsorship” of any school district or park district parade entries. I look forward to seeing you and those you represent on Independence Day as we all come together to celebrate our great Nation and our freedom.”

I responded to Mr. Benard and all the aforesaid leaders with the following: “Needless-to-say, your new Wheaton Independence Day parade policy statement is a complete and dramatic reversal of Wheaton Independence Day parade policy that has been in place since at least 2005. Needless-to-say, any such complete and dramatic Wheaton Independence Day parade policy reversal would have to  be voted on and passed by the Wheaton City Council before it could be implemented.” – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

(CORRECTION: In yesterday evening’s newsletter, I erroneously left out the word “not.” The sentence should read “But today, Wheaton Park District Superintendent of Marketing & Special Events Amy Seklecki advised me by phone that for this year’s parade, parade sponsorships will not be allowed.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “For many CPS graduates, the college experience is far less straightforward than going to a four-year university or transferring from a two-year school. While many graduates enroll in two-year colleges as a ‘steppingstone,’ that’s not always how it works out. More than three-quarters of students in the CPS class of 2011 who went straight to a two-year college reported that they planned to complete at least a bachelor’s degree, according to the UChicago report. But only around one-fifth transferred to a four-year school,”)

June 3 Evening Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— CALL FOR ACTION: Please email the following ASAP and urge them to let DuPage County Republicans help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade: Wheaton Mayor Philip Suess at psuess@wheaton.il.us and Councilman East District Michael Barbier at mbarbier@wheaton.il.us and Councilman North District Scott Brown at sbrown@wheaton.il.us and Councilwoman At-Large Erica Bray-Parker at ebrayparker@wheaton.il.us and Councilwoman At-Large Suzanne Fitch at sfitch@wheaton.il.us  and Councilwoman West District Lynn Robbins at lrobbins@wheaton.il.us and Councilman South District Scott Weller at sweller@wheaton.il.us  and Wheaton Park District President Bob Frey and Vice President John Kelly and Commissioners John Kelly and William Barrett and Kevin Fahey and Terry Mee and Ray Morrill and John Vires at commissioners@wheatonparks.org .
http://www.gopillinois.com

(BACKGROUND: Wheaton’s Independence Day Parades have always been very important. DuPage County has more residents than six states and Wheaton is its County Seat. Bob Dole walked in the parade in 1996. The Obamas walked in the parade in 2004. Many U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, Illinois statewide officials, Illinois Senators, Illinois Representatives, DuPage countywide officials, DuPage County District officials, judges, and justices have walked in the parades.

Since 2005, DuPage Republicans have helped sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day Parades. For many years, DuPage Republicans have been the parade’s top sponsor by contributing $2,500 with $1,200 earmarked for the combined Wheaton North and Wheaton-Warrenville South Bands and $1,000 earmarked for bagpipers. I have had the honor of raising those contributions from Republican candidates, Republican elected officials, and Republican party leaders. In 2007, I raised an additional $2,000 from Republicans for an elephant to walk behind Peter Roskam in the parade. But today, Wheaton Park District Superintendent of Marketing & Special Events Amy Seklecki advised me by phone that for this year’s parade, parade sponsorships will not be allowed. I told her that I would appeal that decision. For many years, Wheaton has given the Wheaton Park District $30,000 a year with $20,000 earmarked for fireworks and $10,000 earmarked for parade entries.

I certainly hope that the Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Organization are encouraging all the candidates who will be on 2022 Republican primary ballots in DuPage County, Milton Township, and especially Wheaton a) to have an entry in Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade and b) help sponsor the parade. This is especially true for Republican candidates for U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, Illinois statewide offices, Illinois Senator, Illinois Representative, DuPage countywide offices, DuPage district offices, and judicial races.

Republican entries in Wheaton’s outstanding 2019 Independence Day Parade were Bob Berlin, Amy Grant, Chris Kachiroubas, Evelyn Sanguinetti, Ann Celine Walsh, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee. Those who walked with the entries included Almiron, Anderson, Carlson, Caruso, Colgan, Collins, Falbo, Fisher, Furstenau, Ives, Keller, LeVan, Marquardt, Marshall, Monino, Muehlfelt, Nathwani, Ruhl, Ryan, Saake, Shaw, and Whelan. With their $2,500 contribution, “DuPage County Republicans” were again the top sponsor for the parade and fireworks. Contributions were: $500 from Roger Claar; $250 each from Berlin, Sanguinetti, Phil Suess, and Tim Whelan; and $100 each from Michael Barbier, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Grant, Chris Heidorn, Babette Holder, Jeanne Ives, Marty Keller, Bob Larsen, and Walsh. I hand-delivering 500 flyers (printed courtesy of Alpha Graphics) to the residences and businesses on the parade route that included the Republican entries in the parade, the sponsor’s names, and the amounts they contributed.

Information on the parade and fireworks is at https://wheatonparkdistrict.com/events/july4/

Again, please email the aforesaid Wheaton and Wheaton Park District officials ASAP and urge them to let DuPage County Republicans help sponsor Wheaton’s 2021 Independence Day Parade.)
