DAILY HERALD
— OUTSTANDING: Wheaton plans to ban recreational pot sales, citing ‘unknowns’ of legalization – Katlyn Smith (DIERSEN: DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen, DuPage County Forest Preserve Commissioner Tim Whelan, Former Milton Township Trustee Don Sender, Wheaton Liquor & Tobacco Control Commission Chairman Mark Taylor, Gary Knosp, and me spoke against the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton at Wheaton’s public hearing on the issue Monday evening, August 26, 2019. Hearing attendees included Bob Cherry and Carl and Dagmar Lofgren.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190827/wheaton-plans-to-ban-recreational-pot-sales-citing-unknowns-of-legalization
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I just don’t see an advantage to being a first mover on this,” Mayor Phil Suess said. “And a very practical consideration: We say yes to this, the next discussion is where does it go? And I’m pretty sure we’re going to have a pretty profound discussion if we went that way in the context of ‘not in my backyard.'” Some council members also prefer to take that wait-and-see approach, indicating they could revisit public health and safety questions once the market establishes itself in towns that are now planning to allow dispensaries. “If we opt out now, we have the ability at any point to opt back in after time has passed and seeing OK, what has Lombard done?” Councilman Christopher Zaruba said. . .”People will prefer to buy their marijuana illegally to avoid the high costs due to taxes and regulation,” Councilwoman Suzanne Fitch said.)
— DuPage County taking more time to consider marijuana sales – Robert Sanchez (DIERSEN: At this meeting, Former Milton Township Trustee Don Sender and I urged DuPage County to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190827/dupage-county-taking-more-time-to-consider-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Board member Tim Elliott urged the county to opt out. “To me, it’s not a question of money,” the Glen Ellyn Republican said. “It’s about what’s the right thing to do for our citizens.” Elliott said it’s possible that state lawmakers will make changes to the cannabis law during the fall veto session. For example, the number of licenses statewide could be increased, he said. “So I would prefer to see us opt out, at least in the short-term, to see what our municipalities do and, frankly, to see what Springfield does,” Elliott said. . .”I am stunned to see that we would even contemplate allowing zoning in an area that close to a high school, whether the regulations are there or not,” said board member Robert Larsen, a Wheaton Republican. “I think that’s a big mistake, and I hope we don’t go that route.”)

— Slavery and the Holocaust: How Americans and Germans Cope With Past Evils – Deborah E. Lipstadt (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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In 2018 Google helped the Chinese Communists develop a social credit scoring system. The scoring system, first announced in 2014, rates China’s one billion citizens based on their behavior and associations. Already, nine million people with low scores have been blocked from buying tickets for domestic flights and trains. As horrible as this sounds the Silicon Valley tech giants are already using a similar system here in the United States. And Facebook is using offline behavior to factor into their scoring system. . .On Monday Fast Company reported on how the social credit system can happen here. It already is. Alex Jones last year lost his YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Apple accounts on a single day due to comments he made YEARS AGO. Conservatives and Conservative publishers like The Gateway Pundit are already banned or censored by Facebook, Google, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc. Conservatives and patriotic Americans have had their Chase Bank accounts shut down. Conservatives, including this writer, have been blocked from home insurance companies from purchasing their product. Conservatives have their incomes targeted and make significantly less than fake news mainstream reporters. It goes on and on. The social media scoring is already taking place. This is our future, for all of us. And we have a party of wimps who are too afraid to stop this.)
