— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)

Strategists say that trend is reflected on the 2020 trail, where President Trump has been primarily focused on rallying his base, using a number of tactics such as calling for a wall along the southern border and attacking prominent Democrats.)

— How to Calculate Damages in a Slander Case (DIERSEN: I should sue those who have slandered me. Their slandering me has caused me to lose a tremendous amount of income.) 
https://www.hg.org/legal-articles/how-to-calculate-damages-in-a-slander-case-38152

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Actual damages can be calculated to a certain dollar amount. They include all those damages that the plaintiff directly suffered due to the slander. This may include lost wages, lost earning capacity or loss of business opportunities. These may include the actual amounts lost or the amounts that are likely to be lost because of the slander. To calculate lost earnings, the plaintiff can add up the wages that he or she lost from being out of work because of the slanderous statement. This also includes any employment benefits that were lost, such as using sick days or paid time off to deal with the slanderous statement. Lost earning capacity is more difficult to prove and generally requires expert testimony. An expert may have to testify about how the plaintiff’s diminished earning capacity will affect his or her lifetime earnings. For example, if a person was working a $100,000 job and the slander caused him or her to be fired and to be ostracized from the position and was only able to earn $50,000, the annual amount of damages would start at $50,000. Reasonable pay increases based on the individual’s employment record would also be taken into consideration, as well as his or her prospects for promotion. Inflation may also be taken into consideration. An expert may have to evaluate a variety of evidence in order to determine the difference between the plaintiff’s projected earnings before the slander in order to compare these with the projected earnings after the slander. The economic expert may examine the plaintiff’s tax returns, the current and projected economic state and the industry in which the plaintiff is employed and was employed. If the plaintiff was a business owner, his or her losses may include the loss of existing clients and the lost business opportunities. Former clients may be called to testify that they stopped doing business because of the slander. An economic expert may be necessary to testify about the economic impact of such lost business opportunities and business goodwill.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— The 2020 presidential race hits Illinois: Delegate petition drives kick off Oct. 5 Though the Democratic presidential campaigns are focusing on the early state votes in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada in February, the contenders can’t ignore Illinois because the March 17 presidential primary comes early enough that it may make a difference. – Lynn Sweet

The Democrats, unlike the Republicans, insist on diverse slates, and have a lot of rules to make sure the slates are balanced for, among other factors, gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation and religion, with all this spelled out in the 47 pages of the Democratic Party of Illinois delegate selection plan.)

— McHenry County reviewing marijuana tax; Franks opposes setting tax at cap Franks voices concerns about setting it at state-established 3% cap – DREW ZIMMERMAN (DIERSEN: Disgustingly and tragically, the more available that pot is, the more pot that will be bought. QUESTION: Who buys pot? ANSWER: Those who have severe physical and/or mental health problems.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: However, Franks said he doesn’t think setting the tax at its cap is prudent. Therefore, he made a public recommendation to lower the rate. “You don’t want to make [marijuana sales taxes] so high that people are going to go and buy it in other counties,” Franks said. “Also, if it’s really high, it’s going to keep the illicit market going and encourage the illegal behavior that we’re trying to stamp out, so I think it’s bad business, and it’s also bad for our law enforcement.”)

— 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.”)

— San Francisco branded the NRA a ‘domestic terrorist organization.’ The gun-rights lobby is suing. – Katie Shepherd (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who violate my First Amendment rights, that is, those who stop people from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. Better yet, I should sue them.)
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. Brewer III said in a statement. “Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

Brewer III, the NRA’s lawyer. “There can be no place in our society for this manner of behavior by government officials. Fortunately, the NRA, like all U.S. citizens, is protected by the First Amendment.”)

How much will they say that your home, your vehicles, your possessions, your etc. is worth?)
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-10/richest-could-lose-hundreds-of-billions-under-warren-wealth-tax
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Massachusetts Senator Warren has proposed that the wealthiest 75,000 households pay an annual tax of 2% on each dollar of their net worth above $50 million. 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.)

FINDLAW
— Elements of Libel and Slander
https://injury.findlaw.com/torts-and-personal-injuries/elements-of-libel-and-slander.html
(FROM THE POSTING: Defamatory Statements One essential element in any defamation action is that the defendant knowingly or negligently published something defamatory about the plaintiff. 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)

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.)

— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD IN NAPERVILLE SUN: Naperville residents, schools weigh in on recreational marijuana debate – ERIN HEGARTY
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/naperville-sun/ct-nvs-marijuana-naperville-dispensary-council-decision-st-20190901-4s4cxuncqjb3nann4ued3on7pi-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three members of the nine-person City Council have been consistent in their oppositions to recreational marijuana. They are Patty Gustin, Kevin Coyne and Paul Hinterlong. On the other side, Judy Brodhead, Benny White and Mayor Steve Chirico have shown support for allowing recreational marijuana retail sales. The remaining three council members, Patrick Kelly, John Krummen and Theresa Sullivan, are somewhere in the middle and likely will ultimately decide whether Naperville will allow recreational marijuana dispensaries. . .School districts 203 and 204 sent letters to the city noting their reservations about Illinois’ new marijuana law, which takes effect Jan. 1. Sales will be legal only to people 21 and older. “The District 203 Board of Education, speaking on behalf of the many students, parents, district staff and administrators and community, has serious concerns about the impact of recreational marijuana sales on the teens in our school district. We urge the City Council to consider the impact of its actions on the teens in our community,” District 203′s letter said. The School District 204 Board of Education raised similar concerns. “While it will remain illegal for our students to purchase recreational marijuana, we have concerns that the increased availability in our community may lead to potential issues at school,” the District 204′s letter says. “With easier access to recreational marijuana in our community, what will be the long-term cognitive impact on our youth who use the drug?” North Central College also sent a letter, which did not so much take a stance on the issue but pointed out that “because marijuana remains illegal under federal law and federal financial assistance remains important to the College and our students, marijuana will continue to be banned on our campus.”)

https://www.thedailybeast.com/diamond-and-silk-lawyer-up
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pro-Trump vlogger duo Diamond and Silk are on a legal campaign this week, threatening to sue two bloggers unless they take down unflattering mentions of them. So far, though, the letters from the unnamed members of the “Diamond and Silk Legal Team”—which come with stern warnings not to share them publicly—have not worked as intended. The pair’s anonymous lawyer have sent at least two cease-and-desist aimed at stories that mention Diamond and Silk in connection with racist groups. One of the targeted blog posts, published on Wonkette, accused the African-American duo of helping to “prop up the most vile white supremacy.” Diamond and Silk’s mystery legal team wrote that the article “deliberately and maliciously slandered and defamed Diamond and Silk and the Diamond and Silk brand by deliberately and maliciously attaching their name to racist context.” The letter also includes a warning for Wonkette not to post about the letter: “This notice is not to be made public via online sources or any other sources in any manner.” Wonkette just made fun of the letter, published it in full anyway, and refused to take their story down.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Westerhout, whose access to the White House was revoked Thursday, made the off-the-record remarks at a dinner with reporters who were covering him during this month’s summer break in New Jersey. “Everything she said was off the record,” Trump told reporters. “And that still doesn’t really cover for her. She mentioned a couple of things about my children.” “I think the press is very dishonest because it was supposed to be off the record,” he added. “But, still, you don’t say things like she said, which were just a little bit hurtful to some people.” The president said Westerhout told him she had been drinking at the dinner. “She’s a very … good person,” Trump said. “I always felt she did a good job. … … I really think she had a bad night. … And I wish her well.” “[T]he press breaks off-the-records all the time because they are very dishonorable. Many of them. Not all of you, but many of them are very dishonorable.”)
