CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— What happens in Illinois politics when ultra-rich, anti-tax activists sit on the sidelines Neither the House nor Senate Republican caucuses are experiencing major backlash over the fact that large numbers of their members voted to raise taxes. – Tom McNamee 
https://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/2019/12/13/21021201/illinois-politics-tax-hikes-springfield-bruce-rauner-ken-griffin-richard-uihlein-rich-miller
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For the past few election cycles, pressure from powerful and/or well-funded groups and individuals would’ve scared any Republican incumbent away from such votes. But former Gov. Bruce Rauner and his vindictive checking account have faded into the sunset. The multi-million-dollar money pipeline from wealthy Republican activist Richard Uihlein to Dan Proft’s Liberty Principles PAC has been shut off. And, except for the $2 million he gave Bill Daley to run for mayor of Chicago earlier this year, Illinois’ richest resident Ken Griffin has been mostly quiet. Those three men contributed over $200 million to campaigns since late 2013. That’s a whole lot of cash to put the fear into anyone who crosses them. And it’s why almost all of the Republicans who voted for the 2017 tax hike and the override of Rauner’s veto decided not to run again, lest they be primaried to death. But those rich folks are mainly on the sidelines today.)

EFFINGHAM DAILY NEWS
— Are lobbyists such bad guys? – Jim Nowlan (DIERSEN: By definition, lobbyists are paid for what they do. I have never been a lobbyist because I have never been paid to lobby. To call me a lobbyist is to charge me with failing to register as being a lobbyist. SEE: https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/index/lobbyist/lobintro.html ) 
https://www.effinghamdailynews.com/opinion/columns/jim-nowlan-guest-columnist-are-lobbyists-such-bad-guys/article_932c1148-1df1-11ea-a61a-8b03af59eb24.html/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The term derives from those who hung around the lobbies outside the chambers of Congress back in the day of Abraham Lincoln, seeking to nab a lawmaker to persuade him to vote for or against the interests represented by the lobbyist. A lobbyist is an advocate, just as a lawyer is for his client. In the early 1990s, I was head of a statewide business group; half my job was to lobby. I was absolutely terrible at the job, which I left after just three years. An analyst by nature, I was always trying to see the merits and weaknesses of all sides of an argument. Wrong-o, when it comes to lobbying, where passionate advocacy of a client’s interests is the only position to take. Complex legislative bodies couldn’t function without lobbyists. In Illinois, 6,000 or so bills are introduced every biennial session. Lobbyists (I’d guess a third of whom are women today) distill often complex bills into understandable chunks of information. They also convey, importantly, just how intensely their clients’ memberships feel about an issue, helpful to a lawmaker seeking re-election.)

— Charges you could face for smoking cannabis around kids – Nikki McGee
https://newschannel20.com/news/local/charges-you-could-face-for-smoking-cannabis-around-kids
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the legalization of marijuana, law enforcement is warning parents to stay on the side of caution when using it at home. As marijuana’s legalization rolls out, the law is defining where it can and cannot be used. While you can smoke and pose it behind closed doors, rules change if you have children in the house. “You cannot knowingly use in close proximity [around] anyone under 21 years of age,” Illinois “Weed Lawyer” W. Scott Hanken said. Any marijuana kept in your house must also be in a pre-packaged, childproof container and kept out of reach. “It’s not a good idea to expose them to a mind-altering substance and we know there can be secondhand smoke that could be inhaled by the cannabis,” Sangamon County Sheriff Campbell said. “So it’s vital that if the parents are going to partake in this, that they don’t expose their children to it.” Sheriff Campbell said his department already investigates cases where they are tipped off about a child smelling like cannabis and sometimes even meth-making chemicals. It’s something they can take action on. “We would look at the totality of the circumstances and determine whether or not the parent was endangering the life or safety of a child,” Sheriff Campbell said. “At that time, we would decide whether or not to either immediately arrest them or to file charges through the state’s attorney’s office.” Mandated reporters, like teachers, are required to report suspected child neglect or endangerment to law enforcement. You also need to be careful if you watch other children. “If you also happen to have a child daycare in that residence, obviously you cannot use it or consume it there,” Hankin said. Any marijuana kept in the house must also be in a prepackaged, childproof container. In other words, kept out of reach. Although you can smoke on private property… Legally it can’t be around your child. The sheriff is also concerned about edibles, which are often packaged as treats like candy or baked goods. He especially wants parents to keep these items secure, since they might look tempting to a child.)

— Billionaires like Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer drown out competition – Nell Abernathy (DIERSEN: Everyone in government, politics, and journalism should be required to disclose their income, their assets, their liabilities, and where their net worth came from.) 
https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2019/12/09/billionaires-michael-bloomberg-tom-steyer-drown-out-competition-editorials-debates/4380364002/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For 40 years we have run our economy based on a flawed assumption: that the wealthy earned all their money from working harder than the rest of us, and that letting the wealthy keep all of their money will promote investment and job growth. However, prioritizing the interests of the 1% reduces competition and investment, increases economic insecurity and undermines democratic participation.)

— They Were Warned – Kathy Valente (DIERSEN: QUESTION TO ASK CANDIDATES: What have you done and what will you do to discourage the sale and use of pot?)
https://illinoisfamily.org/uncategorized/they-were-warned/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Marijuana and its foolish proponents easily convinced Illinois state lawmakers that legalization would decrease black market trade and ease the burden on our criminal justice system. IFI warned them that this naive notion was contradicted by the facts, and we shared ample evidence from states that had already approved “recreational” marijuana. The evidence is clear: the black market had been thriving because of legalization. Now we read that the California cannabis industry is in big trouble and want lawmakers to do something about it. What’s their problem? The black market is doing 73 percent of California’s marijuana business – or $8.7 billion. California is considered to be the largest cannabis market in the world. While 2019 is not yet over, it’s estimated that their total marijuana sales will top nearly $12 billion. Yes, the black market is thriving on the left coast, growing by leaps and bounds, and threatening to bury a quasi-legitimate (sic) industry. So much for the influx of revenue they’re anticipating.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg says employees at his news organization need to accept restrictions with their paycheck, including the ban on investigating their boss. Bloomberg, billionaire founder of Bloomberg News, was asked in a CBS News interview about rules put in place when he announced his candidacy: The organization’s reporters are not allowed to probe him and his finances, or any of his Democratic rivals. Bloomberg News says the restriction does not apply to President Donald Trump as the government’s leader. That prompted Trump’s campaign to say it would not allow Bloomberg reporters to cover its events.)

FORBES
— The Impact Of Unemployment On Male Well-Being – Adi Gaskell (DIERSEN: I have been underemployed since 1976 and unemployed since 1997.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adigaskell/2019/12/06/the-impact-of-unemployment-on-male-wellbeing/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The impact of unemployment on well-being is well documented, although research from a few years ago suggested that it’s “good work” rather than just work that is the key to mental well-being. With the traditional gender roles presenting the role of men as the bread winner for the family, it seems logical that unemployment would pose a particular burden on men, and that was the subject of a recent report from the IZA World of Labor. The report reveals that the number of working-age men outside the labor force is on the rise around the world, with this corresponding with a rise in stress and other mental health issues, including depression and anger. Indeed, male unemployment is also linked to a range of physical health concerns, including suicide and substance abuse that are raising mortality rates across the United States. The researchers believe the issues of male unemployment are strongest among low-skilled labor, with those in work also suffering from declining wages and status. This often ultimately results in men dropping out of the labor force entirely. Many of the issues facing unemployed men revolve around a loss of hope, and such issues were consistent around the world. That many unemployed men resort to opioid abuse merely exacerbates their slide into poor mental well-being. This is often accompanied by marriage failure and a decline in civic or religious participation. One’s social standing was a key factor in this, as the image and self-esteem of many working class men is wrapped up in their hard work ethic, so being unemployed carries considerable stigma.)

Some aldermen at the Nov. 18 council meeting encouraged residents to donate to the fund, in addition to the city’s pledged $10 million. “All amounts are accepted — including $10 million,” said Ald. Robin Rue Simmons (5th) at the meeting.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_Officer_Personnel_Management_Act

(FROM THE POSTING: DOPMA created stable and predictable career paths, institutionalized relatively short careers compared to private industry, and mandated the military adopt an “up or out” personnel management strategy (requiring officers who failed selection for promotion to be removed from the service). Although DOPMA accomplished many of its intended goals, many provisions and consequences of the legislation remain controversial. . .The DOPMA “system” generally provides two opportunities to advance to the next rank. Officers typically will go before selection boards in cohorts based on the year they were commissioned. The majority of officers are promoted “in zone” (or “primary zone”); officers not selected will go before the next board (“above zone”), typically held a year later. Officers who are not selected “above zone” (twice fail promotion) are required to separate from the service, retire if eligible, or by exception may continue to serve until retirement in their current grade (but will never again be considered for promotion). At the discretion of the services a small number of promotions may go to exceptional officers (“below zone”) who are promoted one or two years ahead of their cohort. Congress desired “due course” officers (those selected in the primary zone) to be promoted within set windows based on time served in the current grade and cumulative years of service. While not specified in DOPMA, Department of Defense policy established targets for selection to the next grade, as a percentage from the surviving cohort. Desired promotion rates and reporting requirements of service board results are regularly published by DoD. Current promotion guidelines are as follows:)

DAILY HERALD
— Whistleblowers are fundamental to honest government – Keith Peterson (DIERSEN: Democrat and RINO leaders do not want to hear me blow the whistle on political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation while I worked for the Post Office 1966-1969, IRS 1971-1980, and GAO 1980-1997. Democrat and RINO leaders want to get rid of Republicans, and especially Republicans who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, federal employees/retirees, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time. RINO leaders have far more in common with Democrats than they have with Republicans. RINO leaders in Illinois, in DuPage County, in Milton Township, in Glen Ellyn, and in Wheaton a) are not concerned at all that Democrats are taking over and b) focus on stopping me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and stopping everyone from reading those emails.)

POLITICO ILLINOIS
— “Introducing POLITICO’s 2020 Election Forecast: ratings for every national contest, from all 538 votes in the Electoral College, down to the 435 House districts — and everything in between.” The forecast is bright for incumbents in Illinois, but the 6th District seat held by Rep. Sean Casten is only leaning Dem and the 12th District seat held by Rep. Mike Bost is only leaning Republican. The 15th District seat that’s opened up with Republican Rep. John Shimkus’ retirement after 2020 is still rated “solid Republican.” – Shia Kapos

https://townhall.com/columnists/benshapiro/2019/11/20/how-to-disunite-america-n2556749
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our First Amendment culture is endangered when local governments are given the capacity to block businesses from operating, not on the basis of business discrimination but on the viewpoint of the company’s founders alone. That’s precisely what’s happening here. If giving to Christian charities now bars you from opening a restaurant at the airport, our culture is beyond the point of no return. But there’s something even more troubling going on here. In a free country, of course we get to choose which businesses to patronize. But is it good for the culture for us to segregate our business based on examining the politics of those who own our companies? Do we really want a country where we shop based on political affiliation? Where every decision, every day, is rooted in partisanship? America’s social fabric is already fraying. Politics has invaded everything from education to sports, from movies to fashion. Should politics now determine where we buy a chicken sandwich? A country that punishes restaurants because its founders don’t openly celebrate same-sex marriage is a country destined to bifurcate. And that’s pretty fowl.)

— 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.

In your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world, who takes the lead in dumping Christians?) 
https://illinoisfamily.org/faith/chick-fil-a/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a stunning act of betrayal, Chick-fil-A’s charitable foundation, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, has announced it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), or Paul Anderson Youth Home (PAYH). Though Chick-fil-A has not publicly acknowledged the reason for its betrayal, everyone knows what it is. Chick-fil-A is attempting to curry favor with the “LGBTQ+” community that is shredding our social fabric. This policy shift constitutes a cowardly betrayal of Chick-fil-A’s Christian ethos and its Christian customers who have stood by Chick-fil-A through all its trials at the hands of legions of supporters of sexual deviance. Broods of vipers identifying as apostles of justice, equality, tolerance, diversity, inclusivity, and compassion have been protesting and maligning Chick-fil-A since 2012 when Dan Truett Cathy, chairman and chief executive officer, made some public statements in an interview with the Baptist Press supporting true marriage and opposing the legal recognition of homosexual unions as marriages. After homosexuals got wind of Cathy’s theologically orthodox and unremarkable statements, some part of hell broke loose and raged against Chick-fil-A. Fortunately for Cathy and Chick-fil-A, Christians turned out en masse all across the country to show their support with their time and money for Cathy’s stand for truth. And this is how Cathy and Chick-fil-A repay them.)

https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/politics/joe-biden-marijuana-gateway-drug/index.html
— Trump’s aides eye moving impeachment witnesses out of White House jobs – Kevin Liptak and Pamela Brown (DIERSEN: I should write a book about my Democrat superiors in the federal government, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me. I should write a book about TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter leaders, the adverse actions that they took against me, and why they took those adverse actions against me.)
https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/18/politics/donald-trump-never-trump-white-house-staff/index.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s one of the persistent anomalies of the impeachment inquiry: most of the witnesses airing concerns at Trump’s approach to Ukraine remain employed by him, despite his claims they are “Never Trumpers” and his overt suggestions they’ve already been fired. None, for now, have been explicitly fired by Trump, even as he and his allies suggest otherwise. It’s created an odd and uncomfortable situation for staffers, who say they are unclear on their colleagues’ futures in the administration. Over the weekend, a GOP talking point emerged that Trump was well within his rights to choose his own team, a response to Yovanovitch public recounting of the smear campaign orchestrated by Trump’s allies to push her from her post in Kiev. “America hired @realDonaldTrump to fire people like the first three witnesses we’ve seen,” the President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted as Yovanovitch began her testimony. “Career government bureaucrats and nothing more.” A day later, Trump himself suggested on Twitter he’d already fired the three State Department employees who have appeared in public impeachment hearings, quoting the conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.)

I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on those who blame me and blame my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. I would focus on those who blame all the losses that Republicans have suffered in Illinois since 2000 on me, on my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, and on what I did as a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member.)

— Reflections on the 30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall A happy occasion – but also one with lessons that remain urgent today. – ILYA SOMIN (DIERSEN: I should write a book about actions that Democrat and RINO leaders of the State of Illinois, DuPage County, Milton Township, Wheaton, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Milton Township Republican Central Committee, etc. have taken to coerce conservative individuals, coerce conservative organizations, and coerce conservative companies to leave Illinois, to leave DuPage County, to leave Milton Township, and to leave Wheaton.) 
https://reason.com/2019/11/09/reflections-on-the-30th-anniversary-of-the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Decisions to “vote with your feet” are often better indicators of peoples’ true preferences than ballot box voting, since foot voters have better incentives to become well-informed about the alternatives before them. Even more powerful evidence is the fact that many East Germans and others fled communism even when doing so meant risking their lives. . .For millions of people around the world today, like for East Germans until 1989, international migration is the only realistic way to escape a lifetime of poverty and oppression. Yet governments—including those of liberal democracies—routinely use coercion to stop them from “voting with their feet.”)
