(FROM THE ARTICLE: Kirkwood said he recently purchased Long Sing Restaurant, a Waukegan restaurant that has five video gambling machines. The purchase made Kirkwood a liquor license holder in the city of Waukegan, which means under state law, he must abstain from any votes on liquor-related issues, city attorney Bob Long said. State law previously outright banned all local elected officials from holding liquor licenses. Former aldermanic candidate Jack Dye, who ran unsuccessfully for alderman in the 6th War and had raised the issue in a Facebook post, said he would hope Kirkwood would also abstain from all votes related to gambling. He also pointed to the level of campaign spending tied to gambling interests in the last election.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190819/st-charles-officials-to-debate-recreational-pot-sales-at-monday-meeting
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the city wants to ban sales, the process will be straightforward, he said. But if they choose to allow sales, the proposed ordinances would have to go through the zoning process, which includes giving adequate notice to residents, holding a public hearing before the plan commission and additional approvals at the committee and city council levels. “Effectively, things need to be done by mid-November,” Koenen said. “It takes time to do it right.” Monday’s discussion is expected to take place during the government operations committee meeting, which is held after the 7 p.m. city council meeting at 2 E. Main St.)

Ever-increasingly, they do everything that they can a) to stop me from putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading those emails. At the Milton Township Republican Central Committee Wednesday evening, August 14, 2019, at the Carol Stream Holiday Inn, after two of their nasty threatening operatives falsely charged me with harassing Carol Stream Holiday Inn employees, one of them in front of an extremely credible witness said that he was going to stop everyone from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.)

— Rasmussen: New Poll Shows Voters Trust Political News About As Much As They Trust Wikipedia – Tim Hains (DIERSEN: No one should trust journalsts who deny that they have an agenda. I have an agenda. It is to defend and promote conservative and Republican principles.) 
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/08/18/rasmussen_new_poll_shows_voters_trust_national_political_media_about_the_same_as_they_trust_wikipedia.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sunday on “Full Measure,” host Sharyl Attkisson discussed a new poll showing a plurality of Americans think political media is more biased than it was five years ago. She talks with pollster Scott Rasmussen, who said: “We asked about national political reporters, are they credible, are they reliable? And you know, a little more than one out of three people say yes. When we ask about Wikipedia, we get the exact same answer. So what’s happening is we have a world where people look at journalists like they look at Wikipedia. Gee, that’s an interesting fact. I better check it myself.” “The media has a huge credibility problem and it’s always had the problem,” he explained. “Oh, we talk about it differently today. Now we talk about it as a political bias. I think the issues have always been there. I mean, people were complaining about the bias of Walter Cronkite back in the 1960s.” He continued: “78% of voters say that what reporters do with political news is promote their agenda. They think they use incidents as props for their agenda rather than seeking accurately record what happened. Only 14% think that a journalist is actually reporting what happened… If a reporter found out something that would hurt their favorite candidate, only 36% of voters think that they would report that. “So voters are looking at them as a political activist, not as a source of information,” he concluded.)

I am considering publishing cease and desist letters against those MTRCC members. Maybe I should just sue them.)

Try going to one of his rallies and, instead of turning up your nose at the Walmart people, listen and learn. The abuse of President Trump and his supporters that passes for analysis from his opponents is a strategic error. The more abuse, the more Trump’s base is energized to turn out on Election Day.)

— 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. – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com
— 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. 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. – Dave Diersen

ILLINOIS REPUBLICAN PARTY
— ILGOP Chairman Calls on Sen. Tom Cullerton to Resign Immediately The Democrat State Senator was indicted today on 41 counts of embezzlement, conspiracy, and making false statements It was reported today by the Chicago Tribune that Democrat State Senator Tom Cullerton has been indicted by federal prosecutors. Illinois Republican Party Chairman, Tim Schneider, responded with the following statement: “The criminal activity of Sen. Tom Cullerton brought to light by federal investigators is appalling. For too long, Illinoisans have been hurt by self-serving and self-dealing politicians. Sen. Cullerton is just another example of the insider class that makes money off their government positions and sticks taxpayers with the bill. Cullerton has betrayed the trust of the voters of his district and citizens of this state. He should do the right thing and resign immediately.”

— Ives seeks ‘more freedom’ for 6th District in campaign to unseat Casten – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190722/ives-seeks-more-freedom-for-6th-district-in-campaign-to-unseat-casten
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Marty Keller, chairman of the DuPage County Republicans, said he hopes finding the best person to defeat Casten, a clean energy entrepreneur who unseated longtime Republican Rep. Peter Roskam last year, will be the true focus of the 2020 primary. But he doesn’t look forward to the anticipated conflicts between Sanguinetti and Ives. “They’re going to bump heads and spend money,” Keller said about the intraparty foes. “I don’t think you’ll find a primary that made the party stronger afterward.” Ives, 54, said she won’t overlook the primary and knows Sanguinetti has her supporters. But she said she isn’t worried about conflict within the Republican Party. “What Republican Party?” she said. “The Republican Party is pretty divided already.” Her primary run against Rauner is one illustration, and not an example she shies away from. Ives said that challenge shows she’s able to call out — or work with — people of any party when policy or the public good calls for it. “Nobody’s been more independent from both parties than Jeanne Ives,” she said. But in her campaign launch speech Sunday, Ives aligned herself with Roskam, touting the endorsement she has received from the former congressman and his wife, Elizabeth.)
