CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— With former Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner out of state’s political scene, Illinois GOP turns to grassroots fundraising – RICK PEARSON (DIERSEN: What motivates you to donate money to Republican political organizations? For me, it is their demonstrating that they can and will help elect candidates who can and will defend and advance the Illinois Republican Party platform and the Republican Party platform.) 
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-without-rauner-illinois-republicans-turn-to-grassroots-fundraising-20191014-uis6mwbrcvc3veh662sfqfofci-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In its last filing with the State Board of Elections, the state GOP reported having $88,412 in cash on hand as of June 30. Rauner’s last donation to the state party, totaling $100,000, came two days after Democrat J.B. Pritzker defeated him for governor, 55% to 39%. Pritzker’s victory has turned the tables on Republicans. The Democrat is the country’s wealthiest politician, worth $3.4 billion and ranking 250th on the Forbes 400 list of wealthy Americans. President Donald Trump comes in at 275th on the list with a net worth of $3.1 billion. Pritzker gave his campaign $172 million and his campaign fund has given the state Democratic Party nearly $3.2 million, state campaign finance records show.)

Neither of my parents had attended college. My father was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma. My mother never attended high school.

My Democrat IRS superiors punished me. They 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. My Democrat Post Office superiors punished me. They forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

Conservative O’Malley refused to endorse the more moderate Ryan in the general election campaign, and Ryan was beaten by Democrat Rod Blagojevich, who is doing time in a federal penitentiary on a corruption conviction. “If O’Malley hadn’t attacked Ryan so viciously in the primary, Ryan could have made up the five points by which he lost and Illinois would have looked much different today,” Syverson said.”

ALTON DAILY NEWS
— Challenges Anticipated with Legal Weed – Doug Jenkins (DIERSEN: QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES: Have you ever used recreational weed? If so, exactly when and exactly how much? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? Are you going to use recreational weed when it is legal? If so, exactly how often and exactly how much? What do you say to people who impair themselves? Have you ever driven a vehicle while you were dunk or incapacitated? If so, exactly when? If so, why did you disrespect the rule of law? What do you say to people who impair themselves?) 
http://altondailynews.com/news/details.cfm?clientid=17&id=292314#.XaRSrL5_OM8
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While there are established, accepted and legally binding blood alcohol levels when determining when someone is drunk or incapacitated, no such tests exist to see if you are high on marijuana. With recreational weed becoming legal in Illinois next year, that has employers trying to figure out policy on how to address its use. A spokesman from OSF Healthcare outlines some of the challenges. Troy Overholt, Vice President for Occupational Health at OSF HealthCare admits to employers that while it may be risky and has yet to be challenged in court, monitoring for marijuana impairment in an employee may need to be less scientific and more observational. There is no scientifically reliable way to measure for marijuana intoxication. THC is stored in fat cells, so the length of time it’s in your system is not a blood test level. So, he says you could test high today from use weeks or months ago, and it depends greatly on frequency and the amount of use.)

Of course, the Democrats will bankrupt you if any of your ancestors owned slaves, fought for the Confederacy, lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line, etc.)

My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes stress that there is a 22+ year gap in my resume. They stress that my GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980.)

— Women still get fired for being pregnant, as Elizabeth Warren says she was in 1971 Walmart, UPS and other major employers have faced charges of mistreating pregnant workers – Leslie Albrecht (DIERSEN: In 1971, when I was 22 years old, Firestone Stores fired me because I accepted a job offer from Oldsmobile. But Oldsmobile withdrew that job offer saying that it had just agreed to stop hiring Whites to settle an EEOC complaint. Of course, to force an employee to retire is to fire that employee. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me retire, that is, they fired me. They fired me a) because I was an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) because I had complained about political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, c) because I refused to help them get rid of their employees who were Republican White, male, and/or non-veteran because they had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40, and d) because many of my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates despised many of my demographics including my being Republican, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: You might have been asked recently to sign a petition to put a candidate on the ballot in 2020. It’s that season and, though a truism, if good people don’t run for office, democracy doesn’t work. You ought to try running. Here’s how. . .There are four resources in every campaign: people, skill, money and time. Every candidate has at least some of one or more of those resources. . .Today, the guidance would be to build your friends on Facebook. Your friends become volunteers, funders and word-spreaders — your “organization.” Don’t expect any help from your local political party organization, which is likely on life support. You and your friends also have skills, maybe at running a small business, which is basically what a campaign is about — setting up a small business that lasts about one year. You write a campaign plan, much like a business plan. In the plan, you establish a vote-total goal and where those votes are located; how to reach them; how much it will cost, and how to raise the requisite amount. Depending upon the office you seek, your plan might simply be in your head, or in a thick three-ring binder. But there has to be a plan. Political consultant Steve Shearer of Peoria observes that 90 percent of the candidates who spend more money than their opponents win. So, money is important, though obviously not controlling in all cases. . .The Illinois State Board of Elections website offers a complete Candidate’s Guide, which walks you through the filing requirements. The key to success, from Lincoln’s day to the present, is effective strategy (the plan), not tactics (specific tasks). . .Steve says winning is about strategy, message and image. Strategy is based on such factors as analysis of recent voting returns, the issues that move voters in your constituency, both candidates’ (including the opponent) strengths and weaknesses. From that comes the plan to achieve your vote-total goal.)

— When God Is Your Portfolio Manager Biblically responsible investing is booming, as some Christians move to match their faith with their stock buys – Jason Zweig
https://www.wsj.com/articles/when-god-guides-your-investment-portfolio-11570811305
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What would Jesus buy? That question is spreading in the investing world, as evangelicals and other Christians seek investment management and financial planning to match their interpretation of biblical principles. The latest sign of the rise of faith-based investing was the launch of the Inspire International ESG exchange-traded fund on Sept. 30. Its ticker symbol? WWJD, short for the popular expression “What would Jesus do?” Many socially responsible investors favor companies that recruit LGBT workers or donate to Planned Parenthood and the like. By contrast, biblically responsible investors shun companies that profit from or support abortion, pornography, gambling, or LGBT issues. No matter what you believe or how you invest, the advent of this approach highlights the promise and perils of socially responsible investing in general: You can salve your conscience, or you can earn higher returns. It isn’t likely you can do both. Biblically responsible investing, or BRI, is booming as investment managers who are losing assets to index funds strive to find new niches.)

— 9 Things About Public Relations They Didn’t Teach You in College – Arthur Solomon (DIERSEN: Of course, I should sue my critics/opponents who hint/imply/argue/shout that I do not honor embargo requests, off-the-record requests, etc.)
https://www.prnewsonline.com/journalists-media-relations
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Embargo Just because a PR firm distributes a press release with the words “Embargoed Until” atop it doesn’t mean that a reporter will honor it. Most will, but it’s always good to have someone speak to the journalist and request she agree to honor the embargo. Scientific studies sent to specific editors are an exception. The same is true for releases saying “For Release After.” PR pros should know that once a release is distributed, when it is used is up to editors. Off-the Record You can tell a media member that something is “off-the-record,” but it doesn’t mean a reporter considers it so. Establish off-the-record ground rules upfront. Specifically, do so prior to conveying information you want kept off-the-record. ‘If you don’t want it reported, don’t say it’ is the advice I always give to executives before interviews or when they socialize with the media. Recall Madeleine Westerhout, President Trump’s personal assistant, who “quit” or was fired after making comments during a dinner. The event supposedly was off-the-record.)

If you were me, how would you react when the aforesaid candidates regularly open my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and click on links in those emails? 
https://politicalresources.com/for-candidates/campaign-how-to-library/60-campaign-how-to/voter-contact-media-relations/135-how-to-write-campaign-press-releases

(FROM THE ARTICLE: 4. Identify the decision makers at the media that are key for your campaign and develop a relationship with them. Get to know what issues they think are important in the election and feed them information on those issues. . .6. As much as possible, treat all media equally. Don’t discount a reporter because she or he works for a weekly.)

— What is the Purpose of the GOP? – Richard Moss
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/10/what_is_the_purpose_of_the_gop.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Our “one party” system in Washington remains profoundly corrupt and self-serving. It consists of career politicians from both parties, special interests, donors, and lobbyists, all of whom agree on one thing: growing the size of government. The Republican Party, in its budgeting and voting, is a left-of-center party; it is, as I often referred to it as, the Republican wing of the Democratic Party. With an increasingly Marxist Democratic Party, and no serious conservative opposition from “soft-progressive” Republicans, the trajectory of the nation is all to the left: more spending, more programs, more socialism, and ultimately more tyranny.)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/02/magazine/ice-surveillance-deportation.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The goal of the Extreme Vetting Initiative was “determinations via automation,” ICE explained to the attendees. It sought partners whose algorithms could scan social media and other publicly available information and assess whether an immigrant was likely to become a “positively contributing member of society” — or whether he or she intended “to commit criminal or terrorist attacks.”)

Taylor Jr. (DIERSEN: In October of 1993, when I was 45 years old, I had 25 years of Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) credits, and therefore, I was eligible to take GAO’s $25,000 buyout offer and to take early retirement. Of course, my Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were furious about that. I had worked for GAO less than 14 years. I had earned almost 3 years of full-time CSRS credits while I had worked only part-time for the Post Office 1966-1969. I had earned almost 9 years of CSRS credits while I worked for IRS 1971-1980.)

ABC7
— West suburban school bus driver warns of CBD use after failing drug test, losing job – Chuck Goudie and Christine M Tressel (DIERSEN: How stoned, that is, how high a THC level, will employers allow their employees to be? How stoned, that is, how high a THC level, will voters allow their elected officials to be?) 
https://abc7chicago.com/health/suburban-bus-driver-warns-of-cbd-use-after-failing-drug-test-losing-job/5568430/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But she had taken hemp oil capsules for back pain relief. She suspects that those capsules left trace amounts of THC in her system. Barton was stunned by the test results and still has trouble believing the over-the-counter product could have caused the positive reading. Many pharmacology experts aren’t surprised some people are failing drug screenings after using certain CBD products because THC can build up in your system. The compound is found in both cannabis plants: hemp and marijuana. CBD taken from hemp should have 0.3% or less of THC, the psychoactive chemical that causes a mind-altering effect. THC is among the drugs screened for by some companies. It’s not permitted for certain employees, including those who drive big rigs and school buses.)

I want the process to include providing lots of information about the candidates, asking the candidates lots of hard questions, and holding candidate forums.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/discuss/20190926/why-people-prefer-democracy
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In fact, at a time of concern and, in many quarters, cynicism about democracy and its prospects, they remind us of a basic truth: people want a say in how they’re governed. As Winston Churchill put it back in 1944, “At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper — no amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of that point.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Enough is enough,” Mr. Sanders, a senator from Vermont, said Tuesday. “We are going to take on the billionaire class, substantially reduce wealth inequality in America and stop our democracy from turning into a corrupt oligarchy.” The tax would apply to married couples with net worth of at least $32 million and individuals with net worth of at least $16 million. The rate would start at 1% per year and rise to 8% for married couples with assets of least $10 billion. That 8% rate would mean that megabillionaires who don’t earn at least an 8% return would see their fortunes shrink, and Mr. Sanders said Tuesday that there should be no billionaires.)

The first time he ran for the seat at age 22, he was shunned by the eight-member panel, Hyppolite said. “Not a single person from the committee reached out to me and asked why I was running,” he said. “I have a valid message.

Madigan filed a “notification of self-funding” on Aug. 23, indicating that the $100,001 donation he had made to himself removed the state limitations on campaign contributions in what is so far an uncontested race.)

They would stress that while I earned a bachelor’s degree in management and master’s degrees in management, accounting, and finance, my grades were not that high. They would stress that I became the following not by passing examinations, but by grandfathering in: Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Government Financial Manager, Certified Financial Services Auditor, and Forensic Accountant. One of my critics/opponents has publicly stressed that he got better scores than I did on the CPA examination.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Google, Facebook Cozy Up to News Publishers as Regulators Circle Facing mounting antitrust probes, tech platforms offer fees, news-ranking changes media outlets have pursued for years – Lukas I. Alpert (DIERSEN: What do you say to those websites that unethically make “quick rehashes of existing articles” look like “original reporting?” I have never done that, and I never will. GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails highlight the sources of articles, the titles of articles, the authors of articles, and their unhidden hyperlinks.) 
https://www.wsj.com/articles/google-facebook-cozy-up-to-publishers-as-regulators-circle-11568799001
(FROM THE ARTICLE: ‘We understand the critical importance of rewarding publishers that put their resources into original reporting,’ said Facebook executive Campbell Brown. . .Google last week announced changes to how it ranks stories on its news page to better promote original content, addressing publishers’ long-running complaints that their scoops were often overshadowed by quick rewrites by other outlets. . .Google executives said the prospect of regulation didn’t influence their effort to better promote original news, adding that technological advances had finally allowed the company to address a longstanding concern among publishers. “The challenge of identifying and precisely ranking original reporting has taken years to address and has proven extremely difficult,” said Richard Gingras, Google’s vice president for news. “What has changed is that we now have a lot more technical capabilities than we had 10 years ago.” Facebook has expressed a commitment to improving its partnerships with news outlets, particularly those that publish legitimate, high-quality reporting. “We understand the critical importance of rewarding publishers that put their resources into original reporting, which is why it’s been one of our guiding principles for the news tab since we decided to develop the product earlier this year,” said Campbell Brown, Facebook’s vice president for global news partnerships. “It’s important to get this right.” The outlets Facebook pitched on its news tab include the Journal’s publisher, Dow Jones, people familiar with the matter said. While many in the news industry welcomed Google’s algorithm tweak to help original reporting rank higher on Google News, several said they would reserve judgment until they could ascertain whether the change was making an impact. “With all of these things, you don’t know what it means until you see it in practice,” said David Chavern, president and chief executive of the News Media Alliance, a trade coalition representing some 2,000 news organizations in the U.S. and Canada, including Dow Jones. Mr. Gingras wrote in a blog post last week that Google had made changes to keep stories containing significant original reporting higher in search rankings for longer. . .News Corp, the Journal’s parent company, has been developing a news-aggregation service called Knewz.com that is designed, in part, to promote original reporting over quick rehashes of existing articles. . .“Those of us who do a lot of original reporting are thrilled Google is fixing this frustrating bug, but we’re still waiting for Google and some other platforms to follow Facebook’s lead in recognizing the real value they extract from our original journalism,” said Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor in chief.)

https://dccc.org/house-freedom-fund-endorses-jeanne-ives-adding-fuel-fire-full-blown-gop-civil-war-il-06s-primary/
(DIERSEN HEADLINE: With Tea Party Endorsement, A Race to the Right has Officially Begun Earlier this week, the ultra-conservative House Freedom Fund announced its endorsement of Jeanne Ives, throwing fuel onto an already divisive primary that’s brewing in Illinois’ 6th district. This comes on the heels of Washington Insiders and Republican establishment naming Evelyn Sanguetti to House Republicans’ watch list of their top campaigns. As Washington insiders and Chicago fat cats pick their ponies, Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti will have to work hard to out-conservative each other to see who can ultimately lock-down the pinnacle: President Trump’s endorsement. “Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti have already made it clear to voters in this district that they’re more interested in getting the support of President Trump and out of touch Washington insiders than they are of people in the 6th Congressional District,” said DCCC Spokesperson, Andy Orellana.)

GOOGLE

https://blog.google/products/search/original-reporting/
(FROM THE POSTING: With news in particular, we always aim to show a diversity of articles and sources to give users as much context and insight as possible. An important element of the coverage we want to provide is original reporting, an endeavor which requires significant time, effort and resources by the publisher. Some stories can also be both critically important in the impact they can have on our world and difficult to put together, requiring reporters to engage in deep investigative pursuits to dig up facts and sources. These are among the reasons why we aim to support these industry efforts and help people get access to the most authoritative reporting. Recently, we’ve made ranking updates and published changes to our search rater guidelines to help us better recognize original reporting, surface it more prominently in Search and ensure it stays there longer. This means readers interested in the latest news can find the story that started it all, and publishers can benefit from having their original reporting more widely seen.)

https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/9/16/20869148/danny-solis-viagra-massage-parlor-ethics-board-fine-lobbying-alderman
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Sun-Times reported in January that the federal affidavit accuses Caldero of plying Solis with Viagra and arranging for the then-chairman of the City Council’s Zoning Committee to visit massage parlors, where he was allegedly serviced by a prostitute. Caldero was further accused of soliciting campaign donations from the Cacciatore family, which, among other businesses, owns Elgin Sweeping Services, a major street-sweeping company. At the time, Caldero was representing Elgin Sweeping in its efforts to obtain relief from a change in the city’s water billing practices that investigators indicated could have cost the company more than $1 million. Elgin Sweeping had a city contract to provide street sweeping services and at the time relied on filling its equipment at city fire hydrants. During several wiretapped conversations, Solis and Caldero made plans to exchange Viagra or visit massage parlors while also discussing how the alderman might help Elgin Sweeping reduce its water bill. In late 2014, Solis allegedly placed a series of calls and texts to Caldero asking if he had any of that “blue medicine,” meaning Viagra, according to the feds.)

NORTHWEST HERALD
— 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.) 
https://www.nwherald.com/2019/09/13/mchenry-county-reviewing-marijuana-tax-franks-opposes-setting-tax-at-cap/atu38nj/
(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.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of us Hispanics will vote again for President Trump. We want legal immigration, immigrants who integrate and assimilate into American society, we don’t want the Balkanization of every city across America. Illegals don’t integrate, they create little enclaves that are drug and crime infested HellHoles as we have here in Chicago. Thats why we Americans of Hispanic descent support President Trump. Build that Wall And Build it Tall! Tired of all these illegals coming here and continuing their criminality on a daily basis. Never vote Democrat unless you want communities festering with ongoing crime sprees like we have in here in Chicago and ignored by the Kleptocratic Democrat party.)

— AUGUST 24, 2003 FLASHBACK: The New Couples Next Door, Gay and Straight – Kate Zernike (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, you are demonized, denigrated, and condemned if you do not promote LGBTQ activity. According to City-Data at http://www.city-data.com/city/Wheaton-Illinois.html, for Wheaton: “Likely homosexual households (counted as self-reported same-sex unmarried-partner households) Lesbian couples: 0.2% of all households Gay men: 0.2% of all households” Those who promote LGBTQ activity in Wheaton stress “OneWheaton.” SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OneWheaton)
https://www.nytimes.com/2003/08/24/us/the-new-couples-next-door-gay-and-straight.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mark Demich and Kevin Hengst, the couple across the street, are not actually married. Still, in the seven years they have lived in this Chicago suburb they have become like the Buckinghams, the Therrons, the Siconolfis — just another young family in the neighborhood, socializing porch to porch on summer evenings. Choosing the suburbs over the city, Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst feared they would be The Gay Couple. But even in Wheaton — the home of an evangelical Christian college that until last year prohibited drinking and dancing, the seat of a reliably Republican county — they have found plenty of company. Sixty gay men and lesbians turned out for a wine-tasting a few weeks ago. About 30 played softball at a local park on a recent Saturday. . .In Wheaton, Mr. Demich, 42, said he liked the diversity. ”Of families,” he explained, after a brief pause. ”As opposed to city culture, where everything is around gay life, gay events. That’s not really the way America lives.” When he and Mr. Hengst decided to move to the suburbs, they told their real estate agent, ”Anything but Wheaton,” knowing its conservative reputation. Then they found the perfect house. They hung out a Gay Pride flag, and the neighbors invited them to a block party. The couple said they would bring fruit salad. ”Everyone broke out laughing,” Mr. Weinberg, a contractor, recalled. ”They were making fun of it, which went over well.” Neighborhood children have confronted the couple with questions: Do you two sleep together? Do you have wives? Their parents cringe, but also say they consider themselves, and their children, fortunate. ”Growing up in a good Catholic family, I didn’t even know about anything like this,” Ms. Weinberg said. ”It wasn’t thrown in front of me. These kids, if they don’t see it now, they’re going to see it soon. Living on a block like this is more the real world.” A few blocks over the train tracks, Ladd McClurg and Brad Ogilvie had similar concerns about moving to Wheaton when Mr. Ogilvie accepted a job in town. Mr. McClurg, who grew up in the Mormon faith, being taught that gays were sinners, said he arrived with ”almost a visceral disdain” for Wheaton’s many churches and their members. ”I learned to discover they’re not all bigoted,” Mr. McClurg said. ”There are a lot more variations on the middle out here than I was willing to give credit for.” Still, gays here say they step carefully to avoid causing offense. Betty Burns and Lisa Rechkemmer say they would never hold hands or hang out a pride flag for fear of upsetting their good relations with the neighbors. Mr. Ogilvie and Mr. McClurg display the flag, but resist the urge to hold hands unless they visit the city. One lesbian in Wheaton talked about how accepting her neighbors were, but did not want to be identified by name because she feared the kind of hate calls she and her partner received when they moved in two years ago. Mr. Demich and Mr. Hengst had to go to six or seven churches before they found one that did not preach that homosexuality is a sin. The church they chose, St. Paul Lutheran, had declared itself ”open and affirming” to gays five years ago, but only after a struggle. The decision was prompted not by gay parishioners — there were none at the time — but by a young man who had been baptized and confirmed in the church who died of AIDS. ”It lifted the issue,” said Marianne Avery, a member of the church council that debated the change. ”It was, ‘This is our children, this is not about letting someone in.’ ” Still, a handful of members left. ”What if they show up in drag?” the Rev. Melody Eastman, the pastor, recalled one woman asking.)
