CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten builds up war chest of more than $1.4 million in advance of GOP challenge from Jeanne Ives – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-congressional-fundraising-20191015-xncrdflmlbgbld2fp4qg7jy6o4-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Federal Election Commission campaign reports showed Ives, who announced her candidacy in mid-July, raised $340,298 through September. After spending $117,500, she said she had about $222,796 on hand. Among Ives’ contributors was conservative megadonor Richard Uihlein, who gave her the maximum $5,600 for the primary and general election. Uihlein, the Lake Forest businessman who owns Uline packing materials company, was by far the biggest donor to Ives’ campaign in advance of her near upset of Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP primary, giving her $2.5 million of the $4.2 million she raised. Ives’ campaign also received donations from two conservative organizations, reporting $5,000 from the House Freedom Fund and $2,500 from the Susan B. Anthony candidate fund. . .In dropping out of the contest, Sanguinetti alluded to problems fundraising, which was backed up by her report with the FEC. She raised only $39,318 from July through September and had only $36,539 in cash on hand to start this month. Last week, Gordon “Jay” Kinzler, a transplant surgeon from Glen Ellyn who has unsuccessfully sought other offices previously, announced he also would run in the Republican primary for Casten’s seat.)
— With nearly $1.2 million in the bank, U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood has a healthy fundraising lead over potential Republican challengers – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-lauren-underwood-congressional-fundraising-20191016-7l22xq5e6bcntnsfsdrqkrlbuu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The top fundraiser among Republicans trying to win the right to challenge Underwood in November 2020 was state Sen. Jim Oberweis of Sugar Grove. Oberweis, unsuccessful in previous bids for Congress and the U.S. Senate, raised $329,493 and reported $551,578 in cash on hand. Oberweis, a dairy magnate and financial investor, loaned his campaign $200,000 of the cash he raised from July through September. He now has made a total of $400,000 in loans to his congressional bid.)

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.)

FED SMITH
— FROM THE ARTICLE: The message to agencies is clear. In effect, don’t take the easy way when imposing disciplinary or adverse action. Instead, “efficiently remove those who fail to perform or to uphold the public’s trust.”

CAPITOL FAX
— Sanguinetti bows out of congressional race From Evelyn Sanguinetti via a campaign spokesperson… It is with deep regret that I must announce that I have officially decided to end my campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Congress for the 6th Congressional District of Illinois. I want to thank everyone that supported me through volunteering, financial contributions, and words of encouragement and support. I am sorry if this announcement lets you down. Although I firmly believe that I can and will win the nomination if I stayed in the race, the question in my mind is at what cost. There has been enough destruction in the Republican Party from past election cycles, and I choose not to contribute further to it by engaging in a costly and negative campaign against my opponents. I wish the remaining candidates all the best, and I encourage all Republicans to unite behind the eventual nominee for the good of the Party and more importantly the Nation as we continue the fight to stop socialism and to protect the American Dream for future generations.

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Sanders Calls for ‘National Wealth Registry’ to Enforce New Tax – MAIREAD MCARDLE
https://www.nationalreview.com/news/bernie-calls-for-national-wealth-registry-to-enforce-new-tax/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Sanders’ annual tax on the top 0.1 percent would apply to Americans with a net worth of over $32 million, or about 180,000 households, and would raise approximately $4.35 trillion over the next decade, the Sanders campaign estimates. The Vermont senator’s plan seeks to combat capital flight and other forms of tax avoidance through a “national wealth registry” and the addition of “significant additional third party reporting requirements.” The proposal calls for increased funding for the Internal Revenue Service to cover the bureaucratic costs associated with enforcing the wealth tax. Under the plan, the IRS will be required to audit 30 percent of the top one percent’s wealth tax returns and 100 percent for billionaires. The tax would start at one percent for a married couple with $32.5 million and would progressively increase one percent for each bracket up to eight percent for those with a net worth of $10 billion. Those rates would be halved for single individuals.)

Of course, that meant discriminating against their employees who were male, Republican, White, and/or older. Ever-increasingly, the officers of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican party, Republican Party, etc. are under tremendous pressure to give tremendous preference to females, and especially to those who are minority, and/or younger. Of course, that means discriminating against those who were male, White, and/or older, that is, discriminating against the base of the Republican Party.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/opinion/commentary/ct-opinion-ms-monopoly-women-pay-gap-20190911-2orsw7saefdgflwdtmeanvtjmm-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: I have three girls and three boys. Some of them have recently gotten into Monopoly, the classic board game. But my kids won’t be playing Hasbro’s new version, Ms. Monopoly, which gives women 20% more than men when they pass go. . .But I do not see how a game that gives women a head start supports or encourages either women or men. Instead, it just embeds inequity and incites resentment. If my children played this game, I’m sure my girls would be thrilled — at first — over the advantages it offers. No doubt they’d gloat as they passed go and pocketed 20% more than their brothers. And I’m equally sure these things would upset my boys, leading them to retaliate with verbal jabs at their sisters. If one of the girls won, the boys would give her no credit, claiming it was only because the rules of the game were unfair. And if one of the boys won. Wow. I can hear the disparagements now, about how girls must be really lame if they can’t win even with a huge advantage.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: To escape starvation, Irish peasant emigrated to America. Coming from rural backgrounds, most lacked the necessary skills required by industrializing America. They had to take unskilled jobs, paving the streets and digging the canals, while the women were forced into menial jobs as maids and laundresses. And there was prejudice against the Irish. America was largely Protestant. The Irish were Catholics. Many Americans believed the Irish owed their allegiance to the Pope. Additionally, the Irish immigrants threatened to take jobs from American citizens. Fearing that they would also take political power, there was a backlash, which produced the Know-Nothing Party, whose very reason for being was anti-immigration xenophobia. “Help Wanted” signs were modified to add, “No Irish need apply!” Then came the Civil War. As Irishmen disembarked, they were met by Union military recruiters who offered them $300 to join the Union Army. And they did.)

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-judge-denies-california-ag-request-for-gag-order-to-restrict-pro-life-reporting-on-daleiden-hearing
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Peter Breen, lawyer for Daleiden and vice president and senior counsel with the Thomas More Society, which is defending Daleiden pro bono, had called the motion “outrageous.” “We’re going to fight it very, very hard. It’s an incredible violation of the First Amendment, of the people’s right to know, of the right to a public trial,” Breen told LifeSiteNews in a previous report. “Everything that Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation have been trying to do is to shut down anyone knowing about their scheme to sell fetal parts and organs for profit which involves babies born alive, manipulating abortion techniques without telling women that they’re doing that to them, terrible things that they’re doing for money and not for the best interests of the patients,” he said. “And of course, for us who are pro-life, they’re taking and treating these poor little children like they’re cattle to be chopped up and shipped out,” he said. “It’s disgusting and so we’re fighting very hard on that front to get word about it and we’re doing it in a way that’s legal and appropriate.”)

She’s no stranger to taking on the entrenched interests of the party establishment and has proven again and again to be a grassroots favorite. This should come as no surprise at a time when all too many Republicans are prone to cede ground on the issue of fiscal responsibility. Ives has instead made sticking up for the Illinois taxpayer a cornerstone of her platform.)
