(FROM THE ARTICLE: The match-up will be the biggest GOP primary for Congress in Illinois. With no fanfare, Ives filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday. . .In a big of a pre-emptive strike against Ives, Sanguinetti released on Monday the names of 40 Republicans who back her, including Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.; former Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill.; former Rep. Judy Biggert, R-Ill., former Lt. Gov. Corinne Wood; DuPage County Board Chair Dan Cronin and a group of GOP township committeemen — all influential in a Republican primary. As of June 30, Casten has $899,888 cash-on-hand. Sanguinetti, who jumped in the race in April, has $69,890 cash-on-hand. Rauner donated $2,800 as did his wife, Diana, who gave $2,800. Sanguinetti also loaned her campaign $5,000.)

https://capitolfax.com/2019/07/18/reefer-madness-is-alive-and-well/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the early 1900s an influx of Mexican immigrants came to the US fleeing political unrest in their home country. With them, they brought the practice of smoking cannabis recreationally. And it took off. The Spanish word for the plant started to be used more often too. Marijuana. Or as it was spelled at that time, marihuana, with an “H. This is when the more sensational headlines about the drug began to appear. In 1936, a propaganda film called Reefer Madness was released. In the movie, teenagers smoke weed for the first time and this leads to a series of horrific events involving hallucination, attempted rape, and murder. Much of the media portrayed it as a gateway drug. […] Harry Anslinger took the scientifically unsupported idea of marijuana as a violence-inducing drug, connected it to black and Hispanic people, and created a perfect package of terror to sell to the American media and public. By emphasizing the Spanish word marihuana instead of cannabis, he created a strong association between the drug and the newly arrived Mexican immigrants who helped popularize it in the States. He also created a narrative around the idea that cannabis made black people forget their place in society. He pushed the idea that jazz was evil music created by people under the influence of marijuana. […] In the first full year after the Marihuana Tax Act was passed, black people were about three times more likely to be arrested for violating narcotic drug laws than whites. And Mexicans were nearly nine times more likely to be arrested for the same charge.)

NATIONAL REVIEW
— Stop Chanting ‘Send Her Back.’ Citizenship Isn’t Conditional. – JIM GERAGHTY (DIERSEN: According to David Ware (https://www.david-ware.com/blog/2018/01/when-can-the-government-revoke-your-naturalized-citizenship.shtml), naturalized citizenship can be revoked if “within 5 years of naturalization, the U.S. government proved you joined a subversive group. Such groups include Al Qaeda and the Nazi Party, for example” and “within 10 years of naturalization, you refused to testify before a U.S. congressional committee investigating your involvement in an allegedly subversive act. Subversive acts include trying to harm U.S. officials or overthrow the government.” and “you lied or concealed relevant facts in order to obtain U.S. citizenship, your citizenship could be revoked. This is called illegally procuring citizenship.”)

If we are to administer these reparations, the historical origins of guilt need to be irrefutable.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Weed cafes in Illinois? People could be allowed to smoke marijuana at bars, restaurants, other businesses under new law. Legalization includes an exemption to the Smoke-Free Illinois Act ban on indoor smoking, letting cities decide whether to allow on-site use at bars, restaurants, theaters, even new cannabis smoke lounges. – Tom Schuba (DIERSEN: Municipalities and counties that do not ban the sale of pot shout that they are NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. Your mayor and your city council members and your county board chairman and your county board members should ASAP call for a vote on the sale of pot and ASAP announce that they will vote against the sale of pot. I urge Wheaton Mayor Phil Suess and Wheaton City Council members Michael Barbier, Erica Bray-Parker, Suzanne Fitch, John K. Rutledge, and Todd Scalzo and the new North District Council member (soon to be Christopher J. Zaruba) to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in Wheaton ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in Wheaton. I urge DuPage County Chairman Dan Cronin and DuPage County Board members Donald Puchalski, Ashley Selmon, Sam Tornatore, Elizabeth Chaplin, Peter “Pete” DiCianni, Sean Noonan, Greg Hart, Brian Krajewski, Julie Renehan, Grant Eckhoff, Tim Elliott, Mary FitzGerald Ozog, Sadia Covert, Dawn DeSart, James Healy, Robert Larsen, Sheila Rutledge, and James Zay to a) call for a vote on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County ASAP and b) vote NO on the sale of pot in unincorporated DuPage County.)

DAILY HERALD
— Legalized marijuana and the workplace – Marcy Traxler (DIERSEN: The more pot that you use, the more impaired that you are. The more booze that you drink, the more impaired that you are. Pot impairs you far longer than booze. Employers should not tolerate any kind of impairment.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20190620/legalized-marijuana-and-the-workplace
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Used versus impaired So how will this impact a business and how it approaches policy? Illinois statute prohibits discrimination against employees for testing positive for marijuana. The upshot is employers cannot rescind a job offer or terminate an employee for a positive drug test. How will this impact employers that want to hire or fire at will? For employers, a key issue involving marijuana is not legalization, but workplace safety. The takeaway is that it is more important than ever to make the distinction between an employee having used marijuana versus the employee being impaired on the job. Having come from an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) background, I think the most progressive companies have addressed this very issue and developed Drug Free Work Place and Safety Program policies to include training for supervisors to observe and document employees that have unsafe practices or exhibit behaviors and signs of drug use.)

FED SMITH
— Bill Resurfaces to Expedite Process of Firing Federal Employees – Ian Smith (DIERSEN: Constructively, to force a federal employee to take early retirement or to resign is to fire that employee. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49. My Democrat GAO and IRS superiors forced me to take a $19,568 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me to resign in 1969 when I was 20. Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes use the aforesaid to hint/imply/argue/shout that given all the work experience, education, professional certifications, and the professional license that I have, I must have been far worse than an “underperforming federal employee,” I must have been a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things. Needless-to-say, I should sue my critics/opponents, sue their operatives, and sue their dupes.) 
https://www.fedsmith.com/2019/06/20/bill-resurfaces-expedite-process-firing-federal-employees/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “Government employees should be held to the same standards as private sector employees, yet it is nearly impossible to fire bureaucrats for failing to do their jobs,” said Senator Perdue. “Right now, it can take more than a year to fire or replace a civil service employee, even for poor performance or misconduct. With a $22 trillion debt crisis, we cannot afford to hold onto bureaucrats who aren’t doing their jobs. Since President Trump took office, more than 4,300 bad actors have been fired, demoted, or suspended at the VA. It’s time to expand those efforts and address problems across the entire federal government.” Congressman Loudermilk added, “Working for the United States federal government is an honor and privilege, and most federal employees cherish this opportunity and desire to serve the American people. Unfortunately, many underperforming federal employees feel entitled to their positions and treat them as their right. The solution to this issue is the MERIT Act. I thank my friend and colleague, Senator Perdue, for leading the charge on this important reform.” It was last introduced in 2018 in both the House and Senate but ultimately failed to advance.)

SPUTNIK NEWS

At the start of 1989, a) to retaliate against me for my becoming an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged them with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation, b) to punish me for my avoiding the draft, and c) to punish my wife and I for giving up trying to have children, not adopting, and not becoming foster parents, my Democrat GAO superiors abruptly and rudely threw me off audits of IRS and assigned me to an audit of the Department of Defense 1990 ammunition budget request in Rock Island. SEE: https://www.gao.gov/assets/150/148194.pdf Instead of me, my GAO superiors should have assigned one of my many coworkers who had military experience and wanted the assignment. They painted me as having an unfair advantage to work on audits of IRS because I had worked for IRS for almost 9 years. Overwhelmingly, my GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates had very little or no prior work experience when GAO hired them.)
