HR
— How to Calculate Damages in a Slander Case (DIERSEN: I should sue those who have slandered me. Their slandering me has caused me to lose a tremendous amount of income.) 
https://www.hg.org/legal-articles/how-to-calculate-damages-in-a-slander-case-38152

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Actual damages can be calculated to a certain dollar amount. They include all those damages that the plaintiff directly suffered due to the slander. This may include lost wages, lost earning capacity or loss of business opportunities. These may include the actual amounts lost or the amounts that are likely to be lost because of the slander. To calculate lost earnings, the plaintiff can add up the wages that he or she lost from being out of work because of the slanderous statement. This also includes any employment benefits that were lost, such as using sick days or paid time off to deal with the slanderous statement. Lost earning capacity is more difficult to prove and generally requires expert testimony. An expert may have to testify about how the plaintiff’s diminished earning capacity will affect his or her lifetime earnings. For example, if a person was working a $100,000 job and the slander caused him or her to be fired and to be ostracized from the position and was only able to earn $50,000, the annual amount of damages would start at $50,000. Reasonable pay increases based on the individual’s employment record would also be taken into consideration, as well as his or her prospects for promotion. Inflation may also be taken into consideration. An expert may have to evaluate a variety of evidence in order to determine the difference between the plaintiff’s projected earnings before the slander in order to compare these with the projected earnings after the slander. The economic expert may examine the plaintiff’s tax returns, the current and projected economic state and the industry in which the plaintiff is employed and was employed. If the plaintiff was a business owner, his or her losses may include the loss of existing clients and the lost business opportunities. Former clients may be called to testify that they stopped doing business because of the slander. An economic expert may be necessary to testify about the economic impact of such lost business opportunities and business goodwill.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Waubonsee students who are part of the national group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlan — MEChA — said they were disappointed to not have notice of the visit because they said it silenced them. The group works to spread awareness of immigrant rights, help connect students who are underrepresented minorities and help first-generation students navigate higher education, group leaders said. While touring Jefferson High School in Rockford Monday, dozens of protestors, many wearing red T-shirts, carried signs and gathered outside the school to greet DeVos, according to the Rockford Register Star. “Waubonsee tends to show this image that we have a very diverse student population, but we had someone from the Trump administration who has attacked our communities here,” said Giselle Gonzalez, Waubonsee sophomore and president of the MEChA group at the school. . .“At a place like our college where there is a large population of Latinx students, that’s something the school should have thought twice about before letting her come on campus,” Rodriguez said. “It just doesn’t feel safe to be surprised like that.”)

— Chick-fil-A’s Sales Have Doubled Since LGBT Boycott Began in 2012 – Michael Foust (DIERSEN: Do those who represent you in your municipality support Chick-fil-A or oppose Chick-fil-A?) 
https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/chick-fil-a-s-sales-have-doubled-since-lgbt-boycott-began-in-2012.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We are very much supportive of the family – the biblical definition of the family unit,” he told the Biblical Recorder. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” Cathy’s comments led to calls for boycotts and pledges by mayors in Boston and Chicago to oppose new restaurants opening in their cities. That, in turn, led Mike Huckabee to launch a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day on Aug. 1, 2012. Hundreds of thousands of customers took part, and the chain broke sales records for a single day.)

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/7-reasons-why-drinkers-could-162631101.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Whether weed-infused drinks are going to catch on the way vape pens, edibles, and traditional flower have is still up for debate, but your favorite beer companies are still most likely looking over their shoulders. And that’s because they have a legitimate concern that the cannabis industry may lure consumers away from alcohol. At “Cannabis In The Booze Industry,” a conference during Bar Convent Brooklyn, a trade show for the beverage industry in June 2019, leaders from both the cannabis and alcohol industries gathered to talk about how one affects the other. All signs are clear that the rapidly growing cannabis sector is a significant threat to the alcoholic beverage industry, particularly for beer drinking consumers. Larger alcoholic beverage distributors, including Constellation Brands, Molson Coors, and Heineken, have already invested heavily in cannabis in an effort to ride the wave rather than be washed away in a potential tsunami of non-alcoholic canna-drinks. Or, as studies like research from the University of Georgia and Syracuse University in New York are finding, legalization of marijuana could mean interest in — and consumption of — alcohol experiences a corresponding decline. . . .3). Bars Are Ready to Get Onboard With the inclusion of cannabis-infused drinks, bars stand to attract consumers who would want to socialize or recreationally indulge while avoiding alcohol. These beverages could offer options to widen bars’ customer base to include people who don’t want to drink alcohol. Since there’s a chill-factor to the beverages, whether they’re THC- or cannabidiol (CBD)-infused, makes them stand out from current non-alcoholic options.)

REPORTERS COMMITTEE FOR FREEDOM OF THE PRESS
— Reporters Committee: White House must restore Brian Karem’s credentials (DIERSEN: At its August 20, 2019 meeting, DuPage County revoked my GOPUSA press credentials. Because of me, because of what I do for you as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, and without any input from DuPage County voters, “DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board Staff” issued “DuPage County Media Guidelines” to justify revoking my GOPUSA press credentials. SEE: https://www.dupageco.org/CountyBoard/Docs/61283/  Should I sue DuPage County like Brian Karem has sued the White House? Would the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of me? Would the Daily Herald, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, etc. file friend-of-the-court briefs in support of DuPage County? Which Republican DuPage County officials support me – Berlin, Bucholz, Cronin, DiCianni, Eckhoff, Elloitt, Grogan, Hart, Healy, Henry, Jorgensen, Kachiroubas, Krajewski, Larsen, Mendrick, Puchalski, Ruscitti, Tornatore, Zay? Which Democrat DuPage County officials support me – Chaplin, Covert, DeSart, Kaczmarek, Ozog, Renehan, Ruthledge, Seimon?) 
https://www.rcfp.org/rcfp-karem-amicus-brief/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: First Amendment and due process require the White House restore Playboy correspondent’s credentials, RCFP argues. On Aug. 20, journalist Brian Karem, the White House correspondent for Playboy, filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham asking the federal district court in Washington, D.C., to vacate the White House’s 30-day suspension of his hard pass and order that it be immediately restored. Today, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Karem, arguing that the White House must provide meaningful due process before denying, suspending, or revoking a journalist’s security credentials, and failure to do so in this case violates settled law in the D.C. Circuit and constitutional protections guaranteeing the flow of information to the public. “The White House cannot suspend or revoke journalists’ credentials without due process, based on vague standards that have never been publicly articulated,” said Bruce Brown, executive director of the Reporters Committee. “Under clear legal precedent, Mr. Karem’s credentials must be restored.” Before the White House had made its final determination to suspend Karem’s hard pass on Aug. 16, the Reporters Committee issued a statement expressing its concern over the “preliminary decision” to suspend his hard pass and reiterated its commitment to ensuring that journalists have the access needed to do their jobs effectively. In November 2018, the Reporters Committee also filed a friend-of the-court brief alongside Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection in support of a lawsuit brought by CNN and the network’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, after the White House revoked Acosta’s hard pass. On Nov. 16, a federal judge ordered the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials.)

August 24 Morning Edition

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— I urge all Wheaton residents who oppose the sale of recreational pot to speak during the public comment period at all Wheaton meetings against the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton. The next Wheaton meeting starts at 7:00 PM, Monday, August 26. I urge all DuPage County residents who oppose the sale of recreational pot to speak during the public comment period at all DuPage County meetings against the sale of recreational pot in the unincorporated areas of DuPage County. The next DuPage County meeting starts at 10:00 AM, Tuesday, August 27. At previous Wheaton City Council meetings, Bob Cherry, B. J. Slinger, Tim Whelan, and I have called for Wheaton to ban the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton. At previous DuPage County Board meetings, Dick Furstenau and I have called for DuPage County to ban the sale of recreational pot in the unincorporated areas of DuPage County. – Dave Diersen

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— At its regular meeting 10:00 AM, Tuesday, August 27, 2019, the DuPage County Board will have an “Informational Discussion of Cannabis as it Relates to Zoning Regulations.” During the public comment period at the start of the meeting, I will again urge DuPage County to be the first county in Illinois to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas.

Because of me, and because of what I do for you as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor, “DuPage County Board Chairman and County Board Staff” have issued “DuPage County Media Guidelines.” SEE: https://www.dupageco.org/CountyBoard/Docs/61283/  Obviously, the guidelines were issued a) to paint me as not being a legitimate “media member,” b) to discourage/stop me from asserting that I am a “media member,” and c) to discourage/stop me from “lobbying or paid advertising, publicity or promotion work.”

What is the Daily Herald’s position on these guidelines? All Daily Herald employees constantly lobby for the Democrat, Libertarian, and/or Green party platforms.

I should write a book about those who have worked the hardest since 2000 a) to paint me as not being a legitimate “media member,” b) to discourage/stop me from asserting that I am a “media member,” and c) to discourage/stop me from “lobbying or paid advertising, publicity or promotion work.” I would focus on those who a) promote pot, b) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, c) reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, d) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, e) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or f) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid. – Dave Diersen

Individuals, organizations, companies, and governments that are the following do NOT support me: a) those that are anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-patriotic, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time and b) those that promote pot; reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks; reject the Milton Township Republican Central Committee resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution; focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate; were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed; and/or are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid. – Dave Diersen

— OUTSTANDING: Bolingbrook board was blunt — no cannabis businesses in village – ALEX ORTIZ
https://www.theherald-news.com/2019/08/14/bolingbrook-board-was-blunt-no-cannabis-businesses-in-village/av0vrpj/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The village of Bolingbrook Board of Trustees voted Tuesday night to prohibit cannabis business establishments within its boundaries. The trustees voted 5-1 in favor of the prohibition. Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said he was in favor of prohibiting cannabis businesses in the village and decried how the state government passed the legislation to legalize it. “I philosophically have a real problem with governments which have turned to drugs and gambling to balance their budgets,” he said. “That’s what the state’s come to.” The village’s ordinance cited the state’s Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act, which allows municipalities to prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments. Ken Teppel, the village’s public safety director, spoke about the Bolingbrook Police Department’s opposition to allowing cannabis businesses in town. He also talked about the challenges posed to police departments in other states that have already legalized recreational cannabis use, like Colorado. For example, Teppel said cannabis businesses have been targets for theft because they deal solely in cash to be in compliance with federal banking laws. He added that, for police, it’s more difficult to investigate such crimes without a paper trail. He also talked about other problems like black markets developing around legal dispensaries, the high potency of the drug nowadays, potential dangers with flammable materials used to grow the plant, and trying to develop a test for impaired drivers who have used the drug. During public comments, the opinions among the handful of residents who spoke were mixed. Trustee Bob Jaskiewicz was the only “no” vote. He said it was a mistake to not have a public hearing before holding a vote on the prohibition. “I want us to consider other points as to why a dispensary would be a good thing,” Jaskiewicz said. Claar told Jaskiewicz to take up the issue with state legislators because, unlike other states, which held a referendum, Illinois “chose to ignore the public” and didn’t ask voters. Claar said lawmakers were already discussing a possible trailer bill to clarify and fix issues with the initial law that passed. The mayor also made sure to emphasize that the ordinance was only prohibiting commercial businesses selling cannabis and not recreational use of the drug. Trustee Mary Alexander Basta made the point that the ordinance could be revised in the future. Recreational cannabis use and possession will be legal in Illinois starting Jan. 1, 2020.)

GLEN ELLYN PATCH
— Recreational Pot Up For Discussion In Glen Ellyn August 19 Do you think recreational marijuana should be sold in Glen Ellyn? – Lisa Marie Farver (DIERSEN: The Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) should pass a resolution against the sale of pot in Milton Township and in the rest of DuPage County like it passed a resolution against video gambling in 2009. Republican Precinct Committeemen in Glen Ellyn should attend Glen Ellyn’s meeting on August 19 and Republican Precinct Committeemen in Wheaton should attend Wheaton’s meeting on August 26. They should call for banning the sale of pot in their municipalities. Past and present MTRCC officers should attend the aforesaid meetings and call for banning the sale of pot. At previous Wheaton City Council meetings, Bob Cherry, B. J. Slinger, Tim Whelan, and I have called for Wheaton to ban the sale of pot. At previous DuPage County Board meetings, Dick Furstenau and I have called for DuPage County to ban the sale of pot in the unincorporated parts of DuPage County.)

So far more say ‘no’ or leaning no – Elena Ferrarin (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, each of Illinois’s 1,298 municipalities and each of its 102 counties should ASAP ban the sale of pot. Further, Wheaton’s Mayor, Wheaton’s 5 City Council members, applicants to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy, DuPage County’s Board Chairman, and DuPage County’s 18 Board members including Eckhoff and Elliot, should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in all of DuPage County’s 38 municipalities and in its unincorporated areas. Further, a) the Illinois Republican Party should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in all of Illinois, b) the DuPage County Republican Central Committee and the other 101 Republican county party organizations in Illinois should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in their counties, c) the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, the 8 other Republican township party organizations in DuPage County, and all the other Republican township and ward party organizations in Illinois should ASAP call banning the sale of pot in their townships and wards, d) each and every elected and appointed government official in Illinois and candidates for those offices including Almiron, Berlin, Bucholz, Curran, Grogan, Grant, Henry, Holder, Ives, Jorgensen, Kachiroubas, Mazzochi, Mendrick, Oberweis, Ruscitti, Sanguinetti, and Wehrli, should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in their jurisdictions, and d) each and every law enforcement, medical, religious, education, etc. leader in Illinois should ASAP call for banning the sale of pot in Illinois.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190727/are-suburbs-going-to-allow-sale-of-marijuana-so-far-more-say-no-or-leaning-no
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville Councilman Kevin Coyne, who led the effort to prevent the sale of recreational marijuana in the city, said he believes more municipalities will say “no.” “I do feel this should not belong in the suburbs,” Coyne said. The main concerns are a potential increase in traffic crashes, use among teens and consumption of harder drugs, Coyne said. . .The state will issue up to 75 retail dispensary licenses, including 47 in the Chicago metro area, before May 1. Existing medical cannabis dispensaries can apply for early approval licenses to either sell recreational marijuana on site or at a different location. Up to 110 licenses will be available by December 2021. . .Bloomingdale Village Trustee Frank Bucaro said he’s perfectly OK not getting additional revenues because he believes recreational marijuana will bring about a slew of negative consequences, particularly for youth. “How do you put a dollar amount on that?” Bucaro said.)

ATLANTA JOURNAL CONSTITUTION
— 7 ways your resume is holding you back – Mary Caldwell (DIERSEN: Applicants to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy are required to submit their resume. The deadline is Tuesday, 5:00 PM, August 6, 2019. I am updating my resume for the first time in almost 22 years. What suggestions do you have for me?) 
https://www.ajc.com/business/employment/ways-your-resume-holding-you-back/nAj4CDe0npKjkNkrD9xhqN/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: You didn’t include dates. In an effort to avoid age discrimination, some job candidates will leave dates off their resume. But this is such an expected part of a resume that leaving it off stands out in a negative way, U.S. News & World Report warns. If you’re worried about revealing your age, include only your last 15 years of experience. This time period is often more relevant to employers, so it gives them the information they need without aging yourself. You have unexplained gaps in your employment. Employers usually understand that life happens and that gaps in work history aren’t uncommon, WiseBread says. What concerns them, however, is large gaps without any explanation. If you have periods of unemployment, include a single line of explanation, such as “Family Care” if you took time off while raising your kids or “Volunteering for XYZ organization.” . . . You list irrelevant work experience Related experience usually matters most to employers, so if you include irrelevant past experience, you’re distracting the recruiter, according to The Muse. Include only those skills that can be transferred to the position you’re applying for instead of every job you’ve ever held. Provide details about any accomplishments or training that could benefit you in the job you’re applying for.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The match-up will be the biggest GOP primary for Congress in Illinois.

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.

(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.)

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.

During the next 4 years, GAO got rid of all its employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who GAO had not promoted to 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.)
