August 27 Evening Edition

DAILY HERALD
— OUTSTANDING: Wheaton plans to ban recreational pot sales, citing ‘unknowns’ of legalization – Katlyn Smith (DIERSEN: DuPage County Coroner Richard Jorgensen, DuPage County Forest Preserve Commissioner Tim Whelan, Former Milton Township Trustee Don Sender, Wheaton Liquor & Tobacco Control Commission Chairman Mark Taylor, Gary Knosp, and me spoke against the sale of recreational pot in Wheaton at Wheaton’s public hearing on the issue Monday evening, August 26, 2019. Hearing attendees included Bob Cherry and Carl and Dagmar Lofgren.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190827/wheaton-plans-to-ban-recreational-pot-sales-citing-unknowns-of-legalization
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I just don’t see an advantage to being a first mover on this,” Mayor Phil Suess said. “And a very practical consideration: We say yes to this, the next discussion is where does it go? And I’m pretty sure we’re going to have a pretty profound discussion if we went that way in the context of ‘not in my backyard.'” Some council members also prefer to take that wait-and-see approach, indicating they could revisit public health and safety questions once the market establishes itself in towns that are now planning to allow dispensaries. “If we opt out now, we have the ability at any point to opt back in after time has passed and seeing OK, what has Lombard done?” Councilman Christopher Zaruba said. . .”People will prefer to buy their marijuana illegally to avoid the high costs due to taxes and regulation,” Councilwoman Suzanne Fitch said.)
— DuPage County taking more time to consider marijuana sales – Robert Sanchez (DIERSEN: At this meeting, Former Milton Township Trustee Don Sender and I urged DuPage County to ban the sale of pot in its unincorporated areas.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190827/dupage-county-taking-more-time-to-consider-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Board member Tim Elliott urged the county to opt out. “To me, it’s not a question of money,” the Glen Ellyn Republican said. “It’s about what’s the right thing to do for our citizens.” Elliott said it’s possible that state lawmakers will make changes to the cannabis law during the fall veto session. For example, the number of licenses statewide could be increased, he said. “So I would prefer to see us opt out, at least in the short-term, to see what our municipalities do and, frankly, to see what Springfield does,” Elliott said. . .”I am stunned to see that we would even contemplate allowing zoning in an area that close to a high school, whether the regulations are there or not,” said board member Robert Larsen, a Wheaton Republican. “I think that’s a big mistake, and I hope we don’t go that route.”)

— Slavery and the Holocaust: How Americans and Germans Cope With Past Evils – Deborah E. Lipstadt (DIERSEN: Who hates German Americans the most in your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, and in Illinois? Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs are nasty. I should write a book about a) how my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government used and b) how my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois use my 100% German national origin against me. They constantly foisted/foist negative German stereotypes on me. I would focus on those who are German American, but who demonize, denigrate, and condemn me to curry favor with those who hate German Americans. They paint themselves as being “good” German Americans who go around destroying “bad” Germans like me. In my defense, I stress that they all my ancestors immigrated way back during the 1840s and 1850s, that my grandfather on my father’s side fought the Germans during WWI, that my uncles on my mother’s side fought the Germans during WWII, and that if he had not been 4-F, my father would have fought the Germans during WWII. If DNA information had been available back when I worked for the federal government, I would have stressed that. According to http://dna.ancestry.com, my ancestry is 33% Europe West, 28% Scandinavia, 24% Great Britain, 11% Ireland, 2% Europe East, 1% Finland/Northwest Russia, and 1% Italy/Greece.)

— Politicians should stop talking about creating ‘good jobs.’ There are no bad jobs. By calling some jobs ‘good’ and implying others are bad, we’re saying some jobs have no future or, worse, they are not worthy of a person’s effort. – Frayda Levin (DIERSEN: According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, a) all the jobs that I had were bad jobs and b) I was grossly overpaid for those jobs. I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

http://www.fox32chicago.com/politics/arizona-lawmaker-claims-immigrants-are-flooding-and-overwhelming-us-
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A veteran Arizona legislator is apologizing while defending herself from criticism for comments she made on immigration and birth rates. The Phoenix New Times posted audio of a July 15 speech during which state Sen. Sylvia Allen said a flood of immigration and low birth rates among whites amid a lack cultural assimilation mean “we’re going to look like South American countries very quickly.” The Republican from Snowflake, Arizona, who is white, also said the U.S. has to regulate immigration so the country can provide jobs, education, health care and other needs. “We can’t provide that if people are just flooding us and flooding us and flooding us and overwhelming us,” she said.)

— Resident of Baltimore Agrees with Trump: Cummings ‘Hasn’t Done Anything for Us’ – HANNAH BLEAU (DIERSEN: What has your Republican Precinct Committeeman done for the Republican voters in your precinct? Since 2000, I have made GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails available to the Republican voters in my precinct. Those emails have gone out each and every morning since 2004, and each and every evening too since 2015. Since 2004, those emails have included links to more than 341,800 articles and information on many upcoming events. Since 1999, I have kept the Republican voters in my precinct informed of who the Republican candidates were and how many votes they received in the precinct. Since 1999, I have circulated petitions for all the Republican candidates, distributed their literature, and encouraged the voters in the precinct to vote for them. Further, I have the best record by far since 1999 for attending Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) meetings and fundraisers. I served as the MTRCC webmaster 2000-2004 and 2008-2010. I save attended all the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Conventions as a Delegate since 2000 and I served on the 2008 IRP Platform and Resolutions Committee. Further, since 2005, I have raised funds from Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders to help sponsor Wheaton’s Independence Day parades and fireworks. In the process of doing the aforesaid, I have come to know all the Republicans at the federal, state, county, township, and city levels who serve my precinct.)

WASHINGTON POST
— ‘The American Dream has turned into hell’: In test of a deterrent, Juarez plans for U.S. to dump thousands of migrants
By Maria Sacchetti (DIERSEN: My “American Dream” was to have a successful career in the automotive industry. But in 1971, when I was 22 years old, EEOC ended that dream. I had 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. Firestone Stores fired me because I had sought and accepted that job offer. My father had died suddenly; I had to have a job to support my mother and brother, so I accepted a job offer from IRS.)

INC
— How to Have a Positive Mindset at Work Chris Christoff (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, it was very difficult for me to have a positive mindset because my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates did everything that they could to get rid of Republicans, and especially Republicans like me who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran. While I have been a Milton Township Republican Central Committee member since 1999 and while I was a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois member, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, and American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member, it was very difficult for me to have a positive mindset because Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs who were members of the aforesaid organizations did everything that they could to get rid of me and to get rid of everyone who shared my demographics.)
