— Democrats Cite Discredited SPLC to Sic the IRS on Conservative ‘Hate Groups’ – TYLER O’NEIL
https://pjmedia.com/trending/dems-cite-discredited-splc-to-sic-the-irs-on-hate-groups/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Yet (LaHood) also warned that “the IRS should not be used as a political tool to discriminate against organizations that differ in viewpoints. … We cannot use political disagreement as a metric to define hate speech or a hate group. This type of labeling can and has led to violent acts.” “I know my colleague just referenced the Southern Poverty Law Center,” LaHood said. “In 2012, an armed man named Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Family Research Council Washington headquarters with the intent to shoot and kill as many of its employees as possible. He was apprehended, but not before wounding the non-profit’s business manager. Mr. Corkins later told the FBI that he had seen the nonprofit group listed as an anti-gay hate group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website.” LaHood did not call for the IRS to revoke the SPLC’s non-profit status (although some, notably Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), have called for an investigation, not because the SPLC is liberal but because it only targets Republicans for its accusations of “hate.”). He merely joined other Republicans in warning that government attempts to crack down on “hate” could discriminate against lawful organizations based on their political viewpoints.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds. The two parties represent radically different slices of the American economy.- Aaron Zitner, Dante Chinni, Jessica Wang, and Danny Dougherty (DIERSEN: Who do you have little in common with? I have little in common with those who 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, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)
https://www.wsj.com/graphics/red-economy-blue-economy/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap. Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and low-skill manufacturing. . .Household income tells a similar story. A decade ago, median household income was about the same for each party. Since then, it has jumped nearly 17% in Democratic districts while falling 3% in Republican ones. . .Republican districts, by contrast, hold growing shares of the nation’s agriculture, mining and low-skill manufacturing jobs, many of which do not require a college degree, have lower pay and are more exposed to overseas competition. . .People with college degrees are more concentrated in Democratic districts than in Republican districts. . .Why does this matter? “When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way,” said Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union, “let alone recognize that a problem exists.”)

— Opt Out Hosts a Rally to Prevent the Selling of Marijuana – Aysha Ashley (DIERSEN: The many outstanding speakers at this outstanding event included Coyne, Gustin, and McCluskey. The many attendees included Anderson, Klaeren, Leong, Prueter, Rudolph, and Ruhl.)
https://www.nctv17.com/news/opt-out-hosts-a-rally-to-prevent-legalizing-marijuana/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “No” to Selling Recreational Marijuana  Opt Out Naperville, a newly formed resident group, hosted a rally with around 300 people at Central Park to urge City Council to vote “no” on selling recreational marijuana. “If they are not willing to opt out permanently, then let’s opt out and then send a referendum vote to the people and let the people decide what they want here,” said Jennifer Bruzan Taylor, organizer of the rally. “We have nine people on the dais at city council. This decision will shape the entire community, the future of it.” Council Members And it’s the future generation that some council members are concerned about. “We want to send a message to our young people. Our young people need our leadership. We had two young men from the high school level come and speak in front of the city council and they’re speech was all about opting out. And we as City Council need to be leaders and I think we should be,” said Councilwoman Patty Gustin. The Speakers Two high school students joined the multiple speakers who were there including a doctor, community youth pastor, and a recovered marijuana user. “I came from a really solid family, I came from good morals, good convictions. And I spent the next almost 18 years of my life chasing recovery because of the very first time I smoked marijuana,” said speaker Nick Gore. . .Opt Out But in the local society, others do not want this to happen. “I don’t think people want to come to the Thursday night band show concerts in the summer with the smell of marijuana in the air. I don’t think we want to go to the parks and bring our children with the smell of marijuana in the air,” said attendee Joan Dupre. Opt Out Naperville plans to attend Tuesday’s City Council meeting.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190831/rally-urges-naperville-to-opt-out-of-legalized-marijuana-sales
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Close to 200 Naperville residents opposed to the possibility of the city eventually allowing the sale of recreational marijuana held a rally downtown Saturday urging city officials to “opt out.” “Naperville has built its reputation over the years as a family friendly community,” said Jennifer Bruzan Taylor, one of the rally’s organizers. “There is nothing family friendly about marijuana.” Speakers at the rally included doctors, city council members, parents and community organizers who said the city would see a rise in crime, drug use by youths and mental health problems if recreational sales of marijuana were allowed. “We’ve heard from expert after expert you get expanded drug use, especially among young people, in communities that allow marijuana sales,” said Naperville City Councilman Kevin Coyne.)

https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190831/inclusion-or-indoctrination-how-opposing-sides-view-teaching-lgbtq-history-in-schools
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “The foundational issue is the leftist presuppositions about the nature and morality of homosexual activity,” said Laurie Higgins, cultural issues writer for the Illinois Family Institute. “The left relies on the assumption that homosexuality and opposite-sex identification are analogous to race, which is absurd. This is when education is transformed into indoctrination.” Higgins said the law is problematic because it doesn’t specify when LGBTQ history can be taught. The group vehemently opposes teaching such material in elementary schools. “If kids can’t understand the foundational assumptions, it is age-inappropriate,” she said. “It would be acceptable, if the teachers agreed to spend equal time on having students study the best resources on both sides of the (LGBTQ) debate in high school.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: A federal survey shows nearly 67 million Americans binge drink at least monthly, meaning women down four drinks during a single occasion, men five. Midwestern states have some of the highest binge-drinking rates in terms of both prevalence and intensity, putting millions of people at risk. Research links excessive alcohol use to fatty liver, cirrhosis and cancers of the breast, liver, colon, mouth and throat as well as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, anxiety and depression. Nearly half of murders involve alcohol, according to studies. Drinking kills about 88,000 people annually, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Such diseases and social ills cost the nation an estimated $249 billion a year. Even one drink a day is unhealthy, said Dr. Sarah Hartz, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis. “If you’re going to drink, know it’s not good for you.”)

— MARCH 14, 2019 FLASHBACK: How can you defend a president who is a danger to democracy? – Michael Gerson (DIERSEN: What discourages people from coming to your defense? My critics/opponents have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. They have demonstrated that they can and that they will viciously destroy anyone who comes to my defense. Attend a Milton Township Republican Central Committee meeting or event and watch my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in action.)

— Capitalism and liberty are essential for prosperity – Ken Calvert
https://www.ocregister.com/2019/08/08/capitalism-and-liberty-are-essential-for-prosperity-ken-calvert/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As most people know, nothing in life is free, and neither is a massive expansion of government programs. Don’t let socialists fool you — we cannot pay for their programs with just a tax hike on the wealthiest Americans. To cover the costs of the government they dream of, we’d need to impose huge tax increases on everyone from middle-class families to small business owners.)

SELINA JOURNAL
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A Trump-hater says “President Trump is not one of us.” Since I became a Republican Precinct Committeeman in Wheaton in 1999, those who dominate the Milton Township Republican Precinct (MTRCC) have stressed that I am not one of them. To be “one of them,” you have to blindly serve as an operative or as a dupe from those who dominate the MTRCC. My MTRCC critics/opponents a) reject planks in the Republican Party platform and/or the Illinois Republican Party platform and work against those like me who support those planks, b) reject the MTRCC resolution against video gambling and work against those like me who support that resolution, c) focus on destroying those like me who they cannot manipulate/dominate, d) were defendants in lawsuits that I have filed, and/or e) are operatives or dupes for the aforesaid.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Simi Valley City Council member Ruth Luevanos is now facing possible recall and censure stemming from a controversial video she made in her City Hall office advising immigrants of their legal rights prior to recent ICE raids. During public comments at Monday night’s council meeting, Simi resident Joe Piechowski said he was there to serve Luevanos with a notice of intention to circulate a recall petition. Such a notice is the first formal step in a very protected recall process in which Piechowski will eventually have to gather about 11,000 signatures of Simi Valley registered voters to hold a recall election. Piechowski received conflicting signals from city officials as to serving Luevanos with the notice.)

One could hint/imply/argue/shout that I am NOT “one of their own.” Even though I have been a member of the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) since 1999, those who ran/run MTRCC have never asked me to serve as a chairman of a committee or as an officer. MTRCC rudely fired me as its webmaster in 2010 and 2004. When I ran for the open MTRCC Treasurer position in 2004, 69 voted for my opponent who went negative against me and only 13 voted for me.

I condemn this unauthorized posting and it has been deleted. I am sorry if anyone who saw the image was offended by the contents. This unauthorized posting is an unfortunate distraction from the serious debate surrounding the policies advocated by these four socialist members of the United States House of Representatives of which I strongly disagree. Republican opposition to their proposed “Green New Deal”, elimination of all private health insurance, open borders and anti-Semitic posturing has nothing to do with these Representative’s races or religion. The RCCA has a multi-stage, approval process for all social media posts on any of the RCCA’s social media properties. Nevertheless, the RCCA’s internal review process is being re-evaluated to insure that any content posted in the future represents the “big-tent” nature of the Republican Party.” Also, ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider responds to the recent Facebook post on the Illinois Republican Chairman’s Association page: “I strongly condemn evoking race or religion as the basis for political disagreement. The recent social media post coming from the IRCCA does not reflect my values or the Illinois Republican Party’s values. Bigoted rhetoric greatly distracts from legitimate and important policy debates and further divides our nation. My intense disagreement with the socialist policies and anti-semitic language of these four congresswomen has absolutely nothing to do with their race or religion. I urge everyone who also opposes them to keep the rhetoric focused on policy and political ideology.”)

http://abc7chicago.com/education/new-york-makes-college-tuition-free—with-big-string-attached/1856637/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: There’s a big string attached to New York’s free middle-class college tuition initiative: Students must stay in the state after graduation or else pay back the benefit. Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that the requirement was added to protect the state’s investment in a student’s education by ensuring they don’t take advantage of free tuition and then leave New York. The tuition initiative, which Cuomo said is a national model, covers state college or university tuition for in-state students from families earning $125,000 or less. Students must remain in New York for as many years as they received the benefit. They must repay the money as a loan if they take a job in another state.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: My father was born in India under British rule. The British were few, but they were wealthy. The Indians were many but they were kept poor. They were pit against one another based on what religion they practiced, where they lived, and what language they spoke. The British kept Indians jobless, uneducated, and without medical services. This was the world my dad grew up in, and it’s the world being created by the broken policies of Donald Trump and Bruce Rauner. It’s been 21 months and counting without a budget because Rauner wants there to be no budget. In his race to destroy the social safety net, he wants the chaos that comes from slashing school funding, closing health clinics, and encouraging companies to leave the state. I am running for governor because I’m tired of Bruce Rauner and his billionaire friends being the happiest they’ve ever been as millions of families suffer from lack of jobs, health care, and educational opportunities. I am running because I want to ensure my daughter doesn’t grow up in the kind of world that oppressed my dad.)
