NBC5
— A Lesson From Trump Taxes: an Underfunded IRS Is Outmatched The IRS has tended to pursue taxpayers of modest means more aggressively than they have high-powered businesspeople – Marcy Gordon and Paul Wiseman (DIERSEN: Virtually all, if not all IRS employees are Democrats. I worked for IRS for almost 9 years 1971-1980, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 Step 1-5 levels, currently $85,084-$96,431/year. I worked for GAO on audits of IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division for 3 years at the GS-13 Step-1-3 levels, currently $101,176-$107,922/year. Democrats use tax return information to destroy Republicans. In 1978, the Democrats at Money Magazine and the Democrats at IRS used my tax returns to hint/imply/argue/shout that my education deductions were improper and should be disallowed. They hinted/implied/argued/shouted that the graduate business courses that I had taken at Loyola 1972-1976 and the graduate accounting courses that I had taken at DePaul 1976-1977 a) were not job-related, b) did not help me carry out my job duties, c) were taken by me to qualify me for a “new trade or business,” d) were taken by me to get a job in the private sector, and e) were a distraction. To get rid of me, my Democrat IRS superiors had me “under investigation” 1974-1977. SEE GAO DECISION: http://www.gao.gov/products/463866 During the 1970s, IRS purposely kept its definition of “commuting area” vague so that it could use it to punish or to reward its employees. When my IRS Democrat superiors succeeded in getting rid of the IRS manager who had promoted me in 1972, 1973, and 1974, they used an extremely broad definition of “commuting area” for its downtown Chicago office to disallow my partial day per diem claims. They hinted/implied/argued that my partial day per diem claims were fraudulent. Needless-to-say, that ended my IRS career. They would not have done that if I had been a Democrat, a minority, a female, or a veteran.)

— Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark Curran said he didn’t like Trump’s debate tone but is still ‘all in’: “He probably doesn’t need my advice, and what I know about him is he’s not going to take my advice — we’re different people,” the GOP candidate, who’s facing Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, tells The Spin. But he’d probably advise him to tone it down. Curran, who says he’s “all in” for Trump, said he thinks of his late mother and conservative seniors still living who are watching this and “want to see manners, they don’t like the interrupting.” Asked about the president’s decision not to denounce white supremacists and his comments from the podium for the extremist group Proud Boys to “stand down and stand by,” Curran said he didn’t know what that meant. “I think the majority of people that are conservative want nothing to do with that kind of organization. And really, I’m Catholic, so it’s not really a conservative or liberal thing. We (the church and its members) would never approve of people that act that way.” – LISA DONOVAN

(FROM THE ARTICLE: #49. Illinois Total Illinois presidential campaign donations: $14.2 million (#6 highest among states) Presidential campaign donations per capita: $1.12 Donations to Donald Trump: $7 million (49.7% of all donations) Donations to Joe Biden: $7.1 million (50.3% of all donations) State fundraising advantage: Joe Biden (+$73,000) Despite being ahead in donations by only a small margin in Illinois, Biden shouldn’t have too hard a time competing there—the state voted for a Democrat in the past seven presidential contests in a row. With 20 electoral votes, it’s the biggest prize in the Midwest.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: One could ask: If Blacks are discriminated against, why would a White Jewish woman who grew up in suburban Kansas City pretend to be Black? What do you say to those who have urged me to pretend that I am of Swedish national origin to avoid the German sigma? During the 1840s and 1850s, all my ancestors immigrated to northeast Illinois from what is now Germany. Of course, needless-to-say, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always used that against me. In my defense, I stress 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 my father would have fought the Germans during WWII if he had not been 4-F. Further, 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.)

— Hinsdale Black Lives Matter group creates outlet for minorities to share experiences – CHUCK FIELDMAN
https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/hinsdale/ct-dhd-hidden-stories-tl-0813-20200806-buvf6vapqfeafie2gzsgwmvite-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mryan said she was particularly troubled by a comment made on social media about the Hinsdale Black Lives Matter group. “They said that Hinsdale is a utopia, so why would we want this here,” she said. “If it’s going to be a utopia, hearing these stories is very important.” Mryan said all submissions of experiences are anonymous, a decision the group made after consideration. “It was about weighing the possibility of someone making up a story that is told versus the possibility of someone with a story not telling it,” she said. “I have faith in the people who are sharing their stories.” The Hinsdale Black Lives Matter group attracted about 500 people to its June 6 demonstration. Mryan said the demonstration was organized in the wake of the May 25 death of George, but added that there is more to it than that incident.)

(FROM THE PROMOTION: This event will celebrate the retirement of the majority rule over the second-largest county in the state, which we predict will happen after the county election this November. We hope to educate participants about and demand the removal of Peter DiCianni, a member of the DuPage County board who has shown disrespect towards his constituents and the black community as well as endangered their health, as detailed by Hinsdale for BLM here and by multiple news outlets (Patch, MySuburbanLife.com). We also are pushing for 22 state policy initiatives that could be done in the next Illinois legislative session that would help stop the killing of BIPOC when they are signed into law. We will aim to raise awareness about things like the Census, Mail-in Voting, and the Illinois Fair Tax proposal. This event includes speakers (local candidates, youth activists and organizers, and educators), a COVID-19 testing car caravan, voter registration, public commenters sent to the DuPage County board meeting, a march, music, and a celebration to mark the upcoming retirement of the Republican majority in the board, which we predict will happen by the end of this year.)

— Safe DuPage celebrating law enforcement on July 4 – Marie Wilson
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20200703/safe-dupage-celebrating-law-enforcement-on-july-4
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Naperville’s fireworks are being shot off from the south side of town and the debut of The Naperville Salute has been postponed until 2021, but there is one Fourth of July event planned to bring patriotism to the downtown Saturday. Safe DuPage, an organization formed by Naperville City Council member Kevin Coyne, is hosting “Celebrating Naperville’s Heroes: 4th of July” at 9:30 a.m. at the base of the Millennium Carillon in Moser Tower at Rotary Hill, 455 Aurora Ave. Coyne said the event will include music and speakers in a socially distanced format with all attendees asked to wear masks and follow U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Attendees also are asked to wear red, white and blue and to bring an American flag to wave. The purpose of the gathering, Coyne said, is to celebrate American independence and local safety. Speakers are set to include veterans, community leaders and elected officials. “We thought it’d be nice for an assortment of reasons to kick off the Fourth of July with a nice, patriotic-themed event that recognizes our public safety officers in Naperville who have done such a great job for so long,” Coyne said. The event is not a pro-police rally, like the one June 27 in Elmhurst, at which DuPage County Board member Pete DiCianni was seen on video confronting counterprotesters. But in the wake of protests about the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Coyne said, it’s important to show local law enforcement professionals they are appreciated. “You can’t have a free society that’s safe without good, strong law enforcement,” he said. “I think our police officers in general and our community needs to know that we’re not turning our back on our police, and police need to be respected.” The Fourth of July event is one of several Safe DuPage has hosted since forming early this year to promote public safety. Other town hall-style events, in person or online, have covered topics including crime, substance abuse, youth issues and court procedures. The events have featured elected officials and nonprofit leaders as speakers. For details about the event, visit https://safedupage.org/events/ .)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The LaFayette fireworks display comes with its own bit of political intrigue: the event is being organized by Dave Knapp, the Republican chairman of the Onondaga County Legislature. LaFayette’s town supervisor, who helped bring the event together, is Republican Danny Fitzpatrick, son of longtime District Attorney William Fitzpatrick. And McMahon, also a Republican and the former county legislature chairman, said Friday that his administration played a role in changing the scope of festival based on pandemic concerns. But McMahon said Friday that, at no point, did he threaten to shut the event down.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a Twitter post, Ocasio-Cortez claimed the Trump campaign had been scammed by teenage anti-Trump activists who allegedly reserved scores of tickets for the Tulsa event online – then failed to show up, thus preventing others from being able to attend. “Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok,” the New York Democrat wrote in response to a Twitter message by Trump 2020 Campaign chief Brad Parscale, who argued that “Radical protestors” in Tulsa had prevented some of the president’s supporters from entering the BOK Center, where the rally was held. . .Ocasio-Cortez claimed that teens “flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/wayneallynroot/2020/06/21/is-america-starting-down-the-path-of-nazi-germany-n2570979
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many of us don’t fly an American flag at our homes. We don’t dare put a Trump sign on our lawn or in our store window, or put a Trump bumper sticker on our car, for fear of violence or vandalism. On the TV, we all see supposedly rational and respected people calling us racist solely because of the color of our skin. Our free speech is monitored, censored, shadow-banned or outright banned by those who control social media. Our great American history is being destroyed, denigrated or erased. Radicals are toppling the statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and even abolitionists — heroes who bravely fought against slavery. A black NASCAR driver can wrap his car with “Black Lives Matter,” but an NBA announcer loses his job for tweeting, “All Lives Matter,” and a Philadelphia newspaper editor is forced to resign for writing, “Buildings Matter, Too,” as his city burns. NFL superstar quarterback Drew Brees was forced to beg for forgiveness for saying he will always stand for our national anthem. College football coach Mike Gundy was forced to beg for forgiveness from his players for wearing a T-Shirt with the name of the conservative One America News Network. Demented never-Trumper Rick Wilson tried to destroy Domino’s pizza for thanking a prominent Trump supporter for a compliment on its pizza in a corporate tweet…in 2012 …before Trump ever even got into politics.)

— OUTRAGEOUS, DISGUSTING: Glen Ellyn community confused as march organizers aim to rename ‘white supremacist’ Abraham Lincoln Elementary School
https://dupagepolicyjournal.com/stories/539650833-glen-ellyn-community-confused-as-march-organizers-aim-to-rename-white-supremacist-abraham-lincoln-elementary-school
(FROM THE ARTICLE: An anonymous group is gearing up to march on Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Glen Ellyn in an attempt to get District 41 to change the name of the school. A flyer put out by an unknown organization reads “Public institutions should not be named after white supremacists” and includes a quote from Lincoln regarding his fortune in being born white. Lincoln, the country’s 16th president, was a state legislator and congressman from Illinois before ascending to the country’s top leadership position. Lincoln is responsible for the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which formally abolished slavery. “This is so preposterous that it must be a hoax,” Jeanne Ives, a former state legislator and candidate for Illinois’s 6th congressional district said. “Striking Pres. Lincoln’s name from a school? We will keep a watch on this to see if it is real. I stand ready to defend President Abraham Lincoln’s legacy as the Great Emancipator.” Others in the community aligned with Ives regarding the seemingly obvious flawed rationale behind the march. “I am very opposed, but I thought people should know,” John Mitchell said when posting the listing on the Happening in Glen Ellyn Facebook page. Mitchell said the march was real when asked by a poster. “Ummm… isn’t he the one that ended slavery?” Tim Nancy Kehayias said. Jeff Castle was not so restrained. “This is abhorrent,:” Castle posted on Facebook. “Do you ever notice it’s always the same people protesting? College-age kids who have almost no responsibility in life but a protest sounds exciting because we’ve been cooped up at home because of Covid so hell yeah let’s get out there and do something exciting. “Suburban white liberal women who are ‘like super woke n stuff’ Whose husbands pull in 200K+ a year, beta males who Would do just about anything to please their Battle axe of a wife, All of which hate Trump because he’s a racist misogynist xenophobe but have absolutely zero proof of that. Life is too short for this and it’s also not guaranteed, People need to enjoy time with their family and friends and worry about life at home.” The march is announced to begin at 7 p.m. tonight – Saturday, June 13 – with opening remarks outside of the Lake Ellyn boathouse. The group will then walk to the Glen Ellyn village office, give more remarks and walk back to the boathouse. A contingent of pro-Lincoln supporters have noted they will be attending the event and host a counter rally with facts about Lincoln’s efforts which culminated in the abolition of slavery.)

WASHINGTON POST
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: A Trump-hater says “The most racist president in modern history revels in violence.” Ever-increasingly, Trump-haters label Trump and his supporters as being racists. To label someone as being a racist in America today is like labeling someone as being a Jew in Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. Needless-to-say, individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are labeled as being racist should sue those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that labeled them as being racist. Needless-to-say, the Republican Party should sue the Democrat Party.)
