https://patch.com/illinois/wheaton/calendar/event/20200714/856167/the-majoritys-retirement-party-a-protest-march-and-rally
(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.)

July 4 Morning Edition

DAILY HERALD
— 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: 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.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Wheaton, Carmin Awadzi came to a Black Lives Matter rally at Adams Park out of fear. Two of her children were going, and she wanted to make sure nothing happened to them. She even told her 16-year-old son to wear his Wheaton Warrenville South High School sweatshirt so people would know he belonged. “That’s our lives every single day here in Wheaton,” she said. “And I’m having to explain that to people — people that we’ve known for a very long time, educated people who are professionals. My husband and I are in the 1% but it still doesn’t matter.” The rally drew a diverse, young-skewing crowd of several hundred who listened to speakers reflect about racial injustice throughout America and close to home.)

Demonstrators met at Adams Park downtown about 1 p.m. The large group of mostly young people then rallied in front of city hall, reconvened in the historic park beside the Wheaton Public Library and began dispersing shortly before 5 p.m. The Downtown Wheaton Association has recommended businesses remain closed until Friday morning as a precaution ahead of planned protests. Police also have increased patrols. Some businesses may remain open. Before visiting, customers should call ahead to ensure the business is open and confirm their hours.)

SUBURBAN LIFE
— ‘We’re not going to let this happen anymore’ Protesters pack Wheaton park to decry racism – BOB RAKOW (DIERSEN: It would be great if a transcript of everything that was said by the protest speakers would be published.)
https://www.mysuburbanlife.com/2020/06/03/were-not-going-to-let-this-happen-anymore-protesters-pack-wheaton-park-to-decry-racism/ak15fz8/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Three speakers were scheduled for Wednesday’s Black Lives Matter protest in Wheaton’s Adams Park. But 90 minutes after the protest started, more than 20 people had taken the bullhorn, stepped before the crowd of about 1,000 people and offered passionate, emotional and fervent pleas to end racism and police violence against black people. The speakers were while and black, male and female, young and old, but the message was the same: racism in all its forms must end and the battle to stop it once and for all is just beginning. The 1 p.m. protest was planned for Memorial Park, which is fenced off and undergoing improvements, leading participants to move to nearby Adams Park. Protesters, many carrying signs with a wide array of messages including “Black Lives Matter,” “Only Justice Will Bring Peace” and “We Cannot Be Silent Because the Dead Cannot Speak,” formed a large circle in the center of the park and listened to and applauded each speaker, many who initially did not plan to address the crowd. The protest was one of several held Wednesday in DuPage, Cook and Kane counties as people harnessed the opportunity to vent their anger and frustration following the May 25 death of George Floyd, who was killed while in police custody in Minneapolis. “It’s disgusting that we’re begging people to understand that our lives matter, and there are people saying, ‘but this and but that.’ But that’s reality, right? No, because we’re not going to let this happen anymore,” said one speaker, who declined to give her name. “We are not criminals. We are not animals,” she said. “We are humans, we’re beautiful and we are loved,” she continued. She also chastised people who have criticized the phrase Black Lives Matter because they contend it excludes other races. “All lives matter,” she said. “We’re not screaming that only black lives matter. It’s because all lives matter that we are here protesting the ones that are actually targeted. “We’re not here to start a race war, we’re here to end one and finally be at the same level as you. So please, if you’re human, have humanity, open your eyes to what’s been going on in this country because I’m tired of having to explain to you why I’m scared, why I feel little, why l feel hurt.” Jerome Jackson attended the protest with his wife, Julie; son, Lincoln, 6; and daughter, Quinlan, 7. Jackson, a Wheaton resident, said it was critical that his children see the formation of a movement designed to end racism and bigotry. “The importance is for them to not only understand the importance of the message that Black Lives Matters and what it means to the greater good of society, but to our own family knowing that I’m an African American myself and raising two bi-racial children. It’s important for them to understand their roots and culture.” Jackson added that he doesn’t want his children to experience the bigotry he endured as a child. “As someone who grew up primarily in the 80s, I was subjected to bigotry and racism, and I’ve said from the moment they were born that I want them to grow up in a society that doesn’t’ view them for their skin color or tone and just views them as human beings,” he said. He added that the size of the protest was encouraging. “I’m very happy to see as many young people out supporting this cause and just standing up for what is right,” Jackson said. Following the protest, participants marched through downtown Wheaton chanting “Black Lives Matter.” Dan Clinch of Wheaton said he attend the protest because “it was the right thing to do.” “This just can’t go on,” he added. “What happened in Minneapolis, there’s no excuse in the world for it.” Clinch said he expects the movement to continue because Floyd’s death was a tipping point. “You heard the young people today,” he said. “This was very impressive.” Clinch’s daughter, Campbell, a Wheaton North graduate, and a friend of some of the speakers, said she saw numerous racist incidents while attending the high school. “You hear the N-word, you do hear things about white supremacy, you hear people calling African Americans animals. There’s no justification for that,” she said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the U.S., President Trump has continued to belittle the press for its coverage of the virus at live press conferences and on Twitter. On Monday, President Trump deflected blame onto the Washington Post when asked about allegations that China — as well as Russia and Iran — is spreading coronavirus misinformation, saying “every country does it.” Trump last week attacked NBC News reporter Peter Alexander during a live television briefing after being asked what he would say to Americans that were worried about the coronavirus, a question Alexander later said he thought was a “softball,” or an opportunity for the president to answer an easy question. Between the lines: The president’s actions, some fear, give credence to leaders abroad and locally in the U.S. to continue to attack press that they don’t like. Case-in-point: Over the weekend Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, an ally to President Trump, blocked a reporter from attending a coronavirus press briefing. Days earlier, that reporter had asked if briefings could be moved online to protect reporters’ health.
DeSantis has been criticized by Democrats over his response to the coronavirus.)

Daley (DIERSEN: Who hints/implies/argues/shouts that you are “too conservative?” I should write a book about those who hint/imply/argue/shout that I am too conservative. I would focus on those who 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 Milton Township Republican Central Committee 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.)

— Poll: Majority of women say male candidates have advantage running for public office (DIERSEN: How bad are your demographics? Ever-increasingly, Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs shout at everyone that the more of the following that you are, the more likely that you will lose if you seek a government office or a political office: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if ancestors have been in America for a long time. I am all of the aforesaid. I should write a book about those in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois who ever-increasingly do everything that they can to discourage me and discourage those who share my demographics from seeking a government office or a political office. I would focus on past and present a) Illinois Republican Party, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, and Milton Township Republican Central Committee leaders; b) Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois; and c) those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois.)

— Jewish communities face ‘enduring threat’ in the US, federal authorities warn – Josh Margolin, Ella Torres, and Luke Barr (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. Democrats are nasty. I should write a book about my Democrat superiors in the federal government who focused on getting my many Jewish Democrat superiors to take adverse actions against me. They stressed that I was a Republican, that I was 100% German national origin, that I was baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, and that I had lived in Crete 1948-1972. My many Democrat Jewish superiors in the federal government played a major role in all the adverse actions that the federal government took against me. My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $20,157 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

BOSTON HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: According to this article, “Democrats often react badly to negative campaigning.” If you have any skeletons in your closet, you should not seek or hold any kind of government or political office as a Republican. Democrats want those Republican candidates to win primary elections who have the biggest skeletons in their closets. The bigger the skeletons that candidates have in their closets, the easier that it is to defeat those candidates in general elections. If you were a Republican candidate and your primary opponent hinted/implied/argued/shouted that you were a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, and/or bigot, how would you respond? Would you stress the skeletons that your opponent has in his/her closets that the Democrats would use to defeat your primary opponent in the general election?

COMMON DREAMS
— A Federal Job Guarantee Is a Crucial Tool to Fight Inequality A new campaign is building support for proposals to ensure that everyone who wants to work can have a good, living wage job. – Angela Glover Blackwell, Sarah Treuhaft (DIERSEN: Since 1966 when I was 18 years old, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have hinted/implied/argued/shouted that in instead of me, the Post Office should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, and/or a poor veteran in 1966, b) that the Post Office should gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran could have my job, c) that instead of me, IRS should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1971, d) that instead of me, IRS should have promoted a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1972, 1973, and 1974, e) that instead of me, GAO should have hired a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1980, f) that instead of me, GAO should have promoted a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran in 1986, and g) that GAO should have gotten rid of me much sooner than it did so that a poor Democrat, a poor minority, a poor female, a poor younger person, and/or a poor veteran could have my job and my preferred corner office. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes who paint government as being the employer of “last resort” that employs failed disgusting lazy stupid losers who are rejected/dumped by other employers.)
