— Coronavirus Too Great an Opportunity for Left to Waste – Clarence McKee (DIERSEN: What do you say to RINO candidates in Illinois who talk and/or act like they might dump Trump and his supporters like me to win on March 17, 2020 and November 3, 2020?)
https://www.newsmax.com/clarencevmckee/scalise-virginia-pittsburg-synagogue/2020/03/16/id/958544/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As the nation panics over the coronavirus (COVID-19), Washington Democrats and their media allies are doing their best to weaponize the issue. From their point of view, the virus is too great a political opportunity to waste. The weaponizing of the virus for political gain has already begun — at the expense of the economy and the livelihoods of Americans. You would think that, in this time of national crisis, Democratic leaders would call for political unity in fighting the disease — not quite. Instead, they are spreading their own “virus of divisiveness.” Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accused the Trump administration of “incompetence and recklessness” [that] has “threatened the lives of many people in our country.” Former Vice-President Biden added more fuel to the virus panic, saying, ” . . . Public fears are being compounded by a pervasive lack of trust in this president.” This is just more of the left’s divisive rhetoric. It’s so disgusting to hear Washington Democrats, left-wing media pundits, supporters of Joe Biden — and Biden himself — say that President Trump has created an atmosphere of hate and divisiveness in the country. On ABC’s “This Week” in February of this year, Biden said that Trump was “dividing us based on race” and that he “has not condemned white supremacy and neo-Nazis.”)

Neither the RNC, IRP, DCRCC, nor MTRO a) pay me anything, b) help me put the emails together or send them out, or c) encourage anyone to read the emails. I should write a book about those who paint themselves as being operatives or as dupes for the RNC, IRP, DCRCC, and/or MTRO who do everything that they can a) to stop me from putting the emails together and sending them out and b) to stop everyone from reading the emails.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The action comes on the heels of a State Department decision on Feb. 18 requiring five Chinese news organizations considered organs of the government to register as foreign missions and provide the names of employees. China responded by expelling three Beijing-based Wall Street Journal reporters, condemning as “racist” an essay that ran on the paper’s opinion page criticizing China’s response to the coronavirus outbreak. Senior State Department officials said the decision to cap the number of Chinese nationals working for the designated “propaganda outlets” in the United States at 100 overall, down from 160, reflected growing concern of a crackdown on press freedoms for both Chinese and foreign journalists. “For years the government of the PRC has imposed increasingly harsh surveillance, harassment and intimidation against American and other foreign journalists in China,” said one official, speaking on the condition of anonymity under State Department rules and using the acronym for the People’s Republic of China. “President Trump has made clear that Beijing’s restrictions on foreign journalists are misguided. He’s also made clear that the U.S. will establish long overdue reciprocity in our relations with China.”)

I worked for GAO on audits of IRS 1986-1988 at the GS-13 Step 1-3 levels, currently $101,176-$107,922/year.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20200219/business/302199920/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Revenue officers across the country will increase face-to-face visits with taxpayers who had income of more than $100,000 during a tax year and did not file a return in 2018 or prior years. ‘The IRS is committed to fairness in the tax system, and we want to remind people across all income categories that they need to file their taxes,’ Paul Mamo, director of collection operations for the IRS small-business and self-employed division said in a statement. The IRS is increasing the face-to-face visits after hiring additional enforcement personnel. The agency said the visits are aimed at informing these taxpayers of their obligations and bringing them into compliance. The IRS reminds taxpayers that there options available to those who cannot pay their bill in full, such as payment plans, and reminds taxpayers it is important to file on time, even if they cannot pay. For those who refuse to pay, the IRS can pursue civil and criminal cases. However, the IRS said not confuse these efforts with a scam. The taxpayers being visited have typically received several letters from the IRS over an extended period of time, so they generally realize they have a tax issue. While IRS revenue officer visits are unannounced, they will always provide two forms of official credentials. A legitimate officer will help a taxpayer understand and meet their obligation. But they will not make threats nor demand an unusual form of payment. More information on how to identify a legitimate IRS representative and how to report scams can be found on the IRS website at IRS.gov.)

— Diersen asks the Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) to host a candidate forum for the Republican Wheaton West District City Council candidates at its 7:00 PM Wednesday August 14, 2019 meeting at the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream, or alternatively, during the following 2 weeks.

The Republican candidates are Edward Ahern, Jeffery Antonelli, Angela Blatner, Dave Diersen, Nancy Harding, Mark Kmiecik, and Robert McNeily.

Diersen asks MTRCC to provide relevant information about the aforesaid candidates to its members who represent Republican voters in Wheaton’s West District. Those MTRCC members are Joseph Caruso, Dave Diersen, Thomas Elsner, Arthur Grant, Ralph Hinkle, Marty Keller, John Kocinski, Robert Krzyzewski, Michael Hinsdale, Jae Kwon, Robert Larsen, Connor McCarthy, Robert McNeily, Ronald Menna, Elizabeth Tatro, James Ryan, Mark Thomas, and Herbert Wehling.

The goal of the candidate forum and providing information on the candidates is to help the aforesaid Wheaton West District MTRCC members recommend the best possible candidate to be appointed to fill the Wheaton West District City Council vacancy.   

Many Republican candidates, elected officials, and party leaders routinely attend MTRCC meetings. I hope that the following will attend MTRCC’s August 14 meeting: a) 6th Congressional District candidates Jeanne Ives and Evelyn Sanguinetti; b) DuPage County Recorder candidates Ron Almiron and Babette Holder; c) Wheaton’s mayor and City Council members; d) Illinois officials including Amy Grant; e) DuPage County officials including Robert Berlin, Fred Bucholz, Daniel Cronin, Pete DiCianni, Grant Eckhoff, Timothy Elliott, Robert Grogan, Gwen Henry, Richard Jorgensen, Christopher Kachiroubas, Robert Larsen, Paula McGowen, James Mendrick, Al Murphy, Sean Noonan, Jeffrey Redick, Darlene Ruscitti, Timothy Whelan, and Jim Zay; f) Milton Township officials including Sal Falbo, Chris Heidorn, Gail Hinkle, Marty Keller, Chris LeVan, Gary Muehlfelt, David Molitor, John Monino, and Yada Nathwani; g) Wheaton Park District officials including Michael Benard; h) School District 200 officials; and i) College of DuPage officials including Annette Corrigan, Christine Fenne, Heidi Holan, and Frank Napolitano.

Further, I ask MTRCC to brief its members at the meeting on actions being taken to ban the sale of pot in DuPage County’s unincorporated areas and in Wheaton, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Downers Grove, Naperville, Warrenville, West Chicago, and the rest of the 38 municipalities in DuPage County. – Dave Diersen
