August 12 Morning Edition

CYBER CIVICS
— Responsibilities of U.S. Citizens (DIERSEN: In my opinion, each and every voter in Wheaton, and especially, each and every voter in Wheaton’s West District and each and every Precinct Committeeman in the district should a) learn everything that they can about the 10 candidates who are seeking to be appointed to fill Wheaton’s West District City Council vacancy, b) analyze that information, c) decide who they believe the best candidate would be and why, and d) communicate that to Wheaton’s City Council by email at [email protected]
http://www.civics.ks.gov/kansas/citizenship/responsibilities-of-citizens.html
(FROM THE POSTING: Staying informed. Citizens have the responsibility to stay informed of the issues affecting their communities, as well as national and international issues, and to be active in the civic processes. This includes being well informed about the issues and candidates before voting in an election, getting involved in a political campaign or running for public office, or using their right to address the government through activism.)

DAILY HERALD
— AUGUST 9, 2019 FLASHBACK: 10 want West District seat on Wheaton City Council – Katlyn Smith (DIERSEN: The Daily Herald has published some information about 5 of the candidates (David Diersen, Robert McNeily, Lynn Robbins, Mark Kmiecik, and Khizar Jafri), but what about the other 5: Nancy Harding, Edward Ahern, Jeffrey Antonelli, Angela Blatner, and Krista Selvey? In my opinion, the Daily Herald should obtain and publish at least the following information about all 10 candidates: How long they have lived in Wheaton, how long they have lived in Wheaton’s West District, their work experience, their education, their professional certifications and licenses, their memberships in professional associations, why they want to be appointed to fill the vacancy, what they believe the three most important issues are that Wheaton needs to address in the next 2 years and how those issues those issues should be addressed, their political affiliation and activities, their civic activities, if they would vote for or against banning the sale of pot in Wheaton, what their position is on Wheaton’s Roosevelt Road corridor, if they would vote for or against requiring employers in Wheaton to use E-Verify, and what they have done that demonstrates they can carry out typical city council functions.) 
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20190809/10-want-west-district-seat-on-wheaton-city-council
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Diersen is the founder of the daily newsletter Gopillinois.com. McNeily lost his bid for the West District seat in 2016 against incumbent Todd Scalzo. According to his LinkedIn page, he is the Midwest regional manager of Turning Point USA, a conservative group founded by Wheeling High School alum Charlie Kirk for college and high school students. Robbins, a former Illinois Park and Recreation Association board member, also ran unsuccessfully against Scalzo for the West District seat in 2016. Kmiecik finished third in another three-way race for the seat in 2009. Jafri, a finance and accounting consultant, lost to Tim Elliott for a District 4 spot on the DuPage County Board in 2016. The Democrat was seeking his first elected office at the time.)

— Sick, Exhausted Agents Stoke Exodus Fear Amid Migrant Surge – Michaela Ross (DIERSEN: I was a National Treasury Employees Union member during the almost 9 years that I worked for IRS 1971-1980.)
https://about.bgov.com/news/sick-exhausted-agents-stoke-exodus-fear-amid-migrant-surge/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Job risks include exposure to tuberculosis, flu, scabies Employee assistance program seeks to help deal with stress Sergio Tinoco used to wear his Border Patrol uniform home with pride. Now, after a typical 10-hour day in heat that can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit, he says many on his team no longer wear their uniforms to or from the job. Tinoco, an agent of 14 years and U.S. military veteran, said his fellow agents in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley are repeatedly falling ill with flu. They’re also seeing scabies, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and lice from waves of about 1,200 migrants crossing through their facilities daily and are worried their uniforms will carry contagions. And that’s not all, he said: Many agents are being harassed in public. “We’re completely exhausted,” Tinoco said in an interview, not speaking in his official capacity. “It takes a toll on the human spirit.” Long work hours and exposure to diseases are driving agents to retire early and take sick leave, union officials and government watchdogs say. While public outrage has focused on the separation of families and children, overcrowding, and unsanitary conditions, policymakers are increasingly concerned about attrition and suicide among the agents on the front lines of the migrant surge. The border agency for years has struggled with attrition, but this year has been one of the toughest in the 95-year old patrol’s history. Migrant children and families crossed the border in record numbers while agents saw their pay delayed by a 35-day government shutdown. The patrol is approximately 7,000 agents short, the Government Accountability Office reported in March. More than 700 customs officers from around the country were diverted this spring when apprehensions soared to more than 130,000. That division of the border agency now faces a shortage of approximately 3,500 officers, said the National Treasury Employees Union, which represents officers.)

DCCC
— RECRUITMENT FAIL: IL-06 GOP Primary Turns Into Full-Blown Civil War
https://dccc.org/recruitment-fail-il-06-gop-primary-turns-full-blown-civil-war/

(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: Firebrand conservative Jeanne Ives launches campaign for Congress after Evelyn Sanguinetti’s horrible fundraising report, setting up a rematch of the nasty 2018 Republican gubernatorial primary. Remember how we said Evelyn Sanguinetti’s week couldn’t get any worse after she got outraised 7-to-1 by Rep. Casten in her first fundraising quarter? Apparently we were wrong. After weeks of speculation, far-right conservative Jeanne Ives officially filed for Congress today in the 6th District – apparently Sanguinetti’s paltry fundraising haul couldn’t scare her off. After Sanguinetti’s ticket barely survived a brutal challenge by Ives in the 2018 Republican primary, expect another toxic race to the conservative fringes this cycle in a district that President Trump lost by seven points. Sanguinetti has already endorsed President Trump’s re-election, so who knows to what extremes Ives will drag her to over the course of a contentious primary. “Today’s announcement sets the stage for a brutal race to the conservative extreme in the 6th District between a floundering Evelyn Sanguinetti and a far-right wing Jeanne Ives,” said DCCC spokesperson Mike Gwin. “While Ives and Sanguinetti battle it out over who can bear-hug President Trump the hardest, Sean Casten will remain focused on delivering for middle-class Illinois families by working to keep down the cost of health care and lowering taxes for homeowners.”)

ILLINOIS MUNICIPAL LEAGUE
— OUTSTANDING: IML Publishes Adult-Use Cannabis Resources (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, someone needs to take the lead in each of Illinois’ 1,298 municipalities and in each of Illinois’ 102 counties to assure that the sale of pot is banned by the end of this year. Illinois Church Action on Alcohol & Addition urges you to “1. Contact your Mayor, Village Trustees, Aldermen, and County Board member to ask them to sponsor or support an ordinance to prohibit retail marijuana sales, dispensaries, and marijuana businesses. 2. Talk with churches/pastoral associations, local law enforcement, doctors, counselors, fire chief and emergency personnel, teachers, school administrators, activists, and others in the community and ask them to write letters and speak at a public hearing in support of a ban on marijuana sales. 3. Attend and speak at Municipal and County Board meetings.”) 
https://www.iml.org/page.cfm?key=22360&slide=380
(FROM THE POSTING: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition Illinois municipalities may prohibit cannabis business establishments from locating in their jurisdiction by adoption of a local ordinance. IML recommends a public hearing in advance of the adoption of such an ordinance to create a record that supports that determination. While local governments are required to allow medical cannabis dispensaries subject only to local zoning provisions, adult-use cannabis business establishments may be prohibited. The first state licenses for adult-use cannabis business establishments are anticipated to be issued to organizations operating existing medical dispensaries, authorizing retail sales of adult-use cannabis at those locations starting January 1, 2020. Municipalities with medical dispensaries operating in their jurisdiction may limit or prohibit adult-use cannabis business establishments through local ordinances, but may want to consider adopting those provisions in order to provide those existing dispensaries clear direction in advance of any application. Linked here is the model ordinance: Municipal Cannabis Business Prohibition.)

— IVES puts on the gloves – SHIA KAPOS and ADRIENNE HURST

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former state Rep. JEANNE IVES, who waged a bitter challenge against then-Gov. Bruce Rauner in last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary, has thrown her hat in the ring for the 6th Congressional District. Ives’ bid to unseat Democrat Sean Casten assures fireworks. Republicans have identified the seat, which pulls from Chicago’s Western suburbs, as a battleground. Casten, and fellow freshman Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood, yanked their suburban seats from Republicans in 2018, and the GOP wants revenge. The GOP may have the perfect soldier in Ives, who isn’t afraid to get dirty in campaigning, but she first must face former Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti in the primary. That’s some delicious political irony given Sanguinetti was on Rauner’s ticket when Ives battled for governor. Rauner only eked out a victory in the primary before going on to lose to Democrat J.B. Pritzker in November. If turnout for the 2020 primary is low, she would have a natural advantage in the race against Sanguinetti — who still has little name recognition even after being Rauner’s No. 2. “Ives has a knack for Trumpy divisiveness that will serve her well in the Republican primary, but absolutely doom her in a general election because voters kicked out the last member of Congress for being too close to Trump,” Tom Bowen, a Democratic political strategist, told Playbook. In the 2018 primary, Ives drew the ire of Democrats and some Republicans alike for running an ad that was denounced as anti-immigrant, racist, sexist and transphobic. Casten may be well-prepared to face the likes of Ives, having gone through a tough cycle in 2018 when he unseated former GOP Rep. Peter Roskam in a contentious and high-profile race. This time, Casten has the advantage of being an incumbent in a district that’s veering left of its traditional GOP stronghold. Casten also isn’t afraid to duke it out in debates or on social media, which could make this race a fun one to watch. Ives’ entry into the 6th District race comes days after second quarter financial reports showed Sanguinetti raised just $103,647 — a paltry sum compared to the $700,000-plus Casten has raised.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— The limits and hurdles of issuing reparations for slavery America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners – Linda Chavez (DIERSEN: Affirmative Action (AA), Diversity, and Inclusion are reparations. Democrats and RINOs make Republicans pay the price of AA, Diversity, and Inclusion.)
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/jul/18/limits-and-hurdles-issuing-reparations-slavery/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The problem is that reparations today would punish individuals who committed no wrongs while possibly rewarding some who suffered no harm. Justice requires individual culpability, not collective guilt. A people cannot be held accountable for the actions of their forebears—that path leads to endless cycles of violence, even genocide. But aside from the injustice of punishing offspring for their ancestors’ crimes, properly distributing reparations would be a very messy ordeal. Proponents frequently point to Germany’s payment of more than $70 billion in restitution to Holocaust victims since 1952 — but those victims or their immediate heirs are identifiable, as are the Japanese Americans interned in camps during World War II, whom Congress authorized to receive compensation of $20,000 each in the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. But as a recent New York Times article suggests, defining who might be eligible and how much compensation would be owed is difficult at best. America today is not a nation made up primarily of descendants of slave owners and former slaves. Of the 325 million people residing here now, only a fraction can trace their ancestry back to anyone living in the United States in 1860, the last decennial census before the Civil War and Emancipation.)

They are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, or RINOs.)

ORCA STAR BANNER
— Faux outrage over Trump’s take on opposition research – Ed Rogers (DIERSEN: Needless-to-say, by reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, voters in my neighborhood, voters in my precinct, voters in Wheaton, voters in Milton Township, voters in DuPage County, and voters in Illinois can see how the Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party (IRP), Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois treats those like me who support the IRP platform. Previously, by reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, they could see how TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, and American Association of Political Consultants treated those like me who support the IRP platform.)
