— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Kinzinger promotes Cheney. Who will hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters focus on destroying first? From what I see, first, they will focus on destroying Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members who do not hate Trump. They will focus on those IRP SCC members who have the heaviest weighted vote. Then, second, the officers of Republican county party organizations who do not hate Trump. They will focus on officers in counties that have the most Republican voters. Then, third, the officers of Republican township/ward party organizations who do not hate Trump. The will focus on officers in townships/wards that have the most Republican voters. Then, fourth, Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains who do not hate Trump. They will focus on Republican Precinct Committeemen/Captains in precincts that have the most Republican voters. But beyond the aforesaid, of course, hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters will focus on destroying those Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, major donors, political consultants, reporters, journalists, etc. who have the greatest impact in Illinois. Of course, I will report everything that hate-filled Trump-hating Kinzinger-promoters do a) to destroy me, b) to destroy my GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters , and c) to destroy those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.

(DIERSEN: What will DeSantis say to those who say that the only jobs available are bad jobs? According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, all the jobs that I had were bad jobs that they would never stoop to take.  I did yard work and delivered newspapers 1962-1964; washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires, automotive services, and major appliances 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)

— GOP delegates in Virginia to choose nominee for governor – AP
(DIERSEN: In Illinois, what if elected Republican township, ward, and precinct committeemen, instead of Republican primary voters, chose the party’s candidates?)
https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20210508/news/305089915/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Tens of thousands of Virginia Republicans, sometimes waiting in long lines of cars, cast ballots Saturday to choose nominees for governor and other statewide offices at a drive-thru nominating convention. The Republican Party held what it’s calling an ‘unassembled convention’ on Saturday to select its nominees in this year’s race for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Republicans haven’t won a statewide race in Virginia since 2009. Because pandemic restrictions ban mass gatherings, delegates are casting ballots at nearly 40 polling sites across the state. More than 53,000 Virginians successfully pre-registered as delegates. GOP officials rejected applications from roughly 700 would-be delegates. Virginia is the only state with an open-seat gubernatorial contest this year, and the race will be closely watched as an early indicator of party strength heading into the 2022 congressional elections.)

A fireworks display is set for July 3 at Graf Park, 1855 Manchester Rd. at dusk. The park district website notes that there will be no carnival rides, DJ music or other onsite activities. Residents are also advised to leave their pets at home due to the loud sounds of fireworks and potentially big crowds of people in attendance. Wheaton’s Fourth of July Parade is slated for July 4, though details about the parade time and route are still pending. No candy or other items will be passed out during the parade and those in attendance will be required to wear face masks if they are not from the same household and cannot maintain six feet of social distance. The Wheaton Park District did not immediately respond to Patch’s request for more information Wednesday morning.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Aten, executive director of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute at Wheaton College, began to urge his fellow evangelicals to get vaccinated, however, things got ugly. “How’s your Monday going?” he tweeted on April 27. “Mine started with having to file a police report in response to the increasing number of threats I’m getting for encouraging white evangelicals to get vaccinated against COVID-19.” Aten, who teaches at an evangelical college and identifies as an evangelical, told Religion News Service he’d filed a report with the sheriff’s office in DuPage County, Illinois, where he lives, after getting an email claiming his work on vaccines was “punishable by death.” The email was part of a pattern of emails and calls from people angry about Aten’s work helping Christian groups and churches respond to the COVID-19 vaccine. The threats intensified after he spoke to The New York Times about the need for evangelicals to be vaccinated.)
