— Best back-to-school cars under $12,000 – Robert Duffer  (DIERSEN: This article presupposes that parents are expected to buy cars for their children.  Did you expect your parents to buy cars for you?  I did not.  I soon as I was 16 years old in 1964, I bought a 1958 Chevy BelAir with money that I had saved delivering newspapers and doing yard work. Just before I graduated from Crete-Monee High School in 1966, I bought a new 1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint with money that I had saved washing dishes for the minimum wage in the basement of the S.S. Kresges in Chicago Heights.)

QUAD CITY TIMES
— Trump’s ideological test for immigrants is absurd – Cepeda  (DIERSEN: If you come to America illegally, if you stay in America illegally, and/or if you bring others to America illegally, you shout that you do not respect the rule of law.)
http://qctimes.com/news/opinion/editorial/columnists/esther-cepeda/cepeda-trump-s-ideological-test-for-immigrants-is-absurd/article_4e100bfb-53e4-5257-91e4-69e2ab68d9e1.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s not wrong to want to keep out those who would do us harm — we should absolutely be thinking about better screening. But restricting entry to only those who can traverse (or fake) an ideological purity quiz doesn’t even pass the smell test.)

DAILY ILLINI
— How to find the perfect RSO  Stay involved on campus by joining an RSO. – Vivienne Henning  (DIERSEN: Which RSOs promote dependency on government, LGBTQ activity, abortion, mass/illegal immigration, race and gender based preference giving, age discrimination, pot, booze, gambling, and other vices?  Which RSOs advocate getting rid of those who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors?)
http://dailyillini.com/special-sections/quad-day/2016/08/20/find-perfect-rso/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A key aspect of having a successful college experience is figuring out how to get involved. A sure-fire way to get yourself more acclimated to life on campus is to get involved with Registered Student Organizations (RSOs). Here are some methods to try and figure out what RSOs would be a good fit for you: Go off of what you know. If you were involved in high school — whether captain of the tennis team, editor of the yearbook or advocate for LGBT rights — and wish to continue following your passions in college, look for RSOs that can help sustain your drive. Or if there were clubs and activities that you were always itching to give a go at, go ahead and do so. The University’s wide variety of RSOs offers students a chance to get involved with nearly anything that piques their interests.)

 

BREITBART
— Morning Consult Poll Shows Hillary Clinton Barely Ahead of Donald Trump 39 to 36 in Four-Way Race – NEIL W. MCCABE  (DIERSEN: Of course, needless-to-say, anti-Trumps in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world want Trump to lose.  The fewer votes that Trump gets, the sooner that anti-Trumps will get rid of those who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.  If/when the anti-Trumps come to your door to get rid of you, how will you react?)

— Trump Campaign Sharply Increases Spending on Consultants  Records show a more than sixfold increase in July from June, to $10 million – REBECCA BALLHAUS  (DIERSEN: What do you say to political consultants who falsely claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican?  How many of them has Trump hired, how much money has he given them, how much money is he giving them, and how much money will he give them?  Of course, these “political consultants” are Democrat plants, Libertarian plants, Green plants, RINOs, or even worse things.  They are anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)

WEST HAWAII TODAY
— Couple feels targeted after Trump signs repeatedly stolen – Cameron Miculka  (DIERSEN: If you put a Trump/Pence sign in your front yard, how fast would it be stolen or vandalized?  Anti-Trumps are moral relativists who believe that their end justifies their means. They are disciples of Saul Alinsky.  Anti-Trumps respect the rule of law only when they can use it to screw others.  The fewer votes that Trump gets in the November 8, 2016 election, the sooner that anti-Trumps will get rid of you.  Who are the leading anti-Trumps in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world?  How fast will they get rid of you?)
