— Illinois Delegation Faces Full Schedule on Wednesday – Paris Schutz  (DIERSEN: Are you a Republican Precinct Committeeman/Captain in Illinois?  How happy are you with what the following have done to keep you up to date with what the Illinois delegation has done, is doing, and will do at the convention: a) the Illinois Republican Party (IRP), b) your representative on the IRP State Central Committee, c) your Republican county party organization, and d) your Republican township/ward party organization?  What emails have you received from the aforesaid about the convention?  What have the aforesaid posted on their websites about the convention?  Constructively, by their default, by their failure to communicate, the aforesaid have appointed me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to fill that void, to communicate for them.  Of course, needless-to-say, I am greatly honored.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: California Congressman Darrell Issa is scheduled to speak before the delegation. Issa is one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal critics and has referred to her as a “criminal involved in a criminal enterprise.”  Delegates will also hear from Illinois Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and John Shimkus. The delegation is later scheduled to attend a dinner event honoring Republican Illinois Senate Leader Christine Radogno and Illinois House Leader Jim Durkin, before heading to the Quicken Loans Arena for night three of the Republican National Convention. Wednesday’s theme is “make America first again.” Headlining speakers, according to the official convention program, include U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and presumptive vice president candidate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.)

http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/aldermen-sign-off-on-4-72m-in-police-abuse-settlements/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With frustration and resignation, the City Council’s Finance Committee on Tuesday signed off on three more police misconduct settlements totaling $4.72 million, including the last of 25 lawsuits stemming from the dirty work of former Special Operations Section kingpin Jerome Finnigan. The settlements bring this year’s total to $18.6 million and the tab for settling police abuse cases over the last decade to well over $500 million. The largest of the three settlements, for $3.75 million, will go to the three teenage children of Esau Castellanos-Bernal. The intoxicated man was fatally shot by police after crashing his car in 2013. The case involves an alleged cover-up by Chicago Police officers. It’s the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and the soon-to-be-disbanded Independent Police Review Authority.)

Kinzinger hasn’t been the most enthusiastic lawmaker toward Trump in recent months, so his speech could give the delegation something to talk about.)

http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/twin-city-delegates-report-from-gop-convention/article_f5cfaf67-e32b-5284-bba6-8f1a53fb1cd0.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Chris Gramm was surprised to be a center of attention after the first day of the Republican National Convention.  Gramm, a Bloomington resident and presidential delegate from Illinois’ 18th Congressional District, appeared on the front page of an early edition of The New York Times after stepping up to represent delegates opposed to presumed candidate Donald Trump. Gramm, who was elected during the March 15 primary election as a delegate for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, was pictured shouting Monday for a roll call vote of states on the convention rules — a vote meant to embarrass Trump. “I want to make the establishment know there are people that won’t just lay down for whatever they want, and I’m happy to be the face of that movement,” he said. Later editions of Tuesday’s Times featured a front-page photo of prospective First Lady Melania Trump, who gave a headline speech Monday night. Gramm and fellow delegate Jim Fisher, a Hudson resident, told The Pantagraph on Tuesday about their experiences so far:)

NEW YORK TIMES
— How Melania Trump’s Speech Veered Off Course and Caused an Uproar – MAGGIE HABERMAN and MICHAEL BARBARO
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/20/us/politics/melania-trump-convention-speech.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The speechwriters, Matthew Scully and John McConnell, sent Ms. Trump a draft last month, eager for her approval. Weeks went by. They heard nothing. Inside Trump Tower, it turned out, Ms. Trump had decided she was uncomfortable with the text, and began tearing it apart, leaving a small fraction of the original. Her quiet plan to wrest the speech away and make it her own set in motion the most embarrassing moment of the convention: word-for-word repetition of phrases and borrowed themes from Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic convention eight years ago. The ridicule from both Democrats and Republicans was instant and relentless, disrupting what was meant to be a high point of the convention. It was, by all accounts, an entirely preventable blunder, committed in front of an audience of 23 million television viewers, that exposed the weaknesses of an organization that has long spurned the safeguards of a modern presidential campaign, such as the free software that detects plagiarism. “It just shouldn’t have happened,” said Matt Latimer, a White House speechwriter for President George W. Bush. “This was an easy home run speech: a successful, attractive immigrant talking about her husband.” Nobody seemed more startled than Mr. and Ms. Trump, who arrived in New York on Tuesday morning after a flight from Cleveland to find themselves at the center of a bizarre uproar over authenticity, plagiarism and a knotty question: Why did the wife of the Republican nominee borrow passages from the wife of the current Democratic president? Ms. Trump spent most of Tuesday out of sight, while her husband vented his frustration and anger throughout the day. This account of how a speech written by professionals was transformed into the problematic version delivered on Monday night at the Quicken Loans Arena is based on interviews with more than a dozen people involved in and close to the Trump campaign. Many of them spoke on the condition of anonymity to disclose details that were supposed to remain confidential. It reinforces dominant themes of Mr. Trump’s campaign that still linger from the primary, which his team has struggled to change: a deliberately bare-bones campaign structure, a slapdash style and a reliance on the instincts of the candidate over the judgments of experienced political experts, like Mr. Scully and Mr. McConnell. The two original speechwriters were not aware of how significantly the speech had been changed until they saw Ms. Trump deliver it on television Monday night, along with the rest of the country. In the prime-time address, Ms. Trump unfurled a sequence of life lessons — about how “your word is your bond,” about “your dreams and your willingness to work for them,” and the “integrity, passion and intelligence” of her parents — in the same sequence and using much of the same language that Mrs. Obama employed in 2008. Just like Mrs. Obama, Ms. Trump explained how she wanted to pass those lessons on to her children and the children of the world. And just like Mrs. Obama, she offered a gauzy invocation about the limitlessness of aspirations when they are matched by determination. In a series of evolving explanations, Trump aides and allies dismissed the episode as a trivial distraction, alternating between outright denial that Ms. Trump’s speech had used word-for-word phrases from Mrs. Obama and blaming the news media. “Ninety-three percent of the speech is completely different,” declared Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey. Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman, pegged the number of suspicious words at 50. “And that includes ‘ands’ and ‘thes’ and things like that,” he said on Tuesday. Across the country, slack-jawed Republican political operatives and speechwriters expressed expletive-laden bewilderment at the organizational breakdown allowing such an episode to occur. “It’s like some guy trying to paddle across a river in a rowboat who shoots a hole in his boat,” said Stuart Stevens, who wrote speeches for Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, throughout the 2012 campaign.)

— Senator Ted Cruz Still Has a Plan and He’s Only 45 Years Old – Sasha Issenberg and Steven Yaccino  (DIERSEN: What plans have you had?  GAO audits IRS. In 1980, when I was 31 years old, I transferred from IRS to GAO.  My plan was to get assigned to audits of IRS so that I could use the knowledge of IRS that I had gained by working for IRS for almost 9 years, the last 5 1/2 years of which at the GS-12 level (currently $77,899-$88,286). But my Democrat GAO superiors and Democrat GAO supervisors had great success in killing my plan.  During the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO 1980-1997, I succeeded in getting assigned to audits of IRS for only 3 years (1986-1988).  Audits of IRS are/were preferred assignments that were to be given only to GAO employees who were Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran.  The Democrats who ran GAO wasted my knowledge of IRS, wasted my career, and forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

— “The Most Hated Campaign Operative in America” Just Joined the Trump Team  Nick Ayers has a long history of rubbing fellow politicos the wrong way—and using dark money to demolish opponents. – RUSS CHOMA  (DIERSEN: I should write a book about the most hated campaign operatives in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.  It would be great if I could get them all to show up at the same time at the Wheaton Bowl Banquet Hall.  They could tell their stories of how they demolished me and of how they demolished many others.  They talk and act like the WILL DO ANYTHING FOR MONEY.  They talk and act like they work for whoever GIVES THEM THE MOST MONEY.  They talk and act like they only work for those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.  It would be great if they would disclose those who have paid them to do their dirty work.)
