CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Mike Madigan: Democrats not involved in Ron Sandack cyber attacks – Tina Sfondeles and Chris Fusco  (DIERSEN: According to this article, Rauner said Tuesday “I heard about it yesterday morning.”  If Rauner read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, he would have learned about it Sunday evening at about 9:15 PM when the GOPUSA ILLINOIS Special Edition hit subscribers’ inboxes.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/madigan-democrats-not-involved-ron-sandack-cyberattacks/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: He’s known for his political brinksmanship, but House Speaker Mike Madigan said Wednesday he has no idea why Republican state Rep. Ronald L. Sandack — a top ally of Madigan’s nemesis, Gov. Bruce Rauner — abruptly resigned over the weekend. Asked Wednesday morning at a Democratic National Convention breakfast whether Democrats had any role in the cyber attacks that Sandack had cited in resigning, the Southwest Side Democrat replied “No. . . . I’ll let Sandack speak to what his problem is. I don’t know anything about it.” Sandack had been facing a challenge from Democrat Greg Hose in the November election — a race that might now be more winnable for Democrats with the much better-known Sandack off the ballot. “Again, I’d leave it up to Sandack to explain his problems,” Madigan said. Sandack issued a statement to the Capitol Fax political blog on Sunday saying that “cyber security issues” forced him to re-evaluate his “continued public service” and that he was resigning immediately. . .After declining to comment about Sandack on Monday, Rauner said Tuesday that he had no advance warning that Sandack had planned to resign. The governor’s statement only raised more intrigue about Sandack’s decision, as Sandack was one of Rauner’s most vocal advocates in the Legislature. “I really can’t comment much on Mr. Sandack’s situation,” Rauner told reporters after an event in downstate Auburn. “I heard about it yesterday morning, the same time I think most of you did. I’m not sure what all is going on there.”)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Illinois Republicans move to get two Kirk opponents knocked off ballot – Rick Pearson
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-mark-kirk-libertarian-opponent-ballot-challenge-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Mindful of the adage that every vote counts, Illinois Republicans are trying to knock off the ballot two candidates seeking the U.S. Senate seat now held by first-term GOP Sen. Mark Kirk. Objections were filed this month against perennial candidate Chad Koppie of Gilberts and Eric Conklin of Le Roy. Koppie is running under the Constitution Party banner while Conklin filed as an independent. The objections were filed by Michael Bigger, the Republican state central committeeman for the 18th Congressional District and Stark County Republican chairman. He was appointed last fall by Gov. Bruce Rauner to be a member of the Illinois Human Rights Commission.)

DAILY HERALD
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: In a front page top of fold editorial unethically made to look like a news article, the Daily Herald calls for pay and benefits for Illinois legislators to be dramatically reduced.  The editorial stresses that Radogno received $129,247 in salary, stipends, health benefits, per diem and travel, and pension costs.  If the Daily Herald were to publish an editorial calling for federal pay and benefits to be dramatically cut, it might stress that 1997 in today’s dollars, GAO paid me $120,427 in salary plus benefits.)

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160727/news/307279980/
— Glass ceiling shattered – AP  (DIERSEN: I should write a book about women in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois who focus on destroying me because I support the right to life and equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving) planks in the Republican Party platform.  These women blame me for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems.  These women are involved in government and/or in politics to get rid of men, and especially men who are Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, older, rich, gun owners, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)
http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20160727/news/307279977/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “We just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet,” a smiling Clinton declared as she made a surprise appearance on video at night’s end, to the roar of delegates. “This is really your victory,” she said, predicting that many more women will be nominated for president — and elected. Clinton’s long political resume – secretary of state, senator, first lady – has sometimes obscured the historic nature of her candidacy. Her supporters noted that Clinton’s achievement came nearly a century after women gained the right to vote in 1920. Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski nominated Clinton, saying she was acting on behalf of “all women who have broken down barriers for others.” Mikulski was the first Democratic woman to be elected to the Senate in her own right.)

— Liberals should practice the tolerance they preach – NICK REDONDO, Friendship
http://www.post-gazette.com/opinion/letters/2016/07/27/Liberals-should-practice-the-tolerance-they-preach/stories/201607270118
(FROM THE LETTER: I never realized that as a conservative Republican, Christian, white male and veteran what a horrible hate-filled racist, xenophobic, misogynist and all-around horrible person I am. Thanks to Rob Rogers’ July 21 cartoon and Oren Spiegler’s July 21 letter (“Republicans Should Regret Their Nominee Choice”), I now know that Republicans are racists, bigots and intolerant. I now realize how tolerant liberals are. I could definitely feel the love. To a liberal, compassion is when the government forcibly takes someone’s hard-earned money to give to someone else who didn’t earn it so that the government can create a culture of dependency and rob people of the joy of being self-reliant and free to determine their own future — thus stealing that person’s dignity. And that is what a liberal calls compassion? To a conservative, compassion is giving of one’s self, time, heart and money to help our fellow man. Gentlemen, please don’t pretend to know what is in my heart. I wonder if they have ever really been exposed to the disaster created by liberal government social programs. Please don’t try to clear your conscience by diminishing others who hold a different opinion and experience than yours. Practice tolerance!)

Yet watching the first night of the Democrat National Convention felt like it was 1964 all over again. While Michelle Obama declared in her speech “when they aim low, we aim high,” Democrats pulled the entire deck of ugly race cards all night long. Then like now, Democrats stoked racial division to win votes and political power in America over the last half century. The only difference was then there was a white Democrat president. In 2016, we have a black Democrat president. Listening to Sen. Cory Booker yell that it was time for Americans “to rise up,” one wouldn’t think we had elected a black leader almost eight years ago. The night’s theme was how racially divided America has become — curiously, under the first black president. Between the boos yelled by Bernie Sanders supporters, it felt like riots might erupt at any minute on the convention floor as Sen. Elizabeth Warren ranted that Donald Trump was campaigning to divide America based on race, religion and gender. “But ask yourself this. When white workers in Ohio are pitted against black workers in North Carolina, or Latino workers in Florida, who really benefits?” Warren said. Democrats benefit from identity politics, not Republicans. It’s the classic playbook that Barack Obama used. In 2008 and 2012, Obama played the race card and won with historic levels of black voter turnout. And he’s used race throughout his entire presidency as a political weapon. So there’s no surprise that according to the Washington Post, more than 6 in 10 adults say race relations in the U.S. are bad. That’s 63% compared with 48% earlier this year. It’s probably not helpful when you have the first Black president of America praising black lives and blasting blue (police officer) and white lives. But blacks who voted for Obama at rates approaching nearly 100% have been left with nothing but higher unemployment, crime and less prosperity than whites. So, it was no surprise that Michelle Obama gave a fantastic speech Monday at the DNC in Philadelphia, stoking the rage of racial division that swept her husband into office. “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters — and all our sons and daughters — now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.” Curiously, Michelle didn’t mention that while her black daughters were on the White House lawn playing, her husband was inside plotting ways to exploit race to win battles. He blamed his inability to negotiate and cut deals with a GOP Congress on his race and rushed to defend black men killed by cops before the facts were in. In addition to making amends with Hillary in Philadelphia, Michelle should have praised her husband for being an example to her daughters and kids everywhere that blacks are truly equal. But talk of equality does drive Democrats to the polls today. White president Lyndon B. Johnson and black president Obama are both Democrats who capitalized on race to win. And to borrow from Michelle’s words, “that is the kind of president that Hillary Clinton will be.”)

— Another Chance for Feds to Say How They Really Feel About How They Are Being Treated – Charles S.

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Merit Systems Protection Board on Tuesday announced that it is inviting federal employees and managers to begin completing the latest of its surveys on issues such as whether workers are being treated fairly, and recruitment and retention. The Web-based Merit Principles Survey will go out to 25 major agencies and departments, and 120,000 employees will be invited to complete it over the next four weeks. It is narrower in scope, smaller in sampling size and less frequent than the Office of Personnel Management’s annual Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. Voluntary and confidential, the MSPB questionnaire focuses on merit system principles and human resources policy and practice, the MSPB said in a release. The 2016 version of the statutorily required survey will inquire about “employee engagement, fair treatment and nondiscrimination, recruitment and retention, sexual and non-sexual harassment, HR services and addressing poor performance,” the board said. MSPB asked employee unions to encourage participation. To minimize burdens, MSPB will administer three versions of the questionnaire, each focused on a portion of the larger topics. Results and subsequent recommendations will go to “the president, Congress, and other federal decision-makers to promote merit-based and effective human resources policies and practices,” the board announced. A 2013 version of the survey found that more than a quarter of federal employees believed their supervisors demonstrated favoritism.)
