MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL

— Mike Pence: Donald Trump to bring conservative leadership to White House – Bill Glauber and Hannah Schwarz  (DIERSEN: Have the following invited Pence to speak in Illinois: Kirk, Rauner, Sanguinnetti, Munger, Schneider, Durkin, Radogno, your representative on the Illinois Republican State Central Committee, the chairman of your Republican county party organization, the chairman of your Republican township/ward party organization, etc.?  If not, why not?  Of course, needless-to-say, if I was still the chairman of TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, I would have invited Pence to speak at a TAPROOT event.  Of course, needless-to-say, if you got elected or appointed to a government or political office as a Republican, and you are not going to help elect Trump/Pence, you should immediately resign.) 

http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/mike-pence-tells-waukesha-republicans-donald-trump-is-on-their-side-b99769346z1-388493101.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Making his first solo appearance of the national campaign, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence swooped into Wisconsin’s GOP heartland to assure supporters that presidential candidate Donald Trump will bring conservative leadership to the White House. “Having the opportunity to know this good man, I truly believe this builder, this patriot, this fighter is going to make America great again,” Pence said. The Indiana governor joked that he was a “B-List Republican celebrity.” But as a social and fiscal conservative, he was dispatched to a part of Wisconsin that decisively rejected Trump during the April primary but which is key to Republican hopes of winning the state in the fall.)

WASHINGTON TIMES

— Challenges to sensible voter ID laws threaten confidence in the elections – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Those who are in America illegally use false identifications.  How many millions of them use those false identifications to vote for Democrats?) 

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/27/challenges-to-voter-id-laws-threaten-ballot-box-co/

(FROM THE EDITORIAL: Party conventions, first of the Republicans in Cleveland and this week of the Democrats in Philadelphia, first and foremost are about whose name goes on the top of the ballot. Before any votes are cast on Nov. 8, though, questions must be settled about identification rules determining who gets to cast a ballot. Voter identification laws, popularly called ID laws, have proliferated. Proponents say they prevent voter fraud. Opponents argue that the laws prevent minority voters from casting a ballot. Judges have been overturning them. In an age when hackers halfway around the world steal millions of identification records in the blink of an eye, the idea that no one should have to show who he says he is so he can vote, is silly.)
