— FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD WITH FOUR COLOR PICTURES: DIERSEN HEADLINE: The Daily Herald hints/implies/argues/shouts that it does NOT want municipalities like Wheaton and counties like DuPage to ban the sale of pot. Who is taking the lead to stop the sale of pot a) in your municipality and b) in the unincorporated areas of your county? All of the following should be lining up to speak out against pot at public hearings: Republican activists, Republican candidates, Republican elected officials, Republican party leaders, Republican major donors, Republican political consultants, business leaders, religious leaders, healthcare leaders, education leaders, law enforcement leaders, etc.
— DISGUSTING, TRAGIC: Chambers of commerce largely staying silent on marijuana sales – Marie Wilson (DIERSEN: Chambers of Commerce, including the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, should be taking the lead in stopping the sale of pot.)


— Marijuana Damages Young Brains States that legalize it should set a minimum age of 25 or older. – Kenneth L. Davis and Mary Jeanne Kreek
— Older Workers, Looking for a Job, Finding Bias (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) the want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination. Ever-increasingly, they hint/imply/argue/shout that you are a disgusting loser like me and even worse things if you are not making at least $100,000/year by age 25, $200,000/year by age 30, $400,000 by age 35, $800,000/year by age 40, etc.)

— Pritzker, Cassidy and Bush Celebrate Baby Snuff Bill – Laurie Higgins 

— CELEBRATE, DON’T MOURN, THE DECLINE OF PUBLIC TRANSIT (DIERSEN: Have you used public transit to get to/from work and/or school? I did in 1971, 1973, 1974, and 1978-1997. I should write a book my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, and in DuPage County who have never used public transit to get to/from work and/or school. Many of them would never stoop to taking public transit.)

In my precinct, a) Trump got only 137 votes in the 2016 general election while Clinton got 211 and b) Trump got only 21 votes in the 2016 Republican primary while Kasich got 93.

— Trump: Americans ‘Demanding Sanctuary Cities Be Gone’ – Eric Mack

— Is It Illegal To Accept Oppo Research From Foreigners?

They include past and present Milton Township Republican Central Committee, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, Illinois leaders, members, employees, residents, etc. I would focus on those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican.)
— Illegal Aliens Sue Border Patrol. The Lawsuit’s Outcome Can Have Massive Implications. – Beth Baumann (DIERSEN: Democrats and RINOs have given illegal aliens “jury appeal.” Because of their demographics (minority, female, younger, have financial problems, have health problems, lack education, and/or lack job skills), juries are far more likely to rule in favor of illegal aliens. Because of the Democrats and the RINOs, the worst possible demographics to have include: Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, non-poor, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and if your ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

— He didn’t have a computer growing up. Now he’s CEO of Google – Kaya Yurieff (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs glorify, praise, and promote those who are or were citizens of foreign countries.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pichai wouldn’t own a dedicated computer until he moved to the United States and attended Stanford University on a scholarship. But then the rest was history. He graduated from Stanford with a master’s in engineering and later went on to get an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Pichai worked at Applied Materials and McKinsey before joining Google in 2004. There, he held a variety of roles, including overseeing Chrome, product chief of Google and head of the Android operating system. He became CEO in 2015. When asked if he believes the American dream is still alive, Pichai said he still thinks America is a “land of opportunity.” “I still think that’s true today,” he said. “But I think we need to work hard to make sure it is true.” A big part of that is ensuring immigrants have a path to succeed. Pichai has called on Congress to protect Dreamers and has advocated for high-skilled immigration.)

— Does the Dream and Promise Act give green cards to gang members? – Salvador Rizzo (DIERSEN: Are/were you a member of a gang? The operatives and the dupes who work for my critics/opponents proudly crow that they are “team players.” They make it extremely clear that they have, that they can, and that they will destroy any individual and any organization that their leaders tell them to. They stress that I am no longer a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member, GAO employee, etc. They stress that they almost got ICRC to censor me in 2006 for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They stress that they got MTRCC to crush me when I ran for MTRCC Treasurer in 2004.)

In September of 1972 when I was 24 years old, my down payment money came from what I had earned a) working full-time for IRS for the previous 15 months, b) working part-time for Firestone Stores for the previous 18 months, and c) working full-time for Firestone Stores for 7 months before that.) 

— Seniors were sold a risk-free retirement with reverse mortgages. Now they face foreclosure. Urban African American neighborhoods are hardest hit as nearly 100,000 loans have failed. – Nick Penzenstadler and Jeff Kelly Lowenstein (DIERSEN: In your neighborhood, in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, and in your county, how fast are a) home values decreasing and b) real estate taxes increasing?)

— As insulin costs soar, American diabetics drive to Canada – Emily Rauhala (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are nasty. If I sought a government office or a political office, they would hint/imply/argue/shout that I brought on my type 2 diabetes by my spending 10+ hours each and every day putting GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and sending them out instead of exercising.)

— Sarah Sanders and Melania T are true role models Lefties are ‘pro-women’ phonies – ADRIANA COHEN

— Ice cream social puts sweet touch to Clarkdale July 4 fun (DIERSEN: Milton Township Republican Precinct Committeemen have been encouraged to arrange ice cream socials in their precincts. On July 5, 2003, John Cox, the recent Republican gubernatorial candidate in California, came with the other four announced U.S. Senate candidates (Chirinjeev Kathuria, Andy McKenna, Jim Oberweis, and Jack Ryan) to a picnic that I arranged in the Prairie Path Park in my precinct for voters in my precinct, in Jeanne Ive’s precinct to the east, and in Debra Olson’s precinct to the west. At my suggestion, Cox brought Jay’s Potato Chips. The 200 attendees included Randy Hultgren.)

— Census: 60 Percent of American Men are Fathers – Barbie Latza Nadeau (DIERSEN: Government is nasty. Politics is nasty. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes are nasty. They use the fact that my wife and I gave up trying to have children, that we did not adopt, and that we did not become foster parents against me. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.)

— Is marriage dead? – Jesse Robison (DIERSEN: To promote LGBTQ activity is to kill traditional marriage and to kill the traditional family.)

— JANUARY 20, 2017 FLASHBACK: SECRET FACEBOOK GROUPS ARE THE TRUMP ERA’S WORST, BEST ECHO CHAMBER – MILY DREYFUSS (DIERSEN: If the Trump-haters held a rally in your precinct, how many would attend? In my precinct, a) Trump got only 137 votes in the 2016 general election while Clinton got 211 and b) Trump got only 21 votes in the 2016 Republican primary while Kasich got 93. I should write a book about the Trump-haters in my precinct and their secret Facebook group.)

— Research Tells Us More About Getting People to Pay For Online News – Matt DeRienzo (DIERSEN: What makes your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes furious? My having the time (10+ hours each and every day) and the money (many thousands of dollars each year) necessary to put GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails together and to send them out free of charge each and every morning and evening without any advertising makes my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes furious. GOPUSA ILLINOIS email subscriptions are worth at least $1,000/year. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes.) 

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, the more that you do to encourage illegal immigration, the more that Trump-haters glorify you and praise you.
