GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— In 2018, which Republican candidates are going to run for federal, state, and county offices in DuPage County?  Who does Rauner want to run for Attorney General, Comptroller, Secretary of State, and Treasurer?  I urge all of them to have an entry in Wheaton’s 2017 Independence Day Parade.  SEE:
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2017-independence-day-celebration-parade-entry-tickets-31882733113  So far, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee and James Mendrick for DuPage County Sheriff have entries.  Since I moved to Wheaton in 1978, I have encouraged Republican candidates and elected officials to have entries in Wheaton’s Independence Day Parades.  This year, for the 12th year in a row, I will be seeking donations from Republicans so that “DuPage Republicans” can again be one of the two $2,500 “Star” sponsors and again sponsor the Wheaton high school bands and the Tunes of Glory Pipes and Drums parade entries.  Being a $2,500 “Star” sponsor includes: “Media Print Advertisements, Social Media Promotion, Website Preference, Email Blasts, Event Posters/Flyers, Press Release, 10×10 Booth on July 3, Inclusion in Announcements on July 3, Premium Seating at Graf Park for July 3 Fireworks, Event Sponsor Banners,” and more.  Outstandingly, again this year Tim Whelan will coordinate Republican use of the 10×10 booth at the fireworks.  This year again, I will hand deliver a flyer to the residences and businesses on the parade route that will list the Republican entries in the parade and the Republicans who helped sponsor entries. So far, outstandingly, Roger Claar has pledged $500, Chris Nybo $250, and Peter Breen, Grant Eckhoff, Amy Grant, Gwen Henry, and Tim Whelan $100.  Last year, outstandingly, Chris Nybo contributed $250; Liam Brennan, Dave Diersen, and Phil Suess contributed $150; and Bob Berlin, Peter Breen, Fred Bucholz, Mike Connelly, Tim Elliott, Amy Grant, Jeanne Ives, Rich Jorgensen, Chris Kachiroubas, Mark Kirk, Brian Krajewski, Robert Lyon, James Mendrick, Deanne Mazzochi, Peter Roskam, Darlene Ruscitti, Tim Whelan, and Jim Zay contributed $100. – Dave Diersen

— Conflicting narratives emerge about Comey’s firing – RANDI BELISOMO  (DIERSEN: What conflicting narratives exist about you?  Conflicting narratives exist about why I took my Democrat GAO superiors’ early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old.  According to my Democrat GAO superiors, they did absolutely nothing to encourage me to take their “offer.”  According to me, they made it clear to me that they would kill me figuratively, if not literally, if I did not take their “offer.” They hinted that they might let me work another 6 years until I was 55 if I happily agreed to be constructively demoted and work for my subordinates who had far less work experience, education, professional certifications, and professional licenses or b) be transferred to another work group where everything that I had learned auditing federal financial institutions for 9 years and earning a master’s degree that year from IIT in financial markets and trading WOULD GO TO WASTE. They made it clear to me that they would kill me figuratively, if not literally, if I did not take their “offer.”  Of course, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes side with my Democrat GAO superiors against me.)

— Illinois Democrats want independent probe following Comey firing; Republicans want answers – Katherine Skiba  (DIERSEN: What adverse actions did your employers take against you and who came to your defense? Democrats and Democrat plants, Libertarians and Libertarian plants, Greens and Green plants, and RINOs did NOT come to my defense a) when my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, did not promote me beyond GS-13, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take an $18,847 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, b) when my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974, and c) when my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-james-comey-illinois-delegation-met-0511-20170510-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic lawmakers from Illinois joined in their party’s widespread condemnation of President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, and some state Republican members of Congress said they were looking for more answers after the surprise move. U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley of Chicago called Comey’s dismissal a “brazen decision taken straight out of the Nixon playbook,” referring to former President Richard Nixon’s 1973 firing of Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor probing his conduct during Watergate. Quigley is on the House Intelligence Committee, which is looking into whether Trump’s associates coordinated with Russians to tamper with the presidential election.)
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps treasonably a) encourage people to come to America illegally, b) encourage people to stay in America illegally, and c) encourage people to bring other people to America illegally.

— Nobody fooled by Trump’s excuse for firing James Comey – Editorial  (DIERSEN: Constructively, being forced to retire is the same as being fired.  QUESTION: What excuses did my Democrat GAO superiors have to fire me in 1997? ANSWER: Since 1988, I had been an active member in a class action lawsuit that charged GAO with reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.  I had always complained about patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, age discrimination, and retaliation.  I was an old (49) non-veteran White male who had always been a conservative Republican. Employees in the office who were liberal, Democrat, minority, female, and/or younger talked and acted like they would leave GAO if GAO did not rid of its employees who were conservative, Republican, White, male, and/or older. Diersen could and would be used as an “example” to send a “message” to everyone a) that GAO gives tremendous preference to its employees who are liberal, Democrat, minority, female, younger, and/or veteran and b) that GAO does everything that it can to not hire and to get rid of its employees who are conservative, Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)

DAILY HERALD
— Election commission good for Lake, not for DuPage? – Kerry Lester
http://www.dailyherald.com/news/20170511/lester-election-commission-good-for-lake-not-for-dupage
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A bill to merge the DuPage Election Commission with the DuPage County clerk’s office is being crafted by Republican state Rep. Chris Nybo of Elmhurst and Democratic state Sen. Don Harmon of Oak Park. Just four years ago, Harmon was the lead sponsor of a bill to do exactly the opposite in Lake County. His legislation creating a Lake County Election Commission was widely criticized by local officials and eventually overturned in court. This time, Nybo says, DuPage County Chair Dan Cronin and the county board back the change. The bill passed the Senate unanimously last week and is now in the House.)
