CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “Keep an eye on Trump fanatics.”  Anti-Trumps run Illinois. Anti-Trumps run Cook County.  Anti-Trumps run Chicago.  Anti-Trumps run etc.  Ever-increasingly, anti-Trumps make it clear that they are going to get rid of all Trump supporters. What will they do first?  Stop hiring Trump supporters? Fire Trump supporters? Refuse to do business with Trump supporters?  Force Trump supporters to wear “Make America Great Again” caps to identify them so that they can be harassed, threatened, beat up, or killed?  Will anti-Trumps get illegals, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, RINOs, Muslims, Mexicans, Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, women, young people, LGBTQ people, poor people, recent immigrants, union members, members of the paid news media, stoners, criminals, and members of other oppressed groups to threaten, to beat up, or to kill Trump supporters?)

DECATUR DAILY
— Popularity contest with Trump – Milbank (DIERSEN: What would my critics/opponents say to Trump about me and about my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails? Would they stress that only 137 in my precinct voted for Trump, while 211 voted for Clinton?  Would they provide Trump with a list of those who have worked the hardest to stop me from sending out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and to stop everyone from reading those emails?  Would they provide Trump with a list of all those who read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, but who fail/refuse to return my phone calls?  Would they drag out all those who I have sued and/or who I might sue?  Would they provide Trump with a list of all those “Republican” activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. who do not want me to know about their events or other activities, do not want me to promote their events or other activities, do not want me to attend their events, and who do not want me to report on their events?  Would they stress all the links to articles that are critical of Trump that I have included in GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?  Would they stress that I am no longer the TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, a Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, the Milton Township Republican Central Committee webmaster, an Illinois Center Right Coalition Steering Committee member, an American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member, a GAO employee, etc.?)
http://www.decaturdaily.com/opinion/columnists/popularity-contest-with-trump/article_e8fd4557-c5a4-5aa4-a9a0-95edb4d440e5.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Journalists need to recognize we’re not going to win a popularity contest with Trump, and we shouldn’t try. Trump is not going to be appeased by friendlier coverage. He campaigned against the media, and he will continue to use the media as a foil. His party controls Congress, and conservatives will soon control the Supreme Court. If he can discredit the media, he’ll remove another check to his power. Our third president, Thomas Jefferson, famously remarked that “were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” Our 45th president would clearly prefer the former. He has shut out news organizations, including The Post, whose coverage he dislikes. He has threatened to restrict First Amendment press freedoms. Pursuing public affection is a fool’s errand. The profession was never held in high public esteem. And the recent decline in approval is due entirely to Trump’s bashing.)
