— President Trump’s Weekly Address; Democrats’ Weekly Address


— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps glorify and praise those who were illegally brought to America illegally and those who illegally brought them to America illegally.
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: From what I see, anti-Trumps are overjoyed when members of the following groups leave Chicago: Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German Americans, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.
— Man calls 911 after downtown Naperville bar refuses to let him in, police say – Bill Bird

— Kane County Board likely to consider job cuts to balance budget – James Fuller
— Car-centric Houston struggles after loss of countless autos – AP


— Cook County Sheriff Disciplines 48 Officers For Time Fraud – Patrick Smith


— Bill would require protesters show their face – Scot Bertram  (DIERSEN: Very few of my critics/opponents show their face.  They have their operatives and the dupes do their dirty work.)


— Democrats help workers – Jerry Ryberg, Galesburg  (DIERSEN: Are/were you a worker? I was a worker 1964-1997. My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always demonized me, denigrated me, and condemned me as being a failed but overpaid worker. To qualify myself for better paying jobs, I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)

— Notre Dame President Smites Dianne Feinstein For ‘Chilling’ Questions About Nominee’s Faith – Chuck Ross


— Top Republican Slams DOJ’s ‘Terrible Decision’ – Cortney O’Brien
(FROM THE ARTICLE: “I have the utmost respect for Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions, but I’m troubled by his Department’s lack of action to fully respond to our request and deliver accountability,” Brady said in a statement. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) was just as peeved, calling the DOJ’s decision a “miscarriage of justice.” This is the second time Lerner has escaped accountability for the Tea Party-targeting scandal. Back in 2015, she was cleared of charges. An investigation found rampant “mismanagement” within the IRS, but no evidence of criminal activity.)


— Obama raised ‘Dreamers’ hopes with unconstitutional executive order (DIERSEN: What raised your hopes? For me, it was federal civil service protections. Because I have always been a Republican, were it not for federal civil service protections, a) the Post Office would NOT have hired me in 1966 or let me work there for almost 3 years, b) IRS would NOT have hired me in 1971 or let me work there for almost 9 years, c) IRS would NOT have promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, d) GAO would NOT have hired me in 1980 or let me work there for almost 18 years, and e) GAO would NOT have promoted me in 1986.)

— Bound to No Party, Trump Upends 150 Years of Two-Party Rule – PETER BAKER
— Can Dreamers Trust Anyone? – JOSE ANTONIO VARGAS  (DIERSEN: One could argue that if you are a Trump supporter, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, German American, draft avoider, and/or if your ancestors have been in America for a long time, YOU SHOULD NOT TRUST ANYONE WHO IS anti-Trump, anti-Protestant, anti-conservative, anti-Republican, anti-American, anti-White, anti-male, anti-older people, anti-rich people, anti-gun owners, anti-German Americans, anti-draft avoiders, and/or anti-those whose ancestors have been in America longer than their ancestors.)


— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “Trump betrays everyone ” and he “has a long record as an unpredictable ally.”
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “The clock is ticking on DACA. Here’s how young immigrants and their advocates are fighting back.”


— How Employers Are Helping Their Employees Retire – Mark Avallone  (DIERSEN: My Democrat GAO superiors not only did not help me retire, they forced me to take their early retirement offer in 1997 when was 49 years old.)
