-- Illinois Republican elected officials and candidates, Illinois Republican Party (IRP) Township Chairmen, IRP Ward Chairmen, IRP Precinct Committeemen, and IRP Precinct Captains continue to anxiously await details on IRP's December 13 meeting in Bolingbrook. The IRP County Chairman's Association meeting is said to start at 10:00 AM, the IRP State Central Committee (SCC) meeting is said to start at 11:00 AM, a luncheon is said to start immediately following the SCC meeting, and the proposed agenda is said to include presentations by candidates for the RNC National Chairman position. - Dave Diersen

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Bean, Biggert, Foster, Manzullo, and Roskam "sit on the House committee now weighing a $34 billion rescue package for General Motors, Ford and Chrysler." Even though "Nearly 8,000 jobs in Illinois are directly tied to the Big Three and that doesn't include thousands more at independent car dealerships across the Chicago area" and "Three manufacturing plants employ thousands in northwestern Illinois, including Ford facilities in Chicago and Chicago Heights and a Chrysler plant in Belvidere," Roskam "appears to be the most critical of a Big Three bailout." Diersen is one of Roskam's constituents who argues that vehicle manufacture is vital to America's national security, and that therefore, foreign companies should not be allowed to take over that industry. Politicians who come across like they are more interested in demonizing and denigrating GM, Ford, and Chrysler than they are interested in protecting America's national security are headed for defeat.

-- DIERSEN QUESTIONS: How soon before everyone will get to ride free on public transportation except old White male conservatives who drive GM, Ford, or Chrysler cars? If the anti-Americans succeed in driving GM, Ford, and Chrysler out of business, how soon will it be before the last GM, Ford, Chrysler car is no longer drivable? Anti-Americans want America to be like Cuba, but wait, aren't Cubans still driving cars that GM, Ford, and Chrysler built in the 1950s?
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Jonathan Cho of Carpentersville fails to acknowledge that if Americans had wasted their time learning foreign languages, America would never have been able to win the Civil War, win WWI, win WWII, put a man on the moon, slow down communism, etc., etc., and America would be a dysfunctional mess like the rest of world that wastes its time learning foreign languages. For many different reasons, just about everyone in the world is fluent in English or soon will be. So why should Americans waste their time learning foreign languages?

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Democrat Herald News promotes Democrat Halvorson "from Crete." During the 1840s and 1850s, all Diersen's ancestors immigrated legally from what is now Germany to America, all of them were Lutherans, all of them were conservative, and all of them were Republicans. My ancestors on my father's side have lived in Crete since the 1850s. My mother and brother continue to live in Crete in a home that my grandfather built in 1926 on land my ancestors bought in 1864. Sadly, back in 1978, my wife and I foresaw the day when Crete would no longer be represented in Congress by a Republican. That was a major reason why we bought a home in Republican Wheaton in 1978 and why we have continued to live in Republican Wheaton ever since.,4_1_JO06_DEBBIE_S1.article

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: It seems America's national security is not one of Drew McKissick's top priorities. It seems his top priority is to help foreign companies take over America's automotive industry.
