This Stock Will Go Through the Roof

Your hot stock buy today comes direct from Lake County vestigial Congressman, and market maker, Peter Roskam.

The Background:
Peter Roskam is bearish on Boeing (NYSE: BA).  For more than a year Peter Roskam has been ...
urging the president to block a multibillion-dollar deal between Boeing and Iran Air, "the terror-supporting transport-arm" of a network that is now facing steep sanctions from the Trump administration.
Republican Congressman Urges Trump to Block Boeing's Deal With Iran Air
The Fallout:
Unless you shorted your Boeing (NYSE: BA) you lost money:
The chief executive of the aerospace giant Boeing downplayed the fallout from the president's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear pact, saying on Wednesday that the company would abide by the Trump administration's decision to cancel Boeing's licenses to sell $20 billion of aircraft to Iran.
Boeing C.E.O. Downplays Loss of $20 Billion Contract With Iran
The Uptake:
Aerospace giant Boeing (NYSE: BA) faces fierce competition for government contracts from aerospace giant Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC).

The Bottomline:

Next Week:

Stealth Peter

Stealth this Shirt
Peter Roskam surfaced last week, only to find himself in the Eighth Congressional District.

Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, represents the Sixth Congressional District. He was in the Eighth Congressional District last week at the corporate offices of Northrop Grumman.

It should be no surprise that Roskam, who does not like to be seen in his home district, wisely chose to attend a corporate fête in a totally different Congressional District:
"I want to congratulate Northrop Grumman on opening a new facility in Arlington Heights that will employ many people in the Sixth District," said Congressman Peter Roskam.
Northrop Grumman opens new Illinois facility with ribbon cutting, reception
Northrop Grumman is an aerospace/defense contractor and manufactures the Stealth Bomber.

Roskam, impressed by the Stealth Bomber, was observed making inquiries. He wanted to know if Stealth technology could be harnessed for other purposes.  Say, for instance, a Stealth Congressional Townhall?

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. No one to see here, move along.

Telepath Townhall

An actual unretouched screencap spirited from the Daily Herald newssite:

Northrop Grumman Vice President Mary Petryszyn talks to U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam about the company's new offices in Arlington Heights during a ceremony Monday.
Northrop Grumman opens offices in Arlington Heights
Is the photo a really bad photoshop attempt to show two people talking? Nope. In reality, Peter Roskam was communicating with the Northrop Grumman executive, from a remote location, using ESP.

This is not the first time that Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, has used his psychic powers to communicate with constituents:
Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton says he's no fan of "circus" town hall meetings and prefers a more controlled setting for town-hall-style meetings by telepathy, which he will conduct on Monday night.
Roskam says he prefers doing town hall meetings over the psychic hotline
One spokesman said: "Anyone participating in the telepathy townhall will not be allowed to ask questions. Congressman Roskam already knows which questions will be asked."

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised before future developments warrant.

Talking to a Brick Wall

The last time anyone saw Peter Roskam, he was podcasting from his bio-secure underground bunker:

Bunker Mentality
At the same time and 500 feet up, at ground level, Parkland survivors rallied in Naperville for sensible gun control ...
On Saturday, the group held a town hall in Naperville, where Republican congressman Peter Roskam has been a consistent supporter of gun rights and has received donations from the NRA.
Parkland students aim to shakeup ‘detached politicians’ aligned with NRA
Peter Roskam, Lake County's vestigial Congressman, was unavailable for comment. Embedded informants say Roskam had been quickly hustled to a new underground secure supermax location:

Join me in calling on the administration to revisit their decision to impose tariffs that will hurt manufacturers
Note to Peter Roskam campaign Ops: Reclaimed brick is timeless. Worth every penny!

Disappointing the Lake County Assessor

The Lake County Assessor wars may go nuclear. A Bill waiting to be signed on the Governor's desk could allow Lake County voters to elect their County Assessor. The Lake County Assessor is currently an appointed position.

The Bill has wide bi-partisan support. One exception is Lake County Board Chair Aaron Lawlor. As Chair, Lawlor has the sole authority to appoint the Lake County Assessor and stands to lose that authority if the Bill becomes law.

Aaron Lawlor may not think that Lake County voters can be trusted to choose their County Assessor:
Lawlor said Friday that he feels voters should be "very concerned about this bill," adding that "this is not the type of office you elect someone who you'd like to have a beer with," because you want someone who is qualified.
Push is on for Rauner to sign bill allowing referendum for electing Lake County assessor
For the record, Aaron Lawlor holds an elected office, and wants to be re-elected in November:

Visit Lake County Illinois,
Best Day of My Life in Lake County,
Illinois. Tourism
May Mr Lawlor put you down for a yardsign?

Bunker Mentality

Note to Ops: Those hoping to meet Peter Roskam in person, may have to wait until after the November election, or later still.

Your LakeCountyEye has obtained fresh video of Lake County vestigial Congressman Peter Roskam delivering a podcast from deep within his bomb-proof bunker:

Peter Roskam -- More great news on tax cuts!
The audio of the podcast has been heavily encrypted. Certified lip readers have confirmed however that Roskam is assuring his voters that they will never be asked to sit through a Peter Roskam townhall -- not as long as Peter Roskam remains safe, deep in his undisclosed underground location.

Coming Up: Drilling begins soon on the Elon Musk Deep Tunnel to O'Hare. Experts warn that a collision with Tesla Tunnel equipment and the Peter Roskam underground bunker is "immanent".

Blame Canada

pas de train de pétrole qui explose
The Lake County exploding oil-train once again failed to explode yesterday.

In Barrington this time,
residents and commuters experienced a "perfect storm" during last night's rush hour as a Canadian National train stalled on the tracks for more than 30 minutes due to mechanical issues, blocking all four Village crossings in the 5:00 p.m. rush hour timeframe. Traffic was unable to move in any direction, causing backups throughout town and into our surrounding communities.
The stoppage occurred on the heels of tariffs and other trade barriers imposed on Canada by legitimate businessman and US President Donald J Trump. One knowledgeable Canadian said: "This was no coincidence. If our trains cannot get back to Canadian soil we have to park them somewhere. Capisce?"

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.

In God We Trust -- All Others Vote for Kash

Kash Jackson knows you can run for Governor despite lacking even the money to pay child support:
Libertarian governor candidate found in contempt of court
You do it by leveraging your insolvency into free media, courtesy cable TV:
Of course, unless your name is Donald J Trump, being the butt of humor on Comedy Central is not a strategy for electoral success.

He may be Lake County's favorite-son candidate for Governor, but a ballot-name like Kash Jackson isn't going to jack someone up to the top of the electoral totem-pole. JoeBlows named Kash Jackson come a dime a dozen. Just ask anyone who has seen as many porn movies as your LakeCountyEye has.

Note to Ops: What a Kash Jackson needs is a good middle name. Like for instance, Kash Action Jackson. Here are 10 to get things going:
Ten Middle Names
to Print on Kash Jackson Yardsigns
  1. Is King

  2. For Gold

  3. Out

  4. And Concealed Carry

  5. Flo

  6. Eddie

  7. Onthebarrelhead

  8. Only (No Credit No Checks)

  9. 4 Klunkers

  10. Amstutz
Look out for your LakeCountyEye. Danger is your LakeCountyEye's middle name.

Taking Liberties

... and bears Oh My!
It has come to your LakeCountyEye's attention that the Libertarian candidate for Governor whose sole source of income is a generous government pension is not Cal Skinner. For the record, Skinner -- the brains behind the McHenryCountyBlog -- does enjoy a generous government pension. However the last time Skinner was the Libertarian candidate for Governor was in 2002.

The 2018 Libertarian candidate for Governor whose sole source of income is a generous government pension is, in point of fact, Kash Jackson:
He said he is unemployed and living exclusively on disability and pension payments from serving 20 years in the Navy. He's admitted in court he takes home about $4,500 a month from those benefits.
Libertarian governor candidate found in contempt of court
For those unfamiliar with the term, a libertarian is defined as a person who believes in individual liberty. And being free from government.

Note to Ops: It's good to be the Libertarian.

From the Big House to the State House

QOTD #1: How many legs does a dog have if you call his tail a leg?
A #1: Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg.

QOTD #2: How many State Reps are there in Illinois if you call Peter Roskam a State Rep?
A #2: Haha, this one is not so easy is it?

This week, the Chicago City Wire called Lake County vestigial Congressman Peter Roskam a State Rep:
Chicago businessman lauds state Rep. Peter Roskam for listening to constituents
In their defense, the Chicago City Wire is no doubt held to the same exacting journalistic standards as its sister publication, the Lake County Gazette -- aka Lake County's #1 fake news source.

One insider explained things this way: "They use Russian news bots to generate all of their stories. The facial recognition algorithm probably mixed up Roskam with [State Rep] Nick Sauer."

Peter Roskam?

Peter Roskam?
If this looks to you like a another hilarious
LakeCountyEye Double Vision™
you need your eyes examined!
Note to Peter Roskam campaign Ops: Be thankful your boss doesn't look like Stormy Daniels.

Whistle Stopped?

mums the word
Lake County celebrity whistle blower Denise Rotheimer did not blow the whistle today.

Rotheimer is witness to allegations of harassment aired publicly against some high profile elected officials.  She has also been a guest on Morning Answer with Dan Proft & Amy Jacobson. This is the same Morning Answer radio talk-show where Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran said:
Um, Amy, um, I, um, not really met. She's six feet tall, got awesome skin, she's really nice looking lady. That's not bad waking up to, Dan?
Lake Co Sheriff Mark Curran joins Dan Proft & Amy Jacobson to talk community safety & life at the jail
For the record, your LakeCountyEye does not know what it is like waking up to Amy Jacobson. But your LakeCountyEye digresses.

To date, Denise Rotheimer -- who knows Amy Jacobson -- has not accused Sheriff Curran of harassment. If and when and why not remain a mystery.

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.

Well Accuse Me

He's So Fine
Lake County whistle blower Denise Rotheimer blew another whistle this week:
Big news! The allegation that is coming out on Thursday is a game changer. When his name is mentioned ... time is up. I am so grateful for the courage that she has to go public.
Ives to attend tomorrow’s press conference about “leading lawmaker” who is “longtime abuser”
The allegation was harassment.  Rotheimer did not name names, but her finger-pointer subsequently ...
appeared on conservative activist Dan Proft's Chicago radio show the Thursday morning before her press conference.
Miller: Are Loncar claims a lot of smoke?
At the press conference, the finger-pointer said the finger-pointee ...
put his hand on her lower back and asked her if she knew "how lucky" her husband was to have a wife like her.
She says Lang ‘harassed’ her — he dismisses her as disgruntled pot profiteer
It has come to your LakeCountyEye's attention however that the person accused of harassment was not Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran ... even though Curran had said this on Dan Proft's Chicago radio show:
Um, Amy, um, I, um, not really met. She's six feet tall, got awesome skin, she's really nice looking lady. That's not bad waking up to, Dan?
Lake Co Sheriff Mark Curran joins Dan Proft & Amy Jacobson to talk community safety & life at the jail
