Republican Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) handily defeated his Democratic opponent, Tanya Lohr, in last week’s election, but apparently it wasn’t easy. Grothman took to the airwaves Thursday morning to talk about “the special interests” he was up against, including, um, the New World Order. Grothman also claimed that President Obama and Tammy Baldwin probably won their elections due to fraud, and that eventually he’s “going to have to lay down the gauntlet” on the people who enforce Obamacare. Seriously.
When speaking with Sly this morning, State Senator Grothman seemed truly baffled by the $600 donation he said Tanya Lohr received from “the New World Order” aka “the Council on Foreign Relations,” so much so that he couldn’t really be certain from whence the donation came. The donation was sent from a woman named “Anne” who lives in Maryland, and according to Grothman, she has donated before.
When radio show host Sly Sylvestor pressed Grothman to explain why the Council on Foreign Relations might be out to get him and asked if there “was a target on his back,” Grothman admitted it was a real head-scratcher. He plans to look into it further, he said.
Grothman also plans to “talk to some more people” about the probability that President Obama won re-election due to fraud, explaining that “some people are of the opinion that Democrats cheat.”
One thing Grothman did seem certain about was that the U.S. Supreme Court does not enforce the Constitution and that it hasn’t for many years, which is why America’s going downhill, and why state senators like himself will “eventually have to lay down the gauntlet” on those who enforce Obamacare (aka the feds).

Watch as Republican Sen. John McCain explains to CBS News that he would block U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s confirmation if President Obama nominates her as the next Secretary of State, saying she’s ‘not being very bright’ and ‘not qualified.’
Keep in mind that John McCain is the same man who as the Republican presidential nominee in 2008 chose as his vice presidential running mate former half-term Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who demonstrated how “bright” and “qualified” she was to be a heartbeat away from the presidency on more than one occasion.
Pardon me if I have a hard time taking John McCain seriously as someone “bright enough” or “qualified” to judge anyone else’s qualifications or decision making skills.
Oh, and for the record, here’s what Susan Rice really said about the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, free from Republican spin.
RICE: Well, first of all, Chris, we are obviously investigating this very closely. The FBI has a lead in this investigation. The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video. People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya and that then spun out of control.
But we don’t see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan, premeditated attack. Obviously, we will wait for the results of the investigation and we don’t want to jump to conclusions before then. But I do think it’s important for the American people to know our best current assessment.
The fact is, anyone who’s looked at Susan Rice’s resume can see she’d be incredibly qualified to serve as our nation’s next Secretary of State, if President Obama calls her to serve in that capacity.
Savita Halappanavar, 31 years old and 17 weeks pregnant, presented with back pain at Ireland’s University Hospital Galway on October 21st, and was found to be miscarrying.
Her husband, Praveen Halappanavar (34), an engineer at Boston Scientific in Galway, says she asked several times over a three-day period that the pregnancy be terminated. He says that, having been told she was miscarrying, and after one day in severe pain, Ms Halappanavar asked for a medical termination.
This was refused, he says, because the foetal heartbeat was still present and they were told, “this is a Catholic country”.
Even though Halappanavar, a Hindu, was emphatic that she was neither Irish nor Catholic, and even though she developed shakes and shivering and was vomiting, the hospital said there was nothing to be done.
Two and a half days later, the fetal heartbeat stopped. Heartbreaking, but the story gets even worse.
After the dead fetus was removed, Halappanavar was taken to intensive care where she died on the Oct. 28. Two days later, an autopsy found she succumbed to septicaemia and E.coli ESBL.
No woman should ever lose her life when medical treatment could have saved her life.
