Polls, Democracy and Right To Work:

Over the past several days a number of proponents of the Right to Work legislation currently sailing through the Wisconsin legislature have been touting polling figures provided by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. As a matter of fact, Mike Nichols, the president of WPRI was touting them just this morning in his op-ed piece in […]

VIDEO: Scott Walker compares peaceful labor protesters to ISIS terrorists

While addressing attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, Gov. Scott Walker was asked by an audience member to explain how he’d deal with the threat of the ISIS if he were elected president. Walker started his response by noting he receives FBI threat briefings from his adjutant general before pivoting and asserting […]

“Democrat” Dan Adams badmouths possibility of 2016 Senate run by Russ Feingold (VIDEO)

UPDATE: After posting the original piece, I was contacted by someone with knowledge of Chris Abele’s intentions, and it was made clear Chris Abele has absolutely no intentions of running for the United States Senate in 2016.

During a February 22 appearance on Sunday Insight with Charlie Sykes, Democrat (seemingly in the loosest definition of […]

WaPo: Scott Walker’s Spineless Silence

Apparently the Washington Post editorial board isn’t a fan of Gov. Scott Walker’s style of spineless silence on hot-button issues. Mr. Walker likes to present himself as a man of courage, based on his record in Wisconsin, but maybe facing down public-sector unions doesn’t tell you all that much about the bravery of a Republican […]

Who says life doesn’t imitate art?

In that time of day when the sun isn’t quite up so it isn’t actually day, yet it isn’t exactly night–a pretty magical time I think, I realized that Scott Walker running for President is a lot like that Frank Sinatra movie, “The Manchurian Candidate”, a political thriller directed by John Frankenheimer. Briefly, the film […]

The child Scott Walker left behind?

During the 2012 gubernatorial recall election the Wisconsin Citizens Media Cooperative ran a story alleging Gov. Scott Walker fathered a child in the late 1980s while he was still a student at Marquette University.

Bernadette Gillick was a college freshman in 1988 when she first met Scott Walker. It was spring semester, and she […]

Right To Work Isn’t About Freedom In The Work Place Says Fitzgerald!

The proponents of Right to Work (at your co-workers expense) legislation continually chant that it’s about freedom for workers…despite union representation being voted on by a majority of their co-workers…the individual should be able to opt out of that. But we all know it’s about union busting.

And so does House Speaker Robin Vos and […]

Wisconsin State Legislature Calls Extraordinary Session To Solve Critical Emergency!

The Wisconsin State Legislature is calling an extraordinary session next week to apparently fend off a statewide crisis. Something called Right To Work (at the expense of your co-workers) legislation demands that it be passed…oh…no…wait. This is an emergency? Isn’t that what extraordinary sessions are for?

Here is a primer on the difference between […]

Walker To Tempt State Employees To Drop State Health Coverage

This was reported in dozens of media outlets around the state this past week, but I didn’t see anything in the Milwaukee media…what’s up with that? If any of our perceptive readers saw something locally, I’d appreciate a link.

But Governor Walker is proposing paying state employees $2,000 if they opt out of the […]

When Almost $300 Million Is A Lot Of Money But $300 Million Isn’t.

JUST SAYIN’!

Governor Walker is facing a $283 deficit in the current budget that has to be satisfied before the end of June 2015. As we have all read here and in the other media, one of the sleight of hand tricks up every governor’s sleeve is deferring paying principal on state government debt and […]
