Sorry, I couldn’t keep quiet on this one.
Senator Ron Johnson is complicit in urging the violence currently occurring in our nation’s Capitol. This is sedition and treason. He needs to resign NOW!
And then he needs to be arrested and charged with treason and domestic terrorism and shipped of to Leavenworth.

You are 100% correct.
Let’s not forget the rest of the GOP Congressional members who need to be censured and then removed from their seats. Anyone have the list of members? I seen two different sets of numbers, from 102 to 140 House members that were ready to challenge the certifications from the states.
Military Mike Gallagher and his “colleagues,” can’t have it both ways by initially inflaming the rhetoric of election fraud and then excusing themselves as being blameless by saying that they will not seek to challenge the certified electoral college votes.
Sorry, both sides of the mouth verbal vomit like this doesn’t cut the mustard as an excuse for either sedition or treason. Oh and please let’s not forget Treasonous Tom Tiffany.
Whomever is not officially held responsible for Jan 6, events at the US Capitol will give us a better picture of who the ultimate instigators of the action down the road are.
Nearly every WI US and state GOP legislator is complicit for officially questioning in a unified and unrelenting manner, the legitimacy, validity and integrity of Wisconsin’s elections.
These same legislators don’t get to avoid the same questioning about the legitimacy of their own legislative seats if they claim the POTUS election was “stolen,” and these legislators should step down, resign immediately, requesting special elections be held to re-elect each of them to their federal and state government seats. They have no legitimacy on their claims about a stolen presidential election, without first questioning, then resigning and asking for new elections for themselves.
A side issue being ignored by the main stream media in this whole mess is an unelected social media company censoring free speech and becoming the fascist gate-keepers for whose “free speech,” that will be allowed. I don’t really care how awful Trump’s deleted tweets were.
If his speech amounted to sedition, treason or a call for a coup, constitutional law and not a social media company should have been able to shut him down by simply arresting him for his actions. Social media censorship essentially excused Trump’s behavior in his specific actions on January 6.
There is no guarantee of free speech in the commercial realm. The first amendment applies to government. And Facebook and Twitter aren’t the only sites who have censored posters…I have done the same here. Just ask Nemo or Bob Dohnal.
Thanks Ed, appreciate the chance for a wider discussion.
Understood, and I agree about the limitations or allowed permissions for the commercial realm. There are however some cross-over “territories,” if that is part of an appropriate description of a problem I speculate about in my statement.
Social media messaging is subject to FOIA rules when it is engaged in by elected government officials. We are situated thusly as citizens wanting to know what our elected officials have said and a commercial interest’s removal of the statement from public view of speech that could potentially be used to convict that elected official under statutory or constitutional rules.
Yes, unelected officials or individuals speaking against rules established by a commercial enterprise fall under scrutiny of a different sort.
Relatedly our county economic development corporation is a non-profit public/private partnership that receives taxpayer support, lobbies for economic interests with no representation from or by labor, yet are not subject to FOIA rules, either from our county government or the public. Another example, municipal funding for private residential developers under no obligations to answer to the public. Questions I have been concerned about on a few different levels as to accountability to the we the people.
Thanks for a bit more of a chat about this. Not the end of a discussion by any means. I’m not sure how to go about greater resolution to the social inequity.
In the past I have pushed for the separation of identities of elected officials on social media. The President of the United States should have a unique identity that is for use in official business as president. It should not be used to promote private individuals or businesses. It should not be used to post campaign or partisan information. Then if an elected chooses to maintain a personal identity, so be it, but it has to play by the same rules as the ones that you or I may have. That shouldn’t be that hard…the legal and ethical reasons should be fairly obvious. The @realDonaldTrump mixes commercial, campaign, personal, diplomatic, and official business all in one entity. That shouldn’t ever be allowed again. Similar prohibitions should apply to all elected officials.
Wow, top billing over Bob Dohnal. I am both honored and humbled. Thanks, Ed!
Every election in this century as been challenged, both by Republicans and Democrats. It is their Constitutional right. There was more voting concern at this election than when the Democrats challenge President Bush’s election.
Pointing out all the fraud that “elected” a man with the most upstanding moral character and fine cognitive ability. Shocking. Simply shocking. It was like the Kavanaugh hearings all over again, except with actual evidence.
“All the fraud”?
I’d love to see the evidence of “all the fraud”. I can cite documented examples of Republicans who engaged in vote fraud to try to reelect President Trump, but 60+ courts haven’t found any credible evidence of a concerted effort to engage in fraud to help electe Joe Biden.
Sorry for the delay Zach (Life, Love, and the 30th Annual Lake Lucerne Bottle Rocket War).
Wisconsin Statute 6.87(6d) provides that “if a [ballot] certificate is missing the address of a witness, the ballot may not be counted.”
Progressives at the WEC told clerks,”Nah, go ahead and simply fill in any missing information.”
Under Wisconsin law, the elector is the only one authorized under Wisconsin law to correct any defect in the ballot, certificate, or ballot envelope. Not a clerk. Not a poll worker. Not anyone else. To count any of thousands of ballots “fixed” is by definition fraud.
So there you go. The statute and the violation. But wait, there’s more! Two more sources of democratic election fraud in Wisconsin can also be proved. I’ll show you them to you if you’d like.
Your assertion of what “progressive” clerks at the WEC did isn’t evidence; it’s anecdotal.
I think your beef is with Dean Knudson. Maybe you should take your evidence to him?
From the article I linked to above:
“In keeping with recent litigation, those testifying Friday raised questions about clerks filling in the addresses of witnesses on absentee ballot envelopes and allowing people to avoid providing an ID to vote absentee if they said they were confined because of age or disability. Those practices are in keeping with state law, according to a ruling issued Friday by Reserve Judge Stephen Simanek. ”
A judge disagrees with your opinion, Nemo. Can you share your legal credentials/expertise so we can assess the credibility of your assertion?
The courts seemed to rule the Trump campaign had years to argue against this ruling they themselves requested. Typical of repub shenanigans.
Trump has continually violated the policies of social media sites – most especially Twitter. The only reason he was permitted to continue using his account is that they deemed his title of such significance that it necessitated being seen. To say it again – if he were anyone else, his account would have been deleted years ago.
With the most recent tweets though – inciting people to violence – that outweighed the public’s “right to know.” Let that sink in – the President of the United States was directly inciting violence and a encouraging a coup.
I don’t know how it’s possible for something to be at once both shocking and also utterly predictable, but it is. He literally said he’d do this when he refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power not that long ago. And yet…it’s still astonishing just how beyond the pale this lunatic has gone.
If you people want to see real social change how about trying to hear the other side. 80 million votes deserves to be heard. The courts didn’t even look at the cases because they were simply scared of doing their job because of the mob media and it’s minions of destruction. Ron was doing his job back off. If we want to move forward as a strong county it’s time to work together. If we can’t do this, it will not end well. We all know this. We all want the same thing, we just go about achieving these goals different. One thing is for certain and the corruption in DC is our enemy first and foremost and it comes from both sides. Let’s stop pointing the finger because if we can come together, we can regain the power. There are foreign county’s that want to see us fall. They’re fingers are so deep in our social media disrupting and sowing hate. Our CIA is doing the same. If we are busy pointing the finger at each other, the corruption continues because we’re “preoccupied”. Some call this the “okeydoke”
I’m just as angry with the left as you are with the right. We have to move forward together or the fighting will continue. If we fight, no one wins except the countries who want what we have. If we turn to fighting we loose it all and will solve nothing. Think about this people and take your time. I know lots of people willing to work on this, may you all be part of this number.
Love, peace and respect. Time to accept each other’s differences again
Ron Johnson wasn’t doing his job; he was protecting his job. He knows he’ll incur Trump’s wrath (and the wrath of Trump’s supporters) if he doesn’t toe the line and look like he’s defending Trump.
The courts didn’t look at the cases presented to them because in many cases the cases were riddled with errors, lacking evidence, and otherwise just crappy.
Anyone prefacing their comment with “you people,” can’t then go ahead with any sort of straight face or credibility about seeking any sort of reconciliation over this incident or a larger problem.
Sorry, accountability for an attempted coup at the US Capitol, undeniable insurrection is what is needed and anecdotal generalized references about “both sides do it,” is an unsubstantiated opinion of someone unwilling to accurately assess accountability or loose their own prejudices from their opinion. Thanks for providing an example of this BS for us, and here’s another example…
…Congressman Mike Gallagher, unfortunately from my home district has taken his call to overlook his own part in fomenting the false election narrative fueling those terrorists who stormed the Capitol and murdered US citizens, and is going so far as to simply get his face plastered all around the state, using this horrific tragedy which he helped incite, to essentially build name recognition for his next campaign and to divert from determining accountability at every turn.
Despicable to a more egregious level that I didn’t think would be possible in light of events last week. I linked to his January 3 press release above.
From the OSS Simple Sabotage Field Manual word for word, what former military intelligence officer Gallagher is doing:
(11) General Interference with Organizations and Production
(a) Organizations and Conferences
(1) Insist on doing everything through “channels.” Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to, expedite decisions.
(2) Make “speeches.” Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your “points” by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences. Never hesitate to make a few appropriate “patriotic” comments.
(3) When possible, refer all matters to committees, for “further study and consideration.” Attempt to make the committees as large as possible – never less than five.
(4) Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
(5) Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.
(6) Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to reopen the question of the advisability of that decision.
(7) Advocate “caution.” Be “reasonable” and urge your fellow-conferees to be “reasonable” and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.
(8) Be worried about the propriety of any decision -raise the question of whether such action as is contemplated lies within the jurisdiction of the group or whether it might conflict with the policy of some higher echelon.
