In proving that Godwin’s Law applies to struggling Democrat campaigns just like it applies to the Internet, the Mary Burke campaign has decided to flash some swastikas in some ads that are encouraging people to vote for Mary Burke. Here is the ad in question, and it’s just as ridiculous as you might think it would be: Here’s the basic gist of the | Read More »
The recent bogus indictment against Rick Perry is the third in a series of recent charges against potential 2016 Republican presidential aspirants in less than a year. It is starting to be less coincidence and looks more like a concerted effort to tarnish the reputations of potential 2016 Republicans. The first incident and one that is continuing at great cost to the state and an | Read More »
Democrats knew going into 2014 they’d have bleak chances nationwide. They started screaming racism, trying to whip black and hispanic voters into a frenzy against Republicans. If Republicans dared look angrily at Eric Holder, why that was racism. Even now, Democrats intend to turn the tragedy of Ferguson, MO into a political campaign, thereby undoing a lot of bridge building between the left and right. | Read More »
It is not coercion to threaten to do something you are lawfully permitted to do. I successfully used this legal principle in court early in my legal career. This well-established legal principle is not some obscure legal concept, except perhaps in Travis County, Texas. I am unaware of any other jurisdiction in the United States that might agree with the Travers County Grand Jury and special | Read More »
Late on Friday an indictment was made public against Texas Governor Rick Perry by the Travis County District Attorney’s office alleging that the Governor abused his powers and illegally tried to coerce the Travis County DA by threatening to and then actually vetoing over $7 million in state funding to the office for its Public Integrity unit when the DA Rosemary Lehmberg refused to resign | Read More »
While many Republicans who are facing incumbent Democrats are having to face hysterical, panicked, and wildly inaccurate attacks on their records on issues that virtually no one cares about, Scott Walker has the luxury of having faced his electorate not once but twice, and running on a proven record of achievement. The end result is that even though Walker is running in a blue state, | Read More »
Katie McDonough is a writer and assistant editor for Salon, a Left wing online rag. A quick survey of her articles illustrates a tendency to be preoccupied with rape, abortion and contraception. Of course, the Left refers to the latter two as “reproductive rights.” Although not quite as bad as Amanda Marcotte- another spew- McDonough must have graduated from the same gender studies course at | Read More »
While this is a very interesting article written about Democratic Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke (who will likely to face Scott Walker in November), this is the most important sentence in the whole thing: So far, neither the Democratic Governors Association nor EMILY’s List (which spent $3.5 million to help elect Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin in 2012) has launched ads on Burke’s behalf, and both | Read More »
Late Thursday morning, an attorney for special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, who is leading a once-secret probe into conservative groups in Wisconsin, released a bombshell statement on behalf of his boss. When documents related to the probe became public last week, state and national media outlets tripped over themselves to explain how they implicated Gov. Scott Walker and showed him to be at the center of | Read More »
Last week, the New York Times published both an editorial board piece and a news report detailing allegations that Gov. Scott Walker and his allies violated campaign finance laws during the Wisconsin recall elections. While the paper prides itself on its national audience and standing as a newspaper of record, it miserably failed to present the facts in a clear, lucid fashion. By burying key | Read More »
Scott Walker As Fire Breathing Racist There really are times when life imitates The New Republic. These are rarely pleasant or laudable times; but it does happen. A recent play in Brazil’s opening World Cup match vs. Croatia reminded me a lot of a recent article by Alec McGillis in TNR. I’ll describe each and you’ll immediately see the resemblance. In | Read More »
I know, I’m late again. Turns out after being sick my body’s just been exhausted recovering. We’ll be better off next week.
Ajit Pai came to RedState on Friday to tell us about the Zapple Doctrine was being used by the FCC to stifle freedom of speech, specifically to try to hinder Scott Walker. The Zapple Doctrine is now dead, but we need to check the FCC to keep it from returning.
