Democrats Continue To Prove That Theirs Is The Violent Ideology Of Fascism

State Legislator’s Son Beaten Defending Romney Sign From Thieves
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 10/22/12 7:21 PM

Vandalism is a normal part of the course of a political campaign — with signs stolen, cars with bumper stickers keyed or spray painted comments plastered on walls of offices used by candidates and their staff.

But the son of a Wisconsin state legislator paid the price for defending a Romney sign from two apparent Obama supporters, he was beaten for standing up for his property and the candidate his sign supports.

From Brietbart:

Early Friday morning, thugs presumably supporting President Obama beat up the son of Wisconsin State Senator Neal Kedzie outside of his apartment in Whitewater. Kedzie caught the two men removing a Romney sign outside of his apartment around two o’clock in the morning. After telling them to put the signs back, one of the thugs attacked Kedzie and then put him in a choke hold and continued to beat his head.

Mark Belling spoke to the Senator’s son Sean on the radio earlier today. Sean Kedzie told Belling he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance with possible skull and eye socket fractures.

Here is Sen. Kedzie’s statement:

Early on Friday morning, October 19th, my son Sean was awakened by noises outside his residence in Whitewater. As he went to see what the commotion was about, he noticed an individual removing a Romney/Ryan yard sign from his property. He yelled to the person that they were taking something not theirs and to return it immediately. The individual returned the sign, however, a second person confronted and attacked Sean without warning.

Sean was wrestled to the ground by both persons, held down by a constricting chokehold, and struck repeatedly about the face and head. He nearly passed out from the chokehold and suffered contusions to his face and eyes. Fortunately, an alert neighbor heard the commotion, scared the individuals away, and called the police. My wife and I were awakened by a telephone call from Sean’s roommate that Sean had been taken by ambulance to Fort Atkinson Memorial Hospital.

Sean was treated for his injuries and released from the hospital the same day. As this was a private family matter, we chose not to remark publicly about it and allow law enforcement to do their job. But we understand these types of incidents will eventually become public and questions will arise, particularly in my position as a state legislator.

Sean is still recovering from the injuries he sustained as a result of this beating, and we are confident he will make a full recovery. But obviously, as parents, we are shaken by this event and very troubled it was apparently initiated and motivated for political reasons.

Soon – and particularly if Obama gets re-elected – we will be seeing unions and students violently rioting to get more of other people’s money.  It is who they are because liberals are evil and violent and hateful (55 million babies murdered by Democrats and liberals are crying out for God’s justice as we speak).  When violence comes to America, it will come from the left.  Just as it is coming from the left now all over Europe.

Why Do We Go Through The Useless Pretense Of Bothering To Have Elections When Fascist Black-Robed Judges Are Really Our Masters?

September 15, 2012

“This member of the Government was at first considered as the most harmless and helpless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what the law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining slyly and without alarm the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.”
—Thomas Jefferson to Edward Livingston, 1825. ME 16:114

“The Constitution . . . meant that its coordinate branches should be checks on each other. But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”
—Thomas Jefferson to Abigail Adams, 1804. ME 11:51

“To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps. Their maxim is boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem [good justice is broad jurisdiction], and their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”
—Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:277

Ah, the hell with it: Let’s just let Judge Adolf P. Fuehrer decide everything.  I mean, people sheople.

Why do we bother to go through the sham of voting and having elections?  We really might as well just have one of those tyrant-regime-style “elections” where everybody gets to vote as long as they only vote for their “president for life.”  Because that’s what we’ve got here now:

Judge strikes down Wisconsin law restricting union rights
By NBC News staff and news services
September 14, 2012

A Wisconsin judge on Friday struck down the state law championed by Gov. Scott Walker that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for most public workers.

Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled Friday that the law violates the state and U.S. constitutions and is null and void.

The law took away nearly all collective bargaining rights from most workers and has been in effect for more than a year.

Colas’ ruling comes after a lawsuit brought by the Madison teachers union and a union for Milwaukee city employees.

For city, county and school workers, the ruling returns the law to its previous status, before it was changed in March 2011, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported. However, Walker’s law remains largely in force for state workers, it reported.

Walker’s law prohibited state and local governments from bargaining over anything except cost of living adjustments to salaries. Haggling over issues such as health benefits, pensions and workplace safety was barred.

Gov. Walker said in a statement Friday that he expected the ruling will be overturned on appeal.

“The people of Wisconsin clearly spoke on June 5th,” he said in the statement posted on his Facebook page. “Now, they are ready to move on. Sadly a liberal activist judge in Dane County wants to go backwards and take away the lawmaking responsibilities of the legislature and the governor. We are confident that the state will ultimately prevail in the appeals process.”

“We believe the law is constitutional,” said Wisconsin Department of Justice spokeswoman Dana Brueck.

The proposal was introduced shortly after Walker took office in February last year. It sparked a firestorm of opposition and huge protests at the state Capitol that lasted for weeks. All 14 Democratic state senators fled to Illinois for three weeks in an ultimately failed attempt to stop the law’s passage by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

The law’s passage led to a mass movement to recall Walker from office, but he survived the recall election, becoming the first governor in U.S. history to do so.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

I didn’t know that “collective bargaining” was enshrined in our Constitution.  Could somebody point out where?  I guess I must have slept through that lecture in that Civics class I took or something.

It’s probably in the same damn penumbras and emanations that the right to murder your baby is in, I suppose.

I’m all for workers having the right to form a union and I’m all for the right of that union to be able to “collectively bargain.”  As long as any employer – be that employer a small business owner, a CEO, a governor or a president – to be able to fire the ass of everybody who collectively bargained.

Again, where is it in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights that an employer loses the right to be able to fire workers?  Where is it stated that if workers want more money, and they “collectivize,” that he or she can’t fire them and get better workers who are willing to work for the wages that the employer is willing to pay???  Where the hell is it stated that an unemployed worker who would very damn much love to have a job cannot have the right to be able to work for that wage that the employer is willing to pay???  Where is it in our Constitution that only UNION workers ought to have the right to a job?

That’s what makes “collective bargaining” so evil; it arbitrarily gives a “right” to a union and takes away the rights of every single business and every single worker who would be thrilled to work for the pay that the union worker snubs his nose at.

And I want to know where that judge found that – other than by looking rather far up his own butt.

Damn I’m sick of these judges.  Just like I was sick of them not once but TWICE as a damn judge who believed himself above the will of the people overturned first Proposition 22 (which passed by 61% of the people’s vote) and then Proposition 8 (which passed by the same majority that gave Obama the damn presidency).

That’s what we need now – and will need even more if Obama gets reelected; we need a judge to look far enough up his own ass to “find” whatever penumbra or emanation and declare that Obama’s election is unconstitutional and throw his butt out of office.

This nation is no longer a democracy, a republic, a democratic republic, or anything remotely like any of the above.  It is an oligarchy of judicial activists and that is all that it is now.

A few other wise words of warning by Thomas Jefferson:

  • “Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”
  • “A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both, and deserve neither.”
  • “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”
  • “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
  • “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

We are to the point where that last one has become an important reality: our country has been stolen from us by black-robed usurpers, and we need to take it back from them.

The Private Sector’s Doing Fine? It’s Time To Smack Down Government Unions And Their Useful Idiot Obama Once And For All

June 11, 2012

One of the facts of history is that even Franklin Delano Roosevelt believed that government unions was un-American and inherently dangerous (see here and also here).  FDR pointed out the fact that for a government employee, “the employer was the whole people” and described strikes by public union workers – which have happened many, many times, for what it’s worth – as something that:

“manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable.”

It is a morbid, not to mention sick and twisted, fact that public unions now own the Democrat Party.  Big union money represents more than TEN TIMES any Republican Party special interest money.

Obama’s utterly asinine statement that “the public sector’s doing fine” was an inherent plea for the American people to sacrifice themselves, their families and their economic interests in order to make government and the government unions that are in bed with the Democrat Party bigger.

The reality is that the private sector labor force has massively shrank to its lowest rate in more than thirty-one years under the failed policies of Barack Obama.  And even worse, as that article documents, the numbers keep moving IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.  Obama’s “improved” unemployment rate is a load of bunk: the only reason the rate has decreased is because the millions who drop out of the labor force are no longer counted.  The fact is that 88 MILLION working age Americans are idly sitting on their asses under Obama’s absolute failure as president.

As another real-term measure of how frankly evil Obama’s assertion that “the private sector’s doing fine,” the median wage – which Obama demonized George Bush’s presidency for a $2,000 decline over eight years – has declined a shocking $4,300 since Obama took office.  Which is to say that Obama is actually well over four times as much a failure as the president he has made his entire presidency about demonizing.

“Doing fine” my ass.

But let’s get back to the other side of the equation, the public unions, that Obama wants you to help pave right over your own grave.

Public unions have been a mistake that have been “progressively” poisoning America for the last 50 years.  It is long past time to correct that mistake – with an axe:

The End Nears for a 50-Year Mistake
Jeff Jacoby
Jun 10, 2012

In retrospect, there were two conspicuous giveaways that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was headed for victory in last week’s recall election.

One was that the Democrats’ campaign against him wound up focusing on just about everything but Walker’s law limiting collective bargaining rights for government workers. Sixteen months ago, the Capitol building in Madison was besieged by rioting protesters hell-bent on blocking the changes by any means necessary. Union members and their supporters, incandescent with rage, likened Walker to Adolf Hitler and cheered as Democratic lawmakers fled the state in a bid to force the legislature to a standstill. Once the bill passed, unions and Democrats vowed revenge, and amassed a million signatures on recall petitions.

But the more voters saw of the law’s effects, the more they liked it. Dozens of school districts reported millions in savings, most without resorting to layoffs. Property taxes fell. A $3.6 billion state budget deficit turned into a $154 million projected surplus. Walker’s measures proved a tonic for the economy, and support for restoring the status quo ante faded — even among Wisconsin Democrats. Long before Election Day, Democratic challenger Tom Barrett had all but dropped the issue of public-sector collective bargaining from his campaign to replace Walker.

The second harbinger was the plunge in public-employee union membership. The most important of Walker’s reforms, the change Big Labor had fought most bitterly, was ending the automatic withholding of union dues. That made union membership a matter of choice, not compulsion — and tens of thousands of government workers chose to toss their union cards. More than one-third of the American Federation of Teachers Wisconsin membership quit, reported The Wall Street Journal. At the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, one of the state’s largest unions, the hemorrhaging was worse: AFSCME’s Wisconsin rolls shrank by more than 34,000 over the past year, a 55 percent nose-dive.

Did government workers tear up their union cards solely because the union had lost its right to bargain collectively on their behalf? That’s doubtful: Even under the new law, unions still negotiate over salaries. More likely, public-sector employees ditched their unions for the same reasons so many employees in the private sector — which is now less than 7 percent unionized — have done so. Many never wanted to join a union in the first place. Others were repelled by the authoritarian, belligerent, and left-wing political culture that entrenched unionism so often embodies.

Even before the votes in Wisconsin were cast, observed Michael Barone last week, Democrats and public-employee unions “had already lost the battle of ideas over the issue that sparked the recall.” Their tantrums and slanders didn’t just fail to intimidate Walker and Wisconsin lawmakers from reining in public-sector collective bargaining. They also gave the public a good hard look at what government unionism is apt to descend to. The past 16 months amounted to an extended seminar on the danger of combining collective bargaining with government jobs. Voters watched — and learned.

There was a time when pro-labor political leaders like Franklin D. Roosevelt and Fiorello LaGuardia regarded it as obvious that collective bargaining was incompatible with public employment. Even the legendary AFL-CIO leader George Meany once took it for granted that there could be no “right” to bargain collectively with the government.

When unions bargain with management in the private sector, both sides are contending for a share of the private profits that labor helps produce — and both sides are constrained by the pressures of market discipline. Managers can’t ignore the company’s bottom line. Unions know that if they demand too much they may cost the company its competitive edge.

But when labor and management bargain in the public sector, they are divvying up public funds, not private profits. Government bureaucrats don’t have to worry about losing business to their competitors; state agencies can’t relocate to another part of the country. There is little incentive to hold down wages and benefits, since the taxpayers who will be picking up the tab have no seat at the table. On the other hand, government managers have a powerful motivation to yield to government unions: Union members vote, and their votes can be deployed to reward politicians who give them what they want — or punish those who don’t.

In 1959, when Wisconsin became the first state to enact a public-sector collective-bargaining law, it wasn’t widely understood what the distorted incentives of government unionism would lead to. Five decades later, the wreckage is all around us. The privileges that come with government work — hefty automatic pay raises, Cadillac pension plans, iron-clad job security, ultra-deluxe health insurance — have in many cases grown outlandish and staggeringly unaffordable. What Keith Geiger, the former head of the National Education Association, once referred to as “our sledgehammer, the collective bargaining process,” has wreaked havoc on state and municipal budgets nationwide.

Now, at long last, the pendulum has reversed. The 50-year mistake of public-sector unions is being corrected. Walker’s victory is a heartening reminder that in a democracy, even the most entrenched bad ideas can sometimes be unentrenched. On, Wisconsin!

It wasn’t just Wisconsin, which voted for Obama by a fifteen point margin, that is rejecting Obama’s demand to increase government and government unions.  It turns out that San Diego and San Jose similarly utterly and overwhelmingly rejected the morally evil demands of public sector union “workers.”  It’s facts like this that made even these historically liberal cities reject the government union label:

San Jose firefighters were able to retire at the age of 48 with 90 percent of their salaries as pension.  And after seventy percent of the residents of San Jose voted to end that pork, they are suing to use rat bastard judges to force the people to keep bankrupting themselves to pay those benefits.  Given that the people who pay their salaries and benefits get nothing anywhere near that, it is immoral.

California alone has an unfunded pension liability of $500 BILLION.  There is absolutely no way in hell the taxpayers can pay the bill that morally evil labor unions want to force the private sector that is “doing fine” to pay. 

What Barack Obama wants is immoral.

Fire him in November.

A Week Obama Would Like To Forget Is A Week The American People Most Need To Remember Come Election Day

June 9, 2012

Let’s call it a crappy week for a turd president:

Obama’s week goes from bad to worse
By Dave Boyer – The Washington Times
Friday, June 8, 2012

When President Obama looks back on the past week, perhaps he’ll remember fondly the pies that first lady Michelle Obama purchased for him at a bakery in Virginia – because the rest of his week was a political nightmare.

Mr. Obama’s week to forget began with a disappointing report on the economy on Friday, June 1, showing that the unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent in May, up from 8.1 percent in April.

It was hardly the kind of news to give Mr. Obama momentum heading into the final five months of his reelection campaign, and he seemed subdued as he spoke to supporters that night at what should have been a raucous campaign fundraiser in his hometown of Chicago.

“We’re not where we need to be,” Mr. Obama said in the mostly quiet ballroom, referring to the jobs report. “We’ve still got miles to go on this journey.”

The president did get to sleep in his own bed in Chicago that night, something he has yearned to do. And the next day, he went for a stroll in his old neighborhood (watched closely by Secret Service agents), another act of freedom for which he’s clamored.

From there, however, things went bad in a hurry.

After Mr. Obama campaigned with former President Bill Clinton Monday night in New York City, Mr. Clinton gave a TV interview Tuesday in which he supported extending temporarily the George W. Bush-era tax cuts for all Americans to help the economy.

That ran counter to the wishes of Mr. Obama, who wants taxes to increase for families earning more than $250,000 per year.

Republicans promptly called for Mr. Obama to follow Mr. Clinton’s advice.

After Team Obama reportedly made urgent calls to Team Clinton, the former president tried to clarify his comments. It would become a harbinger for Mr. Obama’s week.

Also on Tuesday, Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin won his recall election by a comfortable seven percentage points, dealing a harsh blow to Democrats and their union allies that invested heavily in get-out-the-vote efforts. The election was viewed by many as a tipping point in rolling back the political bond between public-employee unions and Democratic office-holders.

“Bad jobs numbers and the failed Wisconsin recall probably makes this president wish he could either sleep in late tomorrow or go back in time and get things right,” said Republican strategist Ron Bonjean.

Some in the Democratic Party blamed Mr. Obama for staying out of the Wisconsin fight. About the only visible step the president took was to issue a “tweet” in support of the Democratic candidate on his personal Twitter account Monday night.

“It’s Election Day in Wisconsin tomorrow, and I’m standing by Tom Barrett. He’d make an outstanding governor,” the president tweeted, using the personal handle “bo.”

Commented Mickey Kraus at the Daily Caller, “He didn’t even use all 140 characters.” The blogger called the effort “wussy.”

Also on Tuesday, Mr. Obama lost a surrogate race in New Jersey to that pesky Clinton fellow. The president’s good friend and ally, Rep. Steve Rothman, lost his Democratic primary to Democratic Rep. Bill Pascrell, who was endorsed by Mr. Clinton. Both House incumbents had been forced to run against each other by redistricting. Mr. Obama had made a show of inviting Mr. Rothman to the Oval Office on June 1 as a signal of his support, but to no avail.

On Wednesday, Mr. Obama took a break from Washington by flying to California for a series of five fundraisers, including a gay-rights gala in Beverly Hills. But on Thursday, fundraising statistics released by both campaigns showed that GOP nominee Mitt Romney had surpassed Mr. Obama for the first time in May, out-raising the president’s campaign $76 million to $60 million.

“We got beat,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, although Democrats said they expected it to be a one-time blip due to Mr. Romney securing the nomination.

Mr. Obama capped off his inglorious week by holding a hastily called news conference at the White House on Friday. It turned out poorly for him.

During a discussion of the economy, Mr. Obama remarked that the “private sector’s doing fine.”

Within an hour, Mr. Romney and other GOP leaders were ridiculing the president for his comment and preparing campaign videos to exploit the gaffe.

“He’s defining what it means to be detached and out of touch with the American people,” Mr. Romney said on the campaign trail, clearing delighting in the opportunity to fire back an accusation that the Obama campaign has used against the Republican.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, asked the president simply, “Are you kidding?”

By the end of the day, Mr. Obama was forced to clarify his comment, saying “it’s absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine.”

As he walked out of that press conference Friday, a reporter called out to Mr. Obama for his reaction to the Wisconsin recall election. The president kept walking.

But before he reached the door, another reporter shouted a final question, asking Mr. Obama if he’d enjoyed the pie that his wife had purchased for him.

The president turned back momentarily, smiled, and gave a thumbs-up.

I hope you don’t hate America enough to want to inflict four more years of this loser and his loser policies on this country.

P.S. I hope Obama enjoyed his pie as much as I enjoyed watching Wisconsin overwhelmingly reject his ideology last Tuesday.

Cockroach Left That Outspent Republicans 3-1 Now Whining That Republicans Are Outspending Them: ‘The End Of The USA As We Know It Just Happened!’

June 7, 2012

I kept hearing over and over again in the media that Scott Walker was outspending the Democrat loser 7-1.

Here’s one particularly pathetic take on that:

Voter Cries Over WI Recall: Signaling Death Of Democracy, ‘End Of USA As We Know It’
video
by Meenal Vamburkar | 11:35 pm, June 5th, 2012

Wisconsin’s intense, passionate recall battle came to a close Tuesday night, with Scott Walker retaining his title as governor. After the projections were in, CNN headed to Badger State to get some reactions — including one from a Tom Barrettsupporter who was very emotional. Unable to hold back tears, he lamented the results, angrily decrying the end of democracy.

RELATED: Republican Scott Walker Wins Wisconsin Recall Election

Before cutting to the voter, Mike, John King noted that he “underscored” his disappointment. “We’re not just disappointed,” the voter said, “this is the end of democracy.”

Noting they got outspent $34 million to $4 million, he said, “This was the biggest election in America.” Becoming more emotional, he went on to say, “Democracy died tonight.” Acknowledging he’s “very emotional,” he broke into tears, saying, “This was it. If we didn’t win tonight, the end of the USA as we know it just happened.”

Before King chimed back in, the voter got his message in once more: “Democracy’s dead.”

Take a look, via CNN [see site for embedded video]:

The same video is currently available on Youtube:

How terrible was it when Obama was outspending John McCain by 3-1 and even by as much as 5-1????  Oh, it was a good thing, then.  Great for democracy, you know.

Well, it turns out that it is a LIE that Democrats got outspent $34 million to $4 million, and that the Walker recall was won because Republicans unfairly amassed huge out-of-state money while honest Democrats tried vainly to use the state electoral process and got crushed.

It turns out that the same media that counted every single penny that Republicans raised somehow managed to overlook $21 million in out-of-state union money:

Spending Gap? Media Ignores $21 Million Unions Spent in WI
by Ben Shapiro June 6, 2012

The spin from the left on the morning after their disastrous Wisconsin recall election failure is that Governor Scott Walker (R-WI), who walked away with the election, did so because he spent oodles of money.

Politico’s takeaway: “Money shouts.” “Walker wins one for the plutocrats,” trumpeted Joan Walsh of Salon.com. “Outspent 7-1, Democrats couldn’t beat Scott Walker with a strong ground game.” Media Matters’ favorite Washington Post columnist, Greg Sargent, cited the Citizens United decision allowing corporate political spending no less than five times in his recap of the election – despite the fact that not one dollar spent in Wisconsin would have been illegal before Citizens United. The Post’s Chris Cillizza said, “Being outspent 10-1 (or worse) is never a recipe for success in a race. Democrats cried foul over Walker’s exploitation of a loophole that allowed him to collect unlimited contributions prior to the official announcement of the recall in late March.” Daily Kos said that with Walker’s spending edge, “It shouldn’t even be close.”

This is false.

Overall, over $63.5 million was spent on the recall effort by various parties. Walker spent about $30 million; Barrett spent about $4 million. Most of the money spent by Walker came from out-of-state sources – The Republican Governors Association spent about $4 million, almost all from out-of-state; the Kochs gave $1 million; the Chamber of Commerce gave $500,000. On the surface, then, it appears that Walker had a tremendous cash advantage.

Not so fast. As it turns out, labor unions spent an additional $21 million on the recall election. When it came to state senate recall elections back in September 2011, Democrats outspent Republicans $23.4 million to $20.5 million.

While Politico’s Glenn Thrush says that there’s “only one paragraph you really need to read this ayem, courtesy of the Center for Public Integrity,” then quotes a paragraph talking about Walker’s biggest donors, that’s hackish reporting. The CPI actually adds:

Campaign contributions tell only part of the story. National unions have kept Barrett’s campaign alive by funding outside groups dedicated to defeating Walker. More than a year since Walker limited collective bargaining rights for most public employees, the nation’s three largest public unions — the National Education Association (NEA), American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) — have channeled at least $2 million from their treasuries and super PACs to two Wisconsin-based independent expenditure groups.

It’s also worth noting that while Republicans largely had to build their ground game from the ground up, labor unions have a consistent ground game – funded by tax dollars. All of the donations to Walker and pro-Walker groups were not mandated. The same is not true of Big Labor dollars, which come from mandatory unions dues in most cases.

In terms of strict numbers, Walker spent some $30 million; Barrett and the unions spent $25 million. That’s not a 7-to-1 differential. And when you add in unions’ inherent advantage in ground game, you’re talking about a better-than-even split for Barrett.

Scott Walker won last night because he is a good governor. He didn’t win because of a money advantage, even though Wisconsin rules heavily favor incumbent politicians who are recalled (they can raise unlimited contributions from individuals after recall petitions are filed, whereas opponents cannot take more than $10,000 from individuals). The media’s attempt to pass this election off as a win for big money simply doesn’t hold water.

Okay, so Democrats tried to raise tons of money for this race outside Wisconsin.  Only Republicans raised more money from out-of-state.  And therefore Democrats say out-of-state money is unfair even though they have been doing it for YEARS and tried to do it again here.

So why did “The end of the USA as we know it just happen”????

Because now Republicans are fighting back.

I make a point in an article I just published that points out a few facts:

Speaking of fundraisers, it’s actually amazing: not only has Obama raised more campaign money from Wall Street “fat cats” than any politician in American history, but in fact Obama has plainly and simply pimped more money than any politician in the history of the entire human race. Which is to say that when Obama just keeps going from fundraiser to fundraiser to fundraiser (having attended more of them than the last five previous presidents COMBINED), he’s just obeying his weasel nature.

Obama has raised more money from “greedy” and “fat cat” Wall Street than any politician who ever lived:

The audacity is breathtaking.

The president has raised more money from Wall Street through the Democratic National Committee and his campaign account than any politician in American history. This year alone, he has raked in more cash from bank employees, hedge fund managers and financial services companies than all Republican candidates combined.

Even poor Mitt Romney was outraised by the Obama money machine at his former employer, Bain Capital, by a margin of 2 to 1.

It is a campaign operation whose wheels are greased by Wall Street bundlers like MF Global former chief, Jon Corzine. These financiers are so good at what they do that the Center for Responsive Politics reports that Obama’s Wall Street fundraising will “far surpass 2008 in terms of raw dollars and as a percentage of what he raises overall.”

That’s saying a lot considering that Obama’s “Hope and Change” campaign in 2008 raised more money from the financial community than any other politician in American history.

Obama has raised more money than any politician who ever walked the planet earth:

Washington, May 23 (ANI): President Barack Obama has been found to be the first U.S. politician ever to raise over a billion dollars in the course of his career.

According to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, his lifetime total hit has been found to be 1,017,892,305 dollars in April, nine years after he began his 2004 race for Senate.

According to the New York Daily News, the Center results found the President to have raised more than 217 million dollars so far for this campaign, while his November opponent Mitt Romney has made just fewer than 100 million dollars.

Obama has attended and whore himself out at more money-grubbing fundraisers than the last previous five presidents COMBINED:

Barack Obama has already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined, according to figures to be published in a new book.

Obama is also the only president in the past 35 years to visit every electoral battleground state in his first year of office.

The figures, contained a in a new book called The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign by Brendan J. Doherty, due to be published by University Press of Kansas in July, give statistical backing to the notion that Obama is more preoccupied with being re-elected than any other commander-in-chief of modern times.

Doherty, who has compiled statistics about presidential travel and fundraising going back to President Jimmy Carter in 1977, found that Obama had held 104 fundraisers by March 6th this year, compared to 94 held by Presidents Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Snr, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush combined.

In another recent article I wrote I point out that it was none other than Barack Hussein Obama who totally destroyed any limits on campaign contributions when he broke his word of honor and became the first presidential candidate in American history to abandon the public matching funds that set LIMITS on fundraising:

In 2008, Obama’s record haul was made possible by the fact that he broke a campaign pledge and opted out of the public financing system. He was the first candidate ever to take that step, and he justified it with the prospect of hostile outside spending.

And now the very same Democrats who pissed on limits for campaign money are the biggest whiners over the huge money because suddenly they aren’t able to raise as much.

As righteously outraged as the Democrats are over the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, that decision was merely the Supreme Court recognizing that in Barack Obama Democrats had destroyed the process that had always previously existed before – even though Democrats had always cheated in that process with big union money – and decided to completely open the process to allow the right to compete.

I point out in that immediately above article:

And understand: the Citizens United case – which Obama demonized and undermined the Supreme Court for deciding – hadn’t happened yet. And the only reason we probably ever GOT the Citizens United decision that Obama demonized the Supreme Court over is because Barack Obama broke his word and massively corrupted the political fundraising system to form the backdrop to which Citizens United came down.

You don’t like the Citizens United decision that opened up the fundraising floodgates even wider than Obama flung them open, Democrats? You have yourselves to blame for it and for a whole hell of a lot of other things by electing an evil malignant narcissist as your president. Because don’t you dare think that the Supreme Court didn’t look at the billion dollar whore who had ripped up all previously mutually agreed upon fundraising rules and standards and concluded that they might as well finish what Obama started.

And then there’s the fact that according to the Democrats’ “logic,” corporations – which are groups of people organizing to build a business – shouldn’t be counted as a “person,” but UNIONS – which are groups of people organizing to tear apart those same businesses – SHOULD BE counted as a “person.” So unions raising hundreds of millions of dollars is good but corporations that are backed by elected boards and millions of shareholders raising money is BAD.

The hypocrisy is astonishing.  The Democrats who are so livid over the injustice of “non-persons” contributing campaign money have greedily taken “non-person” big union money for decades.

Just like a corporation, a union is a group of people organized into a common cause.  So if Democrats want to get “non-persons” out of political contributions, just have them repay the Republican Party every single dime they’ve accepted from unions over the last hundred years, adjusted for inflation and along with componded interest.  And then we can undo Citizens United.  Until then, kindly eat your own fecal matter and die, Democrats.

In the news today is the following headline: “Breaking: Romney/RNC outraises Obama/DNC by nearly $17 million in May.”

Democrats are getting their asses kicked.  And now it’s all suddenly just so unfair and it’s the end of the world and the end of democracy and America just ended.

If you ever wonder why I have such an angry tone, this stuff is an example: there is such a constant stream of pure lies and distortions coming out of the Democrat Party and their mainstream media propagandists on a daily basis that it is positively unreal and proof of Mark Twain’s famous remark that a lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.  And I am sick of the lies.

Scott Walker Wins, Communists (A.K.A. Democrats) LOSE HUGE

June 5, 2012

Democrats are communists, and even the true blue state of Wisconsin has just OVERWHELMINGLY rejected their fascist tactics.

A liberal group used clear voter intimidation tactics to threaten people to vote (Democrat).  “Fascist tactics” is a technically accurate term here.

Democrats do not live in the real world, as what we just saw in Wisconsin proves.  What was the left saying not long ago???

From the überfascist publication The Nation only a couple of months ago:

The Power of Recalls in Wisconsin
John Nichols on March 17, 2012 – 8:31 AM ET

With Wisconsin recall elections looming against four Republican state senators—as well as Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch—the state’s politics was thrown for another loop Friday when a targeted senator up and quit.

State Senator Pam Galloway, a Tea Party favorite and one of Walker’s steadiest backers in the legislature, announced her immediate resignation from the legislature and her decision not to contest the recall election.

The move had dramatic repercussions:

1. Republicans have lost the complete control of state government that allowed the governor to advance an austerity agenda that was defined by attacks on unions and deep cuts in public education and public services funding—along with the harshest voter ID law in the nation, a rigidly partisan redistricting of legislative districts and what critics complain has been a battering of the state’s open-government tradition.

2. State Senate majority leader Scott Fitzgerald, (brother of Assembly Speaker Jeff) a Walker ally who is targeted for recall, has lost his position as the dominant player in the legislature. He now must enter into a power-sharing agreement with minority leader Mark Miller, a progressive Democrats who led a historic walkout by his caucus during last year’s struggle over Walker’s labor law changes. Committee assignments will be redone to reflect what is now a 16-16 split in the Senate.

3. Governor Walker, who has threatened to call special sessions of the legislature to deal with pet projects, will now only be able to do so if he can work with the Democrats—something he has not done up to this point.

4. If, as expected, the federal courts reject the state’s redistricting plan, it could be sent back to a legislature where Democrats can now play a critical role in drawing the maps. That could result in a significant upturn in their fortunes going into this fall’s elections.

5. Republicans have lost their premier candidate in one of four state Senate recall elections that are now scheduled for May 8 primaries and a June 5 election. Galloway had raised major money and organized a campaign of consequence before announcing that family health concerns had led her to exit the legislature. Now, Democrat Donna Seidel, a popular former county official in the Wausau-area district and the assistant minority leader in the state Assembly, emerges as a clear front-runner for a seat that—if she wins—would tip the Senate to full Democratic control.

All of these changes were made possible by the recall power, which allows citizens to petition for new elections. This old progressive tool of accountability was used last summer to force a number of Republican senators who supported the Walker agenda to defend their seats.

Going into last summer’s recall votes, Republicans held a 19-14 advantage in the Senate. Two Republicans were defeated, leaving the GOP with a narrow 17-16 advantage—and giving moderate Republican Senator Dale Schultz the power to temper his party’s excesses. Now, with Galloway’s exit, the chamber goes to the 16-16 split.

After the next round of recalls, it is possible that Democrats could end up with full control of the Senate, potentially by a margin of up to 19-14—or, if Fitzgerald is defeated by upstart challenger Lori Compas, 20-13.

Additionally, a new Democratic Senate could sit with a new Democratic governor, as Walker’s recall is now all but certain to take place on the same day as the senators.

What has happened is remarkable. What could happen is historic. And the people, using the recall power afforded them by progressive reformers of a century ago, are making it happen.

I wanted to post this example of liberals claiming victory in Wisconsin before it got purged with all the rest of their bogus smack talk.

It’s time to eat your cockroach poison and start flailing around wildly on your backs, Democrats.  You just got sprayed with the nasty crap that you were so damned determined to spray on Walker and every Republican you could smear.  And this is what, the third time you’ve had your asses handed to you after previously trying to recall state senators and a judge???

Even in a blue state like Wisconsin, you just got utterly rejected.

As of my sending this out to the world, Walker is up by a massive 20 points with 40% of the precincts reporting.  And the race was called within what?  About forty minutes of the returns coming in???  In a race all the liberals were saying would go to the wire?  This is a state that Obama won by ffifteen points just a few years ago!!!

I guess voters like the guy who created tens of thousands of jobs while taking a $3.6 billion deficit that his Democrat predecessor left for him and turning it into a $150 million surplus without raising taxes.  And I guess they don’t like Democrat politicians who act like cockroaches when the lights get turned on and flee the state rather than vote.

And where was Obama?  The cowardly little political weasel was flying all over doing fundraiser after fundraiser but you could turn over every rock in Wisconsin and you wouldn’t find him supporting the recall that his cockroach minions started last year.  The Slimebag-in-Chief literally flew over the state while going from Minneapolis (where he did three fundraisers) to Illinois (where he did another three fundraisers) so the man who took more money from Wall Street than ANY POLITICIAN IN HISTORY and the man who has raised more money than any cyncial money-grubbing politician in the entire history of the human race could whore himself for more money.

How did Obama lead?  Well, it’s my understanding he sent a tweet.  I guess I’m glad Obama isn’t supporting me, because this is a guy who only knows how to support himself at other people’s expense.  If you’re a Democrat, you truly ought to be ashamed of the turd you elected.

I’ve got to just laugh my very best mocking laughter as the same Democrats who wildly cheered when Obama was raising and spending more campaign money than anyone in human history are now crying and whining that Republicans are outspending them.  It must truly suck to get hung on your own petard.

Every model that Obama’s campaign had for his path to victory counted on Wisconsin.  And that state is VERY OBVIOUSLY now in play for Mitt Romney.  Which is to say that if Obama has to even defend one of the most reliably Democrat states in the nation, well, he’s just starting to look more and more and more like Jimmy Carter.

Update, June 7: Democrats have been whining about the spending gap between Democrats and Walker, claiming something like a $7-$1 dollar difference because of all the conservative money pouring in from across the nation.  The media has widely reported this Democrat talking point.

It turns out that it’s a lie, like pretty much everything else the left says: the fact is that the same media that reported every dollar coming in from conservatives somehow omitted $21 million coming in from the unions.  Which is to say that liberals are furious that their out-of-state money wasn’t as much as the Republicans’ out-of-state money and therefore out-of-state money is anti-democratic even though they tried to raise as much of it as they could themselves.

Vicious Obama ‘They Bring a Knife, We Bring A Gun’ ‘Punish Our Enemies’ Tone In Wisconsin: ‘We’ll Cut Scott Walker’s Head Off!’

April 20, 2012

Barack Obama is the guy who said about his political opponents, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”  Obama is the guy who tried to demagogue racial tension in America by saying, “We’re gonna punish our enemies.”

And of course this same vicious, rabid little weasel tries to demonize his opponents as “extreme.”

Well, the Obama fascist thugs are at it again.

New Tone: Union Rally Speaker Tells Scott Walker ‘We Cut Your Head Off’
by Rebel Pundit 4/19/12

Tuesday, over 2000 union protesters rolled into Springfield, IL, to protest Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, speaking at the Illinois Chamber of Commerce.

Once again they came to chant and sing, and chant and sing they did. It was a typical sea of matching t-shirts—a favored strategy of intimidation—along with their placards of “solidarity” and profane signs. They scattered four giant inflatable rats throughout the crowd, with a gargantuan cardboard cut out of Governor Scott Walker standing out, as well.

Presidents of the AFL-CIO, Michael T. Carrigan of Illinois and Phil Neuenfeldt of Wisconsin, got the crowd riled up, along with the help ofTeresa Haley, President of the Springfield NAACP. But Pastor T. Ray McJunkins of the Union Baptist Church and President of the Faith Coalition for the Common Good and William McNary of USAction stole the show.

McJunkins delivered an energetic address he closed up metaphorically with the story of David and Goliath, ultimately declaring:

We are the Davids …and you may be a big giant, a big goliath, but David had 5 smooth stones that brought Goliath down … all he had was stones and a sling shot, and I just wonder out there among us, how many of you came with your sling today? … Load your slings up today when we leave here, putting a smooth stone of equal rights at the collective bargaining table and throw it at Goliath … And Goliath will come down, Scott Walker we send you back to Wisconsin as David did Goliath, we cut your head off and go back into town, singing a new song!

In addition to McJunkins’ suggestion to behead Scott Walker,William McNary delivered the keynote speech. McNary is a longtime ally of the Communist Party U.S.A. and President Obama. McNary is the President of USAction, a self proclaimed “aggressive progressive” and a frequent speaker at left-wing Union events in Illinois and around the Midwest, including the Communist Party U.S.A.’s 2005 annual convention.

McNary lit up the crowd as he warned the unions to be prepared, “they are gonna call us names now … they are gonna say we are engaging in class warfare … they say this as they lower our wages and cut our benefits, were engaging in class warfare, they say this as they lay off workers and send jobs over seas, we’re engaging in class warfare … They got the nerve that we’re engaging in welfare[sic]? But I got a message for ‘em, the bully Scott Walker and all the bully governors across this country. We didn’t ask for this fight, we didn’t pick this fight, but if it’s a fight you want, it’s a fight you gonna get. Knuckle up! Knuckle up! Knuckle up!” he shouted to the roaring crowd.

Oddly enough, you would think Illinois union members may be more inclined to ask Scott Walker to come to Illinois and bring some of his policies with him. As AFP Illinois points out, “Wisconsin taxpayers still pay much more for healthcare benefits per state employee. WI taxpayers pay $13,972 per employee for healthcare, while Illinoisans pay $11,149 per employee,” and “Wisconsin’s reforms prevented the layoff of thousands of government workers, while here in IL, Gov. Quinn is on track to lay off hundreds of government workers.” But thoughts like those don’t cross these unionists’ minds, and when they do, they are simply dismissed as lies.

Nothing beats a Tuesday morning in the sleepy state capitol of Illinois better than a “non-violent” group of unionists, collectivists and agitators expressing their grievances “peacefully.”

Mind you, things are starting to look up specifically due to Scott Walker’s policies in Wisconsin: property taxes went down for the first time in 12 years - and union thugs are mad as hell about it.

And when the vile little Democrat cockroaches aren’t scurrying around in Wisconsin, they are spreading their hate and their filth to the rest of America via the fascist Occupy Movement.

Democrats aren’t decent people who demand more civil discourse; Democrats are rabid partisan hypocrites who demonize Republicans for hate while simultaneously being far more hateful themselves.

There’s ALWAYS an example of what total abject hypocrites Democrats are.  So of course it was easy to find one that just happened as I’m writing this post.  Here’s Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) showing us what a Democrat looks like (i.e., a complete hypocrite):

In responding to Ellison’s question, one responder compared Romney to a feminine hygiene product: “A heartless douchebag who doesn’t like animals or small children. At least that’s what I’ve heard.”

Ellison, a vociferous proponent of civil discourse, subsequently promoted the message despite said calls for civil discourse.

Ellison, for instance, spoke at length about the need greater civility in politics during an event in February 2011. The congressman has also implored citizens from across the nation to sign a tolerance pledge.

That’s right.  Let’s self-righteously demand that conservatives – who we’ll all agree are total douche bags - treat us with tolerance and respect.

Personally, I’m fine with the anger and the vitriol.  The Democrats are trying to “fundamentally transform America” into a socialist utopia, and it’s way past time somebody was willing to stand up and get in their faces.   You want a fight?  BRING IT!  But what I utterly despise is the fact that the left is maximally hateful even as they constantly attack conservatives for being a fraction as hateful as they themselves are.

Radical Obama Smacked Down Even By ÜberLiberal 9th Circuit Court Over Arizona Voter Law

April 18, 2012

For a “constitutional law professor,” Barack Obama sure doesn’t seem to have the first freaking clue about the Constitution.  Maybe his expertise is in shariah law or something???

When even the most liberal court in the entire nation (conservatives don’t call it the 9th Circus Court for nothing) tells a liberal president and his attorney general he doesn’t have a leg to stand on, I’d call that a smackdown.

BREAKING: Federal Appeals Court Upholds Most of Arizona Voter ID Law
By John Hill on April 17, 2012in Blog, News

In a ruling which demonstrated just how radical is the Obama Administration’s opposition to Voter ID laws, the very liberal U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Arizona’s voter-approved 2004 law requiring voters to show proof of citizenship before receiving a ballot – a big victory in the battle against voter fraud in the runup to the November elections.

The Appeals Court mostly shot down the challenges to the law, which had itself been upheld in Arizona U.S. District Court. Arizona can demand to see certain forms of identification that proves citizenship, the court ruled.

And if someone doesn’t have those forms of ID, paying the fees to obtain the ID isn’t the same as a “poll tax.

However, the court also ruled that Arizona must not refuse federal voter registration forms, which work on the honor system by asking applicants to check a box indicating whether they’re U.S. citizens. Arizona can’t replace that form with its form that requires proof of citizenship, the court ruled. This is a remnant of the ultra-flawed National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (“Motor Voter Act”), which SWA has urged Congress to modify in future legislation.

But overall, the ruling is a major victory for Arizona voters, who overwhelmingly approved the law, and for Americans who support Voter ID laws with 73% support, according to a poll published just yesterday. And it may also be a preview of defeats yet to come for the Obama Administration’s block of state Voter Id laws. including in Texas and South Carolina. Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder have tried to pretend that the Supreme Court never ruled in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board (2008) , which upheld photo ID requirements for voting. But they are destined to lose big when the Texas and S.C. challenges get to the Federal courts.

Left-wing groups, including Chicanos Por la Causa, League of Women Voters, ACLU and Arizona’s patron saint of illegal aliens, Sen. Steve Gallardo had all filed suit, among others. The plaintiffs in the case “did not prove that the ability of Hispanics to participate in the political process was lessened somehow because of the law”, the Ninth found.

Judge Johnnie Rawlinson dissented, finding that Arizona could reject federal voter registration forms in place of its own form. Judge Harry Pregerson also dissented, but for a different reason. He believes the polling-place ID provision discriminates against Hispanics. The plaintiffs may appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

For the official damn record, MEXICO REQUIRES VOTER ID!!!

Mexico’s national voter IDs part of culture
By David Agren, Special for USA TODAYUpdated 1/25/2012 1:18 AM

MEXICO CITY – Office worker Ana Martínez lined up at 7 a.m. on a recent Sunday to renew her voter credential, a document required at a polling station to vote.

But voting was not the main reason she was getting it. The free photo ID issued by the Federal Electoral Institute had become the accepted way to prove one’s identity — and is a one-card way to open a bank account, board an airplane and buy beer.

Voting was almost an afterthought to Martínez.

“They ask for it everywhere,” she said. “It’s very difficult to live without it.”

National IDs for voting, or proving citizenship, is an idea that is being floated in the United States to crack down on voter fraud, illegal immigration and foreign terrorists.

Proponents, such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform, say it is an efficient way to verify identities and prevent crime. Opponents, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, describe it as an invasion of privacy. Minority advocacy groups have even alleged that the cards would frighten minorities going to the polls.

But Mexico has not seen many problems with its card, and national identity cards have been issued for years in France, Poland, Singapore, Brazil, to prove citizenship.

Because so many Americans drive, we actually have something rather similar; it’s called a “driver’s license.”  And I get asked for mine all the time.  Except when I vote when it’s apparently immoral to have to show one.

If the Hispanics that liberals are alledgedly bitching on behalf of returned to their native countries, their countries and the Hispanics who govern them would require them to produce ID in order to vote.  The people who oppose this law do so for no other reason than that they know that if they can’t cheat they can’t win.  And to label those who simply want integrity in the voting system “racists” is the act of a bunch of rat bastards.

It’s like I keep saying: Democrats are bad people who want to have a free hand in lying and cheating.

Congratulations, Arizona.  You stuck up to a tyrant and you won.

All the dang things I’ve got to show my ID for – particularly given the fact that according to the law we are supposed to carry our IDs with us wherever we go – and it’s really quite a mystery why one shouldn’t have ID in order to do something as important and as easy to commit fraud in as voting.

Meanwhile Wisconsin has a bunch of little rodents for judges so they can play games with the SAME DAMN BASIC VOTER ID LAW that even the 9th Court of Appeals said is fine.  Just so they can do everything possible to cheat Governor Scott Walker out of re-election.  Because THIS is the kind of judges who are doing everything they can to use the law as a liberal-fascist weapon against conservatives.

Leftists And Union Thugs Actually Threaten High School Kids For Daring To Chant (When Clearly ONLY Fascist Leftists Ought To Be Able To Chant)

March 26, 2012

Many of us know about the fascist (I think the modern word for it today is “progressive”) public school teachers bringing their students to the Wisconsin State Capitol Building to protest (even though many of them didn’t have the first clue about why they were really there or what they were supposed to protest):

That’s just vile, of course. 

Mind you, it is simply the continuation of a long line of vile fascist liberals being vile fascist liberal progressives:

What Obama, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, And Freddy Krueger ALL Have In Common: Targeting Children

Public Schools Caught Indoctrinating Children Over And Over Again

Planned Parenthood Trying To Pimp 14-Year Old Kids To Work As Sex Education Workers To Further Their Wicked Agenda

More Hitler Youth-Stuff In Our Public Schools: Students Got Extra Credit For ‘Volunteering’ For Obama’s Campaign

And of course just yesterday we heard about the Virginia public school teacher who forced her class to figure out attack strategies against the GOP presidential candidates and then make a plan to contact the Obama campaign to reveal their attack strategies.  You just can’t make this (fascist) stuff up.

But, as is always with the left, it just keeps getting worse with these vile thugs.

Students from a high school went to the Wisconsin State Capitol Building to see their school’s basketball team that happened to be there for the state championship game.  And when they got there, they were confronted by shouting liberal union thug protestors who were mindlessly chanting the way liberals are so often wont to mindlessly chant.  And being kids, the students chanted back:

Wis. High School Students Drown Out Pro-Union Protesters With Chants of ‘Stand With Walker’
Posted on March 20, 2012 at 8:37am by Jonathon M. Seidl

Usually when the media talks about high school kids at the Wisconsin Capitol it’s been about teachers bringing students to protest Wis. Gov. Scott Walker and his budget cuts. But we have some different news to bring you today: during a visit to the Capitol last Thursday, some Wisconsin high school students decided to fight back against the anti-Walker sentiment they were witnessing during an impromptu visit.

Wisconsin Students from Sheboygan Luther Chant Pro Walker Message at Capitol

Pro-union protesters performing a sing-a-long in the Wis. state Capitol.

In short, students from Sheboygan Lutheran High School decided to stop by the rotunda in Madison while in town for the state high school basketball playoffs. While there, they witnessed protesters signing about unions and solidarity. So they decided to drown them out with pro-walker chants.

Wisconsin Students from Sheboygan Luther Chant Pro Walker Message at Capitol

Students from Sheboygan Lutheran drown out pro-union protesters.

The Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-Op has more:

On Thursday March 15, 2012 the afternoon Solidarity Sing Along was taken over by a large group of supporters from Lutheran High School in Sheboygan.

The students, parents and supporters were all in town to participate in the WIAA Boy’s High School Basketball Tournament and arrived at the Capitol for a celebratory rally and to have their photo taken with their legislators. A small group of singers was located on the ground floor of the rotunda for their weekly Thursday afternoon song circle which was quickly drowned out by the thunderous cheers of the LHS group. Shouts of “LHS” and “Stand with Walker” thundered through the rotunda and was met with wide approval from the LHS supporters. One student entered the circle to mock and taunt the singers with dance moves. The extremely loud and boisterous encounter could be heard in the Assembly chambers, where legislative business was still being conducted. 

The Solidarity Sing Along remained calm and peaceful throughout the ordeal and eventually moved outside to continue singing while the rotunda erupted in approval. Later on, several visitors from the LHS group were given a standing ovation by some legislators in the Assembly when they were introduced by their legislators.

Here’s the video:

William A. Jacobson, associate clinical professor at Cornell Law School, notes that some anti-Walker protesters were angered by the students’ move, calling it “hypocrisy.” Jacobson wasn’t having any of that:

Excuse me, did the students take over the State Capitol and refuse to leave, set up camp, damage walls, threaten legislators, crash through police lines, encourage police insurrection, sit down in hallways blocking access, pound on buses carrying legislators, lock their heads to railing, or do any of the other destructive things the anti-Walker protesters did for weeks on end last year? (added) Oh, and did I forget the death threats?

It‘s worth mentioning that from the video we’re not sure if the students broke out into chanting at the prompting of others or if it was organic. But I will say that I’ve been to the Wisconsin state high school basketball playoffs in Madison, and kids chanting is as common as snow in January.

By the way, just days after the students visited the Capitol, Sheboygan Lutheran won the Div. 5 state basketball championship on a last-second three-point shot by the state’s Mr. Basketball, Sam Dekker:

(H/T: Instapundit)

Well, you need to understand something about the left.  They are simply bad people.  Their favorite rhetorical game is to be vile themselves but to publicly demonize anybody who disagrees with them as somehow being beyond the pale (I’ve written about that pathological tendency).  Because they are the kind of fascists thugs who will act like brown-shirted stormtroopers on the one hand, but denounce anybody and everybody who has the unmitigated gall to exercise their own right to free speech on the other.  You can think of Rush Limbaugh getting the “how DARE you?!?” treatment by the left over his comment about Sandra Fluke being a “slut” when the leftist cockroaches are crawling all over themselves attacking Sarah Palin as a “cunt” and a “dumb twat” and sexually attacking her young daughters while other prominent liberal talking heads demonize Laura Ingraham as a “talk slut.”

Aaaaannnnnyyyywaaaaaaaay…

The high school students were met with outrage because how dare you chant when liberals are chanting:

Lutheran students surprised at furor over Capitol visit
5:41 PM, Mar. 20, 2012

When about 300 Sheboygan Lutheran High School students and supporters piled into the rotunda of the State Capitol in Madison last Thursday after the boys basketball team clinched a trip to the finals for the Division 5 WIAA state championship, they had some time to spare.

Sharing the rotunda with a small group of pro-union demonstrators singing songs, the Lutheran High group broke into spontaneous cheers “Stand with Walker!” interspersed with cries of “LHS! LHS!” and the Common Doxology.

The resulting furor since the event has surprised school officials and state Sen. Joe Leibham, a Lutheran High alumnus who invited the group to the Capitol for a photo with the team and a celebratory reception.

“Friday morning, we had a couple of nasty phone calls all of a sudden,” said Jim Pingel, Lutheran’s executive director. “People identified themselves as union leaders, protesters. They were passive aggressive, menacing.”

Liberal activists called the school to complain, and conservative talk radio hosts have spent days discussing the students’ actions. Charlie Sykes of WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee wrote in an online blog post that the students “decided to fight back against the anti-Walker sentiment they were witnessing during an impromptu visit.”

In reality, said Lutheran senior Emily Mech, who was in the group that day, the students were there only to greet the team.

“To me, it seems like it’s being blown of out of proportion maybe a little bit,” said Mech, 17, and senior class president. “But people have a right to ask what happened and figure out the situation. It wasn’t meant at all as huge political protest from Lutheran High. It just was cheering after basketball game.”

But as offended and appalled as the left is that somebody would dare to commit the crime of shouting even though they were not liberal fascists who alone in the world ought to have the sole exclusive right to shout, liberals – being utterly vile as I said – took it to a whole new level even as they simultaneously were casting themselves as the victims:

Wisconsin High School Targeted by ‘Union Leaders’ Over Pro-Walker Chant
Posted on March 22, 2012 at 9:00pm by Mytheos Holt

Wisconsin High School students may want to think twice before expressing their political opinions when union members are present. Apparently the school, whose students shouted pro-Walker slogans while visiting the Wisconsin State Capitol and drowned out union protesters, is now receiving threats from the very unions that some of their students shouted down. The Sheboygan Press reports on this rather petty turn:

The resulting furor since the event has surprised school officials and state Sen. Joe Leibham, a Lutheran High alumnus who invited the group to the Capitol for a photo with the team and a celebratory reception.

“Friday morning, we had a couple of nasty phone calls all of a sudden,” said Jim Pingel, Lutheran’s executive director. “People identified themselves as union leaders, protesters. They were passive-aggressive, menacing.”

Liberal activists called the school to complain, and conservative talk radio hosts have spent days discussing the students’ actions. Charlie Sykes of WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee wrote in an online blog post that the students “decided to fight back against the anti-Walker sentiment they were witnessing during an impromptu visit.”

The students are apparently bemused by the whole thing – the school has a variety of political viewpoints represented, and one student even expressed the opinion that the issue might possibly have been blown out of proportion. Some say the original incident was just an episode of school spirit that coincidentally went political. Whatever the reason, let’s hope union members and activists have bigger fish to fry in Wisconsin than high school students.

Only in a world where the Democrat Party exists can you have thugs calling high schools with threats.

Democrats Seek To Stop Wise Governance: Walker’s Wisconsin Labor Reforms Already Saving Taxpayers’ MILLIONS! Off With His Head!!!

January 26, 2012

Wisconsin Govenor Scott Walker’s policy has already proven he was right and the über fascist left that viciously attacked him was über wrong.  Take a look at some of these articles I’ve done to refresh yourself on Wisconsin (fr0m oldest to most recent):

It’s Working in Walker’s Wisconsin
The governor’s controversial labor reforms are already saving taxpayers millions.

One morning last February, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker called his staff into his office. “Guys,” he warned, “it’s going to be a tough week.” Walker had recently sent a letter to state employees proposing steps—ranging from restricting collective bargaining to requiring workers to start contributing to their own pension accounts—to eliminate the state’s $3.6 billion deficit. That day in February was when Walker would announce his plan publicly.

It turned out to be a tough year. The state immediately erupted into a national spectacle, with tens of thousands of citizens, led by Wisconsin’s public-employee unions, seizing control of the capitol for weeks to protest the reforms. By early March, the crowds grew as big as 100,000, police estimated. Protesters set up encampments in the statehouse, openly drinking and engaging in drug use beneath the marble dome. Democratic state senators fled Wisconsin to prevent a vote on Walker’s plan. Eventually, the Senate did manage to pass the reforms, which survived a legal challenge and became law in July.

The unions aren’t done yet: they’re now trying to recall Walker from office. To do so, they will try to convince Wisconsin voters that Walker’s reforms have rendered the state ungovernable. But the evidence, so far, contradicts that claim—and Wisconsinites seem to realize it.

Back in 1959, Wisconsin became the first state to let public employees unionize. The unions spent the next half-century productively, generating lavish benefits for their members. By the time Walker took office in 2011, the overwhelming majority of state and local government workers paid nothing toward the annual contributions to their pension accounts, which equaled roughly 10 percent of their salaries per year. The average employee also used just 6.2 percent of his salary on his health-insurance premium. Among Walker’s reforms, therefore, was requiring employees to start paying 5.8 percent of their salaries, on average, toward their pensions and to double their health-insurance payments to 12.4 percent of their salaries. These two changes, Walker estimated, would save local governments $724 million annually, letting him cut state aid to localities and reduce Wisconsin’s $3.6 billion biennial deficit.

These measures angered unions, but Walker’s other moves were even more controversial. One was to allow government employees to bargain collectively only when negotiating wages; in other areas, collective bargaining would no longer be part of the contract-making process. The unions screamed bloody murder, decrying the loss of what they called their “right” to collective bargaining. “We are prepared to implement the financial concessions proposed to help bring our state’s budget into balance, but we will not be denied our God-given right to join a real union,” said Marty Beil, head of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, back in February. “We will not—I repeat we will not—be denied our rights to collectively bargain.”

What had the unions most up in arms, however, was a reform that ended mandatory dues for members. Wisconsin unions were collecting up to $1,100 per member per year in these obligatory payments, which they then spent on getting sympathetic politicians elected. In the last two elections, for instance, the state’s largest teachers’ union spent $3.6 million supporting candidates. Walker’s reform meant that government workers could now opt out of paying these dues—savings that could help offset those workers’ newly increased health and pension payments, the governor said. The unions knew that, given the option, many of their members would indeed choose not to write a check—and that this would strangle union election spending.

The unions’ battle against Walker’s reforms has rested on the argument that the changes would damage public services beyond repair. The truth, however, is that the reforms not only are saving money already; they’re doing so with little disruption to services. In early August, noticing the trend, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Milwaukee would save more in health-care and pension costs than it would lose in state aid, leaving the city $11 million ahead in 2012—despite Mayor Tom Barrett’s prediction in March that Walker’s budget “makes our structural deficit explode.”

The collective-bargaining component of Walker’s plan has yielded especially large financial dividends for school districts. Before the reform, many districts’ annual union contracts required them to buy health insurance from WEA Trust, a nonprofit affiliated with the state’s largest teachers’ union. Once the reform limited collective bargaining to wage negotiations, districts could eliminate that requirement from their contracts and start bidding for health care on the open market. When the Appleton School District put its health-insurance contract up for bid, for instance, WEA Trust suddenly lowered its rates and promised to match any competitor’s price. Appleton will save $3 million during the current school year.

Appleton isn’t alone. According to a report by the MacIver Institute, as of September 1, “at least 25 school districts in the Badger State had reported switching health care providers/plans or opening insurance bidding to outside companies.” The institute calculates that these steps will save the districts $211.45 per student. If the state’s other 250 districts currently served by WEA Trust follow suit, the savings statewide could reach hundreds of millions of dollars.

At the outset of the public-union standoff, educators had made dire predictions that Walker’s reforms would force schools to fire teachers. In February, to take one example, Madison School District Superintendent Dan Nerad predicted that 289 teachers in his district would be laid off. Walker insisted that his reforms were actually a job-retention program: by accepting small concessions in health and pension benefits, he argued, school districts would be able to spare hundreds of teachers’ jobs. The argument proved sound. So far, Nerad’s district has laid off no teachers at all, a pattern that has held in many of the state’s other large school districts. No teachers were laid off in Beloit and LaCrosse; Eau Claire saw a reduction of two teachers, while Racine and Wausau each laid off one. The Wauwatosa School District, which faced a $6.5 million shortfall, anticipated slashing 100 jobs—yet the new pension and health contributions saved them all.

The benefits to school districts aren’t just fiscal, moreover. Thanks to Walker’s collective-bargaining reforms, the Brown Deer school district in suburban Milwaukee can implement a performance-pay system for its best teachers—a step that could improve educational outcomes.

Over the summer, a sign surfaced that the public wasn’t as alarmed by the Walker agenda as the unions would have liked. In August, six Republican state senators who had supported the reforms were forced to defend their seats in recall elections. Democrats, in the minority by a 19–14 margin, needed to pick up three seats to take back the Senate. In the days before the election, Wisconsin Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate touted poll numbers showing Democrats leading in three races and in a dead heat in the rest. “Independents are moving towards the Democratic candidates in strong numbers,” he told a group of national reporters. Every race, he claimed, was “eminently winnable.”

The manner in which the public unions ran the campaigns was telling. Because they realized that public-sector collective bargaining wasn’t the wedge issue that they’d expected, not a single union-backed ad mentioned it— even though it was the reason that the unions had mobilized for the recall elections in the first place. Instead, the union ads cried that Scott Walker had “cut $800 million from the state’s schools.” This was true, but the ads neglected to mention that the governor’s increased health-care and pension-contribution requirements made up for those funds, just as Walker had planned. That the unions poured nearly $20 million into the races, by the way, validated another argument of Walker’s: that mandatory dues are a conduit through which taxpayer money gets transferred to public-sector unions, which use it to elect Democrats, who then negotiate favorable contracts with the unions. In this case, the newly strapped Wisconsin unions had to rely heavily on contributions from unions in other states.

In the end, Republicans held four of the six seats and retained control of the Senate. Democrats nevertheless bragged about defeating two incumbents, but that achievement was more modest than it appeared. One of the Republican incumbents was in a district that Barack Obama had won by 18 points in 2008. The other losing Republican had been plagued by personal problems relating to his 25-year-old mistress. Meanwhile, two of the challenged Republicans, Alberta Darling and Sheila Harsdorf, won more decisively than they had in 2008, suggesting that the reforms might be strengthening some Republican incumbents. (The other two senators who kept their seats, Luther Olsen and Rob Cowles, ran unopposed three years ago, so it’s harder to tell whether their popularity has grown.)

The unions’ cause has been hurt by some widely reported stories of public-sector mischief. The most outrageous was the saga of Warren Eschenbach, an 86-year-old former school crossing guard from Wausau. After he retired, Eschenbach, who lives two doors down from Riverview Elementary, kept helping kids cross the road every morning; it gave him a reason to get up each day, he told a local TV station. But the Wausau teachers’ union didn’t see it that way: it filed a grievance with the city to stop him, since he was no longer a unionized employee.

Such stories of union malfeasance may not be enough to save Walker. If the governor’s opponents succeed in mounting a recall election, it would take place at some point between April and June. A poll conducted in October for the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute, where I work, found that Walker had a fairly low personal approval rating of 42 percent. Further, the public opposed recalling the governor from office by a troublingly slim 49 percent to 47 percent margin.

But if Walker’s task is to convince the public that the state hasn’t devolved into unfunded anarchy, he may have an easier case to make than you’d think. According to the same poll, 71 percent of Wisconsinites believe that the state’s public schools have either stayed the same or improved over the previous half-year. More than three-quarters of Wisconsinites expect the state’s economy either to get better or to stay the same in the next year, up from 60 percent during the height of the union tumult in March. And while just 23 percent of Wisconsinites think that “things in the country are generally going in the right direction,” 38 percent of them believe that that’s the case in Wisconsin, up from 27 percent in November 2010.

At his inauguration in 1959—and shortly before he created public-sector collective bargaining—Wisconsin’s newly elected Democratic governor, Gaylord Nelson, quoted Abraham Lincoln: “The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. . . . We must think anew and act anew.” It’s a good thing Scott Walker took his advice. It’s imperative for Wisconsin’s fiscal future that voters take it, too.

If Wisconsin actually votes Scott Walker out of office after he proved that his policies would save the state and create jobs, it will be a poster child for an America that deserves to collapse and fail and die.
