Judges in Milwaukee Cause Crime

If you think that headline is wrong, just read the report.

...[There is] a pattern of defendants – even felons who have shot at people or are drug dealers – [who bail out quickly on a few thousand dollars (median bail in gun court: $5,000), commit new crimes as their cases languish for months (sometimes very serious ones), defy pretrial supervision rules with little more than a judicial scolding (sometimes repeatedly), and often escape lengthy sentences at the end, with about 40 percent avoiding prison time now (not counting stayed terms)....UW-M student study summary quoted at Right Wisconsin.

The students examined 550 cases over a 9-month period.

Yes, indeed.  Milwaukee judges cause crime.  In fact, one could say that they are co-conspirators.  Now you know why the cops and firemen want to get the Hell out of that town.


Bps. Cupich & Farrell Are Losing Moral Authority

It comes as no surprise that Bps. Cupich (Chicago) and Farrell (Dallas) are calling for a ban on the sale of modern sporting/family defense arms such as the AR platform.  Both have reputations.

It should also come as no surprise to those Bishops that very few members of their flock give a flying fig about their opinions of self- and family-defense, or hunting tools. 

Cupich could be addressing the extraordinary murder rate in Chicago; Farrell could be addressing the drug-cartel problems in Texas.

But it's easier to create fake 'morals' problems.

The USCC will be well-advised to remain silent on the matter.

The Usual Suspects Oppose Stepp

Doesn't take long to find the slant and bias in Madison's propaganda-rag "story" on Kathy Stepp's reforms of DNR, does it?  The bugs, bunnies, and bambi crowd runs rampant in Madistan.

DNR has long been used as the Green-Weenie/Radical Left's weapon, just like Obozo's IRS and the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board have been.  

Stepp is in territory salted with hostiles.  (It is not co-incidence that DNR staffers wanted to protect a snake).  She's conducting a re-formation of DNR which will fix its very serious staffing problems--and is taking fire for it.  That's the "no good deed goes un-punished" bromide in real life.

In a related story, the Obozo regime has sent its storm troopers into the fray over Stepp's plans for the Baraboo ammo-works property.  The National Park Service's beak should be bashed, and Walker/Stepp are just the people to do it.

Go, Kathy!!


Useful Idiots: Kennedy, Meeks, Delahunt, Penn, and the MSM

The term "useful idiots" was coined by Joe Stalin who used it to classify idiots who were helpful to the Communist cause.  The US has a lot of them, including (at least) one member of the Kennedy family, a current and extremely corrupt member of Congress, and the usual Left Coast rummies like Sean Penn, whose daddy was a card-carrying Commie.

Where's Senator Joe McCarthy when you need him?

Due to the assistance of these chumps--whether simply stupid or greedy--thousands of Venezuelans are now starving, and tens of thousands more WILL be starving soon.

Our MSM doesn't pay any attention to this, of course.  Can you connect the dots there?


US Border Patrol Smuggling Drugs and People

Border Patrol and US military personnel are smuggling drugs and participating in human trafficking.

...it’s people inside Border Patrol and inside the military who have long been involved in smuggling drugs, as well as smuggling humans. They’re well aware of it. They don’t talk about it much but it’s well known inside. I’ll be doing a story in the Fall about corruption inside the Border Patrol which is just out of control. There’s so many agents. The cartels place people inside Border Patrol now, smugglers place people inside Border Patrol get them hired there. It’s a big issue....

That's Sharyl Atkisson, speaking to Breitbart News.

Feds Arming Up. Got Ammo??

You'll never believe which Fed agency bought all this.

...In the space of eight years, the group amassed a stockpile of pistols, shotguns, and semiautomatic rifles, along with ample supplies of ammunition, liquid explosives, gun scopes, and suppressors. In its cache as well are night-vision goggles, gas cannons, plus armored vests, drones, and surveillance equipment. Between 2006 and 2014, this organization spent nearly $4.8 million to arm itself. Yet its aggressive weapons buildup has drawn almost no public attention....--quoted at ColdFury

Not FBI.  Not IRS. Not even the Blue Pandas.

It is the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, an agency of the US Department of Agriculture.

Never know when some farmer might get a bit uppity, right?

Milwaukee's 3rd-Place Increase in % Homicides

2015 was quite a year for Milwaukee.  The city managed to come in 3rd in the country in the % increase of homicides!!

...While Baltimore had the largest increase in absolute numbers, it had the fourth-largest percentage increase.

Homicides in Baltimore jumped by 58.5 percent last year. Cleveland saw a 90.5 percent increase to lead the nation. Nashville, Tenn., was second with 82.9 percent; Milwaukee was third with 72.6 percent.

Washington finished just behind Baltimore, with a 54.3 percent increase....

Chicago didn't make the Top Five.  But there's always next year, as the Cub fans say.

Self-Serving Swine to Vote for Hillary (!!)

Yah, that's old Hank Paulson, of Goldman Sachs, who shoveled your tax dollars into Goldie.

He knows who butters his bread, and it's Hillary.

Birds, feathers, and shitballs.

College: Not for Learning Anymore

A couple of items have appeared over the last few days which add straw's to the seriously-bending camel's back once thought of as "education" <e-ducere, Latin, 'to lead out...' [of ignorance]>

The U of North Carolina's PC Nazis have declared that reference to the "Christmas Holiday" is a micro-aggression, as is referring to 'boys' or 'girls.'

And The Warrior's head explodes over this one:

...According to [U. of Northern Colorado] documents obtained by Heat Street under Colorado’s Open Records Act, a professor asked his students to read The Atlantic’s “The Coddling of the American Mind” (co-authored by FIRE President and CEO Greg Lukianoff). The piece warns that the growing institutionalization of aversion to presenting views that students may find offensive or disagreeable deprives students of the opportunity to confront views they disagree with. The professor engaged students in a discussion about opposing viewpoints on, among other things, transgender issues, prompting one student to file a Bias Incident Report with university administrators....

The University administration actually took the complaint seriously, admonishing the professor for encouraging debate on the Atlantic's essay.

We have long suspected that university "education" is--by and large--a waste of money.  Seeing the day-to-day work-product of many, many college grads is evidence enough, without even delving into their thinking "ability."

But now we know why:  the Administrations are largely brain-dead.

The Globaloney Crowd Head-Explosion

Bayou RenMan has a very solid essay on Brexit which features the most inane and disconnected editorial I've seen on the topic, from the LA Times.

See how One World twits dissemble, smear, and condescend, their bowties quivering with high dudgeon and their keyboards flecked with wine-and-brie-flavored spittle:

...We find ourselves in a moment of global fear. The democratic identities of Britain and the United States are under threat — not from immigrants or even changing values, but from nationalists and xenophobes exploiting citizens' darkest worries with populist projects, including Donald Trump’s campaign for the U.S. presidency and Brexit....http://bayourenaissanceman.blogspot.com/2016/06/brexit-local-and-national-interests.html

... The same people who cheer when Trump laments the decline of American leadership want to ignore key global issues and put “America First.” The people who voted for Brexit, attempting to create a border between Britain and challenges such as the refugee crisis, seem to think Britain can solve such problems without consulting Germany or France or, worst of all to them, Brussels....

... The world doesn’t work that way, and it hasn’t for decades. Ever-increasing globalization has created an unprecedented surge in prosperity, but it has also ushered in jarring changes. The rough edges of those changes can only be overcome with more aggressive cooperation and engagement, not less
....Quoted at RenMan

It is noteworthy that a number of Labor districts (that's the Brit Lefty gang) voted "leave" while their elected member of Parliament was campaigning for "remain."  This is a direct parallel to the significant "Reagan Democrat" support given to Trump.  Thus, HRC v. Trump polling may be skewed.

He Was Not a Queer. He Was A Muzzie.

The Administration's shiny object--that the Orlando Muslim extremist was really a repressed queer--is coming apart at the seams.

They'll be spreading the "economically disadvantaged" shiny object next week.

The MSM Fever Over "Un-Brexit"

You probably noticed that the MSM is all agog over some 'online petition' for a do-over of the Brexit vote.  The teevee people are near breathless in their excitement about the movement.

What MSM does not tell you is that there's almost no there there.  Really?  3+ million on-line names?  There were 17+ million "leave" votes.  We also know that many of those on-line signatures are from OUTSIDE of England. Wouldn't be surprised to find Obozo and his wife among the signatories....

This is how Certain People attempt to Keep (their) Order.  It's called "propaganda".


Chop-Shop Planned Parenthood Wants More $$

Seems like Obozo & Co. want the world's largest human chop-shop to get more taxpayer money.

And the (R) Congress does not agree.

So--as far as Obozo & Co. is concerned--Zika will be spreading into the US.

Nice.  Either you kill off babies, or they get encephaly.  That's the Democrat way.

Paul Ryan Played This One Right

Some websites of the conservative ilk think Paul Ryan should have swept the (D)  sit-down babies off the floor of the House.

We disagree.  Ryan played this one right.  The images perfectly captured the (D) "mind" for all to see.  It was an embarrassment of the first degree.

Nicely done, Paul.

Brexit Echoes

If the Beltway Crowd still doesn't get the TEA Party phenomenon, all they have to do is read today's global headline.

Fifty-two percent of the Brits just told a bunch of pantywaist Elites in a far-off city to take their regulations, taxes, and immigration policies and shove them where the sun never shines.

mmmmmmmmmmmmkay?

Right to Privacy? "Not!!" Says RoJo

It seems that the (R) Senator from Wisconsin doesn't think too much of your privacy rights.

The Senate rejected legislation Wednesday that would allow the FBI to search Americans' Internet browsing histories and email records without a warrant....

...Senators voted 58-38 to advance the legislation, falling two votes short of the 60 votes needed....

Among those voting FOR this was Ron Johnson, who has forgotten entirely that he's there to repeal ObozoCare.

The Ignorance of Bubba Clinton

It's hard to believe that Bubba actually believes his own bullshit.

...In an interview with Bloomberg TV, the former president was asked to respond to Donald Trump's claim that fewer people would have died at the club if they had firearms. 

"Did you see how dark it was?" Clinton said. "It's likely that more people would have been killed."...

--quoted at AOSHQ--

Yah, muzzle-flash hides in the dark, you monumental jackass.

There's Nothing the Matter With Kansas

Kansas told Obozo & Co. to put their trannybathroom idea where the sun never shines.

Good on Kansas.

Stupid Gun Owner, Care-Less Employer

One of the first things any responsible gun owner learns is when NOT to use the weapon.  This guy will learn that lesson the hard way.

...Officials say two suspects entered the restaurant and pointed a gun at employees. The suspects then stole money from the safe and fled.

One of the employees followed the suspects and fired shots at them....

That was stupid.  So...

...Police tell FOX6 News the Cousin’s employee who fired in this case will be ordered into the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office for endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon....

Yup.

But there's a little more.  Cousins Subs does not allow its employees to defend themselves while on company property or on company time.

...The employee acted contrary to our policy, which states that all staff are prohibited from having possession of a weapon while on company property or while on company business....

Apparently Cousins could care less about the lives of its employees, eh?

Hillary Harridan Rodham Clinton

Apparently the book is lurid. 

But from what we've seen, none of it should come as a surprise.

Islam-ist or Obama-ist?

Interesting little note from an article about Omar's daddy:

...AMA [another Muslim propaganda club] no longer exists as a registered nonprofit and it last filed tax returns in 2010. But the organization continues to maintain an activeFacebook account. In its posts, the AMA refuses to consider any Islamist motivation for the attack and lays the blame for Omar Mateen’s massacre which killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub solely on the country’s lax gun laws....

Sounds familiar, eh?  It's not the religion of jihad, it's the gunzzzzz!  Apparently these guys are writing the scripts for the Democrat/Obama-ist party as a sideline.

Steve Hargarten, MD, AGAIN!

As predictable as cold in a Milwaukee winter, Dr. Steve Hargarten calls murders a public 'health' crisis.

Well, it is a crisis, I suppose.  But Dr. Steve is confused.

This is a moral health crisis, which Steve should have learned from his Jesuit teachers.

ObozoConomy, Part XXIV

Jim Quinn, quoted at ZeroHedge:

...We only need the other 7.4 million “officially” unemployed Americans to leave the work force and we’ll have 0% unemployment. At the current pace we should be there by election time…. Not one single full-time job has been added in 2016. There were 6,000 less full-time jobs in May than in January, while there are 572,000 more low paying, no benefits, part-time Obama service jobs...

'S wunnerful, ain'a?

Obozo, Hillary, and the Muslim Brotherhood

Three peas in a pod, apparently.  Bear in mind, this is Justin Raimondo; but he brings in heavy mortars when you scroll down.

...in the wake of the Orlando massacre, Donald Trump said the following on Fox: “Something is going on. He doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other.” Reiterating this trope later on in the same show, he averred that the President “is not tough, not smart – or he’s got something else in mind.” The Beltway crowd went ballistic. Lindsey Graham had a hissy fit, and other Republican lawmakers started edging away from the presumptive GOP nominee....

Yah, we all know that.  But, well, on the other hand....

...a 2012  intelligence report from the Defense Intelligence Agency predict[ed] the rise of the Islamic State in Syria – and showing how US policy deliberately ignored and even succored it. Secured by Judicial Watch thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, the document says it’s very likely we’ll see the creation of “an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria.” And this won’t just be a grassroots effort, but the result of a centrally coordinated plan: it will happen because “Western countries, the Gulf states and Turkey are supporting these efforts” by Syrian “opposition forces” then engaged in a campaign to “control the eastern areas (Hasaka and Der Zor) adjacent to Western Iraqi provinces (Mosul and Anbar).

Oh.  Really?

Yes, really.  It's not just Raimondo, folks.

 ...Gen. Michael Flynn, who headed up the DIA when the document was produced and who was forced out by the interventionists in the administration. Here is what Flynn told Al-Jazeera in an extensive interview:
Al-Jazeera: “You are basically saying that even in government at the time you knew these groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?

Flynn: I think the administration.

Al-Jazeera: So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?

Flynn: I don’t know that they turned a blind eye, I think it was a decision. I think it was a willful decision.

Al-Jazeera: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?

Flynn: It was a willful decision to do what they’re doing.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a bad bunch, but they have Obozo's ear.  (Who knows, they might have other body parts of his, too.)

Lots of pundits have explained that Obozo is just really, really, really stupid.  Well, maybe he is.  But he's also really, really, really anti-American.  That's not a good combination.

Is GS4 (Formerly Wackenhut) Sloppy, or Fraudulent?

Seems like GS4 "made a booboo" when they stated that Omar Mateen had been run past a shrink.

Or maybe they just ....ahhhhh.....lied.

The Donald Is Stuck on Stupid, Again

While we are sympathetic with some of The Donald's rants, it's clear that he should not be President.  Not even Vice-President.  Let him be the Mayor of New York City, which deserves him.

Anyhow.

Today Donald Trump went all in, again, in support of the "No Fly, No Buy" plan that Democrats are pushing and filibustering about in the wake of the Orlando terror attack. Speaking with ABC's Jon Karl in an interview that will air Sunday morning, Trump said "it's just simpler."...

Hell's bells, Donald.  It's "simpler" to trash the ENTIRE Constitution and be King.  Obama's trying his damndest to do that.

What's "simple", Donald, is your alleged mind.  

You Will Be MADE to Care

Eric Erickson and the gang at RedState have used that phrase 'you will be made to care' a number of times, because it fits.

And here it is again.

The State of Mississippi passed a law which defends the rights of 'gay' couples to become "married."  (Inane, but that's Justice Kennedy's middle name.)  In the same law, Mississippi also protected the right of public officials NOT to perform these ceremonies.

ACLU and the other Usual Suspects sued.  Those public officials--in the alleged 'mind' of ACLU--do NOT have rights.  They must bend over and provide the Vaseline, just like the gays do.

You Will Be MADE to Care.

The Pope's Spittle-Flecked Nutty

Ed Peters makes it very clear:  Pope Francis doesn't really get it.

In fact, it required three short posts for Peters to demonstrate his point.  And a fourth to admonish H.H. for his ill-chosen slam-language on priests.

Meantime, a bloglodyte suggests that a certain nearby priest doesn't get it, either.  We agree with the bloglodyte.  "Teaching" happens in lots of ways.  Pp. Francis is--at the least--teaching us that sloppy, ill-informed language is acceptable from the highest moral authority on Earth.

It ain't.

Bloomberg: Un-persuasive on Guns

One is not surprised to learn that Bloomberg's editors stand with the radicals on 'gun control.'  Of course, they work carefully to seem bipartisan and reasonable.  But in the end it's the same old song:  trust Gummint.

More specifically, Bloomberg would trust the "no-fly" list, as proposed by Feinstein and King.  And since we all know that the no-fly list is chock-full of errors, they kindly allow for appeals.  Wow.  Innocent people have been appealing their placement on that list and have not succeeded.  Or if they have, it has taken years.  Bloomberg knows this and attempts to get around it by yammering about 'no rights to convenience.'

In other words, they changed the subject.  "Convenience" is not the question.  The fundamental right to self-defense and the right to overthrow oppressors is the question.  And when some flunky twit "erroneously" (or maliciously) puts one's name on a Prohibited Persons list--that's oppression.

Neither Feinstein/King nor the Cornyn proposal are going anywhere, of course.  Even if they did, terrorists and criminals would continue to be armed.  But so will the good guys, no matter the whining from Bloomberg.

One more thing:  buying a cupcake is not a fundamental right, no matter the "mind" of the Bloomie editors.  But let's try this one:  printing drivel in the press should be done only by licensed-and-approved people.   Because printing drivel is like buying cupcakes.

Going to the Olympics? Consider Concealed Carry

Interesting note in the news.

...just 49 days before the start of the Olympics, the Rio state government declared a state of "public calamity" (yes, that's the technical term) warning of a risk of total collapse in public security, health, transport and virtually everything else, because as the local government explained, the financial crisis is preventing it from fulfilling its requirements for the Games....

I'm sure that Congress will bail them out.  It's Who We Are, ya'know.

On Brexit and Paul Ryan: Is America Second?

Ace neatly develops the theme found in McArdle's short essay, to wit:  who the Hell are these people who care about 'others' first?  McArdle is discussing Brexit, but relates it to the US.

...For the first few centuries of its existence, America had a chronic labor shortage, which eased any frictions with new arrivals. We also lacked a modern welfare state, to which low-skilled immigrants are likely to be net costs rather than net contributors. I heard the strain on the National Health Service cited multiple times this weekend as a sore spot for Brexiteers, and though the “Remain” campaign says “You’ve got it all wrong, the problem is Conservative budget cuts,” this rather aggressively misses the point: When things are hard, immigrants compete with natives for scarce government resources, and the natives don’t like the competition....

Umnnhhhh....yes.  Ace is a lot more forceful.  (Note:  Ace has a sight problem, so the spelling is left as in the original.)

...Her major point is that the elites of UK and Euorpe -- and, by implication (though she's delicate about it) the US -- have decided that "nationalism" is crude and kin to racism, and therefore, there is no longer any legitimate reason to favor a fellow citizen over a foreigner. To favor the former over the latter is a crude tribalism close enough to "racism" to be racism, for all intents and purposes....

...If a US citizen and a foreign immigrant find themselves in competition -- as all things in life find themselves in competition, outside the babytalk liberal babblings that we're all on the same team -- and the foreign immigrant wins out, well, that's not really anyone's problem but the citizen who lost out. Other US citizens should not have been rooting for the US citizen to prevail, nor think it a bad thing that he lost. To harbor such Pro-US-Citizen sympaties is inherently Racist....

See, That's Not Who We Are.  Right?  And speaking of Paul Ryan...

...At some point, people will believe you when you keep telling them you have higher priorities than looking out for their interests.

Is there a single American out there who believes the radical Randian Paul Ryan is actually looking out for Americans ?...

Now that is a very damn good question.  In fact, it is the question which got The Donald to where he is:  about to pull down the pillars which supported the Republican Elite.

I had asked the question earlier--in a passing-thought sort of way--just exactly what IS wrong with "America First"?  And, like Ace, I do not mean that in a jingoist sense; but rather, in the sense that "America Second" is a rather stupid way to run this country.  I have yet to hear an answer aside from vague and snide references to 'Lindbergh'.  The fact that John F. Kennedy was a member of the "America First" bunch escapes the memory of the "America Second" crowd.

Isn't that a puzzle?

Gov. Abbott: "Let's Have Article 5 Convention!"

Now let's see what Gov. Walker has to say about that, eh?

See BS, Again

Seems that the See BS teevee folks didn't learn much from the Dan Rather Experience.

Now they're running straw-buys of weapons.

The gun store where a CBS News employee purchased a gun for a segment that aired yesterday on “CBS This Morning” has filed a report with the Virginia State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives over concerns the purchase was unlawful....

Naturally, BATF is going sideways on the complaint.

...“ATF is aware of the story, however, the details and the outcome of the sale in question is unclear and it is not evident if a violation occurred,” Corey Ray, ATF spokesperson, told the Washington Free Beacon....

Uhhmmnnnhhhh, no.  It's a criminal violation ipso facto, not dependent on circumstances or results.  Just like Hildebeeste's national security violations, merely doing the deed is criminal; no mens rea required.

The (D) Party Also Hates the Fifth Amendment

The Democrat/Progressive Machine despises the First Amendment (religion), the Second Amendment (overthrowing oppressors), and now (ta da!!) the Fifth Amendment (innocent until...).

(To be fair, both parties also despise the 9th and 10th Amendments.  They get in the way of Absolute Power.)

Here's a (D) 'leading light' on the Fifth:

“The problem we have, and the firewall we have right now is due process, it’s all due process,” [Sen.] Manchin [D] said.

It's not the Fifth.  It's the Obozo Regime handcuffing the FBI, as Sheriff Clarke and others have made very clear.

Yes, all those rights get in the way.  So kiss my ass, Manchin.

Paul Ryan Goes D.C. Native

Paul Ryan is demonstrating that he's nothing more than an artful liar--and he's not too good at that, either. 

In an interview with Bill O'Reilly, Ryan said that the House passed a bill limiting Somali immigration.  That was not true.

Worse:  the bill that the House DID pass wasn't worth the toilet paper it was written on.

...As National Review’s Rich Lowry explained at the time, the Ryan-championed House bill “when you get down to it, it doesn’t do anything,” Lowry wrote in a piece entitled, “Uh, the House Bill to Pause the Syrian Refugee Program Doesn’t Really Pause the Syrian Refugee Program.”...

In other words, Ryan has 'gone native D.C.' and is playing 3 Card Monte with the voters suckers.  Nonetheless, Ryan will continue to be worshiped by some RadioMouths, I suppose.
