RoJo's Mercantilist Problem

We've run hot and cold on Senator Ron Johnson ever since he got elected.  McConnell appears to have stomped all over "Rebel Ron" within 12 months of his first election, and he learned how to be a good little Establishment player, albeit somewhat conservatively oriented.  (If you want play-by-play on RoJo's elected career, simply search "RoJo" on this blog.) 

Anyhow.  RoJo has been thinking about being Governor of Wisconsin.  So he spoke to a gaggle of commercial real-estate agents. 

What did Ron have to say?

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson argued for shipping more manufacturing jobs overseas this week in a presentation to commercial real estate agents. 

The Republican from Oshkosh described the ability to outsource manufacturing jobs as one of the benefits of the global economy. 

"From my standpoint, when we don’t have enough workers in this country right now, that’s a real limitation to our economic growth," he said, according to a video of the event. "To me, it makes no sense for American workers to produce high-labor-content products. Let the billions of people around the world do that and provide us these goods — high quality, dirt cheap.

"That to me is economically efficient. Unfortunately, we’re probably going to retrench from that, that type of policy, and I don’t see how it’s going to particularly work."...

Ron's tin god is "economically efficient" mercantilism.  It's a black-magic theory that impoverishes everyone it touches.  He's also in La-La-Land about "high quality", as all sorts of US manufacturers will be happy sad to tell you.  You know, the ones who agreed to Specification A and found they were getting Specification B--without notice--after the warranty claims started piling up. 

But I digress.

You know why "there aren't enough workers" in the US, Ron?  Because "workers" saw the jobs going offshore and knew that their children would not HAVE jobs here--so why have children?  That's a part of it--not all of it--but it's definitely in play.

Offhand, Ron, I don't think that sort of talk is going to defeat Rebecca Kleefisch in a primary.  But--given what we know--maybe that's for the best.

Racial Unity!! and Trump Wins!

Despite the best efforts of Barky Obama and his Marxist/Anarchist pals, there is a great deal of unity among the racial groups in the USA.

Here's the setup narrative from Ace:

Trump says things which are true and which need public/governmental attention. Things like: "We need to capture and deport illegal alien criminals, especially gang members, so they can't harm actual Americans."

Because this is so obviously true and so motivating a point, the Democrats and the media try to discredit it by labeling it a "racial dog whistle."

How is that strategy of labeling true and important policy goals "racial dog whistles?"

Let's check the tape:

Now he quotes from a NYT story on a report commissioned by the Democrat Party's race-mongering staff:

Another data point they found "even more sobering": Llpez and Gavito asked eligible voters how "convincing" they found a dog-whistle message lifted from Republican talking points. Among other elements, the message condemned "illegal immigration from places overrun with drugs and criminal gangs" and called for "fully funding the police, so our communities are not threatened by people who refuse to follow our laws."

As they expected, "almost three out of five white respondents judged that message convincing."


More disconcerting to Lopez and Gavito, both liberals, was that
"exactly the same percentage of African-Americans agreed, as did an even higher percentage of Latinos....

Nobody with half a functioning brain EVER thought that blacks and latinos were in favor of importing drug criminals, or rapists, or murderers, or extortion artists.

That's why the Democrat Party management DID think so.  They are utterly, completely, totally, and irrevocably racist whores.  They deserve what they're going to get on 11/3. 

By the way, the rest of Ace's essay is extremely encouraging.  Over/under is 35 States or so.

Chatter Out There on Clinton, Weissman, Weiner

Ace agglomerates a few threads from very reputable reporters and is beginning to believe that something's going to happen.

Durham apparently now has his nose into the Clinton Foundation/Uranium One thing, the Weiner porn-pic-cum-Clinton email computer, and--of course--the various FEEBS and US Attorneys who co-operated to squash all the stories.

Frankly, I don't care if Donald Trump walks up and down Fifth Aveune naked for the entire duration of his second term, so long as Hillary, Bill, Brennan, Comey, (et. al.) go to prison for life, no parole.

Malcolm X Was Right

Good ol' Malcolm X had this dead-nuts correct.

In the video at the link, X states that 'white liberals' are the most dangerous enemies of black people in the US.

Ask any black trying to survive in Democrat-run cities, for starters.

Question on MKE Police "Report"

The newspaper fails to provide context.  Surprised?

In Milwaukee in 2019, Black people were eight times more likely to be pulled over and seven times more likely to be frisked by police compared with white people, according to a newly released report.

And on top of that, Milwaukee Police Department officers provided sufficient, documented justification for less than a quarter of the frisks they conducted in 2019....

OK.  How many 911 calls were made describing a "black/armed/prowler/mugger/vandal/abuser/car thief"?

Eight times more often that 911 calls describing a "white/Oriental/Hispanic/armed/prowler/mugger/vandal/abuser/car thief?"  Six timesTen times?

Inquiring minds and all that.

Ben Crump Cred Crashes in Ky.

 An attorney named Ben Crump, who represents himself as a 'civil rights' lawyer, has a problem.

The media claimed Breonna Taylor was shot during a “no knock” warrant – False.
The media claimed Breonna Taylor was shot in her bed – False.
The media claimed Breonna Taylor was murdered – False.

Everything the media and lawyer Ben Crump claimed about the death of Breonna Taylor and the circumstances around her death was based on lies. The officials in Kentucky allowed a mountain of lies to grow until the evidence was finally presented to a grand jury and the Kentucky Attorney General was forced to admit the truth.

According to evidence revealed at a press conference by AG Daniel Cameron, the police executed a search warrant by knocking on the door. Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend Kenneth Walker refused to answer the door after the police identified themselves. The police broke down the door. Kenneth Walker was armed and shot first at police. The police returned fire and that’s how Breonna Taylor was shot and killed. ...

Crump is also representing Jacob Blake, who was injured after resisting arrest and threatening police with a knife in Kenosha.

Make certain that you use at least two different sources before you accept the word of these people.


Trump: America!!

Probably the first America-loving President since Ike.

A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I've expanded that ban to people and companies that do business with our Country, the United States Military, Government Contractors, and Grantees. Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t, there’s nothing in it for you!

Wonder if he can apply some monetary discipline to the NEA/AFT?

Amy Barrett: Enemy of Civil Liberties?

There's a lawyer out there who REALLY doesn't like Amy Barrett's stand on civil liberties, beginning with her rejection of "strict scrutiny" for religious liberty cases, and walking through her police conduct/use of force defenses, and her smackdown of anti-abortion sidewalk counselors in Chicago.

Barrett is also on the record stating that Roe v Wade is precedent that should stand.

Odd thing to say when dozens of jurists and lawyer-commentators have decried Roe as a horribly-reasoned decision which deserves the fate of Plessy or Dred Scott.

Hmmmm.

Evers' Prison Problem

Tony Evers seems to have a prison problem.

...According to prison officials, the latest incident began about 10:45 a.m. Aug. 1 when eight teens broke away from those escorting them across the prison grounds after a recreation period.

Using basketballs and debris, they broke out the windows of living units, allowing others to get into the prison yard. Some climbed on the roofs of living units, as they have in past incidents. 

The size of the group grew to as large as 24 before guards and law enforcement officials put a stop to the incident more than six hours after it started....

The Little Darlings don't like windows?

Fine.  Brick up all the windows in the facility.  No need to impose windows on these lads. 

New Signs for City of Milwaukee

 You know those green-and-white signs which tell you you're entering a city?  The ones that say "Milwaukee  Population 580,000"?

Well, under Truth-In-Signs legislation, that should now read:

"DANGER!!  DO NOT ENTER!!  Milwaukee, Population 580,000"

Why?

Milwaukee would lose 120 police officer positions through attrition under Mayor Tom Barrett's proposed $1.55 billion 2021 budget, which he presented to the Common Council on Tuesday....

Rumor has it that Barrett will be funding more Social Workers instead. 

Pelosi: Pubbies "Coming After Your Children"

Can't wait until I see one of my Democrat co-workers to ask him about this.

Nancy Pelosi brought fear-mongering to a new level, accusing President Trump and Republicans trying to fill a vacant Supreme Court seat of “coming after your children.”...

...Pelosi (D-CA) accused the GOP of trying to fill the seat left vacant after the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a means to take away clean air and clean water. Not to mention LBGT protections...

Yah, well, my chilluns are armed, Abortion Barbie.

Yup, God Did This

 Think "God" isn't a big deal?

Think again.


Facts on WuFlu That Evers Buries

Every damn night we have to look at some MD from the State or Milwaukee County telling us that The End Is Near!!  Prepare to DIE!!!  This is what the national Democrat Party has ordered, because the last thing they want is a flourishing economy. 

Well, here's Actual News which Tin-Pot Tony and his publicity machine "nooz" people don't want you to know.

On two separate occasions in recent weeks, we’ve presented data that indicate the crisis is winding down. No, this doesn’t mean that infections and deaths will drop to zero. The virus isn’t going away. What it does mean is that the virus isn’t the threat it was when deaths spiked in the middle of April.

This is primarily based on deaths in excess of the expected numbers of fatalities. The Centers for Disease Control chart below shows that total deaths, the blue bars, have fallen below the threshold for excess deaths....

 ...we feel its important to reiterate that COVID-19 is not fully responsible for the death total that surged past the expected threshold. The lockdown response has been deadly.

“Federal data show deaths in 2020 have exceeded those of previous years in numerous categories,” the Wall Street Journal reported last week. “Doctors and health researchers say the fatalities reflect the ways the pandemic has amplified stress and financial strain while causing many people to avoid hospitals for fear of infections.”...

You can see the chart and read the rest at the link.

The Chinese Flu will be around for a long, long, time; we have to accept it, just as we accept floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires.

But we do NOT have to accept Stupid Governor Tricks.

 

Buh-Bye, Seattle!

Fortunately, we've already been to Seattle for sightseeing.  It was a nice place.

The Seattle city council voted on Tuesday to override the mayor's veto of a bill to defund the Seattle Police Department, voting, again, to defund SPD.

This will cut the cop-shop by about 100 sworn officers.

Next:  Seattle secedes from Washington and the US?

Rittenhouse Shoot: MORE Video

Tucker Carlson has previously unseen video on the Rittenhouse shootings in Kenosha.

In the last week, we've heard bleating and whining about the "humanitarians" who, in reality, threatened Rittenhouse with deadly force, as you'll see in these videos.  It's no accident that the bleating and whining came out recently; the Chicago lawyers representing the families knew that these were going to be made public.

Contrary to the unhinged yammering of a certain local RadioMouth, Kyle was there as a Good Samaritan, not to impose "vigilante" justice.  

These videos go a long, long, way toward proving that. 

Here's another site with the same stuff.


Conley's Voting Rule: WORSE Than You Think

William Conley (a totes and studiously impartial Obama guy, swearsies!!) ruled that Wisconsin's Election Day mail-in vote deadline is wrong.  Knowing that his ruling would get to the 7th Circuit pronto, he put a stay on the damn thing to prove that he's really, really, really, fair.

Uh-huh.

So then someone actually read the footnotes.

A ruling Monday by a federal judge in Wisconsin that would extend the counting of mail-in ballots six days beyond Election Day would also allow those ballots to be counted even if there is no “definitive” sign of a postmark....

[quoting the decision]..."it is this court’s view that local election officials should generally err toward counting otherwise legitimate absentee ballots lacking a definitive postmark if received by mail after election day but no later than November 9, 2020, as long as the ballot is signed and witnessed on or before November 3, 2020, unless there is some reason to believe that the ballot was actually placed in the mail after election day."...

Democrat "Ballot Parties"  have already commenced.  Dozens of Buicks (large trunk variety) have been lined up to transport ballots "lacking a definitive postmark" to Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, and LaCrosse county clerks for processing between November 4th and November 9th.

The reason for 11/4-11/9 timing?  Simple.  Clerks will report (preliminary) results late on 11/3.  Democrats will then know how many forgeries and frauds they must manufacture to "win" on 11/9.

But Conley is an Honorable Man, right?

 

Cash-Flow Problem for Biden Voters

While Bloomberg and Soros contribute millions to Florida felons so they can vote, other Biden voters are having cash-flow problems.

...[Customs and Border Patrol] officers working ports of entry around the country seized $93,302,645 in unreported currency during the first 11 months of Fiscal Year 2020, Breitbart Texas’ Jaeson Jones reported. This is up substantially from the totals of each of the previous five years....

Next:  the IRS moves in for its cut!

DeSantis: The Anti-Evers

 Once upon a time in a great land, there were two Governors.  One of them was not like the other.  In fact, one of them was the "anti" of the other.

Here's one of them:

DeSantis told reporters during a news briefing at the Polk County Sheriff's Office the bill would charge protesters with felonies for damaging property and inflicting injuries, as well as sentence them to mandatory jail time for hitting a law enforcement officer. The bill, which state lawmakers will consider during next year's legislative session, would also bar protesters who commit crimes from receiving state benefits or working for the state....--AOS quoting Politico
I've been to Polk County, FL.  That's a "FAAFO" County if there ever was one, and that's why DeSantis was there.



J. E. Dyer on The Coup

 J. E Dyer is The Optimistic Conservative and a retired Naval Intel Officer.  Pay attention!

She notes the (D) reaction to the passing of Ginsburg.

...The bottom line up front: for the Democrats, the operational problem is not how to “win the election” and “keep a new Supreme Court justice from being confirmed.”

The problem is how to weave those now-scheduled decision points into what Lee Smith has dubbed the Permanent Coup.*  For the Democratic Party of 2020, running the Permanent Coup is their guiding purpose.

To define their purpose as “winning the election” is to lag the OODA loop and never catch up with it, much less “get inside” it.  The view from inside the Democrats’ OODA loop is this one: come what may, they don’t intend to lose their bid to regain the levers of power.  That’s a more accurate reading of the end-state they have in mind....

In evidence, Dyer submits the following:

1. Their formal candidate, Joe Biden, is neither their leader nor in charge of his own campaign.  ...  It tells us for one thing that the key condition exists for a Bolshevik revolution: a major party that is not, in the most meaningful sense, what it represents itself to be.

2. Nor is the vice presidential candidate – an unpopular, low-polling also-ran with no power base – the leader.  The leader is former President Obama, a person not eligible to be elected president again.

3. The terrain they are fighting on isn’t about “winning the election” in a conventional sense, by appealing to a broad section of voters on policy concerns.

4. They will use any means necessary to regain power, in the White House at a minimum. 

Ooooh.  That's nice.

Here's the counter-intuitive thinking that made Dyer famous:

...They recognize the convenience of the constitutional timeline for creating exploitable opportunities (in 2020, an election), and conditioning the thinking of the voting public and the Republicans.  But at the decision points that matter to their goal, we can be pretty sure they won’t regard themselves as constrained by the constitutional timeline.  They’ll be ready to breach it if they have to.

That means they don’t have to wait to launch the final assault.  It’s a good bet they will refrain from tipping their hand too obviously for the time being, as that keeps people mentally unalerted.  But the important point to keep in mind is that the constitutional timeline isn’t a constraint on their expectations.  It’s a constraint on yours....

Actually, Dyer is very optimistic about the end result because she believes in the power of prayer (!!)

...No Bolshevik revolution has ever been attempted where virtually the entire population knew itself free to relate to God as it saw fit.  America makes it possible for religion itself to not repress religion.  Regardless of what faith they adhere to, or don’t, people can’t be forced into rote orthodoxies, under brittle, politicized religious power structures.  Denominations and sects in any faith can disagree without blowing each other up or burning each other at the stake....

Yup.  Read the whole thing.  Then use (or clean and load) ALL your weapons, including a Rosary.


 

Tin-Pot Tony Strikes Again. Laughter Begins

Another feeble punch swung by Evers, who is begging citizens for complete and total disrespect.  Synopsis from the "nooz:"

People need to wear a mask while indoors, unless you're inside a personal residence.

Children under age 5 are not required to wear masks, but are encouraged to do so.

Other exemptions include members of the state Legislature and the state judiciary, as well as people eating and drinking, speakers at religious services, reporters delivering news reports and people who have breathing issues, among others. 

Spaces included in the order, aside from businesses and workplaces, are outdoor bars, outdoor restaurants, taxis, public transit, ride-share vehicles and outdoor park structures. ...

Last time this happened, Robin Vos declared VICTORY!! and stayed home, leaving the State's citizens in the lurch.  Smooth move, Robin!

But since members of the Legislature are excluded from this cartoon-order, Robin doesn't care.  Smooth move, Robin.

Also interesting that "reporters" are not subject to this violation of civil rights.

Observation from traveling around the southern half of the State during the last several weeks:  only about 1/2 of the people we saw were wearing them, but that's trended up from July when it was only about 1/4th.  However, we're near the Big City which is filled with fearful feminines of both sexes.

*Shock* Conley Smashes State Laws, Again

A Madistan resident (enough right there) Fed judge smacked down common-sense Wisconsin election law, again.

A federal judge on Monday gave Wisconsin voters an extra six days to get their absentee ballots back to election clerks this fall in a broad decision that also will make it easier to hire poll workers.

Anticipating an appeal was likely, U.S. District Judge William Conley immediately stayed his ruling, writing that it wouldn't go into effect for at least a week. If higher courts uphold his decision, the nation will have to wait for a week after Election Day to get full presidential results in a crucial swing state....

Conley managed to insult "Wisconsin voters" by implication that they aren't smart enough to mail their ballots on time.  Nice!  

But there's more!!

... for this fall, he said clerks could immediately begin reporting their results, even though they will continue to receive valid ballots for six more days....

So the professional Vote-Cheat Party will know exactly how many ballots to "find" in various PO boxes around the State.

Smooth move, judge!

CDC's Back-and-Forthright "Aerosol" Guidance

And here we go again!!

After publishing guidance warning about the serious risks of "airborne" infection associated with SARS-CoV-2, the CDC just seriously harmed its own credibility by acknowledging Monday that it had posted the new guidance "in error", following a pressure campaign from the WHO.

Scientists have been gathering evidence that the novel coronavirus plaguing the world spreads via aerosol particles practically since it first emerged, and back in July, a group of 200 scientists sent a letter to the WHO urging the international public health agency to change its guidance on the spread of the disease. The problem scientists argued is that the WHO hasn't updated its views to incorporate new research showing that aerosol spread is a much greater threat than touching contaminated surfaces, or via large droplets spread by close contact between individuals.

Yet, the WHO has refused these overtures, and this week it successfully convinced the CDC to do the same...

 However, you should continue to sneeze into the crook of your arm.  Or into a handkerchief.  Or something-or-other, but unless the mask is tight-fitting, 200,000,000 people will be dead.

You know the thing.

Reinhold Niebuhr, Racist

Apparently Reinhold Niebuhr was.......ahhh........not enthused about Latin Americans.  He's that guy with the "First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out/ Because I was not a socialist" quote.

He didn't mention South Americans because it appears he was coming for them.

Scroll down a bit, past the material about Ms. Cordelia Scaife May (Mellon Bank) and go to the photocopy of the NYT advertisement.  Yup.  Right there in the "signature" section..........along with Jimmy Cagney and Harold Bostrom (Bostrom Seating, Milwaukee).

Who knew?

Bp Callahan Will NOT Lift "Dispensation"

In addition to publicly flogging Fr. Altman, the Bishop of LaCrosse has decided not to lift the dispensation from the Sunday obligation.

He cites 'numbers of co-vid cases' as the excuse along with difficulty 'maintaining social distance' in the churches of the Diocese.

"Cases" (really, positive tests) are up in EVERY college-town in Wisconsin, and LaCrosse is a college town.  Madison, Eau Claire, and Green Bay ALL have seen large pops in positives in the last 10 days.

Does the Bish think that all those college kiddies go to Mass every Sunday?

Something's going on here and it doesn't smell good.

Tech Liars on H-1B and Trump

Norm always provides the facts on matters of H-1B policy.

A group of 35 “tech pioneers” have issued a public statement endorsing Biden, citing objections to Trump’s immigration policies. Of course, their focus is the H-1B work visa and related programs...

They claim that the 'best and brightest' are going to 'other countries' because Orange Man Bad.

Norm shreds them at the link.

By the way, will Kohl's lay off the 400 or so H-1Bs sucking up US jobs at its headquarters?

Wassup With Fox News and Soros?

It would seem that naming names--especially the name "George Soros" will lead to your early death at Fox News.

Notice that Joe DeGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing haven't been appearing on Fox lately?

Notice that Newt Gingrich was "SHUSHED!!!" when he brought up Soros' financing of Leftist District Attorneys (like Kim Foxx/Chicago and Kim Gardner/St Louis)?

Paul Ryan should get right on this!!

Sudden Near-Halt to Violent "Demonstrations"? Hmmmmm

There's been a near-halt to the BLM/Antifa/RevCom insurrection-arson-looting-vandalism riots in the last 10 days.  Yes, Portland continues, and there are scattered reports of "peaceful" demonstrations here and there.

But the Big One, scheduled for fifty days in D.C. beginning yesterday, didn't happen--at least, not yet.

Why?

Because the people financing all this read polls and understand that the riots only strengthen Trump.  The riots are demolishing support for Biden and other Democrats and as a result, it's possible that Republicans will control Congress AND the White House after 11/3.

There is no such thing as co-incidence, friends.  Jack Ryan never lied to you, did he?

Catholics/Abortion Survey: NO "Good News"

Pew research issued a horrifying study.

...a full 77 percent of “Democratic and Democratic-leaning Catholic adults say they think abortion should be legal in all or most cases,”...

That's the worst of TWO "bad news" findings. 

The other is that only 63% percent of Republican and Republican-leaning Catholics say they think that abortion should be illegal in all or most cases."

So more than one-third of "Republican- and -leaner" Catholics think abortion is OK in all or most cases, as do 77% of "Democrat- and -leaner" Catholics.

We cannot place our finger on the part of this survey which is "good" news.

Only one US Bishop openly supports Fr. Altman.  Surprised?

Do you remember the days when we all knew "10%" were off the reservation?  Good times, good times.

Coming to a TeeVee Near You

 Blaska ran this and it will happen.  They'll even run this play against Amy Barrett.

Kavanaugh

Now for a Moment of Preachiness From Barky

 Barky Hussein Obama asks that you SD and SU for his sermonette.

I'll cut to the chase for you.

...Four and a half years ago, when Republicans refused to hold a hearing or an up-or-down vote on Merrick Garland, they invented the principle that the Senate shouldn’t fill an open seat on the Supreme Court before a new president was sworn in.

A basic principle of the law — and of everyday fairness — is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment. The rule of law, the legitimacy of our courts, the fundamental workings of our democracy all depend on that basic principle. As votes are already being cast in this election, Republican Senators are now called to apply that standard. The questions before the Court now and in the coming years — with decisions that will determine whether or not our economy is fair, our society is just, women are treated equally, our planet survives, and our democracy endures — are too consequential to future generations for courts to be filled through anything less than an unimpeachable process....

Hey, Barky:  FOAD

The Green Effect

 Stolen from PowerLine


The Morality of Kung Flu Restrictions

Bp. Paprocki wrote a paper regarding the morality surrounding Government-imposed restrictions during Kung-Flu--or for another similar event.  Here's the payoff quote:

...the distinction between ordinary and extraordinary means of preserving life is important,” he writes, “for if a means is extraordinary — that is, if the burdens outweigh the benefits — then it is not morally obligatory and should not be coerced by state power.” Bishop Paprocki also makes the point in his essay that although human life is a great gift, it is not a moral absolute...

The Karens of the world have begun pointing the Finger of Shame at various businesses in this area for NOT FORCING CUSTOMERS TO WEAR MASKS!!!!! and other grave crimes against humanity such as 'distancing.'  These crimes are at least as grave as the Holocaust, you know.

None of the Karens give a rip about moral theology, of course.  They're not adults in the ordinary sense of that word; they're narcissist gammas or worse.  They should be ignored or given finger-signals IYKWIMAITYD.

Kroger Goes Anti-Christian, Gets Sued

This should not come as a surprise--other than that Kroger was surprisingly stupid to fire these employees.

Kroger is facing a lawsuit after it fired two employees for refusing to wear a pro-LGBT apron as part of their work uniform because it violated their religious beliefs.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against the grocery store chain after a location in Conway, Arkansas, fired two employees for refusing to follow a new dress code that required them to wear an apron with a rainbow-colored heart emblem.

The two women said that wearing the apron was an endorsement of the LGBT movement, which went against their religious beliefs....

Kroger (Pick-N-Save here in Wisconsin) will lose this suit and pay a lot of money to those ladies.

Deservedly so.

McConnell's Vote and The Battle

Following the death of Ginsburg, McConnell promised a vote on Trump's SCOTUS nominee.  Early money is on Amy Barrett, which will allow Feinstein to display her vicious anti-Catholicism once again.  That won't be a good look for the old hag, since Barrett is the model of the 'girl next door.'  Barrett is on record disagreeing with Roe, so for the Democrats, this is Armageddon.

Of course, McConnell's promise to "vote" means very little when Prissy Willard and Murkowski are inclined to vote against ANY Trump nominee, whether this year or next.  But Prissy-Puss and Murkowski are irrelevant since Pence will break a tie.  That means Collins is The One.

Normally, Collins would vote against someone like Barrett because Collins approves of slaughtering black babies.  But Collins is up for re-election in a swing state and Trump is coming on strong down the stretch.  Further, during the Kavanaugh fight, Feinstein made an enemy of Collins with her threats; it's possible that Collins will throw in with Trump just to stick it in Feinstein's ass.

That would be fun to watch.


DWD's Frostman Fired

Yesterday, Tin-Pot Tony Evers fired the head of Wisconsin's Department of Workforce Development.

...The governor had grown increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress in clearing the claims and getting benefits to those who deserve them despite increased resources and staffing for the agency, a source close to the governor's office told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  ...

Yada yada yada.

The Milwaukee J-S ran an article describing the agony of "hundreds" waiting for unemployment comp (UC) checks on September 9th; another ran on July 29th; another on June 30th.

Took a long, long, time to kick Frostman down the stairs, eh?

How long will it take for DWD to pay HIS unemployment claim?

Democrat "Ethics" in Wisconsin

You all recall that Jennifer Schilling appointed Scot Ross to the Wisconsin Ethics Commission.  Schilling was regarded as a 'moderate' Democrat until this move, which revealed that she is actually a member of the AOC Party of subversion, riot, and anarchy.

So is Scot Ross.  Here's what he had to say about replacing Ginsburg:

Media pundit Scot Ross tweeted to Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), who warned McConnell against filling Ginsburg’s seat: “Fucking A, Ed. If you can’t shut it down, burn it down.”

So there's your Democrat "ethics" in Wisconsin. 

Are you fool enough to think he's the only Democrat in this State who thinks that way?

Jesus Lays the Smackdown on US Bishops

 Caviezel doesn't hold back at all.

His interview begins at 45:30 or so.  You'll have to wait a bit for the good stuff.

Property Rights, Riots, and "Vigilantes"

One local RadioMouth has made it his personal crusade to radio-convict Kyle Rittenhouse of murder or something because Rittenhouse was defending property in Kenosha.  It's also his aim to trash-talk Rittenhouse's actions by referring to him as a "vigilante" and then decrying "vigilante justice" as the Most Horrible Thing since the Holocaust.

In brief, his fanatic-emotionalism on the topic is overcoming any intellectual discussion of "property rights", which Rittenhouse was actually defending.  The concept of citizen-defense of property rights deserves a lot better than unhinged rants, so here we go.

This link was provided by Madison bloggeur (sic) David Blaska, (who is a very proper Moderate Republican, not some white-terrorist-supremacy ideologue.)  The essay was written by Dustin Siebel, a Libertarian, and while his premises are seriously flawed, his conclusions and much of his argumentation happen to line up very well with Natural Law and standard moral-theology principles.  (To clarify the issues, I have deleted some text which is extraneous to the matter at hand.)

Among other things, the RadioMouth claims that Rittenhouse was not protecting HIS OWN property.  To that.......

...An [  ] argument might be that his claim to defending property is illegitimate because it was not his property, or because he crossed state lines. This, in my view, is a ridiculous proposition. ...The claim that people don’t have a right to defend the property of others also undermines the entire premise of protesting on the behalf of another....

Yes, there is a 'reverse the poles' example which RadioMouth didn't think about.

...The argument that Kyle’s claim to property defense ends across state lines also draws arbitrary boundaries on where your rights to aid others begin and end. Would you honestly refuse a request for aid from a friend, or relative, because they live in another state?...

Of course not.  But RadioMouth's tirades begin with the fact that the car-lot owner did NOT call Rittenhouse; they were not acquainted at all.  So we have a total stranger protecting somebody's property rights here, right?

So now we get to the center ring of this exercise.  I will line-out his Libertarian ideology and substitute the Judaeo-Christian text; you will note that it makes no difference to his conclusion.

...To dispute the dismissal of property rights as a whole, let’s first identify where property rights come from. The primary right from which all other rights are derived is the right to ownership of one’s own body. From the right of self-ownership, God created you and gave you certain inalienable rights, among them the right to life and the pursuit of happiness.  ...You have the right to sustain, or destroy, that which you own. In order to sustain the body, a person must be able to make claims to unclaimed resources in which they have invested their labor to transform. If a person cannot make claims to the resources they utilize to sustain themselves, then self-preservation is impossible. If theft, or destruction, of property cannot be a violation of rights, then the use of violence to impede a person’s survival is not a violation of their rights. Therefore, to imply that a person has no right to defend their property is to imply that they have no right to self-preservation.

This is Natural Law reasoning and it happens to be supported by Catholic moral theology.  In fact, the Catholic position allows lethal force to protect property, which is NOT allowed in Wisconsin.  (Yes, there are limits and conditions.  Please apply common sense.)

...Let’s move on to the more common argument, that lethal force is not acceptable in defense of property. This argument is often based on a premise that the force utilized to protect property should be proportional to the threat against the property. However, a requirement of proportional response makes the claim to property rights contingent upon an individual’s ability to use marginally superior force in response to a threat. If you cannot repel a threat without using more force than necessary, then your right to that property is surrendered. Therefore, the claim to property would be relative to one’s own ability to exercise force. This strips property rights from those who cannot exercise force only marginally greater than the aggressor.

Under such conditions, only a person with unlimited access to power, across the spectrum of power, at all levels, has a claim to property. If a person’s right to keep their property is limited by their ability to defend it, then those with limited power must delegate the protection of their property to an outside force. This, in turn, makes the right of property ownership by the powerless subject to the discretion of those with power to enforce it. Because property is derived from self-preservation, this in turn means that self-preservation is limited by one’s ability to enact marginal violence....

"Delegating the power...." is what we do by funding law enforcement.  But in Kenosha, "law enforcement" was not present or was insufficient.  (The reason why is irrelevant.)

...The view that it is okay to destroy property, but not to defend property, that it is okay to batter and kill, but not to defend yourself, is a violation of natural rights....

Let's take the next step.  We established that Natural Law allows defense of one's own property but that we delegate protection to law enforcement.

When law enforcement is not available, do natural rights disappear with them?

Nope.

Are 'strangers' allowed to defend YOUR property?

Yes.  

Property rights do not disappear, and since we are all obligated to some degree to maintain Civil Order which protects ALL rights (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness), all of us are called by virtue of citizenship to assist in case of need.  Can RadioMouth argue that nobody should assist in this task?  If so, we'd be very interested in his thoughts.

It is impossible for one to maintain--as does RadioMouth--that only "authorities" or "owners" can protect property the possession of which is an inalienable right.  It is also impossible to maintain that only specifically-called or -delegated friends are allowed to protect Civil Order, unless that Order exists only at your home/business, or your city block.  Positing that the limits of Civil Order are congruent to your property-line (or that of the friend who engaged your help) is obviously silly.

In other words, if Civil Order should be maintained, all citizens are naturally responsible to assist in that maintenance, and that MAY include lethal force as a LAST RESORT.

Our RadioMouth seems to believe that Civil Order is either not a necessity OR that no citizen is allowed to maintain such Order.  I wonder what his wife and children think about that.

Write your Legislature and change Wisconsin law to comport with moral and natural law--allow lethal force for protection of property.

Current FEEB Liar-in-Chief: 'Terrorists Are the Whites!'

Wray, the current Liar-in-Chief at the FBI, has information on domestic terrorism.

...“Within the domestic terrorism bucket, category as a whole, racially motivated violent extremism is I think the biggest bucket within that large group. And within the racially motivated extremism bucket people prescribing to some kind of white supremacist ideology is certainly the biggest chunk of that,” Wray told radical Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI)....

Someone asked for statistics on that.  You know--measures, numbers, "fact" stuff.

“I don’t have the numbers for you,” Wray said admitting he has no evidence whatsoever...

But he's the Big FEEB, just as dedicated to "fidelity, integrity, and bravery" as were his predecessors, like Comey.  And some subordinates, like McCabe and Strzok.

Completely trustworthy.  Top.  Men.
