Open email to Speaker Robin Vos in the Wisconsin Assembly
OK. The Supreme Court refused to hear Texas' case against the blatant election irregularities in Wisconsin's Presidential election - now it is the GOP's job to refuse to certify the election - and if it is already too late to do that - to bring suit in federal court to reverse any such certification.
The election was definitely rigged and mishandled by several states. Were the collection boxes in Madison and Dane County legal under Wisconsin election law? How did several wards in Milwaukee manage over 100% voter turnout? How did a huge dump of predominately Biden votes occur in the dead of night?
If Biden won fair and square, so be it - but to ignore these questions is to tell Wisconsin that their votes and laws mean nothing.

Message to our governor Tony Evers - for what it's worth.
OK. It's the FLU. It's going to be with us forever. Get over it, end the political theater. Open the state.
In Japan, the government was prohibited from shutting the economy down. Common sense ruled - sick people stayed home, the vulnerable were protected. Very low deaths, and huge numbers of positive tests.
If we tested for the regular flu the way we are testing for Covid 19, we would see astronomical numbers of "cases", because that's how these diseases work. Almost everyone gets infected, some get sick, a small number of those die. It's the way the world works and there's nothing government can do to change it.
All the mask orders, social distancing, and shutdowns do is prolong the agony. End them NOW.
The people of Wisconsin deserve to be able to live their lives free of artificial terror ginned up by the media and those who wish to fundamentally change America into a socialist paradise like Venezuela.
Not holding my breath waiting for a reasonable response...

Woman helps cop, kills bad guy - then gets sued
Last year a woman in Indiana courageously assisted a police officer who was being beaten down by a criminal, who was trying to grab his gun. She shot the perpetrator, who subsequently died of his injuries. She was cleared of any wrongdoing by the authorities - but now she's being sued by the family of the deceased criminal. An original news report about the incident may be found here. A PoliceOne report about the impending lawsuit may be found here.
A fundraiser has been started to help this courageous woman pay the legal expenses incurred in defending herself. From its description:
On February 20, 2017 a suspicious person prompted a call to 911 in Ohio County, Indiana. The suspicious person was parked in a elderly persons yard for an extended period of time, blocking her driveway, and creating a road hazard. Shortly after a Police Officer arrived in response to the call. The man began resisting and both the Officer and man went to the ground. A young woman (Kystie) standing nearby on her property ran to help the Officer. Kystie could see the Officer was loosing the fight as this man reached for the Officers gun. Fortunately for the Officer, Kystie was armed and shot the man one time which ended the fight.
Indiana State Police conducted the investigation, which was reviewed by the Dearborn County, Indiana Prosecutors Office, and the findings were that Kystie’s actions were deemed justified and no criminal charges were filed.
However, On April 6, 2018, Kystie received a summons ... regarding a wrongful death lawsuit for the assailant, J. Holland. Ohio County Superior Court Case No.:58C01-1802-CT-00001. The Officer involved was also named in the suit.
I am asking our community of citizens and law enforcement Officers to help in this legal battle. Attorney fees are an expense well beyond Kystie’s income and this will not be a quick process. The legal fees and emotional stress may drain every resource she has.
. . .
This case is about more than the right or wrong of one party suing another. Imagine not being able to come to the aid of another person for fear of being sued, possibly to the point of bankruptcy. The case is about a person having the basic God-given right and the 2nd Amendment right to defend both yourself and others and without the fear of civil retribution.
There's more at the link, including the names of the lawyers involved and links to several more news articles about the incident. Please click over there and follow them for yourself.
Folks, this is a very worthy cause. Miss D. and I will be contributing, and I'd like to ask all my readers to please give what you can afford. If private citizens mus be afraid to help those who defend their safety and security against criminals, due to the risk of lawsuits, then soon we won't have public protectors at all - because they won't defend those who won't support them. Want proof of that? Just look at the impact the 'Ferguson Effect' is having on law enforcement all over the country.
Please circulate the news of this fund-raiser to your friends, and via your blogs or social media accounts if you have them.

Dear President Trump,
Now is not the time to cave in to the people who would use the events in Las Vegas to promote their anti-freedom schemes.
America has suffered under illegal and anti-Constitutional "gun control" since the 1934 NFA was enacted in response to the gang violence created in part by federal legislation (and a Constitutional amendment!) banning the sale of alcoholic beverages. The Treasury needed to keep in place all those "revenooers" who were hunting stills in the backwoods, and the "Valentine's Day Massacre" in Chicago gave them the excuse they needed to force the National Firearms Act through Congress.
The NFA, required a $200 tax on certain firearms clearly protected by the Second Amendment, and on devices known as "silencers". It also drove the creation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, which has grown out of control over the decades into a bureau that oversaw such disasters as Obama's "Fast and Furious" operation.
The assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King, Jr., and RFK were used to force through Congress almost a word-for-word copy of pre-WWII German law as the 1968 Gun Control Act, which for the first time forced firearms dealers to obtain federal licenses, and expanded the powers of the BATF.
In 1986, legislation was enacted to ease some of the 1968 GCA regulations, but at the last minute and amendment was added that forever banned Americans from registering new NFA weapons, or making their own devices. President Reagan was supposedly unaware of this amendment when he signed the bill into law.
There are several bills in Congress at present that would at least partially remove some of these infringements. The GOP leaders have withdrawn these bills in view of the Las Vegas events, which is exactly what the anti-freedom crowd wants.
Stand firm for American freedom. Demand the GOP stand behind you and fight for true freedom, dangerous and messy it may be, over yet more regulations and so-called "safety".
After some searching on the NRA website, finally found a place to register a "comment":
Life member. Fairly disgusted that you would in any way violate the Second Amendment - which clearly says "shall not be infringed" in relation to weapons of war being available to the people - by suggesting that "bump stocks" should be examined as to their legality.
Gun control in any form is anathema. I demand you retract the joint statement and declare war on Bloomberg, Pelosi, and all the anti-gun creatures.
We must repeal the 1934 NFA, the 1968 GCA, the 1986 ban on new automatic weapons, and all the other illegal and un-Constitutional infringements on American freedom.
Freedom isn't free - and nothing can ever be made perfectly safe - especially by limiting freedom in the name of safety.
If you do not take action on this immediately, I may be forced to resign my membership.

Hang up, wait a few seconds - the phone is still connected. There's no easy way to tell the computer to release the line.
Sent the Senator an email suggesting stiff penalties for anyone making a robocall without it instantly releasing the line when hung up on, and giving an opt-out feature in the first seconds of the call - that would have the same effect as the federal no-call list is SUPPOSED to have. Also, stiff penalties for credit card scams and such that spoof Caller ID.
Just got a reply:

"Unlike our opponents and the GOP establishment, we don’t have a bunch of conservative mega-millionaires lining up to write us checks. We depend on grassroots donations from people like you. Yes, all of, you."
So, George Soros and friends do not qualify as mega-millionaires?

If you grew up in Chicago before political correctness took over, you remember the annual Chicago Tribune printing of John T. McCutcheon's Injun Summer, originally published in 1907.

September Priorities Survey
I need a federal government that follows the Constitution, is limited by law, and truly supports American values.
I need immigrants to do as my grandparents did - apply to come here legally and then integrate into American society.
A strong economy will follow a debt-free federal government with minimal taxes and regulations, and vigorous prosecution of those who flaunt federal anti-trust, price-fixing, and conspiracy laws - like health care organizations, doctors, hospitals, insurance and drug companies.
We have a representative republic, not a democracy. Stop saying that.
For what it's worth...

One that values individual freedom above all other things. One that has a minimal government, firmly under control of a strong, well written Constitution. One where corrupt politicians spend long terms in prison rather than being re-elected.
One where a photo ID is required to vote, and immigrants apply to be admitted to the country rather than sneaking in.
One where everyone is treated equally, and expected to carry their own weight. One where no one can expect to live off the labors of another.
One where they are free to learn the true history of our country, without the teacher's personal opinions treated as fact.
One where people are born with a gender, and either live with that, or pay for any changes they desire out of their own pocket.
One where the government is forbidden from raising taxes without a majority of Americans agreeing to the change.
One where elected officials do not have the power to raise their own salaries.
Do any particular issues before Congress or the Supreme Court concern you or make you hopeful when you think about your children's futures?
The fact that Jugearscare has not been repealed, the Mexican border wall is not under construction, the health care crisis has not been addressed by vigorous prosecution of officials in drug, hospital, and insurance companies for racketeering, and that our state public schools have any kind of federal oversight.
What do you think leaders in Washington and in your local government can do to help build a brighter future for every child?
Repeal Jugearscare, repeal the income tax, end DACA, enforce the law as written, and the Constitution as written.
It feels good to unload...
Monday, September 4, 2017
Here's an example:
Immigration - do it legally or stay home. Build the wall to help keep out the criminals.
Health care - repeal Jugearscare root and branch, prosecute hospitals, doctors, drug companies and insurers who collude to fix prices. 100 year old laws need enforcing here.
Abortion rights - there are none. Get a Constitutional amendment passed if you want the federal government involved here, otherwise, it's state's rights.
LB*** rights - see last comment.
Medicare and Social Security. I get both - and would love to see both programs abolished. Fix health care and get rid of the IRS - let people take care of the rest themselves.
Sexual assault - there are laws already. Enforce them fairly and equally at the state and local level. What happens on base is a matter for a court-martial.
Climate change - it's real, we didn't start it, we can't stop it. Look up - see that bright thing in the sky? It's the sun, and IT is the cause. Man is too puny to change the Earth's climate.
Foreign influence - treat it like espionage. That's what the CIA is for, right?
You really want to help America? How about a federal law to stop email spam and robocalls, as well as Caller ID abuse? We have an FCC that has authority in these areas - use it!
Waste of my time? Probably, but who knows?

Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group, one of many single-issue offshoots (contrary to general belief, the left carries out most of its activities through these small, mostly under-the-radar outfits. The mechanism for this was outlined in Scott Powell’s classic study, Covert Cadre).
Following a number of paragraphs of chest-beating concerning the Charlottesville confrontation, the message, which was sent out over the name of an activist claiming to be named Carl Dix, goes on to declare this:
…we must build off of this resistance to act to end the nightmare of this fascist regime by taking to the streets on November 4th and staying in the streets to drive this regime from power. RefuseFascism.org is holding regional conferences to organize for doing this. Get connected to these regional conferences and get organized for November 4th…
…And we need to go from resistance to mobilizing to end the nightmare of the Trump/Pence regime. Right now these fascists, from Trump on down, are moving very quickly to hammer into place their fascist regime and this must be STOPPED. The organization Refuse Fascism has called for people to come into the streets and public squares and cities and towns across the country beginning on November 4 and stay in the streets day after day and night after night until the DEMAND is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO! For this to happen, everybody needs to be at August 19 regional conferences to organize and mobilize for this.
Looks like the gloves are off. Keep your ammo dry....

Protest the NRA's Carry Guard ExpoJoin us in a peaceful protest of the NRA's violent and hateful vision for America. We will gather on the first night of the NRA Carry Guard Expo to remember the lives lost to gun violence and to demonstrate our resolve to live in peace.
Date: Friday, August 25th
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Location: Zeidler Union Square Park, 301 W. Michigan St., Milwaukee
NRA's Carry Guard is insurance for you if you carry, in case you have to use your weapon and the person you were defending against - or his/her relatives sue, or the local PD wants to charge you.
Can't hardly see how this is something any sane person would consider needing a protest. But then again, WAVE had kittens because the Wisconsin Center will allow guns.
From the NRA Carry Guard Expo web page:
NRA Carry Guard Expo Conceal Carry PolicyDuring the NRA Carry Guard Expo, lawfully carried firearms will be permitted in the Wisconsin Center in accordance with Wisconsin law. When carrying your firearm, remember to follow all federal, state and local laws.
Think of the CHILDREN! :)
NRA Carry Guard Expo
August 25 - 27 2017
400 W Wisconsin Ave
Milwaukee, WI 53203
Tickets available at the link above.
Might be fun to smile at the protesters while open carrying across the street on your way to the Expo...
