    MILWAUKEE - Democrats will “descend” on Milwaukee for the national convention in August despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said Wednesday. But Perez stopped short of predicting how many Democrats would be allowed, or willing, to attend. “We don’t know the answer today because we don’t know what the public health situation on the ground will be,” Perez said on a conference call with reporters. Perez promised to stage a “safe and effective convention where we will highlight Joe Biden and his running mate.” **SNIP** Biden and Democrats are in touch with public health experts...

    A Milwaukee resident found a way into Miller Park, home of the Brewers, last week and attempted to write his name in cursive on the field with a stolen tractor, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The team released a statement saying an individual caused "minor damage" to the playing surface. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the damages caused by Keyon A. Lambert were valued at $40,000. According to the criminal complaint, he told the police he attempted this stunt and took the tractor because he had never driven one. Grounds crew members were present when he got into the...

    In wake of the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded for air as a white Minneapolis officer held a knee on his neck, a viral video from 2014 of Milwaukee’s former police chief Ed Flynn began to spread again around the web. The video, filmed by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Ashley Luthern, got thousands of likes and retweets including from Donald Trump Jr., son of President Trump, who retweeted it while stating "This is a must watch and RT. This is the difference between the truth and the narrative the media runs with. Why won’t the media...

    The Tennessee Star ^ | 10 Mar, 2020 | Bradley Betters
    Antifa violence will feature prominently in the lead-up to this year’s election. The left-wing movement’s numbers skyrocketed following President Trump’s 2016 victory and campaign staffers for Bernie Sanders have already predicted serious street violence should Trump win again. Same goes for a Sanders primary loss. As another staffer recently predicted, this year’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee will be rife with attacks on police; enough, apparently, to make the infamous 1968 convention in Chicago “look like a f—ing Girl Scout f—ing cookout.” With the weight of the Democrat machine now transparently behind former Vice President Joe Biden (who was the...

    MILWAUKEE - State Rep. LaKeshia Myers says she received death threats after releasing a statement denouncing the lack of enforcement at a protest against Gov. Tony Evers' safer at home order extension. The protest at the State Capitol in Madison about 1,500 of opponents of the order extension. "The rally held at the Wisconsin State Capitol (Friday) by individuals protesting the governor’s ‘Safer at Home’ order was clearly an exercise in white privilege," Myers' statement said. "Even though a permit was denied and the capitol building was closed to the public, protesters openly defied the governor’s directive by gathering en...

  • Democratic National Convention postponed until August due to coronavirus pandemic

The convention was originally scheduled for July 13-17. It will now be held the week of August 17. “In our current climate of uncertainty, we believe the smartest approach is to take additional time to monitor how this situation unfolds so we can best position our party for a safe and successful convention," said Joe Solmonese, CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee.

    Old and busted: It’ll be 1968 all over again! New hotness: It’ll be 1368 all over again! DNC officials began to raise questions about the wisdom of holding a political convention in July, the Washington Post reports, as Wisconsin’s governor declared a health emergency two days ago. Instead of putting thousands of people into a crowded public venue in Milwaukee, some party officials want “contingencies” explored for a virtual convention, perhaps even a mail-in system: Some Democratic Party officials this week began to express concern about plans to bring tens of thousands of people to Milwaukee for the July...

    The gunman who killed five co-workers at the Molson Coors Brewery in Milwaukee last week came to work one day in 2015 to find out that a noose had been placed on his locker, the company disclosed Tuesday. Police have not said what might have sparked the rampage by 51-year-old electrician Anthony Ferrill on Feb. 26, who died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
  • Coors Mass Shooter Doesn't Fit the Media Narrative - Is That Why You've Heard Nothing About Him?

    So angry? Yes, of course. Conservative? Probably not, given that most individuals don’t marry spouses with differing political opinions. Male? Yes. White? No. There are other uncomfortable facts. Ferrill built his own guns, according to neighbors, using parts ordered out of catalogs. There’s no evidence those guns were used in the shootings, mind you — but the idea of someone being able to make their own guns undercuts, in a very small way, the gun control argument. The point is, this just didn’t tick enough boxes for the left, so it’s been quickly falling off the radar. This is how...

    The Milwaukee man who killed five co-workers at a beer company’s corporate office is a black Elizabeth Warren supporter, providing a clue as to why the mass shooting disappeared from the discussion so quickly. 51-year-old Anthony Ferrill showed up at the MillerCoors facility from where he had been fired earlier in the day wearing his uniform and carrying a silenced gun. He proceeded to gun down five colleagues before turning the weapon on himself. It subsequently emerged that Ferrill was an African-American Elizabeth Warren supporter (presuming that Ferrill shared the same political beliefs as his wife, who took a selfie...

He had worked there for 20 years at the time, according to the post. The union has not commented on the shooting.

    The drumbeat for Democratic National Committee boss Tom Perez to be “held accountable” for recent party failures appears to be getting louder. The latest Democrats to criticize Perez include U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; and Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., all backers of 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. Recent party setbacks have included the vote-count fiasco at Monday’s Iowa caucuses and Tuesday night’s disclosure that two officials on the host committee of the party’s upcoming national convention in Milwaukee had been fired over non-specified allegations that they oversaw a work environment where staff members were not being...

    Late Tuesday, the board for the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee terminated President Liz Gilbert and her chief of staff, Adam Alonso. The move comes just one day after the board suspended the pair and launched an investigation into “toxic workplace” allegations. Alonso and Gilbert had previously come under criticism for continuing to do work for New Jersey Democrats while leading the host committee full time. The New Jersey Democratic Party connection does not inspire a lot of confidence. In interviews, the two experienced political hands described the host committee as having a toxic culture rife with power struggles, backbiting and...

Travis Sarandos, who teaches English at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, has since deleted his Twitter account, @travis_MKE. Replying to a different tweet expressing hope that Limbaugh would recover and begin advocating for affordable health care, Sarandos wrote: "limbaugh absolutely should have to suffer from cancer. it's awesome that he's dying, and hopefully it is as quick as it is painful." It drew a small firestorm after conservative radio host Mark Belling...
