    Despite the spate of recent polls showing former Vice President Joe Biden with a commanding lead over President Donald Trump, a new shock poll reveals Americans aren’t quite as eager to hand over their freedom as some have said.According to RealClearPolitics’ latest aggregate of polls, Biden leads Trump by 8 points, 49.6 percent to 40.8. But a poll conducted for the Sunday Express by the Democracy Institute, a Washington-based think tank, reveals Americans aren’t buying the narrative the U.S. media are trying to advance.Contrary to what the media would have us believe, 77 percent of the 1,500 likely voters surveyed...

    Police in Fond du Lac, Wis., say a 27-year-old man intentionally slammed his pickup head-on into a motorcyclist because he was “targeting a White person,” leaving the rider dead last week, investigators said Thursday. Daniel Navarro allegedly swerved his father’s 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup into the victim’s path without braking on July 3, Fond du Lac Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt said at a news conference Thursday. Authorities identified the deceased as 55-year-old Phillip Thiessen, a Marine veteran and former Virginia police officer who had retired from a career with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, where he’d investigated crimes against children.

    Skip the first 2 minutes to avoid his commercials. Nice piece from Dr Steve Hurley. Highlights. 1. New Express poll has Trump tied with Biden at 47% each. 2. In case you think it's an outlier, Zogby also had a poll June 30th with Trump and Biden tied at 46% each. (Not to mention the Harris poll which had the gap between Biden and Trump down to just 4%). 3. The Express poll had Trump on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where Trump outpolls Biden by 48 percent to 44...

    -- A Fond du Lac man intentionally crashed into and killed a motorcyclist last week because he believed the motorcyclist was white, Fond du Lac County Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt said. Daniel Navarro, 27, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide, hate crime and use of a dangerous weapon in the crash last week that killed 55-year-old Phillip Thiessen. “Given the current social climate, the information shared today will undoubtedly lead to future conversation and discussion within our community,” said Waldschmidt. Thiessen was found dead in the road on July 3. Officers were called to the area of Winnebago Drive and Taycheedah...

    Fox ^ | December 23, 2016
    A "shameful" abstention by the U.S. in a United Nations Security Council vote Friday allowed passage of a resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank. The resolution was put forward by New Zealand, Malaysia, Venezuela and Senegal after Egypt withdrew it Thursday under pressure from Israel and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump. It was adopted with 14 votes in favor, to a round of applause, after U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power abstained. It is the first resolution the Security Council has adopted on Israel and the Palestinians in nearly eight years. Reaction from U.S. Republicans and Jewish leaders around...

    Now can demand 'records and testimony' of many Obama administration officials Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., on Thursday was given the authority to subpoena dozens of former members of the Obama administration who were involved in the Russia collusion investigation. The Obama Justice Department's probe of the now-debunked collusion claim, which included illegitimate spying on the Trump campaign, led to the special counsel probe of Robert Mueller, which couldn't find sufficient evidence of collusion. Johnson has explained that dozens of leaks of national security information fueled the "Russia narrative, first of Russia helping Trump and then, all of a sudden, the...

    MADISON, WI — At the risk of roasting in hell or having demons consume my entrails, I must report some important facts: People accused of gun violence in Dane County are now free on bail and walking the streets thanks to a well-funded radical leftist group. The Dane County Sheriff’s Department on Monday issued a press release noting that “Free the 350,” an activist group dedicated to freeing black inmates from the Dane County Jail, recently bailed out: Kenyairra Gadson, 23, of Madison.

    The manufacturer of the popular American Girl dolls says it is “disgusted” by an online parody that depicted one of its toys as a gun-toting white doll named Karen who refuses to wear a face mask while shopping during the coronavirus pandemic. American Girl, which makes 18-inch dolls portraying female youngsters, responded to the fake image last week after it was posted to Facebook and went viral on other platforms. “I saw a post of an American Girl doll, Karen, who refuses to wear a mask and carried a gun as disgusting,” a Twitter user wrote the Wisconsin-based company....

    Boo-freaking-hoo Hillary voters had weeks to resign themselves to their post-election reality. They didn’t do that. Instead of facing up to their loss, they played the blame game. Instead of graciously accepting the results of the election, they clung desperately to fever-dreams of an electoral upset. Their moment never came. The electoral college worked precisely as it was designed to, and the country was not held hostage by the voters of New York and California. Still, some Clinton supporters are having - shall we say - a “hard time” dealing with defeat.

    A Wisconsin Walmart manager recently followed store policy in Northern Wisconsin. They interacted with a long term friend of mine. He is an accomplished world traveler, due to his vocation as a missionary. He has traveled extensively in Europe, Asia, and Australia. He has often remarked about how little freedom most of the world has, compared to the United States.He is a brave man. I marvel at the dangers he considers routine.  When in the United States, he openly carries a sidearm, most commonly a Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic pistol.  He says liberty, unclaimed and unused, is easier to lose....

    Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) is attributing GOP rival Donald Trump's rise in the polls to a momentary "loss of sanity." "I think this is a temporary sort of loss of sanity, but we're going to come back to our senses and look for someone serious to lead the country at some point," Paul said told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer on his show, when asked about a new national poll showing Trump still atop the crowded GOP field. Paul pointed to the extensive media coverage of the controversial candidate. "Television works, Wolf," said Paul. "If you would give some other candidates...

    MADISON, WI — Empower Wisconsin has learned that Gov. Tony Evers’ power-grabbing Department of Health Services is set to soon post the names of all Wisconsin businesses that have recorded at least two COVID-19 cases. This government-sanctioned disclosure will slam a Scarlet Letter on Badger State businesses already reeling from the pandemic and state and local lockdowns, business advocates say. “Any business that is confronted with this report and suffers the unintended consequences, that’s equivalent to the old saying, Where do you go to get your good name back,” said Brandon Scholz, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Grocers Association....

    A Racine, Wisc., judge ruled Wednesday that the city’s coronavirus safety ordinance was too broad for citizens to understand and violated the state’s constitution, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported. Racine County Circuit Judge Jon Fredrickson wrote that the order was “likely the strictest, and most over-arching COVID-19 order or ordinance in the country," adding "This court finds that no average person of ordinary intelligence can make sense of its sprawling breadth." The city has appealed the decision, the latest of several against the city by Frederickson, who then-Gov. Scott Walker (R) appointed in 2018. Frederickson said the city’s limitation on mass...

    (CNN)A half dozen new swing-state polls released Thursday morning suggest that not only would President Donald Trump lose if the election were held today, he would lose in a landslide.

Trump won every one of those states in the 2016 election. Switch them from red to blue and you can quickly...

    Some University of Wisconsin-Madison students of color want the university to remove one of its most iconic landmarks, a statue of Abraham Lincoln, because of what they see as the former president’s anti-indigenous and anti-Black history despite Lincoln’s legacy of ending slavery in the U.S. Two student organizations, the Black Student Union and the Student Inclusion Coalition, pushed for the statue’s removal in early June, days after George Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody and protests erupted nationally over racial injustice.

    The Biden campaign is in major trouble. The Democrat front runner can barely win a primary yet he is the only remaining candidate in the race. Also, a key state, Wisconsin, has President Trump in the lead by a reputable pollster. It’s inevitable. The Biden campaign is in a horrible spot. Their candidate couldn’t hold a job in the US doing anything due to his horrible decline in health and increasing dementia. He can’t afford to hold a rally because he’ll mess up and say something crazy. He looks weak and feeble and so he stays in his basement where...

Trump beat Clinton, 47.2 percent to 46.5 percent in 2016.

    MADISON, Wis. — Federal prosecutors on Friday charged a Black man whose arrest triggered a violent protest in Wisconsin's capital city with extorting local businesses. Police arrested 28-year-old Devonere Johnson in Madison on Tuesday after he walked into Cooper's Tavern near the state Capitol building with a megaphone and a bat. The arrest sparked a protest later that night that saw demonstrators tear down two statues outside the Capitol building and assault state Sen. Tim Carpenter on the Capitol lawn.
