    Former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed Tuesday that the Russians are propping up U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii for a third-party presidential run in 2020. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said of Russia’s involvement in the next presidential election on former Obama White House advisor David Plouffe’s podcast. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.” During the interview, Clinton also branded former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein...

    Say, that’s a real nice police department you got there. Real nice. You know, it’d be a real shame if something happened to it. Like what? Oh, I don’t know. You just never know when positions might be eliminated or things like that. But that doesn’t have to happen. Just give us more money by letting us raise your taxes and that nice police department you got will be just fine. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is sounding an awful lot like The Godfather’s Tom Hagen these days as he tries to pressure both the State Legislature and Milwaukee County voters...

    A Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) driver was hailed a hero for helping save people from a burning building. MCTS driver Chanaye Brown was honored on Thursday, Oct. 10 for stepping in when help was needed. Brown was driving her route on Jan. 5, when she saw flames coming from the window of a home near 79th and Hampton. Video from inside the bus shows Brown leap into action after spotting the fire. "I'm going to see if I can get somebody's attention," Brown can be heard saying on video. In the video, you can see Brown run toward the...

    RINO Paul Ryan was a disgrace as a “Republican” House Speaker, and one of his biggest failings was taking advantage of complete GOP control of Congress and the White House during President Trump’s first two years in office. Some conservatives (us included) have blamed him for losing the House, as he and more than 50 other establishment Republicans bailed on their constituents, on Trump, and on our republic ahead of the 2018 elections. None of Ryan’s anti-Trump treachery has been lost on the president.

    A man walked 351 miles from an Indianapolis suburb to Wisconsin to have sex with a 14-year-old girl, the U.S. Attorney's office said. [snip] Unbeknownst to Jenkins, 'Kylee' was actually a Winnebago County Sheriff's Deputy assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. When he arrived in Winnebago County, Jenkins was arrested by local deputies and a special agent from the FBI. For his crime, Jenkins faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum life sentence if convicted.

    A Wisconsin-based spice company has been the second-largest buyer of impeachment ads on Facebook in recent days, second only to President Trump himself, according to a new analysis released Tuesday. Penzeys Spices in Wauwatosa, Wis., has spent $92,000 on pro-impeachment ads between Sept. 29 and Oct. 5, according to data compiled by Bully Pulpit Interactive, a Democratic communications agency, and published by Axios. By comparison, the Trump campaign shelled out $718,000 to defend the president after House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry last month over his dealings with Ukraine, while billionaire philanthropist and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer was the...

    The questionable actions of former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former CIA director John Brennan have made it impossible for Americans to trust the country’s intelligence apparatuses and created a sense of extreme skepticism, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said during an interview that aired Sunday. Johnson appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” and got into a heated debate with host Chuck Todd over House Democrats’ impeachment efforts and various intelligence community abuses. The GOP senator said there still were unanswered questions when asked if he thought Russia interfered in the 2016 election. “They absolutely...

    Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press," called out Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) for responding to a question with a "Fox News conspiracy" during a heated interview on Sunday. "I have no idea why a Fox News conspiracy propaganda stuff is popping up on here. I have no idea. I have no idea why we're going here," Todd said. He then pushed the senator to "answer the question that I asked you instead of trying to make Donald Trump feel better here that you're not criticizing him." "What made you wince? I’m asking a simple question about you clearly...

    A correspondent I have known since his childhood spends a large part of his time overseas as a missionary. Coming back to Wisconsin, he was surprised to find a “No Firearms Allowed” sign at a Denny's. I believe this is a local policy, decided by each local manager of the franchise. My correspondent gave me permission to edit the account of his reaction. His overseas experience has made him appreciate the freedoms Americans take for granted. His account: Returning to America after having been gone half a year, lends itself to re-entry culture shock. I recently returned to the...

    Reedsburg, Wis. -- It’s not the worst of times in Sauk County, Wisconsin. It may even be the best of times in this bucolic mix of dairy farms and vacation homes, factory workers and professionals. But after two years of strong economic growth, the outlook here in this battleground county in a battleground state is softening. “Plateauing,” says Kurt Muchow, a community development consultant for Wisconsin municipalities. “A little bit of angst,” says Ed White, executive director of the Sauk County Development Corp. in Baraboo. And a little bit of mystery, too. After strong job growth in President Donald Trump’s...

    The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office is trying to figure out how one its vehicles ended up empty in a ditch nearly 2 hours away. A Burnett County deputy found it outside of Spooner over the weekend. The SUV was discovered off to the side of County Road G in Rusk Township. On Saturday night, a deputy from Burnett County, Wisconsin happened upon the abandoned vehicle. After checking the plates, the deputy realized it wasn't just any vehicle, it was registered to Hennepin County and assigned to a law enforcement officer. Sources confirmed it's Major Bob Staupe, a member of the...

    On Sept. 25, the Democrat-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a 3 ½ hour “hearing” entitled “Protecting America From Assault Weapons.” That framing of the issue underscored the erroneous notion that Americans need protection from inanimate objects, rather than from violent criminals who have and always will use any means at their disposal to harm innocent, defenseless people. It also revealed the unfortunate agenda of the proceedings, which was to emphasize politics and finger-pointing over any useful exploration of how Congress might take meaningful steps to improve public safety, The NRA-ILA reports. The most startling claim of the proceedings came...

    If you've been sweating your way through the past few muggy weeks, it may seem impossible for you to remember a time when it was actually cold enough outside to warrant hats and scarves. But on June 24, a dairy farmer in Ireland tweeted out a pic of one of his calves sporting baby pink earmuffs, and the internet went wild. "So it turns out ear muffs for calves to stop them getting frostbite are a real thing," wrote Twitter user @ThisFarmingMan_. The post has since been liked 171,000 times and garnered more than 30,000 responses. But this isn't the...

GOP lawmakers are asserting the whistleblower did not have firsthand knowledge of the actions detailed in the complaint and question whether the person had a political agenda. “It doesn’t come from a person with personal knowledge. It’s like I heard these people say this, and now I’m reporting it. I think that is pretty bizarre,” said Sen. John...
  • Two Falsely Accused Priests Fight Back and Win!

    We are happy to report two new developments in cases of falsely accused priests: 1. A jury in Wisconsin swiftly acquitted Rev. William Nolan after a 26-year-old accuser made the astonishing claim that Nolan had abused him well over a 100 times as recently as a decade ago. "I'm a Catholic priest. I'm supposed to forgive. I think I can do that, but I will never forget the way [the accuser] has ruined my life," Nolan told local news media. To say the least, there was a multitude of glaring inconsistencies in the accuser's crazy story, including that the accuser...

    During Friday’s Yellowhammer Radio with Cliff Sims, Rep. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) discussed the resignation of House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH). While Boehner’s resignation is not effective until October 30, Brooks speculated on who the replacement would be, saying there is a “smorgasbord” of potential replacements “from the more liberal-wing of the Republican Party.”

    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan, who currently sits on the board of Fox Corp., is reportedly urging Fox News to “decisively break” with President Donald Trump, according to a Thursday Vanity Fair report documenting the network’s “management bedlam.” Vanity Fair’s Gabe Sherman, citing four sources, reported that Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, who has long tried to move Fox News to the center, “is already thinking about how to position the network for a post-Trump future.” Ryan, the longtime Trump antagonist, has reportedly been suggesting to Murdoch that “Fox should decisively break with the president” as Murdoch holds “strategy conversations...

    Well, the days of Scott Walker running the state are long gone. That’s regrettable. Former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, his real name is Robert Francis, went nuclear on the gun control issue. He wants to outright confiscate firearms, specifically so-called assault weapons. Why? Well, to liberals, they’re scary looking. That’s about it. He wants to confiscate the private property of law-abiding Americans. It’s illegal. It’s not going to happen at the federal level anytime soon because a) Bob isn’t going to be president let alone the 2020 Democratic nominee, and b) it’s a losing issue. What can happen though are...
