    The presidential campaign of former Vice President Mike Pence is in financial trouble. And has learned even Pence is acknowledging it. “Other campaigns have a little more money than us,” Pence admitted in a satellite radio interview Friday, October 20. [cut] Pence recently transferred $150,000 of his own money to the campaign, which currently has $620,000 in debts and $1.2 million in cash on hand. [cut] Yet despite recent reports by the Washington Post of campaign staff cuts, Pence sounds ready to press on. “The truth, for me, it’s always been an uphill climb,” Pence told a Sirius/XM interview...

    These are the California teachers who failed to suspend the teen bullies who killed Diego Stolz, 13, a week after he begged them for help. Stolz, 13, died in September 2019 days after being punched in the head from behind by a 14-year-old boy and subsequently hitting his head against a pillar at Landmark Middle School in Moreno Valley, California. Diego had been picked-on by his bullies the week before his death but the school's assistant principal Kamilah O'Connor is alleged to have failed to suspend them as promised, leaving them free to kill days later. The Stolz family claim...

    THE LAST DAY OF THE OLD GOP ORDER. This day eight years ago, July 13, 2015, marked the last day that old-style Republican politics dominated the GOP presidential race. The day saw Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and third Bush to run for the Republican nomination, firmly in the lead in a highly fractured GOP field, with 17.8% of the national vote in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. That was 8 points ahead of Wisconsin's then-Gov. Scott Walker and 8.5 points ahead of a candidate who had never run for office before, Donald Trump. A week later, on July...

    Rumble - VivaFrei ^ | 03/21/23 | Robert Barnes
    14 min clip from Viva/Robert Barnes podcast. Barnes explains why DeSantis is running for president, donors convinced him Trump would be kneecapped by numerous indictments (most have failed) and thus DeSantis would win the primary. Secondly, DeSantis will not win the general because Trumpers will not vote. Outcome - destroy Trump, DeSantis and MAGA in one swoop. Barnes also explains the case against Trump and other insights. Worth the time.

    America is beginning to take the next election cycle a bit more seriously these days, as the Republican field begins to see its first competitors step up.President Trump was the first candidate to officially throw his hat in the ring way back in November 2022. Nikki Haley has begun her bid for the White House, and investment firm manager Vivek Ramaswamy has also recently jumped in the race.Republican voter enthusiasm at the moment seems to be pointing to a match-up that isn’t even a sure thing at this point – Donald Trump vs. Rick DeSantis. Even the left wing media...

    His support among Republicans at this early stage of the primary cycle puts him in rare company.Is Ron DeSantis the next Scott Walker? It’s a question I’ve been hearing a lot lately.The premise is that there’s an important similarity between the two: They both earned the affection of conservatives by “owning the libs” as governors, rather than by giving soaring speeches or otherwise demonstrating the skills to win a presidential nomination.In the end, Mr. Walker’s success in Wisconsin did not translate to the national stage; the implication is that Mr. DeSantis’s success in Florida might not translate either.

    MADISON, Wis. — Former Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch conceded to Tim Michels in the Republican primary for governor Tuesday night, setting the businessman up to take on incumbent Democratic Gov. Tony Evers in the fall. Michels defeated primary rivals Rebecca Kleefisch and Tim Ramthun in the primary. As of 11:35 p.m., Michels had 47% of the total votes cast, while Kleefisch had 42.5% and Ramthun had 5.8%. In his victory speech, Michels said the race is about standing up for hard-working people and that jobs and the economy will be his top priority if he makes it to the...

    A left-wing social justice activist responded to the horrific tragedy at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin by sardonically commenting “poor white people” and joking that the murderer acted in “self-defense” against the crowd. Yes, really. At least five people were killed and dozens more injured after a suspect allegedly identified as as Darrell Edward Brooks Jr, a 39-year-old black male with a long criminal history, ploughed through victims while driving a speeding red SUV. Some of the victims included a dance team of girls aged between 9 and 15 years old. Footage of the attack in downtown Waukesha during...

    Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) is facing an uphill battle for reelection, according to a poll released Monday. The survey, conducted July 6-8 by Cygnal, found 52 percent of likely voters think it’s “time for someone new,” while 45 percent said the first-term governor deserves another term. Evers defeated former Gov. Scott Walker (R) in 2018 by 1.1 percentage points. Respondents hold a net-unfavorable view (-4) of Evers’ job performance, according to the poll of 640 likely general election voters. Those surveyed believe the state is on the wrong track more so than the country: 60 percent said Wisconsin is...

    Days before the State of Wisconsin denied Foxconn's request for state tax credits - in the form of direct payments from the state to Foxconn's bank account - related to the "factory" built by the world's largest contract tech manufacturer in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin. The project was announced shortly after President Trump's upset election victory, but quickly ran aground as reporters complained that the facility being built by Foxconn bore little resemblance to the enormous Gen 10.5 LCD factory the company had promised. In fact, the factory isn't even big enough to serve as a smaller Gen 6 LCD...
  • Scott Walker Provides a Deeper Dive Into Why Wisconsin Is a Swing State

    08/30/2020 9:12:29 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | August 30, | Beth Bauman
    Wisconsin. It's a state that's known for its dairy farms, cheese curds and the Green Bay Packers. The state is often overlooked and lumped in with other states in the midwest as simply a "flyover" area. But as November quickly approaches, all eyes are on the Badger State. It's considered a swing state. Wisconsinites went for Barack Obama in 2012 and President Donald Trump in 2016. It's a state Hillary Clinton abandoned all together and it's Democrats' general attitude towards Wisconsinites that has Republicans confident Trump can carry the state again this election cycle. What's amazing, however, is how little...

    President Donald Trump hosted a campaign rally in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the same night the Democratic National Convention was scheduled to kick off in Milwaukee. While Democrats instead opted for a virtual conference to avoid spreading the coronavirus, Trump drew a crowd of at least 1,000 people. In off-the-cuff remarks, Trump suggested to Republicans that if they wanted to win elections, they had to keep cannabis legalization off the ballot. Though the Trump Administration has attacked cannabis reform in behind-closed-doors proceedings and by blocking legislative action, this is the first time the President has made negative comments about cannabis in public....

    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...

    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...

    The Orlando Sentinel ^ | November 15, 2019 | Steven Lemongello
    A federal court in Tallahassee struck down a Florida law that listed the governor’s party first on all ballots, which Democrats argued gave Republicans a significant advantage in a state where the two biggest races in 2018 were both within 0.4 percentage points. In his ruling, District Court Judge Mark Walker issued a permanent injunction against the law, stating it violates both the First and 14th amendments of the Constitution. “Florida’s ballot order statute is not neutral; instead, it affects Plaintiffs’ rights in a politically discriminatory way,” Walker wrote. “… It is difficult to imagine what other purpose it could...

    MADISON, Wis. — In a significant victory for the Republican-controlled Legislature, and a rebuke of Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ swift political purge, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the reinstatement of more than a dozen public servants confirmed during December’s controversial extraordinary legislative session. The 4-3 decision also is a stinging criticism of a liberal Dane County judge’s previous ruling and arguably signals how the conservative-led court will ultimately rule on the appeal before it. Seizing a narrow window of legal opportunity, Evers in March rescinded 82 appointments confirmed by the Legislature just weeks before the Democrat took office....

    House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes filed a $150 million lawsuit in Virginia state court against The McClatchy Company and others on Monday, alleging that one of the news agency's reporters conspired with a political operative to derail Nunes' oversight work into the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russian election interference. The filing, obtained by Fox News, came a day after Nunes, R-Calif., revealed he would send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department this week concerning purported surveillance abuses by federal authorities, false statements to Congress and other matters. In March, Nunes filed a similar $250 million lawsuit alleging...
