  • NRA slams Trump’s Wisconsin candidate over false endorsement

    The National Rifle Association on Monday issued a stinging rebuke of former President Donald Trump’s pick for Wisconsin governor, accusing him of misleading its members after his campaign falsely claimed the gun advocacy group had endorsed him. Construction company co-owner Tim Michels is locked in a three-way GOP primary with former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and state Rep. Tim Ramthun. Michels won Trump’s endorsement in June. An endorsement from the NRA would have marked another huge win for him heading into the Aug. 9 election. Michels’ campaign sent out a flyer that landed in mailboxes Saturday that claimed the NRA...

    From the Inside Flap The tide is turning. “In 2016, for the first time in nearly 60 years, a Republican candidate for president, Donald J. Trump, received more than 20% of the black vote in the key swing state of Pennsylvania . . . [and] in the key state of Michigan. In reality, it was black Americans who made the election of President Trump possible.” —Vernon Robinson and Bruce Eberle Once this reversal, underway for decades, is complete, it’s all over for the Democratic Party. In Coming Home, conservative activists Vernon Robinson and Bruce Eberle trace not only black American...

    We say happy birthday to the Grand Old Party, the GOP, or, the Republican Party. The birth of the party happened in Ripon, Wisconsin, on this day in 1854. The new party was formed by former members of the Whig Party to oppose the spread of slavery into the western territories. In my case, I became a de facto Republican after the Kennedy administration fumbled The Bay of Pigs invasion.

    The student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Madison refused to publish an op-ed that arguing against the “defund the police” movement over the fear of backlash. The op-ed was penned and submitted by Tripp Grebe, who worked as a conservative columnist for the student paper, called the Badger-Herald. In it, Grebe criticized calls to defund and abolish police departments. The paper’s initial response: At the beginning of the fall semester, Samira Bhushan, an opinion editor at the paper, sent an email to Grebe, informing him that his stance too controversial and might invite “backlash.”

    CNN changed a chyron during a segment early this week on the violent protests in Wisconsin over the weekend, removing the word “violent” from the chyron—even though the protests were, in fact, violent. During a live broadcast on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” the network aired the following chyron: 00:3800:56 8PM CURFEW ORDERED AFTER VIOLENT PROTESTS OVER POLICE SHOOTING OF UNARMED BLACK MAN IN WISCONSIN Several seconds later the chyron was taken down and was then put back up on the screen after the network removed the word “violent” from it: 8PM CURFEW ORDERED AFTER PROTESTS OVER POLICE...

    Even with all of the lockdown restrictions, voters somehow managed to make it to the polls yesterday for two special elections and the Republican candidates appear to have locked both of them down (if you’ll pardon the phrase). The first one was in Wisconsin and the result wasn’t much of a surprise. In the Seventh District, the race to replace the now-retired Sean Duffy is projected to go to Tom Tiffany. The 7th is a fairly solidly conservative district and Tiffany had garnered the endorsement of President Trump. (Associated Press) Tom Tiffany, a state senator endorsed by President Donald...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 3/19/2020 | Charles Fain Lehman
    Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) introduced legislation Thursday to repatriate pharmaceutical manufacturing from China to America, aiming to reduce a dependency that could seriously limit the U.S. coronavirus response. The bill, which Cotton introduced with Rep. Mike Gallagher (R., Wis.), aims to severely curtail the volume of Chinese active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) from the U.S. medical drug supply. The PRC currently produces most of the world's APIs—the "active ingredients" in commonly used drugs—leaving the United States and other nations critically dependent on it for medicines.

    Between 27,000 and 200,000 Wisconsinites were "turned away" from the polls in 2016 due to lack of proper identification. — Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, September 17th, 2019 in a speech at George Washington University Hillary Clinton just can’t quit Wisconsin. Or, more specifically, can’t quit blaming its voting system for her 2016 electoral defeat. The Democratic presidential candidate has repeatedly criticized the state’s voter ID law, which was in place for the first time in the election that pitted Clinton against Republican Donald Trump. And she’s repeatedly found herself at odds with the facts. In May 2017, Clinton claimed that...

    Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton blamed voter suppression for her 2016 loss, and threw her support behind claims made by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams regarding the 2018 Georgia governor race. "You can run the best campaign, you can have the best plans, you can get the nomination, you can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election for these four reasons. Number one, voter suppression," Clinton said Tuesday an "In Defense of Democracy" event at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

    It will be a day at the beach for President Trump’s re-election campaign on Labor Day. The campaign is taking to the skies on Labor Day to fly banners over beach-goers to show its thanks for workers fueling the economy. “Labor Day is the perfect time to thank American workers for everything they do for our country,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director. “Under President Trump’s policies, the economy is strong and growing, and more Americans are working than ever before. The American economy is the envy of the world and our American workers are the best on the...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — As Democratic presidential candidates descended on the Iowa State Fair, a plane buzzed overhead, an ominous warning fluttering behind it on a banner: “Focus on Rural America.” Democrats hoping to win the White House in 2020 recognize how critical that advice is after 2016, when Hillary Clinton turned in strong performances in many cities and suburbs but lost rural voters 2-to-1, falling short to President Donald Trump by slim margins in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Democrats clawed back some gains in rural counties in the 2018 midterm elections, and they want to build on that...

    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted Wednesday that President Donald Trump's "record of accomplishment is why he'll win re-election," a significant difference from comments the Wisconsin Republican made earlier this week where he described how he thought some Democrats could beat Trump in the 2020 election. "To be clear, GOP wins elections when they're about ideas not when they're personality contests like Dems & media want. We're clearly better off because of @RealDonaldTrump," stated Ryan's tweet Wednesday from his @SpeakerRyan official account. "His record of accomplishment is why he'll win re-election especially when compared to Dems' leftward lurch." Ryan, who...

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is preparing an early focus on Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, states that were instrumental to his improbable 2016 victory but where his support has softened, two campaign advisers said. The decision to accelerate campaign organising and eventually get the Republican president to make trips to the three states is a recognition that Trump’s path to re-election in 2020 will need to repeat some of the successes he had in 2016. Advisers also see a need to bolster Trump’s support in Florida, a battleground state he considers his second home but where opinion polls show him...

    MOSINEE (CBS 58) - President Donald Trump is coming to Wisconsin. The President is making a stop in Mosinee to campaign for republican candidates. Residents like Curtis Beste say the presidential visit is big news for a small town. “That’s good for us, being a small town and really out of the big city areas, but we have a big enough airport to get some sizable planes in there,” said Beste. He has to work and probably won’t go, but a lot of his neighbors will. “I think it’ll be packed, people are really talking about it,” said Beste. “I...

    American political leaders of both parties are paying tribute and offering prayers for ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, but President Donald Trump has so far been silent. Neither the White House nor the president has yet spoken out after McCain's family announced Friday that the former prisoner of war and longtime public servant would no longer seek medical treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are praising McCain and offering prayers for his family, as is Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee....

    Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar wants a border wall, and he's ready to order the military to do the job. In an amendment filed on Wednesday to a defense spending bill, Gosar proposed authorizing the Secretary of the Army to carry out President Trump's signature campaign promise of a security wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Gosar's proposal was tucked in the slew of amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act, a massive annual appropriations exercise that determines military spending and policy. The Hill reported Gosar's amendment in a roundup of the most notable of the 554 amendments to the NDAA that...
