    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has gone on record praising the storming of the Capitol as an "impressive show of democracy in action" -- the 2011 invasion of the Madison, Wis., state capitol, that is. [snip] Ten years earlier, unionists stormed the Wisconsin State Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on collective bargaining reform. Thousands of demonstrators managed to enter the building by violently breaking down doors and shattering windows -- but the attack garnered much praise from Pelosi and other prominent Democrats at the time. The occupiers were praised publically by Pelosi for their "impressive show of democracy...

    MADISON — Tax and spend Tony does it again — this time looking to tax the small businesses his administration has driven to the brink of extinction with lockdowns and other COVID-19 health edicts. Gov. Tony Evers’ Department of Revenue last week quietly issued guidance that ignores federal COVID-19 relief legislation language on tax liability and aims to tax tens of thousands of Wisconsin businesses that received funding through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). “Gov. Tony Evers and the DOR are looking to skim the federal money that came down to our small businesses so they can grow the coffers...

    Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager charged with killing two people during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the summer, was recently spotted drinking at a bar and posing for photos with apparent Proud Boys sympathizers after being released from jail on $2 million bond, prosecutors say. Now, prosecutors in the state have filed a motion to modify Rittenhouse's bond conditions. Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, was charged as an adult with two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of attempted homicide. He also faces charges of recklessly endangering the safety of two other victims and possessing...

    Kyle Rittenhouse flashed a hand sign adopted by some white supremacist groups and was “loudly serenaded” with a song reportedly adopted by the far-right group the Proud Boys as the 18-year-old drank at a Wisconsin bar last week, prosecutors said in a court filing Wednesday. Kenosha County prosecutors asked a judge to modify the rules Rittenhouse has to follow while he’s free on $2 million bail as he awaits trial on murder and other charges for shooting three men, two of them fatally, with an AR-15-style rifle during chaotic protests Aug. 25.

    MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Tony Evers has authorized the Wisconsin National Guard to support the state’s Capitol Police. National Guard members will mobilize to help with security efforts at the Wisconsin State Capitol, according to a news release Monday. The announcement comes hours after the FBI warned of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C. ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Less than a week has passed since a mob of pro-Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon. Crews in Madison have boarded up windows at the State Capitol building as a...

    In a not entirely surprising decision, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to expedite election appeals filed by President Donald Trump (including Lin Wood's suit) to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victories in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.This does not mean the cases are dismissed but the justices won’t consider them until later this winter; and, as @steve_vladeck pointed out, they should all be moot by that point, though the justices can always find a way to rule.Without comment, #SCOTUS denies the pending motions to expedite in eight pending election-related disputes. This means it will consider the requests that it take up the cases...

  • Wisconsin legislature moves towards decertifying electors: If they do, This will be the first state to decertify electors. Hopefully, it won't be the last for this election.

    There has been a tricky game being played by the state legislatures in some of the contested states following the fraudulent presidential election. The Republican majorities in states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Georgia generally want to decertify electors, but they’re faced with multiple dilemmas. The biggest one is optics; thanks in large part to mainstream media ignoring and Big Tech suppressing credible reports of massive voter fraud, millions of voters in these states are left without a clue about why decertification is necessary.It appears Wisconsin is the first state to take a serious stab at it. Others have written letters...
