Whoopsie! The Recording of Waukesha Killer’s Bail Hearing Goes Missing

 

Man, these Democrats sure have technological issues at critical times. With Milwaukee County DA John Chisholm’s Office under fire for low bail and lenient prosecutions, the recording system that typically records these hearings of this particular murderer can’t be found! The car that killed and injured those people may be responsible.

If we get rid of Gov. Tony Evers in 2022 (and our timid GOP majorities find the fortitude to affect change), I’m hoping for many reforms, one of them being that ‘missing’ files, documents, notes, voter applications & records, camera footage & recordings of government offices and officials will be considered as of intent to destroy evidence and prosecuted as such.

Well I know that I was one of several Ricochetti that were fantasizing about seeing that oh so punchable Christopher Wray or that Gina Haspel over at the CIA being summarily fired, marched out of their respective burrows under the supervision of building security. That was until the election results scrapped that daydream.  Still, regardless […]

‘Intelligence Officials’ tell teams of Washington Post and NY Times investigative reporters that Medal of Honor recipient Conan actually has drinking problem and that said “heroic raid” was really drunken case of mistaken identity and that Al Baghdadi was in fact an “Austere Religious Leader” and that the Trump White House is involved in massive […]

My first encounter with Jewish people consisted of me meeting their ghosts – at Auschwitz. I was a twelve year old Catholic altar boy from the suburbs of Chicago, the year was 1976 and I was visiting Poland with my late father & mother as well as my sister. Dad was last in Poland when […]

Was planning on generating post about the GOP Minority Leadership election, advocating my hope that Jim Jordan or (at least) Steve Scalise would be elected Minority Leader when I saw news this afternoon. Those McCarthy  ‘Secure Our Border’ PAC ads they (and let’s face it folks, ads that ‘he’ ran) had been setting my teeth […]

Listening to WISN on Governor’s Scott Walker’s apparent defeat – this one hurt. We shot ourselves in the foot, t, cut our nose off to spite our face, but we didn’t “go full stupid”. The GOP retains control the WI State Senate and Assembly (definitely split tickets) so there will be a check on this […]

I’ve tried and will try to not make this post about Trump. Wasn’t my guy and have to say I nearly hit the eject button when that Access Hollywood tape was released. My wife, who typically votes with me, I don’t think did this time. Our oldest daughter who was to vote for the first […]

This is my first post on a Trump related topic. I hope that it will examine ground that hasn’t been covered. I was reading yet another thoughtful post by @davecarter and he touched on a point that not many others had examined though there was one post on the competing punditry of Ace of Spades […]

http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/08/26/gop-establishment-attacks-another-conservative-candidate-backing-crypto-democrat/ Not looking to argue anymore, it’s really clear what’s going on here. The Establishment Faction is out to reassert dominance in the coalition and it’s been very effective. We don’t have the money they have, looks as though we don’t have the votes anymore either. Still think we’ve got the best arguments but don’t […]

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2016/08/how-the-gop-feeds-the-beast.php Lord knows I’ve got issues with Trump and the Populists but I’m certain they haven’t lit this flaming bag and placed it on the taxpayers doorstep.I think that entitlement reform will be an easier sell when departments like these see their budget, better yet department killed, buried and the ground salted.

For those looking for a bit of fun and diversion from all that’s going on, I’d like to recommend a Netflix French comedy series: A Very Secret Service (I know, it’s French and it’s a French comedy no less – who would have guessed!) but I have to give them kudos on this one, I […]

How Deep the Cracks? Wisconsin May Give an Indication.

 

Well, I just voted after dropping our youngest off at school. Voting in our precinct was pretty brisk; I voted proudly for Ted Cruz. But there is another statewide race for Supreme Court Justice that may indicate how deep the party fractures are and whether we can unite at the state and local level regardless of what happens at top of ticket.

Judge Rebecca Bradley has been promoted rather quickly (have to be honest, maybe too quickly) through the judicial ranks to the State Supreme Court by Governor Walker after the death opened a position on the court. The perennial Progressive/Liberal/Commie JoAnne Kloppenburg has yet again dusted off the lawn signs (behind the Prius in the garage, I’m sure) and would help bolster the leftist balance of the court if elected. If Bradley wins, the reforms enacted by Walker and GOP State Assembly and Senate will be further cemented and the climate here will continue to improve.

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/361618.php Not the most computer savvy person so I hope I’ve linked this properly but more importantly, given Ace of Spades and Ross Douthat proper attribution. It’s a pretty interesting theory/review of the discord on our side. One I find insightful and think explains quite a lot. I’ve been reading Ace of Spades quite a […]

I’ve given to political candidates. Not often and not very much. I’ve received Christmas cards from Governor Walker. My kids think we’re family friends or something. It was worth the $50 bucks just for that. I’m a player. Why did I give? Why do ‘they’, the Big Money Boys, give? Have my meager donations simply […]

What a collection bunch of sanctimonious, hectoring, out-of-tune PC crap! There was that insurance commercial about a dead kid? ‘This Land is Your Land’ – in China, Brazil, Australia and the Jeep drives by some chick in headscarf? Something about homosexuals I just want to watch a game and laugh a little. Shoveling snow for the […]

I disagreed with John Podhoretz when he was talking about the Democrats’  GOTV operation as light years ahead of the GOP’s. That’s not to imply that they didn’t do a first-rate job of getting their voters to the polls, I’m just suspect of this perception that they have an almost supernatural ability to tailor their […]
