There is some good news for Gov. Walker and our campaign coming out of Wisconsin today!

According to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Wisconsin's unemployment rate dropped to 6.9%, the lowest since December of 2008 and remains well below the the national rate!

Not only that, but spurred on by the leadership and reforms of Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin added 15,700 private-sector jobs in December and January.

What makes these numbers even more impressive is that they happened DESPITE the union led recall against him which has instilled uncertainty in the Wisconsin economy and political system. Imagine all that Gov. Walker could get accomplished if he were actually allowed to do the job he was elected to do!

The mainstream media is rooting against us and you can be sure they will not report these positive numbers.

When we have good news like this, we must do all that we can to spread the word and offer a balance to all the lies and rhetoric that the unions and liberal left are spewing.

Tea Party Express is continuing to defend Walker, but we need your help NOW! When we have good news like this, we must do all that we can to spread the word.

Please don’t hesitate. Donate and help us stand up for Walker and the Tea Party values that are under attack by Obama’s campaign machine and his radical union mobs!

The Tea Party Express is planning a major bus tour to defend Governor Walker and will be making an announcement soon.

The Tea Party Express not only helps to elect conservatives, but also defends them when they make the hard, but courageous decisions. Join the Tea Party Express and send Obama a message: We the People will NOT be bullied and we will NOT be silenced! We are here to fight for our country and defend the principles she was founded on!

Liberal activist judge has even MORE questionable ties to Walker Recall!

Yesterday, we brought to your attention the story of the strange circumstances that surrounded Dane County Judge David Flanagan's decision to STOP a voter ID law that would help prevent fraud in Wisconsin elections.

Now the plot thickens. (facts courtesy of our friends at RedState)

  • This just happens to prevent Voter ID from being implemented in Wisconsin’s open Presidential primary in April 3rd. Normally that wouldn’t be all that big a deal, except that this year the Democrats are openly calling for disrupting the Republican nomination process.
  • And this just happens to be a judge who has former Kathleen Falk (and current Wisconsin Education Association Council) adviser Melissa Mulliken as his campaign manager. This is important because Falk is of course running against Scott Walker in the recall election – and WEAC has preemptively endorsed Falk. Also, Mulliken has been prominent in the anti-Walker crusade.
The unions are pulling out all the stops in Wisconsin, and they have some very powerful friends on their side. Judge David Flanagan has proven to be a committed liberal activist, serving as a member of the ACLU for 20 years!
..

Liberal Activist Judge David Flanagan
.
We knew the unions weren’t going to play fair, but after reading Judge Flanagan’s 11-page order stopping the voter ID law, it is clear he is uninterested in making impartial and thoughtful decisions from the bench. This sloppy judicial order references “Justice William Scalia,” instead of his actual name, Justice Antonin Scalia. He then goes on to refer to the wrong section of the State Constitution, which refers to slavery, instead of the one referring to voter eligibility.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO STOP THE LIBERAL ARMY FROM STEALING THIS ELECTION.

I love the fact that the unions are firehosing money at Walker's recall.

Perhaps, but ‘women and minorities were hurt’ by the job growth, or it was done ‘on the backs of the poor’.

Hopefully it will be money thrown down a hole, not accomplishing anything.

Here's the corrupt Judge's signature on a petition for the recall, which he adjudicated for also:

It may start in the middle of the country, but hopefully out here so it would be easier for you to convoy along.

I'm from PA but I just sent Walker another small donation today. Every thing that we as Americans can do to help Walker and the rest of the pubbies that are under assault in Wisconsin should be done.

This is a big deal, not just for WI, but for the backbone of all other pubbie gubbernors; you know that having balls is a new experience for most of them and when our pubbie women governors have more brass than most of our men, we've got to help the men with the cosmetic operation "addsomeballstome".

Give him a hand, err, I meant send him some cash :)

This is a “pocketbook” election year - just like 1992 ...

Any incumbant who was elected on a platform of financial responsibility, impliments his/her plans, and the plans actually work is gonna be re-elected or avoid being recalled ...

Guv Walker doesn’t have anything to worry about - with falling unemployment and rising tax receipts in the state’s coffers ...

You contradict yourself with your post.

“It's a pocketbook election”

(the unions are spending millions)

“Guv Walker doesn’t have anything to worry about”

Walker has limited funds.

“with falling unemployment and rising tax receipts in the state’s coffers”

That's what the unions hate about his administration, his policies are working good...for the little people.

The unions would kill to get him out of office...literally!

Wisconsin [like much of the nation] was in dire straits before Walker took office.

Walker pushes through reforms dealing with unions, etc. and things have started to turn around.

Business is being attracted to the state.

Unemployment is going down.

This reduced unemployment is adding revenue to the state treasury in the form of increased income tax receipts [due to more employment].

The unions are pissed since a lot of their “bennies” were eliminated. So, they want a recall to “put things back the way they were”.

They are fuggin’ crazy!

All Walker needs to do is say:

“There more jobs in the state, your taxes have not gone up, and there is more food on your table for your children ...”

I wish we had Walker here in Maryland ...

Where in MD? I'm in Montgomery County ...

O'Malley is a tool - he is under the delusion that he is Presidential Timber for 2016 ...

He ain't gonna get the increase in the flush tax, he ain't gonna get the 6% sales tax on gas [although he might get 5-10 cents flat on it], he ain't gonna get the 6% sales tax on cable TV, and he ain't gonna get the 50% toss back of pensions to the counties ...

The only thing he might get is the $2 per month on electric bills for "wind farms" ...

Add to that the likely defeat of the "DREAM Act" and the 50-50 chance that same-sex marriage gets defeated at the polls ...

BTW: A recent poll in MD said that 70% think O'Malley WOULD NOT make a good President ...

O’Malley wouldn’t make a good dog catcher.

I live in St Mary’s County, Southern Md.
Take a look at this dumb idea.

http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2012-02-16/news/bs-md-boating-fee-increase-20120216_1_boat-registration-boat-owners-sport-fishing-boat

Raising boat registration from $20 bucks to between $50 and $700. I will sell my boat, the hell with it, I can’t swim in the filthy waters, and crabs and oysters are in short supply , the fishing isn’t that good, and a new 40 hp Outboard motor costs $6,000 dollars. The hell with it.

Whoever thought this up should have the bill in its entirety stuffed up his ass. Sideways.

Thankfully, the Dems in the Senate have stepped in it--big time. As with the Keystone nationally, there was a mining initiative that the Gov was trying to get passed that would have brought billions to the state - tons of UNION jobs, much needed employment for a very depressed area of the state, and more manufacturing jobs to Milwaukee (lots of mining equip mfgs here).

The Democrats (and one RINO Republican) fought tooth and nail to load the bill with poison pills and raised phony "environmental" concerns. The Senate majority leader brought forth the cleaner Assembly-approved bill, added a few "concessions" to the Dems and put it up for a vote. It failed along party lines, with the final failing vote being the "maverick" RINO.

While they were high-fiving themselves, the mining company, weary of endless games and of spending money on a lost cause, shocked them back to reality when they told Wisconsin to pound sand. They are taking their investment to Michigan, who will be happy to take the jobs and the money.

Let me tell you, the private sector union guys are PISSED. I think they are finally getting it that the Dems are happy to take their union money but will sell their livelihoods down the river in a heartbeat to just to try and make Governor Walker look bad.

In a better economy they might have been able to smooth talk them into calming down, but I think they made a huge tactical error that could bring about the return of the Reagan Democrats.

Sounds like contributors may be contacted for permission to transfer funds from campaign contributions to his legal defense fund:

“According to the website, officials can transfer a donation into a legal defense fund only if they have the contributor’s consent. Lobbyists can’t contribute to the funds, and the official creating the fund has to release the names of all donors who give at least $50.”
