  • Don’t believe the lies, Wisconsin women win with [Governor] Walker (R, WI)

    Right Wisconsin Editorial ^ | 2-22-18 | Leah Vukmir
    Recently, six female Democrat legislators authored an opinion piece accusing Gov. Scott Walker of leaving women behind. The column was full of delusions from the Left, claiming to be the voice for all women, presuming we don’t differ in opinion, classifying us as a group that needs to be spoken for, and refusing to consider that perhaps not ALL women see things through such a narrow lens. Liberal women speaking out that government ought to be the sole protector for women is not new — we, of course, should be so grateful for their superior enlightenment. But as a woman,...

    In Tuesday’s Wisconsin Supreme Court Election primary, Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock and Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Rebecca Dallet advanced to the general election in April. Screnock received the most votes, over 46 percent, according to the latest tally from the Associated Press. Dallet finished second with nearly 36 percent of the vote. “Tonight’s results serve as proof that voters across Wisconsin value the importance of a fair and impartial judiciary focused on upholding the rule of law and respecting our Constitution and the separation of powers, regardless of their political affiliation,” Screnock said after his primary victory. “I...
  • Liberals outraged: Trump wants to replace food stamps — with food!

    In his big budget proposal Monday, President Trump offered a novel idea: Instead of giving needy people stamps they can redeem for food, why not just give them actual food? As you might guess, liberals were enraged by the notion. How dare Mr. Trump try to take food stamps away from hungry people and give them — of all things — food? Here’s how the liberal HuffPost saw it: “Facing a trillion-dollar deficit because of his just-passed tax cuts, President Donald Trump has an idea for how to get some of that money back: making poor people eat beans and...
  • What Kind Of Society Condemns People For Praying After A School Shooting?

    No matter our passion and sincerity, human wisdom alone will not solve the terrible problem of mass shootings in America. A heavily-armed and deranged 19-year old unleashed hell in Broward County, Florida, on Wednesday. The mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland left 17 dead, families devastated, and a school and community forever scarred. Americans have historically turned to faith and prayer in tragic times such as these. But times are changing. When it comes to mass shootings today, public expressions of sympathy and calls for prayer are increasingly answered with scorn and derision. In the hours...
  • Dems Distance Themselves From Bill Clinton in Attempt to Avoid Hypocrisy During 2018 Midterms

    In the lead up to the 2018 midterm elections, many Democrats are focused on embracing the #MeToo movement and therefore see former President Bill Clinton as "too toxic" to campaign for Democratic candidates. The party has recognized the inherent conflict with embracing Clinton, who has faced multiple sexual assault allegations, while also embracing the #MeToo movement and working to rally women against President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress. Despite Clinton having had an active role in campaigns in the past, many Democrats do not want him getting involved in competitive races across the country, according to Politico. "I think...
  • Millennials need to save marriage. Society depends on it

    Of the many things that millennials find themselves doing, saying “I do” and starting a family does not seem to be one of them. A 2014 Pew Research study found that the average age range that millennials tied the knot was in their late 20s. Women aren’t getting married until 27, while men are waiting until 29. Your grandparents' generation? They got married by 25 or younger. But what isn’t included in this study is the number of millennials who are moving in together without getting married. While many would argue that is “preparing for marriage” or “discovering your sexual...

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.), who is vying for the Republican nomination to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) in the Senate, received a big endorsement Tuesday from the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List. Susan B. Anthony List, which was founded in the 1990s, is an organization composed of 333,000 advocates who help elect pro-life men and women to Congress. The organization's goal is to reduce the number of abortions performed nationwide and ensure that pro-life voices are included in public discourse. SBA specifically listed Blackburn's pro-life record and her willingness to defund Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical...

    The Atlantic ^ | 2-9-18 | Russell Berman
    Democratic Representative Rick Nolan of Minnesota won’t seek another term, becoming the latest member of Congress to forego reelection. Here's a running list of all the lawmakers calling it quits. If you want to see a political wave forming a year before an election, watch the retirements. They’re often a leading indicator for which direction a party is headed, and so far, 2018 is shaping up ominously for Republicans, who will be defending twice as many open seats this fall as Democrats. But on Friday, the GOP received some rare good retirement news when Democratic Representative Rick Nolan of Minnesota...

    Following a Democrat’s special election win in a Wisconsin Senate district that voted for President Donald Trump, a group backed by former President Barack Obama said it plans to invest millions of dollars into state-wide elections in Wisconsin and 10 other states. The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, said this year’s election cycle is critical to affecting the congressional redistricting process. It is the first cycle whose winners will participate in drawing congressional maps for the decade starting in 2021. The committee backed Democrat Patty Schachtner in last month’s election in the 10th...

    The Federalist Papers Project ^ | 2-6-18 | Brian Thomas
    A new map posted by HowMuch.net breaks down the economic toll of illegal immigrants state by state, and their findings are extremely troubling. Using information gathered from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, How Much’s map shows how much money illegal immigrants cost American taxpayers on a state-by-state basis. California is most devastated by the heavy toll, with a whopping $23 billion in that state alone. States closer to the Mexican border are most affected, but several states throughout the country still pay billions to support illegal immigrants through education, welfare, law enforcement, and medical care. The map doesn’t include...

    The 2018 Gerber baby is Lucas Warren, a 1-year-old from Dalton, Georgia who is the first child with Down syndrome to be named a Gerber baby since the contest's start in 2010. "He's very outgoing and never meets a stranger," Lucas's mom, Cortney, told TODAY Parents. "He loves to play, loves to laugh and loves to make other people laugh." Cortney Warren said she entered the Gerber contest on a whim, after a relative pointed out an ad seeking submissions. After posting a photo of Lucas on Instagram using the contest's hashtag, Cortney and her husband, Jason, received the news...

    Qaisar Mahmood, a Muslim born in Pakistan, is the new head of the Swedish National Heritage Board. This is an extremely anomalous appointment, since he readily admits that he has not read anything about Sweden’s cultural heritage. But his new job is not really about preserving and protecting Sweden’s cultural heritage and historical sites at all. Qaisar Mahmood, who once rode his motorcycle around Sweden in an apparently failed attempt to discover what being Swedish consisted of, is using his position as head of the Swedish National Heritage Board not to highlight and celebrate that heritage, but to downplay Sweden’s...

    This is the mummified dog who was found by loggers inside a tree trunk 20 years after he got stuck while chasing a 'raccoon' and starved to death in Georgia. The dog, known as Stuckie, was discovered in 1980 when loggers for the Kraft Corporation cut the oak into logs. They found the mummified hunting dog lodged in a hollow stretch near the top of the tree - and he is now the main attraction at Forest World, a tree museum in Waycross, Georgia. Stuckie's body was mummified instead of decomposing because the updraft of air in the hollow tree...

    Concerned Veterans for America is joining the campaign against Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., a top Republican target in 2018, with a $1.5 million digital and statewide television advertising buy. Baldwin is up for re-election this year, and this investment from CVA, a group that operates under the umbrella of political groups established by billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch, highlights what it claims is the Democrat's "failure to address the Tomah VA scandal." The group's ads will also encourage "the public to call her and urge her to support more health care options for veterans." A few years ago, issues...

    The Democratic Party of Wisconsin on Monday admitted it is "free and easy" for Wisconsin voters to obtain a photo ID despite arguing in the past that voter ID laws suppress minority voters and disenfranchise "so many people." The party sent out a tweet on Monday letting voters know that the primary election for the Wisconsin Supreme Court was coming up on Feb. 20 and that it was "free and easy" for voters to obtain a photo ID to vote. The tweet included a link to inform voters about the various forms of ID that are acceptable on election day....

    An Arizona man, previously identified as a person of interest in the Las Vegas shooting investigation, was charged by authorities Friday for manufacturing and selling armor-piercing bullets without having a proper license, according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press. Fingerprints belonging to Douglas Haig, 55, were found by investigators on a stash of unused armor-piercing ammo in the Mandalay Bay hotel room from which Stephen Paddock launched his bloody Oct. 1 assault, the documents said. It wasn’t noted if the bullets were the type used in the attack. Paddock, the lone gunman in the shooting, fired a stream...

    In a breaking report coming out of Paris, France, 52 ‘large and potentially very aggressive baboons’ escaped from their enclosures in the city’s largest zoo. The park went on lockdown in an effort to recapture the beasts. All primates were seen running through the Vincennes woods, just after midday. ‘It’s not known how they got out, but everything is being done to try and get them under control,’ said a source at the Zoological Park. ‘The whole area has been shut down, with only trained professionals involved in the security operation. ‘They include three operatives with rifles who will be...
  • New CA Bill: Waiters Will Serve 6 Months In Prison For Handing Out ‘Unsolicited’ Straws

    A California lawmaker has introduced a new bill that would make it illegal to distribute single-use straws to consumers at restaurants unless specifically requested. Ian Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California’s lower house, brought forth Assembly Bill 1884, citing environmental protection as a reason to discourage the use of “single use straws,” typically distributed with soft drinks, smoothies, and coffee, which are then disposed of after being used. “We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon stated in a media release. “AB 1884...
  • Feminists To Women: You’re Consenting To Sex Wrong

    The Federalist ^ | 1-25-18 | Robert Tracinski
    'Enthusiastic consent' is just another way of telling problematic women they're doing things wrong by lecturing them on how to have politically correct sex. I’m not the first to observe that a lot of modern feminism consists of loud sloganeering about women’s choice and empowerment, behind a small subset of women looks down on other women and tells them they’re making the wrong choices. If you don’t believe me, try being a conservative woman (especially one who opposes abortion), or a stay-at-home mom, or someone who thinks the #MeToo campaign has become an out-of-control warlock hunt. We can also see...
  • The Raw Water Trend: Why experts aren’t buying in

    Last year, cryotherapy and charcoal ice cream were the latest wellness crazes. But 2018 may just be the year of raw water, a health trend convincing people to dig deep into their pockets to buy an untreated version of what comes from the tap. Marketers of raw water say skipping the water treatment process makes the product better for your health, as naturally occurring probiotics, electrolytes and silica are not filtered out. Raw water also ditches tap water additives like chloramine, a disinfectant, and flouride, which is said to reduce tooth decay. Live Water, a California-based raw water distributor, says...
