    The Daily Signal-Commentary ^ | April 19, 2018 | Jason Snead
    Despite the lack of media coverage, evidence of election fraud continues to mount. This week, The Heritage Foundation added 26 new entries to its election fraud database, bringing the searchable ledger to a total of 1,132 proven instances of election fraud. That includes 983 cases that ended in a criminal conviction, 48 that led to civil penalties, 79 where defendants were enrolled in a diversion program, and 22 cases of official or judicial findings of fraud. Americans should be alarmed. These entries represent irrefutable evidence that fraud has impacted elections in 47 states, and across all levels of government. Worse...
  • Tax Freedom Day Comes Sooner in Right to Work States

    Today (April 19) “Tax Freedom Day” 2018 has finally arrived, according to the nonpartisan Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation. As the Tax Foundation explains, Tax Freedom Day (TFD) “is the day when the nation as a whole has earned enough money to pay its entire tax bill for the year.” TFD “takes all federal, state and local taxes and divides them by the nation’s income.” According to the Tax Foundation’s current estimate, this year Americans will pay “$3.39 trillion in federal taxes and $1.80 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total tax bill of $5.19 trillion … .” That...

    Although the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) doesn’t affect tax returns filed for 2017 (due this week), Americans already have a lot to celebrate about the new tax law. Independent Women’s Voice asked women to share on social media how tax reform had affected them, and many women did. Their stories ought to be told. First, there were the increased paychecks for people like Rebecca, Brianna, Laura, and Debra. Rebecca told us she had reservations about President Trump, but was nevertheless excited that tax reform will benefit her family “significantly.” Brianna said she’s getting $234 more in each paycheck,...

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...

    When House Speaker Paul Ryan announced his plans to retire from Congress at the end of his current term, the open seat created an opportunity for both Republicans and Democrats. A number of local politicians are considering possible runs in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. Here’s a list of who’s in and who’s out. Republicans: Possibly in: State Sen. Dave Craig (R-Town of Vernon) is still considering a run, saying on Facebook his family is praying about the decision. Craig is a former staff member for Ryan and a conservative favorite. Craig’s Senate seat is not up for election until 2020...

    MADISON, WI — A bomb threat was made to Gov. Scott Walker's office Monday afternoon. The Dane County court received a letter from an inmate in the Wisconsin prison system. The Department of Administration, which oversees security at the state Capitol police, told WISN 12 News the letter stated there was a bomb threat to the governor's office. The Capitol Police Department was notified, and at 2:45 p.m. Monday, a Capitol police K-9 unit searched the area. No explosive was found, and area was cleared. A source in the governor's office confirmed that staff was evacuated for a short time....

    MADISON, WI - The day after Valentine's Day, Derrick Lamont Moore stood silent in front of a Dane County Commissioner who looked at his computer screen to learn the story of the 33-year-old Madison resident known as "Man-Man." The felony retail theft charge Moore faced was the 14th time he had been charged with a crime in Dane County in the last two and a half years and a News 3 Investigation shows he's not even the most-arrested and most-charged individual the county's seen in that time. A review of thousands of Dane County court records show 263 people in...
  • Why Didn't President 0bama Close The Wage Gap?

    Independent Women's Forum ^ | April 4, 2018 | Carrie L. Lukas
    Organizers of next week's “Equal Pay Day”—the day created to signify when women have finally earned enough to make up for last year's wage gap—want the public to believe that the gap between men and women's earnings would be erased if only we had political leaders fully committed to women's equality and the right laws and regulations on the books. But if that's true, then why didn't the wage gap disappear under President Obama? Undoubtedly, Equal Pay Day champions—and groups that creation petitions and send out memes under the title “The Resistance” —are relieved to be able to use this...

    California is, without a doubt, legally part of the United States of America. But for anyone not living there and peering in from the outside, it can frequently look like an alien civilization. Yet another tale of the strange and bizarre comes to us from Mark Vallianatos of LAplus (a “think tank focused on planning and housing”) writing at the LA Times. The bee in Mark’s bonnet has to do with the amount of property in the Los Angeles area which is zoned for single-family homes. (I know this is sounding as if it’s going to be as thrilling as...
  • Wisconsin’s Supreme Court Election Is Going To Be A Barnburner

    [Governor] Scott Walker’s (R, WI) fight with his state’s judiciary over his efforts to avoid two state legislative special elections — which he has now abandoned — hasn’t been the only Wisconsin news involving judges or elections. Next Tuesday voters will decide a contest for a position on the state’s Supreme Court, and it looks to be an unlikely barnburner. It’s actually a regular, not a special, election, despite its isolated timing; the state’s judicial elections have their own timetable. It’s also not technically a partisan battle; it’s officially a nonpartisan race in this hyperpartisan state. And the outcome won’t...
  • Sacramento Woman Says She's Selling Her House, But Not To a Trump Voter

    A woman in Sacramento is selling her home – just not, apparently, to a Trump supporter. CBS Sacramento reports: The homeowner has a political preference in mind for the next owner of her house, which has been in her family for decades. “She entertained people from all walks of life,” said the homeowner who asked we not use her name for fear of retaliation. “I told her [the realtor] that I didn’t want her to sell it to a Trump supporter,” said the woman. While it may seem like California is a fairly safe place to snub Trump voters, it’s...
  • Utah’s 'free range' law necessary in today's punitive parenting culture

    This week, parents in one state can breathe a sigh of relief. Utah Governor Gary Herbert has made parenting a lot easier by signing a bill that legalizes “free-range” parenting. Free-range parenting allows children to play without the constant and close supervision of their parents or another adult. Devotees believe children benefit from more freedom and learn vital decision making skills while playing at parks, walking to school, or wandering the neighborhood, without a parent hovering over them. The bill’s sponsor, Utah state Senator Lincoln Fillmore recognized the benefits of free-range parenting saying, “kids need to wonder about the world,...

    What might have been a smooth ride to Congress for Donna Shalala is instead turning into a demolition derby. In an open congressional seat in Florida that represents one of the Democratic Party’s best pickup chances in the nation, fellow Democrats are bashing the former Clinton administration Cabinet secretary, accusing her of collaborating with the enemy by contributing to Republican candidates. Two of Shalala’s seven primary opponents joined together Thursday to criticize her for personally contributing $21,500 to Florida Republicans running for state, local and federal offices over the past decade — including GOP Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who held the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | March 15, 2018 | Caitlin Yilek
    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway laughed off Hillary Clinton’s comments that white married women felt pressured by the men in their lives to vote for President Trump. “She basically is again insulting half of the country,” Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday. “Let me tell you something, lady, the idea that I or other women like me have to ask our husbands how to vote, it’s really a joke.” Conway then told Clinton to stop acting like she’s an advocate for women. “Stop pretending you’re a feminist, you’re for equality, you’re for fairness to women, and then running around...

    Parents across the country are being urged to let their children participate in the National School Walkout on March 14. Yet, few parents (and kids!) understand the walkout’s true mission. At my children’s elementary school in Northern Virginia, school officials are telling parents the walkout is meant to memorialize the 17 victims of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Yet, according to the National School Walkout website, the real mission of the walkout is to demand Congress pass more restrictive gun laws. The website specifically states: “Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation...

    125 people, including some high school students, have contracted HIV, syphilis or both in one of the largest sexually transmitted infection “clusters” discovered in Milwaukee, health care advocates confirmed to the Journal Sentinel. “This is an epidemic people are not talking about, and it leads to people taking unnecessary risks,” said Melissa Ugland, a public health consultant who works with a number of local organizations that focus on public health. There has been no announcement to the general public from the Milwaukee Health Department as of Tuesday. Fewer than 10% of the 125 people who tested positive are Milwaukee Public...

    If your business plan is to find a dark corner of the internet marketplace and sell kitschy anti-Trump art etched in sadness, then you’re too late. Rosie O’Donnell has beat you there. Inspired by her feelings of rage and disappointment, the virulently anti-Trump celebrity has started selling her own personal resistance artwork. What started out as modest doodles on her phone to help her cope with the crushing weight of reality, has become a way for Rosie to make money and donate it to Democrats and other anti-trump causes. These schizoid doodles, titled “scaredTRUMP” have been printed on 8-by-8 inch...

    As with all historic tipping points, it seems inevitable in retrospect: Of course it was the young people, the actual victims of the slaughter, who have finally begun to turn the tide against guns in this country. Kids don’t have money and can’t vote, and until now burying a few dozen a year has apparently been a price that lots of Americans were willing to pay to hold onto the props of their pathetic role-playing fantasies. But they forgot what adults always forget: that our children grow up, and remember everything, and forgive nothing. Those kids have suddenly understood how...
  • Wisconsin, Texas Lead 20 States in New Lawsuit to Take Down Obamacare

    MADISON, Wis. – The rickety legal case for Obamacare’s core mandate just might be about to topple – along with the entire law. Wisconsin and Texas on Monday took the lead in filing a new 20-state lawsuit alleging that Obamacare is unconstitutional now that the law’s individual tax penalty has been repealed. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld Obamacare in 2012 on the shaky notion that the law’s individual mandate and associated fine for going uninsured was actually a tax, which Congress has the power to lay and collect. But a sweeping Republican tax reform package passed in December – in...
