  • Bloomberg’s White Whale

    There is something of Captain Ahab about Michael Bloomberg these days — the former mayor of New York having adopted the profile of a neurotic and fevered old man whose long and checkered career has not yet managed to sate him, and whose ambition will be truly realized only when, finally, he captures his whale and avenges his bruised ego. Alas, yesterday evening, in Milwaukee, Wis., satisfaction eluded him once again, that Milwaukee County’s Sheriff David Clarke — an outspoken apostle of the right to keep and bear arms, and opponent of all that Bloomberg holds dear — winning his...
  • David Clarke defeats Chris Moews in sheriff's race (in spite of Bloomberg's $150,000 ad buy )

    Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. edged Milwaukee police Lt. Chris Moews early Wednesday in a Democratic primary race that drew national attention and more than $600,000 in outside spending. Clarke led by more than 4,700 votes with just the absentee ballots in the city of Milwaukee left to count, and shortly before midnight, Moews refused to concede. Shortly thereafter, Clarke told supporters he felt good about his chances but would not declare victory until all ballots were counted.

    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's political action committee, Independence USA, has purchased $150,833 in television ads in an effort to defeat Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and support his opponent, Milwaukee police Lt. Chris Moews. In response to the news of Bloomberg's ads, Clarke said in a statement: "I trust the voters. The voters can't be bought." The ad buys by Bloomberg's PAC come on top of $400,000 in media ads purchased by the Greater Wisconsin Committee to try to beat Clarke, who is seeking his fourth term in Tuesday's Democratic primary election. Also on Friday, Citizens...

    Greetings in Freedom, Ordinarily a County Sheriff's election wouldn't be notable for the larger state. In this case however, I'd like to share what is going on in Milwaukee County because the Sheriff's race here has drastic implications for the entire state and country. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke rocked the boat here in SE Wisconsin and nationally when he issued public service announcements in 2013 that encouraged people to take responsibility for their own safety including training to use a firearm in self defense. His public service announcements went viral because while self-defense is only common sense, its extremely...
  • Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke kicks some liberal butt at NRA convention

    Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke will surely have a target on his back now after his superb comments at the annual NRA convention in Indianapolis. As reported by The Blaze, Clarke revealed the seven words he would add to the Second Amendment: “Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.” What Sheriff Clarke again demonstrates is for conservatives it’s nothing to do with race — it’s all about individual character. His comments about amending the Constitution were aimed at former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who said in his recent book that he would change the Second Amendment by adding five...

    Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is calling proposals to seize firearms unconstitutional and warns of dire consequences if such plans are enacted. “This is about attacking the Second Amendment, it’s about going after the wrong crowd,”. Clarke blasted gun-control proposals triggered by presidential executive orders and said he would not enforce unconstitutional laws. “First of all, to me that would be an act of tyranny,”. ‘So the people in Milwaukee County do not have to worry about me enforcing some sort of order that goes out and collects everybody’s handgun, or rifles, or any kind of firearm and makes them...

    Scroll down a bit to download the PSA. I can't do a hot link to the file. It's a MP3 file, you can get at the source. This sheriff is one of the good guys. This has gone viral. The lefties have their panties in a wad over this PSA. HAH!! I’m Sheriff David Clarke, and I want to talk to you about something personal…your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game, but are you ready? With officers laid-off and furloughed, simply calling 9-1-1 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can...

    One rule of thumb when hosting a radio talk show: don’t bring an audio clip on the air “cold,” i.e., without having heard it yourself. That’s probably especially true when you’re guest-hosting for a good friend and mentor. However, after Hot Air reader Tim R sent this to me near the end of the first hour of last night’s Hugh Hewitt show, I asked Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson to check it out for hour two as I was wrapping up an interview with John Eastman on the recess-appointment ruling. In the break, I asked, “Can we use that?” Duane answered, “Oh,...

    Help from the bullpen Now that he has a whole lot of time on his hands, ousted Milwaukee Brewers President Ulice Payne Jr. has found something new to promote: The mayoral candidacy of Sheriff David Clarke Jr. Payne, who has been keeping a low public profile since his soap-opera dismissal as boss of the Brew Crew, will emcee a Clarke fund-raiser next week. The campaign hopes this gala at the Italian Community Center, featuring ex-congressman J.C. Watts, will be a biggie, as some 10,000 invitations were sent out. The minimum donation is $25, though fat cats who cough up a...

    Finley, others say sheriff is best candidate for the next Milwaukee mayor Waukesha - Some of the biggest names in Waukesha County Republican politics are backing Milwaukee mayoral candidate David A. Clarke Jr. - regardless of what party label he wears. Waukesha County Executive Dan Finley, county GOP Chairman Don Taylor and others toasted Clarke and opened their pocketbooks during a fund-raiser for his campaign Wednesday at a Waukesha hotel. For those supporters, the fact that Clarke is a declared Democrat seems to matter very little. "I absolutely believe he's the best choice for mayor of Milwaukee," Finley said Thursday....

    Conventional wisdom is right - it's a three-way race for Milwaukee mayor. Tom Barrett. David Clarke. Undecided. A new poll paid for by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce found that 29% of city voters plan to vote for Barrett, a longtime north side congressman and failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate. Another 24% said they'll go for Clarke, the county sheriff who went from being just another cop to a conservative media darling in less than two years.
