    The student government of the University of Wisconsin-Madison unanimously passed a divestment resolution targeting companies operating in many countries that included an amendment specifically about Israel, JTA reported Thursday. The resolution, which passed Wednesday by the Associated Students of Madison by a 24-0 vote with two abstentions, calls on the university and its foundation to divest from companies involved in private prisons, arms manufacture, fossil fuels and border walls, and banks that “oppress marginalized communities.” The vote comes a month after a divestment resolution specifically targeting Israel failed to pass the student government and two weeks after the student government...

    James Madison Drinks, and Writes an ArticlePhilip Freneau had set the deadline for the December 22nd edition of the National Gazette, and James Madison found himself racing the hourglass. Freneau published the newspaper, dedicated to the positions of Thomas Jefferson’s faction within the Congress and the council around His Excellency, while working for the red-haired Secretary of State as a translator. Mr. Jefferson saw neither difficulty nor conflict with this arrangement. Freneau had labeled the men of Alexander Hamilton’s faction as Monarchists, Tories, and Anti-Republicans, claiming their role was to reverse the results of 1776. The Secretary of the Treasury...

    GOP lawmakers in Wisconsin are reportedly threatening to block additional state funding unless a new course at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, called “The Problem of Whiteness” is canceled. State Rep. Dave Murphy told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel he has told his staff to pore over university course offerings to make sure “they’re legit.” “We are adding to the polarization of the races in our state,” Murphy told the newspaper about the course. Murphy planned to push for more funding for the UW system in the next state budget, but said he would rethink that support if the university chose to...

    The following article was published in the Jewish World Review on November 16th of 2016. By Walter Williams For more than a half-century, it has become abundantly clear that our nation faces increasing irreconcilable differences. At the root is the fact that there is one group of Americans who mostly want to be left alone and live according to the rule of law and the dictates of the U.S. Constitution while another group of Americans wants to control the lives of others and ignore both the rule of law and constitutional restraints on the federal government. Should those Americans who...
  • Wisconsin Recount Results Day 10: 95% In, But Where’s Milwaukee & Madison?

    The latest update in the Wisconsin recount shows that 95% of all presidential ballots have now been counted, but there are still two glaring omissions: The City of Milwaukee and dozens of wards in the City of Madison. Both of those cities are populous Democratic and Hillary Clinton strongholds, and their recounted returns had not all been reported to the Wisconsin Election Commission as of December 10. The state must certify its results by December 13 or it risks its electoral votes not counting. There are 148,404 votes still missing from the public recount results posted so far, according to...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Republican congressman who derided Wisconsin's capital city as a communist haven is not backing down from his comments even as those in the city that prides itself as being "77 square miles surrounded by reality" take offense. Rep. Sean Duffy, of Wausau, called Madison a "communist community" in a recent Fox News interview and blasted the ongoing presidential recount. Duffy says, "It's a sad state of affairs for these Democrats who don't believe in democracy and freedom and free elections."

  • Police not convinced that post-election ‘Suck it up’ note was hate crime, as college claimed

    The College Fix ^ | 12-2-167 | Christian Montoya
    A Catholic college reported a crude Post-it note to city police as a hate crime because it told students to “suck it up” in response to Donald Trump’s election. First Amendment experts say that while Wisconsin’s Edgewood College can punish students for even constitutionally protected speech, it cannot seek to use police to punish such speech as a crime. And the police agreed. A spokesman for the Madison Police Department told The College Fix Thursday that a parole officer and detective already looked into the report and found “no immediate threat.” Hence, there’s no further case activity and “it’s not...

    At Edgewood College, police are investigating a post-it-note that was deemed a "hate crime" by college officials. The post-it-note says "Suck it up, pussies!" Whoever wrote it also drew a winking, tongue-out smiley face, like this: ;P The message is evidently one student's response to the Madison, Wisconsin, college's overwhelming dejection following Donald Trump's election to the presidency. College Vice President Tony Chambers sent a letter to campus condemning this "act of cowardly hatred" and "intimidation." He wrote: A group of cross-functional college staff representing campus security, student conduct, human resources, Title IX enforcement, and diversity and inclusion measures convened...

    Edgewood College is a private, co-educational liberal arts college in the Dominican Catholic tradition in Madison, Wisconsin, Tony Chambers, VP for Student Development, sent out a public notice regarding what the administration judged to be an "act of cowardly hatred" on campus. The document was picked up and shared by talk show host Vicki McKenna on her Twitter feed, with a link to the document at Scribd. A short time later it was discovered that Scribd had deleted the document. It is presently available on Flikr but who knows for how long. This document is a perfect illustration of the...

    This past weekend the Most Reverend Robert Morlino, Bishop of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin made an announcement of great liturgical importance. Going forward His Excellency will be offering all of his Masses at the Cathedral ad orientem. Make no mistake about it, this is a major development on the liturgical landscape of American Catholicism. While Bishop Morlino is a strong supporter of the Traditional Latin Mass, and has offered it publicly on numerous occasions, his recent announcement pertains to Masses offered in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. This is the positive manifestation of Robert Cardinal Sarah’s call...

    Michael Jackson, Prince, and Elvis would travel with a personal doctor who could administer needed life-saving drugs and attention during a crisis. Remember when you thought famous people like Michael Jackson and Elvis had good medical care? What’s Clinton on? Hillary appears to travel with her own Michael Jackson/Elvis style doctor. Who is he? We saw this first “doctor” or handler during Hillary’s recent freeze-up. You can see Hillary’s handler, who at first glance would not be considered the alpha male of the group, reassure Hillary, speak to her using hypnotic language, and then move the Secret Service Agents out...

    As the presidential campaign enters its final stages, probing questions have emerged about the health condition of Hillary Clinton. Hillary' bizarre, erratic behavior on the campaign trail (culminating with last week's perplexing "short-circuit" comment) has left many wondering whether she is seriously ill. Hillary has at multiple times had convulsions that appear to be seizures on camera, including a series of seemingly inexplicable coughing fits.

    The first week of August was a rough one for Donald Trump's campaign; by coincidence, it was also a busy one for Trump supporters, who see a media coverup protecting Hillary Clinton. Over the weekend, the Trump campaign released a Web ad that mocked Clinton's admission that she "short-circuited" by giving a misleading answer about the investigation into her emails. "She took a short-circuit in the brain," Trump said at a Saturday night rally. "She's got problems. Honestly, I don't think she's all there." At the same time, the Drudge Report, WorldNetDaily and a small army of would-be Twitter sleuths...

    Madison— Faced with delays and inflation over the past five years, four major state highway projects — including a Madison artery — have accumulated overruns in excess of $700 million. While some of these increases come from faulty cost estimates or unavoidable inflation, the new figures underline the obvious: Delays can be costly for Wisconsin taxpayers. When projects are paused because of financial challenges in the state's road fund, the price of materials, labor and real estate can rise. The numbers compiled by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel underline the urgency of a divisive issue for Wisconsin's Republican leaders: finding a...

    On February 18th, 1792, James Madison posted an anonymous squib in his newspaper, the National Gazette. He asked: May not governments be properly divided, according to their predominant spirit and principles, into three species of which the following are examples? First. A government operating by a permanent military force, which at once maintains the government and is maintained by it; which is at once the cause of burdens on the people and of submission in the people to their burdens. Such have been the governments under which human nature has groaned through every age. Such are the governments which still...

    If they care more about students than teachers’ unions, every school district in the country needs to pay attention to this: When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker gave the boot to teachers’ unions, liberals predicted a disaster of apocalyptic proportions: Teachers quitting, slack-jawed, uneducated students meandering down vacant downtowns that closed shop. It turns out, though, that Walker’s “Act 10” may have been the best thing to happen to schools and teachers in decades. That’s because not only is teacher pay up for the best students, but without burdensome union rules, school administrators are empowered to make real changes they need...
