    MILWAUKEE (AP) — An officer shot an armed male student Monday morning in a classroom at a suburban Milwaukee high school after the suspect pointed a gun at officers, a police chief said. A Waukesha South High School student informed a school resource officer that a classmate had a handgun at around 10:17 a.m., Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack said. He said the resource officer went to the classroom to confront the 17-year-old suspect and move other students in the room to safety. Waukesha police and sheriff’s deputies soon arrived at the school and tried to de-escalate the situation to...

    A 42-year-old man suffered second-degree burns after an unknown suspect threw acid on him during an altercation. Investigators say that an argument broke out between two people in the 2600 block of S. 13th Street about 8:30 p.m. Friday. The fight escalated when the victim, 42-year-old Mahud V, had acid thrown at him causing serious injuries. Mahud says that the acid burned through two layers of his coat. "I don't know the guy. I never saw him in my life and he did this to me. Who carries around a bottle of acid?," Mahud said. Witnesses say that the attacker...

    Say, that’s a real nice police department you got there. Real nice. You know, it’d be a real shame if something happened to it. Like what? Oh, I don’t know. You just never know when positions might be eliminated or things like that. But that doesn’t have to happen. Just give us more money by letting us raise your taxes and that nice police department you got will be just fine. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is sounding an awful lot like The Godfather’s Tom Hagen these days as he tries to pressure both the State Legislature and Milwaukee County voters...

    It will be a day at the beach for President Trump’s re-election campaign on Labor Day. The campaign is taking to the skies on Labor Day to fly banners over beach-goers to show its thanks for workers fueling the economy. “Labor Day is the perfect time to thank American workers for everything they do for our country,” said Tim Murtaugh, Trump campaign communications director. “Under President Trump’s policies, the economy is strong and growing, and more Americans are working than ever before. The American economy is the envy of the world and our American workers are the best on the...

    The Milwaukee Police Department has been the latest to adopt the increasingly popular Sig Sauer P320 handgun system. (Photo: Sig)Police in Wisconsin’s largest city moving forward will be using Sig Sauer’s modular P320 platform as their newest duty handgun. The Milwaukee Police Department’s over 1,800 officers have been hanging up their current Smith & Wesson M&Ps in exchange for the new Sig. The move continues the P320’s adoption by a number of law enforcement agencies from coast-to-coast, as well as the military who use the series as the M17 & M18 Modular Handgun System. “We chose the Sig Sauer P320...

    MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — While communities around the country brace themselves for immigration raids promised for this weekend by President Donald Trump, Latinx voters and immigration activists say they need to hear from Democrats that they oppose not just Trump’s immigration agenda but also the raids and deportations carried out under President Barack Obama. “I also want a country that’s safe and sovereign, but my husband wasn’t a criminal, he wasn’t a rapist, he wasn’t a drug dealer,” said Cecilia Garcia, 44, a US citizen whose husband was deported in 2012 after being pulled over for an expired license plate, despite...

    One of the only things that can ruin hitting a home run is watching your ball fly over the fence and hit a car, but that made things even better for Milwaukee Brewer Mike Moustakas on Sunday. Moustakas slammed one into center field in the eighth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates that broke a 2-2 tie and landed on the roof of a Toyota Rav4. It wasn’t parked there by a clueless owner but was part of a promotion to give it away if a Brewer hit it with a ball, which Moustakas learned after the fact."I didn't know that I actually...

    If I owned all the real estate in the world, I wouldn’t feel so powerful as I do on the streets of this socialist city,” declared former New York City councilman Baruch Vladeck when he arrived in Milwaukee in 1932 for the Socialist Party’s national convention in that city. Norman Thomas, the famed civil-rights and economic-justice campaigner who became the party’s presidential nominee that year, celebrated the fact that he was chosen for that honor in a city governed by Socialists. The success of Milwaukee under then-Mayor Dan Hoan, Thomas said, was proof that the party’s social-democratic “dreams will someday...

    VIDEO The Democrat National Committee chose Milwaukee as the site for its 2020 convention. Why? For two main reason. One is that Hillary Clinton was too damn lazy to visit Wisconsin during her 2016 presidential campaign and ended up losing that state. The other reason is due to the deviousness of Tom Perez who went through the pretense that Miami (and Houston) were also in contention as convention sites until this week even though he probably knew since at least last summer that it was going to be Milwaukee.
  • A little beer spilled on Milwaukee 2020 Democratic National Convention agreement

    There are many angles to the news of the City of Milwaukee getting the Democratic National Convention next year in the Brew City - such as the fact that it may be the most important event in the city's history. This beer-related angle is not one of the most important, but it may be the most appropriate: That the contract is blessed in beer. During the official announcement of the Milwaukee 2020 Democratic convention, the parties involved signed an official agreement to host it next July 13-16. What landed on the contract? Beer, apparently a slight amount spilled by Lieutenant...

    MILWAUKEE, Wis., February 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Archbishop Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee condemned Catholics in government who approve radical abortion policies but also blamed Catholic voters who vote for “anti-life” politicians. Archbishop Listecki noted that New York approved a law that allows the abortion of babies right up to the moment of birth and after. “As some have explained,” he wrote, “even if the attempted abortion is botched and the baby born alive, there would be a right under the law to ‘euthanize’ the baby. Is this the witness to Christianity and its teaching that our forefathers envisioned for our...

    VIDEO The Democrats are now down to three cities as possible 2020 convention sites. Houston, Milwaukee, and Miami Beach. It sounds like Houston is now out of the running but, unfortunately, the conventional wisdom now leans towards Milwaukee. Big mistake as I point out in this video. If Miami arena is chosen as the convention site (with most of the delegates staying in nearby Miami Beach), your humble correspondent would have the ability to LIVESTREAM the lunacy surrounding the Democrat convention next year.

    For the first time in history Wisconsin is the home state of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, 1st District Congressman Paul D. Ryan of Janesville. Ryan, who ran as the Republican candidate for Vice-President in 2012, was also the first Wisconsinite to appear on a major party national ticket. Ryan’s district includes the Milwaukee County communities of Oak Creek, Franklin, Hales Corners and Greendale. Altogether four congressmen — half of the state’s delegation — represent some portion of Milwaukee County, although it has only 16 per cent of the State’s population and less than 2 per cent of...

    With the race for governor hanging in the balance, Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said his office still had more than 45,000 uncounted ballots shortly after midnight Wednesday. Christenson said his office had just received 7,800 ballots from Wauwatosa, which were delayed because of a problem with a computer modem. Officials were reconciling those numbers and would soon release the totals. Christenson said he was still waiting to receive 45,000 outstanding absentee ballots from the City of Milwaukee. Milwaukee city officials put the figure even higher, saying the outstanding votes total 47,000. That amount includes 36,000 in-person absentee ballots and...
