    "WALKER, LA - The frustrated mayor of Walker, Louisiana said Tuesday that the flooding event in his city was "man-made" and announced plans to file suit against the state of Louisiana and federal government. Walker Mayor Rick Ramsey said a six-foot tall concrete barrier that was put along I-12 when the interstate was expanded last year essentially put the city of Walker "into a bowl" because he said the barrier prevents water from draining out of Walker. "When the Amite River went up, it hit that wall," Ramsey said. "We have video evidence that shows the concrete barrier and...

"The people who live in the neighborhood want police — they want the police in Milwaukee and the sheriff's department to step up and protect them.

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday he agrees that delegates to the Republican national convention should be free to vote their conscience, even if that means not supporting presumptive nominee Donald Trump. Walker is a former presidential candidate and a delegate to the convention next month. He told reporters following a groundbreaking at a sausage factory that he will follow Wisconsin Republican Party rules and cast his ballot for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the first round because Cruz won the state primary.

    After a big win in Wisconsin earlier this month, it looks like the all-important statewide delegate selection process could leave Team Cruz at a serious disadvantage. I’m told by several people familiar with the situation that the constitution of the Republican Party of Wisconsin gives the presidential campaign that wins the state’s popular vote the prerogative of picking 15 of the 18 statewide delegates and 18 of the state’s 18 alternate delegates to the Republican National Convention. Though Governor Scott Walker endorsed Ted Cruz and clearly has a close working relationship with the Wisconsin GOP, the Republican Party of Wisconsin...

    Wisconsin’s recent primary election gave Democrats another opportunity to take political shots at Governor Scott Walker’s 2011 signature collective-bargaining reform law, Act 10. Curbing the power of the public-sector unions had damaged the state, according to Senator Bernie Sanders. Not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton declared that weakening collective bargaining was “making it more difficult for families.” This “analysis” of Walker’s reforms might play well at a political rally, but it ignores the evidence on the ground from the last five years. It all began on February 11, 2011, when Governor Walker declared that the state was broke. Years of...

Speaking to columnist Kirsten Powers, Trump spoke favorably about Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) who he famously feuded with before defeating him in his home state.... “There are people I have in mind in terms of vice president. I just haven’t told anybody names,” he said. “[I] do like Marco. I do like (John) Kasich. … I like (Scott) Walker actually in a lot of ways. I hit him very hard. … But I’ve always liked him.”

    Donald Trump can only wish that every Wisconsin county had been La Crosse County. While U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz picked up 48 percent of the million-plus ballots cast in Wisconsin’s Republican presidential primary Tuesday to Trump’s 35 percent, La Crosse County voters favored Trump 41.4 to 37.2 percent. And University of Wisconsin-La Crosse political scientist Joe Heim was a little stunned by the action at the polling places, calling La Crosse County’s turnout of 61.8 percent of registered voters “pleasantly shocking.” What didn’t surprise Heim was Cruz’s overall performance. “He had the right strategy,” Heim said of the Texas senator...

    Donald Trump, who previously claimed that nobody would ever work with Ted Cruz, lately complains that too many people are working with Ted Cruz. He also says Cruz is being used by the establishment for the sole purpose of stopping the Trump Train (a fitting nickname for something hurtling to such spectacular wreckage.) His supporters and surrogates love to float the names of those who will be swooped in at the convention to replace both himself and Cruz. One of those names is Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, about whom they’ve been particularly conspiratorial-minded the last few days, for obvious...

    MILWAUKEE — In her Wisconsin debut as a Donald Trump surrogate, Sarah Palin was met with tepid applause and stone-faced silence Friday night at a Milwaukee County Republican gathering. In contrast, the 750 Republicans at American Serb Hall cheered enthusiastically for Sen. Ted Cruz, who was introduced by Gov. Scott Walker and talk radio host Vicki McKenna. The contrasting receptions illustrated why the Texas senator has surged past the real estate mogul and reality TV celebrity in the latest polls, especially in southeastern Wisconsin. Palin opened with a call for unity among the candidates in supporting former Green Bay Packer...

    Ted Cruz will deal Donald Trump an emphatic defeat in Wisconsin next week. That’s according to The POLITICO Caucus – a panel of activists, strategists and operatives in 10 key battleground states. Nearly nine-in-10 Republicans in those states chose Cruz as the likely winner of next Tuesday’s Wisconsin presidential primary. Among Democrats, Caucus members by a nearly two-to-one margin predicted Bernie Sanders would defeat Hillary Clinton. In the Republican race, insiders said Cruz has surged ahead of Trump in Wisconsin thanks to GOP Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement and an electorate that isn’t as favorable to Trump as those in other...

The Texas senator took to Twitter on Sunday to urge his followers to donate money to help retire Walker's lingering 2016 campaign debts. "I stand with my friend @Scott Walker & hope you will too!" Cruz tweeted to his "#CruzCrew." Cruz then linked to a donation page for Walker's campaign.

"I just think there's no doubt that (Walker) will swing votes to Cruz with his endorsement," predicts Sandy Rios, a talk radio-show host for American Family Radio and a spokesperson for the American Family Association. That's because Walker is popular in his home state of Wisconsin, Rios says, including among the so-called "establishment" Republicans who trust their governor. Current polls show Cruz...

Ted Cruz with a 10 percent lead over the billionaire "anti-establishment" Trump. But what the numbers might underscore more than anything is most conservatives in Wisconsin like Gov.

But Paul's decision to drop out of the race today (before New Hampshire) in order to help unify the party to defeat Trump, shows that he, like Scott Walker, is a true Republican who believes in conservative principles, and for that he should be commended. See, there are two types of people who call themselves Republicans. The first are those who...

The investigators "will go directly to depose specific individuals in agencies who generated the highly classified materials." This is the prudent and smart thing to do in order to get specifics on the classification authority and to compare original documents with those that were stripped...

    FENNIMORE (WKOW) -- Despite polls showing billionaire businessman Donald Trump leading the Republican presidential race in Iowa, Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) feels Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has an edge in the Hawkeye State. Iowa voters will caucus next Monday night in a race seen as pivotal to Sen. Cruz's chances for the GOP nomination. In past month, Trump has gone from trailing Sen. Cruz to leading him by six points in an average of recent polls. But Gov. Walker agrees with many experts who believe Cruz still has an advantage, because of the ground game he's set up in Iowa...

    The night before the March on Washington, on 28 August 1963, Martin Luther King asked his aides for advice about the next day's speech. "Don't use the lines about 'I have a dream', his adviser Wyatt Walker told him. "It's trite, it's cliche. You've used it too many times already."

    New York real-estate developer Donald Trump has dominated the Republican nomination campaign for months -- but his strongest support doesn't come from any of the organized blocs in the Republican party. He polls well among conservative and evangelical voters, to be sure, running competitively against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) with these voters. He draws considerable support, also, from self-identified "liberal"or "moderate" Republicans. In fact, in the latest Quinnipiac poll, his biggest polling margin against his GOP rivals was among moderate and liberal Republicans. But his strongest support comes from Republicans who used to be Democrats, according to new polling analysis...

    see link Conan, semi-retired ... tells me that as far as he knows the term is meant to connote genitalia. And he doesn’t think his usage makes Trump’s okay.
  • Does being 'Schlonged' make Hillary a 'Bimbo Eruption?'

    **SNIP** But then again, the truth is that, especially when dealing with a "brazen genius" like Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton could use a pantsuit leg up. That's why being a perpetually-offended woman might be a powerful weapon in 2016. In fact, a shrewd calculation may be the reason Hillary conveniently forgot to mention that her husband, based solely on his reputation as an adulterous fornicator, earned a starring role in an ISIS propaganda/recruitment video. Instead, the woman who habitually gets her video stories confused insisted at the last Democratic debate that anti-Muslim videos starring Donald Trump were...

    Turned Monica Lewinsky 'Into A Humidor' [VIDEO] Political commentator Kurt Schlichter argued that with Hillary Clinton's enabling, Bill Clinton was able to turn "the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor." Tuesday on CNN Newsroom hosted by CNN anchor Don Lemon, guests Terra Grant and Schlicher were discussing Donald Trump's comment that Barack Obama "schlonged" Hillary Clinton in 2008. When Schlichter kept bringing up Bill past sexual history, Lemon ended the interview early. Lemon asked Schlichter if it was appropriate for Trump to suggest Obama "schlonged" Hillary and Schlichter explained, "Don, it's going to take...
  • Politico Performs Deep 'Schlong' Analysis

    Just how much did Ben Zimmer chuckle while writing this "schlong" analysis for Politico? Well, no matter how much he was laughing, he did manage to write in a serious tone on the subject...which made it come off even funnier than was probably intended. At first Zimmer slams Donald Trump for his use of the term "schlonged" but ends up exonerating him when other examples of the slang word being used as a synonym for "defeat" were found.
