Preston Bluntson, 36, was arrested and charged with intoxication and disruptive behavior after an American Airlines flight from Milwaukee to Charlotte on Saturday. He was detained by David A.

    We already knew that Barack Hussein Obama was desperate to make sure that Hillary Clinton wins the presidential election over Donald Trump, but even we didn’t think he’d stoop this low. According to The Political Insider, a movement has started to have illegal immigrants join “citizenship clinics,” which would allow them a pathway to become registered voters. The Washington Post reported that these clinics were an unprecedented effort” that would allow illegals to “presumably (vote) against Donald Trump.” The Obama administration has always denied playing any role in these clinics.

    The race across the combined battlegrounds is as tight as can be, tied 42 percent to 42 percent.  Clinton was up one point last week, and was up two points back on Labor Day weekend.

Fifty-five percent of battleground voters want to see “big changes” in the nation’s politics and economy in the next few years. Forty-three percent want “some changes” and only 2 percent think things are fine and not in need of much change. Trump leads by a wide margin on being trusted to change Washington: Forty-seven...

    Gov. Scott Walker is drawing sharp criticism for his plan to delay highway projects, including the Zoo Interchange in Milwaukee. In the past, the governor has hailed the interchange as key to state businesses that transport products throughout the region. Walker mentioned MillerCoors in his 2013 State of the State address. "MillerCoors is in a hyper-competitive industry. They're looking to find a competitive advantage: who can get a cold beer on a bar in Madison or Green Bay or even Chicago, the fastest.

The complaint, filed late Friday by Breakaway Courier Systems, came as Berkshire's Applied Underwriters unit faces scrutiny over its workers' compensation policies, including some that have been banned by California, Vermont and Wisconsin. Breakaway, with about 300 employees, accused Berkshire and Applied of "siphoning" premiums through a web of illegal shell companies, with diverted premiums going to unlicensed out-of-state insurers. The plan amounted to a "reverse Ponzi scheme" where unsuspecting employers expecting to buy affordable...

Those Ipsos state polls show Trump clinching leads in New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Maine. That’s really big because President Barack Obama won all those states in 2012. Obama won Wisconsin by 6.7 points, Michigan by 9.5 points, Maine by 15.1 points, and New Hampshire by 5.8 points. The Real Clear Politics poll-aggregation site shows Trump behind Clinton in Michigan by eight percentage points, but Ipsos shows Trump just ahead...

Kaepernick did not stand for the national anthem before the 49ers preseason game at Levi's Stadium, although the move went unnoticed by most at the time. ProFootballTalk.com reported the story more than an hour after the game, and no reporters asked Kaepernick about it following the 49ers 21-10 loss to the Packers.But Kaepernick's action prompted the 49ers to issue a statement acknowledging that he sat during the anthem, and defending...

They have very different opinions about how law enforcement should be carried out. Chief Edward Flynn expresses the view long prevalent among those who emphasize the social "root causes" of crime, such as income disparities and educational disparities, as well as the larger society's neglect of black communities. Chief Flynn puts less emphasis on aggressive police action and more on community outreach and gun control. Sheriff David Clarke represents...

He stood for law and order against bank robbers, cattle rustlers and horse thieves all trying to disrupt the peace. A contemporary and real-life version of those fictional characters is Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Clarke has been trying to restore law and order after several nights of rioting following the shooting death of 23-year-old Sylville Smith by a Milwaukee police officer. Smith had a lengthy criminal record, longer than some people's resumes. He...

Local news reported that the 23-year-old suspect was not only armed but that he also defied orders to drop his gun. The Milwaukee police chief refused to identify the officer involved, but did say that he was "black." At one time, such a fact would suggest that racism and police brutality were not at play.

    The burning buildings, smashed police cars and scuffles between police officers and angry protesters on Milwaukee’s north side over the weekend might have seemed like a spontaneous eruption. But for many in the city’s marginalized black community, it was an explosive release decades in the making. Milwaukee is one of the United States’ most segregated cities, where black men are incarcerated or unemployed at some of the highest rates in the country, and where the difference in poverty between black and white residents is about one and a half times the national average. There are barren lots and worn-down homes...

    An anti-white reign of Black Lives Matter terror consumed Milwaukee Saturday after a black cop shot a black, gun-wielding suspect for refusing to drop his weapon when lawfully commanded to do so. Gov. Scott Walker (R) activated Wisconsin's National Guard as a precaution but calm had apparently been restored Sunday. The officer who shot the suspect was African-American, police said. His name was not given but he was described as a 24-year-old who'd been with the police department for six years, the last three as an officer.

    When police identified Sylville Smith as the Milwaukee man shot by an officer Saturday, triggering a violent uprising on the city’s mostly black north side, Chief Edward Flynn cited Smith’s “lengthy criminal record.” Online court records showed multiple charges against the 23-year-old Smith dating back to 2013. One was as minor as retail theft — which was dismissed — and other less serious offenses included speeding, driving without insurance, driving with a suspended license or having open intoxicants in a vehicle. There were more serious charges. Smith was accused in a shooting last year and charged with recklessly endangering safety,...

    According to the government's official data, the number of unemployed black Americans is at its lowest since 2007 seemingly confirming President Obama's narrative that "everything is awesome." So, we wondered, if everything's awesome and everyone's got a job, why are black Americans rioting in Milwaukee? Here is the answer in one chart and one short sentence from a Milwaukee protester... Jobs are not fungible... Since President Obama was elected, black Americans may have seen their joblessness decline - but since President Obama was elected, income inequality for black Americans has soared... The solution is simple - as this young black...

    With neighbors sweeping debris from scorched businesses, and political and religious leaders urging calm, Milwaukee began to come to terms Sunday with the night of fire and violence that followed the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old armed suspect by a 24-year-old police officer. Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn confirmed that the police officer is African-American. So was the suspect, Sylville K. Smith
