    RACINE COUNTY — Paul Ryan's primary challenger released a television ad Wednesday criticizing the House speaker over immigration. The ad features Julie Golvach, whose son was killed by an undocumented immigrant, outside of Ryan's home, according to news release from challenger Paul Nehlen's campaign. Golvach says in the ad that "Paul Ryan's home behind me has a fence" and blames "Ryan and other politicians" for not protecting the border. Nehlen's campaign called the ad buy a "significant purchase," though it did not disclose the amount. The ad will run throughout the 1st Congressional District, which includes Racine County, on cable...

    <p>Scott Walker is already thinking about how to defeat Hillary Clinton. “You gotta move it from a personality race, because if it’s a personality race, you got a third Clinton term,” the Wisconsin governor told a lunchtime crowd of about 30 last Tuesday assembled at the Lakewood, N.J., home of Rich Roberts, one of his biggest financial backers. “The only way we win that election is to transform her personality to Washington versus the rest of us. Senator Clinton is all about Washington, everything about her is all about Washington.”</p>

But he doesn’t think you deserve the same right. The press event on Saturday was organized by both the Remembrance Project—a non-profit that represents the victims of illegal alien crime and advocates for border security— and Wisconsin businessman, Paul Nehlen, who is running to unseat Ryan in Wisconsin’s August 9th primary. The Paul Nehlen campaign posted photos from the event.

    As the apparent public revolt against establishment elites continues to gain momentum, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen is aiming to bring down the establishment's main man in Congress: House Speaker Paul Ryan. Running on a pro-Constitution, pro-jobs platform, the outsider candidate is closing in on Ryan, according to polls. With the tide increasingly turning against politicians viewed as part of the establishment — often ridiculed as “Rino” for being a “Republican In Name Only,” Ryan is the epitome of an establishment politician — media reports suggest the embattled Speaker of the House is getting nervous. Some polls even show Nehlen in...

    Many political experts say House Speaker Paul Ryan will beat his Republican challenger during Wisconsin's August 9 partisan primary. Matt Streb isn't so sure. Streb, a political science professor at Northern Illinois University, notes that Sarah Palin endorsed Ryan's challenger, Paul Nehlin, because Ryan was slow to endorse Donald Trump, the GOP's presidential nominee. But Streb isn't thinking about Palin. During an interview with WNIJ, Streb raised the specter of another House leader who lost a primary. "You're going to make me say Eric Cantor again," he laughs. Cantor, then-House Majority leader, was defeated by a Tea Party challenger in...

    MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin residents who can't obtain photo identification will still be able to vote in November's general election, a federal judge ruled Tuesday, carving out an exception to state law that requires all voters to show photo IDs at the polls. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman in Milwaukee issued a preliminary injunction that allows people who haven't been able to obtain IDs to vote in the Nov. 8 election if they sign an affidavit explaining why they couldn't get identification. But the judge declined to make that option available for the Aug. 9 primary, saying state election officials...

    July 06, 2016, 03:50 pm Reid: ‘Time to move on' from Clinton email scandal By Jordain Carney Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday slammed Republicans for focusing their fire on the FBI for not recommending charges against Hillary Clinton. "It's over. It's time to move on," Reid said. "Republican attempts to continue their political hit job are just that, they're political." Reid's remarks are the first time he's weighed in on the Clinton email scandal since FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday morning that he would recommend no charges for Clinton's use of a private email server while...

    (CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday stopped short of calling for Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald to resign over his comments comparing wait times at VA clinics to wait times at amusement parks. A reporter told Ryan that Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) is calling on McDonald to resign. "Do you think it goes to that level, that he should resign?" the reporter asked Ryan. "I don't know if he should resign. He should clarify his comments," Ryan said. "He should show some empathy for our veterans that he's supposed to serve. This really is just beyond the pale,...

    Donald Trump's campaign keeps coming up with excuses for his controversial Star of David tweet — but even House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks it was anti-Semitic. "Look, anti-Semitic images, they’ve got no place in a presidential campaign," Ryan told WTMJ's Charlie Skyes Tuesday about Trump's anti-Hillary Clinton meme — which showed a Star of David over a pile of money. "Candidates should know that."

    Donald Trump needs to "clean up" his social media act, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday. The declaration comes after the latest instance of the presumptive Republican nominee drawing a backlash for one of his tweets, namely the six-pointed star on a field of money next to Hillary Clinton's face and the words, "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!" “Look, anti-Semitic images, they’ve got no place in a presidential campaign. Candidates should know that. The tweet’s been deleted. I don’t know what flunky put this up there. They’ve obviously got to fix that," Ryan told WTMJ's Charlie Sykes on his radio show....

    In a nine-word per curiam decision, eight justices of the United States Supreme Court have revealed they are deadlocked in a 4 to 4 divide on the new immigration procedures of the Obama administration, with its executive decision to not deport the immigrant parents of children born in the United States (thus citizens) and give them legal status but less than citizenship in the process. The State of Texas, joined by 25 others states, filed a lawsuit to block this executive action, which affects between 4 and 5 million immigrants in the United States. The case was before the Supreme...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan sought to present a united front with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on trade issues, despite their differing perspectives on international trade deals. "He wants to get good trade agreements," Ryan told The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in an interview Wednesday. "So do I." Ryan's remarks come shortly after Trump sharply criticized trade agreements in a speech at a western Pennsylvania Rust Belt town earlier this week, blaming globalization for having "wiped out totally, totally our middle class." Trump further called the landmark Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade deal that involves a "death blow for American...

    Nurses with convictions for crimes of violence, sexual offenses and drug thefts are able to evade detection in six states, which have far fewer protections in place than most states when it comes to licensing healthcare workers ... While candidates for jobs such as massage therapists or private investigators are required to submit a fingerprint for checks against state and FBI conviction records, the nurse licensing systems in Colorado, Wisconsin, New York, Vermont, Maine and Hawaii rely on self-disclosure and complaints. The porous process allows nurses disqualified from obtaining licensure in other states to obtain a license in one of...

    Once upon a time, Democrats would sit-in to press for civil rights. Today, they sit-in to take civil rights away. How else to describe the goal of last week's 24-hour sit-in by House Democrats? They took to the floor Wednesday demanding a vote on gun control legislation in the wake of last week's terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando. Gun ownership is a right. Due process of law is a right. The government needs to meet a very high threshold before denying citizens either one. Rep. John Lewis led the protest, which devolved into screaming matches early Thursday....
